    When in Paris, even former President Bill Clinton can apparently spare a little time for shopping – at Hermès. A five-car convoy carrying the former president and a security detachment arrived out front of the luxury brand's landmark boutique on Monday at noon. Clinton, 68, spent more than an hour on the shop's third floor section, where windows were closed after his arrival. The observer speculated: "He's up there, probably buying the store." He reportedly left with several shopping bags. We can't help but wonder what he purchased and whether Clinton was shopping for himself or his wife and U.S....

    At the Clinton Global Initiative meeting in Denver, the former president said that he will likely stop giving paid speeches if Hillary Clinton is elected president. "No. I don't think so," Clinton said in an interview with Bloomberg TV when asked about staying on the paid speaking circuit were his wife to win. "Because once you get to be president, then you are just making a daily story." But Clinton added that he would not stop speaking publicly altogether: “I will still give speeches on things I’m passionate about.”

    Former President Bill Clinton acquainted himself with the former cheerleader ambassador for the Washington Redskins—known to most in the liberal community simply as the Washington Football Team. Kirby Parkhomenko served as cheerleader ambassador for the team through last season and also is a staffer at Ready for Hillary. Hillary Clinton has called the team name “insensitive” in the past, and has said that “there’s no reason for it to continue as the name of a team in our nation’s capital.”

    White House senior advisor Valerie Jarrett is praising President Obama for helping “accelerate” the cause of gay marriage, and she marvels at the speed of the cultural change that swept the nation. Jarrett spoke during a reception for the plaintiffs of the Supreme Court Case hosted by the group Freedom to Marry. “The arc of the moral universe bent a little faster than even we thought it would,” Jarrett said to a Buzzfeed reporter who attended the reception. Jarrett delivered a speech at the reception, thanking everyone who fought to bring the case before the Supreme Court and recognizing the...

    Seeking Alpha ^ | February 12, 2009 | Felix Salmon
    With the Kanjorski Meme still spreading (see Ben Smith, Andrew Leonard, Moldbug, and more), I think I'm finally able to squash it with some hard figures: there never was a $500 billion outflow from any asset class in the space of a couple of hours or even weeks, and the Fed never shut down or froze any money-market accounts. This is not the first time that Kanjorski has made these allegations. But first, it's worth going through the timeline. On September 15, Lehman Brothers failed. The Reserve fund -- which was $64 billion that morning, and which had a substantial...

In the days after the Lehman Brothers bankruptcy, there was a run on the country's money market funds as investors feared the bonds held by the funds would collapse - which The Post reported in a Sept. 21 story entitled "Almost Armageddon." Rep. Paul Kanjorski, of the House Finance Committee, confirmed the bank run recently. .....

    NEW YORK/WASHINGTON (Reuters) - The father of the money market mutual fund -- investor Bruce Bent -- was charged with fraud by U.S. regulators on Tuesday over accusations he deceived investors into believing his flagship fund was safe before it "broke the buck" last year. The civil charges against the veteran money manager, his son and their investment company come eight months after the Reserve Primary Fund, loaded with Lehman Brothers debt, halted redemptions after the investment bank declared bankruptcy, sparking a run on money-market funds. The fund's net asset value fell below $1 after Lehman's bankruptcy last September, meaning...

    A Miami-Dade jury awarded $1.5 million to former South Beach bartender Patrick Timothy O'Neill, who said two urologists injured his penis while treating him for warts. O'Neill, 43, filed suit in '98 against Drs. Bernardo Lederman and Jacob Cohen, along with South Beach Urological Associates. Lederman ''surgically removed'' three papilloma on April 18, 1996. Afterward, O'Neill says, he developed an infection and received treatment through the following month. 'On each and every visit, the defendants assured [O'Neill] that there was nothing wrong with his penis and that he was `obsessing over nothing,' '' says the complaint, filed by attorney David...

    LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (Reuters) - An Arkansas lawyer and his son will soon be heading to prison after pleading guilty to mailing a threatening communication -- a poisonous snake. Bob Sam Castleman, an attorney and former city judge in Pocahontas, Arkansas, and his son, Jerrod, were charged with mailing a cardboard box containing a venomous copperhead snake to a neighbor with whom they had feuded. The two pleaded guilty in federal court Wednesday. The wife of the man to whom the poisonous package was addressed opened the box and saw the snake, about 28 inches long, slither out. Police soon...

    <p>Okay, so I thought that I could at least have civil debate with INTELLIGENT conservatives, but after posting under a different name, not only were the responses the equivellant of "UH-UH," but I was denied my rights as a citizen of this great country. It appears to me that Free Republic is not interested in FREE SPEECH! I do love the U.S., I just disagree with the jingoism that followed 9/11. I disagree with our leaders purposfully lying to their citizens in order to go to war. I disagree with going to war against the express directions of the UN which was made to council the nations on these issues. I disagree with the nation's presidency being stolen from the rightful owner, the man who truly won the election. I disagree with that stolen presidency being handed to a C average student who has a criminal record and went AWOL when he was supposed to be serving in the military. I disagree with corporations running the government in the new era of pay to play politics. I disagree with the same corporations that run the country, run the news media. I disagree with conservatives instead of listening to what a liberal has to say, they resort to attacking them with (sometimes) drastic immaturity. I disagree with using religion to get votes. I disagree with religion. I disagree with history being written by the victors. I disagree with with the USA PATRIOT Act not only because anyone can be detained for any reason for any amount of time without a trial with a jury of twelve peers. I disagree with the fact it is called the "Patriot Act" and yet there is nothing patriotic about it. I DO agree with the quote "If you are willing to sacrifice freedom for for security, you deserve neither." I disagree with the civilians in this country not standing up and calling for an impeachment for a president that has done far worse than getting a blow job in the oval office. He has LIED, CHEATED, AND MURDERED. I disagree with everyone being angry at Bill Clinton for smoking marijuana but no one criticizes George W. Bush for DRUNK DRIVING and COCAINE use. I disagree with George W. Bush saying in a nationally televised broadcast, "If you aren't with us, you're with the terrorists." This hurt the feelings of about 60% of New York citizens because they not only lost friends and family in the World Trade Center on 9/11, but they also opposed going to war with Iraq. You can imagine the deranged ultimatum this put on those poor Ameericans who had to choose between those who killed their friends and family and the their better judgment to wait for a UN resolution. I disagree with a $350 billion tax that goes directly to the 1% minority of the wealthy. I disagree with the "No Child Left Behind" policy. Standardized tests don't teach children anything but how to memorize test questions. As a teacher, I can only describe it as leaving every child behind. I disagree with arch conservatives on this website saying that I have AIDS because I am liberal and am into homosexual activites. To clear up your mislead statements of slander. I am heterosexual, I do not have AIDS. I have two healthy children that are beautiful and will be entering school in a year. I love my wife and my country. I don't agree with you...but that doesn't mean I hate you or your thoughts. I encourage them. But please stop reacting to someone that you disagree with in an angry passion of blind ignorance. It doesn't solve anything.</p>

And he's good, dammit, really good. Who else could make eye contact with several hundred people for a couple of hours during a speech and ``conversation'' at the John F. Kennedy Library Wednesday. ``It's amazing how he does that,'' said one young woman. ``I would swear he was looking right at me.'' He was lean (what, are there no McDonald's in...
  • Shocking: Clinton's Editor Questions Memoir's Credibility: "Did you make half of that stuff up?"

    An editor working on ex-President Bill Clinton's memoirs has raised questions about the veracity of his account after reading the book's first draft. "Did you make half of that stuff up?" the editor asked, according to Clinton's own admission during a ceremony at his Little Rock presidential library on Friday. In little-noticed comments covered by the Associated Press, the ex-president revealed the unnamed editor's skepticism, saying, "When I first showed my editor the drafts of my memoirs, he said, 'Boy you've got a lot in here about Arkansas.' "And I said, 'Well read it before you cut it out.'" Then...

Armed with a new Sharpie and surrounded by workers building the multimillion-dollar presidential library that the beam is a part of, Bill Clinton made the marker count 403. More than 3,000 people cheered Friday as the former president signed his name to the beam that completes the skeleton of his presidential library in Little Rock.

Under the president’s wise leadership, America is experiencing unprecedented prosperity at home and receiving unparalleled respect overseas; our nation has never been stronger. As the Washington Post recently editorialized, “It’s time for impeachment!” Of course, President Gore won the election in a controversial manner - by getting the most votes. The choice...
