Hillary Clinton corruption

Will the Clinton Foundation Mark the Fall of Our Republic?

Roger L. Simon, PJ Media

No matter how extreme the future revelations of Julian Assange and others turn out to be, the truth about the Clinton Foundation is already clear. Whatever its original intentions, this supposed charity became a medium to leverage Hillary Clinton's position as secretary of State for personal enrichment and global control by the Clintons and their allies. 

The U.S. Department of Clinton

Kimberly A. Strassel, The Wall Street Journal

This is the week that we finally learned why Mrs. Clinton used a private communications setup, and what it hid. This is the week, in short, that we found out that the infamous server was designed to hide that Mrs. Clinton for three years served as the U.S. Secretary of the Clinton Foundation.

Clinton’s Bad Trade

Eamonn Fingleton, The American Conservative

Even by the normal standards of American politics, Clinton’s inconsistencies have been breathtaking. And in no area has this been so obvious—and so electorally significant—as in international trade.

Cleveland vs. Philadelphia

Patrick J. Buchanan, The American Conservative

Do Americans share Philadelphia’s belief in Clinton’s greatness and in the magisterial achievements of the Obama presidency? Let us see. Fifty-six percent of Americans believe Clinton should have been indicted; 67 percent believe she is neither trustworthy nor honest. And 75 percent of Americans think that, under Obama, the nation is headed in the wrong direction.

Hillary’s poll numbers continue fall

Ben Wolfgang, The Washington Times

Clinton's numbers have slipped because she has been through a grueling primary process where young people don’t see her as fighting for their issues and independents being skeptical of her character. 

What Jeb and Hillary Have in Common

Peggy Noonan, The Wall Street Journal

Jeb is a Democrat’s idea of what a Republican contender should be. Among Republicans of course he has some supporters, but the only really rabid pro-Jebbers I’ve met the past few months are former Bush 41 and 43 ambassadors who want back in the game. Of more immediate possible import, talks with Jeb donors suggest theirs was not passion money but canny financial bets placed when he was inevitable.

Clinton leads Bush, Rubio, Walker in head-to-head match-ups: poll

David Sherfinski, The Washington Times

Mrs. Clinton, the 2016 Democratic presidential frontrunner, leads former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush by 8 points, 48 percent to 40 percent, she leads Sen. Marco Rubio of Florida by 10 points, 50 percent to 40 percent, and she leads Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker by 14 points, 51 percent to 37 percent, a new NBC News/Wall Street Journal poll said.

Hillary Will Glide Above It All

Peggy Noonan, The Wall Street Journal

Mrs. Clinton is almost certainly about to glide to her party’s nomination. There will be a few bumps. She will occasionally be pressed and challenged on various questions. There will be back and forth. But her Democratic opponents will not attack her character, her history, her financial decisions, her scandals. They will not go at her personally. She will emerge dinged but not damaged. No one will ravage the queen.

Scandals Only Make The Clintons Stronger

Matt Latimer, Politico

A little newsflash about our past (and probably future) First Family, who pundits, long predicting the Clintons’ coronation, are now suddenly beginning to count out: Scandal surfing is what they always do. They skip the top of the waves, sometimes even giving the impression they might succumb to them. But they never do.

The Hillary Clinton Paradox

Peggy Noonan, The Wall Street Journal

It is simply unbelievable that a person whose way of operating is so famously and chronically sketchy can be chosen as president. Her policy judgments throughout her career will come under question. She is good at politics in terms of how she perceives the game and generally makes decisions within it—good enough to be an almost certain presidential nominee. Yet she is charmless on the stump and seems always to be hiding something in interviews. In speeches she continues to do strange things, such as speaking with a Southern accent this week in South Carolina.

Cruz and Clinton are winning the 2016 social media race

The Week

A new study from George Washington University's Graduate School of Political Management found that, at least by social media standards, Hillary Clinton and Ted Cruz are leading the 2016 presidential race. The report looked at how well candidates' campaigns fared by comparing the popularity of candidates' names and websites, as well as what words are shared in conjunction with candidates' names.

Clinton is banking on the Obama coalition to win

Anne Gearan, The Washington Post

Hillary Rodham Clinton is running as the most liberal Democratic presidential front-runner in decades, with positions on issues from gay marriage to immigration that would, in past elections, have put her at her party’s precarious left edge. The moves are part of a strategic conclusion by Clinton’s emerging campaign: that it can harness the same kind of young and diverse coalition as Barack Obama did in 2008 and 2012, bolstered by even stronger appeal among women.

It’s Not About Hillary’s Scandals: It’s Her Ideas Stupid!

By Richard A. Viguerie, CHQ Chairman

To win in 2016 Republicans must stop treating Hillary Clinton's scandals like a silver bullet and start telling voters what the election of Mrs. Clinton would mean, and drawing a sharp and clear contrast between conservative policies and those far-Left policies upon which Hillary Clinton is already campaigning. But so far Republicans have given Hillary Clinton a pass on her truly radical ideas and policies – and instead played to her strongest point – the ability to weather a scandal.

Senator Bernie Sanders Calls Hillary Clinton Foundation Money ‘A Very Serious Problem’

Arlette Saenz, ABC's Good Morning America

The two-term Vermont senator announced he will run for president in 2016. Sanders, the longest serving independent lawmaker in congressional history, will run as a Democrat in the primaries – the first official challenger to former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton.Sanders said he is concerned by the millions of dollars flowing into the Clinton Foundation at a time when he thinks money plays too strong a role in politics. “It tells me what is a very serious problem,” Sanders said in an interview with ABC News’ Chief White House Correspondent Jonathan Karl. 

The Proof of the Clintons' Wrongdoing

Ron Fournier, National Journal

Hillary Clinton seized all emails pertaining to her job as secretary of State and deleted an unknown number of messages from her private server. Her family charity accepted foreign and corporate donations from people doing business with the State Department. She violated government rules designed to protect against corruption and perceptions of corruption that erode the public's trust in government. She has not apologized. She has not made amends: She withholds the email server and continues to accept foreign donations. That's what this is about.

Clinton Foundation CEO admits to disclosure errors on tax forms

Marisa Schultz, New York Post

The head of Bill and Hillary Rodham Clinton’s foundation admitted Sunday to making financial-disclosure errors on their tax forms. “Yes, we made mistakes, as many organizations of our size do, but we are acting quickly to remedy them, and have taken steps to ensure they don’t happen in the future,” Maura Pally, acting CEO of the Clinton Foundation, posted on its blog Sunday.

Hillary Clinton and the Death of Truth in Liberal America

The latest, and perhaps final chapter of America's surrender to moral relativism, and the elimination among America's elite of any allegiance to objective fact as the standard by which all matters must be judged, is playing out in the failure of liberals and Democrats to confront the facts of the rapidly evolving scandal regarding foreign government contributions to the Clinton Foundation, Bill Clinton’s speaking fees and policy-making by Hillary Clinton while she was Secretary of State as documented in Peter Schweizer's new book “Clinton Cash.”

Reporter Who Offered To Give Bill Clinton Oral Sex Calls "Clinton Cash" Author "Right-Wing Hatchet Man"

Real Clear Politics

On Thursday's broadcast of MSNBC's The Last Word with Lawrence O'Donnell, journalist Nina Burleigh dismissed the Peter Schweizer, the author of the highly-anticipated upcoming book Clinton Cash, as a "right-wing hatchet man." Burleigh said "it's not good" that major newspapers like The New York Times and The Washington Post had to "farm out" their work. Burleigh argued the outlets could have done the investigative work on their own because "[the] material is already out there."
