Hillary Clinton is past her time
Washington Examiner [DC], by Noemie Emery

Original Article

Posted By:StormCnter, 7/9/2014 5:07:13 AM

Fate hasn´t been kind to Hillary Clinton, at least not in its most recent phase. In 2008, when the plate was set for the national Democrats, she lost the nomination to Barack Obama, of scant years and no gravitas, who soared out of nowhere to wrench destiny from her on the unspecified promise of "change." Now, "change" has come, and people don´t like it. Iraq changed from a safe, stable ally (just ask Obama) to a terrorist haven, one of the reasons why, though no fellow Democrats seem likely to edge her, her chances of winning the White House seem dim.

When other countries and big banks from those countries stop using the dollar for a base currency,the US will never be able to continue borrowing at the mad rate Obama has.

The left runs around bragging about the 6.1% uneploymentrate but on the other hand continue to dole out billions a month to already rich people and business.At some poit this funny money won´t have any value.

The way currency keeps it´s value is a thriving middle class creating new,real wealth and that ain´t happenig because Obamais stonewalling that type of path to prosperity.`

Saw the Dinesh D´Souza movie yesterday. I didn´t know that the Hildabeast met Saul Alinsky at least twice. She will be bad news if elected, probably worse than obama.

Right on #4: We saw America yesterday with a theater full of old white people!

Americans of both political stripes must be made aware of the Alinski/Ayres Threat to our republic. Indeed, since neither McCain nor Romney broadcast Obama´s and PIAPS´ long connection to that socialist movement, the Republican candidate in 2016 must do so, no matter who the DRat opponent is. It is not something Lo-Fo voters can be allowed to ignore this time.

This is a much different country than it was in 2008. Since then, millions of illegals have poured in and added 3rd-world-like decay to population centers. Millions of formerly self-sufficient people have slipped into a life of government dependency. And although this is speculation, vote fraud appears more prevelent. So, even if the GOP changes its ways and nominates an outstanding candidate, and runs an effective campaign with a memorable message, a model where Republicans can win may not exist.

Hillary´s Fiction book has bombed, and is currently #102 on Amazon. ´Blood Feud´ by Edward Klein about the Obamas and Clintons hate scene is currently #7 on Amazon. His book just can´t be good news for either Marxist family.

Just off hand, and without too much thought, I´d say both political families are toast. Someone will soon appear over the Horizon as the new Progressive savior. Probably both political parties each have one ready at the head of the line. I see Romney who believes in Amnesty is the current Republican favorite in media circles.

Go figure.

Noemie Emery makes a solid case for the Beast being caught between the heat of the fire and the hot frying pan.
Not a good place to be caught, exposed, fried up !
Her only chance is the stupid tax thieving Lo Fo peasants,
but she must not say anything truthful about Hussein.

Hitlery is estopped from saying ANYthing truthful. Stuck between the rock and the hard place, something like that. A fitting end. And that´s BEFORE all the truth comes out again about all the "friends", she and Slick Willie did away with!

The problem is, liberals and people who lean left are always looking for the next magician to perform the trick that validates their liberal beliefs. These are the people that are overweight and want a pill to magically melt away the extra pounds instead of using diet and exercise to do it. They insist we ALL use the pills. But then we find out about the side effects.

The liberal press is not asking what is wrong with liberal policies. They are asking why BO is incompetent to deliver them. BOCare isn´t fundamentally wrong, it was just executed badly. That is BO and Sebelius´ fault, right? Liberal congressmen are avoiding BO because of the stench of failure that is following him around. But they are still advocating the same policies.

So Hilary can come in and promise the same old liberal dreams but SHE will carry them out better. It´s funny but that is probably true. The level of incompetence in this administration is mind boggling. Almost anyone would be better. The policies would still fail because the IDEAS are fundamentally flawed but they wouldn´t fail so spectacularly.

Until the country wakes up to the idea that liberalism is a FAILED philosophy, people like Hillary will have a chance.

One neat thing though. If Hillary does run, BO will not support her because of the animosity between them. Hillary will then feel free to go after BO to distance herself from him. It could get beautifully ugly. I´d pay real money to see that.

Klein´s book may appear harsh to both the Obamas (including Jarrett) and the Clintons, but it´s clearly more sympathetic to Bill & Hill. Klein accepts as perfectly normal their sense of entitlement to the highest office in the land as if they were considering bidding on a beach house. I am reminded of the execrable Chelsea Clinton´s quote from Klein´s previous book: ´You deserve the presidency, Mom!´

We rail against the ideology and the policies of the Obamas and the Clintons in nearly every post on this site but they are very alike in their cynical, approach to vote-getting (see also: GOP consultants). Ideas and values are a distant memory when you are simply trying to shove as many livestock into a pen as possible. Certainly this explains the current flood of illegals.

Klein matter-of-factly details both camps´ covert and overt moves to get around campaign finance laws - all the while moaning hypocritically about money in politics.

Hillary is/was Obama´s puppet/parrot. She danced like a marionette and parroted Obama´s lies at Obama´s pleasure and his dictate. She sure doesn´t project the picture of a strong woman leader to me at all. She may of thought that being SOS would be a good move for her future Presidential ambitions, but same was actually a noose around her neck, just waiting to tighten.

“My accomplishments as Secretary of State? Well, I´m glad you asked! My proudest accomplishment in which I take the most pride, mostly because of the opposition it faced early on, you know… the remnants of prior situations and mindsets that were too narrowly focused in a manner whereby they may have overlooked the bigger picture and we didn’t do that and I’m proud of that. Very proud. I would say that’s a major accomplishment.”

The Beast just needs a catchy theme song such as: The Old Gray Mare Ain´t What She Used To Be. If this country would vote for the moronic, Muslim, metrosexual, Marxist from Kenya it could vote for anyone. Only today I was behind a car in traffic that had a Dumb and Dumber Bumper Sticker and beside it Hillary 2016.

Our Hostess (#23) knows whereof she speaks. Hillary´s reply to her accomplishments demonstrates what to expect when asked a non-scripted question. Not unlike Obama in that respect. As much anger as we may feel against the administration, the real perpetrators of the evil agenda against America is the education system and the Kneepad media, which is totally overrun with Marxists and controls the thought processes of the LoFo voters.

We can probably forestall the inevitable for a short time, but there will eventually be a terrorist act so unfathomable that the West will have no choice but to unite and destroy radical Islam or risk a genocidal uprising against all Muslims which will eventually destroy hundreds of millions of lives in the process. Quite possibly the ultimate intent of the globalists.

Sir Edmund. Need I say more. "Fate has not been kind..." I submit it had nothing to do with fate, and everything to do with the aforementioned being a lying, scheming, low-down, lying, double-dealing woman, with no accomplishments save her marriage to one Slick Willie. The sad part is that I have heard her speak, and like her "husband", she can use what intelligence she has. Unfortunately, it was always for evil ends.

Hillary will be 68 years old in 2016 and aged too far from alcohol induced falls into looming dementia. She will be as incompetent as Obama. Bill is already on the fast track to that condition.
The leading progressives are also far over the hill and won´t give up their waning power to the equally inept minions.
There seems to be no one waiting in the wings except more of the same.
The GOP is reaching the exact turning point by nominating social misfits and holding
onto over the hill power grabbers.
At least there are leaders waiting just off stage that the liberals do not have.
Can we hold the world off long enough to change the scene?

Sen. Marco Rubio argued that the nation´s immigration laws need to be overhauled and said that Hillary Clinton would be a flawed candidate for president. "I just think she´s a 20th century candidate," he said. "I think she does not offer an agenda for moving America forward in the 21st century, at least not up till now." The Florida Republican made his comments in the second half of a two-part interview with Morning Edition host Steve Inskeep on Tuesday. Rubio also said he will make a decision about whether to run for president himself sometime within the next few months.

With the D.C. Circuit Court’s decision today that Obamacare, as written, doesn’t authorize the provision of subsidies on federal health-care exchanges — it just does so for those established by states — residents of 36 states may stop receiving insurance subsidies under the law. President Obama could well ignore the decision, which he asserts is perfectly legal, but he’ll also certainly appeal it — either to an en banc hearing of the D.C. Circuit Court (more judges than the three that just heard it) or to the Supreme Court. If the president chooses to ignore the ruling, we can bet

Democratic polling firm Public Policy Polling (PPP) has released a new poll of the North Carolina Senate race, featuring Democratic incumbent Kay Hagan squaring off against Republican state house speaker Thom Tillis, with ostensibly good news for the Democrat: She’s up seven points and expanded on her lead. Their headline: “Hagan continues to grow lead.” But dig a little deeper and the story is mixed for the Democrat. Hagan’s seven-point lead is due largely to the libertarian candidate, who is polling 8 percent. In no cycle since 1986 has the libertarian pulled more than 3.4 percent in North Carolina; on

She’s offered to “add an exclamation point.” She’s even signed a letter calling on Hillary Clinton, who leads polls of Democrats by up to 50 points, to run for president. And yet there they were on Friday morning, the people who wanted Warren to reconsider. Days before this year’s Netroots Nation conference, the annual gathering of the online left, an Obama campaign veteran launched a draft campaign called Ready for Warren.

When President Obama wraps up his 16-day summer break next month on Martha´s Vineyard, Mass., he will have taken all or part of 141 days of vacation, time split between summers on the island, winters in his native Hawaii and birthday weekends at his Chicago home. Obama has been criticized for taking costly and lengthy vacations, especially compared to the short trips most Americans take. The U.S. Travel Association told Secrets that the average American vacation lasts just 3.7 days. But his 141 days out of Washington are far less than the 378 former President George W. Bush took in

He scolded the Russian-backed, Russian-trained and Russian-armed separatists, who have been busy “removing bodies from the crash site, oftentimes without the care that we would normally expect from a tragedy like this,” adding: “This is the kind of behavior that has no place in the community of nations.” And he warned that, “If Russia continues to violate Ukraine’s sovereignty .

California Senator Barbara Feinstein has demanded that Vladimir Putin “man up” and admit that pro-Russian separatists downed MH17, mistaking it for a Ukrainian transport plane. That this is true is obvious to all except Putin’s propaganda machine that is frantically churning out absurd conspiracy theories, while Putin lies low and limits himself to vague claims of Ukrainian guilt. Feinstein may not understand that Putin’s “manning up” could spell the end of his regime and he can’t admit the truth. Instead, Putin will ramp up his appeals for peace (with the very thugs who shot down MH17, it is now clear), pledge

A wealthy venture capitalist and major Obama donor is fighting tooth-and-nail to prevent others from accessing his private Northern California beach, according to Bloomberg News. Vinod Khosla’s support for Obama has paid off in the form of millions in taxpayer subsidies for green energy companies in which he has invested. A prominent environmentalist, Khosla nevertheless cherishes his control over a private beach alongside his 56-acre property near San Francisco—which he bought for $32.5 million—Bloomberg reported on Monday. Khosla, who started his own venture capital firm a decade ago, is fighting a lawsuit brought in state court by the nonprofit Surfrider Foundation, which describes

A sinking presidency,

If you think President Obama’s administration has unraveled, the denouement could be just beginning. Its real consequence would come when congressional Democrats, who have remained extremely loyal to the president, begin to split from him. If they do — and November election losses could drive that — America could see a presidency come apart. The latest nationwide Quinnipiac poll shows Mr. Obama’s deepening trouble. A plurality of respondents (45 percent) said the country would have been better off if Mitt Romney had won in 2012, and Mr. Obama rated first (33 percent) in voting for America’s worst post-World War II

Fed appeals court panel says
most Obamacare subsidies illegal

In a potentially crippling blow to Obamacare, a federal appeals court panel declared Tuesday that government subsidies worth billions of dollars that helped 4.7 million people buy insurance on HealthCare.gov are illegal. The 2-1 ruling said such subsidies can be granted only to people who bought insurance in an Obamacare exchange run by an individual state or the District of Columbia—not on the federally run exchange HealthCare.gov. "Section 36B plainly makes subsidies available in the Exchanges established by states," wrote Senior Circuit Judge Raymond Randolph in his majority opinion, where he was joined by Judge Thomas Griffith.

Illinois Sen. Dick Durbin on Tuesday urged Walgreen Co. to reconsider a possible move of its headquarters to Switzerland to lower its U.S. tax bill. In a letter to Walgreen Chief Executive Gregory Wasson, Durbin said the company could face a backlash from its customers. “I believe you will find that your customers are deeply patriotic and will not support Walgreen’s decision to turn its back on the United States,” Durbin wrote. “Nearly all of your $2.5 billion in profits earned last year were from sales to U.S. taxpaying customers.” The senator ended his letter with a twist on Walgreen’s

WASHINGTON— President Barack Obama said Joe Biden would make a "superb" president, but questioned whether his vice president or potential rival Hillary Clinton would want to endure another campaign for the White House, a media report Monday said. Obama, in an interview with the New Yorker, said Biden "has seen the job up close, he knows what the job entails. He understands how to separate what´s really important from what´s less important. I think he´s got great people skills. He enjoys politics, and he´s got important relationships up on the Hill (in Congress) that would serve him well." "Joe would

Bill Clinton reportedly has a buxom blond mistress who visits so often when Hillary Clinton isn’t home in Chappaqua that the former president’s Secret Service detail have given her an unofficial code name: Energizer. This is according to Ronald Kessler in “The First Family Detail: Secret Service Agents Reveal the Hidden Lives of Presidents,” due Aug. 5 from Crown Forum.

The NAACP Legal Defense Fund has filed a class action lawsuit against the city of Detroit for water shutoffs that members claim are racially motivated. The Detroit Water and Sewerage Department stopped service to about 7,200 buildings with overdue bills in June, compared to 1,570 in the same month last year. The issue gained national attention last month after activists appealed to the United Nations for help. The shutoffs are “being done in a discriminatory fashion,” the NAACP’s Veronica Joice told a local CBS affiliate. “They should at least take a look at whether there’s a better way to do this that doesn’t affect the most vulnerable citizens

Days after IRS officials said in a sworn statement that former top agency employee Lois G. Lerner’s computer memory had been wiped clean, the agency put out word to contractors Monday that it needs help to destroy at least another 3,200 hard drives. The Internal Revenue Service solicitation for “media destruction” services reflects an otherwise routine job to protect sensitive taxpayer information, but it was made while the agency’s record destruction practices remain under a sharp congressional spotlight. Congressional investigators of the IRS targeting of conservative groups have been hampered by the unexplained destruction of emails and other records of Ms. Lerner,

WASHINGTON —Polarization and partisanship are a plague on American politics. Political scientists have found that the two parties have each grown more ideologically homogeneous since the 1970s. The Senate hasn’t been so polarized since Reconstruction; the House has not been so divided since around 1900. As measured by laws passed, the current Congress is on track to be among the least productive in our republic’s history. How did this happen? One of the main causes has not gotten enough attention: the party primary system. The reasons behind the shocking primary defeat last month of Representative Eric Cantor of Virginia, who

Former President Bill Clinton said his wife Hillary Clinton needs time to think about what her message to voters would be if she runs for president in 2016. She "really does need some time to think through this,” now that her memoir Hard Choices has been published, he said in an interview with CNN. "We´ve reached a point in our life when we think you really shouldn´t run for office if you don´t have a clear idea of what you can do and a unique contribution you can make and you can outline that," Clinton added. "Now that the book is done,
