  • Hillary has long history of beating up Bill behind closed doors: book

    She’s on a mission to be a softer, warmer, funnier candidate — but according to a new book, the real Hillary Clinton is so volatile and prone to violent outbursts that she terrorizes staff, Secret Service agents and even her own husband. In “The Clintons’ War On Women” (Skyhorse), out Oct. 13, political strategist Roger Stone details Hillary’s abusive behavior — dating back to the Clintons’ days in Arkansas, where Bill served as governor. *snip* In March 1993, when Hillary flew to her father’s deathbed in Little Rock, Ark., Bill entertained Barbra Streisand at the White House. When Hillary heard...

    One of the Clintons’ oldest and most trusted legal advisers has urged Hillary to hire a criminal defense attorney to represent her in case she’s indicted for mishandling classified documents on her private e-mail server and for lying under oath. The adviser, who has been a Clinton confidant for more than 30 years, laid out his concerns about Hillary’s legal exposure in a wide-ranging interview. “This e-mail thing is spiraling out of control,” he said. “To paraphrase John Dean of Watergate fame, it’s a cancer on her candidacy. “Frankly,” he continued, “I am used to my advice on legal matters...

    If she gets elected, America is gonna need a lot of drapes . No wonder the Secret Service is so screwed up. They had to spend so much time waiting on insane aristocrats. The Beefeaters probably have it a lot easier dealing with an actual queen than our bunch does dealing with Hillary Clinton. Former agent Jeff Crane says, “Hillary would cuss at Secret Service drivers for going over bumps.” I suspect there were a lot of those bumps when Hillary was in the car. Within the White House, Hillary had a “standing rule that no one spoke to her...

    In a forceful speech to an influential gay rights group, Hillary Rodham Clinton on Saturday reaffirmed her support for gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender Americans just hours before Vice President Joseph R. Biden Jr., contemplating his own presidential run, was to address the organization. “I see the injustices and dangers that you and your family still face,” Mrs. Clinton told the gathering of members of the Human Rights Campaign. “I am running for president to end them once and for all.” Mrs. Clinton emphasized transgender rights, including urging the military to reverse its policy and allow transgender Americans to serve...

Weeks removed from the first Democratic debate, the presidential hopeful recently announced that she would be in favor of a no-fly zone. “I personally would be advocating now for a now-fly zone and humanitarian corridors to try to stop the carnage on the ground and from the air, to try to provide some way to take stock of what’s happening, to try to stem the flow of refugees,”...

    Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Rodham Clinton proposed Saturday that military records be amended to upgrade dishonorable discharges imposed on gay, lesbian and transgender military veterans. People drummed out of the armed services in years past for being gay should be able to get their records changed to reflect an honorable discharge, Clinton said. "Don't Ask, Don't Tell is over, but that doesn't change the fact that more than 14,000 men and women were forced out of the military for being gay, some long before Don't Ask, Don't Tell even existed," Clinton said, referring to the 1993 law that allowed gays...

Instead, we’re faced with Middle Eastern chaos, a rapidly expanding global terrorist force, and a refugee crisis that is spreading to every corner of the globe.

So the shooting in Roseburg, OR offered an opportunity to gin up his base and re-focus his domestic opponents on playing defense against gun control. By framing his goal as the extremely vague phrase “common sense gun control legislation,” he avoids specifics. And in fact, nobody on his team has yet come up with a concrete suggestion that would have saved the...

While Clinton has previously supported an assault weapons ban, this is the first time since launching her campaign that she indicated that she would take on the Supreme Court over gun issues. Although Clinton did not identify which Supreme Court case she disagreed with, she appeared to be criticizing the landmark 2008 ruling in District of Columbia v....

David Petraeus's criminal mishandling of secret government documents, a top Republican official argued Sunday in a national op-ed.

Petraeus pleaded guilty in April to a misdemeanor charge of mishandling classified intelligence, fined $100,000 and sentenced to...

"She probably used those devices to connect to both her private email server and her .gov systems — probably not at the same time, but her devices had access to both." Pollet said devices that move between a private account and a .gov account, such as Clinton's Blackberry phone, are particularly vulnerable to attack.

    White House Chief of Staff Valerie Jarrett admitted Wednesday that the White House had issued guidance to cabinet secretaries recommending they use government email for official business—guidance that then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton ultimately ignored.“Weren’t there guidelines from the White House to all cabinet secretaries to use government email?” MSNBC host Andrea Mitchell asked Jarrett at an event sponsored by the Aspen Institute.“Well, yes there were. Yeah, absolutely,” Jarrett said.“Obviously, we want to make sure we preserve all government records, so there was guidance given that government business should be done on government emails and that if you did use...

    Hillary Clinton was ordered by the White House to give somebody an ambassadorial appointment in Africa, according to a message sent on her private email in 2010.“He’s coming in to see me today about a potential ambassadorial appointment in Africa,” Clinton wrote to top aide Cheryl Mills. “The WH (and [Richard] Holbrooke) have told him that we will take care of him. What are our options for embassies next year?”The identity of the man that was to be taken care of by the State Department is redacted from the emails, but apparently it was slim pickings when it came to...

    More than 5 percent of the latest batch of emails from former Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton, released Wednesday, contain classified information — or twice the rate of the previous releases, raising tricky questions about whether the department is finding more secrets or being more thorough in screening the messages. All told, there are at least 400 messages that contain information the government now deems classified, out of nearly 12,000 emails released so far. But 214 of those messages came in the latest batch of 3,869 messages, for a classification rate of 5.5 percent.

    Leaked Audio: Hillary Clinton Calls at Private Fundraiser for Infrastructure Bank to Resemble Clinton Global Initiative Hillary Clinton told donors at a private fundraiser in New York last Thursday that she plans as president to create a “national infrastructure bank” modeled on the Clinton Global Initiative, according to a recording of her remarks obtained by the Washington Free Beacon. This was the first time that Clinton, who has long supported the formation of a government-controlled bank to invest in national infrastructure projects, cited the Clinton Global Initiative—the flagship arm of her family’s controversial foundation—as an investment model for her proposed...
