Hillary’s Lies

Hillary's Lies

The State Department Inspector General’s Report says Hillary broke the rules by using her home brew email server for official business. Hillary has insisted that her email setup was “allowed by the Stat Department”. It wasn’t. She lied.

Hillary’s Lies

Jonah Goldberg says Hillary’s lies are different than The Donald’s lies. His are spontaneous. Hers are premeditated.

Unlike Donald Trump’s lies, which he usually vomits up spontaneously like a vesuvian geyser, Clinton’s were carefully prepared, typed up, and repeated for all the world to hear over and over again…

Meanwhile, Clinton — who lives many time zones away from the word “entertaining” — is marketing herself as the mature and upstanding grown-up. She does nothing spontaneously. And that means all of her lies are premeditated.

VA Secretary Bob McDonald is ok with long lines.

“When you go to Disney, do they measure the number of hours you wait in line? Or what’s important?” “What’s important is what’s your satisfaction with the experience?”

When it comes to the government Daniel Henninger, in the WSJ, thinks the experience is mostly Mickey Mouse.

Ben Rhodes

Ben RhodesBen Rhodes, a deputy national security advisor, claims to have a mind meld with President Obama. He says, “I don’t know anymore where I begin and Barack Obama ends.”

Somewhere after Obama ends and Rhodes begins, he claims to have manipulated the media to advance the administration’s narrative of the Iran deal.

The 38 year old aspiring novelist, with no national security experience, bragged that the White House press corp is young, inexperienced, and easily fooled.

Eli Lake at Bloomberg View say the narrative on the Iran deal began long before Rhodes got into the act.

Superdelegates

The idea for this one crept into my head while I was reading the  NYT story by David Samuels about “Obama’s foreign policy guru” Ben Rhodes.

Rhodes bragged about planting a false narrative about the Iran nuclear deal to make the agreement seem more palatable to the American public. He claimed that the election of Iranian moderates is what sparked the deal. In reality President Obama sparked the deal by reaching out to Supreme Leader Ayatollah Khamenei long before that.

I was mulling over that little subterfuge when Bernie Sanders popped up on the television screen (I was multitasking), complaining again about the rigged Democratic primary.

The Economist explains here how the Ayatollah picks the candidates in Iran.  Law/Street explains here how superdelegates pick candidates in America.

Guccifer

An unemployed Romanian taxi driver named Marcel Lehel Lazar goes by the handle Guccifer. In his spare time he hacks the email of famous people. In 2013 he read email sent by Sidney Blumenthal to Hillary’s home brew account. For his troubles Lazar has been arrested and extradited to the U.S.

In a recent prison interview he told Catherine Herridge, of Fox News, that he hacked Hillary’s server. “It was easy,” said Guccifer.

The thinking is if a Romanian cab driver can do it, maybe the Chinese, Russians, and others can do it too.

So, while “Lucifer in the Flesh” is out of the presidential race, Guccifer is still a factor.
