Hillary Clinton’s money woes
Washington Post, by Ruth Marcus

Original Article

Posted By:Dreadnought, 6/27/2014 11:12:25 PM

Dear Secretary Clinton, Please consider this in the nature of a friendly intervention. You have a money problem. It’s time to deal with it before it gets worse. Actually, you have two money problems. The first is how you talk about it. The second is how you collect it — or, to be more precise, the fact that you’re still frenetically collecting it. Let me be clear at the outset: The issue isn’t that you’re rich, or even that you and your husband became rich after leaving office. American voters don’t have a problem with wealthy candidates or even wealthy ex-presidents

I am more stunned that there are organizations that are willing to hire either Bill or Hillary for these vast fees, considering that lying is their strong suit.

Ruth, you´re only worried that Hillary might do some political damage to herself. Since she´s a Democrat, that´s unlikely because the media won´t give it traction. She could shut down a bridge and nothing would come of it.

My problem with Hillary is that she´ll make a lousy president. Probably not as lousy as BHO, but not much better either. Plus she´s getting old and in questionable health. It´s best that she not run. Hillary should take care of herself and enjoy her remaining years.

#2 "Hillary should take care of herself and enjoy her remaining years."

Preferably while wearing orange jumpsuits and manacles.

#2, you are so right. Hillary should kick back and enjoy her golden years, dandling her grand child on her knee on the back patio of her country estate. A well stocked liquor cabinet; plenty of Bushmill´s and ice, Guinness and Harp lager on tap, and a loaded side arm to keep Bill the heck away from her would be just the ticket. Perhaps a hobby could be taken up. Macrame, perhaps, or a little harmless target practice on low flying airliners with laser pointers...

These ludicrous speaking fees are protection money, pure and simple. No one actually wants to hear what this aging,corrupt, blubbery crone has to say. And, FTA: "But you don’t have to hit its foundation up for a $225,000 fee, even one you plan to donate to the Bill, Hillary & Chelsea Clinton Foundation. " As in you don´t have to fill your purse with this money...even if you plan to put it in your "back pocket".

Two observations: Hillary has done nothing for the poor or women. If she has, spell it out so I can understand. Hillary could not have been referring to Romney. He EARNED his money the old fashioned way by working for it not depending on his daddy. He was right when he said that 47 percenter´s won´t vote for him because they were lo info voters. It is a fact that they vote with their pocketbooks open because Obama promised to put hard working taxpayers money in them. They don´t watch the news and when they do, the MSM will only trash the Republicans not the Democrats. You are still in Hillary´s pocket. Not a pretty sight.

Maybe Hillary knows her political days are over and she is desperately trying to rake in the cash while she can. I truly do not believe she is up to a campaign physically. Her health just won´t permit it. However, she is a grifter at heart and must play the game until she unable to do so all the while filling her coffers. The love of money is the root of all evil. Add that love to political lust and you have the perfect storm that defines Bill and Hillary.

This could get really funny. Hillary thought a media-blitz book tour would give her public exposure in venues she could tightly control. It backfired big time because what the public got to see instead were her downcast, shifting eyes as she struggled to carefully parse words. They got to see her throw out excuses, and observed that when she feels threatened she resorts to absurd comments like "dead broke" ---comments which are laughable to most and cringeable to her supporters.
Apparently she never considered the consequences of overexposure. Once she´s started down this All Hillary All the Time path, it will be tough to pull back or she will appear to be retreating.
Hoisted by her own petard? Sweet.

First came the innovators. Then came the imitators. Then came the idiots. In politics, the bar is set substantially lower. No more spouses, children, or relatives of prominent politicians. They have accomplished very little.

Hillery isn´t poor. She has people falling all over themselves willing to giver her free money. A few phone calls, and she can get millions.

If all else fails, she can borrow money from Chelsea.

When the Hildabeast and/or Bill moan about the debt they had incurred in the White House, why do none of the people interviewing them refuse to ask the cogent question in public, "Was it not the fact that you ran up debt of massive legal fees defending the lying, cheating and stealing you had done...and didn´t you lose those cases anyway. So why are you bellyaching about the expenses for covering your own mistakes?"

Hillary´s character comes shining through. More and more her face evidences that out of touch, inauthentic, insincere self that she is. The Dems are in a big fix for 2016...They got no bench. I think they´re going to try and will her into the WH, but the country´s on to her.

And what´s going on with her book sales the past couple days... She was number 32 and falling fast a couple days ago on Amazon. Now she´s back into the teens. Something´s fishy... Is the DNC buying up a couple carloads of these boring tomes? I´ve heard of pumping a stock and it looks like someone´s pumping this book.

Illegal immigrants in D.C. fail
written driver’s test at 80% rate
Washington Times, by Crystal Hill    Original Article
Posted By: Dreadnought- 7/14/2014 10:34:00 PM     Post Reply
Four out of five illegal immigrants seeking driver’s licenses under a new D.C. law have failed a written knowledge test — a rocky start to a program that in its first two months has issued 268 licenses, according to city officials. The failure rate of 80 percent compares with a 58 percent failure rate for people seeking traditional driver’s licenses, the Department of Motor Vehicles told a D.C. Council committee. In addition, a check of the DMV website this week shows a massive backlog in appointments required to apply for the District’s “limited-purpose license.” The first available date for an

President Obama has described his foreign-policy doctrine as an attempt to hit singles, doubles and the occasional home run. But at this stage of the game, it looks as though he has popped out, grounded into a double play and been hit by a pitch. His attorney general, Eric Holder, said Sunday that the threat of undetectable explosives from Syria is “more frightening than anything” he has experienced in office. And the Wall Street Journal ran a front-page article Monday reporting that “the breadth of global instability now unfolding hasn’t been seen since the late 1970s” and that “U.S. global

ASHKELON, Israel — The roar of sirens echoed across this sun-kissed city Monday afternoon, and in a heartbeat the woman in the pink bikini was out of the pool, shepherding her three young kids to the nearest shelter. Up above, the vapor trail of a rocket fired from Gaza, just 10 miles down the coast, ripped the clear blue sky. And then, a boom: The rocket had been shot down. The kids jumped back in the seaside pool, and their mother returned to her tanning. Through it all, the lifeguard had barely stirred. Such is the dichotomous reality this week

In a stunning rebuke of President Obama’s tepid calls for Israel to show "restraint" in response to daily rocket fire on Israeli civilian targets by Hamas terror redoubts in Gaza, Canadian Prime Minister Stephen Harper, long considered Israel’s best friend and strongest defender, all but condemned President Obama by name for what he regards as Washington’s irresolute support for Israel during its time of grave crisis. In perhaps his most strongly worded statement to date, Prime Minister Harper proclaimed that self defense is "not merely an Israeli right" to be exercised only in the abstract, but an "Israeli obligation" that

Ponder for a minute what AFSCME has done. The union has severed ties with the United Negro College Fund because the Koch brothers contributed $25 million to the fund. Or rather, because the fund accepted the contribution. The money will pay for 3,000 scholarships and other needs. To read about this episode, go here. The hatred whipped up against the Koch brothers has become nearly frightening, I think. It is undemocratic, unsettling, intolerant. I’ve never liked it when left-leaning types say, “So-and-so scares me,” or, “This scares me.” There was a bumper sticker in the 2000s that said Bush Scares

Maybe it is time for a shake-up. President Obama’s second-term staffing was always going to be a risk. He abandoned his first term’s team of rivals for a closer-knit team of loyalists. The bet was that he was assured enough in the job to no longer need the in-house challenge — and that smooth-running consensus would compensate for the loss. The bet isn’t paying off. Overseas and at home, the administration seems besieged and befuddled. Obama is in danger of cementing an image of haplessness that would be hard to undo. The administration was surprised when Russian President Vladimir Putin

The dog days of summer are upon us, and with them, an extended slowdown in politics — as Americans spend their time working on their tans rather than studying up on the latest fights in the nation’s capital. Things won’t pick up in earnest again until after Labor Day, when the political campaigning reemerges in full force. As we head into this break, it’s worth pausing to review and figure out exactly what we’ve learned about the American political landscape — as it relates to the 2014 midterm and 2016 presidential elections, the hopes (or lack thereof) for legislative accomplishments,

GAZA CITY — Tens of thousands of panicked residents fled their homes in the northern Gaza Strip on Sunday after the Israeli military dropped leaflets from the sky warning those who stayed behind that they were risking their lives because a large, intense operation was imminent. Residents in Gaza were whipsawed by growing anxiety and frustration. More than 17,000 people poured into makeshift shelters as Israeli commandos entered the coastal enclave early Sunday to knock out a Hamas rocket-launch site. A brief gun battle with Hamas militants ensued and left four Israeli soldiers lightly wounded. The brief incursion by commandos

Municipal bond mutual fund investors are panicking this weekend after the U.S. Commonwealth of Puerto Rico’s Legislature passed a new law allowing public agencies to default on their debt. Although part of the United States, Puerto Rico in the 1990s made Spanish the official language and now about 86% of the island does not speak English in the home. Democrat Governor Alejandro Garcia Padilla, who has difficulty speaking English, told Bloomberg News last year that Puerto Rico had a constitutional and moral obligation to not default on the island’s $73 billion of debt. But he just passed a law giving

Border crisis scrambling the

Until now, the politics of immigration have been seen as a no-lose proposition for President Obama and the Democrats. If they could get a comprehensive overhaul passed, they would win. And if Republicans blocked it, the GOP would further alienate crucial Hispanic and moderate voters. But with the current crisis on the Southwest border, where authorities have apprehended tens of thousands of unaccompanied Central American children since October, that calculus may be shifting. Republicans and even some Democrats have accused Obama of being insufficiently engaged in a calamity that many say he should have seen coming.

Sarah Palin wants to impeach Barack Obama. In an op-ed article published last week, the former Republican vice presidential nominee declared that the crisis on the southern border (where young illegal immigrants are being detained) "is the last straw that makes the battered wife say, ´No, mas´." The Republican Speaker of the House, John Boehner, thinks that´s loco. (Technically, he said, "I disagree".) For Republicans hoping to avoid the kind of drama that might derail what looks to be a very good midterm election year, this kind of call is both a nuisance and a trend.

On April 1, the U.S. economy dropped a whopping 2.9 percent for the first three months of the year (no fooling). The American workforce participation rate fell to a 40-year low. One-third of people aged 18-29 have moved back in with their parents. Millions of Americans this summer will enjoy yet another “staycation”: They just can’t afford to go to the beach or the mountains, even for a week — again. (Snip) Forget that the United States is deep into what Mr. Obama dramatically declares a “humanitarian crisis,” that the Middle East is a powder keg about to blow, that Iraq has all but fallen to Islamist terrorists.

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.
