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.`

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.

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. Due to immigration and lack of family planning the Gene Pool is shrinking more rapidly than you think.

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.

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?

Rick Perry: Flip Senate control

COLUMBIA, S.C. - The Republican Party must control Congress in order to solve national problems like immigration, Gov. Rick Perry, R-Texas, said Wednesday during a fundraiser for the South Carolina Republican Party. Despite recently being indicted on two felony counts of abuse of power, Perry visited the Palmetto State - the first Southern state to hold a primary during presidential elections - right after spending a few days in New Hampshire, which holds the second nominating contest in the country. In addition to the fundraiser, Perry had time to watch Texas A&M, his alma mater, take on the University of

´No strategy´ a gift-wrapped gaffe

There are gaffes — and then there are gaffes. President Obama´s admission in a press conference Thursday that “we don’t have a strategy yet” for a broader confrontation with the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria is a real problem for the White House. Rather than the average inartful comment that disappears after a few news cycles, the no-strategy line could help cement charges that Obama lacks the competency to handle multiple crises at once. A central component of the GOP´s strategy for the midterms is to paint Obama as either overwhelmed by the challenges of his office or simply too detached to

MOSCOW, Russia – Where U.S. President Barack Obama and German Chancellor Angela Merkel have failed to make Russian President Vladimir Putin acknowledge his ever-more-overt invasion of Ukraine and think about pulling back, Valentina Melnikova, the head of Russia’s famous Soldiers’ Mothers Committee, might just have a chance. Early Thursday morning, Melnikova started getting phone calls from Russian army bosses. All of them, from the deputy defense minister to the paratrooper division commanders, wanted to meet with the great matriarch of the Russian military. She had accused the entire high command, along with Commander-in-Chief Vladimir Putin of invading Ukraine and of committing

F-16s grounded. Blackhawks covered in foam. Just two Army brigades combat ready. Half the cruiser fleet rendered inoperable. New nukes delayed—for two years. The percentage of the economy devoted to defense at pre-9/11 levels. Bipartisan experts terrified of the consequences. America’s deterrent—our ability to discourage and respond to aggression—is gone. It was thrown away. First, President Obama cut defense massively, constraining the Pentagon and hollowing out the force. He was helped not only by Democrats in Congress but also by Republicans, who agreed to the budget sequester in 2011. Democrats want more money for social programs; Republicans want to cut the

Stating only the obvious, President Obama acknowledged Thursday that he is flummoxed at the moment as to how the U.S. should deal with ISIS, whose rampaging barbarians advertised the mass killing of roughly 100 prisoners shortly before he spoke. “We don’t have a strategy yet,” the President advised in a remark likely to indelibly stamp the remainder of his administration, because he offered no sign that the United States will have a sweeping anti-ISIS action plan in the foreseeable future. Obama freighted his latest press conference remarks about ISIS with so many conditions for applying U.S. military power that he has, in

Wisconsin has created a new type of political supervillain by combining the most reprehensible attributes of this nation’s two most infamous ogres of the last century — Joseph McCarthy and Richard Nixon. Start with McCarthy’s reckless and unsubstantiated allegations against random names on a list, his endless investigations that produced nothing but press coverage and ruined lives. Then take Nixon’s vindictiveness, his desire to use the mechanisms of state to crush his political enemies, and remove the legal impediments that kept him from doing much about it.

The life of a child actor is often nasty, brutish and short (Google Macaulay Culkin).

Speaking from her summer home in Maine, the 58-year-old says her Disney days were magical, “especially for a girl from the English countryside.” True, she wasn’t just any country girl: Parents Roy and Kay Dotrice were

The conventional wisdom is that Hillary Clinton will make her announcement that she is trying for a second time to become the Democratic nominee for president sometime in 2015. She will then go on to easily get nominated, and coast to a solid victory in the 2016 general election against any Republican nominee. Clinton’s presumed path to victory relies on a number of factors, including that her candidacy will enable Democrats to excite another key element of their base — female voters, particularly single women, much as Obama did in 2008 and 2012 with African American voters. If she runs, she

September is upon us, nearly the end of our rainy season. Drat. I’m always sad to see it go. In a typical year, about sixteen inches of precipitation falls on the Marfa Plateau, most of it during a summer-long monsoon. Unwelcome periods of drouth routinely descend and mar those expectations, but when the weather ticks along as it should, rain begins speckling the earth in May and manages to generate a little more momentum in June. By July, thunderheads build up nearly every afternoon, culminating in great, towering blue and silver cities overhead. This is a marvelous situation when it works

The Republican National Committee is on track to spend more than $100 million in the midterm campaign, with virtually every dime plowed into the party’s new digital voter-turnout program. If the program is effective, Republican campaigns will have access to a modern get-out-the-vote operation that has been the hallmark of the Democrats’ success in recent election cycles. But if it fails to deliver as advertised, Republican candidates will be stuck with another subpar voter turnout program and without the resources the GOP traditionally sent to their campaigns in midterm years. The RNC is set this week to announce the deployment of yet additional

In a statement from the White House on Thursday, President Obama addressed the world on fire. ISIS terrorists are losing arms and equipment because of U.S. strikes, Obama said, adding that “our focus right now is to protect American personnel on the ground in Iraq.” However, he also cautioned against rushing in. "I don´t want to put the cart before the horse, we don´t have a strategy yet," he said. The Daily Beast reported that the president asked for a war plan for ISIS in Syria by Friday.

I feel confident in saying that most Americans are disgusted by the perfectly legal practice of U.S. companies avoiding taxes by incorporating in another country. So why does it take a whopper of a story to get the media to pay attention? Burger King, as you know, is moving to buy the Canadian chain Tim Hortons, and this is more about dollars than doughnuts. The hamburger giant plans to move its headquarters to Canada, thereby slashing its Treasury tax bill. The White House doesn’t like it. Democrats don’t like it. The Republicans don’t like it.

President Obama’s plan to schmooze Wall Street honchos at a Westchester fund-raiser Friday is grounding wealthy weekenders who planned to fly to the Hamptons or Nantucket for the Labor Day holiday. The FAA has issued a no-fly warning that extends for most of Friday and all day Saturday through Sunday, grounding seaplanes to East Hampton, Montauk, Martha’s Vineyard and Nantucket.

The Minnesota man who died alongside fellow ISIS fighters in Syria was "not a terrorist," his cousin claims. Douglas McAuthur McCain died over the weekend in radical-on-radical clashes in Syria. He lived in California before he traveled to Syria earlier this year to join other Islamic State terrorists. But his heartbroken cousin only remembers a humble, kind man — not a militant. "We would never believe him to be involved in anything like this. He´s just a regular person." Kanyata McCain told NBC News. "My cousin is not a terrorist." She said McCain converted to Islam about 10 years ago. While he had a

FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla.— Former Republican Gov. Charlie Crist continued his political comeback Tuesday as Democratic voters selected him as their nominee to challenge Republican Gov. Rick Scott in Florida, one of four states where voters were choosing candidates for statewide office. Crist easily defeated former state Sen. Nan Rich, while Scott coasted in his own primary toward a general election matching the state’s last two Republican governors. Both have struggled with sagging approval ratings and run-ins with conservatives. “It’s a wonderful night,” Crist declared after accepting a concession call from Rich. Crist said the strong showing is a sign that Democrats

CULLMAN, Ala. — California is looking to bar the “Stars and Bars.” A bill sits on Gov. Jerry Brown’s desk to ban California from displaying or selling the Confederate flag or objects with images of it. The state’s Legislature passed the bill nearly unanimously last week. Assemblyman Isadore Hall III, D-Compton, introduced the legislation after his mother discovered the Capitol gift shop sold a replica of Confederate money that contained a picture of the flag, according to the L.A. Times. The lone dissenting vote among the 67 cast was from former California GOP gubernatorial candidate Tim Donnelly of Twin Peaks. He argued

The mayor of Lynn, Mass. says that some of the illegal aliens from Guatemala who are enrolled in her city’s public schools are adults with graying hair and “more wrinkles than I have.” “They are not all children,” Judith Flanagan Kennedy told reporters at a press conference at the National Press Club in Washington, D.C. on Wednesday. “One of the things that we did notice when we were processing some of these students coming in was that they were adults,” she said. She added that the federal government will not allow school officials to verify their ages even though one

The American Sociological Association, the leading professional organization for American sociologists, is now granting its members much greater leeway in how to define their gender identities. Previously, the ASA’s membership surveys only allowed three choices of gender: “male,” “female” and “prefer not to answer.” Now, as reported at Inside Higher Ed, members will have no fewer than seven options for their gender choice, with the added ability to select “all that apply.” The added options include “transgender male/transgender man,” “transgender female/transgender woman,” “genderqueer/gender non-conforming,” or another “preferred identity” of their choice not explicitly named. “Genderqueer” is defined by the Gender

The last two Republican candidates for president have been among the weakest GOP candidates in 50 years. Barack Obama presented Mitt Romney with a gift in 2012: A struggling economy, sluggish growth, a paucity of jobs, and a health care law that was extremely unpopular. In what should have been a landslide rejection of Obama´s policies, Romney flubbed it big time and allowed his opponent to define him - and Republicans - in the most unflattering way imaginable. You would have hoped that Romney would have retired from the public arena and kept a low profile as other losers have done in

President Barack Obama said during a Thursday press conference that his administration doesn´t have a plan worked out yet for defeating the Islamic State of Iraq and al-Sham (ISIS) in Syria. [Snip] ´What I´ve seen in some of the news reports suggests that folks are getting a little further ahead of where we´re at than we currently are,´ Obama cautioned. He mentioned four times his intention to seek advice from Capitol Hill before deploying more military assets in the Middle East, likely in response to concerns from members of the House and Senate that he was unconstitutionally freezing them out.

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, part of the Department of Transportation, published last week an "advanced notice of proposed rulemaking" on "vehicle-to-vehicle communications." What NHTSA is proposing could begin a transformation in the American transportation system that makes our lives better and freer — or gives government more power over where we go and when. In announcing its proposed rulemaking, NHTSA is stressing its intention to protect the "privacy" of American drivers. "This document initiates rulemaking that would propose to create a new Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard, FMVSS No. 150, to require vehicle-to-vehicle communication capability for light vehicles,"
