The Narrative Is Safe With Hillary

"Let’s be clear: Islam is not our adversary. Muslims are peaceful and tolerant people and have nothing whatsoever to do with terrorism."
Hillary Clinton

If muslims are peaceful and tolerant people then let us stop calling Muhammad a muslim.

We really need to read between the lines, especially when it is a Clinton speaking. Let's "amplify" and "clarify" her remarks:

"Let's be clear: Islam is not our [the Clintons] adversary. [Some of the biggest contributors to the Clinton Crime Family Foundation have been Muslim. Some of the biggest "donations" have been made for Slick Willie's "speeches" which were scheduled by the State Dept. during Hillary's tenure there. It was one of the biggest successes of her career. Name one Secretary who was ever as successful as her in collecting cash from Muslims.] Muslims are peaceful and tolerant people [who will tolerate any amount of corruption in the US government as long as the politicians who are bought and paid for remain bought and paid for] and [THOSE Muslims] have nothing whatsoever to do with terrorism."

No one ever said it better than Osama bin Laden: “When people see a strong horse and a weak horse, by nature they will like the strong horse.

Perhaps Hillary was confused, after all, bin Laden was one of those peaceful, non-terrorist Muslims. She apparently thinks that being a horse's arse is equivalent to being a "strong horse." Odor ain't everything.

Hillary's poll numbers are tanking faster and sooner in 2016 than they did in 2008 - against an aging old white guy who just happens to be the only openly avowed Socialist in the race.

Hillary Clinton’s national lead is slipping faster in 2016 than it did in 2008

Perhaps the Democrats are beginning to panic over what's coming in the immediate future for the Queen of the Clinton Crime Family.

Hillary's Problems Grow

Let's summarize:

150 FBI agents combing through all the records, the active involvement of the top FBI leadership, the mishandling of classified information in the emails AND the Clinton Crime Family Foundation corruption AND Obama hates the Clintons almost as much as he hates America: WOW! It might almost be enough to get an indictment out of Lackey Loretta Lynch before Queen Vagina the First is coronated.

I can only dream of seeing her in a bright orange jumpsuit, doing the perp walk into Hotel Fed.

Definitely living in "interesting" times!

I'd love to see a campaign between Bernie and the Donald, for the entertainment value alone. Now stocking up on popcorn.

If people vote for the Donald (against Sanders), they need to be put in a concentration camp. That guy is bad news.

Stan said...

Well, that's what the RINO establishment has been saying, trying to save their butts from extinction... which is what they sorely need.

It's good to hear the rich dudes complaining that "all their money doesn't count for anything these days - what is this country coming to??"

Frankly, the Donald warms my cockles. No more waiting for someone, anyone, to take on both the damnocrats and the Bush, as well as PC in the media and elsewhere.

In what way? I'm curious if it's a reason I haven't heard yet (and those range from "he's an anti-Semite" through "because" to "he's a Jew").

Steven Satak said...

JBsptfn: I suspect it's because The Donald can say the sorts of things The Bush can only dream of saying. The Bush still lives and operates in a world where what his opponents think and say about him still matters.

The Donald does not live in this world. He doesn't have to pay the slightest attention to what the Dems say, or even the Republicans, or any of the PC mavens. Nada. And so he's free to give the largely silent American majority what they really want to hear.

And what they want to hear is not always going to be pleasant to your ears or mine, but then, reality is often like that. Have you never wanted to avoid picking up the mail because you knew a bill was coming that you could not pay? This is much the same. The Donald is saying what most of us, on a gut level (but on others more rational as well) know to be true.

A lot of people don't want to hear it. Because they don't have a solution they are willing to put into action. Because for the past twenty years, everyone has been scrambling to live in a Seinfeld world, where they get to do the shittiest things to each other, but never ever appear to be the bad guy.

But The Donald just doesn't care.

The question in my mind is this: given The Donald's past performance and behaviors, (1) does he have the solutions?, (2) is he willing to use them against his erstwhile peers? and (3) is he telling us the truth about what he intends to do? We know he's telling us the truth, but what will he actually DO?

I don't trust him. But Ben Carson is not ready to be President and the RNC's bones are starting to show if the best they have to offer is Bush MkIII.

JBsptfn said...

I don't know. I hear rumblings about how Donald may go crazy and shut all social programs completely down or something (like Food Stamps, Welfare, etc...). I know that he can say things that the puppets can't, but I am wondering if he will be too radical.

Stan said...

And if Trump gets the nomination, you will hear all sorts of "trumped up" psychotic allegations of what he will or won't do. The alternative is that we all know what Republicans actually do, once elected: they cave in and cower in the presence of Democrat steamroller tactics. They fear the "backlash" if they actually act as non-Democrats. That is what the Republican Party Bosses are doing right now. They are scared stiff of anyone who actually represents the people as a priority over the Party of Cowardice.

Stan said...

An interesting thought: Republicans cannot convict an impeached Democrat president. But they could convict an impeached Republican, because the Democrats would pile onto that. I think Trump has much more tethering to Congress than Obama (who is absolutely rogue, with the approval of the congressional Democrats). I think that, alone, would temper his actions.

Further, congress would be able to override any vetoes of bills intended to restrain a rogue Republican president. The constitutional balance would actually exist... as it does not under a rogue Democrat president.

Xellos said...


First of all, do you hear it from rational people? Even in such a case, could they be saying it just for personal benefit, even something as small as a circlejerk on social media?

Lack of reasoning is also lack of validity.

I'm not particularly experienced in politics, but suggesting that Trump - or anyone - would just go full dictator is industrial grade bullshit. Either way, the worst thing he could do is: nothing.

A left-wing Christian apologist said similar things (I won't say who). There is also this person on Facebook (who is a moderate, and has a site on politics) that isn't too high on Trump (or Huckabee).
