She looks like such an angry hag in that pic. She keeps trying to find a message beyond “it’s my time, why aren’t you voting for me, dammit!”.
MANCHESTER, N.H. – Hillary Clinton spoke of being “knocked down” and having problems with young voters in a bitter concession speech after losing to Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT)16%
Tuesday night in the New Hampshire Democratic primary.
“I don’t know what we’d have done tonight if we’d actually won. This is pretty exciting,” Clinton said to her crowd of supporters shortly after 9 PM Eastern Time, flanked onstage by husband Bill and daughter Chelsea, who did not speak. “I just want to say, I still love New Hampshire and I always will.”
“People are angry. But there’s also hungry. They’re hungry for solutions. What are we going to do?,” Clinton said.
“I know I have some work to do, especially with young people,” Clinton said. “Even if they are not supporting me right now, I am supporting them…It’s not whether you get knocked down that matters, it’s whether you get back up.”
Clinton devolved into an angry, ranting style by speech’s end, calling for “human rights” for gays, women, workers, and others. She also pivoted to focus on South Carolina, which will be decided by the black vote, talking about how African-American parents should not have to worry about their kids being “harassed” or “shot,” and immigrant families should not have to “lie awake at night waiting for a knock on the door” signaling deportation.

Gee, didn’t know they thought that about Bernie…
The Huffington Post had announced last month that each of its stories on Trump would feature an editor’s note calling the candidate a “liar,” “racist” and “xenophobe.”
If you seek to understand Barack Obama and his views, the best place to go is his speeches. But you have to read them in their entirety, not rely on hearing them or on the media’s summary of them. When you do, you realize how often what Obama says is morally and intellectually confused and even untrue.
The most recent example was his speech last week at a mosque in Baltimore. In addition to reassuring Muslim Americans that they are as American as Americans of every other faith — President Obama spoke a lot of nonsense, some of it dangerous.
President Obama: “So let’s start with this fact: For more than a thousand years, people have been drawn to Islam’s message of peace. And the very word itself, Islam, comes from salam — peace.”
Why did Obama say this? Even Muslim websites acknowledge that “Islam” means “submission” [to Allah], that it comes from the Arabic root “aslama” meaning submission, and that “Islam” is in the command form of that verb.
That’s why “Muslim” means “One who submits,” not “One who is peaceful.”

In light of his account being suspended multiple times by YouTube, popular gun video creator “Hickok45″ has found a new, more accepting home for his content.
The extremely popular, Tennessee-based video creator has decided to join Full30.com, along with many of the Internet’s other top gun enthusiasts.
According to the Full30 website, the video platform “is dedicated to providing shooting enthusiasts with quality content and a friendly community.” They host videos on topics ranging from sport shooting to self-defense to what Hickok45 is best known for: gun reviews.
According to BearingArms.com, which first reported the news:
Full30 is run by and for gun enthusiasts, and won’t arbitrarily destroy the work of popular content creators on a whim, for political correctness, or because of a faceless, nameless computer algorithm.
While Hickok45 has decided to make Full30 his new home, he will continue to upload and host his content on Youtube as well.
Hickok45′s move to Full30 comes after his YouTube account was twice shut down for allegedly violating Google’s terms of service. Both shut downs came early in the new year: The first was on Jan. 6, while the second followed two days later.
One Attendee At Hillary Clinton Goldman Sachs Speech: “She Sounded More Like A GS Managing Director”
Small wonder she’s trying to hide them.
NEW YORK — When Hillary Clinton spoke to Goldman Sachs executives and technology titans at a summit in Arizona in October of 2013, she spoke glowingly of the work the bank was doing raising capital and helping create jobs, according to people who saw her remarks.
Clinton, who received $225,000 for her appearance, praised the diversity of Goldman’s workforce and the prominent roles played by women at the blue-chip investment bank and the tech firms present at the event. She spent no time criticizing Goldman or Wall Street more broadly for its role in the 2008 financial crisis.
“It was pretty glowing about us,” one person who watched the event said. “It’s so far from what she sounds like as a candidate now. It was like a rah-rah speech. She sounded more like a Goldman Sachs managing director.”

A Black Lives Matter activist killed himself on the steps of the Ohio Statehouse, say the authorities, but not before sharing his bitter last words on Twitter.
State Highway Patrol officials tell the Columbus Dispatch that MarShawn M. McCarrel II, 23, shot himself outside the front door of the Statehouse on Monday evening.
His last tweet read: ‘Let the record show that I pissed on the state house before I left.’
Lt. Craig Cvetan says McCarrel , who was from the Columbus suburb of Franklin Township, died at the scene. He was not a state employee.
The U.S. Supreme Court on Tuesday delivered a major blow to President Barack Obama by blocking federal regulations to curb carbon dioxide emissions from power plants, the centerpiece of his administration’s strategy to combat climate change.
On a 5-4 vote, the court granted a request made by 27 states and various companies and business groups to block the administration’s Clean Power Plan. The move means the regulations will not be in effect while litigation continues over whether their legality.

Several members of the audience at a New Hampshire campaign event for Hillary Clinton sported some creative t-shirts, and they made sure TV cameras could capture their t-shirts while Hillary spoke. At least two men wore ‘Settle For Hillary’ t-shirts that utilized the official logo and font of Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign.
Jeff Bechdel, the communications director for America Rising, a Republican PAC focused on conducting and distributing opposition research, posted a television screenshot of the t-shirts on Monday night. Bechdel screencapped ABC News footage of Hillary’s event and posted a picture on Twitter:
That’s what stands out about the emails, the cosy relationship to dictating the press.
An email obtained by a Gawker via FOIA request details how a reporter for The Atlantic agreed to a write an article that was tailored to then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton‘s specific demands.
In 2009, The Atlantic‘s Marc Ambinder emailed Clinton spokesman Philippe Reines asking for the text of a foreign policy speech Clinton was set to deliver later that day. “On two conditions,” Reines replied.
Ambinder agreed to the conditions before hearing what they were, responding “Ok.” Reines then laid out the conditions (“three, actually”):
Republicans likely to be the first ‘trolls’ banned.

Twitter is reaching out for help to curb abuse and harassment on its social network.
The company is forming what it’s dubbed the Twitter Trust & Safety Council, a group of safety advocates, academics and community groups focused on maintaining open dialogue on Twitter while preventing bullying and abuse.
Taking on harrassment and bullying has been a challenge for Twitter.
Just a year ago, Dick Costolo, who was CEO of Twitter at the time, said the company was struggling to take on harassing and abusive tweets, writing in a memo, “We suck at dealing with abuse and trolls on the platform and we’ve sucked at it for years.”
All Democrat town to blame Republicans for their misery.

A special counsel appointed to investigate the lead contamination of Flint’s water says the harshest criminal charge could include involuntary manslaughter.
Todd Flood suggested manslaughter as a possibility during a meeting with reporters Tuesday. He says government officials might face that charge if they were grossly negligent in breaching a duty.
Flood and others appointed by Michigan Attorney General Bill Schuette remain in the early stages of their probe into the potential violation of civil or criminal laws. Flint’s water is contaminated from lead pipes, and experts have suggested a link between the city’s water switch and a Legionnaires’ disease outbreak in which some people died.
Really, truly, story is not a croc….
Joshua James has been arrested after allegedly tossing a 3-and-a-half-foot alligator into a Wendy’s drive-thru window. The Jupiter, Fla., resident pulled up to the drive-thru, received a drink from an employee and then threw the reptile into the restaurant, according to a report from the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission. The incident occurred in October, but the suspect was only recently taken into custody by U.S. Marshals.
James, who admitted to having picked up the alligator along the side of a road, has been charged with aggravated assault with a deadly weapon, illegally killing, possessing or capturing an alligator, and second-degree larceny petit theft, according to the Palm Beach Sheriff’s Office.
All apparently because of a mistake by the Justice Department.
A hacker, who wishes to remain anonymous, plans to dump the apparent names, job titles, email addresses and phone numbers of over 20,000 supposed Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) employees, as well as over 9,000 alleged Department of Homeland Security (DHS) employees, Motherboard has learned.
The hacker also claims to have downloaded hundreds of gigabytes of data from a Department of Justice (DOJ) computer, although that data has not been published.
On Sunday, Motherboard obtained the supposedly soon-to-be-leaked data and called a large selection of random numbers in both the DHS and FBI databases. Many of the calls went through to their respective voicemail boxes, and the names for their supposed owners matched with those in the database. At one point, Motherboard reached the operations center of the FBI, according to the person on the other end.
One alleged FBI intelligence analyst did pick up the phone, and identified herself as the same name as listed in the database. A DHS employee did the same, but did not feel comfortable confirming his job title, he said.

A man has been arrested in Saudi Arabia for wearing a cartoon costume of a woman showing skin.
The country’s morality police swooped on the suspect who was dressed as a mascot for the opening of a sweet shop in Kharaj city near the capital Riyadh.
He was accused of not complying with the strict Islamic dress code which requires women to cover themselves in public.
Pictures posted on social media show the giant mascot being apprehended by officers and the costume bundled in the back of the police car. [….]
The Committee for the Promotion of Virtue and the Prevention of Vice, as it is officially known, is responsible for ensuring Islamic laws like those are not broken in public.
But it has repeatedly been accused of human rights violations.
In 2002, the committee refused to allow female students out of a burning school in the holy city of Mecca because they were not wearing correct head cover.
