Look: Man Spotted Directly Behind Hillary At Rally Wearing Shirt She’ll HATE

Western Journalism reported recently about a hapless college student referred to on social media as #stickerboy, who was able to get into a Hillary Clinton rally last month in Iowa. ‘Stickerboy’ placed two stickers over his face and danced around gleefully, earning temporary fame nonetheless.

As it turns out, at least two men attended another Clinton event, also not necessarily to support the candidate. But it’s not stickers on their faces earning them national attention; it’s the shirts their wearing–and specifically what’s written on them.

According to The Federalist, the men were wearing shirts that read “Settle for Hillary.”

They were also immediately noticed on social media. Jeff Bechdel, chairman of America Rising (a Republican PAC), tweeted: “People behind @HillaryClinton wearing “Settle For Hillary” shirts at her event in Hudson, NH… ouch. #nhpolitics.”

Another person tweeted: “EPIC Troll at Hillary town hall. Still from CNN Clip #SettleForHillary #feelthebern.”

The message coincides with what others are saying about the candidate choices Democrats have.

Ed Krayewski may have said it best when he blogged: “Hillary Clinton is as close to a pre-selected candidate as this cycle’ll see.” He mentioned a long list of candidates who could have run but didn’t, like  Bill Bradley, Al Gore, Joseph Biden, Harry Reid, Jim Webb, Andrew Cuomo, and Jerry Brown.

Even Democratic presidential candidates noticed early on there were few choices for the Democratic nominee. Former Maryland Gov. Martin O’Malley said back in the summer of 2015: “I think it’s a big mistake for us as a party to circle the wagons around the inevitable front-runner.”

Complicating matters, an active investigation of Clinton is underway by the FBI for her handling of classified information. Depending on the outcome of the FBI investigation, settling for Hillary Clinton might not even be an option.

Watch: Trump Announces Stunning Plan For N Korea- Liberals’ Jaws Drop Instantly

Donald Trump said during an interview on Wednesday that the best way to deal with an increasingly belligerent North Korea is to make its leader “disappear.”

As reported by Western Journalism, Director of National Intelligence James Clapper testified before Senate Armed Services Committee on Tuesday that the rogue nation has restarted a plutonium reactor and could begin to recover weapons grade nuclear material within weeks.

Pyongyang continues to produce fissile material and develop a submarine-launched ballistic missile,” Clapper said. “It is also committed to developing a long-range nuclear-armed missile that’s capable of posing a direct threat to the United States, although the system has not been flight tested.”

North Korea launched a satellite on Sunday, which defense experts believe was a front for its continued development of intercontinental ballistic missiles. The satellite reportedly flew right over the Super Bowl in Santa Clara, Calif.

In light of Clapper’s testimony, CBS Morning’s Nora O’Donnell asked Trump what he would do to deal with North Korea.

“I would get China to make that guy disappear in one form or another very quickly,” Trump said referring to the country’s 33-year-old leader Kim Jong Un. (See minute 6:44 below)

The candidate did not specify whether he meant assassinating the dictator, but when further questioned, he shrugged his shoulders and replied, “Well, I’ve heard of worse things, frankly.”

“I mean, this guy’s a bad dude, and don’t underestimate him,” Trump said. “Any young guy who can take over from his father with all those generals and everybody else that probably want the position — this is not somebody to be underestimated.”

The candidate emphasized that he would make China deal with him. “China has control — absolute control — over North Korea. They don’t say it, but they do,” he said. “And they should make that problem disappear. China is sucking us dry. They’re taking our money. They’re taking our jobs. They’re doing so much. We have rebuilt China with what they’ve taken out.”

Trump noted that the U.S. trade imbalance with China is a major point of leverage that he would use to force the Chinese to act.

The topic of discussion then turned to the Middle East, and the candidate emphasized that dealing with ISIS would be a priority, but also made clear he believes the United States has made several missteps that have destabilized the region, including removing Iraq’s Saddam Hussein and Libya’s Muammar Gaddafi. Trump said that taking out Syria’s Bashar al-Assad, which is the Obama administration’s policy, would likely be a continuation of what he believes to be past failures.

Watch: Undercover Journalists Reveal Jaw-Dropping Truth About US Elections

The 2016 United States presidential primary started with last week’s caucuses in Iowa, and has continued this week in New Hampshire–but not without controversy.

As Western Journalism reported, much controversy exists over the caucus results from Iowa. And now, more controversy is emerging from the Granite State.

Undercover journalists from Project Veritas Action, armed with hidden video cameras, captured state election officials, campaign officials, and campaign workers in what one could say borders on voter fraud.

Project Veritas’ investigators posed as would-be voters. One of them presented herself at a polling station, asking questions of Emily Croots, an election official in Durham, N.H.

“Okay, and how long do I have to live in New Hampshire before I can vote today?”asked the investigator.

Croots responded, “Not long. I don’t know. There’s not really a set time.”

The investigator asked a follow-up question: “Okay, and how long do I have to stay in New Hampshire to vote today?”

“Um, there’s no requirement,” Croots replied.

The Project Veritas investigation continued, with the investigator saying she didn’t have any identification and was told all she had to do was fill out and sign a verification form giving a name and an address.

In another instance, after telling the Project Veritas undercover journalist she needed to have been in the state for 48 hours prior to voting, Lacy Bang, a poll worker from Portsmouth, N.H., told her she could use her Massachusetts driver’s license. “If you’re here today, you vote, you can be gone,” Bang said.

In another revealing conversation, Donna Waterman (a Bernie Sanders campaign staffer) confessed that even out-of-state campaign workers vote in the New Hampshire primary. “All of our paid canvassers have done it, It’s very, very, easy.” Continuing on, Waterman added: “I don’t know the legality of it.  Perhaps it’s voter fraud.”

James O’Keefe, head of Project Veritas Action, then confronted a few of the individuals seen in the video; but mum was the reaction he received, even being told to leave at one point.

It appears, from the different answers to the residency questions, that no one interviewed really seemed to know how long one had to have been a resident of New Hampshire in order to vote; and no one seemed to know how long one had to stay in the state for their vote to have been valid.  Likewise, no one appeared to be concerned with issues of voter identification.

O’Keefe concluded that the laws in New Hampshire concerning voter identification, registration, and validation need more attention from the state’s lawmakers.

Wow: NH Results May Cause This Surprise Politician To Enter The Race- It’s Not Who You Think

Bloomberg for President? It could happen. According to many sources, former N.Y. mayor is seriously considering a late entry into the presidential race. The outcome of Tuesday’s New Hampshire primary, in which Trump and Sanders walked away winners, may be the best case scenario for Bloomberg were he to enter the race.

Experts say that he already has a staff of political advisers, connections, and funds to launch a viable presidential campaign.

“It’s not like he’s Mike Huckabee. This could be a first-rate campaign. He just starts making a couple of calls, and it’s there. The groundwork is there. The social network is there. Basically, he just has to spend a lot of money.”

In reality, Bloomberg’s entry into the race would present major challenges. First, he must secure that his name is on every state ballot. Texas would be his first target due to time constraints. Texas requires the signatures of 79,939 registered voters before May 9 and the signatures can not come from anyone who votes in the March 1 Super Tuesday primaries. This goal could come at a price tag of $3 million.

Should he decide to run, Bloomberg has stated that he would spend a minimum of $1 billion on his campaign.

In addition to getting his name on the ballots, he would need to hire a campaign chief in each state plus a media team.

Political consultant Ed Rollins said that by Election Day, Bloomberg may have 3,000 people on his campaign payroll.

Former Republican Senator Al D’Amato stated that Bloomberg’s best shot would be against Democrat Bernie Sanders and Republican Donald Trump. “That would be the best scenario for Bloomberg, to grab a big swath of moderate voters in a polarized election,” said D’Amato.

Bloomberg, the CEO of Bloomberg LP, is 73 years old and has a net worth in excess of $40 billion.

Trump Just Nailed Why He And Sanders Won New Hampshire With 1 Perfect Sentence

The American people “are being ripped off,” Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump said Wednesday morning, noting that only he and Democratic presidential candidate Sen. Bernie Sander, D-Vt., highlighted that on the campaign trail.

“We’re being ripped off by everybody. And I guess that’s the thing that Bernie Sanders and myself have in common. We know about the trade. But unfortunately he can’t do anything to fix it, whereas I will. I have the best people in the world. We’re losing hundreds and hundreds of billions of dollars a year. And we will fix it. And we’ll make it good. And we’ll bring our jobs back. Bernie Sanders can’t even think in terms of that,” Trump said on MSNBC’s Morning Joe.

“The only thing he does know, and he’s right about, is that we’re being ripped off; he says that constantly; and I guess he and I are the only two that really say that,” Trump said.

Writing in The Washington Post, Greg Sargent analyzed Trump and Sanders in light of Trump’s comments.

“They are speaking to people’s sense that our economic and political systems are cheating them, that they are being failed because the underlying rules of those systems have themselves been rigged,” he wrote.

Sargent said Trump and Sanders have vastly different solutions to the problem.

“Trump says the elites are cheating ordinary Americans by helping illegals, major corporations, and China, and vows to break this corrupt system over his knee and get it working again, because he’s not one of those elites. This is what Trump really means when he says he “can’t be bought”; Trump is not making a sustained argument for political and campaign finance reform; he’s just saying he’s not a member of the class that is cheating you, and he will come in and bust up that class’s party,” Sargent wrote.

Sanders, Sargent wrote, wants vast reforms to change the system. Sanders believes the culprit behind America’s woes is “an oligarchy that has enriched itself by rigging the economy to effect a massive transfer of wealth upwards and to paralyze our political system from doing anything about it, thus corrupting our political classes,” Sargent wrote.
