Latest batch of Clinton emails heavily redacted…

BY S.A. MILLER AND STEPHEN DINAN

Capture

The Obama administration slapped a secret designation Friday on a number of Hillary Rodham Clinton’s emails from her time as secretary of state, raising more questions about whether her controversial email arrangement led to classified information being left unsecured.

A new tranche of Clinton emails, released by the State Department under a court order to impose transparency on the Obama administration, contains dozens of documents with information redacted and labeled either “confidential” or “sensitive.”

The classifications generally appear to have been done on Thursday, a day ahead of the release, which means the information wasn’t necessarily classified at the time Mrs. Clinton was emailing about it — but has now been deemed too sensitive to put out in public.

According to the exemptions cited in the redactions, the data is usually either information obtained from a foreign government or internal foreign policy information from the U.S. government.

For example one July 19, 2009, email from Huma Abedin to “H” — Mrs. Clinton — says “Please pass to S:” and then the body of the message is completely redacted, with both the foreign information and internal foreign policy exemptions cited: “Classified by DAS, A/GIS, DoS on 07/30/2015 — Class: CONFIDENTIAL — Reason: 1/4(B), 1.4(D) — Declassify on:07/19/2019”

Another email, marked “SENSITIVE BUT UNCLASSIFIED” at the time it was sent in 2009, but now deemed to contain fully classified information, teases information about “two embassy security issues” — but the actual issues are redacted from the document.

The emails posted Friday were the third major release from the cache of more than 30,000 email that Mrs. Clinton turned over to the State Department last year, shedding new light on her official communications that were hidden from Congress and the public for years.

Mrs. Clinton, the front-runner for the 2016 Democratic presidential nomination, has insisted that she followed all the rules and never handled classified information with her private email account, which was hosted on a private email server located in her home in Chappaqua, N.Y.

However, independent government auditors last week said that they found classified information in at least four of Mrs. Clinton’s emails and requested a Justice Department investigation.

Mrs. Clinton had initially said she never handled classified information on the email account, but has since narrowed that defense, saying none of the information was “classified at the time.”

The former first lady, senator and top diplomat did not turn over her stash of emails until nearly two years after she left office, after a congressional probe learned about her private email account.

Mrs. Clinton handed over about 30,000 messages to the State Department and erased another 32,000 messages that she deemed personal.

At some point, she wiped clean the email server, preventing any of the messages from being recovered.

Questions about her email setup have dogged Mrs. Clinton’s presidential campaign. The controversies have hit her in the polls, with a majority of voters nationwide saying they don’t think she is honest and trustworthy.

Does Obama Want Iran to Nuke Israel?

AISR

BY ERIK RUSH

This Thursday, Secretary of State John Kerry appeared at a hearing of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee concerning the Obama administration’s controversial arrangement to lift economic and other sanctions against the Islamic Republic of Iran in exchange for concessions in their nuclear program, a deal in which Kerry was ostensibly the chief negotiator.

One point of contention has been certain “secret side deals” contained in the agreement with Iran. Rep. Mike Pompeo (R-KS), said he had learned from the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) that there in fact were two “side deals” between Iran and the IAEA. On Wednesday, he stated that Kerry “confirmed that there were in fact side deals and he himself had not seen the agreement.”

Yet after Thursday’s hearing, Kerry said “there are no side deals.”

This was in conflict with statements made by National Security Adviser Susan Rice (the Benghazi Sunday news show serial liar). As reported by The Hill, Rice admitted on Wednesday that there are undisclosed “side deals” between Iran and the IAEA as Republicans alleged, but dismissed the idea that they were “secret.”

As they’ve been doing for some time, at the Senate hearing, Republican critics repeatedly suggested the administration’s negotiating team gave in to pressure from the Iranians and systematically capitulated to their demands.

“I believe you’ve been fleeced,” Committee Chairman Bob Corker (R-TN) told Kerry, claiming the deal opens a path for Iran to develop a nuclear bomb.

For the thousandth time: I am sick to death of Republican leaders refusing to acknowledge this criminal administration’s malicious intent, serial sabotage, and treasonous agenda. The longer Republicans mischaracterize the Obama administration’s actions as bungling, incompetent, inept, lacking leadership, weak, or out-of-touch, the more it appears that they are in collusion with the organized crime syndicate currently occupying the White House.

obama iranBarack Hussein Obama intends to make use of Iran in waging a proxy war against the nation of Israel which, as an Islamist (or at least an Islamist sympathizer), Obama loathes. Iran of course will be more than happy to serve in that role, once they have established a viable nuclear arsenal.

Earlier, INN featured one of my columns which included information provided by intelligence sources indicating that Obama was also attempting to enroll both China and Russia in this proxy war. In this instance, Israel’s recent discovery of enough oil and gas reserves in its territorial waters to put the Arab Muslim nations out of business factored largely, but given Obama’s Islamist affinities and his Hitlerian bent, he already had enough reason to wish Israel “wiped off the map,” as the Iranians have promised to do time and again.

Since 2012, it has been known that Obama’s pit bull, Iranian-born Senior Adviser Valerie Jarrett, had engaged in secret talks with Iran, essentially brokering the nuke deal ahead of formal negotiations. In November of 2013, the Times of Israel called the 2013 Geneva negotiations between Western powers and Iran a “facade,” because the terms of the deal had already been negotiated by Jarrett.

Iran-nuclearSo, which is it? Are the majority of Republican leaders pants-pissing morons, or are they essentially Obama’s co-conspirators, merely offering ineffectual token opposition to the administration in order to save face with voters? Weakness, stupidity, or complicity are the only possibilities, and I don’t believe they are all that stupid or that weak. When nuclear war breaks out between Iran and Israel, do they plan to stand alongside their Democrat colleagues, shaking their heads and claiming what a horrible shame it all is, when in fact it is they who helped bring it about?

Further, has this been the case concerning every treasonous act or unconstitutional measure that Obama and his cronies have taken, from engaging in criminal machinations in order to get Obamacare passed, to using federal agencies to persecute private citizens, to planting Islamist operatives in the Department of Homeland Security and the Pentagon, to ignoring jihadi cells training within our borders, to arming Mexican drug cartels and Muslim terrorists, and orchestrating the 2014 illegal alien tsunami?

Have Republican leaders ignored or misrepresented all of these because they, like Obama, support parting America out like a clinically-dead trauma patient with an organ donor card?

If that’s the case, then they must hang for treason with all of those who helped to facilitate Obama’s rise to power and his treasonous, malevolent agenda.

Susan Rice Forced to Admit Secret About Iran Deal That Obama Was Desperate to Hide

Screen Shot 2015-07-26 at 8.56.52 AM

White House National Security Adviser Susan Rice, best known for adamantly blaming the 2012 Benghazi terrorist attack on a protest over a little-seen YouTube video, recently admitted the existence of two secret “side deals” that formed part of the broader nuclear agreement with Iran.

The side deals were actually between Iran and the U.N.’s International Atomic Energy Agency and related to inspections of the Parchin military site and the possible military dimensions of Iran’s nuclear enrichment program.

The existence of these side deals only came to light after Arkansas Sen. Tom Cotton and Kansas Rep. Mike Pompeo were clued in by the IAEA during a recent meeting in Vienna.

Both Cotton and Pompeo said they were told the deals “will remain secret and will not be shared with other nations, with Congress, or with the public.”

This is in direct violation of President Barack Obama’s commitment to provide the full text and all details about the deal to Congress for their consideration.

“This agreement is the worst of backroom deals,” Pompeo said. “Not only does this violate the Iran Nuclear Agreement Review Act, it is asking Congress to agree to a deal that it cannot review.”

“In failing to secure the disclosure of these secret side deals, the Obama administration is asking Congress and the American people to trust, but not verify,” Cotton added. “That we are only now discovering that parts of this dangerous agreement are being kept secret begs the question of what other elements may also be secret and entirely free from public scrutiny.”

For her part, Rice acknowledged the existence of the side deals and stated that details would be revealed to some members of Congress in a classified briefing, according to Breitbart.

However, Cotton and Pompeo wrote a joint letter to Obama informing him that he has failed to comply with his end of the Corker bill and demanded that he release the details of the two side deals immediately.

This is just another reason why Congress should vote down this horrible deal, even if Obama immediately releases the contents of the secret side deals worked out between Iran and the IAEA.

CLINTON TO TESTIFY TO BENGHAZI COMMITTEE IN OCTOBER

House select committee to investigate her role in connection with the deaths of four Americans in Benghazi, Libya

BY ANNE GEARAN

Hillary Rodham Clinton’s campaign said Saturday that she will testify on Oct. 22 before the House select committee investigating her role in connection with the deaths of four Americans in Benghazi, Libya — an assertion that was almost immediately challenged by a spokesman for the committee.

Clinton campaign spokesman Nick Merrill announced the date and said her testimony would be public.

But Jamal Ware, a spokesman for the committee, said the timing is not set because of ongoing negotiations with Clinton’s lawyer over ground rules.

The wrangling is of a piece with months of back-and-forth between the Republican-led committee and Clinton, whose allies accuse the panel of conducting a fishing expedition for damaging material that might be used against her as she runs for president in 2016.

[Probe sought into possible ‘classified’ details in Clinton private e-mails]

U.S. Ambassador J. Christopher Stevens and three others were killed when militants overran two U.S. compounds in Benghazi in September 2012, in the waning months of Clinton’s term as secretary of state. She has said that she had no direct role in security decisions surrounding the U.S. facilities, but Republican critics claim that her State Department denied protections that might have prevented the attack.

As of Friday, Clinton’s attorney, David Kendall, was still negotiating terms for his client’s appearance, Ware said.

“On the grounds of simple fairness and in order to make appropriate preparation possible, the scope of the questioning [should] be consistent with the scope set forth in the resolution establishing the Select Committee on the Events Surrounding the 2012 Terrorist Attack in Benghazi,” Kendall wrote Friday, according to an excerpt of the letter that the committee released Saturday.

Clinton had long offered to testify in public, but the committee chairman, Rep. Trey Gowdy (R-S.C.), had initially said he preferred a private interview. Although Gowdy said he was trying to keep the session from becoming a circus, Clinton’s team objected on grounds that a closed session could allow Republicans to selectively leak unflattering details.
Gowdy has also said that he needs more documents from the State Department before he questions Clinton.

The committee on Saturday appeared to reject Kendall’s terms, which included that the scope of questioning be limited and that the hearing date, once set, would not change.

Ware also said in the news release that Kendall had previously agreed that Clinton would answer questions about “her unusual e-mail arrangement,” referring to her use of a private e-mail system for government business, including a server in her home.

“Her e-mail arrangement clearly falls within the scope of the Select Committee’s jurisdiction,” Ware continued.

“The Committee will not, now or ever, accept artificial limitations on its congressionally-directed jurisdiction,” Ware said in the statement. “Once there is an agreement on the date and a better understanding of how, if at all, Secretary Clinton’s lawyer’s latest writing differs from previous ones, the Committee will announce said hearing date.”

Clinton’s lawyer has also accused the committee of trying to drag out its investigation into 2016 to use it as a cudgel against the Democratic front-runner.

Her campaign also said Saturday that it does not want any delay in the release of her e-mails from the private account she used while she was secretary of state because of “bureaucratic infighting among the intelligence community.”

The inspector general of the intelligence community said he had found information that should have been classified in a small sample of Clinton’s e-mails and made a “security referral” to the Justice Department under a federal law that requires the FBI to be alerted to any possible compromise of national security information.

Clinton turned over 30,000 e-mails to the State Department after her use of a private e-mail system became an issue. The e-mails are being reviewed for release to Congress and the public.

Famous Journalist Who Exposed Benghazi Makes Massive Announcement About Donald Trump

Screen Shot 2015-07-23 at 2.53.34 PM

Sharyl Attkisson, the journalist who revealed much of the Benghazi cover-up, is now uncovering more liberal tomfoolery at home. This time, it involves a liberal media scion, The Washington Post.

Attkisson fact checked an article about the Donald Trump/John McCain feud that the Post wrote this weekend. As it turned out, even the title — “Trump slams McCain for being ‘captured’ in Vietnam” — was a lie.

“The article’s lead sentence states, ‘Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump slammed Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz., a decorated Vietnam War veteran, on Saturday by saying McCain was not a war hero because he was captured by the North Vietnamese,’” Attkisson wrote.

“In fact, Trump’s actual quote is the opposite of what is presented in the Post’s first sentence,” she explained.

Attkisson pointed out that the Post did not report the larger context anywhere in the story — namely, that Sen. McCain and Trump have been feuding. In fact, McCain threw the first verbal punches, referring to Trump’s supporters as “crazies.”

Did Trump say McCain wasn’t a war hero? “(T)he Post is accurate in reporting that Trump initially said McCain is ‘not a war hero,’” Atkisson said. “But then, Trump immediately modified his statement saying — four times — that McCain is a war hero.”

She then listed several instances where Trump said of McCain, “He is a war hero,” “He’s a war hero, because he was captured,” and “I believe, perhaps, he’s a war hero. But right now, he’s said some very bad things about a lot of people.”

“Is the Post’s characterization an accident?” Attkisson wrote. “It would appear not, because it is repeated in the Post’s caption of the video clip, which also states: ‘Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump said Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz., a decorated Vietnam war veteran, was not a war hero because he was captured by the North Vietnamese (emphasis added).’

“Further, in the Post’s second sentence, Trump is quoted as stating of McCain, ‘He’s not a war hero … He’s a war hero because he was captured,’ but the article selectively left out the phrase Trump had uttered in between: ‘He is a war hero.’”

This isn’t necessarily a shocker. The Washington Post may be best known for breaking the Watergate scandal back in the 1970s, but when it comes to Democrats, the capital’s alleged paper of record has a completely different standard.

If evidence were revealed tomorrow that definitively revealed Hillary Clinton ran the world’s largest heroin trafficking ring out of the State Department, the Post would no doubt run stories praising her for boosting Afghanistan’s economy and keeping Lou Reed out of hospice.

However, it’s always nice to see one of the major mouthpieces of the liberal media empire revealed as the sham it is. Keep it up, Sheryl.

WW3 Granted A Clear Path By Obama

President creating conditions for nuclear war
Published on Jul 18, 2015

Media spin fail artist Susan Rice has done it once again. You may recall how Rice declared on five mainstream media interview shows that the Benghazi attack was a result of rioting due to the horribly produced and nefarious film “Innocence Of The Muslims”. Ms. Rice has stepped in it again. This admission opens up the floodgates to scathing criticism of the highly unpopular deal the Obama Administration, NATO dubbed a “Historic Breakthrough”, made with Iran. Over 100 Billion dollars worth of frozen Iranian assets are to be thawed due to the deal that has Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu deeming it a “Historic Mistake”. The possibility the thawed resources pose to fund terrorism in the region and ignite a whole new stage of middle east conflict is staggering.

As Marines Lie Dead…Guess What President Obama’s Up To?

Screen Shot 2015-07-17 at 6.11.49 PM

BY MICHELLE JESSE

Clearly, our president is broken up and mad as heck about what happened yesterday in Chattanooga, Tennessee. Though he showed more indignation at Major Garrett when asked about the four Americans abandoned in Iran than speaking about the savage murder of four Marines on American soil, we can’t doubt Obama’s “heartbreak” over this latest American tragedy. (I sure hope you can hear the sarcasm in all of this.)

But, true to form, our president is insisting the show must go on. His show.

After the Islamic State brutally beheaded American James Foley, Obama jumped right back onto the golf course, just minutes after addressing the nation. Similarly, within 24 hours of the attack that killed four Americans in Benghazi, Obama went to Las Vegas for a fundraiser.

Now, a day after the terrorist shootings in Chattanooga, Obama is heading to New York for a fundraiser and a Broadway musical.

As WABC-TV New York reports:

President Obama is set to arrive at Kennedy Airport a little after 6 p.m. Friday.

He is in town for a private Democratic National Committee fundraising dinner.

By now, we’ve come to expect that NOTHING gets in the way of fundraising for this president — certainly not the brutal murder of brave Americans at the hands of Islamic jihadists!

But the president will forgo his usual hotel, the Waldorf Astoria, amid fears it could be bugged after it was sold to a Chinese company.

Saturday, President Obama plans to see the Broadway musical “Hamilton” with his daughters.

Yep, nothing shows leadership, or expresses sympathy for the families who lost their Marine loved ones, like a good ol’ Broadway musical! To be fair, tickets to “Hamilton” are a hot item, so I’m sure Obama really had to work it to get those.

So while the nation comes to grips with Islamic terror hitting our home base yet again, and families prepare to bury their loved ones, Obama will be continuing along his merry way, singing his own happy tune. ‘Cause that’s just how he rolls.
