In a succinct 5,930-word profile of Hillary Clinton, New York Magazine shed some light yesterday on what author Joe Hagan refers to as “Clintonworld”—a swirling and nebulous configuration of hangers-on, loyalists, sycophants, and a former president who comprise the Clintonian version of Camelot. And in this Clintonworld are many disembodied voices (read: anonymous sources) declaring that Hillary is running—and knows that she is—whether she realizes it or not. The former first lady and secretary of state described some of the pleasures that she and Bill have been able to enjoy since her departure from the Obama administration. “[W]e laugh at our
I enjoyed the author´s use of these adjectives: ghastly, terrifying, disembodied, dubious. However I prefer creepy, and in regard to the "little man", creepier.
Can´t help but wonder if Soros is willing to buy the presidency again for one of his BFFs. It may depend upon his opinion of the destruction he has wrought against the United States of America. Whether he knows it or not, he is running out of time to fulfill his life-long dream of the total destruction of our country.
How this pathetic woman got this far is mind boggling. It just goes to show you the power of public relations. They have crafted Hillary´s image out of thin air. She is nothing but a political power junkie who luxuriated in the power of her husband´s presidency and set herself on a course to be the first woman president.
However, her incompetency trips her up. Benghazi was a huge screw up. The reset button was an embarrassment. Basically, all Hillary know is politicking. She is well versed in backroom wheeling and dealing and political favors. If she becomes president she will finish off this county because she has the same mindset as Obama and would have been the candidate in 2008 but he had better optics. Now it is her turn and she will not be denied. She will spruce herself up and call in every favor, twist a few arms and she will be the democrat candidate. God help us.
No matter how she tries, she cannot directly answer Benghazi questions. It´s the albatross around her neck. We need to be absolutely steely in our resolve to NEVER let up on Behghazi. Pledge to attend every possible Hillary appearance near you and hold a blood red sign reading, "Hillary: Benghazi SHAME." We need hundreds of people at every event. She can´t afford to engage on this subject and it´s possible to keep her in check this way.
With voter fraud in place, the IRS and Republicans running another ´it´s his turn´ candidate Hillary ´will´ be the next president then the nation is finished. We will become the United Communist Muslim States of America. The old sixties hippies will have won.
If the Republicans run against her with the same pair of kid gloves they used with Obama she´s in. If they drop the gloves and adopt an entirely different sort of pair we stand a chance. I´m seeing "What difference at this point does it make" "T" shirts. Whitewater investments, FBI files not just absconded with but used against political opponents, you name it. At the same time please lay off the irrelevant distractions.
Vote fraud alone will get her in. Republicans giving us another McCain RINO will get her in. Diane Sawyer and all the other news actors, blindly praising her stupidity will get her in, all the cheating tax TAKERS will get her in, the Communists and Muslims and Soros billions infiltrated into our government will get her in, even FoxNews socialist and "balanced news" will help to get her in, communist controlled government unions will get her in. Only Hitler could do better. HOWEVER, the New Media, the fighting internet blogs like Breitbart, James D Manning, talk radio like Mark Levin, conservative labeled book publishing, like Sarah Palin, and a vast, untapped, human resource can detail, remind, the ghastly truth of her years of life of crime as co conspirator and co president with lying Slick Willie. Benghazi and her years of premature deaths, remember Waco, Oklahoma, defrauding, breaking all laws, will come out in a two year blaze of horrifying, reminding truth. It’s do or die. This magnificent, innovative, creative, free country, America, cannot withstand eight more years of exact same Obama media puppet communist driven destruction.
Clintonworld reminds me of Versailles. A whole city built expressly for the housing of syncophants and hangers-on , becoming a perpetual cesspool of intrigue. To continue the analogy, the only cure is a pitchfork wielding mob to displace the ancien regime.
Recall that the concept of "Camelot" was only sprung upon the public after JFK was assassinated, and first by Jackie, during her interview with Theodore H. White.
Nobody used or thought of such a concept while Jack Eff was actually a candidate or an office-holder. It was Jackie´s farewell noble fantasy about her slain lover, and Mr. White chose to repeat it, and make something of it, along with countless media ho´s since.
Did you see Oliver Stone´s "JFK" movie, surprisingly good, or at least gripping, considering who made it... ?
The glaring false note was having the Ed Asner character (as Guy Bannister, the ex-FBI agent in New Orleans, if memory serves me) or the Jack Lemmon character who was with him in a bar on Nov 22, turn to the other and say something like, "So much for ´Camelot´" after news of the death of JFK.
It was weeks later that that was sprung on the public and became widespread. No one said any such thing on Friday, November 22, 1963... unlike in the movie.
And given how controversial everyone involved in that administration was at that time, such a fantasy was only possible because of the tragedy.
A live grubby vote-getter became a dead statesman and American iconic hero. And all because of a little lead poisoning.
Given NSA intrusions here, I would have to skip any comparisons to today´s reality.
Other than to note that maybe Jeb Bush will want Hill-err-ee-ass Herself to be his veep nominee, for a "national unity" ticket to heal us and bring us together.
WASHINGTON — The warning resounded through the 2012 presidential campaign. Massachusetts’ groundbreaking health reform, Republican nominee Mitt Romney said, would never work for the country as a whole. Democrats widely dismissed Romney’s comments as politically opportunistic, an effort to distance himself from the plan he backed as governor. Now, given the epic scale of problems that have bedeviled the rollout of President Obama’s plan, some state legislators, insurance and hospital executives, and others around the country are returning to Romney’s refrain. Was the Massachusetts plan, in hindsight, really the best blueprint for the nation? “They should have allowed more flexibility on a state-by-state
In what could be a scene straight out of The Thorn Birds, a once high-ranking priest will finally marry the mother of his child, who happens to be the daughter of a former U.S. ambassador to the Holy See. During his time as a priest, Father Thomas Williams officiated over countless weddings. This weekend, Williams, who left the priesthood in May after admitting he fathered a child out of wedlock, will be on the other side of the altar. The former priest will wed Elizabeth Lev Glendon in a private wedding at an undisclosed location in the United States. Theoretically, the wedding cannot be held in a Catholic church—both because Williams
Ray Frazee said he can still remember the enemy plane coming straight at him as he stood on the deck of the USS Argonne docked in Pearl Harbor more than seven decades ago today. “It feels like you’re still there, you’ll never forget something like that,” the 92-year-old Wellesley man told the Herald yesterday. “One of my very best friends was killed that day,” he added, saying he notified the parents about their son’s death. Today marks the 72nd anniversary of the attack on the Hawaiian naval base where about 2,400 Americans were killed during that day of infamy in 1941. Frazee, a flute
LOS ANGELES – An Andy Warhol portrait of Farrah Fawcett currently held by actor Ryan O´Neal is worth an estimated $12 million, an appraiser told a jury Friday. New York art appraiser Lee Drexler testified in a lawsuit by the University of Texas at Austin against the actor in which the school is seeking to gain possession of the Fawcett portrait for its art museum. O´Neal contends the artwork was given to him as a gift by Warhol and did not belong to Fawcett when she died in 2009. The "Charlie´s Angels" star left all her artwork to the university; her gift
WASHINGTON–D.C. Mayor Vincent Gray compared the District of Columbia’s lack of autonomy and voting rights to the struggles Nelson Mandela endured, explaining Friday that residents connect so much with the South African leader because “we have not achieved full equality in this city.” “When we can’t have the authority to be able to spend our own money, and all our local laws need to go to the national legislative body in order to be approved, when we experience taxation without representation every day, when we don’t have a voting member of the national legislative body, I think the people can
Christmastime can still be magical in the hospital, which the patients of Riley Hospital for Children at Indiana University Health learned this week when elves rappelled down the side of the 10-story building. Dressed in pointy shoes and hats and decked out in red and green, the elves suddenly appeared outside patients´ windows to wave and smile. Meanwhile, Santa himself made his way through the inside of the hospital to visit with patients and their families and give out gifts. "Many of our patients can´t be home for the holidays," Melissa Sexton, the hospital´s special events coordinator, said in a statement. "Our
Jen Arnold, star of the hit TLC series The Little Couple, is battling a rare form of cancer. The Houston-based neonatologist, 39, and her husband Bill Klein, 38, are parents to son Will, 3, whom they adopted from China, and daughter Zoey, 2, whom they recently brought home from India. But what should have been a time of joy and celebration for the reality stars has been bittersweet, as Arnold reveals in an exclusive statement to PEOPLE. "I have recently been diagnosed with a rare type of cancer and am currently undergoing treatment, including surgery and chemotherapy.” Arnold says.
I keep reading stories about how healthy the car industry is. If that’s true, how come so many car brands have croaked recently? Since ’08 at least seven have gone wheels up: Saab, Saturn, Suzuki, Mercury, Pontiac, Isuzu, and Hummer. That’s more dead brands in the space of six years than kicked the bucket during the 30 years prior. And I suspect it’s not over yet. There are several brands — some of them big names — looking a bit green around the gills lately. It would not surprise me to see any of the following go for that ride
President Obama, on Wednesday, made a big speech about “economic inequality” and vowed to spend his last three years in office working to increase the federal minimum wage, as well as a lot of other things. Just as an aside, every time I hear talk about increasing the minimum wage — there’s a strike on today at some fast food places to raise their wage to $15 an hour as well — I have a conversation something like this. “I think increasing the minimum wage is a wonderful idea. In fact, let’s raise it to $100 an hour.” “Oh, you’re being silly.” “No, imagine.
CLEVELAND, Ohio -- Eric Kearney, the Democratic candidate for lieutenant governor facing scrutiny over his personal and business finances, revealed Wednesday that he, his wife and their publishing company owe more than $825,000 in late federal and state taxes. The disclosure followed nearly two weeks of questions that have overshadowed gubernatorial hopeful Ed FitzGerald´s introduction of Kearney as his running mate. And it came during a 95-minute teleconference with reporters in which Kearney repeatedly stressed that he was offering an "unprecedented" peek into a politician´s money matters. The session kept alive doubt about how thoroughly FitzGerald and his campaign vetted
Donna Baker of Adrian, Mich., owns an accounting firm, payroll company and retail store. Her husband, Kim, is the sixth generation owner of a dairy farm. While the four businesses are separate entities, they count as one employer under the health-care law due to a technicality — Mrs. Baker is a minority stakeholder in the 1,800-acre property that her husband’s farm sits on, plus she helps out with some of the farm’s bookkeeping. As a result, the Bakers are subject to aggregation rules in the U.S. tax code, which means they would be required to offer health-insurance benefits to their
Some members of Congress are about to get their own kind of sticker shock when they head to the new insurance exchanges. A few will get a price cut. As the Journal has reported, a provision in the health law requires lawmakers to get their benefits alongside small-business employees for the first time, and that means lawmakers’ premiums will suddenly be tied to their age. Members of Congress used to pay the same rate, regardless of how old they were, which was around $186 a month to cover just themselves on one popular plan after their employer (in this case, the
The question all week long was this: Who are you going to believe, an illegal alien or the president of the United States of America? Obviously, if it’s a president who once went by an alias, Barry Soetoro, you go with Uncle Omar, 100 percent, no questions asked. And so it was that the White House finally admitted to another, uh, misstatement — despite previous denials, Barack/Barry did sleep on his beloved Uncle Omar’s couch in Cambridge when he first moved here to attend Harvard Law School (speaking of which, we’re still waiting to see the president’s grades and his LSAT scores). But the
More young men in California rise in pitch at the end of their sentences when talking, new research shows. This process is known as "uptalk" or "valleygirl speak" and has in the past been associated with young females, typically from California or Australia.But now a team says that this way of speaking is becoming more frequent among men.The findings were presented at the Meeting of the Acoustical Society of America in California. "We found use of uptalk in all of our speakers, despite their diverse backgrounds in socioeconomic status, ethnicity, bilingualism and gender," said Amanda Ritchart, a linguist at the University of
How do you get your arms around the catastrophe known as Obamacare? Is it even possible? At this point, I’m not sure it is. The list of individual disasters which threaten to ruin one-sixth of the U.S. economy and what has been, up until now, the best healthcare system in the world is exhaustive, and exhausting. The examples I will identify here barely scratch the surface. First but by no means foremost, we have the supposedly new and improved HealthCare.gov. Except it’s not, even the visible part. Stories still abound of people still failing to get in or to get through the enrollment
DAVID CORN: I saw a president who remains frustrated with the political-media culture that he has to work within, and that he´s looking to rally people, students here, and supporters, and people within the media. CHRIS MATTHEWS: But David Corn, you skeptic. He came to us today. He came amongst us. CORN: He´s trying to rally people behind this vision that he´s been promoting for a couple years. FINEMAN: By the way, he did it the end here, today, Chris, not by defending specifics, but by explaining why he´s in the game to begin with. And I don´t know about you, he´s
The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration has announced a new five-year strategic plan to improve safety for elderly drivers and passengers. Although they are statistically among the safest on the road, the number of older drivers is increasing dramatically — and with it, that group´s numbers of injuries and deaths. Since 2003, the population of older adults, defined as age 65 and older, has increased by 20% and the number of licensed older drivers increased by 21% to 35 million in 2012, according to NHTSA. Last year, NHTSA reported that 5,560 people older than 65 died and 214,000 were injured
The most curious thing of all about the November jobs report released on Friday was the huge drop in the unemployment rate — and the fact that the Labor Department chose not to disclose that the data going into that figure are under investigation for falsification. On Nov. 19, I broke the news in my column that the Census Bureau, which collects data that goes into the jobless rate on behalf of Labor, had caught one of its enumerators fabricating interviews in 2010. The culprit said back then (and to me during an interview) that he was told to do so by

Barack Obama did not tell the whole story this autumn when he tried to make the case that Bashar al-Assad was responsible for the chemical weapons attack near Damascus on 21 August. In some instances, he omitted important intelligence, and in others he presented assumptions as facts. Most significant, he failed to acknowledge something known to the US intelligence community: that the Syrian army is not the only party in the country’s civil war with access to sarin, the nerve agent that a UN study concluded – without assessing responsibility – had been used in the rocket attack. In the months before the attack,
Dr. Ezekiel Emanuel, the hapless, goalpost-shifting so-called "architect" of Obamacare, told Fox News´ Chris Wallace on Fox News Sunday that President Barack Obama´s promise "if you like your doctor, you can keep your doctor" was absolutely true--with one important caveat: if you like your doctor, "you can pay for it." Wallace grilled Dr. Emanuel, challenging his false claims that California´s enrollment was keeping pace with the percentage of the young population necessary to keep the system afloat, and pointing out that the president´s promise on doctors would collapse once people lost their insurance or their
One definition of a pathological liar is someone who lies where the truth would serve just as well. When President Obama’s uncle, Onyango Obama, was arrested in 2011 for drunk driving, the truth — that Obama had stayed with his uncle years earlier for several weeks as a Harvard law student — would have served the president just fine. No potential Obama voter would have held it against him that an uncle he had stayed with two decades earlier was picked up for DUI. Yet the White House went with a lie, claiming that Obama had never met his uncle. Now that
The U.S. isn´t called "America the Beautiful" for nothing. Each year, millions of tourists come from home and abroad to see the country´s majestic landscape and iconic sites, from the Grand Canyon to the Statue of Liberty. But there are also cool, quirky attractions, like Vermont´s Ben & Jerry´s Factory and Tennessee´s Graceland, the former home of Rock and Roll King Elvis Presley. From California to New York and everywhere in between, the country is chock-full of incredible attractions that keep luring in visitors. Here are the best tourist attractions in every state.
Although the jobless rate in November fell to its lowest level since he took office, President Obama called on Republican lawmakers Saturday to spend tens of billions on unemployment benefits that are set to expire this month. “It shouldn’t be a partisan issue,” Mr. Obama said in his weekly address. But he said the “economic lifeline” is in jeopardy. “All because Republicans in this Congress — which is on track to be the most unproductive in history — have so far refused to extend it” Mr. Obama said. If Congress doesn’t act before lawmakers leave on their holiday break, about
