Meet the Clinton shoe-thrower
NBC Universal, by Emma Margolin

Original Article

Posted By:LittleHoodedMonk, 4/12/2014 5:03:17 PM

Who throws a shoe? Honestly! That would be 36-year-old Alison Ernst of Phoenix, Arizona, who was charged Thursday night with disorderly conduct by the Las Vegas Police Department after allegedly throwing a shoe at former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton. According to NBC News, who spoke with a Secret Service official, the U.S. Attorney’s office has declined federal prosecution. Ernst was wearing shoes on Thursday night when she attended a speech Clinton was giving in Las Vegas, but apparently brought an extra one specifically to throw at the former secretary of state. The official said the incident appeared to be “premeditated.”

Comments:
Alison Ernst needs to be locked up in a padded cell to be poked & prodded as to why she would premeditate injury upon the "Woman of the Year." Letting her go is not an act of mercy, it shows the act was a set-up.

Lol, one of my favorites lines from Austin Powers and exactly what I was thinking when I saw it on the news. Who throws a shoe, indeed.

The headline is misleading. There are no facts about the shoe thrower´s background in this article. I´m with the skeptics who smell a hoax.

MSNBC, of course, cannot figure out why this woman threw the shoe. However, the Daily Mail UK and Fox News both mention the note about Operation Cynthia in Bolivia that came with that shoe. They won´t prosecute because she´s a crazy leftist.

Hillary did not duck or dodge or even know it was flying by her. The only thing Hillary can duck are questions.

The mainsteam media lies about things people can see for themselves are false. Good grief, it´s on YouTube.

The article has precious little information. The woman supposedly dropped some papers on the way out. What was on them?

We do learn that this was the Institute of Scrap Recycling so Hillary was no doubt talking about Democrat policies.

This sounds like another setup to me. Sort of like the Bosnia sniper fire lie in 1996. Never trust anything that any Clinton says.

Besides that, how could anyone miss her with a shoe. Like throwing something at a wall and missing.

Hillary’s responsive quips were already written, e.g., “My goodness, I didn’t know that solid waste management was so controversial.”

This staged non-story and Hillary’s face has been all over the news – both foreign and domestic – she and her handlers got exactly what they wanted.

I agree with the previous posters who said this was staged. Hillary did not act surprised so much as she exhibited fake embarrassment like when some friends throw her a surprise party. She did not try to duck, move out of the way or show any surprise other than, "Oh, is this all about little old me?" And then she delivered a few stand up comic lines I guaranty were written for her in advance. Hillary cannot be funny on her own!

Also on the video,, Hilary prances back and forth, flapping her hands like a seal performing for a fish. And if this was a surprise attack where was her security? She would have been swept off the stage by a human shield of secret service agents. Bah! Hilary admirers are dim beyond belief.

Set up from the start. If not, the shoe would not have made it to the stage. 60 feet?? This woman has an arm!! That shoe was moving and the toss was close. She is a professional thrower of some sort. PIAPS knew when the throw was coming and from which direction. With stage lights she could have not seen it.

FTA: Ernst seemed “aware of what she had just done.” Security quickly grabbed her after she pelted a black and orange sneaker from about 60 feet away from the stage.

It is not yet clear what Ernst’s motivation was.


Was Ernst sleep-walking? Maybe one of the casino magician acts put her in a trance and instructed her to throw the shoe when she saw Hillary.

How did she get through security? Heck, there´s more security at a Big Ten football game than there apparently was at Hill´s speech.

This was a setup - no doubt about it. Probably Hill´s SS were told in advance, too; otherwise, they would have been all over Hill like flees on a dog.

Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel quietly notified Congress last week that the military is set to transfer six Guantanamo Bay prisoners to Uruguay as soon as next month, The New York Times revealed Wednesday. The deal has been waiting for Mr. Hagel’s approval since March, but stalled after the Obama administration received a wave of backlash for releasing five Taliban detainees to Qatar in exchange for the release Army Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl. The administration did not give Congress 30-days notice in that deal, but argued it was still legal because any delay could have risked Sgt. Bergdahl’s life.

Carney of United States District Court, has led to “inordinate and unpredictable” delays in the execution of inmates. The delays, the judge wrote, means that sentences are carried out against only “a trivial few of those sentenced to death.” In essence, he wrote, sentences by juries have been transformed to “life in prison, with the remote possibility of death.” In making his ruling, Judge Carney vacated the death sentence of

A minor actress from Texas was sentenced Wednesday to 18 years in prison for sending ricin-tainted letters to President Obama, former New York mayor Michael Bloomberg and the head of his gun-control group. Shannon Guess Richardson, 36, was also ordered to pay $367,000 restitution as part of a plea bargain for pleading guilty in December to one count of developing, producing, possessing and transferring a biological agent for use as a weapon. She bought the materials — castor bean seeds and lye — online. The FBI arrested her in June 2013 after she was indicted by a federal grand jury.

Israel agreed Wednesday to halt its airstrikes on Gaza for five hours in order to allow humanitarian aid, following a request from the United Nations Relief and Works Agency. The military said in a statement Wednesday that it would hold its fire for five hours starting at 10:00 a.m. local time on Thursday. It warns however that it will retaliate "firmly and decisively" if Hamas or other militant groups launch attacks on Israel during that time. The cease-fire request came from U.N. Special Coordinator for the Middle East Robert Serry, Haaretz reports. After news of the cease-fire broke, Israel’s “Iron Dome” missile defense system continued to

Washington - The White House is defying a congressional subpoena by keeping a top political aide to President Barack Obama from testifying at a hearing Wednesday. The White House is arguing that Obama adviser David Simas is immune from subpoena by the House Oversight Committee in its investigation into the political office that he directs. White House counsel Neil Eggleston says in a letter to Oversight Chairman Darrell Issa that the Simas subpoena threatens the constitutional separation of powers. White House lawyers spent an hour and 15 minutes Tuesday briefing the committee´s staff behind closed doors on the political office´s

A Transportation Safety Administration agent at the Orlando International Airport rejected a man’s use of his D.C. driver’s license as identification — because he had no idea where the District of Columbia was located, according to a report by WFTV. According to the news agency, Justin Gray — a D.C. resident — was flying out of the airport and attempted to use his driver’s license as his form of identification when passing through a security checkpoint. The TSA agent attending to Mr. Gray rejected the license and demanded his passport. Mr. Gray, who did not have his passport on his person, asked the agent why it was necessary,

Almost three dozen Disney theme park workers have been arrested for alleged kiddie-sex crimes since 2006, according to a broadcast report. The 35 busts have been for possession of child porn or trying to meet a minor for sex, CNN found after combing through law enforcement and court records. So far, 32 of those busted have been convicted and the other cases are pending. Two cases of child porn allegedly happened on Disney property. Disney spokeswoman Jacquee Wahler said these scary arrests represent only a tiny fraction of the company’s workforce. “Providing a safe environment for children and families is a

Representative Paul Ryan (R., Wis.,) has given up on passing legislation to overhaul the current immigration system because the border crisis has poisoned the political atmosphere for such an effort, at least for this year. (Snip) Ryan also summarized his view of how to resolve the border crisis. “The ultimate goal ought to be to secure the border, get the resources at the border that you need (and that’s where I think there’s a case for a supplemental; they’re burning through funds). But you’ve got to change the human trafficking law so that we’re not resettling people within the interior of the country, because all that does is create the incentive

Washington - Behind a slight majority of Democratic votes, the GOP-controlled House of Representatives voted late this afternoon to approve a $10.8 billion short-term extension of the Highway Trust Fund. The temporary lifeline for the nation’s construction workers passed 367-55, with 186 Democrats joining 181 Republicans on the vote. The legislation, known formally as the Highway and Transportation Funding Act of 2014, was opposed by many conservatives, with both the Club For Growth and Heritage Action pressing lawmakers to oppose the vote.

Lawmakers pushed back Tuesday against the Environmental Protection Agency’s move to garnish the paychecks of accused polluters, advancing a bill that would block the new authority. The House Committee on Appropriations approved the countermeasure as a policy rider on a $30.2 billion spending bill for natural resources agencies, including the EPA, the Interior Department and U.S. Forest Service. The amendment by Rep. Tom Graves, Georgia Republican, passed the committee in a voice vote, signaling an absence of strong opposition, if not support for prohibiting the EPA from claiming authority to garnish wages to collect fines

For an unknown candidate, political campaigns are not glamorous. “I’m sick, tired, hungry and broke,” jokes Joe Carr, a Republican Senate candidate in Tennessee. (Snip) But Carr was convinced his primary challenge to Republican Sen. Lamar Alexander was primed to catch fire. The spark may have finally come last month, when House Majority Leader Eric Cantor was bounced in a GOP primary by an unknown challenger named Dave Brat. The black swan upset buoyed Carr’s campaign, opening a fresh spigot of cash and prompting comparisons to the Virginia economics professor who was written off by everyone until he toppled Cantor.

The Obama administration quietly announced on Tuesday that it intends to change the way Americans learn about natural disasters and other major emergencies during radio and TV broadcasts, giving the president the ability to flip a switch and address the entire nation at once. The Emergency Alert System, the latest version of a program first established in 1951, blasts out emergency messages in the event of local weather emergencies, but can also be used to warn Americans about terror attacks and major natural disasters.

In his message to the “Mexico/Holy See Colloquium on Migration and Development,” Pope Francis characterized the tens of thousands of illegal immigrants that have crossed the U.S. southern border as a product of globalization, suggesting that the phenomenon is happening worldwide. Francis proclaimed, “Despite the large influx of migrants present in all continents and in almost all countries, migration is still seen as an emergency, or as a circumstantial and sporadic fact, while instead it has now become a hallmark of our society and a challenge.” Emmer McCarthy for Vatican Radio said Francis expressed his concern for “the tens of thousands of

The First Lady of these United States has declared war on Chick-fil-A. It seems the home of plump juicy breasts and hot buttered buns has run afoul of the new Smart Snacks in School program. The program is a component of Mrs. Obama’s Healthy, Hunger-Free Kids Act of 2010. The new government regulations require snack items served in public schools to have less than two hundred calories. That includes vending machines, lunch rooms and other campus food venues. And that’s really bad news for kids at South Carolina’s Socastee High School. They’ve just learned they will no longer be allowed to buy Chick-fil-A

“Trust” is for Con Men: The reaction to the border chaos in Texas has accomplished one thing: It has exploded the lie at the heart of current “comprehensive” immigration reform plans. The basic structure of those plans is a swap of a) near-immediate legalization for b) increased border security in the future. The appealing idea is to let current illegals stay while taking the steps necessary to prevent further waves. The lie is the assumption that, once current illegals get their legalization, pro-immigrant activists in both parties will continue to support the second half of the bargain, the increased security.

WASHINGTON — It was an enduring image of his presidency: a chastened Bill Clinton walking his dog while wife Hillary keeps her distance as the family leaves town at the height of the Monica Lewinsky scandal — but it was all part of a contrived public-repentance campaign, according to a new book. With Bill on the skids and his wife’s future prospects on the line, it was necessary for the pubic to see the president being punished, said Weekly Standard online editor Daniel Halper in his new book, “Clinton, Inc.: The Audacious Rebuilding of a Political Machine.” “They understood that
