[WAPO] “WITH THE presidential campaign entering its final days, you have likely heard the latest theory gaining currency among political pundits: If the election is about Hillary Clinton, and not Donald Trump, she is sure to lose.

 

We have written a lot in recent months about why Mr. Trump is manifestly unqualified — by experience, temperament and outlook — for the Oval Office. We agree that attention paid to his unfitness is to Ms. Clinton’s benefit. But we also believe that fair examination of Ms. Clinton in her own right provides convincing evidence that she is well prepared and fully capable to succeed as president of the United States.

 

 

When we endorsed Ms. Clinton, we stressed we were not choosing between the lesser of two evils. “Hillary Clinton,” we wrote, “has the potential to be an excellent president. . . . Anyone who votes for her will be able to look back, four years from now, with pride in that decision.” Not only has Ms. Clinton sketched out a thoughtful and ambitious policy agenda but she has run an impressive campaign, including her choice of running mate and her nimble mastery of three debates.

 

We are not alone in our recommendation. Most newspapers — including conservative newspapers that never before supported a Democrat for president — have endorsed Ms. Clinton, as have publications that broke decades-long traditions of not choosing sides. She has been backed by an impressive number of officials, former officials and experts from both sides of the aisle, including cabinet secretaries, retired military and Nobel Prize winners. Tellingly, people who worked most closely with her are most enthusiastic. “Prepared, detail-oriented, thoughtful, inquisitive and willing to change her mind if presented with a compelling argument,” was the testimonial offered by Michael J. Morell, 33-year veteran of the Central Intelligence Agency, who has served presidents of both parties and never publicly backed a presidential candidate before. “I never saw her bring politics into the Situation Room.”

 

These capabilities — President Obama has said there has never been anyone more qualified than Ms. Clinton to serve as president — must not be obscured in the sideshow whipped up by her opponents and unfortunately enabled by FBI Director James B. Comey’s ill-advised letter to Congress last month. There is no question that Ms. Clinton has flaws and has made mistakes in her 30 years in public life, but the caricature painted by her opponents is more slander than reality. Yes, she was wrong to use a private email server as secretary of state, but that does not constitute treason. Nor, as Mr. Comey’s Sunday letter makes clear, did it involve criminal behavior. Yes, she and her husband should have taken more care in avoiding even the appearance of conflicts with the Clinton Foundation, but that again doesn’t mean that crimes were committed or that the foundation doesn’t do worthy work.

 

It is hard to imagine that any other politician subjected to decades of unrelenting conspiracy-mongering, unprecedented scrutiny and outright misogyny would fare as well as she has. Some of the emails from her staff stolen by Russia and released show thoughtless comments and embarrassing political calculations by her staff, but many others reveal a woman with discipline and resilience who thinks thoughtfully about the important issues of the day and pushes for pragmatic solutions. Those are the qualities we hope will result in her being elected president on Nov. 8.”

Stop Pretending You Don’t Know Why People Hate Hillary Clinton! [Bad News For The Haters]

Posted in 2016 Presidency, 2016 Presidential Election, 2016 Presidential Race, 2016 White House, Democrats, Michelle Obama, President Obama, Secretary of State, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, Thank you Hillary, United States, Women, Women's Rights with tags , , , , on November 4, 2016 by sheriffali

[Huff-Post]“Why Is Clinton disliked?

 

Why the hate for Hillary?

 

Why do people hate Hillary Clinton so much?

 

Is it because of partisanship?

 

Or a hard-fought primary?

 

Maybe, NBC once suggested, it’s because “she’s not a train wreck.”

 

Funny how the answers seem to be everything but the obvious.

 

We go on endlessly about how “untrustworthy” she is, while fact checkers rank her as the second-most honest prominent politician in the country. (And her opponent as by far the least.)

We say that she has trouble with transparency, while her opponent refuses to release his taxes and the current administration sets records for secrecy.

 

We decry her ties to corporations and the financial industry, while supporting a walking tax shelter or mourning the exit of a president whose re-election was funded by a record-shattering Wall Street haul.

 

We list so very many explanations, all of them complete bullshit.

 

In truth, the Hillary haters seem to resent her more than disagree with her. They demand to be humored and catered to. They hold her to wildly different standards than her male counterparts. They regard her with an unprecedented degree of suspicion. Above all, they really, really want to see her punished. And an aggressive male presence—even if dangerously incompetent—seems to comfort a great many of them.

 

Everyone but them knows damn well why.

 

Bad news for the haters: History is decidedly unafraid of “the woman card.” It doesn’t care how many people will stand on tables today and swear they’d feel the same if she were a man. It will see us for what we are—a sick society, driven by misogyny and pathetically struggling to come to terms with the fact that women do not exist solely to nurture.

 

If that answer isn’t as nuanced as the average thinkpiece, that’s because we, as a people, are not. No matter how many branches have formed, they all emerged from the same seed, planted way back when Bill Clinton first ran for governor. She wouldn’t be so suspicious of the press, or so measured in her presentation, or so any one of a thousand other things, if she had been born a man.

 

The lengths we go to in order to rationalize this all will be seen, in retrospect, as extraordinary.

 

When the Bush administration was discovered to have erased millions of emails illegally sent by 22 administration officials through private, RNC-owned accounts, in order to thwart an investigation into the politically motivated firing of eight US attorneys, just one talk show covered it that Sunday.

 

When Mitt Romney wiped servers, sold government hard drives to his closest aides and spent $100,000 in taxpayer money to destroy his administration’s emails, it was barely an issue.

 

When Hillary Clinton asked Colin Powell how he managed to use a Blackberry while serving as Secretary of State, he replied by detailing his method of intentionally bypassing federal record-keeping laws:”

[NYT] “WASHINGTON — President Obama sharply criticized the decision by his F.B.I.  Director to alert Congress on Friday about the discovery of new emails related to the Hillary Clinton server case, implying that it violated investigative guidelines and trafficked in innuendo.

 

“We don’t operate on incomplete information,” Mr. Obama said in an interview with NowThis News, broadcast Wednesday. “We don’t operate on leaks. We operate based on concrete decisions that are made.”

 

“When this was investigated thoroughly the last time, the conclusion of the F.B.I., the conclusion of the Justice Department, the conclusion of repeated congressional investigations was that she had made some mistakes but that there wasn’t anything there that was prosecutable,” Mr. Obama said.”

 

Support And Vote Hillary Clinton For President And Elect A Democratic Controlled Congress.

 

“No Complacency Please, You Must Go Out And Vote.

 

”Hillary Clinton Is Going To Win The Presidency, But The Margin With Which She Wins And A Democratic Controlled Congress Will Enable President Hillary Clinton To Implement Polices And Confirm Experienced Cabinet Members To Keep America Moving Forward.”

 

Hillary Clinton will continue President Obama’s Legacy and Policies and build on Obama’s Achievements.

President Obama Calls On Men To Reflect On Sexism Before Voting And Hillary Clinton Tells Boys To Show Respect To Girls And Women!

President Barack Obama on Tuesday called on men to “look inside” themselves and think about bias if they have any doubt about voting for Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton.

 

“To the guys out there, I want to be honest,” Obama told a crowd in Columbus, Ohio, at a Clinton campaign event. “You know, there’s a reason we haven’t had a woman president before.”

 

He asked male voters to think about their potential biases against Clinton, who would be the first female president in U.S. history.

 

“I want every man out there who’s voting to kinda look inside yourself and ask yourself, if you’re having problems with this stuff, how much of it is that we’re just not used to it?” he said. “When a guy is ambitious and out in the public arena and working hard, well that’s okay. But when a woman suddenly does it, suddenly you’re all like, well, why’s she doing that?”

 

Obama went on to praise Clinton. “She is so much better qualified than the other guy,” he said, referring to GOP nominee Donald Trump. “She has conducted herself so much better in public life than the other guy.”

 

Obama blasted Trump for his disrespectful treatment of women and said the behavior would continue should he be elected president.

 

“The only thing this office does is it amplifies who you are. It magnifies who you are,” he said. “If you disrespected women before you were elected, you will disrespect women once you’re president.”

Republicans are fully cognizant that Donald Trump is not going to win the Presidency but rather than put forth positive Polices for the Country, Republicans are on the same path as they have been with President Obama, “Obstruct In Every Way Possible Even If It Hurts America And The American People.”

 

Ask yourself, “What Have Republicans Done In The Past 15 Years For America Or The American People? If you claim that they have done many things, you are willfully lying or you are uninformed, ignorant, uneducated and suffering from a bad case of the “Stockholm Syndrome.”

 

Go out and vote as if your life depends on it because in reality, it does!

 

Hillary Clinton is no quitter, she is highly educated, enormously qualified and most experienced but she cannot do all that needs to be done all by herself. Hillary’s Campaign Logo “Stronger Together” is most appropriate and if you believe in Hillary Clinton then do everything you possibly can to “keep watch of her back,” for it is an open target for the Republican Wayfarers that have lost their way since the inception of 2001 to this very day.

 

Please, Please, give Hillary Clinton your full Support and Vote so that she wins in a Major Landslide” and that she is blessed with a Democratic Controlled Congress and other Down Ballots.

 

Hillary Clinton is counting on you, please don’t let her down, we have come too far under President Obama to turn back now. Keep America moving forward. Republicans only knows the “Reverse Gear.”

When I see the elaborate study and ingenuity displayed by Hillary Clinton in the pursuit of achieving goals for Children, Women, Men and Equal Justice For All Under The Law, I feel no doubt of Hillary’s herculean undertakings as President Of The United States.

It is remarkable how the Media, Republicans, some Independents and some Democrats have constantly and consistently “labeled” Hillary Clinton as “untrustworthy.”

 

 

Hillary Clinton’s problem is not “transparency” it is “Misogyny!” America, for all of the braggadocio we indulge in about “Human Rights and Equal Rights and Equal Rights for Women,” we are hypocrites, hypocrites because despite being one of the most stable Democracies in the world, our words fall short. It is not our words that ring of hypocrisy, “it is our DEEDS.”

 

 

We are on the verge of Electing the First Woman to be President and yet, despite Hillary Clinton being enormously educated, very qualified and the most experienced person to ever seek the Presidency, the Media, Republicans, some Independents and yes, some Democrats just cannot usurp the bias they have against women being at the top of the Ladder.

 

 

As President Obama said during the Democratic Convention, “not him, not Bill nor any other person is more qualified to be President than Hillary Clinton.”

 

 

 

Hillary Clinton is a Yale Graduate Attorney and was named 3 years in a Row as one of America’s top 100 Lawyers by the American Bar association; Hillary was First Lady of Arkansas; First Lady of The United States; two term US Senator and Secretary of State and yet, Americans compare her to her “Opponent” who has never done anything for anyone, but conned Investors, robbed Employees and Contractors, created a fraudulent University and literally embezzled money from the young, middle-age, Veteran and yes, Seniors, for which he is facing a Fraud Trial under the RICO-ACT on November 28, 2016 and a Rape Case of a minor in December 2016.

 

 

People are wrong when they lay claim that Hillary Clinton is the Lesser of Two Evils, no she is not! Hillary Clinton has spent her entire adult life fighting for Children’s, Women, Men and Equal Rights for all, that is a service that should be praised, but instead, it is denigrated by almost every American News Agency – Television, Radio and Print.

 

 

Please no complacency! Support and Vote Hillary Clinton for President and give Hillary a Democratic Controlled Congress by getting rid of the “Do Nothing Republican Congress.”

Don’t Forget: Hillary Clinton Is Blazing A Momentous Trail!

[WAPO – Eugene Robinson] “Not enough has been made of two obvious facts: Hillary Clinton, if she wins, will be the first woman elected to the White House. And it will have been the votes of women who put her there.

 

Think, for a moment, about what a remarkable milestone that would be. Consider what it would say about the long and difficult struggle to make the Constitution’s guarantees of freedom and equality encompass all Americans. The first 43 presidents were all members of a privileged minority group — white males. The 44th is a black man, and the 45th may well be a white woman. That is a very big deal.

 

The historic nature of Clinton’s candidacy has been all but lost amid the clamorous sound and fury of the Donald Trump eruption. The campaign has seen many unforgettable moments, but one that I believe will prove truly indelible came during the third and final debate, when Clinton was speaking and Trump interrupted her by snarling, “Such a nasty woman.”

 

Within minutes, “nasty woman” became an Internet meme — not so much because of what it said about Trump, since we already knew of his sexism and misogyny, but because of what it said about the moment. A “nasty woman” was on the verge of shattering the highest and most shatterproof glass ceiling of them all. That this accomplishment would come at Trump’s expense just made it a bit sweeter.

 

Polls show Clinton leading Trump among women by double-digit margins — an incredible 17 percentage points in a recent Fox News poll. If only men could vote, Trump would have a lead, albeit a shrinking one. But thanks to the 19th Amendment, Clinton is well ahead nationally and has taken solid leads in almost all the swing states.

 

 

Surely this has something to do with the “Access Hollywood” videotape in which Trump brags of groping and kissing women against their will — and the 11 women who have come forward to accuse him of doing just that. But I like to believe it also has much to do with Clinton and the virtues she has demonstrated during the campaign.”

 

 

We made History in 2008 Electing the First African American President that turned out to be “beyond” fantastic!

 

Let us make History again by Electing the First Woman President that is beyond “qualified” “experienced” and “intellectually temperamental” fit to serve on “Day One.”

 

 

This two Historic Moments would never happen in the Republican Party, at least for the foreseeable future. Let us hope for the good of America the GOP for once in the past 30 years do what is right for America.

[WAPO] “GETTYSBURG, Pa. — Donald Trump traveled Saturday to the site of the most bloody battle of the Civil War, where he suggested that the United States is nearly as divided now as it was then. But instead of laying out his vision for uniting the country, as President Abraham Lincoln once did in this historic place, Trump declared that the system is rigged against him, that election results cannot be trusted, that Hillary Clinton should have been barred from running for president, that the media is “corrupt” and that he will sue all of the women who have accused him of sexual assault.

 

“It is my privilege to be here in Gettysburg, hallowed ground where so many lives were given in service to freedom — amazing place,” Trump said, soon after taking the stage more than an hour later than expected in a ballroom at the Eisenhower Hotel and Conference Center. “President Lincoln served in a time of division like we’ve never seen before. It is my hope that we can look at his example to heal the divisions we are living through right now. We are a very divided nation.”

 

Trump told the crowd of about 500 locals who are active in the Republican Party that he didn’t have to run for president, but he did so because the country is in trouble, and he can fix things because he’s an outsider who knows how the “very broken system” works. He described himself as being able to deliver “the kind of change that only arrives once in a lifetime.”

The Irony is mind-boggling! For Decades Republicans have been crying foul over fabricated Voter Fraud and now that their Nominee, Con Man Trump has stuck it in their Faces, somehow, they can’t seem to run away fast enough from this Low-Life-Disgusting-Man – Donald Trump. [A Bipartisan Study Of One Billion Votes Showed 31 Cases Of Voter Fraud – FACT]

[Los Angeles Times] “Donald Trump is the most ableist presidential nominee in modern American political history.

 

Trying to stay on top of Trump’s outrages is exhausting. The 2005 tape of him linking his fame to consequence-free sexual assault overshadowed his racist comments about the guilt of the Central Park 5. At the debate, he threatened to jail Hillary Clinton, so we had to talk about his fascistic tendencies — before returning to his abhorrent behavior toward women. Now that he released an ad mocking he’s Clinton for her alleged physical ailments, it’s time to talk about his ableism.

 

Ableism, the individual or systematic discrimination against and stigmatization of people with disabilities or people perceived to have disabilities, is still an unfamiliar concept to many Americans — some of whom aren’t even willing to admit that racism or sexism are real. Ableists convey the message that disabled people are not full members of our society, leading to exclusion and even abuse. Trump is fully complicit in sending precisely that message.

 

Trump is using invented illnesses to try and portray Clinton as not fit to lead.

 

Here are just a few examples. Trump has fixated on Clinton’s health for months now, but it’s gotten worse. At a recent rally, he pretended to wobble and then faint in front of a laughing crowd. He routinely questions her stamina (a thinly veiled code for health) and he and his surrogates promote conspiracy theories that Clinton has conditions including strokes, Parkinson’s and epilepsy. While it’s not necessarily ableist to want to know about a candidate’s health, Trump is using invented illnesses to try and portray Clinton as not fit to lead.

 

Fat-shaming is another kind of ableism, and Trump especially likes to mock women he deems overweight, such as Alicia Machado (the former Miss Universe) and Rosie O’Donnell. He has also made fun of New Jersey Governor Chris Christie’s weight. 

 

Bizarrely, Trump’s supporters have lately been using the candidate’s routine ableism as a defense against accusations that he mocked a disabled New York Times reporter last November. Supporters are arguing that Trump wasn’t specifically insulting the reporter, but that he routinely uses spastic arm motions — what Ann Coulter calls “standard retard” — to make fun of people.”

 

Save America By Supporting And Voting Hillary Clinton For President and Vote To Elect A Democratic Controlled House And Senate Congress.
