    Donald Trump defended and expanded upon his attacks on the Clintons on Tuesday, asserting once more that mentioning former President Bill Clinton's past infidelities was "fair game" if Hillary Clinton kept hitting him for his own views on women, bringing up Monica Lewinsky and Paula Jones as examples. During a telephone interview with NBC's "Today," Savannah Guthrie asked the Republican presidential candidate about an early-morning tweet in which he recalled the former president being called a racist for comments he made while campaigning for his wife against then-Sen. Barack Obama in 2008. -snip- "I can get you a list, and...

    WASHINGTON — Donald Trump escalated his attacks on Hillary Clinton Sunday — by bashing her for her husband’s infidelity. “I think he is fair game,” Trump told Fox and Friends of Bill Clinton, “because his presidency was really considered to be very troubled to put it mildly because of all of the things she’s talking to me about. She’s mentioning sexism.” Over the Christmas season, Trump went on a Twitter bender warning Clinton to “be careful” when she accuses him of sexism. He implied Sunday that warning meant he’s ready to unload on Bill for his sexual exploits. “He’ll come...
  • White House Appointee Licensed in NY Disbarred

    An Obama Administration political appointee who is licensed to practice law in New York has been disbarred after being charged with failing to cooperate with a grievance committee investigation into an allegation that he neglected a potential client. According to court papers, Tushar Sheth, who was admitted to practice in 2002, became a policy advisor to the U.S. Department of Education in 2013. That year, Anjhula Bais, who met Sheth in 2011, filed a complaint against him alleging she had approached him about filing a lawsuit but that, after email exchanges and two phone conversations, he "disappeared without a trace."...

    Defense attorney Roy Kulcsar disbarred for using inmates to recruit new clients Attorney -- who defended terrorist Ramzi Yousef -- paid prisoners through commissary accounts Renowned defense attorney Roy Kulcsar didnt chase ambulances just inmates. And to make sure he caught them, he paid cash. Kulcsar funneled nearly $20,000 in illegal retainers to dozens of federal prisoners as compensation for steering fellow felons to his law practice, authorities said. The cash-for-clients deal operated between August 2004 and February 2010, with Kulcsar depositing funds into prison commissary accounts, a federal disciplinary committee reported last month. Kulcsar, who once represented 1993...

    How can a former constitutional law professor, an attorney general and an iconic organization get it so wrong on civil rights? When you look at it, it is hard to tell if the White House, the Department of Justice and the NAACP are merely a collective sign of the times or the reasons why the times are sadly changing. Over the course of the past week, all three iconic institutions have corrupted the legacy of civil rights activism in America, using their efforts to support legal initiatives that pervert the legacy of black civil rights leaders with self-serving and misguided...

    In a four-page written order (download here), the Florida Supreme Court today affirmed a referee's recommendation to permanently disbar controversial Miami attorney Jack Thompson. The action, which takes effect in 30 days, means that Thompson will no longer be licensed to practice law and may not apply for reinstatement. Ever. In citing a litany of offenses, the Court noted Thompson's extensive pattern of misconduct and cited a "complete lack of remorse." The Court also quoted extensively from the June, 2008 report of Judge Dava Tunis, who served as referee at Thompson's November, 2007 trial on charges brought by the Florida...

    Fox News interview with Bernie, who rightfully condemns the liberal media, the "Duke 88", feminists and Nifong for basically all conspiring to put the Duke lacrosse players behind bars. His point: this case went as far as it did because it was a perfect template -- rich white boys raping a poor black girl, from the South, no less. An open-and-closed case, if there ever was one, in the liberal mindset.

This letter is such a major shot across the bow of Disney, it's not even funny. It is FILLED with veiled threats, both legal and legislative, against Disney. US Senators don't make threats like this, especially the entire Democratic leadership en masse, unless they mean it. Disney is in serious trouble.

    WASHINGTON (AP) -- The impeachment of former President Clinton is in a gray area of history, too long ago to be a current event, too recent to be judged in perspective. Yet history is already judging Clinton in the place where millions of students get their information about him - textbooks. Seven years after he was impeached in a scandal of sex, perjury and bitter politics, Clinton has become a fixture in major high school texts. The impeachment is portrayed in the context of his two-term tenure, a milestone event, but not one that overshadows how Clinton handled the economy,...

    Israel's Yitzhak Rabin Center is charging $100,000 a pop for supporters who want to bask in the aura of former and possibly future first couple Bill and Hillary Clinton, who will be attending the center's opening next week. A fundraising letter obtained by the New York Post asks for donations to the center - saying seating will be determined "according to the size of the contribution." "Priority, of course, will be given to the highest contributions," the letter adds. The Clintons will seated at a 10-person table with Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice, who apparently won't be charged for the...

    AUSTIN (AP) - Democrats can't be afraid to talk about hot-button issues, including abortion, and should fight back against personal attacks from conservatives if they want to regain power in Washington, former President Bill Clinton said Saturday. "You can't say 'Please don't be mean to me. Please let me win sometimes.' Give me a break here," Clinton said. "If you don't want to fight for the future and you can't figure out how to beat these people then find something else to do." Clinton, whose 2004 memoir "My Life" was a best seller, drew roaring applause during his speech from...

    One of the unfortunate diseases of the body politic has been the increasing politicalization of the US Supreme Court. This was not caused by conservatives; however, perhaps it should be solved by a conservative President. One outstanding chance is now upon us. Most likely, President Bush will take the safe road and go through the political gauntlet and appoint a known conservative judge. What we really need is a break in the partisanship of the appointment process. Nominating former President Clinton would give everyone pause and begin a process where politicians (mostly, but not exclusively Democrats) can cease making efforts...
