Political dynasties: Generational job security

On the downhill slide but unable to relinquish power, former President Bill Clinton misspeaks,  and spaces out while chewing on his tongue and in an attempt to ensure his scandal-plagued wife isn’t indicted, inappropriately maneuvers to meet clandestinely with U.S. Attorney General Loretta Lynch on the tarmac at Sky Harbor Airport — ostensibly to discuss his golf game and grandchildren. (wink, wink.)

The Clinton’s have been known as less than upstanding throughout their political careers which Bill jump-started in Arkansas when he first was elected Attorney General and then Governor. 

Prior to her stint in the U,S. Senate and appointment as Secretary of State (supported by both Jon Kyl and John McCain), Hillary busied herself threatening Bill’s female squeezes, declaring word of his numerous dalliances were part of the “vast right wing conspiracy.” His own staff was much more on target, referring to the ongoing revelations as “bimbo eruptions.” 

Now the New York Post reports that Chelsea Clinton is being groomed for a congressional seat when U.S. Rep. Nita Lowey, 79, retires. Just as most parents do, the Clinton’s purchased the $1.16 million house next door to theirs to guarantee Chelsea a residence within the congressional district

This political dynasty appears endless. Chelsea’s husband, Marc Mezvinsky is the son of Edward Mezvinsky, a Democrat former U.S. Rep. who represented Iowa’s 1st congressional district from 1973-1977.  But the story doesn’t stop there. Freedom Outpost reports that Ed Mezvinsky was indicted — and pled guilty — to 31 of 69 counts of bank fraud, mail fraud, and wire fraud. He was finally caught embezzling more than $10 million through a Ponzi scheme he devised involving a Nigerian e-mail scam. He was sentenced to 80 months in federal prison.  After his release and probation, he still owes $9.4 million in restitution. ABC News carries an in-depth reportEd Mezvinsky’s former wife Marjorie Margolies-Mezvinsky — also a Democrat — is a former U.S. Rep. from Pennsylvania.

The large Kennedy family has had generations of family members holding elective office in several states — all as Democrats. Republicans are no slackers in this arena.  The Bush Family, produced father and son U.S. Presidents. George H. W. Bush and his son George W.  Hungry for the ultimate job, Jeb Bush, a former Governor of Florida generated no enthusiasm as a Republican presidential candidate. He might have fared better running as the liberal he is. Jeb’s son George P. Bush holds public office in Texas.

But, we digress.  Back to Chelsea. She and hubby Marc have two young children. Will they be put on this political conveyor belt for job security? It’s heady stuff having drivers and security details, and rooms full of people stand and applaud you for merely walking in. The pay isn’t bad either.  There’s even more if you start a “ Foundation.

    Just what America needs…more generational crooks. It’s inbred on both sides of the family.

    Chelsea and Marc’s kids have quite a family tree to swing in. And what a gene pool!!!!

    To say that I’m happy (ecstatic) that the country put an end to the head of the Clinton crime family’s tries for president is an understatement. By the time election day came along, I was OD’d on the Clinton’s and the news media. Today, I’m happy again – not seeing that screeching harridan lying about everything and anything. The whole Clinton clan is made up of lying, stealing, low-life grifters.

    I’m also glad that President-elect Trump shined the light on the Bush dynasty. They’re the original globalists. GWBush never secured the border – just shined us on about it. Poppy & Bar hated Trump but loved Bubba. I wonder if anyone in the Bush family voted Republican for president on the 8th. Jeb’s son is trying to hang on in politics by saying he supported Trump.

    This 2+ minute video is terrific:

    A news story that got little coverage over the summer:

    Chelsea’s husband ran his hedge fund into the ground (or into a underground Clinton vault) and his investors lost tens of millions of dollars.
    Because it is NY State, there was not one repercussion.
    But recall how Dinesh D’Souza was prosecuted by one of Obama’s U.S. Attorneys in NYC over a political donation of a few thousand dollars.

    New Balance:
    if you need a new pair of sneakers—please consider giving your business to New Balance.

    The corporate officers of New Balance back Trump.
    Which has caused Soros’ precious snowflakes to publicly burn their New Balance footwear.—
    lucky for the snowflakes that Soros instructed them to first remove the sneakers from their feet before torching them.

    Take a look at what is going on in the post-academic U.S., as reported in the New York Post online today:

    • The University of Michigan offered its traumatized students coloring books and Play-Doh to calm them.

    • The University of Kansas reminded its stressed-out kids that therapy dogs, a regular campus feature, were available.

    • Cornell University, an Ivy League school, held a campus-wide “cry-in,” with officials handing out tissues and hot chocolate.

    • Tufts University offered its devastated students arts and crafts sessions.

    • At campuses from elite Yale to Connecticut to Iowa and beyond, professors canceled classes and/or exams — either because students asked or because instructors were too distraught to teach.

    And this:
    Meanwhile, the CEO of Grubhub, the online food-delivery service, demanded that employees who agree with Trump resign, because “you have no place here.” (He had to retreat: His lawyers read him the First Amendment and noted that political discrimination also violates California law.)

    Did you happen to see that photo of John Kerry in Antarctica yesterday?
    He’s making a 9 country goodbye tour at our expense.
    His legacy?—–first Secretary of State to visit Antarctica. Really.

    I don’t even know if Helen Purcell won the election. What is taking so long for Arizona to count votes?? This is happening too often. It was announced days after the election that AZ’s 11 electoral votes went to Trump. Finally.

    The Clintons And Soros Launch America’s Purple Revolution | Zero Hedge

    Not only must Trump have to deal with Republican neocons trying to worm their way into his administration, but he must deal with the attempt by Soros to disrupt his presidency and the United States with a Purple Revolution

    The Purple Revolution will resist all efforts by the Trump administration to push back against the globalist policies of the Clintons and soon-to-be ex-President Barack Obama. The Purple Revolution will also seek to make the Trump administration a short one through Soros-style street protests and political disruption

    There ought to be a law: no descendent or blood relative of a president can hold an elected office. Think of the damage the Kennedy clan has inflicted.
