Posted on 08/13/2016 8:51:55 PM PDT by poconopundit
"Crooked" is a label that aptly fits Hillary Clinton, but the FBI and WikiLeaks revelations regarding Hillary's private email server and 33,000 deleted emails points to another apt label for Hillary: reckless.
Hillary's foreign policy mistakes -- even traitorist activity -- in the Middle East are "reckless" in two senses, for they show: 1) a careless lack of attention to detail, and 2) a coldness or lack of caring about what happens to the people her actions affect and even our Nation.
Trump and his team are doing a fantastic job of exposing Hillary's and Obama's reckless and misguided strategy in the Arabian or Middle Eastern World. I'm simply going to reiterate those points and add some perspective.
The Barbary Pirates of Tripoli
America has actually been fighting in the Middle East since the birth of the Nation. In the late 18th century, American ships bound to Italy and other Mediterranean ports were routinely seized and plundered by the Barbary Pirates who sailed out of Tripoli, Libya.
Even back then, America was highly reliant on trade with the Old World, and since we lacked a Navy to defend our merchant ships, the only recourse we had was to pay outrageous ransom fees to the Pirates to guarantee safety of the cargos and crews.
Now the merchant shipping of Great Britain and France were protected from the Pirates because of their formidable naval fleets. But for America, the Barbary Pirate problem festered for years until President Thomas Jefferson finally pushed through funding to build a Navy and Marine Corps.
The heroism of the American Navy and Marines in that day is exemplified by the young naval commander Stephen Decatur. His fascinating naval career is equal to or better than that of John Paul Jones.
Legend and lore also say the Marine nickname, "leatherneck" was derived from leather neckbands worn in Barbary Wars to protect Marines from the slash of the Barbary Pirate cutlass on the Shores of Tripoli.
The below GIMP image merges some famous artwork showing Stephen Decatur's battles in Tripoli with a mashup of Hillary Clinton and the octopus face of Davy Jones from Pirates of the Caribbean.
A Great Statesman in Her Own Mind
You can be sure that Hillary imagines herself as an exemplary diplomat and power broker.
Look at the photo below. Hillary seems to be proud of wearing a Muslim veil, and in the picture you almost sense that Obama and Valerie Jarret are embarrassed by Hillary's proud gestures.
But the truth is that Obama, Jarrett and Hillary were huge bunglers in the Middle East. They supported the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt and took the rebel side in the so-called Arab Spring -- a movement that backfired. The Muslim Brotherhood began burning Christian churches across Egypt to the point where they were quickly overthrown by the Egyptian military.
The Faux "Warrior" Laughs at the Death of Gaddafi
When Julius Caesar wrote in his history of the Gallic Wars history Veni, Vidi, Vici, we can forgive his hubris because he was indeed a great general. And at certain critical points in the Gallic Wars, he had personally put himself in great danger when he fought on the front lines to rally his soldiers.
Hillary, on the other hand, showed no shame or prudence in bragging about the death of Gaddafi saying "We came, we saw, he DIED" and then despicably laughing about it on public television. In doing so, she basically spat upon the warrior's code of chivalry and honor.
Then Libya was Sent into Terrorism & Chaos
We can only imagine the disappointment Hillary felt after Gaddafi was overthrown and utter lawlessness prevailed in the country. Even today, many years after Gaddafi was murdered, ISIS and other radical groups are still wrestling for control of the country and no central government really exists.
Libya was supposed to "prove" Hillary's foreign affairs finesse -- she thought it was her ticket to the White House.
But then along came the attack on the Benghazi. After repeated cries for help, way before and during the attack, Hillary failed to respond and some brave American including an ambassador died because of her inaction.
And to further dishonor our heroes, Hillary concocted a ridiculous story about a video having caused the Benghazi attack in protest -- a story we later found out she knew to be false because an email she sent to her daughter denied any protest took place.
And now, the WikiLeaks emails are beginning to show that Hillary and Obama had much to hide in Libya, namely a gun running operation that was supplying arms to Al-Qaeda, ISIS, and the rebels in Syria.
The Iranian Nuclear Deal and Hostage Ransom
If Thomas Jefferson was alive today, he'd be appalled that America is still paying ransom to our adversaries in the Middle East.
Not only was the Iran Nuclear Deal not properly negotiated, we learned very recently that $400 million was secretly money laundered and paid to the Iranians in exchange for returning American hostages.
Obama denies it, but the secrecy of this arrangement proves Obama knew that if word leaked out about it, it would cause he and Hillary some major political headaches -- which it has.
The Clinton Foundation's Traitorous Pay-to-Play Games
Last but not least is Hillary's utter corruption through the Clinton Foundation.
While the public is just now beginning to understand the true nature of this complex Foundation that operates out of Canada and masks as "helping the poor" but actually enriched the Clintons at the expense of our national interests by playing off Hillary's powerful role as Secretary of State.
Wikileaks releases, whistle-blowers, and fresh government investigations will no doubt give us greater detail on the Clinton Foundation in the weeks and months ahead.
Reckless, corrupt, stupid, deceitful, and traitorous. Hillary and her accomplices are not only the Pirates of the Arabian world, they have severely damaged America's foreign policy and threatened our national security.
Lock 'em up!
What did you mean for the title to be? It appears to have a typographic glitch.
Well, certainly not in the looks department, but in the "reckless" category? You bet!
Yeah, I used the HTML symbol for an ampersand when I should have just put in an ampersand.
It would be great if somebody could change that, though I personally don't know a way to correct something posted.
to get out in front of this we need to start contemplating the awful possibility that..
HILLARY IS A MUSLIM.
Is it really plausible she could all these years share the bed with Huma without being effected AT ALL..?
Not certain, but a possibility..?
Her loyalty is probably stronger to Muslims in the Middle East than to Americans in the USA.
This woman is totally lawless. She's an outlaw and criminal who cares nothing for anybody but herself and her small circle of sycophants.
Hit the “Abuse” button and tell the Admin Moderator that you are the author, and ask for them to correct it. Sometimes they will.
One thing for certain, it is not ‘appearance’ or age. The similarities might be the two are of the ‘me generation’ whereby they place themselves on a pedestal above all others.
What on earth is BO’B doing with his tongue out like that. A bad taste in his mouth? Regurgitating? Comparing tongue holes with Bill’s Hill?
I think you are certainly correct about where her sympathies lie in the world conflict. However, I don’t think she can limit her self interest to any strict moral code.
Her paid sympathies I should have said. The “For Sale” sign is clearly seen.
Trying to prevent neck wrinkles? :-)
Based on what we are learning about the Clinton and Obama role in supporting terrorism and their long standing relationships with the foreign interests such as Saudi Arabia, Qatar, UAE , Ideological agenda driven transnational Billionaires such a George Soros, the international Socialist/Anarchist Movement and international terrorists like the Yasser Arafat PLO and Muslim Brotherhood the Clintons played a very active role in the rise of Islamic terror and the world wide Jihad.
We have always dismissed it as Clinton Administration foreign policy incompetence, but in retrospect it seems the played a more active and willfully intentional role in kick starting the world wide Islamic revolution.
Have long believed that she made a profession to that faith in exchange for their support. Have long believed that was the reason for the UGLY burka coats (although they may be just there to hide an iv drip or other medical equipment. It would have sealed her relationship to White Mosque. It would explain her placing Saddique Mateen behind her in Orlando. It would explain the heavy support from Saudis and other Muslims, and her pro-Muslim policy bias.
She is at best a dhimmi, bought and paid for.
LOL! LOL! :-)
A snake, doing what a snake does, ABOUT TO STRIKE!
“Take me in oh tender woman, Take me in for Heaven’s sake”
Another comparison that has become pretty well fixed in my thinking: Ahab and Jezebel.
Do you remember Ahab and Jezebel? See 1 Kings 16-21 and 2 Kings 9 in the Bible.
Well Bill Clinton is wicked and corrupt Ahab and his wife Hillary, worse than he is, is corrupt, hateful, and deadly Jezebel.
I think if one had the time and the resources, an allegorical movie could be done titled “Ahab and Jezebel” about Bill and Hillary paralleling their lies, corruption, and deadly devices of Biblical proportions.
But it took an Elijah to bring Ahab and Jezebel to justice.
Actually Elijah ran for his life when Jezebel vowed to kill him and he was gone for years. Other forces came along that brought an end to her.
It's number one on Amazon now.
I think “Jezebel” is a good, descriptive name for her.
