We watched in 2008, then again in 2012, the major American news outlets be-clown themselves in their fawning, sycophantic, adoration of Barack Obama. We watched the host of a prime time new show describe getting a tingle up his leg listing to the then Democratic candidate bullshit Americans. We watched as journalists from one of the most reputable and venerated news shows ask the President questions that could only be described as “comically obsequious.” It has been clear for the last 8 years that the 4th estate is in the tank for the Democrat party.
One would think then that a person would become jaded to this bias when it comes to Hillary Clinton and 2016. For the most part, yes. When the Huffington Post publishes a piece following Hillary’s nomination with the headline “Hillary Clinton Looks Downright Angelic In A White Pantsuit At The DNC,” is that in any way shocking. There are many words I could use to describe Hillary Clinton, a precious few of them might even be nice, but none of those words would be angelic. But of course a writer with HuffPo is going to write about Hillary in a way that is nothing short of oleaginous.
Then I came to this article by Ezra Kein of Vox, that was so beyond the pale, that I just couldn’t leave it alone.
This election isn’t just Democrat vs. Republican. It’s normal vs. abnormal.
It goes on to explain that Trump and the GOP is an abnormal, crazy, loudmouth; and by contrast, Hillary is the normal candidate.
Ezra Klein is wrong (what else is new?), there is nothing about this election that is normal. I’ve said enough about Trump, so I’m going to skip him for this post. What I will say is that his abnormally pales comparison to the abnormality of Hillary Clinton and what goes on around her. Especially what goes on around her.
A Democrat Congressman commits tax fraud and lies about his income.
A Democrat Congresswoman commits fraud and steals from a fake charity she created.
A Democrat Congressman commits fraud and steals from his campaign fund.
A Democrat Governor commits fraud and uses state resources to line his pockets.
A Democrat Governor commits fraud and tries to sell a Senate seat for personal gain.
The Democrats may not have invented political corruption, but they sure as hell have mastered it.
If Hillary Clinton’s scandals were limited to pay-to-play, graft, patronage, and other forms of Gombeenism, that would be one thing. But the level of corruption Hillary Clinton has engaged in undermines the security of the United States of America. What we have seen when it comes to Hillary Clinton, from those that support her, is a casual disregard of Banana Republic level corruption. It is bizarre.
The Republicans have tried to make hash out of these types of scandals that emanate from Hillary. It is not that these accusations don’t stick. It is that Hillary supporters just don’t care.
Republicans: Hillary Clinton was derelict in her duty as Secretary of State, allowing the loss of our Embassy in Benghazi, Libya, to enemy forces and the death of a US Ambassador and three other Americans.
Republicans: Hillary Clinton, as Secretary of State, allowed the Russian Government to buy 20% of US Uranium mining rights – a strategic national resource – after making a substantial donation to the Clinton Foundation.
Republicans: Hillary Clinton set up an unauthorized server for her email – deliberately to be outside the reach of FOIA requests – that was unsecured and put classified documents at risk of being stolen, in violation of the Espionage Act.
The FBI investigates Hillary Clinton. Former President Bill Clinton meets with Attorney General Loretta Lynch. The FBI Director, live on national TV, laid out the case for the prosecution and conviction of Hillary Clinton, and ends his press conference with “but we ain’t gonna do shit about it.” And nobody who supports Hillary cares that she could and may have compromised the security of the United States.
Absolutely everybody with a functioning brain KNOWS that the Clinton Foundation was a institution set up to allow businesses and foreign governments to buy influence from the Clintons. It’s just that Clinton supporters JUST DON’T CARE.
Democrats: Sheesh guys *rolls eyes* and…?
The question is, what happens when this apathy towards this level of corruption puts Hillary in the White House?
On some random date in, say, 2018, a headline will appear in the news: Chinese Government makes record $5 Billion donation to the Clinton Foundation.
A week later a headline will appear in the news:President Clinton authorizes sale of Nimitz Class supercarrier to China.
Someday in 2019: Iranian Government makes $500 Million donation to the Clinton Foundation.
A week later: Clinton Administration will not respond to successful test of Iranian Nuclear Weapon.
Will the response by the Democrats still be: And…?
Obama is incompetent in the matters of dealing with world crises because he is bound to an ideology that won’t let him acknowledge who the arsonists are that are responsible for burning the world.
Hillary Clinton will let the arsonists burn the world, if they donate enough to the Clinton Foundation.
If ISIS can donate enough funds, will President Hilary Clinton recognize them as a legitimate political actor with Raqqa as their capital?
This is the abnormality of Hillary Clinton. Trump may be a hothead. But I believe that he sincerely cares about America’s safety as a nation and would not put the security of America above personal gain. He might risk it for ego, but I don’t think he can be bought.
Under Hillary, America’s safety, security, national secrets, are all for sale to the highest bidder.
This may be normal for a Hillary supporter like Ezra Klein, who has excused all of her other previous scandals. It is not normal for me.
