Posted on 01/04/2013 9:57:47 AM PST by Kaslin
Americans, Gallup tells us, admire Hillary Clinton more than any other woman in the world -- again. This latest accolade marks the 17th time Gallup has found Clinton to be the Most Admired Woman (MAW?) since she became first lady nearly 20 years ago. Only Eleanor Roosevelt (13 MAWs) comes close. Only Mother Teresa (1995 and 1996) and Laura Bush (2001) have interrupted Clinton's winning streak, and even then, Clinton came in second.
And therein lies America's cosmic flaw. A country that could time and again embrace Hillary Clinton as its MAW has lost its mind or its memory or both.
Does the phrase "congenital liar" tinkle any bells? I know such non-admirable sentiments are thought to be in the worst of taste, if not also banishable offenses. Still, as conjured by the late New York Times columnist William Safire in 1996, the phrase described the then-first lady for her shameless prevarications. These included what sure looked like bribery ("cattle futures"), defrauding taxpayers ("Whitewater"), obstructing justice -- or, rather, "finding" her Rose Law Firm billing records (under subpoena for two years) just days after the statute of limitations ran out -- among other corrupt behaviors that must have slightly suppressed Hillary-admiration that same year. The phrase remains apt.
"I remember landing under sniper fire," Clinton declared on the presidential campaign trail in 2008, describing a 1996 trip to Bosnia. "There was supposed to be some kind of a greeting ceremony at the airport, but instead we just ran with our heads down (chuckles) to get into the vehicles to get to our base." It was a vivid but debunkable whopper, as CBS footage of the event proved. In reality, Clinton, accompanied by daughter Chelsea, made her ceremonial way into Bosnia through a warm throng marked by smiling faces and a kiss from a local girl -- not bullets. Admirable?
On a more nationally significant level, Clinton recently supported President Obama's Big Lie that a movie trailer of "Innocence of Muslims" on YouTube "resulted" (her word) in the September attack on the U.S. compound in Benghazi, Libya -- a concerted falsehood for which neither Clinton nor Obama nor former CIA Director David Petraeus has yet answered. Even several days after intelligence agencies determined that a planned assault, not a video-driven protest, had taken place, Clinton went so far as to promise a grieving Charles Woods, father of slain former SEAL Tyrone Woods, that "we" were going to have the video maker "arrested and prosecuted."
Why was Clinton still perpetuating the false narrative that the exercise of free speech under the First Amendment, not Islamic jihad, had resulted in the attack? Was that admirable? Clinton has lately let it be known that she will voluntarily testify about Benghazi following her hospitalization for a blood clot, but I seriously doubt whether mere House members will risk asking this crucial question of the Most Admired Woman in America, especially now that she has risen from her sickbed. If they don't, they're not admirable, either.
Meanwhile, the video maker, Nakoula Basseley Nakoula, was indeed arrested and swiftly prosecuted, and is now serving one year in jail for "parole violations." His incarceration, however, is better understood as punishment for violating the Islamic ban on free speech about Islam. To be sure, one year is nothing compared to the death penalty an Egyptian court recently slapped on Nakoula and other Americans associated with the movie in absentia -- and without a peep of protest from the Obama administration, including Clinton.
The fact is, Hillary Clinton has worked assiduously with the Islamic bloc nations, known as the Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC), to promote Islamically correct speech codes through the so-called Istanbul Process. The goal of this process -- and the goal of transnational Islam -- is to implement Shariah speech codes via U.N. Human Rights Council Resolution 16/18, which seeks to criminalize "defamation" -- free speech -- about Islam. In leading this drive against free speech, Hillary Clinton is actually leading a drive against the First Amendment.
Most Americans don't know about the Istanbul Process, let alone how Islamic speech codes are unconstitutional, but it is this policy against free speech that may stand as Clinton's enduring legacy as secretary of state. It is of a piece with having presided over, first, the shredding of U.S. alliances with Egypt's Hosni Mubarak and Libya's Moammar Gadhafi and then supporting jihadist factions and organizations, such as the Muslim Brotherhood, now implementing Islamic law across the Middle East. This, of course, is President Obama's policy, but Hillary Clinton has been an active team player.
Another aspect of this same foreign policy Clinton has spearheaded is the launch of the Global Counterterrorism Forum. The forum's roster of 29 nations plus the European Union is stunning for its exclusion of Israel, a leading counterterrorism force as much as it is a leading terrorism victim. But not so, according to Islamic definitions. Knowingly or not, as a leader of this forum, one-third of whose members come from the Islamic bloc, Clinton has accepted the Arab League and OIC definitions of terrorism, which both deny the existence of Israeli victims (sometimes U.S. soldiers) and legitimize the terrorism of Hamas, a wing of the Muslim Brotherhood, and Hezbollah.
How could this be? What influences have led Clinton to formulate or follow such policies? We don't know, although it is hard not to wonder about the input of top Clinton aide Huma Abedin, a young woman with well-established familial and personal ties to Muslim Brotherhood figures and front groups (including a "charity" linked to al-Qaida and a group banned in Israel for ties to Hamas). Indeed, what may be most astounding and mysterious about Clinton's whole public tenure is how Abedin ever received the security clearance necessary to work so closely with the secretary of state.
Even broaching such a simple if burning national security question, as Rep. Michele Bachmann and others discovered last summer, is also a banishable offense. After all, Hillary Clinton is our MAW!
That's life. But it isn't admirable.
She deserves a 6x8 cell in a federal penitentiary.
A Democrat pol who lies??!!! Isn’t that as self-evident as the fact that ursine creatures use the great outdoors for digestive and defecatory functions?
Utterly incompetent, self-aggrandizing, fraudulent, thieving
liar who came to fame by staying with another one in her husband (of convenience). They are a trained pair of moscow hoods, converted to blatant greedy jackasses, who care nothing but for money and their “fame”. And, they are marked people, period.
He will die of STD, VD most likely (many signs of it)
She of a stroke or neurological seizure- and is without question mentally disabled.
A pair of narcissists, feeding on each other and us for too many years.
The ONLY partner of the Rose Law Firm to avoid prison by hiding the evidence in the White House.
You nailed it. Americans have such short memories and lack a moral compass. The high-pitched whirring sound you hear is Vince Foster spinning in his grave.
During the 2008 campaign, over 10 million people saw this clip of HILLARY! UNCENSORED. As of a few months ago, I think it was up to 20 million. Someday, if I actually can find the time and a publisher, perhaps I will finally write the book about the making of the video. Peter Paul has suffered greatly at the hands of Hillary for what we did. Because of Hillary’s influence, he is in a federal prison in El Paso and his family is suffering. Because the primaries were so close in many states, I believe that our film had a significant part in keeping her out of the White House. The video clip was pulled from YouTube showing it had over 20 million hits a few months ago, but here is another clip that was posted:
[[Hillary Clinton Doesn’t Deserve Americans’ Admiration]]
No but precisely because she doesn’t means that she iwll probably win if she runs becauise for soem reason this coutnry has lost it’s friggin mind- We got 8 years of the first lying clinton- and that was bad enough, but then along comes the ultimate LIAR in the current presidency and America votes him in AGHAIN? This country has lost it’s friggin mind- The worse you are apaprently, the more America will like you
No matter what they say, look at what they do. They are remarkably accomplished liars.
There are reports of soemthign liek 60 peopel ‘dtying’ around them- usuallty when htose peopel had soem kind of dirt on them- one even suppsoedly committed suicide by lopping off theiro wn head with a sword apparently- one couple was gunned down IN TRAFFIC by someoen on motorcycle (Hmmmm, random violence?) and lots others that look very suspiscious- Never indicted for ANY of the deaths- and evidences that these folks had mysteriously diussappeared or got burned in a ‘freak fire’- I have no way of knowing how much of this is treue, but even if only 1/10’th of it is true- these folks are disgusting CRIMINALS- and hte press did absolutely NOTHING to investigate and report on these things, but yet they jump all over rumors that romney ‘killed a cancer patient by suppsoedly personally denying her health care”? And they jumped all ovewr Sarah palin for her clothign costs durign hte campaign?
The MSM are them ost blatantly biased pweople on the face of hte earth aside from love3r boy and his ‘wife’
[[They are remarkably accomplished liars]]
I wouldn’t call htem remarkable abotu anythinjg- they coudl not get away with htweir lies deceit and murders if the msm didn’t allow them to by covering up ansd tempering with evidences etc- Everyoen knows they are lying, but for soem damn reason america does NOT care that they are liars and even reward them for beign liars and possible murderers- We live in a very sick time- America has lost it’s friggin mind- i keep sayign that don’t I?
I don’t know.
Why shouldn’t an incredibly stupid person have the admiration of incredibly stupid people?
Wah for Peter Paul,
Went to bed with whores, woke up with incurable STDs and contributed to infecting the nation.
My puny sympathy violin just got alot smaller.
And yet, half this ignorant country will vote for the lying skank and her perverted husband in 2016.
She also enabled/threatened/covered up for her serial rapist/assaulter-of-women of a husband. I’ll never forget Juanita Broderick’s description of her meeting Hillary....after Bill had raped her twice. The coldness, the unspoken but very clear threat......Hillary will burn in Hell, folks.
...I wanted her to be carried out at room temperature. (have mercy on me Dear God)...
Enduring Hillary and Willie Jeff for almost half of my life seems to be enough.
She coached her husband in perjury and obstruction of justice and was responsible for much of the pattern of lying which is accepted and that emenates from the Democratic party today.
I don’t believe one word that comes out of hillary’s mouth nor do I believe the word of anyone who is speaking for her and that includes any doctor or nurse. I don’t believe there was a virus, I don’t believe there was a concussion and I don’t believe there was a blood clot. This is all strategy to prevent her from testifying and to garner the “sympathy” vote from the stupid and uninformed come 2016.
What will it take for people to actually do what God says to do?
Make us a third world nation with tyranny and severe hardship? Or worse?
God forgive us and restore America to our former faith and dedication to thee, in Jesus name, amen.
Don’t forget her lie to Edmund Hilary, the first man to climb Mt. Everest that she was named after him.
Problem is, she was born before he climbed Everest and he was still an unknown and obscure New Zealand beekeeper.
Why she had to make up that lie on the spot is a mystery, but a pathological liar cannot help him/herself.
