Hillary plans June 13th rally to announce Presidential campaign. Wait, what?

Didn't she already announce this? Back on April 12th, the New York Times covered the announcement of Hillary Clinton's presidential aspirations like this: Ending two years of speculation and coy denials, Hillary Rodham Clintonannounced on Sunday that she would seek the presidency for a second time, immediately ... continue reading


Saudi Arabia wants to run the UN Human Rights Council. Also places want ads for more executioners

Worthless, Kafkaesque, organization.  The United Nations is one of the most worthless organizations on the face of the Earth. That's not hyperbole. It's just a simple fact. It's a grotesquely hypocritical money pit that exists mostly in an effort to redistribute global wealth and legitimize the planet's ... continue reading


Hillary finally answers some questions - badly. CBS calls her out for dodging.

Run Hillary Run ....Away. If you're the kind of person who thinks Hillary Clinton is trying desperately to avoid questions from the media, you owe her an apology. She's nothing if not completely forthcoming. Despite the fact that she went almost a month without answering a single media inquiry, Mrs. Clinton is an ... continue reading


Democrat Rep. worried about morale - because Congressmen haven't had enough pay raises

Poor little rich Rep. Out in the real world, pay increases are usually tied to performance. Do a better job, grab a better position, and make more money. It makes a lot of sense.  Unfortunately, Congress is not part of the real world.  When you live off the largesse of the American taxpayer, the sky is ... continue reading


Documents reveal Hillary was informed 'within hours' that Benghazi was an attack planned 10 days in advance

'Spontaneous Uprising' According to documents released Monday, Hillary Clinton (as well as other top federal officials) received a striking amount of intel within hours of the Benghazi attacks. The memos, which were obtained via a Judicial Watch FOIA lawsuit, indicate that President Obama and then Secretary of ... continue reading


Al Sharpton's daughter suing New York City for $5 million after spraining ankle 'real bad'

A chip off the old crook. If you've ever sprained your ankle, you'll never forget the shame, the inconvenience, and the outright agony that you've endured. You remember the crutches, you remember how hard it was to hop around while holding a beverage, and you remember hobbling about in that big, ugly, boot. You ... continue reading


ICYMI: The Washington Post has a timer to let you know how long it's been since Hillary answered a question

Well played, WaPo. Hillary doesn't like being forced into situations where she'll have to answer uncomfortable questions about her income, her age, her whiteness, her status as "America's inevitable President," or about rampant accusations of highly illegal influence pedaling while she was Secretary of State. So, ... continue reading


Boston Marathon Bomber receives death penalty

Don't let the door hit you on the way out. A month ago, Dzhokar Tsarnaev  was found guilty of all thirty charges stemming from his 2013 terrorist attack on the Boston Marathon. Now the sentencing phase is over, and the jury has returned its verdict: Death. As the New York Times reports: The jury, which last ... continue reading


Obama on Syria red line: weaponized chlorine isn't 'historically' considered a chemical weapon.

Boys, move the goalposts.  If you're having trouble keeping track of all the promises, threats, and "red lines" that Obama has applied to Syria and Assad, you're not alone. There have been so many that things tend to get confusing. However, one constant through it all has been a warning that, if the Assad ... continue reading


What bias? Stephanopoulos defends Clinton Foundation on show, fails to mention he's a major donor

The sanctity of the press. On April 26, ABC News chief anchor George Stephanopoulos interviewed "Clinton Cash" author Peter Schweizer. During their back and forth, Stephanopoulos repeatedly pressed his guess about the lack of a "smoking gun" which would prove an inarguable link between Clinton Foundation ... continue reading


Chicago's race to the bottom accelerates: Credit downgraded to 'junk' status

The new Detroit. As Detroit emerged from bankruptcy and began the long, arduous, process of clawing its way back from its Chapter 9 low point, it began to actually improve itself.  No, it's not "there" yet.  It's got a long way to go. But, if you live in or around the city, the improvements are obvious ... continue reading


Collapse: Hawaii sqaundered $205 million on its soon-to-be-shuttered ObamaCare exchange.

To be shuttered this year. Back when ObamaCare was first rolling out, we chronicled the horror stories associated with the various state exchanges. In the initial months of the ACA launch, the effort put forth by Hawaii was easily one of the biggest failures, managing to register a whopping zero customers for ... continue reading


Jeb: Of course I'd repeal Obama's amnesty - as long as I get some amnesty of my own.

Wait, what? America's pro-amnesty forces know exactly how unpopular amnesty is. The majority has never supported it, it's been politically disastrous for its adherents, and it's not likely to grow more palatable any time soon. As a result, the faithful (from both parties) decided to start using the term ... continue reading


ObamaCare's medical device tax is so bad, even congressional Dems want it gone

How bad does a tax have to be for.... There are dozens of reasons to think that ObamaCare was written while its architects were four martinis deep in their five martini lunches. Provision after provision has proven to be unworkable, unsustainable, or ineffective. The whole law is currently ... continue reading


Reuters: Those darned Clintons still won't come clean about foreign donations

Shocking! I'm going to warn you right up front. Nothing in this post will come as a shock to any of you. If you're on this site, you're "politically aware," so you already know all of it. Oh, and it's not because you've read it before, either. Nor is it it because you've perused the facts of the Clinton ... continue reading


FBI director: ISIS in touch with 'hundreds, maybe thousands' of potential U.S. recruits

Needles in the haystack A few days ago, ISIS issued a statement saying it had 71 attackers ready for missions in 15 states.  As usual, the left countered with their standard feckless response: "No they don't. They're just lying to scare you."  This despite the fact that, back in February, FBI ... continue reading
