A Clinton Dynasty?

Closing Thought–21Aug18

We have these petty dynasties in the political world……the Kennedys, the Bushes and now possibly a Clinton Dynasty.

It began with Bubba and has continued with Hillary and now their daughter Chelsea could keep up the political dynasty……

Chelsea Clinton will not rule out a future in politics. Per the Guardian, the daughter of Democratic superstars Bill and Hillary Clinton was plugging her children’s book at the Edinburgh international book festival when the question of her potential future in elected office was posed. While bashing Trump, the New York City resident said she is a big supporter of her state and local officials. However, if one of those politicians were to retire, Clinton can’t say exactly what she’d do. “If that were to change, if my city councillor were to retire, if my congresswoman were to retire, my senators, and I thought that I could make a positive impact, then I think I would really have to ask my answer to that question,” she said.

Meanwhile, Clinton did strike a somewhat political tone when addressing the Trump administration’s handling of undocumented immigrants. “I think I’m just so fundamentally my mother’s daughter that I’m far more outraged by the Trump administration ripping children away from their families at the border and not having reunified those children with their families now for months, than I am about anything he has ever done to my families,” she said. Per the Hill, Clinton said she is a “definite no now” in answer to whether she’d seek office, but “a definite maybe in the future.”

A definite NO?  That is about as accurate as all those politicians that want to spend more time with their families…yep it is a BS answer to a direct question….

I said back during the Hillary run and Chelsea was trotted out to support mom that it was just getting her ready to step up when her parents are through scamming the public….the American people.

She has learned from the best about greed and using government to achieve it…..plus she became a hedge fund manager and married one so all the greed is there so politics would be the perfect place to go for the future.

OMG! Will She Ever Shut Up?

Closing Thought–25May18

Another school shooting…..and few seem to care…..what a great country.

Not a month goes by that there is not yet another story about Hillary Clinton…..for Christ sake she lost the election and we are still have to relive the damn thing through her eyes.

I speeches since the voting has has blamed damn near everybody but Miss Piggy for her loss….that is everybody but the one person she should blame….herself.

Her newest excuse was an age old enemy of state….”socialists”…..

Hillary Clinton is incapable of coming to terms with her loss and now finds fault with greedy capitalists who are turning young people into socialists, as Paul Street explains.

Hillary Clinton’s take on “what happened” in the 2016 election is a running tale of victimization. She was the casualty of FBI Director James Comey and of Vladimir Putin and WikiLeaks. She was unjustly loathed by that “basket” of racist, sexist, nativist, and homophobic “deplorables” that is supposedly the American “heartland,” white working-class and rural population – people she recently painted (at an elite globalist gathering in Mumbai, India) as a bunch of “pessimistic,” slow-witted and retrograde losers. She was victimized by Bernie Sanders, who (Hillary complained) wasn’t even a “real Democrat” but had the unmitigated chutzpah to let his primary campaign challenge her prearranged coronation as the Democratic Party’s presidential candidate.

Never mind the series of stupid, arrogant, and largely unforced errors that crippled her uninspiring and policy-bereft insider campaign that was under her command. And never mind her own epic unpopularity before and during the campaign – disapproval earned over her many years of functioning as a cold and transparently elitist Establishment agent of the wealthy corporate and financial Few.

She needs to buck up and place the blame where blame is due….her campaign!

Democrats need to move past her whining….if they are ever to gain the seat of power again they need to find a message and let the scapegoating die.

One more Clinton piece of crap……

he new Wikileaks release shows the then Secretary of State ordering a war in Syria in order to overthrow the government and oust President Assad, claiming it was the “best way to help Israel”.

“The best way to help Israel deal with Iran’s growing nuclear capability is to help the people of Syria overthrow the regime of Bashar Assad,” Clinton forthrightly starts off by saying.

Even though all US intelligence reports had long dismissed Iran’s “atom bomb” program as a hoax (a conclusion supported by the International Atomic Energy Agency), Clinton continues to use these lies to “justify” destroying Syria in the name of Israel.

She specifically links Iran’s mythical atom bomb program to Syria because, she says, Iran’s “atom bomb” program threatens Israel’s “monopoly” on nuclear weapons in the Middle East.

If Iran were to acquire a nuclear weapon, Clinton asserts, this would allow Syria (and other “adversaries of Israel” such as Saudi Arabia and Egypt) to “go nuclear as well,” all of which would threaten Israel’s interests.

Prime example on our foreign policy……it is protect Israel at all costs……

Time for Hillary to just slide off into the dust bin of history.

Are We Sick Of Clinton Yet?

It seems that we may never get a rest from all things Clinton.

A year and half after the 2016 general election and we are still explaining what happened that allowed Hillary Clinton to lose her race.

She lost because of the Russians or was it the FBI or was it because of her message or maybe she was just an inferior candidate.

In my book she was a terrible candidate that was running against a horrible candidate and horrible won out.

And since November 2016 pundits have been explaining her loss and it is still being told to whoever will listen.  Even books about her and her loss are still being published…..

New York Times reporter Amy Chozick has a new book on Hillary Clinton and the 2016 election, and one anecdote in particular from it was getting attention on Friday. It’s from election night, when Chozick writes in Chasing Hillary: Ten Years, Two Presidential Campaigns, and One Intact Glass Ceiling that it finally became clear somebody had to break the news to Clinton that she was going to lose to Donald Trump. The task fell to “Robby Mook, the drained and deflated campaign manager,” per an excerpt in the Times. And when he finally did so, Clinton “didn’t seem all that surprised,” writes Chozick. Then the key Clinton quote: “‘I knew it. I knew this would happen to me,’ she said, now within a couple of inches of Mr. Mook’s ashen face. ‘They were never going to let me be president.'”

The Daily Beast has more on the book, including what would have been the “nut graf” of the Times story on a Clinton victory under the six-column headline “Madam President.” The paragraph would have begun, “No one in modern politics, male or female, has had to withstand more indignities, setbacks and cynicism.” And it would have ended: “But if she was guarded about her feelings and opinions, she believed it was in careful pursuit of a dream for generations of Americans: the election of the country’s first woman president.” The Washington Post review of the book details Chozick’s recollection of dealing with sexism from male Clinton staffers. And it has a quibble: “Unfortunately, too much of the book is devoted to Chozick’s worrying and whining—’Jesus did I whine’—about her status at the Times,” writes Carlos Lozada.

The Dems need to move past the Clinton loss and find the best candidate for 2020…..focusing on Clinton will not produce a good candidate.

Please stop all the whining and accept the loss and move on……politics has become sloppy and worthless…..time for a political revolution…..time to flush the governance toilet as it were.

Shep On Uranium One

Ever since the Dems have been calling for an investigation into the dealings of the Trump admin and the Russia bunch the Right wing has been desparetely searching for something thast they could use to counter all the bad news the trump camp is getting pertaining to Russia and its influence.

Well about a month agao they found their holy grail and the Uranium One story and the Clintons…..the problem is that it so much bullshit and even a FOX News journalist has shown just how fake this story is….and Shep Smith debunmks the story that all of FOX News has been passing off as fact….

Read the article and then watch his report in video……

Fox News’ Shepard Smith took six minutes out of his show Tuesday to debunk what has become Republicans’ attack du jour against Hillary Clinton and the Obama administration: “Uranium One.”

The narrative — on which the White House, Republican elected officials and conservative media have leaned in recent weeks to deflect from increasing scrutiny on Russian meddling in the 2016 election — is based on the faulty charge that Clinton sold influence, via donations to the Clinton Foundation, to Russian energy interests carrying out a deal that required her approval.

Smith began debunking the attack by showing a clip of Donald Trump on the campaign trail.

How much longer will the Right ignore the truth and keep pressing a lie?  My guess is as long as they can for truth means nothing to these slime wads on the Right.

Will She Ever Shut Up?

She is back!

Just when you thought it was safe to read the news……you then have your Johnson banged into a door.

I am talking about Hillary Clinton.  She is back and with a new book telling the world about her place in the world during the 2016 election and of course assigning blame for her overwhelming loss.

NO!  I have not read the book and will never….but apparently she does what she and all her cronies have been doing since the vote count….blaming Bernie and his supporters for her loss.

Letter to the editor: 

Hillary Clinton blaming Sen. Bernie Sanders for her loss is deeply offensive and beyond the pale.

Millions of citizens from all walks of life (myself included) supported Sanders passionately because we loved the positions he was willing to fight for and the fact that he was not beholden to wealthy corporate donors.

Clinton represents everything that is wrong with the political class in this country, in both the Democratic and Republican parties, which have lost touch with the real needs and cries of the people they’re supposed to represent. I sincerely hope that Sanders joins the growing movement for a viable new progressive party.

With her latest blame game, Clinton has only further alienated every true progressive who didn’t support her to begin with.

Sen. Bernie Sanders has spent years in Congress as an independent, not helping the Democratic Party much. But when Democrats put forth a woman, he pushed his way into the Democratic primary. Sanders has no allegiance to the Democratic Party and has done damage by bringing out the whining kids. I am not a fan.

— Victoria Kugler

I voted for Clinton, but in the primary I wanted Sanders. One problem was that Democrats had Clinton anointed.

— Karen Benson

Clinton blames Donald Trump, Sanders and just about everything and everyone for her failed run for the White House. How about looking in the mirror? She did not campaign very hard. She did not visit key states. She lost in the final weeks. She thought she had it in the bag. The ultimate example of entitlement.

— Sharon Raguckas

She is a typical arrogant politician……she just cannot bring herself to look at her terrible candidacy ans the reason she lost…..she had NO message but that has been the problem with most Dems since 2008….they have NOTHING to offer the American people.

I know it is a bitter pill to swallow….but do it anyway….you lost….stop whining and go spend some of your money…..

Time for her and her cronies to step aside and let the Dems get on with finding a message that will resonate with the American people….doing it the Clinton way is a dead issue.

Will she ever shut up?

Why Did Hillary Lose?

Really?  How long are the Dems gonna screw this dead donkey?

No this is NOT a post trying to understand why Clinton lost….most real voters know why….she was a shitty candidate.

Instead this is a look at something that I thought was either dead or dying….the anti-war vote.

There is evidence to support that her loss in Pennsylvania, Wisconsin and Michigan were from the votes of military families that are weary of all this war stuff….talk and action……

Now an important new study has come out showing that Clinton paid for this arrogance: professors argue that Clinton lost the battleground states of Wisconsin, Pennsylvania, and Michigan in last year’s presidential election because they had some of the highest casualty rates during the Iraq and Afghanistan wars and voters there saw Clinton as the pro-war candidate.

By contrast, her pro-war positions did not hurt her in New York, New Jersey, Connecticut, and California, the study says; because those states were relatively unscathed by the Middle East wars.

Source: Clinton lost because PA, WI, and MI have high casualty rates and saw her as pro-war, study says – Mondoweiss

I can see why these people would vote against her as she was perceived as a pro-war candidate where Trump was not…..

This is something that the DNC needs to keep in mind as they scramble to find a message that will play with the voters.

But yet the people in the Clinton admin from the 90’s are trying to get the DNC to move more toward the center…..

“Reject the siren calls of the left” is the advice Mark Penn and Andrew Stein offer for the Democratic Party in a New York Times op-ed. The two make a case for why Democrats have to move back to the centrist position advocated by President Bill Clinton in the mid-’90s—a position they say reversed into a “rush to the left” during President Obama’s last few years in office. That U-turn resulted in an upswing for “identity politics, class warfare, and big government,” all of which have worked against the Democrats at the voting booths, with big losses during Obama’s tenure in terms of legislative seats and control of both houses of Congress.

It has also hurt Dems’ standing with working-class voters, who’ve witnessed “the party being mired too often in political correctness, transgender bathroom issues, and policies offering more help to undocumented immigrants than to the heartland,” the authors write. The “good issues” Democrats should be pushing on as they “reject socialist ideas,” Penn and Stein write: better protections for US workers, a focus on rural areas, the opioid epidemic, and a more balanced take on immigration. “Americans are looking for can-do Democrats in the mold of John F. Kennedy and Bill Clinton—leaders who rose above partisanship to unify the country, who defended human rights and equality passionately, and who also encouraged economic growth and rising wages,” they write. Full op-ed here.

Seriously?  If they find a Clinton-esque candidate for 2020 then they will lose again.

The longer these wars continue the more the anti-war vote will come into play…..is my hope…..

Hillary lost because she was a horrible candidate and if they run a centrist next time then they will be asking all these same questions again.

Keep in mind the government of Bubba Clinton is what has brought us to this spot in time……do we want to relive all this again?

The DEms have lost sight of the “fronts” that help their power….the trip to the Center has made the Dem Party a toothless tiger…

“The solution of social problems consisted in the adjustment of conflicting interests; and the real business of politics, then, was simply the control of work and of the conditions under which work was performed. The liberals were altogether wrong in their insistence on individual liberty; in society, the parts must be subordinated to the whole.”

— Saint-Simon, 1802, digested by Edmund Wilson, To The Finland Station, 1940

The Dems need to get in touch with the people they abandoned in the 90’s……or they can watch the party crash and burn yet again.

Thoughts?

Closing Thought–09Dec16

Clinton sez “Thank you”……..

It is a bit slow news these days…we get pundits whining about what Trump is doing….we get Right wingers whining about what others are doing….and then there are the crazies and the #pizzagate bullsh*t…..so I thought I would indulge myself with something that has nothing to do with the happenings in the world….other than to make me cringe.

FLASH!  the election is over and Hillary Clinton had her ass handed to her!  (Just in case Cheetos and Warcraft has had you busy)….

She feels bad about losing so she wanted to do something nice for her supporters…..not all supporters…just the ones with deep pockets…..

Democrats Hillary Clinton and Tim Kaine are planning a thank-you party next week for those who donated millions to their presidential campaign.

The party at the Plaza Hotel’s Grand Ballroom on Dec. 15 is expected to feature fashion icon Anna Wintour, investor Alan Patricof, hedge fund manager Marc Lasry and more, according to the New York Post’s Page Six.

“Hopefully there’s no balconies so nobody can jump,” an insider told Page Six.

Isn’t that just too sweet for words?

Instead of wearing knee pads at these functions she should go on live TV and apologize to the millions that were duped into thinking she was a good candidate….just a thought.

These people, the ones with ALL the money, will always be around to pay the next candidate…do not fear for them…they will find another candidate to own….but can the same be said for all those voters that were fooled into voting for her?
