Ed Klein: Clintons Knew About Weinstein; Hardly Spend Time Together

Of course they knew all about Weinstein. I’m increasingly convinced that everyone did, it was both an inside joke and one expressed openly several times. But they, like the Obamas, wanted his money and they wanted Hollywood on their side.

“The Clintons were very close, as you know, to Harvey Weinstein. He gave her tons and tons of money. Bill Clinton hung out with Harvey in Hollywood, with all the girls, and so forth. They knew about this . . . it certainly wasn’t a secret to the Clintons,” said Klein, who has a new book coming out, “All Out War: The Plot to Destroy Trump,” which is published by my publisher, Regnery.

Even liberal CNN analyst Jeffrey Toobin described the relationship the Obamas and the Clintons had with Weinstein as “a dark mark on their record.” Not that much darkness can be added to the Clintons’ record.

“I don’t think we can give the Clintons and the Obamas a pass here,” Toobin said on Anderson Cooper 360. Toobin noted that Weinstein’s behavior was widely known. “The Obamas and the Clintons embraced him, did fundraisers with him, paid tribute to him. I think it’s a dark mark on their record.”

Congress Warned: North Korean EMP Attack Could Kill 90% Of U.S.

Thanks, President Obama. Your cool, rational, visionary leadership has left us susceptible to destruction by a madman.

At the end of your presidency, which I knew would end up a catastrophe for the nation –  because you were totally unqualified, didn’t understand economics or foreign policy, and had lots of bad left-wing ideas – I thought, Well, at least it wasn’t the end of things. Now, I’m not so sure.

According to Paul Bedard in the Washington Examiner:

Congress was warned Thursday that North Korea is capable of attacking the U.S. today with a nuclear EMP bomb that could indefinitely shut down the electric power grid and kill 90 percent of “all Americans” within a year.

At a House hearing, experts said that North Korea could easily employ the “doomsday scenario” to turn parts of the U.S. to ashes.

William R. Graham, chairman of the former EMP commission and its former chief of staff, Peter Vincent Pry, said that the U.S. has ignored the warning signs for years and that North Korea’s military moves this year must be seen as a wake-up call.

After massive intelligence failures grossly underestimating North Korea’s long-range missile capabilities, number of nuclear weapons, warhead miniaturization, and proximity to an H-Bomb, the biggest North Korean threat to the U.S. remains unacknowledged—nuclear EMP attack.

Oh well, stock up on canned ravioli, buy thousands of extra rounds, and chop some firewood. That’s the best I can do for you.

HHS Secretary Price Resigns Over Travel; Did Obama Aides do the Same?

HHS Secretary Tom Price resigned Friday amid controversy over his use of a private charter aircraft for domestic travel for which he could have used commercial aircraft.

From the Associated Press:

Privately, Trump has been telling associates in recent days that his health chief had become a distraction and was overshadowing his tax overhaul agenda and undermining his campaign promise to “drain the swamp” of corruption, according to three people familiar with the discussions who spoke on condition of anonymity.

The flap prompted scrutiny of other Cabinet members’ travel, as the House Oversight and Government Reform committee launched a governmentwide investigation of top political appointees. Other department heads have been scrambling to explain their own travel.

Price’s repayment of $51,887.31 for his own travel costs and his public expression of regrets did not placate the White House. The total travel cost, including the secretary’s entourage, was unclear. It could amount to several hundred thousand dollars.

Price’s travel, after years for serving as a House member supposedly dedicated to cutting costs, appears to be inexcusable, which he seems to have acknowledged by offering to pay for his trips.

But let’s also stipulate a couple of things. With President Trump in office, the mainstream media seems to have regained an excitement for investigative journalism that it had lost during Barack Obama’s time in office. I’d like to see an investigation now of the travel habits of Obama cabinet members not involved in national security. I’d be willing to bet it would be revealing.

And where was the press while Obama himself traveled to Hawaii every single year of his presidency at a total cost that probably went into tens or even hundreds of millions of dollars in taxpayer funds? I documented the trips and called the president out on it, as did Judicial Watch, but preciously few journalists seemed to care. Obama even traveled to Washington and back to Hawaii during one of his vacations in order to sign a bill. And Mrs. Obama at least once flew separately.

Where was the outrage then? Obama didn’t need to “return” to his homeland of Hawaii every year. Is he a salmon that has to swim upstream to its ancestral waters to spawn?

Price’s actions are incomprehensible. But let’s put this in perspective before we get all worked up.

Trump Ices Expensive, Unjust Obama Equal Pay Rule

The White House this week set aside a rule crafted by the Obama White House to force businesses to disclose what they are paying people, information the Clinton administration, which didn’t happen, would have used to begin forcing equal pay. From the Wall Street Journal: A long-time progressive goal has been to use charges of… Continue Reading

Hillary Clinton Book Tour “A New Level of Greed”

“I do think at a certain point you’ve made enough money,” Barack Obama once said. But given reports that he and Michelle Obama have accepted some $65 million for their upcoming books, the “you” in that sentence obviously doesn’t mean “one,” as in “one has made enough money.” It means “you,” as in other people,… Continue Reading

Why You Won’t See the Susan Rice Unmasking Papers: They’re in Obama’s Library

Documents related to the unmasking of Trump advisors by former National Security Advisor Susan Rice have been shipped off to Barack Obama’s presidential library, where they will no doubt gather dust and possibly flammable liquids. According to a Judicial Watch statement issued Monday: Judicial Watch today announced that the National Security Council (NSC) on May… Continue Reading

Obama: Trump is “Nothing But a Bullshitter”

Well, yes, the author of “The Art of the Deal” is a pretty good bullshitter. At least he’s not pretending to be something else. According to People magazine: “He’s nothing but a bullsh–ter,” Obama told two friends early last November, describing an election night phone call with Trump, in which the businessman suddenly professed his… Continue Reading

Three Times Barack Obama Attempted to Obstruct Justice

The difference between Democrats and Republicans is that Republicans actually do, despite the polarized political climate, hold some principles that transcend their partisan agenda. Which is why you see some concern emanating from the GOP about whether President Trump tried to obstruct the investigation into ties between his advisors and the Russians, and why you… Continue Reading
