Hillary win?

with 2 comments

Hillary won six of  six coin tosses  to be declared the Iowa caucus winner by  a whopping  .02%.   Has she been  this lucky  since making a killing in the cattle futures market?   Will we see the rise of  truth flippers?   The odds of this good luck are 1 in 64,  which unsurprisingly has led  to claims  of fraud and the  alienation  of Bernie’s supporters.   Even the Des Moines Register is  calling for  an audit.,  and Mark Steyn agrees that the stench  isn’t from  ethanol.

The Clinton camp was so afraid she  wouldn’t win  that she came out and gave a sort of  victory speech,  and hurriedly  moved on  to New Hampshire.   Jonah Goldberg describes that the way of counting determines who  is declared  a winner.   Is it a coincidence that the Iowa Democratic leader who refuses to release the raw vote totals has a license plate reading  “HRC 2016”?   Is it also a coincidence that in one precinct a delegate  was shifted  from Bernie to Hillary?

UPDATE:  More  strange things  in Iowa…

UPDATE:  And  still more

Ghost fares…

leave a comment »

As Japan nears the fifth anniversary of the earthquake and tsunami that struck coastal towns in the northeast,  taxi drivers in the area are reporting  ghost passengers,  fares who appear to be real,  and even speak,  then vanish.   Others are also reporting some rather ghastly spectral sights,  which isn’t surprising with a death toll of more than 15,000 and over 2,000 still reported as missing.
