First, a brief explanation: I’ve made a personal commitment to myself that I will do my damnest to alert voters about why electing Hillary Clinton would be bad for the U.S.
I’m aware that, for the most part, it’ll be “preaching to the choir” for our regular readers here at N&F, but we can expect to get occasional visitors who may be under a mistaken impression that Hillary is genuine and I want to educate them with some inconvenient facts that the mainstream media likes to bury.
It’s just under a year and a half before Election Day 2016 and we can’t allow the low information crowd to cruise all the way to Election Day being exposed to only the information that Hillary has blessed as “safe” for them to hear.
I can’t guarantee new material every episode, but I will try to write (at least weekly) on subjects that are either new or may have faded from recent memory and deserve an occasional reboot, just as a reminder.
For example, this first episode is all about the “Ready for Hillary” van tour whereby she is traveling via her Scooby van from New York to Iowa.
According to her campaign, one reason for the road trip is to allow Hillary to concentrate on showing ordinary folks that she is “one of them” and can identify with their middle class problems and concerns.
This van trip does prompt a question; I wonder when the last time Hillary was transported by any vehicle other than a limo or government SUV or took public transportation? And I wonder if her entourage will be staying at a Motel Six or Econo Lodge?
Since she’s announced that she’s running for president, she knows that her every move will be subject to scrutiny and she wants to be seen by ordinary folks as just like “one of them”.
But don’t be fooled. The last thing that Hillary wants is to actually be like “one of them.” She wants to appear empathetic and understanding of the day-to-day concerns of ordinary Americans so she can be elected, it’s no more complex than that.
Now, at the start of her campaign, by riding in her Scooby van, she is feigning being ordinary. But just a short time ago, her surroundings were a bit more extravagant.
For instance: The Las Vegas Review-Journal obtained Clinton’s contract and documents related to a scheduled October 13, 2014 speech at a University of Nevada, Las Vegas (UNLV) Foundation fundraiser. The documents show that Clinton received $225,000 to speak at the fundraiser, a discount from her initial $300,000 asking price. But the fee was only the first of Clinton’s many stipulations.
The former Secretary of State insists on staying in the ‘presidential suite’ of a luxury hotel of her staff’s choice, with up to five other rooms reserved for her travel aides and advance staff. Clinton also reportedly requires that the Foundation provide a private plane. However, the jet can’t be just any private plane; only a $39 million, 16-passenger Gulfstream G450 “or larger” will do the job.
And yet she wants voters to see her as an ordinary middle class grandmother. But how many middle class grandmothers made close to $5 million for speeches and appearances in the last 15 months alone?
And how many grannies received an $8 million advance in 2000 for writing a book and another $14 million advance for writing another book in 2014? That’s an astounding $22 million dollars for “writing” two books.
Poor Hillary, and yet she’s like an ordinary real person.
She’s was said to be worth between $5.2 million and $25.5 million in 2012 (reporting earnings within a wide range). If that’s middle class, apparently I’m not middle class like I thought I was.
She reportedly charges $200,000 for speaking fees! I guess now we plain folks should be thankful that she has begun to speak to us FOR FREE! Just think, each time she speaks to us, we save $200,000! I wonder if that savings could be applied to bring down our national debt?
And speculation is that she may spend as much as $2.5 BILLION on her campaign for POTUS – a job for which she would be paid a paltry $400,000 a year. Why would she want to take a pay cut to be president? She could give a couple of put-everyone-to-sleep speeches and make $400,000, why take that kind of pay cut?
No doubt, because Hillary just wants to serve the public again – she’s a natural humanitarian. She’s willing to put aside her personal aggrandizement and serve the greater good as our president – what a trooper.
But don’t be fooled. Hillary Clinton IS NOT “one of us;” she’s not an ordinary citizen. She and the rest of the privileged Clinton crime family are part of that villainous ONE PERCENT. Yes, that same one percent against which she’ll rail about the disparity between the “haves” (like her) and the “have-nots” (like the rest of us).
Hillary is RICH! She is WEALTHY! Neither she nor her family will ever have to work another day in their lives; they’re all set for life – and a damned comfortable one at that.
She is just like her millionaire Hollywood friends starring in a $2.5 billion dollar blockbuster. She’s an actor, playing a part pretending to be someone she’s not. She is following a script written by her campaign staff and designed to fool the audience into believing the story of a kindly fairy godmother who magically appears just in time to save a poor, downtrodden population from those evil ogres, the Republicans.
And if you believe that fairy tale, I’ve got some magic beans you might be interested in.
