Do these comments could as threats? Incitement to assassination?

I was googling for the name of a Syfy show I saw an ad for and came across an anti-Hillary video that had these comments:

Person 1:
"where in the hell is a Lee Harvey Oswald when you need one?!?!"
"for her reign of terror to finally be over somebody needs to take one for the team and take this bitch out!"

Person 2:
"you are right david. she is the devil and I hope someone sees she is never around to be elected"

I don't know if comments like this are of interest to the SS or not and I don't really want to make a fuss with them over something they don't think is actually a threat. But I do know that comments like these are friggin' scary. Seriously, who condones murdering somebody?

"Brownback’s support in Legislature weakens after moderates’ big gains"

As an unfortunate Kansan (until I escape) this is a minor relief; 11 seats in the House and 8 in the Senate:

Gov. Sam Brownback saw his support in the Legislature weakened significantly Tuesday when moderates prevailed in dozens of Republican primary races across the state.

“It looks likes the math is pretty clear we’re going to have a ruling moderate-Democratic coalition again,” said Michael Smith, a professor of political science at Emporia State University.

“After four years of the failed experiment, people ran out of patience,” said Roger Elliott, a moderate who won the Republican primary for the open House seat in Wichita’s District 87. He was referring to the income tax cuts Brownback ushered into law in 2012, which economists say have contributed to the state’s budget woes.

Smith credited grassroots groups, such as Women For Kansas, for turning out voters to support moderate candidates throughout the state.

My final Josh Barro tweet post (in regards to Bernie)...

On November 9: "There is no president-elect. The president will be chosen by the Electoral College."

Politico makes me sympathize...

...briefly with Republicans:

Grass-roots conservatives and party leadership are finding a common cause: Limiting Republican primaries to registered Republican voters.

About women and advertising...

...a story from 2013. Not about Hillary but about women which is something I think all of us here in the HRC group care about (even those of us that are male):

Also the Hillary shill Google bans payday loan ads:

Edit: I'm not a big fan of many types of advertising, most of which seem like a legal form of brainwashing.
