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

Washington Examener, by Steven Nelson

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.

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.

The Senate Ethics Committee offered a brutal rebuke of New Jersey Sen. Robert Menendez on Thursday, accusing the Democrat of providing political favors for a friend in exchange for expensive gifts and vacations. “The Committee concludes that your actions violated Senate Rules and related statutes, and reflected discredit upon the Senate,” reads a bi-partisan letter from the ethics panel’s six members. The committee, with Georgia Sen. Johnny Isakson as chair, ordered Menendez to repay the fair market value of gifts he received from his friend, a Florida eye doctor, Salomon Melgen, and to amend his public financial disclosure reports.

BEIJING (CBSNewYork) — China is rolling out a high-tech plan to give all of its 1.4 billion citizens a personal score, based on how they behave.

University of Michigan Professor Sarah Ensor published an academic journal article this month that argues that humans should establish erotic relationships with plants. Originally highlighted by the Twitter account New Real Peer Review, Ensor’s journal article explores the field of “ecosexuality,” a term which means the sexual relationship between humans and plants. Advocates in the field argue that the Earth needs to be treated with love. In addition to reducing harmful environmental practices, ecosexuals believe that humans should physically make love to the Earth. Ensor, an English professor at the University of Michigan, begins by citing the “Ecosex Manifesto,” which

Congress may ban the slaughter of cats and dogs to sell as meat or for human consumption and punish offenses with a year in prison and a $2,500 fine. The House Committee on Agriculture approved by voice vote an amendment to the farm bill Wednesday that would make all sales of domesticated canines and felines illegal, Politico reported. “Adopting this policy signals that the United States will not tolerate the disturbing practice in our country,” California Republican Rep. Jeff Denham said in a statement as he introduced the amendment. Some believed the ban unnecessary, as eating dogs and cats is rare in the

Jefferson, IA — The city of Jefferson has come up with a solution that involves shooting cats to control the population. There are multiple feral cat colonies in the central Iowa town, and the city claims shooting the animals is its only option. "Cats don´t belong outside," Jefferson City Councilman Matt Wetrich said. "There´s research showing hundreds of millions of birds in the U.S. alone." Wetrich is a naturalist by trade and knows what feral cats do to an ecosystem.

Here´s one for all the parents out there: Is it OK to let your child eat peanut butter at Target? A mother on a New York parenting blog wrote Monday that while shopping at the store, she gave her four-year-old daughter a peanut butter and jelly sandwich, and "a woman stopped me to lecture me about peanut allergies." The child´s mother then asked other moms on UrbanBaby if it was now unacceptable to eat peanut butter in public. If your reaction is of course not, it´s a free country, you are definitely siding with the minority. The anti-peanut butter backlash was swift and brutal.

A new survey has found that a third of young millennials in the U.S. aren’t convinced the Earth is actually round. The national poll reveals that 18 to 24-year-olds are the largest group in the country who refuse to accept the scientific facts of the world’s shape. YouGov, a British market research firm, polled 8,215 adults in the United States to find out if they ever believed in the “flat Earth” movement. Only 66 percent of young millennials answered that they “always believe the world is round.” Science teachers across the U.S. will be shaking their heads after learning that nine

The budding social justice warrior still hasn’t given up on the idea that he can land a starting spot with a National Football League team simply by demanding that one is owed to him. He filed a “grievance” against the league last year claiming that the league and the various team owners were all “colluding” against him to keep him from playing. This month that process continues to grind on and the focus is on the Baltimore Ravens. They interviewed

Donald Trump has stayed uncharacteristically quiet on Twitter without posting a single tweet about the royal wedding. The President, who is usually especially active on the social media network early in the day, did not tweet anything all morning about the nuptials between Prince Harry and Meghan Markle, which ended at 9.00am ET. Rumors swirled about whether Trump would be invited to the wedding at Windsor Castle in Berkshire, but he was eventually left off the guest list, along with other political leaders. Prominent figures who made the cut included Oprah Winfrey, George and Amal Clooney and the Beckhams. Other A-listers including Idris

It means that five family members have to die before you get the real goodies. Granted, those goodies are amazing. Who wouldn´t want to live in a thousand year old castle (too bad it´s in Scotland) or have dozens of "servants" cater to your every whim and need? But that lifestyle depends on people believing that you are deserving of such wealth and privilege because you happened to be

The civil war between the Fox News Channel news and opinion sides appears to be hardening with chief political anchor Bret Baier having joined the fray. On Thursday May 17, Baier, a 20-year high-profile veteran of Fox News, entered the lion’s den – one of the hearts of the anti-Trump Resistance – when he went on the ABC Television Network daytime women’s chat show The View. His guest shot in “enemy territory” was a prominent stop on the media tour to promote his new book on Reagan and Gorbachev, Three Days in Moscow. The five women of The View, however – four of them unabashed leftists and one lone

More than 700 students and guests are registered to attend Harvard´s first Black Commencement, which will take place two days before the school´s traditional graduation events. (Snip) Every student will receive a stole made of traditional African kente cloth, meant to symbolize their shared heritage and to be worn with their cap and gown at the university´s graduation. Students have raised $35,000 for the event, mostly from schools within the university.

Former Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton acknowledged Friday that Democratic candidates around the country still face basic questions about what they stand for and which policies their party supports. Speaking at a Democrat Women’s Leadership Forum in Washington, D.C., Clinton urged party leaders to return to the basics and lay out the party’s values for voters. Fair wages, the “absolute promise of universal health care,” public school funding, gun safety reform and equal pay were at the top of the former first lady’s agenda items that she thought should stay central to the Democratic Party’s platform.

WASHINGTON — President Trump accused the F.B.I. on Friday, without evidence, of sending a spy to secretly infiltrate his 2016 campaign “for political purposes” even before the bureau had any inkling of the “phony Russia hoax.” In fact, F.B.I. agents sent an informant to talk to two campaign advisers only after they received evidence that the pair had suspicious contacts linked to Russia during the campaign. The informant, an American academic who teaches in Britain, made contact late that summer with one campaign adviser, George Papadopoulos, according to people familiar with the matter. He also met repeatedly in the

Sen. Mark Warner (D-Va.) warned Republican lawmakers on Friday not to expose the identity of top-secret FBI informant, saying that to do so would be "irresponsible" — and potentially illegal. "It would be at best irresponsible, and at worst potentially illegal, for members of Congress to use their positions to learn the identity of an FBI source for the purpose of undermining the ongoing investigation into Russian interference in our election," Warner, the top Democrat on the Senate Intelligence Committee, said in a statement. "Anyone who is entrusted with our nation’s highest secrets should act with the gravity and

Former President Jimmy Carter jabbed President Trump during his commencement speech at Liberty University in Virginia on Saturday, joking about the crowd size at the event. Carter pointed out that the crowd size at the commencement was bigger this year than when Trump spoke to Liberty graduates in 2017, the Associated Press reported. “I don’t know if President Trump would admit that," Carter said, referring to the Trump’s claim, which was widely determined to be false, that his inauguration crowd exceeded 1 million people. Carter wasn´t the only one to bring up the Trump inauguration crowd size Saturday. The Twitter

Former Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton told graduating students at Yale University on Sunday she was still grappling with the results of the 2016 election. "No, I’m not over it, I still think about the 2016 election, I still regret the mistakes I made,” Clinton said during an address as part of Yale University’s Class Day. “Today, as a person, I’m Okay. As an American, I’m concerned." “This is a moment to reach across divides of race, class, and politics to try to see the world through the eyes of people very different from ourselves and to return to rational

Former Education Secretary Arne Duncan said parents should pull their children out of school until Congress passes gun control legislation. "What if no children went to school until gun laws changed to keep them safe?" Duncan tweeted Saturday. Duncan, who served as secretary under President Obama, called the step "tragically necessary." "My family is all in if we can do this at scale. Parents, will you please join us?" he said. Duncan´s plea comes one day after 10 people were killed in a mass shooting at Santa Fe High School in Texas.
