The Trials of Saint Hillary
Hillary Clinton is perfect.
That, apparently, is the Left’s new line on their nominee. It was one thing to label her a corrupt old crone when she was running against newfangled 1930s near-octogenarian Bernie Sanders. It was another thing ...
Only We the People Can Awaken America from 2016’s Nightmare
Like all the worst nightmares, 2016 started off with such promise. The Republican field of 17 was star-studded, including accomplished governors, senators, and business leaders.

To Combat the ‘Rigging’ Charge, National Public Radio Should Be More . . . National

The FBI’s October Surprise Is Devastating for Hillary Clinton

These days, there’s been a lot of discussion about conservative media’s culpability in creating unrealistic expectations and warped priorities among Republican voters. It’s a reasonable critique. My question: When are we going to have this conversation about ...

Baseball, the Game Free of Clocks
It was a 108-year wait. That any American was alive the last time the Chicago Cubs won the World Series is extremely unlikely. Any person with a living memory of it would have to be older than 110. Still, there are ...
No, Election Fraud Is Not as Unlikely as a Lightning Strike
Speaking at a partisan fundraiser in Florida last month, President Barack Obama touched on a number of issues near and dear to the hearts of liberals. It was part stump speech, part farewell-tour stop — and part chance to knock efforts ...
Will There Be Consequences for a Democratic Law Firm Caught Funneling Campaign Funds?

Stop the Hysterics over ‘Voter Suppression’

A Fifth Clinton Presidency? Hill, No!
I keep hearing that Hillary Clinton would be “Obama’s third term.” The math is wrong. Barack Obama served the Clinton crime family’s third and fourth term. Electing Hillary would doom America to a fifth Clinton White House.
From 1993–2001, ...
It is hard to believe that this clangorous campaign of defamations is in its last week. Of course, in the first year of Donald Trump’s largely self-financed campaign, which broke all records for the sale of silly T-shirts, hats, ...
Obamacare’s Slow, Painful Unravelling Continues

It is especially painful for me, as an economist, to see that two small cities in northern California — San Mateo and Burlingame — have rent-control proposals on the ballot this election year.
There are various other campaigns, in other places around ...
Team Clinton Tries to Shoot the FBI Messenger
Democrats crying foul over FBI director James Comey’s recent letter to Congress might consider this logic: If you don’t want the FBI involving itself in a presidential election, don’t nominate a candidate who’s under investigation by ...
A Fitting Final Chapter to the Sleaze Sweepstakes

Scientists Don’t Have to Choose between Faith and Reason

Imagining How Donald Trump Would Win

So in that spirit, let’s ...
Hillary and Her Enablers Have Made Their Bed, and Are Now Lying In It
Before Democrats burn James Comey in effigy, they should think about how the FBI director came to have an outsized influence in the election in the first place.
It’s not something Comey sought or welcomed. A law-enforcement official who ...
The Democratic Establishment Has Enabled Hillary’s Corruption at Every Turn
When the definitive post mortem of this dismal election is finally published, it should go something like this: The Republican establishment was foolish; the Democratic establishment was ruthless. The Republicans fumbled around incompetently and spinelessly in the face of an ...
Evan McMullin against the Leviathans

Comey Is Not the One Whose Unorthodox Actions Are Casting a Cloud over the Election
How rich of Hillary Clinton to complain now that FBI director James Comey is threatening the democratic process by commenting publicly about a criminal investigation on the eve of an election.

History Repeats: A Nixonian Cover-up in the Home Stretch of the Campaign

As New Hampshire goes, So Goes the Senate?
Manchester, N.H. — In 1936, President Franklin Roosevelt defeated Kansas’s Governor Alfred Landon in 46 of the 48 states, thereby creating the jest, “As Maine goes, so goes Vermont.” Eight decades later, New England has gone from the Republicans’ last redoubt in ...
Clinton’s State Department: A RICO Enterprise
Felony mishandling of classified information, including our nation’s most closely guarded intelligence secrets; the misappropriation and destruction of tens of thousands of government records — these are serious criminal offenses. To this point, the Justice Department and FBI have found ...
Clarence Thomas needs to speak more. Not for his benefit. For America’s.
This is the justice’s twenty-fifth year on the Supreme Court. He is famously reticent. Not only on the bench, where in February he shocked the media ...
Hillary’s New Hires Would Go Far Beyond the Supreme Court
Hillary Clinton’s critics correctly warn that she could name one or more justices to the U.S. Supreme Court.
But that would be just a start.
As conservative activist Richard Viguerie has argued for years: “Personnel is policy.”
No, Trump Supporters Aren’t Planning an Armed Revolt
The New York Times offered a particularly ominous headline Thursday:
“Some Donald Trump Voters Warn of Revolution if Hillary Clinton Wins.”

The ‘Transactional’ Nature of Clinton Inc.

This was an apt description of Doug Band, Bill Clinton’s longtime right-hand man and the figure at the center of the latest WikiLeaks revelation.

So Far, Trump Is Not Sinking Down-Ballot Republicans
Could a flailing Donald Trump campaign hurt down-ballot Republicans and cost the party majorities in the Senate and House? That seems possible, if he loses to Hillary Clinton by a margin similar to those in most current polls and if ...
Barbara Comstock: The New Face of the Republican Party
Something quite startling happened in a close House race in northern Virginia this year. The Washington Post endorsed the incumbent Republican, Barbara Comstock. Comstock has been a familiar figure in the region for decades, but not in a way that ...

At the U.N., Another Obama Kowtow to the Castro Regime
