‘You LIE’: With no real argument against Trump’s travel EO, Tim Kaine resorts to making crap up

Wondering if Senator Tim Kaine is starting to feel his own irrelevance since he and that lady with the bad pantsuits lost the election six months ago … With no real argument against Trump’s so-called “travel ban” (which any thinking person understands isn’t an actual ban but whatever), Kaine decided to get melodramatic and make stuff up: President Trump's travel ban wont make us safer. Hoping 4th Circuit rejects this cruel and unconstitutional religious test — Senator Tim Kaine (@timkaine) May 8, 2017 Cruel. It’s cruel to want to make sure people entering our country aren’t doing so in order to kill us. Hrm. And WTF is unconstitutional about vetting people from certain countries that do a poor job vetting their own people? This is not about Islam, and Kaine knows it. That doesn’t mean he won’t lie about it to push a narrative, though. THERE IS NO FUCKING RELIGIOUS […]

'Where is the integrity?' Hillary's latest answer to FBI questions reveals the desperation in her campaign

‘Where is the integrity?’ Hillary’s latest answer to FBI questions reveals the desperation in her campaign

Appearing on NBC’s “Meet the Press” this morning, Hillary Clinton continued to insistthat a lingering FBI investigation into her is simply politics as usual. Apparently the entire FBI and inspector general are all Republicans. Full quote: I cant control what the Republicans are doing. But I know what the facts are and I will just keep putting them out there. This is something that I think is very clear about what happened and I know it will be over and resolved at some point but I cant control what the Republicans and their allies do, but I think its important for voters to know what are they doing. Poor Mrs. Clinton. If only she weren’t so persecuted for her own actions. She was right this past week when she used the phrase, “another leak.” There’s a leak for sure, and it’s coming from a presidential campaign that some used to […]

'Let's make her president'! This latest Hillary Clinton email bombshell is 'beyond outrageous'

‘Let’s make her president’! This latest Hillary Clinton email bombshell is ‘beyond outrageous’

Clearly: Move along, nothing to see here: The discussion of a foreign national working with the U.S. government raises security implications an executive order signed by President Obama said unauthorized disclosures are presumed to cause damage to the national security.” The U.S. government official said the Clinton email exchange, which referred to a New York Times report, was among 29 classified emails recently provided to congressional committees with specific clearances to review them. In that batch were 22 top secret exchanges deemed too damaging to national security to release. It just keeps getting worse. Will Team Hillary spot another vast right-wing conspiracy in this latest report? Crickets.

http://twitter.com/#!/michellemalkin/status/524651224037998592 Former secretary of state Hillary Clinton was in Aurora, Colo., Tuesday to campaign for Sen.

‘People will die’: Lib video game journo still taking Hillary’s defeat really hard

You know who I trust for political analysis? A video game writer whom I don't even trust for video game analysis. — neontaster (@neontaster) May 10, 2017 Ben Kuchera makes a living writing about video games. Nice work if you can get it, right? Well anyway, somewhere along the way, he got the impression that he’s some kind of political expert. Earlier today, he embarked on an emotionally charged and unwittingly entertaining rant about the grave injustice that was done when Hillary Clinton lost the presidential election to Donald J. Trump. And, of course, also about how much America sucks now because Hillary isn’t president. Hillary Clinton was likely the most qualified presidential candidate in history, and we gave our country to a reality show personality. — Ben Kuchera (@BenKuchera) May 10, 2017 This sounds promising, doesn’t it?

Did Hillary Clinton just prove Marco Rubio correct on due-date abortion? [video, transcript]

Did Hillary Clinton just prove Marco Rubio correct on due-date abortion? [video, transcript]

One of the areas where Marco Rubio did do well in last night’s debate was when he attacked Hillary Clinton on the issue of abortion, going as far as to say she supports it up until the due date of the baby. Clinton’s campaign said last night that the “due date” comment was not true, but they were vague on what exact restrictions she would support in the late third trimester: Her campaign pointed NBC News to remarks she made during an interview on NBC News’ “Meet the Press.” “I’ve said that there can be restrictions in the very end of the third trimester, but they have to take into account the life and health of the mother,” Clinton said on “Meet the Press” in September. “My husband vetoed a very restrictive legislation on late-term abortions, and he vetoed it at an event in the White House where we invited […]

Awkward: Bernie and Hillary attend the same church in Las Vegas

Awkward: Bernie and Hillary attend the same church in Las Vegas

Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders are both attending the same Baptist church in Las Vegas today. Here are Rep. Lewis’ comments on Sanders: “We must have a president that understands the racial divide — not someone who just acquired the knowledge recently, but someone who understands the racial divide and has lived it and worked through it down through the years.” The preeminent voice on civil rights in Congress, downplayed Sanders’ involvement with the SNCC and the movement during the CBC PAC’s press conference Thursday. “I never saw him, I never met him. I was chair of the Student Nonviolent Coordinating Committee for three years — 1963 to 1966,” he said. “I was involved in the sit-ins, the freedom rides, the March on Washington, the march from Selma to Montgomery. I directed the board of education project for six years. I met Hillary Clinton. I met President Clinton.” Glad we […]

http://twitter.com/#!/T_RyanMartinez/status/466719581131005953 Karl Rove caused a stir recently when he suggested that Hillary Clinton’s fall in 2012 could have caused a traumatic brain injury. Chris Matthews was displeased with the former Bush adviser’s remark, to the point of calling Rove a “kamikaze,” but not the “patriotic” kind like “previous kamikazes”: http://twitter.com/#!/AndrewStilesUSA/status/466723263411138562 From the Washington Free Beacon: “That’s tough with Karl Rove, who likes getting hurt,” Matthews said. ”He’s a strange one. Anyway, I really do think he is a Kamikaze, and I’m not knocking previous Kamikazes, ok? Just him. They’re patriotic people. He’s a killer dog.” Dozens of Allied ships were sunk by the desperate Japanese suicide pilot attacks toward the end of World War II.

TONE DEAF: Hillary seems a little too happy about laid off coal miners

Here’s the latest from Secretary Tone Deaf. While talking about alternative energy polices at the CNN town hall, she admitted that those policies would “put a lot of coal miners and coal companies out of business”: To be fair, in the longer clip she does say that it’simportant to create new jobs to replace the ones she’s going to kill, but why would anyone whose job is tied to the coal industry believe her?

‘The GOP made me flip-flop!’ Hillary ‘clarifies’ reason for her TPP about-face – twitchy.com

Inquiring minds wanna know: What prompted Hillary’s change of heart on TPP? Well,initially, this is what she went with: What I know about it, as of today, I am not in favor of what I have learned about it, the former secretary of state said in an interview with PBS News Hour. “I don’t believe it’s going to meet the high bar I have set.” But let’s face it: That’s a B.S. explanation. We know it, and she knows it. So she ultimately went with something much more solid: You guys. You guys: Ho. Lee. Crap. We have to laugh so we don’t punch our fists through the wall. Join the club. Hillary is absolutely and painfully exhausting. Read more: http://twitchy.com/2015/10/07/the-gop-made-me-flip-flop-hillary-clarifies-reason-for-her-tpp-about-face/

Jezebel’s dismissal of ‘old Hillary Clinton story’ mocked with flashback

http://twitter.com/#!/dfgalvin/status/478596825268510720 The Washington Free Beacon has released an audio recording from the early 1980’s which features Hillary Clinton discussing a 1975 criminal case on which she served as the court-appointed attorney defending an accused child rapist. The story itself has been known for a few years, but the audio recordings haven’t before been released. Some are attempting to re-bury the WFB’s scoop as “old news,” among them, the Gawker-owned feminist website Jezebel: http://twitter.com/#!/Jezebel/status/478584069924872192 “Old stories” about politicians aren’t worth bringing up?

Hillary tries to make 'progressive' label stick with free stickers

Hillary tries to make ‘progressive’ label stick with free stickers

Early in the first Democratic presidential debate, moderator Anderson Cooper pressed Hillary Clinton on her political leanings. He noted that while she had told a New Hampshire audience she’d “take a back seat to no one when it comes to progressive values,” at an Ohio stop she acknowledged “being kind of moderate and center.” After some babbling from Clinton, Cooper asked again, “Just for the record, are you a progressive, or are you a moderate?” Clinton was obviously impressed by her own answer, because her campaign is now giving away bumper stickers reprinting her big applause line. OK, so Clinton has driven a stake through the old Hillary Clinton who voted for the Iraq War and argued that the marriage of a man and a woman was “one of the founding, foundational institutions of history and humanity and civilization.” But she also gets things done, although no one can seem […]

‘Yoga routines’? Withheld Hillary emails reportedly contained intel that ‘put lives at risk’

The more Team Hillary keeps spinning the ongoing email scandal, the deeper the story goes: From Fox News: Highly classified Hillary Clinton emails that the intelligence community and State Department recently deemed too damaging to national security to release contain operational intelligence and their presence on the unsecure, personal email system jeopardized sources, methods and lives, a U.S. government official who has reviewed the documents told Fox News. The Hillary campaign’s spokeman has insisted these emails are just examples of “overclassification run amok.” Most qualified candidate in modern history, according to the New York Times! That’s what Hillary would like everybody to believe. Update: Just how bad was it?

‘@HillaryClinton Explain please.’ Is this email ‘the Benghazi smoking gun’? [pic]

Oh, my: More from Judicial Watch: Judicial Watch today released a new Benghazi email from then-Department of Defense Chief of Staff Jeremy Bash to State Department leadership immediately offering forces that could move to Benghazi during the terrorist attack on the U.S. Special Mission Compound in Benghazi, Libya on September 11, 2012. In an email sent to top Department of State officials, at 7:19 p.m. ET, only hours after the attack had begun, Bash says, we have identified the forces that could move to Benghazi. They are spinning up as we speak. The Obama administration redacted the details of the military forces available, oddly citing a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) exemption that allows the withholding of deliberative process information. Bashs email seems to directly contradict testimony given by then-Secretary of Defense Leon Panetta before the Senate Armed Services Committee in February 2013. Defending the Obama administrations lack of military […]

'#BernieGate': Sanders staffer fired for accessing Clinton campaign's voter data

‘#BernieGate’: Sanders staffer fired for accessing Clinton campaign’s voter data

A high-level Bernie Sanders campaign staffer has been fired after being accused of breaching Clinton campaign data: Bernie Sanders was having one of the best days of his presidential campaign Thursday as he racked up two key endorsements and announced that hed passed a major fundraising milestone. But all of that quickly changed late in the day as his campaign confirmed that it had fired a staffer for improperly accessing proprietary data from Hillary Clinton’s campaign and the Democratic National Committee cut off the campaigns access to its voter database. Some things, unlike wealth, are not to be shared. The fired Sanders staffer in question has denied the accusation: At some point maybe they’ll all just agree to blame it on climate change.

We Asked A Lot Of Likely 2016 Candidates Two Questions About Vaccinations

We Asked A Lot Of Likely 2016 Candidates Two Questions About Vaccinations

Most still don’t have clear answers. Carson, Cruz, and Rubio are most specific. View this image › Nicholas Kamm / AFP BuzzFeed News asked a number of lawmakers, including many of the likely 2016 presidential candidates two questions about vaccinations: Does [the lawmaker] think parents should be required to vaccinate their kids (except in cases where medically the child can’t be vaccinated)? Should states offer a religious exemption, or a personal belief exemption of some kind? All states require levels of vaccination for children to attend school, though most states provide a religious exemption, and some states allow a philosophical exemption. The philosophical exemptions in states like California, Texas, and Colorado allow parents to legally keep their children from being vaccinated. In California, for instance, large pockets of unvaccinated children have helped the spread measles, a disease once considered defeated in the United States. Here were the responses: 3. Former […]

Denver Post writer sees racism in the renovation of Union Station

http://twitter.com/#!/bobolson8/status/524915082720206848 Can architecture be racist? Well, according to the Denver Post’s Ray Mark Rinaldi, YES IT CAN! Here’s his piece from October 19: #Denver Union Station's race problem. Read: http://t.co/Fd7ix2gRoH @denverpost @historycolorado @iknowdenver @AIAColorado — Ray Rinaldi (@rayrinaldi) October 19, 2014 And his headline: Did diversity miss the train in Union Station’s architecture? The urban playground at Union Station isn’t drawing people of color and it may be the building’s fault People of color don’t like the way the building is constructed so they’re avoiding it? That’s kind of a racist thing to say. And tweeters were quick to point out the inherent racism in Rinaldi’s claim: If you want to know what REAL racism looks like, this ridiculous Denver Post story is a perfect example. http://t.co/FNnSJpHrPq — Ken Gardner (@kesgardner) October 22, 2014 Um, speechless.

'What an embarrassing quote'! Hillary: Judge me on my 'merits' as a woman - twitchy.com

‘What an embarrassing quote’! Hillary: Judge me on my ‘merits’ as a woman – twitchy.com

Gender politics for me, but not for thee? That’s the Hillary way. Here’s what she had to say earlier: More from TIME: Democratic frontrunner Hillary Clinton says Republican rival Carly Fiorina should not be judged any differently just because she is the only woman candidate in the Republican presidential race. Im always in favor of women running, she told TIME in an exclusive interview. But people need to hold womens policies up to light and determine what their answers to problems would be before deciding to support them. Im willing to subject myself to that process and try to earn every vote; I assume any woman running would do the same. Ah, but Hillary is not just any woman. Which is why she thinks that she should be judged differently because she’s a woman. Her woman-ness is one of her merits, you see: Is that so? Don’t focus on her […]

Hillary Clinton flip-flops, now says that entrepreneurs create jobs

http://twitter.com/#!/jtLOL/status/526834415914057728 How is “businesses don’t create jobs” shorthand for “businesses create jobs”? We hate to say it, but it’s probably time to re-familiarize ourselves with “Clinton-speak” — for example, what the meaning of “is” is. As Twitchy reported, Hillary Clinton told an audience in Massachusetts last week, “Don’t let anybody tell you that, you know, it’s corporations and businesses that create jobs.” Today, though, Clinton admitted she had “short handed” the point and asked for an opportunity to make her point “absolutely clear.” Hillary mops it up: "I short handed this point the other day so let me absolutely clear about what I've been saying for a couple of decades" — Maggie Haberman (@maggiepolitico) October 27, 2014 @maggiepolitico how did she put it this time? — Timothy P Carney (@TPCarney) October 27, 2014 According to BuzzFeed’s Ruby Cramer, this is what Clinton said today at a campaign event for New York […]
