Politicians like to say that they are “serving” the people that elect them. But it’s never about their desire to serve. It’s about their ego. Making a name for themselves and a legacy that will last long after they are gone.
We all know this and complain about it and it will likely never change. Their first priority is themselves and if it happens to work out good for the people they represent it just turns into a coincidence that they can use to get themselves elected again next time around. Honesty is never a consideration.
We are now getting two more examples thrown in our faces again and likely to have it thrown at us several more times over the coming months by an old hand at this deception. Hillary Clinton.
The first example, also includes President Barack Obama. On September 11, 2012, Hillary Clinton, then Secretary of State received a telephone call from President Obama.
She received a call from Obama at 10:00 that night. She already knew that the Ambassador to Libya, Christopher Stevens, had been killed and a communications operator was also dead. She also knew it was a coordinated terrorist attack. Since it happened on the 11th anniversary of the attack on this country, September 11, 2001, it wasn’t hard to figure out.
Obama had been campaigning and repeating in his speeches that al queda was on the run and Osama bin Laden was no more. Al queda is on the path to defeat, and various other lines with that theme.
But the night of the attack in Benghazi, Obama placed a call to Hillary and told her that he wanted her to come out and say that it was a spontaneous demonstration due to a video berating the Prophet Muhammad.
To Hillary’s credit, she apparently told the President that the story wouldn’t be credible especially since this was happening on the anniversary of the 2001 attack. Obama stuck to his plan and said he needed her to come out with that story. With just a few weeks to go to the election it was important that that be the story.
Hillary called her husband and apparently he was surprised that was the story the President was going to use, but then again, he wasn’t because Obama doesn’t want any terrorist attacks being on his watch. Bill Clinton and Hillary considered Hillary resigning as Secretary of State.
But they decided against Hillary resigning. Not because she could clean up the mess when it blew up in the Presidents face. Not to come up with some reasoning for an inaccurate story being put out.
The reason she didn’t resign was because if she did, and it hurt Obama in the election a few weeks later, the Democrats would hold it against her and it would hurt her chances to run in 2016. The truth was not an option for her because it could hurt Obama’s chances for re-election in November, and hurt her chances in 2016.
The second example of Hillary making decisions based on what she wants rather than what’s best for the country has to do with her health.
Hillary has had a problem with fainting spells. More than we were aware in the past. One of those falls, she broke an elbow. The fainting spell she had that led to her being away from her office for an extended period was apparently worse than the American people were told. This happened in December 2012. We were told she fell at home. Now it’s said she actually fainted in her office in Washington D.C. She went to the hospital and when Bill Clinton showed up, he had her moved to a hospital in New York.
Hillary gets blood clots and this one apparently was between her brain and skull. Clotting in the brain can lead to strokes according to doctors.
She was also found to have a thyroid condition according to sources and her fainting spells also was an indication of a heart condition. Following these tests in the hospital before they released her, they apparently told Bill Clinton that she will have to be monitored closely for the rest of her life.
These revelations are written in the new book coming out called “Blood Feud” by Edward Klein. The Benghazi information can be found in the NY Post. http://nypost.com/2014/06/22/clinton-bristled-at-benghazi-deception-book/
Should Hillary run for President in 2016, and get the nomination, the most important part of her campaign following the nomination will not be what she will do during her Presidency if she were to win, but it will be whom she chooses as her Vice President.
The right thing would be for her not to run for President, but since what’s right for the American people is never a consideration, the American people should place much more importance on her choice for a running mate because if Hillary is elected and these stories are right, that VP could become the next President in very short order.
Lest you think that I’m only thinking of Democrats as running for dishonest reasons, consider this. The Republicans are just as guilty in their actions and intentions as the Democrats.
There are many reasons that are viable for impeachment proceedings to begin against Obama. But Republicans in the House, where it should start, won’t go near it because they think it will make them look bad to the American people and they might lose their next election if they start moving towards impeachment. Their JOB, their RESPONSIBILITY is to the country, not their own re-elections or personal approvals. I find it very hard to trust a politician that puts his re-election above doing the job they are responsible for doing.
