    Hillary Clinton was a White House monster when she was first lady. Thats the assertion in a new book called Crisis of Character by Gary Byrne, which hits stores Tuesday. One of Hillary the Monsters favorite targets was Vince Foster, according to Byrne, a member of the Secret Service who was stationed in the White House during the Clinton administration. Foster was the lawyer who relocated to Washington from Arkansas after his childhood pal, Bill Clinton, was elected president. Word circulated that (Hillary Clinton) berated (Foster) mercilessly I knew what it was like to be yelled at by superiors,...

    Democrats on the House Select Committee on Benghazi issued a report on Monday in which they said that Hillary Clinton was cleared of any responsibility for the deadly terrorist attack. The report was quickly condemned by Republicans as a partisan whitewash. We have been hampered in our work by the ongoing Republican obsession with conspiracy theories that have no basis in reality, says the 344-page report on the Sept. 11, 2012, attack in the Libyan city, during which Ambassador Christopher Stevens and three other Americans were killed.

    Firefighters and medics will take their first Trans 101 course on Tuesday, learning the correct way to interact with transgender people and even getting a lesson in what LGTBQI actually stands for, a city official said. The two-hour sensitivity training was launched in March by the city Commission for Human Rights after Mayor de Blasio signed an executive order allowing people to use any public bathroom or locker room they identified with, regardless of their sexual anatomy.

    The mainstream media have been hysterical this week in their response to Donald Trumps revocation of the Washington Posts campaign press credentials in response to coverage and headlines so unfair that the paper went back and changed them. Yet those same media outlets remained silent in 2008 when the Obama presidential campaign booted 3 major newspapers that had been writing unfavorably about the campaign off its press plane. Joe Concha of Mediaite remembers what happened 8 years ago, and contrasts the media response in the two instances: The year was 2008. The candidate had a big lead in the polls...

    If it is true that the best defense is a good offense, President Obama should be celebrating in the end zone now. Obviously furious over criticism that his anti-terror policies are weak and that the Orlando slaughter proves it, he went on a televised tirade to let America know hes mad as hell and not going to take it anymore. He laid waste to a field of straw men, cable-TV pundits and the always-evil partisan rhetoric, by which he means anyone who disagrees with him.

Joseph Dussich, tried for nearly a decade to get the city to buy his Mint-X bags, which he says deter rats and squirrels.

But this is Bill and Hillary were talking about. So its just the latest in a long list of disclosures about the slush fund that operates publicly as the Clinton Foundation. The foundation is deeply intertwined with the massive wealth theyve accumulated in the past 15 years even as its donors have themselves reaped enormous benefits.

    Donald Trump is a rookie candidate a potential superstar of vast promise, but making rookie mistakes. The nominee Republicans need for the fall campaign is often hard to make out amid his improvisations and too-harsh replies to his critics. New Yorkers vote Tuesday. What to do? Heres how we see it. Should he win the nomination, we expect Trump to pivot not just on the issues, but in his manner.

He has the potential the skills, the know-how, the values to live up to his campaign slogan: to make America great again. For those reasons, The Post today endorses Donald Trump in the GOP primary.

    Newly uncovered internal memos reveal the Obama administration knowingly exaggerated charges of racial discrimination in probes of Ally Bank and other defendants in the $900 billion car-lending business as part of a “racial justice” campaign that’s looking more like a massive government extortion and shakedown operation Obama’s Consumer Financial Protection Bureau has reached more than $220 million in settlements with several auto lenders since the agency launched its anti-discrimination crusade against the industry in 2013. Several other banks are under active investigation. That’s despite the fact that the CFPB had no actual complaints of racial discrimination — it was all...
  • NYT Celebrates Vulgar Left-Wing Turn of 'Newly Relevant' Rival NY Daily News

    The Times’ online headline, “Drop Dead? Not The Newly Relevant Daily News,” refers of course to it's rival's infamous 1975 headline: “Ford to City: Drop Dead.” The Daily News also rehashed its own headline recently to attack Ted Cruz for his crack about “New York values.” You guessed it: “Drop Dead, Ted.” That passes for “relevance” among the left and the NYT. Mahler took us inside the liberal hive mind, buzzing with giddy self-congratulation over yet another puerile attack on Republicans, while the Times dutifully reprinted the controversial Daily News covers that made liberals go giddy. On a recent afternoon,...

    I can see why you’d want a candidate strong on an issue you care a lot about, someone who ignores the accusations of bigotry that so often shut down serious debate on immigration. What I don’t get is why you think Trump is going to give you what you want. After all, four years ago, the guy was an immigration liberal, criticizing Romney for taking an excessively hard line. His positions on other major conservative issues, like abortion, are shamelessly opportunistic. His enthusiasm for bashing China is somewhat undercut by his enthusiasm for outsourcing the manufacturing of his own products...
  • Why the Koch brothers drive liberals nuts

    Jane Mayer of The New Yorker has a new book out: “Dark Money: The Hidden History of the Billionaires Behind the Rise of the Radical Right.” It’s mostly about those old devils the Koch brothers. Charles and David Koch are billionaires. They own a very big company. They also are very prominent philanthropists, giving hundreds of millions to cancer research, concert halls and other worthy causes. But what makes them hated and feared by progressives such as Mayer is their political work. They help fund some organizations and foundations, some purely educational, some partisan. To listen to the left, they...
  • Hillary's team copied intel off top-secret server to email (proves intent and conspiracy alert)

    The FBI is investigating whether members of Hillary Clinton’s inner circle "cut and pasted" material from the government's classified network so that it could be sent to her private e-mail address, former State Department security officials say. [Snip] "It takes a very conscious effort to move a classified e-mail or cable from the classified systems over to the unsecured open system and then send it to Hillary Clinton's personal e-mail account," said Raymond Fournier, a veteran Diplomatic Security Service special agent. "That's no less than a two-conscious-step process." He says it's clear from some of the classified e-mails made public...
  • Clintons keep making millions off pardon of criminal Marc Rich

    Fifteen years ago this month, on Jan. 20, 2001, his last day in office, Bill Clinton issued a pardon for international fugitive Marc Rich. It would become perhaps the most condemned official act of Clinton’s political career. A New York Times editorial called it “a shocking abuse of presidential power.” The usually Clinton-friendly New Republic noted it “is often mentioned as Exhibit A of Clintonian sliminess.” Congressman Barney Frank added, “It was a real betrayal by Bill Clinton of all who had been strongly supportive of him to do something this unjustified. It was contemptuous.” Marc Rich was wanted for...
  • Don’t be fooled by Bernie Sanders — he’s a diehard communist

    01/16/2016 8:52:05 PM PST · by TigerClaws · 77 replies
    As polls tighten and self-described socialist Bernie Sanders looks more like a serious contender than a novelty candidate for president, the liberal media elite have suddenly stopped calling him socialist. He’s now cleaned-up as a “progressive” or “pragmatist.” But he’s not even a socialist. He’s a communist. Mainstreaming Sanders requires whitewashing his radical pro-Communist past. It won’t be easy to do.

    The first shots exploded around 9:40 p.m. On Sept. 11, 2012, a group of local fighters, AK-47s in hand, burst through the fortified front gate of a US outpost in Benghazi, Libya. One very long night later, the diplomatic compound was engulfed in flames and a covert CIA base a mile away lay in ruins, partially reduced to rubble by mortar fire. Four Americans were dead, including Ambassador Christopher Stevens and two CIA members. What happened in between is covered in “13 Hours: The Secret Soldiers of Benghazi,” a new film from “Transformers” director Michael Bay in theaters Friday. The...

    Why does Donald Trump repeat talking points that he knows are untrue? During Tuesday night's debate, The Donald asserted that before 9/11, terrorists put their "friends, family, girlfriends" into planes, and "they were sent back -- for the most part to Saudi Arabia. They knew what was going on. They went home, and they wanted to watch their boyfriends on television." Trump made similar claims -- but that the 9/11 terrorists sent back their wives -- earlier this month. Washington Post fact-checker Glenn Kessler shredded the claim. Only two of the terrorists were married, Kessler reported, and neither wife had...
