The Week in Pictures: Powering Through Edition

Featured image It’s hard to get past the repetitiveness of the campaign, but we’re going to power through, just like Hillary. Meanwhile, I think “Dicking Bimbos” would be the greatest bar band name ever. Roger Clinton can be the lead singer! Powell’s Colon could be the opening act. And finally. . . »

Hillary’s Weekend in Pictures: Deplorable Edition

Featured image Has anyone ever had a worse 72 hours on the campaign trail than Hillary? I’m sure people can come up with some nominees, and in a separate post I’ll go over the Clintons’ amazing political survival skills. But some of the memes and images pouring forth can’t wait until Saturday, so herewith a special Monday edition of the Week in Pictures: And sorry folks, but in a post dedicated solely »

The Week in Pictures: “And They’re Off” Edition

Featured image Labor Day marks the traditional, official launch of the fall presidential campaign, though this bit of presidential campaign folklore has been obsolete for at least 50 years. But it’s a useful media trope, so we’ll probably stick with it until we bring back paper ballots to prevent foreign hacking of our elections. Not much really changed, though. Hillary is still coughing, and Trump is still choking (on Putin). And us »

The Week in Pictures: Labor Day News Dump Edition

Featured image So I know what I’m not going to do for the Labor Day weekend. I’m not going to get sucked into reading the Hillary FBI file. I’m not going to waste my time thinking about Kaper Colonick, or whatever his name is. Tonight, in fact, I’m going to do something really silly: I’m going to take in what’s left of the old 70s prog-rock band Yes, playing nearby, and seeing »

The Week in Pictures: Shaky Foundation Edition

Featured image Funny how we haven’t heard much lately about the supposed scam of Trump University. Maybe that’s because compared to the Clinton Foundation, Trump University was a paragon of high ethics and straight shooting. Right now it is hard to know just what will prove Hillary’s undoing—her shaky email scandal that is not finished, her shaky husband, her shaky financial dealings, or her shakes. And finally. . . »

The Week in Pictures: Olympics Edition

Featured image If there was an Olympic medal for political mendacity, the Clintons would upstage Usain Bolts for the fastest wind-aided dissimulation. Forget the triple jump. And in Ryan Lochte we’ve either found a successor to Brian Williams at NBC News, or President Hillary’s perfect press spokesman. And finally, the part of this job I hate the most. . . »

The Week in Pictures: Suction Cup Edition

Featured image Forget the Olympics. The dude climbing Trump Tower with suction cups was the sports highlight of the week, hands down. I’m amazed it isn’t being proposed as a new Olympic sport. Meanwhile, one of the candidates had another terrible week. Lied about things; said stupid stuff to reporters. Yeah, that’s right—it was the one who fancies pantsuits. The media hardly seemed to notice. This week’s gallery, by the way, achieves »

The Week in Pictures: Trumplosion Edition?

Featured image I’m on the road this weekend—literally on the road, as in by car—so this gallery was actually posted up ahead of time a couple of days ago, during the flurry of media hype about an “intervention” with Donald Trump by senior GOP figures. I doubt this idea is very serious. Is Trump really going to listen to Newt Gingrich? What could go wrong? And what is the right nomenclature for »

The Week in Pictures: Unready for Hillary Edition

Featured image Well, how about that? Maybe the: Worst. Acceptance. Speech. Ever. But here we are. One hundred days to go. More thoughts on that tomorrow. For now, enjoy the amazing spectacle of a plausible Democratic convention marred only by the pathetic speech of . . . their nominee. And once again, the ascent of a Clinton is marked with the wreckage of people ruined along the way—I’m looking at you, Debbie »

Mid-Week in Pictures: Special DNC Edition

Featured image Yeah, there’s just too much piling up from the first 24 hours of the DNC, and I’m sure the last two days will offer even more material, so here’s a fillip for the meantime: And finally. . .  since the DNC is having trouble with the whole flag thing (never mind guns), let’s remind them how it’s done properly: »

The Week in Pictures: Trumpnado Edition

Featured image Really, can there be any other plausible subject line for this week’s gallery? Trump proved Thursday night that he can go toe-to-toe with Bill Clinton at least for looonnng speeches. Is this what Trump state of the union addresses will be like if he is elected? Meanwhile, Hillary has picked Tim Kaine, who she hopes is able. Or as one friend put it, the Democrats are offering a ticket of »

The Week in Pictures: Notorious Edition

Featured image Michael Walsh likes to describe the Democratic Party as a criminal conspiracy masquerading as a political party, but maybe we should just call them the “Notorious Party.” The Notorious RBG is already a well known moniker, but Crooked Hillary can be rendered Notorious Hillary, too. And Obama showed once again that he just can’t help himself. And finally. . . another Power Line reader exercises her First and Second Amendment »

The Week in Pictures: Clintons Forever Edition

Featured image We may as well just admit it. The Clintons are the undead of American politics, the zombies of our dead body politic. We’ll never be rid of them. The Energizer Bunny will run out of power before the Clinton’s run out of their will to power. Better pre-book Chelsea Clinton speeches now, before her $60,000 speaking fee goes up after mom moves into the White House. And finally. . . »

Mid-Week in Pictures: Special Clinton Edition

Featured image The shocking outcome of the FBI investigation into Hillary Clinton’s perfidy demands a special edition of our Week in Pictures. Has there ever been a more sleazy family in politics? Well yes, the Kennedys certainly qualify, but have you noticed that in 50 years none of them has come close to the White House again? For that we can believe in some measure of cosmic justice. In this case? Well, »

The Week in Pictures: Brexit of Champions Edition

Featured image Between a Supreme Court that has totally lost its way without Nino, and a fresh terror attack that has thrown the Obama Administration into confusion (their standard operating mode on Islamic terrorism), it’s been a bad week. But there’s the supernova bright spot of Brexit to cheer us up—a gift that will keep on giving I expect. And finally. . . »

The Week in Pictures: Brexit Edition

Featured image What a week. It now seems like ages ago that a reporter was making fool of himself about how shooting an AR-15 gave him PTSD, and we were focused on the aftermath of the Orlando shooting and a rogue alligator at Disney. It seemed a cinch that the House Democrats sorry imitation of a pre-school juice box mafia would dominate the images of the week, but the dramatic Brexit vote »

The Week in Pictures: 2nd Amendment Edition

Featured image Mass shootings, by whatever kind of perpetrator, bring out the maximum ignorance from liberals and the media (but I repeat myself), but it’s even worse when the reaction involves averting one’s gaze from the growing problem of Islamic extremism in our midst. Good thing we have our cartoonists on the job. (And finally—something to change the subject from bathrooms.) Maybe we mistranslated Khruschchev all those years ago? Where Trump steaks »
