So You Think Hillary Clinton is the “Lesser of Evils”? Think Again!

Introduction by Thomas Baldwin:  This blog contains a compilation of recent articles published on Websites and appearing on Facebook describing aspects of Hillary Clinton’s behavior and performance and focusing on mostly foreign affairs.  Two of my recent blogs, (1) and (2) gave a large number of illustrations of how she and Bill Clinton have handled their financial affairs, both professionally and personally.  Together these blogs provide ample evidence of why Hillary should never become president and how, if by chance she does, will cause an unmitigated disaster to the welfare and continuance of a United States of America. As Ralph Nader has said repeatedly:  “Hillary Clinton is a Corporatist and a Militarist.” Effective leadership consists of both character and competence and determine the trust followers have in their leaders.  These articles all address both and the overwhelming evidence is that she lacks important qualities of  both, which is consistent with the polls showing people just don’t trust her!  ______________________________________________________________________________________

HILLARY CLINTON = LESSER OF TWO EVILS = THAT IS STILL EVIL!

“You don’t have to be a blinkered Bernie-bot to recognize the toxicity of Hillary Clinton and call her out on it, contrary to the party faithful’s insistence that the widening chasm between ‘Bern and Hill’ (Burn in Hell?) supporters is weakening the chances for a Democratic victory in November. Clinton’s less than stellar (Okay, gloves off . . . *abysmal*) record bears scrutiny and condemnation in equal measure.

Let’s start with her ruinous foreign policy initiatives during her reign as Secretary of State, along with the untold misery her erratic, war-mongering ‘diplomacy’ has brought to the millions of people living in abject poverty within the political vacuum she helped create in the wake of her vanity appointment as Secretary of Failed Mid-East States. Not to mention the millions of dollars she has received for kneeling before the financiers and Israeli lobbyists who cynically fete her, knowing she will prioritize their interests above the needs of her own contemptible subjects.

While we’re at it, why not take a look inside the foundation, or rather, the off-shore bank account that she and her equally corrupt spouse oversee to launder millions of dollars on behalf of their Wall Street cronies in the name of “philanthropy”? On second thought, better not, because some DNC apologist might bite your head off, using thinly-veiled class-based fear mongering as a cudgel to keep the party faithful in line. If you don’t support Clinton, then you are just begging for a Trump takeover of government, and where would that leave people who wear yoga pants? Long answer: At the mercy of people who wear baseball caps. Short answer (courtesy of Madeleine Albright): Hell.”

with Abby Martin and Ralph Nader

teleSUR English on Dec 19, 2015

On this week’s episode of The Empire Files, Abby Martin interviews American political figure Ralph Nader about the 2016 presidential race—from the “Brown Shirt” Trump movement to “corporate criminal” Hillary Clinton—and the reality of who has power in America.

Known for his widely-popular presidential run in 2000, he also ran presidential campaigns against corporate power in 1996, 2004 and 2008.

A consumer advocate since the 1950’s, his work against auto industry giants forced the creation of mandated safety measures that saved millions of lives from for-profit auto production. His contributions span disability rights to exposing corporate pollution.

Hillary Clinton and the Syrian Bloodbath by Jeffrey Sachs

In the Milwaukee debate, Hillary Clinton took pride in her role in a recent UN Security Council resolution on a Syrian ceasefire… This is the kind of compulsive misrepresentation that makes Clinton unfit to be President. Clinton’s role in Syria has been to help instigate and prolong the Syrian bloodbath, not to bring it to a close.

Hillary Clinton Sugarcoating Her Disastrous Record

shutterstock_352127324

Bernie Sanders is far too easy on Hillary Clinton in their debates. Clinton flaunts her record and experience in ways that Sanders could use to expose her serious vulnerabilities and disqualifications for becoming president. Sanders responds to Clinton’s points, but without the precision that could demolish her arrogance.

For example, she repeatedly says that Sanders has not levelled with people about the cost of full Medicare for all, or single-payer. Really? In other countries, single-payer is far simpler and more efficient than our present profiteering, wasteful, corporatized healthcare industry. Canada covers all of its citizens, with free choice of doctors and hospitals, for about $4,500 per capita, compared to the over $9,000 per capita cost in the U.S. system that still leaves tens of millions of people uninsured or underinsured.

Detailed studies in the New England Journal of Medicine show big savings from a single-payer system in our country.

It is Hillary Clinton who is not levelling with the people about the costs of maintaining the spiraling U.S. costs of drugs, hospital stays and insurance premiums that are the highest in the world.

Mirror, Mirror on the Wall (2): Who Is—Greediest? Most Power Hungry? Biggest Hawk? Most Dirty Energy? Most Corrupt but “Lesser Evil”?

_____________________________________________________________________________
Introduction by Thomas Baldwin, February 14, 2016. This is a revised and updated version of a recent blog entitled:  “Mirror, Mirror on the Wall; Who is the Biggest ‘Political Whore’ of All?”
A few people objected to the coarse language but it was meant in the context of a politician without moral scrupples or principles and not to demean prostitution in a traditional context.  But Hillary Clinton has demonstrated that she has unlimited ambition to increase her power and her personal wealth along with her husband, Bill Clinton.  It would be a tragedy of major magnitude to have these two back in the White House now that the damage which was caused by Slick Willy’s presidency has become much better assessed.  In fact under the influence of a proven corrupt, corporate dominated Duopoly and Democratic Party, it would signify the ultimate destruction of the Republic.
This blog begins to document the unrestricted greed and thirst for power of what can only be labeled egomania at work in the political sector.  Americans must change that in 2016 and stop the total theft of our government.  And I have not really begun to address the imminent difficulty she is facing from a thorough FBI investigation and a possible indictment!  This debacle has the potential to make the Watergate affair and Nixon’s impeachment and resignation look like a picnic!

Hillary Clinton’s War: The Destruction of Libya and the Murder of Gaddafi

Hillary with Libyan soldiers--victory sign

Hillary Clinton with Libyan soldiers in October 2011. The ‘V for victory’ gesture seems slightly misplaced at the moment.Kevin Lamarque/Reuters 

Compiled and edited by Thomas Baldwin with the grateful assistance of DeNeice Kenehan.

(Note:  There are literally dozens of references which relate to this subject and it is impossible to select only the “best”. But this is a good representation of good ones which tell the Libyan story and it is very ugly what the U.S. and NATO did to this prosperous democracy in Africa.  If you read enough of them you will be convinced Hillary Clinton has bloody hands. And the “emails–disclosed and undisclosed–provide a window and shine light on what really happened there.  That’s why this subject is important Mr. Sanders and you should be interested!)

HILLARY’S WAR: The REAL STORY about Benghazi is what happened before the bloody blowback to the interventionist western overthrow of the Libyan government, destruction of the nation and regional chaos. And it looks like Hillary’s role in this war and her relationship with her private “spy,” Sidney Blumenthal might be explored this Thursday, October 22,  by the House Benghazi investigation committee.

If it’s not then we’ll know why.  It will be opening Pandora’s Box to expose our war mongering imperialism in another concrete case.  And both political parties support those and it will show another example of how the U.S. government doesn’t give a damn about our immoral and murderous behavior around the world as long as it serves our imperialistic needs to dominate by our show of military force.  The Duopoly, driven by the Military Industrial Complex (backed by big banks and corporatists), only cares about power and money and they use “humanitarian” excuses and the establishment of “democracy” as a reason to invade another country–any country that can’t retaliate.  Any country which attempts to show independence and serving their own interests is branded as headed by a “ruthless dictatorship” and a threat to national security. And Libya serves as a perfect example along with numerous other examples.

“Hillary Clinton’s campaign released a letter this week in which 10 foreign policy experts criticized her opponent Bernie Sanders’ call for closer engagement with Iran and said Sanders had “not thought through these crucial national security issues that can have profound consequences for our security.”

The missive from the Clinton campaign was covered widely in the press, but what wasn’t disclosed in the coverage is that fully half of the former State Department officials and ambassadors who signed the letter, and who are now backing Clinton, are now enmeshed in the military contracting establishment, which has benefited tremendously from escalating violence around the world, particularly in the Middle East.

Here are some of the letter signatories’ current employment positions that were not disclosed in the reporting of the letter:”

The letter’s writers feel that Sanders has “not thought through … crucial national security issues that can have profound consequences for our security.”
