The presidential campaign of Hillary Clinton was doomed from the very start of 2016. The universe turned against Hillary, literally.

In late December 2015, my Korean lady friend had expressed disappointment that her favorite TV show, The Good Wife, was on hiatus for the holidays. On Thursday, December 31, 2015, I received my daily newspaper, which includes the A&E Source section, featuring the TV schedule for the next week. I checked the Sunday listing and found new episodes of Madam Secretary and The Good Wife scheduled for 7 and 8 p.m. That evening I informed my friend of the good news.

On Sunday, January 3, 2016, I discovered from spot announcements during a football game that episodes of Undercover Boss and Limitless filled the 7 to 9 p.m. spots on CBS. I rechecked A&E Source and found those two shows listed where I had previously seen Madam Secretary and The Good Wife. The universe had changed; a new year brought a new reality.

The seeming “error” in TV programming was an omen for Hillary Clinton. Madam Secretary and The Good Wife were considered by many to be Hollywood’s rosy variations on the life and career of Hillary Clinton as Secretary of State and the long-suffering wife of a philandering politician. Indeed, while recovering from pneumonia during her presidential campaign, Hillary said she was catching up on back episodes of both programs.

Since the pseudo-Hillary episodes were replaced by Undercover Boss and Limitless, Hillary was apparently “dropped” from her “schedule” of success and replaced by Donald Trump, the ultimate TV Boss who kept his tax returns Undercover and demonstrated a Limitless capacity to shock and offend his opponents.

And the Apprentice was a ruse. Smart businessman, despite numerous bankruptcies and failed casinos, et al. All a fake respresentation. What's your point?

This thread may be less about politics and more about the realization that we are living in a Multiverse in which alternative realities are created on a regular basis. There may well be a parallel universe in which Hillary Clinton was elected President. If we could create a gateway between this universe and that one, all the people who hate living in Trump World could migrate to Hillary World and vice versa.

It could be said that everything and everyone was conspiring against Hillary, but don't expect any Right Winger to agree.

No, I totally agree with you on this one.

Only thing is, Fat Lady herself was in cohoots with the universe on all these as well...or else she tried her best to be. Most worthy of blame in this entire uniniverse?

Madamn Secy.

I certainly didn't vote for her. And, in making that decision, several items on that list came into play. But, for me, the key to me not voting for her was the one item not on it: wife of a two-term president.

I certainly wont argue that one bit. Matter of fact, my own list on why not to vote for her is almost infinite.

A gateway is not so hard if you don't get ripped apart on the threshold at the vision of the other world.

The problem is that we have chosen at some time to be a part of a humanity and co-create in a schoolroom so half the humanity would have to detach itself from the other and most people wouldn't know what they wanted to do be it continue in the present struggle or time travel back to 2000 if the opportunity posed itself on the mass level some would live where previously they had died and people would die who previously lived with other complications, like retaining any memory of where you'd been or establishing your position.

So there's a long line of rationalizations for Hillary's failure to win the presidency, and when interpreted as arguments they are all pretty delusional. But this one is especially bizarre.

Is it really easier to believe this --namely that there's a metaphysical relationship between TV shows getting their times moved and Hillary Clinton losing the presidency-- than that Hillary simply ignored and offended core, critical demographics (chiefly union workers and Millennials) and lost her election as a result? Or are terrestrial considerations simply too banal? Because we can fix these terrestrial considerations moving forward, it just requires people within the Democratic party to reform and give up some power. What you're describing is a defeatist absurdity.

Perhaps I should have made it clearer in my thread. Not only were the TV shows moved but the actual print on the newspaper page changed.

NBC also decided not to air an episode of SVU which featured sexual allegations against a businessman turned political candidate.

I do not do conspiracy theories. The universe was not against Hillary Clinton. The main responsibility is her's. Period.

I found out she doesn't have a very strong astrological chart to win a US Presidential election, so you might say the Universe was against Hillary Clinton.

Predicting US Presidential elections

Mitch Landrieu has 16-2, the same as Ivanka and Trump 9-4, Tulsi Gabbard 11-6 even with Trump; Hillary Clinton, 9-11, Sanders 14-7.

Looks like we really screwed up, lets get it right this time and pick the guy at the top.
