What a mess. Every week, seemingly every other day, there is a new shady revelation about Bill and Hillary Clinton that manages to top the last one. For them there seems to be no bottom; for their supporters, there seems to be no self-respect.
On paper, Donald Trump offers a lot as a candidate. Hes able to command a room, he is decisive, confident, unapologetic for what he believes, doesnt need to kiss rings and make promises to raise money, and he stands up to an activist media.
Immigration is not going anywhere as a political issue, as much as some would like it to.
Hillary Clinton, former secretary of state and the best the Democratic Party has to offer to lead the country, is in a pinch. Either shes a complete fraud and liar or so completely out of touch with reality that someone should hide the car keys from her, even though she hasnt driven in 20 years.
There is no human being who, looking back on their life, hasnt had the thought, If I only knew then what I know now Its human nature. No matter how long ago then was, hindsight is always 20/20.
Whatever side of the Trump Show youre on, its a good time to be a Republican. Of course, with the first primary/caucus votes months away, that may not seem like much. But elections are, with rare exception, long slogs, not a flash mob. The fight for votes takes time, as does the fight to interest voters. On that front, the GOP is light years ahead of the Democrats.
On the positive side, what can you say about Donald Trump that he hasnt already said about himself?
Can we simultaneously love our children but betray their generation and generations yet born? Thats the question on page 1 of Mark R. Levins new masterwork Plunder And Deceit: Big Governments Exploitation Of Young People And The Future, and it is answered throughout the book.
Hillary Clinton. What can be said about Hillary Clinton that hasnt been said? Nothing, really.
H. L. Mencken famously said, Nobody ever went broke underestimating the intelligence of the American people. While it was true at the time, its even more accurate now.
All the Democratic Party presidential candidates have come under fire from the #BlackLivesMatter crowd for not addressing the rare occurrence of black people dying at the hands of police. They appear to have learned their lesson and are in full political cover mode when it comes to the death of Sandra Bland.
Who would have thought it? With all the issues facing the country and the world, the thing that got people the most upset so far this election season is a politician saying all lives matter. But thats where we find ourselves, and its incredibly sick.
President Obamas press conference on his Iran deal this week is a case study in just how far journalism has fallen as a profession.
Democrats have a strategy, a battle plan theyre willing to do anything to advance. Republicans have facts, statistics, history and no clue what to do with them.
When Kate Steinle was murdered by an illegal alien with a felony rap sheet long enough to make him a viable hip-hop star, the world barely noticed. Conservative blogs did.
Politicians are scrambling to gain favor with the ethnic group du jour: Hispanic voters.
As we celebrate our independence this weekend, we probably also should mourn it. No, we arent reverting back to British subjects, but we are becoming subjects again. There is a new hierarchy dominating much of our discourse and social interaction that creates a coveted status for victims. When once we declared our independence because of oppression, now being oppressed is a sought-after status.
I cant believe its come to this Im about to defend Donald Trump. Its not that I have anything against Donald Trump, but I dont have anything for him either.
Remember An Army Of One, that US Army recruiting ad slogan from a few years back? It not only was stupid, it was wrong.
Never ones to let a good crisis go to waste, Democrats made overtures on gun control. But after being unable to articulate a single proposed law that wouldve prevented the attack, they moved to plan B: the Confederate battle flag.
