Published

Journalist Ronan Farrow recently stated that Hillary Clinton has tried to distance herself from him after she discovered that he was investigating a number of sexual assault allegations against one of her dear friends, Hollywood mogul Harvey Weinstein.

Here are more details from The Washington Examiner:

“It’s remarkable how quickly even people with a long relationship with you will turn if you threaten the centres of power or the sources of funding around them,” Farrow told the Financial Times.

“Ultimately, there are a lot of people out there who operate in that way. They’re beholden to powerful interests and if you go up against those interests, you become radioactive very quickly,” he said.

Clinton appointed Farrow as her special adviser on global youth issues in 2011 when she was secretary of state. Farrow said he had worked with Clinton “for years” when he was looking into the Weinstein story.

Weinstein donated a tens of thousands of dollars to various groups that supported Clinton’s 2016 presidential campaign according to data gathered from the Federal Election Committee.

Not long after Farrow’s report about the allegations facing Weinstein, Clinton claimed to be “shocked and appalled.”

Farrow stated back in 2018 that Clinton’s aides attempted to back out of an interview with him he had scheduled at the height of the Weinstein reporting after discovering the majority of the discussion would be about the movie producer’s bad behavior.

“Hillary Clinton had scheduled an interview while it was at the height of the Weinstein reporting and her folks got in touch and said, ‘We hear you’re working on a big story,'” Farrow stated. “[They] sounded very concerned and tried to cancel that interview.”

Elizabeth Warren Asked How She’ll Pay For Her Policies; She Says ‘There’s Always Money’

Published

on

Presidential candidate Sen. Elizabeth Warren, who has been asked repeatedly how she plans to pay for something like Medicare for All, and each time the question comes up, it seems as if she can’t give a solid answer. Warren recently dismissed the idea that her ability to provide funding for the massive expansion of federal programs she wants to make law will be hindered by finite amounts of cash available. Here’s more from TheBlaze: Warren made the comments during an interview in November with Lily Eskelsen Garcia, president of the National Education Association. Garcia had asked Warren about increasing funding for Title I of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act and the Individuals With Disabilities Education Act, and how that might be paid for. “So the answer is yes. And pay for it? This is about our priorities, what matters most to us,” Warren answered. “A budget is about priorities. … The way I see it, there’s always, come on, there’s always money. It’s there. Are we going to spend the money on defense or are we going to spend the money on our children?” https://youtu.be/X7PsSTivy1E Warren’s approach to financial questions about her ambitious policies has been one of the biggest sources of criticism of her campaign. She has insisted, for example, that Medicare for All can be implemented without taxes being raised on middle class Americans, partially by reducing the amount of money allocated toward military spending. Most of the other Democratic candidates running for president have come out and criticized Warren for not being totally honest about where the money for her programs is going to come from. Warren has waved off these criticisms, saying they are just rehashing Republican talking points.

Michelle Obama Weighs In On Trump Impeachment; Says ‘It’s Surreal’

Published

Former First Lady Michelle Obama recently opened up and expressed her thoughts on the current impeachment inquiry against President Donald Trump, stating she feels the whole thing is “surreal.” Obama recently conducted an interview with NBC’s “Today Show” where she spoke with Jenna Bush Hager. During the course of the interview, Obama said she is optimistic the division ripping through America will eventually subside. Here’s more from Fox News: The daughter of former President George W. Bush asked Obama whether the country can come back from the divisive situation unfolding in Washington, D.C., as polls show Americans largely split along party lines on impeachment. “It’s surreal, I think,” said Obama, speaking from Vietnam, where she is on a trip to promote the education of young girls. “For the last impeachment hearing [in 1998], a lot of young people weren’t around for that. I don’t think people know what to make of it. But do I think we can come back from it? Oh yeah. “We’ve seen worse times, we’ve seen tough times in this country. You know, we’ve gone through depressions and wars and bombings and terrorist attacks, and we’ve gone through Jim Crow, and we’ve always come out stronger. And that’s what we have to continue to believe because what’s our choice? To ball up in a corner and call it a day? Well, that’s not fair to this next generation that’s coming before us that are counting on us to get this right,” Obama continued. Obama said the country should not view the impeachment inquiry as a battle of “us or them” or of Democrats against Republicans. https://twitter.com/TODAYshow/status/1204019184532885507 Obama concluded by saying, “We are all here as part of this country. We all want the same things, it’s just sometimes that gets lost in the noise.”
