Clinton Foundation's Most Questionable Foreign Donations

Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton vigorously defended the Clinton Foundation’s work at Wednesday night’s final presidential debate.

“I’m thrilled to talk about the Clinton Foundation, because it is a world-renowned charity and I am so proud of the work that it does,” Clinton said in a response to a question from moderator Chris Wallace about possible conflicts of interest and impropriety.

Wallace’s question came after numerous allegations from Republican nominee Donald Trump that the Clinton Foundation took donations from foreign governments, which influenced Clinton’s decision making while serving as secretary of state.

These countries include states accused of human rights violations, economic interests in decisions by Clinton’s Department of State, and countries Clinton has pledged to confront if elected president.

Hillary Clinton, the hypocrite

She touts a code of conduct that she and her operatives routinely violate

In the modern history of American politics has there ever been a bigger hypocrite than Hillary Clinton? Her 30 years in politics has taught us clearly that Hillary lives by one set of rules and wants to impose different rules for everyone else. She constantly accuses Donald Trump of transgressions that she has been caught red-handed of herself. She sermonizes about a code of conduct that she and her husband and her operatives routinely violate. We have learned from her emails that she has two personas: she tells voters one thing and her donors the opposite.

After the last presidential debate, I started to jot down her double standards and the list went on and on. This column can’t possibly do justice to all her double dealings (and I welcome readers to add to the list). Here are some of the biggest whoppers and I paraphrase Hillary here:

• I stand with working-class Americans unless they are coal miners who I want to throw out of work and put in unemployment lines.

• I have devoted my whole life to helping children. Except that I’m for the infanticide of partial birth abortion.

• It is reprehensible that a major presidential candidate would ever question the validity of the election results … unless that candidates name is Al Gore or John Kerry.

Trump accuses Dems of manufacturing 'phony polls'

Donald Trump is blaming his slump in national and state-level polls on Democratic pollsters who he accused on Monday of spreading "phony polls" aimed at suppressing Republican voter turnout.

"Major story that the Dems are making up phony polls in order to suppress the the [sic] Trump," tweeted the Republican presidential nominee. "We are going to WIN!"

Trump trails Hillary Clinton by 6.1 percentage points in the latestRealClearPolitics national average and is behind the Democratic presidential hopeful in every battleground state except Iowa and Ohio, where he carries slim leads.

Trustbusting: Trump Vows to 'Break Up The New Media Conglomerate Oligopolies'

Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump promises he’d break up the few corporations that dominate important industries and are working overtime to influence the vote.

“Over a hundred years ago, a pro-business Teddy Roosevelt busted up more than 40 oil, railroad, steel and other ‘trusts’ that were wielding their rapacious monopoly power to gouge consumers and interfere with the efficient functioning of the American economy,” senior economic adviser Peter Navarro said in a statement. “Donald Trump will break up the new media conglomerate oligopolies that have gained enormous control over our information, intrude into our personal lives, and in this election, are attempting to unduly influence America’s political process.”

Navarro also blasted the large corporations who shut down U.S. manufacturing bases, ship their jobs overseas, and funnel money to candidates who keep the arrangement in place:

The very corporations that have gained from shipping America’s factories and jobs offshore are the very same media conglomerates now pushing Hillary Clinton’s agenda. She is the official candidate of the multinational ruling elite.


Gun-Related Arrests In Baltimore Often Lead Nowhere

The rate of fatal shootings in Baltimore has reportedly spiked in the past year. Several prosecutors and police officers believe that illegal-gun offenders are facing reduced consequences, a new trend in the city's courts.

Between November 2015 and March 2016, one-quarter of illegal-gun cases in Baltimore were dropped before reaching trial. While the average sentence for offenders was 16 months in January 2015, that number has been reduced to an average of six months, The Baltimore Sun reports.

Baltimore prosecutors estimate that people who are convicted of carrying an illegal firearm currently only face 15 percent of their potential sentences, while felons convicted of possession a gun receive only 25 percent of their potential sentences.

In 2016, only 34 percent of defendants charged with carrying an illegal firearm were held without bail while roughly 20 percent were held at bail below $100,000.


Video: Hillary Clinton Approved Robert Creamer Plan Directly

James O’Keefe’s Project Veritas has released video evidence that left-wing organizer and high-level Democratic Party operative Robert Creamer is, in fact, linked directly to Hillary Clinton, who personally approved at least one of his disruptive tactics.

Last week, O’Keefe produced video showing Creamer, the co-founder of the Democracy Partners consulting group, and his colleague, Scott Foval, discussing their past and present efforts to incite violence at Donald Trump rallies and other events.

The stated goal was to create “anarchy” around Trump, presumably to make him less appealing to American voters. Foval described Democracy Partners as a contractor for the Hillary Clinton campaign and the Democratic National Committee.

Clinton campaign manager Robby Mook tried to evade the controversy by denying a direct link between Creamer and the campaign.

When Breitbart News’ Washington political editor, Matthew Boyle, confronted Mook about Creamer and his firm in the spin room after the third presidential debate, Mook claimed: “They’ve never worked for our campaign.” When asked if Clinton had ever discussed the controversial political operations with Creamer directly, Mook replied: “I don’t think so.”


Inside George W. and Laura Bush’s 70th Birthday Bash

Former President George W. Bush and his wife, Laura, gathered their closest friends under a starlit Texas sky and officially two-stepped into the seven-decade club over the weekend.

While he turned 70 back in July and she doesn’t hit that milestone until Nov. 4, the Bushes threw a joint birthday party on Saturday at their beloved Prairie Chapel ranch in Crawford, Texas.

Their birthday photo album, shared exclusively with PEOPLE, shows the couple positively basking in the good life far, far away from this election season.


New overtime rules: 1 good outcome and 7 bad ones

Do you have employees who are on salary? Do those employees ever work more than 40 hours in a week, for whatever reason? If the answer is yes to these questions, your world is about to get more complicated and probably more expensive.

Please stay with me. I need to get into the weeds, but just for a minute.

The current Department of Labor (DOL) overtime exemption threshold for “white-collar” employees is anyone with a salary of at least $23,666 annually, or $455 per week. Exempt means the employer is not required to pay overtime if and when this class of employee works over 40 hours per week. This threshold applies to all businesses, regardless of size or number of employees.

Here’s the news: The DOL has announced that as of Dec. 1 that overtime exemption threshold will essentially double, to $47,476 annually, or $913 per week.

So anyone currently receiving a salary of less than this new amount will soon convert to non-exempt status and must be paid overtime when they work more than 40 hours a week.

The reason I’m concerned about this change is because of the size of the increase.

I fear this new threshold is going to catch and hurt a lot of unaware small businesses in its net. So I took this concern to my small business audience in our online poll recently and asked if they knew about the new overtime exemption changes.

Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health study says guns on college campus is a bad idea

BALTIMORE, Md. - A new study released by Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health states the risks outweigh the benefits when it comes to students and others carrying guns on campus.

"There's really no reliable evidence that bringing guns onto campus would make the campus safer and there's a lot of good reasons bringing guns into a college environment that could actually make that college less safe," Johns Hopkins professor Jon Vernick said.

Vernick specializes in gun violence research and helped prepare the publication. While he believes students are at a higher risk to hurt themselves and others during college, students themselves say guns can protect them and others.

"The only guns that are going to be able to stop that criminal from behaving illegally are guns that are going to be obtained legally," Johns Hopkins graduate student Thomas Pangia said.


LEAKED: Obama Team Kept List of Muslims For Top Jobs, Excluded Non-Muslims

This follows a pattern of the Obama Administration using race and religion to determine hiring

The newest batch of John Podesta’s hacked emails released by Wikileaks shows Obama’s transition team kept lists of Muslim and Asian candidates for jobs in the administration.

According to an email chain from 2008, John Podesta received lists of exclusively Muslims and Asians to be considered for jobs in the Obama administration. The email chain revealed that in this process, Middle Eastern Christians were purposefully excluded, or set aside in a separate list, with an aide writing,

In the candidates for top jobs, I excluded those with some Arab American background but who are not Muslim (e.g., George Mitchell). Many Lebanese Americans, for example, are Christian. In the last list (of outside boards/commissions), most who are listed appear to be Muslim American, except that a handful (where noted) may be Arab American but of uncertain religion (esp. Christian).

"Don’t Repeat That To Anybody" - Hillary Clinton And Donna Brazile Implicated In Latest Project Veritas Video

Last week, Jame O'keefe and Project Veritas Action potentially altered the course of the U.S. election, or at a minimum raised serious doubts about the practices of the Clinton campaign and the DNC, after releasing two undercover videos that revealed efforts of democrat operatives to incite violence at republican rallies and commit "mass voter fraud." While democrats have vehemently denied the authenticity of the videos, two democratic operatives, Robert Creamer and Scott Foval, have both been forced to resign over the allegations.

Many democrats made the rounds on various mainstream media outlets over the weekend in an attempt to debunk the Project Veritas videos. Unfortunately for them, O'Keefe fired back with warnings that part 3 of his multi-part series was forthcoming and would implicate Hillary Clinton directly.
Anything happens to me, there's a deadman's switch on Part III, which will be released Monday. @HillaryClinton and@donnabrazile implicated.

Now, we have the 3rd installment of O'Keefe's videos which does seemingly reveal direct coordination between Hillary Clinton, Donna Brazile, Robert Creamer and Scott Foval to organize a smear campaign over Trump's failure to release his tax returns. Per Project Veritas:


Horror as Violent Teen Flash Mobs Randomly Assault Students in Philly

Temple University in Philadelphia is on edge after seething “flash mobs” of violent teens roved the campus Friday night, terrorizing and randomly assaulting students. Four teenagers ages 14-17 have since been arrested and police presence reinforced around the rattled campus.

According to a statement from Temple security, hundreds of juveniles gathered along Broad Street around 8.30pm on Friday and roved the campus for nearly two hours, in what quickly devolved into an uncontrollable night of horrifying violence. Over the course of the evening two police officers were assaulted , six students injured, and one robbed. A police horse was also punched in the face.

The group of roughly 150 students reportedly organized the “flash mobs” on the picture sharing platform Instagram. They had planned to meet at 8pm.


State Department aide pleads the Fifth more than 90 times

A former State Department IT aide invoked his Fifth Amendment rights and refused to answer more than 90 questions Monday during the final deposition in a lawsuit over Hillary Clinton's private emails.

John Bentel, former Director of Information Resource Management of the executive secretariat, would not answer questions about whether the Clintons had paid his legal fees or offered him financial incentives, according to Judicial Watch, the conservative-leaning group that brought the suit.

A federal judge in August ordered Bentel to testify under oath because "the record in this case appears to contradict his sworn testimony before the Benghazi Committee."

Bentel told the House Select Committee on Benghazi in June 2015 that he had no knowledge of Clinton's private email server.


Annual Veterans Day Ceremony To Feature World War II Vet

OCEAN PINES – Officials with the Worcester County Veterans Memorial at Ocean Pines Foundation will hold their annual Veterans Day ceremony Nov. 11 at 11 a.m.

Among the guests will be keynote speaker Nathan Pearson, World War II veteran and past chaplain and commander of American Legion Post 166 in Ocean City.

Pearson has had close connections with the memorial since the beginning, he said, and was an original designer for the Patriots Pathway that goes through the memorial’s garden.

The speaker has served on numerous Ocean Pines committees in recent years, including the Ocean Pines Board of Directors and the 20th Anniversary committee where he acted as chairman.


Investigation Into Cecil Co. Police Involved Shooting Continues

October 26, 2016

(ELKTON, MD) – As part of the continuing investigation, Maryland State Police investigators have determined a state trooper, sheriff’s deputies and municipal police officers fired yesterday during the police involved shooting in Cecil County that fatally wounded two fugitives from Delaware.

Brandon Jones, 25, and Chelsea Porter, 25, both of Dover Delaware, were fatally wounded by police just before 10:00 a.m. yesterday when they refused directions to surrender and both pointed guns at fugitive task force officers attempting to arrest them at their Cecil County motel room. Both were wanted by Delaware State Police on warrants charging them with multiple felony gun and drug offenses.

The Maryland State Police trooper who fired is identified as Sergeant Michael Bonczewski, assigned to the Criminal Enforcement Division. He is a 10-year veteran of the Maryland State Police and works on the Maryland State Apprehension Team, which tracks and arrests criminal fugitives throughout the state. He has been placed on routine administrative leave, which is procedure in police involved shootings.

Maryland State Police Homicide Unit investigators have determined three deputies from the Cecil County Sheriff’s Office and six officers from the Elkton Police Department also fired their weapons. Questions regarding the identity of those officers and deputies should be directed to their respective departments.

Investigators have learned that when members of the MSAT team knocked and announced their presence at the hotel room yesterday, Brandon Jones pulled back the curtain, pointed a gun at them and said he had a gun. The police officers retreated from the door and continued to order the suspects to surrender, until they came out and pointed the guns at police.

The investigation is continuing.

Never said better

This one is scary but so true.

Time is like a river. You cannot touch the water twice, because the flow that has passed will never pass again. Franklin Graham was speaking at the First Baptist Church in Jacksonville , Florida , when he said America will not come back. He wrote:

The American dream ended on November 6th, 2012 in Ohio . The second term of Barack Obama has been the final nail in the coffin for the legacy of the white Judeo-Christian males who discovered, explored, pioneered, settled and developed the greatest republic in the history of mankind.

A coalition of blacks, Latinos, feminists, gays, government workers, union members, environmental extremists, the media, Hollywood, uninformed young people, the "forever needy," the chronically unemployed, illegal aliens and other "fellow travelers" have ended Norman Rockwell's America.

You will never again out-vote these people. It will take individual acts of defiance and massive displays of civil disobedience to get back the rights we have allowed them to take away. It will take zealots, not moderates and shy, not reach-across-the-aisle RINOs to right this ship and restore our beloved country to its former status.

People like me are completely politically irrelevant, and I will probably never again be able to legally comment on or concern myself with the aforementioned coalition which has surrendered our culture, our heritage and our traditions without a shot being fired.

The Cocker spaniel is off the front porch, the pit bull is in the back yard. The American Constitution has been replaced with Saul Alinsky's "Rules for Radicals" and the likes of Chicago shyster David Axelrod along with international socialist George Soros have been pulling the strings on their beige puppet have brought us Act 2 of the New World Order.

The curtain will come down but the damage has been done, the story has been told.

Those who come after us will once again have to risk their lives, their fortunes and their sacred honor to bring back the Republic that this generation has timidly frittered away due to white guilt and political correctness... Sadly so.

Hillary's Howard Dean Moment: 'Love Trumps... byah!!'

Clinton clip goes viral following vocal Trump attack

Hillary Clinton’s voice cracked as she attempted to lead a New Hampshire crowd in a vocal attack against Republican presidential contender Donald Trump Monday.

Her latest gaffe is reminiscent of the infamous scream credited for ruining politician Howard Dean’s White House hopes in 2004.

Articles: Hillary Clinton and the Chain of Command at Waco

Many politicians have a skeleton in their closet. Hillary Clinton has a cemetery, with a sign reading “Waco.”

The 1993 Waco showdown began when federal authorities rushed the communal home of a religious group, killing six of them, and losing four agents in return. The FBI then besieged the place with tanks and other armored vehicles, and ended up with the armored vehicles punching holes in the building, and injecting massive quantities of CS “tear gas.” When that didn’t work, the tanks began to demolish the building, eventually smashing about a quarter of it and damaging the remainder. A fire broke out and 74 people died in the flames, including twenty-one children. It was the deadliest law enforcement operation in American history.

After the tragic debacle, the Clinton administration claimed that Attorney General Janet Reno had been solely responsible for the final assault. There had been no White House input during the siege, and at the end, President Clinton only acquiesced in a decision Reno had made.

Twenty-three years later, there are substantial reasons to doubt the truth of these claims. The evidence is strong that the Clinton White House was calling the shots, and that Hillary played a prominent role.


Pat Caddell: Media Executing 'Coup d'État Against the People' to Elect Hillary

In addressing media bias through selective coverage and media polling in the 2016 presidential election, pollster and analyst Pat Caddell told Breitbart News Daily SiriusXM host Alex Marlow on Monday, “If they do this, they will have ratified their right to control American politics and their right to decide what the American people have a right to know and what they don’t.”

“They will have executed,” Caddell continued, “on behalf of the political establishment … basically a coup d’état, as somebody else has used that term, against the people, against the country. Democracy is supposed to belong to the people.”

He went on to state that “the media’s job is to inform of everything, just like I mentioned this FBI story this morning. There’s almost no coverage anymore of Clinton, or the emails, or whatever. All of that under whatever excuses they use, it is all to the purpose of helping to support her candidacy and in their belief that they have to stop Donald Trump.”


Fishing Industry Voices Concern With Possible Offshore Sanctuary Idea; Official Provisions Sought Before Designation Considered

OCEAN CITY — On the same day the National Aquarium announced it was seeking an Urban National Marine Sanctuary designation for the Baltimore Canyon off the coast of Ocean City, aquarium officials attempted to reassure the sportfishing community a successful designation would not impact the fertile fishing grounds.

When the National Aquarium announced on Monday it was seeking the nation’s first Urban National Marine Sanctuary designation for the Baltimore Canyon off the coast of Ocean City, the knee-jerk reaction from the resort’s sportfishing community was fear of gradually losing more and more of the heart of the multi-million fishing industry. The overriding fear, and there is precedent for it, is that once the federal government gets its foot in the door, more and more regulations would be forthcoming and access to the canyon for recreational and commercial fisherman would be gradually chipped away.

However, National Aquarium officials later on Monday attempted to allay those fears. According to spokesperson Corrine Weaver, the National Aquarium is keenly aware of the importance of the recreational and commercial fisheries in the Baltimore Canyon and seeking an Urban National Marine Sanctuary designation would not impact those industries.


Top University Stole Millions From Taxpayers By Faking Global Warming Research

A global warming research center at the London School of Economics got millions of dollars from UK taxpayers by taking credit for research it didn’t perform, an investigation by The Daily Mail revealed.

The UK government gave $11 million dollars to the Centre for Climate Change Economics and Policy (CCCEP) in exchange for research that the organization reportedly never actually did.

Many papers CCCEP claimed to have published to get government money weren’t about global warming, were written before the organization was even founded, or were written by researchers unaffiliated with CCCEP. The government never checked CCCEP’s supposed publication lists, saying they were “taken on trust,” according to the report.

“It is serious misconduct to claim credit for a paper you haven’t supported, and it’s fraud to use that in a bid to renew a grant,” Professor Richard Tol, a climate economics expert from Sussex University whose research was reportedly stolen by CCCEP, told The Daily Mail. “I’ve never come across anything like it before. It stinks.”


Did WikiLeaks Just Uncover The Democratic Playbook On How To ‘Rig’ Polls?

Many conservatives have questioned the sincerity of mainstream polling data, pointing to over-sampling of Democrats, or more ambiguously, ties to Democratic donor George Soros, as a way to skew national polls in favor of Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton in hopes to suppress voter turnout for Republican nominee Donald Trump.

While there may be evidence of over-sampling and genuine concerns over "opinion polling," the latest suggestion that WikiLeaks has uncovered the Democratic "playbook" to "rigging" national polling seems to be more complicated at second glance.

In an email dated January 10, 2008, Democratic officials speak of “oversampling” as a way to “maximize” the media for their candidate at hand, Hillary Clinton. The attachment to the email is seemingly even more damning, explaining step-by-step how to over-sample certain demographics in different areas to “rig” the poll into some sort of victory.

"Hey, when can we meet? I also want to get your Atlas folks to recommend oversamples for our polling before we start in February. By market, regions, etc. I want to get this all compiled into one set of recommendations so we can maximize what we get out of our media polling," wrote Tom Mattzie, in the leaked email.

While that might sound rather insidious, the polling being discussed here is reportedly polling data used by campaigns internally, directing them on how to target certain voters. The data is being specifically obtained via The Atlas Project, an online, openly progressive data company which "combines the institutional memory of the progressive movement with current expert analysis and cutting-edge data visualization to ensure efficient, effective decisions that result in progressive victories." This polling is seemingly separate from any national mainstream media polling.

The Washington Post explains further:


14% Of Polled Wells Fargo Customers Have Decided To Leave The Bank

Wells Fargo's illegal cross-selling and fraudulent account creation practices appear to have caught up with the bank, just days after CEO John Stumpf announced his surprise resignation. As Bloomberg reports, management consultancy cg42 released a poll showing 14% of Wells Fargo customers have decided to leave the bank, "potentially withdrawing billions of dollars and crimping revenue."

The data confirms what a separate poll by SurveyMonkey Intelligence released last week revealed. According to the survey, since the scandal broke, Wells Fargo has been losing asmuch as 140,000 of its mobile customers every week. The report finds that while the bank reported a downturn in new customer applications and accounts opened since the scandal broke, Wells Fargo curiously hasn’t reported on its customer churn rates. That is, the rate at which Wells Fargo is losing customers as they close their accounts after the scandal. (Conversely, customer retention rates would reveal the rate of customers keeping their accounts. Either metric works.)


DOJ Warns Efforts to Stop 2016 Voter Fraud Could 'Violate' Federal Law

A U.S. Department of Justice press release warns individuals who may serve as poll watchers hoping to prevent voter fraud could violate voter intimidation laws.

Upon first blush, what may appear to be a middling warning that voter fraud and abuse will not be tolerated by federal law enforcement also casts a shadow over various lawful election activities with broad language apparently intended to caution individuals from performing their duties.

A statement initially circulated by various U.S. Attorney’s offices outline several forms of election crimes to include “buying and selling votes, impersonating voters,” and others, yet offers a blanket warning to individuals that may hope to disrupt and document similar plots that those actions may, too, “violate federal voting rights law.” The DOJ comment specifically counsels against communicating with voters and “challenging them”, plus the capture of still and video images is also mentioned. The statement does not grant the varying distinctions in which states may allow communication between voters and poll watchers, nor does the DOJ note that some observers in specific states do indeed have the power to challenge would-be voters based on documented ineligibility. As a point of fact, some states—Missouri as an example—specifically call election observers “challengers”, according to local statutes.


Kremlin In Turmoil After Clinton Foundation CEO Requests “Urgent And Immediate” Asylum

An extraordinary Security Council (SC) report circulating in the Kremlin today says this morning President Putin was “officially presented” with a Main Directorate for Migration Affairs (GUVM) of the Ministry of Internal Affairs (MVD) “file for review” relating to a request for “urgent and immediate” political asylum requested by an American citizen namedEric Braverman—who was the former CEO of the Clinton Foundation, and is known as the man who can expose “The Real Hillary Clinton Scandal”. [Note: Some words and/or phrases appearing in quotes in this report are English language approximations of Russian words/phrases having no exact counterpart.

An extraordinary Security Council (SC) report circulating in the Kremlin today says this morning President Putin was “officially presented” with a Main Directorate for Migration Affairs (GUVM) of the Ministry of Internal Affairs (MVD) “file for review” relating to a request for “urgent and immediate” political asylum requested by an American citizen namedEric Braverman—who was the former CEO of the Clinton Foundation, and is known as the man who can expose “The Real Hillary Clinton Scandal”. [Note: Some words and/or phrases appearing in quotes in this report are English language approximations of Russian words/phrases having no exact counterpart.]

Requests for the granting of political asylum in the Federation, this report explains, is regulated by a separate government resolution rather than the Law on Refugees and is issued to those seeking “asylum or protection from persecution or a real threat of becoming a victim of persecution” in their home country for “social-political activities or convictions that do not contradict the democratic principles recognized by the international community and norms of international law”—and though Russia has the world’s highest number of asylum applications, political asylum requests are very rarely granted.

In his apparent knowing of these facts, however, this report continues, Eric Braverman, yesterday (23 October), arrived at the Consulate of Russia in New York City and presented his “urgent and immediate” request for asylum on a visa application—as is “protocol/custom” because the Federation does not accept mail or electronic visa applications from residents of the continental United States.

BREAKING: Secretary of Defense Ash Carter Suspends the Collection Of Reimbursement Bonuses

Statement from Secretary of Defense Ash Carter on California National Guard Bonus Payments

There is no more important responsibility for the Department of Defense than keeping faith with our people. That means treating them fairly and equitably, honoring their service and sacrifice, and keeping our word. Today, in keeping with that obligation, I am ordering a series of steps to ensure fair treatment for thousands of California National Guard soldiers who may have received incentive bonuses and tuition assistance improperly as a result of errors and in some cases criminal behavior by members of the California National Guard.

While some soldiers knew or should have known they were ineligible for benefits they were claiming, many others did not. About 2,000 have been asked, in keeping with the law, to repay erroneous payments. There is an established process in place by which service members can seek relief from such obligations. Hundreds of affected guard members in California have sought and been granted relief. But that process has simply moved too slowly and in some cases imposed unreasonable burdens on service members. That is unacceptable. So today, on the recommendation of Deputy Secretary Work, I am ordering measures to make sure we provide affected service members the support they need and deserve.

First, I have ordered the Defense Finance and Accounting Service to suspend all efforts to collect reimbursement from affected California National Guard members, effective as soon as is practical. This suspension will continue until I am satisfied that our process is working effectively. Second, I have ordered a team of senior department officials, led by the senior personnel official in the Office of the Secretary of Defense, Peter Levine, to assess the situation and establish no later than Jan. 1, 2017 a streamlined, centralized process that ensures the fair and equitable treatment of our service members and the rapid resolution of these cases. The objective will be to complete the decision-making process on all cases as soon as possible - and no later than July 1, 2017.

Ultimately, we will provide for a process that puts as little burden as possible on any soldier who received an improper payment through no fault of his or her own. At the same time, it will respect our important obligation to the taxpayer.

I want to be clear: this process has dragged on too long, for too many service members. Too many cases have languished without action. That's unfair to service members and to taxpayers. The steps I've outlined are designed to meet our obligations to both, and to do so quickly.


A reality people want to avoid about this election. This is truly an election unlike one we've ever seen in our lifetimes. It is what it is.

Dare to inform yourself! Dare to watch this whole video in it's total and ask yourself, is he lying or does this 'feel' true in your gut?

Democrats caught stuffing ballot with campaign materials

'It was just biased. It was 1 side'

When Jena Jones opened up her absentee ballot last week, there was a lot more in the envelope than she expected. In addition to actual ballot, she and her husband, David, noticed multiple pieces of advocacy from Democrats.

Jones, who resides in Fairfax County, will be out of town on Election Day and requested an absentee ballot from the Virginia Department of Elections. She was surprised to what else came with her ballot.

“I found a letter from the governor of Virginia asking me to please vote Democrat and ‘help keep Virginia blue’ this year. Then I got a letter from the Fairfax County Democratic Committee, giving me a step-by-step, yes-and-no what I should vote for as far as the meal tax and all those other things on the ballot,” Jena explained to WND and Radio America.

The latter document is known as a sample ballot and is often handed out on the sidewalks outside of polling places on Election Day. But there are strict rules that forbid those sample ballots from being handed out in the polling stations. (See images of some of the materials below this story.)

Day 19: And the Wall Comes Crumbling Down...

Day 19 on WikiLeaks is up as usual. This gives the 12 Days of Christmas a whole new meaning.

Also see bottom, posting email found yesterday about Clinton's issues regarding the email server where she flamed 33K emails (about to be revealed in just a mere week's time.)

Apparently the Clinton camp was colluding with the State Department about how to "handle" her situation. Here's a novel idea: Don't run for president! If Clinton really wanted to be president, why didn't she keep her nose clean? Think about it.

Oh well, just another day in the big RIG. We'll see how this all shakes out, sooner than later.

Doubts about the Clinton Foundation by Robby Mook (And you say WikiLeaks isn't revealing anything -- obviously you're not paying attention!):

Note to Readers: Taking Money from Foreign Governments for Our Election is a CRIME! Also, when Clinton started her campaign, she borrowed Jeff Epstein, famed convicted pedophile's Lolita Express Jet for her mode of transportation... Oops! Just saying...

K. J. Gillenwater was the primary researcher behind this story.

Settlement in case involving breakfast pastry chewed into shape of gun

WASHINGTON — The Maryland court case involving a second-grader accused of chewing a breakfast pastry into the shape of a gun has finally been settled.

The 7-year-old, who was also accused of pointing the pastry-gun at his classmates in Anne Arundel County, served a two-day suspension, but his family wanted the suspension removed from his school records.

The 2013 incident drew national attention.


From porkies to whoppers: over time lies may desensitise brain to dishonesty

Study suggests that telling small lies makes changes to the brain’s response to lying, rather than being a case of one lie necessitating another to maintain a story

American fraudster Frank Abagnale, played by Leonardo DiCaprio in the filmCatch Me If You Can, started out swindling his father out of small change for date money and ended up impersonating an airline pilot, despite the admission that he “couldn’t fly a kite”.

Now scientists have uncovered an explanation for why telling a few porkies has the tendency to spiral out of control. The study suggests that telling small, insignificant lies desensitises the brain to dishonesty, meaning that lying gradually feels more comfortable over time.

Tali Sharot, a neuroscientist at University College London and senior author, said: “Whether it’s evading tax, infidelity, doping in sports, making up data in science or financial fraud, deceivers often recall how small acts of dishonesty snowballed over time and they suddenly found themselves committing quite large crimes.”


Juanita Broaddrick slams Oprah: 'We the people outnumber You, the privileged’

Oprah Winfrey is getting a reality check, courtesy of Bill Clinton rape accuser Juanita Broaddrick.

Juanita took to Twitter on Sunday to slam Oprah, after she effectively urged Americans to hold their collective noses and vote for Hillary Clinton.
Oprah- we don't care what you think. We the people outnumber You, the privileged-We Vote No to the establishment.
“Oprah – we don’t care what you think. We the people outnumber You, the privileged,” Broaddrick tweeted.

“We Vote No to the establishment.”


'Head Space': How Hillary Clinton's Inner Circle Tiptoes Around Her Health Issues

Hillary Clinton’s top campaign officials regularly discuss and assess the Democratic presidential candidate’s mental well-being, according to several conversations seen in Wikileaks’ release of campaign chairman John Podesta’s purported email accounts.

Monday’s new batch of emails revealed a new thread, flagged by The American Mirror, showing that Clinton’s state of mind worried Podesta enough to reach out to the campaign’s Communications Director Jennifer Palmieri — presumably because she was face-to-face with Clinton.

Podesta’s message simply says “How bad is her head?” under the subject heading “Any sense of whether and when she wants to talk?”

Podesta’s phrasing here calls to mind a term that the campaign’s inner circle uses several other times in these emails: “head space.” They drop this term in reference to Clinton’s mental focus, her memory for stump speech lines and talking points, or her ability to handle a task.

The biggest story of the season, and it hasn't really broken out yet

This is one of the most under-reported stories of campaign, and it is not really clear why the Trump campaign has not made more of this, considering the enormous amount of very compelling evidence, and its shocking implications.

We first reported on this story in mid-September, and then got so interested in it, and found it so compelling, that we decided tointerview the American doctor, Ted Noel, who is most active in collecting the evidence. Combined views on our articles and videos we have posted on this exceed 150,000, so it seems that we aren’t the only ones who find this story compelling.

Here is a recent video from him. The more he digs, the more convincing it gets.


Wikileaks: Soros Memo Accused Obama of Fueling Radical Islam to Push TPP

A March 2016 email published Monday by the organization Wikileaks reveals that George Soros, in anticipation of a meeting with Clinton campaign chairman John Podesta, requested Podesta read a memo accusing President Barack Obama of emboldening radical Islam in Malaysia in order to get the Trans-Pacific Partnership agreement (TPP) passed.

Podesta received an email in March 2016 from Soros spokesperson Michael Vachon. “I have attached a memo on TPP and Malaysia, as it may come up when you see George and Alex [Soros, George’s son],” he writes. “In general I think George is more interested in talking about policy than the campaign per se, though I can’t imagine you won’t spend some time on politics.”

Podesta later forwards the attached memo in question to another Clinton campaign official.Subsequent emails seem to indicate Podesta met George and Alex Soros for dinner on March 15 of this year.
