Second IT Company Datto Inc. Agrees to Give Clinton’s Server Data to FBI


DRIP, DRIP, DRIP … And the Hillary Clinton email/private server scandal keeps on coming. Just when you thought there was only one IT company involved in Hillary Clinton’s email server, there now appears to be another. Datto Inc., an IT company based in Norwalk, CT, has become the second firm to get caught up in the Hillary email/server scandal. The Connecticut based company to provide Hillary’s server data to the FBI. Hmm, remember when it was said that Hillary’s server was wiped/scrubbed clean? Not so fast. As Doug Powers at Michelle opines, maybe Val the bartender can explain to Hillary how her secure emails got in the Cloud.

 … So you see, data is stored in the Cloud

Hillary Clinton hired a Connecticut company to back up her emails on a “cloud” storage system, and her lawyers have agreed to turn whatever it contains over to the FBI, a personal familiar with the situation said Tuesday.

The disclosure came as a Republican Senate committee chairman, Wisconsin Sen. Ron Johnson, also asked the firm to turn over to the committee copies of any Clinton emails still in its possession.

There were conflicting accounts as to whether the development could lead to recovery of any of Clinton’s more than 31,000 personal emails, which she said she deleted from her private server upon turning over her work-related emails to the State Department, at its request, in December 2014.

Datto Inc., based in Norwalk, Conn., became the second data storage firm to become entangled in the inquiry into Clinton’s unusual email arrangement, which has sparked a furor that has dogged her campaign. In August, Clinton and the firm that had managed her server since June 2013, Colorado-based Platte River Networks, agreed to surrender it for examination by the FBI.

On Friday, Clinton’s attorney, David Kendall, and Platte River agreed to allow Datto to turn over the data from the backup server to the FBI, said the person familiar with Datto’s storage, who spoke on condition of anonymity because of the sensitivity of the matter.

Oh what a tangled web we weave, when we practice to deceive. But of course Hillary Clinton will tell you that she is the most transparent individual ever. More from McClatchy DC.

Several weeks ago, Platte River employees discovered that her private server was syncing with an offsite Datto server, he said

When Datto acknowledged that was the case, a Platte River employee replied in an email: “This is a problem.”

Johnson said that “Datto apparently possessed a backup of the server’s contents since June 2013.”

Upon that discovery, Platte River “directed Datto to not delete the saved data and worked with Datto to find a way to move the saved information . . . back to Secretary Clinton’s private server.”

The letter also noted that Platte River employees were directed to reduce the amount of email data being stored with each backup. Late this summer, Johnson wrote, a Platte River employee took note of this change and inquired whether the company could search its archives for an email from Clinton Executive Service Corp. directing such a reduction in October or November 2014 and then again around February, advising Platte River to save only emails sent during the most recent 30 days.

Those reductions would have occurred after the State Department requested that Clinton turn over her emails.

City of New York Orders Al Sharpton’s Daughter (Dominique Sharpton) to Save Incriminating Hiking Pics & Not to Delete Instagram Bali Hiking Photos

RUT-ROH, Some one is in trouble …

As reported at the NY Post, NYC attorney have warned Dominique Sharpton, the daughter of Rev. Al Sharpton, not to destroy or delete any pics on her Instagram account, like the ones that show her hiking in Bali. The 28 year old Sharpton is suing NYC for $5 million claiming she fell in the street and sprained her ankle that supposedly left her “severely injured, bruised and wounded”. Dominique’s lawsuit states she “still suffers and will continue to suffer for some time physical pain and bodily injuries;” however, she stupidly posted hiking pics on her Instagram account showing her hiking in atop an Indonesian mountain and making comments regarding how tough the hikes were. CAN YOU SAY BUSTED!!!

City lawyers warned Dominique Sharpton not to delete Instagram photos like this one atop an Indonesian mountain — where she trekked while claiming in a lawsuit that she has “permanent” ­injuries.

The city Law Department sent Rev. Al’s daughter a letter telling her to preserve all of the damning evidence that she posted on her ­social-media accounts.

The warning comes after The Post revealed that Dominique Sharpton has been globe-trotting despite her May 7 suit that says she will never fully recover from a sprained ankle she suffered on an uneven Soho street.


Not Looking Good For Brian Willaims … NBC News Finds Brian Williams Embellished At Least 11 Times

As Spinal Tap’s Nigel Tufnel explains about amps and Brian Williams embellishments, this one goes to eleven!!!

When will Brian Williams return to NBC News, if ever? Back in February, NBC News suspended Brian Williams for 6 months without pay for his his faux Iraq war news story in 2003. It only took NBC News more than a decade to get to the bottom of this situation and Williams may never have been suspended at all if he had just shut his trap and stopped telling the false story. However, the NBC internal investigation of their news anchor has turned up at least 11 instances in which Williams publicly embellished details of his reporting exploits. 11!!! Good grief, the New York Times is reporting that NBC is looking into whether Williams fibbed about his reporting during Egypt’s Arab Spring.

Brian Williams’ suspension ends in August; however, I will find it impossible to believe that they could ever bring him back. All a news anchor has is their credibility to report the news and with 11 embellishments to his credit, Williams news cred is shot.


A months-long internal investigation of Brian Williams by NBC News has turned up 11 instances in which the anchorman publicly embellished details of his reporting exploits, according to a person familiar with details of the probe.

NBC undertook the examination of Williams’ statement after he apologized in early February for saying on “NBC Nightly News” that a military helicopter in which he was traveling at the start of the Iraq War had been damaged by rocket fire. His account was challenged by soldiers who were on the flight, leading to a furor that prompted NBC to suspend Williams for six months without pay and to investigate other statements he’s made.

The Iraq claim was one of the 11 suspect statements that a team of NBC News journalists has identified during the inquiry, said the individual, who asked not to be identified because he isn’t authorized to talk about an internal matter.

The investigators, led by NBC News senior executive producer Richard Esposito, have also raised doubts about Williams’ comments about his experiences covering Israel’s military action against Hezbollah in Lebanon in 2006. In an interview with a student-run television station at Fairfield University in Connecticut in 2007, Williams said he saw rockets passing “just beneath” the Israel helicopter in which he was traveling. But Williams gave a less harrowing account of the same trip in an NBC News blog a year earlier

NY Times Journalist Caught the Clinton Foundation Red-Handed in a Lie About a Meeting Between former President Bill Clinton and Kazatomprom, a Kazakhstan State-Owned Nuclear Holding Company

LIARS: If you actually care about America, you will watch the video below that shows of former President Bill Clinton and Secretary of State Hillary Clinton Lied and sold out our country to the Russians …

How big was the New York Times story on Bill and Hillary Clinton and the uranium deal, bigger than you think. If Hillary Clinton and the Clinton’s are allowed to get away with this then this country is lost forever. At some point Americans have to actually care that those in power and have the ultimate power like president of the United States actually have an ounce of decency, credibility and ethics. The individual who holds the highest office in the land can’t be a complete and total liar and hide behind a gender card saying what difference does it make. When is enough, enough?

When Hillary Clinton announced that she was going to run for president in 2016, she stated, “Everyday Americans need a champion, and I want to be that champion.” Clinton went on to further say, “Americans have fought their way back from tough economic times, but the deck is still stacked in favor of those at the top.” AMERICA, WAKE THE HELL UP … HILLARY CLINTON IS THAT PERSON AT THE TOP THAT THE DECK IS STACKED IN FAVOR OF!!! Hillary Clinton and Bill Clinton have sold America out so that they could become rich, breaking every law that the so-called people she wants to champion would have been arrested and thrown in jail. America, we are no longer talking about Bill lied about sex with an intern … THESE LIES ARE MUCH, MUCH INSIDIOUS.

Fox News: Millions To Clinton Foundation In Exchange For Russian Uranium Deal

The Blaze:

But, as New York Times reporter Jo Becker reported, such a deal would require review by the U.S. government. That’s where Frank Giustra, a Canadian business executive and founder of the company that would become Uranium One, entered the picture.

Giustra reportedly set up a meeting between Kazatomprom officials and Bill Clinton himself — at the former president’s home in Chappaqua, New York.

Giustra has close ties to Bill Clinton and is a major donor to the Clinton Foundation. The two even flew to Kazakhstan together when Giustra’s company landed a lucrative deal to secure uranium mines there.

Here’s where the lie comes in.

Becker told Fox News’ Bret Baier that when she first asked a Clinton Foundation spokesman and Giustra about the meeting, they both said no such meeting ever took place. However, when she informed them that the then-head of Kazatomprom not only told her that the meeting had taken place, but also showed her a picture of himself with Clinton at the Chappaqua home proudly displayed in his office, they were forced to admit the meeting occurred.

In 2007, Toshiba “sold a 10 percent stake in U.S. nuclear power plant builder Westinghouse,” Reuters reported.

During Hillary Clinton’s tenure at the U.S. State Department, foreign governments and businesses donated tens of millions of dollars to the Clinton Foundation and paid millions in speaker fees to former President Clinton. Some of those same players then had business or policy issues later land on then-Secretary of State Clinton’s desk.

In addition to concerns about ethics of such practices, Clinton failed to disclose millions of dollars in big foreign donations to her husband’s foundation, which she had previously vowed to do. It was also reported that the Clinton Foundation is redoing five years worth of tax returns after a review by Reuters found several errors.

That’s the gist of the bombshell reports, based on Peter Schweizer’s new book, “Clinton Cash,” that emerged on Thursday.

Megan Murphy on MSNBC … Hillary Clinton “Cruised Right On By” Everyday Iowans Waiting To Meet Her” Including Elderly People in Wheel Chairs


First the Hillary Clinton’s Scoobie van is parked in a handicapped parking spot illegally and now she cruises right past people, some in wheelchairs that were there to meet her in Iowa. Hillary’s meet and greet the little people turns out to be total BS as she wound up driving right by the so-called every day Americans that she told us all that she wanted to meet on this van tour. Imagine that, Hillary lied again. Just curious, how is Hillary Clinton supposed to be the champion of the common folk if she cant find time to meet with them?

Washington Free Beacon – Reporter: Hillary’s Van Drove Past Elderly People in Wheelchairs Waiting to Talk to Her.

Hillary Clinton wants to meet “everyday Americans” so badly, she drove right past many waiting in front of her event in Iowa.

In the now-viral clip of reporters chasing after Clinton’s “Scooby” van, the Clinton camp drove to the back entrance, surprising both reporters and many of her supporters waiting to get a glimpse of the candidate.

“I think what you don’t see in that clip, which is one of the most surprising things is there were actually a ton of people waiting for her at the front of that college,” said Financial Times reporter Megan Murphy. “There were elderly people in wheelchairs, there were people — and they just cruised right on by to the back.”

The news that Clinton symbolically drove past ordinary voters while driving their own “everyday Americans” to the event will certainly reflect poorly on the campaign. The incident draws parallels to the man Clinton hopes to succeed in the Oval Office when he drove past disabled veterans in Phoenix.

Jonathon Gruber Backtracks on His “Americans are Stupid” Comments … But He Has Said it On More Than One Occasion

MSNBC still carrying the water for Barack Obama and Obamacare …

Suddenly MIT professor Jonathan Gruber and the architect of Obamacare is in full spin and CYA mode as he backtracks from his comments that were just made public to all. Gruber stated that Obamacare was a lie, a fraud and the American people were purposely deceived in order to pass the law. Gruber also called the American people stupid. Hmm, isn’t this what Conservatives had said for years? Now Gruber is saying his comments were inappropriate. There is just one problem,Gruber made  last these American voter are “stupid” remarks on more than one occasion. Watch the video from The Kelly Files via The Blaze, link HERE, to video of more remarks made by Gruber and Megyn Kelly’s less than willingness to believe him. It begins at the 2:00 mark of the video that Gruber has made this sane remark on more than one occasion. Off the cuff, eh?

Sorry, but he hardly to be seems to be speaking off the cuff. Jonathan Gruber is a very well-spoken and intelligent man. He is also a liberal who has a low opinion of the masses and would do anything to deceive then in order to get Obamacare passed. Gruber regrets making the America voters are stupid comments. Now, he regrets having it be made public. What, is Jonathan Gruber blaming his remarks on a spontaneous  thought in his head, when he says he was speaking off the cuff? C’MON MAN!!!

Interestingly enough, he would not appear on FOX News to get a grilling and not just a softball interview on MSLSD.


This bill was written in a tortured way to make sure CBO did not score the mandate as taxes. If [Congressional Budget Office] scored the mandate as taxes, the bill dies. Okay, so it’s written to do that. In terms of risk-rated subsidies, if you had a law which said that healthy people are going to pay in -– you made explicit that healthy people pay in and sick people get money — it would not have passed… Lack of transparency is a huge political advantage. And basically, call it the stupidity of the American voter, or whatever, but basically that was really, really critical for the thing to pass. And it’s the second-best argument. Look, I wish Mark was right that we could make it all transparent, but I’d rather have this law than not.

The Triple Crown of Lying … Fact Fact Checker Gives Barack Obama & Minions More Pinnochio’s for His Lame ISIS, JV Team’ Explanation


Fact gives Barack Obama more “Pinocchio’s” for his lame effort in trying to say that he was not referring to ISIS when he was making the past comparison that ISIS was like a “jayvee” terror team. WHAT OBAMA LIE? Say it isn’t so. Obama and his minions have won the “triple crown” of lying as Fack, Politifact and the WAPO Fact Checker all say … YOU LIE.  I guess it all depended on that is, is … oh sorry, ISIS is. Barack Obama is simply incapable of telling the truth.

Meet the Press transcript.

Todd: Long way, long way from when you described them as a JV team.
Obama: Well, I –
Todd: Was that bad intelligence or your misjudgment?
Obama: Keep — keep — keep in mind I wasn’t specifically referring to ISIL. I’ve said that, regionally, there were a whole series of organizations that were focused primarily locally. Weren’t focused on homeland, because I think a lot of us, when we think about terrorism, the model is Osama bin Laden and 9/11. And the point that I was –
Todd: You don’t believe these people –
Obama: Not yet. But they — they can evolve. And I was very specific at that time. What I said was, not every regional terrorist organization is automatically a threat to us that would call for a major offensive. Our goal should not be to think that we can occupy every country where there’s a terrorist organization.

Barack Obama – The Lying King

During Obama’s Meet the Press interview Sunday with new host Chuck Todd, the president essentially gave the same explanation Earnest previously gave about the JV remark published in the New Yorker in January.

“Keep in mind I wasn’t specifically referring to (Islamic State). I’ve said that, regionally, there were a whole series of organizations that were focused primarily locally, weren’t focused on homeland, because I think a lot of us, when we think about terrorism, the model is Osama bin Laden and 9/11,” Obama told Todd. issued a verdict Monday afternoon that like others was based on the transcript from New Yorker reporter Davide Remnick’s interview with Obama.

“The president can make the case that he wasn’t referring only to ISIS when he made his remark about a junior varsity team. But he cannot say that he ‘wasn’t specifically referring to ISIL,’ because The New Yorker article and the transcript of the interview make it clear that the context of the president’s remark included ISIS,” says.

From The Blaze:

STRIKE ONE: Fack Check. org

STRIKE TWO: PolitiFact ranked Obama’s Meet the Press statement as “false.” That’s slightly better than the worst ranking the site can give: “pants on fire.”

STRIKE THREE:  Washington Post Fact Checker gave Earnest its worst ranking.

#YOU LIE!!! Obama Administration’s Claim that Lois Lerner’s Emails Were Lost in Computer Crash, What a Crock of $hit


The IRS stated on Friday that they lost and cannot locate many of Lois Lerner’s emails prior to 2011 because her computer crashed that year. Image that, what a coincidence. House Oversight Committee chairman Darrell Issa (R-CA) suggesting the Obama administration is being dishonest by saying these emails are lost stating, “Isn’t it convenient for the Obama Administration that the IRS now says it has suddenly realized it lost Lois Lerner’s emails requested by Congress and promised by Commissioner John Koskinen?” Ya think? Issa went on to comment,  “Do they really expect the American people to believe that, after having withheld these emails for a year, they’re just now realizing the most critical time period is missing?” WHAT A JOKE. Imagine telling the IRS that you lost the necessary paperwork in a computer crash that they are requiring, which is more plausible than an email.

So let’s understand this … the government & NSA has a right to look at your emails, but some how they can’t retain their own? Who honestly believes this bullshit?

Liar, Liar – The Castaways

Liar, liar, pants on fire
Your nose is longer than a telephone wire

Ask me, baby, why I’m sad
You’ve been out all night, know you’ve been bad
Don’t tell me different, know it’s a lie
Come kill me, honey, see how I cry

The Internal Revenue Service says it has lost a trove of emails to and from a central figure in the agency’s tea party controversy.

The IRS told congressional investigators Friday it cannot locate many of Lois Lerner’s emails prior to 2011 because her computer crashed that year. Lerner headed the IRS division that processed applications for tax-exempt status.

The IRS acknowledged last year that agents had improperly scrutinized applications for tax-exempt status by tea party and other conservative groups.

“The fact that I am just learning about this, over a year into the investigation, is completely unacceptable and now calls into question the credibility of the IRS’s response to congressional inquiries,” said Rep. Dave Camp, R-Mich., chairman of the House Ways and Means Committee. “There needs to be an immediate investigation and forensic audit by Department of Justice as well as the inspector general.”

The Ways and Means Committee is one of three congressional committees investigating the IRS over its handling of tea party applications from 2010 to 2012. The Justice Department and the IRS inspector general are also investigating.

House Oversight Committee chairman Darrell Issa, R-Calif., is suggesting the Obama administration is being dishonest by saying these emails are lost.

Obama_IRS scandal

I could not agree more with Powerline and their post, Obama Administration’s Claim that Lois Lerner’s Emails Are “Lost” Is Ludicrous. Actually, it is beyond ludicrous, it is an outright lie. Who honestly thinks that emails are kept on your hard drive? They are collected and saved on an email server that has a redundancy of backups. Do they really think we are that stupid? If Lois Lerner’s emails really do not exist, then some one would have had to gone to the email servers and the back up tapes and purposely deleted them. There is a thing in corporate America and government called “DRE”. That is short for “Disaster Recovery Exercises”. All do it to prepare for catastrophic events like fires, floods, earthquakes, hurricanes, etc to ensure that there is no data lost in case of a disaster and that business can get back up and running ASAP. I should know, I have participated in them for the past 4 years to ensure such efforts are effective. Guess what … emails are apart of that to check list.

The Obama administration’s claim that the IRS has “lost” two years of Lois Lerner’s emails is implausible to anyone who understands how email systems work. This is what the administration said:

The IRS told congressional investigators Friday it cannot locate many of Lois Lerner’s emails prior to 2011 because her computer crashed that year.

This statement, on its face, is silly. Emails are collected on email servers. Each user (e.g., Lois Lerner) has an account on an email server, where that person’s emails are collected. It is common for emails to be deleted from the user’s own desktop or laptop computer, but no one worries about that. When it is time to collect emails–something I do all the time in my law practice–you go to the email server and pull out the user’s entire account. A crash of the user’s computer is irrelevant and will not cause emails to be “lost.”

Further, emails are universally backed up in some other medium, often electronic tape, for long-term storage. Thus, even if an email server is destroyed, or all emails are deleted from a server after a specified length of time, the emails are still recoverable from back-up storage media.

IRS_Lerner_emails lost

These people are nothing but liars. The IRS would destroy you if you ever came back and said, you did not have the data they are looking for because it is lost. Now that’s what they are claiming … BS!!! This is simply a coverup because it is obviously that there are damning emails that connect the IRS’s Lois Lerner to the Obama White House. If this is the way that government agencies like the IRS are going to conduct themselves and act in a political manner against Americans, no matter if they are on the right or the left, then they must be dismantled and be ended permanently … if a government agency is going to act this rogue, they need to be abolished.

6 in 10 American Voters Believe Barack Obama Lies to the Country … #YOU LIE

Barack Obama, the Liar in Chief … There is a reason he is called the Lion Lying King.

According to a recent Fox News Poll, 6 in 10 American voters believe that President Barack Obama lies to the country on important issues most or some of the time. Just 6 in 10? Of course for many of us we can put one and one together and understand that Obama has been lying for years. However, what is most interesting from this poll is the number of Obama/Democrat key constituents that thinks he lies “most of the time” includes 13% of Democrats, 12% of blacks, 16% of liberals, 31%  of unmarried women and 34%  of those under age 30. OUCH!!!

Full poll results can be read HERE.


About six in ten American voters think Barack Obama lies to the country on important matters some or most of the time, according to a Fox News poll released Wednesday.

Thirty-seven percent think Obama lies “most of the time,” while another 24 percent say he lies “some of the time.” Twenty percent of voters say “only now and then” and 15 percent “never.”

President Obama has been accused by political opponents and media fact-checkers alike of telling falsehoods.  Frequently cited: His repeated claim that under Obamacare “If you like your plan, you can keep it” and his insistence that “the day after Benghazi happened, I acknowledged that this was an act of terrorism.”

Of course Obama’s biggest lie that will affect nearly every individual in the United States was his shameful lies regarding Obamacare and that, “If you like your plan, you can keep it” In fact it garnered him the Politfact 2013 Lie of the Year.  However, the lies have been so plentiful that it is almost impossible to list them. But with so many scandals during his presidency like Fast & Furious, Benghazi-gate and ITS-gate to name a few, are we really to believe that Barack Obama had no knowledge what was really going on? If his answer is he knew nothing, that would be a lie.

It would appear that Republican South Carolina Rep. Joe Wilson was on to something when he yelled out, “you lie,” during Obama’s 2010 State of the Union Address.

WAPO-ABC News Poll: Barack Obama Job Approval Rating 55% Disapprove, 43% Approve … He’s Fallen & He Can’t Get Up!!!

2013 is not over yet and neither are President Barack Obama’s job approval numbers falling … He’s Fallen and he can’t Get Up!!!

The Emperor has no close, and no approval ratings either. The most recent WAPO-ABC News poll is out and it is not good news for Barack Obama or Democrats. Across the board on key issues that are important to Americans like the economy, handling the countries problems and trustworthiness, Obama has either lost significant ground or the lead all-together to the GOP. Obama’s polling numbers are in disarray because the American people, who once gave him the benefit of the doubt, now see that he cannot be trusted. Obama has wasted all this time and lied about Obamacare, rather than focusing on the economy and jobs as he had promised as well.

Check out the comparisons from just a year ago … Had America known now what they should have been made aware of in 2012, Barack Obama would have lost the 2012 presidential election in a landslide.  Obama can thank his lucky stars that the US Constitution does not provide for recall elections for the president.

Poll_WAPO_ABC 12172013

Pic- Washington Post, read full story HERE

President Obama is ending his fifth year in office matching the worst public approval ratings of his presidency, with record numbers of Americans saying they disapprove of his job performance and his once-hefty advantages over Republicans in Congress eroded in many areas, according to a new Washington Post-ABC News poll.

His position is all the more striking when compared with his standing a year ago, as he was preparing for his second inauguration after a solid reelection victory. That high note proved fleeting as the president faced a series of setbacks, culminating in the botched rollout of his Affordable Care Act two months ago.

Obama’s standing is of particular concern to congressional Democrats as they look to next year’s midterm elections. Parties that control the White House suffer — sometimes significantly — in midterm campaigns when the president’s approval rating is below 50 percent.

On several key measures, Obama has lost significant ground to his Republican opponents in Congress. On the question of who is seen as better able to handle the country’s main problems, Obama and Republicans are tied at 41 percent. A year ago, the president’s advantage was 15 points and at this stage in 2010 it was still five points.

Obama also has lost the lead he enjoyed on who could better deal with the economy. Today Republicans are at 45 percent to Obama’s 41 percent.

Any lead that Barack Obama and Democrats had over the GOP have all but eroded in 2013.
