  • It must stop now: The media can’t allow Trump to make this election about Bill Clinton

    Donald Trump has fired his first shots of the general election campaign. Predictably, they have nothing to do with anything that matters. In a new video released on Instagram, Trump features audio interviews with women who’ve accused Bill Clinton of sexual assault. Against the backdrop of shadowy audio clips, the accompanying text asks if Hillary Clinton is “really protecting women.” We hear the voices of Monica Lewinsky, Kathleen Wiley, and a clip from a 1999 Dateline interview with Juanita Broaddrick. Near the end, as the sound of Hillary Clinton’s cackle fades, the words “Here we go again” flash on the...

    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...

    Proclaiming Hillary Clinton "the best change maker I have ever known," former President Bill Clinton on Tuesday told a crowd at an Evanston synagogue his wife was the most experienced and best-qualified candidate to serve as the nation's next commander in chief. "You might say, 'Why have they been so mean to her since she left the secretary of state's office,'" he said of Republicans. "You have to understand this is their method of operation. They're scared to have to run against her, because they know if she becomes the president, she'd be the grown-up in every room and she'll...

    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.

    Bill Clinton came to the vote-rich city of Mason City on Wednesday night and recounted his wife's life experiences, recited her policy ideas, and ripped into the Republicans a bit. But what Mr. Clinton used to do so well -- and what Hillary Clinton needs, only days before the Iowa caucuses on Monday -- was nowhere to be found: a polished, piercing critique of an opponent, in this case Bernie Sanders. At an event in Las Vegas last week, Mr. Clinton, 69, looked smaller and his voice seemed weaker than in past campaigns, and people had to strain to hear...

    Faced with a sea of raised hands, Democrat Hillary Clinton often struggles out loud trying to decide who to call on. At a town hall meeting on Tuesday in Sioux City, Iowa, she knew right away. "I gotta call on you," she told a young man near the front. Turning to the audience, she said, "He has a T-shirt that says, 'Bill Clinton for First Lady.'" "You know," the former first lady said, "I'm sort of more partial to First Mate or First Dude." The voter went on to ask a question about the criminal justice system It wasn’t the...

    EXETER, N.H. — Eight years after aggressively defending his wife during her first presidential campaign, Bill Clinton was unusually understated and subdued on Monday during his first solo swing back in New Hampshire for Hillary Clinton, restraining himself even in the face of taunts from Donald J. Trump. Sticking mostly to descriptions of Mrs. Clinton’s policy positions and biography, the former president made only glancing references to her opponents, saying that some were “kind of scary” but not naming names. He also suggested that he would not thrive politically today because he was not “mad at anybody,” an implicit jab...

    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...

    "Is that right? Fourteen?" That's Alisyn Camerota, 1:21 into the video clip. The shock and surprise in the voice of the CNN host is stupendous! Yes, who could possibly imagine that, as CNN commentator Errol Louis stated, there are 14 women who could potentially make allegations of improprieties against Bill Clinton. If Camerota had consulted CNN's own files, she wouldn't be so shocked. The Starr report includes Monica Lewinsky's testimony that Clinton personally told her that "he had had hundreds of affairs" before the age of 40. And Dick Morris is on record saying Clinton had "hundreds of women" just...

    What's more sexist: Donald Trump saying "schlonged" to describe the way Hillary Clinton lost in 2008, or Hillary herself orchestrating a campaign to discredit and destroy women, including Monica Lewinsky, whose "bimbo eruptions" threatened Bill and Hillary's hold on power? According to Al Sharpton on today's Morning Joe, Trump's offense is the graver. Sharpton suggests that Hillary's attack on Monica Lewinsky should be understood as a woman "dealing with someone who was in an indiscretion with her husband." Sharpton thus paints a picture of poor Hillary, the wronged woman, fighting her rival for the affections of her husband. As Trump...

    NBC News ^ | June 8, 2015 | by Perry Bacon Jr.
    An aggressive push for what's being billed as "debt-free college" has galvanized progressive activists, putting Hillary Clinton in the position of either endorsing an idea that will be controversial or being criticized by liberals as too timid if she does not. The proposal, which is also energizing Democrats on Capitol Hill, attempts to enshrine a promise that all Americans can attend a public college and get a four-year degree with little tuition cost and while incurring no student debt. One of Clinton's Democratic rivals, ex-Maryland Gov. Martin O'Malley, has endorsed the idea. Another Democratic candidate, Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders, has...

She spoke to four small-business owners chosen by her staff in front of an audience of 20, also chosen by her staff. She answered a few questions from the media following weeks of silence. And after a little more than an hour, Clinton was off, whisked away by aides and Secret Service agents, into a minivan and on to the next event.

    Democratic presidential contender Hillary Clinton on Wednesday made a stop in Bronzeville where she pledged to improve the availability of quality affordable child care, saying it was important in restoring the economy and the middle class. Clinton also sought to take on the issue of income inequality — something Democratic progressives have said is needed for her campaign to be successful. While speaking at a roundtable of a dozen child-care workers and parents, Clinton sought to make a middle-class connection. The child-care facility is represented by the politically active Service Employees International Union Healthcare Illinois, and Tom Balanoff, president of...

The relationship between the Clintons and Univision is deep — from owner Haim Saban’s unabashed support for Hillary Clinton’s election effort to a partnership between Univision and the Clinton Foundation, to the network’s newscasts that have bashed Republicans and, most recently, praised Hillary’s new position on immigration — putting her squarely in line with the network’s stance on the issue. Univision and the Clinton Foundation joined forces in 2014 for a multi-year early childhood initiative...

    With an eye on the presidency in 2017, another Clinton is parsing words and pandering. Obama, as you might remember, dismissed the undisputed fact that the IRS targeted political groups. He called it a "phony scandal" and declared that "not even a smidgen of corruption" exists inside the IRS—this without an independent investigation or the least bit of transparency from his administration. Stretching the bounds of credulity, the IRS announced Friday that countless emails to and from Lois Lerner were "lost." As a former head of the IRS division that did the screening, Lerner is a key to determining whether...

"I think even in this case we could reach an agreement," Putin said. "When people push boundaries too far, it's not because they are strong but because they are weak.

Publisher Simon & Schuster said Wednesday that Clinton would share "candid reflections about key moments during her time as Secretary of State as well as her thoughts about how to navigate the challenges of the 21st century." Clinton's book has been widely anticipated as she considers another presidential campaign in 2016. The former first lady and New York senator is already a best-selling author: Her 2003 memoir, "Living History," sold more than 1 million copies.

    The ultimate page turner? Fourteen years after her affair with Bill Clinton nearly led to the premature end of his Presidency, Monica Lewinsky will reveal all of the shocking, nitty-gritty details of their infamous relationship in a tell-all -- one she was paid $12 million for, the New York Post reports. Sources told the paper that the former White House intern, 39, will share love letters that she wrote Clinton, 66. "In them, she opened her heart about her love for Bill and how much happier she could make him," an insider is quoted as saying. "Some of what she...

    Monica Lewinsky is reportedly set to write a tell-all book about her affair with Bill Clinton - including her intimate love letters to the ex-president and how he had an insatiable desire for threesomes. The former White House intern, 39, reportedly wants revenge on Clinton, who she believes escaped unscathed while she has never been able to shake the disgrace of their Oval Office trysts. Friends claim publishers are scrambling to get their hands on the book, and after holding meetings, she has learned she could get as much a $12 million if she recounts every tawdry detail. While she...

    SANTA ANA – Former President Bill Clinton told a cheering, whistling crowd of Democratic faithful Friday not to let disappointment in the dragging pace of economic recovery cloud their votes in next month's pivotal elections. Clinton was in Santa Ana to rally voters for Rep. Loretta Sanchez, one of dozens of Democrats nationwide whose seats are considered in play in part because of widespread apathy among party voters. Sanchez finds herself locked in a tight race with Republican Assemblyman Van Tran, even though registered Democrats far outnumber Republicans in her central Orange County district. Congresswoman Loretta Sanchez, left, and President...

    It was 10 years ago today that the U.S. House voted to impeach President Bill Clinton and send the case on for a trial in the U.S. Senate. Then-U.S. Rep. Rod Blagojevich was just finishing his first term in Congress and voted "no" on all four impeachment counts - two counts of perjury, one count of obstruction of justice, and one count of abuse of power - against the two-term Democratic president. Now that Blagojevich, a two-term Democratic governor, finds himself the subject of impeachment proceedings for alleged abuse of power, his comments have newfound meaning and offer a possible...

    Sen. Hillary Clinton's advisers blasted Sen. Barack Obama's campaign Monday after a major Obama supporter referenced the blue dress that was at the heart of former President Bill Clinton's impeachment scandal. SNIP- "Bill Clinton cannot possibly seriously believe Obama is not a patriot, and cannot possibly be said to be helping -- instead he is hurting -- his own party. B. Clinton should never be forgiven. Period. This is a stain on his legacy, much worse, much deeper, than the one on Monica's blue dress." Fischer was referring to Bill Clinton's comments over the weekend that a race between Sen....

    Gordon Fischer, the former director of the Iowa Democratic Party and co-chair for Sen. Barack Obama's efforts in the Hawkeye State, is still very much involved in making sure Obama gets delegates as the caucus process continues. He's also quite fired up about former President Bill Clinton's comments in front of a North Carolina VFW Hall, which the Obama campaign took to be an impugning of Obama's patriotism. In his blog, Fischer writes: "B. Clinton questions Obama's patriotism. In repsonse (sic), an Obama aide compared B. Clinton to Joe McCarthy. This is patently unfair. To McCarthy. "When Joe McCarthy questioned...

    WASHINGTON - Hillary Rodham Clinton was home in the White House the day her husband had an infamous sexual encounter just outside the Oval Office with intern Monica Lewinsky, according to Sen. Clinton's schedule, released Wednesday among 11,000 pages of papers from her years as first lady. The words of the schedules are dry, but they take on emotional weight when coupled with revelations about the sex scandal that eventually came to light. A year later, the first lady's schedules show her pressing ahead with public events and showing her face as the scandal upended her life and threatened Bill...

    Had an automated telephone call at the office today (yes, I was working) to invite me and all of us, to hear former President Bill Clinton speak at Santa Ana College at the Cook Gynmasium in a rally for his wife. It starts at 8:00 a.m., doors will open at 7:00 a.m. and you can line up two hours earlier. The stadium only holds 1,000 so get there early. Congresswoman Loretta Sanchez is also going to be there, so it's a can't miss opportunity to meet the brilliant Loretta Sanchez and an impeached President, all at the same time. Santa...

    The man crowned as America's first black president for his unprecedented personal connection to the African-American community has abdicated the throne. By injecting himself into the Democratic primary campaign with a series of inflammatory and negative statements, Bill Clinton may have helped his wife's presidential hopes in the long term but at the cost of his reputation with a group of voters that have long been one of his strongest bases of political support. Illinois Senator Barack Obama won an overwhelming victory in South Carolina with the support of African American voters who made up 53 percent of the vote,...

    I've seen up close the two Clintons America knows. He's a big smile, hand locked on your arm and lots of charms. "Hey, come down and speak at my library. I'd like to talk some politics with you." And her? She tends to be, well, hard and brittle. I inherited her West Wing office. Shortly after the 2001 Inauguration, I made a little talk saying I appreciated having the office because it had the only full-length vanity mirror in the West Wing, which gave me a chance to improve my rumpled appearance. The senator from New York confronted me shortly...
