Hillary Clinton's Scandals

The empirical and anecdotal evidence on this page speaks for itself.  If you and Hillary Clinton are like-minded, none of this is likely to change your opinions; however, if you are the least bit undecided about whether or not to vote for her, you should spend some time looking at all this.

Hillary's Boomerang.  The hits keep coming.  Will our elected officials get to the bottom of the Clinton Foundation's pay-to-play schemes?  Will we ever know what was in those bleach-bitted Hillary "yoga" emails or the many thousands recovered from sexting enthusiast Anthony Weiner's computer?  What about the nexus of conspiracy suggested by the Loretta Lynch and Bill Clinton "grandkids chat" on the tarmac as it dovetailed with James Comey's premature decision to not indict Hillary for her "grossly negligent" choice to set up that private server?  Do James Clapper, Donna Brazile, and Susan Rice merit Get Out of Jail Free cards for their straight-faced, verifiable lies — Clapper while under oath?  And now that Tony Podesta has stepped away from the lobbying firm he ran with his brother John, will the special counsel even bother to expose their Russian affiliations when it has a clear agenda and bigger fish to fry?

The Clintons — At the End of All Things.  Collate the FBI reopened investigation, WikiLeaks Podesta trove, revelations about the Clinton Foundation, the e-mail — server scandal, the DNC disclosures, and the various off-the-cuff campaign remarks of Bill and Hillary Clinton, and one then ponders what was the point of the Clinton shakedowns, the loss of reputation, the crude lawbreaking, as they neared their seventh decade.  To paraphrase Barack Obama, in his progressive sermonizing on making enough money, did the two ever think they had enough money, enough honors, enough power already?  The Hillary/Bill fortune — generated by pay-for-play influence peddling on the proposition that Bill would return to the White House under Hillary's aegis and reward friends while punishing enemies — hit a reported $150 million some time ago, a fortune built not on farming, mining, insurance, finance, high-tech, or manufacturing, but on skimming off money.  The Clintons are simply grifters whose insider access to government gave them the power to make rich people richer.

Don't blame Comey for Clinton's defeat.  FBI Director James Comey did not use a private email server to conduct official State Department business and put 110 classified emails on that unsecured server.  Comey did not fail to turn over some 14,900 emails to the FBI after assuring Americans that "I turned over everything I was obligated to turn over." Comey did not lie repeatedly about his emails — first declaring that there was "no classified material" ... then that there was nothing "classified at the time" ... and then that there was nothing "marked classified" in them.  Comey did not lie to the American people about Benghazi, publicly blaming the attacks on "inflammatory material posted on the Internet" but privately telling the Egyptian prime minister that "we know the attack in Libya had nothing to do with the film."  Comey did not tell Democratic voters that he was against free-trade deals, but then tell Brazilian bankers that his dream was for "hemispheric ... open trade and open borders" — or get caught admitting that he has "both a public and a private position" on issues.

Hillary Clinton says Trump is abusing power with uranium deal investigation.  Appointing a special counsel to probe her Uranium One deal would be "such an abuse of power" by the Trump administration, Hillary Clinton said Wednesday [11/15/2017].  The former Democratic presidential candidate said Trump risked dangerously politicizing the Justice Department, "like some authoritarian regime."  Clinton made the remarks in an interview with Mother Jones about reports this week that Attorney General Jeff Sessions asked two top prosecutors to look into the sale of a uranium company to Russian interests during Clinton's time as secretary of state.  President Trump and other Republicans allege ties between donations to the Clinton Foundation and the company sale, even though nine different federal agencies signed off on the 2010 deal, Mother Jones said.

Hillary Clinton's corruption probe seen gaining some headway.  The Trump administration's Justice Department is inching toward a full investigation of possible corruption in Hillary Clinton's dealings with Russia as secretary of state — with Republican lawmakers urging a focus on her campaign as well.  Attorney General Jeff Sessions, addressing the House Judiciary Committee yesterday [11/14/2017, insisted any probe of President Trump's 2016 Democratic rival will be handled in a nonpartisan way, without undue influence from the White House despite Trump's goading tweets.

Will Justice Investigate Hillary Clinton's Crimes In Uranium One-Fusion GPS Scandal?  A New York Times headline says it all:  "Justice Dept. to Weigh Inquiry Into Clinton Foundation."  Yes, the pressure is growing to fully investigate Bill and Hillary Clinton for their many questionable activities tied to their charitable foundation and to Fusion GPS, the creator of the largely bogus Trump dossier.  Given the mountains of evidence of possible criminal wrongdoing, it's about time.

Hillary Clinton must face the consequences of her actions and the scrutiny of a special counsel.  No person in this country is so high that he or she is above the law.  This includes Hillary Clinton.  There is no station in life or standing in government or political aspiration that absolves someone from criminal conduct.  In this way, we are all creatures of the law and are bound to obey it.  An orderly society cannot function if it permits individuals to disregard the law with impunity.  This fundamental principle, enunciated by the U.S. Supreme Court more than a century ago, is what gives sustenance to our democracy.  Without it, lawlessness, chaos and tyranny at the hands of the few would inexorably ensue.  It follows, then, that Clinton is no higher or lower than any American.  She must abide by the rule of law regardless of her condition or circumstance.  Running for high office, including the presidency, does not somehow establish an entitlement to legal absolution.

Bill Clinton:  A Reckoning.  The most remarkable thing about the current tide of sexual assault and harassment accusations is not their number.  If every woman in America started talking about the things that happen during the course of an ordinary female life, it would never end.  Nor is it the power of the men involved:  History instructs us that for countless men, the ability to possess women sexually is not a spoil of power; it's the point of power.  What's remarkable is that these women are being believed.  Most of them don't have police reports or witnesses or physical evidence.  Many of them are recounting events that transpired years — sometimes decades — ago.  In some cases, their accusations are validated by a vague, carefully couched quasi-admission of guilt; in others they are met with outright denial.  It doesn't matter.  We believe them.  Moreover, we have finally come to some kind of national consensus about the workplace; it naturally fosters a level of romance and flirtation, but the line between those impulses and the sexual predation of a boss is clear.

Podesta Lobbied For Uranium One, Did Not File As Foreign Agent.  A new report claims the Podesta Group did not file as a foreign agent despite lobbying for Uranium One.  The Daily Caller News Foundation determined Tony Podesta's lobbying firm represented the Russia-owned company during the Obama administration, but did not register under the Foreign Agents Registration Act.  The report claims Podesta collected lobbying fees of $180,000 from Uranium One.  GOP Congressman Devin Nunes says he is concerned about Poedesta's lobbying actives, and the decision not to register under the act.

Mueller's Thin Gruel.  That blatant quid pro quo — Hillary Clinton and her cronies in the Obama administration signed off on giving Russia 20 percent of America's uranium production after her family foundation received millions from Russians in the uranium industry — cries out for a special investigation.  Making the appearance of the sale even worse is that it is now known that the approval of it came at the very moment the Obama administration knew all about the Russian uranium industry's bribery practices.  Yet when Trump brought this up during the campaign — "Hillary Clinton's State Department approved the transfer of 20% of America's uranium holdings to Russia, while nine investors in the deal funneled $145 million to the Clinton foundation" — the media shrugged.  Suddenly cooperation with Russia didn't look so bad.

Uranium One deal led to some exports to Europe, memos show.  After the Obama administration approved the sale of a Canadian mining company with significant U.S. uranium reserves to a firm owned by Russia's government, the Nuclear Regulatory Commission assured Congress and the public the new owners couldn't export any raw nuclear fuel from America's shores.  "No uranium produced at either facility may be exported," the NRC declared in a November 2010 press release that announced that ARMZ, a subsidiary of the Russian state-owned Rosatom, had been approved to take ownership of the Uranium One mining firm and its American assets.  A year later, the nuclear regulator repeated the assurance in a letter to Sen. John Barrasso, a Wyoming Republican in whose state Uranium One operated mines.

Mueller is 'compromised,' should resign:  GOP congressional resolution states.  A Republican congressman from Florida introduced a resolution Friday urging Special Counsel Robert Mueller to resign from the Russia probe, saying the one-time FBI director has his own conflicts of interest.  Rep. Matt Gaetz said Mr. Mueller, who was FBI director in 2010, botched an investigation into Russian attempts to bribe and extort their way to a deal to buy a portion of U.S. uranium resources.  Mr. Gaetz said the Justice Department sat on information for four years and silenced a whistleblower who tried to alert Congress to questionable activity.

The Democratic Party needs to get its act together.  On Thursday, former Democratic National Committee interim chair Donna Brazile made a surprising revelation:  An August 2015 agreement gave Hillary Clinton's campaign partial control of the DNC months prior to Clinton winning the nomination.  The "agreement was not illegal," Brazile writes, "but it sure looked unethical."  The news reignited a debate among politicos and activists over whether the DNC influenced the Democratic primary.  Whether the primary was "rigged" or just business as usual though, Brazile's allegations are only the latest evidence of the Democratic Party's troubles, and why the party establishment is ill-equipped to solve them.

Inside Hillary Clinton's Secret Takeover of the DNC.  Before I called Bernie Sanders, I lit a candle in my living room and put on some gospel music.  I wanted to center myself for what I knew would be an emotional phone call.  I had promised Bernie when I took the helm of the Democratic National Committee after the convention that I would get to the bottom of whether Hillary Clinton's team had rigged the nomination process, as a cache of emails stolen by Russian hackers and posted online had suggested.  I'd had my suspicions from the moment I walked in the door of the DNC a month or so earlier, based on the leaked emails.  But who knew if some of them might have been forged?  I needed to have solid proof, and so did Bernie.  So I followed the money.

Donna Brazile steps up to solve the Democrats' 'Clinton problem'.  The serious people with a vested interest in the continued existence of the Democratic Party — the pols, interests, and apparatchiks of the Dem Deep State — realize that they have a "Clinton problem."  An unlikable candidate bound to lose will not go away, and she embarrasses herself and the party on a continuing basis.  Worse still, Uranium One is a ticking time bomb — one that implicates not only the Clintons, but the entire Obama administration.  When you combine Russia (the subject of eleven and half months of hysteria from Democrats) and a hundred-some million dollars in blatant and obvious payoffs, and throw in the mystique of uranium (the stuff of Armageddon), you get an easily understood scandal that is also scary.

Did the Clintons Turn the DNC Into a Criminal Conspiracy?  [Donna] Brazile, in case you have forgotten, is the long-time Democratic Party operative who replaced Debbie Wasserman-Schultz as Chair of the Democratic National Committee.  In the Politico excerpt, Brazile throws Wasserman-Schultz and numerous others under the bus.  Brazile says that the Democratic Party was in terrible financial condition.  In order to save itself, it sold its soul to the Clinton operation, prior to when Hillary became the party's presidential nominee: [...] So Hillary's campaign paid off the debt and "placed the [Democratic] party on an allowance."  Brazile said she had no knowledge of these arrangements — or even of the party's perilous financial condition — even though she was an officer of the DNC.  It was all Debbie's fault.  Brazile endorses Politico's assertion, made in May of last year, that Clinton's arrangement with the DNC was "essentially... money laundering."

Trump calls for Justice Dept to investigate claims Hillary took over the DNC months before she ran.  President Donald Trump stoked intra-party Democratic tensions as he took off for a trip to Asia — accusing 'Crooked' Hillary Clinton of 'cheating' and stealing her primary win over Sen. Bernie Sanders and urged a criminal probe[.]  He picked up on sensational charges in a new book by a leading Democratic operative — and leaned on his own Justice Department to probe his election rival even as his own campaign remains under investigation for Russia ties.  'I always felt I would be running and winning against Bernie Sanders, not Crooked H, without cheating, I was right,' Trump tweeted late Friday morning [11/3/2017] as he began his trip.

Hillary Clinton's scheme in 'rigging' the nomination may have been criminal.  Hillary Clinton has spent a year crying about how the presidency was stolen from her.  Turns out, she stole the Democratic nomination from Bernie Sanders.  The stunning revelation from former Democratic National Committee interim chairperson Donna Brazile that Clinton secretly rigged the primary process by commandeering the DNC should come as no surprise to anyone.  Clinton is nothing, if not unethical and corrupt.  She always has been.  This is precisely why pre-election polls consistently showed that a majority of Americans found her dishonest and untrustworthy.  The critical question now is whether she committed crimes in her theft of the nomination.

Hillary and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day.  The carefully constructed house of cards built by Crooked Hillary, Slick Willie, the Clinton Foundation and their army of media hacks is tumbling down right before our very eyes.  Mrs. Bill Clinton is trying to stage a book tour right now so she can explain to us all why it is everyone else's fault that America rejected her authoritarian rulership on November 8, 2016.  But all that Americans seem to want to talk about these days is how nice it would be to see Crooked Hillary in a one-piece prison pantsuit as Sheriff Joe Arpaio watches over her with a shotgun to ensure that she breaks the big rocks down into little-bitty rocks.  It's called justice, Hillary, and it's coming for you!

Clinton Playbook Being Rolled Out to Protect Hillary.  [Scroll down]  If one looks back over the many years we have had to endure the Clintons' sanctimonious protestations, we will see the same pattern of lies, denials and projections of their own misdeeds onto their political enemies.  Regarding her use of her personal e-mail system, including a private server, for government business while serving as Secretary of State, Hillary lied and then kept changing her story.  She first denied that she had done anything wrong or transmitted any classified information.  Then she reverted to defenses such as others have done the same thing, no harm done, big ado about nothing, etc.  Hillary's defenders, then as now, blamed the whole controversy on her political opponents.

From Russia To Hillary:  Bribes, Extortion, Uranium and Lies.  Hillary is demanding to know the truth about Trump and Russia.  The truth is that every accusation about Russian ties that Hillary and her associates have hurled at President Trump is really true of the Clintons.

Hillary's Phony "Shock" At Weinstein Scandal.  It's often useful to follow the money, especially when it comes to the Clintons.  Since 1995, Harvey Weinstein gave in the range of $50,000 to Hillary Clinton's presidential and Senate campaigns, including to a joint fund with the Democratic National Committee in 2016.  Weinstein bundled contributions from other donors to Hillary's campaign and hosted at least two fundraisers for her 2016 presidential campaign.  On one such occasion, about $1.8 million was raised from the 50 guests who attended a shindig in Weinstein's New York City residence.  Weinstein is also reported to have donated somewhere between $100,000 and $250,000 to the Clinton Foundation, according to its website.

Hillary: 'I Give 10% of My Income to Charity Every Year' and Weinstein Donations 'Will Be Part of That'.  During an interview with CNN's Fareed Zakaria, portions of which were broadcast on Wednesday's [10/11/2017] edition of CNN's "OutFront," former Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton denounced Harvey Weinstein's behavior and announced that money she received from him would be part of the 10% of her income she donates to charity every year. [...] Hillary also stated that she will donate the money she received from Weinstein to charity, adding, "I give 10% of my income to charity every year.  This will be part of that.  There's no doubt about it."

The Editor says...
I'd like to see the list of churches and "charities" that have received ten percent of Hillary's income over the last few years.

As Democrats denounce Weinstein, Clintons and Obama stay mum.  Many Democratic office holders were quick to repudiate disgraced Hollywood executive Harvey Weinstein following a bombshell report detailing decades of alleged sexual harassment.  But former Democratic Presidents Barack Obama and Bill Clinton, as well as former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton — all of whom have longstanding ties to Weinstein, a major Democratic Party fundraiser — have not publicly addressed the accusations.  Representatives for the Clintons have not responded to comment for this story, and Obama's office declined to comment.

Harvey Weinstein should force media to admit Hillary Clinton is not a feminist icon.  It's out in the open now that Hollywood giant Harvey Weinstein has a rancid history of behaving inappropriately with women, confirming what many people suspected but the national media never admitted:  Hillary Clinton isn't a feminist icon.  For someone so heralded by the media as an example of female empowerment, Clinton is close with a lot of abusers.  An extensive report published Thursday by the New York Times cited several women by name, including actress Ashley Judd, who claim to have been sexually harassed by Weinstein.

New Hillary Emails Warrant Special Prosecutor.  New emails unearthed by Judicial Watch confirm that the Clinton Foundation was in fact a pay-to-play influence peddling operation far more worthy of a special prosecutor than imaginary Russians colluding under Trump Administration beds.  It is time for President Trump to keep the promise he made in the presidential debate to indict Hillary Clinton for her crimes. [...] Clinton played a pivotal role in the Uranium One deal which ended up giving Russian interests control of 20 percent of our uranium supply in exchange for donations of $145 million to the Clinton Foundation.  That, ladies and gentlemen, is a federal crime.

Republicans dig deeper after Postal Service cited for workers' Clinton campaign aid.  Republican lawmakers are casting a wider net in their search for wrongdoing at federal agencies in past election cycles, after learning the Postal Service violated the law by allowing employees to do union-funded work for Hillary Clinton's campaign while on leave.  The lawmakers blasted out letters on Monday [8/21/2017] to 10 other federal government agencies questioning their unpaid leave policy for union-related political work.

Clinton Campaign Never Bought 'Carbon Offsets' To Atone For Hillary's Private Jet Rides.  Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton seems to have broken her promise to run a carbon neutral campaign by purchasing credits to offset all the carbon dioxide emitted from her private jet travel.  The Clinton campaign promised nearly two years ago to go carbon neutral after the former top diplomat was caught flying a private jet the same day she gave a speech on the dangers of man-made global warming.  That promise remains unkept, a Daily Caller News Foundation review of federal election filings found.

Post Office Employees Were Given Paid Leave to Campaign for Hillary Clinton.  Clinton had so many people doing her dirty work, it's shocking that Trump won.  Take the postal employees for example.  They could have kept Trump campaign mailers from reaching their destination.  After all, the post office is one of the biggest employers of blacks, ergo Democrats in the country.  And why wouldn't they not deliver Trump's mailers, given their other support of crooked Hillary Clinton in the way of campaigning.  According to Heat Street, the USPS covered time off for employees who wanted to go campaign for Hillary Clinton in 2016.  Who wouldn't want to get out of that job?'

FBI Agents Expose:  Bill Clinton Brokered Deal With Lynch for Hillary.  From Benghazi and email servers to sex scandals and dead bodies, justice tends to elude the Clintons.  However, even James Comey says this meeting was a bad deal.

Report: FBI Agents Privately Believe Lynch, Clinton Struck 'An Inside Deal'.  According to The New York Post, FBI agents who worked on the Hillary Clinton email investigation are privately upset with the decision not to charge her and are quietly alleging that Attorney General Loretta Lynch must have struck a deal with her husband Bill Clinton during their private meeting.  The Post cites anonymous sources in the FBI who claim that agents investigating Clinton were subject to higher-than-usual scrutiny.  Agents had to sign "Case Briefing Acknowledgment" forms, non-disclosure agreements keeping them from speaking to anyone about the case unless called to testify.  As a result, agents cannot go public with their opinions of the case, whether they agree with the final result or not.

State Department probes Clinton handling of government emails, could pull her security clearance.  The State Department has opened a formal inquiry into whether former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and her aides mishandled classified information while she was the nation's top diplomat, Fox News has learned.  Despite being under investigation, Clinton and her staffers still have security clearances to access sensitive government information.

U.S. Twitter Erupts Over News That Hillary Clinton Used Black Prison Labor While First Lady Of Arkansas.  Twitter users have reacted with surprise and fury over excerpts from Hillary Clinton's 1996 book It Takes A Village.  On June 6, Jeanette Jing, an activist with over 33,000 followers on Twitter who supports Clinton's Democratic opponent Sen. Bernie Sanders, shared two pages of the work in which Clinton reminisces about the black prisoners who worked in the Arkansas governor's mansion she shared with her husband, Bill Clinton, who led the state from 1979 to 1981 and 1983 to 1992.

Hillary Clinton Once Demanded Separate Plane Rather Than Share One With Michelle Obama.  Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton once requested to fly in a separate plane rather than share one with then-First Lady Michelle Obama, according to newly released emails. [...] The exchange between Clinton and Abedin came after another message, one also released during the 2016 election, showed that Clinton complained commercial flights were "burdensome" and asked Abedin to get the Air Force to fly her from Westchester, N.Y. back to Washington, D.C.  Clinton has long been a proponent of lowering the United States' carbon footprint in an effort to mitigate the effects of climate change.  The former Democratic presidential candidate promised to take "bold steps to slash carbon pollution at home and around the world."

Sicilian Mafia has nothing on the Dems!  The days, and soon to be weeks, after FBI Director James Comey's firing have really turned up the heat on the Democrats. [...] The so-called "tampering" in the recent presidential election showed emails released by the "Russian" WikiLeaks (according to Mrs. Clinton) disclosing in unfiltered detail how Democrats really felt about their rank and file constituents, those average working Americans.  They made fun of Mexicans, blacks, and Jews.  We saw firsthand in those emails that, from day one, they had no intention of allowing Bernie Sanders to ever win.  They made sure he didn't get the nomination.  Yes, the DNC!

The law was bent and broken to keep Clinton in the game.  [Scroll down]  Democrat voters also should be questioning the legitimacy of Clinton's nomination because the rule of law was corrupted to preserve her political viability.  Her candidacy should have ended when the email server story broke.  (Really, it should have ended with the publication of Clinton Cash, but the Democrats incorrectly believed their controlled media could insulate her from the fallout of those astounding revelations.)  The politicized Obama Justice Department did Democrats no favors by staving off indictments that would have taken Clinton out of the game, or by slow-walking the email investigation until her replacement became prohibitively difficult.

'Clinton quite effective at discrediting herself, doesn't need Putin's help' - ex CIA analyst.  The main goal of the whole "Russian hacking" US election narrative is a propaganda stunt aimed discrediting Trump by claiming that Russia's Vladimir Putin personally intervened to discredit Hillary Clinton, retired CIA analyst has told RT.  "It's designed to smear Trump.  Because even the language that developed the notion that Vladimir Putin took it upon himself and instructed the intelligence organs in Russia to go out and discredit Hillary Clinton.  Hillary Clinton didn't need any help being discredited, she was quite effective at it herself," Larry Johnson said.  "It was not Vladimir Putin that put the email server in her bathroom," Johnson added.

The Real Clinton Conspiracy that Backfired — The Worst Candiate in American History.  Hillary lost not merely because she misread the "real" people, she decided to run a very divisive and nasty negative campaign, which has fueled the violence ever since. [...] Clinton called this her "pied piper" strategy, that intentionally cultivated extreme right-wing presidential candidates and that would turn the Republicans away from their more moderate candidates.  This enlisted mainstream media who then focused to Trump and raise him above all others assuming that would help Hillary for who would vote for Trump.  This was a deliberate strategy all designed to propel Hillary to the White House.  The Clinton campaign and Democratic National Committee along with mainstream media all called for using far-right candidates "as a cudgel to move the more established candidates further to the right."  Clinton's camp insisted that Trump should be "elevated" to "leaders of the pack" and media outlets should be told to "take them seriously."

Thanks To The Clintons, We Have Achieved a Full Blow [sic] Constitutional Crisis.  Ignore the gnashing of partisan hacks in the media and elsewhere.  We have achieved full constitutional crisis.  Hillary Clinton, Democrat candidate for POTUS, and her husband and former POTUS, are now under criminal investigation with indictments very, very likely.  Who in this country wants their new President-elect and a former President under indictment come January 2017 when the new president is supposed to be sworn in?  Who in this country wants to have Nixon to the second power, with two members of our elite POTUS club spending their time and energy fighting off the FBI and using a politicized Department of Justice (and IRS) to try and hold onto power?

Clinton Scandals:  Hillary's Stonewall Strategy Is Backfiring.  For more than a year, Hillary Clinton's plan for dealing with two potentially devastating scandals was clear:  deny, deny, delay, delay and count on her friends in the media to play along.  It was working pretty well.  Until the past few days.  When the email scandal first came to light way back in March 2015, Clinton's first response was to pretty much deny everything.  She didn't set her private email up to avoid Freedom of Information Act requests (merely out of convenience), there was no classified material in her emails, she turned every work related email over to the State Department, etc.  Her denials were all false, as the public release of those emails made abundantly clear.  But by the time the facts had trickled out through a disinterested news media — which kept repeating the "no smoking gun" mantra" with each new scandalous revelation — the public had grown weary over the scandal.

Deleted email:  Clinton White House data stolen from National Archives.  A drive containing data on potentially every official in the Clinton administration was likely stolen from the National Archives and Records Administration in 2009, according to emails deleted by Hillary Clinton but recovered and released Thursday by the State Department.  The information was conveyed by Blake Roberts, a deputy White House counsel for President Obama, in a message that made it to Hillary Clinton's private server in April 2009. "The National Archives alerted me that they cannot account for a 2 terabyte hard drive containing electronic records from the Clinton administration," Blake wrote.  "They believe it was stolen.  NARA has an identical copy of the drive, which it is analyzing."  Roberts said the drive, which contained information equivalent to approximately 900 million single-spaced pages, went missing between Jan. 30 and Mar. 24.

Michael McCaul on Hillary Clinton server, hacks: 'It's treason'.  Rep. Michael McCaul, chairman of the House Homeland Security Committee, on Thursday [11/3/2016] said Hillary Clinton's exposing sensitive information to potentially multiple hacks from foreign actors amounts to treason.  "This is why you have security protocols — to protect classified information," Mr. McCaul said on "Fox and Friends."  "She exposed it to our enemies, and now ... our adversaries have this very sensitive information that not only jeopardizes her and national security at home, but the men and women serving overseas."  "In my opinion, quite frankly, it's treason," said Mr. McCaul, Texas Republican.

Massachusetts law firm donated $1.6M to Democrats including Hillary Clinton and received bonuses that matched their political donations in massive 'straw-donor scheme'.  A Massachusetts law firm has been accused of funneling funds to the Democrats through an massive and illegal straw-donor scheme.  A growing number of party politicians are now returning donations from Thornton Law after it was found that the firm's partners received bonuses that matched their political donations in what may be one of the largest schemes ever revealed.  An investigation found that partners donated nearly $1.6 million to mostly Democratic committees and candidates, including Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton, from 2010 through 2014.  During that same period, the lawyers received $1.4 million listed as 'bonuses,' including more than 280 in amounts that precisely matched their donations.

Chicago Tribune:  Time for Democrats to Ask Clinton to Step Aside.  John Kass writes at the Chicago Tribune that in the face of the FBI reopening an investigation into the emails of Hillary Clinton while she was Secretary of State, it is time for her to "step down" as the Democratic Presidential nominee.

An essential guide to the Wikileaks revelations on Hillary.  I have yet to explore it in depth, but what I have seen so far indictes that this is a valuable organizer of the Wikileaks data, and I hope it is updated continually.

Leaked Email Reveals What Hillary Was Willing To Do To Silence Trey Gowdy.  Trey Gowdy is very good at his job.  He's a clear and present danger to Hillary Clinton.  He has given it his all to go after Hillary Clinton on Benghazi... he hasn't succeeded — the Clinton Machine has been too well oiled on this one.  One of WikiLeaks' emails also shows how it was a priority for Team Hildabeast to take Trey Gowdy down.  Especially as he turned up the heat on Benghazi.  Hillary's aides were ordered to find some way to discredit Gowdy.  They brainstormed it — all the big names in Clinton's email scandal were part of the plotting.  But in the end, they failed to nail him.

Hillary Clinton failed to disclose $400,000 in pricey presents, private jets and vacations gifted to Bill although she was obligated to do so as Secretary of State.  Hillary Clinton did not disclose 'expensive gifts,' free vacations, and complimentary private jet travel her family received from business interests while she was at the State Department, according to leaked emails and federal disclosure records reviewed by the DailyMail.com[.]  Long-time Clinton aide Doug Band claimed in a confidential 2011 memo published by Wikileaks this week that he helped obtain free vacations and personal travel for Bill Clinton and his family as part of his duties.  During Hillary Clinton's tenure at the State Department, she did not report any gifts or travel reimbursements for herself or her spouse in her financial disclosure filings.

Hillary Busted Holding Closed Door Meeting with Florida Elections Director in Possible Voter Fraud Scheme.  More proof of a rigged system and likely voter fraud taking place right before our eyes in the critical state of Florida.  There have been several reports that Broward County Election Director Brenda Snipes has met with Hillary Clinton behind closed doors and several sources of claim to be coming forward with pictures soon.

Mook Says Dem Operatives Foval and Creamer 'Never Had Relationship With Clinton Campaign'.  In the wake of four shocking undercover videos that show improper and possibly illegal collusion between the Clinton campaign and some very shady operatives on the organized left, Campaign Manager Robby Mook has applied the Clinton method for handling scandals:  Deny and move on.  And in doing so, the Clinton campaign has thrown longtime community organizer and loyal Democrat Robert Creamer under the bus.

Robert Creamer Says He Was on Calls With Clinton Campaign 'Every Morning'.  Disgraced Democratic operative Robert Creamer participated in daily calls with the Hillary Clinton campaign, and worked directly with President Barack Obama to organize "issue campaigns."  Creamer makes the admissions in the latest undercover video release from James O'Keefe and Project Veritas, which captured Creamer describing his activities.

Media's response to major party nominee being implicated in felony:  Silence.  A man closely associated with the Clinton campaign and the DNC — not knowing he's being recorded, of course — admits that Hillary is illegally giving orders for idiotic hijinks to go on at Donald Trump rallies.  The point is not how stupid the whole Donald Duck thing is (and it's very stupid indeed).  The point is that a candidate cannot be giving orders to a Super PAC to do things.  That's a felony violation of campaign law.

Election Law Expert:  Hillary's Coordination With Outside Group Possibly Illegal.  A highly acclaimed expert in election law says that Hillary Clinton may well have broken the law by directing an outside group to put "ducks on the ground" at Trump events and that a criminal investigation may be in order.  Elliot Berke, managing partner of Berke/Farah LLP, has been named by Chambers USA as a "Nationwide Best Lawyer" and by Washingtonian as one of "Washington's Best Lawyers."  He appeared on Fox News Monday evening [10/24/2016] to discuss the latest Project Veritas video, which implicated Hillary Clinton in a possible FEC violation.  In the video, longtime community organizer Bob Creamer said that it was Hillary's idea to have activists dress up in Donald Duck costumes and protest outside of Trump/Pence events.  Creamer is a convicted felon and husband of Illinois Democratic Rep. Jan Schakowsky.

Project Veritas Suggests Hillary Clinton Was Involved in Idea to Protest Donald Trump Rallies.  In another clip featured in Project Veritas' video, [Robert] Creamer seems to be talking about the fact that the original idea was to have people in Uncle Sam costumes follow around Trump with signs that read, "I want you to release your tax returns," but Creamer goes on to say that he received a call from the Clinton campaign and was told that Hillary Clinton wanted to use Donald Duck mascots instead.

Clinton's alleged Donald Duck collusion.  Hillary Clinton appears to be ducking campaign laws, according to a new undercover video released this week by conservative activist James O'Keefe.  O'Keefe claims in his latest Project Veritas Action video that the Democratic presidential nominee engaged in illegal coordination between her campaign and super PACs to attack her opponent.  On hidden camera, several Clinton operatives explain the campaign ploy to Project Veritas journalists.  Robert Creamer, a political consultant for Democracy Partners, details planned protests during which activists will wear Donald Duck costumes to remind voters how Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump is "ducking" the release of his tax returns.


Exposed!  Hillary's illegal campaign tactics.  According to critics of Hillary Clinton, the Democratic presidential candidate has gotten away with fraud, corruption, electioneering, and some conspiracy theorists say even murder.  Now the Clinton campaign could finally be undone, thanks to Donald Duck.  No, really.  This isn't the funny pages, folks.  And this new bombshell means Clinton is in a lot of trouble.  New undercover video appears to contain proof that her campaign conspired with the Democratic candidate to break federal election law.

Rotten to the Core.  [Scroll down]  Speaking of conflicts of interest, how about the Moroccan affair?  Here was a classic example of the kind of pay-to-play corruption no first-world country could ever tolerate in its president.  In case you haven't heard about this, the corrupt king of that country pledged some $12 million to the Clinton Global Initiative on condition that Hillary would appear at a conference he was to host in May of 2015.  But seeing as though the actual payment would come from OCP, a phosphate mining company accused of human rights violations, politically it was a hot potato for her to lend legitimacy to the Moroccans.  And in an email WikiLeaks uncovered, the Clinton machine's various cogs knew it.

New Video Shows Direct (And Illegal) Coordination Between Clinton Campaign, Dem Operatives, And Trump Protests.  James O'Keefe's Project Veritas released their third investigative video exposing the dark web of Democratic operatives and consultants who are seen allegedly colluding to instigate violence at Trump rallies, take part in voter fraud schemes, and provide a hub from where pro-Clinton super PACs can establish lines of communication.  In this third video, taken from a year[-]long investigation into the Clinton campaign's inner workings, we have allegations that Hillary Clinton herself is involved with some of the activities at Trump rallies.

Hillary campaigns at early voting location — in violation of NC law?  Hillary Clinton campaigned at an early voting location on Sunday in Raleigh, North Carolina, in a potential violation of electioneering laws.  Clinton was "mobbed" at the early voting location at Chavis Community Center, Reuters reporter Luciana Lopez tweeted today [10/23/2016].

Hillary Clinton May Have Broken Campaign Finance Law In North Carolina.  According to North Carolina law, it is a crime to engage in political activity within 50 feet of the entrance of a polling location.  But that's exactly what it looked like Clinton was doing [10/23/2016].

North Carolina official:  Doesn't appear Clinton broke 'electioneering' laws with polling place visit.  Hillary Clinton did not appear to break state law this weekend when she greeted voters near a polling place in Raleigh, N.C., a county official said Monday [10/24/2016].  Video captured by a local ABC News affiliate, WTVD-TV, showed the Democratic nominee doing a meet-and-greet with supporters near a polling place at Chavis Park in Wake County.  State law bars "electioneering activities" within specific distances of polling places, and mandates that candidates remain at least 50 feet from the area.

Tech blogger finds proof DNC chief's emails weren't 'doctored' despite claims.  After Democratic Party boss Donna Brazile claimed emails showing her apparently tipping off Hillary Clinton to questions at a March town hall were "doctored," tech sleuths got to work — and now say they've found proof the emails are authentic.

Hillary's Bright Shining Lies.  We conservatives and Alt-Right deplorables are acutely aware of the appalling corruption of the Clintons, from the pay-to-play Clinton Foundation money laundering scheme to the tens of thousands of deleted emails, and from the anti-Islam video as pretext for a riot in Benghazi, Libya to the trail of mysterious deaths of dozens of people who ran afoul of the Clintons.

Clinton has 'nothing to say' about Wikileaks email revealing $12M quid pro quo with Morocco's king.  A stone-faced Hillary Clinton refused to comment on an email a top aide sent calling a Clinton Foundation quid pro qou a 'mess' of the former secretary of state's own making.  'I have nothing to say about Wikileaks, other than I think we should all be concerned about what the Russians are trying to do to our election and using Wikileaks very blatantly to try to influence the outcome of the election,' Clinton said on Saturday [10/22/2016].  The Democratic nominee was responding to a question posed by DailyMail.com during a media avail with reporters riding on her campaign plane.

WikiLeaks: Clinton aides scramble to address alleged mistress nicknamed 'Energizer Bunny'.  Hillary and Bill Clinton's top aides scrambled in 2014 to respond to a new book detailing Bill Clinton's relationship with a New York suburban socialite nicknamed "The Energizer Bunny".  According to leaked emails released Saturday by Wikileaks, the Clintons' inner circle was roiled by the forthcoming release of the book "The First Family In Detail:  Secret Service Agents Reveal The Hidden Lives Of Presidents" by Ronald Kessler.  The book alleged that Bill Clinton had a "blonde, buxom mistress" named Julie McMahon, whom the Secret Service reportedly nicknamed "The Energizer Bunny."

Clinton's WikiLeaks strategy:  Doubt, delay, distract.  With Clinton leading in both national polls and battleground-state surveys, the Democrat is in some ways trying to run out the clock on the election.  The WikiLeaks emails do threaten to reinforce voter doubts about Clinton's honesty.  But her strategy — refuse to confirm the authenticity of the emails, blame Russia for the hack and say little else — has so far successfully defused the impact by avoiding any talk that would keep voters looking at the content of the messages.  Her undisciplined opponent has taken care of the rest.

Hillary Clinton blurts out a military secret:
Defense Secretary Won't Say If Nuclear Launch Timeframe Is Classified Info.  Defense Secretary Ash Carter on Thursday [10/20/2016] refused to answer a reporter's question about a possible intelligence disclosure by Democrat Hillary Clinton.  At Wednesday's final presidential debate, Democrat Hillary Clinton accused Republican Donald Trump of being "very cavalier, even casual about the use of nuclear weapons."  According to Clinton, "The bottom line on nuclear weapons is that when the president gives the order, it must be followed.  There's about four minutes between the order being given and the people responsible for launching nuclear weapons to do so."

Pentagon: Hillary Clinton Should Be Arrested For Leaking Top Secret Nuclear Intelligence on National TV.  Hillary Clinton divulged Top Secret nuclear security intelligence to tens of millions of worldwide television audience viewers Wednesday night during the third presidential debate, according to high-ranking Department of Defense personnel.  Clinton, responding to opponent Donald Trump and a question posed by debate moderator Chris Wallace, boasted specific and "damaging" details about the United States' nuclear response time to retaliate during a nuclear attack. [...] "Secretary Clinton proved tonight she is unfit to be commander-in-chief," a top-ranking DOD intelligence source said.  "What she did compromises our national security.  She is cavalier and reckless and in my opinion should be detained and questioned so we can unravel why she did what she did."

New Bill Clinton Sexual Assault Accuser Goes Public for the First Time.  Speaking publicly for the first time in a Breitbart News video exclusive interview, a former local television news reporter from Arkansas claims she was sexually assaulted by Bill Clinton on three separate occasions in 1980.

Hillary bus caught illegally dumping poop in street.  A Clinton campaign "Forward Together" bus has been caught dumping foul-smelling human waste into the street and down a storm drain in Lawrenceville, Georgia, according to several reports.  "Police say when they arrived on the scene, toilet paper was scattered everywhere and there was a foul smell," reported Atlanta's WGCL-TV 46.  Local businessman Mike Robins snapped several photos of the bus dumping the stinky waste into the street.

Clinton Campaign Bus Caught Dumping Human Waste In Georgia, HAZMAT Team Called In.  Earlier today [10/18/2016], the Democratic National Committee had to apologize for a #ForwardTogether bus dumping human waste into a storm sewer during a stop in Gwinnett County, Georgia.  A local businessman noticed the action and took photos that were then sent to media outlets.  CBS-46 reported on it, treating it as a breaking story and providing numerous updates.

Report: DNC bus caught dumping sewage into storm drain.  A Democratic National Committee tour bus sporting ads for Hillary Clinton and Tim Kaine illegally dumped human waste into a storm drain between campaign stops on Tuesday, according to a CBS affiliate in Atlanta.  Lawrenceville, Ga., police are investigating the claim after a witness came forward Tuesday morning with photos of the incident on Grayson Highway.  The unnamed witness, a businessman from the town, took photos of the Democratic organization's bus spitting out sewage onto the ground.

Hillary bus craps all over Atlanta suburb.  [Scroll down]  For the DNC's part, they owned up to their garbage.  "This was an honest mistake and we apologize to the Lawrenceville community for any harm we may have caused," a DNC spokesperson told WGCL-TV.

The Editor says...
How is it "an honest mistake" to dump sewage into a storm drain?  I suspect this was not the first time the bus crew had made this "mistake" — just the first time they were caught.

Goldman Sachs Paid Hillary $675,000 For This?  While Goldman Sachs was in the middle of laying off 1,700 workers in 2013, it decided to spend more than two-thirds of a million dollars on Hillary Clinton.  And what did it get for its sizable investment?  Very expensive pabulum.

Hillary is accused of stealing furniture from the State Department and taking it to her home by an FBI agent.  Hillary Clinton has been accused of stealing furniture from the State Department and using it in her home, according to recently released FBI records.  The claim came from an ex-agent with the Bureau of Diplomatic Security who served as part of her security detail while in office.  A 100-page dossier also provides evidence of claims that Clinton's staff tried to convince the FBI to downgrade the classification of some emails on her private server in return for more special agents stationed abroad.

Hillary Stole State Dept Office Furniture To Furnish Her DC Home, FBI Docs Reveal.  Hillary Clinton and her husband Bill Clinton were previously caught stealing furniture from the White House when they left in 2000.  But now, it seems Hillary is a bit of a kleptomaniac.

FBI Docs:  Hillary Clinton Removed Furniture from State Department to Furnish D.C. Home.  An unnamed State Department staffer disclosed to the FBI that Hillary Clinton and her staff took lamps and furniture from the State Department to furnish Clinton's D.C. residence, according to FBI documents.  The FBI document of this exchange is part of "The Vault," which is a collection of documents providing evidence for federal investigators looking into Clinton's private email server.  Most of the documents are testimonies provided to federal investigators in interviews the agents conducted with witnesses.

Hillary Clinton accused of stealing furniture from the State Department.  Hillary Clinton swiped State Department furniture to decorate her Washington home, a former member of her security detail has alleged to the FBI.  "Early in Clinton's tenure as secretary of state, she and her staff were observed removing lamps and furniture from the State Department which were transported to her residence in Washington, DC," an agent on the detail told the FBI.  The agent "does not know whether these items were ever returned to the government," according to FBI notes.

The FBI's Own Investigation Summary Proves Hillary Clinton Broke The Law.  According to documents released today [10/17/2016], Undersecretary of State Patrick Kennedy pressured a senior FBI official into unclassifying emails sent from Hillary Clinton's illegal private server.  The FBI official notes that Kennedy contacted the organization to ask for the change in classification in "exchange for a 'quid pro quo.'"  More specifically, "State would reciprocate by allowing the FBI to place more agents in countries where they are presently forbidden," according to a conversation relayed by The Weekly Standard's Stephen Hayes, who broke the story this weekend.  The FBI did not take Kennedy up on his offer.

Trump Is Right to Point Out That Clinton Should Be Prosecuted.  Mrs. Clinton appears to have committed serious crimes that undermined both national security and recordkeeping rules designed to promote accountability in government.  If you want to talk about a truly profound threat to democratic norms, that's the place to start.  Obviously, these offenses are not just relevant but essential to the political case that should be made against Clinton, and would be by any opponent, not just by the unconventional, undisciplined Trump.  Also pertinent is the fact that government officials who engage in Clinton's type of misconduct do go to jail — to refrain from stating this would be to diminish the gravity of the crimes.

The Clinton Record.  Never in American history has anyone as unfit and undeserving as Hillary Clinton run for U.S. President.  While she stands on the threshold of being elected to the White House, she quite literally belongs in a prison cell.  This article lays out the case against her, chapter and verse. [...] In the final analysis, Hillary Clinton is a woman with a mindset that is totalitarian in every respect.  To make matters worse, she is a lying, deceiving, manipulative, self-absorbed criminal without a shred of personal virtue.

Hacker claims video of Hillary making racist remarks, other bombshells to be released.  An anonymous hacker took to the 4chan message boards to deliver a potentially huge message:  a devastating blow to the Democratic Party and Clinton is imminent.  The hacker posted that, "All 33k deleted Emails are going to be released by November 1st.  [P]robably in 4 [to] 5 sets.  [T]hese emails are going to be the complete undoing of the Democratic Party.  We are purposely holding them back so they cannot have time to replace Hillary."  He adds that he is not working with Russia, but knows six videos of Hillary will be released.  One of which shows Clinton making racist remarks to a black woman[.]  "The amount of hatred seen on her face for their community will be worse than 100 TrumpTapes," he claims.

Clinton Backed Egypt's Muslim Brotherhood Regime.  The documents were released under a Freedom of Information Act request seeking information on the Obama administration's secret 2011 Presidential Study Directive-11, or PSD-11.  The directive, according to officials familiar with its contents, outlined how the administration would seek to support the Muslim Brotherhood around the world despite the Islamist supremacist organization providing the ideological underpinning for jihadist terrorism for both al Qaeda and its successor, the Islamic State.  U.S. backing for Morsi's Muslim Brotherhood regime in Egypt was derailed by the Egyptian military a year after the meeting.  Morsi, the first democratically elected head of state in Egyptian history, was ousted in a coup after he had sought to consolidate power by granting himself unlimited authority in what pro-democracy critics called an Islamist coup.

Trump Makes The Case For Jailing Hillary.  At the lowest point in the second presidential debate Hillary Clinton tried to blame her compulsive lying on Abraham Lincoln. [...] The majority of the country holds an unfavorable view of her.  Even in a blue state like California, 53 percent of the voters have an unfavorable view of the woman they are most likely going to end up voting for.  It's not just that Hillary is a liar and a crook.  Plenty of politicians are.  It's that her dishonesty and corruption are so blatant as to be insulting to the intelligence of even the dimmest voter.  Hillary's lies come apart within 5 minutes of being told.  And yet nothing is ever her fault.

Trump [was the] Big Winner Over Three Opponents.  Trump was smart to trust his instinct to fight and not follow the advice of all the pundits who said he had to grovel and not bring up the Bubba card.  Trump brought four of Bill's victims who were attacked and smeared by Hillary as part of the cover-up of "bimbo eruptions".  Trump also brought the woman who was the 12-year-old rape victim of a 41-year-old man represented by Hillary, who laughed about how she got the rape charge reduced.  The presence of the women victims forced Hillary's cheerleaders, the MSM, to acknowledge that these were victims of rape and sexual harassment, not "infidelities", and that these were real people, not abstractions.

Why Doesn't The Media Ask Hillary About State Dept./ Clinton Foundation Ties To Russia?  [Scroll down]  On the other hand, the media is ignoring the financial connections between Hillary Clinton, the Clinton Foundation, and Russia that suggest Hillary Clinton has already shown favoritism toward Russia.  When she was secretary of state, Clinton made deals with Clinton Foundation donors, one resulted in Russian control of 20% of American uranium reserves, another gave Putin access to our military technology.  In April 2015 the NY Times disclosed a deal which enabled Russia to own about 20% of the uranium production capacity of the United States for a $2.35 million donation to the Clinton Family Foundation.  According to the report a Canadian based company Uranium One, owned the uranium assets was being purchased by Russian state atomic energy agency Rosatom — a deal which had to be approved by various U.S. agencies including the State Department.  Canadian records show that while the State Department was mulling of the deal, the family foundation of Chairman of Uranium One made four donations totaling $2.35 million to the Clinton Family Foundation.

Bombshell Report:  Hillary Clinton Mentioned 'Drone Strike' To Take Out Julian Assange.  If you do not know who Julian Assange is by now you're missing a lot of very important things.  Assange is the founder of WikiLeaks.  WikiLeaks has made major news as of late by releasing hacked emails and voicemails by the Democratic National Committee, causing much turmoil and infighting within the Democratic Party.  It forced the resignation of Deborah Wasserman Schultz.  Did Hillary Clinton bring up assassinating him?  According to True Pundit, that is something that the then Madam Secretary of State considered.

PolitiFact Fails to Whitewash Hillary Clinton Uranium Scandal.  Purported fact-checking outlet PolitiFact has run another Uranium One-Rosatom-Clinton State Department story first reported by The New York Times (NYT) and based on research from the NYT bestseller Clinton Cash.  The article flat-out ignores several key facts and conflicts of interest, potentially damaging to the Democratic presidential nominee.  The most recent Uranium One fact-check article was researched by Tom Kertscher and edited by Greg Borowski.  In July, PolitiFact staff writer Linda Qiu published a piece full of factual errors, glaring inaccuracies, and omissions.

Clinton Foundation's Latest Scandal Involves Payments For "Exclusive Access To New Lime Production" In Haiti.  In the media's latest blatant attempt to "criminalize behavior that is normal", the Wall Street Journal recently highlighted yet another questionable pay-for-play allegation between Bill Clinton, the Clinton Foundation and a powerful European perfume industry trade group called the Fragrance Foundation.  The alleged scandal begins with a $260,000 payment to Bill Clinton for a January 2014 speech to the Fragrance Foundation and ends with Firmenich International, one of the world's largest fragrance and flavoring suppliers, getting access to an exclusive supply of limeoil from Haiti with a little help from their new friends at the Clinton Foundation...but only after another $200,000 of "donations" to a Clinton Foundation company, based in Haiti, called the Acceso Peanut Enterprise Corporation.

Exclusive: Clinton Foundation AIDS Program Distributed 'Watered-Down' Drugs To Third World Countries.  Former President Bill Clinton and his Clinton Health Access Initiative (CHAI) distributed "watered-down" HIV/AIDs drugs to patients in sub-Saharan Africa, and "likely increased" the risks of morbidity and mortality, according to a draft congressional report obtained by The Daily Caller News Foundation.  The congressional report, titled, "The Clinton Foundation and The India Success Story," was initiated by Rep. Marsha Blackburn, a Tennessee Republican and vice-chair of the House Energy and Commerce Committee.

NBC's Chuck Todd: 'Who Cares' Hillary Clinton Associates Pushed Birther Rumors in 2008?  Sunday on NBC's "Meet The Press, while interviewing Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump's campaign manager Kellyanne Conway, host Chuck Todd asked "who cares," about former McClatchy D.C. bureau chief James Asher tweeting that Sidney Blumenthal, a former aide to President Bill Clinton and long-time advisor to Hillary Clinton, "told me in person" that Obama was born in Kenya in 2008.

2 Clinton supporters in '08 reportedly shared Obama 'birther' story.  Two supporters of Hillary Clinton's 2008 presidential campaign reportedly shared the claim that then-rival Barack Obama was not born in the United States and thus was not eligible to be president.  One was a volunteer in Iowa, who was fired, Clinton's former campaign manager said Friday [9/16/2016].  The other was Clinton confidant Sidney Blumenthal, according to a former McClatchy Washington Bureau chief.

The Editor says...
Barack H. Obama's legal qualifications for the office of President were and are suspect, even if he was born in the United States.  He may be a citizen of Indonesia, or Kenya, or both.  That's probably why his college transcripts are still secret to this day.  In addition, his Social Security Number appears to belong to someone other than Mr. Obama, which of course is identity theft, which would be necessary to obtain a Social Security number without U.S. citizenship.  Obama's own grandmother says she witnessed Obama's birth — in Kenya.  Obama's alleged birth certificate has been flashed briefly to one reporter on one occasion and its authenticity has been found to be suspect, at best.  The most likely explanation for Obama's forgery of his own birth certificate is that his original birth certificate showed that his biological father was unknown.  Covering up this illegitimacy is apparently worth the risk of engaging in forgery.  (I don't understand why.  I'd much rather deal honestly with a checkered past than engage in forgery of official documents.)  Mr. Obama a/k/a Barry Soetoro has been a fraud from day one, and any attempt to prove his ineligibility is met with the derogatory label of "birther."  One thing the Clinton team does well is dig up opposition research on their opponents.  If they thought something was fishy with Obama's background, there must have been a reason.  Donald Trump is credited by the news media as putting this matter to rest by claiming that Obama was born in the U.S.  "Period."  That doesn't prove anything, nor does it resolve any of several other questions about Obama's murky history.

A Helpful Step-By-Step Guide To Defending Every Clinton Scandal.  Sure, Clintonism has left thousands of lies strewn across 40 years of political life.  As we hop from one scandal to the next — some far more serious than others — Americans have been forced to deal with the mendacity in different ways.  For liberal partisans, it often entails untethering arguments from consistency, logic, or principles and concocting ways to rationalize their actions.  It's not as hard as it sounds.

Illness only thing Hillary Clinton can't seem to escape from.  The media can shield her from Whitewater and Filegate and Travelgate.  The FBI can broom her multiple felonies in the email scandal.  They can all look the other way on the cattle futures and Vince Foster and all the other scandals that are Hillary Clinton.  But all of her protectors and apologists can't do [any]thing about her failing health — and it's driving them crazy.

Hillary Clinton Shamelessly Lies While Lecturing a Navy Vet About Handling Classified Information.  Wednesday night [9/7/2016] during NBC's Commander-in-Chief national security forum, former Secretary of State and Democrat presidential candidate Hillary Clinton was repeatedly put on the defensive over her use of multiple private email servers and her compromising of U.S. national security.  During the forum a Navy Veteran, who held a top secret compartmentalized security clearance during his service, explained to Clinton that if he had transmitted classified information in the way she did multiple times on a private system, he would have been prosecuted and imprisoned.  Clearly irritated, Clinton responded by again lying about transmitting marked classified information and lectured the veteran about how classified information works.

If Hillary Is Corrupt, Congress Should Impeach Her.  Given that, through the last quarter-century of our politics, we have learned that pending Clinton scandals are interrupted only by new Clinton scandals, it comes as no surprise that my point has just been proven by a scandal that erupted last week.  It's actually a new scandal based on an old scandal — the "old" one, of course, emanating from the former secretary of state's lawless homebrew server system, implemented for the specific purpose of avoiding the recordkeeping and disclosure requirements of federal law.  In keeping with page one of the Clinton-media playbook, any scandal that emerges on Friday night is "old news" by Monday morning.

Clinton Faces Probe for Obstruction of Justice.  The chairman of the House oversight panel on Tuesday [9/6/2016] formally requested the top federal prosecutor for the District of Columbia investigate Hillary Clinton for obstruction of justice.  Rep. Jason Chaffetz, the Utah Republican who chairs the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee, sent a letter to U.S. Attorney Channing Phillips citing the investigative files the FBI turned over last week. [...] In asking for the obstruction probe, Chaffetz cited evidence that a contractor working for Clinton deleted email archives in March 2015, despite knowing they were the subject of a congressional subpoena.

If You Think Hillary's Not Honest, Well, You're A Sexxxxxist.  Wait, did writer Heidi M Przybyla, and by extension, USA Today, just say that only women are the ones who would set up an against the rules server, destroy her Blackberry's with a hammer, wipe said server when got caught, lie about it constantly, transmit classified information, sharing it with people who should not have access to the material, etc and so on?  You know the story.  She did things that would see the rest of us, and our subordinates, in jail.  Are they claiming that only a woman would be this incompetent?  Or, perhaps they are referring to Hillary spending most of her time fundraising and hobknobbing with the uber-rich, charging their kids $2,700 to ask her a question?  Or, maybe it's the way she refuses to do press conferences?  That she won't ask questions of the press, and instead offers them chocolates?

House GOP Leader Asks US Attorney to Investigate Clinton for Destruction of Evidence.  The chairman of the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee, Republican Jason Chaffetz of Utah, sent a letter to U.S. Attorney for Washington, D.C. Channing Phillips, requesting that he investigate Hillary Clinton for potential destruction of evidence.  This was based on information disclosed by the FBI that a tech firm that Clinton hired to manage her private server deleted thousands of emails.  In the letter, Chaffetz said that "the Committee has identified a sequence of events that may amount to obstruction of justice and destruction of evidence by Secretary Clinton and her employees and contractors."

Federal Prosecutor Called On to Investigate Hillary Clinton for 'Obstruction of Justice'.  Hillary Clinton was let off the hook earlier this summer when The Department of Justice hastily dropped the mysterious case of the missing emails.  The flurry of activity coinciding around that curious decision was punctuated by an odd press conference delivered by FBI Director James Comey, followed by a pronouncement by Attorney General Loretta Lynch that 'of course, she'd be taking the advice of the FBI and would cease investigation of Mrs. Clinton posthaste.'  As is always the case with the Clintons, there is more to the story.  Signaling that a Hillary Clinton presidency would truly be a historically fractious one, the Chairman of the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee has now issued a call for the federal prosecutor to investigate Hillary Clinton for "obstruction of justice."

Judicial Watch:  Congress could start impeaching Clinton NOW even though she's out of office.  Tom Fitton, president of the conservative open government group Judicial Watch, made the startling disclosure even as a leading House committee chairman have written the FBI seeking an investigation into whether Clinton committed perjury during testimony about her emails before a House Benghazi committee.  'One of the dirty little secrets in Washington is that Mrs. Clinton can be impeached now,' said Fitton in an interview.  'A federal official leaving office does not end congressional jurisdiction over impeachment for misconduct in that office.  'And if she was convicted by the Senate the sanction could be ineligibility for future office.'

Media Orgs Donate to Clinton Foundation Then Downplay Clinton Foundation Scandal.  Hillary Clinton and her media allies have been working overtime to put out numerous fires that continue to pop up and spread during the final weeks of her campaign for president.  Recently, the flames have gotten more difficult to smother as reports of Clinton's frail health have bled into the mainstream media, despite the unanimous and unilateral decision by the MSM to treat anyone who even raises a question as akin to a Holocaust denier.  (On Sunday night, for example, Huffington Post fired contributor David Seaman and deleted his columns simply for linking to a Hillary health video that's been viewed four million times.)

Anthony Weiner, Part 3: The Clintonization of Politics Begins.  Given his compulsion toward self-destructive behavior, Anthony Weiner is actually lucky sending revealing photos to girls is his thing.  If it were liquor, he'd probably already be lying in the gutter on Skid Row.  If it were heroin, he'd probably be dead by now. [...] But that's his business, and we can only wish it would remain his business.  For the rest of us, having the Weiner scandal on the front pages is an early reminder of what it's like having the Clinton family and its hangers-on at the center of American politics.

Hillary Clinton's run-out-the-clock strategy.  She is not planning on sitting for another televised armchair confessional to rehash regrets about a private email server.  Nor is the campaign setting up the kind of war room employed last year to discredit a book that aimed to expose a quid-pro-quo relationship between Clinton Foundation donors and State Department officials.  With 75 days until Election Day and new emails once again casting a pall over her campaign, Hillary Clinton aims to "run out the clock," confidants say, on the latest chapters of the overlapping controversies that have dogged her campaign since the start.  According to allies and operatives close to the campaign, Clinton's team thinks "they can ride out" any negative reaction to a set of new emails that show Clinton Foundation officials trying to set up State Department meetings for donors during her tenure as the nation's top diplomat.

Now Hillary has a big Clinton Foundation problem, too.  Let's stipulate two things here before I go any further:  1. Correlation is not causation.  2. Quid pro quos are very, very, very hard to prove.  But, COME ON, MAN.  It is literally impossible to look at those two paragraphs and not raise your eyebrows.  Half of all of the nongovernmental people Clinton either met with or spoke to on the phone during her four years at the State Department were donors to the Clinton Foundation!  HALF.  And those 85 people donated $156 million, which, according to my calculator, breaks down to an average contribution just north of $1.8 million.

George Soros — The Hillary Democrats' Billionaire Puppetmaster?  A massive hack of socialist billionaire George Soros' Open Society Foundations suggests that his various nonprofit organizations are little more than fronts for his many political activities.  His growing closeness to Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton should be a warning to all.  The hack by a group called DC Leaks, includes 2,576 files from various Soros groups from 2008 to 2016.

Shadow Government:  Wikileaks Exposes George Soros Controlling Clinton.  This begs the question that both myself and countless others have been asking forever... who is a vote for Hillary Clinton REALLY for?  Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton have long been George Soros puppets, and George Soros doesn't care about the United States.  He cares about a one world governments.  There will be a series of links at the bottom with dozens of stories most Hillary voters have never heard, largely because it's Soros and his globalist buddies who own our media, and see to it that people get as little information as possible.

Soros hack begins to reveal the puppet strings.  George Soros is the closest thing to a real life Bond villain that I have come across — fabulously wealthy, secretive, and pulling the strings and calling the shots of governments all over the world.  He uses nonprofit organizations (so-called NGOs — non-governmental organizations) as tax-sheltered means of accomplishing his political and financial goals (the two are closely intertwined — this is a man widely believed to have made over a billion dollars from a run on the British Pound).  Now, thanks to the massive hack of his files over a period of years, we are starting to get a picture of the means by which he manipulates.

Senator Rand Paul Discusses Potential For Clinton Indictment Based on WikiLeaks Claim.  WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange has stated his organization believes they are in possession of emails which prove Hillary Clinton was aware of the transfer of weapons from Libya, through Turkey, into Syria.  If Assange is accurate, the prior congressional testimony of Clinton becomes another example of her deception and fraud.

From Whitewater to Benghazi:  A Clinton-Scandal Primer.  [Scroll down]  This is a pattern with the Clinton family, which has been in the public spotlight since Bill Clinton's first run for office, in 1974:  Something that appears potentially scandalous on its face turns out to be innocuous, but an investigation into it reveals different questionable behavior.  The canonical case is Whitewater, a failed real-estate investment Bill and Hillary Clinton made in 1978.  Although no inquiry ever produced evidence of wrongdoing, investigations ultimately led to President Clinton's impeachment for perjury and obstruction of justice.  With Hillary Clinton leading the field for the Democratic nomination for president, every Clinton scandal — from Whitewater to the State Department emails — will be under the microscope.

Trump Is Dangerous?  [Scroll down]  The "crooked" Hillary meme is now validated by an avalanche of fact.  The Benghazi cover-up, the rigged FBI "investigation" of Clinton's private server, and the more recent rigged DNC national nominating convention are but three recent examples that come to mind.  The great irony of the "crooked Hillary" consensus is that any credible vetting of the Clintons must now be done by hackers, Julian Assange, and WikiLeaks.  With the Hillary tilt, US media has again squandered its single digit objectivity rating on another Clinton shyster.

Orlando shooter's father attends Hillary Clinton rally in Kissimmee.  WPTV happened to notice the man, who has a mustache and was wearing a red hat, behind Clinton.  It was Seddique Mateen, the father of Orlando mass shooter Omar Mateen.

Florida DNC Invites Orlando Terrorist Father to Hillary Clinton Rally — Seddique Mateen Accepts and Attends.  You might remember all of those pictures of Seddique Mateen in Washington DC meeting with State Department officials and Democrat members of congress.  Well apparently Omar's father, Seddique Mateen, a full-throated DNC supporter, accepted the invitation and was caught on camera sitting directly behind Hillary Clinton and cheering for her during the event in Kissimmee.

Was Father Of Orlando Shooter Omar Mateen Invited To Hillary Clinton Rally In Florida?  Another father is causing a stir in the 2016 presidential election.  Less than a week after Donald Trump's feud with Khizr Khan, the father of a deceased Muslin-American soldier who spoke at the Democratic National Convention, conservatives are in an uproar after spotting the father of Orlando Pulse nightclub shooter Omar Mateen at a Hillary Clinton rally Monday [8/8/2016].  During the campaign event in Kissimmee, Florida, Seddique Mateen was standing in the crowd right behind Hillary Clinton as the Democratic presidential nominee spoke.

Orlando gunman Omar Mateen's father cheers at Hillary Clinton rally.  The father of Orlando gunman Omar Mateen has been spotted sitting and cheering behind Hillary Clinton at a rally.  Seddique Mateen attended one of the Democratic presidential nominee's campaign events in Kissimmee, Florida on Monday night [8/8/2016].  His son Omar Mateen carried out America's worst mass shooting, murdering 49 people at the Pulse gay nightclub, earlier this year.  Seddique Mateen later sparked controversy when it emerged he had previously made pro-Taliban comments on a satellite TV show he hosts.

Father of Orlando shooter spotted behind Clinton at rally.  The father of Orlando shooter Omar Mateen was spotted sitting behind Hillary Clinton at a campaign rally in Florida.  Seddique Mateen, whose son carried out the deadliest mass shooting in US history in June at the Pulse nightclub, looked on as Clinton began her speech on Monday [8/8/2016] in Kissimmee recalling the terror attack.

Adviser to Pro-Hillary Super PAC: Campaign Needs To Disavow Mateen and 'Fire the Advance Person'.  On Tuesday's [8/9/2016] broadcast of CNN's "The Lead," CNN Political Commentator and Adviser to a pro-Hillary Super PAC Paul Begala stated that the Clinton campaign should disavow the support it received from Seddique Mateen, the father of the perpetrator of the Pulse nightclub terrorist attack, who showed up to a Clinton rally, and "fire the advance person."

Hillary Barks About Gun Control With Father of Orlando Killer Seated Behind Her.  The main reason Omar was able to kill so many on behalf of Islam before he was stopped was that no one else was armed.  Seddique would like to keep it that way.

Why Was the Orlando Shooter's Father at a Hillary Clinton Rally?  The Taliban-supporting, gay-punishing, father of Orlando mass-murderer Omar Mateen appeared to find the words of Presidential candidate Hillary Clinton appealing as he cheered her on at a campaign rally in Kissimmee (just south of Orlando!). [...] Of course, the fact that the mass-shooter's father was so perfectly placed seated right behind her is probably just a coincidence... but The Clinton campaign was very quick to deny it once social media noticed.

The Editor says...
Members of the audience directly behind a presidential candidate are carefully selected by the staff, usually based on enthusiasm, gender and ethnicity.  This fellow's appearance directly behind Hillary Clinton, but just offset enough to be visible on television, is either a massive blunder by the screeners, or a dog whistle of support for Muslims.  Since there is at least one report stating that he was invited by the DNC, his positioning appears to have been intentional.

Yes, Hillary Clinton Served on the Board of a Company That Funds ISIS.  As the race for the White House heats up, WikiLeaks continues to unveil sensitive information showing ties between the Democratic Presidential nominee Hillary Clinton, foreign governments, and corrupt companies.  In a recent tweet, WikiLeaks reported its unveiling of Clinton's dubious ties to Lafarge, an American company owned by a French conglomerate that, between 2011 and 2013, paid taxes to the Islamic State (ISIS) in order to protect its cement factory 95 miles northeast of Aleppo, Syria.  The arrangements were discovered by the French daily, Le Monde.

3 of 4 NYT bestsellers are anti-Clinton books.  For the first time, three of the top four New York Times nonfiction best sellers are anti-Clinton books.  Two new books jumped to the front of the all-important hardcover nonfiction list just this week:  Armageddon, by Dick Morris and Eileen McGann, and Hillary's America, by Dinesh D'Souza.

How Hillary Clinton Mainstreamed Al-Qaeda Fundraiser Abdurahman Alamoudi.  Right now, prisoner #47042-083, Abdurahman Alamoudi, sits in his cell in a federal prison in Ashland, Kentucky.  It's a long way down from being one of Hillary Clinton's favorite colleagues.  Alamoudi organized White House events during the Bill Clinton administration.  Under Hillary's supervision, he held official positions:  Alamoudi was strategically placed at the White House, the Pentagon, and the State Department.  That is, until he was arrested and convicted in a bizarre Libyan intelligence/al-Qaeda assassination plot to kill the Saudi crown prince.  Later, he was identified by the Treasury Department as an Al-Qaeda fundraiser who had operated inside the United States.  Hillary Clinton and Abdurahman Alamoudi were no mere acquaintances.  According to an affidavit filed in court by Georgetown professor John Esposito, Alamoudi was asked by Hillary Clinton to arrange the first White House Ramadan iftar dinner in 1996: [...]

DNC Lawyers Now Implicated in Email Leaks as Giving 'Pro-Hillary' Advice.  A high profile law firm is now caught up in the DNC WikiLeaks mess.  A group of Bernie Sanders supporters filed a class action lawsuit against the Democratic National Committee, and the now-former chairwoman, Debbie Wasserman-Shultz.  In a letter sent Monday [7/25/2016], they are demanding that attorneys from Perkins Coie LLP be removed from the case due to a conflict of interest.  New emails discovered through the WikiLeaks dump show that attorneys from the law firm have given strategy advice to hurt Sanders, well before he dropped out.  To add fuel to their claim, they've now discovered that attorneys from Perkins Coie are representing both the Democratic National Committee and Clinton's campaign.

Ten Reasons Why Trump Could Win.  [#5]  Trump struggles with embarrassing misdemeanors, Clinton with high crimes.  She may be delighted at not having been indicted, but FBI Director Comey confirmed to the nation that she was an inveterate liar, paranoid, conspiratorial, and incompetent.  That she was not charged only made the FBI seem absurd:  offering a damning hooved, horned, pitchforked, and forked-tailed portrait of someone mysteriously not a denizen of Hell.  Add in the Clinton Foundation syndicate and the fact that lies are lies and often do not fade so easily, and Hillary in the next 15 weeks may average one "liar" and "crooked" disclosure each week — at a rate that even the Trump tax returns and Trump University cannot keep up with.

First Night at GOP Convention Reminds America of Obama Administration's Deadliest Scandals.  [Scroll down]  First the mother of Sean Smith, an information officer who was killed in Benghazi, laid responsibility for her son's death at the feet of Hillary Clinton.  "My son Sean was one of four brave Americans killed during the 2012 terrorist attack at Benghazi.  Sean was a wonderful son and father to my two amazing grandchildren, Samantha and Nathan, now 10 and 11.  He was proud to serve his country with the United States Foreign Service.  The last time I talked to Sean, the night before the terrorist attack, he told me, 'Mom, I am going to die,' Pat Smith said.  "For all of this loss, for all of this grief, for all of the cynicism the tragedy in Benghazi has wrought upon America, I blame Hillary Clinton.  I blame Hillary Clinton personally for the death of my son."

Clinton — a loyal oligarch and a handpicked president.  It should be no surprise that Clinton is under investigation, this time for the blatant misuse of secret documents which she nonchalantly sent through her personal server.  Her continuous lies on this crime are a replay of Watergate.  As the FBI investigation continues, there are rumors that Clinton will face indictment.  I very much doubt it.  The cabal that runs our government, and by extension our lives, seems to like Hillary at a time when alternatives are available.  Much can happen before November, but I think the fix is in for a Clinton presidency.  That will have a disastrous impact on the 1st and 2nd Amendments.  H

Saudi Arabia Has Funded 20% Of Hillary's Presidential Campaign, Saudi Crown Prince Claims.  It is illegal in the United States for foreign countries to try to influence the outcome of elections by funding candidates.  In what may be the pinnacle of hypocrisy, moments ago Hillary Clinton, while speaking live on national security and addressing the Orlando shooting took some time from her constant bashing of the Second Amendment and calling for a ban on assault rifles, to say some less than kind words about Saudi Arabia whom it accused of supporting radical organizations. [...] According to the US Federal Election commission, over the past two years Clinton has raised a little more than $211.8 million.  20% of this sum is $42.4 million.  The report was published (and then mysteriously deleted) on the eve of Prince Mohammed making an official visit to the United States.

Has FBI Director Comey Waited Too Long on Clinton Scandals?  We have regularly cited the various scandals still hanging over Mrs. Clinton's head.  They include the mishandling of classified materials, obstruction of justice, the public corruption scandal in which she used the State Department as leverage for benefitting the Clinton Foundation as well as her family, and Benghazi.  Contrary to President Obama's assertion that he is allowing a non-partisan and full investigation, by endorsing Mrs. Clinton he has placed his hand on the scale of justice and made his wishes more than clear to federal investigators.  The question is, will Director Comey and the FBI follow the President's direction?

Networks Ignore New Details of Bill Clinton's Connections to Pedophile Epstein.  During their Tuesday evening [5/17/2016] newscasts, all of the "big three" networks ignored explosive new details about former President Bill Clinton's relationship with convicted pedophile Jeffery Epstein.  "It's no secret that former President Bill Clinton had a relationship with Jeffrey Epstein," reported Fox News' Shannon Bream on Special Report, "A prominent businessman who went to jail as part of a plea deal he reached while being investigated amid allegations that he was a pedophile, who had sex with scores of underage girls and used his staff to procure the victims."  According to Bream, it was known that the former president had traveled on Epstein's private jet 11 times.  "A jet accusers say was equipped for sex with underage victims and was used to travel to Epstein's private island nicknamed "Orgy Island," Bream stated.  But, newly released documents revealed that Clinton had traveled at least 26 times using Epstein's aircraft to locations "around the globe."  The documents didn't stop there.

Is Orgy Island the new Blue Dress?  Jeffrey Epstein is a name you may be familiar with, or you may not, but if media rumors are true, expect to hear about him much more in the coming weeks.  Epstein is a good pal of President Bill Clinton's.  Epstein is also a registered sex offender who got himself into trouble soliciting and procuring the services of underaged girls.

Clinton's Crimes and Comey's Choice.  FBI Director James Comey knew he had to make a decision that would change his life, and maybe the history of his country, as he surveyed the piles of papers spread out in his office.  The Deputy Director in charge of the investigation of Hillary Clinton — a criminal investigation, not some benign "security review" as the Clintonistas had tried to spin it — sat quietly, letting his boss think.  The evidence was overwhelming.  Hillary Clinton was clearly guilty of multiple felonies, and the Obama Department of Justice was not going to prosecute her.  Now, it fell to Director Comey to decide what he would do about it.

Hillary's team prepares for the worst as she finds herself in a perfect storm of legal misery.  Last week, Mrs.  Clinton's five closest advisers when she was Secretary of State, four of whom remain close to her and have significant positions in her presidential campaign, were interrogated by the FBI.  These interrogations were voluntary, not under oath, and done in the presence of the same legal team which represented all five aides.  The atmosphere was confrontational, as the purpose of the interrogations is to enable federal prosecutors and investigators to determine whether these five are targets or witnesses.  Stated differently, the feds need to decide if they should charge any of these folks as part of a plan to commit espionage, or if they will be witnesses on behalf of the government should there be such a prosecution; or witnesses for Mrs. Clinton.

The FBI may be looking at a violation of the Constitution in their Hillary investigation.  Section 9 of the U.S. Constitution forbids office holders from accepting anything of value from a foreign state, yet husband Bill Clinton collected $1 million from the Abu Dhabi government while Hillary was secretary of state.  Bill Clinton spoke at the Abu Dhabi Global Environmental Data Initiative (AGEDI) on December 13, 2011 and received a speaking fee of $500,000.  The AGEDI is a program funded by the Abu Dhabi government, so the source of the funds was the government itself.  Although the fee was paid to Bill, Hillary equally benefited from the payment.  In effect, she accepted money from a foreign state.

The Most Uninteresting Woman in the World.  As the old saying goes, "where there's smoke there's always fire", and in the case of Hillary Clinton it is more true now than it ever has been, seemingly with new revelations about her e-mails and corruption in the Clinton Foundation coming out almost every day.  But also like the Everyready Bunny that just keeps "going and going", Hillary Clinton is determined to continue her life-long quest for the White House amidst what seems to be more and more scandal.  And while any 'normal' person might devote their efforts towards clearing their name and restoring their reputation, apparently there's no shame in Hillary.  Just the ultra-ambition of winning the White House at all costs.  It's a personal obsession that she just can't control.

Judge Nap:  FBI Has 'Overwhelming' Evidence to Indict and Convict Hillary.  On "The O'Reilly Factor" last night [4/21/2016], Judge Andrew Napolitano said the FBI is in the final stages of its investigation into Hillary Clinton and her private email server, and he believes the agency has more than enough evidence to indict and convict her.  He explained that the FBI doesn't make a recommendation about an indictment to the Justice Department, since they are working in tandem with the Justice Department.  FBI investigators don't do anything without being under the supervision of department prosecutors, he said.

The Clinton E-mail Case Transcends Hillary's Presidential Campaign.  When friends ask me about the 2016 presidential campaign, my answer is always the same:  It is a matter of "if," not "when," exploding bombshells from the Clinton e-mail investigation quickly transform the current political landscape.  One could argue that the future integrity of our nation rests on how the Justice Department resolves the case.  The political bombs will begin to explode when the outcome of the FBI investigations are announced or leaked.  Finally, there will be concrete answers to questions that have dogged Clinton's presidential campaign for over a year.

Bernie Sanders will remain the true Democratic front-runner until the FBI finishes its Investigation.  [T]his election season has been a bizarre case study in group think and competing narratives.  At first, Bernie couldn't win and Hillary was inevitable.  Now, Bernie almost won, but apparently lost because of New York, and the FBI is simply a minor speed bump on the road to the White House.  Tomorrow, Clinton will claim victory is just around the corner, even without knowledge of the FBI's verdict.

This Feisty Nonprofit Could Be Hillary's Biggest Problem To Win The White House.  U.S. District Court Judge Royce Lamberth confirmed Judicial Watch's central role in exposing former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton's use of a private email address and a home-brew server to conduct official business when he granted limited discovery to the conservative government watchdog March 29.  Judicial Watch could hold an even more influential role if it is able to uncover additional information surrounding the scandals through this discovery process — a legal device litigants use to gain pre-trial evidence under oath from an adverse witness.

Clinton superdelegate disbarred while awaiting prison sentencing - still a superdelegate.  Just a quick update on the superdelegate situation for the Democrats this evening.  Normally we'd be talking about which of the army of superdelegates is backing which candidate or how they might make the process a tad bit more democratic in nature, but this story has to do with who will (or more to the point, won't) be attending the festivities in Philadelphia.  You may recall that we earlier talked about one of Hillary Clinton's long time friends and supporters who also happens to be a superdelegate, Sheldon Silver.  The disgraced former Speaker of the State Assembly in New York was previously convicted of a raft of corruption charges and is currently awaiting sentencing where he could receive up to 130 years behind bars.

Why a no-indictment for Hillary Clinton would still be a problem for America.  There is a school of people — a big school, judging from my email — for whom there are only two possibilities:  Either Clinton is charged with a crime for mishandling classified information on her private server — an outcome, this group thinks, that should be devastatingly obvious to anyone with half a brain.  Or the Justice Department will squelch the indictment out of a politically motivated desire to protect the likely Democratic presidential nominee.  The only disagreement here involves whether Attorney General Loretta E.  Lynch will act on her own or under orders from President Obama.  Heads, Clinton's indicted; tails, they're corrupt.

Consequences Are for Schmucks.  Mrs. Clinton, who may very well be the next president of these United States, has been on a decades-long crime spree, from profiting on dodgy cattle futures to obstructing justice with the Rose law-firm records to her top-secret toilet-based e-mail shenanigans. [...] People like Hillary Rodham Clinton do not go to jail without first becoming governor of Illinois or mayor of Detroit, and Herself always has her sights set on a higher office than those.

Napolitano: Clinton's Answer to Indictment Question Demonstrates Ignorance and Deceit.  On Fox News Thursday, Judge Andrew Napolitano discussed Hillary Clinton's answer to being asked about her email server and possible indictment during the Univision Democratic presidential debate the prior night.  He said that her answers to these questions showed her natural inclination to not tell the truth, as well as her ignorance of the law.

Judge Napolitano: Indictment Certain in Clinton Email Scandal Before November.  Expect the indictment of former United States Secretary of State Hillary Clinton or one or more of her high-level aides from the State Department in the next few months.  Fox News Senior Judicial Analyst Andrew Napolitano explained in a Fox Business panel discussion last week that the granting of immunity against self-incrimination to Bryan Pagliano, who helped set up the private email server for Clinton that is central to an ongoing investigation by the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI), means the Department of Justice intends to secure indictment of a person or people up the "totem pole" from Pagliano in the Hillary Clinton email scandal.  Concludes Napolitano, "I think there will surely be indictments prior to November."

Clinton's Laughable Claim: Petraeus Offense Was Worse.  For months it has been obvious that a serious criminal investigation of the former secretary of State's reckless mishandling of classified information has been underway.  Yet Camp Clinton has maintained that the government is merely engaged in a "security inquiry" that is focused on the physical server itself — not a probe of criminal suspects.  This has never made sense.  The FBI, which has assigned many agents to the case, is in the criminal investigation business.  Plus, when the now-immunized former staffer, Bryan Pagliano, invoked his Fifth Amendment privilege in refusing to testify before the House Benghazi committee, it signaled that he feared truthful answers would incriminate him.  Now with Pagliano apparently poised to cooperate with the FBI, the claim that Mrs. Clinton is not a criminal suspect is untenable.  So Clinton and her supporters are changing tack:  instead of implausibly insisting there is no crime to investigate, they argue that there is no crime worth prosecuting.

Hillary's Victories Mean Painful Legal Choices for DOJ, WH.  Few jobs are as demanding as the U.S. attorney general's.  The AG's popularity peaks at the swearing-in ceremony and goes downhill from there.  It's not just the hard cases on the docket.  It's that attorneys general have two mandates that sometimes conflict.  Do they follow their responsibilities as the nation's chief law enforcement officer, wherever those responsibilities lead?  Or do they act as the president's top appointee in law enforcement and do his bidding?  AGs do not keep their jobs unless they know which mandate takes priority.  They serve at the president's pleasure.  This bedrock choice between blind justice and political calculation is almost certain to confront Loretta Lynch once the FBI concludes its investigation into Hillary Clinton, her top aides, and the Clinton Foundation.

Hillary's toast.  All the theoretical scenarios being bandied about regarding the 2016 Presidential race are based on the assumption that Hillary Clinton will be the Democrats' candidate for president.  I believe this is a case of wishful thinking mixed with intellectual torpor, as I think Hillary Clinton will not be the Democrats' candidate.  First of all, her negatives and public personae are such that many voters would just as soon eat their ballots than vote for her.  That, however, is the least of her worries.  There's the small matter of the FBI investigation into improper use of a private email server to send and receive highly classified documents with national security implications.  While conventional wisdom posits that the Justice Department would not dare prosecute the president-in-waiting, I believe this to be a classic bait & switch on the part of the Obama Administration to lull the unsuspecting Clintons into a false sense of security.

Forget Hillary — Does America really need Bill Clinton back in the White House?  Hillary Clinton is not merely a flawed candidate — she is a pant-suited catastrophe dragging down her party.  It's not merely that she is old chronologically, but that she has been around for so long that the collective weight of her failures, scandals and missteps make her vulnerable to a guy who proudly labels himself a "socialist."  It's no surprise that she got thumped when the New Hampshire primary voters who value honesty/trustworthiness went 91 percent with Bernie Sanders.  From big scores in cattle futures to Whitewater shenanigans to her rapacious Clinton Foundation to her Benghazi dereliction of duty to an email scandal that would have seen any lesser mortal carted off to federal prison, Hillary is a political hot mess.

The Democrats' Likely Nominee Appears to Be a Felon — This Is Not Business as Usual.  For all the surreal projection of normalcy, the race is enveloped by an extremely serious criminal investigation.  If press reporting is to be believed — in particular, the yeoman's work of Fox News's Catherine Herridge and Pamela K. Browne — Hillary Clinton, the likely nominee of one of the two major parties, appears to have committed serious felony violations of federal law.  That she has the audacity to run despite the circumstances is no surprise — Clinton scandals, the background music of our politics for a quarter-century, are interrupted only by new Clinton scandals.  What is shocking is that the Democrats are allowing her to run.

The Clintons' Mind-Boggling Damage to National Security.  [Scroll down]  If it is true that Hillary Clinton had SAP information on her unsecure server, whether it was marked or not, you can be sure that the FBI will strongly recommend that charges be brought against Hillary Clinton and continue in an exhaustive investigation to trace back to every single person that had even the tiniest role in this unbelievable security compromise.  If the Attorney General, through "prosecutorial discretion," elected not to prosecute this crime, I believe Congress would have no alternative but to impeach her, and the FBI would then have no choice but to conduct a criminal investigation of her for a deliberate cover up — so grave is this security violation.  If President Obama were to pardon Hillary Clinton for a compromise of this magnitude he would render himself in the historical record as an "enemy of the state," and could himself face criminal prosecution — so grave is such a security compromise.

Hillary can't dodge Goldman Sachs questions forever.  Over the last 16 months, Clinton raked in at least $30 million — chiefly, the New York Times reports, from closed-to-the-press speeches to corporations, banks, etc.  Care to bet on any other ex-secretary of state being so "lucky"?  Interest in just what Clinton could deliver in exchange for such largesse has prompted many requests over the last year for transcripts.  She has consistently refused.  For the record, we doubt it's anything too shocking.  Most likely, she just doesn't want to be outed as having been kissy-kissy with the likes of Goldman chief Lloyd Blankfein.  Why give a gift to Bernie Sanders when he has already tied her in the polls?

The Clinton Tapes: What Is Hillary Hiding In Those Secret Goldman Sachs Transcripts?  Hillary Clinton's lucrative speeches to Goldman Sachs back in 2013 have suddenly become a political liability for the already beleaguered front runner, as pressure mounts for her to release transcripts of those remarks.  Bernie Sanders brought up the speeches — three of which earned Clinton $675,000 — weeks ago in an attempt to undermine Clinton's credibility as a "progressive," but the controversy has recently taken on a life of its own.  In a video posted on the leftist news site The Intercept in late January, one of Intercept's reporters asked Clinton if she would release the transcripts of the speeches.  Her dismissive response, in which she merely laughed and turn away, has spread across the Internet.

It was Clinton who required transcripts of her speeches.  Hillary Clinton, who faces mounting pressure to release transcripts of her paid speeches, routinely demanded that a stenographer be present at her events so she could maintain a record of what she said.  At least four of Clinton's contracts include a clause stating a transcript would be produced for Clinton and that the former secretary of state would own them and control their release, according to contracts obtained by McClatchy.  "The sponsor will transcribe Speaker's remarks as they are being delivered, which should be solely for the Speaker's records," according to her contract with the University of Buffalo, which paid her $275,000.

What Clinton Said in Her Paid Speeches.  When Hillary Clinton spoke to Goldman Sachs executives and technology titans at a summit in Arizona in October of 2013, she spoke glowingly of the work the bank was doing raising capital and helping create jobs, according to people who saw her remarks.  Clinton, who received $225,000 for her appearance, praised the diversity of Goldman's workforce and the prominent roles played by women at the blue-chip investment bank and the tech firms present at the event.  She spent no time criticizing Goldman or Wall Street more broadly for its role in the 2008 financial crisis.

Feminists Melt Down Over Unlikable Hillary Clinton.  After months of polls, pontification, and fevered speculation, the Iowa caucuses — and with them, the first official votes of the 2016 presidential primary — are finally in America's taillights.  The biggest loser, at least according to conventional wisdom, might be Donald Trump, who came in second to Ted Cruz, almost lost to Marco Rubio, and eventually erupted in an epic Twitter meltdown, complete with accusations of foul play and a dramatic demand to redo the entire Iowa vote.  But there's another loser here, one who has long been overshadowed by the media's love affair with the frenetic Mr. Trump.  That would be Hillary Clinton, America's supposed feminist icon who barely squeaked past wild-eyed, tufty-haired socialist Bernie Sanders.  According to the latest counts in Iowa — counts that may yet be challenged by the Sanders camp — Clinton "won" by fewer than four delegates, with the help of at least six coin tosses.

Des Moines Register calls for audit of Iowa results: 'Something smells in the Democratic Party'.  In a strongly worded editorial on Thursday [2/4/2016], The Des Moines Register called on the Iowa Democratic Party to move quickly to prove that Monday's results are correct.  The piece titled "Editorial: Something smells in the Democratic Party," starts out:  "Once again the world is laughing at Iowa."  It gets sharper from there.  "What happened Monday night at the Democratic caucuses was a debacle, period.  Democracy, particularly at the local party level, can be slow, messy and obscure.  But the refusal to undergo scrutiny or allow for an appeal reeks of autocracy," the DMR reads.

Something smells in the Democratic Party.  First of all, the results were too close not to do a complete audit of results.  Two-tenths of 1 percent separated Bernie Sanders and Hillary Clinton.  A caucus should not be confused with an election, but it's worth noting that much larger margins trigger automatic recounts in other states.  Second, too many questions have been raised.  Too many accounts have arisen of inconsistent counts, untrained and overwhelmed volunteers, confused voters, cramped precinct locations, a lack of voter registration forms and other problems.  Too many of us, including members of the Register editorial board who were observing caucuses, saw opportunities for error amid Monday night's chaos.

The Iowa Democratic Party Chair Refusing To Review Caucus Results Is A HUGE Hillary Supporter.  The Iowa Democratic party chair who is refusing to release raw vote totals from Monday's state caucuses is a long-time Hillary Clinton supporter who donated to the politician's various campaigns and who reportedly drives a Buick with the license plate "HRC 2016."  Dr. Andrea "Andy" McGuire has shot down calls to review vote tallies from Monday's contest despite Clinton's razor-thin win over Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders.  The former secretary of state squeaked by the democratic socialist, hauling in 49.9 percent of state delegate equivalents versus Sanders' 49.6 percent.

The Clinton Curse returns.  The FBI's investigation is finding so much additional evidence of wrongdoing by the Clintons and their Clintonistas that the copious evidence is actually impeding the bureau from recommending indictments.  No sooner does the bureau think it has wrapped up one set of indictments than it trips across another category of malfeasance.  For instance, it seems that the FBI has now found the Clintons to have co-mingled their foundation's interests with Hillary's State Department work, and then there is her campaign fundraising, Bill's exorbitant lecture fees, and — who knows — the needs of the Clinton Library.  If Hillary and Bill are lucky, the FBI investigations will be mired in new evidence for months to come.

Former House Oversight chairman: 'FBI director would like to indict Clinton and Abedin'.  California Congressman Darrell Issa, who previously led an investigation into Benghazi as former chairman of the House Oversight Committee, says the FBI "would like to indict both Huma [Abedin] and Hillary Clinton" for conducting sensitive government business on an unsecure, private email server.  "I think the FBI director would like to indict both Huma and Hillary as we speak," the Republican heavyweight told the Washington Examiner Thursday [1/28/2016], during a debate watch-party at Florida Sen. Marco Rubio's New Hampshire campaign headquarters.

Hillary and the Law of the Jungle.  Hillary Clinton claims the email scandal that hovers over her presidential campaign is all about politics.  She's right, but not in the sense that she would like people to believe, i.e., that a "vast right-wing conspiracy" is persecuting her — again.  In fact, she has undoubtedly violated the laws of the United States with her reckless and dangerous use of a private email account that exposed the most highly classified documents the country possesses to foreign intelligence services.  That she has not already been charged and locked up (as would have happened to almost anyone else who did the same) is because of politics.  Under the "law" of the political jungle her status and power have protected her.  But the law of the jungle only protects the strong.  And as Hillary grows weaker politically, her vulnerability to the laws of the United States grows considerably.

DeLay: FBI sources say they're 'ready to indict' Hillary.  Former House Majority Leader Tom DeLay said Monday [1/25/2016] his FBI sources had informed him they are ready to bring charges against Hillary Clinton for mishandling classified information.  "I have friends in the FBI, and they tell me they're ready to indict," DeLay said during an appearance on Newsmax's "Steve Malzberg Show."  "They also say that if the attorney general does not indict, they're going public," the Texas Republican added.

Fallon's fallacies.  [Scroll down]  The "Justice Department inquiry" is in part a euphemism for the FBI investigation.  It also refers to the outcome of the inquiry including prosecutorial decisions.  Whether or not anyone is prosecuted for the wrongs Hilary Clinton has committed is ultimately in part a political decision.  We are capable of making up our own minds based on relevant information.  The lameness of [Brian] Fallon's comment is itself indicative of the vacuity in Clinton's position at this point.  As the Clinton scandal management playbook dictates, Hillary Clinton is playing for time and counting on political considerations to save the day.

The Comey Plan: What An Indictment of Hillary Clinton Would Mean For The Obama Legacy.  In June of 2013, President Barack Obama reached outside the spectrum of political logic to select a former Bush appointed Republican as Director of the Federal Bureau of Investigation.  At 6'8", FBI Director James Comey stands tall amongst his fellow members of the Obama administration not only due to his height, but also his consistent financial support of Republicans John McCain and Mitt Romney in their bids for President.  Why would Obama select a Republican, with nearly four decades of successfully prosecuting high-profile individuals for obstruction of justice and lying to the FBI, to a ten-year appointment as its Director?  To preserve his legacy through the pursuit of justice against Hillary Clinton.

The past, never dead, gains on the Clintons.  Compassionate conservatives, should in the fading spirit of the season just past, spare a tear or two for Bonnie and Clod.  They look out on the world of cash and celebrity they created for themselves, and the thrill is gone.  The past is gaining on them and the future suddenly doesn't look a lot better.

Clinton's 'no individual too big to jail' tweet backfires.  Hillary Clinton's campaign encountered heavy backlash Sunday night [1/17/2016] shortly after tweeting a statement made by Clinton during the fourth Democratic primary debate.  "There should be no bank too big to fail and no individual too big to jail," Clinton told the moderators during the first hour of the debate Sunday [1/17/2016].  Within seconds, the remark was tweeted out to the former secretary of state's five-plus million Twitter followers.

Hillary's subconscious acts up in Dem debate, provides 6 words that will haunt her.  There may still be a reasonable debate on whether or not Hillary Clinton has a conscience, but Sunday night's Democratic presidential debate proves that she does have a subconscious.  That part of her mind put words into her mouth that her conscious mind would rather not admit.  The critical six words:  "No individual too big to jail."

Hillary Clinton's Coming Legal Crisis.  The latest release of Hillary Clinton emails entails real risks for her, churning just beneath the surface of her successful primary campaign.  True, Democratic voters have shown little interest, and the mainstream media only a bit more.  Their focus, when they do look, is on the number of documents now considered classified, their foreign-policy revelations, and the political damage they might cause.  These are vital issues, but Clinton faces a far bigger problem.  She and her closest aides could be indicted criminally.

Hillary's Long Goodbye.  Back in the impeachment days, she could count on the mainstream media to keep a lid on negative information and portray her husband's accusers and investigators as a bunch of sex-obsessed prudes.  Not only has the internet and cable news forever destroyed the cofferdam around embarrassing news these days, substantial chunks of the mainstream media no longer see themselves as guardian of the Clinton empire.

Hillary's problems multiply.  This week, three weeks before the Iowa caucuses, Hillary Clinton spent valuable time during an appearance on "Face the Nation" swatting down stories that surfaced Friday [1/8/2016].  Early on Friday morning when most Americans are asleep, save second-story men, the State Department released thousands of Hillary's emails.  In one she seemed to be asking her aide, Jake Sullivan, to send her classified information across a "non-secure" line.  That is to say, across her personal server.  She was impatient to read the email's contents and could not wait for it to be sent on a secure line.  That strikes a lot of those who follow such matters as a clear breach of the law regarding the handling of classified information, or perhaps I should say another clear breach of the law regarding the use of classified information.  On "Face the Nation," Hillary termed the growing imbroglio a "non-issue."

Key to Hillary conspiracy to subvert classification system revealed?  One of the mysteries of the Hillary email scandal has been how over 1000 emails containing various levels of classified material were sent to Hillary without being "marked" as classified.  It is that lack of emails being "marked" classified "at the time" that is Hillary's central defense.  On September 25, 2015, Kemberlee wrote that there must have been some signal to State Department employees to send the classified material without markings; there's just no way it could be coincidence and Hillary must have known

Clinton Email Scandal Widens.  Judicial Watch is asking for discovery concerning Hillary Clinton's emails in three separate FOIA lawsuits against the State Department:  [#1] Lawsuit against Secretary of State John Kerry to force action on Clinton emails[,]  [#2] Lawsuit for records of talking points given to Ambassador Rice regarding the attack on the U.S. consulate in Benghazi, Libya[,]  [#3] Lawsuit for records on State Department's "Special Government Employment" status for Clinton aide Huma Abedin[.]  Notably, the OIG specifically cites our Benghazi and Abedin FOIA requests listed above as being thwarted by the Clinton State Department's FOIA fraud.  The OIG report also points the finger at Hillary Clinton's then-Chief of Staff Cheryl Mills for supervising an "incorrect" no-records response to the left-wing watchdog CREW's request asking about Hillary Clinton email accounts!

Storm Clouds Form: Bob Woodward Compares Hillary Scandal to Watergate.  Hillary Clinton's e-mail scandal has been a difficult one for the public to understand and for journalists to explain.  But Bob Woodward, the Washington Post reporter who helped uncover Watergate 40 years ago, clarified things a lot on Fox News Sunday today [1/10/2016] when he said that an e-mail in the most recently released batch shows Hillary trying to "subvert the rules" that she expected others to follow.

'150 agents' working Clinton Foundation probe: Ex-U.S. atty.  A former U.S. attorney said the FBI's reported investigation of "public corruption" at the Clinton Foundation has actually been going on for months, although it made headlines for the first time Monday [1/11/2016].  Joseph DiGenova, who was appointed by President Ronald Reagan, said the FBI's foundation probe "has reached such a proportion of inquiry that it's starting to sneak out," but that it was sparked months ago by information pulled from Hillary Clinton's private server and from the tax filings of corporations that have donated to the charity.  "There are now, I am told, 150 agents working on this case," DiGenova told the Washington Examiner Monday, noting that was "a very unusually high number" of investigators to be working on one case.

Hillary's Email: It's a Felony!  Secretary Clinton continues to stand on her statement that none of the e-mail she sent or received had classified markings.  Other folks in the conversation comment that many of the e-mails Secretary Clinton wrote and received were "born classified," at the time she wrote or received them.  We need to cut to the chase.  Somebody committed a felony, likely several.  If, as some reports have indicated, there was certain overhead imagery, marked or unmarked on Secretary Clinton's e-mail server, someone committed a serious crime.  The way government information/automation systems are set up, someone had to take a deliberate series of felonious actions in order for that imagery to get there.

Hillary ordered one of her flunkies to break the law.  In its latest dump of 3,000-plus Hillary Clinton e-mails, the State Department found another 66 to be classified, pushing the total over 1,300.  But two of the non-classified messages were eye-openers.  One tacitly admits her own wrongdoing.  The other orders a flunky to break the law on handling classified info. [...] No word yet on whether [Jake] Sullivan obeyed the order, and so broke federal law — but it's still smoking-gun evidence of a secretary of state ordering up a crime.  Mind you, Hillary Clinton is a lawyer — her degree is from Yale, no less.

The Bells Toll for Hillary.  The Federal Bureau of Investigation will recommend that the Justice Department bring criminal charges against Hillary Clinton and various of her aides, and soon.  The evidence consists of materials that the Bureau has gathered in the course of its months-long investigation of Mrs. Clinton's personal server.  The recommendations will come very soon.  The charges will consist of some of the following:
  1.  Improper disclosure or retention of classified information.
  2.  Destruction of government records.
  3.  Lying to federal agents.
  4.  Lying under oath.
  5.  Obstruction of justice.
All the counts are familiar to those of us who have followed the Clintons for a quarter of a century, but, as one source familiar with the FBI's investigation told me, the evidence has now reached a "critical mass."

Hillary's Watergate Looms.  Of all the welter of predictions for 2016, by far the most dramatic seems to have been given short shrift or swept under the rug — the possible indictment of Hillary Rodham Clinton while running for the presidency.  Were such an event to occur, it would dominate our culture as nothing since Watergate.  Yet most of us put it in the back of our minds, thinking it could never happen and focusing on the latest back and forth with Trump.

Former federal prosecutor says Hillary could be indicted in the next 60 days as the FBI compiles 'overwhelming' evidence against her.  Joe DiGenova, a one-time federal prosecutor originally appointed by President Reagan, told conservative radio host Laura Ingraham Tuesday [1/5/2016] that the FBI's still-pending investigation of Clinton's email server seems to have reached 'a critical mass.'  Congressional Republicans last spring discovered that Clinton used a private, home-based email server in her New York home while she was secretary of state from 2009 to 2013.  The scandal has dogged her presidential campaign for almost the entire past year.

Could Obama be planning a huge surprise for the 2016 election?  The U.K. Daily Mail reports that Joe DiGenova, a one-time federal prosecutor, told radio host Laura Ingraham Tuesday [1/5/2016] "that the FBI's still-pending investigation of Clinton's email server seems to have reached 'a critical mass.'"  Further, "[a] recommendation for prosecution would not only roil the presidential race, but would put President Barack Obama in an unbelievably difficult position."  All well and good, but [...] there are two things we know about Barack:  one, he has an infinite capacity for self-delusion, and two, he hates both Clintons.  So here's a prediction:  if Clinton gets indicted, Michelle Obama gets the Obama team's nod for the nomination.  Can Barack and Michelle pull such a thing off?  No, but the point is that they will think they can.

Hillary Will Be Indicted Says Former U.S. Attorney.  A former U.S. Attorney predicts a Watergate-style showdown in the Department of Justice if Attorney General Loretta Lynch overrules a potential FBI recommendation to indict Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton.  "The [FBI] has so much information about criminal conduct by her and her staff that there is no way that they walk away from this," Joseph diGenova, formerly the District of Columbia's U.S. Attorney, told Laura Ingraham in a Tuesday [1/5/2016] radio interview.  "They are going to make a recommendation that people be charged and then Loretta Lynch is going to have the decision of a lifetime.  "I believe that the evidence that the FBI is compiling will be so compelling that, unless [Lynch] agrees to the charges, there will be a massive revolt inside the FBI, which she will not be able to survive as an attorney general.  It will be like Watergate.  It will be unbelievable."

Former U.S. Attorney: Hillary Could Face Indictment Within 60 Days.  A former U.S. attorney predicted this week that Hillary Clinton "will not make it to the finish line" in 2016 because she will soon be facing a criminal indictment from the FBI.  During an appearance on Laura Ingraham's radio show Tuesday [1/5/2016], famed attorney Joseph DiGenova said that the FBI has "reached a critical mass in their investigation of the secretary and all of her senior staff" and predicted that it would come to a head "in the next 60 days."  DiGenova, who rose to national prominence during the Clinton scandals of the '90s, told Ingraham that if Attorney General Loretta Lynch refuses to indict Clinton, there will be a "massive revolt inside the FBI, which she will not be able to survive as an Attorney General."

Will Hillary be indicted?  Joseph diGenova, a well-respected former U.S. Attorney for the District of Columbia, predicted today that Hillary Clinton will be indicted for crimes connected with her use of a private email server for State Department business.  He made this prediction on Laura Ingraham's radio program.  For Hillary to be indicted, the FBI would have to call for an indictment and the Attorney General would have to approve the recommendation.  FBI director James Comey and Attorney General Loretta Lynch are both Obama appointees.  Comey has a reputation as a straight shooter.  In part, that reputation derives from the independence he displayed as a high-ranking Justice Department official during the administration of President George W. Bush.

Rumor Mill: Hillary Facing Criminal Indictment, Obama 2016 Surprise in the Works.  Opinions on Hillary Clinton's chances in 2016 come in two forms with not much in between:  "It ain't happening" and "Hillary's got it locked in."  We may soon find out which one of those prognostications is right.  Washington insiders are saying that the evidence in the FBI's investigation into Clinton's "unique email arrangement" has reached "critical mass."  The American Spectator's R. Emmett Tyrrell, Jr. joins former prosecutor Joe DiGenova in predicting that a decision to indict is coming soon.

Former U.S. attorney: Clinton could face criminal indictment.  A former U.S. attorney thinks Hillary Clinton could face a criminal indictment from the FBI within the next 60 days.  Joe DiGenova, a Republican U.S. attorney appointed by President Reagan, said Clinton's "biggest problem right now" is the open FBI investigation into the contents of her private emails.  "They have reached a critical mass in their investigation of the secretary and all of her senior staff," DiGenova said Tuesday [1/5/2016] on the "Laura Ingraham Show" radio program.  "And, it's going to come to a head, I would suggest, in the next 60 days."

The sweetheart deal for Bill Clinton's Orgy Island pal may be exposed and overturned.  Tick, tick, tick... the highly suspicious deal that gave Bill Clinton's billionaire buddy Jeffrey Epstein a slap on the wrist for paying underage girls for sex may finally be subjected to pubic scrutiny and even overturned, bringing with it the possibility of bargaining against real punishment in exchange for testimony against a bigger fish.  This development is thanks to a court filing on the last day of 2015 that received only limited local publicity.

Hillary Clinton's 111 Scandals, Lies, and Flip-Flops.  From her email scandal and foundation scandals, to her flip-flops on immigration and profiling Muslims, 2015 was an interesting year for former first lady, senator, and secretary of state Hillary Clinton.  Most of her cover-ups and policy changes were under-reported by the mainstream media or not reported at all.  In reviewing posts put up on this site during the past 12 months, there were 111 articles exposing a lie, scandal or flip flop by the presumptive Democratic Party nominee.  Some of them were early in the year and may have been forgotten, others were scandals that were sub-sets of other scandals.

Hillary Clinton: The criminal investigation keeps moving forward.  While the country has been fixated on Donald Trump's tormenting his Republican primary opponents and deeply concerned about the government's efforts to identify any confederates in the San Bernardino, California, killings, a team of federal prosecutors and FBI agents continues to examine Hillary Clinton's tenure as secretary of state in order to determine whether she committed any crimes and, if so, whether there is sufficient evidence to prove her guilt beyond a reasonable doubt.  What began as an innocent Freedom of Information Act request by Judicial Watch, a D.C.-based public advocacy group promoting transparency in the executive branch, has now become a full criminal investigation, with Clinton as the likely target.

Hillary and the mystery of the vanishing woman who decided which of her emails were to be erased:.  Heather Samuelson was the Clinton aide who was tasked to go through the former secretary of state's emails and then, later on, was to take a job with the 2016 campaign.  But, according to Politico, Samuelson made the move — from Washington, D.C. to New York, as Clinton's campaign is headquartered in Brooklyn — but never started her campaign job.

Hillary can't run from the messes she — and Obama — made.  Hillary Clinton's speech Thursday [11/19/2015] was billed as her plan to combat the Islamic State.  In truth, her plan was to combat the idea that she is another Barack Obama. [...] As his first secretary of state, she was part of the team that botched the wars in Iraq and Syria and helped birth the Islamic terrorism now rattling the world.  The slaughter in Paris and fresh threats against America make it urgent that she erase her fingerprints from the calamity.  That's impossible, so she settled for putting some daylight between herself and Obama.

Top Hillary Aide Signed, Failed To Comply With State Dept 'Separation Agreement'.  That aide, Huma Abedin, maintained control of emails she sent and received through a personal email account hosted on Clinton's private email server for nearly two-and-a-half years after she left the agency in Feb. 2013.  In signing the form — called the OF-109 — but failing to turn over State Department records, Abedin may have opened herself up to criminal charges.

When the Clinton Scandals Boil Away.  She buried Benghazi.  She deleted the email scandal.  Such are the hopes of Hillary Rodham Clintons team after an NBC News/Wall Street Journal poll suggests that Americans are less inclined to consider either issue critical to their 2016 vote.  So is Clinton out the woods?  No — not if voters still want to trust their president.

The Truth About Hillary.  In office, Clinton's use of an unsecured private email server ought to have been an impeachable offense for the "high crime" of being too inept at her job to keep it.  Clintonemail.com was the high-tech equivalent of sending old-fashioned radio communications unencrypted over public airwaves all across the globe.  In the old days, a King would have summarily executed his foreign minister for such treachery.  These days, the King gives her his tacit blessing to become his successor.

How the FBI Could Derail Hillary Clinton's Presidential Run.  James Comey — not Bernie Sanders — is the biggest challenge to Hillary Clinton's presidential ambitions, a prospect that should keep the former Secretary of State up at night.  The fiercely independent head of the FBI is directing the investigation into Clinton's use of a personal email server and attendant issues raised during the Benghazi inquiry, which could lead to indictments of the former Secretary of State or her various aides.  If the probe determines that Hillary or her aides mishandled classified information or obstructed justice, her campaign will likely collapse.

Here's What Could Happen If DOJ Declines to Indict Hillary.  Judge Andrew Napolitano explained on "Hannity" that in his view, there's no "conceivable" way that Hillary Clinton could have believed that there was no classified information in her private emails.  The judge pointed out that the travel plans of Amb. Chris Stevens in Libya were contained in the emails, along with the names of undercover CIA officers.  "How could she say those weren't classified?" he asked.  Clinton has insisted that she did not send or receive information on her private email server that was classified at that time.  The judge said he sees Clinton's legal position as being "somewhere between grave and worse than grave."

Former Assistant Director Of The FBI: Hillary May Be Guilty Of Conspiracy Too.  Fox News' Catherine Herridge recently broke the news that the FBI's probe of Hillary Clinton's emails is focused on the so-called "gross negligence provision" under 18 U.S. Code § 793, section (f).  That provision makes it a crime for anyone "through gross negligence" to have classified material lost, destroyed, stolen, or "removed from its proper place of custody."  But that might not be Clinton's only problem.  According to former Assistant Director Of The FBI Ron Hosko, Hillary Clinton might also be guilty of violating the next section of the law: the section that deals with conspiracy.

Benghazi Victim's Mom: 'As Far As I'm Concerned, Hillary Is Anti-Mother'.  Patricia Smith, the mother of one of the four victims of the Benghazi attack, said this morning on "America's Newsroom" that she still has not heard anything from Hillary Clinton.  After her son, Foreign Service Officer Sean Smith, was killed in the Sept. 11, 2012 attack, Smith said the then-secretary of state assured her that she would give her a full accounting of what happened.  Since then, Smith said she's never heard from Clinton or her office, and accused the State Department of withholding information about her son's death.

Hillary Campaign Workers 'Run' from Questions About Election Law Violations.  A brand new James O'Keefe video shows Hillary Clinton campaign workers retreating from questions that the campaign could have violated election laws in its voter-registration efforts.  O'Keefe recently captured Clinton campaign worker and Nevada immigration lawyer Christina Gupana appearing to condone and encourage what appear to be Clinton volunteers and staffers to ignore and knowingly violate Nevada's voter registration laws.

Hillary Clinton Staffer In Hiding As Authorities Investigate Her Work On The Campaign.  Where is Christina Gupana?  The Nevada immigration attorney and Hillary Clinton campaign fellow has gone into hiding since she was captured in a James O'Keefe video apparently conspiring to violate election laws.  Gupana told who she thought were Hillary Clinton campaign staffers and volunteers to "Do whatever you can.  Whatever you can get away with, just do it, until you get kicked out, like, totally."  Gupana seemed to know that none of these volunteers were licensed to register voters by a county clerk, as required by law in Nevada.

O'Keefe Strikes Again: Undercover Video Purports to Show Hillary Campaign Violating Election Law.  An undercover video published Thursday [9/10/2015] by James O'Keefe's Project Veritas purports to show Nevada-based Hillary Clinton campaign staffers and volunteers ignoring and knowingly violating Nevada's voter registration laws.  Moreover, the video appears to show that this conduct is being condoned and encouraged by a local attorney who works for the Clinton campaign.

Baby Organ Harvester to Hillary: "You're My Personal Hero".  This week, the State Department released emails from Hillary Clinton's private server and one was from a Planned Parenthood executive praising her for promoting abortion and urging her to speak out against a measure in Kenya to include in its new constitution language asserting that "life begins at conception."  CNS News reports that in 2009 Clinton received an email from Planned Parenthood's vice president of public policy and advocacy, Laurie Rubiner, and she told her she was her "personal hero."  She thanked Clinton on behalf of their organization and asked her to speak against the Kenya initiative in her next trip to the country.

The exhausting Mrs. Clinton.  Hillary Clinton's second race for the presidency is only about a quarter through, but she already seems to be causing general fatigue.  The lurid revelations about the Clinton Foundation proved that it was not so much a charity as a huge laundering operation.  Quid pro quo donations from the global rich and powerful fueled the Clintons' jet-setting networking.  In between political campaigns, the foundation provided sinecures for out-of-work Clinton politicos.  This is hardly proof of Hillary's grass-roots progressivism.  Then came Mrs. Clinton's email fiasco.  No one knows how the current investigation of her alleged misuse of email accounts, servers and classified information will end up.  But most people accept that it was an unnecessary and self-induced scandal, brought on both by her paranoia and habitual expectation of being exempt from the law.

Let's See More of Hillary Now, to See Less of Her Later.  Hillary Clinton shows signs of anger and desperation and pops out of her shell with shrill and extreme rhetoric. [...] A few weeks ago, she lashed out against Republicans again for grilling her on the Obama administration's response to the 2012 terrorist attacks in Benghazi, Libya.  "They'll try to tell you this is about Benghazi, but it's not. ... It's not about Benghazi. ... It's not about emails or servers, either. ... I won't get down in the mud with them.  I won't play politics with national security."  Oh, then why did she pretend that an anti-Islam video triggered the terrorist attack on our consulate in Benghazi? Evidence has shown — as we realized all along — that she knew then it was a planned terrorist attack and not a spontaneous eruption over an obscure video.  She says she won't get down in the mud with Republicans, yet the entire purpose of her little rant was to sling mud.

Hillary laughs off email scandal in Iowa.  Hillary Clinton on Wednesday [8/26/2015] literally laughed off the ongoing email scandal engulfing her campaign at an event accepting the endorsement of Secretary of Agriculture and former Iowa Gov. Tom Vilsack.  Vilsack hailed Clinton's toughness and ability to weather "trumped up charges," eliciting raucous laughter from the former secretary of state.

James O'Keefe: Yes Hillary, I Have Undercover Video of Your Campaign.  Late last week rumors started swirling about an undercover investigation of Hillary Clinton's campaign being conducted by James O'Keefe's Project Veritas, an organization responsible for holding a number of government officials accountable for bad behavior.  The Clinton camp was put on high alert, told to look for suspicious behavior and to be aware they may be under video surveillance.  We now know the rumors are true.  O'Keefe has confirmed Project Veritas journalists have in fact conducted an undercover video investigation into Clinton's campaign and have plenty of footage to share.

Something's Happening Here.  Clinton is now immersed in what could very well be the scandal of the century.  There's no way to wriggle free of the mishandling of classified data.  You can finesse financial laws and ethics rules.  You can't finesse this stuff.  News reports suggest there may be dozens of people who have violated the law and conspired to hide their involvement.  This is Watergate level stuff given her position.

Hillary skips Bill's 69th birthday bash.  Bill Clinton celebrated his 69th birthday in East Hampton Tuesday [8/18/2015].  The former president hit beachy Mexican joint Blue Parrot with 10 guests, including rocker Jon Bon Jovi, and other friends, who were seated at a long table among other diners.  While Hillary was busy campaigning and daughter Chelsea is in Sardinia, Italy, with husband Marc Mezvinsky, spies say "extended family" attended the bash.

How Could Clinton Possibly Be Elected?  According to a poll released on August 14 by Fox News, a solid majority of likely American voters — 58% — believe that Clinton "knowingly lied" about the presence of classified information on her server.  Only 33% of the overall electorate believes that there is some other explanation for what federal investigators have found.  And 54% believe that she has damaged national security as a result.

Imagine, if you will:  The Second Clinton Impeachment.
Clinton Email Scandal: A Long National Nightmare Looms.  The Hillary Clinton email scandal has become the Watergate of our time.  But there's a significant difference.  This time, America has a chance to stop a suspected crook from taking office.

The Countless Crimes of Hillary Clinton: Special Prosecutor Needed Now.  After years of holding herself above the law, telling lie after lie, and months of flat-out obstruction, HIllary Clinton has finally produced to the FBI her server and three thumb drives.  Apparently, the server has been professionally wiped clean of any useable information, and the thumb drives contain only what she selectively culled.  Myriad criminal offenses apply to this conduct.

Dems near Clinton panic mode.  Democrats are worried that the furor surrounding Hillary Clinton's private email server will be prolonged and intensified after her sudden move to hand it over to the FBI.  The Clinton campaign's decision to give up the server and a thumb drive containing backup copies of emails left Democrats scratching their heads as to why the former secretary of State had resisted for months turning over the server.  Coupled with new polls that suggest Clinton is vulnerable, Democrats are nearing full-on panic mode.

Clinton Campaign Denial Strategy Not Working.  Clinton loyalists have been conditioned to think of all of her scandals as political attacks from the "vast right wing conspiracy" against the former first family.  Yet clinging to the presumption of innocence afforded all those under investigation by the authorities isn't the ideal stance for a presidential candidate.  It may be difficult to believe that the Justice Department of a Democratic administration will ever treat her the way they would anyone else in this position and slam her and her aides with indictments.  But at some point the Clinton camp is going to have to realize that denial is not going to be enough to keep her leaky ship afloat.

Citizens United Renews Call for Special Counsel in Clinton Email Case.  This investigation is the first step in determining if Hillary Clinton compromised our national security by running her State Department emails through a private server in her New York home.

Washington Post's O'Keefe: It's "Very Clear" Clintons Play by a Different Set of Rules.  [Hillary] Clinton's favorability ratings are cratering, with the latest NBC/Wall Street Journal poll showing that 48 percent of Americans now view her unfavorably, up from 40 percent in June.  Adding to Clinton's woes is a new poll that shows her once huge lead over Bernie Sanders in New Hampshire has virtually evaporated, casting more doubt among Democrats as to whether or not she can and should be their standard bearer in 2016.

FBI investigation of Hillary's emails is 'criminal probe'.  The FBI investigation into former Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton's unsecured email account is not just a fact-finding venture — it's a criminal probe, sources told The [New York] Post on Wednesday [8/5/2015].  The feds are investigating to what extent Clinton relied on her home server and other private devices to send and store classified documents, according to a federal source with knowledge of the inquiry.  "It's definitely a criminal probe," said the source.  "I'm not sure why they're not calling it a criminal probe.

Report: FBI Investigation of Hillary Email is "Criminal Investigation".  The Clintonian parseltongue continues.  First she said "there was never anything classified on her private email server".  Then she said there was never anything "classified at the time" it was on her email server.  Now she claims there was never anything with "classified written on it", at the time it was on her private email server.  The Clinton's could debate the verbiage on a stop sign.

Why a Criminal Prosecution of Hillary Clinton Might Not Happen.  Will the presumptive Democratic nominee face criminal prosecution? The answer is not a simple one, despite the apparent gravity of Clinton's actions.  Attorney General Loretta Lynch must first agree to open a full-scale investigation, and the DOJ must then find evidence of Clinton's criminal intent in order to prosecute.  National-security lawyers say the decision to charge Clinton would depend largely on whether the offending documents were actually marked "classified."  But given the Justice Department's history of foot-dragging in cases involving high-level government officials mishandling classified documents, Clinton may well avoid a criminal investigation altogether — much less a prosecution.

Former Intel Officials Call for Revocation of Clinton's Security Privileges.  A group of former special operations forces and intelligence community members are calling on the State Department to revoke "any and all security clearances" still held by former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and her confidants in the wake of revelations Clinton used a private email server to transfer classified information.  OPSEC, an advocacy group comprised of former intelligence and security officials, petitioned Secretary of State John Kerry on Tuesday to revoke classified privileges for Clinton, as well as her former chief of staff Cheryl Mills, her former deputy chief of staff Jake Sullivan, and her top adviser Huma Abedin, according to a copy of the letter.

Clinton's Email Scandal Gets Worse In One Hot Afternoon.  This is a candidate who cannot be trusted, cannot be believed — and should not be elected.

Calls mount for Hillary Clinton criminal investigation amid email data breach fears.  With U.S. intelligence officials scrambling to contain damage from potentially hundreds of spy agency secrets in Hillary Rodham Clinton's private emails, questions are mounting over why the Justice Department has not yet opened a criminal investigation against the Democratic presidential front-runner for mishandling a mountain of classified information.

Classified info on Clinton server, thumb drive violation of law, national security lawyer says.  "In most situations like this you'd expect that a warrant would be issued and that the Marshals and the feds — FBI, somebody would go and get that thumb drive and take it somewhere where it would be considered safe by the government," said Edward MacMahon Jr., an attorney who has handled major national security cases including the leak investigation of former CIA officer Jeffrey Sterling.  Under 18 USC 1924, the unlawful removal and storage of classified information is described as when a person "knowingly removes such documents or materials without authority and with the intent to retain such documents or materials at an unauthorized location."  The law sets punishment of a fine or prison term of "not more than one year."

The Hillary Email Scandal Just Saw Its 'Most Significant Legal Development To Date.  A federal judge has ordered Hillary Clinton and two of her top aides at the State Department, Huma Abedin and Cheryl Mills, to attest, under penalty of perjury, that they have turned over all official government records in their possession.  U.S. District Court judge Emmett Sullivan issued the bombshell ruling late Friday [7/31/2015], hours after the State Department released its second batch of Clinton emails.  The ruling was issued in the matter of a Judicial Watch Freedom of Information Act lawsuit against the State Department.

Another Clinton Scandal: Will This Stop Her?  [Scroll down]  A few months later, Hillary announced what was in essence a compromise between UBS and the IRS.  After this intervention, according to the reports, UBS donations to the Clinton Foundation reached roughly $600,000 by the end of 2014, up from less than $60,000 just six years earlier.  The bank also paid Bill $1.5 million.  All he had to do was join Bob McCann, a UBS executive, in a series of economic forums.  Suspicion of a quid pro quo is further validated by media reports that UBS loaned $32 million to entrepreneurship and inner-city programs that the Clinton Foundation was involved in.  The reports are careful to say none of this is evidence of misconduct.  But it's all so consistent with the way the Clintons do business.

Email Scandal: Bad Day For Clinton A Good Day For U.S..  Friday [7/31/2015] had to be an extraordinarily trying day for the Democratic front-runner.  On the same day she releases a letter from her doctor saying she is fit to run for president, the latest tranche of emails showed that she is not fit to hold office.  Even before the 2,000 pages containing 1,300 emails were dumped, the McClatchy newspaper chain was reporting that classified emails stored on the former secretary of state's private server held "information from five U.S. intelligence agencies."  It also included "material related to the fatal 2012 Benghazi attacks."

Planned Parenthood Got Millions After Lobbying Hillary State Dept..  Planned Parenthood lobbied the Department of State many times during Hillary Clinton's tenure there and received tens of millions of dollars from foreign policy agencies over the past few years, according to a new report.  As secretary of state, Clinton attacked the Mexico City Policy, which bans federal funding of abortion overseas.  Her husband revoked the policy during his administration and President Obama lifted the ban upon taking office in 2009.  The United States Agency for International Development (USAID), which is tied to the State Department, steered more than $100 million in funding to Planned Parenthood, its international affiliates, and the pro-abortion Population Council between 2010 and 2012, according to the Government Accountability Office — about 20 percent of the nearly $500 million pro-abortion organizations received from taxpayers during that time frame.

Planned Parenthood Had Hillary's Private Email Address.  Planned Parenthood emailed Hillary Clinton on her private email address.  The revelation comes in the most recently released trove of Clinton's emails.

Cause of Action Sues State for Clinton Records Failure.  A whistle-blowing organization is suing Secretary of State John Kerry and the National Archivist for failure to properly preserve former Secretary Hillary Clinton's electronic trail.  Cause of Action (COA), a non-profit and nonpartisan government accountability organization, filed a lawsuit against the agency, claiming it did not perform its due diligence in ensuring that Clinton followed record keeping protocol.  COA executive director Dan Epstein said the suit was necessary to ensure transparency in future administrations.  "This case is about no government official being above the law and the duty of Secretary Kerry and Archivist [David] Ferriero to fulfill their statutory obligations to hold former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton accountable for misusing taxpayer funded federal property," Epstein said in a release.

On CNN, Giuliani: 'I'd Have' Hillary Clinton 'Under Investigation for About Five Different Crimes'.  Appearing as a guest on Wednesday's [7/29/2015] New Day on CNN, during a discussion of Hillary Clinton's presidential campaign, former New York Mayor Rudy Giuliani asserted that he would "have her under investigation for about five different crimes right now," and that it is "outrageous that the Justice Department is not moving forward with this."  Calling it a "true criminal case againt Hillary Clinton," he further argued that the destruction of the drive which contained 34,000 emails, some of which were government-related, constituted "obstruction of justice" and could be viewed by a court as an "inference of guilt."

Giuliani: Hillary Clinton Should Be Under Investigation For Five Different Crimes.  Former Republican presidential candidate Rudy Giuliani said that if he was still a U.S. Attorney, he'd have former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton under investigation for five different crimes.  "I believe she should be under investigation by the United States Attorney in the Southern District of New York for obstruction of justice, for destroying government property," he said on CNN's New Day "I think its clear that she had a conflict of interest, her husband getting hundreds of millions of dollars, she's making decisions about companies and about corporations that he's getting money from.  I think they filed a joint tax return."

Hillary Clinton Comes One Step Closer to a Criminal Investigation.  Hillary Clinton may face a criminal investigation for her use of a private email server for official State Department business.

Muslim Brotherhood Skeletons Remain in Hillary Clinton's Closet.  No sooner had Hillary Clinton announced the start of her U.S. presidential campaign than several skeletons popped out of her closet.  The Clinton Foundation skeleton, at worst, gave foreign contributors a "pay to play" influence at the U.S. State Department, or, at best, the appearance of such.  If the former, the Clintons have taken Harry Truman's motto, "the buck stops here," to mean millions of them.  Another skeleton is Hillary's unauthorized use of a private email server along with her erasure of those communications while announcing her candidacy.  A third skeleton, Benghazi, is being examined by Chairman Rep. Trey Gowdy (R-SC) of the House Select Committee which is investigating the matter.  These three skeletons demand, and are receiving, close scrutiny.  However, a fourth and much more damning skeleton-Hillary's Muslim Brotherhood connection-still escapes scrutiny.  Interestingly, in connection with the Benghazi investigation, three Hillary aides have been subpoenaed by Gowdy to produce emails.  The one who has yet to do so completely is the one with the closest ties to the Brotherhood — Huma Abedin.

Clinton email answers don't answer key question.  It was lost amid news of President Obama's Iran deal, but this week Hillary Clinton released a 3,500-word explanation of her secret email system.  While it is by far the most extensive statement the Clinton campaign has made on the issue, the explanation does not touch what has become a key question, if not the key question, of the email affair:  Did Clinton withhold information from Congress?

To know Hillary is to hate Hillary.  [Scroll down]  For the past few months, she has also been dogged by a never ending stream of scandals.  Of course, there is the ongoing investigation into her handling of the Benghazi terrorist attack, her decision to use a private computer server and shield thousands of emails from investigators and her foundation's fundraising activities.  The "Clinton Cash" scandal is aptly characterized as the blatant selling of her position as Secretary of State to the highest bidder.  Hillary is not like her roguish husband whose despicable behavior is overlooked because he is considered a likable person.  Hillary possesses none of Bill's winning personality, but all of his corrupt tendencies.

Time to Arrest Hillary.  Hillary Clinton led the charge in the Obama administration to go to war in Libya.  Her objective was to overthrow the regime of Col. Muammar el-Qaddafi.  Not one to be deterred by opponents in the Pentagon and Congress to her reckless interventionist plans, Hillary decided to end-run them.  Her State Department helped facilitate what Andrew P. Napolitano in his scathing article has called "Hillary's secret war."  When the secret war began to backfire, as arms ended up in the hands of anti-American jihadists, Hillary Clinton and other senior members of the Obama administration engaged in lies, obstructions of congressional investigations and scapegoating to cover their tracks.

Time to Arrest Hillary.  [Fox News analyst and former judge Andrew] Napolitano states that Clinton "obtained permission from President Obama and consent from congressional leaders in both houses of Congress and in both parties to arm rebels in Syria and Libya in an effort to overthrow the governments of those countries."  Many of those rebels were terrorist groups who are our sworn enemies.

Despite San Francisco criticism, Clinton once backed sanctuary city policies.  High-profile Democrats now speaking out about San Francisco's "sanctuary" treatment of an illegal immigrant charged with the murder of a young woman weren't always so critical of the policies.  Hillary Clinton and Sen. Dianne Feinstein, D-Calif., both criticized San Francisco for ignoring a federal request to hold Francisco Sanchez — who already had been deported five times — when he went into city custody in March.  He was released in April, and is now in jail for the murder last week of Kate Steinle, 32.

State Department Hid Clinton Aide's Special Job Status, Grassley Charges.  State Department officials "failed to disclose" a special employment status granted to Cheryl Mills who was former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton's chief of staff, according to Sen. Charles Grassley.  Mills was designated a "Special Government Employee," and may have "abused her access" for the benefit of former President Clinton and the Clinton family's foundation, Grassley, the Iowa Republican, charged Tuesday [7/7/2015] in a letter to Secretary of State John Kerry.  Grassley is chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee.

Family Matters: Eccentric Siblings Put Strain on Clinton Fortune.  The Washington Post and the New York Times have published new details this week about the relationship between Bill and Hillary Clinton and their wayward siblings.  Bill's half-brother Roger Clinton, and Hillary's brothers Hugh and Tony Rodham, have all benefited from their ties to the most successful power couple in politics, yet have little to show for it.

Looks like Hillary did not give State Dept. all of her work-related emails.  Earlier this month, we learned that Sidney Blumenthal turned over to Trey Gowdy's committee 61 emails in which he corresponded with Hillary Clinton that the State Department hadn't produced in response to a subpoena by the committee for such documents.  The question was:  did State have the documents but fail to produce them to the committee or did State not have the documents because Hillary, who kept them on a private server, didn't give them to State?  The answer, it appears, is "both."

Non-Profit Media Matters Accidentally Admits It Works For Hillary — That's Illegal.  Non-profit political organizations are specifically prohibited from campaigning or advocating for a political candidate.  This is important because there are a lot of 501(c)(3)'s out there that are liberal or conservative and get close to working with a candidate but manage to stay on the legal side of the fence.  David Brock's Media Matters for America has long been a shill organization for Democrats, and Hillary Clinton.  Everybody knows this, but they've denied it and so far have avoided getting shut down by the IRS.  But in an article this week, Brock inadvertently showed his hand — and it could mean the end of the organization.

Judicial Watch sues for Secret Service records on costs for Bill Clinton's travel to Orgy Island.  One of the most shameful episodes in Bill Clinton's life is his buddying up with Jeffrey Epstein, hedge fund billionaire and proprietor of a private Island, Little Saint James, where underage girls served as sex slaves.  And given his history with Paula Jones, Kathleen Willey, Monica Lewinski, Gennifer Flowers, and many others we have never heard of, that is saying a lot.

Benghazi investigators ponder: Is State Dept. lying, or is Hillary?  The message was clear.  Clinton had turned over everything, and the State Department would make it all public.  Then State sent Clinton's emails that concerned Libya to the House Select Committee on Benghazi. Chairman Trey Gowdy immediately expressed skepticism about the claim that everything had been turned over.  "There are gaps of months and months and months," Gowdy said.  Gowdy's suspicions appear to have been confirmed.

The Clintons, US Intelligence, and the Great Uranium Follies.  Hillary Clinton handing over a sizable portion of US uranium production potential to Russia is not an isolated event, but rather is the logical convergence of decades-old Clinton era dealings with Russia and rogue states, for enrichment of the power elite.  AT contributor Michael Curtis is correct when he says that the Uranium One deal has serious implications for our national security.  In fact, the revelation of Hillary's independent intel network, coupled with Clinton era national security policy changes in the form of counter-proliferation (CP) regimes, have been far more strategically harmful than many Americans realize.

Hillary Speaks of Little Children, Church Members, Movie Audiences But Not Our Military Personnel.  Hillary Clinton spoke about the shooting at Mother Emanuel AME Church in Charleston, South Carolina by posing the following questions:  ["]How many innocent people in our country from little children to church members to movie theater attendees?  How many people do we need to see cut down before we act?["] [...] Hillary speaks of little children, church members and movie theater attendees.  But what about our military personnel?  Weren't the soldiers who died at Fort Hood also victims of gun violence?

Beyond Benghazi: Hillary, Sid and Libya.  Whatever Blumenthal has to say in his closed-door deposition — GOP sources say they want to know whether his voluminous emails to Clinton on Libya, coming at a time when he might have had business interests there, influenced the administration's overall policy — it's clear that America's Libya adventure will haunt the Clinton campaign well into 2016.  Benghazi already has become a right-wing byword for "Clinton scandal," as resonant to the '10s as "Vince Foster" was to the '90s.

The Editor says...
I was wondering when somebody was going to mention Vince Foster.

Hillary Clinton's fifteen biggest scandals.  The Clintons have been no stranger to scandals, some dating back to when Bill Clinton was governor of Arkansas.  But there are many scandals that originated in Hillary Clinton's tenure as secretary of state.

Sale of Michigan company to China may haunt Clinton.  National Republican Party officials are questioning why Hillary Rodham Clinton did not intervene in the controversial 2013 sale of high-tech battery plants in Michigan to a Chinese firm when she was secretary of State and could have done so.  At a campaign stop in New Hampshire last month, Clinton, the leading Democratic candidate for president, expressed concerns about the sale of A123 Systems — built with millions in government aid — along with those of other new energy firms, to Chinese investors, calling them "unfortunate" and a "serious" problem for high-tech industries in the U.S.

Clinton Foundation Meeting in Morocco Last Month Cost Taxpayers $21K.  Bill Clinton, no stranger to controversy, raised eyebrows again with a Clinton Global Initiative gathering last month, as ABC News put it, "at a five-star luxury hotel in Morocco [hosted] by one of the world's most controversial mining companies, criticized for 'serious human rights violations' by the Robert F. Kennedy Center for Justice."  And as is the case with every trip a former president takes (and President Clinton takes a lot of trips), the U.S. taxpayer is on the hook for security expenses.  For the Morocco trip, the hotel costs alone for the Secret Service came to $21,165.

Hillary Clinton: the gold standard of flawed candidates?  [Scroll down]  She had unsubstantiated intelligence sent to her private email system; from an address her lawyers said did not exist when she was at State.  That was a lie.  She claims to be the most transparent (chuckle) person in public life, yet we find little nuggets every day about her non-profit failing to disclose donations, botching tax forms, and allegedly being the nexus for foreign governments to cash in on their favors from their donations to the Foundation.  She had a private email system, which she used to conduct all her business while at the State Department, even though it was pretty much against government regulation to do so — and served as judge and jury for emails on that server that were work-related and personal.  Oh, and she deleted the personal emails and wiped the server clean.

Five Scandals for Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders that Would Sink any Republican.  Welcome to the 2016 presidential race, where Republicans are targeted for scandal when the media deliberately misquote them, but Democrats get away with behavior that would make Caligula blush. [...] Democrats and media members continue to ignore the following raft of stories that would sink any Republican candidate for dogcatcher, let alone president of the United States: [...]

Will Steady Drip of Foundation Stories Soak Clinton?  In the mid-1990s, there was a popular phrase in Washington, D.C., regarding the seemingly endless parade of scandals, controversies, and ethical issues emanating from the Clinton White House:  "Drip, drip, drip."  Well, it seems like the 1990s all over again.  The initial shock about the Clinton Foundation's complex web of entanglements, donations from foreign countries, and various conflicts of interest has worn off.  Yet, each day seems to bring a new revelation.

The Hillary Clinton Paradox.  On the matter of Hillary Clinton's candidacy I find myself holding opposite and irreconcilable views:  "That can't possibly work," and "She's inevitable."  Her candidacy can't work because of the deep, daily cascade of scandals that would disqualify anyone else.  State Department emails on private servers, stonewalling Congress; the family foundation that appears to function in part as a high-class slush fund and that, this week we learned, paid a significant salary to that beacon of philanthropic spirit Sidney Blumenthal, [...]

Frauds and Sleazeballs.  So who do the Democrats have for 2016?  They'll tell you it's going to be Hillary Clinton, but with each passing week that looks less like a statement of fact and more like a wish... and a weak wish at that given the constant drip-drip-drip of scandal out of her foundation and incompetent lies out of her record as Secretary of State.

Who's Afraid of the Big Bad Hillary?  The Clintons have been implicated in scandal after scandal after scandal, none of which appears to be taken seriously enough by voters at large.  Why?  Some would point to the change in America's culture.  The character and behavior of public officials no longer seem as important to the electorate as other factors.  Now the big question for some Americans is whether a candidate for president feels our pain or drinks our brew.  In any event, the consensus is that all politicians are dishonest and contentious anyway, so why the big fuss?

In just five weeks, Hillary has had a lifetime quota of scandals.  Everybody knows that there are no secrets in the age of Snowden and that transparency is now a requirement for the political class.  But Clinton conducts public business on a private server, destroys 30,000 e-mails of her choosing and provides the rest in boxes of unsearchable paper records.  Everyone knows that social media and the 24-hour news cycle create an insatiable demand for content, which presidential campaigns must strive to fill.  Clinton grants media access in frothy little dollops even as large controversies unfold.  This is creating a crisis of relevance for members of the traveling press, who are either compromised by complicity or moved to rebellion.

Watergate Redux? Will Sid 'Vicious' Upend Hillary?  Another shoe, a big one this time, dropped in the endless Benghazi-missing-emails-erased-servers-what-difference-does-it-make controversy that the Clintonistas are trying so hard to push under the rug before it upends Dame Hillary's presidential campaign.  And the scoop comes, once again, from the New York Times, of all places, not some rascally website run by rightwing lunatics like this one.

Hillary's hell.  She refuses to take questions.  She hedges on the most central issue of our time, Iran.  She won't tell us her view on the XL Pipeline.  And liberals know all too well how long she took to change her view (or admit she changed her view) on gay marriage.  It's ironic that Clinton regards herself as a pioneer.  She makes even the most cautious politicians seem reckless in comparison.  One has always sensed with Clinton that, far from leading, she is following, and doing so clumsily.  But the presidency is no place for cowards.

Hillary Clinton's consigliere covers up for her scandals.  If Congress really wants to get to the bottom of Hillary Clinton's missing Benghazi and pay-to-play emails, it should call her consigliere Cheryl D. Mills to testify — under oath, and under the klieg lights.  A hearing featuring Clinton will be a wasted show trial with a lot of political grandstanding.  But Mills, who served as the former secretary of state's chief of staff and counselor, knows where the bodies are buried.  After all, Hillary tasked her with "identifying and preserving all emails that could potentially be federal records."  And, presumably, deleting.  Mills has a long track record of hiding Clinton documents.

Signs of panic in the Clinton War Room.  The pattern is familiar.  Dismiss the charges as lacking factual basis ("there is no evidence of..." as opposed to actually denying the truth of the charge); viciously attack the person making the charge in defamatory language ("what happens when you drag a hundred-dollar-bill through a trailer park"); use lawyerly language to convey a lie in terms that can be defended in ways that offend common sense but hope to avoid perjury charges sticking ("I did not have sexual relations with that woman..."); and the clincher:  wait for the media to tire of the story and the low-information voters to forget about it.

The Clinton War Room Jumps the Shark.  The drip, drip, drip of scandal stories from a variety of news outlets inspired by Peter Schweitzer's muckraking book has kept the allegations in the news rather than it fading away.  As a result, the Clinton "War Room" that has been assembled to trash Schweitzer and dismiss the book is starting to show the initial signs of panic.

John Bolton: Hillary should be 'Disqualified' from Presidential Run.  At the South Carolina Freedom Summit on Saturday, former U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations John Bolton said that Hillary Clinton was not fit to be president of the United States because she did not take necessary steps to protect Americans in Libya.  On the day that Ambassador Christopher Stevens, along with three other brave Americans, was killed in Benghazi, Bolton said that "not only was nothing done, the response of the administration was to go home.  The president left the Oval office in the situation room to go to the residence.  Hillary Clinton left the State Department to go home."

More about Benghazi.

Frankenhillary.  As Clinton scandals continue to mount and her credibility plummets, gleeful Republicans are quietly discussing what once seemed impossible:  Hillary Clinton might not survive primary season, let alone make it all the way to Pennsylvania Avenue.  That may well turn out to be the case.  But it's not because of the allegations about "Clinton cash" or deleted emails.  Those are major political scandals, to be sure, but of a kind that a shameless Bill Clinton skated through easily during his own administration.

Of course the media should report on 'Clinton Cash'.  Clinton herself addressed the issue during a roundtable event in New Hampshire on Monday afternoon [4/20/2015].  "[I'll be] subjected to all kinds of distractions and attacks, and I'm ready for that," Clinton said.  "I know that that comes, unfortunately, with the territory, it is I think worth noting that Republicans seem to be talking only about me."

The Editor says...
If you're the party's only candidate, the opposition will talk about you, exclusively.  That's just common sense.  Liberals routinely depend on your lack of common sense.

Don't count on Hillary Clinton self-destructing.  As cringe-worthy as her retail political skills and empty as her policy portfolio may be, Republicans risk taking Hillary Clinton too lightly.  The e-mail scandals and even the foreign-money scandals don't seem to have lessened her grip on the Democratic Party.

A breakdown of every scandal swirling around Hillary.  [Scroll down]  Clinton will likely position herself as the champion of the middle class.  Yet in 2014, it was revealed that Clinton, who charges a minimum of $300,000 per speech, also had an extensive list of demands.  Most anyone who hires Hillary to speak must also provide a private jet — a $39 million Gulfstream G450 or better — and put her up in presidential suites.  Her standard agreement requires her presence for only 90 minutes, and 50 photos with 100 attendees — no more.  Hillary has defended her enormous speaking fees by saying she and Bill were "not only dead broke, but in debt" when they left the White House.  In 1999, Bill and Hillary bought their house in Chappaqua for $1.7 million, and in 2000 purchased a seven-bedroom in Washington, DC, for $2.85 million.

Hillary Commits A Crime & They Defend Her.  MSNBC's Ed Schultz who never saw a Democratic he did not like or a Republican who should not be executed, amazingly admitted in trying to defend Hillary that she is 67 years old and too old to know what she is doing. [...] You cannot get around the fact that what she did was criminal for when all those emails were subpoenaed by Congress, she failed to produce them or inform Congress she had a secret personal email.  That is outright obstruction of justice and anyone else would go to prison for 5 years.  Then when they are discovered, she erases the files.

Hillary Clinton's unpardonable scandal trail.  It was bad enough that while secretary of state — under President Obama's watch — Clinton violated the rules, and possibly the Federal Records Act, by operating her own private email server system in her home rather than using the government email system.  Now we learn that not only has Clinton deleted more than 30,000 emails, but her non-governmental server has since been wiped clean.  This is despite the ongoing congressional investigation into the attack on the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi, subpoenas and multiple Freedom of Information Act requests from a variety of parties.

Servergate Doesn't Matter: Hillary Was Never Going to Be President Anyway.  Mere mortals who defy the letter and meaning of laws requiring transparency for high government officials have their careers ended, pay fines, and face jail terms.  But even if White House enforcer Valerie Jarrett leaked the story, as the New York Post reported, and regardless of what millions of Americans conclude from this lawless behavior, it won't affect the outcome of her campaign for the presidency.

DNC chair: Clinton emails a non-issue in 2016.  Democratic National Committee Chairwoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz defended Hillary Clinton in the ongoing email controversy and emphasized that it will not be an issue for Clinton if she runs in 2016.  "Whether Hillary Clinton or anyone else uses a private email or a government email will not have anything to do with voters' decision on who to cast their ballot for, for president of the United States," she said Monday [3/23/2015] on CNN's "Newsroom."  "She's made it clear that the reason that she used a private email account was to for purely for convenience."

Hillary Clinton to face tough questions on Benghazi, email scandal with 2016 bid official.  The days of answering softball questions at paid speaking engagements have ended for former Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton, who will face a slew of tough questions that she has sidestepped for months now that she has formally announced her bid for the Democratic presidential nomination.  She will have to wrestle with a broad range of topics — from foreign policy issues, such as how she would handle the Islamic State terrorist army that grew up on her watch as secretary of state, to domestic priorities pushed by her Democratic Party's liberal base, including whether she is willing to crack down on big Wall Street banks that have been major donors to her campaigns.  The former first lady, senator and top diplomat also must field questions on matters of ethics, including being pressed to more fully address an email secrecy scandal and a potential conflict of interest with the Clinton Foundation accepting foreign donations while she served as secretary of state.

The Dirty Business of the Billary Machine, Again.  A new Bloomberg poll finds approval of Hillary at 48 percent in the wake of her e-mail scandal.  The poll finds 53 percent of Americans believe "she purposely withheld or deleted some relevant e-mails from a private account and home server she used while in office."  Just 29 percent of respondents think she is being truthful.

Clinton's Cover Up Team.  [Scroll down]  Ray Maxwell, a former assistant secretary of state for North Africa, has told reporters that Mills was one of several Clinton aides who on a Sunday afternoon "separated" out Benghazi-related documents that might put Clinton or her team in a "bad light."  These documents were kept out of the pile that the State Department turned over to the Accountability Review Board that was investigating Benghazi.  When Maxwell stumbled upon the operation, which was taking place in a "basement operations-type center at State Department headquarters in Washington," he questioned whether it was above-board.  "Isn't that unethical?" he asking the office director in charge of the weeding-out process.  "Ray, those are our orders," she answered.  A few minutes later, Mills entered the room and challenged Maxwell over his presence, asking him, "Who are you?"

The NSA spied on everyone — other than Hillary Clinton.  From the 'Believe it or Not Department' of the cunning Obama administration:  America's National Security Agency (NSA) retrieves and stockpiles millions of incoming and outgoing emails of government agencies and from the public at large — but not any coming in or going out from Hillary Clinton's private home email accounts! [...] During the Benghazi scandal, for which the Obama administration has yet to come clean, Clinton was the only one in the whole of America with guaranteed privacy from NSA.

Can Hillary's hopes survive Benghazi?  Former successful cattle-futures investor, first lady, senator, unsuccessful presidential candidate, secretary of State and presumable repeat presidential candidate Hillary Clinton has reportedly sent word to the House Select Committee investigating Benghazi that she is eager to testify.  That may be another statement she comes to regret, along with her now infamous "What difference at this point does it make" outburst before a congressional committee.  Clinton is following standard political protocol for damage control:  To appear up front and get the bad news, all of it, over with as quickly as possible.  Better 2015 than 2016.

RNC chief: Bill Clinton's personal life 'fair game'.  Republican National Committee Chairman Reince Priebus says Bill Clinton's personal life would be "fair game" if Hillary Clinton makes her widely predicted run for the presidency.  "Bill Clinton's activities are fair game for Hillary Clinton to answer, absolutely," Priebus said in an interview with BuzzFeed.  "And if there are things that Bill Clinton has done that we don't know about, politically or through business enterprise, that are questionable and/or illegal, then we ought to look into it and ask Hillary about it too, because the presumption is that she's gonna benefit from the successes of Bill Clinton, so I think it's fair game."

Protesters Gather at Clinton Foundation to Complain of 'Missing Money' from Haiti Recovery.  Protesters gathered outside the Clinton Foundation in New York City to complain about "missing money" from the Haiti recovery effort from the 2010 earthquake: [Video clip] "New Yorkers with roots in Haiti say the picture [of the Haiti recovery] isn't so rosy," said the NY1 anchor.  The protesters claimed that the $10 billion meant to help rebuild Haiti did little to help the country after the devastating quake.  And that much of the money went to non-Haitian companies.

Former Haiti official: We have no idea where all that recovery money went.  Nearly five years after a 7.0 magnitude quake killed hundreds of thousands of its citizens, Haiti's recovery efforts remain muddled and confused, with the whereabouts of the billions of dollars pledged by the international community an apparent mystery to the country's leaders.  "We don't know where the money has gone," Raymond Joseph, former ambassador of Haiti to the U.S., said Friday [1/9/2015] in an interview on Bloomberg's "Market Makers."

Hillary Clinton's jaded sense of justice.  The Benghazi massacre most certainly deserves to be a subject Hillary Rodham Clinton should be held accountable for and never allowed to forget.  Yet there is another, even more recklessly dangerous thing that will affect Mrs. Clinton's designs on the White House:  her attitude in general toward America's enemies.

Typhoid Barry.  Barack Obama, electorally immune from defeat, has become an asymptomatic carrier of the defeat virus for Democrats.  With two more years of his term ahead, the party faces some very decisions.  Do they continue to shun him as they did during the campaign? [...] Then there is the tricky matter of the 2016 presidential race.  Does Hillary Clinton turn on him?  If she does, who knows what might leak out about her behavior the night of Benghazi?

Hillary Clinton Quietly Scrubs 'Remarks' From Website.  Hillary Clinton is widely considered, should she enter the 2016 presidential race, the Democratic front runner.  But the former secretary of state is shrinking rather than building an already limited website presence.  Sometime within the last two months, Hillaryclintonoffice.com quietly removed the only substantive content featured on her website, a set a remarks from three events from early 2013.  The home page of the site that included a "remarks" button in addition to the "contact" button vanished sometime between July 23 and August 27 as these images show: [...]

Rand Paul: Benghazi "precludes" Hillary Clinton's 2016 bid.  Marking another milestone on his warpath against Hillary Clinton's status as the early 2016 Democratic presidential front-runner, Sen. Rand Paul, R-Ky., took advantage of a friendly audience Friday to knock the biggest blemish on her record as secretary of state:  the Sept. 11, 2012, terrorist strike at a U.S. compound in Benghazi, Libya, that killed four Americans.

Could You Lie to a Bereaved Father?  The Ben Rhodes memo revealing the duplicity of this administration on the subject of Benghazi reminds us about the character of those involved.  That President Barack Obama could lie so evenly and so passionately (remember the second presidential debate?) is not perhaps surprising at this stage.  But let's not forget what it took for Hillary Clinton to lie to the grieving father of an American hero.

Hillary Clinton's Legacy Issue.  [T]he legacy of Hillary Clinton is turning out to be one of incompetence, bungled efforts, chicanery and outright scandal.  Her most famous words have become, "What difference at this point does it make?" referring to how the four brave Americans died in Benghazi in September of 2012.  And a number of other scandals have followed her, both from before and during her tenure as Secretary of State.  The latest is about $6 billion in contract dollars that the State Department lost track of over the last six years."

Hillary Clinton Cancels Appearance Where Benghazi Victim's Mom, Protestors Await.  Hillary Clinton was the planned keynote speaker at the 17th Annual Western Healthcare Leadership Academy in San Diego on April 11 — but she's cancelled her visit in the midst of planned protests from San Diego locals and military families.  Protestors organized by "The Difference Matters" do not want the former U.S. Secretary of State to come because of Clinton's role in the Benghazi scandal.

Good News, San Diego: Hillary Won't Be Showing Due To Your Planned Benghazi Protest.  Hillary Clinton cancelled her planned appearance as the headline speaker at next week's Western Healthcare Leadership Academy in San Diego due to planned protests over her  failed leadership  involvement in the Benghazi attacks. She will now be doing the speech via teleconference.

Activists plan protest for Hillary Clinton visit.  Hillary Clinton cancelled her upcoming visit to San Diego in the midst of a planned protest.  Clinton will be the keynote speaker for the 17th Annual Western Healthcare Leadership Academy on April 11.  She was originally going to deliver the speech in person, but will now be seen by satellite.

Hmm: Hillary Camp Claims Zero Emails Exist Between Top Spokesman and Reporters.  More censorship, less responsiveness, longer FOIA wait times — and it's gotten worse.  This president is a fraud.  But that's old news.  Obama is unpopular, he's lost independents, and he's on the fast track to lame duck status.  But she who would be queen is another story.  Charles Krauthammer has long discussed the administration's successful and ongoing stonewall on the Benghazi massacre, but that matter doesn't appear to be the only front on which Clinton's protectors are fogging over details.

Hillary's Private NSA.  Hillary Clinton has her own private NSA.  American Bridge PAC spent last week spying on the private conversations of attendees at the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC).  The group also plans to spy on the private lives of GOP delegates to the 2016 Republican National Convention wherever the convention is located, but Politico reports ABPAC has issued the following threat if the GOP selects Las Vegas as its host city.

Hillary Clinton's baggage is piling up.  [Scroll down]  And there will be the inevitable questions from Republicans about her handling of Benghazi.  Of course, as former secretary of state, she will also have to defend Obama's policies on Syria, drones, the NSA spying program and Iran, in all of which she had direct involvement.  Clinton will most certainly want to run away from some of Obama's missteps and prove she would have done things differently, which will make things difficult for the sitting President and the Democratic narrative.

Democrats Put Hillary Clinton at Risk by Dismissing Benghazi Criticism.  Democrats are in denial if they think Benghazi won't be an issue in the 2016 presidential race, should Clinton run.  A new poll from Pew Research Center and USA Today shows the danger.  When respondents were asked to name in their own words the biggest negative for Clinton from her long career in public service, the most common response was Benghazi.  Sure, it's only 15 percent who gave that answer, but that's still a lot.

Grandma Obamacare.  Hillary Clinton is the matriarch of the disaster that Americans now scorn as Obamacare.  And helpfully for opponents, she was kind enough to detail her role in this unending rolling disaster.  As it were, in chapter if not verse.  In fact, Mrs. Clinton's 2003 memoir Living History, an autobiography that takes her from childhood to the U.S. Senate, can be viewed as something unique in the annals of candidate biographies.  Hillary Clinton's book is a literary landmine.  A self-detailed look at just where all those false promises — about keeping your doctor and your health insurance if you like it — originated.

Hillary Clinton's approval ratings underwater, Benghazi blamed.  The nation's view of former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, colored by the horrific Benghazi assassination of the U.S. ambassador to Libya on her watch, has suddenly turned upside down, with more now holding an unfavorable opinion of the likely 2016 presidential candidate.

Hillary Clinton is worshipped on the awards circuit — but hides from journalists asking about Benghazi or Syria.  No matter how many awards she garners at glitzy ceremonies, idolised by her admirers, the fact remains that Hillary Clinton was one of the least successful US Secretaries of State in modern times, with a track record of failure and poor judgment.  It is little wonder that she has been keeping the press out of her recent speaking engagements — for it is in her own interest to have as little public scrutiny as possible of her less than stellar record as America's top diplomat.  After all, there is nothing like a question on Benghazi or Syria to spoil the coronation party.

Can Hillary Clinton Survive Benghazi?  [B]y any normal standard Benghazi would be considered a career-ending debacle.  Four men, including one of her own ambassadors, were murdered on Hillary's watch, after they had pleaded with her State Department for better security.  The cable denying the ambassador's request for better protection went out over Hillary's signature.  That's just a formality! The Democrats say.  She knew nothing about it!

Benghazi Victim's Mother Says Hillary Lied: 'You Don't Want This Person to be President'.  The reinstatement of four State Department employees who were put on administrative leave following last year's Benghazi attack only further has only reinforced Pat Smith's believe that Hillary Clinton should never be president.  Smith's son, Sean, was one of four Americans who died in the 9/11 attack on the American diplomatic facility in Benghazi.

Stopping the Hillary Juggernaut.  Clearly, stopping Hillary at the polls should be the first priority for conservatives.  But the only way to stop her is by employing the same ruthless tactics Democrats used against Romney in 2012.  Identify her greatest weakness, isolate it, and pound on it from now until November 2016.  In Hillary's case, the weakness is Benghazi.  Conservatives should remind voters that Hillary Clinton was in charge when four Americans were murdered in Benghazi on September 11, 2012.

Did someone mention Benghazi?

Only Benghazi Can Save Us from Hillary.  As Daniel Henninger pointed out the other day, there's plenty of damage our increasingly authoritarian president can yet do in his remaining time in office.  But because of the extra-constitutional power grab Henninger describes, it is all the more imperative that Hillary Clinton not step into Obama's shoes for eight years, cementing policies and programs never voted on by the Congress or approved by the public.  The nature of our republic would be altered forever.

Hillary Clinton Has the Most to Lose From Obama's Scandals.  Conventional wisdom has long held that Hillary Rodham Clinton, if she runs for president, would be the clear frontrunner for the Democratic nomination in 2016.  But after a trifecta of scandals buffeting President Obama — fresh questions about the White House's veracity on Benghazi, the IRS's harassment of conservative non-profits and the Justice Department seizure of AP telephone records — Clinton's close connections with Obama could become politically problematic.

Could Biden benefit from scrutiny of Hillary Clinton's handling of Benghazi?  If former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton hoped she could segue quietly into private life as she pondered a presidential bid in 2016, that fantasy has been abruptly harpooned in the resurrection of the political squabble over the terrorist attack on the American consulate in Benghazi.

Benghazi 2012, Hillary 2016.  Hillary's many controversies are mostly ancient history, and mostly the fault of her husband, and are unlikely to derail a general election bid.  Rather, Hillary's weakness is her time as Secretary of State, an abysmal performance which has left us weaker internationally than ever before.  And foremost among her failures in her own right was Benghazi and the cover up to help Obama's campaign.



Years and years of old baggage:


How a New York Senator Can Rag on the Clintons without Risk of Death.  [Scroll down]  So the national Democrats had excellent reason to resent Bill Clinton in 1999 and every motive to seek revenge.  And the Republicans gave them the golden trigger by which to get that revenge:  impeachment and conviction.  All that would have been needed was for at least seventeen of the forty-five Democrat senators to vote to convict Clinton of one of the impeachment charges that had been voted on by the House.  That's about 40%.  Instead, all forty-five Democrat senators stood, phalanx-like, behind Clinton.  Why did they do this? [...] Only one reason comes to mind:  blackmail files.  The Clintons did have those 900 FBI raw files.  They also had their own minions of paid hacks.  Does anyone think that only Republicans' dossiers were contained in those files?  The Clintons must have had dirt on everybody, of both parties.  That's an obvious reason for the iron hold Clinton was able to wield over them.  And Kirsten Gillibrand?  Why does she act as if she's free of Clinton blackmail worries?  Simple.  She didn't enter the House of Representatives until 2007.  The Clintons never assembled blackmail files on her.

The Clinton Wrecking Machine.  [M]any liberals are now engaged in self-flaggelation about whether Clinton should have resigned from office in 1998 when the Lewinsky scandal blew up.  To be sure, much of this is political posturing, since Democrats want to use the sex harassment issue to defeat a Republican senate candidate next month.  But the situational ethics of liberals is not exactly a new observation.  A better question is whether Democrats would have been better off if they hadn't nominated Clinton in the first place in 1992.

Dems' 'reckoning' with Bill's sexual offenses is the final nail in the Clintons' coffin.  [T]he recent wave of liberals "reckoning" with Bill Clinton's sexual offenses should be put into proper context.  It is not the beginning of the end for the Clintons atop the Democratic Party.  It's just the end.  Fact is, Bill and Hillary have become irrelevant to Democrats' policy approach and ideological vision.  They're finally expendable.  So the mea culpas from Bill's defenders proliferating through lefty media, from the New York Times to Politico to Vox, are anything but brave.  They're convenient.  The party had been moving well to the left of the Clintons and Bill's presidency for years.  Indeed, Hillary repeatedly ran into trouble on the campaign trail because of Bill's presidential record, some of which she vocally supported at the time.

No Democrats, you don't get your virginity back.  Now that Bill Clinton and his trashy wife are politically impotent, Democrats want a do over on Paula Jones — you know the state employee Governor Bill Clinton tried to force to fellate him.  She sued.  His lawyers deposed him.  He perjured himself (and tried to suborn perjury from others) about his consensual affair with That Woman, Miss Lewinsky.  Perjury and suborning perjury can be felonies, and certainly are impeachable offenses.  Democrats played it as everyone lies about sex, and he beat the rap.

Liberals' Sudden Concern About Bill Clinton's Behavior Is Cynical And Self-Serving.  In the past few days a number of notable liberals have decided to take allegations of sexual assault against former president Bill Clinton seriously.  Let's just say that discarding the Clintons when they're no longer politically useful to retroactively grab the higher moral ground isn't exactly an act of heroism.  But if we're going to re-litigate history, let's get it right.

Liberals finally hold Bill Clinton accountable for sexual misconduct.  Whenever a Republican — in this case, Alabama Senate hopeful Roy Moore — is accused of sexual harassment, his backers are sure to counter the Democratic onslaught with three little words:  Remember Bill Clinton?  Democrats have been foiled time and again from claiming the moral high ground on sexual misconduct thanks in large part to their decision in the 1990s to ignore, excuse and rebut the well-documented sexual transgressions of the president.  After 25 years, however, some liberals finally are asking whether it's time to deal with their Bubba problem.  "It's only taken 20 years, but the tide seems to finally be turning against Clinton," the conservative news website Resurgent said Wednesday [11/15/2017].

I Believe Juanita.  Of the Clinton accusers, the one who haunts me is Broaddrick.  The story she tells about Clinton recalls those we've heard about Weinstein.  She claimed they had plans to meet in a hotel coffee shop, but at the last minute he asked to come up to her hotel room instead, where he raped her.  Five witnesses said she confided in them about the assault right after it happened.  It's true that she denied the rape in an affidavit to Paula Jones's lawyers, before changing her story when talking to federal investigators.  But her explanation, that she didn't want to go public but couldn't lie to the F.B.I., makes sense.  Put simply, I believe her.

20 Years Late:  Vox Columnist Admits Bill Clinton Should Have Resigned Over Sex Scandals.  Bill Clinton has become the Barry Bonds of politics: a once-celebrated superhero, now disgraced.  This week, a New York Times columnist said she believed Juanita Broaddrick, who first accused Clinton of rape some 25 years ago; The Atlantic also ran a better think piece talking about Clinton's status as a suspected predator.  Now, it's the execrable Matt Yglesias at Vox.com, in a 2000-word essay about just why Clinton should have resigned from office in 1998.  Yglesias admits that at the time, he wanted Clinton to stay:  he was "glad to see Clinton prevail and regarded the whole sordid matter as primarily the fault of congressional Republicans' excessive scandal-mongering."

Juanita Broaddrick Didn't Hold Back.  Juanita Broaddrick slammed comedian Chelsea Handler over a tweet the comedian made imagining what it must be like for an alleged rapist to be elected to a seat of power.  Handler's tweet referenced the allegations against Alabama Republican Senate candidate Roy Moore and asked what message young girls might receive if a man can molest a young girl and then get elected to the U.S. Senate.  She told her followers to imagine that scenario.  Broaddrick responded with "I can imagine."

Bill Clinton's looming reckoning as a sexual predator.  So far, there has not been much holding of Bill Clinton to account by progressives, despite the change in zeitgeist for sexual predation by the powerful.  Never mind that it's fashionable on the left today to hold the founders of our country to present-day standards.  But the inevitable is happening.  At first, a few progressives start mentally applying the post-Weinstein ethic to Bill Clinton.  In the process, they eventually have to reflect on their own past and regret their support for him throughout Kenneth Starr's revelations, impeachment, and beyond.  That will take a long time.  But if they don't publicly reflect, I am sure their friends on the feminist left and the entire right will be happy to dig up whatever the politicians and pundits said at the time about private matters being off limits.  It's only sex!  Worst of all:  Just as with Harvey Weinstein, everybody knew.  That's why Hillary and Betsy Wright put together the "bimbo eruptions" team.

MSNBC's Chris Hayes:  Democrats Need A 'Real Reckoning' With Bill Clinton Allegations.  MSNBC host Chris Hayes tweeted Friday [11/10/2017] that Democrats need to have a "real reckoning" with sexual misconduct allegations against Bill Clinton.

Gingrich: Hillary Clinton's been getting away with unethical, illegal behavior for 40 years.  [Scroll down]  Hillary Clinton's first major act of corruption dates back almost 40 years, when she miraculously turned $1,000 into nearly $100,000 in 10 months during her first attempt at trading commodities — mainly cattle futures.  A month before Bill Clinton was elected governor of Arkansas in November 1978, Hillary Clinton decided to try her hand at commodities trading, which is an incredibly volatile market.  As a total novice, on October 11, 1978, she opened an account with $1,000, made a short sale of 10 live-cattle contracts, then bought them back the next day — pocketing an extra $5,300.  Throughout her stint as an untrained commodities trading savant, a slew of regulatory rules were apparently ignored (or violated) on her behalf.  She made a "mockery of the profession" and cashed in after earning a net profit of nearly 10,000 percent in less than a year.  This level of success is nearly unheard of, even for expert commodities traders.

When Clinton Donors Prosecute And Judge Trump Associates.  In May, U.S. District Court Judge Amy Berman Jackson dismissed a lawsuit by the families of the victims of Benghazi against Hillary Clinton.  Judge Jackson decided that the families couldn't sue Hillary either for wrongful death or for defamation.  That isn't too surprising as Jackson is a former Clinton donor who had been appointed by Obama.  And a Clinton donor should never have been ruling on a Clinton case.  But now Judge Jackson will be presiding over the Paul Manafort case.  Presiding over Manafort's indictment is Judge Deborah A. Robinson.  Judge Robinson's most prominent previous case was the Berger trial.  Sandy Berger, Bill Clinton's former National Security Adviser, stole classified documents about the terror failures of the Clinton administration, hid documents under a construction trailer, lied about taking them and destroyed some of them.

Corruption, Globalized.  [Scroll down]  The rebound accusations which have emerged over the past week that Mrs. Clinton's campaign hired a British intelligence officer and Fusion GPS (a Washington-based intelligence firm with ties to Russian interests) to create a foreign-sourced dossier on Trump are far more blatant, and thus far more serious than Trump Tower chit-chat.  The Clintons have been associated with foreign pay-for-play activities since the 1990s, and the Fusion GPS affair is, in many ways, simply an extension of that association.

Hillary Clinton:  Faust and Mephistopheles Rolled into One.  From early days as the first lady of Arkansas, she felt entitled to more money and prestige than her husband earned as governor.  Together with her husband, she got them both involved in the Whitewater and Madison Guaranty real estate and bank scandals.  Once in the White House, her first depraved undertaking was to fire the entire White House travel office staff in order to turn the business over to a cousin of Bill Clinton's and some Arkansas friends.  Then there were the "bimbo eruptions."  She was in charge of silencing Bill's conquests who might speak the truth about her husband's wanton sexual adventures.  A full list of Clinton corruptions can be found [elsew]here.  It is a long list.

There's an Awakening Against Sexual Assault, So Why Is No One Talking About Bill Clinton?  Indeed, it is remarkable we're in the midst of a Great Sexual Assault Awakening, yet the media is remarkably unwilling to discuss the several credible accusations made against Bill Clinton.  He has been accused of rape by Juanita Broaddrick.  Paula Jones's story about being ushered into a hotel room where Bill Clinton propositioned her and exposed himself is remarkably similar to Harvey Weinstein's apparent modus operandi.  There's the alleged assault of Kathleen Willey in the Oval Office, [...]

Hillary Clinton falsely claims Donald Trump is an 'admitted sex assaulter' — but claims allegations against Bill are "clearly in the past".  Hillary Clinton today [10/13/2017] falsely called Donald Trump an "admitted sex assaulter" and compared him to disgraced alleged sex abuser Harvey Weinstein. [...] In fact Trump has not admitted he committed sexual assault and said that he was indulging in "locker room talk". [...] "There has to be a recognition that we must stand against this kind of action that is so sexist and misogynistic."  And asked about allegations of sexual misconduct levelled at her husband and former president, Bill Clinton, she said:  "That has all been litigated."  "That was subject of a huge investigation in the late 90s and there were conclusions drawn.  That was clearly in the past. [...]"

CNN Weinstein Panel Explodes When Carpenter Invokes Clinton Sex Scandals, Cover-Ups.  Showing off the liberal media's willful blindness concerning the Clintons, Tuesday's [10/10/2017] CNN Newsroom with Brooke Baldwin featured CNN political commentator and former Ted Cruz staffer Amanda Carpenter being shouted down in a Harvey Weinstein segment for invoking the sexual misdeeds by Bill Clinton and enabling by Hillary Clinton.  Baldwin turned to Carpenter for the political side of the horrifying Weinstein story, wondering why it took five days for Hillary Clinton to offer a statement seeing as how her campaign received truckloads of money from Weinstein.

Hillary Clinton breaks silence on Harvey Weinstein: 'I was shocked and appalled'.  Hillary Clinton on Tuesday [10/10/2017] broke her silence on the sexual misconduct allegations against Hollywood producer and Democratic donor Harvey Weinstein, saying such behavior "cannot be tolerated."  "I was shocked and appalled by the revelations about Harvey Weinstein," the 2016 Democratic presidential nominee said in a statement, released on Twitter by spokesman Nick Merrill.  "The behavior described by women coming forward cannot be tolerated.  Their courage and the support of others is critical in helping to stop this kind of behavior."

The Editor says...
Right.  Unless the perpetrator's name is Bill Clinton.

Why Do Bill and Hillary Clinton Still Get a Pass?  The late Barbara Olson, in "Hell To Pay," describes Hillary Clinton as the ringleader behind the "nuts or sluts" strategy employed to malign the various women who alleged having had an affair with Bill.  Hitchens' book makes a similar claim.  But as to [Juanita] Broaddrick's allegation, apparently only one national reporter, Sam Donaldson, ever asked Bill Clinton about the charge.  To Donaldson's question, Clinton said, in effect, talk to my lawyer.  As to Hillary, it does not appear that a reporter has ever asked her about Broaddrick's allegation.

Jason Chaffetz drops bombshell, says Sessions refuses to prosecute Obama, Clinton crimes.  While appearing as a guest on Fox News Saturday night [9/30/2017], former Rep. Jason Chaffetz dropped a bombshell, telling Judge Jeanine Pirro that Attorney General Jeff Sessions refuses to pursue "major" cases involving former President Barack Obama or 2016 Democrat presidential nominee Hillary Clinton.  "Barack Obama and his administration did things that if we did we'd all be in jail right now," Pirro said, highlighting her long legal career.

After Self-Reflection, Journalists Discover They've Been Too Critical Of... Democrats.  [Scroll down]  If it hadn't been for some overeager journalist, we might not know that then-FBI director James Comey believed any "reasonable person" would have known that her server was not an appropriate venue for classified emails.  We may not have known that Clinton sent 110 emails containing clearly marked classified information; that 36 of them contained secret information; that eight of those email chains contained "top secret" information.  We might not know that the FBI believed "hostile actors" could have "gained access to Secretary Clinton's personal e-mail account."  Without The New York Times, we might not have known that this was almost surely true.  The correct way to report on Hillary Clinton is simultaneously treating her like the most competent woman who ever lived but also one who can be easily overwhelmed by emails and simple markings on classified documents.  Hillary is not corrupt, her peccadillos are nothing to get too excited about.

It Took a Village to See Through Her.  [Scroll down]  The Village does not trust you.  If it had been only about The Server, you might have gotten a pass.  But there had been cattle futures.  Whitewater.  The White House travel office.  Filegate.  That thing about having faced sniper fire when landing in Bosnia, even though the line of sweet little girls holding little flowers to greet you at that airport seemed impervious to Slobodan Milosevic's perilous projectiles.  That other thing about your Christian name having been conferred on you by your loving parents in honor of Sir Edmund Percival Hillary, the first confirmed climber of Mount Everest, whose achievement on May 29, 1953 came five years and seven months after you were born on October 26, 1947.  The missing attorney-billing records from the Rose law firm.  The Saul Alinsky bond.  Sidney Blumenthal and the effort to character-assassinate Barack Obama.  Your laughing over the acquittal of the child rapist you got freed.  Benghazi: you telling the widows of the fallen martyrs that their loved heroes had died because of a dopey YouTube flick that no one could watch beyond three minutes, while secretly sharing with Chelsea that they actually had been murdered by Al Qaeda on the anniversary of Bin Laden's 9/11 attacks.  Those $250,000 speech honoraria for 15-minute closed-door shmoozes with Wall Street investors and Clinton donors.  And stealing furniture from the White House.

Hillary Practices Alternate Reality Thinking.  [Scroll down]  From here, the scandals are too numerous to mention, beginning with getting fired from the Watergate legal team for unethical behavior.  In the Alternate Reality world of the extreme left, it doesn't matter how many rules you violate or how many laws you break in the pursuit of a worthy cause such as bagging a long-time enemy of the left, Richard Nixon.  The trick is in not getting caught.  Hillary was never that good at not getting caught.  Instead of some elaborate cover-up scheme, she would simply 'lose' the Rose law firm files or misplace the FBI confidential reports on political opponents.  She would pretend that it made no difference that her malicious placing of politics over the security of State Department employees cost the lives of 4 Americans in Benghazi.  She exposed top secret classified information on an unprotected server, low-hanging fruit for any hacker, state-supported or not, and then pretended to be too unsophisticated about computers to understand what she had done.  "Wipe them, you mean like with a cloth?"  In a strange way, it has worked for her, propelling her almost all the way to the top.

What Happened?! — Video Emerges of Hillary Clinton Saying Illegal Immigrant Children Have to Go.  As Hillary Clinton begins a book tour to promote her 2016 campaign autopsy "What Happened," video has begun to swirl online of a 2014 interview between her and CNN's Christiane Amanpour to promote her previous book, "Hard Choices."  During the exchange, Clinton had some tough words for the children of illegal immigrants, including waves of unaccompanied minors coming in 2014 — telling Amanpour that the United States was a nation of laws and that they probably had to go.  "We have to send a clear message, just because your child gets across the border, that doesn't mean the child gets to stay," said Clinton "So, we don't want to send a message that is contrary to our laws or will encourage more children to make that dangerous journey."  [Video clip]

Convicted Clinton Foreign Financier Returns To U.S..  When James Riady and his family's company, called the Lippo Group, pled guilty to campaign fraud in the 1990s for donations to Bill Clinton, it looked as if the Indonesian-based businessman's days were over — and just another ugly chapter of American political history.  Yet, starting in 2011 when Hillary Clinton was secretary of state, the Riadys started their return to the United States through a new Chinese subsidiary called Lippo China Resources, which sought to become a minority owner in a Utah company called CS Mining.  Riady's Lippo China Resources hopes to obtain majority ownership of the Utah company at a bankruptcy court hearing Friday in Salt Lake City.  They are trying to acquire the land — the size of Manhattan — at fire-sale prices, The Daily Caller News Foundation's Investigative Group has found.

Collusion? What About Chinagate and Ted Kennedy's Outreach to the USSR?  During President Bill Clinton's 1996 campaign for re-election, several individuals allegedly worked on behalf of the Chinese government to influence the presidential election in favor of Clinton. [...] The DNC vice chairman and fundraiser at the center of the DNC's illegal contribution was formerly a top executive involved with Asian and Chinese corporations, with some holdings sold to the Chinese government.  Before joining the DNC, he left his corporate job with a large severance and worked at the Commerce Department for 18 months, where he enjoyed a top-secret clearance.

How Shady Political Operatives and Fake News Control What You See, What You Think, and How You Vote.  One of the earliest smear campaigns perpetrated by the Clintons began even before Bill announced he was running for president, when Hillary was busy devising a preemptive strike against women rumored to be involved with her husband.  According to journalist Carl Bernstein in his biography A Woman in Charge, Hillary reportedly sought to get sworn statements from women Bill was rumored to have slept with.  It was said that she wanted to convince the women to swear they had no relationship with him.  She was correct to anticipate trouble.

Trump vs.  Clintons' Russia ties (guess who always got a free pass).  Many of those sounding the loudest alarm bells over Russian influence in U.S. politics were curiously silent when far greater concerns were raised about the Clintons. [...] Unlike the revelations so far concerning Russian ties in the Trump camp, the Clinton deals involved hundreds of millions of dollars and enormous favors that benefitted Russian interests.  Bill and Hillary Clinton received large sums of money directly and indirectly from Russian officials while Hillary Clinton was Secretary of State.  Bill Clinton was paid a cool $500,000 (well above his normal fee) for a speech in Moscow in 2010.  Who footed the bill?  An investment firm in Moscow called Renaissance Capital, which boasts deep ties to Russian intelligence.

New Clinton Scandal Blows Open:  Illegal Activity Revealed.  Hillary's presidential campaign was doomed from the beginning.  She has literally decades of scandals surrounding her and there is no way that getting elected would have made them go away.  In fact, she would have expanded her corruption using the White House as leverage for it.  We dodged a massive bullet to the brain when Clinton lost.  Her scandals go all the way back to Little Rock, Arkansas and even further than that.  The Clintons' cozy relationship with the Chinese started with a Chinese fry cook at the Fu Lin Chinese Restaurant... he would be the one that would go on to help them receive hundreds of thousands of illegal 'donations' from China.

Your Lyin' Media:  Kellyanne Conway in the Oval Office vs.  Clinton donors trashing the Lincoln Bedroom.  The White House Lincoln Bedroom is a national treasure.  In it, President Abraham Lincoln held cabinet meetings, planned campaigns with his generals, and signed the Emancipation Proclamation.  Lincoln's handwritten copy of the Gettysburg Address is permanently stored in the Bedroom.  Over the course of Bill Clinton's administration, the Lincoln Bedroom was rented to 831 different people.  That total does not include the Clintons' relatives or their guests (of which there were 35); nor does it include daughter Chelsea's guests (72).  Not only did Bill Clinton's heaviest donors rent the room, but CNN reported a little remembered controversy in September 2000:  that Hillary Rodham Clinton was rewarding donors to her Senate campaign with stays in the Bedroom.

The Democratic Party Establishment Is Finished.  The party establishment made a grievous mistake rallying around Hillary Clinton.  It wasn't just a lack of recent political seasoning.  She was a bad candidate, with no message beyond heckling the opposite sideline.  She was a total misfit for both the politics of 2016 and the energy of the Democratic Party as currently constituted.  She could not escape her baggage, and she must own that failure herself.

49 abominable facts about Hillary the media won't tell you.  [#15] Whitewater Scandal:  As partners in the Rose Law Firm, Hillary, Bill, and Jim and Susan McDougal participated in a pyramid scheme that used fraudulent real estate loans involving inflated appraisals to circumvent federal law.  By the time the FBI investigated, every single person involved was indicted or destroyed except Bill and Hillary. [...] [#43] In 1978 and 1979, Hillary turned a $1,000 investment into $98,540 in less than one year trading cattle futures under the guidance of a Tyson Foods outside attorney.  Tyson Foods, under state law, was supposed to dispose of its chicken manure properly, but the state's governor, Bill Clinton, never enforced the law.  Five years later, seepage from the waste contaminated a community's drinking water and made people sick.  It took Bill Clinton 15 months to declare the town a disaster area.

Why Does Mrs. Clinton Fail to Back Her Husband for Pardoning Marc Rich?  [Scroll down]  There were plenty of distinguished free-market types who thought the criminal case against [Marc] Rich was overreaching and that he should've been pursued, if at all, in civil court.  The answer is that the documents remind voters of the stink of Pardon-gate, starting with the pardons of key members of the Puerto Rican terrorist group known as the FALN.  Clinton pardoned 16 of them in 1999.  What horrified people then was the suspicion that the FALN pardons were calculated to help Hillary get elected to the Senate, since New York has so many Puerto Rican voters.

A Fifth Clinton Presidency?  I keep hearing that Hillary Clinton would be "Obama's third term."  The math is wrong.  Barack Obama served the Clinton crime family's third and fourth term.  Electing Hillary would doom America to a fifth Clinton White House.  From 1993-2001, under the "Two for the Price of One" Clinton regime, we suffered through Travelgate, Filegate, Whitewatergate, Missing Rose Law Firm Billing Records-gate, Chinagate, Lincoln Bedroom Rentalgate, Creepergate, Pardongate, Chronic "-Gate" Fatigue, and IRS weaponization against Clinton critics.  From 2008-2016, we endured Hillarycare 2.0, Clintonomics 2.0, more Clintonian IRS witch hunts, systemic sabotage of government transparency, corrupted Justice Department obstruction of justice, and bottomless Foggy Bottom favor peddling.  Think about it.  Obama's "Hope and Change" administration was infested with moldy-oldie Clintonites from day one.  They ruled the roost on hiring decisions, economic policy, health care, energy and the environment, immigration, and, of course, the State Department.

Flashback: Bill Clinton cheered 11th hour indictment that doomed Bush re-election.  Whispers of "payback" are being directed at Hillary Clinton after she decried as "unprecedented" the surprise FBI revival of its probe of her email scandal.  That's because 24 years ago, as former President George H.W. Bush was surging back against challenger Bill Clinton, a special prosecutor raised new charges against Bush in the Iran-Contra probe, prompting Clinton to claim he was running against a "culture of corruption."

The Clintons:  Making Politics Sexy Again.  The press has looked the other way through countless administration and Hillary scandals, downplaying if even reporting such things as her breaches of national security, the pay-to-play Clinton foundation slush fund, Hillary's malfeasance and lies about the Benghazi slaughter, her close connection to the political thugs and election hijackers, the thousands of Wikileaks establishing the gangster nature of her operation.  Throw in a little sex though and the mainstream media briefly halts emailing mash notes to Hillary and files the story.  Oddly enough, the latest scandal sounds awfully like the beginning of the Monica Lewinsky scandal, Bill's tale where he lied and said he "did not have sex with that woman".  Even bombing an aspirin factory couldn't kill that story.

Scandals, 'politicization' of FBI date back to Hillary Clinton's tenure as first lady.  "FBI leadership has a long history of kowtowing to the Clintons," Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton said.  "And it meant that front-line FBI agents were either boxed in, abused or hung out to dry.  Nothing has changed in 20 years.  If anything, the Clintons have perfected the art of intimidating federal law enforcement."

We Have Found The Crook, And It Is She!  After 30 years of government service, pushing big government into every aspect of our lives and shoving it down our throats, Hillary is still making valiant efforts to halt injustice, educate the young, feed the hungry, elevate the poor and house the homeless, and she still just can't quite get the job done and put her finger on the real problem, which is herself and her form of big government.  And after 30 years of campaigning for president, lying about her opponents, promising a big-government solution to every problem for every person, lying about her official positions on critical issues, exposing secure emails to our enemies and fire-bombing Donald Trump's campaign offices, she is still trying to get honesty into her political campaigns.  But her campaigns are the only ones being dishonest and corrupt.

NY Assemblywoman Claudia Tenney:  Hillary Clinton 'Destroyed' New York as Senator; Imagine What She'd Do to Country as President.  Republican New York Assemblywoman Claudia Tenney is warning voters against supporting Hillary Clinton citing Clinton's "failed" record in New York state.  "[Clinton's] failed policies — NAFTA, pay-to-play, corporate welfare — all those things have destroyed central New York," Tenney told listeners on Breitbart News Saturday.  "Can you imagine if she's President what's going to happen to the country?  It's going to be terrible NAFTA deals on steroids, pay-to-play, the entire White House is going to be for sale.  It's a nightmare.  Those policies have caused this problem right in our area."

Think You Know How Bad the Clintons Are?  "The White House is like a subway.  You have to put in coins to open the gates."  Such were the immortal words of one Johnny Chung, who admitted to a Senate committee in 1997 that he funneled $100,000 from the Chinese military to the Democratic National Committee.  In the Clinton White House, it was pay to play all the way.  That either Bill or Hillary had a political life after their treasonous run on Asian piggy banks is a testament to the ever escalating corruption of the American media.  The White House honcho who made the subways run on time — no shock here — was Hillary Clinton.

Hillary Clinton and the Chain of Command at Waco.  The 1993 Waco showdown began when federal authorities rushed the communal home of a religious group, killing six of them, and losing four agents in return.  The FBI then besieged the place with tanks and other armored vehicles, and ended up with the armored vehicles punching holes in the building, and injecting massive quantities of CS "tear gas." When that didn't work, the tanks began to demolish the building, eventually smashing about a quarter of it and damaging the remainder.  A fire broke out and 74 people died in the flames, including twenty-one children.  It was the deadliest law enforcement operation in American history.  After the tragic debacle, the Clinton administration claimed that Attorney General Janet Reno had been solely responsible for the final assault.  There had been no White House input during the siege, and at the end, President Clinton only acquiesced in a decision Reno had made.  Twenty-three years later, there are substantial reasons to doubt the truth of these claims.  The evidence is strong that the Clinton White House was calling the shots, and that Hillary played a prominent role.

Why I can't forgive Hillary Clinton:  She failed to grapple with the seriousness of her husband's egregious Oval Office offenses.  Then-President, Bill Clinton initiated a workplace sexual relationship with an intern.  When caught, he denied having sexual relations with "that woman."  His technocratic rationale for maintaining his innocence was that he used a cigar as a surrogate.  He was 49, and she was 22.  Perhaps the saddest part of this whole sordid episode was Lewinsky's testimony to Kenneth Starr's investigators that she thought they had a real relationship.  The essential point is this:  A man in arguably the most powerful position in the world used a very young woman, in an entry-level position in his employ, as a sexual plaything.  And when found out, the Clintons cruelly destroyed her — together.

Arkansas Is Pleased to Forget Hillary Clinton.  [Scroll down]  Political waves come and go, but Arkansas remains essentially the same, a relatively poor, predominantly white state with a cozy political tradition — a place where centrists with personality can go a long way.  Hillary Clinton may be wise to steer clear of it now — it's a hostile state with only six electoral votes — but in that wisdom, there's a long-term admission of defeat in a game her husband could play better than anybody else.

Trump Is Skewered For Words.  Hillary Is Forgiven For Criminal Acts.  After witnessing years of Hillary Clinton cheating old people of their investment in her White Water scandal; wholesale firing of the long-time White House travel agents; making an impossible $100,000 on a one-time cattle trading deal; suddenly discovering, in her White House, private FBI files that she and Bill claimed had mysteriously disappeared, never to be seen again, they hoped; viciously attacking women who dared to even claim to have had romantic relations with Bill, let alone those who claimed he raped them; her declaration that as first lady she landed in Bosnia under fire from enemy snipers; traveled the world as Secretary of State, at public expense, only to produce one failure after another for American foreign relations; claimed to have had only one personal digital device, only to learn that she had up to thirteen such devices; claimed to have obeyed all federal and State Department regulations, then discovered that she broke multiple laws; to have had personal digital devices destroyed by beating them with a hammer; to have claimed she never handled nor passed on classified email messages on a non-secure server, then it was revealed that she did, multiple times; to have had emails deleted after the FBI, a court of law and congress ordered that they be preserved and protected; being investigated serially by the FBI, which investigations found many crimes had been committed by Mrs. Clinton, but she was excused from prosecution for the unbelievable reason of lack of "intent" to commit the crimes (remember the hammers?); then we discovered that the FBI had given her entire staff immunity from prosecution, and then had their computers destroyed so we could never find out what crimes the immunity covered up, I'm more than a little sick of this lying felon being held in high esteem and protected from laws that the rest of us have to obey.

Trump's Troubles & A Cheat Sheet on Allegations against Bill Clinton.  Here's a blast-from-the-past cheat sheet of some of the most-discussed allegations by Bill Clinton's accusers, which Clinton has denied: [...]

USA Today Op-Ed Boosts Hillary: 'Clinton Marriage Is Something to Brag About'.  Donald Trump's repeated threats to bring up Bill Clinton's treatment of women accusing him of sexual impropriety have brought repeated bouts of bizarre arguments that emerged in the wake of the impeachment process in 1998.  USA Today ran an op-ed on Friday [10/7/2016] with the strange headline "Clinton marriage is something to brag about."  Alicia Shepard, a former ombudsman for National Public Radio, ignored all the publicly aired evidence of adultery, sexual harassment, and even accusations of rape, and actually boasted of Bill and Hillary's relationship:  "The Clintons' weather-beaten, time-tested, scandal-ridden marriage is something to be proud of, something to brag about.  It is as significant an achievement as their daughter Chelsea, and might just be the most human thing about Hillary Clinton."  It shouldn't be difficult to argue that the Clinton marriage has been exposed as devoid of fidelity and truth-telling.  Its most obvious strength seems to be their shared greed for presidential power.  That's surely "human," but not admirable.

The Editor says...
Really?  The "Clinton marriage is something to brag about"?  When was the last time they slept in the same bed?  Or lived under the same roof?  Other than sleazy Arkansas-style politics, what do they have in common?

Media buried Clinton's son story for 30 years.  Matt Drudge today [10/3/2016] splashed the Danney Williams story.  He is the son of Bill Clinton.  The media knew about the story for nearly a quarter of a century.  That is how long the national media — Fox News and National Review included — neglected their duty to inform the public, just like they tried with Clinton committing perjury in the Lewinsky scandal.  Which Matt Drudge also made public after the media knew and ignored the scandal back in 1998.  Olivia Nuzzi of the Daily Beast broke the Danney Williams story in May, and the rest of the media ignored it.  Till today.

Kathleen Willey Says New Clinton Woman To Step Forward.  A woman is expected to step forward and tell her story about her experiences with Bill Clinton in Arkansas Kathleen Willey announced on her Facebook page Sunday night [10/2/2016].  The woman was an Arkansas TV reporter and is expected to tell radio host Aaron Klein her story Sunday night. [...] Willey is a former White House aide who, in 1998, claimed on "60 Minutes" that Bill Clinton had sexually assaulted her on November 29, 1993, during his first term as President.

The Clintons take tax deduction for Bill's used underwear.  The Clintons deducted from the federal income tax returns the "value" of Bill's used underwear that the Clintons supposedly donated to charities. [...] The Clintons, and their cheerleaders in the MSM, are now questioning why Trump took a legal deduction for a business loss of about $900 million twenty years ago.

Flashback: Reuters Audit Finds Clinton Charity Hiding Foreign Donations on IRS Tax Filings.  With all the MSM banter about taxes today in the headlines, here's a report that was conveniently dismissed by the same pearl-clutching media.  In April 2015 Reuters reported on Hillary Clinton's family charities falsifying tax filings to the IRS and not reporting donations from foreign governments.

Why No Self-Respecting Woman Can Vote for Hillary.  Hillary Clinton is the very opposite of the smart, independent female role model once hoped-for as the first woman president.  For nearly five decades she has defended her serial predator and accused rapist husband whose despicable behavior she denied while behind the scenes she viciously trashed his victims and often ruined their lives.  Hillary conducted her own personal war on women against the very same women her own husband had already savaged.  And now she wants us to believe her whole life has been about helping women and children.

The Clintons took improper Whitewater tax deductions.  The Clintons took improper tax deductions for losses and expenses in the Whitewater land deals.  Then, at the instruction of their attorney, in 1996 the Clintons had to amend their tax returns to pay IRS for the improper and excessive deductions related to Whitewater.

Hillary Furious as Linda Tripp Returns, Reveals "Beyond Chilling" New Hillary Info.  [Former Clinton White House staffer Linda] Tripp recently took part in a lengthy interview with Breitbart reporter Aaron Klein, during which she recalled many of the various Clinton scandals that unsurprisingly seemed to foreshadow some of the Clinton's more recent scandalous behavior.  She opened up about what she had seen regarding the aftermath of Vince Foster's death, as well as Travelgate, Filegate and the Whitewater scandal, with one common theme seemingly connecting them all together — a lax attitude on the part of the Clintons regarding classified information and security issues.

Prostitute's son says ex-President is his father and claims Hillary 'banished' him.  Rumors that Bill Clinton once fathered a child with a prostitute have reemerged, as the now 30-year-old man makes a bid to have the former president recognize him as a son.  Danney Williams started a Facebook page in December, under the new name Danney Williams-Clinton, with the apparent intention of grabbing the Clintons' attention.  The claims that Danney is the former president's love child aren't new, but they haven't exactly been put to rest either.

Bill Clinton accuser Kathleen Willey:  Hillary was complicit in his sexual misconduct.  One of several women who have accused former President Bill Clinton of sexual misconduct is speaking out, saying Hillary Clinton shouldn't be exempt from criticism over her handling of the affairs that nearly ended her husband's presidency in the 1990s.  Kathleen Willey — a former volunteer White House aide who accused Bill Clinton of making aggressive, unwanted advances during a private meeting in 1993 — said she holds Hillary Clinton responsible for smearing her and the many other women who have come forward with stories about their treatment at the hands of her husband.

What About Hillary's Decades Of Humiliating Women?  Will the media run with this?  Of course not.  Monica Lewinsky was called a "narcissistic loony toon" by Hillary (who has never denied that).  She called Gennifer Flowers "trailer trash."  When former Sen. Bob Packwood was accused of sexual harassment, Clinton told her friend Blair that she was "tired of all those whiney women," and that she needed Packwood on health care. [...] If you remember, Hillary said earlier this year on the subject of sexual assault that "everybody should be believed at first until they are disbelieved based on evidence."  Yet, Hillary not only didn't believe the credible accusers, which stands at over ten women, but actively worked to destroy them.

The Editor says...
The article immediately above is an analysis and commentary on the one below.

What About Hillary's Decades of Humiliating Women?  The media jumped on the opportunity to bash Trump for something he said decades earlier and help paint Clinton as a feminist defender.  But what about Juanita Broaddrick?  Or Paula Jones?  Or Kathleen Willey?  Or Gennifer Flowers?  You won't see Anderson Cooper bring these women on and ask how they felt when they were humiliated and maligned by Hillary Clinton or assaulted by her husband.

Hillary and the Rodeo Queens.  The most read story on the Washington Post website Thursday [9/29/2016] was a little number called "Enabler or family defender?  How Hillary Clinton responded to husband's accusers."  As a piece of explanatory journalism it was weirdly imprecise and incomplete.  The Post's reporter depicts Clinton as a wife whose political enemies, with their endless accusations about her husband's ever-failing zipper, left her no choice but to defend him "with steely determination."  An old friend describes the Clintons' attitude:  "These people are not going to run over us."  But who are "these people"?  The Post would have you believe they're all those ill-tempered Republicans.  But the statement is more accurate if "these people" are taken to be the women who have been reckless enough to have sex with Bill Clinton.

Clinton Presidency:  The Most Corrupt in American History.  [O]fficials of the Clinton administration have personally profited from their offices.  Most notable is former Agriculture Secretary Mike Espy, who resigned in the face of allegations that he had taken illegal gifts from Tyson Foods and who, according to the recent findings of a federal jury, received illegal gifts from Sun-Diamond Growers, who apparently sought favors from his Department.  The late Ron Brown, former Commerce Secretary, before his death in a tragic air crash in Bosnia, also was being investigated by a special prosecutor for various offenses, including receipt of bribes and falsification of his financial disclosure report.

Hillary, They Have Names.  Their names are Juanita Broaddrick, Gennifer Flowers, Paula Jones, Kathleen Willey, Eileen Wellstone, Sally Perdue, Elizabeth Gracen, Carolyn Moffet, Monica Lewinsky, and others too numerous to list.  And although I can't confirm if the foreign-born among them all hold citizenship, one bets that few cast votes for his enabler this November.

Linda Tripp Reopens Vince Foster, Filegate, Travelgate, Whitewater Scandals.  As a White House staffer who worked directly adjacent to Hillary Clinton's second floor West Wing office, Linda Tripp was afforded a front row seat to some of the most infamous scandals to rock the Bill Clinton White House.  Tripp possesses insider information on the scandals known as Travelgate, Filegate and Whitewater, and she personally witnessed the handling of documents from Vince Foster's office the morning after the Deputy White House Counsel was found dead in an apparent suicide.  Foster was heavily involved in defending the Clintons in the Travelgate, Filegate and Whitewater cases.  Tripp was the last person known to have spoken to Foster before his death.

In Their Own Words:  Why Bill's 'Bimbos' Fear a Hillary Presidency.  As women's issues become part of the 2016 presidential race, it may be instructive to review recent statements made by some of Bill Clinton's alleged female victims regarding the ambitions of Democratic front-runner Hillary Clinton.

How Hillary Clinton responded to husband's accusers.  Hillary Clinton has wrestled with allegations surrounding her husband's infidelities for much of their 40-year marriage, including a sexual harassment lawsuit, a grand jury investigation and an impeachment vote centered on his untruthfulness about a relationship with a White House intern.  Now, her Republican opponent Donald Trump and his surrogates have signaled that he may bring up the subject in the next presidential debate, treacherous territory, given his own infidelities and treatment of women.

Chelsea Clinton Criticizes Trump for Invoking Her Dad's Past, Juanita Broaddrick Responds.  Chelsea Clinton weighed in on Donald Trump invoking her father's "transgressions" this week, and Juanita Broaddrick responded by sending her a message on Twitter.

From Whitewater to Benghazi:  A Clinton-Scandal Primer.  Last week, the State Department announced that it had examined 15,000 Hillary Clinton emails that the former secretary had not turned over, but which the FBI had found in the course of its investigation into her use of a private email server and account.  Of those, perhaps 30 were related to the September 11, 2012, terror attacks in Benghazi.  After years of investigations, might these finally offer some fresh revelation about the attacks?  The answer is apparently no.  The State Department said Wednesday morning that there were only three new emails, with the rest being duplicates.  Of those three, two were simply forwarded copies of messages that had already been sent, including a memo from Clinton to the whole department.  And the third was a January 2013 note from the U.S. ambassador to Brazil congratulating Clinton on her performance during testimony before Congress about the attacks.

How the Clintons Fooled America with Elian Gonzalez.  Let the record show that most Americans approved of the Clinton-Castro shanghaiing of Elian Gonzalez.  A 60 Minutes "interview" of Elian's father Juan Miguel by Dan Rather played a key role in this expert snookering of America.  To wit:  On the April 6th 2000 edition of 60 Minutes, America saw a bewildered and heartsick father pleading to be allowed to have his motherless son accompany him back to Cuba, his cherished homeland.  Dan Rather (who hailed Fidel Castro as "Cuba's Elvis!") was interviewing Elian's "bereaved" father.  How could anyone possibly oppose his heartfelt plea?  How could simple decency and common sense possibly allow for anything else?

Here Comes Hillary — And she's got all her baggage with her, too..  Hillary Clinton officially secured the Democratic party's nomination for president last week, placing her one step closer to the job she has been doggedly pursuing for almost 20 years.  With the exception of Donald Trump, no major-party nominee has ever been so unpopular with the broader public.  The two are viewed unfavorably by an overwhelming majority of their fellow citizens.  Clinton's flaws are manifest, from corruption to the lying to an utter lack of charm.  But she counters them with organization, money, a single-minded determination, and political instincts that are sharper than most people realize.  She will be a formidable candidate in the general election.

Where The Real Stench Is With Hillary.  Remember that this pattern of conduct — selling off American secrets for money by the Clintons — is neither new or particularly surprising given Hillary and Bill Clinton's history.  In 1996 Chinagate involved the transfer of satellite technology usable for the development of military purposes, including nuclear missiles, to China and millions of dollars of donations to the 1996 Clinton-Gore campaign by persons barred from donation because they were not Americans.  Judicial Watch went after this and ultimately prevailed; they not only prevailed they were awarded nearly a million dollars in attorneys fees and costs.  Clinton administration officials destroyed records during this investigation as well in an attempt to prevent discovery and lied under oath.  In addition Yah Lin Trie pled guilty to violating campaign finance rules (which prohibit non-US sources or persons of funds for said donations or structuring to evade said rules) and over 100 other people either took the 5th or fled the country to avoid prosecution.

Ex-Secret Service Agent:  Hillary [was] Only Upset When Bill's Affairs Hurt Their Brand.  A former Secret Service agent for the Clintons told Hannity that he believes Hillary Clinton "accepted" her husband's many infidelities.  Gary Byrne, author of the new tell-all book Crisis of Character, said that Hillary was really only angry when he made them look bad.

Clinton — a loyal oligarch and a handpicked president.  Hillary has learned that voters don't care about the Middle East or government spending.  The millions that voted for Bernie Sanders in the Democratic primary race is proof positive that more Americans don't mind big government.  Whether it is her money, Bill's money or the nation's money, Hillary will spend like a bored housewife inside Saks Fifth Avenue with a new American Express platinum card.  But Hillary has more than just a spending problem.  According to WND.com, Clinton has been associated with 22 scandals over 25 years; from Whitewater at the beginning of Bill's presidency to deleted emails while she was secretary of state.

Clinton White House was den of coke, mistresses: ex-Secret Service officer.  Gary J. Byrne has devoted his life, and risked it, to serve his country — as a member of the US Air Force, a uniformed White House Secret Service officer, and a federal air marshal.  And he believes it is his patriotic duty to do anything he can to prevent Hillary Clinton from becoming president of the United States.  As someone who guarded the Oval Office during the Clinton presidency, Byrne, in an exclusive interview with The Post, tells how he witnessed "the Clinton machine leaving a wake of destruction in just about everything they do."  He says he has also seen Hillary's "dangerous," abusive, paranoid behavior.

The Clintons' First Email Scandal:  Project X 1996-1998.  During Bill Clinton's tenure in the White House a "glitch" (or person) turned off the automatic email archiving system causing the loss of of around one million emails.  The missing emails just "happened" to occur at the same time as the Kenneth Starr was subpoenaing emails for the Monica Lewinsky scandal and congress was asking for emails because they were investigating the "Filegate" scandal.  The emails lost just "happened" to be from the accounts of President Clinton and other who were being investigated in the above scandals and the people who discovered the missing emails were threatened with jail if they spoke about the missing emails.

Flashback: Hillary's First Email Scandal, Project X.  Here at LI, we've been covering the current Hillary Clinton email scandal, but it seems this is not the first time she has engaged in hiding sensitive high level email communications.  As First Lady, Hillary was embroiled in an email controversy that was known as "Project X." [...] Apparently, the Clinton White House was so concerned about the discovery of these Project X emails that they purportedly threatened the contract workers who discovered the problem with loss of their jobs and even jail sentences.

Hillary Clinton:  The First Lady Who Will Not Go Away.  Clutching her pearls, Hillary Clinton is stricken.  Horrified!  Disgusted that Donald Trump would dare to remind voters about all the depraved debauchery she and her lecherous husband inflicted on the innocent American citizen for all of those years.  The poetry books, the cigars, the groping, the hotels, the blue dress, the presidential DNA, the rapes and the biting of the lips.  America has been stuck in the venereal disease clinic ever since in a desperate effort to finally get fumigated from all the Clinton sleaze.  In truth, we will never get clear of all of it.

Why the "scar tissue" excuse for Hillary's document destruction fails.  Ruth Marcus of the Washington Post offers a familiar excuse for Hillary Clinton's insistence on using a private email server.  According to Marcus, "the scar tissue built up over years of politically motivated attacks and endless investigations reinforced Clinton's instinct for the protective crouch."  Marcus' explanation sounds plausible, but it happens to be false (except for the part about "instinct for the protective crouch").  We know the explanation is false because Clinton engaged in similar behavior before she came to Washington as First Lady.  I'm referring to her handling of her law firm's billing records in the Castle Grande matter, [...]

BOOM: 12 Versions of Hillary Clinton's Whitewater Indictments Emerge.  New details continue to emerge from Judicial Watch's Freedom of Information Act fight with the National Archives over the release of draft indictments of Hillary Clinton in the Whitewater case.  According to the Archives, release of the indictments — drafted by an independent counsel examining the Clintons' relationship to a corrupt Arkansas S&L and an alleged cover-up — would violate grand jury secrecy and Mrs. Clinton's personal privacy.  FOIA request denied.  Judicial Watch declined to take "no" for an answer, and so off to court we went.  The case is now in the hands of a federal judge.  In the course of litigation, new facts have come to light.

Donald Trump accuses Hillary Clinton of supporting husband Bill's affairs and destroying the lives of his mistresses.  Donald Trump has accused Hillary Clinton of supporting her husband Bill's infidelity and destroying the lives of his mistresses.  His searing personal jibes at a rally in Oregon came after Hillary branded the GOP frontrunner misogynistic.  'She's been the total enabler,' Trump yelled on Friday night [5/6/2016].  'She would go after these women and destroy their lives.  She was an unbelievably nasty, mean enabler, and what she did to a lot of those women is disgraceful.'

Hillary's Unexpected Problem:  Bill's Political Baggage.  Bill Clinton is a major headache for his wife ... on the campaign trail.  Not because he can be wooly-headed or off message on occasion, or because he reminds us of the endless Clinton vulgarities — the money-grubbing, the sexual misbehavior, the lies, and the stealing of mementoes from the White House.  But because he and his politics are outdated.  Battling against progressive Bernie Sanders, Hillary Clinton has had to repudiate most of husband Bill's signature legislation — on trade, welfare reform and criminal justice, even as she had once championed these accomplishments.  Her detachment from Bill's legacy is perhaps more "conscious uncoupling" than divorce.  Still, it is not what she (or he) expected starting out on this journey.

Hillary Clinton revises history when it doesn't suit her needs.  She and her team focus on suppression of the many old Clinton scandals, major and minor.  For example, she tried not to let anybody read her pro-communist college thesis.  Her whole campaign relies on a steady supply of hypocrisy, dishonesty, chicanery, secrecy, paranoia, flip-flops, and non-committal disingenuousness we haven't seen since... Bill Clinton's presidency!

What is Hillary Hiding?  Hillary has spent her time in the Senate, and her presidential campaign, striving to revamp her image and soften highly negative public perceptions.  Instead of the cold and calculating politician she casts herself as the friendly but tough candidate; instead, of the schemer looking out for number one, she is the leader looking out for the little guy.

Getting Mrs. Clinton:  I think we've reached a signal point in the campaign.  This is the point where, with Hillary Clinton, either you get it or you don't.  There's no dodging now.  You either understand the problem with her candidacy, or you don't.  You either understand who she is, or not.  And if you don't, after 16 years of watching Clintonian dramas, you probably never will.

What will a Hillary Clinton presidency look like?  The answer by now seems obvious:  It will look like her presidential campaign, which in turn looks increasingly like the first Clinton presidency.  Which is to say, high-minded ideals, lowered execution, half truths, outright lies (and imaginary flights), take-no prisoners politics, some very good policy ideas, a presidential spouse given to wallowing in anger and self-pity, and a succession of aides and surrogates pushed under the bus when things don't go right.  Which is to say, often.

'Annie Oakley' changes her tune.  Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton (D-N.Y.), who has cast herself in the past few days as a champion of gun owners, had a very different message when she spoke eight years ago to the Newspaper Association of America.  "CLINTON TAKES AIM AT GUNS," said the all-caps headline on the group's Web site after she told members in May 2000, during her Senate campaign, that "there isn't a more important task" than passing gun-safety laws.

Hillary Fibs in Iowa About Ethanol — She Voted Against It.  During her first visit as a presidential candidate to early-caucus state Iowa, Sen. Hillary Clinton spoke out strongly in favor of boosting the production of ethanol in the United States.  But that's a complete turnaround from her earlier actions regarding the alternative fuel, which is made from corn — and could provide a big boost to the economy of agricultural Iowa. … As a Senator from New York, Clinton has voted at least 17 times against measures promoting ethanol production, the RNC noted.

Ethanol is one of those supposedly good ideas that may not be good after all.

Hillary's First Broken Campaign Promise:  Just two weeks after inviting the American public to "chat" about her bottomless powerlust, Hillary Clinton has already broken her first campaign promise.  At the Democratic National Committee's winter meeting last Friday [2/2/2007], Hillary Clinton made her newest, most left-wing statement on Iraq.  Goaded on by — and trying to drown out — protestors from Code Pink and Iraq Veterans Against the War, Hillary pledged:  "If we in Congress don't end this war before January 2009, as president, I will."  And thus she continued the grand tradition of Clintons lying to the public.

Chicanery and triangulation

The amorphous world of Hillary Clinton:  What she personally believes seems to depend largely on the audience. … That's both the beauty and the problem of Hillary Clinton.  She's whatever she needs to be to advance the only agenda to which she is unwaveringly loyal:  the power of Hillary Clinton.

The night Hillary's funny bone went missing.  You learn a lot about people not just by what they say, but by what they don't say.  Or by what they don't do, where they don't show up.  With a Clinton, no move is accidental.  And she is, of course, considered the most likely Democratic candidate for president in 2008.  Could she win?

Many faces of Hillary – none a winner.  There's something oddly satisfying in the possibility that Clinton being herself is politically disastrous.  And, if she's really just playing one more role according to some classically Clintonian political triangulation, there's something equally satisfying to the prospect that even her fans aren't falling for it anymore.

Obama Joins Right-Wing Attack Machine.  [Scroll down] The hit against Hillary as a triangulator wouldn't have as much punch if her husband hadn't lived off poll-driven, situational politics for eight years.  In a general election, a key point of thematic contention will be whether a Hillary presidency will represent change or — as Republicans will argue — an unwelcome return to the 1990s.

The Clintons' 'politics of personal destruction'.  It may seem unfair to single out [Sen. Hillary] Clinton in this matter when the bunker in which she took shelter was crowded with her fellow quivering candidates.  But Clinton is the front-runner, quite possibly the next president of the United States, and so it is reasonable to focus on her and wonder if, as some allege, she indeed does have a spine.  In this instance, it was nowhere to be found.

Hillary Clinton's memory loss:  Hillary Clinton once again asserted during the latest presidential debate that "the American people know where I've stood for 35 years."  Yet, she repeatedly refuses to tell us where she stands on Social Security reform.  And when she does, Mrs. Clinton misrepresents the condition of Social Security when she and her husband left the White House.

Those 27 Words.  What Hillary Clinton was trying to say, it seems, was anything to avoid suggesting that she had made a mistake in voting for the 2002 joint resolution authorizing the use of force against Iraq.  Admitting error regarding Iraq has become the litmus test for Democratic candidates.

Anti-war rowdies torment Hillary.  Stopping just a fraction of an inch short of saying it outright, [Hillary Clinton] calculatedly implies that she was duped by the Bush administration into supporting the removal of the Saddam regime by military force.  But if the Bush administration duped her into over-rating Saddam as a threat, then she is left to answer this question:  Who duped her spouse — President Bill Clinton — and his top aides into likewise over-rating the Saddam threat?

At Wal-Mart, Clinton didn't upset any carts.  At a Democratic presidential debate last month, Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton described Wal-Mart, the world's largest retail company, as a "mixed blessing."  She spoke from experience.  From 1986 to 1992, Clinton was a member of its board of directors, carefully navigating through a spate of internal policy concerns that now weigh on Wal-Mart's corporate image.

Clinton Remained Silent As Wal-Mart Fought Unions.  In six years as a member of the Wal-Mart board of directors, between 1986 and 1992, Hillary Clinton remained silent as the world's largest retailer waged a major campaign against labor unions seeking to represent store workers.

As a Director, Clinton Moved Wal-Mart Board, but Only to a Point.  Mrs. Clinton's six-year tenure as a director of Wal-Mart, the nation's largest company, remains a little known chapter in her closely scrutinized career.  And it is little known for a reason.  Mrs. Clinton rarely, if ever, discusses it, leaving her board membership out of her speeches and off her campaign Web site.

Clintons Mum on Tsunami Donation.  Multimillionaire political couple Bill and Hillary Clinton pledged on Friday [12/31/2004] to make a generous personal donation to relief efforts in the wake of the Christmas tsunami disaster.  But the ex-prez and his senator wife won't say exactly how generous they intend to be.

Liberals slam Hillary over dodge tactics.  In pointed political broadsides from some of the major liberal-leaning publications — including the New York Times and The Washington Post — the New York senator has been the target of surprisingly sharp criticism about her refusal to answer policy questions, investigative reporting about her husband's business dealings and unsavory fundraisers, and even assertions that her candidacy was solely beholden to her husband's political influence.

Slick Hillary:  Without her husband's gift for triangulation and obfuscation, Hillary Clinton has forgotten that if you're going to take both sides of an issue, don't do it in the same room before the same audience.

Clinton Not Ready to Release Tax Returns.  Resisting calls from Barack Obama to release her income tax returns, Hillary Rodham Clinton said Monday she would only do so if she secures the Democratic presidential nomination and contended her rival had been less than candid about his relationship with major campaign contributors.

What are the Clintons Hiding?  [Scroll down]  When will Hillary Clinton finally release her tax returns?  This isn't such a stretch:  Bill and Hillary's finances are co-mingled, and the senator recently loaned her sinking campaign $5 million.  Indeed, the loan was made at about the same time that Bill Clinton ended a business relationship with another longtime benefactor that allowed him to reap a $20 million bonanza.  On top of the $50 million he's earned for himself and the hundreds of millions he's picked up for his global charities — not to mention his presidential library.  Yet he refuses to identify most of the sources of all this cash.  What's the big mystery?

Clinton Won't Release Taxes Soon.  Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton says she won't release her tax returns until she has the Democratic presidential nomination in hand, and not before tax filing time comes in mid-April.  Clinton argued for openness Tuesday night [2/26/2008] during her latest debate with Democratic rival Barack Obama.

Why Clinton Stands to Lose Millions:  Thanks to a little-known provision in 2002's McCain-Feingold campaign-finance reform bill, a campaign must repay the loan to a candidate before Election Day.  In this case, that's the nominating convention.  After the election has passed, a bankrupt campaign is limited to gathering just $250,000 from contributors, which means that modest sum is all it can give back to a candidate.  In short, Clinton stands to lose $11,150,000.

Poor Hillary.  The Clintons raked in more than $100 million in personal income since leaving the White House in 2001.  The idea that they would have any trouble paying back their campaign debts or compensating themselves (regardless of what the campaign laws say) for their own money spent on the campaign is laughable.

The $20 Million Blues:  [Scroll down] Clinton, however, might stay in the race in part because of financial reasons.  A little more than $11 million has come from her own pocket, and if she can't raise that by the summer convention, she'll be out the money for good. … If Clinton quits before the convention, she'll have to talk donors into giving her money to retire the debt.

The Editor says...
Maybe she can wring some more money out of the Chinese dishwashers. [1] [2] [3] [4] [5]

Hillary's Debt-ly Sins.  Hillary Rodham Clinton's campaign is $20 million in debt — and vendors, consultants and aides in her home state are among those getting stiffed, new campaign-finance records show.  The debt includes the $11 million that Clinton herself lent the campaign.

Fact Check:  Clinton and jobs promised.  She's reminded of it all the time around here, so Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton couldn't have been surprised when her failed 2000 campaign promise to bring 200,000 jobs to economically desperate upstate New York became part of the latest presidential debate.  In her first term in the Senate, the region saw a net loss of 26,500 jobs, according to an analysis of U.S. Bureau of Labor statistics by the Business Council of New York State.

Crocodile tears and disingenuousness

Can Hillary Cry Her Way Back to the White House?  When I walked into the office Monday, people were clustering around a computer to watch what they thought they would never see:  Hillary Clinton with the unmistakable look of tears in her eyes.  A woman gazing at the screen was grimacing, saying it was bad.  Three guys watched it over and over, drawn to the "humanized" Hillary.  One reporter who covers security issues cringed.  "We are at war," he said.  "Is this how she'll talk to Kim Jong-il?"

The Crying GameNever underestimate the Clintonian team.  Hillary Clinton is in the midst of a complete focus-group/poll-driven/handler make-over.  And to the degree she sticks to it (a big if), she will do fine.  As we heard tonight, Hillary has now "found her voice"; she suddenly speaks more slowly, there are more bite-the-lip-like pauses, and she has been reminded not to go into frenetic panic mode or hit that screech-owl high note as much.

Tear-Jerking America's Chain.  Girls stick together when boys gang up.  But let's get something straight:  Clinton wasn't emotional because she cares deeply about the country.  She was near tears because she cares deeply about becoming the first woman president.  Thwarted ambition is the politician's waterboard.

The Latest Version of Hillary Clinton:  [Scroll down] She gushed about her "full heart," and how she had "found my own voice."  Sixty years old, with all that massive experience in the work of transforming the nation, and she's just now finding her voice?  More likely, she's just found a new way to disguise her essential self.  This is not her first conspicuous change of convenience.  When she and Bill were married, she declined to take his last name, only to suddenly adopt it for political reasons after he was voted out of the governor's office in 1980.

Never Underestimate the Power of Tears.  Conventional wisdom says that a woman should never cry in the workplace … Professional women are told that they should get tough enough to never break down in the office under any circumstance.  This week, though, the whole nation saw presidential candidate Hillary Clinton get all teary-eyed as she talked about why she is running for president and how much she fears that America might go backward.

Hillary's Crocodile Tears in Connecticut.  I have just seen Hillary Clinton and her former Yale law professor both in tears at a campaign rally here in my home state of Connecticut.  Her tearful professor said how proud he was that his former student was likely to become our next President.  Hillary responded in tears.  My own reaction was of regret that, when I terminated her employment on the Nixon impeachment staff, I had not reported her unethical practices to the appropriate bar associations.

Ambition unmasked in U.S. presidential race.  The feminist who decided to stand by her serially philandering political meal ticket, was mocked by some for crying her way to victory in New Hampshire this week, raising more questions about just how far politicians are willing to go in the quest for personal glory.  And with every such act, ambition takes another hit, a nasty character trait deployed not with a careful understanding of how it relates to ones values and ideals, but, venally, simply to get ahead.

For Cryin' Out Loud.  There she goes again.  It was another two-hanky day on the campaign trail yesterday [2/4/2008], as Hillary Rodham Clinton teared up at an event targeting female voters on the eve of the Super Tuesday elections.

Little Miss Sunshine.  Notice her gold power suits.  The wide stance.  Notice how Hillary's voice has gone up several irritating decibels as she shrieks, "I hear you," to supporters. Sen. Clinton strategically projects the image of front-runner, despite being in a statistical dead heat with rival Barack Obama. … Just like old times, the Clintons are up to their necks in smoke and mirrors and secrecy.  Despite assurances of government transparency, Sen. Clinton wants the public to know what she wants it to know when she wants it to know.

Hillary's Voice:  I have come to the conclusion that Hillary Clinton with either not get the nomination or, if she does, will not get elected.  The reason is her voice.  I don't think there is a man of voting age in America who will want to listen to her every day for four years in office. … Then there are the tears.  What American man wants a President who is prone to burst into tears when she's had a hard day or hears something that touches her deeply?

Hypocrisy

Hillary Rodham Gore:  The upside is that Mrs. Clinton is raising money from the very industries she is bashing, making her sincerity open to question.  The Center for Responsive Politics reports that Mrs. Clinton has raised $269,436 from the pharmaceutical industry, more than any other candidate, including Republicans, and $220,550 from the oil and gas industry, more than double what her closest Democratic rivals raised from the industry.

Democrats and Heretics:  while Mrs. Clinton criticizes Wal-Mart for its lack of a union and refuses money from its political action committee, Mr. Podesta's firm last year received $260,000 representing the retailer in Washington — making his firm Wal-Mart's most highly paid lobbyist. … Mrs. Clinton's campaign is a who's who of K Street lobbyists, from campaign chief Maggie Williams to communications director Howard Wolfson to a long list of volunteer advisers.  Chances are one, two or several dozen have represented, or continue to represent, positions to which Mrs. Clinton is opposed.

Saint Hillary.  Hillary Clinton is on a personal jihad against what she calls the Republican-led "culture of corruption and cronyism" in Washington.  Corruption?  Cronyism?  She's one to talk.  It's hard to think of a more unqualified candidate for Girl Scout of Washington.  But Hillary, queen of the Arkansas mafia, has appointed herself to that role in this, the next stage of her pre-2008 media makeover.

The Hubbell Standard:  Hillary Clinton knows all about sacking U.S. Attorneys.  Congressional Democrats are in full cry over the news this week that the Administration's decision to fire eight U.S. Attorneys originated from — gasp — the White House.  Senator Hillary Clinton joined the fun yesterday, blaming President Bush for "the politicization of our prosecutorial system."  Oh, my.  As it happens, Mrs. Clinton is just the Senator to walk point on this issue of dismissing U.S. attorneys because she has direct personal experience.  In any Congressional probe of the matter, we'd suggest she call herself as the first witness — and bring along Webster Hubbell as her chief counsel.

The Editor would remind you ...
Attorney General Janet Reno demanded the resignation of all United States Attorneys on March 24, l993.*

Re-written and revised history

Hillary's re-invented history:  Either Mrs. Clinton is, or used to be, dumb as a post, or she made up the story.  As it happens, Mrs. Clinton doesn't always tell the letter-to-NASA story the same way.  As she was inducted in the National Women's Hall of Fame this weekend, Mrs. Clinton said the young Hillary Rodham was 14 and inspired by Alan Shepherd's 1961 trip into space when she wrote to the National Aeronautics and Space Administration.  But in this transcript of a May 2005 commencement speech by Sen. Hillary Clinton, archived on her own Web site, the young Hillary is 12 when the incident occurs:  "I wrote off to this new agency called NASA, and asked how a 12-year old girl could become an astronaut."

Secrecy

Team Clinton Does Its Best Work In Secret.  Let's face it:  The Clintons will say anything in their quests for the presidency.  Just as Bill Clinton railed against Republican corruption in 1992, promising his would be "the most ethical administration in history," Hillary Clinton now is presenting herself as the antidote of the Republican "culture of corruption" and the antithesis of the Bush administration's penchant for secrecy.  What makes this argument all the more laughable is that secrecy has always been their modus operandi, and their key method of their scandal damage control.

Clinton schedule a mystery.  After a rally in Philadelphia Tuesday night, the traveling reporters covering Hillary Rodham Clinton tried in vain to get an answer to what seemed like a simple request:  What was the candidate's schedule for the next day?  Only one evening event was on the books.  But word had trickled through the press corps that she might also speak at a breakfast meeting of the U.S. Hispanic Chamber of Commerce.  Or might not.  Or, again, might.

Clinton's Schedules as First Lady to be Released.  The National Archives announced on Tuesday [3/18/2008] that 11,046 pages of Senator Hillary Rodham's White House schedules will be released on Wednesday.  The records were the subject of a legal fight between Judicial Watch, a conservative watchdog group, and the National Archives, which has been slow to comply with a request to release the records, arguing that the vetting process takes time.

Taboo topics

Hillary's Doomed Taboo:  Does Hillary realize that this taboo-enforcement strategy plays into the worst aspect of her public image — the dogmatic PC enforcer whose loyal aides seem, at least in public, to live in zombie-like fear that too much candor could incur her wrath?  I don't think it's too much to draw a line from Hillary's attempt to suppress the speech of her fellow candidates to a general, instinctive distaste for the tumult and self-expression inherent in democracy itself.

Clintons brace for 'wandering Bill' claims.  Hillary Clinton's aides have launched a characteristically withering attack against two long-expected biographies of the Democratic presidential front-runner.  They have dismissed one as "totally discredited" because of a single disputed anecdote, and claim that both simply rehash old ground.

Hillary carefully avoids the use of the Clinton name.

The Mononym Platform:  There's something missing in Senator Hillary Rodham Clinton's recently unveiled presidential campaign, something so conspicuous in its absence that it's certain to set off debate — not on Pennsylvania Avenue, but on Madison Avenue.  What's missing is her surname.  Someone has apparently decided that Mrs. Clinton will be the first major single-name candidate since 1952, when Ike's P.R. gurus realized that "Eisenhower" was tough to fit on a bumper sticker.

It's just Hillary, if you please.  As she seeks to become the country's first female president, Clinton wants to be known to supporters simply as 'Hillary' — no married name or maiden name necessary.  Any reference to Clinton, or Rodham, is absent from the New York's senator's official campaign biography except in direct reference to her husband, Bill, or her father, Hugh.

Paranoia

Hill is Right Back to Her Old Ways.  Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton yesterday [3/13/2007] revived a much-ridiculed phrase she first used during the Monica Lewinsky scandal — saying there is a "vast-right-wing conspiracy" to attack Democrats and steal elections.

Is Hillary Cracking Up?  Journalists and Democratic politicians seemed to sense that once again Clintonistas had gone too far.  Of course, the Clintons always do.  They predictably overreact and it gets them into trouble — avoidable trouble.

Clinton:  Right-Wing Conspiracy Is Back.  Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Rodham Clinton on Tuesday [3/13/2007] described past Republican political malfeasance in New Hampshire as evidence of a "vast, right-wing conspiracy."  Clinton's barbed comments revived a term she coined for the partisan plotting during her husband's presidential tenure and echoed remarks she made last weekend in New Hampshire, which holds the nation's first primary.

Let me refresh your memory...
Chronology of the Clinton-Lewinsky Scandal.

Clinton camp questions FBI release of Marc Rich pardon files.  Hillary Clinton's presidential campaign is raising questions about the timing of the FBI's release Tuesday of records on a 15-year-old investigation into President Bill Clinton's pardon to fugitive financier Marc Rich.  The FBI posted the 129 pages of records in its online Freedom of Information Act reading room in apparent response to a FOIA request seeking information on FBI inquiries into the Clinton Foundation.

Hillary is a deranged sociopathic war criminal who should be indicted for conspiracy and murder.  As Secretary of State, Hillary Clinton directly oversaw the overthrow of Libyan strongman Moammar Gadhafi via NATO bombing in support of al-Qaida-linked terror groups.  This resulted in a failed state, the murder of hundreds of thousands (if not millions) of innocent Libyan citizens — including Christians — the rise of ISIS (and other terror organizations) and the Benghazi gun-running operation that resulted in the death of American Ambassador Christopher Stevens, U.S. Foreign Service operative Sean Smith, and CIA contractors Gen Doherty and Tyrone S. Woods.  "We came, we saw, he died," she cackled, callously oblivious and impervious to the death, destruction and chaos she caused or the brutal and inhuman way in which Gadhafi was beaten, sodomized and summarily executed.

WikiLeaks: What Hillary's Closest Aides And Allies Really Think Of Her.  When it comes to covering up the truth, Richard M. Nixon has nothing on Hillary R. Clinton.  Clinton's aides and allies seemingly do little else than cover up for Hillary's misconduct, malfeasance and incompetence — in a way that has glaringly come to light as a result of the WikiLeaks trove.

Bill Clinton Mistress Dolly Kyle:  Hillary 'Uses Lies, Threats, Intimidation, Violence'.  [Dolly] Kyle recalled an early relationship between Bill Clinton and a woman named Marla Crider at the University of Arkansas, before Bill and Hillary got married.  "Hillary found out about Marla.  She started threatening her, she was calling her in the middle of the night, she destroyed her letters to Billy.  She warned her to stay away from him."  Kyle thinks Hillary Clinton remains "about to melt down at any moment," describing her as "cognitively impaired."  "Look at the CDC website, and see the symptoms for cognitive impairment.  She is showing a lot of those," Kyle asserted.  "Including memory loss, and, most terrifyingly, the inability to handle a crisis, an emergency."

Here's The (Long) List Of Women Who Have Accused Bill Clinton Of Sexual Misconduct.  On Wednesday's [5/18/2016] Hannity, GOP presumptive nominee Donald Trump went where many Republicans have hesitated to go in the past:  acknowledging the many women have accused former president Bill Clinton of rape and sexual misconduct.  In addition to his well-known dalliances over the years with, amongst others, Monica Lewinsky and Gennifer Florwers, at least 9 women have accused former president Bill Clinton of sexual misconduct.  In some of these cases, Hillary is believed to have been part of the political operation that went out of its way to attempt to smear and destroy the reputations of Bill Clinton's accusers.

13 Times Hillary Clinton Was A Truly 'Nasty Woman'.  [#2] When She Threatened A Woman Who Accused Her Husband of Rape:  Juanita Broaddrick said Bill Clinton brutally raped her in 1978 while he was running to become governor of Arkansas.  Shortly afterwards, Hillary allegedly threatened Broadderick into staying silent about the ordeal — or else. [...] This isn't the first time Hillary tried to bully a woman into keeping quiet about her husband's serial philandering and alleged instances of sexual assault.  As The Federalist reported, she has repeatedly done so in order to help herself out politically.

Hillary Clinton's Long History of Targeting Women.  Hillary Clinton's expected presidential campaign is being built around women's issues, but women who have gotten in the way of her family's political goals in the past have often been subjected to her wrath.  As Clinton has appeared at multiple events for women over the past several weeks, her record as an advocate for women has come under increased scrutiny.  Women who have accused her husband, former President Bill Clinton, of sexual misconduct have received special criticism from the former first lady.  One victim of Clinton's wrath was Monica Lewinsky, whom Clinton called a "narcissistic loony toon" in private conversations with close friend Diane Blair.

Unreleased Impeachment Era Evidence Against Bill Clinton Still Sealed By Congress.  Tens of thousands of pages detailing the case for impeachment against former President Bill Clinton have remained locked away from the public for almost 20 years.  Although many believe that the report issued by then Independent Counsel Ken Starr revealed the final findings of his investigation of Clinton in the late 1990's, around 60,000 pages of documents seen by only a few people describe the House Judiciary Committee's case against the 42nd president.  House Judiciary Committee Chairman Henry Hyde hired Chicago attorney and Democrat David Schippers to be the Chief Investigative Counsel to help prosecute the committee's case against Clinton.

Clinton fixer claims he bought photos of Bill with TV star, scrubbed Vince Foster's office at Hillary's request.  The National Enquirer has released their interview with a fixer who claims they worked for the Clintons from 1991 until 2008 to bury stories in the press.  The individual, whose identity is not revealed, details 12 of their fixes in their story, most of which involve Bill's alleged relationships with women.  He claims he purchased photos of Bill on a Hollywood lot with Night Court actress Markie Post, paid two women named 'Doreen' and 'Julianne' shortly after Bill was inaugurated and resolved 'rumors inside the White House' of an alleged affair between Bill and Entertainment Tonight host Mary Hart.  The fixer also claims Hillary had him scrub Vice Foster's office and remove Whitewater documents, just two hours after the White House employee's lifeless body was found in a park outside Washington DC.

VP Biden says Bill Clinton's conduct 'shouldn't matter' in election, slams Trump.  Vice President Joe Biden says former President Bill Clinton's past conduct is not a relevant issue in assessing the candidacy of Hillary Clinton.  "It shouldn't matter:  Look, I can't make an excuse for Bill Clinton's conduct, and I wouldn't attempt to make any excuses for the conduct, but he paid a price for it," Biden said in an interview Thursday with NBC's "Meet the Press."  The interview will be aired on Sunday's show.  A video clip was posted online Friday [10/14/2016].  "He paid a price, he was impeached, and he expressed his deep sorrow and acknowledged what he did," said Biden, whose comments came after Donald Trump held a photo opportunity with three women who have accused former President Clinton of sexual misconduct.

Hillary's Waco Deception.  Before Benghazi, before the e-mail scandal, before the numerous allegations of impropriety involving the Clinton Foundation, there was Waco.  On April 19, 1993, a few short months into Bill Clinton's first presidential term, nearly 80 men, women, and children perished at Mt. Carmel, their religious community and home near Waco, Texas.  A Federal investigation into the tragedy in 2000 found that government agents were not responsible for the deaths of Davidian civilians — that the sect members who died there had committed mass suicide, similar to the Kool-Aid drinking by Jim Jones' aficionados, but more violent.  This verdict was significant, given the allegations by Davidian survivors and relatives that sect members had been shot as they tried to flee their burning buildings.  And while many laid blame for the outcome at the feet of then-Attorney General Janet Reno, there are claims that Hillary Clinton was actually the one in charge.

Did someone mention Waco?

Clinton's son will not be denied.  As governor of Arkansas, Bill Clinton cheated with a prostitute on his mistress, Gennifer Flowers, and his wife, Hillary, when his daughter, Chelsea was four.  The prostitute bore him a son whom he refused to take care of emotionally or financially.  The press covered this up for thirty years.  No longer.  Clinton's son, Danney Williams, at 30, has set the record straight.  And protesters at Clinton's rallies for his wife are letting the world know Danney Boy is here.

Protester shouts 'justice for Danney Williams' at Bill Clinton.  Bill Clinton was on the stage for less than one minute before he was confronted about allegations he had a son with a black prostitute.  "Justice for Danney Williams!" a man shouted multiple times at Clinton's Cincinnati rally on Friday, pointing at the former president.

Shocking But True:  Hillary's Never Asked by Media About Broaddrick.  The Washington Free Beacon noted that former NBC investigative reporter Michael Isikoff insisted NBC News should release the full tape of its interview with Juanita Broaddrick — "NBC ought to check its archive and run the full interview.  (As long as they're now culling their archives!)"  He added that it was "amazing to watch" Democrats that he saw defend Bill Clinton against his accusers now jump to embrace women accusing Trump.  "It's amazing to watch how D's who attacked those women are now embracing the Trump accusers, while the Rs who believed them attack them," Isikoff said.  Since Broaddrick attended the second presidential debate — with Kathleen Willey and Paula Jones, who both claimed non-consensual harassment from Clinton — Hillary defenders have tried to pretend they were just bimbos.

Anti-Trump Feminism's Fever Pitch.  Enjoying maximum power over politics and culture, the czarinas of feminism have informed Americans headed for Hillary's animal farm that "not all pigs are equal."  Hence, Hillary, with grimly comic gall, can say that a man like Trump doesn't "belong in the White House" while riding back to it on the coattails of a credibly accused rapist.

Michael Isikoff:  NBC Should Release Full Juanita Broaddrick Interview.  The reporter that first learned about Bill Clinton's affair with Monica Lewinsky said on Thursday that NBC is sitting on the full tape of its initial interview with Bill Clinton rape accuser Juanita Broaddrick and should release it before the election.  Michael Isikoff, who was a leading reporter during the Monica Lewinsky scandal, said in a Thursday discussion that NBC should release a 17-year-old tape of an interview that it conducted with Broaddrick.  Broaddrick has long claimed that the interview that NBC aired edited out her claim that Hillary Clinton was involved in quashing Broaddrick's rape claims.

Michael Issikoff says NBC is sitting on devastating tape of Juanita Broaddrick.  The NBC subsidiary of Comcast is reportedly combing its archives for material damaging to Donald Trump but ignoring requests to air the full interview with Juanita Broaddrick by Lisa Myers 17 years ago.

Gennifer Flowers:  Bill Clinton Paid $200 For Me To Abort His Baby.  In a rare exclusive interview, Gennifer Flowers, who says she had a 12-year affair with Bill Clinton, opened up about what she described as the experience of having an abortion after she says she found out she was pregnant with Clinton's child.  Flowers stated that Clinton personally paid $200 for the abortion in 1977, and she revealed that she was made aware that Hillary Clinton knew that same year about the alleged affair, which Flowers says continued another eleven years or so.

Sure Doesn't Seem Like 41 Years.  Wow!  A real, admirable American couple — making money the old fashioned way since 1979.

Hillary and her media allies throw rape victims under the bus.  The compliant leftists masquerading as feminists are recapitulating their disgrace of the impeachment era, and giving Hillary and her brutish husband a pass, all in the name of late term abortion.  And the media branch of the Democratic Party has gotten the message.  It's the return of slut-shaming for Clinton accusers, courtesy of the ladies of The View.  It turns out that a lot of those accusers are "tramps."

Trump Tapes And Clinton Morals.  "Even presidents have private lives.  It is time to stop the pursuit of personal destruction and the prying into private lives and get on with our national life," President Clinton whined.  It was the late hot summer of '98 and the man dubbed "Slick Willie," the nickname he claimed to dislike the most, was facing the prospect of becoming the first president to be successfully impeached.  These days the Clintons seem to have changed their minds about whether presidents should have private lives that ought to be pried into.

The Man Who Taught Hillary How to Shred Haunts Wikileaks Dump.  "Before I begin," Hillary Clinton told an audience at the Brookings Institute in December 2015, "I want to acknowledge the loss of a beloved member of our foreign policy family, Sandy Berger."  In fact, Berger appears repeatedly in the Wikileaks dump of emails from and to John Podesta, chairman of Hillary Clinton's campaign.  In reading through them, one gets the impression that if Berger was not an architect of the Iranian nuclear deal, he was at least a major salesman.  Hillary had good cause to praise Berger.  In the run-up to the 2004 9/11 hearings, Berger taught Hillary by example that, if you were a prominent Democrat, it was possible to destroy damaging classified information and get away with it.

Rape Victim:  Hillary Clinton Laughed At Me And Blamed Me For Getting Raped.  When Kathy Shelton was 12 years old, she was raped by Thomas Alfred Taylor, a 41-year-old man who served less than a year in prison after Hillary Clinton got him off on a legal technicality.  In 1975, Clinton was Taylor's court-appointed lawyer and has since laughed about getting him off and even intimated that she thought he was guilty, which can be heard in audio recordings obtained and published by The Washington Free Beacon.

Fact-Check: Yes, Hillary Clinton Did Laugh After Successfully Defending a Child Rapist.  During the second presidential debate, Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump said, "Hillary Clinton attacked them viciously," referring to former president Bill Clinton's female victims and a child rape victim whose attacker Clinton defended.  "One of them is a wonderful woman, [who] at 12 years old was raped.  At twelve.  Her client — she represented — got him off, laughing on two separate occasions, laughing at the girl that was raped.  Kathy Shelton, that young woman, is here with us tonight.  So, don't tell me about words," Trump said.

Whom Are You Going to Believe?  Media Fact Checkers or Your Lying Ears.  Media fact checkers perform a vital function.  They're opinion editorials that are labeled as facts.  They have as much in common with facts as 1984's Ministry of Truth.  They find ways to declare that the truth is a lie and a lie is the truth.  But Politico's own version of Fact Check (every self-respecting lefty media outlet has to have one now) known as the Wrongometer has gone one better.  It's declared that an audio tape of Hillary Clinton laughing about getting off a 12-year-old girl's rapist is not a fact. [...] And yet, oddly enough, here's the tape of Hillary laughing.

How Hillary Clinton Treated Bill Clinton's Female Accusers.  "Bimbo eruptions."  "I would crucify her."  "We have to destroy her story."  These are just some of the things said and done by Hillary Clinton to undermine women who accused her husband, Bill Clinton, of infidelity and even assault.

I'm Shocked, Shocked at Trump's naughty words.  Big Dog Clinton actually groped, actually touched, actually had affairs and molestation buffets with women mostly unwilling and subsequently punished by Ms. Hillary Rodham for the effrontery of having been chosen for handwork not including embroidery, cigar-jobbing, and dress malingering on a variety of handy damsels in his purview, the most unfortunate of whom were profusely worked over by the missus.  Tires slashed.  Pets killed.  Fired from jobs.  Mocked in public and maligned as "trailer trash" and similar assorted negatives.  All carried out by the "bimbo eruption" teams set upon these hapless victims of WJC's lustful heart.

Hillary's hired thugs.  As she breaks out in coughing spells, and has to be propped up at the lectern in her heavily cushioned pantsuits, it is easy for us to have forgotten the intimidating specter she struck for such woman as Gennifer Flowers, Kathleen Willey, the young Monica or even Juanita Broaddrick, who allegedly was raped by smiling Bill.  Yet in decades past she was a highly volatile figure and, in fact, posed a threat to White House personnel.  There are all those witnesses who have reported seeing her bean her husband or members of the Secret Service with a book or a lamp.  I think even the loyal George Stephanopoulos reported her aggression.

Media omit Hillary's role in Bill's sex scandal.  Donald Trump is forcing media organizations to recall former President Bill Clinton's sex scandal-ridden past, but many reporters are omitting a key detail about the scandals:  Hillary Clinton's role in defending her husband and attacking his accusers.  Instead, the media is suggesting that Hillary Clinton should now be exempt from talking about it at all, despite the active role she played in the 1990s.

Juanita Broaddrick barraged with dozens of hate messages from Hillary trolls.  Juanita Broaddrick has accused Bill Clinton of raping her in 1978, and most recently, she's challenged Chelsea Clinton's complaints about "attacks" on her parents.  Now, Hillary's trolls are making Broaddrick pay the price for speaking up.  The retired Arkansas nursing home administrator shared exclusively with The American Mirror some of the awful messages social media users have sent her over the last two days.

Uh, Hillary, Your Hubby Caused the 2008 Recession.  On the debate stage Monday night, Hillary Clinton smugly repeated the big lie that Democrats have been telling with something close to impunity since 2008.  "We had the worst financial crisis, the Great Recession, the worst since the 1930s," said Hillary.  "That was in large part because of tax policies that slashed taxes on the wealthy, failed to invest in the middle class, took their eyes off of Wall Street, and created a perfect storm."  In fact, tax policies had almost nothing to do with the recession of 2008.  What caused the market crash was the collapse of the subprime market.  If that collapse had an architect-in-chief, his name was Bill Clinton.  This is not a speculation.  It is an easily documented fact.

Hillary Clinton and Pardongate.  During his eight years in office, President Clinton granted 450 pardons and commutations.  Thirty-nine percent of them were granted in his last day in office.  He signed 140 pardons and 36 commutations.  Most Americans were appalled by these disgraceful pardons.  Many Democrats from President Carter to Senator Schumer refused to defend the pardon of Marc Rich.  About a month after leaving office, President Clinton wrote an op-ed explaining his reasons for granting the pardon of Marc Rich.  He wrote, "The suggestion that I granted the pardons because Mr. Rich's former wife, Denise, made political contributions and contributed to the Clinton library foundation is utterly false.  There was absolutely no quid pro quo."  It's remarkable that he admits that Denise Rich donated money and then he pretends it isn't connected to the pardon.  She was no ordinary contributor.  Denise donated $1 million to Democratic campaigns, including Hillary Clinton's 2000 Senate campaign, and she also gave $450,000 to Bill Clinton's Presidential Library.

Bill Clinton Alleged Rape Scene Witness: 'Her Mouth Was All Swollen Up... Pantyhose Ripped'.  In her first extensive interview in over a decade, the nurse who found Juanita Broaddrick in her hotel room immediately after Bill Clinton allegedly raped Broaddrick recounted what she says she witnessed in that room 38 years ago.  "She was crying," recalled Norma Rogers, a nurse who worked for Broaddrick, who at the time was a nursing home administrator volunteering for then-Arkansas Attorney General Bill Clinton's 1978 gubernatorial bid.

That Time The Clintons Lied About Bill's Mistress And Then Let A Mentally Disabled Man Be Executed To Distract Us.  One of the most irritating aspects of the 2016 presidential election — and God knows there are so many to choose from — is this moral superiority Democrats display over the GOP's unfortunate nomination of Donald Trump.  As if choosing one of the most mendacious and corrupt people in American politics makes them exemplars of responsible governance.  Younger voters who weren't around in the 1990s may not be fully aware of the range and depth of the Clintons' duplicitous behavior.  We're getting a little taste of it now, but it's worth remembering that these are people who used the execution of a man with a partial lobotomy to divert attention away from Bill's lying about an extramarital affair.

How Hillary Clinton helped create what she later called the 'vast right-wing conspiracy'.  The epic battles between the Clintons and their tormentors on the right have shaped American politics for nearly a quarter-century.  But there was a moment early on when the toxic course of that history might have been changed, had it not been for Hillary Clinton's impulses toward secrecy.  It came one weekend near the end of Bill Clinton's first year as president, and it pitted the first lady against her husband's advisers.

Bill Clinton bombed Saddam to distract from the Monica Lewinsky scandal — what Huma Abedin's Muslim journal claimed about her boss's husband.  An article in the Muslim journal where Huma Abedin was assistant editor claimed Bill Clinton bombed Saddam Hussein to deflect from his Monica Lewinsky affair.  The claim made made in an article published in the Journal of Muslim Minority Affairs, where Abedin was a member of the editorial board — the group of people who decide what is published in the academic journal.  It is the latest bombshell to emerge from the archives of the journal, whose editor-in-chief is Abedin's mother, Saleha Mahmood Abedin, an academic in Saudi Arabia.  Abedin, who is not an academic, has been Hillary Clinton's closest aide since spending time as an intern at the White House, at exactly the time the Monica Lewinsky scandal was unfolding.

When the Clintons bombed Sudan to avoid bad press.  Indeed, on August 20, 1998, the day Lewinsky testified before a grand jury, Clinton had a chemical plant in Sudan bombed.  Guess which event led the news.

Anti-Hillary Dems.  Clinton has other advantages that have largely escaped the media's focus.  She is blanketed by scandals involving her emails, the Clinton Foundation, her chronic lying, and her husband's years of womanizing.  And that's not the full list.  Yet Democrats tolerate all of it without complaint, handwringing, or second thoughts.  In polls, 90 percent or more of Democratic voters back her.  This represents a degree of party unity that Donald Trump can only dream about.

Karma for the Clintons at Last?  I've watched closely through the years the Clintons' uncanny agility at hurdling real scandals and coming out almost unscathed.  Yes, Bill Clinton was impeached, but what a dud that turned out to be, with Clinton rising to the figure of beloved statesman among Democrats and his accusers being painted as petty partisans.  There has been no justice, and they have made off like bandits ever since.  One might argue that it's unfair to impute Bill Clinton's misdeeds to his wife, but but it's not a matter of imputation.  Hillary Clinton has been integrally involved every step of the way — from enabler to enforcer to joint participant.  Don't ever forget her complicity, such as her leading role in destroying the train of women who dared to blow the whistle on him.

Hollywood rewrites Lewinsky affair.  Hillary Clinton has a big problem called Monica Lewinsky, who is a bigger problem for Hillary than her husband.  Many Americans did not want a philanderer as president, but many more do not want a cuckold as president because that is a sign of weakness.

Embarrassing: WashPost Writes Clinton 'Allegedly Cheated on His Wife'.  Sunday's Washington Post Magazine has two cover stories, one for Bill Clinton and one (if you turn it upside down on the other side) for Melania Trump.  As expected, Bill Clinton is going to get a gushier treatment.  Post writer Neely Tucker is so tender to the president that he mangles a fact, and the copy editors (also tender hearts) allowed it.  "Fact Checker" Glenn Kessler will not be assigned to this story.  Tucker wrote, "He allegedly cheated on his wife, repeatedly, even in the Oval Office, and with a young woman who wasn't that much older than their daughter."

Juanita Broaddrick:  Clinton Lawyer 'Spewed' At Me During Meeting With Ken Starr.  Before Juanita Broaddrick alleged on national television that President Bill Clinton raped her in 1978, she told Ken Starr and Clinton White House attorneys, and the reaction from one Clinton lawyer frightened Broaddrick.  Broaddrick, a former nursing home administrator, initially came forward publicly with her then 21-year-old story in 1999 to "NBC Dateline's" Lisa Meyer.  At the time, Clinton was finishing up his second term in the White House.  The Daily Caller spoke with Broaddrick in an extensive phone interview Wednesday [8/17/2016] about how she came forward and the events that followed.

Clinton Sexual Assault Accusers Paula Jones, Kathleen Willey Unite Against NBC's Andrea Mitchell.  Kathleen Willey and Paula Jones, both of whom have accused Bill Clinton of sexual assault, are standing up for Clinton rape accuser Juanita Broaddrick.  Willey and Jones are demanding that NBC News Anchor Andrea Mitchell issue a public apology for baselessly calling Broaddrick "discredited" during a segment that aired May 19 on the highly-rated Today Show.  Following a letter from Broaddrick's attorney demanding a retraction, NBC deleted the "discredited" referenced from the Internet version of Mitchell's report.  But NBC has not fulfilled Broaddrick's request, which she says was communicated in the letter, for an apology from Mitchell on the Today Show, as well as an acknowledgement on the show and on NBC's website that there is no information indicating that Broaddrick's story is untrue.

Feminist Magazine:  Bill Clinton Isn't Necessarily A Bad Guy If He Raped Juanita Broaddrick.  An online feminist magazine recently featured an article that excused former President Bill Clinton's alleged rape of Juanita Broaddrick.  A Wonkette article titled "Let's Talk About Juanita Broaddrick" claimed that even if Clinton had raped Broaddrick in 1978 — he was running for Arkansas governor at the time — it does not necessarily mean he's "an evil man."  "To sum up, I think Bill Clinton could very well have raped Juanita Broaddrick; that it doesn't make him an evil man, or irredeemable (I'm Catholic; we're all forgiven, if we're sorry, and Broaddrick says Bill Clinton personally called her up to apologize).  It doesn't even necessarily make him a bad feminist — you know, later, once he stops doing that," the article claimed.

Tim Kaine Once Said Cheating Politicians Should Resign — Including Bill Clinton.  Bill Clinton should have resigned over the Monica Lewinsky scandal — at least, that's a view Tim Kaine once held.  Kaine's remark — reported 14 years ago in the Richmond Times-Dispatch in the aftermath of a state-level sex scandal — hasn't drawn any attention thus far in the 2016 presidential cycle.  But it suggests Hillary Clinton's running mate at one point harbored reservations about the integrity of the man poised to become the country's first first gentleman.  Kaine commented on the Lewinsky scandal in 2002, when allegations of sexual harassment had rocked the Virginia House of Delegates.

How has Hillary Clinton lied to us?  Let me count the ways.  A letter published in response to my last column "Hate Clinton and Trump?  Look in the mirror" asked for "some evidence, or at least an explanation of ... Hillary's character flaws in the early 1990s."  Of course.  Let's start in 1998, when Hillary attributed the Lewinsky affair and other Clinton scandals to a "vast right-wing conspiracy."  In fact, her husband had been having an affair with the 22-year-old White House intern whom Hillary had called a "narcissistic loony toon."  Indeed, the presidential candidate who brags that she has spent her lifetime fighting for equality cut her political teeth destroying the powerless young women ("bimbo eruptions" in Clintonspeak) who claimed that Bill had slept with or forced himself upon them.  They included Juanita Broaddrick, Connie Hamzy, Kathleen Willey and Gennifer Flowers, whom the Clintons memorably called a liar in a "60 Minutes" interview that saved his 1992 campaign.  Don't forget Paula Jones, to whom Bill ultimately paid $850,000 to drop her sexual harassment lawsuit.

On Rape, Clinton Campaign Deletes 'You Have The Right to Be Believed' From Website.  Hillary Clinton's presidential campaign deleted her comment on the campaign website assuring rape victims that they deserved to be believed.  "I want to send a message to every survivor of sexual assault:  Don't let anyone silence your voice.  You have the right to be heard.  You have the right to be believed, and we're with you," Clinton said in September 2015.  That quote was featured on the campaign website, according to Reddit user "goonsack" but the line "you have the right to be believed" has since been deleted.

The Most Dangerous Candidate.  There is no darker stain on Clinton's record than Libya.  The brutal regime change that led to chaos in Iraq was repeated in Libya, except the death by sodomy of Muammar Gaddafi was more grisly than Saddam Hussein's comparatively dignified hanging.  She was the prime proponent within the Obama administration of the Libyan fiasco, remembering everything but learning nothing from Iraq.  Donald Trump's campaign would be well advised to show Clinton's infamous, "We came, we saw, he died...cackle" video over and over, juxtaposed with scenes of the chaos that has engulfed Libya, where three rival "governments" contest for control of the country.  And let's not forget Benghazi.

Child rape victim comes forward for the first time in 40 years to call Hillary Clinton a 'liar' who defended her rapist by smearing her.  Kathy Shelton was just 12 years old when a 41-year-old drifter raped her on the side of a desolate Arkansas road in 1975.  Now, four decades later, she has agreed to be named and pictured for the first time in this Daily Mail Online exclusive because she is furious that her rapist's defense attorney — Hillary Clinton — has been portraying herself as a lifelong advocate of women and girls on the campaign trail.

12 reasons Hillary's a crook.  [#9] Domestic abuse charges have haunted Clinton since the 1990s.  At least three books written by reputable authors with access to White House staff include frightening accounts of Clinton physically abusing her husband, former President Bill Clinton, during his time in office.  The stories include black eyes, thrown books and ashtrays and slaps across the face.  Because of a double standard when women are the accused abusers, Hillary Clinton has largely escaped scrutiny on these allegations.  [#6] A champion for women?  Not exactly.  Paula Jones, who reached an $850,000 out-of-court settlement with former President Bill Clinton over sexual harassment claims, said she believed Hillary was aware of the harassment and did nothing.  Hillary Clinton has failed to stand up for her husband's many victims, instead dismissing them as part of a "vast right-wing conspiracy."  To this day, despite overwhelming evidence and even admissions in the case of the Monica Lewinsky scandal, she refuses to admit her husband has abused women.

Cleveland, cockroaches and the Clintons.  [Scroll down]  The litany of Hillary's near death experiences is impressive:  Travelgate, Cattlefuturegate, Whitewater, Rose Law Firm billing records, Hillarycare, Vince Foster, Monica Lewinsky, Norman Hsu, bimbo eruptions, sniper fire scandal, Benghazi, Emailgate, and the Clinton Foundation — among others.

Exclusive: Pictured together, Hillary Clinton, her husband and the Chinese billionaire accused of being front for Communist bid to influence election.  This is Hillary and Bill Clinton — pictured with a Chinese billionaire accused of being the front for his country's attempt to manipulate an American election.  The couple were pictured with Ng Lap Seng at a Democratic function before he became embroiled in an investigation into illegal campaign donations to the 1996 election.  Now the scandal is threatening to return to haunt the Clinton — as Ng faces being questioned in font of Congress, something he managed to evade by fleeing the country in the late 1990s.

Al Qaeda Financier Frequented the Clinton White House.  Islamists pose a particular security risk to our U.S. government.  They want to slowly introduce Sharia law into our system of government and take away our most cherished freedoms. [...] Some Islamists, even after empowering radical Islam in the policy arena, will go so far as to support terrorist groups like Hamas (more often done privately) or receive funding from such groups.  Islamists operate so effectively in U.S. politics because of politicians that enable them.  Bill and Hillary Clinton are those type of politicians — having a political past mired with Islamist ties.  One of those Islamists happens to be Abdurahman Alamoudi, a man sentenced to twenty-three years in prison because of "his activities in the United States and abroad with nations and organizations that have ties to terrorism[.]"  Alamoudi has been involved in a number of malicious activities such as a "Libyan intelligence/al-Qaeda assassination plot to kill the Saudi crown prince" and being "an Al-Qaeda fundraiser who had operated inside the United States."  So, what's his connection with the Clintons?

The Scandals Bill Clinton Forgot to Mention Last Night.  During his primetime address, former President Bill Clinton looked back on his life with Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton, highlighting moments that he judged significant.  Yet Clinton's speech was subject to withering criticism from the left, with MSNBC's Rachel Maddow calling Clinton's speech "shocking and weird."  Significantly, as the former President went through the years, reporters started noticing significant moments were curiously missing.  People following along with the speech on Twitter, saw a much more accurate reflection of Bill and Hillary Clinton's political careers, filled with political scandals.

Another '90s scandal returns to haunt the Clintons.  A Chinese billionaire at the center of a 20-year-old Clinton foreign donor scandal is being called in to answer questions from Congress about his role in the influence-buying scheme, in a move that could revive yet another Clinton controversy from the 1990s.  The House Oversight Committee told Daily Mail Online that it will seek an interview with Ng Lap Seng, 68, who evaded congressional investigators for years.  He has now re-appeared in the United States and is being held in New York on unrelated bribery charges.  One campaign group is even suggesting that Congress grant him immunity from the charges in return for testifying.

America's second chance to prove Clintons aren't above the law.  Seventeen years after the United States Senate rejected two articles of impeachment against President Bill Clinton, America is getting a mulligan.  It's getting another chance to prove we really are a nation of laws, that rich and poor, powerful and weak — and the Clintons — stand equal before a blindfolded Justice.  Because this second test comes from Hillary Clinton, and also involves probable criminal actions, it is imperative that we get it right this time.  The nation is still paying a big price for getting it wrong in 1999.

Vince Foster, Cattle Futures, Whitewater....  When Bill Clinton got into office, in 1993, he failed to pass a stimulus plan, but he still birthed an industry that created thousands of jobs, all centered on investigating Bill and Hillary Clinton.  Scarcely a year went by that didn't introduce a new scandal start-up:  Travelgate, Fostergate, Troopergate, Whitewatergate, Filegate, Chinagate, Commercegate, and Pardongate, among others. [...] If pursuing the Clintons was a living, it came at a price to the pursuer, and that tended to be squandered years or madness.  Investigators persuaded themselves that the crucial piece of evidence was just one more subpoena or interview away, and yet that evidence never came.

The truth (and lies) behind why Hillary is unfit to be president.  With the mainstream media focused on Donald Trump's political antics, they have mostly ignored the question of whether Hillary Clinton is ethically fit to be president.  Not only is Clinton a documented liar, but she could make history as the first major party candidate to face a federal criminal prosecution.  Even without a prosecution, the damage that has been done to her public image may be beyond repair.  Whitewater.  Travelgate.  Chinagate.  Monica Lewinsky.  Gennifer Flowers.  The Clinton Foundation.  Benghazi.  These are just a few of the scandals that have made the Clinton name synonymous with deceit and duplicity.  But it is her use of a private email server and email account that have permanently branded Hillary Clinton as a liar.

From Whitewater to Benghazi: A Clinton-Scandal Primer.  The emails have become a classic Clinton scandal.  Her use of a private email account became known during the course of the Benghazi investigation.  Thus far, the investigations have found no wrongdoing on her part with respect to the 2012 attacks themselves, but Clinton's private-email use and concerns about whether she sent classified information have become huge stories unto themselves.  This is a pattern with the Clinton family, which has been in the public spotlight since Bill Clinton's first run for office, in 1974:  Something that appears potentially scandalous on its face turns out to be innocuous, but an investigation into it reveals different questionable behavior.  The canonical case is Whitewater, a failed real-estate investment Bill and Hillary Clinton made in 1978.  While no inquiry ever produced evidence of wrongdoing, investigations ultimately led to President Clinton's impeachment for perjury and obstruction of justice.

The first scandal that made us question the Clintons' ethics.  Bill was attorney general of Arkansas at the time, and he was offered a very favorable land deal in a development called Saltillo Heights, where Jim McDougal was planning to build houses.  Saltillo Heights was at the time — and still is — in the middle of nowhere — about 35 miles north of Little Rock.  Clinton, according to reporting I did back then, was believed to have made an $8,600 profit in a year after putting down just $400 in cash.  This was one of the deals that was looked into back then by Special Prosecutor Ken Starr.  McDougal died in 1998, so nobody knows what he was expecting in return from the Clintons.

The Editor says...
Mr. McDougal allegedly died of a heart attack at the age of 57, while in prison — in solitary confinement.  Nothing suspicious there, right?

Lest We Forget:  Chinagate, The Worst Scandal in U.S. Presidential History.  The "Chinagate" fundraising scandal plagued the 1996 Bill Clinton-Al Gore campaign and Hillary was very much involved.  Chinagate aka Commercegate is the most serious scandal in U.S. history.  It involves the transfer of America's most sensitive technology, including but not limited to nuclear missile and satellite technology, apparently in exchange for millions of dollars in contributions to the 1996 Clinton-Gore re-election effort and the Democratic National Committee.

The Ghosts of Old Sex Scandals.  First, multiple women have accused Clinton of things ranging from sexual misconduct to rape.  Paula Jones famously brought a sexual harassment case against Clinton.  The case was dismissed, but on appeal, faced with the prospect of having to testify under oath, Clinton settled the case out of court.  Clinton has maintained that he had inappropriate sexual relationships with only two women:  Gennifer Flowers, a model and actress, and Monica Lewinsky, a White House intern.

Having A Pair.  [Scroll down]  Haunting her every strident promise of a new freebie began with HillaryCare (remember?).  Then, there are the lingering odors from Whitewater, Filegate, Travelgate, the Lincoln Bedroom sales, and the Rich pardon during her First Lady years (sorry if I missed one of your favorites).  For her years as US Senator from New York, it's hard to find anything she did to improve or uplift the lives of anyone except the Clintons.  As Secretary of State, had she negotiated a Putin stand down from his imperial ambitions, had she dislodged Kaddafi from Libya and levered an anti-jihadist regime in its place, had she somehow neutralized the North Korean bully, or had she sponsored a peace settlement between the Palestinian National Authority and Israel, there'd be something to talk about.  None of those historic achievements occurred.

Hillary has been burying emails since she was First Lady.  As first lady, Hillary was embroiled in another scheme to bury sensitive White House e-mails, known internally as "Project X."  In 1999, as investigators looked into Whitewater, Travelgate, Filegate and other scandals involving the then-first lady, it was discovered that more than 1 million subpoenaed e-mails were mysteriously "lost" due to a "glitch" in a West Wing computer server.  The massive hole in White House archives covered a critical two-year period — 1996 to 1998 — when Republicans and special prosecutor Ken Starr were subpoenaing White House e-mails.

It Took 20 Years for Hillary Clinton to Say She Tried to Be Relieved From Rape Case.  A CNN panel discussing Hillary Clinton's 1975 defense of a child rapist concluded that she worked the case only because she was forced to, even though it took her umore [sic] than 20 years to make that argument.  In Clinton's first recorded commentary on the case, she said she took the case as a favor for a local prosecutor.  In taped conversations that took place in the early 1980s, Clinton told reporter Roy Reed that she was approached by a prosecutor who told her the rapist wanted to be defended by a female lawyer.  "A prosecutor called me years ago, said that he had a guy who was accused of rape and the guy wanted a woman lawyer — would I do it as a favor to him?" said Clinton in audio first released by the Washington Free Beacon in 2014.

Rap Sheet:  The Women Who Claim to Be Victims of Bill and Hillary Clinton.  Despite a laundry list of extremely disturbing allegations involving everything from rape to groping to harassment to character assassination, the DC Media has not only protected white Democrat Bill Clinton, in a number of cases, the media has joined the campaign to destroy these women. [...] Nevertheless, Bill Clinton is the man the DC Media wants as America's very first First Gentleman, and other than Donald Trump, no one in the Republican Party has the stomach to make this the issue it deserves to be.

Exclusive: Kathleen Willey:  Have You Been Raped, Sexually Assaulted By Bill Clinton?  Kathleen Willey, one of the women who famously accused Bill Clinton of sexual assault, used a radio interview on Sunday to call on other female victims of Bill Clinton to contact her and consider going public.  Stated Willey:  "As we get closer to the election, I would like to ask once again if there are any women out there who have been assaulted, sexually harassed, raped by Bill Clinton to please, please find the courage to write to me and tell me about it."

EXCLUSIVE — Lucianne Goldberg: 'I Believed Every One Of These Women'.  Lucianne Goldberg, one of the pivotal figures in the Monica Lewinsky affair that rocked Bill Clinton's second term in office, predicts this presidential election season will be a "highly sexed" campaign due to the reemergence of Clinton's sex accusers.  Goldberg, a literary agent at the time of the Lewinsky affair, was in touch with Clinton's publicly known accusers and alleged mistresses.  Regarding those accusers, Goldberg asserted, "I believed every one of these women. ... They were telling you the truth."

Hillary's Electoral 'Luck'.  Consider Hillary's "shrewd" investments as a virtual novice in the futures market.  When Hillary entered the cattle futures market as the wife of the man who was set to become governor of Arkansas, she had virtually no experience or background in this very competitive and complex business.  She was "lucky," wildly, beyond any reasonable probability analysis.  How lucky?  She turned an initial investment of $1,000 into a whopping $100,000 in less than one year.  The only reasonable explanation is that she had illegal help from folks who gave her "advice" and who were also major political contributors to the Clintons. Of course, wildly improbable luck is not evidence of crime, and so when evidence of this profoundly suspicious series of transactions came to public light during Bill's first term as president, nothing happened.  The whole history of the Clintons is one of incredible "luck," which stinks of something other than just good fortune.

13 Incompetent Failures in the Obama Administration.  [Hillary] Clinton's scandals go far back before the Obama administration.  She learned how to hide the truth from the public from Richard Nixon.  She and her husband profited from his political position, over and over again.  First, there was the Whitewater scandal (now being rewritten by the media).  More recently, the Clintons made bank from a uranium deal with Russia, which made a Russian company one of the world's largest uranium producers.  Then there's the Clinton speeches to wealthy corporations, the transcripts of which Hillary refuses to release to the public.

ABC, CBS Say Bill Clinton Rape Claims Are 'Old and Discredited'.  On Wednesday's [5/18/2016] edition of Hannity, Donald Trump dropped the big one on the Hillary Clinton campaign, openly accusing former President Bill Clinton of Rape.  Trump's new line of attack has been telegraphed for months.  And the liberal media reacted in the most predictable way, by claiming it has no basis in fact.  "The rape accusation is decades-old and discredited," ABC's Tom Llamas stated, misleading the audience during Thursday's World News Tonight.  As a refresher of one of the incidents, Juanita Broaddrick accuses Bill Clinton of assaulting her in her hotel room in Little Rock, Arkansas.  During an attempt to kiss her Broaddrick claims Clinton bit down hard on her top lip, causing it swell.  According to Broaddrick he forced her down to the bed and assaulted her.  And just before he left, Broaddrick says he told her, "You better put some ice on that," referring to her swollen lip.  Llamas' reporting didn't stop there.  He praised the way Hillary Clinton has been responding to Trump's attacks.

Juanita Broaddrick rejects MSNBC claim that Clinton rape story was 'discredited'.  A woman who claims Bill Clinton raped her is furious that MSNBC's Andrea Mitchell referred to the charge as "discredited."  "I look forward to [Andrea's] explanation exactly how I was discredited.  Should be interesting," former Arkansas nursing home administrator Juanita Broaddrick said Thursday [5/19/2016] on Twitter.  "[Andrea] Mitchell is Clinton lapdog, angry I exposed her bias to Clinton's."  Broaddrick maintains Clinton raped her in a hotel room in 1978.  Her story didn't surface until the final weeks of the 1992 presidential election, where the country's leading newsrooms, including the New York Times and the Los Angeles Times, ignored it.

Hillary and Her Posse Comitatus.  Donald Trump's counterattack upon Hillary Clinton's exploitation of the sex card has been a long time coming.  But apparently there is today an audience for it.  It is made up of millennial women who knew nothing about Hillary's employment of private investigators to surveil Bill's quarry and otherwise intimidate women who had been the target of his libidinous impulses.  Apparently today women are not as tolerant as they were in years past.

The Hillary Clinton/David Brock File.  Many readers have forgotten David's work and many more were not even born when the Clintons began their journey to the top of Democratic politics.  So as a public service The American Spectator has reached back into its ample archives to bring our readers' David's findings from the 1990s, and occasionally we shall even publish personal memoranda that David wrote to startled interns on our staff and were long ago forgotten by him.  This material will appear regularly here and may be used by the Clintons' present political opponents free of charge.  We expect that the FBI already has this material, but if our early work is helpful to them in their investigations we are glad to oblige.

6 Little Known Horrible Facts About Hillary Clinton.  [#2] Hillary Clinton Filmed Having Imaginary Conversations[.] As crazy and over the top that this story is, it definitely belongs on the list of 6 little known horrible facts about Hillary Clinton.  One of the lesser-known scandals that rocked the White House was call Wackygate, and for good reason.  The bizarre story unfolds with Hillary as First Lady, and having private conversations with her hero Eleanor Roosevelt.  On the surface this doesn't appear to really be that crazy at all, unless you know that Eleanor Roosevelt passed away about thirty years before the Clinton's [sic] moved into the White House.  Even though Roosevelt had passed away, Hillary still wanted to communicate with the former First Lady, and would conduct regular sessions to speak with her at length.

Clintons fiercely suppressing movie putting them in bad light.  Hillary Clinton's presidential aspirations may be threatened by a possible indictment over her email server, the loss of American lives in Benghazi and other scandals.  But the Clintons still wield enough power to suppress a movie that reflects poorly on her husband's administration 10 years after the only time it was allowed to be seen.  "The Path to 9/11" was written by Cyrus Nowrasteh, who confirmed to WND this week that the Clintons ordered the five-hour documdrama to be quashed after it drew a stunning 28 million viewers when it was aired by ABC amid controversy. [...] "The Path to 9/11" dramatizes the events leading to the 9/11 terror attacks, beginning with the 1993 World Trade Center bombing.  It derived many of its scenes from the 9/11 Commission Report.  However, it was "never seen again," Nowrasteh said.

The Trashing of Bill's Accusers: What Did Hillary Do — and Why Did She Do It?  Hillary Clinton has never been asked whether she verbally intimidated alleged rape survivor Juanita Broaddrick.  Nor has Clinton been asked whether she spearheaded the so-called "nuts and sluts" strategy to silence and intimidate women who alleged affairs with or sexual abuse by Bill Clinton.  The books "Hell to Pay" by Barbara Olson and "No One Left to Lie To" by Christopher Hitchens depict Hillary Clinton as the puppet master behind the hiring of lawyers and private detectives to dig up dirt on her husband's accusers.  Bolstering the credibility of Hitchens' book is a foreword written by respected historian Douglas Brinkley, a frequent guest on CNN, MSNBC and other networks.  Is this true?

Paula Jones: The Truth About Bill's Women Would 'Destroy' Hillary's Political Career.  The "truth" about Bill Clinton's affairs and alleged affairs would "destroy" Hillary Clinton's political career, declares Paula Jones, the former Arkansas state employee who sued President Clinton for sexual harassment.  Jones made the statements in an interview with Breitbart senior investigative reporter and Jerusalem bureau chief Aaron Klein.  The interview aired on Tuesday [3/8/2016] exclusively on Breitbart News Daily, the radio program hosted by Breitbart News Executive Chairman Stephen K.

Hillary Clinton is an old-hand when it comes to stealing documents.  On a couple of occasions during this election season, I've written in detail about Hillary Clinton and the Whitewater/Castle Grande scandal.  Although the events in question took place 25 years (or so) ago, they are relevant today because at the heart of that scandal, insofar as Hillary is concerned, was the theft and/or wrongful destruction of documents.  Such conduct is also a central issue in Hillary's current email scandal, although this matter also raises concerns that she compromised national security.  Now, the invaluable Judicial Watch has obtained and published an April 1998 memo by the Office of Independent Counsel, called "HRC Order of Proof."  It includes the names of 121 witnesses and a discussion of the evidence to be used at trial against the Whitewater/Castle Grande conspirators.  The memo thus constitutes a road map to the Independent Counsel's criminal case.

Document Theft and Destruction Nothing New for Hillary Clinton.  In the 1990s, the documents Clinton stole and/or caused to be destroyed established her role as the attorney for participants in a fraudulent scheme called Castle Grande.  Clinton, working with Webster Hubbell and Vince Foster, stole hard copies of the billing records of the Rose law firm where they were partners.  They erased the electronic version of these records.  One set of these documents was later found in the White House, just outside Hillary's private office, by an employee.  Another set was found in Foster's attic by his widow, some years after he committed suicide.  Clinton's time sheets (handwritten, as was the practice back in the day) were never found.

Why Whitewater Matters: Newly Released Documents Show A Pattern Of Clinton Deception.  Aficionados of complex financial crime will want a look at a new, never-before-seen document obtained by Judicial Watch.  Last month, Judicial Watch released 246 pages of previously undisclosed Office of Independent Counsel (OIC) internal memos on criminal charges against Hillary Clinton in the Whitewater investigation.  On February 9, this reporter provided more details on the case, based on a newly obtained confidential document.  The document included a description of the case against Mrs. Clinton "in the legal terms of an indictment."

Forget Hillary — Does America really need Bill Clinton back in the White House?  [Scroll down]  Thanks to a worshipful mainstream media and the willful blindness of his fans, the same guy who lied under oath about harassing vulnerable women morphed into a lovable rogue. [...] Except the times have changed.  What 20 years ago could be dismissed as a tacky yet endearing quirk — Oh, that's just Bill being Bill! — is now unforgiveable.  The kids today do not see the commander-in-chief's cavorting with an awestruck intern as merely a personal foible, but as an epic breach of political correctness.  Bill Clinton today is, to young people who never saw his name on a ballot, less a sexy scoundrel than a sexist villain.  The utter wipeout among young people Hillary suffered in New Hampshire to Sanders — who no one will ever confuse with a player — is the result.

A hell of a place.  According to nursing home proprietor Juanita Broaddrick, in 1978, Bill Clinton had raped her in a hotel room in Little Rock in the course of a state conference; and according to her, on May 8, 1991, Paula Jones, a state employee, had been escorted to the hotel room in Little Rock of Gov. Clinton, who then dropped his pants and told her to "kiss it."  (In 1998, Kathleen Willey, a volunteer, would say she had been groped and assaulted by President Clinton in the White House itself.)  Broaddrick says she believes Hillary knew what had happened, and we know that in Arkansas Hillary and Bill's aide Betsey Wright was in charge of the suppression of "bimbo eruptions," i.e., the harassment of Bill's flames and/or victims who might have thought about bringing complaints.

Hillary's financial history is a clear trap for Democrats.  In the late 1990s, I spent a lot of time looking into Bill and Hill's antics and I was convinced by sources working with the Whitewater investigation that the two were the Bonnie Parker and Clyde Barrow of Arkansas politics — minus the guns, of course.  There wasn't a financial scam they would not run in their home state or a coverup that was beneath them.  They gravitated toward shady real estate deals, although too-good-to-be-true commodities transactions were also a specialty.  Before I continue, let me offer up a bit of full disclosure:  I voted for Bill Clinton in 1992.

Madeline Albright Hurts Clinton's Campaign — but Not for the Reason You Think.  Enlisting the 78-year-old [Madeleine Albright] to chase millennials may seem far-fetched, but it's a gift to voters and to the GOP.  Just as Hillary's claims of advocacy for women encouraged criticism of her husband's sexual misadventures, trotting out Bill Clinton's former Secretary of State allows us to revisit how her husband's presidency all but ignored the brewing Islamic jihad against the U.S.  Hillary Clinton offers her husband's time in office as a halcyon time of peace and prosperity.  The truth is that Bill Clinton, like President Obama, made a cataclysmic choice early on that has cost this country untold amounts of blood and treasure.  That choice was to ignore the numerous attacks on Americans by Islamic radicals, a decision which served to embolden the jihadists behind 9/11.  Like President Obama, Bill Clinton, distracted by endless scandals, led from behind.

The Editor says...
Examples of Islamic attacks ignored (or minimized or covered up) by Bill Clinton include the shooting down on TWA 800, the Oklahoma City bombing, and the 1993 World Trade Center bombing.

Woman who accused Bill Clinton of assault to campaign against Hillary presidential run.  One of the women who has accused former U.S. President Bill Clinton of sexual assault says she has agreed to work for an anti-Clinton political group being formed by a former advisor to Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump.  Kathleen Willey, a former White House volunteer who says Bill Clinton groped her in an Oval Office hallway in 1993 when she came to him tearfully seeking a paid job, said she had agreed to become a paid national spokeswoman for a group being created by Roger Stone.

Hillary Clinton's Abuse of Classified Info Goes Back Decades.  [Scroll down]  The only problem with this story is that Hillary Clinton also made up all sorts of lies to bolster her credentials, including the infamous airport "under fire" lie and the claim that she brought peace to Northern Ireland.  But in this case it's entirely plausible that she had access to information that she wasn't supposed to have in a White House where information was routinely being abused anyway.  And that would mean that Hillary Clinton has a history of abusing classified information going back decades.

Feds fight disclosure of Hillary Clinton Whitewater indictment drafts.  The National Archives is fighting a lawsuit trying to force disclosure of several draft indictments of Hillary Clinton prepared by a Whitewater prosecutor in the 1990s.  In a brief filed late Tuesday, Justice Department lawyers and the Archives argue that disclosure of the draft indictments would lead to an unwarranted invasion of Clinton's privacy and violate a court rule protecting grand jury secrecy.  "Despite the role that Mrs. Clinton occupied as the First Lady during President Clinton's administration, Mrs. Clinton maintains a strong privacy interest in not having information about her from the files of the Independent Counsel disclosed," wrote Martha Wagner Murphy, chief of the Archives "special access" branch that stores records of former independent counsels.  "As an uncharged person, Hillary Rodham Clinton retains a significant interest in her personal privacy despite any status as a public figure."

Why a 37-Year Old Clinton Financial Scandal Is Still Relevant.  Under the guidance of an attorney representing Tyson Foods, Hillary Clinton made a $98,540 profit from a $1,000 initial investment in less than one year trading commodity futures.  While $98,540 may not seem like much money relative to the Clinton family's wealth today, it exceeded Bill and Hillary's combined annual income at the time.  When this story was revealed in the spring of 1994, Hillary Clinton's press secretary suggested that the enormous profit was the result of the First Lady's own research — but the Tyson-linked attorney, James Blair, admitted that he advised Clinton when to buy and sell the futures.  Further, there was no evidence that Clinton had previously traded in commodity futures or knew much about the market.

Hillary escaped Whitewater indictment, compared to 'Mafia kingpin'.  Prosecutors looking into the Clinton-era Whitewater scandal considered indicting then-first lady Hillary Rodham Clinton, tied closely to four charged in the affair, but decided in 1998 not to after an internal debate rated a possible conviction at just 10 percent.  Judicial Watch released documents provided by the National dArchives [sic] that showed the "statements of the case" against Clinton and Webster Hubbell, her former Rose Law Firm partner and former Associate Attorney General in the Clinton Justice Department.

Judicial Watch Releases Independent Counsel Memo Laying Out Criminal Case against Hillary Clinton in Whitewater Land Scandal.  Judicial Watch today [1/28/2016] released 246 pages of previously undisclosed Office of Independent Counsel (OIC) internal memos revealing extensive details about the investigation of Hillary Rodham Clinton for possible criminal charges involving her activities in the Whitewater/Castle Grande fraudulent land transaction scandal.  The memos are "statements of the case" against Hillary Clinton and Webster Lee "Webb" Hubbell, Hillary Clinton's former law partner and former Associate Attorney General in the Clinton Justice Department.  Ultimately, the memos show that prosecutors declined to prosecute Clinton because of the difficulty of persuading a jury to convict a public figure as widely known as Clinton.

Clinton pardon records offer fuel for Hillary's foes.  Just as Hillary Clinton braces for yet another release of her much-discussed State Department emails, the Clinton Library this week released the largest set of records ever — more than 43,000 pages — detailing her husband's use of his executive clemency powers while he was president.  The long-secret records include new information on some of the late-term pardons and commutations that created controversy, including a pair of pardons that foilowed intervention of one of Hillary Clinton's brothers.

Bill Clinton's 'Roots in Politics' Were Formed Buying Votes in Arkansas.  Bill Clinton said that his "roots in politics" were formed trying to buy votes in Arkansas during his first run for Congress, according to the audio diary kept by his friend and biographer Taylor Branch.  Clinton discussed buying votes with Branch in July 1997 after he returned from the funeral of Hilary Jones, a politically-connected Arkansas man Clinton met during his unsuccessful campaign to unseat Republican John Hammerschmidt in 1974.

"The deal with the Clinton Devil is Over".  For nearly a quarter of a century, the Clintons have been politically bulletproof.  No charge, regardless of how salacious, illegal and true, seemed to stick.  When they detected incoming fire, they activated their tried-and-true protocol:  deny, stonewall, deflect and claim that the nation's business was too important — they were too important — to respond:  "I need to get back to work for the American people."  Exit left.  Get protection from the leftist mainstream media.  They were untouchable, having created a cult of personality rivaled (and surpassed) only by President Obama.  Until now.

How Hillary Clinton lost her feminist base (and her credibility).  It's a classic feminist argument:  Anyone who doesn't support a female Democrat must hate women.  That something else is at play may be just too hard to face.  But face it we must, for this year feminists have a real problem on their hands:  how to square their love of Hillary with the double standard she espouses regarding victims of sexual assault.

Juanita Broaddrick Still Haunts Hillary.  In the catalogue of accusations against Bill Clinton — a litany that includes names such as Paula Jones and Kathleen Willey — Broaddrick's stands out.  It remains not only the most credible accusation against Clinton and the most serious.  It is also the one about which the Clintons have said the least.  The entire record of the Clintons' response to Broaddrick's allegations amounts to one line, from President Clinton's lawyer David Kendall in 1999:  "Any allegation that the president assaulted Juanita Broaddrick more than 20 years ago is absolutely false."

Hillary's past meets the present.  [Scroll down]  Of course, by now a long line of victims has come forward to tell their stories about adventures with romantic Bill, and in so doing many have told of their fate at the hands of Hillary and her operatives.  For instance, Juanita Broaddrick says she was raped by Bill, Kathleen Willey says she was fondled by him within days of her husband's suicide, to say nothing of Monica Lewinsky.

Exclusive: Juanita Broaddrick Says Bill Clinton Called Her Repeatedly After Alleged Rape.  During a radio interview Sunday, Juanita Broaddrick revealed a shocking new detail about her history with Bill Clinton.  She says that within a few weeks after Clinton allegedly raped her, he started to call her repeatedly with the aim of meeting again.  "I was shocked to say the least that he would have the audacity to call me after what he did to me," Broaddrick said, speaking on "Aaron Klein Investigative Radio," the popular Sunday night radio program.

Linda Tripp reveals Bill Clinton had affairs with 'thousands of women' — including a Second White House staffer.  Linda Tripp, the one-time confidante of Lewinsky who secretly taped her phone conversations and turned them over to a federal prosecutor, said the former president had affairs with 'thousands' of women — and that the former first lady knew about them.  Tripp also said she went public about the Lewinsky-Clinton affair to save her life, as she was worried at the time that she was in danger.

The Editor says...
Hmmm...  Why do you suppose she feared for her life?

Exclusive — Linda Tripp: 'Bill Had Affairs with Thousands of Women'.  In a rare interview, Linda Tripp, a pivotal figure in the Monica Lewinsky scandal, revealed on Sunday it was common knowledge while she worked in the West Wing that Bill Clinton had affairs with "thousands of women."  Speaking on "Aaron Klein Investigative Radio," Tripp for the first time divulged that she personally knew another White House staffer aside from Lewinsky who was also having an affair with Clinton.  That unnamed staffer was mentioned by Tripp in various depositions but she has not spoken about it publicly.

NBC's Andrea Mitchell Scolds Bernie Sanders For Commenting About Bill Clinton's Bad Behavior.  At a campaign event last week, an audience member asked [Bernie] Sanders about Bill Clinton's numerous sex scandals, which include an affair with White House intern Monica Lewinsky.  Clinton has also been accused of sexual harassment and sexual assault.  Arkansas nursing home administrator Juanita Broaddrick accused Clinton of raping her in 1978, when he was attorney general.  "I was asked a question," Sanders repeated to [Andrea] Mitchell, but the reporter jumped in with what resembled a defense of the Clintons.  "You didn't have to answer it that way though.  Why did you?" she asked.

CNN's Begala, Bash Downplay Clinton Sex Scandals; 'Nobody Wants to Talk About' That.  After NBC's Democratic co-moderator Andrea Mitchell wanted to know from Bernie Sanders in Sunday's debate about whether or not he regretted bringing up Bill Clinton's sex scandals, the post-debate analysis on CNN saw panelists Dana Bash and Paul Begala (a former Clinton aide) less than pleased with the issue and did their best to downplay its significance in the 2016 race.

When Hillary wielded the hatchet for Bill.  Mark Paoletta, a distinguished lawyer who served in the Bush 41 White House Counsel's Office, shows how [David] Brock's honest reporting from 20 years ago confirms Donald Trump's criticism of Bill Clinton's numerous extramarital affairs and Hillary's role in keeping the women involved out of the spotlight.  As Mark shows, "Trump's charges eerily mirror those made by one of the Clintons' biggest defenders in politics today."  Brock describes how, during Bill Clinton's 1992 campaign, Hillary was heavily involved in covering up Bill's affairs and mistreatment of women.

Hillary the Benghazi Bimbo.  Hillary Clinton and her allies furiously and famously defended her husband's sexual predations by targeting the women Bill victimized with media campaigns designed to portray Bill's victims as lying, conniving bimbos. [...] Had these women come forth with their charges against a Republican presidential candidate, he would have been immediate toast in the mainstream media.  But Bill and Hillary were Democrats, so the media went along with the bimbo portrayals even though Bill ultimately paid Paula Jones $850,000 to settle her lawsuit, in the process perjuring himself and losing his law license.  And of course there was then the spectacle of Monica Lewinsky.

NBC Scrapped Story About Bill Clinton Rape Accuser Because She Didn't Have 'Anything New' To Say.  NBC News journalists — including veteran reporter Andrea Mitchell — conducted interviews last week with Juanita Broaddrick, the Arkansas woman who says Bill Clinton raped her in 1978, but decided not to go forward with a story, claiming that there was not "anything new" to report. [...] Broaddrick, a 73-year-old retired nursing home administrator, spoke out on Twitter last Wednesday after 17 years of silence about the alleged rape.

'Enabler' Hillary Clinton haunted by efforts to 'destroy' husband's accusers.  Running to be the first woman president, Democratic presidential hopeful Hillary Clinton has taken a stern stand on combating sexual harassment and assault — and has insisted that every accuser who comes forward has "the right to be believed."  But Mrs. Clinton took a very different approach herself 25 years ago as the wife of then-Gov. Bill Clinton, leading the effort to discredit women who came forward with their own stories of harassment or assault by her husband.

Bloomberg's Halperin: Bill Clinton Allegations Not Only 'Not Disproven, They Were Confirmed and Acknowledged'.  Monday [1/11/2016] on MSNBC's "Morning Joe," Bloomberg Politics Mark Halperin, a co-host of the show "With All Due Respect" said that allegations of sexual misconduct aimed at former President Bill Clinton were never "disproven," but instead were "confirmed."  Halperin pointed to a statement from his wife Hillary Clinton, a candidate for the Democratic presidential nomination, arguing accusers have a right to be heard until their accusations are disproven.  And that according to Halperin means those behind accusations aimed at Bill Clinton should be heard.

Stick a Fork in Hillary: She's Done.  The Clintons have managed to escape a long list of high crimes and misdemeanors on their road to becoming billionaires as "public servants".  Selling military missile technology to Red China in exchange for campaign donations.  Trading rights to nuclear weapons material to Russia for massive contributions to their personal and "Foundation" bank accounts.  Turning $1,000 into over $100,000 in less than a year "trading cattle futures".  Mr. Clinton having allegedly abused, raped or fondled more than a dozen women while his wife dealt with all of the various "bimbo eruptions" through intimidation and other means.  But when clear evidence of a felony emerges — with written evidence provided by Hillary Clinton herself — while an FBI investigation is ongoing, the piper must be paid.

Faux Feminists at NY Times Suddenly Think Bringing Up Sex Harassment 'Way Out of Line'.  Fascinating: The New York Times, an outlet that has respectfully pondered the idea of a flourishing "rape culture" in the United States, and which irresponsibly furthered false accusations against three Duke University lacrosse players accused of rape by a stripper in 2006, suddenly doesn't think sexual harassment is worth talking about.  Or at least not when the accused is Democratic "big dog" Bill Clinton, and the topic might risk his wife becoming president in 2016:  "Mr. Trump is way out of line bringing up Mr. Clinton's philandering."  After Donald Trump re-injected Clinton's sordid sexual past into the news stream, the paper responded on Friday [1/8/2016] with an oddly written, bottom-of-the-page editorial, "Donald Trump Drags Bill Clinton's Baggage Out."  They do not approve, and accuse Trump of trying to "tar" Hillary Clinton in "sexist fashion" to her husband's dark sexual past — even though Hillary herself tore down the reputations of her husband's accusers in order to save the couples' political skin.

It's a Bad Day for the Clintons When Vox Fairly Explains the Rape Allegation Against Bill.  I must admit, when I clicked this morning on Vox's "explainer" of Juanita Broaddrick's rape allegation against Bill Clinton, I expected a whitewash.  I was wrong.  Not only did Dylan Matthews do an excellent job laying out the story, he reminded me of a number of details I'd forgotten.  Her story is infuriating, painting a picture of casual, callous brutality.  Broaddrick, then a Clinton gubernatorial campaign volunteer, claims that Clinton asked to switch a planned meeting from a hotel lobby to her hotel room.  After a few minutes of small talk, Broaddrick says that Clinton began kissing her.  She resisted Clinton's advances, but he "pulled her back onto the bed and forcibly had sex with her."  During the alleged attack, he bit her lip.  When he saw that it was bruised and swollen, she claims he said, "You better get some ice on that."  Then he "put on his sunglasses and walked out the door."

Bombshell Claim: More Clinton Sexual Assault Victims Are About To Come Forward.  Since returning to the campaign trail as an advocate for Hillary, Bill Clinton has been harried by renewed interest in his past sexual misconduct as well as Hillary's alleged role in intimidating his victims into silence.  Roger Stone, author of the New York Times bestselling "The Clinton's War On Women", claims that he has personal knowledge of previously unknown victims who are preparing to come forward with accusations against the former president.  "I identified 24 women who've been assaulted by Bill Clinton," Stone said on The Sean Hannity Show.  "Now some of these women are still terrified.  Some of them have had IRS audits.  Some of them have had their families threatened.  But others have come forward."

From Whitewater to Benghazi: A Clinton Scandal Primer.  Amid all the scandals related to the Clinton family, Bill Clinton's sex scandals were supposed to be a dead letter.  After all, the former president weathered impeachment proceedings in the late 1990s — in fact, Hillary Clinton's popularity soared at the time.  As those events receded, Bill Clinton became one of the most popular politicians in America, a smiling, drawling avatar of the happy, carefree 1990s.

Juanita Broaddrick: Hillary 'Disgusting' for Silencing Bill's 'Rape'.  A defiant Juanita Broaddrick told Breitbart on Wednesday that she is revisiting her rape allegations against Bill Clinton in hopes of educating a generation of young Americans on the former president's sordid history with women.  She also slammed Hillary as "disgusting" for allegedly attempting to silence Broaddrick years ago while the Democratic frontrunner insisted in a recent campaign ad that women have a right to be believed if they accuse men of sexual assault.

More Rape-Survivors Need to Publicly Heckle Hillary Clinton.  Republicans have two choices in 2016: we either fight like the Left, or we again lose the White House.  With the help of their DC Media allies, the Left is brilliant at throwing Republican candidates off-message and into a defensive crouch.  One way they do this is by heckling Republican candidates at public events.  And if nothing controversial happens at these events, the DC Media repeatedly lies and says something controversial did happen.  This is why I loved Katherine Prudhomme-O'Brien heckling Hillary, and why our side needs to send rape-survivors like O'Brien to every single Hillary Clinton campaign event, straight through to November of 2016.

Bill Clinton Avoids Reporter's Question About Reemergence Of Juanita Broaddrick.  Former President Bill Clinton on Thursday [1/7/2016] avoided questions from a reporter about the public resurfacing of Juanita Broaddrick, a woman who in 1999 accused Clinton of raping her in the seventies.  Clinton was campaigning for his wife, Hillary Clinton, in Cedar Rapids.  "What's your reaction to Juanita Broaddrick's reemergence?" Daily Caller reporter Kerry Picket asked the former president several times, as Clinton was ushered out of the event.

Bill Clinton's sordid past won't help Hillary in a general election.  Hillary Clinton might want to brush up on the life of Woodrow Wilson.  The two have a lot in common now that the tectonic plates are shifting under them.  Wilson is the former president of the United States and of Princeton University and now a poster child for historic revision.  His racist policies were popular a century ago, and were dismissed by most historians as footnotes to his otherwise progressive politics.  But a new generation of liberals is rewriting the standards, and after demands from some students and faculty, Princeton might remove Wilson's name from its public policy school.  Clinton, meanwhile, finds herself in a similar pickle over how she defended her husband for years against sexual allegations.  The new climate, especially the heightened focus on campus sexual violence, makes Hillary's past conduct look positively anti-feminist.

The Clintons' Cosby Meltdown.  As I document in my book The Clintons' War on Women[,] Bill has attacked, over-powered, bit, raped or exposed himself while in a state of arousal to Eileen Wellstone, Juanita Broaddrick, Carolyn Moffet, Liz Ward Gracen, Becky Brown, Helen Dowdy, Paula Jones, Kathy Fergusen, Christy Zercher and Kathleen Willey, among dozens of others.  CNN's Don Lemon shut off the microphone of a guest who dared raise the issue, claiming Bill's actions are "irrelevant to Hillary."  On the contrary, Don.  Hillary is an accessory after the fact in all of Clinton's sex crimes.

Hillary's Paula Jones nightmare begins.  Hillary Clinton has been counting on the GOP's purported "war on women" theme to generate votes.  The tacit assumption has always been that her husband's pattern of sexual exploitation and even violence toward socially less advantaged females could be disregarded by the public, as it was during his impeachment ordeal of the 1990s.  But important changes have happened in the intervening decades, and a nightmare scenario threatens to unfold: [...]

Exclusive — Paula Jones: Hillary Clinton 'Two Faced,' 'Liar,' 'Cares Nothing About Women at All'.  [Scroll down]  Stated Jones:  "It's really a sad, sad day if Hillary becomes president, because she has allowed her husband to get by with this type of stuff.  Why does he have a right to be back in the White House, the people's house?  "Why is he allowed to be back there with the track record that he has and his wife and the lying that she does and how she tried to discredit all of these women that her husband abused and sexually harassed?"

Can Hillary Go Out In Public?  Hillary Clinton has many weaknesses as a presidential candidate.  One of them used to be her primary asset:  her husband Bill.  Indeed, we never would have heard of Hillary if she hadn't married Bill, and her appeal to Democrats consists largely of nostalgia for his relatively successful administration.  But in an era that is exquisitely sensitive to sexual assault, serial sexual assaulter Bill Clinton may be turning into a liability.  The most serious of the several credible charges against Clinton was asserted by Juanita Broaddrick, who says that Clinton raped her.

Donald Trump Is Smart To Remind Voters Of Clinton Drama.  See, younger journalists and other millennials may have very little understanding of this, but the 1990s were politically exhausting in large part because of the many, many, many, many, many allegations of sexual abuse and harassment on the part of Bill Clinton.  He was famously impeached on one count of perjury and one count of obstruction of justice for how he lied about the sexual relationship he had with just one of these women, his young intern (word to the wise:  don't read the footnotes of the Starr Report if you have and want to keep an even slightly favorable view of the former president, yeegads).  He defended his lies about the sex he had with her on the grounds that he didn't know oral sex (Of various kinds!  Again, do not read the footnotes!) was sex, and that he could — and would! — quibble about the meaning of the word "is."  It was like everything you hate about how Hillary Clinton parses her wrongdoing, but with women claiming rape, exploitation, assault, and other wrongdoing.

Hillary Clinton to Heckler Mentioning Juanita Broaddrick: 'You Are Very Rude,' 'I'm Not Ever Gonna Call on You'.  Hillary Clinton dismissed a heckler Sunday [1/3/2016] during a town hall in Derry, New Hampshire, calling the woman "very rude" and promising never to answer her questions — which concerned Juanita Broaddrick and her allegations of sexual assault from Clinton's husband Bill.

Many 2016 Voters Don't Know Team Clinton Trashed The White House In 2001 — Here's the GAO Report.  When considering how the office of the presidency is regarded by the Clintons, a new generation of voters may not know about Team Clinton:  writing vulgar messages on the White House office walls, destroying furniture, slicing chair cushions, ripping phones out of walls, removing the historical door knobs, stealing items, switching around the fax machines, gluing desk drawers closed, carving into desk tops, removing the "w" key from all the computer keyboards, and much worse.

Rap Sheet: The Women Who Claim to Be Victims of Bill and Hillary Clinton.  While Bill Cosby is finally doing a long overdue perp walk for an alleged sexual assault some 10 years ago, and I say "long overdue" because dozens of woman claim he did the same to them over the decades, the dozen or so women who claim to be victims of Bill and Hillary Clinton are being victimized once again by a DC Media circling the wagons to protect Hillary, a woman they are desperate to see become president.

Hugh Hewitt Points Out Trump Educating A Generation of Millennials About The Clintons.  As much as most of us dislike Salem Media lapdog Hugh Hewitt, he finally makes the point that needs to be underlined about Donald Trump vs Hillary Clinton when referencing history.  A 2016 voter who was a teen during Bill Clinton's time in the White House, is now a thirty something voter who might be learning about the history of Clinton scandals for the first time.  There is an entire generation of the electorate who might be completely oblivious to how vengeful Hillary Clinton was against Bill's victims.  In addition, how many people under the age 30 know about Team Clinton destroying the White House when Al Gore lost to George W Bush?

Playing the 'Bill card' against Hillary.  Hillary Clinton stepped in it big time. Trotting out the "war on women" card that she has played so effectively, she charged Donald Trump with sexism.  But Trump, unlike other Republican candidates in the past, wasn't having any of it.  He fired back, on Twitter, "If Hillary thinks she can unleash her husband, with his terrible record of women abuse, while playing the women's card on me, she's wrong!"  And boom!  The issue switched to President Clinton's record, turning him from a campaign asset to a campaign liability.  As the only president to be impeached over sexual harassment (technically, for lying about sexual harassment), and as a political figure who has faced numerous accusations of rape and sexual abuse, Bill Clinton isn't a good choice for feminist standard-bearer.  Worse yet, bringing up Bill's misbehavior also brings up Hillary's role in covering for his abuses, and in attacking and humiliating his accusers.

Hillary Clinton Is Not A Feminist.  Since Hillary announced that her husband would be joining her on the campaign trail, people have been debating whether or not it's fair for the GOP to attack Bill's sexual misdeeds in order to indirectly attack her.  This makes sense.  After all, we're talking about a guy who has been accused of the sexual assault of more than ten women.  Think about it:  How is her appointing him really any different than if she'd appointed Bill Cosby?

Steyn: Why Is Bill Cosby Finished While Bill Clinton Is Not? — 'Like Racism Thing'.  In filling in for talk show host Rush Limbaugh on Tuesday, conservative commentator Mark Steyn drew a comparison between Bill Cosby, who has lost much of his exposure after allegations that he may have raped numerous have come to the forefront, and former President Bill Clinton, who reportedly will be campaigning for his wife, Democratic presidential Hillary Clinton.  Steyn pointed out that one has become persona non grata while the other has been universally embraced as "the most beloved guy in America."

Bonnie and Clod ride again.  Ol' Bubba is the gift that keeps on giving.  Just when he thought it was safe to hit the road again, Hillary reminds a new generation of voters why wise and prudent men lock up their wives and daughters when Bubba's in the neighborhood.  She has dispatched Bubba to campaign for her next week in New Hampshire.  Bubba knows how to do politics — there's nobody better — and Hillary, who's a whiz at squeezing boodle from contributors with payback on their minds, hasn't a clue.  When she occasionally has a good week, she follows the next with a blunder.  Bubba has stepped forward in recent days to take over the retail end of the family business, and was looking forward to doing what he does best.  But he forgot to put a leash and a muzzle on Hillary, who decided it was a good time to take on Donald Trump.  Not a good idea.

A guide to the allegations of Bill Clinton's womanizing.  On Twitter, Donald Trump, the GOP presidential front-runner, lashed out at Hillary Clinton, directly attacking her husband, the former president, for what Trump called "his terrible record of women abuse." [...] Trump is obviously referring to the sexual allegations that have long swirled around Clinton, even before he became president. [...] But for younger voters who may be wondering what the fuss is about, here again is a guide to the various claims made about Clinton's sex life.

A millennial's guide to Bill Clinton's 20+ sex scandals.  [Monica] Lewinsky was not the only one.  Bill's sexual encounters stretched back throughout his entire political career — which predates the first millennial being born and included cases of sexual misconduct, harassment, assault, and even an accusation of rape.  Unlike the Duke Lacrosse Players or Mattress Girl, these stories had validity but didn't get much mainstream attention.

In Their Own Words: Why Bill's 'Bimbos' Fear a Hillary Presidency.  As women's issues become part of the 2016 presidential race, it may be instructive to review recent statements made by some of Bill Clinton's alleged female victims regarding the ambitions of Democratic front-runner Hillary Clinton.

Trump is Right about Bill Clinton.  [Bill Clinton] had a successful presidency — with an ugly blot.  Sexism isn't the precise word for his predatory behavior toward women or his inexcusable relationship with a 22-year-old intern.  Yet in the larger scheme of things, Bill Clinton's conduct toward women is far worse than any of the multiple offensive things that Trump has said.  Trump has smeared women because of their looks.  Clinton has preyed on them, and in a workplace setting where he was by far the superior.  That is uncomfortable for Clinton supporters but it is unavoidably true.

Trump: Hillary's bullying of Bill's women may become campaign issue.  Hillary Clinton is already playing the sexism card against Donald Trump but he responded quickly by implying that if she persists in that line of attack, he's going to start bringing up her husband's checkered past.  And her treatment of the women.

Don't Let Liberals Tell You What You Can and Can't Say About Hillary.  Here's the question to the Republican candidates:  Are you going to just sit there and let Hillary's minions tell you what you can and can't say?  Are you going to gloss over Hillary's shameful command of the Clinton attack machine's cruel evisceration of the women who suffered the depredations of her lecherous husband? [...] Are you going to shrug your shoulders about her legacy of monetary corruption (cattle futures!), her track record of deadly failures (Libya!), and her sub-par intellect (when I mentioned to another lawyer how she failed the Washington, D.C., bar exam, he started giggling incredulously and asked "How?")?  Are you going to avoid speaking the painfully, utterly obvious truth:  This unaccomplished, malicious, pant-suited punchline is where she is only because she married Bill Clinton?

Woman asks Hillary: If all rape accusers have the right to be believed, should we believe the women who say your husband raped them?  She's not asking this question idly. Hillary, who's gearing up for a sub-moronic identity-politics campaign, actually did say recently that rape accusers have "the right to be believed" even though her own husband has been accused by multiple women of sexual assault.  How does she resolve that dilemma?  I thought she'd never be asked, for the simple reason that no one in the media would dare risk access to a future Clinton administration by putting her on the spot about it.  But sometimes, my friends, the questions don't come from the media.  Sometimes a candidate has to face the voters.  And that's when magical things can happen.

The Secret Sex Abuse Victims of Bill Clinton.  In many respects, the case of Bill Clinton is similar to that of Bill Cosby.  Bill Clinton, like Bill Cosby, has been enabled by the powerful and by a retinue of flunkeys that profit from Clinton's high status. [...] The common theme among many of Bill Cosby's sex victims was that they did not want to challenge a rich, powerful and popular public figure.  People at the level of Cosby and Clinton have an army of lawyers, PR people and nasty private detectives who they use to crush any woman who would dare to tell the truth about them.

Hillary's 'support' of sexual assault victims is pure hypocrisy.  Hillary Clinton's campaign bought itself an avalanche of mockery Sunday night by tweeting out the candidate's claim, "Every survivor of sexual assault deserves to be heard, believed, and supported."  Answering tweets harked back to the '90s and Juanita Broaddrick, Paula Jones, Kathleen Willey and others who claimed Bill Clinton assaulted them — with Hillary invariably "supporting" her husband, not the "survivor."

Backfire: Hillary Tweets All Sexual Abuse Accusers Deserve To Be 'Believed,' Is Reminded Of Her Husband.  On the night CNN aired a controversial and, as many legal critics call it, flawed documentary on sexual assault on college campuses, Democratic Party frontrunner Hillary Clinton tweeted solidarity with victims of sexual assault.  The response could not have been what she was hoping for.

Helping Hillary Clinton Figure Out Her 5 Greatest Accomplishments.  Of course, the real problem Hillary has isn't that she doesn't have achievements; it's just that they're not exploits that anyone would want to base a run at the Presidency on.  [For example,] She has been willing to endure America's most humiliating marriage to achieve wealth and power:  It's fun to guess what Hillary Clinton would have done with her life if she hadn't married Bill and ridden his coattails.  City council member in Little Rock, Arkansas?  EPA bureaucrat?  A lawyer for Planned Parenthood?  She's a very small person who latched onto her husband's very big last name.  In return, she had to stay married to a man who cheated on her.  Constantly.  Worse yet, not only did she know it, the whole world knows it.

Lest We Forget: The Clintons' Chinagate Crimes, the Worst Scandal in American History.  The "Chinagate" fundraising scandal plagued the 1996 Bill Clinton-Al Gore campaign and Hillary was very much involved.  Chinagate aka Commercegate is the most serious scandal in U.S. history.  It involves the transfer of America's most sensitive technology, including but not limited to nuclear missile and satellite technology, apparently in exchange for millions of dollars in contributions to the 1996 Clinton-Gore re-election effort and the Democratic National Committee.  The Chinagate scandal of 1996 ended up in an award of $900,000 in attorney's fees and costs to Judicial Watch ten years later.  The scandal was an apparent scheme by the Clinton administration to sell seats on taxpayer-funded trade missions in exchange for campaign contributions to the 1996 Clinton-Gore campaign.

Lest We Forget — Hillary's $100K Cattle Scam.  [Scroll down]  All Hillary had to do was put $1,000 of her own money into a block of cattle futures at a time when her husband, then the attorney general, had a thirty point lead for the governorship.  How did Hillary make out?  From her initial investment of $1,000, she came away with $99,537.  Among the community of experts, there is general agreement that between 75 percent and 90 percent of commodity players lose.  And no one turns $1,000 into $100,000.  "The average retail customer has about as much chance of that kind of success as I have of driving to Hawaii," one Chicago-based investment advisor noted.

Whitewater Indictment Haunts Hillary All The Way To Benghazi.  Washington watchdog group Judicial Watch is suing the Obama regime to obtain a copy of a draft indictment against Hillary for her role in the Whitewater scandal, which involved the former lawyer's work on a fraudulent real estate project for a Little Rock savings and loan that cut the Clintons in on a sweetheart deal.

Lawsuit: Obama Administration Withholding Draft of Clinton Whitewater Indictment.  Conservative watchdog group Judicial Watch is suing the National Archives and Records Administration (NARA) to obtain copies of a 20-year-old draft indictment against Hillary Clinton for her role in the Whitewater scandal.  In a press release sent to reporters late on Tuesday [10/20/2015], Judicial Watch announced its intent to file a Freedom of Information Act lawsuit against NARA for withholding an indictment written by Hickman Ewing, Jr., the deputy independent counsel and prosecutor investigating Whitewater, in 1996.  The agency admitted it had found the records in March 2015 but is withholding the documents, claiming their release would constitute an unwarranted invasion of Clinton's privacy.

Details from 'The Clintons' War On Women' Will Horrify You.  Hillary Clinton recently put out a campaign video in which she declares that all rape victims deserved to be believed.  But what about Paula Jones?  Juanita Broaddrick?  Kathleen Willey?  Eileen Wellstone?  Carolyn Moffet?  Elizabeth Ward Gracen?  Becky Brown?  Helen Dowdy?  Kathy Ferguson?  Christy Zercher?  That's one of the questions at the heart of Roger Stone's new bombshell book, "The Clinton's War On Women."  In it, Stone, a former aide to Richard Nixon and self described "dirty trickster", chronicles the lengths to which Bill and Hillary Clinton have gone to silence the many women who have accused Bill Clinton of sexual assault.

21 most consequential Clinton scandals, ranked from most important
[#1]   Monica Lewinsky:  Led to only the second president in American history to be impeached.
[#2]   Benghazi:  Four Americans killed, an entire system of weak diplomatic security uncloaked, and the credibility of a president and his secretary of state damaged.
[#3]   Asia fundraising scandal:  More than four dozen convicted in a scandal that made the Lincoln bedroom, White House donor coffees and Buddhist monks infamous.
[#4]   Hillary's private emails:  Hundreds of national secrets already leaked through private email and the specter of a criminal probe looming large.

Lucianne Goldberg: Bill's 'bimbos' ... 'they're back!  Lucianne Goldberg, one of the pivotal figures in the Monica Lewinsky affair that rocked Bill Clinton's second term in office, is marveling at how the defining scandal of the late 1990s is now being resurrected as a result of Hillary Clinton's 2016 presidential bid. [...] Goldberg, who worked as a literary agent in the 1990s, was the person who advised former White House staffer Linda Tripp to record hours of personal conversations with Lewinsky in which the young intern detailed her extensive affair with Clinton.  The recordings were central to the Lewinsky scandal, which became public when Matt Drudge reported on his young website, Drudgereport.com, that Newsweek editors had killed a story on the president's affair.

Bill Clinton Hushed Evidence Of Iran Terror, Tainting Hillary.  Bill Clinton apparently knew as president that Iran was behind the 1996 Khobar Towers bombing but suppressed the evidence.  It's one of an array of failures arguing against another President Clinton.

Hillary Clinton's Empire of Dirt.  [Scroll down]  Bill Clinton's sordid sexual harassments are ancient history better forgotten.  But Ms. Clinton must accept that her advocacy video about sexual assault and harassment unfortunately dredges them back up.  Do her present boilerplate professions of believing the alleged victim amount to a sort of postmodern "I will let you down" confession?  For two decades of Bill Clinton's political ascendance, Ms. Clinton's own attitude toward women who alleged that they were either harassed or sexually assaulted by Governor and then President Bill Clinton was that they were either delusional or gold-digging connivers.  Nothing that Ms. Clinton said or did ever suggested that Juanita Broddrick, Kathleen Willey, Paula Jones, or Monica Lewinsky — or scores of others — was anything other than a liar or an opportunist.

The Clintons: Security Risks Squared.  The latest round of revelations — significantly headlined by the New York Times — shows that Madam Secretary's private email server housed top-secret emails.  This is directly contrary to what she has been assuring the world all along. [...] Hillary Clinton is now apologizing on an almost daily basis for her indiscretions.  She now says she "didn't think" about what email system to use.  Let's see:  Her Rube Goldberg health care plan crashed and burned in 1994.  Her eight-year tenure (2001-2009) in the U.S. Senate was marked only by her vote in favor of the invasion of Iraq.  She has been apologizing to her fellow liberals for that vote ever since.  Her time at State was notable for her attack on the pro-life policies of Canada's Prime Minister Harper.  She launched that particular assault in 2010 while on an official visit to Ottawa.  It was the worst example of ugly Americanism in two hundred years of U.S.-Canadian relations.  Most famously, she initiated the "reset" of U.S. relations with Russia.

Hillary Clinton Says Sexual Assault Survivors Have the 'Right To Be Believed' — Does That Apply to Her Husband's Alleged Victims?  Hillary had to know this was awkward, but modern conventions of political correctness now require liberal women to stand unequivocally behind alleged victims of sexual assault.  So, here was Hillary on Monday [9/15/2015]:  "To every survivor of sexual assault... You have the right to be heard.  You have the right to be believed.  We're with you."  That's of course news to a number of women who Hillary not only refused to believe, she actively participated in campaigns to discredit them and destroy their reputations.  From the Washington Post, here's a partial list of women who've accused her husband of sexual assault or other illegal sexual conduct: [...]

How Hillary helps powerful men abuse women.  Earlier this year, Hillary Clinton told a cheering Silicon Valley audience, "There is a special spot in hell for women who don't help other women."  If there is such a place in hell, Hillary has reserved parking there.  It's hard to think of any other politician who has done as much to exploit women while doing so little for them.  Except maybe her husband. [...] Kathleen Willey, one of her husband's victims, responded to Hillary's "Message to Survivors of Sexual Assault," ad by saying, "She believed what happened for sure.  She just chose to ignore the plight of all of his victims, thus enabling him to continue to abuse and rape women in the future."  "She's a lying pig.  I cannot believe that she had the gall to make that commercial.  How dare she?  I hope she rots in hell."  Hillary didn't stand with victims then.  Instead she ran a "war room" targeting the women her husband had harassed in a repulsive political cleanup operation.

Kathleen Willey Not a Big Hillary Fan.  The delusional and tone-deaf Granny Clinton was dumb enough to take to Twitter Monday [9/14/2015] in a message to rape victims, while conveniently forgetting (early dementia) her husband is an accused rapist and serial pervert.  She's probably banking on the fact Democrats really don't care about rape; they just want to use it as a club in their phony "war on Women" nonsense.

Hillary's new video is the most tone deaf ad ever.  A lot of pundits are telling Hillary Clinton to fire her bloated campaign staff, but I have to believe that the problem lies between her ears.  This woman has absolutely no realistic perspective on herself. [...] Does the name Kathleen Willey mean anything at all to you, Hillary?

Hillary Clinton says all female sexual-assault accusers 'have the right to be believed'.  Hillary Clinton provoked a fearsome outrage from the political right on Monday with an online video in which she insists Americans should reflexively side with young women on college campuses who accuse male students of sexual assault.  'You have the right to be heard.  You have the right to be believed.  We're with you,' the Democratic front-runner says in the video, which she addresses 'to every survivor of sexual assault.'

Vetting Hillary.  Mrs. Clinton:  Your husband's staff created the neologism "bimbo eruptions" to describe Bill's affairs at the Arkansas State House and the White House.  If "bimbo" is a fair characterization of your husband's lady friends, what would you call a woman who tolerates, enables, or excuses a philanderer?  Do you think elected officials should risk the dignity of high office or the integrity of security officers (State Police and Secret Service) to solicit or exploit naive and vulnerable girls?  Perhaps you are aware that the Secret Service has been used as cover for sexual escapades of former presidents that include Jack Kennedy, Lyndon Johnson, and now your husband.  Will that practice continue if and when a woman becomes president?  Will your husband have female interns as helpers or assistants in a Hillary Rodham White House?  Do you still think a presidential dalliance is a private matter, therefore protected, behavior?

Déjà Vu: When Bill Clinton Pardoned His Former CIA Director over Classified Documents on His Home Computer.  Former secretary of state Hillary Clinton insists she did nothing wrong by running all of her government communications, including classified material, through her unsecured, home-brewed computer server.  Perhaps she's forgotten one of her husband's final acts in the Oval Office:  issuing a presidential pardon to former CIA director John Deutch.  Deutch's offense?  Keeping classified material on unsecured home computers.  The pardon came just as Deutch was reportedly going to cop a plea with the Justice Department.  Deutch headed the CIA from May 1995 to December 1996.

Use PsyWar Principles to Stop Clinton and Biden.  Hillary Clinton was closely associated with the Million Mom March (2000-2001), which used children as human shields (note the new language of the argument) to defraud its own donors and volunteers.  The Million Mom March lied to the public, and to its own volunteers and donors, about firearm misuse killing 12 or 13 children a day.  This is true only if one counts "children" old enough to vote, sign contracts, and, more to the point, join gangs like the Crips, Bloods, and Latin Kings.  The Million Mom March also misused 501(c)(3) tax-exempt money to influence the 2000 election.  The Brady Campaign is even stupid enough to admit this on a current web page!  "Moms mobilized on the Internet; many called their members of Congress for the first time.  They offered photo ops, and passed out apple pies to some Congressional leaders, while promising to put others in time-out chairs."  The web page even admits openly that "MMM President Mary Leigh Blek, on behalf of the moms, endorsed Hillary Clinton for the U.S. Senate at a New York MMM meeting in New York."  It is outright illegal for 501(c)(3) organizations to endorse candidates.  It is therefore vital to use "Hillary Clinton" and "scandal" in the same sentence as often as possible in this context, along with phrases like "diversion of tax-exempt money to influence an election."

Where is the Coverage of Juanita Broaddrick?  Juanita Broaddrick's story is a credible one, and one of the many "bimbo eruptions" that Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton handled during her husband Bill's presidential campaign As Linda Tripp, confidante of former Clinton intern Monica Lewinsky, told the Daily Mail how Hillary both enabled and covered up Bill's many dalliances:  Tripp said:  'His political success was largely dependent upon Hillary.  He owed her a great deal.  As is widely acknowledged, Hillary took care of all the 'bimbo eruptions' of which there were thousands in order to present to the world an electable candidate.

Hillary Clinton's camp fears a new 'bimbo eruption' will put the kibosh on candidacy.  In recent weeks Hillary's campaign has found itself increasingly mired in the scandals of the past.  Paula Jones, whose sexual harassment case almost cost Bill the presidency 21 years ago, has already come forward to deliver her verdict on Hillary's bid for the highest office. [...] Similarly Linda Tripp, the woman who outed Monica Lewinsky, felt compelled to speak out against Hillary's presidential bid.

Linda Tripp says Democratic contender is a liar who treats the public with contempt.  It was the scandal that saw Bill Clinton impeached and which threatened to bring down his presidency.  For many, it continues to define it to this day.  But according to the woman who outed Monica Lewinsky as the president's mistress, the real story was never about Monica.  It was about 'subornation of perjury, obstruction of justice... a true abuse of power.'  And it was about Hillary.

Linda Tripp breaks silence after nearly 20 years, unloads on Hillary.  Linda Tripp, the tape-recording former pal of Monica Lewinsky who exposed the intern's affair with President Bill Clinton, broke nearly two decades of silence Tuesday [7/28/2015] and unloaded on Hillary Clinton.  The 65-year-old Tripp tore into both Clintons, but saved her harshest rhetoric for the former first lady, calling her a power-hungry monster who would do anything to get elected.

What Bill's Sex Accuser Just Did Has The Potential To Cripple The Clintons For Good.  In April, Kathleen Willey said of Hillary Clinton:  "I haven't seen one single accomplishment that would give her the credentials to be president of the United States."  The scathing critique went further, as Willey called Clinton a "serial liar" who would attract scandals daily as the 2016 campaign drags on. [...] According to a recent BizPac Review article, Willey has compounded her anti-Clinton stance by launching a new website to solicit accusations from other potential sexual assault victims.

Woman who accused Bill Clinton of sexual harassment launches anti-Hillary website to recruit other 'victims'.  A woman who has claimed she was sexually assaulted by Bill Clinton during his presidency in 1993 is going after his wife with a website chronicling 'a scandal a day' — and she's looking for more sex-harassment victims.  Kathleen Willey testified in a lawsuit brought by Paula Jones against the former president that he groped her and kissed her in a small room near the Oval Office.  The Clintons and their lawyers disputed that claim.  But now Willey says Hillary Clinton is 'the most corrupt human being, the most corrupt politician that this nation has ever seen, man or woman.'

Estrangement from the truth [is] a problem for Hillary.  Hillary Clinton lies.  This is a widely acknowledged fact among people who pay attention and aren't on her payroll.  Nearly 20 years ago, New York Times columnist William Safire wrote:  "Americans of all political persuasions are coming to the sad realization that our first lady — a woman of undoubted talents who was a role model for many in her generation — is a congenital liar."  Younger folks probably have little to no memory of the lies Mr. Safire had in mind, though some might have heard about Hillary Clinton's infamously implausible explanation for how she managed to make a 10,000 percent profit in cattle futures simply by reading The Wall Street Journal.  Suffice it to say that she's been honing her craft for decades.  And that's turning into a problem for her, perhaps her biggest problem.

Hillary is still a bad liar despite decades of practice.  Nearly 20 years ago, New York Times columnist William Safire wrote:  "Americans of all political persuasions are coming to the sad realization that our first lady — a woman of undoubted talents who was a role model for many in her generation — is a congenital liar."  Younger folks probably have little to no memory of the lies Safire had in mind, though some might have heard about Clinton's infamously implausible explanation for how she managed to make a 10,000 percent profit in cattle futures simply by reading The Wall Street Journal.  Suffice it to say that she's been honing her craft for decades.  And it's turning into a problem for her.

Former director: Clinton administration bankrupted CIA ahead of 9/11.  The Clinton administration had bankrupted the intelligence community and refused to let the CIA prioritize anti-terrorism over other major priorities in the late 1990s, leaving the agency stretched too thin in the days ahead of the 2001 terrorist attacks, former Director George J. Tenet said in a 2005 document declassified Friday [6/12/2015].  Mr. Tenet, who was head of the agency at the time of the Sept. 11 attacks and has taken severe criticism for not anticipating and heading them off, said in the document that he took the threat of Osama bin Laden very seriously, and put major effort into trying to penetrate al Qaeda, beginning as far back as 1998.

Chafee: 'Too many ethical questions' surround Hillary.  Former Rhode Island Gov. Lincoln Chafee's (D) presidential candidacy is less than 24 hours old, and he's already doing something no other Democratic challenger has:  directly bashing front-runner Hillary Clinton's ethics.  During a Thursday morning [6/4/2015] interview on CNN's "New Day," Chafee laid out a litany of ethics allegations that have followed Clinton throughout her career.  "It's a long record going back over decades of questionable ethical practices.  People groan when I bring up Whitewater and all these things, the Rose Law Firm records; it seems like it never stops," Chafee said, mentioning issues from Clinton's time as first lady.

Mika [Brzezinski is] Miffed 'Jabby' Jindal Dared Mention Monica Lewinsky.  Mika Brzezinski apparently thinks that when it comes to discussing Bill and Hillary Clinton — those paragons of integrity — certain subjects should be taboo.  On today's [6/3/2015] Morning Joe, Mika took umbrage that about-to-announce Bobby Jindal dared mention that Bill had lied about Monica Lewinsky.  Mika was miffed that Jindal thought it was "blasé" to bring up Monica.

Kathleen Willey: Hillary [is] a 'Money-Hungry Hypocrite'.  Kathleen Willey, the former White House aide who claims President Bill Clinton sexually assaulted her in 1993 during his first term, now suspects the former president suffers from dementia, and calls Hillary Clinton a "money-hungry" hypocrite who looks "awfully haggard" and is the "worst role model for a wife and a mother and a politician."  Willey, author of the book "Target: Caught in the Crosshairs of Bill and Hillary Clinton," made her scathing comments in an interview Sunday night [5/31/2015] on Aaron Klein Investigative Radio, broadcast on New York's AM 970 and Philadelphia 990 AM, as well as online.  She is now seriously questioning the mental health of both of the Clintons.

The Hillary Enigma.  Like most Americans, I first took notice of her when Bill began his campaign to become President.  I recall being struck by the fact that in 1969 as a student at Wellesley College, her 92-page senior thesis was devoted to the community organizer, Saul Alinsky's book.  The title of the thesis was "There is Only the Fight...": An Analysis of the Alinski Model."  She would request Wellesley to deny access to it.  Alinksy was a Communist.  His twelve rules for radicals, unlike the Ten Commandments, are devoid of a moral message.  Instead, the message is "this is how you can win."  Hillary would do well to review Rule 7, "A tactic that drags on too long becomes a drag."  She was already old news when she announced her candidacy and it is becoming older with every passing day as she fails to take questions from the media, participating in totally staged events to look like "one of the people."  She and Bill are not one of the people.  They, like the Bushes, are political royalty.  They have both been around a very long time.

The Hillary Enigma.  There isn't a single Senate bill that she introduced or that is credited to her.  She is said to have worked hard and gotten along well with her colleagues, but her Senate years are a blur in her public life.  Then she made a bid to be the Democratic Party's presidential candidate in 2008 and along came Barack Hussein Obama with whom the voters fell in love.  When he was elected, he asked her to become his Secretary of State.  With the exception of the Benghazi tragedy on September 11, 2012, a clear failure of judgment and duty, and about which she lied, her years as Secretary of State reflect her years in the Senate; nothing of any significance resulted, no major treaties, no major anything, except for one more scandal.

Reprise of a famous bimbo eruption.  For the Republicans, worthy or not, Hillary and Bubba are the gift that keeps on giving. Whoever is responsible for writing the thank-you notes has a big job ahead.  The dynamic duo keep a network of warehouses just to house and keep track of the gifts.  No wonder Hillary needs her own Internet server.  Recent gifts have established Hillary as fully the equal of Bubba as a fount of scandal and calumny.  Hillary's scandals are about grubbing for cash, and Bubba was more fun as the bane of nymphs, striking with his pants at his ankles, which many voters — but by no means all — thought was tacky and beneath the dignity of the presidency.  Bubba's final years in office were the stuff of an unscripted reality show, and it had very high ratings.  Who could write a better final scene than a presidential impeachment trial?

Paula Jones warns against voting for Hillary.  She was the woman who almost brought down the president, with her allegations of sexual harassment.  But 21 years after Paula Jones accused Bill Clinton of lurid behavior, she is speaking out against Hillary and insisting that his wife is not fit to be President either — because of her husband's history of bad behavior.  In an exclusive interview with Daily Mail Online Jones delivers her own verdict on Hillary's bid to become president, saying that her husband's attitude towards women disqualifies Bill from re-entering the White House — while what she calls Hillary's 'lies' disqualify her from the Oval Office.  'There is no way that she did not know what was going on, that women were being abused and accosted by her husband,' she says.  'They have both lied.'

The story of Tripp 'Body Count' list.  During Linda Tripp's two-day deposition with attorneys from Judicial Watch on Filegate issues, she mentioned a "list" that was given to her mysteriously.  While she believes the list was left at her workstation in the White House counsel's office by her former friend Monica Lewinsky, the list originated with WorldNetDaily investigative reporter David Bresnahan.  Known around the Internet as "the Body Count," the list is a collection of names of people associated with Clinton administration scandals who have died mysterious and often violent deaths.  Bresnahan broke the story of the list during the summer of 1997 while researching his book, "Cover Up: The Art and Science of Political Deception."

More about the Clinton Body Count.

The Clinton Crime Family.  I have more than 20 years of experience with Bill and Hillary Clinton.  I was numbered at the very top of their enemies list in the 1990s among media people.  They didn't mind hurting their enemies — and they used the power of the state to do it.  They are only too willing to let their friends and supporters pay for their crimes, as top fundraiser Peter Paul can attest, after serving more than a decade behind bars for campaign finance violations coordinated by Hillary herself.  They used the Internal Revenue Service to go after their enemies, their critics and even ex-lovers who posed a threat.  They bullied, harassed, intimidated, and, though no one likes to talk about it in polite company, there is indeed an impressive trail of inexplicable death that has followed in their wake.  The famous "Clinton Body Count" even persuaded Monica Lewinsky not to make unnecessary trouble for the "family."

Cattlegate explained in detail.  [Scroll down]  These results are quite remarkable. Two-thirds of her trades showed a profit by the end of the day she made them and 80 percent were ultimately profitable.  Many of her trades took place at or near the best prices of the day.  Only four explanations can account for these remarkable results.  Blair may have been an exceptionally good trader.  Hillary Clinton may have been exceptionally lucky.  Blair may have been front-running other orders.  Or Blair may have arranged to have a broker fraudulently assign trades to benefit [Hillary] Clintons account.  Many people familiar with these markets think that the first two explanations are exceedingly unlikely.  Well-informed traders rarely trade with such remarkable success and consistency.  In other words, the odds of a trader honestly achieving these results are simply too high for hard-nosed traders to believe.  The Journal of Economics and Statistics placed those odds at 250 million to one.

Monica Lewinsky is offered $1Million by Las Vegas sex museum for DNA-stained blue dress.  It is the item of clothing she is most closely associated with.  But now, Monica Lewinsky has reportedly been offered a whopping $1million for her 'DNA-stained' blue dress, which she wore during her liaisons with then-President Bill Clinton in the nineties.  The 41-year-old has been offered the enormous sum of money by the Erotic Heritage Museum in Las Vegas, which had previously tried to pay her a smaller $250,000 for the infamous GAP dress.

Monica Lewinsky offered $1 million by Las Vegas erotic museum for dress worn during tryst with Bill Clinton.  Monica Lewinsky now has one million reasons to part ways with her infamous blue dress.  The Las Vegas Erotic Heritage Museum is upping its offer to $1 million for the dress Lewinsky wore during her illicit rendezvous with then-President Clinton.  The museum had previously proposed to pay Lewinsky $250,000 for the DNA-stained fashion piece.

Hillary's Armor.  Forty years ago, Hillary would have us believe that she wasn't just the wife of a man running for Arkansas governor — she was a lucky or brilliant investor who in less than three weeks doubled her money.  No, tripled!  No, wait — quadrupled ... no, actually, much more!  "Clinton made almost $100,000 in the cattle futures market," reported Tom Brokaw, and "many wondered whether that was a sweetheart deal arranged for the governor's wife."  Of course it was.  In less than three weeks, Hillary turned $1,000 into $16,427.  "I don't understand how that could have possibly occurred," she said.  "My husband and I missed the fact that we had actually made some money."  A hundred thousand dollars — twice what her husband made as governor.  Who remembers trivia like that?

Put "$16,427 Clinton" into Google, and this is what you get:
White House Defends Hillary Clinton's Profitable Commodities Trading.  In the late 1970's, Hillary Rodham Clinton made almost $100,000 in the cattle futures market, causing many to wonder if it might be a sweetheart deal arranged for the wife of the then-Arkansas Governor Bill Clinton.

I Believe Hillary Clinton.  I have always believed her.  I believed her when she said that her own investment savvy allowed her to realize a 10,000 percent profit by turning a $1,000 investment in cattle futures into nearly $100,000 within ten short months with help from an Arkansas crony, James Blair, just as her attorney general husband was about to become governor.  I believed her when she said that Blair did not arrange to have a broker fraudulently assign trades to benefit her account, even though economists calculated the odds of such a return happening as, at best, 1 in 31 trillion.  I believe Mrs. Clinton and her husband did not pressure David Hale, when Bill Clinton was governor of Arkansas, into providing an illegal $300,000 loan to the Clintons' business partner in the infamous Whitewater land deal.  I believed Mrs. Clinton when she reported as missing hundreds of pages of her law firm billing records and other documents in response to a grand jury subpoena seeking to investigate the Whitewater matter.

The Hillary Baggage No One is Talking About.  Lots of people are talking about the scandals of the Clinton Foundation and how Bill and Hillary Clinton enriched themselves by selling their political influence.  But there's another, more personal side of Hillary's candidacy that no one is discussing.

Hillary, the Loser.  [Scroll down]  Exactly as she's doing today, Hillary stumbled into 2008 under the impression that the presidency was hers for the taking.  She had never run for office before, in any meaningful sense (her Senate seat was in a safe New York Democratic district, the 3rd millennial equivalent of a rotten borough, seized from a befuddled Daniel P. Moynihan on his retirement), and it showed.  She had no strategy, no ground plan, not even a real organization apart from the guttersnipes and hustlers that had infested Bill's White House.  When Obama began walking across the water nationwide, she had no response.  Then it was too late for anything but Bill's Orval Faubus imitation.

The Clinton Myth.  Bill Clinton presided over a failed presidency. [...] The single domestic policy goal that Bill and Hillary sought, health care reform, failed.  Every foreign policy and national security problem under Clinton got worse.  The newly freed Russia began as our friend and ended as our enemy.  Clinton ignored the threat of radical Islam.  He let North Korea make major strides toward becoming a nuclear power.  He ignored genocide in the southern half of Sudan.  As Hillary plans to capitalize on the Clinton Myth, America ought to wonder what the heck she is thinking.  Bill Clinton was a failure as president, just as Hillary Clinton was a failure as secretary of state.

Clinton Foundation cash undermines Hillary's 'champion' claim.  [Scroll down]  But here's the part the Clintons, for all their Ivy League smarts, are incredibly still clueless about:  that it's the appearance of impropriety, of conflict of interest, that hurts.  And that's the (electoral) problem.  These are the same people who debased the White House by selling access to the Lincoln Bedroom.  The same people who pardoned Marc Rich, a fugitive from justice, after receiving large donations from his ex-wife, Denise.  The president waited until his last day in office to issue the pardon.  Even close friends like James Carville said it was a disgrace.  But it wasn't illegal, and in Clintonland that's what counts.

Hillary's Resume: What She Hopes You've Forgotten.  HILLARY assumed authority over selecting a female Attorney General.  Her first two recommendations (Zoe Baird and Kimba Wood) were forced to withdraw their names from consideration, and then she chose Janet Reno.  Janet Reno has since been described by Bill himself as "my worst mistake."  HILLARY recommended Lani Guanier for head of the Civil Rights Commission.  When Guanier's radical views became known, her name had to be withdrawn.  HILLARY recommended her former law partners, Web Hubbell, Vince Foster, and William Kennedy for positions in the Justice Department, White House staff, and the Treasury, respectively.  Hubbell was later imprisoned, Foster committed suicide, and Kennedy was forced to resign.

The War on Women: Juanita Broaddrick and Bill Clinton.  To set the stage for why the country needs Hillary Clinton to be the next president, Democrats are trying to force-feed Americans a "war on women" pablum, when such a war — as they present it — does not exist.  For the real "war on women," however, Democrats might turn to Hillary Clinton herself and her husband, former President Bill Clinton.

Why Hillary's Alinsky Letters Matter.  Alana Goodman's revelation at the Washington Free Beacon of previously unknown correspondence between Hillary Clinton and Saul Alinsky shows that Clinton has not been honest about her far-left past.  The lost Alinsky letters also remind us of what we ought to know but have forgotten: Hillary is not "Clintonian."  While Bill and Hillary have worked, schemed, and governed as a couple for decades, Hillary has always been to the left of Bill.  As president, she would govern more like Obama than like her husband.

Hillary Clinton, Saul Alinsky correspondence revealed.  Previously unpublished correspondence between Hillary Clinton and the late left-wing organizer Saul Alinsky reveals new details about her relationship with the controversial Chicago activist and shed light on her early ideological development.  Clinton met with Alinsky several times in 1968 while writing a Wellesley college thesis about his theory of community organizing.  Clinton's relationship with Alinsky, and her support for his philosophy, continued for several years after she entered Yale law school in 1969, two letters obtained by the Washington Free Beacon show.

Aide who accused Bill Clinton of groping her says 'Americans deserve better than the Clintons'.  Kathleen Willey was a Democratic fundraiser volunteering in the White House during Bill Clinton's presidency who claims the former president kissed and groped her inside a private study off of the Oval Office.  Now, with a potential presidential run by Hillary Clinton in the works, Willey has resurfaced to warn the American public about the 'dysfunctional' former first family.

Why Mrs. Clinton's Entire History Matters.  Mrs. Clinton herself, if given the chance to dictate the review of her past, would doubtless say, "What difference, at this point, does it make?"  And why shouldn't she pretend that all she has done, and that every awful, self-serving lie she has told, means nothing?  Look at the heights she and her husband have scaled by pretending to be sincere, competent, or ethical, while those who know otherwise protect them from themselves.

Hillary Clinton's war on women.  The "bimbo eruptions" that Bill and Hillary thought were well behind them are coming back with a vengeance, and it's only 2014. [...] The fact that Bubba's bimbos were leftovers from an earlier century means that the recollection of them won't be old news to the millions of voters who grew up after the Clintons left the White House.  Fourteen years and two presidents later, a lot has been swallowed by the memory hole.  Bubba's bimbos and Hillary's enabling and manipulation of scandal will be new and titillating stuff.

Hillary, Relentless and Shameless.  The phrase "Clinton fatigue" entered the political lexicon during the previous century; by this point, we surely must have entered the age of Chronic Clinton-Fatigue Syndrome.  But the recent making public of the so-called Hillary Papers — the notes kept by her close friend Diane Blair during Mrs. Clinton's tumultuous White House years, as reported by the Washington Free Beacon — shed additional light on the character of the "co-presidents" who just will not go away.

The Clintons' Legacy of Lies.  It is difficult to explain to Americans, particularly young Americans, what was wrong with the Clinton era, and why we ought not want to re-live it.  The 1990s are sealed into our national memory as a time of great prosperity and expectation — killed off, in Democrats' rewriting of history, by the 2000 recount and all that followed.  The truth is that by 2000, Democrats could not run away from Clinton quickly enough.  It's worth revisiting why.

The Disgraceful Republican Cave-in on Loretta Lynch.  Hillary Clinton didn't have such a bad week after all.  Sure, she's reeling from the latest unseemly revelations about the Clinton Foundation family piggy bank.  But they're only marginally worse than earlier unseemly revelations about the Clinton Foundation.  They are roughly on par with the revelations about how Mrs. Clinton obstructed Congress's Benghazi investigations by purging her unlawful private e-mail system, which was worse than her obstruction of the State Department's Benghazi investigation.  Yet it may not have been as bad as the obstruction of justice that was a staple of her husband's administration.  Those obstructions, in turn, were on par with her husband's selling of a pardon to a fugitive fraudster on the FBI's Ten Most Wanted List ... which itself was not quite as bad as his awarding pardons to FALN terrorists — to ingratiate Hillary! with the New York Puerto Rican community (or at least the radicals therein) in preparation for her Senate campaign.

Hillary Clinton has a baggage problem.  The single biggest threat to Hillary Clinton's chances of being elected president next November — more so than any one running against her in the Democratic primary or even her future Republican general election opponent — is a sense among the electorate that the bad of putting another Clinton in office outweighs the good.  What Clinton cannot have — if she wants to win — is lots of voters saying some variant of this:  "I like her and I think she'd probably be a good president.  But, I just don't want to go through all of that stuff again."  Which is why today is a not-at-all-good day for Clinton's presidential hopes.

Hillary's Iran Scandal: The Empress Has No Clothes.  Where to begin as the fairy tale image of Hillary Clinton begins to dissolve under the white heat of a presidential campaign?

Hillary Clinton Must Answer For Libya.  The Mediterranean, now known as "a cemetery without graves," will be crossed by some 500,000 refugees this year, up from about 220,000 last year.  At the same time, a second round of beheadings of Christians by Islamic State terrorists on Libya's beaches over the weekend drives the point home:  Terrorists are on the rise, and a strong base of their operations is in Libya, a failed state that was taken over by a vile menagerie of pirates, slavers and smugglers in the rubble of the toppled Gadhafi regime.  Who's responsible here?  None other than Hillary Clinton, who served as President Obama's secretary of state during the overthrow of the longtime dictatorship of Moammar Gadhafi in 2011.

Hillary Clinton's NH Co-Chair Insists He Knows Her Positions, Then Admits He Doesn't.  Hillary Clinton has been so non-committal in choosing where she stands on a number of issues, not even her campaign co-chairman in New Hampshire, William Shaheen, knows.  Shaheen said he knew Clinton's ideology, but when Bloomberg's John Heilemann asked him to explain Clinton's positions on two issues, Shaheen went 0 for 2.  Shaheen said he did not know how his boss felt on the Keystone XL Pipeline or the Trans-Pacific Partnership trade agreement.

Don't let Hillary Clinton escape the blame for Libya's anarchy.  American military adventurism relies on a very backward notion of causation.  When evil men in the world kill their own people, somehow America is to blame for not stopping them.  When American action leads directly to disorder, barbarism, and terror, well, that's someone else's fault.  It's our unspoken doctrine of humanitarian anarchy.

Clintons change foreign donation policy, but it depends on your definition of change.  Here we go again.  Because the Mrs. is seeking the presidency, the Clintons' family foundation has changed its policy on accepting millions of dollars in donations from foreign governments.  It seems many worry that foreign governments might just maybe possibly be seeking favorable treatment from another Clinton administration through the back door — if you can imagine such a thing from the people who brought you Whitewater, Travelgate, Monica, Emailgate and more.  And remember the Lincoln Bedroom business, where Clinton guests overnighted and then later, coincidentally, happened to donate to Clinton causes?

Hillary Has A History of Stiffing Waitresses, Hair Stylists.  While the revelation that Hillary Clinton failed to leave a tip during her stop at a Chipotle earlier this week fell flat — few customers tip at the fast-casual Mexican restaurant — a deeper look at the former First Lady's tipping habits shows she does have a history of stiffing people who depend on tips to make ends meet. [...] Clinton's tipping habits were put front-and-center on Wednesday [4/15/2015] when Bloomberg News reported that Clinton and her aide, Huma Abedin, did not leave money in a tip jar after ordering at a Chipotle in Maumee, Ohio.

Read Hillary Clinton's Letters to Communist Revolutionary Saul Alinsky.  Law student Hillary Rodham apparently had quite a thing for left-wing organizer Saul Alinsky — more than she seems willing to publicly admit.  The Washington Free Beacon has been diligently uncovering pieces of the former first lady and presumed 2016 presidential contender's past, on Sunday [9/21/2014] publishing letters between the young Hillary Clinton and Alinsky, the author of the community organizing handbook "Rules for Radicals."

Rewriting the History of Whitewater.  Were the Clintons convicted of a crime relating to Whitewater?  No.  Were they even indicted for any such crimes?  No.  Was there evidence that they engaged in criminal behavior in that affair?  Decidedly yes, and it is documented not in the Starr report on Whitewater, which was, in fact, never issued, but in the report put out by Robert Ray, who replaced Judge Starr before he had completed his task.

Clinton Housing Policy Wrecked Economy, Not 1%.  It wasn't the richest 1% or Wall Street bankers who crashed the economy and created the financial wreckage from which working Americans "have fought" to dig themselves out of.  No, that path to destruction was set by Bill Clinton and his social housing policies.  The evidence is overwhelming that Clinton was the architect of the financial disaster that wiped out trillions of dollars in household wealth.  Under his National Homeownership Strategy, Clinton took more than 100 executive actions to pry bank lending windows wide open.

Google/Dems deadly duo whitewashing Hillary Clinton's Past.  A whopping 60% of Democrats want Hillary Rodham Clinton (HRC) as their next president.  They have decreed America has to have its first woman president "because it's time".  This time the Democrats, Marxist liars holding public office, have joined ranks with the world's largest search engine, with intentions to foist upon a largely unsuspecting America, the First GOOGLE Woman President.  No other politician ever got off to a presidential run with a scrubbed clean slate, but that's what Google — self-proclaimed owners of the truth — will do for HRC.

A breakdown of every scandal swirling around Hillary.  [Scroll down]  Without ever breaking any laws, the Clintons have long appeared to be reaping ill-gotten gains.  Right before Bill was elected governor of Arkansas, family friend James Blair, who also worked as a lawyer for Tyson Foods, helped her turn $12,000 worth of stock — Hillary only had $1,000 in her account at the time — into a near-immediate $100,000 profit.  She did not disclose this until her husband's second year in office.  It was during Bill's first run for president, in 1992, that the Whitewater scandal surfaced.  In the 1970s and '80s, the Clintons and their friends Jim and Susan McDougal had invested in the Whitewater Development Corp.; it was alleged that Clinton, as governor, had pressured a local S&L to loan Susan McDougal $300,000 for real estate investments with the company, and that transactions between an Arkansas bank and Bill Clinton had been concealed.  Neither Clinton was charged, though both McDougals and Gov. Jim Guy Tucker, who served as governor after Clinton, were convicted of fraud.

A brief guide to Clinton scandals from Travelgate to Emailgate.  Hillary Clinton is entering the presidential race in a cloud of scandal surrounding foreign contributions to the Clinton family foundation and her use of a private email account and server to conduct official business while secretary of state.  But she and her husband are no strangers to scandal.  There often seemed to be no end of the scandals during President Bill Clinton's two terms in the White House and Hillary Clinton's campaigns for the Senate starting in 2000 and the Oval Office in 2008.  Political experts began diagnosing "Clinton Fatigue" long ago.

Keeping Hillary Clinton's testimony private is a strategy sure to fail.  After Whitewater, Travelgate, Filegate, Sandy "the burglar" Berger stealing documents from the National Archives and Bill's dalliance with Monica Lewinsky, political reporters got a bit lazy because they had to sit back and wait for the next scandal to break.  The cascading Clintons always served one up.  Some reporters I know openly yearn for a return to the Clinton days.  They miss remarks like what then-Sen. Fritz Hollings of South Carolina said when Bill's poll numbers were falling.  There was no reason to worry, Mr. Hollings said, because, "If they reach 60 percent, then he can start dating again."  The joke illustrated the big difference between the Clintons:  Bill's scandals were for the tabloids, and Hillary's for the business page or the police blotter.  His were perverse fun, hers not so much.  Now that the former senator and secretary of state is about to declare her run for the presidency, happy days for political reporters may be here again.

Report Accuses Hillary Adviser Who Ran Intel Service of Illegally Lobbying for Vladimir Putin Ally.  The Hillary Clinton confidant who was caught running a clandestine intelligence service for her may have also illegally lobbied for Russian President Vladimir Putin's ally in the nation of Georgia.

Top State Department Aide Listed as Clinton Foundation Director.  Hillary Clinton's chief of staff at the State Department was listed as a director at the Clinton Foundation in its corporate records for more than three years after joining the administration, highlighting concerns that Clinton's aides were too close to the foundation during her tenure.  The "William J. Clinton Foundation Corporation" named Cheryl Mills as one its three directors when it applied for nonprofit corporate status in Florida in June 2009 — five months after Mills began serving as Clinton's chief of staff and counsel at the State Department.  The organization continued to list Mills as a director in its annual state filings in 2010, 2011, and 2012. During this time, the foundation updated its office address and registered agent on the same documents.  Chelsea Clinton replaced Mills in the March 2013 report.

Hillary Agonistes.  [Scroll down]  Consider the roll call: Whitewater, the Rose law firm, the miracle of the cattle futures, Vince Foster, Benghazi.  They stand as towering monoliths of pure corruption on the horizon of the American political landscape, fading into the mist down the past forty years and more.  Incidents that would have destroyed anyone else's political career have scarcely even been broached in public; you can bring them up and have no one in hearing distance have any idea of what you're talking about — e.g. her Watergate firing.

Cheryl Mills: The Woman Who Knew Too Much?  The New York Times reports that Cheryl Mills, Hillary Clinton's long-time henchwoman will not be joining the Presidential campaign now presumably in the final stages of formation.  Why?  Perhaps Mills is, to borrow a phrase from Alfred Hitchcock, the woman who knew too much.  Mills, who was the State Department's counselor and chief of staff during the entirety of Hillary's tumultuous tenure, is up to her waist in the Benghazi matter, where the overwhelming evidence is that Secretary of State Hillary Clinton put politics before the security and safety of U.S. citizens serving their country in that hell-hole.

Meet the Men Behind Hillary Clinton's Private 'Spy Network'.  Two big Clinton stories landed last week.  The first is that Hillary Clinton destroyed the electronic copies of her State Department emails on her private server after the State Department subpoenaed her emails.  The second is that Hillary Clinton had an aide running a "secret spy network" that was, among other things, feeding her information on Benghazi, according to a report by Pro Publica and Gawker.  Earlier this month, I noted the myriad ways that Clinton running her own private email server breathes new life into the Benghazi investigation, but this last revelation takes things to a whole new level.

The Return of the Jolly Roger.  Jeff Gerth and Sam Biddle at Gawker write that Hillary's private email server acted as portal to a private intelligence network that included retired members of special operations, former CIA clandestine personnel and foreign informers.  Acting in some indeterminate capacity over it was Sidney Blumenthal, former aide to president Bill Clinton and now apparently a retainer to the family dynasty.

Clintons Received Money from 'Front for the Government of Iran'.  As President Barack Obama and Secretary of State John Kerry close in on a nuclear deal with Iran, it's worth remembering that the Bill, Hillary, and Chelsea Clinton Foundation received money from "a front for the government of Iran" called the Alavi Foundation.  The front gave the Clintons $30,000 between April 2005 and March 2006, according to tax forms.  This occurred years after law enforcement officials tied the group to Iranian radicals.

Was Hillary running a secret intel network?  If the motives to wipe the hard drive on Hillary Clinton's e-mail server weren't already crystal clear, a new development last night put it in Ultra HD.  Gawker's Jeff Girth and Sam Biddle uncovered a secret, private intelligence network run by Sidney Blumenthal for Hillary's benefit, apart from the State Department's own Bureau of Intelligence and Research.

Lawsuit: Clintons are guilty of racketeering, influence peddling.  A conservative watchdog has filed a racketeering lawsuit against former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, arguing that the nation's former top diplomat used a personal email server in order to sell access in return for donations to the Clinton Foundation.  The complaint, filed by conservative activist Larry Klayman's Freedom Watch organization, also names Bill Clinton and the Clinton Foundation as defendants.  It alleges that both Bill and Hillary Clinton "systematically and continuously... conducted a corrupt enterprise" under the definition of the Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations Act.  The suit also alleges that the Clintons used mail and wire fraud to ignore multiple Freedom of Information Act requests for documents pertaining to State Department waivers to people and business thwarting U.S. sanctions by doing business with Iran.

Clintons Received Money from 'Front for the Government of Iran'.  As President Barack Obama and Secretary of State John Kerry close in on a nuclear deal with Iran, it's worth remembering that the Bill, Hillary, and Chelsea Clinton Foundation received money from "a front for the government of Iran" called the Alavi Foundation.  The front gave the Clintons $30,000 between April 2005 and March 2006, according to tax forms.  This occurred years after law enforcement officials tied the group to Iranian radicals.

The Clintons have always been about pay to play.  The Clintons only sold nights in the Lincoln Bedroom to just a few hundred of their closest friends, right?  And who can forget Clinton scandal figure Johnny Chung's defining quote:  "I see the White House is like a subway:  You have to put in coins to open the gates."  While in White House exile since 2000 the Clintons have evidently upgraded their subway.  Mr. Chung told the Los Angeles Times in 1997 that he personally handed a $50,000 check to Mrs. Clinton's chief of staff, Maggie Williams.  In 2013 and 2014 the Clinton Global Initiative received donations from Saudi Prince Turki al-Faisal — the former Saudi ambassador to the U.S. and a member of the Saudi royal family.  The donations were likely a good bit more than $50,000.

We're Going To Reward The Presidency To A Woman Who Enabled A Sex Criminal?  Hillary is a mess.  And we're going to reward the presidency to a woman who's enabled the depredations and exploitation of women by that cornpone husband of hers?  The way feminists have spoken makes us blind to Hillary's record of trashing [women].  They were going to try to destroy Monica Lewinsky.  It's a scandal! Anyone who believe in sexual harassment guidelines should have seen that the disparity of power between Clinton and Monica Lewinsky was one of the most grotesque ever in the history of sex crime.

Hillary's coattail career and her glass-ceiling myths.  Strangely, feminists ignore the damning facts about how Hillary got where she is.  Recently, Hillary addressed 5,000 Silicon Valley businesswomen — real career women.  Vowing to "crack every last glass ceiling," a hint at her White House ambitions, she urged them to demand equal pay and promotions.  She invoked her own supposed early struggles to become the first female partner at the Rose Law Firm in Arkansas while a new mother.  But in truth, even then she was riding on Bill's coattails.  She got the law job in 1977 — surprise — just after he was sworn in as the state's attorney general.  Then, two years later when he was inaugurated as governor — bingo! — she was vaulted to partner.  Hardly the struggle she now recalls.  Though Hillary was called a trial lawyer, her former colleagues told The New York Times they can't remember her ever trying a case.

Hillary's Haitian Headache.  If you've followed American politics for the last quarter century or so, especially on the national level, you know that when you try to navigate your way through the labyrinth of Clinton scandals, you'd better have a good sense of direction because of the vast number of twists, turns and dead ends each particular scandal road leads.  That said, it's kind of fun to see mainstream media begin to chart out the dirt path that tees off of Clinton scandal road dealing with Haiti.

Hillary Clinton's Top Five Clashes Over Secrecy.  [#3] 1994:  Records from the Rose Law Firm:  U.S. investigators in 1994 subpoenaed the First Lady's billing records from her years at the Rose Firm in Little Rock, Arkansas, documents that had been also sought by reporters.  A focus of their interest was her legal work for a failing savings and loan, but records of those billings weren't found.  Much later, Clinton's long-time assistant, Carolyn Huber, said she found in the White House residence an additional box of records that contained the billing memos.  They were turned over to the independent counsel in 1996.  Clinton testified she had no knowledge of how the records wound up where they did.

7 Years Ago Today: Hillary Said She Came Under Sniper Fire in Bosnia, Was Called Out by Sinbad.  Tuesday [3/17/2015] marks the seven-year anniversary of Hillary Clinton telling a campaign crowd that on a 1996 trip to Bosnia she came under sniper fire and was forced to run for cover.  "I remember landing under sniper fire," Clinton said during a George Washington University campaign event on March 17, 2008.  "There was supposed to be some kind of a greeting ceremony at the airport, but instead we just ran with our heads down to get into the vehicles to get to our base."  Clinton added that the feeling in the White House at the time of her visit was "if a place was too small, too poor, or too dangerous, the president couldn't go, so send the First Lady."

Hillary or Bust!  [Scroll down]  On the face of it, the idea of Hillary Clinton as a feminist trailblazer should be ludicrous.  Forty-four women have already served in the Senate since the first one did 93 years ago.  When Hillary took over as secretary of state in 2009, there had not been a white male secretary since 1997.  Unlike national female politicians like Sarah Palin and Carly Fiorina, Hillary Clinton gained public exposure only by virtue of marriage to the powerbroker governor and then president Bill Clinton.  Implicit in her messaging is a return to Bill Clinton's economic good times of the 1990s and the implication that he might well be running half the show — a subliminal and quite sexist message.

Document theft and destruction nothing new for Hillary Clinton.  In the 1990s, the documents Clinton stole and/or caused to be destroyed established her role as the attorney for participants in a fraudulent scheme called Castle Grande.  Clinton, working with Webster Hubbell and Vince Foster, stole hard copies of the billing records of the Rose law firm where they were partners.  They erased the electronic version of these records.  One set of these documents was later found in the White House, just outside Hillary's private office, by an employee.  Another set was found in Foster's attic by his widow, some years after he committed suicide.  Clinton's time sheets (handwritten, as was the practice back in the day) were never found.  To understand why Clinton stole and destroyed the documents, it's necessary to understand the Castle Grande back story.

Hillary's War on the Women Who Boinked Bill.  Why do so many people believe that Bill Cosby is a rapist when he hasn't been convicted?  Because woman after woman keeps coming forward with the same sort of story.  Well guess what?  Woman after woman has come forth with the same sort of story about being harassed by agents of Bill and Hillary Clinton.  We also know Bill and Hillary hired AT LEAST one person who has been caught engaging in the sort of harassment these women faced and turned him loose on them.  In addition, one thing everyone should know about Hillary after her latest email scandal, if they didn't already know it before, is that's she's perfectly willing to engage in criminal behavior that looks sleazy because she believes she can get away with anything.  The way these women Bill slept with, molested and perhaps even raped have been treated by the Clintons while they've paid very little price for it suggests she may be right.  I don't know about anyone else, but I believe that these women were threatened, burglarized and harassed by agents of Bill and Hillary.

Hillary Clinton e-mail controversy revives memories of old White House scandals.  Hillary Rodham Clinton's exclusive use of a private e-mail account while she was secretary of state, combined with her disclosure Tuesday in a tense press conference that she deleted more than 30,000 e-mails that she deemed personal, has given Republicans a rich line of attack.  The controversy is resurrecting memories of the host of two-decade-old controversies that dogged the first couple during their time at 1600 Pennsylvania Ave.:  Whitewater, the White House travel office, the Lincoln Bedroom, Vince Foster, the Monica Lewinsky affair, and the pardon of Marc Rich to name a few.

Has the media finally turned on the Clintons?  Think about all those Clinton scandals in the nineties — Travelgate, Cattlegate, Hillarycare, BedroomGate and, of course, "that woman, Ms. Lewinsky."  OK, don't think about all of them.  They were mind-numbing.  But there were a lot.  That pair just denies any wrongdoing.  And they and their minions talk each one to death until everyone is tired of trying to follow the complications they've thrown up.  And then Hill and Bill declare it's old news.  That's what Obama is trying to do with the IRS and Benghazi scandals.  It worked on Fast & Furious, Solyndra and others.  Stall to make the details old.  Then, point out they're old.

How Many Straws on Hillary's Back?  Does anyone still remember Travelgate, Whitewater, Filegate, shady cattle futures, defiance of subpoenas for billing records at the Rose Law Firm in Little Rock, the fact that she is the only first lady in history to be subpoenaed to appear before a grand jury, and the mysterious presidential pardon during her Senate campaign of convicted Puerto Rican terrorists in New York?  The common denominator in all these fiascos was her assumption that she was above the law — that, and petty avarice. Or rather, Hillary always believed that progressive warriors such as herself needed the resources to do noble work and therefore should be exempt from legal scrutiny.  No matter.  Clinton is probably right that the public either has forgotten all those ethical lapses or wants to move beyond them.

Hillary Clinton's Long History of Hiding Documents.  It doesn't matter.  That's what some in the media have insisted about former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton's decision to use her own private server and email address to avoid public scrutiny for her entire tenure. [...] Hillary Clinton has a long and inglorious history of alleged document tampering and questionable legal maneuverings.

Why Are Brian Williams and Hillary Held to Different Standards?  The Brian Williams saga has grown so large it now has its first victim of collateral damage: Hillary Clinton.  You all know the story by now and why it relates to Williams:  The then-First Lady and then-teenage daughter Chelsea making a trip to hostile Bosnia.  The video and photos of Mrs. Clinton hugging children and smiling as if making her first foray into Euro Disney.  Not a care in the world, and certainly not someone ducking and running from sniper fire, as she claimed numerous times on the 2008 campaign trail before finally admitting it was all BS while blaming sleep deprivation.  Hillary said in 2008 that she "misspoke," which isn't much different from Williams saying he "misremembered".

Forget Brian Williams, it's Hillary Clinton's lie that matters.  [Scroll down]  In March 2008, giving a foreign policy speech on Iraq about her days as first lady and a trip to Tuzla, Bosnia, she delivered an unbelievable tale.  "I remember landing under sniper fire.  There was supposed to be some kind of a greeting ceremony at the airport, but instead we just ran with our heads down to get into the vehicles to get to our base."  So, picture that:  Chopper lands, sniper bullets pinging and zinging everywhere, she and her comrades sprinting across the tarmac, perhaps zigzagging to throw off the sharpshooter.

Huge trove of Hillary Clinton White House files set for release.  A massive collection of documents related to Hillary Clinton's policy work as first lady is set to go public this spring, just as her expected campaign to return to the White House could be ramping up.  The more than 150,000 pages of records come largely from the files of Clinton's policy advisers in her husband's White House and cover topics such as welfare, equal pay, family leave, civil rights, race, poverty and health care reform.

The Editor asks...
Do you suppose there is anything in these documents about Webster Hubbell, or Ron Brown, or Vince Foster?

Bill Clinton's Immunity.  Amidst all of the attention being given to Hillary Clinton's inevitable presidential run, there awaits a debate that must provoke intense and thoughtful commentary.  The prospect of returning Bill Clinton to the White House tests our objectivity and risks widening the gap between those with and without privilege.  While president, Bill Clinton entered into a sexual relationship with an employee, showing flagrant insensitivity to the "power dynamics" underpinning their affair.  He conducted liaisons in the White House which still strike notes of incredulity.  When confronted by accusations, he twisted language with artful deliberateness and was able, quite remarkably, to set aside the internal strictures of conscience and personal responsibility.  These facts are not for debate but are now even more relevant.

Why Hillary Is Not Inevitable: Bill's Sordid Past.  Clinton faces multiple challenges and vulnerabilities, and predictions of her coronation are indeed premature.  So daunting are her challenges, I'm shocked she appears to be running.  Clearly taking a paid speech in the late spring means she intends to milk it and perhaps get in later.  It's a good idea.  She won't wear well.  More importantly, Mrs. Clinton has nothing to say.  Her claim to be "dead broke" shows her isolation from the real world.  Her claim that "companies do not create jobs" seems like a sop to the party's hard left.  She has no overarching theme other than it is her turn to be president.

Obama's attorney general pick wants to throw the book at convicted Hillary Clinton bundler.  The U.S. attorney nominated by President Barack Obama to be his next attorney general is asking a federal judge to impose a stiff prison term of up to four and a half years on a former Hillary Clinton fundraiser convicted of making more than $180,000 in illegal campaign contributions.  The request by Loretta Lynch, the U.S. attorney in Brooklyn, to reject leniency for wealthy hotelier Sant Singh Chatwal and have him sent to federal prison is the latest example of the tough stance Justice Department prosecutors are taking with those convicted of making so-called conduit contributions — campaign cash that is falsely reported as being made in the name of others.

Morris: I Left When Hillary Hired Secret Police to Go After Woman Victimized by Bill.  Friday [10/31/2014] on OraTV's "Politicking," former advisor to President Bill Clinton, Dick Morris said it was then-first lady Hillary Clinton's "Nixonian" attempt to attack the woman Bill Clinton victimized and sexually harassed by hiring detectives to dig for dirt in their lives Hillary could use against them to smear their character.

12 Funniest (and Most Diabolical) Hillary Clinton Quotes

19 Times the Government Withheld Documents It Didn't Want You to See.  [#4] In 1996, after nearly two years of searches and subpoenas, the White House reported it found copies of missing documents from Hillary Rodham Clinton's law firm that described her work for Madison S&L in the 1980s.  The White House previously said it did not have the records.  The originals have not turned up.

First Whitewater prosecutor says 'serious crimes' were uncovered in probe.  The first federal prosecutor to probe the financial dealings of Bill and Hillary Clinton says he was poised to bring high-profile indictments against top Arkansas political and business figures — based in part on testimony from a chief witness against the then president — when he was abruptly replaced by a panel of federal judges, throwing his investigation into turmoil.

Soon-to-Be-Released Clinton Records Show Attempts to Shackle Militia.  Files scheduled to be released from Clinton White House records will show his efforts to shackle militias and set up a "strict licensing system" for paramilitary groups, Politico reports.  In other words, gun control was to be complemented — and in places, supplemented — by people control.  According to Politico, the release is certain to raise the ire of citizens already concerned about "enhancing government surveillance powers and regulating armed groups of U.S. citizens."

Unconditional Surrender.  The University of Arkansas library has backed down from its decision to block the Washington Free Beacon from accessing its special collections archives following a month-long public uproar.  The library suspended the Free Beacon's research privileges in June after the outlet published a story based on audiotapes from university archives that included Hillary Clinton discussing her 1975 defense of a child rapist.  Library officials said the Free Beacon had violated the university's intellectual property rights by publishing the excerpts without submitting a permission-to-publish form.  However, the library later acknowledged it did not own the copyright for the audiotapes.  The copyright holder, veteran Arkansas reporter Roy Reed, has said he does not object to the audio excerpts being published.

The Clinton Police State Cometh.  Political journalists are going to love the Hillary Clinton presidency.  Judging by the way Team Clinton has responded to a series of books that are critical of the elderly homeowner and her philandering husband, it will be a real treat to cover them in the White House (again).  According to Politico, for example, public relations representatives for the Clinton family have issued a joint statement condemning the recent publication of "trashy" books by Ed Klein, Daniel Halper, and Ronald Kessler, all of which reflect less than favorably on the Clintons.  The spokesmen condemned the "despicable" authors, arguing that "their behavior should neither be allowed nor enabled," and called on "legitimate media outlets" to promptly censor them.

Former Clinton Press Secretary Ensures Blackout of Book.  Former Clinton administration press secretary Mike McCurry is quietly waging a campaign to quash coverage on a new tell-all book that exposes Bill and Hillary Clinton's massive political empire.  McCurry has successfully blocked Politico media reporter Dylan Byers from writing about the bestselling Clinton, Inc., written by Weekly Standard editor Daniel Halper, according to emails obtained by the Washington Free Beacon.  McCurry, who spoke to Halper, now claims that he "only vaguely remembers" the interview.  In the emails, McCurry tells Byers to abandon an article about the book.

Library Coordinated with Clinton Staff Prior to Free Beacon Ban, Internal Emails Show.  University of Arkansas library administrators were in contact with Clinton Foundation officials the same day the university rushed to take action against the Washington Free Beacon for publishing recordings of Hillary Clinton discussing her 1975 defense of a child rapist, according to internal emails obtained by the Washington Free Beacon.  Administrators scrambled to "get the lawyers involved" to draft a "cease and desist" letter to the Free Beacon the morning after the "Hillary Tapes" report, and over a week before the university admitted it did not actually own the copyright for the recordings.

Clinton Donor Bans Free Beacon From University of Arkansas Archives.  A Hillary Clinton donor who serves as dean of the University of Arkansas libraries has banned the Washington Free Beacon from the school's special collections archives, after the news outlet published revealing stories about Hillary Clinton based on documents available at the university library.  The ban came days after the Free Beacon ran a story about Clinton's 1975 defense of a child rapist that drew from audio recordings available at the University of Arkansas library's special collections archives.  However, the ban was not mentioned in a June 16 email to this reporter from Steve Voorhies, manager of media relations at the university.

Rape Victim of Clinton Client Speaks Out: Hillary 'Took Me Through Hell'.  In an interview with The Daily Beast, the victim of Hillary Clinton's first criminal client, an alleged rapist whom she successfully defended, spoke out against the 2016 hopeful's women's rights record.  The victim, whom the Daily Beast did not name, was raped as a 12-year old by two men in an attack that left her in a coma for five days and hospitalized for months afterwards.  Clinton, then a 27-year-old attorney in private practice, represented her alleged rapist in court, and reduced his sentence to one year in prison.  However, the Free Beacon recently unearthed tapes from the University of Arkansas in Fayetteville, which houses the Clinton's document archives, in which Clinton "appears to acknowledge that she was aware of her client's guilt, brags about successfully getting the only piece of physical evidence thrown out of court, and laughs about it all whimsically."

'Hillary Clinton Took Me Through Hell,' Rape Victim Says.  Hillary Clinton is known as a champion of women and girls, but one woman who says she was raped as a 12-year-old in Arkansas doesn't think Hillary deserves that honor.  This woman says Hillary smeared her and used dishonest tactics to successfully get her attacker off with a light sentence — even though, she claims, Clinton knew he was guilty.

Hillary vs. Walker: Due Process Only Applies If You're A Liberal.  Clinton.  Champion of women, slayer of conspiracies, and a woman who as a lawyer once went hard at a 12-year-old rape victim in Arkansas was simply providing an invaluable constitutional service.  It was her job.  In the Daily Beast, the now 52-year-old victim says that "Hillary Clinton took me through Hell" — a line that would surely eradicate the political aspirations of any Republican candidate.  Man or woman.  Of course, the case against Clinton is not a question of whether the accused deserves a competent defense — this, we hope is settled.  What it should focus on is whether Clinton deployed some of that unbridled ambition to unethically denigrate and lie about a 12-year-old who was raped.

Hillary Changes Story on Rapist Defense, Claims She Had No Choice.  In a video interview with a UK website, Hillary Clinton contradicts her earlier story about how she came to represent a child rapist.  Hillary now claims she had no choice in representing the 41-year-old who raped a 6th grader, a story which is at odds with the one she told an interviewer three decades ago.

Tapes Reveal Hillary Clinton Discussing Her Defense Of Child Rapist.  A newly unearthed audio recording reveals Hillary Clinton engaging in a candid discussion of a case involving a man she defended who had been accused of raping a 12 year-old girl in 1975.  The recording is of an interview with Clinton in which she tells an Arkansas journalist how she obtained a plea bargain for the accused rapist, despite her indication that she knew he was guilty.

The Hillary Tapes.  Newly discovered audio recordings of Hillary Clinton from the early 1980s include the former first lady's frank and detailed assessment of the most significant criminal case of her legal career:  defending a man accused of raping a 12-year-old girl.  In 1975, the same year she married Bill, Hillary Clinton agreed to serve as the court-appointed attorney for Thomas Alfred Taylor, a 41-year-old accused of raping the child after luring her into a car.  The recordings, which date from 1983-1987 and have never before been reported, include Clinton's suggestion that she knew Taylor was guilty at the time.

Why Was Hillary Clinton Laughing About Helping Suspected Child Rapist?  It's hardly unusual for a criminal trial lawyer to gossip about a courtroom triumph on behalf of a less than admirable client, often with gallows humor and over drinks after a hard day's work.  But it's highly unusual for a lawyer to boast and laugh about such a circumstance in an on-the-record interview with a journalist — and pretty much jaw-dropping when the lawyer is Hillary Rodham Clinton.

Totally Unworthy Liberal Icons.  When Hillary Clinton ran for senator of my state I researched her background to confirm if she was indeed the smartest woman in the world as she was being touted in the media by campaign promoters.  Hillary Clinton's true character surfaced upon this research which completely belied what her campaign was selling.  But they show that the pattern of lies, deceit, fabrications and unethical behavior was established long ago.  Not many Americans even know about her misadventures with the Rose law firm and Madison Guaranty Bank nor have they heard of her fortuitous and dubious cattle futures, Travelgate and Whitewater and other overlooked scandals involving the woman whom many are still touting as the next president of the United States.

Hillary's Chinese Espionage Problem.  Johnny Chung was born in Taiwan but living in Southern California when he was given $300,000 by Chinese Gen Ji of the Peoples Liberation Army (PLA) Military Intelligence because, "We like your president very much."  Among Chung's objectives in using the money were to go directly to Hillary Rodham Clinton and request:  A tour of the White House[,] Lunch at the White House Mess[,] A photo op with the First Lady[,] An invitation to attend the president's radio address. [...] It would be interesting to know who the CIA White House officer was reporting back to at Langley CIA HQ about all this.  Because the PLA money, laundered through Chung and given to Hillary Clinton, comprised a felony and the Agency should have made a criminal referral to the FBI and Department of Justice.

Hillary Milhous Clinton.  She and her husband probably trail behind them more baggage than even Nixon did.  He resigned before being impeached.  The Clintons brazened it through before President Clinton was finally impeached.  He was not convicted, however, and — almost miraculously if you can remember what even Democrats were saying about them — the Clintons continued their amazing political lives.  Though they acquired still more baggage. [...] Now with all her baggage trailing behind her, it is only a matter of time before Hillary Clinton is forced to rebrand herself.  All those years, dating back to Arkansas politics, will prove too much.

I'm Sick To Death Of Bill And Hillary.  [Scroll down]  Hillary herself has more baggage than could fit into Air Force One.  Perhaps the largest and most malodorous piece is the mysterious disappearance and reappearance of court-subpoenaed law-firm records belonging to her.  After going missing for years, they suddenly turned up in her book room on the third floor of the White House.  The FBI's fingerprint analysis of the billing records revealed only the prints of Hillary and White House lawyer Vince Foster, who had committed suicide under suspicious circumstances.  The records were needed to show the extent of Hillary's legal work for a savings and loan involved in fraud.

Clintons Enjoyed Friendly Relationship With Mosque Leader.  The Daily Caller recently reported that Bill Clinton sent a handwritten note on official stationery in March 2000 to Bassam Erstwani, the chairman of the board of the Dar Al-Hijrah Mosque in Falls Church, Virginia, in response to a letter from the chairman.  Clinton's note was released as part of a document dump by the Clinton presidential library.  The note was marked "THE PRESIDENT HAS SEEN 3-10-00."  "I'm interested in all these suggestions.  Let's follow up," Clinton said in the note, in which he also said that it would be good to have support from Muslims. Clinton signed the note "Bill."

Report: Hillary Clinton Accused GOP Staffers of Colluding with 'Extremists' on Internet.  On January 27, 1998, Hillary Clinton appeared on NBC's Today Show. During her interview with Matt Lauer, she claimed that a "vast right-wing conspiracy" had been trying to destroy her husband "since the day he announced for president."  That interview drew a lot of raised eyebrows and became a joke for years afterward.  Hillary's accusation became such a hot-button issue that Clinton's White House felt it had to defend itself and drew up a full 28-page report to "prove" that there was, indeed, a "vast right-wing conspiracy."

Hillary's glass jaw.  Do you remember Webb Hubbell, the McDougals, the missing Rose Law firm billing records, Travelgate, or Hillary's surprise acumen at high-risk commodities trading?  Super PACs and other groups will remind voters of all of these case studies of corruption if Hillary proceeds with a campaign.  Democrats are terrified of this likelihood, not because it points to Hillary's distant past, but because it helps illustrate her more recent corrupt behavior — and that of the elite political class she represents.

Major Democratic donor indicted over campaign contributions.  A hotel executive and Democratic fundraiser has pleaded guilty in New York to witness tampering and conspiracy to evade campaign finance laws.  Hampshire Hotels chairman Sant Singh Chatwal appeared Thursday in federal court in Brooklyn.  The candidates were not identified.  Chatwal, whose firm runs hotels around the world, had raised at least $100,000 for Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton's 2008 presidential campaign against Barack Obama.

Hotel Magnate Pleads Guilty to Campaign Finance Fraud.  Hotel magnate Sant Singh Chatwal, who has lavished campaign cash on everyone from Hillary Clinton to Mayor Bill de Blasio, pleaded guilty today in Brooklyn federal court to campaign finance fraud and witness tampering, U.S. Attorney Loretta Lynch announced.  Mr. Chatwal, 70, who runs a chain of luxury hotels and other companies, allegedly broke federal law by using straw donors — whom he called "conduits" — to make more than $180,000 in illegal campaign contributions to three candidates in an effort to gain access and influence federal regulations, according to a federal complaint.

Aide who accused Bill Clinton of groping her says 'Americans deserve better than the Clintons'.  Kathleen Willey was a Democratic fundraiser volunteering in the White House during Bill Clinton's presidency who claims the former president kissed and groped her inside a private study off of the Oval Office.  Now, with a potential presidential run by Hillary Clinton in the works, Willey has resurfaced to warn the American public about the 'dysfunctional' former first family.

The Hillary Riddle Begins to Unravel.  Winston Churchill once said that Russia "is a riddle wrapped in a mystery inside an enigma."  So is anything even remotely having to do with Bill and Hillary Clinton.  And just as with the Russians, that is intentionally so.  The Clintons go to great lengths to cover-up their cover-ups.

Clinton-era White House memo from Rose Law Firm adviser.  In a pair of stunning 1993 memos from the Clinton White House, advisers to Bill and Hillary Clinton railed against physicians for putting personal greed ahead of 'Hillarycare' medical insurance reform, and wrote that scheduled listening-session meetings with health care stakeholders were political exercises organized purely for show.

Hillary is sick. Of the media.  It was back on Jan. 27, 1998, that Hillary Clinton first used the phrase "vast right-wing conspiracy" to describe the attacks on her husband. [...] For Hillary, the Monica [Lewinsky] story was the last straw in what she firmly believed was a conservative conspiracy to get her husband.  And Hillary stuck to that belief even after she learned the truth about Bill and Monica.  After all, one or both of the Clintons had been accused of all sorts of ugly things in the preceding years:  Whitewater, being involved in the death of Vince Foster, controversial cattle futures trading, international drug smuggling through Mena, Ark., etc.

The many lies of Bill Clinton.  It was 10 years ago tomorrow that Clinton looked right into a TV lens — thus looking every American in the eye — and told us a bold-faced, despicable lie, the same one he had told under oath in a court case nine days earlier.  The earlier recitation of the lie led to Clinton being impeached, fined by trial court and stripped of his law license.  But it was the public lie, in its brazenness, that ought to make every American skeptical of every word Mr. Clinton says.

Clinton Family Loan Mystery.  Those of us old enough to recall the 1990s can remember presidential half-brother and pardon recipient Roger Clinton, as well as presidential brothers-in-law Tony and Hugh Rodham — all of whom were caught up in the pardon-gate controversy.  None of them has been seen much (or at all) during Sen. Hillary Clinton's presidential campaign, not without good reason.  I don't want to be too harsh, but let's just say they all firmly seem to fall into the Bill Carter mold of presidential siblings.

The Oil Connection:  It's interesting that Hillary Clinton not only was behind the formation of the oil-for-food program, but that it was a direct contact with an agent of Saddam that accomplished the task.  So, fast forward a few years.  Baghdad has fallen, the doors have been kicked open, and the oil-for-food program has become the oil-for-food scandal.  What seems amazing now is not only the extent of the corruption, but how little most Americans even know about it.  The left is often proud of its hatred for Enron and the $1.5 billion in corruption it represents.  Rightly so — but they so easily excuse nearly 40 billion in corruption in a single UN program.

Seeds of Destruction:  A huge scandal erupted when it became known that Mrs. Clinton's brothers, Tony and Hugh Rodham, had lobbied the president on behalf of criminals who then received presidential pardons or a sentence commutation from Mr. Clinton.  Tony Rodham helped get a pardon for a Tennessee couple that had hired him as a consultant and paid or loaned him hundreds of thousands of dollars.  Over the protests of the Justice Department, President Clinton pardoned the couple, Edgar Allen Gregory Jr. and his wife, Vonna Jo, who had been convicted of bank fraud in Alabama.  Hugh Rodham was paid $400,000 to lobby for a pardon of Almon Glenn Braswell, who had been convicted of mail fraud and perjury, and for the release from prison of Carlos Vignali, a drug trafficker who was convicted and imprisoned for conspiring to sell 800 pounds of cocaine.  Sure enough, in his last hours in office (when he issued a blizzard of pardons, many of them controversial), President Clinton agreed to the pardon for Braswell and the sentence commutation for Vignali.

1994 Redux:  Clinton Hasn't Changed A Bit.  The 1994 [health-care task force] was a debacle of biblical proportions for the Democratic party.  To win the presidency, everyone assumed Hillary Clinton would need to erase memories of her flawed leadership of that catastrophe.  And doing so would mean showing voters she had the capacity for a different kind of leadership, one based on openness to the private sector, appreciation for the complexity of the task, and policy flexibility — not 1990's style war-rooms and the promised destruction of opponents with differing views.

Hillary stranger than fiction.  I have no time for Obama, and I think he'd be a disastrous president.  But he's your ticket out if you're a Democrat who can't face the thought of giving your party to the Clinton mob for another decade.  And, evidently, quite a lot of Dems feel like that.

The Whitewater Proxy:  Hillary's and Bill's scandals have been the elephant in the primary room ever since she first signaled a run.  Yet up to now everyone has been too scared, or too loyal, or too weary to touch the ugly past.  Her Bosnia misspeak is now serving as proxy for all the truths about the Clintons' non-truths, allowing even liberals to break free from their Clinton dependence.

Remembering and then forgetting the Clintons:  [Upon leaving office, President] Clinton garnered unwanted publicity for a greedy duo of mini-scandals first, by lifting several thousands of dollars of White House furniture and his pursuance of a high-priced office in a palatial New York City high-rise.  Then there was his pardon of fugitive-financier Marc Rich, who had been on the run for evading millions of dollars in taxes and doing business with the Iranian government while it held American hostages. … Despite his assurances at the time to the contrary, the pardon had all the appearances of a quid pro quo.

Criminals, Clintons, Campaigns.  The news that Mrs. Clinton has accepted money from three criminals who were pardoned by Mr. Clinton in highly contentious circumstances — or, more accurately, two criminals and Mr. Deutch, who was on the point of being charged by the Justice Department when he was let off the hook — is sure to prove hugely embarrassing to Mrs. Clinton's campaign.

Judicial Watch scrutinizing controversial Clinton White House pardon.  Tom Fitton, president of Judicial Watch, filed a Freedom of Information Act request to obtain the official pardon application submitted to the Clinton White House on behalf of Marc Rich. … Rich fled the United States in 1983 to avoid prosecution on racketeering, wire fraud, and tax evasion charges.  He was one of about 140 individuals pardoned by Bill Clinton in the waning hours of his administration.

Clinton papers reveal donor, embargo ties.  With a large charitable donation in hand, Indonesian businessman Mochtar Riady flew to Little Rock to dine with first lady Hillary Rodham Clinton at a 1993 gala honoring her as an "Arkansan of the Year" at a time his company, a multibillion dollar banking conglomerate, was seeking an end to a 30-year trade embargo with Vietnam.

This article includes a long list of Clinton scandals.
Clinton bends the rules — when she can't break them.  America's chief domestic priority this year is to prevent Hillary Rodham Clinton's election as president of the United States.  Beyond her dreadful ideas, she shares her husband's allergy to the rule of law and the basic standards of fairness and honesty that most people expect of themselves.  Instead, the Clintons do whatever it takes to accomplish whatever they want.  And if normal conduct or even federal statutes interfere, they smash right through them.

With Friends Like These ...  It's not that we expect politicians to have squeaky-clean donor lists.  You try running for office without, at one point or another, taking money from someone you probably shouldn't.  Even Barack Obama, Mr. Clean, has Tony Rezko.  But the Frank Giustra-Kazakhstan-Uranium affair, blown open by The New York Times last week, serves as a reminder that the relationship between the Clintons and money has not always been lily-white.  Here, a guide to the unsavory characters who have been associated with Bill and Hillary Clinton.

Over the Top.  "He [Senator Obama] hasn't been able to find a way to be tough with a woman opponent," they say on TV.  But that's not it, or is only half the truth.  The other half is that it has long been agreed in the Democratic Party that one must not, one cannot, ever, refer to the long caravan of scandals that have followed the Clintons for 15 years.  "We don't speak of the Clintons that way."  But why not?  Everyone else does.

Landlord:  Clinton staff stiffed me on rent.  Rochester physician Terry Bennett said he rented a city building to people who worked for Sen. Hillary Clinton's presidential campaign — and skipped town without paying the bill.  Making matters worse, Bennett said, the 3,000-square-foot building at 236 Union St. was left trashed.  Campaign signs were left lying all over the place, he said.

The Editor says...
It is reminiscent of the way the Clintons left the White House in January 2001.

Let me refresh your memory about ...
Trashing the White House when Clinton's Staff Left.  White House officials yesterday [6/2/2001] released a list of damage they say was done by outgoing staffers of President Bill Clinton, including obscene graffiti in six offices, a 20-inch-wide presidential seal ripped off a wall, 10 sliced telephone lines and 100 inoperable computer keyboards.

Official GAO report:  Allegations of Damage During the 2001 Presidential Transition.

Departing Clinton Staff Trashed White House Like Never Before.  In 2001, the departing Clinton White House staff made quite a mess, according to [the GAO report]. … When news of this first came out in early 2001, Clinton apologists pointed the finger at previous adminsitrations, saying in effect, "They did it first!"  But the truth is that no administration in decades did as much damage as the Clinton team did on its way out the door.

Clinton Amnesia:  The colossal Clinton gall is matched only by the sure hand with which they manipulate events masterfully, in the face of the knowing contempt of the news media, the Democratic Party and lastly, of course, the American people.  Try and recall the actual Clinton Administration that seems to have disappeared from the collective memory.  Bill blessedly closed his sordid time in power with an appropriate and delightful flourish, pardoning one hundred and forty convicted felons at the last hour while Hillary and her minions stole White House furnishings and property.  They were, and are, beyond parody.

Senator Hillary Clinton:  "He that has ears to hear, let him hear."  If even a fraction of this information is true, it should be cause for alarm.

The Clintons' Terror Pardons:  On Aug. 7, 1999, the one-year anniversary of the U.S. African embassy bombings that killed 257 people and injured 5,000, President Bill Clinton reaffirmed his commitment to the victims of terrorism, vowing that he "will not rest until justice is done."  Four days later, while Congress was on summer recess, the White House quietly issued a press release announcing that the president was granting clemency to 16 imprisoned members of FALN.  What began as a simple paragraph on the AP wire exploded into a major controversy.

What Kind of "Experience"?  Whether in Arkansas or in Washington, Hillary Clinton has spent decades parlaying her husband's political clout into both money and power.  How did that benefit anybody but the Clintons?  For those people whose memories are short, go on the Internet and look up Whitewater, the confidential raw FBI files on hundreds of Republican politicians that somehow — nobody apparently knows how — ended up in the Clinton White House illegally. … It would be hard to find two people less trustworthy than the Clintons or with a longer trail of sleaze and slime.

Whitewater:  Years of legal trouble.  Whitewater.  The word symbolizes years of legal troubles for Hillary Rodham Clinton during her husband's presidency.  The scandal stoked a $52 million criminal investigation and offered moments of extraordinary spectacle, including the unprecedented grand jury appearance by a first lady.  "It's not a first that I'm particularly pleased about," she acknowledged at the time.

If Spitzer, Why Not Clinton?  [Scroll down] Bill Clinton, who admittedly committed perjury and obstruction of justice, ended up being a rock star.  It is well known that when you commit perjury or obstruction of justice, you will receive jail time, since these are acts that go to the very heart of our system of justice that is based on people telling the truth under oath.  Clinton, thanks to DNA and a girl who didn't bother going to a dry cleaner, was clearly guilty of both — perjury and obstruction of justice.  This is all not to mention his other crimes of a sexual nature.  Just ask Juanita Broaddrick and Kathleen Willey.

The Case Against Hillary Clinton:  What do you have to forget or overlook in order to desire that this dysfunctional clan once more occupies the White House and is again in a position to rent the Lincoln Bedroom to campaign donors and to employ the Oval Office as a massage parlor?  You have to be able to forget, first, what happened to those who complained, or who told the truth, last time. … In my opinion, Gennifer Flowers was telling the truth; so was Monica Lewinsky, and so was Kathleen Willey, and so, lest we forget, was Juanita Broaddrick, the woman who says she was raped by Bill Clinton.

Women in the Clinton era:  Abuse, intimidation and smears.  Here is Bill Clinton's legacy of mistreatment of women.  The common threads are that, almost to a woman:  (1) they had some vulnerability that he could exploit.  (2) they were victims of a smear campaign, and (3) there is an eerie similarity to the stories they tell of intimidation, threats, and burglaries of odd items, such as photographs and tapes.

Hillary donors slept in Lincoln bedroom.  Nearly one in five big-money contributors to Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton's presidential campaign, known as "Hillraisers," are the same donors who surfaced in a 1996 White House scandal involving sleepovers in the Lincoln Bedroom and other perks to help re-elect President Clinton.

Clinton Considers Giving Up Some Powers.  Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Rodham Clinton said Tuesday [10/23/2007] that if elected she would consider giving up some of the executive powers President Bush and Vice President Dick Cheney have assumed since taking office.

Clinton vows review of executive power.  Hillary Clinton would launch a policy review as president with an eye towards giving up some of the executive powers accumulated by George Bush, she tells Guardian America in an interview today. … Ms Clinton said the accumulation of executive power had put America into "new territory" because Mr Bush and the vice president had taken the view that were what previously extraordinary powers were now inherent powers that belonged to the White House.

Clinton's Executive Orders.  During his two terms as president, Bill Clinton averaged about one executive order each week.  By doing so, he was able to effectively legislate from the Oval Office.  He wrote executive orders to set aside large tracts of land as national monuments.  He wrote executive orders to restructure federalism.  He wrote executive orders adding "sexual orientation" to laws on federal hiring.  He wrote executive orders prohibiting federal contractors from hiring permanent striker replacements.  In other words, he exercised a legislative function:  he made laws.

Was that $100,000 profit from cattle futures a bribe? The big question, still, is whether Mrs. Clinton was, as she said, just well-advised and "lucky," or whether — via the filter of the futures markets — she took a fat bribe and then coolly lied about it.

Cattle Futures and Conflicts of Interest:  In 1979, Hillary Clinton's trades in cattle futures contracts generated criticism regarding conflict of interest and allegations of disguised bribery.  Her initial $1,000 investment generated $100,000 when she stopped trading ten months later.

Hillary Clinton's greatest hits:  Two months after commencing the Whitewater scheme, Hillary Clinton invested $1,000 in cattle futures.  Within a few days she had a $5,000 profit.  Before bailing out she earns nearly $100,000 on her investment.  Many years later, several economists will calculate that the chances of earning such returns legally were one in 250 million.

Lest We Forget — Hillary's $100K Cattle Scam.  The story intensified in April 1994, when the first couple was forced to pay an additional $14,615 in back taxes and interest after it was learned that the first lady had made more money on commodity trades than had been revealed to the public or to the IRS.

Is the bloom off the Rose Law Firm?  The Rose Law Firm became emblematic of the scandals that dogged Clinton and her husband, Bill, while he was president:  Whitewater; the death of Vince Foster, a Rose partner who became deputy White House counsel; and the missing billing records from Rose that were discovered in Hillary Clinton's book room at the White House.

Obama's HHS Nominee Proved Her Loyalty to Clinton by Digging Through a Dead Man's Trash.  In July 1995, Burwell (then Sylvia Mathews) was one of several key aides questioned by the Senate Whitewater Committee regarding the death of deputy White House counsel Vince Foster. [...] Under questioning, Sylvia Mathews and her colleagues denied impeding a police investigation into Foster's death after his body was found in a northern Virginia park.  According to the New York Times, Mathews testified "in laborious detail about what she had found in Mr. Foster's garbage on the night he died."  That experience may come in handy as she prepares to oversee the implementation of Obamacare.

Did someone mention Vince Foster?

Clinton's records vanished after warning of 'very serious' problems.  Hillary Rodham Clinton's Rose Law Firm billing records, found in the White House residence in January 1996 two years after they had been subpoenaed by government regulators, disappeared shortly after the first lady was warned that the firm's billing problems were "very serious" and the then-ongoing Whitewater investigation could result in criminal charges, newly obtained records show.  More than 1,100 pages of grand jury testimony ... say Mrs. Clinton knew considerably more about the firm's billing problems and their potential ramifications than she publicly acknowledged at the time.

The Clintons' Coal-Gate:  Hillary Clinton calls President Bush's talks with the Saudis about increasing oil output "pathetic."  But it's not as pathetic as her co-president husband locking up billions of tons of clean coal in exchange for political contributions.

Democratic Chickens Coming Home to Roost.  When she says she is more "experienced," she is either lying outright, or counting her time as Arkansas' and America's First Lady.  But that's nonsense.  First Lady is not an elected post, or any post.  Clinton was simply the wife of a privileged white male.  Besides, what was her experience as First Lady?  Was it the experience of Travelgate, in which she engineered the malicious prosecution of White House Travel Office director Billy Dale, which ruined him financially, just so she could turn the office into a cash cow for her friends from Arkansas, socialist TV producer Harry Thomason.  Or Filegate, wherein Hillary collected and kept FBI files on hundreds of Republican officials and staffers whom she considered political enemies?

How Hillary Clinton sicced the FBI on the White House travel office.  As speculation that former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton will run for President in 2016 heats up, the question that must be asked is:  Hillary 2016, prison or POTUS?  Recently, the Washington Free Beacon reported on statements found in archival documents by one of Hillary Clinton's closest friends, Diane Blair, painting a portrait of Hillary as a ruthless First Lady.  Without question ruthless is an accurate description except not only is Hillary ruthless, she is lawless.

Hillary's Smear Campaign.  During the Whitewater investigation, Independent Counsel Kenneth Starr investigated the legal work performed by Mrs. Clinton, then a partner in the Rose law firm, on behalf of Jim McDougal and his bank, Madison Guaranty.  Mr. Starr believed that Mrs. Clinton helped orchestrate the fraudulent land deal known as Castle Grande. [...] In the end, no charges were brought against Mrs. Clinton because there was insufficient evidence to prove that she knowingly assisted anyone in the perpetration of a fraud.

Once-secret memos question Clinton's honesty.  The summaries said Mrs. Clinton billed Madison for 60 hours of legal work, spoke with Madison officials about the Castle Grande project on 14 occasions, discussed legal matters with Madison's owners — the McDougals — 16 times, had 28 meetings with Rose firm lawyers on Madison, and met with state regulators about Madison at least twice.  At the time, Madison was seeking help from Mrs. Clinton's Rose Law Firm in Little Rock to fend off state and federal regulators concerned that the thrift was insolvent. … The summary is all that remains, since the original Rose firm billing records for Madison disappeared.

Trustee:  Sen. Clinton's brother owes debts to carnival operators.  Tony Rodham, the brother of Democratic presidential contender Sen. Hillary Clinton, is being asked again to appear in court on debts owed to a Tennessee carnival operator whose owners received presidential pardons from President Bill Clinton.

Pardon Scandal Still Looms for Sen. Clinton's Brother.  A court-appointed bankruptcy trustee asked a federal judge this week to schedule a new court date in a case against Tony Rodham, the brother of Sen. Hillary Clinton, D-N.Y., accused of failing to repay $109,000 in loans from a carnival company whose owners received controversial pardons issued by President Bill Clinton in the last hours of his presidency.

Update:
Clinton's Brother Settles Lawsuit.  A lawsuit accusing Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Rodham Clinton's brother of failing to repay debts to a Tennessee carnival operator has been settled.  Tony Rodham was accused of failing to repay $107,000 plus interest to the bankrupt estate of Edgar Allen Gregory Jr. and his wife, Vonna Jo, both of whom received a presidential pardon in 2000.

Pardons reemerge as issue in Clinton run.  Six years ago, the launch of Hillary Clinton's career in the US Senate was marred by allegations that her brothers had received payments from people pardoned by President Bill Clinton in the waning months of his presidency.  Now, in the wake of the launch of her presidential campaign, the pardon controversy has reemerged in an obscure court case in which Senator Clinton's brother Tony is battling an order to repay more than $100,000 he received from a couple pardoned by President Clinton.

The Editor says...
The list of people pardoned by President Clinton is not difficult to find.  [1] [2] [3] [4]

Hillary Clinton's Pardongate Scandal:  When you fast forward today and consider the areas where a huge segment of Americans have reservations about another Clinton presidency, the appearance of and real improprieties surrounding everything from Whitewater, the Lincoln Bedroom, Paula Jones, Vince Foster, cattle futures, the Rose Law Firm, Monica Lewinsky and 'Pardongate' provides the opportunity to resurface Senator Clinton's connection to a very dark episode in American politics.

Hill's Brother a Deadbeat.  Hillary Rodham Clinton's youngest sibling is a deadbeat dad who owes tens of thousands of dollars in child support to his politically connected ex, The Post has learned.  In a disclosure that could prove embarrassing for his sister, Anthony Rodham has stiffed his former wife, Nicole Boxer, out of $75,000 in child support, as well as $55,000 in alimony, a source close to the case said.

Hillary's Spousal Albatross.  Hillary Clinton doesn't have the luxury Al Gore did of choosing to dump Bill Clinton on the presidential campaign trail.  She's stuck with him, for better or for worse.  And if she becomes president, so is America.  People always questioned Gore's judgment to cut his umbilical cord from Mother Bill … But in Hillary's case, it's obviously more complicated.  Bill will not just have been a past president with very close ties to President Hillary, should she win.  He won't merely be with her in the White House.  He will be in her space.

A Shower of Gifts for Hillary and Bill:  What's most revealing here is not the gifts themselves — although it is hard to picture one adult giving another a sofa — but how horrified people were at the very suggestion that Hillary would lean on supporters to furnish her house.  The Clintons have long dismissed the criticism of those in the vast right-wing conspiracy whom they don't respect.  But how do you dismiss the views of those you do respect — who insist you would never sink so low, until they are silenced by proof of your grasping?



"Hillary was not in a mood to walk away from her cherished lifestyle simply because the Twenty-second Amendment forced her husband from office on January 20, 2001.  She took the trouble to register with luxury retailers, as though she were about to become an impoverished new bride.  This sent clear signals to donors as to the kinds of items they needed to buy if they expected to stay in Hillary's good graces.  No first lady had ever been quite so crass."
— Barbara Olson,    
The Final Days: The Last Desperate Abuses of Power by the Clinton White House,    
Regnery Publishing, Inc. 2001, pp. 63-64.    



Hillary Was Key Partner in Clinton Attack Machine.  With the paperback version of Clinton's memoirs set to hit bookstores in early June, World Ahead Publishing has unveiled Their Lives:  The Women Targeted by the Clinton Machine by Candice E. Jackson. Billed as the stories that Clinton left out of My Life, Jackson uncovers the trail of bribes, threats and intimidation that Clinton's inner circle leveled at the women who got in their way.

She blasts Bush over Libby case, but the Clintons abused the power.  The list of investigations, allegations and a few convictions during the Clinton administration was so long and tangled that the cases now morph into a fog.  Distinctions among Travelgate and Whitewater and FileGate and GiftGate and the $100,000 commodities windfall get lost, with only Monica and the stained blue dress forever vivid.  Now and then, that fog is pierced by something that reminds us what a grubby time it was.  The case of Lewis (Scooter) Libby does that.

Do the Clintons Now Support Jail Time For Perjurers?  Former President Bill Clinton and Senator Hillary Clinton are absolutely outraged that President Bush granted executive clemency to Scooter Libby, recently convicted of making false statements under oath.  They obviously believe that Libby should serve his thirty month sentence.  Does that mean that they now think that perjurers should go to jail?  Or have they simply forgotten about Bill Clinton's own plea agreement in the last hours of his presidency — for making false statements under oath?  Some people would call that perjury.

A Remembrance Of Pardons Past.  Presidential candidate Hillary Clinton made this comment, dripping in irony:  "This commutation sends the clear signal that in this administration, cronyism and ideology trump competence and justice."  Is this the same Democratic Party that shamed the White House for eight years in the 1990s with its illicit activity and lying?

Of pardons, perjury, and hypocrisy.  Compare the behavior of Democrats on Bush's pardon for perjury against their behavior concerning Clinton's own perjury and you will find hypocrisy.  Just for fun, add into the mix Clinton's own pardons and you get rank hypocrisy.

Unpardonable Hypocrisy:  The Clintons aren't the only Democrats who've attacked the president for the Libby commutation.  But they're surely the most hypocritical.  "This commutation sends the clear signal that in this administration, cronyism and ideology trump competence and justice," wailed Hillary.  Hmm.  Back in 2001, when her husband left office by extending outright pardons and/or clemency to 176 people, all she had to say about it was:  "It's a presidential decision."  Apparently, Bill Clinton's pardon of his own brother (a cocaine-trafficking conviction), as well as of folks who'd paid Hillary's brother tens of thousands of dollars for presidential clemency, had nothing to do with "cronyism."

Bill Clinton blasts commutation of Libby's prison sentence.  Former President Bill Clinton blasted his successor's decision to spare former White House aide I. Lewis "Scooter" Libby from prison, telling Iowa radio listeners that Libby's case differed from his own administration's pardon controversy. … Bush administration officials, he said, "believe that they should be able to do what they want to do, and that the law is a minor obstacle."

Allow me to refresh your memory...
The Long List of Pardons Granted by President Clinton.

Bill Clinton's old pardons roil 2008 campaign.  It's a blast from the past that Hillary Clinton could probably do without.  Just as Bill Clinton takes a higher profile in his wife's 2008 White House bid, a string of controversial pardons he granted in the last hours of his presidency is back in the news. … Clinton's last-minute 2001 pardons of some 140 people included financier Marc Rich, who fled the US after being indicted for tax evasion and whose ex-wife was a major donor to Democratic causes.  He also pardoned several people close to him, including his half-brother Roger, a convicted cocaine distributor.

Hillary gets her groove on.  It's been a hellish 4 months for Hillary R. Clinton.  She began the race for the presidency, a goal she has been obsessed with since hitching up with boy wander Bill, as if it were her right.  She paid for her claim by putting up with roaming Bill's circus of women, often corralled and marshaled before him by the Arkansas Highway Patrol.  She endured and shared in escapades including hidden commodity and real estate scams, accusations and denials of rape, and drug dealing.  That was BEFORE Hillary rose to co-presidency.

Clinton Fights to Keep Impeachment Taboo.  With a swift response to attacks from a former supporter last week, advisers to the New York Democrat offered a glimpse of their strategy for handling one of the most awkward chapters of her biography.  They declared her husband's impeachment in 1998 — or, more accurately, the embarrassing personal behavior that led to it — taboo, putting her rivals on notice and all but daring other Democrats to mention the ordeal again.

[Attention all Republican strategists:  Hillary just told everyone where her weakness lies.]

Siege Mentality:  The Clintons find themselves victimized and under siege.  The presidency is being stolen from them.  The press is out to get them.  They deride elites and champion the masses.  They live in a constant state of emergency.  But they will endure any humiliation, ride out any crisis, fight on even when fighting seems hopeless.  That might sound like a fair summary of how Bill and Hillary Clinton have viewed the past five months.  But it also happens to describe what, until now, was the greatest ordeal of the Clintons' almost comically turbulent political careers:  impeachment.

The cut-rate pursuit of power:  [Hillary is] not just a frontrunner and a woman, but half of a power couple who may finally be required to pay for the excess baggage, both his and hers.  The former first lady is the most exposed candidate in the race, and the least known.  Despite the endless revelations of scandal and sharp dealing, we've never gotten to the bottom of "Wifewater," her financial killings in the commodities markets or the whereabouts of the lost records that suddenly and inexplicably showed up in the living quarters of the White House.

Hillary's Purpose Driven Drivel:  Listening to liberal politicians attempt to speak about Biblical Christianity is something akin to quizzing porn stars about the finer points of acting. … Would anyone who has tolerated serial adultery, first hand accounts of rape and sexual assault against other women, and an infantile like obsession with never being criticized call their "family" (i.e. the philanderer she's married to and bore a child with) a blessing?

Two Cheers for Obama.  [Scroll down]  Add Clinton's staggering tactlessness to her thirst for funny money (e.g., disgraced fundraisers Norman Hsu, Charlie Trie, Johnny Chung), missing legal documents, abused FBI personnel files, politically motivated IRS audits, stolen antiques, and the multifarious wrongdoing that defined the Clinton White House.  Obama has spared America another four to eight years of official lawlessness.  For this he merits abundant applause.

Axelrod Playbook Flashback: Obama Demands Clinton Release Tax Returns.  FROM ABC NEWS - Feb 7, 2008:  Sen. Barack Obama called on his rival Sen. Hillary Clinton to release her recent income tax returns — a move the Clintons have long resisted.  Strapped for campaign cash, Clinton announced this week that she loaned her presidential committee $5 million of her own personal funds, but it was not immediately clear how she came by that much money.

The Clinton Library

The Clinton Library is important for at least two reasons:  It is the vault where a potentially damaging paper trail from the 1990s can be hidden away, despite the best efforts of investigators and journalists.  More importantly, it is apparently being used as a means of funneling unlimited amounts of money into the Clinton [re]election campaign.

Secrets of The William J. Clinton Foundation.  Chicago bankruptcy lawyer William Brandt Jr. pledged $1 million for the Clinton library in May 1999, at the same time the Justice Department was investigating whether he'd lied about a Clinton fundraising event.  The Clinton DOJ cleared him a few months later. … A major investor in cellular firm NextWave — Bay Harbour Management — pledged $1 million in 1999, when NextWave was waiting to see if the Clinton FCC would allow it to keep its cellular licenses.  NextWave didn't immediately get its licenses, and Bay Harbour never made good on its pledge.  And let's not forget the $450,000 contribution from Denise Rich, which was followed by Mr. Clinton's pardon of her fugitive husband, Marc Rich.

The Clinton library's secret files.  A trove of Clinton White House records long processed for release remains hidden from public view at the Clinton Presidential Library in Little Rock — even though the legal basis initially used to withhold them expired more than a year ago. [...] Under the Presidential Records Act, such records can be withheld for up to 12 years after a president leaves office.  However, at the 12-year mark, those broad restrictions fall away and the once-secret presidential papers are generally subject to disclosure.  For the Clinton files, that milestone came and went in January 2013.

Photos from Clinton Presidential Library Link Hillary Clinton to Clinton Presidential Pardons.  Judicial Watch … researchers obtained 34 photos from the Clinton Presidential Library of Hillary Rodham Clinton, then-President Bill Clinton and Grand Rabbi David Twersky at a White House meeting during which the Grand Rabbi and other community leaders allegedly lobbied the Clintons to commute the jail sentences of four Hasidic men convicted of stealing $30 million in government education aid.  The meeting took place in December 2000, just after the New York based Hasidim sect delivered 1,400 votes to Hillary Clinton's Senate 2000 campaign and only 12 to her opponent Rick Lazio.

Clinton Library Is Hillary's Campaign Springboard.  If the opening of Bill Clinton's presidential library had the feel of a campaign event, that's because that's just what it was.

Clinton Library Won't Release Berger Documents.  The William Jefferson Clinton Presidential Library will not make available to the public the documents that former National Security Advisor Sandy Berger illegally took from the National Archives in 2003.  A letter from the library said the total 502 pages from the Millennium Alert After Action Review (MAAR) are "restricted in their entirety," under federal law and that the documents are "classified in the interest of national defense or foreign policy."

Hillary Clinton Arkansas Papers Unreleased.  It's unlikely that Arkansas papers on Hillary Rodham Clinton's years as the state's first lady will be released before the 2008 election, says the director of the Little Rock library that holds Bill Clinton's gubernatorial files.

Who Was Hillary Clinton?  Hillary Clinton is running for President based in large part on her experience, especially her eight years as first lady.  So it is revealing that she and her husband don't want the media and others to have ready access to the records that might tell us a good deal more about that 1990s "experience."  We're referring to the controversy over records at the William J. Clinton Presidential Library, which opened in 2004.  At the time, Mrs. Clinton promised that "everything's going to be available."

Papers?  I Don't See Any Papers.  When author Sally Bedell Smith was researching her new book about Bill and Hillary Clinton's White House years, she flew to Little Rock to visit the one place she thought could be an invaluable resource:  the new William J. Clinton Presidential Library.  Smith was hoping to inspect records that could shed light on what role the First Lady played in her husband's administration.  But Smith quickly discovered the frustrations of dealing with a library critics call "Little Rock's Fort Knox."

Clinton Library Has Responded to UFO Inquiries — Little Else.  Under the Presidential Records Act, presidential records are public records.  But many are complaining about the Clinton library's lack of progress in making relevant records available to the public.  The library opened in 2004, and the records became subject to the Freedom of Information Act in January 2006.

Clinton Library Answers UFO Theorist, Not USA Today.  Even though it says it processes Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) requests on a first-come-first-serve basis, the William Jefferson Clinton Presidential Library has answered multiple requests related to Unidentified Flying Objects made in late February 2006 but not any of the requests made a month earlier by USA Today.

Clinton Library Got Funds From Abroad.  Bill Clinton's presidential library raised more than 10 percent of the cost of its $165 million facility from foreign sources, with the most generous overseas donation coming from Saudi Arabia, according to interviews yesterday [12/14/2007].

How Much Information Can You Really Get From the Clinton Library?  Newsweek reports the national archives says barely one-half of one percent of the 78 million pages of documents and 20 million e-mails stored at the library are open to the public.  Nearly 300 Freedom of Information requests are pending for Clinton documents — and an archives spokeswoman says it is hard to predict if any of the material will be released before next year's election.

Researchers and journalists are finding it hard to get papers out of Clinton's Presidential Library.  Among the documents requested … detailed files on Filegate, Travelgate, Whitewater, Monica Lewinsky, the pardons scandal and even back-and-forth about Clinton's 2000 Senate bid.  Sixteen months after the library started accepting applications, no major request for sensitive documents pertaining to Clinton's first-lady years have been released.

Why We're Touring the Clinton Library:  Like far too many women in this country, all three of us have experienced the crime of sexual assault and the violation of sexual harassment by men in powerful positions.  Each of us has battled with the shame, humiliation, and fear of coming forward to report the assault.  Each of us has worried about how this sexual harassment and assault will affect our careers.  Two of us, however, suffered this kind of experience at the hands of a United States president.

The Saga of the First Lady Files:  Word that nearly 2 million pages of documents related to Hillary Rodham Clinton's time as first lady could remain locked up until after next year's election produced the predictable catcalls among critics suspecting coverup.  But it raises the broader, unprecedented question of how someone's service as first lady should be evaluated in terms of her qualifications to be president in the first place.

Hillary, Under Lock and Key.  The authors of the "Kids First" memo were, of course, Hillary Clinton's staffers from the 1993 health-care task force.  Its discovery validated conservative arguments that the proposed S-CHIP expansion is an integral part the larger movement to nationalize health care.  The AAPS lawsuit successfully exposed this memo, as well as other key documents.  But as Judicial Watch's [Chris] Farrell points out, a great deal of Hillary's record as First Lady remains inaccessible to the public.

Clinton Presses for White House Papers.  Former President Clinton said Friday [11/02/2007] that a letter he wrote to the National Archives was to expedite release of his papers, not slow the process or hide anything as rivals are suggesting in criticism of his wife.  Hillary Rodham Clinton was quizzed during this week's Democratic presidential debate as to why correspondence between her and her husband from their White House years remained bottled up at the National Archives.

Clinton no open book on healthcare.  [Scroll down] But a big part of that history is being concealed.  Hundreds of pages of memos and correspondence involving the healthcare plan of the early 1990s have been withheld, leaving a gap in a historic period when Clinton undertook one of the most ambitious domestic policy forays ever attempted.  Some of the records kept from public view are memos from the early 1990s that White House aides wrote to Clinton about members of Congress, some of whom are still serving.

GOP issuing 'Clinton library cards'.  Republicans across the country are encouraging voters to sign up for a "Clinton library card," a publicity stunt to highlight the dispute over Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton's White House records.  The Democrats have been arguing over the issue since it surfaced during an Oct. 30 debate, and former President Bill Clinton has since said the debate question about the records kept by the National Archives was "breathtakingly misleading."

Clinton library a closed book.  Almost three years after the library's opening and nearly two years after the administration's archives became subject to federal open-records laws, only a small fraction of the archives has been opened to the public.  Virtually all of the 3 million pages of documents that detail the internal workings of the health-care task force that Hillary Clinton headed remain stored away in boxes, for example.

Several obstacles hold up release of Clinton records.  In her presidential campaign, Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton of New York argues that if elected she could hit the ground running, because her days as first lady prepared her for the spotlight and the rigors of the Oval Office.  The voluminous records of former President Bill Clinton's administration would seem to be a great source for proving those claims.  The trouble is, many of the documents haven't been released.

2,600 Pages of Clinton Records Withheld.  The National Archives is withholding from the public about 2,600 pages of records at President Clinton's direction, despite a public assurance by one of his top aides last month that Mr. Clinton "has not blocked the release of a single document."  The 2,600 pages, stored at Mr. Clinton's library in Arkansas, were deemed to contain "confidential advice" and, therefore, "closed" under the Presidential Records Act, an Archives spokeswoman, Susan Cooper, told The New York Sun yesterday [12/18/2007].

Archivists block release of Clinton papers.  Federal archivists at the Clinton Presidential Library are blocking the release of hundreds of pages of White House papers on pardons that the former president approved, including clemency for fugitive commodities trader Marc Rich.  That archivists' decision, based on guidance provided by Bill Clinton that restricts the disclosure of advice he received from aides, prevents public scrutiny of documents that would shed light on how he decided which pardons to approve from among hundreds of requests.

Some Clinton Pardon Papers Still Sealed.  The Clinton Presidential Library … released 2,830 pages of documents this week on pardons President Bill Clinton considered for Rich and others during his last months in office.  But the library withheld another 1,114 pages that archivists said would disclose confidential discussion of advice the former president received from advisers or would violate someone's personal privacy.

The Clintons' Records:  So it turns out that — in the middle of a desperate primary battle — the Clintons are withholding from the public documents from the William Jefferson Clinton presidential library.  This was denied back in December, when our roving national correspondent, Josh Gerstein, reported that about 2,600 pages of documents were being withheld at Mr. Clinton's direction, despite assurances from the former president's office that he "has not blocked the release of a single document from his library."

Hide and seek.  The campaign manager for Sen. Barack Obama has a point.  David Plouffe wants Hillary Clinton to release her income tax returns for the last several years and couple that with a speedier process for releasing papers from the Clinton White House years.  That's so voters will be able to judge whether Mrs. Clinton's claims of experience are justified by what she says she did as a virtual "co-president."  Mr. Plouffe told reporters last week that Mrs. Clinton is "one of the most secretive politicians in America today."  Who would disagree, other than Mrs. Clinton?

Even ABC News wonders...
The Clinton Tax Returns:  What's the Holdup?  After weeks of intense pressure, and more than a year after announcing her presidential candidacy, Sen. Hillary Clinton has offered little explanation for why she has delayed releasing the tax returns made public by most other Democratic presidential candidates in recent years.

The Clinton Runaround:  Have you ever been to a government office to pick up a document — your driver's license, say — only to be sent to another window, where the clerk sends you to another window, where a clerk sends you back to the first to start all over again?  That's what it feels like these days asking Bill and Hillary Clinton about their White House records.

Peace and Bitterness:  The Clintons are resisting the disclosure of a document that could help clarify the New York senator's claims that she was "instrumental" in Northern Ireland peacemaking.  The document's unlikely author:  Chelsea Clinton.  As a Stanford University senior in 2001, the former First Daughter wrote a 150-page thesis on the subject.  Her faculty adviser, Prof. Jack Rakove, has said that Chelsea spoke with her father "at some length" about the negotiations.  But the Clinton camp has declined to make it public.

Fishy Way of Sheiking the Money Tree.  [Scroll down] So how much of Bill's earnings came from Burkle really come from the Emir's petrodollars?  And what does Bill bring to Yucaipa?  A rolodex of contacts made while he was president, and nothing else.  By the way, this is the same Emir who aggressively boycotts Israel and has been cited for human rights violations by the State Department.  How much did Bill get from the Emir and what did he do for it?  The tax returns don't say and the Clintons aren't talking.

The Clinton library's sanitized history.  The description of his impeachment in Bill Clinton's new presidential library beats anything I've ever seen at a supposedly historical exhibit.  Its flawless Newspeak brings to mind the airbrushed prose of the Late Great Soviet Encyclopedia, in which any embarrassing images would be dutifully erased in successive annual editions.

Detractors gear up to build Counter Clinton Library.  A group pledging to build the Counter Clinton Library in Little Rock is moving forward with its plans this year for a rebuttal to the Clinton Presidential Center despite fund-raising delays.

Bill Clinton Never Balanced A Budget And Never Ran A Surplus.  On Friday [9/30/2011] Former President Bill Clinton spoke at the dedication of a bridge at his Presidential library.  During his address he complained that Republicans try to take too much credit for his welfare reform legislation and for balancing the budget.  The two parties can argue about who was behind welfare reform, but no one deserves credit for balancing the budget.  The truth is the United States federal budget was not balanced in any of Bill Clinton's eight years as President.  Not once!

Hillary's college thesis

Another Clinton Cover Up Exposed.  Recently made available for public viewing, Hillary Clinton's controversial college thesis was for years ordered sealed by the Clinton White House to keep her Marxist and socialist views from becoming public.  The 92-page document paints a favorable picture of the radical leftwing community organizer Saul Alinsky, who Hillary refers to as having a "compelling personality" and "exceptional charm."

Hillary's Secret Thesis Reveals Socialist Thinking.  Well, it is finally available to the public, fortunately in time for the public to avoid making the huge mistake of electing Hillary.  By the directive of President Bill Clinton, Hillary's senior thesis was sealed; the only time this has ever been done in the history of Wellesley College.  The reason it was hidden away?  It reveals Hillary's Socialist/Communist philosophy and sympathies.

Hil's College Thesis Reveals Her Mind.  The thesis' title, "There is Only the Fight … An Analysis of the Alinsky Model," exposes Clinton's strong ideological attachment to her most influential mentor, Saul Alinsky.  Reading this work makes it clear why she had to remove it from public view, for Alinsky, who died in 1972, was a radical social activist who preached grass-roots organizing and intense, confrontational politics.

Hillary's Thesis:  The Village Needs an Enemy.  She titled the paper, written to fulfill her Bachelor of Arts degree at Wellesley College, "There is Only the Fight."  It praises the work of radical activist Saul Alinsky, a man who epitomized a self-interested no-holds barred campaign style that Hillary has emulated in later years.  Clinton's savvy-but-ruthless politics, including the "politics of personal destruction" she so often condemns but more often practices, seem rooted in Alinsky's famous rules for radicals.

"There is only the Fight".  Hillary Clinton has a written life plan, but there have been only two copies available to the public — until now.  Written in 1969, and kept under lock and key during her years as First Lady, Hillary's Wellesley College senior thesis has only been readable in person at the campus library and in a single microfilm copy made available to individual researchers on inter-library loan.  Clinton lawyers have previously blocked people who sought to make it public.

Here it is...
"There is only the fight":  Hillary Clinton's 1969 Thesis from Wellesley College.

Hillary's Choice:  Political Power and Alinsky.  Many questioned whether Hillary's tears were real or contrived.  They should read Hillary's 1969 Wellesley College Senior thesis.  Kept under lock and key during her years as First Lady, Hillary's Wellesley College senior thesis has until last summer only been readable in person at the campus library and in a single microfilm copy made available to individual researchers on inter-library loan.

Obama, Hillary and Alinsky's Tactics:  The emergence of a racial tinge to the Democratic Party nomination fight was all but inevitable, given both Hillary Clinton's and Barack Obama's training as disciples of Saul Alinsky.  Hardball tactics right out of Rules for Radicals provide perspective for understanding the unfolding battle.  Saul Alinsky, the hero of bloodless socialist revolution in America, was a master at explaining how to patiently use whatever weapons one has to bring about the transfer of power from the Haves to the Have Nots.

Saul Alinsky:  the Puppet Master.  Saul Alinsky, who died in 1972, at the age of 63, was a Chicago Marxist.  Among his many books was one titled "Rules for Radicals," in which he explained to his acolytes, "The most effective means are whatever will achieve the desired results."  It took Alinsky 11 words to paraphrase Karl Marx's far more succinct "The ends justify the means."  Alinsky, by the way, dedicated that particular book to Lucifer, whom he coyly referred to as "the first radical."

Rubber-Stamp Approval Slips Over Hil's Chasms of Conflicts.  "The (William J.) Clinton Foundation exists as a temptation for any foreign entity or government that believes it could curry favor through a donation," cautioned Sen. Richard Lugar of Indiana.  "It also sets up potential perception problems with any action taken by the secretary of state in relation to foreign givers or their countries...."  Therefore, he concluded, in a sharp reversal of his own logic, "I believe that every member of this committee will seek ways to support Senator Clinton's work as secretary of state."  Huh?

Rules for Radicals:  A Blurred Vision.  Saul Alinsky's book "Rules for Radicals," first published in 1971, has been read and assimilated by a number of those who espouse a Far Left agenda.  Our current Secretary of State, Hillary Clinton, wrote her senior thesis on Alinsky while at Wellesley College.  The following excerpt is from that paper.  "Much of what Alinsky professes does not sound 'radical.'  His are the words used in our schools and churches, by our parents and their friends, by our peers."  Perhaps in your world, Madam Secretary — certainly not in mine.
