    New talk of President Trump possibly pardoning himself drew pushback from Republicans on the Sunday show circuit this week. Both Congressional Republicans and the president's attorney, Rudy Giuliani, urged caution that a self-issued pardon could be politically problematic for Trump. But Giuliani said the president “probably” has the power to give himself a pardon even though doing so would prove to be difficult. “I think the political ramifications of that [pardoning] would be tough. Pardoning other people is one thing. Pardoning yourself is another,” Giuliani told ABC’s “This Week.” Etc...
  • ACLU Warns Trump: Pardoning Arpaio Would Be ‘Presidential Endorsement of Racism’

    If President Trump pardons former Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio, it “would be an official presidential endorsement of racism,” the American Civil Liberties Union said on Monday. Arpaio, now 85 years old, is famous for his tough stand on illegal immigration. He was convicted two weeks ago of criminal contempt for violating a court order instructing him to stop detaining people suspected of being in the country illegally. Fox News interviewed Trump on Sunday at his club in Bedminster, N.J. “I am seriously considering a pardon for Sheriff Arpaio,” Fox quoted the president as saying. “He has done a lot...

    Click here to find out more! When asked about the significance of her daughter, Chelsea, marrying Marc Mezvinsky, who is Jewish, and thus being married in an interfaith union, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton responded, “Over the years, so many of the barriers that prevented people from getting married, crossing lines of faith or color or ethnicity have just disappeared.” True, the barriers have disappeared, but serious difficulties remain. While some scholars argue that mixed-faith unions “serve as a refiner’s fire” that make the relationships stronger, the statistical evidence indicates this is all too frequently not the outcome. The American...

    A Democratic fundraiser who has raised $1 million for presidential candidate Hillary Clinton says he has done nothing wrong and has asked no favors in return, but Norman Hsu didn't mention that he's a wanted man. A California prosecutor says Hsu pleaded no contest to grand theft, was sentenced to three years in prison and then disappeared, The Los Angeles Times reported Wednesday. Click here to read the story in The Los Angeles Times. "He is a fugitive," Ronald Smetana, who handled the case for the state attorney general, said in an interview with the newspaper. "Do you know where...
  • Pardon Me Hillary

    Remember Jimmy Carter's buffoonish brother Billy, known for "Billy Beer" and dealing with Libyan dictator Gadhafi? Well, Hillary Clinton has a brother, too, and, as reported in the Washington Times, Anthony D. "Tony" Rodham was named recently in an Alexandria, Virginia bankruptcy court filing that could boomerang on Hillary herself as she prepares her presidential run. The Tony Rodham story, in which he is accused of being paid and loaned hundreds of thousand of dollars to lobby for presidential pardons, could resurrect numerous Clinton scandals. The media's blackout of this story demonstrates how Senator Clinton is once again benefiting from...

  • Hillary wild over Bill's new blond? (Paper claims Canadian conservative "friendly" with Bubba)

    After a steady stream of mostly flattering headlines, Conservative leadership candidate Belinda Stronach received some unwelcome attention Friday in the form of a supermarket tabloid front page that blared: Hillary Screams Divorce Over BILL'S NEW BLOND. The headline in the Globe weekly, a reference to Stronach's friendship with former U.S. president Bill Clinton, is accompanied by a full-page photo of the two walking together into a Toronto charity event last year. The innuendo-filled article suggests Hillary Clinton, a New York senator and the wife of the former president, is upset that rumours of an amorous liaison between her husband and...
