    Accused Saddam Agent Says He Met With Hillary at White House By IRA STOLL, STAFF REPORTER OF THE SUN | March 27, 2008 A Michigan man facing federal criminal charges of illegally working for Saddam Hussein's Iraqi Intelligence Service says he met with Hillary Clinton at the White House in May 1996. In a 1997 interview with this reporter, Muthanna Hanooti said that at the meeting, Mrs. Clinton was "very receptive" to his request for an easing of the American sanctions on Iraq that were in place at the time. He said Mrs. Clinton "passed a message to the State...

    Before he was alleged to have become a spy for Saddam Hussein's regime, Muthanna Al-Hanooti's charity work and political activism provided him with access to the highest echelons of government. Newsletters collected by the Investigative Project on Terrorism, some published now for the first time, show Al-Hanooti photographed with dignitaries ranging from First Lady Hillary Clinton in 1996 and Vice President Al Gore along with significant members of Congress. That may explain why Iraqi intelligence agents had confidence that Al-Hanooti would be able to persuade Congress to lift economic sanctions against Iraq. A federal indictment unsealed Wednesday accuses him of...

    Former Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton said Tuesday that U.S. should send a clear message that the illegal immigrant children who have been surging across the border will be sent home. Mrs. Clinton, speaking during a town hall hosted by CNN, said the children should receive the best possible medical care, but should be return to their home countries if their relatives can be located. “They should be sent back as soon as it can be determined who the responsible adults in their family are because there are concerns about whether all of them can be sent back, but...

    It’s clear now to Democrats that only a Clinton can save them from the progressive extremes of Barack Obama. There is some precedent for this. But the end, Clinton can't save them. Bill Clinton made two amazing volte-face turns in his career, from progressive to centrist Democrat, both of which sealed his reputation as a master politician, whatever one thinks of his statesmanship. While most people are familiar with Clinton’s swing to a more moderate path-- even cooperating with the GOP-- after getting historically bested in the first mid-terms of his presidency, many don’t realize that it was a maneuver...

    Warren Buffett is predicting that Hillary Clinton will not only run for president in 2016, but that she will also win the election. 'Hillary is going to run,' said the billionaire investor while speaking at Fortune's Most Powerful Women Summit in Laguna Niguel, California, earlier today. He then went one step further, telling the audience, 'Hillary's going to win.' uffett famously supported both President Barack Obama and Clinton in the 2008 Democratic primary, going to great lengths to let people know how capable and talented he believed both candidates were in a 2007 interview with The New York Times.

But he was really put out that someone apparently connected to him said so, anonymously, in a National Journal story and Cruz took to social media to make his point. “Heidi and I have not made any decisions about political plans past the mid-term elections,” Cruz posted on Facebook, referring to his wife. “Clearly we have an overzealous supporter out there making freelance comments, but to be clear, no decision has been made. “Whoever this ‘anonymous advisor’ was, he or she had no authority to...

    Yesterday, speaking at Northwestern University’s much-esteemed Kellogg School of Management, President Obama committed a huge strategic blunder. It has been no secret that Democrats running for Senate seats have been distancing themselves from the unpopular president, often finding excuses not to greet him on the tarmac or appear next to him on the podium when he visits their states. For them, it is imperative that voters separate support for Kay Hagan or Al Franken (for instance) from support for Barack Obama. They want the midterm election to be a local affair, not a national referendum. But President Obama just undid...

    Part of Mitt Romney's success in securing the Republican presidential nomination in 2012 bore out of the fact that he benefited from the spoils of a divided faction on the right. If Rick Santorum and Newt Gingrich were ever able to consolidate the sum of their supporters around one of them, Romney's path to victory could have faced great peril. This calculation is weighing heavy on the minds of social conservatives as they look for a horse to ride in 2016. With an adviser to Sen.

    Two-time presidential loser Mitt Romney's sprawling network of consultants and aides is sitting tight, waiting for the former Massachusetts governor to decide whether he wants to run for president a third time. Romney, who until recently had long denied any true interest in another bid, is reportedly talking the idea over with his family. Ann Romney isn't exactly denying it. Former running mate Paul Ryan, thought to be a possible presidential contender himself, is almost encouraging it. And Romney himself declined to close the door on the possibility in an interview with Romneyphile Hugh Hewitt. As I write this, an...

Ted Cruz (R-TX) on Thursday ripped U.S. Senate Democrats for blocking his bill that would revoke the U.S. citizenship of those who join the ISIS terrorist organization, noting that they are abandoning something Hillary Clinton supported when she was Secretary of State. The Democrats blocked Cruz’s bill on Thursday, a bill that would revoke citizenship from Americans who join ISIS. Cruz’s bill is very similar to one that then Sen.

    WASHINGTON - The nightly news shows made it very clear this week that they've gotten behind Hillary Clinton's expected 2016 campaign for president. The network news programs gave Clinton's trip to Iowa the gushing, royal treatment on Sunday, repeating it again on Monday, as she appeared before a throng of cheering Democrats where her party's first presidential nominating caucuses will be held. The coverage of her speech, which was loaded with empty platitudes and little else that was newsworthy, bordered on the worshipful. That she has the 2016 Democratic nomination virtually sewed up at this juncture tells us everything we...
  • Hillary's "Steak" is Not Well Done

    Prior to his annual steak fry, retiring Sen. Tom Harkin (D-Iowa) said this about Hillary Clinton to Dan Balz of The Washington Post: "...she is much more progressive in her thoughts and her inclination than most people may think." Liberals have embraced the word "progressive" because it sounds more forward-looking than "liberal," which has a track record voters periodically reject when the ideology doesn't live up to its declared goals (think Hubert Humphrey, George McGovern, Michael Dukakis, John Kerry, John Edwards and Al Gore, among others). There is much we know about Hillary Clinton by whatever label she chooses to...

    Remember how Hillary Clinton was the inevitable next president? Remember how she would likely be fighting Andrew Cuomo the Democrat governor of New York for the 2016 Democrat nomination? If you don’t remember these “facts” you’re not alone. Tuesday’s Democrat primary in New York State brought a crashing end to talk of presidential dreams for “Prince Andrew of Albany.” While he won the primary with just over 60%, Cuomo lost about 40% of what should be his natural base. In deep Blue New York State the Democrat governor couldn’t win a resounding victory among the most devoted voters of his...

    The more Hillary Clinton looks like a candidate, the less invincible she appears. The former first lady and New York senator enjoyed sky-high approval ratings during her tenure as President Barack Obama’s secretary of state, but her numbers have returned to earth since she traded her perch as the nation’s top diplomat for her current role as the Democrats’ top presidential prospect in 2016. The latest Wall Street Journal/NBC News poll found 43% of registered voters view Ms. Clinton positively, compared with the 41% who harbor negative views. That’s a steep drop from February 2009 when 59% viewed the newly...

    Libertarianism isnÂ’t confined to caucasians anymore. The Pew Research Center recently released a study on who in America describes themselves as libertarian while being able to accurately identify what the label actually means. Of the total demographic, 12 percent of respondents who identified as libertarian were white, unsurprisingly the largest demographic population. However, Hispanics self-identified as libertarian at almost the same rate, 11 percent. By comparison, only three percent of blacks fell into the same category (other demographics were not included in the final results). Libertarians also tend to be young; Millennials are the largest group of libertarians, with the...

    (VIDEO-AT-LINK)In an exclusive interview Wednesday with Yahoo Global News Anchor Katie Couric, Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren slammed former House Majority Leader Eric Cantor for accepting a multimillion-dollar job with a Wall Street investment bank shortly after leaving Congress. "This is wrong," Warren said in regard to Cantor's new role as vice chairman and managing director at Moelis & Co. "People work in Washington and, man, they hit that revolving door with a speed that would blind you." She went on to claim that banks hire politicians like Cantor "not because they bring great expertise and insight, but because they’re selling...

    Secretary of State John Kerry's speech at the groundbreaking ceremony for the U.S. Diplomacy Center in Washington, D.C. Wednesday included an intriguing aside that appeared to reference the upcoming 2016 presidential election. Kerry spoke after remarks by each of the five former secretaries of state in attendance: Henry Kissinger, James Baker, III, Madeleine Albright, Colin Powell, and Hillary Clinton (Condoleezza Rice and George Shultz were not present.) After extolling the accomplishments of each of the five former top diplomats, Kerry said, "Join me, all of you, in thanking five of our six living former secretaries of state... They all look...
  • Is Wendy Davis' political star fading in Texas gubernatorial race?

    As a feisty state senator with pink sneakers and a fist in the air, Wendy Davis captured both the love and the ire of America last year when she pulled an 11-hour filibuster of anti-abortion measures in the Texas Capitol. But after using that star power to win her party's nomination for governor, Davis is still struggling to take a lead over Republican Attorney General Greg Abbott, and some say party confidence in her race is waning. "I think the frustration in some Democratic circles is that, despite her star power and substantial war chest, she has not been able...

    This is exactly how this will play out: The shutdown WILL occur on Oct 1. No noticeable effects for a while. On or about October 15, Obama will pull the plug on the EBT cards and blame Republicans. From October 15 - November 1st, increasing levels of riots will occur in major cities. The entire time, Obama and the Propaganda Corps (ABC NBC CBS CNN NYT) will blame it on the shutdown and on Republicans. November 1st through 7th, Obama will demand Democrats get to the polls to restore government services. Democrats will turn out in numbers never seen before...
  • Hillary fibs about S-CHIP “experience”, too: Boston Globe

    Hillary Clinton has tried to claim credit for everything politically popular that happened during her husband’s administration, and has even attempted to create a few that never happened at all. Most of these arguments have resulted in repudiation, as when Lord Trimble scornfully dismissed her supposed contribution to the Northern Ireland peace talks as “cheerleading”. Today, the Boston Globe finds more cheerleading than leadership on S-CHIP, which Hillary had claimed as her initiative (via Memeorandum): Hillary Clinton, who has frequently described herself on the campaign trail as playing a pivotal role in forging a children’s health insurance plan, had little...

    To paraphrase a memorable advertisement starring a young Andre Agassi: In Iowa, image is everything. It's a lesson that Rand Paul appears to be learning the hard way. Citing a "family commitment," the likely 2016 White House hopeful passed on attending Saturday’s Family Leadership Summit -- evangelical leader Bob Vander Plaats’ annual gathering of social-conservative activists in Ames, Iowa. Few in the nation’s first voting state would have considered the Kentucky senator’s absence a big deal, especially since Paul has been extremely active building relationships in Iowa and has visited there frequently over the past year, including a three-day trip...
