Clinton White House had its
own security clearance backlog

Washington Times, by Rowan Scarborough

Original Article

Posted By:LittleHoodedMonk, 2/14/2018 6:29:56 PM

A backlog in security clearances for sensitive White House jobs is not new. Just ask the Clinton administration. More than a year into Bill Clinton’s first term, of 1,044 White House personnel, nearly 100 had no security clearance at all, according to press reports in 1994. The scandal alarmed both Republicans and Democrats on the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence, who wrote to CIA Director James Woolsey on March 17, 1994. (Snip) And there was a problem with basic passes. Nearly one-third of all staff lacked permanent grounds and building passes. The Washington Times reported that the blame lied with an

Comments:

I agree with the comment. There were many in the Obama administration who did not have clearance.

The Clintons may have had a backlog (in the beginning) ... until they just ignored the security clearances. The 0bamas did away with the security clearances altogether.

I still want to know how Valerie Jarett with her links to Iran and her slumlord status; and Huma Abedin with her clear links to the Muslim Brotherhood (parents were functionaries, and she edited their newspaper)got their clearances.

I am very concerned with Congressional staff security clearances. They have access to a lot of information, and a lot of things are ending up in the press.

Excuse me but the left had no concern for the known marxists and communists in Obama’s White House. No one cared about that.

Recent perfidy disclosures have revealed that libtards have no problem leaking classified to those without clearances, allowing uncleared maids access to a SCIF, removing classified markings, sending classified into the ether for the whole world to gobble up, sending classified to a hubbie or even discussing it with foreigners. Talk about chutzpah.

Jared Kushner scores first major
bipartisan deal for Trump in Congress
Washington Examiner [DC], by Paul Bedard    Original Article

An effort led by senior White House adviser Jared Kushner to both increase prison security and provide a pathway out for some 4,000 well-behaved prisoners has scored a major, and lopsided, victory, the first major bipartisan deal for the Trump White House. The House Judiciary Committee voted 25-5 to back the “First Step Act,” a shocking turn after the media had earlier written off chances that it would pass. “We see it as a big win,” said an administration official involved in the talks between House Republicans and Democrats. Shut the revolving door on crime? Republicans and Democrats work together? Sound impossible?

A former Democratic congressman from Chicago, heading to prison for the third time, says he has “given up on America” and plans to move to Africa after he serves his latest sentence. At his sentencing Thursday, Mel Reynolds, 66, got six months in prison for failing to file tax returns on more than $400,000 he received for consulting work. He also received a scolding from federal Judge Robert Gettleman, who told the Harvard graduate he could recall thinking to himself in the early 1990s that Reynolds had tremendous promise. “It's a tragedy that you squandered the opportunities you had and the type of person you could have become,"

A jubilant President Trump tweeted on Thursday to announce that five of the ´Most Wanted leaders of ISIS´ have been captured after they were lured from Syria to Iraq with fake Telegram messages. Iraqi officials used the cell phone of already captured ISIS lieutenant Ismail al-Eithawi to send instructions via the app for the four other leaders to come to Iraq, where they were seized. The encrypted app was officially named by ISIS as one of its favored mobile messaging services in 2015 and has been regularly used by the terror group for private communication and to spread propaganda.

Iran strikes prove Trump’s
nuke-deal move is already a win
New York Post, by Editorial    Original Article

President Trump’s decision to scrap the Iran nuke deal had a lot to do with Tehran’s decision to fire missiles at Israel late Wednesday. First, the Iranians likely timed the attack to make it seem that the president had instantly made things worse in the region. That also explains why Iran’s Houthi proxies in Yemen shot missiles into Saudi Arabia hours after Trump’s nuke-deal news. Second, Iran’s power in Syria and Yemen is itself in good part the result of Team Obama’s policies, including the nuke deal — which left Washington with few ways to respond to Tehran’s non­nuclear outrages while freeing up billions in cash to fund Iranian

Boston - Some immigrants living in the country illegally and accused of crimes sit in legal limbo, caught in a tug of a war between local prosecutors and federal immigration authorities who won´t let them appear in court because they fear being denied the opportunity to deport them. (Snip) Under President Trump, the agency is specifically targeting suspects not yet found guilty, a departure from the Obama administration, which focused primarily on those convicted, attorneys say. Advocates argue ICE has also sometimes used criminal allegations against immigrants in their deportation efforts without letting them answer the charges.

Depok, Indonesia — A day after Islamic State followers seized part of a high-security terrorist detention center and killed five guards, the country was left on Thursday with no shortage of questions to ponder.

Jerusalem - The Israeli military on Thursday said it attacked “dozens” of Iranian targets in neighboring Syria in response to an Iranian rocket barrage on Israeli positions in the Golan Heights, in the most serious military confrontation between the two bitter enemies to date. Israel said the targets included weapons storage, logistics sites and intelligence centers used by elite Iranian forces in Syria. It also said it destroyed several Syrian air-defense systems after coming under heavy fire. It said none of its warplanes was hit. The blistering Israeli assault was by far the most intensive Israeli action in neighboring Syria since the civil war

(Snip) After the talks with Putin, Netanyahu sounded upbeat. “In previous meetings, given statements that were putatively attributed to - or were made by - the Russian side, it was meant to have limited our freedom of action or harm other interests and that didn’t happen, and I have no basis to think that this time will be different,” he told reporters in a phone briefing. There was no immediate comment from the Kremlin.

Sen.

McCain acknowledged in January 2017 that he delivered a dossier of “sensitive information” to then-FBI Director James Comey. In his upcoming book, "The Restless Wave," McCain wrote that he "did what duty demanded I do" in passing on the documents. “I discharged that obligation, and I would do it again. Anyone who doesn’t like it can go to hell,” McCain said, according to excerpts of the book published

Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., on Wednesday warned the Trump administration against going easy on North Korea in talks about its nuclear program just because that country released three U.S. detainees. "We cannot forget: No regime has the right to hold American citizens in captivity without cause, and under no circumstances should American citizens be viewed as bargaining chips," Schumer said Wednesday on the Senate floor.

John McCain now regrets choosing her as his 2008 running mate is ´like a perpetual gut-punch´ every time she hears about it.

Noam Chomsky may not be a household name in most circles, but the philosopher and linguist has a reputation in academic and political circles for his outspoken radical left worldview. In a recent 90-minute speech at St. Olaf College (no word if Rose Nylund is an alumna), Chomsky declared that he knows the biggest threat to the world. And boy, is it a doozy! So, is the truest threat to the world North Korea? Is it Iran or ISIS? How about Russia or China? Nope. According to Chomsky, nuclear war and climate change are pretty scary, but the big threats

Democrats will lower the federal debt if they retake control of the government, House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi said Thursday, even as they seek to enact major infrastructure spending and other new programs while undoing the GOP tax law. “Democrats believe you must pay as you go,” the California Democrat said at an event hosted by the fiscally conservative Peter G.

Kelly Sadler, a special assistant in the White House, is accused of mocking John McCain on Thursday. McCain, the Republican senator from Arizona, is battling an aggressive form of brain cancer. Two unnamed sources told The Hill that Sadler took issue with McCain´s criticism of President Donald Trump´s CIA nominee, Gina Haspel, allegedly dismissing the ailing McCain, saying "he´s dying anyway." McCain on Wednesday said that Haspel is unfit to run the CIA because she would not say definitively that torture is immoral. That issue is one of several that have made Haspel´s journey toward Senate confirmation an uphill battle.

He said that the discussion about putting Harriet Tubman on the $20 bill made him want "to use Bitcoin," because "It’s like when you see all the slave movies: Why you gotta keep reminding us about slavery?" And he said that certain black icons such as Martin Luther King Jr. and Malcolm X are "just too far in the past and not relatable and that’s what makes them safe."
