Hillary Clinton’s Campaign Insults the Very Nation She Wishes to Lead

The putative next president of the United States has been trying recently to seem more approachable, more warm, more friendly, more of a kind-of-person-you-and-I-would-want-to-have-a-beer-with kind of politician. Presumably, achieving all of this would cause the rest of us to want to give her the keys to 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue. But when one looks beyond the charm offensive, one continues to find little charm, and much that is offensive.

A Status Update on Hillary Clinton’s Trainwreck of a Presidential Bid

It remains amazing that the putative next president of the United States hasn’t been laughed off of the political stage, but Hillary Clinton is still in the presidential race, and still trying to convince the rest of us that she should be in the presidential race. But whatever Clinton is selling, the rest of us should refuse to buy. As I have written many times before, Hillary Clinton has no business being president of the United States. Here are but the latest reasons why:

When in a Hole, Hillary Clinton Keeps Digging

The putative next president of the United States continues to do her best to convince us that she has no business being president: Remember how Clinton told us that she couldn’t use both a state.gov e-mail address for work and a private e-mail address for personal correspondence because carrying two smartphones would be too cumbersome? Turns out that Clinton carried both a BlackBerry and an iPad. Just to emphasize, this news “comes despite [Clinton’s] explanation earlier this month that she used only a personal email address on a server run from her Chappaqua, New York, residence so she would have to…

Don’t Look Now, but Hillary Clinton’s E-Mail Scandal Just Got a Whole Lot Worse

I know, I know. You didn’t think it was possible for Hillary Clinton’s e-mail scandal to get any worse. And yet, here we are: Hillary Clinton wiped “clean” the private server housing emails from her tenure as secretary of state, the chairman of the House committee investigating the 2012 terrorist attacks in Benghazi said Friday. “While it is not clear precisely when Secretary Clinton decided to permanently delete all emails from her server, it appears she made the decision after October 28, 2014, when the Department of State for the first time asked the Secretary to return her public record…

Clinton Scandal Watch (A Continuing Series)

I’m waiting for Hillary Clinton to realize that she and many of those who hang around her are too ethically compromised to be allowed near the White House, and to withdraw from presidential consideration as a consequence. Until that happens, I guess that I and others will have to keep emphasizing the point that Hillary Clinton has no business being president of the United States. I have written previously about David Metcalfe, who in the past, was responsible for FOIA implementation at the Department of Justice. Here is more regarding his concerns about Clinton’s e-mail practices: . . . the soft-spoken academic who resembles…

Ha, Ha, Ha. Funny.

Apparently, secret homebrew e-mail accounts that can be hacked, a server in your own house–where it is vulnerable to all manner of dangers–and the frustration of efforts to make the government transparent are supposed to be real knee-slappers: Hillary Clinton opened her speech to a room full of political reporters by acknowledging an awkward, if obvious, fact: she’s not known for being media-friendly. But Monday night, she also pledged to make a change. “I am well aware that some of you may be a little surprised to see me here tonight,” she said. “My relationship with the press has been at…

We Are Not Event Close to Done with the Hillary Clinton Saga

The latest news bulletins: The National Archives now want the State Department to explain how Hillary Clinton’s e-mails ended up on a private server, instead of being collected by the United States government. It sounds as though the people from the National Archives are concerned that there might have been shenanigans afoot. Imagine that. Even Democrats want an e-mail probe. According to a Reuters/Ipsos poll, “nearly half of Democratic respondents – 46 percent – agreed there should be an independent review of all of Clinton’s emails to ensure she turned over everything that is work-related.” Additionally, “[t]here was also sizable support…

The Latest in the Clinton E-mail Controversy

Behold: Hillary Clinton has a long history of frustrating efforts to promote government transparency. Read the whole thing, but here is a highlight: Remember the commodity trading, in which she somehow made $100,000 “from an initial investment of $1,000 in a matter of months for a return of almost 10,000 percent”? Clinton “threatened a campaign lawyer who had access to the [investment] material with retribution if she released the data: ‘You’ll never work in Democratic politics again,’ the lawyer, Loretta Lynch, says Clinton told her.” Charming. And this purveyor of mafia boss tactics wants to be president of the United States? Remember…
