Capitol Hill Republicans — Starting With Paul Ryan — Need a Backbone

 

As always, a presidential tweet raises the obvious question. Tweeted the President: “It’s very sad that Republicans, even some that were carried over the line on my back, do very little to protect their President.” And a bit later came this other presidential tweet. “So why aren’t the Committees and investigators, and of course our […]

Dick Morris on Video: Bill Clinton Intervening in Russian Election Caused Putin’s Revenge

 

As mentioned in the nearby column, ex-Bill Clinton aide Dick Morris gave an interview to Steve Malzberg of Newsmax last September. Steve has helpfully flagged the video of his Morris interview. In this video, at 2:45 in, Morris specifically says that he witnessed then-President Clinton repeatedly interfering in the 1996 Russian presidential election, thus incurring […]

Dick Morris: Bill Clinton Meddled in Russian Election for Yeltsin

 

September, 2016. The Hillary Clinton/Donald Trump campaign is in full gear. And Newsmax TV’s Steve Malzberg, host of “America Talks Live,” has a scoop. And for some interesting reason in July of 2017, that Malzberg scoop from months ago seems to have gotten lost in the swirl of Trump-Russia stories. Lost most particularly in the latest gusher […]

Lincoln on America

 

Happy Fourth of July. Instead of columnizing, this day of all days — particularly in the current contentious political climate — there is reason to recall a far more contentious moment in American history. Mere miles from where I write is Gettysburg, Pennsylvania. A once peaceful village that, through a series of coincidences, became in […]

Mediaite’s Trump Phobia

 

So as with everyone else I have been reading about the CNN situation on Russia. As a CNN commentator it is important to emphasize that I am just — and only — that: a commentator. Not an executive, not a reporter. Thus I have no inside information on the internals surrounding the headlines of the […]

Witch Hunt: The Getting of the President

 

Yes, it’s a witch hunt. With the witch hunters having not just obvious but massive conflicts of interest. The Wall Street Journal is concerned. And correctly so. In a Friday editorial, the not-always-friendly-to-Trump paper headlined: Robert Mueller’s Mission The special counsel needs to rise above his Comey loyalties. The editorial read in part: That didn’t take long. […]

In Defense of Bill Maher’s Free Speech

 

There he goes again. He being comedian and talk show host Bill Maher. The host of HBO’s Real Time stepped in it the other week, as described here by Esquire: Yet while Maher has never hidden the joy he takes in busting on Trump — or, for that matter, his broadly Democratic leanings — he has distinguished himself […]

Jared Kushner: Trump’s Bobby Kennedy

 

His name was Georgi Bolshakov. His real job? He was a colonel in the GRU — the formal name of the latter being the Main Intelligence Agency of the General Staff of the Armed Forces of the Russian Federation. His cover? Bolshakov was a mid-level diplomat operating out of the Soviet Embassy in Washington, D.C., who […]

Backlash: Americans Stand Up for Sean Hannity

 

Enough is enough. Five years ago, this space featured two back-to-back columns titled “Rally for Rush” and “The Plot to Get Rush.” The focus was a serious attempt by the far-left, race-card playing site Media Matters to force Rush Limbaugh from the airwaves by pressuring his sponsors to cease their connection with the show. The attack on Rush […]
