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 »

The Hillary-Donald Week in Review

This has been a bad week for both presidential candidates. Let’s begin with Hillary. The evidence is piling up that the infamous Clinton Foundation is little more than a conduit to enhance Hillary’s climb to power, fueled by funds from foreign sources. Remember that kerfuffle back in 2008 about who would be most ready to answer a 3 a.m. phone call? Well, now we know the answer: We now know that big donors to the Clinton Foundation got a fast… Read more »

Priorities: The Obama Version

Four police officers have died from attacks in the last nine days. One was a particularly brutal attack from behind at a gas station, practically execution style. Our president has said nothing publicly about any of those attacks. The Kate Steinle family is now suing the city of San Francisco for the murder of their daughter by an illegal immigrant who was deported five times and ordered to be turned over to the federal government, but San Francisco officials allowed… Read more »

Sanctuary City Chaos

Kate Steinle’s body has been laid to rest. Her family is still stunned by how she was wantonly shot dead on a San Francisco pier by Francisco Sanchez, an illegal immigrant who had been deported five times and had been jailed on drug charges. Why was he still in this country? Why was he not in the hands of Immigration and Customs? Ask Sanchez, and he will tell you—as he did when asked by authorities—that he went to San Francisco… 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 »

Happy New Year? Will Government Help or Hurt?

The last two days I’ve looked at the role of Christians and the moral/cultural climate as we peer into 2015. I’ve said that the key to this being a happier year is whether real Christians take their task as salt and light seriously. Then I dissected the trend of the culture morally, showing the immense job we have ahead of us. Today, let’s consider government’s role, and what it does, either to help reverse current trends or push us further… Read more »

Cartoon Potpourri

This will be my last blog post until the new year, so let me leave you with a plethora (look it up) of political cartoons to help tide you over. Whenever you need a cartoon fix over the next couple of weeks, just come back here. Let’s begin with a man who has made real news this year, probably the most honest man who has worked with the government (at least until he was put before a congressional panel to… Read more »
