Memo sheds new light on Clinton-Russia uranium scandal

Featured image Of all the Clinton Foundation/Clinton cash scandals, the one I’ve always considered most disturbing involves the Russians gaining control over a large share of America’s uranium. Relying on a New York Times report, I wrote about this scandal here. Newly uncovered State Department documents shed additional light on this scandal. But before getting to the new material, I’ll summarize what the New York Times reported. What we knew already In »

Who Made America Hate Again?

Featured image I don’t think we have said much about Hillary Clinton’s speech in which she denounced Donald Trump as a racist of the “alt-right,” thereby confusing, no doubt, most of her audience. Much could be said about Hillary’s smears–a Republican racist running for president? Not again!–but I want to comment on just one aspect of it: her claim that “the billionaire businessman’s campaign [is] one that will ‘make America hate again.'” »

Inadvertent Truth from Hillary

The Clinton bribery standard

Featured image Charles Krauthammer devotes his weekly column to “The Clinton bribery standard.” Charles is disgusted by the evidence of corruption that is revealed in the latest tranches of Clinton emails. He accurately states the defense advance by Hillary Clinton and her retainers: “There was no quid pro quo.” Krauthammer comments: “What a long way we’ve come. This is the very last line of defense. Yes, it’s obvious that access and influence »

Clintons Already Planning Next Stage of Corruption

Featured image Geez—Hillary Clinton hasn’t even won the election yet, and the Clintons are already planning to cheat on their promise to “scale back” the Clinton Foundation. From the Wall Street Journal this morning: The Clinton Foundation is considering exceptions to its plan to stop accepting corporate and foreign donations and reduce family involvement as a way to insulate Hillary Clinton from potential conflicts of interest if elected president. . . While »

Madam Hillary phones it in

Featured image In a telephone interview with Jake Tapper on CNN last night, Hillary Clinton addressed her meetings with Clinton Foundation donors as Secretary of State. She explained: “I know there is a lot of smoke, and there is no fire. This AP report? Put it in context. This excludes nearly 2,000 meetings I had with world leaders, plus countless other meetings with U.S. government officials when I was secretary of state. »

Hillary’s Emails and Clinton Cash: the Scandals Come Together

Featured image If you feel that you are hopelessly behind on the news regarding Hillary Clinton’s many breaches of security through her home-brew server as well as the Clinton Cash pay-to-play scandal, in which Hillary more or less auctioned off the State Department, Glenn Reynolds’ latest USA Today column is a good way to catch up. Back in July, Democratic presidential nominee and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton said, “there is »

Why not the worst? [with comment by Paul]

Featured image We are subject to the tyranny of the present. Let’s try briefly to place our current election in historical context for whatever educational and entertainment value it may have. Donald Trump is the worst candidate ever nominated for president by the Republican Party. From John Fremont and Abraham Lincoln to Donald Trump — as the Grateful Dead put it in “Truckin'”: what a long, strange trip it’s been. Who was »

Annals of Clinton corruption

Featured image The new batch of emails showing that the State Department gave special access to top Clinton Foundation donors while Hillary Clinton was Secretary of State inspired Judicial Watch to recount the facts surrounding Claudio Osorio. He’s a Clinton Foundation donor who leveraged his “generosity” to get $10 million from the government with help from the Clinton State Department. Osorio is now serving a 12-year prison sentence after scamming the government »

The State Department as Protection Racket

Featured image Paul wrote yesterday about the Huma Abedin emails discovered by Judicial Watch that show a pattern of corruption, whereby donors to the Clinton Foundation, the Clintons’ personal slush fund, got access to Secretary of State Clinton for help with their problems or priorities. Today the Associated Press follows up with a systematic and devastating analysis of Hillary’s calendar at the State Department: More than half the people outside the government »

Colin Powell refuses to take fall on Clinton email scandal

Featured image Colin Powell has spent most of this century trying to get back in the good graces of liberals who can’t forgive him for his role in the second Iraq war. He’s attempted this mainly by bashing Republicans and accusing them of racism. Never mind that Republicans were the ones who promoted him to positions that it’s far from clear he would have obtained but for his race. The problem with »

The ultimate Clinton scandal

Featured image The scandal of Hillary Clinton’s private email server is in a sense the ultimate Clinton scandal. It shows Hillary Clinton’s heedless treatment of national security for corrupt personal reasons. It shows her willingness to say anything to extricate herself from a fix. Indeed, the scandal shows her pathological approach to facts. She may believe her own lies. One has the impression that she could pass a lie detector test on »

In search of Rachelle

Featured image We keep getting personal email messages sent to Power Line from the Clinton campaign mysteriously addressed to “Rachelle.” I don’t even know a “Rachelle” who spells her name like that. Subject: “Our numbers are dipping, Rachelle” — I guess that’s today’s good news — here is today’s message: Let’s talk about the state of the campaign, Rachelle. Our poll numbers are holding steady, which is good. We’re growing our field »

Hillary’s Splendid Deception?

Featured image We know that the Clintons are world-class deceivers and liars, but one thing they have always been able to count on is for conservatives to overreach with their attacks, sometimes lurching into conspiracy theories more suitable for Lyndon LaRouche. So Hillary had Vince Foster murdered, Bill Clinton ran drugs from the Mena airport, snorted coke from Kim Khardashian’s derriere, partied regularly with Bill Cosby, and cheated relentlessly on his . »

The Clinton MOU & the Clinton MO

Featured image The Washington Post has published an editorial gently reviewing the revelations in the emails released last week via the litigation of Judicial Watch with the State Department. The editorial concludes: “Should Ms. Clinton win in November, she will bring to the Oval Office a web of connections and potential conflicts of interest, developed over decades in private, public and, in the case of her family’s philanthropic work, quasi-public activities. As »

Your Hillary Hillarity for the Day

Featured image A reader sends along the following joke making the rounds on the interwebs, and it’s too good not to share with all of our readers: THE CLOCK A man died and went to Heaven. As he stood in front of the Pearly Gates, he saw a huge wall of clocks behind him. He asked, “What are all those clocks for?” St. Peter answered, “Those are Lie-Clocks. Everyone who has ever »

Report: Clinton Foundation under federal investigation after all

Featured image A few days ago, CNN reported that the FBI asked to investigate the Clinton Foundation earlier this year, but the Department of Justice said it did not have enough evidence to open a formal probe. I wrote about this report here.
