Here Is Hillary Clinton as a Planet on a Very Bizarre New York Times Magazine Cover

Sure, why not.

This week’s New York Times Magazine cover focuses on the “gravitational pull” of Hillary Clinton’s possible 2016 campaign. And indeed, it portrays that concept in a pretty literal way by envisioning the former Secretary of State … as a planet. Just her disembodied head fashioned into a fleshy planet.

No, this is not a Photoshop job from a bored Redditor. This is real:

If this is an indicator of the bizarre shenanigans in store for the 2016 election cycle, then we’re pretty excited. Very, very confused, but also excited.

Hillary should retire. We're so tired of seeing her face, hearing her voice, and putting up with her political ambitions. Needs to go home and bake some cookies.

Frankly, I'm sick of seeing either Hillary Clinton's or Jeb Bush's name being discussed as candidates. Is the pool of candidates that small that we have to go back to those wells again. Our government is filled with stagnant, entrenched bureaucrats.

Planet Hillary? Really? I've always thought of her more as a big asstroid, threatening America's existence as a free Republic every four years.

That is the best picture she has taken in years. Her head and butt finally  met into a big blob.

We really need to pass a bill that once you turn 65 you can no longer run for any political office. You can finish your term but you can never run again. So all the Hillary's and John McCain's and Harry Reid's and all their old croney friends will all disappear at the right time in their lives instead of not knowing when to hang it up like they all do. These old miserable people are part of the problem I think. Not the solution. As a matter a fact when is the last time any of them has had a real credible solution to anything?

Yuck, she makes me ill. Time to disconnect the cable till 2017 before you get to see that horrifying face every couple of seconds all over again. That was one good thing in 2013, she was barely in it. It was so nice not having her in our lives for the first time in 20 years. Now she will be like a re-occuring nightmare once again.

Reminds me of a quote from Armageddon:


I wanna name her Dottie after my wife. She's a vicious life-sucking bitch from which there is no escape.

Fickle, as the "Barackster" is now "out"; it seems most of the main stream media has found a new (or has revived an old) love affair!


Hillary, most of your once deserting media is back in the fold, and they now love you again, and they promise to work just as hard for you as they did for Barack Obama! 


All is forgiven because "love means never having to say you're sorry!"

FAQ containing brief answers to common arguments against Hillary Clinton regarding Benghazi

by JT Shroyer

1. No one has been held accountable for Benghazi:

~False. 4 individuals were identified to be at fault in the Accountability Review Board’s (ARB) report, and have been removed from their jobs.  

"…all four individuals identified in the ARB have been removed from their job. Secondly, they’ve been placed on administrative leave while we stepped through the personnel process to determine the next steps.

Third, both Ambassador Pickering and Admiral Mullen specifically highlighted the reason why this is complicated, because under federal statute and regulations, unsatisfactory leadership is not grounds for finding a breach of duty. The ARB did not find these four individuals breached their duty.

So I have submitted legislation to this committee, to the Congress, to fix this problem so future ARBs will not face this situation.” -Secretary of State Hillary Clinton

2. Hillary hasn’t taken responsibility for Benghazi: 

~False. 

"As I have said many times since September 11, I take responsibility. Nobody is more committed to getting this right. I am determined to leave the State Department and our country safer, stronger, and more secure.” -Secretary of State Hillary Clinton

3. Hillary has accepted responsibility with words only:

~False. Hillary launched an Accountability Review Board, removed the 4 individuals identified to be at fault, and implemented the 29 recommendations set forth by the ARB. 

"Since 1988, there have been 19 Accountability Review Boards investigating attacks on American diplomats and their facilities.Benghazi joins a long list of tragedies, for our Department and for other agencies: hostages taken in Tehran in 1979, our embassy and Marine barracks bombed in Beirut in 1983, Khobar Towers in Saudi Arabia in 1996, our embassies in East Africa in 1998, consulate staff murdered in Jeddah in 2004, the Khost attack in 2009, and too many others.


I have accepted every one of their recommendations — and I asked the Deputy Secretary for Management and Resources to lead a task force to ensure that all 29 of them are implemented quickly and completely.”
-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton

4. Hillary Clinton intentionally launched a false narrative about a YouTube video being the cause of Benghazi:

~False. The intelligence community initially thought the YouTube video was related to the Benghazi attack. Hillary Clinton repeated the intelligence communities talking points. 

Violent protests had erupted throughout the Middle East simultaneous to Benghazi. Many of the protests throughout the Middle East and in Cairo revolved around the YouTube video, which is why it was initially thought Benghazi was also related to the YouTube video. We now know that although the attackers in Benghazi weren’t directly connected to the protests revolving around the YouTube video, the unstable environment provided by the protests gave the Benghazi perpetrators an opportunity to launch their attack successfully.

5. The Obama Administration did not call Benghazi a “terrorist attack”:

~False. 

Senator Joe Lieberman: “Let me begin by asking you whether you would say that Ambassador Stevens and the three other Americans died as a result of a terrorist attack?”

Counterterrorism Director Matthew Olsen: “Certainly on that particular question I would say, yes. They were killed in the course of a terrorist attack on our embassy.”

6. Hillary personally denied requests for more security in Benghazi:

~False. 1.43 million cables are sent to the State Department each year. Security requests are handled by security professionals in the State Department. No cables requesting more security reached Hillary’s desk. 

7. The Benghazi attacks were “preventable”: 

~True. Virtually all tragedies are “preventable” with 20/20 hindsight — including the Beirut bombings under Reagan, 9/11/2001, and the 13 embassy attacks under George Bush’s Administration. 

8. Hillary Clinton said, “What difference, at this point, does it make” that 4 men died in Benghazi:                                            

~False. Hillary was referring to the Republican’s obsession with Susan Rice’s talking points, not Benghazi itself.

@lel2007She reminds me of an evil Super massive Black hole.

NOTHING not even light ever escapes its destructive gravitational pull..


I watched a chilling video of her on youtube, where she scared the crap out of a local girl at an Orphanage school in Congo she was visiting. The girl had questioned her on the role of the US (Mining companies and Military) in Congolese internal conflicts.

@JTShroyer So, if she took full responsibility, what was her consequence?


"I take full responsibility" is the oldest trick in the politician's playbook.

@RobertAnderson @JTShroyer : a better question: WHY didn't the jamooks who called for Clinton's head (over a situation that turned out to be caused by lower level Pols and bad decisions by Army -- there were plenty of those when I served), call for criminal charges against "Darth" Cheney and his hand puppet, "Dubya," over the many deaths and many injuries to American soldiers (not to mention all of the civilian, collateral, casualties) incurred in one bogus "war", Iraq, and one needless war, Afghanistan, (especially since we already knew terrorism isn't fought by conventional means, and that the majority of those responsible for the WTC attack came from...Saudi Arabia).


I forget.  What was the consequence for  those two?

Oh, yeah:  paid speaking engagements, a presidential  library, book contracts, etc., etc.   Justice SHOULD be blind, but it should be deaf and dumb as well; and it's scales shouldn't be "fixed" from the get-go.
