Chelsea Clinton Is The Perfect Millennial
And That’s Why Hillary Could Lose

The Federalist, by Ben Domenech

Original Article

Posted By:StormCnter, 6/25/2014 5:07:23 AM

“We don’t care about money here.” “Well, that’s because you have it.” “Would you repeat that?” “You don’t care about money because you’ve always had it.” —“The Aviator,” 2004 This Telegraph interview with Chelsea Clinton reveals a number of facets of the once and future first daughter which make her the perfect representative of her Millennial generation. She has the fickle but sincere flightiness over everything from career to diet, the waywardness of the overeducated and underchallenged, the comfort of comprehensive knowledge of the new sins, the inner child of Bart Simpson, the gluten allergy … but of course the gluten allergy. “Fried chicken is my

I don´t think Chelsea has done anything remarkable. She is the product of two politicians who love power and money above all else. She went to college; spent some time at Oxford where every time we saw pictures of her, she was falling drunk out of a car. She got where she is on her parents coattails. She´s been drifting around trying to find herself. Maybe motherhood will help her; she needs help in so many ways.

Like Obama- her parentage is questionable.
Pre extensive plastic surgery she looked just like convicted felon and former law partner of Hilary- Webster Hubbell.
The poor baby will resemble her genes- not the plastic surgeon´s creation - such as it is.
She does have her mothers thunder thighs and bad taste in clothes.
Send her comments about "not caring of money" amidst her unearned wealth to all the Millenials who are living in their parents basement and struggling to get a job and pay off their Liberal- I mean - student debt or as Mark Cuban calls it " the next big bubble.

Ever since the clintons came into power, people have picked on Chelsea, and I´ve thought it may be a way to tick off her nominal parents. She never asked for any of this limelight, but the jibes keep flowing.

Her lineage isn´t her fault (whose is?), and if her appearance isn´t pleasing to you, then please keep it to yourself.

If you were to look up the words "vapid" and "insipid" in the dictionary, you would see a picture of Miss Chelsea. The Bush daughters were not given any slack as far as criticism goes and certainly no Kudos or praise for the work they do, but yet we are always picking on poor Chelsea.

"...Money is the material shape of the principle that men who wish to deal with one another must deal by trade and give value for value. Money is not the tool of the moochers, who claim your product by tears, or of the looters, who take it from you by force. Money is made possible only by the men who produce. Is this what you consider evil?

“When you accept money in payment for your effort, you do so only on the conviction that you will exchange it for the product of the effort of others. It is not the moochers or the looters who give value to money..." ~ Ayn Rand

When you are spawned and reared in a cocoon of Moochers and Looters, how can you come out the other side without irreverence for value and legitimately earned money representing it and finding "your life´s cause" in giving away what was given to you and the Moochers/Looters you represent. For Chelsea her path is a full circle into the nullity from which she came.

I sure when Mezvinsky told his friends, "Well, Chelsea´s pregnant!" the immediate response was, "Who do you suspect?"

In addition to three useless degrees [no offense to The Three Degrees from the 1970´s], she sounds like she studied under the Gwyneth Paltrow school of vapid cluelessness.

Whenever I hear someone say, in that oh-so-trendy way that they have a gluten allergy, I channel Steve Martin from his stand-up days; I say, "Huh, that´s weird; my doctor told me the other day I wasn´t getting ENOUGH gluten!"

And has that bogus Clintonian Foundation paid a nickel out to anyone, other than high-priced escorts for Bill?

Take note of what vapidity looks like:

“It is frustrating, because who wants to grow up and follow their parents?” admits Chelsea.

Millions of people want to grow up and follow their parents when their parents are respectable and dignified, no matter how much money they have or don´t have.

“I’ve tried really hard to care about things that were very different from my parents. I was curious if I could care about [money] on some fundamental level, and I couldn’t.

As opposed to caring about money on a superficial level? That´s gibberish. Why try so hard NOT to be like your parents and care about what they care about unless you´ve got no there there?

That wasn’t the metric of success I wanted in my life.

She doesn´t say what "the metric of success" is that she wanted. Was it the typical childish "I want to make a difference"? What´s the metric, Chelsea?

I’ve talked about this to my friends who are doctors and whose parents are doctors, or who are lawyers and their parents are lawyers.

In such lofty circles, it´s easy to not care about money and to ponder one´s "metric".

It’s a funny thing to realise I feel called to this work both as a daughter and also as someone who believes I have contributions to make.”

She feels "called". A calling, dear, is something slightly more elevated and almost divine than doing a TV show where you do nothing of value. A "calling" is something you dedicate your life to in God´s service or in the service of mankind.

Chelsea, dear. You don´t have a calling yet. You´re still finding your metric. Keep at it, hon.

The Clinton´s, all three of them, are a small but malignant part of the apathy to dependency stage of the Tytler Cycle which we are now in, and rapidly leads back to the bondage outcome.

This outcome can reset the clock and start the journey to throw off the yokes of bondage once again if, and only if, God is looking with favor upon this nation. Otherwise, we are in for a century or more of misery, provided the world survives at all.

Look it up, and find that abundance and greed are precursors to the apathy stage.

One modern take away from Alexander Tytler´s observation and prediction is that the clock runs very slowly at first coming out of bondage, and then seems to accelerate exponentially, eventually reaching the speed of darkness as it completes the trip back into a new period of despair.

She doesn´t care about money. Yeah, right. The Clinton Foundation purchased a $10.5 million condo in NYC just for her and her wayward & usually missing husband not too long ago. She doesn´t work but NBC pays her a six-figure salary annually...which buys them contact with the First Grifters. Sure, Chels, tell us another one.

WHO gets a starting salary of $600K, fresh out of college? It really pays to be a DOB (daughter of Bill). This was a payoff, pure and simple. This is how the buddy system of politics works and it shows how the media is a full fledged member of that system .

Now Chelsea is ensconced in Bill & Hill´s charitable foundation. Quick question, how many poor people, which Hillary likes to play on TV, have their own charitable foundation? Anyway, Chelsea now has a comfy, well paid position. Why, I bet this will be even more profitable and create a better resume point than BO´s "Community Organizer" job. FOB can make donations (tax free) to the foundation and the payoffs go to Bill´s daughter and other buddies on the payroll. What percentage of the foundation actually goes to needy people?

What a sweet deal.

I love the comparison of HRC´s possible campaign to “remember how great Windows 95 was” and that a significant part of her base is clueless, vapid, and has no interest in an old, boring person like her. With no youth movement and unions on their knees, WHO are going to be the foot soldiers of liberals in 2016?

The twit doesn´t care about money simply because she´s never had to. Never had to earn a living, or balance a check book. Money has never and will never be a concern for Chelsea. Born into that highly exclusive ´one percent´ club her parents are currently trying to distance themselves from.

The three million dollar wedding, followed by the ten million dollar apartment, Christian Laboutins, plastic surgery, etc., and yet the poor dear looks like an unmade bed.

Chelsea would be well advised to drop the "too kewl" attitude and follow her parents -- whatever else they did, the senior Clintons never came across as airheads.

So this is what three degrees from our most prestigious, expensive universities produces these days.

Re #11, the jibes keep coming because she is a useless person who is being paid $600K per annum for being her parents´ child. And she is the poster child for inane privilege who keeps putting herself in our face.

I imagine she´d rather be who she is - jibes and all - than have to live like most of our young people who have to make it on their own. How many do you know who have a $10 million condo in Manhattan that they didn´t earn?

If she truly wanted to care about money, she would have tried to make it on her own. A lot of rich kids have done just that, including Mitt Romney.

She loves the easy life of a no show job and $600,000. Sounds a lot like the Mooch.

#11, Chelsea is 30, presumably an adult. If she chooses to go on TV and give interviews, she´s in the arena and thus subject to the same evaluation any other public figure would be.

She doesn´t seem to be aware that all she has is due to what her parents are--from her admissions to Ivy league schools to her $600,000 nearly no-show job at NBC to her $10 million apartment. She doesn´t have to care about money because she functions as a laundry for money funneled to the Clinton machine.

What is the "poor little girl...she had no choice in her parents?" garbage?

This kid was groomed from the day she was born to promote and proliferate the Clintonian agenda.

And Ann Richards had the audacity to state that George Bush was born with a silver spoon?

Chelsea has never even lived a second in her life without every whim satisfiend and every desire catered. How else can you graduate 3 superlative univesities without actually attending classes.

While the Brits complain about William & Harry regarding their privileged life...hey, they actually attended their classes and served in combat in the Brit military while being targets themselves.

Why didn´t Chelsea attend classes and join the US armed forces? That is what the US should be asking.

Chelsea Clinton lives in a fantasy world of white houses, private jets, fancy restaurants, phony awards and 7 figure bank accounts. She is an over educated no nothing with a padded resume of Wall St. access, NBC ´journolism´ and Queen of the Clinton Foundation - which is nothing more than a place for the Clinton´s to park their ill gotten millions for tax avoidance purposes. Fawned over by the northeastern elite yet wholly uncomfortable talking to the ´ordinary´ people of America. Like her mother, her cold, dead, lifeless eyes say it all. This, of course, makes her a perfect candidate for Senator of New York.

University of Michigan pays libertarian
student group to settle political
discrimination lawsuit
Journal [Ann Arbor, MI], by Staff    Original Article
Posted By: StormCnter- 7/11/2014 3:31:48 PM     Post Reply
ANN ARBOR — The University of Michigan has settled a lawsuit brought by a student libertarian club after the university spent thousands supporting leftist campus groups while denying funding to campus conservative and libertarian clubs. The university agreed to pay the U-M Young Americans for Liberty (YAL) a sum of $5,000 plus attorney fees for denying the student group funding toward an event hosted by anti-affirmative action activist Jennifer Gratz. Gratz spoke about the importance of intellectual diversity at the University last October.

Charles C. Johnson hadn´t covered the Mississippi Senate Republican primary until it was already over. Almost a week after incumbent U.S. Sen. Thad Cochran officially staved off a primary challenge from state Sen. Chris McDaniel — results that were certified this week — Johnson exploded onto the Mississippi scene in a major way. On June 30, Johnson published a story that was viewed in conservative circles as a bombshell — and in mainstream circles as a joke. Johnson, who calls himself an independent journalist and runs a site called GotNews, was told by an African-American, self-proclaimed reverend that he was

Why are racist attacks on black Republicans so underreported by the media? There has been much written about the racial rhetoric that has permeated political discourse since President Obama took office, and the media often highlights the racially inflammatory language used by some of his opponents. But racially charged language targeting black Republicans rarely receives much coverage, further fueling conservative suspicion of the mainstream media. Late last month, Gloreatha Scurry-Smith, a congressional candidate in Florida’s Fifth district, found that one of her campaign signs had been vandalized. Smith says she initially wasn’t surprised that one of her billboards had been defaced, but

An obscure human-trafficking law that passed Congress under the Bush administration with no objection is likely to be changed, much to the chagrin of refugee and immigration advocates. The Obama administration is seeking the ability to offer "voluntary removal" of undocumented children from Central America back to their home countries, which the trafficking law now prohibits. Republicans also are demanding the change as one of the conditions for approving $3.7 billion in emergency funding to deal with the surge of children on the border. This idea has raised alarm bells among immigration and refugee advocates, who say voluntary removal is often coerced

Until the current border crisis, talk about Gov. Rick Perry as a serious 2016 presidential contender has generally been met with a lot of eye-rolling. Now, however, the media and voters are seeing a Rick Perry largely absent in the 2012 race — shrewd, self-possessed, competent and calm. A number of circumstances work to his benefit in this situation, providing him with his first real opportunity to re-introduce himself to non-Texas voters: He has credibility on the issue, not only because he warned the federal government about the impending crisis but because he’s spent years dealing with enforcement issues. His compassionate stance

SAN DIEGO - The family that drew national attention when they were rescued at sea off their sailboat, Rebel Heart, in April is finally setting the record straight. Charlotte and Eric Kaufman and their two daughters were about 1,000 miles west of Cabo San Lucas in the Sea of Cortez when 1-year old Lyra became sick. That was when their adventure of a lifetime turned into a nightmare. It began with a fever, then a rash and then Lyra became lethargic.

Of all the headaches of her current book tour — the declining sales, the constant travel, the interviews that generated unkind headlines about her family’s wealth — this one may sting Hillary Rodham Clinton the most: Her memoir, “Hard Choices,” has just been toppled from its spot on the best-seller list by a sensational Clinton account by her longtime antagonist Edward Klein. It is a powerful statement about today’s publishing realities that Mr. Klein’s book, a 320-page unauthorized and barely sourced account full of implausible passages, including one about a physical altercation between Mrs. Clinton and President Obama, has landed atop

If you´re a media outlet that caters to a New York or California-based audience who consider themselves to possess liberal leanings, there´s an easy way to score points: Just talk about how awful Texas is. This is such a reliable way to get cheers from your audience that last year, The Daily Show literally ran a segment called "F**k You, Texas." The idea of Texas, and its 27 million people, as an easily-stereotyped monolith is a popular one outside of our borders. That´s something that became clear, once again, when Cosmopolitan sent reporter Jill Filipovic down to learn about what´s happening

[Video] Obama complained Thursday that he’s “lonely” doing all the work in Washington by himself, without Congress. “You know it is lonely, me just doing stuff. I’d love it if the Republicans did stuff too,” he said during his speech in Austin, Texas. “Sometimes I feel like saying to these guys: ‘I’m the guy doing my job. You must be the other guy’,” Obama remarked, quoting Mark Wahlberg’s character in “a great movie called ‘The Departed.’ A little violent for kids.”

Despite fiery statements issued by Hamas spokesmen over the past 48 hours, it was obvious Tuesday night that the Islamist movement was searching for ways to rid itself of the current escalation. Hamas feels that it has been forced into a confrontation with Israel – one that it did not want at this stage because of its increased isolation and financial crisis. The massive Israeli air strikes on the Gaza Strip over the past 24 hours have surprised Hamas and other Palestinian groups. Hamas apparently expected a limited response to the recent rocket attacks on Israeli cities and towns. But as the

President Obama on Thursday claimed he is “not that partisan of a guy” as he mocked calls in the Republican Party for his impeachment. The president spent much of his address in Austin, Texas, hammering congressional Republicans, saying they have "blocked or voted down every serious idea to strengthen the middle class." “I’m just telling the truth now," Obama said. "I don´t have to run for office again so I can just let her rip.” He teed off on Republicans such as Sarah Palin who have suggested in recent days that he be impeached, and dismissed Speaker John Boehner´s (R-Ohio) proposed lawsuit

Rick Perry (R-TX) inviting him to a meeting with President Obama regarding the Texas border crisis was from Valerie Jarrett.

President Obama’s ultimate weakness may be that he believes his own blarney. A year ago, Mr. Obama boasted in a “fireside” Web chat that his “is the most transparent administration in history.” There was not the slightest hint of irony. He may actually believe it. But three-dozen organizations representing newspapermen and other journalists, mostly liberals, beg to differ. In a testy letter to the president on Tuesday, the group decried the “slick non-answers” and cold shoulders they’re getting from Mr. Obama’s representatives, who have restricted access to any information they consider embarrassing to the administration. “The stifling of free expression,” the signers

Pelosi accused Bush of being guilty of impeachable offense saying he "sent us into a war based on a false representation of the treat of weapons of mass destruction." But she added after the "shameful, irresponsible an wrong" attempted impeachment of President Bill Clinton she "did not want

His top staffers are promoting these stops on Twitter with the hashtag #TheBearIsLoose — a term one of Obama’s aides coined in 2008 when the candidate would defy his schedule.
