    Nothing funnier than hearing a woman who had no qualms ascribing to racism when it suited her purposes, suddenly get applause for saying that ‘we need to be talking more about how unfair racism is’…and how ‘white people like her should be part of having that conversation’…

    This woman who just a few years ago was employing every vile racist tactic to smear and torpedo the historic black President..

    Hillary lies too easily…She cannot help herself …and she will never change…

    She’s completely dishonest and untrustworthy..

    She just told Rachel Maddow with a straight face that she immediately dropped out of the race in 2008 so as not to hurt then Senator Obama’s chances…and that she immediately got to work getting her supporters to support and vote for then Senator Obama…


    You can’t make this stuff up…

    Somebody please remind Hillary that she and her ‘friends’ and flunkies not only didn’t support really ever support then Senator Obama…

    That even after the President graciously gave her the unearned and undeserved SoS position she now wields as evidence of her ‘qualifications’ and ‘closeness’ to the President, she and her PUMAs continued to undermine him…at Foggy Bottom… and outside it…So much so that even her black flunkies had to prove their loyalty to her by being extra hostile to the Obamas..

    And don’t get me started on her friends and supporters like Anne-Marie Slaughter and Lynn de Rothschild…

    “…Clinton voters overlook money lust, shadowy surrogates, sociopathic policy shifts, horrific overseas record. Why?

    …As a lifelong Democrat who will be enthusiastically voting for Bernie Sanders in next week’s Pennsylvania primary, I have trouble understanding the fuzzy rosy filter through which Hillary fans see their champion. So much must be overlooked or discounted—from Hillary’s compulsive money-lust and her brazen indifference to normal rules to her conspiratorial use of shadowy surrogates and her sociopathic shape-shifting in policy positions for momentary expedience.

    Hillary’s breathtaking lack of concrete achievements or even minimal initiatives over her long public career doesn’t faze her admirers a whit. They have a religious conviction of her essential goodness and blame her blank track record on diabolical sexist obstructionists. When at last week’s debate Hillary crassly blamed President Obama for the disastrous Libyan incursion that she had pushed him into, her acolytes hardly noticed. They don’t give a damn about international affairs—all that matters is transgender bathrooms and instant access to abortion…

    Hillary’s road map to the Democratic nomination was written by “Tricky Dick” Nixon, who after his acrimonious defeat in the 1962 California gubernatorial race doggedly restored his standing in the GOP by doing the “rubber-chicken circuit,” building up the grass-roots connections that allowed him to win the White House six years later. Similarly, Hillary has spent the years since her 2008 loss to Obama in deepening and tightening her relationships with state and local Democratic politicians, community leaders, and urban ministers nationwide—for whom she has assets of infinite largesse.

    When pro-Hillary media taunt Bernie Sanders about what his campaign has or has not financially contributed to lower-level Democratic races, they are foolishly exposing Hillary’s modus operandi. Nixon’s rubber chicken has turned into one mighty gilded bird…”

    I just saw the commencement speech on TV this morning! Michelle Obama is so powerful, beautiful, and classy! Her speech had me in tears because she covered EVERYTHING! She covered issues that I'm always talking about. How this state can discriminate and target such a small group based on who they are and who they love! This country have came a long way and they will never give our president the credit that he deserves! But we still have a long way to go as well! She even touched basis on them not believing his citizenship, questioning him about his birth certificate, and the love that he have for God! If you have haters that mean you doing something right, and our president have done a lot that he don't get the credit for! I always wondered how Obama deal with all the hate so graciously and with dignity! I will never forget that line! " When they go low, I go high". From blocking minimum wage, being stereotyped, racism, our history, man she showed out! She even talked about how we might go inside a store and be watched or stared at a little bit harder than others! That's so true! That speech was worth listening too. She have to be one of the best speakers of all time! Yasssssssssss! @michelleobama gave me so much life! She said what I'm always saying, If your dreams don't scare you then that mean they are not big enough! I love her for that speech that she did at Jackson State University! Even though I'm self motivated she made me feel like I could accomplish and conquer anything! I'm so proud of the graduating class of 2016! Congratulations! I'm also proud of our first lady and our president! Everybody else turning down coming to MS because of the Religious Freedom Bill, but she came for a purpose! Everything she said needed to be said! You have to be a brave woman to touch basis on all of those issues! #History #Loveher #MichelleObama #JSU #JSUcommencement
