  • ‘Shocking and Weird’: Rachel Maddow Rips Start of Bill Clinton’s DNC Speech

    Uh-oh: looks like I’ve had something of a mind-meld with Rachel Maddow . . . During Bill Clinton’s DNC speech tonight, I tweeted “the spectacle of Bill Clinton telling the romantic story of how he met, wooed and married Hillary is deeply creepy.” When the speech ended, Rachel Maddow, on MSNBC, called the top of the speech “shocking and weird,” describing the beginning of the speech as “controversial.” Maddow was miffed that Clinton spoke of “a girl,” “the girl” and built “her whole political story for the whole first half of the speech around her marriage to him.” View the...

    Hillary Clinton exchanged nearly two-dozen top secret emails from her unsecured, private server with three senior aides, the State Department revealed in documents released to VICE News late Friday. The 22 emails were sent and received by Clinton in 2011 and 2012. Clinton discussed classified information with her deputy chief of staff, Jacob Sullivan, her chief of staff, Cheryl Mills, and Deputy Secretary of State William Burns. A majority of the top secret emails are email chains between Sullivan and Clinton. This is the first time the State Department has revealed the identities of the officials who exchanged classified information...

    Hillary Clinton has failed to hold a single press conference in 2016. Clinton took questions from the media traveling with her campaign once, in March. But she hasn’t held an organized press conference in at least seven months. On Saturday Hillary did sit down with FBI investigators for three-and-a-half hours on her illicit use of a private email server. As Amanda Carpenter pointed out on CNN this weekend– Hillary Clinton has spent more time taking questions from the FBI than reporters this year.

The funds have lost tens of millions of dollars predicting that bailouts of the Greek banking system would pump up the value of the country’s distressed bonds. One fund, exclusively dedicated to Greek debt, suffered near-total losses. Clinton stepped down as secretary of state in 2013 to run for president.

Obviously, it wasn’t a social visit as Lynch publicly claimed, but an arrangement clarifying how the powerful Clinton dynasty would be kept above the law in the face of heated publicly scrutiny as Hillary Clinton seeks the presidency. Instead, the Justice Department filed a motion that would keep from release thousands of emails potentially exposing conflicts of interest on the part of the Clinton Foundation and overlapping state department officials, such as Hillary’s chief of staff Huma Abedin.

    The political warfare campaign, designed by the OIC and executed by politically partisan front-organizations, has had a profound effect on United States national security. In September 2011, the Obama administration carried out an unprecedented wide-scale review of all counter-terrorism training for local and federal law enforcement and all branches of the military. All existing training materials were reviewed, a large number of slides decks were purged, and many national security experts were disallowed from further training, some even serving within the U.S. government, including the FBI. All counterterrorism training must now be vetted by an anonymous review panel, and clear...

    Maybe they don’t want Bill. Prior to an Indiana campaign appearance by Bill Clinton, some singers warming up the crowd tried to lead a “We want Bill” chant. They struggled to get any sort of reaction from the audience.

    WASHINGTON, March 29— The White House said today that in 1978 Hillary Rodham Clinton invested $1,000 in commodities futures and that the investment grew in 10 months of trading in the notoriously volatile market into a gain of nearly $100,000. Seeking to dispel suggestions that the trades were risk-free and improperly arranged by an Arkansas lawyer who represents one of the state's most powerful companies, the White House issued a statement this afternoon that said the First Lady had put up her own money and that she bore all of the financial risks in a marketplace where three out of...

    WASHINGTON, Jan. 4— A memorandum by a former Presidential aide depicts Hillary Rodham Clinton as the central figure in the 1993 travel office dismissals, a politically damaging episode that the aide said had resulted from a climate of fear in which officials did not dare question Mrs. Clinton's wishes. The newly released draft memorandum, written by David Watkins, the former top administrative aide at the White House, also sharply contradicts the White House's official account of Mrs. Clinton as merely an interested observer in the events that led to the dismissal of the White House travel staff and their replacement...

    Chelsea Clinton: Gun Control Opportunity on Supreme Court With Scalia Gone Chelsea Clinton said Thursday at an event in Maryland that there is now an opportunity for gun control legislation to pass the Supreme Court since Justice Antonin Scalia passed away. “It matters to me that my mom also recognizes the role the Supreme Court has when it comes to gun control. With Justice Scalia on the bench, one of the few areas where the Court actually had an inconsistent record relates to gun control,” Clinton said. “Sometimes the Court upheld local and state gun control measures as being compliant...

Video published by Reuters shows the Clintons posing for photos inside their precinct, as well as “greeting voters” outside the door. Campaign signs and stickers are clearly visible.

    Hillary Clinton claimed surprising ignorance of a bill she should be intimately acquainted with as a former secretary of state and New York senator. ABC News anchor George Stephanopoulos brought up the legislation introduced by Democratic Sen. Chuck Schumer, which would allow 9/11 victims to sue state sponsors of terror for the attack that took nearly 3,000 lives in 2001. "Your senior senator here in New York, Chuck Schumer has sponsored a bill backed by the 9/11 families that would give them the right to sue state sponsors of terror in federal court," he said Sunday on "This Week." "Now,...

    Asked about her experiences learning about LGBT issues at a forum in downtown Manhattan, Chelsea Clinton struck a deeply personal note. "I think the first time I heard the word 'gay' was when one of my mom's law partners killed himself because he couldn't figure out how to come out to his family," Ms. Clinton said, adding that she was 7 years old at the time. . . . She went on to explain that she had first heard of mental illness when a neighborhood friend and her family had been killed by the friend’s father in a murder-suicide

    The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel unleashed a devastating attack on Democratic frontrunner Hillary Clinton over her record against transparency in government. This issue goes far beyond the current email scandal, to Clinton's dealings in Arkansas before her husband ran for president.The Journal Sentinel zeroed in on public transparency in its attack on Clinton: Her horrible track record on transparency raises serious concerns for open government under a Clinton administration — so serious we believe they may disqualify her from public office. We hope Wisconsin voters give this issue the consideration it deserves when they go to the polls on Tuesday. The...
