    RUSH: Hey, did you see that tweet from Chelsea Clinton over the weekend? Aw, you’re gonna love this. Chelsea Clinton tweeted out: “I need a thesaurus. What’s another word for horrifying? Sick? Awful? Running out of adjectives these days that mean unconscionably terrible.” And so Juanita Broaddrick replied, “Well [Chelsea], since you asked. Here’s my definition of horrifying, sick & awful. Answer: Your father, Bill Clinton.” Chelsea deleted the tweet shortly thereafter. And look at this. This is from Reuters. I know you’re getting tired of me talking about this. I beg you not to. I’ll try to ride herd...
  • Dear Feminists, when did "yes" start to mean "potentially/maybe/definitely no?"

    I found this meme while surfing around online, and I'm curious if anyone wants to offer up their take. The term "feminist" is one that is so polarizing it tends to cut right down the left-right divide, but this one has me wondering.The rationale of people who defend the message this woman presents is that a woman isn't actually saying "yes" in certain instances, such as while under the influence of alcohol...Ok...This logic reminds me of a quote from British author Paul Johnson (from his book Enemies of Socieity), emphasis is mine... (I)t is essential to use words accurately and...

    In letter, Bill Clinton defends family foundation By: Maggie Haberman August 16, 2013 04:16 PM EDT Bill Clinton offered a strong defense of his family foundation and insisted reports of mismanagement and deficits were taken out of context, in an unusual letter posted on the group’s website. The Friday post also addressed, for the first time, the audit that the foundation conducted in 2011, which led to a series of recommendations to bring change to a loosely-run, personality-driven organization after its first decade into a more sustainable structure. And the foundation released the summary of that audit. POLITICO reported earlier...

    The nation's official poverty rate was 15.1% last year, that equates to a record 46.2 million Americans living in poverty. With poverty levels rising for the past three years, average median U.S. income falling back to 1996 levels and income inequality at the highest levels since the Roaring 1920s, many Americans are starting to wonder: Is the American dream dying? "The American Dream has been under assault for 30 years," says former President Bill Clinton. I spoke with President Clinton on the eve of the Clinton Global Initiative's annual meeting in New York Monday, where "jobs jobs, jobs" is one...

    We've received many requests from freepers requesting that other freepers not post to them. There are several problems with this. 1. It's impossible for us to enforce.2. We don't have the time to enforce these requests.3. We don't have the software to keep track of these requests.4. Thick skin helps.5. Ignore the poster, if you don't reply, they won't reply. Free Republic does not need a bozo filter, bozo filters are for wimps. Final note: Trolls, troublemakers, disruptors, forum pests, malcontents, RINOs, liberals, stalkers, et al, would continue posting to (harassing) someone after being asked to stop.

    (CNSNews.com) - An Ohio man says former President Clinton elbowed him in the face after a Sunday campaign rally in Canton, Ohio. The man told Cybercast News Service that he has not ruled out taking legal action against the former president. Robert Holeman, who supports the presidential campaign of Sen. Barack Obama (D-Ill.), said he shouted Obama's name during the rally and then spoke to the former president as he was leaving the event. As shown on a videotape broadcast on MSNBC Monday morning, Clinton repeatedly wagged his finger in Holeman's face. At one point, Holeman said in an interview...

    TIJUANA, Mexico (Reuters) - A teenager was injured when U.S. border patrol agents fired tear gas into Mexico over the weekend, despite a Mexican government complaint that U.S. agents were using excessive force.

The teenager required stitches at a local hospital.

    Pakistan Rape Laws Draw Mixed Reactions November 15, 2006 2:56 PM EST ISLAMABAD, Pakistan - Pakistani lawmakers passed amendments to the country's rape laws Wednesday, ditching the death penalty for extramarital sex and easing a clause on making rape victims produce four witnesses to prove the case. The amendments enraged Islamic fundamentalists, but won cautious support from human rights activists, who wanted the controversial laws scrapped altogether. President Gen. Pervez Musharraf praised lawmakers for approving the amendments and criticized Islamic fundamentalists for their "unnecessary" opposition and claims that his government was acting against Islam. "I have taken a firm decision...

    Following today's buzz generating conversation with Bill Clinton, Chris Wallace shared some of his post-interview thoughts with FishbowlDC: I was delighted to get the chance to interview former President Clinton. This was the first one-on-one sitdown he's ever given "Fox News Sunday" during our 10 years on the air. The groundrules were simple--15 minutes--to be divided evenly between questions about the Clinton Global Initiative and anything else I wanted to ask. I intended to keep to the groundrules. In fact--I prepared 10 questions--5 on the CGI and 5 on other issues. I began the interview with 2 questions about Mr....

    Former president Bill Clinton praised wife Hillary's prospects to be elected the next US leader, but said her possible White House run is a taboo topic at home. "I'm superstitious about it," Clinton told NBC television in an interview, saying that, for the moment, his wife's sole focus is her bid for reelection to the US Senate in November. "One of our family rules is don't look past the next election," he said. Clinton, interviewed in New York, insisted that his wife still has not reached a final decision about running for the White House, but said if she does,...

    AUSTIN, Texas (AP) - Former President Clinton tearfully escorted a flag-draped casket Saturday carrying former Gov. Ann Richards into the state Capitol, where she will spend the next two days lying in state before her funeral and burial. Clinton delivered poignant and at times funny recollections of the woman he called "spontaneous, unedited, earthy, hilarious." He told about 50 of her close friends and family about a lunch he once shared in New York with Richards and a group that included comedians Billy Crystal and Robin Williams. "I thought to myself, I bet this is the only time in their...
