How Hillary Clinton Disqualified Herself from the Presidency

Hillary Clinton has disqualified herself from the presidency.

No matter what your tribal politics may be, after FBI Director James Comey’s withering testimony before Congress on Thursday over her email scandal, there really is no way around it, is there?

She disqualified herself by her own hand.

Mrs. Clinton, former secretary of state, has already proved she can’t be trusted with national secrets. She put those secrets at risk by using a private email server kept in her basement, against security protocol.

That server was likely hacked by foreign intelligence. She failed, miserably, in protecting the secrets of her nation.

So for all this she should be rewarded and promoted and handed the near absolute power of an imperial presidency?

And, she lied to the American people. That much is clear. She lied about what she did and how and why. There are tapes of it floating all about on the internet, lies to reporters, lies in those rare public appearances where she actually takes questions.

Comey also confirmed that she allowed her lawyers — who didn’t have security clearance — to view and assess her vast store of incriminating emails.

Clinton did all this not in the national interest, but in the Hillary interest.

It was all done to keep her presidential candidacy viable. History will tell our children what we already know, that it was always all about Hillary.

And so, it follows, logically, that Mrs. Clinton cannot be president.

The Republicans didn’t do this to her. The mad barbarian Donald Trump, ranting and shouting and mugging like some vulgar late-night TV pitchman, didn’t do it. Thoughtful Democrats who put their country above their ambitions didn’t do it.

Years from now, she may wander the corridors of whatever palace she finds herself in, wringing her hands and muttering nonsense, her hair disheveled in the night, and it won’t change things.

She’s disqualified herself. If she continues to campaign, she may win the election, but she’ll only have power to leverage support, and that isn’t good.

The worst thing in all of this is that any defense of her actions only reinforces a dangerous belief that keeps growing in America, that there are two standards of justice:

One for the citizen suckers like us. And another for the lords and the elites, like the Clintons.

That is extremely risky, especially now, with the country in a volatile, anti-establishment mood, after years in which a sizable portion of the electorate has remained unemployed or underemployed, and marginalized and ridiculed by the servants of the ruling elites.

A nation that values a commonly held belief in the obligations of leadership couldn’t ever elect someone like this. Advocating for someone like this would be seen as shameful.

Only a corrupt nation could do so, a nation that values a Chicago-style political payoff more than it values a belief that leaders should be held to ethical standards.

Once a nation acknowledges publicly that it is corrupt (as in national elections), that its people care only for what they can put in their pocket or stuff into their mouths, something terrible can happen.

There is a weakening. A listlessness, a nihilism, where personal appetites and longings for celebrity outweigh what was once understood as common virtue. And what comes next, inevitably, is a fall, and the frightened citizens rally around a strong and brutal personality who offers them muscular leadership. And what they once had is gone.

If you read histories about great empires and how they lost their way — slowly, inexorably, the illness growing along the dull spine of what they once had been — then you already know what happens.

And if you don’t read history, it really doesn’t matter. Just watch some more TV or tweet something, have a drink and enjoy yourselves.

I’m certain that many will clench their fists and denounce me as a Clinton-Hater. But hate by definition is irrational, and so I reject the hater diagnosis.

Instead, I’m probably something of a Clinton-Loather. Hate is about the loss of control, like the barking of a dog or someone who shrieks into the wind or at a crowd. Loathing takes time and consideration. And I’ve had years of watching the Clintons lie and dissemble and tell partial truths and get away with it, and take advantage of the principles of honorable men such as James Comey.

Whether you’re a Clinton loather or hater or some simple Clinton meat puppet or Clinton lover and Hillaryista, consider:

If Mrs. Clinton were a junior foreign service officer, or a young special agent of the FBI, she’d have been fired. She’d have immediately lost any security clearance she had. She’d have been prohibited from ever securing government employment again.

Yet after failing miserably to keep our secrets, some want her elected president, where the protection of secrets is vital.

How can she possibly lead when those under her command know what she did?

If Hillary Clinton were anyone but a candidate for president, she would have been drummed out of government service for her reckless and unethical behavior. You don’t promote such people. You send them away.

You don’t elect them president.

The Dems had to know, and they had the power to maneuver her out or the running. Instead, they backed her. Sure, it’s sensible to keep HRC as far away from classified info as possible. Unfortunately, “sensible” is a word I’ve ceased believing has anything to do with the Hill.

I just hope that Congress will take away HRC Clearance to classified information right now while she is running for President– she is dangerous To our country as we have already seen

HILARY IS A RISK WE DO NOT NEED TO TAKE . THE TROTH NOTHING BUT THE TR0UTH . NOT IN MY JOB TITLE , SELF SERVING IS HER SPECIALTY

Will people get their heads on straight?? Hillary knew exactly what she was doing when she lied to the FBI. Hillary is the most incompetent woman to ever step foot inside the White House. Didn’t we have 8 years of Bill? You people are a gluten for punishment. Hillary is mentally incapable of telling the truth. She should have been locked in a mental hospital years ago. Oh, FYI, that Affordable Healthcare Bill that has been forced on America? Well, I worked for the Fed Gov and I know for fact, that Healthcare bill was Hillary’s. She tried to get it passed just before Bill finished his second term, but thank goodness the Congress had enough sense to refuse to pass it. But, along comes Obama. He takes her bill and calls it the Affordable Healthcare which is nothing but a scam. Why do you think it’s done nothing but created problems in the medical profession??

When you consider all the scandals that have followed the Clintons around since they arrived on the national scene and the number of scandals that have been added on an almost weekly basis, you begin to seriously wonder why they have been able to skate past all of them by merely blaming them on someone else and why their followers have continued to accept behavior from them that would be considered criminal coming from anyone else. Have we, the American public, reached such a low in our ethical and moral standards that the Clinton’s criminal activities just don’t matter? What is it about the Clintons that would inspire any type of loyalty from a true American? What have they really accomplished but to set a poor example for how to live an upstanding and honest life? They will do anything for money. Mr. Clinton will sexually abuse any woman he can and then lie about it while Mrs. Clinton will blame his behavior on the women he abused or a so-called “right wing conspiracy”. Several months ago, Mrs. Clinton stated that all women who have been raped or sexually abused have a right to be heard and believed. What a hypocritical statement to make after what she did to vilify every woman who came forward with disgusting story regarding her husband’s behavior. They always have an excuse for their bad behavior and many out there, regardless of the existing facts that prove the criminality of the Clintons, continue to wear the blinders and drool in ecstasy and genuflect in their presence. The Clintons also profess to be for equality for all, yet they pander to various ethnic, racial or gender groups with no intention of really bettering their lot in life. Back when Hillary was running in 2008, she gave a speech at an African-American church which was an excellent example of her pandering condescension. She slowed her speech pattern to a drawl, as if that was they way the people in the crowd would talk and let the congregation she wasn’t “in no ways tired”. If I had been in the congregation, I would have gotten up and left at that insult. I will conclude my diatribe with the following: What has Hillary ever done that would make her feel entitled to the position of president? And just being a woman doesn’t cut it.

Hillary will get away with it. Her supporters, the many starry eyed women voters committed to her, to making her their first female POTUS, no matter how battered an bruised her reputation, will look right past this ordeal, as will the rest of the Democrats who are scared to death of Trump and the Republicans getting in charge and picking the next SCOTUSes. Had she been charged and prosecuted for her actions, she wouldn’t have had a chance of ever becoming POTUS. But how could the FBI have ever seen their way clear to let her go? In rides Bill Clinton on his dark horse.

Bill Clinton’s meeting with AG Lynch was supposed to never have been caught. His purpose was to tell her, after meetings and manipulations of other people, that she could get away with not prosecuting Hillary by use of one of the Clinton’s favorite political word twists (remember – it depends what the definition of “is” is? .) that would let her and Hillary off the hook. Comey was not to say he would RECOMMEND “NOT PROSECUTING”. He would say he “WOULD NOT RECOMMEND” PROSECUTING. In other words, he did not make any recommendation at all !!! It was all left up to AG Lynch, who was shaking in her britches about how it would call into question her integrity and non-partisan judgment, if she just closed the case and let Hillary off, which Obama must have put immense pressure on her to do. Remember, she said that she would follow whatever the FBI and the Justice Department prosecutors RECOMMEND she do. So, they never actually recommended it, (they used a Bill Clinton twist of phraseology to make it appear as though they did) she just didn’t prosecute, and it makes it look like it was their recommendation she was following. No matter she appeared to be much more at ease after the secret meeting. She was given an out, and the press didn’t question it for a second. The media and the American people bought it, like they will continue to do when Hillary and her husband are in the White House again.

I wonder what the pressure was that Bill used, what kind of manipulation, and who else was involved in the plot that got at Comey? Obama refuses to discus the FBI, the decision, or AG Lynch. Who all signed a deal with the devil? Was Comey the victim of threats by the same people involved with Vince Foster and some of Bill’s Sex assault/rape victims who are to this day scared to death to come forward ?

Very well said John Kass, Every point he said is true. Either we shake off the criminal propaganda that this Dem/Lib has been giving us. and start fresh with clean air on our lungs . and not the filthy contaminated air that . we have been ingesting for the last 20yrs. We all have had enough of their filth. It is time to start new and get rid of all the blood sucking vampires in our gov. We ar awake GOV. and we are coming after the vermin up there. and we are going to clean house. Which one one wants to go first. One is McCain. Collins Reid, Pelosi, who else. that has been on the road to destroy us.????????????

There just too many in the USA who just don’t know enough about her. They must not watch the proper news on TV. I live in a retirement center and early many didn’t like Donald Trump. Over time I offered information they just didn’t know about. Many of the people living here are starting to understand what is now important for the USA and who will be the best new President. I see many of the polls and I believe many of them ask only the ones that will answer just as the want. I am beginning to see some people change what they once believed and are starting to understand how bad the USA people were treated over the last 7.5 years. I just pray they know what changes are needed to upgrade our government and what whey do that is good of all of us.

“Years from now, she may wander the corridors of whatever palace she finds herself in”
I have an idea, send her to ISIL as a “comfort girl”.
