If Hillary were to withdraw, the selection of a replacement would fall to a majority vote of the Democratic National Committee, a largish group numbering in the hundreds of Democrat worthies, such as the chair and vice-chairs of all 50 states.

The current interim chairwoman of the DNC is Donna Brazile, an Oprah-type lady, a veteran of Jesse Jackson’s 1984 campaign and Al Gore’s campaign manager in 2000. She’s widely assumed to be a lesbian. She’s pretty witty and she sort of reminds me a little of Pat Buchanan: highly partisan, opinionated, and combative, but well-liked by other insiders because she recognizes the legitimacy of their right to play the game too. This is her second go-round as interim DNC chair, the previous one had been during the interregnum in 2011 between Tim Kaine and Debbie Wasserman-Schultz.

  1. Chelsea?

    Presidents must be 40 years old, according to the Constitution.
    , @Eric Novak
    Correction: 35 years of age. Chelsea is 36.
  2. If this does happen, it’ll be a scramble. I can’t see anyone within the Democrat party risking the Clintons’ wrath by floating themselves as a viable replacement until she’s clearly out.

    Whatever happens, it’ll be interesting to see the next time she appears in public and what her condition is.

  3. Unlike the Doris Kearns Goodwins of the world, Brazile is usually interesting to watch on the Sunday morning chat shows. She knows what she’s talking about and doesn’t take herself too seriously. She knows that, among other things, it’s a game.

  4. If Hillary were to withdraw, the selection of a replacement would fall to a majority vote of the Democratic National Committee, a largish group numbering in the hundreds of Democrat worthies, such as the chair and vice-chairs of all 50 states.

    In other words, choosing a candidate by bypassing the electorate entirely.

    I’ve wondered for sometime whether this hasn’t been the game. Get Grandma Illary in there to soak up the hours till the October Surprise…then dump her at the last moment for George Clooney/Elizabeth Warren.

    And she is stupid and gullible enough to do what ever her (((handlers))) tell her. Trump would crush her like Frodo and take the ring.

    My guess is the Democrats would have to give it to a black again like Corey Booker because the totem stack is too strong and white liberals are pussies. Bernie earned it but he lacks the killer instinct and someone would grab the 'microphone' like BLM did to him.

    The Democrats might be looking at a strategy like their not so distant cousins the greens have been pursuing where they get a Jewish front person (Stein / Nader) with a V.P. radical ethnic like Wynona La Duke or the new guy Ajamu Baraka as a life insurance policy.

  8. If she dies or withdraws there isn’t much to do but immediately select another nominee. Far worse would be another episode like Sunday or something even more severe and then having to force an unwilling Hillary to step down. In that event all hell would break loose.

  9. I had thought that it would be politically impossible, in the case of a Presidential-candidate vacancy, to choose anyone but the Vice-Presidential-candidate, on the basis that the party had just sworn up and down weeks or months ago that this guy is the ideal candidate to step in and take over if Something HAppens to No. 1.

    But the wild speculation is all about Biden and Sanders and Warren, not KAine. Maybe it’s just that “wild speculation” and “Governor Tim Kaine/Mike Pence” don’t mix. But apparently a lot of people would find it plausible to bypass the VP nominee.

    • Replies: @Yojimbo/Zatoichi
    Does the twenty-third amendment come into play? Biden has been VP for eight yrs, but he's also been part of an administration for eight yrs (as Obama is term limited by the 23rd Amendment) but I thought that the VP was limited by the 23 Amendment as well. Or perhaps not. Of course choosing Biden would be giving third term to Obama, but would that satisfy the Sanders voters who may believe that their candidate should be allowed to step up and fill the void. After all, he nearly won the nomination (at least in their minds).
  10. First off (karma biting her in the arse) Hillary resigning from the ticket will not play out for at least 2-4 weeks. She will not be leaving tomorrow, why should she? Early absentee ballot voting has already begun in some states and counties, ballots for Nov 8th are being printed up as we speak. If Tim Kaine became the Dems new presidential candidate in three weeks he would not be able to get on the ballot in half the US counties. My guess.
    Counties and states spend their own money to conduct elections. The Federales in DC have minimal input. Except when it come to Federal Courts ruling on voter ID laws and the evil Holder-Lynch Justice department jamming voting right laws down the throats of Southern states that do not discriminate in the least these days.

    He doesn't have to get on the ballot.
  11. Wouldn’t Biden be the safest and logical choice?

  12. “She’s widely assumed to be a lesbian.”

    Really? Like most of BLM founders, allegedly, supposedly.

    Brazile is also highly cognizant of being a black person. Race matters to her. She is a race woman (akin to being a”race man” Thurgood Marshall).

    “because she recognizes the legitimacy of their right to play the game too.”

    Brazile is actually well poised to consciously choose a candidate that largely appeals to blacks, BLM in particular. Perhaps a type of black candidate compromise would be, say NJ Senator what’s his name, the one who goes around with Steve Jobs widow. Kaine by himself wouldn’t necessarily bring the large turnout among the black vote. And barring a Democrat that can electrify whites en masse, once again….

    ca. 70% of the total white vote most likely will go from Trump. If Hillary were to drop out and is replaced by a black candidate or someone along the lines of a BLM influenced candidate, there’s really no reason why 40-45% of white voters should vote for him. I mean, Obama, they’ve already voted for a black candidate for president. Twice. Been there, done that. So what?

    For better or worse, right now Hillary is virtually the only candidate on the national stage that has a major name recognition across all demographics that rivals Trump. Should she have to withdraw, that leaves Trump pretty much the one main name among the two parties with the advantage in name recognition, familiarity with policy, etc. Who else is there? That what’s his name mayor of LA? Is he primetime ready? Seriously? Elizabeth Warren doesn’t have the national heft/demographic weight as Hillary. Trump wouldn’t have a hard time defining her as a Carly Fiorina type: Out of touch plutocrat etc. And since Warren’s name recognition isn’t near the level of Trump much less Hillary on the national stage, she would have to spend most of the campaign season remaining attempting to get name recognition.

    No, they’re up the creek on this one. They’ll just have to hope for the best and that she makes it to the finish line, literally.

    Given Trump's high unfavorable rating, this isn't necessarily a good thing. Same with Clinton.

    Anyone but a BLM candidate would make it easier for the Democrats to win the election than with the grating, obviously corrupt Clinton at the top of the ticket. Biden, Kaine....the question is if the Democrats would be brave enough to choose a white male....
  13. Is Pat Buchanan well liked by other insiders? My impression has always been he was not well liked by the insiders.

    The biggest factor in selecting a replacement would be how much influence the Clinton cronies have in the DNC and who is in the best position to pay them off. They would need to be well organized as there seems to be a significant anti-Clinton faction in the party that could get someone else selected if they are divided.

    Any speculation as to why Obama didn’t do more during his eight years in office to control the Clinton’s influence in the party and have the future leadership of the party have more loyalty to him than the Clintons? Was is sheer laziness or were they that well entrenched he couldn’t do anything about it?

    • Replies: @Veracitor
    Frm the outside Obama doesn't seem to be much of an organizer or director of other people. He's interested in himself, evidently likes to tell other people what he desires as if ordering in a restaurant, but doesn't seem very eager to boss a big team or try to finagle people into carrying out his schemes. I don't think he really comes up with detailed schemes for stuff outside his immediate orbit. He's never been a big-picture guy (except in a vague hate-whitey sense) and as a small-picture guy his narcissism and disinterest in technical detail leave him with the White House role of signing what his staff puts on his desk but only really tuning in to discuss his predjudices, golf schedule, or lunch menu. His shallow political desires get somewhat translated to policy just because there are always folks on his staff to propose specific programs to meet Obama's simplistic criteria, then the Lightworker chooses among those and signs the appropriate memos.

  14. If you’re Trump, you’re hoping Hillary is healthy enough to make it through the next 60 days.

    If Hillary drops out, she could be replaced by a more popular Democrat, like Kaine or Biden. It might be too late to change public opinion if that happens. With Hillary, she’s mortally wounded enough that she might be the easiest opponent to beat.

    There's also the Julian assange revelations that will be released soon.

    If Hillary drops out, it's not clear how much the Assange release hurts another Democrat, like Kaine or Biden.

    We need Hillary to stay healthy for the next 60 days.
    , @Dave Pinsen
    Ideally, Hillary stays in.

    But I suspect the enthusiasm level of Dems would drop if she gets replaced with a white man. Dems are all about progress. Going from 1st black president to 1st woman president is progress; going from the 1st black president to the 44th white male president.
    , @Tex
    While it would be hard to find a Democrat with more negatives than Hillary, an replacement would just have a new set of negatives. A replacement would have a massive uphill battle in organizing, dealing with factions, all while stinking of desperation.

    Or to put it another way, Clinton may be certifiably unelectable, but a replacement would be presumably unelectable. Whether its on white bread, rye, or whole wheat the dems still have to eat a crap sammich.

    Perhaps the option that is most fair to the people who voted in the democrat primaries would be Bernie Sanders / Tim Kaine.

    But as others here have remarked, it seems highly unlikely that the dems would run two white European-American men (much of the electorate would count Sanders as white). The Democrats must be concerned, probably rightly, that black turnout would be too low without someone who is at least part black on the ticket again,

    Might the Dems go with Tim Kaine / military-veteran WOMAN ? A woman in the veep spot could get the (unmarried) white women who were going heavily to vote for Shrillery to still turn out in droves. Tammy Duckworth has been a congresswoman only since 2013 and is running for US Senate now, so she's probably not portrayable as "ready." But she's a woman, Asian, from a larger State (Illinois), served as director of the State veterans department and asst director of federal VA, and was grievously injured (lost both legs) as a US Army helicopter pilot in Iraq. Just throwing a dark horse out there, though she would be much likelier in 2020 with a few years in the US Senate on the resume.

    Ah, no matter whom the Dems pick if Shrillery drops out, I'm for Trump.

  19. In the states, the Democratic electors are already chosen. And most ballots are already printed.

    Electors win the Electoral College are unbound. So it is actually the Hillary electors that must reach a consensus if She resigns.

  20. The talk by party aparatchiks of replacing her makes me think there’s an understory, to use the Mickey Kaus term.

    Jack Fowler, former DNC head, told Politico that they should have a contingency plan for replacing Clinton. Others have been talking to reporters like Shuster and Cokie Roberts off the record and saying the same thing. That makes me believe Clinton’s medical problems have not been kept entirely secret. If she does have cardiac problems or something of a similar scale she probably needs help from multiple aides, and that many people have problems keeping their mouths shut. The problems are likely known in the party leadership and they don’t think they can just ignore the fainting episode, as they would if it really was just a case of pneumonia.

    The Wikileaks drops are still to come. I wonder if anyone has been exchanging gossip about the subject over email.

    • Replies: @JohnnyWalker123
    I was about to mention that too. Cokie Roberts claims that Democratic leaders are talking about Clinton dropping out of the race. Which suggests that her health problems are common knowledge among the party leaders and that her health issues are very serious. It's not just allergies and pneumonia.

    I'm not sure if Hillary would be willing to drop out. If she leaves the race, she'll forgo her opportunity to ever become president. I don't think she'd do it for the good of the party.

    Maybe if someone blackmails Hillary, she'll leave the race? There's a lot of stuff out there on the Clntons. If top Democrats feel that it's in their interest to replace her, they could play the blackmail card.
    , @Lagertha
    And, if she has been taking Coumadin for a long time, well, that stuff is poison. I think everybody knows what is going on with her, so this is so tedious to listen to by every talking head - Anderson and a few others are such tools, right now. Because: it does not explain that pen; her head wobble; her spaced-out episodes on camera. And, if you have pneumonia, you don't go and infect other people. Why does she have a tricked-out ambulance/van on her detail, anyway?

    Now it is just a case of nerves as to how to get this narcissistic woman to drop-out for the "good of the party." And, since Bernie ( a true socialist) was thrown to the curb, and was forced to say nice things about Hillary, I think finding someone palatable for "low information" liberals, this late, will look like idiocy. Democrats, or should I just say, Bolsheviks at this point, are going to look stupid one way or the other. Well, this is my fun prediction. Although, running against a wounded animal is a no-brainer. Plus the lady doth protest too much...especially right now!

    What really annoys/amuses me is that 8 years ago, the "Versailles Court" of Hollywood, East Coasters, Wall Street, didn't want Hillary. They basically told her, "get lost" we want the obscure guy with the exotic name (serious virtue-signaling by all these people, btw)...these same people, who just laughed their asses off at the Deplorables at the Cipriani). Why is nobody bringing up that all major Democrats "abandoned ship Hillary" 8 years ago...so why are they now saying everybody "get behind her, and, all say, "yeah, I had Pneumonia, too, while at the beach at Scionset Point, or after the clam-bake by Georgica Pond. No one gets Pneumonia in the summer; give me a break!

    Kaine would not only be unrecognizable, but completely alien to the his professed community.

    If you have a brain you can learn from experience and use reason to advance your position. Democrats and liberals neither learn from experience nor use reason.
  23. The DNC rules would result in about 30% of the people in the room being Sanders people, although they are not bound to him in any way. Still, the way they select the delegates to this special committee gives Sanders a big edge simply because he would have a lot of people championing his cause. No one else would have such a presence.

    That said, the logistics of picking a new candidate are daunting. Her campaign has raised most of the available money for a Democrat and it is not transferable. The DNC would need Clinton to sign off of spending the money on ads for the new candidate. Then there is the campaign staffing in each state. If the DNC was plotting such a move, it has to happen soon.

    That said, Clinton will not drop out unless she drops dead. These people make the Snopes clan look restrained.

    I had long assumed the Hillary health stuff was just talk -- because, I reasoned, if she were really that ill, it would be known to top Democratic leaders, and they would have either pressured her not to run or, failing that, arranged for a more suitable candidate to challenge her in the primaries, then put a thumb on the scale to give that candidate an advantage.

    But the only people to challenge her were Bernie Sanders and that other guy who was such a nobody that I can't immediately remember his name, or be bothered to look it up. So if this turns out to be serious, I can only conclude that either nearly all top Democrats (including President Obama!) were kept entirely in the dark about the extent of her health issues, at least until quite recently -- or they knew all along and made no effort to stop her.

    Or most ominously: They knew all along and were powerless to stop her.

    All of these scenarios are extremely troubling.

    The problem is that Brazile has had the temerity to keep her private life - such as it is - entirely private. She's from Louisiana, very Black Church lady like, and I think that whatever she does or doesn't do behind closed doors she probably doesn't want it announced to the world and people back at Church. That's no longer acceptable in The Current Year. If you're a lesbian, you have to be one of those kinds of lesbians who is hopping mad about it. If she has had dalliances with women you'd expect that to be brought to the fore if her profile was to be raised.

  32. I understand that the DNC could pick another Democrat (presumably that Democrat could pick a new running mate – if Kaine was picked to appeal to non-elite white mles and they pick Biden, then they’ve hamsrtung themselves while a Liz Warren would be better), but how does the new Democrat (and new VP candidate) get on the ballot in all 50 states? Even assuming they could take a knee in states in which they don’t compete like Alabama and Mississippi they’d still have to get on the ballot in places like Pennsylvania and Ohio which aren’t totally controlled by Democrats and with no guarantee that they’d be able to get statutory deadlines waived as the Dems did with Toricelli in New Jersey. Any state where the actual live or non-withdrawing Democrat Presidential nominee isn’t on the ballot in November would spell disaster for all of the down-ballot Democrats.

    It doesn't matter if Hillary's name is still on the ballot on November 8. The voters do not choose the president. The electors of the Electoral College make the decision.

    Any Elector pledged to Hillary can be assumed loyal enough to cast their vote for whomever the DNC picks as her replacement.
    , @Intelligent Dasein

    ...but how does the new Democrat (and new VP candidate) get on the ballot in all 50 states?
     
    I don't mean to pick on you in particular, because I've seen a lot of people raise this point over the last 12-24 hours, but in point of fact it just doesn't matter. For one thing, Kaine is already on the ballot as the vice presidential nominee. When you cast your vote for president, you are voting for the ticket not the individual, and Kaine is the number two man on the ticket. If Hillary died or withdrew, then in the absence of any other action (i.e. the proffered second Dem convention), all of Hillary's votes would naturally escheat to Kaine.

    Secondly, if the DNC does convene and choose another candidate, balloting deadlines are not going to make a lick of difference. The purpose of the deadlines is only to prevent late-coming challengers from making a fiasco out of the election. Neither logically nor legally does it make any sense that one of the major parties would be denied ballot representation just because their chosen candidate happened to die before Election Day. Even if they used the actual ballots that still had the "Clinton-Kaine (D)" bubbles printed on them, those votes would be presumed to go to the new Democratic candidate.

    In short, the vote is for the party not the person.

  33. You will know Hilary is in real melt down mode when you hear her say, “I’m Bob Dole” in the middle of a speech. Trump should have his bugging devices sweeps guy hack into Hillary’s earpiece and get her repeating, “I’m Bob Dole and I approve this message”

    If Donna really said that than that makes her even more qualified to be the face of The Democratic Party. We need the DNC to be as bluntly anti-White as possible in order for that party to turn off White moderate centrists from voting for them.
  38. Hillary has spent her whole life trying to get this job and I doubt she is going to give it up now. I believe that she will have other people do her campaigning for her and she will limit herself to televised or phone interviews. The media will be happy to play along.

    In the unlikely event she does drop out, my guess is that Tim Kaine becomes president and that a minority is VP. I would say Cory Booker or Julian Castro but I doubt either one of them want to be associated with a sinking ship like in 2016; they would prefer to wait it out until 2020. Some other non-white Democrat will fall on his/her sword and be the VP, full well knowing that it will be a losing ticket, with a favor to be named later.

    I don’t think Democrats are sweating this election much. They are true believers of the demographic game. They will rationalize as “let Trump play President for four years, we will be winning every election thereafter.” I get the feeling that Hillary was never really expected to win anyway but since it was “her turn”, they would let her have it. Once she fails, the Clinton wing of the Democrats can go away for good and the Obama wing of the Democrats can take over.

  39. Too bad Donna Brazile is in that spot right now. I think she’s about the best potential president the Democrats have, but as the referee she is unlikely to get the grand prize. Her sexuality might be a net electoral minus, but maybe not- if anyone is going to get the latitude to tell the cultural left to cool their jets, it would be a black lesbian.

    Biden would be the only appealing candidate capable of putting on an appropriate performance at the debates. Neither Warren or Sanders will ever be allowed near the levers of power, and for good reason. I'd rather see Clinton president than either of the obnoxious grifters. Michelle hates the political arena except as a bully pulpit for personal grievances, Kaine would drive howls of outrage from too many bits of the coalition, and there are no dark horse candidates available anyway.

    “Neither Warren or Sanders will ever be allowed near the levers of power, and for good reason. I’d rather see Clinton president than either of the obnoxious grifters.”

    "She’s widely assumed to be a lesbian."

    A Black Lesbian is a White Liberal voter's dream candidate. Nothing says you are a Good White quite like casting your vote for a Black Dyke for president. It makes a White Liberal's progressive credentials go through the roof.

    Would the Black church ladies though come out in record numbers to vote for a Black Lesbo? Or would race trump religion with the Black church ladies and they would still come out in record numbers to vote for her?

    The problem is that Brazile has had the temerity to keep her private life – such as it is – entirely private. She’s from Louisiana, very Black Church lady like, and I think that whatever she does or doesn’t do behind closed doors she probably doesn’t want it announced to the world and people back at Church. That’s no longer acceptable in The Current Year. If you’re a lesbian, you have to be one of those kinds of lesbians who is hopping mad about it. If she has had dalliances with women you’d expect that to be brought to the fore if her profile was to be raised.

    I found the comment:

    That Brazile is a black woman working for the leading Democratic candidate has been called the "icing on the cake." And she knows that people are quietly asking: Is she really at the table? Is she truly running the campaign?

    She is in that perilous and burdensome position of being a "first," and she both fights the symbolism and embraces the position. The last reason Gore chose her, she says, was her race and gender. But the reality is that in this world, the only time race and gender don't matter is . . . never.

    "A black female in America is the most invisible object in the world," Brazil says. She will not let the "white boys" win. And that's not a description of "gender or race, it's an attitude. A white-boy attitude is 'I must exclude, denigrate and leave behind,' " Brazile says. "They don't see it or think about it. It's a culture." It is the sense of utter entitlement. And that she will not have.
     
  46. I don’t think Hillary’s close to ‘pushin’ up the daisies’, but she is becoming a debilitated invalid. Either way, she’s not fit for the presidency. Even 4 thousand volts won’t fix that.

  47. @JohnnyWalker123
    I was about to mention that too. Cokie Roberts claims that Democratic leaders are talking about Clinton dropping out of the race. Which suggests that her health problems are common knowledge among the party leaders and that her health issues are very serious. It's not just allergies and pneumonia.

    I'm not sure if Hillary would be willing to drop out. If she leaves the race, she'll forgo her opportunity to ever become president. I don't think she'd do it for the good of the party.

    Maybe if someone blackmails Hillary, she'll leave the race? There's a lot of stuff out there on the Clntons. If top Democrats feel that it's in their interest to replace her, they could play the blackmail card.

    I had long assumed the Hillary health stuff was just talk — because, I reasoned, if she were really that ill, it would be known to top Democratic leaders, and they would have either pressured her not to run or, failing that, arranged for a more suitable candidate to challenge her in the primaries, then put a thumb on the scale to give that candidate an advantage.

    But the only people to challenge her were Bernie Sanders and that other guy who was such a nobody that I can’t immediately remember his name, or be bothered to look it up. So if this turns out to be serious, I can only conclude that either nearly all top Democrats (including President Obama!) were kept entirely in the dark about the extent of her health issues, at least until quite recently — or they knew all along and made no effort to stop her.

    Or most ominously: They knew all along and were powerless to stop her.

    All of these scenarios are extremely troubling.

    If you're Trump, you're hoping Hillary is healthy enough to make it through the next 60 days.

    If Hillary drops out, she could be replaced by a more popular Democrat, like Kaine or Biden. It might be too late to change public opinion if that happens. With Hillary, she's mortally wounded enough that she might be the easiest opponent to beat.

    Ideally, Hillary stays in.

    But I suspect the enthusiasm level of Dems would drop if she gets replaced with a white man. Dems are all about progress. Going from 1st black president to 1st woman president is progress; going from the 1st black president to the 44th white male president.

    Hillary Clinton was headed to an emergency room following her sudden collapse during the Sept. 11 memorial ceremony — but ditched her NYPD escort and detoured to daughter Chelsea Clinton’s apartment to keep details of her medical treatment under wraps, The Post has learned.

    Secret Service protocol called for the Democratic presidential nominee to be taken to a state-designated Level I Trauma Center in the wake of her Sunday morning health crisis at Ground Zero, sources said.
    Video: Opinion Journal: Is Hillary Healthy Enough to Serve?

    But a campaign operative decided to change course to avoid treatment by doctors, nurses or other medical workers who could leak details to reporters, a source said.

    Clinton’s van was supposed to be escorted by an NYPD protective detail, but the Secret Service whisked her away from Ground Zero before cops could accompany her, another source said.

    Clinton had told police officials that she didn’t want the escort at all, but the NYPD overruled that request, the source added.

    I understand that the DNC could pick another Democrat (presumably that Democrat could pick a new running mate - if Kaine was picked to appeal to non-elite white mles and they pick Biden, then they've hamsrtung themselves while a Liz Warren would be better), but how does the new Democrat (and new VP candidate) get on the ballot in all 50 states? Even assuming they could take a knee in states in which they don't compete like Alabama and Mississippi they'd still have to get on the ballot in places like Pennsylvania and Ohio which aren't totally controlled by Democrats and with no guarantee that they'd be able to get statutory deadlines waived as the Dems did with Toricelli in New Jersey. Any state where the actual live or non-withdrawing Democrat Presidential nominee isn't on the ballot in November would spell disaster for all of the down-ballot Democrats.

    It doesn’t matter if Hillary’s name is still on the ballot on November 8. The voters do not choose the president. The electors of the Electoral College make the decision.

    Any Elector pledged to Hillary can be assumed loyal enough to cast their vote for whomever the DNC picks as her replacement.

    • Replies: @Maj. Kong
    I have wondered whether the Trump electors are dedicated to him personally, or are just RNC approved hacks. I can easily imagine faithless electors in either a tie or narrow margin victory. In the first scenario voting for Hillary, and in the second voting for Paul Ryan to ensure the House can execute a coup.
  59. Steve raised the issue of Hillary withdrawing on 9/10, the evening before she blacked out at the 9/11 memorial. I was skeptical at first, but events proved Steve right. I’m guessing that Steve knows some journos who know journos who’ve been covering the Hillary campaign up close. Or maybe Ron knows some of the people who’ve attended Hillary’s fundraisers. And maybe these people, insiders, have seen Hillary being sick a lot more often and more seriously than the public.

    The best scenario for Trump is if she doesn’t withdraw, but shows up to the debates sick, campaigns little and faints in public a couple more times. The worst scenario – probably debating Fauxcahontas. Kaine is more beta than Jeb, and Trump has known how to humiliate betas since kindergarten.

    Hillary dying before the election would be very bad. The funeral, the massive amounts of praise (few people like to badmouth a warm corpse), the glowing TV retrospectives will make for a Kaine landslide.

    I had long assumed the Hillary health stuff was just talk -- because, I reasoned, if she were really that ill, it would be known to top Democratic leaders, and they would have either pressured her not to run or, failing that, arranged for a more suitable candidate to challenge her in the primaries, then put a thumb on the scale to give that candidate an advantage.

    But the only people to challenge her were Bernie Sanders and that other guy who was such a nobody that I can't immediately remember his name, or be bothered to look it up. So if this turns out to be serious, I can only conclude that either nearly all top Democrats (including President Obama!) were kept entirely in the dark about the extent of her health issues, at least until quite recently -- or they knew all along and made no effort to stop her.

    Or most ominously: They knew all along and were powerless to stop her.

    All of these scenarios are extremely troubling.

    Maybe neither party wants to win in 2016. Maybe both parties realize that global financial collapse and hot wars with hi-tech opponents are just around the corner. So each party nominates the worst candidate they can find, hoping to stick the other with the job of managing an impossible situation.

    There may be something to that. Certainly, the Republican Establishment was/is willing to tolerate four years of Hillary so long as they continue to control Congress... thinking that things will get so bad on her watch the 2020 Republican candidate will be a shoo-in.

    Conversely, us Trump supporters really have to worry that the stock-market Ponzi scheme and the $20 trillion national debt will implode on his watch and the Democrats (and the Republican Establishment, for that matter) will get away with blaming him for the next 50 years -- just as Democrats got away with blaming Hoover for the Depression for almost a half-century.

    If Hillary were to withdraw, the selection of a replacement would fall to a majority vote of the Democratic National Committee, a largish group numbering in the hundreds of Democrat worthies, such as the chair and vice-chairs of all 50 states.
     
    In other words, choosing a candidate by bypassing the electorate entirely.

    But the closest thing to a major entertainer to crossover that I can think of is the gremlin-looking Al Franken with his hilarious voice.

    Susan Sarandon, Annette Bening, Ellen DeGeneres, Meryl Streep, Oprah Winfrey, Glenn Close, Sigourney Weaver, Jamie Lee Curtis, Cher - how have they not recruited any of these women?

    The talk by party aparatchiks of replacing her makes me think there's an understory, to use the Mickey Kaus term.

    Jack Fowler, former DNC head, told Politico that they should have a contingency plan for replacing Clinton. Others have been talking to reporters like Shuster and Cokie Roberts off the record and saying the same thing. That makes me believe Clinton's medical problems have not been kept entirely secret. If she does have cardiac problems or something of a similar scale she probably needs help from multiple aides, and that many people have problems keeping their mouths shut. The problems are likely known in the party leadership and they don't think they can just ignore the fainting episode, as they would if it really was just a case of pneumonia.

    The Wikileaks drops are still to come. I wonder if anyone has been exchanging gossip about the subject over email.

    And, if she has been taking Coumadin for a long time, well, that stuff is poison. I think everybody knows what is going on with her, so this is so tedious to listen to by every talking head – Anderson and a few others are such tools, right now. Because: it does not explain that pen; her head wobble; her spaced-out episodes on camera. And, if you have pneumonia, you don’t go and infect other people. Why does she have a tricked-out ambulance/van on her detail, anyway?

    Now it is just a case of nerves as to how to get this narcissistic woman to drop-out for the “good of the party.” And, since Bernie ( a true socialist) was thrown to the curb, and was forced to say nice things about Hillary, I think finding someone palatable for “low information” liberals, this late, will look like idiocy. Democrats, or should I just say, Bolsheviks at this point, are going to look stupid one way or the other. Well, this is my fun prediction. Although, running against a wounded animal is a no-brainer. Plus the lady doth protest too much…especially right now!

    What really annoys/amuses me is that 8 years ago, the “Versailles Court” of Hollywood, East Coasters, Wall Street, didn’t want Hillary. They basically told her, “get lost” we want the obscure guy with the exotic name (serious virtue-signaling by all these people, btw)…these same people, who just laughed their asses off at the Deplorables at the Cipriani). Why is nobody bringing up that all major Democrats “abandoned ship Hillary” 8 years ago…so why are they now saying everybody “get behind her, and, all say, “yeah, I had Pneumonia, too, while at the beach at Scionset Point, or after the clam-bake by Georgica Pond.

    Is Pat Buchanan well liked by other insiders? My impression has always been he was not well liked by the insiders.

    The biggest factor in selecting a replacement would be how much influence the Clinton cronies have in the DNC and who is in the best position to pay them off. They would need to be well organized as there seems to be a significant anti-Clinton faction in the party that could get someone else selected if they are divided.

    Any speculation as to why Obama didn't do more during his eight years in office to control the Clinton's influence in the party and have the future leadership of the party have more loyalty to him than the Clintons? Was is sheer laziness or were they that well entrenched he couldn't do anything about it?

    Frm the outside Obama doesn’t seem to be much of an organizer or director of other people. He’s interested in himself, evidently likes to tell other people what he desires as if ordering in a restaurant, but doesn’t seem very eager to boss a big team or try to finagle people into carrying out his schemes. I don’t think he really comes up with detailed schemes for stuff outside his immediate orbit. He’s never been a big-picture guy (except in a vague hate-whitey sense) and as a small-picture guy his narcissism and disinterest in technical detail leave him with the White House role of signing what his staff puts on his desk but only really tuning in to discuss his predjudices, golf schedule, or lunch menu.

Any state where the actual live or non-withdrawing Democrat Presidential nominee isn't on the ballot in November would spell disaster for all of the down-ballot Democrats.

    …but how does the new Democrat (and new VP candidate) get on the ballot in all 50 states?

    I don’t mean to pick on you in particular, because I’ve seen a lot of people raise this point over the last 12-24 hours, but in point of fact it just doesn’t matter. For one thing, Kaine is already on the ballot as the vice presidential nominee. When you cast your vote for president, you are voting for the ticket not the individual, and Kaine is the number two man on the ticket. If Hillary died or withdrew, then in the absence of any other action (i.e. the proffered second Dem convention), all of Hillary’s votes would naturally escheat to Kaine.

    Secondly, if the DNC does convene and choose another candidate, balloting deadlines are not going to make a lick of difference. The purpose of the deadlines is only to prevent late-coming challengers from making a fiasco out of the election. Neither logically nor legally does it make any sense that one of the major parties would be denied ballot representation just because their chosen candidate happened to die before Election Day. Even if they used the actual ballots that still had the “Clinton-Kaine (D)” bubbles printed on them, those votes would be presumed to go to the new Democratic candidate.

Neither logically nor legally does it make any sense that one of the major parties would be denied ballot representation just because their chosen candidate happened to die before Election Day. Even if they used the actual ballots that still had the “Clinton-Kaine (D)” bubbles printed on them, those votes would be presumed to go to the new Democratic candidate.

    In short, the vote is for the party not the person.
     
    No, it's for the electors tied to the persons.

    Does the twenty-third amendment come into play? Biden has been VP for eight yrs, but he's also been part of an administration for eight yrs (as Obama is term limited by the 23rd Amendment) but I thought that the VP was limited by the 23 Amendment as well. Or perhaps not. Of course choosing Biden would be giving third term to Obama, but would that satisfy the Sanders voters who may believe that their candidate should be allowed to step up and fill the void. After all, he nearly won the nomination (at least in their minds).

    Of course the press should insist Hillary disclose not only who the woman with her yesterday was, but also the bald, black guy who has been a fixture by her side lately.

    Assange may not have anything, but I anticipate that he will. In any event, the specter of a scandalous release altered her campaign trajectory. She has been put into the position of someone who is forced to deny something, and the opponent(s) get some measure of satisfaction by making them do so.

Then, when the GOP and Hillary had devastated each other, get rid of Hillary and run a new face who would look saintly in comparison.

    Biden is a logical choice: nice, friendly, not too extreme (although a white male). Sanders and Warren are too far left, too unpleasant, too white.

    But Michelle Obama would win in a landslide.

    “Biden is a logical choice: nice, friendly, not too extreme”

    Joe Biden is pro-open borders, so he’s just as extreme as Elizabeth Warren and Bernie Sanders. The only people who believe Bernie and Elizabeth are more extreme than the pro-invite the world Democratic establishment crony Wall Street capitalists who fund Hillary Clinton’s campaign are wealthy 1 percenters who do not want to be taxed to their eyeballs.

    Since none of Steve Sailer’s readers are wealthy, a Elizabeth or Bernie presidency would have a zero effect on their tax rate. Only wealthy people would financially suffer from a Socialist like Bernie or Elizabeth in The White House.

I don't think he really comes up with detailed schemes for stuff outside his immediate orbit. He's never been a big-picture guy (except in a vague hate-whitey sense) and as a small-picture guy his narcissism and disinterest in technical detail leave him with the White House role of signing what his staff puts on his desk but only really tuning in to discuss his predjudices, golf schedule, or lunch menu.

    Any run by Affleck will bring up shots of him in a Red Sox cap (he attends the games when the Sox come to LA, and sometimes hangs out in the dugout in Boston during playoff games), chants of “How do you like ‘dem apples?” (not his line, but still fun to say), and, of course, reruns of Jimmy Fallon/Rachel Dratch’s sketches of the “Boston Red Sox Superfans” from SNL (not about Affleck, but definitely inspired by Good Will Hunting.

    "She’s widely assumed to be a lesbian."

    Really? Like most of BLM founders, allegedly, supposedly.

    Brazile is also highly cognizant of being a black person. Race matters to her. She is a race woman (akin to being a"race man" Thurgood Marshall).

    "because she recognizes the legitimacy of their right to play the game too."

    Brazile is actually well poised to consciously choose a candidate that largely appeals to blacks, BLM in particular. Perhaps a type of black candidate compromise would be, say NJ Senator what's his name, the one who goes around with Steve Jobs widow. Kaine by himself wouldn't necessarily bring the large turnout among the black vote. And barring a Democrat that can electrify whites en masse, once again….

    ca. 70% of the total white vote most likely will go from Trump. If Hillary were to drop out and is replaced by a black candidate or someone along the lines of a BLM influenced candidate, there's really no reason why 40-45% of white voters should vote for him. I mean, Obama, they've already voted for a black candidate for president. Twice. Been there, done that. So what?

    For better or worse, right now Hillary is virtually the only candidate on the national stage that has a major name recognition across all demographics that rivals Trump. Should she have to withdraw, that leaves Trump pretty much the one main name among the two parties with the advantage in name recognition, familiarity with policy, etc. Who else is there? That what's his name mayor of LA? Is he primetime ready? Seriously? Elizabeth Warren doesn't have the national heft/demographic weight as Hillary. Trump wouldn't have a hard time defining her as a Carly Fiorina type: Out of touch plutocrat etc. And since Warren's name recognition isn't near the level of Trump much less Hillary on the national stage, she would have to spend most of the campaign season remaining attempting to get name recognition.

    No, they're up the creek on this one. They'll just have to hope for the best and that she makes it to the finish line, literally.

    Should she have to withdraw, that leaves Trump pretty much the one main name among the two parties with the advantage in name recognition, familiarity with policy, etc

    Given Trump’s high unfavorable rating, this isn’t necessarily a good thing. Same with Clinton.

    "Didn’t Brazile once say during a campaign to “not let the white boys win”?"

    If Donna really said that than that makes her even more qualified to be the face of The Democratic Party. We need the DNC to be as bluntly anti-White as possible in order for that party to turn off White moderate centrists from voting for them.

    I found the comment:

    That Brazile is a black woman working for the leading Democratic candidate has been called the “icing on the cake.” And she knows that people are quietly asking: Is she really at the table? Is she truly running the campaign?

    She is in that perilous and burdensome position of being a “first,” and she both fights the symbolism and embraces the position. The last reason Gore chose her, she says, was her race and gender. But the reality is that in this world, the only time race and gender don’t matter is . . . never.

    “A black female in America is the most invisible object in the world,” Brazil says. She will not let the “white boys” win. And that’s not a description of “gender or race, it’s an attitude. A white-boy attitude is ‘I must exclude, denigrate and leave behind,’ ” Brazile says. “They don’t see it or think about it. It’s a culture.” It is the sense of utter entitlement. And that she will not have.

    All you would need is for Hillary to have a serious health crisis, Trump have a serious assassination attempt, a global financial meltdown, and a military clash in the South China Sea where US comes in second. Add in "proof " of Russian interference in the election, and you have the perfect recipe for a "Special State of Emergency."

    I was thinking Ben Affleck could make a decent Ronald Reagan of the left candidate some day, especially with Jennifer Garner as his potential First Lady -- beautiful, likable, 3 kids, and from West Virginia, the most authentically American of all the states. But then ...

    Off the top of my head, John Hall of Orleans (“Still the One” and a few other 70’s hits) was a congressman from NY for two terms, and then Al Franken. The gay American idol runner up that had a few pop semi-hits ran a losing but respectable race for Congress in a gerrymandered Republican district.

    And she is stupid and gullible enough to do what ever her (((handlers))) tell her. Trump would crush her like Frodo and take the ring.

    My guess is the Democrats would have to give it to a black again like Corey Booker because the totem stack is too strong and white liberals are pussies. Bernie earned it but he lacks the killer instinct and someone would grab the 'microphone' like BLM did to him.

    The Democrats might be looking at a strategy like their not so distant cousins the greens have been pursuing where they get a Jewish front person (Stein / Nader) with a V.P. radical ethnic like Wynona La Duke or the new guy Ajamu Baraka as a life insurance policy.

    The rabidly anti-white Baraka is really a piece of work, as of course is (((Stein))), although their foreign policy views align largely with ours, and personally I’ve always been partial to the Greens’ environmental views.

    Nader is not Jewish. His parents were Lebanese Christians (I’m not sure which type). Although racially they are not all that distinct from the Jews, Jews they are not.

    A Black Lesbian is a White Liberal voter's dream candidate. Nothing says you are a Good White quite like casting your vote for a Black Dyke for president. It makes a White Liberal's progressive credentials go through the roof.

    Would the Black church ladies though come out in record numbers to vote for a Black Lesbo? Or would race trump religion with the Black church ladies and they would still come out in record numbers to vote for her?

    I had long assumed the Hillary health stuff was just talk -- because, I reasoned, if she were really that ill, it would be known to top Democratic leaders, and they would have either pressured her not to run or, failing that, arranged for a more suitable candidate to challenge her in the primaries, then put a thumb on the scale to give that candidate an advantage.

    But the only people to challenge her were Bernie Sanders and that other guy who was such a nobody that I can't immediately remember his name, or be bothered to look it up. So if this turns out to be serious, I can only conclude that either nearly all top Democrats (including President Obama!) were kept entirely in the dark about the extent of her health issues, at least until quite recently -- or they knew all along and made no effort to stop her.

    Or most ominously: They knew all along and were powerless to stop her.

    All of these scenarios are extremely troubling.

    She allowed the Chinese, the Russians, the Israelis, the Turks, the Muslim brotherhood, Mexico, ISIS, iran, pakistan, Al Qaeda and anyone else to read SCI/ts level secrets so she could have her pay for play schemes not subpoena -able. Her graft— to our country’s enemies —was to the tune of hundreds of millions.

    And EVERY SiNGLE INTEL agency knew, as did every high up executive and legislative branch member, and they either Knew all along and made no effort to stop her, or were incapable of it.

    All of which is a lot more terrifying and disheartening than her lies about her health.

    Maybe neither party wants to win in 2016. Maybe both parties realize that global financial collapse and hot wars with hi-tech opponents are just around the corner. So each party nominates the worst candidate they can find, hoping to stick the other with the job of managing an impossible situation.

    There may be something to that. Certainly, the Republican Establishment was/is willing to tolerate four years of Hillary so long as they continue to control Congress… thinking that things will get so bad on her watch the 2020 Republican candidate will be a shoo-in.

    Conversely, us Trump supporters really have to worry that the stock-market Ponzi scheme and the $20 trillion national debt will implode on his watch and the Democrats (and the Republican Establishment, for that matter) will get away with blaming him for the next 50 years — just as Democrats got away with blaming Hoover for the Depression for almost a half-century.

    If Hillary were to withdraw, the selection of a replacement would fall to a majority vote of the Democratic National Committee, a largish group numbering in the hundreds of Democrat worthies, such as the chair and vice-chairs of all 50 states.
     
    In other words, choosing a candidate by bypassing the electorate entirely.

    Um, Good Will Hunting? Affleck grew up in and is associated with Boston. The kids were baptized in West VA (where Garner, not Affleck, has family), but they live in Los Angeles. Affleck has no connection to West VA himself.

    Any run by Affleck will bring up shots of him in a Red Sox cap (he attends the games when the Sox come to LA, and sometimes hangs out in the dugout in Boston during playoff games), chants of "How do you like 'dem apples?" (not his line, but still fun to say), and, of course, reruns of Jimmy Fallon/Rachel Dratch's sketches of the "Boston Red Sox Superfans" from SNL (not about Affleck, but definitely inspired by Good Will Hunting.

    ...but how does the new Democrat (and new VP candidate) get on the ballot in all 50 states?
     
    I don't mean to pick on you in particular, because I've seen a lot of people raise this point over the last 12-24 hours, but in point of fact it just doesn't matter. For one thing, Kaine is already on the ballot as the vice presidential nominee. When you cast your vote for president, you are voting for the ticket not the individual, and Kaine is the number two man on the ticket. If Hillary died or withdrew, then in the absence of any other action (i.e. the proffered second Dem convention), all of Hillary's votes would naturally escheat to Kaine.

    Secondly, if the DNC does convene and choose another candidate, balloting deadlines are not going to make a lick of difference. The purpose of the deadlines is only to prevent late-coming challengers from making a fiasco out of the election. Neither logically nor legally does it make any sense that one of the major parties would be denied ballot representation just because their chosen candidate happened to die before Election Day. Even if they used the actual ballots that still had the "Clinton-Kaine (D)" bubbles printed on them, those votes would be presumed to go to the new Democratic candidate.

    In short, the vote is for the party not the person.

    Avatar wasn't a flop. It just didn't make money. You notice Cameron/Fox have not exactly moved fast to create a sequel. There are sequels to Guardians of the Galaxy, there have been what, fifteen Fast and Furious movies, a zillion Marvel movies, even finally a bunch of DC movies.

    Avatar cost way too much, depended on vastly inflated 3-D ticket prices people can't/won't afford in harder times, and was a gimmick without plot or the critical ability to sell lots of toys. You don't see little girls lining up for the merch like they do with Frozen or little boys clamoring for Avatar toys like they do Marvel toys.

    Avatar was very mildly profitable at best, with its enormous capital requirements it is a terrible risk; even Fox can't afford a flop with a budget well over $500 million at least in total production and marketing; only Disney can handle that sort of risk. If another movie is ever made it will take years, for the CGI production cost to come down enough that the risk is closer to $200 million in total cost.

    We will certainly have more ISIS attacks, both lone wolves and organized attacks like 9/11.
    Particularly as Assad/Iran/Russia pushes them back out of areas, they have every incentive to do so and a porous border makes smuggling people and things like weaponized drones easy.

    Yeah sure, Obama's people have already floated out trial balloons in the media along the lines of "what if Putin hacks the election results, wouldn't we have to suspend elections?" Ed Luce in today's FT treads close to that line, which I've seen linked off Drudge to WaPo and other favored media outlets.

    Obama is NOT an American. He's a cultural Indonesian/Hawaiian fantasizing about being an African Big Man. He'd LOVE to stay in office forever and have White people bow down and grovel every day to him, which is his main motivation.

    The big struggle is the House of Clinton vs. the House of Obama. The FT noted today that the Clinton Machine comprises really all of the Dem Party; however as the sitting two term Democratic and Black President, Obama matches her in power and has no incentive to just hand it over. I could see him manuevering Michelle Obama to replace Hillary!

I don't think he really comes up with detailed schemes for stuff outside his immediate orbit. He's never been a big-picture guy (except in a vague hate-whitey sense) and as a small-picture guy his narcissism and disinterest in technical detail leave him with the White House role of signing what his staff puts on his desk but only really tuning in to discuss his predjudices, golf schedule, or lunch menu. His shallow political desires get somewhat translated to policy just because there are always folks on his staff to propose specific programs to meet Obama's simplistic criteria, then the Lightworker chooses among those and signs the appropriate memos.

    As far as the nature of Clinton's affliction, I'm torn between three choices:

    1) Something cardiac related. The fainting sort of makes sense with this, and some think Hillary is wearing a defibrillator vest or has an implanted defibrillator.

    2) Alcohol. One of the reports described her as 'combative' at the 9/11 ceremony. Maybe she showed up badly hung over. This sorta makes sense if you think the anonymous party elders floating the idea of a replacement at this stage are horrified at the idea of an alcoholic President.

    3) Something neurological as an outside choice. Permanent damage from the concussion, maybe.

    I wouldn't be surprised if there's other stuff, such as her wearing a foley catheter. Really, her wardrobe raises enormous questions. Even Madeline Albright, who is a hefty gal, dressed better. Hillary is one step short of wearing mu-mus.

    My guess is the Democrats would have to give it to a black again like Corey Booker because the totem stack is too strong and white liberals are pussies. Bernie earned it but he lacks the killer instinct and someone would grab the 'microphone' like BLM did to him.

    The Democrats might be looking at a strategy like their not so distant cousins the greens have been pursuing where they get a Jewish front person (Stein / Nader) with a V.P. radical ethnic like Wynona La Duke or the new guy Ajamu Baraka as a life insurance policy.

  172. An affiliate of ABC News in New York reported Hillary died yesterday, but apparently she’s getting better. She looked twenty years younger and thirty pounds lighter 90 minutes after collapsing. Donna Brazile will have to weigh all the factors of a replacement if Hillary’s death becomes an issue in this campaign. I’m sure she’ll be happy to support any black candidate like Mrs. Obama, Corey Booker or Jesse Jackson. Bernie Sanders quit the Democratic Party so he pissed away any chance of getting the spot. Tim Kaine doesn’t have the insider connections to fight off big party challengers. Debbie Wasserman Schulz would have put Lizzie Warren in there for sure. She’s the only one who can keep the whole Historic Woman President thing going. I’m pretty sure “Michelle” is a tranny.

    ...but how does the new Democrat (and new VP candidate) get on the ballot in all 50 states?
     
    I don't mean to pick on you in particular, because I've seen a lot of people raise this point over the last 12-24 hours, but in point of fact it just doesn't matter. For one thing, Kaine is already on the ballot as the vice presidential nominee. When you cast your vote for president, you are voting for the ticket not the individual, and Kaine is the number two man on the ticket. If Hillary died or withdrew, then in the absence of any other action (i.e. the proffered second Dem convention), all of Hillary's votes would naturally escheat to Kaine.

    Secondly, if the DNC does convene and choose another candidate, balloting deadlines are not going to make a lick of difference. The purpose of the deadlines is only to prevent late-coming challengers from making a fiasco out of the election. Neither logically nor legally does it make any sense that one of the major parties would be denied ballot representation just because their chosen candidate happened to die before Election Day. Even if they used the actual ballots that still had the "Clinton-Kaine (D)" bubbles printed on them, those votes would be presumed to go to the new Democratic candidate.

    In short, the vote is for the party not the person.

    That Brazile is a black woman working for the leading Democratic candidate has been called the "icing on the cake." And she knows that people are quietly asking: Is she really at the table? Is she truly running the campaign?

    She is in that perilous and burdensome position of being a "first," and she both fights the symbolism and embraces the position. The last reason Gore chose her, she says, was her race and gender. But the reality is that in this world, the only time race and gender don't matter is . . . never.

    "A black female in America is the most invisible object in the world," Brazil says. She will not let the "white boys" win. And that's not a description of "gender or race, it's an attitude. A white-boy attitude is 'I must exclude, denigrate and leave behind,' " Brazile says. "They don't see it or think about it. It's a culture." It is the sense of utter entitlement. And that she will not have.

    So, if the DNC replaces the candidate this late in the game, that’d look pretty bad. I’d say Trump has at least 2/3 chance of winning. Since there’s a cumulative 5% chance of a non-Hillary Democrat, the market’s implying 15%+ chance of Clinton being dropped from the ticket.

It’s like egos rule and nothing else, maybe autism….not much difference as far as Hillary – maybe that is your point: to point out all the self-serving pontificaters on your blog? Divide and Conquer was a tactic…and, petty anonymous people on blogs who want to fight with other posters who are inconveniently, on the same side of an issue, are just…dirt…scum.

    "Most White Nationalists are White Nationalists. Economic issues are irrelevant.

    I guarantee you most White Nationalists would rather live in a dog-eat-dog, crony-capitalist, even feudalistic system as long as it was all-white. As opposed to a multi-culti, Bernie style socialist system where they work to support non-white loafers instead of white elites.

    That’s kinda the definition of White Nationalist."

    The White Nationalists I have seen on the Internet all say they are strongly pro-union and anti-right to work states. White Nationalists are basically Democrats on economic issues. Almost all White Nationalists would be voting for Crooked Hildabeast if she wasn't for open borders.

    It doesn't matter if Hillary's name is still on the ballot on November 8. The voters do not choose the president. The electors of the Electoral College make the decision.

    Any Elector pledged to Hillary can be assumed loyal enough to cast their vote for whomever the DNC picks as her replacement.

    I have wondered whether the Trump electors are dedicated to him personally, or are just RNC approved hacks. I can easily imagine faithless electors in either a tie or narrow margin victory. In the first scenario voting for Hillary, and in the second voting for Paul Ryan to ensure the House can execute a coup.

    I forgot to say that an appointed Vice President must be approved by the Senate and House. Its all in the 25th amendment.

    There was always something a little weird about the Agnew resignation. The Democrats were close to getting rid of Nixon, but needed to do some housecleaning to grease the skids. As far as the part that struck me as odd -- it seemed like the Agnew deal was rushed through in record time, and before it was fully ready to go.

    This is the Wikipedia version.

    On October 10, 1973, Spiro Agnew became the second Vice President to resign the office. Unlike John C. Calhoun, who resigned to take a seat in the Senate, Agnew resigned and then pleaded no contest to criminal charges of tax evasion,[32] part of a negotiated resolution to a scheme wherein he was accused of accepting more than $100,000 in bribes[33] during his tenure as governor of Maryland. Agnew was fined $10,000 and received three years' probation.[34] The $10,000 fine covered only the taxes and interest due on what was "unreported income" from 1967. The plea bargain was later mocked by former Maryland Attorney General Stephen H. Sachs as "the greatest deal since the Lord spared Isaac on the mountaintop."

    His memoir was titled, Go Quietly or Else. Which he claimed that Alexander Haig told him. All in all, a deal where you only have to pay taxes on your bribe money sounds good.

    "What about whiskey’s prediction of the past several years? Recall he told us on several occasions that obama would declare martial law, or something like it, and remain in office."

    If any of his other predictions pan out - if we are invaded by hordes of ISIS commandos hitting the beaches of New Jersey in Kodiak boats, or if James Cameron goes bankrupt because Avatar turns out to have been a collossal flop after seven years - I'll start to get nervous.

    Avatar wasn’t a flop. It just didn’t make money. You notice Cameron/Fox have not exactly moved fast to create a sequel. There are sequels to Guardians of the Galaxy, there have been what, fifteen Fast and Furious movies, a zillion Marvel movies, even finally a bunch of DC movies.

    Avatar cost way too much, depended on vastly inflated 3-D ticket prices people can’t/won’t afford in harder times, and was a gimmick without plot or the critical ability to sell lots of toys. You don’t see little girls lining up for the merch like they do with Frozen or little boys clamoring for Avatar toys like they do Marvel toys.

    Avatar was very mildly profitable at best, with its enormous capital requirements it is a terrible risk; even Fox can’t afford a flop with a budget well over $500 million at least in total production and marketing; only Disney can handle that sort of risk. If another movie is ever made it will take years, for the CGI production cost to come down enough that the risk is closer to $200 million in total cost.

    We will certainly have more ISIS attacks, both lone wolves and organized attacks like 9/11.
    Particularly as Assad/Iran/Russia pushes them back out of areas, they have every incentive to do so and a porous border makes smuggling people and things like weaponized drones easy.

    Yeah sure, Obama’s people have already floated out trial balloons in the media along the lines of “what if Putin hacks the election results, wouldn’t we have to suspend elections?” Ed Luce in today’s FT treads close to that line, which I’ve seen linked off Drudge to WaPo and other favored media outlets.

    Obama is NOT an American. He’s a cultural Indonesian/Hawaiian fantasizing about being an African Big Man. He’d LOVE to stay in office forever and have White people bow down and grovel every day to him, which is his main motivation.

    The big struggle is the House of Clinton vs. the House of Obama. The FT noted today that the Clinton Machine comprises really all of the Dem Party; however as the sitting two term Democratic and Black President, Obama matches her in power and has no incentive to just hand it over. I could see him manuevering Michelle Obama to replace Hillary!

    The point being that we have had some succession issues before and they worked out -- 'they' being elites that transcend political party.

    I don't doubt that Haig actually told Agnew he would be drawn and quartered.

    The beauty of keeping a comatose Hillary on the ballot is to avoid the issue of 50 State Ballots. And a disabled Hillary, even in the office of the Presidency, could still get the Alexander Haig treatment. The 'or else' would be ... I don't know .... maybe something with the foundation that would ruin them both financially and get Bill thrown in jail. There is no shortage of possibilities.

    Maybe it is just me, but the sleaziest deal the Clintons have been involved with was the Marc Rich pardon. In fact, Clinton had to wait until his last day in office, when they both should have fully concentrated on stealing the White House silverware. What is the price to pardon the unibomber?

    If Hillary dies? I don't know, but it seems like pounding on the principle of continuity of succession would be the best strategy.

    I’m no ska expert, but I love the (English) Beat’s hits “Mirror In The Bathroom” and “Too Nice to Talk To.” That echoing, dubby slickness is sublime. Good introspective, paranoid lyrics. Definitely “one step beyond” pedestrian party music. But not so manic as to descend into Madness. Okay I’ll shaddup now.

    I never understood why the skinheads (presumably uber White nationalists) in the UK took to the ska revival in such a big way.
     
    Because the music was energetic? My impression is that skins of that era, whether racist or not, liked to drink/party/brawl above all else. So both racist skins and SHARPs would meet, crack skulls and have a merry old time. The music itself was a hybrid (again, I’m no expert) that no particular racial group could solely claim. But yeah, there is a dissonance. By contrast, the overtly politically left American hardcore scene was almost uniformly white.

    That was a good one-liner, so I'm sorry to be pedantic, but Thomas Jefferson was certainly not the father of Sally Hemings's first child (the one he was originally rumored to have fathered), and probably not the father of Hemings's last child (born when TJ was 62). The former was established by DNA evidence, and the latter is supported by common sense: Hemings's children paternity had become a political liability for Jefferson several years previously, so it would have been suicidally reckless for Jefferson to do exactly what his enemies claimed he did after they claimed he did it. Suicidal recklessness was not part of Jefferson's personality otherwise. There were many other Jefferson men in Virginia who more plausibly could have sired Hemings's youngest.

    First off (karma biting her in the arse) Hillary resigning from the ticket will not play out for at least 2-4 weeks. She will not be leaving tomorrow, why should she? Early absentee ballot voting has already begun in some states and counties, ballots for Nov 8th are being printed up as we speak. If Tim Kaine became the Dems new presidential candidate in three weeks he would not be able to get on the ballot in half the US counties.
     
    He doesn't have to get on the ballot.

    So Hill will be out and Tim Kaine will be the Dems write in candidate? Please explain.

    I predict this Wikileaks dump will amount to nothing but a dry fart. Wikileaks is about nothing more than the ego of Julian Assange.

    Regrettably I agree that Assange will find no smoking gun in any emails. The Clinton Conglomerate is probably too experienced at that kind of thing to get any conspiracy / crimes recorded in writing. On the other hand a recorded conversation like the one of Victoria Nuland on US involvement in Ukraine might be more interesting.

    I understand skinheads were not originally political - more generally punk and working class anti-establishment - and were not originally white nationalist either. I think the latter was associated with a particular subset of skinheads in the late 1970s/1980s, who were more likely to be Skrewdriver oriented rather than ska. At the time, though, the big issue for the media was the conflict created by the elite attempt (successful, as it turned out) to suppress nationalism and to taboo-ise moderate racism in Britain, by conflating both with extreme racism and thereby justifying the outright violence used by the left, so the minority of skinheads associated with nationalism were highlighted by the media in full moral panic mode.

    the Skinhead style was adopted/adapted/appropriated from certain section of the Jamaican immigrants, from the so called Rude Boys, the original skinheads were big fans of Jamaican music and kept the Jamaican music industry afloat.

    In 60s there were mixed groups of skinheads and rude boys who indulged in beating muzzies, the hobby was called Paki Bashing ...

    Skinheadism was a more macho working class youth culture than the Modism, but it wasn't originally "White Nationalistic", that's a later metamorphosis.

    When the Jamaican music transformed from ska to the lazy, stoned beats of reggae, the skinheads didn't like it anymore so much but on the other hand, the original punk rockers felt affinity to reggae, a phenomen than used to puzzle me ... The Clash dabbled with reggae beats from the start, and John Lydon's PIL had heavy dub reggae infuences ...

    I forgot to say that an appointed Vice President must be approved by the Senate and House. Its all in the 25th amendment.

    There was always something a little weird about the Agnew resignation. The Democrats were close to getting rid of Nixon, but needed to do some housecleaning to grease the skids. As far as the part that struck me as odd -- it seemed like the Agnew deal was rushed through in record time, and before it was fully ready to go.

    This is the Wikipedia version.

    On October 10, 1973, Spiro Agnew became the second Vice President to resign the office. Unlike John C. Calhoun, who resigned to take a seat in the Senate, Agnew resigned and then pleaded no contest to criminal charges of tax evasion,[32] part of a negotiated resolution to a scheme wherein he was accused of accepting more than $100,000 in bribes[33] during his tenure as governor of Maryland. Agnew was fined $10,000 and received three years' probation.[34] The $10,000 fine covered only the taxes and interest due on what was "unreported income" from 1967. The plea bargain was later mocked by former Maryland Attorney General Stephen H. Sachs as "the greatest deal since the Lord spared Isaac on the mountaintop."

    His memoir was titled, Go Quietly or Else. Which he claimed that Alexander Haig told him. All in all, a deal where you only have to pay taxes on your bribe money sounds good.

    The point being that we have had some succession issues before and they worked out — ‘they’ being elites that transcend political party.

    I don’t doubt that Haig actually told Agnew he would be drawn and quartered.

    The beauty of keeping a comatose Hillary on the ballot is to avoid the issue of 50 State Ballots. And a disabled Hillary, even in the office of the Presidency, could still get the Alexander Haig treatment. The ‘or else’ would be … I don’t know …. maybe something with the foundation that would ruin them both financially and get Bill thrown in jail. There is no shortage of possibilities.

    Maybe it is just me, but the sleaziest deal the Clintons have been involved with was the Marc Rich pardon. In fact, Clinton had to wait until his last day in office, when they both should have fully concentrated on stealing the White House silverware. What is the price to pardon the unibomber?

    If Hillary dies? I don’t know, but it seems like pounding on the principle of continuity of succession would be the best strategy.

  229. @NJ Transit Commuter
    The president is elected by the Electoral College, right? So what difference does it make whose name is on the ballot? Electors meet in each state to cast their ballots on December 19. Prior to that date, if the Democratic Party instructs Democratic Electors to vote for an HRC replacement, can't they do so?

    Gotta be someone out there that knows more about Constitutional law than I do, but wouldn't this scenario work?

    Yes, but the electors are not legally obligated to follow that directive. Of course, since electors tend to be party hacks, that is probably a moot point.

  230. @The Millennial Falcon
    I'm surprised the Democrats haven't been grooming more celebs for higher office. I guess they figure the media will turn any of their choices into stars.

    With all the talented entertainers who lean or leap left, how is it that the Dems were stuck choosing between a slouchy socialist with bad hair and a massively unpleasant lady gargoyle with enormous baggage? It's not like there's not enough money or fame in politics.

    But the closest thing to a major entertainer to crossover that I can think of is the gremlin-looking Al Franken with his hilarious voice.

    Susan Sarandon, Annette Bening, Ellen DeGeneres, Meryl Streep, Oprah Winfrey, Glenn Close, Sigourney Weaver, Jamie Lee Curtis, Cher - how have they not recruited any of these women?

    Why is it the GOP that recruits all the actors and celebrities as candidates - Reagan, Arnold, Bono, Thompson, Trump?

    I’m no ska expert, but I love the (English) Beat’s hits “Mirror In The Bathroom” and “Too Nice to Talk To.” That echoing, dubby slickness is sublime. Good introspective, paranoid lyrics. Definitely “one step beyond” pedestrian party music. But not so manic as to descend into Madness. Okay I’ll shaddup now.

    I never understood why the skinheads (presumably uber White nationalists) in the UK took to the ska revival in such a big way.

    Because the music was energetic? My impression is that skins of that era, whether racist or not, liked to drink/party/brawl above all else. So both racist skins and SHARPs would meet, crack skulls and have a merry old time. The music itself was a hybrid (again, I’m no expert) that no particular racial group could solely claim. But yeah, there is a dissonance. By contrast, the overtly politically left American hardcore scene was almost uniformly white.

    Miranda and Booker also apotheose the eugenics formula the left/Dems have been pushing for the past 60 years:

    That black DNA can be quietly, politely, PCly shouldered aside through glorified, sanctified, state mandated race mixing where "black" and "success" are redefined as admixture of individuals, neighborhoods, metropolitan statistical districts, nations, and workforces.

    "You can't accuse us of racism anymore--we blurred the boundaries!!!"

    (Blacks of older US ancestry are likely nearly all admixed, parallel with how successful blacks are likely nearly all in mostly white and richer areas. But we aren't allowed to note that, never mind measure it at the DNA level.)

    This accounts for a large part of the leukophobic hysteria. Anything white is dissenting from this utopian eugenic formula that dare not speak its name. The resultant black undertow? Yes, very unfortunate. But they're a) potential voters and b) certain shock troops. Here. Have some more tax dollars to produce more!

    Wall Street would pour money on Miranda as a nonwhite (but don't give up your tanning salon subscription, Lin-Manuel) who loves Wall Street.

    Silicon Valley and Wall Street like Cory Booker for similar reasons.

    The more I think about this, the more Miranda seems like a dream candidate for the Democrats in 12 to 24 years. Of all the entertainer celebrities, who is more likely to be a strong nuts and bolts politician than a guy who has helped out his dad in managing campaigns? And who else is as good at glamorizing political history? I brought up Affleck, since "Argo" was intended to help Jimmy Carter's reputation. But what Miranda has done for Alexander Hamilton's Q Score is amazing.

    The guy is a writer and a performer. Everybody in New York loves this guy.

    If he continues to compose blockbuster Broadway hits, I'm sure he'll stick to entertainment. But what if his next couple of shows aren't as well-received? He's already set for life from royalties from Hamilton when it becomes a high school musical staple. Maybe when he's 45 he gets interested in the family business of politics?

    One issue is that it's hard to get elected to the Senate from New York because there are so many celebrities, including out of towners like Hillary and RFK who want to be Senator from New York.

    “Wall Street would pour money on Miranda as a nonwhite (but don’t give up your tanning salon subscription, Lin-Manuel) who loves Wall Street.”

    Gavin McInnes said he thinks Lin-Manuel Miranda looks White. But his definition of White is more broad and not so narrow, after all he also said he considers his own kids to be White even though they have some Amerindian ancestry which they got from their mother/his wife.

This latest “health episode” of HRC I suspect raises hopes that the fall of the house of Clinton is finally underway. But even if Hillary has to cry “No Más” the DNC Junta will foist one of the eager vicious demagogues it holds in reserve to continue the demolition. The crude, slanderous meme is already in place — Trump is a water carrier for the Klan — so any hack can run with it.

    Is Pat Buchanan well liked by other insiders? My impression has always been he was not well liked by the insiders.

    The biggest factor in selecting a replacement would be how much influence the Clinton cronies have in the DNC and who is in the best position to pay them off. They would need to be well organized as there seems to be a significant anti-Clinton faction in the party that could get someone else selected if they are divided.

    Any speculation as to why Obama didn't do more during his eight years in office to control the Clinton's influence in the party and have the future leadership of the party have more loyalty to him than the Clintons? Was is sheer laziness or were they that well entrenched he couldn't do anything about it?

    Avatar wasn't a flop. It just didn't make money. You notice Cameron/Fox have not exactly moved fast to create a sequel. There are sequels to Guardians of the Galaxy, there have been what, fifteen Fast and Furious movies, a zillion Marvel movies, even finally a bunch of DC movies.

    Avatar cost way too much, depended on vastly inflated 3-D ticket prices people can't/won't afford in harder times, and was a gimmick without plot or the critical ability to sell lots of toys. You don't see little girls lining up for the merch like they do with Frozen or little boys clamoring for Avatar toys like they do Marvel toys.

    Avatar was very mildly profitable at best, with its enormous capital requirements it is a terrible risk; even Fox can't afford a flop with a budget well over $500 million at least in total production and marketing; only Disney can handle that sort of risk. If another movie is ever made it will take years, for the CGI production cost to come down enough that the risk is closer to $200 million in total cost.

    We will certainly have more ISIS attacks, both lone wolves and organized attacks like 9/11.
    Particularly as Assad/Iran/Russia pushes them back out of areas, they have every incentive to do so and a porous border makes smuggling people and things like weaponized drones easy.

    Yeah sure, Obama's people have already floated out trial balloons in the media along the lines of "what if Putin hacks the election results, wouldn't we have to suspend elections?" Ed Luce in today's FT treads close to that line, which I've seen linked off Drudge to WaPo and other favored media outlets.

    Obama is NOT an American. He's a cultural Indonesian/Hawaiian fantasizing about being an African Big Man. He'd LOVE to stay in office forever and have White people bow down and grovel every day to him, which is his main motivation.

    The big struggle is the House of Clinton vs. the House of Obama. The FT noted today that the Clinton Machine comprises really all of the Dem Party; however as the sitting two term Democratic and Black President, Obama matches her in power and has no incentive to just hand it over. I could see him manuevering Michelle Obama to replace Hillary!

    “Avatar wasn’t a flop. It just didn’t make money. You notice Cameron/Fox have not exactly moved fast to create a sequel.”

    Cameron didn’t move fast to make a sequel to “The Terminator” either. Were the Terminator movies flops? Did they not make money?

    “We will certainly have more ISIS attacks, both lone wolves and organized attacks like 9/11. Particularly as Assad/Iran/Russia pushes them back out of areas, they have every incentive to do so and a porous border makes smuggling people and things like weaponized drones easy.”

    You were not predicting that they would enter through a porous boder. You were (very specifically) predicting that they would land on American beaches in zodiac boats.

  262. Clinton had told police officials that she didn’t want the escort at all, but the NYPD overruled that request, the source added.

    Imperial New York strikes again. This time, the Praetorian Guard. It’s interesting to speculate whether this would be leaking if not for Dem idiot mayor Deblasio, and the ill-feeling he’s created among NYPD with his BLM politics. Of course, any city other than NYC, this would be a lot less likely; NYPD are NYPD, in NYC, they don’t need the Secret Service (lol, who? Do they have operatives in west Asia? Cuz NYPD does.) going off res on their turf. PD in palookaville would be compliant.

    And, if you have pneumonia, you don’t go and infect other people.

    The idea that Hillary was diagnosed with pneumonia on Friday, and on the following Sunday her team still hadn’t absorbed the fact to the extent necessary to understand the optics of her kissing babies for the cameras? Simply not plausible. Doesn’t matter if she was contagious or not, no way she’d risk losing low-information votes like that. No, the pneumonia story was concocted in the field and on the fly, after she kissed babies, because “overheated” wasn’t working.

    So, unless she drops dead before the election in November, she is still running, and she most likely is going to win based on current polls and past election trends, although I won’t be surprised nor shocked if Trump manages to pull off the upset.

    Nice hedge at the end there. She’s bleeding out (politically, she’s bleeding out politically!).

The former was established by DNA evidence, and the latter is supported by common sense: Hemings’s children paternity had become a political liability for Jefferson several years previously, so it would have been suicidally reckless for Jefferson to do exactly what his enemies claimed he did after they claimed he did it. Suicidal recklessness was not part of Jefferson’s personality otherwise. There were many other Jefferson men in Virginia who more plausibly could have sired Hemings’s youngest.

    Right. And Bill Clinton promoted this slime against one of the greatest Americans who ever lived just to distract from his diddling Monica. Everything I've read says that BJC is immensely likable is person, but he is a stone cold amoral sociopath. Having said that, I would gladly vote for him over his evil wife.

    Agreed. Jefferson's nephew Randolph certainly fits the bill as first hand accounts from plantation slaves makes quite clear that he was more outgoing, gregarious, liked to drink, dance, etc. in the company of slaves. If anything, that's a way of saying that Randolph was more the ladies man than Thomas.

    Also, it is very very telling that Thomas Jefferson did not free all of his slaves in his will. One slave in particular whom he did not set free was Sally Hennings.

    Also, it is unfortunate but most likely accurate that (perhaps) due to her being an octoroon or something along those lines (a person who could most likely "pass" in white society), that Sally was, in today's parlance, something of a slut. She had many kids and most likely to different men. Obviously some slack has to be extended. She was in fact a slave, though a house slave and not a field slave, and thus had more contact with the white higher ups, not the foremen. When she was in her teenage yrs she accompanied Jefferson to Paris (along with Jefferson's daughter) so she was definitely a trusted servant. It is just as plausible that Jefferson had a dalliance or two in Paris with a Parisian as he was fluent in French.

    Given the role of intellectual pursuits in his private life, Thomas Jefferson doesn't appear to be the kind of person who would "settle" for a semi-literate slave to be his mistress but rather someone who had a lot on the ball from an intellectual standpoint. Another thing that's usually overlooked but was recently brought to light in Jared Taylor's "What the Founders really though on Race" is that Thomas Jefferson had STRONG, very STRONG views regarding black people; from a 21st century perspective they weren't very charitable. Therefore its entirely unlikely that given how he felt regarding black people in general that he would have had a sexual dalliance with one of his slaves. That would've been totally unthinkable for someone such as himself whereas it would've been just fine for his nephew Randolph, who was about twenty yrs younger and had ample opportunities as he was often seen on the plantation and in the company of plantation slaves, including at night--something a high bred gentleman of Virginia typically wouldn't have done, especially at that time in US History.

    As far as the nature of Clinton's affliction, I'm torn between three choices:

    1) Something cardiac related. The fainting sort of makes sense with this, and some think Hillary is wearing a defibrillator vest or has an implanted defibrillator.

    2) Alcohol. One of the reports described her as 'combative' at the 9/11 ceremony. Maybe she showed up badly hung over. This sorta makes sense if you think the anonymous party elders floating the idea of a replacement at this stage are horrified at the idea of an alcoholic President.

    3) Something neurological as an outside choice. Permanent damage from the concussion, maybe.

    I wouldn't be surprised if there's other stuff, such as her wearing a foley catheter. Really, her wardrobe raises enormous questions. Even Madeline Albright, who is a hefty gal, dressed better. Hillary is one step short of wearing mu-mus.

    "Thomas Jefferson probably qualifies"
     
    That was a good one-liner, so I'm sorry to be pedantic, but Thomas Jefferson was certainly not the father of Sally Hemings's first child (the one he was originally rumored to have fathered), and probably not the father of Hemings's last child (born when TJ was 62). The former was established by DNA evidence, and the latter is supported by common sense: Hemings's children paternity had become a political liability for Jefferson several years previously, so it would have been suicidally reckless for Jefferson to do exactly what his enemies claimed he did after they claimed he did it. Suicidal recklessness was not part of Jefferson's personality otherwise. There were many other Jefferson men in Virginia who more plausibly could have sired Hemings's youngest.

    Yes, I know the media always says the opposite of this, but you should know by now that whatever the press says is likely not only to be untrue, but the opposite of the truth. Yes, it's gotten that bad.

    Right. And Bill Clinton promoted this slime against one of the greatest Americans who ever lived just to distract from his diddling Monica. Everything I’ve read says that BJC is immensely likable is person, but he is a stone cold amoral sociopath. Having said that, I would gladly vote for him over his evil wife.

    "Neither Warren or Sanders will ever be allowed near the levers of power, and for good reason. I’d rather see Clinton president than either of the obnoxious grifters."

    Why do you like Crooked Hildabeast more than Bernie Sanders? A president Bernie Sanders would not start a war with Vladimir Putin & Russia. Bernie Sanders is a classical old school Liberal in that he is anti-invade the world just like Code Pink and The Dixie Chicks.

    Good thing that the kleptocrat known as Sanders voted for Iraq War I, our Libyan intervention, and the War on Terror. Amnesty and open borders for Central American “refugees” can be added to the list as well. He’ll sell out the American worker and repeat his past performance of embezzling other people’s money for his wife and daughter, only this time on a federal scale. Clinton is terrible, but her corruption is markedly more palatable than Sanders’.

    I found the comment:

    That Brazile is a black woman working for the leading Democratic candidate has been called the "icing on the cake." And she knows that people are quietly asking: Is she really at the table? Is she truly running the campaign?

    She is in that perilous and burdensome position of being a "first," and she both fights the symbolism and embraces the position. The last reason Gore chose her, she says, was her race and gender. But the reality is that in this world, the only time race and gender don't matter is . . . never.

    "A black female in America is the most invisible object in the world," Brazil says. She will not let the "white boys" win. And that's not a description of "gender or race, it's an attitude. A white-boy attitude is 'I must exclude, denigrate and leave behind,' " Brazile says. "They don't see it or think about it. It's a culture." It is the sense of utter entitlement. And that she will not have.
     

    So I was right, she is a race woman, and race matters to her. Let’s hope she would have the courage of her convictions to choose an obviously pro and open BLM supporter if not a black candidate. After all, for the moment, she is holding a very important card of power: The ability to directly influence her party’s selection of a presidential candidate should Hillary have to resign is also a major opportunity to choose someone on the side of BLM and ultimately, her race.

  271. @Yojimbo/Zatoichi
    Does the twenty-third amendment come into play? Biden has been VP for eight yrs, but he's also been part of an administration for eight yrs (as Obama is term limited by the 23rd Amendment) but I thought that the VP was limited by the 23 Amendment as well. Or perhaps not. Of course choosing Biden would be giving third term to Obama, but would that satisfy the Sanders voters who may believe that their candidate should be allowed to step up and fill the void. After all, he nearly won the nomination (at least in their minds).

    Perhaps the option that is most fair to the people who voted in the democrat primaries would be Bernie Sanders / Tim Kaine.

    But as others here have remarked, it seems highly unlikely that the dems would run two white European-American men (much of the electorate would count Sanders as white). The Democrats must be concerned, probably rightly, that black turnout would be too low without someone who is at least part black on the ticket again,

    Might the Dems go with Tim Kaine / military-veteran WOMAN ? A woman in the veep spot could get the (unmarried) white women who were going heavily to vote for Shrillery to still turn out in droves. Tammy Duckworth has been a congresswoman only since 2013 and is running for US Senate now, so she’s probably not portrayable as “ready.” But she’s a woman, Asian, from a larger State (Illinois), served as director of the State veterans department and asst director of federal VA, and was grievously injured (lost both legs) as a US Army helicopter pilot in Iraq. Just throwing a dark horse out there, though she would be much likelier in 2020 with a few years in the US Senate on the resume.

    Ah, no matter whom the Dems pick if Shrillery drops out, I’m for Trump.

    Agreed. Jefferson’s nephew Randolph certainly fits the bill as first hand accounts from plantation slaves makes quite clear that he was more outgoing, gregarious, liked to drink, dance, etc. in the company of slaves. If anything, that’s a way of saying that Randolph was more the ladies man than Thomas.

    Also, it is very very telling that Thomas Jefferson did not free all of his slaves in his will. One slave in particular whom he did not set free was Sally Hennings.

    Also, it is unfortunate but most likely accurate that (perhaps) due to her being an octoroon or something along those lines (a person who could most likely “pass” in white society), that Sally was, in today’s parlance, something of a slut. She had many kids and most likely to different men. Obviously some slack has to be extended. She was in fact a slave, though a house slave and not a field slave, and thus had more contact with the white higher ups, not the foremen. When she was in her teenage yrs she accompanied Jefferson to Paris (along with Jefferson’s daughter) so she was definitely a trusted servant. It is just as plausible that Jefferson had a dalliance or two in Paris with a Parisian as he was fluent in French.

    Given the role of intellectual pursuits in his private life, Thomas Jefferson doesn’t appear to be the kind of person who would “settle” for a semi-literate slave to be his mistress but rather someone who had a lot on the ball from an intellectual standpoint. Another thing that’s usually overlooked but was recently brought to light in Jared Taylor’s “What the Founders really though on Race” is that Thomas Jefferson had STRONG, very STRONG views regarding black people; from a 21st century perspective they weren’t very charitable. Therefore its entirely unlikely that given how he felt regarding black people in general that he would have had a sexual dalliance with one of his slaves. That would’ve been totally unthinkable for someone such as himself whereas it would’ve been just fine for his nephew Randolph, who was about twenty yrs younger and had ample opportunities as he was often seen on the plantation and in the company of plantation slaves, including at night–something a high bred gentleman of Virginia typically wouldn’t have done, especially at that time in US History.

    Wall Street would pour money on Miranda as a nonwhite (but don't give up your tanning salon subscription, Lin-Manuel) who loves Wall Street.

    Silicon Valley and Wall Street like Cory Booker for similar reasons.

    The more I think about this, the more Miranda seems like a dream candidate for the Democrats in 12 to 24 years. Of all the entertainer celebrities, who is more likely to be a strong nuts and bolts politician than a guy who has helped out his dad in managing campaigns? And who else is as good at glamorizing political history? I brought up Affleck, since "Argo" was intended to help Jimmy Carter's reputation. But what Miranda has done for Alexander Hamilton's Q Score is amazing.

    The guy is a writer and a performer. Everybody in New York loves this guy.

    If he continues to compose blockbuster Broadway hits, I'm sure he'll stick to entertainment. But what if his next couple of shows aren't as well-received? He's already set for life from royalties from Hamilton when it becomes a high school musical staple. Maybe when he's 45 he gets interested in the family business of politics?

    One issue is that it's hard to get elected to the Senate from New York because there are so many celebrities, including out of towners like Hillary and RFK who want to be Senator from New York.

    Miranda and Booker also apotheose the eugenics formula the left/Dems have been pushing for the past 60 years:

    That black DNA can be quietly, politely, PCly shouldered aside through glorified, sanctified, state mandated race mixing where “black” and “success” are redefined as admixture of individuals, neighborhoods, metropolitan statistical districts, nations, and workforces.

    “You can’t accuse us of racism anymore–we blurred the boundaries!!!”

    (Blacks of older US ancestry are likely nearly all admixed, parallel with how successful blacks are likely nearly all in mostly white and richer areas. But we aren’t allowed to note that, never mind measure it at the DNA level.)

    This accounts for a large part of the leukophobic hysteria. Anything white is dissenting from this utopian eugenic formula that dare not speak its name. The resultant black undertow? Yes, very unfortunate. But they’re a) potential voters and b) certain shock troops. Here. Have some more tax dollars to produce more!

    And who else is as good at glamorizing political history?

    Agreed, but I thought they hired MarComm, PoliSci, and Ed grads for that sort of thing.

    One issue is that it’s hard to get elected to the Senate from New York because there are so many celebrities, including out of towners like Hillary and RFK who want to be Senator from New York.

    If you're Trump, you're hoping Hillary is healthy enough to make it through the next 60 days.

    If Hillary drops out, she could be replaced by a more popular Democrat, like Kaine or Biden. It might be too late to change public opinion if that happens. With Hillary, she's mortally wounded enough that she might be the easiest opponent to beat.

    While it would be hard to find a Democrat with more negatives than Hillary, an replacement would just have a new set of negatives. A replacement would have a massive uphill battle in organizing, dealing with factions, all while stinking of desperation.

    Or to put it another way, Clinton may be certifiably unelectable, but a replacement would be presumably unelectable. Whether its on white bread, rye, or whole wheat the dems still have to eat a crap sammich.

    Biden is a logical choice: nice, friendly, not too extreme (although a white male). Sanders and Warren are too far left, too unpleasant, too white.

Even McInnes brags about it while in the past he might have hidden it (although for some reason having a little Amerindian blood was always OK).

    “People who identify with the majority culture always think of THEMSELVES and their families as white. In Brazil there are people who are blacker than Obama who consider themselves to be white.”

    Do you have any evidence of this? Barack Hussein Obama is not considered White in Brazil, let alone someone Blacker than him.

    Do you think the average Brazilian has blue Black skin like Sudanese Dinka Alek Wek? Is that why you believe Barack is considered White in Brazil?
