Hillary Clinton Says She
Isn´t ´Truly Well Off´

Business Insider, by Hunter Walker

Original Article

Posted By:StormCnter, 6/23/2014 5:00:38 AM

Hillary Clinton´s multimillion dollar fortune has caused some negative headlines during the media tour for the release of her new book "Hard Choices," which is widely seen as a prelude to a potential 2016 presidential campaign. Clinton responded to criticism of her wealth in an interview with the Guardian newspaper published Saturday night by suggesting Americans won´t be concerned about the more than $100 million her family has reportedly earned in recent years because they´re not "truly well off." "They don´t see me as part of the problem," Clinton said of Americans who are upset about income inequality, adding, "Because we

Nobody who has sold their soul is truly well off, so in a way she´s right.

Amazing that two people who were broke in 1992, now worth over $100Million can be construed as "Public Service". Can only happen in LOFO land.

Would some reporter ask PIAPS how much would it take to make her comfortably well off and would she support a law that nobody pay any income tax until they reach that level!

Hillary claims she & Bill got filthy rich "through dint of hard work."

Like the cattle futures deal.

And those multi-million dollars advances from publishers for their ghost-written books. Advances which are theirs to keep regardless if the publishers recoup the advances or not.

Yeah, that´s real hard work.

She and Michelle make the same "poor me" claims. They don´t have to have a lot; they are parasites and live off of the poor that they claim to support. Ask Hillary why she has put so much into trusts for Chelsea so Chelsea won´t have to pay taxes. Hillary has used every tax loophole available. These a loopholes for the very wealthy, not the poor she claims to be. She has too much hubris to look or sound humble.

Hillary Clinton exudes an absolute disdain for anyone who doubts her word, questions her statements, disbelieves her versions of her history. Barack Obama has the same attitude, that he is up high looking down on the unfortunates who must embrace him, no matter how badly they are treated.

Do we want a re-run of this with Hillary?

I see she´s playing the sympathy card now along with a few more ´poor me´ pity cards. Since her book has crashed to #16, priced new at about $13.49, rated at 2 stars, and Simon and Schuster is considering suicide, I don´t see any bright side to her Presidential aspiration´s.

So long PIAPS, it ain´t been nice to know you and at this point, what difference does it make.

Sadly Hillary´s let-them-eat-cake attitude toward those, who have worked for their money and who have not sucked the government teat dry nor gained from nefarious back-room deals, rivals in close second only to Michelle´s. Hillary has raised just one child, who feels entitled to be an elite (one who has a $10 million apartment at her age without selling a previous multi-million dollar one. Where are her skills to support an accompanying income and how will she pay the property taxes, which we all struggle to pay?); now, Michelle is raising two elites, who have and will live like princesses clueless and without merit.

How dare Hillary with $100+ million dollars (from where?) whine about being not rich and insinuate that the wealthy, hard working and innovative republicans, who have EARNED their fortunes be vilified! It seems she thinks unless one scammed his/her way to wealth, he/she is worthless. Let´s put her, Nancy Pelosi, Harry Reid, John F. Kerry, along with Valerie Jarrett and even Huma Abedine´s income with their sources and compare them with say, the Koch brothers, the Bushes, Cheneys, or any successful republican and determine just who earned their wealth!

Any politician who enters office as a person of modest means then becomes outlandishly wealthy either while in office or shortly after leaving office is, essentially, a crook. The Clintons and Al Gore are the most egregious examples of utilizing their political connections to amass wealth without doing anything to benefit society, as successful businesspeople have done. Hillary! has got a helluva lot of nerve to complain, considering that she regularly cashes in for $200,000 for 45 minutes of rambling, lying bovine scatology in front of a captive crowd of fools. The only difference between her and the Sink Emperor is that since he was president, he gets more per speech. I wouldn´t cross the street to see or hear either of them.

Is The TSA The Most Monstrously

The Federalist, by Daniel Payne    Original Article

The Transportation Security Administration (TSA) has identified a massive new threat to domestic airline security. No, it’s not ISIS, Al Qaeda, or the Taliban. It’s the dead battery on your smartphone. Last week, TSA announced what it called “enhanced security measures” in which passengers will be required to power up their cell phones before boarding their flight. According to Department of Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson, TSA has “assesse[d] the global threat environment and reevaluate[d] the measures we take to promote aviation security.” Your cell phone is evidently part of a “global threat environment,” and so it must be turned on in order

Report: Deficit To Soon Skyrocket

The Congressional Budget Office’s (CBO) latest report says that although the federal deficit this year is the lowest of the Obama era, in the near future, it is expected to skyrocket to World War II heights. The years between 2009 and 2012 saw the largest recorded federal government deficits since 1946, based on percentage of the economy. And although the White House also reported that the deficit this year is the lowest of the Obama administration, there is little reason for celebration. Currently, the amount of federal debt is exactly 74 percent of the economy, and if measures aren’t taken to reign

It had to come sometime, and it came in one very bad week for the Democrats: that the many big problems with Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama finally grew too great for the press to ignore. Obama in his own different way is heading towards Nixon-like levels of weirdness, as, beaten down by the failures regarding his ventures, he appears to have quit his own job. A.B. Stoddard of the Hill says in effect he has stopped being president and chooses to live in a world of his own, shutting out the problems that have become overwhelming, giving dinners where he talks

CNN chose to describe the recently detained Jose Antonio Vargas, longtime journalist for U.S. publications and legal citizen of the Philippines, as a “symbol of the immigration debate.” The news network aired his documentary, Undocumented, several times. At the heart of Vargas’s viewpoint — and CNN’s decision to refer to him as a symbol, as opposed to, say, a scofflaw — is the notion that it is unfair to deny citizenship to him, considering his circumstances. Vargas came to the United States from the Philippines when he was 12 and didn’t learn he was in the country illegally until he was

CIUDAD HIDALGO, Mexico – Mexico is promising to stem the flow of Central American migrants to the United States by tightening control at its notoriously porous Guatemalan border. But messages from the country´s top two leaders in little more than a week have provided few details on how. And the scene on the ground is business as usual. Dozens of Central Americans who paid $1.50 a head could be seen this week crossing the broad Suchiate River on improvised rafts of inner tubes and wooden boards, in full view of Mexican police on the shore and immigration agents posted on

Mr. McCain, the highest-profile Republican of the U.S. Senate’s “Gang of Eight” that came up with amnesty as the solution to the immigration crisis — and it truly is a crisis — is finally taking a hard line against President Obama for his encouraging the tidal wave of illegal aliens swamping the southwestern border. “There has to be a halt to this,” Mr. McCain thundered Sunday on CNN. “That’s what we want, and the best way to do that is for planeloads of these young people to be returning to their country of origin

Millennials´ Political Views
Don´t Make Any Sense
Atlantic, by Derek Thompson    Original Article
Posted By: StormCnter- 7/16/2014 4:45:39 AM     Post Reply
Millennial politics is simple, really. Young people support big government, unless it costs any more money. They´re for smaller government, unless budget cuts scratch a program they´ve heard of. They´d like Washington to fix everything, just so long as it doesn´t run anything. That´s all from a new Reason Foundation poll surveying 2,000 young adults between the ages of 18 and 29. Millennials´ political views are, at best, in a stage of constant metamorphosis and, at worst, "totally incoherent," as Dylan Matthews puts it. It´s not just the Reason Foundation. In March, Pew came out with a similar survey of Millennial attitudes

One August morning nearly two decades ago, my mother woke me and put me in a cab. She handed me a jacket. “Baka malamig doon” were among the few words she said. (“It might be cold there.”) When I arrived at the Philippines’ Ninoy Aquino International Airport with her, my aunt and a family friend, I was introduced to a man I’d never seen. They told me he was my uncle. He held my hand as I boarded an airplane for the first time. It was 1993, and I was 12. My mother wanted to give me a better life,

Obama’s Counterterror Plan Has New

The idea of pulling nearly all American troops out of Afghanistan in 2016 suddenly seems pretty lousy, after so much of Iraq has collapsed under a similar scenario. When President Obama announced his plan to leave Afghanistan by the end of 2016, U.S. intelligence said it could be done safely. Now, intelligence and military leaders are privately warning that the U.S. counterterrorism forces could be needed there for much longer. During the internal administration debate earlier this year over the way forward in Afghanistan, the CIA supported a plan to degrade al Qaeda to the point that America could withdraw

AUSTIN — A Southern heritage group defeated Texas on Monday, celebrating a court decision expected to force Texas to issue license plates adorned with the Confederate battle flag. A federal appeals panel ruled 2-1 that the Department of Motor Vehicles had violated the Sons of Confederate Veterans’ free speech rights and engaged in “viewpoint discrimination” when it rejected its specialty plate in 2011. The judgment rekindled a loud debate among those who say the symbol honors Confederate heritage and others who see it as racially offensive and hurtful. An attorney for the Texas chapter, John McConnell, said the ruling reaffirms

A Fox News exclusive reported this morning by Jana Winter inexplicably buried the lede. Winter reports that several dead children have been discovered “washed up along the riverbank” of the Rio Grande, but fails to note that there have been no reports by the Obama administration on this. This indicates a pattern of covering up dead illegal alien kids by the Obama administration. It was two weeks before news was reported on the sole child death acknowledged by the Obama administration, Gilberto Ramos, a 15 year-old boy from Guatemala whose body was found in the Texas brush dead from the

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. [Snip] It can take up to 10 minutes for every radio, TV, cable and satellite provider to

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.

Sessions cites a recent report from the National Journal, in which reporter Major Garrett detailed how, despite the ongoing

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

“So far this year, Republicans in Congress have blocked every serious idea to strengthen the middle class.” –President Obama, weekly address, July 12, 2014 ~This has become a standard line in the president’s oratory, as part of making his case that he’s “acted this year to help working Americans on my own– when Congress won’t act.” The president started on this path on June 27, during a speech in Minnesota: “You know, sometimes I’m forcibly, you know, politic about how I say things, but I’m finding lately that I just want to say what’s on my mind.
