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...

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.

Lay aside for now all of the arguments that can be made about the weaknesses of catastrophic climate change predictions. In fact, for purposes of discussion, let’s assume that the worst-case scenario is likely to come true. The paradox of climate change is exactly this: the more serious the problem, the more implausible are the remedies of the environmental community. That’s what ought to make the climate campaigners realize that last weekend’s mega-march in New York City represents the dead-end for their cause. Truly we can invoke that overused cliché that climate change has “jumped the shark.” Here’s why: From the

A new poll finds that three-fifths of likely voters support the repeal of Obamacare. A large plurality — 44 percent — wants to see Obamacare repealed and replaced with a conservative alternative. A much smaller group —16 percent — wants to see it repealed but not replaced. Less than one in three respondents — 32 percent — would like to keep Obamacare, whether in its current form or in amended form. So, with a conservative alternative in play, 60 percent of Americans support repeal, while only 32 percent oppose it.McLaughlin & Associates asked 1,000 likely voters

Two-time presidential loser Mitt Romney´s sprawling network of consultants and aides is sitting tight, waiting for the former Massachusetts governor to decide whether he wants to run for president a third time. Romney, who until recently had long denied any true interest in another bid, is reportedly talking the idea over with his family. Ann Romney isn´t exactly denying it. Former running mate Paul Ryan, thought to be a possible presidential contender himself, is almost encouraging it. And Romney himself declined to close the door on the possibility in an interview with Romneyphile Hugh Hewitt. As I write this, an email signed

Random thoughts on the passing scene: What a non-judgmental society amounts to is that common decency is optional — which means that decency is likely to become less common. The biggest issue in this fall’s election is whether the Obama administration will end when Barack Obama leaves the White House or whether it will continue on, by appointing federal judges with lifetime appointments who share President Obama’s contempt for the Constitution. Whether such judges will be confirmed by the Senate depends on whether the Senate continues to be controlled by Democratic Majority Leader Harry Reid. Why in the world would any sane American

It was a hit job. Sixty veterans signing a much publicized “Open Letter to Fox News” — yet the signers were mysteriously never identified beyond the military branch in which they served. No wonder. I have been through the list of sixty, and it is filled with Obama campaign workers, one ex-Obama White House aide, liberal activists, Democratic Party congressional candidates, Democratic Party state legislators, and more. The letter was sponsored by the Truman Project, a ten-year-old think tank with a focus on national security. Its board of directors includes Hunter Biden, the son of the Vice President. None of which

It’s decision time for Republicans and Democrats battling for control of the Senate. Five weeks before the midterm elections, party leaders are peering into their campaign bank accounts, doing their math and trying to figure out where to put their money — and where to abandon hope. While it is unclear which party will be running the upper chamber in 2015, the states that will decide the race are now apparent. The decisions by D.C. power brokers are sure to be a disappointment for some candidates who will be left to the wayside. “It’s not a job for the sentimental. It’s hard to call

Except for the brief interregnum that separated the Republican Party’s George W. Bush era from its current Tea Party incarnation, President Obama has never enjoyed the kind of high approval ratings that used to accompany most two-term presidents. Whether it’s due to his race, our growing ideological polarization, the poor economy, or a combination of all of the above, Obama’s rarely known what it feels like to be a president of whom more than half of Americans approve. According to the Huffington Post, it only took until the tenth month of his first year before his number dipped below 50

LAKE VILLAGE, Ark. -- Tom Cotton has been traveling this large, rural state in a camouflage-painted RV, on the hunt for an “elusive” and “mysterious” Arkansan. This enigmatic figure is one who invariably sides with President Obama on the issues -- a stance generally viewed with distain in a state that voted for Mitt Romney by 24 percentage points in 2012. “I can’t find him anywhere I go in Arkansas!” the Republican congressman tells a group of supporters gathered last week at JJ’s Lakeside Café, located here in the southeastern part of the state, a region that traditionally has voted

LITTLE ROCK, Ark.—I first visited this town as an investigative reporter trying to learn why authorities had railroaded a man named James Dean Walker for a sensational 1963 shootout in which a North Little Rock policeman was killed. Walker had found Jesus behind bars, earned a degree, started a Jaycees chapter, and been a model prisoner. But North Little Rock cops invariably rallied to prevent his parole and one day Walker walked away from a furlough. He showed up in California where he lived peacefully until he was picked up a few years later. There was some evidence that Walker was innocent—and

The ground under Bruce Braley has shifted. The Democratic U.S. Senate candidate is 6 points behind his GOP rival, Joni Ernst, according to The Des Moines Register´s new Iowa Poll of likely voters. Ernst leads 44 percent to 38 percent in a race that has for months been considered deadlocked. She leads nearly 4-1 with rural voters, and is up double digits with independents. "Very interesting, and good news not just for Ernst but also for the GOP´s chances of taking the U.S. Senate," said national political prognosticator Larry Sabato of "Sabato´s Crystal Ball." Just seven months ago, political analysts considered Braley almost a

Attorney General Eric Holder is resigning at long last. Good riddance. (If President Obama wants to stay the course, I would suggest Al Sharpton as a replacement. Nobody can frustrate legal process like Big Al. Sharpton effortlessly dodges lawsuits and tax collectors. He’s got the kind of legal experience that makes him a perfect fit at the Justice Department.) Holder is the legal ringleader for today’s Democrats and their noxious culture of corruption. After being held in criminal contempt of Congress in June 2012 -- the first such citation against a sitting attorney general in American history -- for a while he

On 30 September 2011 Barack Obama woke up to the news that his order to kill Anwar al-Awlaki, an American citizen living in Yemen, in a drone attack had been carried out successfully. That afternoon, according to Mark Helperin and John Heilemann’s book Double Down, the US president addressed his inner core in the White House Roosevelt room about issues on which he felt he should be truer to his progressive roots. Three years later, he is still wrestling with most of them. There was climate change: last week his administration confirmed it would give nothing to assist poor countries to

A new Government Accountability Institute (GAI) report reveals that President Barack Obama has attended only 42.1% of his daily intelligence briefings (known officially as the Presidential Daily Brief, or PDB) in the 2,079 days of his presidency through September 29, 2014. The GAI report also included a breakdown of Obama’s PDB attendance record between terms; he attended 42.4% of his PDBs in his first term and 41.3% in his second. The GAI’s alarming findings come on the heels of Obama’s 60 Minutes comments on Sunday, wherein the president laid the blame for the Islamic State’s (ISIS) rapid rise squarely at

President Obama shared an elevator earlier this month with an armed security contractor who has three felony convictions relating to assault and battery, in the latest report of a serious violation of Secret Service security protocols. Multiple sources confirmed to Fox News the incident, which took place in an elevator during Obama´s Sept. 16 visit to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention in Atlanta. The incident was first reported by The Washington Post and the Washington Examiner. The latest embarrassment for the Secret Service comes after agency Director Julia Pierson told lawmakers at a Tuesday hearing

President Barack Obama has taken a lot of flack since his Sunday night “60 Minutes” interview, in which he blamed the intelligence community for his failure to tackle the threat posed by the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria. And that is right and proper. Because not only was his excuse of blaming us a lie, but when questioned on his lie, White House press secretary Josh Earnest doubled down with a whole new lie — both of which are easily, publicly proven false. On Sunday, Obama said the intelligence community had underestimated the rise of ISIS, saying in an interview

Former President Jimmy Carter claimed Wednesday that he would have been re-elected and beaten Ronald Reagan in 1980 if had been more “manly” in his dealings with Iran. Interviewed by the show "CNBC Meets," Carter repeated his belief that the failed mission to free American hostages held in Tehran killed his chances, but then added that had he gone to war, America would have rewarded him with a second term in 1980.

The Obama administration found itself scrambling on Tuesday to defend President Barack Obama for his lackluster 42% attendance record on daily intelligence briefings, a finding from a new report issued by the non-partisan Government Accountability Institute (GAI). When asked about the GAI revelation on Fox News, State Department spokeswoman Jen Psaki appeared flustered and unprepared. "Well, I have no validation of those statistics," said Psaki. "There are a range of ways that you can get your intelligence briefings on the road, in the White House, and I know that he receives those whenever he can."

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention notified the media at 3:32 p.m. Tuesday that Dallas has the first diagnosed Ebola case in the nation. The federal agency scheduled a media briefing at 5:30 p.m. from its headquarters in Atlanta. Dallas County officials are expected to participate. Dallas County went through a day-long anxiety attack Tuesday, waiting to hear if the first Ebola diagnosis in the nation would happen here. An unnamed patient at Texas Health Presbyterian Hospital of Dallas was placed in isolation while awaiting test results for the dreaded virus. Apparently, the patient had traveled recently to a

The sympathetic news media is avoiding mentioning his name, instead they are blaming the lack of a football intro for the massive collapse in ratings Sunday night for President Barack Obama’s appearance on CBS’ 60 Minutes. Americans turned away from watching Obama even though he was being interviewed about the nation’s new war on ISIS. For example, Deadline Hollywood didn’t even mention Obama’s 60 Minutes interview when reporting on the drop in viewers. “With no football lead-in, CBS’ Sunday lineup fell from last week. As expected, the drop was steepest at 7 PM, with 60 Minutes (1.1) off by 69%

Well, that didn’t take long. Just two weeks into the new season of “The View,” co-hosts Rosie O’Donnell and Whoopi Goldberg tore into each other during a commercial break — in front of their stunned studio audience. The spat erupted Thursday after Goldberg interrupted O’Donnell to go to a commercial break before the mother of five was finished commenting in a “Hot Topic” discussion about spanking children on the ABC gabfest. O’Donnell refuses to wear an earpiece to stay in contact with producers while the live show is airing, so she had no clue it was time to stop talking.

Kansas Tea Party supporters are threatening to sit out the state’s pivotal Senate election, potentially dealing another blow to the reelection hopes of Sen. Pat Roberts (R-Kan.). Though schisms within the GOP base rarely have such an outsized impact on a general election contest, the lack of support from the conservative base could be devastating to the vulnerable Roberts’s chances against surging independent Greg Orman. Multiple sources tell The Hill that a group of Tea Party leaders in the state are meeting Wednesday to try to decide whether they should go to bat for the incumbent this fall or sit out of

Sacramento, Calif. - Gov. Jerry Brown on Tuesday signed legislation imposing the nation's first statewide ban on single-use plastic bags, driven to action by a buildup of litter and damage to aquatic ecosystems. A national coalition of plastic bag manufacturers immediately said it would seek a voter referendum to repeal the law, which is scheduled to take effect in July 2015. Under SB270, plastic bags will be phased out of large grocery stores starting next summer and convenience stores and pharmacies in 2016. The law allows grocers to charge a fee of at least 10 cents for using paper bags. State Sen. Alex Padilla, D-Los Angeles,

Alton Nolen´s mother and sister posted a video on Facebook where they apologized to the families of victims in Nolen´s alleged attack last Thursday in Moore, Oklahoma. The two women insisted that Nolen was acting outside of his character because he believed in God and was not a violent person. Nolen, whose Facebook page indicates that he recently converted to Islam, is accused of attacking co-workers Colleen Hufford and Traci Johnson after he was reportedly fired for "personnel issues" from a Vaughan Foods factory. He reportedly beheaded Hufford, 54, and stabbed Johnson, 43, multiple times before being shot by reserve police officer
