  • Kenneth Starr Still Getting Hardballs

    09/12/2018 5:07:12 AM PDT · by Kaslin · 18 replies ^ | September 12 | Brent Bozell and Tim Graham
    Twenty years after recommending to Congress that then-President Clinton be impeached for perjury and obstruction of justice, Kenneth Starr has written a book about it. Surely, with the passage of time and many other books exploring the Lewinsky affair and the other Clinton scandals, Starr can be treated with dignity and respect. Back then, he faced ABC's Diane Sawyer calling his Starr report "demented pornography, pornography for Puritans." Twenty years later, nothing has changed. In a Sept. 10 interview on "CBS This Morning," anchor Norah O'Donnell brought up one of his lawyers: "One of the things we've learned the Supreme...

    Bill Clinton is like the aging rocker who has gone from playing baseball stadiums to barely filling night clubs. Only about 100 people turned out to see Clinton in Salem, New Hampshire Wednesday as he campaigned for his wife. The event, hosted in Hillary's campaign's office, was a stark contrast to Republican rival Donald Trump’s crowds.

    Monica Lewinsky is taking to the pages of Vanity Fair to address her affair with former President Bill Clinton, writing that she avoided the spotlight for fear of becoming an issue during Hillary Clinton’s 2008 campaign, but adds that the time has come to stop “tiptoeing around my past — and other people’s futures.” -snip- “Thanks to the Drudge Report, I was also possibly the first person whose global humiliation was driven by the Internet,” Lewinsky writes. Lewinsky also had a suggestion for Beyonce, who recently referenced the affair on the single “Partition,” from her most recent album. “Thanks, Beyoncé,...

    10 September 1998 I became the virtual man I have become (ie jobim). That was an eventful year - Paula Jones, Monica, Ken Starr report, impeachment - but more importantly, it was the crescendo of scandals that revealed the flaw that even the towering genius of the Founding Fathers could not circumvent in crafting our blessed Constitution. That flaw was, and oh so woefully is, bad men with their hands on the reins. George Will said that Clinton was not necessarily the worst president, but the worst man ever to be president. But we can wax nostalgic about those days...
  • Clinton: 'I'm very sorry'

    Clinton: 'I'm very sorry' Posted by CNN's Ashley Killough (CNN) – Bill Clinton regrets the swirl over comments he made earlier in the week in which he appeared to suggest he would be open to extending the so-called Bush tax cuts for the wealthy, the former president said Thursday. "I'm very sorry about what happened," Clinton said in an interview to air on CNN's "The Situation Room with Wolf Blitzer." "I thought something had to be done on the 'fiscal cliff' before the election. Apparently nothing has to be done until the first of the year." Republicans seized on Clinton's...

    Clintons ‘Deeply Unhappy’ With Weiner Max Read — Much has been made of the fact that bulge-Tweeting congressman Anthony Weiner (8==D - N.Y.) is married to Huma Abedin, a close aide of Secretary of State Hillary Clinton — and that President Clinton officiated at their wedding. But having been through a not entirely dissimilar situation does not seem to have made the Clintons more sympathetic to Weiner's problem: One of Mr. Weiner's most emotional apologies was delivered to former President Bill Clinton[...] The Clintons are deeply unhappy about the situation and with Mr. Weiner, people who had been told of...

    Bill Clinton calls La. senator 'sinner' in fundraising letter 12:45 PM, June 8, 2010 ι By DAVID SEIFMAN Former President Clinton has sent out a fundraising letter on behalf of the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee under his own name warning that Republicans are trying to "derail' President Obama's agenda. Not much unexpected there. But along with the letter, Clinton has included a flyer from the DSCC that's bound to raise eyebrows. "DSCC funds go towards efforts to unseat far-right Republican senators like admitted sinner David Vitter..." the flyer says, referring to the Louisiana senator who admitted patronizing a prostitution service...

    We're not looking to give Bill Clinton a hard time on a day when he's undergone heart surgery. But our forbearance doesn't extend to Tom Brokaw when he misstates history . . . On this evening's Hardball, responding to Chris Matthews' question as to what motivates Clinton nowadays, Brokaw surmised that he is trying to improve his place in history given that, as president, impeachment proceedings had been "initiated" against him.

    President Obama, speaking now at former President Bill Clinton's Clinton Global Initiative, opened with a tribute to his Democratic predecessor's raw political talent. "He looks you in the eye, feels your pain, he makes you feel like you're the only person in the room. What could I say?" Obama asked. "I was vulnerable, just as all of you have been vulnerable to his charms."

    LENOIR, N.C. (AP) - Former President Bill Clinton is cracking wise about his ability to make people faint, telling voters in North Carolina he didn't think he still had it in him. Clinton was campaigning Sunday for his wife's presidential bid on a hot and sunny day in western North Carolina. The state's primary is Tuesday. After one person fell during an event in Lenoir, Clinton joked: "Somebody faints at nearly every one of these things now. At my age, I didn't think I could make anybody faint anymore." A young girl walked away from an earlier event in Marion...
  • Kathleen Willey Describes Assault in Oval Office [Sordid Detail Alert]

    I’ve been reading Kathleen Willey’s new book, Target: Caught in the Crosshairs of Bill and Hillary Clinton. In it, she provides details of her encounter with Clinton in the Oval Office that AFAIK have never been previously revealed. I urge everyone to buy the book. It is a very good read. Below is her story as told in the book. The background, of course, is that Kathleen had asked to see the President because of a family financial crisis. She had been volunteering at the White House, but could not do so any longer; she needed a paying job. I...

    Former President May Still Be Ultimate Power Broker (CBS) HARLEM -- At about 12:45 p.m. on Thursday, 13 floors above 125th Street off Fifth in Harlem, the former President of the United States walks into a packed double conference-sized room with not enough room on the riser in the back for all the TV cameras. And only two or three of the cameras are from local news or the usual networks. Many are from business outlets, and half are from international news agencies, particularly outfits that cover Latin America. Because standing there with Mr. Clinton are Frank Giustra, one of...

    Some of Bill Clinton's friends and teachers remember the Arkansas native as a charismatic standout destined for greatness, while others recall the young Clinton was a shy boy whose clarinet playing left something to be desired. Such first impressions -- along with memories of growing up in the still-segregated South -- are among the text of 28 interviews documenting the former president's early years in Hope and Hot Springs. The interviews, which were released Tuesday by the Pryor Center for Arkansas Oral and Visual History, are part of a project that aims to make Clinton the most documented president ever....

    WASHINGTON - Former advisers ridiculed ex-President Bill Clinton yesterday for saying he had a plan to invade Afghanistan, topple the Taliban and kill Osama Bin Laden after jihadists nearly sank the destroyer Cole. "The only order we got from [Clinton] after the Cole was to put together a target list for air attacks," said Michael Scheuer, who led the CIA's hunt for Osama Bin Laden under Clinton. "What I was involved in could in no way be called a full-fledged plan to attack and overthrow the Taliban," he said. In his fiery interview on "Fox News Sunday," Clinton claimed he...
