You have to go all the way back to mid-1970s Arkansas (particularly to the airstrip in Mena, AK) to uncover the first indications that the Clintons are the original “how to make money off the people” political couple. They are the crooks of the big government world and are not one bit ashamed of it since they are clearly the smartest people on the planet (in their own minds). Neither of them were/are fit to be president.
The debate is over. The Clintons are America’s number one political crime family. Anyone thinking differently is simply a Clinton denier. The political science is settled. The world’s foremost conservative thinkers, scholars and political scientists all agree. Plus, it is the seriousness of the charge that matters. I repeat, the debate is over. See how easy it is?
The complicit Clintonista-lying-mouthpiece Lanny Davis, was all over Fox News Sunday and the rest of the networks the other day. He’s one of those chaps who believe that the faster and louder you speak the more people will believe you are telling the truth. As for the Billarys, it’s time to face the music. If your Clinton Foundation is as pure as the driven snow then there should be no problem defending it (and yourselves) against the charges made by Mr. Schweizer. If you’re the Democrat nominee for POTUS you’re going to have to answer some very uncomfortable (for you) questions anyway, so you might just as well get used to it. Even liars have to practice to perfect their craft.
Do mob bosses have press conferences to prove their accusers wrong? Of course not. Never volunteer to put yourself on the witness stand. The Clintons know that they are innocent until proven guilty. Between a corrupt DOJ, a feckless Congress, and a destroyed email(.)server they know little will(.)happen to them. Makes you wonder how many more records from the Clinton Foundation are being removed to a more secure location as this drama plays out.
Poor Hillary, if she had just saved all of those emails; I’m sure they would have provided everything she needed to prove her innocence.
A piece from Silvio Canto, Jr., from today’s American Thinker provides the editorial “wrap-around” to an interesting video report from the guys and gals at Western Journalism since both reports are focused on the same topic – the criminality and corruption of the Clintons and the rogue fraud “president” of a hundred names, nationalities, SSI cards, and other anti-Constitutional criminal acts.
So here is my challenge to the Clintons: prove him wrong! Prove that his story is wrong.
Hold a press conference, answer questions, and let your lawyers tear up the book.
I agree with Mike Lupica:
“If this book is nothing more than another smear by a member of the bullhorn right, nothing more than a hatchet job by a former flunky for the George W. Bush administration — and, boy, is that some job reference — then it isn’t Bill Clinton’s job to call out the author, nor a job for members of Hillary Clinton’s staff. If this is all a lie then she is the one who has to go right at Schweizer, whether she helps sell his book for him or not.
This isn’t about the risks of dignifying a smear by addressing it. We’re way past that, because of the coverage “Clinton Cash” is getting from legitimate media. This is about correcting the record about foreign money that has flowed into the Clinton Foundation, starting with the $2.35 million donated to the foundation by some rich Canadian mining entrepreneurs at the same time they were selling a uranium company to a state-owned Russian nuclear energy company.
It was a deal, by the way, on which the federal government, which includes the State Department, had to sign off. On top of that there was no disclosure about this money from Bill Clinton’s foundation, which means the people in charge were negligent or sloppy or both, opening themselves to at least the suggestion from such as Schweizer that this was some backdoor shakedown.
So let’s get started. The Clintons owe that to the Democrats!”
My guess is that the Clintons’ game will continue.
First, they will send Lanny Davis to Fox News to say that there is nothing wrong with anything.
Second, they will send James Carville to MSNBC. Carville will entertain the hosts, and the two people watching the network, with some Southern slang and more about “right-wing talking points.”
Third, they will try to destroy the author rather than challenge the contents of the book, as Josh Green said.
Fourth, going after the author probably won’t work this time, as Eleanor Clift wrote.
We have seen this movie before …
The big difference is that we had 4% unemployment when they went after Monica Lewinski in 1998. Frankly, most of the country was too busy making money to care. And most people thought it was about inappropriate behavior with a young woman.
It’s different now, especially since Hillary Clinton’s foreign policy is a mess and there are millions of dollars going into the family pockets.
This is not going away, because the Clintons are either blatantly careless or just corrupt.
Nevertheless, I will be happy to hear the Clinton defense, especially if Mrs. Clinton decides to speak about the issue. Let the debate start!
Schweizer and Clintongate scandal .. indeed.
