‘It’s a Hard Knock Life’ for ‘Poor Hillary Clinton’ According to RNC

Screen Shot 2014-07-21 at 13.14.17‘It’s a hard knock life’ for ‘poor’ Hillary Clinton according to a website unveiled today by the Republican National Committee. Paid for by the RNC, PoorHillaryClinton.com is a nod to the likely 2016 presidential hopeful’s comments that she and husband Bill Clinton were ‘dead broke’ after leaving the White House in 2000.

The Tumblr of sorts includes links to news hits which reference the Clinton’s wealth, raking in $275,000 for speaking fees and a Wall Street Journal piece likely placing the former First Family in the ‘top 1% of the top 1%.’

Daily Caller’s Betsy Rothstein Gets Lit for Interview with Marijuana Consultant

admin-ajax.phpOver the weekend, former FishbowlDC editor turned editor of The Daily Caller’s ‘The Mirror’ Betsy Rothstein posted an interview she conducted – completely stoned – with marijuana industry strategist Aaron Houston.

Three puffs in, from an undisclosed patio within the confines of North America, Rothstein recalls in her piece, “It was all downhill from there. Or uphill. Or sideways. Or upside-down. I can’t quite piece it together, but I’ll try.” Sounds like “Inception.”

The interview accompanied Rothstein’s regular feature of “The Mirror Questionnaire,” a Q&A typically conducted over email on the interviewee’s career and thoughts on Washington along with some satire, and this time around, includes Rothestein’s internal thought process in italics.

I feel like I’m swimming.” “WE BOTH START LAUGHING UNCONTROLLABLY.” “Seeing four of him. WTF? HEEEELLLPPP. His words sound like they’re in a bubble. Trying to understand what the fuck he’s saying.Read more

John McCain on ‘the Media’ with ‘MediaBuzz’ Host Howard Kurtz

McCainHost Howard Kurtz sat down with John McCain in a pre-recorded interview on his relationship with the press during yesterday’s “MediaBuzz” on Fox News Channel.

On Jon Stewart‘s position as a social critic with a sizeable following among young people, McCain said, ”Listen, he’s a very entertaining and funny guy. When he says things which he’s entitled to – after all he is a late night comic – that are absolutely wrong, he gets away with it and it is what it is. I frankly have no beef with late night comedians who make fun of politicians. That’s the nature of the business. I do resent when respected commentators who are columnists particularly say things that absolutely are contradicted by the facts, like, ‘Oh well, we wanted to leave a force behind in Iraq but the Iraqi’s wouldn’t take it.’ That’s just wrong.” Read more

Graff told the Washington City Paper at the time of his departure that he didn’t yet have concrete plans on what’s next, but that he is, “looking forward to a new challenge, wherever that may lie,” and that he will probably spend a good part of his time finishing up his third book, a history of the Cold War, for Simon and Schuster.

Quotes by John Kerry on 7.20.14 Sunday Shows

Screen Shot 2014-07-21 at 09.44.05Secretary of State John Kerry on CBS’s “Face the Nation” : “What we have is a lot of evidence that points in the direction that raises very, very serious questions, including the fact that a few weeks ago, we have 150-vehicle convoy coming from Russia, going into the east of Ukraine with tanks, artillery, multiple rocket launchers, armored personnel carriers, turned over to the separatists.”

Secretary of State John Kerry on ABC’s “This Week” : “Russia — there are — I mean some of the separatist leaders, George, are Russian.  Russia has armed the separatists.  Russia has supported the separatists.  Russia has trained the separatists.  Russia continues to refuse to call publicly for the separatists to engage in behavior that would lend itself to a resolution of this issue.”

Secretary of State John Kerry on NBC’s “Meet the Press” : “There’s a story today confirming that. But we have not, within the administration, made a determination. But it’s pretty clear, when, you know, there’s a build-up of extraordinary circumstantial evidence. You know, I’m a former prosecutor. I’ve tried cases on circumstantial evidence. It’s powerful here. But even more importantly, we picked up the imagery of this launch. We know the trajectory. We know where it came from. We know the timing. And it was exactly at the time that this aircraft disappeared from the radar. We also know, from voice identification, that the separatists were bragging about shooting it down afterwards.”

Secretary of State John Kerry on CNN’s “State of the Union” : “And on Thursday of the event, we know that, within hours of this event, this particular system passed through two towns right in the vicinity of the shoot-down. We know, because we observed it by imagery, that, at the moment of the shoot-down, we detected a launch from that area, and our trajectory shows that it went to the aircraft.”

Secretary of State John Kerry on “Fox News Sunday” : “Drunken separatists have been piling bodies into trucks and removing them from the site.  We only had 75 minutes of access to the site on Friday.  Three hours of access yesterday.  Despite Mr. Putin and Russia saying they were going to make every effort to make sure there’d be a full and fair investigation, thorough, and the site would be protected.  Because of Russia’s linkage to these separatists, they have a greater ability to exert influence, and we need Russia to become part of the solution, not part of the problem.”
