  • Neither Clinton Nor Trump [#NeverTrump]

    Weekly Standard ^ | May 16, 2016 | William Kristol
    I have always voted for the Republican presidential candidate. From Richard Nixon and Gerald Ford to Ronald Reagan (twice) and George H. W. Bush (twice) and Bob Dole, from George W. Bush (twice) to John McCain and Mitt Romney—I've checked the box next to those eight names on all 11 occasions I've had the chance. About half the time, I've voted for someone else in the primary. But even in those cases I never hesitated before supporting the Republican nominee in the general election.

  • Clinton Email Scandal: Hillarys Legal Troubles Mount As Her Nomination Nears

    05/05/2016 10:29:29 AM PDT · by detective · 42 replies
    Despite being dogged by Bernie Sanders late into the primary season, Hillary Clinton is by all accounts virtually guaranteed her partys nomination. But even as she gets closer to that goal, she still cant shake the email scandal that has dogged her since March 2015. If anything, her legal situation is more perilous than ever. Item 1: Earlier this week, the Department of Justice apparently admitted that the investigation into the email scandal was a law enforcement proceeding, not as Clinton has maintained a review of classification procedures.

Kerry told reporters Tuesday if Syria doesnt begin the process of removing Assad by Aug. 1, there will be serious consequences, The Associated Press reports. If Assad does not adhere to this, there will clearly be repercussions, Kerry said. One of them may be the total destruction of the cease-fire and then go back to war. I dont think Russia wants that. I dont think Assad is going to benefit from that. There may...

Donald Trump, a man utterly unfit for the position by temperament, values and policy preferences, will be the Republican nominee for president. He will run against Hillary Clinton, who is easily the lesser evil but is trailed by clouds of scandal and misconduct and whose party's left wing poses its own threats to liberties of speech, religion, enterprise and association. It is time for a third candidate, and probably for a third party.

Sanders and his campaign have indicated that the senator, who was still listed as an independent on his Senate website as early as this month, will continue to be a Democrat in future elections.

A Clinton-McAuliffe pairing would be the most friendly ever and a long road from the usual ticket coalition like the 1980 Reagan-Bush ticket. McAuliffe can serve only one-term as governor and will be a third-year lame duck when the Democratic nominee picks a veep next summer. And being a one-term governor isn't a hurdle to higher office.

And not really. While some segments of the South are undeniably conservative, Dixie is also home to a large and reliably Democratic cohort African Americans.

    My unscientific poll of Maryland voters in next weeks Democratic presidential primary gives Bernie Sanders a 100 percent lead in early returns. I just voted for Bernie Sanders today, said Thomas Frank, author of several books, including 2004s best-seller Whats the Matter with Kansas?, and this years Listen, Liberal: or, Whatever Happened to the Party of the People? I advance voted in Maryland. I have my little I Voted sticker on my shirt, Frank told me in an interview this week. Frank spoke with Sanders back in 2014, when he was deciding whether to run for president and whether to...

    Former Secretary of State Hillary Clintons effort to close out the Democratic race may be going awry, as a new poll shows shes in danger of losing California to Sen. Bernie Sanders. According to a new Fox News poll conducted April 18-21, Clinton has the support of 48 percent of likely Democratic primary voters, while Sanders is right behind with 46 percent. Thats the closest margin yet between the two in the state, which awards more delegates to the Democratic National Convention than any other. Clinton holds a substantial delegate lead over Sanders and remains heavily favored to win the...

    Sanders, he says, is a "false prophet" who could be as dangerous as Donald Trump and Ted Cruz.With Donald Trump putting Mexico at the center of the Republican presidential conversation, the country's former president, Vicente Fox, has gone hard at the GOP front-runner, saying, "He reminds me of Hitler." But Fox, who served as president from 2000 to 2006, has some comparisons for Bernie Sanders that are not much more flattering. "In Latin America, we have a century of experience of suffering from messianic, populist leaders that have broken our economies, that have brought poverty into all of Latin America,"...

    FBI Director James Comey says there's no timetable for the FBI to complete its investigation into Hillary Clinton's use of a private email server when she was secretary of state. Comey told an Aspen Security Forum audience on Thursday that the FBI does not set timetables on any of its investigations. The comments echo assertions that he and Attorney General Loretta Lynch have made in recent months.

    Four hundred protesters associated with the Democracy Spring movement were arrested in Washington, DC last week after demonstrators descended upon the US Capitol. They spoke out against money in politics, the Koch brothers, and the Citizens United ruling that overturned key provisions of campaign finance law. The demonstration was clearly a statement against corporate influence in politics. The protesters aren't entirely wrong. Yes, political influence is unequally distributed because money begets power and vice versa. A guy who changes oil for a living doesn't have as much pull as a guy who owns an oil company. But what can be...

    Blunders on Israel abound in the Bernie Sanders camp. On April 14, Sanders suspended his new national Jewish outreach communicator, Ms. Simone Zimmerman, after just two days on the job. Her sacking followed discovery of her calling Benjamin Netanyahu an arrogant, deceptive, cynical, manipulative a[**]hole, accusing him of sanctioning the murder of over 2,000 people, and presiding over a brutal military occupation of the West Bank (a canard I debunk here). In an April 1 interview with the NY Daily News, Mr. Sanders stated that Israel killed over 10,000 Gazans in the 2014 conflict between Israel and Hamas. He later...

    Just when you think once-prestigious Harvard could fall further from grace, Harvard students hurled anti-Semitic epithets at Israel's former Foreign Minister Tzipi Livni during her recent talk at the University. Last Thursday, Harvard Law School hosted a panel discussion with guest speakers Dennis Ross and former Foreign Minister Tzipi Livni. During a question and answer session a president of a student organization mocked the Israeli leader, asking her, How is it that you are so smelly? When his question drew stunned silence, he clarified his "question." A question about the odor of Ms. Tzipi Livni, shes very smelly, and I...

    In 8 out of 10 national polls, Hillary Clintons favorability ratings are negative by 15 points or more. According to recent CBS and NBS/WSJ polls, Clinton holds negative favorability ratings by 23 and 24 point margins, respectively. A progressive said to get things done wont be able to win the White House with such negative national ratings. In contrast, Bernie Sanders is the only leading candidate with positive favorability ratings, and this has nothing to do with Clinton being more vetted. Bernie doesnt need private servers and speaks to millions of people in open forums; Clinton is the antithesis of...

    NEW BRUNSWICK, N.J. As Donald Trump looks poised for victory in New York, he continues to lead with Republican voters on this side of the Hudson as well, according to the latest Rutgers-Eagleton Poll. Breaking the 50-percent mark in New Jersey for the first time since announcing his candidacy last summer, Trump was named by 52 percent of registered Republican voters as their first choice if they had to cast their primary vote today. Ohio Gov. John Kasich has ascended to a distant second in the Garden State, with 24 percent. Texas Sen. Ted Cruz comes in third at...
