Perpetual blame game: Clinton suggests Bernie Sanders resorted to "innuendo and impugning my character" to gain ground in the primary

Hillary the loser.


Must suck to be so bitter.
From Daily Mail: Hillary Clinton‘s frustrations with Bernie Sanders spill out onto the pages of her forthcoming book, What Happened, as she gripes about his campaign tactics and the fact that he was never truly a Democrat. 
‘Because we agreed on so much, Bernie couldn’t make an argument against me in this area on policy, so he had to resort to innuendo and impugning my character,’ Clinton writes, according to a page tweeted out by journalist and CauseWired founder Tom Watson.
The Vermont senator, Clinton charged, laid the foundation for Donald Trump‘s ‘Crooked Hillary’ charge against her, and didn’t have the future of the Democratic Party in mind during his run.
‘Some of his supporters, the so-called Bernie Bros, took to harassing my supporters online. It got ugly and more than a little sexist,’ Clinton recalled.
During the primary, Sanders would often hint that Clinton was corrupt because of financial donations she took from Wall Street and other large companies. ‘When I finally challenged Bernie during a debate to name a single time I changed a position or a vote because of a financial contribution he couldn’t come up with anything,’ Clinton noted.
‘Nonetheless, his attacks caused lasting damage, making it harder to unify progressives in the general election and paving the way for Trump’s “Crooked Hillary” campaign,’ she said.
Clinton wondered aloud if Sanders even cared, as he considered himself a Democratic Socialist, and not a Democrat, and thought about running for president as an independent.  
‘I don’t know if that bothered Bernie or not,’ she said. ‘He certainly shared my horror at the thought of Donald Trump becoming president, and I appreciated that he campaigned for me in the general election.’
‘But he isn’t a Democrat – that’s not a smear, that’s what he says,’ Clinton continued.’
‘He didn’t get into the race to make sure a Democrat won the White House, he got in to disrupt the Democratic Party,’ she noted.
Clinton said Sanders was right that the Democratic Party needed to pay more attention to working families.  And she also pointed out that there’s a ‘danger’ in spending too much time fundraising, though blamed it on the country’s ‘insane campaign finance system.’
Clinton also gave credit to Sanders for bringing a lot of young people into the political process.
‘But I think he was fundamentally wrong about the Democratic Party – the party that brought us Social Security under Roosevelt; Medicare and Medicaid under Johnson; peace between Israel and Egypt under Carter; broad-based prosperity and a balanced budget under Clinton; and rescued the auto industry, passed health care reform and imposed tough new rules on Wall Street under Obama,’ Clinton noted.
‘I am proud to be a Democrat and I wish Bernie were, too,’ Clinton said.

Barack Obama’s Spokesperson Defends $400,000 Wall Street-Sponsored Speech


From Yahoo: Barack Obama’s spokesperson Eric Schultz defended the former president’s $400,000 speaking fee for an upcoming speech at a conference sponsored by a Wall Street investment bank.
“With regard to this or any speech involving Wall Street sponsors, I’d just point out that in 2008, Barack Obama raised more money from Wall Street than any candidate in history — and still went on to successfully pass and implement the toughest reforms on Wall Street since FDR,” Schultz said in a statement.
Reports that Obama would earn $400,000 for the speech drew criticism this week, as people argued that accepting money from Wall Street firms would go against his beliefs. Obama’s post-presidential career will include a number of speeches and a two-book deal with Penguin Random House for $60 million.
“While he’ll continue to give speeches from time to time, he’ll spend most of his time writing his book and, as he said in Chicago this week, focusing his post-presidency work on training and elevating a new generation of political leaders in America,” Schultz said.

Former elections clerk who said Hawaii has no birth certificate says he’ll vote for Obama

Tim Adams was was employed at the City and County of Honolulu Elections Division from May 2008 through September 2008. His position was senior elections clerk, overseeing a group of 50 to 60 employees responsible for verifying the identity of voters at the Absentee Ballot Office. In other words, Adams had access to all the database in Honolulu to verify any voter’s identity and birth.

In June 2010, Adams caused quite a stir when he unequivocally said Obama had not been born in Hawaii because the Hawaii state government does not have an original or long-form birth certificate for Barack Obama Jr. Nor do the two hospitals in Honolulu, Queen’s Medical Center and Kapiolani Medical Center, have birth records or an attending physician for Obama.

Adams even said he is willing and prepared to testify in court about all this. In January 2011, he signed an affidavit swearing he was told by his supervisors in Hawaii that no long-form, hospital-generated birth certificate existed for Barack Obama Jr. in Hawaii and that neither Queens Medical Center nor Kapi’olani Medical Center in Honolulu had any record of Obama having been born in their medical facilities.

Despite all that — despite his own testimony on the lack of documentary evidence of Obama’s Hawaii birth, and the implications this has on Obama’s veracity and the integrity of our Constitution (specifically Article II’s requirement that the President of the United States of America must be a “natural born” U.S. citizen) — Tim Adams has just declared he will vote for a second term for the POS.

Here’s Tim Adams wearing his hippie-dippy beads on video (h/t ObamaReleaseYourRecords):

[youtube=https://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_embedded&v=foEjvgycimk#!]

Adams says he’ll vote for the POS because he rejects Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan.

Why is that?

Because Romney-Ryan represent the evil corporate bankers. Because Ryan admires Ayn Rand. Because Romney is “a disciple” of David Rockefeller. Because Romney-Ryan will get us into wars in the Middle East. Blah, blah, blah.

As if Barry Soetoro Obama doesn’t coddle corporate bankers (As a U.S. senator in 2008, Obama voted in favor of the Wall Street bailout called TARP; as president in 2010, Obama implemented his own Wall Street bailout). As if B.S. Obama didn’t get us into wars in the Middle East (Remember our “intervention” in Libya? Aren’t our troops still in Afghanistan, now the longest war in U.S. history? Hasn’t the POS’s support for the misnamed “Arab Spring” led to chaos, unrest, and violent anti-Americanism across the region, including attacks on our embassies and the killing of our ambassador and three other diplomatic staff members?)

None of this makes any sense. Either Tim Adams is stupid, or his testimony about Honolulu not having Obama’s original birth certificate was just part of an ENORMOUS charade where the American people were played as dupes and fools.

In 2010, Adams was an English instructor at Western Kentucky University (WKU). I just ran a search on WKU’s website but could not find him among either the faculty/staff or the students of WKU’s English Department.

What’s that weird pendant hanging from his neck? Below is a screenshot of Adams from the video, followed by a blow-up of the pendant:

Barney Frank Supports the Commie "Protesters" While Seeking Wall Street Cash

The New Three Stooges


Yes, you read that right, and no, you have not accidentally swerved into the Onion.
Bawney Fwank, who I have posted about previously concerning his culpability when it comes to the financial and economic meltdown that this entire planet is now facing, actually supports those who, if they were even remotely bright enough, would be trampling the petunias into mush on his own front lawn.
Via politico.com:

Rep. Barney Frank might sympathize with the Occupy Wall Street protesters, but he’s still got friends in the financial world.
The Massachusetts Democrat is heading to New York hoping to raise tens of thousands of dollars Thursday at a fundraiser at the home of Charles Myers, a senior investment banking advisor at Evercore Partners. Myers is one of several Wall Street execs listed on the invite soliciting up to $2,500 from attendees for Frank’s reelection committee, according to a copy obtained by POLITICO.
Frank, the co-author of the sweeping financial regulatory reform bill signed into law last year, said in a recent interview with POLITICO that he didn’t see any conflict between supporting the protests and taking financial services money.
“If you take money from them, but you don’t vote [for] the things they want, how does that put you in conflict?” Frank questioned.
Frank said he supports the movement “to the extent that they obey the law” and that he wishes “that kind of energy was around two years ago when we were voting on the financial reform bill. We’d have a tougher bill.”
Frank spokesman Harry Gural said the event isn’t exclusively a Wall Street fundraiser, and will include members of the gay and lesbian community and others.

You will find the rest of the article at this link.
Justice is going to find this cretin one day – if not in this life, then most certainly the next.
When that day comes, I am going to be soooooooo glad that my name is not Barney Frank.

Wall St. Slugs are Getting Ugly

From the Blaze.com
Media!’ See the Moment the Friday Protests Turned Violent in NYC
Posted on October 14, 2011 at 10:31am by Jonathon M. Seidl
———————————————————————-

We already mentioned that the protests turned violent this morning in New York after protesters, emboldened by the decision not to evict them from their home base, marched on the New York Stock Exchange. In our previous story we had video catching the tail end of an incident involving a protester and police on scooters.
(Related: Bloomberg says park owner received “threatening” calls from politicians)
Now we have the full video showing the actual moment the clash began, courtesy of the New York Post:
A New York City police officer runs over a National Lawyers Guild observer as Occupy Wall Street demonstrators march through the streets near Wall Street, Friday, Oct. 14, 2011, in New York. (Photo: AP
Police urged protesters to stay out of the street and stay on the sidewalk
Police scooters were shaped like a V and moved toward the protesters in the standoff. One man lost his balance, and was run over by a police scooter. Police descended on the protester and got him out from under the bike. Some witnesses tell Sandberg the man was beaten during the arrest.
“We had somebody knock over a scooter, there were some arrests here — I don’t know what the charges were — there were people in the street the police officer was trying to get them out of the street, this was down near the exchange,” New York City Police Department’s Deputy Commissioner of Public Information Paul Browne said.
First Precinct Commander Ed Winski checked a protester who refused to stay on the sidewalk. When the protester came back into the street, Winski hurled his megaphone down and wound up rolling around in the street with the protester, throwing punches. Other officers surrounded the two, throwing punches. The protester was arrested.
Police say the protesters were throwing bottles and bags of garbage at officers, triggering the police response, Sandberg reported. Police say they were trying to control the situation when it got out of hand.

Dianne Sawyer is a Boob!

Found this over at newsbusters. Really funny.       

~Steve

So enthused about promoting the far-left protests, ABC anchor Diane Sawyer on Monday night‘s World News championed “the Occupy Wall Street movement” by ludicrously claiming that “as of tonight, it has spread to more than 250 American cities, more than a thousand countries — every continent but Antarctica.”
Protests against the wealthy in “thousands of countries,” including Cuba, China and every country in Africa? Per the U.S. State Department, however, there are only 195 nation states in the world, so Sawyer imagined five times as many protests as could possibly have occurred.

Rich Wall St. Republicans Enabled NY Gay Marriage Law

Gay marriage advocates cheer in the NY Senate gallery

On the night of June 23, 2011, at five minutes before midnight, New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo — a Democrat and nominal Roman Catholic — signed the gay marriage bill. With that, New York became the 6th and largest state in America to legalize gay marriage, joining Connecticut, Massachusetts, Vermont, New Hampshire, Iowa, and Washington, D.C.

Andrew Cuomo

What made possible the passage of the bill is the critical role played by Republicans — both in the NY state Senate and at large.

Last November 2010, Democrats lost their majority in the NY state Senate. On the night of June 23, 2011, however, four Republicans (Stephen Saland of Poughkeepsie, Mark Grisanti of Buffalo, Roy McDonald of Saratoga Springs, James Alesi of Rochester) joined 29 Democrats to give the gay marriage bill one more vote than needed to pass, by a margin of 33 to 29.

But the votes of those four Republican senators had been bought by wealthy Republican donors.

As recounted by Michael Barbaro of the New York Times, June 25, 2011, a few weeks before the bill’s passage, two of Cuomo’s most trusted advisers held a secret meeting  with “a group of super-rich Republican donors.” In the 35th-floor conference room of a Manhattan highrise, “over tuna and turkey sandwiches,” the advisers asked for the GOP moneymen to help win over the deciding Senate Republicans by promising to insulate, with their money and power, the senators from a conservative backlash.

Paul Singer

The Wall Street moneybags in the room included billionaire and hedge fund founder Paul Singer, whose son is gay, and hedge fund managers Cliff Asness and Daniel Loeb.

Within days of that secret meeting, the wealthy Republicans sent back word:

Cliff Asness

They were on board. Each of them cut six-figure checks to the lobbying campaign that eventually totaled more than $1 million.

And so, as Barbaro puts it, the gay marriage bill succeeded because of the “behind the scenes” machinations. In Barbaro’s words:

Daniel Loeb

“[I]t was really about a Republican Party reckoning with a profoundly changing power dynamic, where Wall Street donors and gay-rights advocates demonstrated more might and muscle than a Roman Catholic hierarchy and an ineffective opposition. And it was about a Democratic governor, himself a Catholic, who used the force of his personality and relentlessly strategic mind to persuade conflicted lawmakers to take a historic leap.”

We are the hollow men
We are the stuffed men
Leaning together
Headpiece filled with straw. Alas!
Our dried voices, when
We whisper together
Are quiet and meaningless
As wind in dry grass
Or rats’ feet over broken glass
In our dry cellar[…]

This is the way the world ends
This is the way the world ends
This is the way the world ends
Not with a bang but a whimper.

About Obama: Pravda Lays it on the line

American Capitalism Gone With A Whimper

It must be said, that like the breaking of a great dam, the American decent into Marxism is happening with breath taking speed, against the back drop of a passive, hapless sheeple, excuse me dear reader, I meant people.

True, the situation has been well prepared on and off for the past century, especially the past twenty years. The initial testing grounds was conducted upon our Holy Russia and a bloody test it was. But we Russians would not just roll over and give up our freedoms and our souls, no matter how much money Wall Street poured into the fists of the Marxists.

Those lessons were taken and used to properly prepare the American populace for the surrender of their freedoms and souls, to the whims of their elites and betters.

First, the population was dumbed down through a politicized and substandard education system based on pop culture, rather then the classics. Americans know more about their favorite TV dramas then the drama in DC that directly affects their lives. They care more for their “right” to choke down a McDonalds burger or a BurgerKing burger than for their constitutional rights. Then they turn around and lecture us about our rights and about our “democracy”. Pride blind the foolish.   Read More
