Leave it to Paul Krugman, the voice of the “responsible” left, to tell us when it’s time to stop exposing the criminal face of the shape-shifting chameleon that is Hillary Clinton so that we can “win” the upcoming election and keep a globalist Business-first war-mongering self-serving Democrat in the White House. Because, as you know, it’s always better than the alternative. Right?
In an op-ed for the New York Times, Krugman writes about how Bernie Sanders has to start acting like an adult and stop “feeding the right-wing disinformation machine” by talking about how corrupt Clinton is.
“Engaging in innuendo suggesting, without evidence, that Clinton is corrupt is, at this point, basically campaigning on behalf of the RNC. If Sanders really believes, as he says, that it’s all-important to keep the White House out of Republican hands, he should stop all that – and tell his staff to stop it too.” Paul Krugman, NYT
By far and away, Krugman’s career-minded pandering aside, Hillary Clinton is the most corrupt politician left standing this election cycle. Period. And she’s dishonest. That’s been proven time and time again.
Let’s take a look at a few of the most recent examples of work establishing Hillary Clinton’s criminal bona fides, shall we? Let’s see if it’s just Bernie doing that work “on behalf of the RNC” as Paul seems to suggest.
Right now there are as many as 147 FBI agents working on her email case. That’s the story about how as Sec. of State, Hillary Clinton decided to set up her own email server, in her home, so that she and her staff could edit her communications while serving this country in that position. It was TOTALLY illegal and done for the sole purpose of getting away with criminal behavior without leaving an email trail behind that could expose her down the road.
Clinton lied about Benghazi when she knew for a fact that the attack on the compound had nothing to do with some stupid video the FBI paid a snitch to make for a honey-pot sting in L.A.
She had her lifelong friend, Sidney Blumenthal, running around in Libya trying to cut deals with anyone he could so they, the Clinton Foundation, could make money in the rubble that was left in the wake of her regime change operation in the country. Blumenthal sent her an email back then suggesting the French and Brits really only wanted the oil in Libya and to keep the country’s beloved leader from using his vast gold reserves to usurp French control of the region. So much for her “humanitarian intervention”
Clinton’s “compassionate invasion” of Haiti following the 2010 earthquake has been an unmitigated disaster for everyone involved EXCEPT for Bill and Hillary Clinton and a few of their favorite businesses. Her email scandal revealed how the state department worked diligently to put a bright smiley happy face on the story, trying to make it look less corrupt.
In 2013, Hillary Clinton’s brother took a job on the advisory board of a Haiti gold mining company. I wonder what kind of influence that hire bought them.
Just this past month, Haitians are protesting in large numbers the corruption and graft of the Clintons in their country and how they practically stole the billions of dollars of recovery money the people of the world donated for the people of Haiti, to help them rebuild after the earthquake. Hillary Clinton, then Sec. of State, put her corrupt husband in charge of that money.
“Six years after the massive earthquake in Haiti, many people in the country continue to hold Hillary Clinton’s State Department and the Clinton Foundation responsible for a botched recovery effort that cost billions for seemingly little returns.
The New York Times reports that the Clintons have been a top target of protesters in Port au Prince, who claim earthquake aid money was mismanaged and lucrative deals went to Clinton cronies.” Alana Goodman, Mar. 2016
Back in 2009, when Manuel Zelaya was illegally removed from office in a coup in Honduras, the Clinton machine worked overtime to make sure the leftist president remained out of office, and the far-right coup leaders who replaced him, remained in power.
As for the Clinton connections, Grandin wrote, “In the Nation,Dana Frank and I covered that coup as it unfolded. Later, as Clinton’s emails were released, others, such as Robert Naiman, Mark Weisbrot and Alex Main, revealed the central role she played in undercutting Manuel Zelaya, the deposed president, and undercutting the opposition movement demanding his restoration. In so doing, Clinton allied with the worst sectors of Honduran society.” AlterNet, Mar. 2016
Before her murder, anti-coup activist Berta Cáceres, singled out Hillary Clinton as the one leading the charge to bolster legitimacy for the illegal government that took over Honduras.
Not only was that government that Hillary backed (and helped create) an illegal one, they were and are a brutal military junta, for the most part, serving the interests of foreign businesses who have flooded into the country in the wake of the coup in order to strip the nation of it’s natural resources.
The Clinton-brokered election did indeed install and legitimate a militarized regime based on repression. In the interview, Cáceres says that Clinton’s coup-government, under pressure from Washington, passed terrorist and intelligence laws that criminalized political protest. Cáceres called it “counterinsurgency,” carried out on behalf of “international capital”—mostly resource extractors—that has terrorized the population, murdering political activists by the high hundreds. “Every day,” Cáceres said elsewhere, “people are killed.” The Nation, Mar. 2016
As far as the murder of Berta Caceres is concerned, it’s still unsolved at this point. There is one witness, Gustavo Castro, a well known Mexican national, activist, and journalist but he is currently in custody of the illegal military junta running Honduras at this point and is not likely to ever be seen again.
We still don’t have a clear idea of the events surrounding Cáceres’s murder. There is one witness, Gustavo Castro, a Mexican national, activist, and journalist, who was with Cáceres when gunmen burst into her bedroom. Berta died in his arms. Castro was himself shot twice, but survived by playing dead.
The Honduran government—that “unity government” Clinton is proud of—has Castro in lockdown, refusing him contact with the outside world. The Nation, Mar. 2016
So I wonder who killed the activist woman who fingered Hillary Clinton. Right before her run for the White House.
In a recent interview with Rachel “Suck Up” Maddow, Hillary Clinton was asked if she would consider shutting down the Clinton Foundation or the Clinton Global(ist) Initiative while she was president in order to avoid any perception of corruption or influence peddling.
Clinton’s response was too say the way to fix that was through “transparency” with the for-profit institutions. Translation: “hell no. I can make a lot of money with those things while running the country”
Transparency or lack thereof, is Hillary’s biggest weakness in the eyes of the general population. At least that is true of those who are paying attention these days, and a lot of us are paying attention these days.
When it comes to real lefties like myself refusing to back Hillary Clinton as the Democratic nominee for the White House, the reason is simple: it’s the corruption, stupid.
She is a liar. She is a whore to Goldman Sachs and any other major corporation or financial interest that has money to stuff in her panties. She installs brutal dictatorships that literally kill real leftists with impunity while she sings their praises and calls them “democracies” until she can’t anymore as the rest of the world expose them for what they are. Forget Honduras and Haiti… she was family friends with Mubarak in Egypt and supported his brutal dictatorship up until the moment she finally had to admit he was killing protesters like it was going out of style and called for his removal.
Hillary Clinton doesn’t deserve to be in the White House and I don’t care how many op-eds Paul Krugman writes on the subject, I’m not going to stop reporting on her corruption just like those “right wing” publications I just quoted or linked to like: Salon, Politico, AlterNet and the Nation.
Truth be told, it’s not the Republican Party that is fragmented these days, it’s the Dems. We’ve been busted up since Obama was the projected winner of the nomination back in 2008.
The anti-war, anti-globalization left was unified under the Bush administration like never before in my way too many years of adulthood.
With the coronation of the neoliberal Business Firster Barack Obama, the real left broke from the petite bourgeoisie, play it safe, DNC “pragmatic” left and ever since then, our numbers have grown while the Business Party left of Clinton, Obama, Clinton is dying on the vine. Just check out Bernie’s rallies if you don’t believe me. Or check out the massive difference in the voting in states that don’t use the hijacked electronic voting machines… that’s show you what the real numbers should look like.
Paul Krugman is essentially saying “ignore Hillary’s corruption and war-mongering and lies because The Donald is bad” and frankly that argument, though it is going to be the call to arms for the Killary Campaign in the near future, is spurious at best and insulting beyond measure.
And because The Donald is so “bad”, we are supposed to rally behind a proven criminal and war-mongering war profiteer? And that’s Paul’s assessment of the situation? We have to shut up about the truth about Hillary because we want to empower her and the Clinton Foundation even more by sticking her and her private email accounts in the White House?
Is he insane?
I don’t care if Bernie steals the nomination at this point. He better not stop talking about how corrupt she is… because she is corrupt and there are plenty of left-leaning publications that have exposed the remarkable level of corruption she has reached over the years.
If she looses to Cruz the televangelist or Comb-over Trump, you will see the left come together instantaneously. They’ll be back out on the streets where they belong protesting like they should have been during the left cover days of ObamaGod.
Unfortunately, that’s exactly why she will “win” the presidency. Four more years of left cover war-mongering and neoliberal regime change ops across the world. That’s what we will get and that is why I hope Bernie keeps raking her corrupt ass over the coals every chance he gets.
