  • Trump Should Blame Clinton, Not Bush, for 9/11

    Repeating the Democratic mantra that President George W. Bush, barely eight months into his presidency on September 11, 2001, was responsible for the terrorist attacks on the World Trade Centers, Donald Trump says his immigration stance would have prevented the atrocity. On Monday, the mouth that roars told ďFox and Friends that his policies would have made it more difficult for the 9/11 hijackers to obtain visas and challenged presidential rival Jeb. Bushís assertion that his brother, President George W. Bush ďkept us safeĒ:

    Hillary Clinton says all female sexual-assault accusers 'have the right to be believed' but skips over accused child rapist she defended in the 1970s Ė and what of Bill's 'bimbo eruptions'? Hillary Clinton provoked a fearsome outrage from the political right on Monday with an online video in which she insists Americans should reflexively side with young women on college campuses who accuse male students of sexual assault. 'You have the right to be heard. You have the right to be believed. We're with you,' the Democratic front-runner says in the video, which she addresses 'to every survivor of sexual...

    Market Watch ^ | August 12, 2015 | By Sally French and Jillian Berman
    Hillary Clinton is trying to tackle Americaís student debt problem, and sheís trying to use emojis to help her case. Clinton on Monday announced plans dubbed ďthe new college compactĒ to commit $350 billion over the next 10 years to make college more affordable, if elected president. Then, she took to Twitter to ask people to use emoji to describe their feelings about student loan debt. The thing is, she hasnít gotten a whole lot of emoji responses. But most of all, her tweet seems to have backfired among most people on Twitter. Some noted that using sad faces, cats...

The statement does not say how much Clinton earned each year. She made roughly $15 million in charitable donations. ďWeíve come a long way from my days going door-to-door for the Childrenís Defense Fund and earning $16,450 as a young law professor in Arkansas ó and we owe it to the opportunities America provides,Ē Clinton said in the statement.

Vending machines lined the school hallways, offering sugary drinks and unhealthy snacks. With limited healthy options, Marybelle unsurprisingly developed habits that led to high cholesterol and high blood pressure.

The school's food service director ensures that students are served fresh fruits and vegetables. Bobby has motivated his mom to give up soda,...

Mrs. Clinton lacks some of the extraordinary gifts for connection and empathy that her husband possesses, and the round-table events that have characterized her early campaign can feel stage-managed. But even these settings are producing revealing moments, as Mrs. Clinton finds herself far from the world of international diplomacy and scrambling to re-educate herself about the nation she hopes to lead. A lot has changed since Mrs. Clinton left domestic politics to become the secretary of state: Student debt has ballooned, access to credit has tightened, and the cause of income inequality has taken on a forceful momentum.

    In what may be the most unlikely duo to show up at any Golden Globes after party, The Good Wife Star Alan Cumming attended HBO's Sunday night soiree arm-in-arm with none other than Monica Lewinsky. The odd couple looked to be having a great time, with the one-time political hopeful all in black and the Broadway performer in an all nude-colored suit. It was a rare, and high profile, glimpse at the duo who've been the best of friends since not long after Lewinsky became the country's most infamous intern.

    RUSH: Did you hear what happened with Don Lemon? You saw it? Yeah, and it is. And I'm wondering, you know, we -- (interruption) Who is saying "yes" to me? Snerdley?

    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...

    me is Monica Lewinsky. Though I have often been advised to change it, or asked why on earth I havenít. But, there we are. I havenít." Monica Lewinsky spoke at the Forbes Magazine 30 Under 30 Summit and spoke about the affair that almost brought down the Bill Clinton administration. In her 2,500 word speech she blamed her humiliation on the Drudge Report, Internet, Ken Starr, the NY Post's Page Six, everybody except for the married President with whom she had sexual relations. From the transcript: But back then, in 1995, we started an affair that lasted, on and off,...

    In May, Monica Lewinsky vowed to speak out in order "to stick my head above the parapet so that I can take back my narrative and give a purpose to my past." Now she seems to be doing just that -- on Twitter. Just months after Lewinskyís personal revelations were made public in a Vanity Fair interview, she sent her first tweet this morning.

    WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Keith Olbermann, a liberal television host whose MSNBC show focused in 1998 on President Bill Clinton's affair with White House intern Monica Lewinsky, once apologized to Clinton for his coverage, according to documents released on Friday. Olbermann sought the president's forgiveness for "whatever part I may have played in perpetuating this ceaseless coverage," according to a White House email describing his apology. The email was included in a new batch of previously unreleased Clinton administration documents that was made public by the Clinton Presidential Library.

    The Clinton White House tried just about everything to pull itself through the Monica Lewinsky scandal. A trove of documents released Friday by the Clinton Presidential Library sheds light on the White Houseís internal machinations as it coped with the scandal ó from efforts to discredit rivals and attack the media to attempts to boost West Wing spirits by sharing supportive op-eds or the unfavorable poll numbers for special prosecutor Kenneth Starr.The emails follow the arc of the scandal as it grew from a media frenzy to a constitutional crisis and then began to subside as President Bill Clinton regained...

    Former President Bill Clinton returned to his old haunts of northwestern Arkansas on Tuesday and implored college students to support Democrats at risk of losing what's left of the political power they have held since Reconstruction. Next to the building where he once taught law, Clinton challenged students at the University of Arkansas to turn out for an election without a big national race. "The polls that show us in trouble uniformly believe that younger voters who voted for president will not show up in a midterm," Clinton said.

    Back in the 1990s, then-President Bill Clinton instituted the donít ask, donít tell ban on gays in the military and signed the Defense of Marriage Act, both now in historyís dustbin. On Oct. 25, Clinton will headline the Human Rights Campaignís huge annual shindig in Washington, expected to draw 3,000 monied guests, the group said Thursday. The event is already sold out. The Hill quotes an interview Clinton gave in 2009 in which he said he was wrong to sign DOMA: ďI grew up in a different time. And I was hung up about the word. And I had all...
