    While delivering her first major economic policy speech of her campaign, Clinton today called out Jeb Bush, Marco Rubio and Scott Walker by name to contrast her policies -- focused on strengthening the middle class and increasing wages -- against those of her front-running Republican rivals. In her remarks, delivered at the New School in downtown Manhattan, Clinton first took aim at former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush for his recent comment that “people need to work longer hours.” (A remark Bush’s campaign said was about unemployment.) “You may have heard Governor Bush say last week that Americans just need to...

    A majority of voters in three key presidential swing states view Hillary Clinton as not honest and trustworthy, according to a new poll out Wednesday. In Florida, 51% of voters hold the negative view of Clinton, compared to 43% who feel she is trustworthy. In Ohio, 53% of voters find Clinton not trustworthy, compared to 40% who do. And in Pennsylvania, 54% of voters don't find her honest, while 40% do. Compounding the possible issue for Clinton, being honest and trustworthy is also the top issue to voters in all three early states.

    By itself, making money shouldn't be an issue for Bill and Hillary Clinton; after all, so many of our past presidents have been wealthy. By itself, Bill Clinton having a shell LLC wouldn't be an issue either. But when you add the two together, you see that the Clintons have a Mitt Romney problem on their hands -- wealth and "otherness" that voters might not be able to relate to, especially when the likes of Bernie Sanders are campaigning against wealth. Of course, there's one BIG difference between Hillary Clinton and Mitt Romney: Romney wanted to cut taxes for the...

    Hillary Clinton‘s stature has been battered after more than a month of controversy over her fundraising and email practices, but support for her among Democrats remains strong and unshaken, a new Wall Street Journal/NBC News poll finds. In just seven weeks, a period in which Mrs. Clinton formally began her presidential campaign, the share of people with a negative view of her jumped to 42% from 36% in last month’s survey, and only a quarter of registered voters said they viewed her as honest and straightforward, down from 38% last summer. But she remains highly regarded among Democrats, with 76%...

    Her campaign barely three weeks old, Hillary Clinton already has been attacked by Republicans on everything from donations to her family's charitable foundation, to her tenure as secretary of state and her ties to Wall Street. But her rivals, and the political action committees that support them, are treading more carefully on one incendiary subject: her age. If elected in November 2016, Clinton would be, at 69, the second-oldest person to take the presidential oath for the first time, behind only Ronald Reagan, who turned 70 weeks after being sworn into office in 1981. "It’s unwise to attack a political...

    Long before her entrance into the Twitter-verse and subsequent self-declaration as a "pantsuit aficionado," Hillary Clinton left little doubt that she was, well, a pantsuit aficionado. Tangerine, candy apple red, lemon yellow—the former Secretary of State hasn't found a juicy hued suit that she hasn't just loved. And why should she? They're her staple! Mrs. Clinton's pantsuit kick isn't anything new. Her passion for pantsuits began in the early '90s, and since she's treated the American political scene to a stylish parade of rainbow-hued suits. From her time as a Senator to her 2008 presidential campaign bid, Mrs. Clinton has...

This is how Hillary Clinton "made" $100,000 off of an initial "investment" of $1000 in cattle futures back in the early 80's. It was textbook money laundering.

The Washington Times reports that the stock sold at $3.50 a share despite being millions of dollars in the red, and the Clintons have not released the name of the sap buyer who shelled out the cash. Scandal or snorer — and do the connections to China portend worse revelations?

    Fresh off of pushing for an expansion of S-CHIP into the middle class and adding tens of billions of dollars on insurance subsidies, Hillary Clinton decided to create another entitlement program for her cradle-to-grave nanny state vision. In her address to the Congressional Black Caucus, Hillary said she'd like to spend $20 billion each year on checks to newborn infants: Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Rodham Clinton said Friday that every child born in the United States should get a $5,000 "baby bond" from the government to help pay for future costs of college or buying a home.

    MIAMI - "A clean sweep" is needed at the White House because President Bush has fostered "a culture of cronyism, corruption and incompetence," Hillary Rodham Clinton said Saturday. The Democratic presidential candidate told nearly 1,000 women at a fundraiser that she would have much work to do at the White House if she won election in 2008. "After eight years of the Bush administration, we are going to be shocked by what we find," the New York senator and former first lady said.

The author of the book is Jerry Zeifman, who was counsel to the House Judiciary Committee for 17 years. He was chief counsel to the committee during the Watergate episode, a role he chronicled in an earlier book, “Without Honor: The Crimes of Camelot and the Impeachment of President Nixon.” Hillary was a committee staffer at the time. And Zeifman’s new book “Hillary’s Pursuit of Power” is based in large part on his personal experiences with Hillary. A press release...

    Watching Senator Hillary Clinton play to the media, in the controversy over an Arab company managing U.S. ports, provided another important lesson in how our reporters operate by a double standard. After a Senate hearing on the matter, during a "press availability," reporters were desperate to get Mrs. Clinton's views on the matter, as if she had any credentials in the area. She spouted forth like an expert, as if she has been on guard against foreign domination and had an established reputation as the high protector of U.S. sovereignty.

The New York Democrat has had no well-known GOP opponent in her bid for re-election since prosecutor Jeanine Pirro dropped out in frustration in December. The Republican expected to step in, former Yonkers Mayor John Spencer, is a no-name in most of the state, and polls show Clinton with a commanding lead against all potential challengers....

Speaking at an academic conference examining his presidency here Thursday, Clinton challenged historian Douglas Brinkley's comments in a newspaper interview that Clinton would be deemed a great president were it not for his impeachment. "I completely disagree with that," Clinton said in his speech at Hofstra University. "You can agree with that statement, but only if you think impeachment was justified. Otherwise, it...

    When asked if she has decided to run for President, Senator Hillary Clinton has a stock response: She’s focused on her re-election fight here in New York in 2006. But on Oct. 14, when Mrs. Clinton revealed her early 32-to-1 financial edge over her likely rival next year, another unspoken answer crystallized: Mrs. Clinton is already running for President, and next year’s election is just part of that campaign. Campaign-finance regulations encourage members of Congress to store up money in Congressional accounts for use in a Presidential race. From Mrs. Clinton’s perspective, then, her prospective Republican opponent, Jeanine Pirro, is...

He made 12 visits to her, gave money to her, had dinner with her, and posed for pictures with her and her husband. 2 - Pirro's husband has sexually assaulted a string...

    This summer, Hillary Clinton is reportedly rolling in dough. New York's junior senator has amassed a $12.6 million war chest for her re-election bid next year, raising half that amount from April to June alone. Clinton's latest campaign reports, filed on July 15 with the Federal Election Commission, became public on July 28. Her second-quarter contributions totaled $6,108,413. Combined with interest and refunds, the campaign took in a total of $6,145,305 during the period. More than $5.8 million came from individuals—65,691 in total. Those filings sprawl across hundreds of pages, so finding out exactly where her money came from in...

    Hillary Clinton wants to be the darling of the left and the candidate of the center, and why not? More than any other Democrat, save one—her husband—she knows what it takes to win, and she fully and completely comprehends the opposition. Liberals went ballistic this week when Clinton called for a ceasefire among Democrats at a much ballyhooed appearance before the DLC, the centrist Democratic Leadership Council that helped elect her husband president. Clinton’s “Rodney King Moment,” is all about 2008, says a former John Kerry adviser: “What she’s saying is, ‘Why can’t we all get along and support me?’”...

    TEN years ago, Kevin Costner's career took a turn for the worse when he made a hugely expensive film called ''Waterworld.'' Since then, the film has become synonymous with megalomania, hubris and all the other fancy words that journalists like to use when things fall apart and the center will not hold. But unlike his other movies ''Wyatt Earp'' and ''The Postman,'' which are really bad, ''Waterworld'' is simply a dumb, expensive dud, not an epic, studio-imploding disaster on the order of ''Heaven's Gate'' or ''Battlefield Earth.'' If you are in the market for a truly horrendous movie, one of...

    The mastermind of Hillary Clinton's successful 2000 Senate race is urging the Democratic Party's liberal wing not to be upset over her alliance with the moderate Democratic Leadership Council, assuring critics that Hillary is still a left-winger at heart. "It's much more important to look at what she does and how she votes, and not that she has associated herself with the DLC," Harold Ickes told the Washington Times on Friday. Ickes reminded that Bill Clinton also came under fire from party liberals for his more centrist rhetoric. But they stuck with him because "his record in totality was extraordinarily...

And, again, I can't speak for the hundreds and hundreds of people who worked in the White House, and perhaps someone, in a moment of what I would consider a terrible lapse of judgment, said something or did something that then...

    Senator Hillary Clinton's office is actively trying to discourage interviewers from giving TV time to Ed Klein, author of the controversial bestseller "The Truth About Hillary," Washington Post media critic Howard Kurtz confirmed on Sunday. "A spokesman for Senator Clinton told me that when news organizations call, they do make the argument, why give this guy airtime," Kurtz said, while hosting CNN's "Reliable Sources." Kurtz's comment is the first by a mainstream journalist acknowledging that Sen. Clinton is actively trying to suppress Klein's book in a campaign first reported by NewsMax Monday morning. After being booked on numerous TV Shows,...

    Hillary Clinton - Kent Calhoun Since my letter postulating how I believed Hillary Clinton managed to produce her commodity profits, many things I speculated have been confirmed as fact. The White House officially retracted the version that Hillary produced her own profits. James Blair, Tyson Foods attorney, was credited with producing Mrs. Clinton's $100,000 profits despite the fact he lost over $5 million dollars in his personal account. Hillary's broker, Red Bone, was revealed in court testimony, regularly locked his office door and assigned account numbers after the close of trading. These trades were carried in an Omnibus Account. Bone...

    It is a cast worthy of a political thriller: a former convict whose claims about a former president and first lady spurred a criminal investigation; a prominent senator's brother-in-law, who worked undercover for federal agents looking into the case; political enemies of the former first family trying to dig up fresh dirt; and some of Hollywood's biggest stars. All these characters will share some of the spotlight beginning Tuesday in a Los Angeles courtroom, where David F. Rosen, the former fund-raising director for Senator Hillary Rodham Clinton, will go on trial on charges that he illegally underreported the cost of...
