Because Hillary and Churchill, they’re exactly the same, right?
If it were Bill, you might at least be able to make a cigar reference, but Hillary?
Hillary sat for an interview with yet another foreign news outlet — this time, the Guardian — and used it to push her agenda.
So much for that tradition of having politics stop at the ocean. Hillary is throwing mud at American policy from across the Atlantic.
She’s hammering Trump over the same policy that was happening under Obama while she was part of his administration. Did we hear any outrage then? No.
But now that there’s time to ‘Resist’ Trump, she’s using British outlets to brag about her role in whipping up the frenzy against him. Historical or legal context be damned.
She — PERSONALLY — has used this issue to raise $1.5 Million for activists. No, wait, she said it differently: to “flood the border with lawyers, interpreters, experienced social workers, psychologists”.
Here is the conversation she’s having on foreign soil:
She tells me she has raised $1.5m in the days before we meet, to “flood the border with lawyers, interpreters, experienced social workers, psychologists. We just have to get as much expertise down there to force the federal government to give us everything.” It’s the kind of resource-focused, pragmatic response we would expect from someone with a reputation for technocratic efficiency, so I’m a bit taken aback to see tears fill her eyes. When the MSNBC anchor Rachel Maddow broke down and wept on air while reporting plans to build “tender age” detention facilities for infants, “didn’t that make you cry?” Clinton challenges me. “Well, I felt exactly the same way.” Dabbing her eyes, she lets rip.
“I mean, you just … who thinks like that? Who does these things? How can anybody look in the mirror? How can they actually live with themselves? If you heard about it in some third-world banana republic, you’d say: ‘That’s horrible! Stop it! Who would do that?’ Now it’s happening in our country, and it’s just so distressing. I think a lot of us keep waiting for the bottom – and it just seems to be bottomless.”
She’s dishonest, and will gladly put America in a bad light on the world stage if it will advance her cause. We see it again, later in the interview:
Before Trump signed his executive order, there were calls in the UK for the prime minister, Theresa May, to cancel his forthcoming visit until the policy was rescinded. “Until the children are reunited,” Clinton mutters under her breath. Her expression suggests she regrets the interjection as soon as I ask her to repeat it. “I’m not going to speak for your government,” she corrects herself hastily. “You guys have to make your own decision. But this administration should be working 24/7 to reunite those kids. And if they aren’t, yes, there should be consequences. But I’m not going to comment on what you guys should do. That’s up to you.”
After taking a swipe at Melania for ‘the jacket’, the Churchill reference came up.
She’s asked about whether she has any moral high ground to be calling American politics ‘polarizing’ since she herself is considered a ‘polarizing figure’.
Has she ever considered the possibility that her most effective contribution to healing the country’s divisions would be to withdraw from public life?
“I’m sure they said that about Churchill between the wars, didn’t they?” she flashes back sharply, a fraction too quickly for the line to sound spontaneous. “I mean, I’m not comparing myself, but I’m just saying people said that, but he was right about Hitler, and a lot of people in England were wrong. And Churchill was a pain. He kept popping up all the time.” Besides, she goes on, “I love what I do and I care about a lot of things, so I’m very interested in what people are doing to try to figure stuff out and solve problems. So it’s not really work to me. No, it doesn’t feel like work.”
Churchill was a great leader. He was loaded with wit. Intelligent. Aware of threats to the nation, and he unswervingly took them seriously.
Hillary ran a home-brew server on which Classified Information was stored. It was accessed by foreign actors at least once.
What Hillary would NOT do is stand up and declare just who and what the gathering threats on the borders are. Which foreign powers were leveling what threats against national interests.
Churchill stood up and enumerated the weapons of war being built by Hitler. He spoke frankly about the Soviet threat. He even said a thing or two about the nature of Islam, and how incompatible it is with Western Ideals of freedom, industry and equality.
Exactly WHICH of these qualities would Hillary ‘Open Borders’ Clinton say she shares with the British Bulldog? Isn’t the real reason she pulled back on that, becuase she realizes how far Winston Churchill’s legacy TOWERS above her own?
It’s time to Drain The Swamp! Which happens to be the title of this newly-released fine piece of art:
