I was not able to watch James Comey’s testimony today live, as I was in the car much of the day.

I was able to listen to the first hour and a half on terrestrial radio, as so many AM stations were carrying it that I was able to keep tuned even...

It’s understandable why everyone is focused on The Greatest Show on Earth, the appearance of James Comey before the Senate Intelligence Committee on Thursday, June 8, 2017.

But barring some surprise testimony not in Comey’s prepared statement, the hearing will merely confirm “bad” news for Trump already leaked to the press –...

The official statement (pdf.) from James Comey, to be read during the hearing tomorrow, has bombshells — but they are helpful to Donald Trump. The statement is embedded in full at the bottom of this post.

Comey confirms — contrary to media reports — that he told Trump that Trump was not personally...

On Thursday James Comey will testify before the Senate Intelligence Committee.

It will be the Greatest Show on Earth that day, broadcast live by every major network:

“The Young and the Restless” will be preempted by a different soap opera on Thursday. The star will be former FBI director James B. Comey.

Elizabeth Warren has claimed at various points in her life to be Native American, most notably when she was climbing the law professor ladder. When she got tenure at Harvard Law School, she dropped the self-identification.

By all available evidence, Warren’s claims are false.

Warren never has come forward with any credible evidence,...

Early this morning Donald Trump launched a twitter storm regarding the issue of the Executive Orders regarding visa entry to the U.S. from 6 (originally 7) majority Muslim nations previously identified by the Obama administration as posing unique security risks.

We’ve written a lot about the attacks on progressive professor Bret Weinstein at Evergreen State College. He was accused of racism by student activists for opposing a proposal to ban white people from campus for a day, a move he condemned as impermissible racism.

In a bizarro world that is today’s campus,...

IF the U.S. Supreme Court wants to weigh in quickly on the legality of Donald Trump’s Second Executive Order temporarily barring new visa entries on people from six high-risk countries, SCOTUS has an opportunity to do so.

Jerusalem is the capital of Israel.

The U.S. Embassy is in Tel Aviv, and a consulate in Jerusalem.

Trump promised during the campaign to “move” the Embassy to Jerusalem. A physical move isn’t actually needed, the Jerusalem Consulate could simply be redesignated at the Embassy. Most of the diplomats enjoying their beautiful beachfront...

Hillary Clinton was interviewed at the CodeCon 2017 forum today.

She was asked a lot of questions about her loss in the election

Not surprisingly, she blamed sexism and misogyny as a big part of her problem.

I have written a lot about “intersectionality” theory, particularly how it is used to single out Israel by making Israel the nexus of all oppression in the world regardless of the issue:

Every real or perceived problem is either blamed on or connected to Israel.
