Ben Crystal: What happened, Hillary?

Ben Crystal: What happened, Hillary?

By Ben Crystal Hillary Clinton’s 2016 campaign retrospective, What Happened, will cost you around $20. To me, the idea of forking over $20 or so on 500 pages of the worst presidential candidate in modern history blaming everyone but her wardrobe assistant(s) for her humiliating defeat seems sillier than thinking that dressing like Dr. Evil’s older […]

Ben Crystal: Hurricane high heels

Ben Crystal: Hurricane high heels

By Ben Crystal It goes without saying that America — indeed, the world — would be a better place if disasters like Hurricane Harvey and its attendant devastation never happened. You’d have to be pretty much devoid of a soul to celebrate the images of devastation and death pouring out of Texas. However, it is possible to […]

By Ben Crystal Last Wednesday evening, demonstrators crowded the NFL offices in Manhattan to demand — DEMAND — that Colin Kaepernick be signed by one of the League’s clubs, posthaste. Despite their commands, Kaepernick, who hasn’t suited up for an NFL squad since he walked away from the San Francisco 49ers in March, continues to watch league […]

Ben Crystal: The hard truth

Ben Crystal: The hard truth

By Ben Crystal Some truths are harder to face than others. But truth isn’t as fluid a concept as — say — “gender identity.” Read on; there’s something in here for everyone. Hard Truth: James Fields is a terrorist. If his name was Muhammad, and he’d driven his car into a crowd in Nice, I’d […]

Ben Crystal: The Abortion Party

By Ben Crystal Last week, Rep. Ben Ray Lujan (D-NM), the chairman of the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee, suggested the Democrats might consider extending funding to candidates who aren’t on board the Abortion Express. “There is not a litmus test for Democratic candidates… you need to make sure you have candidates that fit the district, […]

Ben Crystal: Useless

Ben Crystal: Useless

By Ben Crystal The Republicans said they needed control of the House of Representatives to stop the Obama regime’s assaults on liberty. So we gave it to them. They said they needed the Senate to really make it work; so we gave them that, too. We even threw in the White House, just to make […]

Ben Crystal: The CNN smackdown

Ben Crystal: The CNN smackdown

By Ben Crystal There was a time, many moons ago, when CNN enjoyed a reputation as the “most trusted name in news.”  Of course, that was back when “news” meant “things that have actually happened, and are worthy of coverage.”  To borrow a phrase from Bob Dylan, “the times, they are a-changin’.”  Nowadays, CNN alternates […]

Ben Crystal: The most busted name in news

By Ben Crystal During a Tuesday press briefing at the White House, Deputy Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee-Sanders expressed her boss’s frustration at dealing with an increasingly activist media and their increasingly frequent breaches of journalistic ethics. Sanders lectured about the “constant barrage of fake news,” specifically referencing the recent CNN “dossier” disaster which ended up […]

Ben Crystal: Losing your Ossoff

Ben Crystal: Losing your Ossoff

By Ben Crystal How many times will the Democrats fall on their faces before they learn that bad candidates can — and will — overcome nearly any advantage? Last year, the angry old lady the Democratic Party chose to carry their banner into the 2016 presidential fray told America, during a nationally televised debate no […]

Ben Crystal: The loser won’t leave

By Ben Crystal If you’re wondering what a failed presidential candidate who deletes files with a hammer was doing at the Recode CodeCon 2017, you ain’t the only one. While attendees tried to wrap their heads around the idea of Hillary Clinton headlining an event dedicated to the digital realm, Hillary confirmed their reservations. The […]
