    Vanity | 10-23-2016 | Me: Vanity
    I apologize in advance for the vanity. IMHO, I think The Donald should start talking about the statutes of limitation on the various crimes Hillary and her henchmen have been committing, and how he will clean out the entire Justice Department and go after them all. His recent brilliant "Rigged!" rallying cry has resonated and is converting voters, along with causing liberal head explosions that can be seen from space. "They will be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law, and the guilty will be punished to the max. No More Corruption!" The MSM will have no choice but...

  • Crooked Hillary's Forgotten Scandal

    In the third presidential debate, in reference to the issue of illegal immigration, Hillary Clinton claimed that "I don't want to rip families apart." But as First Lady, she was responsible for a law that has done exactly that. Most recent media attention regarding Hillary Clinton's many corrupt activities, even from conservative sources, has focused on Hillary's criminal misconduct related to her illegal deletion of government emails, her corrupt Clinton Foundation "charity", and the massive corruption revealed in emails published by WikiLeaks. But there is another scandal that is arguably worse than any of the other ones - as the...

He told a group in Ohio, “Well, I tell you what it helps in Ohio, that we got Democrats in charge of the machines…” He went on to say that: “Whenever people are in power, they have this tendency to try to tilt things in their direction. That’s why we’ve got to have, I believe, a voting rights division in the Justice...

    Sponsors say Proposition 57, the Public Safety and Rehabilitation Act of 2016, will save taxpayers money by making nonviolent felons eligible for parole earlier and improve fairness by having judges, not prosecutors, decide whether juveniles are tried as adults. Critics call it a "get out of jail early" card. I would add that it's the sort of dishonest measure that becomes commonplace under unaccountable one-party rule. State pols gamed the system to get it on the ballot. The title promises public safety when it could result in the early release of repeat offenders. Yet California voters are likely to...

    One of Hillary Clinton's claims was that having a private email server was a more convenient option than having a State Department email address. However, as some newly-released emails reveal, perhaps this may have been less-than-truthful. An email from Clinton to Huma Abedin complains about how none of her emails are going through, and Abedin replies that perhaps she should let the State Department actually know about the email so that things would stop being redirected to the spam folder. Now, I may not be Secretary of State, but how in the world is that possibly more "convenient" than a...

Heather Samuelson was one of the Clinton aides who sifted through the private email server used during Clinton's tenure at the State Department, and helped decide which would be designated as personal messages and which were work-related. That's when the potential Chinese hacks may have taken place, because she used two laptops made by Lenovo, a company with ties to the Chinese...

    Fed Chair Janet Yellen's interest in running a "high-pressure economy" threatens to add to an increasingly divisive climate at the U.S. central bank. In remarks last week that jarred the market, Yellen ruminated about the benefits of letting inflation run a little hotter than normal while allowing the unemployment rate to drop below the point that historically would trigger Fed tightening action. To many observers, the comments were a clearly dovish signal that she favors a lower-for-longer approach when it comes to interest rates. But that kind of attitude could exacerbate tensions among Federal Open Market Committee members, in particular...
