Medusa returns

Lest we forget. Fellow Swampers and those remaining dry, it was just a few cycles around the sun, that your faithful alligator, along with many others, were faced with a nightmare scenario: Medusa, aka Hildebeast, aka Her, aka Sociopath par excellance, competing for control of Amerikan Corporacy with Herr Drumpf. Lesser of two evils. Oy veh! What a choice: will you take hemlock or arsenic, Socrates?

Wadda choice: between a bombastic self-promoter and a bombastic self-promoter. El Trumpo's wealth has been open to scrutiny by the Müller Squad (not to be confused with the Tlaib squad). The amount of hidden wealth from CGI and other Clinton front organizations is really unknown. I would imagine that in it is in the billions. How much did she and Bubba rake in from Haiti--never mind.

Statement of bias: all current candidates for president are less qualified by temperament and experience than Tulsi Gabbard. I write this every time. Because I believe this to be true. The difference between me and the main stream press is that I openly admit to bias.

In support of my thesis I offer two youtube broadcasts, both which state that HRC, HER, the Hildebeast, the Evil Queen, in fact Snake-headed Queen is running for President again. Da, tovarich, you got that right. Emerging from the shadows of Maidan, the major proponents for which were JoJo and Victoria Nuland, plus an admirable supporting cast, did a number on Ukraine.

But I digress.

Why is HER running again? Why is the sky blue?

Because...Just because.

There are two reasons basically:
1. Unbridled egotism
2. Criminal culpability

Unbridled egotism

For a sociopath, ego always is primary. Other people don't exist--at least not in a way which gives the sociopath either the help (promotion) or the hindrance (opposition) the sociopath responds to. Me, me, me. It's all about me. Copernicus was wrong: the universe revolves around me, me, me. What a foolish Italian, this Copernicus fellow, who did not anticipate that the true center of the Universe was Hillary Rodent Clinton. Maybe a degree from Harvard Law would have helped this poor benighted Renaissance scholar to really understand the magnificence of HRC.

For those unaware, the Evil Queen has been once again entered into the Guinness book of world records. Her previous prestigious award was for lying 13 minutes continuously, without breaking as sweat.

Now she is in the record book for having 51 reasons why she lost the 2016 election--none of which included her own fault. All U.S. government agencies are included in her rationale, as well as half of the electorate who were despicable deplorable smelly Walmart shoppers.

D'ya think she might harbor "I'm smarter than you" mentality. This concept can also be reconfigured to "What you think doesn't manner, because you don't matter."

So, people, reptiles and other critters, you will never be smarter than H. Rodent. Clinton.

Criminal culpability

Pick a crime, any crime. HRC likely has broken it. Perjury. Destruction of government files. Obstruction of justice (whatever that currently means). Bribery. Money laundering (CFI etc.), Abetting human trafficking. Blackmail (vis-a-vis Jeffrey Epstein).

By becoming a certified presidential candidate, HRC desires to use the Biden defense--"you can't touch me because I'm a candidate". Guilt: according to H. Rodent Clinton is irrelevant. This will be a frequent theme in the MSM. Look how hard the MSM is either trying to ignore or trivialize the ByeDone Ukrainian and China messes. Every bit of this nihilistic ardor favoring the Evil Queen will be unveiled in full obfuscationist mention. What? She didn't do anything wrong. So what about pay-for-play in DOS? So what if 50+ lobbyists and foreign countries contribute to CFI and then, amazingly, get interviews with HRC and more than half get arms deals (and possibly foreign aid)? Pure coincidence, Horace and Hortense Householder.

Notice how vehemently some of the MSM have been protesting the mere allegation that China Joe used his influence to extract a quid pro quo from Poroshenko. This opposition occurs despite Joe's CFR appearance in which he bragged about getting Shokin fired from investigating his son.

So here is why HRC will run for 2020:
1. Her ego knows no bounds just as her conscience knows no culpability or shame.
2. She hopes to shield herself from legal jeopardy by becoming an official candidate.

Tim Pool offers a reasonable analysis supporting my theory. Lots of folks here ar c99 feel Tim is sold out to conservatives. Ain't so. He is left of center, a political place I also inhabit.

Here is a rambling video (20:52) by H. A. Goodman, former Berniecrat but now a pro-Trumper. H.A. predicted Medusa would lose in 2016--in late 2015, well ahead of Rachel Madcow's tearful pronouncement that Drumpf prevailed. Some of us take perverse pleasure in watching her 2016 meltdown when the Donald captured the throne.

For you Madcow fans, Roswell Rachel is now positing that--wait for it:

Russia is behind Ukrainegate, forcing the Chito-in-Chief to investigate Ukraine.

because he's being impeached. I reminded her that when "Bill was going through it he kept lobbing bombs into Iraq and people said that he was wagging the dawg. Glass houses, Hillary."

Trump said she should run again and she says, "don't tempt me."

less self-dealing than Biden

Sure if you overlook her pay for play during her grifting tenure as SOS. Note that she and Bill have closed part of their foundation cuz no one is giving them money since she ain't president and can't pay them back with favors.

This just shows me that we are f'ck'd with the options we get to choose from.

She is in third place on the polls.

@snoopydawg is a direct correlate to the heat she is beginning to feel. She is trying to dispel the heat from the burning throne upon which she sits by hypertweeting. Self-defense is her reason for running--and does anyone think that Medusa won't get support from every superdelegate?

Barr-Durham is going to kick the shit out of the Dems--if Trump so wishes--for their years of corruption. Want to know about governmental corruption? Check out George Webb. Red and Blue fingers all over the Green Goddess (that's money, honey).

@Alligator Ed

This is it, the day before the Big Day, the one in which we elect our first woman president. It’s been funny seeing the political personalities in play. Conservatives are forever confident, strutting around as if Donald Trump has this thing in the bag, in defiance of all possible empiric evidence to the contrary. Meanwhile, liberals are flipping the f’ out, paranoid about losing tomorrow, again in violation of all empirical evidence. Fact is, it’s not even close. Our very own Drew Linzer, the most accurate forecaster the last two cycles, has his projection: Clinton 323, Trump 215.

We got this. Let’s close strong.

My Green protest vote is reviled by Democrats as "voting for Trump", so I might as well show them what voting for Trump is. Same if ByeDone runs, unless Bernie/Tulsi runs third party. Ditto Warren but I doubt if she has the guts.

I want to see this corrupt Democratic Party dead dead dead with a stake through Her heart.
I'm not demanding a Socialist Party. I'm just demanding some party that supports the 99% against the 1% be it radical or incrementalist.

Many here complain about Bernie. I 5tink the best thing he is doing is running a major campaign without deep pocket money. Any new party must take that as a defining rule.

When did we start granting diplomatic immunity for Presidential candidates?

By becoming a certified presidential candidate, HRC desires to use the Biden defense--"you can't touch me because I'm a candidate".

Another effect of impeachment: not only does it take down Her biggest establishment rival, it also normalizes a phony legal immunity argument that has no actual basis in law.

Then, as the silly season started, I second guessed myself. Now, it looks like the pieces are falling into place. Biden has plateaued and is probably going down with the impeachment garbage. Kamala is done. Bernie has a chink in his armor (and HER could barely contain HER excitement.) Warren is under control (probably already accepted the VP slot she wasn’t offered in 2016.) And the rest? As if...

Now all they have to do is keep everyone, including Trump, busy with impeachment. Don’t actually remove him from office, I doubt HER wants to run against Pence, but weaken him up. Then HER can waltz in to take what is rightfully HERs, right?

I wish I were joking, but this seems like the plan now. Oy.

As to "her", the Dems may try to force Hillary on us as the nominee. They may even succeed in doing so. But she will never become POTUS. To borrow a phrase from "herself", it's never, ever going to happen.

I remember, soon after the 2016 election, there was a new user who posted here at C99 a couple of times. He/she kept asking what the Dems needed to do to get people to like Hillary better.

Commenters here, including moi, pointed out that the American public doesn't just dislike Hillary. A large percentage have a deep hatred of her. In one of my comments, I said that many voters hate her so much, they would get up off their deathbed and crawl 5 miles naked in a blizzard to vote against her.

The guy refused to listen. His angry response was "she's the nominee, and that's the way it is."

I don't know if he was trying to groom us for 2020, but good god, they apparently haven't learned a damned thing. It's like willful blindness. It's political malpractice. How can you win elections if you don't understand and accept your candidate's shortcomings?

The answer is, the Dem establishment doesn't want to win elections. They want to rig and steal elections, while manipulating our minds and emotions so that we'll go along with it.

I seriously believe that if the DNC succeeds in rigging the 2020 nomination, it will be the last thing they ever do.

It's like they're standing in the middle of the railroad track. A freight train is bearing down on them at 60 mph, whistle blowing. The ground is shaking. And they refuse to hear it, refuse to see it, refuse to look and listen. They want what they want, and that's all that exists for them. They are not in touch with reality.

Of course, HerHeinous won't run in any primaries. That would be both unwise and beneath Her.

More likely if it's in the offing, she will wait until the second ballot where all the superdelegates she owns will dutifully support Her. That way she really will be coronated as the nominee befitting of the pomp and splendour she deserves

It's obvious the DNC is packing the field in order to force a second vote at the convention. It remains to be seen what the superdelegates have in mind. Maybe there's some major in-fighting going on (such as Obama faction vs. Clinton faction, for example), and they'd up with a brokered convention.

One thing though. Most of the front runners are the high $ donor class favorites. HER is the all time dependable tried and true candidate coming through for them (except for winning). I have been reading Thomas Edsall https://www.nytimes.com/2019/10/09/opinion/democrats-2020.html?action=cl... and this keeps coming up, or some variation noting *progressive* democrats are....

"Much more likely to be rich, highly educated — and white. They are nearly twice as likely as the average to make more than $100,000 a year. They are nearly three times as likely to have a postgraduate degree. And while 12 percent of the overall sample in the study is African-American, only 3 percent of progressive activists are."

The tech industry is well represented, and these tech giants subscribe to ID politics, women's right to choose, immigration, discrimination, etc. Most of the middle class concerns, jobs, wages, unionization, health care, education not so much. They're very enthusiastic about "liberal" causes if it doesn't cost them anything. With either Trump or Clinton, they win. Sometimes I wonder if the big dem donors are really conservatives setting a losing dem agenda for a win/win for them.

Hillary says that she can beat Trump next time. Kos gave Hillary hell today for fundraising with rich classholes in California rather than going to the states she lost. The only reason she won the primary was because she cheated. Then she messed with the republican primary by getting the media to only cover Trump and ignore the other candidates. But he comes from a right wing place so take it with a grain of salt.

Yes Trump ran on bringing the troops home, but so far he hasn't. One thing his supporters don't talk about is how he refuses to end the Yemen war. In fact he would or did veto the bill that said he had to.

Some of the bookies might actually hope Bernie Sanders wins (at least the primary). So if he wins a bigger pay day for those that bet on him with the odds being higher against him.

The bet payouts for some must have been huge for those that bet Trump would beat Clinton for the Whitehouse in 2016, with the official odds that heavily favored Clinton.

The base of the democratic party is not progressive. While I believe Bernie was cheated, I am not sure he would have won an honest primary.

The current aim of the primaries will be to defeat Bernie first and foremost. Cheating will start from day 1.

Next, a establishment friendly candidate must be chosen. Sort of a tie between Warren and Biden. But if a stand off happens, the base could easily turn to Hillary.

Among the base of the party Hillary is the sainted holy martyr done wrong by evil Putin.
