Has Trump Nominated Too Many Military Leaders — or Not Enough?

Victor Davis Hanson, President-elect Donald Trump is being faulted for supposedly appointing too many retired generals to Cabinet-level jobs and “militarizing” the government. Former Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn is slated to be national security adviser. Retired Marine Gen. James Mattis has been nominated as defense secretary. Retired Marine Gen. John Kelly is Trump’s nominee for

Who for Secretary of State?

Robert Charles, No doubt Rudi Guiliani, a staunch loyalist and the face of our grieving Nation on 9/11, would make an excellent Secretary of State.   That said, he is more Richard Armitage than Colin Powell, more cut to the chase than the 35-year military man, more maverick than mollifier.  Mitt Romney?  Steady mollifier, a proven

Gen. Michael Flynn, a top Trump military adviser. Powell, the former secretary of state and

Hack Attacks: From Colin Powell to the DNC, cyberthieves are driving our election

Howard Kurtz,  It suddenly seems that hackers have seized control of the presidential election. That’s disturbing enough. What’s worse is that Russian hackers appear to be in the driver’s seat. It practically makes Watergate seem quaint. Burglars associated with the Nixon reelection committee actually had to break into the DNC headquarters to gather files from

Top Dem Donor: Hillary Hates Obama, Calls Him “That Man”

Daniel Greenfield, More revelations from the Colin Powell emails, likely hacked by the boys in Moscow. While the media is playing up the “Powell hates Trump” angle for obvious reasons of bias, the most interesting nugget in the emails actually comes not from Powell, but a top Dem donor he was corresponding with. Even more timely

Judicial Watch had released more emails that showed the Clinton Foundation begging
