‘Everything she has touched has been a disaster.’
[By Joseph Farah, July 8, 2016]
I got a Hillary Clinton fundraising letter from Joe Biden.
“I’ve known Hillary for a long time – from the time she was First Lady, Senator from New York, and our Secretary of State,” he writes. “She is a force of nature. She’s tough, she’s brilliant, and she genuinely loves serving this country. Hillary is the kind of person who, at the end of the day, wants to help people and make their lives better. That’s who you want as your president.”
“A force of nature”? Is that why she is exempt from the criminal laws of the land?
Of course she loves “serving this country.” It’s been an amazingly lucrative venture for both she and her husband. But this is not supposed to be what “public service” in America is all about.
Actually, when you think about “forces of nature,” it may be a pretty good analogy. Think of hurricanes, typhoons, earthquakes, tsunamis. Those natural acts of destruction have something in common with what Hillary has wrought on this country in her years as a “first lady,” senator and secretary of state.
Literally everything she has touched has been a disaster – from her effort toward a government takeover of health care as “co-president” in the 1990s to her undistinguished years as a carpet-bagging senator from New York to her criminal shakedown of foreign and banking interests for personal financial gain as secretary of state.
And that doesn’t even take into account her Middle East policy that resulted in the worst refugee crisis since World War II, the torture-murder of Ambassador Chris Stephens, the deaths of several other Americans in Benghazi after she abandoned them and the unchecked rise of ISIS.
Few natural disasters have proven as destructive as Hillary Clinton’s “leadership.”
But, understand, she is all the Democrats have. They’ve already decided she will be, as Biden’s email states, “a terrific president.”
They have nowhere else to turn. You know and I know Biden is kicking himself for not getting into the race when he had the chance, though he’s as much a disgrace as Hillary.
She’s the only game in town for the Democrats. They have no choice but to characterize her as a political savior – even though she has no accomplishments to her name.
But for Democratic Party leaders, the alternative is too brutal to even consider. Biden tells us that, too, in no uncertain terms. All his glowing accolades, he writes, are “especially true when your other option is Donald Trump.”
“Donald Trump’s politics of fear and intolerance have no place in America,” he writes. “He won’t solve our problems – he’ll make them worse. Because let me tell you: denigrating our allies isn’t a foreign policy. Telling the world the United States can’t be counted on to pay our debts isn’t an economic policy. And attacking the ethnicity of a federal judge violates everything we stand for – and believe – as Americans.”
Notice not even Biden can name one accomplishment of Hillary Clinton. Hillary has been kicking around Washington for all these years and she can’t honestly tell you about anything she has accomplished, and none of her supporters can either. Instead, they are left to attack Donald Trump who has never been part of the Washington elite.
For the Democratic leadership, all they can do is fear-monger about Trump:
“I’ve always believed this nation succeeds best when we come together as one America. But everything about Donald Trump’s campaign is determined to divide and pull us apart,” write Biden.
Obama, as president, can’t even open his mouth without peddling venom about Trump. One sage journalist suggested, “Trump is living rent-free inside Obama’s head.”
Don’t believe the Democratic leaders’ lies of omission about Hillary. And don’t believe the Democratic leaders’ lies of commission about Trump.
