  • Obama may be Ensnared in the Clinton Email Scandal

    02/08/2016 2:29:14 AM PST · by Cincinatus' Wife · 48 replies
    The American Thinker ^ | February 8, 2015 | Jonathan F. Keiler
    Perhaps President Obama's involvement is the reason that the FBI has not yet referred charges to the Justice Department in the Hillary Clinton email case. It may be metastasizing so quickly and so dangerously that not only are agents and lawyers within the agency having trouble keeping up with new evidence of wrongdoing, but that the scandal itself now threatens a constitutional crisis. The Department of State's refusal to release 18 emails exchanged between President Obama and Clinton through her unsecured home server at best creates a conflict of interest for Obama (as explained by Andrew McCarthy here) while at...

    The Huffington Post's Huffpost Politics ^ | February 7, 2016 | Natalie Jackson, Senior polling editor
    Pollsters have been busy in New Hampshire the last few days. As of this post's publication, HuffPost Pollster's charts have added 15 polls of the New Hampshire primaries that were conducted after last Monday's Iowa caucuses -- nine of the Republican primary and six of the Democratic primary. If you include all of the daily tracking polls, which are only added to the charts every other day because of their overlapping dates, there have been 22 poll releases since Wednesday. If that seems excessive or ridiculous, that's because it is. And there will be several more -- those numbers above...
  • Transportation funding expected to fall $6B short in Pennsylvania

    The Pittsburgh Tribune-Review ^ | February 1, 2016 | Melissa Daniels
    Pennsylvania will be about $6 billion short of being able to fund all the projects legislators promised their constituents during passage of Act 89, the transportation funding bill of 2013. Secretary Leslie Richards will break the news to the Senate Transportation Committee when she testifies Tuesday, according to a copy of her testimony obtained by the Tribune-Review. Pennsylvania's 12-year transportation plan covers about 2,800 projects at a cost of about $34 billion. But that exceeds the $28 billion in revenue projected to come in for that time frame. “The Corbett administration over promised projects by at least $6 billion compared...

    Young women in New Hampshire were offended by the way Hillary Clinton uses her gender to garner support, an MSNBC survey revealed Friday. When MSNBC anchor Tamron Hall asked young female voters about Hillary Clinton's claim on Wednesday that she is not an establishment candidate because she is a woman, they responded negatively. One of the respondents said that she did not like how Clinton assumed that her feminism was identical to the feminism of all women. "I also am a woman. I also face discrimination as being a woman. Her feminism does not represent my feminism, and I think...

    Voters keep sending the political class a message, and the political class continues to misread it. It is as if the political class doesn't want to understand voters because doing so would threaten their presumed expertise (and, in turn, their careers and pocketbooks). Analysis of Iowa's caucus results made clear that the Democratic Party has realigned: It is more cosmopolitan in academic circles, more socialist among the youth and aging baby-boomers, and more anti-establishment overall. In short, it is left of left. Yet the post-caucus coverage largely zeroed in on the personalities of former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and...

    The Iowa Democratic caucus which I've already described as akin to the Marxist Zimbabwe Farmers-workers confabs is over, and it appears -- as Mark Steyn ably notes -- "almost certain" that Hillary Clinton did not win it. If Iowa were one of those banana republics in which the president-for-life has been prevailed upon to hold an election and Jimmy Carter and a bunch of UN observers had flown in to certify it, none of the above would pass muster. But in the Democrat Party it does:[snip] In effect, Hillary and Bernie fought Iowa to a draw. But a miss is...

    Washington, DC Councilman Kenyan McDuffie proposed and the City Council unanimously adopted a measure that will pay criminals to refrain from committing crimes. Under the plan, residents with a sufficiently impressive rap-sheet will be paid up to $9,000 in cash per year for each year they aren't convicted of a crime. "This is not some lame-brained scheme that any smart aleck can game," McDuffie boasted. "Only those who can document their criminal behavior will be eligible for the stipend.

But what if Sanders loses the Democratic nomination?

Bernie Sanders. The former secretary of state squeaked by the democratic socialist, hauling in 49.9 percent of state delegate equivalents versus Sanders’ 49.6 percent.

    In the announcement speech for his presidential campaign, Donald Trump railed against Obamacare. "We have a disaster called the big lie: Obamacare," Trump declared. "I would repeal and replace the big lie, Obamacare." Well, that sounds like something a Republican candidate would say. But there is one problem: Trump helped finance the Democratic takeover of Congress in 2006 - which put in place the liberal majority that passed Obamacare over the objections of congressional Republicans. And he continued to support a Democratic Senate majority after Obamacare...

    President Barack Obama, when he leaves office in less than a year, will no doubt choose to believe that his legacy will consist of deliberate accomplishments, such as Obamacare, efforts to fight climate change, and the Iran nuclear weapons deal. However, the Washington Post recently suggested that Obama’s main legacy will be making more Republican voters. The implications will be far reaching for the course of American politics for decades to come.

Hillary Clinton's campaign for president is instructing its Iowa caucus leaders to -- in certain cases -- throw support to former Maryland Gov. Martin O'Malley, with the goal blocking her main opponent, Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders, from securing additional delegates. The tactical move is rooted in the complex math of the Iowa caucuses Monday night, where the campaign is looking to defeat Sanders in a state whose caucus-goers have historically backed progressive challengers. A precinct captain, Jerome Lehtola, confirmed to BuzzFeed News that the campaign has trained precinct captains...

Based on the campaigns of Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders and their debates so far, you'd think the answers would be things like income inequality, "taking on" Wall Street,...

Appearing before House Democrats at a retreat in Baltimore, Obama said the country is "doing a lot better" than when he took office, citing progress against Islamic State forces and curbing Iran's nuclear program - as well as lower gas prices, 18 million people gaining health insurance and 5 percent unemployment. In a not-so-veiled shot at GOP presidential front-runner Donald Trump, Obama said the...

The city of Flint is in the middle of a water disaster, causing lead poisoning and other health problems. Presidential candidate Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) criticized "every level of government" for the crisis, said officials should be held accountable for exposing residents to "poisoned water," and called the impact on Flint residents "heartbreaking." Cruz made good on his rhetoric, as his campaign gave out bottled water to Flint women in crisis pregnancy centers,...

You know, he was willing to reconcile and forgive. And I don't know what our country might have been like had he...

"If offered, @IAVA will decline donations from Trump's event. We need strong policies from candidates, not to be used for political stunts," he said.

    Democrats should encourage former Kansas Governor Kathleen Sebelius to run for president. She would be a far better choice for president than Hillary Clinton who would never have gotten any place in politics if her husband Bill hadn’t served as President of the United States.

    The gloves are coming off in Iowa, as the leading candidates in both parties battle fiercely for advantage before Monday’s caucuses. Tensions are rising on the Democratic side, with Hillary Clinton’s team trying to rebuff the advance of a newly aggressive Bernie Sanders. Among Republicans, the long-standing “bromance” between Donald Trump and Ted Cruz has given way to open hostilities.
  • Obama, Sanders to meet privately

    When a big corporation is charged with antitrust or regulatory violations, and fined billions of dollars, have you ever wondered where that money goes? You might assume that it is deposited in the United States Treasury, for general purposes, or that it goes to victims of the companies’ misconduct. In some cases, you’d be right, but it turns out an awful lot of that money is being funneled straight into progressive non-profits, at the express direction of the Department of Justice. According to an exposé in the Wall Street Journal, the DOJ often mandates as part of settlements that the...

    Jane Mayer of The New Yorker has a new book out: “Dark Money: The Hidden History of the Billionaires Behind the Rise of the Radical Right.” It’s mostly about those old devils the Koch brothers. Charles and David Koch are billionaires. They own a very big company. They also are very prominent philanthropists, giving hundreds of millions to cancer research, concert halls and other worthy causes. But what makes them hated and feared by progressives such as Mayer is their political work. They help fund some organizations and foundations, some purely educational, some partisan. To listen to the left, they...

    As ISIS rises, Democrat politicians forge down a slippery slope to destroy America’s First Amendment and prohibit all discussion of Islamic terrorism. After the San Bernadino ISIS-inspired terrorist attack, which left 14 dead and 22 others injured, Attorney General Loretta Lynch, America’s top law enforcement attorney, explained that her biggest fear was not more ISIS-inspired terrorist attacks, but “the rise of anti-Muslim rhetoric."
