Coping Skills

Obama’s ambassador to the UN invited a bunch of her fellow feminist dingbats to an Election Night victory party in November 2016. It didn’t quite work out the way they had hoped. In fact, these “strong, independent women” have been dealing with PTSD as a result of their Election Night loss ever since.

“It’s like we’ve somehow collectively landed in this place, but the people who are going to feel this, and be affected by this are these innocents. And as it happens, I was looking at a young child, but there’s so many other innocents who are being subjected to the cruelty, as we speak here today,” Power said.

She added, “But yes, I think that scene moves viewers the most because it triggers, I think, a kind of post-traumatic stress about their own election night experience, which mirrored mine.”

She should travel down to Walter Reed Hospital and talk to some veterans about coping with PTSD. I am sure they will welcome her insight.

Is it just me, or does Samantha Power look like a transgendered Sen. Jeff Flake? MTF mid-transition. The hormones have kicked in but the surgery hasn’t been scheduled? That sounds about right.



  1. Actually, I thought Sen. Flake looked like a trans-gendered Amb. Samantha Powers. Recently he’s certainly acted-like several important boy-parts were lacking.

  3. Quote from link below:

    If you’re a friend or relative of people who are depressed, try to be a good listener, pay real attention to them. Be ready to accept that they feel bad, that they feel that there’s no justice, that they are desperately sad. Keep talking, and avoid confrontations.

    Trump’s victory triggers increase in calls to mental health agencies

    “Keep talking, and avoid confrontations.”

    Alrighty. But why do I think they may have forgotten to give Antifa a heads up for the year 2017, then?

  4. Well-off white liberals fancy themselves oppressed, they fancy themselves suffering from PTSD, they imagine their political opponents to be no different from Hitler and the Nazis and then they fancy themselves part of some noble resistance — this must be satisfying a deep psychological need.

  5. A younger Rep. John R. Lewis faced riot police and dogs bravely in the Deep South, now a slightly-naughty word from the President of the United States against the Deep State breaks-him to tears… [/time-to-retire]

  6. Regular followers of Twitchy will note that Samantha Power is featured regularly, as one of the Obama acolytes who is consistently sounding the alarm against the dangers of the actions of her previous employer’s successor. And regularly getting her tweets thrown back in her face with reminders of how the administration she worked for capitulated on most of the things she is now overly concerned about.

    Someone needs to start a summer camp for her and fellow travelers like creative writer Ben Rhodes so they can learn to overcome their PTDS [Post-Trump Derangement Syndrome].

  7. A younger Rep. John R. Lewis faced riot police and dogs bravely in the Deep South […]

    He was a hothead then (as viewers of the film Selma will remember) and he’s a hothead today. Thing is, he had a reason to be a hothead back in the days when Martin Luther King Jr was within earshot. Not attending the inauguration last year and calling the POTUS a racist this year doesn’t make him look like an elder statesman, but rather a bitter old man.

  8. I guess someone like Samantha Power can’t imagine the possibility that smarter people than her clique members elected Trump to the Presidency and that her sleeping daughter was inheriting a good thing.

  11. Quote after following links:

    “I thought what an amazing night for them. I mean, that’s what America represents to the world, when a glass ceiling is shattered in our country, it creates a whole new sense of possibility for people everywhere,” Power told Politico.

    Ah! Now I get it.

    Antifa’s glass breaking venture all throughout 2017 was just a secret, consolation ploy only meant to put a stop on Power’s descent into despondence. How thoughtful.

    Someone, please the give the update to the shop owners and their insurance companies.

  12. These people are ccrraazzyy, our victory is a fleeting thing. If they are patient either Trump will screw the pooch or enough of their college indoctrinated youths will show up and vote. They they get to reducate us.

  14. You know, as much as I dislike Obama and thought his presidency was a disaster, I never spent as much time brooding over it as these people are over Trump.

  16. Samantha Power is married to Cas Sunstein. Sunstein authored “The Second Bill of Rights: FDR’s Second Revolution and Why We Need it More than Ever.” Here is a review of that book:

    A new intellectual absolutism has now emerged. Mild-mannered University of Chicago law professor Cas Stunstein has been advancing the radical notion that all rights —— including rights usually held to be “against” the state, such as the right to the freedom of speech and right not to be arbitrarily imprisoned or tortured –– are grants from the state. (……) he argued that “all legal rights are, or aspire to be, welfare rights,” that is positive rights from the state. There is no difference in kind between the right not to be tortured and the right of taxpayer subsidized dental care. (….)Sunstein seeks to give constitutional status to welfare rights. (….)

    (Sunstein) states that if a nation becomes committed to certain rights, they may migrate into the Constitution itself.

    Obama stacked his administration with this type of philosophy and set them loose to regulate away under the pretense that Sunstein’s assertions were in play.

    Obama, et al., operated as if “rights” seemingly inferred in the penumbra emanating from the Constitution are in play. As the elite, the Obamanauts could “find” them as the need arose.

    As this Trump Dossier investigation unfolds, we are bound to see more and more of the sly manipulation of the assumption of the law by the Sunstein moles. There is very compelling evidence that the Sunstein acolytes were at the top of the DOJ, the FBI, State Department, IRS and various intelligence agencies.

    Power in the hands of corrupt people yields corruption. We are facing a situation where members of Congress are going to be exposed for “looking the other way” in their duty to unmask corruption. Not only did they look the other way, they colluded to suppress any investigation of wrong doing. (Even thinking aloud about impeaching Trump is evidence of their desperation.)

    Congressman Nunes has been an El Cid in his singular attention to duty and the rule of law. Ditto Admiral Mike Rogers.

    Here are the people who are in the crosshairs: DOJ side: Asst. Attorney General Sally Yates, Asst. AG Head of National Security Division John P Carlin; Deputy Attorney Bruce Ohr; and legal liaison between Main Justice and FBI, Attorney Lisa Page.

    FBI side: FBI Director Jim Comey; Asst. FBI Director Andrew McCabe; Director of Counterintelligence W.H. “Bill Priestap”; FBI Chief Legal Counsel James Baker; and lead FBI Counterintelligence Agent Peter Strzok.

    Outsiders (The Dossier Crew):

    Fusion GPS co-founder Glenn Simpson; the wife of Simpson, Mary B. Jacoby; a hired private contractor, familiar with CIA operations, Nellie Ohr (also wife of DOJ team insider Bruce Ohr); contracted former British MI6 Agent and head of Russia House, Christopher Steele (also attributed authorship of ‘Dossier’).

    [Mary Jacoby’s relationship with the Clintons’ goes all the way back to the Rose Law Firm. Mary Jacoby also brings the “Dossier Trail” to the White House.]

    John McCain had to get his copy of the Russian Dossier from Glenn Simpson at Fusion-GPS, despite McCain’s intermediary, David Kramer, meeting with Steele in England to discuss the content. Glenn Simpson and Fusion-GPS are also facing numerous lawsuits as it relates to the content of the dossier. Christopher Steele is refusing to answer questions except in court. The goal of gaining intelligence credibility for the dossier was a one-way street.

    As Hillary Clinton and U.S. media now attempt to distance themselves from the Dossier, they cannot escape the fact that Clinton hired Glenn Simpson (Fusion-GPS) and ultimately they created the Dossier.

    The deep swamp establishment in Congress is united to keep their their dirty laundry from being aired in public. The three Congressional investigations underway are going to lead straight to the Clintons and Obama. That is really heavy duty stuff and there is deep concern about upsetting such a high level apple cart.

    Nunes postponed the appearance of DOJ Deputy Bruce Ohr in order to get FISA 702 reauthorized. If the general public knew how FISA 702 was abused by the conspirators, the outcry would prevent the Congress from reauthorizing it.

    The problem is, we absolutely have to have FISA 702, like it or not. It is the world we live in. The Obamanauts used FISA 702 for partisan political advantage against their political opponents. All of the Mueller authorization for investigation of Trump in based on corruption in the use of FISA 702. Now our job is to make certain that the Sunstein philosophy is stomped out and the watchers are dedicated to the letter of the law and will assure that FISA 702 is utilized as intended.

    Comey was too cute by half. He thought he could smooth talk his way into being appreciated for making it up as he went along with protecting Hillary in the investigation of her server and classified information.

    I am not sure I blame him. Had he not short-circuited the indictment, the Hillary campaign would have become a mess and if (when) she lost, Comey would be tarred and feathered for having meddled in the making of the president and the unmaking of the coronation of Hillary.

    Instead, the Democrats decided to bully-beat Trump with their silly Russian dossier and now they are frantically running around trying to stick their fingers in all of the holes in deep swamp, establishment dike. And the mainstream press (not FoxNews) is concentrating on Trump’s mental health, S…holes, golfing habits, calcium build-up, etc. The DemonizingRats are the gang that couldn’t shoot straight and they have mortally wounded themselves.

    Furthermore, the DemonizingRat party has to build up the immigrant voting base and ditch the Electoral College in order to remain viable.

    This is the second Civil War. It does not involve the little people shooting each other. It is the government by and for the little people vs. the absolutism of Cass Sunstein and the communist elites.

    The biggest problem in all of this getting the American people to understand the plot line. One major misunderstanding concerns the FISA court “warrants.” When the FISA Court approves a request, it permits the watchers to call up data already stored. It permits the rules of 702 to “unmask” Americans on American soil who are in the chain of data that is being searched. So, when the Russian Lawyer entered Trump Tower, Trump Tower and all the people caught in the data became potential targets for unmasking.

    Something else that is of note. The Presidential Daily Briefing is the ONLY place where all of the intelligence data is brought together. The CIA data is there along with the FBI data, but the CIA does not know what the FBI data is unless the CIA calls up the FBI data in the CIA special room and vice versa.

    Bush 43 saw his PDB and had copies given to the Veep, the Secretary of Defense and his security advisor. Obama has his PDB distributed to 32 people and perhaps more. Samantha Power was one of those people. We are undoubtedly going to discover that classified information flowed the Nile in Obama government. We the people elected that system. Twice.

    That’s just wrong and on the same level as Ann Coulter attacks. You BEARS/OTTERS may be in the political wilderness, but you are still catty as hell.
