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

Poll Shows Hillary in Trouble

The wheels coming off a Hillary Clinton campaign is not something unexpected. But this is very early for a meltdown.

A new CBS poll is out showing only a quarter of Americans have a favorable opinion of Clinton and less than half think she is honest.

These are not the numbers of a frontrunner. Watch Elizabeth Warren closely.

Haitians Protest Outside Clinton’s Offices

The charge is interesting, though as far as I know, not at this point substantiated: that the Clinton Foundation’s Haiti aid program was used to funnel kickbacks from foreigners who were seeking to influence Secretary of State Hillary Clinton. They want a look at her emails.

Either way, the notion of Haitians protesting the Clinton Haitian relief program does not make a pretty picture for Mrs. Clinton.

Not much going on with Obama. Thought you’d rather see this instead.

Brutal AP fact check . . . 

  • It’s a striking departure from the norm for top officials to rely exclusively on private email for official business.
  • At the very least, Clinton appears to have violated what the White House has called “very specific guidance” that officials should use government email to conduct business.
  • Skirts the issue of exchanging information in a private account that, while falling below the level of classified, is still sensitive.
  • While Clinton’s server was physically guarded by the Secret Service, she provided no evidence it hadn’t been compromised by hackers or foreign adversaries. Associated Press

Not secure . . . “To say it wasn’t compromised is to say, ‘I don’t know it was compromised,’” said Stewart Baker, a former Department of Homeland Security assistant secretary who specializes in technology and security. “It would be pretty easy for a nation-state to compromise that account, and pretty easy to hide the fact that they had compromised that account.” Politico

Clinton’s iPad wasn’t secure either, Fox News reports.

Nothing classified? Not likely . . . Some secrecy experts and former government officials on Tuesday were skeptical, noting the interesting turnabout that had a former top official insisting, for once, that none of her exchanges were secret. New York Times

How inconvenient: Hillary uses two phones now . . . At an event on February 24, Clinton was asked whether she uses an iPhone or an Android device. “IPhone,” Clinton responded. After a pause, she added, “OK. In full disclosure, and a BlackBerry.” Newsmax

Politico lists the unanswered questions

GOP: This makes no sense . . . Republican leaders sharply questioned Hillary Clinton’s explanation on Tuesday regarding her use of a personal email account during her tenure as secretary of state, with one GOP congressman calling her remarks “not plausible.” Fox News

​Dems fear emails will haunt campaign . . . While some Dems rush to her defense after the press conference, many worry her approach does little to quiet the critics. National Journal

Hillary: I Deleted Half My Emails, and You Can’t See the Server

Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton today doubled down on her email secrecy project, saying she had deleted perhaps some 30,000 emails from her time as Secretary of State that she claims were “private.” All the emails were sent from her private account and stored on her private server. Presumably, the emails she deleted may existContinue Reading

Video || Hillary’s Attack Dog Chorus

Hillary has not been exactly silent. Her goons have sought to set the stage for her arrival today. As you can hear by the echoes, the response is coordinated. And of course, this being Democratic spin, it includes attacks on the press – the usual attempt to intimidate.

Live Stream || Hillary Clinton Press Conference

Hillary Clinton will address her email issue during a press conference today, probably early this afternoon at the United Nations. Having it at the United Nations will likely limit press access. But what would you expect? I will live stream it in this space when it occurs. Looks like any minute now.
