One Week Out

With seven days to go until the election, the walls of Festung Clinton are beginning to collapse. The FBI disclosure by James Comey has the campaign furiously denouncing the same man they praised so highly back in July. Clinton mole Donna Brazile is out at CNN for helping Mrs. Clinton cheat on the debates. The stinking pall of corruption surrounding the Clintons and the Democratic Party blackens the sky.

Writing at the blog MANSIZEDTARGET, however, Roman Dmowski argues that even if none of this were so, it wouldn’t matter. We read:

Hillary touts her skill within the system as a qualification, which Trump has dismissed as “bad experience.” She is experienced no doubt, and her experience coupled with her venality and penchant for secrecy is what brought about this entire email situation. But the claim of experience has an additional flaw. While she is clearly of low character, even if she were honest and authentic–like Bernie Sanders or Dennis Kucinich for example–it would not matter.

The goals she aims to achieve are bad ones.

She is hostile to the historic American people, our limited government traditions, our traditional distaste with empire, our desire for a less intrusive government, our unplanned and spontaneous and natural approach to family life, among other things. She is a leftist. And her experience and political skill, such as it is, recommends against her rather than in her favor, because the better she can accomplish her goals, the more we collectively suffer.

Mr. Dmowski makes the point I’ve been making here for years (and that many others, of course, have made as well): that the ideological disagreement in America — so often represented by the Democrats as their side simply wanting to do “what works”, in contrast to the “ideological” obstinacy of the Right) — is at bottom a question of what we want done in the first place. The most fundamental consideration in this election, then, is a matter not of qualifications or experience or competence or even character, but basic premises about our vision of the American nation and culture, and of the proper role of government.

He continues (my emphasis):

The appeal to experience by those in the middle is quaint and wrong-headed. There is no abstract notion of good government in an ideological age. We’re not running a homeowners association or a village deciding to pave with concrete or asphalt. What each side wants to do is quite different. While the GOP’s steady decline as an institution of conservatism masks this, the Trump campaign highlights the issues in full relief. She wants to take our guns, she wants to tax us into oblivion, she wants to flood us with hostile foreigners, she wants government run by people like her to run our lives, she wants neighborhood bakers and schools harassed into accepting transexual mental health sufferers, she wants eight month unborn children to be aborted without any impediment, she wants black criminals elevated above hard-working police, she wants us all dependent on an ever-growing and more intrusive government, and the better she is able to do any of these things, the worse off we are individually and collectively.

In a healthy society, the appeal to experience might have some weight. It has some value in local and even state elections, where the good is conceived less ideologically and more practically in terms of efficiency in bringing about noncontroversial government goods like public safety and public works. But, particularly on a national level and cultural level, we are under attack by a hostile ideology and increasingly our identity itself is under assault by social engineering writ large in the form of mass immigration. But perhaps her manifest public corruption and criminality would give pause to those who think her experience is some kind of virtue. But whether virtue limiting her ambition or vice furthering her designs, it is the leftist content of those designs that chiefly disqualifies her from the presidency.

Yes, Mrs. Clinton is in many ways a very capable woman. But, given her aims:

Like a trained assassin, her abilities and experience are to be feared.

Thank you, Director Comey, for making it, perhaps, just a little less likely that Hillary Clinton, or her husband, will ever again enter the Oval Office. Better late than never.

  1. The liberal media is busily trying to backburner the Huma Abedin email hoarding story and change the subject to Trump/Russian connections, FBI unfair double standard (Hillary victim meme), and anything bad they can throw out about Trump.

    Being a #NeverTrump and #NeverHillary, I find both of them threats to our republic, albeit in different ways. This new tiny sliver of information, tens of thousands of email/approx. 650,000 emails/on unsecured laptop, sent chills down my spine.

    The FBI hasn’t given us details, but the FBI office in NY has been analyzing the metadata from the reported approximately 650,000 emails they found on this Weiner/Abedin family laptop.

    What we already know is Abedin lied repeatedly to the FBI during her interview.

    The media, Trump, political pundits, and politicians get sucked into these soap opera optics on everything, rather than following the money and the fact patterns. Abedin, like her boss, is a incessant liar (yes, Trump is a liar too, but for the moment I want to lay out some facts on Abedin).

    * Abedin told FBI she had no knowledge of the Clinton server until it broke in the news last year. Justin Cooper told FBI that Abedin recommended Bryan Pagliano, the Hillary campaign IT guy, to set-up the new server to replace Bill Clinton’s original Apple server, which Cooper had set-up. Pagliano also told FBI that Abedin put him in touch with Cooper.

    *Abedin is only aide with a clintonemail address on the Clinton server. In fact, the only other email accounts on that server belong to Bill & Hillary Clinton (per FBI Notes). Malcolm would know more details, but from pedestrian reading, email accounts can allow an avenue into a computer system for hackers (or hostile foreign intelligence).

    * We also know she and her family have close ties to the Muslim Brotherhood and in a sane world, under rational security protocols, she would never have passed a security background check. We are at war with radical Islamists and MB funds radical Islamists – it is that cut and dried. Abedin told FBI she was given a top secret clearance, but told FBI she did not remember ever being read into SAP clearance. The Clintons (and probably Obama too) waived security background checks often in the 90s to allow their cronies to work in the administration. These cronies were people who would not pass a formal security background check, meaning they were SECURITY RISKS. The FBI should find out if Abedin ever underwent a security background check or if Hillary pulled strings and had that requirement waived.

    *Justin Cooper, Bill Clinton’s aide, told the FBI that Abedin controlled the operations of the SCIF in the Chappaqua house, which means she had access to all of classified information coming to that SCIF.

    *Abedin told the FBI she turned over all her electronic devices used in her work at the State Department and all of the emails in her possession. This laptop proves that was a lie. Those emails got to the laptop, because she either set-up backing up her email to that laptop or she manually sent them to that laptop. Those emails were not magically teleported to that laptop.

    *The FBI showed Huma Abedin an email that used a pseudonym, which belonged to President Obama. Abedin asked how that could not be classified and then asked if she could have copy ( really she did – FBI Notes – page 93). She wanted a copy of an email, between President Obama and Hillary, which she believed should be classified??? Guess she just wanted to add to her home hoard of sensitive American information… or wanted to add it, as a rider, to her insurance policy

    So the poor, innocent Huma act is getting old. She was hoarding State Department information on an unsecured laptop, which she shared with Weiner, who has a sexting habit, had his social media accounts hacked and probably was accessing a lot porn sites, prone to hacking too. Every bit of information she was hoarding could have been hacked or the metadata might indicate some strange forwarding addressees, which alone could ignite major national security red flags among experienced FBI investigators.

    Malcolm hit on the whole cesspool that is the Clintonworld – the corrupt media collusion, the corrupt pay-to-play deals, the corrupt flouting of responsible handling of national security information, but with Abedin’s email stash, this might be pointing to ESPIONAGE and if that turns out to be true, Trump might end up being right there too – she has terrible judgment and she should be locked up. I am all for letting the FBI investigate without interference, because this is about more than “Trump or Hillary” or this election. There are Americans in harm’s way whose very live may have been put in jeopardy because of this woman’s unchecked hubris.

    Abedin’s FBI Notes are at the following link, beginning on page 84:
