The Enduring Awfulness of Hillary Clinton

Yesterday the New York Times reported that Hillary Clinton allegedly “chose to shield” a “top adviser” from sexual harassment allegations. The story itself is rather simple. A woman accused her faith adviser, a man by the name of Burns Strider, of sexual harassment. After a “brief” investigation, her campaign manager recommended that he be terminated. Clinton refused to fire him and instead docked his pay and ordered him to attend counseling. His victim was reassigned. 

In 2016 Strider joined a different part of the Clinton-industrial complex, a pro-Clinton organization called Correct the Record, where he was fired for, yes, harassing a female subordinate. 

How does Hillary respond to the Times story? With this absurd tweet:

And to think, there are members of the #resistance who still think they were on the side of the angels in 2016. Nothing could be further from the truth.

Stalin at the Movies

Toward the end of The Death of Stalin, two Communist Party bosses size up Joseph Stalin’s immediate successor, Georgy Malenkov. “Can we trust him?” one asks. “Can you ever really trust a weak man?” his comrade answers. Good question. Last week brought the news that the head of Shambhala ... Read More

One of President Trump’s outstanding appointments has been Dan Coats, his director of national intelligence. Coats is a former House member, former senator, and former ambassador to Germany.

The Rise of the Abortion Cheerleaders

Is abortion a sad and unfortunate reality — regrettable, as we are sometimes told, but often necessary — or is it a breezy nothingburger, completely “normal,” and something to be giddily celebrated like a last-minute NFL touchdown?  For a long time, the abortion lobby has had difficulty deciding. This ... Read More
