  • When Hillary gets an unexpected spanking

    The Washington Times ^ | 5/18/2015 | Wesley Pruden
    The Democrats can run, to paraphrase Muhammad Ali’s rebuke of a timid opponent, but they can’t hide. Hillary Clinton is turning her campaign into a game of hide-and-seek, and the party is terrified. Some leading Democrats are beginning to say out loud what they have said privately for weeks. What she thought would be a cake walk to Philadelphia and the 2016 nomination is beginning to look like a cornbread walk, and cornbread has no icing. She took a spanking on the Sunday talk shows, with her party critics focusing on her reluctance to speak up on several key issues,...

    The Clinton Foundation has come under scrutiny over the past few months with the scandal concerning Hillary Clinton's personal email server being used for State Department business. This week, Minnesota Representative Michele Bachmann said the Clinton Foundation was nothing more than an international money laundering ring. In speaking with Newsmax TV, Bachmann said, "This is the most transparent family in the United States, right? The woman who won't hand over her server, who wasn't supposed to do her government work on that server in the first place, who violated department rules… who, in all likelihood, probably violated US federal rules,...

    <p>More than five years ago, a Clinton confidant matter-of-factly described for me Hillary’s Plan. She would ­resign as secretary of state after President Obama’s first term, write a book and then run for president again.</p> <p>But time has marched on and the world has changed, making The Plan, and her, look stuck in the past. What the great Murray Kempton wrote in 1965 of John Lindsay’s first mayoral run — “He is fresh and everyone else is tired” — is not something anybody says of Hillary these days.</p>

    American Spectator ^ | 3/4/2015 | George Neumayr
    The portrait of Bill Clinton that hangs at the National Portrait Gallery in Washington contains a curious shadow. The meaning of that shadow was explained to the press this week by the artist of the portrait, Nelson Shanks. He told reporters that he used a blue dress, a reference to Clinton’s affair with Monica Lewinsky, as the object of the shadow. No president is a hero to his valet or portraitist, apparently. “The reality is [Clinton's] probably the most famous liar of all time. He and his administration did some very good things, of course, but I could never get...

    Secretary of State Hillary Clinton has finally responded to the request by five House Republicans for an investigation into the Islamist links to Clinton’s long-time aide Huma Abedin. Clinton tried to take the moral high ground, saying there is “no place in our politics” for such “assaults” and continuing: “Leaders have to be active in stepping in and sending messages about protecting the diversity within their countries. We did see some of that in our own country. We saw Republicans stepping up and standing up against the kind of assaults that really have no place in our politics.” State Department...

    380th Air Expeditionary Wing Public Affairs | 5/6/2010 | Master Sgt. Scott X
    SOUTHWEST ASIA -- In the first three months of 2010, Airmen supporting the U-2 Dragon Lady deployed operations with the 99th Expeditionary Reconnaissance Squadron of the 380th Air Expeditionary Wing flew nearly 200 combat sorties in support of operations in the U.S. Central Command area of responsibility. When averaged out in flight time, that means a U-2 is flying in the AOR 24 hours a day, seven days a week. In those 200 missions, U-2 Airmen supported more than 70 "troops in contact" events where deployed ground forces were supported by the U-2's intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance capabilities, said Mr....

    April 19, 2001. Anniversary of the filing of Gerald Amirault's petition for commutation. The Parole Board -- required by law to make a recommendation within six months -- has still done nothing. July 6, 2001. The Parole Board votes 5-0, recommending that the Governor commute Gerald Amirault's sentence to time served. August 2, 2001. Martha Coakley and the Middlesex DA's office orchestrate a hysteria-filled press conference by the alleged "victims" of the Amirault family. Ironically, the true abusers of these people are in fact Coakley herself and her colleagues -- Harshbarger, Reilly, Bernstein, Hardoon, etc. Dorothy Rabinowitz writes an excellent...

    New York Times ^ | December 22, 2008 | Michael Falcone
    First, it was the disclosure of the contributors to her husband’s charitable organizations, then a rollback in salary for her new job because of an obscure clause in the Constitution, and now as Hillary Rodham Clinton prepares to make the transition from senator to secretary of state, she has written off a $13.1 million loan of her own money to her presidential campaign. According to fillings with the Federal Election Commission, Mrs. Clinton forgave a total of $13,175,000 in personal funds that she lent to her campaign during the Democratic primary, plus interest. Even so, Mrs. Clinton still owes millions...
  • Dick Morris: Hillary Vows to Defend U.A.E., Kuwait, From [Nuclear] Iran

    In last week's Philadelphia debate, Hillary Clinton said she would commit the United States to a retaliatory attack against Iran, presumably with nuclear weapons, if it dropped the bomb on Saudi Arabia, the United Arab Emirates, or Kuwait. Asked if "it should be U.S. policy now to treat an Iranian attack on Israel as if it were an attack against the United States," Clinton astonishingly responded that she'd use American nukes not just to defend Israel, our traditional strategic ally, but also other neighboring states such as the U.A.E., Saudi Arabia, and Kuwait from an Iranian nuclear attack. Barack Obama's...

    At the most recent Democratic debate, moderator Wolf Blitzer referred to "a dream ticket for the White House" - either Hillary Clinton for President and Barack Obama for veep or the other way around. Both candidates demurred, giving me the opportunity to describe my own dream ticket: Obama for President; Clinton for chief of staff. That's the long and the short of it. Just about everything Clinton says about herself - her experience, her indomitability, her presumed ability to work long hours - says to me that she would make a swell chief of staff. Beyond that, she either lacks...

    During Thursday night's Republican debate, presidential candidate Mitt Romney said something that angered me a bit... And one more thing. What -- what an audacious and arrogant thing for the Democrats to say, as Hillary Clinton did, that they are responsible for the progress that the surge has seen, by virtue of their trying to pull out so quickly. Look, the success over there is due to the -- the blood and the courage of our servicemen and women, and to General Petraeus and to President Bush, not to General Hillary Clinton. No, this time I'm not mad AT Mitt.

    Listening to liberal politicians attempt to speak about Biblical Christianity is something akin to quizzing porn stars about the finer points of acting. ...And if you're last name is Clinton you may qualify for both - but I digress. They know it's not their best subject. They know they have no clue about it's authenticity, but the leading Democratic candidates continue to believe that they can somehow trick those who do into thinking they are one of us. We've already been panderbyted by both John Edwards and Barack Obama about the Gospel according to liberalism but this week it was...

    Democratic front-runners Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama vowed Sunday to crusade for immigration reform if elected president, though they didn't promise everything asked of them at the nation's largest gathering of Hispanic community leaders.Clinton did not demand an end to federal raids on undocumented immigrants. Obama would not guarantee a visit to the immigrant-heavy agricultural area of California's Central Valley in between his fundraising trips to Los Angeles. But their mere presence at the Miami Beach Convention Center -- along with their agreement with much of the National Council of La Raza agenda on immigration, healthcare and education -- gratified...
  • 14 Years Later, Mystery Still Remains in the Death of Vince Foster

    14 yers ago today, on July 20, 1993, the body of Vincent Walker Foster, Jr. was found in a Virginia park, next to a civil war cannon, with an unidentified revolver lodged in the right hand. Vincent Foster died of a small-caliber gunshot wound to his head. Vince Foster was not only deputy White House counsel but also the personal attorney to Bill and Hillary Clinton. On the night of Foster’s death, top Clinton aides made a frantic effort to enter and remove documents from his West Wing office. In the days that followed, federal investigators were stymied in their...

    Since 1993, when she tried to become the tzarina of government-sponsored health care, I have suspected that Hillary Clinton wanted to become the President of the United States. Since the mid-1990s — when one of her best friends, Judith Hope, moved from Little Rock to New York, and then “suddenly” became the chairman of the NY Democratic Party — I was confident that the fix was in. Since 1999, when she bilked the taxpayers in a phony “listening tour” scam to launch her campaign, there was no doubt in my mind that Mrs. Clinton was going to use a run...

    Hillary Clinton Off Case, Still May Testify A California judge has signaled that 2008 presidential hopeful Hillary Clinton will not be able to avoid being deposed for a civil lawsuit against her husband and others involved in a Hollywood fundraiser for her 2000 Senate campaign, according to a lawyer involved in the case. Colette Wilson, who represents one-time Clinton fundraiser Peter Paul, tells the New York Sun that Los Angeles Superior Court Judge Aurelio Munoz indicated last week that any attempt to prevent Mrs. Clinton from giving sworn testimony in the case would be "dead on arrival." Mr. Paul footed...

    Clinton's Popularity Up in State, Even Among Republicans By RAYMOND HERNANDEZ Published: February 22, 2005 Remember Hillary Rodham Clinton and the conventional wisdom about how polarizing a figure she is? Well, think again. Recent polls have shown that Mrs. Clinton, the junior senator from New York, may have turned a corner politically, sharply reducing the number of voters in the state who harbor negative views of her. Pollsters say the change is remarkable for a woman who has long been shadowed by a seemingly implacable group of voters - commonly referred to as Hillary haters - who dislike her, no...

    Maverick Republican Sen. John McCain said Sunday that his New York colleague, Sen. Hillary Clinton, would do well if she becomes president of the United States. "I am sure that Sen. Clinton would make a good president," McCain told NBC's "Meet the Press," as both he and Clinton were being interviewed from Baghdad. While noting that as a Republican, he'll be supporting the GOP nominee in 2008, McCain reiterated, "I have no doubt that Sen. Clinton would make a good president." Asked whether she thought McCain would make a good president, Sen. Clinton was somewhat less effusive, responding tersely, "Absolutely"...
