How sore loser Hillary created a national obsession with Russia

Featured image Scott has linked to an article by Paul Sperry in the New York Post called “How Team Hillary played the press for fools on Russia.” Sperry’s article is also one of our “Power Line picks.” Many of our readers will come across Sperry’s article, either via Power Line or in some other way. However, I think portions of it are worth quoting here, just in case. Sperry writes: Hillary Clinton’s »

More explosions from that cigar?

Featured image Kimberly Strassel of the Wall Street Journal tells us to expect more “Russia bombshells” if a judge orders Fusion GPS to turn over bank records to House investigators. Says Strassel: We now know where Fusion got some of its cash, but the next question is how the firm used it. With whom did it work beyond former British spy Christopher Steele? Whom did it pay? Who else was paying it? »

Clintonian collusion with Russia [UPDATED]

Featured image We now know that the Clinton campaign paid Christopher Steele the funds he used to develop the infamous dossier on Donald Trump. We also know that, in compiling the dossier, Steele relied on Russian sources, including sources with Kremlin ties. For example, as Scott points out, Steele’s “Source B” is “a former high level Russian intelligence officer still active in the Kremlin’s inner circles.” When Team Clinton enlisted Christopher Steele »

Exploding: Hindenburg or cigar

Featured image Writing about the Fusion GPS scandal, Conrad Black uses the metaphor of the exploding Hindenburg. Although it’s a metaphor that should be avoided when talking Clinton scandals, I think it would more aptly be described with the metaphor of an exploding cigar. Here’s why. The Trump Dossier has been widely used to foment and propagate the hysteria over Russian collusion with the Trump campaign. How widely we don’t know. What »

Hillary’s dossier

Featured image The Trump Dossier was a fertile source of hysteria over Russian collusion with the Trump campaign. Then FBI Director James Comey found the dossier of use, briefing President Trump on it at Trump Tower in New York two weeks before the inauguration. “In my opinion, he shared it so that I would think he had it out there,” Trump subsequently told the New York Times. When asked by the Times »

Report: FBI offered to pay for work on Trump dossier

Featured image Hillary Clinton’s campaign and the DNC weren’t the only ones prepared to pay for the development of a dossier on Donald Trump in the fall of 2016. Earlier this year, the Washington Post reported that a few weeks before the 2016 election, the FBI reached an agreement with Christopher Steele to pay the former spy for continuing to his work on the anti-Trump dossier he was developing for Clinton and »

The lying game, Clinton style

Featured image Team Clinton team brought the lying game to suppressing news of its funding of the Trump Dossier. At the Daily Caller, Peter Hasson usefully sums it up: Clinton campaign lawyer Marc Elias “vigorously” denied his involvement in the anti-Trump dossier that has made up the substance of the Russian collusion allegations, New York Times reporter Ken Vogel said. Elias’ denial appears to have been intentionally misleading in light of new »

Collusion, Clinton style

Featured image Well, well, well. The Washington Post reports: The Hillary Clinton campaign and the Democratic National Committee helped fund research that resulted in a now-famous dossier containing allegations about Donald Trump’s connections to Russia and possible coordination between his campaign and the Kremlin, people familiar with the matter said. Marc E. Elias, a lawyer representing the Clinton campaign and the DNC, retained Fusion GPS, a Washington firm, to conduct the research. »

Hillary Unplugged

Featured image So Hillary was over in Britain a couple weeks back flogging her book, perhaps hoping for a more sympathetic audience. The whole 19 minute video here is excruciating. It is beyond fingernails on the blackboard cringe-inducing. I wouldn’t blame anyone who gouged his eyes out and plugged his ears with cement. The non-stop excuses and rote-recitation of her career resume (does anyone not know by now that she was a »

Hillary Clinton: New York Times peddles bologna about her

Featured image No, Hillary didn’t quite say that. She said that stories about her and her husband helping Russia obtain drilling rights in the U.S. through Uranium One are just people “peddl[ing] bologna.” Clinton cited “Trump and his allies, including Fox News.” They are just trying to divert attention from “real Russian ties between Trump associates and real Russians,” she would have us believe. But it was the New York Times that »

The Uranium One scandal

Featured image Andrew McCarthy brings an expert prosecutor’s eye to his NRO column explicating the Uranium One scandal. He wants readers to understand that it is not just, or not mainly, a Bill and Hillary Clinton scandal, though it is that. It is also an Obama administration/Obama Department of Justice scandal; it is a Robert Mueller and Rod Rosenstein scandal as well. My friend Andy’s expert analysis arrives at a straightforward conclusion: »

Hillary Clinton, uranium, and a Russian spy ring

Featured image J. Michael Waller, writing in the Daily Caller, says that new FBI information about corruption in a Clinton-approved uranium deal with Russia raises questions about Clinton’s actions after the FBI broke up a deep-cover Russian spy ring in 2010. The FBI ran an elaborate and highly successful operation called Ghost Stories to monitor and rip apart a deep-cover Russian agent network. It tracked a ring of Russian spies who lived »

Hillary: Be Silent Please, Part 2

Featured image Michael Ramirez liked my post on Stephen Paddock’s massacre and Hillary Clinton’s ignorant and opportunistic response thereto, which involved firearms silencers (more properly, suppressors). My post was titled Hillary: Be Silent Please. He drew this cartoon, titled Imagining a Silencer. Click to enlarge: »

Hillary, Bunny, and John Edwards

Featured image Many decades ago, what is now the Style Section of the Washington Post was called the Women’s Page (or Pages, I don’t remember which). I never read the Women’s Page, but a bit of gossip in today’s paper strikes me as perfect grist for that mill. To be fair, it also relates to style, or the lack thereof. The Post tells us, per a new book, that heiress Bunny Mellon »

Hillary Clinton peddles fake news about Trump and Puerto Rico

Featured image Frustrated by the justifiably high marks President Trump received for the federal government’s response to Hurricanes Harvey and Irma, portions of the left are attacking Trump for allegedly not being sufficiently concerned about Hurricane Maria, which pounded Puerto Rico. Hillary Clinton is doing her part. She slammed the president for his near silence about the situation in Puerto Rico. Ever the snob, Clinton stated, with no apparent basis, “I’m not »

Chardonnay Or Vodka?

Featured image You may have seen this tweet by Razor: Find a love that looks at you the way the press looks at Hillary. pic.twitter.com/KxPXNpWl5n — Razor (@hale_razor) September 6, 2016 I might have expected that losing would dim the press’s affection for Hillary, but I would have been wrong. Losing the election produced sympathy, not contempt. Thus Hillary’s book tour for What Happened has been a love-fest. Apparently there is not »

What Happened? A Horrible Candidate Lost

Featured image So far, I have refrained from weighing in on Hillary Clinton’s post-mortem, What Happened, even though, as one of the few pundits who predicted that Donald Trump would win the presidential election, I perhaps can claim at least some insight into what happened. Why did I foresee that Trump would win? Not because I anticipated or understood what became the Trump phenomenon. Rather, because I thought that Hillary was such »
