🌟Jim Cardoza: Why Hillary Clinton is Flashing a Devilish Smile

"Certainly, one does not need 20-20 vision to see warts on Donald Trump. They are neon. He is brash, arrogant, far too glib, frequently insulting and routinely defensive.

The ocular phenomenon even prompted the popular Drudge Report to splash a banner headline reading, “Unfocused.” It featured a black-and-white still shot from Clinton’s appearance. Clinton’s speech in Philadelphia came the same day two doctors told WND the Democratic Party nominee is suffering a serious neurological disease that should disqualify her from being president. ...

Obama Lied, And The Debt Ceiling Died

an Investor's Business Daily editorial. Transparency: What do you call it when an administration blatantly lies to the public to get its way in a debt ceiling fight, then covers it up for two years?

Oops Again? A Key Server Accidentally Gets Wiped By IRS

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
