Hillary: The Face Of The Defeated…

hillary defeated

She will never break the glass ceiling.

Via Politico:

She arrived at the East Front of the Capitol at not quite 20 minutes past 10 a.m. in a pantsuit of the softest cream, smiling gamely and waving to onlookers. She ignored a reporter’s shouted question about how it felt to be there, but off camera, some among the panelists and anchors on CNN could be heard chuckling at the excruciating obviousness of the query.

And just a half hour later, Hillary Rodham Clinton appeared at the top of the passageway leading to the inaugural platform, a mute witness to a moment of history she had prayed would never happen. As she and her husband made their way through the VIP crowd to their seats, still smiling, someone called out, “We’re here for you!”

If it was Clinton’s unhappy task to sit just behind and to the left of Donald Trump as he took the oath of office as the 45th president, she bore it with her usual stoicism and cast-iron discipline, despite a smattering of boos when her name was announced. “I am here today to honor our democracy and its enduring values,” her Twitter account declared. “I will never stop believing in our country & its future.”[…]

As rain spattered the platform, Hillary Clinton joined the comparatively small and sad ranks of vanquished candidates in open presidential races in modern times who have been compelled to stand by as their rivals took power: Richard Nixon in 1961, Hubert Humphrey in 1969, Al Gore in 2001. Nixon alone had experienced both sides of the equation, watching John F. Kennedy take the oath in 1961, and taking the job that Humphrey wanted eight years later.

“I think maybe you should deliver my address today, Hubert,” Nixon told Humphrey as he arrived at the White House for the ceremonial ride to Capitol Hill with Lyndon Johnson, trying to “keep the mood light,” he remembered.

Seattle shooting

The insanity continues.

Via KIRO:

A man was shot Friday night on the University of Washington campus during a protest for a controversial speaker, and the suspected shooter turned himself in claiming self defense, police said.

A large crowd packed the Red Square area of campus Friday night protesting a speech by controversial Brietbart News editor Milo Yiannopoulos. Police were blocking the entrance to Kane Hall, and investigators said bricks and paint were thrown at officers.

Medics received the shooting report at 8:26 p.m., after Yiannopoulos’ speech began in Kane Hall, but while a large crowd of protesters remained outside.

UW students were alerted to the suspected shooters arrest early Saturday morning. He was being questioned early Saturday morning by UW police, who are handling the investigation.

The shooting victim is 32 and suffered a life-threatening gunshot wound to the abdomen, Seattle police said. He was in critical condition at Harborview Medical Center, and was previously identified by authorities as a 25-year-old.

The University of Washington College Republicans invited Yiannopoulos to speak on Friday, the day of Donald Trump’s inauguration. People hoping to attend the event started gathering on campus around 5 p.m.

Protesters showed up around 6 p.m. and began clashing with police. Meanwhile, in downtown Seattle another protest left Westlake Park, with some demonstrators marching to the U-District to join the UW protest.

Protesters at UW threw rocks, fireworks, and other items at officers. They blocked the entrance to Kane Hall, but Yiannopoulos’ speech still started around 8 p.m.

But you weren’t welcome if you were pro-life. You’re not a woman then…

Via NY Post:

Tens of thousands of people descended on the nation’s capital Saturday for the Women’s March on Washington, joining protesters from around the world on the first full day of President Trump’s term in office.

About 200,000 had been expected at the protest to oppose Trump and push an array of progressive causes, but organizers told The Post that over double that number could turn up for the three-hour event, which kicked off at 10 a.m.

“You won’t get in. We can’t move,” said one woman talking on the phone near American Indian Museum.

After seeing the crowd coming out of the Judiciary Square Metro stop, a woman wearing a so-called pink “pussy hat” being used to symbolize the march said to a friend: “I think they underestimated this thing,” she said.

“They always do,” he replied.

Service Members Salute Trump At Armed Services Inaugural Ball…

Trump Salute

Welcoming the new CINC.

Via WACH:

The Salute Our Armed Services inaugural ball was a star-studded affair on Friday evening, literally, with hundreds of military service members from four-star generals to cadets, to police officer and fire fighters.

Trump arrived at the ball around 11 p.m., to a rousing applause. “You are special people. You are great people. I have your back. We are going to do great things for our country,” Trump told the crowd. Troops deployed in Afghanistan, at the Bagram Air Base were hooked up to the event via satellite and gave their congratulations to their new Commander in Chief.

Prior to the ball, President Donald Trump met with the Joint Chiefs of Staff, the heads of each military service branch. According to Adm. John Richardson, Chief of the Navy, the discussions allowed the new Commander in Chief and the heads of military get to know one another. More serious talks will follow, he assured.

The Senate also confirmed Gen. James Mattis to be Secretary of Defense, and Gen. John Kelly to be the Secretary of Homeland Security. “The generals get approved first. Maybe that’s the way its supposed to be,” Trump said.

Amid the crowds of hundreds of service members, veterans, first responders, and their families, was a who’s who of Trump’s national security team.

Gen. John Kelly, was just confirmed as the Secretary of the Department of Homeland Security earlier this afternoon. He told Sinclair Broadcast Group, “I am am absolutely thrilled and honored to once again be serving the nation.”

As the Trump presidency gets underway in the coming weeks, Kelly is most excited about “getting to know the quarter-million professionals in the Department of Homeland Security.”

Gen. Mattis was surrounded by admiring service members, and received an overwhelming applause when Donald Trump announced his successful confirmation.

The military ball is one of only three inaugural balls that President Donald Trump and First Lady Melania Trump attended, a decision that has sent a message to the attendees of the event. That message is that the new president will make the military a priority.

Via Twitchy:

President Trump returned the bust of Winston Churchill to the Oval Office, fulfilling a promise he made during the campaign. But the move set off a wave of speculation over what happened to the bust of Martin Luther King Jr. that President Obama had moved into the Oval Office to replace Winston.

TIME reporter Zeke Miller initially tweeted that the MLK Jr. bust have been removed entirely, but his first report was wrong.

Canadians Traveling To Women’s March Denied US Entry After Sharing Their Plans…

Womens march

Obama is no longer in charge.

Via The Guardian:

Would-be protesters heading to the Women’s March on Washington have said they were denied entry to the United States after telling border agents at a land crossing in Quebec their plans to attend the march.

Montrealer Sasha Dyck was part of a group of eight who had arranged online to travel together to Washington. Divided into two cars, the group – six Canadians and two French nationals – arrived at the border crossing that connects St Bernard de Lacolle in Quebec with Champlain, New York, on Thursday.

The group was upfront about their plans with border agents, Dyck said. “We said we were going to the women’s march on Saturday and they said, ‘Well, you’re going to have to pull over’.”

What followed was a two-hour ordeal. Their cars were searched and their mobile phones examined. Each member of the group was fingerprinted and had their photo taken.

Border agents first told the two French citizens that they had been denied entry to the US and informed them that any future visit to the US would now require a visa.

“Then for the rest of us, they said, ‘You’re headed home today’,” Dyck said. The group was also warned that if they tried to cross the border again during the weekend, they would be arrested. “And that was it, they didn’t give a lot of justification.”

Dyck described it as a sharp contrast to 2009, when the research nurse made the same journey to attend Barack Obama’s inauguration. “I couldn’t even get in for this one, whereas at the other one, the guy at the border literally gave me a high five when I came in and everybody was just like, ‘welcome’. The whole city was partying; nobody was there to protest Obama the first time.”

UK national Joe Kroese said he, a Canadian and two Americans were held at the same border crossing for three hours on Thursday.

The group had travelled from Montreal, where 23-year-old Kroese is studying, and had explained to border agents that they were considering attending the Women’s March but had yet to finalise their plans.

After being questioned, fingerprinted and photographed, Kroese and his Canadian companion were refused entry because they were planning to attend what the border agent called a “potentially violent rally”, he said. The pair was advised not to travel to the United States for a few months, and Kroese was told he would now need a visa to enter the US.

Invesitigation continues

It is going to be a long four years for Hillary…

Via Western Journalism:

Hillary Clinton on Friday received a reminder that beneath the pleasantries and political niceties that surrounded the inauguration of President Donald Trump, serious business awaits.

House Oversight Committee Chairman Rep. Jason Chaffetz, R-Utah, who shook Clinton’s hand at the Capitol during the inauguration ceremony, was quick to post an image of that moment online so that the American people could understand the difference between politesse and policy.

“So pleased she is not the President,” Chaffetz wrote in the caption of his Instagram post.

“I thanked her for her service and wished her luck,” he said, before tacking on three vital words.

“The investigation continues,” Chaffetz wrote.

President Trump Speaks From Inaugural Ball With Troops In Afghanistan

National Councilman For College Dems Of America Putting Away Childish Things, Considering Joining GOP…

HoutandHillary

He is longing for an intelligent discussion.

Via Campus Reform:

A National Councilman for the College Democrats of America is jumping ship and considering joining the Republican Party just before President-elect Trump takes the oath of office.

Michael J. Hout, a junior at the University of Massachusetts, Amherst, told Campus Reform that he believes the contemporary Democratic Party is no longer the best place for an ideological moderate like himself, saying the Party is pivoting towards more extremist rhetoric and appealing more to those who often do not even consider themselves Democrats, such as socialists and independents.

“This strategy of catering to the whims of those for whom identity politics matters more than anything else, and of allowing for even anti-white, anti-male rhetoric to find a home within the party, is a large part of its untenable strategy moving forward,” Hout explained, predicting that “it will continue to cause Democrats to lose, time and time again.”

Hout, the former National Chartering Director and Northeast Regional Director for the College Democrats, as well as the vice president for the College Democrats of Massachusetts and the president of the UMass Amherst College Democrats chapter, does not take leaving the party lightly, but believes it is essential.

In fact, not only does he plan to leave the Democrats and abdicate his position with the campus CD chapter, but Hout even says he sees himself potentially joining the Republican Party soon.

“Assuming Republicans will have me, and that those on the left assuring Armageddon will ensue with the Trump Administration are wrong, I think becoming a Republican makes the most sense for me,” he said, adding that “I look forward to fighting the uncompromising liberalism that drove me out of the Democratic Party for the good of the nation, and all who depend on us.”

Biker For Trump Breaks Through Protester Wall To Help Supporters Get To Inauguration….

There’s nothing that inspires more fear-driven respect than seeing a bunch of burly, angry bikers approaching your adorable little “protest.” No matter how much you believe in whatever is written on that unoriginal sign you’re holding, you step out of the way when you see they’re coming through.

Which is exactly what happened during the inauguration on Friday, when a wall of protestors refused to let supporters of the new President through to the inauguration.[…]

Don’t you love how the little snowflake yelled “You’re on camera!” as if that was supposed to make the biker tuck his tail between his legs and run?

What’s interesting if that they also have a group of protestors illegally preventing people from freely traveling to a lawful destination.
