With this being my second post about Hillary Clinton this week, I would like to take this time to mention I do not hate the Democratic Party (I think both parties are garbage). While I do identify with conservative Republican stances on things like big government, I do find myself in line with liberal democratic positions on issues such as marriage equality. . . That said let’s start this post.
January 18th – 21st was undoubtedly one of the worst weeks of the Hillary campaign; Ol’ Bernie killed her in the polls, and the IG found some awesome emails on her server. Media organizations from the “Fair and Balanced” FoxNews to the liberal sympathizer MSNBC all had extensive coverage of ‘emailgate’ making it more and more difficult for her supporters to defend her actions (though some still try) and spin these revelations into something positive. Jonas may just be her saving grace.
With Washington D.C. essentially closed for business, the state department has informed federal courts they will need until January 29th to make up the three days worth of missed work. Should the federal courts grant the State Departments’ extension request, the February 29th deadline for reporting an additional 7,000+ Hillary emails will be pushed. Now, I am not a math genius but I sure as heck know that three days worth of work does not take 30 days to make-up (then again it is the federal government). What I do know is that this extension will magically move the State Department’s reporting date to after the Iowa Caucus, New Hampshire Primaries, and the South Carolina Primaries.
Jonas and Jonas’s related events are also taking up just about every minute of local, regional, and national news coverage. In the last two days, there have been little to no mention of Hillary Clinton or her emails. The DrudgeReport’s homepage has replaced all Hillary stories with items related to Jonas. It seems the Hillary Campaign and the State Department found just the excuse they needed get this little email headache off the map for just long enough to find a new strategy to attack it or ignore it.
It’s not all good for Hillary though; this little winter storm will likely give Republican candidates like Chris Christie and Donald Trump to show their leadership as Jonas buries their states under snow. Chris Christy has already capitalized on the situation by suspending his campaign to conduct his gubernatorial duties (as he rightfully should). However, I have yet to see anything from the Donald, though I am sure his campaign is coming up with some way to show he can handle an emergency. Bernie Sanders will likely have nothing to gain from the storm. But as I write this I just received a report from the Associated Press that former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg is mulling a run for president. I wouldn’t be surprised if we see him using the storm to his advantage as well.
