Hillary Clinton will be the real, true, first Jewish President, based on her campaign speech today from Roosevelt Island, NY. She wrapped up this last week of campaigning with the gift of a giant bag of chutzpa, warning her audience that “Prosperity can’t be just for CEOs and hedge fund managers. Democracy can’t be just for billionaires and corporations“.
Folks, let’s back up a second. Hillary Clinton spent the years of her tenure at the State Department selling favors for cash donations to her personal foundation. How do we know? Because when her communications were subpoenaed, she destroyed half the evidence. Then there is all the rest; Bill’s speeches, cash, arms sales, mining licenses, sales to Iran, and on and on.
“Prosperity can’t be just for CEOs and hedge fund managers“ says the blue collar hard working woman from Illinois who’s foundation has taken in almost $2 billion, with $260 million in 2013 alone?
“Prosperity and democracy are part of your basic bargain, too.” she said. Are you kidding me? I don’t know how well prosperity and democracy fares under a leader who takes bribes. What do you think happened to the information on Hillary’s server? Do you think hackers were probing that thing from time to time? Do you think maybe it’s possible that the Chinese and/or Putin had drills all over it, going after that data? Do you think that information could be held over Hillary’s head by some foreign entity who fails to buy into her reset? (btw, as an aside, search YouTube for Hillary meeting with Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov to give him that ridiculous Reset button. When he points out to her “You got it wrong” Hillary repeats “I got it wrong” IN A FAKE RUSSIAN ACCENT. Nice. That’s a dingleheaded move, I don’t care who you are.) UPDATE: On further reflection, perhaps Hillary was “mirroring”, a sales technique that works when used properly, not when you suddenly fake the other guy’s accent. Fer Pete’s damn sake.
There is nothing wrong with Bill Clinton getting paid to make speeches. There is something horribly wrong when his wife as Secretary of State makes decisions based on whether a country has paid tribute.
We pause for a palette cleanser. Dennis Hastart, an ex-Republican politician out of office for eight years, is facing prison time for withdrawing $1.7 million of his own money from the bank to pay off a blackmailer and not informing the government of the purpose of his withdrawals. The FBI got ‘im. See photo above. Let THAT sink in.
The size of the Clinton fraud is staggering, but the money involved is only secondary. As a junior senator from New York she was just practicing, introducing a bill that gave a Clinton Foundation donor tax-exempt bonds to build a mall. But as Secretary of State who knows what damage she’s done? What did Putin already know before he invaded Ukraine? Who knows what the Chinese knew before they started building a brand new island 600 miles beyond their natural border? Hillary Clinton turned the State Department into a swap-meet, destroying our credibility as either a negotiating partner or resolute foe, and all right under the nose of the President.
In 1929, Secretary of the Interior Albert Bacon Fall went to prison for accepting a $1.3 million dollar bribe in today’s money. He gave government mining leases away without competitive bids. It was called the biggest scandal in American history up to that time and was named Teapot Dome. Thems were the good old days.
I think the thing I find most amazing about this whole contrived show is that so many people are playing along; the media continue to allow her to pursue her campaign, with the only voices of accountability coming from talk radio. Hillary is a fraud on every level; her story, her priorities, her honesty, her abilities. She doesn’t defend women’s anything. She’s a professional candidate, like Barack. She’s achieved nothing but desires everything; all that it takes is a good story about her feelings. Next she’ll be telling you stories about her mother. She’s done nothing but maneuver her life closer and closer to the Presidency, ruining things as she’s touched them.
She asks “Wouldn’t it be great to have a woman in the White House?” If I was Caitlyn Jenner I’d be insulted. If Hillary espoused rational economic policies, or rejected progressive socialism, or showed the slightest aptitude in foreign affairs there would be something to hang your hat on, but there’s nothing going on here except ambition.
And so 2007 repeats itself, with another incompetent and this time dishonest Democratic candidate who will tell us their dreams and hopes, and the Chris Matthews’s will kvell at the amazingness of being THIS CLOSE TO MAKING HISTORY.
Meanwhile ISIS molts like a fungus becoming more deadly every day, China extends it’s territory to the coasts of Thailand, Malaysia and the Philippines, Vladimir Putin chews away at Eastern Europe, and our allies sit in wonderment at the idiocracy that has overtaken us.
