Democrats will of course flip their wigs.
Hillary has evolved since then or she misspoke.
Hillary Clinton is campaigning hard to win Iowa’s caucuses — but a 2012 email shows she might not care for the electorate there.
Clinton called caucuses “creatures of the parties’ extremes” in a January 22, 2012 email to confidante Sidney Blumenthal.
That email was among a new tranche released Monday by the State Department as part of its ongoing effort, under a judge’s order, to make public the former secretary of state’s work-related emails.
States vote on presidential nominees through primaries — where residents cast their ballots as they would in a general election — or caucuses, where voters gather, talk and openly decide who to support. In some states there are rounds of elimination to cut out the lowest-performing candidates. It’s a process that lends an edge to the best-organized candidates with the most passionate supporters.
Clinton lost the 2008 Democratic caucuses in Iowa to then-Sen. Barack Obama. In 2004, Howard Dean was damaged by similar comments — but those were captured on video, rather than in an email.
Clinton’s email to her friend Blumenthal also includes nicknames for two of the Republican front-runners from that election cycle — Mitt Romney and Newt Gingrich — as well as analysis on how their neck-and-neck race would play out.
“If Mittens (Mitt Romney) can’t beat Grinch (Gingrich) in Florida, there will be pressure on state Republican parties to reopen or liberalize ballot access especially in the caucuses, which as we know are creatures of the parties’ extremes,” Clinton wrote.
Never should happen. Beef up security, and if you can’t, tell them to run at their own risk.
Via Times Of Israel:
Miri Michaeli, Europe correspondent for Israel’s Channel 10 news, tweets a troubling report from Paris.
The tweet reads, in Hebrew: “Chabad: Paris police order [us] to cancel most of our public [Hanukkah] candlelighting in the city, in light of the terror attack and the fear of additional attacks. Efforts [are underway] to approve a candlelighting at the foot of the Eiffel [Tower].”
No problem there…
Via Daily Caller:
Hillary Clinton told an email correspondent in February 2012 that she lost his email along with a bunch of others when she switched Blackberry devices.
“Dear Hank,” Clinton wrote to Massachusetts state representative Harold Naughton on Feb. 5, 2012. “When I switched blackberries last week, I lost a bunch of emails, including yours.”
So the very people who think he’s there to ensure a Hillary win, would by the conflict, ensure a Hillary win. The most important thing here, whoever gets the nomination is that Hillary not win.

If Donald Trump wins the Republican nomination, some of the most prominent conservative voices in the country say they would find it difficult, if not impossible, to support him.
Trump has sparred with many of America’s most noted conservative opinion makers over the course of his campaign, calling them “losers” and “idiots” on Twitter when they criticize him in columns and on television for what they perceive as his “clown[ish]” behavior, history of supporting liberal positions and demagoguery. But as it becomes increasingly evident the real estate billionaire actually has a real shot of winning the nomination, some are outright declaring that they wouldn’t support Trump as the nominee, even against Hillary Clinton.
“Couldn’t vote for Trump, couldn’t vote for Hillary,” Weekly Standard editor Bill Kristol told The Daily Caller in an email.
“Would have to find a good conservative to run as an independent whom I could vote for,” he added, before presumably joking: “Or will have to run myself!”
Tolerant academia rears its head again.

A peace and conflict studies professor at a $51,760 private liberal arts college in Pennsylvania has used his Twitter account to call Republican presidential candidate Ben Carson a “handkerchief head” and former Secretary of State Colin Powell a “house ni***.”
The professor is David Ragland of Juniata College. The website SoCawledge.com unearthed the tweets this week.
Here is a screenshot of Ragland’s August 2015 tweet insulting Carson as a “handkerchief head”.
President Of Oklahoma Wesleyan University To College Students: “This Is Not A Daycare, It’s A University”
This has been characterized as a ‘stop whining’ letter on the President’s part by media. It is that, but it’s also about how to be a Christian at a Christian university
This past week, I actually had a student come forward after a university chapel service and complain because he felt “victimized” by a sermon on the topic of 1 Corinthians 13. It appears that this young scholar felt offended because a homily on love made him feel bad for not showing love. In his mind, the speaker was wrong for making him, and his peers, feel uncomfortable.
I’m not making this up. Our culture has actually taught our kids to be this self-absorbed and narcissistic. Any time their feelings are hurt, they are the victims. Anyone who dares challenge them and, thus, makes them “feel bad” about themselves, is a “hater,” a “bigot,” an “oppressor,” and a “victimizer.”
I have a message for this young man and all others who care to listen. That feeling of discomfort you have after listening to a sermon is called a conscience. An altar call is supposed to make you feel bad. It is supposed to make you feel guilty. The goal of many a good sermon is to get you to confess your sins—not coddle you in your selfishness. The primary objective of the Church and the Christian faith is your confession, not your self-actualization.
Rudy Giuliani appeared on Neil Cavuto’s show on Fox today when the subject of Donald Trump’s comment about Muslim celebrations in the area after 9/11.
Giuliani said he had received numerous reports, he didn’t define when, from people that this had occurred, including the story of one person reporting the celebration of the Muslim cabdriver in the cab the person was in at the time. But perhaps even more significantly, he noted that there were police reports in NYC of the celebrations, that police responded, because some of those celebrating were attacked by others unhappy with the celebrating.
Giuliani also read a news report noting that there were celebrations in Paterson.
According to Newsmax, Bernard Kerik, was on CNN, where he told Carol Costello that there were some reports of people celebrating, as Giuliani said, in Brooklyn and Queens, and agreed there were reports from Paterson, N.J. and Jersey City as well. Kerik said there were different ‘pockets’ of people celebrating within the Arab community.
As a N.J. resident, I heard reports at the time and know multiple people who did in fact report celebrations in Jersey City and Paterson, including family members who saw such celebration in person.
In other words, while there may not have been ‘thousands’ in any one place in NYC or N.J. there were in fact celebrations that people saw in multiple locations.
Yes, some people want to attack Trump. But the effort to call people who saw this with their own eyes liars and to diminish this is just the latest in history revisionism. Beyond NYC and NJ, yes, there were Muslims celebrating in other areas in the world and that proof is on video. That doesn’t mean every Muslim thought that way. But to deny that many in fact did, is to beggar history.
Student Who Shut Down University Of Chicago Because He Threatened To Kill ‘White Devils’ Is Released To His Mom…Update: Picture Added…
We anticipated this last night. But so nice to know that he can still go to classes.
DOWNTOWN — A college student who threatened to kill 16 white students or staff members at the University of Chicago — leading the school to cancel classes Monday — was ordered released from federal custody Tuesday. […]
At a hearing Tuesday, he was released on home detention at his mother’s Grand Crossing apartment and ordered not to use the internet. He will be allowed to stay in classes at UIC. He will forfeit $4,500 if he misses his next court hearing.
“This turned out better than I thought, ” said Phillip Rutherford, Dean’s uncle, after the hearing. “Everyone was professional and that was the best we could hope for.”
Officials and family members said they didn’t think Dean had the means to commit the crimes he threatened. His uncle couldn’t say why he targeted the Hyde Park school.
“Why did he pick the University of Chicago? I don’t know. It’s silly,” Rutherford said.
Finally! A picture, via DNA Info:
His school has not commented on whether he will be let back on campus, although they have said that anyone facing criminal actions may face disciplinary actions.
Damn Amish are just everywhere.
MILAN – Italian and Kosovan police have arrested four Kosovars suspected of being part of a jihadist cell that spread Islamist propaganda and made threats against Pope Francis, justice officials said on Tuesday.
The four, three of whom were arrested in Italy and one in Kosovo, are all suspected of “condoning terrorism” and “inciting racial hatred”, Italian police said in a statement.
A police official said the four were very active on the Internet, promoting their pro-jihadist cause, but did not appear to have been involved in any specific plots.
“They were threatening the pope, celebrating the recent attacks in Paris and threatening the former US ambassador to Kosovo,” said Carmine Esposito, a police chief in the northern Italian city of Brescia, where the investigation was based.
Another Hoax: Black Activist Alum Found To Be Behind Twitter Threats Against Black Students At Kean University
Gee, nothing organized going on here, all the different college SJWs making false claims and making similar demands at that same time…
A recent Kean graduate has been charged with being responsible for a series of tweets threatening black students at the school two weeks ago, acting Union County Prosecutor Grace H. Park announced Tuesday.
Kayla-Simone McKelvey, 24, of Union was charged by summons with third-degree creating a false public alarm.
Park said an investigation by the Union County Prosecutor’s Office’s Special Prosecutions Unit and Kean University police found that McKelvey, a self-proclaimed activist, participated in a student rally regarding racial issues on Nov. 17, but left midway through the rally and walked to a computer station in a university library.
A group of millionaires and billionaires that includes major investors in green energy are using the international climate talks kicking off this week to push for more government subsidies for the types of companies in which they are investing.
The Breakthrough Energy Coalition on Monday unveiled policy proposals demanding that governments step up their “investment” in green energy companies. The coalition’s founding members include a host of financiers with significant green energy portfolios.
What a naive idiot.
Car service, hotels, and accommodations for the president and other administration officials to attend climate change talks in Paris are costing taxpayers nearly $2 million, according to government contracts.
The COP21 meeting of global leaders, which President Obama said is a “powerful rebuke” to terrorists, began on Monday. Representatives from 195 countries traveled to Paris, burning 300,000 tons of carbon dioxide for the United Nations conference that is seeking to reduce global emissions.

Lawyers for Boston Marathon bomber Dzhokhar Tsarnaev asked a judge on Tuesday to hold a new trial for their client, citing a Supreme Court decision that a U.S. law stiffening sentences for crimes committed while in possession of a gun was overly broad.
Tsarnaev was sentenced to death by lethal injection on June 24 in the 2013 bomb attack, which killed three people and injured more than 260.
Defense attorneys on Tuesday argued that Tsarnaev’s conviction and sentence were tainted by the law, which affected half of the 30 criminal counts he faced.
Vladimir Putin’s leadership evokes Soviet-style politics and posturing. On Tuesday, President Barack Obama suggested he take lessons from Soviet military history, too.
For years, Obama has followed a “laissez-fail” policy for Syria’s Bashar Assad — a hands-off waiting for him to fall from power — that has been driven by what he considered the wrongheaded, and costly, American invasions of Afghanistan and Iraq under George W. Bush.
Similarly, Obama said, when Putin weighs his decision to intervene to support Assad in Syria, he should keep in mind the Soviet Union’s own no-win intervention in Afghanistan, which began in 1979 and lasted nine long and bloody years.
