Have nothing to do with the [evil] things that people do, things that belong to the darkness. Instead, bring them out to the light... [For] when all things are brought out into the light, then their true nature is clearly revealed...

Ever-widening Scandals Continue to Plague Hillary

Secretary of State Hillary Clinton arrives at ...

The latest Quinnipiac survey shows Hillary Clinton failing across the board: on leadership, on empathy, on trustworthiness. Her net favorability is minus 11 percent.

It may be that the serial scandals committed in the past are coming back to haunt her. It may be that new scandals just being uncovered before the old ones can be neutralized are overwhelming her. Even erstwhile supporters are having second thoughts.

A week ago two inspectors general reported that

Hillary, the Mistress of Deception, Learned from the Master

Bill Clinton

Being mentored by one of the masters in deflection, neutralization and obfuscation certainly hasn’t hurt Hillary Clinton in her run for the White House. Time after time, something that should have penetrated the steel hull of her battleship and sunk it into the pages of history has just bounced off it instead, leaving believers awestruck and opponents gnashing their teeth.

She’ll need every skill learned at the feet of her husband, Bill Clinton, who navigated his way through a political career pockmarked with potential career-ending incidents. She polished them during a Clinton-friendly interview at CNN on July 7, with partisan Brianna Keilar:

Clinton Denies Inspectors General Claims on Secret Data in Her E-mails

This article appeared online at TheNewAmerican.com on Monday, July 27, 2015:  

Democratic presidential contender Hillary Clinton, reacting to the release of reports by the inspectors general of both the State Department (where she used to work) and Office of National Intelligence that some of her personal e-mails contained national secrets, predictably responded by deflecting the real issues. Rather than directly confronting the charges, she criticized the New York Times for bringing them to light. That article, she said, “contained a lot of inaccuracies,” probably because of the heat:

“Sharing,” or “Gig,” Economy Catching Flak From Democrats

This article appeared online at TheNewAmerican.com on Thursday, July 16, 2015:  

The “sharing” or “collaborative” economy — often derided by statist politicians as the “gig” economy — continues to explode with new applications, aided by the Internet, coming on stream almost daily.

A few are well known: Uber, Lyft (chairman in photo), and Airbnb. But others, such as Zaarly, TaskRabbit, and DogVacay, are expanding rapidly as well, thanks to the unique combination of individuals seeking flexibility, income, and opportunity without the confines of the corporate world, and thanks to the Internet. And it’s starting to drive those who would control everyone everywhere crazy.

Charles Cooke, at National Review Online, spelled out the reasons for the growth of the sharing economy using Uber as an example:

Former Maryland Governor to Announce Presidential Bid

This article first appeared online at TheNewAmerican.com on Wednesday, May 20, 2015:

Martin O'Malley, Governor of the U.S. state of...

Martin O’Malley

 

Martin O’Malley, former Baltimore mayor and Maryland governor, told reporters on Tuesday that he will announce his candidacy for the Democrat Party’s presidential nomination over Memorial Day weekend.

Despite claims that he only recently had been considering the possibility of running against Hillary Clinton and liberal Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders, O’Malley has been gearing up for this since August 2013. At a National Governors Association meeting in Milwaukee, he stated then that he was already laying “the framework” for a presidential run.

And so he has.

In just the last 18 months, O’Malley has appeared in 23 states, notably in Iowa (where he already has a staff of 11 in place laying that groundwork), New Hampshire, and South Carolina, each conveniently holding early primaries for 2016.

 

On paper he appears to be a formidable opponent to Clinton, with his long list of progressive achievements. As governor he signed into law a bill that makes certain illegal immigrants eligible for in-state college tuition and another legalizing same-sex “marriage” (even though he calls himself a Roman Catholic). In order to close the state’s $1.7 billion deficit in 2008-2009, rather than cut government spending, he raised income, sales, and gasoline taxes. He also implemented a traffic speed camera enforcement program to raise additional revenues. He presided over the implementation of gun control laws that make it virtually impossible for Maryland residents to obtain a concealed carry permit. He ended the state’s death penalty and raised the minimum wage to $10.10.

He earned an award from Planned Parenthood of Maryland and a 100-percent rating from the Maryland chapter of pro-abortion NARAL.

It also caught the attention of leftist publications such as Esquire magazine, which named him “The Best Young Mayor in Country” in 2002, and Time magazine, which put him into their list of America’s “Top 5 Big City Mayors.”

None of which was new news to Bill Clinton, who wrote to O’Malley while he was still Baltimore’s mayor: “I wouldn’t be surprised if you go all the way [to the White House].” In 2006, the Clintons helped him gain reelection as governor by hosting fundraisers, headlining political rallies, and connecting him with their massive network of Democrat sponsors and contributors. O’Malley won in a walk.

To return the favor, O’Malley endorsed Hillary in 2008, raising at least $500,000 for her campaign for president, defending her on cable news, and even travelling out of state to campaign for her.

O’Malley has at least two problems, however: name recognition and distinctiveness. Current polls show him in the low single digits among likely Democrat voters, while Hillary has an attractiveness rating among the same group of 84 percent. When asked what makes him different from Hillary in ways that will draw some of her supporters to his campaign, he replied:

The thing I believe presents something of value to my country, especially in these times, is my experience as an executive, and as somebody who was able to bring people together in order to get things done.

In other words, nothing whatsoever. Which can only mean that he has other purposes in mind. After all, as one of his supporters noted, O’Malley is “very much like Bill Clinton in being slow and deliberative and calculating in everything he does.”

He could be a sparring partner for Hillary in the primaries, giving her additional airtime and adding interest to a campaign that at present is vacuous. That would work, of course, only if he stayed away from her various and sundry issues, i.e., missing e-mails, Benghazi, her foundation, and her character.

Or he could be waiting for Hillary to stumble, which would put him squarely in contention against Sanders, the aging liberal war horse from Vermont.

Or he could be polishing his political skills and his name recognition for another run in 2020. He’s only 52. In 2020, Hillary will be 73, and Sanders would be 79.

Or he could be a foil in the media’s attempt to make the present campaign look like a real election rather than just a coronation.

In any event, liberal observers will likely welcome the airy, handsome, articulate, far-left political conniver to add spice and flavor to the Democrat Party’s so far lackluster campaign for the White House in 2016.

Who Is Bernie Sanders?

This article first appeared online at TheNewAmerican.com on Friday, May 1, 2015: 

In his remarks announcing his decision to campaign for the Democrat Party’s presidential nomination, Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders (shown) fired a warning shot at those either disparaging or belittling his intentions:

People should not underestimate me. I’ve run outside of the two-party system, defeating Democrats and Republicans, taking on big-money candidates…. [My] message that has resonated in Vermont is a message that can resonate all over this country.

Polls show Sanders running more than 50 points behind Democratic front-runner Hillary Clinton while journalists have emphasized his inability to raise large amounts of cash for his campaign. Others have said he has little name recognition outside of Vermont, and that his stage presence lacks Hillary’s practiced homilies and faux sincerity. Even the Wall Street Journal wrote, “Sanders isn’t going to be president,” claiming that he only wants to redirect the political conversation more to the left, forcing Clinton to clarify stands about which she has been both opaque and obtuse.

Observers should know that Sanders has been

Will the Clinton Foundation’s Deceit Finish Hillary?

This article was first published by The McAlvany Intelligence Advisor on Friday, May 1, 2015: 

In January 2014 Dinesh D’Souza was indicted by federal prosecutors for violating federal campaign finance laws. In September of that year he was sentenced to five years’ probation, eight months in a “community confinement center,” and was fined $30,000. He also was required to perform eight hours of community service every week and must undergo court-mandated therapy for his crime.

His crime: contributing $20,000 to campaigns in the names of some friends.

Hillary has arranged for more than 1,100 donors to contribute millions to her campaign for president.

Question: How much community service will she be required to perform?

The growing public awareness and outrage at the seeming fraud, deceit, and obfuscation at the Clinton Foundation, where more than 1,100 donors weren’t disclosed, violating an agreement Hillary Clinton made with the White House prior to taking over as secretary of state in 2008, continues to build. At the forefront and in the public’s headlights for the moment is the case of Frank Giustra, which we commented on in a previous article:

Did the Clintons Sell Political Favors?

Even though Peter Schweizer’s book Clinton Cash: The Untold Story of How and Why Foreign Governments and Businesses Helped Make Bill and Hillary Rich isn’t due to be released until May 5, its potential revelations are so serious that dismissals of them are already reverberating in much of the media and from the Clinton presidential campaign.

The author was first to be impugned, being defamed because of his ties not only to the conservative Government Accountability Institute, where he serves as president, but his former position as a fellow at the conservative Hoover Institute. David Brock, the founder of the left-wing Media Matters (which says it is “dedicated to correcting conservative misinformation in the U.S. media”), called Schweizer’s project

Hillary Tells the Truth

This article was first published by The McAlvany Intelligence Advisor on Wednesday, April 22, 2015: 

On certain topics, Hillary Clinton has been forthright. She is a proud collectivist:

We must stop thinking of the individual and start thinking about what is best for society.

And this:

Many of you are well enough off that the tax cuts may have helped you.

We’re saying that for America to get back on track, we’re probably going to cut that short and not give it to you.

We’re going to take things away from you on behalf of the common good.

When it comes to the economy, however, Clinton has either joined the chorus of cheerleaders about its remarkable recovery, or has remained silent in the face of evidence that it hasn’t. On Monday, however,

Hillary Finally Comes Clean: The Economy Is “Stalled”

This article first appeared online at TheNewAmerican.com on Tuesday, April 21, 2015:

During Hillary Clinton’s road trip to New Hampshire on Monday, something remarkable occurred: She told the truth about the economy, telling her supporters that the economy has “stalled out” and, adding, “It’s not enough to tread water.”

A month ago while she was busy not running for president, Clinton never uttered a word about the weakening economy, giving mute evidence that she was unwilling to risk telling the truth and offending both the president and her Democrat supporters. This despite evidence that Americans have put economic worries at or near the top of their concerns for months on end. This despite the fact that the nation’s GDP fell off a cliff in January and February. This despite the fact that job growth since the start of the Great Recession has been half what it was during the Reagan recovery in the 1980s. This despite evidence that new business startups have continued their decline since 2009, and evidence that business investment in new enterprises has dropped sharply at the same time.

But evidence just released has so overwhelmed the Democrat stance that everything is ducky that it apparently has forced Clinton to admit what is obvious to the voters whose support she is seeking:

American Sea-Change in Attitude Toward Government

This article was first published at The McAlvany Intelligence Advisor on Monday, April 20, 2015: 

Careful observers of Hillary Clinton’s brief announcement for the presidency on April 3 noted one word missing: redistribution. She alluded briefly to how “the deck is still stacked in favor of those at the top,” but she focused instead on wanting to be everyone’s “champion,” supporting strong families, same-sex marriage, and economic opportunity.

She and her advisors no doubt read and took to heart the latest from Gallup. In 2006, by a margin of more than two to one, 69-28, those surveyed said that

Income inequality and mortality in 282 metropolitan areas of the United States.

According to a recent Gallup poll, Americans have named the federal government as the most important U.S. problem for four months in a row, noting that “dissatisfaction with government is by no means a new issue,” having been at or near the top in its surveys for years.

None of this is new news to Emmanuel Saez, economics professor at the University of California, Berkeley, or to any of his co-authors in their study published by the National Bureau of Economic Research in early 2013.

That study summarized polls of more than 5,000 Americans about income inequality in the United States and what if anything should be done about it. They were fully expecting to discover that

Astroturfing is defined simply as a more sophisticated branch of blatant propaganda where incidents are conjured to appear as something they are not. According to Public Relations Wiki, “The goal of such a campaign is to disguise the efforts of a political … entity as an independent public reaction….”

Hillary Clinton’s new low-key run for the presidency in Iowa is designed to neutralize what remains of Iowans’ cavernous distrust of her when she tried to win the caucus back in 2008. Her efforts, punctuated by a condescending attitude and an imperial presence, blew up in her face. She not only

Hillary’s Iowa Visit Was Staged

This article first appeared online at TheNewAmerican.com on Thursday, April 16, 2015: 

Presidential contender Hillary Clinton, who is driving across the United States ostensibly to talk to Americans and learn their concerns, was caught staging at least one of the meet-and-greets. And it took a British tabloid, the Daily Mail, to expose the deceit as most U.S. media were too busy fawning over Hillary’s new “common folk” approach in her latest campaign. 

Ironically, not even some of the left-wing participants, who were obviously brought in so that like-minded Americans would tell Clinton their political concerns, were let in on the deception ahead of time. Austin Bird, an intern who served with Barack Obama’s 2012 presidential campaign in Iowa, got a call from Troy Price, Bill Clinton’s former Iowa political director, asking him if he would like to sit down for coffee and discuss political strategy. When Bird arrived for the meeting, he was joined by Carter Bell, president of the University of Iowa’s College Democrats, and Sara Sedlacek who works for Planned Parenthood of the Heartland.

Nate Silver and the 2016 Presidential Election

Nate Silver is a 500-pound canary. When he speaks, everyone listens. With pundits, prognosticators, and odds makers coming out of the woodwork to predict the outcome of the 2016 presidential election, Silver is calmly putting down their efforts, examining their claims and finding them wanting, and instead calling the election a 50/50 proposition.

Of course Hillary will win the Democrat Party’s nomination. There’s nobody else even close. But the election is another matter entirely, says Silver. He

Hillary’s Unethical Behavior Goes Back Decades

Cover of "Living History"

Cover of Living History

Touting her unique life experience, Hillary Rodham Clinton launched her campaign for president on Sunday. Above all, she says, she is a grandmother who simply wants America’s grandchildren to have an opportunity to succeed:

Becoming a grandmother has made me think deeply about the responsibility we all share as stewards of the world we inherit and will one day pass on. I’m more convinced than ever that our future in the 21st century depends on our ability to ensure that a child born in the hills of Appalachia or the Mississippi Delta or the Rio Grande Valley grows up with the same shot at success that [my granddaughter] Charlotte will.

Missing from her proclamation as the savior of young people under her presidency is how she treated a sixth-grader back in 1975 who was repeatedly raped by a 41-year-old drifter. The drifter, one Thomas Alfred Taylor, requested a female court-appointed attorney, and Hillary Rodham, age 27, was assigned to defend him.
