Planet Hillary
New York Times Magazine, by Amy Chozick

Hillary Clinton was nodding solemnly to the mother of a 9/11 victim when Huma Abedin, standing across the room, called out, “Let’s load!” to the staff members and bodyguards. The former secretary of state had yet to pick up her award from the Voices of September 11th, but her entourage was already preparing to shuttle her off to the next event, a benefit for God’s Love We Deliver, which was co-hosted by the designer Michael Kors and where she would sit next to the Vogue editor and former Obama bundler Anna Wintour. It was just another hectic fall evening in

I´m guessing that those Voices refer to 9/11/01 and not the anniversary when Shrillary let 4 Americans be slaughtered by Muzzie Neanderthals.

#5, if I had to chose which planet she resembled, I´d have to say Uranus [I´ll be here all week].

I like the description of her "...nodding solemnly..." while a bereaved widow was speaking to Herself. The Beast has that highly annoying habit of nodding deeply and constantly while someone is speaking to Her or asking Her a question. Just Her way of saying, "I´d wish you´d SHUT THE HELL UP so that I can excrete my WISDOM upon you, you lower form of life."

But of course a new Obama clone could come out of the woodwork and again take the entire Hillary establishment down just as Obama did, as the Liberal Democrats know that currently they still need a big black vote to win presidential elections, and that will continue until they garner a massive number of new foreign born Hispanic voters some years after the next big amnesty is passed. It´s all about future voter demographics for the Democrats.

This endless puff of Hillary fails to mention a long list of liabilities, which include:
-- Benghazi or her famously unsympathetic statement, “What difference at this point does it make?”
-- Hillarycare,
-- The billing records that mysteriously appeared in the First Family’s private apartments,
-- Hillary’s amazing luck in commodity trading,
-- The “reset” button embarrassment.

Pushing Hillary across the finish line into the White House is a Herculean task. I sincerely believe that our damaged media is not up to it.

The easiest way to sum up the progressive position is this: they hate Sarah Palin and love Hillary Clinton.

Sarah Palin is the all-American woman. Family, God and country. Clinton is the anti-American Marxist. Government, poverty, control.

-Dodging sniper fire in Bosnia when in fact a darling child read a poem and handed her flowers.

-Chelsea was jogging around the World Trade Center when the planes hit when in fact she was at home sleeping.

-900 FBI files to use as she wished. How ever did she acquire them?

-Firing the entire travel office and using threatening tactics on Billy Dale

-Being dismissed from the Watergate hearings for over zealous and unethical behavior.

-Flunking the bar in DC and moving to Arkansas to retake it. Seems nobody fails the bar exam in Arkansas.

EGAD!! The list that could be compiled seems endless.

I love what the MSM is doing with Hillary. Everybody is going to be sick of her before the primaries even start.

This fawning over a candidate is the same fawning we saw when BO was an up and coming star, and we all know how that has ended up.

I firmly believe, Most American´s who vote see the condition of our country and they don´t like it.

HRC is going to have a difficult time even though the media is going to do everything they can. It´s just that even their best isn´t good enough to change history.

This reminds me of all the Hillery hype before the 2008 election. We all knew how that turned out. I can see the Dems dumping her again especially if a candidate comes forward with better lefty qualifications. Foreign ties, a minority, appeals to the gays, anti-American.

The definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over expecting different results.

I keep thinking we´ll have a Bush vs Clinton 2016 election. Especially if Christie flames out. Conservatives more likely to sit out too which would be fine with both parties.

I have 2 problems. 1) will the thing currently in the WH (whose alternate address is AF1) give up these perks when his time is up, and 2) what will make enough voters "smart" enough not to vote for PIAPS? If we don´t have enough smart voters, fraud will win the day.

Hillary´s Ode To Life

Little Miss Rodham, sat on her broadham,
A plottin´ her forward way.

I must listen to Alinsky, and become a but-insky,
And practice what Saul has to say.

I must take to heart, each parcel and part,
And perform my duties OK.

I´ll marry a climber, and start my timer,
And wait for it to be my day.

I´ll remain undeterred, when the pot is stirred,
And never admit I am gay.

I´ll ride his coattails, even when he fails,
And forget there may be hell to pay.

My plan is to stand by my man,
And keep the bimbos at bay.

The price will be high, and some may die,
But on the course I´ll stay.

When the time is right, I´ll strike with might,
And the dragon I´ll finally slay.

POTUS I´ll be, just you wait and see,
And Rule the U. S. of A.

#28 may have a point. What would stop Barry from running for a 3rd term? Congress and the Supreme Court have not shown any interest in stopping him, he shows utter disdain for the Constitution and basic Rule of Law. Knowing this man`s arrogance, he will simply proclaim the American people have to right to vote for whoever they want and should not be constrained by a document written by old white men.

Have you ever been blamed for a murder? Speak out against jihad terror, and you probably will be. It has happened to me three times (so far): 3. Reza Aslan blames me for murder of Muslim woman in California. Last Thursday in El Cajon, California, an Iraqi Muslim named Kassim Alhimidi was found guilty of murdering his wife, Shaima Alawadi, after she had told him that she wanted a divorce. Before Alhimidi was arrested, this murder was widely reported as an “Islamophobic hate crime”: a note was found by Alawadi’s body that read, “Go back to your country, you terrorist.” Leftists and Islamic

Stop dressing so tacky for church

If the Rev. John DeBonville could preach a sermon to lift the souls of churchgoers across America, his message would be simple: Stop dressing so tacky for church. DeBonville has heard about the “come as you are” approach to dressing down for Sunday service, but he says the Sabbath is getting too sloppy. When he scans the pews of churches, DeBonville sees rows of people dressed in their Sunday worst. They saunter into church in baggy shorts, flip-flop sandals, tennis shoes and grubby T-shirts. Some even slide into the pews carrying coffee in plastic foam containers as if they’re going to Starbucks. “It’s like

The Growing Financial Disaster of Obamacare

President Obama asserts that 8 million people have signed up for Obamacare, as though that were something to be proud of. In fact, Obamacare has always been a fiasco from a fiscal perspective–a black hole of subsidies and expanded Medicaid, with largely fictitious mechanisms in place to pay for it. As the number of subsidized participants grows, the disaster gets worse. Charles Blahous explains: Our national discussion…is missing the truly significant story here; what is unfolding before our eyes is a colossal fiscal disaster, poised to haunt legislators and taxpayers for decades to come. It is quite possible that the ACA is

In a speech earlier this week, Lisa O. Monaco, President Barack Obama’s assistant for homeland security and counterterrorism, insisted that American parents must be vigilant because their “confrontational” children could be on the verge of becoming terrorists. Monaco’s full, prepared text is available here. She presented the speech, entitled “Countering Violent Extremism and the Power of Community,” at Harvard University’s Kennedy School of Government on April 15. Monaco began her remarks by eloquently describing the lives tragically lost last year during the Boston Marathon bombings. Interestingly, the Harvard grad failed to mention the religion or the motive of brothers Dzhokhar and Tamerlan

It’s been nine years since the Supreme Court, expressing their decision in the writings of John Paul Stevens, decided to fundamentally change the Takings Clause of the constitution in the case of Kelo v. City of New London. On this auspicious anniversary, a diarist at Redstate decides to take a fresh look at how wonderfully that exercise in freedom worked out for the citizens, and what they received in exchange for their liberties. The Kelo ruling was controversial and precedent-setting because, under eminent domain, the government may seize the property of a private citizen when it’s deemed necessary for public use

MONROEVILLE, Pa.—When the Texas Wesleyan Rams arrived here this month to defend their 10 straight national titles, the 14 players and coaches wore navy blue and gold track suits and carried matching bags. The walkie-talkies worn on the hips of tournament personnel crackled to life: "Texas Wesleyan has entered the building."

WASHINGTON — President Barack Obama will leave Tuesday for a four-nation trip to Asia, looking to recharge a focus on the region, an ambitious initiative that’s been sidetracked by domestic politics and international conflicts elsewhere. Yet even as Obama attempts to boost his effort to emphasize U.S. interest in Asia, Russian President Vladimir Putin’s intervention in Ukraine is complicating efforts to reassure Asian nations _ which share the region with an increasingly assertive China - that the U.S. is committed to their security. The administration’s efforts to refocus U.S. policy toward Asia were already being questioned in the region with the

A painting of President Barack Obama by a shock artist with a rape fetish hung in the White House for at least two years. Artist David Choe, known for his graffiti and shock art, rose to minor fame after drawing the murals in Facebook’s first offices. He hosts a Vice show centered on hitchhiking, has shown Anthony Bourdain around Los Angeles on Bourdain’s CNN show, “Parts Unknown,” and one of his paintings graced the walls of the White House from at least 2008-2010. But Choe also has a rape fetish. On the podcast that he co-hosts with porn star Asa Akira, he

The White House is going to war with another fox — and this time, it’s personal. The Wall Street Journal reports that a red fox has been causing chaos around the White House, tripping security alarms, digging up Michelle’s garden and distracting the president from his duties. The Secret Service won’t give any details about how often the fox trips the White House’s obviously sophisticated security alarms, but rest assured, officials say, they’re watching. President Obama was apparently “stunned” to see the fox roaming freely down the oft-photographed White House colonnade, home to the world’s shortest, but most dramatic, outdoor strolls.

For Hillary Clinton, having her own baby grandchild to kiss on the campaign trail, could be one of the biggest boosts to her possible presidential election campaign. Although the former Secretary of State and First Lady has not said if she will run in 2016, the arrival of her first grandchild will soften her image, analysts have said. While Chelsea only revealed her pregnancy on Thursday, supporters of her mother have already started cooing over a possible baby in the White House. With the Clintons having a near-royal status in the U.S., the announcement of a new arrival due this fall has sent

GREENSBORO, Ga. — Golf holes the size of pizzas. Soccer balls on the back nine. A mulligan on every hole. These are some of the measures — some would say gimmicks — that golf courses across the country have experimented with to stop people from quitting the game. Golf has always reveled in its standards and rich tradition. But increasingly a victim of its own image and hidebound ways, golf has lost five million players in the last decade, according to the National Golf Foundation, with 20 percent of the existing 25 million golfers apt to quit in the next few years. People under 35 have especially spurned the game, saying it takes too

Hi, everybody. For millions of Americans, this time of year holds great meaning. Earlier this week, we hosted a Passover Seder at the White House, and joined Jewish families around the world in their re-tellings of the story of the Exodus and the victory of faith over oppression. And this Sunday, Michelle, Malia, Sasha, and I will join our fellow Christians around the world in celebrating the Resurrection of Christ, the salvation he offered the world, and the hope that comes with the Easter season. These holy days have their roots in miracles that took place long ago. And yet, they still inspire us, guide us, and strengthen us today. They remind us of our

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid said Thursday that a family of dissident ranchers and their supporters in his home state of Nevada are ´domestic terrorists,´ citing this week´s standoff with the federal government´s Bureau of Land Management. Cliven Bundy has refused to pay grazing fees for land where his hundreds of cattle roam every day. The land is owned by the federal government, which says he owes more than $1 million. Bundy, however, insists that since his family has been using the land since the 1870s, Uncle Sam can´t collect the grazing fees. A tense standoff developed this week after

To "honor the dignity and work of immigrants," Democratic House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi helps Bishop Marc Andrus wash the feet of two children Thursday at Saint John the Evangelist Episcopal Church in San Francisco. Pelosi also used the occasion to talk about passing HR15 - bipartisan immigration legislation that her office says would "reduce the deficit by nearly $1 trillion, secure our borders, unite our families, protect our workers and provide an earned pathway to citizenship." The Democratic leader´s ceremony coincides with Pope Francis´ similar ceremony in Rome to mark Holy Week.

WASHINGTON--Rushing to an afternoon vote last month, Sen. Ted Cruz hopped the underground tram to the U.S. Capitol from his office across the street. The Texan planted his black ostrich cowboy boots in the middle of the small subway car without getting so much as a nod from the other senators--Republican or Democrat--amiably chatting or huddled in their seats. Mr. Cruz finds himself standing alone a lot these days. His response to the cold shoulders: "The establishment despised Ronald Reagan" before he became president, "but the people loved him." For the 43-year-old Republican, the Reagan name illuminates his political life´s

Imagine a vendor on the National Mall, selling burgers and dogs, who hasn’t paid his rent in 20 years. He refuses to recognize his landlord, the National Park Service, as a legitimate authority. Every court has ruled against him, and fines have piled up. What’s more, the effluents from his food cart are having a detrimental effect on the spring grass in the capital. Would an armed posse come to his defense, aiming their guns at the park police? Would the lawbreaker get prime airtime on Fox News, breathless updates in the Drudge Report, a sympathetic ear from Tea Party Republicans?

Conservative columnist Ann Coulter — who used her talk show platform in the last presidential election cycle to campaign hard for former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney — has taken up the mantra once again, calling on Republicans to give the failed White House bidder another shot in 2016. She made the suggestion during a discussion on Sean Hannity’s radio show while speaking of her new book, “Never Trust a Liberal Over 3-Especially a Republican.” Ms. Coulter also addressed the question of Mr. Romney’s shortcomings by saying that his 2012 loss wasn’t entirely his fault. “I think too much blame, not only in this
