  • Hillary Clinton’s tweet seeking emoji answers to a complicated issue backfires

    Market Watch ^ | August 12, 2015 | By Sally French and Jillian Berman
    Hillary Clinton is trying to tackle America’s student debt problem, and she’s trying to use emojis to help her case. Clinton on Monday announced plans dubbed “the new college compact” 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 hasn’t 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...

    HARRISBURG, Pa. (WPVI) -- Sources tell Action News that Pennsylvania Attorney General Kathleen Kane will be charged Thursday after an ongoing investigation into a grand jury leak. The exact charges are not yet known. The investigation centered on whether Kane had a role in disclosing information about a 2009 grand jury investigation to the Philadelphia Daily News last year. A grand jury recommended in December that Kane be charged for engaging in a cover-up and lying about her role in the leak. The grand jury's allegations were referred to Montomgery County District Attorney Risa Vetri Ferman.

    Hillary Clinton paid roughly $57 million in federal and state taxes over the last eight years based on a statement just released by the Democratic presidential candidate’s campaign. The statement does not say how much Clinton earned each year. She made roughly $15 million in charitable donations. “We’ve come a long way from my days going door-to-door for the Children’s Defense Fund and earning $16,450 as a young law professor in Arkansas — and we owe it to the opportunities America provides,” Clinton said in the statement.

    The State Department released a third batch of highly sought after emails from former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton's controversial private email account today. Posted on the State Department's Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) website, the collection includes just over 1,300 emails all dated in 2009. One email sent to Secretary Clinton in November of 2009 shows how then-Ambassador to Iraq Christopher Hill described Iraqis as "a collective pain in the neck." The State Department has established a full-time staff, with one project manager, two case analysts, nine FOIA reviewers and a slew of additional information analysts who have been...

    Democratic presidential front-runner Hillary Rodham Clinton is making her second fundraising visit to Chicago on Tuesday, attending an event at the home of securities trader Rajiv Fernando. In 2011, Obama appointed Fernando to serve on the International Security Advisory Board, a panel that was charged with advising then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton on sensitive security matters. After the appointment, ABC News raised questions about Fernando’s qualifications for the panel. Days after the report, which also noted Fernando’s contributions to the Clinton Foundation, the trader stepped down from the board, saying he did not have time to serve. Clinton is asking...

Clinton was noticeably absent from the roster of speakers expected this week in Phoenix at the Netroots Nation convention.

    Clinton's secret arms dealing -- and how it led to disaster in Libya. Hillary Clinton led the charge in the Obama administration to go to war in Libya. Her objective was to overthrow the regime of Col. Muammar el-Qaddafi. Not one to be deterred by opponents in the Pentagon and Congress to her reckless interventionist plans, Hillary decided to end-run them. Her State Department helped facilitate what Andrew P. Napolitano in his scathing article has called “Hillary’s secret war.” When the secret war began to backfire, as arms ended up in the hands of anti-American jihadists, Hillary Clinton and other...

Yet rather than criticize her — like those other men who just don't get it — I'd like to celebrate her amazing truth-bending superpowers. We've had males in high office who were great liars, like her husband. So why can't we have an awesome female liar, say a shrewd Mistress of...

What’s next?” “She appears to have taken a page out of the Elizabeth Warren book,” said Jack Ablin, chief investment office at BMO Private bank. “I’m sure a lot of polling went into that. But in terms of inequality and profit-sharing and general economic redistribution, she was a lot longer on problems than she was on solutions.” Many conservatives breathed a sigh of relief...

    Trustworthiness is a tricky thing in politics, a label that everyone demands but no one fully deserves. So one must be careful not to pass too harsh a judgement on Hillary Clinton, for whom polls reveal a real perception problem when it comes to being honest or trustworthy. CNN’s national polling sample says 57% of Americans don’t think she is either. ABC News and the Wall Street Journal put that number at 52%. In an interview with CNN on Tuesday, Hillary Clinton blamed the numbers on her political enemies. Then she proceeded to demonstrate why voters may not ultimately come...

    Representative Trey Gowdy, the South Carolina Republican who is chairman of the House subcommittee investigating the 2012 attacks in Benghazi, Libya, on Wednesday released a copy of a subpoena sent to Hillary Rodham Clinton, a day after she said in an interview that a subpoena was never issued. Mrs. Clinton’s aides did not immediately respond Wednesday to a request for comment. There have been several inquiries into the terrorist attacks on the American consulate in Benghazi on Sept. 11, 2012, which killed four Americans, including the ambassador to Libya. Mrs. Clinton has described these inquiries as partisan witch hunts.

And there are daily reminders that far from being Democrats’ best bet she may be the Republicans’ ideal opponent. First, she generates as much enthusiasm as dental surgery. But don’t just take my word for it. A new poll from Democracy Corps and Women’s Voices, Woman Vote Action Fund shows that Clinton’s hopes rest with “the changing demographic reality of the new American electorate. Unmarried women, people of color, millennials—voters of the Rising American Electorate (RAE)—will make up a majority of voters for the first time in...

The call from campaign manager Robby Mook apparently startled a crowd of 150 attending a $25-a-head fundraiser. It was part of his pitch to supporters to help in what is expected to be a well-funded and record-smashing $2.5 billion campaign. Appearing at the top-rated Mise en Place wine restaurant in Tampa Monday, Mook also said that Clinton plans to end Super PACs. Clinton has promised to remove "unaccountable money" from the political process if elected, but...

"We recognize it's an inconvenient time," Kirby said of the nighttime release. He said State officials would be working until the last minute to get the second tranche of emails out to meet a court-ordered deadline.

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.

A five-car convoy carrying the former president and a security detachment arrived out front of the luxury brand's landmark boutique on Monday at noon. Clinton, 68, spent more than an hour on the shop's third floor section, where windows were closed after his arrival. The observer speculated: "He's up there, probably buying the store." He reportedly left with several shopping bags. We can't help but wonder what he purchased and whether Clinton was shopping for himself or his wife and U.S....

I haven’t seen his State Department investigate this. So I’ve got to assume that the Obama White House is complicit in this lack of transparency and in this rule breaking and whatever else is going on that we don’t know about.”

And in Pennsylvania, 54% of voters don't find her honest, while 40% do. Compounding the possible issue for Clinton, being honest and trustworthy is also the top issue to voters in all three early states.

The proposal, which is also energizing Democrats on Capitol Hill, attempts to enshrine a promise that all Americans can attend a public college and get a four-year degree with little tuition cost and while incurring no student debt. One of Clinton's Democratic rivals, ex-Maryland Gov. Martin O'Malley, has endorsed the idea. Another Democratic candidate, Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders, has...

Her campaign has even made light of her penchant for pantsuits by selling a t-shirt version of the trademark style. You can buy the “Everyday Pantsuit Tee” for $30. The real thing will cost you a tad more, up to $1,400. Jackets by designer Nina McLemore—who has sold Clinton many a pantsuit, according to Politico—will set buyers back between $500 and $1,000. Pants cost about $400.

    The super PAC supporting Hillary Clinton’s presidential bid is struggling to raise money and now expects to collect only about $15 million through the end of June, people familiar with the matter said Wednesday. The group, Priorities USA Action, is shaking up its senior staff in hopes of jump-starting a fundraising operation that, five weeks after Mrs. Clinton entered the presidential race, has garnered only about $5 million in “hard commitments,” two people familiar with events say.

    The Chicago media executive hosting Hillary Clinton at his home for an afternoon fundraiser Wednesday ranks in the elite category of those who have given at least $25 million to the Clinton Foundation. The foundation’s website lists Eychaner’s Alphawood Foundation as a donor of somewhere between $10,001 and $25,001, but an examination of the Alphawood Foundation’s Form 990 tax documents reveals that it in fact contributed $7.25 million from 2003 to 2007. That’s not the only point of confusion: The low-profile Eychaner, a major Democratic fundraiser who started Alphawood, is listed by the Clinton Foundation as one of just seven...

    With Hillary Clinton rapidly approaching a month since she answered a question from a reporter, her allies are working to push back on the idea that she is ducking the press. "PUTTING THE VOTERS FIRST, HILLARY ASKS THE QUESTIONS THAT REALLY MATTER," read the subject line of an e-mail -- ALL CAPS in the original! -- that arrived in my inbox this morning courtesy of Correct The Record, a pro-Clinton super PAC directly coordinating with the presidential campaign on rapid response. The missive lays out the facts aimed at putting lie to the "she won't answer questions" narrative. The group...

    When Hillary Clinton was America's top diplomat, she also appeared at times like a top salesperson for America's biggest airplane maker, Boeing. A sales plug in Russia in 2009, though, may have proved especially fruitful. While touring a Boeing plant, Secretary of State Clinton said, "We're delighted that a new Russian airline, Rossiya, is actively considering acquisition of Boeing aircraft, and this is a shameless pitch." In 2010, Boeing landed the Russian deal, worth $3.7 billion. And two months later, the company donated $900,000 to the Clinton Foundation. This chain of events is raising new questions for Clinton, and Boeing,...

    Welcome to day 29 of the Hillary Clinton 2016 presidential campaign! In those 29 days -- including April 12, the day she announced, and today -- Clinton has taken a total of eight questions from the press. That breaks out to roughly one question every 3.6 days. Of late, she's taken even fewer questions than that.

    FACT CHECKER: “In New York, which I know a little bit about because I represented it for eight years and I live there now, our undocumented workers in New York pay more in taxes than some of the biggest corporations in New York.” –Hillary Clinton, roundtable in North Las Vegas, May 5, 2015 ...Comparing the taxes of hundreds of thousands of people to the tax bill of one corporation is a stretch and fairly misleading. Even the companies that pay little or no federal income taxes end up paying lots of other taxes. So it’s a nonsense comparison. We wavered...

    Hillary Clinton‘s stature has been battered after more than a month of controversy over her fundraising and email practices, but support for her among Democrats remains strong and unshaken, a new Wall Street Journal/NBC News poll finds. In just seven weeks, a period in which Mrs. Clinton formally began her presidential campaign, the share of people with a negative view of her jumped to 42% from 36% in last month’s survey, and only a quarter of registered voters said they viewed her as honest and straightforward, down from 38% last summer. But she remains highly regarded among Democrats, with 76%...

    “I don’t want to be another rich, dead dude.” So said Frank Giustra, the billionaire Canadian philanthropist who recently received the Dalai Lama Humanitarian Award from the Dalai Lama himself. For the Hollywood Reporter, Giustra is the Lions Gate Entertainment Corporation, which he founded 15 years ago or so. Moviegoers and TV watchers know Giustra, or rather Lionsgate, for The Hunger Games: Mockingjay, The Hurt Locker, Juno, Monster’s Ball, Orange is the New Black, and Nurse Jackie. Undoubtedly, based on the award and the Hollywood Reporter headline, the group of online journals that have arisen lately to lionize big givers...

    Hillary Rodham Clinton will hold five fund-raisers in two days this month, low-key events in private homes hosted by a number of longtime supporters of hers — and one prominent 2008 backer of Barack Obama. In New York City, Mrs. Clinton will appear at three receptions. One is at the home of Lisa Perry, whose husband is a hedge fund executive and who was a major supporter of Mrs. Clinton for her last three campaigns. The second will be hosted by Milly and Arne Glimcher, who supported Mr. Obama in his 2012 presidential re-election campaign, and the third will be...

    April 14, 2015 MONTICELLO, Iowa—Hillary Clinton may have been speaking to just 22 people here at her Iowa kickoff event, but the now-official 2016 candidate was looking far beyond the voters in the room when she outlined in the clearest terms yet the rationale for her campaign. "A lot of people in the last few days have asked me, 'Why do you want to do this?' and 'What motivates you?'" Clinton said at the event. "And I've thought a lot about it, and I guess the short answer is, I've been fighting for children and families my entire life. ......

    Imagine you're David Brock, James Carville or Lanny Davis. Stop: no! Can't do that to our Newsbusters readers. Let's just picture someone in the Hillary camp—even Herself. He/she's settled in front of the tube this morning, Grande, two-pump Vanilla, Non-Fat, Extra Hot Latte in hand, and tuned to fave: Morning Joe. Suddenly, from an array of people, you hear these phrases: "in jail for five to ten years"; "Clinton fatigue especially among Democratic primary voters"; "perjury charges"; "I'm still not certain she's going to be a candidate"; and "more and more people in the inside [saying] they don't think --...

    The latest example of cellphone video vindicating someone from false charges is a doozy. It comes from Washington Parish, La., and WWL TV. One of the worst days of Douglas Dendinger’s life began with him handing an envelope to a police officer. In order to help out his family and earn a quick $50, Dendinger agreed to act as a process server, giving a brutality lawsuit filed by his nephew to Chad Cassard as the former Bogalusa police officer exited the Washington Parish Courthouse. The handoff went smoothly, but Dendinger said the reaction from Cassard, and a group of officers...
