As expected, 2015 has come and gone, and 2016 has officially begun. In this year of a yet another hotly contested Presidential election, there will be a lot of political brewhaha that at some point will make us all want to vomit. For some of us, that time has already arrived.
As a conservative independent, I am sick of the liberal media endorsing and promoting a candidate who is morally repulsive and who is currently under a FBI criminal investigation probe for mishandling classified information, lying to Congress, destruction of government property (wiping the server), storing classified material in an unauthorized location and obstruction of justice.
As an anti-establishment citizen, I believe in putting America first. You can’t put America first if you support a candidate who is a career establishment elitist with a shady past full of sex, lies and of course a video tape.
No matter how hard Hillary Clinton tries to run from her husband’s past, the fact remains that as Governor and as President, Bill Clinton was a sexual predator and Mrs. Clinton’s continued defense of her husband is a position she will have to own. His past behavior is pertinent in this election regardless of what the media pundits crow. What citizen wants an accused sexual predator in the White House?
Now call me crazy, but one has to ask themselves, why it is that Bill Cosby is being prosecuted for sexual assault, but the former President is not. Is this not an example of what democrats call “White Privilege?”
With that in mind, women have come forward with allegations against the former President and they should not be demonized based upon whom the allegations are against. It’s obvious to most Americans that the Clinton machine is working feverishly to tamp down the coverage of these allegations by having Chelsea Clinton out front as the surrogate campaigner.
Now according to Hillary Clinton herself, all women who have been raped should be believed unless they have been discredited. But discredited by whom? The accused? I think not.
The Primary: Probably the biggest lie being told and pushed by the liberal media is the fact that Democrats are actually holding a primary election to select their candidate. Truth be told, Democrats have already selected their candidate and there is little doubt among democrat supporters, strategists, and pundits, that the Hillary Clinton will be the nominee for the left. After all, who needs a stinking primary when the elitists have already decided the outcome?
That said, the Democratic Party still has this inconvenient problem called perception and so they have continued their charade by pushing forward with a scripted debate performance simply to go through the motions and make “their” candidate look good. For many of us who’ve actually watched [DVR’d] these kabuki dance theater performances, I found them akin to watching re-run episodes of the “twilight zone,” not to mention that many were held on Saturday nights when most Americans [like me] were watching college football or like tonight the Pittsburgh – Denver playoff game. Talk about inconvenient.
On March 17, 2008, during a speech on foreign policy, Hillary Clinton, [then a U.S. Senator] stated the following:
“I remember landing under sniper fire. There was supposed to be some kind of a greeting ceremony at the airport, but instead we just ran with our heads down to get into the vehicles to get to our base.”
As it turned out, there was no sniper fire and the greeting ceremony went on without incident, as recorded by CBS news. Funny how a politicians memory gets clouded by the actual facts.
State Department Emails and Server: In the most bizarre plot of deception since the Nixon days of Watergate, Americans learned that Hillary Clinton used her own private computer and private email to do her business as the nation’s top diplomat, all because she decided it would be more convenient.
But that’s only part of the story. During her March 10, 2015, press conference regarding this issue, Hillary Clinton stated that there was no classified material on her computer. One could say that what she said wasn’t quite a lie since as it turned out, many of those classified emails have been deleted; however, the best was yet to come as we now know her network server was not cleared for classified material. Minor technicality in the eyes of a political opportunist like Mrs. Clinton.
The political and legal cover that Mrs. Clinton has gotten over this issue can only be attributed to her elitist status. In recent weeks, the State Department determined that over 1300 emails that passed through Mrs. Clinton’s email server contained classified information ranging from confidential to top secret.
Yet, according to the former Secretary, none of those same emails were marked “classified.” However, once again the former Secretary is trying to deceive the American public. Classified material is marked “CONFIDENTIAL, SECRET, and TOP SECRET,” not “classified;” O0ps.
Have I mentioned yet that the coroneted candidate has a major dishonestly perception problem with the American people?
Dishonestly Perception: For most Americans, when someone does not tell the truth, it’s called a lie. In political circles, it’s called a candidate misstatement or is simply explained [blamed] as a misunderstanding by the American people.
The former Secretary of State likes to play the blame game on a regular basis to cover her blatant lies, but the American people are having none of it according to a December 22, 2015, Quinnipiac poll which shows 59% view her as being “not honest and trustworthy.”
Support of Women: Isn’t it funny how the pendulum ultimately swings back to even things out so people get what is coming to them? For the longest time, Hillary Clinton has tried every technique she could from preaching that there is the war on women to feminism, in order to secure the “woman vote.”
Two weeks ago, a rape survivor and former member of the Democratic Party confronted the former Secretary at a rally. Looking more like the wicked Witch of the West, Mrs. Clinton refused to take her question; watch.
Video Tape: For those who have kept up with Mrs. Clinton’s lies regarding the September 11, 2012, terrorist attack in Benghazi, the firsthand accounts by the men who were actually there that fateful night have kept it fresh in the minds of American citizen’s despite the Democratic efforts to silence them.
Immediately after the attack in Benghazi, Hillary Clinton stated that the cause of this attack was an inflammatory video and that the people responsible would be brought to justice.
Furthering Mrs. Clinton’s false narrative and giving her deniability, Susan Rice obediently charged out on the Sunday morning circuit, fostering the White House narrative that the attack was caused by this rogue video, a fact by this point in time that we know Mrs. Clinton knew was false.
Yesterday, I watched the 13 Hours in Benghazi movie. My heart aches for both the families of the fallen warriors and my country, who quite frankly, have been deceived by the very officials elected to represent them. Unfortunately, as is all too often the case, warriors are used as pawns and throwaways by politicians and their self-serving lackeys whose moral compass is askew.
I believe that Mrs. Clinton will have to answer to the American people, assuming that she is not indicted by the Department of Justice come convention time. Either way, she has made her bed and now she’ll have to lay in it.
