  • Shame on the Pastors Who Anointed Hillary Clinton as President.

    Hillary Clinton is white. The pastors who declared her to be the next president of the United States, surrounded by the favor of the Lord, were black. Hillary Clinton is a woman. Most of the pastors were men. So, this is not a color issue and this is not a gender issue. This is a righteousness issue, and it is shameful for ministers of the gospel to bless a candidate who stands for a woman's "right" to shed innocent blood in the womb (through all 9 months of pregnancy), who aggressively supports the redefinition of marriage, and who calls for...

    An ideological construct that exploits envy and resentment for political advantage. Throughout this primary season, Hillary Clinton and self-proclaimed socialist Bernie Sanders have both been flogging the “crisis” of “income inequality,” which is “at the center of their campaigns,” according to CNN. Both have scourged the “greed” of the “1%,” called for higher taxes on the “rich,” and promised to expand and multiply government programs to rectify this injustice. Yet like other slogans progressives rely on, the idea of “income inequality” is an ideological construct, a statistical artifact that exploits envy and resentment for political advantage. The first problem with...

    Republicans set a new turnout record Tuesday in New Hampshire’s primary, attracting more than a quarter of a million voters to the polls and offering evidence that most of the energy in the 2016 presidential race continues to be on the GOP side. Democrats saw a strong turnout, but their two-person race couldn’t recapture the magic of the 2008 battle between Hillary Clinton and then-candidate Barack Obama — a race that presaged Mr. Obama’s eventual cruise to victory in November.

    Hillary Clinton loves black people. And black people love Hillary—or so it seems. Black politicians have lined up in droves to endorse her, eager to prove their loyalty to the Clintons in the hopes that their faithfulness will be remembered and rewarded. Black pastors are opening their church doors, and the Clintons are making themselves comfortably at home once again, engaging effortlessly in all the usual rituals associated with “courting the black vote,” a pursuit that typically begins and ends with Democratic politicians making black people feel liked and taken seriously. Doing something concrete to improve the conditions under which...

    Ouch Yesterday, a half hour before her defeat in New Hampshire, Hillary Clinton’s campaign released a three-page memo. It was designed to reassure the Hillary-faithful that, despite her impending loss, she was still a viable candidate. It had the opposite effect on MSNBC’s Andrea Mitchell: “Hillary Clinton had the Democratic Party establishment. She still has their endorsements, but he has out-raised her in January. He now will have a ton of money on those online contributions in February, and the Clinton team anticipated this with this three-page memo.”

The ‘Real Change’ people got from Obama back in 2008 is all but killing off their country.

    After the ridiculously close squeaker in the Iowa caucuses, the state's Democratic Party said it couldn't release the raw vote totals for Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders. That simply isn't how they do business, party officials insisted. Even after they audited the results this week, Iowa Democratic officials would say only that Clinton won 49.84 percent of the vote and Sanders 49.59 percent, reducing her margin slightly to a quarter of a point. Sanders has called for the raw vote totals to be released. The state party says that's not the way it conducts the caucuses. And the press has...

    Hillary Clinton's presidential campaign, I asked this question: "We know she was reckless in her handling of national security secrets, but she's assiduously protective of whatever she said in those speeches. Why?" The assumption is that rather than corroborating her implausibly revisionist characterizations of what she said to those elite bankers who paid her six-figures per speech (her typical fee), the hidden transcripts would reveal a very chummy posture toward her supposed mortal enemies, or whatever. Such a revelation would further undermine her credibility among the Democratic base's rabidly anti-Wall Street base, buttress one of Bernie Sanders' central lines of...

In 1990, on the eve of his election to the US House of Representatives as a socialist, Sanders named the kibbutz where he volunteered as Sha’ar HaAmakim, a...

    Perhaps President Obama's involvement is the reason that the FBI has not yet referred charges to the Justice Department in the Hillary Clinton email case.

The Department of State's refusal to release 18 emails exchanged between President Obama and Clinton through her unsecured home server at best creates a conflict of interest for Obama (as explained by Andrew McCarthy here) while at...

Already, top Republicans are calling for a special prosecutor to be brought in and evaluate the...

    The media coverage of Hillary Clinton is a lesson in paradox: She's the "most admired woman" in America, but no one is "excited" about her presidential campaign. She's inevitable, but she can't win an election. And even when she wins a debate, she still lost it. **SNIP** As much as I would like to see Bernie Sanders become the next Democratic nominee, it does us absolutely no favors to let Hillary hysteria win the day. The response from many among Sanders' white male voter base to Hillary Clinton's continued success in the polls is to refuse to vote for her...

    On January 20, 2017, President Bernie Sanders was sworn into office. The elderly Vermont politician, who had always made waves, refused to use a bible, instead taking his oath on a smudged copy of his own economic five-year plan. He also unilaterally modified the presidential oath from "preserve, protect and defend" to "enhance, enrich and humanize the Constitution of the United States". The unlikely candidacy of Bernie Sanders had shocked and divided a party and then a nation. President Sanders won the Democratic Party nomination by going far to the left and then, defying conventional wisdom, he moved even further...

    Median income would soar by more than $22,000. Nearly 26 million jobs would be created. The unemployment rate would fall to 3.8%. Those are just a few of the things that would happen if Bernie Sanders became president and his ambitious economic program were put into effect, according to an analysis given exclusively to CNNMoney. The first comprehensive look at the impact of all of Sanders' spending and tax proposals on the economy was done by Gerald Friedman, a University of Massachusetts Amherst economics professor. Friedman found that if Sanders became president -- and was able to push his plan...

    THE population of nonreligious Americans -- including atheists, agnostics and those who call themselves "nothing in particular" -- stands at an all-time high this election year. Americans who say religion is not important in their lives and who do not belong to a religious group, according to Pew Research Center, have risen in numbers from an estimated 21 million in 2008 to more than 36 million now. Despite the extraordinary swiftness and magnitude of this shift, our political campaigns are still conducted as if all potential voters were among the faithful. The presumption is that candidates have everything to gain...

    Sen. Bernie Sanders (I., Vt.), now a Democratic presidential candidate, was slow to take seriously reports in 2014 of the use of fake wait lists by Department of Veterans Affairs employees. As the New York Times reported, Sanders, then chairman of the Senate Committee on Veterans Affairs, initially indicated that the controversy was being fueled by a partisan effort to undermine the government agency.Sanders defended the VA amid reports, which first came to light in April 2014, that staffers at the Phoenix VA hospital used secret wait lists to conceal the long periods of time that veterans were delayed before...

    .. In the Muslim World? HBO's "Real Time" host Bill Maher wondered why the way women are treated in the Muslim world isn't more of a cause for feminists during an interview with author and activist Gloria Steinem on Friday. Maher asked, "Why aren't the way women are treated in the Muslim world considered more of a feminist cause?" Steinem responded that it is a feminist cause, and that women in the Muslim world consider their treatment a feminist cause. After she added, "All monotheism is a problem." Maher responded, "Yes, but not quite as much." Steinem then said that...

    The feminist writer Gloria Steinem apologized on Sunday for remarks about young women who support Bernie Sanders, not long after Hillary Clinton defended Madeleine Albright over her comment that there is "a special place in hell" for women who do not support Clinton. Steinem posted her apology to Facebook, writing that she "misspoke" on Friday when on a talk show she spoke about women who support Clinton's rival in the Democratic presidential race, Senator Bernie Sanders. Appearing on HBO's Real Time with Bill Maher, Steinem said women "get more activist as they grow older. And when you're younger, you think:...

    Hillary Clinton’s older feminist supporters have a message for young women who are not backing her candidacy: Shame on you. Women were expected to help power Mrs. Clinton to the Democratic nomination, but as she struggles to overcome a tough challenge from Senator Bernie Sanders, her support among them has been surprisingly shaky. Young women, in particular, have been drawn to the septuagenarian socialist from Vermont, and the dynamic has disappointed feminists who dreamed of Mrs. Clinton’s election as a capstone to the movement. Two feminist icons of Mrs. Clinton’s generation made their frustration known over the weekend, calling on...

    The first mistake that Gloria Steinem, the aging feminist icon, made was appearing on Bill Maher’s HBO show “Real Time.” The second mistake she made was offering an opinion as to why young women are flocking to Sen. Bernie Sanders, I-Vermont, the venerable avowed socialist. “When you’re young, you’re thinking, ‘Where are the boys? The boys are with Bernie,' she said."
