Hillary Clinton Isn't Going Anywhere!

What a weekend it was! Millions on the march on Saturday were largely ignored by Sunday morning TV as the government remained in shut-down mode. The GOP, which espouses family values and a strong military, stubbornly resisted Claire McCaskill's efforts to continue military pay and suspend Congressional pay for the duration. Linda Sarsour, a Women's March organizer, insisted the marches would have occurred even if Hillary Clinton had been elected.  Hillary supporters, of course, would never have turned out.
It was another weekend in the rabbit hole that is Trump's America.


Amy Chozick's editorial in last week's New York Times suggested that Hillary was fading from the political scene.  Refreshingly, Gail Collins does not see things that way at all.

Question: Do you think Donald Trump spends more time thinking about Hillary Clinton than Hillary Clinton spends thinking about Donald Trump?
Sure does seem like it. The other day, Trump was discussing Russia at a news conference with the prime minister of Norway, when he suddenly announced that Clinton “was not for a strong military and Hillary, my opponent, was for windmills, and she was for other types of energy that don’t have the same capacities at this moment certainly.”
Yeah, it didn’t make any sense. But he really can’t seem to get past her. Recently while promoting tax cuts and a congressional candidate in Pennsylvania, Trump veered off to remind the crowd that during the campaign, Clinton had once called his supporters “deplorables.”
“Who would have thought that was going to turn into a landslide?” asked the president, alluding to a contest in which he lost the popular vote by 2.9 million.

Many of the women who marched Saturday said specifically that they marched because of Hillary.



Hillary Clinton is not going anywhere. The events page at the website for her book continues to forecast additional events in 2018.  Moreover, Donald Trump seems unable to let her go.

Scenes from a Movement: Women's March 2018

Here are some scenes from Saturday's events across the country.




















And Trump did what he typically does - what dictators do. He tried to transform the story into something pro-him.


You are not the hero of this movement, you liar! SHE is.




THEY are!



Here is what SHE said!


Forward ... March! Onward!

Jessica Morse has served on the front lines in Iraq. She’s hiked 500 miles of the Pacific Crest Trail by herself. But until a year ago, she never felt brave enough to run for office—to put her own name on a ballot and give herself over to public scrutiny.
“After the 2016 election, I felt like I’d seen what happens when women run for office,” Morse told Newsweek. “I thought, How could I run in this environment? How can I serve my community if my good record and merit don’t mean anything?”
Morse and millions of other women had just watched Hillary Clinton, one of the most qualified candidates to run for president, lose to Donald Trump, a reality-TV star and businessman whose campaign survived his boasting about grabbing women’s genitals and more than a dozen sexual assault allegations. The day of his election was a day of mourning for many women. But the day after was a day of action, with the Women’s March rallying 4.2 million protesters across the country, making it the largest single-day demonstration in modern U.S. history.

women's march 2018
Last year, more than 4 million people across the globe marched in protest on January 21 for the inaugural Women’s March (which was not-coincidentally held the day after Donald Trump’s inauguration). Since then, there’s been a Women’s Strike, an onslaught of sexual-harassment allegations against powerful men, the rebirth of the #MeToo movement, and — unfortunately but not surprisingly — continued widespread discrimination against women and minorities.
There is still so much to fight for, and activists are hoping you’ll channel your rage into the second annual Women’s March weekend, coming up later this month. Here’s everything you need to know about the events.
This year, there are more than 200 Women’s March events planned around the world for Saturday, January 20, as well as a few additional events on Sunday, January 21.

Sidenote: We are rolling into 2018. No matter what happens in November, this remains an issue for the 2020 primaries.

The commission formed by Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders to review the Democratic nominating process is presenting its final report to the party's rules committee this weekend. But party officials are still working to resolve their differences over key changes such as caucus rules and superdelegates.
As officials gather Friday and Saturday in Washington for a meeting of the party's Rules and Bylaws Committee, one Clinton adviser is circulating a petition asking Democrats to reconsider a proposal aimed at favoring primaries over caucuses.
The Democratic operative and Clinton staffer, Adam Parkhomenko, released the petition on Friday, pointing members to a proposal that would require states with both caucuses and state-run primaries to use the results of the primary, not the caucus, to decide the number of delegates allocated to each candidate.

For the Record ...

It's Time for Chris Matthews to GO!

When will time be up for Chris Matthews?  How does he keep his head when so many others have rolled? MSNBC cut Tamron Hall and Joan Walsh loose, but keep him. What could possibly be the justification in light of this?

On January 5, 2016, MSNBC Hardball host Chris Matthews interviewed Hillary Clinton in an Iowa fire station during the Democratic primary season. Network footage obtained by the Cut shows Matthews, during the interview setup, making a couple of “jokes” about Clinton. He asks, “Can I have some of the queen’s waters? Precious waters?” And then, as he waits for the water, he adds, “Where’s that Bill Cosby pill I brought with me?” Matthews then laughs, delighted with the line, for an extended moment, as the staffers around him react with disbelief, clearly uncomfortable. (Cosby has been accused of sexual impropriety by dozens of women, some of whom allege that they were drugged and raped by the comedian.)

When will his outrageous behavior and comments warrant retribution in the eyes of the big wigs over there?

Hillary Clinton Responds to Trump's View of Haitians

When a powerful man makes a remark as crass as the one Donald Trump made yesterday, two reactions are possible. 1. Sputtering speechlessness - a loss for words. 2. Reversion to kind - only a sh*t-for-brains would make a remark like that.

So profound was the shock at what he said, that most of us forgot that the comment came on the eighth anniversary of the earthquake that devastated Haiti.

Hillary Clinton did not forget.

Catching Up With Hillary Clinton

No, she isn't slacking. I am the one who needed additional mental health time moving into the new year - which promises to be a bitch!

To start, no. We are not going to entertain the perpetual investigations into the Clinton Foundation which saves lives and eyesight, aids farmers - including and especially women farmers, provides access to safe food cookers, fights animal trafficking and poaching, and provides HIV-AIDS medication. Been there. Saw that. Nothing new to discover there.

Neither is there anything worth discussing about any private servers or emails. The fire at the Secret Service facility on the Clinton property did not erupt in a roomful of secret servers. It was a shorted bathroom fan that set off the alarm.

Hillary, meanwhile, is still fighting for Congress to pass CHIP, and you can join her in the battle here >>>>.

She also sent this email out.


Thank you again for your generous donation to Onward Together in 2017. With your help, we were able to support eleven groups doing critical work toward making our country stronger and more fair.
You’ve already been introduced to the first round of organizations. Today, I wanted to tell you a little bit about some of the newer members of the Onward Together family:
The organizers at iVote worked with partners on the ground to get automatic voter registration on the ballot in Nevada in 2017. 450 brand-new civic leaders and activists attended The Arena’s very first summit -- and they're on track to train 5,000 people by the end of 2018. At the Alliance for Youth Action, young people are using local organizing to address economic inequality, attacks on voting rights, and more. The team at Latino Victory Fund is working to elect more Latino candidates at every level of government. More than 400 students and leaders met last month at the Voto Latino Power Summit to share resources and tools for national advocacy. And with the help of Collective Future, 23 African-American candidates have been elected to local, state, and federal offices since August 2016.,
Along with Indivisible, Color of Change, Emerge America, Swing Left, and Run for Something, I know these groups will continue to do the incredible work of making our democracy stronger in 2018, and I'm proud to be on their team. We’re only able to support these organizations because of you, so one more time, thank you.
If you're still with us in 2018, add your name right now, and let's do even more together.
Onward,
Hillary
So no. In 2018, you will not find unnecessary refutation of lies about Hillary, the Clintons, or the foundation. You will continue to see posts about Hillary's work, words, and events. That is what this blog has always been about and we foresee no reason to leap into a cesspool just because the current administration and his party have tried to flush used Pampers down the White House lavatories.

Small Fire on Clinton Property - All is Well

You might have heard that there was a fire today at the Clinton compound in Chappaqua. It was in a Secret Service facility and was quickly contained. No one was injured, and the Clintons were not home at the time.
