It seems Hillary Clinton took her leadership training straight from the pages of George Orwell’s Animal Farm in that she seems to preach the principle – “No one believes more firmly than Comrade Napoleon that all animals are equal. He would be only too happy to let you make your decisions for yourselves. But sometimes you might make the wrong decisions, comrades, and then where should we be?”
The latest? It seems Hillary is yet again trying to hire a batch of interns for her New York City office offering a four-month Autumn internship which offers no pay, stipends, or college credit. She has a history of offering no monetary compensation to campaign staff during elections, despite enjoying significantly large donor, campaign war chests.
The internship positions, posted on the Clinton Foundation’s website, run from mid-September to mid-December, and require “a minimum of three days per week” of work in the areas of CGI Commitments, Too Small to Fail, Clinton Climate Initiative, Communications, Foreign Policy, Marketing, and Development.
Internships require “a minimum of three days per week,” and undergrads “of all majors are encouraged to apply.”
While the number of hours per day aren’t specified, the “internship is unpaid.”
“Interns will provide support to our staff, assisting our work on a wide range of projects. Work will include but will not be limited to: compiling press clips, monitoring social media, conducting research, drafting correspondence, and assisting with office management,” the job posting states.
Clinton’s office is looking for applicants who have “a high level of professionalism and discretion,” “strong research and writing skills,” “the ability to work collaboratively as part of a team,” “strong interpersonal communication skills,” “a diligent work ethic and a sense of conscientiousness,” as well as “enthusiasm, dedication, and a positive attitude.”
Hillary raised more than $1.4 billion during the 2016 presidential election cycle according to the Washington Post, including more than $200 million from Super PACs faced significant backlash at the time for offering campaign interns “free coffee” and “the chance to make history” rather than monetary compensation. During the Democratic Party primaries, Clinton contender Bernie Sanders faced criticism of his own as he paid his campaign interns $10.10 an hour, in stark opposition of his advocacy for a $15.00 an hour minimum wage.
Shame on Hillary Clinton for not paying her staff. Does she honestly think that it is ethical not to pay people for work? No wonder she never got elected. She's part of the problem! @HillaryClinton https://t.co/3FI3fLWdOJ

The Twitter-verse erupted in a tirade to vent its anger with many users pointing out the Clintons’ hypocrisy citing their hiring practices as “shameful” and suggesting the internships were evidence of hypocrisy on the part of many Democrats who have utilized decent, well-paid job opportunities for young people as part of their campaign platform, yet cannot seem to practice what they preach during elections.
The job posting does not offer any alternative ways of compensation like school credit or a stipend. Hillary’s 2016 presidential campaign came under heavy criticism for offering young people the incredible opportunity to make history for….nothing. Zero compensation whatsoever. Nada. Zilch. Yet from 2001 to 2016 both Hillary and Bill made a combined total of $240 million from writing books, giving speeches and consulting work. But apparently could not be bothered to live up to their own campaign rhetoric?
According to a 2015 article from the New York Post – “But Clinton is on record to the contrary. ‘Businesses have taken advantage of unpaid internships to an extent that it is blocking the opportunities for young people to move on into paid employment,’ she lectured at UCLA in 2013. ‘More businesses need to move their so-called interns to employees.’”
I guess just like everything else how charities should work, the proper handling of classified information, whether interns should be paid…well those rules are for other people! Why be surprised that she won’t even honor her own views on fair pay?
Then even more sinister underlying message behind this bid for interns in the fall of 2018 is the possibility that Hillary may seriously be planning to actually run for president yet again for a third time in 2020 after failing twice. Could she possibly think the third time is the charm?
Melania Goes Full Grizzly-Wife On Coward Who Attacked Her Husband – She’s In Rare Form!
The Daily Caller is reporting that our first lady Melania Trump heavily criticized the author of an “anonymous” New York Times op-ed which was critical of President Trump on Thursday. And even went as far as to accuse them of “sabotaging” the country.
“If a person is bold enough to accuse people of negative actions, they have a responsibility to publicly stand by their words and people have the right to be able to defend themselves,” Melania Trump said in a statement.
“To the writer of the op-ed — you are not protecting this country; you are sabotaging it with your cowardly actions,” she said in a Thursday statement provided to CNN. She preceded her declaration on the op-ed with a lengthy condemnation of anonymous sources generally.
“Unidentified sources have become the majority of the voices people hear about in today’s news. People with no names are writing our nation’s history. If a person is bold enough to accuse people of negative actions, they have a responsibility to publicly stand by their words and people have a right to defend themselves,” she explained.
This is the NY Times opinion piece in question:
“President Trump is facing a test to his presidency unlike any faced by a modern American leader.
It’s not just that the special counsel looms large. Or that the country is bitterly divided over Mr. Trump’s leadership. Or even that his party might well lose the House to an opposition hellbent on his downfall.
The dilemma — which he does not fully grasp — is that many of the senior officials in his own administration are working diligently from within to frustrate parts of his agenda and his worst inclinations.
I would know. I am one of them.
To be clear, ours is not the popular “resistance” of the left. We want the administration to succeed and think that many of its policies have already made America safer and more prosperous.
But we believe our first duty is to this country, and the president continues to act in a manner that is detrimental to the health of our republic.
That is why many Trump appointees have vowed to do what we can to preserve our democratic institutions while thwarting Mr. Trump’s more misguided impulses until he is out of office.
The root of the problem is the president’s amorality. Anyone who works with him knows he is not moored to any discernible first principles that guide his decision making.
Although he was elected as a Republican, the president shows little affinity for ideals long espoused by conservatives: free minds, free markets and free people. At best, he has invoked these ideals in scripted settings. At worst, he has attacked them outright.
How McCain Got the Last Word Against Trump
In addition to his mass-marketing of the notion that the press is the “enemy of the people,” President Trump’s impulses are generally anti-trade and anti-democratic.
Don’t get me wrong. There are bright spots that the near-ceaseless negative coverage of the administration fails to capture: effective deregulation, historic tax reform, a more robust military and more.
But these successes have come despite — not because of — the president’s leadership style, which is impetuous, adversarial, petty and ineffective.
From the White House to executive branch departments and agencies, senior officials will privately admit their daily disbelief at the commander in chief’s comments and actions. Most are working to insulate their operations from his whims.
Meetings with him veer off topic and off the rails, he engages in repetitive rants, and his impulsiveness results in half-baked, ill-informed and occasionally reckless decisions that have to be walked back.
“There is literally no telling whether he might change his mind from one minute to the next,” a top official complained to me recently, exasperated by an Oval Office meeting at which the president flip-flopped on a major policy decision he’d made only a week earlier.
The erratic behavior would be more concerning if it weren’t for unsung heroes in and around the White House. Some of his aides have been cast as villains by the media. But in private, they have gone to great lengths to keep bad decisions contained to the West Wing, though they are clearly not always successful.
It may be cold comfort in this chaotic era, but Americans should know that there are adults in the room. We fully recognize what is happening. And we are trying to do what’s right even when Donald Trump won’t.
The result is a two-track presidency.
Take foreign policy: In public and in private, President Trump shows a preference for autocrats and dictators, such as President Vladimir Putin of Russia and North Korea’s leader, Kim Jong-un, and displays little genuine appreciation for the ties that bind us to allied, like-minded nations.
Astute observers have noted, though, that the rest of the administration is operating on another track, one where countries like Russia are called out for meddling and punished accordingly, and where allies around the world are engaged as peers rather than ridiculed as rivals.
On Russia, for instance, the president was reluctant to expel so many of Mr. Putin’s spies as punishment for the poisoning of a former Russian spy in Britain. He complained for weeks about senior staff members letting him get boxed into further confrontation with Russia, and he expressed frustration that the United States continued to impose sanctions on the country for its malign behavior. But his national security team knew better — such actions had to be taken, to hold Moscow accountable.
This isn’t the work of the so-called deep state. It’s the work of the steady state.
Given the instability many witnessed, there were early whispers within the cabinet of invoking the 25th Amendment, which would start a complex process for removing the president. But no one wanted to precipitate a constitutional crisis. So we will do what we can to steer the administration in the right direction until — one way or another — it’s over.
The bigger concern is not what Mr. Trump has done to the presidency but rather what we as a nation have allowed him to do to us. We have sunk low with him and allowed our discourse to be stripped of civility.
Senator John McCain put it best in his farewell letter. All Americans should heed his words and break free of the tribalism trap, with the high aim of uniting through our shared values and love of this great nation.”
Although there has been a lot of speculation as to who this mystery writer is the article was said to have been written by a self-described “senior administration official” who writes.“ And in a foolish way is trying to say that although Trump is supposedly not doing the right thing that they the American people should know that there are many adults in the room who are doing the right thing.
This mystery writer described themselves as a “cabal of administration officials actively circumventing the president’s daily desires.” The op-ed comes just as excerpts from Bob Woodward’s new book on the administration are being released. Which show a similar culture of senior aides who do not think highly of the president and work constantly to control his behavior.
The Swamp Strikes Back, but now Melania is Unleashed!
Julia Roberts Finally Says How She Feels About Conservatives Seeing Her Movies – BAD Idea!
Ok, now this has to be the most asinine thing I have seen to date, even more so than Robert De Nero’s recent temper tantrum against President Trump.
Let’s be honest with ourselves here. Hollywood is so far gone in its lunacy that it’s no longer even on the same planet as the rest of humanity, and they show it every single day since Donald Trump became our 45th President.
In order to be with the “in crowd” in Hollywood, you have to be pro-choice, you have to fight with all your might to try and remove the Second Amendment from the Constitution, and probably what is most important, you have to be willing to mock and ridicule the same middle-American folks who support your movies, TV shows, or music.
In a newly discovered video which hasn’t been viewed many times, actress Julia Roberts is seen speaking on Broadway giving it her best attempt to elicit support for Hillary Clinton only one month before the 2016 election.
Wow. One thing no one can never accuse Hollywood of is having class.
“You have one job, you are a citizen. You are a citizen. Okay, I’m a liberal. and I am proud of it. Why do conservatives think that people who don’t make serious dollars are not serious people? Why do we let the right wing claim patriotism and religion for themselves?”
What in the world is this woman even talking about? Is she high or something? Maybe Liberals could claim religion for themselves, but to do that they would have to stop booing God when it’s brought up in the Democrat Party Platform.
This, of course, isn’t the first time this has-been has attacked people like you and me. In fact a few years ago she tried to call attention to herself for a quote which was “Republican comes in the dictionary just after reptile and just above repugnant.” Classy huh?
Here is more on how celebrities are hurting the liberal cause via The Daily Beast:
On Friday morning, President Trump partook in one of his favorite rituals this side of hitting the links or avoiding Tiffany: a bill signing. The commander-in-chief, surrounded by ornamental backers, inked the Veterans Affairs Reform Act—a measure that will make it easier to terminate VA employees—before soaking up camera flashes and cabinet applause. Among the admiring spectators was Al Baldasaro, a military veteran and New Hampshire state representative. The presence of Baldasaro, who introduced candidate Trump at a number of campaign stops and served as his adviser on veterans issues, would be unremarkable were it not for the fact that he once called for Hillary Clinton to be killed.
“This whole thing disgusts me. Hillary Clinton should be put in the firing line and shot for treason,” said Baldasaro. He was discussing Benghazi, a tragedy wherein the Republican House found no evidence of wrongdoing on Clinton’s behalf, during a July 2016 radio interview. The incendiary remarks triggered a secret service probe, but Baldasaro never received any significant repercussions. And Baldasaro’s cameo at Trump’s recent bill signing received precious little coverage on cable news. You see, they were too busy upbraiding Johnny Depp.
Depp attracted the ire of the news media for disgusting comments he made about the President at England’s Glastonbury Festival Thursday evening. “Can we bring Trump here?” Depp asked the crowd. “When was the last time an actor assassinated a president?” The Pirates of the Caribbean star was, of course, referencing John Wilkes Booth’s assassination of President Lincoln. He added, “I want to clarify: I’m not an actor. I lie for a living. However, it’s been a while. And maybe it’s time.”
The actor’s incredibly poor—reprehensible, really—attempt at humor received swift condemnation from the White House, which responded with the following statement: “President Trump has condemned violence in all forms and it’s sad that others like Johnny Depp have not followed his lead. I hope that some of Mr. Depp’s colleagues will speak out against this type of rhetoric as strongly as they would if his comments were directed to a Democrat elected official.” The Depp imbroglio also, as expected, sent right-wing media into a tizzy, with everyone from Fox News and Breitbart to Rush Limbaugh tying Depp to a Shakespeare in the Park production of Julius Caesar featuring a Trump-like protagonist; a photo of Kathy Griffin posing with a severed mannequin head of Trump; Madonna’s idiotic women’s march crack about how she’s “thought an awful lot about blowing up the White House”; and lastly, the shooting of Republican Congressman Steve Scalise by an unhinged Bernie Sanders supporter.
There is causality, some on the right are arguing, between the antics of Depp, the Caesar play, Griffin, and Madonna and acts of violence perpetrated against those on the right, such as the recent shooting of Rep. Scalise—a baseless claim, given that there is no evidence the shooter was influenced by any of these factors. There is also the idea that these celebrity outliers represent not only the views of Hollywood as a whole, but the base of the Democratic Party.
Now, let’s give credit where it’s due: the right are very good at this. Every time a lefty celeb like, say, Lena Dunham opens their mouth and says something stupid, they will throw TV tantrums and sling fiery op-eds for an entire week, milking the outrage teat to the very last drop. Of course, those on the right, especially in the right-wing media, don’t really care what Lena Dunham thinks. Their rationale behind this is simple: Hollywood celebrities are out of touch, therefore all of Hollywood is out of touch; and, since most of Hollywood is comprised of “coastal liberal elites,” then this one rogue celebrity’s views represent the whole. It’s part of the ongoing culture war fomented by the right, pitting these “coastal liberal elites” against Middle America’s working class—an opera that Trump, with his faux-disdain for Hollywood and faux-championing of blue-collar folks, is all too willing to conduct.
Forget the fact that Trump, who has spent his entire career exploiting the working class and cozying up to celebrities, is an outrageous hypocrite. His supporters don’t care. Heck, they cheered when he trotted out a former Goldman Sachs executive at a rally this past week in Cedar Rapids. So, given the elements at play here, Hollywood celebrities like Depp, Griffin, and Madonna must stop feeding chum to the right-wing ragemonster. They’ve proven themselves to be far better than the left at exploiting this so-called cultural divide. For evidence, look no further than the race for Georgia’s sixth congressional district, where the opposition issued attack ads that tied Democrat Jon Ossoff to the Kathy Griffin stunt (because she had endorsed him two months earlier on Twitter). You won’t see nearly the same kind of vitriol from the left over the Baldasaro appearance, or that time Trump invited rocker Ted Nugent, who’s called for the deaths of Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama, over for an Oval Office visit. That unfortunate episode was treated as nothing more than a late-night punchline.
Let’s talk Hollywood for a second. The notion that Johnny Depp, Kathy Griffin or Madonna—or really any celebrity with significant name recognition—somehow speaks for the entire industry is absurd. According to the 2016 Otis Report on the Creative Economy of California, the entertainment industry there employs some 166,300 people. Meanwhile, the Bureau of Labor Statistic reported that, as of May 2016, there are 48,620 actors employed nationwide—including 14,840 in California. The vast majority of these actors are struggling, working multiple jobs to pay the bills. And a great many of them were not born in California to wealth, but migrated there from different parts of the country. Johnny Depp, for example, grew up poor in Owensboro, Kentucky. The average crew size for a Hollywood film production, meanwhile, comes out to around 600 people (Marvel’s The Avengers had 2,718), and most of these crew members have jobs like key grip, security, catering, low-level assistant, etc. Not exactly the “elite.”
All of this does not excuse what Depp, Griffin, and Madonna said or did. Those actions deserve widespread condemnation (Depp deserves far greater scorn for other reasons, although that’s a different story). If these Hollywood liberals want to truly make a difference—that is, make any sort of dent in 2018—then they need to realize they’re easy targets, knock off the outrageous antics, and stick to the issues. And if liberals in general want to start winning elections again, then they must start holding things like Trump’s Baldasaro and Nugent visits to account. Otherwise the Democrats have about as much chance of succeeding as Johnny Depp’s next movie.”
I for one didn’t even know Julia Roberts was around anymore, and after watching this video I can see why. I loved the movie Pretty Woman, but I can’t say I can recall anything else she starred in after that. I know she has made other things but I guess none have really stood out enough to me that I would remember her starring in them. And sadly now even if she were to make Pretty Woman 2, I wouldn’t be watching it.
