"Dear Democrats, Doesn't Clinton Embarrass You?"

Tyler Durden's picture

Following yesterday's FBI headlines, James Freeman's question to Democrats "doesn't Hillary Clinton embarrass you?" seems even more appropriate:

Authored by James Freeman, originally posted at The Wall Street Journal,

Donald Trump wears his character flaws on his sleeve. Hillary Clinton seeks to prevent documentation of hers, even when the law requires it. Yet despite her best efforts, facts about Mrs. Clinton that are now public should trouble voters more than any of Mr. Trump’s remarks.

Not that it’s easy for Republicans to appear on a ballot with Mr. Trump, especially since media folk spend days after each controversial remark demanding responses from other GOP candidates. The objective is to force them to endorse or condemn Mr. Trump and suffer the consequences.

Fair enough, but reporters don’t force down-ballot Democrats to take a position on each new Clinton email revelation. The result is wall-to-wall media coverage focused on whether GOP voters can possibly support their candidate. But why should Republicans have all the fun? Democratic voters have every right to be ashamed of their nominee.

We’ll review some of the reasons in a moment, but first let’s consider the importance of party loyalty in this year’s presidential election. In recent polls, Mr. Trump often leads among independents. But he generally trails overall because Mrs. Clinton enjoys stronger support among Democrats than Mr. Trump does among Republicans—or because pollsters don’t believe Republicans will turn out and therefore include many more Democrats than Republicans in their survey samples.

Clearly Mr. Trump needs more Republicans to support him. This could happen if holdout Republicans break his way or if some Democrats decide they can’t stomach another era of Clinton scandals.

History says it will probably have to be the former. Bill Clinton rallied his party and survived an impeachment vote in the 1990s not by disproving the charges against him, but by dedicating himself to partisan goals. Once he agreed to abandon entitlement reform, Democratic support in the Senate was rock solid.

Similarly, at the final debate last week Mrs. Clinton made no effort to embrace centrist policies. She called for higher taxes, expanded entitlements and an activist Supreme Court to impose strict limits on liberties enumerated in the Bill of Rights. Mrs. Clinton is speaking exclusively to the left wing of her party. Mr. Trump, for his part, deviates from many Republicans on trade and immigration but has otherwise embraced a growth agenda of lower taxes and regulatory relief for an economy that sorely needs it.

Beyond policy considerations, voters across the political spectrum should consider what it would mean to ratify Mrs. Clinton’s institutionalization of political corruption. We now know from emails published by WikiLeaks that before Mrs. Clinton formally launched her campaign, she arranged for the king of Morocco to donate $12 million to Clinton Foundation programs.

What’s significant about the Morocco case is that for years the Clintons peddled the fiction that donors write checks simply to support wondrous acts of Clintonian charity. But that cover story isn’t available here. Mrs. Clinton’s trusted aide Huma Abedin put it in writing: The Moroccans agreed to the deal on the condition that Mrs. Clinton would participate at a conference in their country.

Panicked Clinton-campaign aides persuaded Mrs. Clinton to avoid such a trip before launching her candidacy—and the foundation got the king to settle for Bill and Chelsea Clinton. But the record is clear. The king wanted the access, influence and prestige that all strongmen crave from legitimate democracies.

This wasn’t the first time the Clintons satisfied such a desire while collecting megadonations. When it comes to human rights, Kazakhstan’s dictator, Nursultan Nazarbayev, makes Morocco’s king look enlightened. In power since 1991 and never freely elected, Mr. Nazarbayev must have enjoyed the sensation of Mr. Clinton endorsing him to lead an international election-monitoring group in 2005.

The Kazakh strongman knows how to return a favor, and he granted valuable mining concessions to Clinton Foundation donors. The donors then built a global uranium powerhouse that was eventually sold to the Russians in a deal that required the 2010 approval of a U.S. government committee that included Mrs. Clinton’s State Department. To put the cherry on this sundae, the Clintons violated their promise to the Obama administration by failing to publicly identify all the foundation donors.

A cache of emails, recently made public via a Freedom of Information Act lawsuit filed by the Republican National Committee, exposes another fiction at the heart of the Clinton Foundation. Clinton aides have long asserted that nobody received preferential treatment from Secretary Clinton’s State Department as a result of foundation donations. Yet emails show the State Department giving special access to “FOBs” (Friends of Bill Clinton) or “WJC VIPs” (William Jefferson Clinton VIPs) identified by foundation staff.

WikiLeaks has revealed a draft 2011 report on Clinton Foundation governance from the Simpson Thacher & Bartlett law firm. The document notes that the foundation had a conflict-of-interest policy for directors, officers and key employees and a separate conflict-of-interest policy for other employees. “It appears that neither policy has been implemented,” reported the lawyers.

Of course not. Conflict of interest is the Clinton business model. And political influence is the product. That’s how Hillary and Bill managed to gross more than a Rolling Stones tour by delivering speeches. Looking at how successful Mrs. Clinton and her husband were in monetizing her position as secretary of state, why would any voter, of any party, want to see how much revenue she can squeeze from the Oval Office?

Voters who wish to reject the Clintonization of America’s governing institutions have a choice on Nov. 8. They can feel good about themselves by writing in the name of a third-party candidate. Or they can do right by the country by selecting the only person who can stop the Clintons: a very flawed candidate named Donald Trump.

You are a serial spammer and a serial pain in the ass. Might I politely suggest that you go fuck yourself? And get a life.

Your MO, always the same, is to post a provocative comment which SEEMS to be relevant but you have no interest in joining the discussion (and NEVER do) and your sole objective is to mislead readers into clicking on your falsified links to your BS site. That wastes everyones time is blatant SPAMMING.

Apologies to regular ZHers because I do understand these posts of mine can be irritating also, but I am donating my time to expose this shithead for the benefit of the ZH community. Please just skip over my easily recognisable posts when you see them.

Is this fiction, or is it what will happen in the next few days as the Temple of Mammon falls upon them?


Given the fact that the Statute of Limitations in some crimes committed by the Hillary Liberal Elitist Bigots are without end, Obama will end up pardoning all the Democrat criminals. Whether it occurs after the election, or before, now rests on what happens in the next few days with the newly discovered Huma emails on her husband's laptop.

If these are the missing emails, Obama will have no choice but to pardon everyone immediately, including himself. He has to move faster than the law enforcement officers seeking arrest warrants. They have been shamed, and now they need - because that is their pyschological makeup - to re-establish their credibility, and professional pride.

Please note Comey was insubordinate to Lynch by issuing the letter to congress in defiance of Lynch's "request" that he follow DOJ policy to not issue anything whatesoever so close to an election. He deliberately set himself up to be fired; cowards do that to avoid responsibility for the disasters they cause - in this case, the total destruction of any respect for the FBI.

So Lynch has no choice whatsoever but to re-establish her command and control of her FBI. He's history.

The way this is breaking is an excellent example of "History doesn't repeat itself, but it does rhyme." What I am seeing is Nixon's "Saturday Night Massacre" writ in gigantic letters for our time.

There are differences in names, however, the principles are the same:

1) It's all about covering up massive crimnal activity.

2) Everybody connected to the president, and his heir apparent is prison-bound.

3) They all have one of three choices: A} Skip the country to one which will not extradite them; B} Duke it out in court; C} Obama pardons everyone. For Hillary, that means while they can still impeach her (if she won), she will never go to jail.

4) My sources in DC tell me that yesterday (Friday, Oct. 28, 2016) Hillary went nuclear hydrogen bomb out-of-control, either at, or about, Huma. Hillary said either, "I could kill her," or I'm going to kill her."

Huma knows way too much - as Hillary's lesbian lover she has been the garbage can where Hillary dumps all her trash. Sarcastically, I can say that, "nobody could see this coming." (Believers didn't know what, how, or when, but they do know "God will not be mocked.")

Huma is either D} In the hands of the Clintons, getting shipped out of the US to the MIddle East, or she is now shark chum; B} In an FBI Safe House; E} In Obama's hands, courtesy of the Moslem Brotherhood - so stay tuned if that is true; F} Huma is flying solo, because she knows any of those will kill her if that is expedient.

Back to the Pardon option, I expect it will be issued immediately, meaning within a week if things keep vaporizing all around them - even Hillary's Press Whore Corps is rethinking its own prostitution and what it means.

Either before, or after, expect to hear, and see, this possibility play out:

Obama will read from the TOTUS, "We need to put an end to this rancor and divisiveness. Let me be clear: All of those I've pardoned are true American heroes and heroines; their service to the country merits this action, and so I'm taking it today to put an end to these lies and insane conspiracy theories.

"However, the criminal actions of Donald Trump, and his cadre of fellow treasonous revolutionaries requires that I, as Chief Magistrate, move immediately to arrest this cabal of Russian agents, and refer this to the SECRET COURT, the secret US Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court, which I, as a Constitutional scholar and law professor, am proud to inform you is modeled after the oldest example of this court found in our English legal heritage, the Star Chamber.

"There, you can count of justice swift, justice sure. These agents of Putin's intended to take-over, and take-away, your freedoms. Instead, they will be tried with the strictest adherence to the law; that means that just as its ancestor the Star Chamber acted unencumbered by public exhibition, so too does this secret US court.

"They will be secretly arrested, with a secret warrant, making secret charges, by secret officers, imprisoned in a secret jail, and undergo a secret trial, with secret rules of procedure, and secret rulings of constitutional law, kept secret by the secret government attorneys who will secretly prosecute and secretly act as their secret Public Defenders - since none of their private attorneys possess the level of secret clearance necessary to participate in the trial, where Trump and his outlaw, sexual predator gangsters, will be prohibited from attending their secret trial because they do not possess the secret clearances necessary to hear the secret laws, secret rulings, secret testimony, secret verdict, secret sentence, carried out at a secret prison, in a secret location, overseen by secret jailers, enforcing secret jail policies, for a secret amount of time as ordered by the secret court.

"Because of their criminal activities, I will also request the secret court to issue a secret Writ of Mandamus ordering the members of the Electoral College to cast their votes for Hillary Clinton.

"In addition, to ensure that no secret Congressional supporters of Trump's criminal organization decide to discuss this in the Well of the House or the Senate, where the Constitution protects them from arrest for what they say, I will also seek a secret court order of Quo Warranto as to their attending the sessions of the House or Senate. They can't step into the Well if they can't attend the sessions.

"They will be held secretly by secret officers of the secret court to ensure they are available for the secret court so that these secretly accused individuals can secretly appear before the secret court for their own secret hearing before the court, again understanding that they do not have the secret clearances necessary to actually attend the secret court's secret hearings, and therefore, they will be represented by secret Public Defenders working secretly for the government.

"How long this takes, and the schedule of the court's docket will be a secret, as will be all other information about the secretly accused congressional members. Because this is all covered by a secret Executive Order I secretly signed and secretly published for the information of a secret list of secret people who have a secret need to know criteria, you can trust me to adhere to the law, and carry out its every provision in secret."

"One other point to make you feel safe, and let you get back to the truly important things going on now in America - the race for Number One in College Football, letting men use the women's restroom, bringing segregation back to life with segregated housing and segregated areas on public university campuses, to name the top issues - let me remind you that no state or federal judge, including any Justice of the US Supreme Court - and that applies to the Chief Justice as well, has all the secret clearances necessary to see everything that happens in the secret US Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court.

"They can't see the secret testimony, the secret arguments about the law in front of the court, the secret rulings by the court, including their secret rulings on constitutional law. Nobody, at any level of our judicial system, can see what the secret court does.

"And even if they could, it wouldn't matter, because any ruling they make on any secret ruling of the secret court will have to remain a secret. This is already happening; this is not new, or just a theory - the Department of Justice now sits on dozens of secret laws, and secret rulings of constitutional law, and the court's secret verdicts, secret court orders - everything they do is secret! How can you appeal a secret court's ruling if you can't know what the law, or the ruling of the court, or the secret law or constitutional interpretation the secret court is secretly acting under is . . . ?

"You can't! Because it's secret! It's all secret! The secrets are secret! The secrets about the secrets are secret! It's Alice in Wonderland talking to the Cheshire Cat - everything the secret court does, just disappears!

"Ha, ha, ha, ha . . . A secret Star Chamber is what it is. Ha, ha, ha, ha . . . This is all just such a hoot. It's completely insane! A secret court called legal under a constitution that guarantees public trials! Ha, ha, ha, ha  . . . Oh, I just can't stop laughing! Talk about the Theater of Insanity ruling the country . 

"OK, I'll come down from this unbridled mania. But you have to admit, to think that every judge out there is so sold-out, so interested in jacking up the system, such life-time appointed lunatics - tell the world that the most obvious, twisted-up mental gymnastics pretending to be rational, complete and total violation of the constitution passes constitutional muster . . . It's true: The psychotic sociopathic insane inmates are running the asylum.

"Excuse me for laughing . . . OK, I'm done. I promise to be good.

"But it's no secret that the secret court can do anything it wants to do . . . Because everything it does . . . Is secret!

"That means these criminals will have no appeal process that means anything, since anything the government deems too secret for a federal district court, or appeals court, or the US Supreme Court to see, will be withheld from them - all of them! It's secret! The US Supreme Court is just an impotent group of mental maturbators, prissy frauds - how can anyone justify a secret court in a legal system whose constitutional gurantees open courts!

"So don't you folks worry about this again, in fact, I'm declaring tonight's speech a secret, so if you don't want to go to jail for violating the secret laws of the secret court - never say a word, or show a video of this speech, or circulate a transcript, or do anything else that lets anyone know about these secrets I secretly discussed with you.

"You didn't know I could do that, did you? Yeah, it's been my little secret. But now you know, so if you say even one syllable of this to anyone, you'll go to a secret jail in the middle of the night! You'll never be seen again - and it's all secretly legal!

"Oh, and by the way, that includes my favorite prostitutes: the main stream media. How many times did I tell you to your face that you belong to me? So now the Piper is goping to get pasid. Hope you enjoyed pretending you were part of the club! You aren't, you never were, and you never will be members. You're just whores - and after you've rendered your services, you get thrown out into the street. We don't have, and never will have, any respect for whores.

"Just relax, keep your mouth shut, don't show up at any protests against the political establishment - just do your job, give us your money, let us tell you how to live your life, and you'll get to stay inside your hovel - uh, I mean home - keep taking meds, and everything will just be peachy.

"What happens will be the government's little secret. And you know that you can trust the government to follow the law, arrest those who break it, and use this occasion to let everyone know - once and forever - that anything we do is a secret.

"Keep your mouth shut, or the next sound you hear will be the jail door shutting behind you.

"Good night, and Allah Akbar!"


 Anybody here stupid enough to believe it can't happen . . . secretly?

It's funny too. They have no one to blame but themselves for choosing her. They had another candidate who was extremely popular and completely free of scandals, who would be able to focus solely on his message - moar free shit for everyone, and they instead chose this corrupt warmongering insider, and then act surprised when all of this pops up. No, I'm not saying I like sanders, whose policies is nearly all areas are diametrically opposed to my own.

Former United States Attorney General Michael Mukasey tells MSNBC that not only is Hillary Clinton's private email server illegal, it "disqualifies" her from holding any federal office. Very specifically points to one federal law, Title 18. Section 2071.For those of us who do not have United States Code committed to memory, here's what it says:"(a) Whoever willfully and unlawfully conceals, removes, mutilates, obliterates, or destroys, or attempts to do so, or, with intent to do so takes and carries away any record, proceeding, map, book, paper, document, or other thing, filed or deposited with any clerk or officer of any court of the United States, or in any public office, or with any judicial or public officer of the United States, shall be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than three years, or both. (b) Whoever, having the custody of any such record, proceeding, map, book, document, paper, or other thing, willfully and unlawfully conceals, removes, mutilates, obliterates, falsifies, or destroys the same, shall be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than three years, or both; and shall forfeit his office and be disqualified from holding any office under the United States. As used in this subsection, the term "office" does not include the office held by any person as a retired officer of the Armed Forces of the United States."Yes, it explicitly states "shall forfeit his office and be disqualified from holding any office under the United States.”; This is the link to the law:

Yes, but now we are back to the question of INTENT, that is the excuse Comey used for letting her off the hook, He claimed the FBI could not find evidence of intent. Now I believe these weiner e-mails may contain something which proves intent and Comey is no longer gonna be a bitch for Hillary

Comey may have reopened the case to thwart FOIA requests. Now for an important and brief message from this station:

Correct. Key word is intent. Hillary intentionally made a decision to use a private server. Therefore, if she made this intentional decision, there was intent.

Someone asked a woman how she could vote for Trump, a “misogynist, a racist and a bigot”.
  Here is her answer: 
  • Because I use my head to research and find out what candidates really are, not what the media wants me to think.
  • Because Donald Trump has more women in executive and managerial positions than any comparable company, which tells me he is not a misogynist.
  • Because he pays these women the same or more than their male counterparts, which tells me looks for capacity and skills in people, not color, gender or race.
  • Because he fought the West Palm Beach City Council to be able to open his newly purchased club, so he could include blacks and Jews as members, who had been banned until then. This tells me he is not a racist.
  • Because he has raised wonderful children who have turned out to be outstanding, hard working and compassionate adults. He must be doing something right.
  • Because his economic plans makes sense, are conservative in nature, and I vote based of what is best for my family, my friends and my country.
  • Because everybody, the left and the right are afraid of him, the media is trying to destroy his image, and even foreign governments are voicing their opinions, so he must be doing something right. Clean house maybe?
  • Because I want a Supreme Court that will uphold the Constitution, not behave as minions of the administration.  I have had enough with judges who are more like political activists than law enforcers.  
  • Because I fear for my family’s safety if the current trend of not confronting blatant terrorism continues – which is a threat to our way of life.
  • Because I am fed up with the rampant corruption of this administration.  Accountability in government is paramount, and as this administration has demonstrated, it is a foreign concept to them.
  • Because I am fed up with the political correctness gone wild, and because Trump is not afraid to say what everybody thinks but does not dare to say. A thug is a thug, regardless of color, and that's it.
  • Because it is about time someone puts America's interests ahead of other countries.
  • Because I know he recognizes and embraces America's exceptionalism, and will not tour the World apologizing for who we are. That tells me he is a patriot.
  • Because, unlike HRC, he has actually held a job, worked hard and achieved success.
  • And last, but not least,because I am more offended by what Hillary does than by what Trump says.

Actually the main ploy in Syria is the fact that Israel has annexed the Golan Heights.  In order to keep them and then to steal the oil and gas that's there, they need to destroy Assad and run most of the SYRIANS out-of-the-country. Then Israel can continue to annex the rest of Syria. It's called the Greater Israel project! We have spent trillions to maintain Israel's nuclear monopoly in the middle east! We have also sent tens of thousands of young Americans as "cannon FODDER" to die for Greater Israel, Hillarys first loyalty!
