Hillary's "Honest Mistake"


But a liar? Yes, indeed.

From Clinton's E-Mail Shenanigans Sure Don't Look Like an Honest Mistake of the situation (emphases mine):
...The State Department’s Office of Inspector General has released its report about Hillary Clinton’s use of a private e-mail server while she was secretary of state. The report does not uncover any smoking guns -- no records of Clinton saying “Heh, heh, heh, they’ll never FOIA my e-mails NOW!!!!” -- what it does lay out is deeply troubling. Even though her supporters have already begun the proclamations of “nothing to see here, move along.”

It lays to rest the longtime Clinton defense that this use of a private server was somehow normal and allowed by government rules: It was not normal, and was not allowed by the government rules in place at the time “The Department’s current policy, implemented in 2005, is that normal day-to-day operations should be conducted on an authorized Automated Information System (AIS), which “has the proper level of security control to … ensure confidentiality, integrity, and availability of the resident information.”

It also shreds the defense that “Well, Colin Powell did it too” into very fine dust, and then neatly disposes of the dust. As the report makes very clear, there are substantial differences between what Powell did and what Clinton did...

[...]

It’s really hard to come away from reading this report thinking “Yup, just an honest mistake.” Or indeed, “just a mistake, no big deal.” Or even “no worse than others have done.” I worked in bank IT for several years before I went to business school, and when this story first broke, I enjoyed an amusing hour or so envisioning what regulators would have said if we’d tried any of these sorts of excuses on them. Since then, I’ve had several such conversations with folks who are still laboring in the trenches of the securities industry, and their bitter laughter still rings in my ears. Why is Clinton being held to a lower standard?...

Additional reading (from Bunkerville): Clinton was scrubbing emails since she was first lady. Project X. Meet Laura Callahan.

  1. From this source, commenting on a recent WaPo article:

    [E]very talking point [Hillary surrogate] Schiff is forced to present is wrong. She did not get approval. Her situation is not analogous to Powell’s. She did not turn over the materials voluntarily. And she did not turn over everything.

  2. Feinstein's support of Hillary's lies on the talkies on Sunday were amazing. Feinstein is on the way out. Is it worth corrupting your soul over Hillary's lies? Apparently. Thanks for including my link in your post. How does she get away with all of this? More brazen by the year.

  3. Hillary, Shimary, why don't you talk about the lies of Donald Trump?. Anyone politician or not who endorses , or even supports Trump is endorsing, and supporting racism, bigotry, misogyny, xenophobia, anti-science, anti-environment, ignorance and more. This will be a weight around their necks once it is clear that the majority of Americans reject this narcissistic, attention-seeking deficit disorder fascist, and most of the electorate backs off his dark “telling it like it is” vision for America. It is not hard to predict that many who vote for Trump will deny it in future. The politicians, however, will be on record.

  4. The gathering of evidence and powerful innuendo is likely to be a waste of time, because Klintona the Kackling Krook will never be prosecuted for her many foul misdeeds and flagrant exhibitions of poor judgment.

    I think those of us on the Right know why. Is there any point in our continuing to tilt at windmills in pursuit of a truth no one in power cares to acknowledge?

    I'm very much afraid our hope that the Klinton Korps of Krime and Korruption may yet be held accountable, and thus brought low is destined to be in vain.

  6. "Hillary's honest mistake"? You mean there was a time when Hillary made a mistake and was honest once? I must have missed that one!

  7. Hillary Clinton certainly has her flaws and credibility problems, but compared with Trump, she's a veritable angel! She has be scrupulously fact-checked this presidential race cycle and has come out far, far ahead of Trump in the honesty department.

    Trump has a miserable record for telling the truth, but his supporters don't seem to care. They're angry and out of their minds, willing to elect a proven pathological liar and bully as the leader of the free world to soothe their grievances against the very class that Trump himself belongs to.

  8. I heard Gary Johnson speak on TV the other day and. wow. was he a disaster. He has the Ted Cruz appeal factor, meaning ZERO. Positively creepy. But, that’s just my “woman’s intuition…”

    And unless I’ve just awakened from a “gender reassignment” operation, that I wasn’t aware of, believe me, it’s NOT just “woman’s intuition”. If you ask me he has all of the charisma of a Vampire bat!

    1. I tend to agree –– but only up to a point.

      Gary Johnson's content is excellent, but his style is vile.

  9. She is pathologically afraid of getting caught, hence all the lies, obfuscations, and work to hide ANYTHING she does from scrutiny... This goes all the way back to Arkansas, at the minimum...

  10. Trump used veterans to make himself a hero -- a guy who screwed around with women instead of fighting for his country during the Vietnam war, and then made a joke about it, saying dating was as difficult as fighting in a war. Yeah, the disgusting worm said that. I wonder if my cousin, a U.S. Marine who fought in Vietnam, would agree with pretty boy Trump -- that screwing around with women was as bad as fighting in Vietnam.

    How can anyone in good conscience vote for this despicable fraud? The rabid righties savaged John Kerry --a purple heart recipient in the Vietnam war, but have nothing to say about Donald Trump's contempt for our veterans -- a worm who used our veterans.
    The TGOPers who support Trump have nor core values and are moral cowards, I

    1. A show of things worthy of pride

      Will attract those compelled to deride
      
Any person at all

      Who has more on the ball

      Than those who enjoy being snide.

  11. As Hillary “Crooked “ Clinton the Despicable Pathological Liar nears the point where she will most likely become the Democratic Nominee for President, I intend to spend the rest of the time until the election focused on anything and everything I can to prevent her from winning the Presidency.
    Even though Bernie Sanders (who I think if almost as bad as Hillary) has beat her 53 percent to 47 percent since March 1st, and she has lost 19 of the final 25 state primaries and caucuses; her unfavorable’s are the highest of any Democrat the Party has considered running since the second World War, and she’s losing the independent voters to Donald Trump, and she’s still under investigation by the FBI, and they say that her basement server has definitely been hacked and classified and top-secret data has been stolen... 40 percent of Sanders supporters are saying they WON’T vote for her no matter what!
    Still the democratic party will not back Sanders. There's a lot of talk in Washington that if Hillary were to be indicted, they would put Joe Biden in rather than backing Bernie Sanders.
    But as much as you and I may wish it, Hillary is not going to be indicted. We can hold on to that fantasy to the very end, but it just ain’t gonna happen.

  12. Let's all vote for the disgusting, dishonest and crooked lying Hillary. The donald is way to honest to even compare to the Hilderbeast and Hillary has admitted to lying about a number of things including standing by her slime-ball husband. As a matter of fact both of them are slime so we. could have a field day with her in the White House.
    But I think that the winner for lying goes to Hillary when she had to duck to avoid the sniper fire . And the fact that she supported her slime of a husband who screwed around with every women in sight.

    Or we can Vote The Bern!! And live in sunny Venezuela for the winters.

  15. A bilious temperament may shower
    Many a lush and fragrant bower
    With noxious regurgitation
    Withering blooms and vegetation.
    But roots of every healthy plant
    Remain immune to toxic cant.
    And soon the stench will clear away
    As Beauty returns renewed by Decay.

  16. A Paean to the Goddess of Peons 
    _____ (Who Ain't No Peony) _____

    Hail Hillary, head full of space,
    Ever lacking in charm and grace.

    Hillary, dear, how your red eye gleams
    Inspiring infants to have bad dreams,

    And adults to suffer much churning of guts
    And fears like the death of a thousand cuts

    Hillary! Hillary, full of disgrace
    Your surgically altered, still hideous face

    Inspires much loathing, disgust and dismay
    As does the sound of your Midwestern bray.

    Cursed art thou, and curs'd be the Brute
    Who married you once then produced homely fruit

    As Queen of all that is anti-erotic,
    You favor, instead, what is cruel and despotic.

    Hillary, Goddess of Ethos Collective,
    I hate you so much, I've run out of invective!

  17. ________ Just Say No to Hillary ________

    Voting for Trump might bring pain to your rump,
    But nothing compared to the drama

    Of staying the course for another four years.
    That would be like a latter day Trail of Tears ––

    The fulfillment of very bad Kharma ––
    To support a third term of Obama.

  18. Bill Clinton boosts his lecture fees
    By talking of the birds and bees
    And Hillary's deficiencies
    And how her POTUS run won't please
    E'en though she fights to thwart disease
    In all her sick constituencies.
    Hillary is just a tease
    Whose schemes put no one at his ease.
    We know we can't afford her fees!

  19. _______ "Me And My Server" _______

    
Shades of night are falling and I'm lonely
    
Scheming on the hustings feeling blue
    
Voters wanting fun
Leave me one by one

    Guess I'll wind up like I always do
    
With only



    Me and My Server
    
Opening state secrets to
    
Enemy agents
    
Giving bucks to me not you


    They see me as a rock
    
For them I’m there

    They needn’t knock,
    

For their dreams I share.

    
So, Me and my Server
    
Open doors so they’ll come through
    
And when when we’re so in hock
    
They’ll climb your stairs

    And knock
    

Then liquidate your stock

    
So, me and my server

    Will really put the screws to you.
