We know exactly the kind of president we'd get in Hillary Clinton

And that’s the problem. John Stoehr,  a lecturer in political science at Yale and the 2016 Koeppel Journalism Fellow at Wesleyan, also thinks we know exactly the kind of president we’d get in Hillary Clinton, but he thinks that’s be a good thing. As a contributing writer in The Weekly, Stoehr makes the argument that... Read more »

Susan Sarandon's war on a woman--Hillary Clinton

Susan Sarandon, an icon of the far left, has launched a brutal attack on Democratic presidential contender Hillary Clinton. She pounced on Clinton on Wednesday night while campaigning in Iowa for Clinton’s Democratic opponent Sen. Bernard Sanders. Sarandon aligned with Republicans when she demanded that  issues are more important than gender–something that conservatives has been trying... Read more »

The 2016 presidential race is the goofiest in my memory

It says a lot to say that the 2016 presidential race is the goofiest in my memory. My memory takes me back (vaguely) to 1948 when incumbent president Harry S Truman upset his Republican challenger and New York Governor Tom Dewey. Can anyone with a longer memory recall anything crazier? On the Republican side, we... Read more »

Hillary Clinton should send her campaign bluster about North Korea's H-bomb to Barack Obama--and herself

Hillary Clinton has roundly condemned North Korea’s claimed successful testing of a hydrogen bomb–the most powerful kind of nuclear weapon. In her statement she said that North Korea “…must have no doubt that we will take whatever steps are necessary to defend ourselves and our treaty allies.” We can’t give in to or in any...

Hillary Clinton invokes American exceptionalism in fight against Islamic state

Hillary Clinton today outlined in detail how she would engage in a war against the Islamic state and worldwide terrorism. In essence she trumped both President Barack Obama and GOP presidential candidate Donald Trump by calling for, among other things, a “new phase” in the fight including a stepped up military offensive. But for me,... Read more »

Pro-choicers as human life deniers

Hillary Clinton meet Donald Trump. You two have become two of the most unhinged presidential candidates in memory. No need to return to Trump’s loopy and narcissistic rants—they’ve been well documented by the progressive (i.e. mainstream) media. But Clinton’s recent crackpot utterance, not so much. Speaking to an outdoor organizing event of supporters at Case... Read more »

So, how did Sec. of State Hillary Clinton get her classified messages?

With her denials that any classified information was sent or received on her smart phone, one can reasonably ask: So, how did Sec. of State Hillary Clinton get her classified messages? How did she discuss matters of highest national security? Carrier pigeon? Telegraph? Hand-written letters? Word of mouth? If she sent or received no classified... Read more »

GOP debate winner:Carly Fiorina. Losers: Donald Trump, Hillary Clinton & Barack Obama

Carly Fiorina came away as the winner of the GOP debates–a surprise to everyone except those who know her and have heard her speak. She was assigned to the JV squad (the early, non-prime-time debate between the seven candidates who didn’t make the first team cut) because only about 40 percent of Republicans know who...

Trey Gowdy asks questions about Benghazi that reporters can't answer

Reporters sat mute as Rep. Trey Gowdy asked them questions about Benghazi that reporters can’t answer. Reporters normally don’t respond to questions posed by a person who calls a press conference, and this time they didn’t either. As a long-time Chicago newspaper reporter, I probably would have not answered the questions either; that’s not normal... Read more »

But Hillary Clinton IS polarizing, calculating, disingenuous, insincere, ambitious

Hillary Clinton’s “Super Volunteers” have issued warnings to journalists not to use certain words when writing about her.  Among them are: Polarizing Calculating Disingenuous Insincere Ambitious Inevitable Entitled Over confident Secretive Will do anything to win Represents the past Out of touch “You are on notice that we will be watching, reading, listening and protesting...
