On a day when Hillary Rodham Clinton is winning headlines for calling President Trump a "creep" in excerpts of her upcoming book released to MSNBC, another book set for release next week said she put up with Bill Clinton's creepy groping of women.
Biographer Craig Shirley, who's written several authoritative histories on former President Ronald Reagan, poured over Clinton's womanizing and its impact on his early presidency in his latest book about former House Speaker Newt Gingrich, Citizen Newt, the Making of a Reagan Conservative....
"Everybody knew somebody who had a story about Clinton grabbing or groping a woman," Shirley wrote in Citizen Newt, provided to Secrets in advance of its August 29 release.
"The astonishing thing was not just that he got away with it, repeatedly, without being sued, but that Hillary put up with it, as did the American people. But Clinton had perfected the talent of ‘getting away with it' since his childhood. He could, as they say, charm the pants off of you. Or her," he penned on page 357 of the book published by Thomas Nelson Press, a branch of HarperCollins Christian Publishing Inc.
He referenced an American Spectator story about how Arkansas troopers "essentially acted as pimps for Clinton," and how, according to Time, the then-Arkansas governor would sometimes return home to an angry wife who would just yell.
Wrote Shirley: "Time magazine called him a ‘reckless, obsessive womanizer.' If Hillary was awakened in the wee hours by her glandular husband, according to Time's report, she would greet him with a ‘mouthful of four-letter words.'"...

Ex-Sen.Barbara Boxer's new PAC launches campaign targeting CA Republicans who have been “cowering in the corner”
Just months after retiring from Congress, former California Sen. Barbara Boxer has already raised more than $1.3 million for a new super PAC aimed at helping Democrats regain control of Congress in the 2018 elections. And on Wednesday, she launches her first salvo — a blistering attack ad targeting GOP Rep. Darrell Issa, considered the most vulnerable House member in California.
The ad from Boxer’s PAC for a Change is the first in a new “Resist and Replace” campaign which the ex-senator promises will relentlessly target California Republicans who have been “cowering in the corner” as President Donald Trump attempts to dismantle programs such as the Affordable Care Act....

A final paradox about killing the dead: Two millennia after Roman autocrats’ destruction of statues, and armed with the creepy 20th-century model of Fascists and Communists destroying the past, we, of a supposedly enlightened democracy, cannot even rewrite history by democratic means — local, state, and federal commission recommendations, referenda, or majority votes of elected representatives. More often, as moral cowards, we either rely on the mob or some sort of executive order enforced only in the dead of night.

Nearly $20 billion could help build 70000 California affordable homes – but is it enough? https://t.co/aaBaP6NAg0— CA Gas Tax Monitor (@CAGasTaxMonitor) August 21, 2017
...The most tenuous of the three bills, Senate Bill 2 by state Sen. Toni Atkins, D-San Diego, would establish a new recording fee on real estate transactions, ranging from $75 to $225. It would provide an annual source of revenue to fund affordable housing for low-income and homeless people. But some moderate Democrats have voiced concern over voting to raise fees on taxpayers following two high-profile votes in the Legislature this year raising gas taxes and vehicle license fees on motorists....

...Meanwhile, James O'Keefe at Project Veritas plans another dump on the media next month.
Beer for my horses, whiskey for my posse. We ride again at dawn...
...Ousted White House chief strategist Stephen Bannon returned to the conservative Breitbart News website on Friday and said he’ll be “going to war” for President Donald Trump, vowing to intensify the fight he has waged against opponents of his brand of populist conservatism.
“If there’s any confusion out there, let me clear it up: I’m leaving the White House and going to war for Trump against his opponents -- on Capitol Hill, in the media, and in corporate America,” Bannon told Bloomberg News Friday in his first public comments after his departure was announced.
Bannon led the evening editorial meeting at Breitbart, where he resumed his role as executive chairman, the website said in a statement. A person who was on the call said Bannon called on the group to "hunker down" and work like never before to advance conservative causes....
