Hillary: Hey, This IG Is Just a Republican Stooge Rehashing Discredited Attacks

Her spokesman attempts to not say "vast right wing conspiracy," perhaps expecting guffaws. (He'd be right to expect that.) He instead says that the IG's leaks are "highly coordinated with Republicans."

Except the IG isn't a Republican; indeed, he's an Obama appointee.

When someone is obviously guilty of a crime, I'm sure the world looks like a "conspiracy" out to "get them."

This conspiracy is called "the criminal justice system," and it embraces thousands and thousands of co-conspirators.

But it does go to show how easy it is to subvert the Criminal Justice system if you have access to and compliance of Big Media.

Remember all the lefties who want to impeach Michigan Governor Snyder over the Flint water plan? Of course the mayor and city council are all Democrats and agreed to the plan that led to it. The EPA flubbed and even under a Republican, that's a Democrat agency.

It was all down to the fact that Snyder had appointed a city manager, who is apparently supposed to be responsible for testing water.

Except that city manager is black. And an SEIU member. And a Democrat.

It's part of the corruption, actually. Democrats are corrupt and incompetent and the only way to deal with them is to have another Democrat do it, else they squeal.

Goldwater finally had to take an obscure NY congressman named William Miller. All the leading GOP players he asked said "no thanks."

Trump is going to be in an identical position if he's nominated. None of the rival candidates are going to want to be remembered as the new Rep. Wm. E. Miller.

If Trump wants a nationally known GOP figure on his ticket, I think Palin & Ventura would accept, but likely no one else who is a national political figure.

Put yourself in Cruz or Rubio's position. You have some pride, You've been savaged by the Donald just like all the other contenders.

222 Daily Mail:

Hillary Clinton faces Twitter backlash after saying in debate that 'no individual' is 'too big to jail'

A tweet sent out by Hillary Clinton's campaign during last night's Democratic debate got a lot of attention because of the email scandal

'I can't believe she just tweeted that with a straight face,' said one Twitter users

A chorus of other Twitter users asked if Hillary was 'too big to jail'

Posted by: Misfortune & Pestilence at January 20, 2016 12:54 PM (JayGb)

223 I still think the pressure on Zoobama to give Hillary a preemptive pardon must be pretty sizeable. The Democrats really need to get this threat out of the way, or she may have to close down her campaign. Obviously an indictment kills her chances, and I'd argue a continuing and increasingly serious investigation does it too.

They don't want to have Crazy Bern as the nominee, so Elizabeth Warren or Biden (or maybe some past loser like Kerry) will either have to get in or they will need to clean Hillary up.

I predict a big dump of damaging info from the administration to see how she survives it. If she still floats, and still polls reasonably well, she will get a pardon. Otherwise, you'll see her drop out and Warren or Biden will jump in.

Either way, the Democrats face open rebellion from the socialist Bernie supporters (maybe Warren can blunt that, so I bet she's the one who gets in). Total chaos on the Democrat side coming.

I actually agree, which is why I think he goes private sector, either someone like Mark Cuban or, to broaden his appeal, someone more lefty, like Elon Musk (unlikely, guy's a cipher and wouldn't fit in as second fiddle). Or a celebrity, which accomplishes the same thing, and let's be honest, after Joe Biden, why shouldn't Vince Vaughn or Kurt Russell be VP? Then we'll see what idiocracy looks like.

He needs to balance grabbing hold of the GOP bloc, not just the "angry base," with actual triangulation if he wants to sway the 5-15 percent of dems he needs to jump ship. So if he doesn't stay bulletproof with Republican likely voters through SC, he'll probably nominate an R politician and then tack left for the general. If he shores up the R coalition he'll have more leeway with a VP pick.

Goldwater finally had to take an obscure NY congressman named William Miller. All the leading GOP players he asked said "no thanks."

Trump is going to be in an identical position if he's nominated. None of the rival candidates are going to want to be remembered as the new Rep. Wm. E. Miller.

If Trump wants a nationally known GOP figure on his ticket, I think Palin & Ventura would accept, but likely no one else who is a national political figure.

289 my rambling thoughts:
Hillery makes a deal with the Obama admin to avoid any real trouble before the election. After the election, Obama pardons Hillery whether she wins or loses.
Hillery in return agrees to an Obama (or ValJar) approved VP. Double plus: Hillery agrees to give Moochelle a position (if the Dems somehow take back the Senate, maybe Sec of Education.)

Also... if Trump is the Repub nominee and it looks like he's going to win, the Obama admin suddenly announces all kinds of criminal and civil investigations against Trump and his company.

Also, what the f is up with people saying they will support a third party conservative candidate for Pres if Trump is the nominee? Why don't they just start a C'onservatives for Hillery" org? I'm sure David Brooks would want to be the honorary chairman.

404 Conservatism and conservative have been rendered politically meaningless.

The paradigm is big government or slightly less big government.

When the so called "conservstives" held both houses and the Presidency, we did not get conservative policies.

We got anything but that.

The only lasting thing to come from that was a single SCOTUS pick and we had to kick and scream to get even that, see Harriet Myers.

So this notion that Trump isn't conservative is pointless, the only question is will he advance want are now my narrow goals of altering the trajectory on immigration. I think he will, he says he will. The other candidates have, in their own way, told me to go fuck myself.

So that's why I support Trump, but he is starting to make it hard to that.

421 The medical devices tax was repealed last month. Granted it was a 2 year temporary repeal. But this will be like the state sales tax deduction. It's been a "temporary" deduction for the past 15 years, as every year it gets extended for another year or two.

The medical devices tax is as good as permanently repealed too I think. A lot of medical devices are manufactured in deep blue states so it will be a slam dunk politically for congress to keep on extending the "temporary" repeal.

424 Reagan was great at many things, including his voice for "America First" and calling out the evil empire.

But his miracle genie of deficit spending (voodoo economics) indeed turned things, but set us on the course for continuous growing deficits. Of course this was maybe started by the commies starting the federal reserve, or the New Deal, or Nixon going off gold, or LTCM bailout for millionaires, or too big to fail or jail, or zero interest and QE ...

All that, is a long line of degrading our currency and empowering the private bankers. Reagan was not happy about the deficit he left ... Greenspan and future fed chairs enabled the continuation of the "voodoo". Is the party over?

446 We (me included) see him at least partially as the hammer of hate to be used on the GOPe for past transgressions, but that doesn't account for his level of popularity.

IIRC, what got the gold-plated, luxurious ball of Trump rolling was his simple statement about closing the Mexican border to illegals.

That's something that most Americans know has never even been tried during their lifetimes.

It's the elephant in the room and he was the first candidate to actually say what everyone's been thinking for years. He's a refreshing break from the legions of milquetoast quims who dare not take a stance on anything.

And he pissed off all the right people by saying it.

Asked about what to do with the people here illegally, however, he stressed that he had never tried to undo the goal of allowing them to stay.

"The amendment that I introduce removed the path to citizenship, but it did not change the underlying work permit from the Gang of Eight," he said during a recent visit to El Paso. Mr. Cruz also noted that he had not called for deportation or, as Romney famously advocated, self-deportation.

There are conservative candidates running in the GOP primaries right now--as deep of a bench we've seen from the GOP in ages--and you're going for Trump because you're pissed at the Establishment and you think Trump is going to do...something somewhere that might somehow justify your support.

This Trump phenomenon is strikingly similar to the Know Nothing movement of the pre-Civil War Era. TheKnow Nothings only claim to fame was that it was instrumental in giving the 1856 election to DemocratJames Buchanan, later rated as the worst president in our history and whose election made the Civil War a certainty.

This time we get Hillary--or maybe even Bernie Sanders. With luck, unlike last time, maybe we won't end up shooting at each other before it's over.

Yep.

If Palin's endorsement does help Trump win Iowa, I have no doubt the GOPe will be very very happy. While the Establishment loathes both of them, they know they can cut deals with Trump (although I think Sanders has a better shot at being president than Trump does). They know Cruz will not give in on much, which is the real reason they hate him.

So Palin is, in fact, playing exactly into the hated establishment's hands. That makes me think that maybe her critics were right after all and she's not too bright - or she's letting her bitterness color her judgement.

But they can't ... that's the thing ... 1000 more Overton windows have to be moved, and nobody else has shown the ability to do it. Cruz was late to "the wall" and recently wanted 5X H-1Bs, and expressed love for LEGAL immigration. So who is kidding whom?

Regardless of any Trump weaknesses/concerns, publicly trashing the people who support the GOP frontrunner --- and yes, the GOP owns him after having him sign that loyalty oath --- is just plain stupid.

The GOPe's LIB attitude, the willingness to trash the nominee/get a Democrat elected should Cruz or Trump be the candidate, is particularly jerky just one week after Gov. Haley lectured us about civility and the need to not alienate potential GOP voters. Again, "big tent" my a$$.

514 Funny piece in Commentary today hyperventilating about the "Palin-Trump alliance" and how it signals the death of Reagan conservatism. As if Reagan conservatism lasted 10 minutes beyond the first Bush's inauguration, or that Dole, Bush, McCain or Romney were "Reagan conservatives" or that Rino's ever cared anyway.

Reagan would be derided as a moderate today. Even by the standards and issues of his time he wasn't good enough.

Trump bashed Reagan in The Art of the Deal on page 60. IN 1987.

If you thought Reagan was good for America, you should despise Trump.

For anyone dumb enuf to question Cruz' bona fides on immigration, two words: Jeff Sessions.

Because he said Cruz & Lee were his only allies in the darkest hour of the gang of 8 fight. So... obviously Sessions is a big immigration fraud too!

We love the guy around here, but to go from being Milwaukee County Sheriff to being a heartbeat away from the presidency, when we don't know what his opinions are on foreign policy the economy or anything else besides the 2nd Amendment and the stupidity of BLM - no. Really, just no.

Posted by: Donna and V. (sans ampersands) at January 20, 2016 01:45 PM (u0lmX)

525 i'm a Cruz guy

but here's the thing.

Apart from him, no one else on the bench is particularly conservative.

And Trump will do, at least, one thing that I think is important for the good of the country.

Build a wall and reestablish control of our borders.

If you're against that, then you're going to have to explain to me how allowing millions of unskilled, uneducated, illiterate(even in their own language) people into our country to instantly get on welfare and social security which they will never ever come close to paying back-

is both conservative and good for our country.

That's not even my biggest issue, but the others aren't even offering that.

Cruz 1st.

If not him though, Trump.


After Cruz, you're just arguing degrees of libtardism.

I'll take the guy (Trump) who will, maybe, give me at least one thing I want.

Here's something...Those who are supporting Trump are incandescent with rage at the establishment for what they believe are betrayals. Derision and condescension is bringing gasoline and road flares into a pine forest. If the establishment ever wanted to get this under control they have been passing up their opportunities.

Yeah. Some of the same people who say "Rubio is dead to me" because of his Gang of 8 betrayal say, "Meh, so what?" when you point out the many liberal positions Trump has held and the liberal pols he has given money too. I fail to see how giving money to Harry Reid was the price of doing business in NYC.

All this is moot, however, because the country is mainly leftwing now. The next pres will be Bernie Sanders.

no, I'm happy to have President Cruz, but the Clinton machine and the GOPe will be hard to contend with ... So IF GOPe really gets behind Cruz and he beats Trump ... fine. But there truly is contempt for Cruz in high GOPe places, so they may not really back him, unless he compromises with them.

But with Trump having twice the national support, I hate all the vicious Trump bashing, AND the bashing of any that see the need to recognize he could win. Then what to do with all that cumulative HATE that has been spread by half of FOX analysts and others.

The Cruz supporters are playing the GOPe game sorta ... trying to poison the other guy, like McConnell/Boner do to the tea party. Their way or they will vote Hillary. Same with much of the Trump hate ... they will vote third party.
