Woman Arrested After Throwing Shoe At Hillary Clinton

Tyler Durden's picture


At first we though this is AP's version of Thursday humor however upon close examination it turned out to be all too real. Moments ago a woman was taken under arrest after throwing what she described as a shoe at the person who may well be America's next president, Hillary Clinton, during a Las Vegas speech.

The incident happened moments after Clinton took the stage Thursday at an Institute of Scrap Recycling Industries meeting at the Mandalay Bay hotel-casino. Clinton ducked but did not appear to be hit by the object, and then joked about the incident.


Security ushered out a woman who said she threw a shoe but didn't identify herself to reporters or explain the action. Authorities said the woman would be arrested.


The former U.S. secretary of state and Democratic senator from New York has been traveling the country giving paid speeches to industry organizations and appearing before key Democratic Party constituents.

The act caught on tape:


Of course, the shoe-throwing assailant had little chance of hitting her mark. After all Hillary has extensive experience with ducking and covering away from flying projectiles, most recently in "liberated" Egypt where her motorcade was pelted by a "Monica"-chanting crowd with both flying shoes...


... and tomatoes.

When the shoes start flying at Presidents or Presidential Candidates, it is usually around the time of a major, long term crisis (socially, economically & politically) - the last time shoes flew at Shrub, ZeroBama was on deck to become the next TOTUS.

My Taleb style deep OTM puts are doing really well, initiated about 4 weeks ago.

The economy is on the verge of the type and depth of a meltdown that can't be ignored by the media, asset "markets," the financial sector or the general public.

The middle and working class are being hit with a triple whammy of real, high pernicious inflation, stagnant or declining real wages, massive tax/permit/license/other tax increases, and have dug deeper into debt to cope since 2007 (consumer debt is now at new, all time, record highs), and it's causing them to leverage way up with debt again while their real purchasing power is being destroyed (the blew a big wad of debt buying homes, especially cars, tuition, medical bills, etc. over the last 5 years).

There are more debt serfs in the U.S. (and globally) now than there were at the worst levels of the 2008-2009 meltdown. The only thing central banks did was paper over the crisis, manipulate asset classes through fiat-flation, dig governments, consumers and corporations (it's true, look at corporate bond issuances) deeper into debt than ever before.

The next meltdown, which is already underway, can't be be kicked down the road by fiat printing/deficit monetization - Happy 4.2 trillion USD balance sheet (as of today), Yellen!

I genuinely believe we're headed for a very similar pattern seen last in the 1933 to 1940ish period. Bring out your dead!:

Chinese Economy

U.S. Economy

Japanese Economy

EU Member States (already dead with exception of Germany and small northern states)

Brazilian Economy

Indian Economy

Australian Economy

Canadian Economy

Even South Korean Economy is beginning to take on deep water

There once was an ugly old shrew
Who narrowly avoided a shoe
Regaining composure
She made no disclosure
Of her panties now soiled with pooh

With no apologies to Limerick King, fuck him.

Was that Ann Colter?

Seriously it looked just like her.

Added:  The woman dropped a piece of paper that appeared to be "a copy of a Department of Defense document labeled confidential and dated August 1967; it referred to an operation "Cynthia" in Bolivia."

W. T. F.

Che was captured and then executed in Bolivia in 1967.     Operation Cynthia?

In the Morning! Though, I may append that sentence to read: "...Empire of rape, theft, imprisonment, destruction, lies, manipulation, and death."--just to drive the point home. There is definitely a smoking ear moment when they realize how unbelievably evil she is. All it takes is a showing of "We came. We saw. He died <maniacal laughter>." to begin the journey.

this woman did something very herioc in my mind.  not only did she take a stand, but she did it in a way that belittles the monsters.  If she did something violent, she would be demonized as a terrorist.   But throwing a shoe is brilliant.  the point is clear, and done in a way that average people can get behind and not feel like criminals...

this kind of thing crosses ethnic lines. remember, the whole crosses and shrines thing along the highways at the site of fatal car accidents was a south american indian thing form the mining operations w dangerous roadways. Now, WASPs are doing it across USA.

Just sayin'.

Throwing a shoe.  Isn't that an Islamic thing to do?  As I understand, it is one of the greatest Islamic insults.  Perhaps showing the bottom of your feet to a person is worse.  Or maybe it is offering someone the hand used to wipe one's fanny - that would be "sinistral" in the Caliphate, would it not?

But to the point.  Ever since Obama made Sharia the law of the land through execucive order, the throwing of shoes is now an expression of religion and free speech under islamic doctrine and US doctrine.  There is no crime here.  There can be no crime here.  The only crime would have been not hitting her.....well....I can't say that.

Now she knows how "W" felt.
