That’s why, despite the lousy polls her former opponent, President Trump, is getting, and despite not running for anything, Hillary Clinton’s favorability rating remains about where it has been since the presidential race began, currently just 41 percent, according to Gallup.
No, she’s not going to be leading the resistance, or reviving her campaign in 2020. Even Bill Clinton’s favorability was only 50 percent in November 2016, which is very unusual for a president who has been out of office for so long. So he doesn’t help.
But her potential opponents in the geriatric primary for the 2020 Democratic nomination are faring much better. Joe Biden’ Gallup favorability rating is at 61 percent, higher than any time when he was vice president. He’s got to be considering his options.
And Bernie Sanders is at 56 percent. What else does he have to do but run again? At 78, he’ll still be younger than . . . well . . . Methuselah when he ran for president.

The Clintons and the Clinton Foundation made lots of money from Russians while Hillary Clinton was Secretary of State. Peter Schweizer, author of Clinton Cash — which goes exhaustively through the various foreign efforts to influence the Clintons — wrote in March for Fox News about roubles flowing from Russia.
Bill and Hillary Clinton received large sums of money directly and indirectly from Russian officials while Hillary Clinton was Secretary of State. Bill Clinton was paid a cool $500,000 (well above his normal fee) for a speech in Moscow in 2010. Who footed the bill? An investment firm in Moscow called Renaissance Capital, which boasts deep ties to Russian intelligence. The Clinton Foundation itself took money from Russian officials and Putin-connected oligarchs.
They also took donations from:
Viktor Vekselberg, a Putin confidant who gave through his company, Renova Group
Andrey Vavilov, a former Russian government official who was Chairman of SuperOx, a research company that was part of the “nuclear Cluster” at the Russian government’s Skolkovo research facility;
Elena Baturina, the wife of the former Mayor of Moscow, who apparently gave them money through JSC Inteco, an entity that she controls;
Then there is the glaring fact that the Clinton Foundation also scored $145 million in donations from nine shareholders in a Canadian uranium company called Uranium One that was sold to the Russian government in 2010.
Of course, there’s nothing to see here. Principled Americans like the Clintons would never be influenced by cash from overseas.
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.
Okay, sure, we don’t know the context of this. But even at the very least, it looks like Hillary felt she had better things to do than to talk to Michelle Obama for a couple of hours. This is from a new tranche of emails obtained by Judicial Watch, among them emails from the secretary of… Continue Reading
Look at this. I think she’s becoming delusional. At the very least, Hillary’s campaign to say she lost unfairly is the most graceless, low-class thing I’ve seen since . . . well, since the last time I listened to Hillary Clinton talk about the election, but this is getting worse. It’s like she’s gone from… Continue Reading
This is incredible. The woman blames everyone but herself for her loss. Here, she talks about how much better then-candidate Trump had it with the RNC than she did with the DNC. Excuse me, but by how much did her campaign raise than Trump and still lose? Almost $300 million more, or nearly twice as much as… Continue Reading
The latest news indicates that the British-born citizen of Libyan extraction who committed terrorist bombing in Manchester this week had ties to Islamists in his parent’s home country. Now you remember who is responsible for the situation in Libya, don’t you? From the Washington Post: In Libya, meanwhile, an official said counterterrorism authorities have arrested… Continue Reading
Reines was a longtime spokesman for Hillary Clinton. This is kind of cute. Not easy to avoid the unwanted Trump hug, sometimes it even takes practice… A favorite moment from debate prep (9/24/16): pic.twitter.com/JAAHaqKFoa — Philippe Reines (@PhilippeReines) May 19, 2017 Continue Reading
That’s okay, because he’s a very responsible individual. Somehow she’s not in trouble because Comey couldn’t prove “intent.” Which, gosh, is exactly the same thing I told the officer last time I was pulled over for speeding. He was a tougher audience. I mean, how could she possibly have known that forwarding classified emails to… Continue Reading
Oh, this is so disgusting. I’m sorry to burden you with it. The woman lost an election because of her own incompetence, unattractive personality, and corruption, and because many voters wanted massive change from the ways things were being done in Washington. Which is what she represented. “It wasn’t a perfect campaign — there is… Continue Reading
The man who thinks Republicans “don’t give a shit” knows little about patriotism, something this flag clearly recognizes. It should be careful though that once on the floor, the Clintons, one of whom has been impeached and the other of whom endangered national security secrets for her own benefit, don’t stomp on it. H/T Washington… Continue Reading
A new book paints a portrait of a dysfunctional campaign run by Hillary Clinton, who apparently learned little from her experience losing to Barack Obama during the 2008 Democratic presidential primaries. The book, “Shattered: Inside Hillary Clinton’s Doomed Campaign” by reporters Jonathan Allen and Amie Parnes, presents an out-of-touch candidate who, along with her top aides,… Continue Reading
