Hillary Clinton is Everyone’s Emailing Grandmother, Basically

By on 7.1.15 | 12:19PM

Nothing says "I'm prepared to be your next President" like a six email back-and-forth over how to use a fax machine.

Because God is good and He loves us, especially His political bloggers, the State Department began the process of publicizing many of Hillary Clinton's "private emails." The first batch hit the web last night and while there are some revealing items — the Obama Administration was clearly aware, for example, that Hillary was using a private email server, and some administration officials who claimed to know nothing about Hillary's technological reroute were caught red-handed emailing her at a very suspicious address, and she spent a lot more time chatting up Sidney Blumenthal than anyone cared to admit —  the best part of the Hillary email cache is easily — easily — her sad, confusing relationship with her cast of supporting characters.

Hillary Clinton Edited, Withheld State Department Emails

By on 6.29.15 | 12:39PM

I'm tired of writing and reading about the Supreme Court, and I've seen so many rainbows this weekend I'm pretty sure I have resultant visual color fatigue issues. So let's move on to more interesting fare than whether or not the very foundations of our republic are crumbling - specifically, whether Hillary Clinton's famed cache of personal emails was as properly sorted, dying ambassadors from yoga schedules, as she claimed at her UN press conference.

It should surprise literally no one that a further investigation into Hillary Clinton's work email seems to demonstrate that the presumptive Democratic frontrunner might have taken some artistic liberties with the "work-related" communications she returned to the State Department after her tenure. By which I mean, she was extremely selective in what she submitted and may or may not have "selectively edited" a few key communications themselves.

Hillary Clinton Abandons the Brooklyn Hipsters

By on 6.22.15 | 12:37PM

Back when she first announced that she was running for President, Hillary Clinton made such a big deal of opening an office in Brooklyn that most people thought she'd jettison the pantsuits for some high-waisted Jorts and a crop top from Urban Outfitters. Here was a candidate of yesterday, so tained with the scent of the 1990s that her very presence reminded everyone of padded headbands and Seinfeld, openly embracing the new hipsterdom of organic, fair trade, vegan coffee bars and food trucks run by people who use their profits for mustache wax. A miracle!

Boomer Losers

The Republican Party may be busily packing candidates into a clown car — yesterday it neared, finally, the “dirty dozen” required to hold either an in-depth debate on the merits of marijuana legalization or our own First Annual Republican Hunger Games (the clearly better idea, given how quickly it’d narrow the field) — but the Democrats seem to be struggling with their own field’s drawbacks. Namely, that no one currently running for the Democratic Presidential nomination is able to remember where they put their keys without one of those Brookstone echolocaters and a staff of twelve.

Hillary Clinton Charged $200K For Kids Charity Speech, Wouldn’t Interact With Kids

By on 6.16.15 | 2:05PM

It, apparently, takes a village to pay for Hillary Clinton to speak at a children's charity.

The Clinton Foundation acquires a good chunk of its $2 billion worth by collecting speaking and appearance fees for its celebrities, Bill, Hillary and Chelsea Clinton — fees that range from the tens to the hundreds of thousands of dollars. Often, the Clintons give these speeches to benefit nonprofits, as "special guests" of charities at fundraising events, or to solidify a partnership with a nonprofit that shares the same goals and aims as the Clinton Foundation, generally, in the hopes that the foundation will recoup its losses on a Clinton speech with donations and ticket sales to the Clinton event.

Hillary Clinton Releases Campaign Platform, Playlist

By on 6.15.15 | 11:51AM

Hillary Clinton announced her intention to run for President a second time on Saturday, with a long platform speech on New York's Roosevelt Island.

Apparently, we're supposed to think of Hillary as a fighter, a caricature of herself that she drove home time and again throughout her speech with stories about her mother, her upbringing in a posh northwest suburb of Chicago, and her efforts to crash through the glass ceiling on the coattails of her husband.

Hillary Clinton used the first major rally of her second run for the White House Saturday to make a populist case for her presidential campaign, declaring that the goal of her presidency would be to tip the nation's economic scales back toward the middle class's favor.

Clinton used her gender to cast her candidacy as historic and forward-looking. And she used the story of her mother, Dorothy Rodham, to show that she understands the challenges of climbing out of poverty...

While Rubio Struggled, Hillary Clinton Spent $200K Per Month on Hamptons Summer Home

By on 6.11.15 | 12:04PM

As has been made clear over the last few days, Marco Rubio is simply too poor to be President. His stubborn failure to suddenly re-manifest as a lily-white septugenarian plutocrat may cost him the highest office in the land.

For Hillary Clinton, however, being richer than God is proving no problem at all. With an estimated net worth of $100 to 200 million, Hillary Clinton should obviously be making ends meet, and unlike Marco Rubio, without the aid of her book deals (though those have undoubtedly helped). At an average of $200,000 per speaking engagement, she was clearly earning more than enough to afford the finer things. And while the New York Times frets over a fishing boat, it turns out that Hillary Clinton has had seaside adventures of her own, in a lovely summer home in the Hamptons — a rental that costs a whopping $200,000 per month.

Joni Ernst Takes on Hillary Clinton Over “Womens Rights”

By on 6.10.15 | 11:05AM

During the 2014 midterm elections, Hillary Clinton campaigned for Sen. Joni Ernst’s Democratic opponent, former Rep. Bruce Braley, and criticized Ernst for not doing enough to stand up for women.

"It's not enough to be a woman. You have to be committed to expand rights and opportunities for women," Clinton said as she stumped for Braley.

But Ernst got the last word his past weekend at Ernst’s “Roast and Ride” event in Iowa. In an interview with CNN, Sen. Joni Ernst replied to Clintons accusation with this statement:

"I would say Hillary, it's not enough to be a woman. You have to care about women's issues," Ernst said. "And women's issues here in Iowa are that we have a strong economy; we have jobs that our sons and daughters can go off to someday; we have a great educational system. And women want strong national defense. We want to know that our families are going to be safe."

Since when is supporting regulatory "equal pay" legislation and abortion laws the only way to express support for women’s rights and equality?

Hillary Clinton Will Be Your Burger Flippin’ Savior

By on 6.9.15 | 4:29PM

The best part of the upcoming Democratic Presidential primary may be the bizarre, competitive relationship developing between Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders. Hillary, who has progressive credentials but can't possibly claim to actually be progressive and run on her husband's legacy as a moderate at the same time, is bending over backwards to edge out Sanders or even his competitive advantage in key states. Already running within striking distance in Wisconsin, Bernie Sanders, who is no more a legitimate Presidential candidate than he is a legitimate choice for night manager at McDonald's.

Lately, of course, "night manager at McDonald's" has become a prime point of consternation within the liberal community. As fast food workers take to the streets in a last ditch effort to unionize the fast food industry, thus propping up service employees unions strapped for cash from all of their political contributions, "Fight for $15," the rallying cry of fast food workers demanding $15 per hour, has become an attractive target for progressive populists who want to seem like they care what the little people are doing, but would prefer to not have to touch anyone.

Political Hay

Hillary Plays the Race Card

By 6.9.15

Well, that didn’t take long.

Here we are barely at the half-way mark of the year before the presidential election — and right on cue Hillary Clinton is out there playing the race card, this time using the vehicle of voter ID cards. Ah yes. Nothing like using racism to stir the liberal base.

In last year’s election cycle Americans had to wait until the closing days of the campaign before Democrats running for office in states like Georgia, Kentucky, Maryland, and North Carolina began the usual left-wing race baiting. The Wall Street Journal noted this here-we-go-again tactic in an October 26, 2014 editorial titled: “The 2014 Race Card: Democratic appeals to racial division are worse than ever.”

True. And that’s saying something. Also, noted the WSJ: “Black voter turnout exceeded white turnout in states like Georgia and Indiana after voter ID laws passed.”
