    Speaking of treason, is it true that President Obama ordered his Intel and law enforcement agencies to stand down while Russia was actually in the act of meddling into our elections? And seeing that Hillary brought it up during the campaign, then she knew about it too. What did the president know and when did he know it? Why did they take no action at the time?
  • Democratic parties accused of funneling $84M into Clinton campaign

    Up to 40 state Democratic parties could be implicated in an alleged scheme to illegally funnel some $84 million to Hillary Clinton’s 2016 presidential campaign, according to a new report. A federal lawsuit says the Clinton team and the Democratic National Committee went around campaign finance laws by pouring money into state parties that then sent the funds back to the DNC to help Clinton, the Las Vegas Review-Journal reported. **SNIP** The FEC complaint alleges “an unprecedented, massive, nationwide multi-million dollar conspiracy” in which Dems and Clinton’s camp were “effectively laundering nearly all contributions” given to the Hillary Victory Fund.
  • Joe Manchin: Supporting Hillary Clinton in 2016 'was a mistake politically'

    Sen. Joe Manchin, D-W.Va., said Wednesday he regretted endorsing failed 2016 Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton, adding he would be "open" to throwing his weight behind President Trump's 2020 re-election bid. “I’m open to supporting the person who I think is best for my country and my state. If his policies are best, I’ll be right there,” Manchin told Politico Wednesday. “I’m with him sometimes more than other Republican senators are with him,” he continued later in the interview. “A lot of the policies he’s done [have] been good for the state.” Manchin recalled how Clinton asked him whether she...
  • PR boss Jennifer Palmieri: ‘We reduced Hillary to a female facsimile of a male president’

    If Jennifer Palmieri could turn back the clock, and make one change to Hillary Clinton’s campaign, what would it be? I can guess any number of answers when I put the question to the campaign’s communications director, but not the one she gives. “I would have spent more time and money,” she replies without hesitation, “in Texas, Arizona and Georgia.” Palmieri’s explanation makes perfect sense. She says they made the classic mistake of devoting their energy to the swing states of previous elections, such as Ohio, while overlooking historically safe Republican states now becoming winnable due to shifting demographics. It’s...

    A forthcoming memoir by Obama confidant Ben Rhodes includes the startling admission that the 44th president’s inner circle should have seen Hillary Clinton’s 2016 loss coming – because President Trump was essentially using the Obama playbook to discredit her. The New York Times published excerpts of the book, "The World As It Is," which describes outgoing President Barack Obama’s shock and disbelief at Trump’s election victory. But Rhodes also seems to acknowledge that Trump used some of the same lines of attack employed by Obama during the hard-fought 2008 presidential primary against Clinton – minus what Rhodes describes as the...

    Mitt Romney made no secret of his criticism of Donald Trump during the 2016 presidential campaign, but until now, he had not publicly revealed who he voted for: his wife, Ann. "I wrote in the name of a person who I admire deeply, who I think would be an excellent president," the Utah US Senate candidate told the Deseret News and KSL editorial boards Wednesday. Romney said he realized his vote "wasn't going to go anywhere, but nonetheless felt that I was putting in a very solid name."

    The attorney behind a political action committee backing President Donald Trump is accusing the Maine Democratic Party and its counterparts in 32 other states of engaging in an elaborate money laundering scheme to benefit Hillary Clinton during the 2016 election. Dan Backer, attorney for the Committee to Defend the President, in December filed a complaint with the Federal Elections Commission alleging $84 million in illegal donations. But he has since sued the FEC in federal court in Washington, D.C., in an attempt to compel the notoriously plodding election law enforcement agency to investigate a fundraising agreement that involved most Democratic...

    Norm Macdonald, in addition to being the best Weekend Update anchor ever, is also a keen student of human nature. Last year he summed up the results of the 2016 presidential election with this koan-like observation: "People hated Hillary Clinton so much that they voted for someone they hated more than Hillary Clinton in order to rub it in." I really think that sums up our current moment. A lot of people, myself included, underestimated just how tired of Hillary everyone was. After a quarter-century of listening to that awful old criminal's angry, scolding voice, America finally said enough was...

    The New York Times released an explosive article on Tuesday detailing how hundreds, if not thousands, of online “trolls” are paid to post pro-Kremlin propaganda across the Internet. One of their targeted sites, according to the report? TheBlaze.com. The trolls are organized by a group called the Internet Research Agency, and one former employee said she worked 12-hour days and had explicit instructions to create five political posts, 10 nonpolitical posts and 150 to 200 comments on the posts of those she worked with each shift. If you were to click on her accounts, she would appear like a normal...

    President Donald Trump said Friday that polls showing him trailing Hillary Clinton in the 2016 election were a form of voter suppression. Trump spoke at the National Rifle Association convention in Dallas, Texas, and he again recounted his upset victory over Clinton as a way to rev up the crowd. "You weren't sure that Trump was going to win, but you all went out there. You all went out there and you voted," Trump said. "I remember they came out with a lot of phony polls. You know what that's called? Suppression," he added. "They convince you that you're wasting...

    Hillary Clinton was back in the news last week thanks to a Sunday speech at the PEN America World Voices Festival, which sounded custom-designed to give Donald Trump a nosebleed. All told, her PEN performance was cool, crisp, and destined to make news -which it did. Which left me wondering: Isn’t there someone who can convince this accomplished, inspiring, barrier-breaking superwoman to stop whining about 2016? Someone? Anyone? Yes, what happened to Clinton was awful. She did not merely lose the presidency, she lost it to an opponent singularly unqualified to hold the office. But when it comes to the...

    How’s this for a headline that you, along with the rest of America, may have missed? “The Hillary Clinton campaign effectively laundered $84 million during the 2016 election.” At least that’s the allegation made in a lawsuit filed in a DC federal court last week by a group called the “Committee to Defend the President.” If you haven’t heard of this, it’s probably because last week’s priority lawsuit was the one filed by Democrats against the Trump campaign, WikiLeaks and Russia. But, to be fair, it’s hard to squeeze in potentially bombshell news about Hillary Clinton’s campaign corruption with so...

    Is this the most dangerous campaign in history, or a surreal comedy act, playing to a crowd laughing too hard to listen? The US writer spends a day at a presidential rally I spent five hours at the Donald Trump rally in Sacramento, California, on 1 June. I spoke to and overheard dozens of the rally’s attendees, not as a journalist but as one ticketholder to another – I was dressed in jeans, workboots and wore a Nascar hat – and found every last one of the attendees to be genial, polite and, with a few notable exceptions, their opinions...

  • Clinton warns against even symbolically recognizing Jerusalem as Israel's capital

    10/02/2011 6:39:15 PM PDT · by Dogbert41 · 40 replies
    Secretary of State Clinton, in a sharp departure from her stance when she was a senator, is warning that any American action, even symbolically, toward recognizing Jerusalem as the capital of Israel must be avoided for the reason that it would jeopardize the peace process. Her warnings were issued in a brief she has just filed with the Supreme Court — in which she is arguing that a law she voted for when she was Senator is unconstitutional because it could require the U.S. government to give to an American citizen born at Jerusalem papers showing the birthplace as Israel.

    A curious dualism emerges in New York Times reporter Amy Chozick’s book Chasing Hillary: Ten Years, Two Presidential Campaigns, and One Intact Glass Ceiling. As I noted yesterday, Chozick makes it clear that she was rooting for Clinton. But she also thinks Clinton hates her. Chozick shouldn’t take things so personally: Clinton hates everyone. You can’t relate to people you despise. Her inability to master the basics of being a politician inspired one of the great underreported witticisms of the 2016 campaign, when Donald Trump was asked about his comparatively loose debate preparations. “I don’t need to rehearse being human,”...

    Alon Altman, a senior software engineer at Google, pressured the company to sabotage President Trump’s Android phone, according to new evidence released via James Damore’s class-action lawsuit against the company. Calling on the tech giant to use the “full economic force [of] Google for good”, Altman also suggested deleting the gmail accounts of Trump, his administration, and his aides for “abuse.” Altman – who is still employed by the tech giant – also called on Google to blacklist “alt-right’ sites on the Google ad network (she falsely included Breitbart News in this category — an assertion refuted by a Harvard...
