Questions have been raised over financial dealings within the Clinton family charity that may cause problems for Hillary Clinton´s possible 2016 presidential run. New reports have revealed that the Clinton Foundation has been ´in the red´ for years even though the charity has raised hundreds of millions of dollars each year, showing the high cost of running the worldwide charity. Former President Bill Clinton called in a team of lawyers to help examine the charity´s financial standing over a year ago and they drew some unsettling conclusions. A scathing article in The New York Times tells how the ´rotating board
This won´t hurt her at all. 1) This is too complex for low-information voters, 2) Democrat entitlement voters think republicans will take away their government handouts, and 3) Hillary has become a folk hero to a large cult of far left liberals.
If: Whitewater, bimbo eruptions, 900 FBI files, Billy Dale and the travel office, Chinese campaign money, Vince Foster, Rose Law firm billing records, I don´t recall, vast right wing conspiracy, Benghazi, etc., didn´t hurt her....
Makes me wonder if, in fact, they have now seen the problems with her and, since they can´t possibly allow a Republican President, even if she was the best choice, they realize that Hillary might be the worst thing to ever happen to Democrat Presidential Politics.
That would be, not our current incompetent, lazy, corrupt and racist black president (which they bear tremendous responsibility for getting elected) who has set back race relations and the cause of blacks everywhere, but an incompetent and corrupt woman, who would make women politicians look like incompetent weaklings, fools, liars, and greedy losers. After all, these unfailingly shallow people in the MSM classify people- and candidates - by the way they look. ("Clean and articulate" Obama with those "perfect creases"???)
You know, like Wendy Davis is a perfect Democrat candidate for Texas Governor-after all, she wears just adorable shoes!
They don´t realize that their beliefs are the problem. Maybe they have a candidate in the wings who is cuter than Hillary....(That could be almost anyone, of course....except Chelsea...)
I find it fascinating that someone has decided to attack at this time. And attack a woman who has been a failure her entire life and never really had any power. The damage done to this country was by her husband but only now, when she shows her intentions to run for potus, is someone attacking.
I´ll never forget the debate between Rick Lazio and Hillary. Rick tore her to pieces.
And then the press pilloried Lazio for being mean to a woman and being disrespectful to the First Lady. And that, my friends is exactly what will happen in 2016 if any Republican man runs against her. He will be vilified as a sexist.
The strategy is to get this out early. Never give a full explanation, then when the campaigning begins, say that you have addressed this before and never respond to questions asked. The lapdog media will never ask again and it will be a non-issue. However, if you put your dog in a crate and place it on top of your car, the media will continue to raise it as an issue decades later.
Hillary has done plenty of damage in her official capacity as SOS. Just ask Sean Smith´s mom. She will tell you Hillary lied to her face. Her son is dead but as frequently quoted, what difference, at this point, does it make? A more cold and calculating witch has not walked the face of this earth in a long time.
That Hillary Clinton is even mentioned as a possible presidential candidate is a scathing indictment of our country´s political culture and the quality of the voting pool. But, then again, we currently have Barry the Fraud.
I respectfully disagree with those who say this can´t hurt her. If played right, this could be fatal to her ambitions. Stealing from charities is an easy concept that everybody understands, and even LoFos have a moral compass. And I do not believe the cult of Hillary is large. If it were, she would have easily defeated a nobody named Barry Obama in 2008. The ammunition is there to destroy her. The question remains if her foes will have the guts to fully employ it.
All 25 preceeding Ldotters have made great and original phrasemaking statements too numerous to ID. Study each one! There is hope, and it is not too early, there is so much to re-tell of the Clinton Opera of murder, theft, obfuscation, massive lying. Remember, Billy Bob and Evita Clinton´s draft dodging, undercover CIA work, Whitewater, Madison Guaranty, massive bank fraud, extortions, multiple rapes, attacks, threats, beatings, cover-ups, break-ins, Gennifer Flowers, Beverly Nursing Homes Enterprises, The Rose Law Firm, bribery, thefts, Tyson Foods, Arkansas Development Finance Authority (ADFA), The Stephens Inc financial empire, Paula Jones, the longtime Riady family relationship, non-stop adultery, election fraud, secretive Mena Arkansas air field drug and arms smuggling, Bill´s buddy the "bond daddie" king & felon, Dan Lasater, cocaine charges, incidental drug running, insider trading, trading in cattle futures, paying the governor for privilege, endless money driven scams. AND THAT’S JUST IN ARKANSAS ! before our merry troupe of prankster/gangsters arrived in Washington DC and took over renting out rooms in the White House for big bribe bucks. The opera of these impeached co presidents in Washington is massive.
1) The NYT is NOT "going after" the Clintons. 2) None of the scandals during eight dark years was enough to bring down that Presidency 3) This "scandal" won´t make a dent in the Clinton´s armor 4) NYT will be solidly back in Clinton´s corner tomorrow.
With age is created a considerable amount of cynicism; given we are living in a time of lying, corruption, self-serving interests, greed, deceit, moral bankruptcy, lawlessness, despotism, religious fanaticism, terminal egoism, con artists, 3.50 mental defectives and hustlers et alii, it is a given that PIAPS, that self-same lying, corrupt, self-serving , greedy, deceitful, morally bankrupt, lawless, despotic, religious fanatic enabler, terminal egoist, con artist, 3.50 mental defective, and hustler without peer, will continue to be lauded, elevated and worshipped by the lying, corrupt, self-serving, greedy, deceitful, morally bankrupt, lawless, despotic, religious fanatical, terminally egoistic, con artists, 3.50 mental defectives, and hustlers et alii until "Rome" is truly ashes because..."What difference does it make?"
Conservatives didn´t do that #29. The second they discovered blank slate Obama, they dropped the Clintons like a hot brick. All Rush did was try to level the playing field a bit to keep Hillary in the game. The media did the dumping, not conservatives.
That is why the irony of articles trumpeting Hillary´s coronation as the nominee this time around is so amusing.
@31 And she´s not called ´Senator Flatware´ for nothing. White House: Rose Law Firm records, Mao Christmas ornaments, peeps can´t pass security tests, drugs in West Wing, among a myriad of other things. Someone should write a book about her. Where is it!
I don´t think that falling down the stairs again will make this one go away.
Sadly, when more scandals about Hillary Clinton appear, the mode of low expectations takes over. The list of dirt is so long and outrageous that any sense of decency is automatically nullified. That is what you expect from her and her husband, so it isn´t big news anymore.
The very fact that she is considering another Presidential run says a lot about the intelligence and morals of modern day America. I wish they would retire, move to another country, and mess up their lives.
This may not have been about Hill-err-ee-ass Herself nor Billyboobboob Klintoon hizzelf at all... it may have been merely an innoculation self-administered by none other than The Newd Dork Slimez.
At any time in the next __ X-number of years, the Slimez can point and say, "Look! We´re not in the tank for the Klintoonz! We went right after them with this massive front page expose!"
They may not even care much whether this helps, hurts or plays neutral for the Klintoon Gang of thieves, liars, perverts and rapists.
It´s all about the Newd Dork Slimez bottom line, doncha know? Gotta preserve that "aura of credibility" and the concept of political neutrality. For those who won´t laugh themselves to death contemplating that!
After all, The Pervert Party of Weiner, Spitzer, Filner, JFK, Billyboobboob, etc. ad infinitum, ad nauseum (think Edwards) needs a leading propaganda rag like the Slimez to put a patina of respectability upon their latest larceny and fraud.
That´s what this is all about. Screw the Klintoonz... and save The Pervert Party´s top spokes-liars... The Newd Dork Slimez.
Hillary can twist turn and swing from the rafters BUT she will not be elected. She can possibly get nominated before she hits the good old glass ceiling. Not enough men will vote for a woman and there aren´t enough crazy females to make it happen.
Those who vote for people like Hillary are not capable of understanding what harm power can do in the hands of the unworthy, the greedy and the evil. They will vote for her because she´s a woman (sort of) she´s a Clinton or she´s a familiar face on one of their favorite magazines.
I hope not a single person here believes for a second that facts and truth have any bearing whatsoever on who Democrats want to represent them, because they don´t. Democrats are secular, they have no use for God (other than those who claim to be Christian but embrace the world´s values) or God´s values. Without God, secularist have no values except what benefits them, their agenda and their wants. So they don´t know right from wrong. What they do know is what they believe benefits them... and they believe a Democrat benefits them and Republicans don´t. Because they embrace a false moral system and don´t know right from wrong, they fall prey to people like the Clintons and Obamas and all the other slick talking charlatans in Washington who tell them what they want to hear. America must wake up to truth or Hillary will be our next president and America will take another step toward the abyss.
Couldn´t happen to a worse person. Review the facts of her personal history and there is a great deal of bad stuff. Of course, "what difference does it make"., except to all those harmed, injured, killed, or damaged in one way or another, and their families. ( my opinion ).
A memorial that pays tribute to the tens of thousands of brave men who lost their lives in bombing raids over wartime Germany has again been ranked by Trip Advisor as London´s top landmark in the run up to Christmas. The Bomber Command Memorial in Green Park has beaten the likes of Big Ben and Buckingham Palace to the number one spot on the travel review site. Visitors from all over the world come to pay their respects to the 55,573 young Bomber Command crews who lost their lives during the Second World War.
A top lawyer at the Internal Revenue Service told congressmen quizzing him over the tea party targeting scandal ´I don´t recall´ a ´staggering 80 times in fill or partial response to the committees questions´, a letter revealed today. [Snip] The stinging letter from House Oversight Committee chair Rep. Darrell Issa and regulatory subcommittee chair Rep.

America is facing a wave of strikes by its fast-food workers on Thursday a day after Barack Obama warned that inequality in the USA had soared to the point that it now posed "a fundamental threat to the American dream". Low-paid workers in McDonalds, Kentucky Fried Chicken and other fast-food outlets in 100 cities across America were due to start rolling strikes to protest at the low level of America´s $7.25 (£4.45) federal minimum wage. The strikes are the latest part of a mushrooming publicity campaign for higher wages among those working so-called "McJobs", with fast-food restaurants seen as a
Mexican police have found a truck they suspect was stolen by common thieves while carrying a dangerous radioactive medical material that the United Nations said could provide an ingredient for a "dirty bomb". The truck was empty, but the radioactive material was found nearby, officials said. The truck was found on Wednesday close to where it was stolen outside Mexico City, said the official, who asked not to be identified in line with policy. The truck was stolen on Monday while it was taking cobalt-60 from a hospital in the northern city of Tijuana to a radioactive waste-storage centre, Mexican officials and the
The United Nations´ nuclear watchdog issued a warning on Wednesday after a truck carrying dangerous radioactive material that could be used in a dirty bomb was stolen in Mexico. The vehicle, carrying cobalt-60, a substance used for radiotherapy treatment to combat cancer, was stolen on Monday while transporting the load from a hospital in Tijuana to a radioactive waste storage centre. Mexican authorities were working to locate the material, which could not be used in a conventional nuclear weapon but could in theory be put in a dirty bomb--an explosive device which would spread the substance over a large area.

President Obama´s uncle has testified at his deportation hearing that he housed his famous relative for a few weeks when he was student at Harvard Law School. This statement contradicts earlier claims by the White House, which says that Barack Obama has never met his controversial uncle Onyango Obama. The 69-year-old half-brother of the president´s late father will be allowed to remain in the United States after a hearing at a Massachusetts Immigration Court on Tuesday afternoon. After listening to witnesses praise the liquor store owner´s high moral character from his friends and landlord, the immigration judge ruled that he
Joe Biden should not repeat "erroneous remarks" on China´s new air zone, Chinese state media warned, as the US vice-president arrived in Beijing.

His visit to Asia has been dominated by a row over China´s newly-declared air zone, which covers islands controlled by Japan.

It was a sleepless night for Cile Precetaj. The Albanian mother of three, who was bracing for deportation Tuesday morning, tossed and turned in bed all night. She had brief nightmares of checking the front window and seeing immigration agents parked in vans outside, waiting to pick her up. They never came. Late Tuesday afternoon, U.S. Immigration authorities announced that they had decided to review Precetaj’s case, which called for her to be deported at 10:30 a.m. that day. [Snip] “ICE is presently conducting a review of Ms. Precetaj’s case, therefore her removal is not imminent at this time,” said
Google has been playing both sides of Washington´s streets by making contributions to conservative political groups that have left-wingers seeing red, it emerged today. But the company is largely just looking out for itself. The tech giant´s grantees include Heritage Action for America, a tea party-oriented organization that some pundits regard as the main catalyst for October´s partial government shutdown. Another is Americans for Tax Reform, led by conservative anti-tax crusader--and liberal nemesis--Grover Norquist. The left-wing Center for Media and Democracy claims that although Google is ´supposedly guided by its "don´t be evil" motto,´ the normally reliably left-wing company has
The Obama administration says its healthcare.gov website is much improved and far less crash-prone, but cybersecurity experts warn that using it is an invitation to hackers and identity thieves. David Kennedy, a former NSA analyst whose company TrustedSec is hired by big companies to test the security of their computer systems, told CNBC that the Obamacare website is a worst-case online scenario. ´It´s really hard to go back and fix the security around it because security wasn´t built into it,´ Kennedy said. ´We´re talking multiple months to over a year to at least address some of the critical-to-high exposures on

President Obama will cast growing income inequality and a decline in economic mobility as a “fundamental threat to the American dream” during a speech Wednesday in Washington. The speech will serve as an early preview for next year’s State of the Union address, according to a White House official, who said Obama would focus much of his energy over the next three years on the issue. “The decisions we make over the next few years will determine whether or not our children will grow up in an America where, if you work hard, you can get ahead,” the official said.
Good stuff from Jonathan Turley at today’s House hearing on executive power, although I regret that I couldn’t find a more user-friendly format for you to watch. There’s no compilation clip; you’ll have to make do with the C-SPAN embed by fast-forwarding to the time cues I give you and being patient while the vid buffers (and buffers, and buffers).(Snip)That brings us to point two: Even if Congress can’t stop Obama, the courts can. The problem there, though, says Turley, is that O and the DOJ have argued successfully in many cases that no one has standing to sue him
Bill Clinton, the cliché goes, was the first black president, no matter his skin color. That being the case, Barack Obama is not the first black president, or the first African-American president, if you prefer, but the first hippie president. Clinton’s southern background and lifestyle were indeed more typically black, just as Obama’s was more typically hippie. And we’re not just talking about the “Choom gang” here, scarfing “Maui Wowie” on the sands of Oahu. We’re talking about all of it, the whole multi-culti-missing-white-mother-vanished-Kenyan-father-anti-imperialist-America-is-always-the-enemy-and-don’t-you-forget-it-nine-yards. And like most hippie culture as I knew and experienced it, it wasn’t about “peace and love.” Not
During a presentation at the White House in which President Barack Obama touted the benefits of the Affordable Care Act, the president declared that his signature health care reform law was not going to be repealed. This assertion led his administration members, his staff, and audience members to rise from their seats and give the president a standing ovation. Obama said that ACA opponents’ alternative to the health care reform law is to champion repeal and going back to the health care delivery system status quo ante. He specifically cited Sen. Mitch McConnell (R-KY) who he said was asked directly for
A woman has revealed how difficult it is to eat healthily and stay full when living off an average food stamp budget. Melinda Moulton, from Huntington, Vermont, was one of 200 people to take part in the 3Squares Challenge, which saw her living for a week on just $36 worth of food, or around $1.71 a meal. Opting to try and eat as healthily as possible, Ms Moulton resorted to cheap foods like yogurt for breakfast, two handfuls of peanuts for lunch and lentil stew for dinner, all of which left her unsatisfied.´I don´t know how people do it,´ said
[Video] President Obama on Wednesday declared that addressing income inequality would be the focus of “all” of the White House’s efforts “for the rest of my presidency.” In a sweeping address that touched on raising the minimum wage, investing in infrastructure and ending tax breaks for the wealthy, Obama warned that the American economy has become “profoundly unequal,” declaring economic mobility the “challenge of our time.” “The combined trends of increasing inequality and decreasing mobility pose a fundamental threat to the American dream, our way of life, and what we stand for around the globe,” he said in an hour-long
Just over two weeks ago, MSNBC host Martin Bashir delivered a harsh piece of commentary that culminated in the suggestion that someone should “s-h-i-t” in former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin‘s (R-AK) mouth. Bashir offered an abject apology on his next broadcast, but a chorus of critics continued to demand action against the host. After a reported “vacation” for the host earlier this week, Bashir announced, Wednesday afternoon, that MSNBC and Martin Bashir are parting ways. Here’s the statement from Martin Bashir, via email: After making an on-air apology, I asked for permission to take some additional time out around the Thanksgiving holiday. Upon
Nineteen people stood behind President Obama on stage in the Executive Office Building Tuesday as the president kicked off a new campaign to promote Obamacare. One of those people, a young Florida woman named Monica Weeks, introduced Obama after telling the story of being struck with Crohn´s Disease at age 19 and receiving expensive treatments for several years that were covered by her parents´ health care plan — because Obamacare allowed her to remain on that plan until age 26. Now, Weeks said, she has coverage through a job. "The Affordable Care Act gives young adults who are just starting
Continued global warming poses a risk of rapid, drastic changes in some human and natural systems, a scientific panel warned Tuesday, citing the possible collapse of polar sea ice, the potential for a mass extinction of plant and animal life and the threat of immense dead zones in the ocean. At the same time, some worst-case fears about climate change that have entered the popular imagination can be ruled out as unlikely, at least over the next century, the panel found. These include a sudden belch of methane from the ocean or the Arctic that would fry the planet, as
Nobody could accuse the press of ignoring the fiasco-on-a-server that is HealthCare.gov. The Obamacare website’s woes are dominating coverage on the network news, the cable talk shows, the blogs and, of course, high-octane websites like POLITICO. But did the press do a good job of covering the Affordable Care Act before the health care exchanges went online—sort of—on Oct. 1? Were we adequately warned of the troubles that were to come? And now that HealthCare.gov’s problems are headline news, is the coverage of it any better? Sure, one can find a few examples of one news outlet or another warning of impending
MSNBC´s Chris Matthews will interview President Barack Obama this Thursday, the network announced Tuesday. The interview is part of Matthews´ "Hardball College Tour," and will take place at American University in Washington, D.C. According to a news release from MSNBC, Matthews, along with university students, will "discuss a variety of topics with the president including voter suppression, healthcare, the decline of confidence in the government and the overall political dysfunction in Washington." On Monday our colleagues Carrie Budoff Brown and Jonathan Allen reported that the White House is launching a coordinated campaign to return attention to why the Affordable Care Act
MSNBC has announced that Chris Matthews, Barack Obama´s most excitable fan, will be interviewing the President on Thursday´s Hardball. Fawning over the liberal politician is incredibly common among journalists, but Matthews has taken it to a whole new level. According to the network host, Obama is a "perfect," "cool," brilliant figure who is comparable to Jesus, Abraham Lincoln and John F. Kennedy. The verbose Matthews has no filter when it comes to the Democrat, even once bizarrely blurting out that an Obama speech made him "forget" that the commander in chief "was black."
