She’s as charming as a bulldozer at full throttle. It’s hard to explain why she’s not the second coming of Richard Nixon or a female version of Vito Corleone. But here she is, again, running for the presidency, again.
We’re told her nomination is inevitable. But as former Maryland governor Martin O’Malley said, a candidate is inevitable until she’s not. She’s one of the most qualified people ever to run for president so she doesn’t need to be vetted, her pals in the media tell us.
She’s all about a “new beginning” she says, which will be kind of tough for her to pull off. She’ll have to run against Obama’s record which she played large part in creating. There was, once upon a time, a mayor of New York – Robert Wagner – who once ran against his own record on a “reform” ticket so it’s not impossible for her to do the same.… Continue Reading
Robert R. Reilly, author of the highly controversial (and suppressed) book, Making Gay Okay, says the capitulation of the Republicans to the homosexual lobby seemed to begin under President George W. Bush, when General Peter Pace was hung out to dry for expressing his view that homosexuality is immoral. That was in 2007.
Pace, who also condemned adultery at the same time, “was not backed up by anyone in the Bush Administration,” including the president, Reilly noted. Yet, Pace made a statement “that would have been considered standard at any other time in our history,” Reilly added.
Reilly made these comments to me during an interview about his book, which describes the transformation of the homosexual rights movement from a request for tolerance into a cultural conquest.… Continue Reading
Republican U.S. Sen. Ted Cruz, the 44-year-old Canadian-born Texan who is now just in his third year as a U.S. senator, announced during a speech earlier this week at Liberty University in Virginia that he is running for his party’s nomination for president. He thus has the distinction of being the first major candidate from either party to announce an official candidacy. Cruz said in his announcement today, “I believe in the power of millions of courageous conservatives rising up to reignite the promise of America, and that is why today I am announcing that I’m running for president of the United States.”
There is little doubt that Cruz’s “first out of the gate” announcement was intended to differentiate him from the many other Republicans who are lining up to run, and to gain the news coverage that comes from being first.… Continue Reading
We’re glad to know that the American people recognized how bad this could be, hiding government e-mails on a private server without oversight, and it was reflected in a recent CBS poll. Her favorability ratings have gone down to 26%, which is not a good thing for a presidential campaign that hasn’t officially started.
This article was originally posted at the Accuracy in Media website.
Yesterday afternoon, U.S. Senator Ted Cruz (R-Texas) announced that he will mount a bid for president of the United States. The announcement makes Cruz the first Republican to declare candidacy for 2016.
Cruz is a favorite Tea Party members because he has routinely challenged the GOP establishment. He is also a favorite of pro-life advocates and other social conservatives who want political leaders who are willing to uphold the true definition of marriage.
His speech announcing his presidential bid was held at Liberty University in Virginia. Cruz did not shy away from his faith or the politically incorrect topics of abortion, marriage redefinition, fighting radical Islam and supporting Israel.
A retired doctor who worked for the state for less than five years is now collecting a pension of more than $150,000 per year.
Critics said it’s a perfect example of why Illinois’ pension system is broke. However, the doctor is firing back saying don’t blame the retirees getting the money.
“I feel blessed. I don’t feel as though I’ve milked the system or anything like that,” said Dr. Renee Hartz.
Hartz has drawn lots of attention over the years for her trailblazing career as a cardiac surgeon. Now, she’s drawn the attention of pension expert Bill Zettler, who literally wrote the book on Illinois’ broken pension system.
“Five years and a pension of 150-thousand dollars. It’s outrageous,” Zettler said.… Continue Reading
In a sanctimonious and dramatic way, U.S. Senator Dick Durbin recently took to the Senate floor to attack Republicans for holding up the nomination of Loretta Lynch as U.S. Attorney General, saying:
And so, Loretta Lynch, the first African-American woman nominated to be attorney general, is asked to sit in the back of the bus when it comes to the Senate calendar. That is unfair. It’s unjust. It is beneath the decorum and dignity of the United States Senate.
Ironically, Senator Durbin is perpetuating the very thing that he (and other Leftists) tend to obsess about: Race and racism.
By focusing on the nominee’s skin color instead of her qualifications, Durbin departs from the example and the wisdom espoused by our nation’s most prominent civil rights leader, Dr.… Continue Reading
“Not Rahm.” “Anybody But Rahm.” “Any Alderman Who Is Not A Stooge For Rahm.” Those were the clear victors in the Feb. 24 municipal election.
Chicago’s heretofore esteemed mayor, Rahm Emanuel, has been absolutely, totally, completely humiliated. His gargantuan ego has shriveled. The scope and size of his rejection is breathtaking.
Chicago has 1,421,430 registered voters and a population of 2,695,598. On Feb. 24 in the nonpartisan mayoral election, 472,126 people voted. The mayor, against four lackluster, underfunded opponents — Chuy Garcia, Bob Fioretti, Willie Wilson and Dock Walls — managed to garner 214,988 votes (45.5 percent of the total cast), after having spent almost $30 million. His combined opponents’ vote was 257,158, 42,170 more than his vote.
Consider the enormity of Emanuel’s rejection: 79.9 percent of Chicago’s eligible voters either didn’t vote or didn’t vote for him.… Continue Reading
