"The gravitational pull of a possible 2016 campaign is bringing all the old Clinton characters into her orbit. Can she make the stars align, or will chaos prevail?"

Prepare for the coming onslaught of Hillarians who will fill our morning, noon, and evening news with propaganda to achieve the nomination of the Democratic Candidate for President. We are about to have history rewritten by these "Progressive" propaganda machines already in existence and known as, "Ready for Hillary", "Emily's List", and "Correct the Record."

We can be sure there will be more.

Apparently the Hillarians want us to believe that because we had so much 'success' with a President who was voted into office with no meaningful credentials, they can slip another credential deficient candidate past the very foolish voters.

From the NY Times article, "Unlike Barack Obama, who will leave the White House with more or less the same handful of friends he came in with, the Clintons occupy their own unique and formidable and often exhausting place in American politics. Over the decades, they’ve operated like an Arkansas tumbleweed, collecting friends and devotees from Bill Clinton’s kindergarten class to Yale Law School to Little Rock to the White House to the Senate and beyond. James Carville has compared the Clinton world, perhaps not so originally, to an onion (it’s safest, he has said, to exist in the third or fourth layer), while other Clinton staff members, past and present, have an endless litany of other metaphors to make sense of it. One former aide told me that working for the Clintons is like staying at the Hotel California (“You can check out, but you can never leave”); another person compared it to prison (“Not everyone can adjust to life on the outside”). Others compared it to a marriage, one as complicated and built on blind loyalty as Bill and Hillary’s own. One former aide noted, succinctly, “People want to feel important, and the Clintons don’t snub people very well.”

Again from the article, "Through it all, the former first lady/secretary of state/likely Democratic candidate for president seemed gracious and untroubled, and yet it was hard not to feel an enjoy-it-while-it-lasts sort of sympathy for Clinton. She had, after all, spent four years at the State Department displaying great political and diplomatic and managerial skill, and in that process shed much of the baggage generally associated with the Clintons."

Hmmm…….

I guess this is a followup on the NYT's recent editorial saying the Benghazi Protest was caused by a spontaneous and violent reaction to a YouTube video. Something a Bipartisan Senate Committee disagreed with. But the "Correct the Record" gang will take care of that by the fall of 2016.

Anyway, I could not find a single mention of the current day problems or how the Hillarians will address them.

'Hillary IS the war on women'
"“The point is what this woman is capable of doing to other women while she’s running a campaign basically on women’s issues. It just doesn’t make any sense. She singlehandedly orchestrated every one of the investigations of all these women [who accused her husband of sexual crimes]. They’re the people reminding us of how sordid this all is.”"

If we were a nation of responsible citizens who properly vetted their leaders, we would not have to worry about the ilks of candidates such as Clinton, Kerry, McCain, Dole, etc. that are FORCED upon us by the corrupt two party system.

The Republicans have a tough go of it because they insist upon catering to select INDIVIDUAL groups of voters, rather than selecting candidates that have shown they are capable of performing the proper roles of government.

They are their own worst enemy.

Hillary has been lying to the American people since her first major TV appearance in January 1992 on CBS’ “60 Minutes.” At that time, she and Bill were scrambling to save his candidacy in the wake of the steamy Gennifer Flowers revelations.

When Steve Kroft asked Bill if he had an affair with Flowers, he answered, “That allegation is false.” Hillary, her hands lovingly intertwined with Bill’s, nodded in affirmation.

Of course, they were both lying, Bill with much greater skill. Democratic Sen. Bob Kerrey would later immortalize Bill as “an unusually good liar.”

At this point in the interview, Hillary tried to explain how these allegations emerged. “When this woman [Flowers] first got caught up in these charges,” she said, “I felt as I’ve felt about all of these women: that they had just been minding their own business and they got hit by a meteor.”

“We reached out to them,” Hillary continued. “I met with two of them to reassure them they were friends of ours.” In the lying days to follow, the media chose not to notice that Hillary had just admitted an active role in silencing Bill’s women.

The silencing often got rough. Among the people the Clintons reached out to that year was Sally Perdue, a former Miss Arkansas and Clinton paramour.

The goon that the Clintons dispatched told Perdue, “There were people in high places who were anxious about me and they wanted me to know that keeping my mouth shut would be worthwhile.”

“Worthwhile” meant a GS-11 or higher job with the federal government. If she turned down the offer and talked to the media, “He couldn’t guarantee what would happen to my pretty little legs.”

Absolutely. It read, "Clinton resigned when the pressure came on too strong. Liberals pounced on Sarah Palin for doing it. How could Hillary ever be Commander in Chief?"

How does Sanford relate to breaking news from the people who support a person who is deficient in qualifications to lead anything much less a country?

Again I ask, "This relates to Hillary Clinton in what way? Was Sanford not in Argentina but secretly in New York seeing 'you know who?' "

"Early Drive for Clinton Unsettles Democrats"

From the article, "With Democrats fighting to keep control of the Senate in the midterms, the emergence of the pro-Clinton super PAC Priorities USA could eat into donations that the party's candidates need to win in November, some Democrats warn. A number of Democratic groups are soliciting donors for money, including super PACS devoted to House and Senate races along with traditional party fundraising committees.

Aware of the anxiety, Priorities officials are considering tailoring their requests so that donors would be asked to write their biggest checks after the midterm elections are over, people close to the super PAC said. For example, Priorities might ask a donor to pledge $1 million to the Clinton effort over the next few years, but write a check for only $100,000 this year, a person familiar with the discussion said."

That's a lie. Clinton had already said a year earlier that she would not continue as Secretary of State should Obama win a second term.

Any comparison to Palin quitting is ridiculous.

Former South Carolina Gov. Mark Sanford, who decided to run to fill a vacated Congressional seat. Remember, Sanford disappeared for six days in 2009 while governor. At first, Sanford's office publicly stated that he was hiking the Appalachian Trail. However, we soon found out that he was actually in Argentina visiting the woman with whom he was having an extramarital affair.
Sanford came in first in a crowded field of Republicans in the GOP Congressional primary.

Redemption and second chances, isn't that part of American tradition?

Hillary is #2 in the list of 'Most Corrupt Polticians for 2013

Following immediately behind Obama in Judicial Watch's list is the next choice of Democrats to lead our country into the gutter, Hillary Cinton.

From the Breitbart article reporting on Judicial Watch's Most Corrupt Politicians for 2013, "The next highest Obama official on the list is former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, noted for her evasion of responsibility for the Benghazi massacre, saying, “…the level of responsibility for the failures… was set at the Assistant Secretary of State level and below,” and yelling “What difference does it make?” when asked why the attack transpired and why the administration lied about a video being the cause of the attack. That outburst followed her statement at a September 14, 2012, event honoring the victims, during which she said, “We’ve seen the heavy assault on our post in Benghazi that took the lives of those brave men. We’ve seen the rage and violence directed at American embassies over an awful video that we had nothing to do with.”

JW also targets Clinton for the conflict of interest regarding her bosom buddy Huma Abedin, who had worked as a “special government employee” (SGE), a consultant position allowing her to represent outside clients while continuing as a top adviser at State. Lastly, JW cites the potential conflict of interest between Hillary Clinton’s role as Secretary of State and Bill Clinton’s international ventures, as noted in 2008 when Bill released a list of donors to his library and foundation in what he termed “a deal between” Obama “and Hillary.” According to the Associated Press, “Saudi Arabia gave $10 million to $25 million to the foundation. Other government donors include Norway, Kuwait, Qatar, Brunei, Oman…”

Larry Nichols says he was the Clintons 'hit man".

From the link, "This is a perfect example of how major stories can be squashed by large media outlets. I was unaware of this story until today. Is it true? Maybe so and maybe not. The point is that if a former associate makes these accusations it should be covered by the media even if their only intent is to discredit such comments.

Larry Nichols was there and he knows what happened. Is he lying? That's something that only he and others that were there truly know.

If the accusations that are flying on the Pete Santilli show are true, it is just more evidence that we cannot fully put our trust in Fox News."

My point is you cons roll from one Democrat to another and if they are running for office you bash them but if you can bash a current office holder by praising the same person you later trash you do so. That's hypocrisy. And you got no one that will beat Hillary. And if people realize that Grimm and other extremist Republicans are bad news you lose the House.


And in my previous post I meant 2024 not 2014.

Hillary breaking Federal election law?

From the article, "Earlier this month, Clinton's failed 2008 presidential campaign rented out their email list to Ready for Hillary. The group then sent out an email to those Clinton supporters, offering bumper stickers that read "I'm Ready for Hillary." While Ready for Hillary is focusing on building their own email database, spokesman Seth Bringman told CNN that Ready for Hillary had rented the Clinton email list in order to "connect with her past supporters."

The anti-Hillary group argues this violates campaign finance law because the rental shows Clinton is supporting the work that Ready for Hillary is doing on her behalf.

“Ready for Hillary is in the business of trying to get Hillary Clinton to run for office – essentially to draft her for office. And that’s their right to do so, provided the object of their draft – Hillary – isn't behind it or helping them, because then it stops being a draft committee and becomes an authorized campaign committee,” Backer said."

Let's see if Eric Holder how our completely unbiased Attorny General sees this……..

"Hillary Clinton continues to crush the 2016 Democratic competition"

From the article, "If the 2016 Democratic primary were today, 73 percent of Democrats and Democratic-leaning independents would vote for Clinton, according to a new Washington Post/ ABC poll. Just 12 percent said they would vote for Vice President Biden, while 8 percent said they’d vote for Sen. Elizabeth Warren, D-Mass. Warren. While Warren is a favorite among liberals, she is among the several lawmakers who have said they’d support Clinton if she were to run."

Prepare to hear this over and over as 2016 approaches……….

For the uninitiated, this is how a potential candidate Hillary Clinton will answer when Benghazi surfaces, as it will.

QUESTION: Any do-overs that you would — relative to Secretary of State?

HILLARY CLINTON: Oh, sure. I mean, you know, you make these choices based on imperfect information. And you make them to — as we say, the best of your ability. But that doesn’t mean that there’s not going to be unforeseen consequences, unpredictable twists and turns.

You know, my biggest, you know, regret is what happened in Benghazi. It was a terrible tragedy, losing four Americans, two diplomats and now it’s public, so I can say two CIA operatives, losing an ambassador like Chris Stevens, who was one of our very best and had served in Libya and across the Middle East and spoke Arabic.

This is the most transparent answer someone in authority can give after a diplomat mission becomes the victim of a terrorist attack. Clinton’s answer has the virtue of also being true.

Every report that’s been conducted has found virtually the same things. Preventable tragedy, with blame to go around, including the CIA and the military.

Hillary Clinton took responsibility, because she was the one in charge. What Republicans want is for her to pay for the collective mistakes that also include Ambassador Christopher Stevens deciding to take risks to complete his mission the way he wanted. Stevens wanted to stay as connected to the locals as possible, people who liked and respected him. "

The above prepared position is to mollify her meltdown before Congress.

You're both right. We haven't had a decent Republican candidate since Reagan. We'll just have to see what happens in the next election.
