Making America Sane Again
November 30, 2016 | WND.com | by Jack Cashill

In the three-plus weeks since the election I have had some twenty or thirty conversations with other Trump voters, some in person, some by phone, all of them out of earshot of our sensitive Democratic friends.

Although my evidence is entirely anecdotal, my sample has been diverse enough for me to feel confident in rejecting the consensus of the chattering classes on the reasons behind Donald Trump’s surprise victory. . . [more]

As quickly became clear in last week’s skittish interview with Donald Trump, the top dogs at the New York Times worry more about rising sea levels than they do about shrinking circulation.

The Times hysteric-in-chief, Thomas Friedman, sounded the alarm.  With his first question, he referred to an article he had written days prior warning Trump that indifference to climate change could turn his “oceanside [golf] courses into ocean-floor courses.” Joking, Trump suggested a rise in sea levels just might increase the value of his Doral golf course given that it is about ten miles inland. . .

In the Clinton White House, it was pay to play all the way.

Hillary's Big Fat Lie on Late-term Abortion
October 20, 2016 | AmericanThinker.com | by Jack Cashill

Having reviewed the records of the late and unlamented George Tiller, I can assure readers that Hillary Clinton absolutely misrepresented the reality of late-term abortion.

 In fact, roughly 95 percent of the late-term abortions performed by Tiller, then America's most prolific abortionist, were done for the convenience of the mother and/or the statutory rapist who impregnated her.

Uh, Hillary, Your Hubby Caused the 2008 Recession
September 28, 2016 | AmericanThinker.com | by Jack Cashill

On the debate stage Monday night, Hillary Clinton smugly repeated the big lie that Democrats have been telling with something close to impunity since 2008.

“We had the worst financial crisis, the Great Recession, the worst since the 1930s,” said Hillary. “That was in large part because of tax policies that slashed taxes on the wealthy, failed to invest in the middle class, took their eyes off of Wall Street, and created a perfect storm.”

Bully Boy Clinton’s Lip-Biting M.O.
January 6, 2016 | WND.com | by Jack Cashill

A long time columnist for the Kansas City Star, Mary Sanchez is old enough to remember and recount certain details of the Clinton presidency.

In a recent column, Sanchez scolded Donald Trump for his “vulgarity and brutishness.” Wrote Sanchez, “His modus operandi is to bully.” How dare he call out Bill Clinton for being “unfaithful to his wife,” she asked, especially given Clinton’s “stellar” record on women's issues.

Like so many liberal women, Sanchez has been unwilling to acknowledge Clinton’s history as a sexual bully. . .Click link to read more . . .

The accusers insist that resistance is born out of hatred—of blacks, of gays, of immigrants, of Muslims, of women, of poor people, even, yes, of Mother Earth. And woe to that hater who publicly defies the orthodoxy du jour. . .Click link to read more . . .

Why Marilyn Mosby Must Go
May 6, 2015 | WND.com | by Jack Cashill

Click here for more . . .The answer as to why Baltimore state’s attorney Marilyn Mosby (left) must go is simple enough: she has consistently shown herself unwilling or unable to put justice before race.

She has also conspicuously failed to grasp the idea that “justice” is due the accused, not the mobs howling for the heads of the accused.Click link to read more . . .

So What Race Is April Pikes?
May 1 , 2015 | AmericanThinker.com | by Jack Cashill

Jeremiah MatthewsOn Tuesday of this week, April 28, an incident took place in a Houston Wal-Mart that should have made national news. It hasn’t. In fact, the story has scarcely left Houston.

The nature of the incident could not be more topical. Jeremiah Matthews, 23, attacked Houston Community College police officer, April Pikes, with a hunting knife while she moonlighted as a security guard. Matthews stabbed Pikes fourteen times, tried to pull her gun, and would likely have killed her had not store patrons intervened. As it is, Pikes had to undergo a six-hour surgery, remains in intensive care, and may lose an arm. Police have charged Matthews with attempted capital murder.Click link to read more . . .

The Clintons’ Other, Truly Bodacious Mine Boondoggle
April 27, 2015 | AmericanThinker.com | by Jack Cashill

The New York Times reported this week on the unseemly transfer of cash from parties interested in a major uranium deal to the Clintons. The Canadian company selling Uranium One to the Russians donated $2.35 million to the Clinton Foundation. And Russians tied to the deal gave Bill Clinton $500,000 for a Moscow speech.

Last week, out of the blue, the New York Daily News ran a story headlined, “Former Obama pilot: TWA Flight 800 was not blown up by a faulty fuel tank; it was shot down. I’ll always believe that, and here’s why.”

For the record, this 747 blew up off the coast of Long Island on July 17, 1996, killing all 230 people on board. The author, pilot Andrew Danziger, is convinced that the plane was shot out of the sky.Click link to read more . . .

What The Unearthed 1995 Video Tells Us About Obama
April 16, 2015 | AmericanThinker.com | by Jack Cashill

A professionally shot video of Barack Obama from 1995 has recently surfaced. Shot at the Cambridge Mass. Public Library, the video captures a skinny, youthful Obama promoting his then newly released memoir, Dreams from My Father,

In this hour-long presentation, Obama openly talks about his relationship with his mentor, Frank Marshall Davis, a Communist and pornographer. Perhaps more importantly, Obama gives us a much clearer picture about who he was in 1995, on the cusp of his political career, than we had seen before.Click link to read more . . .

Hillary’s Baggage Train: Part 1, Indonesia
April 15, 2015 | WND.com | by Jack Cashill

No presidential candidate in History has raced to the White House with more baggage than Hillary Clinton. For those too young to remember—and those in the media too eager to forget—allow me to air some of that baggage out.

***

In the November 1994 mid-terms, Democrats lost fifty-two seats in the House and eight in the Senate. Mario Cuomo lost. House speaker Tom Foley lost. Popular Texas governor Ann Richards lost to underdog George W. Bush.

Bill and Hillary Clinton caught the blame. After days of anger and self-pity, they began to focus again on the one principle that had directed their lives to date-getting Bill re-elected. . .Click link to read more . . .

The GOP’s Formidable Starting 5
April 8, 2015 | WND.com | by Jack Cashill

You might not like their individual moves, but the likely top five in this year’s Republican primary field is Duke to the Democrats’ (2-28) San Jose State.

Would that the Dem’s only player of note had been a one-and-done, but wily veteran Hillary Clinton plods on to the bitter end, hoping that someone somewhere will finally draft her.

Clinton, in fact, is more than five years older than the oldest of the Republican starting five. . .Click link to read more . . .

Pro Football Is Good for Your Health
March 22, 2015 | AmericanThinker.com | by Jack Cashill

Those who follow sports today understand that the sports media are as sissified as the news media. The result lately has been an unending stream of soft-core Marxist articles about the dangers of pro football.

I say “Marxist” because the articles and TV features almost inevitably pit manipulative money-grubbing owners against hapless exploited players.Click link to read more . . .

Does the Left Want a Race War?
March 18, 2015 | WND.com | by Jack Cashill

Many of us who did not vote for Barack Obama in the 2008 presidential election found some solace in the notion that Obama’s presidency, if nothing else, would ease racial tensions.

The poll numbers suggested the same. In the month of Obama’s inauguration, 79 percent of whites and 63 percent of blacks held a favorable view of race relations in America, something of a high water mark in recent history.

Those paying close attention, however, saw reason to worry. . .Click link to read more . . .

"There should not be a shred of doubt by now,” Obama told the told the American Israel Public Affairs Committee in March 2012. “When the chips are down, I have Israel's back."
