Donald Trump thanked his deceased parents and older brother Fred. He thanked his siblings. He thanked his beautiful wife Melania. He thanked his handsome children. Then Donald Trump thanked the people of New Hampshire.
FOX reporter Ed Henry told Neil Cavuto today the Hillary Clinton canvassers in New Hampshire are from Washington DC.
“We’re outside a field office her and what we’re seeing are a couple of interesting things. Hillary’s trying to say she’s not giving up here even though she’s been down by double digits to Bernie Sanders. What would you expect her to say? Of course, she doesn’t want to give up she wants to keep pushing. What is interesting on the ground here is I’ve been running into a lot of people here in Nashua with Hillary Clinton signs and stickers on their jackets who I recognize from Washington DC. They’re not voters here, they’re volunteers.”
Two stalwart New Hampshire Republicans — Judd Gregg and John Sununu — say the party needs to coalesce around an alternative to anti-establishment insurgents Donald Trump and Ted Cruz — and fast.
Arguing that either Trump and Cruz would be a general election disaster, Gregg and Sununu told a Bloomberg Politics breakfast that the winnowing starts with Tuesday’s primary in New Hampshire and should be pretty much done after the South Carolina primary on Feb. 20.
“If four people come out of South Carolina, we’re headed into a brokered convention,” said Gregg, a former governor and senator from New Hampshire who backs Jeb Bush.
Sununu, a former governor of New Hampshire, is neutral in the Republican race except for Trump and Cruz: “I think they’re both terrible.”
The nomination of either would lead to a Republican defeat in the fall and loss of control in the U.S. Senate, they said.
Gregg and Sununu said the candidates vying for the establishment vote right now are splitting the mainstream GOP voting bloc.
The longer more Republicans stay in, Sununu said, the more likely “a convention that starts undecided” on the identity of the nominee.
Welcome to the New Europe — Where girls and boys are no longer safe at the swimming pool.
Last year Europe welcomed over one million third world immigrants.
This year they are expecting another million.
So expect more stories like this in the coming weeks.
A Iraqi migrant raped a 10 year-old boy at a Vienna swimming pool.
The migrant said it was a “sexual emergency” and he couldn’t help himself.
A 10-year-old boy was so brutally raped by an Iraqi migrant in a cubicle at The Resienbad (pictured) pool in Vienna on December 2 and he had to go to hospital because of his injuries. (The Daily Mail)
According to local news site Kronen Zeitung, the boy screamed for somebody to help but nobody heard him. [MORE…]
Now the boy’s mother is speaking out.
The mother of the boy who was raped by an Iraqi migrant in a swimming pool in Austria, says she regrets teaching her children to be welcoming to migrants.
The boy’s mother Dunja, (pictured in local media) who arrived in Austria as an immigrant in the 90s from Serbia during the Civil War, said she had always taught her five children to offer the same hospitality to new arrivals that she had herself received. (Daily Mail)
The boy’s mother says her son has been crying himself to sleep every night since the brutal attack. The Daily Mail reported:
The mother of the boy who was raped by an Iraqi migrant in a swimming pool in Austria, has said she regrets teaching her children to be welcoming to migrants and described the man’s defence as ‘just monstrous’.
The boy’s mother Dunja, who arrived in Austria as an immigrant in the 90s from Serbia during the Civil War, said she had always taught her five children to offer the same hospitality to new arrivals that she had herself received.
Upon hearing her son’s attacker’s claim he had ‘too much sexual energy’, Dunja criticised his defence as ‘just monstrous’ and insisted he should be sent to prison and then be deported. She said she ‘regretted’ teaching her children to be welcoming to migrants.
The boy, known only as Goran, had to be hospitalised with serious injuries and his mother said her son has been crying himself to sleep every night since the attack.
Rep. Joe Wilson was right.
The South Carolina Congressman screamed, “You lie!” when Barack Obama told Americans the Affordable Care Act would not cover illegal immigrants.
Over 500,000 illegal immigrants received Obamacare subsidies. FOX News reported:
Illegal immigrants and individuals with unclear legal status wrongly benefited from up to $750 million in ObamaCare subsidies and the government is struggling to recoup the money, according to a new Senate report obtained by Fox News.
The report, produced by Republicans on the Senate Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee, examined Affordable Care Act tax credits meant to defray the cost of insurance premiums. It found that as of June 2015, “the Administration awarded approximately $750 million in tax credits on behalf of individuals who were later determined to be ineligible because they failed to verify their citizenship, status as a national, or legal presence.”
The review found the credits went to more than 500,000 people – who are illegal immigrants or whose legal status was unclear due to insufficient records.
The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services confirmed to FoxNews.com on Monday that 471,000 customers with 2015 coverage failed to produce proper documentation on their citizenship or immigration status on time – but stressed that this does not necessarily mean they’re ineligible.
“Lack of verification does not mean an individual is ineligible for financial assistance, but only that a Marketplace did not receive sufficient information to verify eligibility in the time period outlined in the law,” CMS spokesman Aaron Albright said.
Carolina Panthers quarterback Cam Newton was obviously upset following his team’s loss to the Denver Broncos in Super Bowl 50. But NFL players are required to answer questions of the media. Newton, the NFL MVP this year, offered little more than one word answers to reporters’ questions.
He sat there like a pouty baby until he walked off in the middle of the interview.
On Monday Steve Malzberg from Newsmax TV trashed Cam Newton for his adolescent behavior his Super Bowl defeat. NFL Great Deion Sanders also slammed Cam after the game last night.
Malzberg also goes off on Beyonce’s cop hating act.
So now Obama is sending US troops back to Afghanistan.
Obama finally figured out they’re not our friends.
What a horrible leader. The Guardian reported:
Hundreds of additional US troops are slated to deploy to a volatile province in Afghanistan to bolster the local military against a resurgent Taliban, the Guardian has learned.
By month’s end, a force described as battalion-strength, consisting of mostly army soldiers, will arrive in Helmand province where US and UK forces have struggled in battles for over a decade to drive out the Taliban.
In keeping with Barack Obama’s formal declaration that the US is not engaged in combat, despite elite forces recently participating in an hours-long battle in Helmand, defense officials said the additional troops would not take part in combat. But they will help the existing Helmand force defend itself against Taliban attacks, officials said.
At the Saturday night ABC GOP debate businessman Donald Trump told the Republican crowd he supported eminent domain.
Jeb Bush attacked him for this position despite the fact that his family used eminent domain to build a Texas baseball park.
Now there’s video of conservative Ted Cruz supporting eminent domain too.
From the video: Eminent domain (United States, the Philippines), compulsory purchase (United Kingdom, New Zealand, Ireland), resumption (Hong Kong), resumption/compulsory acquisition (Australia), or expropriation (South Africa, Canada, Brazil) is the power of a state or a national government to take private property for public use. However, it can be legislatively delegated by the state to municipalities, government subdivisions, or even to private persons or corporations, when they are authorized to exercise the functions of public character.
The property may be taken either for government use or by delegation to third parties, who will devote it to public or civic use or, in some cases, to economic development. The most common uses of property taken by eminent domain are for government buildings and other facilities, public utilities, highways, and railroads. However, it may also be taken for reasons of public safety, as in the case of Centralia, Pennsylvania. Some jurisdictions require that the condemnor make an offer to purchase the subject property, before resorting to the use of eminent domain.
This was so disturbing.
A young black male knocked out an unsuspecting old man on a street corner as his friends filmed the assault and laughed.
They all laughed as the old man collapsed on the street.
Via WorldStar posted this week:
Here’s the update–
Two teens were arrested in Paterson, New Jersey for assaulting the innocent elderly man. The Paterson Times reported:
Two city teens have been charged with assaulting an unsuspecting elderly man as he attempted to cross an intersection, the video of which went viral on social media sparking widespread condemnation and a police investigation.
Police have identified and charged a 16-year-old and a 17-year-old with aggravated assault and endangering an injured victim for the vicious unprovoked attack on the victim as he attempted to cross the intersection of Rosa Parks Boulevard and Van Houten Street, according to police.
Police director Jerry Speziale said the assailant shown in the video sucker punching the defenseless old man is the 17-year-old while the voice egging him on from outside of the camera vantage point is the 16-year-old.
Speziale said the 16-year-old filmed the assault which went viral on Thursday forcing a police response. He said the boy surrendered to police at 5 p.m. on Saturday.
The 17-year-old assailant remains at large and is currently being sought by police. Anyone with information about his whereabouts is being urged to contact police.
Police cannot release further information about the suspects because of their age, said the director.
In August Hillary Clinton said she did not email any classified material to anyone on her home server.
This was a lie.
Hillary also said the federal email investigation was “nonsense.”
The FBI confirmed on Monday there is an active investigation of Hillary Clinton’s private email server. The Washington Examiner reported:
An FBI official issued a rare acknowledgement of the bureau’s investigation into Hillary Clinton’s private server use Monday in a letter filed in federal court.
Although FBI Director James Comey confirmed the existence of the probe in October of last year, agency officials have repeatedly declined to comment on the nature of the investigation and the direction in which it is headed.
James Baker, general counsel for the FBI, wrote in a letter filed in a Freedom of Information Act lawsuit that the FBI “has acknowledged generally that it is working on matters related to Secretary Clinton’s use of a private email server.”
Baker declined to elaborate on the “specific focus, scope or potential targets” of the investigation, arguing the probe could be compromised if he did so.
Metro police investigated 188 murders – a number barely blunted by the knowledge that it could have been worse. As we pointed out in an early October cover story, the city had been on pace to hit 200 slayings by New Year’s. Only a merciful slowdown in the final months kept St. Louis from reaching a level of carnage it hadn’t touched since 1995, when 204 were killed.
St. Louis beat out Memphis, Detroit, Baltimore, Rockford, and Chicago to become the most violent city in the United States in 2015.
The number of St. Louis homicides reached 188 in 2015, the highest number since 1995.
Richard Rosenfeld, a professor of criminology at the University of Missouri-St Louis, says the Ferguson riots had nothing to do with the rise in violent crime in the area. Obviously, he is confused. The homicide chart clearly shows an increase after Michael Brown’s shooting death in August 2014.
Beyonce and her dancers raise the Black Power fist at Super Bowl 50.
Beyonce’s Super Bowl halftime performance was a cop-hating political statement is support of the Black Panthers – a Marxist group whose leader Huey Newton was was arrested for shooting Police Officer John Frey.
Beyonce’s performance included only black dancers – who gave the Black Panther salute to the international audience.
Celebrities love to trash police officers these days because it will get you a great little editorial write-up in the New York Times. So when Beyonce sang her anti-police song at the Super Bowl, it made it all the more ironic that this happened just before the show.
*Ugh* Would someone please primary this old RINO out of office. ISIS blows the heads off of a string of infidels
John McCain today compared the United States to ISIS and Hirohito’s Japanese forces in World War II.
McCain was a guest on Outnumbered today. The senior Arizona senator also said Bush officials lied about waterboarding. Horrible.
John McCain: Abu Ghraib shocked the world. Abu Ghraib was a great propaganda tool for them. We tried Japanese generals and hung them for war crimes. One of the crimes was waterboarding… This is a near death experience. They will tell that person who’s administering that anything they want to hear. And when someone says it led to Osama bin Laden they’re lying. And what we got was a whole lot of bad information from these people. Second of all, are we going to subject people to torture? Is that what the United States is all about?…
Andrea Tantaros: Senator then do you believe administration officials in the Bush administration, the former Attorney General. Do you believe they are lying?
John McCain:I believe they are lying when they said they got useful information… Do we want to be on the same plane as those people who are chopping off heads of people?
And he’s a Republican!
McCain then said waterboarding should be allowed if there is a nuclear threat(?)
What a confused old RINO.
In February 2013 Obama Secretary of Defense Leon Panettaadmitted information from waterboarding led to Osama bin Laden.
UPDATE:Kelli Ward is running in the Republican primary to replace John McCain.
Another brilliant move by someone who feels more strongly about politics than the cause he supposedly cares about.
New Hampshire based Liberty House turned down a large donation from Donald Trump because they didn’t want to appear like they were supporting his campaign.
Because politics trump care for veterans. The Weekly Standard reported:
The Daily Beast is reporting that a small New Hampshire-based veterans charity has turned down a six figure check from Donald Trump. Liberty House turned Trump’s money away because they objected to it being given to them in a public setting: a campaign rally for Trump.
The Beast’s Tim Mak has more:
On Friday, Liberty House executive director Keith Howard received a call from a Trump campaign staffer, who conveyed that Trump would like to publicly present them with a six-figure check at a Londonderry rallyon Monday, right before the Granite State primary.
It’s an enormous amount of money for a small charity. But Howard said he wouldn’t do it—risking the entire, substantial donation on a point of principle.
Howard, a 57-year-old Army vet, objected to the use of veterans for political purposes. He doesn’t believe that his charity—which clothes the homeless, feeds the needy, and provides housing to 10 formerly homeless vets—should be presented with money by a political candidate at a political rally.
“This is not directed at the Trump campaign,” Howard said. “This is about any campaign.”
So this is the latest Republican establishment (GOPe) talking point…
Former Governor John Sununu, a Jeb Bush supporter, told America’s Newsroom if Donald Trump only wins New Hampshire by 12 points he loses–
Keep telling yourself that, John.
“I think Trump will win. I don’t think he’ll win by as much as he thinks he is and as much as the polls say. If he doesn’t win by 12 points I think the perception will be that he lost.’
Beyonce and her dancers raise the Black Power fist at Super Bowl 50.
Beyonce’s Super Bowl halftime performance was a cop-hating political statement is support of the Black Panthers – a Marxist group whose leader Huey Newton was was arrested for shooting Police Officer John Frey. The Guardian reported:
With references to the Black Lives Matter movement, Malcolm X and the Black Panthers, Beyoncé’s half-time show at the Super Bowl on Sunday might be the most radical political statement from the superstar in her 20-year career.
Backing dancers wearing Black Panther-style berets and clad in black leather were photographed after the performance posing with raised fists evocative of the black power salute by Tommie Smith and John Carlos at the 1968 Olympic Games in Mexico City.
Snapped backstage, the dancers also held a picture with the slogan “Justice 4 Mario Woods”, who was shot dead last December by police in San Francisco, this year’s Super Bowl host city.
Beyonce’s racist performance included only black dancers – white girls were not allowed to participate.
If Bernie Sanders was serious about keeping big money out of politics he could start with his own party.

Over the past twenty five years, from 1989 to 2014, Koch Industries has donated $18,083,948 in political contributions to Republicans. While that seems like a large sum, it only ranks them as number 49 on the list of top all-time political donors – behind 18 different unions that support Democrats.
Here is the list of the top Democrat political donors and where they rank.

Media darling Senator Marco Rubio embarrassed himself at the ABC GOP Debate on Saturday night.
Rubio couldn’t stop repeating his rehearsed lines and sounded like a broken record.
FOX News put together a montage of Marco Rubio’s rehearsed Obama line at tonight’s GOP Debate.
Marco used the same rehearsed line about 5 times at debate.
And his performance cost him… Rubio sunk to fourth place in a flash poll by the Kasich campaign following the debate. The Politico reported:
An internal poll conducted on Sunday suggests that Marco Rubio’s fumbled debate performance has damaged his prospects heading into the New Hampshire primary.
The poll, conducted by the pro-John Kasich New Day for America Super PAC, shows Rubio plummeting to fourth place in the primary here, with 10 percent of the vote. Most of the polling conducted in the immediate days before the debate showed Rubio in second place.
The survey, which was based on phone calls to 500 likely voters (margin of error plus or minus 3 percent), was conducted Sunday, the day following the latest Republican debate. Rubio came under scathing attack from Chris Christie, who cast the first term Florida senator as too unready, ambitious, and superficial to occupy the Oval Office.
Donald Trump holds a wide lead in the survey, receiving 35 percent. He more than doubles runner-up Kasich, who has 15 percent. In third is Jeb Bush, with 13 percent. Behind Rubio in fifth and sixth place, respectively, are Christie and Ted Cruz. Both receive 8 percent.
The Carolina Panthers take on the Denver Broncos tonight in Super Bowl 50.
Consider this an open thread – Hope you enjoy the game, food, friends and commercials!
Here’s a nice background story on Bronco’s quarterback Peyton Manning–
Peyton Manning donated donated time and money to the Chattanooga terrorist shooting victims after jihadist Mohammod Youssuf Abdulazeez murdered four Marines and a Navy sailor in July.
ESPN forgot to mention that the killer was a jihadist and the shooting occurred in a gun-free zone but it still shows another side of Peyton Manning you may not have known about.
The ABC GOP Debate with Donald Trump scored the best ratings of the year so far.
The debate averaged a 9.3 household rating according to Nielson’s markets. CNN reported:
Bucking a trend of declining debate ratings, ABC’s Saturday night GOP face-off was the highest rated debate so far in 2016, according to overnight Nielsen ratings data.
The debate averaged a 9.3 household rating between 8:15 p.m. and 10:45 p.m. in Nielsen’s so-called metered markets.
The debate on Fox Business Network (a cable channel that is harder to find than ABC) had a 7.4 rating in mid January. The debate on Fox News Channel two weeks later — the one Donald Trump skipped — had an 8.4 rating.
Saturday’s GOP debate also far surpassed MSNBC’s Democratic debate earlier in the week which had a 3.3 household rating, a new low for the debates this season. That means the GOP debate had nearly three times the audience as the Democrat-Socialist debate earlier in the week.
The establishment media cheered Jeb Bush’s performance last night at the ABC GOP debate.
The media was particularly pleased with how Jeb went after Donald Trump on eminent domain.
Jeb slammed Trump for using eminent domain in his building projects.
But Jeb forgot to mention his family used eminent domain too – to build a baseball park.
Oops. The Hill reported:
Following attacks from primary rival Jeb Bush about his past use of eminent domain, Republican presidential hopeful Donald Trump on Sunday accused the Bush family of using the practice to build a baseball stadium in Texas.
“Eminent domain is a very important thing,” Trump said on ABC’s “This Week.” “Jeb Bush doesn’t understand what it means, and if you look into the Bush family – I found this five minutes ago – they used eminent domain for the stadium in Texas, where they own, I guess, a piece of the Texas Rangers.”
When host George Stephanopoulos said that was Jeb’s brother, former President George W. Bush, Trump said his point still stands.
“That doesn’t matter,” he said. “It was the Bush family. They used private eminent domain. He didn’t tell anybody this. So, I mean, he should have told people.”
“Maybe – he probably doesn’t know because I don’t think he even knows what eminent domain is,” he added. “But I just found that out five minutes ago.”
But, but, but… Border fences are racist and don’t work!

Tunisia completed its 200 kilometer border fence and wall with Libya this month.
The wall will protect the country from ISIS fighters.
The AP reported:
Tunisia’s defense minister has visited an anti-jihadi fence that’s being built on the country’s border with Libya to stop Islamist militants from entering Tunisian territory.
Defense Minister Farhat Horchani inspected the first completed part of the 196-kilometer (122-mile) fence Saturday, which aims to counter the threat from jihadi militants and render the entire border impassable by vehicles. Horchani said the project came about with financial assistance from Germany and the U.S.
Military personnel and dozens of journalists were also given a tour of the defense structure, composed of sand alongside water-filled trenches and monitoring centers.
The fence initiative was announced last summer after two terrorist attacks in three months killed 59 foreign tourists and garnered world attention.
The US has an open border with Mexico. Trump says he will fix that.
A shocking video was released this week showing Arabic-speaking migrants hunting and attacking gay men in Berlin.
In the video you can see migrants with long pipes or sticks swinging at homosexual victims.
(Warning on violence)
This attack occurred at the Kottbusser Tor – a Berlin train station.
Via Vlad Tepes:
Brutal hunt at the Kottbusser Tor in Berlin
Two homosexual men were chased by a bunch of migrants at the Kottbusser Tor. Two days ago, the Tagesspiegel did report about the escalating situation at Kottbusser Tor in Berlin, but they left out essential details.
Only now it’s been discovered through a single remark in the Tagesspiegel, that three weeks ago at the Kottbusser Tor in Berlin Kreuzberg two gay men were chased and beaten with belts by an angry mob of arabic speaking men. On the video one can hear how the two men scream in panic.
In the Tagesspiegel it was reported that, “in the past months it has become a daily occurrence that people are being surrounded, during which wallets, cell phones and hand bags are being stolen. If that won’t work, people are being beaten, sprayed with irritant gas, or knives are brandished. Several women are groped on their private parts, or beaten in the face – as happened two weeks ago. Or the victims would be chased hundreds of meters – as happened three weeks ago as an angry mob chased and beat two gay men with belts and kicking them as the two men were screaming in panic. There is a video of the incident.”
The voices in the video of the person filming are commenting the event in turkish and they’re speaking of arabic men participating in the incident. That is why one can assume the offenders all have a migrant background.
A vote for Bernie Sanders is a vote for pain, suffering, debt, massive debt, murder and food lines.
After 18 years of Bernie Sanders style Socialism inflation in Venezuela is at 720%.
Store shelves are empty. Food lines in Venezuela.
Socialism in Venezuela have led to massive shortages of food, toilet paper, diapers and medicine.
Venezuela, with the world’s largest oil reserves, must now import oil.
This is what idiot Sanders supporters want for America. Investors.com reported:
It’s worrisome that so many Americans see socialism in a favorable light these days. A May 2015 YouGov poll showed that socialism was viewed favored favorably by 43% of Democrats, while a June 2015 Gallup poll showed that 47% of Americans would vote for a socialist.
It points to a collective loss of memory. After all, it’s been decades since the fact that the Berlin Wall fell and the Soviet empire collapsed. As chess champion Garry Kasparov has noted in “Winter Is Coming,” there have been no truth commissions or victory parades to institutionalize the monstrous idea’s discreditation and demise. In fact, the idea seems to be resurging in the U.S. Democratic Party, even with examples of its failures continuing, the latest example being Venezuela.
That reality of socialism and its horrific results is mocked by Sanders himself, who denies it has anything to do with his own ideas. “I myself don’t use the word socialism,” he told a University of Vermont student publication in 1976 “because people have been brainwashed into thinking socialism automatically means slave-labor camps, dictatorship and lack of freedom of speech.”
Brainwashed? The very word comes from socialist indoctrination practices. Sanders’ flip dismissal of those realities reminds us of a quote from Nobel Prize winner and author of “The Gulag Archipelago” Aleksander Solzhenitsyn: “Or do they refuse to see?” Yes, Sanders and his followers refuse.
Even the absence of slave-labor camps, in say, socialist Venezuela, doesn’t get Sanders off the hook. Right now Venezuelans are at the logical conclusion of 18 years of democratic socialism, the kind Sanders has praised in the past, and even benefited from, as he accepted Venezuelan strongman Hugo Chavez’s oil largesse — stolen from Venezuela’s people — for Vermont.
Today Venezuela, with the world’s largest oil reserves is, believe it or not, importing oil. It’s a perfect illustration of Nobel-winning economist Milton Friedman’s well known saying that if the Sahara took up socialism, there would soon be a shortage of sand.
Socialism has also led to massive shortages of food, toilet paper, diapers and medicine, among many other things, all the result of state planning and currency controls and rampant inflation. After 18 years of socialist spending, inflation has hit 720%, the IMF says. And don’t forget that Venezuela also has the world’s highest crime rate, with Caracas rated the world’s most dangerous city by the Citizens’ Council for Public Security and Criminal Justice.
Paula Jones, a former state employee whose allegations of sexual harassment dogged President Bill Clinton throughout his administration, was photographed appearing at a rally for presidential candidate Donald Trump in Little Rock Wednesday.
In a photograph taken by the Arkansas Democrat-Gazette’s Benjamin Krain, a woman identified as Jones can be seen in the crowd reaching toward Trump.
A video of the event posted on YouTube shows Trump greeting fans as he walks off the stage. People can be heard yelling “Paula Jones,” to focus the candidate’s attention toward her.
Jones is then shown saying “I want a selfie,” which she then takes with Trump.
Madeleine Albright Tells Young Women Voters ‘There’s A Special Place In Hell’ For Them If They Don’t Support Hillary
Former Sec. of State Madeleine Albright attempted to shame young women voters at a Hillary Clinton campaign event on Saturday, repeating her now-famous line: “There’s a special place in hell for women who don’t help each other.”
Albright joined New Jersey Sen. Cory Booker at a rally in Concord, N.H., just days before the nation’s first presidential primary of the 2016 campaign.
The 78-year-old diplomat, who served in the Bill Clinton White House, complained that some young women “don’t understand the importance of why young women have to support Hillary Clinton.”
“The story is not over, they’re going to want to push us back. Appointments to the Supreme Court make all the difference,” Albright said of Republicans, adding that young women “have to help” and that “Hillary Clinton will be there for you.”
“Just remember: there’s a special place in hell for women who don’t help each other,” Albright said, much to the joy of Clinton, who is seen laughing at the remark, which she has used numerous times in the past.
Here’s the video:
What an awful thing to say to women.
Their vote should only be determined by their gender?
Can you even imagine what the press would say if a Republican suggested some women have a special place in Hell reserved for them, based on their vote?
