#RiggedSystem: Debate proves media part of banana republic vote

Elections are about power: who has it, who doesn’t. Until this year, we were told that the candidate with the most money would win. Why? Because money buys negative ads to influence an uninformed electorate. Who keeps the electorate uninformed? The national media. When I started to work as a reporter in the early 1980s, […]

Explosive Project Veritas undercover video reveals Clinton camp mischief

Remember the “violent protests” that shut down a planned Trump rally in Chicago in March? Or the anti-Trump protests that closed a road to a Trump event in Arizona? There was nothing spontaneous about them. They were just following “a script of engagement” written by paid Clinton campaign operatives, according to an explosive new undercover […]

Did Hillary Make Unauthorized Release of Classified Information on Bin Laden Raid?

In its initial release of hacked emails from Clinton campaign manager John Podesta last Friday, Wikileaks included an extraordinary document so full of revelations that journalists are still finding new material in its depths. Among the most explosive are quotes from a Nov. 4, 2013 speech to London Drugs in Toronto, Canada, where she appeared […]

The media elites feel that shiver up the spine — and it’s not victory

You know a candidate is in trouble when she deflects softball questions about her policies to talk about her opponent’s character. Hillary Clinton’s phony “press conference,” where she took six questions from friendly reporters and filibustered nearly half of the time to trash-talk Donald Trump, shows a candidate and a campaign that is disintegrating in […]

THE TURKEY-RUSSIA-IRAN AXIS: Dramatic developments alter the strategic balance in the Middle East

A tectonic shift has occurred in the balance of power in the Middle East since the failed Turkish coup of mid-July, and virtually no one in Washington is paying attention to it. Turkey and Iran are simultaneously moving toward Russia, while Russia is expanding its global military and strategic reach, all to the detriment of […]

Huma Abedin’s ties to the Muslim Brotherhood are no joke

The Clinton campaign is attempting once again to sweep important questions under the rug about top aide Huma Abedin, her family ties to the Muslim Brotherhood and to Saudi Arabia, and her role in the ballooning Clinton email scandal. The New York Post ran a detailed investigative piece over the weekend about Ms. Abedin’s work […]

Iran takes Obama’s ransom and then takes more hostages

Surrounded by his yes-men at the Pentagon on August 4, President Obama, with trademark smugness, hammered the media and his political opponents for claiming that his $400 million cash payment to Iran in January was tied to the simultaneous release of four American hostages. “We do not pay ransom for hostages,” the President declaimed. Just […]

Fact Check: Were Obama and Hillary Founders of ISIS? You Bet!

Even the left-stream media is now acknowledging that Donald Trump “has a point” when he blasts Hilary and Obama for creating ISIS. “Hillary Clinton is vulnerable. ISIS did gain strength during her time as Secretary of State,” said ABC News correspondent Martha Raddatz. Conservative talk show host Hugh Hewitt tried to give Mr. Trump an […]
