    Bill Kristol and other Never-Trump Republicans have done extensive polling and talked to potential candidates and financial backers about how to stop Donald Trump, according to sources familiar with those efforts. Their continued work to halt Trump, the presumptive Republican nominee, comes as Rep. Adam Kinzinger, a prominent GOP congressman from Illinois and Iraq War veteran, has decided to pass on an independent bid.

    It’s About Us I turn 56 in a few weeks and I’ve never even bothered to register to vote before because I’ve always suspected something that so many people are finding out to be true this year; that we do not live in an authentic democracy and haven’t for a very long time. Don’t judge me for this, I’ve been disenfranchised as long as I can remember. We assassinated our own president in 1963, I lost friends from my high school in Vietnam, Nixon was a blatant crook and I’ve never felt there was ever a candidate that represented me...

    An investigation into the websites backing the so-called Renegade Party confirms that neoconservative columnist Bill Kristol has been plotting an anti-Trump political party since before a single vote was cast. Kristol’s Renegade Party was set up on January 10th — nearly a month before the Iowa Caucus. The move suggests that Kristol (or at least those close to him) had been planning an independent bid all along.

Specifically, investigators were scrutinizing a $120,000 donation McAuliffe received from Wang Wenliang, a Chinese businessman, who was also a donor to the Clinton foundation, pledging $2 million. The Daily Mail has obtained footage that shows the two men entering Hillary Clinton's residence off D.C.'s Embassy row as they attended a fundraiser on September 30, 2013.

    In the massive Brooklyn Headquarters of the Hillary campaign, they know something is happening, but they don’t know what it is (to paraphrase Bob Dylan’s taunting lyric). A fundraising email sent out by campaign manager Robbie Mook is startlingly honest in admitting they have a problem. Ben Wolfgang of the Washington Times got ahold of a copy and explains: Faced with sagging fundraising numbers, Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign on Friday appealed to supporters and admitted it was wrong in assuming Donald Trump couldn’t possibly win a general election contest. Clinton campaign manager Robby Mook told supporters in an email that...

You can actually read Matsell's entire book here. Hillary Clinton has been caught lying dead to rights. We've watched for the last couple of years as her email story has come undone piece by piece.

Within 30 minutes, both Democratic presidential campaigns happily agreed to fill out the questionnaire. The campaign of Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders completed the questionnaire and returned it on time. But two weeks after agreeing to complete the questionnaire, the Clinton campaign...

    When former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton neglected to surrender all her official emails upon leaving office, the department’s inspector general acknowledged that she violated federal record-keeping laws. What he didn’t report was that this has been her standard practice for decades, since at least her years in the White House while serving as first lady — and on an even grander scale. During those years Clinton was at the center of numerous scandals, including Whitewater, Travelgate and Filegate, which were also the subject of investigations.

    Now what? Pretty clear she broke the law in an attempt to disable FOIA inquiries and hide whatever she was hiding from public view. Did I mention she had the Ambassador to Kenya fired during her tenure for doing pretty much the same thing? I like that little detail. Shows real determination on her part. But what now? If she isn't indicted, we have moved into a totally new dimension where outright and provable corruption is permitted by high officials. On the other hand, if she is indicted, we are in banana republic zone where candidates for President are under...

    01 - Clinton violated a Non-Disclosure Agreement (NDA) she signed upon becoming Secretary by retaining records with classified information. 02 - Clinton violated State Department regulations forbidding the storage of classified information anywhere other than "the chancery" or "consulate" even for "reasons of personal convenience." 03 - Clinton used a BlackBerry to transmit classified information despite State Deparment policy prohibiting its use. 04 - Clinton violated State Department policy by giving classified material to her lawyer despite the fact that he lacked an "approved classified material storage facility." 05 - Clinton violated federal rules requiring that she turn over work-related...

    Mills was to take a deposition yesterday. She fought it in court and was still required to appear. Nothing in any sources. Did the deposition occur? Why no mention in the press? Is this the end for Hillary or "more of the same stalling tactics"?

    Ahead of Montana's primaries June 7, both Bill Clinton and Donald Trump visited Billings, Montana's largest city. The difference was turnout: 300 people showed up to see Bill Clinton, while 7,500 appeared for Donald Trump. The Clinton campaign knew there would be low turnout, they booked a room at a middle school. The Trump campaign booked the largest arena in town. http://www.greatfallstribune.com/story/news/local/2016/05/26/trump-fires-crowd-billings/85008048/ Montana is a purple state, sending to DC both Republicans and Democrats over the years. This year the excitement appears to be for Trump, and in the college towns (Missoula and Bozeman), for Bernie. There are very few...

  • Why Is Jake Tapper Afraid to Ask Hillary Clinton About ‘Clinton Cash’?

    CNN anchor Jake Tapper has interviewed Democratic Presidential candidate Hillary Clinton on at least four separate occasions since she announced her White House bid last June — but has yet to ask the former Secretary of State a single question concerning the alarming allegations laid out in meticulous detail in the New York Times best-selling book Clinton Cash, written by Government Accountability Institute President and Breitbart Senior Editor-at-Large Peter Schweizer. Tapper, an alumnus of ABC News and Salon.com, interviewed Clinton last October, once in February, again in April, and earlier this month. Each time, he failed to ask the Democratic...

    Hillary Clinton has been groping around for a campaign slogan. She's just unveiled her seventh meaningless catchphrase. How about "Still lying and breaking all the rules"? That one probably wouldn't help her campaign much -- though with leftist voters these days, you have to wonder -- but it has the virtue of being more accurate than her latest mealy-mouthed rallying cry, "Stronger together" -- as if anyone, anywhere considers her unifying. It seems the more this campaign moves forward the less popular Clinton is -- even to Democratic voters, as polls show Bernie Sanders now in a statistical tie with...

    Obama administration is trying to prevent former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton from being deposed in an ongoing open records case connected to her use of a private email server. Late Thursday evening, the Justice Department filed a court motion opposing the Clinton deposition request from conservative legal watchdog Judicial Watch, claiming that the organization was trying to dramatically expand the scope of the lawsuit.
