Police say a freight train car that derailed in northern Iowa rolled into and damaged a trackside tavern called DeRailed.

Police Chief Hugh Anderson says the accident occurred around 4 a.m. Tuesday as crews moved rail cars and changed connections in Charles City. Anderson says it appears that the track separated and the grain car tipped about 45 degrees into the back of the bar.

Anderson says a patrol officer called him to say a train car had derailed into Derailed, adding that “it’s not every day you get to say that.”

No one was injured. The bar owner estimates damage at $10,000…

At Least Four Killed And Dozens Injured In Series Of Coordinated Terrorist Attacks In Tailand – Daily Mail

At least four people have been killed and dozens more injured in a series of co-ordinated attacks across tourist destinations in Thailand that saw bombs hidden in plant pots and flower beds detonated by mobile phones.

Western tourists fled in terror as the first two blasts hit the seaside resort of Hua Hin overnight, killing one Thai woman and one other and wounding 21 people.

At least one British national was reportedly among those injured in the twin bomb attack, which targeted a busy street filled with bars and restaurants. The town was also hit by small explosions on Friday morning.

Hours later two small bombs were detonated in the beach town Patong, Phuket, another area popular with foreign tourists. One man was said to have been ‘lightly wounded’ in the attack. His nationality is not yet known.

Thai police and media have also reported similar strikes in the southern regions which killed one person in Surat Thani and and another in Trang, with both used as stop-off points for many visitors travelling on to the country’s islands.

There were also reports of blasts or fires in Phang Nga and Krabie.

Thai officials have said they believe the attacks were carried out locally and are not terror related. There is some suggestion they were launched by the opponents of the ruling junta, which recently bolstered its military power…

Joint FBI-U.S. Attorney Probe Of Clinton Foundation Underway – Daily Caller

Multiple FBI investigations are underway involving potential corruption charges against the Clinton Foundation, according to a former senior law enforcement official.

The investigation centers on New York City, where the Clinton Foundation has its main offices, according to the former official who has direct knowledge of the activities.

Prosecutorial support will come from various U.S. Attorneys Offices – a major departure from other centralized FBI investigations.

The New York-based probe is being led by Preet Bharara, the U.S. attorney for the Southern District of New York. Bharara’s prosecutorial aggressiveness has resulted in a large number of convictions of banks, hedge funds and Wall Street insiders.

The official said involvement of the U.S. Attorney’s Office in the Southern District of New York “would be seen by agents as a positive development as prosecutors there are generally thought to be more aggressive than the career lawyers within the DOJ.”

Bharara’s government biography notes that he, “has applied renewed focus on large-scale, sophisticated financial frauds by creating two new units – the Complex Frauds Unit and the complementary Civil Frauds Unit.

“The Civil Frauds Unit has collected close to $500 million in settlements since its inception, including multi-million dollar settlements with Deutsche Bank and CitiMortgage for faulty lending practices and other fraudulent conduct.”…

.

.
The 2015 version of an annual survey of intelligence analysts and their managers conducted by the Office of the Director of National Intelligence (ODNI) discovered that 40 percent of the analysts surveyed who were working for the U.S. military’s Central Command – whose area of responsibility includes Syria and Iraq – said “they had experienced an attempt to distort or suppress intelligence in the past year.”

This survey result was affirmed in an interim report released today by a Joint Task Force formed by the chairmen of the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence, the House Armed Services Committee and the House Appropriations Subcommittee on Defense.

The task force includes Rep. Ken Calvert (R.-Calif.), who is a member of the appropriations committee; Rep. Mike Pompeo (R.-Kan.), who is a member of the intelligence commmittee; and Rep. Brad Wentrup (R-Ohio), who serves on the intelligence and armed services committees…

Nearly 100 People Shot In Democrat-Run Chicago In Less Than A Week – Chicago Tribune

Nearly 100 people have been shot in Chicago in less than a week, pushing the number of shooting victims so far this year to more than 2,500 – about 800 more than this time last year, according to data kept by the Tribune.

Between last Friday afternoon and early Thursday, at least 99 people were shot in the city, 24 of them fatally. At least nine people were killed on Monday alone, the deadliest day in Chicago in 13 years, according to Tribune data. Among the wounded that day was a 10-year-old boy shot in the back as he played on his front porch in Lawndale.

The number of shooting victims in Chicago stood at 2,514 Thursday morning. At this time last year, 1,725 people had been shot. The city has not seen this level of gun violence since the 1990s, a trend the Police Department has blamed on lax gun laws and feuding gang factions.

Over eight hours from Wednesday evening through early Thursday, three people were killed and at least 10 others were wounded in the city.

A 45-year-old man was killed and two others were wounded when someone walked up to their van in the Gresham neighborhood around 1:55 a.m. Thursday, yelled “Hey” and started shooting, police said.

The three – two men and a woman – had been stopped at a stop sign in the 8000 block of South Marshfield Avenue when the gunman opened fire, police said. The van took off, made a left turn on 78th Street and stopped, police said.

The 45-year-old man was shot in the back and forearm. He was taken to Advocate Christ Medical Center in Oak Lawn and was pronounced dead, police said…

NFL Denies Dallas Cowboys’ Request To Honor Fallen Police With Helmet Decal – Breitbart

The National Football League has denied a request by the Dallas Cowboys for players to wear a sticker on their helmets to show support for the Dallas Police Department that lost five officers in one terrible attack last month.

The “Arm In Arm” decal was to have been worn when the team opens its preseason schedule during the upcoming bout with the Los Angeles Rams.

But Cowboys executive vice president Stephen Jones told the media that NFL officials said every team “must be uniform” and the stickers were nixed. Jones said the team will “respect their decision” and drop the plans to show support for the Dallas PD…

Obama Regime Sued By Western Energy Alliance For Illegally Canceling Oil And Natural Gas Lease Sales – The Hill

An energy trade group is suing the Obama administration over canceled oil and natural gas lease sales in the West.

The Western Energy Alliance on Thursday sued the Interior Department and the Bureau of Land Management (BLM), saying they are breaking congressional mandates by canceling several lease sales over the past two years.

The group, which represents oil and natural gas companies, said the administration is working too closely with the anti-fossil fuel activists who have pushed officials to end lease sales on federal land.

“Through protests and petitions, the Keep-It-In-The-Ground movement is trying to coerce BLM into violating the law by stopping all leasing on federal lands,” Kathleen Sgamma, the group’s vice president of government and public affairs, said in a statement.

“Yet without doing anything, activists could achieve the same goal just by leaving BLM to its own devices. Western Energy Alliance is simply asking the courts to compel BLM to follow decades-old law and hold quarterly lease sales in every oil and natural gas state.”

Federal law directs the BLM to hold four lease sales annually in a handful of oil- and gas-producing states in the West, but the agency has canceled or postponed several such auctions there since 2015.

Environmental advocates have threatened to protest several of the lease sales as part of their effort to ban fossil fuel development on federal land…

Democrat Email Hack Much Wider Than First Suspected – Daily Caller

An investigation by the FBI has revealed the hack against the Democratic National Committee (DNC) may be much larger than expected.

According to The New York Times, the hack extended well beyond the DNC, and may have affected hundreds of other Democratic party officials and organizations, including the Democratic Governors Association.

The FBI briefed staff members of the House and Senate intelligence committees last week on the investigation into the email hacks against the DNC in July. The FBI told staff it has no doubt that the Russian government was behind the hack, according to The New York Times, citing an anonymous staff member briefed on the matter…

Government Incompetence Update: Dangerous Fugitives Living In Taxpayer-Funded Public Housing – Daily Caller

Federal law bans fugitives from living in taxpayer-funded public housing, and federal officials have no idea how many criminals are doing it anyway.

An estimated 1,300 felony fugitives were found living in federally funded homes in just one region of the country in 2012. Local public housing authorities refused to evict them, according to an unpublished Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) Inspector General (IG) investigation first reported July 26, 2016, by The Daily Caller News Foundation.

Those residents faced warrants for crimes ranging from felony theft to rape and murder. But four years later, HUD officials don’t know what happened to the 1,300, or how many live in taxpayer-funded residences now.

“No data to report to you,” agency spokesman Brian Sullivan told TheDCNF after repeated inquiries over a nearly three-week period.

It’s unclear if the original 1,300 fugitives were ever arrested or evicted. The IG report was never made public because of “questions about the validity of the data,” IG spokesman Darryl Madden previously told TheDCNF. He refused to provide details.

Madden called the report a “draft,” though the document lacked the typical markings used to indicate that status.

Regardless, the IG’s report was labeled as a potential “systemic” issue, which suggests investigators are concerned local authorities are refusing to evict fugitives from federally funded housing across the country…

Reuters Confirms CNN Lied About Secret Service Visiting Trump – Red State Watcher

Secret Service says CNN ran a fake story claiming they’d spoken to Trump about his comments. Not true says Reuters:

A federal official on Wednesday said the U.S. Secret Service had not formally spoken with Republican Donald Trump’s presidential campaign regarding his suggestion a day earlier that gun rights activists could stop Democratic rival Hillary Clinton from curtailing their access to firearms.

Following Trump’s comment at a rally on Tuesday in which he suggested that gun rights activists could stop Clinton from appointing liberal anti-gun justices to the U.S. Supreme Court, a federal official familiar with the matter told Reuters that there had been no formal conversations between the Secret Service and the Trump campaign…

Cuban Woman Indicted In Florida For Marriage Fraud With 10 Illegal Aliens – Breitbart

A Cuban U.S. resident who has more marriages to her name than Zsa Zsa Gabor has now been indicted for immigration fraud, after allegedly being paid to wed 10 illegal immigrants.

Prosecutors say Yosandra Piedra Vasquez was paid to marry the 10 illegal immigrants to secure them legal status in the U.S., according to Agence France-Presse. The Cuban-born bride married seven illegal immigrants in south Florida and three in Georgia between 2002 and 2012.

A federal grand jury handed down the indictment charging Vasquez and her crime partner Yoel de Moya Lozada – who allegedly recruited interested customers for Vasquez. They are charged with conspiracy to defraud the U.S. and conspiracy to encourage and induce an alien to live in the U.S. illegally, according to AFP.

The indictment comes as an increasing number of Cuban migrants are making their way to the Texas border via Central America.

Vasquez and Lozada, AFP quoted the indictment, ”did knowingly and willfully combine, conspire, confederate, and agree with each other (…) to arrange fraudulent marriages.”

Vasquez married her first fake husband “J.A.G” 2002, then “ N.E.M.” in 2006, according to In Cuba Today. She married “C.R.R.K.” and “ P.A.G.G.” and another unidentified individual in 2008. She married another three men in 2009, “F.A.G.C.,” “L.C.D.P.,” and “G.M.” In 2010, she married “N.F.R.F.” and finally in 2012 she married “G.M.F.”

“Using one’s immigration status for fraudulent purposes, such as in this case, is a serious crime,” said Kathy A. Redman, Southeast Regional Director for USCIS, said according to In Cuba Today…

Hillary Clinton put the State Department up for sale, with top aides pulling strings and doing favors for fat-cat donors to the Clinton Foundation – including a shady billionaire, according to smoking-gun emails released Tuesday.

The stunning revelations include how wealthy contributors seeking influence or prestigious government gigs could fork over piles of cash to get access to Clinton’s inner circle, including top aides Huma Abedin and Cheryl Mills.

In an April 2009 message to Abedin and Mills, Doug Band, who was overseeing the Clinton Foundation at the time, urgently asked for a meeting between a top US official and Gilbert Chagoury – a major donor to the Clinton family charity…

Democrat Regulators Trying To Stifle Free Speech Online… Again – Washington Free Beacon

A leading federal regulator is renewing efforts to restrict political speech on the internet in what critics are describing as an extra-legal campaign to censor political groups, nonprofits, and even online news organizations.

Democratic Federal Election Commissioner Ann Ravel moved this week to deny a conservative nonprofit group legal protections that exempt most online political communications from federal political spending limits and disclosure laws.

Experts say the move is an attempt to undermine the “internet exemption,” as the provision is known, without going through normal legislative and regulatory processes. In effect, they say, Ravel was denying legal protections to the group simply because she disagrees that those protections should exist.

Ravel’s move came as the FEC weighed a complaint against the Foundation for a Secure and Prosperous America, a conservative nonprofit that ran television ads last year attacking Sen. Rand Paul’s (R., Ky.) support for the nuclear deal with Iran.

The FEC’s six commissioners unanimously ruled that the group’s failure to report expenditures associated with the ads did not violate federal law, since they focused on a legislative issue and did not call for the election or defeat of a political candidate.

However, the commissioners split on a separate question. In its legal analysis, the FEC’s general counsel noted that four YouTube videos cited in the complaint against the foundation would have been legally permissible even if they had engaged in “express advocacy.”…

A union boss from the Laborers’ International Union of North America (LIUNA) made sexist and racist comments against Donald Trump supporters outside of Hillary Clinton’s rally in Las Vegas last week.

The man is with LIUNA, which has endorsed Clinton for president. According to sources, within about 15 minutes of the anti-Hillary protesters arriving at Clinton’s rally with their signs, a large SUV pulled up with union members wearing orange shirts and carried signs ready to counter-protest.

In one interaction with the anti-Hillary protesters, the labor union boss exposed the fact that he has an apparent foot fetish. The man approached a female protester and said, “Where you get your feet done?”…

Hillary Propped Up By Man To Keep From Falling Over During Campaign Speech – Gateway Pundit

A photo from April shows now-Democratic Party presidential nominee Hillary Clinton being firmly held up by a man on her right side to keep her from falling over as she addressed an overflow crowd during a campaign stop in Los Angeles, while a man on her left side is seen urgently extending his arm to aid in propping up Clinton. Obscured behind Clinton is a third person whose extended hand can be seen reaching out to steady her left arm.

The man holding Clinton up has one hand clasping her right hand and his other hand grasping her bicep. Clinton is leaning forward speaking to the crowd using a microphone held in her left hand.

The photo by Mark Ralston with AFP/Getty Images was published with the caption:

“US Democratic Presidential candidate Hillary Clinton speaks to the overflow crowd who were unable to get into the venue during a campaign rally at the Southwest College in Los Angeles, California on April 16, 2016. / AFP / Mark Ralston (Photo credit should read MARK RALSTON/AFP/Getty Images)”

Another photo taken by Ralston from the same perspective shows Clinton was standing on a large, square concrete platform meant for sitting that was wide enough to hold several standing people. Clinton is seen standing alone and unaided in that photo.

It is not clear what made Clinton lose her balance such that three people had to rush to keep her from falling down…

A teenage Subway employee was arrested Monday in Utah after investigators say the sandwich shop worker purposely tainted a police officer’s drink with illegal drugs.

Tanis Lloyd Ukena, 18, was arrested Monday evening on suspicion of felony surreptitious administration of a poisonous substance, the Salt Lake Tribune reported.

Authorities say the teen was working the drive-thru of Subway in nearby Layton when an unidentified law enforcement officer in uniform dropped by earlier that afternoon and ordered a lemonade. After reviewing surveillance camera footage and conducting tests on the drink, investigators determined that the employee deliberately drugged the cop – a second-degree felony.

“In the video, (Ukena) is seen filling the drink portion of the order at the drive-up fountain area,” according to a Davis County Jail report acquired by KSL-TV…

Senator Sessions Highlights 20 ‘Vetted’ Terrorist Refugees As Obama Ramps Up Admissions From Terror Hot-Spots – Breitbart

The Obama Administration’s ongoing effort to admit tens of thousands of refugees from Syria and other hotbeds of terrorism endangers the safety of the United States and has already had dire domestic consequences, Sen. Jeff Sessions (R-AL), the Chairman of the Subcommittee on Immigration and the National Interest warns.

“Despite a clear nexus between immigration and terrorism, and warnings from top officials in his own Administration about their inability to properly vet refugees, President Obama remains in denial about the dangers that his policies pose to the United States,” Sessions said in a statement Wednesday.

To Sessions, Obama’s refugee plan is reckless and fails to consider the real perils of a refugee flow that has already been infiltrated by terrorists in the past. The Alabama lawmaker said, “the Obama Administration leads the United States down a dangerous path – admitting as many refugees as possible from areas of the world where terrorists roam freely, and granting a temporary amnesty to Syrians living in the United States illegally. And contrary to the assertions made by many, the potential for future terror activity is real.”

According to Sessions, the administration should be seeking out locations of refuge for displaced migrants close to their homelands so that they might be able to return once the conflict is over. Instead, however, the Obama Administration has pursued a plan of further displacement, promising to bring at least 10,000 Syria refugees to U.S. shores by the end of this fiscal year – as Sessions noted, a nearly 500 percent increase over FY 2015 when just 1,600 Syrian refugees were admitted to the U.S.

“This radical increase places the safety and security of the American people at risk, there will surely be consequences,” Sessions said…

Email Shows Hillary’s Chief Of Staff At State Department Covered Up Unsecured, Private Server For Years – Daily Beast
.

.
The top aide to Secretary of State Hillary Clinton was told in late 2012 that a non-profit watchdog group had requested information about Clinton’s email, including the number of accounts she used, according to documents released Wednesday.

The aide, Chief of Staff Cheryl Mills, and other Clinton advisers knew at the time that the secretary was using a private email system to conduct official business. But despite the information request, the State Department told the group that it had found no “responsive” records.

“This is evidence that Cheryl Mills covered up Hillary Clinton’s email system,” Tom Fitton, the president of Judicial Watch, a conservative group that sued for information about that original 2012 request, said in a statement. “She was aware of the [Freedom of Information Act] request about Clinton’s email accounts and allowed a response to go out that was a plain lie. And you can bet if Cheryl Mills knew about this inquiry, then Hillary Clinton did, too.”…
