    The newly released financial files on Bill and Hillary Rodham Clinton's growing fortune omit a company with no apparent employees or assets that the former president has legally used to provide consulting and other services, but which demonstrates the complexity of the family's finances. Because the company, WJC, LLC, has no financial assets, Hillary Clinton's campaign was not obligated to report its existence in her recent financial disclosure report, officials with Bill Clinton's private office and the Clinton campaign said. Former president Bill Clinton uses a shell company called WJC, LLC to move money from his clients to his own...

    RUSH: Let's go to Hillary and Libya. Now, we all know about Mrs. Clinton's e-mail snafus and we all know about her problems, and we all know about Hillary's genuine general incompetence as secretary of state and the fact she didn't achieve much and the fact that all the relevant e-mails have supposedly been deleted and are gone is evidence of this, we think. Okay, so how do we nevertheless tie Mrs. Clinton to the boondoggle that's Libya? Benghazi's in Libya, for those of you in Rio Linda. And that's a boondoggle. It was a disaster. Four Americans dead.

    Of 20 nations that donated to the Foundation, 17 had more robust weapons transactions in the three fiscal years that State was led by Hillary than in the last three years of the previous administration. How do you convince a president who got elected in 2008 on an anti-war platform repudiating warmongering cowboy George W. Bush to ramp up arms deals to unsavory regimes in the Middle East? Slipping a fat envelope into the Clinton slush fund’s collection box couldn’t hurt. And evidently didn’t.Personally, I’m pretty excited to have every foreign-policy transaction the United States engages in through 2020,...

    Forbes ^ | Today | Robert W. Wood
    The Bill, Hillary, and Chelsea Clinton Foundation has admitted collecting $26.4 million in previously unreported fees from foreign governments and foreign and U.S. corporations for speeches. For tax purposes, who should be treated as the recipient of that money? We’ll come back to the question. As with all things Clinton, the control of the story has been impressive. Sure, the Foundation should have been clearer about this, says the narrative. But it does such incredibly important work on HIV AIDS and other global initiatives.

    Received wisdom about the 2008 financial crisis has not been faring well lately. Peter Wallison, a scholar at the American Enterprise Institute, demonstrates in a new book that the subprime housing boom was fostered mainly by federal housing politics and policy, not by the rampant "deregulation" that many have imagined out of whole cloth. Another revelation: The New York Fed staff, as we belatedly learned last year, prepared an analysis showing that Lehman at the time of its collapse was theoretically solvent after all... OK, what about "too big to fail"? Nobody has found an email from a CEO saying,...

    Ann Coulter is back, more fearless than ever. In Adios, America she touches the third rail in American politics, attacking the immigration issue head-on and flying in the face of La Raza, the Democrats, a media determined to cover up immigrants' crimes, churches that get paid by the government for their "charity," and greedy Republican businessmen and campaign consultants—all of whom are profiting handsomely from mass immigration that's tearing the country apart. Applying her trademark biting humor to the disaster that is U.S. immigration policy, Coulter proves that immigration is the most important issue facing America today.

    Cheryl Mills, who was the State Department’s counselor and chief of staff during the entirety of Hillary Clinton’s tenure, said in an email on November 13, 2012, that her colleagues were “on board” after a “come to” (Jesus?) meeting, in reference to classified congressional hearings that would be taking place later that week. Her correspondent was Philippe Reines, a longtime aide to Hillary Clinton who had asked how the “hearings”were going (perhaps meaning “briefings”?) The classified hearings were on the 15th and 16th. Of the newly released batch of Hillary Clinton emails, this one seems to be the most significant.

    **SNIP** Much like Clinton’s speech to Salesforce, the former secretary of state’s speech isn’t available online nor would ISRI give video upon request. The speech of ISRI’s 2015 convention speaker, former Secretary of Defense Robert Gates, appears on the company’s YouTube page, but Bill Clinton’s 2009 speech to the same group does not. But such is the case for almost all of Hillary Clinton’s paid speeches from 2014 — though most were given to massive audiences, almost none are available in their entirety online. What’s clear is that most, if not all, of the companies and organizations that hired Hillary...

    WASHINGTON — They use words like “historic” and “charismatic,” phrases like “great potential” and “million-dollar smile.” They notice audience members moved to tears by an American-dream-come-true success story. When they look at the cold, hard political math, they get uneasy. An incipient sense of anxiety is tugging at some Democrats — a feeling tersely captured in four words from a blog post written recently by a seasoned party strategist in Florida: “Marco Rubio scares me.”

    Potential GOP presidential candidate Donald Trump and his daughter have donated “at least $105,000 to the Clinton Foundation,” The Hill reported Thursday. Contributions, per the Foundation website, “advance the work of any part of the Clinton Foundation, including the Clinton Global Initiative.”That would be the same group behind the Clinton Global Citizen Award, presented to anti-gun billionaire Michael Bloomberg by Vice President Joe Biden for being the “most fierce and most effective advocate that we have on the matter of gun sanity.” And it’s hardly the first time Trump has come across as effectively bipolar on guns.“I love the NRA,...

In the first place, the painful realization that the communist governments, without exception, built societies that were very poor and brutal, from which people invariably tried to flee in desperation. All the communist experiments failed, regardless of the substrata on which they tried to erect their systems. The Germans, the Slavs, the Latin...

    Ireland became Saturday the first country in the world to legalize same-sex marriages by popular vote. Within the U.S., Maine, Maryland and Washington in 2012 were the first states to legalize such unions through popular votes. Meanwhile, 37 states and the District of Columbia recognize same-sex marriages, according to the National Conference of State Legislatures. A measure to legalize such unions via popular votes could be added to the ballots in the 13 other states during the 2016 general elections, when it conceivably could have the support of at least one presidential candidate, as IrelandÂ’s action motivated one White House...

    Since its creation in 2001, the Bill, Hillary and Chelsea Clinton Foundation has raised close to $2 billion from a vast global network that includes corporate titans, political donors, foreign governments and other wealthy interests, according to a Washington Post review of public records and newly released contribution data. The total, representing cash and pledges reported in tax filings, includes $262 million that was raised in 2013 — the year Hillary Rodham Clinton stepped down as secretary of state and began to devote her energies to the foundation and to a likely second run for president. The financial success of...

    Bill Clinton won the presidency in 1992 by running as a different kind of Democrat from previous nominees. Hillary Clinton, Anne Gearan of The Washington Post reports, is hoping to win the presidency in 2016 by running as the same kind of Democrat as the current incumbent. There's a certain logic in that. President Obama did win twice, while the five pre-Clinton Democratic nominees lost five of the six previous elections. But maybe it's too logical. There's also magic to presidential elections, something no arithmetic formula can capture. It's not clear that a 69-year-old Hillary Clinton in 2016 can inspire...

    After weeks of officials trying to explain why the Clinton Foundation is refiling it's taxes after "mistakes were made," new information published by the Washington Post shows at least $26 million was not disclosed properly. Where is the money from? More speeches of course. The Clinton Foundation reported Thursday that it has received as much as $26.4 million in previously undisclosed payments from major corporations, universities, foreign sources and other groups. The disclosure came as the foundation faced questions over whether it fully complied with a 2008 ethics agreement to reveal its donors and whether any of its funding sources...

    The State Department has released 296 emails from Hillary Clinton's tenure as secretary of state, in the first batch of emails to be made public. The emails, just a fraction of what the department has in its custody, show internal communications before and after the Benghazi terror attack in 2012. One email to Clinton, regarding one of then-U.N. Ambassador Susan Rice's TV appearances the Sunday after the attack, appeared to praise her for reflecting their "view" that the attack started "spontaneously." Despite this email,other guidance has emerged showing Clinton and others were warned shortly after the attack that it may...

Over at Foreign Policy this was hailed as a huge success. "Leading from behind" is an important element of this doctrine.

    CORAL GABLES, Fla. (AP) — Former President Bill Clinton defended his foundation's acceptance of donations from foreign governments on Saturday, pointing to the track record of his global philanthropy as Hillary Rodham Clinton nears an announcement on 2016 presidential campaign. In an interview at the Clinton Global Initiative University, the ex-president sought to address critics who have questioned the receipt of donations from foreign governments while the former first lady served in the State Department and after she departed in early 2013. "My theory about all of this is disclose everything and then let people make their judgments," Clinton told...

    Chelsea Clinton says she respects her parents now more than ever. The new mom, who gave birth to daughter Charlotte with husband Marc Mezvinsky last September, told “Live with Kelly and Michael” hosts Kelly Ripa and Michael Strahan that caring for her daughter helped changed her view of her famous parents. “I have always been so close to both my parents and I didn’t know that I could be even more grateful for them and respect them more, until I became a mom,” Clinton said Monday. “I thought about all the times, particularly my mother, worried about me. And now,...

    The New York Times totally threw shade at Bill and Hillary Clinton's son-in-law, Marc Mezvinsky. Matt Goldstein and Steve Eder wrote an article in The New York Times suggesting that Mezvinsky —who is married to Chelsea Clinton —had been able to gain access to investors with ties to the Clintons for the hedge fund he cofounded that has had "underwhelming returns."About a month ago, The Wall Street Journal published a report about the fund's underperformance since its inception. The Times' report focuses primarily on Mezvinsky and his role in fund-raising and strategizing for the fund. Back in 2011, Mezvinsky, now...

    Chelsea Clinton is no longer the innocent teen she was when she lived in the White House and reportedly called the Secret Service agents guarding her family with their lives “pigs.” She has signed on as a key part of her mother’s campaign for the presidency, and now she is fair game. Although her God-given looks are not generally worthy of mention, the excesses of Photoshopping are also fair game. As so often the case, Iowahawk (aka, David Burge) tweeted the best comment on her Elle cover: “The Hoover Dam of Airbrushing Projects.”

    Chelsea Clinton is opening up about life in the public eye, being a new mother and whether or not she would like to see her own mother become president in a new interview. Clinton, whose mother Hillary is expected to formally announce her presidential campaign this Sunday, said it is time the United States had a female leader. 'One of our core values in this country is that we are the land of equal opportunity, but when equal hasn't yet included gender, there is a fundamental challenge there that, I believe, having our first woman president—whenever that is—will help resolve,'...

    If the Clintons were to move back into 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue, the first daughter, Chelsea, would presumably take on the traditional responsibilities of the first lady, an expert on the White House tells Daily Mail Online. 'There is a social function to the first lady's role, and that will not go away,' C-SPAN co-CEO Susan Swain said. 'Diplomacy' is conducted through social settings, 'and it is important to have somebody in that role.' Several first daughters have filled the role of hostess in place of their mothers, throughout American history, Swain, the producer of C-SPAN's acclaimed series on America's first...

    Chelsea is so unpleasant, she’s causing high turnover at The Bill, Hillary and Chelsea Clinton Foundation. Since her arrival as vice-chairman in 2011, people left because she didn’t want them there. “She is very difficult,” says an insider. Chelsea has embraced all the trappings of a corporate CEO, with a personal staff almost as big as her father’s. “He has six. She has five." At her former employers, McKinsey management consulting firm and NBC, co-workers allegedly were told they couldn’t approach Chelsea. NBC paid Chelsea $600,000 a year. If someone wanted to talk to Chelsea, they had to go through...

    Recent revelations of significant financial ties between the Brookings Institution and Qatar’s government are raising new questions about the policy positions of the influential Washington think tank—including one top scholar’s writings about an al Qaeda-linked group, known as Ahrar al-Sham, that is funded by a terrorist financier linked to the Qatari royal family.The New York Times reported earlier this month that Qatar has pledged a $14.8 million, four-year donation to Brookings, making it the “single biggest foreign donor” to the think tank. That money will help finance Brookings’ Doha Center in Qatar and its project on U.S. relations with the...
