The Clinton email investigation is heating up. We have read different sources as to why this is happening. One of the best reasons we have heard so far is that there is no love lost between Obama and Hillary. Note therefore that both the justice department and the FBI are involved in this investigation. So what do you think? If Obama loved Hillary and wanted her to be the next president, don’t you think he would have stalled the dogs until after the election? Now here’s the scoop:
Hillary has little choice but to hand over her server to authorities since it now appears increasingly likely that someone on her staff violated federal laws regarding the handling of classified materials. On August 11, after extensive investigation, the Intelligence Community’s Inspector General reported to Congress that it had found several violations of security policy in Clinton’s personal emails.
The Inspector General assessed that Clinton’s emails included information that was highly classified—yet mislabeled as unclassified. That would be: TOP SECRET//SI//TK//NOFORN.
In English: SI refers to Special Intelligence, TK refers to Talent Keyhole indicating that the classified material was obtained via satellite and NOFORN means that the materials can only be shown to Americans, not to foreigners.
We’re certainly not gazing into a crystal ball, but it looks like Hillary’s in a heapa trouble.
And one more tidbit about Hillary. It’s no coincidence that Joe Biden is ‘considering’ a run at the presidency at this precise time. The troops are beginning to smell something with Hillary and will not be caught with, pardon us, their pants down.
So far Harper has dodged a bullet. In Nigel Wright’s first day of testimony, nothing he said undermined Stephen Harper’s insistence that he didn’t know someone else had repaid Duffy’s expenses. There is however, a big elephant in the room which will be addressed during cross examination. Today Wright was pressed further and still did not come forth that Harper ok’d and knew about the $90,000 payment.
Given that everyone knows Harper is a control freak and has what can only be termed a big case of FOMO (fear of missing out) and knew everything that transpired around him, when Wright was asked what he meant in a February 2013 email that Harper was ”good to go” with a repayment scheme that would have seen the Conservative Party repay Duffy’s expenses, Wright said he never told the prime minister where the money was coming from. Stay tuned on this soap opera. Ever go hiking in a National Park while on vacation somewhere to oh say ‘convene with nature’? Well, take note. It ain’t the grizzly bears that may do you in during your peaceful love-in with the trees. It is much more likely you won’t make it out of the park due to drowning in a lake or river.
Recently statistics were released as to who dies in nature parks. The first and most obvious feature: 75% more men than women. No need to explain that. Secondly, international visitors are high on the list. Here’s a bit of advice: If you are visiting a foreign country in the next while, stay out of those nature parks. Go visit a big building somewhere.
In case you didn’t know, sizing in women’s clothing is a farce and totally absurd. The same measurements taken in 1958 which equaled a size 12 now are size 6. Who exactly are they fooling? It is very obvious that American women are larger today than they were in the late 50’s.
As we sometimes use retail therapy as a relaxation technique, we can tell you without a doubt that the sizing is not realistic. Did you know that there is a size zero?? Yes Blanche, zero. How much does someone who takes size zero weigh? Is she still alive? The Chinese devalued their currency the yuan. So what exactly does this mean to us? Very simplified, here ya go:
1. When the yuan falls in value, goods imported to North America from China become cheaper. And China makes a lot of things from cars and computers to clothing and furniture. That’s good for us, but not for China.
2. Apple, for example, relies on China to make its iPhone and iPad. A stronger dollar compared to the yuan means any income generated in China loses value as it is sent back to North America. Similarly, manufacturing in North American firms becomes more expensive. All this could lead to lower earnings for our companies. And when earnings dry up, so do jobs.
The airline industry has a big problem. And guess what, anyone who flies on a plane has the same problem. Drones.
It’s not funny and extremely dangerous. As well, it is a disaster waiting to happen. So far people have just seen drones while landing. What happens if a drone gets sucked into one of the plane’s engines? Or hits the tail of the plane?
At least 138 pilots have reported spotting drones as high as 10,000 feet, the FAA said. If the FAA gets its way under new rules it proposed in February, no drones would be allowed to fly above 500 feet or over bystanders. The big problem is that these drone operators are very hard to find. Someone has to invent a way to find these dudes and punish them to the full extent of the law. That’s the only way others will be deterred.
