Make no mistake about it: Hillary Clinton still craves the Presidency of the United States and she is convinced she can get it: Her strategy is all drawn up and she is ready to launch yet another Russia-hating witch hunt lie that would put Senator Joe McCarthy to shame. What a prospect for Halloween 2020!
Fittingly, the Arch Witch of the West’s latest Lust for Power grab was signaled by her husband, former President Bill Clinton the day before Halloween.
On October 30, Clinton attended an event at Georgetown University Law School with Hillary and their always loyal ally Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginzburg.
Commenting on his wife’s stupendous and undying ambition, the former president and longtime associate and repeated guest of murdered pedophile Joseph Epstein said, “She may or may not run for anything but I’m never running for president again.”
Neither Bill nor Hillary appeared to realize the serendipitous timing of his comment right before Halloween: For with the passing years, Hillary has come to eerily resemble her close friend passionate admirer, actress Bette Midler.
Especially as Midler played Salem witch Winfred Sanderson in the 1993 comedy horror movie “Hocus Pocus.”
But Hillary herself has made her goal and her strategy to achieve it crystal clear already. She always slowly and supposedly meticulously prepares the path to her goals with all the obvious slow, ponderous and painfully predictable progress of a lumbering mammoth.
Veteran US foreign correspondent Bill Thomas, formerly of the Los Angeles Times and one of the funniest and shrewdest political commentators in the business diagnoses Hillary’s familiar trope of ponderous preparations for her next power grab in an important article on the “American Greatness” web site that appeared on October 7.
“Until the field narrows and more funds are available Hillary’s working her blue-state base in community centers, churches, and lesbian bookstores while her publisher picks up the tab,” Thomas wrote. “It has to feel a little like old times to the aging grafter [con artist]. In 2000, she listened her way through every county in the state of New York to win a seat in the Senate. In 2008, she tried the same thing in her first run for the White House.”
Second, Thomas noted that Hillary and her 39-year-old daughter Chelsea “wrote a book together (or at least saw the page proofs before they went to the printer). It’s called The Book of Gutsy Women: Favorite Stories of Courage and Resilience. The book is said to contain uplifting profiles of women and girls from civil rights pioneer Harriet Tubman to Greta Thunberg, the teenage climate alarmist from Village of the Damned.”
Thomas continues: “All the key words in the title are qualities Hillary pretends to have, especially ‘courage.’ When, in reality, if she had been either courageous or gutsy, Hillary, the country’s most cheated on woman, would have divorced her philandering husband years ago.”
Earlier in October, Clinton with her usual stunningly bad timing and lack of self-awareness picked a vicious fight with Democratic presidential candidate Tulsi Gabbard.
Gabbard is everything Clinton is not – and never was: She is a proven American patriot; she is happily married; she is athletic, relatively young, beautiful and gutsy; she served with success and honor in the US armed forces and she is even a member of not one but several minorities – Samoan American by race and Hindu by religion.
Unfortunately, Gabbard is also politically principled, courageous, personally honorable and decent.
It is therefore inevitable that Hillary hates her.
Hillary lashed out at Gabbard accusing her with no evidence whatsoever – an inevitable Clinton specialty – of being a puppet of Russia and its president.
Joe McCarthy at his abusive alcoholic worst 65 years ago was never as repulsive or absurd.
Yet Hillary’s attack was entirely unnecessary: Though Gabbard has won the respect of a handful of thoughtful Americans on both left and right for her courage, independent thinking and responsible desire to rein in the US permanent warfare Deep State, these forces had already effectively muzzled and marginalized her.
She has polling at 2 percent to 3 percent in the opinion polls and tracking data the Democratic Party establishment uses – and manipulates – to control access to its nationally televised debates.
All Hillary therefore succeeded in doing was reviving Gabbard’s campaign and helping her to politically survive until the real voting starts in the US state of New Hampshire primary elections on February 11, 2020.
It is striking that even Hillary’s old colleagues the Democratic members of the Senate whom she served alongside for eight years are now heartedly sick and tired of her.
At least six of them – Senators Tammy Duckworth, Jon Tester, Joe Manchin, Martin Heinrich, Dick Durbin and Doug Jones – have already publicly called for her to publicly fade back into the woodwork and murky shadows from whence she came and trouble them politically no longer, “Politico” newspaper reported on October 24.
In February 2016, I wrote a column in an obscure US media platform in which I compared Hillary’s long, joyless trudge to the Democratic presidential nomination in Philadelphia to Admiral Zinovy Rozhestvensky’s 20,000 mile trek around the world in 1905 so that his entire fleet could be sunk or captured by a Japanese force with only half as many battleships at the Battle of Tsushima.
I was particularly struck by the comparison of Hillary to a Loser Navy that used up 500,000 tons of coal (precious fossil fuels) and then sank on sight when the moment of battle finally came.
True Believers still hopefully waiting for Hillary’s Hocus Pocus Halloween Horror 3 should know what to expect.
