Hillary Clinton’s emails: She’s lying in plain sight

Speaking in San Francisco Thursday, Hillary Clinton told supporters that Donald Trump is not fit to be president. "He roots for himself," the former Secretary of State proclaimed, "and that's the type of person who should not be president of the United States." By that standard, Clinton herself has no business running to win the White House.

Hey, Sanders supporters: All roads lead to Venezuela

When socialist Hugo Chavez became president of Venezuela after the 1998 election, he promised a path he described as "revolutionary," the same word Bernie Sanders uses for his "movement" to fight "income inequality."

Bernie needs to do the math

Math was actually my best subject, until seventh grade, when I was the only girl on the math team: As if it were on the intercom, I heard loud and clear that girls weren't supposed to be good at math. But today I'm still proficient enough to figure out how to add up to 2,383, the number of delegates you need to win the Democratic nomination. And Hillary Clinton already has 2,305.

Failed Republicans want to rewrite the Constitution

Did you ever wonder why unsuccessful candidates merely "suspend" their campaigns after losing a key primary instead of terminating them? Surely all those candidates know that it's impossible to restart a presidential campaign once it's been suspended. In the famous words of Theodore Roosevelt's daughter Alice Longworth, "You can't make a souffle rise twice."

Ferguson Effect by the Bay

"It's as hard right now to be a cop maybe as it's ever been," San Francisco Police Chief Greg Suhr to The Chronicle Editorial Board Tuesday. At the time, Suhr was resisting calls demanding that he resign. Five local protesters had given up their hunger strike to force his departure to atone for officer-involved shootings of four minority men in the previous two years. Four supervisors had jumped onto that bandwagon, but Suhr enjoyed Mayor Ed Lee's support. Until Thursday, that is, when a San Francisco cop shot and killed Jessica Williams, 29, an unarmed auto theft ...

Male and female still matter in combat

Less than a year after the Supreme Court decided that marriage no longer needs partners of the opposite sex, the other two branches of the federal government are moving rapidly to eliminate all rational distinctions based on sex. Taken together, these new actions reflect the unscientific (but oh-so-politically correct) dogma that there are no fundamental, biological differences between male and female.

The Democrats’ Sanders

If Donald Trump supporters had booed a Republican senator at a state convention over the weekend, if they threw chairs because they did not like a delegate count, if Trump's goons published a state party vice chairwoman's private phone number -- which unleashed a torrent of abusive, obscenity-drenched voice messages that described the acts of violence she deserved -- then it would be a big story. And if Trump spoke Wednesday afternoon, you would expect all the cable news networks to air his speech live to see whether Trump would use the occasion to call off the dogs or he ...

Shameless New York Times

The New York Times proclaimed the results of its six-week "investigation" of Donald Trump's behavior with women on the front page of the Sunday paper. It discovered that Trump is kind of sleazy around women. The Times wants us to know this right now -- as opposed to six months ago -- when it's clear he will be the Republican nominee running against Hillary Clinton.

Here’s why Trump tap dances on taxes

Donald Trump has reason to be reluctant to release his tax returns. In a New York Times piece about Ben Rhodes, President Obama's deputy national security adviser, Rhodes cynically explains that today's journalism consists of young people whom he flat-out describes as ignorant. "The average reporter we talk to is 27 years old," Rhodes said, "and their only reporting experience consists of being around political campaigns. That's a sea change. They literally know nothing."
