Those who would do anything to be President are generally ill equipped for the honor or the challenge.
âI say nothing of its motives. Â They were founded in ignorance, not wickedness. Â God forbid we should ever be 20 years without such a rebellion. Â The people cannot be all, & always, well informed. Â The past which is wrong will be discontented in proportion to the importance of the facts they misconceive; if they remain quiet under such misconceptions it is lethargy, the forerunner of death to the public liberty.â Â Thomas Jefferson to William Smith, Paris Nov. 13. 1787.
Most of us remember that it was U.S. Senator Edward Moore “Ted” Kennedy who gave his presidential endorsement to Obama.
This, U.S. Senator Edward Moore “Ted” Kennedy, was the man who eliminated his presidential options by the onerously criminal actions on July 18, 1969, driving a car with Mary Jo Kopechne, a female passenger, off a bridge and into a tidal channel on Chappaquiddick Island, Massachusetts. Â It is reported he swam free, went to his hotel, slept the night and reported the incident the next morning, nine hours later. Â Embracing the mighty arm of elitist influence and privilege, he received a two-month suspended jail sentence.
Enter the Clintons, William Jefferson Clinton, his misogynist past, the incidents of numerous allegations of sexual misconduct, under the cloak of power, though he has only admitted extramarital relationships with Monica Lewinsky and Gennifer Flowers.
Few can forget Paula Jones, Kathleen Wiley, Juanita Broaddrick (the report here was rape), and Elizabeth Ward Gracen, these are the aberrations of character events that history knows about.
Then there was Whitewater, investigations into the real estate investments of Bill and Hillary Clinton and their associates, Jim and Susan McDougal in the Whitewater Development Corporation, a failed business venture.
Following there was Vincent Walker “Vince” Foster, Jr. Deputy White House Counsel during the first few months of President Bill Clintonâs administration, and also a law partner and friend of Hillary Rodham Clinton. Â As a private lawyer, Foster was rated one of the best in the United States. Â He was unhappy with work in politics, moral struggles does great damage to the soul, and spiraled into depression, leading to his suicide in 1993. Â His death remains a subject of interest among conspiracy theorists.
The Lewinsky political sex scandal resulted in the impeachment of President Clinton in 1998 by the U.S. House of Representatives and his subsequent acquittal on all impeachment charges of perjury and obstruction of justice in a 21-day Senate trial, straight down party lines. Â And America is supposed to believe that Hillary Rodham Clinton knew nothing about any of this extensive, copious, long history of infidelities? Â Is it possible to have a noble public life with a morally ugly private one? Â History will out!
Fast forward to Benghazi where, when Secretary of State Hillary Clinton was at the helm, the American diplomatic mission at Benghazi, in Libya, was attacked on September 11, 2012 by a heavily armed terrorist group. Â The attack began during the night at a compound that is meant to protect the main diplomatic building.Â A second assault in the early morning the next day targeted a nearby CIA annex in a different compound. Â Four people were killed, including U.S. Ambassador J. Christopher Stevens. Â Ten others were injured. Â The cover-up is audacious, naked and exponential in its culpability.
Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and President Obama were responsible for a rescue attempt; our Republic demands, a rescue attempt that was aborted at least twice, thus it never happened. Â Will the âgovernment of the peopleâ allow this miscarriage of justice?
Is this recent history, in its entirety, nothing more than stupidity or naked ambition, at any cost, surely either explanation, a character disqualification for any high public office in our noble nation?
Are these the people, in whose hands, we are going to put the future of our great Republic? Â If we do, the theories of Edward Bernays, used effectively by Goebbels, embraced by a media who insists this is not âWatergateâ âŚ.until it is, will plunge our nation into the necessary chaos predicted by the Cloward and Piven strategy using the Rules for Radicals by Sal Alinsky.
Chris Christie is turning the blue culture into red- in New Jersey and in California. Â This is serious leadership being shunned by the Conservative establishment. Â The Reagan Democrats were also politics that most of us learned to question before we embraced the success.
With the passing of Senator Frank Raleigh Lautenberg of New Jersey, Governor Christopher James “Chris” Christie can affect the political balance of the Senate. Â The Republican establishment is âoffâ balance in this debate. Â ”Chris” Christieâs abstemiously warm key note address at the Republican Convention, his continued priority of state Hurricane Sandy federal aid in preference to presidential attitudinal slights, and his gracious acceptance of the CPAC snub by the far right wing of the Republican Party, began Christieâs Democratic recruitment in New Jersey and California, Democratic political fund raising, including ties to Soros, what a conversion, for Soros, a progressive liberal to a Reagan Democrat, a miracle should that happenâŚwould be.
A new version of Edward Kleinâs book âThe Amateurâ reports that President William Jefferson Clinton gave President Barack Hussein Obama the rousing political endorsement for a second term in âexchangeâ for President Obamaâs support for Hillaryâs 2016 White House bid. Â So says the Washington Times.
Curious, this was not-so-friendly an arrangement. Â Clinton wanted Hillary to challenge Obama in 2012. Â Two sources are reported that Clinton said:
âIâve heard more from Bush, asking for my advice, than Iâve heard from Obama. Â I have no relationship with the president – none whatsoever. Â Obama doesnât know how to be president. Â He doesnât know how the world works. Â Heâs incompetent. Â Heâs an amateur.â
An âaccurateâ, the substance, unnamed source.
Governor Christopher James “Chris” Christie or maybe a Tea party leader will emerge, they would most certainly be better for America than those that âseek itâ for power rather than to serve it, the formidable example of President George Washington, who history reports, never wanted the job, but could not âshrink from service to his countryâ, the Thomas Paine argument in âThe American Crisisâ.
âWhat country before ever existed a century & half without a rebellion? & what country can preserve its liberties if their rulers are not warned from time to time that their people preserve the spirit of resistance? Â Let them take arms. Â The remedy is to set them right as to facts, pardon & pacify them. Â What signify a few lives lost in a century or two? Â The tree of liberty must be refreshed from time to time with the blood of patriots & tyrants. Â It is its natural manure.â Â Thomas Jefferson to William Smith, Paris Nov. 13. 1787.
