There was a reason that the White House staff wasn’t permitted to look the former First Lady directly in the eyes…it was for their own safety. More

Time for a Sunday morning schadenfreude overdose. Obama senior adviser Valerie Jarrett leaked to the press details of Hillary Clinton’s use of a private e-mail address during her time as secretary of state, sources tell me. More

How did the press or the Congressional investigators find out that Hillary had been using a 2nd email account? Someone had to tip them off. Several months back, Obama sent a number of his top campaign flacks to assist Hillary in preparation for her “It’s my turn, dammit!” presidential run. Now it’s no secret that […]

It’s my turn, right? I did the whole governor thing so it must be my turn. Look – I’m a principled conservative – just look at the data! Did I tell you I’m bilingual? In Spanish, no less! Did you hear that, Mexican-’Mericans? My wife, too – in English, though. Once you get to know […]

Promoted from the Ricochet Member Feed by Editors Created with Sketch. A Modest Proposal For Jeb’s Name Problem

 

Since the number of people looking forward to another Bush-Clinton presidential race is only slightly higher than the number looking forward to root canals of all their teeth sans anesthetic, I have a proposal, only slightly whimsical, for the former Florida governor. It’s very simple — all he has to do is change his name.

In these days of gender equality, polyamory, polly-(with a parrot, get it?)-amory, and whatnot, why should we be shackled to old-school heteronormative conventions like a wife taking her husband’s name? Just imagine if Jeb were to defy tradition, and take his wife’s name?

I’ve been following Benghazi since 9-11-2012, I can even remember where I was and what I was doing when I first saw the attack unfold. Things that bother me on a daily basis about Benghazi is the first few hours reports were actually reporting truthfully. Then came the spin, which quickly turned into lies by […]

Contributor Post Created with Sketch. Memo To Reince: Enough is Enough. Boycott NBC and ABC.

 

During a 2012 Republican primary debate, George Stephanopoulos asked Mitt Romney an obviously slanted if not altogether planted question about banning birth control. This mystified Romney since he had never even considered the issue as part of his platform. No major Republican had. But Stephanopoulos raised the issue and because of it, the GOP was forced to fight a two-year-long, imaginary “war on women.”

This talking point was later used by David Gregory on “Meet the Press” against Todd Akin whom handled it less articulately than Romney. But the fault in that did not lie with Stephanopoulos; it rested solely at the feet of the RNC for approving a former Clinton White House operative and still loyal Clinton acolyte to moderate a GOP debate.

A lot, it turns out. According to a bombshell interview with Brett Baier to air tonight on Fox News, rescuers were told to “stand down”, delaying help to those who perished in Benghazi by 30 minutes, which is the length of many violin concertos.

Contributor Post Created with Sketch. Inevitable

 

Hillary Clinton Reads From Her New Memoir In New York CityWith Eric Cantor’s political implosion and the news that our long investment of blood and treasure in Iraq is about to be entirely squandered by Barack Obama’s indifference, Hillary Clinton almost escaped disaster last week. Almost, but not quite.

Hillary’ presidential campaign-kickoff-disguised-as-a-book tour was a wreck from the beginning, even with her natural constituency in the news media. Like everything in the Clinton political world, it was a week planned, prepped, and war-gamed to a fault. It was meant to demonstrate not only her accomplishments, her ideas, and her Presidential campaign-in-waiting’s skills, but to continue to build dread of the Clinton Juggernaut. However, the overly regimented, four-seconds-per-prole limit during her book-signing events and the heavy-handed media handling drew a picture quite different from the one Team Clinton intended.

Contributor Post Created with Sketch. Hillary the Not-So-Inevitable

 

Former Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton laughs while answering a question at the 2014 National Council for Behavioral Health Conference at Gaylord National Resort and Convention Center at National Harbor, Md., Tuesday, May 6, 2014. Clinton spoke about mental health, political, and social issues during her talk. (AP Photo/Charles Dharapak)For the past year, I’ve predicted Hillary won’t be the Democratic nominee; I still doubt she’ll even run. As the Lion of Tuzla fumbles through her book tour, it’s easier to see the evidence for that counter-intuitive claim.

Yes, Hillary has mountains of cash, a ruthless political machine, ubiquitous name recognition, and a mostly loving press. She is “inevitable,” although less so than she was in 2008. But these vast advantages still aren’t enough to overcome Hillary’s fundamental flaw: she’s a horrible candidate.

Contributor Post Created with Sketch. Hillary Clinton: Please Don’t Actually Read My Book

 

Hillary-Clinton--Hard-Choices-jpgFrom Bret Stephens’s devastating review of Hard Choices, Hillary Clinton’s memoir of her years as secretary of state, in today’s Wall Street Journal:

[I]t’s not really a book at all. It is an artifact containing printed words, an event conveying political seriousness. Perhaps it could have been written at half its length (635 pages) with twice the interest. But that would have made it easier to read from start to finish, defeating its own purpose of being big and therefore, presumably, weighty. Ceci n’est pas une pipe, wrote (or painted) Rene Magritte. Just so with “Hard Choices”: Ceci n’est pas un livre…

I just received my June 2014 issue of Outside magazine in the mail. While I consider myself a conservative, I do enjoy and respect our environment. Not to digress but have you ever noticed how, when it comes to nature, progressives are the conservatives and conservatives are the progressives? Not only do they call themselves […]

Contributor Post Created with Sketch. Today’s Must-Watch Videos on Benghazi—Jon Gabriel

 

What the mainstream media once considered semi-racist conspiracy theories of the tinfoil hat crowd is re-emerging as a major story in Washington. The news cycle is moving quickly, but here are three powerful videos that will get you up to speed.

Early this morning, Joe Scarborough exploded at panelist Donnie Deutsch for warning the GOP off the Benghazi story. (Skip ahead to 7:00 for the good stuff.)
