EXCLUSIVE: The Hillary Diaries- September 2015 Edition

    This writer is finding it more difficult to get his hands on these diaries.  No sooner are they published, Clinton takes measures to ensure their privacy.  I shall not be deterred!  I’ve resorted to tactics that some may find “illegal.”  Regardless, here is September’s edition: Sept 4- Dear diary: So much has happened since my last entry.  State released more embarrassing classified exonerating e-mails.  I penned an | Read More »

    With Friends Like These: George Soros- Part 1

    The Left is fond of demonizing the Koch brothers at every juncture and portraying Republican candidates of all stripes as being subservient to them.  But if any political party or any group of politicians is subservient to anyone, a discussion of George Soros is absolutely necessary.  The Left laments the nexus and web of organizations that define the Koch brothers and their political advocacy, but | Read More »

    2016 Gubernatorial Races: September News

    There was a lot of action on the 2016 gubernatorial front, so let’s get to it: DELAWARE: At large Congressman Rep. John Carney (D-DE) 15% will run for the term-limited office of Jack Markell.  Carney barely lost to Markell in the 2008 Democratic primary.  He may get a primary challenge from New Castle County GOP chief John Gordon.  That county has the | Read More »

    2016 US Senate Happenings: September in Review

    The Battle for the House in 2016: September News

    Labor day is a thing of the distant past and the kids are back at school.  September must be in the rear view mirror, so its time to recap some House race developments from the past month.

    The Week That Was

    Much has happened over the last week and this is just some general commentary on current events. Scott Walker Quits the Race:  My choice for the nomination was the second to go.  The reason I supported Walker was because I believed he was the best choice to bring together the various factions of the Republican Party and present a united front against Clinton in 2016. | Read More »

    The October Supreme Court Docket

    October 5th is the first Monday in October and the start of the 2015 Supreme Court term.  There is the potential for some big cases with the two biggest so far being the legality of public worker union agency shop arrangements and who counts in the census for redistricting purposes.  This latter case could have a profound impact on the balance of power at all | Read More »

    The GOP Field Odds After Debate #2

    After the second debate, every candidate claimed they achieved what they set out to do.  Flash polls taken immediately after the poll gave the victory to either Trump or Fiorina which is interesting since they had perhaps the best dust up although Fiorina clearly had the more memorable lines.  Flash polls mean very little; they are initial reactions to what happened and have no bearing | Read More »

    With Friends Like These: John Podesta- Part 2

    In the previous entry, I described Podesta’s rise to power within the Democratic Party and the Clinton inner circle.  Being a good politician, he straddled the line of loyalty between Hillary and Barack Obama.  Obama and Clinton policies and tactics are classic textbook versions of his Center for American Progress (CAP) policies.  This is a group conceived as a think tank that quickly evolved into | Read More »

    Keeping the Eye on the Prize

    The stakes in 2016 are too high for this country to endure another four years of a Democrat in the White House.  Like most here, I have my favorite candidate who I believe would be the best choice for the GOP.  All candidates have some warts, but all be would more palatable than Hillary Clinton (well, maybe not all). As we head towards more debates, | Read More »
