First, some Middle Eastern guy did it to President Bush in 2008. Now, a woman has done it to Hillary:

I’ll say little except to note Hillary’s comment, “That is not the way democracy works” – which is not what I remember lefties saying in 2008.

One reason (of many) to #BanBossy

Remember a couple of years ago, Hillary yukking it up over the death of a foreign head of State? “We came, we saw, he died! (har har)”

Granted that the victim (Libya’s Muammar Gaddafi) was an enemy and dictator who probably deserved it; still, I can’t recall any of Condoleezza Rice, Dick Cheney, or George W. Bush ever showing such ugly pleasure in the death of any other human being.

If I’m mistaken – if there is a comparable example, from one of Bush Cheney Rice – please remind me in the comments.

UPDATE: Garry Kasparov, the anti-Putin dissident and former chess champion, just tweeted another possible reason to #BanBossy:

Hillary was the captain of the Titanic that was US-Russia relations as Secretary of State. Her as admiral of whole fleet makes me nervous!

Not to change the subject, but Kasparov’s new article at Politico reminds us who Putin is.

We Like #BanBossy!

Yes, it’s a bumper sticker!

Mission Impossible: Trying to Make Hillary More Human

Recognizing that Hillary Rodham Clinton possessed all the charm of a canker sore, Clinton White House aides spent countless hours trying to figure out how to make the first lady look more human, and less like a socialist android.

Even in the early days of the Clinton White House, consultants and political advisers were scrambling to soften Hillary Clinton’s hard-edged image, looking for ways to “humanize her” for the press and public.

In the latter years, as the media turned, the advice was far more blunt. “Be real,” media consultant Mandy Grunwald told her in a 1999 memo. Grunwald told the first lady the public tends to see her only in “very stern situations,” and warned her not to let the press see her “uncomfortable or testy.”

The 1999 memo was a particularly frank example of advisers looking to style Clinton for the public. At the time, Grunwald was with the Grunwald Communications firm she founded and was trying to smooth relations between retiring New York Sen. Daniel Patrick Moynihan and Clinton — who would later win Moynihan’s seat. The memo referred to an upcoming “Moynihan event.” Grunwald urged Clinton to stay “conversational” and not raise her voice.

They even tried to push her on the idea of appearing on popular 1990′s sitcom Home Improvement. I can imagine the plot pitch. Tim Taylor bangs one of the interns on Tool Time, and Hillary comes round to tell Jill Taylor, “Hey, what difference does it make now?”

If they wanted to make Hillary look more… warm and human… they should have turned to an expert.

Also, Clinton advisor Sandy Burger (the guy who filched classified documents from the National Archive before they could embarass the Clintons) was apparently miffed that none of the characters on The West Wing was based on him.  Maybe he should have been worried a little more about Osama bin Laden and a little less about TV shows.

The Hillary Files

Recently released documents from the Clinton White House Years (and Governor of Arkansas years) provide insight into the character of the person whom the Democrat Party and their armies of low-information voters are poised to foist onto the United State for four to eight years of “What difference does it make?” A few notable points:

  • Before she blamed the Vast Right Wing Conspiracy for the Monica Lewinsky episode, she blamed herself and Mr. Clinton’s unresolved motherhood issues; apparently Mr. Clinton never felt that mommy loved him enough, and so naturally he had to nail an intern half his age.
  • Mrs. Clinton was very cross at the “whiny women” who were complaining about Senator Bob Packwood’s unwanted sexual advances, because it got in the way of her quest for socialized health care.
  • Mrs. Clinton was really, really obsessed with installing socialized health care.
  • Mrs. Clinton was pretty much holds a grudge against anyone she thinks wronged her, and views politics as a means to enact revenge.

Really makes you look forward to President Inevitability, doesn’t it? But consider the Democrat alternatives… Mr. Andrew Cuomo. Ms. Elizabeth (I can’t call her Fauxcahontas because it would be “uncivil”) Warren, and Mr. Martin O’Malley. There’s no one on the Democrat Bench who isn’t a complete nightmare.

I always thought the left-wing belief that Mr. Clinton respected women to be the height of delusional; now we find out Mrs. Clinton doesn’t much respect women either, except in the progressive sense of Respect for Women = Support for Abortion (and nothing else).

For What It’s Worth, She’s Sorry

Mrs. Clinton announces in a paid forum, responding to a question from a car salesman, with no opportunity for follow-up questions… says that what happened in Benghazi is “her biggest regret.”

When I think about my own regrets, they’re like… not working harder in high school, not going to a different college, not hooking up with the tall redhead senior year. None of my regrets involve leaving four people to die in a terrorist attack and then lying about it.

So, there’s that.

Ever wonder where Mrs. Clinton would be without Mr. Clinton? Obviously, she never would have been a senator or secretary of state without his coat-tails. (Anymore than George W. Bush ever would have president had he not won the genetic Powerball.) Maybe chair of a Womyn’s Studies department somewhere.

The Iron Dingbat and Her Enemies List

Posted by V the K at 10:28 am - January 13, 2014.
Filed under: Hillary Clinton

Hillary and Bill Clinton keep a very extensive and detailed “Enemies List” of their domestic political opponents.

There was a special circle of Clinton hell reserved for people who had endorsed Obama or stayed on the fence after Bill and Hillary had raised money for them, appointed them to a political post, or written a recommendation to ice their kid’s application to an elite school.

On one early draft of the hit list, each Democratic member of Congress was assigned a numerical grade from one to seven, with the most helpful to Hillary earning ones and the most treacherous drawing sevens. The set of sevens included Sens. John Kerry, Jay Rockefeller, Bob Casey, and Patrick Leahy, as well as Reps. Chris Van Hollen, Baron Hill, and Rob Andrews.

Since the Democrats are the party of teenaged girls who grew old before they grew up, it’s not surprising that the Clintons would compile a slam book. Democrats always see their domestic political opposition as “enemies,” but foreign terrorists are just “militants” with legitimate grievances and hostile foreign Governments are fellow global citizens to be provided with appeasement and foreign aid; tells you a lot, doesn’t it?

A rational, intelligent population would never let people like this get anywhere near political power; but a rational, intelligent population wouldn’t have given the job to failed community organizer with a shady background either.

No One Admires the Iron Dingbat

Hillary may be the top choice for President among the low-information “Brawndo’s Got Electrolytes” voters in the USA, but worldwide, she ranks pretty much last.

Hillary Clinton, the former secretary of state who leads all 2016 presidential polls, ranks dead last on a new top 10 poll of who Americans admire most, and at the bottom of who the world admires most, behind celebs like Angelina Jolie and Russian President Vladimir Putin.

Challenge: Name one real Hillary Clinton accomplishment. Don’t tell me she graduated from Yale. Don’t tell me she rode Bill’s coat-tails was elected Senator from New York and Secretary of State. What has she actually accomplished in terms of successful public policy that improved the lives of vast numbers of people?

Not that accomplishment matters to the same Idiocrat voters who, last time around, picked a half-term senator and former part-time community organizer.

… or is Hillary  not looking well?

“Don’t you think she looks tired?”

What difference does it make – that Hillary works for Goldman-Sachs?

In the last week, Hillary made $400,000 from Goldman-Sachs.

I’m not certain that’s money going to her personally, but it seems likely. It would be interesting to see what she takes in campaign contributions also.

Goldman-Sachs is a top political donor. Although they favored Romney in 2012, they favored President Obama even more in 2008. And they were rewarded hugely when Obama sealed the bailouts that President Bush began; not just the money funneled to Goldman via the AIG – TARP bailouts, but also the Dodd-Frank bill that guarantees Goldman future bailouts, the Federal Reserve’s general money-printing, etc.

Goldman is also the single largest backer of Sen. Chuck Schumer (D). The corrupt Jon Corzine (D) was a former top Goldman employee, as was Bush’s Treasury secretary (Hank Paulsen).

So these guys get their way with both parties, and internationally to boot. They are near the heart of the Big Government – Big Banking nexus (that isn’t capitalism).

The Left’s hair-trigger praise of…itself

First there were the Nobel Peace Prizes for Al Gore – who had only spread a hoax, a junk science – and for President Obama – before he’d done anything peaceful or otherwise, like (say) attacking Libya or Syria.

Now (via reader Peter Hughes) there is Hillary Clinton’s Elton John Foundation award for her support of gay rights…even though she opposed gay marriage as recently as March 2013, AND left the Middle East a mess where anti-gay forces are on the march.

If these people ever taught at universities, they’d give themselves all A’s, just for showing up. Oh, yeah.

Scandal central? Or a whole lot of talk that will amount to nothing?

As the scandals engulfing the Obama Administration have proliferated and “gotten legs” this week, many of the conservatives I know or whom I hear on the radio have started drawing comparisons with what happened under Nixon, bringing up the word “impeachment,” and hoping that as  it becomes evident that these activities were not accidents but part of a coordinated strategy, Obama will eventually resign, or at least some of those who hold key posts of power in this administration–such as Eric Holder–will resign and that the Administration will be hopelessly tainted as the truth becomes known.

I hear that talk, and I think, it would be nice, but I can’t see it happening.  Maybe Holder will resign.  Maybe.

I can imagine the press starting to subject the Obama Administration to a little more scrutiny in the future, but “a little more” than none is still only a little bit of scrutiny, hardly enough to make a significant difference in public opinion.  While the outrage surrounding all of this may be enough for the Republicans to hold the House and to gain control in the Senate in 2014, there will still be formidable problems, and we’ll still have a very divided country.  The low-information voters in the electorate will still be willing to give Obama the benefit of the doubt because most of them are either unwilling to see him for the cynical, partisan character he is, or they are unable to do so.

It is possible that after a year or two of scandals and after the outrage that is sure to follow the full implementation of Obamacare, Obama will end his second term with even lower approval ratings than George W. Bush ended his, but at this point, I think that’s about the most we can hope for, that, and maybe Holder’s resignation.  I’m not even sure any of this will derail the immigration bill, which is looking more and more like the next legislative disaster coming down the pike.

I’m not trying to be pessimistic, merely practical.  In the lead-up to the election in November, I knew that what happened  with the administration’s lies about Benghazi was an outrage, but after the election, it seemed evident to me that Obama, Hillary, and the entire administration were going to get away without any consequences.  The American voters had failed to demand answers and accountability and had just re-elected Obama.

Now that the scandals are starting to illustrate the kinds of things conservatives have been saying about Obama for years and years now, some liberals are upset with Obama, but others are busy trying to find more ways to blame conservatives for making an issue of the problems.   In one of the most ironic defenses of Obama I have encountered so far, David Axelrod offered the “incompetence” excuse, namely, that the government is just too big for Obama to really know what’s going on, an excuse we are sure to hear echoed in the days ahead.  Forgive me if I can’t forget that in November the American electorate rejected a man who was renowned for his management skills and his ability to lead large organizations successfully, all so they could re-elect the “community organizer.”

So what do our readers think?  Am I just being pessimistic about all this?  Is the investigation of these scandals likely to have real and significant consequences for our government, or are they a lot of talk that will amount to nothing, or at least nothing much?

Secretary of State in Drag

Did John Kerry really say “I have some big heels to fill?”  Yes, yes he did.  (H/T Michelle Malkin)

YouTube Preview Image

Maybe he didn’t want to make any jokes about pantsuits.  As if the thought of John Kerry playing the part of Secretary of State weren’t bad enough, now we’ve got to imagine Kerry playing the part of Secretary of State in drag.  In all truth, though, by using this sort of humor to introduce himself, he only reminds many of us (especially those of us who didn’t vote for him in 2004) about this photo.

The administration has hit the “reset button” with the State Department once again, and somehow I don’t expect the second go-around will be any better than the first.

Meanwhile, here at home, the “Department of Homeland Security” (in quotes because I can’t imagine it being any more ironically named at this point) is advising people faced with “an active shooter situation” to “huddle like sheep and die,” in the words of William A. Levinson at American Thinker.  Levinson writes:

The bottom line is that the Obama administration, of which DHS is a part, has published a training video whose guidance can easily kill anybody who relies on it.  These are the same people who want to tell us what kind of firearms are “reasonable” for us to own for self-defense.  FrontSight, by the way, posted an interview with a senior citizen who needed 11 rounds of 40 caliber — that’s one more than Dianne Feinstein and four more than Andrew Cuomo thinks he needed — to stop two armed home invaders
If huddling like a sheep doesn’t work, then DHS advises the use of improvised weapons like scissors.

And if scissors don’t work, I’m sure you can use things like tacks and glue on the floor, since those kinds of techniques worked so well in Home Alone.

Karl Marx wrote that “History repeats itself, first as tragedy, then as farce.”  With events like the ones described above, it’s hard not to view these first few weeks of Obama’s second term as a farce, but I’m certainly not laughing.

The Hillary Shuffle

Benghazi: A Reminder

Look what else is hanging out in the Weiners’ closet…

Alright, so it’s well-known (and almost excusable with today’s short-attention-span public) that sex sells. That explains why the at-first reluctant former mainstream media went wall-to-wall with coverage of soon-to-be (but not soon enough) former New York Congressman Anthony Weiner’s naughtiness. (Of course, their initial reluctance is no question due to the “D” he wears on the right side of his title.) That Weiner was one of the nastiest, most partisan, and rhetorically ugly members of the once-vaunted assembly was of no interest to the press. That his support for policies that have been an albatross around America’s neck also rose no brows. What they wanted were those pics (once Andrew Breitbart forced their hands with undeniable photographic evidence that they were never going to seek out themselves) and a salacious headline (one preferably that included a grade-school-era pun, if possible, please).

The next thing the press darlings love is a human-interest story. Forget the details of a crime. Forget any sort of ongoing work of the authorities to capture a criminal. Certainly forget any sort of racial description of an alleged perpetrator. But if something’s gone down in the big city, you can count on the locals (and if it’s dramatic enough, the Big Three) to cover the angle of the family that’s been affected or the children left orphaned.

So we were introduced over and over to the dutiful wife, Huma Abedin—currently with child. Naturally the angle of her working for the oft-humiliated wife of the former president and current Secretary of State, Hillary Clinton, was played, often with a sly wink. Much was made about the likelihood of the two conferring over how to best deal with the situation, both in public and in private. In fact, it wasn’t until Mrs. Weiner returned from her overseas trip with the Secretary (on which she’d been when the whole escapade broke) that the Congressman finally decided to fold up his tent and go home. There was even the irony of Bill Clinton having officiated at their wedding. (Is he a rabbi now? Talk about a comeback!)

In all that, though; in all the delving into this couple’s details and discussing ad nauseam about what’s next for them… no interest from those stalwarts for the Public’s Right To Know about this little tidbit:

It turns out that Huma Abedin may have very close links to a little terrorist organization known as the Muslim Brotherhood.

Al-Liwa Al-Arabi (translated here) claims to have leaked an extensive list of members of the Brotherhood’s secret women’s division, which is known alternately as the Muslim Sisterhood or the International Women’s Organization (IWO). This detailed list was partially published by Al Jazeera and several other major Arab newspapers. And it included Huma’s mother, Saleha Abedin.

Apparently her brother is also closely tied with the Brotherhood.

Sarah & Hillary: Most Admired Women in USA

Despite the vicious attacks on both women by the Obama cult last year… Palin & Clinton are most admired women in American this year.

According to a new survey just released by USA Today and the Gallup Poll, the 62-year-old Clinton barely beat out the 45-year-old Palin as the most admired female — 16% to 15% in a poll of 1,025 adult Americans.

However, because the poll has a margin of error of plus or minus 4 percentage points, it’s statistically a P-C draw. The survey was open-ended, meaning men and women respondents had to provide the names by themselves.

Not that public admiration necessarily translates to votes. But the results have to set off any political spectator’s eager imagination about a future presidential ballot match-up between the pair who, though politically polar opposites, are both outspoken, both often underestimated and both beloved by their respective bases.

Palin beat out Oprah and Michelle Obama.

Verrrry interesting…
