Authoritarian Hillary is Now on the Defensive
By Daily Bell Staff - June 07, 2016

We have Hillary all wrong: Americans hate a politician of the press’ imagination. To her detractors, she’s either a bloodless automaton or the devil incarnate. Is it any wonder that she’s guarded? -Salon

This article posted at Salon suggests that much of the criticism aimed at Hillary occurs because she is not a man.

As best we can tell, if we are properly following the article, Hillary’s problems begin with her womanhood.

As Gov. John Hickenlooper of Colorado, a Hillary supporter, put it on CBS’s Face the Nation, “If she was a man, all this stuff wouldn’t be at the same level.”  Of course, Trump fired back that she plays the “woman card,” and the media didn’t dare rebut it for fear, I suppose, of seeming to lend Trump proof.

This in turn generates a certain level of defensiveness.

Even when Hillary is in full campaign mode, she feels she needs the cover of policy so that the press won’t eviscerate her.

Or put another way, she believes she has to be perceived as taking the high road even when she isn’t. We will see how long it takes the press to turn on this feisty Hillary they seem to like now.

If this article is to be believed, Clinton’s unpopularity has more to do with her personality than any particular misbehaving.

Her “sins are fairly standard,” especially for someone who has been in public life for so long.

She has made mistakes and errors of judgment. She has also suffered from hubris, mostly because of her “associations with Big Money.”

In fact, she isn’t disliked for what she’s done. She is disliked for “who she is.”

This is the media’s fault, we learn from the article. The media pounces on Hillary’s defensiveness and plays it up.

Why? Because “bashing her” is a convenient way to rebut criticism that the mainstream media is generally sympathetic to liberalism.

Everything about Hillary is subject to criticism, from her shoes, to her hair to her voice.

The article ends on a discouraging note, if you are a Hillary supporter.

She has no strategy for placating the media and thus can “only plod along,” absorbing press criticism and ignoring it as best she can.

The trouble with this analysis, it seems to us, is that criticism to which Hillary is subject is actually mild, compared to what could be aimed at her.

Her husband has been accused of rape and drug smuggling. Both have been accused of murder and other serious crimes.

A new book, Crisis of Character, by law enforcement agent Gary Byrne, who was stationed at the Oval Office when Bill Clinton was president, claims that Hillary is too “erratic, uncontrollable and occasionally violent” to be president.

A popular video clip on the Internet shows Hillary laughing when describing the death of Muammar Gaddafi. “We came, we saw, he died,” she exclaims.

For her enemies, her glee in Gaddafi’s death is symptomatic of a larger character flaw. She will adopt almost any policy and perform almost any action if it advances her personal and professional ambitions.

She portrays herself as a “liberal” but it seems she is actually an authoritarian who believes in state power.

In fact, she believes in using the full panoply of state power. She believes in higher taxes, more regulation, and various other forms of state and monetary interference.

She also believes that the US ought to be proactive and aggressive when it comes to using military force.

Hillary would be an activist president who will use all the tools at her proposal to advance the globalist goals of monetary elites. As a result, a certain segment of the electorate don’t like her and even fear her.

Conclusion: There are significant issues here that have little to do with the color of her hair, the tone of her voice or her shoe styles. Perhaps she will be indicted because of her email controversy and have to drop out. If elected, she will make a disastrous president and likely bring the entire country closer to civil war.

    This article pretty well sums it up. Put lipstick on a pig and it is still a pig.

    • t_s

      Now you’re just being unkind to pigs!

      “CANKLES” the pantsuit wearing PIG.

  • Zaphod Braden

    She is a God Damned THIEF and TRAITOR with zero talent, who has screwed up international affairs to high heaven and branded America as a MURDEROUS Monster —
    Her ENTIRE CAMPAIGN is based on BIGOTED SEXISM and “WHITE FEMALE PRIVILEGE ENTITLEMENT”. Hillary’s only argument for election is “I am Hillary Clinton I have a VAGINA and I am ENTITLED” Yet while demanding Feminism support HER, she’s the most berated, humiliated, degraded and abused wife of them all!!! And she still, “…stands by her man”! What an insult to feminist of the world!!!No programs or ideas …. she even BRAGS she is not able to comprehend MODERN TECHNOLOGY ….. how could she be president when she cannot understand technology? THEN this “feminist” plays the “I am just a SILLY LITTLE GIRL” card …… —– If you LIKE BIGOTRY vote for Hitlery ———

  • windsor1

    It’s not Hillary that worries me; it is the number of voters who would support her with all that she and Bill have done. She is the true personification of evil. Will be interesting if the Secret Service Agent’s book coming out at the end of June will wake anyone up or will he be suicided like Vince Foster and others.

    • mushypea

      I so agree! I cannot believe the number of people that have voted for her and continue to support her when most of her crimes and vile behavior are well documented and known. Do they really not care or are they as despicable and crooked as her?

      • mary

        Oh come on. It’s time for woman president, don’t ya know.

      • rahrog

        Excellent point windsor1. I think most folks understand Clinton for the sick freak she is. How in the world does anyone vote for that? The mindless drones are more frightening than these scumbag mass murderers like Clinton, and Bush, and Obama, and ……….

  • Put her on a helicopter flight out over the Atlantic, strip her biff naked and throw her out the door from 4000 feet up.
    Problem solved.

    • Let’s not suggest violence please, even if you are exaggerating for effect. Make comments not threats.

      • .M.

        Noble enough, to spare the blood of patriots?

      • apberusdisvet

        I prefer the violent methods of execution for Treason. Exposure of covert operatives through non-secure emails, pay-for-play quid pro quo for State Department favors, are certainly sufficient for an indictment of Treason, with the death penalty a given.

  • Me_Again

    Last week the bell was sure she was going down and would not be the Democratic nominee. This was due to interpretation of MSM headlines and the thought that it was a calculated take down to prepare for the real candidate.

    What happened? I blinked and missed something…..must have.

    • It was an observation, not a prediction.

      • Me_Again

        Well it was an observation enough that anyone reading that article could be forgiven for thinking it was a prediction.
        Loads about how the media is merely an indicator of the desires of TPTB.
        Had me believing ……

        • Ernie Hopkins

          I think DB may yet be right on their observations. The fact MSM acknowledges her having problems and is trying to “redirect” the issues surrounding her vs their previous walk on water treatment of her is a huge change. I am not so sure she is the “heir” apparent from emperor Obummer, or that he even plans to relinquish power.

  • L Garou

    Disliked is the understatement of the new century, so far..

  • alaska3636

    Hillary isn’t just a worthless, rent-seeking politician; she used to be a worthless, rent-seeking Governor’s wife and cattle futures trader.

    If the elite indeed select politicians for their checkered past, making them more controllable, than Hillary is a crackerjack prize.

    Imagine if Trump had the same kind of past. Would there ever have been the Apprentice?

  • Heywood Jablome

    lets not pussyfoot around the issue, this harridan is a sociopathic pathological liar, and most likely a practised criminal, and her sociopathic husband and daughter are enablers, supported by a cheerleading msm

  • knifemare69

    “In fact, she isn’t disliked for what she’s done. She is disliked for “who she is.””

    THAT is the BIGGEST LIE of the entire article; Hillary is disliked BECAUSE of what she has done:

    1) Pushed for the bombing of Kosovo and Serbia
    2) Pushed to exterminate the Branch Davidians at Waco
    3) Pushed to bomb Libya, killing over 30,000
    4) Pushed to overthrow the democratically elected government of Ukraine, killing over 10,000
    5) Pushed to overthrow the democratically elected government of Honduras, killing several thousand
    6) Pushed to arm and fund cannibal jihadis in Syria, killing over 250,000

    EVERY single whitewash article by the mainstream presstitutes serves to hide Hillary’s hateful record from the public, and is in effect a COLLUSION with her and the powers-that-be to keep the same hateful imperial train rolling…

    • Bill the eighth

      I agree, although I cannot stand for both reasons, because of who she is, a hag with absolutely no redeeming qualities and a career criminal, serial liar and cheat and scum of the lowest order.

  • Vlad TheSkewerer

    She has sold out the Deep State and those people don’t play.

  • Praetor

    The U.S. has turned into weirdoville. All that the article says is true, and everything the commenters of discontent have said is true! Hillary Rodham Clinton will be the democrat parties nominee for president and this is what makes this country weirdoville, the republican party also want a Clinton president. DB, there will be a civil war if Clinton is president. It will prove that the country is no longer a government of ‘we the people by the people’. It will be official. The fed gov has become a criminal enterprise.

    • Pilgrim

      You mean it will be a worse criminal enterprise than it is now.

  • Bruce C.

    I honestly don’t think Hillary will be elected President.

  • No Thanks

    Someone who gloats over corpses is one step closer to ordering death by drone strike, disappearances, and torture.

  • James Clander

    You Americans definitely need to vote for ANYONE but Clinton !

    • Pilgrim

      That is the “ABC”s of proper voting.

  • ThomasJK

    Hillary is a regressive fascist.

  • jhnjul

    Voters got a surprise for her in November. When they lay a landslide right on top of her.

  • Calcinor Jones

    One can just feel the grip of freedom slipping away. The powers that influence and shape minds into following the great whore of despotism have used every trick in the book to steal America. The tenants of freedom are treading water and like Obama’s “ascent” the mindless drones will rally around the narrative of making history by supporting the opportunity to vote in the first woman president. The hands that feed the beast are too blind to understand that the beast will continue to enslave and violate – discretely and in the guise of well calculated conditioning programs.

    Like Obama’s constituents – they will lament and blame freedom lovers when the results produce rotten fruit (courtesy of both sides of the aisle of course). They will deny colluding with the dysfunction all the while enhancing the dysfunction. Logic and rational thought will be dismissed. Vampires to victim and then reversed in mid-flight based on the news of the day. Americans stripped of thought and reason by think tanks that ask then demand worship of the state and conformity to the absurd.

    So it comes down to this – Trump vs. Hillary. Potential credibility vs. the devil in disguise.

    The Clinton Crime Foundation is “organized crime” at its finest. Take two minutes to carefully read the facts!

    Here is a clear, concise summary of how the Clinton Crime Foundation works as a tax free international money laundering scheme. It may eventually prove to be the largest political criminal enterprise in U.S. history. This is a textbook case on how you hide foreign money sent to you and repackage it to be used for your own purposes. All tax free. Here’s how it works:

    1. You create a separate foreign “charity.” In this case, the Clinton’s set it up in Canada.

    2. Foreign governments and contributors then donate to this Canadian charity. In this case, over 1,000 did — contributing mega millions. I’m sure they did this out of the goodness of their hearts, and expected nothing in return! (Imagine Putin’s buddies waking up one morning and just deciding to send untold millions to a Canadian charity).

    3. The Canadian charity then bundles these separate donations and makes a massive donation to the Clinton Crime Foundation.

    4. The Clinton Crime Foundation and the cooperating Canadian charity claim Canadian law prohibits the identification of individual donors.

    5. The Clinton Crime Foundation then “donates” some of this money for legitimate charities and work programs. Unfortunately, experts believe this is on the order of TEN PERCENT (10%). Much of the balance goes to enrich the Clinton’s expensive, privileged lifestyles, pay the salaries of many ‘staff members’ & hangers on, while funding their lavish travel and expensive spending! Again, virtually tax free, which means you and I are subsidizing it!

    6. The Clinton Crime Foundation, with access to the world’s best accountants, somehow fails to report much of this on their tax filings. They discover these “clerical errors” and begin the process of re-filing 5 years of tax returns!

    7. Net result — foreign money goes into the Clinton’s pockets tax free and untraceable back to the original donor. This is the textbook definition of MONEY LAUNDERING! Oh, by the way, the Canadian “charity” includes as a principal one Frank Giustra. Google him. He is the guy who was central to the formation of Uranium One, the Canadian company that somehow acquired massive U.S. uranium interests and then sold them to an organization controlled by Russia. This transaction required U.S. State Department approval, and guess who was Secretary of State when the approval was granted!

    If you’re still not persuaded this is a CORRUPT and cleverly structured way to get
    unidentified foreign money to the Clinton’s, ask yourself this: Why did these foreign interests funnel money through a Canadian charity? Why not donate money DIRECTLY to the people, organizations and countries in need? This is the essence of money laundering and influence peddling!

    Now you know why Hillary’s destruction of 30,000 e-mails was a risk she was willing to take!

  • No one special

    Anyone who watches “Scandal” understands Hillary’s ambition.

  • OttoZeit

    “…use all the tools at her proposal”?! I can only assume the intention was to communicate “…all the tools at her DISposal.” The staff writers and the proof-readers both need to up their game.

  • Pilgrim

    Article: “she is actually an authoritarian who believes in state power”
    That is an understatement. Hiliary has tasted power and now lusts after the intoxication of power in larger doses. She’s like a heroin addict that must have more and more. Destroying people who get in her way fills her with glee. She gets absolutely giddy when she wins using the authority that comes when her hands are on the levers of power.

    The reason she’s painting Trump as Hitler is because she wants to hide the fact that she is the exact same as Hitler.

    If Hiliary becomes president she’ll make Obama’s abuses of office pale by comparison. Like all sociopaths, she’ll order death and destruction without conscience, not for the sake of the nation, but for her own personal vendettas.

    Herodias had John beheaded when he rebuked Herod for his infidelity. Imagine her as president of the US where 43% of Americans rebuke her of complicity with her husbands rapes, murders, thefts, corruption and treason.

    Hell hath no fury like a woman scorned.

  • MetaCynic

    Someone recently observed that to advance his candidacy, Trump has a knack for pinning labels of ridicule – memes – on his opponents which tend to stick in the public’s mind as he uses them effectively to belittle and discredit. As simple-minded as these memes are, they do have an element of truth to them and can be thought of as negative branding. There was, for example, “Lying Ted” for Cruz. He also had something each for Bush and Rubio. For Hillary there is, appropriately enough, “Crooked Hillary.” So Trump obviously is well aware of Hillary’s criminal enterprises and as the campaign wears on, he will be hammering away relentlessly at this huge vulnerability of hers.
