    Republican members of the House Committee on Science, Space and Technology wrote to Environmental Protection Agency administrator Gina McCarthy and called her testimony at a hearing in July “false and misleading.” On July 9, McCarthy testified to the House Committee on the transparency of the EPA’s regulatory agenda. Members of the committee asked McCarthy about the “secret science” that goes in to justifying EPA regulations because they want to ensure the data is available to the American people.
  • British Govt tried to kill BBC reporter Gilligan: ex-BBC official Greg Dyke

    10/17/2004 4:52:49 PM PDT · by DeaconBenjamin · 34 replies · 1,044+ views
    Greg Dyke, former director general of the BBC, has claimed that the British Government "tried to kill" Andrew Gilligan. Reporter Gilligan broke the story that British intelligence had "sexed up" a dossier on Iraq that sought to justify Britain's support for US-led invasion of the country. "The Government tried to kill him," claimed Dyke about Gilligan, who was forced out of his job at the BBC in January in the wake of the Hutton report that inquired into the death of scientist David Kelly. Kelly was the main source for Gilligan. Dyke was speaking at the Cheltenham Festival of Literature...

But it is an email, so I'll say my piece as politely as I can: This election is ours to win, if we do the work. As I see it, politicians make laws that put women's bodies and our paychecks into their hands. But we're not just a voting group to be courted by ad execs. Women, and the men who stand with us, are the majority. And when we show up and vote, women win....

    Hillary Clinton sounded like a woman on a mission after her long drive into the heartland: “There’s something wrong,” she told Iowans on Tuesday, when “hedge fund managers pay lower taxes than nurses or the truckers I saw on I-80 when I was driving here over the last two days.” But back in Manhattan, the hedge fund managers who’ve long been part of her political and fundraising networks aren’t sweating the putdown and aren’t worrying about their take-home pay just yet.

    Speaking in Iowa Wednesday, former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton said that all her grandparents had immigrated to the United States, a story that conflicts with public census and other records related to her maternal and paternal grandparents. The story of her grandmother specifically immigrating is one Clinton has told before. Clinton’s sole foreign-born grandparent, Hugh Rodham Sr., immigrated as a child. “Her grandparents always spoke about the immigrant experience and, as a result she has always thought of them as immigrants,” a Clinton spokesman told BuzzFeed News. “As has been correctly pointed out, while her grandfather was an immigrant,...

    I know what you’re thinking. Didn’t she long ago hop aboard the gay-marriage bandwagon, knowing that it’s now an absolute litmus test for Democrats? Granted, she only formally expressed her support for SSM in 2013, but surely that support encompassed a Supreme Court ruling on equal protection legalizing gay marriage nationwide. The left might tolerate her being a Wall Street crony and a hawk and about 8,000 other things they profess to loathe, but they won’t tolerate her thwarting their “Selma envy” by hedging on gay marriage. They let Obama slide on that in 2008 because it was still...

    Last Sunday, Hillary Clinton announced her candidacy for the presidency of the United States. She also revealed her new campaign logo. The logo is unique to say the least and was met with a great deal of mockery and derision from all corners of the World Wide Web. Many Americans still haven't had a chance to see the logo yet, so I went down to the National Mall and asked Americans what the logo reminded them of and whether they thought it would make a good symbol for Hillary's fledgling campaign.

This will explain why our so-called "objective" media are already treating Hillary as the Third Coming (Obama was No. 2) while Cruz merits hide-your-children alarms. Just the adjectives give it away. Hillary's Twitter launch on April 12 was received with words like "sleek," "savvy," "trending," "electrifying," and "approachable" She was packaged by the press exactly as she wanted it: a humble "champion of everyday Americans." Compare that to the Ted Cruz launch on March 23. These words framed the introduction: "scary," "dangerous," "slimy," "firebrand,"...

Clinton is traveling with longtime aide Huma Abedin and spokesperson Nick Merrill. Secret service is with them and she is not likely behind the wheel herself. The trip will take her along I-80 through the swing states of Pennsylvania and Ohio before she arrives in Iowa. Americans love road trips.

"Everyday American" is a short phrase that encapsulates the grand strategy of her campaign, a subtle way of throwing shade on the non-everyday Americans — the people that Elizabeth Warren decries, the 1 percent, the Wall Street bankers, and, generally, opponents of progress. Whether Clinton's campaign will be revolutionary or regular is a question that'll take at least a year or more to answer.

    In the video announcing her presidential candidacy, Hillary Clinton says the economic deck "is still stacked in favor of those at the top." She should know because she has gobbled up a lot of cash for speaking fees and the Clinton Foundation. The video also includes the word "reinventing," a kind of self-reset button (it didn't work with the Russians, but she apparently thinks it will work for her). After 67 years on this earth, the last 23 of which have been in the political spotlight, Hillary thinks the public may not know who she is. In fact, we do...

I'm neither smug nor complacent about the likelihood of defeating her, but I am incautiously optimistic. I hope I'm not wrong; the country can't take four more years of the same disastrous policies. Frankly, I'm a bit surprised that Hillary appears to be the anointed candidate with virtually no one in the party surfacing to challenge her for the nomination. If she was ever a good candidate, her time has clearly passed, because the mythical image that she has invested so...

Mrs. Clinton's pantsuit kick isn't anything new. Her passion for pantsuits began in the early '90s, and since she's treated the American political scene to a stylish parade of rainbow-hued suits. From her time as a Senator to her 2008 presidential campaign bid, Mrs. Clinton has...

    It's strange to remember how bitterly divisive the 2008 Democratic presidential primary battle was. Hillary Clinton's and Barack Obama's platforms and ideological positioning were awfully similar. And on the chief difference between them—Obama's less hawkish foreign policy—the victor wiped away that distinction by appointing Clinton as secretary of state. Now Clinton has announced her candidacy and is poised to coast through the 2016 Democratic primaries as her party's prohibitive favorite. Would a Clinton presidency be essentially a third Obama term? On climate change and energy, it seems the answer is yes. For better and for worse, Clinton's record and stances...

    Now that Hillary Clinton has officially announced her run for president, experts and pundits will be studying more closely why Americans will or will not vote for her. Based on her campaign launch, Clinton isn't interested in touting her time as Secretary of State to get herself in the White House. Instead, her campaign will be all about "breaking glass ceilings" and asking for votes in order to make history as the first female president. The goal is to accuse all critics of her policies and 35 year long record in Washington of sexism and misogyny. As Cortney reported earlier,...

The reason for this, Mitchell said, is because there were “a lot of missteps there” in the Obama administration while she was Secretary of State.Mitchell cited the rise of ISIS, the toppling of Middle Eastern leaders not working out, several failed states, and the controversy...

Press secretary Josh Earnest said that Obama and Clinton have “become friends” during Clinton's years serving as secretary of State but “there are other people who are friends of of the president” who are considering their own campaigns. Vice President Biden is among the Democrats considering a run for the White House. Obama on Saturday said Clinton would be “an excellent president” and called her his friend. Earnest called Clinton an “effective” advocate for the president dating...

    There’s already plenty of bad punditry regarding the chances of Hillary Clinton — who officially announced her candidacy on Sunday — to become the 45th president. You can find Democrats boasting about their “blue wall” in the Electoral College and how hard this will make it for any Republican to win. Or Republicans warning that the Democratic Party rarely wins three elections in a row. Most of this analysis is flimsy. So is the commentary about the ups-and-downs in early swing state polls. And when you see some pundit declaring a minor misstep to be a “game changer,” find someone...

    Let’s nail down our talking points about Hillary Clinton. Make your points brief, accurate, recognizable to low info voters, and politically savage. For example: 1) Murdered Ambassador in Benghazi 2) Wiped server clean 3) “Success” is Yemen 4) Took Millions from Foreign Governments 5) No Legislative success 6) No Foreign Policy success 7) Lost Iraq to ISIS Please add. When we're done, I'll re-compile for general use. We need the ~10 point perfected take-down of Hillary. Then we pound the same points for 1.5 years. Everywhere, every time. Drive Hillary's negatives so high, people want to puke.

    Hillary Clinton declared that she is running for President yesterday. Her campaign slogan: "Hillary for America!" In the weeks leading up to the announcement, however, Democrats have claimed that referring to Ms. Clinton as just "Hillary" is sexist. The following Democrats on Twitter, for example, display that sentiment: Yet the former First Lady's phrase is "Hillary for America!" This begs the obvious question: is Clinton's own campaign sexist against her? By the standards created by the Left, the answer is an obvious "yes."

    Hillary Rodham Clinton entered the presidential race Sunday to a stunning cold shoulder from Mayor de Blasio and few signs of genuine enthusiasm from other top New York Democrats, who want to see her espouse a far more liberal agenda.

    Hillary Clinton's campaign rollout on social media set Twitter abuzz as she likely hoped, but part of the discussion quickly veered away from the candidate herself to her new logo, and it got a hearty "thumbs down." The blocky blue "H" with a horizontal red arrow running through it looked like a road sign pointing to a hospital, some said; it looked too similar to the logo for FedEx, others complained; it could easily be compared with a World War II-era Hungarian fascist party logo, a journalist for the Wall Street website Business Insider pointed out. Worse yet for the...
