21 January 2017. Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton was sworn in as the 45th President of the United States yesterday on a Bible she's never read, taking an oath she's taken twice before and never honored. She has no intention of honoring it this time, either. Oaths mean nothing to a Clinton; they are simply a formality, a tradition they are expected to follow as part of the charade involved in gaining more influence, power, and money. The ultimate goal is now as it has always been for a Clinton: To occupy positions of power in order to enrich themselves and consolidate the dynastic influence of the Clinton crime family.
On 5 July 2016, when Mrs. Clinton was the presumptive Democrat nominee for the office, FBI Director James Comey announced that his bureau would not recommend Attorney General Loretta Lynch indict Clinton. This, even as he spelled out with extreme clarity the multiple offenses she had clearly committed against the United States in her 4-year term as the nation's top diplomat. I will leave Mr. Comey's cowardly failure to fulfill the responsibilities of his office for others to address as and if they choose. Law enforcement is not my bailiwick.
I will also assume you, dear reader, are familiar with the myriad transgressions Secretary Clinton allegedly committed on behalf of her family's 'charitable' Foundation while serving in the office once occupied by Thomas Jefferson and the primary department responsible for shaping and carrying out U.S. foreign policy.
The purview of Director Comey's investigation included Secretary Clinton's use of an unauthorized and illegal computer system physically residing at her place of residence in Chappaqua, New York and administered in part by a private-sector company in Denver, Colorado. Clinton conducted all of her official business while occupying the office of Secretary of State using this unsecure and privately administered system. She has insisted on multiple occasions that since there were U.S. Secret Service personnel watching over her residence, no one could possibly have gained access to the information stored on or transferred via her unauthorized home computer. Apparently she believes that physical access is required to intercept data from a networked computer system connected to the open World Wide Web. I'll leave any thoughts on that to your judgment.
Hillary Clinton is also a primary stakeholder in the Bill, Hillary & Chelsea Clinton Foundation. The Foundation is ostensibly a charitable activity operated by or on behalf of Hillary, her husband (former U.S. president William Jefferson “Bill” Clinton), and their daughter Chelsea Clinton. This Foundation became far more well endowed during Mrs. Clinton's term as Secretary of State, apparently in large part due to the Secretary acting in her official capacity to grant or withhold the favor of the United States based on the donations of foreign government activities. Essentially, Clinton sold the country out for the basest of reasons: Remuneration. That's right. Mere money.
In spring of 2017, the notional government of Libya, one of Secretary Clinton's main policy failures back in 2011-2012, insists via diplomatic channels (and reported by interested media, though not the typical mainstream media channels) that the United States provide military and intelligence resources to assist in consolidating its power over the country. President Clinton balks, as it would point up her failures in that region even more glaringly than history already has. Days later, the president is informed via back channels that if she refuses to provide the materials and personnel needed to help Libyan oligarchs to consolidate their power over the important north African state, information concerning the Foundation's dubious activities in Haiti, where the Clintons committed fraudulent activities and added an estimated $200 million to the family coffers will be released to the international media and allies' foreign offices.
The president announces in a press conference the next afternoon that the United States will send 2,000 Army Special Forces troops to Libya to 'advise' the Libyans and help the government consolidate its control and authority in the country. Also, AFRICOM will dedicate a 40-person unit in its J2 (Intel) division to assisting with the effort to help the Libyans gain control. Two Air Force Reserve units are activated to help man up AFRICOM's intelligence activity.
Later in summer 2017, China announces it intends to defend the entire western Pacific out to 500 nautical miles from her coasts as her own waters. An ADIZ (Air Defense Identification Zone) will be established to protect this vast area as well. President Clinton, via her ambassador, tells the United Nations that this is unacceptable and the United States will not accept such an unprecedented encroachment on unincorporated territory (and several sovereign nations who are US allies) by the increasingly aggressive communist state. Clinton sends her Secretary of State, Sidney Blumenthal, to Beijing to negotiate a compromise on the outrageous demands. Blumenthal has his diplomatic visa revoked upon disembarking from his conveyance, and the Chinese premier announces he will be held until further notice on obscure charges of espionage. Meanwhile, the Chinese ambassador in Washington D.C. sends a secret missive to the White House: Acquiesce to the 500-mile zone or Blumenthal will never see U.S. soil again. Oh, and take all U.S. forces off the Korean peninsula, too. Of course, Clinton again refuses. At first. But after receiving word that China intends to expose the illicit contributions Mrs. Clinton's family Foundation accepted from Vladimir Putin's Russia in exchange for 20 percent of America's uranium resources, she again concedes. All troops are to be removed from the Peninsula by the end of 2018, and America agrees not to patrol the western Pacific Ocean with 'air-breathing' resources.
Then Vladimir Putin called...
The embattled, humiliated, and utterly ineffective president has woven many webs in her quest for vast riches and unprecedented power. How that web unraveling might affect her presidency and whether the United States can survive such a disastrous series of events are issues I will leave for another time.
If Hillary Clinton becomes president of the United States, none of this may happen. But I wouldn't bet against it, were I a betting man.
For what it might be worth, Chelsea Clinton turned 36 in 2016. And the beat goes on.
Just a gaggle of people from all over who have similar interests and loud opinions mixed with a dose of humor. We met on Twitter.
