  • Two Texans Vie For Iowa - [Cruz]

    U.S. News and World Report ^ | April 27, 2015 | 5:00 a.m. EDT | David Catanese
    For the two Texans eyeing the presidency, Iowa is king. Following this weekend's trip to the Faith & Freedom Coalition forum, Sen. Ted Cruz and Gov. Rick Perry have logged 13 trips a piece to the state since 2013, outpacing every other Republican White House aspirant, according to the U.S. News Presidential Tracker. The repeated trips demonstrate the importance of the state to both Cruz and Perry, who are both vying for the evangelical voters who dominate caucuses. It shouldn't be a surprise that the two past caucus winners – former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee and former Pennsylvania Sen. Rick...

    How do you know that a Democrat has found him or herself embroiled in a particularly devastating scandal? When the press begins to ask when the Republicans will begin “overplaying” their hands. This weekend, you could feel the ground beginning to fall out from beneath Hillary Clinton’s supporters as members of the reporting and commentary classes began to express their doubts about the former secretary of state’s ethics. Among some prominent members of the media who are generally not predisposed to dismiss the Democratic candidate in a presidential race, the Clinton Foundation’s shady fundraising practices and the former secretary’s...

    Richard Grenell, an American media commentator and the longest serving U.S. Spokesman at the United Nations, said that, revelations unveiled by Breitbart Senior editor Peter Schweizer in his bombshell book Clinton Cash were “actually quite shocking.” In a spellbinding week of interviews, media reports, and articles about the book, New York Times, Washington Post, Reuters and Fox News exposed that the Clinton Foundation was receiving huge amounts of cash from foreign governments, while Hillary was the acting Secretary of State. Grenell, an eight year state department veteran, told Breitbart News Sunday guest host, senior writer, Matthew Boyle, that the state...

    In a speech last week, Hillary Clinton lamented that too many women are supposedly denied abortions. The Democratic presidential candidate came under fire for that pro-abortion comment, but she also is drawing widespread condemnation for another remark in the speech. The comment has Hillary Clinton essentially saying that Christians must be forced to change their religious views to accommodate abortions.“Far too many women are still denied critical access to reproductive health care and safe childbirth. All the laws we’ve passed don’t count for much if they’re not enforced,” Clinton said, using the euphemism for abortion.“Rights have to exist in practice...

    The former public face of Bill Clinton’s White House—and current host of ABC News’ This Week—George Stephanopoulos was floored as two prominent journalists and the Republican Speaker of the House from his Clinton days, Newt Gingrich, laid out for him just how bad the “Clinton Cash” book is for his old bosses. During the show’s roundtable panel after Clinton Cash author Peter Schweizer appeared on the show for a lengthy interview, Stephanopoulos teamed with Democratic strategist Donna Brazile in an attempt to discredit Schweizer. But it started with Stephanopoulos making a shocking admission: Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign wouldn’t send out...

    Peter Schweizer’s book will finish off doomed Clinton campaign. Who else do Dems have? Honestly, it shouldn’t be a surprise that Hillary Clinton’s 2016 campaign won’t go any further than — if it even gets as far as — her ill-fated 2008 attempt at returning to the White House. After all, Clinton isn’t a more attractive candidate now than she was then, and after two terms of a failed Democrat president one would think it would require a candidate with real political skill to keep a Democrat installed at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue. Clinton, unlike her glib husband, has no such...

    Kudos to TheDC’s Kerry Picket for spotting the significance of this Hillary Clinton quote: “Laws [about reproductive health care and safe childbirth] have to be backed up with resources and political will,” Clinton said. “And deep-seated cultural codes, religious beliefs and structural biases have to be changed.” If one is to assume that “reproductive health care” rights are a euphemism for abortion (a fairly safe assumption), then this is quite telling. Maybe it’s because she was speaking to a friendly audience (at the Women in The World Summit), but this honest appraisal is a reminder that politics are downstream from...

     passage from Ernest  Hemingway fits the moment. In “The Sun Also  Rises,” one character asks,  “How did you go bankrupt?” and another responds: “Two ways. Gradually, then suddenly.” The exchange captures Hillary Clinton’s red alert. She’s been going politically bankrupt for a long time, and now faces the prospect of sudden collapse. If she’s got a winning defense, she better be quick about it. The ghosts of scandals past are gaining on her and time is not on her side. The compelling claims that she and Bill Clinton sold favors while she was secretary of state for tens of millions...

On 2013 tax forms, most recent available, they claim $30 million on payroll/employee benefits; $8.7 million in rent/office expenses; $9.2 million on “conferences, conventions and meetings”; $8 million on fund-raising; and nearly $8.5 million on travel. Significantly, none of the Clintons are listed on the payroll, except for first-class flights paid for by the Foundation.

    The union looking to organize workers at Boeing's South Carolina plant has put its plans in a holding pattern, claiming workers are so opposed to signing up that they chased labor leaders off their porches at gunpoint. The North Charleston plant, which opened in the right-to-work state four years ago and builds fuselages for 747s and 787s, employs about 7,500 workers. The International Association of Machinists and Aerospace Workers had been trying to build support for a vote this week on unionizing 3,175 production and maintenance workers, but called off the vote days before it was to happen.

Only after an unscheduled meeting between Clinton, Valerie Jarrett, Barack Obama, and Susan Rice took place did the White House acknowledge the president and Mrs. Clinton took time to “catch up” and discuss a “range of topics.”

    Breitbart ^ | 18 Apr 2015 | by KATIE MCHUGH
    Texas Republican Sen. Ted Cruz ripped into the Obama administration and Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton on Saturday, drawing applause for his red-meat remarks. “I could have sworn I had seen Hillary’s Scooby Doo van outside, but then I realized it couldn’t possibly be that,” Cruz joked. “Because I’m pretty sure y’all don’t have any foreign nations paying speakers, right?” Cruz mocked Democrats’ shallow presidential bench while praising the diverse Republican field. “Has this not been an incredible array of strong, conservative leaders for two solid days? What testament for the desire of Americans — we want something new. We...
  • Bob Schieffer to Rubio: As president, would you sign immigration bill you helped pass in the Senate?

    Rubio’s right that this is a hypothetical and that nothing like the Gang of Eight bill could pass the House right now. But Mickey Kaus is right that it’s a darned fine gotcha, a way to gauge how far Rubio’s willing to go in renouncing his signature “achievement” as a senator. What if Rubio defeated Hillary next year and the party’s leadership decided to capitalize by doing something splashy to show Latino voters that the new, Rubio-led GOP was ready to engage them like never before? A bill like the Gang of Eight bill getting past the House isn’t...
  • Hillary at meeting with economists: We need to “topple” the wealthiest one percent

    The first thing I thought of while reading this was Romney trying to impress CPAC a few years ago by calling himself “severely” conservative. Coming from a committed populist ideologue like Elizabeth Warren, this might sound ominous. Coming from Hillary, it reeks of someone trying way, way too hard to sound like they’re part of the tribe. In her 2008 campaign, Mrs. Clinton touted the prosperity of the 1990s. Today, the trade deals, Wall Street deregulation, and deficit reduction Mr. Clinton oversaw are often blamed as contributing to the current divide between a tiny sliver of the wealthiest and...

    This won’t surprise longtime Atlas readers. Atlas reported this story of Hillary’s lesbian affair with Huma Abedin when it was all the NYC gay scenesters could talk about back in 2007 — here and here.  Anthony Weiner is a beard — a very necessary cover when rumors of Huma and Hillary’s love affair were rife. Which is why Huma didn’t give a fig when Weiner was texting his w******r to scores of college girls. Or when Bill was raping Juanita Broaddrick or inserting cigars into Monica Lewinsky’s v***********.
  • Clinton Foundation Spending: ONLY 15% ON CHARITY?

    The Federalist (via Drudge) ^ | March 2, 2015 | Sean Davis
    When anyone contributes to the Clinton Foundation, it actually goes toward fat salaries, administrative bloat, and lavish travel. Between 2009 and 2012, the Clinton Foundation raised over $500 million dollars according to a review of IRS documents by The Federalist (2012, 2011, 2010, 2009, 2008). A measly 15 percent of that, or $75 million, went towards programmatic grants. More than $25 million went to fund travel expenses. Nearly $110 million went toward employee salaries and benefits. And a whopping $290 million during that period — nearly 60 percent of all money raised — was classified merely as “other expenses.” Official...

    On Monday's edition of The Laura Ingraham Show, the nationally-syndicated host talked about an e-mail she received from a friend that got her thinking: what's the difference between declared Republican presidential candidate Sen. Marco Rubio and Sen. Lindsey Graham, who is considering a run. LAURA INGRAHAM: We seem to have a topsy-turvy thing going on in the Republican field, okay? Rubio Is now the darling of the Republican Party. And, look, I’m just going to tell you where I see things. And, I like all these people personally a lot... I like Marco.

    "....This development, perhaps one of if not the biggest of the 2016 presidential campaign so far, comes as Walker has taken a commanding lead in polls in all three of the first GOP primary states: Iowa, New Hampshire, and South Carolina. The reason why this development is so significant is that the two establishment-backed candidates, Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL) and former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush, both have an in-depth understanding of the immigration issue and come down on the side that supports special interests’ desire for a massive increase in legal immigration that hurts American workers. Meanwhile, Sens. Ted Cruz...

    WASHINGTON (MarketWatch) — If the presidential election were held today, it wouldn’t even be close. Hillary Clinton is crushing her potential Republican rivals by double digits in a new CNN/ORC International poll. The Republicans’ best showing is by Florida Sen. Marco Rubio, who trails the former senator and secretary of state by 14 points. Former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush, who hasn’t declared his candidacy yet, lags Clinton by 17 points. Sen. Rand Paul of Kentucky and New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie are each 19 points behind Clinton. Rubio and Paul have declared their candidacies, but Christie hasn’t said he’ll run....

    The New York Times, The Washington Post and Fox News have made exclusive agreements with a conservative author for early access to his opposition research on Hillary Clinton, a move that has confounded members of the Clinton campaign and some reporters. "Clinton Cash: The Untold Story of How and Why Foreign Governments and Businesses Helped Make Bill and Hillary Rich" will debut on May 5. But the Times, the Post and Fox have already made arrangements with author Peter Schweizer to pursue some of the material included in his book, which seeks to draw connections between Clinton Foundation donations and...

    An Egyptian court has sentenced former President Mohammed Morsi to 20 years in jail for ordering the arrest and torture of protesters during his rule. It is the first verdict he has received since his ousting and is one of several trials he faces. Morsi was deposed by the army in July 2013 following mass street protests against his rule.

    Both Sen. Lindsey Graham (S.C.) and New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie are speaking bluntly about entitlement reform, advocating means-testing for Social Security retirement benefits as a way to save the system for those who need it. “These are real ideas,“ Christie said in New Hampshire on Friday. “And, you know, I’ve had a lot of people say, ‘Well, why would you possibly want to suggest those things?’ Because we have to. We have to. And if you want to start a national conversation, let’s start one that matters.” “We’re $18 trillion in debt,” Graham told Fox News Sunday. “Eighty million...
