Two seemingly contradictory recent Gallup Poll findings sum up what it means to be a woman in the United States who dares to go where only men have gone before: Americans love to think of talented, ambitious women who have overcome obstacles — but the reality of a woman assuming a position of power, particularly over men? That´s not welcome. According to a Gallup finding in early December, Hillary Clinton´s favorability rating has never been lower, having fallen to 36%, more than a year after she lost the presidency to a man who had no discernible skills for the job. But in another Gallup Poll, just a few weeks
Comments: The Crack News Network continues to cast their pearls before that swine. What alternate Universe must they live in to not realize that PIAPS should be imprisoned as a flight risk while the Justice department sorts out all Herself´s odious criminal activities?
Oh, America has been trying their best to quit her. But she is America´s crazy ex-girlfriend, constantly showing up uninvited to parties and workplaces and sending dead flowers to assorted people when they don´t pay her any attention!! The Looney heifer needs a straightjacket and a padded room, NOT any more media fawning and butt kissing!!!
I haven´t had any problem forgetting about Hillary Clinton. Yeah, I´d like her to spend the rest of her life behind bars, but I guess I need to let go of that and let the Guy upstairs deal with that, because that´s not at my pay grade.
I neither like nor admire her. But since it´s a new year I´ll try to say something positive. She is one of the few women in power who has never accused a man of sexually harassing her. Including her husband.
A really disingenuous article. Yeah, she topped the silly most admired poll, but with a mere 9% of the vote, which goes to show she really isn´t admired all that much. The lengths Hillary-worshippers will go to ...
Mr. Isaac, your analysis skipped over some important facts about Lady Lucifer. She may go to prison overthe Uranium One deal. She sold access to her office, for Clinton Foundation contributions/shakedowns. She violated national security with her homebrew server. She allowed her paramour, Huma Abedin, to forward emails to Huma´s pervert husband´s computer. And as the full story of her dealings during the 2016 election unfolds, she may get busted for campaign violations. Then there is the matter of Chelsea´s 10 million dollar wedding, paid for, according to Hillary´´s staffer, by the Clinton Foundation. And that would be a felony.
I have to say, Mr. Isaac, that I pity your students at Davidson College, if this column represents your best attempt at journalism.
and she now gets 9% of the tally to Michelle Obama´s 7.)
BTW, another name pops up on the list of admired women, for the first time last year and this at 1%: Nikki Haley. I think someday she´ll be our first female president. I look forward to Isaac Bailey´s commentary.
What ´discernable skills´ did Shrillary have for the job? She was a disaster as Senator of NY. Upstate they are still waiting for her promised jobs. She certainly showed she was totally incapable of handling Benghazi. She was unable to handle ´devices´. The Russians, the Chinese, Isis, they all could read her unprotected emails. She did not even know how to clean them, ´with a cloth´??? But she did know who to call and who to blackmail for all her dirty work and how to destroy it!
Most of American desperately wants to quit Hillary Clinton. We had an election that proved it.
The last election proved that most polls are done and paid for by people who wish to see a predetermined result. Polls can be skewed by simple tricks such as over sampling a Zip Code that is weighted heavily in a particular demographic that will give you the result you want. Look at a election map. What do you see compared with the results of polls? It is just that easy.
I understand that liberals live in a mental lock box which requires that they must step carefully and stay within the thin closely defined liberal line regarding all things political, however it is still astonishing how ignorant a person would have to be to not have it occur to them that responsible citizens might have sound reasons for not voting for Hillary Clinton for any political office, reasons having nothing to do with her sex.
These are name ID polls only.Hillary has almost universal name ID.Secondly,the left simply don´t have any powerhouse women that people can rally around. As soon as a woman says she´s pro-aborton,pro climate change,they lose half the country.
Losing to a man with no discernible skills? Because he is a businessman? I guess Issac would include him with those other business men with no discernible skills such as George Washington and Thomas Jefferson.
Americans can travel to North Korea, if they wish -- but it may just be a death wish, the U.S. State Department cautioned. The State Department last week issued a stark warning to people setting out for the Hermit Kingdom, cautioning that anyone heading to the dangerous dictatorship should prepare for the possibility of not returning. “The U.S. government is unable to provide emergency services to U.S. citizens in North Korea as it does not have diplomatic or consular relations with North Korea,” the State Department published Wednesday on its website. Those who wish to travel to North Korea must be approved for a
The “Gang of Six” amnesty for millions of illegal aliens shielded from deportation by the President Obama-created Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program should be rolled “straight into the trash can,” Sen. Tom Cotton (R-AR) says. On Wednesday, a group of six pro-amnesty Senators will roll out their expansive immigration amnesty plan that would not only give a pathway to U.S. citizenship beginning with 3.5 million DACA and DACA-eligible illegal aliens but also give amnesty to the parents of amnesty beneficiaries. Cotton — whose popular legal immigration-cutting RAISE Act was endorsed by President
Tokyo - Japanese public broadcaster NHK says its erroneous alert of a North Korean missile fired at Japan was sent by a staff member who meant to file a different news flash. NHK denied any mechanical flaw and said Wednesday it is studying preventive measures. The erroneous news flash Tuesday said North Korea appeared to have fired a missile at Japan and that the government was warning people to take shelter. NHK retracted the mistake within minutes and apologized on air and on other formats. NHK isn't sure how many of its 300,000 social media followers saw the alert or notification and it's unknown if anyone followed the
Participants in a 20-nation summit on the North Korean nuclear threat have called for continued sanctions on the country, in an effort to pressure the regime to give up its rapidly advancing nuclear programme. US Secretary of State Rex Tillerson, who participated in the one-day meeting in Vancouver, Canada, said the event sent a simple message: "We will not accept a nuclear-armed North Korea." The sentiment was echoed by Japanese Foreign Minister Taro Kono, who urged the international community not to ease up on North Korea despite its recent cooperation with the South. "It is not the time to ease pressure or to reward
Between September 11, 2001 and December 31, 2016, 549 people were convicted of international terror offenses in United States federal court. Of those convicted terrorists, 254 were foreign-born non-citizens accounting for 73% of the convictions, according to a senior administration official who provided the data for reporters during a background briefing Tuesday. The high percentage of foreign-born non-citizens convicted of terror activities in the United States “highlights the importance of reforming the immigration system,” the administration official said, including the “importance of ending the practices of chain
A longtime Hollywood stuntman, Joel Kramer, was accused of sexual misconduct by three women over the weekend, including one who said he assaulted her when she was just 12. That accusation came from the actress Eliza Dushku, now 37, who said on Saturday in a Facebook post that Mr. Kramer abused her during filming of “True Lies,” the 1994 summer blockbuster. (Snip) In a statement provided to Deadline, Sue Booth-Forbes, who said she was Ms. Dushku’s legal guardian on the set, said she had reported Mr. Kramer’s behavior to an authority figure. “I was met with blank stares and had the sense that I wasn’t telling that
Big changes are coming for Capitol Hill’s two most influential foreign policy bodies — even if the Republicans retain their House and Senate majorities during the midterm elections later this year. Sen. Bob Corker of Tennessee and Rep. Ed Royce of California, the GOP chairmen of the Senate Foreign Relations and House Foreign Affairs committees, respectively, are both leaving office when their terms are up at the end of 2018. (Snip) “At a moment when American foreign policy is in flux because of the recent change in White House administrations, losing these two senior chairman who’ve demonstrated a capacity to get
Washington - The Trump administration said Tuesday that it will rush to the U.S. Supreme Court within a few days by skipping over a federal appeals court, hoping for quick action in the legal battle over shutting down the DACA program. "It´s an extremely unusual request, one that is granted once in a blue moon," said Tom Goldstein, publisher of the SCOTUSBlog website. "It´s a signal by the Trump administration that they take this issue incredibly seriously and think the justices should, too." A federal judge ruled Jan. 9 that the government could not end the program on March 6, as President Donald Trump proposed to do.
(video) - Tucker Carlson said that in the wake of President Trump´s alleged comments about underdeveloped countries, our nation´s "elites" have "recoiled in rage." "A new consensus has formed... so get a pen: Every other country is great, especially the poor and disorganized ones," Carlson said of the left-wing and media response to comments about Haiti and Africa. (Tweet) Carlson said elites are instructing us to understand that immigrants from those nations are "uniformly more impressive than you are." "They fight more wars, pay more taxes, they start more companies than your kids ever will, so shut up with your doubts," he
On Sunday protesters clashed with police in Tunis. Some young men threw stones and police used tear gas, local reports said. The protests were staged in the run-up to the seventh anniversary of the ousting of President Zine El Abiding Ben Ali in 2011, an event that signaled the beginning to the Arab Spring. Most in the region are not looking back at those momentous events. Instead they are dealing with the aftereffects and many governments appear to hope that not discussing the Arab spring will mean the causes of the frustration that led to it will go away. In December 2010 Mohamed Bouazizi, a street vendor in Tunisia,
Washington - U.S. President Donald Trump on Monday thanked the ruler of Qatar for “action to counter terrorism and extremism in all forms,” the White House said in a statement that suggested a warming of ties between the two countries. In June, Trump had called on Qatar to stop funding groups that commit terrorism, saying the Gulf nation had historically done so “at a very high level.” Saudi Arabia, the United Arab Emirates and Bahrain, who along with Qatar are members of the Gulf Cooperation Council, plus non-GCC member Egypt cut off diplomatic, travel and trade ties with Qatar last year, accusing it of supporting militants and
If actions speak louder than words, President Trump’s actions Monday on Martin Luther King Jr. Day were restrained, amid persistent accusations of racism. In a sharp departure from his predecessors on the national day of service, Mr. Trump spent the bulk of the holiday at his golf club in West Palm Beach, Florida. President George W. Bush typically marked the holiday with a public event such as attending a service honoring King at a Baptist church in Landover, Maryland, or greeting volunteers at a public high school in Washington. President Barack Obama normally celebrated the King holiday by taking his daughters to serve food
NBC plans to televise any players who refuse to stand for “The Star-Spangled Banner” at the Super Bowl, but there may be nothing to show. It appears that NFL players are no longer taking a knee during the national anthem, namely because none of the teams with still-active protesters has qualified for the postseason. By the end of the regular season, only five teams featured at least one player regularly sitting or kneeling on the sidelines for the anthem: the Seattle Seahawks, the San Francisco 49ers, the Miami Dolphins, the New York Giants and the Oakland Raiders. None of those franchises made the
Senator Cory Booker (D-NJ), no doubt gearing up to run for president in 2020, became unhinged during Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen’s testimony before the Senate Judiciary Committee Tuesday.Booker glared crazily at Nielsen as he smashed his fists in protest of President Trump’s alleged “S***hole,” comments made during a meeting with Democrats on DACA. (Photo/Tweet/Video) Daily Caller published a partial transcript of Booker’s tirade: “I hurt,” Booker cried. “When Dick Durbin called me I had tears of rage when I heard about this experience in this meeting. “For you not to feel that hurt and that pain and to dismiss
On Monday’s broadcast of CBS’ “Late Show,” Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) stated that President Trump can begin to prove he’s not racist or bigoted by supporting the bipartisan immigration compromise. Schumer said Trump’s comments “over and over and over again can be described as nothing but racist and obnoxious. He says he’s not a racist. Well, … I have a challenge for Donald Trump. Okay, actions speak louder than words, if you want to begin, just begin that long road back to proving you’re not a racist, you’re not bigoted, support the bipartisan compromise that three Republicans and
Mitt Romney took a swipe at Donald Trump on Monday, condemning the crude comments the president was said to have made about Haiti and African countries -- calling them “inconsistent (with) America’s history and antithetical to American values” with a reference to Martin Luther King, Jr. The poverty of an aspiring immigrant’s nation of origin is as irrelevant as their race,” Romney tweeted. “The sentiment attributed to POTUS is inconsistent w/America’s history and antithetical to American values. May our memory of Dr. King buoy our hope for unity, greatness, & ‘charity for all.’”
This Martin Luther King, Jr. Day, the NAACP wants man-made global warming to be seen as a civil rights issue, arguing King’s vision of a society free of racial injustice can’t be achieved without addressing warming. “We see climate change as a civil rights issue,” Jacqueline Patterson, head of the NAACP’s environmental and climate justice program, said in an online radio spot for the Yale Center for Environmental Connection. Environmental activists have been increasingly framing global warming as a matter of “environmental justice,” since “minority and low-income populations are disproportionately affected by global warming,” Patterson told Yale’s online radio Climate
Ever since Donald Trump entered the political arena, his intelligence has been viciously attacked and his supporters have been labeled as moronic deplorables. In a recent Trump tweet, the president responded to the most recent attack by saying he is a stable genius. The mainstream media never bothered checking evidence of Obama´s intelligence before one historian declared him "the smartest man with the highest IQ ever to be elected to the presidency", even though his academic records were sealed. What these attacks do prove is who the real brains are and who are the dummies: Alan Dershowitz may be for real
Rep. Pramila Jayapal (D-Wash.) on Monday announced she plans to boycott President Trump´s State of the Union address to Congress at the end of the month, joining a handful of other Democratic lawmakers who are skipping the annual event. "I´m here on Martin Luther King Jr. Day to say I will not be going to the State of the Union," Jayapal said in a video posted on social media. "I think it is absolutely unacceptable to see the racism and the hatred coming out the White House in a way in which this president is fueling the flames of divisiveness across
From his perch in the Ohio governor’s mansion, Republican John Kasich is keeping a keen eye on President Trump’s every move and showing a willingness — some say eagerness — to hurl rotten tomatoes toward the leader of his party when he gets upset with the act.He has become a go-to anti-Trump source for the media and often doesn’t even wait for the press to call. Instead, he leaps in to pile on after presidential missteps.While insisting he wants Mr. Trump to succeed, Mr. Kasich has pointedly refused to rule out mounting a primary challenge against the president in 2020.
TRENTON, N.J. — Days before his inauguration as New Jersey’s 56th governor, Phil Murphy had Hollywood on his mind. The 60-year old Democrat had just read a headline about reshoots on “All the Money in the World,” which had been done in a hurry to remove disgraced actor Kevin Spacey from the movie. (Snip) Murphy is ready to end his obscurity. On Tuesday, when he is sworn in, New Jersey will become one of just eight states where Democrats run every branch of government. If Murphy has his way, New Jersey will become a proving ground for every liberal policy
Florida Rep. Frederica Wilson added her name to a growing list of Democratic lawmakers who say they are fed up with President Trump and will boycott his State of the Union address at the end of the month. (snip) “For the first time since I began serving in the U.S. House of Representatives, I will not be attending the president’s State of the Union address,” Wilson said in a statement late Sunday. “I have no doubts that instead of delivering a message of inclusivity and an agenda that benefits all Americans, President Trump’s address will be full of innuendo, empty
Former Gov. Jeb Bush (R-Fla.) on Monday threw his support behind former GOP presidential nominee Mitt Romney, who is reportedly weighing a Senate run in Utah. Mitt would make a phenomenal addition to the U.S. Senate. I hope he runs. https://t.co/3Vcg6txQmN — Jeb Bush (@JebBush) January 15, 2018 Bush´s endorsement on Twitter comes shortly after Romney criticized President Trump for reportedly describing African nations, Haiti and El Salvador as "shithole countries" during a meeting with lawmakers on immigration reform last week.
The worker who sent a false missile alert to Hawaiian residents on Saturday has reportedly been reassigned. The civil defence employee has been moved to another role, but not fired, according to multiple media reports. In a press conference on Saturday, the head of Hawaii´s Emergency Management Agency, Vern Miyagi, said the worker "feels terrible." "This guy feels bad, right. He´s not doing this on purpose — it was a mistake on his part and he feels terrible about it," Miyagi said. The worker had been completing a shift change at the time of the alert and, according to the Washington Post, was using
