What a time to be a conservative. Not only did we elect Donald Trump president, but we now get to hear the lamentations of their women as Princess Hillary makes her excuse-laden book tour. The interviews by dowager journalists who over-identified with her are a hoot. The lame excuses diminish her. The firebrand feminist is reduced to Damsel in Distress, denied her birthright by the deplorable American people. Check that. The irredeemably deplorable American people. Small wonder that her favorables are falling. It is not that she is a loser. It is that she is a sore loser. But the media seems
Comments: Does she have any idea how delicious this is to so many of us?
Hillary, diminished? Ah, yes. You could say that. Never a towering figure of rectitude, a brilliant beacon of leadership, or a worthy and insightful human being, she, like Al Gore, is deep in a very muddy hole, and for some peculiar reason, just can´t quit digging. The more she indulges in her endless self-pitying self-pleasuring, the smaller, stranger, sillier, more dishonest delusional, and venial, weaker in every way, she looks. Voodoo dolls is it, now? Maybe that should be her next money-grubbing venture. Hillary´s souvenir overstuffed voodoo dolls. Pins are extra. Signed dolls lots extra. Want a cardboard box with that? Ka-Ching. Poor Hillary. She no doubt has many enemies, but of them, she, herself, is her very worst.
The Democratic Party might not be the problem. However the very far left have accelerated the fall of Party by electing an array of views that skirt around the UnitedvStates Constitution only trying to bring the country to its knees. Abortion, border control, racial relations, all have solutions but never with a leader that will not bend but only stand on their soapbox to divide and disgrace any view but their own.
Curiouser and curiouser… An interesting development amid the various swampy happenings both domestically and internationally. With Robert Mueller focusing on foreign interest lobbying efforts within Washington DC; and amid Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman confronting corruption within the financing of foreign political influence; Podesta CEO Kimberley Fritts announces she is leaving to form her own firm.Considering that Mrs. Fritts previously announced her intention of remaining at the Podesta group and rebranding the lobbying firm, sans Tony Podesta, questions arise as to what might have made Fritts change her mind. (Via Politico) Kimberley Fritts, the longtime chief executive of the Podesta Group,
First Lady Melania Trump visited the Mutianyu section of the Great Wall in China as the sun was starting to settle low on the horizon. It was windy and slightly cold as our First Lady signed a guest registry and was presented with a scroll from atop one of the seven wonders of the ancient world. A state official said that Yukun Zhang, chairman, Mutianyu Great Wall Travel Service Co., Ltd, received the first lady after the ride up on the cable car. After signing the guest registry Mrs. Trump made her way up a short flight of stairs to
President Donald Trump delivered an defiant opening speech at the 2017 Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEC) CEO Summit in Da Nag, Vietnam earlier today. Speaking to an Asia-Pacific audience consisting of over 400 top corporate CEO’s, international leaders, and key heads-of-state from the region, President Trump outlined his expectation for trade relationships with ALL member states. Trump began by walking through a list of the primary regional nations, praising each for their history and culture and then highlighting their modern success and advancement in economics and trade. Then President Trump shifted to economics and national security; delivering a strong and deliberate message
In May, President Trump made his first foreign trip. The first stop was Saudi Arabia. He brought along Secretary of State Rex Tillerson and Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross. They sword-danced with the Saudis. No one in the press seemed curious enough to find out why they sword danced. Six months later, we know why. The sword dance celebrated an agreement between the Trump administration and the House of Saud. President Trump then flew directly to Israel, breaking a protocol that no longer mattered. Yes, the Saudis still don´t recognize the state of Israel but the military the Saudis are setting up is a clone
President Trump´s biggest changes in Washington are at its oldest institution, the Department of State, which is located in the Foggy Bottom section of D.C. Trump is thinning the ranks of career diplomats, which their union president protested. From Ambassador Barbara Stephenson, the president of the American Foreign Service Association union: There is no denying that our leadership ranks are being depleted at a dizzying speed, due in part to the decision to slash promotion numbers by more than half. The Foreign Service officer corps at State has lost 60 percent of its Career Ambassadors since January. (Snip) But American frustration with
In 1989 the communist regime of China delivered one of the more infamous authoritarian displays of brutality in modern history. The Tiananmen Square protests of 1989, commonly known in mainland China as the June Fourth Incident, were student-led demonstrations in Beijing, the capital of the People’s Republic of China. In response the communist regime crushed the student uprising and hundreds were massacred.Almost thirty years later, it’s now 2017, and in the exact same place, on the exact same streets, the Chinese government played the U.S. national anthem while broadcasting -for the first time ever- to their own country, the welcoming
[WHITE HOUSE] PRESIDENT TRUMP: Assembly Speaker Chung, distinguished members of this Assembly, ladies and gentlemen: Thank you for the extraordinary privilege to speak in this great chamber and to address your people on behalf of the people of the United States of America. In our short time in your country, Melania and I have been awed by its ancient and modern wonders, and we are deeply moved by the warmth of your welcome. Last night, President and Mrs. Moon showed us incredible hospitality in a beautiful reception at the Blue House. We had productive discussions on increasing military cooperation and improving the
What is going on here? Donna Brazile spent a bit of time in her just-released book, Hacks detailing her concerns over the still-unsolved murder of DNC operative, Seth Rich. Rumors remain about the cause of Mr. Rich’s death with more than a few speculating he was the one responsible for sharing details of damning DNC emails with outside sources – details that greatly hampered the Hillary Clinton campaign. Did that act lead to his death and is there a connection to Hillary Clinton? Ms. Brazile sure seems to be hinting as such. Check it out… (Image)
Women, minorities, and other so-called marginalized groups have multiple champions. All well and good, even inevitable, I suppose. Picture right now in your mind’s eye: Hillary Clinton, Ellen DeGeneres, Elton John, Black Lives Matter. Hey, even the redone Caitlyn Jenner. Yet no one has spoken for the average American male in a very long time, it seems. These are the John Wayne or even Jimmy Stewart kind of guys—men who made America great, who are now long gone, left on the roadside, passed over, or passed away. It’s taboo even to mention them. If you did, you’d be called misogynistic, sexist, racist, homophobic,
President Trump and some of his allies on the far right have found a new culprit in Tuesday’s deadly terrorist attack in Manhattan: Senate Minority Leader Charles E. Schumer (D-N.Y.). As details emerged about the incident, prominent right-wing commentators and news outlets seized on a report from New York’s ABC affiliate that the alleged attacker, Sayfullo Saipov, had come to the United States from Uzbekistan under a State Department program known as the Diversity Visa Lottery.(Snip)Schumer did play a key role in drawing up the program in 1990. His proposals eventually became part of a broader immigration package that was passed
The German army has war-gamed the break up of the European Union in study of security crises that could face the country by 2040. Military planners in Berlin played out a scenario in which a growing number of countries follow Britain in leaving the EU, resulting in an "increasingly disorderly" world, Der Spiegel reported. "The EU enlargement has been largely abandoned, more states have left the bloc," strategists wrote in a study cited by the magazine."The increasingly disorderly, sometimes chaotic and conflictual world has dramatically changed the security policy environment for Germany and Europe." Der Speigel said the study could inform German armaments
Jim Simons, the founder of Renaissance Technologies, urged Robert Mercer to step down from his role as co-chief executive officer over concerns that his backing of Breitbart News was hurting morale at the world’s most profitable hedge fund, according to people familiar with the matter. In recent months, Mercer’s personal political projects dragged the secretive firm into the national spotlight. Mercer and his daughter, Rebekah, are prominent Republican donors and patrons of Stephen Bannon, chairman of Breitbart News, a website that backs the nationalist movement that helped elect President Donald Trump. Simons, who is a major donor to Democratic causes, negotiated Mercer’s
UPDATE 2:14 p.m.: Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) called on the party´s nominee for Senate in Alabama, Roy Moore, to withdraw from the race if a new report that he pursued teenage girls in his 30´s is true. "If these allegations are true, he must step aside." The Washington Post published the story about Moore on Thursday. ORIGINAL STORY: Republican senators reacted with alarm to a published report that Roy Moore, the Republican Senate nominee in Alabama, initiated a sexual encounter with a 14-year-old girl when Moore was 32, the Washington Post reported on Thursday. “It’s a nasty story,
I argued that conservatives should disassociate themselves from Roy Moore and denounce him weeks before credible allegations surfaced today that he preyed on teenage girls, one only 14 years old. So I’m pretty locked-in. I suppose it’s good that some Republicans see this as a bridge too far. But it’s a little hard for me to focus on that upside when you think about what they considered to be acceptable until now. Still, it’s good to know where the line is. You can set up shady charities for profit. You can call for religious tests and champion theocracy. You can Link repaired
A day before Donald Trump arrived in Beijing for crucial talks, China arrested 3 prominent African-American athletes. It would be awful if this became a racial issue today back home. A new element could be introduced into the deal-making at the heart of presidential mission to East Asia, and these youths have a following. They all have head shots from UCLA (snip) If the Chinese wish to use this incident for bargaining leverage (and why wouldn’t they?), they could exchange lenient treatment of the matter, as an “administration violation,” which sounds non-criminal. But either way, the 3 men can be
When California lawmakers return to the Capitol in January, the state chapter of the NAACP will be seeking their support for a campaign to remove “The Star-Spangled Banner” as the national anthem. The organization last week began circulating among legislative offices two resolutions that passed at its state conference in October: one urging Congress to rescind “one of the most racist, pro-slavery, anti-black songs in the American lexicon” as the national anthem, and another in support of former San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick, who launched a protest movement against police brutality among professional athletes by kneeling when “The Star-Spangled
Maybe it was that whole “low energy” thing. In surprisingly undiplomatic terms for elder statesmen, George W. Bush and his father, George H.W. Bush, bash President Trump in a soon-to-be released book. While both of the former presidents vowed when they left office not to speak ill of their successors — a pledge they’ve kept for the most part — there’s just something about Donald J. Trump that they can’t stand. (Snip) “You can either exploit the anger, incite it, or you can come up with ideas to deal with it.” Jeb offered real solutions, “but it didn’t fit with
Former interim DNC Chairwoman Donna Brazile said the Democratic party was "leeched of its vitality" by former President Barack Obama and others in the months leading up to the 2016 presidential campaign. (Snip) Obama "used the party to provide for political expenses like gifts to donors, and political travel," Brazile wrote, adding that the politician also used DNC funds for "his pollster and focus groups" later into his second term although he couldn´t run for president again. "This was not working to strengthen the party. He left it in debt. Hillary bailed it out so that she could control it, and Debbie went
The Washington Post is imminently planning to run a piece targeting Judge Roy Moore, claiming that he engaged in inappropriate conduct with four teenage girls thirty-four years ago. The alleged incidents, all of which Moore strongly denies, allegedly took place between 1977 and 1982. Breitbart News obtained details of the forthcoming Post story from the newspaper’s letter detailing the allegations sent to Moore’s campaign for comment. “These allegations are completely false and are a desperate political attack by the National Democrat Party and the Washington Post on this campaign,” Moore said in a statement obtained by Breitbart News. Separately, Moore’s
Hillary Clinton is in secret negotiations with Christopher Steele, the author of the infamous Russian dossier, to purchase a second report that allegedly contains salacious new charges against President Trump, according to several sources with personal knowledge of the transaction. The talks with Steele, a former British spy, are being carried out by Hillary´s former campaign aides, who do not hide their bitterness over the shocking loss of the White House to Donald Trump, these sources say. ´Hillary´s people have been secretly in touch with Steele and are close to making a deal with him on opposition research that he claims has
Following a year of layoffs, ESPN is expected to have another round after Thanksgiving. Over 100 staffers could lose their jobs in the layoffs, including positions on the television side, producers, executives and those in digital and technology, according to Sports Illustrated. SportsCenter is expected to be "hit hard" and some on-air talent could be out of a job. ESPN declined to comment to Sports Illustrated about the looming job cuts. Layoffs have been occurring at ESPN multiple times throughout the last two years. In October 2015, the company laid off over 300 employees and this past April over 100 Headline resplit
The Country Music Association Awards got very political very quickly when the hosts opened Wednesday night´s show by mocking President Donald Trump Country music superstars Brad Paisley and Carrie Underwood kicked off the 51s annual awards show by wearing eclipse sunglasses, poking fun at the commander-in-chief - who at one point looked at August´s solar eclipse without wearing eye protection. The pair also sang an opening song with the lyrics ´Maybe next time he´ll think before he tweets´, a play on Underwood´s hit song ´Before He Cheats´.
The results are in and New Jersey and Virginia have elected new Democratic governors. In New Jersey, former Goldman Sachs executive and Ambassador to Germany Phil Murphy expectedly defeated Lt. Governor Kim Guadagno by an estimated margin of as many as 14 points, and in Virginia, Lieutenant Governor Ralph Northam defeated former Republican National Committee Chairman Ed Gillespie by an estimated 7-to-8-point margin. Surely, New Jersey’s swing to a Democratic governor is a product of an unpopular outgoing Republican governor, Chris Christie, and President Trump’s unpopularity in the state as well. Further, outgoing Republican Governor Christie has the dubious status as New Jersey’s
WASHINGTON—Illinois Democratic Rep. Danny Davis says he sees ‘nothing wrong’ with the California ACLU’s effort to ban the Star Spangled Banner as the country’s national anthem. “Well, you know, one of the things about the Constitution that our forefathers wrote, and basically, there were none of our foremothers that were there. There were none of our fore-sisters there. There are changes that can take place and there is room to change,” he told TheDC Thursday. Alice Huffman, president of the California chapter of the NAACP, declared the anthem to be “racist” and that it “doesn’t represent our community. It’s anti-black
