State Dept Whistleblower’s Emails Hacked and Deleted

state dept

Hillary Clinton’s State Department’s lethal incompetence may turn out to be exceeded only by its gross, stomach-turning corruption.

Last July, you may remember, the offices of a Dallas law firm representing Aurelia Fedenisn, a former investigator at the State Department’s Office of the Inspector General, were broken into. The firm Schulman & Mathias was the only suite burglarized in the high-rise office building, although an unlocked office nearby was left alone.

Foreign Policy reported:

Burglars stole three computers and broke into the firm’s file cabinets. But silver bars, video equipment and other valuables were left untouched, according to local Fox affiliate KDFW, which aired security camera footage of the suspected burglars entering and leaving the offices around the time of the incident.

“It’s a crazy, strange and suspicious situation,” attorney Cary Schulman told Foreign Policy.“It’s clear to me that it was somebody looking for information and not money. My most high-profile case right now is the Aurelia Fedenisn case, and I can’t think of any other case where someone would go to these great lengths to get our information.” 

Whistleblower, Aurelia Fedenisn, is  the former investigator at the State Department’s Office of the Inspector General who said she was threatened by Regime goons after turning over documents to Senator Ted Cruz, last June, alleging cover-ups of investigations involving State Dept. employees using drugs and prostitutes. Fedenisn claimed that senior State Department officials interfered with the investigations she was involved in, and then interfered with a report about the interference, causing it to be watered down. In other words, they tried to cover up wrongdoing  – and then tried to cover up the cover up.

The New York Post now reports that the personal e-mail account of a the Diplomatic Security Service Criminal Investigator who has been helping Fedenisn, was hacked and  “four years worth of messages — some detailing alleged wrongdoing at the agency — were deleted.”

The computer attack targeted the Gmail account of Diplomatic Security Service criminal investigator Richard Higbie, his lawyer, Cary Schulman, confirmed.

“They took all of his e-mails and then they deleted them all,” said Schulman. He said that he could not prove who was responsible for the hack job, but said the attack was “sophisticated” and called the targeting of Higbie “alarming.”

“Obviously, somebody is not happy with something he’s doing and wanted to get that information and also cause him an inability in the future to have ready access to that,” Schulman said.

The e-mails included evidence about misconduct by top officials at the department, communications with other potential whistleblowers there, and correspondence with members of Congress who are investigating the allegations, Schulman said.

They also include correspondence between Higbie and Schulman about legal strategy, the lawyer said.

Schulman said he could not provide details about the evidence deleted with the e-mails.

Higbie has asked the FBI in Dallas, where he lives, to investigate the hacking, which occurred this month.

Higbie played a key role in helping fellow whistleblower Aurelia Fedenisn, a former investigator for the department’s inspector general, reveal in June a pattern of alleged coverups by top department officials.

The alleged coverups included keeping quiet separate IG investigations that found that members of then-Secretary Hillary Rodham Clinton’s security detail had engaged hookers and that the Belgian ambassador had solicited underage prostitutes.

Schulman said, “We feel like we’re in a movie. It’s nuts. It makes us wonder . . . . maybe we’ve got something we don’t even realize or maybe they’re worried about something.”

Frances Martel at Big Government notes that Higbie has had significant disputes of the human resources variety with the State Department.

This year, he sued Hillary Clintonhas been antagonized for attempting to demote Higbie for not accepting assignments abroad while his daughter was battling a terminal illness, according to reporting by Fox News’ James Rosen (who has been antagonized by the White House some himself). According to Rosen’s report, some State Department officials may have even committed perjury while testifying for the State in that case.

Forces loyal to Hillary appear to be in the process of covering something pretty nasty up.

Operation “Clear the decks” is in full force.

CNN: Another Fast and Furious Gun Shows Up at Murder Scene in Mexico (Video)

One of the more disgraceful legacies of Eric Holder’s tenure as Obama’s Attorney General, is the increased bloodshed we will be dealing with in the years to come on both sides of the Southern border because of his  criminally stupid false flag Operation Fast and Furious..

Mediaite reported:

A CNN report broadcast on Tuesday revealed that guns released to Mexican gangs as part of the Fast and Furious “gun-walking” operation are continuing to show up at scenes of violence sound of the American border. According to the CNN report, the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives acknowledged that more weapons released into Mexico are likely to continue surfacing in the coming years.

 

During an interview in October of 2011, an inscensed Pinal County Sheriff Paul Babeu blasted Atty General Holder for engaging in what he called a cover-up and outright conspiracy which has “risen to the level of criminal.” He claimed that his deputies and American citizens in general will be facing the barrels of the Fast and Furious guns well into the future. “We couldn’t make this stuff up in our wildest nightmares,” he said.

“2000 semi automatic, fully automatic AK 47s, 50 caliber rifles, my deputies don’t even have this firepower in AZ and we’ve given it to these people we’re fighting, and now the Atty General of Mexico has been attacking the US publicly, demanding accountability, demanding criminal charges against the government. And President Obama who’s gone on this worldwide tour to apologize for America (which I’ve always disagreed with, and been embarrassed by) – the one apology he should be making is to Mexico. 200+ people according to their attorney general have been murdered – have been killed by these very weapons that Holder and his group of accomplices have handed to them. And now, Brian Terry a hero in our border patrol, who served as a police officer, who served in the US Marine Corps, was murdered on American soil, in my state, and you’re about to hear the Sheriffs out here unleash upon Eric Holder. We asked for help to fight against the cartels, to fight illegal immigration, secure the border, and what we got back was a lawsuit, to sue our state, to fight us for  enforcing the law – the very job that we’re sworn to do – put up billboard signs in my county warning American citizens that it’s not safe to travel because of drug cartels, and now they’ve armed the very enemy we’re fighting…This for us is more than personal — our deputies, our citizens are going to be facing in the future the barrels of guns that our own government has given to criminals. We couldn’t make this stuff up in our wildest nightmares.”

He went on, “this clearly was a plot by our government (I’ve never been one to buy into conspiracies – but this is as clear as day to me) It’s as clear as day to me this was an effort by Barack Obama, Eric Holder and Janet Napolitano to make an aggressive assault against 2nd Amendment rights to bear arms…”

Attention Joy Reid: The Knockout Game Is A Real Trend That Deserves Our Attention

head-in-the-sand

According to MSNBC’s Joy Reid, the “Knockout Game” is a non- story that  conservatives are going  “absolutely ballistic” about in order “to stoke issues of race.” The segment in which she made the comments was hosted by Al Sharpton, who was asking a panel of MSNBC regulars what they thought was  the most overrated story of the year.

JOY REID, MSNBC CONTRIBUTOR: Got to say the knockout game. Two videos that were in about a hundred different stories, no trend anyone could discern, but the right went absolutely ballistic over it because they want to stoke issues of race.

Two videos? No discernable trend? Really lady?

The St. Louis CBS affiliate KMOV would like to put her to some knowledge:

“One-hitter quitter,” “knock em’ and drop em,” “point em’ out and knock ‘em out” are all names for a disturbing trend now drawing concern nationwide.

In Pittsburgh, a teacher was punched so hard he collapsed head first into the concrete curb. A man in Brooklyn was also knocked unconscious. And even women are being attacked.

There have been seven recent cases in New York City alone. And the game has turned fatal in at least four documented attacks—in Syracuse, N.Y.; St. Louis; Chicago; and Hoboken, N.J., site of the latest fatal attack.

Boys—seen in video from a security camera after the incident—have been charged with the murder. They are just 13 and 14 years old.

Actually the CBS report is over a month old – it’s dated. There have been many knockout game attacks since then. At least three in just the past week.

The Knockout game isn’t even a new trend. It’s been going on for years. In July of  2011 The American Thinker published a piece entitled, The Knockout Game: Racial Violence and the Conspicuous Silence of the Media:

Most Americans have heard of recent violent  “flash mobs,” which are the bands of black teens that attack mostly white victims and white businesses, as even the New York Times once noted.

But the flash mobs, which are more accurately called “race riots” or “racial mob violence,” are not the only interesting topic to cover in our national conversation about race.  There is also the “knockout game,” which is stunning in its brutal simplicity and stark racial significance.

The knockout game involves “unprovoked attacks on innocent bystanders,” according to police who have had to deal with it.  A retired officer explained, “Normally it was a group of black males, one of which would strike him as hard as he could in the face, attempting to knock him out with one punch,” says retired Sgt. Don Pizzo.  The victims are typically not robbed, but simply punched with no provocation.  Such attacks have been reported in Illinois, Massachusetts, Missouri, and New Jersey.

***

Sgt. Pizzo noted that the attacks fit a pattern: “black attackers on a white victim — and the victim was often an older person walking alone.”  In a thorough and sensible piece on the subject in a local arts and entertainment magazine, eight of the victims interviewed were white, one was black, and one was Latino.  All of the attackers, or “players,” were black.  Some witnesses claim that they have white relatives who play the game and that therefore the game is not a racial issue.  But anyone who reviews the reporting — when race is revealed, at least — will see that the attackers are predominantly if not exclusively black.

As one player of the game says, “[w]e used to walk to where a lot of people be at and hit ’em. If one of the homeboys didn’t knock him out, then the other would come. Whoever knock him out would be king.”

Why would one of the racialist regulars at MSNBC want to downplay this disturbing trend? Why – instead of sending a message strongly condemning it, like her colleague Al Sharpton  – would she bury her head in the sand and pretend it isn’t happening?

Yes, even Al Sharpton, last month, condemned what he termed “a crisis” in a strongly worded piece at Huffington Post:

There is nothing funny or even remotely entertaining about attacking innocents walking down the street. This is not a “game”; it is inhumane behavior that has no place in our country or the world.

He said, “silence is akin to tacit acceptance” and announced that he would be meeting with  “other leaders to address our next moves regarding this crisis.”

As one who has fought for greater civil rights for all, I cannot watch this travesty unfold. We can discuss the many factors that may lead to this sort of destructive behavior, whether it be poverty, unemployment, etc., but at the end of the day, there is no excuse ever to bestow violence on others. There is no justification for brutally punching or attacking a person in this manner. These kids must be held accountable, and then they must receive the right guidance and mentorship to halt any further damage. In our own communities, we must work harder to spot disastrous behavior and intervene before anything horrific like these attacks take place.

But he was silent when Joy Reid made her ignorant remarks downplaying what he knows to be a “horrific” nationwide trend.

Leftism Is A Mental Disorder…Part 965

How else can one explain the MSNBC segment in which Melissa Harris Perry and pals mocked and belittled the Romneys and their black adoptive grandchild as seen in in the clip below?

This makes absolutely no sense to me – it’s like these people are from another planet.

First of all – MHP doesn’t get off the hook here, just because she initially had a nice thing to say about the photo –  “pretty cute – everyone loves a baby picture.” So why did she drag the picture out, and then ask her panel for “captions”? Notice how she held her head down as she did so –  almost as if she was slightly ashamed of herself for  inviting her guests to race-bait the Romneys for having the gall to have black member of the family. Was a little voice in her head (the sane one) telling her knock it off?

The photo in question isn’t “funny”. It isn’t an “awkward family photo” as seen in the board game or on the web. We’ve all seen those –  and you know what? There’s nothing wrong with laughing at something that is truly goofy.

But the Romney family photo is not that. It’s a sweet photo of an attractive couple with lots of  grandkids. One of them happens to be black.

Are mixed race families still such a novelty to lefties, that they don’t know how to handle it when they see one? Seriously? Or does the fact that a Republican adopted a black baby seem inappropriate and mock-worthy to them? I’m really trying to understand…

“One of these things is not like the other,” sang actress Pia Glenn, who was later surprised that some people didn’t see the humor. The “comedian” on the panel,  Dean Obeidallah said the photo “really sums up the diversity of the Republican party.” He embarrassed himself further when he later “apologized” to the baby on Twitter, “for being used as a prop in a photo.”

What?

I don’t even know what to say to someone who thinks that Republicans  only adopt  black babies so they can use them as props.  How disordered is this man’s thinking that he would say such an idiotic thing? It’s deranged.

The Right Scoop‘s Caleb Howe torched MSNBC for persisting in the tired stereotype of the Republican Party being devoid of black people…

“Ah the never tired accusation, borrowed from every single left-wing blog and talking head during every gathering of two or more (or fewer) Republicans: He’s not a child adopted by loving parents prepared to provide him with a better life in keeping with the family’s values,” he wrote. “Nope. He’s just a token. A punchline, not a person. But it’s funny, because Republicans are racist, see? So it’s all fine!”

I find myself appalled and damn near nauseated nearly every time I catch a clip from this God-forsaken network. What is wrong with these people? And who in their right mind can watch their toxic, racialist garbage day in and day out and not cringe with shame and embarrassment?

You have to be mentally disordered, frankly. As I’ve said before – leftism really is a mental disorder.

And now The Daily Mail is on it: Outrage as MSNBC panelists make Mitt Romney’s adopted black grandchild the punchline of a joke

A Sunday episode of MSNBC’s political commentary show Melissa Harris-Perry has sparked outrage because of a segment that turned Mitt Romney’s adopted black grandson into the butt of a political joke.

Host Harris-Perry stirred the pot by displaying a giant photo of Mitt Romney’s extended family Christmas photo to a panel of liberal pundits and comedians.

‘It really sums up the diversity of the Republican party, the RNC. At the convention, they find the one black person,’ joked Dean Obeidallah, just one of the uncouth digs the group made at the expense of Kieran Romney.

UPDATE:

Apologies Apologies…

Dean Obeidallah offers a self-serving apology to the Romneys (but not the fuming wingnuts) in an article at The Daily Beast. And he didn’t mention his disgusting tweet about the Romney’s using the baby as a prop.

Melissa Harris-Perry also apologized Tuesday.

According to some of the commenters at The Daily Beast, conservatives are humor-impaired. Because  Obeidallah’s “joke” was uproariously funny, or something. Look, there’s a reason nobody’s heard of this comedian before. He’s not funny. We get the “joke”, okay. Romney is white and his grandson isn’t. There aren’t as many blacks in the Republican party as there are the Democrat party. We’re not laughing because it wasn’t funny. Promulgating tired stereotypes about the GOP’s  “lack of diversity” isn’t funny. It’s pathetic.

A commenter at NRO put his finger on why conservatives are so aghast: “It’s hard to imagine how someone could hate so much to think racist jokes about an adopted child are funny. This is the kind of evil that, in a different context, commits atrocities.”

It’s scary sad that many of their viewers are defending the repellant segment.

I challenge MSMBC to get through one day – one entire day – without obsessing about race. I have a dream of a colorblind MSNBC- that only talks about race when it’s legitimately in the news – like the horrible knock-out game attacks that keep happening.

Or is that the kind of story the racialists at MSNBC find too inconvenient to cover?

Video: Trey Gowdy Congratulates The NY Times – ‘It Only Took Them 15 Months To Figure Out How To Spell Benghazi’

I was hoping that Congressman Trey Gowdy would be asked to weigh in on the NY Times’ now widely panned Benghazi report. The South Carolina spitfire was a guest on Fox’s On the Record with fill-in host, Dana Perino, and he did not disappoint.

Asked to comment on the report, Gowdy professed, “I want to congratulate the New York Times.  It only took them 15 months to figure out how to spell Benghazi – so maybe in the next 15 months, their reporting will catch up with the truth.”

Continuing, he said, “I’ll tell you two things they got wrong. Number one – the video was translated into Arabic in early September of 2012….What in the world explains the violence in Benghazi prior to the video being translated and released? Our consulate was attacked way before the video was released. The British Ambassador was almost assassinated way before the video was released…the international Red Cross was attacked twice in Benghazi – well before this video was ever released. So if the video was really the impetus for the violence, what in the world explains the violence prior to the release of the video?

In respect to al Qaeda, he noted that “whether it was al Qaeda or a subsidiary, or a holding company, or a limited partnership – to quote Hillary Clinton – what difference does it make?! Who cares whether it was al Qaeda proper or a subsidiary? Four Americans are dead, and it wasn’t a spontaneous reaction to a video – it was planned.”

Gowdy also asked the question many House Republicans have been wondering in light of the deteriorating security situation in Benghazi prior to the attack, “why were we even there? Why was Chris Stevens in Benghazi, that night?”

He told Perino that he’s read the NY Times report six times. “I want you to read it six times and tell me if you can tell who the Secretary of State was when Benghazi happened. Because her name wasn’t mentioned a single. solitary. time. in this exhaustive NY Times piece – not once.”

When Perino noted that lots of people are assuming that the article was meant to “clear the decks” for Hillary so she won’t have to deal with Benghazi as a campaign issue, Gowdy reacted with mock consternation, “oh heavens no – that couldn’t possibly have been their motivation – could it be?!”

On Monday night’s Special Report, Charles Krauthammer said  the NY Times Benghazi report was undeniably about protecting Dems, and Hillary – “obviously a political move.”
