40% More Jaw-dropping Fun, HRC Edition

jaw drop 2
Gobsmacked! As if things could not get weird enough, Hillary Rodham Clinton is so transparently on defense about her classified emails that my jaw actually dropped to the floor reading the Politico article linked above (40% chance of being updated by morning, so I grabbed the whole thing, JIC).

For those just catching up, the NYT published an article Friday about some Inspectors General requesting a criminal probe of classified information that was sent/received via Clinton’s personal email, and then the Paper of Record changed it after pushback by Team Clinton. And then they got caught red-handed altering the story.

For those just catching up, yes, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton used a personal email address AND a private server to communicate electronically during her tenure. For those just catching up, yes, that is possibly without a doubt the most ridiculously transparent attempt to circumvent transparency laws the political world has ever seen, and that includes the missing minutes on the Nixon tapes. And finally, for those just catching up, the mainstream media has been pretending for months that all of this is just routine politics, nothing to see here, move along, why dontcha. Forgive & forget, riiiiight?


But that’s all utter bullshite.

Speaking of bullshite, here’s HRC’s defense, from the Politico article (first link in this post):

Clinton went on to say that she turned over 55,000 pages of emails to help the State Department, which had asked all living former secretaries to do the same in order to help with their record-keeping efforts. Clinton then said it was her own desire for transparency that had led to the arguments over levels of classification.

“Then I said, ‘Well let’s make it public.’ If I just turned it over, we would not be having this conversation, but when I said, ‘Hey I want this to be public’, it has to go through the FOIA process.


If we were not asking for it to be made public, there would not be a debate. This is all about my desire to have transparency and make the information public.”


“They can fight or argue over it, that’s up to them. I can just tell you what the facts are, and there’s nothing contradicted in those facts I’m telling you by anything anyone has said so far,” she said.

Bolding mine. In other words, Hillary has only Hillary to blame for this mess. If she were not trying to do the right thing after being caught doing the utterly wrong thing, you wouldn’t even know about this, and so if you would just kindly forget all this so she could please be elected President of the United States, she would really, really appreciate it. M’kay??

Right. Whatever. I don’t even have to hear her voice; I can see the panic rising in her words. She must have been the worst lawyer ever, because a child could lie better than this. Her excuses are like epic poems expounding on the definition of is. The verbiage is excessive and transparent, if what is not being obscured is the fact that she is LYING.

jaw drop 3

Grrrrrr!!!! I want a woman to be president. She does not have to be perfect. She does not have to be guiltless. But she cannot be the horse that wins the trifecta in the complete corruption of American national politics.  Increasingly I’m of the mind that that is just what Hillary Clinton is. I haven’t lifted a finger to help her campaign and I didn’t plan to, but I also didn’t plan to lift a finger to thwart it. I don’t know if that game plan will work in future, though, because now I’m pissed. YMMV.

This is an open thread.

    I can’t imagine Hillary dropping out. She’s wanted to be president since she was a student and she is not likely to give up the chance so easily..

    As Hillary! Craters, Democrats Search for Panic Button

    It’s no longer a question of whether Hillary! Clinton will be the Democratic nominee for president in 2016; it’s only a question of when she will drop out of the race rather than face humiliation a second time:


    • 1539days says:

      i still think the Democrats selected Obama because they thought they couldn’t win with Hillary. The whole point of the unpledged “super” delegates was to make sure another 1968 didn’t happen. What that means, however, is that your primary vote really doesn’t count and the Democrats should just choose a candidate and save everyone a lot of time and money.

      The worst part is that the GOP seems to envy that system.

  2. Lulu says:

    Why did she take this stupid job? Why did she think she could outsmart people who had outsmarted and out lied her in 2008? Why did she leave arguably a better job in the US Senate to be SOS? And work for people who openly hated her? She had never run anything except a law office before becoming SOS and she was god awful at it. She didn’t want to be spied upon and minded by the WH so she set up a mickey mouse server. Who told her to do such a stupid amateur thing? USE the government email server but don’t say anything important on it. And the same for your assistants. Dumbass. The lowliest flunky knows this. The Clinton Foundation run as a bribery collection agency and this stupid stuff. Go retire HIll. Stop making a fool of yourself. Your personal ambition and cluelessness is cringe worthy.

    • 1539days says:

      Hillary thought she was getting much needed experience as SOS. The Obama team knew that they were going to use illegal treaties as foreign policy and would ignore Hillary anyway.

  3. DeniseVB says:

    You don’t want to get on the wrong side of Judge Jeanine, poor HRC ….. Pirro does a nice job linking missing emails to the Clinton Foundation coffers……

    • Lulu says:

      There is a “you owe me” quality to all this bribery shaded as humanitarian work. “I’ll roll over if I can make some money too.”

  4. lildoggy4u says:

    You know. I read all this stuff. But then I also remember we have a campaign and it is a rough and tumble “lets get this in the headlines over and over by the opposition. I checked on Judge Leon’s biography, the Judge insisting there might need to be a criminal investigation. What did I find about this Judge Leon? – In 1994, Judge Leon was Special Counsel to the U.S. House Banking Committee for its “Whitewater” investigation. Partisan much?

    • Lulu says:

      Of course it is partisan. Every blasted thing is partisan. It is the same hacks over and over. None of them ever retire. You can’t get them out of office with blasting caps and nitroglycerin. We need to start stomping on their fingers while they hang on and refuse to go. This attitude about unlimited sinecure for past services has got to go.

      • lildoggy4u says:

        Forgive me Lulu but I had to look up sinecure. Yea, I want one of those jobs. So if I could get one, I wouldn’t do a damn thing about it either. Most people don’t realize this happens except for the recycling of the same speakers in the legislature. But it runs all through gov’t.

      • 1539days says:

        I use the term “term limited by death” because that is one of the most common forms of retirement in government. Guys like Byrd and Kennedy hung on long past the point where they could have performed a real job.

    • Good catch, Lildoggy4u, but it doesn’t change the fact that a high-level official of the government whose job it is to be concerned with security having a personal server and personal email account in her home to conduct business on is a boneheaded, stupid move, especially in in this cyber-warfare day & age.

      Both Clintons have a lot of enemies. After a while, though, it’s like the person who cannot keep a love interest and who constantly complains that it’s the fault of everybody breaking up with him or her. Sooner or later, that person has to look at themselves and ask what it is about them that causes the problem. Even if it could be verified that it was always the other person, one has to ask why that person is always attracting those kind of people. And people just get tired of hearing the bitching and withdraw.

      When I took a tour of the Miami Dolphins Training Camp, our guide was the rookies’ “den mother”, well, one of the trainers, a former NFLer. His job was to beat their heads together and not be stupid. These kids go from $0 bank accounts to hundreds of thousands, maybe millions eventually if they’re not cut before regular season. From what he told us, sounded like he gave the same advice. He pointed out the players’ parking lot, just a field of black Escalades. You can just imagine what lottery winners spend their money on🙂

  7. Myiq2xu says:

    Amanda should move to someplace like Iran, where men don’t kill women.

    • 1539days says:

      I like the part where she mentions a crime where a guy raped a woman and killed two men and basically calls the men collateral damage to a crime against a woman.

  9. piper says:

    Lola, another excellent thread.

    Another good read about white Christian males and why do so many 3rd world people want to live among us if we’re so bad.

  10. driguana says:

    Thanks, Lola. Been hanging out on the fringes of all things political these days as it is becoming increasingly more difficult to tolerate. However, I have seen a couple of clips from interviews with Carly Fiorina recently and I have to say she is really impressive for how she deals with the media. The “interview” with that little twit, Katie Couric, was particularly fascinating.

    • piper says:

      Who will the media send out next to play ‘gotcha’ with certain candidates like Cruz, Fiorina and even Walker. As these so-called journos are having difficulty bringing down these three, they’ll continue to harp on Trump and his so-called outrageous statements which they don’t seem to comprehend resonates with the general public. My advice to the media and elites – take the blinders off and pull your heads out of the sand (okay – am refusing to use ‘asses’ as I don’t want to show off my lower class privilege).

    • DeniseVB says:

      I really like Carly, she’s fearless. She’s also got a strong background on economics and technology. If you can find her interviews on MSNBC, CNN and The View, she’s smart as a whip too.

      • angienc says:

        I’m a huge Carly fan — the more I see her, the more I think I could really get behind her. Unfortunately, she’s not getting much attention.
        I think the MSM sees what a threat she is to Hilary, so they spend ALL their time on the Trump road show. It’s “death by neglect.”

        • driguana says:

          Yep…but there is a long time to go and Carly is really only going to get better, I think. It will be very interesting to watch. I’ve said a couple of times here how interesting it would be to see a Trump vs Sanders debate. In some respects, it might be even more interesting to see a Fiorina vs Sanders debate!

      • DeniseVB says:

        Carly’s right about the ultrasound hypocrisy. When they passed mandatory ultrasounds in Virginia, the left SCREAMED how invasive that was, WarOnWomenWarOnWomen !! Now we find out PP uses it anyhow to see which part of the body not to crush.

  11. piper says:

    Clarice on Cruz, Fiorina and Walker
    “This week, three of the Republican candidates showed their mettle and had very good weeks. Majority leader Mitch McConnell and both the Democrat’s “inevitable” Hillary Clinton and the president’s standings sagged.”

    “In other words, Hillary has only Hillary to blame for this mess.”

    Unless we can find a vast right-wing conspiracy.

    Great post, Lola. I’ve been listening to clips on the radio – CBS newsradio. The clips I’ve heard and the few articles I’ve read and what you have posted are damning of HRC. It makes me wonder (and grieve) at how easily and for just how long I have been bamboozled.

    • piper says:

      2008 was the beginning of the end when she went along to get along at the Dem. convention by refusing to have the delegate roll call leading Bronco’s selection. The Clintons were outsmarted by obama and his minions then and today – they, especially ValJar, have no love for the Clintons and are doing everything in their power (underhandedly) to make sure that Hillary loses, placing their choice as next Dem. Prez candidate – could be John Ketchup, Iranian capitulator, JoeJoe B, dementia patient or Eliz. Warren, faux Indian squaw – anyone who they feel can be trusted to keep the same people in place and continue with ideological policies.

    Soooooo, BLM’s going to take down the Republican Convention ? Good luck with that snowflakes, I’m sure the SWAT teams have been hired long before your threats.


    • 49erDweet says:

      Thinking about this for a moment leads me to a Eureka!!! thought. Who cares? The GOPe is gonna ‘manage’ the convention, so “Shut ‘er down”! Create some chaos. Burn it!
      Maybe from the ashes an actually *real party might be birthed. *Not an incumbents’ club. Love to see actual democracy in action and give the boot to a bunch of old farts. Or not-so-old farts, too.

    Speaking of stirring the pot….nothing more fascinating than stirring the old melting pot…

    • DeniseVB says:

      Hmmm, color me skeptical, it was an AP story. Just got to be careful with those and how they frame their story. The writer found people who love or hate Trump ( or enter any other candidate here) = town divided.

      Right now, AP bylines with Trump seem to be selling stories to their subscribers (local media). This too will pass. Like the polls, ugh, there’s about a bazillion of them now, who can believe them either !?

      • driguana says:

        That’s really true, Denise, and I agree with you about the tenor of the article I posted. Still, they found a few people who sided with Trump and they can’t ignore his issues and popularity among some for too much longer or they will look more ridiculous than they already are!!!

      I see their mouths moving but not really saying anything and it just confirms my fear of pork diets. Dries up brain cells and flushes personal integrity from the system.

  22. Myiq2xu says:

    They are obsessed with Fox News.

  23. Oh wow, nice. Front paged on Daily Kos, a textbook example of black cultural patriarchy bemoaning that Sandra Bland’s story is sucking up all the oxygen when black. men. are. dying. And that’s really the point, donchyaknow?!?!

    • elliesmom says:

      It’s been my experience that most black women put their “blackness” ahead of their womanhood even in the face of blatant sexism from black men. Remember the correct position for a black woman in the civil rights movement was “prone”. Rosa Parks is the only woman’s name from the civil rights movement most school children ever hear, but black women were the strength behind the civil rights movement. They were the ones who organized the marchers, fed the men, and marched along beside them holding the hands of their children to keep them safe. They raised a lot of the money. But when it came time to make the speeches, they had no voice. They still don’t. But if any white woman even hints it might be more beneficial to them to put their womanhood first, we get accused of hating their black sons. I know. I’ve tried it. in a world of “intersectionality”, their womanhood always gives the right of way to their race. So if they have to deal with the patriarchy of the black culture, I’m going to assume it’s largely from choice.

      • 1539days says:

        And Rosa Parks stole her idea from another Black woman who was arrested for keeping her seat on the bus.

        Oprah made all her money off middle class White woman and even she chose blackness in 2008. She lost untold billions from it, too, because that basically ended her show.

        • DeniseVB says:

          Haven’t heard much from Oprah lately have we ? While I’ll always admire her climb to the top, I’ll never forgive her for being so stupid to support Obama in ’08. Would she have hired him to run Harpo?

      • 49erDweet says:

        Dyed in the wool feminists are the same. As are all career-obsessed persons as they drive around. Gardeners see unmowed lawns. Body shop workers see all the dents. Cops see speeders. Bus drivers see waiting passengers. It’s why my honey hates taking rides with me. Too many jobs.🙂

    The Screws Tighten Around Hillary Clinton

    Valerie Jarrett, who first put the screws to Hillary Clinton by leaking information about her e-mail problems, appears to be tightening them.


    • 1539days says:

      I can imagine all the websites that are fronts for prostitution having to close shop.

      Seriously, though. This is why I hate libertarians. Promoting drugs and sex is promoting their brand. The true lack of freedom, from federal control, regulation and tax policy is more important than the prostitution thing. Even worse, sex and drugs are just going to hide the harsh realities that should make us stand up and take action. It’s bread and circuses.

  25. DeniseVB says:

    Ugh, this story won’t go away. For the record, I sided with Marcy’s Dinner. Too many years of paying babysitters to go out for a nice date night meal only to have screaming kids ruin it for us…..


    • leslie says:

      It took 70 minutes from the time they entered the diner until their food arrived at their table. I do not side with the Diner. Nor do I side with the parents – they could have asked for something (cereal for example) for their 21 month old tot. There were many different opportunities to deflect the situation from escalating on both the parents and on the eatery.
      I also don’t know what “fussy” means to this author. But I can tell you that I had baby #3 who had extreme difficulty managing outbursts from the time she was born. (now we know what this is, but not at that time)
      I left plenty of restaurants with the baby while the rest of the family – and the other patrons – ate their meals in peace.

      • 1539days says:

        I’m saying this as a non-parent, but it seems like a gamble to take your kid to a diner you haven’t been to instead of, say, a McDonald’s. In that place, you can get hotcakes in like 2 minutes. That’s the great thing about chains, consistent standards.

        • leslie says:

          I agree that a chain may be preferable. But chains are not always around and in some locations, they don’t exist. Where my sister lives, they don’t permit chain restaurants to operate. Where I lived, there were no chain restaurants in walking distance, but there were several decent dine-in places where families were more than welcome. It’s just that this particular child (#3) had and still has difficulty managing emotional outbursts (autism spectrum child) which made it very difficult for family fun.
