The AP And Other News Agencies Put At Risk Over 11 Million Children And Adults [Mostly Africans In Africa] That Depends On The Life Saving Drugs The Clinton Foundation Provide To Treat HIV/AIDS World Wide Yet, The AP Wrote A Half Baked Story About The CGI, Endangering The Lives Of Millions, Mostly Africans.

 

The Clinton Foundation Received An “A” Rating For Spreading 89% Of Funds Received On Charity; The Other 11% Is Used For Operational Costs.

 

Con Man Donald Trump who wouldn’t even Release His Tax Returns took the story and called for a Special Prosecutor to investigate the Clinton Foundation. The Misogynistic Media with hidden Racism has been promulgating Bankruptcy Swindler Trump, Bigotry, Hate, Fascism and Racism on a 24/7 dishonest Anti Hillary Clinton Media.

 

The Washington Post Took The Time To Publish A More Honest Version Of The Clinton Foundation. Below are excerpts, but you can open the link and read the entire article.

 

[WAPO] “Surrogates have waxed long on the foundation’s charitable works, its lifesaving endeavors and the “unprecedented” efforts that Clinton put in place to promote transparency. In contrast, they pointed to Trump and what they described as his opaque history of business dealings and entanglements, which they said pose a real conflict of interest.

 

Late Wednesday night, Clinton called into CNN’s Anderson Cooper to offer a full-throated defense of her family’s foundation.

 

“We did provide a lot of life-saving work,” Clinton said. “I’m proud of the work that my husband started and he did.

 

“We provided a massive amount of information and Donald Trump doesn’t release his tax [returns] and is indebted to foreign banks and foreign lenders,” she added.

 

Clinton has largely stayed out of the spotlight, continuing a multiday fundraising swing on the West Coast. On Thursday, her speech in Reno, Nev., will attempt to train the campaign’s full attention on Trump and his connections to the “alt-right,” a conservative movement often associated with white nationalism.

 

Meanwhile, the Trump campaign has gone on the attack.

 

Before noon on Wednesday, the Trump campaign blasted out four separate emails pressuring Clinton on her foundation ties in the hope of keeping the message in the news. Uncharacteristically, most of Trump’s tweets about Clinton have also been tied to the issue.

 

Since the conventions, Trump has battled controversies including the overhaul of his campaign leadership, his campaign aide’s ties to a pro-Russian regime in Ukraine and an ongoing spat with the Muslim parents of a fallen U.S. soldier. Seizing on those controversies, Clinton’s campaign worked to put Trump on the defensive while largely keeping the spotlight off Clinton.”

US Warship Heads To Yemeni Waters; Could block Iran weapons

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , , , , , , , , , , on April 21, 2015 by sheriffali

WASHINGTON (AP) — In a stepped-up response to Iranian backing of Shiite rebels in Yemen, the Navy aircraft carrier USS Theodore Roosevelt is steaming toward the waters off Yemen to beef up security and join other American ships that are prepared to intercept any Iranian vessels carrying weapons to the Houthi rebels.

 

The deployment comes after a U.N. Security Council resolution approved last week imposed an arms embargo on leaders of the Iranian-backed Shiite Houthi rebels. The resolution passed in a 14-0 vote with Russia abstaining.

 

Navy officials said Monday that the Roosevelt was moving through the Arabian Sea. A massive ship that carries F/A-18 fighter jets, the Roosevelt is seen more of a deterrent and show of force in the region.

 

The U.S. Navy has been beefing up its presence in the Gulf of Aden and the southern Arabian Sea in response to reports that a convoy of about eight Iranian ships is heading toward Yemen and possibly carrying arms for the Houthis. Navy officials said there are about nine U.S. warships in the region, including cruisers and destroyers carrying teams that can board and search other vessels.

 

The officials spoke on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to discuss the ship movement on the record.

 

Saudi Arabia and several of its allies, mainly Gulf Arab countries, have been trying to drive back the rebels, who seized the capital of Sanaa in September and have overrun many other northern provinces with the help of security forces loyal to former President Ali Abdullah Saleh. The U.S. supports the Saudi campaign.

 

Western governments and Sunni Arab countries say the Houthis get their arms from Iran. Tehran and the rebels deny that, although the Islamic Republic has provided political and humanitarian support to the Shiite group.

The U.S. has been providing logistical and intelligence support to the Saudi coalition launching airstrikes against the Houthis. That air campaign is now in its fourth week, and the U.S. has also begun refueling coalition aircraft involved in the conflict.

 

White House spokesman Josh Earnest would not comment specifically on any Navy movements in Yemeni waters, but said the U.S. has concerns about Iran’s “continued support for the Houthis.

 

“We have seen evidence that the Iranians are supplying weapons and other armed support to the Houthis in Yemen. That support will only contribute to greater violence in that country. These are exactly the kind of destabilizing activities that we have in mind when we raise concerns about Iran’s destabilizing activities in the Middle East.”

 

He said, “The Iranians are acutely aware of our concerns for their continued support of the Houthis by sending them large shipments of weapons.”

 

The expanded U.S. Navy activity in the region comes at a sensitive time, as the U.S. and six world powers have reached a framework deal with Iran to control its nuclear program. Since the preliminary deal with reached on April 2, Iran and the U.S. have been disputing the details of the deal. And on Monday, a lawyer for Tehran-based Washington Post reporter Jason Rezaian said Tehran had charged Rezaian with espionage and three other crimes. The Obama administration dismisses the charges as “absurd.”

 

The U.S. Navy generally conducts consensual boardings of ships when needed, including to combat piracy around Africa and the region. So far, however, U.S. naval personnel have not boarded any Iranian vessels since the Yemen conflict began.

 

Officials said it’s too soon to speculate on what the Navy ships may do as the Iranian convoy approaches, including whether Iran would consent to a boarding request, and what actions the Navy would take if its request was refused.

 

Yemen, the Arab world’s poorest country, has been pushed to the brink of collapse by ground fighting and the Saudi-led airstrikes in support of current President Abed Rabbo Mansour Hadi, who was forced to flee to Saudi Arabia. Observers say the fighting in the strategic Mideast nation is taking on the appearance of a proxy war between Iran, the Shiite powerhouse backing the Houthis, and Sunni-dominated Saudi Arabia.

General Michael Hayden [R] and Thomas Pickering [R] investigated the Benghazi tragedy and found no cover-up or scandal!

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , on May 15, 2013 by sheriffali

There isn’t any scandal and frankly I don’t know what all the hype is all about. When there isn’t any real news the media that strives of scandals, they formulate one with “loose talking heads.” The worst of them, Fox News!

 

Two very respected people, Thomas Pickering and General Michael Vincent Hayden [Neither of them are left wing liberals] was put in charge to investigate the Benghazi Tragedy. They found no cover-up; no scandal; but recommended that greater steps be taken in securing our Embassies around the world. On Sunday May 12, Mr. Pickering was on Meet The Press and he scolded Congressman Darrell Isa [R] for politicizing the tragedy. Pickering told David Gregory there isn’t any cover-up or scandal.

 

On the matter of the Associated Press, this is not the first Administration to invoke National Security to find answers to leaks of Classified Information.

 

On the IRS targeting of Conservative Groups, Obama fired the Acting Commissioner and sought to overhaul areas that would prevent low level rouges, from repeating the disgusting behavior that a few carried out.

 

So, where is the smoking Gun? It is in the minds of the Republicans in Congress and the Republican Party that has lost their way and is trying to find a way out of the dismal path they have created for themselves. We must not fall for the Media’s Hype because at the end of the day, they are creating news with the truth or the untruth to satisfy their Corporate Owners.
