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 »

Taking a Stand Against Evil

Back in the 2008 election, I held an event on the Southeastern campus where I compared the Republican and Democrat platforms. Without saying anything myself about my own beliefs, I simply laid out the differences between the parties. Normally, that’s a very effective approach. At the very least, it makes people come to grips with the extremism on the Democrat side on issues like abortion. This year, the Democrat platform is even more extreme, pushing same-sex marriage also. At the… Read more »

About October Surprises

Remember all those predictions about “October surprises” in this presidential election campaign? A lot of things are breaking on both sides this October. But none of them are really surprises. The ones receiving less coverage, for obvious reasons since the media is on her side, are those swirling around Hillary Clinton: mocking Christians; lying to the people (having different private and public views on policy); coordinating with the media; giving favors to big donors to the Clinton Foundation. The thing… Read more »

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 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 »

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 »

The Campaign Show

This presidential campaign is certainly a show, if nothing else. I do believe it is something else, however; most of the GOP candidates are at least addressing the issues. But we have had our fair share of strange moments. When’s the last time the supposed frontrunner for one party was being investigated for federal offenses, the kind that could land a person in prison? The FBI investigation into Hillary Clinton’s personal e-mail server handling top-security matters and the manner in… Read more »
