With the presidential election quickly approaching, I felt compelled to right this piece about Hillary Clinton. The line I hear over and over is “well, I dont really like her, but we definetely cant allow Donald Trump to be president.” While I have already made my disdain for Trump’s authoritarianism clear in an earlier blog post, make no mistake that a Hillary Clinton presidency would be just as dangerous. While different in flavor and expression, Hillary Clinton’s vision of America similarly proceeds from a belief in her righteousness and untrammeled power and is similarly unbounded by constitutional limitations or pragmatic reality. In a country where 60 percent of us already believe the federal government has too much power, Clinton’s approach is misguided, to say the least, and it helps explain her 56 percent unfavorability rating.
During the course of the Benghazi investigation, New York Times reporter Michael Schmidt learned Clinton had used a personal email account while secretary of state, rather than official State Department email accounts maintained on federal servers. Those official communications included thousands of emails that would later be marked classified by the State Department retroactively. After allegations were raised that some of the emails in question contained classified information, an investigation was initiated by the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) regarding how classified information was handled on the Clinton server. The result was that Clinton and her staff decided which emails to turn over to the State Department as public records and which to withhold; they say they then destroyed the ones they had designated as “personal”
Here are just a few of the FBI’s revelations:
Hillary Used MANY Different Devices
Hillary has repeatedly claimed that she set up a private server, so that she could use ONE email address and ONE device. The FBI’s investigation found that Hillary has infact, used at least 13 mobile devices “associated with her two known phone numbers.” Here she is video of her clearly saying she only used one device which was proven to be a lie.
Her Aides Destroyed Her Old Blackberrys…Or Lost Them.
The FBI report states that Hillary’s aides were tasked with discarding of Hillary’s SIM cards when she’d switch devices – but “[Huma] Abedin and [Monica] Hanley indicated the whereabouts of Clinton’s devices would frequently become unknown once she transitioned to a new device.” According to another aide, he destroyed Hillary’s cellphones by hitting them with a hammer.
Hillary Told The FBI She Had No Idea How Classified Intelligence Worked.
Yes, the “Most Qualified Candidate In World History” admitted to the FBI that she had no idea how classification worked. The FBI explained, “Clinton could not give an example of how classification of a document was determined…[she] did not recall receiving any emails she thought should not be on an unclassified system.” She even said that a classified email regarding a drone strike in Pakistan didn’t present a problem: “Clinton stated deliberation over a future drone strike did not give her cause for concern regarding classification.”
Hillary Hide 17,448 Work Related Emails From The State Department.
Hillary claimed that she turned over all work-related emails and was fully transparent. However, the FBI reported that they’d “recovered from additional data sources and reviewed approximately 17,448 unique work-related and personal e-mails from Clinton’s tenure.” The fBI also found 30 emails related to the Benghazi attacks that Clinton did not turn over.
Hillary Wiped Her Email Again After The New York Times Reported Her Private Email Server.
According to the FBI, one person interviewed “indicated he believed he had an ‘oh shit moment’ and sometime between March 25-31, 2015, deleted the Clinton archive mailbox from the PRN server and used BleachBit to delete the exported .PST files he had created on the server system containing Clinton’s emails.”
Hillary Said She Didn’t Think “C” on Emails Meant “Confidential.”
I wish I was joking. The FBI reported, “When asked about the e-mail chain containing ‘(C)’ portion markings that State determined to currently contain CONFIDENTIAL information, Clinton stated she did not know what the ‘(C)’ meant at the beginning of the paragraphs and speculated it was referencing paragraphs marked in alphabetical order.”
Transmitted/Received Top Secret Classified Information.
Hillary has stated that she had “never sent or received information marked classified”. The FBI investigation, however, found that “The 81 classified email chains contained 8 email chains classified TOP SECRET…37 email chains classified SECRET, and 36 email chains classified CONFIDENTIAL at the time they were sent.”

More Lies and Betrayals:
On September 11, 2012, attackers overran a U.S. consulate in Benghazi, Libya. Despite repeated requests from the consulate for additional security, these requests were denied. As a result of this, Ambassador Chris Stevens and three other Americans were murdered. In her testimony before congress, Hillary Clinton, as secretary of state at the time, took responsibility for the security lapses.
While under oath in early-2013 Senate testimony, Clinton denied any personal knowledge of weapons shipments from Benghazi to other countries. wikileaks released a memo Hillary sent to the White House in August 2014. In the memo she says that “We should return to plans to provide the FSA [the Free Syrian Army], or some group of moderate forces, with equipment that will allow them to deal with a weakened ISIL, and stepped up operations against the Syrian regime.”
Another lie. It should be noted that many of the weapons she described going to “moderates” ended up in the hands of anti-American jihadists, including ISIS and al-Qaeda. It is suspected that some of these same weapons may have been used to kill the Americans in Benghazi. But there is more.
In the memo, Hilary goes on to say: “A source in Tripoli stated in confidence that when the U.S. Embassy was evacuated, the presence of two U.S. Navy jet fighters over the city brought all fighting to a halt for several hours, as Islamist forces were not certain that these aircraft would not also provide close ground support for moderate government forces.”
It has frequently been pointed out that, even if American aircraft were not equipped to fight, their mere appearance could have intimidated the “Islamist forces” and stopped the siege in Benghazi, enabling a rescue. But though Clinton’s memo notes how effective just such a display American air power can be, neither she nor President Obama dispatched military aircraft to Benghazi when they were needed. Instead, they collaborated on a deceptive strategy to blame an anti-Muslim video for the attack.
HILLARY’S “COERCIVE DIPLOMACY”
Whoever is elected on Nov. 8 will be a war president on day one, with the power and autonomy to undertake destabilizing shows of force, drone strikes, special operations raids and ever-deepening military interventions. Today, combat troop deployments are routinely made by executive branch spokespeople, decisions to back open-ended air wars in places like Yemen. “Partners” like Saudi Arabia are announced via press release and congressional oversight hearings largely boil down to legislators pleading with commanders to ask for more troops and looser rules of engagement. Though she has opposed uses of force that she believed were a bad idea, she has consistently endorsed starting new wars and expanding others.
Iraq: In 2002, as a senator for New York, Clinton voted for the authorization for the use of military force in Iraq. In her accompanying floor statement, she claimed it was to ensure President George W. Bush was “in the strongest possible position to lead our country in the United Nations or in war” and to show Saddam Hussein that the country was united. After initially defending the vote, she later adjusted, variously declaring she “thought it was a vote to put inspectors back in,” it was “based on the facts and assurances that I had at the time,” and ultimately “it was a mistake to trust Bush.” Clinton also justified the 2002 vote as simply one for compelling compliance, proclaiming, “I believe in coercive diplomacy,” in a January 2008 presidential debate. Regardless of the reasons or excuses behind her vote, the Iraq War was a foreign-policy and geopolitical disaster.
Pakistan: In 2007 and 2008, Clinton strongly disagreed with then-Sen. Barack Obama about striking al Qaeda targets inside of Pakistan. Obama called such attacks “just common sense” if there were “actionable intelligence.” Clinton referred to the 1998 cruise missile strikes in Afghanistan that failed to kill Osama bin Laden and warned that “we have to be very conscious of all the consequences,” particularly anything that would destabilize Pakistan’s nuclear arsenal. But in 2009 when she became Secretary of State, her tune changed. Obama would go on to authorize 506 strikes that killed 3,040 terrorists and 391 civilians. (Using the average estimates provided by three non-governmental organizations – here , here and here. Nearly 300 of these occurred while Clinton was secretary of state, during which time U.S. diplomats opposed only one or two of the strikes. Whatever hesitation Clinton once had in attacking militants in Pakistan vanished upon being confirmed as secretary of state.
Afghanistan: In 2009, Clinton supported three-quarters of the Afghanistan surge. When Gen. Stanley McChrystal, the commander of U.S. forces in Afghanistan, requested four brigades of additional U.S. troops in the summer of 2009, Clinton endorsed deploying three of them (equaling roughly 30,000 troops). Reportedly, “Clinton usually favored sending even more [troops] than [Secretary of Defense Robert] Gates did.” Obama eventually deployed 33,000 extra troops. It is hard to identify any enduring political or security gains in Afghanistan that have resulted from the surge. Moreover, more than three-quarters of all U.S. troop casualties in that country since 9/11 were killed or wounded in the four years after the surge was initiated.
Libya: In 2011, Clinton was a strong proponent of regime change in Libya (as was Trump). It is forgotten today that a primary justification she offered for the U.S. military role in Libya was to pay back allies for Afghanistan. As she stated in late March 2011: “We asked our allies, our NATO allies, to go into Afghanistan with us 10 years ago. They have been there, and a lot of them have been there despite the fact they were not attacked.… When it comes to Libya, we started hearing from the U.K., France, Italy, other of our NATO allies. This was in their vital national interest.” Academic research shows that great powers enjoy freedom of action to avoid becoming dragged into wars involving allies, but the Libya regime change intervention was, unfortunately, one that the Obama administration chose to fully support, despite misleading the American people at the time that it was not the goal. Obama correctly labeled not planning for the postwar scenario his “worst mistake” and correctly described Libya as a “mess.” Here is a video of her laughing at Gaddafi’s death by torture.
Osama bin Laden: In 2011, she endorsed the Navy SEAL raid into Abbottabad, Pakistan, that killed Osama bin Laden, even while recognizing that it would likely poison diplomatic relations with Pakistan for a short time. According to Vice President Joe Biden — who opposed it — every other official (including Clinton) was “51-49” in supporting the raid. Before the news broke, Obama called Bill Clinton (who, as president, signed three covert findings authorizing bin Laden’s killing) to let him know the al Qaeda leader was finally dead. “I assume Hillary’s already told you,” Obama said to an unaware Clinton. As Hillary Clinton later wrote in her memoir: “They told me not to tell anyone, so I didn’t tell anyone. Bill later joked with me, ‘No one will ever doubt you can keep a secret!’”
Syria: In a leaked Wikileaks memo she proposed to the White House — along with CIA Director David Petraeus — a covert program (apparently larger than the one later authorized) to provide arms to vetted Syrian rebel groups fighting Bashar al-Assad’s government.
Here is a video of simple video clips of Hillary lying for 13 minutes straight.
Here is another video of her saying she landed under “sniper fire” when visiting Bosnia in 1996, when in fact, there were children waiting for her where she signed autographs!
Here is a another video covering some of what I have said in this blog post and what a compulsive liar she is. Start at 30 seconds.
Here is a taped recording where she laughs about how when she was an attorney, she got a man off from raping a child and laughs about how when he passed the polygraph test, it destroyed her faith in them. Start at to 1:40.
There are so many things I have missed in this simple blog post, but I dont have the time to list them all as it would take me weeks to compile, since there is so much evidence against her. But I really dont feel it is necessary after seeing just this information. Hopefully it is clear to you that this woman is a lying, cunning , despicable person who is certainly not fit to hold the highest office in the land.
Peace will never flourish when people seek the power of government to deny one another freedom.
There is a growing movement of people worldwide, who no longer accept the current paradigm of governmental coercion and violence and instead believe in a society based on voluntary, mutual consent. For more on the ideals and principles of peace and liberty, see the video on the homepage.
