    Billary will flail around using the same Democrat playbook as always and hurl baseless charges through their media megaphone like they did with Romney Back in the days of the peace dividend, “Read my lips,” and “It’s the economy stupid” we were told we got two for the price of one. And we sure did. One president to chase skirts in the Oval Office and one harridan to persecute his victims: Billary, the corrupt couple from Whitewater. Remember back in the Sleazy Nineties when the Clinton ‘interlewed’ between George I and George II lowered the standards for what was acceptable...

    As Secretary of State, Hillary Clinton never used a password to protect her computer emails, and she was clueless about how regular emails work on a conventional computer, according to a deposition of a foreign service officer at the State Department. ------------------------------------------------ In a two-hour deposition with the conservative legal watchdog group Judicial Watch last week, Lewis Lukens also said he offered to set up a “stand-alone” computer for Clinton to check her personal email account, only to be told that she “does not know how to use a computer to do email.” ------------------------------------------------ “The crux of the issue was...

    If the Trump/Sanders debate proceeds as planned in California, you’re about to witness one of the most important moments of a 2016 general election that hasn’t even begun yet. To say such a debate would be an unmitigated disaster for Hillary Clinton would be the understatement of the century. Let’s explore why. First of all, Hillary Clinton outright rejected a debate request from Bernie Sanders ahead of the June 7th California primary. Given Sanders’ recent momentum, as well as her need to persuade a significant number of his supporters to back her in November; such a denial was not only...

    A federal court ruling Tuesday declaring Ohio GOP lawmakers' voting restrictions unconstitutional could easily wind up before the U.S. Supreme Court — and generate a 4-4 split decision, a voting-rights expert says. [ ] Judge Michael H. Watson of U.S. District Court in Columbus said the Republican-dominated Ohio legislature violated the federal constitution and Voting Rights Act in 2014 when it reduced the state's early voting period from 35 to 28 days. The move also eliminated the so-called Golden Week in which eligible residents could register to vote and cast an absentee ballot at the same time. [ ] The...

    The conventional wisdom is that Hillary Clinton will crush Donald Trump in the November election. As I detailed previously, a generic Democratic candidate begins the general election with a huge Electoral College advantage based on how states have voted in the last six presidential elections. The count in September 2015 stood at 257 electoral votes for the Democrat and 206 electoral votes for the Republican, with five battleground states worth 75 electoral votes. Where is the race today as we near the end of the primary process? Based on current polling and primary results, Clinton likely would win the presidency...

The inspector general's 78-page analysis, a copy of which was obtained by The Associated Press, cites "longstanding, systemic weaknesses" related to the agency's communications. These started before Clinton's appointment as secretary of state, but her failures were singled out as more serious. Despite guidelines to the contrary and never seeking approval, Clinton used mobile devices to conduct official business on her personal email account and private server. She never sought approval from senior...

More than a dozen of the party’s most reliable individual contributors and wealthy families indicated that they would not give...

Trump’ hire of his leading opponent might seem quixotic—but since Clinton’s strongest voting bloc is unmarried women working outside the home—it looks like an obvious attempt by The Donald to snare some of that vote for himself. And sure enough, Clinton has already tweeted this brilliant pro-Trump pitch (preserved on a screenshot by Dilbert creator Scott Adams) that emphasizes Trump’s commitment to an important feminist issue: equal pay for equal work. The tweet says, ‘“You’re gonna make the...

    Marco Rubio fired off an extended series of tweets late Monday night, alternating between sharp jabs and light jokes, aimed at a pair of Washington Post reports about his plans for his political future and his alleged "hate" for the Senate, a word the Florida senator disputes. Criticizing the use of anonymous sources, Rubio, who has 1.36 million followers, took the opportunity to make an enigmatic joke about his political future, winking at his former rival Donald Trump. "As for future in politics, well it's nearly impossible for someone not in office to ever become a successful candidate for President....

    Bernie Sanders is on a roll. He's won the last two Democratic primaries and stands a good chance Tuesday of adding Oregon and perhaps Kentucky to his pile of victories. Yet Hillary Clinton is likely to continue her seemingly unstoppable march to the party's presidential nomination. How can that be? It's not a conspiracy, as some angry Sanders backers suggest, a result of dark magic or a wrinkle in the time-space continuum. Rather, it's the rules that Democrats play by -- rules that now work to Clinton's advantage, even as they thwarted her candidacy eight years ago, when she lost...

    As a businessman-turned-reality show personality, Donald Trump is a foreign policy novice—but he’s a foreign policy novice who could be our next Commander-in-Chief. So as he solidifies his standing as his party’s frontrunner for president, including sweeping all five Republican primaries last night, it’s time to start considering what it would mean if Trump—a candidate who admits he gets his military advice from “the shows” and learns about foreign policy from “various newspapers”—became Commander-in-Chief. Here are seven of his “best” (read: worst) ideas for how to keep our country safe.

    “When are they going to get those f—ing ree-tards out of here?!” Those are said to be the infamous words of Hillary Clinton – also known as Arkansas’ “Mother of the Year” in 1984 – when Hillary reportedly grew frustrated that handicapped children weren’t collecting their Easter eggs quickly enough on the lawn of the Arkansas governor’s mansion. “[T]he children were having a wonderful time. But they were having a v-e-r-y, v-e-r-y, v-e-r-y s-l-o-w time of finding and picking up the Easter eggs,” wrote Dolly Kyle – a childhood sweetheart of Bill Clinton who had a 33-year relationship with him...
  • The return of John Boehner

    05/16/2016 9:19:41 AM PDT · by ChicagoConservative27 · 16 replies
    John Boehner is back. The former House speaker will spend late July and all of August on a cross-country bus trip raising money and campaigning for House Republicans, according to multiple sources familiar with his plans. The trip — on Boehner’s bus, dubbed “Freedom One” — will begin after the Republican National Convention in Cleveland and end Labor Day weekend. Boehner has done these trips for years, but it is especially significant that the former speaker — who left Congress after being targeted by House conservatives — is spending his summer campaigning less than a year after leaving office.

    In response to Cameron calling Trump's suggestions that Muslims should be barred from the US "divisive, stupid, and wrong", Trump warned that maybe the two just wouldn't get along then. "Well number one I'm not stupid ok, I can tell you that right now. Just the opposite. Number two in terms of divisive, I don't think I'm a divisive person, I'm a unifier. Unlike our president now I'm a unifier... It looks like we're not going to have a good relationship. Who knows, I hope to have a good relationship with him but it sounds like he's not willing to...
