2016 Election Tag

What can you say about soon-to-be-former governor of New Jersey Chris Christie?  At one time, it seemed his star was rising, that he was destined for the White House.  That is the historical moment to which Christie apparently clings. Christie, who leaves office—and almost certainly any political future—on January 16th, believes that if President Trump had not run in 2016, he'd be president today.

It's hard not to feel sorry for Hillary Clinton at times.  Here she was the heir apparent to the White House, a long-time party go-along and malleable puff of air ready to say she believed whatever the driving trend of a given historical moment might be, and at the last minute, her turn was snatched away from her by the American people. She was left spinning, angry and bemused, and she's still not sure what happened. But it's not complicated.  At rock-bottom, it was Hillary's  go-along readiness to manifest Obama's third term and "protect" his legacy, that ever-shifting never-quite-real belief system that Americans rejected. Hillary was for DADT before she was against it, she was for military engagement in the Middle East before she was against it, she pilloried and destroyed women who alleged sexual assaults before she thought they should be believed, she was for more taxes before she was against—and then once more for—them, she supported single-payer healthcare before she didn't (and then did again), she wanted lower taxes before she wanted to gouge the "rich," she was a foreign policy hawk before she was a dove.  The list goes on.  And on.

After Trump's shocking victory in the 2016 presidential election, liberal students on college campuses lost their collective minds. In many cases, so did members of the faculty and administration. Let's take a walk down memory lane and examine some of the best examples.

Today we will have posts at key points during the day and evening retracing the 2016 presidential election day, ending with the late night stunner. Coming into the day, it wasn't supposed to be close. For months the demise of Donald Trump was predicted. This video compilation is pretty amazing, in hindsight:

Disgraced politician Anthony Weiner has reported to the Federal Medical Center Devens in Massachusetts to start his 21-month prison sentence he received for sexting with a minor. Weiner spent his last day of freedom with his father Morton at his Manhattan apartment. His brother Jason dropped him off at the prison.

During the 2016 campaign, there had been a lot of social media speculation about Hillary Clinton's health. That speculation was ridiculed as conspiracy theories and fake news. But when Hillary stumbled and almost fell during the 9/11 memorial, the conspiracy theories didn't seem so conspiratorial anymore. We all remember the infamous video, Clinton Collapse: Hillary rushed away from 9-11 ceremony:

The 2016 election was almost a year ago and the left still has not accepted the outcome. Harvard professor Lawrence Lessig concocted a new plan to put Hillary in the White House and some people are taking it seriously.

It's hard to find an apt comparison in U.S. media for the role that Haaretz plays in Israeli media. Haaretz is "far-left" in its opinion content, but also has some excellent straight news reporting, particularly on security issues. And when I say "far-left," I emphasize "far" in that equation. Reading some of Haaretz's opinion columnists makes it hard to distinguish the paper from anti-Israel Islamist polemicists. Haaretz has little readership in Israel precisely because it has tied its fortunes to the marginalized Israeli left. But Haaretz's English language website has outsized influence in the West, particularly among left-wing Jews in the U.S., who must imagine Haaretz represents a sustantial portion of the Israeli electorate.

Disgraced former Congressman Anthony Weiner has received a 21 month prison sentence for sexting with a 15-year-old girl in North Carolina. He also has to register as a sex offender. His numerous sexting scandals have ruined his career and his marriage to Huma Abedin, failed Democrat presidential candidate Hillary Clinton's long time aide.

Elections officials in Philadelphia discovered that a glitch allowed hundreds of illegal voters to cast ballots in the last decade. From Philly.com:
Commissioner Al Schmidt blamed that on what he said was a PennDot glitch that enabled legal permanent residents to register to vote at kiosks when they applied or renewed for driver’s licenses or registrations.

Failed Democrat presidential candidate Hillary Clinton appeared on NPR's Fresh Air to plug her memoir What Happened. She told host Terry Gross that would not rule out questioning the legitimacy of the 2016 presidential election if more proof comes out that Russia did meddle in the election. Former FBI James Comey also comes up in the conversation and yes, Hillary pointed the finger at him...again.

Disgraced former Democrat Rep. Anthony Weiner's lawyer told a court today that Weiner is not at fault for sexting with a 15-year-old female in North Carolina because she wanted to affect the 2016 presidential election. Weiner's estranged wife is Huma Abedin, failed Democrat presidential candidate Hillary Clinton's closest aide and confidant.

Music to our ears! Failed Democrat presidential candidate Hillary Clinton told CBS Sunday Morning that she is through with being a candidate:
Clinton says her career as an active politician is over but says she will stay involved politically. "I am done with being a candidate. But I am not done with politics because I literally believe that our country's future is at stake," she said.

The longer Hillary insists on staying in the public eye, the more she rattles the already beleaguered Democrat Party. Democrats are not happy with Hillary's upcoming book tour for her memoir What Happened. As the party tries to regroup and reconnect, many think Hillary's blame game will only cause more problems.

People have leaked excerpts from failed Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton's memoir What Happened, which will be released on September 12. In these excerpts, Hillary lashes out at her primary opponent Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) for his actions, which she claims caused "lasting damage" to the party due to his numerous attacks on her.
