  • No, Hillary Clinton Shouldn’t Run For President Again

    The Syracuse New Times ^ | May 22, 2017 | Luke Parsnow
    Hillary Clinton has spent the better part of the last decade-and-a-half running for president. It’s been just six months after her stunning loss, but there are already many speculating that after two failed attempts, the former first lady may believe that the third time’s the charm. Matt Latimer, contributing editor at Politico, wrote an audacious column in February saying she would certainly run again. He listed several concrete arguments regarding her recent actions as signals, like scaling back the involvement of the controversial Clinton Foundation, denying rumors that she would run for mayor of New York City, and a new...

    Real Clear Politics ^ | May 23, 2017 | Paul Bledsoe
    Washington can hardly keep up with the unprecedented pace at which Donald Trump’s presidency is cascading out of control. Ironically, the appointment last week of Robert Mueller as special counsel to investigate Russia’s involvement in the 2016 presidential election may slow White House hemorrhaging, taking pressure off GOP congressional leaders and their weak investigations and temporarily shoring up support for Trump on Capitol Hill. For Democrats and independents concerned about the safety and well-being of the country, however, the priority must be getting Trump out of the White House as quickly as possible. He is simply too great a threat...

    Daily Caller ^ | May 21 2017 | Luke Rosiak
    Congressional technology aides are baffled that data-theft allegations against four former House IT workers — who were banned from the congressional network — have largely been ignored, and they fear the integrity of sensitive high-level information. Imran Awan and three relatives were colleagues until police banned them from computer networks at the House of Representatives after suspicion the brothers accessed congressional computers without permission. Five Capitol Hill technology aides told The Daily Caller News Foundation’s Investigative Group that members of Congress have displayed an inexplicable and intense loyalty towards the suspects who police say victimized them. The baffled aides wonder...

    Noah Dyer, a Democratic candidate for governor in Arizona, boasts that "my extensive sexual experiences equip me to understand the issues most important to the citizens of this state. For adults, and some children, sex is the most rewarding activity they will ever know. Few others understand this as well as I do. That will be the key to my ascension to the throne of governor." Dyer laid out his qualifications arguing that "my frequent casual sex, sex with married women, sex with multiple partners at once, sexting, and video-taping my sexual encounters demonstrate an unprecedented transparency among those of...

    The brother of slain Democratic National Committee staffer Seth Rich wrote a letter on Tuesday to the executive producer of Sean Hannity's Fox News show pleading with him to find "decency and kindness" in his heart and stop spreading an unproven conspiracy theory about the unsolved murder. "As the family, we would hope to be the first people to learn about any such evidence and reasons for Seth's death," he added. "It is a travesty that you would prompt false conspiracy theories and other people's agendas rather than work with the family to learn the truth." Rich was shot to...

There’s Bernie Sanders, who denies that he’s a Democrat, Elizabeth Warren, who might not even survive reelection in her own state, Keith Ellison, an Islamist who keeps lying about his past with Farrakhan, Howard Dean, currently denying the existence of the First Amendment, and Maxine Waters. You know you’re in trouble when your party is being represented on cable news by Maxine Waters. Desperate lefties had tried to...

    President Trump is not fiendishly hated by the outside world, but only fiendishly hated by the Democrats and Mainstream media in his own country “F*** Donald Trump!” is where the Democrat Party has allowed itself to be buried. ‘“F*** Donald Trump!” Chant Leader’, outgoing California Democratic Party Chairman John Burton was not nearly so loud or vehement when he settled a $10 million sexual harassment lawsuit filed by Kathleen Driscoll, then the executive director of his charitable foundation for homeless children in 2008. Longer-lived and more haunting than any curse the Democrats could come up with, are the words left...

    Authored by Mike Krieger via Liberty Blitzkrieg blog, Last week, I published two posts on cyber security firm CrowdStrike after becoming aware of inaccuracies in one of its key reports used to bolster the claim that operatives of the Russian government had hacked into the DNC. This is extremely important since the DNC hired CrowdStrike to look into its hack, and at the same time denied FBI access to its servers. Before reading any further, you should read last week’s articles if you missed them the first time. Credibility of Cyber Firm that Claimed Russia Hacked the DNC Comes Under Serious Question What...

    RUSH: Last week — late last week, Thursday and Friday — there appears in various media stories about how one, two, and then three prominent Democrats expressed the need for the Democrat Party to start walking back all this talk of impeachment. First, it was just one, and then another one. It ended up being three people. I don’t remember their names right off the bat; doesn’t matter. And it caught my attention, obviously. Why walk back this notion of impeachment? And there were two reasons. One reason is, there isn’t a crime here. Despite all of this irresponsible reporting,...

    The Huffington Post ^ | May 22, 2017 | Matt Fuller and Sam Stein
    With President Donald Trump’s approval rating sinking and congressional Republicans pushing a deeply unpopular agenda, Democrats have a real chance to take back the House. But that opportunity is being complicated by one word that is coming up with increasing regularity on the midterm campaign trail: “impeachment.” That’s the conclusion House Democratic leaders have reached through internal polling, and it’s one that top Republicans, including allies of the Trump administration, shared in conversations with HuffPost. “In focus groups in swing districts and in Georgia-06 (where a special election is being held this June) ― where we do think Trump is...

    California Governor Jerry Brown (D) lashed out at opponents of recent state tax increases calling them "freeloaders." "I've had it with then," Brown complained. "They think that they have a champion in Trump whose 'siren song' of self-reliance as the way to prosperity is leading so many away from their responsibility to the human collective. The reluctance to pay taxes is selfish. It is everyone's obligation to carry their fair share of the burden. It is the government task to determine what that share is for each individual. Once that determination is made refusal to cooperate is anti-social." The State's...

    American Thinker ^ | 05/22/2017 | Thomas Lifson
    OK, gang, time to move along – other stuff is more important.  That's the logical strategy for the Democratic Party leadership to signal the base that the Russia conspiracy narrative has served its purpose and belongs in the Memory Hole.  You don't want to go farther out on the limb of an unfounded charge dreamed up to explain away the failure of Hillary and her campaign henchpeople to pull off the expected victory. But such a judicious approach is not the métier of rabble-rouser Thomas Perez, the party chairman.  Into the breach leaped Representative Keith Ellison, the consolation prize-holder of the invented title...

    Townhall.com ^ | May 22, 2020 | Arthur Schaper
    Until the American Civil War, the political party of slavery, secession, segregation, and now socialism, referred to itself as “The Democracy.” After the slow burning of DNC leaks, Crooked Hillary’s corruption, the dripping frauds of the DNC elections, and recently the chaos of the now-concluded California Democratic Party convention, it’s clear that there is nothing democratic about the Democratic Party. I commiserate with my California liberal, progressive, Democratic friends. They really believe that that more government, more socialism is the answer to our nation’s ills—but at least they believe in a fair, just process. But fairness and big government don’t...

    DB Daily Update ^ | 5.22.2017 | David Blackmon
    Cussing their way back into power, two middle fingers at a time.: At the increasingly profane Democrat Party’s annual convention in California, the 84 year-old outgoing state party chairman, some guy named John Burton, closed out the proceedings by sticking both middle fingers in the air and leading gleeful party members in the chant of “F*** Donald Trump! F*** Donald Trump!” The fake national news media largely ignored the incident. Try to imagine the fake media outrage that would ensue if a state GOP party chair led a GOP convention in a chant of “F*** Barack Obama!”, or “F*** Hillary...

    "Never let them get control of your mind." I've used that phrase my whole life. It means think critically, don't let emotion cloud your intellect. The media today, doesn't subscribe to that philosophy. They don't control their own minds. Donald Trump does. Mainstream media laughed off his candidacy. There was a belief he wasn't serious. YouTube videos abound with entertainers, pundits and politicians saying, "Donald Trump will never become president." The majority of pollsters, operating in a "used to be" reality used old methods to canvass a new world. "Popular culture," unaware they are neither popular, nor culture, made it...

    The Center for American Progress, the Democratic establishment’s premier think tank, gathered luminaries and potential 2020 candidates this week for what it billed as an “ideas conference.” Their goal was to focus “not what could have been,” as CAP Vice President Winnie Stachelberg said, but on “new, fresh, bold, provocative ideas that can move us forward.” ADVERTISING In the basement of Georgetown’s Four Seasons Hotel, the posh watering hole for Washington lobbyists, lawyers, and visiting wealth, the conference was at turns a debate about the future, and a demonstration of the difficulty in talking about a positive agenda when Trump...

    A new Politico report out Friday discusses the wide-open Democratic field for the 2020 presidential race. Reporter Gabriel Debenedetti indicates Sen. Chris Murphy (D-Conn.) is “in the mix” (emphasis ours): At least a dozen senators are widely thought to be in the mix — including Vermont’s Bernie Sanders, Massachusetts’ Elizabeth Warren, New Jersey’s Cory Booker, California’s Kamala Harris, Ohio’s Sherrod Brown, Oregon’s Jeff Merkley, New York’s Kirsten Gillibrand, Connecticut’s Chris Murphy, and both Minnesotans, Amy Klobuchar and Al Franken. But the depleted bench of Democratic governors is also stocked with possible White House hopefuls, expanding the list of credible presidential...

    For months since the election the only topic on the mainstream media (MSM) news outlets has been that President Trump somehow stole the election from Hillary Clinton by working in collusion with Russia. This fallacious argument is played around the clock by the MSM and discussed repeatedly ad nauseam by Democrats every chance they get. On Wednesday the headline of the Drudge Report was that Democrats felt they were finally at the place where they could poll test their efforts to impeach President Trump. Democrats can’t do anything without a poll. The Drudge Report’s headline linked to a report from...
