  • It’s Still Bill Clinton, but the Old Magic Seems Missing

    01/28/2016 8:39:06 AM PST · by RoosterRedux · 41 replies
    Bill Clinton came to the vote-rich city of Mason City on Wednesday night and recounted his wife's life experiences, recited her policy ideas, and ripped into the Republicans a bit. But what Mr. Clinton used to do so well -- and what Hillary Clinton needs, only days before the Iowa caucuses on Monday -- was nowhere to be found: a polished, piercing critique of an opponent, in this case Bernie Sanders. At an event in Las Vegas last week, Mr. Clinton, 69, looked smaller and his voice seemed weaker than in past campaigns, and people had to strain to hear...

    [video at link] "I think that Donald Trump or any candidate on the other side of the aisle would raise Bill Clinton as somehow a negative, to their peril. I think every poll I've ever seen shows that if President Clinton were a candidate tomorrow he'd be reelected. He presided at that time over the longest period of sustained prosperity up to that point. Finished his term very popular and continues to be one of the most admired elected officials, and former elected officials, and men in the world."

    Donald Trump is blaming an intern after he seemingly took a shot at Iowa voters in a Twitter post Thursday insinuating that the reason Ben Carson is now beating him in the early voting state is because GOPers are eating too much genetically modified corn. “#BenCarson is now leading in the #polls in #Iowa,” Trump seemingly quoted a fan on Twitter. “Too much #Monsanto in the #corn creates issues in the brain? #Trump #GOP”

    Back in June a bright, young, soon-to-be Deutsche Bank intern prepared for his first summer on Wall Street. He told us he knew what he was getting into: "Terrible hours." He was right. On this 21-year-old's very first day, he was staffed on a project at 8 p.m. and ended up working until 2:30 a.m. His hours have let up somewhat since, but he rarely leaves before 10:30 p.m. or 11:30 p.m. On weekends, if he's not working and can meet a friend for lunch, he'll choose a table near an open window because the fresh air is such a...

    Democratic presidential contender Hillary Clinton on Wednesday made a stop in Bronzeville where she pledged to improve the availability of quality affordable child care, saying it was important in restoring the economy and the middle class. Clinton also sought to take on the issue of income inequality — something Democratic progressives have said is needed for her campaign to be successful. While speaking at a roundtable of a dozen child-care workers and parents, Clinton sought to make a middle-class connection. The child-care facility is represented by the politically active Service Employees International Union Healthcare Illinois, and Tom Balanoff, president of...

    Shameless. There's no other word to describe Monica Lewinsky. Sixteen years after her affair with President Bill Clinton became public knowledge, she's returned to the limelight with a campaign against cyberbullying -- of which she claims to have been "patient zero." Ignore the fact that she was patently not the primary victim in the Zippergate affair (poor Hillary Clinton was) or that any comparison with someone suffering a disease, especially at a time when people are dropping dead from Ebola, is tasteless in the extreme. What's most depressing is that when she rejoined the public stage, she said she was...

  • Elizabeth Warren pays interns $0 per hour!

    04/12/2013 12:05:39 PM PDT · by SeekAndFind · 41 replies
    Elizabeth Warren has gained notoriety recently for complaining that the minimum wage would be $22 per hour if it kept up with worker productivity gains over the past several decades.Warren’s analysis was fundamentally flawed because it did not measure increased productivity of minimum wage unskilled workers or justify paying $45,000 per year as a minimum regardless of worker skills. Moreover, Warren cherry-picked the $22 number, ignoring other much lower numbers in the study on which she relied based on other measurements.But it was a YouTube and media hit, and has solidified Warren’s role as progressive champion, particularly when Warren...

    DUNLAP, Calif. (AP) - Authorities are trying to determine what provoked a lion at an exotic animal park in Central California to attack and maul to death a 24-year-old intern from Washington state. She was attacked and killed Wednesday when she entered the male African lion's enclosure at Cat Haven, about 45 miles east of Fresno, authorities said. Sheriff's deputies found her severely injured and still lying inside the enclosure with the lion nearby, said Fresno County sheriff's Lt. Bob Miller. Another park worker couldn't lure the lion into another pen, so deputies shot and killed it to safely reach...

Joe Scarborough (R-FL). Officials in Fort Walton Beach, Florida, determined that Lori Klausutis died from an accident. The mainstream press largely ignored the case, but our review of several investigative reports indicates the official finding is highly questionable. Does that mean Joe Scarborough is a murderer? No. But we suspect someone who had access to Scarborough’s office in 2001...

    The case against an intern serving in the Newark, N.J., office of Sen. Robert Menendez, a Democrat from that state, who was arrested Dec. 6 reportedly for being both an illegal immigrant and a sex offender, apparently has gone underground. The Associated Press reported that Immigration and Customs Enforcement officers arrested 18-year-old Luis Abraham Sanchez Zavaleta outside of his Newark home. However, there seems to be no record of the arrest, the progress of Sanchez’s case, or that he is even still in custody.

If confirmed, this overtly political act further demonstrates the shocking politicization of immigration enforcement under the current DHS leadership, charged the Federation for American Immigration Reform (FAIR).

    This is a story about a young and impressionable female intern in the White House -- a virgin, with girlish dreams about princes and presidents. Young girls are trained to marry the wealthiest or most powerful man on the block. When the prince comes calling, few young girls can resist this opportunity. However, they are not the ones who are abusing power and betraying both youth and a wife. That would be the prince or president himself. And no, I am not talking about Monica Lewinsky in the Clinton White House. I am talking, sadly, about the recent revelations by...

Romney recently said, "The government of the United States is not a place for a president to be an intern. You need to have experience actually leading and running things." He has said it more than once, so there's no mistaking -- and it's a smart line of attack. Romney is onto something, turning his attention to Hillary before he's had a chance to win a primary or caucus. He has a point about experience. Unlike Romney, and unlike Rudy Giuliani, Clinton hasn't...

    Political fundraiser Antoin "Tony" Rezko made a modest pitch to U.S. Sen. Barack Obama last year. Rezko recommended a 20-year-old student from Glenview for one of the coveted summer internships in Obama's Capitol Hill office. Now, that otherwise unremarkable internship--one of nearly 100 Obama's office awarded in 2005--raises new questions for the senator, who says he has never done any favors for Rezko. In October, Rezko was indicted on influence-peddling charges and for alleged business fraud. Rezko, a real-estate and fast-food entrepreneur, has emerged as a central figure in a series of state government corruption scandals. He began cultivating a...

    Bucking party leadership and most of her congressional colleagues, House Democratic Whip-elect Rep. Nancy Pelosi has endorsed Rep. Gary Condit for re-election -- a move that has "thrilled" the embattled incumbent but could spell headaches for Democrats. "I endorsed Gary for re-election a long time ago," Pelosi of San Francisco said in a statement released by her office yesterday. "However, I have not spoken to any member encouraging them to support Gary or to discourage them from supporting his opponent (state Assemblyman Dennis Cardoza)." She called the election "a matter between Gary and his constituents." With less than two months...

    DEFENDING AMERICA David H. Hackworth 17 March 98 LOOSE LIPS, SINK SHIPS.. While at the Pentagon, Monica Lewinsky traveled with Defense Secretary William Cohen, sat in on briefings where the highest secrets were discussed and routinely handled highly classified documents ­ top-secret documents, which, if they fell in the wrong hands, could put America at high risk and cost the lives of our warriors. But no sweat. Lewinsky had all the appropriate clearances, right? No doubt her background had been thoroughly checked out by investigators. Or perhaps she'd been given a top-secret clearance in a hurry on order of a...

    Many of our students don't know what's it's like to work," said Lynn Lyford, vice president of the cooperative education program at Northeastern University. "(Co-op) not only gives students the experience, but it enhances what they learn in the classroom … They get evaluations, go to meetings. These students are considered employees of the employers' organizations." (A co-op) is not like your traditional intern where you get coffee and wash the boss' car," said former Northeastern student Christopher Beasley, 23, who landed a job with NASA after completing a co-op with the company. "You interview like it's a real job."

    About FreedomWorks Our Founding Fathers risked everything in the battle for independence. They created a new form of government and a Constitution to safeguard our freedoms. Over subsequent years, ground was lost to those with a different vision. Advocates for bigger government and less freedom successfully enacted ideas that have extended government's reach into more and more aspects of our daily lives. Some individuals responded to that challenge by establishing academic centers and think tanks that have done much to shape the debate. FreedomWorks moves beyond the policy community to educate and mobilize volunteers across America on issues of economic...
