State Department Found Almost 600 Security Violations in Hillary’s Emails

Via The Daily Caller

State Department investigators probing Hillary Clinton’s use of a private email server as secretary of state discovered nearly 600 security incidents that violated agency policy, according to a report the Daily Caller News Foundation obtained.

The investigation, conducted by the State Department’s Bureau of Diplomatic Security, found 38 individuals were culpable for 91 security violations. Another 497 violations were found, but no individuals were found culpable in those incidents.

The investigation concluded Sept. 6, and the report was issued Sept. 13.

The investigation sought to determine if the exchange of emails on Clinton’s server “represented failure to properly safeguard classified information” and whether any individuals at State were culpable for any of the failures.

Clinton exchanged more than 60,000 emails on a private email account hosted on a server that she kept at her residence in New York. She emailed frequently with longtime aides Huma Abedin, Cheryl Mills, Jake Sullivan, and an outside adviser, Sidney Blumenthal.

The FBI investigated whether Clinton mishandled classified information by using the server. Former FBI Director James Comey announced July 5, 2016, that he would not be recommending charges against Clinton over the server, though he did say she was “extremely careless” in using an off-the-books email system.

 

“Extremely careless”. The entire crime was done on purpose.

Hillary’s IT specialist Paul Combetta, went on Reddit requesting technical advice on how to strip a “VIP (VERY VIP)” email address from archives stored on a server he has “full access to“. He posed as ‘Stonetear’ on the site, and the ‘VIP’ was indeed Hillary. Combetta used the computer program “Bleachbit” to destroy Clinton’s records, despite an order from Congress to preserve them, and Samuelson also destroyed Clinton’s emails.

IT Specialist Paul Pagliano created Hillary’s email server over a series of months while working in a room on K Street in D.C.  After he constructed the server, Pagliano stated that he “rented a minivan and drove to Chappaqua New York to install the email server in the Clinton residence.”

The FBI had all this information and never divulged it during the hearings. Obama’s DOJ ordered them not to charge Hillary with “gross negligence” by mishandling classified information.

Hillary deliberately used an illegal, unsecure server to store and transmit classified information, tampered with evidence, deleted incriminating emails, and lied before Congress. It’s right in front of everyone’s face.  She knew that it was a national security violation, but did it anyway.

All kinds of federal laws were broken.

Comey gave immunity to five Clinton State Department aides and IT experts.  Those aides include Cheryl Mills, Clinton’s former chief of staff, along with two other State Department staffers, John Bentel and Heather Samuelson, Bryan Pagliano, Clinton’s former IT aide, and Paul Combetta, an employee at Platte River networks, the firm hired to manage her server after she left the State Department.

Attorney General Loretta Lynch met with Bill Clinton on board her private jet in what was clearly a conflict of interest and a conversation on whether or not the DOJ would indict Hillary for her crimes.

After that, the fix was in.

By the way: Obama knew about her unsecure email and engaged in correspondence. And he lied about it. If Clinton had been charged, Obama’s culpable involvement would have been blatant.

Lynch obstructed justice  and Comey abetted the entire thing.  They belong in jail right along with Hillary.

I was an intelligence analyst for the bulk of my Army career. If I had done a fraction of what this scrunt has gotten away with, I’d have been Court Martialed and thrown under Leavenworth.

Hillary’s corruption with the Clinton Foundation is another crime for which she’s yet to be punished.

One set of rules for Dems, another set of rules for everyone else.

Andrew Klavan on the Sanctimonious Cultural Classes and Their Love for Chinese Government Thugs

Via The Daily Wire

You can say this for the Chinese government: they may be a gang of murderous, oppressive, lying thugs, but they’ve done American culture a big favor. They’ve exposed our sanctimonious cultural classes for the phonies they are.

Let’s start with Blizzard Entertainment, the video game company that produced Diablo. Diablo was a great game, an immersive story of a knight facing the supernatural powers of darkness. I was so amazed by its beauty and realism that I played it obsessively, killing off hordes of demons until I broke my computer mouse.

……The company suspended professional gamer Chung Ng Wai from competition for a year after he called for Hong Kong’s liberation in a post-game interview. After being shamed by the fans, they cut his punishment to six months — a move so cynical and empty of moral understanding it made the situation even worse.

Because: Punish him for what? For standing up for the heroes of the Hong Kong streets who are risking all in protests against the monsters of Beijing?

And make no mistake about it: the Chinese are a government of monsters. There are no shades of gray here. Their Maoist forefathers slaughtered eight New York Cities worth of individuals in the name of their foul philosophy. As late as 2015, they were tying women down to sterilize them and forcibly abort their children. They disappear dissenters and then harvest their organs for transplant — I know, it sounds like one of those ’80s medical thrillers, but it’s true. They’ve got religious minorities in “re-education camps,” a phrase that makes my gorge rise even when I just write it down.

……And how about the NBA? Apologizing for a tweet supporting the Hong Kong freedom fighters. Sending their top athletes out to kowtow to the Chinese tyrants. Tossing out fans who brought pro-freedom signs and t-shirts to games. What about the NFL, who crawled to their Chinese overlords in 2004 after an image of the protesters in Tienanmen Square accidentally found its way into a celebration of liberty in the Super Bowl half-time show?

They tell stories too, don’t they? Stories about the evil American police. Stories about how courageous they are to kneel during the National Anthem, to disrespect the flag of the United States — a protest without consequence, without danger, because they live in the United States where they’re free. And yet for a few dollars more, they bend the knee to real-life present day slave masters.

……And what about the sportscasters at ESPN, who couldn’t keep their fat, stupid mouths shut about how nasty George W. Bush was? Who tried to make heroes out of the ballplayers disrespecting our flag. But now, when it comes time to speak up for real heroes fighting real bad guys, they go silent at the orders of their parent company Disney.

……But from now on, when they speak to us of politics and culture — when they step out of their professional zone and preach to us about how to live and who to vote for — we have to remember this:

They are hollow men. Straw men. A bunch of phonies.

 

 

As Tucker Carlson points out: “The people that benefited most from this country cared about it the least. They were also the quickest to sell it out to foreign powers for profit. That’s obvious now thanks to people like Lebron James.”

They’ll disrespect the anthem, the flag, the country and the military because ‘oppression’,  but when it comes to speaking out against real oppression by Islamofascist pigs who slaughter Christians, Jews, and women, or the Chinese authoritarian thugs who oppress free speech and religion, and enslave millions in labor camps, not a goddamned peep out of any of them.

Congress Introduces Bill to Support Hong Kong Sovereignty

Source: https://www.congress.gov/bill/116th-congress/house-bill/3289

Summary: H.R.3289 — 116th Congress (2019-2020)All Information (Except Text)

There is one summary for H.R.3289. Bill summaries are authored by CRS.

Shown Here:
Introduced in House (06/13/2019)

Hong Kong Human Rights and Democracy Act of 2019

This bill directs various departments to assess whether political developments in Hong Kong justify changing Hong Kong’s unique treatment under U.S. law.

Hong Kong is part of China but has a largely separate legal and economic system.

The Department of State shall report annually to Congress as to whether Hong Kong is sufficiently autonomous from China to justify its unique treatment. The report shall assess whether China has eroded Hong Kong’s civil liberties and rule of law as protected by Hong Kong’s Basic Law.

The Department of Commerce shall report annually to Congress on China’s efforts to use Hong Kong to evade U.S. export controls and sanctions.

The President shall provide Congress an assessment as to whether to withdraw from the U.S.-Hong Kong extradition treaty, and what actions are needed to protect U.S. citizens and national security interests, if Hong Kong (1) amends its laws to allow the rendition of individuals to countries that lack defendants’ rights protections, or (2) passes a national security law.

The State Department shall allow otherwise qualified Hong Kong residents to obtain visas to work or study in the United States, even if the applicant had been arrested for participating in certain nonviolent protests supporting human rights or the rule of law.

The President shall report to Congress a list of individuals responsible for abducting and torturing people for exercising internationally recognized human rights in Hong Kong. The bill bars such individuals from entering the United States and imposes sanctions on them.

 

Resolutions are meaningless unless you put teeth in it.  The people in Hong Kong are raising hell again over Beijing’s tyrannical approach to government rule. Throw total support behind the pro-democracy movement and stop with China.

Propping up a communist totalitarian regime with capitalist dollars is suicidal. China is an enemy and should be treated as such instead of having the privilege of being a trading partner.  Doing business with a communist country will not transform it into a freedom-nurturing society. There will come a day when all of the money we pour into China will come back to bite us in the ass. You can bet on it.

Former Ambassador to Ukraine Targeted Conservatives on ‘Watch List’

 

More from Judicial Watch:

Judicial Watch is investigating if prominent conservative figures, journalists and persons with ties to President Donald Trump were unlawfully monitored by the State Department in Ukraine at the request of ousted U.S. Ambassador Marie Yovanovitch, an Obama appointee. Yovanovitch testified “in secret” to the House impeachment inquiry against Trump on Friday, October 11, 2019. Her “secret” testimony was leaked to the New York Times during the hearing.

Judicial Watch has obtained information indicating Yovanovitch may have violated laws and government regulations by ordering subordinates to target certain U.S. persons using State Department resources. Yovanovitch reportedly ordered monitoring keyed to the following search terms: Biden, Giuliani, Soros and Yovanovitch.  Judicial Watch has filed a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request with the State Department and will continue gathering facts from government sources.

Prior to being recalled as ambassador to Ukraine in the spring Yovanovitch reportedly created a list of individuals who were to be monitored via social media and other means.  Ukraine embassy staff made the request to the Washington D.C. headquarters office of the department’s Bureau of European and Eurasian Affairs. After several days, Yovanovitch’s staff was informed that the request was illegal and the monitoring either ceased or was concealed via the State Department Global Engagement Center, which has looser restrictions on collecting information.

“This is not an obscure rule, everyone in public diplomacy or public affairs knows they can’t make lists and monitor U.S. citizens unless there is a major national security reason,” according to a senior State Department official. If the illicit operation occurred, it seems to indicate a clear political bias against the president and his supporters. Yovanovitch, a career diplomat who has also led American embassies in Kyrgyzstan and Armenia, was appointed ambassador to Ukraine by Obama in 2016. She was recalled by the State Department in May and remains a State Department employee in Washington D.C.

In the public records request to the State Department Judicial Watch asks for any and all records regarding, concerning, or related to the monitoring of any U.S.-based journalist, reporter, or media commentator by any employee or office of the Department of State between January 1, 2019 and the present. That includes all records pertaining to the scope of the monitoring to be conducted and individuals subject to it as well as records documenting the information collected pursuant to the monitoring. The FOIA request also asks for all records of communication between any official, employee or representative of the State Department and any other individual or entity.

 

Obama did the same thing. When Sharyl Attkisson and James Rosen published damaging information about Benghazi and Fast and Furious, he had their emails, computers, and phones hacked and engaged in widespread spying against citizens who wouldn’t goose step to his agenda.

She probably didn’t think of doing this on her own. She had some prompting from operatives in the Dem party.

DemRat Elijah Cummings Croaks at 68

Via WJLA 

Congressman Elijah E. Cummings (MD-07) died early Thursday morning due to complications concerning longstanding health challenges, according to a statement from his office.

Rep. Cummings passed away at Johns Hopkins Hospital at approximately 2:45 a.m. He served in the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform, Transportation and Infrastructure and was one of the most recognized members of the Maryland delegation. He was first elected to the House in 1996.

 

Cummings was a corruptocrat who received illicit emails from IRS corruptocrat Lois Lerner regarding information about True The Vote, an anti-voter fraud organization; just one of the groups Lerner targeted.

During the emotional testimony on Hillary’s and Obama’s depraved indifference in Benghazi, he remarked: ‘Death is part of life’.  How profound. How mindless.

He was also one of the members listed on the Socialist Party Caucus.

 

More, from Discover the Networks:

  • Supported the now-defunct community organization ACORN
  • Mischaracterized the voter-integrty group True The Vote as an organization dedicated to preventing nonwhite minorities from voting in political elections
  • Views anti-police demonstrators as “the civil-rights voice of this generation”
  • Enthusiastic supporter of the Council on American-Islamic Relations

To maximize the effectiveness of his re-election campaigns and political initiatives, Cummings has used the services of Robert Creamer‘s Strategic Consulting Group.

 

Note: Robert Creamer is a radical communist and ex-con who helped write the blueprint for the disastrous Obamacare, and tried to rig the 2016 election for Hillary Clinton.

 

On January 27, 2010, Cummings was one of 54 Members of Congress who signed a letter calling on  Barack Obama to apply diplomatic pressure to end Israel’s blockade of Gaza—a blockade which had been imposed in 2007 to prevent the region’s Hamas-led government from importing weaponry, particularly from Iran and Syria.

At a January 31, 2013 event in Baltimore, Cummings lauded the propagandistic CITGO-Venezuela Heating Oil Program through which, each winter, Hugo Chavez‘s communist Venezuelan government donated what Cummings described as “life-saving” heating oil “for so many [Americans] whose resources are already stretched thin in tough economic times.” At the same event, Venezuela’s Vice Minister of Foreign Affairs for North America praised the Chavez regime for demonstrating that its “commitment to the poor transcends all boundaries, ideological and geographical.”

Cummings served as the ranking Democrat on the select House committee that was empaneled in May 2014 to investigate the Islamic terrorist attacks that had killed four Americans at a U.S. diplomatic facility and a nearby CIA annex in Benghazi, Libya on September 11, 2012. In May 2015, Cummings denounced the entire investigation as a Republican-led “political charade” and “partisan attack” that sought only to harm the potential presidential candidacy of former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton.  Mrs. Clinton’s willful and repeated failure to provide adequate security for the Benghazi facility—and her many subsequent lies about the nature and causes of the deadly events of 9/11/12—had drawn harsh criticism from Republicans.

In April 2015, when the city of Baltimore was under curfew following nights of riots and destruction in response to the recent death of a local black criminal named Freddie Gray while he was in police custody, Cummings declared that most of the protesters were peaceful, and that their battle against police racism and brutality made them “without a doubt the civil-rights voice of this generation.” “America needs to wake up, big time,” he added.

 

Baltimore was part of Cummings’ 7th District and has spiraled into an abyss of crime and chaos.

 

When the Daily Caller in February 2018 contacted Cummings and a number of his fellow Congressional Black Caucus members to ask if they would be willing to publicly denounce the notorious Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan, Cummings was one of 20 who declined not only to denounce him, but also to issue any comment at all regarding his infamous anti-Semitic, anti-white rhetoric.

Cummings is an enthusiastic supporter of the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) and its supporters, whom he praised in October 2011 for their “efforts to establish positive relationships and eliminate fear, mistrust, discrimination and violence.”

 

Along with the rest of the Dem cabal, Cummings broke the law, shredded the Constitution, and was a detriment to our Republic.

Cummings was a racist, leftist shitbag who did as much damage as he could throughout his all-too-lengthy career. Thanks to the retards to keep re-electing vermin like Cummings, their damage ends when they finally die.
