Loose lips sink ships!
The catch phrase of war time secrecy should sound familiar to most. It was the watch word as the United States and its Allies built armies and war material such as ships, airplanes and tanks to be used for combating Nazi Germany and the Japanese Empire. It was a time when great armies of evil, arrogance and intolerance dominated whole continents and had aims of conquering the world. They were very dangerous times for Free people everywhere.
In modern day America, no entity better personifies the need to reintroduce the phrase ’loose lips sink ships’ more than the Clinton political apparatus. Over the years, through scandal after scandal, the principals have been able to persevere and prosper. Aided by a fawning press and the support many politically active groups such as the NAACP, Women’s Rights groups, Unions, LGBT Coalitions and many more, they have held onto their power and influence through it all by keeping the egregious acts secret.
Not that there have not been bumps in the road, from bimbo eruptions with Bill Clinton, to Hillary’s dubious investments, questionable billing records, travelgate and many others. Hillary has not needed a vast right wing conspiracy designed to scuttle all things Clinton, she would have done it herself without help from many quarters over the years.
I guess when a country an unquestioned super power, it can get away with frivolous, even damaging behavior from leaders and still maintain the safety of its population.
‘America First’ has to be our battle cry
No longer can we accept bad actors like Hillary Clinton.
Hillary Clinton has always tip-toed close to the edge of the abyss of the nefarious as she pursued her personal gains and political achievements. The political Left cheered her achievements while the Right grudgingly accepted, barring prosecution, her progression. I’m sure most will agree however, the absence of a prosecution does not translate to activities that are either legal or right. If you have no shame, the bar on what is right can be very low.
However, the world has become increasingly more dangerous since the days of the mujahedeen in Afghanistan, the missed opportunities to kill Bin Laden in the 90’s and the destruction of aspirin factories inspired by Monica’s blue dress.
America’s apologetic retreat on the world stage lead by President Obama has weakened the United State’s influence in all corners of the world with friend and foe alike. The trajectory of the United States under Obama’s hand has steadily emboldened Russia (see their bombers flying west coast sorties), China (claiming and building islands in the South China Sea) and militant Islam (now issuing threats from a self-proclaimed Caliphate instead of caves in Pakistan).
Hillary Is Over The Edge
Hillary, as Secretary of State, has shown her personal progress is more important to her than the welfare other Americans. We may never know whether the Benghazi affair was a dereliction of duty, incompetence or gross negligence. Leaving an Ambassador hung out to dry should be a red flag for our entire country. After all, if protecting our Ambassadors in a foreign land isn’t a priority, what is?
Then, following that fateful night with continued half truths, lies and cover ups, all aimed to protect her and the President during an election campaign, is shameful. Then, Clinton and the President have shown they know no shame.
Anticipating Skirting The Law
The manner in which Clinton has handled emails was more like a small time petty politician than a responsible appointed official at the highest level. In fact, because official government business was on the server she has attempted to wipe clean, she has destroyed “the peoples” records, not “her” records.
People on the Left and the Right should be outraged. I mean, what the hell? Who are you, Hillary Clinton, to destroy evidence in a congressional investigation? We, as a people have to demand better accountability from elected and/or appointed officials.
At the very least she is negligent. But because of stalling maneuvers and the forethought dedicated to deleting records and wiping the mail server clean, can there really be any plausible doubt about how disingenuous Clinton is?
Hillary, and actors like her, are a cancer on the American body politic. Even the manner in which donations were received by the Clinton Family Foundation feels like influence peddling.
Her authenticity and honesty, or lack thereof, has been questioned by many for a long time. Fortunately, she has been the ‘second banana’ in most circumstances, so her lack of honesty has not had a major impact – YET! As a decision maker, she could be dangerous because now she is most likely compromised.
It’s pretty obvious her personal goals are more important than America’s.
Putting her in a position to letdown 300 million Americans is not a wise move.
Yes, an extremely partisan person that is obviously dishonest and in a position of real consequence, is an unsettling thought. But we have been able to deal with that since 2009. An individual that is also compromised is just plain scary. But the bumbling manner is which this recent email scandal has evolved also shows incompetence in addition to dishonesty. Do we, as a Country really want to consider that after the past seven years?
Hillary Clinton and public “servants” like her are bad for America.
Loose lips sink ships. Let be sure only Hillary’s ship sinks – not America’s. Because, for those of us who love America and its exceptional culture, yes Hillary, being dedicated to America first, it does make a difference.
