Bill Clinton reportedly had an affair with a prostitute in Little Rock, Arkansas. Her name is Bobbie Ann Williams, and she – along with her family – have passed multiple lie-dictator tests when asked if Clinton is the father of her illegitimate son Danny.
Buddy Young, a former Arkansas State Trooper, has admitted that in 1983, he drove Clinton and Bobbie to her mother’s home near Hot Springs for an extended, intimate visit while the mother was out-of-town. Both were paid $400 each, plus a $50 tip.
(Gateway Pundit) CNN says it is “completely uncomfortable” with hacked emails showing former contributor and interim DNC chair Donna Brazile sharing questions with the Clinton campaign before a debate and a town hall during the Democratic primary, and has accepted her resignation.
Hacked emails posted by WikiLeaks show Brazile, whose CNN contract was suspended when she became interim DNC chair over the summer, sharing with the Clinton campaign a question that would be posed to Hillary Clinton before the March CNN Democratic debate in Flint, and sharing with the campaign a possible question prior to a CNN town hall also in March.
Trump called it: (Fox News) Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump saw this coming from a mile away, fingering Weiner as a potential national security threat all the way back in August of 2015. “It came out that Huma Abedin knows all about Hillary’s private illegal emails,” Trump wrote on Twitter. “Huma’s PR husband, Anthony Weiner, will tell the world.”Fox News cited a law enforcement source: "The electronic device shared by Hillary Clinton aide Huma Abedin and husband Anthony Weiner on which the FBI found more Clinton emails was a laptop and it contained tens-of-thousands of emails, a senior law enforcement official told Fox News on Saturday."

Currently, CREST can only be accessed through computer terminals at the National Archives in College Park, MD. This geographic restriction on availability has been a source of frustration and bafflement to researchers ever since the digital collection was established in 2000.
Keep in mind that the Saudis support Al Qaeda's efforts in Syria, which are at cross purposes with ISIS in terms of "who should rule". In that they are allied with Iran, who agrees that ISIS shouldn't be in charge. The only difference is that Iran wants to fill that vacuum. If it sounds confusing, it can be.
In a speech in Ankara on 27 October, Turkish President Erdogan said he informed the US President about Turkey’s military plans for northern Syria. Turkey intends to defeat Islamic State fighters controlling al Bab. Then its forces will attack Manbij to drive out the Syrian Kurds. After that, they will participate in the fight to capture Raqqa, the Islamic State capital.
Turkish Defense Minister Fikri Isik said that Turkey had asked the US not to allow the Syrian Kurdish People’s Protection Units (YPG) to enter Raqqa because it is not a Kurdish town. He said Turkey was ready to provide the necessary military support to take over the town.
If you wonder who in the US Government helped create this goat rodeo, you need look no further than Hillary Clinton, she of the seizures, the weak health and addled (but power hungry) mind. Clinton was the architect of Barack's foreign policy in the Middle East. (pictured right, before her handlers had her skin stretched and her hair washed so that she would look less like an unwashed old hag)Russia - It's a place where the Russians can actually come off looking like the good guys, human rights issues notwithstanding. So they tossed their cracker in the soup.
"The colossal scale of destruction requires the drawing up of a long-term and comprehensive program, if you like a Marshall plan of sorts, to revive this region torn by wars and conflicts. And Russia is, of course, ready to take an active part in such joint work," Putin said.
It's clear that Hillary may more fairly represent the "will of the nation" when you consider what Mitt Romney said in the last go-round. 47% of America pays no federal taxes and gets free stuff - how do you run against that?
...the Bank For International Settlements (BIS) registered a $1.8 billion transfer from the Clinton Foundation (CF) to the Qatar Central Bank (QCB) through the “facilitation/abetment” of JP Morgan Chase & Company (JPM).

As an aside: Last week, two red-dot Indians named Patel - men in their 30's - from San Jose, CA drowned in Fossil Creek near the basin pictured in the video above. Neither could swim. One went into deep water and the other jumped in to 'save him'. I'll reserve comments except to say that you shouldn't go into unfamiliar water if you can't swim. It inevitably leads to a "Darwin Award" - now back to the commentary -Rocks in the canyon vary in age from the Precambrian through the Cenozoic (from shells and mollusks to mammals) so the range in fossils takes you through the age of the dinosaur into the realm of mammoths and sabertooth tigers. It's a fun place to just hang even if you're not hunting for fossils and silver. I have the Ruger Super Redhawk Alaskan, just in case. I can swim so will not bring my water wings.

Dr. McCabe’s husband, Andrew McCabe, oversaw the FBI’s field office in Washington, D.C., which was providing the manpower to investigate Mrs. Clinton’s secret email server at the time of the donations. Mr. McCabe would later be promoted to be deputy FBI director, serving under Director James Comey, The Wall Street Journal reported.“The fact that this was allowed to occur shows either outright negligent behavior by the FBI or a level of corruption that is beyond belief,” said Jason Miller, a spokesman for Donald Trump.
Doublethink - from 1984: In the case of workers at the Records Department in the Ministry of Truth (think of MSNBC and you're there), doublethink means being able to falsify public records, and then believe in the new history that they themselves have just rewritten. The Ministry's name is itself an example of doublethink: the Ministry of Truth is really concerned with lies. The other ministries are similarly named: the Ministry of Peace is concerned with war, the Ministry of Love is concerned with torture, and the Ministry of Plenty is concerned with starvation. The three slogans of the Party – War is Peace, Freedom is Slavery, and Ignorance is Strength – are also examples.
The United States government – U.S. taxpayers – have $770 million to spend on mosque renovation but the United States Marine Corps has about two-thirds of their fighter jets grounded because the Marine Corps doesn’t have money for parts.
Reenlistment Bonuses for Vets --- Not so fast!The program that funds rebuilding mosques funnels money through the U.S. State Department’s USAID program. You’ve probably never heard about it because if flies under the radar. After all, it’s only $1 billion. It’s $1 billion in play money for Barack Obama, Hillary Clinton, and John Kerry to practice their “Smart Diplomacy.”
(Fox News) The Pentagon is seeking to recover decade-old reenlistment bonuses paid to thousands of California Army National Guard soldiers to go fight in Iraq and Afghanistan, the Los Angeles Times reported Saturday.
The paper reported that nearly 10,000 soldiers, many of whom risked their lives during multiple combat tours, have been ordered to repay the cash bonuses after audits revealed widespread overpayments by California Guard officials under pressure to meet enlistment targets at the height of the wars 10 years ago.
But soldiers say the military is reneging on old agreements and imposing severe financial hardship on those whose only mistake was to accept the bonuses, which amounted to $15,000 or more.
The Army asked wounded Iraq veteran and former Army captain Christopher Van Meter, 42, to repay a $25,000 reenlistment bonus it said he was ineligible to receive.
