  • EVIL Clinton Pardons & Hillary Connected [aw!m vanity]

    If you think that the Clinton pardons don't apply to Hillary think again! She was neck-deep in the most shocking pardons her husband signed. How perverse were these pardons? I'll put it this way -- senators had almost unanymously condemned President Bill Clinton [in a vote of 95 to 2] for those sleazy pardons. Many of those senators now support Hillary and/or bash Trump EVEN THOUGH Hillary's own brother sold a pardon to a crack dealer for $400,000. The amount of crack involved was 800 pounds. But there were other evil pardons, such as Clinton granting clemency to FALN bomb...

    Barack Obama clobbered Hillary Rodham Clinton in the Potomac primaries Tuesday, but her Colorado superdelegates were still hanging tough behind her Wednesday. Certainly they saw the ugly numbers Tuesday night - especially out of Virginia - but the only math that seemed to matter to them at this point was what might happen in Texas and Ohio on March 4. That's the biggest day left on the primary calendar. Between them, Texas and Ohio have 389 delegates up for grabs. "It's too early to jump off any boats," said Maria Handley, a Boulder-based superdelegate...Handley is joined by Ramona Martinez and...

    Hillary Rodham Clinton threatened yesterday to pull out of an upcoming debate hosted by MSNBC after one of its correspondents said on air that daughter Chelsea was being "pimped out" by the campaign to win votes. Correspondent David Shuster made the remark Thursday night as he and others were discussing on air how Chelsea Clinton, 27, is taking an increasingly active role in the campaign. "Doesn't it seem as if Chelsea is sort of being pimped out in some weird sort of way?" Wolfson noted that just last month another MSNBC personality, Chris Matthews, apologized for saying the reason Clinton...

    Colorado Democrats caucused in record numbers Tuesday night, clueless about which candidate their party leaders prefer for president. That's because Gov. Bill Ritter, Sen. Ken Salazar, Rep. Mark Udall and Denver Mayor John Hickenlooper have refused to make picks ... But where is the backbone in silence? And what is more worthy of a clear stand than the question of who governs our country? "There's a certain responsibility to being a leader in your party. In a presidential race, that means taking a side," said state GOP chairman Dick Wadhams. Though Hillary Rodham Clinton and Barack Obama differ only slightly...

    On Sunday morning - amid intensified crossfire between Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton and Obama over the use of race in the Democratic presidential campaign - Wright was preaching from the Gospel of John, using his powerful style to link the story of the loaves and fishes to a contemporary political message… Some argue that blacks should vote for Clinton “because her husband was good to us,” he continued. “That’s not true,” he thundered. “He did the same thing to us that he did to Monica Lewinsky.” Many in the crowd were on their feet, applauding - amazed, amused and moved...

    CONCORD, N.H. - Democratic Hillary Rodham Clinton got by with a little help from her friends — Republican ones — and family on Friday. The presidential candidate, in a tight race with rival Barack Obama in the first primary state, was joined by her mother, Dorothy Rodham, and her daughter, Chelsea, as she appealed to female voters at the start of a two-day campaign swing. Rodham and the younger Clinton didn't address the crowd, but state Senate President Sylvia Larsen did. "I know about glass ceilings," said Larsen, only the third woman to lead the state legislative branch. Larsen said...

    It turns out our dossier on Hillary Clinton's brother, Anthony Rodham, was incomplete. As per today's New York Post, the youngest Rodham sibling allegedly owes ex-wife Nicole Boxer (daughter of Democratic California Senator Barbara Boxer) $75,000 in child support and $55,000 in alimony, despite having been ordered by a judge to pay up earlier this year. Deadbeat dad Anthony, who remarried in 2005 and now lives in a "fancy Washington townhouse," has quite the track record. In addition to the "Pardongate" fiasco we alluded to, the former insurance salesman was attacked at his family cottage in the Berkshires by a...
