Hillary Flips! Has NOT Ruled Out 2020 Despite Clearly Saying So on Monday

Clinton’s motivations for lollygagging are just as sinister as you might imagine.

Hillary Clinton

Just yesterday, the conservative world did a little dance, and maybe even had a small smirk on their face after Hillary Clinton dropped a bombshell.

The former Secretary of State announced emphatically that she would not be seeking the Oval Office yet again in 2020.  While this wasn’t necessarily surprising given her long and contentious career in the DC Swamp, it did offer us the hope of being spared of her presence in the coming months.

Now, similar to Clinton’s shuffling views on border security, the Hillary is backtracking on her statement, and leaving the door wide open once again.

A source “close with” Hillary Clinton says she has not “close[d] the door” on a 2020 presidential run.

This, obviously, is a complete reversal of what she said in an interview Monday.

“I’m not running,” she told News 12, “but I’m going to keep working and speaking and standing up for what I believe.”

Then came the pseudo-explanation, and the reason why is infuriating.

Even when asked about running for another kind of elected office, for governor or mayor, Clinton laughed it off and said, “I don’t think so.”

But now, just two days later, Clinton appears to regret making those comments, and her team is leaking a walk-back through a friendly anti-Trump reporter.

“Spoke to someone close with Clinton in contact with her today. They say she wasn’t trying to be emphatic and close the door on running when she spoke to a local reporter yesterday, and that she was surprised by how definitively it played,” the far-left Maggie Haberman of the New York Times tweeted Tuesday night.

Here’s the kicker….

“The person also says she is extremely unlikely to run, but that she remains bothered that she’s expected to close the door on it when, say, John Kerry isn’t. She has told her team she is waiting at least to see the Mueller report,” Haberman added…

Clinton waiting on the Mueller report is the equivalent of the democratic party using a pinch-hitter in a favorable pitching matchup; it certainly isn’t a player whose quality has earned them a starting position, but can be used to inflict damage only in a lopsided contest.

And we know just how much Hillary Clinton loves lopsided contests thanks to the Wikileaks revelations regarding the 2016 primaries.

Apple Backs Down, Will Allow Parler Back on App Store

The news is seen as a major boost for the First Amendment.

Free speech is a fickle thing, and precious too.  If we’re not careful, it can be stripped away but those who hide behind the claim that a “private” company can limit your personal freedoms. Twitter, Facebook, and other social media platforms are almost always the culprits here, bending the algorithmic reach of those with whom they disagree. Enter Parler:  A free speech app where only the bare legal minimum of content would be moderated. The platform became incredibly popular with an astonishing swiftness, but soon faced trouble from companies who had previously aligned themselves with Facebook and Twitter’s more controlling stance. Apple, who had previously booted Parler from its App Store, has now relented to the Constitution. Apple has approved Parler’s return to the iOS app store following improvements the social media company made to better detect and moderate hate speech and incitement, according to a letter the iPhone maker sent to Congress on Monday. The decision clears the way for Parler, an app popular with conservatives including some members of the far right, to be downloaded once again on Apple devices. The letter — addressed to Sen. Mike Lee and Rep. Ken Buck and obtained by CNN — explained that since the app was removed from Apple’s platform in January for violations of its policies, Parler “has proposed updates to its app and the app’s content moderation practices.” On April 14, Apple’s app review team told Parler that its proposed changes were sufficient, the letter continued. Now, all Parler needs to do is to flip the switch. The news is seen as a major boost for the First Amendment.

Oath Keeper Leader Claims Police are Training Militias for ‘Civil War’

And the FBI seems to agree with him!

At the very end of the first term of Donald Trump’s presidency, we were as close to a civil war as this nation has come in over a dozen decades, and we may not fully appreciate that yet.  We are, perhaps, too close to the events themselves to fully understand just how narrowly we escaped a broader calamity, but we must try to remain vigilant still. Especially if what one of the leaders of the Oath Keepers says is true. The far-right paramilitary the Oath Keepers is home to active-duty law-enforcement officers who are training up other members to prepare for civil war, according to one of the group’s top figures. CBS News’ 60 Minutesprofiled the the increasingly notorious militia on Sunday night, and one of its leaders from Arizona, Jim Arroyo, spoke openly about the close involvement of police officers. “Our guys are very experienced,” said Arroyo. “We have active-duty law enforcement in our organization that are helping to train us. We can blend in with our law enforcement and in fact, in a lot of cases, our training is much more advanced because of our military backgrounds.” And the government seems to already be away of this. Arroyo’s statement was backed up by Javed Ali, an ex-National Security Council senior director and FBI counterterrorism official, who said the Oath Keepers are a “unique and challenging” threat to the U.S. because a “large percentage have tactical training and operational experience in either the military or law enforcement. That at least gives them a capability that a lot of other people in this far-right space don’t have.” Several members of the Oath Keepers were arrested during the January 6th Capitol riot, as they attempted to prevent the certification of the results of the 2020 election by Congress.
