Among the thousands of emails hacked from Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign chairman John Podesta and published by Wikileaks, one stated that officials from the government of Qatar gave the Clinton Foundation $1 million to celebrate Bill Clinton’s 65th birthday, funds which the foundation did not report to the State Department.
That would seemingly violate an ethics agreement Hillary Clinton signed when she became Secretary of State in 2009, in which she promised the foundation would notify the State Department’s ethics official if a new foreign government wanted to donate or “increase materially” its contributions.
Qatari officials pledged the money in 2011; in April 2012 Amitabh Desai, the Clinton Foundation’s foreign policy director, sent an email acknowledging the Qataris wanted to meet Bill Clinton “for five minutes” in New York City.
Clinton Foundation spokesman Brian Cookstra told Reuters that the $1 million gift was not a “material increase” in Qatar’s contributions. But Qatar had given between $1 million and $5 million to the Clinton Foundation in total, meaning the $1 million gift represented between a 20% to 100% increase.
The State Department told Reuters it had no record of the Qatar donation.
In 2016, the Foundation admitted that the Clinton Health Access Initiative had not published a list of its donors since 2010, although Hillary Clinton had promised she would offer an annual list.
As Reuters noted, Clinton Foundation officials acknowledged they sometimes evaded the agreement with the Obama administration, but blamed oversights. At least eight other countries in addition to Qatar gave new or increased funding to the foundation, most often for the Clinton Health Access Initiative.

Looks like Alyssa Milano is at it again!
Not long ago, she got into a very big Twitter argument with a bunch of people after accusing them of being warmongers.
In the tweets, she urged people to show “compassion” to the ISIS murderers. The twitterstorm began and never abated, and she definitely lost plenty of fans in that debacle.
She was also a big NeverTrumper girl who demanded that he release his tax returns.
It’s just too bad she wasn’t focused on her own taxes.
“Actress Alyssa Milano is broke as a joke and didn’t pay her taxes. And like a true liberal, she says it’s all someone else’s fault.
Milano made the stunning revelations in a $10 million lawsuit she filed in Los Angeles against her former business manager, Kenneth Hellie and his firm Hellie, Hoffer & Co.
Because of Helli’s alleged negligence, Milano says she failed to pay her income taxes for 2013 and 2014; didn’t make mortgage payments on her West Hollywood condo; lost millions on a failed home renovation project, and neglected to pay her employees’ taxes.
Milano alleges that her financial woes began with a ‘home improvement debacle.’ Milano says Hellie’s poor oversight of the remodeling job caused costs to spiral.
She ended up spending $5 million, though the home is worth no more than $3 million.
Milano says her employees also complained of late payments, and that Hellie failed to pay her employees’ taxes.
It’s shocking that Milano was not aware she didn’t pay her taxes, especially since she’s a 44-year-old mom of two who has been working since she was a child.
Moreover, her husband is an agent at Creative Artists Agency, one of the world’s top talent agencies. Between the two of them, someone should have asked, “Hey honey, did I pay my taxes this year?”
When it comes to acting, you’re told exactly what to say and when to say it. Lines in a script.
When it comes to thinking, well, let’s just say that most actors are actors for a reason.
Trump’s Attorney General Jeff Sessions just did something to support cops Obama never did. And Black Lives Matter is trembling in their boots.
This past year saw the highest number of law enforcement fatalities in five years. 21 cops were ambushed, shot and killed.
According to Jonathan Thompson, Executive Director and CEO of the National Sheriffs’ Association, there is one reason for this assault on law enforcement.
“Over the past few years’ law enforcement has been missing a key component to succeed in their jobs — federal government support.”
“While law enforcement is asked to do more and more with the ever-changing world of terrorism and public safety, the current administration has rolled-back much of the progress achieved through decades of effective policing through qualitative and quantitative resourcing. In return the nation’s crime rates have risen faster than at any time in our modern history.”
“While the mood toward law enforcement at the federal level has degraded we now see how out of touch this administration has been with the public. The dialogue between the administration and those charged with protecting us has grown outright hostile, making their jobs even more difficult and dangerous.”
Whoa… is that bad Obama. Thompson continued,
“Law enforcement is gratified by the support and with a new executive branch administration comes new promise. Law enforcement knows that we have a federal partner with the nomination of U.S. Sen. Jeff Sessions to be Attorney General of the United States.”
“The nation’s sheriffs and deputies know Sen. Sessions will support them because throughout his career he has been a crime fighter who seeks justice fairly.”
“Sessions supports solutions important to sheriffs and the law enforcement community. He understands the importance of the 1033 Program that provides excess, protective resources and equipment law enforcement needs to carry out their duty.”
“Sheriffs and deputies wake up each day knowing their lives may be in danger to keep our communities safe and protect the rule of law. They look forward to having an active ally in Attorney General Sessions to support them and do whatever necessary to make America safe.”
Wow. Imagine what a difference actually having an ally in the Federal government will make for law enforcement.

A convenience store owner from Spanaway, Washington has been sentenced to 8 years in prison after shooting a thug who stole from his establishment.
According to Q13 Fox, surveillance footage from the March 25, 2016 incident shows 31-year-old Min Sik Kim asking a group of men loitering outside his store to leave.
While he was outside, 21-year-old Jakeel Rashon Mason can be seen attempting to steal cigarettes from behind the counter of Kim’s store.
The footage shows Kim and Mason subsequently engaging in a fight. Ultimately, according to Q13 Fox, Kim can be seen shooting Mason in the back as he flees.
As King 5 reports, prior to this incident, Min Kim’s wife was shot in the stomach by another thug attempting to rob their store.
Kim subsequently pled guilty to second-degree murder.
During sentencing, Q13 Fox quotes him as stating, “I’m here to take responsibility for my actions in taking Mason’s life. I accept the consequences. I did not have the right to take his life.”
KOMO News reports that Judge John Hickman, keeping the earlier shooting of Kim’s wife in mind, acknowledged that the situation was tough but stated deadly force was not warranted on Kim’s part.

According to another KOMO News article, Mason previously made headlines when he was convicted of attempting to kidnap a 6-year-old girl, Savanna.
The outlet’s article on the kidnapping reads as follows:
“I looked both ways, and there was no one coming but then I went halfway across the street, two guys came out of nowhere,” Savanna says.
And what happened next is every parent’s nightmare.
“They grabbed me,” says Savanna.
But Savanna’s smart moves made her mom very proud.
“Run … and kick … and punch,” says the little girl.
“What’s the No. 1 thing you did that got everybody’s attention around the whole neighborhood?” asks Savanna’s mom, Amy Norman.
“I kicked him,” says Savanna. “I screamed loud.”
This 6-year-old knows “stranger danger” well.
“‘Cause mommy teaches me,” she says.
Amy saw the attempted kidnapping from her front window, and dashed out the door.
“My heart was pounding,” she says.

The Supreme Court released a decision today written by its newest Associate Justice Neil Gorsuch. Gorsuch, who is a staunch believer that the Constitution is a living document to be interpreted when it favors archaic, liberal-leaning laws, wrote that voter regulation was guaranteed in the emoluments clause:
“If we are to not wade into the waters of foreign influence, then we must protect our democracy at its very core. That means every single voter should have to prove who they are regardless of who they are or how much money they make. To be a United States citizen requires a contract of civility; one must be able to reasonably care for oneself, especially when it comes to the privilege of voting.”
The decision means that there will be a federal identification rule enforced by the FEC requiring all voters to show identification to vote. A new federal identification will be made available from the US Post Office that will be 100% tax-deductible. Fingerprint and DNA information will be required, but hey, if you want to vote, you’ll go all out, right?
Liberals will call the new rules racist, because apparently black people can’t get ID for some reason or they’ll say it’s to keep poor people from voting when now all they have to do is register and submit to testing. Jeff Derpinger, spokesman for the White House Office of Information and Propaganda, says the idea of a federal registry for people to volunteer for would be a welcome addition to President Trump’s plan to keep track of the poor and the indigent so he can help them out.
Justice Gorsuch was asked if his willingness to interpret the constitution would extend as far as the 1st and 2nd Amendments or Roe. He explained that while voting is a privilege for those who choose to use it, the inalienable right to self-defense and the right to speak your mind are absolute, though he would like to see a press more regulated to honesty. He recommended a department to oversee the flow of information as a consultant before the inauguration and the WHOIP was created, so he’s doing something right.
As for Roe, Gorsuch said that he didn’t think it would change while Justice Kennedy is alive but he looks forward to sharing the bench with Jeanine Pirro and overturning it someday. “All life is sacred,” Gorsuch said, “And really that’s all there is to it.”

How disgusting it is to appear in public and give such a shameful statement. Especially if you are an honorable member of the society. Just like Ruth Bader Ginsburg The Associate Justice of the Supreme Court.
Just read what this Liberal said about Trump:
“I SEE NO PURPOSE IN CONTINUING TO PERFORM MY PROFESSIONAL DUTIES WHEN I’M AWARE THAT EVERYTHING I SAY AND DO WILL MOST LIKELY BE SHOT DOWN BY A MAN SO IGNORANT HE PROBABLY REQUIRES GPS JUST TO FIND HIS BELLY BUTTON WHILE TAKING A SHOWER”- SAID JUSTICE RUTH BADER GINSBURG.
“THERE’S NO NEED TO BEAT AROUND THE BUSH, SO I’M JUST GOING TO GO AHEAD AND SAY IT – I WILL RESIGN MY POSITION AS A JUSTICE OF THE SUPREME COURT OF THE UNITED STATES IF THAT HAPPENS. I CANNOT IMAGINE PERFORMING MY DUTIES UNDER THE CONSTANT PRESSURE OF WAKING UP IN THE MORNING AND HAVING TO GO TO WORK KNOWING THAT EVERY RULING WE AS AN INSTITUTION MAKE WILL BE VIEWED THROUGH THE PRISM OF A TRUMP PRESIDENCY. I CAN TOLERATE THIS CHARADE OF A PRESIDENTIAL CAMPAIGN, BUT I COULD NOT LIVE WITH HIM AS PRESIDENT,” She added.
“I AM A WOMAN WHO HAS LIVED LONG ENOUGH, AND I AM PROUD TO SAY I’VE HAD A PROSPEROUS AND FULFILLED LIFE,” Again, she added.
“DONALD TRUMP IS A MAN WHO HAS ACCUMULATED HIS VAST WEALTH NOT BECAUSE OF HIS BUSINESS PROWESS, BUT BECAUSE OF THE FACT THAT MUCH OF IT WAS INHERITED FROM HIS FATHER AND GRANDFATHER. IN FACT, WHEN IT COMES TO MAKING IMPORTANT DECISIONS, I DON’T RECALL HIM EVER MAKING THE RIGHT ONE, AND THAT’S NOT THE TYPE OF MAN THAT SHOULD BE AT THE HEAD OF THIS COUNTRY.” – Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg finished awfully.
Last Autumn she was quite sure that Hillary would win and she would stay in her position. But, after Trump’s win, she is about to give her resignation and be succeeded by Trey Gowdy, the man who will do MUCH BETTER job than her.

Obama is furious that President Trump is wiping away his failed legacy.
It was more than evident today when crybaby, lying Obama posted on Facebook today, taking a cheap shot at President Trump, begging Republicans to reconsider repealing and replacing his failing ObamaCare. (See his post below)
This is the same fraud who said “If you like your doctor, you can keep your doctor. If you like your health plan, you can keep your health plan.” ObamaCare is failing and dead.
***We all know if Obama is saying something is “BAD,” then it really is “GOOD!” (See his post below)
He posted on Facebook saying, “I recognize that repealing and replacing the Affordable Care Act has become a core tenet of the Republican Party. Still, I hope that our senators, many of whom I know well, step back and measure what’s really at stake, and consider that the rationale for action, on health care or any other issue, must be something more than simply undoing something that Democrats did.”
He babbled on saying that the Republican health care bill will raise costs, reduce coverage, roll back protections, and ruin Medicaid as we know it.
Our politics are divided. They have been for a long time. And while I know that division makes it difficult to listen…
“The Senate bill, unveiled today, is not a health care bill. It’s a massive transfer of wealth from middle-class and poor families to the richest people in America,” Obama argued.
Obama said it hands enormous tax cuts to the rich and to the drug and insurance industries, paid for by cutting health care for everybody else.
“Simply put, if there’s a chance you might get sick, get old, or start a family – this bill will do you harm,” Obama said, adding there’s a “fundamental meanness” at the core of the legislation.
“To put the American people through that pain – while giving billionaires and corporations a massive tax cut in return – that’s tough to fathom,” Obama said. “But it’s what’s at stake right now. So it remains my fervent hope that we step back and try to deliver on what the American people need.”
President Trump is keeping good on his promises and he is going to fix the disastrous, failing healthcare.
I am very supportive of the Senate #HealthcareBill. Look forward to making it really special! Remember, ObamaCare is dead.

Democrats are bringing out the big guns, firing feckless lawsuits against Republicans in the hopes that something will stick.
Brad Podliska, a Major in the Air Force Reserve and former investigator on the Benghazi committee, is suing committee chair Trey Gowdy for wrongful termination and discrimination (via MSNBC).
According to the the suit, Podliska was fired because of his military service and for his refusal to investigate Hillary Clinton. He further alleges that Gowdy inappropriately defamed him publicly after the termination.
The Benghazi committee has denied the accusations and maintains that Podliska was terminated for the mishandling of classified information.
Speaking on NBC News, Trey Gowdy dismissed the allegations, claiming that Podliska was lying. The committee’s top investigator is a three-star general, which undermines any claims of discrimination.
However, Podliska’s claim that this was military discrimination is crucial to the case being heard. Podliska is relying on The Uniformed Services Employment and Reemployment Rights Act to claim standing for the case.
Normally, House staffers are prevented from suing their employer to protect classified information. Claiming military discrimination is Podliska’s only avenue to court. [Please VOTE by tapping YES or NO below!!]
Hillary Clinton is, of course, central to the lawsuit, and possibly behind the spurious court case. Podliska claims that he was mistreated because he was not willing to advance a line of investigation implicating Hillary Clinton, who was Secretary of State during the Benghazi assault.
The entire lawsuit stinks to high heaven of a distraction campaign orchestrated by the Democrats. Podliska could not prevent the Benghazi committee from investigating Clinton from the inside, so he is hoping to derail the committee from the outside. He is also demanding his former job back.
The lawsuit seems to have gone out of its way to target Trey Gowdy, who is a rising star in the Republican Party.
Do you think this is just a frivolous lawsuit? Please share the story on Facebook and tell us what you think because we want to hear YOUR voice!
The entire purpose of the lawsuit is to defame Trey Gowdy while insinuating that the Benghazi investigation is an unfair witch hunt designed to attack Hillary Clinton. We will not be fooled.

Donald Trump just broke the whole damn case wide open. He has forced Comey to tell the truth and it is amazing what he said in this video below. The entire video is amazing, but ou can see the shocking thing he said about Comey and Mueller at 1-minute mark into the video below.
President Trump called the investigation into allegations of Russia collusion and his alleged obstruction of justice “ridiculous.” He said that special counsel Robert Mueller’s friendship with Comey is “bothersome” and that it needs to be addressed.
He then aimed this warning shot at Robert Mueller:
“ROBERT MUELLER IS AN HONORABLE MAN AND HOPEFULLY HE’LL COME UP WITH AN HONORABLE CONCLUSION,” TRUMP SAID.
He then criticized the team of attorneys’ that Mueller has brought on. Trump is right, too. Take a look at the picture of the three amigos below.

This is not good. Please help Trump get his message out. We cannot let the Democrats stack everything against our President. He is working his butt off and all the Democrats want to do is take him down for it. It’s disgusting and wrong.
