Hillary Clinton Doesn’t Understand Why Trump Keeps Talking About Her and Why He’s Right To

As my colleague Alex Parker reported, while appearing on “CBS Sunday Morning,” failed 2016 Presidential candidate Hillary Clinton proved that she still believes she’s somehow the rightful winner of the election she lost to President Donald Trump.

To her, the proof is that Trump still talks about her and she reasons that it’s because he knows he’s the illegitimate winner.

“Look, there were many funny things that happened in my election that will not happen again,” Clinton continued. “And I’m hoping that both the public and press understand the way Trump plays the game … he knows he’s an illegitimate president. I believe he understands that the many varying tactics they used — from voter suppression and voter purging to hacking to the false stories — he knows that there were just a bunch of different reasons why the election turned out like it did.”

“It was like applying for a job and getting 66 million letters of recommendation and losing to a corrupt human tornado. And so, I know that he knows that this wasn’t on the level. I don’t know that we’ll ever know what happened,” Clinton concluded, adding, “but clearly we know a lot and are learning more every day and history will probably sort it all out, so of course he’s obsessed with me. I believe it’s a guilty conscience in so much as he has a conscience.”

Literally none of the things she mentioned are true. Trump won fair and square, and despite Democrat’s best efforts to nail him on illegitimacy, everything has come up bunk. In fact, talk like the kind Clinton has engaged in has only deepened the divide and wasted a lot of the nation’s time and money in trying to bring Trump down.

But all this is beside the point. The reason Trump continues to bring up Clinton isn’t that he somehow knows she’s the rightful winner of 2016 — she’s definitely not — but because Clinton is a loose end that no one seems to want to tie up. There are so many unanswered questions surrounding Clinton, and the fact that they continue to attack him with various claims of corruption while ignoring the obvious oddities staring us in the face when it comes to Clinton is ludicrous.

As my colleague, Streiff, wrote, as much as 130 Democrat state department employees may soon lose their jobs over the fact that they sent classified emails to Clinton’s private bathroom server, and we still don’t have any clue as to the extent of the damage her unsecured server caused, nor do we still have any idea what was in the missing emails.

We do know that it was compromised and that some of her emails were forwarded to a Chinese email account, as my colleague Bonchie reported.

We still don’t know who okay’d her private account in the first place.

We’re still also in the dark as to how deep the Obama administration and the Clintons were in working with Russia when it came to the Uranium One scandal. In fact, judging by all the money that changed hands between Clintons and Russia, it’s a wonder people aren’t looking into it.

Investigation after investigation has been launched into trying to put Trump into some sort of legal trouble that would either damage him enough to ruin his trust with the American people or somehow remove him from office, but very little has been put into figuring out exactly what was going on with the Clintons.

There’s definitely a ton of smoke coming from Clinton, and with a little bit of digging, we’d no doubt find a blazing fire. However, hardly anything is being done to look into it, and the media is doing its level best to avoid talking about it.

Of course Trump is bringing up Clinton. We should all be bringing up Clinton.

She’s one of the biggest plugs between us and draining the swamp.

Hillary: Trump is obsessed with me because he has a guilty conscience over 2016

Westlake Legal Group hc Hillary: Trump is obsessed with me because he has a guilty conscience over 2016 Trump The Blog impeachment illegitimate Hillary Clinton democrats 2016

Via the Free Beacon, this reminds me of Anthony Scaramucci claiming that Trump secretly has poor self-esteem and is forever overcompensating for it.

Are we watching the same person?

He doesn’t privately fear that he’s an illegitimate president or harbor a “guilty conscience” that he won unfairly. He fears, and resents, that other people view him that way. To the extent that he remains focused on Hillary (he mentions Obama much more often than her, no?), it’s partly a product of that resentment and partly because she was such a useful foil for him in 2016. The one Democrat in the country whom we know for a fact he can beat in an election is Clinton. The whole point of the outreach to Ukraine about Joe Biden was to try to rerun the 2016 playbook against him if he made it to the general election — just like Hillary, he’s another swamp-dwelling Washington mainstay who landed a top job in the Obama administration and used his influence to benefit himself and his own. Hillary’s campaign received help from Ukrainian officials too, which explains why Trump continues to entertain the conspiracy theory involving CrowdStrike and the DNC server. At a moment when he’s not polling well head to head against any top Democrat, anything POTUS and his team can do to keep an unpopular figure like Clinton front and center is good for him.

How nice of her to lend him a hand with this latest media tour! And with buzzworthy social-media shots like this:

A tantalizing thought from Jacob Heilbrunn: Could Trump’s impeachment jam encourage her to jump into the race? My money’s on “no, no one is so lucky that they’d get to face Hillary Clinton twice,” but keep hope alive:

Clinton’s aggrievement about the 2016 election should hardly come as a surprise. The belief that the election would be rigged was originally floated by Trump, but after he triumphed it was suddenly embraced by Democrats. The inconclusive Mueller Report was supposed to represent an extensive attempt to get to the bottom of the controversies swirling around the election and Russian influence, but only ended up heightening partisan polarization.

Now it’s difficult not to wonder if Clinton is pining for another go at Trump to try and prove that she has what it takes to oust him from the Oval Office. The conventional wisdom is that Biden is too old to make a real run for it and that Elizabeth Warren is too left-wing. Wall Street hates her as much as she hates it. By contrast, Hillary comes from what used to be called the New Democrat wing of the party. Wall Street loves her as much as she loves it. If she jumped in the race now, she could argue that now more than ever Democrats need her to regain what was stolen from them in 2016. The name of her book about the race was called What Happened. Now she could declare, “It’s happening!”

She’d lose the primary in a landslide if she got in, I suspect. She’d look strong early as Biden’s voters stampeded from him to her, abandoning a candidate who’s underwhelming on his best day but now saddled with Ukraine baggage, but the name of the game in this year’s race is “electability.” Democrats aren’t rolling the dice on anyone whom they have reason to believe would underperform against Trump. And as I say, there’s only one Democrat in America whom we know for a fact is capable of doing that.

Exit question: Between Trump and Hillary, who’s more obsessed with whom? Read Miranda Devine on that subject.

AOC Acts Stupidly, Says It Was “Not Easy” for Reps. Waters and Tlaib to Be First to Call for Impeachment

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., makes an objection to a Republican argument as the House Oversight and Reform Committee considers whether to hold Attorney General William Barr and Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross in contempt, on Capitol Hill in Washington, Wednesday, 6/12/19. (AP Photo/J. Scott Applewhite)

Over the weekend, Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (NY) took to the Twitter machine to express much love to her BFFs Reps. Rashida Tlaib (MI) and Maxine Waters (CA) for the “not easy” job of being on the early “Impeach!!” bandwagon.

Here’s what she wrote:

Because, ya know, it’s super-difficult to call for the impeachment of a Republican president when almost every Democrat you work with and most of the hardline Democrats in your solidly blue district want it, too.

She continued on:

Death threats are, of course, always unacceptable but as to the “criticism”? It mostly came from people who the AOCs, Tlaibs, and Mad Maxines of America view as accomplices to the corruption and who have “blood on their hands” because they support gun rights and don’t view everything from the unhinged prism of Orange Man Bad.

Just for the record, let’s take a look at what Ocasio-Cortez is really praising here:

As I wrote last week, Maxine Waters was calling for Trump’s impeachment barely two weeks after he was inaugurated. And she wasn’t doing it over any allegations of impeachable offenses, because there weren’t any. She did it over political disagreements. Waters is the same Democrat who raged in 1998 that Republicans were using impeachment as a political tool due to the “hatred” they felt for President Bill Clinton.

Waters even went so far as to call Republican impeachment efforts against a president who had lied under oath a “coup-d’etat”:

Two years before she was elected to Congress, security staff dragged former Michigan state legislator Rashida Tlaib out of an August 2016 speech being given by then-nominee Donald Trump in Detroit.

Watch:

She later wrote an opinion piece comparing her actions to those of Rosa Parks:

I have heard critics calling it unbecoming of a former state legislator. Well, I believe it is unbecoming of any American to not stand up to Trump’s hate-filled rhetoric and tactics. Growing up the daughter of Palestinian immigrants in Detroit, I was taught about how Walter Reuther, Coleman Young, Rosa Parks, Viola Liuzzo and other great Detroiters risked their lives for justice. I still remember at the age of 12, learning that segregation had been permitted only a couple of decades before I was born and that a woman’s right to vote was not even a century old. But it was great Americans who stood up, some dying for the cause, to make our country better.

As I wrote in tweet response to AOC, this has been about Orange Man Bad from the start, not any alleged corruption. Trump had not even been elected in 2016 when Tlaib was having rage fits about him and and in 2017 after barely two weeks in office, Waters was floating impeachment based on political disagreement:

Get Democrats a Band-Aid, Because Trump Surpassed Obama’s Approval Rating

Westlake Legal Group trump-obama-620x349 Get Democrats a Band-Aid, Because Trump Surpassed Obama’s Approval Rating republicans polls Politics Front Page Stories donald trump democrats Barack Obama approval numbers Allow Media Exception 2020 Elections

That’s got to sting.

According to Nate Silver’s 538, President Donald Trump has officially passed former President Barack Obama in approval ratings.

The site keeps track of various polls from different websites and found that Trump’s approval now sits at 42.8 percent. Around this time in Obama’s presidency, the left’s most glorified leader had a 42.7 percent approval rating.

This can be considered bad news to Democrats for a few reasons.

For one, they’re right in the middle of trying to bludgeon Trump with anything they can find in order to make him unpopular enough for their own 2020 candidates to have a chance if they can’t use it to kick him out of office. His rising approval numbers only show that their efforts are failing badly and that Trump is going to be around for a very long time.

Secondly, it’s a blow to a Democrat narrative that considered Obama’s administration to be a highly thought of presidency, much more so than any Republican. That a Republican — and a Republican that they hate with every bone in their body no less — is somehow being thought to do a better job than their former chosen one isn’t going to be a good morale booster.

The truth is that it’s likely their constant attacks on Trump are driving this approval up. So far, the vast majority of the attacks have been pretty insubstantial, such as the Russian collusion, charges of racism, and more. After all of that, the Democrats are once again trying to nail Trump to the wall with this Ukraine scandal, and this time, they’re pushing forward with impeachment.

It’s likely that the American people are just tired of it and are now rallying behind Trump.

Trump seems to now share the same kind of boost received by organizations that get attacked by media and activists such as the NRA and Chick-fil-A, which for a Republican president, is the best thing one could hope for. Seeing as how the Democrats can’t help themselves but lose it if he breaths out of the wrong nostril, you can probably expect Trump’s approval to go up a bit more before the 2020 elections are done.

Joe Biden’s Campaign Tried to Shut Down Rudy Giuliani Last Weekend and They Had a Very Good Reason

Yesterday, Rudy Giuliani was just about everywhere. The fact that he was everywhere is a testimony to the lack of clout Joe Biden’s campaign has with the media.

Joseph R. Biden Jr.’s presidential campaign contacted top television anchors and networks on Sunday to “demand” that Rudolph W. Giuliani, President Trump’s personal lawyer, be kept off the air because of what they called his misleading comments about the Biden family and Ukraine.

“We are writing today with grave concern that you continue to book Rudy Giuliani on your air to spread false, debunked conspiracy theories on behalf of Donald Trump,” a pair of top Biden campaign advisers, Anita Dunn and Kate Bedingfield, wrote in the letter.

“Giving Rudy Giuliani valuable time on your air to push these lies in the first place is a disservice to your audience and a disservice to journalism,” the advisers wrote.

The note, which was obtained by The New York Times, was sent to executives and top political anchors at ABC, CBS, CNN, Fox News and NBC, including star interviewers like Jake Tapper, Chuck Todd and Chris Wallace.

This is what it looked like:

Now there are two reasons why Biden’s campaign wold do this. The first is that they are playing multidimensional chess and they want to draw as much attention to Giuliani as possible because they know Giuliani is hurting Trump. That view has a lot of agreement from some people on the right.

Not to take a shot at Steve or anything but just to illustrate the point of view that Giuliani was harmful to Trump.

Personally, I think this is wrong. The Democrats in the House have essentially locked themselves into voting to impeach President Trump. Despite Jeff Flake publicly masturbating to the idea of 35 GOP senators voting to convict Trump, that isn’t going to happen. The more important fact is that the Democrats have two choices: fight the 2020 presidential campaign on the subject of impeachment or risk alienating their most loyal voters. There is zero evidence that impeaching Trump is a political winner and a lot to indicate it is a loser. More to the point, the alleged “scandal” that has generated the current hair-on-fire hysteria is difficult to understand. Where does it say that a President can’t tell a foreign country to investigate misconduct as a condition of getting foreign aid? Was a law passed since 2016 that says a political campaign can’t use foreign actors to gather oppo on their electoral opposition? Is there a law that says the son of a Democrat presidential candidate CAN’T be investigated for fairly blatant involvement in influence peddling in another country? When did we pass that law?

What is easy to understand is the underlying allegation. You have a monumentally undisciplined son of a prominent US politician–a guy who was tossed out of the Navy Reserve for cocaine use and whose ex-wife complained of his blowing the family budget on blow and hookers–landing a $50,000/month gig and, when the locals get onto him, his Daddy threatens to pull the plug on $1 billion in aid unless they fire the prosecutor and make it all go away. And it does.

I guarantee you that every single American who doesn’t work for The Bulwark and even many of those who work for National Review understands that narrative without any kind of a Vox.com explainer.

What Giuliani did was a masterclass in what Obama staffer David Plouffe called “stray voltage:”

This is the White House theory of “Stray Voltage.” It is the brainchild of former White House Senior Adviser David Plouffe, whose methods loom large long after his departure. The theory goes like this: Controversy sparks attention, attention provokes conversation, and conversation embeds previously unknown or marginalized ideas in the public consciousness. This happens, Plouffe theorizes, even when–and sometimes especially when–the White House appears defensive, besieged, or off-guard. I first discovered and wrote about this in July of 2012.

As a theory, “stray voltage” exists in a kind of strategic void. It can’t be dismissed or embraced as workable because creating controversy for the sake of controversy is, well, achievable. Like getting soup from the White House mess. It’s also self-reinforcing and internally didactic. Everyone looks around and says, “See. There’s controversy. It’s working.”

But it’s also revealing when the emphasis has shifted to a “pen and phone” strategy that elevates executive action over messy legislative haggling. The pen-and-phone approach has become a low-level White House fetish, with efforts to sidestep Congress and place Obama at the center of the action all-consuming.

Giuliani said a lot of things over the weekend. If you don’t like Trump you’re probably shaking your head in amazement. But if you aren’t suffering from Stage 5 TDS you heard a lot about Biden’s corruption. Some of it may even be true but what hasn’t happened is any of it being investigated by law enforcement. And because of that lack of investigation and because of the ease of understanding of the narrative, the Biden campaign realized that this was going to play into the hands of Republicans, but, more importantly his Democrat opponents are going to start pushing these stories as well. And absent and investigation, no one is going to pay any attention to the people running around screaming that this or that has been “debunked.”

What is more, is that nearly all of Giuliani’s claims are going to be discussed. Some of those claims will fall away. Some will stick like epoxy to the Biden campaign. And at the center of it all is Donald Trump who can tweet the claims to his heart’s content and, because he didn’t make them, never has to justify a single one of them.

Biden knows this. His campaign knows this. His donors know this. And that’s why they didn’t want Giuliani roaming the networks yesterday.

(AP Photo/Alex Brandon, File)

Over the past two weeks, we’ve suffered through an onslaught of news surrounding President Trump and Ukraine. Breaking news story after breaking news story, many of which have turned out to be false of misleading, have led the way. The media have been absolutely rabid and perhaps even worse than during the Mueller investigation. You can see some of the things they go wrong just leading up to the call transcript’s release at my piece here.

To say they’ve not covered themselves in glory is an understatement. Since then we’ve had Democrats like Rep. Adam Schiff lie in hearings and Sen. Chris Murphy make up things about meetings with Ukraine to support the narrative. There is no length they won’t go to.

To all that, I’ve got this say: Impeach Trump.

Enough talk, more action. Americans are sick and tired of the baseless supposition, false reports, misleading characterizations, and gaslighting. It’s time to do this thing. If you were to poll me right now on whether I support impeachment, I’d answer yes, 100%. Democrats don’t get to do this for another year.

And no, I’m not talking about an “impeachment inquiry,” because those don’t actually exist. It’s nonsense posturing for what is actually just another committee investigation. Pass articles of impeachment, unleash the powers that come with that, and prove your case. Enough of Rashida Tlaib cussing about impeachment and Maxine Waters getting softball interviews on CNN. Give them what they want and put your money where your mouth is.

Nancy Pelosi is slow walking this on purpose. She knows there’s nothing there. It is not illegal, nor improper for a president to ask about an investigation into possible corruption. There was no quid pro quo or pressure. Just a short, passing request. It is also not illegal, nor improper for a president to store classified calls on a classified system after a myriad of leaks had harmed the administration. We are being told stopping at a stop sign is now a moving violation and I want to see Democrats defend all this out in the open.

So do it already. Make Trump’s day.

Republican lawmakers should support this as well. It’s time for them to stop being scared of their own shadow. Tell Democrats to impeach and put their game face on. We can’t live in this middle ground any longer. It’s ripping the country apart and destroying what little sanity was left in our legislative system. We’ve been dancing around this for almost three years now. Every day there’s some new scandal, some new push for impeachment. Let Schiff, Pelosi, Nadler, and whoever else actually defend themselves for once. No more Sunday shows and back slap sessions with Jake Tapper. That’s a cowards way out. If they want to take Trump out, it’s time for them to take their shot.

Enough of the soft coup, let’s get to the hard stuff.

Attention may finally be turning toward the question of just exactly what was Hunter Biden doing in Ukraine and China while his father Joe was Vice President and point man for the Obama administration on those countries.

But Democrats really don’t want you to hear it.

Even Sen. Kamala Harris (D-CA), who is running for president in the primary against Joe Biden, came to his defense in a cringeworthy moment when questioned by the media as to what she thought. Would she approve of her Vice President’s son or daughter serving on the board of a foreign oil company as Hunter did?

“As far as I’m concerned, leave Joe Biden alone,” she said, claiming it’s a distraction (from the real goal of getting President Donald Trump). How dare people look at what Hunter Biden was doing in Ukraine and China while his dad was influencing critical decisions on those two countries!

One shouldn’t ask questions about the propriety of things like this:

Or why Hunter Biden would be appointed to a board of an energy company in Ukraine, receiving $50,000/month when he has no experience in the field.

Harris’ defense of Biden was just too much for former UN Ambassador Nikki Haley.

Right on the money.

Democrats want to distract from the real issue, which is that they have countenanced this kind of thing, both with Biden and with the Clintons.

If a candidate running for president doesn’t see the problem with it and just wants to dismiss it, maybe that person really shouldn’t be running for president.

Good on Haley for calling it out.

Harris’ defense of Biden was just too much for former UN Ambassador Nikki Haley.

Right on the money.

Democrats want to distract from the real issue, which is that they have countenanced this kind of thing, both with Biden and with the Clintons.

If a candidate running for president doesn’t see the problem with it and just wants to dismiss it, maybe that person really shouldn’t be running for president.

Good on Haley for calling it out.

Adam Schiff, D-Calif., ranking member of the House Committee on Intelligence, pauses while speaking during a media availability after a closed-door meeting of the House Intelligence Committee on Capitol Hill in Washington. Two weeks after President Donald Trump blocked its full release, the House Intelligence Committee published on Saturday, Feb. 24, a partially blacked-out version of a classified Democratic memo aiming to counter a GOP narrative that the FBI and Justice Department conspired against Trump as they investigated his ties to Russia.

On Thursday, during a live Committee hearing concerning President Donald Trump’s phone call with the Ukrainian president, Volodymyr Zelensky, Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA) fabricated Trump quotes. Schiff pretended to read from a transcript of the Trump phone call with the president of the Ukraine and made up several false things.

Republicans are now taking action.

Rep. Andy Biggs (R-AZ) introduced a motion in the House to censure Schiff which he explains during an appearance on Fox News. Biggs also noted how another one of the Democrats’ claims, that the conversation shouldn’t have been put on a secure server, fails. There was classified information on the call since Trump was discussing other nations with the Ukrainian president. That type of information, Biggs observed, is always classified. That in itself would justify putting it on the secure server in addition to the justifiable concern that the Trump administration has had about leaks.

President Trump also called on Schiff to resign.

According to PJ Media, Trump said that Schiff had “made up & twisted words into my call with the Ukrainian President to make it look like I did something very wrong.”

The president tweeted, Schiff “then boldly read those words to Congress and millions of people, defaming & libeling me. He must resign from Congress!”

He literally made up quotes from a conversation President Trump had with the leader of another nation, thereby not only undermining the President’s position at home but abroad too. America’s position is now weakened because of a) the content of Schiff’s lies and b) the publication of the transcript of a supposedly confidential conversation between two heads-of-state — a transcript that had to be released because of Rep. Schiff’s lies. Other leaders will now think twice before telling the president anything important for fear it might be leaked by Democrats in Congress and their allies in the CIA.

While claiming to care about Trump’s actions, Schiff is actually the one who put our national security in greater peril.

Schiff not only made those comments on Thursday, but he doubled down on the lies today on ABC with George Stephanopoulos, again claiming that Trump tried “to coerce that leader to manufacture dirt on his opponent and interfere in our election” which happened “at a time when the president is withholding hundreds of millions of dollars in assistance to Ukraine,” none of which was true.

And of course, that’s not the only problem when it comes to Schiff in this matter. He claimed to Stephanopoulos that once he found out about the complaint he went public and called for its release. But he only went public in the past week. He’s known about the complaint and may have even seen it since at least August 12. What he told Stephanopoulos today about that was untrue.

So what did Adam Schiff know and when did he know it?

Schiff has a long history falsehoods. It’s long past time that he be called on it.
