  • Hillary Can’t Type: Look To Huma’s And Cheryl’s Emails

    03/23/2015 5:47:44 PM PDT · by Hojczyk · 78 replies
    Don’t expect a gold mine of emails on Hillary’s private account. Why not? Because she doesn’t know how to type. That’s right. She writes everything out in longhand. Really. Anyone who has spent time in meetings with her knows about her endless yellow pads. So her emails will most likely turn out to be very short and quick. She wouldn’t spend a lot of time pecking out long letters. No way. That’s why the Benghazi Committee needs to also look very closely at the emails on private accounts that Hillary’s closest aides, Huma Abedin and Cheryl Mills, maintained. Anything more...

    Daily Mail Online ^ | 11 Mar 15 | David Martosko
    An unusual time-lapse video made by a Washington, D.C. nonprofit fundraiser and his friends shows former Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton aging from her teen years to the present. Clinton, 67, is the presumptive Democratic White House front-runner and would be 69 years and 86 days old if she were to become president after the 2016 elections. That would make her the second-oldest chief executive to move into the White House behind only Ronald Reagan, who took office 17 days before he turned 70.

Their days are growing dark.” Dark, indeed. America’s soon-to-be cultural-Marxist-in-chief would then spend the greater part of a decade waging war against our nation’s Judeo-Christian culture and heritage at levels, and in ways, unseen in our storied history. Today, his anti-Christian crusade continues unabated. In fact, and with less than two years left to complete his baleful conspiracy, this neo-pagan extremist has begun to...

    It’s bad enough that radical homosexualists are targeting Christian businesses, state laws protecting marriage and other “grown up” institutions, but what’s worse is that this evil movement has in its twisted cross-hairs your little children in public schools, children who are too young to be introduced to sex lessons, much less the perverse, abominable concept of homosexual behavior. Brian Camenker of MassResistance has released a report about the militant homosexual advocacy group, the Human Rights Campaign (HRC), and its degenerate offensive of pro-homosexual indoctrination of school kids all across the nation. In the report, “Major corporations funding 'gay' indoctrination in...

Among other things, the law made it a crime for citizens to engage in...

    A high profile gay rights activist and Democrat fundraiser has been charged with sexually abusing a 15-year-old boy with his boyfriend. Terry Bean, 66, co-founded two of the biggest national campaign groups and raised more than $500,000 for Barack Obama's 2012 re-election bid. He was arrested at his home in southwest Portland on Wednesday and indicted with two counts of third-degree sodomy and one count of third-degree sex abuse.
  • Anti-gay marriage group accuses IRS of leaking Romney donation details

    The group claims it appears somebody within the IRS fed the Human Rights Campaign the documents listing 2008 contributors. On the list was a $10,000 donation from Romney's political action committee. In a blog in late March, the Human Rights Campaign declared it had uncovered one of the group's "top secret donors," and accused Romney of "essentially funding NOM's strategy of using racial division and unfounded scare tactics to attack LGBT equality." The donation came as the National Organization for Marriage and other groups were fighting for the Proposition 8 measure banning gay marriage in California. But the gay marriage...

    Terry Bean, a Portland power player in national Democratic politics and the gay rights movement, was arrested today on charges of sex abuse in a case involving a 15-year-old boy. Law enforcement sources familiar with the case say Bean will be charged with two counts of sodomy in the third degree, a felony, and sex abuse in the third degree, a misdemeanor. The arrest comes after a six-month investigation that began with allegations Bean secretly made video recordings of men having sex in his bedroom. As WW reported in June, Bean accused a former lover, Kiah Lawson, of attempting to...

    WASHINGTON (BP) -- The Human Rights Campaign brings a notable track record of helping change public opinion on homosexuality. Now it has set its sights on persuading Baptists and other Mississippians that homosexuality is compatible with Christianity. The country's largest lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) civil rights organization unveiled its "All God's Children" public relations campaign Nov. 10. The drive to increase public and legislative support for LGBT rights is focused on faith in a state Gallup pollsters found early this year to be the most religious in the country.

    So when does Hillary Clinton start campaigning for Democrat candidates this year? Or perhaps the better question is WILL she campaign for Democrat candidates this year? Get this. Hillary expects to be coronated as the Democrat presidential nominee in 2016 and thus far there is NO indication that she will lift a finger (or spend money) to help Democrat candidates in this year's elections. How can she ask for their support in 2016 when all indications are she will do NOTHING to help them in 2014. Of course, Hillary is probably worried about putting her "reputation" on the line if...

    A Hillary Clinton presidential candidacy looks like a sure thing, with marquee Democratic donors and activists mobilizing for what they see as her inevitable entrance into the 2016 race. Yet some of Mrs. Clinton's closest confidants and allies aren't sold on the idea that she should run. Their cautions add an unpredictable element as Mrs. Clinton weighs whether to seek the presidency again, a decision she says she plans to make later this year. One of Mrs. Clinton's top advisers and former aides, Cheryl Mills, believes she should stay out of the contest and has told her as much, according...

The archive paints Clinton, a former U.S. senator, U.S. secretary of state, and possible 2016 presidential candidate, as a ‘strong, ambitious, and ruthless Democratic operative,” the Free Beacon concluded. “The Hillary Papers” include “correspondence, diaries, interviews, strategy memos, and contemporaneous accounts of conversations with the Clintons ranging from the mid-1970s to the turn of the millennium.”

The decision has political implications for President Obama, who needs an enthusiastic turnout from black voters to help him win reelection in November but angered some African-American church pastors with his announcement this month that he believes gays and lesbians should have the right to marry.

    Did GOP presidential candidate Mitt Romney’s political action committee violate state law by failing to report a $10,000 donation to the National Organization for Marriage just three weeks before the election to decide California’s Prop. 8? That’s the charge from the Human Rights Campaign, the nation’s largest lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender civil rights organization, which Friday released previously undisclosed IRS documents from the National Organization for Marriage documenting the donation from the Romney PAC. NOM, a group which – like Romney, believes “marriage is an institution between a man and a woman” – was a key player in backing...

    President Barack Obama is headlining the Human Rights Campaign's annual dinner Saturday night, addressing the gay rights group less than two weeks after the military ended its ban on openly gay service members, an effort Obama championed. With the president increasingly focused on his 2012 campaign, some gay advocates believe Obama will wait until after the election to make any significant announcement on his position on gay marriage. "He really has been an incredible champion for the issues that are important to us," Sainz said. "It's fair to say we've made more progress in the past two years than we...

    The White House is giving free-speech opponents a megaphone. An unprecedented collaboration between the Obama administration and the Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC, formerly called the Organization of the Islamic Conference) to combat “Islamophobia” may soon result in the delegitimization of freedom of expression as a human right. The administration is taking the lead in an international effort to “implement” a U.N. resolution against religious “stereotyping,” specifically as applied to Islam. To be sure, it argues that the effort should not result in free-speech curbs. However, its partners in the collaboration, the 56 member states of the OIC, have no...

    In a move that may be the first of its kind in the country, Cambridge will soon begin making payments to same-sex married public employees to defray the cost of what local officials have called a discriminatory federal tax. Beginning in July, the city will begin paying quarterly stipends to city employees in a same-sex marriage who must pay federal taxes on the value of the health benefits their spouse receives from the city. Federal law requires employers to calculate the value of the benefits received by a same-sex spouse as taxable income to the employee, but health benefits of...

    A report that Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton is interested in becoming the World Bank’s next president could create an opening for Senate Foreign Relations Chairman John Kerry (D-Mass.), who has previously expressed interest in the Cabinet position. A Clinton spokesman denied Reuters’ report Thursday that Clinton is talking with the Obama administration about resigning if World Bank President Robert Zoellick steps down when his term ends in the middle of 2012. Clinton has made clear that she is not interested in a second term as Secretary of State should President Barack Obama be re-elected. Kerry’s office was unavailable...

    In adherence to the old newsroom adage that opinions are free and facts precious, in three-and-a-half decades as a journalist I have declared my own view on a public policy issue precisely once. Having covered, before age 30, four cases of men charged with capital murder who were innocent, I concluded that the death penalty was wrong, and explained my reasoning a decade ago in a conservative magazine under the theory that this was the constituency that most needed convincing. --snip-- But does that mean that the other side shouldn't be allowed to have its say in court? Does it...

    The NBA fined Kobe Bryant $100,000 on Wednesday for using a derogatory gay term in frustration over a referee's call. NBA Commissioner David Stern issued a swift disciplinary ruling after the Los Angeles Lakers' five-time NBA champion guard cursed and used the homophobic slur when referee Bennie Adams called a technical foul on him Tuesday night in the third quarter of a victory over the San Antonio Spurs. ''Kobe Bryant's comment during last night's game was offensive and inexcusable,'' Stern said. ''While I'm fully aware that basketball is an emotional game, such a distasteful term should never be tolerated. ......

    Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton said Wednesday she does not want to stay in her job if President Barack Obama wins a second term in 2012. The nation's top diplomat also firmly said she neither has plans to mount another White House bid nor interest in other posts, such as vice president or defense secretary. Clinton, visiting Cairo, was asked whether she would stay on in a second Obama term. She also was asked if she would like the jobs of president, vice president or defense secretary. She offered single word responses to each: "No." Speculation about Clinton's future...

    The Obama administration has marked its first foray into the UN human rights establishment by backing calls for limits on freedom of expression. The newly-minted American policy was rolled out at the latest session of the UN Human Rights Council, which ended in Geneva on Friday. American diplomats were there for the first time as full Council members and intent on making friends. President Obama chose to join the Council despite the fact that the Organization of the Islamic Conference holds the balance of power and human rights abusers are among its lead actors, including China, Cuba, and Saudi Arabia....

    President Obama's repeal of the "Don't Ask, Don't Tell" policy is already damaging the U.S. military. An Army lieutenant colonel has asked to be relieved of command rather than order his troops to go through pro-homosexual indoctrination following the repeal of the policy, which required homosexuals to keep silent about their sexual preference. Currently the commander of a battalion-sized unit in the Army National Guard, the officer also has threatened to resign his commission rather than undergo "behavior modification" training intended to counter his religious convictions about homosexuality.
