First of all, I need to put on the record that I don’t like Hillary. I never have and never will. I’m not certain that she bumped off Vince Foster, but I’m also not certain that she didn’t. I am certain that right after Foster’s death, her chief of staff and others hauled boxes of documents out of Foster’s office up to Bill and Hillary’s living quarters in the White House. I also know for a fact that three independent handwriting experts concluded that Foster’s suicide note was a forgery!
The reason I don’t like her is not the Foster incident. Nor is it the time back in 1978 when she invested $6,300 in the futures market and ten months later had made $100,000. Listening to Bill explain her good luck did make me froth at the mouth a little. I guess what really caused me to dislike her was the way she treated the military when she was the First Lady. She was abusive to people in uniform and treated them like dirt.
Now she’s running for President? Incredible. I think, I hope, that her arrogance and miscalculations i.e., that she is powerful enough that she is above the law and can get away with anything, including lying, will catch up with her. If it doesn’t and she becomes President, I suspect that our country will still survive, but not in my lifetime.
I find the similarities between Nixon’s Watergate and Hillary’s server problems strangely compelling. Eighteen minutes of the Watergate tapes were “accidentally” erased. Many of Hillary’s emails have now disappeared. She insists on being in control. That’s why she used a private server in the first place. Then she could decide what she would share and what she would not. You know what is really scary? That the Secretary of State of the United States never sent or received any classified documents! How can that be? How stupid does she think the American public is? Now, after saying she never sent or received any classified documents, she has changed the wording to say she has never sent or received any documents marked classified. What she is ignoring is that certain matters involving national security are classified even if she or one of her cronies didn’t mark it appropriately.
And we are talking Top Secret documents. There are three basic levels of classified documents, Confidential, Secret, and Top Secret. Many of the documents the Secretary of State deals with on a daily basis are Top Secret. You want proof? I don’t have to give you proof. We are living in the Trump Era. That means that if I say something in a forceful and excited way, people should believe me. But getting back to Hillary, every Secretary of State deals with Top Secrets documents on a routine basis.
This brings me around to General Petraeus. If he were as brazen as Bill and Hillary Clinton, he would have beaten any accusations against him. The documents he passed on to his girlfriend were classified Confidential. And he was indicted and convicted for doing so. It won’t be that easy to get Hillary. Petraeus is a man whose word is his bond. He may have done something stupid, but when confronted, he told the truth. Hillary has learned well from Bill and will lie, lie, lie.
In recent surveys, more people than not believe Hillary is untrustworthy, i.e., she lies. But many of the Democrats who feel that way also say they would vote for her. That my friends is the definition of a “Red Dog Democrat.” If the Democratic party nominated a red dog for election, these people would vote for it.
When Hillary was asked if she wiped her server clean before turning it over to the FBI, she responded, “like with a cloth or something?” Wow. I don’t think she is Presidential material. But then it may depend on how you define “is.”
