The Gateway Pundit
The State Department revealed Benghazi related material was found in searches of the approximately 14,900 deleted Hillary Clinton emails recovered by the FBI that were sent to State as potentially work-related.
In March 2015 Hillary Clinton said she chose to delete only her personal emails:
“E-mails about planning Chelsea’s wedding or my mother’s funeral arrangements, condolence notes to friends, as well as yoga routines, family vacations, the other things you typically find in inboxes. No one wants their personal e-mails made public, and I think most people understand that and respect that privacy.”

BE CAREFUL OUT THERE …
The same people who want you to believe that man-caused global warming is real want you to believe Hillary Clinton has done nothing wrong. It’s called suspension of disbelief. At the moment Clinton is attempting to bury Donald Trump in negative ads. It is a typical Clinton tactic – a smokescreen meant to cloud the truth about the degree of Clinton corruption which is so baldly evident. Nothing epitomizes that corruption as this article:
Emails Show Clinton Foundation Donor Reached Out To Hillary Clinton Before Arms Export Boost
Emails just released by the State Department appear to show Clinton Foundation officials brokering a meeting between then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and a top military leader of Bahrain — a Middle Eastern country that is a major foundation donor. Soon after the correspondence about a meeting, Clinton’s State Department significantly increased arms export authorizations to the country’s autocratic government, even as that nation moved to crush pro-democracy protests.
In a statement quoted by the Wall Street Journal, a Clinton spokesperson, Josh Schwerin, said of the newly released correspondence: “The fact remains that Hillary Clinton never took action as secretary of state because of donations to the Clinton Foundation.”
The emails, which were obtained through a lawsuit by the conservative watchdog group Judicial Watch, detail how foundation operations and State Department business intersected, even though they were supposed to be walled off from one another. Last week, Clinton’s campaign said the foundation would stop accepting foreign government donations if she is elected president — but did not explain why it accepted that money while Clinton was America’s top diplomat.

Family Security Matters

For those who grew up in the South, the opening lines of “Dixie” ring loud and clear:
“Oh, I wish I was in the land of cotton,
Old times there are not forgotten…”
But, as political correctness continues to rear its ugly head, much Southern history may soon be forgotten.
Written in 1859, Dixie became an instant hit and, during the Civil War, a great inspirational song for the Confederate army.
But PC now filters American history-evidenced most recently at Vanderbilt University. PCers will surely become Dixie-bound upon learning about the songwriter’s transgression.
Before sharing it, let us examine Vanderbilt University’s experience.
An Army spokesman has confirmed that a training slide that lists Hillary Clinton as an “insider threat” is real. The slide — which shows Hillary Clinton pictured along with the Fort Hood and Navy Yard shooters — became an internet sensation after it was posted on the U.S. Army W.T.F! Moments Facebook page on Sunday.
Via the Washington Examiner:
The other photos show retired Gen. David Petraeus, who gave classified information to his biographer and mistress; Nidal Hasan, who carried out the Fort Hood shooting; Edward Snowden, a former NSA contractor who exposed classified information before seeking asylum in Russia; Aaron Alexis, the Navy Yard shooter; and Chelsea Manning, who gave classified information to WikiLeaks.
Asked for comment, an Army spokesman confirmed that the photo showed a real training slide that was developed 18 months ago and used locally to teach best practices for handling classified information and maintaining operational security. Maj. Thomas Campbell, a U.S. Army Training and Doctrine Command spokesman, said the training slide has been removed.
“As is common with Army training requirements, the local unit was given latitude to develop their own training products to accomplish the overall training objective. This particular presentation had not been reviewed or approved by the unit’s leadership, and does not reflect the position of the Army,” Campbell said.
Why not? She’s perfectly relevant to the topic. There is no better recent example of what not to do with classified material than Hillary Clinton.
As Clinton has been caught lying about her unsecured emails repeatedly — and she continues to lie about them to this day — she certainly should be considered an insider threat to national security.

Washington Free Beacon
The Obama administration is withholding from Congress details about how $1.3 billion in U.S. taxpayer funds was delivered to Iran, according to conversations with lawmakers, who told the Washington Free Beacon that the administration is now stonewalling an official inquiry into the matter.
The Departments of State, Treasury, and Justice have all rebuffed a congressional probe into the circumstances surrounding the $1.3 billion payment to Iran, which is part of an additional $400 million cash payout that occurred just prior to the release of several U.S. hostages and led to accusations that the administration had paid Iran a ransom.
The Obama administration has admitted in recent days that the $400 million cash delivery to Iran was part of an effort to secure the release of these American hostages, raising further questions on Capitol Hill about White House efforts to suppress these details from the public.
The $400 million was part of a $1.7 billion legal settlement reached with Iran earlier this year. Congressional inquiries into how this money reached Iran are failing to get answers.
