  • Vanity - GOP Establishment jumps way too fast on Moore.

    Funny, isn't it, that within 24 hours of the sex offense accusations upon Judge Roy Moore, running for the USA Senate seat of Jeff Sessions....The Mitch McConnell, Mitt Romney, John MCain, gang of GOP Establishment low life were declaring Moore guilty as sin and were screaming for his removal from the ballot, worse then any Democrat was doing the same thing. Methinks this hints heavily of a setup by the GOP Establishment. Now....I am not sure whether Moore is guilty or not. That remains to be determined as time goes by. But...for this gang of rabid dogs, led by McCain,...

    Briana Draguca of Us magazine reported that Hillary spent 600 hours in 2016 having her beautician apply her makeup. (Discipline, Don. Don't write it. We all know what you want to say, but if you say it, you will regret it. Maybe not today, maybe not tomorrow, but soon and for the rest of your life.) I think Golda Meir may have put on lipstick once or twice. Golda Meir is the standard. Not Eleanor "I Married a President" Roosevelt. Not Angela Merkel. Not even Margaret Thatcher. From Us magazine: “I’ve never gotten used to how much effort it takes...
  • How an Army Ranger’s hellish training ‘turned him into a criminal’

    After pouring hot sauce into his eyes to keep himself awake no longer worked, Army Pfc. Alex Blum began snorting chewing tobacco. When that failed, he cut his earlobe with a knife. Still, after being pushed to strenuous physical activity for over 30 hours, he could barely keep his eyes open. The months he spent training to be an Army Ranger tormented him physically and psychologically, and left him changed as a person. They may even have turned him into a bank robber.

    During his Sunday night interview with Charlie Rose on 60 Minutes, former White House Chief Strategist Steve Bannon finally said out loud what many of us already knew: that Hillary Clinton is “not very bright.” This was actually my favorite part of the interview because nothing is healthier for our culture than the truth, most especially a truth no one dares to speak out loud. For 25 years, Madam Clinton has been in the public eye, and for 25 years we have been told time and again and again and again two whoppers: 1) Hillary is brilliant. 2) When you...
  • Hillary Clinton Live and Unplugged

    Join Hillary Clinton in a conversation about What Happened, and what’s next for all of us. This is her most personal memoir yet. She has a lot to say in the book, and even more to discuss in her conversation with you and what’s on your mind. What you’ll see may not be what you'd expect from a public figure. Her story is raw, detailed, and surprisingly funny. It’s a story about resilience, how to get back up after a loss, and how we can all look ahead. It’s about Hillary's experience as a woman in politics -- she lets...

    Sorry I have to say this. But FR has become nearly unusable these days. You used to have a feeling that within 30 seconds to a minute, your page would be resolved and loaded. But no more. I don't know how many times lately, I have hit refresh or picked a new thread only to wait and wait and wait and then I give up and go to another site. The powers that be recommend limiting your window options to twenty. My reply is, if that's the problem, the just taking the option away and making it twenty should be...
  • Clinton's Tin Ear

    Hillary Clinton may be the most tone-deaf politician in modern history. Repeatedly over the course of a 41-year career as a political wife, candidate and appointee, she's said and done things that alienated voters. Who can forget her acerbic comments during the 1992 presidential race? "I suppose I could have stayed home and baked cookies and had teas," she told one reporter on the campaign trail in describing her decision to continue her legal career while first lady of Arkansas. And then there was her response in defending her husband from allegations of extramarital affairs: "You know, I'm not sitting...

    Obviously, Hillary Clinton prefers fantasy to the harsh political reality of her disastrous campaign It has been six months since the political world was rocked to its core with the upset election of Donald Trump as President. One person who has not gotten over Trump’s victory is his opponent, Hillary Clinton. Of course, in the days before the election, almost every pollster and commentator predicted a Clinton victory. She was overconfident and believed the media spin. Incredibly, she was outperformed by a political novice, who won 306 electoral votes in 31 states, an unexpected landslide.

    Safely out of the woods: Blame-game = Scapegoat game Hillary lost for one reason, and one reason alone: Most people in most states didn’t want her to be President. Democrats like to point to the meaningless popular vote, but the bottom line is Hillary didn’t take enough states to claim the brass ring. We’ve gone over the reasons why this happened dozens of times, so we won’t rehash them here. Just know that the short answer is this: people didn’t want her in office. That seems obvious to anyone who was paying attention in 2015 and 2016, but don’t try...

    Full title.........................Donna Brazile Claims Emails She ‘Allegedly’ Sent CNN Questions to Clinton Team Don’t Tell ‘Complete Story’.................Former Democratic National Committee interim chairwoman Donna Brazile maintains that the Wikileaks emails showing her relaying CNN questions ahead of debates to Hillary Clinton during the Democratic primary do not "tell a complete story." In an interview with Politico published Monday, Brazile, a former CNN contributor, acknowledged the emails "allegedly" show her passing the information to the Clinton campaign. But she says the emails do not explain the full story. "You know, I think there's always a lot of confusion when something is put...

    So it's time to ban them from social media, even if there's nothing fake about them. Since the outcome of the election was not what the left wanted, something must have gone wrong. This cannot happen. And whatever it might have been that caused insolent Americans to not vote as the left wished, this horrid thing must be found, must be isolated and must be killed. Of course, another approach would be, say, next time nominate a better candidate, offer better ideas and do a better job of persuading people to vote for you? Nah! Ban something! That’s the left’s...

    (CNN)It's the most deceptive sign in politics. Every four years, a presidential candidate gazes out over a vast crowd and convinces themselves the White House is there for the taking. In 2016, the general election candidate drawing the biggest and loudest crowds is Donald Trump. "We got to Oklahoma, we have 25,000 people. We had 21,000 people in Dallas, we had 35,000 people in Mobile, Alabama. We get these massive crowds," Trump said in Florida earlier this month. "Look, if she had 500 people I would be surprised," he added, poking fun at Hillary Clinton's more intimate events.During the primaries,...

    (CNN)Hillary Clinton's campaign said the Democratic presidential candidate will travel to Louisiana to view the devastation caused by recent flooding "at a time when the presence of a political campaign will not disrupt the response" -- a shot at her rival Donald Trump. Trump, Pence tour flood damage in Baton Rouge Clinton's announcement comes after a high-profile visit last week by Trump and his running-mate Mike Pence, and follows the decision by the Obama administration to schedule a trip there this Tuesday. "This month's floods in Louisiana are a crisis that demand a national response," Clinton said in the statement....

    Dear Trump campaign, here's a freebie. You're welcome Sometimes, you come across a statement so utterly baffling, that you genuinely don’t know what to say about it. Today, such a nugget comes to us via Hillary Clinton. She doesn’t want to hear any excuses from people, because - as she claims - she’s “a no excuse” kind of person. Where to begin? Should I assemble a list of the excuses she’s offered for her failures, ethics violations, and criminal behavior over the course of her 30+ year career? Nope. That would, literally, take days.

    The CEO of one security consulting firm that handles all manner of security threats for the federal governments, private companies and heads of state concurs. “While Pagliano does, in fact, have some IT experience, it’s a far cry from anything near qualifying for a position of that level of responsibility,” Global Executive Management CEO Jamie Williamson told TheDC. “His resume is sparse for actual qualifying work experience and, it appears, that working for the Clinton campaign is probably the sole qualification.”

    The Australian government is tired of having unemployed people say they cannot take a job because it might interfere with their golf plans or dreams of becoming an actor. The government said it plans to tighten the rules on who qualifies for unemployment benefits to encourage a growing number of jobless - including some with creative excuses to stay off the job - to go to work. "Australia's income support system is there as a safety net for people who genuinely cannot find a job - not as an option for those who simply refuse to work," Australian Minister for...
