    The State Department's inspector general last year subpoenaed the Clinton Foundation for documents related to work that required approval from the Hillary Clinton State Department, making it now at least four investigations involving the Democratic presidential candidate being conducted by federal agencies.

    The chair of the Democratic National Committee, Debbie Wasserman Schultz, has had her thumb on the scale for Hillary Clinton, like the rest of the party establishment. When Hillary thought she was a shoe-in, they limited the number of debates and scheduled them in time slots where no one was watching. Now that Sanders is giving her a hard run, miraculously, new debates have been scheduled for prime time. Then, there is the Democratic Party's use of superdelegates, party office holders and insiders, designed specifically to keep top-down control of the nomination process, so that even a 22 point landslide...

    National Review ^ | 02/12/2016 | by BRENDAN BORDELON
    After her stunning collapse in New Hampshire on Tuesday, many expected Hillary Clinton to roll into the next presidential debate with guns blazing. But on Thursday night in Milwaukee, the once-prohibitive Democratic frontrunner delivered a low-key, almost lethargic performance against her surging opponent, Vermont senator Bernie Sanders. It's tempting to blame her sleepy showing on the stuffy, awkward performance of the PBS moderators. But her opponent showed up despite that, peppering Clinton with the usual attacks over Wall Street donations and throwing in some new ones on immigration. Sanders was better-versed on national security than in past debates. And he...

Clinton criticized presidential rival Bernie Sanders's plan for free college tuition as unworkable, saying it depended on Republican governors like Walker. "Sen. Sanders's plan really rests on making sure that governors like Scott Walker contribute $23 billion on the first day to make college free," Clinton said.

    An ideological construct that exploits envy and resentment for political advantage. Throughout this primary season, Hillary Clinton and self-proclaimed socialist Bernie Sanders have both been flogging the “crisis” of “income inequality,” which is “at the center of their campaigns,” according to CNN. Both have scourged the “greed” of the “1%,” called for higher taxes on the “rich,” and promised to expand and multiply government programs to rectify this injustice. Yet like other slogans progressives rely on, the idea of “income inequality” is an ideological construct, a statistical artifact that exploits envy and resentment for political advantage.

(Not that it matters, since they won’t tell you how many people voted anyway.) In any event, Clinton and Sanders were essentially tied. Then we headed over to New Hampshire with its 24 pledged Democrat delegates. Sanders blew Clinton’s doors off there, taking roughly 60% of the votes. So at this point the delegate race should be pretty...

    Republicans set a new turnout record Tuesday in New Hampshire’s primary, attracting more than a quarter of a million voters to the polls and offering evidence that most of the energy in the 2016 presidential race continues to be on the GOP side. Democrats saw a strong turnout, but their two-person race couldn’t recapture the magic of the 2008 battle between Hillary Clinton and then-candidate Barack Obama — a race that presaged Mr. Obama’s eventual cruise to victory in November.

    Bernie Sanders delivered the second-biggest rout in New Hampshire Democratic primary history last night, besting Hillary Clinton by 22 percentage points. That's important, because it hands him a crushing victory, lots of momentum and money to help him staff up for a potentially long fight against Clinton. And with that huge win, one might think that Sanders would end up with the majority of delegates. But Clinton may very well wind up with more of them (or at least be closer in the delegate count than the proportion of the vote total). Here's why: There were 24 delegates to...

What if, at the Democratic National Convention, Sanders has been able to build an overwhelming coalition of all of the traditional liberal special interest groups, but Hillary...with her super-delegates... is able to snatch away the nomination? Will there be an all out civil war on the left, or would they accept it and coalesce behind Her Thighness? Thoughts?

Charles and David Koch, the billionaire libertarian philanthropists and heavyweight political donors, have been at the center of the Democrats' "dark money" campaign finance battle in recent years. Democrats have charged that Republican politicians who receive funds from the Koch network are "beholden" to their political agenda. However, individuals who work at firms that actually do represent Koch interests have also poured money...

    FMR. GOV. JENNIFER GRANHOLM (D-MI): Young women do not want to be shamed into voting and that's very clear and nobody intended for that to happen. I think what they -- I'm from the next generation after, you know, Gloria and Madeline and we -- I've got their pictures on my wall, I mean, they are just -- they're total heroes. Of course they're going to say that we want to be able to see finally a woman as president after 227 years. But the Clinton campaign is saying not just any woman. We wouldn't say vote for Sarah Palin....

    Hillary Clinton spoke of being "knocked down" and having problems with young voters in a bitter concession speech after losing to Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) Tuesday night in the New Hampshire Democratic primary. "I don't know what we'd have done tonight if we'd actually won. This is pretty exciting," Clinton said to her crowd of supporters shortly after 9 PM Eastern Time, flanked onstage by husband Bill and daughter Chelsea, who did not speak. "I just want to say, I still love New Hampshire and I always will." "People are angry. But there's also hungry. They're hungry for solutions. What...

    Former president Bill Clinton suggested Sunday that his wife Hillary Clinton was not responsible for the security of the Benghazi consulate while she was secretary of state, claiming she had been absolved by a "very tough report" on the 2012 terrorist attack. "A non-partisan, very tough report on the Benghazi incident said there were serious holes in the way we provided for security, not just for the two State Department employees who lost their lives, one of them was a very close friend of ours, but for the two CIA contractors who were there trying to provide defense," Clinton said....

    There's no doubt that Hillary is the candidate of Wall Street. Even more dangerous, though, is that she is the candidate of the military-industrial complex. The idea that she is bad on the corporate issues but good on national security has it wrong. Her so-called foreign policy "experience" has been to support every war demanded by the US deep security state run by the military and the CIA. Hillary and Bill Clinton's close relations with Wall Street helped to stoke two financial bubbles (1999-2000 and 2005-8) and the Great Recession that followed Lehman's collapse. In the 1990s they pushed financial...

    After the ridiculously close squeaker in the Iowa caucuses, the state's Democratic Party said it couldn't release the raw vote totals for Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders. That simply isn't how they do business, party officials insisted. Even after they audited the results this week, Iowa Democratic officials would say only that Clinton won 49.84 percent of the vote and Sanders 49.59 percent, reducing her margin slightly to a quarter of a point. Sanders has called for the raw vote totals to be released. The state party says that's not the way it conducts the caucuses. And the press has...
