Scandal

Wait, what does that spell?

On Wednesday, during a discussion at the Code Conference, Hillary Clinton, the former presidential candidate, dismissed the investigation of her private email server as being insignificant.

“The use of my email account was turned into, you know, the biggest scandal since Lord knows when,” Clinton said when the topic of “weaponizing” technology came up in the conversation. “And, you know … I’m just using everything that anybody else said about it besides me to basically say this was the biggest nothing-burger ever.”

Clinton continued, “It was a mistake. I’ve said it was a mistake. And obviously, if I could turn the clock back, I wouldn’t have done it in the first place. But the way that it was used was very damaging.”

The executive producer of the conference, Kara Swisher, from Recode, then asked Clinton, “And you didn’t handle it — that’s a mistake on your part, or the way it was used was a mistake on your — because we’re trying to get at what you think you misjudged?”

Clinton replied, reiterating her previous stance that she wasn’t careless and didn’t break any rules.

“Doing something that others had done before was no longer acceptable in the new environment in which we found ourselves,” Clinton explained to Swisher. “And there was no law against it; there was no rule — nothing of that sort. So, I didn’t break any rule. Nobody said, don’t do this — and I was very responsible and not at all careless.”

Later during the discussion, Clinton went on to compare the coverage her email scandal received to the US’ role in the World War 2 and how Pearl Harbor was covered by the media.

“And I think it was interesting — I know you had Dean Baquet here from The New York Times yesterday. And they covered it like it was Pearl Harbor,” Clinton said. “And then, in their endorsement of me, they said, this email thing — it’s like a help desk issue. So, it was always a hard issue to put to bed; but we put it to bed in July. And then, it rose up again.”

Do I smell another settlement?

Fox News Anchor Kelly Wright held press a conference with his lawyer Doug Wigdor to discuss a lawsuit that had been filed by current and former against Fox New network for alleged racial discrimination and harassment.

His lawyer reminded the media of how Mr. Wright’s charges were are not bogus.

“Mr. O’Reilly would not permit Mr. Wright to come on his show to discuss how America could focus on achieving racial reconciliation in the midst of growing racial hostility,” Wigdor said.

“Instead Mr. O’Reilly told Mr. Wright that he should call up Roger Ailes and Bill Shine and offer to sing the national anthem at the Fox News town hall,” he continued. “Rather than viewing Mr. Wright as the two-time Emmy award recipient he is, Mr. O’Reilly saw Mr. Wright as a singing entertainer.”

In the conference, Wright said, “This hurts,” Wight said. “This hurts.”

Wright talked about how the viewers have no insight on to the issues that the many members of the network were facing.

“I am here reluctantly because I prefer sitting behind an anchor desk delivering news,” he said, “to you the viewer, reporting delivering the news to help provide you with information, insight, and some analysis about developments and issues that we face every day in this country and globally.”

He went to express his admiration for the people that the worked with, and of the discontent that he experienced towards the practices of the network.

“I am here reluctantly because I am not against any man or woman at Fox News,” he said. “The truth is I admire, I like, and even love the people who I work with and for. But I don’t like what they do.”

He explained how neither he nor his colleagues are associated with any conspiracies, & that their motive is only to raise a voice against the racial discrimination that takes place at the work place.  He said, “The people that I work with at Fox New …….my colleagues and those you see behind me are hardworking individuals who work tirelessly every day to do their best, give their best and be their best, and I am proud of their accomplishments. Let me make something very plain here. I, and the people you see with me, do not have any incentive from some left-wing conspiratory group or some left-wing financier to try to destroy Fox News.”

“The truth is,” he added, “I believe Fox News will continue to grow and prosper regardless any attempt by anyone to crush it. I believe that Fox will remain strong because there are millions of people who support the company in spirit and in trust.”

“But when that trust is broken with various employees because of racial bias, something has to be done,” Wright concluded. “As I have stated I’m like the men and women of Fox News – that’s why I’m here.”

The scandal over Hillary’s email server is expanding to a private contractor who deleted emails, but did Hillary’s lawyers demand it?

When Hillary decided to use her home server it opened a huge can of worms that is exploding on her campaign right now.

New evidence now points to a private contractor who deleted thousands of emails for the Clinton campaign, but were they pressured by Clinton’s lawyers?

There are serious allegations of obstruction of justice and this timeline might help you understand.

3/2/2015 – The New York Times breaks the story that Hillary Clinton used her own private and unsecure email server when Secretary of State.

3/4/2015 – Congress issued a subpoena and preservation order for all of the email documents and by law Hillary must preserve everything on her server.

3/9/2015 – IT firm that was managing Clinton’s server is told to retain all the emails from Hillary’s server.

3/25/2015 – Clinton’s lawyers and legal team conducts a conference call with the IT firm.

3/31/2015 – Less than a week after the call with the lawyers and three weeks after being told to preserve all the data, the IT firm deletes the Clinton email archive.

They didn’t just delete the archive, they used a sophisticated program that scrubs all evidence and deletes any record permanently.

It is clear that the IT firm listened to Hillary’s team and not the government and they could be in big trouble.

Hillary’s legal team could be in big trouble too if they pressured or paid the IT firm to delete the files.

There is a real case of obstruction of justice here and most likely somebody is going to go down for this crime. There will be a fall guy or gal because we know for sure Hillary will weasel her way out of this like the FBI investigation.

Do you think that Hillary should be charged with obstruction of justice? Let us know in the comments below.

Hillary has lied again and her latest scandal is now in full swing after this scandal started when she blamed Colin Powell for the last scandal. It is all confusing.

Hillary tried to get out of her email issues with the State Department by saying that Colin Powell told her to do it.

Colin admitted at first that he sent a memo describing how using his own AOL email for unclassified items sped up efficiency at the State Department.

A statement that he still stands by, but now he is tired of being blamed for her mistakes and lets us know when he sent the memo to Hillary.

“The truth is, she was using it (home email server) for a year before I sent her a memo telling her what I did. Her people have been trying to pin it on me.”

Powell admits he sent the memo, but it was after a year of her using her own home server.

Clinton also sent and received classified documents through her personal email, and that is something the Colin Powell did not do.

When asked why Hillary would lie about what Colin said and when he said it, he replied, “Why do you think? It doesn’t bother me. But it’s okay; I’m free.”

It might have to do with the presidential election, that’s our guess.

Hillary needs someone to blame when she does interviews for CNN and MSNBC so her followers will have something to believe.

It is obvious that she is lying again. She really has a problem with lying.

If Hillary is willing to lie her way to this point, what makes you think she will stop now?

Scandal

It is without a doubt that this election is one of the most unique and historical elections in our nation’s history, and a new scandal has things making a turn for crazy.

Hillary is moving from one email scandal to another. This time, it was the DNC that was hacked and 20,000 emails released to the public through Wikileaks.

Gucifer 2.0, believed to be a Russian hacker, released stolen emails that outline how the Democratic National Committee conspired to make Hillary the nominee and their plans to end Bernie’s campaign.

Email that suggested they attack Bernie’s religion for a two point boost.

The emails released show a DNC that cheated one of their own candidates in favor for Hillary, but it gets worse.

Debbie Wasserman-Schultz was the head of the DNC but she was forced to resign on Sunday in the backlash of the released emails. She will not be able to attend the convention and is going to have a hard time finding a job, right? Nope!

Just hours after the corrupt and biased head of the DNC resigned, guess who hired her? That’s right, Hillary Clinton.

Hillary took the opportunity to hire Wasserman-Schultz as a top campaign official.

We can’t make this stuff up. If Bernie fans were mad before, they are furious now. Thousands of Bernie fans and Hillary protestors have descended on Philadelphia for the convention and they are already shouting, “Lock her up”.

When Hillary hires a corrupt official the same day they resign, it doesn’t help her in the eyes of America. Ironically a CNN poll was released on the same day that reported only 30% of Americans think that Hillary is “trustworthy”.

The Director of the FBI, Mr. James Comey, called Hillary “extremely careless”, and although no criminal charges where placed on Hillary after the FBI investigation, it is clear she was reckless and put our country in danger.

Bernie Sanders himself wasn’t shocked to hear of the DNC conspiracy to defeat Bernie, but disappointed. Apparently he is still endorsing Hillary.

Bernie’s fans on the other hand are a little more upset. Watch protestors in Philadelphia on Sunday talk about their “feelings” for Hillary.

It is unbelievable that Hillary would hire Debbie Wasserman-Schultz on the day she resigns for leading a corrupt Democratic Party and people are starting to see through lies.

Hillary took a hit in the polls during her FBI email scandal, and now her convention is marred in corruption. If she keeps making decisions like hiring embarrassed and corrupt party leaders then she is just going to hand Donald Trump the presidency. That is unless she cheats.

What do you think of Hillary’s decision to hire Debbie Wasserman-Schultz? Let us know in the comments below.

Roger Ailes is the man that is credited for building Fox News out of nothing and turning it into the most dominate cable news channel. After over two decades of transforming cable news, Roger is out!

That’s right, the Chairman and CEO of Fox News has stepped down and will no longer have any formal involvement in Fox News or it’s sister station, Fox Business.

It took Roger Ailes over 20 years to make it to the top and it took a sexual harassment claim and less than a month to force him to resign.

Rupert Murdoch, owner of 21st Century Fox, the parent company of Fox News, will step in as the Chairman and CEO until they can find someone to fill the giant shoes that Roger is leaving.

Roger’s contract was going to be up in 2018, and it has been reported that his settlement will be a minimum of $40 million.

What does his exit mean? Well, we are not sure yet.

50 anchors said they would leave if Ailes was forced out, but they didn’t say what they would do if Ailes resigned.

This news is fresh and Murdoch was wise to announce it on the same day that the Republican Convention and Donald Trump would dominate the news.

It was lost in the news cycle and for good reason.

Ailes’ departure will cause major ripples through the network and all of cable news.

Keep checking back to see what the fallout is over Ailes’ departure and let us know your thoughts in the comments below

FBI Director James Comey didn’t indict Hillary Clinton, but he confirmed that she is a liar. But is there more? Yes, there is a lot more according to an anonymous FBI source who says Hillary and Bill Clinton are part of the biggest scandal of all time.

It all started on July 2nd when a person claiming to be an FBI agent went on 4chan (an internet chat forum) and started releasing chilling information into the Hillary email case and haunting revelations about the Clinton Foundation.

What is remarkable about this secret “FBI” informant is that after one week of hearing the responses from Lynch, Comey and even Obama about Hillary’s email server, the informant seems to be right on the money.

The knowledge that he shared about Hillary’s emails were made public the following week when Comey made his recommendation to the public on July 5th.

The informant said that Hillary had SAP level programs on her server. It turns out Director Comey admitted the same thing last week.

There seems to be a good amount of credibility from the informant, but he said the email server is not the story. He said they found out about the server while investigating Benghazi, then once on the server, they found out that the Clinton Foundation is beyond criminal to the line of treasonous.

Apparently, the Clinton Foundation is at the center of a buffet of scandals. The informant claims that the Clinton Foundation is involved with the illegal Saudi Arabia donations, the Russian uranium scandal, and more. He says that America faces three choices.

“I will put it to you this way: You have three choices,

A) turn over all of the information to the DOJ, make public a recommendation, the truth comes out, the entire world realizes how much the US is meddling in foreign affairs and we go to war, the civilian population realizes how much foreign money influences our government, and a civil war begins.

B) You cherry-pick the data to implicate the people already in the eye of public opinion, so the chips fall on the heads of a select few and the whole system does not crash.

C) you do nothing and watch the unstable political climate to gauge how you will respond.

I am confident if Trump wins she will be going to jail.”

The last line is very interesting. He says that he heard rumors that Trump will win and that he will pick Chris Christie as his Attorney General and Michael Flynn will be his VP.

The depth of corruption is overwhelming and everyone in the government is involved. Even Trump is said to be involved.

Although the informant said that Trump made donations to the Clinton Foundation in order to get some building permits, but he was clever and won’t be convicted.

He also went on to say that Trump and Russia both have information on Hillary that will help bring her down, and Trump is going to release his information soon. He continued saying that the Russians have hacked Hillary’s server as well and are considering releasing all of the documents to the public.

This treasure trove of information could be coming from some guy in his underwear claiming to be an FBI agent in-between episodes of “24”. Or this guy could be the real deal: frustrated FBI agent who wants to keep his job, but also wants the world to know what is really going on.

Only time will tell if this informant on an Internet chat forum is real, but if Trump or Russia release stolen Hillary documents soon, this guy could be telling the truth.

See the entire discussion here.

Panama Papers

Hillary Clinton has done her best to divert attention of what happened in Benghazi and her email server and continues to lead the Democratic nomination for President, but her Panama connection could make it all crumble.

What are the Panama Papers? Last week, Mossak Fonseca were the victims of a major leak of confidential information that is larger than the Snowden leaks.

Mossak Fonseca is a law firm in Panama that offers “comprehensive legal and trust services” according to their website. A well-known newspaper in Germany got a call from someone with over 11.5 million documents and wanted to hand them over free of charge. The person simply said “I want to make these crimes public”, and they certainly did.

Basically the files contain secrets from some world leaders and people in high political places that have stashed money in “tax havens” around the world to avoid paying taxes in their own country, but that is just scratching there surface. What has happened so far?

Well, the Prime Minister of Iceland quit shortly after the release. David Cameron, the British Prime Minister, was on the list and his approval rating has dropped, and we are just starting to see the fallout in the UK.

People like Vladamir Putin were on the list, and some very interesting facts came out when looking closer to Russia in the Panama Papers and how it all relates to Hillary Clinton.

One of Russia’s biggest banks uses The Podesta Group to lobby for them inside the United States. Tony and John Podesta started the company, and you may remember John from being Bill Clinton’s chief of staff. The Podesta Group offers its clients access to the real Democratic decision makers. They have real access.

The unique access to the power structure of Democrats in Washington is exactly why the Russian bank used the lobbying firm. The people listed to handle the Russian Bank’s lobbying on behalf of The Podesta Group are Tony Podesta, Stephen Rademaker and David Adams.

Stephen and David were former assistant secretaries of state and Tony Podesta has organized a lot of those high dollar donations for Hillary Clinton that Bernie Sanders is always talking about.

Now here is the kicker. John Podesta has unique access to Hillary Clinton. Why? He is her campaign manager. He is the one building the strategy to get her in the White House. The same guy whose brother and company is lobbying for Russia to cut some of the sanctions after the country invaded Ukraine.
This is unparalleled access and it is just the tip of the iceberg. The person who is leading the Democratic nomination for president has her chief of staff also running a company that is working for Russia as a lobbyist.

The whole story is just starting to come out and Hillary’s future may not rest in the FBI with the email scandal, but in a bunch of leaked documents from Panama.

Hillary Clinton thinks the United States should act a little more like the scandal-plagued, economically-collapsing pseudo-democracies of Latin America.

According to Jennifer Epstein, a Bloomberg Politics correspondent embedded with the Hillary Clinton campaign, Hillary made the comment during her speech at the Atlantic Council:

“Probably predictable for me to say this,” she said, “but there’s a lot we can learn from Latin America’s success in electing women presidents.”

While Latin America has elected three female presidents in its history—all of them currently in office—they’re not exactly the shining example Clinton thinks they are. And certainly not the kind of leader a U.S. President—or, really, any world leader—should want to emulate.

In fact, in each case, their administrations have been ravaged by scandal and faced with collapsing economies.

Brazil’s Dilma Rousseff, for instance, is currently sinking underneath a growing corruption scandal—one that has seen 50 politicians from 6 different political parties implicated. For her role in the scandal, and the current state of the country, she’s been threatened with impeachment by high-powered former allies in Brazil’s National Congress—just seven months into her second term.

Worse, the once fast-developing Brazilian economy has skidded into a brutal recession under her leadership, with skyrocketing unemployment and a crumbling currency.

In Argentina, the situation is just as bad: President Cristina Fernandez de Kirchner, who succeeded her late husband as president, has seen her popularity plummet. After creating a mess of socialist regulations that have spooked investors and caused wild inflation in the once-wealthy South American country, Argentina’s economy has sputtered, and the nation has literally gone bankrupt: it defaulted on its debts and has been shut out of international lending markets.

Last month, the term-limited Kirchner’s self-chosen successor lost a once sure-thing election in a conservative upset victory. Argentina’s new incoming president, Mauricio Macri, has vowed to undo just about everything Kirchner created.

The day after he was elected, the Argentine stock exchange shot up more than 40%—largely driven by foreign investors who finally see a reason to invest in Argentina.

Meanwhile, in Chile, President Michele Bachelet has a pathetic 24% approval rating—due in large part to a massive scandal that involved her son and daughter-in-law pocketing a $5 million profit, after receiving a bribe from a major Chilean banker.

Bachelet also had to shuffle her cabinet after growing scandal just 4 months into her first term, and weathered disastrous public relations moves after another, where thousands accused her of exploiting a tragedy.

Hillary Clinton styles herself as a progressive—but if the “progress” she’s hoping for looks anything like the “progress” in South America, the United States could be in for a rough four years.

Harry Reid Retirement Scandal

You’d never know it from the mainstream media puff pieces of Harry Reid’s sudden retirement, but it was a long string of corruption scandals—including a recent one involving his attorney son—that drove the veteran Nevada senator to abruptly leave public office.

For nearly a decade Judicial Watch has investigated and exposed Reid’s involvement in a multitude of transgressions and JW even warned the Senate Ethics Committee, but not surprisingly, no action was ever taken. On multiple occasions the Senate minority leader appeared on JW’s “Ten Most Wanted Corrupt Politicians” list for his role in a number of political scandals that got more serious as his seniority and clout in Congress increased.

As far back as 2006 Reid was in hot water for violating Senate rules by concealing a seven-figure payoff on a suspicious land deal orchestrated by a longtime friend known for political bribery and mob ties. The influential senator secretly collected a $1.1 million profit on land he hadn’t personally owned for years. To hide the deal, Reid transferred ownership, legal liability and tax consequences to a company owned by a former casino lawyer who has been investigated by federal authorities. Months earlier Red got busted for accepting gifts from a state agency trying to influence him. In that scheme the lawmaker quietly took very expensive ringside boxing tickets from the Nevada Athletic Commission while that state agency was trying to influence him on the sport’s federal regulation.

In 2012 Reid made JW’s corrupt politician list because he was embroiled in an influence-peddling scandal involving a Chinese “green energy” client of a Nevada law firm run by his son Rory. The senator was one of the Nevada projects most prominent advocates, helping recruit the company during a 2011 trip to China and applying his political muscle on its behalf, according to a mainstream news report. Reid’s son was an attorney at the prominent Las Vegas firm that represented the Chinese Company, ENN Energy Group, and helped it locate a 9,000-acre desert site for well below its appraised value from Clark County.

In 2013 Reid was again named to JW’s most corrupt politician list for taking more than $130,000 in illegal campaign funds from a shady donor, Harvey Whittemore, who eventually went to jail. Whittemore hired four of the senator’s sons at a law firm in which he served as senior partner and worked with Reid on huge land deals that required federal legislation. Additionally, Reid sponsored at least $47 million in earmarks that directly benefitted organizations with close ties to one of his sons, Key Reid. The legislator also colluded with President Obama to nix a proposed nuclear waste dump in Yucca Mountain Nevada after U.S. taxpayers spent $15 billion on the project.

More recently Reid abused his authority to pressure the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) to expedite a $115 million foreign investor visa deal critical to his son’s casino client. Reid got the DHS to override agency procedures to rush through hundreds of visa applications from foreign nationals who helped fund a Las Vegas hotel and casino that hired Rory Reid to provide legal representation for the project, according to a recent news report. The article goes into tremendous detail about the illicit scheme that evidently served as the straw that broke the camel’s back. A few days later Reid said he wouldn’t run for a sixth term in the Senate. His hometown newspaper called it a “surprise announcement.” On his government website, Reid posted a goodbye video saying he did his best though hasn’t been perfect.
