A few weeks ago, Hillary Clinton announced that she was ready to come “out of the woods.” Now, she's back in the spotlight for good, sporting a hefty leather jacket no less, after losing to Donald Trump in the 2016 election.

Speaking at a diversity conference in San Francisco, Clinton began her speech with a joke about the seemingly heartbreaking loss:

"I am thrilled to be out of the woods and in the company of so many inspiring women...And there’s no place I’d rather be than here with you — other than the White House.

Obviously the outcome of the election wasn't the one I hoped for, worked for, but I will never stop speaking out for common sense benefits that will allow moms and dads to stay on the job."

Unlike her last public appearance, where she seemed to avoid any kind of political talk, Clinton came out swinging at the Trump administration. She even blasted Sean Spicer for his heated exchange with reporter April Ryan:

“April Ryan, a respected journalist with unrivaled integrity, was doing her job just this afternoon in the White House press room when she was patronized and cut off trying to ask a question.”

Clinton slammed many of the Trump administration's moves so far, including the GOP's health care bill that has been championed by the president himself.

“Really? Take away maternity care? Who do these people talk to?”

The former presidential candidate also praised those who stood up and spoke out against Republicans at town halls across the country:

“People who had never been active in politics told their stories at town hall meetings. They were people who had something to say and were determined to be heard.”

Her big message to the crowd? “Resist, insist, persist, enlist.”

Clinton urged the crowd to stand up and fight for their rights in the face of the Trump presidency and push for diversity in the male-dominated tech companies of San Francisco.

Ted Davis(64 likes)Here is the REAL story people should be talking about because the media refuses to. The article, in January 2013, detailed how the Russian atomic energy agency, Rosatom, had taken over a Canadian company with uranium-mining stakes stretching from Central Asia to the American West. The deal made Rosatom one of the world’s largest uranium producers and brought Mr. Putin closer to his goal of controlling much of the global uranium supply chain. But the untold story behind that story is one that involves not just the Russian president, but also a former American president and a woman who would like to be the next one. At the heart of the tale are several men, leaders of the Canadian mining industry, who have been major donors to the charitable endeavors of former President Bill Clinton and his family. Members of that group built, financed and eventually sold off to the Russians a company that would become known as Uranium One. Beyond mines in Kazakhstan that are among the most lucrative in the world, the sale gave the Russians control of one-fifth of all uranium production capacity in the United States. Among the agencies that eventually signed off was the State Department, then headed by Mr. Clinton’s wife, Hillary Rodham Clinton. As the Russians gradually assumed control of Uranium One in three separate transactions from 2009 to 2013, Canadian records show, a flow of cash made its way to the Clinton Foundation. Uranium One’s chairman used his family foundation to make four donations totaling $2.35 million. Those contributions were not publicly disclosed by the Clintons, despite an agreement Mrs. Clinton had struck with the Obama White House to publicly identify all donors. Other people with ties to the company made donations as well. And shortly after the Russians announced their intention to acquire a majority stake in Uranium One, Mr. Clinton received $500,000 for a Moscow speech from a Russian investment bank with links to the Kremlin that was promoting Uranium One stock. The New York Times’s examination of the Uranium One deal is based on dozens of interviews, as well as a review of public records and securities filings in Canada, Russia and the United States. The episode underscores the special ethical challenges presented by the Clinton Foundation, headed by a former president who relied heavily on foreign cash to accumulate $250 million in assets even as his wife helped steer American foreign policy as secretary of state, presiding over decisions with the potential to benefit the foundation’s donors. When the Uranium One deal was approved, the geopolitical backdrop was far different from today’s. The Obama administration was seeking to “reset” strained relations with Russia. The deal was strategically important to Mr. Putin, who shortly after the Americans gave their blessing sat down for a staged interview with Rosatom’s chief executive, Sergei Kiriyenko. “Few could have imagined in the past that we would own 20 percent of U.S. reserves,” Mr. Kiriyenko told Mr. Putin.

Carole Hawkins(31 likes)How about instead of resist we just learn to repect each other's right to have a different opinion. Why is the left so hell bent on name calling and telling me I am not a patriot if I disagree with them. What has happened to our country? I did not vote for Barack Obama or Kerry or Clinton, but I did my best to support them while they were in office. Trump IS the president whether you like it or not, so shut up and do your part to make America great again. If you have an idea put it forth if you just want to be devisive it is time to shut up lick your wounds and wait 3 3/4 years for change.
