Hillary Clinton Tantrum On Losing The Presidential Election

Posted in America, Britain, British Humour, Canada, European Union, Insanity, Modern World, News, Politics, President with tags , , , on 18/02/2017 by floroy1942

I received a piece about Hillary Clinton through my e-mail and wondered if its true. Sounds to me like it could be but who knows. You can make up your own minds.

Hillary Clinton’s post election celebration plans included hundreds of thousands of dollars worth of fireworks, live performances by various celebrities, such as Cher, who came believing that Hillary was going to win the  election, a five-hundred-thousand-dollar special effect glass ceiling that she  would break through in a dramatic display once she walked out on stage at her H.Q., among millions of dollars worth of other celebratory preparations, all paid for by the Clinton Foundation in full.
The most notable damage was located deep in the VIP room of the Clinton camp. A custom  150 inch ultra HD TV, a gift from the Saudi Arabian government, was found with a broken screen. The damage was caused by a $950,000 bottle of champagne that was believed to have been thrown at the screen by the former presidential candidate some time during the election. Even hubby Bill is reportedly terrified of her screaming tantrums.
Early in the morning, the custodial staff were greeted by flipped-over tables as the floors were covered with expensive food, drinks, and appetizers. Broken champagne flutes and gilded silverware were also seen scattered around the would-be party room.
The  most telling sign of a massive meltdown was the cake. The pastry that  had once proudly displayed the presidential seal, was violently flung against the walls in chunks. A broken topper from the cake in the  shape of the white house was discovered lodged firmly into the drywall near the dessert table.
Clinton’s splurge on party supplies was merely an echo of all the left-leaning polls and hype that “confirmed” Hillary Clinton’s indubitable win. Misled by just about every prediction, Hillary Clinton personally planned one big party for her assumed victory. Once it became clear that it would not be Clinton ‘s night, however, the mood of the party soured rapidly.
A former staffer, who was fired during the rampage, said that the atmosphere around Clinton went from “queen of the hour” to “the girl who was dumped on prom night” in only a few moments.
Hillary Clinton reportedly became “physically violent” towards her own campaign staff after she realized she had lost the presidential election, according to radio host Todd Kincannon. “CNN reporter tells me Hillary became physically violent towards Robby Mook and John Podesta around midnight; had to be briefly restrained,” tweeted Kincannon.
It was Podesta who was sent out to talk to Hillary’s dejected supporters shortly before Hillary called Donald Trump to concede, with Clinton nowhere to be seen until the following day.
When asked about rumors that Hillary was drunk on election night, Kincannon responded, “She was. I posted about that too. She was in a “psychotic drunken rage” according to my reporter friend. Doctor added sedatives to the mix.”
Kincannon then claimed that CNN blocked the reporter from publishing what would have been a bombshell story.  “The CNN reporter didn’t fail to report it. His editors will not let him. CNN  has banned all “Hillary in the bunker” stories,” he  tweeted.
Secret  Service officials and other staff who  worked closely alongside Hillary have previously reported her problems with angry tantrums on numerous occasions. Last year it was also reported that Clinton ’s own campaign staffers feared she could have a serious meltdown and that Hillary had  “been having screaming, child-like tantrums that have left staff members in tears and unable to work.” In addition to claims that she became irate, author Ed Klein said a source told him Hillary cried  inconsolably to a friend after the results came in, blaming FBI director Comey and President Barack Obama for not doing enough to stop the FBI investigation into her email scandal.

This could be a load of bunkum of course, but I thought it worthy of passing on. At least you can have a good laugh. I bet Donald Trump would laugh at this if he ever saw it.

Hilary Caught Out In Lies – Again.

Posted in America, Britain, British Humour, Canada, Elections, England, News, Obama, Politics, USA with tags , , , , on 30/09/2016 by floroy1942

A friend sent me this and it set me to wondering what the American people would think of it. Read this and see what you think:

Moderator: Good evening ladies and gentlemen. Let’s start the first questions with you Mrs. Clinton.

When you were Secretary of State why did you let a Russian company purchase 1/2 of the United States Uranium reserves?
How much money was donated by Russian companies to your Foundation?
When you worked for the State Department how did you conduct Secret Classified business without using a secure email server?
What kind of assault weapons were you funneling through Benghazi to ISIS in Syria before Ambassador Stevens was murdered?
Why were you interested in the over-throw of Assad in Syria?

When you left the White House after your husband’s last term as president, why did you steal $200,000.00 worth of furniture, China, and artwork that you were forced to return?

Mrs. Clinton, when you were Secretary of State, why did you solicit contributions from foreign governments for the Clinton foundation after you promised President Obama you would not?
Mrs. Clinton, why do you and your husband claim to contribute millions of dollars to charity for a tax write off when it goes to your family foundation, (slush fund), that gives out less than 5% of the funds
You collect and you use the balance to support yourself tax free?

Mrs. Clinton, why are you unable to account for 6 billion dollars of State department funds that seem to have disappeared while you were Secretary of State?
Mrs. Clinton, why did you say you were broke when you left the White House, but you purchased a $2 million home, built an addition for the secret service, and charged the tax payers of the United States rent in an amount equal to the entire mortgage?
And Mrs. Clinton, how is it that your daughter, Chelsea, can afford to buy a $10.5 million apartment in New York City shortly after you left the White House?

And speaking of Chelsea, how is it that her first paying job, in her late 20’s, was for more than the salary of the President of the United States? Was there a quid pro quo of any sort involved??

Mrs. Clinton why did you lie to the American people about the terrorist attack in Benghazi but managed to tell the truth to your daughter the same night it happened?

Mrs. Clinton why did you lose your law license? Why did your husband lose his?
Mrs. Clinton, what really happened to Ron Brown when he was about to testify against you and your husband?

Why did you lie to the public for over a year that you never sent classified information from your private illegal server? Why did you delete over 33.000 e-mails and then bleach your computer hard drive from that same server?

Why did you lie about being in danger and taking fire when you landed in Bosnia? 

Take your time to respond Mrs. Clinton…….

 

Ps. There are hundreds of other examples of her lies, just not enough time to list them all.

Some people will think I am taking sides in the presidential debate, but I am not. Most politicians get voted in because the public, well some of them, believe the lies they tell. This is just an example of the some of them. There are a lot more, in fact, the list is endless!

The Losers In The American Election Campaign

Posted in America, Elections, Insanity, Modern World, Obama, President, USA with tags , , , , on 21/10/2012 by floroy1942
The Contenders

The Contenders

It should be simple enough really, you hold a few rallies, rent a bit of air-time on TV and radio, and then everyone goes to the polls and votes for their favourite – Right? Wrong! Under the American presidential election system you hit the campaign trail one whole year before voting day and spend that time digging up dirt on your rival and splashing it all over the TV channels, and visiting every nook and cranny of the country to get your message across. The main point is, what does all this shenanigan cost?

Well, according to the latest information published by Politico, so far campaign donations have hit the $1 BILLION mark for both Obama and Romney. To me, as an ordinary citizen, that seems like a shameful amount of money to spend trying to get voters on your side. And I say this in light of the millions of people in the country who cannot find work, who have no proper home, and struggle to put food on the table. With so many struggling to make a living, doesn’t this seem completely ludicrous, or am I wrong?

Who Will Help Him?

Who Will Help Him?

I don’t blame the two candidates because that is the way American politics works, but in any other country it would be considered shameful. Two billion dollars would help a long way towards getting people in work and helping people to put a roof over their heads, and not only that, give medical help to the many who cannot afford to go to the doctors or the hospital.

I realize that in America this amount of money will not go far, but it seems to me that it can be put to far better use helping people than paying astronomical fees to TV stations to air some stupid campaign advertisement that is probably all hogwash anyway. Romney spent a mind-boggling $30 million on advertising in August alone!

Desperation

Desperation

It is true that this money is made up of donations, but if someone wishes to make such a donations could they not better do it to help the less fortunate? The country would be out of its financial crisis within months if the same attention was given to the country and its people instead of just the election. But unfortunately, people being what they are, and I by no means include only the American people in this, are out for all they can get for free. In my opinion, few of the really large donors like corporations are giving the campaign money because they think Obama or Romney are ‘really nice fellows’, they are looking out for their own futures and will back whoever they think will help them continue to make huge profits. In some cases I am sure they will expect a favour in return if their candidate wins.

But this all detracts from the real reason for this post. If the American election campaign was run in a more normal and acceptable way, shall we say in line with many European elections, this money could be put to far better use helping those in the country that need help the most. Its interesting to note that most charities that ask for donations to help the poor and needy could never raise this much money in a month of Sunday’s, but people are more than willing to splash it around at election time.

The Fight Is On

The Fight Is On

Over the last twenty years or so the campaigns have got steadily dirtier and more sordid, so you have to think where it will all end. Will the next election in four years be worse than this one. In light of the past you have to imagine it will, so who will be the brave president who puts a halt to the declining morality at election time? Who will be brave enough to say: “Enough is enough – Let’s concentrate on issues rather than mudslinging?” Which members of Congress and the Senate will stand up and vote to drag the American electoral system back into the real world? I think the answer to these questions is: None! So therefore American politics will continue down the same road for the foreseeable future.

What makes this doubly sad is that many countries look up to the United States, and it does without doubt hold a very important position in the world, but to me elections such as we are witnessing diminish the glow of freedom and righteousness that America has emanated for so long. Something for the American people, and the next president to think about perhaps.

The U.S. Presidential Election – Can It Get More Shameful?

Posted in America, Government, Modern World, Obama, President, USA with tags , , , , , on 11/08/2012 by floroy1942

If I were an American I would hang my head in shame at the antics of Romney and Obama who are vying for the most powerful position in the world, that of American President. To have watched from the sidelines this war of words between two heavyweight contenders for the post, is to say the least, a travesty, and an insult to intelligent men and women everywhere.

The Fight Is On.

Why the American public has put up with this comedy during elections over the past twenty years or so is totally beyond me. For almost a year the two contenders trade insults and barbs, drag up whatever dirt they can find and call each other liars just to gain the public favour in a vote that will take place in November. In my opinion, this diminishes both the persons involved, the American people and the country. If this is politics in the 21st century I want nothing of it.

Whatever happened to the times when men of power were voted in on their suitability, their politics, and their trustworthiness. All that has gone out the window, and now its a mud-slinging contest with the one to whom the least amount of mud sticks becoming the winner (I heard that somewhere before). Sorry, but that is not how it should be!

Grrrrr! – Grrrrr Yourself!

The sad fact is, that this current campaign system has become so entrenched over the past twenty years that it is unlikely to change. It will just get dirtier and more sordid. Maybe it might be better to just give them each a gun and let them fight it out cowboy style! At least the world would not be bored to tears  with a battle of words.

The entire election system in America is in desperate need a major overhaul with (a) the election campaign restricted to say no more than three months (in fact the shorter the better), and (b) no more mud-slinging. Aspiring Presidents should be made to stick to laying out their credentials for the post, their policies, and what they think they can do for the country and its people. The re-election of Presidents should also be weighed on the their past record in office.

Another thing I hate about the current system is this drumming up of campaign contributions from the rich and powerful, because there is often a payback. From my point of view it seems more like a way of gaining influence. In this world you get nothing for nothing, and you can bet your last dollar that all these rich and powerful business people want a favour in return for the millions they contribute. It’s the old ‘You scrub my back and I’ll scrub yours’ syndrome. In an election for the post of most powerful person on the planet it stinks to high heaven!

You Scrub My Back…..

I may be an outsider  when it comes to America and its politics, but what I see daily on the news does not inspire one little bit of confidence in me for the future. I know for sure that if I were an American citizen, I would start campaigning for a change in the system and do my utmost to start cleaning up Capitol Hill and the White House. I would consider it my duty as an American citizen!

Has Obama Opened the ‘Gay’ Rights Floodgate?

Posted in America, Elections, Equality, Gays, Homosexuals, Obama, President, Sharia Law, USA with tags , , , , on 20/05/2012 by floroy1942

When President Obama endorsed ‘gay’ marriage a couple of weeks ago, he may have unwittingly opened the door to a whole series of future law changes. It would seem that having gained this major victory, ‘gay’ rights activists are already racking up a list of new demands.

They are already eying the idea of repealing the Defense of Marriage Act, (DOMA) extending Social Security benefits for gay partners, and changing the regulations governing the deportation of immigrants in same-sex marriages. So you see, the story is far from over.

Mitt Romney Is Against It

There can be little doubt that Obama’s move has created a wave of fresh votes in his bid to be re-elected, but he may be getting himself into more hot water once he has beaten his rival Mitt Romney. His opponent has already stated quite clearly on numerous occasions that he will not go down that road and naturally enough, the ‘gay’ community will vote for anyone who they see will help them achieve their aims, which is full parity with normal people in all aspects of life. They have made it clear the fight will not end until this is achieved by any means possible.

It would appear that Obama’s  stand on ‘gay’ marriage has not as yet obtained full endorsement by the Democratic Party as a whole, because the issue is yet to be added to the Party Convention platform.

American States Approving Gay Marriage

The move is sure to lose Obama votes in States like North Carolina where ‘gay’ marriage has been banned. Meanwhile more States, such as Washington, Maryland and Maine are due to hold votes on the subject in the near future.

Repealing the DOMA, which puts into law that a marriage consists of the union between a man and a woman, would be a major step for ‘gay’ activists as would extending Social Benefits to partners in ‘gay’ marriages. Changes to the law governing the deportation of immigrants in same sex marriages is also sought, which means that any illegal immigrant ‘married’ to a homosexual or lesbian could no longer be deported as an undesirable, thereby having the same rights as someone in a normal marriage.

Gays In The Military

Another card the ‘gays’ wish to play is  the Employment Non-Discrimination Act which bans sexual discrimination in the hiring and firing of ‘gay’ people in the federal workplace. This is due for discussion by the Senate in June, but activists say Obama should sign it into law immediately by an Executive Order. Last month, the White House told advocates Obama would not sign the order but opted instead to pursue a multi-pronged effort to induce companies and contractors to prioritize anti-discrimination on their own.

With the changes he has made in removing  the ‘don’t ask; don’t tell’ policy in the military, Obama has already made some inroads into removing discrimination against ‘gays’ and has shown he is willing, up to a point. But certainly, the ‘gay’ issue is a thorny one and will not go away. Considering that he has raised the issue in his campaign, it is certain the ‘gay’ activists will see this as a golden opportunity to push even harder to get parity in all things with normal couples.

Sharia Solution?

This could well turn out to be a millstone around Obama’s neck if he is re-elected, for his current stance will not silence the ‘gay’ community, only cause them to shout louder. You know the old saying; “give them an inch and they’ll take a yard”. The only thing that will effectively silence these ‘people’ is Sharia Law, but considering the downside, maybe its not worth it!

Tired Of Dirty Politics?

Posted in America, Britain, Elections, Obama, President, UK, USA with tags , , , on 04/05/2012 by floroy1942

Don’t you find election campaigns rather nasty, sordid affairs that do little to help you, the voter, choose the right candidate for the job? Both the American and French presidential elections are in full swing and isn’t it getting downright dirty!

These days it would seem the person who finally gets elected is the one to whom the least amount of mud sticks.

I Am Really One of You

Naturally a lot of PR tricks are used by a candidate, like removing the jacket and tie and rolling up the shirtsleeves to bring himself down to what he perceives as the level of the ‘common man’ – “I’m not really a multi-millionaire, at heart I’m one of you”!

Giving The Right Impression?

Quite often the politics of the person concerned, and even the decisions they will make in office, are of little significance in the run-up to an election. Once an election campaign gets rolling it does not take long for the mud-slinging to start by one party or the other. American elections have been prime examples of this for at least twenty years and it has not taken their European counterparts long to learn the tricks.

Me! The Next President? Mon Dieu!

Currently leading the action in Europe is the accusation by backers of Socialist Francois Hollande against President Sarkozy that his last campaign was partly funded by Muhamar Gaddafi, ex-president of Libya. The Sarkozy camp are calling this a lie and it is reported that the president will take those responsible to court. During their televised debate both candidates spent much of the time calling each other liars.

It is not really important any more what policies the various candidates have and what they will and will not do for the country. Elections have become a battle of secrets and lies about the other candidate, and whatever skeletons can be found in the other’s cupboard. The one with the fewest wins, its as simple as that! Wouldn’t it be nice to return to the days when a candidate’s policies were important?

But there again, campaigns now are all about telling the voter what they want to hear. Currently, “I am going to get everyone back to work” is the favourite line. Politicians are masters at telling everyone that they will solve this or that crisis, but will never tell you how! During the last election in Britain Labour’s Milliband was shouting his head off that they were the party to solve Britain’s debt problems, but when asked what measures they would  take to solve the problems, the only answer was pure bluster and a blank stare.

Your Vote Counts?

Its not just one politician, they are all as bad as one another, and we poor dumb voters are expected to swallow the campaign lies hook, line and sinker. It does not matter if the candidate is Republican, Democrat, Socialist, Liberal, Labour or Conservative, they all spout the same message, telling us what they will do when elected. Sadly, in most cases these promises are quietly forgotten after the results are in.

In an American election campaign money too has to raise its ugly head, for the winner is often determined by who has the big bucks. It’s true that an election campaign can be very expensive, and he who has the most to spend on billboard and TV advertising, and naturally on investigating the opposition, will often come out ahead. Not to forget the ‘quid pro quo’ of politics, if I put ‘X’ million dollars into your war chest what will you do for me or my company after you are elected?

The Lincoln View?

It seems to me that in most elections these days we are often dealing with a load of self-centred, self-important egomaniacs who don’t give a rat’s ass about the voters, the economy, the nations health, and even the country, just so long as they get elected. They want the top job at any price, and don’t care what they have to say and do to get it! As we all know, in countries where they can get away with it, like Russia, Azerbaijan, Burma and many others, the votes are rigged and a complete farce. Personally, I find it sad that we have finally sunk so low.

Could Be!

I have no wish to get involved with American politics because I don’t know enough about it, but I have to say that this Romney character seems to me to be a somewhat slimy type, and as I watch him on the TV news I get the impression he does not fully have the best interests of the American people at heart, only his own. He seems to me like a mega-rich man ($250M)whose only unconquered mountain is the presidency of the USA, and he will do anything to get this last crowning achievement. He certainly does not seem driven by a will to help the people and the country to recover from the present crisis, especially as it seems he hardly pays any taxes on his amassed wealth! Not what I would call admirable qualities for a president.

Obama on the other hand has not delivered on his last campaign promises like closing Guantanamo, but to be fair he has been fighting an extremely hostile Republican Congress during his term of office, so he is really running with his shoelaces tied together. But all that aside, I would trust Obama before I did Romney, but that’s only my uninformed opinion.

You Know What They Are Thinking

So far as the other two, Hollande and Sarkozy are concerned, I really don’t know. Hollande to me is an enigma, but I can only say that the little I saw of the debate on the news, Sarkozy seemed to score the most points. Either way its the French people who must decide.

In the up and coming elections in both France and the USA we have become used to the fact that the best man for the job may not win, because the result will depend purely on how much mud one party can dig up on the other, and how much of it sticks on the day. Not what I would call a recipe for success. However you look at it, politics today is a dirty, murky business that only those driven by an all-consuming ambition will become involved in. The idea of doing something for your country and its people is, to put it bluntly, out of date!

Roy.
