    A vice president is never more important than at the instant of being chosen, because the choice tells you so much about the person who does the picking. When the doors are closed, George W. Bush doesn't have to listen to advice or stroke Republican egos; he can say what he pleases. John McCain? asked a friend. Gimme a break, said Bush. Ohio Congressman John Kasich, Bush argued, isn't ready for the job. Pro-choice Pennsylvanian Tom Ridge might cost him too many pro-life votes in states where a point or two will make the difference. And it has been clear...

    You are sure to recall that during the presidential election, there was a lot of talk about Hillary Clinton and the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform. This is a committee that is designed to go after government officials that have broken the law. Notably, Trey Gowdy and Jason Chaffetz reside on this board, and are well-known for their vicious work during the Clinton case. The case? Hillary put the entire nation in jeopardy with her decision to use a private email server, delete thousands and thousands of emails despite being told not to, and involved the State Department...

    WASHINGTON – Using the war in Libya and the conflict in Syria as examples, former Secretary of State Colin Powell cautioned against U.S.-backed regime changes. Touching upon the debate surrounding U.S. immigration from the Middle East, Powell said Muslims should not be “singled out” as threats. “You better be careful because – and I have considerable experience with this – just taking out the regime doesn’t necessarily fix the problem. ......

    This campaign season never fails to disappoint, not even for a day. Despite incredibly strong denials to the contrary, last weekend it was proved for all the world to see that there is something wrong with Hillary Clinton. The campaign officially calls it pneumonia, but the public record clearly shows “something else going on.” Another doozy came later in the week, when Colin Powell’s hacked emails were released. He had some choice words for Trump, Hillary, and especially Bill Clinton. What did we learn? Finally, the Filipino President Rodrigo Duterte ordered that U.S. military advisers leave the Philippines. The following...

    Former Secretary of State Colin Powell complained to a friend that Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton “screws up” everything she touches thanks to overwhelming personal hubris, a newly-leaked email reveals.

Leeds remarked that Clinton’s email scandal was getting “worse every day” and that she “may be in serious trouble.” Powell responded saying Clinton’s problems were her own fault. “Everything HRC touches she kind of screws...

Bush warned “Hillary’s mafia” about using him as a fall guy in the email scandal hanging over the Democratic presidential nominee.

In the emails, which were obtained by The Intercept, Powell wrote to at least one confidant about his repeated warning to Clinton not to blame him for the scandal. “I told her staff three times not to try that gambit. I had to throw a mini tantrum at a Hampton’s party to get their attention. She keeps tripping into these ‘character’ minefields,”...

Lee Fang, an investigative journalist working for The Intercept, tweeted out screenshots of an email chain between Jeffrey Leeds and Colin Powell discussing Hillary Clinton and her disdain for Barack Obama. Note that this email chain was sent around only a year a half ago, in March of 2015. Jeff indicates that other members of the state department were using Hillary's...
