  • Hillary Clinton Live and Unplugged

    Join Hillary Clinton in a conversation about What Happened, and what’s next for all of us. This is her most personal memoir yet. She has a lot to say in the book, and even more to discuss in her conversation with you and what’s on your mind. What you’ll see may not be what you'd expect from a public figure. Her story is raw, detailed, and surprisingly funny. It’s a story about resilience, how to get back up after a loss, and how we can all look ahead. It’s about Hillary's experience as a woman in politics -- she lets...

    Sorry I have to say this. But FR has become nearly unusable these days. You used to have a feeling that within 30 seconds to a minute, your page would be resolved and loaded. But no more. I don't know how many times lately, I have hit refresh or picked a new thread only to wait and wait and wait and then I give up and go to another site. The powers that be recommend limiting your window options to twenty. My reply is, if that's the problem, the just taking the option away and making it twenty should be...
  • Clinton's Tin Ear

    Hillary Clinton may be the most tone-deaf politician in modern history. Repeatedly over the course of a 41-year career as a political wife, candidate and appointee, she's said and done things that alienated voters. Who can forget her acerbic comments during the 1992 presidential race? "I suppose I could have stayed home and baked cookies and had teas," she told one reporter on the campaign trail in describing her decision to continue her legal career while first lady of Arkansas. And then there was her response in defending her husband from allegations of extramarital affairs: "You know, I'm not sitting...

    Obviously, Hillary Clinton prefers fantasy to the harsh political reality of her disastrous campaign It has been six months since the political world was rocked to its core with the upset election of Donald Trump as President. One person who has not gotten over Trump’s victory is his opponent, Hillary Clinton. Of course, in the days before the election, almost every pollster and commentator predicted a Clinton victory. She was overconfident and believed the media spin. Incredibly, she was outperformed by a political novice, who won 306 electoral votes in 31 states, an unexpected landslide.

    Safely out of the woods: Blame-game = Scapegoat game Hillary lost for one reason, and one reason alone: Most people in most states didn’t want her to be President. Democrats like to point to the meaningless popular vote, but the bottom line is Hillary didn’t take enough states to claim the brass ring. We’ve gone over the reasons why this happened dozens of times, so we won’t rehash them here. Just know that the short answer is this: people didn’t want her in office. That seems obvious to anyone who was paying attention in 2015 and 2016, but don’t try...
  • Donna Brazile Claims Emails She ‘Allegedly’ Sent CNN Questions to Clinton Team Don’t Tell ‘Complete

    Full title.........................Donna Brazile Claims Emails She ‘Allegedly’ Sent CNN Questions to Clinton Team Don’t Tell ‘Complete Story’.................Former Democratic National Committee interim chairwoman Donna Brazile maintains that the Wikileaks emails showing her relaying CNN questions ahead of debates to Hillary Clinton during the Democratic primary do not "tell a complete story." In an interview with Politico published Monday, Brazile, a former CNN contributor, acknowledged the emails "allegedly" show her passing the information to the Clinton campaign. But she says the emails do not explain the full story. "You know, I think there's always a lot of confusion when something is put...

    So it's time to ban them from social media, even if there's nothing fake about them. Since the outcome of the election was not what the left wanted, something must have gone wrong. This cannot happen. And whatever it might have been that caused insolent Americans to not vote as the left wished, this horrid thing must be found, must be isolated and must be killed. Of course, another approach would be, say, next time nominate a better candidate, offer better ideas and do a better job of persuading people to vote for you? Nah! Ban something! That’s the left’s...

    (CNN)It's the most deceptive sign in politics. Every four years, a presidential candidate gazes out over a vast crowd and convinces themselves the White House is there for the taking. In 2016, the general election candidate drawing the biggest and loudest crowds is Donald Trump. "We got to Oklahoma, we have 25,000 people. We had 21,000 people in Dallas, we had 35,000 people in Mobile, Alabama. We get these massive crowds," Trump said in Florida earlier this month. "Look, if she had 500 people I would be surprised," he added, poking fun at Hillary Clinton's more intimate events.During the primaries,...
  • Hillary Clinton: I'll visit Louisiana flood site when campaign won't 'disrupt' response

    (CNN)Hillary Clinton's campaign said the Democratic presidential candidate will travel to Louisiana to view the devastation caused by recent flooding "at a time when the presence of a political campaign will not disrupt the response" -- a shot at her rival Donald Trump. Trump, Pence tour flood damage in Baton Rouge Clinton's announcement comes after a high-profile visit last week by Trump and his running-mate Mike Pence, and follows the decision by the Obama administration to schedule a trip there this Tuesday. "This month's floods in Louisiana are a crisis that demand a national response," Clinton said in the statement....

    Dear Trump campaign, here's a freebie. You're welcome Sometimes, you come across a statement so utterly baffling, that you genuinely don’t know what to say about it. Today, such a nugget comes to us via Hillary Clinton. She doesn’t want to hear any excuses from people, because - as she claims - she’s “a no excuse” kind of person. Where to begin? Should I assemble a list of the excuses she’s offered for her failures, ethics violations, and criminal behavior over the course of her 30+ year career? Nope. That would, literally, take days.

    The CEO of one security consulting firm that handles all manner of security threats for the federal governments, private companies and heads of state concurs. “While Pagliano does, in fact, have some IT experience, it’s a far cry from anything near qualifying for a position of that level of responsibility,” Global Executive Management CEO Jamie Williamson told TheDC. “His resume is sparse for actual qualifying work experience and, it appears, that working for the Clinton campaign is probably the sole qualification.”

    The Australian government is tired of having unemployed people say they cannot take a job because it might interfere with their golf plans or dreams of becoming an actor. The government said it plans to tighten the rules on who qualifies for unemployment benefits to encourage a growing number of jobless - including some with creative excuses to stay off the job - to go to work. "Australia's income support system is there as a safety net for people who genuinely cannot find a job - not as an option for those who simply refuse to work," Australian Minister for...
  • Hillary’s lame excuses for her e-mail misconduct are crumbling

    The State Department just knocked a gaping hole in Hillary Clinton's happy e-mail fable. State, the Associated Press reports, won't release 22 of Clinton's messages to the public because they contain too much most-secret information. OK: Clinton's only promised that none of her e-mails were labeled "classified" - so she's technically not a blatant liar. But US intelligence agencies have determined these message contain enough sensitive information that even blacking out whole passages isn't enough to make them safe for public view. These e-mails are part of a trove of 7,000 pages - the last from Hillary's private server the...

    The State Department on Friday sought to delay its final release of emails from Hillary Clinton's personal server, blaming a massive snowstorm hitting Washington as well as an internal "oversight." In a court filing, the department asked a federal court to delay by a month the Jan. 29 deadline for it to release the last batch of roughly 55,000 pages of Clinton's emails believed to be work-related. The emails, thousands of which have been released on a monthly basis since last year, have become a constant headache for Clinton's front-runner Democratic presidential campaign. More than 1,300 of the emails from...

    The Obama administration's policy toward Syria and its more than four-year civil war is rapidly becoming a black mark on the president's legacy. And a scathing new report by Peter Baker of The New York Times details the mind-boggling decision by the White House to refuse to accept any responsibility. The blame for the failed US effort to train Syrian rebels to fight ISIS "should be pointed not at Mr. Obama but at those who pressed him to attempt training Syrian rebels in the first place," administration officials told Baker. There are only "four or five" US-trained rebels left fighting...

    President Obama now says he never believed in the $500-million program to train and equip the moderate Syrian opposition. The administration last week halted the failed program, which ended up “training” fewer than 100 Syrians, all but four or five of whom deserted or died after the Americans tried to turn them into anti-ISIS fighters. “Steve, this is why I’ve been skeptical from the get-go about the notion that we were going to effectively create this proxy army inside Syria,” Obama told CBS’ Steve Kroft during an interview for “60 Minutes.” …

    With a long line of debunked lies, shredded excuses, and abandoned spin attempts behind her, Hillary Clinton finally decided it was time to “apologize” for her email scandal. Of course, her idea of an “apology” basically amounts to: I’m sorry you Little People are too stupid to understand what I was up against, as a historic female Secretary of State. For good measure, Clinton threw in a stiff dose of the amazing Incompetence Defense into her MSNBC appearance – that bizarre, and disturbingly effective, tactic pioneered by the Obama Administration where officials claim to be innocent of wrongdoing by insisting...

    A California court has ordered the pro-life Center for Medical Progress, the group behind a series of videos exposing Planned Parenthood for haggling over the price of aborted baby parts, to desist from released any new footage exposing the practice. According to a report by Fox News, officials from a company that purchases baby parts from Planned Parenthood were granted a restraining order against CMP, restricting them from releasing new undercover video. At this point, CMP has released three videos showing a series of conversations about how much money Planned Parenthood receives for certain parts of a baby's aborted body....

"Well, it was 'just a black-on-black attack'.""It's just an internal racial matter'."She wasn't really (of another race)". Isn't that was Rev.
