‘Shattered’ Charts Hillary Clinton’s
Course Into the Iceberg

New York Times, by Michiko Kakutani

Original Article

Posted By:MissMolly, 4/18/2017 4:46:03 AM

Donald J. Trump’s victory over Hillary Clinton in November came as a shock to the world. Polls, news reports and everything the Clinton campaign was hearing in the final days pointed to her becoming the first female president in American history. In their compelling new book, “Shattered,” the journalists Jonathan Allen and Amie Parnes write that Clinton’s loss suddenly made sense of all the reporting they had been doing for a year and a half — reporting that had turned up all sorts of “foreboding signs” that often seemed at odds, in real time, with indications that Clinton was the favorite

...who argued that the campaign needed to work harder to persuade undecided and ambivalent voters (like working-class whites and millennials), instead of focusing so insistently on turning out core supporters.

I assume that the Dead qualify as core supporters?

This is the bullet we dodged:

"the portrait of the Clinton campaign that emerges from these pages is that of a Titanic-like disaster: an epic fail made up of a series of perverse and often avoidable missteps by an out-of-touch candidate and her strife-ridden staff that turned “a winnable race” into “another iceberg-seeking campaign ship. It’s the story of a wildly dysfunctional and “spirit-crushing” campaign that embraced a flawed strategy (based on flawed data)"

And it was written by those favorably disposed.

My Spidey sense is tingling...

In the excerpts I´ve read to date there are facts of course but there is also a tone of deference and, frankly, it´s strongly implied that Hillary Clinton was an honest broker and her team were simply outplayed on the field.

In other words, the book suggests that campaign hubris and poor strategy are most responsible for the loss. Any port in a storm, obviously, but Clinton´s 25 year history of annoying and antagonizing America, her baseness of character, her willingness to do or say anything and her complete lack of personality save for the unpleasant bits actually caused the loss. Oh, and then there´s the small matter of fraudulent ´foundation´ and the email server.

There was a perfect storm of other factors, of course, that contributed to Clinton’s loss, including Russian meddling in the election to help elect Trump;

Of course. If not for the Russians forcing would be Hillary voters at Putin-Vulcan Mind Meld gunpoint to vote for Trump, she´d have won in a landslide and my tape measure would have measured my new window rough opening the real length instead of exactly one inch too short. Damn Russians.

It was the bottle hot sauce in her purse that finally did it for me and I just had to vote for Trump!/s

Good grief she was a dysfunctional candidate, barely alive like #3 posted, everything was fake about her, and her admission of hating of everyday Americans and lying about Benghazi were her good attributes. Terrible despicable old hag. The "Iceberg" was her own creation.

#3, I don´t think that was the moment, as it illicited a lot of sympathy for the old tottering hag. I think it was the deplorables comment. There was no way for her to spin that and I´m sure that a lot of fence-sitters were insulted and disgusted by it. It was also a big clue as to how she would govern, or as Jarrett said, "rule".

We didn´t dodge a bullet. We dodged a nuclear warhead.

FTA: "“Evolving the core message” remained a continuing struggle." because there wasn´t any, except that she "wasn´t Trump".
What is always given short shrift in all these postmortems is the astonishing actuality, i.e. Clinton outspent Trump by nearly 2:1. Money is the mother´s milk of politics. That Clinton could not win a national election with what was an enormous financial advantage, is absolutely shocking. And nowhere do these deferential (to Clinton) analyses ever bring up the fact that the same NBC that wouldn´t release the video of the Juanita Broddrick televised interview, somehow found and released the never meant for broadcast Billy Bush video for their pal HRC which her campaign was sure would knock Trump out for good.

The fact that postmortems of the HRC campaign are the topic of endless columns and discussions is just another sign of the bias of our media. They live in a liberal bubble, where no one exists except Democrats. Had Trump lost, he would be only a source of endless jokes, no postmortems, no analyses, no nothing.

Don´t blame the iceberg. The USS Sir Edmund came out of the shipyard with no rudder, no (moral) compass, no sextant, a beam that was too wide and the stem looking much like the stern. She drank the bottle of champagne instead of allowing it to be broken on her bow and she had no captain, no crew and no fuel. Her only purpose in life was collecting treasure and running over all who sailed in her path. Flying an American flag did nothing to hide the Jolly Roger and the Hammer and Sickle that flew on the same mast. Eventually, the iceberg floated her way and there was nothing she could do about it.

For the life of me I have never seen someone not on the campaign trail except in elite circles to raise money. It was quite obvious Hillary´s entire team thought it was in the bag. Staying shut in sleeping off vodka hangovers and living off of vitamin juice just to appear in a small hand picked crowd is not a winning strategy. The old hag really blew it with the ´basket of deplorables´ comment to gain a laugh from an LGBTQ crowd that´s what really sunk her. Who cares but we dodged a MOAB bomb on this one.

Sorry for the second post, but this is very rich soil that needs to be tilled.

FTA: "...even some of her close friends and advisers think that Clinton “bears the blame for her defeat,” arguing that her actions before the campaign (setting up a private email server, becoming entangled in the Clinton Foundation, giving speeches to Wall Street banks)..."

Notice only ´some´ of her close ´friends´ [ha!] think The Beast is to blame. As always with the First Grifters, follow the $$$$. There is a pattern of behavior: the e-mail server, the Clinton Foundation, and the screeches (oops, I meant ´speeches´) to Wall Street banker all mean the same thing. An insatiable greed for mo´ money, mo´ money. Forget honing a message, just make sure that check cleared from that donor.

The establishment really was smacked in the head by a 30-pound flounder! I was reading a copy of GQ from November 2016 while on the elliptical machine at the gym the other day. The editor´s letter (of course written weeks before the election) was a page-long screed against Trump and his inevitable loss. "Go and proudly punch Donald Trump in the face with your vote against him to ensure his huge loss" was the closer. Absolutely delicious in hindsight! I´m still smiling thinking about it.

I haven´t yet read this book although it´s on order. In a review of it in this morning´s WSJ, there is mention of an episode after her 2008 loss to Barack Obama. She was convinced she had been sabotaged by some staffers. So, she searched all the emails for evidence. This was not a technically clueless woman who had no idea what her server in the bathroom was doing in 2015. She was a paranoid shrew.

I just saved $17.43 on Amazon! Reading this review I came to the conclusion the book would be too much like reading all about the deep study of a lump of lard. I personal believe I know all there is interesting to know about Hillary Clintons failure as a Presidential candidate. And, interestingly, I know exactly why American voters rejected her: It was simply Hillary Rodham Clinton. She just might be the worst Presidential candidate in the history of American Politics. And that list of terrible candidates is amazing, because it includes candidates like Ross Perot, Mike Dukakis, Walt Mondale, Gerald Ford and General George B. McClellan!

#3, not just the toss into the Scooby van, but it was a cumulative avalanche of sick, old, tired, maybe Parkinsons, what-health-problems-is-she-hiding, Her staff and media (same thing) making Orwellian statements, "she is as healthy as can be". WaPo "Style Icon" Hillary (then Twitter users posted hilarious pix of her in her housecoat at fundraisers). All of that plus the decades of sheer brazenness of her money grubbing.

I pray for President Trump. He has an enormous job to do.

The Dems also failed to realize that Obama was an political anomaly. They couldn´t just graft Hillary onto the head of the party and expect the same result. Many of Obama´s policies antagonized the white working class, so they were up for grabs this time around.

Thank you Robby Mook for your false sense of confidence, doing just enough to keep Hillary from firing you. We loved it when you gave a tired, "Mmmm hmmm", to the question posed by Matt Lauer, ´ think it was, "Have you vetted all the Clinton Foundation contributors to make sure there is no conflict of interest with Hillary´s tenure as Secretary of State?". ha ha ha ha.

´ guess Hillary never bothered to look at Ted Kennedy´s Chappaquiddick moment and what it did to his political career, long term. Oh sure he got to remain a Senator, unfortunately for life but never again would he be a worthy contender for the presidency , after he abandoned that woman drowning in the water. That was just one scandal on Ted and Hillary has a virtual buffet of scandals to choose, select from. No way anyone can ditch all those scandals and become president. America knows how to correct a problem.

A raving lib on another forum surprised me just before 2016 election day and conceded Hillary lost the election when the video showed her stumbling around, whilst getting into the Scooby van, like a binge drinker on vacation.

Another re-writing of the truth.
Russia didn´t meddle in the election. She put her private emails out in the public for anybody to find.

She lost Wisconsin and Michigan in 2008 when Obama decimated the country, and they steadily lost votes in the 8 years since.

She was never going to win. The endless polling the campaign had the media pump up was never believed by any of us ´rubes´.

This is a re-write of 2008. Trying to convince voters that she learned her lessons, mistakes were made and now they know not to make them again. So, here we are, 2016, and yet another book on mistakes were made, and she will do better next time.

She´s a horribly corrupt woman from a horribly evil and corrupt family and she will never win. Ever.

And then there were the missing law firm records, losing the nomination to Obama, the stupid "reset" button with Russia, allowing the Muslim Brotherhood to gain power in Egypt, Benghazi. Everything she touches turns to into a disaster. And she is thinking of running again!

Her loss had much to do with being a third Obama term, and all the problems surrounding it. Beyond that, there wasn´t much of a strategy.

A third term for hardcore lefties, their causes, and certain identity groups. Many people said no thanks. Hillary and her handlers actually thought people were buying all that leftist garbage.

Consider how much more lopsided Hillary´s loss would have been if the media hadn´t propped her up.

Not sure anyone could have beaten Trump. People of both parties are sick of career politicians, and the lousy job they have been doing for decades (both parties). Trump came across as authentic, and definitely had different ideas. Hillary was manufactured and fake.

The Hillary Clintanic hit an Iceberg in the Sea of Trump, and went down faster than Bill Clinton´s trousers at a White House intern midnight pizza party. To me what really did it was simply the sound of her voice. I would rather listen to a class room full of 5th graders scratching their fingernails across a chalk board than listen to her give a screeching speech on any subject. Lastly the real issue was another simple one word reason she lost. Honesty.

It was Hillary´s stupid "vast right wing conspiracy" excuse that put me wise to her. Nothing she did or said since that moment did anything but strengthen my dislike and distrust of her.

How Melania Became
Way Cooler Than Ivanka
Daily Beast, by Keli Goff    Original Article
Posted By: MissMolly- 4/27/2017 4:58:39     Post Reply
It seems like only yesterday Melania Trump was being ridiculed for “borrowing” remarks from her predecessor, Michelle Obama, while Ivanka Trump was being touted as the calm, classy yin to her father’s never calm, not so classy yang. But what a difference 100 days can make. While Ivanka Trump and her business ventures have become yet another ethical distraction in an administration plagued by them, Melania Trump has emerged as…well, a surprisingly calm, classy counterbalance to her husband and those he surrounds himself with, including her stepdaughter. It wasn’t supposed to be this way. During the presidential campaign the commonly

"You know, I said we were going to build a wall and Mexico was gonna pay for it. But it turns out, the bad hombres heard about Trump, and they stopped coming. They gave up. So we don´t even need a wall. We just needed to let everybody know they´re not going to take advantage of us anymore. And believe me, they know it. And why would I make Mexico pay for a wall when they´re helping us out like they never did before? You wouldn´t believe the cooperation we´re getting now. The Mexicans have been tremendous!"

UN warned Trump that ObamaCare

The United Nations warned the Trump administration earlier this year that repealing ObamaCare without providing an adequate replacement would be a violation of multiple international laws, according to a new report. Though the Trump administration is likely to ignore the U.N. warning, The Washington Post reported the Office of the U.N. High Commission on Human Rights in Geneva sent an "urgent appeal" on Feb 2. The Post reported that the confidential, five-page memo cautioned that the repeal of the Affordable Care Act would put the U.S. “at odds with its international obligations.” The warning was sent to the State Department and reportedly said

Are you freaking kidding me? Thirteen-term Democratic congresswoman Maxine Waters, Beltway barnacle permanently affixed to USS Government, is now the fresh-faced “rock star” of the Democratic party. “Auntie Maxine” is stoking the resistance, inspiring Millennials, combating hate, crusading against corruption, and invoking the counterinsurgent cry to “stay woke!” I do not have enough guffaws to give. This new spokesmodel for civility and clean government has stoked division and exploited taxpayers for decades. Change agent? She has served on the Democratic National Committee since 1980 — when the Atari 2600 was cutting-edge, Kim Kardashian was a newborn, and Al Franken was

We call it Kultursmo, it being that collection of attitudes, ideas, tastes, and personages that are polluted by the politics of the left and that predominate on both coasts. And who are we? We are the freethinkers who are immune to the Kultursmog by virtue of our natural skepticism and reliance on empiricism, which is to say, reliance on evidence. Thus we understand and generally accept that Donald Trump won the 2016 presidential election. We also accept that Hillary Clinton, assisted by her hubby and their consultants, lost the election. In fact, she lost the election after outspending Donald two

The EMP Threat From North

Fifty-five years ago, the U.S. tested a nuclear weapon high above the atmosphere over the Pacific. At the time, my father -- a nuclear weapons engineer -- was listening on our ham radio. When the device exploded, we heard nothing in Albuquerque. But, in Honolulu, 1000 miles from the detonation, the sky turned red as streetlights and telephones went out. EMP (Electromagnetic Pulse) effects from the distant nuclear explosion had struck. Today we hear concern that cities might be destroyed by North Korean nuclear tipped missiles, but Starfish Prime should alert us to a more imminent danger: EMP. North Korea can launch

Former Fox News host Andrea Tantaros stepped up her fight with her ex-employer claiming in a new lawsuit that she was a victim of hacking, electronic surveillance and a social media harassment campaign that mirrors the plot of a "Homeland" episode. Fox News operatives broke into her personal computer, planted key-logging and other surveillance software on it and then used the information “to intimidate, terrorize and crush her career through an endless stream of lewd, offensive and career-damaging social media posts, blog entries and commentary,” Tantaros claims in the lawsuit. “The outlandish merges with reality in the world of Fox News,” she

Trump pulls back on border wall demands

WASHINGTON — President Donald Trump stepped back Monday from demanding a down payment for his border wall in must-past spending legislation, potentially removing a major obstacle to a bipartisan deal just days ahead of a government shutdown deadline. Trump told a gathering of around 20 conservative media reporters Monday evening that he would be willing to return to the wall funding issue in September, according to two people who were in the room. They spoke on condition of anonymity to discuss the get-together, which was not originally intended to be on the record. The border wall money is fiercely opposed by Democrats,

DALLAS – The woman seen sobbing in a viral video after an American Airlines flight attendant took away her stroller now has a lawyer — the same attorney representing a man dragged off a United Express flight earlier this month. The Chicago lawyer, Thomas Demetrio, says the American flight attendant was "out of control" and nearly hit one of the woman´s two young children with the stroller. An American Airlines spokesman said Monday that the company has been in contact with the woman and refunded her tickets and upgraded her to first class for the rest of her trip to Argentina.

Worried the term “female genital mutilation” might sharpen the divide between those who oppose brutally cutting away a little girl’s genitalia to deprive her of sexual pleasure and those who practice the “rite,” one New York Times editor instead refers to the ritual as “genital cutting.” “There’s a gulf between the Western (and some African) advocates who campaign against the practice and the people who follow the rite, and I felt the language used widened that chasm,” NYT science and health editor Celia Dugger explained Friday. She also said the widely used term (FGM) is “culturally loaded” in the explanation, which

NAIROBI, Kenya — Kuki Gallmann could feel the ring of danger tightening around her. Over the past few days, Mrs. Gallmann, one of Kenya’s most famous conservationists and the author of the best-selling book “I Dreamed of Africa,” sent me a flurry of increasingly distressed text messages. Heavily armed pastoralists had invaded her ranch in northern Kenya and were edging closer and closer to her house. “Pokot militia openly carrying firearms,” she wrote in one message. (The Pokot are an ethnic group in northern Kenya.) “Not just herders. Group of armed men without livestock. 13 firearm spotted.”

French Election Proves Politics

France’s first-round election results on Sunday were a welcome non-surprise: Right-wing nationalist and Putin pal Marine Le Pen did make the second round, but behind political novice but familiar center-left face Emmanuel Macron, whom she’ll face in a May runoff. Even better, their other competitors from France’s established center-left and center-right parties came out quickly to endorse Macron. The best news of the day, though, is that political observers of a liberal, non-nationalist bent can comfortably retain their basic understandings about how France, elections, and 21st-century democracy all work. They can also, at least temporarily, shelve some fundamental doubts about

SAN FRANCISCO — A federal judge in San Francisco has blocked a Trump administration order to withhold funding from communities that limit cooperation with U.S. immigration authorities. U.S. District Judge William Orrick issued the temporary ruling Tuesday in a lawsuit over the executive order targeting so-called sanctuary cities. The decision will stay in place while the lawsuit moves through court. The Republican president’s administration and two California governments that sued over the order disagreed about its scope. San Francisco and Santa Clara County argued that it threatened billions of dollars in federal funding. But an attorney for the Justice Department,

It was a message repeated several times at a Democrat news conference Tuesday afternoon: Republicans, agree with us on a spending bill, or we’ll blame you for shutting down the government. And it appears that Republicans, who control all three branches of government, are listening: “Now last night, we received a bit of good news -- not just for Democrats but for the country – that the president is easing off his demands for a border wall in the government funding bill,” Sen. Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.) told the news conference. “The money is better used elsewhere,” Schumer said. “If the

A group of executives who want to fight global warming has published a new report calling for countries to spend up to $600 billion a year over the next two decades to boost green energy deployment and energy efficiency equipment. [SNIP] To meet that goal ETC claims the world needs “investment in renewables and other low-carbon technologies some $6 trillion higher ($300 billion per year); while the largest required increases – of almost $9 trillion ($450 billion per year) – will be in more efficient energy saving equipment and buildings.” That’s a $15 trillion price tag to theoretically limit future

Although President Donald J. Trump promised to defund Planned Parenthood if elected president, and the GOP House and Senate often claim that they want to defund the group, there reportedly is no language in the continuing resolution to fund the government through next September to defund Planned Parenthood, a group that has performed approximately 81,567 abortions since Trump´s inauguration on Jan. 20. That´s about 877 abortions per day, 36 per hour, or 1 every two minutes. The continuing resolution, or CR, is a funding mechanism that -- absent a budget and the regular appropriations process -- wraps federal spending into

Dirty denim is the new black, selling for hundreds of dollars at pricy retailers like Nordstrom. Nordstrom is offering "heavily distressed," muddy jeans for $425 on its web site. Nordstrom says that the jeans "embody rugged, Americana workwear that´s seen some hard-working action with a crackled, caked-on muddy coating that shows you´re not afraid to get down and dirty." The mud has a shiny sheen to it, as if the jeans were dragged down a filthy hill and left in a wet ditch. The filthy fashion statement isn´t actually new -- the jeans have been for sale at Nordstrom as well as at Neiman Marcus and Saks Fifth Avenue for quite some time.

In the past week, vandals have repeatedly defaced property at the prestigious University of Texas-Austin, spray-painting a hammer and sickle symbol and words like “rapist,” “racist” and “kill frat boys” on at least four fraternity houses. Last Friday, the vandals published an anonymous manifesto on It’s Going Down, a website that describes itself as “a media platform for revolutionary anarchist, anti-fascist, and autonomous anti-capitalist and anti-colonial movements.” In it, the vandals urge students to join them in terrorizing fraternities.

My faith is a source of strength and comfort to me, as religious beliefs are to hundreds of millions of people around the world. So my decision to sever my ties with the Southern Baptist Convention, after six decades, was painful and difficult. It was, however, an unavoidable decision when the convention´s leaders, quoting a few carefully selected Bible verses and claiming that Eve was created second to Adam and was responsible for original sin, ordained that women must be "subservient" to
