This is from the Federalist, and there are no “sources say” or “according to an aide with inside information.” It appears they have been digging through actual records themselves to get this information: Obama’s Campaign Paid $972,000 To Law Firm That Secretly Paid Fusion GPS In 2016 Former president Barack Obama’s official campaign organization has […]

In the mid- to late-90s, during the Clinton years, I had a number of international gigs as an affiliate with two consultancies with technology and futures practices. The Internet was hot, I had somewhat of a track record of calling its trajectory, and governments everywhere were interested in getting their piece of the action – […]

The Mainstream Media Can’t Be Bothered with Silliness

 

Reporting on a 13-month-old story is always difficult, as most people have moved on in their lives. Sometimes I believe that is exactly why the Federal Government takes so long to process Freedom Of Information Act (FOIA) requests, especially ones being requested from the Right side of the political spectrum.

So, let’s travel back to June of 2016. Hillary was in big trouble over emails and servers and whatnot, and it could potentially result in the end of her Presidential campaign if indictments were handed down by the Department of Justice. This all depended on what the FBI had to say about it, courtesy of a certain Director named James Comey.

Larry Elder: The Sage of South Central

 

Libertarian talk show host and best selling author Larry Elder, “The Sage Of South Central,” joins us at Whiskey Politics and tears it up! Larry is heard on over 300 radio stations on the Salem Media Network and is regularly featured on all major television news networks. Larry shares his thoughts on states rights, health care, Trump’s first six months, the media’s double standards and bias, his touching story from his book Dear Father, Dear Son about reconciliation with his Father. Of course, it’s Larry Elder, so we finished up with his outrage once again targeting O.J. Simpson, the response from the black community and what, if anything, has improved with race relations in the past 20 years.

It’s possible to be too square. Never taking a sip of alcohol? Never taking a puff of a cigarette? Never putting a dollar in a nickel slot? Therefore it shouldn’t be surprising that although a principled conservative, I don’t have much patience for the Never-Trump movement. The American Founders set an excellent example by rarely invoking absolutes […]

Welcome to the Harvard Lunch Club Political Podcast for April 26, 2017 it’s the One Hundred Days Don’t Matter edition of the podcast. We are brought to you this week by Casper mattresses: with over twenty thousand reviews with over 4.8 out of 5 stars, it is quickly becoming the internet’s favorite mattress.

This week our special guest is the inimitable, lovely and perspicacious Mollie Hemingway. Mollie takes time out of her very busy schedule as the latest and greatest Fox News contributor to join us to talk about Susan rice and underpants gnomes and why Hillary Clinton’s team didn’t see disaster coming from a long way out.

Jim Geraghty of Radio America and Greg Corombos of Radio America discuss MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow turning a supposedly big scoop on Pres. Trump’s tax history into a dud of a story. They also discuss why some in the media are determined to make Chelsea Clinton into some sort of political power player. And they shake their heads as former Maryland Gov. Martin O’Malley starts testing the waters for a presidential run in 2020.

America Faces a World of Trouble

 

Americans, their new president and his team, and the 115th Congress face a world that, in former Secretary of Defense Chuck Hagel’s memorable words, is “exploding all over.” New Secretary of Defense James Mattis asserted in his confirmation hearing that the world order “is under the biggest threat since WWII.” Hostilities, atrocities and weapons programs are escalating around the globe.

Syria is a cataclysm of war and despair. Iraq, Lebanon, Yemen, Sudan, Libya, Venezuela, and Ukraine are in crisis. The Middle East is beset by terrorism and the growing influence of Russia and Iran. Iran and North Korea are ever closer to becoming serious nuclear powers. China is flexing its geopolitical muscle, expanding its military power, and aggressively building islands in the South China Sea. Russia is bullying and destabilizing Eastern and Central Europe, and pressuring the NATO alliance itself. Islamic extremism, anti-Semitism, persecution of Christians, targeting of religious minorities, and severe human rights violations are on the rise.

American foreign policy at its best emphasizes both national security and security partnerships, and human rights. But President Obama and Secretaries of State Clinton and Kerry emphasized neither. They generally treated democratic allies and pro-democracy groups ungenerously, while treating adversaries and anti-democratic groups generously. The misguided hope was to create a unified, if morally mute world in which we could all, somehow, get along. Our debility and lack of compassion in turn gave hostile forces momentum, and fuel for their propaganda. As the United States weakened traditional relationships and surrendered leadership, trust in our reliability waned, while questions about our priorities grew. Often, we alienated the very moderate and peaceful countries and peoples we need on our side.

Jim Geraghty of National Review and Greg Corombos of Radio America cheer the news that the Clinton Global Initiative is shutting down. They also sigh as more and more Democrats publicly state that Donald Trump is an illegitimate president. And they unload on a reviewer who pans “Patriots Day” because a white male is the hero, the resilience of the Boston is presented as a good thing and police are the good guys.

Obama To Keep Doctor Despite Job Change

 

If the general election of 2016 has taught us anything it’s that the United States is every bit as diverse as progressives feared.

As for me, Thanksgiving has come and gone and I’m happy to announce that I graduated from the Democrats’ table to the children’s. Yay progress! And just when I think I’ve reached peak schadenfreude God, through His #imperfectvehicle Jill Stein, sends me a recount!

Why Pulitzer Winner Michael P. Ramirez Suggests “Clinton Shouldn’t Get a Pass”

 

Should the Trump Administration investigate the Clinton Foundation and Hillary’s emails? Two-time Pulitzer award winning political cartoonist Michael P. Ramirez discusses where Trump should focus his efforts, the Obama scandals, the Supreme Court, Cuba, socialism in America, California, and much more. Michael’s cartoons can be seen daily in over 400 newspapers, some of which are discussed in this interview aboard the Weekly Standard Cruise.

Jim Geraghty of National Review and Greg Corombos of Radio America enjoy watching more Clinton campaign fingerpointing – this time at Huma Abedin. They rip the intelligence community for being willing to offer anonymous stories to the press on Russian election hacking but being unwilling to brief members of Congress. And they get a kick out of celebrities launching a new video begging GOP electors to reject Donald Trump.

Sailing the Magnanimous Sea

 

At night, Holland America’s Nieuw Amsterdam’s showroom hosts illusionists, concerto pianists, song and dance acts, and run-of-the-mill cruise entertainment. But it was during the day the real stage action occurred as the “O.N.T.P.’s of the Caribbean” (Original NeverTrump Pirates) sat on panels discussing what historically may have been the craziest election cycle of our lifetimes. The Weekly Standard’s post-election cruise included an impressive collection of conservative writers, editors, pundits, politicos, and a few non-Weekly Standard surprises.

Jim Geraghty of National Review and Greg Corombos of Radio America applaud Donald Trump for selecting retired U.S. Marine Corps Gen. James Mattis to be Secretary of Defense. They also roll their eyes as Clinton campaign officials contend white supremacists won the election for Trump. And they explain why Trump’s deal is good for Carrier employees but a bad model to follow as an economic policy.

Jim Geraghty of National Review and Greg Corombos of Radio America gladly welcome the demise of brutal Cuban dictator Fidel Castro. They also slam Pres. Obama and other leaders and media figures for their mealy-mouthed statements about Castro’s record and give Donald Trump credit for getting the story right. And they shake their heads at Jill Stein’s money grab posing as a recount effort. They also slam Hillary Clinton for joining the effort and and Donald Trump for alleging voter fraud that supposedly cost him the popular vote.
