Ruth Bader Ginsburg: ´Sexism´ and a
´macho atmosphere´doomed Hillary Clinton

Washington Examener, by Steven Nelson

Original Article

Posted By:konocti95, 2/12/2018 10:30:43 AM

Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg said Sunday "sexism" and a "macho atmosphere" helped doom Hillary Clinton´s 2016 presidential campaign. "I think it was difficult for Hillary Clinton to get by even the macho atmosphere prevailing during that campaign, and she was criticized in a way I think no man would have been criticized," Ginsburg said during a discussion at Columbia University. The liberal-leaning associate justice, who is 84 years old, shared a stage with CNN reporter Poppy Harlow and took a long pause before continuing. "I think anyone who watched that campaign unfold would answer it the same way I did: Yes,

Sorry Ruth. Hillary lost because of her terrible campaign, her horrible Senate and State Department record, and her involvement in collusion with the Russians.....Mick

Speaking of expiration dates, if Ginsburg (or her ideas) were a carton of milk, it would have from non-Newtonian fluid to a solid by now, if not decades ago.

Terrifying to see into the “mind” of our so called leaders.

It is difficult to believe that a supposedly legal mind can be so encrusted with pop culture superstition. And so credulous of it.

Emptiness.

Actually, RBG is partially right. For years, the traits associated with masculinity have been demonized, and the traits associated with feminimity have been celebrated. It was time for the pendulum to swing...a candidate with a masculine personage and masculine message had an innate advantage (in this election) over a candidate with a personage and message more aligned to feminine virtues (frailty, for one example). RGB blames it on sexism... there she is wrong. HRC was weak, devious, devoid of message, at a time when strength, directness, and purpose were wanted (with due respect for all the warts of her opponent)

Ruth, nice try at excuse making, but in reality, she lost because she is greedy, power hungry, totally crooked, dishonest, codependent, a liar, mentally ill, an alcoholic, and untrustable. Not exactly what I would call a person of high moral values and purity of virtue.

She likely lost because she was so arrogant that she couldn´t spend a little time in Wisconsin and Michigan.

And, then the Deplorables decided they´d vote.

They spent over $1 BILLION on an election they expected to win, and where the fix was in on any Dem competition.

Plus, remember how they WANTED Trump as the candidate to run against, how easy it was going to be for them?

"I think anyone who watched that campaign unfold would answer it the same way I did: Yes, sexism played a prominent part," she said.
I watched the campaign unfold and since I am writing this I must exist and therefore I fit the definition of "anyone". My observation was that with the Clinton´s past history of criminal participation many of the voters felt she was not a good choice to lead our country, even if the alternative was someone who was not totally savory (at that time). Ruth, words have meaning and if you reread your statement you will notice that it overstates the event.

Clearly Justice Ginsburg is disappointed, as she waited all through the Obama era for Hillary Clinton to be elected, so that Clinton could name a big time liberal progressive feminist replacement for her on the Supreme Court. Now it appears that Ginsburg may have to wait another seven years to again gain that opportunity, and even then, that is not a sure thing as the man upstairs could weigh in at anytime.

That fact that this ACLU communist is on the Supreme Court for life is a national disgrace. The Supreme Court should never, ever, have the amount of power they currently have and it´s members should certainly NOT be appointed for life.

This creature should be impeached and removed from the legal profession for advising foreign governments NOT to follow the U.S. Constitution. No one who puts other forms of government above ours should be ruling on national laws. It is a sick joke forced on us by decades of corrupt politicians.

Hillary´s toxic PC feminism doomed her campaign. So did 24 years of Barack Obama, George W Bush, and Bill Clinton. People were sick and tired of business as usual in Washington, and Trump offered a real alternative.

Ginsburg is a Supreme Court Justice, and needs to stop indulging in politics.

After reading this, I have concluded that Ginsburg is completely incompetent or she is just an idiot. Her statements are so out of touch with reality its unbelievable. Hillary Clinton was the most compromised candidate in history and the most hateful. She was hated by half of America, the same half she hates. The sooner Ginsgurg is off the court the better for humanity.

Maybe Ruthie is right. Let´s give her a little credit. She probably was sober long enough ot have a cogent thought. Maybe its the beginnnig of an eye opening moment for Ruthie and Dems that men are voting in their interest. Maybe, just maybe, the Dems would do well to stop the 2 generation blame game for all the universe´s problems on men and start taking their concerns into consideration.

Scientists have created the first ever human-sheep hybrids, paving the way for organs to be grown in animals which can be transplanted into humans. The successful Stanford University project could even open the door to finding a cure for type 1 diabetes by creating healthy pancreases to regulate blood sugar. While scientists have previously developed human-pig hybrids, sparking excitement that they could use them grow human organs, no team has been able to take it to the next step. But Stanford´s team, which has already successfully transplanted pancreases into mice, is tipped to be the first after now that they have produced a

The issue is hugely sensitive because the role is not hereditary and will not pass automatically to the Prince of Wales on the Queen´s death. The Commonwealth has set up a "high level group" to look at the way the international organisation is governed. This group is meeting later, officially to review how the Commonwealth is run by its secretariat and governors. It said the issue of the succession of the head of the Commonwealth was not part of the group´s mandate, but described the day-long discussions as "open". However, senior sources added that the gathering in London would also consider what happens when the

News of Jimmy Garoppolo´s reported five-year, $137.5 million contract — the richest in NFL history — is predictably reverberating across the internet. The 49ers quarterback is set to get paid; the contract doles out $90 million in the first three years, the most in league history. In his five starts for the 49ers last season, he earned a base salary of $820,077. He´s 5-0 in those starts (7-0 overall for his career), and he threw six touchdowns for 1,542 yards. According to Matt Maiocco of NBC Bay Area, $74 million of the deal is guaranteed. The previous NFL contract record

Spread of breast cancer linked to compound
in asparagus and other foods
Guardian [UK], by Ian Sample    Original Article
Posted By: konocti95- 2/7/2018 7:53:57     Post Reply
Breast cancer patients could be encouraged to cut asparagus and other foods from their diets in the future to reduce the risk of the disease spreading, scientists say. Researchers are investigating whether a change in diet could help patients with breast tumours after studies in mice showed that asparagine, a compound first identified in asparagus but present in many other foods, drives the spread of the disease to other organs. When scientists reduced asparagine in animals with breast cancer, they found that the number of secondary tumours in other tissues fell dramatically. The spread of malignant cells, often to the bones, lungs and brain, is the main cause of death among patients who are diagnosed with breast cancer.

The earliest Britons were black-skinned, with dark curly hair and possibly blue eyes, new analysis of a 10,000-year-old Somerset skeleton has revealed. Scientists at the Natural History Museum have used pioneering genetic sequencing and facial reconstruction techniques to prove that the first hunter-gatherers successfully to inhabit Britain were far darker in complexion than previously thought. The groundbreaking discovery was made in a “stroke of luck” after archeologists found scraps of DNA in the ear of the Mesolithic “Cheddar Man”, the oldest complete skeleton ever found in the UK and one of the museum’s

A California judge ruled Monday the state couldn’t force a cake shop owner to bake a cake for a gay couple’s wedding, ruling that doing so would constitute a violation of free speech. Superior Court Judge David Lampe denied the State of California’s request for a preliminary injunction that sought to force bakeshop owner Cathy Miller to design a wedding cake for a gay couple. “For this court to force such compliance would do violence to the essentials of Free Speech guaranteed under the First Amendment,” Lampe ruled, according to a press release sent to The Daily Caller News Foundation.

Comic book readers are apparently not fans of progressive politics—a fact no more evident in Marvel’s decision to cancel every single one of its comics that has been nominated by the LGBTQ advocacy group, GLAAD. In December, the publisher announced its decision to cancel many of its comics, citing poor sales. LGBTQ, feminist, and social justice-themed comics involving stories that revolved around Black Lives Matter, illegal immigration, and LGBTQ issues were among those to end up on the chopping block.

Adam Rippon, the openly gay figure skater who helped the United States win a bronze medal in team competition and became one of the biggest breakout stars of the PyeongChang Olympics, has gotten his first big break before the Winter Games have even concluded. Rippon, a darling of the competition for saying things that have been at turns smart, creative, and refreshing for viewers, has been hired by NBC as a correspondent for the rest of the Games. NBC confirmed the news, first reported by USA Today, with Rippon expected to work on TV as well as the digital and

Students are in the middle of a lie-in protest outside the White House over gun laws just days after 17 people were killed in the Florida high school shooting massacre. Groups of students from Washington DC staged the protest on Monday on a road leading to the White House. They took turns lying on the road for three minutes - the same amount of time 19-year-old Nikolas Cruz went on a firing spree at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School last week. Other students stood by holding signs that read ´Am I next?´ and ´Is Congress or the NRA making our

And now, ladies and gentlemen, for your viewing pleasure, the first rendition of the national anthem at a major sporting event that would be more appropriate for some steamy scene from a movie than honoring those who have fought for the United States of America. Here is Fergie singing the anthem at the NBA All-Star Game on Sunday. Viewer discretion advised: (Video) Reaction varied from hilarity at Fergie’s screeching to jokes about how she was attempting to make Francis Scott Key into a composer of a song more appropriate for the bedroom to simple outrage that Fergie would dishonor the

Hillary Clinton´s campaign chairman John Podesta – whose emails were hacked and leaked during the 2016 campaign – called out President Trump Sunday for not doing more to punish the Russians for their interference or prep the nation for when the Kremlin tries to do it again. ´If this is information warfare, then I think he´s the first draft-dodger in the war,´ Podesta claimed of Trump on Face the Nation. Asked about Trump´s motivations, Podesta said that Trump´s psyche is ´complicated,´ but added that ´he certainly can´t accept that this activity may have helped him, and I think he just constantly tries

An activist group has launched a voter registration effort aimed at black voters at screenings of the “Black Panther” movie nationwide. Members of the Electoral Justice Project, an offshoot of the Movement for Black Lives, are seeking to motivate black voters and increase political engagement with the #WakandaTheVote campaign, the website Blavity reported. Wakanda is the fictional African nation featured in the long-anticipated Marvel film “Black Panther.” Kayla Reed, Jessica Byrd and Rukia Lumumba founded the Electoral Justice Project last year, and told Blavity that the movement has been effective “because we meet our communities where they are, whether that´s

Adam Rippon, in his own words, is “not a gay icon or America’s gay sweetheart.” No, “I am just America’s sweetheart. And I am just an icon.” (Snip) This will come as little surprise to those who have been following these Olympic Games. Even before the Games began, Rippon, one of the first openly gay male athletes to compete for the United States in an Olympics, was in the headlines over a feud with Vice President Mike Pence. Since, he’s become one of the most recognizable stars of these Olympics, a celebrated member of the gay community, as well as

Friday on MSNBC’s “All In,” Rep. Jerry Nadler (D-NY) said Russian interference with U.S. elections and political processes that resulted in 13 indictments against Russian nationals was “equivalent” to the attack on Pearl Harbor by Japanese in 1941. Partial transcript as follows: NADLER: My reaction to the news is this is absolute proof of what we knew all along and what the president has denied, namely that we were attacked. This is a very serious attack against the United States by a hostile foreign power, an attack against our election process, our entire governing process. We know that the attack

He has no idea how to make a majority of voters choose him. Mitt’s back. The former governor of Massachusetts and occasional native son of Michigan has a new persona: Mr. Utah. He’s going to bring Utah conservatism to the whole Republican party and to the country at large. Wholesome, efficient, industrious, faithful. “Utah has a lot to teach the politicians in Washington,” he says in announcing his Senate campaign. Maybe. There’s always been something unstable about Mitt Romney’s political identity.

The corner of Atlantic and Bedford Avenues in Crown Heights is Ground Zero of this middle-income neighborhood’s high anxiety. For the last two years, neighbors have complained to anyone who will listen that groups of men become an occupying force in the sidewalks around the huge 350-bed Atlantic Armory Men’s Shelter. On several recent mornings, the men were out en masse. Two Department of Homeless Services police officers leaned against the fence outside the 800-bed red-brick shelter. About 50 feet away a man nonchalantly urinated against the facility wall. Across Pacific St., men were sprawled on chairs and milk crates.
