  • For women, Clinton is a bigger disappointment than Trump

    Since the explosion of #MeToo in October 2017, many of us have become jaded to the stock responses we can often expect from certain figures to stories of sexual harassment and abuse. At a rally in Pennsylvania last week, for example, President Trump once again mocked the movement, claiming he "wasn't allowed" to use certain expressions anymore, and laughing when a member of the crowd urged him to "do it anyway." It is galling in another way, however, to hear #MeToo undermined from an unexpected quarter -- as it was a few days ago by Trump's 2016 opponent, Hillary Clinton....

    Failed presidential candidate Hillary Clinton’s van crashed inside a parking garage prior to a fundraiser for Sen. Bob Menendez on Monday. Video obtained by NTK Network shows Clinton’s van pulling into a parking garage and crashing into something before Clinton and her top aide, Huma Abedin, exit the vehicle. The National Republican Senate Committee (NRSC) mocked the accident on Twitter: LIVE LOOK at @HillaryClinton trying to save @SenatorMenendez. (Spoiler alert: she crashes.) #NJSen pic.twitter.com/7poUpIYxl6 — The Senate Majority (@NRSC) October 16, 2018 VIDEO

    The Justice Department’s inspector general says a senior FBI official accepted two tickets to a sports event from a television news correspondent who regularly covered the bureau. The watchdog office said the official had not paid for the tickets. Initially, under oath, the official claimed to have done so, the watchdog said. The episode was briefly mentioned in a much broader report from last June about the FBI’s handling of the Hillary Clinton email investigation. …
  • Civility, Civil War, and the Future of Our Civilization

    American Greatness ^ | 13 Oct 2018 | Michael Walsh
    Hillary Clinton, the most vengeful, spiteful loser in the history of American electoral politics, has abandoned the Left’s always deceptive, now evanescent call for “civility.” She insists there can be no civility between the parties until the Democrats are restored to power—and, by extension, the Republicans are vanquished. “You cannot be civil with a political party that wants to destroy what you stand for, what you care about,” she told CNN’s Christiane Amanpour last week. “That’s why I believe, if we are fortunate enough to win back the House and/or the Senate, that’s when civility can start again. But until...
  • Rubio: Trump must respond with ‘more than words’ over Jamal Khashoggi

    Republican Sen. Marco Rubio said President Trump must respond with more than “just words” if Saudi Arabia is found to be behind the disappearance of journalist Jamal Khashoggi or it would undermine the United States’ reputation as a champion of human rights. “I’m glad the president didn’t tie his hands in terms of exactly what we are going to do. But it needs to be very strong and meaningful, it can’t be symbolic, it can’t just be words,” the Florida lawmaker said Sunday on CNN’s “State of the Union.” Trump has threatened “severe consequences” against Saudi Arabia but hasn’t gone...
  • Jamie Lee Curtis Promised 'A Stiletto in My Own Eye' if Hillary Clinton Lost; So...Now What?

    Halloween‘s carving-knife-wielding Jamie Lee Curtis remembers full well that she pledged to put a stiletto through her eye (like one of her other scream screen heroines) if Hillary Clinton wasn’t president come 2017. Now, in 2018, she says she’s doing something less dramatic, perhaps, but more impactful. “After watching Secretary Clinton do what she’s always done — get back on her feet, refuse to be silenced in the fight for what’s right — I realized it’s about the action, not the result. It’s the doing that was important in 2016,” Curtis, who campaigned for the former secretary of State, writes...

    Been working on a response for a Quora query, You are a devout Bible-fundamental Jesus believer. Or devout Catholic or Mormon. Why do you and your religious principles support and defend President Trump? Otherwise, why wouldn't you? I only worked on what the alternative to Trump would mean so far. Any suggestions for this? "Devout Bible-fundamental Jesus believer" best fits evangelicals, and even considering the alternative from that overall perspective should suffice for now, as illustrated by this (imperfect) analogy: You are at a port along with many other people, trying to continue on a long journey to get to...

    As Democrats campaign for the Nov. 6 midterm elections, they have plenty of legitimate criticisms to level at President Trump and Republicans who control the House and Senate. But Democrats were hurt in recent days by amazing and disgusting comments made by Hillary Clinton and former Attorney General Eric Holder. As a Democrat, I want my party to win as many seats as possible in the House and Senate and to capture as many governorships and other state offices as it can. But the Clinton and Holder remarks do not advance that effort – they hurt it. Former Secretary of...

    Hillary Clinton doesn't believe former President Bill Clinton's 1990s extramarital affair with then-White House intern Monica Lewinsky constituted an abuse of power. "No. No," Hillary Clinton said during an interview with "CBS Sunday Morning" when asked directly whether her husband took advantage of his position in 1995 to instigate sexual relations with Lewinsky when she was 22 years old.

    Several Democrats are saying former 2016 Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton is viewed as the “kiss of death” among Democratic candidates running in the 2018 midterm elections. The Democrats, who spoke on condition of anonymity, voiced concerns that Clinton’s presence would threaten the party’s chances at retaking the House and Senate in 2018, forcing Clinton to keep campaigning to a minimum and only appearing at low-key fundraisers. “Hillary Clinton is the kiss of death and she represents the part of the Democratic Party that led to historic losses and that elected Donald Trump president,” one leading Democratic strategist told the...
  • Let It Flow! #PantsuitNation is Now Caftan Country

    It is the opposite of the pantsuit: the free-flowing, form-swallowing caftan. Yet there was Hillary Clinton talking to Laurene Powell Jobs about President Trump, Russia and the midterm elections at OZY Fest in July, having not so much walked as wafted onstage in a baby-blue linen caftan dotted with white cloudlike shapes. The former Democratic nominee for president has repeatedly turned to these boxy, ankle-length robes since her 2016 loss, a self-actualized silhouette that seems the equivalent of the beard Al Gore grew after his own defeat in 2000.

    On Nov. 6, Americans will vote in one of the most important elections in our lifetime. Companies and their employees have a significant stake in the outcome. But too many people still say they don’t vote because they are too busy or their schedule won’t allow it.We’ve seen this before. In November 2016, about 40% of eligible voters did not cast a ballot. Some made a conscious decision not to go to the polls on Election Day. But many of these voters simply didn’t have a choice. Around half of states do not require employers to give employees paid leave...

    Hillary Clinton was once the face of the Democratic Party, a celebrity name who could draw thousands to rallies and was the all-but-certain first female president of the United States. Now, she is viewed as "the kiss of death" for candidates. As the midterm election campaigns enter the home stretch, the former secretary of state, first lady, senator, and 2016 Democratic nominee is almost completely absent from the campaign trail. Most Democrats are keen to keep it that way, fearing that her reappearance could cost them a golden opportunity of winning back control of Congress. Clinton and her husband, former...

    People who are in the know, have probably seen the following video and heard failed presidential candidate Hillary Clinton’s introduction of George Soros at the “Take Back America Conference” in June 2004. However, for those who have not, this might be an eye opener as not only does Clinton introduce Soros, but claims that we need men like him who are “fearless” and willing to “step up” when it counts. She is obviously indicating that he should get involved in the American political process, which he has done with billions of dollars.Here’s a brief documentary on Soros. Clinton’s comments begin...

    Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton's incendiary suggestion this week that liberals "cannot be civil" with Republicans any longer is unproductive and simply "ridiculous," a top Democratic senator said Wednesday. The stark repudiation of Clinton's comments by Sen. Heidi Heitkamp, D-N.D., a vulnerable red-state Democrat seeking re-election this year, comes as top Republicans have lined up in recent days to criticize Democrats' fiery rhetoric amid the nomination of Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court.

    Hillary Clinton offered one of her most direct rebukes of President Trump in months on Thursday after Trump accused her of colluding with Russia during the 2016 presidential election at his campaign rally in Pennsylvania Wednesday night. At the rally Wednesday night, Trump told an arena of supporters that there was "collusion between Hillary, the Democrats and Russia" during the 2016 election, despite offering no evidence for his claim. An intelligence community assessment in 2017 concluded that Russia's efforts were aimed at undermining the Clinton campaign. "There was a lot of collusion with them and Russia and lots of other...
