An under reported gross gender bias attempt to boost a presidential candidate's numbers in New Hampshire voting.

The Hill, here. If any other Mainstream Media outlet reported the story it has not been given the attention the Madeline Albright statement received. Yet it is bigger. And coarse. Gender bias is politically incorrect; all times; all ways.

It should have been front page, many outlets, and was not. Surprisingly the Albright and Steinem statements arguably were not under reported. One report correctly saw both Albright's and Steinem's commentary as counterproductive in advancing gender breakthrough. Perhaps that is the distinction between the Senatorial bus tour and the loud mouths. One arguably helped push gender as an issue (the bus tour The Hill reports, although insufficient to push progressivism to second place in New Hampshire); the other, not really as under the radar.

Playing the gender card is wrong, whether it is Rush being coarse; or a pack of female senators drum beating.

I'd rather follow the money.

Bless Elizabeth Warren for her current progressive integrity and unwillingness to bend to gender pressure as reported by The Hill.

HuffPo on point. It mentions Bill Clinton. Which reinforces, I'd rather follow the money

WaPo:

"We can tell our story of how we climbed the ladder, and a lot of you young women think it's done. It's not done," opined Madeline Albright, campaigning for Hillary in New Hampshire. "There's a special place in hell for women who don't help each other." Madeleine (Hillary, Bernie: first names, please) suffered great discrimination as a woman, at least as she tells it, and things remain awful.

Too bad that as Bill Clinton's United Nations Ambassador and then Secretary of State (Hillary was the third woman to hold the post), Madeleine did not confront Arab countries on their treatment of women. These same nations would later fund Bill and Hillary Clinton and the Clinton Foundation. Why rock the boat? Or the camel?

As for Madeleine, she was born in 1937 in Prague, Czechoslovakia to parents who, after fleeing Europe in 1941, then decided to convert from Judaism to Catholicism. They never told her about it until adulthood, the story goes, and she apparently never told others. Perhaps she thought being a Jew and a woman was too much to bear. Albright studied at Columbia University in the 1960s; by 1976 she was in the West Wing of the White House as the National Security Council's liaison with Congress. I guess if she were not a victim of gender bias, she would have advanced sooner.

Albright became involved with what Donald Trump would call "losers." At Columbia, she had been mentored by Zbigniew Brzezinski, who would later, as President Jimmy Carter's national security adviser, urge Carter to replace the Iran's pro-Western reformist Shah with the Islamist Ayatollah. This move ushered in the Islamist revolution.

Reagan's "holy warriors" in Afghanistan (a.k.a. jihadists today, same agenda, etc.) were first ginned up against the Soviet incursion, by Zbigniew Brzezinski and with Clinton having boasted on the campaign trail of her ties to Henry Kissinger; the Albright-Clinton gender finger pointing alliance has very much to it to recommend Bernie Sanders, or Donald Trump even, since neither is so grossly tainted as to have been mentored by a clear devil.

UPDATE: Did I say, follow the money? The Atlantic:

In September, Bloomberg reported that the bidding for Kosovo's state-owned post and telecoms company "...has attracted interest from European and Turkish phone operators, as well as from an investment company headed by former U.S. Secretary of State Madeleine Albright, who was a major backer of Kosovo in its war against Serbia."

FURTHER UPDATE: As to ZB during Carter times first pushing the jihadi agenda to bother the Russians; this item; this websearch returning the item as first on the return list.

FURTHER: Given updating including some quoting; a reemphasis is proper; the item in The Hill was not excerpted since by giving it, in context, at the outset, it was presumed intelligent readers would read it, especially since it was not excerpted. Excerpting that item would have implied there was a single gist to it; and instead the entire item is worth reading. It is both terse and well structured.

FURTHER: Good reading: 13 female Dem Senators onboard the Clinton bandwagon out of 14 being a priori insubsantial (in large measure) by the stature of the 1 in 14 not onboard; here and here.
