Clinton Corruption

 

By J. Robert Smith  /  AmericanThinker.com

If on January 20 at high noon Hillary Rodham Clinton puts her hand on a bible an historic hypocrisy will occur. It may start the nation to shatter. Read the oath of office:

I do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will faithfully execute the Office of President of the United States, and will to the best of my Ability, preserve, protect and defend the Constitution of the United States.    

The “So help me God” part isn’t required. But since Hillary will make a spurious claim to “faithfully execute” the office of president, why not make a pledge to God? After all, God’s unimportant to Alinsky acolytes, Hillary counted among them. Lest we forget that Alinsky pays tribute to Lucifer in his manual. Saying “God” might not be any more relevant to Hillary than saying “fruitcake.”

Hillary’s claim to serve faithfully is a sham because? The staggering accumulating evidence of wrongdoing by herself and her husband, Bill. That’s just in the last 18 months or so.

Right now, Hillary is indisputably the most corrupt presidential candidate in the nation’s history. As Newt Gingrich has pointed out, the criminality that Hillary and Bill would bring to the White House alone makes anything that happened during the Grant, Harding, and Truman administrations pale by comparison. And for the record, those three presidents weren’t the centers of corruption. That occurred among appointees and others.         

Since Hillary failed to “faithfully execute” the office of Secretary of State, why expect her to do otherwise as president? She who compromised national security by running highly classified information on her private servers? A grave criminal offense, which she’s avoided consequences for because the DOJ either strong-armed or enticed (or both) FBI Director James Comey.

There’s the Clintons’ pay-to-play scheme, decorously called the Clinton Foundation. It’s foundational to the Clintons and their cronies getting rich. If you wanted time with Secretary of State Hillary, it didn’t hurt to drop some rubles in Clinton Foundation coffers. Quite a few rubles, actually.

WikiLeaks just revealed the Doug Band memo that discloses Bill Clinton leveraging the foundation for perks. Hillary took her skim.    

Decades of patterns of ethical violations and criminality are going to vanish if Hillary assumes the presidency? When you talk like a duck and walk like a duck you’re a… duck. Lord knows what other sordid matters lie deeply buried under the Clinton Library and Massage Parlor (hat tip, Rush).

Years of escaping consequences for her crimes must give Hillary an Olympian sense of entitlement. She must feel invincible. Her highhandedness, pathological. This makes for a very dangerous mind. It’s the stuff of hubris on the scale of a Greek tragedy. A Hillary disaster has the potential for national disaster. 

What happens if Hillary wins on November 8? It becomes an election without resolve. It means one battle ends and another begins immediately. The stark truth about the Clintons won’t go away. They’re evading justice won’t disappear. Tens of millions of Americans won’t ever trust Hillary. Nor will the grassroots accept congressional Republican leadership. Paul Ryan’s blather about working with Hillary for the nation’s good isn’t sailing, particularly when Ryan’s agenda is at odds with most conservative and Trump voters’ aims. 

Compounding Hillary’s towering conceit is a flawed leftist worldview that she shares with Obama. Obama’s reflexive leftism is proving now to be wholly ill-equipped to meet the dangers growing overseas and challenges at home.

Despite the propaganda, the economy is moribund. The Federal Reserve has pretty much used up its bag of tricks to soften a major recession’s blow. ObamaCare is an abject failure. Racial unrest festers and promises to burgeon. Keeping open the floodgates to Third Worlders, legal or not, a la Angela Merkel, means spreading social strife.   

Putin, in response to Obama’s baiting and missteps about Syria, saber-rattles. Mishandling of relations with the Philippines by Obama has moved a strategic asset to the PRC’s corner, thereby emboldening the Chinese in their grab of the East and South China Seas. War on both fronts is possible. But appeasement by Hillary is also possible. After all, if you can be paid off, why not pay off? Obama paid ransom to the Iranians. But what does history teach about appeasement? The appeased are rarely satisfied, expecting more. Appeasement leads to subjugation or war.   

A continuance of Obama’s policies (and once Hillary’s) in the Middle East will do nearly nothing to destroy ISIS, its allies, and offshoots. Protracted, indecisive conflict with these enemies means American blood and treasure squandered. Expect more and stepped up terrorism on these shores. Obama continues to wink at Iran’s nuclear weapons development. North Korea continues its missile development.

There’s Obama’s social agenda to transform America into Brazil. Brazil, where the corrupted elite live their lives in gated communities and travel with security, while citizens are left to grapple as best possible with economic stagnation, disease, and crime. Get creative about defending yourself, because guns will be harder to get in Hillary’s America and the cops will have been neutered. The Democrats are all-in, so why wouldn’t Hillary continue down this road?

As a Hillary presidency unravels, the nation will face a multiplicity of brutish realities that will grant few average Americans immunity.

What do we say to those who scold us, “We must honor the results of the presidential election.” Our reply: “We’ll certainly abide by the results. Hillary is president. But we most certainly don’t have to honor the person, she of low character and dishonorable actions. We will not. We will oppose her and her allies with renewed vigor.”

No “honeymoon” will come for the vixen Hillary, notwithstanding calls for such from Washington insiders and MSM pundits. Hillary’s thoroughly rotten. Her agenda and motives are poison to liberty; her leadership will pilot us into more perilous waters.

If Trump loses — Heaven forefend — the movement comprised of tens of millions of passionate, God-fearing citizens remains. Wrote Bruce Heiden in a superb analysis for American Thinker:

But without minimizing the importance of who actually becomes the next president, it should not be so difficult to recognize that Trump’s campaign has always had a second dimension. It combines features of both a presidential campaign and a protest movement.

And this:

The success of this protest campaign is not measured by the margin of popular votes on Election Day, or the Electoral College votes, but rather by the people who join the protest to make themselves heard, by casting votes or in other ways. [Snip] They are manifestations of immense popular discontent to which Trump’s candidacy and issues have given concrete form. 

Democrats, the left, and the establishment (that includes insider Republicans) presume that should Hillary win, the millions of Americans who came out for Trump will disappear after Election Day. Or they can be shunted to the margins. They have grossly underestimated the convictions these Americans hold and the passions that have been aroused after years of affronts and abuses to their liberty and values.   

If a corrupt candidate becomes a corrupt president on November 8, the nation’s woes will only begin.
