Donald Ducks: The Clinton connection

Featured image John covered one of the videos released by James O’Keefe’s Project Veritas Action Fund last week in “Undercover video shows Democrats plotting violence at Trump rallies.” In the “plotting” depicted in the cited video released last week, Scott Foval and Robert Creamer (since departed from the scene) play starring roles. In today’s update, O’Keefe posts “Rigging the election — video III: Creamer confirms Clinton involvement” video below. Robert Creamer again »

Brazile breaks it down

Featured image You had to hang in there after the debate to catch last night’s highlight — Megyn Kelly’s interview of Democratic National Committee chair Donna Brazile. Kelly asked Brazile about the Project Veritas video showing frequent White House visitor Robert Creamer explaining the role he played inciting violence at Trump rallies on behalf of the DNC and the Clinton campaign. The video of Kelly interviewing Brazile following the debate is below. »

Undercover Video Shows Democrats Plotting Violence at Trump Rallies

Featured image James O’Keefe has done it again. His latest video takes us deep into the dark side of the Democratic Party, where operatives, including at least one convicted criminal, do the bidding of the Democratic National Committee and the Hillary Clinton campaign. The principal topic is violence–that is, the effort by the Democratic National Committee and the Clinton campaign to provoke violence at Donald Trump rallies. There are some shocking admissions, »

Republican Headquarters in North Carolina Firebombed; Is Democrats’ Violent Rhetoric to Blame?

Featured image Last night, the Republican Party headquarters in Orange County, North Carolina was firebombed, presumably by a group of Democrats: Hillsborough police said somebody threw a bottle of flammable liquid through the window of Orange County’s GOP headquarters, setting supplies and furniture ablaze. Fortunately, no one was injured or killed, apparently because the premises were unoccupied at the time of the attack. The fire gutted the Republican headquarters: It is rather »

Who’s Deplorable?

Featured image One of the things that emerges clearly from the Wikileaks dump of John Podesta’s email chain, as noted here previously, is the utter contempt liberals have for “everyday Americans,” and their cherished institutions like the Catholic Church. The left has no problem discussing how they want to force the Catholic Church to change so as to conform to the current leftist party line. But this Podesta email, posted right after »

Goldman Sachs, the Democrats’ Friend

Featured image Wikileaks has released transcripts of three speeches that Hillary Clinton gave for Goldman Sachs in 2013. These were events hosted by Goldman, presumably for clients–e.g., the “Builders and Innovators Summit.” You can download the transcripts here. Hillary reportedly was paid $225,000 apiece. Some have found the speeches of great interest; ZeroHedge flags some relatively significant passages. My own opinion is that the speeches do not contain much of interest, and »

Clinton Operatives Brag They “Scared Off” Chief Justice

Featured image In one of the more remarkable Wikileaks exchanges, Clinton operatives Neera Tanden and Jennifer Palmieri took credit for “scaring off” Chief Justice John Roberts by threatening to make the Supreme Court’s decision in the first Obamacare case, NFIB v. Sebelius, a campaign issue. These are the players on the email thread: Center for American Progress (CAP): a left-wing activist organization that was an arm of the Obama administration and now »

Memory Lane, With a Suggestion for Trump and a Cartoon

Featured image It is interesting to see the news dominated by allegations of sexual boorishness by Donald Trump. Some of us are old enough to remember when Bill Clinton was disbarred and fined $90,000 because he committed perjury in a sexual harassment case. In those days, of course, Democrats insisted all of that was “just about sex,” and demanded that we stop talking about it. Same with the Lolita Express, I guess. »

More Wikileaks Paydirt: Democrats Hate America

Featured image I wish I had time thoroughly to go through the trove of John Podesta emails released by Wikileaks, but just a few I’ve seen reveal the deep disdain by which liberals regard the American people, American traditions and institutions. Everyone recalls how Hillary had to backtrack quickly from her remark that half of Trump’s supporters are “deplorables” and “irredeemable” (though her apology only really regretted saying “half”). The Podesta emails »

The Final Collapse of a Liberal Democrat

Featured image Just a few years ago, Anthony Weiner was one of the leading left-wingers in the Democratic Party, a fire-breathing scourge of Republicans. For some time now he has been in disgrace, as a result of his unfortunate sexting habit. Given his former stature in the Democratic Party, Weiner’s downfall is of considerable interest, but that interest is naturally heightened by the fact that he is married to Hillary Clinton’s best »

The curious case of Ilhan Omar

Featured image In case you missed it, I’m taking the liberty of reposting this from Friday morning in slightly revised form to draw attention to my City Journal column “The curious case of Ilhan Omar.” On August 30 I sat down with Preya Samsundar to talk about her work on the Ilhan Omar story. Covering the story for Alpha News, Preya has shown herself to be a dogged, resourceful and unintimidated reporter. »

Basket of deplorables

Featured image Hillary Clinton is circling the wagons and fighting off her enemies. She’s not so much naming names as she is calling names, reducing the Democratic playbook to its essence. There is a bracing purity about this. I’ll give her “grossly,” but “generalistic”? (Don’t spellcheck me, bro!) I think I know what she means. Do lift us up, Madam Hillary! Quotable quote: “To just be grossly generalistic, you can put half »

The curious case of Ilhan Omar

Featured image Last week I sat down with Preya Samsundar to talk about her work on the Ilhan Omar story. Covering the story for Alpha News, Preya has shown herself to be a dogged, resourceful and unintimidated reporter. It occurred to me that some readers might be interested in a summary of the story to date. I salute Preya’s efforts and include a few of her quotable quotes from our conversation in »

Ilhan Omar: Fox News pierces the silence

Featured image Preya Samsundar appeared for a brief segment on Fox & Friends this morning to discuss the Ilhan Omar story with our friend Pete Hegseth. Although the segment barely skimmed the surface of Preya’s reportage — Preya’s most recent stories are posted here (August 22), here (August 26) and here (September 2) — it introduced the story to a national audience. With the exception of Preya’s work at Alpha News, the »

Ilhan Omar: The sound of silence

Featured image Following her victory over 22-term incumbent Minnesota state Rep. Phyllis Kahn in Minnesota in the August 9 primary, Ilhan Omar emerged as the Democratic Party’s hot new thing. The Star Tribune touted her victory under a huge banner headline. Two follow-up stories analyzed the sources of Omar’s not particularly surprising success in a district whose demographics have markedly shifted toward the Somali community. At the end of that week we »

The Omar case: Curiouser and curiouser

Featured image The case of Minnesota DFL House candidate Ilhan Omar and her marriage to Ahmed Nur Said Elmi grows curiouser and curiouser. Is Ahmed Nur Said Elmi the brother of Ilhan Omar? Was the marriage entered into for dishonest purposes? These are the question we have raised in a series of posts over the past two weeks. I summarized the case yesterday in “Omar so far.” This much we know with »

Omar so far

Featured image Ilhan Omar defeated 22-term incumbent Phyllis Kahn for the DFL nomination to represent legislative district 60B in the Minnesota House. It was one of the biggest stories to emerge from our August 9 primary. The Star Tribune reported it in a page-one story under a banndr headline and a huge photo. Omar seemed to have a sense of herself as the party’s new star. That’s certainly how the Star Tribune »
