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.

Leading in polls, third-party Senate candidate Greg Orman is walking a delicate tightrope in his Kansas campaign: He´s running as an independent while Democrats hope he bolsters their chances of retaining their Senate majority. That tenuous balance is evident in the way he staffs up and in the groups who are supporting him. The main super PAC supporting his campaign has sounded unusually partisan notes, posting comments about preventing a "right-wing takeover" of the Senate and touting Orman´s ability to get Democrats to "coalesce" behind him. The new outside group, Kansans Support Problem Solvers, headed by Kansas City lawyer Greg Wolf, was

Go to a grocery store in California and buy all the milk, eggs and vegetables you want. But there’s one thing you won’t find at the checkout line, beginning July 1, 2015: Plastic bags to carry your stuff home. Gov. Jerry Brown (D) on Tuesday signed into law a ban on single-use plastic bags, making California the first state to prohibit stores from using the ubiquitous carry-alls. Shoppers will be charged 10 cents for every paper bag and heavy-duty plastic bag they use. “This bill is a step in the right direction,” Brown said in a press release announcing his approval. “It

A year ago this week, Healthcare.gov launched and set a new standard for costly technological disasters. The portal for obtaining private insurance under Obamacare proved completely impenetrable for consumers in its first two months. The constant error messages, glitches and outages became fodder for late night comics, but the Americans forced to interact with the site after Obamacare pushed them out of coverage they already liked were not amused. A year later, most of Obamacare´s outwardly noticeable technological frustrations are gone. Even though the law remains as unpopular as ever — at 25 percent support among U.S. adults, according to the latest

Republicans seem to be pulling away in the race to win a majority in the U.S. Senate. At least this week. In mid-September, several polls seemed to be going the other way. The well-informed Washington Post analyst Chris Cillizza wrote that for the first time in this election cycle odds favored the Democrats keeping their majority. Two weeks later he was singing another tune. Analysts at the Post, the New York Times and FiveThirtyEight, in addition to psephologists Charlie Cook, Stuart Rothenberg and Larry Sabato, all agreed.What may have happened is this: Over the summer Democrats used their money advantage to savage

“The legislative department is everywhere . . . drawing all power into its impetuous vortex.” — James Madison, Federalist 48 Unfortunately, Congress’s vortex now spins the other way, throwing off powers that the executive scoops up. Hence this autumn’s spectacle: Feverish House and Senate candidates waging ferocious campaigns to win or retain offices that are of rapidly diminishing significance. It is official: America “is at war.” We know this because the president’s press secretary says so. Congress has not said so, but many members say that the Islamic State must be countered and that they may have more to say about this

Sens. Mark Udall, Jeanne Shaheen, and Kay Hagan all serve on the Senate Armed Services Committee. With national security in the headlines, that position could give them standing to speak with authority about terrorist threats and what they believe the United States should do to respond to them. But at the moment when the president’s response to the threat from ISIS is being criticized, and approval of his handling of foreign affairs is low (at only 34 percent), being a member from the same party with responsibility for national security issues may be a liability. Republicans sure think so. In

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

60 Percent of Voters Want
Obamacare to Be Repealed

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.

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

In her just-released memoir, 27 year-old "Girls" star Lena Dunham claims that as a 19 year-old Oberlin College student in Ohio, she was raped by a college Republican. In the first chapter that addresses the encounter, Dunham describes the "ill-fated evening of lovemaking" as awkward and hollow. The most sensational moment comes from the fact that "Barry" wasn´t wearing a condom. In the next chapter, Dunham backtracks with the claim that she´s an "unreliable narrator" and accuses "Barry" of rape: [I]n another essay in this book I describe a sexual encounter with a mustachioed campus Republican as the upsetting but

A recently retired Secret Service agent told MailOnline on Thursday that former director Julia Pierson´s resignation will be welcomed by the agency´s rank-and-file because ´people in the service thought she was a joke from Day One.´ He attributed her swift fall from grace to a cadre of ´p***ed off agents who had had enough´ of feeling disrespected by the service´s first female director. ´Putting her in charge was part of the [Obama] administration´s push to feminize the service after the "hookergate" nightmare,´ the agent said, referring to agents who were fired after patronizing prostitutes during a security-check trip to Colombia

Deadly, irrational, and determined, the intruder snuck across a weakened perimeter. Eluding capture, the intruder was detained only after missteps and close calls. The spin began soon after the threat was isolated. Information was selectively leaked. Half-truths and untruths were uttered. Responsibility was avoided; privileges and credentials asserted; authority reasserted. Trust us. Remain calm. Don’t panic. This is the template of recent events. A mental case jumps the White House fence. He makes it to the East Room before he’s tackled by an off-duty Secret Service agent. Initial statements turn out to be misleading or false.

It’s the “Dawn of the Planet of the Apes.” A New York appeals court next week will consider whether chimps should have the same rights as human beings. The extraordinary proceeding is the result of a lengthy battle by animal-rights activists who argue that animals with human qualities — including chimps — are entitled to human protections, including freedom from captivity. Steven Wise, part of the Nonhuman Rights Project, which is leading the effort, will have to convince a panel of Albany appellate judges that a chimp name Tommy is a “legal person” to get him moved from a cage

What on earth is an ohbee-guynee? Apparently it is a weird Obamaspeak pronunciation of OB/GYN (pronounced oh-bee-gee-why-en). For the president’s benefit, let me specify that means a doctor who delivers babies and takes care of the lady parts. When President Obama announced the departure of Eric Holder from his position as attorney general, he also mentioned his “good friend,” the AG’s wife, Dr. Sharon Malone, and he called her an “ohbee-guynee.” (snip) it almost seems as though someone raised in a fantasized USSR training camp for deep cover agents was inserted into the identity of Barack Obama and loosed upon

President Obama was at Northwestern University on Thursday to deliver an economic speech that, he and his team hoped, would lay out the case for why the public is better off today than they were six years ago -- even if they didn´t feel it in their everday lives. Instead, Obama just gave every Republican ad-maker in the country more fodder for negative ads linking Democratic candidates to him. Here are the four sentences that will draw all of the attention (they come more than two thirds of the way through the speech): "I am not on the ballot this

It is the stuff that nightmares are made of, and day by day it is getting worse. The Ebola epidemic, says Dr Margaret Chan, director-general of the World Health Organisation (WHO), is now “the greatest peacetime challenge” since the Second World War. Yet her own organisation’s tardiness, partly caused by cuts, together with reductions in--and misuse of--funds elsewhere, are largely responsible for Ebola spiralling out of control. [Snip] It’s just the beginning. At present the numbers of people infected are thought to be doubling in under 30 days--and the blue-chip US Center for Disease Control and Prevention predicts that, if Ebola

In a speech in Boston, First Lady Michelle Obama left behind talk of exercise and school lunches, exchanging it all for bald politics by claiming that under her husband the US economy is now better off "by almost every economic measure." The First Lady appeared at the Strand Theater Friday to stump for Martha Coakley´s campaign for Governor of Massachusetts. Coakley needs help badly, as even in blue, blue Massachusetts, the race between Democrat Coakley and Republican Charlie Baker is essentially a toss up.

WASHINGTON — Representative Elijah E. Cummings of Maryland was at the grocery store the other day when he ran into an elderly black woman who expressed growing concern about President Obama’s safety. Why, she asked, wasn’t he being better protected by his Secret Service agents? The furor that led to this week’s resignation of the director of the Secret Service resonated deeply among blacks, outraged that those supposed to be guarding the first black president were somehow falling down on the job — and suspicious even without evidence that it may be deliberate. “It is something that is widespread in

ATLANTA — Texas, America’s second-most populous state behind California, saw 13 of its last abortion clinics turn away women on Friday, after a federal appeals court upheld a law that practically guarantees that only a handful of clinics will remain open in the state. The strictest-of-its-kind Texas law requires abortion providers to build hospital-grade facilities and obtain sometimes impossible-to-get hospital admitting privileges. After signed into law last year by Gov. Rick Perry (R), the law forced most of the 41 clinics operating to close. Thursday’s ruling wiped out a brief victory this summer for abortion rights proponents,
