Hillary attacks court ruling that was specifically about her

This is who Hillary Clinton is — a hypocritical censor.

On the campaign trail she has restated she is all for amending the Constitution to overturn the Supreme Court ruling in Citizens United.

Hillary Clinton

“I would consider supporting an amendment among these lines that would prevent the abuse of our political system by excessive amounts of money if there is no other way to deal with the Citizen’s United decision,” she is quoted as saying.

There are any number of stories recounting this, but few bother to recap what Citizens United was about. Yes, the ruling states the First Amendment protects the rights of corporations, unions and non-profits to spend money on political free speech.

The Citizens United case overturned the McCain-Feingold law that prohibited electioneering within 30 days of a primary election and 60 days of a general election. The law blocked Citizens United from airing a film called “Hillary: The Movie,” which called Hillary Clinton a manipulative liar.

Now she wants to obviate a court ruling that specifically said groups had a right to criticize her. That’s rich.

In 2012 Harry Reid and others tried to pass something called the DISCLOSE Act that would have blunted Citizens United. They blatantly misquoted and quoted out of context the Founders in order to push their censorship scheme.

    Was that the movie that said she killed Vincent Foster?

  2. No, that was Bill’s mistress’ cat.

  3. nyp says:

    His mistress’ cat? That one I hadn’t heard. I thought that the cat was involved in drug running at the Mena airport.

  4. Bruce Feher says:

    I heard “her” team is looking to raise 2.5 BILLION for her run.

  5. Steve says:

    Did you get to see that movie, Nyp?

  6. nyp says:

    Nope. What other pseudo-scandals did it talk about? Whitewater?

  7. Steve says:

    You know so much about it, you must have seen it.

  8. nyp says:

    never saw it. but these things are always the same.

  9. Steve says:

    Ahhh,,,prejudice.

  10. nyp says:

    I agree that it is pretty outrageous that Hillary Clinton would meet with Democratic supporters in Iowa. The woman is shameless.

  11. Steve says:

    What is certainly less than ethical is trying to make it look like the whole thing was just an off the cuff moment, Nyp.

    But this is the politics of mud wrestling, I would hope you extend the same courtesy to conservative candidates.

  12. nyp says:

    I’m not sure I have seen any evidence that Hillary Clinton’s coffee with supporters was promoted by her campaign as a spontaneous visit with random Iowa residents. But, perhaps it was. In any event, I promise not to criticize any Republican candidate running in a Republican party primary for meeting with Republican voters. Completely irrelevant to what matters.

  13. Winston Smith says:

    Hillary, the elite of the 1%, acting like she’s of the hoi polloi.

    Certainly, she doesn’t want one of these moments:

  14. nyp says:

    Hillary is “the elite of the 1%?

    Does that mean she’s like the 1% of the 1%?

    Wow. I had no idea.

  15. Steve says:

    Well……Hillary DOES believe she has her party in line this time…no surprises for her…unless Bernie Sanders decides to run!
    Socialism!

  16. nyp says:

    Yeah, we are pretty much united.

  17. Steve says:

    You always have been. Doesn’t matter who they call out,,,you guys blindly follow.

  18. nyp says:

    Right. Just like we all blindly followed Hillary in ’08.

  19. Steve says:

    Oh yes….even better,,,you guys bit the big one on that!

  20. Rincon says:

    So is Hillary getting away with murder or is this a swift boat type attack? We will never know because the news media cannot be trusted. Liars routinely wrap themselves in the first amendment.

  21. Winston Smith says:

    Hillary has nothing to worry about…she’s a woman…

  22. Is America really ready for another bout with the Clintons? Hillary…the female version of Brian Williams, and Bill…the white version of Bill Cosby? We can do better than this…I know we can!

  23. Steve says:

    Baggage….the Democrats running an establishment, angry, old white person while the other guys are trying to decide among several outsider minority races or political groups.

    Tell me again…which is the party of “change”?

  24. nyp says:

    Which “outsider minority races” are the Republicans trying to decide among?

  25. Steve says:

    Asked like the blind follower you are, nyp.

  26. nyp says:

    After you guys nominate Jeb Bush (which you will do) I assume that the ludicrous attacks on Hillary Clinton for being an “establishment, angry, old white person” will tamper down somewhat — right?

  27. Steve says:

    In the state of Nevada only those registered with a party may vote in that party’s primary. Independents vote in the primary only for non partisan offices.
    I am (and always have been) registered independent.
    Hence I will not have any say in which potential candidate the Republicans choose…kinda like you guys, Nyp. Your party has already chosen for you!

  28. nyp says:

    I am quite happy that Hillary Clinton has no real opposition and represents the consensus choice for Democratic nominee for President.

  29. Steve says:

    “the consensus choice for Democratic nominee ”

    HA! She was anointed LONG before any of you guys even had any potential say in the matter.

    Wait for Bernie Sanders to announce.

  30. Name one job Hillary has successfully completed.

  31. nyp says:

    A tip for you, Mr. Mitchell — you won’t get far arguing that Hillary lacks the qualifications to be President.

  32. Steve says:

    Yeah, cause Pat Paulson had all the necessary “qualifications to be President.” !!! So there! Ha!

  33. I was trying to remember the name of that comedian the other day. Thanks.

  34. Steve says:

    One year, Pat Paulsen also took almost a week to run the Boston Marathon. I remember seeing the travel trailer he slept in following him along the course.
