  • 'Relentlessly Negative': Hillary Blasts 2016 Media Coverage for 'Opening Door to Charlatans'

    Hillary Clinton took some more jabs at the media on Sunday, blaming negative coverage for playing a role in her loss in 2016. Clinton made her comments at the Pen America World Voices Festival and said that during her campaign, "the mainstream political coverage was influenced by the right-wing media ecosystem." She pointed to a "false equivalency" in the media's coverage, originally noted by Harvard University professor Thomas Patterson. Clinton also said that negative news imparted by election coverage "has had a leveling effect that opens the doors to charlatans."(snip) Clinton also said that media coverage has been more "straightforward"...

    Imagine, if you will, a cabal of government employees expecting one person to easily win the presidential election, and then the other candidate, the one they couldn’t fathom leading the country, actually wins. Now imagine those government employees aren’t slogging away in the mailrooms of various departments, but they are the upper-echelon of the nation’s intelligence agencies and they resolve to cripple the newly-elected president anyway they can. You don’t have to imagine it, it happened. And we appear to be living in the aftermath of that effort. This is all “fiction,” of course, because none of what follows can...
  • Comey memos show Valerie Jarrett's CNN daughter a useful tool for Democrats

    The memos are out from former FBI Director James Comey, and one of the big takeaways is how useful a tool Valerie Jarrett's daughter, Laura Jarrett, could be for the Hillary Clinton campaign while she was employed at CNN. CNN, it seems, helped orchestrate the set-up of President Trump when it pressed the then-FBI director to have a meeting with Trump so that the matter could be leaked and the press would have a credible reason to report as news all the otherwise slimy opposition research contained within the Steele dossier. Up until then, Fusion GPS, the purveyor of the...

    Former attorney general feels previous president signaled then-FBI director to let Hillary 'off' the hook to protect himself Former Attorney General Michael Mukasey accused James Comey of exonerating 2016 Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton after former President Barack Obama warned the then-FBI director to “let her off” the hook. Comey, whom President Donald Trump fired in May 2017, led the FBI’s investigation into Clinton’s use of a private email server to conduct official business as secretary of state. During an interview Friday on Fox News’ “The Ingraham Angle,” Mukasey said Obama wanted Comey to let Clinton “off” the hook because...
  • Hillary Clinton's popularity has plunged since election, poll finds

    Fox News ^ | 04/18/2018 | Adam Shaw
    Hillary Clinton, well over a year after she lost the 2016 election to President Trump, is less popular than ever, according to a poll released this week. Only 27 percent of those polled had a very or somewhat positive view of the former secretary of state, according to The Wall Street Journal/NBC News poll. That makes her less popular than President Trump, whose popularity registered at 35 percent. It is a new low for her in the poll, which clocked her popularity at 30 percent in August 2017. A Journal analysis of the poll notes that the poll is a...

    New York Times reporter Amy Chozick has a new book coming out about Hillary Clinton’s 2016 campaign. One article outlining the book at the Times is titled “They Were Never Going to Let Me Be President” (which is reportedly what Clinton said after it was clear she lost on election night). "Things were already looking bad when Chelsea Clinton popped the Champagne. https://nyti.ms/2F3JXcW" The title of the tweet was the opening sentence of the article. Chelsea Clinton took exception to that: "Hi @amychozick! The 1st line (“Things were already looking bad when Chelsea Clinton popped the Champagne”) is false. I...

    "They were never going to let me be president," former presidential candidate Hillary Clinton declared on election night, according to a new book about her campaign. Clinton's sycophants struggled among themselves to figure out who would break the news to 'first woman president,' the book, " Chasing Hillary: Ten Years, Two Presidential Campaigns, and One Intact Glass Ceiling ," by New York Times staffer Amy Chozick, reports. Chozick had to travel with the woman for months as part of her traveling press corps, and knew all about what Hillary was like, up close. According to the Daily Beast, citing the...

    Friday on the radio, LevinTV host Mark Levin reacted to the news that the Democratic National Committee is suing Russia, Trump campaign officials, and WikiLeaks over alleged interference in the 2016 election. “The Democrat Party just made a massive mistake,” Levin said. By filing a lawsuit, the Democrats just opened themselves to discovery. Levin explained how a few smart lawyers can turn this around on the Democrats and cause a few headaches over what the Left thought would be a nice publicity stunt. President Trump is on board. Just heard the Campaign was sued by the Obstructionist Democrats. This can...

    Unsatisfied with the lack of results from Special Counsel Robert Mueller's year-long investigation of Trump-Russia collusion to steal the 2016 presidential election from Hillary Clinton, the Democratic National Committee filed a lawsuit demanding billions of dollars in damages and a "rectification" of the election results. In addition to Trump, the suit also named Russia and Wikileaks as co-conspirators in what DNC Chairman Tom Perez called "an act of unimaginable treachery." While not part of the suit, per se, Perez expressed "our profound disappointment with the actions of our government. We counted on them to prevent the election of Trump as...

Judicial Watch Sues DOJ for Comey-Mueller Communications Has Justice Finally Caught Up With Andrew McCabe? The Justice Department Inspector General reportedly issued a criminal referral of former FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe to the U.S. Attorney’s office in Washington. The wheels of justice may have finally caught up with McCabe for repeatedly lying under oath to investigators. It’s high time America had some accountability for his misconduct. We uncovered documents about McCabe’s conflicted handling of the Clinton investigation that should have triggered action...

    One of the stranger Clintonworld moments of the campaign came when David Brock accused the New York Times of a right-wing conspiracy. Crazy people often feed off each other. In Casa Hillary, the human centipede of madness begins with David Brock, then goes through Stanley Blumenthal over to Hillary Clinton. Brock and Blumenthal make Hillary even crazier and more paranoid than she already is. David Brock, whom you may know as the guy behind Media Matters, was already so nuts that he feared right-wing assassins would shoot him on the rooftop. He tried to release a book claiming that Benghazi...

    A pro-Trump political action committee has filed a complaint with the FEC alleging the Hillary Clinton campaign laundered $84 million in contributions from big-name donors, such as Facebook COO Sheryl Sandberg, filmmaker Steven Spielberg, and designer Calvin Klein. The complaint outlines a money laundering scheme that violated multiple campaign finance laws, specifically laws related to limits on contributions by independent donors. As of this week, the complaint has escalated with a lawsuit urging the FEC to take action on the complaint which appears to have been largely ignored by the FEC since being filed in December of 2017. Using both civil...

    After being pressed by former top Bill Clinton political aide George Stephanopoulos on ABC News, James Comey admitted that he had "screwed up a couple of things." The former FBI director wasn't talking about his failure to notify then-President elect Donald Trump that unsubstantiated rumors paid for by his political opposition were helping fuel the creation of a special counsel. No, Comey was admitting that he had made mistakes regarding the 2016 investigation of Hillary Clinton. And no, he wasn't begrudgingly apologizing for failing to recommend criminal charges against the candidate. It's an article of faith among Democrats and many...

    Two of President Trump’s top allies in Congress turned up the heat on Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein this week — warning him that he could be impeached if he doesn’t hand over documents about Hillary Clinton. GOP Reps. Mark Meadows of North Carolina and Jim Jordan of Ohio — leading members of the conservative House Freedom Caucus — put the squeeze on the man overseeing the investigation into Russian election sabotage during a meeting at the Justice Department on Monday, the Washington Post reported. The pair want to revive the investigation into the former secretary of state’s email server,...

    Hillary Clinton sold tons of her books, but, it did her no good whatsoever, except she pocketed a few bucks, which she badly needs. From her perch of $250,000 for a speaking engagement she has now dropped to under $25,000, and she has to fight to get that. In fact, she is now a bonafide has been disliked by most Americans. James Comey trying to match her, has failed miserably, right out of the starting gate. Number one, he will not sell many books, number two his fifteen minutes of fame are long gone. In the verbage of us "street...

While Sean Hannity and other conservative radio and TV talk show hosts played the letter up as if it is a momentous event, the truth is that it makes referrals that are already being acted upon by the Attorney General. Sessions has already and repeatedly made it clear that...

Noting the "selective outrage" against Comey for announcing the case was reopened less than two weeks before the election, Wittes said, "Lynch was a compromised figure with respect to the emails 'matter.'" The mention of a "matter" is a reference to Comey's testimony before the Senate Intelligence Committee...

    Before I am accused of sexism and invoking male privilege let me stipulate that Patrice Comey and Jill McCabe, wives of the former FBI Director and Deputy Director respectively, would not put that designation in the box marked “occupation”.   They no doubt consider themselves liberal progressive political activists who, like their idol Hillary Clinton, do not sit at home necessarily baking cookies for their husbands and families. Patrice Comey’s name was invoked by husband James in the 20/20 interview with former Clinton sycophant George Stephanopoulos, who now plays a journalist on TV, supposedly to humanize Mr. Roboto a tad and...
