Pirro: ‘I’m Tired of the Powerful and the Clintons Being Above the Law’


Saturday in her Fox News Channel “Justice” opening statement, Jeanine Pirro called for “truth and justice” in regards to Hillary Clinton’s shady dealings, as well those in power who aided her. Pirro began by noting how the Clinton Foundation received $145 million for the Uranium One deal and that Bill Clinton was paid $500,000 for a Moscow speech paid for by a Kremlin-backed bank while Hillary Clinton was Secretary of State, saying it is obvious the deep state exists. “I say law and order and truth and justice are the very foundations of this republic,” said Pirro. “I’m tired of the powerful and the Clintons being above the law — law each and every one of us must follow.” She later added, “Hillary is from the school of lie, deny and delay. She and the Obama Administration have thwarted Congress at every turn. Investigations are drawn out for so long that America’s collective memory fades to the point where no one really cares anymore, which is just what the plan was in the first place. Look, I was a judge. it’s simple. If someone is subpoenaed, and there is no response, you hold that person in contempt. You take a look at the facts, you prosecute, and if justified, you put

Panetta: Bill Clinton ‘More Than Paid the Price’ for Lewinsky Affair


Saturday on CNN, former Defense Secretary Leon Panetta, a chief of staff to former President Bill Clinton, said that Clinton “more than paid the price” for his sexual indiscretions. Panetta was asked by “CNN Newsroom” host Ana Cabrera about Clinton’s affair with then-White House intern Monica Lewinsky, to which Panetta said he thought the “shadow on the legacy” of his presidency from impeachment was the price he paid. “My own judgment with regards to President Clinton is that he more than paid the price for what he did. The fact that he went through an impeachment process as president of the United States — the House of Representatives voted for articles of impeachment. The Senate did not. But the mere fact that he went through an impeachment process as president means that there will always be a shadow on the legacy of his presidency. So, at least from my point of view, he’s more than paid the price.” Follow Jeff Poor on Twitter @jeff_poor

Frank Schaeffer: Evangelicals Are Treating Women Like South Africa Treated Black People in Apartheid


During a Saturday panel discussion on MSNBC’s “AM Joy” about Republican U.S. Senate hopeful Roy Moore sexual assault allegations, author Frank Schaeffer accused evangelicals of treating women the same South Africans treated black people during the apartheid era. “The evangelicals are experts at discounting women’s points of views,” Schaffer, the son of an evangelical preacher, stated. He added that evangelicals take the writings of Paul as “women should sit down and shut up in church and not be heard from — and not just church, any situation, and be in obedience to your husband,” which he likened to the apartheid era where blacks were not seen equally as whites. “[Y]ou could have 20 black witnesses talking about a cop taking someone out and beating them to death [and] none of it counted because they weren’t full human beings,” Schaeffer said. “Evangelicals treat women that way, discount what they say and now are preaching moral relativism. I just want that to sink in to the audience, moral relativism being preached from evangelicals.” Follow Trent Baker on Twitter @MagnifiTrent
