    President Barack Obama considered being homosexual as a young man, according to a forthcoming biography of the president. The biography by David Garrow, “Rising Star: The Making of Barack Obama,” is set to come out on May 9. Garrow wrote a Pulitzer Prize-winning biography of Martin Luther King Jr., and is a regular contributor to The New York Times and The Washington Post. In a chapter about the former president’s two years at Occidental College, Garrow reveals a close relationship Obama had with an openly gay assistant professor named Lawrence Goldyn. ------------------------------------------------- “Three years later, Obama wrote somewhat elusively to...

    The new Clinton campaign tell-all, Shattered: Inside Hillary Clinton’s Doomed Campaign, reveals how Hillary Clinton personally placed blame for her bruising defeat on Russian meddling “within twenty-four hours of her concession speech.”The blistering behind-the-scenes book, by Jonathan Allen and Amie Parnes, illustrates how Hillary Clinton furiously blamed her defeat on the FBI investigation into her private emails, Russian interference, and Trump’s supposed support from “white nationalists.”From Shattered: On a phone call with a longtime friend a couple of days after the election, Hillary was much less accepting of her defeat. She put a fine point on the factors she believed cost her the presidency: the...
  • Shattered: A New Fairy Tale about How Hillary ‘Forgot’ White Voters

    The Russians are off the hook. The chattering geniuses have discovered a new villain to blame for the shattering demise of their heroine, Hillary. White guys did it. The same reporters who cheered Hillary’s every misstep and doubted every Trump triumph are now trying to convince us that Hillary would be wearing the presidential pants suits today if only her staffers had not forgotten about white voters. That is what we learned from Shattered, the latest 2016 campaign obituary that crashed into bookstores this week. The pundits were so busy misreporting the election, they did not listen to what was...
  • A brief (?) review of ‘Shattered: Inside Hillary Clinton’s Doomed Campaign’

    Despite the grim, fatalistic title make no mistake: this is a hagiography. These authors, after all, produced ‘HRC: State Secrets And The Rebirth Of Hillary Clinton’ in 2014. That book, of course, was an unabashed hagiography featuring information gleaned from the so-called inner circle. The authors employ the same method here, guaranteeing interviewees that they will be ‘on background’ and not identified by name. Had Allen & Parnes been Atlanta-based sportswriters covering Super Bowl LI, they would have provided painstaking detail of every aspect of the Falcons’ game preparation and playcalling – and the New England Patriots would simply be...
  • Crooked Hillary Spied on Her Own Campaign Staff

    04/18/2017 5:09:02 PM PDT · by davikkm · 43 replies
    Crooked Hillary Clinton did not even trust her closest advisers. She spied on them. The New York Post reported: Years before Hillary Clinton’s private email server ever became a campaign issue, Clinton spent a few months doing some digital snooping on her own staff. The new book “Shattered: Inside Hillary Clinton’s Doomed Campaign” by Jonathan Allen and Amie Parnes (Crown, out now) reveals that in the summer of 2008, Clinton wanted an honest assessment of what had gone wrong in her failed presidential bid against Barack Obama. To this end, she had a trusted aide access the campaign’s server and...
  • Biden was crushed by ‘silent rebuke’ from Obama

    Vice President Joe Biden seriously considered throwing his hat in the ring of the 2016 presidential campaign, but ultimately decided not to after the death of his son, Beau Biden, from brain cancer in May 2015. In the new book “Shattered: Inside Hillary Clinton’s Doomed Campaign” by Jonathan Allen and Amie Parnes (Crown, out now), the authors reveal that before Beau got sick, the Biden family was focused on the son’s future political prospects.

    Shattered: Inside Hillary Clinton's Doomed Campaign could just as accurately been titled, Shattered: How a Pair of MSM Journalists Inadvertently Destroyed Their Credibility. The reason is that while authors Jonathan Allen and Amie Parnes are now somewhat frank in revealing the faults of Hillary Clinton's 2016 presidential campaign, back when they were reporting on it they acted as cheerleaders for her. As proof we have the first chapter of the book which went into detail on the background of the gymnastics that went into crafting via committee the banalities that went into Hillary's lackluster kickoff speech on June 13, 2015 at...

    A new book by Jonathan Allen and Amie Parnes, "Shattered: Inside Hillary Clinton's Doomed Campaign," makes it clear that whatever you thought was happening in Brooklyn at Clinton's campaign headquarters, it was worse. One of the kickers: Hillary's top aides were as miserable as midlevel bureaucrats in an agency with no clear plans. More highlights from the book: Jon Favreau, brought in to help with the announcement speech, "thought Clinton's campaign was reminiscent of John Kerry's, where he had gotten his start in 2004 — a bunch of operatives who were smart and accomplished ... but weren't united by any...

    Hillary Clinton had to eat humble pie twice on election night. Clinton apologized to President Obama for her bruising loss — right after calling Donald Trump to offer him “congratulations,” according to a new book chronicling her 2016 presidential bid called “Shattered: Inside Hillary Clinton’s Doomed Campaign.” “Mr. President, I’m sorry,” she said, according to a Washington Post review of the book due out Tuesday. The White House urged Clinton to concede as Trump claimed battleground states — some by slim margins — because Obama wanted to avoid a messy recount.

    What you end up with when the moral barriers topple is, not least, the end of due process at American colleges and universities. It's a dreadful prospect you likely wouldn't imagine without having scanned some of the stories on the rape crisis said to be spreading across American campuses. Supposedly, college women are at immense and growing risk of assault by males who take advantage of opportunity and superior strength to "have their way," as the old euphemism had it. Naturally, the claims have invited federal attention. (Everything seems, these days, to invite federal attention.) The respected investigative reporter Stuart...

    The Hill ^ | 4/18/2017 | Rebecca Savransky
    Former President Bill Clinton originally did not want Hillary Clinton to apologize for her use of a private email server while serving as secretary of State, a new book reveals. The Hill's Amie Parnes and Sidewire's Jonathan Allen report in "Shattered: Inside Hillary Clinton's Doomed Campaign" that the former Democratic presidential nominee's top advisers thought she should apologize, regardless of whether or not she had done something wrong. But Bill Clinton thought differently. Instead, he thought his wife should explain what she was thinking and why she didn't believe she had done anything wrong with her email setup. During an...

    RUSH: Ladies and gentlemen, there’s a new book coming out very, very soon. It’s by Jonathan Allen and Amy Parnes, and it’s a book on Hillary Clinton’s failed campaign and what went on. And it focuses and highlights all of the infighting, the very low morale, the lack of trust between Hillary and many of her staffers, the intervention of Bill Clinton trying to save the day and failing, all of the heated exchanges. And the book doesn’t say one thing about the Russians being responsible for any of it. It’s a devastating look at the Clinton campaign. And it...
  • Blunt Hillary Book Contrasts with Journalists' Previous Cheerleading

    NewsBusters ^ | April 12, 2017 | P.J. Gladnick
    When is the best time to get something written by liberals resembling the truth about a liberal politician? The answer is after, and only after, that liberal politician has lost the final campaign of his or her career. Such is the case with authors Jonathan Allen and Amie Parnes who in 2014 wrote a mushy book about Hillary Clinton called "HRC". Of course, back then Hillary was looked upon as the heir apparent for the Democrat nomination in 2016 which resulted in a book chock full of cheerleading for the annointed one. This was in sharp contrast to their new...

    The American Spectator ^ | 04/05/17 | GEORGE NEUMAYR
    The media’s ministry of “truth” strains to sanitize spying on Trump.The English author George Orwell wrote that “political language is designed to make lies sound truthful and murder respectable, and to give an appearance of solidity to pure wind.” But even Orwell couldn’t have imagined the propagandistic whoppers that American journalists would mouth in their frenzied attempt to sanitize Obama’s spying on Trump. Again and again, Obama’s ministry of propaganda, with its branch offices from CNN to the New York Times to the Washington Post, solemnly instruct Americans that “unmasking is not spying.” That is about as convincing as the...

    We hear claims that the U.S. needs to make transformative changes so our society will be better (in the eyes of intellectuals, anyway) almost every day. One such claim comes in a new book by an economics professor who argues that lucky people are taking too much of “our” wealth and that’s causing bad consequences for America. Naturally, government can fix that supposed problem. The author, Robert Frank is an economist who has spent decades thinking about the role of luck in our society. More than twenty years ago, he co-authored the book The Winner-Take-All Society, arguing that we have...

    (CNN)--Looking for a quick vacation read? It doesn't get any quicker than Michael J. Knowles' "Reasons To Vote For Democrats" -- all of the pages are blank. Knowles is a Yale graduate and correspondent for the Daily Wire, a conservative website. He self-published the book, which contains only headers and a bibliography, along with 266 empty pages. The book, a clear attempt to troll Democrats, has set the internet on fire and vaulted to the No. 1 bestseller spot on Amazon. "What's really great about this book, you can go cover to cover in about 15, 20 seconds," Knowles said...

    Margaret Atwood is speaking out about the political relevance of her book The Handmaid's Tale in the era of Donald Trump's presidency. Her 1985 novel, which has been adapted into a series that will debut April 26 on Hulu, is set in the near-future and tells the story of Offred (played in the series by Elisabeth Moss), a woman pressed into service as a handmaid to a member of the ruling elite in a world where fertility is rare, making it her sole job to reproduce.
