Pentagon officials allowed their employees to use government credit cards at strip clubs and casinos, without any disciplinary action, according to a new report released Tuesday. The report from the Department of Defense’s inspector general found that management did not take the correct course of action after finding out their workers used government credit cards for non-work related purposes. “DoD management did not take appropriate action when notified that cardholders potentially misused their travel card at casinos and adult entertainment establishments,” the report said. “Specifically, DoD management and travel card officials did not perform adequate reviews for the cardholders reviewed and did

President Obama is "gratified" that his administration has succeeded in meeting its goal of admitting 10,000 Syrian refugees to the United States this fiscal year, and he "certainly would like to see the United States continue to ramp up our commitment," spokesman Josh Earnest told reporters on Monday. As CNSNews.com reported on Monday, 10,126 Syrian refugees have been admitted to the United States for Fiscal 2016, of whom 52 -- or 0.51 percent -- are Christians; and 9,945 -- or 98.2 -- percent, are Sunni Muslims. "And the truth is that this administration did succeed in meeting this goal, a

It has been no secret that Russia is building up its forces in the Arctic region as the Kremlin covets and wants to protect future access to the natural resources in the region. Russia is also actively preparing to militarize its eastern coastline with large numbers of troops to be garrisoned from near the U.S. border in Alaska to the Kuril Islands in the south, currently disputed with Japan. The new forces scheduled to arrive in 2018 will be as close as 85km to the US border. Speaking at a Defense Ministry meeting on Tuesday, Sergei Shoigu confirmed that “there are plans

WASHINGTON, Aug 30 - U.S. President Barack Obama shortened the prison sentences of 111 convicts serving time for drug-related offenses in his second round of clemency grants this month, the White House said on Tuesday. Obama has now granted a total of 673 commutations during his presidency, more than the number granted by the 10 previous presidents combined, as he seeks to reform the criminal justice system, it said. For some of the convicts, the commutations mean they will serve only half of their original prison sentences. For instance, Sly Stallone Aikens of South Carolina, serving a sentence of 360

Does the new batch of previously undisclosed State Department emails prove that big-money donors to the Bill, Hillary & Chelsea Clinton Foundation got special favors from Mrs. Clinton while she was secretary of state? Not so far, but that the question arises yet again points to a need for major changes at the foundation now, before the November election. Bill Clinton created the foundation in 2001 as a vehicle to fund his presidential library. He and his supporters have since raised more than $2 billion and pioneered initiatives ranging from fostering female-owned businesses in Haiti to lowering the cost of H.I.V./AIDS drugs

In addition to all the other flak he has received for boycotting the national anthem, San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick has been blasted for justifying his decision while wearing a T-shirt that features Cuban dictator Fidel Castro. Even this criticism overlooks an interesting fact: Kaepernick’s defiant protest would have been totally illegal in Castro’s Cuba. The shirt Kaepernick wore commemorates a 1961 meeting between Castro and black activist Malcolm X. A few people, such as George Diaz of the Orlando Sentinel, have pointed out the irony of Kaepernick complaining about racial oppression while wearing a shirt featuring an oppressive

Hey Colin Kaepernick, I’d like to introduce you to a few men. Meet Sgt. William Carney of the 54th Massachusetts Colored Infantry who was among the brave men attacking Fort Wagner in South Carolina during the Civil War. Carney saw the color bearer ahead of him struck down by Confederate bullets. Already injured, Carney would not let the flag fall to the ground, and he charged forward directly into enemy fire to retrieve it. The enemy shot him up relentlessly, but Carney got to the red, white and blue and carried it high, all the way back to his regiment.

WASHINGTON — U.S. Rep. Jim Clyburn told reporters Tuesday that “no self-respecting African-American would dignify” the presidential campaign of GOP nominee Donald Trump. On the same conference call with reporters, the third-ranking Democrat in the U.S. House and the most senior black lawmaker on Capitol Hill also condemned fellow South Carolinian Mark Burns, a black pastor and Trump surrogate who recently re-tweeted a cartoon of Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton in blackface. Burns, the pastor of the Harvest Praise and Worship Center in Easley, has since apologized for the tweet, which also depicted Clinton wearing a T-shirt that reads “no hot sauce, not

All three networks on Tuesday fretted over the sordid details of Anthony Weiner’s sexting scandal, worrying that the “personal” is now becoming political for Hillary Clinton´s campaign. A CBS This Morning analyst dismissed Donald Trump’s contention that the wife of the unrestrained Weiner may be a security risk. Reporter Hallie Jackson sympathized, “The GOP nominee also getting political on something more personal. Hillary Clinton´s top aide, Huma Abedin splitting from husband Anthony Weiner.” Savannah Guthrie chided, “Donald Trump instantly using the opening to attack his rival.” (Video) Correspondent Kristen Welker reiterated the journalistic concern: “Hillary Clinton and Abedin are so close

A federal judge ordered the State Department on Monday to hand over all documents related to the employment status of Huma Abedin, former deputy chief of staff to Hillary Clinton, by the end of September. But attorneys for the agency told the court Monday they had not yet found any related records among the materials provided this month by the FBI, raising the possibility that the State Department will have no personnel files to produce by its deadline. The Freedom of Information Act lawsuit filed by conservative-leaning Judicial Watch sought documentation of the "special government employee" status given to Abedin in 2012. Thanks

Anthony Weiner is at it again, a three-time loser caught once again exposing himself in Internet exchanges with younger women—who inevitably hand him over to the tabloids for a feeding frenzy. Given his compulsion toward self-destructive behavior, Anthony Weiner is actually lucky sending revealing photos to girls is his thing. If it were liquor, he’d probably already be lying in the gutter on Skid Row. If it were heroin, he’d probably be dead by now. As it is, his third time will cost him plenty, including his marriage to top Hillary Clinton aide Huma Abedin and—well, given the circumstances of the

The Veterans Affairs Department quietly moved this month to ban flying of Confederate flags from fixed flagpoles at the cemeteries it runs, striking yet another blow against the controversial emblem. Congress had debated and rejected that change, but the Obama administration decided to move forward anyway, saying it was unilaterally imposing the restrictions. “In particular, we will amend our policy to make clear that Confederal flags will not be displayed from any permanently fixed flagpole in a national cemetery at any time,” wrote Ronald E.

A senior ISIS figure who was once earmarked as the terror group's next leader has been killed in Syria, it has been reported. Abu Mohammad al-Adnani, one of ISIS' longest-serving officials, was said to have died 'while surveying the operations to repel the military campaigns against Aleppo'. It is not clear whether he was killed by ground forces or in an air strike. Al-Adnani's death comes eight months after he was severely injured in an airstrike while acting as ISIS' chief spokesman in Iraq. ISIS-affiliated media reported the news of his death in a statement distributed by the group's supporters.

Donald Trump has held 16 formal press conferences this year, while Hillary Clinton has gone 259 days without allowing the media to have a similar chance to ask her questions. Clinton´s last free-for-all presser was on December 5, 2015 – months before the first voters cast primary election ballots, and long before the FBI turned up the heat on her classified email scandal. The lopsided press-conference scoreboard has become a consistent whipping boy for the Republican National Committee, which sends daily reminders to its largest media list. ´Clinton owes the American people explanations on a number of issues,´ the RNC´s reminder read
