How Bad Was the Hillary Campaign?

  Matt Taibbi is certainly not my favorite political journalist, and Rolling Stone was permanently disgraced by the UVA hoax, but nevertheless Taibbi’s brief review of the new Clinton campaign book, Shattered by Jonathan Allen and Amie Parnes, is very worthwhile reading. After recounting the comedic failure of Clinton insiders to figure out their campaign’s […]

The Kaiser and the Clintonistas

  “Those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it,” George Santayana remarked, and young people today know so little about the past that they are well and truly doomed. The teaching of history has been replaced by indoctrination for progressive activism, as Jane Shaw has recently explained, which means that the more […]

The Pervert Party: Anthony Weiner Could Get 15 Years in Prison for Child Porn

  In July 2013, after former Democrat Rep. Anthony Weiner was caught “sexting” for the second time, I wrote a column for The American Spectator with a deliberately provocative title: “The Pervert Party”: Perhaps now someone at the New York Times or the Washington Post will ask Patrick Frey what happens to bloggers who call […]

The #WomensMarch: Why Trump Won

The all-out feminist crusade mounted on behalf of Hillary Clinton’s 2016 campaign reminded […]

Police say they have arrested four 18-year-old […]

Hillary Is Madonna or Something

Everybody wants to play pundit nowadays. The New York Times unleashed its arts writers on the most over-analyzed election in history: “I was called a whore and a witch,” Madonna said on Friday in a searing speech about the sexism and bullying that women face in the music industry and the culture at large. “Such […]

War on Women: Democrats Ready to Throw Nancy Pelosi Under the Bus?

  The irony here is rather delicious: In the aftermath of Democrats’ demoralizing election defeat, Representative Nancy Pelosi’s bid to return as minority leader has been transformed into a larger debate about what has gone wrong with a party that eight years ago controlled Congress and the White House. Ms. Pelosi, a 76-year-old San Francisco […]

Hillary Finds Her Scapegoat

  This was predictable: Hillary Clinton on Saturday cast blame for her surprise election loss on the announcement by the F.B.I. director, James B. Comey, days before the election that he had revived the inquiry into her use of a private email server. In her most extensive remarks since she conceded the race to Donald […]
