POWERLINE sets up the following video of Hillary 2020:
Somewhere in the last day or two I happened across an article online somewhere speculating that Hillary Clinton will be the Democratic nominee again in 2020, because she’s the ultimate victim (of Russian hacking, Trump’s mendacity, whatever), and since the Democrats prize victimhood as the highest credential these days, she’s the obvious standard bearer. Plus, she’s a Clinton, with a Gollum-like fanaticism for precious power. Who can doubt that she think he third time will be the charm, even for someone so obviously charmless.
Oh please, please, can this wonderful scenario come to pass. We could look forward to more reprises of her “deplorables” remark, in this case, just now saying that she won the “forward-looking” parts of America in 2016. I just can’t understand why her message wasn’t more compelling in rural parts of America…..
S.E. Cupp (a #nevertrumper) explains her disdain for Hillary… renewed (NEWSBUSTERS):
Well, Hillary is as out of touch as ever. The former presidential nominee has never been able to hide her disdain for middle America. She once again suggested that Trump supporters are racist misogynist backward xenophobes over the weekend. And it’s been 490 days since she lost the 2016 election.
If we are to be mothered, mother must know best. . . . In every age the men who want us under their thumb, if they have any sense, will put forward the particular pretension which the hopes and fears of that age render most potent. They ‘cash in.’ It has been magic, it has been Christianity. Now it will certainly be science. . . . Let us not be deceived by phrases about ‘Man taking charge of his own destiny.’ All that can really happen is that some men will take charge of the destiny of others. . . . The more completely we are planned the more powerful they will be.
Of all tyrannies, a tyranny exercised for the good of its victims may be the most oppressive. It may be better to live under robber barons than under omnipotent moral busybodies. The robber baron’s cruelty may sometimes sleep, his cupidity may at some point be satiated; but those who torment us for our own good will torment us without end for they do so with the approval of their own conscience. They may be more likely to go to Heaven yet at the same time likelier to make a Hell of earth. Their very kindness stings with intolerable insult. To be ‘cured’ against one’s will and cured of states which we may not regard as disease is to be put on a level of those who have not yet reached the age of reason or those who never will; to be classed with infants, imbeciles, and domestic animals.
I just wish to point out that when Sally Kohn says “67% of Americans get their news from NPR,” she is making up stats. In fact, i asked this of Miss Kohn on her blog:
Sally, maybe you can contact me on a statement you made in a discussion with SE Cupp and show me the sources/references to this statement: “A majority of Americans, 67% get there news from NPR or PBS. And it is — according to poll(s) [*plural*] — thee most trusted source in news.”
Howard Kurtz should apologize to conservative author S. E. Cupp for how he and his fellow panelists treated her on Sunday’s “Reliable Sources.”
As Cupp via a satellite feed tried to explain the point Delaware Republican senatorial candidate Christine O’Donnell was making about the First Amendment during last week’s debate with Chris Coons, those in the studio could be heard in the background laughing…
Okay, well why don’t take Page’s advice and read the First Amendment:
Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.
See anything in there about the separation of church and state?
I have compiled some info on this, but before I post it, lets hear Landmark Legal Foundation President Mark R. Levin take talk about this on his radio show:
