Donna Brazile’s Corrupt Silent Partner

Since its revelation in WikiLeaks two weeks ago, Donna Brazile has been justly excoriated for cheating on behalf of Hillary Clinton by passing along a debate question. However, an important aspect to this story has been overlooked. As the saying goes, it takes two to tango. Yes, Donna Brazile sent a critically beneficial piece of information - but Hillary Clinton accepted it. Mrs. Clinton accepted it (stealing), used it (cheating), and said nothing (lying). Read more →

Have Voters Priced In Clinton’s Criminality?

You never expect a candidate’s surrogates to tell you their candidate is a crook. But that’s exactly what Hillary’s surrogates are telling you now. From Bill Richardson to Robby Mook, Clinton surrogates are reciting a strange and disturbing talking point: Voters have “baked in” Clinton’s life of crime. [FLASHBACK: I gave James Comey the benefit of the doubt in July] The talking point seems meant to keep Democrats from panicking over the FBI’s re-opened criminal investigation of Hillary Clinton and the Clinton Foundation.

Obama Administration Revives Watergate—In Living Color!

Everyone knows that the White House is interfering with the FBI’s investigation of Hillary Clinton’s criminal conspiracies. We know this because the Justice Department is stonewalling the FBI’s request for a warrant to search the hard drive Huma Abedin shared with her ex-husband Anthony Weiner. For those of us too young to remember those black-and-white days of Watergate, here’s a brief timeline via Watergate.info: * **July 13, 1973:** Alexander Butterfield, former presidential appointments secretary, reveals in congressional testimony that since 1971 Nixon had recorded all conversations and telephone calls in his offices.

BREAKING: FBI Report Confirms Hillary’s Guilty Mental Problems

The FBI dumped its Clinton criminal investigation report today, and it’s full of bombshells. Bombs are exploding like the 4th of July, especially the way Clinton lied about Gen. Colin Powell. Clinton has maintained that Powell advised her to use a private email and cell phone instead of using secure systems provided by the US government. Hillary lied. Here’s what the FBI found: Clinton contacted former Secretary of State Colin Powell via e-mail to inquire about his use of a BlackBerry while he was Secretary of State … . Read more →

Hillary Takes While Donald Gives

Contrasts. Two Politico stories, just weeks apart, demonstrate the remarkable contrasts between the two candidates for president. The headline of the Trump story tells it all: Trump raised $32 million with RNC, but kept only a fraction. And the Hillary story: Leaked emails show officials tried to obscure the fact that Clinton allowed states to keep only a tiny fraction of proceeds from joint fundraising. Trump is on Team America.

Convict Hillary

A lot of people are mad at FBI Director James Comey. Comey read a list of crimes committed by Hillary Clinton, then announced he couldn’t recommend prosecution for those crimes. On its face, it sounds like Comey caved. Let’s play the imagine game. Imagine Comey decided to refer Hillary Clinton’s crimes to the Department of Justice for prosecution. What would happen? First, you’d never hear about it. The FBI and the DOJ don’t discuss active criminal investigations. Read more →

President Trump

You’ve probably noticed a lot of people are saying “President Trump” lately. And reading “President Trump” online, haven’t you? If not, you’ll probably notice it later today or tomorrow. [Tweet “Catch yourself saying ‘President Trump’ now? @realDonaldTrump”] It’s common during election years for pundits to occasionally say “President So-and-so,” usually sarcastically. And some “President Trump” talk is sarcastic. But most of this President Trump talk is subconscious prediction. People think President Trump is a thing, so their brains are warming up. Read more →
