Pay-to-play at Hillary’s State Department
The more we see of Hillary Clinton’s private emails the more corrupt and inept she is revealed to be. Clinton, is seems, attempted to use US foreign policy as a piggy-bank for her cronies and friends, paralleling the way she and her husband used American foreign policy to enrich themselves. Via The New York Times: While advising Mrs. Clinton on Libya, Mr. Blumenthal, who had | Read More »
Have we reached Peak Hillary?
Perhaps the best sign that Hillary Clinton’s campaign has finally begun to sink under the damage and weight inflicted by non-stop scandals, lies, and ineptitude comes from popular culture. Katherine Heigl is leaving network TV again. NBC has axed State of Affairs, her Monday night D.C. political thriller. Despite having a huge lead-in from The Voice, State only averaged 8 million viewers and a 1.9 rating | Read More »
Democrat presidential field gets older, whiter and less masculine

Bernie Sanders will announce his candidacy for the Democratic presidential nomination on Thursday.

Clinton Foundation called a slush fund by charity monitor
Via the NY Post: “It seems like the Clinton Foundation operates as a slush fund for the Clintons,” said Bill Allison, a senior fellow at the Sunlight Foundation, a government watchdog group where progressive Democrat and Fordham Law professor Zephyr Teachout was once an organizing director. In fact, the finances are so bad that one major charity rating group, Charity Navigator, refuses to give the | Read More »
Bill Clinton sold us to the ChiComs; Hillary sold us to the Russians
I owe the Obama administration an apology. Since the early days of 2009, I’ve attributed our Russia policy to naivete. To that romance which those who sat at the feet of Old School commies feel for the Worker’s Paradise of the former USSR. Sure, there was garden variety incompetence and intellectual bankruptcy but when you staff you administration with academics that is baked in. And, | Read More »
Doddering grandma forgets traffic laws and parks in handicap space
This is straight from the “rules are for little people” school of governance. The school that teaches you how to make $100,ooo over night trading in agricultural commodities and that it’s fine to take multi-million dollar contributions from foreign governments in exchange for policy concessions. On a campaign stop, somewhere in flyover country Hillary Clinton’s campaign van (haven’t heard if it has an astro-turf floor | Read More »
Hillary Clinton’s astroturfed grandparents
None of us were surprised when the “plain folks” meeting Hillary Clinton on the trail turned out to be Democrat activists. That’s who she is. She doensn’t know anyone but Democrat operatives, or, put another way, the only people who will put up with this nasty self-aggrandizing baggage are Democrat operatives. There’s nothing like a genuine listening tour, randomly meeting everyday folks. pic.twitter.com/vK9b1vEtGl — WH | Read More »
Slate: Obama’s pristine and scandal free reign is his gift to Hillary
Sometimes your read stuff and do a double take because you just can’t believe it. For instance: Obama’s Gift to Hillary Clinton No modern-day president has left his potential successor a less scandal-plagued legacy than Barack Obama. We are due for a major presidential scandal. At least, that’s been the pattern for three of the last four administrations. By this point in 1987, President Reagan | Read More »
Hillary Clinton: Trustworthy?
The GOP opposition research group America Rising has released a very slick video on Hillary Clinton. If you reject Clinton and all her works and all her empty promises, as I do, you will be delighted. The neat editing of Bashar Assad (whom Clinton called “a reformer”) into what looks like him making a Nazi salute and the use of an extensive James Carville cut | Read More »
FBI declares Hillary Clinton an “insider threat”
Well, not exactly but very nearly. An “insider threat,” is defined by the National Counterintelligence and Security Center as: An insider threat arises when a person with authorized access to U.S. Government resources, to include personnel, facilities, information, equipment, networks, and systems, uses that access to harm the security of the United States. Malicious insiders can inflict incalculable damage. They enable the enemy to plant | Read More »
Did Hillary let friends use State Department gigs as a piggy bank?
Hillary Clinton had good reason for operating on a private email server. She had an even better reason for deleting some 30,000 email that she and her paid staffers deemed to be “personal.” The reason is that Clinton and a coterie of favored fluffers appear to have used their time at the State Department as a piggy bank; a position from which they could draw | Read More »
Hillary Clinton to America: Bite me!
It wasn’t political theater on the scale of Andrew Breitbart hijacking Anthony Weiner’s press conference but it verged on epic in a Buddhist-monk-self-immolating type of way. Hillary Clinton used the occasion of her appearance at the UN on behalf of the ongoing RICO violation and money laundering operation known as the Bill, Hillary & Chelsea Clinton Foundation to address the building avalanche of questions around | Read More »
Hillary Clinton’s Sleaze of State
The Ethical Vision of Hillary Clinton (Image Credit: Ed Driscoll) Hillary Clinton violated the professional ethics of her office as Secretary of State. She used a personal email address for official business. This is unethical because the official work emails of a Federal Civil Servant or Executive Appointee are supposed to belong to the government and be archived for posterity. The | Read More »
Jeb Bush is not the answer
One of the perennial problems in GOP politics is that our presidential candidates have more in common with their Democrat opponents than they do with the people who vote for Republican candidates. They talk conservative when they need to but their allegiance is really to their own social class. The cheers of GOP voters is nice but the plaudits of the media and the “smart | Read More »
Meet the ‘Other’ Woman Union Bosses Want in the Oval Office
While many on the Left (and the Right) believe that the Presidential candidacy of Hillary Clinton is a foregone conclusion, there is another woman that many on the Left—and of greater importance, within labor’s ranks—would rather see become President and they are beginning to voice their preference ever more loudly. Enter Democrats’ more liberal senator from Massachusetts, Elizabeth Warren. Last week, the AFL-CIO hosted a | Read More »
