A Tough Lady

Editor’s Note: The following post is sponsored by our partner, Hillary’s America.

No, not Hillary. Well, she is tough, in a Capone-ish way — the point of Dinesh D’Souza’snew book, Hillary’s America: The Secret History of the Democratic Party, is that the Clinton/Rodham party is little more than a criminal racket.

The “tough lady” I refer to is someone else, Vanderbilt University professor Carol Swain, who plays a big role in Hillary’s America, the movie. I’ve got to admit, embarrassed until I saw the film this past weekend at its red-carpet premier in Cleveland, where I met her, I didn’t know of the professor. It takes a boatload of moxie to be a black scholar who takes on the racist roots of the Democrat party, as she does with great poise and authority. Her straight-talk indictment of the party’s historic influences (the KKK), its role in fighting against civil-rights legislation, its thrill to white supremacy, and so much more is a highlight, and focal point, of the film. No wonder she is despised by the Left.

Watch the trailer, and catch some glimpses of this special lady.

The Kavanaugh Court

If Justice Barrett votes as her mentor Justice Scalia did, she will be part of an ascendant conservative majority on the Supreme Court. What kinds of decisions can we expect from this majority?
