Jim Geraghty of National Review and Greg Corombos of Radio America applaud President Trump for backing away from next month’s summit with North Korean leader Kim Jong-Un, proving he is not desperate for deal and keeping Kim off balance. While denouncing kneeling during the national anthem as the time or place to make a protest, […]

At her first appearance since her post-election concession speech, Hillary Clinton said today, “But as I said last week: our campaign was never about one person or even one election,” Clinton said. “It was about the country we love and about building an America that is hopeful, inclusive, and bighearted.” More

I voted this morning in Delaware County (PA), county leans red, but goes blue during Presidential elections. I got their right after the polls had opened at 7am. I’ve never waited longer than 5 minutes to vote, today I waited 45 minutes. I’ve never seen a line like that. I was voter number 70 and […]

Hillary Clinton: Living Dangerously

 

screen-shot-2016-10-28-at-7-54-24-pmComedic value aside (“probe”, “device”, “Weiner”), what we know for certain is that the FBI has reopened its investigation into the into Hillary Clinton’s handling of classified material after discovering emails from the then-Secretary of State on a computer used by the former congressman/full-time pervert Anthony Weiner.

Maybe I’m old-fashioned but I miss the days when you were expected to bow-out of public life the moment your penis appeared on the internet. But the 1990’s were simpler times: in that ancient era the belief was that it was as much for your own good as for the public’s.

Dilbert cartoonist and political analyst Scott Adams says the election is over. In his words, In the 2D world in which most people live, Clinton and Trump are polling about evenly, and either one could win. The 2D world is all about facts and policies and common sense. In other words – all the stuff […]

I’ve been a #NeverTrump guy from the beginning and I’ve stubbornly clung to that position. However, I experienced a bit of self-revelation this weekend as I followed the coverage of Hillary’s stumble and the very reluctant admission on the part of some of her loyal water-carriers that, yes, her health is an issue and, yes, […]

This from Politico: “The policy change is meant to prevent inadvertently violating pay-to-play rules, particularly the look-back provision, when partners transition into roles covered by these rules. The penalties for failing to comply with these rules can be severe and include fines and a ban on the firm from doing business with government clients in a […]

Trump Train in Ohio It’s something of a political cliche to hear during presidential elections, “As Ohio goes, so goes the nation.” The American voter is quadrennially reminded that no Republican has ever won the White House without winning Ohio. My fellow Buckeyes are subjected to a constant barrage of ads, phone calls, mailings, and […]

Vote for Trump, the lesser evil. If Hillary wins, she will hit the ground running. Team Obama is already in place and would have a new burst of enthusiasm to continue their work at eliminating individual liberties and taking down the supports of western civilization.  More

We Will Soon Find Out if Bernie Sanders Is a Serious Candidate

 
Hillary-Clinton-Armani
Hillary Clinton gives a speech on income inequality wearing a $12,495 Armani jacket.

Is Bernie Sanders a serious candidate in the contest to win the Democratic nomination for President? I do not mean to ask whether his policies are serious or whether he has the proper demeanor or necessary qualifications to hold the office. We know that his policies, which can be boiled down to a two-part platform of “Free Stuff for Everyone” and “Throw the Fatcats in Prison,” are fundamentally unserious. We know his demeanor is a little crazy but that he does meet the basic Constitutional requirements to hold the office of President.

But does Bernie Sanders want to win the Democratic nomination for President? That is the question we should be asking and which will be answered soon.

“Could you believe those things,” said one Republican Congressman to two of his colleagues, complaining about the size of his steak at a fundraiser the night before.

It’s time all conservatives put aside their differences and rally behind . . . any one principled person who is not Trump. Will it be Ben Sasse? Anybody got another name to suggest? I’d prefer to vote for somebody whose vote total is more than just statistical noise. More

Now is the time to take a deep breath and be calm. Why? We live in the greatest country in the world for starters. We do not live under tyranny. We are free, to say and think what we feel. We have done that in this election so far. If you are upset, it’s ok. […]
