Outgoing Democrat Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid Says of GOP Presidential Contenders, “I Think They’re all Losers.”
GOOD RIDDANCE HARRY REID …
Honestly, no one is going to miss this miserable man when he leaves the Senate. The Democrat Senate Minority Leader said in an interview with CNBC’s John Harwood that the candidates running for president are all losers. What a miserable individual. It is exactly this type of crotchety, mean spirited behavior that was evident during his run as Senate Majority leader. What ever happened to liberal tolerance? As Taylor Swift sings, “Why do you have to be so mean?”
The Republican field for president in 2016 is full of “losers,” Harry Reid said in an interview that aired Wednesday.
The Senate minority leader, a boxer in his youth, delivered some spirited blows while talking with CNBC’s John Harwood, calling his Republican counterpart Mitch McConnell “a lump of coal” and slamming alternative theories about how he sustained his eye injury.
Reid also said he doesn’t really care who wins the Republican nomination for president. “I think they’re all losers,” he said.
Hillary Clinton, in Her Own Words from Benghazi-gate to Dems Defending Obamacare to Flip-Flop on Gay Marriage to Poor Clinton’s to Foreign Policy Empathizing with One’s Enemies to Email Scandal
Hillary Clinton, in Her Own Words …
America, all you have to do is listen to what Hillary has done in the past to know what she will be like as a president. Hillary Clinton is synonymous with scandal, there is no getting around it, even if the Hillary anti-free speech police try and prevent people from speaking the truth. Hillary launched the worst kept secret of 2015 this weekend and officially announced her run for president in 2016.
We certainly know that she won’t be claiming she will have the most transparent administration ever. Then again, she claims to be for the common folk and that is not true either.
The VIDEO shows clips from just some of the recent Hillary scandals as well as her opinions on foreign policy:
- Democrats Defending Obamacare
- Flip-Flop on Gay Marriage
- Hillary crying Poor
- Empathizing with One’s Enemies – Really, we are supposed to empathize and respect terrorist groups like ISIS, al-Qaeda, Boko Haram and the rest?
- Email/Server Scandal – Hmm, even Richard Nixon didn’t destroy the tapes … remember what she said about GWB admin shredding docs?
Folks claims they want something new, if that is the case, how is Hillary Clinton even a consideration?
Hillary Clinton Officially Announces Her 2016 Presidential Run … Because Everyday Americans Need a Democrat Champion Who Makes Between $5.2 and $25.5 Million
HILLARY CLINTON OFFICIALLY ANNOUNCES THAT SHE IS RUNNING FOR PRESIDENT IN 2016 …
How comical, today Hillary Clinton officially announced that she was running for president in 2016 claiming and that everyday Americans need a champion because the deck is still stacked in favor of those at the top. Um, you mean stacked in favor of people like you Hillary? Are you kidding me that an individual who makes $225,000 per speech is going to claim that she is one of the people and run a populist, REALLY? Who is the Democrat party kidding? Talk about your hypocrisy. So all you Democrats think Hillary Clinton is the champion of the middle class, eh? Drink some more Kool-aid. Sorry folks, but if Hillary was a Republican you would be calling her one of the out of touch and privileged one percenters.
‘I’m running for president,’ she says.
‘Everyday Americans need a champion, and I want to be that champion.’
That message is a daring one, given Clinton’s wealth. When she left the U.S. State Department in 2013, her financial disclosure report showed that her combined net worth with her husband was between $5.2 and $25.5 million. Millions more rolled in when she published her memoirs.
She famously claimed last year that she and former president Bill Clinton were ‘dead broke’ when they left the White House in 2001 – when they moved into a palatial home in a tree-lined New York City suburb.
Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton ended the suspense on Sunday afternoon, announcing that she will seek the White House in 2016.
“I’m running for president,” said Clinton, a Democrat who would become the nation’s first female commander-in-chief, in a Web video.
“Americans have fought their way back from tough economic times, but the deck is still stacked in favor of those at the top,” she continued. “Everyday Americans need a champion, and I want to be that champion. You can do more than just get by. You can get ahead, and stay ahead. Because when families are strong, America is strong.”
Clinton said she is “hitting the road to earn your vote” and her first stops will be in Iowa, the state where she came in third in the caucuses in 2008. She’ll then head to New Hampshire and South Carolina.
Clinton plans to spend the next six to eight weeks in a “ramp up” phase, reaching out to voters in early voting states and building up grassroots support nationwide, her campaign said. In May, once supporters are organized and able to host watch parties, Clinton “will hold her first rally and deliver the speech to kick off her campaign.”
While Clinton was the center of attention on Sunday, her team made conscious efforts to put voters and key supporters first. The web video runs more than 90 seconds before Clinton makes her first appearance. The video was filmed across the country, including in Iowa and New Hampshire, and features a diverse mix of Americans, including a young mother, a college student, Spanish-speakers, and male and female same-sex couples.
Don’t let anyone kid you America, it’s always about the Clinton’s.
In striking contrast to her 2008 presidential bid, Clinton’s campaign took great effort to take the focus off her. In her two-minute announcement video, Clinton doesn’t even appear until the 1:35 mark.
Instead, the video captured messages central to her campaign by featuring regular Americans starting new phases of life: a mother going back to work after years spent raising her kids; a young woman applying for her first job after college; two Spanish-speaking brothers starting their own business together; two men getting married.
The announcement marks an end to the first, awkward phase of Clinton’s roll-out — a non-campaign that has frustrated Democrats who were anxious for her to turn the ignition switch on a presidential run that the party is deeply invested in.
Bloomberg Poll: Democrats & Independents Don’t Want a Hillary Clinton Coronation, Nor Do They Trust Her Email Story
A recent Bloomberg Political poll shows that both Independents and Democrats do not want a Hillary Clinton coronation, instead they want a challenging primary that will vet the Democrat candidate. According to Democrats and independents, 72% of both groups say her party would be best served by a robust primary where she faces a serious challenger for the nomination. This comes just days away from Hillary Clinton formally announcing that she is throwing her crown into the ring for a 2016 presidential run.
What, me lie?
If Hillary Clinton is to become her party’s 2016 presidential nominee, independents and even Democrats overwhelmingly want to see her earn the title, according to a Bloomberg Politics national poll that also shows increasing headwinds for her candidacy.
As Clinton prepared to formally announce her candidacy on Sunday, nearly three-quarters of Democrats and independents in the survey said it would be a good thing for the Democratic Party if she were to face a “serious” challenger for the nomination. Democrats and independents hold the same view, with 72 percent of both groups saying her party would be best served by a robust primary.
What be more damning and problematic for Hillary Clinton is that 53% of respondents stated that she purposely withheld and deleted emails when she was Secretary of State and conducted government business with a person email account and stored them on her own person server. Hillary Clinton would seem to have a trust issue, but sadly, many Democrats don’t seem to care. Even though 53% say she purposely withheld and deleted relevant emails, the same respondents in this poll gave Clinton a 48% net favorable, 44% net unfavorable rating. That can be described as nothing but pathetic and speaks more to the ethically challenged Democrats who would support someone even if they cant be trusted.
But as Hillary Clinton would say, What difference does it make that she is untrustworthy. Neither are her supports.
University of Michigan Cancels ‘American Sniper’ Screening … ‘Made Students Feel Unsafe’ (Update U-M football coach Jim Harbaugh To the Rescue, Movie Back On)
REALLY … Maybe the University of Michigan should change their name from the Wolverines to the “Weenies”.
AMERICA, DO YOU REALIZE YOU ARE BEING DESTROYED FROM WITHIN RIGHT? University of Michigan spokesman Rick Fitzgerald confirmed to The College Fix on Tuesday the movie, American Sniper” was cancelled because it made students feel unsafe. GOOD GRIEF!!! Instead, the University was going to show Paddington the Bear. What kind of gutless cowards exist on college campuses today that continually play the victim card? You people are going to do well in life, but then again, these are the same folks that live in your parents home until your 30. Hey Michigan, you might want to change your fight song to … Hail! to the
victors “victims” valiant. Hail! to the conqu’ring heroes “cowards”.
However, University of Michigan sophomore Jason Weaver still has the right to call himself a Wolverine as he said, “It would be nice to see the university … take a stand against outrageous claims of ‘student exclusion. The film American Sniper in no way creates student exclusion any more than Saving Private Ryan”. You would be 100% correct. But we can’t have anything on a college campus that would properly depict radical Muslims Islamists as Nazi’s.
What a sad state of affairs at our American Universities
University: ‘While our intent was to show a film, the impact of the content was harmful, and made students feel unsafe and unwelcome at our program’
A scheduled movie screening of “American Sniper” at the University of Michigan was abruptly cancelled Tuesday after nearly 300 students and others complained the film perpetuates “negative and misleading stereotypes” against Muslims.
“The movie American Sniper not only tolerates but promotes anti-Muslim … rhetoric and sympathizes with a mass killer,” according to an online letter circulated among the campus community via Google Docs that garnered the signatures.
The signers were mostly students, but also some staff, as well as the Muslim Students’ Association and the president of Students Allied for Freedom and Equality, a Palestinian solidarity group at UMich.
The online memo, titled a “collective letter from Middle Eastern and North African (MENA) and Muslim students on campus,” accused the public university of “tolerating dangerous anti-Muslim and anti-MENA propaganda” by showing the movie, the highest grossing film of 2014.
follows U.S. Navy SEAL Chris Kyle, who served four combat tours in Operation Iraqi Freedom and was awarded two Silver Stars, five Bronze Stars with Valor, two Navy and Marine Corp Achievement Medals, and one Navy and Marine Corps commendation, according to his official Facebook page. But the protestors see him differently.
As reported at the Washington Free Beacon, more than 300 students protested the decision to screen the film because it advanced “negative and misleading stereotypes” against Muslims. The online petition was started by a “Palestinian solidarity group” called the Students Allied for Freedom and Equality and the Muslim Students’ Association. And the university folded like a cheap suit. Um, “negative and misleading stereotypes” … the actions depicted in American Sniper are the truth. I am so sorry if Muslim students can’t handle the truth … what do you think that radical Muslim Islamists act like? So is it a misleading stereotype to depict radical Muslim as savage, beheading murders?
THAN YOU COACH HARBAUGH … FINALLY SOME GUTS COME TO ANN ARBOR, MICHIGAN!!!
For four months, Michigan football coach Jim Harbaugh’s Twitter feed has been a combination of entertainment, opponent tweaks and comments on his team.
Tonight, he walked into a university controversy.
On Tuesday, the university canceled a scheduled Friday night showing of the movie “American Sniper” due to pressure from Muslim and Arab students after a student-led petition drive challenged its depiction of anti-Arab and anti-Muslim sentiments.
After 9:30 p.m., Harbaugh weighed in, with a message to his 215,000 followers.
After a day filled with intense controversy, the University of Michigan reversed course late Wednesday night and decided to show the movie “American Sniper” at its originally scheduled time and place.
“It was a mistake to cancel the showing of the movie ‘American Sniper’ on campus as part of a social event for students,” the statement from E. Royster Harper, the vice president of student life, said. It was sent just after 10:45 p.m. to the media.
“The initial decision to cancel the movie was not consistent with the high value the University of Michigan places on freedom of expression and our respect for the right of students to make their own choices in such matters.
Some one has gone from a tingly feeling up his leg to very, very bitter …
MSNBC’s Chris Matthews loses it again as he went on a tirade for his pathetic network that no one watched, MSNBC, stop airing “Goddamn” right-wing ads. I guess Matthews only wants MSNBC to air only “Goddam” LEFT-wing ads. Matthews denouncing the troubled network for playing commercials paid for by “piggish” conservative groups. Hey Chris, you do realize how a network makes money, right … by commercial ad play? At this point MSNBC would take ad money from Conservatives like Rush Limbaugh and Mark Levine. MSNBC’s needs all the commercial dollars it can get to keep the lights on. But isn’r it great to see Chris Matthews lose it, makes my day.
MSNBC anchor Thomas Roberts ended up under friendly fire on Tuesday when his colleague Chris Matthews launched into a tirade against his own network for airing “goddamn” ads by rightwing groups.
Matthews appeared irritable from the beginning of the segment on Robert’s afternoon show and brushed off small talk with his fellow host.
Matthews said that unlike the “piggish” elites of the Republican Party, average voters who send their children to war would not be interested in more hawkish foreign policy.
“Those people are not impressed by these goddamned ads,” Matthews said, scowling.
“I certainly wouldn’t put them on free, Tom. That’s what we should stop doing,” Matthews added in an apparent reference to the clip that had been played. “Stop running rightwing ads for free on our network.”
Hey Chris Matthews, how’s that far LEFT Obama foreign policy working with Russia, Syria, Libya, Iraq, Afghanistan, Yeman and the list goes on and on and on.
Liberal Democrat Rep. Rosa DeLauro to Give Tax Break for Voluntarily Turning in High-Powered Assault Rifles
What else would you expect from an idiot liberal Democrat … Libs continue their assault on the Second Amendment.
Liberal Connecticut Democrat Rep. Rosa DeLauro has introduced legislation that would pay gun owners with tax breaks for voluntarily turning in their assault rifles. What’s this, another cash for clunkers program? I can see it now, criminals handing over their old and out-dated assault rifles, getting tax payer dollars and going out and buying new and better assault weapons. Just another non-thought out, knew-jerk reaction by liberals to a terrible crime. DeLauro originally introduced the bill in 2013 following the mass shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, CT in December 2012. The legislation failed, but it looks like she is bringing it back again. However, this bill would most likely just fund criminals with better weapons on the tax payer’s dime. Brilliant.
Rosa Delaura made the following comment, spoken like a typical liberal, who has never used a gun and has no respect for the Second Amendment, “Assault weapons are not about hunting, or even self-defense,” DeLauro said. “There is no reason on earth, other than to kill as many people as possible in as short a time as possible, that anyone needs a gun designed for a battlefield.”
Gun owners would receive tax breaks for voluntarily turning in high-powered assault rifles under new legislation proposed Monday.
The Support Assault Firearm Elimination and Education of our (SAFER) Streets Act expected to be reintroduced next week by Rep. Rosa DeLauro (D-Conn.) would provide gun owners with an incentive to turn in their firearms to local police departments.
“Assault weapons are not about hunting, or even self-defense,” DeLauro said. “There is no reason on earth, other than to kill as many people as possible in as short a time as possible, that anyone needs a gun designed for a battlefield.”
Though DeLauro is in favor of stronger guns laws that would completely ban assault weapons and high-capacity ammunition, she emphasized this bill would not force gun owners to turn in their firearms.
The legislation would provide up to $2,000 in tax credits for gun owners who voluntarily hand over assault weapons to their local police departments.
Insatpundit has a better idea, pay welfare recipients $2000 to be sterilized instead and word the legislation identically like this cash for guns bill.
HOW DOES SOMETHING THIS GET BY ALL THE ARMY SCREENING AND SHOWN IN A TRAINING EXERCISE?
During a training exercise at Fort Gordon in Georgia about 400 soldiers of the 67th Signal Battalion where shown a slide that depicted “white privilege” titled “The Luxury of Obliviousness”. REALLY? The slide read, “Race privilege gives whites little reason to pay a lot of attention to African Americans or to how white privilege affects them. To be white in America means not having to think about it.” ARE YOU KIDDING ME? What’s next, the Army soldiers sitting in a circle and singing kumbaya? According to Capt. Lindsay Roman, an Army spokeswoman, the presentation was not authorized, nor was it part of the standard slides shown to soldiers. So then how did it get by the screening process? Things like this just don’t happen, especially in the military.
Army officials are investigating a diversity training briefing at Fort Gordon, Ga., in which a slide about “white privilege” was inappropriately shown to soldiers, according to an Army spokeswoman
The Equal Opportunity briefing took place Thursday for about 400 soldiers of the 67th Signal Battalion, Capt. Lindsay Roman, an Army spokeswoman, said Friday. The slide titled “The Luxury of Obliviousness” has bullet-point items about “white privilege.”
One item reads, “Race privilege gives whites little reason to pay a lot of attention to African Americans or to how white privilege affects them. ‘To be white in America means not having to think about it.’ “
An image of the slide appeared later Thursday on a Facebook page and generated a torrent of negative comments about political correctness run amok.
What’s next sensitivity training for soldiers to love thy radical Islam enemy on the battle field?
Liberal Democrats, LGBT and MSM … You Do Realize that it was President Bill Clinton Who Signed into Law the Federal Religious Freedom Restoration Act (RFRA) in 1993, Right?
TODAY’S DEMOCRATS PARTY IS NOT YOUR FATHER’S DEMOCRAT PARTY, HELL ITS NOT EVEN THE ONE OF 20 YEARS AGO.
Everyone needs to watch the VIDEO below of then Vice-President of the United States Al Gore and President William Jefferson Clinton comments and their gushing over the signing of the Religious Freedom Restoration Act (RFRA) in 1993 (text of HR 1308)and then compare it to the reaction of the Democrat party of today. So as the LGBT crowd is losing their collective minds over the recent passage of Religious Freedom Restoration laws in Indiana and Arkansas with faux-rage, they act like there already is not a federal law that states the same thing and 19 other states that already have their own Religious Freedom Restoration laws. But instead they, Democrats and their willing accomplices in the MSM attack a small business like Memories Pizza instead.
Let’s get some facts straight here as the LGBT community, Democrats and the MSM whine about the passage of a law that was supported by Democrats. Bill Clinton said in 1993 that the federal law would do a better job of protecting Americans of all faiths in the practice of their religion.
- The bill was introduced by Congressman Chuck Schumer (D-NY) on March 11, 1993. You know, that same Chucky Schumer who is supposed to be the next Democrat Senate Minority Leader.
- A companion bill was introduced in the Senate by Ted Kennedy (D-MA) the same day. Yes, Ted Kennedy, the Liberal Lion was for freedom of religion as well.
- It passed 97-3 in the US Senate and on a voice vote in the House.
- President Bill Clinton signed it into law.
Quotes from President Bill Clinton’s speech in signing the Religious Freedom Restoration Act (RFRA) in 1993:
“It is interesting to note that what a broad coalition of Americans came together to make this bill a reality.”
“We all have a shared desire here to protect perhaps the most precious of all American liberties – religious freedom.”
“The free exercise of religion has been called the first freedom – that which originally sparked the full range of the Bill of Rights.”
“Today this event assumes a more majestic quality because of our ability together to affirm the historical role that people of faith have played in the history of this country, and the constitutional protections those that profess and express their faith have always demanded and cherished.”
“What this law basically says is that the government should be held to a very high level of proof before it interferes with someone’s free exercise of religion.” This judgement is shared by the people of the United States and Congress.”
“By honoring the principle that our laws and institutions should not impede or hinder , but should rather protect and preserve fundamental religious liberties.”
“Let us never believe that the freedom of religion imposes on any of us some responsibility to run from our convictions – let us instead respect one another’s faith.”
EXIT QUESTION: JUST CURIOUS, WHAT HAPPENED TO THE DEMICRAT PARTY THAT SO CHANGED THEIR VIEWS WHERE THEY WERE 100% BEHIND RFRA?
Even Democrats who go against the Obama agenda appear to be on Barack’s enemies list …
New Jersey US Senator Robert Menendez was indicted today with on corruption charges in that he used his office to help advance the business interests of a longtime friend and political supporter in exchange for luxury gifts, vacations and campaign donations.? In total, Menendez faces a 14-count indictment consisting of 1 count of conspiracy, 1 count of violating the travel act, 7 counts of bribery, 3 counts of honest services fraud, and 1 count of making false statements. Menendez has denied any wrongdoing and vows to fight the charges, stating that he will be vindicated. While he will not leave office, Menendez will step aside from his position as the top Democrat on the Foreign Relations Committee as he fights the charges.
Sen. Robert Menendez (D-N.J.) was indicted on federal corruption charges Wednesday, accused of using the influence of his office to advance the business interests of a longtime friend and political supporter in exchange for luxury gifts, lavish vacations and more than $750,000 in campaign donations.?
Federal prosecutors laid out the charges in a 14-count indictment charging Menendez with using his office to help Salomon Melgen, a Florida-based eye doctor with whom Menendez had maintained a long personal and political friendship. Menendez intervened on Melgen’s behalf in at least two disputes, one with federal regulators over Medicare charges and the other involving a bid by Melgen to secure a port security contract in the Dominican Republic, according to the indictment.
Prosecutors say that over a seven-year period, Menendez relied on Melgen for free private jets to weekend getaways at resorts in Florida, the Dominican Republic and Paris.
Menendez has repeatedly denied any wrongdoing. He was defiant Wednesday night before a boisterous crowd of supporters, saying that Melgen’s gifts were a result of friendship dating to the early 1990s and not in exchange for political favors.
Just curious, how much of the DOJ’s investigation and indictments against Menendez have to do with political wrongdoing and how much has to do with the fact that he has been a political thorn in Obama’s side? The Democrat Senator has been extremely vocal against Obama’s policy in Cuba and with Iran. Obama probably did not appreciate it when Mendeez said in a Senate Foreign Relations Committee back in January 2015, “the More I hear from the Obama administration and its quotes, the more it sounds like talking points that come straight out of Tehran.” As much as I am not a big fan of Robert Menendez, his words have proved to be profound as we witness Obama’s disastrous nuclear plan with Iran.
