    Former President Bill Clinton told James Cordon he sent federal agents to Area 51 to find out if aliens were hiding there.  Clinton, 75, joined Cordon, 43, on his show on Wednesday evening, revealing he and his former Chief of Staff John Podesta, sent a team to the classified military base. 'When I was president, and I had a Chief of Staff John Podesta - he loved science fiction - he made every attempt to find out everything about Roswell. And we also sent people to Area 51, we wanted to make sure there were no aliens.'  When Cordon excitedly asked the former president who exactly he sent to the coveted area, he grabbed the late-night host's shoulder and said: 'Oh, if I told you that.'  However, Clinton ended up revealing that, while the alien hunt was a disappointment, the base was used as a research and test ground for stealth aircraft.  'I got to find out how we're going to deal with this, because [Area 51] is where we do a lot our invisibility research in terms of technology, like...

    Fox News host Dan Bongino warned that "it is going to get worse before it gets better" in the United States as President Biden appears to be politically floundering ahead of his one-year anniversary in office. Bongino said Tuesday on "The Dan Bongino Show" on Fox Nation and Westwood One that when former President Bill Clinton faced cratering approval in the early part of his first term because of his far-left policies like "HillaryCare", the Arkansas Democrat made a calculation and tacked to the political center prior to his 1996 reelection. Instead, Biden is doubling down on far-left politics, including issuing a verbal "appeal" to private companies to stop what he believes to be "misinformation" – which Bongino said shows the president is "not hiding it anymore" in terms of his true politics. "Joe Biden, the PINO – president in name only – is making a quote 'special appeal to private companies'," he said. He added that Biden had no issue with Big Tech and the mainstream media stifling coverage of his son, Hunter Biden's foreign business dealings, specifically the...
    (CNN)President Joe Biden is struggling politically. Recent polls have shown that his approval ratings continue to fall. According to CNN's Poll of Polls, the President stands at 42%, while Quinnipiac's January poll placed him at 33%. Those are the kinds of numbers that would leave any White House unsettled. The fate of the Build Back Better legislation remains precarious, while the President's emboldened words about the Freedom to Vote Act and the John Lewis Voting Rights Advancement Act were tougher than ever. On Tuesday, he asked elected officials, "Do you want to be on the side of Dr. King or George Wallace?" in what appeared to be a question implicitly targeting Sens. Joe Manchin of West Virginia and Kyrsten Sinema of Arizona, who still refuse to accept the filibuster carve-out that would allow the voting rights legislation to overcome Republican opposition. Even worse, Omicron has driven up hospitalizations and left huge swaths of the population despondent about when the pandemic will come to an end. "It's déjà vu all over again," as the baseball legend Yogi Berra liked to say....
    Hillary Clinton was on television Sunday promoting her new political thriller State of Terror -- which she admitted is based on her 2016 rival, former President Donald Trump. In her third interview this month, the former first lady accused Trump of 'masterminding' the January 6 Capitol riot. Her recent media blitz has fueled rumors that Clinton is testing the waters for her own re-election bid after repeatedly calling a potential Trump 2024 ticket a threat to democracy.  This morning, CNN host Fareed Zakaria asked about claims her new novel is a 'thinly veiled attack on President Trump.' 'Having lived through that presidency, when it came time to write a political thriller with my friend and collaborator Louise Penny, of course I would draw from the reality that we all have experienced,' Clinton said, adding that 'it's a good thriller.' She said the former president, who she lost the election to in 2016 despite winning the popular vote, is a 'danger' to the nation. Clinton gave her third television interview in two weeks on Sunday, fueling rumors that she's testing the...
    With President Joe Biden's sinking approval numbers and Vice President Kamala Harris' deep unpopularity, the Democratic presidential field that was so crowded in 2020 now appears nearly bare.  It's the perfect opportunity for Hillary Clinton, 74, to stage a comeback, political commentator Joe Concha explained in an op-ed published Wednesday.  'Hillary Clinton always seemed to believe the mantle of "First Female President" was her birthright,' Concha wrote for The Hill. 'And given how pathetic the field is on the Democratic side with or without Joe Biden, she may just get a second chance at winning the office her husband so famously made infamous.' Clinton's 2016 stunning election defeat at the hands of Donald Trump caught political pundits and election watchers by surprise. As a former First Lady, US Senator from New York and Secretary of State, Clinton's credentials on paper made her one of the most experienced White House contenders in history. A myriad of reasons has since been offered for her loss, including a misunderstanding of Americans' discontent with the political establishment and former FBI Director James Comey's actions...
    FLAGS are flying at half-mast after former Senator Bob Dole passed away on Sunday from his battle with lung cancer. He left behind a lasting legacy, humor, and wit – even in the face of defeat and unachieved ambitions. 2Former Senator Bob Dole passed away on Sunday after losing his battle with lung cancer Who did Bob Dole run against for the presidency? Bob Dole ran for president three times, but he did not secure a bid from the GOP until 1996 when he became the oldest first-time presidential nominee at 73 years old. Prior to his bid for president, Gerald Ford brought him on as his Vice President running mate in 1976 but lost to Jimmy Carter. Dole announced his retirement from the Senate ahead of the 1995 presidential election, and said he was either “headed for The White House or home.” However, he ultimately lost to Clinton won by an overwhelming 49.2 percent to 40.7 percent, making him the only person in US history to be nominated for both Vice President and President, but not achieve either. Most...
    Longtime Hillary Clinton aide Huma Abedin opened up about her troubled relationship with convicted sex offender Anthony Weiner, sharing the guilt she feels over Weiner’s personal and legal woes potentially costing Clinton the 2016 presidential election. Speaking out to CBS Sunday Morning for the first time about her new memoir Both/And: A Life in Many Worlds, Abedin had already made news with the book’s revelation that an unnamed senator forcibly kissed her back in 2005. “Then, in an instant, it all changed,” she wrote of the encounter. “He plopped down to my right, put his left arm around my shoulder, and kissed me, pushing his tongue into my mouth, pressing me back on the sofa.” Despite writing that she was “utterly shocked” and “pushed him away,” Abedin told CBS anchor Norah O’Donnell that she considered the encounter an “uncomfortable situation” rather than a sexual assault. “In my own personal opinion, no, did I feel like he was assaulting me in that moment? I didn’t, it didn’t feel that way,” Abedin said. “It felt like I needed to extricate myself from...
    Former Secretary of State and failed presidential candidate Hillary Clinton continued to push the narrative that Russian President Vladimir Putin "helped elect" former President Donald Trump on Wednesday.  Clinton, who lost the 2016 presidential election to Trump, joined MSNBC’s "Morning Joe" to offer her thoughts on President Biden’s meeting with the Russian leader. The former Democratic nominee used the opportunity to praise Biden, bash Trump and declare that Putin contributed to her loss.  BILL MAHER NOW ADMITS RUSSIAGATE WAS ‘REPORTED ERRONEOUSLY’ AFTER YEARS OF PUSHING TRUMP COLLUSION NARRATIVE "I think that [Biden’s] long history with foreign relations, his eight years as vice president seeing what worked, what didn’t work, watching the disaster of the Trump presidency in basically giving a green light to Putin to do whatever he wanted – once he helped elect Trump, of course – I think you’ll see a much different approach," Clinton said.  HILLARY CLINTON DUNKS ON TRUMP WITH CHECKMARK TWEET AFTER PRESIDENT'S TWITTER BAN Clinton’s comment went unchecked by the MSNBC hosts, who pivoted to a question about dealing with Putin without elevating him....
    Donald trump he has charged for six years against everything that went against his policy. The Republican, who today cedes the presidency of the United States to Joe biden, has starred in an abrupt presidency, full of insults and disqualifications. The insults of Donald Trump have been against people, places and things, and the diary New York Times has gone to the trouble of compiling in a long list of the 281 “people, places and things” to which the Republican has given some insult on his Twitter account. The list runs from June 2015, when Trump announced his candidacy for the US presidency, until January 8, 2021, the day on which Twitter definitively censored the Republican after encouraging the assault on the Capitol. Insults against Hillary Clinton, Obama, Twitter, Ted Cruz, Facebook, Twitter … The NYT list collects nearly 4,000 tweets in which Trump attacks Hillary Clinton, Obama, journalists, the media and even Republicans like Ted Cruz or Jeb Bush. Nothing and no one has escaped the insults of Donald Trump in these six years: the FBI,...
    Former Democratic Party operative Peter Daou said Tuesday evening that President-elect Joe Biden “should be disqualified from the presidency.” Daou tweeted a video which, he claimed, shows that Biden has acted inappropriately around young women and children. The former Washington insider slammed President Donald Trump — who has been accused of unwarranted physical contact and assault — but called on liberals to hold Biden to the same standard. “That doesn’t negate the fact that Biden should be disqualified from the presidency, with multiple allegations of inappropriate contact.” The video Daou shared was created by professor Anthony Zenkus, an expert on trauma. The compilation suggested that Biden has a habit of violating women and children’s personal space by touching and kissing them without consent. In the clip, Zenkus claimed that the Democrat’s behavior resembles that of a predator who ignores people’s boundaries. Predators, the expert said, “will engage with the child and continue them despite the fact that a child squirms away or pulls away or voices any sort of discomfort, verbally or nonverbally.” In a tweet, explained said that he...
    Former Vice President Joe Biden may have crossed the Electoral College threshold to win the 2020 presidential race – but he did so amid a shift in demographics that failed to deliver the landslide victory Democrats had hoped for. Hispanic voters in particular increasingly broke for President Donald Trump, according to preliminary data from the Fox News Voter Analysis. The nationwide survey of more than 100,000 voters was conducted for Fox News by the NORC at the University of Chicago, an independent, nonpartisan research center. FOX NEWS VOTER ANALYSIS: BIDEN'S PATH TO THE PRESIDENCY President-elect Joe Biden answers a reporter's question at The Queen theater, Nov. 10, in Wilmington, Del. (AP Photo/Carolyn Kaster) As the votes were counted, it became apparent that Biden was underperforming former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s margins in heavily Hispanic precincts in Florida, which President Trump won. Nationally, Biden garnered support from 63% of voters who identify as Hispanic or Latino, according to the survey, down from Clinton’s 66% in 2016 (according to Pew Research Center validated voter data). At the same time,...
    After a half-century in elective politics and three presidential bids, Joe Biden has finally won the White House. The Fox News Decision Desk projected on Saturday that the Democratic nominee will win the state of Nevada and the commonwealth of Pennsylvania, giving the former vice president the electoral votes he needs to defeat President Trump and capture the presidency. ELECTION 2020 LIVE UPDATES: FOX NEWS PROJECTS BIDEN WINS PRESIDENCY "I am honored and humbled by the trust the American people have placed in me and in Vice President-elect Harris," Biden said in a statement. "In the face of unprecedented obstacles, a record number of Americans voted. Proving once again, that democracy beats deep in the heart of America."

    The voter turnout for the 2020 presidential election was massive by recent standards. But it didn't come close to surpassing the record set in 1876. That year, 81.8% of eligible American voters went to the polls. The winner was Republican Rutherford B. Hayes, though he received fewer votes than his Democratic opponent, Samuel Tilden. Because 20 electoral votes were disputed, neither won a majority of the Electoral College, the election went to the House of Representatives, and it set up a commission that awarded the presidency to Hayes. No reliable data is available until 1828. But during the last two-thirds of the 19th century, voter turnout of more than 70 percent of those eligible was common — often reflecting sharp discord. The second highest turnout — 81.2 percent — was in 1860, when Abraham Lincoln defeated Stephen Douglas. Even before Lincoln took office, seven Southern states seceded. In 1920 and 1924, turnout dropped to 49.2 percent and 48.9 percent, respectively, as women gained suffrage and the number of eligible voters doubled. In most years since, somewhere between 50 percent...
    Arizonas COVID Shutdowns Threaten Constitutional Principles | Opinion British supermarket chain launches frozen chicken nugget into space to celebrate anniversary Opinion: ‘Trump stocks’ have significantly lagged the U.S. market since 2016 — while ‘Clinton stocks’ have soared FA CENTER © Getty Images The first Trump-Biden debate was deja vu for Hillary Clinton. Take with a big grain of salt any forecasts of which stocks will do well if Joe Biden wins the U.S. presidency. To be sure, these forecasts can make for interesting reading, but to paraphrase a quotation from Warren Buffett, their only value is to make fortune tellers look good. Consider what happened four years ago when analysts were trying to guess which stocks would do well during a Clinton administration and which under a Trump administration. They couldn’t have been more wrong. From two different websites at the time I collected 25 stocks that would supposedly thrive if Clinton were elected and 23 stocks to bet on in anticipation of a Trump victory. I calculated these stocks’ return from their closing prices on 2016’s Election Day...
    Former Secretary of State and 2016 Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton said President Donald Trump was about to be “canceled” by the American voters during Tuesday’s broadcast of MSNBC’s pre-presidential debate coverage. Anchor Rachel Maddow said, “Do you feel like there were sort of Democratic candidate lessons learned from your experience going up against him three years ago? I mean, we’ve been talking about how the one thing that President Trump has proven to be good at is being on TV and debates, to a certain extent, it is going to be something Americans watch on TV as a bit of a political TV show. Gaming him or one gauging him is hard. You know from personal experience that he likes to get personal and petty. Have we developed a sense of best practices for staying within your own ethics and your own approach and also fending some of that off?” Clinton said, “I think so. Look, I think that his big advantage of having been a so-called reality TV star and then in having been if people’s living rooms on their...
    FBI analysts who had knowledge into the investigation of former national security adviser Michael Flynn were concerned about the agency's conduct, with some speculating that certain agents wanted Hillary Clinton to be president. According to court filings from Flynn's lawyers, one FBI employee said the case against the former general was a 'nightmare.' The concerns were expressed by FBI employees in the early days of the federal investigation into Flynn's ties with Russia sometime in August 2016. According to Fox News, one FBI analyst speculated that the investigation showed that some agents 'wanted a Clinton presidency' and not a 'wild card like Trump.' The court filings also contained text messages in which FBI analysts questioned the agency's use of national security letters to obtain Flynn's finances. Lawyers for Michael Flynn (above), President Trump's former national security adviser, filed papers in court containing text messages claiming to show that FBI analysts were concerned about the bureau's conduct in the investigation into his alleged ties with Russia NSL is an administrative subpoena issued by the federal government that does not require...

    President Donald Trump welcomed Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton the 'field of battle' on Wednesday night, shortly before the two prepared to open fire on his presidency during their speeches at the Democratic National Convention. The president tweeted a video that accuses Obama and Clinton of spying on him and setting up his administration to fail. 'Welcome, Barack and Crooked Hillary. See you on the field of battle!,' he wrote. The video, which runs about 100 seconds, news reports on the 'unmasking' - or naming - of officials who requested information about Michael Flynn, Trump's pick for National Security Adviser who eventually resigned that position and charges there was 'political spying' on Trump's 2016 campaign.  President Donald Trump welcomed Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton the 'field of battle' on Wednesday night, shortly before the two prepared to open fire on his presidency during their speeches at the Democratic National Convention  In excerpts of their speeches to the Democratic convention, neither Barack Obama nor Hillary Clinton hold back in criticizing Donald Trump's lack of qualifications to be president...
