  • A lose-lose choice for Hillary Clinton

    05/04/2015 2:30:40 AM PDT · by Din Maker · 8 replies
    The big threat to Hillary Clinton’s campaign isn’t coming from a competitor. It’s coming from an issue. And it’s coming now, long before the first primary. Will she be for or against giving President Barack Obama fast-track authority to negotiate trade deals? Fast track gives a president the power to make trade deals that cannot be amended by Congress. All Congress can do is accept or reject the agreement. Other countries, say fast-track supporters, won’t negotiate with Washington if they know that Congress can amend any deal they agree to. Obama’s problem is with Democrats. They are horrified by the...

    BOSTON (AP) — Former U.S. Rep. Bob Inglis received the John F. Kennedy Profile in Courage Award on Sunday for reversing his position on climate change despite the predictable political fallout that helped cost the South Carolina Republican his seat in Congress. Kennedy's grandson, Jack Schlossberg, presented the award to Inglis on Sunday at the JFK Library in Boston."My grandfather's legacy is kept alive by Bob's courageous decision to sacrifice his political career to demand action on the issue that will shape life on Earth for generations to come," said Schlossberg, son of Caroline Kennedy and Edwin Schlossberg.

    "It's time to end the era of mass incarceration," Hillary Clinton proclaimed in a scheduled criminal-justice speech Wednesday that gave her the opportunity to address sentencing reform in the context of the troubles in Baltimore. It was a lukewarm effort in keeping with Hillaryland rules. Say as little as possible. Offend no interest group. Let handlers alert the media that the candidate is engaging in a big policy shift that is bound to attract young voters, even if the big policy shift leaves out specific positions on, say, marijuana legalization or the death penalty. I don't think it was smart...

    Schweizer’s book painstakingly follows the money to such characters as Canadian mining tycoon Frank Giustra, a $31.3M donor to the Clinton Foundation, who chauffeured Bill on his private jet. The details of the sordid Clinton operation vary, but the M.O. is fairly consistent: One: Dodgy rich businessman, often a foreigner with a mega-deal in some corrupt country, possibly run by a dictator, writes a check that buys him the status of friend of Bill Clinton (FOB). The check is payable to the Clinton Foundation, or to Bill himself, as an honorarium for a meaningless idealistic speech that is essentially Bill...

    COLUMBIA, S.C. (AP) — Some South Carolina law enforcement agencies are offering their parking lots as a safe place to finalize deals made on Craigslist and other online marketplaces. Officers say they won't get involved in the deals. But officials hope that, by doing the transactions at a police station or sheriff's department, people will be less likely to cut a shady deal — or get violent. At least two people have been killed in South Carolina when online transactions went wrong.

    Americans appear to be suspicious of Hillary Rodham Clinton’s honesty, and even many Democrats are only lukewarm about her presidential candidacy, according to a new Associated Press-GfK poll. Is she strong and decisive? Yes, say a majority of people. But inspiring and likable? Only a minority think so. Clinton’s struggles to explain her email practices while in government, along with questions about the Clinton Foundation and Republican criticism of her openness, wealth and trustworthiness seem to have struck a nerve in the public’s perception of the dominant Democratic figure in the 2016 campaign. In the survey, 61 percent said “honest”...

    Her campaign barely three weeks old, Hillary Clinton already has been attacked by Republicans on everything from donations to her family’s charitable foundation, to her tenure as secretary of state and her ties to Wall Street. But her rivals, and the political action committees that support them, are treading more carefully on one incendiary subject: her age . If elected in November 2016, Clinton would be, at 69, the second-oldest person to take the presidential oath for the first time, behind only Ronald Reagan, who turned 70 weeks after being sworn into office in 1981. Questions of health and fitness...

She did receive a celebrity endorsement, but, alas, it came from pornographer Larry Flynt, and as Bloomberg’s John Heilemann observes, it “beggars belief that she and her team will be issuing any press releases touting the latest bold-faced name to clamber aboard her bandwagon.” A new Associated Press-GfK poll finds Americans suspicious of Clinton’s honesty, and even many Democrats are only lukewarm about her presidential candidacy.

The measure got a high-level Democratic opponent on Thursday with Hillary Clinton's campaign weighing in, calling it a move to "overrule the Democratic process" in a statement to CNN.

These are real,” Chafee said.

This was designed to avoid potential conflicts of interest with her new government role.

Yet that's what Democrats have done by overwhelmingly bowing to Hillary Clinton's vaunted ambition to be the next president of the United States.

Um, is this the right time for Hillary to be talking about “unaccountable money”?

    Specific proposals to end the appalling violence in Syria, Yemen, and territories controlled by the Islamic State group are scarce in the nascent presidential campaign. That is about to change. Republican Sen. Lindsey Graham of South Carolina -- who tells Yahoo Finance he’s “92-and-a-half percent sure” he’s running for president -- wants to send U.S. troops back to the world’s most volatile region to stamp out vicious terrorism and remove Syrian President Bashar al-Assad. “Assad has to go,” he says in the video above. “We’re going to have to send some of our soldiers back into the Middle East.”

    The South Carolina Conservative ^ | April 28, 2015 | Javan Browder
    The past week was a very good one for Ted Cruz in South Carolina, as he swept the straw polls at four bi-annual Republican county conventions, and one county GOP Executive Committee bi-monthly meeting. The first came as Cruz won the Anderson County GOP convention straw poll as follows: Cruz 27%, Walker 25%, Rubio 15%, Huckabee 9%, Graham and Perry 6% each, Santorum 5%, Bush, Paul and Carson 1% each. But the biggest prizes came for Cruz as he won Greenville, Spartanburg and Aiken GOP convention straw polls all on the same day as follows: Greenville: Cruz 28%, Walker 22%, Carson 8.5%, Rubio...

    The Catholic Thing ^ | April 27, 2015 | Robert Royal
    Several years ago I visited a synagogue in Istanbul, one of the few remaining in all of Turkey. It had been firebombed a few weeks earlier – in response to some recent incident between Israelis and Palestinians. But because of security and a thick outer wall, it was relatively unharmed. Inside, ten elderly, eccentric Jewish Turks were gathered, the bare number needed for a minyan. We spoke for a short while about what it was to live as a religious minority in a big Muslim country. But I will never forget the atmosphere in that tiny congregation – wary, but...

    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...
  • Does Hillary Clinton have a 'trustworthiness' problem?

    Chistian Science Monitor ^ | April 27, 2015 | Peter Grier
    Does Hillary Clinton have a trustworthiness problem? We ask the question in that manner because we’re talking here about voter perception of Mrs. Clinton more than our judgment of her character per se. Reports of the appearance of conflicts of interest between her role as secretary of State and foreign donations to her family foundation have generated lots of headlines in recent days. It’s possible that those reports are already taking a toll on her image. Clintonworld is surely worried that might happen. On Sunday, the Clinton Foundation hit back with a lengthy rebuttal of some of the allegations of...

    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...

    Politicus USA - Real Liberal Politics ^ | April 26, 2015 | Dennis S.
    Oh Lord: An overgrowth of Republican presidential candidate kudzu is blanketing South Carolina these days. The Palmetto state appears to be an imperative stopover for anybody who has even remotely thought about entering the 2016 Republican presidential primary. And there is a bunch of anybody’s. The first big boy appearance in the Upstate was the redoubtable radical, Canadian citizenship renouncing, Ted Cruz. Cruz is so far out there that those attending his speaking engagements are encouraged to show up in full space regalia. Cruz considers himself to be God’s candidate. To that end, he announced his intentions to run at...

    Breitbart Big Journalism ^ | 26 Apr 2015 | Written by Matthew Boyle
    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...
