    Rev up Air Force One, it's fundraising time again, along with symbolic moments and scenic views. In 48 hours President Obama departs the nation's capital for points west and an extended stay. Here's what's on the big travel agenda, beginning Wednesday: "Nine years after he announced his candidacy for president, the President will return to the place where his political career began by traveling to Springfield, Illinois. Now in the final year of his second term, the President looks forward to addressing the Illinois General Assembly about what we can do, together, to build better politics," the White House advises....

    Does this qualify as a “gaffe” when defined in classic Washington terms? Former Vermont Governor Howard Dean sat down with Andrea Mitchell on MSNBC to talk about the New Hampshire primary and seems to have lost control of his better partisan senses for a moment. Mitchell was quizzing him about all the money that Hillary Clinton has taken from special interest groups though her Super PACs and her paid speaking engagements, relating these bits of history to recent attacks coming from Bernie Sanders’ campaign. Dean is one of Clinton’s most vocal (and frequently incomprehensible) supporters and he didn’t take kindly...

    Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton defended her voting record Sunday in an interview on ABC's "This Week with George Stephanopoulos," saying she has never been influenced to vote one way or another by a donor. "I have never, ever been influenced in a view or a vote by anyone who has given me any kind of funding," she said. The defense came in the wake of criticism over Clinton's alleged ties to Wall Street from her rival for the nomination, Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders. "I'm happy to set this record straight and I really want to, once again, call out...

    Hillary Clinton had a chance to put to rest swirling questions about her paid speeches to groups such as Goldman Sachs during last week's final debate before Tuesday's primary in New Hampshire. She pointedly refused to take it. [Snip] But why did Clinton respond that way? There's the possibility - though I think it's very remote - that Clinton simply wasn't expecting the question and didn't want to commit to anything in the moment. [Snip] Why not release them, then? ... My guess is that in the speeches, Clinton acknowledges her various friends and acquaintances at Goldman Sachs (and other...

    Donald Trump is just one of many big name donors funding Terry McAuliffe's campaign to win the Virginia governor's mansion this fall, according to newly released financial disclosure reports - and he isn't even among the most generous givers. The New York real estate magnate cut McAuliffe a check for a whopping $25,000 in late March, but that's just a drop in the bucket compared to the largest single donation in McAuliffe's report - a $251,000 gift from billionaire media tycoon Haim Saban in January. That check narrowly bested a $250,000 contribution the following month from Steve Bing, another big...

[Democrat Daniel] Gecker's loss was the key setback in an election that tarnished McAuliffe's reputation as a political wizard. [McAuliffe] gambled big and lost."

During his emotional Colbert interview, Biden said he was still distraught over the death of his son, Beau, and did not seem up to the challenges of the presidential campaign trail. "I'd be lying if I said that I knew I was there," he said. At the...

Additionally, Planned Parenthood has contributed $679,596 directly to federal candidates, $676,885 of that to Democrats, in 2014.

The little-noticed update to the website of the Bill, Hillary, and Chelsea Clinton Foundation added contributions made in the first half of this year. But it also dramatically reduced listed contributions from billionaire Carlos Slim. Prior to the update, Slim was listed as a $1 million to $5 million contributor.

    July 31, 2015 (NewsBusters) -- In response to a series of incriminating under-cover videos from The Center for Medical Progress about the major abortion provider, organizations have been cutting ties -- or denying ties -- to Planned Parenthood. But where nonprofits are concerned, tax records keep the story straight. Between 2010 and 2013, no fewer than 966 individual organizations donated to Planned Parenthood. Of those, 31 gave more than $1 million each during those four years, totaling $374,199,059. The seven highest donors made up $324.8 million of that. These largest Planned Parenthood donors include Warren Buffett, George Soros, Bill Gates, and others....

    The reaction from around the Twitterverse to news that a university paid $65,000 for Chelsea Clinton to make a brief appearance in 2014 can largely be summed up in one word. What?! Tuesday morning, the Washington Post reported the University of Missouri at Kansas City was looking for a celebrity speaker to headline a gala luncheon, and initially reached out to Hillary Clinton. But when Clintons representatives quoted a fee of $275,000, officials balked. So they turned to the Democratic presidential front-runners daughter. As reported by the Post, the university paid $65,000 for Chelsea Clintons appearance.

    Grave incompetence or brazen dishonesty? Those are the only two conclusions one can reasonably come to after reviewing Hillary Clintons stunning Sunday interview on local New Hampshire TV. When WMUR local TV host Josh McElveen asked Clinton why her State Department greenlit the transfer of 20 percent of all US uranium to the Russian government, Clinton claimed she had no involvement in her own State Departments decision to approve the sale of Uranium One to Russia. I was not personally involved because that wasnt something the secretary of state did, said Clinton. The transfer of 20 percent of US uranium...

    SAN FRANCISCO President Obamas motorcade, 20 vehicles deep, wound through the Highland Park neighborhood Friday in Southern California and stopped at the crest of a small hill. Only the presidents custom black sport-utility vehicle continued, veering up a steeper street until it disappeared. Somewhere out of the view of reporters, Obama got out and entered a makeshift recording studio in the garage of Marc Maron, host of a popular podcast. WTF? That is actually the name of Marons show . But it was as good a question as any to ask about why Obama was there to begin with....

    - The $200,000 honorarium was the largest the Long Beach, California, organization had ever paid a public figure for an appearance - Normally, speakers donate much of that money back to the small, non-profit that has an annual operating budget of just $3 million - Former secretary of state redirected her check to the Clinton Foundation - which spends $8.1 million a year on travel alone - In 2007, when Bill Clinton headlined the event, he charged the group $150,000 and kept the money for himself Hillary Clinton reportedly charged a Boys and Girls Club chapter $200,000 for an appearance,...

    The crazy corrupt corporation known as Newark Watershed Conservation Development Corporation (NWC) picks up about $10 MILLION a year from taxpayers to run a shadow government that allegedly funnels largess into the pockets of pals of US Senator Cory Booker (D-NJ). But true to form, New England media lefties zip their lips while pulling SEND off of their keyboards. And did we expect anything else? Reformers like Jeff Tittel of the Sierra Club calls the NWC the Newark Watershed Development & Corruption Corp. Supposedly set up to run land holdings around northwest New Jersey reservoirs, Tittel says, the NWCDC was...

    For being a true conservative, Donald Trump sure has funneled a lot of cash to prominent liberal Democrats over the years. The billionaire media mogul has flirted with presidential politics before. But this time, hes finally going for it. Yesterday, Donald Trump officially announced that hes running for president. During a press conference at Trump Tower, the Donald declared that the nation needs someone to take the brand of the United States and make it great again. Mr. Trump knows something about rebranding. Hes done a lot of it over the past few years. On the conservative speaking circuit, Trump...

    While it has been an open secret for several years that Donald Trump was once a heavy Democratic donor, a deeper analysis of campaign records shows that the real estate billionaire’s contributions skewed even further left during the 2006 mid-term election, the crucial contest that put Harry Reid and Nancy Pelosi in power and arguably helped pave the way for Barack Obama’s political agenda.Between 1989 and 2010, The Donald gave $314,300 to Democratic groups and candidates and $290,600 to Republicans, according to a Daily Caller analysis of records maintained by the Center for Responsive Politics.But Trump’s donation gap was even...

    Hillary Clinton re-launched her floundering campaign Saturday on Roosevelt Island, formerly and fittingly known as Welfare Island. Clintons desperate effort to associate herself with everyday Americans contrasts starkly with the crooked elites with whom she and Bill normally cavort. In fact, the Clinton Foundation, Bill and Hillarys elaborate slush fund, includes numerous donors and even one-time board members with dodgy backgrounds, shady dealings, and even criminal convictions that should repel rather than lure a once and perhaps future president of the United States. Peter Schweizers meticulously researched new best-seller Clinton Cash (complete with 635 endnotes) delineates this ultimate power couples...

    Denny Hastert the former House speaker now indicted for violating regulations on bank withdrawals that were originally meant to snare drug dealers was a man of integrity according to his former House colleagues. By the sketchy standards of Illinois politics, that might well have been true. But his fall from grace should prompt other questions about how a former high-school teacher who held elective office from 1981 to 2007 could leave Congress with a fortune estimated at $4 million to $17 million. When he entered Congress in 1987, he was worth at most $275,000. Hastert was the...

    The super PAC supporting Hillary Clintons presidential bid is struggling to raise money and now expects to collect only about $15 million through the end of June, people familiar with the matter said Wednesday. The group, Priorities USA Action, is shaking up its senior staff in hopes of jump-starting a fundraising operation that, five weeks after Mrs. Clinton entered the presidential race, has garnered only about $5 million in hard commitments, two people familiar with events say.

    Within two weeks of Haitis January 2010 earthquake, the word had already gone out from the State Department that Bill Clinton would be in charge of U.S. reconstruction efforts. That means, one individual told me and I reported in a Jan. 25, 2010 column, if you dont have Clinton connections, you wont be in the game. The game, as my source called it, meant securing hundreds of millions of dollars in no-bid contracts from the State Departments U.S. Agency for International Development and grants from multilateral institutions like the InterAmerican Development Bank, which gets the bulk of its funding from...
