    FULL TITLE: Hillary Clinton’s Top Aides Knew from First Minutes that Benghazi Was a Terrorist Attack, E-mails Disclose From the very first moments of the terrorist attack on the U.S. compound in Benghazi on September 11, 2012, then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and her top aides were advised that the compound was under a terrorist attack. In fact, less than two hours into the attack, they were told that the al-Qaeda affiliate in Libya, Ansar al-Sharia, had claimed responsibility. These revelations and others are disclosed by a trove of e-mails and other documents pried from the State Department by Judicial Watch...

    The Hill ^ | 2/25/15 | Meghashyam Mali
    The Clinton Foundation accepted millions from foreign governments when Hillary Clinton was secretary of State, according to a report in the Washington Post. Officials with the foundation disclosed the donations from seven countries, including Kuwait, Qatar, Oman, Algeria, Australia, Norway and the Dominican Republic, to the Post on Wednesday. The report is the latest to shine a light on the Clinton Foundation's fundraising practices, which have attracted scrutiny as Hillary Clinton prepares for a 2016 presidential bid. The foundation during Clinton's tenure was under a self-imposed ban on accepting contributions from foreign governments, meant to address concerns from the Obama...

    The Politico ^ | February 25, 2015 | Josh Gerstein
    Less than a year after Hillary Clinton became secretary of state, former President Bill Clinton asked the State Department to approve a paid, videotaped speech he was asked to make at a gala in Shanghai, sponsored by a Chinese sports foundation. Wealthy hedge fund manager Kai Jiang wanted to pay the former president an undisclosed amount through a charity fund set up by his wife, Crystal Huang, a Chinese TV and film star who regularly serves as fodder for the Chinese tabloids. But unlike hundreds of big-dollar Bill Clinton speeches that sailed through a State Department ethics approval process while...

    New York Times ^ | February 24, 2015 | Amy Chozick and Jonathan Martin
    The last time Hillary Rodham Clinton ran for president, she seemed torn over whether to emphasize her chance to make history, or to play down her gender and reassure voters that she was tough enough for the job. This time there is no question: Mrs. Clinton’s potential to break what she has called “the highest and hardest glass ceiling” is already central to her fledgling 2016 presidential campaign. But rather than the assertive feminism associated with her years as first lady, Mrs. Clinton’s campaign message will be subtler. It will involve frequent references to being a mother and grandmother and...

    First the book, now speech lines? During her speaking event in Silicon Valley, former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton seemingly snagged a campaign line from potential GOP 2016 candidate Carly Fiorina, the former CEO of Hewlett-Packard. Clinton, the presumptive 2016 candidate for the Democratic Party, called on attendees at the conference to “unlock their full potential,” a line Fiorina uses. Ironically enough, Fiorina’s current Super PAC is entitled the “Unlocking Potential Project.” In fact, the mission statement for the Super PAC says the following: “Today, America suffers from self-inflicted wounds. Our nation has everything we need to lead, grow and...

"Newsmax, a conservative news organization, last year pledged $1 million to the Clinton Foundation over a five-year period, according to a spokesman for Chris Ruddy, the organization’s CEO. Mr. Ruddy has been friends with the Clintons since 2007," reports the Journal.

    If the 2016 presidential election were held today, former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton would be in a virtual tie with Florida Gov. Jeb Bush in the race for Virginia, according to a new Quinnipiac Poll released this morning. The survey of potential presidential candidates in the swing states shows that Clinton, a likely Democratic nominee, and Bush, the son and brother of former Republican presidents are tied, 42-42 in Virginia. With a margin of error of +/- 3 percent, Clinton is also in a statistical tie with Kentucky Sen. Rand Paul, with a 44-42 edge, as well as former...

    As if Bill Clinton’s friendship with Jeffrey Epstein weren’t embarrassing enough, the two flew on Epstein’s jet in 2002 to meet with the Sultan of Brunei. Sultan Bolkiah, one of the richest men in the world, not only plans to execute homosexuals, but his brother, Prince Jefri, has been accused of duping American women into “white slavery.” The National Enquirer reports flight logs reveal Epstein — before he was arrested and jailed for soliciting teenage masseuses — picked up the former president at a Japanese naval airport and flew with him to Brunei on May 25, 2002.

    Do You Remember Bill Clinton's Bimbo Eruption in 1992-1998? First of all, the mainstream media did not tell the full story of all the sex allegations against Clinton during his presidency. The cases that received MSM publicity were those of Monica Lewinsky, Jenifer Flowers, Paula Jones, Kathleen Willey, Juanita Broaddrick and Elizabeth Ward Gracen. These cases were a mere 5 percent of the allegations made. The other 95 percent did not receive MSM publicity.

He said: 'I wish you had no narco-trafficking, but it's not really your fault. Basically, we did too good of a job of taking the transportation out of the air and water, and so we ran it over land.

    Ask around: Washington is pretty certain Hillary Clinton is the favorite to win the White House. Democrats have a natural turnout advantage in presidential years, seasoned political operatives reason. Five of the past six popular-vote tallies have gone to the Democratic candidate. And early polls that show Clinton sporting a big lead, especially among women, have strategists wondering how the Republican nominee could ever catch up. But outside of the capital, from Georgia to New York to California, there's another set of political professionals watching this race: academics and model-makers. And based on the data they track, Democrats have little...

    Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton is the clear favorite in Virginia among potential presidential candidates, according to a Christopher Newport University poll released on Thursday. Clinton beats a lineup of potential Republican candidates in hypothetical head-to-head contests, with former Florida Governor Jeb Bush losing by the closest margin, 48 percent to 43 percent. The poll held mixed results for New Jersey Governor Chris Christie. He was the only other Republican contender in the poll to hold Clinton below a majority (49 percent to 42 percent), but his favorable rating among Virginia voters fell from 46 percent a year ago...

    The people who created Barack Obama are already working on their next creation -- and that is Julian Castro. This warning comes in the wake of a 2014 blog piece that claimed Julian Castro would be added to the ticket only to boost Hillary Clinton’s chances of winning Texas in 2016. I disagree that this is the purpose of adding Castro; rather, he is set to become the “Hispanic Obama” as Tom Tancredo’s excellent 2012 piece claimed. The main point here is that it is dangerous to underestimate the left’s ability to create political myths and Julian Castro is the...

Mission accomplished. The just-released poll from YouGov shows Warren ahead of Clinton 31 percent to 24 percent in Iowa and 30-27 in New Hampshire. How do you get results so far afield of any polling we've seen to date? You say a bunch of positive/liberal-friendly things about Warren before you ask the head-to-head question.

    Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton said on [March 25, 2008, that] she made a mistake when she claimed she had come under sniper fire during a trip to Bosnia in 1996 while she was first lady. In a speech in Washington and in several interviews last week Clinton described how she and her daughter, Chelsea, ran for cover under hostile fire shortly after her plane landed in Tuzla, Bosnia. Several news outlets disputed the claim, and a video of the trip showed Clinton walking from the plane, accompanied by her daughter. . . "I did make a mistake in talking...

    A Reuters exclusive published Monday explores the conundrum faced by nonprofits that have received money from Jeffrey Epstein, the billionaire financier arrested and convicted for child prostitution. But buried in the report is an insane statement from a Rutgers professor saying that he didn’t think he should return the money… because he didn’t think Epstein did anything all that bad. Professor Robert Trivers told Reuters that Epstein was “a person of integrity who should be given credit for serving time in prison” and for settling civil lawsuits brought by underage girls. ”Did he get an easy deal? Did he buy...

    The Wall Street Journal has a revealing report on the hedge fund Eaglevale Partners LP, which is run by Hillary Clinton's son-in-law, Marc Mezvinsky.

    Hillary Clinton and Mitt Romney each finished second in their party’s primaries when they ran for president in 2008, but they took dramatically different routes to arrive at the same result — literally, in a way. A deeper look into the candidates’ campaign expenditures reveals that Clinton spent more than nine times as much as Romney did on private jets during the 2008 race. An analysis of public documents by National Review Online shows that Clinton took more than $19.2 million worth of private flights during the primaries before dropping out when then-senator Barack Obama finally built an insurmountable lead....

    It really breaks your heart when you see trust that is so cynically manipulated “We came, we saw, he died.”—Then Secretary of State Hillary Clinton laughingly gloating over the death of Muammar Gaddafi (1942-2011) Clinton was in Tripoli earlier this week for talks with leaders of Libya’s National Transitional Council (NTC). [A] reporter asked if [Clinton thought] Qaddafi’s death had anything to do with her surprise visit to show support for the Libyan people. “No,” she replied, before rolling her eyes and saying “I’m sure it did” with a chuckle. —Corbett Daly, “CBS News” 10/20/11 “... there was a distortion...

Those friends, according to Roberts, included the Duke of York, now fifth in line to the throne, and celebrity lawyer Alan Dershowitz (best known for getting Claus von Bulow’s conviction for murdering his wife overturned).
