ELECTION: If not Hillary, then who will run?

The mainstream media and progressive political pundits have already created a slobbering love affair with Hillary Clinton and have anointed her as the guiding light of the Democratic Party in 2016. She is out blabbing about her new book, appearing on every talk show, putting herself in the spotlight and talking like a presidential candidate. Yet she has not announced her intentions.

The question is: If not Hillary, then who can it be? Joe Biden? He’s a walking, talking gaffe machine. Harry Reid? They’ll need a corkscrew to bury him because he is so crooked. Elizabeth Warren? She is too

BENGHAZI: Where is the mainstream media?

Scandals come and go. Some are here to stay. Benghazi is one of them. Four Americans died in a terrorist attack on our embassy in Libya. The Obama administration has announced it will not cooperate with a congressional investigation. This is outrageous and should insult every American. This administration lied to us to get re-elected.

Where are ABC, CBS, NBC, CNN and MSNBC? The only news outlet covering this is Fox. Even The News Tribune avoids covering this story. There was a three-paragraph minor story buried on the back pages. It was generic and carried no weight or significance. The

BENGHAZI: Emails point to political cover-up

Remember Benghazi, Libya, on Sept. 11, 2012? It was six weeks before a hotly contested presidential election for Barack Obama. Four Americans were killed including Ambassador Chris Stevens.

Susan Rice, United Nations ambassador, went on five major news talk shows to assure the American people this attack was a response to an Internet video and not a terrorist act. After all, both Obama and Vice President Joe Biden campaigned with the slogan, “GM is alive and bin Laden is dead.” This was a blatant lie and produced to protect Obama with no reference to his foreign policy failures.

PRAYER BREAKFAST: TNT does hit pieces on Roy Moore

Re: “Guess who’s not coming to breakfast” (TNT, 5-1).

The mayor of Tacoma and liberal City Council members are a disgrace with their childish boycott of the annual Pierce County Prayer Breakfast because the featured speaker is Alabama Chief Justice Roy Moore.

Of course our liberal News Tribune does a third hit piece on Moore, who actually has the courage to stand up for what he believes contrary to others who just “take their ball and go home” when things don’t go their way.

Pair this with the TNT’s lack of coverage of the bombshell email about Benghazi and

OLYMPICS: Russian hosts deserve our gratitude

It’s difficult to believe I’m thanking Russia, as there has been very little I’ve liked about Russia, let alone Vladimir Putin, but they did keep our athletes, their families and fans safe during the Sochi games.

I wish I could feel the same if the U.S. was the one providing the security even though we have the best and strongest military in the world and our CIA is second to none. Unfortunately, they are both controlled by our present administration and State Department. They couldn’t even provide proper security for our American consulate in Benghazi.

Thank goodness our athletes were

BENGHAZI: TNT failed to give the entire story

Re: “Benghazi safety woes ignored, new report says” (TNT, 1-16).

The News Tribune left out eight paragraphs at the back end of the article concerning the terrorist attacks that killed four Americans including Ambassador Christopher Stevens in the Benghazi disaster.

It excluded the eight paragraphs that identify a few who have been held responsible, such as Hillary Rodham Clinton. Some of which is totally left out in the TNT publication states,”According to the CIA, at least 15 people supporting the investigation or otherwise helpful to the United States have been killed in Benghazi since the attacks.”

The TNT has

GATES: Critic’s concern about honor misplaced

Re: “Gates’ ‘Duty’: An honorable man’s act of dishonor” (TNT, 1-14).

I find it fascinating that Cass Sunstein is so concerned with Robert Gates’ honor. After all, Sunstein does note that almost all cabinet-level employees have published tomes regarding their service.

If Gates’ honor is under scrutiny here, perhaps President Obama’s should be as well.

Did Obama breach the trust of the Border Patrol during the Fast and Furious affair? Or how about conservative/libertarians with the IRS scandal? Or how about the four dead Americans that he said were killed because of some obscure video that riled up the

OBAMA: Leadership gap creates feeling of gloom

I can’t remember a time when such a feeling of gloom has permeated America, and in large part it is because most of us have come to strongly doubt or outright disbelieve what our president tells us or fails to tell us.

The Benghazi cover-up was so blatantly bogus that I almost felt sorry for Susan Rice for having to try to make it sound believable that a movie had led to the massacre of four American citizens. And of course we didn’t retaliate for fear of angering other Muslim terrorists who already hated our guts.

Then we were supposed
