Now that the final fate of this whole investigation is being decided by the Wisconsin Supreme Court, it sounds an awful lot like Chisholm and Schmitz are trying to goad Walker into unsealing information the court might rule was gathered improperly, or at least score a few last points against Walker by making him look furtive by refusing to play their game.
On Monday morning, CNN posted what it described as an advanced look "Inside Clinton's Benghazi Emails," a body of correspondence that will soon be reviewed by Rep. Trey Gowdy and his House Select Committee on Benghazi. The CNN article is based on "several government officials" who anonymously characterized the emails.
The practical and spiritual benefits of work and independence are undervalued in America today. It is better for the economy, and for the heart and soul of the individual, to work for $8 an hour than to be paid $12 an hour by the government to do nothing.
A new Islamic State propaganda video claims the establishment of a "caliphate" in Yemen, displaying a unit of Islamic State troops conducting rifle drills in the desert near Yemen's capital city. The Islamic State has previously claimed responsibility for the monstrous suicide bombings at a pair of mosques in Sanaa.
Good charities are supposed to put at least 75 cents of every dollar collected toward their mission. To put it mildly, the Clinton Foundation's 6 cents on the dollar is well below that threshold.
"Some of President Obama’s email correspondence was swept up by Russian hackers last year in a breach of the White House’s unclassified computer system that was far more intrusive and worrisome than has been publicly acknowledged," The New York Times reported over the weekend, based on comments from "senior American officials briefed on the investigation."
Kurdish news agency Rudaw published an interview with American volunteer Jordan Matson over the weekend. Matson, a 28-year-old U.S. Army veteran from Wisconsin, said he had no combat or even overseas deployments with the Army, but he decided to travel to Syria and fight alongside the Kurdish YPG militia "because they stood by the United States for 10 years while my country was in Iraq," and he wanted to "repay that debt."

The Daily Post of Nigeria finds it unsurprising that Boko Haram leader Abubakar Shekau did not show up at Lincoln Center in New York to collect his award as one of Time magazine's "100 Most Influential People in the World."
On Friday night, Fox News aired a one-hour special on 'The Tangled Clinton Web," providing a fine summary of the scandals thus far spinning out of Peter Schweizer's new book Clinton Cash: The Untold Story of How and Why Foreign Governments and Businesses Helped Make Bill and Hillary Rich.
As information slowly trickled out about Russian hacker attacks on major government systems -- first the State Department, then the White House -- it seemed only a matter of time until the Pentagon admitted it had been hacked as well.
Hillary Clinton offers a compelling case, as if more evidence was needed, that her and Obama's brand of coercive liberalism is utterly incompatible with American ideals of religious freedom. She's rather directly stating that almighty government leaves very little room for individual conscience.
The hundredth anniversary of the Armenian genocide caused many world leaders to blink, notably President Barack Obama, who abandoned his old campaign promises--and fiery criticism of the Bush administration--by refusing to acknowledge it. Much of this moral cowardice emanates from Western politicians who wish to curry favor with the Turkish government. The Turks have been trying to erase the genocide from history, shortly after they gave up trying to erase the Armenians from history.
NBC News reports "the Statue of Liberty and Liberty Island were both being evacuated Friday afternoon after parks police received a report of a suspicious package."
It's Accountability Theater, and we get a fresh performance every time scandals explode in the Obama Administration, because they know the public has a short attention span, and their faithful media has an even shorter one.
Following the European Union's emergency summit on the Libyan refugee crisis, French President Francois Hollande announced he would seek a United Nations resolution authorizing the destruction of smuggling vessels.
The European Union's summit to deal with the Mediterranean refugee crisis is underway, and based on leaked documents, it appears a major component of the strategy will involve returning most migrants to their countries of origin.
The sectarian and factional chaos unleashed in Iraq by the ISIS invasion has neighboring tribes literally at each other's throats, according to a report by the Associated Press. Some Sunni tribes initially welcomed the Sunni extremists of ISIS when they rolled across the border, thinking they might help change the balance of power in Shiite-dominated Baghdad. After watching ISIS turn northern Iraq into a torture chamber, some members of the al-Lehib tribe changed their minds, and ended up fighting alongside Iraqi military forces and the Kurds.
"Ethiopian demonstrators hurled stones and scuffled with police during a rally by thousands in the capital on Wednesday after a video showed dozens of compatriots being shot and beheaded by Islamic State militants in Libya," according to eyewitnesses quoted by Reuters.
On Thursday, the White House announced the previously classified deaths of two hostages and two al-Qaeda leaders of American extraction, including the infamous Adam Gadahn, the terror gang's roly-poly American propagandist.
No, Hillary Clinton did not "forget" to report her millions in foreign cash to the IRS. It wasn't a "mistake" or an "oversight." The Clinton Foundation reported zero dollars in foreign cash, from 2010 through 2012 , even as it was pulling in tens of millions.
In the wake of a horrible tragedy in the Mediterranean that appears to have drowned over 800 refugees, the European Union called a summit, scheduled to begin on Thursday, to consider options for dealing with the Libyan crisis. According to a report at the Telegraph & Argus, experts are "warning the death toll could reach the tens of thousands as growing numbers of desperate migrants take to the waters in overcrowded and unseaworthy boats."
Hurriyet Daily News has an odd little story from the Uskudar district of Istanbul, where the mayor has constructed a miniature replica of Mecca, Islam's holy city. It is essentially a theme park of Mohammed's life and times, with replicas of "the Kaaba, Prophet Mohammad’s house, the Hira cave, the Sevr cave, the Muallaq Stone, the Zamzam well and an elephant statue."
On Earth Day, it's remarkable how much Green energy (of the political variety) has been pumped into the climate change movement. It gives people an easy way to assume intellectual superiority with virtually zero effort. It's the eternal crusade, the insoluble problem, the hypothesis that can never be falsified, so it provides sustainable fuel for countless rallies and political power grabs.
French authorities arrested a 24-year-old Algerian, allegedly planning an "imminent attack" on the nation's churches. The man, believed to be an aspiring ISIS jihadist "known to security services as having expressed a wish to travel to Syria," was arrested after shooting himself.
