The Clinton Machine

With a hat tip to TOTUS:

Related article and video...Judge Jeanine: 'Bill & Hillary Clinton Are the Bonnie & Clyde of American Politics' and Many donors to Clinton Foundation met with her at State.

Has American ever before been as plagued by a political machine this corrupt and this Teflon-esque?


  1. Can anyone name any one else that took money in exchange for political favors.
    I can it was a Governor who did. He is currently serving a 14 year term in Federal prison, hint... his last name is ..... Blagovich!
    How can ANYONE in good conscience Vote for Hillary Clinton? After all the lies she's been caught in? After she was caught using her foundation as a diplomatic tool to woo foreign governments and dignitaries into donating money to it? How much mental contortion do you have engage in to justify why you'll vote for her in November? If this sounds like me shaming you for who you're voting for, it does. I'm admonishing you in the strongest possible terms, you know, without sounding like a complete and total IDIOT. I know some very upstanding people who despite their values would vote for a woman who has none. It blows my mind. What in the world are you thinking?
    Well lets start here.... Think about this NEW reverlation: new Abedin Emails Revealed Hillary Clinton State Department Gave Special Access to Top Clinton Foundation Donors!!! SO YOU BELIEVE IT NOW?
    1)Hillary Clinton Lied to congress about turning all of her work related emails to the State Department, and has continued to lie even as 15,000 new work related e-mails were discovered by the FBI today.
    2) Deleted 30,000 (oh wait, lets make that 45,000) e-mails, some with with classified information on them, and then lied about it.
    3) Blamed the Sept 11, 2012 Benghazi terrorist attack on a YouTube video, even when she knew right off the bat that it wasn't because of a video.
    4) Used the Clinton Foundation as a diplomatic tool to woo foreign leaders and dignitaries into donating to it, using Huma Abedin as the middle "man." A textbook case of a "pay for play" scheme.
    5) Snubbed an endorsement by the nation's largest police union.
    6) Responded to her inability to visit the flood victims in Louisiana by saying "I will come when the time is appropriate." (What does that even mean?)
    So, after reading through all of that, what disturbs you more? Which candidate disturbs you more? How does one try to equate Trump's comments and actions to the her clear criminal activity and outright lies? This is a woman running for president who said she "would come when the time is appropriate" in regards to the flood victims in Louisiana. For all of Trump's flaws as a man and a candidate, he took the time out of his campaign at least HE sent a fully laden 18 wheel tractor trailer with supplies, at his own expense to the flood victims in Louisiana.
    So how, in good conscience, can you vote for Hillary Clinton? I can put up with Trump's behavior because none of detestable as with Madam Hillary! , NONE of it t rises to the loathsome, despicable, detestable, level of Hillary Clinton.
    Hillary Clinton level. Any well informed voter would be able to understand that what she did was endanger our national security and abuse her power as Secretary of State . It bothers me that there are people out there who are still going to vote for her despite all of that.) Has gone 262 days without a press conference (as of today).
    EVEN Comey said she lied every time she spoke about her emails.

    1. To my knowledge, Blagojevich was a corrupt individual, not a sophisticated political machine.

    2. Blagojevich resides in a Federal Pen about 2 miles from where I live. There's plenty of room there for Shrillary and a good ol' Chicago reunion!

    3. BTW, the last time I drove by I seem to remember seeing a big VACANCY sign right at the entrance!

  2. Hillary has committed abuse of official capacity on large scale. She put a "For Sale" sign on our Department of State.
    She needs to be placed under house arrest until a real investigation and trial can ensue. She has compromised the Republic.

    Only Trump will have the willingness to bring the Clintons full circle to account for their crimes and corruption.

  3. Hillary Clinton is dirty.

    She turned the US State Department into a branch office of the Clinton Foundation, complete with concierge services provided by Clinton consigliere Huma Weiner.

    If she's elected, she'll turn the White House into Clinton Foundation Fundraising Headquarters.

  4. The initials "HC" for Hillary Clinton could just as easily stand for Hateful and Corrupt! I strong suspect that Hillary not Bill is the driving force behind the Clinton Foundation. In fact, although many criticize Bill for his philandering acts before and after his Presidency---one can understand his thought process considering the woman he was married too. Without a doubt, Hillary is the mastermind and Bill is just along for the ride. Kind of makes one feel sorry for Bubba! Thanks for the H/T!

  5. The Clinton's didn't invent official corruption; they just dragged it to new lows and dressed it up with the "global charity" business model, which is a barely-dressed up personal-enrichment tax-dodging scam.

    Influence peddling and buying access have been around since the dawn of man and were present even in primitive tribal structures.

    It's a sign of the times that this would have sunk an ordinary candidate only a decade ago, and a Trump never would have even cracked single digits in the primaries.

    We are witnessing the polished marble facades falling off of our political system. The only thing that save the Democrat Party is the old saw, "In the land of the blind, the one-eyed man is king."

    1. SF,
      We are witnessing the polished marble facades falling off of our political system.

      Aren't we, though?

  6. Clinton is a deeply flawed candidate indeed.
    However, you don't make inroads against her with the yammering of the likes of a shrew like Jeanine Pirro.

    This is the same strategy you tried against Obama.
    I'm waiting for Pirro to ask to see Clinton's birth certificate.

    1. I agree...that shrew is loved by many but I can't listen to her anymore. It's not "our" strategy, it's her personality.

      Ducky, what Conservative do you think realistically could have beat Hillary, particularly after all the flaws are coming to light so brightly lately?

    2. I think that is the question of the day, Z.

      The criticism of Clinton (deserved) is coming from (I don't know how else to say it) the shrill far right media.
      They are simply screaming to the choir and not going to have any effect.

      Compound that with the fact that Trump himself is the most polarizing candidate we've seen in my lifetime and Clinton skates.

      Is there a conservative who could defeat Clinton? I don't know.
      If it were me I'd give Kasich a shot.

    3. The "shrill far right media?" Who would that be?

    4. Go check out (m)Ann Coulter's latest or better yet spend some time listening to Talent on Loan from Synthetic Morphine.

      May give you some insight why the Republican Party has become such a dumpster fire.

    5. Z... who could be Hillary? It's a great question. I think the GOP needed an outsider who seemed sane. Trump is not that. Does he seem like Presidential timber to anyone here? I'm not asking if he can do the job, nor am I saying HRC is either. I am just asking about him. When you think of Trump, can you see him as a statesman? Does he bring honor, or can you see him bringing honor to America?

      I was not a big fan of Reagan, but he did do that. As did, in my opinion JFK and Ike.

      Who from either party fits that bill? on the GOP side, maybe Kasich. I liked him and would have voted for him. I am not a fan of all his policies, but I respect him. Joe Scarborough. He's another who maybe could fill that role.

      In my opinion, the GOP should have gone hat in hand and drafted Condaleeza Rice. She'd have co-opted the female vote and part of the African American vote. And while she made some mistakes with the Bush Admin, she's have been tough to beat.

      But that's the issue. Who wants to run and get the crap beat out of them? Romney was a good man and the Dems made it personal, like the GOP has done over the years to Dem candidates.

      We've got a lousy system. It's a last man standing system.

      I'm with Silvers idea... maybe a parliamentary system is better. It seems to be the only democratic system around the world that is consistently working.

      My two cents...

    6. You could be right....Joe Scarborough? Dave, nobody could stoop that low, you're joking, right? The man with his finger in the wind?
      And do you think Hillary will bring honor to America with all that's said about her?

      The Left would have destroyed Condi Rice...no way she had a chance, but she was an excellent candidate, you're right.

      Maybe Parliament is a better idea....how very sad. We're back to King George again? (smile)

    7. Z: This is why such discussions with Democrats are a worthless waste of time.

      Remember, these are the same people who engaged in flagrant virtue-signalling by claiming they loved to "Feel the Bern," knowing damn good and well ol' Bernie would be under Hellary's Tank tracks before the convention.

      These are the hard-core Democrats who love to tell the GOP which candidates it should run, but the Hillary Democrats positing such candidates would never in a million years vote for any of them.

      The Ducky-types love to bring up Kasich, because they know he's too polite to fight dirty against the corrupt Clinton Fear and Smear Machine. Kasich would sit there in his grandfather sweater, smile and go down losing to another Dirty Democrat the good ol' GOP way.

      Condoleezza Rice disqualified herself with her serial Bush-Cheney bungling and gratuitous, inept warmongering. Anybody remember how she was supposed to be an 'expert' on Russia? How the hell did that work out?

      As I said in another comment, we are witnessing the polished marble facades falling off of our political system. Ugly, ain't it?

    8. SF, it's clear to me that the biggest problem is that each party feels it know what's right for America, but one party hasn't a clue about its history and what made it great, and what sustained that greatness..UNTIL entitlements became the end goal. And our greatness has dwindled since we became more into what we can GET from it than what we can DO for it, like staying as personally self reliant as possible, lifting her up instead of apologizing for her and teaching only her negatives to our kids, discontinuing history in lieu of teaching GREEN and anti-bullying ....bringing in immigrants breaking the law even as they enter, to say nothing of what happens after they're in....and celebrating idiocies like Sanctuary Cities! etc etc etc.

      The Right tries so hard to point out that running ourselves down helps no one...that destroying our borders, and a media so blatantly in the tank for one party, etc., are so unhealthy for a country like America; all those things which made people want to get here and celebrate becoming a citizen are gone!

      By the way, I don't think we can blame Condi Rice about Russia, since one can barely depend on Russia doing anything that's expected they'd do...they're mercurial and smarter than we are, particularly now that they know this president's so weak they can pretty much do anything.

      Kasich; He's a wimp from the get-go...and he showed that in Ohio during the RNC convention.

    9. To Clarify: I mean these things "discontinuing history in lieu of teaching GREEN and anti-bullying ....bringing in immigrants breaking the law even as they enter, to say nothing of what happens after they're in....and celebrating idiocies like Sanctuary Cities! etc etc etc." as things we should NOT CONTINUE DOING.

    10. And we should give a Crap about anything that Dave Miller says... Why?

  7. I find this getting more and more depressing. Is everyone out there sleep walking?

    1. sleep walking and blogging and almost over still hoping for the best.

  8. Rush said recently that the Clintons have earned as much as a half a million dollars for a single speech, and have done this numerous times. It appears probable that these exorbitant "speaking" fees are a ruse to hide bribes, payoffs and political contributions. Either that or people just love to hear Hillary's really boring speeches.. The texts of these speeches have not been made public.

    1. Wouldn't you just THINK even the Left would be curious about how anybody could get THAT MUCH MONEY FOR A SPEECH?

    2. That's been known for years, Stogie. Surprised Talent on Loan from Synthetic Morphine is just getting around to it. He's really slowing down.

      Yeah, and the payments went directly to them not the foundation. So there is real corruption ll around them but my fringe right brethren focus on Jeanine Pirro running at the mouth about the AP non story (wow, Elie Wiesel had a meeting with Clinton, real smoking gun).

      As long as you listen to these low functioning gorgons you'll miss the real issues.

    3. Duck,
      The meetings that Clinton held involved a lot more than Elie Wiesel.

      As far as the fringe right goes, anyone to the right of Trotsky is fringe right as far as you're concerned.

    4. Stogie,
      HRC's speeches are real yawners!

  9. If people would just see the real Hillary. Seeing everything, the corruption she is involved in. How could any one vote for her for anything, let along President of The United States. Don't vote for her because she could be the first woman president. Look at her past to see how corrupt she is. She should be in jail.

  10. Do you have sticky H1-B visa problems requiring State intervention? Are you seeking to merge your foreign enterprise with a major US corporation? You could probably stand to use our help...

  11. According to the New York Post, newly released emails show an exchange between Hillary and her top aide, Huma Abedin, in 2009, and Hillary refused to take a “burdensome” commercial flight into Washington from New York City. Apparently, she wasn’t feeling too well back then, and rather than travel like a peasant she wanted first-class service from the Air Force instead.

    “Do you think we could get a plane for Westchester flight back tonight?” Hillary said in an email that was released by Judicial Watch.


    1. @ Tom,
      "Seeing everything, the corruption she is involved in. How could any one vote for her for anything"

      Sadly, my friend, we live in a society wherein many will tolerate corruption in order to receive government largess, never realizing the ultimate price [they] will someday pay for their lack of foresight.

    2. Jon,
      we live in a society wherein many will tolerate corruption in order to receive government largess...

      The electorate's version of pay-to-play.

  12. Benghazi….C’mon, even the leaders of the 7 GOP led investigations admitted it was a political witch hunt. And the 13 embassies attacked under Bush where 60 died and never investigated? http://www.huffingtonpost.com/entry/hillary-clinton-benghazi-investigation_us_561ef9eae4b0c5a1ce62037e

    Lost emails….get her! after you get Bush for the 22million emails he lost. This, after he started an illegal war based on lies which killed hundreds of thousands, created ISIS,destroyed the economy while the wealthy got richer.

    Clinton Foundation….Nice try: “State Department: 'No Impropriety' in Contacts With Clinton Foundation; 'The Way the Process Works’”

  13. To A Muthah We Know Too Well

    Hating you for many’s now a hobby ––
    Incisive, bossy, proud iconoclast.
    Lusting after power, you may lobby
    Loudly for the the poor –– the lowest caste ––
    Amassed applauding at the Polling Gate.
    Railing at the Rich, you grab their gold.
    You would have us be Slaves of the State
    Cheering as our lives become controlled ––
    Lost –– in endless snarls of Red Tape.
    Inventiveness to you should harnessed be
    Not to bring fulfillment, but to rape
    The profit from creative energy.
    O, Self-Appointed Goddess of the Ill,
    No one can afford to pay your Bill!

    PROPHETIC, wasn't it? };*)>

  14. Dave's definition and test of "sanity" is wholesale acceptance of the liberal ideological narrative. No conservative can EVER meet his "test", by definition.

    1. GADFLY (WIKI)

      A person who interferes the status quo of a society or community by posing novel, potently upsetting questions, usually directed at authorities. The term is originally associated with the ancient Greek philosopher Socrates, in his defense when on trial for his life.


      The term "gadfly" was used by Plato in the Apology[2] to describe Socrates's relationship as an uncomfortable goad to the Athenian political scene, which he compared to a slow and dimwitted horse.

      During his defense when on trial for his life, Socrates, according to Plato, pointed out that dissent, like the gadfly, was easy to swat, but the cost to society of silencing individuals who were irritating could be very high: "If you kill a man like me, you will injure yourselves more than you will injure me" because his role was that of a gadfly, "to sting people and whip them into a fury, all in the service of truth." This may have been one of the earliest descriptions of gadfly ethics.


      Jeremiah uses a similar analogy as a political metaphor: "Egypt is a very fair heifer; the gad-fly cometh, it cometh from the north" ( Jeremiah 46:20, Darby Bible).

      Modern Politics

      A gadfly is someone who persistently challenges people in positions of power, the status quo or a popular position. For example, Morris Kline wrote, "There is a function for the gadfly who poses questions that many specialists would like to overlook. Polemics are healthy."

      "Gadfly" may be used in a pejorative sense or be accepted as a description of honourable work or civic duty.

      Does this remind you of anyone you know here in the blogosphere? };^)>

      What the WIKI article fails to mention is the all-too-frequent presence of fractious, disputatious individuals who love to play the role of "gadfly" –– NOT in pursuit of "Truth," but rather as a personal Power Fetish to make themselves feel '"important, " and to indulge their passion for being a ROYAL PAIN-in-the-ARSE.

  15. Wouldn't it be loverly if the twin careers of Klintona the Kackling Krook and her Konsort in Krime and Korruption were brought to an ignominious end in the same manner as that of Bonnie and Clyde?



  16. It's getting deeper and deeper:

    Hillary Clinton KNEW her aides were working with family foundation despite her pledge not to – and she even hosted dinner at her home for the charity when in office

    One very interesting paragraph that reveals the sliminess of the Clintons:

    ...While Clinton signed an ethics agreement saying she would not be personally involved with State Department matters related to the Clinton Foundation, her closest staffers were bound by no such restrictions...

    The Clintons make Richard Nixon look like a piker!

    1. RICHARD M. NIXON was a MARTYRED SAINT who was taken down by The Devil Incarnate. His only "sin" was his incredible naiveté about the potency of the EVIL that was determined to bring both HIM and our COUNTRY down into The Pit.

      The great irony of the Nixon Tragedy lay in his dogged determination to destroy the very forces that eventually destroyed him. Even though he fought them very effectively tooth and nail, he greatly underestimated their immense, ungodly strength.

    2. FT,
      I deliberately used the example of RMN because the majority of people today believe that he was a villain.

      I do not regard him as a saint OR a villain.

    3. You were too young to understand the true significance of "WATERGATE," AOW. It was a journalistic coup d'etat that pushed the ENEMEDIA into the position of TOP DAWG in the echelon of America's Ruling Class.

      After Watergate every politician has had either to brown nose the enemedia while scarfing down every bit of excrement they dish up or accept being SNUFFED OUT by their immense, illegitimate power, which, apparently, no one can call to account.

      The USURPATION of LEGITIMATE POWER by the ENEMEDIA was the purpose and true significance of "WATERGATE."

      Richard M. Nixon, hated obsessively by the jackals of the press because of his energetic anti-Communist initiatives, made a handy target for corrupt, INCURSIVE, power-mad journalists led by the reeking oligarchs who ran the Washington Post –– Katharine MEYER Graham, Ben Bradlee, his WHORE wife Sally Quinn, and their butt-licking lackeys Bob Woodward and Carl Bernstein.

      Richard Nixon was an INNOCENT, if hopelessly NAIVE, victim of URINALISM at its unprecedented worst.

      I REPEAT:

      NIXON was a MARTYRED SAINT –– a Sacrificial Lamb to the demonic ambitions of a BASTARD Press Corps run amok.

    4. FT,
      I wasn't too young in 1972. But I wasn't at all interested in politics.

      Mr. AOW and I got married on Watergate Break-in Day: June 17, 1972.

      From what I understand about RMN, he should have destroyed the WH tapes before they were subpoenaed.

  17. The stench of corruption around the Clintons is thicker than flies on a dung pile. Democrat voters are going to have to resort to closing their eyes and ears and pinching off their nostrils with clothespins.


  18. Wait?

    Hillary Clinton is the mastermind of a criminal enterprise AND brain damaged?

    1. Yes, Thought Criminal, and she was a lesbian who killed her hetero lover Vince Foster.

    2. Yeah, like Charles Manson. She's got the same stare. Criminally insane, man. Like wow!

    3. He is a man of good birth and excellent education, endowed by nature with a phenomenal mathematical faculty. At the age of twenty-one he wrote a treatise upon the binomial theorem which has had a European vogue. On the strength of it, he won the mathematical chair at one of our smaller universities, and had, to all appearances, a most brilliant career before him. But the man had hereditary tendencies of the most diabolical kind. A criminal strain ran in his blood, which, instead of being modified, was increased and rendered infinitely more dangerous by his extraordinary mental powers. Dark rumours gathered round him in the University town, and eventually he was compelled to resign his chair and come down to London. He is the Napoleon of crime, Watson. He is the organiser of half that is evil and of nearly all that is undetected in this great city...

      — Holmes, "The Final Problem"

  19. This is the Chicago Way. Still goes on there. Want that patronage job? Contribute every month out of your paycheck to the candidate who secured it for you. Widespread, open corruption. Tammany Hall until the Little Flower came along. Not much daylight between Hillary and Boss Tweed. Except SHE'S taken it to an international level and sold her country.

    Look, they're running a Racket, and Bill's the bag man. What makes HIS speeches worth a half mil? Selling 30%+ of US uranium reserves to Putin. Bill gave TWO speeches in Moscow that same week and got BIG bucks for them. I forget if it were a million total, or a million each.

    1. Baysider,
      SHE'S taken it to an international level and sold her country.

      Pay to play on the globalism level.


  20. The news that Benghazi docs are in the deleted Clinton emails was contained in an August 23 court filing in a Freedom of Information Act case about the 2012 Benghazi terror attack filed by Judicial Watch.

  21. Hillary will never see the inside of a jail cell. No president or presidential candidate has ever seen jail time. It just isn't going to happen people. UNLESS ?????
    One never can tell.
    We've seen the first Blsck Ptesident, haven't we???

  22. The heart of the matter with Huma Abediin's involvement with an organization founded by a man named Abdullah Omar Naseef, a Saudi official who spent decades involved with organizations which would go on to be designated for engaging in terror finance.

    Here’s what you need to know:

    1. Huma Abedin and terror-funder Abdullah Omar Naseef are directly connected.

    This isn’t six degrees of Kevin Bacon. Huma Abedin served as the associate editor of the Journal of Muslim Minority Affairs for 12 years from 1996-2008, and appeared on the masthead of the organization’s journal right up until the time she began to work at the State Department for Hillary Clinton. This included the time she was working as an intern for Hillary Clinton at the White House. Nassef held the position of Chairman of the Institute of Muslim Minority Affairs. Huma Abedin and Naseef overlapped at IMMA for a period of seven years. As former federal prosecutor Andrew McCarthy noted, “the journal was the IMMA’s raison d’etre.”

    1. It fascinates me that this Abedin, from a devout Muslim family, and who's worked for Muslim affairs, married Anthony Wiener...fascinating.

    2. It fascinates me that this Abedin, from a devout Muslim family, and who's worked for Muslim affairs, married Anthony Wiener...fascinating.

    3. She obviously has a need to be "close" to power, as she married a sitting Congressman. Her agenda?

  23. I'snt it amazing how the hypicritical left pride themselves on being the guarding of the First Amendment,yet not when it comes to opposing views that threaten their augments.
