Hillary Clinton — a woman of
no convictions

Washington Times, by Charles Hurt

Original Article

Posted By:garnet, 8/13/2014 9:46:55 AM

The brassiness, dishonesty and shamelessness as she slides into yet another presidential campaign season is enough to choke that old Arkansas draft mule of a husband she hitched her career to. The scheming calculation of it all would make Lady Macbeth take to the bed for blushing. How on earth did such a crafty street fighter get so completely trounced by such a naive rookie like Barack Obama in 2008? That Mrs. Clinton would up and disavow President Obama’s policy of ceding the entire world to evil forces — a policy she embraced and enforced for four years as his top

I am worried that enough "conservative pundits" will fall for the current propaganda that Hilaria is a tough centrist on foreign policy - far more realistic and responsible than Obama! they say - that it will become the conventional wisdom as we roll into the presidential primaries... no, I´m not worried, I´m convinced they´ll fall for it.

She will say or do anything to get elected just like obama. Once in office she will do as much damage to America as obama or possibly more.

Once again we need help from the left. What do you see in her? What am I missing? What ever it is ,I don´t see it.All I see is someone that should be retired for gross mismanagement and negligence and being a lying Democrat.

I disagree, she´s apparently convinced that she has a divine right to rule over us as compensation for her so-called husband regularly humiliating her, or something like that.

With Mid-east Muslim countries disavowing the Muslim brotherhood, would someone please ask Madam Porkchop, why her connection to the Muslim Brotherhood with Huma Abedin is not a dangerous one? How can they be trusted? What does Huma know? How many in the high level positions are spies for the Brotherhood? We let the leader of ISIS go from Gitmo, dismissing him as JV team but clearly those who made this decision are stupid or treasonous spies. I pick the latter. ISIS promised to be back and we foolishly ignore an open threat.

Hillary has one conviction and that is to advance the career of Hillary Clinton (or Rodman if that becomes politically viable).

It´s really amazing that we had a chance to elect a candidate (Romney) who was willing to leave behind what many of us would call "the good life", and "serve" for what he believed was best for the Country.....and instead of admiring and supporting that, we used it to bludgeon him as if his wealth and his success somehow made him unfit for office.

Step back and compare that to Hillary. She is toxic....stay away.

Ezra Klein´s book, "Blood Feud" shows that Hillary is no better and perhaps worse than Obama. Desperate Democrats will fare no better under her than under Obama. The country will take an equally hard hit under a dual-Clinton Presidency as it has under an Obama Presidency.

Obama destroyed our foreign relations, our medical system, our economy and our Constitution. The Clintons would offer more of the same, but you will never convince a Democrat of that.

Do not be fooled. Obama threw the first punch but Hillary will finish off Uncle Sam. This was the plan. The democrats knew the race card trumped the gender card. Therefore, Obama was put in the ring for the first round. The bell´s about to ring for the second round and Hillary will step in to strike the knock out blow. She and Obama are two peas in a pod. Both are devotees of Saul Alinsky. Hillary will be Obama 2.0.

Sorry, my previous post was blank, but that´s what Hilary is - a blank set of principles. I find it interesting that several of the top stories showing up on the news article roll this morning are about how "Obama didn´t pay attention to Hilary´s stance on Syria," "Hilary is more hawkish on Israel than Obama," etc... I guess the press has rapidly decided that the president is useless at this point (and it took them how long to discover that?) and Hilary is where they need to hitch their wagons...

Why anyone would vote for a serial liar or a woman without a record and who´s never run anything is beyond me but given the state of the general public these days nothing surprises me.

A few days ago in the WSJ (behind the subscription wall) Bret Stephens wrote of Ms. Clinton´s malleable political convictions (which always seem to be subordinate to political calculations):

The political opportunist always lacks the courage of his, or her, convictions. That´s not necessarily because there aren´t any convictions. It´s because the convictions are always subordinated to the needs of ambition and ingratiation. Then again, who cares who Mrs. Clinton really is? When the question needs to be asked, it means we already know, or should know, how to answer it. The truth about Mrs. Clinton isn´t what´s potentially at stake in the next election. It´s the truth about who we are. Are we prepared to believe anything? We tried that with Barack Obama, the man who promised to be whatever we wanted him to be. Mrs. Clinton´s self-reinvention as a hawk invites us to make the mistake twice.

It would be a major mistake for any sentient American voter to believe that a Clinton--especially this Clinton--can be taken at face value. In short, in spite of being married to a husband who as president was convicted of lying in court, Mrs. Clinton is even more egregious, reaching the level of hors concours. She is not to be trusted.

She and Bill had an interest in adopting a child, because that´s what she needed to do. She´s an evil Jezebel, but be not deceived, God is not mocked.

Everyone should have to read the late Barbara Olsen´ book "Hell to Pay". They would get a very real look at who and what Hillary Clinton really is. In her book, Barbara quotes something Hillary once said, and with very hard conviction, that her goal in life was that "She wanted to RUN something". Not govern but to run it. Like an old Southern Plantation. And she wants to have everyone subjected to her wants. She wans to crack the whip and have all of us jump. That is what her lifetime objective has been.

Agree with all the negatives posted here BUT I can´t get the 2000 Senate race out of my mind. I worked the phones for Lazio and it became obvious early on that women were going for Clinton big time and in fact they did. The logic of it is stunningly simple, elect a black man in 2008 and feel good about correcting all the past injustices. Ditto with a woman in 2016. I know, it defies logic but if she runs she wins

This country is doomed if it cannot get pass its identity politics. Identity politics gives us candidates that are not qualified for the job.

Hillery says she disagreed with Barry over Syria. She would have had us attacking Syria. Not ISIL. Hillery and Barry are both wrong. ISIL is in Iraq today because Syria (and Russia) made ´peace´ with them.

Hillary does not have the likability factor that Bill had, or the shiny new penny factor that Obama had.
She has the "mean old hag that has made lots of mistakes" reputation.
I don´t think she is a shoe in, just because the party leaders owe her.

The Dems need only to put up an attractive alternative. The lesbians will be strongly in her corner no matter what, but I´m not so sure the rest of the dems will be that loyal.

Heaven help us if we have another 8 years in which no one is allowed to criticize her policies without a charge of being sexist!

The fact that Bill and Hillary Clinton have for years been raised to the superstar-royalty level of the Democrat Party is all I need to know about how rank and file Democrats think.

Bill, with his until then unimaginable Oval Office oral orifice frivolities, and Hillary, with her frantic, panicky rush to remove everything not nailed down from her attorney Vincent Foster’s office in the White House, the moment she became aware of his hard to believe, Rube Goldberg-ian “suicide” which conveniently culminated far far away at Fort Marcy Park.

That did it for me.

With insurance rates set to spike in Alaska, a new ad faults Senator Mark Begich, one of the most vulnerable Democrats in the country, for supporting Obamacare and missing votes. “When Mark Begich promised Obamacare would reduce costs, we believed him,” the narrator says. “Now, some Alaskans could see their rates increase by thousands of dollars each year.” The ad, released by the Koch-backed Freedom Partners Action Fund cites a recent report on Obamacare rate hikes from Alaska Public Media. “The [Alaska] Division of Insurance says consumers can expect to pay an increase of more than 30 percent on average for coverage,” the

No good deed goes unpunished. In granting residents of Scotland a referendum on their country’s political future, David Cameron surely thought he was doing a good deed. The Scottish National Party would have to put up or shut up. A Yes vote would be a victory for them. A No vote would be a victory for the Scottish Labour Party bigwigs to whom Mr Cameron entrusted the campaign against independence, in the belief that he – despite being the son of a Scotsman – was less qualified than they to make the case for the Union. If Mr Cameron gave a

‘I’m not Barack Obama’ is

This year, far more than the last midterm elections, Democratic candidates across the country are fleeing the incumbent president. Midterms almost always go against the party in the White House, as they did (horribly) in 2010. But that year, Democrats running for Congress mostly stuck with President Obama on the newly passed Affordable Care Act. Not so this time. They are running for the hills. And while in campaigns past candidates have quietly distanced themselves from incumbent presidents (no joint appearances and no mentions in campaign ads), in 2014, some Democrats are brazenly making their marital discord known. The most hilarious example is

Vice President Joe Biden, who in our kingless nation has been sent to play the role of Britain’s Prince Philip, condemned unscrupulous bankers earlier this week and, in doing so, caused something of a flap. While eulogizing his son Beau, Biden spun into a roving digression, lamenting that the United States was being torn asunder by a class of unscrupulous and avaricious bankers — dastardly men who spend their days tricking the public to take “bad loans,” taking advantage of the ignorant and the needy, and foreclosing the homes of military heroes while they serve overseas. Searching for a verbal

Obama´s ´Year of Action´

Americans are afraid. The White House is afraid. Democrats are afraid. President Obama´s "Year of Action" has turned into a Year of Fear. The country seems mired in dread. And that could have mortal consequences for midterm Democrats. New polls out this week betray a rattled public, one that is jittery about war, security, and the economy—and one that is increasingly looking to the GOP, not the party in power. Even as the White House has sought to reassure Americans that the campaign in Iraq will be limited, that the president isn´t going to act alone on immigration in the near future,

For years the conventional wisdom held that President Barack Obama has continued the national security policies of George W. Bush: drone strikes, secret surveillance measures and indefinite detention of terrorists. Now, say some commentators, Obama’s war rhetoric is even sounding like Bush’s. Obama advocates preemptive war to prevent attacks on America by the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria, though the current thinking is that ISIS poses no imminent threat to the United States. Obama’s declaration that “if you threaten America you will find no safe haven” resonates with Bush’s assertion that “you’re either with us or against us.”

Scots Must Vote Nae

GLASGOW — To most Americans, Scotland means golf, whisky and — if they go there — steady drizzle. Even to the millions of Americans whose surnames testify to their Scottish or Scotch-Irish ancestry, the idea that Scotland might be about to become an independent country is baffling. Yet, this week, a referendum could decide just that. With days remaining before the Scottish electorate votes on whether or not to remain in the United Kingdom, the result is too close to call. Born in Glasgow, but having spent most of my life in England and America, I am rather baffled, too.

Health Care Law Is Obama´s Gift

President Obama’s health care law is the gift that keeps on giving to the GOP. In 2010, of course, passage of the law powered the Republican gains of 62 seats in the House of Representatives and pickups of more than 700 state legislative seats across the nation. The law didn’t go into effect in time to hurt the president’s re-election bid in 2012, but it is making life extremely difficult for the president’s party in 2014. Cautious beltway pundit Stuart Rothenberg recently announced that he is “expecting a sizable Republican Senate wave” this year. He believes the GOP will pick up at

Through waves of European revolutions, grand reform movements, the building and dismantling of history’s greatest global empire, two world wars and the establishment of one of the world’s leading welfare states, the United Kingdom has enjoyed remarkable political stability, always evolving to meet challenges but simultaneously holding to the ancient constitutional structures and traditions that have united and protected its people in an uncommonly successful multi-ethnic state. That has been good for Great Britain and good for the world. Now, the country’s future is in question, as Scotland prepares to vote Thursday on whether to secede. Polls show a closely

If past presidents are remembered for their signature achievements, Obama will be remembered for his signature lie: “If you like your health care plan blah, blah, blah.” The reader knows the rest. Although the most consequential of Obama’s lies — it got him reelected — it’s far from his only prevarication. I’ve counted 75 significant lies since his campaign for president began, but that doesn’t begin to tally the casual fibs and hyperbole he spouts seemingly every day. Here are five that illustrate just how much Obama’s presidency is built on falsehoods. 5. “My father left my family when I was 2

Democrats have a lot to worry about in the midterm elections but one of their sturdiest bulwarks against a GOP rout in the fall has been support among women. They have held significant leads over Republicans among women by a number of polling measures. But the latest Wall Street Journal/NBC News Poll has some warning signs for Democrats who are counting on women to help them weather a tough political climate. An important bellwether is the question of which party voters would prefer to control Congress, and it has long been the case that men prefer a Republican Congress and women favor

“Now let’s make two things clear,” Barack Obama told the world on Wednesday, adopting a brisk schoolmaster’s tone. First, ISIS, the self-professed “Islamic state” that has taken over large parts of Syria and Iraq, is not actually Islamic. Why would he say that? Because, as Obama explained, “No religion condones the killing of innocents.”Since Obama is neither a Muslim nor a scholar, that judgement is above his pay grade, as he would put it. As Bernard Lewis, a great authority on Islam, puts it: “It is surely presumptuous for those who are not Muslims to say what is orthodox and

President Barack Obama has declined to attend a dedication ceremony in October for a new memorial honoring American veterans who have been disabled fighting for their country in wars, according to sources close to the event. The American Veterans Disabled for Life Memorial (AVDLM), the first such memorial of its kind, is set to be dedicated during a ceremony on Oct. 5 near the National Mall in downtown Washington, D.C.

President Barack Obama unveiled his plan to tackle the Ebola crisis in West Africa on Tuesday, promising to do far more to tackle the deadly virus he said could result in "hundreds of thousands of people infected" without US intervention. "More than 2,400 men, women, and children are known to have died and we strongly suspect that the actual death toll is higher than that," Obama said in a speech at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention in Atlanta, Georgia. "Hospitals, clinics, and the few treatment centers that do exist have been completely overwhelmed." The president was particularly dire

Democrats are now (very slightly) favored to hold the Senate majority on Nov. 4, according to Election Lab, the Post´s statistical model of the 2014 midterm elections. Election Lab puts Democrats´ chances of retaining their majority at 51 percent -- a huge change from even a few months ago when the model predicted that Republicans had a better than 80 percent chance of winning the six seats they need to take control. (Worth noting: When the model showed Republicans as overwhelming favorites, our model builders -- led by George Washington University´s John Sides -- warned that the model could and

A village of just 1,000 residents in Switzerland has been forced to raise taxes because an African refugee and her seven children cost the local authority £40,000 in benefits every month. Hagenbuch, in the Swiss canton of Zurich, is understood to be spending close to a third of its total annual budget on the family after they arrived from Eritrea in East Africa three years ago. The massive benefits bill covers day-to-day living expenses such as groceries and cleaning costs, as well as paying for four of the woman´s children to be housed in an orphanage and even bills for
