No better day than today for Hillary Clinton to have been so honored! Congratulations, Hillary!


Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton will talk about her loss in the 2016 presidential election and the political climate in the U.S. a year later as she receives the 2017 Democratic Woman of the Year Award.

Hillary Clinton will accept the 2017 Democratic Woman of the Year Award around 4:30 p.m. ET. Watch live in the player above.

The award, given by the Woman’s National Democratic Club, is “in recognition of her extraordinary contributions to American politics and international affairs, as well as the inspiration she has provided to women and girls around the world.”

The award comes weeks after Clinton released her latest book, “What Happened,” which detailed her 2016 campaign and her loss to President Donald Trump.

Donna Brazile and Elizabeth Warren can go wash Bernie’s socks.

WASHINGTON — Hillary Clinton received a Democratic Woman of the Year Award — who else would it be? — at the Women’s National Democratic Club on Thursday, and the first tears were shed about three minutes after she took the stage.

In a room full of purple suffragist sashes and elected officials, Nuchhi Currier, the president of the organization, choked up when she said the outcome of the election — 358 days ago — was “very different from what had been anticipated.”

Mrs. Clinton’s appearance signaled the continuation of the Democratic mourning process that has persisted since the election, even as drama continues to mark her campaign. On Thursday, Politico published a first-person article by Donna Brazile, the former chair of the Democratic National Committee, who wrote that the Clinton campaign in 2016 controlled the committee and rigged the nomination process. Senator Elizabeth Warren, Democrat of Massachusetts, made the same accusation on CNN on Thursday.

Ms. Brazile also wrote that the Clinton campaign had used a joint fund-raising agreement that would grant it control over strategy in exchange for raising funds. Ms. Brazile characterized the agreement as a “cancer” for the Democratic Party.

Through a spokeswoman, officials for the party disagreed.

“Joint fund-raising committees were created between the DNC and both Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders in attempt to raise the general election funds needed to win in 2016,” Xochitl Hinojosa, the communications director for the committee, wrote in an email on Thursday. “Clinton was the only candidate who raised money for the party through her joint fund-raising committee with the DNC, which would benefit any candidate coming out of the presidential primary process.”

It began with this.

WE STAND WITH DONNA!

Donna Brazile is an amazing woman and strong Democrat who has fought tirelessly to protect our voting rights, provided a voice for the voiceless and championed issues like increasing the min wage and equal pay for women. We stand with Donna, because Donna stands and has always stood with US! Looking forward to her continued service on the DNC as she consistently puts people first!

I received it in Mark Murphy’s name.  Mark is my friend. The message was that elements were trying to push Donna Brazile out of the Democratic Party. That didn’t seem fair, so I signed.

Then came an email request from Donna to donate to the party. So I did. In support.

Today’s breaking news, starting with an excerpt in Politico and followed by stories in several major publications  including The Daily Beast, The New York Post, and Newsweek to name a few, that Donna Brazile has a book out in which she supposedly describes how Hillary Clinton “took over” the Democratic Party (CNN is using the verb “hijacked”) came as a shock.

I will not link to any of the articles. What I can tell you is that DB is trending on Twitter and a good deal of of the comments are calling her out for her lies and her self-promotion. Here are a few examples, but you should go look for yourself. Some retweeting wouldn’t hurt while you’re there.

On Facebook, all my PUMA friends suddenly came roaring through!

After Hillary accepted Secretary of State, I purged most of the PUMA posts here although I have occasionally referred to our angry coalition. I didn’t want to affect opinions of Hillary’s work.

But now the game has changed. We thought, in supporting DB these past few weeks, that we were supporting the traditional Dem Party. Now it appears that Donna has tossed her support toward Bernie, who remains an Independent, and his “revolution” that wants to drive the party far to the left.

It all smells like political treachery, self-promotion, and week-old jambalaya. We are not having it!

If you missed Hillary Clinton’s appearance with Trevor Noah Wednesday night, you can catch it here.>>>>


Hillary Clinton’s still on book tour; Wednesday night she stopped by The Daily Show where Trevor Noah wanted to talk about The Dossier – “The document involving Donald Trump and pee”  which the DNC and her campaign”  shelled out some money to research.

“Is there difference between your team paying for this opposition research and Donald Trump’s people working with the Russians to influence the elections?” Noah asked Clinton.

“Of course there is,” Clinton said, saying she thinks “most serious people understand that.”

She explained to Noah’s viewers the research was begun by a Republican during the primary. But when Trump got the nomination for the Republican party, that other GOP candidate stopped bankrolling so the “people doing it came to my campaign lawyer and said, ‘Would you like us to continue it?’ He said yes,” Clinton explained. “He’s an experienced lawyer, knows that the law is. He knows what opposition research is.”

New Yorkers are resilient. They still turned out for the Halloween Parade! New York Strong!

Fittingly, Hillary Clinton was awarded the inaugural Eleanor Roosevelt Social Justice Award. Eleanor would be proud. Congratulations, Mme. Secretary! Very well-deserved.

 


Roosevelt University honored Hillary Clinton for her lifetime commitment to social justice with the inaugural Eleanor Roosevelt Social Justice Award on Oct. 30 at the Auditorium Theatre.

Roosevelt University officials, including Board of Trustees Chair Patricia Harris, presented the award on stage at the theatre following Clinton’s public appearance for her book tour and new book, What Happened.

“Your life’s work resonates with Eleanor Roosevelt’s statement that ‘We must be able to show people that democracy is not about words, but action,’” Roosevelt University President Ali R. Malekzadeh said in honoring Clinton.

Hillary was back in the state where she was born and raised while the indictment dominated the news along with the surprise guilty plea of former Trump staffer, George Papadopoulos. Hillary promised a great chapter on Russia. Indeed, it is an important segment in her book.


On the heels of the federal indictment of President Donald Trump‘s former campaign chairman Paul Manafort, Hillary Clinton made the rounds of the Chicago area Monday in support of her new book that examines the historic election.

“I have a great chapter about Russia in here,” Clinton told members of the media as she signed copies of her book “What Happened” at the Book Stall in Winnetka. It was the only public comment Clinton made during her suburban visit regarding the latest events surrounding Manafort.
