  • Christopher Hitchens on how we haven't seen the back of the Clintons yet

    mirror.co.uk ^ | 5/06/2008 | Christopher Hitchens
    I have detested the Clintons ever since I covered the New Hampshire primary in 1992. The man I saw was not the silver-tongued charmer who seems to have bewitched so many people. Up close, he seemed like a red-cheeked, piggy-eyed bully with a mean streak a mile wide. And when he lied - which he more or less did for a living - he had a hard-faced little spouse to step into the TV studios to cover up for him. This woman put up with A LOT from Bill over the years but could always tell herself it was worth...
  • His and Her Finances (The Clintons)

    Stonewalling and secrecy helped Bill and Hillary Clinton win the White House without a thorough enough vetting in 1992. Now they're trying to do it again, this time by not disclosing either their income tax returns or the donor list for the Clinton Foundation. All of this has become the target of greater attention since Mrs. Clinton loaned her struggling campaign $5 million last month. She waited until after the crucial Super Tuesday voting to disclose this news, and initially described the loan as "my money." Campaign spokesman Howard Wolfson then clarified that the cash had come from Mrs. Clinton's...

    In the 1920s, the Brooklyn Dodgers finished in sixth place seven times in eight years. Late in that unfortunate period, a droll sportswriter, noting the team's listless play, wrote, "Overconfidence may yet cost Brooklyn sixth place." Hillary Clinton's campaign did not display overconfidence when it directed the recent fusillade at Barack Obama. Her campaign's rhetorical megatonnage was in response to a prominent Obama contributor saying rude things about her. Her overreaction was one of several developments that have clarified the Democratic contest. Bill Clinton has said, regarding presidential candidates, that Republicans like to fall in line and Democrats like to...

    What kind of president will Sen. Hillary Clinton make? Giving her ethical failings, I realize this is a disturbing thought, but we must consider it as Clinton remains the odds-on favorite to win the Democratic nomination for President in 2008. The way I figure it, with the Clintons, past is prologue. Bill Clinton’s unfinished illicit business as president will be Hillary’s to take up if elected. That’s why Judicial Watch’s investigations team has been inspecting the newly released Clinton Presidential Library records. (We don’t endorse or oppose candidates, but it is part of educational and corruption-fighting mission to see the...

    THE 'MUNICH' ALLUSION:THE DANGER OF SPIELBERG AND THE AMERICAN LEFT by Mia T, January 4, 2006 Funny that the Movie is called "Munich" since, until about 20 years ago, the very word "Munich" was a synonym for appeasement of evil-doers and moral equivalency, the result of Chamberlain's famous "scrap of paper" in which Hitler promised, in Chamberlain's words, "Peace in our time." Is Speilberg aware of the background of "Munich? --cookcounty unich,' Steven Spielberg's new movie, is less about Golda Meir avenging the 1972 Munich massacre than it is about George Bush waging the War on Terror,...

By John Heilemann Bill and Hillary Clinton have never been modest in the scope of their ambitions, nor shy in pursuing them. And so it comes as no surprise to find the once and (aspiring) future presidents fast emerging as two of the dominant figures in the aftermath of Katrina. Here you have an event of possibly epic political consequences, a mirror-image 9/11. And here you have the preeminent power couple in the...

    It's always shocking when the left unmasks itself it's usually very brief but when it happens not only can't you turn away, it's actually important that you don't. While it would seem impossible, the left has found a new low, this time courtesy of both the Washington Post and the Los Angeles Times. On the same day, both newspapers published bizarre attacks on the most basic values of personal appearance and physical health of the president and those he supports. It's the newest indication of how frustrated and frenzied the left has grown in the face of an America...

    Recently, NewsMax pundit John LeBoutillier chatted with Ed Klein, the author of the upcoming book "The Truth About Hillary: What She Knew, When She Knew It, and How Far She'll Go to Become President." For the first time, NewsMax can reveal details of what is inside "The Truth About Hillary," which will be excerpted in the next edition of Vanity Fair, due out June 8. John tells NewsMax's Insider Report: "It is safe to say that none of the dozens of biographies of Hillary Clinton have ever been as well-researched as this one. Klein talked to almost 100 people close...

    Due to the source, if this post is not an allowable, I apologize. Peter Paul is a step closer to getting Bill and Hillary Clinton into court to face charges of fraud and conspiracy. A California Superior Court judge on Wednesday rejected the Clintons' request to have Peter's lawsuit against them dismissed. Remember that Peter first brought the lawsuit in 2001 after then-President Clinton backed out of a business relationship with him. Bill and Hillary Clinton induced Peter to spend nearly $2 million to produce in August 2000 a Hollywood tribute to honor President Clinton and to help raise funds...
  • Gore's Endorsement Slaps Bill & Hillary

    While the press is focusing on Al Gore's endorsement as a slap in the face to the ever-so-loyal Joe Lieberman, the real story is about Gore's real target: Bill and Hillary Clinton. Gore is expected to endorse Dean in Harlem, of all places, the adopted home of Hillary and Bill, where the former president's office is situated. Clearly, Gore knows that Bill and Hillary are trying to stop Howard Dean. And Dean has made no bones that he'll fire DNC Chief Terry McAuliffe, handpicked by the Clintons. It's also no secret that the Clintons urged Wesley Clark to run in...

    Franken, Streisand to Play Clintons in CBS 'Biopic' (2003-10-21) -- In a surprise announcement today, CBS Chairman Les Moonves said his network's movie "The Reagans" will be followed by another presidential biopic, "The Clintons." Shooting has already commenced on a script that presents "a balanced view" of the Clinton years, similar to the unbiased presentation of Ronald and Nancy Reagan described in today's New York Times. Both biopics will run on CBS during the November ratings sweeps. Al Franken and Barbra Streisand will star as The Clintons, with Janeane Garofalo as Chelsea and Sean Penn, in a whimsical role, as...

    The folks at CBS apparently hate Ronald Reagan so much that they're willing to go to any length to trash his legacy - even if it means fabricating events, making up quotes and imagining conduct that Reagan administration insiders say never took place. Too bad for the Tiffany network that decision-makers there are so agenda driven that they'd pass over a far more juicy story; where CBS writers wouldn't have to fabricate a single scene. Never mind Ron and Nancy. How about a movie depicting the real-life goings on behind the scenes at Bill and Hillary's White House - based...

    Aprs Moi, Le Deluge: How Clinton Left Ticking Terror Time Bombs For Bush To Discover From: Off With Their Heads - Traitors, Crooks & Obstructionists In American Politics, Media, Business by Dick Morris As King Louis XV lay dying, he ruminated about the state of the pre-revolutionary French kingdom his son would soon inherit. Every-where he looked, he saw peril-the anger of the peasants, the arrogance of the nobility, the unfairness of the tax system. Sadly, he reflected that the young man who would become Louis XVI faced tough times. Old King Louis may not have known that his son...

    <p>Yes, she's running for president. Is that good for the Democrats?</p> <p>There is not much mystery about the political ambition or political strategy of Hillary Rodham Clinton. She wants to be president. She ran for senator in New York in 2000 because the job would make her a more plausible candidate for president and because she preferred being a senator to being a former first lady. She journeyed methodically to all 62 counties in New York on a "listening tour" and learned about the special problems of upstate New York. Upstaters, like most Americans, love to be visited by celebrities, and her travels enabled her--as similar travels enabled Robert Kennedy in 1964--to win a near-majority in usually Republican upstate, which, together with her big majority in Democratic New York City, resulted in a solid statewide victory.</p>
  • Christmas at the White House

    The comedian George Carlin used to do this sketch about the seven words that could never be said on television. The sketch was adored by sniggering adolescents of all ages, but is now sadly obsolete thanks to HBO, the words on Carlins list are routinely broadcast. Now we have different taboos, and high atop the list is the ban on the word Christmas. So it took some nerve for President Bush to give the speech he did at the lighting of the National Tree on the Ellipse Thursday evening: With the lighting of the National Christmas Tree, we observe...

But in the chilly dawn that followed Tuesdays crushing election defeats, Democrats have begun to open their eyes to the devils bargain they made with Bill and Hillary Clinton. Trailing clouds of self-glorification, Bill had swept across Florida on the weekend before the vote to redeem the sagging campaign of Bill McBride. Slick Willys magic wand had lost its potency, however, and McBride went down in flames. In the end he drew only the same lame 43 percent of the...

    Hillary Rodham Clinton, as a New York State Senator,now comes under this fancy "Congressional Retirement and Staffing Plan," which means that even if she never gets re-elected, she STILL receives her Congressional salary until she dies. If Bill outlives her, he then inherits HER salary until HE dies. He is already getting his Presidential salary until he dies. If Hillary outlives Bill, she also gets HIS salary until she dies. Guess who pays for that? WE DO! It's common knowledge that in order for her to establish NY residency, they purchased a million dollar-plus house in upscale Chappaqua, New York....
