FBI Now Investigating Hillary Clinton for Using State Department to Benefit Clinton Foundation?

In a new video at Fox News, Judge Andrew Napolitano suggests that the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) has begun a new investigation of Hillary Clinton, in addition to the ongoing investigation of if she as secretary of state in the Obama administration failed to safeguard United States government secrets. This new investigation centers on whether Clinton illegally made decisions in the State Department “to favor her husband’s foundation or her husband’s speaking gigs.”

Hillary's Africa Genocide Problem


Hillary might have some explaining to do to her base, with the latest batch of emails released from her days as Secretary of State. Her supporters in the Democratic Party are particularly attuned to minority issues and the social and economic struggles of those in developing countries. Additionally, nearly two-thirds of African-American voters went Democrat in the last election, a demographic the party has come to rely on over the years.

Imagine how damaging it should be to Hillary, then, if the mainstream media decides to pick up on probably the most explosive revelation from Hillary's latest server dump: She knew that the Libyan rebels her State Department backed were systematically committing genocide against black Africans in Libya and she did nothing about it!

They Just Can't Stop It: US Planning New Rebel Training Program For Syria

After innumerable failed schemes to train rebels to overthrow the Syrian government (and then training more rebels to take on the rebels they had previously trained who went over to ISIS and al-Qaeda), the US appears to be on the verge of launching yet another regime-change rebel training operation. According to the Wall Street Journal, the US is considering adopting a Turkey-originated plan to create an Arab fighting force in northern Syria to seal up the border and -- more importantly -- to counter the increasing influence and power of Kurdish People's Protection Units (YPG) in the area.

Once considered proxy US boots on the ground, the YPG has always been feared and loathed by the Turks. Now, they may become victims of their own success if the new plan is implemented. The new US-created group would be tasked with limiting Kurdish advances in northern Syria which would in turn appease the Turks, who have long been more worried about the Kurds than ISIS.

Afghan Positions Being Overrun By Taliban Due To Nonexistent “Ghost Soldiers” Used To Funnel Money To Corrupt Afghan Officials

As the Taliban probes the strength of Afghan forces, they are finding it an easier task than anticipated with a sizable number of the Afghan force constituted of “ghost soldiers.” As much as half of the soldiers in frontline positions are missing. We previously discussed the same problem of “ghost soldiers” in Iraq who are paid soldiers but only exist on paper as part of the widespread corruption of that country.

Now Afghanistan’s ghost army is facing real insurgents. Senior policy and army officials who have been pocketing the money for these nonexistent soldiers have left their country. Estimates put the percentage of nonexistent soldiers at 40 percent of the Afghan army, a shocking level of corruption even for Afghanistan. Not surprisingly, a ghost army did not fare well and the Taliban has now seized some 65 percent of Helmand province — Afghanistan’s largest. The provincial capital, Lashkar Gah, could fall.

A Tribute to Ron Paul’s Work for Austrian Economics and against the Federal Reserve


Over at FreedomWorks, Alex Bales’ new article “Profiles in Liberty: Dr. Ron Paul” presents a tribute to Ron Paul’s decades of work promoting Austrian economics and opposing the Federal Reserve.

A Tale of Two 'Terror Arsonists'

Our story today is about two very different "terror arsonists" who started fires on federally owned land. 

Although it is not certain in the first case whether the fire was lit on purpose, it ultimately burned more than 85,000 acres. The fire spread quickly, forcing many to evacuate their homes and destroying several cabins and out-buildings.

The cost of containing the fire has reached over $20 million. At the time of this publication, no one has been prosecuted for this destruction of federal land even though there are many suspects.

Judge Napolitano: Unconstitutional for Obama to Create a New Gun Transfer Crime

Judge Andrew Napolitano, interviewed by Gretchen Carlson on Fox News regarding President Barack Obama’s Tuesday gun control executive order announcement, explained that Obama is exceeding his presidential authority in creating a new crime related to gun transfers.

Expanding the definition of who is a gun dealer and who, therefore, can be prosecuted for the crime of transferring a gun without possessing a gun dealer license amounts to an unconstitutional unilateral creation of a crime by the executive branch, concludes Napolitano. Not only has Congress not approved the creation of this crime, Napolitano, who is a member of the Ron Paul Institute Advisory Board, advises that Congress has rejected creating the crime three times.

Delusional State Dept: 'We Brought Peace to Syria in 2015'

This gem from over the holidays may have passed under your radar screens. In the final State Department press conference for 2015, spokesperson John Kirby outlined the Department's "pivotal foreign policy moments of 2015." To be fair, some achievements warranted a mention by Foggy Bottom: re-establishing diplomatic relations with Cuba and finalizing the Iran deal are two bright spots in the otherwise foul witches brew called "US foreign policy 2015."

However in amongst taking credit for eliminating ebola and saving the Arctic from global warming, Spokesman Kirby let loose with this zinger -- an "achievement" called, "Bringing Peace, Security to Syria."

Killer Cops: Dialing 911 May Be Hazardous to Your Health

If you call the cops on someone whose behavior is worrying you, just know that your call may lead to the cops killing or seriously injuring that person.

Sitharath Sam learned this lesson Sunday after she called the police on her boyfriend of ten years. Sam is reported at KNXV-TV to have called the cops when her boyfriend Sean Mould, who had been heavily drinking, refused to leave her home. Sam also says Mould neither physically abused her nor threatened her. Tempe, Arizona police arrived at her home and shot Mould, who they say walked toward a cop while holding a pocket knife. Summing up the lesson from the tragic turn of events, Sam states, “I made that one mistake of calling for help; and now he’s dead, and I have to live with it.”
