How Hillary Clinton could win in 2020

Today 10:51 GMT

Clinton wouldn't need their votes to shave away at Trump's small margin in the handful of states that will be competitive in 2020.

She could, perhaps uniquely among Democrats with 2020 ambitions, speak with something approaching credibility about Russia, even going so far as to claim that Obama failed the country by leaving us open to election interference. She would be, as she was in 2016, the candidate of Wall Street, but she would also be the candidate of common sense, of toughness, of non-whining, of achievement, appealing to the suburbs with caricatures of Trump's base as a bunch of toothless entitled drug-addicted hicks the same way she slandered African-Americans in the '90s with her contemptuous remarks about those who have "known nothing but dependency all their lives."

Saturday 13:36 GMT

A coven of New York witches is holding a public ceremony next week to cast a hex on Justice Brett Kavanaugh, in what Tucker Carlson described as the latest left-wing effort to stop his rise to the high court.

Friday 18:13 GMT

"If you cannot achieve equality of performance among people born to the same parents and raised under the same roof,” economist Thomas Sowell recently tweeted, “how can you achieve it across broader and deeper social divisions?"

"Socialism comes in two flavors," said economist Douglas Holtz-Eakin, president of America's Action Forum and former head of the Congressional Budget Office.
