  • Hillary Fired For “Lying, Unethical Behavior” on Watergate Committee

    Hillary Clinton might have a pretty hefty scandal brewing. It turns when she was an attorney working on the Watergate investigation, she was fired by her supervisor for “lying, unethical behavior.” Jerry Zeifman, who said he is a lifelong Democrat, was a supervisor for 27-year-old Hillary Rodham on the committee. When the investigation was complete, Zeifman said he fired Hillary and refused to give her a recommendation. “Because she was a liar,” Zeifman said. “She was an unethical, dishonest lawyer. She conspired to violate the Constitution, the rules of the House, the rules of the committee and the rules of...

    Pelosi Predicts: If Hillary Runs, 'She Will Win' October 21, 2013 - 4:43 PM By Melanie Hunter ( – House Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.), in appearance on ABC’s “This Week with George Stephanopolous” on Sunday, said Hillary Clinton “will win” the presidency if she runs. “If Hillary Clinton does run, she'll be one of the best prepared people, and she will win, I believe, if she runs. She'll be one of the best prepared people to enter the White House in a long time,” Pelosi said. “She will -- she would be a great president. I would -- it...
  • Germany: Bill Clinton to meet Angela Merkel in Berlin (US Embassy still open for Clintons)

    10/08/2013 1:34:12 PM PDT · by Dagnabitt · 20 replies ^ | Unknown
    Former US president Bill Clinton met with the German Chancellor Angela Merkel in Berlin on Tuesday for an informal interview. Clinton came to Berlin to give a keynote speech at the 47th Annual Meeting of the European Petrochemical Association (EPCA), held at the Intercontinental Hotel between October 6 and 8. More than 2600 delegates attended the forum, mostly CEOs and top-level executives from the 700 companies that comprise the EPCA. Since leaving the White House in 2001 and under the Clinton Foundation, the 42nd president of the United States has been advocating for development aid projects and against climate change.

  • Wonderfully Wasteful : The EPA wants to end coal-fired power plants.

    National Review ^ | 09/24/2013 | The Editors
    The Environmental Protection Agency’s recently announced decision to, in effect, ban the construction of traditional coal-fired power plants in the United States is a non-solution to a hypothetical problem, enacted upon a legal basis that is shaky and an economic basis that is nonexistent. The cost-benefit analysis is almost entirely one-sided: The costs will be very high, and the benefits the EPA hopes to secure will remain out of reach. The EPA is demanding that new U.S. plants that will use coal to generate electricity must meet standards that today are met by no commercial coal-fired plant operating anywhere in...
  • Chris Christie Inducted into CAIR's 'Best List' for Fighting 'Islamophobia'

    The Council on the American Islamic Relations (CAIR) excoriated many of its critics in their "Islamophobia" report, but the group also had a "Best List Inductees" which included New Jersey Governor Chris Christie. CAIR says the list was compiled as a way to recognize those who "deserve recognition for their outstanding contributions to pushing back against Islamophobic trends in 2011 and 2012." The report says Christie is receiving the accolade primarily for his nomination of a Muslim judge and statements in the ensuing controversy: Following Islamophobic criticism of his nomination of Sohail Mohammed as a New Jersey Superior Court judge,...

    Bill Clinton: 'Who cares' how Syria deal developed? By Justin Sink - 09/17/13 09:43 AM ET Former president Bill Clinton dismissed criticism of the Obama Administration's handling of the crisis in Syria, arguing that ultimately there was an "inherent and enduring benefit" to striking a deal with the Assad regime to turn over its chemical weapons. Critics of the administration have said that the deal — which grew out of an offhand remark made by Secretary of State John Kerry at a press conference in London — is evidence that the Obama administration lacks a coherent foreign policy. Others have...

    By DYLAN BYERS | 9/13/13 3:04 PM EDT The Russian newspaper Pravda has tentatively agreed to publish an Op-Ed by Sen. John McCain in which he will attack Russian President Vladimir Putin, according to an exclusive report from Foreign Policy. The piece would serve as a direct response to the New York Times Op-Ed Putin penned earlier this week, in which he criticized President Obama and asserted that the Syrian government was not responsible for a recent chemical weapons attack.

    The heckling came at the end of former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton's speech at the National Constitution Center in Philadelphia which she gave in acceptance for the 2013 Liberty Medal, Tuesday night. In her speech, Hillary kept it bland, largely staying away from controversial issues: Clinton paid lip service to the pressing questions of the day: how the United States should respond to the use of chemical weapons -- the question at stake in Syria -- and how it should balance the need for both liberty and security. But she did not offer any concrete answer on these highly...

    ST. PETERSBURG, Russia — Beset by divisions at home and abroad, President Barack Obama candidly acknowledged deep challenges Friday in pursuing support for a military strike against Syria from international allies and the U.S. Congress. He refused to say whether he might act on his own, a step that could have major implications for the U.S. as well as for the remainder of his presidency. [snip] "I did not put this before Congress just as a political ploy or as symbolism," Obama said, adding that it would be a mistake to talk about any backup strategy before lawmakers vote on...

Russia's sent 6-7 warships in and told him to back off while France scampered and the Brits said 'pass'. All of a sudden now he wants to ask Congress, please.

    On June14, 1982, I watched the leading elements of Britain’s task force march wearily but triumphantly into Port Stanley, as the Argentine forces in the Falkland Islands surrendered. That day, as we can see with painful clarity 31 years later, was the high watermark of British military endeavour since 1945.

    Paul also explained that he had difficulty seeing any American interests in the Syrian conflict. “I can’t see fighting to impose Sharia law in Syria,” Paul said. “I can’t see sending my son to fight with Islamic rebels against Christians. I also can’t see my son going to fight on the same side as al Qaeda.” Under Sharia law, Paul noted, Christians would be persecuted for blasphemy, citing a woman in Pakistan who was jailed for blasphemy after she drank from a cup shared by Muslim workers. “That is not something I want to send our boys and girls to...

    The Obama administration made public its case that Syrian President Bashar al-Assad was responsible for a chemical-weapons attack outside Damascus, bracing Americans for potential strikes in the coming days. President Barack Obama said he hasn't made a decision on military strikes on Syria, even as U.S. forces continued a buildup in the Middle East on Friday and the White House took the rare step of releasing a detailed U.S. intelligence assessment. The U.S. findings, based on intercepted communications, satellite images and human spying, were released to underpin Mr. Obama's assertions that the Assad regime was responsible for the attack, which...

    The New York Times takes down the Clinton Foundation. This could be devastating for Bill and Hillary By Tim Stanley US politics Last updated: August 14th, 2013 Is the New York Times being guest edited by Rush Limbaugh? Today it runs with a fascinating takedown of the Clinton Foundation – that vast vanity project that conservatives are wary of criticising for being seen to attack a body that tries to do good. But the liberal NYT has no such scruples. The killer quote is this: For all of its successes, the Clinton Foundation had become a sprawling concern, supervised by...

    PRESIDENT OBAMA proved himself a great segue artist Friday, as he smoothly glided from his previously unassailable position on the matter of surveillance to his new unassailable position on the matter of surveillance. There is no moral high ground that he does not seek to occupy. As with drones and gay marriage, he seems peeved that we were insufficiently patient with his own private study of the matter. Why won’t the country agree to entrust itself to his fine mind? Yet while Barry is in the thick of it, the air is thick with Hillary. From the sidelines, she is...

    For the first time today, since Anthony Weiner began his campaign for mayor of New York, I thought, wow, this guys acts as though he doesn't even want to win, either that or he's severely delusional. The more I think about it, it makes sense. Yes, we could be witnessing a sad case of someone in the beginning stages of mental illness or a good old fashioned megalomaniac in search for more personal power, but I don't really know. I do know Anthony seems to make a daily habit of making people express anger or contempt at him in public....
