Stand With Hillary—The Remy Sequel! [John Adds: This Is Hilarious, Don't Miss It!]

Featured image I should have known when I noted the other day the hilarious “Stand With Hillary” video that our pal Remy Munasifi would be on the case.  Here’s his version, suitably entitled “Stand With Hillary, Part 2: The Arkansas Badonkadonk.” Enjoy! »

Oral History of Clinton Administration Could Pose Problems For Hillary

Featured image The Miller Center at the University of Virginia has posted online more than 70 interviews that constitute the “William J. Clinton Presidential History Project.” The interviewees are for the most part members of the Clinton administration, or in any event sympathetic to it. Nevertheless, not all of the facts that the interviewees relate will be helpful to Bill Clinton’s memory or his wife’s presidential ambitions. I haven’t had time to »

Stand With Hillary—And Then Laugh Your A– Off [With Skeptical Comment by John]

Featured image Who knew that the Hillary 2016 juggernaut had a fine sense of parody in its midst?  What else to make of this cringe-worthy musical ballad on behalf of Hillary released a couple of weeks ago and just now catching on (you owe yourself the three minutes for this totally hacktastic effort, though I do understand it’s three minutes of your life you’ll never get back): This news story explains that »

Hillary’s Dumb Diplomacy at Georgetown

Featured image Earlier today, Hillary Clinton gave a speech at Georgetown University titled “Smart Power: Security Through Inclusive Leadership.” The hall was at least half empty, as noted on Twitter: Which may not mean anything. Georgetown described an “audience of diplomats and other officials from all over the world,” so I am not sure whether the public was even invited. What does deserve ridicule, however, is the content of Hillary’s remarks, which »

The appeal of Hillary drunk

Featured image The National Enquirer reports that Ms. Hillary has a drinking problem and that her advisers want her to do a stint in rehab before she undertakes the rigors of a presidential campaign. You have to appreciate the Enquirer headline: “Boozy Hillary Clinton secret rehab shocker.” And you have to love the photos that the Enquirer runs with its big “scoop.” I don’t discount the story completely. After all, the Enquirer »

Why the Gallup Poll Means Deep Trouble for Hillary

Featured image Gallup headlines: Obama Approval Drops Among Working-Class Whites. Here, “working class” includes all non-college graduates, some 60-65% of the adult white population. Gallup’s chart shows President Obama’s approval rating among white college graduates and non-college graduates from the beginning of his administration to the end of October. His 27% approval rating among non-college graduates is indeed striking: But perhaps more important is Obama’s steep decline within that demographic. Since he »

Will Hillary Clinton get the moonbeam treatment?

Featured image Will Hillary Clinton face a serious challenge from the left if (as seems almost certain) she seeks the Democratic nomination for president? I assume she will face a challenge. The hard left represents a major component of her party, and is unlikely to be without a champion during the primary season. But a serious challenge requires a serious challenger. Who fits that description? Not Socialist Bernie Sanders. Not former Maryland »

How’d Hillary do?

Featured image Don Surber has an entertaining if wildly overoptimistic take on the midterm elections. Of most interest to me, however, is his contribution to answering the question I left hanging in my 13 notes on the morning after: how many competitive races in which Bill and Hillary Clinton stumped did their candidates win? Surber writes: “Hillary Clinton was about as effective as Pat Nixon on the campaign trail. Her candidates lost »

What’s in a name?

Featured image Not much, at least not in this election. If you don’t believe me just ask Mark Pryor, Alison Grimes, Michelle Nunn, Mark Begich, Jason Carter (grandson of Jimmy), among others. Who is the biggest name in the 2016 presidential field? Hillary Clinton, of course. The Clinton name was hardly magic this year. For example, it didn’t seem to help Pryor in Arkansas. He ended up losing to Tom Cotton by »

What Difference, At This Point, Does It Make?

Featured image Democrats are convinced that Hillary Clinton is a powerhouse presidential candidate, notwithstanding the fact that the only elections she has ever actually won were for the Senate; she ran in New York, a state in which she did not live, while she was First Lady. Which is, essentially, cheating. She was then reelected. After that, she lost the 2008 Democratic presidential nomination despite being universally considered the inevitable nominee. Is »

Hillary Clinton Reveals Her Stunning Ignorance of Economics

Featured image In this one-minute clip, trying to shore up the floundering Coakley campaign in Massachusetts, Hillary Clinton displays her ignorance of how the world works not once, but twice. First she assures her audience that raising the minimum wage doesn’t cost jobs, it leads to job gains. (“Our entry-level employees will now cost $15 an hour? Great! Let’s hire two!”) Of course, no one ever asks: if that’s true, Hillary, then »

Was Hillary Clinton against arming Syrian rebels before she was for it?

Featured image The official line from Hillary Clinton, as well as Leon Panetta, is that she was in favor of arming Syrian rebels, but that President Obama rejected her advice. This was one of the big “reveals” of her book and a theme during her book tour. But Bryan Preston shows that during a February 2012 interview with CBS, Clinton had no use for the idea of arming Syrian rebels. Her objections »

Democratic Party Media Run Interference for Hillary

Featured image Sarah Palin vs. Hillary Clinton: whom do you think the Democratic Party media prefers? Don’t worry, that isn’t a trick question. Still, no matter how reporters and editors may feel about the two women, it is obvious which one is more newsworthy. Sarah Palin served one-half of one term as Governor of Alaska. While she was, of course, the Republican vice-presidential nominee in 2008, she is not now, and most »

Report: “Queen” Clinton’s “henchmen” scrubbed Benghazi documents

Featured image Raymond Maxwell was the Deputy Assistant Secretary for Maghreb (North Africa) Affairs at the State Department’s Bureau of Near East Affairs from 2011-2012. When Hillary Clinton removed him from this position and placed him on leave in the aftermath of the Benghazi attacks, Maxwell wrote a poem called “Invitation” which we posted here. The “invitation” as the poem made clear, was to “lynching” and it came from the “henchmen” of »

HRC, in Mandela’s footsteps

Featured image Those of us who lived through the Clinton administration may have forgotten how acrid was the atmosphere. One of its features was the administration’s pervasive untruth. Reading Michael Isikoff’s book Uncovering Clinton, to take just one small example, one begins to understand that everyone around the Clintons, including the journalists who covered them, understood the basics of their marital arrangement, yet remained (and remains) silent about it. Who are we »

“Don’t do stupid [stuff]” and “Smart Power” — what’s the difference?

Featured image Hillary Clinton famously chided President Obama for his foreign policy when she declared: “Great nations need organizing principles, and ‘Don’t do stupid stuff’ is not an organizing principle.” But what is the organizing principle of Clinton’s foreign policy? According to Clinton, it is “smart power.” In remarks posted on her website (before it was scrubbed of content), she said she is “enormously proud of what we have achieved” using her »

Hillary Clinton scrubs the vanilla from her website, leaving it calorie-free

Featured image Jeryl Bier reports that Hillary Clinton’s website, Hillaryclintonoffice.com, has removed the only substantive content it contained. The “remarks” button on the website, which made a little bit of content available, vanished sometime between July 23 and August 27. The content that formerly appeared consists of February 14, 2013 remarks at the Joint Civilian Service Award Presentation; April 2, 2013 remarks at Vital Voices (a non-governmental organization promoting women’s leadership); and »
