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 »

Hillary, Biden, & Trump–Oh, My!

I understand there’s a Democrat presidential debate this week. Forgive me if I’m not really interested in watching it. I have more important things to do than listen to five socialists argue about how to destroy the country even more. The presumed frontrunner for the Democrats, Hillary Clinton, has a lot on the line. A bad performance—because let’s be serious, that’s all these debates are—may throw her erstwhile supporters into an even greater panic than what they’re currently experiencing. I’m… Read more »

Hillary & Other People’s Rules

Yes, it’s time for another Hillary Clinton post. The State Department released more of her e-mails last night—late last night. One gets the impression the State Department is working on her behalf, hoping people won’t notice. When asked yesterday by Ed Henry of Fox News whether the department believes Clinton followed all the rules for using e-mails, the spokesperson declined to answer. One hopes, though, the FBI will fulfill its role and conduct a thorough investigation. By the way, last… Read more »

A Weird Campaign Season

This has been a weird campaign season. On the Republican side, no one expected the rise of Donald Trump to the top of the pack. As for Democrats, everyone anticipated a Hillary coronation. She, however, has been her own worst enemy. At first, most commentators, myself included, fully expected her to weather the storm simply because she is a Clinton, and Clintons always get away with their misdeeds. But lately, with the Democrats themselves in a panic over her obvious… Read more »

On the Bad Ship Hillary

The Clinton e-mail saga began with a straight denial of having done anything wrong and the assertion that she had turned over everything that needed to be turned over to the State Department (where all the e-mails should have resided in the first place). That was supposed to settle everything. Why? Because she said so. It turned out that even some of what Hillary turned over were top secret documents that never should have been on a private server. This… Read more »

Clinton’s Fading Star

Hillary Clinton is probably delighted with all the attention Donald Trump is receiving, allowing her troubled campaign to fly under most people’s radar. But not mine. If you have been out of the Hillary loop for a while now, let me update you. The investigation into her e-mail server continues apace, and despite the protestations, it is a potential criminal investigation. Not only did she conduct official government business on a personal server, but it is now obvious she lied… Read more »

The Week in Review

For today, how about a quick review of this week’s highlights? Or are they lowlights? You decide. A Texas federal judge stayed Obama’s executive order granting amnesty to illegal immigrants. This was a jolt to the president, who has been very consistent throughout his presidency on this issue: Will he stand for this affront to his executive authority? Then we had State Department spokesvalleygirl Marie Harf offering her solution for Islamic terrorism—all they need is jobs! I can see the… Read more »
