Clinton Flips On Pacific Trade Deal; Gets to Slam Biden, Hug Sanders

The media normally treats a politician’s dramatic policy shifts as insincere or foolish “flip-flops,” at least when it’s Republicans changing their minds. Let’s see how they handle one of the most blatant flip-flops in recent memory, as presidential candidate Hillary Clinton suddenly denounces the huge Trans-Pacific Partnership trade deal that she championed as Secretary of State.

Carly Fiorina Masters the Five-Step Primary Dance

Conventional wisdom holds that the early front-runner in a wide-open primary, especially a crowded one, rarely turns out to be the nominee. It’s probably one of those “rules” that will be true until it isn’t, but at the moment there is ample evidence from past contests to back it up. Carly Fiorina is banking on that, gaining strength as the campaign unwinds.

Romneyworld Marches Against Trumponia

The Boston Globe reports that the “Mitt Romney diaspora” – that mighty “army of former aides and advisers from Romney’s long political career” – has spread out through the campaigns of 2016 GOP hopefuls, and come together in a “stem-to-stern effort that has united old comrades even as they nominally play for different teams: stopping Donald Trump.”

Clinton: ‘I Was Not Thinking a Lot’ When I Became Secretary of State

With a long line of debunked lies, shredded excuses, and abandoned spin attempts behind her, Hillary Clinton finally decided it was time to “apologize” for her email scandal. Of course, her idea of an “apology” basically amounts to: I’m sorry you Little People are too stupid to understand what I was up against, as a historic female Secretary of State.

Hillary Clinton: The Spin, the Cover-Up, and the Crime

Presidential candidates usually take pains to avoid becoming punch lines. When you’re running for the highest office in the land, you don’t want to look like an out-of-touch boob who doesn’t understand the basics of the computer technology integral to modern American life. Not so with Hillary Clinton.

Hillary’s College Plan: Bribe Kids to Vote Dem

The Wall Street Journal calls Clinton’s plan an “attempt to address a source of anxiety for American families while advancing one of the left’s most sweeping new ideas.” It’s no surprise the Left did everything it could to heighten that anxiety before terrorizing people into a “solution” that would spread its sweeping ideas. The WSJ dryly notes that information about Hillary’s plan “will be a key element of campaigning on college campuses this fall.” I’ll just bet it will.

Clinton Tax Return: $141M In 8 Years

Not bad for the Clintons, a couple that produces nothing, adds nothing to the economy, and gets all of their money based solely on political connections. Many of us are old enough to remember when liberals were very, very upset at the thought of rich people running for President – three years ago, to be exact.

Clinton’s Illicit Mail Server Repeatedly Handled Classified Benghazi Intel

Yesterday’s lawyer-lingo evasions don’t matter any more, because it was all B.S. anyway. When inspectors general discovered hard proof of then-classified material flowing through, they referred the matter to the Justice Department… and warned that future public releases of Clinton’s email could be peppered with enough secret information to threaten national security.

Carly Fiorina’s Very Good Week

First, there was an interview with Jake Tapper of CNN, in which she handled the Trump surge (saying that she shares the anger at professional politicians she feels Trump is tapping into), immigration policy, domestic security, and the Planned Parenthood videos. “Politics is not a game,” Fiorina said on Fox & Friends, “and it’s not entertainment. It’s deadly serious now. Because unless we solve some of these festering problems, and exhibit leadership to challenge the status quo in Washington, D.C., and exhibit leadership around the world, these times will continue to be perilous.”

Trump on Hillary: ‘The last person she wants to face is Donald Trump’

“Failing candidate Hillary Clinton, who is desperately trying to hold on to her lead in the democratic primary against Bernie Sanders, is knowingly putting out lies about my stance on illegal immigration,” Donald Trump says. “I said ‘Mexico is sending’— I’m not knocking immigration or immigrants, but rather am very critical of the country of Mexico for sending us people that they don’t want. Likewise I am very critical of illegal immigration and the tremendous problems including crime, which it causes.”
