Hillary Clinton’s political career is probably over, but just because she lost the presidential election to Donald Trump doesn’t mean she wasn’t prepared to win. Axios reporter Mike Allen has revealed Hillary’s list of prospective nominees for important cabinet posts in her administration, and it includes a number of interesting choices. John Podesta, her campaign chairman who accidentally exposed his entire email account to Russian hackers, was listed as the frontrunner to be Hillary Clinton’s secretary of state. Vice President Joe Biden was reportedly also being considered for the position. Facebook executive and Lean In author Sheryl Sandberg was in
Comments: Looking over that list sure does make you breathe a sigh of relief. Can you imagine if Podesta was Secretary of State? He would have been under the direct control of his BFF (like all of them) George Soros.
Podesta, isn´t that rich. What was that pick about, to see who can have the least secure guardianship of our most classified secrets? Was this supposed to show Hillary has a sense of humor? Leave it at Zanies.
Now there´s a clown posse for you. They probably thought Schumer would be the head clown in the Senate, and Pelosi in the House. But they all got to jump into the barrel or hop the wall when the bull got loose.
Yikes. Neera Tanden for Secretary of Health and Human Services? I turn of the TV whenever that yakking robot shows up. There was a Podesta email on Wikileaks where Tanden spoke rather derisively of Hillary, implying Hillary was clueless and out-of-touch (or drunk).
Biker Veterans for Trump We dodged a nuclear holocaust! America is becoming great again! Let´s match Brexit 17% economic increase! Trump will do it--Killary is all talk! Sharpton, Obama, Jarrett, Soros, and Killary all belong in confinement! Lock ´em up!
Maybe I don´t get out much, but I can´t ever recall an article like this on the loser´s Cabinet of Curiosities before. I grew up in the Deep South but all this romancin´ The Lost Cause is enough to make an Ashley Wilkes barf.
Not just a bullet Lucianne, more like a Gatling gun full of them. All aimed at the American people. One of the biggest monsters in politics as SecState? After finding that out earlier today, I could not read anymore. My stomach and BP could not stand it.
#6 Google John Podesta and brother Tony/Russia you will find out he made a lot of money investing in Russia which could have been illegal. But no one in the media touched this story. Donald Trump touched on it vaguely once.
A makeshift “black people”-only food cart caused plenty of indigestion Thursday in the Bronx, outraging onlookers who called the stunt racist. A man and a woman set up the cart around 9 a.m. outside Bronx Supreme Court, advertising their free doughnuts and juice on Styrofoam plates. Their three handmade signs read: “Free Food For Black People.” Passersby weren’t amused. “Are you kidding me? If I did something like that, it would be considered hate,” railed one woman, who was repeatedly denied any grub when she confronted the duo. A young man running the cart also refused to serve a Post reporter. And the woman
For the most part, those protesting President Donald Trump on Inauguration Day did so peacefully—but a couple hundred “anti-fascist” protesters marred events in the nation’s capital when they began smashing storefronts and bus stops, lighting fires, and hurling objects at police. At the time, 230 people were arrested for rioting, which forced law enforcement to use flash-bang grenades and pepper spray. And now, at least 214 people have been indicted on felony rioting charges, CNN reports. On Tuesday, a grand jury in DC charged five individuals. This was in addition to the 209 other defendants who´ve been indicted on rioting charges earlier
An average of 400 “criminal illegal immigrants” are being released every 10 days by the newly elected sheriff in Arizona’s most populous county, federal law enforcement sources tell Judicial Watch, many of them violent offenders. It’s part of Maricopa County Sheriff Paul Penzone’s new policy to protect illegal aliens, even those who have committed serious state crimes, from deportation. Under a longtime partnership between the county and the feds, the Phoenix field office of Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) was notified when “aliens unlawfully present with additional Arizona charges” were released from the Maricopa County Jail, which is one of
Former House Speaker John Boehner predicted on Thursday that a full repeal and replace of Obamacare is “not going to happen.” Boehner, who resigned in 2015 amid unrest among conservatives, said at an Orlando health care conference that the idea that a repeal-and-replace plan would blitz through Congress is just “happy talk.” Instead, he said changes to former President Barack Obama’s signature legislative achievement would likely be relatively modest. “[Congressional Republicans are] going to fix Obamacare – I shouldn’t call it repeal-and-replace, because it’s not going to happen,” he said. Boehner’s comments come as Republican lawmakers across the country are facing angry constituents
President Trump has confirmed that retired Lt. General H.R. McMaster is his new choice to be his National Security Adviser. There have been indications that the Republican establishment has been trying to co-opt Trump and keep him from effecting the sweeping reform that he has promised, and this appointment could indicate that at least for the moment, these forces have gained the upper hand. (Snip) No transcript or video is publicly available, but there was a large crowd, and multiple witnesses. In his address, McMaster said flatly: “The Islamic State is not Islamic.”
A students for Justice in Palestine (SJP) activist and pre-school teacher has been suspended from her job because of her anti-Semitic comments on Twitter. University of Texas-Arlington (UTA) student Nancy Salem, who teaches young kids at The Children’s Courtyard in South Arlington was outed by Canary Mission, a campus watchdog group, along with dozens of others for racial hatred. EAGnews.org posted some of the offending tweets made by Salem, a staunch supporter of the Boycott, Divestment, and Sanctions movement: “@DictatorHitler: How many Jews died in the Holocaust? Not enough” “Have a safe trip Lulu. I love you baby girl! See
Robert Reich, a professor at UC Berkeley and former U.S. Secretary of Labor, has insinuated that President Donald Trump incited Monday’s riots in Sweden — echoing his unproven conspiracy theory just weeks ago that Breitbart News organized violent demonstrations at his university. “Trump’s lies have consequences,” Reich wrote Tuesday afternoon on Twitter. “48 hrs after his comments on Sweden, riots broke out in an immigrant community.” His statement refers to President Trump’s comments at a Florida rally this weekend, describing problems in the European country due to heavy migration from Muslim-majority nations: We’ve got to keep our country safe.

Longtime radio and cable news broadcaster Alan Colmes is dead at the age of 66. Fox News moments ago reported on Colmes’ death with a segment narrated by Sean Hannity, who paired with Colmes for years on the venerable talk show Hannity & Colmes. Hannity identified his old colleague as, “one of the nicest, kindest, and most generous people.” This news is breaking and we will update as we learn more.
It didn’t take long during tonight’s DNC leadership CNN debate for candidates to get a question about impeachment. Congressman Keith Ellison said, “Trump has done a number of things which legitimately raise the question of impeachment.” He pointed to Trump being in violation of the emoluments clause and said this is about protecting “the integrity of the presidency.” Jehmu Greene also weighed in and said that Democrats must be the last line of defense against Trump if he commits any impeachable offenses. Watch above, via CNN.
WOW! John McCain is leading a vicious campaign against the Russian government since the November election. In January McCain suggested the Russian “hacking” of the election was an “act of war.” But it wasn’t that long ago that Senator McCain requested campaign donations from Russian officials. Wikileaks released documents this week following the sudden death of Russian UN ambassador Vitaly Churkin. There are several documents on McCain’s request for donations from the Russians. In 2008 the Russian mission released a letter on a fundraising attempt from John McCain. According to Reddit users John McCain illegally asked for campaign donations from
The Trump administration Wednesday revoked federal guidelines issued by former President Barack Obama that allowed public school students to use restrooms and other facilities corresponding to their gender identity. A document submitted to the Supreme Court by the Solicitor General´s office said that the Obama-era directive issued this past May did not "undergo any formal public process" or explain how the directive was "consistent with the express language of Title IX," the federal law outlawing sex discrimination in education and activities. "Congress, state legislatures, and local governments are in a position to adopt appropriate policies or laws addressing this issue,"

Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., predicted Tuesday that many Republican lawmakers will break from President Trump by June if he continues to push forward with his agenda. Schumer told "The View" that while most Republicans have declined to publicly break with Trump during the first month of his presidency, many privately admit they have "real problems" with him. He also argued that some are sticking by him because of party loyalty and his nomination of Judge Neil Gorsuch to fill the late Antonin Scalia´s seat on the Supreme Court. "When you talk to Republicans quietly — in the cloakroom
Fox News announced the signing of Dr. Ezekiel Emanuel as a healthcare and policy analysis contributor on Tuesday. Along with Jonathan Gruber, Emanuel is best known for being one of the “architects” of the Affordable Care Act. He currently serves as chair of the Department of Medical Ethics and Health Policy at the University of Pennsylvania and is a Senior Fellow at the Center for American Progress. He will reportedly appear on both Fox News and Fox Business Network.
A group of global investors with $11 trillion in managed assets told Texas on Tuesday not to enact legislation restricting access to bathrooms for transgender people, saying it is discriminatory and bad for business. The "Texas Privacy Act," or Senate Bill 6, has been marked as a priority for Lieutenant Governor Dan Patrick, a Republican and conservative Christian who guides the legislative agenda in the Republican-controlled state Senate. He said the measure protected the privacy and safety of Texans. The bill on a flashpoint issue in the United States is similar to a law enacted last year in North Carolina
A Mexican man has apparently taken his own life just half an hour after being deported from the United States. Guadalupe Olivas Valencia, 45, jumped from a bridge at the border after he was deported for the third time. He was found unconscious next to a plastic bag with his belongings and died in hospital a short while later. His death came as the Trump administration issued new guidelines to widen the net for deporting illegal immigrants from the US. (Snip) Mr Olivas was a native of Sinaloa, one of Mexico's most violent states and the stronghold of the cartel formerly led by jailed drug lord Joaquin "El Chapo" Guzman.
(Video) MSNBC´s Mika Brzezinski criticized President Donald Trump on Wednesday for undermining the media´s message by creating his own facts, adding that the "job" of the media is to "control exactly what people think." Brzezinski made the comment on "Morning Joe" after co-host Joe Scarborough said that he agreed with a panelist´s view that Trump supporters are wondering why people are so upset over what the president is doing since he is implementing exactly what he campaigned on. "What Yamiche [Alcindor] said is what I hear from all the Trump supporters that I talk to, who were Trump voters and
Entire San Jose neighborhoods were submerged by water on Wednesday during the worst floods for 100 years. 50,000 people were told to flee their homes after evacuation warnings were issued in the early hours of the morning. Most were issued a flood warning but for 14,000 the order was mandatory. The flooding began when Coyote Creek, which runs through Silicone Valley from the San Francisco Bay, burst its banks on Tuesday night. It sent dirty water pouring in to the towns below it at frightening pace. On Wednesday, residents complained that the alert had not been sent out fast enough. Some
Astronomers have spotted a star system with planets that could support life just 39 light years away. Seven Earth-like planets have been discovered orbiting nearby dwarf star ´Trappist-1´, and all of them could have water at their surface, one of the key components of life. Three of the planets have such good conditions, that scientists say life may have already evolved on them. Researchers claim that they will know whether or not there is life on any of the planets within a decade, and said ´this is just the beginning.´ No other star system discovered before has been found to
AmeriCorps sounded like a good idea. Create a program where American youth could basically earn free college by working and helping their communities. On the surface -- and if you don´t understand the inherent issue with any government program -- it sounds like a great way to help people get their educations. The program -- which never reached the level its creator Bill Clinton envisioned -- now finds itself on the chopping block along with other left-wing darlings such as the National Endowment for the Arts and the National Endowment for the Humanities. College officials are freaking out: The Trump administration is circulating
Congresswoman Maxine Waters (D., Ca.) says the darndest things. Since President Trump won the election, Rep. Waters has not hesitated to be an outspoken critic of his administration. She refused to go to his inauguration, stated publicly that she doesn´t want to work with him, called him a dictator, and even called for his impeachment less than a month into his presidency. Here are some of the unusual things Waters has said since the election: (Snip) 3. When she called Trump and his aides a bunch of ‘s*umbags.´ "This is a bunch of s*umbags. That´s what they are." 4. Waters
In San Francisco, an Indian software engineer on a work permit canceled plans to bid on a $900,000 home. In Washington, a Brazilian nonprofit executive passed on a fixer-upper near her office. And, in Mesa, Arizona, a 24-year-old son of undocumented Mexican immigrants won the trust of a bank -- a green light for a mortgage -- but now fears deportation. President Donald Trump’s immigration policies threaten to crack a foundation of the American economy: the residential real estate market. Legal and otherwise, immigrants, long a pillar of growth in homebuying, are no longer feeling the warm welcome and optimism
A THR and National Research Group survey reveals how little the average moviegoing citizen knows about this year´s Oscars. Yes, you read that headline correctly — come hell or high water, six out of 10 Americans could not name a single best picture nominee, according to a new poll commissioned by The Hollywood Reporter that canvassed moviegoers on both sides of the political fence. But, hidden in the figures, there is some good news for the Academy: Seven in 10 respondents say they’ll be watching the Oscars anyway. (Video) THR’s poll — conducted by the National Research Group, which in
The journalists at CBS This Morning on Wednesday openly fretted that Donald Trump’s new immigration orders “could create a climate of fear” for illegal “citizens.” (Yes, co-host Gayle King used the word “citizen.”) Talking to USA Today bureau chief Susan Page, Anthony Mason worried, “This could create a climate of fear in the immigrant community, if it hasn´t already.” Page agreed, “I think it has.” She justified, “Remember that two-thirds of illegal immigrants have been here at least a decade. So, they´re really part of the fabric of our life. Although, admittedly, they´re here illegally.” King insisted, “But they´ve been
