    Excellent advice but surely a total buzzkill for leftists, for whom the big gun-control push is at least as much a cultural struggle as it is a serious attempt to reduce mass shootings. Tightening the laws on background checks and banning high-capacity magazines might not stop future Sandy Hooks or Columbines but it will potentially force the yokels to behave in a bit more civilized fashion. Like they do in, say, Chicago.Next he’ll be telling them not to use kids as props for their big gun-grab rituals. I thought this guy was supposed to be fun. “Do not patronize the...

  • ll Clinton: Gingrich Opposed Bill That Led To Balanced Budgets

    Bill Clinton: Gingrich Opposed Bill That Led To Balanced Budgets December 20, 2011 It’s a claim that has been central to Newt Gingrich’s presidential campaign: that he “balanced the budget for four straight years” when he was speaker of the U.S. House of Representatives in the 1990s. Now former President Clinton is calling Gingrich out, saying it’s “not really” accurate for Gingrich to take the credit for all those balanced budgets. “I think he did work with me to pass some good budgets,” Clinton said Tuesday in an interview with NBC’s Ann Curry. “…I had a decent working relationship with...

    Bill Clinton is pretty content nowadays. He's rich, his initiative is soaring, the White House needs him. This is happiness. But never underestimate his love for acting on ancient grudges, as he did with sex pariah John Edwards in 2008. In a lengthy profile of Clinton and how his life is perfect now, Politico slips in this nugget about how Clinton, via his longtime personal aide Doug Band, reacted to John Edwards' sad plea for support following the outing of his affair with Rielle Hunter in 2008: In 2008, John Edwards called, seeking a statement of support from Clinton...

    (Cairo, Egypt) -- Former President Bill Clinton has weighed in on the controversy surrounding a mosque and Islamic community center set to be built blocks from Ground Zero in New York. Speaking yesterday in Cairo, Egypt, Clinton said the mosque should be dedicated to the 60 Muslims who were killed in the 9-11 attacks. Clinton also told the American Chamber of Commerce in Cairo that if the Israeli-Palestinian conflict were to finally be solved, much of the motivation for terrorism around the world would come to an end.

    he election of George H.W. Bush in 1988 guaranteed some stability in dealing with major foreign policy issues on the horizon. The Reagan administration’s attempts to drown the communist world with big ideas and a massive defense spending increase set the table for the fall of Soviet Russia in the early 1990s. The Bush administration oversaw the defeat of communism and ushered the new Russian state, led by Mikhael Gorbachev, into a capitalist era. This was the major global change that occurred at this point but Bush and his advisors were more integral to other conflicts throughout the world.

    Bill Clinton’s picture is again a fixture on cable news. Republicans are sternly demanding a special prosecutor. And legal commentators are bickering over the finer points of federal criminal statutes on bribery and graft. It feels like 1997—but it’s 2010. And Barack Obama can’t be happy. The White House’s confirmation Friday that it enlisted former President Bill Clinton in an effort to get Rep. Joe Sestak out of the Pennsylvania Senate primary has sent the regular players in Washington’s scandal industry to their battle stations – to pick over the very sort of insider special dealing that Obama had promised...
