The country is shocked, shocked that the DNC colluded with the Hillary campaign to anoint her as their nominee. In her 2015 caper, Clinton made a backroom deal with the DNC. In 2008, Barack Obama used outright election fraud and thuggery, the tried and true Chicago methods. to steal the nomination directly from the voters. When he got far enough, the DNC pressured Hillary’s pledged superdelegates to violate their voters’ wishes and award Obama an unearned victory. Obama’s illegal shenanigans in the 2008 Democrat primaries were far worse than Clinton’s – and will never be widely reported. It’s an odd experience

I remember in 2008 thinking that Hillary had it all wrapped up and the nomination was a lock and then, seemingly out of nowhere, comes Barack Obama and Hillary was suddenly an also ran. It looked fishy then and lo and behold, it was. Imagine my shocked face.
And this is why one should get government at all levels OUT of the primary/nomination process. Open the ballots for an "open primary", require petitions with reasonable numbers/distribution of signatures for ballot inclusion, remove party affiliation from the ballot, place names in random order, and the top two get a run-off if no one reaches the magic 50% plus one for election to the office. Best of all, this ballot reform costs virtually nothing to implement.
The left has only themselves to blame for Hillary´s first loss. In their heretofore successful attempt to lock up the black vote, they provided an impenetrable shield to protect them from nearly any crime - short of those that were caught on camera showing the perp in the commission thereof. OJ Simpson comes to mind- despite the solid facts, in his heinous crime. The New Black Panthers (even with the photos) and the literally hundreds of trespasses of Mac Daddy Long Legs since his early days in Chicago politics. It´s going to take a LONG time to reverse this , ask BLM or Colin Kapernic.
These are interesting stories, but lets not lose sight of the RNC. They foisted their boy McCain and their boy Romney on us and pushed all others to the side. After all, McCain and Romney were company men who knew where their orders were coming from. Then the voters had the absolute audacity to ignore their betters and reject Heb and all the lesser establishment hacks. The RNC masters pulled out all the stops to give the nomination to ANYONE but Trump, then when he got the nomination anyway they tried to give the election to the Hildebeast. They are no different than the democrats, just not as good at it.
The article lacks facts. Here are some. Barack won the Iowa primary with Chicago residents who showed up at the caucuses. (Iowa only requires an affirmation by a caucus goer that they will be Iowa residents by the November general election.) The media folks knew about John Edwards´s mistress, but kept it quiet. (Hillary came in third in Iowa, would have defeated Barack had the voters known about Edwards heartless behavior.) Hillary won Michigan and Florida primaries, but the DNC said they would not seat those delegations at the convention. Hillary probably won Texas, but the media said Barack won.
What is most comforting is knowing that whatever a Democrat does to get nominated, elected or while in office is never ever illegal! That´s the definition of a Banana Republic. We have become the United States of the Banana Republic. Nothing will be done to obama or hillary period. The most despicable, immoral, duplicitous bunch since the country was founded!
It was their "turn," doncha know! McPain didn´t want to win, he just wanted to run. He and Dole were perpetually running for the nomination, only so they could whine about losing to the LSM when someone else won. They reminded me of the bratty kid brother constantly knocking on the door of his sister´s slumber party and passing gas in retaliation when they wouldn´t let him join the fun!! Thats why neither knew what to do with the nomination once they actually had it!!
Our first step in responding to the fake news firestorm about what Trump did or didn´t say about some African countries is to figure out what Trump actually said. Two leakers say he used the term "s---holes" to describe Haiti and African countries. However, the only person corroborating that as this is being written is a Democrat. Given that Harry Reid gleefully admitted to lying about Mitt Romney not paying taxes, it´s not irrational to question that Democrat´s veracity. We also know that the leakers were willing to hurt the U.S. in order to gain a partisan political advantage. The leakers knew
Note to Fusion GPS: If you´re going to mouth off to the media and ignore the public record, you´d better be prepared to have your confidential documents subpoenaed. That´s the takeaway from last week´s ruling by Judge Richard J. Leon, district court judge from the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia, denying Fusion GPS´s request for a preliminary injunction against TD Bank. The injunction would have stopped the bank from complying with a subpoena for bank documents served by the House Intelligence Committee relating to the oppo research firm´s financial transactions with media and political clients from the period
Do I really have to explain President Trump’s strategy in reportedly using a vulgar expression to describe countries from which he believes the United States is taking far too many immigrants? (snip) Trump has forced everyone whom he outraged to repeat the words he wants to sink in with the public. The entire chattering class is now repeating that Haiti and some African countries and Salvador and other TPS abusers (changing a visa explicitly labeled as “temporary” into a permanent one) are bleepholes. The best of example comes from Trump’s sworn enemy Jim Acosta, who repeated the vulgarism in its
It´s a shocking claim made by a political insider: the Deep State is so opposed to draining the swamp that it will, if necessary, kill President Trump to prevent it. Roger Stone, a longtime Trump adviser and confidant, certainly knows his way around Washington, having worked as a senior campaign aide to Richard Nixon, Ronald Reagan, and Senator Bob Dole as well as having held many other political positions. This proximity to the Deep State is what makes his claim, expressed in a recent wide-ranging interview with The New American magazine´s Alex Newman, that much more eyebrow-raising. Stone outlined three plans
Not to worry, all you lovers of racial venom. YouTube still has plenty of material to satisfy even your most vitriolic yearnings. Want to use the world´s largest video platform to watch a Nobel Peace Prize-winner sing about killing white people? No, it´s not Barack Obama, but Nelson Mandela, leading a group of black people in a solemn vow to kill the whiteys. (snip) I do not know why Nelson Mandela and lots and lots of rappers preaching black-on-white racial violence have such a hard time getting kicked off YouTube. It´s easy. I´ve done it four times for way less. The first
A faint odor of desperation accompanies the latest revised plans for the monument to the greatness of Barrack Hussein Obama planned for Chicago. (snip) The failure of the citizenry to unite in praise and awe – there has been a firestorm of criticism -- has led Obama Foundation officials to go and hire as their lawyer Langdon Neal, a man described in 2016 by the Chicago Sun-Times as the “Chicago machine’s $99 million man,” “one of the city’s most politically connected lawyers,” who “has made a fortune helping City Hall and other governments condemn land for schools, police stations, McCormick
There was Oprah Winfrey at the Golden Globes, with her big glasses and 2020 visions of a presidential run, speaking to the greatest collection of sexual predators and their enablers pontificating about the rights of women in an industry where not long ago these same people, led by the pompous and condescending Meryl Streep, gave a standing ovation and an award to director Roman Polanski, child rapist. Oprah didn´t mention Polanski, or Harvey Weinstein, or Bill Clinton, or why she didn´t use the show that made her rich and famous to condemn predators such as these and the Hollywood culture that
The first community organizer to become president has managed to anger community groups so much with his planned personal monument, aka “presidential center,” that part of the plan was just scrapped. (snip) The original plan would have grabbed a treasured part of Chicago’s park system, the Midway (site of Chicago’s World’s Fair) for a two-story garage. The group Save the Midway sprang up to protect the historic public park land from a private developer (the Obama Foundation) appropriating the land for a private purpose (the Obama Center will not be part of the National Archives System) The embarrassment is palpable:
A common theme among progressives is that conservatives aren´t just wrong; they´re dumb. Reagan was dumb. G.W. Bush was dumb. Trump is dumb. "Knuckle-dragger," "mouth-breather," "stupid," and "uncultured" are typical pejoratives hurled at conservatives, who apparently tend to live in trailer parks, require dental care, handle snakes, and marry first cousins. (snip) Any argument that may give them even an inkling that they´re wrong can induce a bit of panic and is thus quickly rationalized away – often as the rambling of uneducated, un-evolved mouth-breathers who just don´t know any better. This phenomenon is exacerbated by two related factors. First, liberals
Like a couple of teenagers blissfully unaware of the watchful eye of their parents, FBI lovebirds Peter Strzok and Lisa Page got caught out for sending text messages showing just what Deep State was up to. Exposed by The Hill´s John Solomon, the messages show a self-satisfied pair egging each other on in leaks, snipes, bitchiness and insults, centered around their copious and potentially illegal contacts with the media. You have to read it to believe it. What it shows is that the whole thing pretty well amounts to a conspiracy against the incoming new administration of President Trump. The other
The left indeed has become a family. Unfortunately, it often resembles the Gotti crime family (hat tip: Larry Schweikart). Let´s face it: Republicans have their share of corruption, but what the left has become is not tinged with the normal shortcomings of humanity. It´s become criminal. Literally. Fully. And seriously. Let´s look at a few shades of leftist criminality. I don´t mean the common finger-pointing, where leftists claim that anything done by the center-right is "criminal." Like being for tax cuts. Being pro-life. Or against illegal immigration. Voting for Trump was criminal. The left thinks anyone to its right is criminal. But most sane
Attorney General Jeff Sessions, someone whom many of us consider asleep at the wheel concerning high level corruption at the FBI and DOJ, has woken up. No longer lurking in the weeds while Congressional committees and intrepid bloggers are peeling back the layers of the onion on deep state corruption, Sessions has moved from the weeds to weed itself. The AG this past week announced very simply that federal law regarding marijuana will be enforced. The left is apoplectic, even distracted a bit from the Trump-Russia collusion narrative and the recent tell-all book about President Trump, which is turning out to
Rep. Maxine Waters (D-Calif.) said Friday she will not attend President Trump’s first State of the Union address following his vulgar remarks aimed at Haiti, El Salvador and African nations. “Why would I take my time to go and sit and listen to a liar?” Waters said on MSNBC’s “All In with Chris Hayes.” “Someone who lies in the face of facts, someone who can change their tune day in and day out. What does he have to say that I would be interested in?" (Snip) Waters is the third Democratic lawmaker to announce they won’t attend Trump’s address, which
Michelle Obama and her eldest daughter Malia made a rare appearance in swimsuits as they are enjoying the sun in Miami.The mother and 19-year-old daughter were spotted walking off Miami Beach on Saturday surrounded by friends - including former Obama administration senior advisor Valerie Jarrett - and Secret Service personnel.Michelle, 53, looked sensational in a white bikini top matched with high-waisted white denim cut-off shorts as she trudged her way barefoot through the sand, holding her shoes in one hand.
A Civil Defense employee is set to be retrained after a shocking blunder on Saturday morning, when a mistaken alert warning of an inbound ballistic missile sent thousands fleeing for shelter. The false alarm was caused by a Hawaii Emergency Management Agency employee who ´pushed the wrong buttons´ during an internal drill timed to coincide with a shift handover at 8.07am. The all-clear phone alert was not sent until 38 minutes later. Incredibly, officials said the employee who made the mistake wasn´t aware of it until mobile phones in the command center began displaying the alert. ´This guy feels bad,
Chelsea Manning, the former US army soldier jailed for giving sensitive documents to WikiLeaks, has filed documents to run for the US Senate, the Washington Post reported. Ms Manning, a former intelligence expert previously known as Bradley Manning, was released from military prison in 2017 after Barack Obama waived her sentence. The 30-year-old would be taking on the incumbent Ben Cardin, a 74-year-old Democrat who has held the seat for more than a decade.Miss Manning was arrested in May 2010, while serving with the US army in Iraq, after she confessed to a computer hacker, Adrian Lamo, that she was
Steve Bannon, President Donald Trump´s former top strategist, alleged in journalist Michael Wolff´s tell-all book about the Trump White House that the president´s longtime attorney, Marc Kasowitz, "took care" of 100 women during the presidential campaign. "Look, Kasowitz has known [Trump] for twenty-five years. Kasowitz has gotten him out of all kinds of jams," Bannon reportedly said. "Kasowitz on the campaign — what did we have, a hundred women? Kasowitz took care of all of them."
Actress and yogurt salesman Jamie Lee Curtis knows exactly whom to blame for a false alarm that told Hawaiians an incoming ballistic missile was detected. It was all President Trump´s fault. Duh. Now, never mind that Trump was in Florida at the time. On the golf course. And forget that Hawaii´s Emergency Management Agency (EMA), run by the Hawaiian state government, apologized for setting off the false alarm when someone pushed the wrong button. In a Saturday afternoon post on Twitter, Curtis attacked Trump, writing "YOU DID THIS!" "This Hawaii missile scare is on YOU Mr. Trump. The real FEAR that
Lots of the news from sub-Saharan Africa is about war, famine, poverty or political upheaval. So it’s understandable if many Americans think most Africans who immigrate to the United States are poorly educated and desperate. Research tells another story. While many are refugees, large numbers are beneficiaries of the diversity-visa program aimed at boosting immigration from underrepresented nations. And on average, African immigrants are better educated than people born in the U.S. or the immigrant population as a whole.
Former President Bill Clinton said on Twitter Saturday that no Clinton Foundation funds were used to pay for his daughter´s wedding. After President Trump reportedly made crude remarks about Haiti and other less-developed countries, some on the right pointed to alleged mishandling of Haitian earthquake relief funds by the Clinton Foundation. On Twitter, President Clinton slammed the notion that any funds from the foundation, whether earmarked for Haiti or not, were used in association with his daughter Chelsea´s wedding to investment banker Marc Mezvinsky. No Clinton Foundation funds—dedicated to Haiti or otherwise—
Shortly after winning the election, President Trump told the New York Times that he probably would not make good on his promise to pursue a new criminal investigation into Hillary Clinton’s many shady deals, from her email server to her campaign apparatus to her and Bill’s massive and well-connected foundation. Trump declared that further investigation would be “very, very divisive for the country.” Unfortunately for Hillary – and possibly for Bill as well – some things are beyond the control of even the most powerful man in the world. Some conservative members of Congress may force the Justice Department to take
President Trump is employing techniques “popularized by Joseph Stalin” to demonize the press and his approach could do great harm to the nation in the long run, Sen. Jeff Flake said Sunday. In an appearance on ABC’s “This Week,” the retiring Arizona Republican and outspoken critic of the president said he’s deeply troubled by how Mr. Trump attacks the media. “You can talk about crowd size, and this is pretty innocuous if there’s a falsehood. But when you reflexively refer to the press as the ‘enemy of the people’ or ‘fake news,’ that has real damage,” Mr. Flake said. “It
Axios.com’s Mike Allen reports that House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) is now considered a lock for Speaker of the House in 2019, as her party is expected to sweep the 2018 midterm elections.If so, it would be one of the most remarkable comebacks in political history, after Pelosi led her party to an historic defeat in 2010 after serving as the first female Speaker for four years, then clung to power over a shrinking minority party for eight. Allen notes: “It would take a flip of 24 seats for Dems to take over. The average loss for the president’s
As TGP’s Kristinn Taylor reported, the government of Hawaii scared the populace with a text message to cellphone users alerting them to an incoming ballistic missile. The alert was reportedly repeated on television broadcasts. It turned out to be be bogus.Hawaii has been on edge this year over North Korea’s threats to nuke the United States that have been backed up by missile and nuclear bomb tests. (Photo) Hawaiian residents were panicking! It took 40 minutes to send out a second alert informing residents that it was a false alarm. WOW! (Tweet) Video from Hawaii shows young children being placed
