    Huffington Post reporter Mayhill Fowler reveals today that she intentionally ignored reporting former President Bill Clinton's adulterous relationship with an unnamed mistress during his wife Hillary's campaign for the 2008 Democratic party presidential nomonation.Fowler writes she knew the state of the Clintons' marriage had national security implications as she notes that Democratic voters were falsely comforted thinking the former two-term president would be by Hillary's side in bed at the White House when the "3 a.m." phone call came. But that was not enough for her to report the truth so the voters could decide for themselves. Huffington Post, the...
  • Game Change: Obama, Reid, Clintons, Edwards and Biden Come Off Looking Very Bad

    In the new book Game Change, Obama, Reid, the Clintons, the Edwards and Biden come off looking very bad indeed. Written by John Heilemann and Mark Halperin, it chronicles juicy and scandalous, behind-the-scenes, alleged happenings in the 2008 presidential election. Even before its release yesterday, Game Change claimed its first political casualty in racism-challenged Harry Reid who belittled the black community as well as accused Americans of being racist in general. Though it also covers Palin and McCain, one would be hard-pressed to argue that it's the Republicans who come off looking the worst from these insider accounts that are...

    ...Many people say if Obama has problems with his constitutional qualifications the Clintons would have made it know. Would they now? The reason why the Clintons did not push the constitutionally disqualifying evidence of Barack Hussein Obama II is simply because they were being set up to be racists. This happened early on and continues to this day. Anyone who disagrees with the One is a racist, and an infidel. Perhaps Hillary is reminding us what her husband Bill said, when it became apparent that the undemocratic Democratic party aligned the elites behind Obama against the majority of popular votes...

    The Clintons are walking hand in hand in Bermuda this week. The Obamas will be vacationing in Martha's Vineyard starting this weekend. Sounds like a lot of R&R for Democratic leaders on the East Coast. Unfortunately, Mother Nature has other ideas. Hurricane Bill could cause plenty of havoc for Washington's power couples starting Saturday. Near-hurricane force winds are expected to ruin the Clintons' romantic walks on the pink sand beaches of an island where Chelsea was conceived 30 years ago. While the brunt of the storm is expected to pass 100 miles west of the Clintons' location, they still could...

    Today President Obama has separate meetings at the White House with his former rivals, Bill and Hillary Clinton; and while the topics of discussion may be about diplomacy, one issue not likely to come up is that recent polls show the Clintons are surging in job approval polls, and the president’s are hitting new lows. The numbers represent a striking reversal of fortune for the Clintons, whose were supposed to have been eclipsed by Obama’s historic presidency. Instead, their stature has grown as Obama’s has shrunk Just 53 percent of Americans approve of Obama’s job performance, compared with 66...

    John F. Kennedy was sworn into office. Roger Maris was hitting 61 home runs. The Berlin wall was erected. Much was happening in the first six months of 1961. But an extensive WND investigation into events leading up to the birth of Barack Obama, who would become America's first black president 47 years later, leaves many unanswered questions about the whereabouts and activities of the woman he claims as his mother. The timeline for Obama's mother, Ann Dunham, reveals an approximately six-and-a-half month interval in which there is no documentation for her whereabouts, from Jan. 31, 1961, when she concluded...

Post Executive Editor Marcus Brauchli killed the "Mouthpiece Theater" series Wednesday after pulling the latest episode from the paper's Web site Friday. In the video, columnist Dana Milbank and White House correspondent and blogger Chris Cillizza appeared in smoking jackets to discuss the kinds of beer politicians might drink. Milbank said he couldn't reveal to whom President Barack Obama would serve a drink called "Mad B---- Beer." That line...

Government prosecutors allege Mr. Torres is a criminal who over the past 20 years has used murder, theft and intimidation to build his business empire. Those two views of the 52-year-old Mexican national who grew up in Los Angeles will clash during a federal-court trial scheduled to begin on Tuesday. Prosecutors accuse Mr. Torres of heading a racketeering scheme since the 1980s, using money and force to battle rivals and expand his business enterprises....

    NEW YORK (AP) — Terry McAuliffe's crushing defeat in Virginia's gubernatorial primary is the latest blow to former President Bill Clinton's political legacy, still reeling from Hillary Rodham Clinton's loss to Barack Obama in last year's Democratic presidential contest. McAuliffe, a longtime fundraiser and close friend of both Clintons, brought money and attention to an off-year election that otherwise would have commanded little notice outside Virginia. Bill Clinton appeared at five rallies across the state for McAuliffe, lent his voice to radio commercials and recorded telephone endorsements to help get out the vote. Clinton also attended a fundraiser at McAuliffe's...

    Asked why he was naming some of his rivals to top administration jobs, President Lyndon B. Johnson said it best: “I’d rather have them inside the tent pissing out than outside pissing in.” President Obama seems to echo Johnson’s management style in his handling of Bill and Hillary Clinton. By bringing them into his inner circle, he has marginalized them both and sharply reduced their freedom of action. It may appear odd to describe a secretary of State as marginalized, but Obama has surrounded Hillary with his people and carved up her jurisdiction geographically. Former Sen. George Mitchell (D-Maine) is...

Hillary Clinton was asked to comment: "I thought the cultural performance was fascinating," she cooed. Pressed again on Ortega's vitriol, Hillary replied: "To have those first-class Caribbean entertainers all on one stage and to see how much was done in such a...

    WASHINGTON -- I have been following Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton's first foreign policy jaunt with my customary discernment in matters regarding the Clintons. Frankly I am very uncomfortable with her title, secretary of state. She termed her Asian trip a "listening tour." Does that bring back memories? She met with foreign leaders but she commanded more attention for meeting with "giggly" students on campus and appearing on an Indonesian variety show called "Awesome." There she discoursed on the pop culture of teenagers but demurred when asked to sing. She mugged for the paparazzi, glad-handed crowds and explained her...

Currie confirmed Socks' death Friday evening and said she was "heartbroken." She did not give details, referring calls to the Clinton Foundation office.

The investigation turned on a single sentence in which Magaziner states, "Only federal government employees serve as members of the interdepartmental working group."

    WASHINGTON – Hillary Rodham Clinton, President-elect Barack Obama's choice for secretary of state, rejected calls Tuesday for more details about donors to her husband's foundation, saying she has revealed enough to avoid even the hint of conflicts. An Associated Press review found that Clinton stepped in at least a half-dozen times on issues involving businesses and others who later gave to the charity. Clinton said as secretary of state she will not be influenced by her husband's contributors, which include foreign governments. "It will not be in the atmosphere," Clinton said.

Obama's advisers have begun looking into Bill Clinton's foundation, which distributes millions of dollars to Africa to help with development, to ensure that there is no conflict of interest. But Democrats do not believe that the vetting is likely to be a problem. Clinton would be well placed to become the country's dominant voice in foreign affairs, replacing Condoleezza Rice.

    When Bill Clinton gives his prime-time speech to the Democratic National Convention Wednesday in Denver, aides for presumptive party nominee Barack Obama collectively will be holding their breath for fear of what the former president might say. Clinton, who has had a testy relationship with the Obama camp throughout the presidential nominating season, initially had been slow to throw his support behind the junior senator from Illinois. That, coupled with Obama’s decision to place former rival Hillary Clinton’s name on the nomination ballot in a gesture to show party unity and recognize her accomplishments, is causing jitters among Obama supporters.

    Excerpt - OMAHA, Neb. (AP) -- Database provider InfoGroup Inc. said Thursday its founder Vinod Gupta has stepped down as chief executive. Gupta's resignation Wednesday was part of a proposed settlement of a shareholder lawsuit, documents filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission said. The lawsuit alleged the company misspent millions -- some of it on former President Bill Clinton and his wife, Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton. ~ snip ~

    After Barockstar’s near fatal empty suit performance at Saddleback Saturday, the Obama spin machine is in damage control overdrive. I wonder if they‘ve had time to realize that they have been triangulated by the Clinton war room and set up to take a fall at the DNC convention? That old Clinton war room stench is in the air again… It seems the empty suit and his empty headed staff is not quite up to speed on Clintonian strategeries.

    ... It seems like just yesterday that our beloved Bambi was all dressed up like a kid on the first day of school, jaunting off to strange places with names even funnier than his. And although wet behind the ears, he wowed 'em wherever he went. There he was, marching smartly beside Afghan president Karzai, smiling that winningly goofy smile of his, and every media outlet I saw said that he was polishing his foreign-policy credentials. It was like that scene in Evita where Evita sails off to Europe to show Franco and Mussolini that she's not just some cheap...

    Soon after he wrapped up the Democratic nomination in June, Sen. Barack Obama invited some of Sen. Hillary Clinton's key financial supporters—"bundlers" in the trade—to a private cocktail party and dinner in Washington. These were the more practical types, many of them women, who loved Hillary but the Democratic Party even more. They felt the need to give face-to-face advice to their new champion. One of them, speaking to me on condition of anonymity, said she pleaded with the senator to spend quality time with a wounded and therefore potentially disruptive Bill Clinton. "I told Barack, 'Have dinner. Clear the...

    Where were the career people on whom we count to keep the department honest? The latest report concludes that the two most senior people responsible for protecting immigration judges from political influence had "sufficient evidence . . . to have realized that political or ideological affiliations played a role" and that they should have spoken up to others who could do something. The same criticism was leveled at those who ran the office overseeing the honors program and lateral hiring. Where were they? It is disappointing that they failed to act forcefully to protect the department they served. Attorney General...

    It's amazing how much the Obamas are like the Clintons -- who are now attacked by the same people who used to kiss the ground they stepped on. Carl Bernstein talks about Hillary's "dark side."  Bill, says an MSNBC blogger, is a serial liar.  Well, thanks for performing your journalistic duty to the American people.  It only took sixteen years for our media to tell us what was clear to the rest of the world before the Clintons ever got elected in 1992. This is typical of the dismal human judgment of liberals -- it takes them more than a...
