Is this Hillary Clinton’s “No Controlling Legal Authority” Moment?
The news coming out just keeps getting worse and worse for Hillary Clinton. We all now know she was criminally dangerous in her handling of classified information, especially with respect to information gathered by actual human spies. These are people who are risking their lives for the country. She had this information on an insecure server on the Internet, and her excuse? She’s trying to | Read More »
State Department Refuses to Deny They Sold Hellfire Missile to Cuba (VIDEO)
On Friday, news broke that an American Hellfire missile somehow ended up in Cuba in mid-2014 after it failed to return from a NATO exercise in Europe that year. Unsurprisingly, the island country has refused to give it up, and that fact evidently did not stop the Obama administration from going forward with its push to normalize relations with the country. There have been a | Read More »
Surprise! State Department won’t Meet Clinton Email Goal this Year
The State Department was ordered by the courts to release at least 43,000 of Hillary Clinton’s emails by the end of this year. In a shocking development, it looks like they won’t be meeting that goal. Try to contain your expressions of surprise.

How the State Department Lied To the Press About Syrian Refugees
According to the UN High Commissioner for Refugees, over 62% of all Syrian “refugees” are military age males. This is a problem. Single, military age men are very rarely refugees as defined by US law. They are, however, fertile recruiting ground for terrorists. The Obama administration has sought to downplay this risk by, well, lying. A sample is from BuzzFeed’s Andrew Kaczynski, who has taken | Read More »

Obama Administration Not Prepared to Face Its Own Words
There is very little to disagree with in this New York Post editorial. Associated Press reporter Matt Lee caught deputy State spokesman Mark Toner by surprise at a briefing this week. Lee asked about Saturday’sUS bombing of a hospital in Kunduz, Afghanistan, that left 22 patients and staff dead. The administration has called the attack a tragic mistake. But Lee recalled Israel’s August 2014 shelling | Read More »

Hillary’s fixer in the State Department: Patrick Kennedy
If there is one person to credit for Hillary Clinton dodging the bullet for her malfeasance and misfeasance at State Department it is a guy named Patrick Kennedy who is the Under Secretary for Management. He is a career employee and arguably the most powerful single person in the State Department as he controls basically everything that happens there. I’ve never met the guy, | Read More »
Hillary’s Private E-Mail Server Contains Exactly what we Thought it would
The ongoing scandal involving the contents of Hillary Clinton’s private e-mail server appears to have gotten too big for even our government to ignore.

The Clinton campaign, Democrats across the nation, and her allies in the | Read More »
Classified Information Found On Hillary’s Private Email Account
The New York Times reports that government investigators “discovered classified information” on the private email account that Hillary Clinton used while secretary of state.

The State Department’s In-Kind Contribution to the Clinton Campaign
Yesterday’s revelation that the State Department is processing (read: stonewalling) 50,000 emails from then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton but that none of those emails will be ready for public consumption until sometime in January 2016 is unsurprising.
Those emails cover everything from the Benghazi disaster to numerous foreign policy failures.
The State Department is taking a page directly from the IRS’s playbook.

Pay-to-play at Hillary’s State Department
The more we see of Hillary Clinton’s private emails the more corrupt and inept she is revealed to be. Clinton, is seems, attempted to use US foreign policy as a piggy-bank for her cronies and friends, paralleling the way she and her husband used American foreign policy to enrich themselves. Via The New York Times: While advising Mrs. Clinton on Libya, Mr. Blumenthal, who had | Read More »
