    Congressman Trey Gowdy (R-SC) who is leading the investigation into the Benghazi fiasco confirmed to America today that Hillary Clinton is indeed a slimy and likely criminal malcontent. It seems that Mrs. Clinton no longer has any of the emails she sent or received during her time as Secretary of State, but don't worry, unlike the folks at the IRS, her computer didn't crash... No, Hillary lost her emails the good ol' fashioned way. She DELETED them. ALL OF THEM. And she did this AFTER the State Department asked her to return all of her work documents, emails and other...

    This time, Bill Clinton is the one wearing the dress that grosses out America. The gal-loving former president has been “drag”ged into his wife’s likely bid for the White House by a Web site dedicated to her run — and whose wild new campaign videos declare, “Bill for First Lady” and depict him wearing a slinky red dress and heels. The viral video — produced by a PAC encouraging Hillary Rodham Clinton to enter the 2016 race — shows a male actor wearing a comically oversized Bill Clinton mask and women’s clothes and accessories including a handbag, pearls and high...

    WASHINGTON - Whitewater prosecutors have obtained from the attic of the late Vincent Foster's house a second set of Hillary Rodham Clinton's law-firm billing records, lawyers said today. The new records have fewer handwritten notations and fewer pages, but generally contain the same information as the set belatedly found in the White House in 1996. Nonetheless, the documents have become a focal point of recent grand-jury questioning in Arkansas as prosecutors press to wrap up their investigation of the first lady's legal work for a failed savings and loan owned by her Whitewater business partner. "You're sitting in the grand...

    The Tunisian desert region used as a location for the original "Star Wars" and as a tourist destination for fans of the film franchise is now reportedly crawling with a threat more insidious than marauding Sand People — ISIS terrorists. Particularly hard hit has been Tataouine, the Tunisian town that inspired George Lucas to name Luke Skywalker's home planet, Tatooine, and now a pit stop for wannabe jihadists headed to join ISIS in nearby Libya, CNN reported. Three men were arrested nearby the town that's just 60 miles from the Libyan border and arms caches were confiscated nearby, one of...

    The former head of the Defense Intelligence Agency on Sunday described President Obama's Middle East policy as one of "willful ignorance," saying the administration needs a clearer strategy for dealing with conflicts emerging across the region. Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn said during an interview on "Fox News Sunday" that recent developments in the Middle East are moving in a bad direction for the United States, with Iran "clearly on the march" to influence events in a "regional sectarian war." “At the end of the day, we have just this incredible policy confusion — never mind what our strategy is to...

    Behind the saga of Hillary Rodham Clinton’s personal email account and the messages said to no longer exist is the implication that she has something to hide. None of her critics – at least those among congressional Republicans pushing her to reveal more – have come right out and said she purposely destroyed politically-damaging evidence that could hamper any plans to run for president next year. **SNIP** “The Benghazi panel has already said it will bring Clinton in to testify at least twice – once privately about her email use while at State and at another public hearing on the...

    As President Barack Obama and Secretary of State John Kerry close in on a nuclear deal with Iran, it's worth remembering that the Bill, Hillary, and Chelsea Clinton Foundation received money from "a front for the government of Iran" called the Alavi Foundation. The front gave the Clintons $30,000 between April 2005 and March 2006, according to tax forms. This occurred years after law enforcement officials tied the group to Iranian radicals. “The center is funded by the New York-based Alavi Foundation, which law enforcement officials say is closely tied to the mullahs who dominate Iran,” the Washington Post reported...

It was the compromise of Blumenthal’s emails by the Romanian hacker Guccifer that in part led to journalists to discover Hillary’s private email account.

State Department Spokesman Jeff Rathke denied this had anything to do with Clinton, citing instead the State Department’s need to better manage the overwhelming number of Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) requests and requests for information from...

Only 26 percent in the poll of the adult population had a favorable view of Clinton, while 37 percent had an unfavorable opinion, and an astonishing 36 percent said they hadn't heard enough to form an opinion or were undecided. Because the poll sampled all adults, not just registered voters, the poll's political significance is limited. Much of the general public pays little attention to...

Strangely, feminists ignore the damning facts about how Hillary got where she is. Recently, she addressed 5,000 Silicon Valley business women — real career women.

    On Monday evening, mainstream media reporters reportedly gave Hillary Clinton a standing ovation after she joked about her private email scandal and took no questions from the press–at an event honoring excellence in journalism. According to a National Journal report, Clinton took no questions after her 20-minute speech in Washington, D.C., which prompted the Washington Post‘s Dan Balz, who won this year’s Robin Toner award for excellence in political reporting, to reportedly make Clinton an offer: “I am happy to yield my time back to you if you want to take some questions.” Time reported that “Clinton received a standing...

    The case for her in 2016 boils down to demographic symbolism. It is amazing how a simple question can cause a complex lie to collapse like a house of cards. The simple question was asked by Bill O’Reilly of the Fox News Channel, and it was addressed to two Democrats. He asked what has Hillary Clinton ever accomplished. The two Democrats immediately sidestepped the question and started reciting their talking points in favor of Hillary. But O’Reilly kept coming back to the fact that nothing they were talking about was an accomplishment. For someone who has spent her entire adult...

    It appears that those who voted for Barack Obama for president simply because he is black are now urging we vote for Hillary Clinton simply because she is a woman. At a recent public event, Clinton asked her Democrat supporters, "I suppose it's fair to say: don't you someday want to see a woman president?" My answer to that ridiculous remark is-'that would depend on the woman.' That woman should be as qualified as any male candidate but if they believe that Hillary is eligible than that means they plan to vet her as poorly as they did Barack Obama....

    At the White House Press Briefing began today, White House reporters had a question: Would former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton stop by the White House to visit with President Obama? (Snip) But spokesman Josh Earnest wouldn’t even acknowledge that the meeting was taking place. “I don’t have any additional details to share about the President’s schedule today,” he said, acknowledging that they had visited in the past. “I don’t have any meetings to share with you from here.” But the pair did meet this afternoon, without any press notification. After the meeting, however, Earnest sent White House reporters the...

    Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton took time to hang out with the press Monday night, joking with a room packed with national political reporters about their sometimes-testy relationship. "I'm well aware that some of you may be a little surprised to see me here tonight. My relationship with the press has been at times, shall we say, complicated,'" Clinton said to laughs at a dinner for the Robin Toner Program in Political Reporting in downtown Washington, D.C. "But I am all about new beginnings: A new grandchild, another new hairstyle, a new email account, a new relationship with the...
  • Hillary Can’t Type: Look To Huma’s And Cheryl’s Emails

    03/23/2015 5:47:44 PM PDT · by Hojczyk · 77 replies
    Don’t expect a gold mine of emails on Hillary’s private account. Why not? Because she doesn’t know how to type. That’s right. She writes everything out in longhand. Really. Anyone who has spent time in meetings with her knows about her endless yellow pads. So her emails will most likely turn out to be very short and quick. She wouldn’t spend a lot of time pecking out long letters. No way. That’s why the Benghazi Committee needs to also look very closely at the emails on private accounts that Hillary’s closest aides, Huma Abedin and Cheryl Mills, maintained. Anything more...

    Undaunted by an email scandal and congressional investigation, former Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton exuded wholehearted confidence Monday that she’ll win the White House as she publicly mused about hires for her administration. Speaking at a policy roundtable at a liberal Washington think tank, Mrs. Clinton hinted at a future job offer for Compton, California, Mayor Aja Brown. “Don’t be surprised if you get a call,” Mrs. Clinton said after praising the Democratic mayor’s anti-gang programs.“Maybe we’ll start not too far from here in a beautiful domed building, where we’ll get everybody in the same room and start that...

    President Obama met with former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton for about an hour at the White House on Monday as Clinton moves closer to launching her long-awaited presidential campaign. “President Obama and Secretary Clinton enjoy catching-up in person when their schedules permit," White House press secretary Josh Earnest said in a statement. "This afternoon they met privately for about an hour at the White House and discussed a range of topics."

    EXCERPT The roughly 300 emails from Mrs. Clinton’s private account that were turned over last month to a House committee investigating the attack showed the secretary and her aides closely monitoring the fallout from the tragedy, which threatened to damage her image and reflect poorly on the State Department. They provided no evidence that Mrs. Clinton, as the most incendiary Republican attacks have suggested, issued a “stand down” order to halt American forces responding to the violence in Benghazi, or took part in a broad cover-up of the administration’s response, according to senior American officials. But they did show that...

    Let the movement begin. Starting today, all good progressives should write it on their Starbucks latte cups: Run Liz Run. And don’t stop there. Facebook profile pics, Twitter avatars, the dirty windows of your Priuses, Subarus and Range Rovers — even the Burberry sweater your Maltese named “Chloe” wears — take a Sharpie to that Shar-Pei and scrawl “Run Liz Run.” Let’s “start the conversation,” as well-meaning liberals love to say. Please. Let’s start the “Liz Warren for President” conversation. Now. GOP challengers can begin and end that conversation with an easy concept: “Hypocrisy.”
