The Jacksonville Panic
Several consultants, Democrat and Republican, clued me in last year on a race that has sailed under the radar in the United States: the Jacksonville, FL mayoral race. Democrats and Republicans alike tell me that Barack Obama used Jacksonville as a testing ground for his campaign strategy and technology in helping Democrats take the city. Registered Democrats outnumber their Republican counterparts, but the city has | Read More »
Did Hillary Clinton know of Benghazi attack in advance?
This is not shaping up to be a good week for Hillary Clinton. Not only has someone inside the Democrat party apparatus fed the New York Times a damning batch of emails that indicate that Hillary used the State Department to enrich cronies and lied to Gowdy’s Benghazi committee about her use of private email, she has now been firmly nailed down as being a | Read More »
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 »
Objectivity by any other name…
Thanks to some fantastic work by the Washington Free Beacon, ABC chief news dude George Stephanopoulos has now admitted (albeit to POLITICO) that he has donated more than $50,000 to the Clinton Foundation. ABC News chief anchor George Stephanopoulos has donated between $50,001 and $100,000 to the Clinton Foundation, the charitable organization run by his former boss, records show. At least a portion of that money was | 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
Allegedly Vermont Socialist Senator Bernie Sanders is set to announce his candidacy for the presidency. VPR News has learned from several sources that Independent U.S. Sen. Bernie Sanders will announce his candidacy for the Democratic presidential nomination on Thursday. Sanders will release a short statement on that day and then hold a major campaign kickoff in Vermont in several weeks. Sanders’ entry into the Democratic | Read More »
More Clinton Foreign Money Hypocrisy: They Blasted Bob Dole for It!
(H/T: Buzzfeed) A few days ago, I wrote about how Hillary Clinton hit Barack Obama over shady nuclear industry dealing in 2008. Unsurprisingly, another problematic video has surfaced for the Clintons, and it has to do with foreign donations this time. For this one, we have to turn the clock back to 1996 for this ad where the Clinton-Gore campaign blasted Bob Dole for shady | Read More »
Events Change Things
More and more news flows out on a near daily basis about the corruption of Hillary Clinton. I have said before and will repeat that one can understand everything about Bill and Hillary Clinton by understanding they have financial anorexia. Bill and Hillary Clinton look in the mirror and still see poor people. So Bill Clinton got money under the table from the Russians while | Read More »
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 »
It’s Monday, so it’s time for a new Hillary Clinton ‘Hand in the Foundation Jar’ story.
Hillary Clinton’s State Department gave a LOT of its awards to companies that gave the Clinton Foundation money.

Remember that Time Hillary Hit Obama on Backroom Nuclear Donor Deals?
Over the past couple of days, we here at RedState have talked quite a bit about Hillary Clinton’s backroom deals with nuclear industry bigwigs that have essentially handed our country’s uranium supplies over to Russia. However, the story doesn’t end with the Clintons’ own backroom dealing and subsequent lying about it. Now, we can add “blatant hypocrisy” to the list. The Washington Free Beacon has | Read More »
The NYT Caught the Clintons in a Lie on Uranium
My colleagues Moe Lane and streiff have done a great job covering how the Clintons have sold us to Russia when it comes to uranium. However, we now know even more damning information on the story. Namely, that the Clintons lied to the New York Times about the negotiations for the deal with the Kazakhstani state owned nuclear company Kazatomprom. The Blaze has written an | 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 »
