Clinton Crony Carville Hangs Hillary Out to Dry in Interview… She’s in Trouble

James Carville, longtime aide to both Bill and Hillary Clinton, admitted on Tuesday that the Clintons’ decision to accept foreign donations via the Clinton Foundation was an unwise political move, though he stopped short of labeling it a bad or unethical call.

“If you ask me as a political adviser, of course,” he replied after “Morning Joe” co-host Willie Geist asked whether the Clintons should have pledged from day one not to accept foreign donations — versus them having just recently announced an end to said donations if Hillary Clinton is elected president.

“If you ask me as a human being, I’m not sure,” Carville then added, after which he claimed that the billions of dollars received by the Clinton Foundation have been used to save lives.
Perhaps, though according to The Daily Wire, the foundation’s 2013 tax returns revealed that only about 6.4 percent of the $140 million it raised that year went toward “direct aid.” The rest was spent on overhead costs, which included expenses for first-class flights taken by the Clintons.

Instead of saving lives, it sounds more like the Clinton Foundation has been saving Bill and Hillary Clinton’s travel expenses. Co-host Joe Scarborough apparently thought the the same way.

“That’s BS,” he said in response to Carville’s defense of the Clinton Foundation, going on to note that if the foundation were such a great charity, it would not require the direct involvement of both Bill and Hillary.

Regardless, though Carville tried to defend the foundation, at least he admitted the recklessness of the Clintons’ decision to enact a quid-pro-quo arrangement with nations like Saudi Arabia.

Maybe with enough time, he could perhaps even acknowledge that his longtime bosses were and still are little more than a bunch of mob-like career criminals.

WHY DID OBAMA SEND ANOTHER $1.3 BILLION DOLLARS TO IRAN?!!!

by Bethany Blankly
obama-administration-refuses-to-give-congress-details-on-1-3-billion-dollar-payment-iran-933x445

When more people are unemployed and don’t have health insurance, when more veterans are suffering and dying in the U.S. than ever before, why is Barack Obama sending Iran another $1.3 billion?
The Washington Examiner reports that the State Department confirmed that it already paid Iran another $1.3 billion “to settle a failed arms deal from 1979.”

Yet, the State Department could not state who the U.S. government paid in the Iran government.

Nor could the State Department explain what form of payment was used. Did the U.S. send $1.3 billion to Iran in cash, check or money transfer?

Also, the State Department confirmed that it can’t guarantee that the $1.3 billion will not end up in the hands of known terrorists.

State Department spokesman Mark Toner told reporters:

“We can always hand it over to someone who can hand it over to the IRGC,” (Iran Revolutionary Guard Corps, which finances terrorism).
Obama argues that the U.S. owes Iran $1.7 billion plus interest to compensate Iran for weapons purchases it made in 1979 but never received because of the uprising and overthrowing of its previous government.

The first installment was the notoriously illegal shipment of $400 million in cash to Iran, which depending on the day, was reportedly a ransom payment for the release of American hostages.

The remaining money Obama says the U.S. owes Iran has not been sent, but will be, but the State Department doesn’t know how or when that will take place. It also doesn’t know who is receiving the payment in Iran.

Toner said:

“I’ll try my best to get details about that.

“I believe it was Iranian officials, Iranian government officials, I don’t know particularly who individually it was.”
Who paid the $400 million to Iran? Apparently someone Toner “was ‘certain’ that some in the U.S. knew, and said he just didn’t have that information.”

But, it wasn’t a ransom, because the U.S. owes Iran money.

This is blatant treason, but no one is doing anything about it in Congress. Where is Obama getting this money? How is he sending it without Congressional approval?

Capitalism is not to blame for exorbitant rise in price of EpiPen

Epipen
Capitalism is not to blame for exorbitant rise in price of EpiPen
Or the price of much of anything else, for that matter

The outrage of the week is the exorbitant rise in the cost of the EpiPen Auto-Injector. Predictably, the progressive left immediately jumped into full battle mode and trotted out its favorite boogie – capitalism. And just as predictably, they are looking to government to fix it.

The price to cash-paying customers for EpiPens is up some 600 percent to 700 percent over the past decade, with cash customers paying as much as $840 for a two-pack – though coupons are available that would bring the price down to around $650. (Hoping to dampen criticism and head off congressional hearings, Mylan announced yesterday it would begin offering a savings card to reduce the cost by as much as $300.) This is for a $2 ($4 for a two-pack) dose of medicine – a medicine available in Canada for about $100 without a prescription.

So EpiPen maker Mylan is coming under the scrutiny of the congressweasels – although that scrutiny has been tempered by the revelation that Mylan’s CEO Heather Bresch is the daughter of Senator Joe Manchin (D-W.Va.). Over the last several days, Senators Chuck Grassley, Amy Klobuchar and Richard Blumenthal and Representative Elijah Cummings and others have called for information, investigations and explanations from and of Mylan. Klobuchar and Blumenthal are calling for price fixing – a form of collectivism that always fails and leads to shortages and more corruption.

If that’s where they’re looking, they’re looking in the wrong place.

In the years 2012 and 2013, Mylan spent about $4 million lobbying Congress and the Food and Drug Administration. The result is a defacto monopoly on epinephrine injectors. The FDA’s rules require companies with competing injectors to exceed the specifications required by Mylan, and so far the FDA has killed or stymied almost every potential competitor that’s come along. One epinephrine injector allowed into the market is dubbed “inferior” and rarely prescribed.

In 2013 Congress passed the School Access to Emergency Epinephrine Act that provides schools with financial incentives (read money from the federal treasury) to stock epinephrine injectors in case of emergency. The approved injectors are EpiPens, of course. The primary lobbying group pushing the bill was the group Food Allergy Research & Education (FARE). The primary corporate sponsor of FARE is Mylan.

EpiPens have an FDA-mandated one-year expiration meaning, whether used or not, patients are cowed into tossing their old ones in the trash and replacing them and the doctors write new prescriptions each year. The government, through Medicare and Medicaid, pay whatever Mylan decrees the price to be, sans applicable deductibles.

Government meddling in the insurance market – first simply through the regulatory process and via Medicaid and Medicare and now through Obamacare – has completely distorted the pricing structure of health procedures, physician charges and pharmaceutical prices.

In fact, government meddles in the price of everything through the obscene regulatory structure, the tax structure, via subsidies and price supports and corporate welfare, all of which drive up the prices of products and services. This is especially true of most of the foods you buy: from sugar to rice to chicken to raisins.

America is not a capitalist system and has not been for more than 100 years… nor is there one in existence much of anywhere. What there is is a marriage between big government and big business. It’s called fascism – or it was in Italy. And now we have the same thing.

It is state capitalism or monopoly capitalism and, with only very small variations, the whole world is on this system.

Bureaucratic tyranny is as bad in the U.S. as it was in fascist Italy, national socialist Germany or communist Russia. It’s just more sophisticated and the media and the public (non)education system has sold it as democracy and capitalism.

DISGUSTING: State Dept’s PHONE Log Show 148 Messages Hillary Doesn’t Want YOU To See

CqjaM3MUAAAoxzk.jpg-small

Remember that promise that this would be the most transparent administration ever?

THIS doesn’t exactly look “transparent”.

It looks like Hillary’s got her OWN use for “a pen and a phone”

A review of State Department phone logs show Clinton Foundation Chief Operating Officer Laura Graham left the messages for Cheryl Mills, Clinton’s State Department chief of staff and confidante, according to Fox News.
One of those messages referred to “our boss” without any further identification. A second, from January 2012, presumably referred to former President Bill Clinton by his initials. It read, “Please call. WJC is looking for her [Graham] and she wants to talk to you before she talks to him.”

Who — EXACTLY — is this ‘our boss’ person.
Bill? Soros? Some donor?

Is someone pulling Hillary’s strings?

This is good to know if she’s applying for the job of President.

If strings are being pulled, we should know whose hands they are in.

POLITICS TOP STORY Hillary’s Benghazi Emails To “Diane Reynolds” Released… True Identity Exposed

hcc21

Closer examination of Hillary Clinton’s emails may have yielded plenty of answers, but they’ve also yielded plenty of questions. Why did she need “one device?” Did Russia hack in to her email account? And who the heck is Diane Reynolds?

According to WikiLeaks, what sounds like Debbie Reynolds’ less-talented sister (think the Ashley Simpson of the early 1960s) was actually Hillary’s own daughter, Chelsea Clinton.

No less than 67 emails were exchanged between Secretary Clinton and Ms. Reynolds, who happened to be her own daughter.
While a lot of these were harmless, some of them had to do with sensitive political situations like the Sept. 11, 2012, attack on an American diplomatic mission and nearby CIA annex in Benghazi, Libya — an attack that Clinton clearly knew that day was not the result of random protests over an anti-Islam video that got out of hand.

“Two of our officers were killed in Benghazi by an Al Queda-like group: The Ambassador, whom I handpicked and a young communications officer on temporary duty w a wife and two young children,” Clinton wrote to “Reynolds” in one email. “Very hard day and I fear more of the same tomorrow.”

She also mentioned the chaos in Haiti following the 2010 earthquake there.POLITICS TOP STORY

Firstly: “Diane Reynolds?” What, were Johnny Ross and Carlotta Valdez already taken?

Secondly, Hillary Clinton has maintained strenuously that she believed her personal email server was impregnable. However, at the same time, her daughter used a fake name on it. In other words, either she or her daughter knew full well the risk that she was taking by having her emails being delivered by an unsecured server.

Thirdly, let’s point out that this isn’t the first time Clinton has told her daughter things that the American people weren’t privileged to — things that would have changed votes.

Take Benghazi. It’s already been proven that Hillary told Chelsea — oops, sorry, Diane — that the attack was a coordinated terrorist strike. And she did it via email, the same medium your parents usually use to tell you that your retired dad finally completed that tiny birdhouse that he’s worked on for years and has now moved on to cataloging the Houston Oilers games he recorded on VHS back in the 1980s.
The problems with this should be self-evident to our media, except they’re not — which is the reason why Hillary Clinton is the Democrat nominee.

Let’s hope we stop this wannabe familial dynasty in its tracks this year. Otherwise, in another decade or so we’ll be voting for Diane Reynolds.

HUGE HACK EXPOSES SOROS’S WAR ON ISRAEL

A radical left-wing billionaire’s agenda for the Jewish State exposed.

478px-george_soros_47th_munich_security_conference_2011_crop-e1448961448140
Over the weekend hackers leaked reams of confidential reports from the Open Society Foundations, hedge-fund billionaire George Soros’s ostensible charitable network, to the DC Leaks website.

DC Leaks is believed to be backed by Russian intelligence agencies. Soros, who is of Hungarian Jewish origin, is a major supporter of the Democratic Party and a dogged opponent of the state of Israel, or—at the very least—of the policies and values embodied by its elected governments.

The leaks shed new light on the intensity of Soros’s animus against the Jewish state. One of the Open Society Foundations’ aims was to “challeng[e] Israel’s racist and anti-democratic policies” and subvert its image as a democracy in the international arena.

One way Soros’s outfit did that was to funnel funds to highly adversarial Israel-based organizations. Since 2001 the largest total, almost $2.7 million, has gone to the Israeli Arab NGO Adalah. As NGO Monitor details, Adalah vilifies Israel as a “colonial enterprise” and “apartheid state,” charges it with “war crimes,” and calls for its international isolation.

Another $1 million has gone to another Israeli Arab NGO, the I’lam Media Center. During the 2014 Gaza War, I’lam expressed its loyalty to its country—a haven for its Arab minority—by calling on the notoriously anti-Israeli UN Human Rights Council to “[c]ondemn the deliberate, systematic and widespread targeting of Palestinian civilians” and set up an “international commission of inquiry” to criminalize Israel for its war against massive Hamas rocket fire.

Some of the funding to these and similar NGOs was channeled through the New Israel Fund. A far-left group in its own right, the NIF, as NGO Monitor notes, funds organizations “that are active in international and divisive campaigns that contribute to…the demonization and delegitimization of Israel.” As well as being a conduit for the Soros funds, NIF itself has received a total of $837,000 of them.

“Even more troubling,” as Liel Leibovitz notes on Tablet, “the documents repeatedly indicate that the network actively tried to conceal its engagements in Israel and the Palestinian territories.” As part of what NGO monitor calls “the secrecy and lack of transparency inherent in the [Open Society Foundations’] activities,” one document states:

For a variety of reasons, we wanted to construct a diversified portfolio of grants dealing with Israel and Palestine…and in all cases to maintain a low profile and relative distance—particularly on the advocacy front.

That has, of course, gotten increasingly difficult in a world of hackers and mysterious websites.

In seeking to blacken Israel’s name, Soros’s network had an eye for what it saw as golden opportunities. One, as stated in a report by the network, was “a particular shift in political dynamics particularly in the US reflected by the publication of the Walt and Mearsheimer article ‘The Israel Lobby’ [denounced as antisemitic] in Spring 2006.”

“Another encouraging shift,” as Leibovitz notes, was “the rise of the international movement to boycott Israel.” As the same Soros-network report stated:

A number of factors make this a good moment to review this portfolio, including some new or improved opportunities we may choose to exploit. In recent years there’s been heightened international solidarity around Palestinians’ rights, the rise of the Boycott, Divestment, and Sanctions (BDS) movement and other economic levers, and increased use and traction of arts and culture by Palestinians as a means to raise awareness of violations and the impact of the conflict.”

It translates into: make use of anything—including the BDS movement, whose explicit aim is to destroy Israel—to weaken, harass, undermine, and defame the state of Israel.

Soros, himself, said that he

“grew up in a Jewish, anti-Semitic home,” and that his parents were “uncomfortable with their religious roots.” They even changed their name from Shwartz to Soros in 1936 to disassociate themselves from the Jewish community.

That Soros has also acknowledged being neither “a Zionist, nor…a practicing Jew,” nor very “engaged in Jewish affairs,” is one thing. That he works to drag the Jewish state into oblivion along with him is, of course, quite another.

Ironically, the DC Leaks website that has exposed the documents presents Soros in a vicious antisemitic caricature, including calling him a “vampire” who controls “puppets” and “slaves” who “spill blood of millions and millions of people just to make him even more rich.” Soros won’t, it’s safe to assume, be looking toward Israel—under intermittent vicious attack for 68 years—for solidarity.

The Real Reason George Soros is Trying to Affect The Election Should Terrify All Americans

George-Soros

George Soros

The left wing billionaire George Soros is trying to impact the 2016 election but not in the way most people think. You might assume that he just wants a Democrat to win but in fact, it’s much much worse.

Breitbart reports:

Leaked Doc: Soros Open Society Seeks to Reshape Census, Electoral Districts

According to a hacked document, George Soros’s Open Society Foundation is funding key progressive groups with the stated goal of attempting to “influence appropriations for the (U.S.) Census Bureau” while pushing to change the methods in which racial categories are counted for the coming 2020 Census.

The 2020 Census is critical in determining the gain or loss of districts and the reapportionment of the numbers of House seats allotted to each state, otherwise known as redistricting. The Census could determine whether Democrats have a better chance at gaining control of the House next decade.

Soros’s group clearly understands the centrality of the 2020 Census and is apparently seeking to influence the outcome.

The information is revealed in a hacked December 2015 document titled, “Voting Rights Portfolio Review: Outcomes Summary” from the Open Society’s U.S. Programs branch.

The memo relates the review was initiated at the request of Open Society Foundations President Chris Stone to “examine the voting rights field and our related grantmaking.”

A section titled, “First grants to be made” identified four progressive groups to be funded to help influence the methodology of the 2020 Census: The National Association of Latino Elected and Appointed Officials (NALEO), the Leadership Conference, Asian Americans Advancing Justice (AAJC) and Demos.

So basically, he’s trying to reshape the electorate.

This is the long term goal of the left. They want to make it impossible for Republicans to win any future elections.

Judge orders search of new Clinton emails for release by Sept 13

103894270-GettyImages-534816054.530x298
A U.S. judge ordered the State Department on Thursday to release by Sept. 13 any emails it finds between Hillary Clinton and the White House from the week of the 2012 attack in Benghazi, Libya, among the thousands of additional emails uncovered by federal investigators.

The order came after the Federal Bureau of Investigation gave the department a disc earlier this month containing 14,900 emails to and from Clinton and other documents it said it had recovered that she did not return to the government.

Clinton, the Democratic presidential nominee, has been criticized for using an unauthorized private email system run from a server in the basement of her home while she was secretary of state from 2009 to 2013, a decision she says was wrong and that she regrets.

The issue has hung over her campaign for the White House and raised questions among voters about her trustworthiness.

Judge William Dimitrouleas of the U.S. District Court in southern Florida made his order in response to a request by the conservative watchdog group Judicial Watch, which is suing the State Department for Clinton-era records under freedom of information laws.

Spokesmen for Clinton did not respond to requests for comment.

At least one other judge has said the department will eventually have to release all the newly recovered work emails, and at least some are expected to appear before the Nov. 8 presidential election.
After the system’s existence became more widely known, Clinton returned what she said were all her work emails to the State Department in 2014, and the department released them in batches to the public, some 30,000 in all.

The FBI took her server in 2015 after it was discovered she had sent and received classified government secrets through the system, which the government bans.

Clinton has said she did not know the information was classified at the time.

After a year-long investigation, FBI Director James Comey said last month that Clinton should have recognized the sensitivity of the information and that she had been “extremely careless” with government secrets. But he said there were not enough grounds for a prosecution, a decision criticized by Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump and other Republicans.

It remained unclear if there were any newly discovered emails that related to the September 2012 attack on a U.S. facility in Benghazi, Libya, in which four Americans, including U.S. Ambassador Chris Stevens, were killed.

“Using broad search terms, we have identified a number of documents potentially responsive to a Benghazi-related request,” Elizabeth Trudeau, a State Department spokeswoman, said in a statement. “At this time, we have not confirmed that the documents are, in fact, responsive. We also have not determined if they involve Secretary Clinton.”

DIRTY HILLARY CNN’s – HLN Cancels ‘Dr. Drew’ Days After He Expressed Concerns Over Hillary’s Health

CNN canceled Dr. Drew Pinsky’s long-running primetime program on HLN Thursday, just a week after the board certified physician and media personality expressed he was “gravely concerned” about Hillary Clinton’s health.

CNN executive vice president Ken Jautz broke the news Thursday afternoon, abruptly announcing that Dr. Drew On Call would end its five-year run next month.

“Dr. Drew and I have mutually agreed to air the final episode of his show on September 22,” Jautz said in a statement. “Dr. Drew and his team have delivered more than five years of creative shows and I want to thank them for their hard work and distinctive programming.”
Jautz continued: “Their audience-driven shows, in particular, were innovative and memorable TV. And Dr. Drew has been an authoritative voice on addiction and on many other topical issues facing America today.”

“It has been a privilege working at HLN,” Pinsky said in a separate statement Thursday. “My executive producer Burt Dubrow and our outstanding staff and contributors were consistently exceptional. I am very excited to stay within the CNN Worldwide family as a contributor.”

HLN, which is operated by CNN, is reportedly rebooting its entire primetime lineup. However, the sudden announcement is conspicuous for some, considering Pinsky grabbed headlines a week ago for expressing concerns over Clinton’s ability to serve as president.
Pinsky appeared on KABC’s McIntyre in the Morning show on Tuesday Aug. 16, where he was asked to debunk theories about Clinton’s health.

Instead, Dr. Drew broke rank with his mainstream media colleagues — who have been anxiously attempting to sweep such questions under the rug — when he gave an assessment of the presidential nominee that seemed to validate concerns raised by GOP nominee Donald Trump and others.

Pinsky explained that he and his colleague, Dr. Robert Huizenga, also shared concerns about Clinton’s overall health, but also shared opinions about the quality medical care she has been receiving.

“Both of us concluded that if we were providing the care she was receiving, we would be ashamed to show up in a doctors’ lounge,” Pinsky said. “We would be laughed out. She’s receiving sort of 1950s-level care by our evaluation.”
After reviewing the few Clinton medical records that have been made public, Pinsky added he feels Clinton suffers from hypothyroidism, and that she is receiving “bizarre” and outdated treatments.

The original KABC broadcast of the segment is now unavailable, however Pinsky’s comments can be heard on the video below.

CNN, which had been largely ignoring questions about Clinton’s health before Dr. Drew’s comments, spent Thursday morning instead discussing Trump’s health.

The company also ran a story on its website Thursday headlined: “Clinton’s health is fine, but what about Trump?”

Dr. Drew Pinsky will air his final HLN show on Sep. 22, at which point the network will seek to find a permanent replacement. In the interim, Dr. Drew On Call will be replaced by reruns of the popular crime documentary series Forensic Files, and reruns of CNN original programming.

BUSTED: Hillary’s HOPING To God You & Trump DON’T SEE This Video Of Her …

Quick, before it’s banned from the internet! Make sure every voter in AMERICA sees this NOW!

In 2010, Hillary recalls fondly her ‘friend and mentor’ Sen. Robert C. Byrd, ‘true American original, a man of surpassing eloquence and nobility’. She will remember him for ‘many things’… but apparently not for his KKK affiliation.

Sen. Robert C. Byrd was not just a Klansman in West Virgninia, he was a recruiter, brining in 150 new members.
While in Congress, Sen. Byrd famously filibustered the Senate for 14 hours on the shameful… 1964 Civil Rights Act.

But wait, there’s more!

In a letter written in 1945, Byrd complained about the integration of blacks into the military:

“I shall never fight in the armed forces with a negro by my side… Rather I should die a thousand times, and see Old Glory trampled in the dirt never to rise again, than to see this beloved land of ours become degraded by race mongrels, a throwback to the blackest specimen from the wilds.”
Oh, that Senator Byrd! Just look at that legacy…

Long after Byrd claimed to disavow the KKK, he caused controversy and had to apologize for using the phrase “white niggers” in an interview. “There are white niggers,” he said. “I’ve seen a lot of white niggers in my time, if you want to use that word. We just need to work together to make our country a better country, and I’d just as soon quit talking about it so much.”
Clinton’s embrace of Byrd during her time as a U.S. Senator — both literally and figuratively — has been a prominent meme among Donald Trump’s supporters at the Reddit community r/The_Donald. Members have creatively found ways to present a picture that shows Byrd’s Senate portrait photoshopped on an image of a man in Klan regalia — placed side by side with a 2004 AP photo of Byrd drawing in Clinton for a kiss.

Watch Hillary’s ‘touching’ tribute to Sen. Byrd here:
