The Donald's Madhouse Candidacy Will Implode, Right?

I don’t know what date you’ve got in your when-will-the-Donald-finally-implode pool, but there’s a lot of smart money down on Debate Night, Aug. 6. As The New York Times put it, Thursday’s Debate Night is – in a word — huge. Huge for Trump, and maybe for the other guys, too. The thinking is that when Trump supporters actually see the Donald being the Donald during an actual debate about who leads the free world,

Despite Bombing, Islamic State Is No Weaker Than a Year Ago

WASHINGTON (AP) -- After billions of dollars spent and more than 10,000 extremist fighters killed, the Islamic State group is fundamentally no weaker than it was when the U.S.-led bombing campaign began a year ago, American intelligence agencies have concluded. U.S. military commanders on the ground aren't disputing the assessment, but they point to an upcoming effort to clear the important Sunni city of Ramadi, which fell to the militants in May, as a crucial

Uber Exposes Politicians as Middlemen, Not Leaders

Politicians are often accused of pandering and rarely wage public fights against things that are popular with their voters. That’s what makes the willingness of politicians to take on Uber and the sharing economy all the more puzzling. Why on earth do they want to antagonize the tens of millions of Americans who benefit from the Uber service as consumers and drivers?  New York Mayor Bill de Blasio is the latest to get burned

Hillary Clinton's Unsavory Past Returns–With Sharp New Teeth

"Those who cannot remember the past," the philosopher George Santayana reminded us, "are condemned to repeat it." The young, particularly the young voters of 2016, have no memory of Bill Clinton, and we're all about to be treated to "a little deja vu all over again." The many sexual misadventures of Bill, who was the Bill Cosby of his day, and the excuses and enabling behavior of Hillary Clinton on his behalf, will come not

Clinton in Free Fall

I have polled Hillary Clinton's national favorability for the past 25 years and I have never seen it drop to its current level of 40 percent. Not ever. Her recent crash (to 40 percent favorable, 51 percent unfavorable in the July 30 Quinnipiac Poll) means that she is essentially in free fall, having lost a net of 16 points of favorability in Quinnipiac polls since November of last year. Here is the record of her

Which 'Senior Official' Smeared Hillary Clinton?

In the aftermath of that famously discredited New York Times story about a "criminal referral" regarding Hillary Clinton's emails, a few important questions stand out, among many that remain unanswered. Exactly who told Times reporters Michael S. Schmidt and Matt Apuzzo that the referral to the Justice Department -- concerning whether information in her emails that wasn't classified should have been -- was a matter for criminal investigation? And when will the Justice Department track

Desperate Dems Recycle Planned Parenthood's Mammogram Lie

The gruesome hits keep coming for the baby butchers of Planned Parenthood. President Obama and his top health officials have one last-ditch response left:__ Quick, hide behind the imaginary mammogram machine! As more graphic, money-grubbing undercover videos of Planned Parenthood's for-profit aborted baby parts racket emerge thanks to the investigative work of the Center for Medical Progress, desperate Democrats are in full deflection mode. U.S. Secretary of Health and Human Services Sylvia Mathews Burwell defended

'Twas The Week Before The Debate

WASHINGTON -- I feel like a kid the week before Christmas. There's just one present under the tree, but it's all a columnist could ever hope for: the first Republican debate! How could next Thursday night in Cleveland fail to be one of the most entertaining political spectacles we've seen in a long time? There are, far as I can tell, 17 candidates for the GOP nomination. Nobody's quite sure which 10 will qualify for
