The Hypocrisy of Hillary

I could not help but see the hypocrisy when I read a recent article in which Hillary Clinton voiced outrage at the way in which Donald Trump’s presidency is affecting “our democracy.” (

I have seen a more apt illustration of the old saying “When you point a finger at someone, you have three pointing back at you.” What Hillary Clinton said in her interview on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert, while speaking critically of #45:

Degrading the rule of law, delegitimizing our elections, attacking your favorite subject, truth and reason, spreading corruption, undermining our national unity… Each alone is a threat but you put it all together and it really is a crisis to who we are as a nation.

Indeed, it is. And more and more people are becoming woke to the truth about just how big the crisis we face is thanks, in part, to Ms. Clinton’s tireless efforts to dupe the world into believing she was an innocent bystander in the rigging of the 2016 Democratic presidential primary.

Yes, our democracy is “in crisis.” However, her well-documented collusion with the DNC and the billionaire-owned mainstream media during the 2015–16 Democratic presidential primaries in order to rig the primaries so that the Democratic nomination of the people’s choice would not win was also devastating to our democracy. This brings to mind her ill-fated memo that was leaked via a hacked email of hers in which she wrote to a major editor of a major mainstream media outlet that the mainstream media should “elevate” Trump as a “Pied Piper” who would lead the voters who were disaffected with the Democratic Party away to nowhere-land — and the mainstream media did just that, to the tune of $5 billion in free advertising for Trump. But Trump was supposed to be the loser, and Ms. Clinton the victor of the 2016 presidential election.

If we look further into history, we see that, under President Bill Clinton’s administration, the following acts also did devastating damage to our democracy:

Speaking of our democracy being in constitutional crisis, while Hillary Clinton “served” as a senator from New York, her votes to approve of going to war with Iraq based on lies and in support of passing the “Patriot” Act, based on lies, assisted the George W. administration to get us into a devastating and costly war with Iraq over nonexistent WMD and to strip away our constitutionally protected right to privacy. These two democracy destroying acts made the military-industrial complex extremely happy, while making the corrupt officials in the NSA, CIA, DHS, and FBI downright elated. The downside was, we the people lost many loved ones in the war in Iraq and welcomed home many more who were seriously wounded, and we lost our right to privacy — which is a fairly important right — as are all the rights listed in the first 10 Amendments to the U.S. Constitution that we call The Bill of Rights.

Further along, Ms. Clinton’s well-documented use of her position as Secretary of State to procure donations to her and Mr. Clinton’s family foundation in exchange for political favors, including the traitorous Uranium One deal with the Russians, was extremely destructive to our democracy, though these acts did help the Clintons in their greedy goal of joining the billionaire club.

One last note: it was obviously for the purpose of allowing Bill Clinton to “assist” Hillary Clinton in her job as Secretary of State that Ms. Clinton was willing to put our national security at risk thousands of times in order to perform her job — or rather, to allow Bill Clinton to perform her job — from their private server located in the basement of their home in Chappaqua, New York. Furthermore, there would have been yet another violation of our constitution if Hillary had been elected president in 2016; as her husband, Bill, would have been acting secretly and unofficially as the “co-president”: that of the 22nd Amendment, which restricts U.S. presidents to two terms or 10 years. This is all further proof that greed and power hunger turn men and women into absolute fiends.

Yes, our democracy, what tatters of it are left us, certainly does seem to be in a constitutional crisis. Newsflash: This time around — let’s say since the assassination of our President John F. Kennedy — in the cycle of American democracy/tyranny/democracy/tyranny, we have been in a constitutional crisis FOR SO MANY DECADES because of the greed, deceitfulness, and secrecy of so many of “our democratically elected government officials” such as Hillary Clinton. But, here’s a much more exciting and uplifting newsflash: We the People are working hard to fix our democracy, and we will reach the next big milestone in November by voting for people who are real progressives, real patriots, and real democrats.
