  • Schweizer: I’m Skeptical of Wealth Accumulation of All Elected Officials

    Breitbart ^ | 3 May 2015 | Pam Key
    Sunday on Fox News Channel’s “MediaBuzz,” “Clinton Cash” author Peter Schweizer said he is motivated by making sure the “wealth accumulation by elected officials” is legitimate. When asked if he felt the mainstream media was giving him a harder time because he is going after the Clintons? Schweizer said, “I think there’s a certain element of that, yes. I think part of it is because there have been a lot of scandal books, so-called scandal books in the past. But I also think there’s this sense that they’re looking for political motivation in what I’m doing. And, you know, I...

    Schweizer’s book painstakingly follows the money to such characters as Canadian mining tycoon Frank Giustra, a $31.3M donor to the Clinton Foundation, who chauffeured Bill on his private jet. The details of the sordid Clinton operation vary, but the M.O. is fairly consistent: One: Dodgy rich businessman, often a foreigner with a mega-deal in some corrupt country, possibly run by a dictator, writes a check that buys him the status of friend of Bill Clinton (FOB). The check is payable to the Clinton Foundation, or to Bill himself, as an honorarium for a meaningless idealistic speech that is essentially Bill...

    Americans appear to be suspicious of Hillary Rodham Clinton’s honesty, and even many Democrats are only lukewarm about her presidential candidacy, according to a new Associated Press-GfK poll. Is she strong and decisive? Yes, say a majority of people. But inspiring and likable? Only a minority think so. Clinton’s struggles to explain her email practices while in government, along with questions about the Clinton Foundation and Republican criticism of her openness, wealth and trustworthiness seem to have struck a nerve in the public’s perception of the dominant Democratic figure in the 2016 campaign. In the survey, 61 percent said “honest”...

    It just is unseemly. It is not just the Clintons, but the Clintons are the most visible purveyors of the activities. No one wants our ex-presidents or vice-presidents living in poverty, but we provide a nice pension and some really capable staff. Trading on your elected position after being in national office just seems so – tawdry. Tawdry is much a term out of fashion, but befitting the situation. It is defined as “showy but cheap and of poor quality.” Unseemly, which is defined as “not proper or inappropriate” can also be used here. But neither term seems to fit...

    "It's time to end the era of mass incarceration," Hillary Clinton proclaimed in a scheduled criminal-justice speech Wednesday that gave her the opportunity to address sentencing reform in the context of the troubles in Baltimore. It was a lukewarm effort in keeping with Hillaryland rules. Say as little as possible. Offend no interest group. Let handlers alert the media that the candidate is engaging in a big policy shift that is bound to attract young voters, even if the big policy shift leaves out specific positions on, say, marijuana legalization or the death penalty.

    Her campaign barely three weeks old, Hillary Clinton already has been attacked by Republicans on everything from donations to her family’s charitable foundation, to her tenure as secretary of state and her ties to Wall Street. But her rivals, and the political action committees that support them, are treading more carefully on one incendiary subject: her age . If elected in November 2016, Clinton would be, at 69, the second-oldest person to take the presidential oath for the first time, behind only Ronald Reagan, who turned 70 weeks after being sworn into office in 1981. Questions of health and fitness...

She did receive a celebrity endorsement, but, alas, it came from pornographer Larry Flynt, and as Bloomberg’s John Heilemann observes, it “beggars belief that she and her team will be issuing any press releases touting the latest bold-faced name to clamber aboard her bandwagon.” A new Associated Press-GfK poll finds Americans suspicious of Clinton’s honesty, and even many Democrats are only lukewarm about her presidential candidacy.

By now, you’ve likely heard troubling accounts about the Clintons’ secret foreign donors, their relentless profiteering, and support for troubling business deals that affect our national security. There’s a lot to digest, but why should Americans care about the Clintons’ finances and their foundation’s donor? The answer: it’s a matter of trust. Can Americans really trust Hillary Clinton? It’s a question all Americans will have to answer for themselves. (We already know from recent polls that a majority of Americans do not believe she...

All but 13 Republicans voted for the resolution of disapproval, which passed on a largely party-line, 228-192 vote, while just three Democrats voted in favor of it. The measure got a high-level Democratic opponent on Thursday with Hillary Clinton's campaign weighing in, calling it a move to "overrule the Democratic process" in a statement to CNN.

These are real,” Chafee said.

Bernie Sanders (I-VT) is so unrepresentative of mainstream American political thought that he cannot pose a serious threat to Hillary Clinton. ItÂ’s true that the former secretary of state remains the prohibitive favorite to win her partyÂ’s nomination in 2016, and there isnÂ’t much evidence beyond the anecdotal that suggests Democrats are uncomfortable anointing her Barack ObamaÂ’s chosen successor. That dynamic might change, however, if Sanders runs against Clinton in a manner...

In a statement released via a spokeswoman earlier this month, Clinton now said she hopes it would become a "constitutional right." “Hillary Clinton supports marriage equality and hopes the Supreme Court will come down on the side of same-sex couples being guaranteed that constitutional right,” Hillary for America spokeswoman Adrienne Elrod said in a statement to ABC News.

    Facing increased scrutiny following the launch of Hillary Clinton's presidential campaign, the Clinton Foundation has acknowledged mistakes on its tax returns in recent years. In a blog post on Sunday, Clinton Foundation acting CEO Maura Pally said that the charity will likely refile forms for some years after completing an external review. "Yes, we made mistakes, as many organizations of our size do, but we are acting quickly to remedy them, and have taken steps to ensure they don't happen in the future," Pally wrote. She added, "We are committed to operating the Foundation responsibly and effectively to continue the...

    International Business Times ^ | 04/28/2015 | By Andrew Perez, David Sirota , Matthew Cunningham-Cook
    Former President Bill Clinton accepted more than $2.5 million in speaking fees from 13 major corporations and trade associations that lobbied the U.S. State Department while Hillary Clinton was secretary of state, an International Business Times investigation has found. The fees were paid directly to the former president, and not directed to his philanthropic foundation. Many of the companies that paid Bill Clinton for these speeches -- a roster of global giants that includes Microsoft, Oracle and Dell -- engaged him within the same three-month period in which they were also lobbying the State Department in pursuit of their policy...

    Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Massachusetts) reportedly plans to use her influence in the Senate to make Hillary Clinton become her type of presidential candidate. In a New Yorker profile published on Monday, an unnamed Warren adviser told Ryan Lizza that the senator "can get Hillary to do whatever the hell she wants." Accordingly, the source said, there's no reason for Warren to challenge Clinton's bid for the White House. "I think she's in a beautiful position right now because she can get Hillary to do whatever the hell she wants," the adviser said. "Now the question is, will Hillary stick to...

    Hillary Clinton's presidential campaign will be in serious jeopardy if she's challenged by a fellow Democrat, says Bill Kristol, founder and editor of The Weekly Standard and an ABC News contributor. "She's in real trouble the moment a Democratic candidate or potential candidate, elected official, attacks her," Kristol said Monday on "The Steve Malzberg Show" on Newsmax TV. ---snip--- Kristol, who attended the Republican Jewish Coalition in Las Vegas over the weekend, said he was very impressed with Sen. Ted Cruz of Texas, the first Republican to declare his candidacy for president. "The big story of the weekend was Cruz....
  • Elizabeth Warren on Hillary Clinton's embrace of her populist message: 'Eh'

    Is Hillary Clinton co-opting Elizabeth Warren’s progressive message? Warren has a one-word answer: “Eh.” The Massachusetts senator and liberal hero added to her inscrutable initial response in an interview with the New Yorker: “She’s laying out her vision for the country and she deserves an opportunity to do that.” But the opaqueness of her answer will raise eyebrows about Warren’s role as a Democratic party powerbroker as she continues to put pressure on Clinton from the left. As Clinton turns towards populism to shore up the Democratic base in her run for the White House, her rhetoric increasingly sounds like...

    The Clintons are going to wear us all out. Even the patience of Democrats is already beginning to wear thin. As Bill Clinton denies that a certain meeting ever happened — a meeting that resulted in income to the family's foundation that wasn't claimed on their taxes, a dodge that certainly wasn't recorded in emails Hillary Clinton deliberately destroyed — you get the sense that support for the Clintons is beginning to crack. The best Democrats can do is throw up their hands. What difference does it make if all of the above are violations of the ethics and transparency...

    In recent days, revelations from the forthcoming book “Clinton Cash” have revealed controversial Clinton Foundation financial deals, some including with the federal government. The revelations have led to a campaign by Clinton allies to downplay the notion of wrongdoing. However, as a video montage shows in 2009, it was then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton who championed this new “controversial” expansion of public and private sector mergers, which left the Obama administration free to pick so-called “winners and losers” from a pool of Clinton foundation donors. Announcing the new “Global Partnership Initiative,” in 2009 at the Global Philanthropy Forum Conference, then-Secretary...

    On the Thursday edition of NBC’s Late Night, host Seth Meyers jumped aboard the Clinton campaign’s push to discredit the upcoming book Clinton Cash by Peter Schweizer by mocking Schweizer’s background, previous book titles, and chalking the book up to be nothing more than the latest work from “the cottage industry of anti-Clinton books that come out every year.” Dubbed the topic of the latest “A Closer Look” segment, Meyers introducted the book and that it’s been mentioned in the news before making a Game of Thrones reference to go after the GOP: “Now, when a new anti-Clinton book comes...

    You might think that the White House would have something of substance to say about the repeated violations of a memorandum of understanding between the administration and the Clinton Foundation that prohibited it from accepting donations from foreign governments while Hillary Clinton served as secretary of state. Wrong! When pressed by ABC News reporter Jonathan Karl on Friday about whether the White House was concerned by the Clinton FoundationÂ’s various indiscretions, or even its failure to disclose foreign donations including those from Uranium One, White House Press Sec. Josh Earnest seemed to suggest that they were not (h/t Washington...

    Tough-on-crime policies that emphasized arrests and convictions for relatively minor offenses have failed the country, Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Rodham Clinton said Wednesday, leading to overcrowded prisons and too many black men "missing" from their families and communities. "We need to restore balance to our criminal justice system," Clinton told an audience at Columbia University in New York. Calling for an "end to the era of mass incarceration," Clinton endorsed body cameras for police nationwide to record interactions between officers and potential suspects. Making her most specific policy proposals since launching her campaign earlier this month, Clinton said it's time...
