Hillary Clinton to launch new political group to help fund The Resistance.

Courtesy of Politico:

Six months after losing the presidential election, Hillary Clinton is ready to wade back into politics. 

The former secretary of state is building a new political group to fund organizations working on the resistance to President Donald Trump’s agenda, spending recent weeks in Washington, New York City, and Chappaqua, N.Y., meeting with donors and potential groups to invest in, and recruiting individuals for the group’s board of directors, multiple people close to the two-time White House hopeful and people familiar with the group’s planning told POLITICO. 

She is looking to launch the group, expected to be called Onward Together — a nod to her campaign slogan, Stronger Together — as soon as next week, they say. Clinton’s spokesman declined to comment for this story.

This is good news for progressives, and definitely bad news for the Trumpsters.

Hillary has proven herself as a fund raiser, and if she gets her husband involved there is really no limit to the money they can pull in to help fund candidates, ad campaigns, and activist organizations.

Somebody actually had the temerity to compare this to Sarah Palin's "all about me" PAC. As if because they are both women these two people would have ANYTHING in common.

This organization will have a board of directors, and trust me when I say that all of its actions will be aggressively scrutinized by the media, so the possibility that it would be some vanity operation designed to fill Hillary's pantsuit pockets with free cash is ridiculous on its face.

And remember Bernie Sanders and Barack and Michelle Obama are launching similar enterprises and nobody seems to have a problem with that.

      " Nance discusses the DNC hack that began around March or April of 2016. Metadata left behind, led to WikiLeaks and a Russian intelligence organization which is a conglomeration of cyber spying groups codenamed Cyber Bears."

      The hack began much earlier. They started buying up little internet companies around the usa. Then used hackers, dirty county supervisors, sheriffs and others to begin harassing and setting people up such as University professors and others in positions. This evil group planned this baloney long before 2016. The Bundy show in Oregon is also associated. One must tie it all together to see the agenda. It was either trump or cruz to pull this off. It is the tea bag crazy loons from palin insane bunch of toothless useful idiots.

    2. So no one, unless they can claim to be the "future of the Democratic Party" is permitted to put forth any efforts in whatever areas or ways reflect their strengths to advance the American people?

      What do you mean by "another" slush fund?

      Clinton is intelligent, educated, understands policy, and still has a lot to contribute to the American people. Or do you believe that anyone past a certain age is no longer permitted to take part in public life?

    “They did it! Obamacare is finally, officially dead!” Stephen Colbert said in his Late Show monologue Thursday night, before adding, “…is something they can say once the bill goes to the Senate then gets out of committee, is debated on the floor where amendments can be added, then the Senate votes on their bill, which is sent to the conference committee where the differences between the two bills are ironed out, then voted on in the House and Senate again, the sent to the White House for the president to sign.”

    Colbert was openly mocking the very “premature” celebration that happened in the White House Rose Garden after House Republicans managed to narrowly pass their Obamacare repeal and replace bill along party lines. “Which is why Republicans were chanting, ‘We’re number one… third of the way through a very complex process!’” the host joked.

    Even though they “haven’t accomplished anything yet,” Trump and his party spent the afternoon celebrating. Besides the cases of beer spotted rolling into Capitol Hill, Colbert said they also dined on “unhatched chickens.” In fact, there was “so much food,” he added, “they had to bring it in on cart before a horse.”

    And then there was White House Chief of Staff Reince Priebus, who was quoted as saying, “The president stepped up and helped punt the ball into the end zone.” (The reporter later clarified that he may have said “punch,” not punt.)

    “Accurate, because it gets you zero points and gives your opponent good field position,” Colbert said in response. But he had an even better metaphor: “The GOP just kicked America in the balls.”

      "Richardson said last week on “The Jim Bakker Show.” "Richardson claimed that the latest protests weren’t really against Trump because “the scriptures say they gather and they plot ultimately against the Lord and against his anointed.”Bakker said. “In every city, they’re marching, they’re all doing this, who’s setting this up? And yet the reporters all believe it. They’re feeding us a lie: America’s unrest.”

  5. Big deal. It doesn't matter how much money you raise if you sit on it.

    The DCCC had plenty of money they could have used to support candidates but they didn't. Those candidates lost by very small margins because the DCCC considered their runs to be lost causes so didn't bother to give them any support until the very last minute when it made a good show but was essentially useless.

    So no. I'm not giving any more money to the Democrats until they can demonstrate they have pivoted and are actively working for all Democratic challengers, not just the ones they think will win. All 50 states. Every election from the very local to the Federal level. They need a complete change in philosophy, strategy and tactics or they are going to lose 2018 and 2020.

    Time's a wasting.

    Hillary Clinton has nothing to lose because she doesn’t have to run for anything. And so she’s playing with house money when it comes to her new group Onward Together. She’ll be free to fight back against Trump in the kinds of ways that those still running for office only wish they could. This is about to get fascinating.

      10:50 am here. The replies to me above are just what Democrats should not be doing to each other as Trump rages through the White House. I'm not a "wingnut" to think we should pay less attention to Hillary's bruised feelings and ego - and our own - and more attention to how we lost so many people who voted for Barack Obama. This is how Palin worshippers treat each other at the Pee Pond - no one can deviate from unquestioning reverence for the Dear Leader. Hillary Clinton has many great qualities. Political skill is not among them. She was beaten by one of the world's best people, Barack Obama, and the absolute worst, Donald Trump. She is now refusing to admit her own part in bringing Trump to power, and that makes it harder for Democrats to take a hard, honest look at how we could lose to Trump. The worst person in our country. Clinton needs to exit the public stage so we can move on. And if you disagree with me fine, but why call me names? If we can't unite as Democrats, Trump will have 8 years. And people will suffer, horribly.

    DIVERT>"haffetz asks for details on 21 cases in which charges or warrants were dropped."
    "In reality, many of the men — and 14 other Iranian fugitives not named publicly by the top Obama officials — had been accused or convicted of charges stemming from their alleged involvement in clandestine networks supplying Iran with parts and technology for its weapons, ballistic missile and nuclear programs, POLITICO reported. The Justice Department itself had characterized many of them as threats to national security, the investigation found."

    O/T...Two days before the French election someone hacked into Macron's emails and released tons of documents.Vlad strikes again. Luckily the French see through this fascist crazy LePen and he's 25 points ahead.

    Putin gave her $10,000,000 to help her campaign. If she won she wanted to take France out of Nato and that would have greatly weakened Europe. Too bad Americans weren't as smart.
