President-elect Donald J. Trump "doesn't know much," former President Bill Clinton claimed last week. "One thing he does know is how to get angry white men to vote for him." Clinton's insult may be the highest-level Democratic dismissal of Trump's victory as the rancid fruit of a white-supremacist campaign. Clinton's barely concealed message is: "Racists elected Trump, so his agenda must be stopped." Nice try. Trump did win the votes of 62 percent of white men, according to national exit poll data. Let's assume, for argument's sake, that they all were angry.
NEW YORK — Congratulations to President-elect Donald J. Trump. Never having run for so much as city council, he tried his hand at politics and, in his very first campaign, scored Earth's most powerful office. He did so by beating the amalgamated might of the Clinton and Obama machines — two of the most capable and accomplished political operations in U.S. history.
"Drain the swamp!" GOP presidential nominee Donald J. Trump has insisted before huge, increasingly confident crowds. But this slogan does not capture the urgency of the moment. This one does: "Flush the toilet!" Washington's corruption under Obama and Clinton has devolved to fetid depths suggestive of the days before indoor plumbing. Step back and shudder at today's unsanitary state of public affairs. The Cosa Nostra-like tone that Hillary Clinton has set for herself and her associates suggests a preview for The Godfather: Part IV.
NEW YORK—Hillary Clinton's critics correctly warn that she could name one or more justices to the U.S. Supreme Court. But that would be just a start. As conservative activist Richard Viguerie has argued for years: "Personnel is policy." A President Hillary Clinton would nominate hundreds of people to top positions that require Senate approval. She would hire hundreds of thousands of others and unleash them to perpetrate Hillaryism—a toxic blend of lies, elitist interventionism, secretive paranoia, and snarling contempt for the law.
NEW YORK — "You're fired!" Donald J. Trump's signature line should become the title of a major speech promising a clean-break from Washington, D.C.'s stagnant status quo. Trump should demand accountability in America's consequence-free capital. Federal employees routinely do whatever they like. Either through rank incompetence or unbridled hubris, they fail to do their jobs and squander the hard-earned funds of America's overworked taxpayers. And for this, they either keep their jobs or—even worse—enjoy promotions and bonuses.
NEW YORK — Hillary Clinton spent six years on the Senate Armed Services Committee—from 2003 to 2009. Given this experience, it defies all belief—as Clinton claimed to the FBI—that she knew nothing ... nothing about classified documents, how they were marked, or even that she should clam up about human intelligence agents.
TEMECULA, Calif. If Never-Trump Republicans succeed on Election Day, Donald J. Trump would return to real estate, his political dreams shattered. Hence, the bigger headline on Wednesday, Nov. 9, would read: "HILLARY CLINTON ELECTED 45th PRESIDENT." A President Hillary Clinton would be Obama with a work ethic. Rather than slack off on putting greens, she will dedicate her impressive work ethic to turbocharge Obama's policies, America be damned. Thus, here is some of what to expect if Never Trump triumphs:
FBI Director James Comey announced Tuesday that 2,113 classified e-mails were discovered among Hillary Clinton’s multiplicity of servers and devices. When Clinton mishandled them, 113 were classified, including 37 Secret...
NEW YORK -- The morning after Great Britain’s June 23 Brexit referendum, former London mayor and perhaps future prime minister Boris Johnson said British voters “decided that it is time to take back control from a European Union that has become too remote, too opaque, and not accountable enough to the people it is meant to serve.” Sound familiar? The same could be said about Washington, D.C.’s distant, stealthy, impervious bureaucracy. Just as Britain Brexited Brussels, America should Amerexit the Beltway.
In a communique to donors (who else?) Clinton campaign chairman John Podesta tried to exculpate his candidate’s lawbreaking in the Emailgate scandal. Alas for Hillary, Podesta’s attempt at exoneration has more holes than a golf course.
