Hillary Clinton Hits the Sunday Talk Shows as Her Poll Numbers Tank … Uses Victimhood Excuse Again and the Vast Rightwing Conspiracy
NOT ONLY IS HILLARY CLINTON’S CAMPAIGN OLD AND TRIED, SO ARE HER POLITICAL EXCUSES …
The buck certainly does not stop with Hillary … Why would anyone vote for Hillary Clinton when all she does is blame every one else for her troubles, scandals and woe? With her poll numbers tanking and the once sure-fire Democrat presidential nominee in serious trouble, Hillary took to the Sunday Talk shows to tell the people she is trustworthy and transparent. However, NBC’s ‘Meet the Press’ Chuck Todd presented Clinton with a montage of her political flip-flops for political expediency. Not only does she blame the IT folks and her lawyers for dealing with her emails, she also brought up her old favorite … her email scandal is a right-wing conspiracy. Good grief Hillary, go back to the 90′s.
How can the United States ever elect such a dishonest individual as president? Its bad enough the American people don’t trust politicians, but Hillary may just be the face of that establishment, say anything for a vote, pander to the people politician.
Meet the Press host Chuck Todd set the stage for Hillary to explain her flip flops over the decades by showing a montage of clips from yesteryear. Hillary, clearly prepared for the video and the line of questioning, assured Todd that her flip flops are not political expediency but are instead the same as Obama’s “evolution” on issues. Watch:
The goal here, I think, is to let her address the issues that matter to the Democrat base—her Iraq war vote, same-sex “marriage,” and the Keystone pipeline—and get them out of the way so she can move forward without them hanging over her head. What better way to sell this than as the same moves Obama made with such success among the party’s base?
Other segments of the interview didn’t go quite as well for Hillary (here’s the transcript of the interview). Her claims of victimhood (that vast rightwing conspiracy yet again), transparency, and ignorance didn’t sit well with many viewers, including Ron Fournier of The National Journal and Andrew Stiles of The Washington Free Beacon.
Two Boys, Eddie & Larry, Missing Since 9/22/15 from Boalsburg, PA Found by Reporter Covering Their Disappearance
WHEN THE MEDIA DOES A GREAT THING … KUDOS to Centre Daily Times reporter Shawn Annarelli!!!
Nine year old Eddie and 7 year old Larry had been missing since Tuesday, September 22, 2015 in Boalsburg, PA. The State College Police Department stated that the two children were last seen waiting for their school bus in Boalsburg around 7:30 a.m. on Tuesday.
Eddie is 9 years old, about 4’8″ inches tall, and was last seen wearing a bright blue fleece jacket, a blue, green and white backpack, dark blue jeans, glasses and sneakers with bright yellow laces.
Larry is 7 years old, about 3’4″inches tall, and was last seen wearing a grey sweatshirt, brown sweatpants, blue sneakers, and a grey and black backpack with a spider design.
An amazing thing happened to Shawn Annarelli, a reporter for the Centre Daily Times who was covering the story of the missing boys, he not only found himself covering the story of the missing boys, he found the two missing boys. FANTASTIC JOB!!! This is what happens when the MSM decides to do investigative journalism and not just lazily report on a story and go through the motions. It is not very often we make a member of the media, the hero of the week, however, Shawn Annarelli certainly deserves it. A JOB WELL DONE SIR!!!
Centre Daily Times reporter Shawn Annarelli was reporting on two missing brothers, aged seven and nine, who were supposed to board a school bus in Boalsburg on Tuesday morning but never showed up for class.
While covering the story, he set out to find a police officer to chat with, he told INSIDE EDITION.
“I was about 15 yards away from the rest of the media. I was going to talk to a police officer… when I hear two voices and see some rustling leafs,” he said.
Annarelli decided to follow the sounds and movement into the wooded area near the search party.
“I said to myself ‘What if? What if they’re right there?’” he recalled. “I made my way down (a) little path and after I turned one of these tiny little bends, I see two kids crouching down as far as they could and two full backpacks sticking up. I thought ‘Sweet! I got them!’ and then I thought ‘Oh no, I got them.”

ANOTHER DUST UP BETWEEN TRUMP AND FOX NEWS …
As reported at The Hill, Donald Trump has put a moratorium on Fox News interviews. Donald Trump took to Twitter and tweeted … @FoxNews has been treating me very unfairly & I have therefore decided that I won’t be doing any more Fox shows for the foreseeable future. In essence Basically Fox News called Trump “stale” and “tiresome”. Hmm really? As the BPR opines, those are two words not normally associated with the man who energized Republican primary politics this year. Sorry, love Trump or hate him … support him, like his brashness or think he is the worst thing in the world, it is obvious these days that FOX News has become like its competitors that they have railed against in the MSM for so long. FOX News has an agenda for establishment Republicans and the Carl Rove types.
GOP presidential front-runner Donald Trump said Wednesday he will not appear on Fox News programs “for the foreseeable future,” claiming he was unfairly treated.
Trump did not detail the alleged unfair treatment.
But Fox News said the “boycott” followed its cancellation of an appearance by the outspoken real estate mogul on Bill O’Reilly’s show on Thursday.
“At 11:45 am today, we canceled Donald Trump’s scheduled appearance on The O’Reilly Factor on Thursday, which resulted in Mr. Trump’s subsequent tweet about his ‘boycott’ of FOX News,” a Fox News spokesperson said in a statement.
“The press predictably jumped to cover his tweet, creating yet another distraction from any real issues that Mr. Trump might be questioned about,” the statement continued.
“When coverage doesn’t go his way, he engages in personal attacks on our anchors and hosts, which has grown stale and tiresome. He doesn’t seem to grasp that candidates telling journalists what to ask is not how the media works in this country,” the spokesperson added.
Trump targeted O’Reilly in a series of tweets on Monday night, saying O’Reilly featured the “same old Trump haters.”

GOP Debate II: Donald Trump’s Best Liunes and Zingers of the CNN Republican Debate … “He (Obama) Just Doesn’t Have Courage, There is Something Missing From Our President.”
Republican GOP Debate on CNN …
It was the Donald Trump show once again as all of the other GOP candidates tried to knock The Donald off his perch. However, as usual Trump got off some zingers and lines that will be covered by the media in the post-debate analysis. Probably his best ones were pointed at Jeb Bush, especially when he said the following … “Your brother and your brother’s administration gave us Barack Obama.” Followed up with the disappointment with George W. Bush’s presidency made it impossible to elect a Republican to succeed him: “It was such a disaster those last three months that Abraham Lincoln couldn’t have been elected.”
Love him, hate him or if you are indifferent, Trump has a point.
Donald Trump did it again. After an explosive first debate in which Trump clashed with the moderators and stole the show, the bomb-throwing frontrunner came out swinging at the second Republican debate in Simi Valley, California, on Wednesday. He dissed Rand Paul (twice), put down George Pataki and hit Jeb Bush with a backhanded compliment. He also had plenty of praise — for himself and his business record.
Here are his 14 most quotable lines from the second Republican debate. (read here)
- As you know, these commentaries are pre-recorded so I don’t know at the time of recording how the debate went. I do know that CNN is hoping for some “fireworks” between candidates as it would be good for ratings!
