Hillary’s Supreme Court

161028 supreme court

Hillary wants to appoint Justices to the Supreme Court who will overturn the Citizens United ruling.

In the third debate she said she wants a court that will stand on the side of the people rather than wealthy donors. Citizens United is a corporation that bankrolled a movie critical of her. Wrong side of the people.

Supreme Court

Justice Alito asked the government if Citizens United had published a book about a political figure instead of a movie could it be banned too? The answer was probably so.

Innocence of Muslims was the movie Hillary and the White House blamed for the Benghazi attack. The filmmaker was thrown in jail for a parole violation.

It turns out The Donald says crude stuff. Who knew? Jonah Goldberg says he knew but he still seems pretty shocked shocked:

Character is destiny. The man in the video is Donald Trump. Sure, it’s bawdy Trump. It’s “locker room Trump.” And I’m no prude about dirty talk in private. But that isn’t all that’s going on. This isn’t just bad language or objectifying women with your buddies. It’s a married man who is bragging about trying to bed a married woman. It’s an insecure, morally ugly man-child who thinks boasting about how he can get away with groping women “because you’re a star” impresses people. He’s a grotesque — as a businessman and a man, full stop. If you can see that, but still think Hillary Clinton would be worse. Fine.

Shocked Shocked

Actually I do think Hillary would be worse. A lot worse.  Ambassador Stephens got groped and then some.

What’s really crude is Hillary Clinton comparing herself to Honest Abe to explain why she’s a two faced liar.

Elephant In Debate Room

Elephant in debate room

CNN says Hillary Clinton won the debate. Donald Trump disagrees but most other polls aren’t backing him up, so far.

Trump seemed to get the best of Hillary in the first 30 minutes when they tangled over trade rules. He caught her on the wrong side of President Obama’s Trans-Pacific Trade Deal, pointing out that she had called it the “gold standard.” Hillary denied this and then replied it wasn’t her responsibility and that she had changed her mind. So Trump insisted that she say it was Obama’s fault:

TRUMP: You called it the gold standard of trade deals. You said it’s the finest deal you’ve ever seen.


TRUMP: And then you heard what I said about it, and all of a sudden you were against it.

CLINTON: Well, Donald, I know you live in your own reality, but that is not the facts. The facts are — I did say I hoped it would be a good deal, but when it was negotiated…


CLINTON: … which I was not responsible for, I concluded it wasn’t. I wrote about that in my book…

TRUMP: So is it President Obama’s fault?

CLINTON: … before you even announced.

TRUMP: Is it President Obama’s fault?

CLINTON: Look, there are differences…

TRUMP: Secretary, is it President Obama’s fault?

CLINTON: There are…

TRUMP: Because he’s pushing it.

CLINTON: There are different views about what’s good for our country, our economy, and our leadership in the world. And I think it’s important to look at what we need to do to get the economy going again. That’s why I said new jobs with rising incomes, investments, not in more tax cuts that would add $5 trillion to the debt.

At that point Trump seemed to be mopping the floor with her. But Hillary quickly got under his skin by trashing his business acumen and ethics.

She took a page from the Harry Reid playbook to claim Trump doesn’t pay income taxes. Incredibly, The Donald seemed to agree by saying, “it makes me smart.” For the record, PolitiFact doesn’t agree. It rates her claim mostly false.

But after that Trump seemed Low Eenergy.

Elephant In Debate Room

The elephant in debate room was the fact that Immigration, Benghazi, and the Clinton Foundation didn’t make the cut. Those issues were never brought up by moderator Lester Holt or Trump.

Unburdened of that baggage, Hillary dragged her prey off into the tall grass. There she dismembered the small handed one with accusations of racism and sexism.

She claimed the Stop and Frisk law was ruled unconstitutional and moderator Holt backed her up. She also insisted the murder rate continues to decline. In truth, Stop and Frisk was never ruled unconstitutional. And the FBI released a report the next morning showing the murder rate had surged 10.8% in 2015.

Hillary went on to back up her racism charge using Tulsa and Charlotte as “tragic examples.”  Trump lacked the energy to point out that Black people rioted in Charlotte where a black man was killed by a black police officer who worked for a black police chief.

Speaking of the Vast Right Wing Conspiracy, I haven’t used this punchline in a while.

This is Attorney General Edwin Meese in 1988.

Here’s Todd Purdum in Politico:

Twenty years after the New York Times columnist William Safire first called Clinton “a congenital liar” in print, Republican National Committee Chairman Reince Preibus could still rouse his convention delegates in Cleveland with an unyielding refrain about the emails. “She lied,” Priebus cried. “And she lied over and over and over. She lied! She lied!”

Hillary’s War

This week she claimed we didn’t lose a single person in Libya due to her lead-from-behind intervention to take out Gadafi.

We came, we saw, he died,” she enthused.

Pat Smith channeled her inner Madeine Albright saying, “there’s a special place in hell for Hillary.” She is the mother of Sean Smith one of the four Americans killed in Benghazi, Libya September 11, 2012.

She also insists she didn’t blame the Benghazi attack on an awful internet video we had nothing to do with. Come to think of it Obama did the same thing during his re-election campaign. Guess it works.hillary's war
