    Ok, folks, I've had enough of Ted Cruz and a handful of others trying to fundraise on the back of the Internet handover issue.First,this is not a surprise nor something Obama cooked up in the dead of night. The expiration of the existing arrangement has been known forliteral yearsand the timing of same has been known for the same amount of time. If the US Congress wanted to interveneit has had years to do soand hasintentionally not done so. So to Ted Cruz and others (Jim DeMint anyone?) who is now claiming "emergency", go perform an anatomically-impossible act; if you...

    Besides Gary Johnson, he means, right? Doesn’t he? Or was Carl Bernstein right that Weld, a Massachusetts centrist, would end up defecting from the ticket and trying to help Clinton down the stretch if he got spooked that a Trump presidency is a real possibility? He’s much more complimentary of Johnson in the clip below than the headline above would suggest, as you’ll see (the key line about Hillary comes near the very end), but it’s odd nonetheless for a candidate in one party to say that no one’s more qualified than a candidate from another. It’s not the only...

Three of them are with Barack Hussein Obama and one with his wife, Moochelle (My Belle) Obama. The Moochelle O'Bell (My Belle) Obama ad apparently is the most relevant considering that Bill and Hillary Clinton's marriage is now an issue. So the title of this ad is, "Can't Run Your House."

    American Thinker ^ | September 30, 2016 | John Dietrich
    The Obama administration's policy in the Middle East appears to be designed to remove secular tyrants and replace them with more religiously oriented regimes. Thus, Gaddafi ("We came, we saw, he died." Ha ha ha.) and Mubarak were targeted. Bashar al Assad is the current target. This policy has been marked by monumental incompetence, mendacity, and confusion. Nothing about it should be accepted without a healthy dose of skepticism, including what follows. The Telegraph of the U.K. has a video of U.S. commandos fleeing a town under a barrage of insults ("Crusaders! Infidels! Dogs! Get out!") from the Free Syrian...

    Who won the first debate on September 26? Perhaps a better question might be which candidate performed worse. Trump had several opportunities to score better in the debate than he did, and Hillary was her usual plastic phony self, but she avoided any real mistakes. Give her a modest edge in this first presidential debate, but give Republicans a clear edge to do better and better in the next three. Mike Pence is smart, pleasant, likeable, and experienced. There is every reason to believe he will do better against Tim Kaine than Trump did against Hillary. In fact, Pence will...

    Patricia McCarthy: Too soon to knowAnyone who read Tom Clancy's novel, Debt of Honor, published in 1994, has most likely wondered why it was not made into a film long ago. It is a gripping novel, written long before 9/11. The book tells the story of a Japanese man whose parents were killed at the end of WWII. He plots his deranged revenge by becoming a pilot and ultimately flying a jetliner into the Capitol building during the State of the Union address. In that book, his main character Jack Ryan, from his books Hunt for Red October, Clear and...

One telling episode among the countless: Asked by a voter if she was for or against the Keystone XL pipeline from Canada, she replied, "If it's undecided when I become president, I will answer your question." As we've asked here before, will Hillary Clinton ever get over her consuming fear of straight talk?

    In a halfway honest front-page article Thursday, the Washington Post posed the following question in the headline, Enabler or family defender? How Hillary Clinton responded to husbands accusers. I say halfway because reporter Shawn Boburg knew the answer to his question. Hillary provided it herself during a crucial 60 Minutes interview to which Boburg alluded more than once. That interview took place on January 26, 1992, the day America first met Hillary Clinton. Earlier that same month, Arkansas state employee Gennifer Flowers confessed to a tabloid that she and Bill Clinton had had a 12-year affair. In a Hail Mary...

    CBS’ Friday night staple Hawaii Five-0 is currently in its seventh season and is still delivering strong ratings for the network. Considering that the show is a long-running remake of the 1960s drama of the same name, it’s no wonder that CBS would replicate that winning formula. The latest addition to the network’s Friday night schedule does just that. MacGyver, the new remake starring Lucas Till in the lead role, successfully reboots the concept that made the original so watchable.In the original show (which aired from 1985-1992), Richard Dean Anderson played the American secret agent. The agent was known more...

Representative Gutierrez claimed, among other things, that López Rivera “was not convicted of committing a violent crime, rather he was convicted of seditious conspiracy – espousing the belief that the Puerto Rican people are capable of, entitled to, and have an inalienable right to self-determination.” The...

    Republican Donald Trump infuriates Hillary Clinton and the Democrats when he calls himself the law-and-order candidate. He especially infuriates them when he zeros in on Chicago, political home of President Barack Obama and birthplace of Clinton, where murders and shootings have spiked in a wave of carnage and blood. Trump plays Nixon to Clinton's Humphrey, and with Chicago becoming the poster boy for violence nationally -- and with televised anti-police riots in Charlotte, N.C., and elsewhere -- he'll continue to push the law-and-order theme. "We have a situation where we have our inner cities -- African-Americans, Hispanics are living in...

    Rather than striking immunity deals with virtually every person who had intimate knowledge of Hillary Clinton's illegal private server and emails, the Justice Department would have saved everyone some time by offering Clinton protection instead. FBI Director James Comey, who testified in front of two congressional committees this week, still maintains that he was unable to recommend that the DOJ charge Clinton with mishandling classified documents because of insufficient evidence proving "intent" -- although the actions themselves are irrefutably illegal. Well, how exactly did he anticipate gathering this proof, when the DOJ had proactively shielded the five people tasked with...

    Consider. While U.S. elites were denouncing Donald Trump as unfit to serve for having compared Miss Universe 1996 to "Miss Piggy" of "The Muppets," the World Trade Organization was validating the principal plank of his platform. America's allies are cheating and robbing her blind on trade. According to the WTO, Britain, France, Spain, Germany and the EU pumped $22 billion in illegal subsidies into Airbus to swindle Boeing out of the sale of 375 commercial jets. Subsidies to the A320 caused lost sales of 271 Boeing 737s, writes journalist Alan Boyle. Subsidies for planes in the twin-aisle market cost the...

    I realize my biases probably keep me from assessing debates as objectively as some, but I still must dissent a bit from the conventional wisdom on Monday's Trump-Clinton contest. First, as anyone who has consistently read my column knows, I was an ardent supporter of Ted Cruz's and was often critical of Donald Trump, particularly about his debate performances. But Trump won the Republican nomination, and like many others, I have had to regroup and shift my allegiances.

    "Congress' overwhelming rebuke of President Barack Obama on a bill allowing 9/11 victims to sue the government of Saudi Arabia -- and the bitter finger-pointing that followed -- was a fitting coda to the dysfunctional relationship between the Obama White House and Capitol Hill." But it was the headline -- which she probably did not write -- that really completed the picture: "Congress disses Obama one last time." That word, "disses," is just too perfect. For eight years the press has treated Obama like the protagonist in some stage play, personalizing his policy struggles as a heroic effort of one...

    One would think there is protocol in place for when a presidential nominee falls ill, but surprisingly there is no official guideline. In fact, until the Twenty-Fifth Amendment was passed after the Wilson presidency, there was no clear definition of what being unable to fulfill the duties of President meant. With Hillary Clintons recent health issues, we have to consider the very real possibility that our next president might fall ill, which poses the question: What happens next? For that answer we must look to history, and the most obvious example is Woodrow Wilson. President Wilson suffered a massive stroke...

    Forgive me if Im confused, but there seems to be a huge disconnect between what our would-be elite overlords are telling us about women and what they actually think. Apparently coherence and consistency are sexist, and probably also racist and homophobic, making the pooh-bahs of the establishment and their media gimps the most tolerant people in the world. So, Hillary has some serious sads because Trump interrupted her in the debates. Thats sexist you know, because women are both just as good and tough and stuff as men and, simultaneously, little delicate flowers that we must treat like fine china....

    In the first presidential debate Donald Trump achieved Job One: convincing independents that he is being mischaracterized and caricatured, that he really is a normal guy, just exuberant but essentially normal, under control, disciplined. To the point that he is a plausible choice. I believe that at the suggestion of his handlers he drank water whenever he felt the urge to interrupt or insult or felt himself losing it. (The irony, of course, is that he mocked Marco Rubio for drinking lots of water during debates. But, as with All Things Trump, the alternative is Hillary. So drink away!) It...

    Bikini and burkini season is over here, but with the new school year, Frances battle over national identity has erupted on a new front: its history curriculum. School curriculums have long been a part of culture wars, including in the United States, where there have been tussles over slavery and evolution. But in France, where the state sets school programs nationwide, the countrys understanding of its past and how it uses education to shape young citizens has become a hot-button issue in a fraught election season. Changes to how Joan of Arc and other touchstone historical...
  • Howard Dean Doubles Down on Trump 'Using Coke?';

    During Monday night's presidential debate, former DNC chairman and 2004 presidential candidate Howard Dean tweeted: "Notice Trump sniffing all the time. Coke user?" Even the tabloid site TMZ described Dean's tweet as a "low blow." Unbowed, Dean doubled down at MSNBC on Tuesday, to the point where a clearly uncomfortable Kate Snow tried to maneuver him into backing away a bit. He wouldn't, which is fine with Chris Cillizza of the Washington Post, who told the network's Peter Alexander on Wednesday that "we should probably be talking more about" Dean’s speculation. At the Washington Free Beacon Tuesday afternoon, David Rutz reported that...

    BEGIN TRANSCRIPT RUSH: I mentioned in the previous hour Politico story: "Clinton Campaign in Panic Mode over Black Voter Support in Florida." This is interesting. I mean, the conventional wisdom from the Drive-By side is if Hillary cannot get close to replicating the Obama turnout, particularly in African-Americans, that she is in deep, deep doo-doo. Now, Hillary, of course, counters this by going out to black events and trying to sound like she's African-American. (impression) "I ain't no ways t'aaaird!" When, in fact, she can barely stand up, she's so damn tired. "I ain't no ways t'air... (coughing) t'aired!" It's...

    BEGIN TRANSCRIPT RUSH: "Clinton Feels the Pressure." Why? Even after a strong debate, Clinton has a huge staff advantage over Trump. The Electoral College is tilted in her favor. She's running to succeed Obama, who's a popular president. She's running against Trump who ought to be the easiest candidate for president ever to beat. And despite all that, she finds herself in an excruciatingly tight race. "Why aren't I 50 points ahead?" Apparently she is feeling the pressure. The next headline from Politico: "Clinton Campaign in 'Panic Mode' Over Florida Black Voters." This story is from today. It's a post-debate...

    BEGIN TRANSCRIPT RUSH: If you establishment types really, really want to understand how Trump supporters look at this -- if you really do -- let me remind you of something. By the way, I'm proud of how often I'm seeing this pop up in columns and opinion pieces. It is something I have been reminding people over the past month. You guys in the Drive-Bys in analyzing Hillary's debate, you're judging rhetoric. You're judging the spoken word. That's how you define intelligence (muttering), "It's intellectualspeak. You communicate (muttering) so you're really, really smart, really... Obama does intellectualspeak. It's a specific...

    Shouldn’t we be talking about Hillary Clinton’s startling proclamation during Monday night’s debate that every American has “implicit bias” on race relations? When asked by moderator Lester Holt (the only time he asked a direct and exclusive question of the Democratic Party’s nominee) “Do you believe that police are implicitly biased against black people?” Clinton didn’t just throw cops under the racist bus, she threw us all under: Lester, I think implicit bias is a problem for everyone. Not just police. I think unfortunately too many of us in our great country, um, jump to conclusions about each other. And...

    In his 2008 campaign for president, candidate Obama said that the debt run up by President Bush was irresponsible and unpatriotic and that Bush ran up the debt all by his lonesome (short video). Despite presiding over far more debt in his first term than Bush did in two, President Obama was re-elected by young folks. It would seem that debt doesnt really register with millennials. Although millennials may not be interested in debt, debt is interested in them. On Oct. 1, 2016 the federal government will begin its next fiscal year, FY 2017. Fiscal 2017 will mark ten years...

    Long ago in 1976, Bill Clinton was elected Arkansas attorney general, launching his political career and that of his ambitious wife. One year earlier, The Eagles released their hit song Lyin Eyes. Little did Don Henley and Glenn Frey know that their popular song and Hillary Clinton would have a synchronous moment 40 years later during her presidential campaign. The lyrics, You cant hide your lyin eyes at one level, fits Mrs. Clintons life story and political history quite accurately and at another level provides a glimpse into her current health and suitability to serve as president. From the early...
