[Republican] House Benghazi Report Finds No New Evidence of Wrongdoing by Hillary Clinton

 

Play Video

On September 11, 2012, a partially armed group of men stormed a US diplomatic outpost in the Libyan city of Benghazi. At the time, it was not clear who they were or why they’d attacked. But by the time the attack was over, four Americans, including US Ambassador to Libya Christopher Stevens, had been killed. The attack ended by the early hours of September 12. But it has echoed in Washington ever since. The controversy has centered on Republican accusations that the Obama administration did not take heed of intelligence warnings before the attack, that during the attack it refused to call in available military support, and that after the attack it deliberately covered up what had happened. Repeated independent investigations have disproven all of these allegations. But Republicans have continued to push them, insisting that these failures go all the way to the top, personally involving President Obama and then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton. They’ve done so partly out political expediency — they think it’s a great way to attack Clinton’s presidential campaign — and partly out of a genuine belief that the administration is covering up the truth. But regardless of the motivation, it’s kind of paid off for Republicans: The House Select Committee on Benghazi, created by Speaker of the House John Boehner in 2014, found the first documented evidence that Clinton used unauthorized private email servers for State Department business, which became a major scandal. Unless Clinton is defeated in the Democratic primary, Benghazi will be around for the rest of the 2016 election — and if she wins, you’ll likely be hearing about it for much longer.

Voting Conspiracies

Q: Is it true that there were more votes than voters in Wood County, Ohio, and St. Lucie County, Fla., and that Obama lost every state with photo ID laws?
A: No. A viral email that makes those claims is bogus. It fabricates Ohio and Florida results. Also, Obama won four of the 11 states with photo ID laws.

Kings of Cannabis

You might not know who Arjan Roskam is, but you’ve probably smoked his weed. Arjan’s been breeding some of the most famous marijuana strains in the world—like White Widow, Super Silver Haze, and many others—for over 20 years.

In 1992 he opened his first coffee shop in Amsterdam and has since crafted his marijuana-breeding skills into a market-savvy empire known as Green House Seed Company, which rakes in millions of dollars a year.

He’s won 38 Cannabis Cups and has dubbed himself the King of Cannabis.

VICE joins Arjan and his crew of strain hunters in Colombia to look for three of the country’s rarest types of weed, strains that have remained genetically pure for decades. In grower’s terms, these are called landraces. We trudge up mountains and crisscross military checkpoints in the country’s still-violent south, and then head north to the breathtaking Caribbean coast. As the dominoes of criminalization fall throughout the world, Arjan is positioned to be at the forefront of the legitimate international seed trade.

How to Make Hash – Cannabis Craftsmanship

How is hash made? Have you ever wondered how the hash you find on dispensary shelves is made or wanted to make it yourself? Recently we visited Sugarleaf Farm in Skagit County, Washington to find out how they make their pressed hash.

Mark Brinn, owner of Sugarleaf Farm and Funky Skunk Extracts, walked us through the steps he takes when concentrating cannabis into pressed bricks of hash. Using a modern take on traditional hash-making techniques, Mark creates a concentrate through a process that is entirely mechanical and does not use butane or any other solvents to extract the cannabinoids and terpenes from the cannabis plant.

Trump’s Faulty ‘Rigged’ Reasoning

The Hidden History of Trump’s First Trip to Moscow

It was 1984 and General Vladimir Alexandrovich Kryuchkov had a problem. The general occupied one of the KGB’s most exalted posts. He was head of the First Chief Directorate, the prestigious KGB arm responsible for gathering foreign intelligence.

Kryuchkov had begun his career with five years at the Soviet mission in Budapest under Ambassador Yuri Andropov. In 1967 Andropov became KGB chairman. Kryuchkov went to Moscow, took up a number of sensitive posts, and established a reputation as a devoted and hardworking officer. By 1984, Kryuchkov’s directorate in Moscow was bigger than ever before—12,000 officers, up from about 3,000 in the 1960s. His headquarters at Yasenevo, on the wooded southern outskirts of the city, was expanding: Workmen were busy constructing a 22-story annex and a new 11-story building.

Blackface Photo Doesn’t Show Clintons

The Future of Cannabis: Black Market vs Legitimate Dispensaries Debate

Marijuana is a projected 55 billion dollar industry that’s only available for adult use in just 11 states and medically legal in a little over half the country. As fortunes are being created and millions of dollars are being invested, over-regulating and restricted access have placed the wealth of legal marijuana into the hands of a select few, causing Democratic presidential candidates to use phrases like reparations or restorative justice in describing their plans for federal legalization. So we talked to some cannabis entrepreneurs in the Bay Area where some of these plans already exist to find out if they have brought equity to the industry or if they have handed the keys to corporate interests.
