Bill Clinton

Just in case you missed it on the news, here is an updated list of the latest Clinton emails

The media never ignored my hacked emails…but amazingly they are ignoring everything to do with Hillary Clinton.

Truth Revolt has compiled a list of what has been revealed:

DATE: As of Monday, Wikileaks released its tenth batch of Podesta emails, which can be accessed here

**Newly added email topics will appear in bold-underscore, at the top of the bullet-point list featured below. This post will be updated regularly, so please check back. Readers are also welcome to send us emails or links for further investigation. 

Conservative and independent bloggers, social media users and Trump supporters are likely doing their best to sift through and disseminate the information contained in these emails and it is easy to lose track. In order to simplify, we’ve compiled a brief roundup of the more damning subjects the Podesta email chain seem to broach.

The following list is not exhaustive and includes:

Bill Clinton’s Mess

Towels and Lipstick and …

 “I stood guard, a pistol at my hip, outside the Oval Office, the last barrier before anyone saw Bill Clinton”

As seen in the above photo from April 3, 1997, Eleanor Mondale arrived for the premiere of The Saint in Los Angeles. Eleanor died from brain cancer as a 51-year-old in 2011, but a new book by Gary J Byrne, is resurrecting her name and a whole bunch of controversy about the Clintons. It is the same book that told the world Hillary Clinton allegedly gave Bill Clinton a black eye.
The former Secret Service agent Byrne claims, that things got so heated during Bill Clinton’s Presidency over his affairs that the Secret Service discussed the prospect of “domestic violence” between Hillary and her husband. Because of Gary’s close proximity to the Clintons during some of their most volatile days in the White House, the authors’ testimony of his experiences with Bill and Hillary are being closely followed.

‘Having witnessed the personal and political dysfunction of the Clinton White House – so consumed by scandal and destroying their enemies, real and imagined – Byrne came to understand that, to the Clintons, governing was an afterthought.
Gary has likened President Clinton’s alleged revolving door of women, to running a brothel instead of leading the country via the White House.
In  his upcoming book, Crisis of Character, Byrne claims while President Clinton was having an affair with Monica Lewinsky he was also having one with former Vice President Walter Mondale’s daughter, Eleanor Mondale.
In the book, the author writes, “There before us was E! Network host, Eleanor Mondale . . . and President Clinton in a compromising position, that is, making out on the Map Room table.”

According to Byrne, he was “The last barrier before Monica Lewinsky saw Bill Clinton.” Moreover, Lewinsky was jealous of Mondale’s relationship with the President. Bill Clinton’s White House was a seedy “brothel” where the “horndog” President entertained a veritable harem of mistresses, the former US Secret Service agent has claimed.

The shit fight and rat-fucking has begun, Trump gets his hands dirty on Hillary

This election in the US is going to be awesome. The donnybrooks are going to be filthy.

Last week Hillary Clinton attacked Donald Trump and he has hit back with a vicious and nasty attack.

Three days after emerging as the all-but-certain Republican nominee for president, Donald Trump launched a full-scale attack on Hillary Clinton over the way she handled her husband’s infidelity.

Trump, whose derogatory remarks about women have fuelled his deep unpopularity among female voters, told supporters in Eugene, Oregon, that nobody “maybe in the history of the country, politically, was worse than Bill Clinton with women.”

“He was a disaster,” Trump said. “I mean, there’s never been anybody like this, and she was a total enabler. She would go after these women and destroy their lives.   Read more »

Can Donald Trump beat Hillary Clinton?

Well, the pundits say no, or have said no up until recently.

They all thought he would get spanked by the GOP machine but it turns out it was Trump dishing out the spankings.

Now the pundits are having to recast their thinking. They are starting to realise that all head-to-head polling to date hasn’t accounted for Donald Trump attacking Hillary Clinton directly. He will start doing that soon…he’s already got a nickname for her ‘Crooked Hillary’.

How would Donald Trump fare in a general election against Hillary Clinton? The conventional wisdom is that he wouldn’t stand a chance. The GOP is divided. His campaign, despite a recent spate of landslide primary wins, appears to have its own civil war going on. His favorability numbers are at historic lows for a nominee.

The case against Trump’s electability is strong. But it is also perhaps overstated. The Manhattan billionaire does have a narrow path to the White House. In fact, he may be the GOP’s most electable option at this point, at least among the candidates who are actually still running for the job.

John Kasich argues he’s the only guy who can beat Clinton, an idea mostly predicated on his performance in head-to-head election polls. But head-to-head polls this far out, historically speaking, are not all that predictive, and Kasich has struggled to turn his on-paper attractiveness into actual votes at the ballot box.

Ted Cruz, meanwhile, would likely be the most right-wing nominee since Barry Goldwater. His act appears to have worn thin among even the Republican grassroots, his natural constituency. Cruz might somehow still manage to pull the nomination away from Trump, but there’s approximately zero reason to believe he can win over the swing voters who typically decide presidential contests.

So back to Trump, who still has a few things going for him. His general election strategy, such as it is, seems to be predicated on two strategies: pivot left as far as possible and launch a scorched earth campaign against Clinton.

Bill Clinton tells the truth inadvertently

No, not about Monica Lewinsky but about Barack Obama:

Monday night in Spokane, Wash., former President Bill Clinton praised his wife, presidential candidate Hillary Clinton, by contrasting her to what he called “the awful legacy of the last eight years” under President Obama.

Although a Clinton spokesperson has since walked back Bill’s apparent gaffe, that couldn’t have gone over well at the White House — or, at any rate, at the mansion in Cuba where President Obama was staying just then — but Clinton was right. Barack Obama has left an awful legacy, and the next president, whoever it is, will have a lot to deal with. Fortunately, the next president — whether it’s Hillary, Donald Trump or Ted Cruz, or even Bernie Sanders — will probably be a better president.

For one example of Obama’s “awful legacy,” we need look no further than the terror attacks this week in Brussels. These attacks, which killed dozens and injured close to 200, were perpetrated by the Islamic State, the group that Obama once disparagingly called a “jayvee team.”   Read more »

Hillary in real trouble now, and not from Bernie Sanders

Hillary Clinton’s campaign now hangs on a knife-edge.

The FBI has confirmed that there is an active investigation into her lackadaisical security around top secret emails.

The FBI formally confirmed that its investigation connected to Hillary Clinton’s private email server remains ongoing in a letter released on Monday.

The letter from FBI general counsel James Baker comes one day before the New Hampshire primary.

The message does not offer new details about the probe, which the bureau has been reluctant to discuss. However, it represents the FBI’s formal notification to the State Department that it is investigating the issue.

Since last September, “in public statements and testimony, the Bureau has acknowledged generally that it is working on matters related to former Secretary Clinton’s use of a private e-mail server,” Baker wrote to the State Department.

“The FBI has not, however, publicly acknowledged the specific focus, scope, or potential targets of any such proceedings.   Read more »

The world’s greatest gun salesman coming to NZ?

So who wants the world’s greatest gun salesman, Barack Hussein Obama, to visit New Zealand?

Turns out a good few of the population.

Barack Obama is the person New Zealanders most want to visit New Zealand this year, according to a Herald-DigiPoll survey.

Asked which VIP they would most like to come to these shores, nearly half of respondents chose the US President. Pope Francis won 19 per cent of the vote and Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau came third with 11.5 per cent.

Obama has never visited New Zealand during his seven years as US President. His second presidential term comes to an end this year so he is running out of time to make an official visit.

US Ambassador to New Zealand Mark Gilbert said there was no lack of interest – Obama had told him personally that he would like to travel to this country.

Gilbert said despite the popular belief that a president’s mandate waned in their final year, Obama still had “much to get done” in 2016.   Read more »

What would you do?

Wendyl Nissen tries to explain that she would indeed stick around with a cheating husband…

None of us knows whether we would stand by our man until it happens to us.

As Colin Craig paraded his wife Helen in front of the media as evidence he is a very nice man, despite allegations of inappropriate behaviour and rumours of harassment, many women would have watched her strained performance and felt several things.

Pity for the position a man who supposedly loves her has put her in. Admiration for the strength it took her to do it and deep sadness that she is married to Craig and will continue to be.

And then they would have asked themselves the question. Would I stick around if that happened to me?

What we don’t know about women in Helen’s shoes is what has gone on before.

Let’s be realistic. If you’re married to a politician you don’t see a lot of him. It’s all meetings and phone calls, flights to catch, endless nights away, handshakes and beers, time massaging not only his ego but those of his people and party.

You never see him and when you do his head is in the cloud of self-love.

I wouldn’t be surprised if Helen’s appearance in front of the TV cameras was the most time she has spent with Craig in a very long time.

Shelley Bridgeman says wheeling out political wives is ‘demeaning and humiliating’

A good observation by Shelley Bridgeman about Monday’s shameful press conference by Colin Craig.

By wheeling out his wife in times of strife, Colin Craig was observing a tradition beloved of male politicians.

He was merely using his nearest and dearest in an attempt to sanitise his image. In a statement, his wife, Helen Craig, said: “I do not often speak to the media but I choose to stand with my husband here today in full love and support of him”.

If those words sound familiar, even somewhat plagiarised, it’s probably because of the Tammy Wynette song Stand by Your Man – the lyrics of which make me feel a little queasy:

“You’ll have bad times, and he’ll have good times
Doin’ things that you don’t understand
But if you love him, you’ll forgive him.”

Then, of course, the famous chorus goes: “Stand by your man, and show the world you love him”.

It’s difficult to believe that politicians are still taking inspiration from a sentimental song that has its origins in the 1960s.

How can anyone think such a retro approach to indiscretions and blind loyalty is the best response in the 21st century?

Musing of the Day

If I understand the history correctly, in the late 1990s, the President was impeached for lying about a sexual affair by a House of Representatives led by a man who was also then hiding a sexual affair, who was supposed to be replaced by another Congressman who stepped down when forced to reveal that he too was having a sexual affair, which led to the election of a new Speaker of the House who now has been indicted for lying about payments covering up his sexual contact with a boy.


And we get all into a tizz about pulling a ponytail.  Yet these are the people we elect to positions of power.  We have our own.  One fled the country.  One’s still running a major city somewhere.  We had a party leader that went to jail.

And there is another party leader
