    DC Whispers ^ | October 18, 2017
    An internal audit commissioned by the Clinton Foundation in 2011 revealed that the Clinton's family charity may have misled the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) when it claimed, under penalty of perjury, that it was enforcing a policy against conflicts of interest. [Snip] In short, auditors warned the Clinton Foundation it was likely involved in multiple conflicts of interest violations. That warning was ignored for the entire time Hillary Clinton was Secretary of State as tens of millions of dollars continued to pour into the foundation's coffers. The Clintons knew. The Obama White House knew. Top-ranking members of Congress knew as...

    Eric Holder defended former FBI Director James Comey's draft exoneration letter for Hillary Clinton in an interview with CNN's Jake Tapper on Wednesday. Holder commented, "you can make determinations about where an investigation is likely to go before you actually speak to the subject of that investigation." (emphasis mine) JAKE TAPPER, CNN: You worked with James Comey when he was the FBI Director and you were the Attorney General. There is a newly released document suggesting he had been working on his statement in May of 2016 before he ultimately cleared Hillary Clinton of any criminal wrongdoing later that summer....

    WILMINGTON, Del. (AP) — A sweeping multistate manhunt that kept the Mid-Atlantic region on high alert for more than 10 hours ended when law enforcement officers on foot chased down a man they say shot six people, killing three, in two separate shootings. Radee Prince, 37, of Elkton, Maryland, shot five co-workers early Wednesday at a granite company in Maryland, then drove to Wilmington, Delaware, and shot an acquaintance in the head at a used car lot, police in Maryland and Delaware said. Wilmington Police Chief Robert Tracy said at a news conference Wednesday night that police and federal agents...

    Judge Andrew Napolitano, Fox News senior judicial analyst, weighed in on the report, telling FOX Business’ Stuart Varney on “Varney & Co.,” “The significance is an FBI acknowledgement that Huma Abedin, Mrs. Anthony Weiner, when she had a top security clearance as the number two assistant to Hillary Clinton when Hillary was Secretary of State, regularly sent copies of sensitive material to her own laptop so she could look at it at night, either knowing or forgetting that her husband had access to it as well.” Napolitano said this gives insight into the State Department’s casual approach to top secret...

    A Massachusetts man has been convicted of conspiring to support the Islamic State group with a plot to behead conservative blogger Pamela Geller. Jurors on Wednesday found David Wright guilty of all charges, including conspiracy to commit acts of terrorism transcending national boundaries. The 28-year-old faces up to life in prison. Prosecutors say Wright plotted with his uncle and a Rhode Island man to kill Geller on behalf of the terror group after she organized a Prophet Muhammad cartoon contest in Texas. The plot was never carried out.

    The Florida Democrat who criticized President Donald Trump this week for being "insensitive" toward the widow of a U.S. soldier slain in Africa might be facing similar criticism herself. It turns out that U.S. Rep. Frederica Wilson has frequently voted against measures intended to help veterans and their families, according to an (online vote tracker.) The measures that Wilson opposed included a bill that could have ensured that families of four soldiers slain in Afghanistan in 2013 received death and burial benefits.

    Florida police arrested 277 people -- including doctors, cops and pharmacists -- during a weeklong undercover sex sting operation. During the operation, undercover detectives and investigators from several law enforcement agencies posted false advertisements on websites, social media sites and phone apps posing as “prostitutes or to solicit sex workers." One of the men arrested, Judd said, was a sergeant at his office. Sgt. Luis Diaz, who had been on the force for 17 years, resigned after the sting, FOX13 reported.

    Mixed Times ^ | October 14, 2017
    Figures obtained by The Times through the Freedom of Information Act reveal that 3,395 people across 29 forces were arrested last under section 127 of the Communications Act 2003, which makes it illegal to intentionally “cause annoyance, inconvenience or needless anxiety to another”, in 2016. The true figure is likely to be significantly higher, as thirteen police forces refused to provide the requested information and two did not provide usable data. Around half of the investigations were abandoned before being brought to prosecution, which critics say is an indication that the authorities are being excessively strict in their interpretation of...

    Emma Stone, Melissa McCarthy, and Sheryl Crow are among a number of celebrities urging Americans to “reject the NRA” and concealed carry of firearms in the wake of the shooting at a Las Vegas country music concert this month. Laura Dern, Bill Hader, and Adam Scott are also taking part in the anti-gun campaign, as is noted gun control advocate Julianne Moore. The celebrities are part of the Michael Bloomberg-funded Everytown for Gun Safety PSA against the NRA specifically, and against gun rights generally. In typical Everytown fashion, the PSA does not present real solutions to the attack in Vegas–after...

    The New York Times ^ | APRIL 23, 2015 | JO BECKER and MIKE McINTIRE
    The headline on the website Pravda trumpeted President Vladimir V. Putin’s latest coup, its nationalistic fervor recalling an era when its precursor served as the official mouthpiece of the Kremlin: “Russian Nuclear Energy Conquers the World.” The article, in January 2013, detailed how the Russian atomic energy agency, Rosatom, had taken over a Canadian company with uranium-mining stakes stretching from Central Asia to the American West. The deal made Rosatom one of the world’s largest uranium producers and brought Mr. Putin closer to his goal of controlling much of the global uranium supply chain. But the untold story behind that...

    Linda Bloodworth-Thomason, the creator of the iconic 90s sitcom Designing Women and a close friend for decades of Bill and Hillary Clinton, admits that she not only knew of producer Harvey Weinstein’s predations, but that she warned “top-level” Democrats about him. Buried deep within a Hollywood Reporter guest column, Bloodworth-Thomason drops this bombshell (with a deflecting shot at Fox News): “I confess to having had no problem warning at least three top-level Democratic operatives against allowing Harvey Weinstein to host political fundraisers. A warning that evidently (and to the glee of Fox News) fell on deaf ears.” She also says...

    The removal and demotion of a handful of veteran operatives stood out, as did what critics charge is the over-representation of Clinton-backed members on the Rules and Bylaws Committee, which helps set the terms for the party's presidential primary, though other Sanders and Ellison backers remain represented. Those who have been pushed out include: Ray Buckley, the New Hampshire Democratic chairman and longtime DNC official who ran against Perez for chair before backing Rep. Keith Ellison, D-Minn., lost his spots on the Executive Committee and DNC Rules Committee; James Zogby, the president of the Arab American Institute and prominent Sanders...

    The Heritage Foundation added another round of cases this week to its ever-growing Voter Fraud Database.Accounting for these new additions, the database now documents 1,088 proven instances of election fraud, including 949 cases that have resulted in criminal convictions, 48 that have ended in civil penalties, and 75 that have seen defendants enter diversion programs.Americans should be alarmed, not only because Heritage has compiled so many examples of fraud—impacting nearly every state and elections for all levels of government—but because this figure is likely just the tip of the iceberg.The Heritage database is not a comprehensive tally of election fraud....
