  • Hillary takes heat after discovery she slept through president’s Benghazi briefing

    Apparently, Hillary Clinton isn’t even ready for the 10 a.m. phone call. Information obtained from her emails released by the State Department Friday revealed that Clinton missed President Obama’s first daily intel briefing after the 2012 terrorist attacks on Benghazi. “I just woke up,” the former secretary of state wrote at 10:43 a.m on Sept 15, 2012. It was a far cry from her 2008 campaign ad against then-Sen. Barack Obama asking if he would be ready for a 3 a.m. phone call.

    Special Operations Speaks PAC, an organization to educate Americans about threats to the United States, has started a petition to impeach Hillary Clinton – and so far, nearly 31,000 have signed. “Fact is, congressional precedent dictates that all elected officials remain subject to impeachment and disqualification from holding office even after resignation,” SOS said, on its website. As such: the PAC says Clinton must go. Just in time for the 2016 election, hear Hillary Clinton say she would NOT run for president, in “Hillary Unhinged” by Thomas Kuiper.

    Hillary Clinton released an announcement over Memorial Day weekend on her Facebook page, saying that what we may think of as "free speech" can be hurtful towards other Americans, and we should put more effort into monitoring what we and others say to avoid painful dialogues, especially on the internet. "There is a problem in this country when people, mostly right-wing bigots, can easily inflict pain and suffering towards others through hurtful words and objections against alternative lifestyles and political stances. You often see it on Facebook and other forms of social media, where they are constantly spewing hate and...

    **SNIP** Much like Clinton’s speech to Salesforce, the former secretary of state’s speech isn’t available online nor would ISRI give video upon request. The speech of ISRI’s 2015 convention speaker, former Secretary of Defense Robert Gates, appears on the company’s YouTube page, but Bill Clinton’s 2009 speech to the same group does not. But such is the case for almost all of Hillary Clinton’s paid speeches from 2014 — though most were given to massive audiences, almost none are available in their entirety online. What’s clear is that most, if not all, of the companies and organizations that hired Hillary...

Those were some of the groups represented Saturday in a march against the controversial biotech and agricultural giant Monsanto, which is often cast as Public Enemy No. 1 by those opposed to genetically modified foods. As many as 500 people — many dressed like bumblebees and butterflies — filled Justin Herman Plaza around noon and then marched down the Embarcadero to Fisherman’s Wharf. Many held signs with slogans like “Evil Seed of Corporate Greed” and “GMOs Cause Autism and Cancer.”

Bolton said, “I think the most telling information that we have seen in this limited number of emails is that there are repeated examples of Secretary of State Clinton being told in 2011 and 2012 that the security situation of our personnel in Tripoli...

    Newly reported emails indicate Hillary Clinton was personally made aware of security dangers in the months leading up to the Sept. 11, 2012, terrorist attacks on U.S. compounds in Benghazi, Libya. That’s according to the House Benghazi Committee, which has obtained 300 long-sought emails from the State Department among tens of thousands under subpoena. The Benghazi Committee says there are a number of emails in which State Department personnel specifically passed along security issues to Clinton in 2011 and 2012 before the attacks. An August 2012 email to then-Secretary of State Clinton from one of her top aides, Jake Sullivan,...

    As Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton fights through several mini-scandals, her approval rating has been skidding, sending her "favorability" rating to a seven-year low. In a new report, Pew Research Center said that her rating crossed the 50 percent mark this month and now sits at 49 percent. It was lower, at 48 percent, way back in May 2008 when she was being pushed out of the presidential race by then Sen. Barack Obama. It has been a steady fall from the 66 percent favorable rating she had as secretary of state in November 2009. Pew's report provided a graph...

    Recent revelations that the Clinton Foundation neglected to report over $26 million in payments from major corporations, universities, foreign sources and other groups was characterized as "a mere oversight" by Foundation Chief Executive Officer Donna Shalala. "The Foundation has raised more than $2 billion dollars over the years its been in existence," Shalala pointed out. "The $26 million everyone is hyperventilating over is relative pocket change amounting to barely 1% of the total.

Because I couldn't think of a single piece of legislation that has her name stuck proudly on the front of it, no equivalent of McCain-Feingold, for example, I headed straight for her campaign website to see what glorious aspects of her vaunted experience I was missing. Actually, I was missing nothing. There is not one single example...

    Secretary of State Hillary Clinton is referred to as the “public face of the U.S. effort in Libya” in a 2012 memo written by Jake Sullivan, a top Clinton aide at the State Department. The email was written months before the attack on the U.S. compound in Benghazi that killed four Americans. Sullivan’s April 2012 memo detailed Clinton’s role in Libya, framing her as “instrumental in securing the authorization, building the coalition, and tightening the noose around Qadhafi and his regime.” It notes Clinton’s role in those efforts, including her work lobbying for United Nations sanctions against the dictator and...

New emails released today show that Ms. Clinton thought the Ambassador's name was "Chris Smith," and referred to him as such in two separate emails. The first, sent by Ms. Clinton from her secret "Hrod17" email at 11:38 pm, had the subject of "Chris Smith" and asked if the State Department should announce his death: In response, Cheryl Mills, the Counselor and Chief of Staff to Secretary Clinton, did not correct...

The guidance from ex-Clinton aide Sidney Blumenthal was contained in a memo sent Sept. 13, according to The New York Times.

    CEDAR FALLS, Iowa — The Chicago media executive hosting Hillary for an afternoon fundraiser ranks in the elite category of $25 million donors to the Clinton Foundation. But the Clinton Foundation’s own public records on Fred Eychaner’s contributions illustrate the problem with disclosing its donations; the harsh scrutiny causing Clinton political trouble as she ramps up her presidential campaign. The Clinton Foundation’s website lists Eychaner’s Alphawood Foundation as a donor of between $10,001 and $25,001, but an examination of the Alphawood Foundation’s Form 990 tax documents reveals that it in fact contributed $7.25 million from 2003 to 2007.

    “Clinton Cash” author Peter Schweizer said that he is ” finding some interesting, compelling things” in his investigation of Jeb Bush on Tuesday’s “Hugh Hewitt Show.” Schweizer reported, “We’re about four months into the research project, obviously not as global in scope as the Clintons, but you know, as governor of the state of Florida, you have a lot of things that you can do. So we’re following the money. We’re looking at land deals. We’re looking at an airport deal. We are looking at some of the educational reforms that were instituted, and some of the big corporate winners...

    WASHINGTON — Traveling the world as secretary of state, Hillary Clinton was a vocal booster of legislation to fast-track congressional action on global trade agreements. She also spoke in favor of the Trans-Pacific Partnership, which would lift barriers to trade with 11 Asian and Pacific Rim countries. Now, with the release last week of her latest financial disclosure statement, Clinton has revealed the flow of a different kind of trade dollars. Companies and coalitions aligned with her past positions on the trade legislation ponied up more than $2 million of the nearly $12 million in speaking fees Clinton hauled in...

    When it comes to the countless lies of this administration (and that of the next one under Hillary Clinton) one has to just throw in the flag. Days after Seymour Hersh exposed the biggest lie of Obama's first term, a lie which we learned was also facilitated and perpetuated by the CIA as well (the topic of the latest Frontline documentary "How the CIA Helped Make “Zero Dark Thirty”"), we get yet more evidence of the administration's lies this time on a topic dear - and sensitive - for the person who may well be the next US president, Hillary...

    In 2011 Barack Obama led from behind a NATO coalition bent on removing Moammar Gaddafi from power in Libya. The removal and death of Gaddafi was, Obama put it, a warning to "iron fisted" rulers everywhere. Syria, Iran and North Korea excepted, of course. Over at Foreign Policy this was hailed as a huge success. "Leading from behind" is an important element of this doctrine. It is no insult to lead but let others feel they too are architects of a plan, to lead without making others feel you are bullying, to lead but do so in a way in...
  • Impeach Hillary Now: Special Operations Veterans Call Congress to Disqualify Hillary Clinton.

    "Over 15,000 Americans, including active and former military members, have signed our open petition declaring that Hillary Clinton is unfit to serve as the next President of the United States," says SOS co-founder Colonel Richard F. Brauer Jr. USAF, (Ret). "Our next step is to engage members of Congress, starting in the House of Representatives, to impeach and convict former U.S. Secretary of State Clinton for her crimes and prevent her from accessing any other office in the United States." The veterans-backed Political Action Committee notes that congressional precedent dictates that all cabinet members remain subject to impeachment and disqualification...

    American voters must have been dropped on their heads, suffered a hetmatoma and need retro-bottom-bottle glasses, if they would vote for Hill just because of what's NOT in her panties, without considering what will happen when we run out of the Presidential Depends®.If Martin O'Malley was such a good find for Bubba—the Willie Mayes of Politics, he knows the winning stats in every last congressional district—why shouldn't he end up on the inside peeping out rather than outside peeping in, of LBJ's legendary tent?That's what would happen if they got George Soros out of the Kingmaking Biz and had an...

    Chelsea Clinton is so 'difficult' and unpleasant to staff at the family charity she runs that there has been an unusually high turnover of staff at the Foundation, it has been claimed. 'A lot of people left because she was there. A lot of people left because she didn’t want them there. She is very difficult,' sources told the New York Post. It's claimed that former CEO Bruce Lindsey was pushed upstairs to the position of chairman of the board two years ago, so that Chelsea could bring in Eric Braverman, a former colleague from consultancy company McKinsey and Company....

    »» Columnists Here’s How Hillary Clinton Responded to Fox Reporter’s Request for Her to Take Questions by Andrew Kirell | 12:31 pm, May 19th, 2015 video 20 Since announcing her presidential run a month ago, Hillary Clinton has rarely taken questions from the media. It’s gotten so bad that the New York Times has taken to asking hypothetical questions for when she does start answering; and the Washington Post has begun counting the minutes since her last media conversation. Her reluctance to answer questions has been underscored by ongoing controversies surrounding foreign donations to the Clinton Foundation and her use...

    The crony in question is Sid Blumenthal, former White House advisor to Bill and longtime hatchet man for the pair. We already knew Blumenthal was running his own off-the-books intelligence operation for the Secretary of State. We also knew that he’d put a friend representing a pro-Putin pol in Georgia in touch with Hillary to lobby her on behalf of the Georgian opposition. And the reason we knew those things isn’t because Hillary Clinton voluntarily turned over Blumenthal’s communications to State as part of routine recordkeeping protocols. We know it because a hacker infiltrated Blumenthal’s e-mail account a few years...

    Jeb Bush’s for-profit education company reportedly paid Hillary Clinton $225,000 for a speech in March of last year. According to a report in The Intercept, Academic Partnerships, the education group Bush invested in and on whose board he sat until December of last year, paid Clinton the hefty sum to speak at an invitation-only event on March 24, 2014 in Dallas, Texas. Bush reportedly “joined Academic Partnerships as an investor and as a paid advisor” in 2011 before resigning from the group in December of last year after he announced that he was exploring a presidential bid. Bush, who awarded Clinton the Liberty Medal from...
