2016 Is Not a Replay of 1980

So we now have the notes the FBI took when they interrogated Hillary Clinton about her e-mail server. What have we discovered? She is adept at blaming her staff for everything and protesting that she doesn’t “recall” almost anything having to do with training on how to handle sensitive documents. This is after having signed forms that testified she knew the specifics of how to handle such documents. What comes across is that she is playing the “I just don’t… Read more »

A Squandered Opportunity

There has never been a more eminently beatable candidate than Hillary Clinton. Yet she is now poised to win the presidency despite her manifold lies, despicable character, disastrous tenure as secretary of state, and no real record of accomplishments. The latest is that the FBI has now “found” another 15,000 e-mails that ran through her private server. We will be told what is in some of those by mid-October, according to the report I read. One has to wonder if… Read more »

The Astounding Non-Indictment

I watched the entirety of the statement FBI Director James Comey made yesterday about whether to indict Hillary Clinton for mishandling government documents while she was secretary of state. My reaction as I watched was the same as countless others have shared afterwards. Comey spent approximately 14 of his 15 minutes laying out a very strong case for a Clinton indictment. As I watched, I actually began to believe that was where he was going to end up. His litany… Read more »

Is Justice Dead Yet?

Unbelievable. Well, not really. We’re talking about the Clintons here. To what am I referring? That secret not-so-secret meeting that took place between the former president and the current attorney general, Loretta Lynch. Let’s see now, why would Bill Clinton want to speak to the person in charge of investigating his wife who is running for president? For the life of me, I just can’t figure that out, can you? Oh, that explains it. Nothing to see here. Move on…. Read more »

And on the Democrat Side . . .

I’ve spent more time analyzing the Republican field than the Democrat. Of course, one reason is that there’s really no “field” on the Democrat side, but it has become more interesting. This was supposed to be a Hillary coronation, but it hasn’t quite worked out the way she expected. I admit I never thought Bernie Sanders would get any traction anywhere. Maybe I was living in a dream world where I never imagined that even in the Democrat party an… Read more »

The Hillary Predicament

Hillary Clinton is in trouble, although she continues to laugh off her troubles as some kind of vast right-wing conspiracy. On the purely political front, she’s behind Bernie Sanders in the polls in both Iowa and New Hampshire. Bernie Sanders??? That has to be humiliating. The reasons have to do with the lack of enthusiasm by Democrats for someone so flawed to be their candidate. Other polls show that Americans think she is a liar (Benghazi, e-mails, etc.) and her… Read more »

Erecting Our Own Gallows

Yesterday’s post dealt with the ongoing Gosnell trial—the one many Americans have never heard of, thanks to the ideologically biased news media—and President Obama’s speech before Planned Parenthood, in which he pledged his unyielding support of abortion—without ever using the word, of course. Sometimes, the best political cartoons about an event appear after I’ve written about it. I think this one is particularly clear and direct: I don’t think it’s a stretch to believe Obama is far more concerned about… Read more »
