Hillary Clinton's lies - Power Line (blog)
"...Theoretically, it should be possible to keep up with Hillary Clinton's lies. She has given so few press conferences and interviews, we don't have a lot of material to work over. Yet Clinton achieves something like perfect falsity when she speaks; she fails to utter a true word. She is a phenomenon. A capable Republican candidate should be able to reckon with the phenomenon, but a phenomenon she is. Hillary Clinton's lies is the blunt heading that Noah Rothman places over his Commentary post addressing Clinton's mind-blowing CNN interview this week. I wrote briefly about Clinton's CNN interview in Hillary's Hellman factor. Rothman patiently explores the falsity of Clinton's blizzard of lies and makes a valuable contribution. Attention should be paid...." see full article

Hillary Clinton's Trustworthy Trap - TIME
"...Trustworthiness is a tricky thing in politics, a label that everyone demands but no one fully deserves. The reason has less to do with the integrity of the players than the rules of the game. Distortion, denial, defamation they all work. Only a straight-talking sucker would really play it straight all the time.So one must be careful not to pass too harsh a judgement on Hillary Clinton, for whom polls reveal a real perception problem when it comes to being honest or trustworthy. CNN's national polling sample says 57% of Americans don't think she is either. ABC News and the Wall Street Journal put that number at 52%..." see full article

Hillary Clinton's claim that 'everything I did [on e-mails] was permitted' - Washington Post (blog)

"...But that does not mean that, when Clinton was secretary of state, there were not already in place State Department rules on how to handle e-mails and whether to use a personal e-mail account. While Clinton says that other secretaries did the same thing, none had set up an exclusive and private e-mail server for all of their departmental communications. (In fact, only Colin L. Powell has ever said he sent e-mails from a personal account, so Clinton's use of plural is misleading.)The rules also quickly became clearer. In 2009, just eight months after Clinton became secretary of state, the U.S. Code of federal regulations on handling electronic records was updated: Agencies that allow employees to send and receive official electronic mail messages using a system not operated by the agency must ensure that Federal records sent or received on such systems are preserved in the appropriate agency record-keeping system. The responsibility for making and preserving the records is assigned to the head of each federal agency. ..." see full article

Hillary Clintons Front Porch Campaign - Politico

"...Hillary Clinton wasn't being evasive in her Tuesday afternoon interview with CNN's Brianna Keilar when she evaded direct questions about Bernie Sanders, tax increases, sanctuary cities, the Clinton Foundation, voter trust in her, her wiped email server and even replacing Alexander Hamilton's face on the $10 bill. By wrapping each query in a vague but intelligible non-answer, Clinton gave new evidence that she's running what our 19th century America forebears called a front-porch campaign for the presidency.Reticence was the distinguishing element of 19th century presidential campaigning, as Richard J. Ellis and Mark Dedrick inform us in their 1997 essay, The Presidential Candidate, Then and Now. For much of that century, many thought it undignified for a presidential candidate to pontificate his stands on the issues or openly stump for the job. This applied double to presidential candidates who were running for reelection. I meddle not with elections. I leave the people to make their own president, said Andrew Jackson during his 1832 presidential reelection campaign. It was OK for other politicians to ring the bell for their candidates, but the presidency itself was supposed to seek the man, not the man seek the presidency...." see full article

Benghazi panel says Hillary Clinton lied during CNN interview - Portland Sun Times
"... The committee immediately subpoenaed Clinton personally after learning the full extent of her unusual email arrangement with herself, and would have done so earlier if the State Department or Clinton had been forthcoming that State did not maintain custody of her records and only Secretary Clinton herself had her records when Congress first requested them, Gowdy added.Clinton is already suffering from credibility issues. A poll last month showed that swing states such as Florida, Ohio and Pennsylvania did not view her as a trustworthy person...." see full article

Seven Of The Most Blatant Lies In Hillary's CNN Interview - Daily Caller
"...Commentators, pundits and journalists the world over were quick to point out that former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton's first television interview since her April 12th presidential campaign announcement was full of misleading statements and outright lies.Here are seven of the most questionable statements Clinton made in the 20-minute interview with CNN's Brianna Keilar:1. People should and do trust me. Would you vote for someone that you don't trust? Keilar asked Clinton in a discussion of the polling numbers about voters perception of her trustworthiness following the drama over her private email server as secretary of state...." see full article

Where does Hillary Clinton stand? Don't ask her. - Vox

"...Whom Clinton wants to replace Alexander Hamilton or Andrew Jackson is irrelevant to whether she should be president. But her hesitance to stake out a position on anything that might be remotely controversial feeds voters' perception that she's not honest and trustworthy. And why shouldn't it?Whether questions were on policy or politics, substance or scandal, Clinton refused time and again to give a straight answer.Would she raise taxes, like Bernie Sanders has said he would?"I'm going to put out my policies and I'm going to let other people speak to their policies," she said...." see full article

No wonder Hillary Clinton looked annoyed on CNN - Washington Post (blog)

"...You might not like Clinton's answer or think it stinks to high heaven. Judging by its examination of Clinton's explanation at the United Nations back in March, PolitiFact certainly would have a hard time with her response to Keilar. But even in its side-eye analysis, the fact-checkers pointed out that it was only after Clinton left the State Department, that the National Archives issued a recommendation that government employees should avoid conducting official business on personal emails . It went on to say, Additionally, in 2014, President Barack Obama signed changes to the Federal Records Act that explicitly said federal officials can only use personal email addresses if they also copy or send the emails to their official account. And Gary Bass, founder and former director of OMB Watch, told PolitiFact that since those two changes took effect after Clinton left the state department, she was in compliance with the laws and regulations at the time. Knowing all this puts Clinton's reaction into much-needed context. Her responses to queries about her e-mails are as valid as the questions asked about them. No wonder she looked annoyed...." see full article

A slip of the tongue or does Hillary Clinton not understand how a sanctuary ... - Twitchy
"...One of the more troubling exchanges in Hillary Clinton's interview with CNN's Brianna Keilar yesterday was when Clinton dodged a question on her past support of sanctuary cities in light of the horrific murder of Kate Steinle, allegedly at the hands of a 7-time felon, 5-time deported illegal immigrant.But it's not just that Clinton dodged on her answer. Her answer was confusing and has us wondering if she understands how a sanctuary city like San Francisco actually works...." see full article

CNN Reporter Who Interviewed Hillary Clinton Sharply Criticizes Her ... -
"...Keilar listed several questions she asked Clinton in which she was not satisfied with the answer she received in return. I heard her not engaging on the issue of Bernie Sanders. He's a self-described Democratic Socialist and I asked her why is garnering this support and enthusiasm you don't seem to among Democrats. She wouldn't engage on that, Keilar said.The CNN host added that she felt Clinton wouldn't engage on other issues, including the idea of a Bush v. Clinton general election and her problem with polls showing many voters don't find her trustworthy.Keilar's sit down with Clinton was the first nationally televised interview since the Democratic presidential contender announced her 2016 bid for the White House...." see full article

Hillary Plays The Victim in CNN Interview

"...The candidate was, by turns, self-justifying and pugnacious, and occasionally just plain inauthentic, as she complained about her and her husband's victimization by right-wingers and scandalous book authors the correct people to blame, in her view, for the fact that six out of 10 voters don't consider her honest and trustworthy, according to a recent CNN poll. I can only say, this has been a theme that has been used against me and my husband for many, many years, Clinton said perhaps unwittingly evoking her long-ago claim that the Monica Lewinsky scandal was the result of a vast right-wing conspiracy. At the end of the day, I think voters sort it all out I trust the American voters. ..." see full article

Hillary Clinton rips GOP on immigration: She says their problem is much bigger than Trump

"...And Clinton, who supported so-called sanctuary cities during her last presidential run, was forceful in her criticism of San Francisco for ignoring immigration detention requests from the federal government. An undocumented immigrant who had been deported multiple times was arrested in the recent killing of a young woman, andDonald Trump has used the murder to bolster his argument that Mexican immigrants are criminals. The city made a mistake not to deport someone that the federal government thought should be deported I have absolutely no support for a city that ignores the strong evidence that should be acted on, Clinton said, but she made clear that such scrutiny would not be required for minor or misdemeanor charges.Clinton also weighed in on the debate over adding a woman to the 10 dollar bill, saying it may be more appropriate to look at the 20 than the 10. ..." see full article

Hillary Clinton Disappointed in Trumps Mexico Comments, Dismisses Email Controversy
"...Clinton dismissed suggestions that the American people have a problem trusting her. She blamed the barrage of attacks that are largely fomented by and coming from the right, adding, People should and do trust me. Keilar also inquired about Clinton's email controversy. The former Secretary of State insisted she did nothing wrong when using a private email account during her tenure in the Obama administration. Previous Secretaries of State did the same thing. People knew I was using only one device, Clinton said, adding that she was never subpoenaed. Everything was permitted, adding, this is being blown up with no basis in law or fact. ..." see full article

Why Won't Hillary Clinton Talk to Reporters? - The Atlantic

"...Hillary Clinton acts and talks as if she has nobody in her party left to persuade. Campaign message: It's already over. As Bill Clinton told an NBC reporter in May 2015: Any kind of disclosure is a target. Jeb Bush seems determined to communicate: I'm accessible, I'm approachable, I feel entitled to nothing. In the summer of 2014, when she released her memoir of her time as secretary of state, Hard Choices, Hillary Clinton gave a clutch of interviews. Like the book itself, those revealed only her skill at speaking without saying anything...." see full article
