Readers have likely already seen montages of major Dems lavishly praising FBI Director James Comey after he announced in July that he wouldn’t be recommending the indictment of Hillary Clinton. Those same Dems turned on Comey with a vengeance when this past Friday he announced that the FBI was looking into...

Last week, my beloved husband took me on a much needed birthday vacation in Maine.

Despite the fact that I was trying to ignore the 2016 election insanity for a brief time, I couldn’t entirely escape it.

Here’s one plausible scenario for Cruz’s prospects in a general election. It’s worth reading the whole thing, but here’s an excerpt:

…[T]he assumption is that Cruz cannot improve his image among the broader electorate, but that’s hard to know for sure, because he’s never had to do it. While opinions on Clinton...

I realize that at this point polls don’t matter too much, if at all. But they still interest me, because they’re the best evidence we’ve got about public opinion. They can also tell us something about trends, and the trend for Hillary right now appears to be down.

The newest national poll ...

I have the deepest respect for Thomas Sowell and his work, and this column of his is no different:

It is easy to understand why there would be pent-up resentments among Republican voters. But are elections held for the purpose of venting emotions?…

Elections…have far more lasting, and far more serious — or...

We all know that Hillary Clinton is the first female frontrunner candidate of a major party. That is, she’s long been the frontrunner, and remains the frontrunner, although who knows how long that will continue.

I believe that the only thing that can stop Clinton is an indictment, or...

Hillary’s email delete-o-rama and foreign funding issues aren’t going away as quickly as the Clinton’s had hoped.

Left without anyone on the bench, the Democratic party is scrambling at the eleventh hour to cobble together a contingency plan.

Then, out of (relative) obscurity emerged the most generic, milquetoast, cisgendered candidate conceivable...
