The Stale and Scripted Hillary


“He loves beauty contests, supporting them and hanging around them,” said Hillary Clinton late in Monday’s debate, as she desperately retailed every cheap shot advisers had drilled into her. The “he” in question wasn’t her womanizing husband in the front row but Donald Trump. Hillary’s resort to smears and her reliance on a painfully stale […]

Eugenic Hillary’s Pitch to the Disabled


The Washington Post calls Hillary Clinton’s pitch to the disabled “unusual,” describing it as part of her bid to appear more positive and compassionate. Not mentioned in the article is the stance that makes her outreach to the handicapped particularly unusual: she never wanted them born. Recall the position she took during the debate in […]

Hillary’s Submission to Militant Muslims


In her infamous lecture about “smart power” in 2014, Hillary Clinton said that American leaders must “understand” and “empathize” with Islamic terrorists. She has the empathy down but not the understanding. She still can’t grasp the obvious theological motivation of the Islamic terrorists, which comes not from what they read in American newspapers but from […]

Scenes From The Ruling Class


Colin Powell has long presented himself to the world as a figure of singular probity, too morally unimpeachable for the grimy world of elective politics. His fawning admirers in the chattering class have fostered this fiction for years. Before this week’s story over his hacked -mails, they politely averted their gaze from a similar hack […]

The Gasping and Grasping of Hillary


It sometimes happens in politics that a truth proves more useful than a lie. For unscrupulous pols like the Clintons, that is the only basis for regretting a lie. Hillary’s aides are kicking themselves over the pneumonia story not because they concealed it but because telling the truth would have spared them a lot of trouble. Had […]

Conservatism’s Loss: The Passing of Phyllis Schlafly


“Conservative Activist Phyllis Schlafly Dead At 92- one is not supposed to speak ill of the dead. So no comment then,” tweeted out former tennis star Martina Navratilova on Monday night. Even in death Phyllis Schlafly threatens and unnerves feminists. Such vicious tweets are a twisted tribute to her effectiveness as a foe of liberalism […]

Hillary’s Catholic Con


Barack Obama won a majority of the Catholic vote both in 2008 and 2012. Hillary Clinton, according to pollsters, is poised to do the same. She is leading Trump among Catholic voters by over twenty points. In an age of secularism and a secularized Catholic Church, Democrats have never found it easier to con Catholics. […]

The Gray Lady’s Dainty Concerns About Bias


The New York Times considered it news the other day that Sean Hannity gives advice to Donald Trump, whom he has publicly and repeatedly endorsed. The tut-tutting tone of the piece, coming from a newspaper as baldly biased as the Times, is comic. The subtext of the column is that Hannity poses a threat to […]

Christians in Hillary’s Crosshairs


Underpinning Hillary Clinton’s political philosophy is a coercive secularism that eliminates conservative Christians from public life. Should she win, she will not only force Christians to pay for contraceptives but also abortions. She will treat their schools and churches as the equivalent of Bob Jones University. She will court-martial chaplains and soldiers who don’t submit […]

Cannibalizing Their Own Candidate


Chasing after pats on the head from the media, country club Republicans continue to line up against Trump. They rose to power on appeals to “Republican loyalty,” but now display none. Party pragmatism suddenly disgusts them, as they deliver lectures about “values” higher than victory. Who knew RINO proponents of abortion rights and gay marriage […]
