  • Obama tells Democrats: We lost because 'people were so focused on me'

    06/30/2018 6:21:04 PM PDT · by ameribbean expat · 91 replies
    Former President Barack Obama said Democrats failed to maintain control of the White House and take Congress in 2016 because they were too focused on him personally and were waiting for inspiration to vote rather than concentrating on winning at all cost. “I’ll be honest with you, if I have a regret during my presidency, it is that people were so focused on me and the battles we were having, particularly after we lost the House, that folks stopped paying attention up and down the ballot,” he said Thursday at a Democratic National Committee fundraiser in Beverly Hills, Calif., according...

    Starbucks executive chairman Howard Schultz said on Tuesday that President Trump's rhetoric on race is partly to blame for the country's "racial divide." Schultz said he believes the president has given people license to copy the "behavior and language that comes out of this administration," in an interview with CNN Tuesday. "Having said that, the racial divide and the inequities that exist between people of color and caucasians in America is a problem that's existed for quite some time and I think — we have to ask ourselves a very important question and that is, what kind of country do...
  • Hillary Clinton is still making Democrats pay for 2016

    NY Post ^ | 5/18/18
    Hillary Clinton headlined her first post-2016 fundraiser for the Democratic National Committee this week, which should help the DNC pay its bills to . . . her. Clinton, you see, is insisting the Democratic Party pay her group, Onward Together, $1.65 million for access to the Hillary for America email list, voter data and software from the 2016 campaign. And that, The Intercept reports, is on top of the more than $700,000 the DNC has already paid to rent the list. Indeed, the Republican National Committee notes (meow!) that Clinton only did this first fundraiser after the DNC stopped its payments to...
  • Rolling Stone Insists John Podesta’s Emails Were 'Leaked by the Russian Government'

    John Podesta's emails were leaked by Wikileaks which means they were really leaked by the Russian government. That's a fact? At least it is a "fact" being pushed by Rolling Stone and much of the rest of the mainstream media despite that fact that Wikileaks founder Julian Assange has denied that Russia was the source.  Rolling Stone again pushed the Russians as hackers of Podesta's emails scenario right at the start of their interview with New York Times reporter Amy Chozick, author of Chasing Hillary. Interviewer Tessa Stuart included the Russian hacking claim in the very first sentence of the interview.

    Hillary Clinton took some more jabs at the media on Sunday, blaming negative coverage for playing a role in her loss in 2016. Clinton made her comments at the Pen America World Voices Festival and said that during her campaign, "the mainstream political coverage was influenced by the right-wing media ecosystem." She pointed to a "false equivalency" in the media's coverage, originally noted by Harvard University professor Thomas Patterson. Clinton also said that negative news imparted by election coverage "has had a leveling effect that opens the doors to charlatans."(snip) Clinton also said that media coverage has been more "straightforward"...

    Hillary Clinton, the best-funded, most-prepared, most media-supported candidate in U.S. presidential political history, lost because the FBI had it in for her, according to a new story in The Atlantic.This is the same FBI whose agents texted each other regularly about their hatred of then-candidate Donald Trump, who talked of “insurance policies” and working with people all over the world to bring him down, who closed an investigation into whether Hillary Clinton violated numerous federal laws with her homebrew server before even interviewing her, whose former director just admitted in a book that he told President Obama he dreaded having...

    WEST PALM BEACH FLORIDA-Nikki R. Haley, the ambassador to the United Nations, fired back at the White House on Tuesday, denying that she had been confused when she announced on Sunday that the Trump administration would impose new sanctions on Russia. "With all due respect, I don't get confused," she told Dana Perino of Fox News. She was responding to a comment earlier in the day by Larry Kudlow, the president's new economic advisor who was briefing reporters in Florida before President Trump's meeting with Prime Minister Shinzo Abe of Japan. "She got ahead of the curve,” Mr. Kudlow said....

    Hillary Clinton blames misogyny, FBI, sexism, NRA, Russia for 2016 loss by Pete Kasperowicz | April 04, 2018 07:49 AM Hillary Clinton on Tuesday recited a list of several factors that contributed to her 2016 loss against Donald Trump, and said America is in a "really bad spot" with President Trump in the White House. "[E]very day that goes by there’s more evidence and more proof of Russia and fake news and Cambridge Analytica and misogyny and sexism," she said, according to Newsweek. "I mean it’s hard, it’s very hard." She said the "lock her up" chants that Trump led...

    Washington Examiner ^ | March 26, 2018 | by Anna Giaritelli
    Hillary Clinton's former communications director Jennifer Palmieri on Monday cited sexism as a key factor in why the 2016 Democratic nominee for president lost the election. "Fundamentally, I think there's just something they find suspicious in a woman looking to succeed," Palmieri told NBC host Megyn Kelly in a conversation about Clinton's loss. "I think that a man would have survived that [email scandal] and I think that there was going to be something in the campaign that ended, the emails, if it weren't the emails, it would have been something else," Palmieri explained. "She's always been stepping a little...

    Apparently intoxicated by adulation coming her way as progressives desperately want her not to retire, Ruth Bader Ginsburg skates close to political advocacy, which should be taboo for a Supreme Court justice. Last night, she offered a new excuse for Hillary Clinton's failure to win what most journalists and politicians believed was a slam-dunk presidential race. Ginsburg said she thought it was difficult for Hillary Clinton to "get by the macho atmosphere" dominating the election. This represents an escalation from her earlier charges that "sexism" played a major role in the election, as she did last September: CNN's Poppy Harlow...

Ginsburg, speaking at a Columbia University Women’s Conference event, was asked to elaborate on remarks she made in September, claiming that “sexism” played a major role in the 2016 election. “I think it was difficult for Hillary Clinton to get by even the macho atmosphere prevailing during that campaign, and she was criticized in a way I think no man would...

    Americans blame President Donald Trump and congressional Democrats about equally for the three-day government shutdown that ended Monday with another stopgap spending measure, according to a new NBC News|SurveyMonkey poll. About 4 in 10 people, or 39 percent, think Democrats in Congress are responsible for the shutdown, which began early Saturday morning after Senate Democrats, citing insufficient progress on negotiations over the fate of young immigrants covered by the DACA program, withheld their support for a deal. A similar share, 38 percent, blamed Trump for the shutdown. Just under 2 in 10 (18 percent) said Republicans in Congress were to...

    In essence, the Clinton’s created the Russian “angle” out of thin air; and the FBI and DOJ used that creation as the legal underpinning for the counterintelligence operation. The cointel op was always just a ruse for wiretapping, surveillance and monitoring of Donald Trump campaign officials. If Hillary was elected, the entire counterintelligence operation just disappears into the ether. No-one would ever know about it.

    President Trump went on to Twitter on Tuesday and, to no one’s surprise, he started (again) controlling the news cycle by saying that the Federal Bureau of Investigation used the now famous “Pissgate” so-called dossier (a piece of oppo-research funded by Democrats and concocted by that strange guy Robert Steele) as the basis for starting the probe into the 2016 Russia-collusion conspiracy theory. Here’s the tweet: WOW, @foxandfrlends “Dossier is bogus. Clinton Campaign, DNC funded Dossier. FBI CANNOT (after all of this time) VERIFY CLAIMS IN DOSSIER OF RUSSIA/TRUMP COLLUSION. FBI TAINTED.” And they used this Crooked Hillary pile of...

    Shawn Hannity did a number on Judge Roy Moore Senatorial campaign. Candidate Roy Moore allowed himself to be bushwhacked in a telephone interrogation on national television. Hannnity acted as a prosecutor during the interview. How many Democrats when faced with a sexual scandal, encountered a prosecutorial styled interview? I cannot think of any. Do you remember Steve Kroft's interview of the Clinton's, which was later called the "Stand by Your Man" interview because of Hillary's defense of Bill Clinton? They were all soft ball questions with no follow up. I wanted to smash my television! I wanted to smash my...

    What do you call a system of government that cannot tolerate a transition of power without corrupt machinations by those unwilling to cede control? Banana Republic is a term that comes to mind. The Special Counsel was appointed to determine whether Russia colluded with Trump to steal the election. Michael Flynn was indicted for a conversation he had with the Russian ambassador on December 28, 2016, seven weeks after the election.
