Run, Hillary, Run
National Review Online, by Kyle Smith

Original Article

Posted By:Pluperfect, 10/12/2018 5:09:06 AM

Can you feel the excitement? Hillary Clinton is in The Atlantic, telling us how democracy is in crisis. She is on CNN, telling Christiane Amanpour that only when Democrats win back both the House and the Senate, “that’s when civility can start again.” (Snip)Consider how Hillary Clinton is the embodiment of the Democratic party: Age: Hillary Clinton is 70. She, 69-year-old Elizabeth Warren, 75-year-old Joe Biden, and 77-year-old Bernie Sanders are the party’s liveliest, most dynamic figures, right up there with its Capitol Hill leaders: 78-year-old Nancy Pelosi, 79-year-old Steny Hoyer, and 85-year-old Dianne Feinstein, who is running for reelection.

They can´t con the world out of money anymore so they´re both back to the original con - Charge their empty headed followers $750 to listen to their communist ideals.

Now that there´s jobs available, that´s $750/head to be had for their pockets.

FTA;"Charging $750 for tickets to listen in on a conversation that will presumably rail against economic inequality is the kind of move we have grown to expect from the party of the Beverly Hills Bolshies and the Mercedes Marxists."

Back in the early days of PT Barnum, you had to wait a full minute for one fool to be born.

FTA: "If the party is going to reimplement the New Deal, why shouldn’t it be led by people who lived through it? There are a lot of bewildering technological changes happening, and we need astute, calming leaders who can tell us what it was like when the radio was invented."

HA HA HA !!!

Taking an overall view of the 2020 opposition Trump is facing :-
Crazy Uncle Joe - Empty suit picked up from the garbage heap by another empty suit. These guys are giving coat hangers a bad name.
Hillary - Still corrupt, still criminal, still crooked. Can you imagine Huma as Chief of Staff? Also, female interns being chased by two Presidents instead of just one?
Socialist Bernie - Can he spell Venezuela? This guy is so old he honeymooned in Moscow when the other Uncle Joe was sending people to the Gulag!
But wait, (as they say) there is more.
Pocahontas - Senator from where the sun don´t shine. Wonder where she put that DNA kit.
Spartacus - Cory the Groper. Actually, a wonderful addition to the ticket with Uncle Joe. Twenty fingers and all that.
Mad Dog Harris - Does wonders to rabies vaccine stocks whenever she opens her foul mouth. Could they run her outside the People´s Republic? Maybe a leash will help.
I wouldn´t lose any sleep if I were Donald.

Pres Clinton must be surely be in some kind of dementia to get anywhere near his wife in public. What little legacy he has left-he was smart enough to move to the center-his wife is happy destroying. Whatever deal they made with the devil long, long ago, is now in the process of having to be payoff.
Oh do, run, run, Hillary!

"Run, Hillary, Run"?

Why? So Rich Lowry and National Review can try to elect her again? So Bill Kristol and The Weekly Standard can help?

If we´d listened to Never Trump NR, Hillary would automatically be running because she would already be the incumbent President of the United States.

Three things need to happen before I´ll take National Review off the shelf again. First, they need to write the editorial that is really needed: "We Were Wrong." Second, they need to emphatically endorse President Trump, who has delivered more for conservatives than four decades of GOP get-alongism and NR smart talk. Third, at the end of that editorial, the current editors of National Review need to publish their own resignations. The Never Trumpers were inexcusably wrong, almost irreparably damaged our country, and permanently destroyed their own credibility.

They need to be replaced.

Hillary is an easy target the literal and figurative size of a the side of a barn but it´s still grimly fascinating to hear her declare her bizarre, twisted view of the world and what the function of government is after she´s been locked away in green rooms and private quarters for 30 years.

As Smith points out, she apparently actually believes that bureaucracy achieves anything and that every American is straining at the leash to get to the polls to vote for more regulation of every little thing.

Honestly, I find it very difficult to ever take National Review seriously again. How did so many brilliant guys get so dang stupid? Their obsession with NeverTrumpism got their heads so far up their butts that they really ought to rename their rag the National Rearview.

The rest of us poor dumb deplorables who voted for that barbarian? We´re STILL not tired of winning.

“You cannot be civil with a political party that wants to destroy what you stand for, what you care about,”

The problem with this is that no one knows what they stand for other than power, corruption and single payer healthcare.

The rats have no ideas or solutions for any of the issues that face this great country. What they want is to turn the United States into a third world tin pot socialist state where you have to wait in line for toilet paper. They want (except for them) income redistribution which will only make everyone poor. (except the ruling class).

Apparently considering their recent behavior they also are against due process and the rule of law. This means they decide who is guilty or innocent and they decide if a law was broken point a finger at you and you are automatically guilty and sent to their network of gulags.

I´m sorry but this type of rhetoric from the Dems these days needs to be condemned in the strongest terms as it will lead to violence.

They are starting to sound like the worst plantation owners who wanted to teach Lincoln a lesson back just before the election of 1860. That didn´t end well for them.

#11 just made my day. Let´s both go. We can hoist the Jolly Roger. In that spirit, and in honor of all the old L-Dotters, passed and present:

"Come, my friends,´tis not too late to seek a newer world... To sail beyond the sunset, and the baths of all the western stars... 

Tho´ much is taken, much abides; and tho´ we are not now that strength which in old days moved earth and heaven, that which we are, we are.

One equal temper of heroic hearts, made weak by time and fate, but strong in will

To strive, to seek, to find...

And not to yield."

-- Alfred, Lord Tennyson

The left is a target rich environment for President Trump. They could make millions to pay off the national debt if they charge to see debates with the likes of Hillary Clinton.
Hillary Clinton goes to Hollywood in that over sized oven mitt and Harvey Weinstein isn´t there. The FBI doesn´t have Comey, Peter Strozk and Lisa Page with their ´insurance policy´ and fake Steele dossier how is Hillary suppose to win? The coughing, stumbling falling down old hag will have to go it alone. Bill and Barack can´t even help her this time around.
How do you debate the likes of Kamala Harris the angry black woman and bug eyed Spatacus Corey Booker both of which their total IQs are in the double digits.

Few of us know our due date, but I hope that Mrs. Clinton lasts longer than 2020 and 2024, as unlikely as that may seem from appearances. And "runs" each of those times.
She has experience and wisdom as well as relative youth going for her.

Hillary Clinton barely beat not-a-Democrat Bernie for the 2016 Democrat nomination when Hillary had most superdelegates, DNC primary collusion, state party fund raising collusio, control of primary debates, President Obama support, FBI/DOJ spying collusion and Weinstein fund raising.

Hillary Clinton is unlikely to win the 2020 Democrat nomination featuring no superdelegates, no DNC primary collusion, no state party fundraising collusion, no control of debates, no President support, no FBI/DOJ collusion, Weinstein indicted and Hillary Clinton remains a toxic candidate, unlikable to the core.

Yes To Refunds, No To Audits: What To
Expect From IRS During The Shutdown
Forbes, by Kelly Phillips Erb    Original Article
Posted By: Pluperfect- 1/16/2019 5:38:40     Post Reply
As the shutdown rolls on, taxpayers have been left wondering: What does it mean for tax season? Earlier this month, the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) announced that tax season would open on time (January 28, 2019) and, in a departure from previous years, that tax refunds would be issued during the shutdown. Over the weekend, the IRS announced that Free File, a free online software program available through IRS.gov, was open for business even as IRS doors remain closed. Today, taxpayers finally received more information about what to expect from the IRS during the government shutdown.

From Fox News: The former top lawyer at the FBI has been under federal investigation for leaking to the media, a letter from House Republicans revealed Tuesday. The letter from GOP Reps.

Politics is cyclical. Republicans will not always hold the White House. Democrats will be back. If only they realized now the threats to our democracy that presently are being institutionalized. Threats that will endanger them and their future leaders terribly — and all of us. When “progressives” had Woodrow Wilson and Franklin Roosevelt in power, did they ever imagine a Reagan Revolution? During Reagan’s fabulously successful conservative presidency, could anyone have imagined a radical-left Wasted Obama Decade? When Obama was at his height, with commanding control of the House and a filibuster-proof Senate, could anyone have predicted fearlessly that America

‘Superstar’ DEA agent made millions

A “superstar” DEA agent secretly fueled a lavish lifestyle by skimming cash from Colombian cocaine traffickers through a multimillion-dollar scam that officials say is turning into one of the worst scandals in the agency’s history, according to a report Tuesday. Jose Irizarry, who resigned after being recalled from his post in Colombia, was recently identified in court papers as a co-conspirator of a former DEA informant who pleaded guilty to money laundering in Florida, according to the Associated Press. Profits from the scheme helped Irizarry, 44, buy a Land Rover and a home in Cartagena, the Colombian resort city

Last week I wrote about a homeless camp in Seattle near the I-5 freeway, just one of the hundreds (the current estimate is 400) in the Seattle area. After two months of complaints from local business owners and residents about threats, trash, and rodents, the city’s Navigation Team came to remove the residents and clean up the mess. Today a columnist for My Northwest reports a new tent is already up at the freshly cleared site: It hasn’t even been a full week, but a previously-cleared homeless encampment is returning to a north Seattle neighborhood… The encampment was cleared,

Beto O´Rourke mocked after offering

Former Texas Senate candidate Beto O´Rourke faced across-the-board criticism on Tuesday after an unflattering interview in The Washington Post portrayed him as equivocal and unsure on a variety of substantive policy issues. O´Rourke, 46, is widely considered a possible 2020 presidential contender, after falling only a few percentage points shy of dethroning incumbent Texas GOP Sen. Ted Cruz in the 2018 midterm elections. But his relative lack of experience and expertise has emerged as a central objection to his prospective candidacy. Speaking to Johnson in El Paso, Texas, O´Rourke added fuel to those concerns by repeatedly demurring

As a new caravan that began in Honduras and quickly swelled to an estimated 2,000 people made its way toward Mexico on Tuesday, Mexicans who live along the border towns that will likely be most affected took to the Internet to lash out against another wave of migrants. “Work?

The FBI’s ‘Trump treason’ probe flunked civics

The FBI took it upon itself to determine whether the president of the United States is a threat to national security. No one had ever before thought that this was an appropriate role for the FBI, a subordinate agency in the executive branch, but President Trump isn’t the only one in Washington trampling norms. The New York Times reported the astonishing news. “Counter-intelligence investigators,” the paper writes, “had to consider whether the president’s own actions constituted a possible threat to national security.” US presidents over the decades have made many foolhardy decisions that have undermined our security; never before have they

Gov. John Kasich, R-Ohio, took office as a Tea Party hero, unafraid of the union bosses and welfare lobbyists who would fight his efforts to shrink Ohio´s bloated government. He leaves as an honorary union member who was inducted to a hospital lobbying group’s Hall of Fame. Kasich beat incumbent Democratic Gov. Ted Strickland in 2010 by promising to deliver job growth with smaller government, labor reform, and opposition to Obamacare. Kasich “was in the Tea Party before there was a Tea Party,” he said during the campaign, leveraging a reputation for fiscal conservatism built

Despite the fact that President Trump has fired almost every big gun he has, his battle with congressional Democrats over funding the construction of a wall on the U.S.-Mexico border has been stalemated. He will probably lose the fight. The partial government shutdown, the longest ever, is in its fourth week. Despite his fondness for governance by Twitter, Trump made his first ever Oval Office speech on Tuesday night intending to rally Americans to his cause. The speech lasted less than ten minutes, and in delivering it Trump’s performance was lackluster. He didn’t exhibit any of the passion

Has President Trump suckered Democrats and the Deep State into a trap that will enable a radical downsizing of the federal bureaucracy? In only 5 more days of the already-“longest government shutdown in history” (25 days and counting, as of today), a heretofore obscure threshold will be reached, enabling permanent layoffs of bureaucrats furloughed 30 days or more. Don’t believe me that federal bureaucrats can be laid off?

In recent days, many online essays have rightly ripped apart Gillette´s ugly new "We Believe" advertisement. One online critic dubbed it "feel-bad liberalism."

"The guy at the ad agency" is actually philosophically unpleasant feminist Kim Gehrig.

Gillette´s new ad, browbeating men through a #MeToo and "toxic masculinity" pitch, supposedly to persuade men to buy their razors, is so revolting it´s possible to think it´s satire. There is also a 30-second version, which doesn´t even seem to be about selling razors: Seriously, did a spy from Schick get into the Procter & Gamble´s advertising agency and concoct an ad very sure to turn potential customers off? Who would want to buy that after such a string of insults? Isn´t ad rule number one to not insult the customer? Well, this one does.

"Sadly, given the security concerns and unless government re-opens this week, I suggest that we work together to determine another suitable date after government has re-opened for this address or for you to consider delivering your State of the Union address in writing to the Congress on January 29th," Pelosi wrote in a letter to Trump.

In the past two months, Ruth Bader Ginsburg has fractured three ribs and had two cancerous nodules removed from her left lung. She was absent from oral argument last week and will miss this week’s arguments as well. Doctors say they expect her to be back on the bench in February, and until then she will review transcripts from her home and participate in the court’s decision-making remotely. But her return to work has not quieted critics who say that Ginsburg should have retired long ago and that her health issues are the latest evidence that justices should not be

According to the family, Jayden, a biological male, likes dresses and hates "everything about being a boy." The little boy´s "step-dad," Greg Rogers, is a 27-year-old biological female who now identifies as a male. The child’s mother is a 21-year-old woman named Jody. Both Jodi and Greg are furious that concerned citizens (referred to as “trolls” by many U.K.-based outlets) have reported them to social services for apparent child abuse. The couple, however, maintain Jayden — who is on

Are you a man? That is to say, are you a genetic male who also happens to identify as a "man," for some increasingly antiquated reason?

Our society has come a long way in shaming men for behaving in any way that anybody anywhere doesn´t like, and reminding men that we´re all complicit even if we don´t behave that way. But it´s not nearly enough. The mere fact of maleness is shameful and problematic. Men and boys everywhere need

It’s tough to tell. Does this make the shutdown a bug … or a feature? Nancy Pelosi has asked Donald Trump to put off his State of the Union speech to the joint session of Congress until after the funding issues have been resolved: (Copy of Letter/Tweet) And with that, the new Speaker of the House just made the best case possible for a perpetual shutdown. Kidding! What I meant to say was that Nancy Pelosi has finally sounded a note of wisdom, at least in her reminder that presidents used to just deliver a report in writing to Congress.

For the last 35 years, the snowpack in the West’s mountains has resisted the impacts of global warming. But that could soon change, according to a new study out of Oregon State University. The study, published in the journal Geophysical Research Letters, found that although climate change should have caused a steep decrease in snowpack, naturally occurring, decades-long weather variations shielded the Cascades, Sierras and Rockies from some of the effects. Although snow stations have recorded some decline, it hasn’t been statistically significant. But according to the study, without this natural weather variation, snowpack in Oregon could have declined

Former Rep. Beto O’Rourke recently questioned the modern-day relevance of the U.S. Constitution and whether the country should still be governed by “the same principles that were set down 230-plus years ago.” “I think that’s the question of the moment: Does this still work?” Mr. O’Rourke asked during a taped conversation with two friends, which he aired to thousands in response to President Trump’s Oval Office address to the American people about the border wall, The Washington Post reported Tuesday. “Can an empire like ours with military presence in over 170 countries around the globe, with trading relationships
