    Chris Christie’s BIG opportunity: Demand that Hillary answer questions, like he did at “Bridgegate” press conference

    Chris Christie’s nascent WH bid is struggling. He’s way down in the polls, and facing an uphill battle to gain traction. However, the recent revelations about Hillary’s DIY email system have given the governor a superb opportunity to thrust himself back into the national debate, and in the process gain favor with Republicans of all stripes. Anyone remember “Bridgegate?” For days it was the obsession | Read More »

    Liz Warren is running the perfect campaign for the Democrat nomination

    Very soon a lot of Democrats will come to their senses, and ponder the scenario of their putative nominee dealing with scandals over her emails, financial shenanigans at the Clinton foundation, having to testify before the House Special committee on Benghazi……and, as if it possibly couldn’t get any worse, there’s the strong possibility that her husband, who’d be back inside the WH if Hillary won, | Read More »

    Will Biden’s epitaph read “Better here than Uruguay, er…Guatemala”

    Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s speech this coming Tuesday to a joint session of Congress will be seen by tens of millions around the world. The image of Bibi at the podium, with the Speaker of the House, and the Vice President, as the presiding officer of the Senate, seated behind him, will dominate the media. Except…..not. Because Biden won’t be there. He’ll be in | Read More »

    What’s wrong with this picture? We give Algeria $100 million+ each year in foreign aid, and Algeria sends $500k to the Clinton foundation.

    Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) 80% hasn’t hesitated to go after the Clintons, and the burgeoning scandal involving contributions by foreign governments to the Clinton foundation should give him a lot more ammunition, especially if he frames the issue in the right way. The story so far concerns the impropriety/illegality of the Clinton foundation receiving contributions from foreign governments while she was SecState, | Read More »

    Please support the DGA (Democratic Governors Association)

    This is the political silly season. The final postmortems from the last election have been written, and everyone is busy speculating about 2016. Curious piece in today’s National Journal.  The National Governors Association is meeting in DC, and Montana Governor Steve Bullock, head of the DGA has been busy promoting Joe Manchin and Sen. Heidi Heitkamp (D-ND) 20% as really good candidates | Read More »

    Obama is ultimately going to dare the Republicans to impeach him. Will they?

    The United States is a constitutional republic. It is not a democracy. This is the genius, and the legacy, of the Founding Fathers. The Constitution is the  bedrock upon which stands the Rule of Law. So, if you’re Barack Obama, committed to “fundamentally transforming” the country…what better way to do so than to strike at the foundation of our nation: the Constitution. The other two | Read More »

    Obama is successfully degrading, and will ultimately destroy, Hillary’s candidacy

    As the Middle East continues to spiral downward into total chaos, it is becoming more and more apparent that the 2016 election will focus on foreign affairs, international relations, and our ongoing wars against AlQeda/ISIS/ISIL/whatever in the region. And it will soon become more obvious that Obama’s failed policies have effectively doomed Hillary’s chance at winning the White House. Indeed, I believe that the reason | Read More »

    MUST READ: “Lucy and Ethel take Foggy Bottom!” (with a bonus video link)

    Given the latest inane comments from Marie Harf, Ian Tuttle has a good piece over at National Review, dissecting Harf and Psaki…Lucy and Ethel Take Foggy Bottom. But it’s the comments..over 1,000 at this point, that are really worth the read…some are hilarious, to wit: “Psaki and Harf are the only two under the impression that Legally Blonde was a documentary” “In a room with | Read More »

    The imminent demise of the Democrat party…and why

    I’ve always taken a dim view (translation: not worth reading) of books that  confidently proclaimed an absolute. From Kevin Phillips’ 1969 “The Emerging Republican Majority,” to John Judis’  2002 “The Emerging Democrat Majority,” they cleverly manipulated statistics and assumed trends not in evidence. Judas, after this past November’s election, has now all but recanted his thesis, saying that the Democrats’ continuing, and increasing, loss of support | Read More »

    Why the idea of a Super Tuesday GOP primary is really dumb. Hint: Open primaries

    You’d think that after what happened in the Mississippi Senate race last November, conservatives would have learned a thing or two. Or not. However, it seems that southern Republicans are eager to step out of the frying pan and into the fire. There’s growing support among certain southern Republicans for a joint primary in the southern states…a March 1, 2016 super Tuesday..what some are already | Read More »
