Pat Caddell on Hillary: “She’s Dying Right Before Our Eyes Politically’

Political Insiders Pat Caddell, Doug Schoen, John LeBoutillier were back on Fox News with Harris Faulkner, Sunday to talk about 2016 Democrat race where things are looking increasingly glum for Hillary Clinton.

A new poll in Iowa has the commie septuagenarian Bernie Sanders beating Ma-Clinton in a head to head. (*giggle*)

In a Clinton/Trump head to head, it’s 46% for Clinton and 43% for Trump.

Democrat pollster Pat Caddell noted that that since the WaPo poll “is a heavily biased Democratic poll usually — if they’re showing three points, then Trump’s ahead, I’ll guarantee that.”

He maintained that Clinton is “desperately wounded” and in fact “dying right before our eyes.”

“Hillary gets worse and worse by the week,” Caddell said. “These resets don’t work – and I’ll tell ya — that memo from the NYTs which said — they had done focus groups and she was going to apologize, she’s going to be more human – and then she goes on Ellen who slobbers all over her, and whatever and dances and what-not. You know what? The phoniness is phony!”

Caddell pointed out that the email scandal isn’t even Hillary’s only problem. There’s also Benghazi – and “most of all the foundation.” He added, “she’s dying right in front of our eyes, politically.”

Caddell said he watched the talk shows, Sunday morning, “which is enough to really give me bad heart-burn, literally,” he said. “These people keep saying, ‘oh, Hillary still can’t lose.’ None of them have learned, anything. They don’t understand the system, right now. They don’t understand that we’re having a literal uprising against the political class. This is a revolution,” Caddell added. “This is not ‘oh, let’s have a little protest…’ It is a change in the political order.”

*Don’t want to repeat myself — but — I was saying she was dead politically back in March. The fact that Hillary would not survive this email scandal should not have been a surprise to anyone who pays close attention to politics, (as I explained here) but there weren’t too many people saying it in March.

I agree with Ann Coulter, however, that we should be rooting for Hillary to pull through the primary, because she is easily their weakest, most compromised candidate.

Unfortunately, she is being taken out.

Caddell put it very well – “she’s dying right in front of our eyes.”

Sources: Formal Criminal Investigation of Clinton Coming Soon


According to an NPR (*not a typo) report, federal authorities may be getting ready to step up their “inquiry” into Hillary Clinton’s “unique email arrangement” (as Trey Gowdy habitually puts it.)

“I think that the FBI will be moving with all deliberate speed to determine whether there were serious breaches of national security here,” said Ron Hosko, who used to lead the FBI’s criminal investigative division.

He said agents will direct their questions not just at Clinton, but also her close associates at the State Department and beyond.

“I would want to know how did this occur to begin with, who knew, who approved,” Hosko said.

Authorities are asking whether Clinton or her aides mishandled secrets about the Benghazi attacks and other subjects by corresponding about them in emails.


Why is Clinton emphasizing the idea that none of those messages were marked? Because what she knew — her intent — matters a lot under the law. If the Justice Department and FBI inquiry turns into a formal criminal investigation.

Two lawyers familiar with the inquiry told NPR that a formal criminal investigation is under consideration and could happen soon — although they caution that Clinton herself may not be the target.

I think the better phrasing of this caveat would be; “Clinton herself may not be the ONLY target.”

Michael Mukasey, who served as attorney general in the George W. Bush administration, recently talked to Newsmax TV about the government’s burden of proof.

“They’d have to show that she was responsible for having the information on that server and essentially knew what was on there,” Mukasey said.

Whether or not the emails were labeled as secret, some other Republicans say Clinton should have known better.

Former NSA Director Michael Hayden told the MSNBC program Morning Joe: “Put legality aside for just a second, it’s stupid and dangerous.”

*Even the uber-lib NPR is getting in on this anti-Clinton pig-pile, I notice. This is a really pitiful state of affairs for the Democrat “frontrunner.”


Monica Crowley has come to the conclusion I came to over five months ago. The Obama White House has given the gatekeepers the signal to close the gates in Hillary’s face. The only question is why.

 Why Obama is torpedoing Hillary Clinton?:

If Mr. Obama does not want an investigation to go forward, it does not go forward. Witness the scandals involving the Internal Revenue Service, Benghazi, Veterans Administration and Operation Fast and Furious gunrunning. In each case, Mr. Obama claimed he learned about the scandal “from the news.” (That’s interesting coming from a guy who claims he only rarely watches or reads said “news.”)

He then expressed his “outrage” and vowed to “get to the bottom” of each scandal. (Of course, it’s tough to “get to the bottom” of something when you are the bottom of it.)

In those cases, he protesteth too much. His faux outrage was a “tell” that he had no intention of investigating. In Mrs. Clinton’s case, he’s been quiet. Too quiet. That’s a “tell” that he wants this investigation pursued, likely to the point of charging her.

For me the biggest “tell” was the media. The MSM knows how to ignore a story if it’s inconvenient to their chosen narrative. Witness what is going on with the Planned Parenthood videos – and before that – the Gosnell story. Consider how they denied oxygen to the myriad of Obama scandals that have broken over the years, turning major game-changing bombshells into tiny, non threatening flames that die out on their own as soon a more convenient story comes along.

Obama would never have been elected had they have done due diligence to numerous stories about Obama’s past that would have torpedoed his campaign.

Most of these stories are coming from the NYTs and WaPo.  The New York Times, as you know,  is the House Organ of the Obama White House.

Crowley has a theory about the game plan sounds pretty plausible.

Once Mr. Biden joins the race, he will enjoy the full backing of Mr. Obama. With Mrs. Clinton gone, however, Mr. Obama and Mr. Biden will have to make it up to Democratic women and the radical left, which is currently flirting with socialist Sen. Bernie Sanders.

There is only one person who kills both birds with one stone: Sen. Elizabeth Warren.

The Democratic ticket will be Joe Biden-Elizabeth Warren. That’s what Mr. Obama wants. And what Mr. Obama wants, Mr. Obama gets.

This is “Game of Thrones.” And Mr. Obama is winning.

As ‘ve been saying all along – Obama wants Lizzie Warren. He’ll settle for the dim bulb, Biden, who can be controlled for one term – and then he’s hoping two terms of Warren.


 JammieWearingFool: “Hillary Clinton’s poll numbers are like a leaky faucet: drip…drip… drip”

Grandma will probably be the last one to know it’s all over for her.

Vice President Biden matches up as well or better than Hillary Clinton against top 2016 Republicans in three key swing states, according to a Quinnipiac poll released Thursday morning and certain to fuel speculation of the former six-term senator entering the White House race.

Former secretary of State Clinton is still the front-runner for Democratic primary voters in Florida, Ohio and Pennsylvania, and real estate mogul Donald Trump leads among the GOP, the survey says, but they have the worst favorability ratings and trustworthiness scores of the featured candidates.

So the “leaders” from the two major parties have the highest unfavorable ratings. Yet we’re to believe they have any hope?

State Dept. Whistleblower Scandal Coming Back To Haunt Hillary


….On conservative websites, anyway. The MSM never had much of an appetite for this one.

Via the Washington Free BeaconThe Washington Examiner continues its reporting on the Clinton State Department’s efforts to cover up alleged misconduct with new details about investigations thwarted by agency staff:

State Department officials blocked investigations into potentially embarrassing allegations of misconduct from agency investigators and even inspector general staff during Hillary Clinton’s tenure as secretary of state.

A former official in the State Department inspector general’s office who was involved with preparing the sanitized report said agency officials also interfered in probes originating in the Office of the Inspector General.

The suggestions of political interference into investigations conducted at the bureau of diplomatic security first appeared in an inspector general report published in February 2013, just as Clinton was leaving the State Department. A Washington Examiner review of earlier drafts of that reportsuggested potentially damaging passages were removed from the final document. But the State Department official suggests the intervention went further.

The official, who requested anonymity, said the Bureau of Diplomatic Security initially prevented inspectors from reviewing open case files when they began their probe in late 2012.

Read the full report for all the gory deets.

Longtime readers of this blog should not be strangers to this story. I covered these allegations, and the State Dept’s retaliation against whistleblowers extensively in 2013. I’ve been wondering why it hasn’t been brought up until now.

Like so many other Clinton scandals – this one cluster-F alone (in a healthy, sane country) would be enough to derail her pathetic candidacy.

If she makes it through the primary without getting indicted, US demographics are such that she’s a sure thing in 2016 said Hugh Hewitt on the Adam Carolla Show, 6/11/15

Video: Megyn Kelly Blasts “Fundamentally Confused and Wrong” Lib On Free Speech

Watching Fox News’ resident liberal Richard Fowler flail around in search of a valid point is always painful to watch. But watching him attempt to debate Megyn Kelly on the issue of free speech, is downright mortifying.

In an epic clash with Kelly, he found himself agreeing with Bill O’Reilly’s craven take on the issue – a take Kelly blasted as “fundamentally confused and wrong.”

“The relevant question is not ‘did those under attack say something offensive,'” Kelly declared. The relevant question is, “what do we want to do about a group that wants to kill us for exercising our constitutional rights.”

“Freedom of speech is an enumerated right that also comes with the freedom of religion, the freedom of press and the freedom of association,” Fowler intoned. “Muslims should be free to worship just like Christians are free to worship.”

“They are,” Megyn replied, non-plussed. “This group didn’t step on that.”

“Freedom of speech comes with limits and this is a clear limit,” Fowler argued in search of a point.

“No it isn’t!” Megyn countered. “You are fundamentally confused and wrong and the Supreme Court has been very clear on this.”

She cited the Westboro Baptist Church case in which the court upheld their right to picket funerals of fallen soldiers in an 8-1 decision.

Fowler countered, “this is not about case law – this is about common sense,” totally contradicting his earlier “point” that some speech should be limited – which the always razor sharp Megyn called him out on.

“It doesn’t make any sense,” Fowler simpered. ” Why would you paint a picture of someone else’s God and laugh at it and expect them not to respond?”

Setting aside the fact that Fowler just made it obvious he doesn’t have the first clue what Muslims believe about Mohammed (hint – he’s not their God!) He also exposed himself as the craven hypocrite he is for piously pretending that he believes religion should never be made fun of. Can you see Richard Fowler passionately defending Catholics when The Sisters of Perpetual Indulgenceperform their blasphemous shtick?

A troupe of anti-clerical gay provocateurs who cross-dress as bizarre nuns to insult the church and conventional morality of all sorts, stage a “Hunky Jesus” competition in San Franscisco.

You know what? I know a lot of people who are offended by this.  Should we insist that they cease and desist or face {{{the consequences}}}?


And what do you suppose Fowler’s take on the “vulgar and tasteless” Book of Mormon on Broadway is?

Here’s what a reviewer at said of the musical:

Let’s start by being clear that the show is offensive in the traditional sense of the word: Four-letter words; sex jokes; sacrilege. But it’s only offensive because it wants to offend you. Ultimately, it drops a dose of vulgar, ugly and comically juxtaposed reality on the absurdity of musical theater and the incongruities of one particular religion: Mormonism.

The two-and-a-half hour show is saddled with the schoolyard humor we’ve come to expect from the men who thought up Eric Cartman. It’s riddled with profanity and even manages to make “baptism” a dirty word. It’s not for pearl-clutchers or do-gooders.

Well, we’ll just have to add Richard Fowler to the ranks of pearl-clutchers and do-gooders, I guess. Because it doesn’t make sense!!!11!! Why would someone make fun of someone else’s God and laugh at it? Whoever heard of such a thing?!

But of course – Fowler is silent about these insults because the offended parties don’t threaten to murder people who insult them. This is a craven, despicable and unsupportable position to have – which is certainly to be expected among those on the left because they are consistently craven, despicable and wrong about everything.  Bill O’Reilly should be ashamed and embarrassed to be on their  side on such a basic and fundamental issue.

Kelly concluded by saying, “I’m concerned about the America you would have us live in,” but Fowler whimpered in response,”I would live in an America where everybody accepts everybody and we don’t make fun of their respective gods…”

When Megyn suggested he “explain that to the jihadis,” the clearly delusional Fowler blurted out, “how we beat terrorism is with love, not hate.”

Good lord.

Baltimore City Councilman Explains Lack of Police Response, Last Night: “We Asked Them To Back Off”

On day two of the Baltimore riots, the inept city government was still giving the rioter, looters and pillagers “the space to destroy.”

Via Colin Flaherty, who says this is his favorite moment from the riots, last night:

And here via AoSHQ, is the unlucky owner of the liqueur store that was in the unfortunate “destroy” space.

Reporters asked the governor of Maryland why he was so slow to send in the National Guard.

Maryland’s Governor Hogan said it was Mayor “Space to Destroy”  Stephanie Rawlings-Blake’s call – and she didn’t call. 

Some questioned why it took so long for the Guard to be activated, to which Hogan responded that Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake was slow to make the request. He said he executed the request 30 seconds after it was made. Rawlings-Blake had initially said she wanted to give to protestors the “space to destroy” their environment….

“When the mayor called me, which quite frankly we were glad that she finally did, instantly we signed the executive order. We already had our entire team prepared,” he said. “We were trying to get in touch with the mayor for quite some time, she finally made that call and we immediately took action.”

Last Fall,  the Democrat Governor of Missouri was accused of holding back the National Guard (at Holder and Obama’s request) when the city of Ferguson was in flames. Now we have Democrat politicians in Baltimore doing the same stupid thing – and you have to wonder – are they getting orders from above – or is this kind of toxic stupidity endemic throughout the party? Or both?

Yeah. As I noted at PJ Tatler. This is the kind of incompetence and insanity you can count of when progressives are put into positions of power.

Whether it’s a big-city mayor giving common street thugs posing as protesters “space” to destroy a city, or the leader of the free world giving radical Islamists “space” to destroy entire countries —  what you get is chaos, terror, bloodshed and tears.

Wis. Retired Cop: Hyper-Partisan DA Said It Was His Responsibility To Stop Scott Walker and Republicans (Video)

On Thursday night’s Kelly File, Megyn Kelly interviewed two individuals who are connected to the infamous John Doe Raids in Wisconsin, in which private citizens were persecuted by a vindictive, hyper-partisan DA for “nothing more than exercising their right to support conservative causes.”

Head of Wisconsin Club For Growth Eric O’Keefe, told Kelly that his friends were attacked for their “virtue” and “effectiveness.”

“Because the left was tired of losing election after election after election – they correctly identified some of the most important communicators of political messages in Wisconsin, and they raided their family homes with kids at home. They knew the kids were home – they knew the schedules – they came in the dark…”

Michael Lutz, a decorated former police officer who knew District Attorney John Chisholm,  stated that Chisholm admitted to him that the investigation was entirely political.

“In a personal conversation in his office, he had stated that he believed that it was his personal responsibility to stop Governor Walker and all Republicans from continuing to support ACT 10,” Lutz said.

O’Keefe was speaking out in defiance of the “secrecy order” which he noted was unconstitutional. He declared that he has sued Johm Chisholm because “he’s not fit to serve in public office.”

When Kelly pointed out that Chisholm has denied any wrongdoing, Lutz replied, “this is why I came forward in the first place because through the conversations and through what I witnessed in the district attorney’s office, John Chisholm had become so hyper-political and hyper partisan, he had weaponized his district attorney’s office to go after and prosecute and persecute all those who had a different ideology than him.”

He added, “it’s just so unAmerican and disgusting what’s going on, here.”

Kelly covered the story for the first time on Wednsday’s Kelly File, interviewing the author of the NRO piece, David French. She said she would be staying on the story, and invited DA John Chisholm to come on her show and defend himself.

Report: The Clintons Referred To Secret Service Agents As “Pigs”

Excerpts from a new book about the White House paint a not altogether complimentary picture of the Clintons’ tumultuous time there. Although some staffers remember the Clintons fondly, others remember screaming fights complete with foul language and flying lamps, as well as their secretive, suspicious and vindictive ways. Most shockingly, the florist remembers overhearing a telephone conversation where Chelsea Clinton referred to a Secret Service member as a “pig” because that’s what her parents call them.

In her article at the Politico, Kate Andersen Brower, who spent four years covering the Obama White House for Bloomberg News, provided these juicy tidbits from The Residence: Inside the Private World of the White House.

White House Florist Ronn Payne remembers one day in 1998, after President Clinton had publicly admitted to his affair with a former White House intern, when he was coming up the service elevator with a cart to pick up old floral arrangements and saw two butlers gathered outside the West Sitting Hall listening in as the Clintons argued viciously with each other. The butlers motioned him over and put their fingers to their lips, telling him to be quiet. All of a sudden he heard the first lady bellow “goddamn bastard!” at the president—and then he heard someone throw a heavy object across the room. The rumor among the staff was that she threw a lamp. The butlers, Payne said, were told to clean up the mess. In an interview with Barbara Walters, Mrs. Clinton made light of the story, which had made its way into the gossip columns. “I have a pretty good arm,” she said. “If I’d thrown a lamp at somebody, I think you would have known about it.

Another vignette told by Payne suggests that Chelsea Clinton, (who by and large treated the staff with respect) had “internalized  some of her parents’ animosity toward the Secret Service.”

In the very beginning of the Clinton administration, agents were stationed on the second-floor staircase landing, right by the president’s elevator. Another Secret Service post was at the top of the Grand Staircase across from the Treaty Room on the second floor. (These posts were later moved to the State Floor at the Clintons’ request.)

One day, according to Payne, he was walking through the second-floor private kitchen when an agent walked in behind him waiting to escort Chelsea to Sidwell Friends, the private school she attended in northwest Washington. Chelsea was on the phone.

“Oh, I’ve got to go,” she told her friend. “The pigs are here.”

The agent turned “crimson,” Payne recalls. “Ms. Clinton, I want to tell you something. My job is to stand between you, your family, and a bullet. Do you understand?”

She replied: “Well, that’s what my mother and father call you.”

This is a story every American should read before 2016. No doubt, for many of today’s Democrats, a candidate who is known to have an aversion toward law enforcement, is looked upon with favor. But I’d like to think that it’s nowhere near the majority them.
