Hillary Clinton

Debates Then and Now

Featured image If you want to know just how crazy things are, consider that Hofstra University, host of tonight’s debate, has posted a “trigger warning” outside because some Hofstra students might find the content of the debate traumatizing. And just who do you think will do the triggering? I suppose if Hillary collapses on stage (is Lloyd’s quoting odds, or any Las Vegas bookmakers taking bets?) I suppose liberals will be traumatized, »

Bibi calls on Trump and Clinton

Featured image Sticking around in New York following his address to the UN General Assembly last week, Benjamin Netanyahu called on both Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton yesterday. We received the Trump campaign’s summary (“readout”) of the meeting. I was interested in it and thought some other readers might find it of interest: Donald J. Trump met privately today with Prime Minister Netanyahu for over an hour at Mr. Trump’s residence in »

There’s something about Hillary’s health

Featured image Readers who have been following the saga of Hillary’s dubious health will remember that Dr. Lisa Bardack is Clinton’s personal physician. At Tom Lifson’s American Thinker site, Jay Michaels gives Dr. Bardack’s letters testifying to Hillary’s good health the kind of close reading that Leo Strauss brought to Plato’s dialogues. Michaels’s post comes with the suitably literary heading “Dr. Lisa Bardack’s Faustian bargain.” Pursuing a theme we have articulated here »

How’s the Coverup Going, Hillary?

Featured image Yesterday the FBI did another Friday afternoon document dump, consisting of more documents relating to its investigation of Hillary Clinton’s email security breaches. The Washington Examiner spotted this hilarious item from an interview of a Platte River Networks employee who referred in 2014 to “the Hilary coverup operation.” Which of course brings to mind this famous cartoon. Click to enlarge: The difference being, of course, that that was just a »

Hillary: The Third World Has a “Right” to Move to the United States

Featured image On Monday, Donald Trump gave a speech on terrorism and immigration in which he said: We want people to come into our country, but they have to come in legally, through a process…. No one has a right to immigrate to this country. That should be a truism. But, as Byron York points out, Hillary Clinton responded in a retweet that she disagrees: "No one has the right to immigrate »

There’s something about Hillary’s eyes

Featured image Yesterday Tom Lifson took note of Hillary’s wandering eyes. Several physicians have written us to observe that they are consistent with a left abducens nerve (CN6) palsy, residual from her cerebral venous sinus thrombosis. Now Dr. John Coppedge elaborates on this thesis in a post at The Hill that he calls “Clinton’s eyes — a window into her health issues.” Dr. Coppedge explains: Her eyes did not always move in »

There’s something about Hillary

Featured image There’s something about Hillary. Whatever it is, it’s way different from that something about Mary. It might have something do with her health. It might have something to do with her continuing struggle to impersonate an authentic human being. She may have lost her true self somewhere along the way. Whatever it is, it is apparent in the video address she delivered on Wednesday to the Laborers’ International Union of »

At the birth of birtherism

Featured image Sidney Blumenthal is one of Hillary Clinton’s closest confidants. His leading quality is reflected in the well-earned moniker Sid Vicious, though his viciousness is reflected most acutely in his lies. Students of ancient history may recall Blumenthal’s dramatic flood of lies about his appearance before a grand jury investigating Clinton scandals in 1998. As reported by the New York Times, Blumenthal emerged from the private grand jury proceedings to attack »

Charlie Crist vouches for Hillary’s honesty; hilarity ensues

Featured image Who is the biggest charlatan in American politics today? Once, I would have said John Edwards, but he’s out of the game (as far as I know). These days, I think the correct answer is Charlie Crist. You can get a good sense of why I award the biggest charlatan title to Crist in this post and this one. One might have thought that, like John Edwards, Crist is out »

Emails show what Hillary has in mind for Israel

Featured image Rabbi Shmuley Boteach, writing in the Observer*, says that having examined Hillary Clinton’s emails, he is “hard-pressed to find a single note that is sympathetic toward the Jewish state from any of the people she trusted.” He reminds us that Sid Blumenthal, one of Hillary’s most trusted advisers, sent Clinton dozens of anti-Israel articles written by Sid’s rabidly anti-Israel son Max. Hillary responded favorably to them. But, says Boteach, “the »

Hillary’s Health Again Front and Center in North Carolina

Featured image Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton are neck and neck in North Carolina, and both were scheduled to make campaign appearances in the state today. Trump’s event was a public meeting that was expected to draw a crowd of 7,000 or 8,000 in a town with 855 residents. Hillary planned something less strenuous: a fundraiser at a home in Chapel Hill, where a privileged few would pay $100,000 for the honor »

Two hours of rural driving, not one Clinton sign

Featured image I spent the weekend in Rehoboth Beach, Delaware. It’s about a three hour drive from my house. The first hour gets you to the Chesapeake Bay Bridge. After that, you’re on Maryland’s Eastern Shore and in rural Delaware, traveling lesser highways. Signs for various political candidates begin to appear. Most of the ones we saw were for state and local candidates. However, Donald Trump was represented. Hillary Clinton, by contrast, »

Stronger unread, WaPo edition

Featured image Yesterday in “Better unread” I noted the humorous Amazon reviews of the new book allegedly by Hillary Clinton and Tim Kaine. I want to add that the Washington Post’s Carlos Lozada is as harsh as the Amazon commenters, but then Lozada actually had to read the book: “By the time I finished this book, I resented its existence….I don’t understand why this book was compiled — ‘written’ is too generous »

What’s Wrong With Hillary?

Featured image For a while a few weeks ago, the question on many minds was: “Is Donald Trump trying to throw the election?” His gaffetastic performance beggared belief. But now you have to wonder whether Hillary wants to win, or is content with being the first female presidential nominee of a major party. Below is video of her comments on her campaign plane last night about the bombings in New York City. »

Stronger unread

Featured image Hillary Clinton and Tim Kaine claim the authorship of the campaign manifesto Stronger Together, released in paperback by Simon & Schuster on September 6. The book opens with the kind of bold statement that has served Clinton well in the course of her long career in public life: “It has been said that America is great because America is good. We agree.” Let it not be said that she has »

Credit card fraud: Hillary edition

Featured image Barack Obama’s two presidential campaigns pioneered the acceptance of illegal foreign donations. I first wrote about it in the 2008 New York Post column “Dubious donations.” In 2012 it was same as it ever was, or so it seemed. By September 2012 Peter Schweizer’s Government Accountability Institute had produced a 98-page report documenting the phenomenon. The silence of the mainstream media showed it was same as it ever was in »

The wheedle and the damage done: Hillary edition

Featured image Professor Robert Kaufman traces the connection between the monumental foreign policy disasters and misjudgments of the Obama administration in the Wall Street Journal column “What’s a Reagan internationalist to do?” (accessible via Google here. Professor Kaufman observes: “As secretary of state, Mrs. Clinton served loyally as President Obama’s first mate on his foreign-policy Titanic.” Professor Kaufman draws a contrast between Clinton and Trump in this respect: “[U]nlike Mr. Trump, Mrs. »
