Chelsea takes to political stage
to become ´face of the Clintons´as
Hillary prepares for run at White House

Daily Mail (UK), by Staff

Original Article

Posted By:JoniTx, 12/24/2012 9:18:53 AM

Chelsea Clinton is set to become the new face of the Clinton family political dynasty as mother Hillary exits the stage after 31 years of public service. The New York resident, now 32, is being tipped to follow in the footsteps of both her mother and former-president father and play an increasingly prominent role in public life. Hillary will step down from the helm at the State Department early in the New Year to be replaced by Sen. John Kerry - and will take a long break before her rumoured run for the White House. Now experts quoted inPolitico.com

I seriously doubt that she has the ability or the motivation. But I´m sure she will be propped up & trotted out, anyway, & will win any office she runs for. With the voter fraud in our system, all elections in the future will be rigged if necessary.

Couldn´t this article be accompanied by an advisory: "An air sickness bag is conveniently located in the seat back in front of you"?

Hillary can´t discuss her multiple failures and lies over Benghazi but she can get the Daily Mail to run a public service announcement for her next campaign. HRC´s concussion must have been tossed into her shredder.

Let´s see if the incoming SoS appoints Chelsea as an assistant Secretary of State for women´s health issues.

How appropriate that the ´face of the Clintons´ is one that has been made over with a lot of cosmetic surgery.

It will take more than that to make us forget their dreadful history - Bubba´s and Hill´s.

I am so sick of hearing all these political hacks that about all theri years of ´public service´. 31 years of public service? She never served anybody but herself. Her years as sec. of State were a four year long trip around the world at taxpayers expense. Tell me one thing she ever did that benefited the American public.

Hope that she is as successful as Jack, Bobby and Ted´s kids - at most, a couple of seats in congress for a few years and now, nothing. She already has the Kennedy propensity for boozing down pat and it looks like her marriage is going to be just as successful as Ted and Joan´s. Where is her husband?

Chelsea is dull. She won´t help create any support for her mother. Hillary herself is a disaster. I´m not sure there are enough fat farms, hairdressers, clothes stylists, makeup artists, plastic surgeons to put her back together as a candidate.

I doubt it. PIAPS had enough feminist intuition to marry a man who was going places (sorry, pun intended) and PIAPS could claim she was successful based on his credentials. Little piaps´ husband has not made his mark in the world yet for little piaps to cling to.

Couple of thoughts:
Isn´t really public service when you either make no money or very little money at it? Otherwise, it´s a career, and a well-paid one at that.
Secondly, it has begun. The press loves Hilary. They will turn on our current WH resident at some point. They will have to. There is no Republican to run against right now. I cannot wait to see the fireworks.

I have read where Chelsea was working for the MSM and she was a disaster! A rock has more personality.

Hillary and the Benghazi issue. Who among us can imagine the horror of asking for help from one of the strongest countries, being a citizen of that country, using the red phone, having it answered and then find out that the one who answered the phone just sat there and did nothig.

Just look at what kind of people are representing this country or think they are able. Dear GOD, A ten year old has a greater understanding of truth and logic.

Did Chelsea ever earn her Ph.D.?
And as far as the foundation goes, Bill Clinton can live like the sultan of brunei, on taxfree foundation money, given by many in the middle east.
He was given the task by the feds to rebuild haiti, and has accomplished nothing.
But he talks a good game.
Chelsea is a snarky brat, with a fake marriage, just like her mom and dad´s fake marriage. I cannot imagine that she will make any contribution to hillary´s campaign, which is three years from now, when she will look so tired, forelorn, and fat, that she will be a warren stassen kind of joke.

Such a sweet outdoorsy girl. Loves nature, in spite of what it did to her. No more dynasties. No more Kennedys , Clintons or Bushes. At least Chel can say Amt Carter is still the ugliest First Child. Even Sausage and Malaria may turn out to be more attractive than Amy C. And let´s make sure those two Øs don´t ever get elected either.

How can Hillary be president? She gets the pukey flu and disappears for weeks. A presidents doesn´t have that luxury.
Personally, I think she will reappear with an all new face - all lifted and tight with no more eye bags. She has been growing that hideous hair but it will be short when she shows up next and she will say her looks have changed because she has a new haircut.
She will still have that fake laugh - like woody wood "bird that drills holes in tree" (censor did not like that word) - and a voice like fingernails on a blackboard.

WASHINGTON — In the days leading up to President Obama’s trip to Europe, the director of the Secret Service, Julia A. Pierson, sat down with the agency’s senior officials to reiterate a message she had focused on during her first year in the job. Although it had been nearly two years since several agents were caught soliciting prostitutes in Cartagena, Colombia, shortly before Mr. Obama arrived there for a summit meeting, Ms. Pierson said the agency remained under scrutiny. Agents should be reminded, she said, to be on their best behavior during the coming trip to Europe, where Mr. Obama

After a contentious Wednesday hearing with IRS Commissioner John Koskinen, South Carolina Republican congressman Trey Gowdy threatened to hold the top tax official in contempt of Congress unless he produces disgraced IRS official Lois Lerner’s emails by the end of this week. Gowdy spoke with Fox News’ Greta van Susteren about Wednesday’s hearing, where a slew of GOP congressmen tore into Koskinen’s claim that responding to the Oversight committee’s subpoena for Lerner’s emails could take years. “All we want are the emails to or from Lois Lerner — I’m not talking about private taxpayer information.

Even with more than two years left in his term, President Obama’s ability to fill many of his administration’s most important jobs is rapidly diminishing. White House officials are scrambling to reassess their confirmation strategy in the wake of two major setbacks this month: the Senate’s rejection of lawyer Debo Adegbile to head the Justice Department’s civil rights division and signs that surgeon general nominee Vivek H. Murthy could go down in defeat as well. On Tuesday, the administration appointed Karl Remón Thompson as acting head of the Justice Department’s Office of Legal Counsel — bypassing the Senate confirmation process

A California state senator once lauded for efforts to make government more transparent was arrested by the FBI in San Francisco Wednesday along with a onetime gang leader known as ‘Shrimp Boy.’ State Sen. Leland Yee and Raymond Chow, were taken into custody after a series of raids by federal and gang task force officials, but the charges against them remained undisclosed. Yee is the third Democratic senator to face charges this year. He was scheduled to be arraigned in federal court in San Francisco on Wednesday afternoon.

While Houstonians were enthralled by the massive flames and smoke emanating from an unfinished apartment complex in Montrose, national media outlets turned their attention toward this: A YouTube video surfaced of a construction worker who managed to successfully flee the hellish scene on West Dallas around noon Tuesday. That video has since garnered over half a million views and is being shared around the internet by outlets like Gawker and BuzzFeed. As the fire raged on, the worker jumped from the top floor of the complex to a balcony directly below. When firefighters moved in with a ladder, the worker

For the second week in a row, the missing Malaysia Airlines flight MH370 and Russia’s annexation of the Crimean peninsula kept cable news’ coverage Hillary Clinton — who currently holds no office and has not announced a candidacy for one — relatively low. Once again, MSNBC was maintained more of an interest in Clinton in the face of more pressing stories, accounting for considerably more segments and time spent on Clinton — though their numbers last week were still low compared to peak Clinton coverage of last month. Hardball host Chris Matthews alone logged more time on the hypothetical candidate

WASHINGTON —Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) plans to reimburse his campaign more than $16,000 for purchasing holiday gifts from his granddaughter´s jewelry business. The Federal Election Commission sent Reid’s campaign a letter last week asking it to provide more information about payments listed as “holiday gifts” on its 2013 year-end campaign finance report. The filing lists two payments in October 2013 to “Ryan Elisabeth” totaling $16,786.93. A Reid aide confirmed that "Ryan Elisabeth" is the name of a company owned by his granddaughter Ryan Elisabeth Reid. The aide described the gifts as trinkets — coasters, picture frames, jewelry —

U.S. Border Patrol agents, in conjunction with Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) recently disclosed the increasing practice of releasing “low threat” illegal immigrant detainees to address the over-crowding of immigration detention centers in south Texas, according to official confirmation of local reports. One south Texas television station, KRGV, recently reported instances of women and minors claiming to have been recently released from immigration officials with “documents that allow [them] to travel anywhere in the United States.” Released individuals claimed their federal instructions stated they were not legally allowed to work and could be subject to further immigration hearings.

Northwestern University football players are employees of the school and are therefore entitled to a union election, Peter Sung Ohr, the regional director of the National Labor Relations Board, said in a ruling released Wednesday afternoon. The stunning decision has the potential to alter dramatically the world of big-time college sports in which the National Collegiate Athletic Association and the universities strike the deals and set the rules, exerting control over the activities of the players known as "student athletes." But now they are employees, too, according to the NLRB decision, which will be appealed. In siding with the union,

Former Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld has said that ´a trained ape´ could do a better job managing American interests in Afghanistan than President Obama. The retired Republican made the insult while doing a phone-in interview for Greta Van Susteren´s Fox News show on Tuesday. He argued that the President made a serious error by failing to negotiate a status forces agreement with Afghan President Hamid Karzai. Gawker points out that such an agreement would effectively commit the United States to having a certain number of troops in the country for a number of years beyond the already-agreed-upon plan which

Three Secret Service agents responsible for protecting President Obama in Amsterdam this week were sent home and put on administrative leave Sunday after going out for a night of drinking, according to three people familiar with the incident. One of them was found drunk and passed out in a hotel hallway, the people said. The hotel staff alerted the U.S. Embassy in the Netherlands after finding the unconscious agent Sunday morning, a day before Obama arrived in the country, according to two of the people. The embassy then alerted Secret Service managers on the presidential trip, which included Secret Service

A pair of potentially catastrophic cases will be argued before the Supreme Court on Tuesday. These cases are brought by privately held, for-profit corporations that are arguing their religious convictions should preclude them from offering employees the health insurance required by law. Specifically, these private employers don’t want to allow their employees’ insurance to cover some forms of birth control because, contrary to medicaland scientific evidence, they believe some birth control causes abortions. Corporations are not people. Corporations cannot have religious views. If religious rights are extended to corporations, it puts us on a slippery slope where any private company

Former President Jimmy Carter is back in the news this week publicizing a new book about women’s rights. But, as is often the case with Carter, he drew more interest for comments he made about Israel and its supporters. When asked on NBC’s Meet the Press yesterday by Andrea Mitchell why it was that Barack Obama never called upon him for advice, he made it clear that the Jewish state was the reason he has been treated like a pariah: I—that’s a hard question– for me to answer—you know, with complete candor. I think the problem was that– that in dealing

Media Matters, the website of choice for Fox News haters everywhere, attacked the cable news network on Monday for using the term “homosexual” in its programming — advancing the peculiar argument that the scientific term has a “pejorative connotation.” The online “media watchdog” contends that calling gay people “homosexual” is “a practice that’s quickly falling out of favor with major news outlets due the term’s often pejorative connotation and frequent use by opponents of LGBT equality.” Fox News, they chide, “has yet to update its language when referring to gay and lesbian people.” Buttressing their argument?

First Lady Michelle Obama talked about America as she visited a school today in China. She talked about the American dream: And my story isn’t unusual in America. Some of our most famous athletes, like LeBron James, and artists, like the singer Janelle Monae, came from struggling families like mine, as do many business leaders -- like Howard Schultz. He’s the head of a company called Starbucks, which many of you may have heard of. When Mr. Schultz was a boy his father lost his job, leaving their family destitute. But Mr. Schultz worked hard. He got a scholarship to a

Washington - A leading Democratic pollster predicted a "sobering" turnout disadvantage for her party in this year´s midterm elections and called on Democrats to articulate "a bigger economic agenda" this fall. "There is a huge turnout disadvantage and challenge," Democratic pollster Celinda Lake said Tuesday at a breakfast with reporters. "There is always a challenge in turnout in an off year, but it´s really dramatic this time." Lake was speaking a breakfast hosted by the Christian Science Monitor. Lake and Republican pollster Ed Goeas revealed results of a new George Washington University poll that showed GOP voter intensity in 2014 outpacing

WASHINGTON — Spring break was never this dull. First Lady Michelle Obama’s kids finally hit the wall on their whirlwind visit to China, showing signs they’ve nearly reached their limit tagging along with mom as she visits site after site on what’s billed as a “person-to-person” tour. Accompanied by Malia, 15, and Sasha, 12, the first lady on Monday toured Xi’an, an ancient city in the ancestral province of Chinese President Xi Jinping. They inspected the city’s 600-year-old wall, a day after touring the Great Wall near Beijing. Photos show Sasha looking like she’d rather be back home with her pals than hitting the

The Obama administration is prepared to give prospective Obamacare enrollees another half-month to signup for insurance coverage through the Affordable Care Act website, healthcare.gov, treating the law´s March 31 regulatory deadline as a formality for Americans who claim they tried in earnest to sign up in time. During a March 12 congressional hearing, HHS Secretary Kathleen Sebelius told Texas Republican Rep. Kevin Brady that there would be no such extensions. ´Are you going to delay the open enrollment beyond March 31?´ Brady asked. ´No, sir,´ she replied. On the same day, Julie Bataille, a spokeswoman for the

As the U.S. Supreme Court weighed the constitutionality of a contraception coverage mandate Tuesday morning, a federal appeals court heard a separate legal challenge that could have much more sweeping implications for the future of President Obama´s health care law. And if the oral arguments before the U.S. Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit are any indication, it’s time for the White House to start sweating over a lawsuit that up until now has flown relatively below the radar. At issue in the case are the subsidies that the federal government provides for individuals purchasing insurance through Obamacare. Though the text

On her 12 p.m. ET hour MSNBC show on Tuesday, host Andrea Mitchell interrogated attorney Mark Rienzi for representing Hobby Lobby in the Supreme Court case against the ObamaCare contraception mandate: "What right do they have, again, to interfere with medical decisions by women?...I mean, this gets to the whole issue of women´s health and why should women be discriminated against in ways that other medical beneficiaries are not?" [Listen to the audio or watch the video after the jump] Rienzi pushed back: "No one´s discriminating against women, Andrea, all they´re saying is that, you´re right, these are personal decisions,

On Wednesday, Obama administration officials announced a two week extension in the deadline to enroll in the Affordable Care Act or face a penalty defined as a tax. Asked about this “delay” in the implementation of the ACA on Wednesday, Sen. Harry Reid (D-NV) said that there has been no delay. He added that some of the users who experienced problems with the website early on need more time, partially because “people are not educated about how to use the internet.” “There’s no hiccup or delay,” Reid insisted. “We had hundreds of thousands of people who tried to sign up and
