Hillary Clinton Used Personal Email, May Have Violated Federal Law as Secretary of State

Hillary Rodham Clinton

Hillary Clinton may have violated federal record keeping laws by exclusively using a personal email account during her time as secretary of state

Clinton used a personal email address to conduct government business, and did not even have a government email address during her four-year tenure as secretary of state. Additionally, her aides took no action to have her personal emails preserved, which is required of all officials under the Federal Records Act, according to the Times. The law is designed to allow congressional committees, historians and members of the media to have access to officials’ emails, which are considered government documents.

Clinton stepped down as Secretary of State in 2013, but it wasn’t until recently that a House committee investigating the attack on the American Consulate in Benghazi discovered her use of a personal account.

Boehner Calls Netanyahu Closest Ally in Fight Against Obama

By

WASHINGTON (The Borowitz Report)—On the eve of the Israeli Prime Minister’s address to Congress, House Speaker John Boehner used a joint press conference to praise Benjamin Netanyahu, calling him “our closest and most important ally in the fight against President Obama.”

“Even as the President threatens us with provocative acts, Prime Minister Netanyahu’s support for us has been unwavering,” Boehner said. “He understands what many of us have long known: that peace with this enemy can only be achieved through total victory.”

Netanyahu had equally high praise for Boehner, saying that “no one has been more steadfast and dedicated in the struggle against your President.”

“This foe is not to be trusted or appeased,” Netanyahu said. “Your resolute refusal to find any common ground with him whatsoever has earned my undying respect.”

As the press conference drew to a conclusion, Boehner appeared to fight back tears as he called Netanyahu “a brother in arms” in the ongoing hostilities with Obama.

“A wise man once said that my enemy’s enemy is my friend,” Boehner said, choking up. “You, sir, are my best friend in the world.”

Walker Vows to Destroy ISIS’s Teachers

'Walker Vows to Destroy ISIS’s Teachers<br />
WASHINGTON – In an appearance on “Fox News Sunday,” Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker expanded on his comment that battling his state’s teachers’ union had prepared him to fight the terrorist group ISIS, telling host Chris Wallace, “All I meant was, if you want to eliminate ISIS, the first thing you must do is get rid of their teachers.” Expanding on that remark, Walker said,  “Chris, we must identify the people who are teaching ISIS their tactics – in other words, their teachers – and eliminate them. I did that in Wisconsin and I can do it in Iraq and Syria.” As President, Walker said, he would rebrand the war on terror as “a global war on teachers,” adding, “Behind every problem, there are teachers you need to  get rid of."

The Mensch Group Just Might Sell IT.

It’becoming clear the Mensch Group has no plans to tear down the buildings on the Greenfield land mass. What I believe they plan to do is find a buyer or buyers  and sell this  property.

They will make their profit and use the money for other projects.
