One flew over Clinton’s legacy

A day in the life of Hillary news. It lives on and on and on.
)Really? — “Former NY Times Chief: Clinton Is ‘Fundamentally Honest’”

At what point in her tenure — covering a whole multitude of scandals — can we say “Hillary Clinton is fundamentally dishonest?” I think even the people get that one. They may care or not, but they get it.

From the Free Beacon article:

“A former student of [Jill Abramson’s] who is a leader of Harvard’s Institute of Politics, thinks a gender-related double standard gets applied to Clinton. “We expect purity from women candidates,” he said.

Right, so it’s sexist to question Hillary’s poor judgement, flip-flopping, scandals and finally not to trust her. Though Abramson herself charged sexism after NYT fired her.

)If the shoe fits — “Clinton Complains About Super PACs and Big Money in Politics”

“At a Monday rally in Madison, Wisconsin, Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton mourned the role of big money and super PACs in politics, although she has benefitted heavily from them.

Clinton decried the Supreme Court decision Citizens United, which ruled that independent political expenditures could not be regulated by the federal government due to the First Amendment.” — Wa Free Beacon

When in Rome… and Hillary is definitely in Rome. She’s in Wisconsin, home of the union lobby that used every bit of special interest leverage it could to oust Walker and lost.

Still, Clinton cannot prove her point considering the tens of millions in pac funding employed by Bush, on his behalf, or others this cycle that had little to no effect. Let’s not forget the Citizen’s United case directly related to telling the truth about her career.

Pot meets kettle:

“Clinton’s close ties to Wall Street have also been a point of contention in the campaign as much of her campaign’s financial support comes from large Wall Street firms. She has given many paid speeches to Wall Street firms.

Goldman Sachs infamously gave her $675,000 to give just three speeches.”

)Speaking distrust: “Report: FBI Moves to Interview Top Clinton Aides in Email Probe”

“FBI officials are preparing to question top Hillary Clinton aides at the State Department in the latest leg of the federal government’s probe into her unsecured email system.”…

“The interviews, along with the case’s final review, could take weeks to complete, threatening to haunt the former secretary of state for the remainder of the presidential primary elections.” — Free Beacon

And yet the saga of scandal and genesis of distrust of Hillary continues to dog her.But she lectures on the evils of money and its influence. What about the evils of those in power, and their use of its resources?

)So Clintonesque — “Loretta Lynch’s law firm tied to Hillary Clinton”
WND and Jerome Corsi report on Clintons’ ties to Loretta Lynch’s former law firm.

Maybe it is no wonder she seems confident. So conflict of interest anyone? But then both Clintons and Obama are walking talking conflicts of interest, everywhere.

I’ll take honesty for a million, Alex…. Who is Hillary Clinton?

One for the Democrat kitty

Bonus round on money and influence: “Moran Registers to Lobby for Groups That Were Among His Top Donors in Congress” — Washington Free Beacon:

Former Rep. Jim Moran (D., Va.) has registered to lobby on behalf of firms who were among his top funders throughout his political career in Washington.

And no one is really surprised. All that above reported in just one day.

But Jill Abramson says there is absolutely good reason to trust Hillary — er to believe her. Couple that with her promise to continue Obama’s deceitful legacy of distrust.

You can’t ask for more hope of no change than that.

Search for Competency

How do you start a post that is filled with sanctimonious hubris, self-serving political interests, elite establishment powers and politics? Maybe you just dive in.

The recent debate taught some of us that the media is an important player in that process. But it was evident from the beginning when CNN wanted to use old polls in placing candidates on the two different tiers. It proved media can and does have some influence in the debates — not to mention the questions.

Elite establishment likes to pick the winners. Should I say they like to decide? With all these influences coming together, the one thing that unifies them is the establishment. Why don’t we just have an Establishment Party? It would be simpler.

Even despite all this influence peddling, I have a few observations that stand out to me:

Both Parties are having primaries, why does it appear the media only cares about one, the Republican primary? No one is interested in Dems’ views on current issues.

The media competes on what probing questions to ask Republican candidates, especially the outsider ones. No one asks any tough probing policy questions to the Democrats, including Hillary. In fact, Hillary had refused to state her position on the XL Pipeline for months. No one pushed the issue. Then suddenly, in the face of dwindling polls and the Pope”s visit highlighting the climate change agenda, she vows to oppose it.

Media is casting its vote all the time. They don’t like Trump. They all would like him out, but they do like the ratings he brings them. But don’t talk about Hillary’s opponents.

All these factors together help create one atmosphere of unrest. People were already angry enough, which is why Trump got on top. Democrats are too, but they look to a big government socialist like Sanders for solutions — more government. But people are not just angry with government or Congress. It’s toward media, too, long a point of contention with conservatives, and anything connected with old-guard establishment.

So we have the government not trusted, in any branch. Media is distrusted more and more and under suspicion. The economy is no pillar of stability, not to most people anyway. The world is destabilized with refugees now flooding all across Europe. And Kerry already announced we are going to take a 80,000 and 100,000 the following year. Putin is putting on the blitz.

IRS was targeting people, EPA is running roughshod. Hillary is a ham sandwich short of indictment. We still have the border crisis which people are ticked off with. Mad but no, they do not just want new immigration law. We can’t trust the government to enforce current laws. So we have that old festering wound which doesn’t trust government on anything. Nor the media. We can’t trust the government to investigate itself.

They are angry with the effects Obamacare has had. They are angry with the debt and budget, and Planned Parenthood. They are angry with the effects government has had over their lives and liberty.They are angry with the abuse of power. They are angry that they elected representatives who forgot what they came to Washington for. They are angry at their Party who shortstops their voice in elections. Pissed off would be putting it mildly.

Then you have career politicians vying to fix the problems, with the track records they already have — generally making things worse — while the establishment runs interference to pick them. Then there are the denials about many of the problems we take seriously and they don’t seem to. Talk about icing the cake!
