Picture Hillary Clinton as "Granny in the Slow Lane" as she drives her Scooby Doo Van to become President of the United States --- Now picture her as a master of a slime machine, tagging her "enemies" in the media and elsewhere as nuts, sluts and hacks


Hillary Clinton and her campaign got hit hard with a double blast from two different MSM directions  ---  both painted very negative portraits of Mrs. Clinton and/or her campaign

First, Jack Shafer a senior media editor at Politico puts it right out there   ---  "Hillary Clinton Can’t Run for President  --   So she’s pushed her whole campaign into the slow lane."   ---    "Suspended animation would look vigorous compared to what Clinton is now doing."   ---  Think about that and think of the implications  [Also get a load of one of the worst Hillary photos yet  ---  it's a Hillary photo that looks like a witch-like caricature] 

Then Ron Fournier lays out what the Hillary Clinton battle plan against Peter Scheizer's book is going to be:  Deny: Salient questions are dodged, and evidence goes missing. The stone wall is built;  Deflect: Blame is shifted, usually to Republicans and the media;  Demean: People who question or criticize the Clintons will get tarred by everything  --  don't forget the old one about the "nuts and sluts"


By far the more devastating piece comes from Jack Shafer at "Politico"  ---  it is a concept piece and it is full of analysis.  However,  a deadly threat to Hillary and to her capaign is the introduction of  Shafer's new  negative terminology.  More deadly than that is the reinforced negative imagery for Hillary Clinton as a person and as a candidate for president
.

SHAFER"S ANALYSIS

According to Mr Shafer,  "Thousands have run for president, but only one candidate has ever unrun for the office: Hillary Clinton. Ever since she finally announced her entry into the contest a couple of weeks ago, she has been unrunning with ferocity....   Why is Clinton unrunning? If the race for the Democratic Party’s presidential nomination were a Little League baseball game, the party would have already recognized Clinton’s insurmountable lead and invoked the mercy rule to give the victory to her. By unrunning, she avoids the intense political debate that would only call attention to her underfunded, unannounced and relatively unknown rivals, Martin O’Malley, Jim Webb, Lincoln Chafee and Joe Biden, all of whom are [now also un-unrunning at their own] paces...."  (See "Hillary Clinton Can’t Run for President..." by Jack Shafer, 4/21/15,  Politico/ The Fourth Estate  [http://www.politico.com/magazine/story/2015/04/hillary-clinton-cant-run-for-president-117209.html#.VTgH6dJViko]).

Later in the "Politico" article, Shafer  said,  "...  With nine months until the first presidential primary, Clinton can’t afford to actively run for president. Indeed, if she had her druthers, she probably wouldn’t even be unrunning now. She was pressured by the constant press attention about when she was going to announce and the email controversy. That sort of press attention was positive media attention she couldn’t control, and only by announcing could she dial it down. The email controversy was negative media attention she couldn’t control without the attention-deflecting machinery of a campaign. Indeed, she may be the first politician to announce for the presidency in order to decrease attention in her candidacy.   ***   She’s succeeded wildly. Her coffees, roundtables, discussions and “spontaneous” meetings with voters have immersed her campaign into a box of dry ice and slowed it to the lowest metabolic levels. Suspended animation would look vigorous compared to what Clinton is now doing. This is smart. Steady coverage on the inside of newspapers is exactly what she wants...."


SHAFER'S  IMAGERY  ---  HILLARY AS GRANNY DRIVING IN THE SLOW LANE

More important than any of Shafer's material as insightful analysis, which it surely is   ---   Shafer's article contains new terminology about the campaaign an the development of piece of imagery of Hillary as a candidate.

The most ,emorable image of Candidate Hillary Clinton that might have come out of Shafer's article is that of "Granny moving in the slow lane" [The picture from Getty images that accompanied Shafer's article in "Politico" is also priceless].  Shafer's  termnology and phraseology is equally memorable and descriptive:  Hillary's  "...coffees, roundtables, discussions and  'spontaneous' meetings ...immersed her campaign into a box of dry ice and slowed it to the lowest metabolic levels....";  "... [s]uspended animation would look vigorous... compared to ... Clinton..."; " Listening tours (or sessions) ... add a little fabric softener to [Hillary's] starchy image, buffing [Mrs Clinton's scaly reptilian exteriors down to kid-leather smoothness...."

THE RON FOURNIER ARTICLE IN THE NATIONAL JOURNAL

Ron Fournier is right up front about it  ---   "I don't know what's in Peter Schweizer's book. But I know what the Clintons are capable of.... "    (See "The Questions Hillary Clinton Doesn't Want Answered About the Clinton FoundationI don't know what's in Peter Schweizer's book. But I know what the Clintons are capable of" by Ron Fournier, 4/22/15,  The National Journal [http://www.nationaljournal.com/2016-elections/hillary-clinton-clinton-foundation-ron-fournier-20150422]).

His first full paragraph takes us all back to the good old days of the Clinton's:  "Gennifer Flowers. Cattle futures. The White House travel office. Rose Law Firm files. The Lincoln Bedroom. Monica Lewinsky. And now, the Clinton Foundation. What ties these stories together is the predictable, paint-by-numbers response from the Bill and Hillary Clinton political operation...."   The Fournier gives us this gameplan from the old Clinton playbook:
"1. Deny: Salient questions are dodged, and evidence goes missing. The stone wall is built.
2. Deflect: Blame is shifted, usually to Republicans and the media.
3. Demean: People who question or criticize the Clintons get tarred as right-wing extremists, hacks, nuts, or sluts...."

Fournier also said this:  "...   The seedy side of the [Clinton] foundation is a legitimate campaign issue. While the Clintons deserve credit for making foundation donations largely transparent, other activities raise serious questions. They violated an ethics agreement with the Obama White House. Hillary Clinton deleted most emails she sent and received as secretary of State, including any concerning the foundation or its donors....   What did donors expect from the Clintons? Did they receive favors in return? Why did the Clintons do business with countries that finance terrorism and suppress the rights of women? Did family and friends benefit from their ties to the foundation? And, in a broader sense, what do the operations of the foundation say about Hillary Clinton's management ability and ethical grounding?"

Fournier then describes what has happened when the Clinton slime machine was unleashed in the past; and now in the wake of the release of material in the New York Times about the book by Peter Schweizer.  He concludes that the wild conspiracy theories are presently more likely to be the product of Hillary's defenders like David Brock than those reporting on Peter Schweizer's book "Clinton Cash...".

Georgetown University the oldest Catholic and Jesuit University in the United States has named an award in Hillary's honor!
It is called the Hillary Clinton Award for Advancing Women in Peace and Security. Yesterday, Hills was at Georgetown to present the award. The Jesuits LOVE Hillary as I suspect most Catholic intellectuals do. All the saints and martyrs in heaven are supporting Hillary.

What is very ironic is how this blog finds every ridiculous reason the attack the Clinton Foundation with false accusations yet none of you has the courage or interest in looking at the so-called charitable fund raising done by the Brooklyn Republican Party in the after-math of the earthquake in Haiti. Where'd all that white guilt money collected in the lobbies of your white Catholic churches in the Ridge go? Your party reported to the Diocese a very high figure. None of it went to help the poor in Haiti and your local leaders know that. The Clinton Foundation on the other hand has raised over 36 million dollars and has rebuilt 150 schools in Haiti among other rebuilding such as roads and dwellings.
So address this: How much did Mr. Craig Eaton raise using the Brooklyn Republican Party's name for fund raising? How much was reported as charitable fund raising? How much went to Haiti? How much did your local Republican Party keep for itself? You the Brooklyn GOP pretending to collect money for the people of Haiti while all the time keeping the money for its own benefit. That is a fact.

So goodbye, I have to get on the F train.

Obviously, thinking Catholic intellectuals support Hillary Clinton for president. To have the oldest Jesuit University in America honor her yesterday is a great accolade.

The cover of New York Times has a report detailing how Clintons sold us out to Russians for cash. I think that may be more relevant than Rand Pauls son getting a DWI.

EVEN FRANK LOESSER WOULD TELL YOU THIS "GAME-CHANGER" COULD CAUSE HILLARY TO "...DEVELOP A COLD..."

"... IN UDDER WOYDS..." THIS "GAME CHANGER" ISN'T ABOUT HIGH HEELS, DROP EARRINGS, CLASSIC REPUBLICAN PEARLS, PANTS SUITS, MISS-PIGGY LEGS, ANKLES, CANKLES OR THICANKLES; NOR IS IT ABOUT SOME PHONY IRISH-CATHOLIC AWARDS, OR ANY OF THE OTHER BELLS AND WHISTLES THAT HILLARY'S PEANUT GALLERY WANT TO USE --- AS RON FOURNIER SAID TO "DENY, DEFLECT AND DEMEAN..."

IT'S ABOUT A LIKELY BILL, HILLARY AND CHELSEA CLINTON FOUNDATION SELLOUT OF U.S. GEOPOLITICAL AND FINANCIAL INTERESTS --- WITH THE DIRECT INVOLVEMENT OF FORMER SECRETARY OF STATE HILLARY CLINTON

Read all about it in the "Old Gray Lady" and the "Paper of Record" --- THE NEW YORK TIMES ( See "Cash Flowed to Clinton Foundation as Russians Pressed for Control of Uranium Company" by Jo Becker & Mike McIntire, 4/23/15, NY Times/ [http://www.nytimes.com/2015/04/24/us/cash-flowed-to-clinton-foundation-as-russians-pressed-for-control-of-uranium-company.html?_r=1]; see also "Donations to the Clinton Foundation, and a Russian Uranium Takeover" by Wilson Andrews, 4/22/15, NY Times/ U.S./NY Times Interractive [http://www.nytimes.com/interactive/2015/04/23/us/clinton-foundation-donations-uranium-investors.html?_r=0]). The latter item is a piece by Mr. Andrews is a schemmatic that demonstrates "... Uranium investors’ efforts to buy mining assets in Kazakhstan and the United States led to a takeover bid by a Russian state-owned energy company. [And that t]he investors gave millions to the Clinton Foundation over the same period, while Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton’s office was involved with approving the Russian bid...." and a specific speeaking fee to Bill Clinton tied to an action probably involving Secretary of State Hillary Clinton.

THE ECHO CHAMBER --- OR BOY DOES THIS STORY HAVE REAL MISS PIGGY LEGS ! ! !

"What's Happenin' in the Daily News, I'll Tell you what's happenin' in the Daily News...." New York's everyday-everyman paper is warning the Democrats, "... you've been warned: As new reports on the Clinton Foundation's foreign donations surface, Hillary Clinton might be increasingly radioactive in a general election." That's also the title of a discussion piece by Josh Greenman that came up since the Times' story broke (See "Democrats, you've been warned: As new reports on the Clinton Foundation's foreign donations surface, Hillary Clinton might be increasingly radioactive in a general election" by Josh Greenman, 4/23/15, NY Daily News [http://www.nydailynews.com/opinion/josh-greenman-democrats-fair-warning-hillary-clinton-article-1.2195981]).

To anon above who tells me to leave because this is a Republican blog:

I am a Hillary volunteer (HRC Super Volunteers) and we respond rapidly to correct the record on line wherever and whenever Hillary's work is errantly reported or her reputation is demeaned. Gale has consistently done that here. He fabricates and embellishes Hillary's professional past and he repeats false accusations made on the other right wing hate blogs about her. So long as he continues to do that you can be sure I will be visiting to correct the record. At least when someone reads Gale's hyperbole they also get the comments correcting his errant statements. So, if you do not want me here then take that up with the blogger. Is that understood?

And to the DINO writing negative statements about our Hillary. I am on to you. Whitey Bulger is more honorable than a DINO.

The correct name of the paper is The Catholic Worker not the Daily worker. It still costs only a penny. And yes I still read it. Dorothy Day if she were alive would I am certain be supporting Hillary.

Did I mention that Georgetown University the oldest Jesuit school in the U.S. honored Hillary yesterday? Go Hoyas. They showed Chris Mullin how the game of basketball was played back in the 80's.

Tonight Hillary is being honored at Lincoln Center by the women of Hollywood including Meryl Streep. Did I mention that Mary Robinson the former President of Erin will also be there on the stage with Hillary?

At this point Hillary will likely even win Florida and she might get North Carolina and Georgia too. Those are the electoral votes and she is headed toward well over 270. Could break 300. But if you are one of Gale's local readers who only cares about who is fetching Marty Golden's coffee this week, then you would not understand the electoral college.

NOW FOR SOMETHING COMPLETELY DIFFERENT: THE "SOMEBODY HAD TO SAY IT EVENTUALLY" EDITION

According to a recent report by Jerome Corsi, "... [t]he Bill, Hillary, and Chelsea Clinton Foundation – already under scrutiny for foreign donations – is now being accused of fraudulent and possibly criminal mismanagement. *** Over the past six weeks, Wall Street financial analyst and investor Charles Ortel has shared with WND, prior to publication, the results of his six-month, in-depth investigation into what he characterizes as an elaborate scheme devised by the Clintons to enrich themselves...." (See "Wall Street analyst uncovers Clinton Foundation fraud" by Jerome Corsi, 4/22/15, World Net Daily [ww.wnd.com/2015/04/wall-street-analyst-uncovers-clinton-foundation-fraud/]). According to Corsi's report for WND, "Ortel believes he has found a systematic pattern of faulty financial management and reporting that is consistent with an effort to perpetrate what he suspects may be a massive criminal fraud...."

In addition to seven or eight specific problem areas of concern, Ortel believes that the sudden hiring and firing of a young friend and business associate of Chelse Clinton after he had attempted to introduce business reforms at the foundation is very disturbing. The Young man's name is Eric Braverman.

THE REUTERS REPORT

In a late breaking report, Reuters says that "... Hillary Clinton's family's charities are refiling at least five annual tax returns after a Reuters review found errors in how they reported donations from governments, and said they may audit other Clinton Foundation returns in case of other errors. *** The foundation and its list of donors have been under intense scrutiny in recent weeks.... The charities' errors generally take the form of under-reporting or over-reporting, by millions of dollars, donations from foreign governments, or in other instances omitting to break out government donations entirely when reporting revenue, the charities confirmed to Reuters...." (See "Exclusive: Clinton charities will refile tax returns, audit for other errors" by Jonathan Allen, 4/23/15, Reuters News Service [http://www.reuters.com/article/2015/04/23/us-usa-election-clinton-taxes-exclusive-idUSKBN0NE0CA20150423]).

The Reuter's report goes on to state: "The errors, which have not been previously reported, appear on the form 990s that all non-profit organizations must file annually with the Internal Revenue Service to maintain their tax-exempt status. A charity must show copies of the forms to anyone who wants to see them to understand how the charity raises and spends money. *** The unsettled numbers on the tax returns are not evidence of wrongdoing but tend to undermine the 990s role as a form of public accountability, experts in charity law and transparency advocates told Reuters...."

Here are some specifics: "For three years in a row beginning in 2010, the Clinton Foundation reported to the IRS that it received zero in funds from foreign and U.S. governments, a dramatic fall-off from the tens of millions of dollars in foreign government contributions reported in preceding years. *** Those entries were errors, according to the foundation: several foreign governments continued to give tens of millions of dollars toward the foundation's work on climate change and economic development through this three-year period. Those governments were identified on the foundation's annually updated donor list, along with broad indications of how much each had cumulatively given since they began donating...."

Latest reports are that 146 million dollars were laundered through Canadian Banks. It was all triggered by a filing about the canadian money.

The issue may be has the GOP cried wolf? Whitewater, travel gate, and even the impeachment were really all bullshit cases. The stuff that went on here is not bullshit. The Clinton response sounds worse than the accusation. This has the look of a meltdown.
