( Daily Mail ) Bill and Hillary took a rare trip together over the weekend, with the pair heading down to Washington DC on Friday and then returning to New York on Sunday.
And in an even rarer move, the two flew commercial, which gave their fellow Delta passengers and travelers at Ronald Reagan International Airport a chance to snag a selfie with the former president and former secretary of state.
Videos of the two show Bill smiling and enthusiastically greeting fans, while Hillary stands off to the side surrounded by a wall of Secret Service agents.
The woman who shared that photo to Instagram was asked by one friend about meeting Hillary, and replied: ‘Unfortunately no one got a chance to talk to her since she stayed in the corner while Bill shook everyone’s hands and took countless selfies.’
Bill could be seen smirking and looked to be enjoiying the attention as the rest of the plane’s passengers filed to their seats.
Hillary on the other hand remained largely stoic while intensely reading a report.
Her husband was reading Crimson Lake, a thriller about a man wrongfully believed to have abducted a pre-teen.
BILL AND HILLARY CLINTON ‘OPEN MARRIAGE’ POSSIBLY ‘NOT BY CHOICE’ – SAYS CLINTON STRATEGIST MARK PENN
- Mark Penn, pollster for Bill Clinton in the 1990s and chief strategist for Hillary‘s 2008 presidential campaign: ‘These open marriages are based less on sex and more on love, creating additional meaningful relationships that are part of the marriage in some ways and that may come and go, revolving around the couple, which still serves as the core unit.’
- ‘There was also no question that at the same time their relationship was so deep and enduring. If this was the model of the first couple, what did it mean for the rest of the country?’
( Daily Mail ) The Clintons have ‘at least a one-way open marriage’, their former veteran pollster claims in his new book – in which he also bashes Hillary’s 2016 presidential campaign.
Mark Penn, who served as a pollster for Bill Clinton in the 1990s and chief strategist for Hillary‘s 2008 presidential campaign, says that the political couple’s open marriage was possibly ‘not by choice’.
He even references Kevin Spacey and Robin Wright’s characters on the hit political drama House of Cards, where the fictional first couple, Frank and Claire Underwood, ‘have numerous partners, including one who sleeps at the White House’.
Penn opens up about the Clintons in his upcoming book, Microtrends Squared: The New Small Forces Driving Today’s Big Disruptions.
‘It’s not hard to conclude that Bill and Hillary Clinton didn’t have at least a one-way open marriage,’ he writes. ‘Perhaps it was not by choice, but the stories accumulated over the years until the fact of it became apparent.
‘There was also no question that at the same time their relationship was so deep and enduring. If this was the model of the first couple, what did it mean for the rest of the country?’
Penn claims that open marriages are ‘perfect’ for Hollywood stars and other A-listers, pointing out that it could be ‘more stable’ than having serial marriages.
‘Hollywood usually does as Hollywood writes. For example, Frank and Claire Underwood in House of Cards have numerous partners, including one who sleeps at the White House, as they pretend to ignore it. There seems to be a rage of jealousy under the surface.’
He adds: ‘These open marriages are based less on sex and more on love, creating additional meaningful relationships that are part of the marriage in some ways and that may come and go, revolving around the couple, which still serves as the core unit.’
Bill and Hillary Clinton married in 1975 and have one daughter, Chelsea, together.
Their marriage has long been fraught with rumours of affairs and sexual harrassment accusations against Bill Clinton.
Among the scandals was Gennifer Flowers, whose 12-year affair with Bill during his time as attorney general and governor of Arkansas wrought havoc on his presidential bid in 1992.
Bill denied the affair in a Sixty Minutes special in 1992 during which Hillary sat by her husband’s side silently supporting his protestations of innocence.
TRUMP TO END BILL CLINTON-ERA MILITARY BASE GUN BAN: “If we can’t have our military holding guns, it’s pretty bad”
President Trump said Friday he will review policies that keeps military personnel from carrying weapons on base: “If we can’t have our military holding guns, it’s pretty bad.”
According to a Washington Times editorial written days after the Nov. 5, 2009 attack on soldiers at Fort Hood, one of Clinton’s “first acts upon taking office… was to disarm U.S. soldiers on military bases.”
Clinton’s actions birthed Army regulations “forbidding military personnel from carrying their personal firearms and making it almost impossible for commanders to issue firearms to soldiers in the U.S. for personal protection.”
Today, only the military police/security police on a military fort/base carry loaded weapons.
President Donald Trump said Friday that he would review policies that keep troops from carrying personal weapons onto military bases. “If we can’t have our military holding guns, it’s pretty bad,” Trump said in a wide-ranging speech to the annual Conservative Political Action Committee conference in Maryland, “and I’m going to look at that whole policy on military bases.”
“So we want to protect our military. We want to make our military stronger and better than it’s ever been,” Trump continued in the speech, in which he also renewed his call for allowing trained teachers and military retirees to carry concealed weapons in schools.
Schools and military bases currently are “gun-free zones” that are easy targets for deranged shooters such as the one in Parkland, Florida, who killed 17 at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School last week, Trump said.
Defense Department policy mainly has been that base security is the province of military police. In most cases, troops are required to leave their personal weapons at home or check them at the gate in an effort to prevent accidental shootings and discourage suicides.
Judicial Watch’s Tom Fitton took to YouTube this week to go over “document after document,” proving the crooked Clintons have been shamelessly “looting and abusing” the 2010 Haiti earthquake reconstruction funds.

Judicial Watch reported in July of 2013:
Can you say scandal? The former president, who has been heavily involved in distributing Haiti earthquake reconstruction funds, pushed hard for the power plant and port for an industrial park in northern Haiti billed as the centerpiece of the United States’ effort to help the ravaged island nation rebuild. As Secretary of State Hillary Clinton joined her husband in the effort, making several trips to Haiti to promote the project and encourage foreigners to invest in it. […]
Not really, according to a federal audit of the $1.14 billion that Congress approved to help Haiti recover from the powerful earthquake that killed more than 200,000 and left over 1 million homeless. […]
The investigation focused on $651 million that American taxpayers have given Haiti via the United States Agency for International Development (USAID) since 2010.
HOW DID HILLARY’S Brother, Tony Rodham, A Former Repo Man , End Up Sitting On The Board Of A Gold Mine In Haiti?
( 100%fedup) The Clinton’s opened an ugly, old wound today when they came out to join in the coordinated attack by the left of President Donald Trump, who was accused by Democrats of referring to Haiti as a “shithole” during a private meeting about DACA at the White House.
…. Sitting in a courtroom three years ago, after skipping out on a sizable legal bill, Hillary Rodham Clinton’s youngest brother struck a reassuring tone: Don’t worry, the money is coming.
“I deal through the Clinton Foundation,” Tony Rodham said, according to court transcripts uncovered by the New York Times. He gave his word that Hillary and Bill were setting him up with Haitian-government permits to build a $22 million housing development in the earthquake-stricken country.
“I hound my brother-in-law, because it’s his fund that we’re going to get our money from,” Rodham explained, promising a $1 million check once the Haitian-government paved the way, enough both to cover the outstanding legal fees and take his family to Disney World.
The construction deal fell through, but Rodham managed to settle his debt. And the next year, he got another crack at making money in Haiti’s heavily-regulated economy when he joined the advisory board of a company, VCS Mining, which was developing a gold mine on the island. –National Review
The Washington Post – Tony Rodham’s involvement with the mine, which has become a source of controversy in Haiti because of concern about potential environmental damage and the belief that the project will primarily benefit foreign investors, was first revealed in publicity about an upcoming book on the Clintons by author Peter Schweizer.
In interviews with The Washington Post, both Rodham and the chief executive of Delaware-based VCS Mining said they were introduced at a meeting of the Clinton Global Initiative — an offshoot of the Clinton Foundation that critics have long alleged invites a blurring of its charitable mission with the business interests of Bill and Hillary Clinton and their corporate donors.
Asked whether he attends CGI meetings to explore personal business opportunities, Rodham responded, “No, I go to see old friends. But you never know what can happen.”
BILL CLINTON SLAMS WIKILEAKS-SOURCE ACCUSATION CLINTON FOUNDATION MONEY WAS USED FOR CHELSEA’S WEDDING
According to emails released by WikiLeaks, Chelsea Clinton used the Clinton Foundation’s resources “for her wedding”, an aide to former US President Bill Clinton wrote in 2012.
Bill Clinton slams the accusations:
No Clinton Foundation funds—dedicated to Haiti or otherwise—were used to pay for Chelsea’s wedding. It’s not only untrue, it’s a personal insult to me, to Hillary, and to Chelsea and Marc
The Independent November 7, 2016 headline:
Chelsea Clinton ‘used Clinton Foundation funds to help pay for wedding’, hacked Wikileaks emails claim
Emails also allege Chelsea Clinton used the non-profit foundation’s resources for her ‘life for a decade’
Chelsea Clinton used the Clinton Foundation’s resources “for her wedding”, an aide to former US President Bill Clinton wrote in 2012, according to emails released by WikiLeaks.
They appear to show that Doug Band emailed John Podesta, chairman of Hillary Clinton’s 2016 presidential campaign, urging him to “speak to her and end this”.
The Justice Department just launched an investigation into whether the Clinton Foundation engaged in any pay-to-play or other illegal activities while Hillary Clinton was Secretary of State.
John Solomon of The Hill reported:
FBI agents from Little Rock, Ark., where the Foundation was started, have taken the lead in the investigation and have interviewed at least one witness in the last month, and law enforcement officials said additional activities are expected in coming weeks.
The officials, who spoke only on condition of anonymity, said the probe is examining whether the Clintons promised or performed any policy favors in return for largesse to their charitable efforts or whether donors made commitments of donations in hopes of securing government outcomes.
The probe may also examine whether any tax-exempt assets were converted for personal or political use and whether the Foundation complied with applicable tax laws, the officials said.
