    The new, improved Hillary Clinton gave a speech that was treated as if it was the official opening of the Hillary for President campaign. The speech was in northern California at an event called The Lead On Conference for Women in Silicon Valley. According to the Washington Post, she was paid about $300,000 for the appearance. Unlike many of my compatriots, I do not have a problem with Secretary Clinton knocking down $300,000 for a speech. I was not in the running to give remarks at the Lead On Conference for Women in Silicon Valley and, assuming the LOCWSV raised...

    The Wall Street Journal reported this past week that the Bill, Hillary, and Chelsea Clinton Foundation has quietly dropped its ban on foreign contributions and is accepting donations from the governments of “the United Arab Emirates, Saudi Arabia, Oman, Australia, Germany, and a Canadian government agency promoting the Keystone XL pipeline.” The Journal’s conclusion: Since 2001 “the foundation has raised at least $48 million from overseas governments.” Needless to say, the gargantuan troll-like conflict of interest that arises as soon as the foundation of the leading candidate for the presidency of the United States begins accepting money from overseas is...

    Former President Bill Clinton was furious when a pro-Hillary Clinton group spoke out during New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie’s (R) “Bridgegate” scandal, according to a new excerpt from the paperback version of HRC: State Secrets and the Rebirth of Hillary Clinton being released this week. The episode recounted by authors Amie Parnes of The Hill and Jonathan Allen of Bloomberg News highlights the former president’s continued presence as a powerful force in Hillary Clinton’s political circle. ADVERTISEMENT It also emphasizes a significant danger for Hillary Clinton: that differences and competitions among those close to her could torpedo her expected 2016...

    Do You Remember Bill Clinton's Bimbo Eruption in 1992-1998? First of all, the mainstream media did not tell the full story of all the sex allegations against Clinton during his presidency. The cases that received MSM publicity were those of Monica Lewinsky, Jenifer Flowers, Paula Jones, Kathleen Willey, Juanita Broaddrick and Elizabeth Ward Gracen. These cases were a mere 5 percent of the allegations made. The other 95 percent did not receive MSM publicity. One tabloid at that time, claimed that Clinton produced illegitimate children, an allegation the MSM ignored. The New York Post of February 14, 2015 has even...

    Former President Bill Clinton took a romantic jaunt in 2002 to convicted pedophile pal Jeffrey Epstein’s “orgy island” with “two young girls” from New York, according to a shocking new interview. Virginia Roberts, who’s accused Epstein of turning her into a “sex slave” at age 17 and forcing her to sleep with his powerful friends, claimed Clinton stayed in one of the many villas on Epstein’s US Virgin Islands estate — where group sex was a “regular occurrence.” “I remember asking Jeffrey, ‘What’s Bill Clinton doing here?’ kind of thing, and he laughed it off and said, ‘Well, he owes...

Were you ever that thin?’ (eliciting thunderous laughter) and he said yes, he was, that they were dodging so many bullets in droves they all used to be thin.” As he continued to speak, he got decidedly more serious. “If you haven’t yet, go see the movie Selma,” he insisted, “and you will see the enormous pressures imposed on the King family and...

    During protracted negotiations between Epstein’s lawyers and state prosecutors over his agreement to plead guilty to sex offences, a US Attorney in Florida “promised to avoid” allowing the case to become a media circus. Epstein’s victims were not told of the plea bargain agreement until after it had happened, denying them the chance to press for a trial on more serious charges, where they would have had the opportunity to name their alleged abusers from the witness box. Epstein’s legal team was also concerned that if his victims were allowed to “participate in the state sentencing”, their accusations would have...

A new lawsuit has revealed the extent of former President Clinton's friendship with a fundraiser who was later jailed for having sex with an underage prostitute. Bill Clinton's relationship with Jeffrey Epstein, who served time in 2008 for his illegal sexual partners, included up multiple trips to the onetime billionaire's private island in the Caribbean where underage girls were allegedly kept as sex slaves.

But in a civil suit filed this past week in Florida, alleging that billionaire Jeffrey Epstein received special treatment from the government in a child sexual abuse case in 2008 in which Epstein served only 13 months in jail while avoiding far more serious charges, all three celebrities were named as persons having sex with underage girls at Epstein's estate on his Carribean island....

    One of the secular left’s latest windmills at which to tilt is America’s fanciful “rape culture.” There is a universal ethos of violence against women, as they imagine it, that stems from a millennia-old global patriarchy chiefly derived from religion in general and Judeo-Christianity in particular (another of their pet nemeses). Paradoxically, these “progressive” Don Quixotes actually believe in said “rape culture,” something that, outside of Islam, does not exist, while they disbelieve in their Creator, Christ Jesus, who both did and does exist. Exhibit A, of course, is the now-debunked UVA fraternity gang-rape hoax concocted in the disturbed minds...

    An April Congressional Research Service (CRS) report shows that the Government Services Administration (GSA), which is in charge of supporting federal disbursements, budgeted $950,000 for former president Bill Clinton in the 2014 budget. Clinton will collect a $201,000 pension in 2014, a figure four times larger than the median family income in the United States. The Clintons have received a total of $15,938,000 in federal money since 2001. Hillary Clinton recently described the poverty her family experienced upon exiting the White House while promoting her book. They were “dead broke,” Hillary said, adding that she and her husband “struggled to,...

    Hillary Clinton (aka Mrs Slick Willy) today explained the extent of them being "dead broke" and how they adapted. Hillary stated that Bill (aka Slick Willy) used to hang out at the Salvation Army Store to pick up the used clothes that Slow Joe Biden brought in for tax deductions. The well used suits were tailored by the talented Hispanic maid into the famed Hillary pant suits. The under shorts were usable by Slick Willy once the skid marks were bleached down and dyed over by the maid. Chelsea was signed up for the "free meals" programs at her private...

    BEGIN TRANSCRIPT RUSH: Before we get to the Hillary Clinton sound bites, I don't think things are going as well with this book as they had planned. But that's just my first take, just based on things I'm seeing in the news. It's still at number two on Amazon and it had the whole Drive-By Media behind it. It's already been marked down 40%, which is not uncommon. It's standard operating procedure sometimes for best-sellers to be knocked down to 30%, anywhere from 15 to 30. But 40? And there are not a whole lot of people showing up at...

    If the “well-placed” source found by The Sydney Morning Herald is to be believed, it seems former President Bill Clinton went into Hulk mode on a Swiss hotel mirror after hearing Qatar was awarded the 2022 World Cup. The Morning Herald reports : “Bill Clinton looked anything but happy as he strode into the Savoy Baur en Ville hotel in Zurich in December 2010. The receptionists could tell he was irritated, but had no idea just how angry he was. After closing the door to his suite, he reached for an ornament on a table and threw it at a...
  • As Hillary White House run looms, questions linger about Bill

    Whether Hillary Clinton likes it or not, her husband is one of the big reasons she is the prohibitive favorite to win the Democratic Party’s presidential nomination if she runs in 2016. The charismatic, popular former president has talents as a surrogate and fundraiser that are unprecedented for a would-be presidential spouse. But recent days have also underscored that Bill Clinton can be as much a liability as an asset to his wife. During a speech last week to the Peterson Foundation Fiscal Summit, the former president flashed some of the irascibility that gave his wife's campaign heartburn during her...

    Former President Bill Clinton defended Hillary Clinton's actions as Secretary of State following the 2012 attack that killed four Americans in Benghazi, saying his wife "did what she should have done." "In my opinion, Hillary did what she should have done. She impaneled a very high level review committee," Clinton said Wednesday at the Peter G. Peterson Foundation 2014 Fiscal Summit. “They looked into what was wrong, they gave 29 recommendations,” he added. “She took them and started implementing them and they established the fact that, whether it was right or wrong in the past, secretaries of states never were...
  • At shareholders meeting, Boeing CEO questioned on Clinton ties (politics and profiteering)

    EDITED Boeing's CEO faced pointed questions about its charitable donation to the Clinton Foundation in the same year that then-Secy of State Hillary Clinton advocated on its behalf on an official tax-financed trip to Russia. David Almasi, shareholder and representative of the National Center for Public Policy Research think tank, asked the question, and gave an indication of the kinds of challenges that companies could face as Hillary weighs a run for president. Dozens of major corporations have made charitable donations to the Clinton Foundation in recent years. Almasi called the Boeing donation a "clear conflict of interest" that seemed...
  • ABC Devotes Almost 13 Minutes to 'Royal' Clinton Baby, Nothing on Keystone Delay

    Since word broke on Thursday night that Chelsea Clinton will be having a baby, ABC has fixated over the news, devoting 12 minutes and 47 seconds of coverage to the arrival of America's new "royal" child. Yet, the same network totally ignored the latest delay of the Kyestone XL pipeline by the Obama administration (and the political ramifications that go with it). On Friday morning, ABC reporter Bianna Golodryga hyped, "Move over, Prince George, though. This morning, Americans have their own royal, or, rather, presidential baby, to look forward to." On Sunday, This Week avoided Keystone, yet the ABC program...

    “Why we root for Chelsea Clinton” was the latest from the Washington Post’s new culture blogger Alyssa Rosenberg. “For those of us who were once curly-haired, awkward daughters, Chelsea Clinton’s arrival on the national stage at age 12 meant years of sympathetic wincing. The barbs directed her way landed on us by proxy,” including Rush Limbaugh’s old “family dog” joke. Youngsters might not realize that almost everyone in politics treated Chelsea with deference to her parents throughout the Clinton presidency, which ended when she was 20. The weirdest part is how Rosenberg can complain about Clinton opponents mocking Chelsea instead...

    Poor Chelsea. There aren't many untainted names left for her to name her baby. I think if it's a boy, she will be left with more options. For a girl, there are just so many names that dredge up bad memories. Monica is obviously out. Jennifer, no matter the spelling, simply wouldn't be appropriate. Barbra, Markie, Elizabeth, none of these appropriate. Cute baby names like Dolly or Sally won't even work. What about the great classics, like Kathleen, Linda, or Deborah? Very much out. Paula? Don't even think about it. Even some of the more ethnic and unusual names like...

    Chelsea Clinton has left the door open to one day to running for office herself. "I live in a city and a state where I support my elected representatives," Clinton said in an interview with the business magazine Fast Company. "If at some point that weren’t the case, and I didn’t support my mayor or my city councilwoman or my congresswoman or either of my senators — and I’m lucky to live in a state where I have lots of women representing me, you know — maybe then I’d have to ask and answer the question for myself, and come...
