Women should hope that Hillary Clinton is not the first woman President.
There is little doubt that—some day—a woman will serve as President of the United States, but if Hillary Clinton is the first it will be a disaster for the nation and the world. She and her husband are two of the most self-serving, power-hungry, morally-challenged political leaders in our history—and that’s saying something.
From the New Yorker,
The news today about the Clintons all fleshes out, in one way or another, their lack of interest in policing serious conflict-of-interest problems that arise in their overlapping roles:
- The New York Times has a report about the State Department’s decision to approve the sale of Uranium mines to a Russian company that donated $2.35 million to the Clinton Global Initiative, and that a Russian investment bank promoting the deal paid Bill $500,000 for a speech in Moscow.
- The Washington Post reports that Bill Clinton has received $26 million in speaking fees from entities that also donated to the Clinton Global Initiative.
- The Washington Examiner reports, “Twenty-two of the 37 corporations nominated for a prestigious State Department award — and six of the eight ultimate winners — while Hillary Clinton was Secretary of State were also donors to the Clinton family foundation.”
- And Reuters reports, “Hillary Clinton’s family’s charities are refiling at least five annual tax returns after a Reuters review found errors in how they reported donations from governments, and said they may audit other Clinton Foundation returns in case of other errors.”
The mere fact she can make a serious bid for the White House speaks volumes as to how far the nation and her people have fallen. Hillary and Bill’s brazen actions connected to their foundation are beyond shady into the realm of evil.
When you are a power couple consisting of a former president and a current secretary of State and likely presidential candidate, you have the ability to raise a lot of money for charitable purposes that can do a lot of good. But some of the potential sources of donations will be looking to get something in return for their money other than moral satisfaction or the chance to hobnob with celebrities. Some of them want preferential treatment from the State Department, and others want access to a potential future Clinton administration.
Countless foreign entities would undoubtedly love to see her win, because they believe Hillary and Bill would do their bidding from 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue. I don’t know which is worse: Having Hillary carry out their desires, or facing their wrath when she betrays her benefactors, demonstrating that the only thing she worships is her own power.
Bottom-line: Hillary may very well be the most dangerous person to seriously seek the office. Our last three Presidents have inflicted critical wounds upon Liberty. Will we elect Hillary to administer the final and fatal blows?
