‘Backwards’: Hillary Clinton Apparently
Still Has No Clue Why She Lost

The Federalist, by Holly Scheer

Original Article

Posted By:Pluperfect, 3/13/2018 4:33:24 AM

Hillary Clinton isn’t ready to let go of her election loss to President Trump. Clinton is in Mumbai, India, at the India Today Conclave, a “a meeting point for the best minds from India and around the world to map the geopolitical and economic future of the country.” But instead of keeping her focus on the complex and numerous problems facing India, Clinton took aim Monday at Americans who voted for Trump. Her patronizing and condescending words targeted voters in states that twice voted for Obama, and show she still doesn’t understand why Americans didn’t vote for her. Clinton compared herself

This is pathetic. We are watching a seriously ill woman losing touch with reality. Who are her friends/enablers who continue to allow her to do this?

She has the fortune to say without ramifications what the progressives really think about Trump voters. Make no mistake they all think this.

This is what happens when you are anointed - or anoint yourself - as a representative of women. You develop a God-like complex that requires you to be steadfast and solid in the face of any criticism whatsoever, especially from males. You refute what is often constructive commentary - even from other women -
because you feel that you don´t need it or that you are too good for it.

If Hillary had taken stock of herself following her "shock" election loss, she´d probably be in a more solid position to launch into a 2020 campaign instead of appearing bitter and clueless.

She hasn´t figured out that we do not want the feds telling us we have to eat our spinach. It´s none of their stinking business what we eat or how to live our lives. We have the right to make bad decisions and live with the consequences of those decisions!!

By the way, you mean going back to the 60s when the republicans passed the equal rights act over the objection of Johnson and the dems? Or when most black children got to grow up in a nuclear family with a loving mother and father. You mean going back to that Hilliary??? HMMMM??

"what’s he really going to do and what has he ever done that convinces me that he could actually accomplish any of it."

Ummm - WIN YUGELY! With words like this, Hillary is stabbing a dagger into dems and BO.

Hillary said, "judge us on our accomplishments". All that BO and the dems did for 8 years was either a failure right out of the gate OR is being undone because it was a disaster. 17 dem senators just voted to "relax" Dodd-Frank. BOCare is falling apart. As soon as Trump took over, the economy soared. ISIS is decimated; most of their fighters are not going to crawl out of the hills later to attack again because they are DEAD. New world relationships are being forged advantageous to the US and while the world might grumble about what we are doing, they respect us.

We WILL judge by accomplishments Hillary. BO, dems, and YOU corrupted our government for your personal and political purposes. You failed at all your tasks.

Trump is winning, for US.

On Hillary´s severe mental condition:

There is a strange, but very common mental disease called "MD"- It is Maladaptive Daydreaming, first described by an Israeli Psychologist, Dr. Dr Eli Somer. It is often displayed by patients who have suffered long term abuse and/or confinement. Vietnam P.O.W.s, like John McCain suffered it- and it is a form of PTSD. But, in some people who live very busy, involved lives that they themselves have little control over, it demonstrates in debilitating ways.

Hillary Clinton is, I believe, a clinical case of it. She has fantasized about herself becoming - basically- Queen of the World. A grand mover and shaker of Global events. She is trapped inside a self made leftist cocoon that leaves little room for everyday thinking. The fantasies are perpetual. And such thoughts amplify other self damaging mental processes like severe narcissism and incredible feelings of paranoia. She fantasizes about everything and everyone. When things do not go her way, she enters into violent, vulgar displays of emotional outbursts that can last for days. Excuses for her failures become excessive and bizarre. She can no longer tell the difference between her fantasies and reality. In short, the woman is a certifiable nut!

It would be easy to pass off the insults and frankly out right slander as politically expedient but she really believes this about us.

Somewhere in the past deep inside a smoky democrat strategy session people who knew better decided that to defeat the GO of P that they would launch a propoganda campaign where they would spin their own lack of morality and shift it to the GOP. Vietnam became Nixon´s war, Jim Crow Misogyny ect. became the GOP´s problem, not the party of slavery the KKK Kennedy and Clinton´s treatment of women not to mention Johnson. You have to admit it has been spectacularly successful.

The youth of that era became chronological adults in that climate and grew up to look down on anyone who wasn´t in the cool kids club. That eventually grew into to hate for the transgressions primarily products of the democrat party now successfully shifted to "conservatives.". The left does its level best to keep the wounds of their original sins open to foster hatred which has become their political platform.

That hate is being leveraged for political power to unravel the grandest political system in human history, the most prosperous and generous. Now the largest generation of voters are prepared to abandon the age of enlightenment motivated by manufactured hate that has developed two to three generations of true believers. All started by those who knew better.

Well, one thing this shows is that the "deplorables" slur during the campaign was not an off-moment, an unfortunate word choice, from a fatigued candidate. Seeing much of the American electorate as deplorable is clearly Hillary´s deepest conviction. She despises many of the people she presumed to lead.

Her remarks in India should be required reading for anyone who continues to assail voters who chose Trump, and continue to choose him without one iota of regret. The more we see of Hillary, the genuine article, the more clear it is how close America was to the edge of the precipice on election day 2016. Where would we all be now if this empty, wine-addled criminal had become president?

I can´t recall Donald Trump in all his campaign telling us to eat fast food and ice cream. CNN might have spent a week telling us Donald Trump ate two scoops of ice cream and put ketchup on his well done steaks.
My favorite part of the article was "a meeting point for the best minds from India and around the world". My conclusion was India is in big trouble if the ´deplorable people´ of that country listen to this old clueless, ignorant, perpetually dumb old washed up wind bag Hillary Clinton.
The woman is truly ill mentally to travel around the world to make statements like this. Obama did it on his global apology tour when he first came into office. There´s something wrong with the left because they all take their cues from Hillary and Obama about the middle of the not-so-United States. Hillary Clinton makes Bernie Sanders seem normal and nice.

Hillary basically says: "Who are you going to believe? Me ... or your lying eyes?!"

She wanted us to "eat our spinach" because she cares while Trump "offered only ice cream". And, according to her, we were all too stupid to know what´s good for us and then he couldn´t deliver it anyway! As Bugs Bunny would say "What a maroon".

My 401k, my income tax bill, the unemployment rate for every color and type, the overall economy, the stock market,etc ... all better than in years ... and done while continuing to crack down on import cheats, international thugs and illegals tells me I want MORE ICE CREAM!

I´ll take a triple scoop, please, President Trump.

Where is her family? Surely, in all seriousness, they should be looking after this obviously sick woman.....a daughter and a husband. (I wa going to say ´faithful husband´ but endless reports of his many daliances would invalidate the descriptive word "faithful".)
This is a totally sick, dysfunctional family
My personal humanity sees the three Clintons as a sad family unit that for all intents and purposes have never experienced the wonder and blessing of a happy family unit.
Money only buys so much. A hug, kiss and support of one another lasts much longer and has a lasting effect in our lives.

She´s not there to be part of the conference, except the press conference so she can fire her salvos of biting criticism against the man who relegated her to sham appearances in third world countries just to get near a microphone. My guess is the Dem enemedia knows she´s toxic and they cut off her access.

Under John Brennan, the CIA operated as an opposition research outfit for the Hillary Clinton campaign. It appears from leaked news stories in the British press that Brennan’s oafish spying on Trump began around April 2016, right after Trump’s biggest primary victories. As it became urgently clear to Brennan that Trump was going to face off against Hillary, Brennan turned to “intelligence partners” in Europe for dirt on Trump. But they didn’t have any, save some pretty skimpy material on “contacts” between Trump campaign officials and Russians. Whatever Brennan collected was so insubstantial that Robert Mueller

DOJ officials told Fox News the response was transmitted to Capitol Hill, but it was not immediately clear what the response was. The House Oversight Committee told Fox News it did not receive any documents from the DOJ, but did receive a verbal response and expected to get the documents by Thursday.

I´ve been asked a number of times about John Kerry’s unauthorized actions with Iran compared to Ted Kennedy’s unauthorized actions with the Kremlin. Kerry, this spring 2018, sought to undermine President Trump’s policies, whereas Kennedy, spring 1983, sought to undermine President Reagan’s policies. Many people — including the president of the United States — want to know if Kerry’s actions constitute a violation of the Logan Act. It’s a question I’m frequently asked about Kennedy. The short answer, in both cases, is that I’m not the source to provide the answer. Congress is. The Democratic Congress in the 1980s didn’t hesitate

All but one of the 239 people on the doomed Malaysia Airlines Flight 370 had probably been unconscious — incapacitated by the sudden depressurization of the Boeing 777 — and had no way of knowing they were on an hours-long, meandering path to their deaths. Along that path, a panel of aviation experts said Sunday, was a brief but telling detour near Penang, Malaysia, the home town of Captain Zaharie Ahmad Shah. On two occasions, whoever was in control of the plane — and was probably the only one awake — tipped the craft to the left. The experts believe Zaharie, the plane´s

America’s withdrawal from the Iran deal and relocation of its Israeli embassy to Jerusalem send an unmistakable signal about the emerging Trump foreign policy: The administration wants to enlarge American power rather than adjust to decline. For now at least, the Middle East is the centerpiece of this new assertiveness. For President Obama, Iran’s rise was an unavoidable fact. Confronting Iran meant risking a war even bigger and uglier than the one in Iraq. Mr. Obama wasn’t only personally opposed to such a war, he believed that neither Congress nor public opinion would sustain it. The era in which the U.S.

SEATTLE — After intense lobbying by local businesses and a bold threat by Amazon to curtail development in its hometown, the Seattle City Council on Monday approved a smaller and more limited tax on big companies than originally envisioned. The new tax — dubbed the “Amazon Tax” by locals — will fund affordable housing and homeless services in a city whose economic boom, driven in no small part by Amazon, has priced many residents out of the area and forced some onto the streets. Amazon, which halted two major expansion projects in Seattle in protest over the larger tax increase, said it

The next day, a story in The New York Times — “Jews In Grave Danger In All Moslem Lands” — reported that Jewish communities throughout the Arab world were under siege. Jews were starting to be fired from their jobs or terrorized into fleeing. Across the region, said the Times, “the stage is being set for a tragedy of incalculable proportions.” That was no exaggeration. In the months that followed the birth of Israel — a birth midwifed by the United Nations but violently opposed

Vatican City — Pope Francis says he has thought about when it might be time to “take leave” of his flock. Francis made the comment during his morning homily Tuesday; the Vatican didn’t release the full text. Francis was reflecting on St. Paul discerning when to leave his flock in the care of others, a decision Francis said all bishops must make. He said: “When I read this, I think about myself, because I’m a bishop and I’ll have to take my leave.” Francis has said retired Pope Benedict XVI “opened a door” to future popes by resigning. While the 81-year-old pope

Washington - Senate candidate Mitt Romney of Utah said Sunday a prominent Baptist minister shouldn’t be giving the prayer that opens the US Embassy in Jerusalem because he’s a “religious bigot.” In a tweet, the former Massachusetts governor and 2012 Republican presidential nominee criticized Dallas minister Robert Jeffress for his remarks about Jews, Mormons and Islam. The Jerusalem Open House on Monday also lambasted Jeffress’s participation, saying he had in the past called gay rights promoters “pedophilia activists” and said homosexuality was a “perversion.” Jeffress, a Southern Baptist who vigorously

WASHINGTON — Former acting Attorney General Sally Yates said she had something to get off her chest about President Trump at the 2018 Ideas Conference hosted by the Center for American Progress on Tuesday: Don’t ignore his attacks on the rule of law. “What I worry about is the normalization of so much that is not normal,” said Yates, who was fired by Trump in January 2017 after refusing to comply with his controversial executive order banning travel from seven Muslim-majority countries. “There is a time-honored tradition at the Department of Justice, at least since Watergate, that is nonpartisan,” Yates said.

Martin Luther King Jr. once said there is nothing in the world more dangerous than sincere ignorance. Well, sincere ignorance had a banner day last week when President Trump unilaterally withdrew from the Iran nuclear deal. A CNN/ORC poll taken shortly before Trump’s decision found that a majority of Americans — 63 percent — wanted the U.S. to stay in the deal. But get this: 62 percent of Americans believed Iran had violated its terms. To me, the second result is the more alarming. That poll is proof of sincere ignorance of the deal on the part of nearly two-thirds of Americans. They are under the spell of Trump’s

First United Airlines barred an emotional support peacock from boarding. Now American Airlines is telling passengers some of their service and emotional support animals - including goats, hedgehogs and tusked creatures - can´t fly. The carrier is joining rival airlines in tightening rules for passengers flying with emotional support animals, expanding the list of animals that can´t fly in addition to requiring customers vouch for their animal´s ability to behave. Federal laws require airlines to permit passengers with disabilities to travel with service and emotional support animals in the cabin, though airlines can require a statement from a licensed mental

While Rudy Giuliani has embarked on a recent media blast on behalf of President Trump, former mayor Michael Bloomberg in a commencement speech Saturday at Texas´ Rice University warned of "an endless barrage of lies" and a trend toward "alternate realities." The three-term City Hall chief didn´t mention Giuliani or Trump by name. However, he instead blamed "extreme partisanship" for the current barrage of dishonesty in politics.

A U.S. Army chaplain who served in Afghanistan is fighting to save his husband from deportation after he was arrested by Immigration and Customs Enforcement agents in Charlotte, North Carolina. "He said, ´Do you think we´re going to arrest the spouse of an active-duty Army officer?´" Brown told Newsweek. (Snip) In a statement sent to Newsweek, ICE spokesman Bryan Cox said the couple´s "claims they possess a ´marriage waiver´ are not accurate." He said such a waiver, form I-130, "certifies the existence of a family relationship but does not confer any type of immigration benefit" and said Brown and Avila

SEATTLE – The Seattle City Council on Monday approved a controversial but compromise head tax on large businesses to pay for programs for the homeless. The tax would raise about $48 million a year – less than the original proposal of $75 million but more than the $40 million that Mayor Jenny Durkan had proposed. Durkan says she will sign the bill. Amazon, downtown´s economic giant, immediately blasted the proposal and what it said was a hostile approach to larger businesses that "forces us to question our growth here." The tax passed in an 8-1 vote on an amendment, but several

MELBOURNE, Australia -- When you hear "world tour" you usually think of superstars performing concerts in various cities for adoring fans. Not so with the presidentially deprived, entitlement-driven Hillary Clinton. Last week, Hillary Clinton came to Melbourne, Australia´s second largest city, and to Sydney, its largest, with a huge chip on her shoulder. The chip has been there since the 2016 election and seems to be growing larger with every appearance. As with almost everything else the Clintons do, it cost to hear her bitterness. Those who went to hear Clinton speak, more than 5,000 people, paid between $200 and $500 Australian
