Hillary Sought Pentagon, State Department Contracts For Chelsea’s Friend – Washington Free Beacon

Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton sought to arrange Pentagon and State Department consulting contracts for her daughter’s friend, prompting concerns of federal ethics rules violations.

Clinton in 2009 arranged meetings between Jacqueline Newmyer Deal, a friend of Chelsea Clinton and head of the defense consulting group Long Term Strategy Group, with Pentagon officials that involved contracting discussions, according to emails from Clinton’s private server made public recently by the State Department. Clinton also tried to help Deal win a contract for consulting work with the State Department’s director of policy planning, according to the emails.

Deal is a close friend of Chelsea Clinton, who is vice chair of the Clinton Foundation. Emails between the two were included among the thousands recovered from a private email server used by the secretary of state between 2009 and 2013. Chelsea Clinton has described Deal as her best friend. Both Clintons attended Deal’s 2011 wedding.

Government cronyism, or the use of senior positions to help family friends, is not illegal. However, the practice appears to violate federal ethics rules that prohibit partiality, or creating the appearance of conflicts of interest.

Specifically, the Code of Federal Ethics states that government employees “shall act impartially and not give preferential treatment to any private organization or individual.” Pentagon ethics guidelines also call for avoiding actions that would create even the appearance of improper behavior or conflicts of interest…

Obama Regime Rehires Contractor Linked To Massive OPM Data Breach – Washington Examiner
.

.
The Obama administration has rehired an outside contractor that was partly responsible for what many think was the largest theft of personal information from the government in U.S. history, even as it continues to boast of several new steps it is taking to enhance federal cybersecurity.

The Office of Personnel Management is housing a new entity charged with ensuring the integrity of background checks for potential federal workers and contractors, and OPM has hired four contractors to help with this work.

One of them is Key Point Government Solutions, Inc., the company from which hackers gained access to an employee’s credentials to steal personal information from 22.1 million federal workers and contractors, an event that forced the OPM chief to step down…

Socialism At Work: 1 In 3 Patients Admitted To Venezuelan Hospitals Die – Daily Caller

The government of Venezuela reports that one out of three Venezuelans who are admitted to public hospitals died in 2015.

This is yet another story in a slew of bad news for Venezuela. Inflation has become so bad that the government ordered millions of pounds of provisions (in the form of the Venezuelan currency, the Bolivar) to be dropped by planeload across the nation. The government even put its own military in charge of the country’s food supplies.

As if things couldn’t get any worse, the Venezuelan people now have a 33 percent chance they will not leave the hospital alive.

There are 40 percent fewer operational hospital beds in the country since 2014, and the nation is experiencing a massive shortage of 85 percent of medicines. Some 30 percent of children in Venezuela suffer from malnutrition, according to News 24.

A four-year-old girl, suffering from a minor knee scrape, nearly died in a two-month-long saga that saw mistreatment, shortages of life-saving antibiotics and other medications, and hospital buildings that looked more like drug dens than places of healing.

For every 1,000 live births, Venezuela experiences 15 deaths, a rate more than double the U.S., which has just six deaths per 1,000 live births.

The news of Venezuela’s eminent downward spiral comes as a shock to those familiar with the nation…

Hillary Caught Using Child Actor At Pennsylvania Town Hall – Zero Hedge
.

.
At a Hillary Clinton town hall yesterday in Haverford, Pennsylvania, a 15 year old girl was supposedly “chosen at random” to ask a question of the former Secretary of State. But, the well-scripted performance raised some suspicion with a YouTuber named Spanglevision who decided to dig a little deeper. And, wouldn’t you know it, the “random” participant was none other than child actor, Brennan Leach, whose father just happens to be Pennsylvania democratic State Senator Daylin Leach. Oh, and in case it wasn’t obvious, Daylin supports Hillary for president… shocking.

So, here was the original question from Brennan:

Brennan:

“Hi Madam Secretary. I’m Brennan and I’m 15 years old. At my school, body image is a really big issue for girls my age. I see with my own eyes the damage Donald Trump does when he talks about women and how they look…

Pence On Media Bias In Presidential Race: ‘I Gotta Turn On The Television With A Stick’ – CNS

GOP vice presidential nominee Mike Pence told supporters at a campaign rally in Harrisonburg, Va., on Wednesday that the media is “doing half” of Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton’s work for her.

“The truth of the matter is this campaign’s been amazing to be a part of. I mean, it’s like two on one out there every day with the media doing half of Hillary Clinton’s work for her. You ever notice that?” Pence said one day after the vice presidential debate in Virginia.

“Sometimes I get up in the morning, I gotta turn on the television with a stick,” Pence said. “Just never know what’s gonna be there, but the amazing thing is even though the media’s out there doing half her work for her, it’s two on one, Donald Trump is still winning hearts and minds every day.”

Pence said the media has been so focused on criticizing GOP presidential nominee Donald Trump that they haven’t paid attention to what Hillary Clinton and former President Bill Clinton have been up to for that past three decades.

“The media’s so busy parsing every word Donald Trump’s said or tweeted in the last 30 minutes that it seems they haven’t had time to talk about what the Clintons have been up to for the last 30 years,” Pence said…

Florida Preps For First Major Hurricane Strike In 11 Years – Christian Science Monitor

After tearing its way through Haiti and Cuba on Wednesday, the category 3 hurricane Matthew is predicted to land close to Florida Thursday evening, becoming the first major hurricane to hit the state in 11 years.

The lull in major hurricanes is an anomaly for Florida, according to some scientists. The longest time it has previously gone without experiencing a hurricane was five years, between 1980 and 1984.

Governors in Florida, Georgia, South Carolina, and North Carolina have declared states of emergency. South Carolina Gov. Nikki Haley issued an evacuation order ahead of the storm Tuesday to give 1 million people ample time to leave the coast. The Florida governor also signaled possible evacuation orders ahead of the storm.

“Don’t take a chance. Leave before it’s too late,” Florida Gov. Rick Scott said, warning residents to be prepared to take a direct hit. “We have to be prepared to be hit by a catastrophic hurricane.”

The National Hurricane Center forecast for the path of hurricane Matthew is still in flux as of early Wednesday morning:

When a hurricane is forecast to take a track roughly parallel to a coastline, as Matthew is forecast to do from Florida through South Carolina, it becomes very difficult to estimate impacts this far in advance. For example, only a small deviation of the track to the left of the NHC forecast could bring the core of a major hurricane onshore, while a small deviation to the right could keep all of the hurricane-force winds offshore…

Hillary Clinton slammed the Supreme Court as “wrong on the Second Amendment” and called for reinstating the assault weapons ban during a small private fundraiser in New York last week, according to audio of her remarks obtained by the Washington Free Beacon.

While Clinton has previously supported an assault weapons ban, this is the first time since launching her campaign that she indicated that she would take on the Supreme Court over gun issues…

Democrats Accused Of Voter Fraud In Kankakee County, Illinois – Daily Journal

The Kankakee County State’s Attorney’s office says it is investigating possible voting fraud after the clerk’s office reported three complaints from people who said they were offered bribes for votes.

In a news release issued late Tuesday afternoon, Jamie Boyd, the state’s attorney, also said “several” vote-by-mail applications seem to have come from people living outside of Kankakee County.

“This unprecedented action was taken in response to reports of individuals from Chicago offering gifts to potential voters in exchange for a vote for Kate Cloonen, Hillary Clinton and others,” Boyd said in the news release. “Our office takes seriously the obligation to protect the rights of citizens to vote for the candidate of their choice, and to do so without undue influence from special interest groups.

“The investigation will also focus on the authenticity of vote by mail requests. Several applications have been filed with the election authority that appear to be fraudulently executed.”

Late last week, Kankakee County Clerk Bruce Clark said potential voters were being brought to the clerk’s office to vote early.

“Whoever it is should not be doing this,” he said. “People should be allowed to come in here and vote without being harassed.”

The incumbent in the state rep’s race, Democrat Kate Cloonen, is in a highly-contested race against local attorney Lindsay Parkhurst, a Republican.

“These reports of voter fraud in Kankakee are incredibly disturbing,” Pankhurst said…

Obama Blames Syrian Civil War On… Wait For It… Global Warming – Daily Caller

President Barack Obama said global warming “contributed” to the Syrian civil war, shifting at least some of the blame for the deadly conflict from the repressive Assad regime to people driving gas-guzzling SUVs.

“There’s already some really interesting work – not definitive, but powerful – showing that the droughts that happened in Syria contributed to the unrest and the Syrian civil war,” Obama said during the South By South Lawn event at the White House Monday.

Obama made the remarks alongside actor Leonardo DiCaprio, who was there to debut his global warming film “Before the Flood.” Obama’s tying global warming into Syria is part of his administration’s effort to make it a national security issue…

More Crooked Democrats: Police Raid Offices Of Indiana Voter Registration Project In Voter Fraud Case – Gateway Pundit

Indiana police raided the offices of the Indiana Voter Registration Project in north Indianapolis on Tuesday in a growing voter fraud case.

It is not clear who established or funded the Indiana Voter Registration Project. However, the group released a statement through spokeswoman Christy Setzer, whose PR firm’s website says she has worked as a Democratic strategist for the presidential campaigns of Al Gore, Howard Dean and Chris Dodd.

USA Today reported:

Indiana State Police investigators on Tuesday searched a voter registration agency on Indianapolis’ north side as they look into a voter fraud case that spans nine counties.

The investigation began in late August when police learned of the filing of fraudulent voter registration forms in Marion and Hendricks counties.

The investigation has expanded from Marion and Hendricks counties to include Allen, Delaware, Hamilton, Hancock, Johnson, Lake and Madison counties, according to a statement from State Police.

Police said the growing number of involved counties leads investigators to believe that the number of fraudulent records might be in the hundreds.

The possible fraudulent information is a combination of fake names, addresses and dates of birth with real information.

As part of the expanded investigation, State Police detectives served a search warrant for the business offices of the Indiana Voter Registration Project in the 2400 block of North Meridian Street…

Internal White House Intel Corroborates Details Of Hillary’s Proposed Drone Strike On Julian Assange – True Pundit
.

An official White House photograph taken in 2010 corroborates finite details divulged by State Department insiders who revealed then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton proposed a military drone strike on Julian Assange to stop the Wikileaks founder’s looming release of 250,000 confidential U.S. intelligence cables.

The photograph, obtained by True Pundit, depicts Clinton and President Barack Obama in the White House Situation Room with National Security Council members on November 23, 2010, the same day State Department sources said Clinton asked top aides in a morning staff meeting if it was possible to target Assange with a drone strike to quash CableGate. From the original story published Sunday:

Clinton’s State Department was getting pressure from President Obama and his White House inner circle, as well as heads of state internationally, to try and cutoff Assange’s delivery of the cables and if that effort failed, then to forge a strategy to minimize the administration’s public embarrassment over the contents of the cables…

Nearly One-Third Of Americans Boycotting NFL Because Of BLM Protests – Washington Times

Nearly one-third of American adults say they are less likely to watch a National Football League game because of the growing number of Black Lives Matter protests that are happening by players on the field, a Rasmussen poll found.

Thirty-two percent polled online and by telephone said they’re willing to skip NFL games this year because of player protests over racial issues, the pollster said on Tuesday. Only 13 percent said they were more likely to watch the games because of the protests, and 52 percent said the protests had no impact on their viewing decisions.

Twenty-eight percent of African Americans said they were more likely to tune-into an NFL game because of the protests, compared to 8 percent of whites and 16 percent of other Americans, the poll found.

Whites were twice as likely as blacks to say they are less likely to watch this year.

Colin Kaepernick, the San Francisco 49ers quarterback, has inspired African American NFL players across the country to join him in protesting racial injustice in the U.S. by taking a knee or raising a power fist during the national anthem.

President Barack Obama has defended Mr. Kaepernick’s protest, which began in August’s pre-season, saying even though some Americans may disagree, Mr. Kaepernick’s right to to protest is “what freedom means in this country,” so long as its within the law.

The NFL, which has refused to do anything about the protests, has had its ratings collapse this season. Although some have blamed blow-out contests, and others point to the presidential election, some see the protests and #boycottNFL online campaigns as the root of the ratings free-fall…

‘Flawless’ Victory: Mike Pence Dominates Tim Kaine In Vice Presidential Debate – Breitbart

Indiana Gov. Mike Pence, the GOP’s vice presidential nominee, dominated his Democratic counterpart Sen. Tim Kaine (D-VA) in the only debate between the two before the election at Longwood University.

“Gov. Pence was flawless,” Jason Miller, the senior communications adviser to Pence’s running mate Donald J. Trump, told Breitbart News. “Tonight showed the strength of the Trump-Pence ticket and that our ideas are better for America. And ultimately, it showed the good judgment Donald Trump has in selecting such a strong number two in Gov. Pence.”

Pence’s win came on a night where the Democratic presidential ticket of Hillary Rodham Clinton and Kaine were set back significantly after a smooth past week since the first of three Trump-Clinton debates at Hofstra University last Monday…

Clinton Foundation Hacked By Guccifer 2.0; Info Revealed Is Damning – Politistick

At 3 am Eastern on Tuesday morning, many awaited in eager anticipation for an announcement by Wikileaks founder Julian Assange. The speculation was that it Assange would break some massive news about Hillary Clinton that would take down her campaign in an October Surprise. Instead, it was simply an announcement regarding the 10 year anniversary of Wikileaks.

The Hillary Clinton campaign likely breathed a sigh of relief, that is until Tuesday afternoon when another world-renowned hacker, Guccifer 2.0, released a massive number of files that he acquired after hacking into the server for the Clinton Foundation.

Among the information gleaned by Guccifer 2.0 is a list of file folders with one that should concern every American, regardless of political party. There is a ‘Pay to Play’ folder, the very thing that Hillary Clinton and her campaign have denied as they have been accused of blurring the lines between the Clinton Foundation and the State Department and using the foundation to give special treatment in the government to its donors. Notice, as well, the number of folders referencing Democrats and Democrat Party.

A file which appears to include Pay to Play information from Hillary Clinton’s foundation was also shared by Guccifer 2.0. Companies are listed with the amount of TARP dollars they received from the federal government and a Democrat or the Democrat Congressional Campaign Committee (DCCC) is also listed with the amount they received from these companies.

Guccifer 2.0 said hacking into the server was not difficult as there weren’t many security measures to prevent outside access to the server…

Police Group Accuses CNN Of Deceptive Edit Of Charlotte Shooting – Fox News
.

A law enforcement group is charging CNN edited video of the racially charged police shooting of a Charlotte, N.C., man to make officers look bad.

Blue Lives Matter, an organization comprised of active or retired law enforcement officers, claims the cable news network edited video of the Sept. 20 fatal shooting of Keith Scott to cut out police ordering him to “drop the gun,” fueling claims Scott, a black man, was unarmed when he was shot by Officer Brentley Vinson. Although Vinson is black, the incident was the latest police shooting around the nation to spur violent protests and rioting.

“The editing was clearly intended to give viewers the impression that Scott wasn’t armed. By intentionally excluding information to promote the false narrative that the officer-involved shooting of Keith Scott was unjustified, CNN directly contributed towards inciting violence and destruction in the Charlotte riots,” Blue Lives Matter said in a statement…

DOJ Drops Charges Against Arms Dealer Who “Threatened To Expose” Hillary Arming Islamic Extremists – Zero Hedge

In what would under other circumstances likely be a major media spectacle, Politico reported that the Obama administration is moving to dismiss charges against an arms dealer whom it had accused of selling weapons destined for Libyan rebels and who had threatened to expose Hillary Clinton’s talks about arming anti-Qaddafi rebels.

According to a motion filed in federal court in Phoenix, the DOJ on Monday filed a motion to drop the case against the arms dealer, an American named Marc Turi. One potential reason for the surprising move is that as Politico writes, the deal averts a trial that threatened to cast additional scrutiny on Hillary Clinton’s private emails as Secretary of State, and to expose reported Central Intelligence Agency attempts to arm rebels fighting Libyan leader Moammar Qadhafi.

Turi was indicted in 2014 on four felony counts: two of arms dealing in violation of the Arms Export Control Act and two of lying to the State Department in official applications…

Nutburger Gary Johnson: I Can’t Start Wars With Places If I Can’t Find Them On A Map – Politico

Libertarian presidential candidate Gary Johnson on Tuesday defended his lack of knowledge of world affairs, suggesting on MSNBC that foreign policy expertise, or even an understanding of where international leaders are from, is what leads to military conflict.

“You know what? The fact that somebody can dot the i’s and cross the t’s on a foreign leader’s geographic location then allows them to put our military in harm’s way,” Johnson told MSNBC’s Andrea Mitchell.

The former New Mexico governor has been widely panned for a pair of foreign policy gaffes that have weighed down his long-shot candidacy. First, Johnson responded to a question on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” about the ongoing civil war in Syria by asking his questioner, “What is Aleppo?”…
