OpEd by Stu Cvrk

When will we ever be rid of Hillary Clinton? To me (and a significant number of other Americans), she is the personification of “fingernails on a blackboard.” Just as President Trump’s tweets are dog whistles to the legacy media, so too is Hillary Clinton’s continual public blathering to me. While this latest comment of hers is indirect, it rings entirely true to me. According to former Clinton confidant Dick Morris, she claims to believe that “God has destined her to be president of the United States.”

Dick Morris, a former adviser to President Bill Clinton, predicted Sunday that Hillary Clinton will seek any opening she can find to run for the presidency again in 2020.

Morris told New York businessman and broadcaster John Catsimatdis on his Sunday radio show that he’s so sure she’ll find a way because the former first lady believes “God put her on the Earth” to be president.

“My feeling is that she wants to,” Morris said. “She feels entitled to do it. She feels compelled to do it. She feels that God put her on the Earth to do it. But she’s hesitant because she realizes the timing is bad.” Morris, who has been a critic of the Clinton’s since leaving their service as a backroom strategist, believes Hillary is poised to enter the contest at the appropriate juncture and especially if former Vice President Joe Biden calls it quits. Read the rest here.

Is this a reflection of her latest bout of narcissism, hubris, or just plain insanity? In my opinion, it’s more likely that she’s following the Devil’s guidance than God’s in regard to making a third try for the Oval Office. I mean, who else besides Hillary has successfully skated from the hangman after a lifetime grifting and criminality? If that’s not been accomplished through the Devil’s assistance, then nothing has.

For the record, I’ve always believed that she has been planning to enter the 2020 race. She is seething from her loss to President Trump in 2016 and has spent two years making up every excuse imaginable about why she lost. She thought she was owed the job due to past services to the Democrat Party and globalists everywhere. She and they rigged the Democrat primaries, used a classic political stalking horse in Bernie Sanders to demonstrate her “elect-ability,” leveraged the Deep State to illegally investigate her political opponent, used her office of Secretary of State as a pay-for-play mechanism, illegally laundered foreign money through the Clinton Foundation, captured control of state Democrat organizations in 2016 and laundered campaign dollars through them back to her own campaign, and ran perhaps the most inept and lifeless presidential campaign since RINO Mitt Romney’s rollover.

I’m convinced that she still feels entitled to the presidency and is running the same playbook she used in 2016, complete with another “listening tour” and stalking horse. In this case, the stalking horse is Joe Biden. There’s no way in hell that guy is ever going to be the Democrat nominee, as his baggage makes him un-electable. Even the Democrat media have figured that out courtesy of the Ukraine and China corruption and are attacking him ever-so-delicately these days. She has never come to terms with losing in 2016 and will do anything to get back in the game because it’s her lifelong obsession. Biden is the perfect foil; he eats up the airtime and makes it impossible for any other member of the Democrats’ Star Wars bar scene to build any real momentum similar to what Obama was able to accomplish in 2008. When Biden withdraws – as he will almost certainly be forced to do as the Ukraine revelations become more widely known – she will ride to the rescue as the only big-name Democrat able to mount any real challenge to President Trump. She’s got the organization, money, sycophants everywhere including the all-important legacy media, and name recognition, and there are still a large number of Democrat fools who feel that she was “robbed” in 2016 (despite clear evidence to the contrary).

Let’s get back to what she conveniently forgets. Being someone who perfected the “move on” political tactic, she thinks she’s out of the woods on all legal culpability for past actions/perfidy, as she relies on people to forget the past. Maybe so (except for her crimes associated with mishandling classified information), but she’s certainly not out of political jeopardy if voters will be regularly reminded of how she has skated over the years. Here is a chronological list of the more memorable grifts performed by the Clinton’s (especially Hillary) over time: [Note: as the Clinton’s are a team, some of these are Bill/Hillary affairs; she was involved in every one of Bill’s corruption actions.]

  • Cattle futures (1978-9): Hillary as a “commodity trader” (does anyone seriously believe she knows the first thing about commodities trading?)
  • Whitewater: A failed land speculation deal that crashed a large savings and loan association
  • Asia fundraising scandal (1996): The Lincoln bedroom, White House donor coffees and Buddhist monks for cold, hard campaign cash
  • Chinagate (1996-9): Nuclear and technology secrets for campaign cash [Note: how do you think the Chinese caught up to US capabilities in space and in the South China Sea? Bill Clinton gave them a helping hand!]
  • Pardongate (1999-2000): Donations collected as probable motives for presidential pardons [Note: Marc Rich deserves special attention. Rich was an “international financier” and commodities trader known for “making controversial oil deals with Iran during the Iran hostage crisis.” He was pardoned by Clinton for his federal tax evasion charges. It is almost certain that a primary reason for Rich’s pardon was to engage his “money skills” in helping establish the Clinton Foundation in such a way as to “legally” launder mountains of cash, especially from foreign entities. In short, Rich put the Clintons’ grifting on steroids and set up Hillary’s pay-for-play operation while she was Secretary of State.]
  • Their “Golden Tongues” (2000-present): Shocking amounts of money paid for Clintons’ “speeches” [Does anyone seriously believe that what these two have to say is worth a plug nickel?]
  • Foundation favors (2009-2013): The Clinton Foundation was a pay-to-play back door to the State Department (think about Haiti in that regard for starters) http://kutv.com/news/nation-world/new-investigation-into-clinton-foundation-pay-to-play-allegations
  • Swedish slush fund (2009-2013): $26 million collected while Sweden was lobbying Hillary’s State Department to forgo Iran sanctions
  • Boeing bucks (2015): Boeing gave big bucks to Clinton causes after Hillary steered its Russian contract at the State Department
  • Uranium One (2009-10): Millions from Russia through the Clinton Foundation for uranium rights while Hillary was a member of the Committee on Foreign Investment of the United States (CFIUS)
  • Benghazi: Gun-running of Kaddafi’s old weapons stocks to Syria et al (who got that money, anyway?)
  • Haiti: The Clinton Foundation fleeced and laundered Haitian relief funds after the 7.0 earthquake in 2010: https://www.nationalreview.com/2016/07/hillarys-america-secret-history-democratic-party-dinesh-dsouza-clinton-foundation/
  • Finally, the Panama Papers exposed a TON of corruption and international donors to the Clinton Foundation and Clinton Global Initiative.

There are doubtless other grifts, crimes and cover-ups, including the White House Travel Office Debacle, the FBI files, Vince Foster’s suspicious death, and especially her compromise of Top Secret/Sensitive Compartmentalized Information via her unauthorized private email server. Or how about her subversion of the 2016 election courtesy of the Clinton campaign-paid “Steele Dossier” or her campaign’s digging for dirt in Ukraine (foreign collusion if there ever was any!)? The big question going into 2020 is how many of these past transgressions will ever be brought to the attention of Democrat voters during their state primaries? Most of her competition – including Tulsi Gabbard, another stalking horse – will never confront her directly on any of this. Younger Americans under the age of 40 or so have no idea about most of these activities, too, because the legacy media have protected the Clinton’s for years. It is only through the auspices of independent journalists such as those here at UncoverDC that Americans will be reminded that the only way Hillary should ever make it to the Oval Office again is while on a guided tour.
