Monica Lewinsky does
Hillary Clinton a big favor

Washington Post, by Ruth Marcus

Original Article

Posted By:Dreadnought, 5/6/2014 11:02:44 PM

Monica Lewinsky may not have intended it this way, but she just did Hillary Clinton a big favor. Lewinsky could be forgiven, of course, if she did not mean to join Team Hillary. She is the forgotten, tragic roadkill of the affair. Bill Clinton paid the price of public humiliation and House impeachment, but he moved on, concluding what is remembered as a successful (if tarnished) presidency and a post-presidency at least as successful. Hillary Clinton, humiliated in her own way, emerged seemingly stronger. Her marriage endured; she became senator and secretary of state. Having put cracks in the glass

Lynne Cheney is way ahead of you, Ruthie. As Lynne said, "Would Vanity Fair publish anything of Monica Lewinsky that Hillary Clinton wouldn’t want in Vanity Fair?” Amen.

Only a devoted Hillary ´slave´ would view this as a win for Hillary.

Bubba is still a rapist and horn dog and Hillary is in a marriage of convenience.

Their is no winner in this mess except Bubba.

Hillary NEVER stood by her man. They live separate lives in separate cities.

Just the thought of Hill and Slick getting back in the White House makes me sick to my stomach. Please, American people, be smarter than that and don´t vote for lying Hillary.

I disagree that it´s a win for HRC. I think it´s just more nasty associated with the Clintons.

Monica Lewinsky didn´t like it when Beyonce´ used her name as a verb. Instead of getting "Monica Lewinsky´d", she felt it should have been "Bill Clinton´d".

I think it brings up all the women and the nastiness that they are.

This is not complimentary to Hilary. It makes her seem ruthless and cold-hearted, which she is. Monica is a pretty tragic figure, no job, no husband, not pretty or young any longer. The whole sordid affair is still sordid. But, good try, VF!

Hillary cares about women who have been exploited. This is one of the many reasons why she should be the next commander in chief. We know this is true because of the honest and objective MSM. Question it, and your job may be at risk.

KENNEBUNKPORT, Maine — Former first lady Barbara Bush is having a low-key 89th birthday celebration in Maine. A family spokesman says the wife of former President George H.W. Bush is having a private dinner Sunday with relatives in Kennebunkport, where the family has a summer home. There´ll be another celebration later in the week. The former president turns 90 on Thursday. George H.W. Bush went skydiving on his 85th birthday and vowed he would do it again on his 90th. But it doesn´t appear that will be the case. His spokesman says Bush plans to have dinner with family

The Obama administration gave the parents of Army Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl extraordinary insider access to the military’s hunt for their son by having them take part in a series of secure video conferences with senior commanders as well as White House and State Department officials. A former government official involved in American hostage issues said he had never heard of giving a family such access and questioned whether sensitive information could have been conveyed to Robert and Jani Bergdahl and somehow leaked out. A family spokesman said he knows of no such breach. Soon after Sgt. Bergdahl went missing in

FORT WORTH — The last time Sen. Ted Cruz showed up at a Texas Republican Party convention, it was as the scrappy insurgent who had come from nowhere to force the establishment’s anointed one into a run-off for a U.S. Senate seat. More than 8,000 Republicans gathered here again Thursday for their three-day biennial meeting. And just two years after he first appeared on their stage, the junior senator from Texas bestrode the world inside the Fort Worth Convention Center as a colossus. The story line of this primary season nationally has largely been one in which the Republican establishment

Democratic senator Puckett resigns,

State Sen. Phillip P. Puckett- D-Russell has resigned his seat, leaving Democrats one vote shy of the majority they need to control the chamber. Puckett´s stunning resignation throws Democratic budget strategy into chaos and opening the way for Republicans to seize control of the chamber and reorganize its committees with GOP majorities. “I am deeply disappointed by this news and the uncertainty it creates at a time when 400,000 Virginians are waiting for access to quality health care, especially those in Southwest Virginia,” Gov. Terry McAuliffe said in a statement. “This situation is unacceptable, but the bipartisan majority in the

NBC News reports that U.S. officials have stated that Army Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl, who was examined at the U.S. military hospital in Landstuhl, Germany, after his release from the Taliban, is in decent physical shape. He has no permanent physical injuries from his confinement by the Taliban. Officials said Bergdahl is in “good enough physical condition to allow him to return to the United States,” but he is “not ready psychologically or emotionally” to do so. Bergdahl has not called his family in Idaho, although he is free to at any time. Officials from the U.S. Department of Defense claimed

A Pardon for Bowe Bergdahl
Power Line, by Paul Mirengoff    Original Article
Posted By: Dreadnought- 6/8/2014 8:51:06 PM     Post Reply
When Bowe Bergdahl was first released, the administration’s line seemed to be that he had suffered enough as a Taliban prisoner, and thus that the U.S. would not likely punish him as a deserter even if that’s what he turned out to be. But as the deal came in for strong criticism and evidence mounted as to Bergdahl’s betrayal, the line changed. We were assured by the military that Bergdahl’s conduct would be investigated and, if misconduct were found, he would be subject to the military justice system. In the meantime, we should withhold judgment. But Bill Otis predicts that,

While the rest of us are arguing about Sgt. Bergdahl, President Obama is sneaking through another presidential decree. This one has to do with student loan forgiveness — a nice little gift to a constituency that the president wants to turn out on election day next November. Businessweek: U.S. President Barack Obama will move tomorrow to ease monthly payments for people with student loans, according to a White House official. Obama, in executive action coordinated with a legislative push by Senate Democrats, will direct the Department of Education to expand the number of people who can take advantage of a law

Democratic strategist and former Clinton-campaign manager Donna Brazile said this morning that veterans accusing recently returned Sergeant Bowe Bergdahl of desertion are part of a “PR campaign by Republicans.” After fellow panelist Ana Navarro noted that members of Bergdahl’s unit had consistently expressed concerns about the circumstances of his capture, Brazile said it was an effort to “muddy the waters” surrounding the prisoner deal. Quickly criticized for the comment by her fellow panelists on CNN, she said that she’d never impugn the testimony of a veteran, but stood by her comments. “That’s all they do . . . all they do

Silicon Valley´s Andreessen
Calls Snowden ´Traitor´
Breitbart California, by Chriss W. Street    Original Article

Last week marked the one-year anniversary of former NSA contractor Edward Snowden’s epic revelations of the existence of numerous global surveillance programs run by the National Security Agency (NSA), the Five Eyes (Australia, Canada, New Zealand, the United Kingdom and the United States) and the cooperation of U.S. tech companies. While the U.S. technology industry now seems desperate to try to reign in spying programs after the retaliatory blowback of losing huge amounts of foreign commercial and government business, top venture capitalist Marc Andreessen is standing alone in calling Edward Snowden a "traitor" for leaking government secrets.

CNN’s Candy Crowley asked John McCain this morning whether trading top Taliban leaders from Guantanamo Bay for Sergeant Bowe Bergdahl was better than having to release the detainees when U.S. combat operations end in Afghanistan. McCain thinks that’s a false choice: Men like the the five commanders released, he believes, should be tried if possible, but just held indefinitely otherwise. When pressed as to what authority or what assurances he’d trust to keep the five detainees from returning to terrorism, McCain simply said, “well, first of all, I wouldn’t have released them.” The plan all along, McCain said, has been to

The President´s Very Real Military Problem

The president of the United States is the commander in chief over all branches of the military. It is a historic time, given that no military member goes public to speak negatively about the ultimate commander. But now, with the scandal in full bloom, after the administration´s smokescreen about what triggered the deadly attack on the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi, Libya, and after the president´s tepidly received speech at West Point announcing diplomacy will replace military responses henceforth, the time for silence is over. Now career military personnel are speaking out through gritted teeth, insisting they speak for active-duty personnel

The seething anger at seeing the Obama administration being raked over the coals by critics of the Bowe Bergdahl exchange of five hardened terrorists for a soldier who left his post, including many Democrats and most prominently his fellow unit members, was apparently too much for the editorial board at the New York Times. On Thursday, they let loose with a poorly sourced and hastily drafted editorial originally entitled "The Politics of the Bergdahl Case." Tim Graham at NewsBusters alluded to this editorial on Friday in covering fake conservative David Brooks´s completely predictable defense of President Obama´s decision. Several revisions

Forget about Barack Obama’s ultra-liberal policies — should Americans now be worried about the mental health of the current occupant of the White House? That was the alarming suggestion Fox Business Network viewers heard Tuesday evening. Talking about the bewildering decision to trade five “high risk” Taliban leaders for Army Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl on Lou Dobbs Tonight, psychologist Dr. Gina Loudon said she has become “very, very concerned” that President Obama has become “irrational, erratic and perhaps not exactly what we might want to deem sane.” [Video and transcript after the jump.] Host Lou Dobbs asked Loudon about the case of U.S.

A new study that tested the willingness of drivers to stop for people depending on their race has shown up some disconcerting conclusions. Portland State University-based Oregon Transportation Research and Education Consortium (OTREC) had six men - three black and three white - of similar age and build and dressed in identical ´neutral´ outfits cross the same street in Portland at separate intervals. The street had a crosswalk that was not governed by traffic lights, leaving the onus to stop with the driver, according to The Huffington Post. Trained observers watched the study out of sight from the traffic and

California Chrome flamed out in his bid for Triple Crown glory Saturday — and then his irate co-owner launched verbal bombs at the competition. The high drama at the 146th Belmont Stakes began with California Chrome finishing in a dead heat for fourth and ended with a shocking rant by outspoken co-owner Steve Coburn. The cowboy hat-wearing Coburn took aim at the winner Tonalist for cherry-picking races — sitting out the first two legs of the Triple Crown before competing at the Belmont. “That’s the coward’s way out,” he fumed. “It’s not fair to these horses that have been in the game since

PARIS- Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl has told people treating him at a U.S. military medical facility in Germany that he was tortured, beaten and held in a cage by his Taliban captors in Afghanistan after he tried to escape, a senior U.S. official said Sunday. The official spoke on condition of anonymity because he was not authorized to discuss what Bergdahl has revealed about the conditions of his captivity. The official said it was difficult to verify the accounts Bergdahl has given since his release a week ago. Bergdahl, now 28, was captured in June 2009 after he disappeared from his

Progressive hero Noam Chomsky is terrified of the surveillance state that has developed during the tenure of President Barack Obama, calling it a grave threat to our fundamental civil liberties. In a column published Monday, Chomsky writes that the documents revealed to the public by Edward Snowden show a system that is flagrantly violating the principles of the Constitution. “It is of no slight import that the project is being executed in one of the freest countries in the world, and in radical violation of the U.S. Constitution’s Bill of Rights, which protects citizens from ‘unreasonable searches and seizures,’ and

The platoon was, an American military official would assert years later, “raggedy.”On their tiny, remote base, in a restive sector of eastern Afghanistan at an increasingly violent time of the war, they were known to wear bandannas and cutoff T-shirts. Their crude observation post was inadequately secured, a military review later found. Their first platoon leader, and then their first platoon sergeant, were replaced relatively early in the deployment because of problems. But the unit — Second Platoon, Blackfoot Company in the First Battalion, 501st Regiment — might well have remained indistinguishable from scores of other Army platoons

Ted Cruz has not made himself a popular man in Washington, D.C. The Texas Republican would argue that’s the point. But even for a Senator—an elected office with the backing of an entire state—ticking off powerful people can have consequences. (Snip) A week after his election to the Senate in 2012, Cruz was named vice chair of the National Republican Senatorial Committee, which works to elect Republicans to the Senate. But he subsequently refused to endorse incumbent senators, or help them in their races, a fact that many Tea Party insurgents have seized upon. He hasn’t set foot in the NRSC in more than a year, sources say.

Hi, everybody. This is commencement season, a time for graduates and their families to celebrate one of the greatest achievements of a young person’s life. But for many graduates, it also means feeling trapped by a whole lot of student loan debt. And we’ve got to do more to lift that burden. See, in a 21st century economy, the surest pathway into the middle class is some form of higher education. The unemployment rate for workers with a bachelor’s degree is just 3.3 percent — about half what it is for high school graduates. The typical graduate of a four-year college earns $15,000 more per year than someone with just a high school degree.

If you think of the United States of America as a store, its recent decisions and scandals resemble a sale, perhaps a fire sale. Or maybe even a “Going Out of Business” sale. The list of dramatic markdowns is breathtaking. They include trading away five murderous terrorists for a likely Army deserter, an open invitation to tens of thousands of illegal immigrants to cross the Mexican border, and a decision to recognize the terrorist group Hamas as part of the Palestinian government. On the home front, environmental regulations will cost thousands of coal miners their jobs and drive up the cost of
