Democrats Standing behind Bill Clinton Dec 19th 1998
I’ve been taking a lot of heat on twitter for neither calling for Roy Moore to withdraw from the Alabama race nor giving credence to either Gloria Aldred (funny how the women she scrounged up to accuse Herman Cain suddenly disappeared without any charges or lawsuits once he pulled out isn’t it) or the Washington Post over various charges (although Powerline makes a good point here)

However I think it’s time once again to remind our Democrat liberal friends who have suddenly post Weinstein become great defender of morality of this moment.

That crowd btw includes the now convicted former rep and San Diego Mayor Bob Filner who has been sentenced for his crimes along with plenty of people still in congress.

So you’ll forgive me if I don’t take these people or anyone who voted for Bill’s enabler Hillary Clinton or any of the Newspapers who defended Bill Clinton seriously when they tell me Roy Moore is beyond the pale or get swept up in hysteria.

I think I’ll think for myself thank you very much an if I decide that the charges against Moore are valid then I’ll support his expulsion if elected but until then he’ll get he benefit of the doubt from me.

Closing thought: Are any of the Democrat members of congress or liberal newspapers calling for Moore’s withdrawal from the race or expulsion if elected calling for Robert Menendez to expelled? If not why not?

Update: Don Surber as usual gets it

Caitlin Flanagan at the Atlantic is horrified. The bill for defending Bill Clinton came in. The price is her silence as Judge Roy Moore stands accused of touching a 14-year-old girl back n the 1970s.

Just like all the Hollywood apologists for Roman Polanski, Flanagan and her fellow feminists have absolutely no moral standing in this case.

Kennedy drowned a woman. He stayed in the Senate, got a Portuguese water dog, and named him Splash.

And he predates Clinton by decades as did Barney Frank (who is in that picture) and Gary Studds who retired the year before.

Clinton of course was guilty. He admitted it. But Democrats — and many Republicans — defended him, and the Senate refused to convict him for perjury and suborning perjury after his impeachment.

Now some senators want to expel Moore before the election.

Phooey. That’s virtue signaling.

In fairness it’s the desperate need to find a GOP version of the Harvey Weinstein democrat left even if they have to reach far enough into the past to a time when their GOP target was a democrat.

Update 2: Instalanche They spent 25+ years having Clinton’s back even after things were proved. I submit and suggest if Roy Moore had remained a Democrat, guilty or innocent, they would have had his today.

John Solomon and Alison Spann continue their reporting on the Clintons and Rosatom, the original Russia collusion story,
Bill Clinton sought State’s permission to meet with Russian nuclear official during Obama uranium decision

As he prepared to collect a $500,000 payday in Moscow in 2010, Bill Clinton sought clearance from the State Department to meet with a key board director of the Russian nuclear energy firm Rosatom — which at the time needed the Obama administration’s approval for a controversial uranium deal, government records show.

Arkady Dvorkovich, a top aide to then-Russian President Dmitri Medvedev and one of the highest-ranking government officials to serve on Rosatom’s board of supervisors, was listed on a May 14, 2010, email as one of 15 Russians the former president wanted to meet during a late June 2010 trip, the documents show.

Hillary was Secretary of State back then, but the State Department dragged its feet for a week or two, and apparently Bill decided to not meet with the 15 Russians on his list.

Rather, Bill cut to the chase (emphasis added),

Bill Clinton instead got together with Vladimir Putin at the Russian leader’s private homestead.

Back then Dmitri Medvedev was president of Russia, but

The head of Rosatom boasted in the report that the Uranium One deal was part of a larger Putin strategy to strengthen “Russia’s prestige as a leader of the world nuclear industry.”

Cornering one-fifth of the U.S.’s uranium supply fit nicely into that strategy, and with State Department approval, no less.

If that was not damning enough, Bill was allegedly wanting to use the trip for the $500,000 speech

to try to help a Clinton family relative “grow investments in their business with Russian oligarchs and other businesses,”

because apparently it wasn’t enough that the Clinton Foundation received $145 million in contributions from Uranium One shareholders. The Clinton relatives wanted in on Russia.

Never mind that being a Russian oligarch ain’t what it used to be,

Putin’s policy of “de-offshoring” has imposed such cumbersome controls on the business leaders of the 1990s that most have sold off their assets in Russia and decamped to London or Monaco. This trend has been accelerated by Russia’s lack of any real property rights, which has enabled the Kremlin to cut Russia’s wealthy down to size at will, often targeting the most law-abiding among them.

It makes you wonder if the emphasis would shift from “oligarchs,”  to  “other businesses,” whatever those may be.

I can’t figure out a reason for the Clintons’ boundless greed, other than perhaps they want to become the next George Soros.

They may get there yet.


Fausta Rodríguez Wertz writes on U. S. and Latin America at Fausta’s blog

Let’s take a look at the competence and morality of some of our past presidents.

Jimmy Carter was the epitome of incompetence. As a young reporter for Newsweek, I was assigned almost weekly to the “Jimmy f***-up stories.” They were many and varied, particularly his economic program that lead to double-digit inflation, double-digit interest rates and double-digit increases in the price of gasoline.

The Iran crisis demonstrated his ineptitude and held the entire country hostage for 444 days.

Lyndon Johnson was the worst president in my lifetime—a president whose policies still hold an iron grip on many American cities.

In domestic policy, Johnson shackled many through the War on Poverty. Just think how many people remain tied to the government trough by these ill-conceived programs. Moreover, we have LBJ to thank for the Immigration and Nationality Act of 1965, which created the poor system Trump faces today. The Voting Rights Act may have had noble intentions, but it has lead to the inability to ask voters for identification during elections.

Then there’s Vietnam. LBJ managed to mismanage the war so badly that the United States had its tail between its legs for nearly two decades until the First Gulf War in 1990-91.

JFK brought his tarts into the White House, but Bill Clinton had sex in the Oval Office. I have to thank Clinton, however, because his reckless acts made me rethink my political orientation.

For many years, I embraced the liberal policies backed by baby boomers like me. I even voted for George McGovern in 1972! As a journalist and an academic, I had to go along and get along with the liberal point of view. Otherwise, I would have been shamed for my stances and lost my job. In fact, I did lose one academic job because of my conservative views.

Simply put, I could not bide the disgrace that Clinton brought to the office. If someone had such little regard for the presidency, I could not support him or his party, which supported him through impeachment.

It started me down a path of evaluating my political views. I found that I was a conservative on both economic and social policies.

Sure, Nixon had Watergate; Reagan had Iran-Contra, and Bush 43 failed to clean up Iraq. But Nixon brought China into the international fold, Reagan crushed the Soviet Union, and Bush 43 brought us together for a while after 9/11. Ironically, Bush 41, who brought victory during the First Gulf War, may have been the best president during my lifetime despite his read-my-lips gaffe.

For those who criticize the Trump administration and for those who have forgotten their history, I hope this trip down memory lane might be a useful review.

Certainly, President Trump has made mistakes. But my shorthand response to critics of Trump goes like this: unemployment and debt are down; stocks are up; and Neil Gorsuch is on the bench, with more to come. To me, that’s an awfully good start!

I still miss the great Cox and Forkum.

Sometimes it’s necessary to remind people of how long I’ve been paying attention to politics/world events and that said events do not just occur out of the blue.

The following is from thirteen years ago, edited and altered because my commentary was originally directed at then-presidential candidate John Kerry, because some links are dead, and because some information needed links..

This weekend, it was reported that North Korea detonated *something* near the its border with China last week that allegedly produced a smoke plume in the shape of your basic mushroom. (

(…)

Two Democrat presidents [Carter and Clinton] tried to appease the North Koreans in 1994 by bribing them into halting their nuclear aspirations. Well, the money got transferred and spent, the oil got used, the food got eaten—presumably by very few average North Koreans–but the cessation didn’t happen. The North Korean government may not be too up on feeding its “constituents” or developing its economy, but they certainly know a couple of marks when they see them.

These are the results of negotiating with a basket-case states with nuclear capability; terrorists, by another other name. As is so with Islamist terror, President Bush must also clean up after the botched policies offered in this area by leaders of the Democrat Party.

We see that Former President Obama’s gift to the mullahs of Iran had precedent. Just a coincidence, I’m sure.

This past week, North Korea launched yet another ‘intercontinental ballistic’ missile that landed in the Sea of Japan. Again.

I’m wondering how many missiles have been launched by Kim Jong Un, his father and his grandfather before him, since the Carter-Clinton Agreement in 1994.

It’s a safe bet that there will be more.

China’s bid to influence the 1996 election for Bill Clinton stands as one of the most damning examples of foreign interference in the U.S. political process.

Unfortunately, the Chinese connection has largely been forgotten, including its continuation in Hillary Clinton’s campaign in 2016.

Clinton’s 1996 re-election campaign received millions of dollars in illegal contributions from Chinese donor that were channeled through the Democratic National Committee, according to a Senate Committee on Homeland Security and Government Reform.

Johnny Chung, a businessman born in Taiwan, had a partner, Liu Chaoying, a high-ranking military leader and intelligence officer in China. Liu wired hundreds of thousands of dollars, which illegally went to the DNC. The duo also sent campaign funds to U.S. Sen. John Kerry for his reelection bid to the Senate. Liu’s father was one of Mao’s fellow travelers.

Chung visited the White House nearly 50 times—most of them authorized by Hillary Clinton. In one visit, Hillary met with Chung and his visiting delegation of Chinese businessmen from state-run companies. After another visit, Chung paid the DNC $50,000. In exchange, Chung was allowed to bring some of his investors to see the president deliver one of his radio addresses.

Another operative for the Clintons was John Huang, who raised millions of dollars for Dollar Bill in the Asian-American community. In 1996, Huang bundled $3.4 million for the DNC—much of which was returned after a Senate investigation found that the contributions were illegal.

Charlie Trie owned a restaurant in Little Rock that was frequented by his friend then-Governor Clinton. After Clinton won the presidency, Trie went to Washington to cash in on their friendship. He thought his association could help him develop more business contacts in Asia. One of them was Hong Kong businessman Ng Lap Seng. Seng would wire a million dollars to Trie. From 1994 to 1996, Trie directly sent $200,000 to the DNC. Trie provided the rest of the money to other people who later sent that money to the DNC. Trie also helped raised another $640,000 for Bill Clinton’s Legal Defense Fund.

According to the House Committee on Government Reform and Oversight, 94 people were called to testify about the illegal campaign contributions to the 1996 Clinton campaign and the DNC. Of nearly 100 people called before the committee, 57 invoked the Fifth Amendment, 18 fled the country and 19 foreign witnesses refused to testify.

But the China connection to the Clintons didn’t end there. A Chinese billionaire gave the Clinton Foundation $2 million in 2013. The Justice Department investigated the payment from Wang Wenliang, a former delegate to the Chinese parliament. No charges were filed.

Fast forward to Hillary’s 2016 campaign and the Wikileaks emails from the DNC.

The Chinese ambassador to the United States, Cui Tiankai, requested a meeting with Hillary Clinton’s top aides in January 2016, according to an internal email circulated among the former Secretary of State’s senior presidential campaign officials.

“Chinese Ambassador Cui invited me over to the residence Tuesday for a coffee and to make a request. He wants to have an informal, private, off the record get together with a few of us to discuss the next year and the current state of US-China affairs,” wrote Clinton campaign aide Kurt Campbell in the Jan. 7, 2016, email to campaign head John Podesta.

“He asked me to host a social meal at my house in the next month. He was fairly insistent and indicated that he wanted to pass along some perspectives. I told him I’d reach out to you all to see about your judgement [sic] on this and possible availability. I’m happy to make some chili and cornbread by the fire but let’s first decide whether this makes sense. Please let me know your thinking,” Campbell wrote.

Somehow these deep connections between the Clintons and the Chinese have gone mostly unnoticed in the current kerfuffle about foreign involvement in presidential elections.

Re-edited.

By now, most regular readers know of my background in the USAF as a German/Russian linguist, replete with attendant clearance, a couple of stints stationed in Old West Berlin—pre- and post-Fall of the Wall. (Aside: despite the existence of a large group of people who did not know this and who assume that I’m an idiot, I’m very well-versed in World War I, World War II and Cold War history. They can be viewed as different aspects of the same war.)

Some of these readers think–for whatever reason–that I’m not qualified to delve into certain areas of commentary and I figured that I’d help them out.

Onward to “this morning’s” news, that Former President Obama’s DOJ allegedly approved a pre-election FISA warrant which allowed the wiretapping of Trump Towers. Be advised, FISA warrants aren’t issued for suspected mundane criminal misconduct, but for suspected collusion with foreign powers against the USA. The F in FISA is there for a reason. These warrants don’t go through the FBI [Ed. though they can be requested by the FBI] and are issued by a secret FISA courts at the behest of the DOJ [and/or the FBI]. (By the way, I’m old enough to remember when Democrats opined that the FISA process was the next step toward tyranny and tried to destroy it. If what’s being said in 2017 is true, the FISA court has, however, become more useful to them.) How was this (re-)discovered? President Trump Twitter-ranted about it this morning.

Former President Obama says that he didn’t order the Code Red surveillance on Trump Towers. From Kevin Lewis, the former president’s spokesman:

How buck-passing and non-denial of him. And, one wonders what Fox News’ James Rosen, his parents, and the Associated Press would have to say about the matter at hand.

Allegedly, the Obama DOJ requested a warrant in June of last year, but the FISA court said that the request was too broad. So, the administration narrowed its focus, tried again in October, and was successful. This would explain a lot about the pummeling of General Flynn, the attempted takedown of Jeffrey Sessions, and the Democrats’ newly found faux-animosity toward all things Russian.

Prediction: no one will confirm or deny the existence of a FISA warrant for Trump Towers. The court is, by law, a secret one and, rightly or wrongly, its three members will stay behind that veil. My opinion: it would be the right decision, though, with the rampant lawlessness in high places, that opinion could change.

And, as Dan Riehl said a few hours ago, this gives a whole new view to the June 2016 “chance” meeting between Obama Administration Attorney General Loretta Lynch and Former President William J. Clinton.

Did he (BHO), or didn’t he? And even if he didn’t, the remedies to such a far-reaching problem for the aftereffects of what the 44th president actually did do may prove more painful than the disease. This is why we told you not to elect him.

For those of you who are upset at my re-endorsement of Donald Trump after his crude remarks from 2005 I think it’s time to remind such folks and those in the MSM who are sounding high and mighty of a bit of history.

On Dec 19th 1998 right after impeachment a bunch of Democrat members of congress lined up behind behind Bill Clinton at the White House to stand behind him and support him after impeachment. Here is the video of the event.

You might recognize several current members of congress both house and senate who are now beating their breasts over Donald Trump’s words today who had absolutely no problem putting themselves out there for Bill Clinton less than two decades ago.

I challenge the MSM to ask any of those Democrats hitting Donald Trump today this question: Why do Donald Trumps words disqualify him from office but Bill Clinton’s actions not only did not, but produced this public display of support from Democrats in congress.”

The odds of them doing so are in my opinion less than your chances of winning the lottery

By John Ruberry

Last night the New York Times, using an illegally obtained copy of Donald Trump’s 1995 tax return, speculated that because of a $916 million loss listed on that return, the Republican nominee may have, yes, may have, avoided paying federal income taxes for 18 years.

With help from his wealthy father, not the government, Trump, a real estate developer, built an international business empire. And because of his Apprentice television franchise, even before his presidential run Trump was likely the most recognized business person in the United States.

Hillary Clinton is also rich. Her business–make that racket–is influence peddling. While her husband was attorney general, and then governor of Arkansas, Clinton was an attorney at the Rose Law Firm in that state’s capital city. The Clintons, aided by the Rose Law Firm, used its clout to protect themselves and Jim and Susan McDougal, their investment partners. While they didn’t make money in Whitewater, Arkansas’ first couple did their best to cover up the Whitewater scandal, which led to the convictions the McDougals, Bill’s successor as governor, and Webster Hubbell, a partner at the Rose Law Firm and a close friend of the Clintons.arkansas-sign

The McDougals ran Madison Guaranty Savings and Loan in Little Rock, which failed in the 1980s. They chose, of course, the Rose Law Firm to defend their thrift.

After emerging from the White House “dead broke,” the Clintons were still able to purchase a mansion in Westchester County, New York, one of the most expensive real estate markets in the nation. In 2001 the Clinton Foundation was formed, by this time of course Hillary was a US Senator from New York. The foundation traded off of Bill’s status as an ex-president–six-figure public speaking fees to him went to this “charity,” which offered high-priced salaries to Clinton family cronies and served as a lucrative waiting room for those Clintonistas between government jobs.

The former first couple learned that influence peddling, not property investments, was their pathway to wealth.

While Hillary was serving as Barack Obama’s secretary of state, foreign donors poured money into the “charity,” probably using their cash as down payments for favors from Madame Secretary. It worked. A majority of the non-governmental meetings Hillary had at State were with Clinton Foundation donors, which is why the foundation is commonly referred to as a slush fund.

In Illinois, where Hillary grew up, that’s called pay-to-play.

John “Lee” Ruberry of the Magnificent Seven

There’s nothing like this type of sordidness in Trump’s background.

After leaving State, it was Hillary’s turn to collect the big-money speeches, with Wall Street firms being some of her most lucrative clients. Without having been a major government figure–or the spouse of one–Clinton’s speech income just might have matched that of a Times Square busker, such as the Naked Cowboy.

In 2014 just 5.7 percent of the Clinton Foundation budget was spent on charitable grants.

Where is that story, New York Times?

Oh, do you know anyone who doesn’t try to pay as little income tax as possible?

On Tuesday I led with a piece concerning the hilarity of crying “security” with Anthony Weiner and Huma when Bill Clinton is about to be let back into the white house. In that piece I had a quote from Donny Deutsch

Panelist Donny Deutsch guessed that Trump would have no problem counter-punching with the Epstein connection whenever he was hit for his own behavior with women, as he was last weekend in a piece in the New York Times.

“Here’s the tennis game,” Deutsch said. “Donald Trump kissed a woman in a bathing suit. Trump hits back: Tell me about the president’s relationship with a guy named Jeffrey Epstein. That’s your tennis match.”

In my original piece I had video from the Washington Free Beacon story containing that entire exchange. You might wonder why I didn’t include said video of Deutsch mentioning Jeffery Epstein and see the reaction of the people at the table.

Here is why

nbc copywright

If you look at the view count you will see that seven minute clip had over 100,000 views before NBC decided to play copyright police game.

Maybe it’s just me but given how often we see stuff at mediaite et al it seems rather unusual for a news network to make a copyright claim over a clip from a news story that used as “fair use” by another news organization. Could this suggest that NBC wants to keep this clip out of the public view because it might hurt Hillary?

I can see the NBC reaction now: Nonsense, we’re not censoring the clip at all. The seven minute clip IS available IF you

Go to the Morning Joe site

Hit search taking you to the MSNBC search engine

Search for Donald Trump

Narrow the field to Morning Joe

Narrow the field to May 16th 2016

and sit through all the videos till you find the right one.

And skip ahead to the 12 minute mark on that video.

If you do so you CAN find the clip and watch the Morning Joe panel’s reaction to what Donny Deutsch says

So,  You’ll have absolutely no problem sharing this clip with people far and wide and giving them a hint about the relationship between Jeffery Epstein and Bill Clinton and how the media views it…provided you are someone like me who

already saw the clip

remembered what show it was on

knew what day it was broadcast

And knew what time segment to look for 

As for everyone else NBC says to you: Beware of the Leopard!

At the NY Post today there is a story concerning Hillary Clinton and Pay for Play

Hillary Clinton put the State Department up for sale, with top aides pulling strings and doing favors for fat-cat donors to the Clinton Foundation — including a shady billionaire, according to smoking-gun emails released Tuesday.

As you might guess the 44 newly released emails with this information generated a quick response from Donald Trump:

The revelations drew a quick rebuke from Donald Trump’s campaign, which said: “This is yet more evidence that Hillary Clinton lacks the judgment, character, stability and temperament to be within 1,000 miles of public power. She views public office as nothing more than a means to personal enrichment.”

The piece is titled Emails reveal Hillary’s shocking pay-for-play scheme and it’s written by Daniel Halper and Bob Fredericks. It’s a good piece but I do have one quibble concerning it.

The title.

There are a lot of words you can use to accurately describe the history of Bill & Hillary Clinton when it comes to “pay for play” in Arkansas, the white house, the state department and the Clinton administration.

“Shocking” isn’t one of them.
