    Boone Pickens: Hillary Clinton will drop out of 2016 race......

    Noted oil and gas man T. Boone Pickens isn’t shy about his feelings on Washington, and he didn’t hold back in an interview with Yahoo Finance Editor-in-Chief Andy Serwer at the Milken Global Conference in Los Angeles. Pickens, Founder of BP Capital, says, “I don’t think Washington has a clue” just how extensive U.S. energy resources are. Pickens says the number one thing he would like to see from the next President is a U.S. energy policy, which he believes is non-existent at this point.

    Pickens says he doesn’t think Clinton will make it to the end of the campaign. He says, simply, “I think she’ll pull out of the deal.” Pickens points to questions surrounding Clinton’s use of a personal email account and server during her time as Secretary of State. In a news conference about the email account, former Secretary Clinton said she had some 30,000 emails deleted out of more than 60,000 emails sent or received between March 2009 and February 2013.

    “She’s got too much to explain… scrubbing the server like she did,” he says. “Her timing may be very bad.”.....snip~

    Yahoo!
    I think Boone Pickens was speaking about his hope rather than reality. He know how formidable she is.

    Bill Clinton on Huge Speaking Fees: 'I Gotta Pay Our Bills,' You Know



    When Congressional investigators started asking too many questions, she directed her lawyers to cull those emails without any oversight, then wipe the server. It appears as though many Americans aren't especially inclined to take the Clintons at their word:

    Americans appear to be suspicious of Hillary Rodham Clinton's honesty, and even many Democrats are only lukewarm about her presidential candidacy, according to a new Associated Press-GfK poll. Is she strong and decisive? Yes, say a majority of people. But inspiring and likable? Only a minority think so. Clinton's struggles to explain her email practices while in government, along with questions about the Clinton Foundation and Republican criticism of her openness, wealth and trustworthiness seem to have struck a nerve in the public's perception of the dominant Democratic figure in the 2016 campaign. In the survey, 61 percent said "honest" describes her only slightly well or not at all. Nearly four in 10 Democrats, and more than six in 10 independents agreed that "honest" was not the best word for her.....snip~

    Has anyone ever had an opportunity to ask her the name of the person who wiped out the hard drive for her?

    Innoculated? I would go with something more like. Pin Cushion. .....
    IMO, the electoral outcomes are not certainties, as much can happen between now and the end of the primary process and general election. However, I suspect that if Hillary Clinton is defeated, that outcome will have little to do with either Benghazi or the e-mail issue. The Benghazi issue has been repeatedly and thoroughly investigated. The e-mail issue was under intense scrutiny. There really don't appear to be too many "unknowns" left, especially with respect to the former matter.

    Instead, a defeat would more likely result from among the following possible scenarios:

    1. The ongoing economic expansion fades with the unemployment rate increasing in the months ahead of the election. There are some headwinds that could trigger such an outcome, but the continuation of a highly accommodative monetary policy by the Fed (even with some small increases in interest rates), possible stabilization or return to at least modest growth in the EU, continuing growth in parts of Asia, and fairly low energy prices, all suggest that downside risks are probably not too significant.

    2. A candidate's successfully creating a narrative that U.S. foreign policy and its world role is in a markedly worse state than it has been in quite some time, with real foreign policy, national security, and economic risks for the nation and his/her successfully tying Secretary Clinton to that outcome. In effect, the candidate's challenge would be to convince the nation that it is losing control of its own destiny, the path proposed by Clinton would not alter that unfavorable trend, and that Clinton's decisions contributed to that state of affairs.

    3. A candidate's successfully articulating a coherent and attractive vision for the country and effectively making the case that he/she can bring about that vision (ability to work with Congress, governance experience, demonstrated leadership). That vision would need to appear more attractive and more realistic than the one advanced by Clinton.

    4. Errors and missteps by the Clinton campaign. In the Democratic Party nominating process, there are no really strong opponents. Sen. Sanders has a small, passionate base of support. In some ways, as a Socialist, he's the "Ron Paul" of the Democratic Party. Gov. O'Malley also stands little chance. He was succeeded by a Republican governor in an overwhelmingly Democratic Party majority state and that's a fairly decisive repudiation of his record. Sen. Warren almost certainly won't seek the nomination and would have limited appeal (mainly the progressive wing), though she would be stronger than either Sanders or O'Malley.

    That list is not all-inclusive. More than likely, some combination will be required, especially if the economic expansion continues. For now, at least the way I see it at this point in time, those are some big challenges and the electoral landscape continues to tilt toward a Clinton election. Such an outcome is not cast in stone and things can change.

    Yeah sure, the NY Times was the one who broke email story.

    IMO, not great. She could have done better. But in the larger and more important context (than my opinion), her polling resiliency suggests that she did enough to meet the public's expectations. Winning the support of enough of the electorate is the ultimate test of a candidate.

    Well, it is rich people that rake up debts that can only be satisfied by million dollar speaking fees. The Clintons are in the top of the 1%. Was he expecting people to feel sorry for him with that.

    There have been no press conferences with Hillary since her campaign began so there have been no opportunities to ask her about the Foundation & emails.

    Yeah that was a big unforced error but he doesn't have much to work with on the subject these days.
    He was dancing as fast as he could.

Such an outcome is not cast in stone and things can change.

    Well here is some news that will come out with the Benghazi part which will be connected to her emails and her server.....but like Gowdy stated. He also had questions concerning Libya Policy and the rest of Libya and Security. So that will be some more new revelations that will arise.

    Moreover other committee members have stated they will be calling in Blumenthal to testify. He can of course, take the 5th.




    If the motives to wipe the hard drive on Hillary Clinton’s e-mail server weren’t already crystal clear, a new development last night put it in Ultra HD. Gawker’s Jeff Girth and Sam Biddle uncovered a secret, private intelligence network run by Sidney Blumenthal for Hillary’s benefit, apart from the State Department’s own Bureau of Intelligence and Research. Hackers got e-mails that went through Hillary’s private server between her and Blumenthal, e-mails that show her own private intel group was also warning her that Libya was collapsing in the weeks and months prior to the sacking of the consulate in Benghazi:

    It also seems that Hillary’s private intelligence operation penetrated other intel groups, including those of allies. On one level, one could be impressed with the organization of such an effort — if it had led to better choices. Instead, the hacked e-mail trail here has Hillary’s own network warning her of a string of terrorist attacks in Benghazi three weeks before the attack on our consulate. By that time, of course, the US facility had already been hit by a bomb attack two months prior to these warnings, yet Hillary and Patrick Kennedy did nothing to boost security or get American personnel out of harms’ way. Why, with these warnings ringing in her ears, did she allow US Ambassador Chris Stevens to come to Benghazi at all? By the way, the e-mails also speak to the “YouTube video” cover story, and makes it clear that Hillary’s own private network had discounted the claim 48 hours after the attack:

    This goes beyond cover stories, though. What was a Secretary of State doing in running her own private intelligence service — and providing so little security for its communications? It’s getting very obvious why 32,000 e-mails got deleted from a four-year period, something like 21 e-mails every day in every year. It wasn’t just notes to Bill or discussions of Chelsea’s wedding plans that got wiped, but the records of Clintons’ clandestine network of operatives......snip~

    Was Hillary running a secret intel network? « Hot Air
