    As Hillary Clinton waited backstage on Nov. 8, 2016, she looked over at Bill, who was slipping on his suit jacket, and smiled. Her campaign staff clinked their champagne glasses, as she walked to the podium, to signal that, come January, the glass ceiling that held back women had been shattered. Some version of that story with a happy ending for Hillary Clinton’s supporters is what political journalists Jonathan Allen and Amie Parnes were preparing to turn into a book, Allen told an audience of more than 100 attendees at the Carnegie Library Lecture Hall on Tuesday. Instead, they wrote...

    The Brisbane Times ^ | October 18, 2017 | Nicholas Confessore and Daisuke Wakabayashi, The New York Times
    YouTube videos of police beatings on United States' streets. A widely circulated internet hoax about Muslim men in Michigan collecting welfare for multiple wives. A local news story about two veterans brutally mugged on a freezing winter night. All of these were recorded, posted or written by Americans. Yet all ended up becoming grist for a network of Facebook pages linked to a shadowy Russian company that has carried out propaganda campaigns for the Kremlin, and which is now believed to be at the centre of a far-reaching Russian program to influence the 2016 presidential election. A New York Times...
  • Former Hillary Clinton Strategist Refutes Claims That $100,000 Had Huge Impact On Election

    Mark Penn, the former chief strategist for Hillary Clinton’s 2008 presidential campaign, said Tuesday that $100,000 worth of Russian ads on Facebook certainly did not sway the 2016 presidential election. Appearing on a segment for Fox News, Penn, who also was a chief strategist for Bill Clinton’s 1996 presidential campaign, listed a number of reasons why the ads likely had a minuscule impact on the political contest. “Fifty-six percent were after the election … most of them were not to the swing states … [and] most of them didn’t mention candidates,” he said on Fox & Friends. “It really is...

    The answer for digital campaigners moving forward isn’t to abandon experiments, testing, and analytics. The answer is to listen better and to continuously test standing assumptions. The 2016 Trump campaign’s digital director, Brad Parscale, was featured on 60 Minutes last week. Much of the interview focused on the central role of Facebook in Trump’s digital strategy. Parscale shared that he “understood early that Facebook was how Donald Trump was going to win. Twitter is how he talked to the people. Facebook was going to be how he won. …We did [ads] on Twitter, Google search, other platforms. Facebook was the...
  • No one 'shivved' Hillary: She lost because America was over her

    The Hill ^ | October 17, 2017 | Jonathan Turley
    Perhaps it was her orange pantsuit that so many lampooned or Trump’s constant mantra of “lock her up,” but Hillary Clinton appears to be auditioning for the new season of “Orange Is The New Black.” Clinton recently complained that former FBI director James Comey “did shiv me, yeah.” The shiv in this case was the letter on the reopening of its investigation into Clinton’s emails that Comey sent to Congress 11 days before the presidential election last year, a letter that she blames for costing her the win. Clinton’s reliance on the Comey letter is dubious at best. Ironically, it...

    The American Mirror ^ | October 16, 2017 | Kyle Olson
    Failed presidential candidate Hillary Clinton became visibly irritated during an interview with Australian TV when she was asked about Wikileaks and its founder, Julian Assange. In the interview with 4corners, she appeared tired with bags under her eyes, and her bitterness over losing the election to Donald Trump clearly remained. “I think Assange has become a nihilistic opportunist who does the bidding of a dictator,” Clinton said, apparently referring to Russia’s Vladimir Putin. When the interviewer noted many people in Australia view Assange as a “martyr for free speech and freedom of information.” Clinton bristled. “I mean, he’s a tool...

    President Trump and Hillary Clinton are still going at it, and if Trump has his way, they'll square off again in 2020. President Trump tweeted Monday that he hopes "Crooked" Hillary Clinton runs for president again, even as the former secretary of state was telling an Australian media outlet that former FBI Director James Comey gave her the "shiv." "I was recently asked if Crooked Hillary Clinton is going to run in 2020? My answer was, "I hope so!" Trump tweeted.

    As the sun rose this Friday morning in October 2017, Fox & Friends was interviewing author Ed Klein on failed 2016 presidential candidate Hillary Clinton and her relationship with husband Bill. Klein — whose first book on the Clintons was so awful it made the New York Post’s John Podhoretz want to “drive stakes through [his] eyes so [he] wouldn’t have to suffer through another word” — discussed his latest report that Bill hated Hillary’s post-election book “What Happened”.Klein detailed the Clintons’ disagreements during the presidential campaign, including reports that Bill wanted Hillary to spend time in Rust Belt states,...

    Bill and Hillary Clinton are not speaking to each other after a blazing argument over her election book, it has been claimed. The former President threw a manuscript in the trash after Hillary ignored his advice not to publish it, according to author Ed Klein. Bill had red-penned the book in an attempt to improve it, a friend allegedly told Klein, but flew into a rage when Hillary refused to read any of his notes. According to Page Six, the friend said: "He told her the book made her look bewildered, angry and confused, and that those were poor qualities...

    Hezbollah is a greater and more longstanding foundational threat to our homeland than ISIS. This was brought to the forefront last week when two Hezbollah operatives were arrested on charges of surveilling targets for the Iranian-backed terror group on our own soil. They were also naturalized citizens who were admitted from Lebanon as immigrants years ago. Sadly, this story received very little media coverage. President Trump would be wise to give a televised address making the case for his immigration moratorium and travel ban by using this case as a perfect case study for the need for smarter vetting and...
  • (Aug 30, 2016) Clinton Foundation Donor Denied Entry Into U.S. Due To Ties To Hezbollah

    Gilbert Chagoury donated millions of dollars to the Clinton Foundation. He also donated to a Lebanese organization with financial ties to Hezbollah, designated as a Foreign Terrorist Organization by the U.S. State Department. Let that sink in. Hillary Clinton was Secretary of State. A huge donor to her family foundation had ties to an organization that the State Department had designated as a Foreign Terrorist Organization. How extensive were Chagoury’s ties to an organization that funded Hezbollah? So extensive that he was denied entry into the U.S.

    The Washington Examiner ^ | September 12, 2017 | Philip Wegmann
    During the presidential election, Middle-Americans were just too stupid to vote Democrat. At least, that's one of the reasons why Hillary Clinton thinks she lost. The former Democrat nominee refuses to walk away from politics, and in her new book explaining her defeat, she blames everyone from Putin in Moscow to blue collar voters in the Midwest. She has some particularly harsh words for that last group. The poor white working class who helped vote her husband into office, Clinton argues, have made themselves perpetual martyrs. "A culture of grievance, victimhood, and scapegoating has taken root as traditional values of...

Bob Corker (R-TN) to “resign immediately” on Monday evening after Corker revealed on Sunday that Bannon was right when Bannon said the Republican establishment wants to “nullify the 2016 election” in which Donald Trump won the White House by aggressively running on an economic nationalist agenda. Corker got into a Twitter spat with Trump on Sunday, tweeting that, “It’s a shame the White House has become an adult day care center. Someone obviously missed...

    Hollywood movie mogul Harvey Weinstein will be hosting a star-studded fundraiser for Hillary Clinton on Monday night in New York City. The Democratic donor, who owns the Hamptons house next door to the $50,000-a-week vacation home the Clintons rented last summer, has already maxed out to Hillary Clinton's presidential campaign and contributed up to $250,000 to the Clinton Foundation. His latest favor for his Hamptons pal will be hosting the likes of Jennifer Lopez, Sarah Jessica Parker, Matthew Broderick, and climate change hero Leonardo DiCaprio at his Manhattan home for a fundraiser benefitting the Hillary Victory Fund, according to the...

    Another 9/11, another Brussels, another Paris? According to indictments unsealed yesterday by the Department of Justice, a three-man Islamist terror cell plotted versions of all the above for another attack on New York City. Before they could carry it out, an FBI undercover agent discovered the plot in 2016, then coordinated an international manhunt to capture all three erstwhile terrorists: The alleged scheme was more nefarious than many: The group, which wanted to attack Times Square and the New York City subway system, claimed to have been in touch with an Islamic State affiliate to obtain the official sanction...

    It began as a relatively quiet day in the presidential campaign. Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump were each holed up with their aides on Friday, Oct. 7, 2016, preparing for the second presidential debate, scheduled for Sunday night. Hurricane Matthew, which was churning off the Florida coast, led the Friday-morning newscasts. The Chicago Cubs were beginning a quest for their first World Series title in more than a century. But by midafternoon three separate bombshells, all coming within the span of roughly 90 minutes, threatened to throw the race into chaos. First, the top intelligence officials of the Obama administration...

    NEW YORK (AP) - Tennis icon Billie Jean King is not mincing words about the many white women who voted for Donald Trump, saying they "really don't like themselves." King, who led the fight for equal pay for women in tennis, also says she feels there is more misogyny now than when she defeated Bobby Riggs in the famous "Battle of the Sexes" match in 1973, the subject of the new movie starring Emma Stone and Steve Carell. "I think there's a lot of misogyny - I think it's higher now than it was," King said in an interview Tuesday...
