Everyone Else Is to Blame

Some people just won’t go away. Former president Obama is one. He’s already making public comments on his successor, pointedly criticizing his policies. It might be helpful if Obama could remember how George W. Bush treated him when he took office. Honoring a long tradition of allowing the new president to set his own course, Bush never launched into a public critique. But that was when honor was still something people cared about. Now we have Hillary Clinton refusing to… Read more »

The Most Corrupt Power-Couple in American History

Let’s see. Last week another treasure trove of Hillary e-mails was discovered—15,000, to be exact. Now investigators have uncovered another bundle that were supposedly personal and destroyed, among which 30 are related to Benghazi. Nothing to it, Hillary assures us. She jokes on late-night television that her main embarrassment over the e-mails is that they are so boring. And the audience goes along with the joke. Isn’t the joke perhaps on all Americans? It also appears that the e-mail scandal… Read more »

That Benghazi Report

The far-too-long-awaited Benghazi Report has now been released. Democrats naturally call it a partisan witchhunt; some conservatives are criticizing it for not going far enough, since it just relates the facts and doesn’t come to concrete conclusions. The facts should be enough. The report is less a commentary on the administration’s actions during and after the terrorist attack than it is a primary-document exposé of the fecklessness and political cover of the Obama administration as it headed into the 2012… Read more »

The Hillary Update–If It Makes Any Difference

Islamic terrorism. Donald Trump. Refugees. Immigration. Lost in the headlines is the ongoing Hillary Clinton saga, but I’m here to remind you all about her and her character. For instance, did you know that more classified e-mails were released lately. You know, the ones she said she never sent from her private e-mail server? Last count? I think it’s about 1,000. But who cares? That’s old news, right? I seem to remember a president who had to resign from the… Read more »

The False Benghazi Hearing Narrative

Hillary Clinton’s testimony before the Benghazi Committee has been declared a “win” for her by the mainstream media. They report, almost breathlessly, how calm and collected she was. At the same time, they paint a picture of Republicans on the committee as out of control and frustrated by the answers offered by the smartest woman in the world. Well, that’s the narrative from the usual suspects. In fact, that narrative wasn’t anywhere close to the truth. What we got was… Read more »

Trey Gowdy, Hillary Clinton, & Truth

I just read through Congressman Trey Gowdy’s opening statement to the special committee to investigate what happened at Benghazi. Unless you live under a rock somewhere, you know Hillary Clinton was called to testify to the committee yesterday. I am so impressed with that opening statement that I want to share some of it here. It’s a heartening example why we should not stereotype all politicians as grubby, dishonest moral reprobates. I applaud the clarity of Gowdy’s statement and its… Read more »

2016’s Worst-Case Scenario

Joe Biden says he is out of the 2016 race, then proceeds to give a 25-minute campaign speech. Why? Commentator Charles Krauthammer thinks he is positioning himself should lightning strike Hillary Clinton in the form of a federal indictment. Any indictment that may come will be the result of an FBI investigation into her e-mail scandal, but there are other reasons to fervently oppose a Hillary nomination, with Benghazi being a key one. Today the House special committee investigating Benghazi… Read more »
