More Nixon in a Pantsuit : Clintons lobbied GE to get rid of MSNBC’s David Shuster

Zogby Poll: Rand Paul leads potential 2016 GOP presidential candidates by 7 points

We are a long, long way out but this kind of lead even at this early stage puts panic into the hearts of the more establishment GOP candidates for president. To be clear, a large part of the GOP in Washington DC would rather have Hilary Clinton as president than Rand Paul. The last thing the bankers want is a president who will force an audit of the Federal Reserve or even seek to hobble the Federal Reserve.

(To be clear, there’s no way I’d ever call Hillary Clinton a liar) Hillary Doubles Down on Being Broke: ‘We Couldn’t Even Get a Mortgage on a House by Ourselves’

OK, I think there are any number of reasons why Ms. Clinton should not be considered for the presidency. But I guess I need to add delusion to the list. I think she’s conniving, ruthless, a crony capitalist, an opportunist, and generally a political hack. But I didn’t think she wandered around in an alternate reality. Does she seriously believe that even her supporters are buying this nonsense?

Wealthy Clintons Use Trusts to Limit Estate Tax They Back

Now raise your hand if you subscribe to the Kennedy school of limousine liberalism. I’m looking at you John Kerry…

Look, at a net worth of $100 million the Clintons are not wealthy, they are legitimately rich. They are not the 1%, they are the 1% of the 1%. And surprise surprise, despite all the “have and have not” nonsense coming from Madam Clinton as of late, the Clintons intend on remaining in the 1% of the 1%.

Mother Jones Gets Real: Hillary Clinton’s Goldman Sachs Problem

Golden Hillary.

Hillary Clinton has a problem which is much bigger than just Goldman Sachs. 29 of the Dow 30 have already given generously in one way or another to Ms. Clinton’s presumed 2016 presidential campaign. Goldman Sachs just might be the most repulsive of the big corporate donors.

Is Hillary the Corporate Candidate enough of a populist for the Dems?

The short answer is yes. Don’t worry Democrats (and Republicans) Hillary will be plenty liberal or “progressive” or whatever the word for statist will be in 2016. But part of that package, the pro-state package, is partnering with powerful corporate interests. That’s just the way it is. The state in many ways is owned by these interests but the state also owns these corporate interests too. It is the crony capitalist tango and it is a key part of having large government.

‘Clinton Library’s Doc Dump Reveals CRA Fueled Subprime Bubble’

Attached is an interesting article and there is no doubt that the Community Reinvestment Act, which though well intended was in the end a disaster for housing and the American economy. It was a big part of the housing meltdown. But the most important factor in the housing crash was the easy money made available by the Federal Reserve for too long.

Though forcing banks to lend to people who did not fit traditional underwriting guidelines was unwise,

The last thing we need is another Clinton or Bush presidency

If Hillary or Jeb get the presidency in 2016, this will be very bad for the Republic. And we’ve had a lot of stuff lately which has been bad for the Republic. What’s even more worrisome is that I understand that the Bushs and the Clintons are family friends. Seriously, friends. Tell me how having either family running the show is good for America.
