I'm on a roll


jimmyk found the misreading of 1984 and ace had a treasure with the "absolution" quote ... good grief.


[Reposting only because it's now on topic]

First degree category error:

HillaryClinton thinks the lesson of Orwell's 1984 is that you should trust experts, leaders and the press

Comment by Laslo: The book "What Happened" will be followed by the book "What I Meant To Say".


Thanks for the concern but all is well in the RG household and with family members all over the state. Like the state, we were incredibly lucky on many fronts.

Way behind and trying to catch up with so many TM Posts and threads I feel like Lucy and Ethel in the chocolate Shop:

Yay-yuh !!!


Sorry MM but; McMaster is a disaster.

No hell he isn't. Iggy, to me there's a weird battle of "operators" going on via Twitter, etc. I'm not sure I trust the play being made by folks who are obviously utilizing the writer of the article you cited, David Steinberg, in PajamasMedia. This is an article (September 6, 2017) that is something of a tell to me, revolving around Mike Cernovich:


Caroline Glick >> David Weinberg >> Mike Cernovich ???

Well, YMMV, but I'm much more confident with General McMaster. I have been *very* suspicious of Cernovich ever since he was granted that interview on 60 Minutes. I rather believe General Kelly and General McMaster are part of that methodical, python-like effort to squeeze out the players with influence that generate the leaks within every administration. The desperate squeaking about McMaster says to me the effort is being successful and may (may!) be in its final stages.

It would be a huge, huge victory for the Trump Administration if they could get this under control before Summer 2018. I would like to think the overly-impatient Lurker's Ledge inhabitant, CH, would factor this in a bit more prominently but I see he's still on the Elmer Fudd kick (((sigh))).

IMHO everyone dissatisfied with Sessions or Trump or McMaster *seriously* underestimates the adversary being confronted . . . and that is never a good thing.

Captain Hate

She keeps referring to all these horrible people who wouldn't let her "be herself" during the campaign. Like that wasn't really her hectoring television viewers "why aren't I fifty points ahead, you might ask" like the mother in law from Hell?

Someone might want to check on that skeezer Jennifer Palmieri because I have a feeling she's been chugging dago red continually since the book quotes started stumbling out.


glad to see you back posting and that all is well RattlerGator.


didn't she deploy "deplorables" multiple times? iirc Janet has all the mentions in her stack of stuff.

Jim Eagle


Bravo Zulu. With you on McMaster & Kelly. You don't become general officers in the Army and Corps by undermining your boss but rather by proving you are capable, loyal and ready for the next promotion and next command.

How 'bout those Jags, so far?


Tom Maguire -- your 'word play' re The Omen this morning is delightful. :) Thank you.


Also, as far as the 'leaks', I've been interested in how circa's scoops have disappeared in the last few weeks.

:) ???


As said long before, Hillary is Americas's Mother in Law.

Now she is becoming Americas' Ex-Mother in Law. In spades.

It is all good.


If you want to indulge your "Deep State" fears, take a look at the feature on NetFlix called "Unacknowledged".
It's about the "Deep State" and UFOs.


Rodham has been a LEECH her entire life. She was a blood sucking VAMPIRE at Rose Law, vis a vis Whitewater, and a lying cheating lout with regard to her CATTLE FUTURES kick back. She has NEVER accomplished ANYTHING of note. She was kicked off of the Watergate legal team for being "unethical". She lied about RAPIST BILL'S affairs, although she knew the truth.
WhiteHouse travel office.....DISCUSS.
Vast Right Wing conspiracy.
Carpet munching to NY.
Telling her Secret Service detail people to "fuck off".
But nothing illustrates Rodhams' Psychopathy, like BENGHAZI, and the MULTITUDE of LIES that followed. OBAMA INCLUDED.

Rodham is filth. This is not about politicis, it's about RODHAM having ABSOLUTELY ZERO MORAL FIBER.

There is a certain ostrich-with-its-head-in-the-sand feeling to ignoring that over and over McMaster and others have undeniably purged the most vocal Trump supporters up to and including Bannon who has stated fairly clearly that Trump has relied too much on the Establishment to populate his admin to the point the trump revolution is over.
Now, Trump has stood firm here and there but, as in Afghanistan, he has not at times as well.
I hope the purges have been over matters other than draining the Swamp and I hope Trump remains steadfast and I hope that those surrounding him faithfully follow his agenda, but hope is a poor substitute for observation. To pretend there is no cause for concern and the dozens of people let go do not indicate a possible counteroffensive by the Swamp and the possibility these portend a purposely hobbled Trump doesn't seem too wise to me.
Nor am I willing to discount the possibility Trump doesn't mind just so long as gets a deal, even if it's one the Swamp loves more than his supporters. I tend to doubt that aspect just from his steadfastness so far, but DC has a way of grinding even the most steadfast smooth.
We shall see, but to pretend there is no smoke in the air indicating a possible fire somewhere doesn't seem to comport with either observations or the nature of the Swamp.

We may not be at the 'who you gonna believe, me or your lyin eyes' point yet but it's on the horizon.

Hillary is about as delightful as sour owl shit.


My ballot in Wisconsin, is filled out by hand, with a marker on a plastic desk.

Hack that!


Update on the death of Joseph Rago:


As it's likely behind the pay wall:

Julie Bolcer, the spokeswoman for the city’s Office of Chief Medical Examiner, said Mr. Rago suffered from the inflammatory disease sarcoidosis, which affected his lungs, heart, spleen, hilar and mediastinal lymph nodes. “The manner of death is natural,” Ms. Bolcer said.

Sarcoidosis is the formation of tiny clumps of inflammatory cells in one or more organs of the body, according to the Foundation for Sarcoidosis Research. Chronic inflammation can lead to permanent thickening or scarring of organ tissue.

...or as full of surprises as an owl pellet.

Comanche Voter

It's going to take 1,000 wooden stakes and an entire year's output of garlic from Gilroy, CA--the "garlic capital of the world" --for us to finally be rid of the Hildebeest. She was, is and always will be a nasty piece of work.


How unsurprising that Hillary! claims to have no idea how to battle the Antichrist.


Also, as far as the 'leaks', I've been interested in how circa's scoops have disappeared in the last few weeks.

Bannon was probably Circa's source for "good" leaks out of the WH.

Old Lurker

RG says "it's complicated and that Ledge Dwellers will be impressed when the AG brings his hammer down on all these miscreants.

Okey Doke.

Jokes going to be on RG when every one of the Royals skate on all matters from the CCF on down to DWS and the DNC, leaving some poor Commoner to take the fall for all of them, and spit on the graves of the dead soldiers, spies and diplomats who sacrificed for us because of these crimes and idiocies.

Frau  Klapperschlange

Goodie, an international summit of leaders in Chicago!

With the summit, Obama said he and his wife Michelle Obama want to "hear directly from the future leaders we want to cultivate."

"And what makes me so hopeful, so optimistic, is that so many of you have shown up, dived in and embraced the kind of active citizenship that makes our democracy work," he said.

Old Lurker

"How unsurprising that Hillary! claims to have no idea how to battle the Antichrist."

Perhaps if Hillary! had had to spend the last ten months holed up with her defense lawyers, she might not think she is our once and future savior, risen from her unfair death, and the MSM would not be touting that line once again.


Now there's a #HillaryClintonMisreadsBooks Twitter thread, to which our fearless leader contributed:


Many others, e.g.

Lolita: Nasty little bitch seduces a womans saintly husband and it's not his fault.


Did this get posted? I'll believe it when I see it, but it is interesting. Trent Franks (R-AZ) on Fox News re: possibly Awan wife immunity deal:

“I don’t want to talk out of school here but I think you're going to see some revelations that are going to be pretty profound. The fact that this wife is coming back from Pakistan and is willing to face charges, as it were, I think there is a good chance she is going to reach some type of immunity to tell a larger story here that is going to be pretty disturbing to the American people.”

"I would just predict that this is going to be a very significant story and people should fasten their seat belts on this one."



It sounds like Ms. Clinton was honest about her feelings (something missing from the campaign except by accident), and allowed a certain level of amusing sourness into her book, as well as providing tips on good bars and vodkas. That makes this a window into a state of mind, but hardly source material for a factual account of her campaign.

Since she did let out the sardonic sour that Hillary's friends insist is a sense of humor, I guess she's not running in 2020. That makes every Dem except Huma and Husband happy, I am sure.


College Park MD to allow noncitizens to vote, like they will stop them from voting in Federal elections as required by law.

Frau  Klapperschlange

GUS nailed it; considering her appearance on The View he said,

Mizter Behar, I'm ready for my closeup"

It's going to take more than one "close family friend" to make her feel comfortable.

Miss Marple

On phone

Am in agreement with RG. No surprise.

Wasn't McMaster chosen when Flynn had to leave? I would assume General Flynn General Flynn had some input on his replacement. I think everyone forgets this.

I think people like Cernovich are causing doubt and division for their own purposes. Anyone who is using him as a source is very misguided, and that includes Steinberg.


I don't like this for one minute. A deal with the Awans to get an obsolete player like DWS?

Looks like we get a dog and pony show again.


The Awans were in with all the Dems in DC. You pursue that, there is nothing remaining of the swamp or uniparty. Maybe life breaking rocks with get them turning on each other.

Eric in Boise


Not on Twitter, but here's what I'd post:

Macbeth: Plucky lass tries to help her husband's career, nobody appreciates her efforts. Even tries to wipe blood off of her hands, like, with a cloth.

Eric in Boise

And like clockwork, at Fox online:

Clinton: I would have won

But you didn't, scrunt. Now GO AWAY.


You'd think the ugly (inside and out) HAG, would know a bit about the anti-Christ. After all she wants to be a Methodist Minister. Just like she tried to join the Marines.

We need to post each and every Rodham lie as we remember them. Corkscrewing to a landing in Bosnia, and running heads down to safety.

Etc etc.

"What Happened?"

It hit the fan, Mrs. Clinton.

TK - No *fairy* tales in your 12:20? PC Verbot?


Quotes from HC's book seem lifted from Moby Dick's Captain Ahab.


“I could stand in the middle of Fifth Avenue and shoot somebody and I wouldn’t lose any voters,” Trump bragged in January 2016. This statement should be met with only a modicum of skepticism. Trump has mocked the disabled, withstood multiple accusations of sexual violence (all of which he has denied), fired an FBI director, sent his minions to mislead the public about his motives, personally exposed those lies by boldly stating his aim to scuttle an investigation into his possible collusion with a foreign power, then bragged about that same obstruction to representatives of that same foreign power. It is utterly impossible to conjure a black facsimile of Donald Trump—to imagine Obama, say, implicating an opponent’s father in the assassination of an American president or comparing his physical endowment with that of another candidate and then successfully capturing the presidency. Trump, more than any other politician, understood the valence of the bloody heirloom and the great power in not being a n*gger.


The TARLOV libtard on OUTNUMBERED has been CAKED to the HILT with make-up. She almost looks like a female. She is trying to make a case that RODHAM cared about BENGHAZI, because she was SO CLOSE to Christopher Stevens.


How do you spell Rodham???



COMMIES still trying the RUSSIA line.

Russia had NOTHING to do with our election.


Frau  Klapperschlange

Patterico's mental misfit must be in a time-out period.





I'm not confident that Ms. Awan is any big catch, immunity or not. She probably likes living in the US better than living in Poke-ee-stahn, and got a "good deal" to return. Not saying she isn't a criminal, just saying she may be in the dark about her hubby's espionage. She gets immunity, and he gets tagged with theft of services and equipment - BFD.


From prev thread : "Ryan is a leftist Democrat/Globalist ..."

The Speaker before Ryan was not much, either (Boehner). Why can't the Repub House put in a pro-America leader?


From . Even Charley is to blame:

Hillary: “You don't understand! I coulda had class. I coulda been a contender. I coulda been somebody, instead of a bum, which is what I am. Let's face it. It was you, Charley.”



Cboldt, I'm sure Cheryl Mills has been hired to handle all of the IMMUNITY details. Not to worry, the F.B.I. is known to have the most INTEGRITY in the entire SWAMP.

Oh, and I make the best SHIT SANDWICH in America.

My shit SANDWICH is BETTER than all the rest.



From On the Waterfront. Even Charley is to blame:

Hillary: “You don't understand! I coulda had class. I coulda been a contender. I coulda been somebody, instead of a bum, which is what I am. Let's face it. It was you, Charley.”



Green at Insty write about Hilligula's book recriminations tour:

But she doesn’t seem to have learned anything, if her book and recent statements are anything to go by. Clinton not only thinks that Trump is an inexcusable disaster, but her book indicates that she places the blame for him (while blithely comparing herself to Cersei from Game of Thrones) on those same deplorables, still so full of “anger and resentment.”

So while there’s always good fun to be had at the expense of a clueless politico, the idea of a sitting President filled with that much contempt for her fellow Americans ought to make one shudder.

So...Mr. NeverTrumper Green: would a Prez Curb Dive have more or less contempt for "fellow Americans" than Preznit Jiveass? Take your time to think your answer over...


The professional political class finds NWO to be an inevitable and good thing. "Nationalism" is considered a dirty principle. This political evolution has been going on for hundreds of years. In the US, manifested by ascendancy of FedGov over state govs starting in earnest with Woodrow Wilson.

At the same time, all claim to be "pro-America." The open borders advocates assert their preferred policy is pro-America. Some with single payer health care, "pro-America."

Ralph L

Bannon was probably Circa's source for "good" leaks out of the WH.
He couldn't very well leak to Breitbart.


GUS - Ayup. "Dear FBI, 'Integrity' doesn't mean what you think it means."

RHIP, and they all have rank.

Ralph L

Her book tour is billed to be "surprisingly funny."
Surprising to her when it's funny.


The thing about Hillary, is that her mind set is typical among the professional political class. She just lacks charisma. And the smidgen of smarts it takes to hide sociopathy.

Captain Hate

Why can't the Repub House put in a pro-America leader?

They take their marching orders from the donor class and not the base. That's why they've been banging this open borders policy even after Cantor got run.



Amid wild applause, Clinton made her way up to a raised platform, and then . . . she sat down and started signing. No hello to the crowd, no thanks for the hours of waiting — let alone decades of support — no apology for or acknowledgment of being an hour late, or losing the most consequential election in American history. Not a single word. She just started signing.

Waiting patiently to Hillary’s right, mere feet from her stage, was a line of wheelchair-bound seniors. “Hey guys, I need everybody to move over this way,” one staffer directed, as if that were so easy. Another staffer hijacked a fan’s wheelchair, saying, “We’re going for a ride,” while moving the fan aside.

Another attendee approached the officials. “She’s not going to speak?”

“This is all you’re getting,” came the reply.

Yes, typical Clinton class was on display here.

This book, we’ve been told, will show us a different Hillary, a humbled candidate taking personal responsibility for her loss. Yet just as that’s not true — as we all know by now, she blames Bernie Sanders, the Russians, James Comey, et. al in her memoir — in hawking it, she can’t help but revert to form. Wait for hours, sweat it out, love her all you want — she’s popping in for your cash, nothing more.

Lacking charisma? This scrunt lacks basic humanity. Oh, but that vulgar Trump fellow...

Captain Hate

no apology for or acknowledgment of being an hour late

Slick was never on time which shows, in addition to poor upbringing by his whore mother and her conveyer belt of "husbands", contempt for the audience.



I'm warning ya: don't make me break out the JOM Trumpean Bell Curve™ again!

Captain Hate

This is what they figured out to do in the August recess:



More from that 1:11 link:

Among the enduring criticisms of Hillary Clinton: Her sense of entitlement is limitless. She’s tone-deaf and doesn’t understand the average American — nor does she care to. Her greed is insatiable.

Add to this a gaping lack of self-awareness, and you have all the ingredients for the New York City launch of Hillary’s nationwide book tour Tuesday morning.


A limited number of wristbands for entry will be distributed on a first-come, first-served basis with purchase of the featured title at Barnes & Noble Union Square. Hillary Rodham Clinton will sign copies of her new release, “What Happened” and the 2017 illustrated children’s edition of “It Takes a Village,” no exceptions or personalizing. She will sign up to two books per customer, one of which must be “What Happened.”

No other books or memorabilia please. Posed photos or selfies will not be taking place . . . Book purchase and wristbands are both required to meet the author, no exceptions. Customers without wristbands will not be allowed to participate in any capacity.

Doesn't that just fairly scream "surprisingly funny" to you?


From Chicago:

Ask Lyle.

"What? No IDs?"

David, Internet Deplorable

This seems appropriate, given the circumstances. This is a modified and expanded thought from a poster at Althouse.

A quote from Hillary Clinton's book:

"Attempting to define reality is a core feature of authoritarianism. That is what the soviets did when they erased political dissidents from historical photos. That is what happens in George Orwell's classic novel "Nineteen Eighty-Four," where a torturer holds up four fingers and delivers electric shocks until his prisoner sees five fingers as ordered. The goal is to make you question logic and reason and to sow mistrust towards exactly the people we need to rely on: our leaders, the press, experts who seek to guide public policy based on evidence, ourselves. For Trump, as with so much he does, it is all about simple dominance."

Hillary, you ignorant slut. Oh, right! To call you ignorant is an insult to ignorant people! I've known sheep that could outwit you. I've worn dress pants with higher IQs. But you think you're an intellectual, don't you, Hillary? Now let me correct you on a couple of things, OK?

The theme of "1984" is not "respect authority."

Aristotle was not Belgian.

The central message of Buddhism is not "Every man for himself."

And the London Underground is not a political movement.

Those are all mistakes, Hillary. I looked them up.

Who are Hillary Rodham's Mommy and Daddy? Does she come from good stock in any sense?

And her staying power over the decades? Gotta hand it to her. Nixon was right when he said we weren't going to be rid of the Clinton's any time soon.

Apologies in advance if I've mistakenly attributed the reference to Tricky Dick.

I don't believe we will even get that, unfortunately.


I would question the NYPost on this:

"losing the most consequential election in American history"

That's at least debatable. I think it's something #NeverTrumpers (of which there are some at the NYP) say because Trump is so horrible, in their view. That seems to be what is meant here.

Otherwise "consequential" can't be judged now. I thought 2000 was hugely consequential, in a good way, but then we ended up with Obama, so hugely consequential in a bad way.

I might argue that it was hugely consequential because Hillary would have been the greatest catastrophe to befall the presidency since at least James Buchanan, given where the country was, but that obviously isn't what the Post meant.

At least some good news today from Zogby:

"Virginia Gov. Terry McAuliffe, a media and Clinton favorite, is dead last with just 1 percent supporting his candidacy in the Zogby Analytics survey of likely Democratic primary voters provided exclusively to Secrets."

Of course, we know what will happen when Tricky Terry gets his hands on the votes.

Heard Mark Levin in passing on the radio yesterday.

He was lamenting about POTUS having made a deal with Pelosi and Schumer. Was absolutely frothing over it.

Any idea what he was referring to? It would seem it proved to Levin that POTUS is a fraud.
