Hillary Clinton (Associated Press/File)

'Psychotic' Hillary and her lyin' team would make Machiavelli blush

Hillary Clinton is a liar. She has terrible instincts. She doesn't believe in anything. Her head is broken. She doesn't know why she should be president. She is pathological. And she is psychotic. Just ask everybody who works for her. Just ask campaign chairman John Podesta. Just ask the people working the hardest to get her elected president. Published October 27, 2016

Donald Trump must spend rest of campaign talking about Hillary Clinton

From the start of this crazy, wild election, Mr. Trump's campaign slogan could have been, "Well, you can screw it up."

Despite all the slime and party traitors, Donald Trump still has a chance

Donald Trump has had a rough couple of weeks.

Yet, Mr. Trump is still standing. Published October 18, 2016

Bush vs. Clinton redux in 2016

It was always going to be this way: Bush vs. Clinton 2016. From the very start, the media tried to rig this election to be a showdown between the Republican Party's polite and uptight Bush clan and the Democratic Party's shameless and self-serving Clinton mafia. Published October 12, 2016

Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton, donning her martyr's veil, claims to be under siege from American right-wing groups. (Associated Press)

Don't cry for me, America

Before you shed a tear for Hillary Clinton -- ensnared yet again in a web spun by the Vast Alt-Right Wing Conspiracy -- remember this: There is no "femme" without "fatale." There is no martyr without sacrifice. There is no shattered glass ceiling without broken shards of glass. Published August 29, 2016

"The amounts involved, the favors done, and the significant number of times it was done require an expedited investigation by a special prosecutor immediately, immediately, immediately," Donald Trump said. (Associated Press)

Trump drives agenda while Hillary hides behind jokes

Never in modern American political history has a more issue-oriented, serious candidate for president faced off against a more dishonest, platform-less, self-absorbed celebrity who is cashing in on ill-gotten wealth and fame despite serious concerns about mental and physical health.
