Oh, No! ‘What Happened’ to Hillary’s Wrist?

Originally posted at American Thinker

Recently, while visiting India’s ancient city of Mandu, in Madhya Pradesh, accident-prone tourist Hillary Clinton lost her footing and skidded down the stairs of 13th-century Jahaz Mahal.  It happened as Mrs. Clinton and an escort descended the stone stairs like the mother of a bride being ushered to the head table.

The former first lady’s unsuccessful effort to steady herself was remedied by a white male escort who likely convinced his wife to vote for Trump.

In any case, looking as if she had slipped on a banana peel, three quarters of the way down the staircase, the failed presidential candidate unintentionally headed into a yoga straddle split with one leg entirely in midair.

That’s when a second white male escort, wearing a matching straw hat, hurried to the side of the portly politician.  Attempting to help the men steer her carefully onto terra firma, Hillary kicked off her orthopedic sandals and tried to grip the stone with her gecko toes.

It’s horrible to say, but at 71 years old, Hillary should avoid sudden jerking motions, because lurching forward, backward, or side-to-side often results in incontinence issues for senior citizens with aging bladders.  So, after the stair incident, it’s not surprising that Miss Hillary thought it would be wise for everyone involved if she avoided the hot sun and instead slipped out of her white capris and soaked for a spell in a bath at the Umaid Bhawan Palace in Jodhpur.

Hillary, who broke her toe in London last year, has proven that elderly pear-shaped women do lose their balance, slip, and fall.

Hillary explained the London incident in the following way:

I was running down the stairs in heels with a cup of coffee in hand, I was talking over my shoulder and my heel caught and I fell backwards.  I tried to get up and it really hurt.  I’ve broken my toe.  I’ve received excellent care from your excellent health service.

Wait!  Hillary expects people to believe she was “running in heels with a cup of coffee talking over her shoulder”?  Furthermore, she also wants us to accept the excuse that gravity threw her onto the floor and she couldn’t get up because “it really hurt”?  Sorry, but a more believable explanation would have nothing to do with “coffee” being in that cup and more likely to do with a cantankerous drunk losing balance while yelling orders at her assistants.

Regardless, and despite the discomfort, the quintessential politician did manage to remember to use a broken toe moment to send a thumbs-up to Britain’s socialized health care system.

Regrettably, this year, that same thumb may be out of commission for a while. Lacking a thumb is unfortunate, because Hillary’s most recent crack-up provided the perfect opportunity for the patient to patronize Obamacare physicians of Indian descent back home in America.

Here’s what happened this time!

After a wind gust caused her to stumble on stone steps, and after nearly crashing into and killing half her team, the delicate damsel endeavored to scale the side of a large freestanding marble tub in her $1,300-a-night hotel room.  That’s when the woman who is turning into a bit of a sideshow slipped and injured the wrist she’s been using to wave to the peasants on the “What Happened” tour of India.

Collapse, contusions, concussions, and blood clots are everyday occurrences that Hillary attendants are used to handling.  That’s why, with all the marble and soapy water, if Hillary were to be knocked unconscious, Huma could handle it.  Hillary’s sidekick is so adept at medical emergencies that while texting Carlos Danger on her iPhone with her free hand, she could locate boss lady under a blanket of Mr. Bubble, drag her dead weight over the side of the tub, and administer CPR.

Hillary’s accident was eerily reminiscent of the late Whitney Houston’s untimely end.  Moreover, the bath episode is especially scary because just last week, Bollywood’s first female superstar, Sridevi Kapoor, tragically lost consciousness in the tub and accidentally drowned in a hotel room.  Luckily, America’s former first lady survived, but that injured wrist certainly put the kibosh on the plans she may have had to try out ankle bells, learn Bollywood dance moves, or guzzle Indian beer.

At first, the doctors who rushed to the palace diagnosed Queen Hillary with a sprain and wrapped the wrist in an Ace bandage.  Mrs. Clinton was advised to cancel plans to visit Mehrangarh Fort, to rest, and to follow up with a doctor in three days.

Despite the diagnosis, similar to what Americans experience whenever Hillary becomes verbally passionate about her right to tell us what to do, as the night wore on, the pain in Hillary’s wrist became unbearable.  As a result, helpers ferried Mrs. Clinton to a hospital at 5:00 A.M., where doctors took a C.T. scan and confirmed that the former first lady’s waving wrist was indeed fractured.

Either way, as of today, the public speaking leg of Hillary’s “What Happened” tour appears somewhat waylaid.

At least for a few days, Clinton will be unable to demonize President Trump publicly or blame her crushing defeat on racist, misogynist white males who coerced their docile white wives, meek mothers, subservient sisters, and compliant Caucasian co-workers into pulling the lever for Donald J. Trump.

God knows that with the way this expedition has gone thus far, the last thing Hillary needs is to strangle herself in cotton yarn on a rustic loom.  Even so, as part of the touring portion of her trip, Hillary may still do touristy things like watch carpet-weavers in bright turbans weave durry in Salawas village, “land of magic carpets.”  While she does, it appears Hillary has chosen to skip collecting signatures on the plaster cast she has hidden under a customized kurta.

Kurta or no kurta, doing damage to ancient structures, cracking marble tubs, and destroying foreign footpaths is a dreadful way for the “clumsiest woman in the world” to leave a memorable impression on India.

Sixty Million Pairs of Baby Booties

Sounding like a global extension of Saul Alinsky’s vision to transform “the world as it is [into] the world as it should be,” activist group Avaaz are committed to changing “the world we have [into] the world most people everywhere want.” 

Avaaz describes itself as being “the world’s largest online activist community.” Founded in 2007 by New York-based Executive Director Ricken Patel, Avaaz sponsors worldwide politicking and does it by addressing issues leftists believe are important such as: “protecting the lungs of the planet” and “ending dog torture in Yulin.”

Of late, human rights have captured Avaaz’s attention, especially as those rights pertain to limiting the Second Amendment.  In other words, a group that prides itself on the “ethic of global interdependence” is now endeavoring to influence the future of the US Constitution.

Well aware of Saul Alinsky’s Radical Rule #5, which says “Ridicule is man’s most potent weapon,” Avaaz recently joined the gun control effort by bringing the “heartbreak of gun violence directly to Congress’ doorstep.”  Within hours of the shooting, the group somehow managed to be driving three ‘Outside Ebbing, Missouri’-style billboards around Senator Marco Rubio’s Florida office.  The billboards read, “Slaughtered in school,” “And still no gun control?” and “How come, Marco Rubio?”

Next up on the Avaaz agenda is to participate in the effort to shame lawmakers into submission via the March for Our Lives, which converges on Washington DC’s  Pennsylvania Avenue on March 24th.

In the run-up to that event,  just as they did in Paris on behalf of climate change, Avaaz has placed 7,000 pairs of empty shoes on the lawn of the US Capitol.  Avaaz says the shoes “represent the number of children who died because of gun violence.”

To demand Congress “honor kids with gun control,” Avaaz collected shoes from celebrities, family members of gun violence victims, as well as everyday anti-Second Amendment citizens from every liberal blue state in America.

The problem with hauling all that footwear to the Capitol is that Time Magazine only “counted six adults and 35 children killed in [Parkland-type] school shootings” since 2013. The New York Times analysis of the Gun Violence Archive, “tallied 239 school shootings since 2014, including those on college campuses, resulting in 138 deaths.”

That’s why the Avaaz effort “memorializes the 7,000 children who have been killed by gun violence since the Sandy Hook school shooting” with roughly one shoe for every child the CDC claims died since December 2012.

If shoes without feet are the visual Avaaz feels makes the most lasting impression, there’s a more poignant message the human rights group should pursue.

Rather than the 14,000 shoes, on behalf of the 60-million unborn American babies eradicated since abortion was legalized in 1973, how about Avaaz switch from sneakers to baby booties?

Since Newtown, about 6.5 million American babies have been aborted, which means Avaaz could haul 13-million booties to Washington DC.  That’s 12,993,000 more booties than shoes.

What a powerful #NotOneMore visual statement it would make to place one set of knitted booties for each pair of tiny feet that were cruelly ripped from the womb by either a scalpel, suction hose, or saline.  Avaaz could memorialize the 3,000 lives lost per day and do it by switching focus from the Second Amendment to Roe v. Wade, from school shootings to dilation and evacuation, from AR-15s to suction catheters.

If Avaaz wants to stun the senses, why not place 120-million individual pink and blue booties in rows, each one belonging on the foot of sixty million lost children denied the right to life since 1973?

If the global community activists want to prove human rights are indeed a concern in America, rather than trolling Marco Rubio or saving fin whales from slaughter, charter activists could erect three blood-red billboards in front of the Library of Congress or the Lincoln Memorial.

What a powerful way to “close the gap between the world we have and the world most people everywhere want” than to speak for the voiceless who were: “Slaughtered in the womb.”  Or to challenge pro-choice politicians with questions like: “And still abortion on demand?” or “How long America, how long?”

And so, for every day those 7,000 pairs of empty shoes sit outside the US Capitol, inside abortion clinics all across America the silent screams of 3,000 babies cry out for someone – anyone – to memorialize their lives.

More Than Coincidence? ‘The Lindsey Vonn Effect’ Keeps Steamrolling Trump’s Critics

Originally posted at CLASH Daily

Karma is defined as “destiny or fate, following as effect from cause.” In Christian circles, it’s the Biblical principle of “sowing and reaping.” Time and again this simple cause and effect pattern seems to afflict those who publicly deride our current president. The trend started to emerge soon after a bevy of Republican candidates systematically were eliminated from the race for the White House and Hillary was roundly KO’d on Election Day.

Take for example US skier and Olympic gold medal hopeful, Lindsey Vonn. Before the XXIII Olympic Winter Games in PyeongChang Lindsey proudly announced that she would represent the American people in South Korea, but not President Trump. Soon after that presidential proclamation, Lindsey found herself slipping and sliding and crashing into walls.

As a result of Lindsey’s hubris, the injured Olympic darling failed to medal in her event. The disaster that followed Lindsey publicly renouncing Donald Trump should probably be called “The Lindsey Vonn Effect” for that which occurs whenever Trump-bashing culminates in an unfortunate event.

Hillary Clinton has suffered many such moments. Since she lost the 2016 election to Trump a desperate Hillary has been traveling around trying to vindicate herself to whoever will pay large sums of money to listen to her try to explain What Happened.

“The Lindsey Vonn Effect” began before the election but kicked in fully after Hillary lost and started hawking her explanatory book. In fact, in October of 2017, Mrs. Clinton while on a “What Happened” book tour in London, broke her toe after falling down a flight of stairs. The undefeatable woman who Democrats think had the election stolen from her hobbled around in a boot for months.

More recently, in India, while dressed in an ethnic outfit that looked like a cross between hospital scrubs and traditional Indian attire, Mrs. Clinton was touring the 15th-century Jahaz Mahal in Dhar’s Mandu mere hours after trash-talking Donald Trump. That’s when Hillary slid down the stone staircase. Was Hillary the victim of “The Lindsey Vonn Effect”?

And, to make matters worse, this “crash and burn” event took place just days after Hillary criticized white women for leaning on white men.

Tripping and falling isn’t Hillary’s only affliction. In fact, while out justifying her profound loss on the liberal speaking circuit, Hillary will frequently be shut down by uncontrollable coughing fits.

Hillary’s not the only one who has felt the sting of “The Lindsey Vonn Effect.”

For one, Trump-hating comedian Jimmy Kimmel has been unrelenting in his criticism of the President, especially on issues such as healthcare and the Second Amendment. Apparently, Kimmel was so busy hating the POTUS he didn’t take time to notice the negative critics-versus-Trump pattern.

Thus, after hosting this year’s Oscar show, Kimmel fell victim to “The Lindsey Vonn Effect.” Despite being directed to avoid the topic of politics, during the broadcast, Kimmel oozed Trump-revulsion whenever he could fit it in. The next day, Kimmel delivered the Academy viewer numbers that reflected “an all-time low”.

Let’s just say that Kimmel experienced ratings on par with Hillary Clinton’s gymnastic tumble midway down a flight of stairs in India.

In other words, sort of like Lindsey found out; it’s never a good idea to publicly go mano y mano with Donald Trump, especially if you don’t want to experience mortification in front of the entire world. Just ask comedian Kathy Griffin. Kathy is a woman who attempted to behead Trump in effigy, and in the process beheaded her career in real-time.

The pattern is uncanny. Add to that list Trump other critics like the NFL and Starbucks. Also feeling “The Lindsey Vonn Effect” are Trump-hating rapper Eminem who is bleeding fans, and postmenopausal pop star Madonna whose album sales tanked after ranting on about blowing up the White House.

In politics, Trump detractors like Nancy Pelosi suddenly can’t express a coherent sentence. Senator John McCain (R-AZ) criticized the president and ended up also wearing a boot that matched Hillary’s. Even Arizona Republican “Jeff Flake(y)” got caught gossiping about Trump on an open mic. Also in the mix is the perpetually peeved Trump advisor Steve Bannon, who is no longer at Breitbart, and “reality show legend” Omarosa Manigault Newman. Soon after dissing the Trump White House in an attempt to boost ratings, the occupants of Celebrity Big Brother house evicted Omarosa.

Next up in the long list of “Lindsey Vonn Effected” Trump denigrators are the always- “inspirational” Obamas. Currently, Michelle and Barry are in late-stage negotiations with paid video streaming service, Netflix, to be paid big bucks to host an open forum where they can insult Trump in front of an audience of approximately 120-million paid customers worldwide.

One week after announcing the money discussions, Netflix fell victim to an Obama-induced “Lindsey Vonn Effect.” Seems Netflix stock, which had been steadily climbing, has been increasingly diminishing in price since subscribers heard the Obama’s were going to be paid to set up camp at Netflix. The announcement met with boycotts and subscription cancellations.

Last week Netflix stock was $331.44 a share. Then, after Netflix announced they would provide Trump-bashing Barack and his bitter Bride a soapbox to spread their signature, racism, gender identity politics, socialism and community activism the “stock dropped nearly 3% in value…down & 9.35.” In other words, “The Lindsey Vonn Effect” appears to be paying a visit to Netflix and very possibly depositing itself into Obama’s ever-swelling bank account.

In the end, the sowing and reaping occurrences are probably coincidental. However, as someone who neither skis, tours Lodi dynasty period resorts, appears on Netflix, nor hosts the Academy Awards, my best advice to those who do is to tamp down the Trump criticism lest “The Lindsey Vonn Effect” come knocking at your door.

Hillary and ‘What Happened’ in India

Originally posted at American Thinker

Fourteen months into her “What Happened” tour, Hillary, with Huma in tow, decided to fly a private jet to India.  Part tourist, part guest speaker, while visiting Jahaz Mahal in Dhar’s Mandu, Hillary slipped and fell down a flight of stairs – twice.

Thinking back on one of her more ignorant comments, the only explanation for such an awkward misstep is that the ghost of activist Mahatma Gandhi, the guy she once joked ran a gas station in St. Louis, Missouri, shoved her from behind.

Hillary’s attire for her acrobatic spill was a jaunty straw hat, strappy Birkenstocks, a kurti, and capris that resembled enormous white sails.  Even stranger than her getup were Hillary’s male escorts, especially since a few days prior, she had accused white females of leaning on men to tell them how to vote.

It happened after Hillary was introduced by a journalist in Mumbai as the “woman who should have been the president of the United States of America.”  While there, Clinton spoke to an India Today Conclave about – you guessed it – why she lost the election.

During the Q&A, India Today editor and host Aroon Purie asked Clinton a question about how 52 percent of white women could vote for Trump, especially after Access Hollywood released a tape in the final weeks of the campaign featuring Trump indulging in boy talk with Billy Bush.

Maybe a more thought-provoking question would have been for Mr. Purie to ask Hillary how she managed to get the other 48% of the white female vote after staying married for 43 years to a philandering husband credibly accused of rape, sexual abuse, and other tawdry acts of sexual impropriety.

Nevertheless, groping around for anyone other than herself to blame, Hillary pinned her loss on things like “the map, economics, lack of optimism, lack of  diversity and backwardness.”  Mrs. Clinton even threw in “whites not wanting to see blacks getting rights, men not wanting to see women getting jobs, and xenophobes not wanting to see Indian-Americans succeed.”

Hillary blamed white women who she said didn’t vote for her because white women are pushed around by white men who support Trump.

Hillary lamented:

Democrats, going back to my husband and even before, but just in recent times going back to Bill and our candidates and then President Obama, have been losing the vote, including white women.  We do not do well with white men and we don’t do well with married white women.

The woman who would lean on two men to make her way down 15 steps went on to say that white women face an “ongoing pressure to vote the way that [their] husband[s], [their] boss[es], [their]  son[s], whoever, believe[ they] should.”

How is Hillary’s opinion that white women should have voted for her merely because they’re white and women any less sexist and racist than the belief that domineering white males control white females?

Either way, according to Hillary Clinton, it’s subservient white women who are responsible for her not having the opportunity to slip and fall down the Grand Staircase in the White House!

Not black women, not Muslim women in full burka, not Hispanic women married to machismo husbands, and especially not Indian women whose husbands run gas stations in Missouri and Dunkin Donuts in Delaware.

Mrs. Clinton told the crowd she was winning with those easily influenced white women until another man persuaded them to vote for Trump.   That man was FBI director James Comey.

According to Hillary, when Comey, a typical white male, informed Congress two weeks before Election Day that the investigation reopened into the private email server the former secretary of state had hidden in a bathroom closet, the news swayed white females.

Hillary explained:

All of a sudden white women, who were going to vote for me and frankly standing up to the men in their lives and the men in their workplaces, were being told, ‘She’s going to jail. You don’t want to vote for her.  It’s terrible, you can’t vote for that.’  So, it just stopped my momentum and it decreased my vote enough because I was ahead.  I was winning, and I thought I had fought my way back in the ten days from that letter until the election.  I fell a little bit short.

“I think that it was part of a historical trend that I was bucking and then it collapsed on me,” Clinton added.

Hillary stereotyped white females as those who can’t think for themselves, are easily influenced, lack conviction, and are attracted to overbearing troglodytes.  Then Mrs. Clinton charged Caucasian females with marrying and working for white men who threatened them into electing a white man, who, when not colluding with Russians, grabs women’s private parts.

Clinton followed her belittling of white women with insulting Americans of every gender and race when she portrayed Trump voters as gluttonous reality TV-loving children who prefer fast food and ice cream to wise motherly advice about eating spinach and growing up strong.

Hillary, who is about as entertaining as Barack and Michelle Obama dancing for Diwali, said:

If people were looking for a reality TV campaign, maybe I should have given them more entertainment.  I’m the mother who says, ‘Eat your spinach, you’ll grow up strong.’  Someone else is saying, ‘Eat all the fast food and the ice cream you can possibly stick in your mouth.’

Aroon Purie probed the matronly seer by bringing up Trump and Russian collusion.  Purie asked, “Do they have something on him?”  Clinton, whom they have lots on, and who has a trail of money behind her that reaches to India and back, replied: “Follow the money.”

Speaking of “following the money,” Hillary “Uranium One” Clinton amused the audience when she expressed the opinion  that “Trump [has] quite an affinity for dictators.”  Hillary said, “He really likes their authoritarian posturing and behavior.  He does have a preexisting attitude of favorability toward these dictators, but I think it’s more than that with Putin and Russia.”

Then, two days after saying the United States does not “deserve” the presidency of Donald Trump, indefatigable Hillary, looking a lot like Trump-critic and U.S. skier Lindsey Vonn, wound down her “What Happened” tour of India by sliding down a flight of stairs.

Two-Year-Old Parker and Michelle Obama’s Portrait

Originally posted at American Thinker

Didn’t a significant figure in Black history instruct Americans to judge each other on the “content of their  character, not the color of our skin?” Shouldn’t character, rather than skin color, be the primary focus for everyone who lives in this country?

Unfortunately, that’s not the case.

Recently, Michelle Obama’s official portrait was unveiled, but rather than just thank artist Amy Sherald the former first lady couldn’t control the temptation to drag skin color into a historical event.  After taking in the massive portrait of herself, Michelle had this to say about children who would eventually see her image:

I’m also thinking of all the young people…who will see an image of someone who looks like them hanging on the wall in this great American institution. I know the impact that will have on their lives, b/c I was one of those girls.

The premise of Michelle’s statement is that the former first lady spent her childhood wandering around Chicago museums looking for paintings depicting people who look like her but couldn’t find one.

And people believe that balderdash.

Based on her statement, either Michelle shunned museums as a child or thinks she’s the first black woman that black children find relatable

The truth is that throughout the history of art black and brown people have always been the depicted in paintings. In fact,  Alessandro de’ Medici, son of the most powerful and culturally-influential family in Florence, Italy, from the 15th to the mid 18th century, was the half son of a Moorish slave.  Alessandro was about as white as Barack Obama is Irish.

Now, barely two weeks after Michelle’s oh-so-relatable reveal, Americans are supposed to believe that a museum-dweller spontaneously found 2-year-old child mesmerized by Michelle Obama’s gigantic likeness?

Well, that’s the story.

Apparently, Ben Hines from North Carolina said he was touring the Smithsonian looking for “patriots” with his wife when, quite by accident, he happened upon little Parker Curry glaring at the former first lady’s image.

Ben captured the candid photo and posted it on Facebook where it went viral.  Hines told Buzzfeed

It was so touching and uplifting for me to see this beautiful child looking at a beautiful portrait of a powerful woman. I was so delighted to have been in the right place at the right time.

The little girl Parker’s mother, Jessica Curry, said her daughter “just wanted to stare…She was fascinated.”

After Hines’ photo went viral, Amy Sherald, the creator of Michelle’s portrait chimed in on how touched she was by the photo that depicted a small child, the black first lady in the large white dress, and the hovering Black security guard.

Amy said the photo brought her back to her first field trip to a museum where she saw an image by white realist artist Bob Bartlett of a “black man standing in front of a house.”

Sherald said:

There was a painting of a black man standing in front of a house. I don’t remember a lot about my childhood, but I do have a few emotional memories etched into my mind forever and seeing that painting of a man that looked like he could be my father stopped me dead in my tracks. This was my first time seeing real paintings that weren’t in a book and also weren’t painted in another century. I didn’t realize that none of them had me in them until I saw that painting of Bo’s.

So, Amy Sherald doesn’t remember her childhood but does remember seeing a painting of a black man because that’s when she realized that Art History books excluded Black people?

Clearly Amy, along with Michelle, visited the wrong museums.

The buzz now is that Parker Curry staring at Michelle’s portrait proves that images are relevant and that 2-year-old minority children, barely out of diapers, notice when they’re not represented equally in art museums.

Back to Parker Curry at the Smithsonian.  For starters, Michelle’s skin color in the Sherald painting is an odd death-pallor gray, not black or brown.  Therefore,  it’s highly unlikely a little girl thought Michelle looked like her. ‘

Moreover, how about we give the child credit for appreciating the colorful geometric shapes, which is what 2-years old do, or acknowledge that the mere size of the portrait stunned the kid.  No, instead, the default reaction for some on the left is to focus on race immediately and to use a toddler’s response to prove something about lack of representation in the art world.

What’s worse is the contrived nature of a photo that uses an innocent child to give validation to Michelle’s bizarre “looks like them” statement on the day her Smithsonian portrait was unveiled at the National Portrait Gallery in Washington, D.C.

The whole Parker in the Smithsonian photo seems manufactured.  Instead of art, for art’s sake, or a little girl just looking at a painting, now museums, art history and, portraiture have become another pawn in a discussion about race that is tearing this nation apart.
