Why Is Hillary So Unlikable?


Before the last presidential election Hillary supposedly told her pollsters to shut up, mainly because she didn’t want to hear about how unlikable people considered her.  So in honor of Hillary’s birthday, here is a take on that.  It probably will not be all-inclusive. Readers can help fill in any gaps.

It all starts that she is very selfish; the world revolves around her, and she thinks this is normal and good.  This might not be so much of a problem if people also considered her to be truly behind their cause.  I am sure that some women (.e.g. Andrea Mitchell, Jennifer Granholm) really have convinced themselves of this; but deep down, they probably know better.

Furthermore, Hillary is really not very good at masking this.  The more she tries, the more incompetent she appears.  Voters are not impressed by incompetence, especially in an area that could be considered to be a required job skill for a President.

Finally, this selfish (actually ruthlessly selfish) nature is most unbecoming on a woman.  Supposedly we are all beyond judging women by different standards than fellas; but that is never going to happen.  It is all a convenient fiction.  People have in-built predisposition on how to judge women, and selfishness is most definitely a no-go, both from men and women’s perspective.

P.S. Maggie Thatcher might have had a cold appearance, but behind that everyone could see that she had a bedrock of principles that she believed were beneficial to the common good.

    Hillary is extremely likeable to people who write six-figure checks. They think she’s charming and right on the issues, and she’s expert at reinforcing that cohort’s innate contempt for the unwashed. And I’m speaking with first-hand information here, people. They are really, really fond of her.

    Her failure as a politician is due to her inability to contain her contempt. She — literally — thinks it’s unimportant to be “likeable” to people whose very existence makes her skin crawl.

    A supposition is that FDR, e.g., is a beloved “man of the people” because his era didn’t actually require him to spend time with any of them. And media was even more supine and obfuscatory than today.

    Warren is doing better at lying to her base for a couple of simple reasons. One, and I consider this admirable, she appears to have excellent energy and health; she doesn’t wear Walmart shower curtains as “dresses.” Two, she walks her class warfare talk, and is not just another hooker (yet) for Wall Street $ like Biden and HRC.

    I think I told the story, but I’m mature so I’ll repeat myself and pretend I didn’t.

    I had a torrid thing with one of the Clintons’ biggest supporters. (Inner circle.) I was skiing with her at Telluride, and then I said, never a good idea, Watch this! and drove her over the Million Dollar highway to Silverton and points beyond.

    This is the Million Dollar Highway, people. I give up trying to satisfy WordPress with a 1991-compliant .jpg so you have to click through. Anyway, it’s a fun drive in winter. Not very common in the USA, more common in Europe or south Asia.

    This terrified her, but it was on this trip I introduced her to Merle Haggard’s perfect baritone. I put two hands on the wheel, at her request, and played Merle CDs in the rent-a-car. She was current on pop music and graciously noted that Kid Rock or whomever couldn’t carry Merle’s jock.

    So later, driving into Durango, we stopped at Walmart to buy more Merle. We got a couple of CDs and I was wandering over to sporting goods to look at knives or something, and she said, “I’m very uncomfortable here; I’m uncomfortable with these people; I want to leave please.” So we left.

    Well. That woman has raised money for WJC and HRC in her homes. She thinks HRC is eminently likeable and important. HRC today feeds off that enthusiasm. That’s her market. Not the oily fat people at Walmart who cast the votes. We all make choices in life.

    So…remembering that we don’t vote for our Prime Minister, we vote for our MP and the party with the most MPs likely chooses the PM…I think that Boris is taking a big gamble IF he goes for a General Election without delivering a clean Brexit first.

    I don’t hang out with normeez, so there’s a chance that I’m misreading things, but…

    Boris’ Shit Deal is not far from May’s Shit Deal, we’re still under their courts till 2022 (the EU will have NO incentive to work to get a deal) at least. So I don’t want his deal. I want No Deal. Boris’ deal might be the best that he can get but it’s still failure. He’ll be a loser AFAIAC. Not saying that there’s anyone better though.

    Boris is saying:
    1) trust me to deliver Brexit while pushing a shit deal when trust in politicians is at rock bottom
    2) vote for me because Corbyn will be a catastrophe when people’s trust in democracy is dying. “They’re all fucking wasters, does it really matter who’s in charge?” “Perhaps a term under laba will teach the stupid fucking libtard bastards a huge lesson in socialism being shit”.

    I likely won’t vote tory at all because my local MP is a waster of a remoaner (no headlines, does as he’s told, but he’s a remainer). I might think about it with a No-Deal. But no promises. Otherwise I’ll vote for Nigel’s party (TBP / BXP) but that’s not without problems itself (a story for another comment)

    The key is when/if Boris talks to Nigel about an electoral pact. He won’t do it unless he sees defeat coming. He’d have to tell Tory candidates to step down in northern constituencies that still hate the tories from back in Maggie’s days. He’ll take pain from within the party. And the party’s reputation will be dinged.

    If Boris delivers No-Deal first then I genuinely think that he’ll walk the next GE without needing Nigel. High stakes, Boris. Or would you prefer me to go back to calling you BloJo?

    Well, in the forthcoming election, should there be one, I will be voting for the Brexit Party because:

    1. Boris promised we would leave by October 31st and he has broken that promise (he knew when he made the promise that Remoaners would put up lots of obstacles, but it looks like he never had the plan or intention to do what was required to overcome those obstacles).
    2. He will almost certainly go into an election with his Surrender Agreement as the “Leave” option – but this is not the Leave I voted for
    3. Even if he promises he will leave without a deal (either immediately, or after yet more faffing about trying to agree an acceptable deal), I don’t believe him.
    4. There is no risk, in my consituency at least, of “vote BXP, get Corbyn” and even if there was, I don’t give a shit any more, the Conservatives don’t deserve my vote.

    And it’s Happy Birthday

    What he reads out sounds a little odd regarding the ranks of the commanders. Note that you’re going back to the days where Sergeant Major wasn’t the top rank of Sergeants. It was more the bottom rank of Generals.

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sergeant_major_general

    Sergeant major general is a now mostly extinct military rank. A prominent example was Philip Skippon in the English New Model Army as organized by Oliver Cromwell.

    Over the course of the 17th century, the increasing professionalisation of armies saw sergeant major general become the most junior of the general ranks. At the same time, the sergeant portion of the title was more and more commonly dropped; by the early 18th century, the rank’s name had been permanently shortened to major general.

    Since sergeant major general had ranked below lieutenant general, the newly named rank of major general appeared to create a precedence issue, in that a major outranks a lieutenant but a lieutenant general outranks a major general. This continues to cause confusion to those unfamiliar with the history of the rank, particularly in those armies using insignia similar to the British Army. The rank is sometimes used by paramilitary organizations such as militias[citation needed].

    The FB didn’t mean this in the way, I’m sure, I’m going to react against:

    “Oddly enough, the common people are better judges …”

    I always bridle when I hear this because I spent 30 years in the DC/NYC bubble, thus located socially and professionally with what I call the clerisy: People who consider themselves absolutely UNcommon and therefore entitled to run the country, highly selective colleges, the media, entertainment. This has been created, as Charles Murray notes, by a great filtering of our society along so-called ‘meritocratic’ lines: By school selection and entrance, leading to a small cohort of people intermarrying, living in the same zip codes, working in the same institutions, rewarding each other indiscriminately. Murray writes that this began in earnest in the 1960s, so now we’re into its third generation.

    I don’t think these people are innovators, artists, statesmen, philosophers. I think they are callow parasites who are expert at manipulating institutions. So it was always a bit of a struggle to be undercover and compliant; I often wasn’t and it cost me as my inconsistencies were revealed over time.

    Even Rush Limbaugh uses this construction of “common people”: he’s always talking about “average Americans.” He doesn’t mean it snidely in the manner of the Washington Post but my word, you want to hear cliches and groupthink recited, have dinner with a Washington Post columnist. (One of my execs was married to one, and you talk about a colossal pussy with nothing of importance or meaning to say, he’s one. They both are Yalies, of course.) So who is being “average” here?

    It’s a very encouraging time to be alive as there is a renewal now of the populist, civic impulses that have constructed societies. We know it’s scary to the self-annointed because they never stop smearing us, booing the president, breaking the law to impeach the damn electorate and its electoral choices.

    Anyway, for any readers out there, the two military historians who have best educated me are John Keegan (Englishman) and Victor Davis Hanson, a classicist by trade, who writes on war … and farming.

    (Once I was in an online debate with a bunch of self-annointed intellectuals and I went into reasonable depth on VD Hanson’s theory of war. This caused screaming and shrieking; these were ideas they hadn’t previously received, certified. Then one of them, boy, he put me in my place. He said, “I talked to my friend who teaches classics and he’s never heard of him.” Right there you have it: Social and professional dismissal. Hanson has sold more works of classical scholarship than any living American.)

    Here is Hanson’s current memo on this bullshit American nomenklatura. The nomenklatura needs to be destroyed. They are the average, conformist, self-dealing cohort that would colonize and indenture 300 million people. (That’s what breaking the Electoral College would do: Turn 85% of the country into colonies to be strip-mined for the benefit of the nomenklatura.)

    The Biden/Hillary dynamic, imo, is months older than the chattering classes acknowledge. Biden started taking hits back in May and June and I would look at HRC’s crew for its source. They’re going to be successful in running him out of the race. The guy is so age-addled and organically stupid that once the Jake Tappers of the world get the memo, they’ll destroy his campaign in a week. There is no constituency for the guy; he had a “rally” in his home town recently and pulled all of 300 people.

    My ex-wife married a guy who is tight with Clinton fixer Terry McAuliffe (he was also governor of Virginia, despite being a poster-boy for inside politician racketeering); the fiance I took her away from, when we were 20 at school, grew up, lives in the same neighborhood and was Clinton’s campaign manager in 2016. My daughter gives me the occasional update on their doings. These are slimey, slimey people.

    I’m beginning to think that hidden somewhere in the White House or Trump Tower there’s a magic wand that the president wields which turns his detractors— old Obama hands, make-believe conservative politicians and commentators, Democrats, and the media, into laughingstocks. If so, this weekend he waved it over the Washington Post.

    Baghdadi photographed and publicized how he and his fellow butchers roasted alive men hogtied over flames, burned whole families with their children in cages, drowned prisoners in cages, raped and murdered thousands of Yazidi women and girls, and beheaded, shot, and blew up countless thousands of people.

    Among those he kidnapped, tortured and murdered was a young American woman Kayla Mueller whom Obama failed to rescue in time.

    After his Iraqi mayhem, Baghdadi took refuge in Syria where he hid out.

That’s why she fights against gays getting married one moment, and the next she’s officiating a gay marriage. Young women are among her biggest detractors, which has to hurt considering it’s the sacrifices and the battles that Hillary and other women of her generation endured so that this younger generation would never have to be told by the Barbara Bushes of the world that they should just shut up and go bake some cookies.

    I love North Dakota, FB. It is the flyover section of flyover country. It’s where I would prefer to die. Up some wash above the Missouri where the coyotes do their thing before some unfortunate MFer discovers the corpse leaning against a rock.

    It’s where, if you’re visiting Grandma in Williston, as we were, you fly to Minot and drive 200 miles. (My-Not, internacionales.)

    While driving you notice these weird little government sites along the road, one after another. That’s where the nukes/ICBMs slept. If you’re lucky you get to watch the Buffalo and T-Bones fly. (B-52s, and the most beautiful bomber ever, the Rockwell B-1.)

    The woman, mother of Son #2, had a viable pre-Harvard core. Her grandmother, at 90, looked and dressed like mine. (They were both Norwegian plains settlers.) They even did their hair the same way. She had me sit next to her whenever we visited, and she reached for and held my hand for hours. I’m sure there are other people here whose mother or grandmother or great-grandmother wrote out her recipes in perfect cursive, on 3×5 cards, to be kept in a small metal box with a hinged top.

    This is from an American site but I think it fits Brexit.

    Sundance describes “cold anger” at the Conservative Treehouse, extracted from his essay at The Last Refuge:

    There’s a level of anger far deeper and more consequential than expressed rage or visible behavior, it’s called Cold Anger.

    Cold Anger does not need to go to violence. For those who carry it, no
    conversation is needed when we meet. You cannot poll or measure it;
    specifically, because most who carry it avoid discussion. And that
    decision has nothing whatsoever to do with any form of correctness.

    Cold Anger absorbs betrayal silently, often prudently.

    Cold Anger is not hatred, it is far more purposeful.

    Cold Anger takes notice of the liars, even from a great distance – seemingly invisible to the mob. Cold Anger will still hold open the door for the riot goer. Mannerly.

    Cold Anger evidenced is more severe because it is more strategic, and more purposeful.

    Cold Anger does not gloat; it absorbs consistent vilification and ridicule
    as fuel. This sensibility does not want to exist, it is forced to exist
    in otherwise unwilling hosts – we also refuse to be destabilized by it.

    Cold Anger is not driven to act in spite of itself; it drives a reckoning.

    Cold Anger perceives deception the way the long-term battered absorb a blow in the hours prior to the pre-planned exit; with purpose.

    Shouldn’t Hillary Clinton also take the MoCa Test? At times she seems completely delusional—or is she a bit unhinged?

    In one of the strangest paradoxes in American history, Clinton apparently does not accept or cannot remember that she hired Christopher Steele, a foreign national, through the use of three deceptive firewalls—the Democratic National Committee, the Perkins Coie law firm, and Fusion GPS—in order to smear candidate Trump from bought Russian sources. She also simply will not admit that other campaign aides in 2016 were working to get dirt on Trump as well from disgruntled Ukrainians.

    While fleeing from this reality, she had concocted a fantasy that Donald Trump won the Electoral College not because her hare-brained campaign team sent her southward to win a “mandate” by flipping unflippable red-states Georgia and Arizona, while neglecting a supposedly secure blue wall in the north.

    Now she apparently believes an erstwhile, post-election ally, third-candidate leftist Jill Stein, was a Russian “asset” used by Moscow to draw votes from her candidacy, while current Democratic candidate Tulsi Gabbard likewise is in the de facto service of the Russians. Who knew that outsiders Trump, Stein, and Gabbard were all Russian moles variously working against Hillary’s interests?

    And all this from Hillary Clinton, who inaugurated the 2009 disastrous Russian appeasement scheme known as “reset” by pushing a red plastic Jacuzzi button in Geneva, and who was instrumental in green-lighting North American uranium sales to Russian interests, which interests through third parties had donated to her foundation and indirectly paid Russians to interfere in the 2016 election to destroy her opponent?

    my dad’s family came from the netherlands to north dakota. i remember our family visiting up there when i was 15. i had my learner’s permit, so i was driving along, pulling our camper, and looked down and noticed i was driving 70mph. i exclaimed, “I’m driving 70 mph!” and my dad, who was asleep in the back, woke straight up and told me to slow down. lol!

    there’s a story of my grandfather driving in north dakota and being pulled over by a cop for driving too fast. the cop asked him, “Do you always have to be first?” to which my grandfather replied, “Yes.”

    My faith in humanity is restored

    During the summer of 2018, Sulkowicz tells me, she was single for the first time in years. Swiping through Tinder, a man she found “distasteful” super-liked her. “It smelled like Connecticut,” she says of his profile. “He was very blond, law school, cut jawline, trapezoidal body figure, tweed suit kind of vibe, but something inside of me made me swipe right, I don’t know.” They began messaging, and she found him witty. “He was actually way more fun to talk to than any other person I matched with.”

    Eventually, Sulkowicz stalked him on Twitter and realized that he was conservative — “like, very conservative.” At first, she was repulsed and considered breaking it off. But then she thought, “Wait, actually, that’s kind of fucked up because he’s the most interesting person I’ve come across, shouldn’t I be open to talking to him?” After dispelling her initial fear, she texted him that it would be “interesting (progressive? Powerful?) for two people who might be the antithesis of each other to go on a Tinder date.” . . .

    Soon, she began attending house parties and happy hours with conservative and libertarian intellectuals, reading Jordan Peterson and articles from the National Review. In the past, Sulkowicz dismissed opposing views without understanding them, but now she sees intellectual curiosity as intertwined with respect: she wants to disagree with people on their own terms.

    Trump might not be an expert in international relations, but he gets geopolitics better than a lot of career grifters blathering the same talking points in DC blob circles. That’s because he is mercantilist in approach. To him, nothing matters more than cost-benefit. And his foreign policy is predicated not on arbitrary moral values or supposed human rights promotion, but on strict narrow realism on what is better for the structural interests of the United States.

    I have often stated in these pages that Trump might be rhetorically challenged, speaking in a way other presidents never spoke, but he has a Teddy Rooseveltian approach to politics. Nothing else matters to him than maximizing American great power and avoiding needless confrontations while focusing on broader strategic goals.

    Trump himself said in the press conference publicizing the death of Baghdadi that the two powers who would like the United States to spend trillions on the Middle East are Russia and China, and he is not the only one saying that.

    Texas School District Mandates Teaching Kids How to Have Anal Sex
    By Todd Starnes -October 29, 201

    The sex and gender revolutionaries have officially taken over the Austin Independent School District without firing a single shot.

    In spite of overwhelming opposition from parents and pastors, the district’s trustees voted early Tuesday morning to implement a pornographic sex education policy that includes instruction on anal sex and how to place a condom on an erect penis.

    The father of a fifth grader demanded to know who gave the school district the right to teach his child how to have anal and oral sex.

    “Who gave you the right, Austin ISD? You have overstepped,” the rightfully frustrated dad said.

    The radical sex education policy will provide graphic instruction on gender identity and mandated support of the LGBT movement.

    Students in grade school and middle school will also be taught how to get an abortion or obtain birth control pills without parental permission or consent.

    The school district will also begin instructing students to no longer use words like “mother” or “father.”

    “Use gender inclusive language,” the district’s material mandates. “It is important to avoid terms which refer to only ‘male’ or ‘female’ identities when speaking with young children as this can limit their understanding of gender into binaries and can exclude children who may not identify within these identities.”

    The district’s curriculum recommends “integrating” words like parents or guardians instead mom or dad.

    Texas Values, one of the state’s leading family advocacy groups, warned that the Austin ISD was sending a message that people of faith are no longer welcome in the school district.

    “Austin ISD has broken the sacred trust between school and parent,” Texas Values spokesman David Walls said in a statement. “Austin parents have no reason to entrust their children to a school district that welcomes sex criminals and sexually explicit materials in the school.”

    To force this kind of pornography on school children is nothing more than government-sanctioned child abuse. The district’s policy is all about grooming children for sex.

    As one parent declared, “The curriculum is an attack on Christianity and family and on parental rights.”

    More than 100 citizens spoke at Monday night’s district meeting and the overwhelming majority were opposed to the policy.

    Those speaking on behalf of the plan included a nine-year-old child, a fourth-grader, the parent of a transgender second grander, a lady who identified by the pronoun “they/them” and some gal wearing a t-shirt that read, “I met God. They’re queer, y’all.”

    But I knew the fix was in before the debate even commenced. A good many of the district trustees had already planted LGBT and Transgender flags on their desks.

    Sadly, the sex and gender revolutionaries have already commandeered a number of public schools around the nation. Instead of teaching our kids math and science they are trying to convince little boys that they are really little girls.

    I write about this stealth attack on our children in my new book, “Culture Jihad: How to Stop the Left From Killing a Nation.”

    There’s really no polite way to say this, folks. But if freedom-loving, church-going patriots do not reclaim our public schools – we will lose the Republic.
