We know that Obama’s “scandal-free” administration was littered with heinous acts that were more egregious than the Watergate break-in, or the cover-up that went with it. You can’t fire a Fast & Furious assault rifle, in any direction, without hitting some column or blog post on the alternative media containing the phrase “worse than Watergate.” […]

This photograph from 2005 was suppressed until early this year. Some people have speculated if it had emerged in 2008, Obama would not have been elected president. Farrakhan was and is a notorious anti-Semitic bigot. Certainly it would have highlighted Obama’s relationship with Rev. Wright. His excuse that he had never heard Wright say extreme […]

Last week on the flagship podcast, a comment about the age of the country and it being relatively young was made. I mentioned in the comments that Obama had another first with his presidency than the one usually attributed to him. Obama was the first, and currently only, president to serve under the same flag […]

The Texas tale for 2018? Republicans are still in the race. In fact, Ned Ryun of American Majority says the GOP is going to keep control of Congress. Is he right?

Texas GOP consultant Derek Ryan tells us how things look on the ground in the Lone Star state.

This Gave Me a Laugh

 

“We didn’t have a scandal that embarrassed us,” he said. The former president admitted that his team made mistakes, but no massive screw-ups. He then said, “I know that seems like a low bar,” at which point the audience burst into laughter.

Apparently, Barack Obama gave a “secret” speech at a sports analytics conference at MIT. But he didn’t talk about sports analytics, he talked about himself and how great he is and other progressive bull. Pity the poor attendees at that sports analytics conference.

Obama declared in April, 2016 that Clinton’s email scandal had not endangered national security.

Obama’s Chair

 

A professor once told me that the secret of truly great visual art is an element of humor that intentionally invites the viewer to smile with the artist. I’d say Michael P. Ramirez achieved that today:

I heard last year on the John Batchelor Show an opponent of the Iran Deal discuss his view that he being surveilled electronically. He belonged to an organization sympathetic to Israel. When they would write a column opposing the Iran Deal, the Obama administration would respond rapidly. The response was so quick that he and […]

Dear fellow Americans and distinguished congress-people and senators, the state of the union is good. I’m president. I broke the glass ceiling barring women from the highest office in the land.

Been away. Missed the Club. Missed my Schweppes, the authentic tonic mixer.  If you recognize the above, you are probably my age — that is, old. From age 58 to 72, I taught English as a Second Language in a semi-rural Virginia county at three elementary, a middle and a high school. I started writing […]

Welcome to the Harvard Lunch Club Political Podcast for January 10, 2018, number 157, it’s the Let’s Go Get Sessions Stoned edition of the show with your Magical Mystery Tour guides Todd Feinburg and Mike Stopa.

This week we explore the non-changes to the federal law prohibiting the sale and use of marijuana and the radical suggestion (hasn’t he done this before?) by A.G. Jeff Sessions that we enforce the existing law!!! Where did they find this guy? Hasn’t he been around Washington enough to know that we pick and choose which laws we enforce based on our perceived anticipation of the arc of history? Our HLC edition #80 contains our interview with then Senator Sessions and is here.

Dan Henninger of the Wall Street Journal opinion page joins Michael Graham to wrap up the year in Trump, Democrats and politics in general.

A tragic train wreck in Seattle, while the GOP Congress appears to be avoiding one of their own on today’s tax bill vote.

Why are liberals obsessed with spending billions of tax dollars on the cutting edge technology of the 19th century?

Everything you need to know about the GOP tax plan from two terrific experts: Grover Norquist of Americans for Tax Reform and economist James Pethokoukis of the American Enterprise Institute;

A week or two before the 2008 election, I was taking the morning commuter train trip to Chicago. I sat next to a man who was intently reading documents. I asked what they were. He said that they were Obama speeches from when he was a state senator and he had written some of them. […]

Last February President Trump rescinded one of Obama’s executive orders regarding gun control. Basically, Obama ordered the Social Security Administration to report people who were no longer in control of their finances to the National Instant Criminal Background Check System that Trump chose to nullify. I can’t imagine why he did this or why Congress supported […]
