Uh, no. Did you not read the article posted in here the other day? She was always arguing for more involvement and ground troops when she worked for this administration. Of course she's going to be more hawkish than Obama, and for me, that's the problem that we can't really fix. The left may be able to persuade her to move in their direction enough that her administration functions as the third term of Obama, but we're likely to make no headway in changing her mind regarding foreign affairs and that's a shame.

So after November we may have two Republican candidates on reality TV this fall.

How lovely
Yeah, that news did not make me happy .

I'm hoping the show can do a double elimination the first week and let both him and Ryan Lochte go at once ..

That's exactly what I'm talking about. When you're getting a full wage, I don't think I need to tip you for taking my money. Sorry.

Wonder how the meeting between Trump and the President of Mexico goes down.

Assume the Wall Deal will be signed and sealed.

Reality?

http://thehill.com/blogs/ballot-box/...turn-donations

It's like we're not even gonna bother to do rudimentary google searches before rebutting. Not only can we find the Ted Cruz(s) of congress commenting, we can find Ted Cruz himself commenting. Over a year ago.

Additionally, by what mathematical logic can you say a more than 100% increase in the amount of arms deals is not outside of the norm for arms deals? That makes no sense whatsoever

Not going to discuss what other republican investigations have shown, because that's an obvious non sequitur.

Oh, and yea I'd still vote for Hillary over Saint Bernie any day of the week as well, before THAT while thing inevitably starts again.

Agree with every word of this. Though I'd only not vote Bernie because I probably couldn't afford to

I'm sorry, where did he discuss the arms deal? That article just spoke of normal campaigning against a candidate.

I'm saying if this arms deal was a real issue then he would be speaking about this IN CONGRESS. I haven't heard one person in Congress speak to the arms deal in question, just of the foundation. And most of that is just typical politicking.

Did you read the original comment?

The original comment is pointing to a connection between foreign governments donating to the Clinton foundation and then receiving a vast increase in weapons deals approved by the state department.

Congress rejected the Bahrain deal. The administration went around congress.

The question here is corruption.

As for Cruz coming out against the arms deal...when has Ted Cruz become anyone's moral guide to arms deals?

Moral guide? That's not the point at all.

The issue is the arms deal. Would it have been any different if it weren't for the donation. Correct?!

I'm saying if you're a member of Congress and a questionable arms deal is happening, that's a political football that you would jump on and run into the ground. That would be HUGE. That would be Iran Contra political fodder. But no one in Congress is jumping on it. So if the arms deal alone isn't an issue, then making this connection with the foundation is indeed just another political goose chase.

Hillary Clinton continued sending classified information even after leaving the State Department, The Post has exclusively learned.

On May 28, 2013, months after stepping down as secretary of state, Clinton sent an email to a group of diplomats and top aides about the “123 Deal” with the United Arab Emirates.

But the email, which was obtained by the Republican National Committee through a Freedom of Information Act request, was heavily redacted upon its release by the State Department because it contains classified information.

The markings on the email state it will be declassified on May 28, 2033, and that information in the note is being redacted because it contains “information regarding foreign governors” and because it contains “Foreign relations or foreign activities of the United States, including confidential sources.”

The email from Clinton was sent from the email account — hrod17@clintonemail.com — associated with her private email server.

The email’s recipients were Deputy Secretary of State William Burns, diplomat Jeffrey Feltman, policy aide Jake Sullivan, diplomat Kurt Campbell, State Department chief of staff Cheryl Mills, and Clinton aide Huma Abedin.
We're just as shocked as you, Caleb

Hillary Clinton Disliked By A Record Number Of Americans, Survey Finds

We really could have crushed the opposition with a real candidate, but America's older primary voters are risk averse to a fault and enjoy the comfort food of name recognition.

In the post fact world if you repeat something enough, it becomes true.

Sixteen minutes is pretty good, BVS, but is well below the high standards you've set for the Clinton Response Team. I expected five.

"could have"?

the election's been over for a month. barring her plane crashing or something, the only question now is if she can get past 350 EV's.
