WASHINGTON, September 4, 2016 — Despite her claims of transparency and compliance with federal regulations, voters continue to find Hillary Clinton untrustworthy. Polls consistently show that Americans find her dishonest and untrustworthy, with just a third of the country holding a favorable view of her.
Those negative impressions have been boosted by the FBI’s release last week of more Clinton emails and her FBI interview regarding her personal email server.
Voters are convinced that Clinton has lied to them, but they are also dismayed by the steady drip of revelations about her past deeds. These reveal a different persona than that which she narrates to the public. They also suggest a definite pattern.
American Patriot, a news commentary and events blog, writes that Clinton, then Hillary Rodham, helped establish a publication called the “Yale Review of Law and Social Action.” The second issue devoted 50 pages to the murder trial of Black Panther, Ronnie McLucas and included illustrations of policemen as pigs. Another issue displayed a decapitated pig, while another described a pig as, “A lone natured beast that has no regard for law, justice or the right of people; a creature that bites the hand that feeds it; a foul depraved traducer found masquerading as the victim of an unprovoked attack.”
Clinton’s apparent disdain for law enforcement followed her after graduation. Former Arkansas Trooper D.L. Brown told of times Clinton was openly hostile, calling them “pigs” and “ignorant SOBs”.
Her dislike for law enforcement extended to her own body guards. According to former FBI agent Gary Aldrich,
Another close source, this one in the Secret Service, told me that Hillary had ordered her Secret Service protective detail to ‘stay the f–k away from me!’ and to keep at least ten yards of distance between her and them at all times. The Secret Service agent told me that it was much harder to protect her from a distance of ten yards, and she was told this, but she didn’t seem to care what the Secret Service said. He also told me that it was obvious that she had a clear dislike for the agents, bordering on hatred, in his opinion.
Along those same lines, another source reports that two Secret Service agents heard Hillary’s daughter Chelsea refer to them as ‘personal, trained pigs’ to some of her friends. When the friends had gone, the senior agent on the detail tried to scold Chelsea for such disrespect. He told her that he was willing to put his life on the line to save hers, and he believed that her father, the president, would be shocked if he heard what she had just said to her friends. Chelsea’s response? ‘I don’t think so. That’s what my parents call you.’
Her history suggests law enforcement officers would receive little support from a Hillary Clinton Administration. Clinton’s negativity toward law enforcement persists: “I will call for white people, like myself, to put ourselves in the shoes of those African- American families who fear every time their children go somewhere, who have to have ‘The Talk,’ about, you now, how to really protect themselves [from police], when they’re the ones who should be expecting protection from encounters with police,” she told CNN’s Wolf Blitzer.
Email evidence and public records suggest that Clinton Foundation donors received special treatment from Clinton at the State Department. That continues a pattern she set as first lady. Sally Bedell Smith wrote,
As early as 1994, a particularly energetic Chinese-American fund-raiser and Taiwanese businessman named Johnny Chung, came to the White House for the first of forty-nine visits, half of them authorized by Hillary’s office.
Chung described the White House as “Like a turnstile in a subway. You have to put in coins to open the gates.”
According to the Patriot, Chung gave several hundred thousand dollars to the DNC. It is believed the money came from the Chinese Military Intelligence Sources. Chung went to Hillary Clinton with a number of requests for Chinese officials.
- A meeting with President Clinton
- A tour of the White House
- Lunch at the White House
- Photo op with the First Lady
- An invitation to attend the president’s radio address.
Every request was granted after Chung gave a $50,000 check made out to the DNC.
According to a web magazine, The Federalist, newly released emails reveal top State Department aides did repeated favors for large Clinton Foundation donors. One message shows that Clinton first declined a meeting with the crown prince of Bahrain, but changed her mind after he went through the Clinton Foundation to make the request.
Soon after their meeting, the State Department approved a large increase in arms sales to Bahrain’s armed forces at the same time Bahrain was crushing pro-democracy protests. This included $70,000 worth of “toxicological agents” and included a missiles and armored vehicles.
All this has had an impact on election poll numbers. Clinton has gone from carrying an almost 10 percent lead over Donald Trump to a 3 percent lead.
Americans claim to be tired of corrupt and dishonest politics and to yearn for transparency. But as radio talk show host, Laura Ingrahm, said, the Clintons “need a court order to make them transparent.” America does not want Clinton. It may, however, settle for her.
