  • Ruth Bader Ginsburg offers a new excuse for Hillary's loss

    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...

    Full title : Supreme Court Justice Ginsburg: ‘Macho Atmosphere’ and ‘Sexism’ Caused Hillary Clinton to Lose 2016 Election Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg claimed Sunday that “sexism” and a “macho atmosphere” contributed to Hillary Clinton’s 2016 election loss. 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...
  • Poll: Democrats, Trump to blame for government shutdown

    NBC "News" ^ | January 23, 2018 | by STEPHANIE PERRY and JOHN LAPINSKI
    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.

    IWB ^ | Chris Black
    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.

    Palestinian activist Linda Sarsour accused members of the “Jewish media” for her bad reputation, in an event entitled “Anti-Semitism and the Struggle for Justice” Tuesday night at New York City’s The New School.“If what you’re reading all day long, morning and night, in the Jewish media is that Linda Sarsour and Minister Farrakhan are the existential threats to the Jewish community, something really bad is gonna happen and we gonna miss the mark on it,” Sarsour remarked in an event intended to be “a discussion on how to combat” bigotry against Jews.It should be noted that Farrakhan once praised Adolf Hitler as...

    A part of me wants this lady to go away, another wants her to continue to give the Democratic Party migraines; sheÂ’s also great for boosting the GOPÂ’s enthusiasm. Hillary Clinton just continues to make her way into the spotlight. With the latest accusations of sexual misconduct against Sen. Al Franken (D-MN), Alabama Republican Senate candidate Roy Moore, and Rep. John Conyers (D-MI), Hillary decided to give her two-cents on Rita CosbyÂ’s radio show last week, noting that accountability has to be exacted regarding these allegations. I bet you can guess what happened next? Cosby asked about the allegations surrounding...

    Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign responded to former Democratic National Committee (DNC) Chair Donna Brazile’s criticisms of the Clinton campaign, including the charge the campaign essentially rigged the 2016 primaries.“It is particularly troubling and puzzling that she would seemingly buy into false Russian-fueled propaganda, spread by both the Russians and our opponent, about our candidate’s health,” reads a letter published online Saturday that was signed by former Clinton campaign officials, including Huma Abedin, Robby Mook, Jennifer Palmieri and John Podesta.Brazile wrote an op-ed Thursday for Politico, claiming the DNC entered into an agreement that gave the Clinton campaign de facto control of...

    Perhaps it was her orange pantsuit that so many lampooned or Trump’s constant mantra of “lock her up,” but Hillary Clinton appears to be auditioning for the new season of “Orange Is The New Black.” Clinton recently complained that former FBI director James Comey “did shiv me, yeah.” The shiv in this case was the letter on the reopening of its investigation into Clinton’s emails that Comey sent to Congress 11 days before the presidential election last year, a letter that she blames for costing her the win. Clinton’s reliance on the Comey letter is dubious at best. Ironically, it...

    British TV journalist Matt Frei asked Hillary Clinton if she’s still blaming other more than herself in an interview Friday.Frei asked about her appeal to the voter during the 2016 presidential election, saying that her status as a Clinton prevented her gender from helping her."Your dynastic appeal or perhaps it was the opposite: The fact that you were called Clinton the fact that you were first lady basically trumped any novelty—if you forgive the term—of being the first female president of the United States," he said. "People looked at your name and your legacy more than they looked at your gender."Clinton answered by laying out...

    Russian efforts to meddle in American politics did not end at Facebook and Twitter. A CNN investigation of a Russian-linked account shows its tentacles extended to YouTube, Tumblr and even Pokémon Go. One Russian-linked campaign posing as part of the Black Lives Matter movement used Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, YouTube, Tumblr and Pokémon Go and even contacted some reporters in an effort to exploit racial tensions and sow discord among Americans, CNN has learned. The campaign, titled "Don't Shoot Us," offers new insights into how Russian agents created a broad online ecosystem where divisive political messages were reinforced across multiple platforms,...

    Hillary Clinton is still recounting her election woes. On Wednesday night the former Democratic presidential nominee appeared on "The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon" to plug her new book about the 2016 presidential race -- and criticize the Trump administration's reaction to the hurricanes in Puerto Rico and the deadly shooting in Las Vegas. Host Fallon started out by addressing Clinton’s new book, titled "What Happened." Clinton said she hoped to “pull the curtain back” on the campaign and “invite people in to see what happened from my perspective.”
