    As the Clinton/Kaine ticket gets under way, much is known of Hillary Clinton on the national scene: Her history as former First Lady, former senator, and former secretary of state — and the scandals which accompanied each of those positions — has been well reported and is well known, if not well accepted. Tim Kaine (shown), on the other hand, is another matter. His political career has been confined to Virginia and so — with rare exception — has his media coverage. Who is Tim Kaine? Michael Timothy Kaine’s political career began in the 1980s at Harvard when he met,...

    The signs are all there: bizarre coughing fits, falls, failure to return to a debate stage on time, requiring help up stairs, and what many describe as seizures and blackouts. Hillary Clinton is running what may be a truly historic campaign, as she is possibly the most unhealthy major party nominee to ever seek our nation’s highest office. Yet the media are predictably incurious about the true state of her health as they and her handlers try to drag her across the November 8 finish line — even though electing her could leave us with a President Tim Kaine.The latest...

Corroboration of the resume line comes from a 2014 article in a local paper in Greenwood, Miss., written by a high school classmate who recalled how Kaine, as a “skinny Irish Catholic kid with wavy dark hair,” took up cheerleading in their senior year.

    Does he feel the same way about Clinton's enabler? Once upon a time, the most powerful man in the world had an affair with a young intern. To this day, Bill Clinton’s dalliance with Monica Lewinsky represents precisely the collision between power, gender, and sexual politics that feminists are always carping about. A charismatic man abused his position and took advantage of an innocent. ...At least, that would be the story if Bill was a Republican. Since he’s a Democrat, feminists (and their allies in the media) excused the affair, the lies that followed, and his commission of perjury. He...

    Hillary is at the top of the ticket. That in and of itself should be reason enough to vote for Trump. Hillary is after all a greedy, power hungry, compulsive liar. But how does her choice of Virginia Senator Tim Kaine help the ticket? Kaine has shown an affinity for embracing Islamists. And with the recent influx of thousands of Muslims into the United States, Kaine is not a choice this country can live with. In 2007, Kaine was governor of Virginia and chose Muslim American Society (MAS) President Esam Omeish to be on his Immigration Commission. This selection was...

    Democrat vice presidential candidate Sen. Tim Kaine says the United States is far behind some Muslim countries in treating women equally because it is “below the global average” in the percentage of women in elected office. Kaine said in a speech at a rally in Fayetteville, North Carolina Tuesday: It took 144 years before women even got the right to vote in this country. What were we thinking when we said equality mattered, but no. One hundred and forty-four years. It took us that long to say in 1920, to say women get a right to vote. And now we’re...

    Democratic nominee for president Hillary Clinton released her 2015 tax return on her campaign website on Friday. The campaign also released 10 years worth of returns for running mate Sen. Tim Kaine and his wife, Anne Holton. The records show that during the past 10 years, Kaine and Holton paid a combined effective tax rate (described as federal, state and local taxes) ranging from 18.7 percent in 2009 – Kaine’s final full year as governor – to 29.1 percent in 2011. For the couple’s most recent return, for 2015, they paid a combined effective tax rate of 25.6 percent. For...

    A look at the philosophy and agendas of the Democrat VP candidate. When Hillary Clinton picked Virginia Senator Tim Kaine as her VP running mate, the media largely portrayed him as a middle-of-the-road candidate who would give the Democrat ticket a centrist orientation. The Washington Post cited Kaine's “relatively moderate persona.” USA Today said he “is considered a safe pick — a swing-state moderate who appeals to independent voters.” And the New York Times referenced Kaine's “credentials as a moderate.” Nothing could be further from the truth. Kaine strongly favors government-enforced affirmative-action policies designed to favor nonwhites and women in...

Nearing the end of his first year, he walked into the dean’s office and announced that he was going on a...

Kaine’s record on the Islamic threat here in America is far, far worse than that. In exchange for campaign contributions, he appointed a radical jihadi to the Virginia Immigration Commission.

Still, Dershowitz maintained that the Clinton-Kaine ticket was “far better for America and for Israel” then the Donald Trump and Mike Pence ticket. Dershowitz also sounded off about the decision by Kaine and other prominent democrats to support the international nuclear deal with Iran.

    The media are giving their official blessing to Hillary Clinton’s choice of Tim Kaine, praising him as a calm, experienced and slightly dull guy who can help her govern. What they are not doing is picking the Virginia senator apart, and highlighting his disagreements with the nominee, which marked the coverage of Donald Trump’s selection of Mike Pence. I happen to think that both Kaine and Pence are solid and serious choices who share some similarities, as both are religious and make little attempt to be flashy. But different media standards seem to apply.

    Kaine: The Face of the Democrats’ Dangerous Foreign Policy Priorities A telling pick for the Clinton VP post. July 25, 2016 Joseph Klein    Hillary Clinton settled on Virginia Senator Tim Kaine to be her running mate.  Senator Kaine’s self-effacing description of himself is “boring,” a trait that Hillary appears to relish. “I love that about him,” she told CBS News. Hillary also was looking for someone with knowledge of national security issues. Senator Kaine serves on the Senate Foreign Relations Committee and Arms Services Committee. What she really found in Senator Kaine is a running mate who epitomizes...

    The Hill ^ | 07/23/2016 | Mike Lillis
    The moderate Democrat has backed abortion restrictions; supported fast-track authority for a controversial Pacific Rim trade deal; and just last week joined a push to deregulate some of the nation’s largest banks — all positions that are anathema to the liberals being wooed by the Clinton team heading into November.

    Israel Matzav ^ | 7/25/16 | Carl in Jerusalem
    I'm sure you'll all be shocked to hear that Tim Kaine, Hillary Clinton's Vice Presidential nominee, is a longtime favorite of Saudi and Iranian funded J Street, which favors cutting up Israel piece by piece. On Capitol Hill, Senator Kaine, as a member of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, has consistently advocated the need for a two-state solution to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict as the only way to ensure that Israel can survive and flourish as a Jewish and democratic state and that Palestinians can live with independence and dignity. He was also a leader in the successful effort to...
  • Listen To Tim Kaine’s “I’m Conservative” Radio Ads From 2005

    At a rally introducing her new running mate, Virginia Sen. Tim Kaine, Clinton declared the senator was a “progressive who likes to get things done.” Kaine has a liberal record as a senator — but when he was running for governor of Virginia in 2005, he brandished his conservative beliefs on “issues of personal responsibility.” The ads can be seen and downloaded on his gubernatorial election page. In one radio, Kaine declares his social conservatism on issues like same-sex marriage and parental consent for abortion, and banning late-term abortion. (Kaine’s position overall has been that he personally opposes abortion as...

    The Washington Post's Monkey Cage ^ | July 22, 2016 | Kyle C. Kopko and Christopher J. Devine
    We finally know who the major-party vice-presidential nominees are – Sen. Timothy M. Kaine of Virginia and Gov. Mike Pence of Indiana. Not surprisingly, much “veepstakes” speculation leading up to these announcements centered on the usual factors considered to be electorally advantageous: geography and demography. But much of what you’ve been told about the importance of those usual factors is wrong. Based upon the available empirical evidence, it’s not at all clear that these candidate characteristics will have a significant effect on voters. It’s true that voters may like a running mate more because he or she comes from the...
