Twice-failed presidential candidate makes ABSURD claims while overseas [Video]

Hillary Clinton

If there is one thing that infuriates Americans more than anything else in the political spectrum, it has to be the idea that Hillary Clinton somehow understands America.

Clinton is known for her chameleon routine, especially when it comes time to prance about the nation asking the liberal left to support her no matter what.  For example, Clinton caught a great deal of flack during her 2016 presidential campaign when video surfaced of the democratic diva donning a wholly phony southern accent while courting voters in South Carolina.

No.  Just no.

It sounds like ol’ Hillary is simply doing a terrible impression of fictional President Frank Underwood from Netflix’s House of Cards, and she is undoubtedly pandering to the southern crowd here.  She’s using her Arkansas sass and ignoring her New York ruthlessness in order to appeal to voters who normally might lean to the conservative end of things.

I don’t know about you, but it just doesn’t sit right with me.  It’s the equivalent of a talking snake to my ears and eyes.

This is all part of the issue with Hillary Clinton and the absurd privilege that she has built for herself; she has no idea how Americans actually live.  Take a statement she made recently in Australia that is equal parts sore loser and fake news.

Twice-failed presidential candidate Hillary Clinton spoke in Melbourne Thursday with Australia’s first female prime minister Julia Gillard. The two discussed misogyny in politics and Clinton yet again blamed sexism for her 2016 loss, implying that the U.S. just couldn’t handle a leader who is a woman.

“There is still a very large proportion of the population that is uneasy with women in positions of leadership,” Clinton told Gillard, “and so the easiest way to kind of avoid having to look at someone on her merits is to dismiss her on her looks.”

Gillard compared the chants of “lock her up” that Clinton faced during the election to “the Salem Witch Trials.”

“There is this fear, there is this anger, even rage about women seeking power, women exercising power and people fall back on these attacks like you’re a witch or you should go to prison,” Clinton agreed. “It’s not a majority, thank goodness, it’s not, but it’s a very vocal minority at least in my country. And sometimes these tropes are very much part of the press coverage.”

This incendiary comment would have made sense crawling out of Clinton’s pie hole back at the end of 2016, but that ship has long sailed.  Did Clinton not receive enough catharsis from her What Happened book tour?

Pence v. Trump 2024? Former Veep Leaves the Door Open

WHOA!

There has been an incredible amount of speculation as to whether or not Donald Trump will be again running for President in 2024, and there are a number of factors still at play that could create seismic shifts in the race to come.

For instance, if Trump’s former Vice President Mike Pence were to decide to run against him in 2024’s primary…

Mike Pence is not ruling out the possibility of going head-to-head with his old boss Donald Trump in a 2024 Republican presidential primary, a new report suggested on Monday.

‘We’ll go where we’re called,’ Pence told the New York Times when asked about the possible head-to-head.

‘That’s the way Karen and I have always approached these things.’

Trump was not thrilled with the idea.

Meanwhile Trump, despite not formally declaring a 2024 bid yet, has eyes on the competition – including Pence.

In a statement to DailyMail.com, his spokesman slammed his old deputy as ‘desperate’ and mocked him for trying to ‘chase’ his ‘lost relevance’ amid the former running mates’ latest divide over backing separate candidates in the Peach State’s gubernatorial election.

Former President Trump is said to be waiting until after the 2022 midterms to make an official announcement regarding 2024, but there have been plenty of hints regarding his potential campaign – the latest of which came from former First Lady Melania Trump.

Verdict Reached in First Russian War Crimes Trial

This is just the first of many, certainly.

Published

on

Russia’s invasion of Ukraine has been a brutal one, and increasingly so as the Kremlin’s soldiers find themselves in more and more trouble of their own making.

As the war grows ever more impossible for Russia to win, the troops sent into Ukraine have been committing a series of worsening atrocities.  It’s terrorism at the least, (and very likely a full-fledge genocide), and it belies just how poorly things are going for Russia.

Now, in the first war crimes trial of the conflict, a verdict has been reached.

In the first of what could be a multitude of war crimes trials held by Ukraine, Russian Sgt. Vadim Shishimarin, 21, was sentenced for the killing of a 62-year-old man who was shot in the head in a village in the northeastern Sumy region in the opening days of the war.

Shishimarin, a member of a tank unit, had claimed he was following orders, and he apologized to the man’s widow in court.

His Ukraine-appointed defense attorney, Victor Ovsyanikov, argued his client had been unprepared for the “violent military confrontation” and mass casualties that Russian troops encountered when they invaded. He said he would appeal.

There was no doubt about the court’s legitimacy, either.

Ukrainian civil liberties advocate Volodymyr Yavorskyy said it was “an extremely harsh sentence for one murder during the war.” But Aarif Abraham, a British-based human rights lawyer, said the trial was conducted “with what appears to be full and fair due process,” including access to an attorney.

Given the sheer amount of heinous deeds the world has witnessed in Ukraine, there is no doubt that more war crimes trials will be coming.
