    Soon there will be three anti-Clinton books on the market, which is apparently enough to have gotten under the skin of Team Hillary. The First Family Detail by Ronald Kessler, set for release next month, will join Clinton, Inc. by the Weekly Standard’s Daniel Halper and Blood Feud by Ed Klein on bookshelves. Yesterday we reported that Clinton, Inc. has shot up the charts and now both Halper and Klein’s books are outselling Hillary Clinton’s recent memoir Hard Choices. “With Klein, Halper and Kessler, we now have a Hat Trick of despicable actors concocting trashy nonsense,” Clinton spokesman Nick Merrill...

  • More on the Timing of Petraeus’s Resignation

    11/10/2012 11:17:04 AM PST · by Perdogg · 29 replies
    Ronald Kessler of Newsmax has more details on the Petraeus affair. They are rather sordid, and raise more questions about the timing of his resignation: [A]n FBI source says the investigation began when American intelligence mistook an email Petraeus had sent to his girlfriend as a reference to corruption. Petraeus was commander of U.S. Forces in Afghanistan from July 4, 2010 until July 18, 2011. The investigation began last spring, but the FBI then pored over his emails when he was stationed in Afghanistan. … Given his top secret clearance and the fact that Petraeus is married, the FBI continued...

    Ronald Kessler reporting from Washington, D.C. — The resignation of David H. Petraeus as CIA director followed an FBI investigation of many months, raising the question of why he was not forced out until after the election. In his letter of resignation, Petraeus cited an extra-marital affair he had been having. “After being married for over 37 years, I showed extremely poor judgment by engaging in an extramarital affair,” Petraeus said in his letter to President Obama. “Such behavior is unacceptable, both as a husband and as the leader of an organization such as ours.” Petraeus, who had a distinguished...

    The Unreal Ronald Kessler by: M. Stanton Evans, May 06, 2008 Herewith a letter sent to The Wall Street Journal a week ago in response to the recent anti-McCarthy article by Ronald Kessler....(snip)I have held off on circulating this letter until The Wall Street Journal had ample chance to run it....(snip) Like many other critics of Joe McCarthy, Ronald Kessler would be more persuasive if he knew something of the subject. Kessler’s Journal essay ("The Real Joe McCarthy," April 22), attacking the Wisconsin senator and taking a sidewise shot at my recent book about him, is an odd amalgam of...

    In his new book about first lady Laura Bush, author Ronald Kessler shreds claims by biographer Kitty Kelley about Laura’s marijuana use. In her book "The Family: The Real Story of the Bush Dynasty” – published during President Bush’s re-election campaign – Kelley wrote that while at Southern Methodist University, Laura had been known "as a go-to girl for dime bags of marijuana. ‘She not only smoked dope,’ said Robert Nash, a supposed friend of many in Laura’s SMU class, ‘but she sold dope.’” But Kessler – whose biography "Laura Bush: An Intimate Portrait of the First Lady," shot up...

    Book: Laura Bush vs. Hillary ClintonA new book by best-selling author Ronald Kessler – "Laura Bush: An Intimate Portrait" – has Hillary Clinton supporters hopping mad as it strips off the veneer of Sen. Clinton's image as first lady. Kessler's book hadn't even hit bookstores – it's released Tuesday – when the pro-Clinton magazine Vanity Fair did a pre-emptive strike on the book – attacking it as a "valentine" to Mrs. Bush with what VF claimed were "fluffball quotes" and "dubious factoids." Clinton allies have reason to be angry with Kessler. His White House tell-all paints an extremely unflattering portrait...

    First Lady 'is White House power broker' By Philip Sherwell in Washington (Filed: 26/03/2006) Laura Bush plays a much greater role in shaping White House policy, appointments and even budgets than previously acknowledged. Mrs Bush, 59, has stayed largely in the background for the past five years. White House advisers have portrayed her as the "non-Hillary" - a reference to her predecessor, Mrs Clinton, who made no secret of her interest in public policy during her eight years as First Lady. Laura Bush admits she and her husband discuss appointments But a different picture of the influence the quietly spoken...
