Obama really said this Wednesday night: “I can say with confidence there has never been a man or woman — not me, not Bill, nobody — more qualified than Hillary Clinton to serve as president of the United States of America.” You don’t say, Mr. President? So why don’t we size up her, uh, qualifications, eminent as they might be, compared to some of the prior, lesser 44 occupants of the office. Dwight Eisenhower was the Supreme Allied Commander. Hillary ran the Bimbo Eruptions Unit. Thomas Jefferson wrote the Declaration of Independence. Hillary wrote “It Takes a Village.” Teddy Roosevelt
Well, Hillary Clinton took the stage after four days of Democratic triumph — the party staged what was even to these conservative eyes and ears the best, tightest, most interesting convention of our time — and pretty much stunk up the joint. Her speech was a Jell-O mold of a sort my Aunt Millie used to make — blandly gelatinous in flavor and texture with little pieces of boilerplate left-liberal policy suspended in it like peach chunks from a three-week-old can. I can’t think of another one of these events when the presidential candidate’s acceptance address ended up solidly in the

Ann Althouse writes a perceptive commentary (hat tip: Instapundit) on an aspect of Hillary Clinton that bothers me a lot, too: that wide-open-mouth/insane-elation thing with her face Specifically, she analyzes a still photo of President Obama onstage with her at the Wednesday night session of the DNC: (photo)She explains the really weird facial expression this way: …my theory was that she´s stuck making the best of doing appearances where she needs to look like the person who is intensely loved but she does not believe she is loved.

A federal appeals court has struck down North Carolina’s voter identification law, holding that it was “passed with racially discriminatory intent.” The ruling also invalidated limits the same state law placed in 2013 on early voting, same-day registration, out-of-precinct voting, and preregistration. The three judges assigned to the case — all Democratic appointees — were unanimous that the Republican-controlled North Carolina legislature violated the U.S. Constitution
Bill Clinton apparently fell asleep during Hillary Clinton’s speech Thursday at the Democratic National Convention in Philadelphia. Sitting in between Tim Kaine and Chelsea Clinton, Bill grabbed some quick shut eye while Hillary Clinton talked about ISIS. The former secretary of state was saying, “We will disrupt their efforts online to reach and radicalize young people in our country. It won’t be easy or quick, but make no mistake – we will prevail.” Apparently, Bill Clinton did not prevail over the desire to sleep.
When you read this, sip slowly, dust off the way-back machine, and think about those who have surfaced visibly to support Hillary Clinton. Including “retired” U.S. General John Allen (retired in 2012), who was previously brought out of retirement to lead President Obama’s fight against ISIS in 2014. In order to understand the scope of the relationships it takes understanding the full back story. Stay with it…. The question posed to the Tree House back in 2014 was: Why is the White House selecting a retired General John Allen, instead of a current commanding officer to lead Obama’s anti-ISIS efforts?
In his first response to a searing charge from bereaved Army father Khizr Khan that he’d “sacrificed nothing” for his country, Donald Trump claimed that he had in fact sacrificed by employing “thousands and thousands of people.” He also suggested that Khan’s wife didn’t speak because she was forbidden to as a Muslim and questioned whether Khan’s words were his own. “Who wrote that? Did Hillary´s script writers write it?” Trump said in an interview with ABC News’ George Stephanopoulos. “I think I´ve made a lot of sacrifices. I work very, very hard.” On the last night of the Democratic
Donald Trump lashed out at a fire marshal who directed crowds of people into another room after an auditorium at the University of Colorado where he was speaking reached maximum capacity. Trump said Brett Lacey, a 23-year veteran fire marshal in Colorado Springs, was ´probably a Democrat´ who didn´t know what he was doing before spiraling to the conclusion: ´That´s why we´re going to hell.´ Lacey, who was recognized in February for his service after a 2015 shooting at a Planned Parenthood clinic, said he was merely concerned with public safety. Trump spoke for nearly an hour at the Gallogly Events Center
(Video) CNN is pushing back on claims that one of its lead news anchors was seen celebrating Hillary Clinton´s historic nomination for president Thursday night, calling the accusation "absurd." A video circulating online shows anchor Wolf Blitzer dancing to Neil Diamond´s "Sweet Caroline" while drinking from a glass and waving his hands in the air, apparently at the network´s CNN Grill in Philadelphia. "CNN celebrates Hillary: Blitzer toasts speech, dancing, party!" reads a headline at the conservative Drudge Report, linking to the video. But a CNN spokesman said Friday that Blitzer was not showing bias toward the Democratic nominee, only
Remember the 1950 movie, All About Eve? In that classic tale of ambition and treachery which won six Oscars, an ambitious Broadway wannabe, Eve Harrington, played by Anne Baxter, connives to push aside and replace an established star, Margo Channing, played by the legendary Bette Davis. In the film, Eve is described, cuttingly and accurately, as having “contempt for humanity… [an] inability to love and be loved, insatiable ambition,” and, yes, “talent.” So what does that have to do, you might be asking, with Megyn Kelly? At Breitbart News, we’ve been following, with dread fascination, Kelly’s relentless rise, and rise, and rise.
Donald Trump says the fall debate schedule is "unacceptable," raising the specter that he may try to skip them. In a tweet on Friday night, Trump incorrectly said that Hillary Clinton and the Democrats are "trying to rig the debates." In fact, the fall debate schedule was determined almost a year ago by the nonpartisan Commission on Presidential Debates, a private group made up of both Republicans and Democrats. RNC chief strategist Sean Spicer invoked criticism of the commission on CNN Saturday morning, saying "The entire system needs to be relooked at." The commission responded to Trump on Saturday by
CHICAGO -Courts dealt setbacks to Republican efforts in three states to restrict voting, blocking a North Carolina law requiring photo identification, loosening a similar measure in Wisconsin and halting strict citizenship requirements in Kansas. The rulings Friday came as the 2016 election moves into its final phase, with Republican Donald Trump and Democrat Hillary Clinton locked in a high-stakes presidential race and control of the U.S. Senate possibly hanging in the balance. North Carolina is one of about a dozen swing states in the presidential race, while Wisconsin has voted Democratic in recent presidential elections and Kansas has been solidly
