Hillary Watch 2016: An Obama Minefield Awaits Hillary On The 2014 Campaign Trail
Our last edition of Hillary Watch 2016 posed the question: Will Hillary be forced to run for Bill’s third term rather than Obama’s third term? The answer to that question assumes the following: Obama’s overall job approval rating will continue downward.

Since our last edition of Hillary Watch 2016 posted in early May, a political tsunami has occurred in our nation’s capital. And to prove just how much that tsunami has altered the political landscape, remember it was only the Benghazi whistle blower hearings that were front and center at that time.

Is It Time For The Media To Group The Scandals Together and Call Them ‘Obamagate?’
Re-posted from PJ Media At this moment, no daily news cycle is complete without one hearing or reading the word “Watergate” in connection with the four Obama Administration scandals currently swirling around in various stages of unraveling.

A Historic News Week In Washington From An Eye Witness Perspective — Past, Present and Future
Last week my husband and I were back in our hometown of Washington D.C. where we both had business and events to attend. Normally I do not write about my personal travel adventures but this trip had a rather unique “historical time capsule” element that makes it worth recounting. My husband, a retired State Department Foreign Service officer is now an executive with an international | Read More »
Hillary Watch 2016: What Difference Does It Make? None, My Dear…None At All
A few days before the May 8th Benghazi whistleblower hearings I heard several liberals spinning Democrat talking points on cable news saying that these House hearings were really about Republicans trying to build roadblocks to Hillary Clinton’s yet to be announced White House run in 2016. Of course I was appalled (but not surprised) that Democrats were trying to link Republicans attempting to learn the truth about an | Read More »
Why Obama and the Liberal Media Need To Take a Good Look at the FBI Most Wanted Terrorist List
This week the FBI announced an addition to its Most Wanted Terrorist List, a female by the name of Joanne Chesimard. Upon hearing this news I thought it was a good time to check out the list.

After reading the list I strongly encourage President Obama to do the | Read More »
The Performance President vs. The Press Conference President
If an alien landed in Washington today and asked me to describe our leader, all I would have to do is show him video footage of two events just days apart. First would be video of our leader performing at the White House Correspondents’ Dinner (WHCD) on Saturday evening.

Two Supreme Ironies Of The Boston Terror Attacks
Last Tuesday, April 16th, in response to a piece I had written here on RedState on the day of the Boston attack, Politico reporter Dylan Byers tweeted the following: A right-wing blogger gambles on speculation: “Why It Is Obvious That The Boston Marathon Attack Is Islamic Terrorism” http://bit.ly/ZmGwpG Even though my “gamble” paid off, I will not be collecting any winnings.

The Most Despicable Headline About the Boston Marathon Bombing From Left-Leaning Media
Now along comes the influential, left leaning, Salon.com with this “most read” piece by David Sirota. The headline and subhead are enough to make me first recoil in horror and then weep for our nation. See if you do not have the same reaction. LET’S HOPE THE BOSTON MARATHON BOMBER IS A WHITE AMERICAN There is a double standard: White terrorists are dealt with as lone wolves, Islamists | Read More »
