Before Hillary Clinton puts more miles on her comeback tour, Democrats should let her know she’s done enough damage and it’s time to pack it in. That won’t stop her, since even after losing to Donald Trump she fancies herself some misunderstood martyr, but it might slow her down a bit. While they crawl out of the wilderness that both Clinton and President Obama left them in, any moments Democrats spend amusing their failed 2016 nominee as she tries to find a way back to some sort of relevance is more than wasted energy -- it’s self-sabotage. Last week Clinton sat in
The below quote FTA is just so disgusting in so many ways. America, where have you gone?
´´With Sen. Bernie Sanders’ newfound stature in the Democratic Party, despite confirming this week that he actually is not a Democrat, Clinton must be careful not to appear as if she is still competing with the 75-year-old socialist. He is currently, according to polling, the most popular politician in the country.´´
I caught that, too, #4. If the communist old dirt bag Sanders is the most popular politician in the country, what does that tell you about how people feel about all politicians?
I do not know why PT is not seeking prosecution of Clinton. Perhaps he feels we already have enough division in the body politic and need no more- better just to move on (pardon the use of that cruddy term). But, certainly, Clinton´s "Others", like Podesta. Mills, et al need some trimming up by AG Sessions. Too distracting?
So, instead, they are going after Julian Assange? I don´t get it. The public almost certainly are looking for some blood in the arena. But, not just anyone´s blood will do. We want the true blue blood in that raked over sand.
Hillary Clintoon is a breathtakingly incompetent person and is completely responsible for her campaign failure. She had the dem machine, including grudgingly, BO, the media, the intelligence community, and even foreign governments working to get her elected and she still failed. She was simply a horrible candidate and a horrible person. The only one she is a "champion" for is her own ego and greed.
THAT is why she is seeking to be resurrected once again, to rebuild her own ego and to justify getting those big speaking fees and donations once again. She doesn´t care about her party, the Country, or the people in it.
No. We want her to continue to be a cancer on dem. Think about it. If she runs again in 2020 it will throw the dems into a spin. They will need a strong candidate against Trump. Which means she will do whatever is needed to destroy dem. The corruption & criminality will be back giving Trump the opportunity to crush her & dems for super majorities in Congress. Run you B!
As white supremacists go, Joey Gibson makes for a lousy one. For starters, he’s half Japanese. “I don’t feel like I’m Caucasian at all,” he says. Not to be a stickler for the rules, but this kind of talk could get you sent to Master Race remedial school. And it gets worse. The founder of Patriot Prayer—a Vancouver, Wash.-based operation that sponsors rallies and marches promoting freedom and First Amendment rights along with all-purpose unity—also spews hippie-dippie rhetoric like “moderates have to come together” and “love and peace [are] the only way to heal this country.” Joey tends to sound less
You could say America has had a summer of discontent. No one is happy: Obamacare limps on. Extremist groups have grown violent. Thousands languish in addiction to opioid drugs. A hurricane ravages Texas and now Louisiana. Americans could use some good news. In his Springfield, Mo., speech Wednesday, President Trump re-upped his promise to pursue comprehensive tax reform, which, if he can get it done, would be very good news for workers, businesses, and families. Although Trump has signed 53 pieces of legislation and appointed a Supreme Court justice, he has yet to deliver on any of his big-ticket legislative items: healthcare,
Any fair assessment of our President is that he is flawed as a person. His sense of self much exceeds the norm. Some of his insults famously transcend those we associate with the meme “Politics Ain’t Beanbag.” On discrete occasions, he has disappointed staunch supporters by punctuating certain powerfully valid viewpoints with “facts” that are so demonstrably wrong that they approach the coveted Gold Standard for Public Falsehood established by the dual-gender political tag-team of Clintons and exceeded only by Barack Obama. (See also: “Shovel-ready jobs”; “If you like your [ ], you can keep your [ ]”; “More young
Urging Congress to pass tax legislation at a time when Washington has no draft bill, few details, and no apparent urgency proved a tough sell for President Trump on Wednesday. With images of life-and-death dramas after Hurricane Harvey dominating the airwaves before Labor Day weekend, the president returned to campaign-like techniques to frame his tax priorities this fall. As expected, he decided his policy speech in Springfield, Mo., would not include much policy. What the president attempted instead, reading from teleprompters, was to weaponize the concept of cutting taxes while appearing in a state he won last year by 19 points. Trump
Will a returning Congress be able to deliver some much-needed tax relief to the American people? Seems simple enough, but so is Obamacare repeal, and lawmakers have (so far) managed to bungle that. One way to avoid doing the same thing when it comes to taxes is to take a simple procedural step: choose the appropriate budget baseline. Sounds wonky, I know, but before your eyes glaze over, consider how this can make -- or break -- future tax cuts. When conservatives push for tax cuts, we’re often told they will “cost too much.” Opponents predict humongous deficits if they reduce how
The President has been quick to criticize congressional Republicans for failing to repeal Obamacare. But Trump has also been guilty of dragging his feet — and with far less justification. Whereas any repeal legislation requires the support of a congressional majority, the President has the authority to take unilateral action that will ensure Obamacare’s demise. He can halt illegal subsidies to insurers, order his Secretary of Health & Human Services (HHS) to dismantle the law’s regulatory foundation, and eliminate Congress’s illegal exemption from Obamacare. Trump can do all of these things today, yet has done nothing but issue empty threats.
Obamacare was sold to a skeptical public based on three promises: It would bend the cost curve downward, provide access to care for most of the uninsured, and improve quality of the care we all receive. As many of us predicted, and every honest observer now admits, it has failed to deliver on any of these promises (Snip) So, how can Obamacare’s remaining advocates still defend it? With increasing desperation. This week, the only “success” they have been able to cite is that it hasn’t completely collapsed. This headline from the New Yorker was typical: “Obamacare Is Officially Not Collapsing.”
Just last month, Democrats were talking about how they needed to rebrand their party around a positive message. They wanted to move beyond simple anti-Trumpism and identity politics, and craft an economic appeal to the white working-class voters who deserted them in 2016. Now here we are with Democrats going all in to refight the Civil War. Well done. A glance at the electoral map shows how foolish this is. Donald Trump triumphed in 2016 by increasing Republican margins in a swath of northern counties stretching from western Pennsylvania across the Great Lakes, netting him Pennsylvania, Ohio, Michigan, Wisconsin and
Since the violence in Charlottesville 10 days ago, when white supremacists left one young woman dead and 19 others injured, the Southern Poverty Law Center has hit the jackpot. The Alabama-based nonprofit is set to receive millions of dollars in donations from some of the nation’s deepest of pockets. Apple pledged $1 million. JP Morgan Chase & Co.: half a million. George and Amal Clooney even got in on the action, promising to donate another $1 million. Like every other decent American, I was outraged that the president of the United States equivocated in condemning neo-Nazi activity in this country. Nazism
The tax-reform zombie walks again. Or so it appears. Just when you thought it was killed off by President Trump´s verbal gaffes, the never-ending Russia investigation, the failure of ObamaCare repeal, antifa and neo-Nazis, and by the GOP´s own ineptitude, as they say in the horror-movie biz: It´s ALIVE! And, yes, that´s a good thing. Americans had been left to believe that both tax cuts and deeper tax reform were both dead, thanks to the growing political strife over our nation´s monuments and bitter divisions in Congress — and that´s just among the Republicans. But the folks at Politico recently noted that
Much of the country has demanded the elimination of references to, and images of, people of the past -- from Christopher Columbus to Robert E. Lee -- who do not meet our evolving standards of probity. In some cases, such damnation may be understandable if done calmly and peacefully -- and democratically, by a majority vote of elected representatives. Few probably wish to see a statue in a public park honoring Confederate general Nathan Bedford Forrest, one of the founding members of the Ku Klux Klan, or Supreme Court Justice Roger B. Taney, who wrote the majority opinion in the racist Dred
Immediately after Donald Trump´s Afghanistan speech, Lindsey Graham -- not always the president´s biggest fan -- praised the address and noted Trump was smart to leave the actual direction of day-to-day conduct of warfare to those trained to do it: the generals. He contrasted Donald with Obama, whom Graham called a "bad general." True enough, but it´s worse. Obama wasn´t just a bad general or even an atrocious one. Consciously and/or unconsciously, he was on the other side. Sound exaggerated? Then ask yourself this -- why would a man as intelligent as Barack Obama 1. telegraph his intentions and pull-out date to
Oh, Melania. In the words of the late, great Lou Reed, you “couldn’t hit it sideways.” First the now–First Lady (perhaps unwittingly) plagiarizes Michelle Obama in her convention speech, then she takes as her platform a crusade against bullying—when she is married to unquestionably the greatest cyber bully in political history—and now this! This morning, Mrs. Trump boarded Air Force One wearing a pair of towering pointy-toed snakeskin heels better suited to a shopping afternoon on Madison Avenue or a girls’ luncheon at La Grenouille. While the nation is riveted by images of thousands of Texans wading with their
Kenneth Storey says he made a “heartbreaking” mistake in describing the destruction from Hurricane Harvey as “instant karma” for Texans who voted Republican last year. Storey, since fired from his post as a visiting assistant professor at the University of Tampa, said his ill-fated post to Twitter on Sunday was intended as a critique of the GOP’s resistance to funding climate-change research — but that the message was “extremely poorly worded.” The Winter Park resident’s tweet quickly ignited online outrage, amid reports of the catastrophic destruction in Houston. “It’s heartbreaking to me to know that these people are struggling … and I did
You won´t find Aaron Rodgers kneeling during the national anthem this season, but in a recent interview with ESPN´s Mina Kimes, the Green Bay Packers offensive captain revealed he has no issue with players who do choose to protest. That includes fellow quarterback Colin Kaepernick, who´s still waiting for a job offer less than two weeks before the start of the 2017 season. (Snip) "I think he should be on a roster right now," Rodgers said. "I think because of his protests, he´s not." While Rodgers will continue to stand for "The Star Spangled Banner," he plans on supporting his
Arizona Sen. John McCain made clear in an op-ed Thursday that he believes Congress does not fall secondary to President Donald Trump — instead calling on Congress to return to regular order to accomplish the things Trump can´t. "We must respect his authority and constitutional responsibilities," McCain wrote in a Washington Post op-ed Thursday night. "We must, where we can, cooperate with him. But we are not his subordinates. We don’t answer to him. We answer to the American people." McCain made the plea to a Congress that faces continued gridlock as it returns from August recess next week, and wrote out
A Greek Life retreat at the University of Mississippi (Ole Miss) was promptly cancelled this weekend after a banana peel was found hanging in a tree. “To be clear, many members of our community were hurt, frightened, and upset by what occurred at IMPACT,” Interim Director of Fraternity and Sorority Life Alexa Lee Arndt remarked in an email between Greek leaders, according to The Daily Mississippian. “Because of the underlying reality many students of color endure on a daily basis, the conversation manifested into a larger conversation about race relations today at the University of Mississippi.”
Hillary Clinton is ready to talk about “what happened.” But if you want to hear her speak about it in person, you may have to spend some serious dough. Starting next month, the former Democratic presidential nominee embarks on a tour across the United States and Canada to promote “What Happened,” her memoir about running against Donald Trump for president. And the price for access is a throwback to campaign fundraisers. For $2,375.95 (or $3,000 in Canadian dollars), Clinton fans in Toronto can obtain a “VIP platinum ticket” for her Sept. 28 talk. That ticket includes two front-row seats, a photo with
Kathy Griffin said in June that she was sorry. Now she´s retracting her tearful apology for that controversial photo shoot featuring her holding a fake severed head in the likeness of President Trump and treating the backlash as a joke. "I'm no longer sorry. The whole outrage was B.S. The whole thing got so blown out of proportion, and I lost everybody," she said Tuesday during an appearance on the Australian morning show "Sunrise," where she was promoting her "
Hillary Clinton will kick off a combination book signing and speaking tour on September 18 to promote her new book, What Happened (Simon & Schuster, Sept. 12), her account of the tumultuous 2016 presidential campaign. The book/speaking tour will kick off in Washington D.C. at the Warner Theater in an event sponsored by the independent bookstore, Politics & Prose. Tickets go on sale today at HillaryClintonBookTour.com. Clinton will also be available for book signings at a number of book stores around the country.More store are expected to be added at a later date.
In a letter from Senator Chuck Grassley to new FBI Director Christopher Wray (full pdf below) the senator outlines some disturbing information discovered in documents reviewed by the judicial committee. Chief among the issues was a discovery that fired FBI Director James Comey had already drafted a preliminary conclusion that Hillary Clinton was not going to be held responsible; the FBI Director’s position was created in April and May 2016 before sixteen key investigative witnesses, including Mrs. Clinton herself, were even interviewed. The revelations within the documents provides even more evidence that FBI Director James Comey was running a political investigation
Glenn Beck‘s TheBlaze is saying farewell to 20 percent of its employees. And Beck may cry. “What happened?” he asked in a highly emotional piece that he posted to his website and to Medium that makes it sound like someone is literally ripping out his spleen. “My heart is heavy today.” “Today, we said goodbye to just over 20 percent of the combined workforce of Mercury Radio Arts and TheBlaze (with most of the changes happening at TheBlaze),” he wrote. “We are losing a lot of talented and committed colleagues, who are some of the best human beings I know?—?some
House Speaker Paul Ryan condemned violent leftist Antifa protesters Wednesday a day after House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi condemned the group. “Speaker Ryan believes, as is obvious, these individuals are left-wing thugs, and those who are committing violence need to be arrested and prosecuted. Antifa is a scourge on our country,” Ryan’s spokeswoman AshLee Strong said in a statement provided exclusively to The Daily Caller. Speaker Ryan has been criticized by many conservatives for what was viewed as a weak response to the violent activists. President Donald Trump blamed “many sides” for the violence surrounding a white nationalist rally in Charlottesville, Va.,
There is a raging controversy within the University of Mississippi’s Greek Life community regarding race relations and bananas. A Greek Life leader accidentally sparked mass hysteria after he placed a banana peel on a tree in the woods -- because he could not find a trash can. The Daily Mississippian reports that three black students found the banana peel -- and were apparently triggered by what they saw. "To be clear, many members of our community were hurt, frightened, and upset," the interim director of fraternity and sorority life wrote in a letter obtained by the newspaper. The president of one sorority told
