  • It Ain't Funny, Hillary

    10/09/2015 11:33:46 AM PDT · by Kaslin · 15 replies ^ | October 9, 2015 | Suzanne Fields
    While the Donald tries to overcome his reputation as an over-the-top television entertainer so he might support his ambition to become president, Hillary Clinton is running for comedienne-in-chief. She went on "Saturday Night Live" to trade her high seriousness for laughs. Neither candidate will seal the deal the way they're trying to do it. The Donald, who's used to dishing it out, exposes a thin skin when mocked by other candidates, and his shifting numbers suggest that the jump from reality TV to the White House, even in the age of the outsider, is not an easy one. "The Trump...
  • Georgia voters throw their peanuts to Trump (Peanut Poll @ Georgia National Fair in Perry)

    10/09/2015 10:31:16 AM PDT · by RoosterRedux · 17 replies
    Of nearly 460 people who voted, about 38 percent cast a peanut for Trump. Ben Carson, a pediatric neurosurgeon, came in second with about 24 percent of the peanuts. Nearly all candidates - even Joe Biden, who has not announced whether he’ll run - found fans at the fair. Lincoln Chafee, the former U.S. senator and governor of Rhode Island, was “still looking for his first vote,” noted guest announcer Gary Black, the state’s agriculture commissioner. For that matter, so were Republicans Georgia Pataki and Jim Gilmore. For Democrats, Hillary Clinton ended the day with 64 legumes stacked up in...

    Washington Times ^ | October 8, 2015
    Rather than cooperate, Democrats from the start have tried to thwart the Benghazi probe from within, Chairman Trey Gowdy said in a letter released Thursday that accused Democrats of bad faith and also announced the release of emails that call into question the relationship between former Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton and her associate Sidney Blumenthal. Mr. Gowdy said it was Democrats, not Republicans, who “selectively leaked information” to try to set the political narrative about the probe. Mr. Gowdy said Democrats have been more interested in that than in actually participating in the investigation, and he accused the...

    Hillary Clinton used her private email account to pass along the identity of one of the CIA’s top Libyan intelligence sources, raising new questions about her handling of classified information, according to excerpts from previously undisclosed emails released Thursday by Rep. Trey Gowdy, the Republican chairman of the House Select Committee on Benghazi. On March 18, 2011, Sidney Blumenthal — Clinton’s longtime friend and political adviser — sent the then secretary of state an email to her private account that contained apparently highly sensitive information he had received from Tyler Drumheller, a former top CIA official with whom Blumenthal at...

    This story was more or less lost in the noise of yesterday's palace intrigue, but it's too important to simply let lie.  Do yourself a favor and click through to Gowdy's letter before proceeding any further. Read the entire thing. It's extraordinary, on several levels: First, Gowdy summons his prosecutorial vigor to absolutely demolish the ranking Democrat on the House Select Committee on Benghazi.  Democrats have seized upon erstwhile Speaker-in-waiting Kevin McCarthy's ill-advised comments to try to shut down the panel's probe -- a continuation of their ongoing, partisan efforts to dismiss its focus as a "phony scandal" and to portray the investigation as a political witch hunt.  Gowdy...

    The reason Rep. Kevin McCarthy abruptly pulled his name from the running for the job as House speaker Thursday may be exactly as he explained – his untoward comments attributing a political purpose to a House committee investigating Benghazi. Or it may have been something else – as speculation swirled on Thursday about an alleged affair with another member of Congress. And if that was the case, one report is suggesting people look to the Obama administration for a level of involvement. Because the trail could link back to the administration’s Department of Homeland Security.

    MOUNT VERNON, Iowa (AP) — Hillary Rodham Clinton says that jail was the "right thing" for a Kentucky clerk who refused to issue marriage licenses to same-sex couples. Speaking in Iowa Wednesday, the Democratic presidential hopeful said Rowan County Clerk Kim Davis was "treated as she should have been treated." Davis spent five days in jail for defying a court order and refusing to license gay marriages. Several Republican presidential candidates have vocally defended Davis, including former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee and Texas Sen. Ted Cruz....

    Many Republicans have tried and failed to win the presidential nomination without support from the party establishment. Donald Trump argues he is different from those hopefuls because his wealth enables him to fund an insurgent campaign all by himself. But for all the talk about his money, so far, Trump isn’t using it. Trump campaign officials say he has only spent about $2 million – far less than fellow GOP candidates Dr. Ben Carson and Sen. Ted Cruz, for instance. each spent $5.5 million just through July, according to the latest FEC reports. Hillary Clinton’s campaign, meanwhile, spent $18 million...

    Former Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton continued her tack to the left Wednesday, declaring her opposition to President Obama’s Pacific trade deal. Mrs. Clinton announced her opposition to the Trans-Pacific Partnership in an interview with Judy Woodruff for PBS’s “NewsHour” program. “What I know about it, as of today, I am not in favor of what I have learned about it,” Mrs. Clinton said. The former first lady acknowledged that her response had some lawyerly caveats about not having seen every jot and tittle of the pact, but said she doubted she could change her mind. “I don’t believe...

Rep.

Clinton said each government official can determine which messages are personal and which ones are work-related. Napolitano said the "noose" is tightening and that Clinton created these problems for herself. He said...

The idea of a no-fly zone — a region of Syria that the United States would protect from bombing to create a safe corridor for refugees — has emerged as a favorite option for Democratic and Republican candidates. It's a plan that allows them to stake out a more aggressive military posture than...

    CNBC has released its criteria for the next GOP debate, and effectively it means there will be ten candidates in the real debate, and three in the minor leagues division: Donald Trump would be at the center, flanked by Ben Carson and Carly Fiorina. If polling averages remain constant, the rest of the 8 p.m. stage would feature Sen. Marco Rubio, former Gov. Jeb Bush, Sen. Ted Cruz, Gov. John Kasich, Gov. Chris Christie, former Gov.

    That Hillary Clinton aide Huma Abedin had her fingers in multiple financial pots — even while still high up in the State Department — is no secret. But the full extent of Abedin’s blurring of roles is coming to light. This summer, The Washington Post revealed that, at one point, Abedin — unusually granted “special government employee” status — was getting paid four different ways: from the taxpayers for her State work, from the Clinton Foundation, as political adviser to Hillary and by the Clinton-allied firm Teneo Holdings. The Washington Times reported last week how Huma’s hats came together in...

    A Joe Biden presidential campaign would help Bernie Sanders by hurting Hillary Clinton, according to Democratic Party insiders and other experts. Biden, whose ideology is more similar to Clinton’s than the left-wing senator from Vermont, would siphon off more of her supporters, according to most polls.

    Vice President Joe Biden is throwing his unequivocal support behind letting transgender people serve openly in the U.S. military, as the Obama administration considers whether and when to lift the longstanding ban. Biden's declaration at the Human Rights Campaign's annual dinner Saturday goes further than anything the Obama administration has said before, evoking memories of when Biden outpaced President Barack Obama in endorsing gay marriage. Although the White House says Obama supports a Pentagon review aimed at ending the transgender ban, neither Obama nor the military has said definitively that the policy will be changed. "No longer is there any...

"You can make the case, if you look at Libya, look at what we did there, it's a mess," Trump said on NBC. "If you look at Saddam Hussein with Iraq, look what we did there, it's a mess. It's going to be...
