Hillary’s ‘Everyday Iowans’ Were Democrat Activists

From the UK’s Daily Mail:

Campaign staff DROVE ‘ordinary’ Iowans to Hillary’s first campaign stop – including health care ‘lobbyist in training’ who was an Obama campaign intern and Biden chauffeur

By David Martosko | 16 April 2015

Des Moines, Iowa – Hillary Clinton’s astroturf candidacy is in full swing in Iowa. Her Tuesday morning visit to a coffee shop in LeClaire, Iowa was staged from beginning to end, according to Austin Bird, one of the men pictured sitting at the table with Mrs. Clinton.

Bird told Daily Mail Online that campaign staffer Troy Price called and asked him and two other young people to meet him Tuesday morning at a restaurant in Davenport, a nearby city. Price then drove them to the coffee house to meet Clinton after vetting them for about a half-hour.

Hillary Backs ‘Protests’ For Higher Fast Food Wages

From an irony-proof Huffington Post:

Hillary Clinton Backs Worker Protests For Higher Minimum Wage

By Sam Levine | April 15, 2015

Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton tweeted her support of low-wage workers who demonstrated across the country and demanded a $15 minimum wage on Wednesday. Clinton, who has highlighted income inequality as an issue she wants to focus on since launching her presidential campaign on Sunday, said that workers shouldn’t have to march in the streets for living wages. 

Hillary Clinton [tweeted]: "Every American deserves a fair shot at success. Fast food & child care workers shouldn’t have to march in streets for living wages. -H"

Maybe if they got better tips they wouldn’t be in such bad shape.

The widespread demonstrations on Wednesday for higher wages were part of an effort to turn the campaign for higher wages into a larger social justice movement.

Hillary Has History Of Stiffing Waitresses And Stylists

From the Daily Caller:

Hillary Has A History Of Stiffing Waitresses, Hair Stylists

By Chuck Ross | April 15, 2015

… A deeper look at the former First Lady’s tipping habits shows she does have a history of stiffing people who depend on tips to make ends meet. From her days as First Lady to her Senate candidacy to her first run for president, Clinton made news for failing to compensate a Florida hair stylist and two waitresses…

[On] Feb. 8, 2000… Clinton, then a candidate for the U.S. Senate, dined at the Village House Restaurant in Albion, N.Y. Clinton ate two servings of scrambled eggs, home fries, and rye toast, according to a New York Post article at the time. That hearty breakfast all came at no cost to Clinton as the restaurant’s owner, Alex Mitrousis, covered her $6 tab.

(Non) Shocker: Hillary Didn’t Leave A Tip At Chipotle’s

From Bloomberg:

Chipotle Manager: Hillary Clinton Didn’t Leave Anything in Tip Jar

David Knowles | Apr 15, 2015

One of the great political mysteries of the early 2016 presidential campaign has been solved: Hillary Clinton did not leave a tip at the Chipotle restaurant she visited during her road trip to Iowa on Sunday.

"Her bill was $20 and some change, and they paid with $21 and left" without putting anything in a tip jar on the counter, Charles Wright, the manager at the Maumee, Ohio, Chipotle restaurant told Bloomberg.

In the earlier version of this article, Bloomberg identified Mr. Wright as a Republican. Apparently, to indicate that he might be making this up out of an animus against Hillary.

They have since removed that line from their piece, presumably because he isn’t a Republican.

Experts Claim That Cuba Is Still Sponsoring Terrorism

From the Daily Caller:

Experts: Cuba Still Sponsoring Terrorism

Kerry Picket | 04/15/2015
Cuba is still involved in state-sponsored terrorism, says Jaime Suchlicki, Director of the Institute for Cuban and Cuban-American Studies (ICCAS) at the University of Miami.

We suspect that Mr. Suchlicki is one of those anti-Castro ‘dissidents’ now living in the US who the ‘Cuban Five’ were sent to kill, or at least intimidate into silence via pipe bombs and other subtle threats. So he’s probably a little prejudiced.

Cuba’s removal from the state sponsor terrorist list appears at odds with disturbing evidence collected for a report on Cuba’s terrorist ties posted by ICCAS last month.

“I think this is an unwarranted concession. Number one—Cuba is still involved with terrorism and is still harboring American and Spanish terrorists in Cuba—is still involved with Hamas and Hezbollah,” Suchlicki told the Daily Caller.

Rouhani: Iran Is Not Negotiating Deal With Congress

From the Agence France Presse:

Iran not negotiating nuclear deal with US Congress: Rouhani

April 15, 2015

Tehran (AFP) – Iranian President Hassan Rouhani downplayed Wednesday the threat of US congressional action against an eventual nuclear deal, saying Tehran is not negotiating with the lawmakers but with world powers.

The US Senate foreign relations committee gave the green light Tuesday to a bill that would give Congress the right to review a possible final agreement on the Iranian nuclear issue. The bill, expected to be adopted by Congress, would oblige President Barack Obama to give lawmakers 60 days to examine, and possibly block, a final deal…

The review period has been changed to 30 days, AFP. Try to keep up. (It’s truly pathetic how careless the news media are about even the most important details.) And this so-called ‘review’ will only begin after the deal is ‘clinched’ in June.

2 NYPD Assaulted During Protest Over Police Violence

From the irony-proof CBS NYC affiliate, WINS:

Source: 2 NYPD Officers Assaulted During Protest Over Police Violence

April 14, 2015

NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) — Sources said two officers were injured Tuesday night, as police clashed with demonstrators on the streets of Brooklyn in a protest against police-related deaths and violent incidents throughout the country.

Temperatures are finally warming up. And Mr. Soros is still paying ‘protesters.’ In fact, if it wasn’t a protest against the police, it would be an Occupy Wall Street protest against the Wall Street fat cats — like Soros.

As CBS2’s Valerie Castro reported, the demonstrators started in Union Square and marched down Broadway before targeting the Brooklyn Bridge, 1010 WINS reported. They blocked traffic on the bridge in an effort to bring awareness to what they called police brutality…

Gee, that’s the same location where a peace-loving CUNY professor (and poet) and other police brutality protesters (allegedly) tried to kill a couple of police officers by dropping heavy metal trash cans on top of them from a great height.

Top Google Searches For Hillary, Rubio: Age, Ethnicity

From Vocativ:

Top Google Searches For Hillary Clinton And Marco Rubio

By Mike Spies | April 14, 2015

What was the voting public most interested in about Hillary Clinton and Marco Rubio after they formally announced their presidential bids? Their ages – according to an analysis of the top Google queries about both candidates.

Whoops. That’s not good news for (don’t call her) Hillary. However, it does bode well for Mr. Rubio, since in recent years at least, the younger candidate have usually won the Presidency. (Reagan being one obvious exception.)

Google on Monday published the top-five search queries about Clinton and Rubio after their big announcements Sunday and Monday. Vocativ asked Google for a longer list of the most popular searches for both candidates.

Hispanics Will Vote For Socialism, Not Last Names

From the Latin American Herald Tribune:

Latinos Will Vote for Programs, Not for Hispanic Last Names

April 15, 2015

MIAMI – Latinos who go to the polls in the 2016 elections will cast their ballots for programs and proposals that will help them, not for Hispanic last names, political experts told Efe on Tuesday…

‘Programs’ being code for more socialism, that is, more welfare and government dependence. Which is something we have been saying until we are blue in the face. And which is exactly why it is so important for the Democrats to import as many Hispanics as possible. (For the record, EFE is a Spanish, that is, actually located in Spain, news agency.)

Luis Fleischman, professor of sociology and political science at Florida Atlantic University, said… that many Latinos will vote for the first time and will do it with an awareness of growing public approval of comprehensive immigration reform, the only long-term solution for millions of undocumented immigrants living in this country, but who have faced furious opposition from the Republican Party…

Short version = unless you are pro-amnesty, Hispanics won’t vote for you.

Mika: Rubio Just ‘A Little Boy’ Compared To Hillary

From NewsBusters:

Mika Mocks Rubio: ‘That’s a Little Boy’ Compared to Hillary

By Mark Finkelstein | April 14, 2015

Can you imagine if in 2008 a prominent conservative media member had said that Barack Obama looked like a "little boy" compared to John McCain?  The echoes of liberal outrage would still be resounding today.

Especially since it is usually considered to be a crime against humanity to call any minority ‘boy.’ But apparently all Republican Hispanics are actually ‘white Hispanics.’ So they don’t count.

But there was Mika Brzezinski on today’s Morning Joe saying of Marco Rubio "that’s a little boy." Mika made the invidious comparison to Hillary’s service as senator, First Lady and Secretary of State…

Invidious to Hillary, perhaps. Since Marco Rubio has not failed at everything he has touched as she has.

Hard To Sell Hillary As Regular, Cuz She’s Awesome

From a shamelessly fawning Chris Cillizza, via the Washington Post:

The tremendously difficult task of selling Hillary Clinton as a regular person

By Chris Cillizza | April 13, 2015

The now-day-old Hillary Clinton presidential campaign wants you to know one very important thing about the former First Lady, New York Senator and Secretary of State: She’s just like you! …

When obviously she isn’t anything like us. She is rich and famous. And, most important, a Democrat celebrity!

Here’s the problem: Hillary Clinton hasn’t been "us" for, well, almost her entire adult life. She was featured in Life magazine in 1969 after making history as the first student to give a commencement address at Wellesley College.

Only because the school’s dean was strong-armed by her lesbian roommate.

From the Independent Journal Review:

Hillary Visits College to See ‘Everyday Iowans,’ Students Get Locked In Their Classrooms

By Benny Johnson | April 14, 2015

Hillary Van Gets 16 MPG, Has Bed, TV, Much Leather

From the Weekly Standard:

Inside Hillary’s ‘Very Luxurious’ Van: A Bed, TV, and Lots of Leather

By DANIEL HALPER | April 14, 2015

Hillary Clinton’s choice of transportation? A Secret Service owned and operated van. The van, however, isn’t an everyday minivan or even a full-sized van. It’s a luxury vehicle outfitted with top amenities.

Specifically: It’s a limited edition Chevrolet Express van up-fitted with a Limited SE packed by Explorer Vans company "It’s very luxurious," a salesman who helped deliver this vehicle tells me on the phone. "I’d rank it up there with the best."

The model being used to chauffeur Hillary Clinton around has a gray leather interior, heated seat, a 29 inch Samsung television, and a Blu-ray DVD player… Oh, and there’s a bed.

Ah, So: Chipotle CEO Spoke At Clinton Event Last Year

From the Weekly Standard:

Chipotle CEO Spoke at Clinton Global Initiative Event Last Year

BY DANIEL HALPER | Apr 14, 2015

En route to Iowa, Hillary Clinton’s motorcade pulled over yesterday at an Ohio Chipotle for lunch… [I]nterestingly, Chipotle has been tied to one of her family’s outfits, the Clinton Global Initiative.

So it all becomes clear. After all, there are no accidents in Clintonian politics. Everything always goes back to cold hard cash and ‘pay to play.’ (For the record, the Clinton Global Initiative just a subset of the Clinton Family Foundation. Formerly known as the William Jefferson Blythe Clinton Foundation.)

Last year, Chipotle’s co-CEO Monty Moran spoke at the annual event in New York City. He shared a stage with other business leaders (including possible Republican presidential candidate Carly Fiorina) and even Bill Clinton himself.

Hillary Refused To Answer Query About Email In 2012

From the New York Times, of all places:

Hillary Clinton Was Asked About Email 2 Years Ago

By MICHAEL S. SCHMIDT | April 14, 2015

WASHINGTON — Hillary Rodham Clinton was directly asked by congressional investigators in a December 2012 letter whether she had used a private email account while serving as secretary of state, according to letters obtained by The New York Times. But Mrs. Clinton did not reply to the letter.

And when the State Department answered in March 2013, nearly two months after she left office, it ignored the question and provided no response.

That’s our Hillary. That’s our State Department. Or, rather, Obama’s.

The query was posed to Mrs. Clinton in a Dec. 13, 2012, letter from Representative Darrell Issa, the Republican chairman of the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform.
