As I’ve said many times before, the best part about Hillary Clinton running for President, is that she’s so unbelievably corrupt and shady, not a week goes by without a new scandal or embarrassment.

Andrew Napolitano: What If They Are Hiding The Truth?

The hard questions need to be answered.     What if President Obama secretly agreed with others in the government in 2011 to provide arms to rebels in Libya and Syria?

John Stossel: Hillary's Armor

Borrowing Bill's teflon.     "This vast right-wing conspiracy," Hillary Clinton said, "has been conspiring against my husband since the day he announced." That was the "feminist" first lady's response when her husband was accused of having sex with a 21-year-old. Bill was more lawyerly. He said things like, "It depends upon what the meaning of the    ... MORE

Thomas Sowell: A Simple Question

What has Hillary accomplished?      It is amazing how a simple question can cause a complex lie to collapse like a house of cards.

Stanley Kurtz: When Hillary's Server Meets Obama's Pen

The next level of tyranny.    Would a Hillary Clinton presidency rerun the corruption, secrecy, and paranoia of the 1990s?  Sure, but that’s not the half of it.  The larger problem would be a marriage of Hillary’s “Go to hell” attitude with Obama’s dangerous expansion of executive authority. What happens when someone who thinks “the rules don’t apply   ... MORE
