    Watergate reporter Carl Bernstein called out Hillary Clinton on Wednesday for continually blaming a "vast right-wing conspiracy" for her campaign woes. "I think she has to acknowledge she's made some terrible misjudgments and errors, particularly on the server," Bernstein said during an interview on CNN. "The vast right-wing conspiracy didn't put the server in her damn closet. She's going to have to get by this thing, and she's going to have to acknowledge a terrible misjudgment it seems to be here."

    Just as Hillary Clinton braces for yet-another release of her much-discussed State Department emails, the Clinton Library this week released the largest set of records ever—over 43,000 pages—detailing her husband Bill's use of his executive clemency powers while he was president. The long-secret records include new information on some of the late-term pardons and commutations that created controversy, including a pair of pardons that followed intervention of one of Hillary Clinton's brothers. And the release comes as Republican opposition researchers work overtime combing through the background of the former first lady and Secretary of State, whose presidential candidacy faces a...

    Gov. Kasich has a secret. He hides it well as he peddles his plain-spoken, real-deal, son-of-a-mailman sales pitch as a Republican presidential candidate in New Hampshire. The secret is secure with Kasich loyalists. Mr. Kasich is mum about the details, but a left-leaning blog with an emphasis on Ohio and national politics is on the right track. Plunderbund suggests "a scandal begging to be born" is bubbling in the governor's home state. Out-of-state media are oblivious to the disgrace at the Ohio Department of Education. Team Kasich has effectively kept the story under wraps on the campaign trail. [ ]...

    Justice: It's not often that the victims of IRS abuse find satisfaction, but the Tea Party groups mistreated by the tax collector will get a shot. Maybe next will be an audit of the IRS — which apparently hasn't changed its ways. On Tuesday, Day 978 of the unresolved IRS scandal, a federal judge granted class-action status to as many as 300 conservative groups that have been affected by the agency's practice of unduly scrutinizing small-government organizations that sought tax-exempt status but which the IRS saw as dangerous dissidents. U.S. District Court Judge Susan Dlott's ruling also opens the door...

    Fox News ^ | January 14, 2016 | Judge Andrew P. Napolitano
    I have argued for two months that Clinton's legal woes are either grave or worse than grave. That argument has been based on the hard, now public evidence of her failure to safeguard national security secrets and the known manner in which the Department of Justice addresses these failures. The failure to safeguard state secrets is an area of the law in which the federal government has been aggressive to the point of being merciless. State secrets are the product of members of the intelligence community's risking their lives to obtain information. [Snip] The obligation of those to whom state...

Joseph DiGenova, who was appointed by President Ronald Reagan, said the FBI's foundation probe "has reached such a proportion of inquiry that it's starting to sneak out," but that it was sparked months ago by information pulled from Hillary Clinton's private server and from the tax filings of corporations that have donated to the charity. "There are now, I am told, 150 agents working on this case," DiGenova...

    Hillary Clinton's e-mail scandal has been a difficult one for the public to understand and for journalists to explain. But Bob Woodward, the Washington Post reporter who helped uncover Watergate 40 years ago, clarified things a lot on Fox News Sunday today when he said that an e-mail in the most recently released batch shows Hillary trying to "subvert the rules" that she expected others to follow. A few days earlier, Joe DiGenova, a well-respected former district attorney for the District of Columbia, told The Laura Ingraham Show that "there is vitriol of an intense amount developing" in the intelligence...

Every time the media gloms onto one of these Trump-is-doing-politics-wrong-and-it’s-going-to-cost-him stories, I wait for the inevitable result in which the whole issue either has no effect at all on Trump or, as seems more likely, actually helps him. That happens every time. That’s not the moronic part. The moronic part is what I expect will happen next, which is that the political media finally, at long last, smacks itself in the forehead and says, Holy...

    Bill Clinton dismissed Paula Jones in the 1990s as a "floozy" and a "nobody" who was only suing him for sexual harassment in order to have her "moment in the sun," according to an audio diary recorded at the time by one of his closest confidantes. Clinton's friend and biographer, Taylor Branch, took notes on a late-night conversation he had with the president on Oct. 2, 1997, and immediately recorded them into an audio diary. The recordings were recently obtained by the Washington Free Beacon. According to Branch's diary, Clinton discussed the pending sexual harassment lawsuit brought against him by...

In July 2002, Rubio sent a letter on his official statehouse stationery to the Florida Division of Real Estate, recommending Orlando Cicilia "for licensure without reservation."

    Climate: Want to know the latest global warming news? Don't bother looking in U.S. media. They can't be bothered with stories that contradict the man-made climate change narrative. But the truth is out there. Let's start with a new paper from NASA — a distinctly American organization — that was covered by the British Express. The newspaper tells us that our space program has "found the Earth has cooled in areas of heavy industrialization where more trees have been lost and more fossil fuel burning takes place." This is, of course, the opposite of what we've been told for decades.

    With Thanksgiving having come and gone, we are now solidly into the Christmas season. Two stories that reveal Hollywood's attitude about Christmas in painful detail recently caught my attention. The first was an article in the L.A. Times about the 50th anniversary of "A Charlie Brown Christmas." It is now a classic; one of the most beloved of all broadcast television Christmas specials. Yet those in charge of its production at the time thought it was going to be a dismal failure. Why? Because cartoonist and author Charles M.

    A Fiorina spokesperson denied wrongdoing. Republican presidential candidate Carly Fiorina is known for her aggressive views on Iran, as well as her position as the former CEO of Hewlett Packard (HP). But, how many people know that HP products were sold in Iran during her time as CEO, in spite of U.S. sanctions that were in place? -snip- From 1999-2004, during Fiorinas time as CEO, the companys lobbyists consistently sought unilateral sanctions reform legislation. The issue of HP products being sold in Iran was brought up during Fiorinas 2010 run for a U.S. Senate seat in California. A Fiorina spokesperson...

    Carly Fiorina brings a Texas ranching legacy to the presidential campaign. And one Texas rancher has come forth to help. Although shes known more as a California Republican, Fiorina was born in Austin to the Sneed family, Texans since 1839 and known for oil, cattle ranching, cotton farming and for an early 20th-century love-triangle feud and scandal. In the 1960s, she grew up spending summers with her grandparents in a historic home in Calvert, between Waco and Bryan. ~snip~ In a 2003 Houston speech, Fiorina said, We had a little bit of cattle in our family, a little bit of...

    Over the past dozen years, Hewlett-Packard has sold hundreds of millions of dollars worth of printers and other products to Iran through a Middle East distributor, sidestepping a U.S. ban on trade with the country. Now the person who headed HP for much of that time, Carly Fiorina, is ramping up to run for U.S. Senate. And questions are emerging about what Fiorina knew about HP's growing presence in Iran during her six-year tenure at the Silicon Valley firm from 1999 to 2005. With Iran drawing condemnation abroad for its suspected pursuit of nuclear weapons and crackdown on government dissidents,...

    The scandal surrounding US intelligence reports on ISIS just hit President Barack Obama's inner circle. James Clapper, America's top spy, is reportedly in "frequent and unusual contact" with the military officer who is suspected of allowing US reports on ISIS to be altered to fit the administration's official line, Spencer Ackerman at The Guardian reports. "In communications, Clapper, who is far more senior than Grove, is said to tell Grove how the war looks from his vantage point, and question Grove about Central Commands assessments," Ackerman writes. "Such a situation could place inherent pressure on a subordinate, sources said." Clapper,...

    For nearly a quarter-century, Hillary Rodham Clinton has played an outsized role in the nations consciousness as an advocate and a political survivor. Her presidential campaigns favorite way to describe her is as a fighter. But something surprising has emerged in public opinion about the former first lady, senator and secretary of state. Asked to name something tangible that Clinton has actually accomplished, many voters come up blank. In polls and focus groups, Republicans are sensing a vulnerability in Clintons record that could compound the difficulties she is facing with the controversy over her decision as secretary of state to...

    John Heilemann has saluted his next President and Commander-in-Chief: Hillary Clinton. On today's With All Due Respect, commenting on Hillary's remarks on the Iran deal at the Brookings Institution and Donald Trump and Ted Cruz's comments at a rally, Heilemann declared "there is exactly one potential president in that group, and that president is Hillary Rodham Clinton . . . Everything she said sounded like Commander-in-Chief. The other two sounded like showboating clowns." View the video here.

    Hillary Clintons sudden reversal on whether or not she would apologize for using a private email server while Secretary of State seemed inexplicable; on Friday she refused to apologize in an interview with MSNBCs Andrea Mitchell, but by Tuesday was apologizing to ABCs David Muir. But The New York Times reported Wednesday on the impetus for the change; Clinton watched a video of a focus group that reacted negatively to her email rhetoric.

    The U.S. State Department plans to move about 50 workers into temporary jobs to bolster the office sifting through Hillary Clinton's emails and grappling with a vast backlog of other requests for information to be declassified, officials said on Tuesday. The move illustrates the huge administrative burden caused by Clinton's decision to use a private email address for official communications as secretary of state and a judge's ruling in a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) lawsuit that they be released. Clinton on Tuesday for the first time apologized for her use of private email, telling ABC News: "That was a...

    The United Nations body that oversees greenhouse gas reductions is reeling from another cap-and-trade scandal that may have put 600 million tons of carbon emissions into the atmosphere — roughly speaking, the annual CO2 output of Canada or Britain — while the emissions were ostensibly suppressed, according to an independent study. In the process, the fraudsters, largely in Russia and Ukraine, were likely able to transfer credits for more than 400 million tons of their apparently bogus greenhouse savings by April 2015 into Europe's commercial carbon trading system — the largest in the world — thereby undermining that continent's ambitious...

    Hillary Clinton turned to Facebook Tuesday night to apologize for using a private email server to conduct official government business during her tenure as secretary of state. Yes, I should have used two email addresses, one for personal matters and one for my work at the State Department. Not doing so was a mistake. Im sorry about it, and I take full responsibility, Clinton wrote. The extended note came hours after she offered up a four-word apology in an interview with ABC News. Just yesterday, Clinton had told the Associated Press an apology was not necessary because what I did...
