  • LOL: Some Want Chelsea Clinton To Run For Senate (That's All What This Country Needs...)

    I don’t know whether this is comedy or a sign that in rural America, Democrats really don’t have anyone to run in statewide races. There were rumors that Sen. Tom Cotton (R-AR) could become the next director of the CIA, current CIA Director Mike Pompeo would become secretary of state, and current Secretary of State Rex Tillerson would be asked to take a hike. Talk about some unwelcome Thanksgiving news if you’re Tillerson. The Trump White House has rejected the notion that this plan is in the works. Tillerson himself said he’s never considered leaving his current post. Still, that...
  • 13 states launch new legal challenge to California egg law

    AP via KCRA (Sacramento) ^ | December 4th, 2017 | Unattributed
    JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (AP) More than a dozen states banded together Monday to ask the U.S. Supreme Court to block a California law requiring any eggs sold there to come from hens that have space to stretch out in their cages. In a lawsuit filed directly to the high court, the states allege that California's law has cost consumers nationwide up to $350 million annually because of higher egg prices since it took effect in 2015. The lawsuit argues that California's requirements violate the U.S. Constitution's interstate commerce clause and are pre-empted by federal law. A federal appeals court...
  • Politico Plugs Bill, Hill, or Chelsea Clinton to Run for Senate from Arkansas

    Newsbusters ^ | December 3, 2017 | P.J. Gladnick
    Mark down this date:December 3, 2017. Why? Because of all the ridiculous stories ever published in Politico, the one written by Bill Scher on that date could well rate as the most absurd of all. Scher, a liberal pundit and contributing editor to Politico's magazine,proposes that if the U.S. Senate seat from Arkansas is open in 2018 due to Tom Cotton leaving the Senate that either Hillary, Bill, or Chelsea Clinton should run for that seat. Adding to the absurdity of that proposal is the fact that Scher details why none of the Clintons would have much of a chance...

    Arkansas political observers were surprised to read Thursday that Republican Sen. Tom Cotton may become CIA director in a Trump administration shakeup, but names already are circulating for potential appointees to replace him in the Senate. Among those under discussion is White House press secretary Sarah Sanders, the daughter of former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee. I would support Sarah in a New York minute! former U.S. Rep. Tommy Robinson, an Arkansas Democrat turned Republican, told the Washington Examiner.

    A liberal New York Times columnist has written that she believes Juanita Broaddricks allegation that Bill Clinton raped her. The headline of Michelle Goldbergs current New York Times column is I believe Juanita. Goldberg explains: Of the Clinton accusers, the one who haunts me is Broaddrick . . . Put simply, I believe her. Adds Goldberg, its fair to conclude that because of Broaddricks allegations, Bill Clinton no longer has a place in decent society. Get the rest of the story here.
  • CNN Analyst: Unlike Roy Moore, Bill Clinton Had Affair that Might Have Been Consensual

    Juanita Broaddrick, hello? Or does the name Paula Jones perhaps ring a bell? CNN political analyst Karoun Demirjian tried this morning to downplay the seriousness of Bill Clintons sexual misconduct compared to that alleged of Roy Moore. In Moores case, said Demirjian, those were children. [To her credit, host Alisyn Camerota jumped in and suggested underage instead of children.] As for Clinton, the only specific case Demirjian mentioned was that of Monica Lewinsky. Demirjian described it as an affair that might have been consensual. Get the rest of the story and view the video here.
  • Dan Rather On Clinton Rape Allegations: Even If They Turn Out To Be True, It Was A Long Time Ago

    We’re not excusing what Roy Moore is accused of—it’s ghastly. The man is accused of being inappropriate with multiple women; with another, a Trump voter, claiming he sexually assaulted her when she was 16 years old. The Republican Party had abandoned Moore; the optics of this is just too terrible to maintain support. It gets worse; Guy wrote today about how this man was banned from a Gadsden mall because he was trolling for high school dates and badgering teenage girls in the process. All of the accusers were teenagers at the time. Yet, one thing the Media Research Center...

    How many people vote based on an audio of someone using lewd language? And not the issues? Not sure. Looks like there's some. "Williams has been asking for a DNA test from Bill Clinton for decades. The Clintons claimed there was a DNA test which disproved Bill was the father, but it was later reported there was never a test." There is nothing complicated here. Mr. Williams wants a DNA test. So why won't Bill Clinton comply? If Mr. Williams is Bill Clinton's son, the DNA test will show that. And if he is not Bill Clinton's son, the DNA...

    Bill Clintons alleged lovechild is asking Monica Lewinsky to allow him to conduct DNA testing on the notorious stain on her blue Gap dress! Arkansas construction worker Danney Lee Williams Jr., 30, told Radar in an exclusive interview that he believes the dress is the vital clue to his bombshell claim that hes Clintons son by an Africa-American prostitute! Lewinsky, now 43, testified the stain resulted from a sex act that she performed on Clinton at the White House on February 28, 1997 and FBI documents confirmed it was a perfect match for the Cheater-in-Chiefs DNA. Father-of-five Williams told Radar:...

    Bill Clinton self-proclaimed secret love child is appealing to borrow Monica Lewinsky's notorious stained dress to conduct DNA testing. Danney Lee Williams Jr., 30, believes that the former White House intern's famous blue dress contains the key to proving that he is the former president's illegitimate son. Williams has long claimed that he is the son of Clinton who met his prostitute mother while she was working on the streets of Little Rock, he claims. The 30-year-old's claims garnered international attention in 1992, as then-Arkansas Gov Clinton was gearing up to run for president. Just last month, Williams had threatened...

They gathered friends and family, which is to say colleagues, and they talked about the good old times, which is to say the successful ones. They put out a bin of old campaign pins and ribbons, lapel declarations of belief in a place called Hope. They sold, and sold out of, $42 tickets to a brunch where you could get miniature apple pies, made-to-order omelets, mimosas, and candied bacon...

    Arkansas Sen. Tom Cotton refused to speculate about what the Senate should do if Roy Moore wins his Senate race in Alabama after being accused of sexually harassing and assaulting multiple women. Cotton, a Republican, said its up to the people of Alabama to decide if thats the kind of man they want representing them in the Senate. As far as Roy Moore goes, I'm not going to speculate about what may happen should he win. We're three weeks out from the election, he made it pretty clear this week that he's not going to step aside its up...

I apologize to you for not knowing your story, Handler told Juanita Broaddrick on Twitter. I believe you, she added.

    One of Arkansas top priorities is finishing Interstate 49 in the western part of the state. A key component of that massive project, which is also massively expensive, is a 13.7-mile stretch near Fort Smith that includes a bridge over the Arkansas River to connect Interstate 40 with Interstate 49, which would then run from south Fort Smith to northwest Arkansas and up through the midsection of the nation. The projects completion would connect with a 6.5-mile stretch of Interstate 549 that opened in 2015 and hooks up U.S. 71 with Highway 22 in south Fort Smith. The proposed 13.7-mile...

    The phantom pilot who's tossed live turkeys from his airplane for 15 years now over the annual Turkey Trot Festival at Yellville, Ark., is a phantom no more. Now that he's been succeeded by a different pilot flying a different aircraft, he's proudly revealed his identity. He turns out to be Dana Woods, pharmacist and alderman from Mountain View. "My plane is on the ground," Alderman Woods texted during the festival, playing the hero of this sad story rather than the villain he is. Naturally enough, he's offered a lame excuse for his (mis)behavior, mainly that his critics care more...

    The state flag of Arkansas sports 25 white stars and four blue ones. And in 1987, while serving as governor of Arkansas, Bill Clinton signed a bill affirming that one of those blue stars is there in honor of the Confederate States of America. The states General Assembly reaffirmed the parameters of the flag in a 1987 act that Clinton signed. Among other provisions detailing the flags features, such as its colors and shapes, there was a line that read, The blue star above the word ARKANSAS is to commemorate the Confederate States of America.
