The other night, while the boys were out, politics came up, and how dangerous that was! We at the Aardvark, for the most part, are like minded people. However we can stray a bit and here goes Uncle Doogs!! Our dangerous topics of politics is not nearly as dangerous as who I think the Democratic Party was able to rummage up for the presidential nominee. Now I know my counterparts are both going to roll their eyes at me and say, “Donald is far more dangerous.” Is he dangerous, sure, but as dangerous as Hilary, I think not. Besides neither one of them are getting my vote, Hey Gary Johnson!
The reason why I think Hilary is far more dangerous than Trump is the way she has handled certain events as Secretary of State. She had an American Ambassador, J. Christopher Stevens, die on her watch. How quickly people are to defend her saying that both partisan and bipartisan Committee’s have found Clinton free of wrong doing, which to me is incredibly dangerous words. My biggest problem with it all is he never should have been there at all. The State Department failed him, and his family, for keeping him safe. The order had been carried out to fortify the compound that he was staying at, but it was never followed through.
Boom, that right there is problem number one. My fellow Aardvarkian, Patrick, gave me that little tid bit of information, which I find is a sorry excuse for a defense for someone like the Secretary of State. Making sure that my order of, “Fortify that compound” would be the first thing I followed up on every single morning until it happened. I find it foolish to think that because someone gave an order that means it will happen instantly, or not get lost in the shuffle. If the compound was not getting fortified properly, why didn’t SecState pick up the phone to POTUS? I find it irresponsible that Clinton did not use the resources she had available to her as SecState to make sure things such as security for Americans were happening.
Pat also made a valid point of being Secretary of State is an incredibly dynamic job with the demands of many things happening quite often. Indeed Patrick, a dynamic job it must be, which I 100% agree with. However it helps further my point here. She will not be able to handle the demands of being President. It is an even more dynamic situation I would think, and this is a poor showing of her abilities to over come situations. To me, the security of a compound, not an embassy, a compound, that should not have even been there in the first place, should have been her top priority every morning with a basic follow up questions of, “I need an update on the security of Ambassador Steven’s quarters” and could have easily pressed on to whatever else was on the agenda.
Clinton’s mismanagement of even allowing an Ambassador to be in that country in the first place is a second, and monumental red flag people should be seeing. The fact is allies, had pulled out all of their embassies and had Ambassadors return home. My counterpart, James, made a fair point. “Since when do we as America listen to other countries?” Honestly, I think we do quite often, and a good leader knows when to follow and listen as well. Clinton failed miserably there. Had we been proactive with wanting to keep Ambassador Stevens, alive the country would have made sure that he was not in Libya which is now a failed state and is a strong hold for ISIS.
I find myself having very troubled feelings after watching Representative Roskam’s video regarding the lack of military assets in the area. No lives could have been saved because no military forces were moving towards Benghazi. That is a monumental breakdown on the federal level. This plays into a bigger point of the Government fucking up badly with not having good oversight on what they were entrusted to have oversight on.
Hillary’s complete lack of integrity continues to prove that she is way too dangerous for the American people. Her continued inability to tell the truth regarding the email server crisis is a thermometer of her moral compass. Her inability to the tell truth greatly puts this nation’s national security at risk and puts the American people in jeopardy, while she enjoys twenty-four hour protection from the US Secret Service. Polls have even shown that Clinton is not found to be trust worthy or loyal, but yet, people will still vote for her rather than stand up to the political system that has them all tied to feeling the need to make a main stream vote.
Hilary was also equated to a “public servant” during the debate to which I can only laugh at. She is so far from a public servant. She did not fight for one second for Ambassador Stevens. She had endless resources to make sure SecDef had moved military assets near by, or simply told POTUS to keep an eye on things as well.
That brings me to another point. Let me be extremely clear here: Being a political does not make you a public servant. In my eyes, as a true public servant, it does not work that way. Clinton is in the business of politics to live the 1% lifestyle off of the American taxpayer. A public servant works for the people, and has the American people’s concerns at the forefront of their mind. Not how to break laws and hopefully not get caught (e-mailgate reference to which my fellow Aardvarkians will say, “Well the FBI director isn’t pressing charges.”) More importantly, why would you want someone who could be facing criminal charges as your presidential Nominee? I don’t get it! Does that not worry you that their integrity is being called into question? Does it not worry you that your nominee is doing shady things that may warrant the Department of Justice to weigh in on?! I think she is just such a foolish person and foolish nominee for president.
The Dem’s really fucked this one up. Get use to having someone with no integrity in office because this nation is really looking like they’ll be putting Hillary in office.
Oh and the GOP fucked this one up too. I think another article ripping Donald is due!
