Rules Don’t Apply to Queen Hillary

By Donald Lambro

donald-lambroWASHINGTON — The essential issues in Hillary Clinton’s widening email scandal have always been her judgment and her imperious belief that the government’s rules didn’t apply to her.

After multiple denials from Clinton that she did anything wrong, insisting she had broken no rules by using a private email system, the State Department’s inspector general released a stinging report Thursday, criticizing her for using a high-risk, unsecured home-computer system to send emails that, we now know, contained classified information.

At This Point, It Should Make All the Difference

By David Limbaugh

davidlimbaugh3Hillary Clinton has been groping around for a campaign slogan. She’s just unveiled her seventh meaningless catchphrase. How about “Still lying and breaking all the rules”?

That one probably wouldn’t help her campaign much — though with leftist voters these days, you have to wonder — but it has the virtue of being more accurate than her latest mealy-mouthed rallying cry, “Stronger together” — as if anyone, anywhere considers her unifying. Continue Reading.

WOOLLEY: Hating Texas is the New National Pastime

Mimi does not like Texas very much. (That would be the same Texas as in “Texas” Monthly, the Texas Insider with Lynn Woolley ONLY3magazine of which she is an executive editor.)

By Lynn Woolley

Texas Insider Report: AUSTIN, Texas – The other 49 states have always had this – thing — about Texas. I guess it’s because we’re bigger, we’re better, and we know it.

We were once a republic, and we have a history unlike any other state. But I don’t think that’s why there’s so much Texas hatred going on out there. I think it’s because Texas is still conservative.    Continue Reading.

Fantasy Baseball, Beltway Style

By Ann Coulter

Iann-coulter33n a campaign season with lots of surprises, how’s this for a wild prediction? It would never happen, of course, but pull up a chair and indulge me.

My premise is, President Obama hates Hillary Clinton and always has. Why?

(1) Because everyone hates Hillary;

(2) Obama has special reasons for hating her based on the things she has done and said; Continue Reading.

A Better Way to Run for President

By Cal Thomas

cal-thomasThe frustration of many voters over the way presidential candidates are selected has come to a head with Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump, the presumptive nominees of their respective parties.

If this is the best we can do, maybe we should consider a better way.

As of May 3, according to fairvote.org, while some states have seen a surge in primary voters over previous years, nationwide primary turnout remains low: “At this point in the process, 30.14 percent — less than one-third of eligible voters — have participated in a primary contest. The last time both parties had competitive presidential nomination races was 2008, which saw 30.82 percent voter turnout after all states had participated.” Continue Reading.

Failed Republicans Want to Rewrite the Constitution

By Phyllis Schlafly

phyllis.schlafly2Did you ever wonder why unsuccessful candidates merely “suspend” their campaigns after losing a key primary, instead of terminating them? Surely all those candidates knew that it’s impossible to restart a presidential campaign once it’s been suspended. In the famous words of Theodore Roosevelt’s daughter Alice Longworth, “You can’t make a soufflé rise twice.” Continue Reading.

Should ‘Never Trump’ People Get Over It?

By Mona Charen

monacharenWashington state’s Republican Party just defied the stampede toward “unity.” Meeting over the weekend, they awarded 40 of the state’s 41 delegates to Ted Cruz. Washington’s Republicans have refused to be sheep.

The past few days have featured hectoring demands of Never Trump people to “get over it.” These have come not just from the more bullying precincts of Trump fandom, as in “Get on the Trump train or get run over,” but also from party regulars and officeholders suggesting that failure to endorse Donald Trump now is a kind of stubborn self-indulgence. “While you sit out, Hillary gets elected,” huffed one of my critics, for example. Continue Reading.

Clinton’s Enablers on the Right

By Stephen Moore

stephen-mooreIs there anything more laughable than all the former members of the George W. Bush brain trust torching conservatives for getting behind Donald Trump? The tiresome complaint is that conservatives are tossing overboard their “core principles” when they support the fairly elected presumptive Republican nominee.

I won’t mention names, but here is the latest offensive rant of one longtime Bush aide who wrote in — where else — that bastion of conservative thought, The Washington Post: Continue Reading.

Trump and the Supreme Court

By Cal Thomas

cal-thomasIn releasing his list of potential Supreme Court nominees, Donald Trump, the presumptive Republican presidential nominee, has begun to solidify his support among conservatives as perhaps no other announcement could do.

The record of any of the 11 judges currently serving on federal or state benches may calm the fears of those who are not committed “NeverTrump-ers.” Continue Reading.
