Hillary Clinton

Almost Anyone Beats Hillary

Featured image The latest Fox News poll of 1,000 registered voters is pretty stunning. To begin with, nearly every Republican tested beats Hillary Clinton in the presidential race. Marco Rubio does best at 50%-42%, but Donald Trump, Ben Carson, Ted Cruz, Jeb Bush and Chris Christie also lead her. Carly Fiorina ties Hillary at 42%-42%. This is partly an artifact of the moment, with terrorism rated first among important issues, with 24%. »

Laugh, laugh [With Comment by John]

Featured image Ed Morrissey takes a look at the story reported here by Judicial Watch regarding the Clinton campaign’s unamused response to the stand-up comedians mocking Madam Hillary at the Laugh Factor. I took the Judicial Watch report at face value in “(No) good mockin’ tonight.” The Clinton campaign denies that it responded as reported. Ed collects the evidence and suggests that the appropriate response to Judicial Watch’s report would have been »

Recite from the Koran or die

Featured image Hillary Clinton and Team Obama like to pretend that the terrorism perpetrated throughout the world by Muslims has nothing to do with Islam. Maybe they should tell this to the families of those killed today at the Radisson Blu hotel in Bamako, Mali. According to reports, the terrorists took a large number of hostages, but then released those (reportedly around 20 in number) who could recite a verse from the »

Hillary Doubles Down On Clueless

Featured image Hillary Clinton delivered a speech today to the Council on Foreign Relations in New York. She discussed terrorism extensively, taking time (like her boss) to ridicule Republicans for referring to radical Islam: Reading her speech at a brisk clip from a teleprompter at the Council on Foreign Relations in New York City, she slowed momentarily to mock three words – “radical Islamic terrorism” – that Republicans often accuse President Barack »

(No) Good Mockin’ Tonight [updated]

Featured image Five stand-up comedians performing at Hollywood’s Laugh Factory subjected Madam Hillary to rude mockery. Who do these people think they are? What country do they think they’re living in? Madam Hillary holds no office, but she wields the royal prerogative. No court jesters allowed. That’s no lady, that’s my queen! Judicial Watch concisely summarizes the story: A video of the short performance, which is less than three minutes, is posted »

Abedin warned that Hillary “is often confused”

Featured image Judicial Watch, that heroic organization, has released a new batch of emails written by Huma Abedin, a top Hillary Clinton aide at the State Department. In one of them, from January 2013, Abedin advised another Clinton aide, that it was “very important” to go over phone calls with Clinton because the former Secretary of State was “often confused.” Here is the text: Abedin: Have you been going over her calls »

Hillary Clinton: “I come from the ’60s, a long time ago”

Featured image I didn’t watch the Democrats’ presidential debate on Saturday night. There was too much good college football on tap, which probably helps explain why the Dems staged the event in this time slot. Or is it just coincidence that the debate, held in Iowa, conflicted with the game between undefeated Iowa and the University of Minnesota? This report from the Washington Post suggests that the Democrats were wise to hold »

Radical Islam? What’s That?

Featured image Last night’s Democratic presidential debate was conducted in the shadow of the ISIS attacks on Paris, but the contenders still don’t want to acknowledge that radical Islam is our enemy. In the clip below, Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders dodge and twist to avoid acknowledging that reality. Why? I’m not sure. The language they use is code for something, but I’m not certain what. There can hardly be enough radical »

After last night

Featured image Watching the Democratic presidential candidates’ event on CBS last night, I thought we had entered the Twilight Zone. You know, “You unlock this door with the key of imagination. Beyond it is another dimension…” John Dickerson played Rod Serling. Herewith my impression of the highlights. Bernie Sanders explained that the phenomenon formerly known as global warming (PFKAGW) was the cause of the Paris massacres. Sanders is no outlier. He represents »

Dartmouth says it’s working to bring Trump to campus

Featured image In response, I assume, to criticism over excluding Donald Trump from using Spaulding auditorium while allowing Hillary Clinton to do so, Dartmouth’s PR department has issued this statement: Dartmouth is eager to welcome all political candidates to campus and give our students the access that comes with being in New Hampshire during the first-in-the-nation presidential primary. Gov. John Kasich and Sen. Lindsey Graham were both recently on campus as part »

Ready for Hyl-liar

Featured image At the site of the Center for Security Policy, Fred Fleitz has posted the video of Ezra Levant providing a primer on Hillary and Benghazi (about 8 minutes). The video incorporates revelations from Clinton’s supposedly triumphant testimony last month to the House Select Committee on Benghazi. The video is a sort of Benghazi for Dummies. It is also a useful reminder of what a liar Madam Hillary is. Are you »

Dartmouth plays favorites in the presidential race

Featured image Dartblog reports that in September of this year, Dartmouth officials told the college Republicans they could not have the use of Spaulding auditorium for a Donald Trump appearance because this space is never used for political candidates. “Candidates never get Spaulding,” is what College Republicans vice president Charles Springer says he was told “word for word.” Because Dartmouth could not meet the Trump campaigns requirement of a room that accommodates »

Hillary Is Losing In Minnesota

Featured image Survey USA has released a new poll of voters in deep-blue Minnesota. The results should be alarming to Democrats everywhere. The poll shows just about every Republican tested–Ben Carson, Marco Rubio, Carly Fiorina and Donald Trump–beating Hillary Clinton, if the election were held today. Jeb Bush is +1 against Hillary, within the margin of error, and Hillary beats Ted Cruz by five points. What’s interesting is that these are mostly »

The world according to the Democratic establishment

Featured image This weekend, a reader from here in the Washington D.C. area found himself seated next to a Democratic fundraiser and operative. This Democrat offered the following opinions. They reflect, I think, how well-connected Democrats read the current political situation: 1. Hillary Clinton is a “gem” who will win 70% of the women’s vote and likely the election because electing the first woman president is “a really big deal.” 2. Democrats »

Found: a signed copy of Clinton’s agreement on handling sensitive compartmented info

Featured image The Washington Free Beacon reports that a day after becoming Secretary of State, Hillary Clinton signed a Sensitive Compartmented Information Nondisclosure Agreement that set forth the criminal penalties for “any unauthorized disclosure” of classified information. It had been assumed that she signed this document, but now it has been confirmed that she did. By signing the statement, Clinton affirmed, among other things: “I have been advised that the unauthorized disclosure, »

Hillary Heckled

Featured image Black Lives Matter has finally succeeded in interrupting a Hillary Clinton campaign appearance. The Hill has details here. A one-minute video containing the point of interruption appears below. Hillary doesn’t look as pathetically weak as Bernie Sanders did in Seattle a while back, but her supine response illustrates the dilemma for Democrats—they don’t dare stand up to Black Lives Matter, for fear of offending Al Sharpton. The video displays one »

Rubio Explains Hillary’s Lie

Featured image This morning, Marco Rubio appeared on CBS’s This Morning program. Host Charlie Rose appeared to be appalled by Rubio’s statement in last night’s debate that Hillary Clinton lied about Benghazi. For most of us, this is like saying that the Sun rose in the East, but to Rose it was evidently a new idea. So he tried to defend Hillary, unsuccessfully. Marco gave him chapter and verse, briefly and effectively: »
