How Hillary Will Fail Liberals
Creators Syndicate, by Steve Chapman

Original Article

Posted By:garnet, 8/14/2014 10:14:34 AM

Hillary Clinton has obvious attractions for liberals. She offers a solid chance of extending Democratic occupancy of the White House for four or eight years. She would realize the dream of a female president. She would appoint justices to stop the rightward drift of the Supreme Court. She would drive the tea party even crazier. Not to mention that she´s one of them. She tried to overhaul health insurance long before Obamacare. When she was a senator, the liberal blog Daily Kos gave her a lifetime rating of 94.4 (100 being the most liberal), the same as Ted Kennedy.

Seems to make sense. I´m reasonably certain The Beast was born in the USA, and was even a Goldwater Girl. Plus she is somewhat politically savvy. But listening to that screech for 4/8 years, oy vay!

Up front, I don´t like her. Who wants a run down, trod upon, worn out, dull grandmother for president of a vibrant, industrial, lively, strong nation?

The rightward drift of the Supreme Court?! Obamacare found to be constitutional, overturning DOMA are not instances of a rightward drift.

All liberals fail liberals but not for the reason they think. When the progressive policy inevitably does more damage than good, it´s always the implementer that is blamed, not the policy. Liberalism is a mental disorder incapable of learning due to emotion over logic, and olympic skills of denial.

Faustian or not, I simply don´t want that bargain nor Hillary to show up within a mile of the White House. The destruction she will visit on the country is orders of magnitude greater than any failure of Liberal expectations. IMO she will see the disaster the ´Rats meet with at the hands of the voters in ´14 and call it quits.

An inveterate political opportunist, Hillary! moved to a very liberal state, New York, where voters would elect her on name recognition alone without giving it too much thought, and they followed through predictably. Her public career has been characterized by ideological obfuscation, although she is at (broad) bottom an Alinskyite leftist, miles to the left of her sometimes pragmatic husband. Her accomplishments are few, her reputation enormous in Lofo Nation. There´s really nothing substantial about her other than what she keeps covered up by those dumpy pantsuits. Everything else is just legend. And all of that´s a lie.

In Arkansas, It´s Tom Cotton

Real Clear Politics, by Caitlin Huey-Burns    Original Article

LAKE VILLAGE, Ark. -- Tom Cotton has been traveling this large, rural state in a camouflage-painted RV, on the hunt for an “elusive” and “mysterious” Arkansan. This enigmatic figure is one who invariably sides with President Obama on the issues -- a stance generally viewed with distain in a state that voted for Mitt Romney by 24 percentage points in 2012. “I can’t find him anywhere I go in Arkansas!” the Republican congressman tells a group of supporters gathered last week at JJ’s Lakeside Café, located here in the southeastern part of the state, a region that traditionally has voted

LITTLE ROCK, Ark.—I first visited this town as an investigative reporter trying to learn why authorities had railroaded a man named James Dean Walker for a sensational 1963 shootout in which a North Little Rock policeman was killed. Walker had found Jesus behind bars, earned a degree, started a Jaycees chapter, and been a model prisoner. But North Little Rock cops invariably rallied to prevent his parole and one day Walker walked away from a furlough. He showed up in California where he lived peacefully until he was picked up a few years later. There was some evidence that Walker was innocent—and

The ground under Bruce Braley has shifted. The Democratic U.S. Senate candidate is 6 points behind his GOP rival, Joni Ernst, according to The Des Moines Register´s new Iowa Poll of likely voters. Ernst leads 44 percent to 38 percent in a race that has for months been considered deadlocked. She leads nearly 4-1 with rural voters, and is up double digits with independents. "Very interesting, and good news not just for Ernst but also for the GOP´s chances of taking the U.S. Senate," said national political prognosticator Larry Sabato of "Sabato´s Crystal Ball."

Eric Holder Out, Special

Attorney General Eric Holder is resigning at long last. Good riddance. (If President Obama wants to stay the course, I would suggest Al Sharpton as a replacement. Nobody can frustrate legal process like Big Al. Sharpton effortlessly dodges lawsuits and tax collectors. He’s got the kind of legal experience that makes him a perfect fit at the Justice Department.) Holder is the legal ringleader for today’s Democrats and their noxious culture of corruption. After being held in criminal contempt of Congress in June 2012 -- the first such citation against a sitting attorney general in American history -- for a while he

On 30 September 2011 Barack Obama woke up to the news that his order to kill Anwar al-Awlaki, an American citizen living in Yemen, in a drone attack had been carried out successfully. That afternoon, according to Mark Helperin and John Heilemann’s book Double Down, the US president addressed his inner core in the White House Roosevelt room about issues on which he felt he should be truer to his progressive roots. Three years later, he is still wrestling with most of them. There was climate change: last week his administration confirmed it would give nothing to assist poor countries to

The federal government recently began its seventh year of considering whether to approve construction of the Keystone XL pipeline. Nearly all that time has passed under the administration of President Obama, who seems content never to decide the pipeline´s fate. That way, it wouldn´t be built, which would please the president´s supporters on the liberal environmental fringe, but would never be explicitly rejected, which could offend everybody else. It´s striking to see an administration stonewalling an issue with so much popular support on the other side. A Washington Post-ABC News poll in March found that 65 percent favor building the pipeline,

So Eric Holder is stepping down as attorney general of the United States, reportedly just as soon as a successor is named and confirmed.(Snip) From A. Mitchell Palmer (who rounded up and deported real and imagined Communists) to John Mitchell (convicted on perjury charges related to Watergate) to Janet Reno (who ordered the disastrous assault on the Branch Davidians and spent years threatening to censor cable TV), the position has long been a holding tank for low-performing miscreants. Early on his tenure, Holder told Congress that federal agents wouldn’t raid and arrest proprietors of medical marijuana dispensaries that were complying

(Corrects number of hours taped in fourth paragraph.) Probably most people would agree that the people paid by the U.S. government to regulate Wall Street have had their difficulties. Most people would probably also agree on two reasons those difficulties seem only to be growing: an ever-more complex financial system that regulators must have explained to them by the financiers who create it, and the ever-more common practice among regulators of leaving their government jobs for much higher paying jobs at the very banks they were once meant to regulate. Wall Street´s regulators are people who are paid by Wall Street

   

 

  


 
Eric Holder´s business legacy:

“That area of his record is terrible,” says Robert Weissman, president of the progressive nonprofit, Public Citizen. Weissman is criticizing U.S. attorney general Eric Holder for his “utter failure to prosecute any [major] institution or person for the events that led to the financial crisis and all the ensuing social devastation.” Holder announced yesterday that he’ll step down from the post he’s held since 2009 as soon as the president appoints a successor, The popular vein of criticism being voiced by Weissman, and encapsulated in the phrase “too big to jail,” is the albatross that threatens to weigh down Holder’s legacy in the

There has not been a liberal coalition in this country broad and deep enough to enact sweeping leftist legislation since 1937, when Congress passed the Fair Labor Standards Act, the last of the New Deal reforms.

Congress should pass an authorization

At the United Nations on Wednesday, President Obama offered a powerful case for war against the Islamic State. “This group has terrorized all who they come across in Iraq and Syria,” he said. “There can be no reasoning — no negotiation — with this brand of evil. The only language understood by killers like this is the language of force.” On moral grounds, Mr. Obama’s argument is irrefutable. Unfortunately, his legal justification for U.S. air attacks in Iraq and Syria is weaker. The administration submitted a letter to the United Nations saying that it was entitled to act under the

The resignation of Eric Holder as attorney general is an unavoidably symbolic moment for an administration that itself appears to be stumbling through the final years of a troubled second term. Holder truly personifies an administration of unrivaled ambitions colliding with inescapable realities. He proved a fierce friend to President Obama, and that loyalty might have worked to the disadvantage of both men. After a series of major court defeats and public controversies, Obama (like President Bush before him) might have been served better by an attorney general who was more detached from him and more attached to the constitutional principles

President Obama said the shooting death of a black teen by a white police officer last month in Ferguson, Missouri, exposed the racial divide in the American justice system that “stains the heart of black children.” Speaking at the annual Congressional Black Caucus Foundation dinner in Washington on Saturday night, Mr. Obama said the death of Michael Brown “awakened our nation” to a reality that black citizens already understood. “In too many communities around the country, a gulf of mistrust exists between local residents and law enforcement,” Mr. Obama said. “Too many young men of color feel targeted by law

Washington - The parents of Michael Brown said Saturday in an interview with The Associated Press they were unmoved by the apology of the Ferguson, Missouri, police chief weeks after their unarmed 18-year-old son was killed by a police officer. Brown´s mother, Lesley McSpadden, called for Chief Tom Jackson to be fired, and his father, Michael Brown Sr., said rather than an apology, they would rather see Officer Darren Wilson arrested for the death of their son on Aug. 9. "An apology would be when Darren Wilson has handcuffs, processed and charged with murder," Brown Sr. said. The young man, who was black,

The Justice Department is expected to ban profiling by federal law enforcement. Counter-terror investigators would be barred from undercover operations in mosques or other religious institutions unless there is reason to believe criminal activity is going on there, under a new policy expected within weeks. The new rules would ban profiling based on religion, ethnicity or sexual orientation and includes no exemption for national security investigations, the Los Angeles Times reports. The announcement of the new policy to crack down on law enforcement profiling was delayed for several months because of White House

A Canadian member of the loathed Islamic State claimed the group is plotting an attack on New York City — and will one day fly its flag over the White House. Days before Iraqi Prime Minister Haider al-Abadi warned of terrorist plots on subways in New York City and Paris, a video emerged showing an ISIS shill named Farah Shirdon widening the scope of the threat. “God willing, we will make some attacks in New York soon,” he said in a video interview with Vice News last week. “A lot of brothers are mobilizing there right now.” He vowed that U.S.-based fighters are “mobilizing for a brilliant attack.”

Political pollsters have a tough job. They have to create formulas to determine if the person they are interviewing is likely to vote, and it is within this calculation that their reputations are made. Typically, those who are likely to vote in an off-year election are pretty set. They are the people who always vote in elections — with some motivated by specific issues. In a wave election, the number of those motivated by specific issues escalates, changing the electoral landscape as the candidates who are beneficiaries of this increased participation sweep to victory. The 2014 election is rapidly looking like something new
