This is a tough time to be a progressive.

There is a widespread mental breakdown in nests of radicalism, like Ithaca. I take no pleasure in that. Seriously. Come on you guys, seriously, no joy whatsoever.

I’m not like John Ekdahl.

The comment by Joy Behar that one party hasn’t controlled the presidency, House and Senate since G.W. Bush is wrong — for two years under Obama Democrats controlled all three, with a filibuster-proof majority in the Senate until Scott Brown’s election in January 2011.

We all know how devastating the loss of the presidency is to Democrats, particularly when combined with Republicans holding the Senate and House.

But, it was equally bad, if not worse, for Democrats at the state level.

In the past 8 years Republicans have made devastating gains at the state level, taking over numerous state...

The networks have called it.

Hillary conceded on a phone call.

Here is the current map. Trump likely will get even more electoral votes in the end.

This race is too close to call.

A shift in any state could change the outcome. The Real Clear Politics No-Toss Ups map (Featured Image) has Hillary winning by a few electoral points.

She could win by a few, lose by a few, or win by a lot. It’s that volatile.

Overall, she’s up...

Rush Limbaugh refers to CNN as the Clinton News Network. The emails obtained (hacked?) from the DNC and Podesta email accounts demonstrate how true that is.

The DNC, which was supposed to be neutral in the Democratic primary, was all in for Hillary, as previously reported. Also, CNN commentator Donna Brazile, who...

I think this is quite good.

Frank Luntz had a focus group on 60 Minutes, focusing on the anger in the electorate.

The anger went in every direction — at the candidate, society and each other.

It’s one of the best focus groups I’ve seen. I think Luntz’s observation that there’s just a thin...

If it were anywhere other than UNESCO, I’d say this sick attempt to rewrite history would surely fail.

But it’s UNESCO, which has been attempting to scrub the Jewish history of the Temple Mount. It’s part of the global antisemitic propaganda war against Israel that invents a fictitious ancient “Palestine” that never...

There are countless stories of liberal media enemies-of-the-week, innocent citizens who make one errant comment or tweet and...
