    Wading through the daily deluge of Hillary Clinton news, I feel like I’m reading the police blotter. The litany of her shameful shenanigans resembles the litany of neighborhood crimes recorded by cops. There are simply too many to stomach.
    There is another similarity, too: In both cases, fear and revulsion are the proper responses from honest Americans.

    More than 17 months before Election Day, Clinton scandals are piling up faster than robberies during a police strike. There is a media feeding frenzy over her shady dealings and the sheer volume of unsavory revelations is approaching a critical mass. The pace of disclosures probably can’t continue, but already she’s looking less and less inevitable.

    Yesterday brought a new batch of bombshells. The Washington Post reported that, in addition to $5 million she earned from her latest book, Clinton earned $11.7 million by delivering 51 speeches since January 2014. The paper reported that she was paid an astonishing $625,000 for two speeches — in one day!

    Stack those facts up against her recent remark that the only answer to income inequality is to “topple” the 1 percent of wealthy Americans, and it’s obvious that she’s long past the point of simple hypocrisy.

    more...

    This dishonest, power hungry whore is obviously a proud member of the wealthiest 1% that she wants to topple. What a hypocrite.icon_mad.gif

    Ah yes,
    Instead of things becoming simpler and contained, they're becoming less simple and far reaching.... just like Watergate.

    __A politically run mega-charity spending 90% of its capital on things other than charity...
    __A secret private email server for a Secretary of State....
    __The lie of using only one "device" for her own simplicity.
    ___The NYT revealed that Clinton used a second private email address to correspond with a political aide and employee of the family charity a longtime Hillary hit man from before Bill became president whom Hillary tried to get in the State Department playing both sides of the street by mixing his consultant business with her diplomatic efforts in Libya...
    __The Wall Street Journal added detail to the paid speech bonanza, saying the list showing total family income of $30 million in 16 months did not include about 100 other speeches where payment went directly to the foundation.
    __Some 30,000 emails are deleted...
    __The foundation is awash in billions in contributions, some secret, from businesses and foreign governments...
    __George Stephanopoulos hiding his donations to the Clinton family slush fund for four years, then lying about the mount he'd donated while he not only headed ABC's news department, moderated political debates but drew a salary as a PAID democratic consultant...
    __Her brother Tony Rodham selling visas to foreigners for $500,000 each... and his involvement with high officials in INS... and his involvement to find investors in a scheme for a gold mine in Jamaica...
    __News today came out that she knew a month ahead there was a plan for violence in Benghazi but when it happened she and the white house insisted it was all about a youtube video... http://www.wsj.com/articles/hillary-clintons-benghazi-emails-to-be-released-by-state-department-1432309888
    __Innumerable donors to the family slush fund who have had pending business with the State Department...

    ...and that's just a fraction of it....

    Here is hoping that more of this information becomes public and a significant number of voters are paying attention. Hopefully this will cost the hapless Hillary ho the democratic nomination and more qualified and trustworthy candidates like Bernie Sanders, Elizabeth Warren, or Martin O'Malley could vie for the democratic nomination. Both Elizabeth Warren and Bernie Sanders could very easily splinter the liberal/progressive vote in the democratic primary which could easily cost the Clinton bimbo the nomination.icon_biggrin.gif

    I love how the GOP is already overplaying their hand. It happens everytime like clockwork.

    Remember Bill Clinton and trying to impeach him? Overplayed your hand, and the backlash has--TO THIS DAY--left Clinton as one of the most, if not the most, beloved President alive.

    Please keep overplaying your hands. It's excellent red meat for the radical GOP base, but does nothing for moderate and swing voters, which are what matters in a national election. So while Texas, Arkansas and Tennessee are smiling, voters in Ohio, Colorado and Florida are left with a bitter taste in their mouth.

    You've already beat Benghazi to death. It's literally a running joke on SNL now. Please do the same with the Clinton Foundation and email servers.

    If Clinton wins the presidency, I suggest you guys move. Not to Canada, which has single-payer healthcare and little appetite for austerity politics.

    Definitely not to the UK or New Zealand or Australia (because some of those same things will haunt you there).

    I'm mainly mentioning these countries because they'll still resemble the comforts you enjoy in the U.S., plus they're mainly English-speaking.

    But the United States will devolve into a shithole of very nearly the exact same country as we have now, with a bunch of shitheads running our government, and a bunch of you getting pissed on by the people you elected while believing it's rain.

    Maybe Iraq? I hear the U.S. is trying to rebuild there.

    Above two messages are examples of how left-wing extremists like to consider their opinion as mainstream. In this case, the Hillary untrustworthy poll results are significant, but extremists discount what doesn't fit their world view. While this can occur with extremists on both sides, the examples on RJ occur on the left. Amusing to see how the psychological studies so clearly apply to folks here.

    Extremists more willing to share ideas / believe more people agree with them than is true

    You're a whack job. You're citing to YOUR opinion that says "both liberals and conservatives have opinions, BUT I THINK, the liberals are more extreme, and I HAPPEN TO BE CONSERVATIVE, therefore liberals are extreme."

    You're remedial dude.

    You clearly missed the point, again. In general, as the study indicates, the extremist behavior applies to extremists of both sides. My point was that on RJ the extremists are generally on the left, you being an example.

    I don't think you are capable of processing that even if you disagree.

    The number of actual conservatives on RJ is small (albeit voluble). It is therefore not a valid comparison. There are certainly more left-leaning people on RJ, as one might expect on a gay website, just as one might expect, say, the NRA website to have a predominantly right-leaning membership.

    I suspect the majority of gay people (and a lot of non-gay people) perceive the idea of being gay and right-wing as pretty extreme in itself.

    what countries like the US, the UK and Canada need is real investment, not some bullshit fake housing boom like Clinton and Bush tried to pull off or a restructuring of healthcare that created a bunch of shitty low-paying jobs like Obama did

    Canada and the UK pretty much did the same nonsense

    central banks in all 3 countries just misallocate capital into the banking sector, energy and the markets

    and it didn't work (unless you're in the top 5%)

    And it's worth noting that NONE of them have disputed or replied to the points and facts presented here... they're just pulling the meaningless party talking points wagon.

    Sorry Bob, but you are not chairing your widget production committee now. People can discuss whatever they like here. You and the other conservatives here are always happy to go off on a tangent when it suits you.

    I'm inclined to agree with what I bolded/colored and extend it to the $863 billion in the 2nd stimulus bill that did NOTHING for the entire middle class while producing an inordinate number of start ups for "green" industries that have all gone bankrupt and produced nothing but bucks in the pockets of political cronies - and projects with no benefit to the economy.

    Like these out of over 4,000 examples....

    *The U.S. government handed over a staggering $54 million in “stimulus cash” to Connecticut’s politically-connected Mohegan Indian tribe, which runs one of the highest grossing casinos in the country.

    *Syracuse professor of psychology Michael Carey received $219,000 in federal stimulus money for a study that examines the sex patterns of college women.

    *$1.15 million in stimulus funds was allocated for the installation of a new guard rail around the non-existent Optima Lake in Oklahoma.

    *A dinner cruise company in Chicago got nearly $1 million in stimulus funds to combat terrorism.

    *One Denver developer received $13 million in tax credits to construct a senior housing complex despite that fact that the same developer is being sued as a slumlord for running rodent-infested apartment buildings in the city of San Francisco.

    *A liberal theater in Minnesota named “In the Heart of the Beast” (in reference to a well known quote by communist radical Che Guevara) received $100,000 for socially conscious puppet shows.

    *California’s inspector general found that $1 million in stimulus funds for a program to give summer jobs to young people was improperly used for overhead expenses such as rent and utility bills.

    *Landon Cox, a Duke University assistant professor of computer science, was awarded $498,000 in stimulus money to study Facebook.

    I then realized it was from the New York Post. It’s the New York Post – what do you expect? It was all right-wing radical fantasy. Again, its the New York Post – typical Murdoch News Corporation propaganda. Nobody with an IQ over 50 buys into any of this nonsense. But then I saw the bio of the columnist – a Pulitzer winner, and he is writing this trash? Sad indeed.

    Quoting the New York Post is like quoting the National Enquirer. Owned by Rupert Murdoch, it has about as much credibility as his other gem, Fox News.

    So this whole exercise is just a waste of time. We might as well be debating Hillary through the eyes of the Republican National Committee.

    You conservatives should be supporting Hillary. If she wins the Democratic ticket she'd guarantee that we'd get a Republican president.   icon_confused.gif

    I'm optimistic that we Democrats will pick a more president-worthy candidate by the time the elections roll around.

    Just wrong!

    Here's a scientific study, not a partisan report.


    "Overall, and from a holistic perspective, our findings suggest that the stimulus programs had a positive effect on the RE sector. With due uncertainties the findings revealed significant (or immediate) growth in investments, installations, and contribution to the energy supply from RE sources. ARRA-specific projects played a significant role in new RE installations. The stimulus programs helped to boost manufacturing capacity and the RE supply chain, particularly for large wind (where domestic manufacturing supports stable deployment through logistical savings [110]). While RE played a role in CO2 reductions, other short term factors, notably the economic crisis, were also highly influential in decreasing emissions from energy [71]. This in turn contributed to a decline in CO2 emissions and carbon intensity. Estimates indicated positive employment effects and increased revenue in the RE sector. However, with so many different programs, each with a different focus there was also evidence of misalignment and missed opportunities for them to work together. For example, the development of RE technology was incentivized early in the stimulus, while more time was needed to train employees for the new jobs associated with its deployment."

    oh really? is that why 25 banks needed bailing out due to shitty mortgage portfolios and 10-15 million people got foreclosed upon? what fucking planet are you on? the Clinton/Bush housing nightmare was a complete fiasco. even GM needed bailing out because it had more money tied up in RE loans (GMAC Mortgage RE) than it did making cars

    and Obama hasn't done shit besides restructure 24% of the economy (e.g. healthcare) and pump billions into fracking
