    03/29/2017 1:16:58 PM PDT · by bryan999 · 36 replies
    A long-time aide to Hillary Clinton sought to map out her funeral — and Bill Clinton’s — in 2010 because “planning is best done when they are still with us,” according to an email released on Wednesday by Judicial Watch. Capricia Marshall, who was chief of protocol for the State Department when Hillary Clinton served as secretary of state, wrote to Huma Abedin, Doug Band and Cheryl Mills on Feb. 23, 2010, saying “everytime someone significant passes, I am flooded with requests” about the Clintons’ arrangements. “Planning is necessary and best done when they are still with us,” she wrote...

    A bizarre video has emerged of two women twerking over a coffin as reggaeton music blasts out during a funeral. Mourners in the clip appear to all be on board with the seductive send-off, as one lifts a dancer's skirt to make sure her underwear is on display while another throws a cup of ice over her. Others can be seen slapping the girls on their backsides as they dance provocatively and a bucket of water is thrown over the pair, in the footage which is believed to have been filmed in South America.

    He noted that with the exception of Palestinian Authority (PA) chairman Mahmoud Abbas, “not even one Arab leader” attended Peres’s funeral. “You consider him a man of peace, but as a matter of fact, in the Muslim tradition, they remember what happened in the past. You could see it in the Arab media after Peres died,” said Herrera. Peres was called “the butcher”, “the engineer of genocide against Arabs” and “the architect of apartheid and aggression against Egypt”...
