    Hillary Clinton has been playing a dangerous game with China. After over a decade of illegal contributions to the Democratic party and special favors by the Clintons, Hillary has turned on her old Chinese friends and sold them out in a desperate bid to win in 2008. The American dollar and economy have suffered collateral damage in this Clinton double cross with China. "Chinagate" was the name for numerous illegal campaign contributions from the PRC to the Democrats that helped them to win the 1996 elections. As you may remember back in 1996, the Clinton administration's apparently traded missile secrets...

    The Tyranny of Super-Delegates Barack Obama's stirring victory in Iowa was also a good night for our democracy. The turnout broke records and young people – who were mobilized and organized – participated in unprecedented numbers. And now that Iowans have spoken – the first citizens in the nation to do so – here's the Democratic delegate count for the top three candidates (2,025 delegates are needed to secure the nomination): Clinton – 169 Obama – 66 Edwards – 47 "Huh?" you say.

    It is hard not to feel sorry for Hillary Clinton. She is, in so many ways, the perfect presidential candidate for the Democrats. She has the brains and the name, the money and the machine. (snip) And yet, when actual voters are given the chance to seal the deal, too many of them balk, as they did in Iowa this week. Coming third in Iowa, with more than two-thirds of the voters choosing other candidates, is a shocking blow to the Clinton campaign. Yet the pollsters have always known what her problem is. Her problem is that a lot of...

    As the presidential candidates engage in furious pre-caucus spin, one of Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton's most prominent Iowa supporters said Wednesday that she's already accomplished what she needs to in Iowa, and can declare success even if she finishes in third place. Asked if the order of finish matters, Former governor Tom Vilsack, D-Iowa, deflected the question. "She absolutely had to be competitive and she's accomplished that," he said. "Obviously everybody's interested in winning, and I think we're going to do well. It's tight. There's no question about that." In May, Vilsack was quoted in the Washington Post, saying, "There's...

    Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton was praised in the wake of the assassination of former Pakistani Prime Minister Benazir Bhutto for demonstrating her command of the players and the issues at stake in Pakistan, even as another candidate, former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee, was criticized for stumbling over details. But in two confident television appearances, on CNN and ABC, Clinton made an elementary error about Pakistani politics: She described President Pervez Musharraf as a "candidate" who would be "on the ballot." In fact, Musharraf was reelected to the presidency in October. The upcoming elections are for parliament, and while Musharraf's party...

And out in rural Western Iowa, Bubba is back. ... While his speech differed little from the one he gives in upscale audiences, his presence there indicates both the potential his wife’s campaign sees in the West and the fact that the former...

    House arrest for lawmaker extradited to US MIAMI: A Philippine lawmaker accused of tax evasion and making illegal campaign contributions to US politicians can post bail but will be under 24-hour house arrest in Florida until trial, a US judge ruled on Tuesday. Despite arguments from US prosecutors that Mark Jimenez should be kept in jail because he might flee and “cannot be trusted,” US Magistrate Ted Bandstra set a series of conditions meant to allow the congressman to be freed but keep him on a tight leash. Jimenez, who turned 56 on Tuesday, arrived in Miami on Sunday to...

    Mark B. Jimenez provided crucial testimony that led to the overthrow of a world leader. Jimenez fingered Philippine President Joseph Estrada in a series of bribery scandals that pointed directly toward Beijing and the Chinese Triad organized crime syndicates. In the end, the Philippine president could not withstand the allegations. He left the office in disgrace. Jimenez arrived Sunday in the United States, where he is rumored to be ready to testify against Bill Clinton. In 1999, Jiminez, a Miami businessman, was charged with 17 counts of making illegal contributions to then-President Clinton's 1996 re-election campaign. Jimenez is accused of...

    While Rep. Mark Jimenez prepares to barricade himself at his yellow brick abode in Forbes Park (you didn’t for one moment think he was holed up in Manila’s impoverished District 6, did you?) in an attempt to stop the Department of Justice from forcibly transferring him to a government guesthouse with iron grills, we are once again hearing the Jimenez camp trotting out the usual line that he is paying the price for having been too close to former US President Bill Clinton. But a few weeks ago we had a pleasant dinner in a private home in Makati...

    Case in Manila court MANILA Representative Mark B. Jimenez is no international terrorist, but the head of the US Federal Bureau of Investigation wants him badly just the same. How badly? Nothing short of a swift extradition, according to visiting FBI director Robert Mueller who refuses to even acknowledge Jimenez's current official title. To Mueller, the fugitive is just plain old "Mr. Jimenez". "We want Mr. Jimenez extradited expeditiously back to the US to face charges. The extradition of Mr. Jimenez is important to us," the FBI chief told newsmen Monday at the US embassy's seafront compound along Roxas Boulevard....
