‘What Happened’? They Lost. With Her
Memoir, Hillary Clinton Joins a Haunted Club

New York Times, by Jon Meacham

Original Article

Posted By:StormCnter, 9/13/2017 8:16:10 AM

She had packed for victory. There had been a white suit for election night at the Javits Center beneath a glass ceiling; white was the color of the suffragists who, a century earlier, had at last won the franchise for women. But now, in the morning hours after Donald J. Trump’s White House upset, Hillary Clinton donned gray and purple for her concession to the country. The sartorial detail, which Clinton shares in her new memoir of the 2016 campaign, is a touch worthy of Plutarch, who observed that “a small thing … often makes a greater revelation of a

Comments:
Yes, it´s long, but I found it interesting. I´m always alert to unfair jabs at Richard Nixon and this contains a few. But, I read it anyway.

Starts with saying H is worthy of Plutarch...moves along swiftly to the idea that Nixon was horrible...and never gets around to the fact that H is absolutely creepy.

The Left is worried because they CHEATED and yet lost. If criminality fails them then they are truly lost.

Running the ´Con´ of Marxism requires a con artist....not an angry drunken shrew.

Hill´s greatest failing was her lack of respect for the arts and skills required to be a good con artist.

"Shut up and listen to me !!!" is not a good theme.

Obviously written by someone without even a passing acquaintance with Plutarch.

Look - the idiot really never campaigned. She was stupid and arrogant - only attending fundraisers until the eleventh hour, fifty ninth minute. That didn´t cut it.

Couple that with the rapist spouse she drags around, along with the Muslim brotherhood beard, Huma, and her sexual predatory spouse, Carlos Danger.

Add to that, her blatant history of being a stranger to the truth, the Benghazi massacre, Wikileaks, Seth Rich and all the seventh some odd strange deaths associated with she and her spouse.

Her radical thesis on Saul Alynski. Her refusal to list BokoHarem as a terrorist organization, her hatred of our military, our police, and anyone else who doesn´t walk in lockstep with her lunacy.

I am a proud ´deplorable.´ I am humbly thankful Hillary Clinton lost the Preidential election.

Last line:

“There isn’t anything I want to do. I wanted to be President. … I was ready. I’d really trained for the presidency. I know government. We had such great plans. We could have changed things. Damn it, I love this country. We could have done so much good.”

That was Humphrey. I have no doubt he loved the country. But Hillary despises us deplorables, which she shows in her clothing and other choices. White, for the suffragettes; faux-breaking glass ceiling at Javits. Blech. Go away.

Voices From the Storm

IT BEGAN as a blip on the radar, a low-pressure system plodding toward the Caribbean that caught the attention of forecasters at the National Hurricane Center, in Miami. On Thursday, August 17, they put out the first alerts. The system had become a tropical storm, with sustained winds of 35 miles per hour, and they gave it a name: Harvey. In Corpus Christi, Dale Nelson, the longtime chief meteorologist at the local NBC affiliate, KRIS-TV, took notice. “The tropics are heating up with newly formed Harvey,” he tweeted at 4:42 p.m. This wasn’t an especially worrisome development. Harvey was still far

   

 

  


 
What We Still Don´t Know
About Obama-Era ´Unmasking´
Bloomberg Opinion, by Eli Lake    Original Article
Posted By: StormCnter- 9/20/2017 3:30:02     Post Reply
Like most Washington scandals, the frenzy over a senior Obama adviser unmasking identities of Trump officials is larger and smaller than both sides imagine. President Donald Trump and his supporters say the former national security adviser, Susan Rice, engaged in domestic political spying when she asked for the identities of Trump transition officials caught up in surveillance of foreign targets. (In March, Trump accused his predecessor on Twitter of illegally wiretapping Trump Tower, and he has since said the Rice story confirmed his initial tweet. It didn´t.) Democrats and some Never Trump types say the fixation on Rice is a

Exactly 80 years after Amelia Earhart attempted her round-the-world flight, the solo journey has finally been completed in a single-engine aircraft for the first time, ending in Kestrel Airpark in San Antonio. “This was an amazing journey,” says Brian Lloyd, who flew 28,000 miles in Spirit, his plane, during his circumnavigation of the globe. “It required more of me than I ever imagined it could, but I also found in myself the reserves of patience and energy to keep going no matter what.”

It is tough to play hardball with your friends. Have you ever known someone who was exceptionally smart, very personable and highly accomplished, but was not particularly good at managing a large number of independently minded people? I have. His name is Paul Ryan. Speaker of the House Ryan has a job that he did not seek and said he did not want. Unlike most members of Congress, Mr. Ryan is very knowledgeable about most of the issues he deals with — he is a bit of policy wonk. He has a solid understanding of economics, and especially tax economics. Yet for

Just a few nights after Hurricane Harvey dumped more than fifty inches of rain on Harris County, I went to dinner at the home of some friends in my high and dry Houston neighborhood. In what I now see was a preview of coming attractions—the new normal—another guest had just moved his family into an apartment, because his house, in southwest Houston, took in at least a foot of water. He and his wife and twelve-year-old daughter were hanging in, but a lifetime of collected personal possessions was lost forever, and the cost of restoring what was left of their

WASHINGTON — President Trump has sided with a Democratic proposal to tie Hurricane Harvey funding with a three-month increase to the debt limit and funding the government through Dec. 15. Trump announced the deal with “Nancy” and Chuck” after huddling with the top Democratic leaders –House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi and Senate Minority Leader Charles Schumer – and top GOP leadership at the White House. “We essentially came to a deal, and I think the deal will be very good,” Trump said aboard Air Force One Wednesday. “We had a very, very cordial and professional meeting.” The Democrats touted getting the deal they

But it was originally portrayed by President Obama as a temporary measure . . . to give Congress a chance to legislate on the matter.

More than 70,000 people have signed a petition to rename a Texas highway after Houston Texans star J.J. Watt due to his efforts in raising millions for Hurricane Harvey victims. The petition, which was created on Change.org Friday, calls on Houston Mayor Sylvester Turner and Texas Gov. Greg Abbott to rename State Highway 99 the J.J. Watt Parkway.

The first time we left Port Aransas, my wife got choked up in the car as we waited for the ferry. “It’s just not enough time,” she said. We’d been there for two days, a quick weekend trip for her birthday. We stayed at 5 Dancing Dunes, a small complex about a third of a mile from the beach. We were the only people staying there that weekend that weren’t part of a church trip; at night, on the deck, the church folks got together to sing hymns.

While media outlets are suggesting climate change is to blame for exacerbating Hurricane Harvey´s conditions, a much worse hurricane hit Texas more than a century ago—before Americans drove to work. The media have been quick to blame climate change for the devastation, which as of this writing has resulted in 30 flood-related deaths. Politico magazine declared "Harvey Is What Climate Change Looks Like." The Washington Post attempted to blame President Donald Trump´s "climate skepticism" for more storms in the future. The Guardian said, "It´s a fact: climate change made Hurricane Harvey more deadly." NPR reported the storm´s size and impact "points to

Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) announced on Friday that he will vote against the latest GOP effort to repeal ObamaCare, potentially dooming the legislation. “I cannot in good conscience vote for the Graham-Cassidy proposal. I believe we could do better working together, Republicans and Democrats, and have not yet really tried," he said in a statement, referring to the legislation spearheaded by GOP Sens. Lindsey Graham (S.C) and Bill Cassidy (La.). McCain´s announcement leaves GOP leadership with no room for error.

The Senate’s top Democrat offered praise for Sen.

If NFL fans continue to turn away from football, the TV networks could lose as much as $200 million in earnings, according to a new report. After ratings for Week Two crashed, adding to the angst already felt by a poor showing in Week 1, industry insiders and analysts are sounding the alarm. A new report claims that CBS, ESPN, Fox and NBC could take a $200 million hit to their estimated $2.5 billion in NFL advertising earnings if fans continue to turn off the TV, the The Hollywood Reporter noted recently. The worries over earnings are not allayed by

Math and science teacher Chloe Bressack sent the request home in a letter to parents headlined "About Mx. Bressack." “... my pronouns are ´they, them, their´ instead of ´he, his, she, hers.´ I know it takes some practice for it to feel natural,” the letter reads, “but students catch on pretty quickly.” The letter also asks that students use “Mx.," (pronounced ´Mix´) when addressing the teacher rather than Mr. or Ms. The note alarmed some parents.

ABC has greenlit a new sitcom tentatively titled "Sanctuary Family" about an undocumented family living in the U.S. The network says the show will follow the pandemonium that unfolds when a married couple allows their undocumented nanny and her family to live with them. The guests put a strain on the marriage of the host family but they eventually learn that “the differences both families have aren’t as significant as their similarities,” according to the description provided by ABC. Undocumented immigrants are foreign-born people who don’t have a legal right to be or remain in the United States and the

Late-night host Jimmy Kimmel used his opening monologue Thursday to once again lambast supporters of the Graham-Cassidy health care bill -- and at one point called a Republican senator from Louisiana an "inbred." The host of ABC´s “Jimmy Kimmel Live” has emerged as a strong celebrity advocate for universal health care since his infant son had to undergo open-heart surgery in April. Kimmel made an announcement about his son during a memorable monologue at the time and has taken up the cause ever since. Part of his goal is for every child in the U.S. to have the same access to

The San Francisco 49ers Thursday night game against the Los Angeles Rams kicked off in front of a nearly empty stadium. Los Angeles Times reporter Lindsey Thiry tweeted a photo at the time of kickoff, which showed thousands of open seats. In fact, most sections in the photo have more empty seats than fans. (Tweet/Photo/Video) ESPN’s Darren Rovell reported that 63,500 tickets had been sold for the game, but of course, simply selling a ticket doesn’t mean the buyer will actually show up to the game. It’s hard to believe there are more than 30,000 people in the stadium, judging

A team of four current and former NFL players is lobbying commissioner Roger Goodell to engage the league in fighting for the cause of social justice, even asking him to formally designate November as activism awareness month. Current players Michael Bennett (Seattle Seahawks), Torrey Smith (Philadelphia Eagles), and Malcolm Jenkins (Philadelphia Eagles), along with former player Anquan Boldin, sent Goodell and another executive a 2,800-word memorandum in August requesting the league invest significant resources in the cause. The memo, available in full here, is specific and thoughtful, but its requests would almost certainly prove divisive among fans, many of whom are
