As of now, I am in control here, in the White House

Grassley Probes Whether Hillary Used Position to Help Clinton Foundation Donor

Well, this got no coverage, pretty much, so I thought I’d give it a little bit.

While Democrats are busy pursuing the possibility that someone in the Trump camp maybe might have could have colluded with the Russians even though there’s nothing to suggest they did other than that they picked up a phone and called someone which is what you would expect them to do anyway, here is another example of the endless trails of evidence that that Secretary of State Clinton, Bill Clinton, and the Clinton Global Initiative were a giant shakedown and influence peddling operation designed to enrich the Clintons.

Who, after all, were broke when they left the White House. I mean a guy and a gal gotta make a buck.

From a June 1 statement by Iowa Republican Sen. Chuck Grassley about a letter he wrote to Secretary of State Tillerson:

Sen. Chuck Grassley today asked the State Department for information on whether then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and her staff sought help through official channels for a Bangladeshi businessman who also was a donor to the Clinton Global Initiative and Clinton Foundation. The allegations of special treatment include reports of a threatened IRS audit of the Bangladeshi prime minister’s son, living in the United States, if he did not help quash a Bangladeshi government investigation of the businessman and Clinton organization donor, Dr. Muhammad Yunus.

“Once again, Secretary Clinton’s actions have raised reasonable suspicions that she violated these rules and undermined the public’s confidence in the integrity of the State Department.”

Grassley wrote that emails show that State Department officials, including Clinton, and staff for the Clinton Foundation closely monitored an attempt to remove Yunus from his bank position in Bangladesh and that the U.S. Ambassador to Bangladesh sought meetings with the prime minister “to apply pressure in an attempt to end the investigation into Yunus.” The prime minister’s son said he was pressed multiple times by State Department officials to help end the investigation and that at one point, he was told “he may be audited by the IRS if he failed to use his influence to get his mother to drop the investigation into Yunus.”

I hope the Trump people aren’t afraid to respond to this. Hillary is doing everything she can to destroy Trump, and while payback is not how the government should operate, it at least shouldn’t hesitate to provide information about possible wrongdoing.

As probably you know, I wrote a book detailing all the scandals that supposedly never happened under Obama. I didn’t even know about this one.

Pence to North Korea: “The Era of Strategic Patience is Over”

It is. It has to be.

There are certain bottom lines to U.S. foreign policy that cannot be altered or avoided. One is that a North Korean regime with nuclear weapons that can hit the United States is an intolerable, existential threat that must be prevented at any cost.

Vice President Mike Pence Monday travelled to the DMZ, the no man’s land that separates North and South Korea, to warn North Korea against continuing with its nuclear weapons program.

“Just in the past two weeks, the world witnessed the strength and resolve of our new president in actions taken in Syria and Afghanistan,” Pence said. “North Korea would do well not to test his resolve or the strength of the armed forces of the United States in this region.”

A war on the Korean peninsula would be a horrifying catastrophe. Tens of thousands, or more, would die. But a nuclear weapon landing in Cleveland — or Washington, for that matter — would be far worse.

Okay, I know some of you wouldn’t mind a nuclear weapon landing on Washington, but you know what I mean.

This is the situation that Bill Clinton, a careless, irresponsible president, left us in when, instead of aborting North Korea’s nascent nuclear program, he caved into another catastrophic Democratic president, Jimmy Carter, who undermined Clinton by negotiating his own deal with the North. George W. Bush, his hands full fighting terrorism, didn’t do much to correct things, and Barack Obama, another careless and irresponsible Democratic president, let the problem fester and then left it to his successor to deal with it.

Trump, I believe, will deal with it. Because he’s familiar with bottom lines, and he knows that keeping a first-strike capability out of the hands of Kim Jong-Un is one of them.

They Put Obama in Office, and They are Accused of Worse Than Trump

I don’t dismiss all the charges against Donald Trump. While some of them are probably false, some are probably true. It’s just too many women, and they are alleging things he bragged about. And I think it’s disgusting. But the hypocrisy of the Democrats in an uproar at the charges — especially the outrage expressed… Continue Reading

Video || Bill Clinton Messes Up the Job

Bill’s not quite as smooth on the campaign trail as he used to be. Or at least, not as disciplined talking up someone other than himself. Or at worst, there’s a little Freudian voice in his brain that doesn’t want Hillary to be president too. H/T Washington Free Beacon. Continue Reading

How About this for a Role Model: Bill Clinton

While reporters are busy asking every Republican candidate whether Donald Trump should serve as a role model for kids, maybe they should think about asking Democrats whether the potential co-president, Bill Clinton, should be a role model too. Here’s New Hampshire Sen. Kelly Ayotte being asked Monday night during a debate with her challenger, Gov.… Continue Reading

Video || Bill Clinton vs. FBI Director Comey on Clinton’s Emails

Bill Clinton, though sounding increasingly frail, still has undiminished ability to try to con the American people. Here are his comments trying to explain away Hillary Clinton’s email scandal and put words in FBI Director Comey’s mouth, cleverly juxtaposed by the Washington Free Beacon with the actual statements by Comey.
