Clinton Restoration Could Be in Jeopardy

By Jonah Goldberg

jonah-goldbergHow should one think about the unfolding allegations rocking the Clinton Industrial Complex (which includes both her campaign and her foundation)?

By now, you may have heard about Peter Schweizer’s book, “Clinton Cash: The Untold Story of How and Why Foreign Governments and Businesses Helped Make Bill and Hillary Rich.” Continue Reading.

Clinton Greed

Linda Chavez

linda-chavezThe Clintons have always had an uneasy relationship with money. Bill never had any. And although Hillary had a comfortable upbringing, she didn’t take the path to riches that her Yale Law degree might have provided, choosing instead to do public interest law right out of law school and marry a man with great political ambition.

But, clearly, both Bill and Hillary wanted the good life — and the money it takes to provide it. Nothing wrong with that, but the means by which they’ve enriched themselves have been unsavory at best. Continue Reading.

Rand Paul Is Right to Demand Reporters Ask Democrats About Late-Term Abortions

By Michael Barone

Michael-Barone1213It was sort of inevitable that on his first day of campaigning as an announced candidate for president earlier this month, Rand Paul would be asked whether he supported a ban on abortions in cases of rape or incest.

Reporters have been asking Republican candidates that question ever since 2012, when the Missouri Republican Senate candidate said he supported such a ban and added that pregnancies were unlikely in cases of “legitimate rape.” Continue Reading.

Still No Reports Of ‘Hillary Fever’ Outbreaks

By Ann Coulter

ann-coulterI gather from the increasing hysteria of the feminists that Democrats are beginning to rebel at having a loser of a presidential candidate being foist upon them, in the person of Hillary Clinton.

The same way the national tea party leaders are a thorn in the side of the Republican Party, constantly challenging incumbent Republicans with untested candidates who then go on to lose to Democrats (in Delaware, Indiana and Nevada, and nearly in Kentucky, Kansas and Mississippi), the feminists are a thorn in the side of the Democrats, saddling them with utter mediocrities like Hillary. Continue Reading.

Congress Is Finally Back On Track

By Karl Rove

The new Republican leadership has ended the Reid-Pelosi dysfunction.

Karl-Rove2The dysfunctional Congress finally appears to be working again as the Founders intended. Lawmakers are negotiating, voting on bills and actually passing legislation. As proof of this, National Journal’s Charlie Cook points to three things: congressional approval of a permanent “doc fix” to prevent cuts to physician reimbursements under Medicare; extension of the Children’s Health Insurance Program; and passage of budget resolutions by the House and Senate. Continue Reading.

McCaul: Keep America Safe, Plug Security Gaps that Allow ISIS, Al Qaeda to Travel with Ease

Michael-Mccaul12U.S. authorities this week disrupted a Minnesota-based ISIS recruitment cell working to send young Americans overseas to fight in Syria, highlighting a grave and growing threat from home grown radicals who are seeking to join extremist groups overseas.

But despite these arrests, we are nowhere close to shutting down the jihadi superhighway that has allowed thousands of young people to shuttle between the West and the world’s deadliest terrorist sanctuary. Continue Reading.

Flunking Civics Should No Longer Be An Option

By Cal Thomas

cal-thomas“Don’t know much about history” — Sam Cooke

It’s an old joke, but one that is a commentary on our times. A pollster asks: “What do you think about the level of ignorance and apathy in the country?” The person replies: “I don’t know and I don’t care.”

Each week, Jesse Watters of Fox News interviews mostly young people about politics, government, current events and history. Continue Reading.

Chaos in the Primaries

By Thomas Sowell

thomas-sowellPainful as it is to realize that both the Democrats and the Republicans will still be holding their primaries a year from now, that is one of the high prices we pay for democracy.

Seldom does the initial “front-runner” in either party’s primaries end up being the actual candidate when election day rolls around. However, even if we cannot predict the outcomes of the primaries this far in advance, we can at least start trying to understand the candidates, the almost candidates and the people who are running just for the publicity. Continue Reading.
