Hillary’s old friend, Sid Vicious

Featured image Hillary Clinton doesn’t talk much to reporters and when she does, she reveals as little as possible. But she revealed plenty when she described Sidney Blumenthal as “an old friend.” It’s hardly surprising Blumenthal is a friend of Hillary’s. For her, his combination of viciousness and weakness for conspiracy theories must be irresistible. What’s interesting is that Clinton admits to the friendship. I’ve heard it said that Blumenthal’s legendary viciousness »

Return to Stephanopoulos

Featured image George Stephanopoulos acted as an advocate for the Clintons and the Clinton Foundation when Peter Schweizer appeared to discuss his book Clinton Cash on This Week with the Democratic Operative. I noted Stephanopoulos’s absurd pose that Sunday in “For the Clinton defense.” Subsequent reporting by the Washington Free Beacon’s Andrew Stiles dug out Stephanopoulos’s undisclosed contributions to the Clinton Foundation. Asked for comment by Stiles when the story was ready »

Hillary Clinton, asleep at the switch

Featured image John has done a great job analyzing Hillary Clinton’s Benghazi emails. His posts are here and here. I urge you to read both of them. Here’s an additional item that caught my eye. On September 15, 2012 — just four days after the Benghazi attacks — Monica Hanley, a Clinton aide, sent an email to Hillary at 9:17 a.m. telling her that senior White House official Dan Pfeiffer “has some »

More on Hillary’s Benghazi Emails

Featured image Late last week, the State Department released a tiny number of Hillary Clinton’s emails related to the Benghazi controversy. On Saturday, I wrote about the most important of those emails in Hillary’s Real Benghazi Problem. If you haven’t read that post, I recommend it; its point is that the real issue isn’t Benghazi in a vacuum, it is the disastrous Libya policy for which Hillary is mostly responsible. The deaths »

Hillary’s Real Benghazi Problem

Featured image Yesterday the State Department released a handful of Hillary Clinton’s emails relating to Benghazi. They have been selected at least twice for release to the public, once by Hillary’s minions and once by the Department, so no one expected any bombshells. Nevertheless, I find them surprisingly interesting. This post addresses what I think is the most important point. I will cover a few smaller matters in a future post. This »

Is Hillary’s Candidacy Just Another Business Deal?

Featured image Jennifer Rubin notes this morning that Hillary’s obviously terrible campaign skills are getting noticed in the mainstream media. It’s so bad that Hillary is actually going to launch her campaign a second time next month with a big public rally. It is said that a lot of second- and third-tier Republican candidates (Carson, Huckabee, Fiorina, etc) are only running to enable them to get nice post-campaign media contracts from Fox »

Another reason why Hillary Clinton does not deserve to be president

Featured image Anti-Hillary Clinton political ads are writing themselves on a weekly basis. The latest source is this New York Times report that Hillary’s private email account contained sensitive information. The official name for the information is “sensitive but unclassified” (SBU). What sensitive but unclassified information did Hillary have in her private account? According to the Times, “that information included the whereabouts and travel plans of American officials in Libya as security »

More evidence, via “Sid Vicious,” of Hillary’s Benghazi deceit

Featured image Some of the information Sidney Blumenthal supplied to Hillary Clinton about Libya is said to have been flawed. But “Sid Vicious” got one important thing right. Two days after the attack, Blumenthal told Hillary that “sensitive sources” in Libya said Ansar al-Sharia, an Al Qaeda-backed terror group, had planned the attacks for a month and used the protest as a cover. (The day before he had advised Hillary that demonstrators »

Is Hillary’s Glass Jaw Starting to Crack Already?

Featured image If Hillary Clinton’s feeble performance in the 2008 campaign is any indication, she has a glass jaw as a candidate, which will manifest itself at some point—though perhaps too late for a credible candidate other than Joe Biden to have enough time to organize a serious campaign. People keep saying the Republicans might have a brokered convention, but maybe it will be the Democrats who revive the e-cigarette-filled-backroom.* As we »

Democrats: White Males Need Not Apply

Featured image According to a story reported in the New York Daily News and other outlets, Hillary Clinton already has a list of prospective running mates, but there’s only one name on it: A former top Clinton administration official predicted Sunday that Hillary Clinton will pick Julian Castro as her running mate if she wins the 2016 Democratic presidential nomination. “What I am hearing in Washington, including from people in Hillary Clinton’s »

28 Days Later

Featured image 28 Days Later is one of the early zombie-apocalypse movies of the last decade (though as Danny Boyle thrillers go I prefer the flawed but still interesting Sunshine), but the title clearly fits the cater-to-the-zombie-vote strategy of Hillary Clinton, who went 28 days before taking a press question. You can see ABC’s two-minute report on it here (though why is George Snuffulupagus still anchoring any political coverage at all?).  She »

Hillary Clinton, “Sid Vicious,” and Libya

Featured image The New York Times presents an account of Sidney Blumenthal’s memos to Hillary Clinton concerning Libya. For the benefit of our younger readers and those with short memories, I should say that during Bill Clinton’s presidency, Blumenthal was probably the slimiest of Team Clinton’s operatives, earning the nickname Sid Vicious. For example, according to Christopher Hitchens, once Blumenthal’s good friend, vicious Sid spread defamatory stories about Monica Lewinsky. Hitchens swore »

The Truth About Benghazi Slowly Emerges

Featured image Years ago, Judicial Watch served Freedom of Information Act requests relating to Benghazi on the Defense Department and the State Department. The Obama administration stonewalled, as always, so Judicial Watch eventually had to sue to enforce its rights under FOIA. That lawsuit has been going on for more than two years, as the Obama administration continued to resist producing relevant documents. Finally, on September 9, 2014, a federal court in »

Hillary Clinton and “the young and the diverse”

Featured image Why is Hillary Clinton is tacking so hard to the left even though no semi-formidable leftist has yet expressed interest in opposing her for the Democratic presidential nomination? According to Anne Gearan of the Washington Post, the answer is that Hillary hopes to win the general election by assembling the same coalition that twice elected Barack Obama. According to the Clinton advisers Gearan interviewed, the campaign has concluded (1) that »

And Now Hillary Bids to Ruin Everyone’s Summer

Featured image At least that’s how Saturday Night Live took another whack at Hillary this weekend. If you’ve lost SNL. . . (Video about 6:30 long, but worth it.) »

Weasel words from a weasel

Featured image ABC News anchor George Stephanopoulos failed to disclose his $75,000 in contributions and other connections to the Clinton Foundation as he interrogated Peter Schweizer regarding his book Clinton Cash. He didn’t mention his work as a campaign operative and administration official on behalf of Bill Clinton either, but ABC viewers are apparently assumed to bring that knowledge to the table. (Wrong, but who are we to judge?) When Stephanopoulos’s contributions »

Have Hostile Governments Stolen Hillary’s Emails?

Featured image Hillary Clinton’s illegal use of a personal email server while she was Secretary of State is scandalous on several levels, but one obvious concern is that she can’t possibly have had adequate security. Yesterday our friend Hugh Hewitt, who has been making a lot of news lately, had as a guest former CIA Deputy Director Michael Morell. They were talking about Morell’s new book, The Great War of Our Time, »
