Self-proclaimed 'Clinton fixer' is unmasked on Hannity . . .

Jaw Drop

"The man who detailed his years working as a fixer for Bill and Hillary Clinton in the National Enquirer last week revealed himself on Monday night's episode of Hannity.

"Jeff Rovin, a writer and former editor of Weekly World News, said that he was the man who detailed 12 'fixes' he did for the Clintons, most of which involved Bill's alleged relationships with women.

"During the interview with Sean Hannity however, Rovin downplayed most parts of the story, saying that the Enquirer had been in possession of the records for years.

"Rovin said that he had very little contact with the Clintons and only met Hillary twice, while never accepting any payments for his work. 

"He also said that he has since apologized to one of the woman he worked to take down - Monica Lewinsky. "

Here he is: The Clinton fixer who gave an interview in the National Enquirer last week was revealed as Jeffrey Rovin (above) on Monday night's episode of Hannity

. . . "In his Enquirer story, Rovin (Left) claimed Hillary had him scrub Foster's office and remove Whitewater documents, just two hours after the White House employee's lifeless body was found in a park outside Washington DC.

"'I was informed that these stories would involve rumors of Bill Clinton‘s many sexual dalliances and an alleged ongoing affair of Hillary Clinton with a male member of her law firm, Vince Foster, as well as a female mover-and-shaker in Hollywood,' the fixer said of their first meeting about the possible new job.

"'For a retainer of $4,000 a month - paid by a third party, not the campaign - I was told to keep these stories hush-hush in one of two ways: by trading access to the Clintons for “positive” interviews, or by paying the reporters.' " . . .

The Enquirer was right on when they broke the John Edwards affair before election time, so that was good work. But then they also broke stories like this:

Hillary and the media against Trump

The Media Can’t Be Bothered To Fact-Check Trump’s Accusers
. . . "Less than 48 hours after interviewing Leeds, and despite Trump’s protests that the charge was false, the Times ran the allegation on the front page. The reporters couldn’t confirm the date or even the year the incident supposedly occurred, or on what flight. They didn’t find even one witness. No facts." . . .
. . . ""Allred appears heavily involved. Democrats have called on her to smear Republican candidates in the past, including presidential hopeful Herman Cain and California gubernatorial candidate Meg Whitman." . . .

THE WIKILEAKS LIST: At Least 65 MSM Reporters Were Meeting with and/or Coordinating Offline with Top Hillary Advisors


Big Journalism  The “broader universe of New York reporters” includes several top news anchors for network and cable channels, many of whom are listed as a “yes” for the appearance:
From ABC: Cecilia Vega, David Muir, Diane Sawyer (who could only stay for 30 minutes), and George Stephanopoulos.From CBS News: Norah O’Donnell.From CNN: Brianna Keilar, Gloria Borger, John Berman, and Kate Bolduan.From MSNBC: Alex Wagner and Rachel Maddow (“TRYING”).From NBC: Savannah Guthrie.
“Yes” respondent George Stephanopoulos worked for Bill Clinton’s presidential campaign and was a Senior Adviser to the President during Clinton’s first White House term. Stephanopoulos does not disclose this fact when reporting on the 2016 Clinton campaign for ABC News." . . .
. . . "CNBC’s John Harwood, who was also a moderator for a 2015 presidential debate, emailed Podesta frequentlypractically begging for approval and access." . . .

The coming media settlement with Hillary  . . . "If Hillary Clinton wins the Nov. 8 election — and it’s no sure thing, according to some of the respectable polls — she should not necessarily expect to extend the passionate honeymoon with her eager bridegrooms in the mainstream media. She can expect to minister to a lot of hangovers, which is sloppy duty that any number of wives of drunks could tell her is no fun.

"All those men and women who eagerly plunged into the tank with her months ago will have no further reason to pay homage to her, and can redeem themselves, even unto themselves, by ridding themselves of the scent and stain of selling out the credibility of the journals they work for. Some of them have spectacular sins to atone." . . .

Geez, Louise! High school event holds terrors that people can't imagine!

ACLU: High School Event Honoring Police Officers Sends “Frightening Message”…


"Via Fox News:
"A New Jersey high school has come under fire after holding a ceremony honoring law enforcement, military and first responders before a football game Friday night."According to NJ.com, an organizer with the New Jersey chapter of the American Civil Liberties Union claimed the ceremony sent a “frightening message.”"Middletown police Deputy Chief Stephen Dollinger organized the event before a highly-anticipated game between Middletown High School South and Toms River High School North. It featured State Police Pipes and Drums of the Blue and Gold, state and local mounted units, personnel from all of the branches of the military and officers from several local offices."The ceremony also honored a Linden police officer who was wounded in a shootout with Ahmad Khan Rahimi, who is accused of planting IEDs in Seaside Park, Elizabeth and New York City." . . .
What have our people become? I suppose we have become this:
Berkeley SJWs Demand “Safe Spaces” For Transgenders And “Spaces Of Color” For Non-Whites…
. . . "A video of Friday’s protest shows a large group of protesters preventing white students from passing over a bridge while allowing access to students of color.

"In addition to blocking access to Berkeley’s Sather Gate, a key bridge on the route to many classes, the wall of protesters also prevented white students from studying in the Student Union and stopped traffic at the main intersection in the front of campus."
Fruit for the next "American Silliness" post. Thanks Obamas.

Cleaning Up Obama’s Foreign Policy Mess

"Our national purpose will be found in defeating the enemies of liberty."u national purpose will be found in defeating the enemies of liberty.

Abe Greenwald in Commentary Magazine  "What is America’s purpose in the world? At the end of 2016, with Barack Obama’s two-term presidency coming to a close, the question seems almost outmoded. Not only does the United States currently have no national purpose; the very idea of a national purpose is now unfashionable. This is the logical result of eight years of American political leadership devoted to minimizing American global leadership.
"In our democratic republic, we choose presidents who reflect the national mood, and they in turn lead a nation that becomes a reflection of them. In 2008, Americans were tired of the war in Iraq and elected Barack Obama on his promise to end that war—but he had a far larger retreat in mind. Pursuing a staunchly progressive worldview, Obama would oversee the withdrawal of American power around the globe. Yet as his vision of a better world lost out to the reality of a much more treacherous one, he refused to change course. Responding to the new threats would have distilled for the country a new sense of national purpose—something Obama expressly feared. In exacerbating and then downplaying a rising global wave of theocratic and secular tyranny, the president has left our sense of national purpose in a shambles. And having done so, he will depart the White House with the free world at great risk." . . .

Jan 2016; Foreign Policy magazine: Obama’s Failed Command
"But no assessment of Obama’s performance as commander-in-chief is more damning than the one offered by his own Secretary of Defense, Robert Gates, in his 2014 memoir, Duty."
Obama’s Failed Command

"However hard President Barack Obama tries on Tuesday night to convince the American people that his seven years of wartime leadership have left the country safer and stronger, I’d venture to guess that history is not going to look particularly kindly on his tenure as America’s commander-in-chief." . .  .

Remember Obama's schedule after Americans were killed in Benghazi?

Jay Z will headline a concert for Hillary; Here are some of the vile things he’s rapped about women

Cartoons: Lisa Benson for October 25, 2016

Hot Air  "The Hillary Clinton campaign announced yesterday that recording mogul Jay Z will headline a concert on behalf of their African-American get out the vote effort, according to CNN." . . .
"Obviously, the Katy Perry t-shirt display is to draw attention to GOP nominee Donald Trump calling Clinton a “nasty woman” during last week’s debate. Because calling a woman “nasty” is an outrageous outrage and that kind of misogyny and hate speech against women can’t be tolerated and must be condemned.
"Which brings us to the irony of Jay Z performing on behalf of the Democratic Party’s nominee.  Let’s have a sample of the NSFW lyrics that Mr. Z has made a fortune promulgating.
"Here’s a delightful little ditty called “Bitches and Sisters”:
And this one you can play if you dare and are not easily offended:

Breitbart, Liberal Activist Cooperated On GOP Primary Disruptions: Report

Say it ain't so, Breitbart! I had expected so much better from you and do not like the thought of you as a conservative CNN or any outlet with the letters "NBC" in the name.  TD

. . . "Aaron Black teamed with the pro-Donald Trump outlet by alerting them to stunts, sharing raw video footage and orchestrating coverage, Politico reported on Monday.
“ 'He worked directly with Breitbart’s political team on the ground in the primary states to sabotage [Sens.] Marco Rubio [R-Fla.] and Ted Cruz [R-Texas], and elect Trump as nominee of the [Republican] party,” a source with direct knowledge of the arrangement told Politico.
“ '[Black] was coordinating with [Breitbart’s] top staff to rabble rouse against Rubio at rallies,” citing various disruptions during the former White House hopeful’s events." . . .

"Why would Black, a committed Democrat, work with a supposedly conservative publication to affect Republican primary results?

As hacked WikiLeaks emails from the Clinton campaign recently revealed, the Clinton campaign feared going up against Rubio in the general election. . .
PJ Media covers this story here: Breitbart Worked with Democrat Operative to Sabotage GOP Primary  "Andrew Breitbart, often described as a "happy warrior" for the conservative cause, now spins in his grave. The website he founded, which still bears his name, has been corrupted into a tool of anti-governing insurgency. Its mission: destroy the Republican Party by any means necessary.

"This much has appeared obvious to many for months, but has now been greatly substantiated. Breitbart.com was willing to go to any length to undermine the party, even colluding with a clandestine Democrat operative whose goals aligned with their own. "From Politico:" . . .

Breitbart's response  "Politico’s Hadas Gold and the Fox News Channel’s Megyn Kelly severely misrepresented a series of events during the Republican primaries in an attempt to attack the Breitbart News Network, Breitbart News can reveal." . . .
The idea that Black “coordinated” Breitbart News coverage is a blatant misrepresentation of what happened. Black did on occasion—as he and any other effective organizer in politics does with everyone in media—tell Breitbart News about planned events he had coming up and different newsworthy actions he planned to take. Sometimes, when editors and reporters here deemed them newsworthy, Breitbart News would cover them. Other times not. For the reporters and editors at Politico who don’t understand, that is what is called journalism.

So you want to be a fashion model?

UK Daily Mail  "A brave model faced strong winds and terrifying conditions to pose for a breathtaking photo shoot on top of a 3,000 foot cliff.
"Kristina Marie Folcik-Welts, 38, also had to negotiate a billowing purple dress for the striking photographs featuring a backdrop of autumnal leaves and water.
"The model had to camp overnight on the spire at The Eaglet in Franconia Notch, New Hampshire, to be ready for the two-day shoot." . . . More here

War History Online  "In 1944 the Allies began to plan an invasion of France, then occupied by Nazi Germany. Germany was losing on the Italian and the Russian Front, and it was decided that the time was right for an invasion from the west. At the Trident Conference in Washington, it was decided that the U.S. General Dwight Eisenhower would be Supreme Allied Commander, and the British General Bernard Montgomery would command all the land forces.
"They would land at Normandy in northern France and the codename for the invasion would be Operation Overlord. United States forces would land at two beaches, named Utah and Omaha. The British would land at Sword and Gold Beaches. The Canadians would land at Juno Beach.
"There were so many troops involved in Operation Overlord that two artificial ports, called Mulberry Ports, had to be built. Also, special tanks that could deal with beaches and obstacles had to be developed and built. They were nicknamed Hobart’s Funnies, named after their commander, Major General Percy Hobart." . . .

What Happened to the FBI’s Integrity?

"But the Clintons ruin everything they touch, and James Comey’s refusal to recommend indictment of Hillary Clinton for her mishandling of classified information has damaged the FBI’s reputation, perhaps irreparably. Michael Ramirez comments memorably; click to enlarge:"


When This Dog Realizes Where He’s Going, He Has The Best Reaction Ever.

MetaSpoon . . . "Take a minute to imagine the joy and wonder of a child as they visit Disney World for the first time. Now, hold on to that feeling. That pure, unadulterated glee doesn’t compare to how the pup in this video feels about a trip to the dog park.

"This adorable dog sits in the car, wondering what adventure he and his owner are on today. “Are we going to the vet? That doesn’t sound like fun. I hope we’re going somewhere fun.” Along the way, he starts to notice or perhaps smell familiar surroundings. He is barely able to contain the excitement that threatens to boil over. It isn’t long before he is no longer able to keep quiet and a little whine escapes. Which turns into louder crying and finally he jumps into his owner’s lap. “WE’RE GOING TO THE DOG PARK THANK YOU SO MUCH!” What’s the moral of this story? Take time to enjoy the joy in life, even if it’s just spending a couple of minutes smiling while you watch this dog."

Trump Is Dangerous

A FRIGHTENING PREVIEW OF HILLARY’S AMERICA  . . . "The core issue came into focus with the very first question asked by Chris Wallace. Wallace asked Hillary and Trump if their vision for the Supreme Court was based on the Constitution or not. Hillary launched into a spiel about a Supreme Court that would stand for class warfare and gay rights. The only time she mentioned the Constitution was when she insisted that the Senate was constitutionally obligated to confirm Obama’s nominee. That is her vision of the Constitution; a document that grants her power to reshape the country without regard to the Founders or any previously existing rights or freedoms." . . .

Here’s A (Dirty) Laundry List Of The Clinton Foundation’s Most Questionable Foreign Donations  . . . "Wallace’s question came after numerous allegations from Republican nominee Donald Trump that the Clinton Foundation took donations from foreign governments, which influenced Clinton’s decision making while serving as secretary of state.
"These countries include states accused of human rights violations, economic interests in decisions by Clinton’s Department of State, and countries Clinton has pledged to confront if elected president." . . . Read about these countries and their influence over the Clintons here.

""While Clinton's half-hour speech was warmly received, a meeting beforehand may have proven just as vital to her attempt to win the vote in Ohio's largest concentration of African-Americans." . . .
Clinton and Trump couldn't be further apart on abortion  . . . "From the very first moments of the final presidential debate, the choice on life could not have been clearer. Hillary Clinton budged not an inch — not a single baby — from her extreme stance on abortion, andDonald Trump stood firm on his pro-life commitments. The contrast was dramatic." . . .
