I was at Powerline giggling at his post “I wonder whose Kissinger Now” not just because it’s a clever valentines’ play on words but because it illustrates another Hillary as the candidate from hell:
In New Hampshire, Clinton lost with every age demographic except 65 years and older. By embracing Kissinger, she risks losing some Democratic support within that cohort.
But in the end I don’t think it will cost her many of those votes because to many feminists Hillary Clinton isn’t a candidate, she’s the head of their cult.
A cult that claims to respect women but was willing to ignore when Hillary enabled Bill’s destruction of the women he bedded and abandoned or failed to bed and decided to destroy.
A cult that claims to worry about income inequality but never questioned her miraculous ability to make a fortune in cattle futures.
A cult that claims to be opposed to crony capitalism but didn’t question the money connected people gave to her foundation who got access
A cult that claims to value honesty but bought every single excuse concerning her email server and never questioned her multiple explanations on Benghazi.
A cult that claims to want equality for the little guy but doesn’t question her willingness to violate rules that others have been prosecuted for.
A cult that celebrates experience but ignores her repeated failures as secretary of state and the dangerous world it has left us.
To the people in that cult, namely the MSM none of these things are a reason to oppose Hillary Clinton and frankly in that 65+ age group there is nothing that will cause them to leave the reservation, they sold their souls back in 1998 and to abandon Hillary would mean they did so for nothing.
Because the truth is it’s not about Hillary Clinton, it’s about themselves.
Of course the problem for the Clinton campaign is there might not be enough of these voters left for her to win.
Seattle keeps getting mugged by reality, first by the results of raising the minimum wage and now this:
According to KING-TV, a man undressed in a women’s locker room on February 8, citing a new state rule that allows people to choose a bathroom based on gender identity.
Seattle Parks and Recreation says a man wearing shorts entered the women’s locker room at Evans Pool and took off his shirt. Women alerted staff, who told the man to leave, but he said, “the law has changed and I have a right to be here.”
So of course they let him stay then…
The man later returned a second time while young girls were changing for swim practice. No arrests were made, according to the KING-TV report.
A Seattle Parks spokesman says they’re still working on the issue.
ARE YOU KIDDING ME?
Now in a sane world the answer to the issue would be grabbing the man by the scruff of the neck and tossing him out on his ass, but in the world of liberalism preventing a man from going into a woman’s locker room while young women are changing is an act of bigotry and you won’t want to be called a bigot would you.
Team Cruz supposedly made a “feverish bid” for her support, pitching her on the idea that her criticism of Trump in her SOTU rebuttal had damaged her populist cred and backing Cruz would be one way to restore it. Team Jeb had been courting her for ages, believing that Haley’s backing would have been a shot of credibility for his candidacy that Bush could take to his wavering donors as proof that even the party’s young stars still believe he’s in this thing. (George W. Bush made a point of complimenting Haley in his speech at Jeb’s rally this week.) I wonder what would have happened if either of them had showed some strength in recent polls of SC. If Cruz and Trump were neck and neck with Rubio a distant third, Haley might have concluded that Rubio was on his way out of the race and it was Cruz or bust. If, on the other hand, Jeb was neck and neck with Rubio for third, that might have been enough for Haley to roll the dice on him as the center-right’s best chance. As it is, despite his setback in New Hampshire, Rubio’s done well enough lately to make him the safest pick for Haley.
Now endorsements are nice they make a great photo op and conventional wisdom say they are big, but as I recall from the NFL playoffs conventional wisdom said the Patriots would defeat Denver who currently possess the Lombardy Trophy (although in fairness Tom Brady was a 2 pt conversion away after one of the most dramatic comeback TD’s in history with seconds left to proving them all right).
Or to put it another way, while on Twitter Robio fans are, with reason, crowing, none of these endorsements mean a thing unless Rubio wins
When Rubio gets an endorsement from the voters and wins a primary then tweet me about endorsements @BenjiBacker@GayPatriot
“He has the very popular sitting governor, very popular junior senator, very popular upstate congressman. He has every favorable position going for him that he could ever hope to have,” Miller said of Rubio. “If Rubio can’t win here, under these favorable circumstances, where can he win?”
This is smart spin, aimed at inflating Rubio’s expectations in the run-up to Saturday’s primary. It’s also an entirely fair observation. Rubio’s team insists they are focused on winning a long-term delegate fight against Trump and Cruz. Yet both of those candidates have already notched wins. Sooner or later, to sustain the perception of viability, Rubio will need to win somewhere. And it’s not unreasonable to ask, as Miller did: If Rubio can’t win here, with most of the state’s Republican apparatus supporting him, where can he?
Think about that a second, in every poll I’ve seen out of SC Rubio trails Trump by a ton and Cruz by a little. Even Rubio can’t beat Trump in SC where can he beat him and if he finishes behind Cruz then it’s even worse.
Or to put it another way, after SC Trump and Cruz are likely to win place or show in every primary to this point, even with a win Marco will not be able to say that and if he finishes 2nd he barely shows himself more viable than John Kasich.
That’s inspiring as hell isn’t it?
On the bright side, even if he finishes 3rd he’s still doing better than Jeb.
Update: Cue Julie Andrews
Or Audrey Hepburn
C’mom Marco show me
Update 2: Yes I know Marni Nixon dubbed her in the movie here is the soundtrack
I was laid off last night from my 3rd shift job so my plan to use said job to pay the mortgage while using the site to get out of debt in a couple of years is out the window. When I say I could use a hand right now I’m not kidding.
Since we all know the rosey description of the Obama economy by the MSM is BS to those who have kicked in (particularly subscribers), thanks much.
If however you have not & are both able and inclined I’d really appreciate it if you’d help us either close January strong or start February stronger by hitting DaTipJar.
That gets all the bills paid. Consider Subscribing 100 Subscribers at $20 a month will get the job done and then some.

It’s a good thing that The Few Sacrificed so much to prevent the Nazi’s from conquering England and installing a government that would punish men for saying what they think. Perhaps they shouldn’t have bothered.
Police have arrested a 40-year old man in Scotland over a number of allegedly “offensive” Facebook posts about refugees.
Police in Scotland said that a man had been held under the Communications Act, which bans “grossly offensive” and “menacing” posts on online platforms.
Ahhh those quaint old days when England believed in personal freedoms. Pam Geller is right, the nation that gave us Magna Carta is dead. Perhaps we should strike the “Great” from Great Britain
That this happened in Scotland is even more interesting, Can you picture a Scotsman being arrested for speaking his mind? I’m sure Edward Longshanks would have approved. No wonder so many Scots came to America.
This is coming to America, have no doubt about it and don’t doubt for a second that there are people on the Supreme Court right now who would go along with it.
