Watch: Kellyanne Conway Goes Off the Rails in Blistering, Insane, False Attack Against Hillary Clinton

Published

on

Conservatives continue to ask why Hillary Clinton won’t just go away as they continually talk about her in the media. Kellyanne Conway Thursday morning blasted the 2016 Democratic presidential nominee over remarks she made in India on Saturday that the right wing press has twisted into the pretzel of their preference. 

Conway falsely implied that Hillary Clinton had said all women ask their husbands who they should vote for, which Clinton did not say.

“She basically is, again, insulting half of the country,” Conway claimed on Fox News. “And, let me tell you something lady: The idea that I or other women like me have to ask our husbands how to vote, it’s really a joke, particularly since this country knows who you are first and foremost because of who you married. And so stop pretending you’re a feminist, you’re for equality, you’re for fairness to women, and then running around accusing us of checking with our husbands and our significant others before we vote.”

Kellyanne Conway is literally attacking Hillary Clinton for something she did not say, and telling her she is not a feminist, while crediting Clinton’s career on her marriage to Bill Clinton. 

Go figure.

So, here’s what Hillary Clinton did say that has the right wing so worked up.

Read this very carefully:

Democrats, Clinton said, “do not do well with white men, and we don’t do well with married, white women. And part of that is an identification with the Republican Party, and a sort of ongoing pressure to vote the way that your husband, your boss, your son, whoever, believes you should.”

Clinton, Conway should realize, is not speaking about “half of the country.” And she’s not saying women are “checking” with their husbands before they vote. 

Clinton is saying conservative men married to white women pressure them to vote as they do.

The Washington Post says, “Like it or not, studies suggest that Clinton may not be wrong on white women voting like their husbands.”

Clinton, unfortunately, is generally correct, the Post notes, citing “studies that show that how white women vote, especially those who are married, is highly influenced by the politics of their husbands.”

Kellyanne Conway is a longtime pollster. Which means she likely is either familiar with these studies, or with the facts they present.

And 16 months after the election, here she is, still tearing into Hillary Clinton.

Trump Administration Orders Military Police to Prepare to Deploy to Minneapolis

Published

on

Concern is quickly growing on news the Trump administration has ordered U.S. Military Police to prepare to deploy to Minneapolis after four nights of protests. Federal law, specifically the Posse Comitatus Act of 1878, makes it illegal in many cases to use the U.S. Military within the borders of the United States, especially for law enforcement.

Early Saturday morning the Associated Press reported “the Pentagon took the rare step of ordering the Army to put several active-duty U.S. military police units on the ready to deploy to Minneapolis, where the police killing of George Floyd sparked the widespread protests.”

Soldiers from Fort Bragg in North Carolina and Fort Drum in New York have been ordered to be ready to deploy within four hours if called, according to three people with direct knowledge of the orders. Soldiers in Fort Carson, in Colorado, and Fort Riley in Kansas have been told to be ready within 24 hours.

President Donald Trump in a 1 AM Friday morning tweet threatened to call up the National Guard and shoot “thugs” in Minneapolis if state and local officials did “bring the City under control.”

Trump also tweeted, “when the looting starts, the shooting starts.”

The President promised he would “assume control” and “get the job done right.”

Trump hours earlier, according to the AP, had “asked Defense Secretary Mark Esper for military options to help quell the unrest in Minneapolis after protests descended into looting and arson in some parts of the city.”

National security attorney Bradley Moss weighed in:

Online many are referring to the Posse Comitatus Act to support their belief Trump’s actions might be illegal.

Former Bush chief White House ethics lawyer Richard Painter, now a law professor, fired off such a warning on Friday before the AP’s report:

The Washington Post’s Dan Lamothe apparently disagrees:

ABC News adds: “Under the post-Civil War law known as Posse Comitatus, the U.S. active duty military is forbidden from carrying out law enforcement duties. That ban can only be waived if a President declares a national emergency.”
