Hillary is in bigger trouble than we thought

The Obama administration has admitted that some of the emails that were on Hillary Clinton's private server and accessible to the nation's enemies are "too sensitive to be released under any circumstances."

22 of them were classified "Top Secret" and at least one came from human intelligence.

Hillary is being investigated by the FBI concerning possible charges of "gross negligence" and "public corruption." They are operating under the assumption that there are still unsecured copies of some of the emails still "out there."

It will be nothing less than fascinating to see whether or not the Justice Department pursues charges against the former Secretary of State even if the FBI recommends them. Given the condition in which Hillary Clinton's indictment would leave the Democratic party, the temptation to find some excuse not to act will be strong.

Since Bernie Sanders is not a credible nominee, it will be fascinating to see what the Democratic party does if Clinton is forced out of the race.   Martin O'Malley, Joe Biden, and Elizabeth Warren are names that come to mind. Clearly the party is in turmoil and was it not for the fact that the GOP seems intent on committing suicide by nominating Trump or Cruz a Republican victory in November would appear likely at this point.

A historic election which seems to be falling into the Republicans' laps may well be lost because of addictions to a man who models people's worst instincts and one whose track record suggests that he would rather be a wrecker than a president.

Jan Chamberlain's rhetoric is too strong. But the stand she has taken is right.

I do not share the religion of Jan Chamberlain. I don't even pray to the same god. But I can't help but admire the integrity of the woman who quit the Mormon Tabernacle Choir rather than sing at Donald Trump's inauguration.

Ms. Chamberlain, like me, voted for Evan McMullin in November. Like me, she holds no brief for Hillary Clinton or her agenda. But she cannot, as she put it, "throw roses at Hitler."

As I've said before, comparing Trump to Hitler strikes me as harsh. I believe that Trump is a power-hungry narcissist who exhibits disturbing signs of psychopathy, like Hitler. Like Hitler, he has stigmatized  defenseless minorities- Muslims and undocumented aliens, rather than Jews- and made them scapegoats for the nation's troubles. Like Hitler, he has ridden a wave of irrational hatred and emotion to power. Like Hitler's, his agenda foreshadows disaster for the nation he has been chosen to lead.

But he's not going to set up death camps for Musli…

Neither Evan McMullin nor his movement are going away

Evan McMullin has devoted most of his post-college life- even to the point of foregoing marriage and a family- to fighting ISIS and al Qaeda and our nation's deadliest enemies as a clandestine officer for the CIA. He has done so at the risk of his life.

He has seen authoritarianism in action close-up. One of his main jobs overseas was to locate and facilitate the elimination of jihadist warlords. Evan McMullin knows authoritarians.

And when he looks at Donald Trump, what he sees is an authoritarian like the ones he fought overseas. He knows Donald Trump. After leaving the CIA he served as policy director for the Republican majority in the United States House of Representatives. He tells about his first encounter with The Donald in that role in this opinion piece he wrote for today's New York Times.

In fact, when Mitt Romney and Tom Coburn and all the others who were recruited to run as a conservative third-party candidate against Trump and Hillary Clinton backed out,  McMulli…

Huzzah! Once again, 45 does something majorly right!

First. he appointed Neil Gorsuch to the Supreme Court, and now 45 has- at long last- initiated a sensible space policy, with a plan to promote a "rapid and affordable" return to the moon carried out by private enterprise by 2020.  Afterward, it will be onward to Mars and beyond.

This is a great idea for three reasons. First, private enterprise is the future of space exploration, and as far as I know we will be the first spacefaring nation to put most of its eggs in that basket. Second, it's nice to have eggs! Since the Obama administration canceled the Constellation program to develop the Ares booster and the Orion crew vehicle (though it subsequently reinstated the Orion part of the program), the United States has been twiddling its thumbs while China has taken great leaps toward the moon and other countries- including Russia, India, and Japan- have to various degrees intensified their own space programs. It would be both tragic and foolhardy for the nation which first…
