You might have heard that there was a fire today at the Clinton compound in Chappaqua. It was in a Secret Service facility and was quickly contained. No one was injured, and the Clintons were not home at the time.

(CNN) A small fire broke out in a US Secret Service facility on the property of the home of Bill and Hillary Clinton in Chappaqua, New York, on Wednesday.

The building was not connected to the home of the former US President and former US Secretary of State, and the Clintons were not there at the time of the fire, Hillary Clinton Communications Director Nick Merrill tweeted.

The fire was put out and nobody was injured, said Sgt. Arthur Mendoza of the New Castle Police Department.

The former first couple bought the home before Hillary Clinton’s successful 2000 run for a US Senate seat.

Chappaqua is about 40 miles north of New York City.

Hillary returned to Des Moines, IA today for a Democratic Party rally.

08-10-16-G-01

The person being removed by police was a animal rights activist who jumped the buffer.  It is understandable that everyone is a little jumpy after Trump’s remarks yesterday.  Clearly the Secret Service agents are on their toes (thank you!).

Why animal rights people are targeting Hillary is a mystery since she is the candidate with an animal protection agenda and Trumps kids were on a hunting trip last week.

Lee in Iowa was there.  Check her out on Twitter!  History teachers here will be interested to know that Lee writes history textbooks.

Me in the silver with friends Shelly and Beth. I think you know the lady in green.

Great pic Lee & company!

Here’s the video. Look for Hillary to come on a little past the one hour 15 minute marker.

There is zero chance that Bernie Sanders will be the nominee, and he won’t suspend his campaign.  Technically that keeps us all on the hook for big bucks.  All of this is framed by his crusade to “transform” the Democratic Party – a party he did not stand with for the Senate filibuster.

An expensive reminder that Sanders still hasn’t dropped out: His Secret Service detail

BURLINGTON, Vt. — When Sen. Bernie Sanders, the now-vanquished Democratic presidential candidate, returns to Capitol Hill to vote Monday, he is expected to be accompanied by his constant traveling companions from the campaign trail: the U.S. Secret Service.

Although Hillary Clinton has clinched the party’s nomination, Sanders retains one of the trappings of a top-notch candidate. A team of agents still guards him at his home, where they’ve constructed a small watch station on the property. They travel with him on commercial and charter flights and use a motorcade to whisk him through cities he visits. And they recently marched alongside him during a gay-pride event here in his home town after the Orlando shootings.

Such round-the-clock protection can cost taxpayers more than $38,000 a day. And with the potential for the Secret Service to be watching over Sanders through the Democratic convention in Philadelphia five weeks from now, the taxpayers may get stuck with a big security bill long after his campaign receded from the daily cable-news cycle.

Hillary wrapped up her one-day visit to Canada in Saskatchewan last night.  Here is some local coverage.

 

Extremism spreading, Hillary Clinton tells Saskatoon crowd

Former U.S. secretary of state praises Canadian health care, says she admires Tommy Douglas

CBC News Posted: Jan 21, 2015 5:30 AM CTLast Updated: Jan 22, 2015 7:12 AM CT

Hillary Clinton talked about terrorism, democracy, the importance of early childhood education, but not the Keystone XL pipeline.

Terrorism, democracy, and Saskatchewan’s early leadership role in health care were among the topics covered by Hillary Clinton in Saskatoon Wednesday.

The former U.S. secretary of state did not quite pack the house at TCU Place. But close to 2,000 people streamed in to hear a speech by the woman who is widely expected to make a second bid for the U.S. presidency.

They paid in the range of $84 to $315 for the privilege.

Clinton focused most of her formal address on the topic of Islamic extremism — and how the U.S. and Canada should respond. Coincidentally, it was the same evening that the Amadiyya Muslim Students’ Association was holding a video presentation and discussion at the University of Saskatchewan, on Islamist de-radicalization.

Finally, to cap off the foray above the border, BIG thanks to Dan Merica and Cassie Spodak at CNN for refuting a ridiculous lie that buzzed around the Hillary-nets this week.  For the record:

No, Hillary Clinton didn’t go to Canada with 65 Secret Service agents

The Still 4 Hillers here have made it clear in words an actions that we do not tolerate attacks against Hillary Clinton or theft of her identity in social media.  When an attack as vicious and vile as a recent rant by radio personality Pete Santilli occurs, however,  it goes beyond Hillary’s loyalists to defend her,  and we look to the authorities.  Thanks to TPM (and Bea for finding this) we now know that the Secret Service is aware of Santilli’s repugnant and threatening remarks.

Secret Service Looking Into Radio Host’s Graphic Violent Comments About Obama, Hillary Clinton

Hillary Clinton

11710

The Secret Service is following up on recent comments by right wing radio host Pete Santilli, who claimed to want to shoot former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton in the vagina and see President Obama tried and shot for treason.

“We are aware of Mr. Santilli’s comments and will take the appropriate follow up action,” Edwin M. Donovan, a Secret Service spokesperson, told TPM on Monday. “He certainly has a right to free speech, but the Secret Service has a right and an obligation to determine what a person’s intent is when making comments like this.”

He made the threatening comments the week before last on his eponymous Internet based radio program. Santilli is a fringe figure who has made threatening comments on his program in the past. But he’s gained some quasi-mainstream attention recently with guests like Ted Nugent and Gun Owners of America director Larry Pratt.
