    Socialists know the value of nothing. They overpaid. For 25% of that they could have rented half of the elected government in America and a good chunk of the bureaucrats, rented a hotel to have the party in with catering, and had included a decent liquor and party girl allowance for private room.

  • Wayne M

    So which scandal is worse: Whitewater, Benghazi or Email-Fail?

    • JSStryker

      I pick D: All of the above.

      • Dread Eagle

        The milions/billions? missing at State on her watch? The list goes on, but the socialist, communist, proggy idiots and those with their hands out to the Fed, will elect her as our next POTUS. Then all the Clinton cronny crooks will finish this county off. Head for the hills! Or maybe a central american country.

  • Big Jim

    Anybody besides me notice the similarity–Chappaquiddick and Chappaqua? Mary Jo and Ambassador Stevens were both left behind….

    “Basically the Russians and the whole world came through Hillary’s back door”

    oh ug, indeed.

    smart power.

    • That “came through Hillary’s back door” imagery made me throw up through my mouth.

      • GWB

        How else do you throw up?!?

        • “through Hillary’s” — “through my”

          Pay attention.

        • John Greer

          You haven’t experienced throwing up through your nose?
          You are a lucky person indeed!

        Hey, think about it, you wouldn’t have to look at that face…………

        Uhhh………. did I really say that?

  • B Woodman

    (sigh) It’s late (for me), I’ve had a long day, I’m tired. Especially of Mordor-on-the-Potomac. I would NOT feel bad if it all disappeared – with everyone and everything – tomorrow. (sigh) Be prepared for another day of disappointment.

    Off for tonight.

    • Gyro

      I’d miss the Air and Space Museum.

      • MasterSgt(Ret)

        It’s a trade off, I’ll admit.

      • B Woodman

        Sorry. It was late night (for me).
        You’re right. The Air & Space. The entire Smithsonian.
        How about this? Disappear anything with politicians & bureaucrats. How’s that? That would take care of 90% of DC.

  • spin drift

    “Out out damned spot” sayeth Lady McCankels.

      Only one “out” for that “damned spot”.

  • JTC

    “Madame President”

    While I have no doubt that the “electorate” is capable of that level of stupid -to wit: 2008, 2012-, there is a glimmer of hope:

    http://www.reuters.com/article/2015/04/09/us-usa-election-poll-idUSKBN0N01G820150409

    Of course we now begin the cycle wherein the cream of the conservative crop is allowed to rise to the top so as to apply the heat and beat them down in plenty of time to allow the wingtips to elevate a RINO to the nomination.

    So yeah, President Hillz? Probably happen. Kill me now.

    • Yes indeed, we have “that level of stupid” and more. The only way to combat that is to pledge your vote against Hitlary, no matter whom the GOP nominates, even if it’s just some mangy yellow dog.

      • jpm100

        No.

        Not going to elect another progressive republican so they can be used to define the ‘far right’ falsely with the deliberate intent to make traditional conservatism look like extremisms and hang the failures of progressive policies on conservatism.

        I wouldn’t expect things that happen under Jeb Bush to be all that different than Hillary so that in 4 or 8 years in a huff over whatever they elect a democrat. I’d rather not have 4 years of hillary but I’ll take 4 years of hillary followed by a real conservative than 4 years of a rino followed by 4 or 8 years of another Obama.

        So, a thousand time no.

        • Chris Muir

          I concur.The GOP is the real enemy, inasmuch as it presents a false choice by aping American values (the Dems make no bones they are Marxists)and presenting that there are 2 parties,when there are not(because they always force in their RINOS).This perpetuates that false choice and a chance for Americans to ever be represented.Ted Cruz,Rand Paul,Scott Walker-all are for illegal immigration, yet still….arrggghhh

          • rooftop voter

            I always swore I would vote for the best candidate on the ticket, but after the last 2 times, well, read my lips…… NEVER AGAIN. So far, I can live with Rand, Walker, or Cruz, but if it isn’t one of those 3, I will vote for the Constitution party candidate, PERIOD.

          • There’s a lot less wiggle room with Cruz on that issue than there is with Walker or Rand. And I would also add Jindal to the list of four candidates that I’d consider voting for (but it’s way too early in the process right now). If someone was to press me for my vote right now, it’d be Cruz with Jindal as his running mate.

          • Sorry, Chris. That sounds too much like cutting off your nose to spite your face. The stakes are too high.

            Obama and Hillary are a menace to this nation. We have to prioritize our goals: first, get those bastards out of office by any means. Then, think about how to deal with the remaining lesser bastards.

          • Voters like me? I’m not sure what you meant by that, Chris.

            I always vote after carefully considering what the stakes and the options are, and then only for what I conclude would be best for my country — not necessary for what’s in it for me. In general, my political choice is conservative — I despise the liberal mindset. I am not, nor have I ever been a member of any political party. Whether I choose to vote for the best candidate available, or against the worst candidate depends on the circumstances of the specific election.

            Is that what you meant by “voters like you”?

        • Yes.

          We are not living in the 1800s — the world is changing much too rapidly in the 21st century. We don’t have the luxury of planning 4, 8, or 12 years ahead.

          In Congressional elections, you can vote with your feet. The same is true for all lower level elections. But in Presidential elections (i.e., national elections) there is no escaping the outcome.

          Hillary can complete Obama’s ruination of this nation in 4-years’ time. Are you willing to take that risk?

          • Chris Muir

            Sorry,Henry.Voters like you perpetuate a false choice, and kill this nation far more than any Democratic voter.

          • rooftop voter

            Henry, sorry, I was on the reservation until I realized the Republicans are treating me exactly the same as the Democrats do Black folks………. Just vote for me, we will take care of you.

            WE DO NOT OWE REPUBLICANS A SINGLE VOTE.

            WE ARE THE PARTY, NOT THE INSIDERS!

          • Chris, I (for one) have (up until the last presidential election) towed the line in disgust. I’ve pinched my nostrils for the likes of GHWB, Dole, GWB, McCain, Romney. They try to placate you with running mate picks like Kemp, Cheney, Palin, Ryan, etc. But, in the end, the results end up being the same – either they lose, or they win and WE lose with the way they govern.

            After 2012 I made up my mind. NO MORE! I may still be “registered” an R but I vote for the person and the principles, not the party. As a common sense, constitutional conservative, if we end up with likes of a Jeb or a Christie again as the nominee (aka, establishment RINO or DemLite), then come the main election I will vote for neither party candidate. It’ll either be 3rd party or write-in for me.

            I’ve voted in every election every year for every local, state and fed offices ever since I turned 18 (including special elections). I’ll never not vote, but I will exercise my God-given right to vote as I please – and most certainly will NOT vote for yet another DemLite/EstabRINO to lead this country.

        I think all of you misunderstand where I stand. I have already responded to the comment Chris made to me (see above @April 10, 2015, 2:47 pm), wherein I tried to clarify what sort of voter I am. So I’ll quote myself here:

        “I always vote after carefully considering what the stakes and the options are, and then only for what I conclude would be best for my country — not necessarily for what’s in it for me. In general, my political choice is conservative — I despise the liberal mindset. I am not, nor have I ever been a member of any political party. Whether I choose to vote for the best candidate available, or against the worst candidate depends on the circumstances of the specific election.”

        • Chris Muir

          That was a bit rude of me,TBH.But my view of our voting choices remains unchanged.

          • That’s fine, Chris. Everyone is entitled to their own views and voting choices. I enjoy a friendly discussion.

            As far as voting choices, I believe the most important of all is to vote! That is the only means that ordinary American citizens have (of those who are eligible to vote) to advance their choices for their country. For me, that usually means one thing, albeit two ways of looking at it: I either vote for whoever I believe to be the better of the two major party candidates, or, perhaps reluctantly, the lesser of the two major evils. Not to vote, or (which amounts to the same thing) to vote for a third candidate who can not possibly win, can not possibly advance your choices, whatever they may be.

    • JTC

      Here’s the point TBH,

      I’ve said before that media/celebrities/academics choose our nominee by attrition and been shouted down by my own team that that say they don’t choose our nominee, we do…but that’s not correct because by determining who our nominee will NOT be with the relentless heat that they have the tools to apply, they make it easy for establishment R’s (the wingtips I mentioned) to just hold back until their guy looks unoffensive enough that everybody like you just says, oh what the fuck at least he’s an R so it’s better than a D.

      But it’s not; when we do that, libs win, because hey, if we’re gonna have a lib anyway, just go ahead and pull the D lever. And so might I because if we’re going to crash and burn I want to be sure the D’s get the credit.

      Progs are evil but they are also smart; they have all that talking head and Hollywood backing and they dominate academia. That’s a powerful machine the wine and cheese crowd adore them, emulate them, and want to be them, and when added to the votes they buy with freebies they toss to the unwashed will get them elected every time if they have been (again) successful in limiting the choices to them, and an ersatz image of them. It has become a modus operandi that works…because “we” let it. So don’t.

      • “… everybody like you just says, oh what the fuck at least he’s an R so it’s better than a D.”

        What part of what I said above (twice) do you not understand, JTC? I do not engage in party politics. I never joined any party at all. I don’t vote in primary elections (not even those for which I am eligible as an independent voter). I do vote for every general election (and most local elections) and I always vote for either the better of two major candidates or the lesser of the two major evils, as I understand them to be.

        To the best of my judgement, I vote for the one candidate who has the best chance to advance the goals that I believe will be in the best interest of my country. Period. I don’t give a flying f*ck about any political party.

        Capice?

        • JTC

          Not a comp problem TBH, it’s the content that you’ve restated several times in several ways:

          “…pledge your vote against Hitlary, no matter whom the GOP nominates, even if it’s just some mangy yellow dog”…”the lesser of the two major evils”…”Not to vote, or (which amounts to the same thing) to vote for a third candidate who can not possibly win, can not possibly advance your choices, whatever they may be.”

          That is buying into defeatism and a self-fulfilling prophecy; having been raised in a Southern yelladogdimicrat household, that is a premise that I abhor. A lesser evil is still evil, and voting for it instead of following your heart and mind only ensures the evil continues to live and your ideal never will. That’s why things are the way they are, why are choices are limited to Dim and Dimmer, and why we are likely in the end times of the Republic. I refuse to contribute to that; I might die under socialist rule but at least I’ll go knowing I didn’t help perpetuate it.

          • I disagree, JTC. There is always some discernible difference between any two candidates, on which you can base your choice. And making a choice, any choice that counts, is doing something in support of what you believe in.

            When I used the expression “yellow dog” it was not a reference to the historical “yelladogdimicrat”. I meant only that anybody other than Hillary would be less bad than Hillary herself. Yes, a lesser evil is still an evil, but it is less of an evil, which still counts as doing something against the greater evil. Not choosing either candidate is what I would call “buying into defeatism”, because you aren’t making any effort to counter the greater evil.

            It is your prerogative to resign yourself to a socialist rule. But I prefer to continue doing whatever I can to avoid such a calamity. And the only action available to me, as I see it, is to vote for the better or the less bad candidate.

    Quote Wayne M:
    “Whitewater, Benghazi or Email-Fail?”

    Has anyone ever found the “Missing Billion” from her time at the State Dept?

    crickets chirp quietly ….

    Why is this “thing” not in prison?

    shakes head in bewilderment

    • GWB

      Why is this “thing” not in prison?

      Because the people are enervated. No one believes that justice should be directly executed by the people any more.

      Just frame it in these terms: These people – just like ISIS and AQ – desire to see you enslaved and kneeling in subjugation to them, and everything they do is ultimately in service to that goal. What solution seems appropriate for that?

  • KenH

    She’s a proggy scumbag who’s been above ground way too long Janny; which part of this are you having difficulty with?

    The Sovs would have put a bullet in the back of her skull 40 years ago, and airbrushed her out

  • Kevin M

    Like capn, I can’t fathom how in the world that rancid, scrotum-faced old cankersore of a corruptocrat isn’t wearing an orange jumpsuit and picking up litter at the side of the highway.

    It’s like the entire country has turned into Chicago, where they pillage and loot in broad daylight, and then laugh at the videos of them pillaging and looting in broad daylight on YouTube over Champagne and caviar.

      The TRUTH is strong in this comment…

  • Bill G

    Her spots have been showing ever since she got kicked off the Watergate investigation team for illegal maneuvering.
    But she’s still running free, no matter what her crimes.
    Still in the political fray, no matter her temperament.

    • eon

      It’s that magic “D” next to her name. RINOS have to work for their Progressive Get Out Of Jail Free cards. With the “D”, it’s automatic, especially with the news media.

      cheers

  • Ed Brault

    These issues need to be kept in the public eye all the way thru the election. She needs to be hit with questions on these at every speech, interview, and traffic stop right up to election day!
    If you thought Bill was bad, and Obozo worse, just wait until Lady Macbeth is coronated!

  • Uffdaphil

    Yet Watergate lives on as the symbol of political corruption. Al Capone is guffawing in Hell.

    “But not, apparently, her spots.”

  • Pamela

    “Change her spots”. She does that several times a year when she sheds her skin. One of these days, while away for a vacation, there will be one procedure too many. All of her ill-gotten back door money will not fix it.

    Hookers have more scruples.

  • Immanuel Goldstein

    Hillary will never be President. The wheels are already coming off of her campaign. The only way she seems credible is when she stays out of sight. When she begins to campaign all her shortcomings become evident. At the rate she’s going, she won’t even make it till the primary season.

    • JTC

      “she won’t even make till the primary season.”

      I can think of alternatives that are worse if that’s possible. You?

      • pyodice

        Meh, she fails one pretty important test: If you quit at secretary of state because you can’t hack it, how the HELL are you going to convince enough people you can ‘hack it’ at the most centralized job in the world?

    Someone please drown the witch and stake her heart while she’s still ‘officially’ a civilian….Dorothy? Dorothy! Use this pail of water!

    • Pamela

      I wonder if the food saver people have vacuum seal bags that could shrink that down a bit. Barring that, LOTS of bondo, filler, and maybe some chameleon or reflective paint. I don’t think SHIELD would hand over any of their make me invisible tech.
