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.

Michelle and Becoming Obamajugend

Originally posted at American Thinker

Giving new meaning to the title of her “highly anticipated” memoir, recently, Michelle Obama provided insight into what Becoming may actually mean.

At a Klick Health’s Muse happening in New York City, moderated by CEO Leerom Segal, medical technology expert and health care guru Michelle Obama answered questions from an audience about everything from health to social media to life outside the White House.

Emulating her master-of-passive-aggressive-innuendohusband, Barack, Mrs. Obama used the medical technology event as a platform to disparage Donald Trump’s deployment of social media.

Michelle, who just last week used Twitter to give a grown-up and committee-approved thumbs-up to David Hogg and Company’s orchestrated effort to weaken the Second Amendment, informed the audience that she “tweets by committee.”  Obama then said, “I don’t just tweet off the top of my head, which I don’t encourage people to do – especially kids.  Yes, I use social media, but I use it like a grown-up.”

Up to that point, remarks belittling Trump and alluding to racial inequity were standard Obama fare.  However, at one point, things took a turn for the worse.  And while it’s risky business to juxtapose Nazi youth and the goals of modern-day politicians, some of Mrs. Obama’s proclamations should give those “who have ears to hear” pause.

Before delving into the former first lady’s more disturbing comments, let’s take a historical stroll down memory lane with a quote from Adolf Hitler, who once made the astute observation that “he,” or in this case, “she” “alone, who owns the youth, gains the future.”

Rather than hold public office, Michelle said that, at this juncture, both she and her husband prefer to influence impressionable minds by sowing to the “collective future.” The former first lady said she plans to work with the Obama Foundation, whose mission is to “equip civic innovators, young leaders, and everyday citizens with the skills and tools they need to create change in their communities.”

Ironically, after educating America for eight grueling years, and while in the actual process of instructing yet another group what to think, the wife of the self-proclaimed “one we’ve been waiting for” then informed the Klick crowd that:

We give too much credit to leadership.  We wait for some leader to tell us what to do.  These problems aren’t solved by a man.  It is not a leader.  It is us.  We have more power to change the way people think, to change the way we treat everybody, to change the way people see us in the world, by the actions we take every single day.
During the question-and-answer period, Mrs. Obama also underscored the value of the revolutionary approach to activism when she said:

We don’t have to have policy.  No edict.  The Supreme Court doesn’t have to do anything for us not to be racist, for us to be open, for us to practice equality in our lives, in our workplaces.  We’re in charge of that.  If we lived in that country where each of us was really, really doing that, and not just worrying about a tax cut or power or holding onto power … it wouldn’t matter who was in the White House.
In other words, the queen of progressive policy and lunchroom diktats and the king, who, thanks to a renegade Supreme Court chief justice, got his unconstitutional health care law enacted, no longer need edicts, legislation, and a whole branch of the U.S. federal government.

Instead, according to the former FLOTUS, the racism and inequality that she imagines still afflicts this nation could be eradicated on the street level.  This, according to the Obama brand of militancy, would eliminate the need for tax cuts and, more importantly, a president who cuts taxes.

Simply put, the stated task ahead for Michelle is molding and making legions of community organizers who will bust up cities; aggressively attack police; attempt to dismantle the Bill of Rights; and, in the process, define it all as “hope and change.”

During the Q&A, the always upbeat Michelle summed up her assessment of American adolescents in the following way:

I’m optimistic about our kids, always.  We see these kids in Florida, the Black Lives Matter kids.  They are smart, they are passionate, they do have the right values.  They know inequity.  They know wrong when they see it.  There is hope in that next generation.  They’re tired of watching us do the same old thing and expect different results.
The interpretation of that alarming point of view is that Michelle thinks people who agree with the Obama philosophy not only recognize inequity, but also are “smart [and] passionate … [and] have the right values.”

Mrs. Obama’s observations also mean that “wrong” is whatever the radical left disagrees with.  If she took the time to think that statement through, her off-the-cuff assertion destabilizes the left’s foundational contention that the definition of wrong is relative.

Nonetheless, Michelle also indicated that she believes that divergent opinion is synonymous with insanity when she expressed that her “hope” for the “next generation” is to convince those who can be worn down by rhetoric that they are “tired of watching us do the same old thing and expect different results.”

Communist revolutionary and “fundamental transformation” advocate Vladimir Lenin hada similar attitude.  Lenin once said, “Give me just one generation of youth, and I’ll transform the whole world.”

That may be why unsettling images of thousands of young people marching in lockstep popped up when Michelle announced she’s decided against running for president.   Instead, the former first lady said she thinks “it’s a better investment to invest in creating thousands and thousands of ‘mes.'”  In other words, Mrs. Obama believes that in order to “fundamentally transform” the whole world, “older leaders” like herself need to “step out of the way and mak[e] room … [because w]e don’t need just one – we need thousands and thousands”…of Michelles?

Sorry if the comparison is an affront to historical sensibilities, but Klick was supposed to be a medical technology event, and statements like that are eerily reminiscent of the spirit that inspired “thousands and thousands” of German Hitlerjugend.  Therefore, the next time Mrs. Obama is out shilling her upcoming memoir, maybe someone needs to ask her if the word Becoming also refers to the formation of Obama youth.

Dear Leftists: An Abortion Registry Could Reduce Animal Cruelty And Warn About Potential Serial Killers

Originally posted at Clash Daily

The trait of torturing and killing animals is dominant in most serial killers. The Boston Strangler, Albert DeSalvo, abused animals, as did the DC Sniper, Lee Boyd Malvo. Killer of eight women, one of whom was his mother, mass murderer Edmund Emil Kemper slaughtered neighborhood cats and displayed their heads on poles. Before binding up, torturing, and exterminating his female victims, the BTK Killer, Dennis Rader, practiced on, you guessed it, animals.

According to psychologists, animal abuse is one of the first signs of severe emotional turmoil that often escalates into far worse. Notable butchers Ted Bundy, Jeffrey Dahmer and the Son of Sam — all joined animal abuse fan club, which prepared them to up-the-game to strangulation, cannibalism and mass murder.

That’s why, after finding out that the Parkland, Florida shooter, Nikolas Cruz had a history of animal abuse, no one was surprised. And now, to prevent animal abuse and red flag potential offenders of violent crimes, eleven states, including New York, are considering instituting animal abuse registries.

What’s interesting about the abuse/murder connection is that child, and animal abuse is inextricably linked. The data indicate that those who eventually murder humans often start out hurting animals.

Now here’s where the connections get interesting.

Abortion advocates maintain that the procedure reduces the occurrence of child abuse and infanticide. However, what studies have shown is that, rather than prevent child abuse, abortion contributes to the problem.

Based on the Canadian Journal of Psychiatry, and the National Institutes of Health, in a 1979 article by Dr. Philip Ney entitled: “Relationship between Abortion and Child Abuse”, “an increasing rate of abortion will lead to an increasing rate of abuse.” And since 1979, those findings have undoubtedly been proven correct, as child abuse has gotten worse, not better.

In a 2005 Bowling Green State University study researchers found that women who had a previous abortion were 144% more likely to abuse children that followed. Those statistics explain why, over the years, dead babies are consistently found in playground trashcans, in Walmart garbage bins, in bags while being carried by mom on shopping excursions to Victoria’s Secret, stuffed into suitcases and thrown into ditches, or laying in backyards with umbilical cords still wrapped around their tiny necks.

So, here’s a suggestion for the animal abuse registry advocates, how about, as a way to ward off future serial killers, let’s forget the animal abuse hotline and institute an abortion abuse registry instead?

After all, if a woman has had an abortion and chooses not to perform a post-birth abortion on any of the children who miraculously survive her womb, there’s a chance that, in some cases, if blatant disregard for human life still exists it will be passed along to other offspring.

That hypothesis is not conjecture because, based on the data, children of mothers who’ve had abortions are at a higher risk to be abused and, as a result, abused children tend to harm animals. Not only that but as the pile of dead bodies attests to, after poking out the eyes of kittens and setting the tails of puppies on fire, some of those mistreated youngsters do go on to become real live serial killers.

If the studies are correct, scheduled checks on the siblings of aborted children will go a long way in saving the lives of tiny animals, which, in the long run, might cut down on impending school shootings, serial killers, and befuddled pundits and politicians inquiring: “Why?”

And so, after yet another school massacre, as the nation searches for answers, instead of blaming the NRA, maybe America should focus on the ultimate child abusers, Planned Parenthood, whose saline, suction and scalpel are the tools used to sculpt and shape the mothers of mass murderers.

Becoming Michelle Obama

Originally posted at American Thinker

In time for Thanksgiving 2018, Michelle Obama’s memoir is due for release.  The book, which should be entitled Enjoying a Bigger Piece of Your Pie, will instead be titled Becoming.

According to the former FLOTUS, the “highly anticipated” tome details what Michelle O. calls a “deeply personal experience.”  And well it should, because she and her world-renowned author husband reached a hefty $65-million two-book deal with Penguin Random House – a formidable amount of wealth that neither Shelly nor Barry is likely to be spreading around anytime soon.

Due to be published in 24 languages, rumor has it that Michelle’s book will have global appeal, which most certainly puts Becoming in the literature category of contenders for the next Nobel Peace Prize.

Speaking of Nobel Peace Prizes, husband Barack, whose half of the book deal is due out in 2019, will take Becoming on an international book tour, where he’ll use his wife’s book as an excuse to promote himself as the ultimate source of all wisdom and truth.

Just for the record, this is not Mrs. Obama’s first crack at authorship.  When the former first lady took up organic gardening on 1,500 square feet of White House lawn, that agricultural exploit resulted in a book titled American Grown: The Story of the White House Kitchen and Gardens Across America.

In a statement from the CEO of Penguin Random House, Markus Dohle, this new book “will stretch the confines of a traditional former first-lady memoir the same way Obama’s official portrait for the Smithsonian did.”  About the anticipated bestseller, Dohle elaborated, “‘Becoming’ is an unusually intimate reckoning from a woman of soul and substance who has steadily defied expectations – and whose story inspires us to do the same.”

Recently, it was Mrs. Obama who observed that in the movie Black Panther, “young people … finally [got to] see superheroes that look like them on the big screen.”  Therefore, if all goes according to plan, the cover jacket portrait of Becoming will accomplish a similar end.

In the meantime, while out and about bashing Donald Trump and lying about first lady Melania handing her a gift she didn’t know what to do with on Inauguration Day, Mrs. Obama has also mentioned that she anticipates the book being “inspirational.”

That’s why, just days after her passive-aggressive husband rebuked anyone on Twitter who disagreed with his position on gun control by publicly extolling everyone who did agree, in a statement about her upcoming autobiography, Mrs. Obama, said, “Writing Becoming has been a deeply personal experience.”

Michelle said penning a memoir “allowed [her] … space to honestly reflect on the unexpected trajectory of [her] life … how a little girl from the South Side of Chicago found her voice and developed the strength to use it to empower others.”

Forgetting that America has heard all that bootstrap-racial oppression malarkey before, of late, Michelle has given glimpses into the biographical vistas Becoming will explore.  Last year, for instance, for the 50,000th time, Michelle reiterated to the Hartford Courant that her “[p]arents weren’t wealthy.”  That was true until Mama Marian Robinson moved into the White House and received reparations in the form of four or more $4-million vacations a year – compliments of the U.S. taxpayer.

Comparing her former home to the $8.1-million mansion she currently occupies in the posh Kalorama section of Washington, D.C., Michelle poured it on when she told the Connecticut news site, “They weren’t fancy folks.  But we had a good childhood, living in a little, bitty apartment.”

Evidently unaware that self-doubt is something all humans grapple with, more recently, in Indianapolis, Michelle threw race in with gender, when she told a mostly female crowd of 12,000 attending a gender equity gathering that women of color tend to grow up with “doubts in their heads.”

Michelle spoke directly to girls in the audience, 300 of whom were Indianapolis Public Schools students who had received free tickets to the event.  After explaining that “women of color doubt themselves,” Michelle reminded women of color, “You’re just as capable, if not more capable than people who doubt you.”

After that, the former first lady intimated that people feared her when she was a kid because of the color of her skin, saying, “The vast majority of kids of color are not in gangs, not doing drugs, they’re not robbing or stealing.  They’re me.  I am the kid you’re afraid of.”

After eight years of “mediocre people … running stuff,” Michelle aptly pointed out something undoubtedly true about both herself and her husband when she confirmed, “There are very mediocre people out there running stuff.  But nobody’s told them they’re not good enough.”

Based on comments such as those, it’s easy to predict that the book is likely to become a platform where an increasingly unbecoming Michelle can rant on about racial prejudiceinequalitysocial injustice, and pay inequity and do it while being paid millions for a book she probably didn’t write.

Compliments of Penguin Random House publishers, Mrs. Obama can falsely insinuate that white Americans view black Americans as gang-banging, drug-addicted, dishonest, and dangerous.  She can also allude to mediocre white men being in positions only because no one informed them “they’re not good enough.”

In addition to “inspiring” insights such as those, the book will likely touch upon Michelle’s time living in that huge White House that “was built by slaves” with the “prisonlike elements” she was forced to endure for two terms.

At any rate, Becoming is unquestionably an appropriate title for this memoir, because while she was the first lady, Michelle became many things.

Take for instance Michelle becoming a world-class organic gardener, a master of the hula hoop, a connoisseur of haute couture, and a backup dancer for Bruno Mars.  During her eight years in office, Michelle was also becoming a dictatorial lunch lady, a pumped-up biceps icon, a jet fuel-guzzling Air Force One traveler, a Hollywood elbow-rubber, a fried fat cake eater, a Target shopper, and an advocate for breastfeeding and bringing home Nigerian girls kidnapped by Boko Haram.

While her husband was “fundamentally transforming” America, Michelle was busily becoming an advocate for redefining marriage and transgender bathrooms and, above all, becoming a public speaker in the style of female members of the old Black Panthers.

Even still, it’s hard to fathom that despite being the recipient of untold blessings, Michelle believes that “after eight years of working really hard for this country, there are still people who [don’t] see [her] for what [she is] because of [her] skin color.”  Based on those and similar delusional sentiments, “bitter clinger” Michelle Obama’s book Becoming will probably be anything but “inspirational.”

Obama’s solution to school shootings: More Alinsky!

Originally posted at American Thinker

Barack Obama has invested too many years and come too close to seeing the “world as it is” change into “the world as it should be” to give up now.  Just because the former president no longer rests his feet on the Resolute Desk in the Oval Office and moved headquarters from Pennsylvania Avenue two miles away to the tony Washington, D.C. neighborhood of Kalorama, that doesn’t mean he’s stopped “fundamentally transforming the United States of America.”

Case in point: the opportunity that has presented itself to the left since the tragic events that took place in Parkland, Florida.

Let’s first admit that had Barack Obama still been in office,the Parkland school shooting would have resulted in a memorial, “Together We Thrive” T-shirts, fake tears, and a stanza or two of “Amazing Grace.”  After the tears dried, the former president would have issued an accusatory reprimand to Americans still clinging to the Second Amendment and, in the company of a diverse gaggle of adorable children, signed yet another executive gun control order.

On the job, Barack Obama was so adept at maneuvering tragic shootings that he’d manage to get all that done before “Fast and Furiously” walking two thousand firearms over the border into Mexico, into the hands of drug cartels, who then handed them off to MS-13 members traveling north to America’s streets.

That’s why, amid all the talk of student marches and nonviolent town hall attendees threatening to burn alive representatives of the NRA, Barack just could no longer contain his glee.  In fact, feeling all feisty and exhilarated by the enthusiasm, the former president took a break from organizing the #MENEXT social media underground movement and cryptically spoke on behalf of snatching the guns out of the hands of bitter clingers.

Hearkening back to his time furthering Saul Alinsky’s Rules for Radicals tried-and-true philosophy, Obama resurrected words related to the Lucifer-loving socialist’s vision concerning “the whys and wherefores of life as it is lived, the world as it is, not our wished-for fantasy of the world as it should be.”

After the shooting, Obama resurfaced on Twitter and seized upon an opportunity to further the progressive agenda the only way he knows how, which is to community-organize the youth.  Barack Obama had this to say about the chaos surrounding the gun debate in America:

That’s right: the victims were barely buried when the former president reappeared and quoted words that appear in speeches Obama has given as he’s attempted to community-organize the planet into Saul Alinsky’s “world as it should be.”

Barack is not alone.  Michelle debuted on the world stage using the “world as it should be” language in her speech at the 2008 DNC Convention.  Over the years, the former first lady continued using similar references, especially during college commencement speeches.

Bill Ayers, Obama’s “Weather Underground Chicago flag-stomping buddy, quoted Alinsky in a debate with Dinesh D’Souza at Dartmouth in 2014.  During the discussion, Ayers pontificated that we are “standing right next to the world as such, a world that could be or a world that should be and committing ourselves to work toward that better world.”

Then there’s Barack, who even used the “world as it should be” adage while lecturing Hebrew college students in March of 2013.  In Jerusalem, Obama paraphrased from the Alinsky Bible when he said Israel “has the wisdom to see the world as it is, but also the courage to see the world as it should be.”

And so, after being out of office for more than a year, Obama has reared his activist head to goad the youth to “get in faces” and push for a change to a document Obama once admitted he felt was a “charter” that bestows “negative liberties.”  After all, having sown into the gullible, via liberal education, who better than Barack Obama to cash in on that investment by convincing dumbed down youngsters, scared of being shot, that they alone “have helped lead our great movements”?

Apparently, Obama chose to speak out now because, according to his tweet, he’s “inspired.”

The former president wrote, “How inspiring to see it again in so many smart, fearless students standing up for their right to be safe.”  Sorry, but sentiments like that are a bit disingenuous coming from a politician who denied the “right to be safe” to 8 million babies aborted during the eight years he was in office.

After patronizing “smart, fearless” students who read off scripts at a CNN town hall, bombastic Barack exposed his Alinsky roots when he applauded “marching and organizing [to] … remake the world as it should be.”  This means the world the way Saul Alinsky saw it, the way Barack Obama sees it, and the way the progressive gun-grabbing, Second Amendment-hating left sees it.

The Hopi elder-quoting agitator, who was referring to himself when he said, “We are the one’s we’ve been waiting for,” proceeded to stroke the egos of adolescent activists, tweeting, “We’ve been waiting for you.”  Then he wrote, “And we’ve got your backs,” which are the words Michelle used during the 2012 DNC convention and what she told Jason Collins when she congratulated him for being the first openly gay NBA player on Twitter.

And so, from the bunker where he plots his next move, Barack Obama must recognize the advantages of using social media to convey directives to those he hopes will continue “fundamentally transforming” the “world as it is” into the world his mentor Saul Alinsky felt it should be.


Is Joy Behar sure that hearing God’s voice means you’re crazy?

It’s beginning to be glaringly apparent that those on the left cannot recognize the absurd double standard that exists in almost everything they say.  On one day, a specific kind of logic applies to one scenario.  Then, the next day, those same people mock the logic that was offered as gospel the day before.

Take for instance the liberal notion that stricter gun laws prevent mass shootings.  If that’s true, then why do the same individuals who demand restrictions on gun ownership also claim that if access to abortion is limited, women looking to terminate a pregnancy will find a way to kill babies in back alleys?

Liberals refute themselves when discussing people, too.  Those on the left will vilify a political figure they disagree with for behavior that one month prior they celebrated in one of their own.

A recent example of this kind of hypocrisy took place on The View, when one of the president’s most vocal critics decided that Mike Pence is “mentally ill.”  It happened during a “hot topics” segment, when a tape of disgruntled ex-Trump White House staffer and former Apprentice star Omarosa Manigault Newman aired dirty laundry in the company of her Celebrity Big Brother competitors.

A supposed lover of Jesus, Omarosa counseled the group:

As bad as you think Trump is, you would be worried about Pence.  Everyone that is wishing for impeachment might want to reconsider their life.  I am Christian, I love Jesus, but [Pence] thinks Jesus tells him to say things.

In the clip, Ms. Newman referred to Pence as “extreme,” which, ironically, is the kind of disciple Scripture demands.

Nevertheless, upon hearing Omarosa’s critical remarks, The View crew, who regularly pan Trump, responded to Omarosa’s fodder like a pack of salivating wolves.

Co-host and self-described “faithful … Catholic” Sunny Hostin expressed negative feelings about Pence because, Hostin said, when the vice president was governor of Indiana, he was a “hated figure” who tended to put a “religious veneer” on things.  No one knows whether Mr. Pence ever claimed to speak in tongues, but that didn’t stop Hostin from pontificating, “I don’t know that I want my vice president, you know, speaking in tongues and having Jesus speak to him.”

Although Hillary Clinton regularly “communed” with Eleanor Roosevelt, the female panel agreed that having a leader who thinks he hears Jesus’s voice is a problem.  Apparently, that consensus didn’t go far enough; Joy Behar had to take things a step farther when she offered up a psychiatric diagnosis based on Pence hearing Jesus’s voice, which Behar said is synonymous with “mental illness.”

The View co-host told the other ladies, “It’s one thing to talk to Jesus.  It’s another thing when Jesus talks to you.  That’s called mental illness if I’m not correct, hearing voices.”

Behar couldn’t leave it at that.  Instead, she continued by making a sarcastic reference to the wisdom Pence exercises concerning male-female relationships in the age of #MeToo.  Joy, who was photographed once grabbing the late Robin Williams’s crotch, continued by asking, “My question is, can he talk to Mary Magdalene without his wife in the room?”

Joy Behar’s remark was not only discriminatory, but perplexing, especially coming from a Muslim apologist.

Why?  Because in November of 2017, after writing the book The Great Gasbag: An A-to-Z Guide to Surviving Trump World, while appearing on MSNBC’s Morning Joe, Behar said she penned the survival guide “Because [she was] being told by God to save this country.”

In other words, just three months before calling Mike Pence “mentally ill,” Joy Behar admitted that God spoke to her and that she wrote a book in response to conversation she had with the Almighty.  Behar might not have realized it, but by calling Pence “mentally ill,” she tacitly admitted that her book about the “Great Gasbag” was inspired by a questionable psychological state.

Then again, let’s remember that based on the political expediency of what is said, liberals do tend to vacillate between condemnation and adoration.  Leftist shills like Joy Behar practice political pragmatism at its finest.

Nevertheless, by labeling Pence psychologically unfit, Behar may have talked herself into apolitical corner, especially if The View airs the clip of Oprah’s 60 Minutes Overtime interview on CBS’s This Morning.

In that conversation, Oprah, a woman Joy Behar feels is capable of beating the “Great Gasbag,” is asked by CBS senior producer Ann Silvio if the rumors of a presidential bid are true.  During the sit-down, Oprah revealed that after the Cecil B. de Mille Award speech she gave at the 75th Annual Golden Globe Awards, “wealthy men began calling to tell her to run and that they’d raise $1-billion to help her campaign.”

Winfrey told the curious correspondent, “I think that when you have that many people whose opinions you value coming at you, it’s worthy of thinking about.”

Then the billionaire mogul uttered something Joy Behar needs to think about before reaffirming her desire to have the Big O “run the world.”  Oprah clarified that despite all the offers from affluent men, “[she’s] never looked outside for other people to tell [her] when [she] should be making a move.”

Unsure whether a run for the White House is the direction she should take, Winfrey matter-of-factly asked Silvio, “If God actually wanted me to run, wouldn’t God kind of tell me?”  Then the former talk show host announced, “And I haven’t heard that.”

Not to burst the “Oprah-4-President” bubble, but based on Joy’s assessment of Pence, doesn’t the great black hope for foolproof victory over Donald Trump measure up to Behar’s “mentally ill” yardstick?

With that in mind, Jesus is probably still whispering political directives into the View co-host’s ear.  The dutiful follower that she is, Joy obeys, and “saves this country,” by continuing to embody the liberal mindset, whose inconsistent statements ensure that the “Great Gasbag” and his “mentally ill” vice president will run America for another seven years.
