  • Hillary Clinton calls for funding boycott of Tea Party, conservatives9(VIDEO @ Site)

    Washington Examiner ^ | July 3 2014 | Paul Bedard
    Claiming that the uncompromising nature of new conservative politicians and their actions, like the 2013 federal government shutdown, are personally distressing and internationally damaging, Hillary Clinton said that Americans should not be supporting and funding “organizations that take that kind of view.” Without mentioning names or groups, Clinton in a C-SPAN interview airing Saturday at 7 p.m. ET was clearly attacking the Tea Party and their Senate leaders like Texas Sen. Ted Cruz by mentioning the Cruz-led shutdown and the uncompromising positions several conservatives, even House Speaker John Boehner, have taken on key issues. “We have to make sure we...

    Hillary Clinton’s most recent memoir is not doing so well. Hard Choices sold only 26,000 copies in its third week on the market, down 46 percent from the previous week. It’s currently number 51 on the Amazon Best Sellers List, which is worth putting into context. Here are a few of the books that are ranked higher than Hard Choices:

    If book tours are supposed to be promotional, someone should tell Hillary Clinton she’s doing it wrong. The former First Lady stuck her foot in her mouth once again on the topic of her massive wealth in an interview with The Guardian, published Saturday. When asked how — if she decides to run for president in 2016 — she expects to have credibility among voters on the topic of inequality in the U.S. if she herself is part of the problem, Clinton drew a line between her own massive wealth and that of other wealthy people. “But they don’t see...

    Daily Beast ^ | 06.09.14 | Lloyd Green
    Hillary Clinton’s strength among white voters is the key to 2016—and it spells nearly certain defeat and disaster for Republicans. Culture will likely shape the 2016 presidential elections, and this is bad news for the Republican Party. Recent polls show Hillary Clinton running well among white voters overall, showing real strength among white non-evangelical Protestants, and running competitively among white Catholics. Trailing only among evangelicals, Clinton is poised to move beyond the upstairs-downstairs coalition that brought Barack Obama to the White House, and that continues to characterize his policies and presidency to this day.

    Hillary Clinton's successful 1975 legal defense of an accused rapist has surfaced again with the victim, angered over a tape of Clinton chuckling over her courtroom tactics in the case, lashing out at the potential Democratic presidential candidate. "Hillary Clinton took me through hell," the victim told the Daily Beast in an emotional interview published today. The woman said that if she saw Clinton today she would say, "I realize the truth now, the heart of what you've done to me. And you are supposed to be for women?

    The Atlantic ^ | 6/19 | Peter Beinart
    Charges of sexism are overhyped—and after all, she's encouraged people to just use her first name. I’ve spent the last few months on a longish essay about what kind of president Hillary Clinton would be. Writing about her record in government proved challenging. So did writing her name. With most politicians, it’s easy. First reference: You write their first and last name. Second reference: last name, plus title if you’re feeling formal. With the former senator and secretary of state, however, it’s trickier. Calling her “Clinton” poses an obvious problem, especially if—like me—you’re simultaneously writing about the other Clinton who...

    Politico ^ | 14 Jun 2014 | MAGGIE HABERMAN
    Hillary Clinton’s out-of-the-gate stumbles in interviews this week reflect an issue she’s faced repeatedly during her political career – defensiveness with the media, and difficulty acknowledging a mistake. By most measures, Clinton handled her hour-long interview with ABC News’ Diane Sawyer well – she was tonally on-point about Monica Lewinsky and effectively handled a question about her age. She gently mocked Karl Rove for insinuations about her health. But in the current media environment, it’s the gaffes that stand out. And her clunky response on why she and her husband have made exorbitant amounts in speaking fees – and her...

    On Wednesday, during a tense exchange lasting more than seven minutes, Gross asked Clinton 10 different ways about the evolution of her stance on gay marriage. But, unlike some recent TV interviews Clinton has given, the takeaway was not Gross's pointed inquiries, but the fact that they seemed to get under Clinton's skin, who snapped back at her interlocutor. "You know, I really, I have to say, I think you're being very persistent, but you are playing with my words and playing with what is such an important issue," Clinton said after trying to put the issue to rest several...

    If Hillary Clinton´s much ballyhooed — and ultimately disastrous — national book tour is any indication, Democrats face some hard choices in the months ahead about whom they can run for president. You can´t blame Clinton for scheduling her "Hillary Week" at a time when there was so much real news going on. But she certainly deserves blame for the fact that the only coverage she managed to get from her book tour was all bad.

He added: “She’s way past her prime. Plus she has a lousy track record. What did she achieve as secretary of State? She wrecked Libya. She destroyed the Arab Crescent. She gave us a new Cold War. She called Putin ‘Hitler.’ “That’s not a great set of qualifications,” he concluded. As for the current occupant of the Oval Office, Savage called it “crazy” that so many Americans...

Clinton did not say definitively whether or not she will testify before the new committee if called to do so. “That’s going to be up to the people running the hearing,” she said. “We’ll see what they decide to do,...

    In a nutshell here is my take on all of the recent arrests/indictments of crooked Democrats. I believe these things are not a coincidence. When two arrests/indictments become three stories then grow to five they demand a closer look. I believe we may be seeing a bottom-level up rebellion in the Department of Justice carried out by the remaining honest FBI agents and what is left of the “Christian Adams” wing of the Department of Justice’s legal staff. These “conspirators” are daring Eric Holder and Barack Obama to try to play “whack-a-mole” all over the country. This would explain why...

Then, this week, came a piece on the Washington Free...

The committee, chaired by Sen. Dianne Feinstein, (D-CA), faults the State Department and intelligence community for failing to prevent the attacks. The committee determined that the U.S. military command did not know about a CIA annex in Benghazi and that, writes The Washington Post, "...the Pentagon didn't have the resources in place to defend the State Department...

    Faced with peanut-sized Jimmy Carter poll numbers, disturbing big-donor reluctance, unacceptable unemployment and depressing economic forecasts, President Obama heads back on the road tomorrow to do what he always does when in trouble: Call again for someone to do something about new jobs. He's just back from eight days in Hawaii and Australia and Bali. Now, he's off to palm-tree-free New Hampshire, where as expected Republicans have been plotting for months to oust him next Nov. 6. Recent polls have Obama's disapproval around 50% and his approval 6-10 points lower, worse for his handling of the economy. That's the reverse...

    SECRETARY OF STATE Hillary Rodham Clinton is more popular than President Obama, the onetime rival who grudgingly dubbed her “likable enough’’ on the New Hampshire campaign trail. According to a new Gallup poll, 66 percent of those surveyed have a favorable view of Clinton, giving her a higher rating than the president (54 percent favorable) or vice president (46 percent favorable). The Gallup poll was conducted from March 25 to 27, while the United States was actively involved in its controversial Libya mission; other polling is even more negative about Obama. As Libya goes, so goes Obama, and Clinton, too....
