    Bill Clinton was getting a foot massage. “We were on the terrace of his apartment,” recalled the 20-something intern at the William J. Clinton Presidential Library and Museum who was massaging Bill’s feet. “We had a meal served from 42 [the restaurant in the Little Rock library] — ­vegan stuff like kale salad. “He often invites girls like me who work at the library to his apartment for a glass of red wine and a massage,” the intern said in an interview for this book. “He likes his neck and shoulders massaged because he gets knots in his muscles. But...

    On Tuesday night Donald Trump accused Bill Clinton of rape. The accusations are well documented but have never been discussed by the liberal media. ... On Thursday Hillary Clinton dodged the accusations– Via People: “I am not afraid of Donald Trump. He can attack me as much as he wants – I know I can take it. But we won’t let his attacks against Americans based on their ethnicity, their gender or the faith they practice go unanswered,” Hillary wrote Thursday in a fundraising email titled, “Are you with me, against Trump?”

    Former President Bill Clinton was a much more frequent flyer on a registered sex offender’s infamous jet than previously reported, with flight logs showing the former president taking at least 26 trips aboard the “Lolita Express” -- even apparently ditching his Secret Service detail for at least five of the flights, according to records obtained by FoxNews.com. ADVERTISEMENT Clinton’s presence aboard Jeffrey Epstein’s Boeing 727 on 11 occasions has been reported, but flight logs show the number is more than double that, and trips between 2001 and 2003 included extended junkets around the world with Epstein and fellow passengers identified...

    When Bill Clinton left office in 2001, historians compared him to Teddy Roosevelt.... Looking back now, though, the comparison seems wildly off. Roosevelt, you may recall, ended up running for president again and then crusading against Woodrow Wilson’s pacifism. To the day he died in 1919, TR jealously protected his twin legacy of reform and internationalism. Clinton, on the other hand, has run from every big ideological fight like a man on parole. From the moment he stepped out of the White House, the husband of a newly elected senator, his own political interests have been subservient to his wife’s...

    American Thinker ^ | February 8, 2016 | Russ Vaughn
    Brit Hume, speaking on FOX News, noted that Bill Clinton is now an elderly man - a thought that I'll wager has been going through many American minds since last Monday night, when Hillary gave her post-caucus acceptance...er, victory speech in Iowa. [Snip] The visage that Bill wore for much of that harangue was truly revealing - more like something you'd see in a nursing home day room than on a presidential campaign stage. His head drooped, and his mouth frequently gaped open in what almost appeared to be a slack-eyed but leering old geezer smile directed towards his partner's...

    Breitbart ^ | 1/28/16 | Mike Flynn
    Bill Clinton's poll ratings are in free-fall, and that surprise crash undermines the conventional wisdom that Hillary Clinton has a lock on the Democrat nomination. A new CBS/New York Times poll shows that just 39 percent of American voters have a favorable opinion of Bill Clinton. This is down from a 50 percent approval rating just a few months ago. In 2012...66 percent of voters had a favorable opinion of Mr. Clinton. Bill Clinton's favorable rating today is actually lower than it was in 2008, when he last campaigned forcefully for Hillary as she was battling Barack Obama for the...

    Los Angeles Times ^ | January 5, 2015 | By Michael A. Memoli
    Bill Clinton's political muscle memory took him down a well-worn path Monday in New Hampshire: the rally in Nashua, the lunchtime mingle in Manchester and the afternoon town hall in Exeter. Like the snow flurries on one of the coldest days of winter so far, Clinton's Arkansas twang was so familiar in the hamlets of the Granite State that it seemed to signal that the time to pick a president is near again. Asked about the repeated assertions by Republican front-runner Donald Trump that Clinton's history of sexual indiscretions was "fair game" in the campaign, he demurred. "There's always a...

    Perhaps growing tired of targeting his Democratic opponent Hillary Clinton, Donald Trump has now set his sights on her husband. Trump seems intent on bringing former President Bill Clinton's womanizing ways back into the limelight as he begins to campaign on behalf of his wife. If Hillary thinks she can unleash her husband, with his terrible record of women abuse, while playing the women's card on me, she's wrong!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) December 28, 2015 Considering Hillary has often claimed to be a defender of women's rights, Does Trump have a right to bring up her husband's "sexism" to expose...

    When in Paris, even former President Bill Clinton can apparently spare a little time for shopping – at Hermčs. 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...

    The Post hit the nail right on the head when it reported exclusively last September that the US narrowly averted a crash of the financial markets, it was recently revealed. 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...
