    WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Billionaire Donald Trump has taken a commanding lead in the race for the 2016 U.S. Republican presidential nomination with the support of 25 percent in a Reuters/Ipsos poll, giving him a double-digit advantage over nearest rival Jeb Bush. The poll shows Bush, the former Florida governor, trailing at 12 percent. It is a huge jump for Trump, who announced his candidacy for the November 2016 election six weeks ago - and this despite the criticism political rivals leveled at him for remarks this month belittling the military service of Senator John McCain, the party's candidate in 2008....

    PHILADELPHIA (CBS) — Author Ronald Kessler defends secret service agents and makes some sensational claims about former Presidents in his new book, The First Family Detail: Secret Service Agents Reveal the Hidden Lives of the Presidents. Kessler told Chris Stigall on Talk Radio 1210 WPHT that the recent struggles of the agency detailed in the media is more the fault of management culture than individual agents. “The culture that has led to this corner-cutting, it’s a culture within the management, not among the agents.

    Has there been a Rose Mary Woods at work in Hillary Clinton’s management of her e-mails? The State Department insists that they have made public all of Hillary’s e-mails pertaining to the security of the Benghazi consulate and the Libya mission from 2012. If that’s true, The Daily Beast’s Alexa Corse and Shane Harris report, then no one on Hillary’s team — including the Secretary of State herself — bothered to communicate for two months about the rise in violence in the spring that precipitated the attack on the consulate itself at the end of the summer: Among the...

    Joe Biden has dreamt of this moment. Hillary Clinton’s campaign is in free-fall and Republicans are busily re-enacting Lord of the Flies. After a lifetime of striving and six years as Loyal Number Two, the door has inched open for Biden to run. Joe Biden is popular, has ample name recognition and most likely the backing of the Obama White House. Moreover, he is liberal to his core, but does not alarm big money Democrats the way Elizabeth Warren might. Biden has a shot and could be extremely dangerous to the GOP. Hillary Clinton’s polls are crashing. The once inevitable...

    Hillary Clinton thinks quarterly earnings reports are bad. She believes something called “short termism” from activist investors like Carl Icahn is the root of all economic evil. And therefore, according to Hillary, if we all just focused on the long term by jacking up capital-gains taxes, the country would return to those economic halcyon days when she and her husband were running things out of the White House. At least that’s what Clinton proposed Friday in a speech at NYU, in which she strained to sound populist about Wall Street lest she get out-demagogued by Bernie Sanders or Elizabeth Warren....

    Just hours after Hillary Clinton unveiled her presidential campaign's push to solve global warming through an aggressive carbon-cutting plan, she sauntered up the steps of a 19-seat private jet in Des Moines, Iowa. The aircraft, a Dassault model Falcon 900B, burns 347 gallons of fuel per hour. And like all Dassault business jets, Hillary's ride was made in France. The Trump-esque transportation costs $5,850 per hour to rent, according to the website of Executive Fliteways, the company that owns it.

Should the issue still be alive in January 2017, however, then Clinton will say what her position is. "If it's undecided when I become president, I will answer your question," Clinton said. That answer is sure to rile environmentalists who have...

According to a CNN/ORC poll released Monday, 95 percent of registered voters believe it very or extremely important for the presidential candidate elected in 2016 to be honest and trustworthy. The enthusiasm for this characteristic is consistent across demographics, and significant majorities of both Democratic and Republican voters–95 percent and 97 percent, respectively–agree honesty is an important characteristic for the incoming commander-in-chief.

A Gallup poll released Friday demonstrates that the share of Americans with a favorable view of Clinton has declined from 48 percent in April when she first announced her presidential campaign to 43 percent today. Meanwhile, Sanders is enjoying an incredible surge; the Vermont senator’s favorable rating has doubled since Gallup tested it in March, jumping from 12 to 24 percent. Unfortunately for Clinton, her unfavorable rating has been rising. The share of Americans holding...

    A quick recap: Hillary Clinton, as Secretary of State, violated guidelines from the National Archives and her own State Department by using her own private email server for professional correspondence, and then destroying whatever messages she deemed destructible. At first Clinton claimed that she needed a single non-governmental email account for "convenience," because she only had one phone. That claim turned out to be provably false. Next, she claimed that it didn’t matter much, because "The vast majority of my work emails went to government employees at their government addresses, which meant they were captured and preserved immediately on the...

    Since the issue of classification has emerged in the past day or so again, it’s worth remembering just how important it is for national security. This news item from the Hartford Courant in Connecticut demonstrates just how seriously officials are supposed to protect classified material and systems. The Department of Justice has charged a former Navy submariner with multiple crimes involving his retention of cell-phone pictures of classified systems on his boat. Former machinist’s mate Kristian Saucier faces up to 30 years in prison after serving five years in the Navy (via ChuckJ on Twitter): The FBI says a...

    Hillary Clinton accepted on Friday an invitation to testify before the House Select Committee on Benghazi in October. Chairman Trey Gowdy asked Clinton to appear before the committee earlier this week, according to campaign spokesman Nick Merrill. Merrill also disputed media reports that Clinton had handled classified information improperly on her private email server, which prompted two inspectors general to refer the matter to the Justice Department for a possible criminal investigation. "Friday began with the printing of a story that was false," Merrill said in a statement. "Entities from the highest levels of two branches of government have now...

    "Clearly I'm not asking people to vote for me simply because I'm a woman," presidential candidate Hillary Clinton said in West Columbia, South Carolina on Thursday. "I'm asking people to vote for me on the merits. And I think one of the merits is I am a woman and I can bring those views and perspectives to the White House."
  • Hillary’s Inconceivably Stupid Capital-Gains Tax Scheme

    The worst sectors of the worst recovery since World War II are business investment in new plants and equipment and new business start-ups. These are the biggest job-creators, and their slump is a key reason for the sub-par labor recovery, with low participation rates and high numbers of involuntary part-time workers. So if investment is the problem, what does Hillary Clinton go out and do? She proposes jacking up the tax on investment. It’s almost inconceivably stupid. In her latest economic speech, Clinton proposes doubling the capital-gains tax rate on the profit made from asset sales (stocks, bonds, real estate)...

    Mayor de Blasio is a big fan of presidential hopeful Bernie Sanders — because the Vermont senator is a proud “Democratic socialist.” [Snip] De Blasio was quick to correct CNN’s Carol Costello after she called Sanders a “socialist,” telling her the senator is a “Democratic socialist.” “I think there’s a lot to like in that title,” he gushed.

    Complete Headline: ‘BLACK LIVES MATTER’: Hillary Clinton addresses nation’s racial inequality in meeting with South Carolina Democrats Hillary Clinton declared that "black lives matter" in South Carolina Thursday, as she repeatedly stressed that endemic racism must be tackled by government. "This is not just a slogan, this should be a guiding principle," she told a gathering of 400 local Democrats, many of them mayors and many of them African-American. "We have to also acknowledge we have some serious problems with race and justice and systemic racism which unfortunately is all too often present." [Snip] Clinton has been focusing heavily on...

    Via the Weekly Standard, where were you the day Hillary’s campaign imploded? No, I kid. Drudge was pushing this earlier because the idea of lefty infighting over whether their nominee-in-waiting is a racist or not is simply delicious. Spoiler: She is racist, or at least the left used to think so. (A few of them still do.) Now that their hold on power depends upon her being absolved, though, absolution is freely granted via the memory hole. She’ll be given a pass on this partly for that reason and partly because her admission about fear of black men in hoodies...

    The inspector general for the intelligence community has informed members of Congress that some material emailed by Hillary Clinton from her private server contained classified information but because it was not identified that way, it is unclear if Clinton realized she was potentially compromising classified information, according to a spokeswoman for the IG’s office.

    An Inspector General review of emails in Hillary Clinton’s inbox found at least four instances where information she received should have been considered secret at the time she received it. The matter has now been referred to the FBI. The Wall Street Journal reports that the Inspector General only looked at a small sample of Hillary’s inbox, just 40 emails. Of those 40, four were found to have information classified “secret.” A spokesperson for the IG told the WSJ the emails “were classified when they were sent and are classified now.” Though the remainder of Hillary’s email has not been...
