Glock Donates $30,000 to DEA Survivors Benefit Fund


By Allan Lengel

The Drug Enforcement Administration’s Survivors Benefit Fund (DEASBF) received a donation of $30,000 from GLOCK, Inc.  at the annual International Association of Chiefs of Police conference in  San Diego last week.

“GLOCK is proud to help honor those who have laid down their lives to serve and protect,”  GLOCK National Director of Sales, Bob Radecki Radecki, said in a statement.  “By assisting in providing their children with a college education, GLOCK is able to contribute to this meaningful cause.”

Since 2011, GLOCK has donated nearly $150,000 to the DEASBF.

Retired DEA agent Richard Crook, who is chairman of the fund, said:

“The fund would not exist without donors and partners like GLOCK. We can never replace a lost mother or father but with GLOCK’s help we can make the lives of the surviving family members, especially the children, a little easier. Currently, the Benefit Fund pays line of duty death and continuing education benefits to the families of DEA Agents and Task Force Officers killed in the line of duty.”

Wife of High-Ranking FBI Official Received Campaign Cash by Clinton Allies

FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe

FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe

By Steve Neavling

Deputy FBI Director Andrew McCabe played a major role in the bureau’s investigation of Hillary Clinton’s email use as secretary of state.

Turns out, McCabe’s wife, Dr. Jill McCabe, received nearly $500,000 in donations from Virginia Gov. Terry McAuliffe, who has longstanding ties to the Clintons, for her campaign to run for a state Senate seat, the Wall Street Journal reveals.

The Virginia Democratic Party, over which McAuliffe has considerable influence, donated an additional $207,788 worth of campaign mailers to Dr. McCabe’s senate campaign, which she eventually lost.

The governor’s spokesman said he “supported Jill McCabe because he believed she would be a good state senator. This is a customary practice for Virginia governors… Any insinuation that his support was tied to anything other than his desire to elect candidates who would help pass his agenda is ridiculous.”

In a statement, the FBI responded that Andrew McCabe, who is now the deputy director of the bureau, “played no role, attended no events, and did not participate in fundraising or support of any kind. Months after the completion of her campaign, then-Associate Deputy Director McCabe was promoted to Deputy, where, in that position, he assumed for the first time, an oversight role in the investigation into Secretary Clinton’s emails.”

Dr. McCabe defended her husband.

“Once I decided to run, my husband had no formal role in my campaign other than to be a supportive husband to me and our children. As a federal official…everyone who participated in our campaign understood and respected that he could not participate.”

Richmond Times-Dispatch: More Deplorable Revelations Surface of Clinton Probe

By Editorial Board
Richmond Times-Dispatch 

More deplorable revelations about Hillary Clinton have hit the news.

The FBI released more documents related to its investigation of Hillary Clinton’s private email server, and a letter from the inspector general for the national intelligence community was made public. The dismal revelations are not surprising; they merely reinforce the judgment much of the public has formed about the Democratic presidential nominee.

The most alarming news is contained in the letter from intelligence IG Charles McCullough III. He informed two Senate committees that Clinton’s server contained emails about special access programs.

Certain classified information rises to a level above top secret. Some of it is classified as SCI, or secure compartmentalized information. Information about special access programs is deemed even more sensitive than that.

This news rebuts, once again, Clinton’s false claim that she never sent or received classified information over her private server. To the contrary, information on it was highly classified. It also calls into question FBI director James Comey’s decision not to bring charges against her — a decision that appears to have troubled a number of career FBI agents as well.

The FBI’s own documents show that hackers attacked Clinton’s server numerous times — and were able to gain control of one email account belonging to a staffer who worked for Bill Clinton. The agency was unable to say whether hackers were able to penetrate the entire server.

The agency’s data dump include other information that, while less alarming, is no less embarrassing. Members of the security detail assigned to Clinton while she was secretary of state say she frequently violated both security and diplomatic protocol “without regard for the safety of her staff and protection detail, in order to gain favorable press.”

NTSB to Investigate Bus Crash That Killed 13, Injured 31 in California

Desert Hot Springs, Calif.

Desert Hot Springs, Calif.

By Steve Neavling

The National Transportation Safety Board is investigating a tour bus crash that killed 13 people and injured 31 others in Desert Hot Springs, Calif., early Sunday.

NTSB made the announcement on Twitter Sunday afternoon.

The bus was returning from the Red Earth Casino near Salton Sea when it collided with a big rig on the 10 Freeway.

According to officials, the truck was traveling slowly because workers were strangling power lines across the freeway. That’s when investigators say the bus slammed into the back of the trailer at a high rate of speed.

It’s unclear why the bus didn’t slow down.

DEA Agent Accused of Having Sexual Relationship with Paid Informant

dea-badgeBy Steve Neavling

A DEA supervisor denied allegations that he had sex with a paid informant.

There’s no salacious activity going on,” former DEA Atlanta office supervisor Keith Cromer said in U.S. Magistrate Judge Shirley Padmore Mensah’s St. Louis federal court on Friday, the Daily Caller reports. 

Cromer said he developed a person relationship with a paid informant, but it never became sexual.

Cromer invoked the Fifth Amendment twice during the court hearing.

The Justice Department has opened up a criminal investigation.

Cromer admitted he had gone on vacation with the informant twice, but said they stayed in separate bedrooms.

The informant received $212,000 for information that helped the DEA with several cases.

Parker: Heavy Marijuana Users Have Thinner Bones and More Fracture

medical marijuana

Ross Parker was chief of the criminal division in the U.S. Attorney’s Office in Detroit for 8 years and worked as an AUSA for 28 in that office.

By Ross Parker

Adding to the developing body of medical knowledge about the dangers of marijuana use, the University of Edinburgh announced this past week that frequent use results in reduced bone mineral density and a higher incidence of fractures. The study also concluded that these heavy users have a reduced body mass index (BMI) which further contributed to a thinning of the bones and could result in a greater risk of osteoporosis.

This part of the study raises questions about the popular theory that smoking increases appetite, colloquially known as having the “munchies.” For frequent smokers the use actually had the opposite effect of suppressing appetite, thus resulting in a lower BMI and weaker bones. Frequent smokers were defined as those who had smoked marijuana at least 5,000 times in their lifetimes.

The study also found that moderate use, about 1,000 total occasions of smoking, showed no difference in bone mineral density from that of non-users.

The study was sponsored by Arthritis Research UK and is published in the American Journal of Medicine.
