President Obama sticks it too Hillary again


There may be a potential cat fight brewing in DC. Remember Samantha Power? She's the high level Obama aide who got canned by Team O during the primaries for calling Hillary Clinton a "monster". Well, she's back on Team O, this time as Obama's senior policy director of multilateral affairs over at the National Security Council. This means that the Hillary "monster" will be her boss. It also means that she will accompany Hillary on her many trips overseas. Let the kicking, scratching, and hair pulling begin.

By the way, Ms. Power is no friend of Israel.

Lawsuit filed claiming Secretary of State Hillary Clinton is constitutionally ineligible to serve

There were serious questions about the constitutional eligibility of Hillary Clinton to serve as secretary of State. Lawsuit filed claiming Secretary of State Hillary Clinton is constitutionally ineligible to serve. The issue arises from the Secretary of States salary having been raised during Hillary Clinton's term in the Senate. The Constitution forbids members of the Senate from being appointed to civil office, such as the Secretary of State, if the "emoluments," or salary and benefits, of the office were increased during the Senator's term. This clearly occurred. Congress tried to do an end run around the Constitution by lowering the Secretary of States salary. This does not change the historical fact that the salary of the Secretary of State was raised three times during Hillary Clinton's tenure as a Senator from New York. This case will eventually end up at the Supreme Court.
