Jill Stein Was The Most Powerful Democrat in 2016

Jill Stein was the most powerful Democrat in 2016. It’s a true story – that is, if all those whiny Hillary fanbois and girls are to be believed.

People are overly fixated on Jill Stein voters right now. It may have something to do with the fact that Justice Kennedy just retired, which will allow the Chief Cheeto to appoint another conservative Supreme Court Justice, definitively banking the Court on a hard right turn and bringing about the dawn of the Republic of Gilead (that’s a Handmaid’s Tale reference for you illiterate folk out there).

So obviously, if Trump hadn’t won the 2016 election, we wouldn’t be staring down the barrel of the Supreme Court potentially erasing the last 70+ years of Constitutional jurisprudence. Of course, this assumes that Senator McConnell won’t extend the courtesy of holding a confirmation vote after midterm elections, just as he held up the Merrick Garland nomination until Trump was elected. I’m not sure why people assume he wouldn’t maintain civility….hold on, I’m now remembering that he already done told us he’s going to ram the nomination through.

So naturally, tolerant Hillary sycophants were in a tizzy all over Twitter and Facebook last night, yelling as loud as they could into the virtual void.

Examples:

Yikes. It’s true that if nobody voted for Jill Stein and instead voted for Hillary, it would have swung the election. Trump would not be President right now. But just as with a single bad flag in football that could have swung the outcome, there are a lot of other things that could have too.

People could contemplate the fact that oh, I don’t know. Hillary could have like, ran a campaign to win instead of running a hubris-fueled campaign to not lose. The DNC could have not fucked with their own primary in ways that pissed off a lot of Democratic voters. Perhaps nominating someone who’s the subject of a highly polarizing scandal – legitimate or not (it was a farcical kangaroo court/show trial) is not the best strategy to win an election. Perhaps Hillary could have had more than ZERO ground game in Michigan and actually tried to engage voters. Just some thoughts. That is to say, yes she would be a million times better than Trump as President. She should have been President. The point is that fixating a bunch of vitriol on the severely misguided Stein voters is a bit well…pointless.

Don’t even get me started on blaming all Bernie supporters for being ridiculous Bernie Bros or the 1% who went for Stein. The overwhelming majority of Bernie voters backed Hillary in the general election. There were a few nut jobs who were disproportionately vocal about switching to Stein. And if all the Bernie lovers just stayed home, Hillary would have had 20+% of the vote. So get out of here with that garbage.

Isn’t this 2018? And fools are still relitigating the 2016 election? Meanwhile, traditional, stodgy Democratic Party stalwarts are bemoaning the fact that highly progressive candidates in both New York and Nebraska won their Congressional primary, as if they expected all the progressive energy generated by Bernie two years ago would simply go away. As if real, working class people wouldn’t love universal health care, a living wage, greater equality, and a host of other things that would drastically improve their lives.

Anyway, Jill Stein was clearly the most powerful Democrat in 2016 by Democrats’ own twitter admissions. Sad!

Say, what’s Robert Mueller up to these days, anyway?

Should Hillary Clinton Get a Restraining Order Against Republicans?

Hillary Clinton has zero political relevance. But, in a certain election in Ohio where five THOUSAND ads have been run this year mentioning her name, you would think she carried great weight.

In total, nearly 13,000 TV commercials Jan. 1 through April 24 mentioned or showed a photo of Clinton, according to data compiled for the USA TODAY NETWORK by Kantar Media’s Campaign Media Analysis Group.

I mean, what?

The race, specifically, that can not leave Hillary alone is the GOP primary for Ohio Governor. Could you imagine living in Ohio right now? The only thing you can get on TV right now is LeBron James and Hillary Clinton. Poor Baker Mayfield, really.

Even a Dozen Houses Won’t Bypass a GOP Primary These Days

Mitt Romney, owner of many houses and failed Presidential bids, announced earlier this year that he was going to become a Senator in Utah.

On Saturday, however, Utah Republicans announced that they had other ideas.

West Valley, Utah (CNN) Mitt Romney did not win the Utah Republican Party’s nomination on Saturday, meaning he must compete in a June primary election as he seeks to replace retiring US Sen. Orrin Hatch.

Makes you wonder if Mitt will even stick around for the Primary.

I mean, why should he? He’s political royalty and given both his willingness to talk out against Trump and his willingness to cater to Trump’s desires, Mitt was the ideal candidate that anyone in the GOP could look to. A primary for Mitt? It all sounds so unnecessary and beneath the guy.

Surely, Mitt will spin this as having “two fine candidates”, but, on the inside, he has to be reeling a bit. Mitt is gracing Utah with his presence. He could run in half a dozen other states he likely meets the residency requirements on, but, he chose YOU Utah.

Stop fawning over Donovan Mitchell and spread the love around.

Should 7 Year Olds Have The Power to Vote?

I saw a new Twitter account Sunday morning: TheTinyDiplomat. Immediately, I rolled my eyes as my first instinct was to expect a parody account where Trump’s hands practice diplomacy.

However, it is the account of 7-year-old Havana Edwards. A First Grader in the Washington, D.C. area who participated in a school walkout on April 20th by rocking a NASA orange suit, which may lead a skeptic to think this is all simply a viral marketing ploy for the 20th anniversary of the film Armageddon this summer.
