  • Martin O'Malley sets sights on Hillary Clinton

    CNN ^ | 5/30/2015 | Dan Merica
    Martin O'Malley will launch his presidential campaign Saturday with an appeal to the party's progressive base that he hopes will upend the conventional wisdom that Hillary Clinton is destined to clinch the Democratic nomination. The former Maryland governor will unveil his campaign in Baltimore, the city where he was once mayor -- a role that is central to his political persona. But his Baltimore credentials could become more of a challenge than he initially thought after a riot erupted in the city in April. Perhaps O'Malley's biggest challenge is finding a way to dent the Clinton political machine while also...

    A charity run by Czech supermodel Petra Nemcova donated $500,000 to the Clinton Foundation in 2014 after Bill Clinton agreed to accept a lifetime achievement award from the organization. The New York Times reports [emphasis added]: To commemorate the 10th anniversary of the 2004 Indian Ocean tsunami, Petra Nemcova, a Czech model who survived the disaster by clinging to a palm tree, decided to pull out all the stops for the annual fund-raiser of her school-building charity, the Happy Hearts Fund. She booked Cipriani 42nd Street, which greeted guests with Bellini cocktails on silver trays. She flew in Sheryl Crow...
  • Clinton’s empty ‘old friend’ excuse on Sid Blumenthal

    New York Post ^ | 5-29-15 | Editorial
    To hear Hillary Clinton tell it, Sidney Blumenthal was no more than an old friend trying to help out by dropping her an occasional unsolicited e-mail with advice. And the only reason she listened, she said, was to keep from being “caught in the bubble” of hearing only from “a certain small group of people.” Now we know better. Turns out Blumenthal was no casual correspondent: He was repeatedly plying her with dubious “intelligence” on Libya — much of which turned out to be false, but which she nonetheless passed on to State Department underlings. In fact, we learned this...

    WASHINGTON (Sputnik) — US authorities should probe the Clinton Foundation instead of going after FIFA officials abroad, Wall Street financial analyst Charles Ortel told Sputnik. “The FIFA prosecution is outrageous. It reflects a complete double standard,” Ortel said on Thursday. “The first thing that the United States should do is to get its own financial house in order.” **SNIP** Ortel, who is investigating the financial records of the Clinton Foundation, argued the US government should investigate institutions based within the country with suspect financial records rather officials in Zurich-based FIFA.

Frederick Donnie Hunt, pastor of First Calvary Baptist Church, met Clinton at the Main Street Bakery in Columbia, South Carolina, on Wednesday, when she came in with campaign staff and reporters to purchase some baked goods, CNN reported. Hunt, who was quietly studying his Bible at the time, said that the presidential candidate approached him and asked what he was reading. When he told her that he was studying Corinthians 13, Clinton responded, ”Oh I know it well,” and commended him for exploring scripture. “You’re doing what...

    Last year, before Hillary Clinton's secret email system became publicly known, Congress passed a law to keep presidents from trying the same trick. If Clinton wins the White House, the law could well be put to the test. The statute is the Presidential and Federal Records Act Amendments of 2014. It recognizes that government officials sometimes (or in Clinton's case, all the time) want to use private email accounts — in the words of the law, "non-official electronic messaging accounts" — to conduct government business. Such communications are still federal records, Congress declared, and must be preserved in accordance with...

    Hillary Clinton has sought to avoid public scrutiny of her emails since before she was sworn in as secretary of state. When she did turn over some of her emails to the State Department, it was Clinton and her lawyers who decided which ones they would make available and which they would withhold. While it might be useful for Clinton defenders to pretend otherwise, there was no expectation that Clinton would voluntarily share incriminating emails, especially now, in the first weeks of her presidential campaign. .... Sidney Blumenthal is at the heart of those new questions. A noted conspiracy monger...

    Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) sought to distance himself Thursday from an essay he wrote in the 1970s that discusses rape fantasies. Michael Briggs, a spokesman for the 2016 White House contender’s campaign, called the essay a "dumb attempt at dark satire in an alternative publication,” according to CNN. Briggs added that the writing "in no way reflects his views or record on women,” saying it “was intended to attack gender stereotypes of the '70s.” The essay, published by the Vermont Freeman in 1972, discussed violent sexual fantasies. In it, Sanders wrote that a man’s “typical fantasy” is “a woman tied...

The report looked at how well candidates' campaigns fared by comparing the popularity of candidates' names and websites, as well as what words are shared in conjunction with candidates' names. Of all declared 2016 presidential hopefuls' websites, Hillary Clinton's campaign website received the most shares, with 4.8 million social media and news mentions. And it wasn't just the number of times her campaign was mentioned that was significant: Clinton's...

    Recently released emails detail then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton's interest in arming Libyan opposition groups using private security contractors before the fall of Muammar Qaddafi in 2011 – though at the time, the opposition was not formally recognized by the U.S. or United Nations, which prohibited arming without following strict guidelines and oversight. The issue remains so sensitive that the emails recently released by the State Department redacted a key line on the matter. But the unredacted version of the same email, released to the congressional Benghazi Select Committee and first posted by The New York Times last Thursday, showed...

Think about it, his hacking of Sidney Blumenthal's email revealed that Hillary was using a private server. On top of that we found out via those hacked emails that Sid Vicious (who was paid $10,000 per month by the Clinton Foundation) was feeding Hillary some really bad information about Libya. As a result, Hillary worked to overthrow Qaaddafi who at the time posed NO threat to us. As a result we now have a Libya in chaos with terrorists...

    Left-wing writer Max Blumenthal helped inspire Hillary Clinton’s debunked talking point that an obscure YouTube movie called “Innocence of Muslims” was responsible for the deadly terrorist attack on the U.S. consulate in Benghazi, Libya in 2012. The son of Clinton’s longtime political adviser and informal Libya consultant, Max Blumenthal pushed his conspiratorial theories onto the secretary of state in the hours after Ambassador Chris Stevens and three others were killed. The Daily Caller reported in December that Hillary Clinton received the “Youtube video” talking points before the rest of the Obama administration.

    But still, interesting tidbits have been cropping up from the ones we’ve seen thus far. That’s probably why Clinton would rather rip the band aid off early, get them all out in the press and then simply move on. By the time the first votes are cast, her team would be able to shrug off any lingering questions by calling them old news. Unfortunately, the State Department’s hands are tied and they’re unable to play along with the plan. In possibly the worst possible scenario for the Clinton campaign, State is now proposing to keep releasing them in batches every...

Because the company, WJC, LLC, has no financial assets, Hillary Clinton's campaign was not obligated to report its existence in her recent financial disclosure report, officials with Bill Clinton's private office and the Clinton campaign said. Former president Bill Clinton uses a shell company called WJC, LLC to move money from his clients to his own...

    Hillary Clinton supporters can now don a “pantsuit tee” inspired by one of her signature looks. The “everyday pantsuit tee” went on sale Tuesday in the 2016 Democratic candidate’s just-launched online campaign store. The $30 bright red shirt brings “a whole new meaning to casual Friday,” according to the product description. Fine print on the page points out: “Pantsuit bottoms not included.”
  • Surprise: Most Clinton Foundation donors got larger weapons deals from Hillary’s State Department

    Of 20 nations that donated to the Foundation, 17 had more robust weapons transactions in the three fiscal years that State was led by Hillary than in the last three years of the previous administration. How do you convince a president who got elected in 2008 on an anti-war platform repudiating warmongering cowboy George W. Bush to ramp up arms deals to unsavory regimes in the Middle East? Slipping a fat envelope into the Clinton slush fund’s collection box couldn’t hurt. And evidently didn’t.Personally, I’m pretty excited to have every foreign-policy transaction the United States engages in through 2020,...

  • So the GOP Must Embrace Evil to Survive. Really?

    A black liberal columnist made the point in his article that the future of the GOP rests on it getting rid of its conservatives. Then, the GOP can modernize, attract more young voters of color by embracing open borders, amnesty, abortion, and all the other filth coming out of the Democratic Party. Embracing this strategy is tantamount to embracing evil.Many consultants and sadly, GOP politicians concur with the columnist's strategy. In essence, we are being told that the only way the GOP can win future elections is to embrace an anti-God and anti-righteousness agenda. I cannot and will not embrace...

    We live in an age of narratives, not news. The narrative in the mainstream media is that Hillary Clinton is “inevitable” as the Democratic nominee, with supporting polling data from the New York Times (that oversamples Democrats and under-samples Republicans) manufactured to support the narrative. But the real news, what people need to know, is that Hillary looks like a disaster-in-the-making, with very poor campaign skills and an indefensible record overseeing foreign policy disasters that have exploded in the face of Obama. But some in the mainstream media are beginning to shed their reluctance to say that the empress has...

    Hillary Clinton is heading to the Sunshine State this week to spend time with one of Florida’s most influential Democratic donors, trial lawyer John Morgan. Morgan is not just praising Clinton’s candidacy, but actively bashing her potential Republican rivals. In an interview with The Daily Beast, Morgan took shots at Wisconsin Governor and prospective 2016 candidate, Scott Walker: “Walker would be the first president with a GED.”The Democratic donor attempted to insult Walker for not obtaining a college degree, which he opted out of in order to get started with his career. Morgan continued, calling Walker cruel names in an...

    Bill and Hillary Clinton might have left the White House dead broke, but they certainly recovered quickly. The pair has generated tens of millions of dollars of income for themselves and their foundation since 2000, with much of it coming from paid speeches. Indeed, financial disclosure reports recently filed by the Clintons bump the total that they have ginned up in speaking fees to at least $130 million, with the price of a single speech frequently topping $300,000. Those staggering figures have shined a bright light on the very big, very opaque market for corporate keynotes, addresses to universities, and...

    The rumors have dogged her for years. Hillary Clinton has encountered several roadblocks in the days since announcing her presidential candidacy, many of which stemmed from accusations that she inappropriately used a personal email address to conduct official business during her stint as the head of the U.S. State Department. With reports of numerous emails permanently deleted from her server, speculation continues to swirl within the political realm regarding what she hoped to keep secret. An exclusive report by the National Enquirer this week attempted to address that issue, citing an anonymous source close to Clinton who claims she is...

    Bill and Hillary Clinton appeared together at a Memorial Day parade in their adoptive hometown on Monday, their first joint appearance since the unveiling of her 2016 Democratic presidential campaign more than six weeks ago. The Clintons snapped photos with attendees and marched behind veterans at the parade in Chappaqua, N.Y., but avoided talk about the former secretary of State's White House bid. "This is a way of demonstrating that they are not forgotten, and we are going to continue to do everything that we can to make sure that we honor their sacrifice and commitment," Hillary Clinton told a...

    Former FBI agent Steve King of Milton has been a member of the Republican National Committee since 2007. In his speech to the state Republican Party convention, the no-nonsense King bluntly laid out what went wrong in 2012. Then, GOP presidential hopefuls ran a gauntlet of more than 20 debates, and state-by-state primaries that led to the nomination of presidential candidate Mitt Romney. “Wrong venues,” King fumed. “Wrong hosts. Wrong moderators.” There will be no repeat next year of what amounted to that waterboarding of presidential candidates, King vowed. “We are taking back control of our primary process.” As a...

    It's time to say out loud what we all already know. It's not Hillary. It just isn't. After the inspired and historic leadership of President Obama, we don't want his runner up from 2008. After the genuine and authentic article, we don't want the 3D printed likeness, no matter how realistic it may appear.

Silda, along with Wall Street queen Alexandra Lebenthal, Heidi Miller, tech entrepreneur Geraldine Laybourne and Maroon Capital’s Ann Davlin, is hosting the “just for women” event for Hillary on June 1.
