BREAKING: Clinton Official Just Sentenced To Prison

Published

on

One of the biggest scandals of Bill Clinton’s eight-year tenure as president in the 1990s had nothing to do with sex and a White House intern named Monica Lewinsky, nothing to do with impeachment, and nothing to do with lying to Congress.

Rather, the scandal had everything to do with espionage and the selling out of his country to the then-rising Chinese Communist regime.

In fact, the legacy of Clinton’s ‘alleged’ treasonous behavior made news this week — briefly — when a former State Department employee who worked at Foggy Bottom during those years was sentenced to 40 months in prison after taking Chinese bribes and providing the Communists with requested information.

As Fox News reported:

A federal judge sentenced former State Department employee Candace Claiborne to more than three years in prison and a $40,000 fine Tuesday for accepting thousands of dollars in cash and gifts from Chinese intelligence agents in exchange for information.

U.S. District Court Judge Randolph Moss said, “sentencing is never easy,” but also called Claiborne’s crime, “a truly grave offense, a betrayal of her employer and a betrayal of her country” before giving her 40 months in prison in a Washington D.C. courtroom.

The 63-year-old Claiborne, whom Moss said up to now had portrayed herself as a model citizen with no other criminal history, told the court, “I’m sorry for what I did” before sentencing. In April, she pleaded guilty to a single count of conspiracy to defraud the U.S. and was facing five years in prison.

With a top-secret clearance, Claiborne began working in the State Department as an Office Management Specialist in 1999, towards the end of the Clinton regime. She served overseas in multiple locations including Baghdad, Khartoum, Sudan, as well as Beijing and Shanghai, China.

“This is not what I had envisioned for myself,” Claiborne told Judge Moss. I still don’t know how I lost myself. I lost my job, reputation, and trust of the government. I made a terrible mistake and now I’m paying the price.”

Federal prosecutor Thomas Gillice, however, told the court that Claiborne’s contrition is contrived — that she knew what she was doing, did it for personal and financial gain, and did it for a long time. 

“She did this repeatedly over a period of years and at the expense of her country,” he said.

During her trial, government lawyers presented a trove of data showing her extensive contacts with two Chinese intelligence agents. The trove included text messages, emails, and at least one voicemail.

Some documents shared with her Chinese contacts pertained to visits by dignitaries between the U.S. and China as well as American economic strategies. 

Prosecutors noted that some of Claiborne’s activities took place as late as 2011.

Over a period of at least five years, Chinese agents provided Claiborne with a monthly stipend, a furnished apartment, a laptop, a phone, tuition payments to a Chinese fashion school, and vacations, along with cash and meals. 

The one thing that saved Claiborne in terms of a longer prison sentence: The information she turned over to her Chinese handlers was not classified. Had it been, Moss said, “we would be talking about a sentence three or four times longer than this.”

Enter Bill Clinton. In 1996 during his reelection bid, China illegally donated to his campaign. While the Democrat-aligned “mainstream media” mostly whiffed on the scandal, the Washington Post reported in 1998 that “evidence gathered in federal surveillance intercepts has indicated that the Chinese government planned to increase China’s influence in the U.S. political process in 1996.”

Not only did Clinton surround himself and his campaign with Chinese money men including bundler Charlie Trie and former Commerce Department official John Huang, but he essentially allowed China to steal sensitive American military information on highly advanced nuclear weapons systems.

Why do Democrats care so little about our national security?

God Bless.

Omar, Tlaib, And AOC Are Destroying The Democrat Party According To Crucial New Report

Published

on

By

The so-called ‘Democratic socialist’ wing of the Donkey Party is so toxic with voters in critical swing states that it’s becoming extremely difficult to win them next year, according to a new internal party poll.

As reported by Axios, the survey discovered that Reps. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.) and Ilhan Omar (D-Minn.) are not the popular little socialist firebrands their outsized media love would indicate:

Ocasio-Cortez is recognized by 74 percent of voters, yet has an approval rating of 22 percent

Omar is recognized by 53 percent of voters and has an approval rating of just 9 percent

Voters understand what socialism is, and 69 percent of them view it unfavorably, while just 18 percent view it favorably

Capitalism, meanwhile, is viewed favorably by 56 percent of respondents, and negatively by 32 percent

The unpopularity is so bad, in fact, that Democrats’ chances of retaining control of the House, let alone defeating POTUS Donald Trump, are dim.

“If all voters hear about is AOC, it could put the [House] majority at risk,” a top Democratic source told Axios. “[S]he’s getting all the news and defining everyone else’s races.”

“Socialism is toxic to these voters,” the source added.

Axios says the survey is important because it shows that “Democrats are sounding the alarm that swing voters know and dislike socialism, warning it could cost them the House and the presidency.”

Cortez and Omar — along with Reps. Rashida Tlaib (D-Mich.) and Ayanna Pressley (D-Mass.) form the socialist-leaning “Squad” that has become House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s (D-Calif.) worst nightmare.

Their outsized attention and following is beginning to define who Democrats are, to the detriment of the entire party.

The “Squad”- what a joke.

God Bless.

Jeb Bush Breaks Silence On Generosity The Trump’s Showed The Bush Family

Published

on

By

The Bush family had a choice – go the John McCain route and have every speaker bash Trump in public or they could put politics aside and celebrate the life of a great man.

They chose the latter and that made all the difference in the world. They invited Trump and then refused to let anyone bash Trump, in fact, they demanded every speaker show the proper respect for the office that George H.W. Bush held so dear.

The Trump’s for their part returned the kindness many times over going above and beyond the call of duty to help the Bush family.

From The Daily Wire: Both the Trump and the Bush families have been all class in the wake of the 41st president’s passing. On top of refusing to pull a McCain by inviting President Trump to the funeral, the Bushes have only expressed kind words regarding the current president.

On Tuesday, while speaking before the WSJ CEO Council, Jeb Bush, the former Florida governor, thanked both Donald and Melania Trump for their graciousness throughout this process, adding that President Trump “couldn’t have been nicer” when he called to pay his respects.

None of that means, however, that Jeb Bush and President Trump’s differences have been resolved. In the same talk, Jeb spoke about his father’s famous call for a “kinder, gentler America” and how that needs to come back.

“Politically it’s not winning,” Mr. Bush said of his father’s style. “But that’s not to say we shouldn’t restore it.”

 Jeb Bush hoped that his father’s death would not be “an end of an era.” Later, he spoke of the optimism he has that such an era will return.

“A whole lot of people focused on solving problems, and they know that with civility and kindness and compassion and generosity of spirit you can do far more than pushing people down and making yourself look better,” he said. “I’m much more optimistic because I don’t come here often.”

As to why President Trump would not be giving the eulogy at his father’s funeral, the former Florida governor said that it was a matter of circumstance, being that his brother is a former president.

“What people want to talk about is, Well, why isn’t the president giving the eulogy?’ It’s because we have a unique circumstance here my brother was president,” he said. “I’m sorry. First dibs.”

Laura Bush echoed Jeb’s words earlier when she thanked Melania Trump for her kindness.

From The Hill: Former first lady Laura Bush on Tuesday afternoon thanked first lady Melania Trump for a “sweet visit” to the White House.

Melania Trump led 20 members of the Bush family on a tour through the White House on Tuesday, a White House source told CNN. She reportedly gave them holiday cookies and arranged for them to meet with residence staff members.

 Laura Bush posted an Instagram photo of the family with some residence staff members Tuesday.

“A sweet visit during this somber week,” the former first lady captioned in the Instagram post.

“Thanks to Mrs. Trump for inviting our family to the White House to see the Christmas decorations and our old friends, the residence staff.”

Trey Gowdy Lands New High Profile Media Job And He Deserves It

Published

on

By

Trey Gowdy just landed a new high-profile gig and he deserves it. Trey took to social media to make the announcement that he will be moving to Fox News as a contributor.

This is a good move on many levels – Trey is known as a straight shooter who is not afraid of the hard truths and that is needed more than ever in our political landscape.

The left will be trashing Trey and Fox News when they hear the news, but this is standard procedure for media companies to hire ex-Congressmen.

Trey will moonlight for Fox and will keep his day job at his old law firm in South Carolina.

Trey tweeted out: “Appreciative to Fox News for the chance to weigh in on legal/political issues. Sure to be a lot of both in 2019. Practicing law with Nelson Mullins, contributing where appropriate with Fox, and living in South Carolina. Looking forward to a great year,” Gowdy wrote on his Twitter page on Wednesday.

From The Hill: Former Rep. Trey Gowdy (R-S.C.) has joined Fox News as a contributor, the network announced Wednesday.

Gowdy, who retired from Congress earlier this month, will offer political and legal analysis on Fox News and the Fox Business Network, the outlet said in a press release.

The former four-term congressman representing South Carolina’s 4th Congressional District served as chairman of the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee during his final two years in office.

From Deadline:

Among his appointments during Gowdy’s eight years representing South Carolina’s 4th District, he chaired the House Select Committee on the Benghazi attack and played a key role in Congress’ probe into then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s role in the 2012 terrorist attack that killed four Americans in Libya. He also got plenty of screen time — including many shouted mild expletives — during last year’s Supreme Court confirmation hearings for Brett Kavanaugh.

Gowdy’s hiring follows that of retired Sen. Jeff Flake of Arizona joining CBS News on Tuesday; NBC bringing on ex-Sen. Claire McCaskill (D-Missouri); and CNN signing as contributors former Ohio Gov. and 2016 GOP presidential candidate John Kasich — who also inked with CAA this month — Andrew Gillum, who ran for Florida governor last year; and ex-Reps. Mia Love (R-Utah) and Luis Guiterrez (D-Illinois). McCaskill and Love fell victim to midterm elections in November.
