Gees, Even Democrats Are Telling Hillary To Shut Up Already!

Beware of This Individual Stumbling Around Aimlessly Telling Anyone Who Will Listen
That She Should Be The President of the United States. If She Knocks, Don't Let Her In. 

I never thought I'd every hear Maud Behar call Bill Clinton a "virus in the Democrat party", or Hillary's own people admit she has a stunning lack of self awareness and it's time to shut up and stop embarrassing them. But there it was, Patti Solis Doyle, Hillary Clinton’s former presidential campaign manager admitting what you know a lot of dems are saying privately, that it was a bad idea for the former candidate to be insulting millions of Americans who didn't vote for her in a recent speech. They think it's time she puts a sock in it for the sake of the party as Clinton’s behavior is approaching nightmare levels of bad PR. 

The campaign manager for Hillary Clinton’s doomed attempt to win the Democratic nomination in 2008 spoke to S.E. Cupp on HLN about Clinton bad-mouthing Americans.
"Look, this, this was bad, I can’t sugarcoat it. She’s put herself in a position where Democrats are going to have to distance themselves from these remarks and distance themselves from her, particularly those Democrats that are running in states that Donald Trump won like Ohio and Pennsylvania and Wisconsin and Michigan.”
Clinton’s comments were made before the Asia Today Conclave in Mumbai India on her international 'It's Everyone's Fault But Mine That I'm Not President' book tour.
“So I won the places that are optimistic, diverse, dynamic, moving forward, and his whole campaign, ‘Make America Great Again,’ was looking backwards. You know, you didn’t like black people getting rights,” you didn’t like women y’know, getting jobs, you don’t want, y’know, see that Indian American succeeding more than you are, whatever your problem is, I’m gonna solve it.”
Stress, booze and age have caught up with our intellectual superior, the bitter, corrupt and greedy evil old bat with the shrill and grinding voice who spews her incessant bitching and moaning about losing the White House.  Someone just needs to tell her SHE lost the election with one 'basket of deplorables' remark, a fleeting moment of honesty of how she feels about real Americans. Someone needs to tell her she's just a hairy wart on American politics now. 

Thank You MJA for the Linkage!

Her Plans for the Destruction of America as We Know It.

From Hillary Clinton's website:

As president, Hillary Clinton will:
* Defend President Obama’s executive actions to provide deportation relief for DREAMers and parents of Americans and lawful residents, and extend those actions to additional persons with sympathetic cases if Congress refuses to act and enact comprehensive immigration reform to create a pathway to citizenship, keep families together, and enable millions of workers to come out of the shadows. 
* Defend President Obama’s DACA and DAPA executive actions. President Obama’s executive actions that provide relief from deportation for DREAMers and parents of Americans and lawful residents would protect an estimated 5 million people. Hillary will defend DACA and DAPA against partisan attacks and politically motivated lawsuits that would put DREAMers and others at risk of deportation.
* Create a national Office of Immigrant Affairs to ensure successful immigrant and refugee integration in every community. Given the cross-cutting nature of immigrant integration policy concerns, Hillary believes it is critical that there be a proactive effort to coordinate policies and programs across federal agencies and with state and local governments. 
* Expand access to affordable health care to all families. Hillary has been fighting her entire life to ensure that families have access to affordable health care. She sponsored the Immigrant Children’s Health Improvement Act in the Senate, which later became law and allows immigrant children and pregnant women to obtain Medicaid and SCHIP.
* Close private immigrant detention centers. Hillary will end private immigrant detention centers. She believes we should move away from contracting out this critical government function to private corporations and private industry incentives that may contribute—or have the appearance of contributing—to over-incarceration.

Who is This Johnson of Whom You Speak?

"At the moment, he’s probably most often confused with that plumber who fixed your running toilet last month or your spouse’s weird friend from work who keeps calling the landline, but he’s neither — he’s the former governor of New Mexico, likely Libertarian candidate for president, and he’s polling at 10 percent in two recently released national polls against Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump.
A Morning Consult survey published Tuesday and found Clinton getting 38 percent of the vote, Trump 35 and Johnson 10, with 17 percent undecided. A Fox News poll conducted from May 14-17 showed Trump leading over Clinton, 42 percent to 39 percent, but Johnson at 10 percent as well. Lest you think this is some fluky May development, a Monmouth University survey conducted in mid-March — while the political universe was still busy wringing its hands over the Republican nomination — found that in a three-way race, Clinton would get 42 percent, Trump 34 percent and Johnson 11 percent.
Given that Trump and Clinton are sporting historically high negative ratings, Johnson’s polling makes a fair bit of sense; Gary Johnson is neither Donald Trump nor Hillary Clinton."

Political Primary Turnout No Indication of General Election Victory

For all those who believe that party turnout in the primary is predictive of general election victory in the Fall, a corrective. From Larry Sabato:

By the way, 1972, 1980 and 1984 weren't just Republican victories. They were smashing, devastating defeats for the Democrats. 1972 and 1984 are, in fact, the two biggest electoral college victories of all time. 1984 was 525-13, a total blowout.

The journalist Glenn Greenwald once wrote that “American political culture quickly and always outpaces any attempt to satirize it.” He was right, and that was even before the 2016 election circus rolled into town.

A Veiw From the Cheap Seats

Bernie's Toast
After Madam Cankles has seemingly coughed and barked her way to the lead and ready to mount the Democrat Party Mantle and hump it all the way to the White House, Bernie Sanders is basically toast......

Sanders is planning to lay off “hundreds” of
campaign staffers across the country 
"After Tuesdays drubbing in the latest round of Democratic party primaries, the great Bernie Sanders socialist revolution is officially on life support. Following a comment from Democrat Senate capo Harry Reid that there was no path to the nomination for Sanders, the pressure is going to be turned up on the old goat to give up the ghost and drop out of the race.
It’s quite clear that the sell by date for the Sanders campaign has now passed and after losing all of the votes last night with the exception of Rhode Island the fat lady is now humming as she gets closer to bursting into song. 
The increasingly desperate codger is grasping at anything to save him as he gets slowly sucked under by the quicksand of history, like floating the idea of recruiting progressive heroine Elizabeth Warren as his running mate."- (READ MORE)
Reports today say Bernie is ready to lay off hundreds of campaign staff. As the old hunting saying goes: it’s time to call in the dogs and piss on the fire, Bernie

Trump Gets All Foreign Policy and Stuff
Dressed with the trappings of gravitas, Trumps Foreign Policy speech was held at the stately Mayflower Hotel (after a last-minute location change blamed on “overwhelming interest” - from the media) and was presided over by Zalmay Khalilzad, a former U.S. ambassador to Afghanistan and Iraq. 
Gaul is supposed to be a big deal, but it’s
nothing. Very disappointing. Terrible hotels. 

Trump used a teleprompter despite the fact that he has mercilessly mocked his rivals for doing the same, saying at one point: “If you’re running for president you shouldn’t be allowed to use a teleprompter.”

I read the text of Trumps Speech. (I did liked the complete sentences) But all in all, it was a bunch of lines from other Trump speeches forced into an outline by some poor speech writer.  I learned nothing new, except that when a text of his usual blather is shoved in front of him, he can deliver it with only minimal digressions into calling things "great", "wonderful" and "tremendous". And by some miracle, the only wall he mentioned was the Berlin one. (really no need, this was not a rally of rabid supporters to lather up) But Trump did give an indication of believing what he was saying. The Big Question left is whether Trump is too big of a flake to live up to executing his own speech once in office.

Get ready to start hearing from the media about how presidential he is, at least until the next rally where he pulls down his pants, waves his dick around, and the crap gets beat out of someone.

More Fodder for the Trump Tinfoil Hat Brigade

Sadly, so many Pro-Trump websites have taken on the trappings of an Alex Jones "Info Wars" website, reposting unfounded twitter rumors and conjecture, to just blatantly misrepresenting the facts, and passed along by readers because of blind hatred who find millions of reasons Ted Cruz shouldn't be president. (I think we all have a few reservations) But here's one they hadn't considered:  Enter one Trumpster, (intelligence expert and sometime investigator for Larry Flint) Wayne Madsen, of Wayne Madsen Report (WMR) trying to throw some more completely tenuous, evidence-free gasoline on the dumpster fire. (Don Your Tinfoil Hats Here)
"Previous questions have surfaced about the 1960s activities of Rafael Cruz, Sr., the father of GOP presidential hopeful Rafael Cruz, Jr. (Ted Cruz). Based on the presence of the elder Cruz, an anti-Castro activist in Dallas and New Orleans before the November 22, 1963 assassination of President John F. Kennedy, there is a strong reason to believe that Cruz was associated with Central Intelligence Agency's anti-Castro operations. 
A Cuban hired by alleged JFK assassin Lee Harvey Oswald and who bears a striking resemblance to Cruz is seen in an iconic photograph of Oswald and a group of Cubans Oswald hired (see photo below) who were distributing "Hands off Cuba!" pamphlets in New Orleans in the summer of 1963. The photo of Oswald and other Cubans he hired for the Fair Play for Cuba Committee was taken outside the International Trade Mart in New Orleans on August 16, 1963. WMR has been informed by a source that the individual to Oswald's left is none other than Rafael Cruz. The photograph at the trade mart was favorably compared to a 1954 photograph of Cruz attached to an official Cuban Ministry of Education document."

Photo of Rafael Cruz, Sr. attached to a 1954 Cuban Ministry of Education secondary education graduation certificate from Cuba 

Man to Oswald's left, in center with tie, is reportedly Rafael Cruz, the father of the man who wants to be the next president of the United States. Photograph taken on August 16, 1963 outside the International Trade Mart in New Orleans.

"In 1957, Rafael Cruz, a former salesman for the U.S. intelligence-linked RCA Corporation, left Cuba for the United States. Cruz claims he fought with Castro against the fascist government of Fulgencio Batista but soured on the revolution. However, Cruz left Cuba two years before the Castro revolution.  In 1959, Cruz married Julia Ann Garza and, after Cruz graduated from the University of Texas in 1961, the couple moved to New Orleans from Dallas after the birth of their second daughter on November 18, 1962. 
The senior Cruz was in New Orleans during 1963, the year that New Orleans District Attorney Jim Garrison claimed his city was the focal point for the plot to assassinate President John F. Kennedy." 
OOOOH! It all adds up: a whole bunch of tenuous connections (surely everyone who worked for RCA in the ’50s was a spy), and the guy lived in New Orleans and Dallas. It’s really uncanny! What are the odds that anyone else would have lived in two major southern metropolitan areas around the same time that Oswald and others supposedly involved in the massive CIA conspiracy and assassination?

I guess that makes Ted Cruz CIA by osmosis, a tool of the shadow government, potential leader of the coming One World Government! Boo!

And just so you'll know, this Wayne Madsen guy has a sterling record  of discovering uncomfortable truths that THEY don’t want you to know,*Wink Wink*, such as Israel and Saudi Arabia did 9/11 together, and says he can prove the “Barack Obama is a Gay Homosexual” theory, and also claimed that he had proof of Obama’s real Kenyan birth certificate. So this is clearly a guy who knows his stuff. 

Oh, and BTW, the same Wayne Madsen was the expert interviewed by the National Enquirer who said Ted Cruz probably sex banged all the DC Madam’s hookers.

Trump Supporter Claims He Was Turned Away From Colorado Caucus, There's Only One Problem

Larry Wayne Lindsey - Unhinged FaceBook obsession with Ted Cruz’s alleged sexual exploits
and supposed ineligibility, but no one questioned his story?
It appears that Trump supporters who have rallied behind Larry Wayne Lindsey have been schlonged.  Lindsey became an overnight sensation after the Trump Report Drudge Report highlighted a video of the wannabe Trump delegate burning his Republican party registration after pro-Cruz political insiders cast him aside. 
The trouble with Larry’s story is that it isn't true. 
Larry did not attend the county caucus, which is where he needed to go in order to get elected as a delegate to the state convention.

Hillary's Five Swipes

Anyone remember G.H.W. Bush's Grocery Market Scanner Moment. The left went full retard and called him "Out of Touch" with ordinary people. Not so much with Hillary, as she pretends to rub shoulders with the average NYer. Guess she doesn't ride the sub to Goldman Sachs very often........ 

And to boot, she appears to have violated the Law.

(Screen Grab - NYP)

There Is One Similarity Between Trump Supporters and Sanders Supporters …

Let’s be clear: the differences between Donald Trump and Bernie Sanders are profound. Their policies, their dignity and their visions. Sanders is a crazy old Commie. Trump a self-absorbed ass.  Which is why I find their respective supporters’ opinions so interesting on one matter: lots of Trump’s supporters, and lots of Sanders’ as well, seem completely convinced that if their candidate is not the nominee, it will be the result of some conspiratorial combination of party leadership and media perfidy. 

According to some of Sanders’ supporters, then, it is in no way shape or form possible that Hillary Clinton has spent 30 years building connections in the Democratic Party, doing and calling in favors, and so has worked her way to a winning position. Instead, the recent party-joining Sanders is the “real” Democrat.  It’s all media and party bias.  Nor does it matter that the media has REALLY over-attended the Trump campaign, not Clinton’s.  It’s all party and media bias.

Likewise, for Trumpsters, it’s their guy or the highway, but he’s neither a Republican nor a credible national leader.  The fact large numbers of Republican voters and leaders might have qualms about supporting his celebrity candidacy is absurd on its face to such persons.  It’s all conspiracy all the time.

Has Ted Cruz Mastered the Intricacies of the GOP Primary Process?

by Rob Janicki
"It would appear so, but don't be mislead into thinking it was just a lucky break for Cruz.  Cruz began his assault on the GOP presidential nomination a year before he announced his candidacy.  While most of the other 16 original GOP presidential aspirants were traditionally about fundraising to finance their presidential ambitions, 
Ted Cruz, the political alchemist, was also creating a relatively unheard of means of determining the most probable demographic groups to focus on.   Not only did Cruz use the almost unheard of power of computer analytics of demographic groups, he also installed the most extensive grassroots political team in the 50 plus primaries and caucuses in the United States and its territorial holdings.
So what has made Cruz's campaign continue to grow as Trump's campaign has stalled in Wisconsin and Kasich's campaign simply picks up the crumbs from the Big Boy's table?  In other words, what separates Cruz's campaign from all the others?  The answer, in a phrase, is found in demographic analytics, rather than merely reading the tea leaves of polling.
The Cruz campaign has strategically delved into the voter demographics of every congressional district in America and its territories.  They found that every demographic set and sub set could be counted on to produce a quantifiable primary outcome.  They also came to believe that this analytical method was far more accurate and consistent over time than relying upon polling results to develop strategic targeting over the length of the campaign.
The Cruz campaign has managed to accurately analyze each and every demographic category and subset/s, and there are many subsets, to determine where their campaign targeting would be best utilized.  The Cruz Crew knows everyone in America who has voted or failed to vote in a Republican election going back decades.  They know how those votes were cast and this critical data can be found in their demographic analytical programs.  They know more about every voter's propensity on every issue than can be imagined....."

Trump Decries Washington Insiders, Then Hires One to Save His Campaign

Throughout his presidential campaign Donald Trump has played the angry populist, railing against fat-cat donors, influence peddlers, and Washington establishment insiders who rig the system to the detriment of the American people.
"These people have hundreds of millions of dollars that they've given to these politicians, and these politicians are puppets for them.  With me, I'm going to do what's right for the country."
Yet when Trump needed a political operative to oversee his campaign's crucial delegate strategy—which could determine whether he wins the nomination at the Republican convention in July—he hired one of the most prominent Washington insiders: Paul Manafort, a veteran Republican lobbyist and consultant who has made millions of dollars working the system on behalf of corporations seeking government favors as well as Third World strongmen and kleptocrats.

Manafort, who was the Dole campaign's convention manager, led the effort to minimize the role at the convention of Patrick Buchanan, who had placed second in the GOP nominating contest. Hunting delegates was a side job for Manafort, who focused on lucrative work as a lobbyist for under-fire corporations and reviled political figures.

In 1985, for example, Manafort and an aide flew to Angola, which was then in the middle of a bloody civil war, to woo Jonas Savimbi, a onetime Maoist and brutal warlord who allegedly relied on blood diamonds to fuel his army. He managed to land a $600,000-a-year contract to represent Savimbi and his UNITA party in Washington, DC, and to try to help Savimbi win US funding.
For $600,000 a year, the firm has represented Angola's thuggish Jonas Savimbi, an alleged witch burner, and his guerilla group UNITA, helping promulgate his "freedom fighter" image and persuading Congress to approve more than $230 million in covert aid to Savimbi's rebel forces.
Though Trump has talked tough about confronting Russian leader Vladimir Putin, Manafort has links to the darkest corners of Putin's foreign policy world. In the mid-2000s, Manafort went to work for former Ukrainian President Victor Yanukovych, a Putin ally who was deposed in 2014 following mass protests over his administration's corruption and vote-rigging.

In another chapter of Manafort's long career, he pulled off a feat that epitomizes the kind of inside-the-Beltway cronyism that Trump rails against. In 1986, Manafort was paid more than $326,000 by a developer to lobby a Reagan administration official to approve a $43 million taxpayer-funded grant for a housing project in New Jersey that local officials didn't even want. His role in the deal became the subject of a congressional hearing, where Manfort told members of Congress that he shouldn't be faulted for knowing how to game Washington

How serious is Trump about his crusade to rid Washington of high-paid, system-rigging influence peddlers? By putting Manafort on his campaign payroll, he has demonstrated he certainly isn't against using these insiders if it benefits his own special interest.

Trump Threatens Louisiana on the Twitter With His Legions of Sleazy Lawyers

After claiming to have been shut out of important Republican National Convention committee slots in Louisiana, Donald Trump’s campaign argued on Monday that the posts were chosen at a “secret meeting” to which Trump delegates weren’t invited. Trump adviser Barry Bennett told MSNBC an interview Monday:  
“The problem we’re having here is that there was a secret meeting in Louisiana of the convention delegation, and apparently all of the invitations for our delegates must have gotten lost in the mail.”  
Bennett also said during the TV interview that the Trump campaign’s “legal team” will try to decertify Louisiana’s delegates. Trump late Sunday threatened on Twitter that there was a “lawsuit coming” against someone in Louisiana.

Just One Big Problem: Mr. Trump’s two Louisiana state co-chairmen both attended the “secret meeting” which was in fact a gathering at the Louisiana state GOP convention March 12, according to Jason Dore, the state party’s executive director. Dore said the state party held its election for delegation committee posts in accordance with state party rules, which were implemented and published online in 2015.

Trump got his legal delegates, his  whining real issue are the votes from five delegates awarded to Florida Sen. Marco Rubio, who has since suspended his campaign, and five other unbound delegates. Both the Rubio delegates and the unbound delegates are free to vote for any candidate at the Republican National Convention in Cleveland.

This is an attempt create controversy in his favor. But what Mr. Trump fails to understand is the Louisiana GOP are also  themselves a pack of sleazy Lawyers, and are well versed on the underbelly of politics he seems to lend himself to lately.

Sorry, Mr.Obama, The Jokes Aren't Funny Anymore

Opposing Views
On March 12, The New York Times turned the clock back five years to an overlooked moment that may have been the beginning of Donald Trump's bid for the White House. It was the White House Correspondents’ Association Dinner, the annual event that reminds regular Americans just how cozy the press is with the government it's supposed to cover in an adversarial manner. In 2011, many of the journalists in the room were still star-struck, still convinced that President Barack Obama was the transformative figure who'd end political divisiveness and usher in the era of Hope and Change.
Wearing a bow tie and a mischievous grin, Obama took a warm-up dig at Mitt Romney -- his eventual opponent in the 2012 race -- before spending the next four minutes mocking Donald Trump, who was sitting in the audience.
"Say what you will about Mr. Trump," Obama said, "he certainly would bring some change to the White House."
Then the president pointed toward a projector screen, showing a crudely Photoshopped White House with a garish vertical extension topped by Trump's name and bright purple neon. That joke followed earlier jabs about Trump's "birther" skepticism.
"No one is happier, no one is prouder to put this birth certificate matter to rest than The Donald," Obama said, "and that's because he can finally get back to focusing on the issues that matter, like, 'Did we fake the moon landing?' 'What really happened in Roswell?' And 'Where are Biggie and Tupac?'"
The journalists in the room laughed as if Obama were Louis CK, and Trump smiled and waved as the crowd looked for a reaction.
As the Times notes, Obama is still laughing, and still taking digs at the Republican front-runner. But as Trump stands on the verge of a major party nomination for the presidency, his campaign is no longer the joke most people thought it was. Obama himself might be the one responsible for turning the idea of a Trump presidency from a joke to a serious goal for the real estate magnate, who by all accounts craves approval and credibility.
Obama might be the last person snickering, and that's probably not going to do him -- or Democratic presidential front-runner Hillary Clinton -- any favors if the president hits the campaign trail as often for Hillary as he says he will.
Indeed, Obama seems to enjoy belittling Republican rhetoric on national security and terrorism, which is not a good look for him on days like today, when the Islamic State reminded the world it can still strike prime civilian targets with impunity. The March 22 attacks proved ISIS hasn't been crippled by renewed vigilance, not when the fundamentalist group can hit an airport and a subway station in one of Europe's major capitals.
If Obama keeps on joking, he runs the risk of hurting the eventual Democratic nominee more than helping. It's not far-fetched to imagine campaign ads tying Clinton to Obama, with a voiceover of the latter making jokes about terrorism over footage of blood-soaked women and children stumbling out of ruined airport terminals.
The decision-makers and strategists who run the Democratic party should remind Obama that he's the president, not a comedian. The time for joking is over.

Bobby Jindal Throws Hat Into The Ring for VP

The one time darling of the GOP, former Louisiana Governor Bobby Jindal, who failed miserably in his bid for president has announced that he’s standing in support of Donald Trump.  Jindal, who was at one time extremely critical of Trump as "Bombastic" and "Off Kilter' as a presidential candidate, has now had an epiphany, so to speak, and has hitched his tarnish wagon of political hopes to the stallion D.J.Trump who seems to be running away with the race.

Our popular Governor was re-elected to a second term in a landslide, but immediately began running for president soon thereafter, increasing state spending and bloating a state budget with things like creative hiring practices of state consultants and increasing state employee roles to make Louisiana employment numbers look better then the national average. Jindal left the state with a swollen 29 Billion dollar budget, and $1.8 billion in the Red. (just as comparison to a  state with similar population numbers, Oklahoma's state budget is 6 Billion).  After turning his attention solely to bolstering his resume as a stanch conservative to impress the primary voter base, and not with the business of the betterment of his state in mind, he left office two months ago as the least popular governor in the country.

But Bobby Jindal is no fool. A Rhodes Scholar and son of Indian immigrants, he sees himself a well versed and softer spoken compliment to Donald Trumps brashness, to be used as a deflection of the media and the left's mantra of Trump being anti-immigrant and racist. Jindal says now he believes Trump’s success is a “death knell” for the Republican establishment, the one he himself rode to victory twice. 
"The reality is, you can do the math. He has done very, very well. It is exactly what is wrong with the GOP establishment and it ignoring the will of the voters."
Believe me when I say, Bobby Jindal has just actively thrown into the ring his hat for VP.

Okay Lil' Marco, Go to Your Room Now!

Remember when Marco Rubio first announced he was running for president, and we laughed and rolled our eyes and said yeah, uh huh, ain't gonna happen. We were so much younger then, in April. That was so many yesterdays ago, but now is today, which is almost over too, as is Marco Rubio’s presidential campaign. Now go to your room Marco!
