Zero Hedge: “In a surprising reversal, what many thought was impossible, namely the State Department cracking down on its former head and Democratic presidential frontrunner, Hillary Clinton, seems all too possible following news that the State Department Inspector General audit has faulted Hillary Clinton, other secretaries of state for poorly managing electronic communications.

  • CLINTON’S FAILURE TO SURRENDER ALL EMAILS DEALING WITH DEPARTMENT BUSINESS BEFORE LEAVING GOVERNMENT VIOLATED POLICY -INSPECTOR GENERAL

The report says Clinton should have printed and saved her emails during her four years in office or surrendered her work-related correspondence immediately upon stepping down in February 2013. Instead, Clinton provided those records in December 2014, nearly two years after leaving office.”

Opinion: Hillary has repeatedly claimed that other government officials used personal emails. But no official  has ever been found to have diverted 100% of all government email traffic to a private server while purposely deleting 30,000 emails.

Making matters worse for Hillary, this afternoon Fox News reported: “The Romanian hacker who claimed he easily breached Hillary Clinton’s email server pleaded guilty Wednesday in federal court to two counts of computer hacking charges, as part of a deal with the Justice Department.”

It will be a sideshow to watch the Clinton slither out of this one.

 Zero Hedge: “That Hillary Clinton has – unaccountably – stood by her man for 40 years is her particular foible. But now she wants 320 million Americans to stand by him, too, by electing her President so she can make Bill the nation’s economic czar:

 During a speech in Kentucky Sunday she referred to “my husband, who I will put in charge of revitalizing the economy ’cause he knows what he’s doing.”

Actually, he doesn’t.

Opinion; Finally, the truth comes out about the Clinton prosperity. Not only did Billy boy not create the short-lived prosperity of the 90’s, but along with Jimmy Carter, Fed Chairman Alan Greenspan, and George Bush (43) laid the ground work for the housing bust of 2007-9.

The Community Re-investment (CRA) began the housing debacle that almost, and still may, since we have apparently learned nothing, destroy the global economy. The CRA which was signed by President Jimmy Carter and turbo-charged by Bill Clinton in 1995 continued into the Bush presidency and continues today.

Politicians eager for votes used the CRA to force banks to make (sub-prime) loans to people that could not pay them back. The mortgages were then packaged into government agency securities and sold to banks and retail investors with a 5-6%yield and implied AAA government backing.

As normal everyday Americans started acquiring 3 and 4 houses on adjustable rate mortgages, the bill eventually came due and the housing market collapsed.

Newsflash: Bill Clinton did NOT get the nation out of debt. When Clinton left office in 2000 the national debt was $5 trillion dollars. Thanks to a peace dividend during his presidency there was no deficit for those 8 years. For the first time since Ronald Reagan, the government, along with a Republican Congress, did not spend more than it collected in tax revenues.
