The reason I posted this in this thread is because it is a window into the true oligarchy moreso than a story on Clinton:
BREAKING: Hillary Clinton Destroyed Communications Connecting State Dept. To ISIS Leader
 
Above: Current ISIS leader of Libya, Abdelhakim Belhadj receiving an award from Senator Richard Bumenthal, Senator John McCain, and Senator Lindsey Graham. It should be noted that this photo took place at a time when all three senators knew Belhadj had direct ties with the very militant groups that helped create and then carry out, the September 11th, 2001 attacks. Within months of this photo being taken, Belhadj oversaw the murders by ISIS of 21 Coptic Christians in Libya. He has since implemented Sharia Law throughout much of Libya and is utterly devoted to promoting ISIS throughout not only the Middle East, but the world. 


Above: Then Secretary of State Hillary Clinton poses with Libyan militants in October of 2011, shortly after the overthrow of that nation’s long ruling dictator, Moammar Gadhafi. One year later would see the death of U.S. Ambassador Chris Stevens and three other Americans after an attack upon an American consulate in Benghazi by Islamic militants similar to the ones Mrs. Clinton is seen posing with above.
   
   A D.C. Whispers source had this to say regarding the incestuous relationship between the Obama administration, Hillary Clinton, and certain Republican members of Congress:

“The real reason so little has been said regarding the Clinton email scandal is that some of those emails implicated some very powerful figures around here. From top Republicans, to Mrs. Clinton, to the most senior members of the Obama White House. By destroying the evidence, Hillary Clinton was not only protecting herself, but the White House and certain Republicans in both the House and the Senate. The Libya/Benghazi grave is very wide, very deep, and there’s too much power vested in its continued cover-up. There were communications that made clear the links between the administration and the same Islamic militants who are now ISIS in Libya. Money and weapons continue to be be funneled from Libya to Syria and Iraq. The word has gone out to anyone who makes a serious attempt to get to the bottom of this scandal – LEAVE IT ALONE or it might just be more than your career that is terminated.”

Thanks for the acknowledgement.

I added this to my post after your reply ...

 So personal property rights as well as free will are being attacked. The property owner can no longer rent out their unit unless he / she quits smoking, even if a non smoker is willing to move in knowing that a smoker lives next door.

I truly think that this is a big deal.

Things are creeping and creeping into our lives.  Once a precedent is established ...  The privacy of your own home is no longer sacrosanct with legal activities. 

Here's one example ...

 California City Bans Smoking at Home

By definition, if you own a duplex and smoke and rent out the other side to another smoker, you can no longer do that.
