In the midst of the eruption of near-daily scandals involving the Obama administration, let us not forget that until just a few months ago, Hillary Clinton was the most significant persona within that administration besides the president himself. Let us not also forget that notwithstanding the scandal-grenades going off all around us, Mrs. Clinton diligently plans her run for the presidency, even while several of those scandals are obviously and entirely her responsibility, exposing the State Department during her tenure as an utter sewer of corruption, cronyism, and fatal incompetence.
Comments: This is a great summary of the scandals and destruction Hillary has brought upon the country over her decades in politics. We need to be well armed with this information as she prepares her campaign.
She obviously has no shame or accountability genes, no sense of right or wrong. When you turn your back on all things good and decent I think maybe God takes away some of your small but critical parts and allows you to climb to high positions. He knows that without a moral compass they will make complete fools of themselves. At least that seems to be how it is working. The Godless have become quite full of themselves, but payday is coming.
Hillary Clinton´s legacy should get her 25 to life at a minimum!!! Imagine this hideous hog once again pilfering the White House´s valuable history, filling in the missing pieces that she was unable to steal the first time around??? You mean that the Resolute desk has historical value as apposed to being a hamper for some rather large pant suits???
Ok great. We need to defeat the PIAPS. Are the Hi Fo voters (that´s us, remember?) ready to get on the same page and uniformly and without hesitation, ready to fight the ground game needed to defeat this liberal stronghold?
We have a three-front cultural war on our hands. Sufficiently crippling the msm, piaps (politically, that is), and launching the mother of all conservative campaign ground games is what lies ahead for us. And we will need detailed strategic plans, backup plans, and plans to backup the backup plans. All depends if we are willing to move past the "see, I told you so" mentality because one´s preferred presidential candidate did not get nominated.
Remember, the progressive intelligencia has had our number and is dialed in now how to control us. Are we now willing to get the progressives´ number and re-gain control over them? Hillary´s legacy of scandals will disappear from memory unless we write the book. Brown´s piece puts it all on the table.
Isn´t it funny how Hillary´s House of Horrors includes associations with a whole host of convicted liars, drug dealers, money laundering, tax evasion, worthless check writers, people that commit securities fraud, Medicare fraud, Medicaid fraud, wire fraud, voter fraud, bank fraud, Government fraud, tax fraud, mail fraud, corporate fraud, telephone fraud (anybody see a common theme here?), forgery, racketeering, perjury, armed robbery, theft, interstate transportation of stolen vehicles and murder? This is why I maintain Fraud Hillary and Bill, the Weenie-Wagging Pants Dropper and Thief, really aren´t husband and wife as much as they are simply criminal business partners. The dishonesty of this morally bankrupt, thoroughly corrupt pair is only exceeded by their unbridled greed! Just ask the countless victims they have left in their wake over the decades!
Does anyone remember the ´pretty in pink´ news conference Hillary held, during some major world distraction? She did some lying, saying that on the Castle Grande real estate development, which was fraudulent, she didn´t know about it. She said a lawyer at Rose, a young associate, did the legal work, but wasn´t allowed to bill in his own name, so she billed for the work. (36 hours, by the way.) She spewed lie after lie, and nothing happened. She lied before the federal grand jury, and Starr´s replacement detailed her lies, but said he could not get a conviction in D.C. against her, so he didn´t charge her with perjury. The Clintons have always been money-hungry, while simultaneously denying that fact. Bill said that he wore a 30 dollar wristwatch, which proved that he was not interested in money, but when he left Arkansas as governor, he convinced the Arkansas legislature to sweeten the retirement formula for governors. And in 2001, Bill and Hillary stole contents of the White House, shipping them to NY. She is as repugnant as her daughter, and now the Clinton Foundation provides the three of them as much tax free money as they want to spend. And a lot of the money donated to the Foundation came from middle eastern oil princes, which was a pre paid bribe to Hillary.
Dodge Boy is right! If we want to take back our country, we must be prepared to fight. We cannot sit back and tell ourselves that this administration is so bad no one would vote to put another Democrat in office (that worked in 2012 right?). They are tapping our phones and hacking our computers. They are threatening their voters if they don´t turn out. We on the other hand can´t get behind a consensus candidate! Work your heart out in the primaries and then support whomever the most of us wants. It is not selling out your principals to vote a moderate if the opposition has a Barack or a Hilliary. It is selling out your principles if you allow a permanent liberal socialist country!! That is what Obama is currently campaigning for-rather than attending to his scandals! Wake up folks.
If Karl Rove and the Republican elites pick Jeb Bush and Marco Rubio for their ticket Hillary ´WILL´ be the next president of the Washington criminal cabal residing there now. I´m not voting Republican anymore. My knees are too distorted by scar tissue from all the glass I´ve crawled over. Never again.
I hope the Republicans save a juicy nugget of truth about Hillary for just the right moment. If they spill everything now, it will have little effect later on and she´ll say "I addressed those issues long ago and what difference does it make now." She needs to be caught off guard and unscripted.
Has everyone forgotten this? The White House FBI files controversy of the Clinton Administration, often referred to as Filegate, arose in June 1996 around improper access in 1993 and 1994 to Federal Bureau of Investigation security-clearance documents. Craig Livingstone, director of the White House´s Office of Personnel Security, improperly requested, and received from the FBI, background reports concerning several hundred individuals without asking permission. The revelations provoked a strong political and press reaction because many of the files covered White House employees from previous Republican administrations, including top presidential advisors
The gutless, Ruling Class Republicans in DC could destroy Hillary if they wanted to, Obama as well. They don´t want to.
We´re in the midst of a disastrous, failed "social experiment" now, and it looks like we´re going to embark on another one in 2016. It´s probably a good thing that there will be nothing left for her to destroy.

Sorry to tell you this, folks - - but "we" are not going to regain our country - - because "they" have us vastly outnumbered.
The commies have taken over every nonprofit institution - - especially education - - and they´ve created generations of robotic dopes who are as ill-informed as the brainwashed North Koreans who weep on cue whenever one of their brutal oppressors gains room temperature.
None of The PIAPS´ scandals matters one whit to those idiots. Like the lower beasts - - they have no concept of what freedom and the rule of law mean. They only want to be fed at the government trough - - and nothing else matters.
It´s time to stop thinking that there are masses of Americans who are just like us. Because there aren´t. We´re the dinosaurs - - and they´re the cockroaches.
Unless she develops some kind of very serious medical problem, she will be POTUS. It won´t matter what she looks like. From the very beginning of the 2016 election cycle she will be the presumed heir apparent. If Jeb Bush even gets involved in the primaries, the republicans won´t have even a flicker of a chance. Most non-republicans who see a Bush flinch instinctively.
I have always thought that there was something fishy about the way the Clintons stepped aside to let Obama get the nomination. It seemed like an All-Star wrestling smack with the folding chair. It has been my theory all along that Hillary ( Bill´s just along for the ride and the chicks) knew that Obama´s skin color, stagecraft and script reading ability could put policies in place that she could not as witnessed by her failure to take over one sixth of the economy with government run healthcare- just to name one goal of this power hungry socialist hag.
One thing she lacked , for those who weren´t yet comfortable having a woman as CIC, was foreign policy experience. She didn´t and couldn´t accomplish anything of substance as Sec of State but that doesn´t matter because those around her were always planning to make it look like she had. LoFos actually think that the constant updating of the odometer reading on her flying party bus meant something.
The two terms of Obama and perhaps four for Hillary will go down as one of the greatest tag team bouts in history
The legacy of the Clintons. From a trailer park in Hope to the Whitehouse and on to Westchester, never a day of private work, just pay as public "servants". Now multi millionares. Kind of like the 0bamas Something wrong with this picture.
#30 - I thought of that as well. She at the age of 27 was a young lawyer appointed to the prosecution of Watergate. She was fired by her boss who was a life long Democrat, for unethical, unlawful, and unprofessional behavior. She was hiding files back then.
She hasn´t changed a bit. Her devotion to Alinsky and the ´ends justifies the means´ has only grown over the years.
The IRS issue could be the straw we are all looking for. Let´s hope so.
Benghazi, Fast n´ Furious, the Boston murders, The sex issues, heck she not only can´t remember anything, but she doesn´t know how to answer the 3AM red phone call. We know there is a whole list of issues.
"What does it matter" - she doesn´t have a son or daughter in service of this country, but a lot of us do. It does matter!
So just how big a tyrant is Madame Rodham-Clinton?...Here´s what the Pantsuit Marxist from Park Ridge had to offer on March 27,2009, upon receiving The Planned Parenthood Federation Of America´s "highest honor," THE MARGARET SANGER AWARD in Houston, named for a woman who wanted to eliminate "the unfit" from the human race......."I admire Margaret Sanger, her vision...I am really in awe of her."
Hitlary will be history´s first previously impeached nominee for president. As America´s very first past co-president, she is virtually responsible for all the crimes murders of the Clinton administration: mass killing of the family at Waco, the death list of over 125 Clinton associates, known as "The Body Count", where deaths occurred violently, mysteriously and unexplainedly, so many deaths, none of them ever solved. A powerfully documented mass crime in Arkansas of smuggling uncountable millions of cocaine into nearby Mena, the mystery, high security airport in the forest, giant world class planes delivering drugs night and day, and governor Slick Willie making his Bush bones, overseeing laundering all the money right there with the silent watch of Hitlary Terry Reed’s COMPROMISED is all about Mena, Roger Morris’ PARTNERS IN POWER devotes a full, brilliant chapter to Mena. All of it proving, that like Benghazi, Hitlary knows how to stay out of the picture. She’s the best at death, crimes, obfuscation, ruin. #12 Uno is great! #15 bigfat slob right on, and #25 Devan, nails it describing the horrifying brutality of Clinton ordering the family murders at Waco. Every American who is not a socialist or communist needs to tell the world of this endless list of crimes (there are three dozen books) co-committed by this soulless, elderly creature that obsesses for president. She can win if a deadened GOP nominates a Jeb (son of the king) or a straight con man, cheat, deceptive amnesty liar like Marco. Loser, Marco is the newest fraud representing the losing GOP side. Hitlary’s ace in the hole, silent co-president, news actor Diane Sawyer.
And yet with God all things are possible. So, could there be a Revival of American values and truth? How might it happen? I can imagine: 1. Billy Graham dies, leaves major testament or revelatory statement leading to Revival. 2. Obama is impeached and removed. Truth spilled from Snowden or other leaks include his indictable personal documents. SCOTUS voids all his destructive work. 3. Major international figures humbled, repent of their drive for fame and money [see Samuel Taylor Coleridge epitaph], convert, touch hearts of lo-fos. Big shake-up. 4. Artists, poets, journalists, Hollywood change their political minds -- fall in love with the idea of America again. Homosexuality back in the closet. We see better deeper straighter songs, hymns, plays, virtue led propaganda -- from the POV of traditionalists who are back bone of a tough, cool place. 5. States walk back drug legalizations -- maybe out of some new health related concern. 6. Conservatives get elected in droves. Catholic church refuses communion to proponents of "murder." Boehner, Pelosi and company out in disgrace. 7. England, Germany Switzerland [not France]lead in a great Christian Reformation. It soon comes here. 6. Intellectual women raise their standards for the sake of their children. 7. Younger generation -- child is the father of the man style -- lead in renaissance of some sort. Maybe disallow prove evolution without God alone as "passé." 8. No? Then perhaps, and God forbid, we have such an existential crisis that we have no other choice but to pray for forgiveness and the restoration of the sound American mind and ethos. And we get it back that way. Stupidly and slow.
One must always recall accounts of the standing order during Bill´s reign to avert eye contact with Herself in the White House and environs on pain of dismissal. What would be the standing order if Herself was the boss instead of just the wife?
I´m still listening for solutions (most of what I read is just outrageous justified) griping, and the only possible relief is prayer!
When 47% of our voters pay no income tax, and get to vote on taxpayer-funded entitlements (the popular vote), what other possible result could there be? The last paragraph in #24´s is quotable, and I plan to do just that -- If you don´t mind your car getting trashed, it would make a hell of a bumper sticker!
I also remember Craig Livingstone and the FBI files he stole for her. I remember her friend Sandy Berger who stole data from the National Archives and hid it down his pants. I also remember her lies about Juanita Brodrick. Oh, yes, I remember it all. Thanks for reminding others.
My favorite line in Mr. Jeffrey Brown’s excellent article was the one describing Mrs. Clinton’s unusual reaction to her husband’s infidelity by her describing it as, “ministering” to Monica Lewinski. That kind of lawyer-speak-and-spin is an integral part of Mrs. Clinton’s character.
Let us not forget the unrelenting disrespect that Mrs. Clinton showed our military personnel going back to her days as First Lady. Mrs. Clinton was dismissive and rude toward her personal security detail; she lied about the military protection afforded her in Bosnia (remember that she lied about having to duck sniper fire as she disembarked from her plane); she was tolerant of the snotty anti-military behavior of her then 12 year old daughter; she publicly uttered the insulting, “General Betrayus” comment, etc., etc., etc.
Throughout her career of “service” she has failed to support and protect our military and indeed has repeatedly and carelessly placed them in harm’s way. That anyone is even considering mentioning her as a future Commander-in-Chief is indicative of the un-American ethical and moral chaos and decay that is permeating this nation, unchecked.
Thanks to all posters! Please God, this woman never sees the inside of the Oval again. Keep this article to address and convince others later.
One of the ways impact the next elections is to contact the RNC. Return all their stupid mailings and surveys in their prepaid envelopes and tell them exactly - in heavy Sharpie writing - why you will not put up with more wishy-washy candidates, you won´t send them any more money to do the right thing until they stand ALL the dems back on their heels, including the RINOs among the party. Demand that they embrace Tea Party candidates. Actually, you don´t know how empowered you are. It´s so sad when good people like Michele Bachmann will not run again.
We must take back our country - pray and work hard and then pray some more. IHLG
P.S. I don´t like to see these articles run on a summer weekend. Too many people are out of place. Think a rerun the first of the week?
Annapolis Alderman Ross Arnett has been fielding angry calls from as far as California since Sunday, when it was reported that the Democrat would move to sharply curtail the power of the mayor, days after the city elected the first Republican to the job in 16 years. "I am getting hate calls from all over the country on this. … I can´t believe it. They´re calling me a fascist," said Arnett, backing off statements that he wants to shift to a form of government that would reduce the mayor to little more than a ceremonial role. Arnett said he has supported changing
When Samir Qamar practiced concierge medicine at Pebble Beach Resorts in Monterey, Calif., the hotel´s "A-list clientele" paid $550 to see him and as much as $30,000 a month to keep him on retainer. But last year, Dr. Qamar decided to abandon VIP medicine and pursue a no-frills version of his practice, charging just $59 for monthly membership to his MedLion clinics (16 locations in five states) and $10 a visit—and never billing insurance. Dr. Qamar is part of a new and growing generation of concierge doctors who, in this era of health reform, see more opportunity in the middle class
Dave Wilson, a conservative white Republican, figured he had little chance of winning a seat on the Houston Community College Board of Trustees. After all, his opponent was black, a 24-year incumbent named Bruce Austin. And the vast majority of voters were black Democrats. But the results from Tuesday´s election are now in -- and Wilson won. "I´d always said it was a long shot. No, I didn´t expect to win," he told Houston´s KHOU news channel. Wilson, an anti-gay activist and former fringe candidate for mayor, said he ran for the school board´s seat because he was upset with "all the
On Tuesday, Colorado voters wisely rejected Amendment 66, which would have pumped almost $1 billion in new taxes into the state’s wasteful and inefficient public-school system. The amendment had powerful supporters from all corners of the education establishment – the teacher’s unions, the governor, almost every elected Democrat, Michael Bloomberg, Arne Duncan, the Gates Foundation, and many others. Remarkably, nearly two-thirds of Colorado voters still rejected Amendment 66. It’s a gratifying demonstration that the political class, for all its wealth and influence, can still be defeated by ordinary citizens exercising the vote. But sometimes citizens don’t get any vote at all. A
BALTIMORE — Deadly diseases, once nearly wiped out, are making a frightening comeback in Maryland and across the country. Now — a warning that parents who don’t vaccinate their children are putting others at risk. Linh Bui explores an alarming and controversial trend. Measles, mumps, whooping cough — all deadly diseases. Until recently — virtually eliminated thanks to vaccines that prevent kids from getting sick. But now doctors see an alarming trend — more and more people are coming down with these diseases. “Kids die from measles on a regular basis. Kids are in hospitals and can die from whooping
When we contemplate public schools, two things are certain. Almost everyone agrees that the schools are not as good as they should be, given the huge effort and expenditure. Second, everyone has a theory. (Snip) College teachers casually mention these days that they have incoming students who don´t know what 6 x 7 is. How could such a thing happen? It all makes sense if you study Reform Math for even a few minutes. This curriculum -- actually, Reform Math consists of a dozen parallel curricula such as Chicago Math, Connected Math, Everyday Math, TERC, etc. -- explicitly discourages mastery of
The most alarming message for Democrats from Tuesday´s elections was the near obliteration of Terry McAuliffe´s lead over Ken Cuccinelli in Virginia. (Snip) Yet in Virginia´s 34th District, just outside Washington, a very conservative delegate was able to run between 8 and 18 points ahead of Cuccinelli and win. And that was a district that went for Tim Kaine for senator and Barack Obama just a year ago. Barbara Comstock is as conservative as any right-winger could desire -- pro-free enterprise, pro-life and pro-Second Amendment. Her opponent, Kathleen Murphy, a doctrinaire liberal, was supported by the unions, Michael Bloomberg, NARAL and Planned
As the GOP continues its navel-gazing and soul-searching in response to the defeat of Ken Cuccinelli in Virginia’s Gubernatorial race on Tuesday, The Heritage Foundation remembers that in order to defeat one´s opponents, one must first understand them. And nobody understands the left better than David Horowitz. Horowitz has spent the bulk of his professional life dissecting the workings of the American left. As a former member in good standing, he has a unique perspective on how it operates and, more importantly, how to defeat it. On November 12, Horowitz will bring that perspective to The Heritage Foundation to discuss the launch
Politics ‘have reached civil war levels’…” was the headline on the Drudge Report the other day. It linked to a story in National Journal quoting Sen. Tom Harkin as saying, “We are at one of the most dangerous points in our history.” It quoted Sen. Ted Cruz likening the Republican moderates to the appeasers at Munich. (Snip) Yet another quoted the Senate’s chaplain as saying “Lord, deliver us from governing by crisis.” If that’s what the Lord is going to do, I say, let Him read Mark Levin’s new book, The Liberty Amendments. It is a brilliant compendium of changes
Wasn’t me! That’s the claim the accused operator of the underground black market website “Silk Road” — which peddles methamphetamine, heroin and other illicit drugs in exchange for the virtual currency Bitcoins — made in Manhattan federal court Wednesday. “The evidence will establish that he’s not the person who the government says he is,” said lawyer Joshua Dratel after his client Ross Ulbrict had his first appearance in a New York courtroom since being busted by the FBI in his hometown of San Francisco last month in the largest-ever seizure of Bitcoins. Dratel described Ulbrict,
NEW YORK — The man accused by the FBI of running a billion-dollar online market for illegal drugs, who allegedly also paid hit men to murder people threatening his business, was no trigger-happy junkie. He was an Eagle Scout who earned an advanced degree in physics from Penn State University before abandoning academia to pursue a career in finance. Ross Ulbricht, 29, who was arrested Oct. 1 in San Francisco and imprisoned in Oakland, Calif., appeared Wednesday in federal court in Manhattan. U.S. Magistrate Judge Ronald Ellis ordered Ulbricht, who is charged with narcotics
Judicial Watch has long been on the trail of the corruption and deceit that were part and parcel of former First Lady Hillary Clinton’s National Taskforce on Health Care Reform. I’m pleased to report that we have scored another breakthrough, pulling back more the veil of secrecy in which the Clintons have long shrouded their most famous policy failure. On October 17, 2013, thanks to Judicial Watch litigation, the public gained access to more than 57,000 pages of previously withheld documents from the Clinton Presidential Library related to the “cabinet-level” taskforce chaired by former First Lady Hillary Rodham Clinton during the
In a recent interview with BBC News, Oprah Winfrey said that President Obama is disrespected because he is an African-American. "There’s a level of disrespect for the office that occurs. And that occurs in some cases and maybe even many cases because he’s African-American," Winfrey said. "There’s no question about that, and it’s the kind of thing nobody ever says but everybody’s thinking it." Speaking with the BBC´s Will Gompertz in the UK to promote "The Butler," Winfrey also spoke to the global issue of racism. "It´s gotten better. Are there still places where people are terrorized because of the color of their
President Obama announces today that he supports a “fix” for Obamacare that would allow some Americans to keep the healthcare plans they already had for an additional year. That was already built into the Affordable Care Act aka Obamacare law. It’s not an actual change to anything, it’s just an attempt to get out ahead of the bills that Republican Fred Upton and Democrat Mary Landrieu are sponsoring in the House and Senate that would legislatively “fix” Obamacare. It’s an exercise in blame-shifting, and an abdication of leadership. As news of the plan leaked, skepticism spread.(Snip for tweets)Barack Obama’s credibility
To paraphrase Oscar Wilde, you’d have to have a heart of stone not to laugh at the unraveling of Obamacare. First, the obligatory caveats. It is no laughing matter that millions of Americans’ lives have been thrown into anxious chaos as they lose their health insurance, their doctors, their money, or all three. Nor is it particularly amusing to think of the incredible waste of time and tax dollars that has gone into Obamacare’s construction. And the still-unfolding violence that this misbegotten legislation will visit on the economy and our liberties is not funny either. This very magazine has been downright
Desperate times call for desperate measures, so on Thursday one desperate President, Barack Obama, attempted to sell the idea that he had found a way to keep his Obamacare pledge: “If you like your insurance plan, you can keep it.” This exuberantly delivered and oft-repeated sales pitch for the program that has dominated his presidency “ended up not being accurate,” as Obama mincingly put it. He had no choice — not when health insurers complying with his regulations have canceled policies for millions of Americans. Not when those newly uninsured cannot buy coverage using Obama’s botched website. Not when congressional Democrats are panicking
Oprah Winfrey, one of the most powerful women in the world, declared she would not be stripping off her lingerie to get ‘buck naked’ on screen. The billionaire TV tsarina and occasional actress was speaking to me about her role in director Lee Daniels’s movie The Butler, in which she plays Gloria, wife of a White House butler played by Forest Whitaker. Gloria becomes bored with her middle-class life while her husband’s off looking after ‘that other family in the White House’. Oprah said that after a while Gloria starts to drink, and fools around with a neighbour, played by
In his 2007 biography of Barack Obama, Obama: From Promise to Power, Chicago Tribune reporter David Mendell described the exchange he had with then-Illinois state Sen. Barack Obama just minutes before he delivered the keynote address at the 2004 Democratic National Convention in Boston: After Obama and I slipped through a security checkpoint and he momentarily broke free from the entourage, I sidled up to him and told him that he seemed to be impressing many people of influence in this rarefied atmosphere. Obama, his gaze fixed directly ahead, never broke his stride. “I´m LeBron, baby,” he replied, referring to LeBron
On Wednesday, Senator Mark Udall (D-CO) introduced a bill in the Senate that would allow Americans to keep their health insurance plans for a limit of two years. “I have repeatedly said that the Affordable Care Act isn’t perfect,” Udall said, “and it will need to be improved as it is implemented.” Udall already wants to push off the open enrollment deadline on the Obamacare health exchanges until the end of May. But Udall’s plan isn’t the only one in the offing. Senator Mary Landrieu (D-LA) has introduced the “Keeping the Affordable Care Act Promise Act,” co-sponsored by Sens. Dianne
“Even if it takes a change to the law, the president should honor the commitment the federal government made to those people and let them keep what they got.” — Bill Clinton, Nov. 12 So the former president asserts that the current president continues to dishonor his “you like your plan, you can keep your plan” pledge. And calls for the Affordable Care Act to be changed, despite furious White House resistance to the very idea. Coming from the dean of the Democratic Party, this one line marked the breaching of the dam. It legitimized the brewing rebellion of panicked
On Thursday, President Obama conducted the “Springtime for Hitler” of press conferences. He came out at noon and proceeded to blather his way through an hour of self-justifications and evasions and apologies and complaints. And as he went on, you could almost see America reacting as the audience in “The Producers” did to the happy-talk number about Adolf romping at his retreat in Berchtesgaden — with gaped-mouth astonishment. First, he said he had not been “informed directly that the Web site would not be working.” What on earth does that mean? Was he somehow informed indirectly? In an affronted tone, the president
The current troubles of the Obama presidency can be read back into its beginnings. Rule by personal charisma has met its proper fate. The spell has been broken, and the magician stands exposed. We need no pollsters to tell us of the loss of faith in Mr. Obama´s policies—and, more significantly, in the man himself. Charisma is like that. Crowds come together and they project their needs onto an imagined redeemer. The redeemer leaves the crowd to its imagination: For as long as the charismatic moment lasts—a year, an era—the redeemer is above and beyond judgment. He glides through crises,
Something is seriously wrong with conservatism. Since Ronald Reagan’s last year in office, Republicans have only twice won a majority of votes cast for president—both times with a George Bush atop the ticket. And neither Bush was a conservative. For 25 years, something has prevented conservatives from winning the White House and prevented the Republicans who do win from governing as conservatives. What could it be? The Tea Party has an answer: RINOs—liberal Republicans in Name Only—have sabotaged the right, most recently in October when they collaborated with Democrats to raise the debt ceiling and end the government shutdown. Once RINOs are
President Obama’s former spiritual advisor Joshua DuBois joined The O’Reilly Factor to talk about his new book, “The President´s Devotional: Daily Readings That Inspired Obama.” He told Bill O’Reilly, “The president’s a committed Christian and his faith is a really important part of his life. Every single morning for the last six years he’s woken up and read these devotionals to try grow closer to God and closer to his neighbors as well.” DuBois recalled going with the president to visit Reverend Billy Graham. “He doesn’t wear this stuff on his sleeve. That’s not the kind guy he is, but he
