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

Psaki: Ethics Deal Broken? No problem

Algeria, which had human rights problems and was heavily lobbying Hillary Clinton’s State Department to get in its good graces, gave half a million bucks in 2010 to the Clinton Foundation, which didn’t follow the protocol of getting approval from the State Department, according to the Washington Post.

State Department spokeswoman Jen Psaki said, well it was just one case, and we don’t care.

“The fact that the process was not followed in this particular incident does not raise concerns with us,” Psaki said.

Do we know if this happened other times?

Got no idea, said Psaki.

Carly Manhandles Hillary

Carly Fiorina left blood on the floor Saturday during her remarks to Iowa conservatives at this weekend’s GOP presidential cattle call.

Like Hillary Clinton, I have traveled around the globe. Unlike her, I have accomplished something. You see, Mrs. Clinton, flying is not an accomplishment. It is an activity.

Not saying Fiorina would be the best candidate, or the worst. But there’s no question a woman can go after Mrs. Clinton in a way that a man can’t without risking looking like a bully.

Have a look.

Hillary Clinton, Country Gal

This video is near the top of Drudge, so you might have seen it, but I thought it was amusing enough that I wanted to run it anyway for you here.

It’s a country music song by a new PAC, Stand With Hillary, which says it will be selling Hillary to Latinos and workin’ folks.

Promoting Hillary as country seems a little like trying to frame Al Shaprton as a member of the British aristocracy. I mean, she’s a Chicago girl who went to Wellesley, for goodness sake. True, she stuck it out in Arkansas for several years and even learned to affect a Southern accent, but for the past two decades she’s been a confirmed Washingtonian and a very wealthy denizen of a ritzy New York City suburb.

She’s a mother, a daughter, and through it all, she’s a lovin’ wife, the singer croons. Well, every woman is a daughter, so no big deal there. And yes, she’s a mother, but that’s not a rare thing. But a lovin’ wife? Sorry, but we heard too many stories while I was covering the Clinton White House of her throwing porcelain lamps at Bill. On the other hand, I suppose, yes, she certainly did stand by her very naughty man.

Notice a little symbolic touch in the video – the woman drives the motorcycle, and the man climbs on back.

According to the Washington Post, Stand with Hillary is a California-based project of Daniel Chavez, a longtime Democratic political operative, and media producer Miguel Orozco, who wrote the song. Orozco appears to be the guy on the left playing guitar in the video.

Orozco is the same guy wrote this on behalf of Obama in 2008. It’s catchier, though grindingly repetitive.

How Obama’s Legalization Edict Could Make Hillary President

President Obama’s upcoming unilateral legalization of millions of illegal immigrants is not just about amnesty, changing the culture, encouraging future illegal immigration, and so forth.

It’s about who will be president in 2016. It’s about creating a massive new population of potential Democratic voters for shady operators on the left to target.

But wait a second. These people can’t vote, you say. They’ll just be legal residents. It takes years to become a citizen! And only citizens vote.

Think again.

Hillary and Obama

According to a study by two researchers at Old Dominion University, approximately 6.4 percent of non-citizens voted in in 2008, and 2.2 percent voted in 2010. And of course, non-citizens vote overwhelmingly Democratic.

Think of it this way. The number is more than enough to have swung the 2008 Minnesota Senate election to Democrat Al Franken, who won by 312 votes. If Franken had lost, Obama would not have had the 50th vote he needed to pass Obamacare.

This is serious stuff.

Let’s say Obama, as many reports suggest, gives legal status to 4 million illegals. That could mean another 240,000 illegal votes in 2016 – 6.4 percent of 4 million – most of them for Democrats.

Can you say Florida recount? Such a number could swing a critical state to the Democratic nominee.

According to Fox News, non-citizens end up voting because, once they are legal residents, they can go get a driver’s license, as stipulated by the 1993 federal Motor Voter Act. That’s where the problem starts:

In some states, the driver’s license and voter registration application are on the same form, and the applicant simply signs. In small print, the form says applicants acknowledge they are U.S. citizens. In other states, voter registration is a separate form and applicants check a box.

In either case, once signed, the forms are automatically sent to the county or state registrar of voters, and the name is added to voter rolls. State DMV officials are not required to authenticate citizenship.

Non-citizen voting is already pervasive:

The problem came to light recently in North Carolina, which compared its voter rolls against a federal immigration database. The cross-check of 10,000 voters found 1,425 likely non-citizen voters, including 109 illegal immigrants or so-called “Dreamers.”

As you can see, Republican efforts to require photo IDs to vote won’t solve the problem, because these people have photo IDs.

ONLY FOUR STATES REQUIRE PROOF OF CITIZENSHIP TO REGISTER TO VOTE: Kansas, Arizona, Georgia and Alabama. The only solutions are for more to require proof – try getting that through the legislature without being tagged as racist – or for states to purge non-citizens from the voter rolls by comparing their list to a federal immigration database. Virginia, Iowa, and Florida tried this, but the ACLU put a stop to it.

Some non-citizens will knowingly vote illegally for the Party promising them future legalization and lots of free stuff while they wait. Others innocently think that, since they’re here legally, they can vote.

Either way, Democratic operatives herding them to the polls won’t be requiring proof of citizenship either.

Hillary: I was talking about Trickle Down Economics!

Hillary Clinton Monday tried to remove herself from the grip of her latest, and among her worst, gaffes – her trailblazing economic theory that businesses don’t create jobs.

Clinton said the comment, which she made last week, was just an attempt to say that what liberals like to call “trickle down economics” doesn’t work.

According to Buzzfeed’s Ruby Cramer, Clinton explained:

“The Republican alternative is a discredited economic theory that will hurt middle class families,” Clinton said. “So-called trickle-down economics has failed.”

“I short-handed this point the other day, so let me be absolutely clear about what I’ve been saying for a couple of decades.”

“Our economy grows when businesses and entrepreneurs create good-paying jobs here in America and workers and families are empowered to build from the bottom up and the middle out — not when we hand out tax breaks for corporations that outsource jobs or stash their profits overseas.”

Cramer protectively asserted, “The clarification made clear that the remark was a botched line.”

Well, as Dr. Freud might say, there are no accidents. Only accidental revelations.

Sure, Hillary cannot possibly believe that corporations don’t create jobs. I mean, NBC created one for her daughter, right? But her sentiments toward the job creators are clear. And that was the point of her gaffe.

Here it is again, smug tone and all.

Actually, trickle down economics, also known as supply side economics, does work. In fact, her husband rode the wave of growth sparked by Ronald Reagan’s tax cuts until he finally produced a recession as he was leaving office in 2000.

Hillary’s “You Didn’t Build That” Moment

Hillary Clinton, who along with her husband Bill knows something about the economics of making money, is so desperate to get to the left of Sen. Elizabeth Warren, who might challenge her, that she’s saying things she knows aren’t the least bit true.

Really? Businesses don’t create jobs?

That’s what she said:

Don’t let anybody tell you that raising the minimum wage will kill jobs. They always say that . . . Don’t let anybody tell you that, you know, it’s corporations and businesses that create jobs. You know that old theory, trickle-down economics. That has been tried, that has failed. It has failed rather spectacularly.

The difference, actually, is that President Obama deserves more credit. When he said “you didn’t build that” to owners of businesses, he actually believed it. Hillary knows better. But she’ll do or say whatever it takes.

Hillary Heckled by Bullhorn-Bearing Crank

Hillary Clinton was performing at her latest paid speaking gig over the weekend, a presentation to the American Academy of Pediatrics, when she was suddenly in interrupted in the worst way. Have a look.

I have to say, her response before the group of 3,000 kid doctors hit back pretty nicely: “You know, there are some people who miss important developmental stages,” she quipped.

Hillary Clinton Flirts With Obama

I imagine this was less gratifying for Obama than having Gwyneth Paltow flirt with him. Still, she probably makes more sense over dinner than Gwyneth does. “I have a history with charismatic, attractive men who just wear me out,” she gushed Thursday. I think her men have worn all of us out. Hillary was speakingContinue Reading

Dear Saul . . . Love, Hillary

Newly obtained letters between the young Hillary Clinton and Rules for Radicals author Saul Alinsky show that Hillary had a years-long and even personally close relationship with the leftist organizer that lasted right through and beyond Yale Law School. According to the Washington Free Beacon: Previously unpublished correspondence between Hillary Clinton and the late left-wingContinue Reading

White House: “A Good Time Was Had By All”

That’s the best we can get out of the White House about how things went down with the awkward encounter between President Obama and Hillary Clinton at a Martha’s Vineyard A-List gathering just days after she dissed his foreign policy. Hillary told reporters before the party, a celebration of Democratic political fixer Vernon Jordan’s wife’s birthday, that theContinue Reading

Hillary: Bill was Abused by His Mother

Hillary Clinton claimed Bill Clinton’s sex mania resulted from abuse he suffered from his mother, Virginia Kelley, as a child, according to Pulitzer Prize winning author Lucinda Franks. Franks interviewed Hillary a year after the Monica Lewinsky story broke but chose not to publish the information at the time. Now it’s coming out as part of aContinue Reading

Hillary: Grandchild Might Keep me from Running

Hillary Clinton says becoming a grandmother might keep her off the campaign trail. Hillary spoke with Charlie Rose: I’m about to have my first grandchild, which I’m thrilled about. I can’t wait. I want to see what that feels like. I’m not going to skip over it. I want to really be present, as I meet this …Continue Reading
