If There’s No Imminent Threat To Our Southern Border, Why Is Ft. Bliss Stepping Up Security?

3:02 PM 09/04/2014

Just hours before the start of the Labor Day weekend, Judicial Watch learned through a network of sensitive sources that an operational element of the terror army “ISIS” was active in the Mexican border city of Juarez – a stone’s throw across the Rio Grande from El Paso, Texas. According to our well-sourced information, the Juarez ISIS element is planning an imminent terror strike somewhere on the border. Our sources warned that a car or other vehicle-type bomb attack was planned. We learned that the warnings merited briefing the commanding general of Fort Bliss – the massive US Army post in El Paso.

Though The Heavens Fall: Getting To The Bottom Of Benghazi

10:49 AM 08/07/2014

Judicial Watch released 41 pages of previously withheld Obama administration internal documents that showed top White House political operatives were behind the cover-up of the fatal Benghazi terrorist attack of September 11, 2012. And even the normally complacent mainstream media was forced to face the smoking gun.

Captain Obama and the wreck of the Hesperus

5:37 PM 04/01/2014

Barack Obama’s legacy legislation, the Affordable Healthcare Act (ACA) – commonly known as “Obamacare” – has clearly become the political equivalent of the wreck of the Hesperus. If there was any doubt remaining about that, it was all but removed by the administration’s recent decision to provide “hardship exemptions” to just about anyone who can work up the energy to apply for one – and its admitted inability to control the security of its own web portal.

The IRS stonewall

7:34 PM 12/09/2013

Judicial Watch recently sued the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) to force it to hand over “any and all” records related to the agency’s now-notorious witch hunt against conservative 501c4 nonprofit organizations in the nearly two years leading up to the 2012 presidential election. While the records are likely to provide some stunning revelations, the fact is that the IRS’ refusal to willingly hand over the records as required by law is equally revealing. As the late 60 Minutes producer George Crile sagely observed, “It’s not just the crime, it’s the cover-up that gets you in trouble.”

Controlling the Guantanamo message

5:27 PM 10/10/2013

Barack Obama has made closing the Guantanamo Bay (GTMO) terrorist detention center an article of faith since his first presidential campaign. He said it again the day he took office. And he repeated as recently as May 2013.

The left’s war on dissent

12:15 PM 09/23/2013

The far left, led by the Obama administration, has declared a retroactive War on Dissent. Lest you have any doubts, consider this: Were Thomas Jefferson, George Washington, and Benjamin Franklin alive today, the Obama administration would label them “extremists” and ban them, at a minimum, from military service. According to a Defense Department training manual recently uncovered by Judicial Watch, our Founding Fathers, or as described by the Obama administration “colonists who sought to free themselves from British rule,” were “examples of extremist ideologies and movements.”

Benghazi: No one left to lie to

2:23 PM 08/06/2013

Judicial Watch has now filed four separate Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) lawsuits in our continuing effort to force the Obama administration to finally tell the full truth about the Benghazi massacre. And the story that is emerging is one of political treachery in the highest places, beginning with outright lies about the nature of the attack itself and culminating with a great stone wall of secrecy to avoid accountability for one of the most deadly political scandals in recent American history.

Cheryl Mills, Clinton cover-up expert, strikes again

2:18 PM 06/12/2013

Four years ago, when Cheryl Mills was appointed chief of staff to then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, I warned: “Mills is not fit to serve in any official capacity in the government, but most especially as chief of staff at the Department of State.” Now, as evidence emerges that she attempted to silence the congressional testimony of State Department whistleblower Gregory Hicks in the Benghazi-gate scandal, that warning has proven to be tragically prophetic.
