    When US President George HW Bush craved "a smoking gun" in 1992 to politically kneecap his White House challenger Bill Clinton, the British government delved into its files for damaging information. So, did the Bush camp solicit foreign interference to help him win an election - the allegation that has seen President Trump impeached? "A guy like that doesn't deserve to be president," President Bush told his sister about Clinton. He viewed the young Arkansas governor, who was the same age as Bush's eldest son, as a scoundrel and felt confident he could roll over him. But the president sorely...

    At a time of deep political division in the American electorate, a small group of counties across the nation has shown extraordinary political flexibility, voting for the winner in every presidential election since 1980. These 19 counties—well less than 1% of the nation’s total—have in the last 10 elections backed Republicans for the White House six times and Democrats four times. see

    The latest general election polling and presidential approval ratings numbers haven’t held a lot of good news for Donald Trump. Some surveys have him back down in the thirties and the head-to-head matchups against the Democratic frontrunners don’t have him being able to beat anyone but Elizabeth Warren. (That doesn’t mean he couldn’t still win in the electoral college, but the popular vote would be a trainwreck if these forecasts proved true.) So what can the President do about it?Over at National Review, Conrad Black has a suggestion. He points out that Trump has really come through on many...

    On Thursday, the Bible will go on display for the first time at the Abraham Lincoln Presidential Library and Museum in Springfield, Ill. The 16th president was given the Holy Book on June 16, 1864, during a rare wartime trip to Philadelphia raising money for wounded soldiers, where Lincoln donated 48 signed copies of the Emancipation Proclamation that were sold for fundraising. He was gifted the 18-pound, gilted Bible decorated with the words "faith," "hope," and "charity" by the hospital that treated wounded and ill soldiers during the Civil War. The cover of the Bible reads: “Presented to Abraham Lincoln,...

Former Vice President Joe Biden is moving closer to making an official announcement that he will be a candidate in 2020. If he runs, Biden will start at the top of the polls. The latest Emerson national poll has Biden and U.S. Senator Bernie Sanders of Vermont tied at 26%, leading the large field of candidates.

    Monday, January 21, 2019, California Senator Kamala Devi Harris announced her candidacy for the 2020 Presidential election. Outstanding questions pertaining to her candidacy include her eligibility for this office. The US Constitution specifies only a "natural born" US citizen may hold this post. Definitions of that term, according to the intent of the writers of the Constitution, as well as some later court rulings, indicate this means "born to two US citizen parents." The requirement was intended so that only someone with undivided loyalties to the US, someone not with possible divided loyalties to other nations, could assume the title...

    Sen. Kamala Harris (D-CA) is receiving dismal reviews from the usually-friendly liberal California media for her performance Thursday at the Senate Judiciary Committee during the Supreme Court confirmation hearings for Judge Brett Kavanaugh. Harris questioned Kavanaugh about whether he had ever had a conversation with someone at a law firm founded by President Donald Trump’s former lawyer about the investigation by Special Counsel Robert Mueller into Russian interference in the 2016 election. Kavanaugh seemed not to know what she was talking about, and Harris hinted that she may have had evidence to back up her line of questioning. But in...

    New Article: Is Kamala Harris Eligible to be President? Junior CA Senator May Run In 2020, by Sharon Rondeau, at The Post & Email (Aug. 19, 2018) — Given that California Sen. Kamala Harris’s Wikipedia biography states that she was born in Oakland, CA in 1964 to immigrant parents and speculation exists that she plans to run for president in 2020, Golden State citizen Gary Wilmott has been seeking information as to her citizenship status and whether or not she meets the constitutional requirement of “natural born Citizen.” The Wikipedia entry states that Harris’s mother, Dr. Shyamala G. Harris, was...

    This is a monthly posting of Twitter follower growth over the past month. Last Month's post here The purpose of these posts is to track Twitter follower growth for announced presidential candidates on a month over month basis. This is unscientific and is not intended to be taken that seriously. I also understand that some presidential candidates may inflate their twitter following by artificial means. But during the 2016 campaign, the growth trends did seem to correlate to the actual results. All during that campaign, the Twitter growth of Trump was massive compared to the other candidates. Only Hillary and...

    Here is President Donald Trump speaking at a huge rally in Tampa, Florida where he did his hilarious “acting Presidential” riff during his speech! The crowd loved it! Trump said, “It’s a lot easier to act Presidential than to do what I do.” He then did his imitation of what critics thinks it means to “act Presidential.” I think it is very “Presidential” to turn the nation’s Economy around; to rebuild America’s Military; to cut the taxes of hard-working Americans . . .

    How close America came to being officially pro-Moscow. How many ways have progressives worked with the Kremlin over the years? The examples are legion. When I was researching my boo Dupes, the biggest challenge was sifting through all the self-described “progressive” individuals or organizations to figure out which were closet communists cloaked as liberals, and whether they collaborated with Moscow. When Congress in 1961 published its major investigation of communist front-groups, titled, “Guide to Subversive Organizations and Publications,” one of the most popular title listings in the massive index was “Progressive.” Progressive here, progressive there, progressive everywhere. In fact, if...

    Sunday on MSNBC’s “Kasie DC,” Gov. John Kasich (R-OH) left the door open on another run for president. “[A]ll of my options are on the table,” Kasich said of a potential 2020 run. “I don’t know what I’m going to do. I have no clue. I don’t know what I’m going to do when I current job.” Kasich ran in 2016 for the Republican nod but came up short in that bid to eventual President Donald Trump.

    Eloquent at the podium, JFK could swear like a (which he was, of course) away from the microphone. When word leaked that the Air Force had spent $5000 to furnish a maternity suite for Jackie Kennedy at Otis Air Force Base, the president knew the expenditure would be used as a political football. "This is obviously a fu**-up," he fumed to a hapless general over the phone.
