In Bed With Her Wall Street Cronies


In his less-than-enthusiastic endorsement of Hillary Clinton as the Democrats’ choice for President, Sen. Bernie Sanders decried “Greed, recklessness, and illegal behavior” and declared that we couldn’t let “billionaires buy elections.” Perhaps his opposition research team discovered what we have about Clinton’s connections with the very entities he despises: Wall Street, which he’s accused of […]

Are Democrats the No-Growth Party?


Amidst the latest email turmoil inside the Democratic National Committee, another scandal of sorts has emerged. Democrats don’t have any growth message. None. My friends at the American Enterprise Institute reported last week that the Democratic platform is silent on “economic growth.” Every poll shows that the economy and jobs are the voters’ top two […]

LOL at the DNC


Democrats have every reason to rage against the Democratic National Committee: Newly leaked DNC memos confirm that Donald Trump was right when he said the party machine was “rigged” in Hillary Clinton’s favor. The latest CNN/ORC poll shows that 68 percent of voters think Clinton is not “honest and trustworthy.” As a Republican unhappy with […]

Black Votes Matter


Black votes matter. If Republicans could get 20 percent of black votes, the Democrats would be ruined. This is highly unlikely, given the approach used by Republicans. However, the point is that Democrats must not only continue to get nine-tenths of black votes, they also need to get a high turnout of black voters on […]

Can Hillary Get As Much Applause at The DNC as Bernie?


I just finished watching Bernie Sanders speech. It took him several minutes to begin his remarks because of the wild applause. Can Hillary hope to get that much applause? Come to think of it, will as many people watch Hillary’s speech as watched Bernie’s? There were some in the audience who derided Hillary’s name as […]

Something Terrible


When Hillary Clinton chose Tim Kaine as her vice presidential nominee, what she was really choosing was one of the two major characteristics defining her as a politician. Clinton could, had the notion struck her, picked Sherrod Brown or Liz Warren as her running mate. In doing so she would have fully embraced her record […]

The LGBT Bandwagon Rolls On


On July 14 the California board of education added LGBT mandates to the state’s new K-12 social studies program, revised for the first time in ten years. This ended a long struggle over school-based Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender studies, playing out for decades inside and outside the state. The San Francisco Chronicle called the […]

Smoke Gets in Your Eyes: T Does Cleveland


With everything that could’ve gone wrong, Cleveland was a heckuva week for T. The media were in full no-more-nice-guy mood, street-lefties were ready to rumble and the cops were antsy, ready for some serious headcracking. But here we are at week-end with the party in reasonably good shape and T’s ticket running even with the […]

Old Men With Big Serves


There was a moment at the final of the Washington Open when I thought the spectators should be reprimanded for biggism. If the six-eleven guy hit long or out of bounds, they cheered. If he netted, they cheered. If he hit a spectacular return of serve, quick as a whip across the court and unreachable, […]

ISIS? No, Crisis


The Wall Street Journal report that Russian aircraft had bombed a supposedly secret U.S.-British base on the Syrian border with Jordan last month should raise the hackles of everyone in the presidential race and Middle East policymakers everywhere. It proved, redundantly, the comprehensive failure of Obama’s policies in the Middle East, particularly his more than […]
