Clinton Blames Misogyny for Her Loss – Then She’s to Blame


Hillary Clinton said Tuesday she takes personal responsibility for her 2016 election loss, but also pointed to the timing of a letter from FBI Director James Comey and Russian interference as factors.

“If the election had been on October 27, I would be your president,” she told CNN’s Christiane Amanpour at a Women for Women event in New York.

“It wasn’t a perfect campaign, there is no such thing, but I was on the way to winning until a combination of Jim Comey’s letter on October 28 and Russian WikiLeaks raised doubts in the minds of people who were inclined to vote for me and got scared off,” she said. “The evidence for that intervening event is, I think, compelling, persuasive, and so we overcame a lot in the campaign.”

She also agreed that misogyny played a role in her loss.

“Yes, I do think it played a role. I think other things did as well. Every day that goes by, we find out more about the unprecedented inference, including from a foreign power whose leader is not a member of my fan club,” Clinton said, referring to Russian President Vladimir Putin. “It is real, it is very much a part of the landscape, political and socially and economically.”

Clinton also pointed out multiple times she won the popular vote, earning more votes than President Trump, despite losing the Electoral College and hence the White House.


This is a breaking news notice that CNN sent out this afternoon. Not much new – she took blame for her loss. Well… sort of. She’s to blame, but not really. But only for one part, but not on a Tuesday. Seriously, she’s to blame unless you consider fifteen other potential factors that she is convinced brought about her loss.

Well here’s my perspective on her loss and its really easy.

1 – She was and is a flawed candidate and there are so many flaws it would take days to list all the reasons she’s flawed.

2 – She was far too convinced she was going to win and so she cut way too many corners and didn’t or wouldn’t listen to strategists who likely didn’t have the nerve to give her real advise on what she should’ve done because they knew she wouldn’t listen anyway.

3 – Any candidate who thinks they are entitled to be home every night when they should be on the campaign trail have no business running for ANY political office because they don’t care about anyone but themselves.

4 – With the number of criminal questions hanging over her head – thinking she has any right to run for any public office is a delusion for Hillary Clinton. That should apply for anyone in the Clinton family.

5 – Hillary Clinton has gotten away with crimes that pretty much anyone else in this country would be in prison for, she should understand that and fade away. At some point, her luck or her influence is going to run out – or at least law abiding people in this country who love our country and the Constitution can hope it will end at some point and they will pay for their numerous crimes, along with their co-conspirators.

6 There are many many more points, but let’s just go back to her repeated claims about misogyny being to blame for her loss. The only people I remember bringing up her gender in the campaign as a focus, were her, her campaign and the left. They used the fact she’s a woman – over and over and over as a ploy in her campaign.

So if her gender was a problem in her campaign – it seems to me, her and her campaign strategy (if she had one) are to blame.

American Patriot Award for Hillary Clinton – Are They Kidding

American Patriot Award

Even IF people feel that Hillary Clinton deserves the American Patriot Award – it would seem they would hold off as a sign of respect for the men who died in Benghazi.¬† Just makes you wonder….¬† I have to ask, does this remind anyone of the way they felt when the news broke that Obama had won the Peace Prize???

Instead of focusing on all the reasons this seems like a bad idea – I’d rather share the mission statement from the director –

Mission Statement:

The American Patriot Award was created in response to the events of September 11th. The action of the passengers and crew on United Airlines Flight #93 was a life-changing event for the founder of this award. When American businessman Tom Burnett, Jr. said, “we’re going to do something,” he did something historic and courageous that will be remembered for generations to come. He, Jeremy Glick, Mark Bingham, CeeCee Lyles, Todd Beamer and others assessed what the true intentions of the hijackers were, put together a plan for a revolt and successfully carried it out in the first battle of America’s war against terror. In preventing the terrorists from using the plane as a guided missile aimed at Washington, many lives were saved. This event could be compared to the Colonial Patriot’s battle against the British a Concord Massachusetts in 1775. Passenger Todd Beamer’s “Let’s Roll,” battle cry could be compared to Paul Revere’s alarm, “The British are coming”. Truly, history repeated itself September 11th on Flight #93. Just as in 1775 when colonial farmers and shopkeepers dropped their plows and business ledgers to fight the British in the name of freedom, the passengers and crew on Flight #93 dropped their laptops and briefcases to defend America against this terrorist attack. The similarity of these two events explains why the American Patriot Award is symbolized by the Concord minuteman by the artist Daniel Chester French.

In honoring America’s patriots of the 21st century, this award will be presented to the parents of each passenger and crewmember. It is to recognize their contributions to America’s freedom by raising their children to be courageous, to be leaders, to be patriotic, to have faith and to possess the love for others needed to give one’s life for them. Where do America’s patriots learn these impeccable qualities of character? Who teaches them to have courage, to be a leader, to have faith, to love others and to be patriotic? More than anyone, they learn them from their parents. Their parents were their role models, their heroes, their teachers and their inspiration.

The long-term goal of the American patriot Award is to encourage parents to instill in their children, the family values of faith, love, patriotism, courage, and leadership. We believe that the parents of true Americans such as these deserve recognition for their exemplary parenting skills. Anyone can nominate future candidates for this award. Award ceremonies will be held on an annual basis at locations to be determined.

The Schmoldt Foundation For Education, a private non-profit foundation and Anode Systems Company of Grand Junction, Colorado presently sponsor the award. Additional sponsors are welcome. Donations to fund the awards or ceremonies can be made to the Schmoldt Foundation. Donors are welcome to attend this year’s ceremony either in Somerset County, Pennsylvania, or in Washington, D.C.
