    (CNSNews.com) - Former President Bill Clinton—who was impeached by the U.S. House of Representatives for perjury and obstruction of justice and held in contempt of court by U.S. District Judge Susan Webber Wright for giving “intentionally false” testimony—claimed to his former staffer George Stephanopoulos on ABC News’s “This Week With George Stephanopoulos” on Sunday that Sen. Ted Cruz made multiple false statements during his filibuster on the Senate floor last week. “I listened to some of Sen. Cruz’s filibuster on the health-care bill and he just kept making all these claims that just aren’t so and everybody knows they’re not,”...

    He had just flown across the country after an exhausting campaign day in Oregon and South Dakota, landing at the White House after dark. But President Bill Clinton still had more business before bed. He picked up a pen and scrawled out his name, turning a bill into law. It was 10 minutes before 1 a.m. on Saturday, Sept. 21, 1996, and there were no cameras, no ceremony. The witching-hour timing bespoke both political calculation and personal angst. With his signature, federal law now defined marriage as the union of a man and woman. Mr. Clinton considered it a gay-baiting...

    Two decades have passed since nightclub entertainer and blond bombshell Gennifer Flowers stepped before cameras and announced she had a 12-year affair with then-Gov. Bill Clinton, joining a roster of attractive women who reported similar dalliances, wanted and unwanted. Miss Flowers has stepped forward once again to reveal that in 2005, Mr. Clinton offered to come visit her once again. “I picked up the telephone, and it was him. I said, ‘No, you can’t come over here. No way.’ I said ‘No, you can’t come to my house.’ He said, ‘I’ll put on a hoodie and jog up there.’ He...

    At his first solo rally of the 2012 election campaign, former President Bill Clinton tonight invoked the 9/11 anniversary to urge all Americans to register to vote and endorse President Obama’s vision for a future of “shared prosperity.” He also took shots at Republicans and GOP presidential nominee Mitt Romney, whom he said were conspiring to discourage Democratic voters and would take the country on a drastically different path. “I decided to come here on this day because I think if you look around at how this day is being honored today — it’s being honored by service projects all...

    Bill Clinton, after steering clear of the flap over Mitt Romney using him in an ad in which he accused President Obama of trying to "gut" the 1996 welfare reform act, responds tonight with a statement rapping the Republican:  "Governor Romney released an ad today alleging that the Obama administration had weakened the work requirements of the 1996 Welfare Reform Act. That is not true.  "The act emerged after years of experiments at the state level, including my work as Governor of Arkansas beginning in 1980.  When I became President, I granted waivers from the old law to 44 states...

    The codes used by the president to launch a nuclear strike were mislaid for months during the Clinton administration, the former highest-ranking US officer has said. [...] Gen Shelton said the incident had taken place "around the year 2000". Under the procedures, an official was sent every month to check the codes, and that they were replaced every four months with new codes. According to Gen Shelton's book, Without Hesitation, an official had gone to check one month and been told by the aide that the codes were on the president's person but that he was in an important meeting...

    RIVERSIDE, Calif. – A federal judge in Southern California has declared the U.S. military's ban on openly gay service members unconstitutional. U.S. District Judge Virginia Phillips on Thursday granted a request for an injunction halting the government's "don't ask, don't tell" policy for gays in the military. Phillips says the policy doesn't help military readiness and instead has a "direct and deleterious effect" on the armed services. The lawsuit was the biggest legal test of the law in recent years and came amid promises by President Barack Obama that he will work to repeal the policy.

    With the 15th anniversary of the Oklahoma City bombing Monday, former President Bill Clinton is playing a starring role in the liberal effort to draw what the New York Times calls "parallels between the antigovernment tone that preceded that devastating attack and the political tumult of today." The short version of the narrative is: Today's Tea Partiers are tomorrow's right-wing bombers. On Friday, Clinton spoke at a symposium on the bombing organized by the liberal think tank Center for American Progress, founded and run by John Podesta, the former Clinton White House chief of staff who also directed the Obama...

    I'm actually beginning to think had Hillary won there would be fewer Clinton retreads coming on-board. Where the change? The bold innovative thinking? Are former Clinton hacks the best you can do, Barry? Geez, at this rate I almost expect Lani Guinier to be nominated for something. It's almost as if they had some incriminating photos of the guy. No, instead of this mythical change, we get a guy who sent Elian Gonzalez back to hell.

    While not an outright endorsement, Bill’s comments on Sarah Palin are far more respectable than what we’ve seen from the MSM and the Obama campaign: Mr Clinton, acclaimed even by his enemies as one of the most consummate American politicians in recent history, said he did not agree with Republican vice presidential pick Mrs Palin on politics, but warned fellow Democrats not to underestimate her. “She’s an instinctively effective candidate and with a compelling story,” Mr Clinton said in an interview with CNBC. “I think it was exciting to some that she was a woman,” said Mr Clinton. “I think...
