Obama’s Chelsea Manning decision President’s dangerous move reveals scary take on our national secur

Liz | 01/17 at 06:51 PM

The commutation of Chelsea Manning’s prison term will forever be a blot on President Obama’s legacy. Just as the pardon granted Marc Rich by President Clinton on his last day in office became a totem of the odious pay-to-play money grubbing of Bill and Hillary, l’affaire Manning will be an enduring reminder of Obama’s constant pandering to special voter groups and mindless adherence to a progressive agenda.

It will also stand as testimony to President Obama’s questionable fealty to America’s security and the rule of law.

It was, and will prove to be, a terrible decision.

Obama’s full-blown, year-end temper tantrum

Liz | 12/30 at 03:45 PM

Let’s be honest: President Obama is throwing a good old-fashioned foot-stomping world class temper tantrum. He is just beside himself that the stupid American voter elected Donald Trump. How could the country willfully dismiss the erudite recommendation of nearly every news organization in the nation – as well as Obama’s personal plea that not electing Hillary would be a personal insult to him? How could young people not respond to Obama’s call to “bend the arc of history in a better direction?” It is beyond comprehension.

Obama and the cyber threat: Leading from behind hurts US…again

Liz | 12/19 at 12:18 PM

President Obama has been punished for his dithering. If indeed Russia was behind the many unsavory revelations about Hillary Clinton’s campaign, and if indeed Obama facilitated that effort by failing to push back against the hacking of the DNC and John Podesta’s emails, it is an ironic capstone to eight years of leading from behind.

As a consequence of failed U.S. leadership it falls short of the murder of 400,000 Syrians or the ongoing slaughter in Iraq, but it is perhaps to Mr. Obama and his Democratic colleagues the worst of possible consequences.

The liberal establishment is under attack by President-elect Trump, and Mr. Obama is at least in part responsible.

Can Hillary Clinton buy the 2016 election?

Liz | 10/31 at 05:36 PM

Can money buy an election? Hillary Clinton better hope so. Thanks to Director Comey’s bombshell announcement that the FBI is reopening the investigation into Clinton’s mishandling of classified information, a close race will almost surely tighten further. Hillary goes into the home stretch under pressure, with lagging enthusiasm and falling “favorables”, but with this to fall back on: piles of cash.  

Why Trump’s ‘Conract’ is a gift to millions of common sense Americans

Liz | 10/28 at 10:48 AM

Donald Trump is again gaining on Hillary Clinton. Is it because of ObamaCare? Is it because of WikiLeaks? Or could it be because frustrated voters demand change, and that Clinton is the poster child for the status quo? Trump is not the perfect messenger, to be sure, but he is embracing a perfect message: it’s time to shake up the establishment, or, as he says, to “drain the swamp.” It is time for a new Contract with the American Voter, and he is offering just that.

Calm, informed, reasonable: Trump scores at final debate

Liz | 10/20 at 10:08 AM

Bottom line: in the third and final presidential debate, Trump had his best outing yet. He was calm, informed and reasonable, and managed to again put Hillary on the defensive.

It’s Hillary, Obama who have boosted Putin’s fortunes, not Trump

Liz | 10/12 at 11:36 AM

Shame on the New York Times. Despite leaked emails revealing collusion with the Clinton campaign that should embarrass any legitimate news organization, the paper continues to carry water for the Democrat candidate.

Among other fictions, the Times frequently repeats the meme that Donald Trump is in cahoots with the Russians. Wednesday, in fact, the supposed collaboration between Trump and Vladimir Putin occupies prime turf as the paper’s lead editorial. It’s time to pull the plug on this nonsense.

The narrative that the Russians are trying to manipulate our election in favor of Mr. Trump has proved vital cover for the damaging emails released by Wikileaks that indeed show election manipulation – by the Hillary Clinton campaign.

Will Trump pivot on immigration? Here are four ways to move the needle and make it work

Liz | 08/23 at 08:07 PM

Donald Trump is pushing back against claims that he might change his stance on illegal immigration. Earlier, he was expected to propose a new approach on Thursday in Colorado; now that speech has been cancelled. Still, there is speculation that, following his meeting with members of a new Hispanic advisory committee over the weekend, he might back off on plans to deport the 11 million people who are in the country illegally.

I say, go for it.
