Failed Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton revealed that her apology over her email scandal was made against her “better judgment.”The former first lady reflected on the apology for using an unauthorized email server during her tenure as secretary of state in a segment in “Hillary,” a new documentary released Friday on Hulu.(Photo) “We’ll just say what you did was a mistake. It was dumb. It’s over. And that will end it,” Clinton said about the controversy that plagued her 2016 presidential campaign.“I wasn’t convinced of that. But I understood the frustration of my campaign,” she said in the documentary about her life, according to the Washington Examiner.

It's obvious the democrats are getting their ducks in a row. Everyone but Biden and Bernie are dropping out. Hillary is in the news more than ever. Bill thought saying he was having anxiety would absolve him from sex in the Oval Office with Lewinski and no one is calling him on it. The nominee will be Biden who was pretty much pronounced dead a few years ago after a stroke. I've thought all along he was holding the place open for Hillary. I'm starting to worry I am right.

She won’t be there running mate. She will be the last minute nominee. She thought she had the election wrapped up in 2016. But the close states like Michigan, Pennsylvania, Ohio and Florida were her downfall. She will concentrate more fraudulent votes in those states which will be enough for her to swing the election. Do not underestimate her!

The promise (threat) of a Hillary takeover of the Presidency, a highly dubious constitutional hurdle to get over, is not going to result in a Biden landslide. Outside Washington circles there are not nearly enough Trump haters to make that happen.

I don't know who the Democrats are holding the candidacy open for, but neither of these 2 old men are physically fit to last 4 years in the Presidency. Biden has had 2 brain surgery's and has Afib. Bernie had a blockage and a heart attack. Neither are up to the stress's of the Presidency. Biden is showing signs of Dementia, and Bernie with his Trillions of Dollars Green dreams is completely insane. I suppose Birds of a feather flock together ---anyone who would vote for either of these two is also mentally ill.

If HRC is anywhere near the democrat ticket, it is evidence that the party has a death wish. They have distanced themselves from the traditions, values, and founding of this country so thoroughly that they are now embracing socialism as a governing principle. Americans do not want the government breathing down their necks and stealing their hard earned money assuming there will be any jobs left after they trash the economy with their insane virtue signaling policies. What worries me more than who they are running is what plans they have to cheat anyway they can to gain the advantage. These people will do anything to win and I think we can agree that their methods are sometimes deadly. Our party must get serious about protecting each and every vote. We cannot allow unlawful aliens to cast a vote in this election or George Soros voting machines to count our votes. I honestly don’t know what can be done other than making sure that you go vote and encourage other like minded voters to do the same. We must overwhelm them with numbers. The Deplorables must rise and protect this nation from corrupt greedy amoral politicians like HRC and the bots she will embed in the government to steal from us, control every aspect of our lives, and make a mockery out of the Constitution. If you have ever wanted to show your gratitude for this country, get out there and vote. It is much easier than trying to wrest control back from the dems if, God forbid, they should win. They intend to push us to the point of no return. We cannot allow that to happen. Pray hard and vote! We have the tool with which to beat these anti-American zealots. We have the right leader and all we need are massive numbers.

I don't agree with the VP slot for homeless bag lady Clinton. Biden is a sure loser that would be bludgeoned by President Trump. Homeless hag Clinton doesn't want another defeat because Biden is stupid with a low IQ to go with it. No, Hillary Clinton wants a straight up front runner race/rematch or nothing. Biden is just blowing smoke and making dust and the DNC will have to gamble on a win with the homeless bag lady Clinton or a Biden or Sanders sacrifice to President Trump. When you see a laundry truck leaving the Clinton driveway you'll know it will be chocked full of pant suits for cleaning and campaigning. Get ready folks the piano legged hag will be back.

Hillary is surprised that the email scandal took on the importance that it did. Well, let me break it down for you sweetheart……. The acts themselves would have landed any normal American in prison. Every active duty soldier, veteran and anyone who has ever held a clearance understands that. And all of the above were loudly saying just that. As is typical for a Clinton, the first instinct to any revelation is to lie about it. Even when the truth would have been a better defense, a Clinton will instinctively lie. We have a 40 year track record that will back that up. Had she come clean, up front and not lied about it, intentionally destroyed evidence after it was subpoenaed, and had she not made ridiculous statements like, "scrub a hard drive, with like a cloth or something", the entire incident would have blown over. Benghazi comes to mind. Terrorism happens, and I didn't blame the Obama administration for the embassy attacks. And in typical fashion, the administration and Hillary felt the need to lie about it.

I'm not convinced that "Dr." Jill Biden will let her husband pick Hildebeast. She's the power behind Old Joe and probably sees herself as pulling his strings if he gets elected. She'd have a major catfight with Hillary. Expect Biden's running mate to be someone the "doctor" can control.

Ha! The frustration of Hillary's campaign was that she was not qualified, healthy, moral, innocent, honest, female or human enough to run for that high office. Yet half of this country was stupid enough to enable her to get close to that kind of power.

Something to remember. Tulsi has not dropped out yet. Sure the media ignores her, but as far as I can see, she is still considering herself a candidate. Bubba is popping up with another one of his embarrassing to Hildabeest comments about Monica, and still trying to excuse it. He really doesn't want to share the spotlight of history with her, because a Hildabeest in the WH would eclipse him and all the men before thanks to the historic nature of her winning. Not that she will of course, but Bubba is ensuring that she will never achieve her dream. Wonder if she realizes that yet?

The Pentagon identified the two Marine Corps Special Forces members killed during a combat operation against an Islamic State stronghold in Iraq over the weekend — the first American combat deaths in the country this year. Gunnery Sgt. Diego Pongo, 34, was a critical skills operator from Simi Valley, California, who enlisted in the Marine Corps in 2004 and completed deployments to both Iraq and Afghanistan, where he earned a Bronze Star for his heroic actions during Operation Enduring Freedom. Pongo, an advanced sniper and fluent in multiple languages, had been a Marine Raider since 2011 and is survived by his daughter and mother.

I found myself thinking over the weekend that with Joe Biden now favored to win the nomination, it won’t be long before the press starts the quadrennial veepstakes ritual. And yesterday—boom!—it arrived in spades. The coronavirus may be spreading worldwide, Wall Street may be having a bloodbath, and Biden has yet to beat Bernie Sanders in Michigan and other key states. But nothing stops the VP speculation. There’s an added twist this year, which is the widespread expectation—and, in some quarters, demand—that the Democratic running mate will be a woman.

And sacré bleu, they’ve even shuttered the Louvre! Some of these reactions are understand­able, much of it pure hysteria. Meanwhile, the spread of the virus continues to slow. More than 18,000 Americans have died from this season’s generic flu so far, according to the latest data from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

Everyone remembers how Starbucks responded to allegations of systemic racism by closing down for a whole day of penance (which meant company-wide sensitivity training) followed by the decision that they would open all their locations—and most especially their bathrooms—to anyone without requiring a product purchase. In other words, it was the equivalent of putting out signs saying, “Loitering Welcome Here.” As they say on the Interwebs, you’ll never guess what happened next!

Jill Biden has a Doctor of Education degree from the University of Delaware, and she never lets the American people forget it. Mrs. Biden, wife of former Vice President Joe Biden, insists on being referred to as “Dr.” Biden. Her Twitter handle is @DrBiden. The press has largely acquiesced: Even though it has persistent trouble referring to actual pediatric neurosurgeon Ben Carson as “Dr.” Ben Carson, it is rare indeed to ever see a reference to Jill Biden without “Dr.” preceding her name. There’s nothing wrong with being proud of one’s educational achievements, of course. But Mrs. Biden’s unrelenting insistence on being called “Dr.” sometimes leads to confusion.
