On March 10, eight days after The New York Times began the scandal over her private email server, Hillary Clinton assembled the press at the United Nations in New York to offer a typically legalistic and crabby press conference lasting only 21 minutes. The first-blush reaction from the pundits? That wasn't good enough. She can't expect the story to go away just from that mess. 
But within 48 hours, that's exactly what began to hapen, with the networks suddenly finding other shiny news objects to explore. So here's the question that needs to be asked: With the networks dumping investigators Lisa Myers, Michael Isikoff and Sharyl Attkisson, is there anyone on broadcast television interested in an investigation of Hillary's decidedly opaque email practices?

In her press conference, Clinton made her usual categorical declarations like: "I fully complied by every rule that I was governed by." Will this be tested, or will Hillary's emails become like the digital equivalent of Bill Clinton's female accusers, buried and forgotten?

Let's recall what then-Los Angeles Times columnist Tim Rutten wrote about John Edwards after the entire fatherhood fiasco in 2008, and the entire national media elite tried not to confirm a National Enquirer story they didn't like about a viable Democratic candidate.

Rutten wrote there were two kinds of confirmation. One occurs when an editor mutters, "Find somebody and have them make a few calls." Or "there's the sort that comes when that editor summons an investigative reporter with a heart like ice and a mind like Torquemada's and says, 'Follow this wherever it goes and peel this guy like an onion.'"

This ice-veined Torquemada approach was applied to every 2012 Republican presidential contender. It's already on display in this cycle against GOP front-runners Jeb Bush and Scott Walker. Is Hillary Clinton's status as the one and only Democratic hope in the field going to cause the liberal media to fold and avoid damaging the Democrats?

The Israeli elections are over, and Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s conservative Likud Party has “soundly defeated” the Israeli Left led by Isaac Herzog, according to The New York Times.  Herzog is the chairman of the Israeli Labor Party and Leader of the Opposition in the Knesset. Herzog’s Labor Party formed a political alliance with the Hatnuah, another liberal party, to form the Zionist Union for the 2015 elections.

After media reports were saying either the race was too close to call, or that Likud had a slim lead; it became clear, once 99 percent of the vote was tabulated, that Likud soundly beat the Zionist Union (via NYT):
After a bruising campaign focused on his failings, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu of Israel won a clear victory in Tuesday’s elections and seemed all but certain to form a new government and serve a fourth term, though he offended many voters and alienated allies in the process. 
With 99.5 percent of the ballots counted, the YNet news site reported Wednesday morning that Mr. Netanyahu’s Likud Party had captured 29 or 30 of the 120 seats in Parliament, sweeping past his chief rival, the center-left Zionist Union alliance, which got 24 seats.

Mr. Netanyahu, who served as prime minister for three years in the 1990s and returned to office in 2009, exulted in what he called “a huge victory” and said he had spoken to the heads of all the parties “in the national camp” and urged them to help him form a government “without any further ado.”
“I am proud of the Israeli people that, in the moment of truth, knew how to separate between what’s important or what’s not and to stand up for what’s important,” he told an exuberant crowd early Wednesday morning at Likud’s election party at the Tel Aviv Fairgrounds. “For the most important thing for all of us, which is real security, social economy and strong leadership.”

Based on the results reported on YNet, Mr. Netanyahu could form a narrow coalition of nationalist and religious parties free of the ideological divisions that stymied his last government. That was what he intended when he called early elections in December. President Reuven Rivlin, who in coming days must charge Mr. Netanyahu or Mr. Herzog with trying to forge a coalition based on his poll of party leaders’ preferences, said shortly after the polls closed that he would suggest they join forces instead.
“I am convinced that only a unity government can prevent the rapid disintegration of Israel’s democracy and new elections in the near future,” he told the Israeli newspaper Haaretz.

Against all odds, life and freedom have won, and Netanyahu has emerged the victor over those who would appease and accommodate the forces who proudly proclaim that they love death and destruction.
