Rescued Woman Goes Off On CNN For Hurricane Harvey Coverage
|| Daily Caller
“A woman who was rescued from Hurricane Harvey after 36 hours went off on CNN for trying to interview her on camera while she was with her children.
The mother began the interview by explaining how long she had to wait to be rescued, but was becoming visibly upset and anxious by having to share her story to the CNN correspondent.
The CNN correspondent continued to ask questions and touch the mother’s arm as she and her daughter were crying.
“We walked through four feet of water to get food on the first day,” the mother said, clearly annoyed at this point. “Yeah, that’s a lot of shit.”
“But y’all sit here, y’all trying to interview people during their worst times — like that’s not the smartest thing to do. Like people are really breaking down and y’all sitting here with cameras and microphones trying to ask us what the fuck is wrong with us,” she continued.
“And you really trying to understand with the microphone still in my face? With me shivering cold, with my kids wet, and you still putting the microphone in my face.”
CNN cut back to Jim Acosta, who awkwardly said they would go back to the correspondent later because of the “upset family.”
FBI Denies FOIA Request For Hillary Documents Due To “Lack Of Public Interest”
“It was just over a year ago that James Comey boldly consolidated the roles of investigator, lawyer, judge and jury when he announced that, although Hillary was “extremely careless” in her mishandling of classified State Department emails, no reasonable prosecutor would be willing to bring charges against her.
The decision sparked national outrage, particularly since it came just a few days after Bill Clinton happened to be spotted by a local reporter meeting privately with then Attorney General Loretta Lynch on a tarmac in Phoenix. Combine that with Comey’s admission under oath that Loretta Lynch clearly attempted to interfere in the FBI’s investigation and it all wreaked of just another Clinton coverup…said another way, just a bunch of Republicans trying to “criminalize things that are normal.”
Be that as it may, at least one attorney,Ty Clevenger of New York, has been working diligently to make sure that Hillary and various members of her staff face at least some consequences for their alleged crimes which range from perjury under oath to willful destruction of evidence protected by a Congressional subpoena, among many others. We noted the efforts of Clevenger to get Hillary disbarred in the state of Arkansas back in June in a post entitled “Hillary Not “Out Of The Woods”: Arkansas Bar Considers Disciplinary Action Over Email Scandal.”
Alas,it seems as though Clevenger’s pursuit of Hillary has been has been held up by the FBI for a rather curious reason, namely a “lack of public interest.”
Dear FBI, on behalf of Mr. Clevenger, please allow us to submit Exhibit A regarding the public’s interest in this and all future FOIA requests regarding Mrs. Clinton’s records…there are roughly 63mm people (and probably a couple of Democrats as well) who are very eager to learn anything you might have to disclose regarding Hillary’s alleged transgressions.”
Clinton directed her maid to print out classified materials
– NY Post
“As secretary of state, Hillary Clinton routinely asked her maid to print out sensitive government e-mails and documents — including ones containing classified information — from her house in Washington, DC, e-mails and FBI memos show. But the housekeeper lacked the security clearance to handle such material.
In fact, Marina Santos was called on so frequently to receive e-mails that she may hold the secrets to E-mailgate — if only the FBI and Congress would subpoena her and the equipment she used.
Clinton entrusted far more than the care of her DC residence, known as Whitehaven, to Santos. She expected the Filipino immigrant to handle state secrets, further opening the Democratic presidential nominee to criticism that she played fast and loose with national security.
Clinton would first receive highly sensitive e-mails from top aides at the State Department and then request that they, in turn, forward the messages and any attached documents to Santos to print out for her at the home.
“Pls ask Marina to print for me in am,” Clinton e-mailed top aide Huma Abedin regarding a redacted 2011 message marked sensitive but unclassified.
In a classified 2012 e-mail dealing with the new president of Malawi, another Clinton aide, Monica Hanley, advised Clinton, “We can ask Marina to print this.”
“Revisions to the Iran points” was the subject line of a classified April 2012 e-mail to Clinton from Hanley. In it, the text reads, “Marina is trying to print for you.”
Both classified e-mails were marked “confidential,” the tier below “secret” or “top secret.”
Santos also had access to a highly secure room called an SCIF (sensitive compartmented information facility) that diplomatic security agents set up at Whitehaven, according to FBI notes from an interview with Abedin.
From within the SCIF, Santos — who had no clearance — “collected documents from the secure facsimile machine for Clinton,” the FBI notes revealed.
It also appears the FBI did not formally interview Santos as a key witness in its investigation.
This is a major oversight: Santos may know the whereabouts of a missing Apple MacBook laptop and USB flash drive that contain all of Clinton’s e-mails archived over her four years in office.
The State Department and Clinton campaign did not respond to requests for comment.”
“Eleven days before the election, the news has broken that the FBI is reopening its investigation since it was first revealed in the winter of 2015.
It could be nothing. It could be everything. And it almost certainly won’t be resolved before Americans head to the polls but it will energise her enemies and put her allies on the defensive.
Her preferred email system was one the State Department inspector general found was not approved and did not comply with government rules.
An FBI investigation initially concluded that no “reasonable prosecutor” would bring a criminal case against Mrs Clinton, but that she and her aides were “extremely careless” in their handling of classified information.
Now it says there is new evidence. So how did we get here?
Shortly before she was sworn in as secretary of state in 2009, Hillary Clinton set up an email server at her home in Chappaqua, New York. She then relied on this server, home to the email address email@example.com, for all her electronic correspondence – both work-related and personal – during her four years in office.
She also reportedly set up email addresses on the server for her long-time aide, Huma Abedin, and State Department Chief of Staff Cheryl Mills.
She did not use, or even activate, a state.gov email account, which would have been hosted on servers owned and managed by the US government.
Mrs Clinton’s email system became a national story the first week of March 2015, when the New York Times ran a front-page article on the subject. The article said that the system “may have violated federal requirements” and was “alarming” to current and former government archive officials.”
Democrats should ask Hillary Clinton to step aside
– Chicago Tribune
“Has America become so numb by the decades of lies and cynicism oozing from Clinton Inc. that it could elect Hillary Clinton as president, even after Friday’s FBI announcement that it had reopened an investigation of her emails while secretary of state?
We’ll find out soon enough.
It’s obvious the American political system is breaking down. It’s been crumbling for some time now, and the establishment elite know it and they’re properly frightened. Donald Trump, the vulgarian at their gates, is a symptom, not a cause. Hillary Clinton and husband Bill are both cause and effect.
FBI director James Comey’s announcement about the renewed Clinton email investigation is the bombshell in the presidential campaign. That he announced this so close to Election Day should tell every thinking person that what the FBI is looking at is extremely serious.
This can’t be about pervert Anthony Weiner and his reported desire for a teenage girl. But it can be about the laptop of Weiner’s wife, Clinton aide Huma Abedin, and emails between her and Hillary. It comes after the FBI investigation in which Comey concluded Clinton had lied and been “reckless” with national secrets, but said he could not recommend prosecution.
So what should the Democrats do now?
If ruling Democrats hold themselves to the high moral standards they impose on the people they govern, they would follow a simple process:
They would demand that Mrs. Clinton step down, immediately, and let her vice presidential nominee, Sen. Tim Kaine of Virginia, stand in her place.
Since Oct. 7, WikiLeaks has released 35,000 emails hacked from Clinton campaign boss John Podesta. Now WikiLeaks, no longer a neutral player but an active anti-Clinton agency, plans to release another 15,000 emails.
What if she is elected? Think of a nation suffering a bad economy and continuing chaos in the Middle East, and now also facing a criminal investigation of a president. Add to that congressional investigations and a public vision of Clinton as a Nixonian figure wandering the halls, wringing her hands.”
Abedin reportedly not on campaign plane, fueling speculation on future with Clinton
– Boston Herald
“Hillary Clinton’s closest and most-trusted adviser is on the hot seat after finding herself thrust back into the email scandals that have plagued her boss’ run for the White House — and the fact that she didn’t join the Democratic nominee yesterday is fueling speculation that the campaign is moving to distance itself from her.
“I wonder, is she going to keep Huma?” Donald Trump asked yesterday during a campaign rally in Golden, Colo., referring to embattled top Clinton aide Huma Abedin. “Huma’s been a problem … I wonder if Huma is going to stay there and I hope they haven’t given Huma immunity because she knows the real story — she knows what’s going on.”
Abedin, who two months ago left her scandal-plagued husband, Anthony Weiner, was roped into the latest political snake pit when the FBI started scrubbing emails related to Clinton’s investigation that they reportedly found on a family laptop of Abedin and Weiner. She wasn’t on the Clinton campaign plane yesterday, according to reports.”
WIKILEAKS: Hillary Clinton Needed Someone to ‘Sober Her Up’ at 4:30pm
“Hillary Clinton campaign aides had a frantic email exchange in August 2015 over who should call the candidate to “sober her up some” at around 4:30 in the afternoon.
According to documents published by WikiLeaks, Clinton campaign chairman John Podesta emailed communications aide Jennifer Palmieri with a question at around 2:00 p.m. “Should I call her and talk this through or better to leave with you?” Podesta wrote. “I’m worried she’ll get on with Cheryl [Mills] and we’ll end up in a bad place.”
Palmieri wrote back more than two hours later with a response: “I think you should call her and sober her up some.”
U.S Ignores Hillary Clinton’s Powerful Aide Huma Abedin at Its Own Risk
– Human Events
“A CIA/FBI agent was responsible for creating the first al-Qaeda training manual from classified military sources. Ali Mohamed covertly moved up through the ranks undetected until the Egyptian-born al-Qaeda spy was finally discovered. Though arrested in 1998, Mohamed’s whereabouts and legal status remain unknown. Fort Hood jihadist Nidal Malik Hasan benefited from the same faulty screening.
Whether it’s the CIA or the military, sophisticated surveillance is proving inadequate, and proper background checks of Middle Easterners aren’t being done. Each example serves as another case in point. What makes us think that the State Department would update its virus protection program? Even more disconcerting than Mohamed and Balawi is Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s aide and Deputy Chief of Staff Huma Abedin, who has been with Clinton since 1996. She was never properly screened, this will be proven beyond a shadow of a doubt.
To be concerned about Abedin’s access to sensitive information is an issue that will most likely garner unsolicited curses from “sensitive” Americans who are enamored with her. These same people ignore this diva’s familial ties to the Muslim Brotherhood. Lt. Col. Robert Anderson’s detailed reports aimed at getting Army intelligence to investigate Ali Mohamed—and have him court-martialed—were also ignored.
Abedin is even more potentially dangerous: She can leak state secrets. She is closely associated with her Muslim Brotherhood family and even joined Clinton at an event with her mother, Saleha Abedin, at Dar El-Hekma College in Saudi Arabia. Also present was a close associate of Saleha Abedin—Suheir Qureshi. Qureshi’s name later appeared in several prominent Arab newspapers when it was revealed that she belonged to a list of 63 members of the secret arm of the Muslim Brotherhood called The Sisterhood. The full list was later revealed—Huma Abedin’s mother is on it. Huma’s brother—Hassan Abedin—also collaborates with Omar Naseef and Sheikh Yusuf al-Qaradawi, two of the most influential terror supporters in the world.
And while the U.S. House of Representatives debated whether to cut off funds for Obama’s military campaign in Libya , which aids the Brotherhood-backed rebels, Clinton challenged Congress over its position, asking, “Whose side are you on?”
This is a question the secretary of state should ask herself.”
Hillary Clinton Holds Press Conference After FBI Re-Opens Investigation
– “Have you spoken to Huma? And was she able to give you any information about that?”
Hillary deflects by talking about rumours. Why? When she could directly ask Huma, what devices could they possibly have, and what could possibly be on them?
Coming directly from Huma, that wouldn’t be a rumour, and if true would be a fact.
Not only did Hillary deflect that question, she basically walked out on the press that had many more questions for her. It this what we can expect from a Clinton presidency? A press conference with unscripted questions is the best forum to assess the character and truthfulness of a candidate.
On any scale this was a monumental failure of Nixonian proportions. /CJ
What if Huma Has to Resign?
IS HUMA ABEDIN HILLARY CLINTON’S SECRET WEAPON OR HER NEXT BIG PROBLEM?

“I’m not sure Hillary could walk out the door without Huma,”…….But, for all her proximity to the white-hot center of American politics, Abedin is every bit as unknown to the general public as her boss is world-famous.”
FBI Re-Opens Investigation Into Hillary Clinton’s Emails
– Daily Caller
“A major development just 11 days before the presidential election, the FBI is re-opening its investigation into former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s emails.
“In connection with an unrelated case, the FBI has learned of the existence of emails that appear to be pertinent to the investigation,” FBI director James Comey wrote in an letter to members of Congress released Friday. “I am writing to inform you that the investigative team briefed me on this yesterday, and I agreed that the FBI should take appropriate investigative steps designed to allow investigators to review these emails to determine whether they contain classified information, as well as to assess their importance to our investigation.”
“Although the FBI cannot yet assess whether or not this material may be significant, and I cannot predict how long it will take us to complete this additional work, I believe it is important to update your committees about our efforts in light of my previous testimony,” Comey wrote.
Clinton was on an airplane when the news first broke. She didn’t comment when she disembarked in Iowa.
Hillary Clinton’s campaign chairman, John Podesta, expressed his outrage at the announcement on Friday: “It is extraordinary that we would see something like this just 11 days out from a presidential election.”
“The Director owes it to the American people to immediately provide the full details of what he is now examining,” Podesta said.
Reacting to the news, House Speaker Paul Ryan wrote: “I renew my call for the Director of National Intelligence to suspend all classified briefings for Secretary Clinton until this matter is fully resolved.”
Bernstein: FBI Would Not Reopen Case Unless New Evidence Was “A Real Bombshell”
– Real Clear Politics
“Watergate journalist Carl Bernstein comments on the FBI’s shocking Friday afternoon announcement that they are reopening the investigation into Hilary Clinton’s email server because new evidence has come to light.
We don’t know what this means yet except that it’s a real bombshell. And it is unthinkable that the Director of the FBI would take this action lightly, that he would put this letter forth to the Congress of the United States saying there is more information out there about classified e-mails and call it to the attention of congress unless it was something requiring serious investigation. So that’s where we are…
But this is her achilles heel and we have to remember that it also comes on the — back to the word heel — of the revelations about the Clinton Foundation. So the confluence of all of this is bad for her as it stands now but with some knowledge she might be able to stop, turn things around, and give us some idea of what’s going on in a way we might not otherwise know, and also it’s very possible that some members of congress very quickly are going to get an idea of what these e-mails are, and what this is all about, and for whatever purpose put some information out there.”
Hillary Clinton Avoids Reporters’ Questions on the FBI Reopening Investigation
“Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton ignored shouted questions by her traveling press pool on the tarmac in Cedar Rapids, Iowa, about the FBI announcing Friday it was re-opening its investigation into Clinton’s use of a private email server after previously undisclosed Clinton emails were discovered. Clinton gave the press a smile and a wave as she walked down the stairs from her campaign plane Hill Force One and entered her waiting Secret Service vehicle without saying anything. The press was kept waiting on the tarmac as Clinton reportedly met with advisers on the plane for thirty minutes.
UPDATE: The AP reported Clinton spent part of her time on the plane posing for photographs:
“Clinton spent about 25 minutes on the plane after it landed before she emerged. Following Clinton off the plane was famed photographer Annie Leibovitz. She was shooting photos of the candidate for at least part of the time reporters were waiting for the candidate.”

Pence calls on FBI to release new emails in Clinton investigation
– Washington Examiner
“Indiana Gov. Mike Pence on Friday called on the FBI to release new emails that forced it to reopen its investigation into Hillary Clinton’s private emails.
Pence made the call during a campaign event in Bensalem, Pa., and speculated that Clinton “may have been a whole lot more than extremely careless” in her handling of classified information.
“The big breaking news today — you may not have heard about it standing in line folks — is that now we just learned that Hillary Clinton may have been a whole lot more than extremely careless when it came to handling classified information,” Pence said. “The director of the FBI, James Comey, this afternoon, just sent a letter to the Congress reopening the investigation against Hillary Clinton and her private email server.”
The crowd responded by cheering and chanting “lock her up,” as has become commonplace at Donald Trump rallies since the Republican National Convention.
Feinstein Finally Wakes up to Clinton Illegal Email Server Scandal
“Sen. Dianne Feinstein (Calif.), the top Democrat on the Senate Intelligence Committee, denounced the move as “appalling” considering the timing, how little the FBI appears to know about the emails, and how little Comey said.
“Without knowing how many emails are involved, who wrote them, when they were written or their subject matter, it’s impossible to make any informed judgment on this development,” Feinstein said. “However, one thing is clear: Director Comey’s announcement played right into the political campaign of Donald Trump, who is already using the letter for political purposes. And all of this just 11 days before the election.”
“It’s too bad Director Comey didn’t take those gaping holes into consideration when he decided to send this letter,” Feinstein added. “The FBI has a history of extreme caution near Election Day so as not to influence the results. Today’s break from that tradition is appalling.”
Clinton Campaign Email Outlines Effort “TO PRODUCE AN UNAWARE AND COMPLIANT CITIZENRY”
“A Clinton campaign email released as part of the Wikileaks data dump earlier today talks about the need to maintain political power by producing “an unaware and compliant citizenry”.
The email was sent to Hillary Clinton’s campaign chairman John Podesta by former Clinton administration official Bill Ivey on March 13, 2016.
In the email, Ivey outlines the panic amongst some Democrats that Donald Trump’s “celebrity politics” persona cannot be matched by Hillary, who is “not an entertainer, and not a celebrity in the Trump, Kardashian mold.”
Ivey wonders how Clinton can combat Trump’s larger than life appeal, worrying that simply ‘defaulting to policy’ won’t work.
“And as I’ve mentioned, we’ve all been quite content to demean government, drop civics and in general conspire to produce an unaware and compliant citizenry,” he writes.”
SCRIPTED: Entire leftist media is told exactly what to print, what to ask and what to think by the Clinton campaign
– Natural News
“The Wikileaks email dumps on John Podesta are so packed with bombshells about media collusion with the Clintons, I can’t even process them all. So I’m including some of the highlights as headline links below.
The bottom line of what’s coming out so far is that the entire mainstream media is controlled and scripted by the Clintons and democrats. In other words, the “mainstream” media is now nothing more than an extension of the state.
Democrats, the Clintons, the federal government and the mainstream media have all merged into one grand orgy of collusion, spewing disinformation and lies to keep their most adored criminals (Obama and the Clintons) in power while destroying anyone who challenges the status quo.
As you’ll see in the stories linked below, the Clinton campaign tells the media what to print, what questions to ask, what to censor and what to conclude. Journalists working for CNBC, CNN, NYT, etc., are not allowed to engage in anything resembling real journalism. Their stories are scripted in advance. Everything is orchestrated and engineered. The game is rigged at every level…..”
Emails: Boston Globe Coordinated How To Maximize Hillary’s ‘Presence’
– Daily Caller
“Staff at The Boston Globe worked with Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign to maximize her “presence” during her primary race against Sen. Bernie Sanders, new emails show.
The exchange is one of thousands from the inbox of Clinton campaign chairman John Podesta leaked by the online hacktivist group WikiLeaks over the past week.
Marjorie Pritchard, the Globe’s op-ed editor, contacted Podesta wondering if the Clinton campaign was still set to submit an op-ed. But then, Pritchard went above and beyond and offered tips about how the campaign could extract maximum benefit from the piece by coordinating its publication to match the Globe’s regular reporting.”
GOP Debate Moderator John Harwood Trashed Trump in Emails to the Clinton Campaign
“With a new batch of hacked emails from Hillary Clinton campaign manager John Podesta released Tuesday came a new batch of sympathetic and complementary emails sent by New York Times contributor and CNBC host John Harwood.
Harwood appeared dismissive of the several controversies surrounding Clinton, even criticizing his own outlet on more than one occasion. “I must say, though I don’t know the terms. I find it weird that NYT made some sort of deal with the guy writing that book,” Harwood emailed in April, an apparent reference to the Times‘ decision to collaborate with the author of “Clinton Cash,” the book which first raised questions about the Clinton Foundation.
In another email, Harwood trashed the Times for reporting that Joe Biden was considering entering the race. “Cannot believe Biden story is leading the paper. Correct me if I am wrong, since you would know better, but it strikes me that ‘Biden is actively exploring’ is the new ‘criminal referral of Hillary Clinton’ if you know what I mean,” he said, a disparaging reference to The Times‘ reporting on Clinton’s emails.
Perhaps most troublingly, Harwood also trashed Donald Trump to Podesta after having served as a moderator at the CNBC Republican presidential debate.”
Hillary In Leaked Email: Saudi Arabia And Qatar Are Funding ISIS
“Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton sent an email to her campaign chairman John Podesta in 2014, who was then-counselor to President Barack Obama, that said Saudi Arabia and Qatar are both giving financial and logistical support to the Islamic State and other extremist Sunni groups, according to a recent Wikileaks release.”
