Bill O'Reilly, serial pig

Just looking at this arrogant, serial pig creeps me out. I often agree with his political views and he has co-written some readable popular history, but his pomposity makes me gag. Just as does Rush Limbaugh’s iron-clad certitude and righteousness. Conservatives can do better then these two. And they better. So now comes news that... Read more »

The Clinton Foundation questions ain't over until they're over

For those who thought that the Clinton email scandal and the questions about the pay-to-play questions about the Clinton Foundation have gone away with the election, consider this: Judicial Watch today announced it filed a motion that seeks to unseal the audiovisual recordings of the depositions of top Clinton aides and State Department officials. The depositions come... Read more »

Even progressive MSNBC is aghast at the Clintons' "ethical deficit"

How much more must the commonweal suffer the Clintons’ ethical deficit? Hillary and Bill Clinton has made the Chicago Way–the legendary Chicago corruption–seem to be small potatoes. Should the attorney general of New York shutdown the Clinton Foundation like he did the Trump Foundation for its shakedowns? Should the law be enforced evenhandedly? Even the progressive MSNBC...

Hillary Clinton's astonishing record of White House failures, fraud and cover-ups

Younger voters and rigid ideologues my not remember, or may choose not to remember, the many Hillary Clinton White House failures, fraud and cover-ups when she was the First Lady. There is nothing new here, but I even forgot some of these on the long list of her disgraceful tenure when she had her hand on... Read more »

Broke ITT's mistake was not paying off Bill Clinton

A tale of two for-profit schools: Federal regulators choked for-profit ITT Technical Institute to death, forcing it to shut its doors, laying of thousands. ITT failed to slip Bill Clinton the envelope. No such problems for Laureate International Universities, the for-profit that lagged  Bill Clinton $17.6 million to serve as its “honorary chancellor.” You can’t make up this stuff.... Read more »

Hillary Clinton, congenital liar

Some regular readers were disappointed, well, perhaps upset is a better word, that yesterday I posted an essay calling Donald Trump, a textbook narcissist. Even so, they said, he’s better than Hillary Clinton, that congenital liar. For me, it’s hard to tell which one, Donald Trump or Hillary Clinton, is the worse sociopath.  Or which one would...

Good riddance, Roger Ailes

As the accusations of sexual harassment against Fox News chief Roger Ailes pile up, the reasons for his dismissal multiply. The alleged groping, and a boss’s threats  to destroy an employee’s career if she doesn’t flop into bed with him–all are not to be tolerated. Besides, who would want to do the deed with this...

UPDATE: Do you think that Hillary will divorce Bill if she finally gets what she wants--the presidency?

UPDATE: The relevant question after November 8 is,  “Do you think that Hillary will divorce Bill now that he is just excess baggage after her loss to Donald Trump?” **** For decades now, the question has been asked: Why does’t Hillary Clinton divorce that cheating dirtbag, Bill Clinton? The stock answer typically has been because... Read more »
