‘Clinton Cash’ Exposes the Clintons’ Past – and the Obamas’ Future

No doubt, you’ve seen the documentary or read Peter Schweizer’s Clinton Cash. The latest edition, Clinton Cash: A Graphic Novel (Yes, it’s all still true.), should be the final nail in the Clintons’ overflowing coffin of corruption. The book brought the evidence, and the movie has been watched more than two million times. The graphic novel, now available at Amazon and other retailers, brings the story of corruption to life by delving into the Clintons’ systematic and lucrative schemes with fantastic art and a huge dose of humor.


Milo and ‘Bad Gays’ Upset Media at LGBTrump Party

Last week over 500 people gathered in Cleveland at the LGBTrump party. Guests included prominent gay Republicans Milo Yiannopoulos, columnist and frequent Fox News guest Chris Barron, and Jim Hoft (aka Gateway Pundit), as well as LGBT allies such as Pamela Geller, Geert Wilders, and myself.


Michelle Obama’s Father’s Day Message: ‘Be Better’

Despite what you’re seeing on every cable network, on the cover of every newspaper, and as the lead story on every website, the White House has an important message for women and it isn’t about terrorism and radical Islam. It’s about “gender inequality” in America.


Gwyneth Paltrow and the Fear-Based Women’s Media

Spin Sisters gives readers an insider’s view (similar to Bernie Goldberg, author of the liberal media exposé Bias) of the “members of the female media elite, a Girls’ Club of editors, producers, print and television journalists with similar attitudes and opinions who influence the way millions of American women think and feel about their lives, their world, and themselves.”

Millennials: The Curated Generation

A few weeks ago I accidentally found myself surrounded by millennial college students. I was walking by the Verizon Center in Washington D.C. after the Georgetown vs. UNC-Wilmington basketball game when I overheard a group of millennials talking.

8 Books to Give This Christmas

I love to read books, but I really love to give books. They’re easy to wrap. They’re usually under $20. And they can be shared and reread for years to come. Here are some books that are worth getting for friends, family and yourself this Christmas.


Preview of Tonight’s Democratic Debate

At the last Democratic debate, only one candidate, Sen. Jim Webb, named an enemy who is not an American company or organization. Less than a week later, Sen. Webb dropped out of the race. So that answers the question of how long dissenters last in the Democratic party.

A ‘Modern Man’ vs. a ‘Man’s Man’

Recently the New York Times featured an article on what makes a modern man. Predictably, there was a lot to make fun of in the article. National Review took one of the first cracks at addressing each point.

In Defense of a Gawker Media Writer (No, Really!)

I follow Erin Ryan on Twitter and I’m pretty familiar with her sense of humor. I also did a great interview with her before CPAC this year. She saw fit to give a Breitbart contributor and former CPAC Director nearly 2,000 words to talk about the conservative movement on Jezebel. How bad can she be?


Lessons from Comic Con: All Politics is Loki

It’s not enough to be at the conservative conferences (and I say that as the former director of CPAC). I’m not talking about setting up shop at a Comic-Con with a bunch of [Candidate Name] 2016 buttons and GOP tchotchkes. I’m talking about letting them know we’re willing to engage.

This piece is about one similarity in particular: how the media portrays Comicon and the Conservative Political Action Conference’s (CPAC) relationship with women.
