What’s the old saw about being careful of what you wish for because you might just get it? Which brings us to study the real Hillary Clinton, not the media creation, not the hyped and spun version reincarnated from the original form.
What will we really get if Clinton wins the presidency and becomes the Commander-in-chief of the mightiest military force on Earth?
We will get a Commander-in-chief who, like her predecessor, has never commanded anything in her life, has never run any substantial organization in her past and has a dismal record of choosing advisers for husband Bill. Remember Zoe Baird, Webb Hubbell, Craig Livingstone, Janet Reno?
We’ll get an ill-tempered woman who curses worse than the most abusive sailor or heavy-metal guitarist you’ve ever heard. To see the long list of her quoted vulgarities and racial epithets against people, Google “Inside the White House”, “American Evita”, “Unlimited Access”, “Crossfire”, “Dereliction of Duty” and “The Truth About Hillary.” Her barroom mouth caused the crew of the “Marine One” helicopter to nickname her craft “Broomstick One.”
America will get a woman who has sold herself to the highest bidder all her life, including charging $500,000 to sleep overnight in the White House Lincoln Bedroom and $250,000 for half-hour or one-hour speeches. By 2013, the Clinton Foundation had been built, largely through donations from foreigners, into a $2 billion empire, attracting $250 million or so each year in new revenue. Hillary as Secretary of State, with a wink and a nod, boosted revenues a lot. After American Thinker called the Clinton Foundation a “money-laundering scheme”, look for President Hillary to try adding some gloss to its public legitimacy.
We’ll see Clinton veer to the left of Obama—even moreso than now– on a whole host of political issues, including a variety of jacked-up taxes, immigration, entitlements, energy, trade, more regulation on businesses, work disincentives, student loans, charter schools and health care.
Once again, we will get to see whether Clinton will mishandle state secrets, negligently violate federal secrecy procedures, engage in security breaches and put national security at risk.
The Wall Street Journal states that what we’ll be getting from her is “more crony capitalism, ethical corner-cutting and self-serving political deals”. We may hear more cooing from Clinton about how “It Takes a Village to Raise a Child”, but her new mantra could be “It Takes a Government to Raise a Child,” according to the Journal.
If Americans believe health care and day care are expensive now, wait until we taxpayers get the bill to pay for Hillary Clinton’s government.
We will see unrestrained deficit spending, increases in the welfare state, and an expansion of the national debt beyond $20 trillion. And, if she becomes president, we can watch the fawning mainstream media become even more of a Super-PAC for Clinton than it is now.
America will see Clinton oppose fracking–fracking drives down energy costs for the poor–even though she enthusiastically promoted fracking around the globe when she was Secretary of State.
We will get her continued lectures that Americans are culpable and Congress is responsible for inspiring domestic terrorists’ carnage, because we’ve failed to ban guns and because traditional American values and Western culture have caused Islamic fanatics to go over the edge and commit mass murder. Blaming guns is simply her dodge to hide her contempt for Americans who just want to survive attacks by terrorists and wackos– murderers who can buy whatever guns they want on the black market or who can steal them.
And yes, we will hear more of her proposals that we should “empathize with the perspective and point of view” of America’s “enemies”, and “respect” them, as she stated in a speech at Georgetown University.
In elected, Clinton will bring several Mayflower moving trucks of personal/emotional “baggage” to the presidency. The power of the presidency, as a bully pulpit, will allow her to talk-the-talk and walk-the-walk of extreme far left ideology. An attorney friend may have gotten it right when he said, “The country has a better chance of surviving four years of Trump than eight years of Clinton”.
