As a non-American, I do not know whether to laugh or cry . There is NOTHING about Hillary that I like, am inspired by, or that are worthy of consideration. She literally has NO good points. I consider her a criminal.
I mean at present and even with Benghazi still casting its shadow over her, there is the Clinton Cash scandal with her Clinton foundation and the apparent collusion with the DNC to commit election fraud.
Now Director Comey has let her off the hook a week after the Attorney-General and her husband had a secret meeting. The fix is in.
BUT there is something that strikes me as strange. Director Comey told us ALL the things she did wrong and phrased it in such a way that there is NO doubt she IS guilty and yet. No conviction.
- He concluded Hillary was “extremely careless” in handling our nation’s secrets.
- He admitted no reasonable person could have believed putting these emails on a private server was at all appropriate or acceptable.
- He admitted 110 emails on the server were classified at the time they were sent — showing Hillary not only lied, but knowingly endangered national security as secretary of state.
- He admitted Hillary deleted work-related emails before turning them over to the State Department, despite her claims otherwise.
- And, most shocking, Mr. Comey even admitted it’s likely foreign governments hacked her emails — and our adversaries could know critical secrets about the U.S. government because of Hillary’s actions.
YET she got off.
We have to question why he went to those lengths to point out her “criminality” and untrustworthiness. I believe he was controlled by forces outside of himself that prevented him from convicting. Maybe it was a real threat or an understanding that he would be ruined if he had submitted to Loretta Lynch a recommendation for an indictment. But if that is that case, he did the next best thing he could do and offer an honest account as to how bad she did and how righteous the investigation was. He was treated very badly, as was his staff and I think he was played up to the last. Though the decision to indict her was taken off the table, he was going to let everything else spill.
Why? Because fuck her. She gets her way, but the public gets to know how crappy she was when in a position of trust. They will know she lies, obstructs justice, is untrustworthy and her ability to put America at risk in her want for personal convenience.
He has allowed Americans to see that IF he cannot indict her for America, that maybe he can at least let Americans know the truth. That is she is not fit for government. She is untrustworthy, lying, and places herself above her country.
I hope the long term effect of this is to drop her another 5-10 points in the polls. She deserves it.
I hope she loses. I hope she loses badly.
Furthermore I hope that her expectation of consolidating the Democratic Party vote is dashed. I hope the Sanderites refuse to vote for her and instead vote for Jill Stein of the Green party (a very Progressive Party). It will mean that Hillary will go down.
It would mean that Trump would win BUT it would also be the splitting of the Democratic Party and an establishing of a new political order of three viable parties. The Moderate Liberals, The Republicans and The Progressives. THIS is something I ultimately think is good. A large enough green vote would mean that Sanders and his ideas would be able to at least be bought to the table. Instead of being dismissed by a rigged system where he has no input, Jill and Bernie would be able to be courted a little by the other parties.
I think there is a place for Progressive values. I think that they ought to have a voice. I do think that seeking to act as not only an alternative to the two parties BUT as a policy backer and policy pusher and policy negotiator is where a lot of strength is. Even if The Green Party did not get high enough numbers to threaten either party in the poll, as long as the numbers were high enough they could be seen as someone to negotiate with first before pushing forward with policies or to compromise with.
It would keep both parties honest. They would fight the fights worth fighting and concede on the smaller battles. It would also mean that the Green Party would be not subject to domination or dismissed by the Democratic Party.
This is my thoughts only. Let me know what you think.
