So who do the Democrats have for 2016?
They’ll tell you it’s going to be Hillary Clinton, but with each passing week that looks less like a statement of fact and more like a wish…and a weak wish at that given the constant drip-drip-drip of scandal out of her foundation and incompetent lies out of her record as Secretary of State.
Who could honestly say Hillary Clinton can be trusted in the White House? We already know from her husband’s time in office that the Clintons offer a Third World kleptocracy disguised as representative democracy, but in the time since they left the presidency, “dead broke,” there is little disguise to the kleptocracy. The Clintons are bought and paid for by some of the world’s worst actors — Middle Eastern petrotyrants, Ukrainian oligarchs, Putin stooges, African warlords and George Stephanopoulos, to name a few.
And we are finally finding proof of what was known from the start — that the massacre in Benghazi on Sept. 11, 2012 was the inevitable result of an arms-for-jihadists program set up off the books by Clinton and her pals in the Obama administration, in which the CIA was conscripted to oversee the distribution of Qaddafi’s weapons stash to Syrian rebels not favored by the local Benghazi al-Qaeda affiliate, and amid this grand idea Clinton made no effort to provide security to her employees there.
We are finding this out three years later, of course, despite the best efforts of Hillary and her stooges to hide it from the public. We are also finding out, thanks to the exploits of a Romanian computer hacker who exposed her crony Sid Blumenthal’s emails, that Hillary is still hiding the complete record of her emails from the public — and correspondence between the former Secretary of State and her morally vacant henchman with business interests served well by Qaddafi’s ouster, we know, was both material to policy and proves she told bald-faced lies to the public about the origin of the Benghazi massacre.
We know it was not some YouTube video making fun of the prophet of Islam, despite what Clinton told the survivors of the slain.
The lies and illegality of Hillary Clinton are more than that of her husband, who skated past his multiple sexual assaults and perjury in attempting to cover them up by alleging the hot water around him was “just about sex.” With Hillary, there are dead bodies littered all over the Libyan coastal plain, Putin has access to as much as half of American domestically produced uranium, Eastern Ukraine groans under the Russian yoke, and ISIS roams over territory paid for in American blood.
Couple such a record with a candidate without even a shred of charisma or youthful energy and any sober analysis of the Hillary Clinton campaign can only conclude it’s a disaster in the making.
But while Hillary might be a train wreck, the more we hear from her potential Democrat competitors the worse they look.
Take Elizabeth “Fauxcahontas” Warren, the lily-white millionaire woman from Oklahoma currently representing Massachusetts, and the mouth-breathing anti-capitalist crowd, in the Senate. We already know that Warren fraudulently held herself out to be of Native American stock as a device to soak up affirmative action baby status as she moved up the academic ladder on her way to Harvard. Warren is currently the subject of political onanism among those Democrats who don’t like Hillary because she’s too conservative.
But thanks to the reporting of Jillian Kay Melchior and Eliana Johnson at National Review, we now know that Warren’s dishonesty goes deeper. The crusader against greed in the housing industry who decries house-flipping for profit, it turns out, grossed a quarter of a million dollars in a series of house flips prior to the industry crash in 2008 before her fortune was made. You’ll find few better examples of a limousine liberal seeking to shut the door of economic prosperity behind her.
And then there is Bernie Sanders, next to Clinton the only announced Democrat in the race. Sanders, the senior senator from loony-left Vermont, is actually changing parties to run as a Democrat; he’s represented his constituents as an avowed socialist registered as an independent. And since entering the race he’s made lots of noises showing himself to be a wannabe communist dictator — whining about 23 brands of deodorant on grocery store shelves while children go hungry and pining for the return of the 90 percent tax bracket America had during World War II (as a result of which most Americans are shackled to their jobs due to health insurance).
No one will vote for Sanders, because even in this age of cultural decline Venezuelan-style troglodyte economics will only sell when it’s presented by someone who can credibly brand his or her critics racist or bigoted. Sanders, being even whiter than Clinton or Warren and equipped with far more privileged plumbing, not to mention suffering the further infirmities of old age and an accent reminiscent of an army private in an old World War II movie, ain’t the guy.
Sanders can’t say he’s a crook or a fraud. No wonder he’s a newcomer to the Democrats.
