This could be make or break week for Hillary Clinton. She still has the money, the name recognition, and the big donors, but her sinking poll numbers say the public is finally on to her, and besides, who wants the distractions of another round of Flem Snopes and his kin in the White House?
1. Monica Lewinsky: Led to only the second president in American history to be impeached.
At tonight’s Democratic presidential debate, Hillary Clinton will play up her left-wing bona fides in an attempt to revitalize her campaign. That’s extra difficult this time around when her main opponent, Bernie Sanders, is an avowed socialist.
At 10 p.m. local time on June 25, 1996, a 3,000-pound truck bomb was detonated along the perimeter fence of the Khobar Towers Housing Complex in Dhahran, Saudi Arabia.
In a 1941 Life magazine article, Henry Luce, a publishing magnate once described as “the most influential private citizen in America,” coined the phrase, “the American Century” to advance his vision of America becoming a benign global superpower that would use its influence to build a new world order based on political and economic freedom.
Not many people make a habit of carrying large amounts of cash around. After all, thieves could steal it. How ironic, then, that a growing threat to your money is the people you’d call if your money was stolen: the police.
I’m glad someone has a full-time job in America. The problem is it’s the left turning our young people into whining, and for many, functionally illiterate victims.
My 13-year-old son told me at the dinner table the other day that Franklin Roosevelt was one of America’s “greatest presidents” because “he ended the Great Depression.” He’s usually a good student, so I checked where he got this tripe and sure enough the fairy tale was right there in his American history book.
In the wake of videos exposing its involvement in trading fetal organs, Planned Parenthood has resorted to a “silver lining” defense. The taking of brains, hearts, lungs and livers from the unborn, even the delivery of intact fetal bodies to commercial middlemen, is hailed as a valid scientific procedure. The words “treat and cure” are used.
As an American citizen living in Jerusalem, I recently received two notifications from the U.S. State Department warning of “potential for violence in the Old City,” restricting U.S. government employees from entering the Old City from Sunday, Oct. 4 through Tuesday, Oct. 13 “without prior approval from the U.S. Consulate,” and recommending that “private U.S. citizens take into consideration these restrictions and the additional guidance contained in the Department of State’s travel warning for Israel, Jerusalem and the West Bank when making decisions regarding their travel in the Old City and in Jerusalem.”
South Sudan faces grave challenges, but a fragile and hopeful democracy is developing.
It’s a bad deal for America and should be rejected by Congress.
Perhaps it’s not fair to blame Barack Obama for the mess he’s making. The Middle East is where chaos was invented, after all, and perhaps not even the collection of incompetents and boobs the president has installed in the White House could make things this bad. Maybe it’s someone else’s fault. He blames the Jews.
The Russians are rapidly reinforcing their bridgehead in Syria, adding ground troops to their air, marine and naval forces. It is a classic air, land and sea intervention by a military establishment that understands how combined arms build synergies and broaden capabilities.
Hillary Rodham Clinton flip-flopped this week on the Pacific Rim trade deal she once embraced but now opposes under political pressure from her party’s extreme left wing.
