      **GUEST POST By Eric Anderson** If you don’t know where you are, you don’t know who you are. — Wendell Berry I’ve thought a lot about immigration in my time, and confess, I’ve never thought very highly of it. Which, of late, seems to be an extremely unpopular position among liberals. But it’s not that […]

Brief observations, Hillary Clinton edition.

Hillary says Tulsi is a Russian asset who is being groomed to be a spoiler third party candidate.

Tulsi protests too much, methinks.

But oddly enough, there are a LOT of people who are siding with…

…wait for it…

Hillary.

The argument is that she’s been right about everything else and maybe she knows something we don’t.

Ok.

Then yesterday, the State Department cleared her again on the email server thingy that will not die. Yep, it went through zillions of emails. No national security secrets were compromised.

Maggie Haberman announced that by twitter referencing the WaPo post. Then the NYTimes did it’s own post this morning.

In general, we’re seeing a lot fewer “Sit down and STFU, Hillary!” BS from the insidery punditry and stupid young journalists.

It’s almost like her reputation is being rehabilitated. That’s not a given. No one has to do this for her. So why now, three years into Trump’s term?

Maybe the powers that be have decided that they’ve gotten a whole lot out of the Republican Party and Trump and the country will struggle mightily to overcome the entrenched plutocracy going forward?

Maybe the sense is that the political vacuum that resulted in disrespecting Clinton and her 65000000 voters is counterproductive in times such as these?

Maybe the threat Trump poses to national security is alarming enough for journalists and other power brokers to finally break the glass and get Hillary on the rescue squad in some capacity?

IDK

Except that for Trump, it sure must feel like “the end is near”. Dogs and cats are actually living together.

Saw something earlier this morning about why a Mulvaney may still be working as acting chief of staff: he knows about all of the other stuff.
