Clinton Foundation Donations Plummeted by 37 Percent

Donations to the Clinton Foundation tanked in 2015 amid allegations that Hillary Clinton used the billion-dollar charity to siphon seven-figure donations from foreign governments and corporations, who received favorable government actions while Clinton was Secretary of State. The Clinton’s troubled charity received $108 million in donations in 2015, down from a $172 million haul in 2014, according to the organization’s tax records. The Clinton’s seven-figure speech income collapsed, too, from $3.6 million in 2014 to $357,500 in 2015, the New York Post reports. Allegations of corruption at the Clinton Foundation—first reported by Breitbart News Editor-at-Large, Clinton Cash author, and Government Accountability Institute president Peter Schweizer—spurred more than a...

House passes bill targeting ‘midnight’ Obama regs

The House on Thursday passed legislation that would allow Congress to overturn in a single vote any regulations finalized in the last days of the Obama administration. Despite Democratic opposition, the Midnight Rule Relief Act passed largely along party lines, by a 240-179 vote.

Bob Goodlatte (R-Va.) urged his colleagues on the floor Thursday morning to pass the legislation and tell the American people that lawmakers heard them on Election Day loud and clear. “The...

Donald Trump is not the president yet, and Barack Obama could still do an extraordinary amount of damage during his last two months in the White House. Prior to the election, I described the period of time ending on January 20th as “the danger zone”, and my outlook has not changed just because Donald Trump was victorious on election night. As you will see, the next two months are an absolutely critical time, and if we can get through January 20th without something major happening perhaps we can breathe a little bit easier (at least for a while). On...

Obama sets new record for regulations, 527 pages in 1 day

President Obama has just set a new record for rules and regulations, his administration spitting out 527 pages worth in just one day, as he races to put his fingerprint on virtually every corner of American life and business.

At 81,640 total pages for 2016, it ranks first and 235 pages more than all of those published in 2010, the previous record.     What’s more, there are still about 26...

Philippines May Pull Out Of ‘Useless’ ICC, Happy To Join World Order Led By Russia And China

Philippines President Rodrigo Duterte says he might follow Russia’s lead and withdraw his country from the International Criminal Court (ICC). He went on to slam Western countries which have criticized his controversial ‘war on drugs’. Speaking on Thursday ahead of his departure to Lima to attend the Asia-Pacific summit, Duterte slammed the ICC as “useless,” following criticism by an ICC prosecutor last month that the Hague-based tribunal may have jurisdiction to prosecute those responsible for deaths related to the leader’s crackdown on drugs. Duterte said he is annoyed about the criticism he has received, and stressed that “nobody was...
