(Fred Weinberg) – Hillary Clinton has been impressing herself on the national consciousness since 1992 and now, after a run as First Lady, Senator from New York and Secretary of State, she wants the big job.
My problem with her is not necessarily her politics. She, like her husband, is whatever gets her through an election so while you think she’s a doctrinaire liberal, the truth is that—like many politicians—she goes to the highest bidder.
But that’s not nearly as big a problem for me as the fact that she’s a liar, a crook and she wants to insult my intelligence by pretending she’s not a liar and a crook.
On September 11, 2012—the 11th anniversary of the 9-11 attack on the World Trade Center—she presided over the deaths of four State Department employees including our Ambassador to Libya and then blamed a youtube video as for what was actually a terrorist plot. She lied through her teeth and when pressed by Congress asked in exasperation, “What difference, at this point, does it make?”
Since then, we have discovered that instead of using the United States government’s extensive secure email system when she was Secretary of State, she used her own server which is like using hotmail for classified information. In fact, hotmail might be more secure since it is owned by Microsoft and, unlike the government, Microsoft actually knows what it is doing.
Later this week, she’s going to finally testify in front of Congress and she is essentially going to ask, “Who are you going to believe? Me or your lying eyes?”
Having very few alternatives, the Democrat Party is going to suspend even their disbelief and believe her for the limited purpose of trying to get her elected President and stay in power—that being more important to either of the parties than actually governing for the benefit of the voters.
So she will testify in front of Trey Gowdy and lie her ass off as if it is no big deal because she’s been getting away with it since Whitewater. If you lie to the FBI, you go to prison. If she lies to a Congressional committee, it’s considered entertainment.
She’ll have the mainstream media to help her minimize the damage with fake polls and people like Charlie Rose, Nora O’Donnell and Gale King pooh-pooing the impact of her lying, President Obama saying that it didn’t hurt national security and the like.
And, like the good citizens of Germany and Japan in 1944, we’re actually supposed to believe that.
The facts are simple.
It was 2011 and Barack Obama was running for re-election.
The citizens (we’re still not Nazi Germany) were restless. They had already “shellacked” him in the 2010 midterms. His narrative was that Osama Bin Laden was dead and General Motors was alive.
A United States Ambassador dead on the 10th anniversary of 9-11 from a terrorist attack overseas simply did NOT fit that narrative.
However amateurish the Obamaites were in actually governing, they understood campaigning and they knew instantly that this had the potential to become Obama’s Watergate. So, they made up a bullcrap story and stuck to it, telling the big lie that Joseph Goebbels helped invent in Nazi Germany. It was an unfortunate result of a video some clown posted on youtube, they told the Sunday morning shows.
And Hillary was stupid enough to buy right in because her ambition to get into the big job overrode any common sense. Plus, she thought she could control the narrative because she thought she controlled the emails from that night due to her private server which she thought she could erase. Turns out, she thought wrong.
So here we are, four years later and she and her peeps are still lying their collective asses off and expecting us to take the insult to our intelligence with our morning coffee.
If we do, we’ve got lots bigger problems than Hillary Clinton as President.
