Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump accused his primary opponent, Marco Rubio, of being a “choker,” meaning someone who tightens up before a performance or a debate. But the real queen of “Chokers” is none other than Hillary Rodham Clinton.
She blamed yesterday’s two-minute long choking fit at a rally on Trump. However, her coughing fits are legendary. Perhaps that’s why she spent 272 days avoiding press conferences. When she did finally stage a press conference, she held it at the back of a noisy airplane.
The press conference was a masterpiece of political staging.
“Mrs. Clinton, what do you have [roaring of jet engines] the recent [more roaring] of e-mails?”
“What?!” she shouts back. “What e-mails? I’ve already told you [roaring of engines] about [roaring] I know about e-mails!”
The noise was convenient for any denials before any future investigatory panels about any questions she may or may not have heard and may or may not have answered aboard the jetliner.
By contrast, Trump’s presser aboard his own Trump jet was completely intelligible. His jet’s engines could barely be heard in the perfectly sound-proof cabin of his immaculately designed billion-dollar personal jet.
Hillary reminds one of the character, Gollum, in the book and film series, The Lord of the Rings. The ancient creature Gollum, a predecessor of the hobbits, then known as Smeagol murdered his cousin, Deagol, for possession of the Ring of Power. Afterwards, he was cast out of his society. For five hundred years, he hunted and foraged for food, and sometimes resorted to outright murder, stealing babies from their cradles.
In time, he developed a sort of tic, a gagging in his throat. In trying to speak or swallow, especially when caught in a lie, he would utter a garbled word, “Gollum.” Soon, that became his name, forgetting his former name in his state of a split personality.
Hillary’s tic is more of a “gack!”
“I don’t know anything about – gack! gack! gack! – any – gack! gack! gack! – e-mails! gack! gack! gack!
“I never knew – gack! gack! gack! – the information in my – gack! gack! gack! – e-mails was – gack! gack! gack! – confidential. I didn’t know that the – gack! gack! gack! “c” meant – gack! gack! gack! – “confidential.”
Naturally. Why it could have meant “Conspiratorial.” Or “Crooked”. Or “Culpable.” Or “Criminal.” Or “Corrupt.” Gack! Gack! Gack!
Hillary has a long history of lies for which she will eventually have to atone. Cattle futures. Gack! Gack! Gack! Whitewater. Gack! Gack! Gack! Travelgate. Gack! Gack! Gack! Pardongate! Gack! Gack! Gack! Even Watergate. Gack! Gack! Gack!
Stealing White House furniture and antiques. Gack! Gack! Gack! An affair with and the murder of Vince Foster (she may not have been directly involved in his murder – she probably didn’t hold the gun, but there are many questions that were never answered). Gack! Gack! Gack!
Then there were the many quid pro quo dealings while she was a Senator from New York. Gack! Gack! Gack! Just ask her presidential opponent, Donald Trump. Gack! Gack! Gack!
What were she and Bill doing at Trump’s wedding to Melania? Gack! Gack! Gack!
There’s also her role in Rodatom, selling American uranium to the Russia. Gack! Gack! Gack! Twenty percent of America’s uranium supply. Gack! Gack! Gack! And she accuses Trump of playing with Putin?! Gack! Gack! Gack!
And of course, there’s the ultimate crime of Benghazi. GACK! GACK! GACK! She scruples not to put it all on Obama. Gack! Gack! Gack! He’s the President and no doubt he was ultimately giving the orders. Gack! Gack! Gack! But she was the Secretary of State at the time and she carried out the orders, even though she claims she did her best to find out what was going on and send the requested aid to the consulate in Benghazi. Gack! Gack! Gack! Her answer comes with a caveat, though. Gack! Gack! Gack! The CIA’s responsibility it was to send helps. Yes, my precious. Poor, poor Hillary. Ambassador Stevens was Hillary’s friends, yesss, he was. Why would poor Hillary wants to hurtses her friends, Gacker? Gack! Gack! Gack!
The Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) is one of those alphabet bureaus whose executive guidance is somewhat – unclear. The CIA is a civilian foreign intelligence services of the United States federal government, tasked with gathering, processing and analyzing national security information from around the world, primarily through the use of human intelligence (HUMINT). As one of the principal members of the U.S. Intelligence Community (IC), the CIA reports to the Director of National Intelligence and is primarily focused on providing intelligence for the President and Cabinet.
The CIA is currently directed by John O. Brennan. The Director of National Intelligence (DNI) is the United States government official – subject to the authority, direction, and control of the President – required by the Intelligence Reform and Terrorism Prevention Act of 2004 to:
- Serve as principal advisor to the President, the National Security Council, and the Homeland Security Council about intelligence matters related to national security;Serve as head of the 16-member United States Intelligence Community ; and direct and oversee the National Intelligence Program.
Further, by Presidential policy directive signed in October 2012, the DNI was given overall responsibility for Intelligence Community whistleblowing and source protection through Presidential Policy Directive 19.
The CIA is now subservient to this post-9/11 agency, which in turn, reports directly to the President of the United States. So Hillary is correct in that the buck stops with Obama. But that doesn’t let her off the hook, exactly. The question, which the Watergate Committee of which she was a member asked regarding President Richard Nixon, remains: what did Hillary know and when did she know it.
She claims she refused to go on national television and blame the embassy attack on a video. Some other people refused as well, apparently including James Clapper. The task finally fell to U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations, Susan Rice, to use the video defense, which was a lie.
Obama may well be at the bottom of Benghazi. He should pay for this crime, which involved running guns from Libya to Turkey to Syria, and is the real reason Stevens was in Benghazi (a notoriously dangerous city). However, Hillary shouldn’t put away her prison orange jumpsuit just yet.
She was still complicity in the Benghazi, in using not one but twelve different devices in which she sent unsecure e-mail messages, in addition to multiple unsecured personal computers at her home. She’s now guilty of lying to Congress (a crime attested to by the head of the FBI, although he refused to pursue any prosecution), sending classified e-mails over an unsecure server, and receiving and using foreign funds for campaigning and quid pro quo “legislation.”
GACK, GACK, GACK!!!
No wonder she avoided press conferences for 272 days and when she did, she held it in the back of a noisy jet. And gags on every lie she tells.
Obama is guiltier. But Hillary is guilty enough. Can you imagine her trying to take the presidential oath of office.
“I, Hillary Clinton, do solemnly swear – Gack! Gack! Gack! – that I will faithfully – Gack! Gack! Gack! – execute the Office of President of the United States, and will to the best of my ability – Gack! Gack! Gack! – preserve, protect, – Gack! Gack! Gack! – and defend – Gack! Gack! Gack! the Constitution – Gack! Gack! Gack! – of the United States.
God help us all.
Gack! Gack! Gack!
