Russia meddled in US elections just as Clinton backed one Russian leader

Not done with trolling the US through Russia Today, the allegation is that Vladimir Putin meddled in the 2016 US election, chiefly backing Donald Trump in his against-the-odds victory over the pre-ordained Hillary Clinton. This week 13 Russians have been criminally charged with interfering in the 2016 US election. Also implicated is so-called “troll farm” the Internet Research Agency. A 37-page indictment alleges Russians were “supporting the presidential campaign of then-candidate Donald J Trump … and disparaging Hillary Clinton”.

Foreign entities interfering in US elections is wrong. Barack Obama would never do that.

 

 

And neither would a Clinton:

VANCOUVER, British Columbia, April 3— As President Clinton and President Boris N. Yeltsin of Russia began their first summit meeting today, Mr. Clinton presented the Russian leader with some $1 billion in American aid programs intended to support Russian democrats and spur the Western allies to make Russian reform their top foreign policy priority.

Among the new or expanded programs in the package were loan guarantees to build apartments for demobilized Russian soldiers; loans for Russian entrepreneurs; medical supplies, food and grain assistance; funds to help the Russian Government sell state-owned industries, and technical advisers to help repair pipelines and oil wells and begin exporting again.

Mr. Clinton said the package was intended to help promote free-market skills on a grass-roots level in both Moscow and the Russian countryside, so the movement toward democratic reform would continue no matter who governs in the Kremlin.

Is it only criminal when we don’t like the outcome? Is democracy being damaged by Russian oligarchs or helped by foreign billionaires? Do we only like the obscenely wealthy foreigners meddling with democracy when they’re on our side?

Hillary Clinton throws Harvey Weinstein under the bus (with all of Bill’s women)

Did you roll your eyes and let you mouth fall agape when Hillary Clinton told Andrew Marr about Harvey Weinstein, the Hollywood mogul accused of rape? There’s delusional and there’s Hillary Clinton levels of delusional:

“I was really shocked and appalled because I’ve known him through politics as many Democrats have. He’s been a supporter – he’s been a funder for all of us, for Obama, for me, for people who have run for office in the United States.  So it was just disgusting and the stories that have come out are heartbreaking. And I really commend the women who have been willing to step forward now and tell their stories.”

This is same Hillary Clinton who allegedly vowed to “destroy” women who accused her husband, Bill Clinton, of sexual harassment – who, according to the New York Times, was part of a devious campaign to see one of Bill’s ‘victims’ branded a “bimbo” and a “pathological liar”. Does Bill get a pass when we talk of sexual predators? Is Hillary so delusional – so iconic – all talk of her being her husband’s enabler is taboo?

She goes on to tell Marr:

“But I think that it’s important that we not just focus on him and whatever consequences flow from these stories about his behavior but that we recognize this kind of behavior cannot be tolerated anywhere, whether it’s in entertainment, politics. After all, we have someone admitting to being a sexual assaulter in the Oval Office. There has to be a recognition that we must stand against this kind of action that is so sexist and misogynistic.”

No. Donald Trump has never admitted to being a sexual assaulter.

She then encourages comparrisons between Trump and Weinstein.

“I’m not a psychologist, I can’t draw that conclusion. There are credible reports from women about both that sound very similar.”

Trump’s “pussy” comment was nasty. He has questionable views on women. But he has not been accused of rape. You know who has? Yep, Harvey Weinstein and…Bill Clinton.

Get a load of this exchange:

MARR: “And this depends on women coming forward and the courage to come forward. And yet in your book the three women, brought onto the stage by Trump, attacking your husband and you kind of dismissed them. Was that the right thing to do, are you sure about that?”

CLINTON: “Well, yes, because that had all been litigated. That was the subject of a huge investigation as you might recall in the late ’90s and there were conclusions drawn and that was clearly in the past.”

But the past cannot be so easily boxed up:

“I was 35 years old when Bill Clinton, Ark. Attorney General raped me and Hillary tried to silence me,” Juanita Broaddrick tweeted from her home in Van Buren, Ark. “I am now 73. . . . it never goes away.”

Harvey Weinstein deserves a fair trial. Hillary Clinton deserves to have her record looked at. Justice must not be denied.

After Libya Hillary Clinton still knows nothing about guns

After the horror in Las Vegas, Hillary Clinton seized the chance to promote herself and her policies:

Others believed Monday was precisely the correct time to start the conversation. Mr Trump’s challenger in the 2016 election, Hillary Clinton, said it was essential that America confronted the NRA and demanded the regulation of weapons. “The crowd fled at the sound of gunshots,” she wrote on Twitter. “Imagine the deaths if the shooter had a silencer, which the NRA wants to make easier to get.”

They thought the crackling sound was fireworks, Hillary. And a silencer at that range, would still be loud.

After Libya, the idea that gung-ho Hillary Clinton doesn’t like guns is absurd.

The WAPo has more:

The effect of having a silencer probably would have been negligible. Clinton and others appear to be assuming that silencers — or “suppressors,” as they’re known in the industry — work the way that they do in the movies. Screw a little barrel on the end of your pistol, and you can run through enemy headquarters picking off bad guys with no more audio footprint than a little zip.

In reality, trying to suppress an automatic weapon sounds like this.

Fake News: Bosnia attack survivor Chelsea Clinton recalls the Bowling Green Massacre

Compare and contrast the following news about the Bowling Green Massacre and Hillary Clinton landing under enemy fire in Bosnia. Fake news is big news right now.

Sat at the top of the new cycle is the idea that pimply Putin supporters pumped out fake news stories which swung the election for Donald Trump. Amid reports that the great unwashed don’t trust journalists is news that fake stories were taken as fact and influenced people to vote for Trump over Hillary Clinton.

These people have trouble separating fact from fiction. It’s these slack-jawed people for whom health warnings appear at the end of soap opera.

A few years ago I was invited to talk on a BBC radio show about a story on British soap opera Coronation Street. A fictional child had gone missing. Fictional police and fictional people – actors repeating the words penned by scriptwriters working to replicate slice-of-life stuff to the fourth wall – were frantic with worry. The show ended by assuring viewers that everything they had seen was not real. Similarities to actual events were coincidental. If they had been affected by the heartbreaking story, they should call a number, where they would be given assistance but sadly not advised to stop watching the magic box, get a grip, get out more and get your head tested.

Such warnings suggests broadcasters have a pretty low opinion of their viewers.

 

 

Post-Trust.

A British poll in late 2016 found that 25% of those polled said they trusted journalists. Oddly, journalism is much more widely trusted – up to 65% – when the report is read aloud by a TV newsreader.

Politicians are trusted by just 21% of the people.

The assumption is that the people who fall for fake news – the stupid and gullible who read only one news source and don’t talk to people in the street (68% trust rating); who think Dallas was a documentary and Picasso a martial artist – are Trump voters. Clinton supporters, so goes the theory, are too knowing to be so easily duped.

 

Bosnia, 1996.

Hillary Clinton is on a visit to the war-town country. She tells media in 2008:

“I remember landing under sniper fire. There was supposed to be some kind of a greeting ceremony at the airport, but instead, we just ran with our heads down to get into the vehicles to get to our base.”

Utter balls. Hilary and her daughter Chelsea Clinton landed at Tuzla Air Base. Local and dignitaries met the Clintons at the airport. They gave them flowers, a poetry reading and at least one hug from a well-placed photogenic child.

In The Des Moines Register, said Hillary:

“We landed in one of those corkscrew landings and ran out because they said there might be sniper fire. I don’t remember anyone offering me tea on the tarmac there.”

Called out on her balls, Clinton spokesman Howard Wolfson told reporters in 2008:

“The facts are clear from contemporaneous news accounts that she was entering a potentially dangerous situation… is it possible that in the most recent instance in which she discussed this that she misspoke, with regards to the exit from the plane…”

Not a lie. Not fake news. A misspoke.

 

Bowling Green Massacre. 

President Trump advisor Kellyanne Conway tells media:

“I bet it’s brand-new information to people that President Obama had a six-month ban on the Iraqi refugee program after two Iraqis came here to this country, were radicalized, and were the masterminds behind the Bowling Green Massacre. Most people don’t know that because it didn’t get covered.”

There was no Bowling Green Massacre.

Conway says she misspoke. She meant to say ‘Bowling Green terrorists’.

In 2013, the Justice Department announced the sentencing of two Iraqi citizens living in Bowling Green, Kentucky, to federal prison after they confessed to attacking U.S. soldiers in Iraq and tried to assist al-Qaeda in Iraq by sending money and weapons.

Massacre. Nothing like it. Utter balls. A lie? No. A misspoke.

 

Cue Sniper survivor Chelsea Clinton.

 

Chelsea clinton fake

 

Fake news is a big issue. But it’s nothing new. Why is one news item leading the TV news? Why does Israel and not Brazil or Pakistan top the BBC’s news show? Newspapers appeal to their readers’ prejudices. Bias is all around.

Facts can be checked. Claims can be disproven. You can read more than one newspaper or online report and watch more than one TV show.

So what changed?

Whereas once journalists were expected to be objective, they now emote, signalling their opinion and taking sides. The journalist’s report becomes just another opinion. It is no more valid – no truer – than any other opinion. Trust has been eroded by a desire to show all sides of an argument; to present the ‘facts’ from all angles; to be seen as impartial and in search of not one truth but of multiple talking points; to show views over verifiable fact.

If there’s no truth, all we get is fake. Hillary, Trump and Putin didn’t invent and encourage fake news. The mainstream media did.

How the deplorables broke Hillary Clinton and the Left’s glass ceiling

Big media cheered for Hillary Clinton. Then Donald Trump won. The blinkered, biased and monocular media missed the story. Unable to examine, understand and sympathise with Trump voters, they echoed Hillary’s description of them as “deplorables”. White working class Americans were just another problematic special group in a top-down, divisive, barrier-building, illiberal, condescending narrative guffed out by a coterie of know-alls under whose wings these lesser people – Latinos, blacks, gays, Muslims and women – could be protected, cosseted and above all kept in their place. Hillary wanted to smashed a glass ceiling. She represented an elite that doesn’t allow the great unwashed to see that high.

Every American makes the same pledge of allegiance. There are no caveats for every focus group and – dread word – community? You get one vote each.

Today the Guardian faced the facts. Democracy won the day. Trump – that terrifying and marvellous orange lunk-  will be President Trump:

The polls were wrong. And because we are obsessed with predicting opinions rather than listening to them, we didn’t see it coming.president will be Donald Trump.

Salon notes:

President Trump: A colossal failure for democracy, and our terrifying new reality

No. Still not getting it. Democracy won.

Simon Maloy laments the millions and millions and millions of idiots that failed to, well, agree with him:

…all the democratic institutions that are supposed to prevent something like this from happening, or at least warn us about it. Donald Trump, a candidate who ran an openly racist campaign, who is as proud a misogynist as you’ll find anywhere, who is manifestly ignorant of public policy, who is brusquely authoritarian, who has little respect or understanding of democratic norms, and who embodies every moral failing that’s supposed to disqualify a candidate from higher office, has apparently been elected the next president of the United States.

The markets are collapsing, the globe is reeling, and nobody can quite explain what the hell happened. But here’s what this failure will mean. The climate, which is warming precipitously, is now guaranteed to continue along that trajectory toward global catastrophe.

“Why America failed,” says Think Progress. 

The only comfort anyone can feel tonight is that the human brain lacks the capacity to process true enormity. We will not understand what this election means.

And back in the Guardian:

 

Trump Guardian

 

The above gem is via Brendan O’Neill, who notes:

From the Guardian. The poor lambs of the liberal elite feel hated. Well, now they know how millions of Americans felt for decades when they were written off as dumb, backward, lizard-brained rednecks and cretins and made into the butt of every East Coast comics’ joke and the target of every decent politicians’ sneer. Sow hatred, get hatred.

You laughing yet? How about now?

Clinton Foundation

 

Joel Kotkin:

America is a nation of many economies, but those that produce real, tangible things — food, fiber, energy and manufactured goods — went overwhelmingly for Trump. He won virtually every state from Appalachia to the Rockies, with the exceptions of heavily Hispanic Colorado, Nevada and New Mexico, and President Obama’s home base of Illinois.

Some of his biggest margins were in energy states — Texas, Oklahoma, West Virginia, Wyoming, North Dakota — where the fracking revolution created a burst of prosperity. . . .

Class has been a bigger factor in this election than in any election since the New Deal era. Trump’s insurgency rode largely on middle- and working-class fears about globalization, immigration and the cultural arrogance of the “progressive” cultural elite. This is something Bill Clinton understands better than his wife.

Trump owes his election to what one writer has called “the leftover people.” These may be “deplorables” to the pundits but their grievances are real – their incomes and their lifespans have been decreasing. They have noticed, as Thomas Frank has written, that the Democrats have gone “from being the party of Decatur to the party of Martha’s Vineyard.”

Many of these voters were once Democrats, and feel they have been betrayed.

The voters were looked down on. You do that for long enough, and the people look elsewhere for some of that change and hope.

Oh, and get this: the new President’s wife, well, she’s an immigrant! Spin your head on that.

Make Your Own ‘Mazel Tov Cocktails’ With Scottie Nell Hughes

Scottie Nell Hughes was talking to CNN about Hillary Clinton’s props Jay Z and Beyoncé. She made a reference to Jay Z and Kanye West’s 2012 video for “No Church in the Wild. It features a ‘Mazel Tov’ cocktail.

No. Not a Molotov cocktail. Hughes spotted a “mazel tov cocktail”.

Hughes went on Twitter, “trust me.. I realized at that moment, I should have taken a nap at some point the last 24hrs.”

So how do you make a Mazel Tov cocktail? Like this:

Buying the FBI: Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump vie for influence

The wife of the Deputy Director of the FBI got a wad of campaign donations from Terry McAuliffe, a Clinton ally.

The Wall Street Journal reported last week that Mr. McCabe’s wife, Jill McCabe, received $467,500 in campaign funds in late 2015 from the political-action committee of Virginia Gov. Terry McAuliffe, a longtime ally of the Clintons and, until he was elected governor in November 2013, a Clinton Foundation board member.

Very generous.

In other FBI news:

The embattled director of the FBI has been accused of covering up evidence of Donald Trump’s links to Russia while inflicting severe damage on Hillary Clinton, as Democrats hit back in a growing scandal involving her email server.

Having links to Russia is a crime?

Harry Reid, the Democrat leader of the Senate, accused James Comey of “a disturbing double standard” and, in a remarkably forthright letter, said he regretted supporting a man who he once believed was “a principled public servant.”

And Comey?

Former Attorney General Michael Mukasey and several conservative attorneys and legal scholars held a private forum last month in which they harshly criticized FBI Director James Comey’s handling of the Hillary Clinton email investigation just eight days before Comey sent a letter to Congress announcing his bombshell decision to review new emails in the probe. The event, billed as a discussion on “The Law after Comey’s decision,” featured several speakers including Mukasey, who served in the George W. Bush administration, hammering Comey over the legal precedent he set in concluding the email probe three months ago without charging Clinton with a crime.

Why now? What did he find?

Well:

FBI Director James Comey stressed in his letter to Congress Friday that investigators don’t know how significant the new emails may be. But even if they don’t implicate the Democratic presidential nominee, their mere existence could call into question testimony Abedin gave months ago about the email system.

FBI records reflect that she told investigators “that she lost most of her old emails as a result of the transition.”

During a June 28, 2016 deposition with the conservative Judicial Watch, Abedin also swore she looked for and turned over all devices she thought contained government work to the State Department.

“I looked for all the devices that may have any of my State Department work on it and returned – returned – gave them to my attorneys for them to review for all relevant documents,” Abedin said. “And gave them devices and paper.”

Why would she have 600,000 emails on a compute she shared with her dick pics husband?

Thomas Frank:

They are the comfortable and well-educated mainstay of our modern Democratic party. They are also the grandees of our national media; the architects of our software; the designers of our streets; the high officials of our banking system; the authors of just about every plan to fix social security or fine-tune the Middle East with precision droning. They are, they think, not a class at all but rather the enlightened ones, the people who must be answered to but who need never explain themselves.

Let us turn the magnifying glass on them for a change, by sorting through the hacked personal emails of John Podesta, who has been a Washington power broker for decades….

I think the WikiLeaks releases furnish us with an opportunity to observe the upper reaches of the American status hierarchy in all its righteousness and majesty.

One week to go. Hillary or Donald?

When Hillary Clinton spread ‘negative’ news about Obama being a Muslim

Hillary Clinton has to do nothing to win the US Presidential race to the bottom. The media are obsessed with reality TV creation Donald Trump and accusations that he molested women. But what about those leaked emails, the ones WikiLeaks has published about Clinton?

First a few words about the sex. Jonah Goldberg is impressed by the double standards: “I honestly can’t get my head around the fact that Hillary Clinton’s closing ‘argument’ in this election is sexual harassment. Bill Clinton’s lifelong enabler has managed to turn this topic into a deadly weapon against a Republican nominee. This is like Godzilla turning public safety into a winning issue in the Tokyo mayoral race.”

And now for those emails on Hillary’s secret server that got wiped – whoops!

Kimberley Strassel writes in the Wall Street Journal:

Start with a June 2015 email to Clinton staffers from Erika Rottenberg, the former general counsel of LinkedIn. Ms. Rottenberg wrote that none of the attorneys in her circle of friends “can understand how it was viewed as ok/secure/appropriate to use a private server for secure documents AND why further Hillary took it upon herself to review them and delete documents.” She added: “It smacks of acting above the law and it smacks of the type of thing I’ve either gotten discovery sanctions for, fired people for, etc.”

Clinton staffers debated how to evade a congressional subpoena of Mrs. Clinton’s emails—three weeks before a technician deleted them. The campaign later employed a focus group to see if it could fool Americans into thinking the email scandal was part of the Benghazi investigation (they are separate) and lay it all off as a Republican plot.

…Worse, Mrs. Clinton’s State Department, as documents obtained under the Freedom of Information Act show, took special care of donors to the Clinton Foundation. In a series of 2010 emails, a senior aide to Mrs. Clinton asked a foundation official to let her know which groups offering assistance with the Haitian earthquake relief were “FOB” (Friends of Bill) or “WJC VIPs” (William Jefferson Clinton VIPs). Those who made the cut appear to have been teed up for contracts. Those who weren’t? Routed to a standard government website.

But the big bangs are to do with Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama. In 2008 Hillary was vying with Obama to be the Democrat Party’s presidential nominee. Her team produced a list of “negatives” to attack her rival.

One of these “negatives” as  to accuse Obama of being a Muslim.

CNN explains it away:

According to Tom Matzzie and Paul Begala, two Democratic consultants advising the 2008 polling effort by Progressive Media USA, it was simply an effort to test Obama’s vulnerabilities in a potential general election against John McCain.

Begala and Matzzie told CNN that the group also tested arguments against Clinton, a claim that is backed up by a separate hacked email available on WikiLeaks as Document ID 2187.

“This is Campaigning 101,” said Matzzie, an Obama supporter in 2008 who was the president and executive director of Progressive Media USA. “You test the vulnerabilities of your candidate — something (Republicans) should have done for Donald Trump.”

But Obama and Clinton were rivals, right?

And in another leak, Hillary apparently said:

The main reason behind successful immigration should be painfully obvious to even the most dimwitted of observers: Some groups of people are almost always highly successful given only half a chance (Jews*, Hindus/Sikhs and Chinese people, for example), while others (Muslims, blacks** and Roma***, for instance) fare badly almost irrespective of circumstances.

 

What did Hillary Clinton say at the last debate? Oh, yes: “They they go low, you go high.” But not as high as Obama, allegedly.

Donald Trump branded a peado pervert, Bill Clinton a ‘rapist’ and Hillary an immigrant deporting divider

Donald Trump is mired in sex stories.The Telegraph says Trump is the subject for “sexual assault allegations”. These are “claims made by women against the Republican presidential nominee”.

Trump has not been accused of rape. Others have been  such as Bill Clinton, aka Mr Hillary Clinton.

Roll up voters and tell the world which sexist old man do you dislike the most.

The latest accusation levelled at Trump appears in the The New York TimesJessica Leeds alleged on camera thatMr Trump “grabbed her breasts and tried to put his hand up her skirt in the first class cabin on a flight to New York in or around 1980”. Rachel Crooks alleges Trump “kissed me directly on the mouth” in 2005 outside the elevator in Trump Tower in Manhattan. “I was so upset that he thought I was so insignificant that he could do that,” she says.

The New York Daily News adds that Trump the “perv” “had eyes for a 10 year old girl”.

 

trump child

 

Trump is a peado?

Donald Trump, exposed Wednesday as an alleged serial groper, once said he’d spotted his future girlfriend on an escalator — when she was only 10.

He was older:

The would-be sexist-in-chief made the stomach-turning joke in 1992 when “Entertainment Tonight” taped a Christmas special in Trump Tower. Trump, then 46, makes a brief appearance and asks a group of 10-year-old girls if they’re going to take the escalator, according to the footage, reported by CBS News Wednesday. One girl pipes up with a happy “Yes!”

“I’m going to be dating her in 10 years,” Trump leers. “Can you believe it?”

Leers. Or jokes?

Is any of this stuff going to make his supporters think again about giving Trump their vote?

Thomas Sowell writes in the National Review:

Donald Trump’s gutter talk about women shows yet again that he is bad news. The problem is that Hillary Clinton is far worse. Trump’s talk is indefensible. But Hillary Clinton’s actions as secretary of state, carrying out the Obama administration’s foreign policies, have cost many lives in many places, including the American ambassador and others killed in Benghazi.

Is this Trump stuff – emerging at the 11th hour – a good way to bury bad news about Hillary’s missing emails and her record?

Women have a right to be offended by Trump’s words. But women have suffered a far worse fate from Secretary Clinton’s and President Obama’s actions. Pulling American troops out of Iraq, despite military advice to the contrary, led to the sudden rise of ISIS and their seizing of many women and young girls as sex slaves.

A message from one of these women urged the bombing of ISIS. She said she would rather be dead than live the life of a sex slave. Some women who tried to commit suicide and failed have been tortured for trying…

Make no mistake about it. Neither party has a good candidate for president. The choice is between bad and disastrous.

Green Party’s Jill Stein is no fan of Hillary:

And the scary things, the horrific things that Donald Trump says, Hillary Clinton has already done. Whether it’s massively deporting immigrants, whether it’s threatening nuclear warfare. …

Put it this way: I will feel horrible if Donald Trump is elected, I will feel horrible if Hillary Clinton is elected, and I feel most horrible about a voting system that says: Here are two deadly choices, now pick your weapon of self-destruction.

And the Clinton sex scandals?

Cellphone toting protesters with handmade T-shirts scrawled with “Bill Clinton is a rapist” interrupted President Obama mid-joke in Charlotte on Tuesday.

“Oh, no,” he let out, grinning and chuckling as the crowd booed and the protesters were let out. The chants started “Hillary! Hillary! Hillary!”

He said, “You know, this is the great thing about politics in America. It takes all kinds. Folks will just do . . .”

“Anything” the riled up crowed screamed back.

“Do all kinds of stuff,” Obama finished. “Now where was I?”

Wobbling:

Bill Clinton “rape” protesters were pushed and shoved during two Florida rallies on Tuesday.

Clinton was speaking in Fort Myers, Florida Tuesday afternoon when a man wearing a “Hillary for Prison” t-shirt began shouting “rapist” as Clinton was talking.

America – how did you get to this? How weak can this election get? Policies are rarely mentioned. Clinton says she goes high when Trump goes low. Oh, puh-lease. She has focused on Trump’s behaviour and character. She wants us to believe all the accusations made against boorish Trump – but when they were made against her husband she smeared the accuser. Hillary does not go high. Hillary says millions of Americans are “deplorable” and “irredeemable”.

It’s hard to know which of Trump or Clinton is least likeable and shames America most.

Over to you…

Hillary Clinton and Heather Samuelson give WikiLeaks emails a delicious stink

We’re still all waiting for the anything in Hillary Clinton’s hacked emails – released by WikiLeaks  – to besmirch her reputation for being economical with the actualité (surely ‘a titan of truth’ – ed) . Of course, thousands of Clinton’s emails handled by a private server she maintained while in the top tiers of government were acciedntally destroyed. But something is seeping out. ZeroHedge says the State Department and the Clinton Campaign might be tighter than Vladimir Putin’s forehead:

Now, courtesy of the latest leak by Wikileaks, which earlier today released another 2,000 emails by Clinton campaign chairman, John Podesta, we may have stumbled on evidence of collusion between the State Department and the Clinton Campaign itself. In an email from close Hillary’s confidant Heather Samuelson, also known as “the Clinton insider who screened Hillary’s emails”, we learn the intimate details leaked by Samuelson regarding a FOIA request submitted previously by Judicial Watch regarding Bill Clinton speeches, which shows that virtually entire process was being “translated” over to Hillary’s campaign.

Who is Heather Samuelson? Politico noted on September 2015:

Hillary Clinton chose a former campaign staffer who followed her to the State Department to make the initial determination about which of her emails should be preserved as federal records, according to closed-door testimony by Clinton’s former chief of staff Cheryl Mills, a GOP source told POLITICO.

Why not preserve all of them?

Heather Samuelson, a lawyer and 2008 Clinton campaign staffer, worked under Mills and Clinton’s attorney David Kendall to sift through her ex-boss’ messages. She helped separate those that were purely personal, which were not turned over to the State Department, from those that were work-related.

The Daily Caller adds:

Most importantly, as we reported previously, Samuelson received DOJ immunity in exchange for turning over the laptop she used during the review of Clinton’s emails in 2014.

Here’s a question for Britons who want to abolish the monarchy: Trump or Clinton? And after them you most likely get their kids.

NBC endorsed pussy grabber Trump, Clinton’s sniper and Obama’s aide ‘groped’ Hillary

We know all about Donald Trump and TV host Billy Bush sharing a “locked-room” chat during which the tsunami-haired bricks-and-golf tycoon advised randy males to “Grab her by the pussy“? But why are we hearing about this now?

Is Trump’s exposure linked to media bias? Rupert Murdoch’s Heat Street says NBC is part of the problem:

More to the point, why hasn’t all this terrible audio already surfaced? At any point in the last year, when there was still time to deprive Trump of the GOP nomination, did NBC brass ask Apprentice producer (and Trump friend) Mark Burnett for a look into his archives? Or were they complicit in allowing Trump to cruise to the GOP nomination when they knew there was likely evidence in Mark Burnett’s basement that could disqualify him?

Reality TV is a cut and paste job. The amount of stuff edited out would fill a silo. But is it right to blame the messenger? The Mail has been blaming the victim.

There are clear lines of accountability here – to NBC News Chairman Andy Lack and NBCU CEO Steve Burke. Did these executives just look the other way for many months while a former employee whose bad behavior was well-known got closer and closer to the White House? And did they place the career of Billy Bush – reportedly being groomed to replace Matt Lauer on the hugely profitable Today program – ahead of the US presidency? That sounds absurd, but this is the twisted world of network television and NBC has some explaining to do.

Billy Bush comes across as a pathetic wingman to the class pratt Trump. But why can’t it be that NBSC are just a bit rubbish.

 

favreau-obama-clinton

The Guardian 2008: “Another casualty of the internet age: Obama’s speechwriter is caught in a compromising position with a cardboard Hillary.”

 

NBC Nighty News host Brian Williams “misremembered” being aboard a helicopter hit and downed by two rockets and small arms fire fire during the invasion of Iraq in 2003. Williams had been on a different Chinook. “I would not have chosen to make this mistake,” Williams said. “I don’t know what screwed up in my mind that caused me to conflate one aircraft with another.”

People at NBC are fallible. People make mistakes in wartime.

 

 

So NBC?

 

TRump pussy grab

 

Glenn Reynolds adds:

HE WAS A DEMOCRAT WHEN HE MADE THOSE REMARKS, SO IT WAS OKAY. IT’S ONLY WHEN HE SWITCHED PARTIES AND BECAME GOP NOMINEE THAT THE REMARKS TURNED DISGRACEFUL.

Back then he wasn’t in or standing for public office.

‘Grab them by the pussy’: WikiLeaks, Hillary Clinton’s potential cover up and Trump’s Tic Tacs for sex

WikiLeaks has released bits of speeches Hillary Clinton gave in the years before her 2016 presidential campaign. It was a lucrative tour. Private audiences paid her “at least $26.1 million in speaking fees”.

We get to see the speeches because versions of them appeared in emails now hacked, such as an account operated by Campaign Chairman John Podesta.

We love a cover up. But if we don’t find any juice, then so what? Aren’t private emails part of everyday conversations – some things we say are good and others less so. Do emails give us the full context?

Meanwhile Clinton’s rival Donald Trumps is in the mire over his attitudes to women, what the BBC calls “obscene remarks on women”.

In the video, posted by the Washington Post, Mr Trump is heard bragging to TV host Billy Bush about trying to have sex with a married woman as well as kissing and groping others.

A clip was part of unaired footage for an Access Hollywood segment ahead of Mr Trump’s appearance on the soap opera Days of Our Lives.

Said Trump:

“I moved on her and I failed. I’ll admit it. She was married. And I moved on her very heavily. I moved on her like a bitch, but I couldn’t get there. And she was married. Then all of a sudden I see her, she’s now got the big phoney tits and everything. She’s totally changed her look.”

He then says when he sees a pretty woman he hones in.

Bush notes actress Arianne Zucker, who’s waiting for Trump outside the bus. “Your girl’s hot as s***, in the purple,” Bush said.

“Whoa!” Trump replied. “Whoa!”

“I’ve gotta use some Tic-Tacs, just in case I start kissing her,” Trump continued. “You know I’m automatically attracted to beautiful — I just start kissing them. It’s like a magnet. Just kiss. I don’t even wait. And when you’re a star they let you do it. You can do anything.”

“Whatever you want,” said another voice believed to be Bush.

“Grab them by the pussy,” Trump replied. “You can do anything.”

All unedifying stuff. But what do we have but Clinton talking to the paying fans and what Trump calls “locker-room banter”?

 

donald trump jill harth

 

Listen in. Language is NSFW. Trump is revolting. Bush is sleaze personified.

 

 

Trump has now apologised. Well, sort of. He said: “This was locker room banter, a private conversation that took place many years ago. Bill Clinton has said far worse to me on the golf course – not even close. I apologize if anyone was offended.”

His apology is not for his comments rather for your taking offence at them. It’s a remarkably dishonest approach to saying ‘sorry’.

Expert to hear lots now on Bill Clinton’s attitude to women and Jill Harth, the woman who sued Trump over an alleged sexual assault. The Guardian dished the dirt:

She first met Trump in December 1992 at his offices in Trump Tower, where she and her then romantic partner, George Houraney, were making a business presentation. The couple wanted to recruit Trump to back their American Dream festival, in which Harth oversaw a pin-up competition known as American Dream Calendar Girls. Harth described that meeting as “the highlight of our career”.

But in other ways, it was something of a lowlight: Trump took an interest in Harth immediately and began subjecting her to a steady string of unwanted sexual advances, detailed by Harth in her complaint.

She claims that in January 1993, Harth and Houraney were visiting Trump’s Florida mansion. She alleges:

“He pushed me up against the wall, and had his hands all over me and tried to get up my dress again, and I had to physically say: ‘What are you doing? Stop it.’ It was a shocking thing to have him do this because he knew I was with George, he knew they were in the next room. And how could he be doing this when I’m there for business?…

“Trump did everything in his power to get me to leave him. He constantly called me and said: ‘I love you, baby, I’m going to be the best lover you ever had. What are you doing with that loser, you need to be with me, you need to step it up to the big leagues.’

“He was constantly working on me during that time and that took a toll on me. But I moved on. I’m a forgiving type person, OK? I’m a Christian, I moved on.”

He denies the allegations.

America waits to elect one or the other of what must be the least appealing choice since Michael Barrymore asked “Top, Middle or Bottom?”

Hillary Clinton’s not bitter: she and Trump are just symptoms of a diseased system

Compare and contrast Hillary Clinton’s opinion of millions of Americans. She said the words at a New York fundraising do:

“You know, to just be grossly generalistic. you could put half of Trump’s supporters into what I call the basket of deplorables. Right? The racist, sexist, homophobic, xenophobic, Islamophobic – you name it. And unfortunately there are people like that. And he has lifted them up.”

Now listen to Barack Obama in 2008:

“You go into these small towns in Pennsylvania and, like a lot of small towns in the midwest, the jobs have been gone now for 25 years and nothing’s replaced them. And they fell through the Clinton administration, and the Bush administration, and each successive administration has said that somehow these communities are going to regenerate and they have not.

“And it’s not surprising then they get bitter, they cling to guns or religion or antipathy toward people who aren’t like them, or anti-immigrant sentiment or anti-trade sentiment, as a way to explain their frustrations.”

And Hillary Clinton’s response:

“I was taken aback by the demeaning remarks Senator Obama made about people in small-town America. His remarks are elitist and out of touch.”

Is this why people are voting for Donald Trump?

No, says one writer:

You can’t win an American presidential election without the deplorables’ vote. Deplorables are America’s biggest minority. They might even be the American majority. They may or not be racist, homophobic and so forth, but they know they’re deplorable. Deplorable, and proud…

They might even forgive Hillary for losing tens of thousands of compromising emails on an illegal private server and then repeatedly lying about it in a way that insults the deplorable intelligence of the average voter. But the one thing you can’t do is spit on them and tell them it’s raining. They’ll never forgive you for that. They’re hurting, and they rankle at candidates who rub their faces in it.

Yes, says another:

Clinton’s staffers started handing out stickers saying “I’m not bitter” and she went on to win the primary by nine points. She ultimately lost the nomination by a convincing margin.

What of the lasting damage to candidate Obama from this revealing insight into this elitist character? In the general election, Obama won Pennsylvania by 10 points. He took God-fearing Virginia by 6 points, and gun-loving Indiana by 1 point.

Clinton or Trump?

One comment chimes:

Many people see the choice of Donald Trump as the Republican nominee as a disaster for the Republican Party. Maybe. That out of the chaos of 17 Republican candidates we get Trump because of a disconnect between the Republican base & the money-men is one thing. But, for the entire Democratic political & cultural establishment to get together & choose Hillary as their only possible standard-bearer is a rot of an entirely more profound order. The fact that within the Democratic Party the only faction that resisted Hillary’s spell was the space-cadet Left under Bernie Sanders just makes the total picture all the more horrifying.

Vote now and vote often.

ISIS and Putin yet to claim responsibilty for bogus Hillary Clinton fainting video

Did you see the video of Hillary Clinton wobbling as she was placed in a large van after “overheating” at a 9/11 memorial event in New York? People says she “nearly fainted”. The Daily Star says “Hillary Clinton faints and gets dragged into car”.

The LA Times says the “Video shows Hillary Clinton struggling to stand”. Fox News says Hillary succumbed to a “medical episode”.

Shock Jock Alex Jones says: “This video proves we have been right all along and Hillary Clinton is sick and needs urgent medical care.”

 

 

And Slate says it might all be a fake.

 

hillary faints

 

Yeah, the website thinks the video might be bogus, a fake. On 9/11, a day not exactly a stranger to conspiracy theories, Slate says forces unknown (ISIS? FSA? K-Tel) produced that video.

Slate adds:

After lots of confusion among those present about what happened, the Clinton campaign released a statement. “Secretary Clinton attended the September 11th Commemoration Ceremony for just an hour and thirty minutes this morning to pay her respects and greet some of the families of the fallen,” spokesman Nick Merrill said. “During the ceremony, she felt overheated, so departed to go to her daughter’s apartment and is feeling much better.”

Later, we all got to see another video, an official one released by Team Hillary as the would-be President left her daughter’s New York flat. Conspiracy theorists will note that the child bears only a passing resemblance to more recent photos of Chelsea Clinton.

 


 

The video has not been checked for authenticity, and the girl with ‘Hillary’ could well be a Russian dwarf.

“Thanks for all the LOLz”: Creators of the “Texts from Hillary” internet sensation bow out

“THANKS for all the LOLz. We truly appreciate all the support.”

The founders of the “Texts from Hillary” Tumblr, Stacy Lambe and Adam Smith, have decided to bow out at their peak, reached just days after they launched their parody blog. It uses photographs of Clinton aboard a military transport plane flying to Libya in October. Wearing large sunglasses and texting on her Blackberry, Clinton is surrounded by staff and briefing papers. The images of her are paired with photographs of other politicians and celebrities and captioned with witty missives and text speak.

Bush Haters Say Obama Won The War On Terror: Hillary Clinton Disagrees

OBAMA killed Osama. That’s the gist of the chant outside the White House. “Yes we can,” comes the chant.

It’s all a bit odd, isn’t it? The war Osama bin Laden started. The war George Bush went into without batting an eyelid. The war that caused Al Qaeda killers to be captured and sent to Guantanamo Bay – that’s the place Obama said he’d close just as soon as he was elected. The war in Afghanistan that was about the US getting Bin Laden and crushing Al Qeda. Well, Obama, who came to power after it had began, has won it.

Hillary Clinton Says Something Very Stupid About Drugs

HILLARY Clinton says something truly stupid about drugs: there’s too much money in drugs for them to be made legal. Yeah – she never heard of prohibition.

Recently, during an interview with Mexico’s Televisa, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton declared that the United States can’t legalize drugs “because there is just too much money in it.”

Apparently, Clinton doesn’t understand that there’s so much money to be made selling illegal drugs precisely because drugs are illegal. Reason.tv uses Clinton’s love of pant suits and Chardonnay to explain the economics of prohibition to the former presidential candidate.

Bill Clinton’s Top Ten David Letterman Jokes

bill-clinton-lettermanDAVID Letterman sticks his tongue through his teeth and fesses up to shagging members of his staff. It’s an all-too- predictable story of a powerful man shtupping younger women keen to impress the boss and get ahead (fnar).

A story of enemies, the law and tapes. You may have heard the story before in the case of Bill Clinton.

Bill loved the ladies, and Dave loved that Bill provided him with easy material for his funnies. Like Bill, Dave has nicknames for women working under him (hit that snare drum). You can read them here. Here’s Dave:

“Today, Monica Lewinsky is 28,” he joked in 2001. “It seemed like just yesterday she was crawling around on the floor in the Oval Office.”
