5 Year Old Tweet from Hillary And People Still Talk About It

Western Journal

Published

on

Hillary Clinton spent years clawing her way to the top of the political food chain only to be bested at the 11th hour by real estate mogul and reality TV star Donald J. Trump — and once again we get to bask in the glory of her prideful tweet that came before an epic fall.

Each year on Oct. 26, we get to remember the former secretary of state’s birthday with the tweet she shared that will haunt her forever.

“Happy birthday to this future president,” she wrote from her official account that day in 2016 (no word if it was on her illegal email server, however).

The accompanying photo shows a cute but determined little girl who would grow up to marry Bill Clinton, a philandering lawyer whose coattails she would ride from the Arkansas Governor’s Mansion to the White House.

But by October 2016 she had found herself on the precipice of history, just one Election Day from taking the presidency in her own right — or so she thought.

Sure, Hillary had lost the chance before when Democrats threw her over for then-Sen. Barack Obama, who would go on to take the oath of office in 2009, but this time all of the signs were pointing to a win for the former first lady.

Pollsters pegged her as a shoo-in, giving her anywhere from a 70 percent to a 99 percent chance of winning, Pew Research reported, and she’d take office with the added distinction of becoming the first female president.

But when election night rolled around and the results started pouring in, her excitement turned to anxiety then into despair: Trump went on to become the 45th president of the United States, and Clinton became a second-time loser in what was almost certainly her last chance at the office.

The collective meltdown from the left was glorious as election night turned into the morning after, but the ire and strife would all culminate triumphantly in the wailing of Jessica Starr as Trump was officially inaugurated months later, ITV reported.



Clinton would reluctantly concede the election and retreat to Chappaqua, New York, where lucky hikers would spot her wandering in the woods thereafter, according to The Washington Post.

She would go on to blame whoever and whatever she could think of — sexism, Russian interference in the election, you name it — but the fact was that America just couldn’t stand her.

Besides being a radical leftist, an opportunistic hanger-on and possibly sick, Hillary Clinton was just terribly unlikeable.

That cute little girl whose picture she shared so hopefully in 2016 would grow up to be a shrill, haggard, swamp-dwelling failed Democratic presidential candidate.

Clinton would surely like to forget all about this tweet, but the internet is forever. So, we take this opportunity to graciously wish her a happy fifth anniversary of a social media post that almost makes us feel bad for her — almost.

Like the stuff of Greek tragedy, her hubris in that post epitomized the perfectly dramatic, epic fall from triumph to obscurity — and we’re more than happy to relive it all over again.

Epstein Pilot Drops Names of Who Flew on Jet, Including 2 Presidents and a Prince – But That’s Not All

Western Journal

Published

It was high living, Jeffrey Epstein-style.

Jurors in the sex-trafficking trial of Ghislaine Maxwell, sometime paramour and longtime associate of the deceased financier and convicted sex offender, got a glimpse this week of some of the circles Epstein traveled in before his death in a federal prison cell more than two years ago.

And as a former pilot on Epstein’s private jet testified, his acquaintances included some of the most famous men in the world.

It wasn’t just former President Bill Clinton who logged significant flying time on the plane known as “The Lolita Express.”

How much time Clinton actually spent is a matter of dispute. He admits to being on four flights; flight records show at least 26.

Raise your hand if you automatically believe Bill Clinton about anything. (Your left hand.)

It wasn’t just former President Donald Trump, who banned Epstein from his estate in Mar-a-Lago in Palm Beach County, Florida, and is known to have flown on the Epstein jet just once.

It wasn’t even just Prince Andrew of the British royal family whom pilot Lawrence Paul Visoski Jr. remembered flying around the world.

During his testimony Tuesday, according to the New York Post, Visoski also dropped the names of several well-known figures.

John Glenn, the first American to orbit the earth in space who later became a Democratic United States senator from Ohio, was mentioned, along with former Sen. George Mitchell, the Democrat from Maine best known for helping lead the 9/11 Commission into the terrorist attacks on New York and Washington in 2001 and forging a lasting, if occasionally tenuous, peace in Northern Ireland.

There were also big names from the world of entertainment like internationally known violinist Itzhak Perlman and — perhaps not so surprisingly — actor Kevin Spacey, a man with a reputation nearly as bad as Bill Clinton’s.

Having big names on board is probably par for the course when you’re a pilot for a man as wealthy as Epstein was before his death (if he wasn’t a billionaire, he was worth hundreds of millions, according to a Fortune article from 2019.)

But there’s no doubt the big names Epstein associated with are regretting their acquaintance with the man who pleaded guilty in 2008 to procuring a minor for prostitution as a way to settle accusations of multiple sex crimes.

While Maxwell’s trial — and Visoski’s testimony — provides liberals with a finger-pointing opportunity to claim Trump had an involvement with Epstein, the situation for Bill Clinton is worse.

His relationship with Epstein was closer (Epstein favored Democrats), he flew on Epstein’s plane much more often and, realistically speaking, his reputation for sexual misbehavior is not only worldwide, it’s a matter of historical record.

(In fact, it was just featured in the FX drama “Impeachment: An American Crime Story”).

It would be hard to find an honest American who would claim true surprise to hear of anything the 42nd president might have done when it comes to the fairer sex.

But for all of Epstein’s associates — very much including Prince Andrew — the trial of Ghislaine Maxwell on charges of procuring underage girls to satisfy the late financier’s unnatural sexual urges has to be opening up some very unwelcome cans of worms.

As Epstein showed before his “suicide” more than two years ago, the higher anyone flies, the farther, and harder, the fall.

Photo: Here’s the Creepy Ghislaine Maxwell Moment Court Illustrator Caught – It Will Haunt You

Western Journal

Published

on

Jane Rosenberg, a court artist currently covering the trial of Ghislaine Maxwell, captured a rather haunting image during a pre-trial hearing in New York City.

Maxwell currently faces several charges related to her alleged participation in the many sex crimes committed by notorious financier Jeffrey Epstein, who is now deceased.

According to Reuters, as court artists drew their sketches of Maxwell, she stared right back at them and, in turn, made sketches of the artists.

Rosenberg depicted this in one of her illustrations of the proceedings.

“Ghislaine Maxwell, the Jeffrey Epstein associate accused of sex trafficking, makes a sketch of court artists while seated between defense attorneys Bobbi Sternheim and Jeffrey Pagliuca, during a pre-trial hearing ahead of jury selection, in a courtroom sketch in New York City, U.S.,” Reuters wrote in its description of the illustration.

Apparently, this was not a first for Rosenberg.

The accomplished courtroom artist told The Western Journal that, during the trial of Lev Parnas — a Ukrainian-American businessman who was convicted on charges related to violating campaign finance laws — one of the co-defendants drew a sketch of her.

“Maybe I got more interesting looking since [the] pandemic?” Rosenberg told The Western Journal in an email.

As it turns out, Rosenberg had actually drawn sketches of Epstein as well during a few pre-trial hearings.

“There wasn’t a trial,” she told the New York Post. “So it was just a few hearings before he killed himself, or didn’t kill himself.”

Rosenberg noted that she’s very careful to make sure her drawings are not too judgemental.

“I have to hear the facts before I make a judgment on how I would vote,” she said.

Despite this, she told the Post what she thought of Epstein.

“He’s totally a sicko, weirdo,” she said.

Many of the crimes committed by Epstein — of which Maxwell is alleged to be a conspirator — appear rather sick by any standard.

On Wednesday, the first of Maxwell’s accusers — identified as “Jane” — gave graphic testimony related to the abuse she had allegedly suffered at the hands of both Epstein and Maxwell.

According to Jane, Maxwell not only groomed her for sexual abuse but also participated in the abuse herself.

“I was abused pretty much every time that I would go over to his house, and it all started to seem the same after a while — whether it was just him or there were other women involved, or me and Jeffrey and Ghislaine, it all started to seem the same,” Jane testified.

“After a while, you just become numb to it.”
