Republican Riot

Hopefully, after the final tally, I can change the subtitle to “The UNMAKING of the would-be last female president.” But for now the book that’s kept me away from my blog all these months is finished and available at Amazon, and funny. Please support it, as the bookshelf has woefully few Hillary humor offerings. Like zero. And it’s been an election year. Check out the Amazon page. It’s a fun ride in itself:


Buy a copy, and please share on facebook or twitter. I’m told that if even 30 people buy a copy in a single week, then the book will come up in an Amazon search for Hillary Clinton. It would be nice to have even one success before dying, so let’s please help that happen. Even if she loses, if you don’t get this book, Hillary wins. Don’t let Hillary win.

Two weeks ago, my husband was facebooking something about Kosovo.  And either the Google spell-checker, or the facebook system’s corrector, “corrected” him that he was misspelling “Kosovo.” That the proper spelling was “Kosova.”

I’d been wondering, since about 2002, how long it would be before that started happening. So I’ll mark it down in my memory as Summer 2016, unless someone has an earlier experience with it that they want to tell me about.

In separate news, I thought there was some interesting phrasing in this article about the righteous Turkish coup general from Kosovo (”righteous” if the coup really was what it seemed and not staged for purging purposes; meanwhile, I can’t seem to find out Gen. Adem Huduti’s fate). Huduti comes from a Bosniak family in Kosovo, and his relatives were quoted thus:

Another presumed relative of Huduti from his mother’s family, named in the news piece as Axhira, also said he was of Bosniak ethnicity. “He is Bosnian, not Albanian, we do not have anything [to do] with Albanians,” Axhira said.

Clearly, this Bosnian-Muslim family has ‘enjoyed’ the Albanian experience in Kosovo.

Alleged Coup Leader in Turkey ‘Born in Kosovo’ (Balkan Insight, July 18, by Ervin Qafmolla)

The most senior Turkish army commander arrested following the attempted coup in Turkey, Adem Huduti, General of the Second Army, was born in Kosovo, Turkish media said on Monday.

Following the failed coup by elements in the Turkish military, which began on Friday and ended in Saturday morning, about 6,000 individuals have been arrested, in what the Turkish government has dubbed a cleansing operation.

Kosovo media meanwhile reported that Huduti is a Bosniak in terms of his ethnic background, tracing his background to Recan, a village near the city of Prizren in Kosovo.

Klan Kosova, a Kosovo TV station, said that relatives of Huduti who belong to the Bosniak minority in Kosovo confirmed that he was not ethnically Albanian.

A person who claimed to be a relative from Recan, identified by the TV as “Ferati”, said the General was only five years old when he left Kosovo.

“He was born here on May 1952, and his family moved to Turkey in 1957,” Ferati said in Bosnian.

Another presumed relative of Huduti from his mother’s family, named in the news piece as Axhira, also said he was of Bosniak ethnicity. “He is Bosnian, not Albanian, we do not have anything [to do] with Albanians,” Axhira said.

While BIRN could not verify independently these claims, Huduti is a common surname among the Bosniak minority in the region of Prizen.

Again separately, the below was hilarious, and something I would have titled “Scared of Their own Shadow.” Because as we know, independent Kosovo was created in the shadow of jihad, a specter that loomed large as the unintended logical conclusion of “the Albanian struggle” that has turned Kosovo into a top contributor of ISIS recruits. Apropos to the observation that opened this blog, it seems that Israel National News was also “corrected” in its spelling of “Kosovo.” Something that appears to have been de-corrected in the article but not in the summary sentence at top.

40 wounded in Kosovo ISIS panic (Israel National News, Aug. 2, by Rachel Kaplan)

A crowd at a beer festival in Kosova panicked when someone in the crowd yelled “ISIS.” 40 people were wounded in the stampede

40 people were injured, two seriously, in a stampede at Kosovo’s Beer Fest, after someone yelled “ISIS” as a joke.

A beer festival in Prestina [sic], Kosovo’s capital, turned ugly when someone in the crowd yelled “ISIS.” As people ran for their lives, locals report that a gunshot was heard.

Similar reports indicate that a 15 year old boy was shot. The gun may have been fired in a panic. Around 20 percent of Kosovo’s citizenry owns firearms. [She means “carries” firearms, given that nearly 100% own them.]

People reportedly hid in alleys and smashed their way into buildings to find a place to hide.

Albaniball posted on social media site Reddit: “I was there. Right in the middle of the amphitheatre, dancing and suddenly people pressed against me. I didn’t hear shots so I was afraid some Islamist bastard was gonna blow up, was just waiting for the boom. On the other hand I tried to stand strong in order not to trip and get stamped. Fortunately…I left, but many people were wounded in the stampede, mostly girls.”

[In other words, Albanian males ran for their lives, over the females.]

Pontiffsully also reported on Reddit:

“I was there, in the left side of the crowd enjoying the music, then me and my 2 friends went to get more beer (the bars were towards the camera), after 2 minutes people started screaming and I turned around, everybody was running for their life (away from the middle).

“I was stuck between the bar and some people, I didn’t even hear the gunshots because the music was so loud. I heard some people scream “ISIS, ISIS!”, a lot of girls were crying. I was just expecting an explosion at that point. I thought about crossing the bar and hiding behind it, but then the music stopped and the guy singing (Lyrical Son) said something like ‘Everything is okay, nothing happened, please calm down’, but people were still running out, and I didn’t see anybody leading the crowd outside or anything, everyone was just running for their life.

“I looked for my friends but didn’t see them anywhere, I tried to call them but my phone didn’t work. Saw some people on the ground, one of them said “It’s ISIS, we are f******”, then I heard one young guy screaming “Allahu Akbar” (in a joking way), so I was confused as **** at the whole situation.

“I finally got out of the crowd and found my friends, the police was there en masse and the crowd was almost fully dispersed. One waiter from a nearby cafe shop was screaming his lungs out because he was angry people ran out without paying. Chairs, broken glasses were on the ground everywhere, some people fell on them.

“My guess: Either a guy trying to be macho and getting in a fight with someone, or some drunk…shooting in the air, because we still have a culture of shooting in the air to celebrate here. But still, because of recent events in Europe, people are getting more and more scared of public gatherings like this, because they assume that ISIS is going to attack us.”

In Election Year 2008, I recall thinking that here we are in the middle of jihad, and yet we’re having this rather quaint national fight about race. I felt in a time warp. Eight years later, jihad has ratcheted up from al Qaeda to ISIS, and from one major attack a year to one or two a month. And unbelievably, our race war throwback has escalated to the physical and is playing out in the streets regularly, this time in Milwaukee. After almost 50 years, Charles Manson is suddenly relevant again.

So much for the “post-racial president.”

Just wait ’til next year, and the “post-gender president.” Will women get to riot, shoot cops and pull people out of their cars? Boy am I gonna whoop it up then. I’ll be like the 50-foot woman rampaging through the suburban streets. Happy days. Go Progress!

Pamela Geller already has it. There are no details other than six are in custody for the crowd-mowing jihadi attack in Nice last week. The estranged wife of the Albanian man involved has been released and is not a suspect.

Pamela correctly interprets the media’s use of the word “Albanian” as planting doubt about the Muslimness of everyone involved. It was something that Jim Jatras and I mentioned on her radio show in 2007 — namely that the term “ethnic Albanian” became useful during the 1999 conflict, to not turn Westerners off from helping the Muslim side in the conflict against the Christian-Serbs we were setting up as the villain.

But recall that we witnessed the disappearance of the word “Albanian” from articles in the early 2000s, when the news coming out about them was less flattering than their plight as innocent victims of bloodthirsty Christians (e.g., drugs, prostitution, jihad, gangs). Instead, terms like “Yugoslavs” were used, and sometimes “Kosovars,” since no one would know what that was despite our having waged our last pre-9/11 war there, the war that closed the 20th century. The foreshadowing war (of what was to become commonplace in this century: pro-jihad NATO war).

In other words, after working so hard to prop up ethnic identity in multi-national Yugoslavia and dismantle that country into ethnically pure, Western-dependent statelets, our officials and media found themselves embarrassed by their clients, and started shrouding their ethnicity.

But now, with Muslims being undeniably out-of-control enough for even the world-in-denial to notice, the media and government goal is to shield the Islamic background of as many suspects as possible. And so “Albanian” has again become preferable, and media have gotten over their shyness in using it.

I’ll close with a sophomoric tangent, something that took me 17 years since the Kosovo war to notice. We all remember whose war it was. Hillary, Bill and Wesley aside, it was “Maddie’s War.” Namely, Madeleine Albright’s. It’s silly to even notice this, but look at the first three letters of her last name: Alb.

Then again, if Shakespeare had written the story, this might have been considered a telltale clue, a foreshadowing. It’s as if she were predestined to FTW ( “F–k The World”).

Ah, “if women ran the world…” indeed.

Get ready for the last female president.

There’s more news on Bosnia’s former grand mufti, reis-ul-ulema Mustafa Ceric, currently president of the World Bosniak Congress. The Bosnian-Serb news agency RTRS (Radio Televizija Republike Srpske) reported last week that Austria’s secret services have published some documents revealing that Ceric — whom I first heard of in 2006 from an “interfaith dialogue” at a Birmingham synagogue, of all things — founded the terrorist network that our NATO allied itself with in 1990s Bosnia and then Kosovo (where some of the foreign fighters were reassigned).

Below is a not very good Google translation from Bosnia’s Kurir. In the meantime, thanks, Austria. It’s long past time you started coming clean.

PUBLISHED DOCUMENTS OF AUSTRIAN SERVICES: Mufti Ceric created terrorist network in Bosnia and Herzegovina
BiH 05/24/2016

The main Bosnian Mufti Mustafa Ceric [was] the creator of the terrorist network in Bosnia and Herzegovina, according to the documents [of] Intelligence Service of Austria.

Banja Luka media published portions of documents of the Austrian Association for the Protection of the constitutional order in which as the creator of the terrorist network in BiH Mustafa Ceric [was] marked….

It was stated, namely, that in November 1992 [was] launched a project to stamp Serbs as a genocidal nation, which is Ceric, informed Alija Izetbegovic, who is from Saudi King Fahd received 400 million US dollars, reports RTRS who published the list of phone calls between members of the “El Mujahedin” with leading international terrorists.

Ceric, it is said, even in November 1992 an international conference on the protection of human rights in Bosnia and Herzegovina with the secretariat in Vienna. It brings together about a hundred representatives from more than thirty Islamic countries led by prominent figures of the Islamic world, after the leaders of extremist Islamist organizations.

The report furnished to the then President of the Presidency of Bosnia and Herzegovina Alija Izetbegovic, whose facsimile was published on the portal RTRS, states that the aim of this conference was that the Muslim world is familiar with the destructions of war, especially Muslims, and investment effort to urgently help the “right thing to BiH “. And in this regard is, as mentioned, the conference passed a 13 decision.

The Conference elected the Executive Committee and the Secretariat, and the first president of that board is elected Ceric.

Expert in the fight against terrorism Dzevad Galijašević …said that Ceric using the power of these organizations became reis-ul-ulema, or that can be directly linked to the first terrorist attacks in BiH.

“Shortly after the organization of this international conference we will have [had] virtually the first terrorist attack on the Council of the Islamic community, the murder of four persons, wounding Secretary Omerdić, killing former in-law and unika Reis Hadžiavdić, of course, since that time, the war will all be attributed to Serbian stray shells,” says Galijašević.

The Executive Board of the newly established Islamist organizations after the first meeting in Zagreb, again [met] in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia. With Ceric [leading], Salih Sabic [the] personal representative of Muslim leaders in Bosnia and Herzegovina[,] Alija Izetbegovic and renowned Islamic scholar Sheikh Mohammed al-Ghazali, it was agreed that the goal of this organization is spreading the truth about the genocide against Bosnian Muslims.

Saudi King Fahd supported [the] Ceric project with 400 million US dollars, with 20 million [from] Qatar and the Emirates. “It is important to point out that in October 1992 the three cities mentioned genocide against Bosnian Muslims, although by then we did not have any serious war conflicts. Even then [it could be seen] that the project stamping Serbs [had] started and that it is pushed to the highest level [of the] Islamist [elite,]” says Galijašević.

The Islamist elite, in his words, launched a strong chain of support and pressure on terrorist groups during the war [and they] began to come in[to] BiH. The first one, [he] recalls, came Sheikh Abdelaziz[,] called Barbarossa - the first commander of the mujahideen in Bosnia.

The document [shows phone calls of the] military intelligence war administration [of the] BH Army…[T]here are phone numbers and faxes to members of the “El Mujahedin” [regarding] sending items. Among them are the phone numbers of Abu Musab al - Zarqawi and Osama Bin Laden. Communication is conducted over the phone registered in the UK, Italy and the United States, said the RTRS.

This information comes on the heels of another Ceric revelation, which many may not have seen because I added it to the bottom of an earlier blog as an “update.” So I’ll reprint it here:

******UPDATE******

It seems that just this past December another witness — a protected witness in the Mladic trial — testified that the marketplace bombing, specifically in February 1994, was not only perpetrated by the Muslim side, but ordered by President Izetbegovic himself. The item below is from Balkan Insight, Dec. 16, 2015, and notice the word choice in the headline “Mladic Witness Claims,” as opposed to the more commonly used (when reporting from judicial settings) “testifies.” Notice also the integral role played by a certain West-beloved cleric named Ceric. And for the first time, we have names offered up of the actual men behind the attack: Mladic Witness Claims Bosniaks Staged Market Attack

Protected witness GRM-116, who testified in Mladic’s defence at the Hague Tribunal on Tuesday, claimed that the attack on the market that killed 66 civilians in February 1994 was approved by the then Bosnian president Alija Izetbegovic.

The witness said that as a member of the Biseri special security unit from 1992 to 1994, he worked on security at the Bosnian presidency building.

He said that during that time he could hear what Izetbegovic and others said during meetings.

According to the witness, Izetbegovic’s main goal was to ensure Western intervention to help the Bosniaks “by creating mass suffering in Sarajevo and Srebrenica”.

He said that Izetbegovic was heavily influenced by Islamic community leader Mustafa Ceric. According to the witness, Ceric convinced Izetbegovic that “losses must be suffered”.

Speaking about the attack on the Markale market, GRM-116 testified that was “Ceric’s idea, which was carried out by generals Sefer Halilovic and Mustafa Hajrulahovic, alias ‘the Italian’”.

“I was there when Alija [Izetbegovic] approved this,” he said.

At the next meeting, the witness said that Halilovic reported the first attempt was a failure because the mortar hit the roof of the market.

“Alija told them to try again. They went and soon we heard what happened with Markale,” he said.

Izetbegovic, who died in 2003, said after the attack that it was a “black and terrible day for the people of Bosnia and Herzegovina”.

As commander of the Bosnian Serb Army, Ratko Mladic is charged with terrorising the population of Sarajevo during wartime with a campaign of shelling and sniping.

According to the charges, the mortar which killed 66 citizens at the Markale market on February 5, 1994 was fired from Bosnian Serb positions. […]

******UPDATE******

Not really an update, but since we’re on Austria, I wanted to add this other Austria/Balkans item, which you don’t exactly hear every day:

“I believe that admitting Kosovo to international organizations at this point would create more problems than it would solve.”

– Austrian presidential candidate Norbert Hofe, from the far-right Freedom Party FPO, to Tanjug, May 20th.

How did I ever live without Sputnik News before? Anyway, we know the end goals of the late “moderate” Kosovo president Ibrahim Rugova were no different from those of the violent radicals we backed in the KLA, but just to humor the rest of the world and pretend there was a big difference, let’s now also feign shock at the following. He may be Rugova’s son, but he’s still Albanian:

Busted: Son of Former Kosovo President Sold Illegal Schengen Visas (Sputnik News, AFP, May 20, 2016)

An EU prosecutor in Kosovo filed charges against 20 people, including the son of Ibrahim Rugova, former president of Kosovo from 2002-2006, for allegedly selling illegal Schengen visas between 2011 and 2014 for thousands of euros.

The case was opened back in February 2014, when police detained ten men, including Ukë Rugova, the deputy of the Kosovo Parliament and son of the ex-president of Kosovo. He was arrested after a search of his house exposed a few hundred photocopies of passports, visa forms, domestic passport copies, photographs and other documents.

Rugova was sent to a preliminary detention center for several months and was then kept under house arrest.

According to the police inspectors, customers were paying from 2,700 to up to 3,500 euros for a Schengen visa, although the standard price for a visa is around 60 euros.

The visa package consisted of false documents to be submitted and even had the approval of the Italian Embassy, where the criminals had their own people, including, as reported by the newspaper, one of the former ambassadors.

In addition, Rugova and his team are suspected of having links to organized crime and the trafficking of illegal migrants.

The kid is just trying to fit in.

In addition to the Huffington Post letter, I wrote a letter to an old acquaintance after the recent Jerusalem Post article ran (re Pope Francis stalling Cardinal Stepinac’s sainthood). It follows below.

Dear Dimitri,

In 2010, after my Jerusalem Post article about WWII Croatia, you sent me a 23-page paper on Cardinal Stepinac by a Croatian Jewish woman [Ester Gitman]. While you never heard back from me, I did read the entire pro-Stepinac work. Which was written by someone who was understandably eternally grateful to Stepinac for what he did for some Croatian Jews to help them survive WWII.

The reason you never heard back from me is that I started an email to you, but it kept growing and growing, until it became a monstrosity that required a lot of time and attention. I promised myself I’d get back to it as soon as I could make the time. Well, I never found the time, and only kept adding to it over the years. The email still sits in my “drafts” folder.

To remind you, in your email you wrote the words, “I think you’ve been deceived.” Leaving aside the little credit this gives me — someone whose writings you respected as they were in line with your perspective on all the usual issues — you meant, presumably, deceived by the Serbian Orthodox.

That would be the side whose history has been suppressed for 70+ years, while their slaughterers got to write the history of the region for the ever gullible West, and today enjoy mainstream acceptance including EU membership, while their demonized eternal victims, the Serbs, still await accession. (Though you and I, as conservatives and Euroskeptics, know that’s a blessing in disguise.)

The reason I’m writing you — briefly for now — is that while the unfinished 2010 email still awaits my attention, I thought the J-Post article below by a Croatian journalist would be a good start for you as a compass. Perhaps after reading it you might at least begin to reevaluate who really has been deceived here: Me, or — like the rest of the world — you.

Regardless, I hope you’re thriving in life. Certainly more than some almost-been who’s allowed her life to be ruined for noticing the greatest collective injustice in the history of the world. Which somehow still remains invisible to most.

Yours,
Julia

Just wanted to share an email I sent last week to editors at Huffington Post (Danielle Crittenden, Devon Murphy, Stuart Whatley, Angelina Chapin, and Arianna Huffington):

Dear Danielle, Devon, Stuart, Angelina and Arianna,

In late 2012, you pulled an article of mine that subsequently appeared in Connecticut Jewish Ledger. It was about Croatian Catholic Archbishop Alojsije (Aloysius) Stepinac, who presided over the little-known WWII genocide of the Christian Orthodox. Your co-religionsists, Arianna, if I’m not mistaken.

As you can see from Tuesday’s Jerusalem Post, the pope has taken the unprecedented step of halting the outrageous yet little debated canonization of the very same Stepinac. Francis wouldn’t do this lightly. Clearly, he has been convinced that Stepinac’s record requires further review. My hastily nixed article objected to Canadian former immigration minister Jason Kenney proudly telling Croatian audiences (viewable on video) that he keeps a photo of Stepinac on his desk. Meanwhile, the constituency that he thereby endears himself to suffers from a fascist nostalgia that has become increasingly difficult to ignore in the three years since Croatia entered the EU.

While I’d become accustomed to the appalling treatment of contributors at HuffPo (editors whose communication style — present company excluded — ranged from non-existent, to dismissive, to irritable), I was still taken aback when not one of you even told your contributor (me) what the “inaccuracies” and “potentially libelous” parts of my article were. (Those were the words used in Danielle Crittenden’s brief email, by way of an “explanation.”) Even after I inquired. Instead, my login simply stopped working, though I tried to resist the logical conclusion that it was related.

While I regretted using the phrase “oversaw genocide” when I meant “presided over genocide,” I didn’t know what else could be considered “factually inaccurate,” and worthy of erasure rather than a one-word fix. Hence, your reticence led me to believe that your Canadian site (where the piece was published) was perhaps ‘gotten to’ by Kenney’s people. And that HuffPo caved. No questions asked. Not that any North Americans would know what questions to ask in the first place, given that the subject sits atop 75 years of buried history. Interestingly, when the article appeared on a U.S. newspaper’s website, no one was “gotten to” about any “inaccuracies” or “libel.” (Did you guys even check the purported inaccuracies against my previous, related article which HuffPo did not unpublish?)

I wasn’t the only one who suspected that Canadian ‘free speech,’ such as it is, had been compromised by the government there. A left-leaning blogger wrote at the time:

Huffington Post deep-sixes Kenney criticism, By Dr.Dawg on November 14, 2012

… An article about Minister of Immigration Jason Kenney’s University of Haifa doctorate by conservative commentator Julia Gorin has mysteriously disappeared from the pages of the Huffington Post without explanation….here’s what appears at HuffPo now…

Does part of [Kenney’s] image-making include political pressure to vapourize articles that are unkind to him? Is this self-censorship by HuffPo (if that’s what it was) related to other incidents recently reported of direct and indirect political pressure on our so-called free press? The Huffington Post editors owe us an explanation. And so might the Harper government.

Arianna, have you done anything since speaking out in 1999, the year of our history-obliterating war, to raise awareness of the evil that the high-minded Western powers have continued to visit upon your co-religionists in the ever expendable Balkans? Those ‘great’ powers that decided that violent jihadists, unrepentant fascists, and mobsters are preferable to Christian Slavs, and treat them accordingly? Understandably, the pull of celebrity, inclusion, and political correctness is more tempting than righting a historical wrong, but your ever-rising star precisely puts you in a position to influence people in power. At the very least, HuffPo could refrain from obstructing a lone blogger who has ruined her life trying to get the truth out.

Forgive the presumptuousness of my tone, but life’s been tough and HuffPo didn’t make it any easier, even when (admittedly) Arianna tried. I’ll close with an excerpt from Tuesday’s JPost article:

[Francis] touched the heart of Croatian nationalism when he suspended the canonization process of the Zagreb Archbishop, Cardinal Aloysius Stepinac. In response, numerous Croatian Catholics have written him off…What made him do it?

…Namely, in 1938, Pope Pius XI planned to publish an encyclical criticizing Nazi racial theories. He appointed the American Jesuit John LaFarge to prepare the text, and advised him to visit and consult the young Archbishop of Zagreb. Stepinac had drawn attention to himself by helping Jews….

The encyclical was…never promulgated because Pius XI died three days before it was to be published, and his successor, the controversial Pope Pius XII, held it back and locked it away. In his memoirs, LaFarge describes Stepinac as someone who clearly understood the dangers of nacism and racism. How is it then possible that only three years later, when the Croatian puppet state, the Independent State of Croatia (NDH) was founded and the Ustasha leader was installed by Hitler and Mussolini, the same Stepinac embraced this fascist construction which was not only clearly founded on a racist interpretation of the Croatian nation, but also sought to promote racial laws which were instrumental for the genocide against Serbs, Jews, Roma and others?

…Stepinac spoke with Pope Pius XII on various occasions asking – begging – him to recognize and support the NDH…Although Stepinac knew about Jasenovac and all the other death camps, he advocated for the recognition and support of the NDH…

Those who claim that Pope Francis has succumbed to provocations from the Orthodox need to be reminded that Pope Francis has also decided to stop the beatification process of Pius XII…There is no doubt that Stepinac tried to help Jews, at least those who were in Zagreb, during the Second World War. But what continues to be controversial are his words. He never clearly condemned the race laws. In his letters to the Ustasha leaders he merely asks that Jews be treated “humanely” in the camps. Yad Vashem has twice denied petitions to give Stepinac the title “Righteous Among the Nations.” And they are right in doing so.

However, when analyzing Stepinac’s attitude toward Serbs and the Serbian Orthodox Church his position becomes very difficult: Stepinac did not like Serbs or Orthodoxy. In his diary he wrote that “…Orthodoxy is Europe’s greatest curse, almost greater than Protestantism…”

Stepinac serves as a national and political saint, strengthening “Croatianness” and in the struggle against the communist regime – which ceased to exist a long time ago. However, according to Pope Francis, when someone is canonized a role model of the Christian life is created which gives direction to the politics of the Church; saints are guides who show us the right way.

I am aware that there are those who will consider me a national traitor for saying this, but I believe that the beatification process and the sanctification of Aloysius Stepinac are a great and unnecessary burden for the Church. It is a process which should never even have started….

The author mentions that Francis has established a Vatican-Serbian-Croatian commission to discuss the Stepinac case and analyze historical documents, which will also shed light on Pius XII. This will be a historic opportunity for journalism. Though I expect few among its ranks will seize it.

Your excommunicated contributor,
Julia Gorin

Actually, when does she look into his eyes? Search for “Google Images Hillary Putin,” and these are among the first five photos to show up. One can’t help but notice that, while Putin looks Hillary directly in the eye, she avoids his.

Why can’t she look him in the eye, or at least hold her gaze more than momentarily? Could it be:

a) She knows he’s the real thing and she isn’t;

b) She knows he knows that she’s nothing;

c) She’s planning to attack his country;

d) All of the above.

In contrast, real leaders look each other in the eye:

George W. Bush had famously said that he looked into Putin’s eyes and saw a soul there. Perhaps this is what Hillary fears. Seeing something she doesn’t recognize.
