Donna Brazile’s revelation that the Hillary Clinton campaign co-opted the Democratic National Committee during the primaries was fairly devastating news to those still hoping for a Hillary 2020 run. The primaries being “rigged” further distances Bernie supporters, who provide all the energy in the party, from the Democrat establishment.

The District Court in Hawaii recently granted yet another injunction against a Trump Travel Order, in that case Travel Order No. 3. In light of prior Supreme Court stays of similar injunctions, the Hawaii District Court Order was plainly ridiculous. I noted at the time:

In numerous prior posts we have followed the tortuous process of getting Trump federal judicial nominees confirmed. Democrats have thrown down every procedural delay possible, even for nominees they didn’t oppose.

What Democrats fear is that Trump will take advantage of the historic opportunity handed him to reshape the federal judiciary for a...

A year ago almost to the day, we covered a dispute involving Oberlin College students and a local bakery, Gibson’s Bakery.

The Oberlin students, with the support of some faculty and staff, accused the bakery of racial profiling three Oberlin students who were arrested for shoplifting. Those three students eventually pleaded guilty,...

I saw it on Facebook. So it *must* be true. Betsy DeVos’s days are numbered, she’s on her way out, the swamp won.

The rumor was given a big boost when Salon.com ran an Alternet story about it.

Remember the meeting Donald Trump, Jr. had with the Russian lawyer, Natalia Veselnitskaya? The meeting that Veselnitskaya arranged on the promise of dirt on Hillary Clinton, but which appears to have been just a means of lobbying Trump on the Magnitsky Act.

Ronan Farrow, who did as much as anyone to rip the lid off the Harvey Weinstein sexual harassment/assault scandal, has another eye-opener. And the subject is superstar lawyer David Boies, who among other things, represented the plaintiff in the Supreme Court case on same-sex marriage.

Elizabeth Warren is not Native American.

Her claims to be either Cherokee or Delaware have been thoroughly refuted by a team of Cherokee genealogists who tracked Warren’s family ancestry. Even Warren’s so-called “family lore” stories are in serious doubt.

During the 2016 campaign, there had been a lot of social media speculation about Hillary Clinton’s health. That speculation was ridiculed as conspiracy theories and fake news.

But when Hillary stumbled and almost fell during the 9/11 memorial, the conspiracy theories didn’t seem so conspiratorial anymore. We all remember the infamous video, Clinton...
