Extract: Last week, Hillary Clinton disclosed that she and her husband made around $25 million since January 2014 from speeches; Bill Clinton also was paid more than $104 million from 2001 through 2012 by delivering speeches.

The Clintons reported that income on federally required personal financial disclosure forms filed by Hillary Clinton as a senator, secretary of state and now a declared presidential candidate.

But the new disclosure indicates that the former president has also spent considerable time speaking on the foundation’s behalf — 73 times since 2002.

Major companies, foreign sources and others gave money for Bill, Hillary and Chelsea Clinton speeches.

The president said that the fight against Islamic State forces was not being lost, but that more should be done to help Iraq recapture lost territory.

Many effective military steps short of deploying U.S. combat troops could be taken in Iraq, Syria, and Ukraine.

Pertinent to the dynamics of legal investigation, litigation, and proof in adjudication:

Extract: Since leaving the White House in 2001, Clinton has been paid at least $127 million in speaking fees alone, while also earning huge book advances and being paid to consult for various companies. Many of the corporations and countries that paid him had an interest in influencing U.S. foreign policy while Hillary Clinton was secretary of state – a confluence that critics say constitutes a conflict of interest.

Do you think it is peculiar that Pres. Obama's commencement address at the Coast Guard Academy focused on climate change rather than on the recent major military setbacks in Iraq and Syria? Is the explanation for this that the President did not yet know what to say about the desultory military developments in Iraq and Syria?

I do not believe that Netanyahu wants any kind of Palestinian state to exist within "greater Israel":

The international community has been skeptical with regard to Netanyahu’s commitment to a two-state solution, particularly after he made statements against it on the eve of the March 17th election.

What the press still fails to appreciate about Hillary Clinton is that she’s not running for president, she’s running as president, and all the usual rules about when and how she should speak don’t apply to her. In her mind—and who can blame her?—she’s the incumbent, this is a reelection campaign, and she occupies...

More astonishing, apocalyptic images of a volcanic eruption have emerged from Chile, this time from Villarrica in the south of the country.

Rev. Calvin Butts, who is unhappy with New York City Mayor de Blasio (see article), for a goodly number of years - and perhaps to this day - has held two full-time jobs simultaneously, head pastor of a very large church and CEO of a state-funded college in the SUNY system. Perhaps New State taxpayers should be unhappy with Rev. Butts?

Mayor Bill de Blasio remains popular with black constituents, but some community ministers and activists have complained that he has been slow to address their concerns.
