Will Jerry Brown Challenge Hillary?
  30 Jul 2014     12:07 am

He lost to Jimmy Carter in 1976 and 16 years later to Bill Clinton in 1992. Now, 24 years later, in 2016, he may run again. Jerry Brown may seem like ancient history, but he is only nine years Hillary’s senior and may well challenge her for the Democratic Party nomination.

Coasting to an easy re-election victory in the nation’s largest state, he likely is avoiding talk of running so as not to interfere with his first task — that of piling up a huge margin in California. But once his …

Perry in Obama’s Face
  23 Jul 2014     12:07 am

By sending 1,000 National Guardsmen to the Texas/Mexico border, Governor Rick Perry is stepping up to challenge the president and fill the vacuum left by Barack Obama’s lack of leadership in a way other possible presidential candidates cannot match.

His boldness and courage come as a welcome relief for the legions of Republicans and Independents who ask, with frustration, “Will nobody stand up to this president?” Legislators can only talk. Governors can act.
Perry’s more cautious advisors likely warned the governor of the dangers he faces. What if the Guardsmen kill someone? …

Elizabeth Warren Could Beat Hillary
  16 Jul 2014     12:07 am

The contrast between the two women couldn’t be sharper.
Hillary is the ultimate political insider, taking $20 million from Wall Street, including $5 million from Goldman Sachs. In two recent speeches to Goldman — at $200,000 a pop — Hillary spoke about why big banks shouldn’t be blamed for the financial crisis. “We’re all in this together,” she reportedly told them.

Hillary’s political campaigns have been financed by Wall Street. Her family foundation is underwritten by banks, corporations and foreign governments. Even as secretary of state, she aggressively lobbied for major U.S. …

Events Closing In On Obama
  10 Jul 2014     12:01 am

The worst day in Barack Obama’s life may have been the day he won a second term. Increasingly, he is the captive of events, which his own policies have set in motion, that are now out of control and coming back to haunt him. The last two and a half years of his second term seem fated to be the worst ending to a presidency since those of Presidents Johnson and Nixon, dominated by Vietnam protests and Watergate, respectively.

 
The process will cook his legacy and destroy his party’s chances to …

The Clintons’ Goldman Sachs Gold Mine
  3 Jul 2014     12:01 am

The never-ending Clinton money grab is more than $150 million deep. One of their most lucrative benefactors is Wall Street powerhouse Goldman Sachs.

Since leaving the White House, Bill and Hillary have collected more than $3 million from the banking goliath in campaign contributions, speaking fees and donations to their private foundation. In addition, Goldman has underwritten some of Hillary’s pet projects, including a partnership with the State Department on a women’s project conceived by Hillary. There’s more — Goldman also made commitments in the millions to the Clintons favorite programs …

Child Migration Changes The Issue
  25 Jun 2014     12:07 am

The political fallout caused by the massive migration of 90,000 children this year (52,000 so far) over the Mexican border completely recasts the immigration debate. No longer must Republicans hypothesize or may Democrat deny that amnesty catalyzes illegal immigration. The children of Central America have resolved that question by descending on our border, demanding admission and anticipating the right to stay.

Nor can the administration maintain a pretense of tightening border security in return for legalization of those already here. Obama has foreclosed that option and squandered any credibility by repeatedly …

Hillary Clinton Is Not Like Other Rich People — Get It?!
  24 Jun 2014     12:03 am

There’s only one word to describe Hillary Clinton’s inane defense of her wealth. She’s delusional. First, she said she was dead broke in a year that the Clintons made $16 million. Now, she just told a UK newspaper, The Guardian, that she’s not like “the truly well off.” She’s different.

Why? Because she and her husband paid ordinary income taxes — not capital gains — on their more than $150 million raked in since they left the White House. She’s not like other people whose names she won’t mention. (Would those …

Hillary’s Sense Of Entitlement On Full Display In Interviews
  18 Jun 2014     12:07 am

Why did Hillary Clinton, one of America’s most seasoned political figures, fail so spectacularly in her recent television interviews, generating negative stories with each daily installment?

One reason is that she became accustomed to a foreign press corps that didn’t cover either domestic politics or personal criticisms of her. So in her first series of challenging interviews with America’s top journalists, who asked tough personal and political questions, the normally sophisticated and articulate Hillary seemed both unseasoned and shockingly unready for the big time.
Her biggest blunder was one she’s committed before: …

Cantor’s Defeat Shows Impact Of Obama’s Cynical Immigration Strategy
  12 Jun 2014     12:03 am

Divide and conquer sums up President Obama’s political strategy on immigration: Stop deportations. It will inflame conservatives and appease Latinos. The more conservatives are angered, the less chance genuine reform will have in the House. And the more Latinos are appeased by the end of deportations, the more they will be drawn to the Democrats, all the more because of their frustrations in not passing immigration reform.

It’s as skillful a move as any ricochet shot in a pool hall.
By widening the gap between Latinos and conservatives — through a deliberate …

Dead Broke? Hillary’s Up to Her Old Games
  11 Jun 2014     12:07 am

Hillary Clinton likes to present herself as an everywoman, facing the same challenges that bedevil all families, living in sync with their trials and tribulations, overcoming adversity as we all try to do. The latest iteration of her wish to downplay her wealth so as to be just plain folks was her bald assertions to Diane Sawyer that she and Bill were “dead broke” and “in debt” when she left the White House, struggling to “you know, piece together the resources for mortgages for houses, Chelsea’s education, you know, it …

Obama’s Real Goal: Close Gitmo
  6 Jun 2014     12:03 am

Why did President Obama release five of the most dangerous prisoners he had in Guantanamo in exchange for a man who is, at best, a deserter and, at worst, a traitor? Why did he take the risk of bypassing Congress? Didn’t he realize the fallout that would hit him?

I believe the answer is that Obama’s real goal was to release the five terrorists from Gitmo to demonstrate to the Taliban that he could. Swapping them for Bowe Bergdahl was just window dressing to make the deal look like we got …

Hillary’s New Benghazi Cover-Up
  4 Jun 2014     12:06 am

When Hillary Clinton sat down to pen “Hard Choices,” her memoir that comes out next week, she had a simple explanation for her repeated insistence that the Benghazi raid was motivated by a “hateful video” rather than a terrorist attack. All she had to say was that we relied on the best intelligence available at the time.

True, the CIA talking points did not mention a video and, true, Mike Morrell, the former deputy director of the CIA, told Congress that he was surprised to hear U.N. Ambassador Susan Rice, while …

What Winning Senate Achieves
  28 May 2014     12:07 am

Why, some Republicans are asking, should we focus on winning the Senate? What will it achieve as long as Barack Obama is still president? We won’t get 67 votes to override his vetoes or even 60 votes to overcome filibusters. Why bother?

Here’s why winning the Senate, while not a complete answer, is still worth working hard:
–If Republicans control the Senate, they can block confirmation of judges who will allow Obama’s power overreach. You can bet Majority Leader Harry Reid will confirm every judicial nomination in sight before relinquishing Senate control …

Hillary Opposed Iran Sanctions But Now Claims Credit
  21 May 2014     12:07 am

The former secretary of state has characterized her place in history as akin to a runner in a relay race, taking the baton, running her laps as best she can, and then handing it off to John Kerry, her successor.

But the actual record indicates that, rather than a relay, Hillary Clinton’s role in Iranian sanctions might better by compared to a high hurdles race — with Hillary erecting the hurdles.
In her full-throated defense of her tenure as secretary of state, delivered to the American Jewish Committee last week, Hillary touted …

Did Hillary OK Taps on Diplomats?
  14 May 2014     12:07 am

A new book by Glenn Greenwald — Edward Snowden’s journalistic confessor — charges that U.N. Ambassador Susan Rice asked the NSA to spy on U.N. diplomats from countries casting the swing votes on the Security Council on whether to toughen sanctions on Iran.

Question: Did Hillary approve the surveillance? Did she know about it?
We need to know if the person who wants to be the next president approved and allowed the NSA to spy on U.N. diplomats.
In Greenwald’s book, “No Place to Hide: Edward Snowden, the NSA and the U.S. Surveillance …

Did Hillary Send Talking Points to Rhodes?
  7 May 2014     12:07 am

How did Obama administration aide Ben Rhodes get the language for the talking points he prepared for Susan Rice condemning the anti-Muslim Internet video that purportedly triggered “spontaneous” demonstrations leading to the attack on Benghazi?

Interestingly enough, the words he sent out about the video were identical to those used by Hillary Clinton two days earlier. And we know that both of them knew then that there was no demonstration. So why did they put out this fake story, and how did they coordinate their fabricated message?
Let’s rule out a coincidence. …

To Get GOP Nod, You First Must Lose
  30 Apr 2014     12:07 am

Of the last eight people who have won the Republican nomination for president, six ran for the office and lost before eventually getting their party’s designation. To win as a Republican, it would seem you have to first go through losing.
Romney, McCain, Dole, Bush-41, Reagan, and Nixon all lost before they won. Only Bush-43 and Ford won without first losing. (And Ford inherited the nomination and almost blew it.)

Not so in the Democratic Party. Of the last seven nominees, only Al Gore first lost before he eventually got the nomination …

Obama’s 8M Guinea Pigs
  23 Apr 2014     12:07 am

Obamacare has signed up 8 million people. Democrats are breathing a sign of relief, but their trials have only just begun.
Now a large swath of America will experience first hand the shortages of doctors, the limited access to hospitals, the high deductibles, the large copays, the significant coinsurance requirements, and the long delays in care that will accompany Obamacare’s implementation. They will see, first hand, what government-run medicine is like. And the rest of the electorate will have front row seat from which to watch the debacle.

Send US Troops to Ukraine
  22 Apr 2014     12:03 am

Do our treaty commitments mean anything? Are they worth the paper upon which they are written? In 1994, President Clinton, British Prime Minister Major, Russian President Yeltsin, and Ukrainian President Kuchma signed The Budapest Memorandum pledging themselves and their nations to “respect the independence and sovereignty and the existing borders of Ukraine.”

The treaty was signed as part of a successful effort to persuade Ukraine to relinquish its nuclear stockpile, armaments stationed there when the Soviet Union broke up. In return for the joint guarantee, Ukraine promised to give up its …

Packing the Popular Vote
  16 Apr 2014     12:07 am

A plan, now stealthily making its way through state legislatures with astonishing speed, would junk the Electoral College and award the presidency to the winner of the popular vote.

The plan involves an interstate compact where states would commit to select electors pledged to vote for the national popular vote winner regardless of how their own state voted. When enough states pass this law — sufficient to cast 270 votes, a majority of the Electoral College, it will take effect.
The Electoral College will become a vestigial anachronism.
So far, nine states and …
