The Justice Department is defending former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton from a motion to subpoena her private emails under the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA).
“Such action is unnecessary and inappropriate under FOIA,” DOJ officials wrote in a legal briefing filed Thursday. Officials were responding to a case launched by Larry Klayman, the founder of the conservative watchdog group Freedom Watch.
Klayman is asking the U.S. Court of Appeals in Washington, D.C., to subpoena Clinton’s computer server where she housed the private email address she used while serving in the State Department.
Clinton has turned over 55,000 pages of emails that she believed could be considered official government communications, but she deleted 30,000 emails that she considered to be personal.
The Justice Department describes Klayman’s call for a subpoena as “speculation” in its brief.
“Plaintiff provides no basis, beyond sheer speculation, to believe that former Secretary Clinton withheld any work-related emails from those provided to the Department of State,” the agency says.
John Boehner and the establishment elites within the Republican party have a history of punishing conservatives who dare to disagree with the leadership. John Boehner is especially well known for this in conservative circles: he has previously removed conservatives from key committee positions in 2012 for not falling in line; in 2013 he fired the top conservative in the Republican Study Committee; and again last year he punished those that dared to vote against His Excellency for Speaker of the House.
And now, if Ted Cruz is telling the truth, we can add his name as well as Mike Lee to the list of conservatives who have been punished by the establishment Republican leadership. It is not a secret that the establishment was very upset at these two people who actually tried to make good on their campaign promises instead of just paying them lip service as do the rest of the Republicans in Washington, but for the first time Ted Cruz has let us know how upset they really were.

Now on to the musical selection of the week: A couple of weeks ago I shared the first audio sample released from Muse’s upcoming new CD entitled “Drones.” That song was entitled “Psycho” and now the first single has hit the airwaves. This song is called “Dead Inside” and I happened to find a video of the first (and as far as I know, the only) time the band performed has this song live to date and here it is. It is an audience recording but the audio and the video are sill pretty good.
Did Hillary Clinton use her personal email server to set up what might amount to a secret spy ring to gather intelligence in Libya before the Benghazi terrorist attack which left Chris Stevens, Glen Doherty, Sean Smith, and Tyrone Woods dead?
That is what is being speculated in this article, here is more:
In my post about Harry Reid’s announcement that he was going to retire and would not be running for reelection in 2016 I speculated that this might be due to the recent Department of Homeland Security Inspector General report which was released two days before the Senator from Nevada announced his decision.
The report found that Harry Reid used his political position and power to pressure the Department of Homeland Security into expediting visas which freed up $115 to a client of his son Rory. I found the timing to be a remarkable coincidence!
Now Breitbart has taken the speculation even further. Here is more:
Earlier today Trey Gowdy made the shocking claim, if it is true, that Hillary Clinton has erased every single email from the personal email server she was using to conduct all State Department business. Here is more:
Hillary Clinton wiped “clean” the private server housing emails from her tenure as secretary of state, the chairman of the House committee investigating the 2012 terrorist attacks in Benghazi said Friday.
“While it is not clear precisely when Secretary Clinton decided to permanently delete all emails from her server, it appears she made the decision after October 28, 2014, when the Department of State for the first time asked the Secretary to return her public record to the Department,” Rep. Trey Gowdy (R-S.C.), chairman of the Select Committee on Benghazi, said in a statement.
Lest you feel this is nothing but a witch hunt or a fishing expedition it appears as if one of Hillary Clinton’s lawyers, David Kendall, has confirmed this is indeed true. Here is more on this revelation:
Democratic Congresswoman Barbara Lee has introduced House Concurrent Resolution 29 in an attempt to draw attention to the dangers global warming presents to women in the United States and across the globe. In this resolution she claims that women will be forced into prostitution because food will be hard to come by and some women will need to enter the sex trade in order to earn more money in order to provide for their families.
Here is the text from that portion of the resolution:
food insecure women with limited socioeconomic resources may be vulnerable to situations such as sex work, transactional sex, and early marriage that put them at risk for HIV, STIs, unplanned pregnancy, and poor reproductive health
I have to give her credit for taking global warming fear-mongering to a new level, just when I think I have heard it all along comes someone like Barbara Lee to prove me wrong.
But with more and more scientists questioning global warming, and with NASA being investigated for “adjusting” historical temperatures, I suppose the left feels as if time is running out for them to pass their radical agenda so this explains the increase in rhetoric as well as why FEMA is trying to extort States into accepting the Federal government’s official stance on global warming.
