From an interview with Hillary Clinton in Time:

Exclusive: Hillary Clinton on Running and Governing as a Woman
Jay Newton-Small @JNSmall Jan. 7, 2016

… Q. Any particular foreign leader whose executive stewardship you admire and might want to emulate as president?

Hillary: Well, I have to say that I highly admire Angela Merkel. I’ve known Angela since the 1990s, she and I actually appeared on a German TV show together. I have spent personal time with her. She is, I think, a really effective strong leader and really right now the major leader in Europe, not just in Germany. I admire her political skills and her principles, her strong work ethic. I just find her to be an incredibly important person in the world today and I look to her to see how she’s managed it.

    Man, it just keeps getting piled higher and deeper, doesn’t it?

    Perhaps Ms. Merkin can come over and testify as a character witness at Hilly’s upcoming trial.

    Then maybe they can share a cell. In Guantanamo Bay. For the rest of the century.

    Well after todays revelations regarding her instructions to an underling that he strip the classification data from a document and send it via unprotected e-mail likely means that she and Angela will be able to indulge in mutual Lesbian tourism sooner rather than later.

    I feel you are engaging in wishful thinking if you think that most people on the left view the "refugee" invasion as a bad thing yet.

    Even if they've heard of the rapes, theft and crime, they chalk it up to bad apples or somehow find a way to blame the natives.

    At this point, I think most sane people no longer call themselves leftists/progressives/etc. Every day it is taking an increasing amount of delusion and fantasy to believe that the leftist agenda is working out.

    The guy who attacked the police station in France was actually registered as an asylum seeker in Germany...he decorated his room in the asylum centre with an IS flag.
    So Trump is totally correct in linking this to Germany.

Still, we always met afterwards and had cordial conversations at various international events. I think even in this case we could reach an agreement.

    This woman really has no judgement, does she? This was amply demonstrated as Secretary of State where everything she touched she tarnished. ‘Vote for me because I’m female, I’m entitled’.

    You’d have thought that Hillary would have been prepared for a question like this and mentioned someone like the head of the IMF (Christine LaGarde, I’m not sure of the spelling and too lazy to look it up since I don’t like her), or maybe even Janet Yellen, or that Burmese woman, or a historical figure like Indira Ghandi or Benazhir Bhutto, for a little developing world cachet. But her answer reflects either a complete lack of preparation, or a genuine admiration for a policy of ethno-masochism and national suicide. I’m betting on the latter.

    Hillary Clinton’s memos and press reviews are probably made by Huma Abedin, whose family has been involved with the Muslim Brotherhood. Abedin surely thinks that it’s a great idea to arabize and islamize Germany. Her liberal Jewish husband probably agrees, like Soros (who is actually funding the swamping of Europe by migrants).

    Besides, the mainstream, liberal press if full of praise for Merkel. Times Magazine called her “Woman of the Year” for 2015.

    Hillary Clinton has neither the time nor the inclination to see beyond that. Merkel is highly praised by the mainstream press and by her closest collaborator and confidante, and that’s good enough for Hillary.

  44. I don’t understand why people think Merkel is a great leader…she’s got plenty of the low cunning necessary for party intrigues, but as a chancellor she’s a disaster, the worst one the federal republic ever had. And it’s not just her stance on the migrant invasion, she’s steadily sold out German interests during her cancellorship (interest rates are super-low now because of the Euro mess, that’s a disaster for Germans who are big into saving) and done many idiotic things like hastily ending nuclear power in 2011. She’s done populist stuff like raising pensions which will be unsustainable in the long run, but I’ve seen nothing that indicates she has a programme for ensuring Germany’s future prosperity. The German economy right now is doing well not because of her, but in spite of her, but in some areas like IT tech Germany is already hopelessly lagging behind. The future looks bleak, and in retrospect her chancellorship will be seen as a catastrophe, and it will be difficult to comprehend how that inept, stupid woman could ever be so popular.

    You'd have thought that Hillary would have been prepared for a question like this and mentioned someone like the head of the IMF (Christine LaGarde, I'm not sure of the spelling and too lazy to look it up since I don't like her), or maybe even Janet Yellen, or that Burmese woman, or a historical figure like Indira Ghandi or Benazhir Bhutto, for a little developing world cachet. But her answer reflects either a complete lack of preparation, or a genuine admiration for a policy of ethno-masochism and national suicide. I'm betting on the latter.

    Hillary is signaling to her supporters. I’m sure the vast majority of them approved of her message.

    Its literally impossible for someone to refer to a city, and then to a different country without implying that the city is in said country.

    incorrect!! You are too smart for your own good. Matter of fact Trump is speaking to American audiences colloquially so….

    That sounds like the most reasonable explanation. It's not that HRC disagrees with Merkel's policies, of course. But if she was better informed on what Merkel has been up to, she would have avoided citing her as her model - too controversial at this stage in the game.

    When was the interview done? Perhaps October, which makes it a good test of Hillary’s chops — two months into Merkel’s blunderkrieg, but before media noticed.

    October - that makes sense.

    Yes, it was October.

    Why did you say "perhaps"? Were you going to say add another word, early or late October?

    “Bad timing.”

    That seems to be Hillary’s schtick – bad timing, and somewhat to the left of Barack, who hasn’t been exactly svelte in his political moves over these seven years. May this coming election provide viable relief from this kind of punitive leadership(?).

    The guy who attacked the police station in France was actually registered as an asylum seeker in Germany…he decorated his room in the asylum centre with an IS flag.
    So Trump is totally correct in linking this to Germany.

  61. For the first time, I am convinced Trump actually CAN win, not that he WILL (that only time will tell) but he really CAN! This is really nuts but it shows that the biggest handicap Republican candidates had previously is that they were doing the bidding for their corporate donors, the rest of the country be damned. Trump is probably the first Republican presidential candidate since perhaps Eisenhower who hasn’t been bought and sold by corporate lobbies and it is this that makes him so dangerous to the Democrats. This recent poll is also equally astonishing: http://www.usnews.com/opinion/articles/2016-01-08/new-poll-shows-donald-trump-is-a-real-threat-to-hillary-clinton

    This also shows what was Romney’s real problem and why he was such a flop. He just couldn’t convince enough working class white voters to vote for him.

    Limbaugh has talked about how three million of them sat it out. The Democrats-Obama were smart and geared their campaign towards voter suppression. Via portraying via media narrative that Mitt Romney was a job destroying plutocrat.
    This will not work on The Donald whose biggest obstacle is getting the Republican nomination. The GOP establishment has many ways of sabotaging Trump. Trump better have his airplane checked every day! Seriously!
    Trump can whip that senile fatass (like Merkel) Hillary. Its just a matter of getting the Republican nomination. There are billions riding on Trump being denied. What! You thought that the GOP in DC was not a business? Washingtoon DC is a boomtown and everybody wants in on the action. Construction cranes all around, these useless eaters have hit the motherload.

    Hillary Clinton has long workdays. People in high office who are similarly busy don't have time to watch tv news or read newspapers. Instead, they rely on press reviews and memos made by collaborators. GWB relied on memos made by Condoleezza Rice. He boasted at least once that he only read the captions of newspaper articles.

    Hillary Clinton's memos and press reviews are probably made by Huma Abedin, whose family has been involved with the Muslim Brotherhood. Abedin surely thinks that it's a great idea to arabize and islamize Germany. Her liberal Jewish husband probably agrees, like Soros (who is actually funding the swamping of Europe by migrants).

    Besides, the mainstream, liberal press if full of praise for Merkel. Times Magazine called her "Woman of the Year" for 2015.

    Hillary Clinton has neither the time nor the inclination to see beyond that. Merkel is highly praised by the mainstream press and by her closest collaborator and confidante, and that's good enough for Hillary.

    If Hillary is elected president, her foreign policy will be similarly determined. And her domestic policies, too.

    100 percent correct plus don’t forget Hilary has all kinds of cell phone feeds coming into her to ruin any kind of coherent thinking. Cell phone calls and texts answered/replied to by ditzy female aids. Hillary is a mental (Merkel) ruin and if somehow she gets in America is done.
