    Former Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton was booed by a sizable crowd outside Swansea University in Wales, where she was awarded an honorary doctorate on Oct. 14 (video below). At one point, some in the crowd repeatedly screamed "fascist" at Clinton as she made her way out of her vehicle and into the university, reports the Independent Journal Review. The university, which renamed its law school Hillary Rodham Clinton School of Law, was presenting the award to Clinton for her work on behalf of families and children. Clinton spoke of the effect Brexit was having on children in the U.K. during...

    Hillary Clinton appeared to be dupped into saying "vote for Hillary in 2020" during an interview Friday on BBC One. The failed 2016 presidential candidate made an appearance on "The One Show" and was speaking to hosts Alex Jones and Amol Rajan about her election memoir What Happened. At one point during the interview, Jones — not Alex Jones of Infowars — had Clinton repeat after her in another language. After doing so, Jones revealed Clinton had said "vote for Hillary in 2020" in Welsh. After bursting out into laughter and giving Jones a high-five, Clinton said, "Oh, I plead...

    Hillary Clinton’s book is a pensive exercise to make sense of something Americans haven’t been able to understand either — why she lost the presidential race Book: What Happened Author: Hillary Rodham Clinton Publication: Simon & Schuster Pages: 464 Price: Rs 699 For many, in America and around the world, almost as astonishing as the fact that Donald Trump is now occupying the White House, is the fact that Hillary Clinton is not. Mrs Clinton herself does not quite understand that deplorable fact. Her memoirs are a thoughtful and candid attempt to understand what to her is still almost incomprehensible....

    As the sun rose this Friday morning in October 2017, Fox & Friends was interviewing author Ed Klein on failed 2016 presidential candidate Hillary Clinton and her relationship with husband Bill. Klein — whose first book on the Clintons was so awful it made the New York Post’s John Podhoretz want to “drive stakes through [his] eyes so [he] wouldn’t have to suffer through another word” — discussed his latest report that Bill hated Hillary’s post-election book “What Happened”.Klein detailed the Clintons’ disagreements during the presidential campaign, including reports that Bill wanted Hillary to spend time in Rust Belt states,...

    Globalists who work to lead the masses away from their Creator are a dime a dozen It must be getting closer to Advent. Dan Brown of “Da Vinci Code” FICTION fame is back. Harvard “symbology” professor Robert Langdon, the protagonist of “The Da Vinci Code”, a work of fiction that questioned the history of Christianity, is back in Brown’s newly published novel, ‘Origin’, this time pushing the meme: “Our need for that exterior god, that sits up there and judges us ... will diminish and eventually disappear.”

    Bill and Hillary Clinton are not speaking to each other after a blazing argument over her election book, it has been claimed. The former President threw a manuscript in the trash after Hillary ignored his advice not to publish it, according to author Ed Klein. Bill had red-penned the book in an attempt to improve it, a friend allegedly told Klein, but flew into a rage when Hillary refused to read any of his notes. According to Page Six, the friend said: "He told her the book made her look bewildered, angry and confused, and that those were poor qualities...

    Edward Klein, who has written several books about the Clintons and Kennedys, has a hotly anticipated book, “All Out War: The Plot to Destroy Trump,” out Oct. 30. In the meantime, he reveals that Hillary Clinton’s finger-pointing book, “What Happened” — which is chock-full of excuses for her shocking election loss to Donald Trump — may be a best seller, but Bill Clinton tossed his copy in the trash can and is heartsick over his wife’s current blame-game book tour. “Before Hillary sent the manuscript to her publisher, she gave it to Bill to read, and he made major changes...

    Amazon.com Inc.'s decision to establish a second corporate headquarters is going to make some North American city very happy once the online retail behemoth announces its choice next year. But it will likely be bad news for Seattle, Amazon's longtime home, which has benefited enormously from the company's rapid growth. Analysts predict that much of the company's future expansion will be in its second headquarters. "It had generally been assumed that [Amazon's] growth would be concentrated in Seattle," said Dave Bragg, an analyst with Green Street Advisors, a real-estate research firm. "That now needs to be adjusted." Green Street, in...

    Hollywood big shot Harvey Weinstein took a hint from his good friend Hillary Clinton and blamed a vast right-wing conspiracy for a recent New York Times article detailing his long history as a serial sexual harasser. Hurt that his generous donations to Democratic politicians and payoffs to his victims weren’t sufficient to suppress this information, the bloated movie mogul lamented that his reputation may have been “irretrievably damaged.” “The unfairness of it all just boggles my mind,” Weinstein admitted. “Others have done far worse and come away smelling like a rose. Bill Clinton raped a woman and committed perjury, but...

    FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE Our Education Establishment, no matter how many millions of children end up illiterate, is able to suppress debate and elude public outrage. Critics are typically ignored. After all, if they disagree with the Education Establishment, they must be wrong. “So it was a strange surprise,” Bruce Price explains, “ when education reformers in Italy contacted me for help in their fight against sight-words in public schools. Must be a mistake, I thought. American experts constantly stress that a phonetic language would never need sight-words. Oh, they wail, if only English were perfectly phonetic like Italian!! Here’s a...

  • The Case for Colonialism: Don’t retract, rebut…. and censure those who seek to silence.

    In a recent paper entitled “The case for colonialism” Bruce Gilley argued that “Western colonialism was, as a general rule, both objectively beneficial and subjectively legitimate in most of the places where it was found”. Gilley then argued that colonialism should be “recovered” “by reclaiming colonial modes of governance, by recolonizing some areas, and by creating new Western colonies from scratch”. These are highly controversial claims. But it is unlikely that Gilley anticipated the antipathy with which they would be received. Two petitions were initiated—gathering over 15,000 signatures between them—demanding that the journal in which the paper was published (Third...

    SPRINGFIELD, Mass. (AP) — The mayor of Dr. Seuss' hometown fired back at a school librarian on Thursday who called the children's author's books "racist" and "cliche" in rejecting a donation of them from Melania Trump. The comments of Cambridge Public Schools librarian Liz Phipps Soeiro were "political correctness at its worst," Springfield, Massachusetts, Mayor Domenic Sarno said in a statement. "One fish, two fish, red fish, blue fish, I think her comments stink and are ridiculous towards our beloved Dr. Seuss," he said. Dr. Seuss, whose real name is Theodor Geisel, was born and raised in Springfield.....

    Horton hears a hypocrite. The Massachusetts elementary school librarian who rejected Dr. Seuss books donated by First Lady Melania Trump because the publication’s artwork contained “racist mockery,” was previously photographed dressed as the Cat in the Hat and holding a “Green Eggs and Ham” themed breakfast. Liz Phipps Soeiro was busted Friday by Twitter users after she snubbed the First Lady’s donation to the Cambridgeport Elementary School. Soeiro wrote in a letter to Trump that the school could not accept the books, which included: “The Cat in the Hat,” “Oh, the Places You’ll Go!” and “Green Eggs and Ham.” (TWEET-AT-LINK)...

    Overnight, we learned of the death of Playboy founder Hugh Hefner. Hefner is the iconic figure who not only made pornography socially respectable (and even more lucrative), but also spent a life constructing a “playboy philosophy” of sexual freedom that would supposedly undo the “Puritan sexual repression he saw in American life.” The death of any person is a tragedy. Hugh Hefner is no exception to that. We can’t, though, with his obituaries, call his life “success” or “a dream.” Hefner did not create, but marketed ingeniously the idea that a man’s life consists in the abundance of his possessions...

    Officials at Cambridge Public Schools are distancing the district from a letter penned by a school librarian rejecting books donated by first lady Melania Trump. In the blog post, published Tuesday on the Horn Book, Liz Phipps Soeiro, a library media specialist at the district’s Cambridgeport School, began by thanking the first lady for the 10 Dr. Seuss books sent to her school “for its high standards of excellence.” But she went on to explain why they would not be keeping the gifted titles. “Cities like Philadelphia, Chicago, and Detroit are suffering through expansion, privatization, and school ‘choice’ with no...

    A Cambridge Public Schools librarian has explained why her class won't be keeping a donation of books donated by First Lady Melania Trump. In an open letter on the book review site, Horn Book, elementary school librarian Liz Phipps Soeiro explained that her school already has thousands of books and postured that there were schools in greater need of the donation. She also took the opportunity to criticize the policies of Secretary of Education Betsy DeVos. Soeiro criticized the choice of donated books as well. "So, my school doesn’t have a NEED for these books. And then there’s the matter...

    What new Fox Sports analyst Michael Vick really did Leave a comment By Friendly Curmudgeon, September 5, 2017 at 12:43 pm Fox Sports announced August 27 that it has hired former NFL quarterback Michael Vick as a studio analyst for its NFL Kickoff program that immediately precedes NFL Sunday on the Fox network. The news release announcing the hire was hilarious in the way it avoided the elephant in the room; namely, Vick’s 2007 felony conviction for operating an illegal dog-fighting ring and subsequent year-and-a-half stint in federal prison. As mostly everyone knows, Vick was a successful quarterback for the...

    Hillary Clinton's former director of communications has her own story to tell. Jennifer Palmieri is working on a "book of lessons" for future women leaders, Grand Central Publishing told The Associated Press on Wednesday. The book is called "Dear Madam President," an "open letter" drawing upon Palmieri's experience in politics, including her time with Clinton's 2016 presidential campaign and her years as communications director during the Obama administration. Grand Central plans to release "Dear Madam President" on March 27. "'Dear Madam President' empowers and emboldens women to reach for the top rung in any situation, using informative insider stories and...
