Countdown to Hillary
Bad news travels fast. Hillary Clinton, the immortal, has entered the fray for the 2016 Democrat presidential nomination. http://www.politico.com/story/2015/04/hillary-clinton-2016-election-presidential-launch-116888.html The dust from Hillary’s last attempt has not fully settled into the shadows, yet her second run is fully underway. On this go around her focus is to connect with the common man. The latter is so comical one must partition reality from the factual insanity from which it is derived. Hillary has stepped away from the rarified domain in which she lives to give the appearance she cares about the “little people.” Her announcement came in the form of a website release not in a gathering of prospective voters. Her last news conference was a disaster. No one can blame her for staying miles away from the nearest journalist. Hillary will take her campaign on the road to small venues with pre-selected audiences. Her admirers will flood the media with positive attributions but those at a distance will question the very basis of her candidacy. With few competitors on the Democrat side vying for the nomination Mrs. Clinton appears to have a clear path to her goal. Yet the drum beats for more balance in her party and we may soon see others of note enter the political cauldron.
Hillary Clinton craves power, prestige and most of all money. During her tenure as Secretary of State many suspect she padded her own pockets via the Clinton Foundation. While representing American interests in the Middle East her Foundation took in large sums from countries less than friendly to the United States. Some believe a quid pro quo was involved. She had defended the work of the Foundation yet the stench of duplicity surrounds her and the private foundation that bears her name.
Equally as bad was Hillary’s management of emails during her reign as Secretary of State. Hillary, similar to Obama, believes she is above regulations and laws which govern the rest of us. When the Benghazi Committee requested her emails none were forthcoming. Why? She utilized a private computer server instead of one issued to her as Secretary of State. These recent revelations were made worse when it was discovered that her private server emails were erased. Hillary has refused to turn over this server. This controversy will not abate as the 2016 campaign moves forward. What is Hillary trying to hide?
With Hillary’s current attempts to galvanize support for a very iffy presidential campaign the public’s introspective eye will follow her everywhere. http://www.latimes.com/nation/politics/politicsnow/la-pn-hillary-clinton-campaign-iowa-2016-20150414-story.html The Clintons represent a time that has passed. Each of them is saddled with burdens decades old which haunts every appearance they make. Though Hillary has no real competition from potential Democrat rivals Martin O’Malley and Joseph Biden inspirational voices on the Republican side may drown hers out. The shock of Mrs. Clinton attempting to relate to the “common man” defines exactly who she is. She is a dispirited individual who will malign the system in any manner which brings her closer to the Oval Office. I believe she is misreading the political tea leaves. Her candidacy is doomed from the start because its foundations are layered with paper not cement. For an extremely intelligent woman she appears to move through life with blinders on. When the going gets tough she will abandon her presidential ambitions and return to presenting half-hearted speeches at $450,000 each. Until then her universe of one may end sooner than later for a presidential run that was never meant to be.

Who cries for the Benghazi Four
September 11th 2012 marked a milestone in the Administration of Barack Obama. On this night an American President aided and abetted enemies of the United States. Ambassador John Christopher Stevens and three others were murdered during two separate attacks on American installations in Benghazi Libya. Over 100 people took part in the first assault on the American Mission, killing Stevens and a fellow diplomat. Several hours later two security personnel were killed by a second wave of thugs in a nearby facility. President Obama and his surrogates, including Hillary Clinton, were well aware of the ongoing sieges, yet they sent no help. Worse, those who could have rescued these heroes of America were told to stand down. Days after these assaults the Obama Administration presented a series of lies to justify these atrocities. A film entitled the Innocence of Muslims was stated as the cause of these assaults in Libya and across the Arab World. Obama’s spin doctors took to the media stating a series of talking points to affirm the White House position which insisted these were spontaneous attacks. In short order the investigative journalists still employed uncovered the truth. These assaults were anything but spontaneous. Well-armed and well planned these attacks were months in the making. Since then Congressional committees have endeavored to root out the truth from the Administration on many fronts. Who ordered the stand down of our troops that night? Why did the State Department refuse to enhance security when they were aware of an imminent threat against American personnel and installations in Benghazi? Most importantly: Who prevented help from being sent when the White House knew the attacks were ongoing? Condemnation, after the fact, by the White House was too little and too late. Hillary Clinton, when probed concerning the State Department’s malfeasance before a Senate committee on this issue, in January of 2013, blurted out the now famous words. “What difference does it make.” The latter statement was in reference to whom initiated the attacks. Documentary requests by various Congressional committees have been stonewalled by Obama and his minions. Nineteen months ago a preventable tragedy occurred in Benghazi. From the perch of many President Obama saved the Muslim attackers by not sending help that fateful night. Worse the cover up continues as time from its occurrence melts away. Only the President knows why he did not react appropriately during the assault. We may never know. To answer the question who cries for the Benghazi four, with the exception of their families, no one.

Death by America: why no one is safe
America’s conciliatory posture around the World, even in the face of the most toxic situations, has had repercussions unforeseen even by the strongest wits in the Administration. Benghazi exemplifies America’s policy of noninterference, which in this case was caustic to 4 people in the service of this country. Transgression by dark forces around the World on American citizens and property were rare events when respectability of our nation was the norm. New norms have arisen which exclude any possibility of a hands off policy by the errant, who will act against the innocent, when they travel from this nation overseas. Disrespect for American culture and values have been on the increase for many decades. Attacks on our embassies in the 1990s culminated with the horrific tragedy on 9/11/ 2001. It is difficult to conceive yet blatantly true that our biggest enemy is not a terrorist from a 3rd World cesspool but our own government. Within the last several weeks White House minions have marched across the national stage, via Congressional hearings, each with more profound misrepresentations concerning the death of our Libyan ambassador than the last. President Obama’s crack team of incompetents were aware of the need for further protection by our people on the ground several months prior to the 9/11/2012 attack on our Benghazi Consult, yet nothing was done. Evidence indicates the day of the attack real-time images of well-arm mobs surrounding and attacking this facility were being viewed by State Department Officials. High ranking officials from the Administration have denied observing these images. Hillary Clinton, the former Secretary of State, appeared before both House and Senate investigating committees, a few days before her departure from the grasp of Uncle Sam. Her audacious denials of any knowledge of the events leading up to 9/11/2012 and the attack itself had a certain scent of dishonesty built into each one of her verbalizations. Worse, she would not say who told the military to stand-down as the attack was ongoing. The Administration’s chorus of liars’ messages to Congress and the American people are more profound than media sources have portrayed. This is the first Administration in modern history to abandon its own personnel while they were under attack. President Obama delicately sooths the egos of Middle Eastern extremists with hopes they will rethink their modus operandi. This fantasy will never move into reality. Instead his weak posture strengthens those who will do harm to Americans anywhere they may travel, because our enemies believe this nation will not retaliate against them. Obama’s diplomatic methods call for apologies to the dissolute for prior actions of this country not bullets for hurting our people. Americans are unsafe anywhere they travel, not from lack of strength, but lack of willpower to engage the aggressor on equal footing. Deaths of four in Libya are only the beginning of a long siege on Americans and their interests around the World. It is time for our politicians to act like leaders and put the World on notice, don’t mess with us or there will be severe consequences in return. Unfortunately, another presidential term must move into history before America’s backbone is once again seen.
