IS HILLARY THE BEST OR WORST SECRETARY OF STATE?

 

     There’s a lot of spin going around the media circuit priming Hillary Clinton as the heir apparent to Barack Obama in 2016. Most liberal pundits ignore the obvious and bare facts, blindly declaring Hillary as one of the greatest Secretaries of State in history.

     Sadly, nothing could be farther from the truth. If you measure success as a Secretary of State by miles traveled and pictures taken shaking hands with diplomats, then she’d win hands down. But those are not accomplishments, they are duties. Accomplishments are positive results from the tasks performed, of which there are few to list of any significance whatsoever.  Nevertheless, all those photo shoots and fawning reporters will be sure to sway millions of brain-dead followers, facts be damned.

     A book could be written about the failures of our state department during the last four years. For the sake of blog space, let’s keep it to a short bullet list:

     *    North Korea.  No achievements there. The sabers are still rattling and that little regime remains one of the world’s greatest dangers.

     *    Iran.  Closer to nuclear power than ever before and likely to be able to deliver a nuclear head toIsraelwithin the next year.

     *    Latin America.  Brutal dictator and hater of America, Hugo Chavez garnered control and power over much of Central and South America.

     *    Eastern Europe. Many of our allies feel less safe and protected since the dissemblance of their missile defense system there.

     *    Russia.  All indictors point to a return of dictatorial rule and resurgence of international power.

      *   China.  What Nixon developed as an ice-breaker returning to diplomatic relations with China has stung like a scorpion as China has evolved into our greatest debt with a stranglehold on our economy.

     *    Israel.  Diplomacy has all but vanished between Israel and the U.S. Never before have relations been as poor between the two countries, and never has Israel been so maligned on an international scale. Never before did the U.S. take sides against Israel, i.e. callinf for the return to old borders. The Palestinians under Hamas are further from peace than four years ago, the rockets keep firing and the on-going goals to destroy Israel are continuously shouted from the core of Islamist regimes. 

     *     The Middle East.  Give Hillary (and the Obama team) an F-Minus. The arch enemy of freedom and most extreme Islamist organization in the world, the Muslim Brotherhood, has assumed control over many countries, including Egypt,Tunisia, Libya, Mali, Niger, Syria. The administration’s claim that al Qaeda “is on the run” is a bald-face lie as al Qaeda is penetrating numerous nations inside of Africa today, not to mention Syria, India and Pakistan.

     Where Christianity and even Judaism were protected in Egypt under Mubarak, that is no longer the case as Christian Coptics are fleeing and churches and synagogues are closed.

     Ironically we are sending aid to Syria and other “rebel fighters” who are basically associated with al Qaeda, the very terror organization responsible for attacking the U.S. on September 11, 2001. That’s not to mention four F-16’s the Obama administration recently gifted to Egypt’s Muslim Brotherhood regime, the founder of Hamas.

     Our relations in the Islamist world/Middle East are about as bad as they’ve ever been, as the treaty between Israel and Egypt is all but defunct and multi-millions of people remain on edge to see where the first nuclear strike will land.

     We should ask Mrs. Clinton, whose side are we on?

*     Huma Abedin.  Hillary’s most trusted aide and travel companion is an educated Saudi woman whose mother, father and brother are all tied to the Muslim Brotherhood. One could only imagine how much the status of  U.S.  security has been breached and handed over to the one notorious organization whose stated goals, in writing, is to destroy America “from within.” Yet, the left and right wings of mainstream media ignore her presence. Huma Abedin would not pass a basic clearance test to be a local policeman. Thanks to the power of Mrs. Clinton, she is untouchable and our national security is at risk. 

*     The Benghazi attack.  The worst attack on an American consulate in years, with four dead Americans one of whom is an Ambassador to Libya, working directly in the State Department under Hillary Clinton, and she artfully dodges questions from the media and congress for 4 ½ months before taking the stand, plenty of time to evaluate the fallout then rehearse and plan what to say and how to say it.

     No serious accountability has been accepted for virtually decimating ambassadorial security in a non-secure zone, especially when beefed up security was specifically asked for by the ambassador – and refused. Not only was it refused, it was diminished. That, despite knowing  the Red Cross and the British were attacked and they hauled butt out of there. Especially when the Libyan consulate had already been under attack before.

     All this, then lying to the American public by stating it was all a result of an amateur video insulting to Islam, knowing that was a lie when she said it.  And knowing it was a lie when her employee, UN Ambassador Susan Rice was dispatched to five television shows to regurgitate the same lie.

     Her answer: “What difference does it make?”  Excuse me?  Is this OUR Secretary of State?

     Under her watch, the Libyan ambassador and three other brave American soldiers were murdered because of poor decisions – or no decisions – made by this Secretary of State.  And, she gets a pass?

     Are you kidding me?

     The greatest Secretary of State?

     For which country?

Dick Morris points out why Mrs. Clinton continues to receive such glowing press. Her press corps travels with her regularly, assigned to her exclusively. If they are not kind to Madame Secretary, a reporter can easily fall out of favor and be rendered dismissed.  Thus, poor press coverage is not permitted and well controlled.

     Makes sense.

     And here, you all thought the media was neutral all this time.

    When the under fire diplomats at the American Embassy in Benghazi called for military assistance as they were under attack, The president is at blame here. Correct me if I’m wrong but the Secretary of State can’t order the Marines anywhere. The buck stops with the commander in chief, and I use the term loosely, and that’s the president who can order the Marines to intervene in such a situation not Hillary Clinton.
    This was showing once again Obama’s alliance with the Muslim Brotherhood.
    Obama has let America down once again. He threw Hillary under the bus to cover his own butt.

    Marshall,

    Here’s a question for you. Despite the fact that President Obama is the most vicious anti-Israel president in history and Israel can no longer rely on our support, other than the $3 billion we give them every years, why is it then that Israel is soon going to award him the prestigious “Presidential Medal of Distinction?”

    I don’t recall Hillary doing anything to improve our relations with Israel. Have I missed something?

    • Capt Bill Kohler February 24, 2013 at 4:41 pm #

      Can’t POTUS be brought to Court for the death of those four men, as in “Derelection of duty”

    • Leon February 26, 2013 at 6:44 am #

      Is it possible that Obama bribed Israel to give him a medal or he would cut off the $3 billion that the U.S. give them every year?? Just a thought..

  3. Howard Bernbaum PE February 23, 2013 at 10:18 pm #

    I believe Charlie Greene is correct, Obama is the culprit. I suspect he is a paid hand of George Soros out to destroy America. Between Obama, a criminal congress, and an idiotic voting block, this country is doomed. OBTW, apropos the Clintons. There is a swath of dead and broken bodies in their wake and they couldn’t care less.
    Hillary is a shoo in for 2016.

    • paul vincent zecchino February 24, 2013 at 6:29 pm #

      Agree. How quickly many forget the list of dead. How many did it finally reach? Was over one hundred at last count, if recall correctly.

  4. Christopher Jones February 23, 2013 at 10:40 pm #

    You can call her teflon Hillary. Nothing will stick to her. She can and will blame all problems on obama…and perhaps rightfully so in many cases. She has done the bidding of her massa…though they are wrong and what she has done has hurt us greatly.

    She may well be the one to beat in 2016. If she was to be elected, the country will have no chance to recover ever. We are in bad shape with obama. We would be completely doomed under another Clinton.

    The only way she will get stomped is if there is a war. And that looks like it will happen.

  5. Gilleland February 23, 2013 at 10:58 pm #

    I have a question for you folks. Since President Obama is arguably the most anti-Israel

    president of all time and since Hillary has done nothing for Israel either, why do you

    suppose Israel is going to present Obama with their prestigious “Presidential Medal of

    Distinction” award? Is that purely an effort to suck up to our president?

  6. Jack Milavic February 23, 2013 at 11:41 pm #

    Israel Presidential Medal of Distinction criteria is very same as the Nobel Peace Medal Mr Obama won before his first term. As a former editor of a school paper Mr Obama has indeed accomplished much.
    Egypt was completely sold out by Hillary and my many friends in Egypt keep asking me “WHY”.

  7. Arthur Urrowsaurrows February 24, 2013 at 1:05 am #

    Marshall, you think that Israel can do no wrong. It’s prime minister brazenly interfered in our election for the presidency. What steps has it taken to make peace with the Palestinians? It continues to establish “settlements.” And thus punch the noses of the Palestinians, all of whom are not Hamas.

    It is now holding back taxes from the West Bank govt. in retaliation for its govt. having gotten the UN to give it a partial recognition.

    Netanyahu’s party lost considerable votes — and power– in the last election. This, indicating many Israelis aren’t pleased with his policies.

    Certainly, Israel is a wonderful democracy and developing a high-tech economy. Yet, it has problems similar to ours with very large disparities in income which contributed to what seemed from afar as Netanyahu’s party not paying enough attention to the middle and lower classes.

    One word… Benghazi

  9. Edge February 24, 2013 at 1:42 am #

    Hilary Clinton needs to be exposed or the conservative movement is doomed. She and Bill were offered up with their phony umbrage on display when Soros ordered his minions in the lame stream media to make the call to go Obama in Q3 2008. He characteristically evaluated the low information voting block, and then made the call to bet on the first “Black President” instead of the “first woman”. Of course when you have strategically setup events to purchase the presidency to destroy the USA as the only sovereign obstacle to one world currencies and governments, you have to be sure of your play.
    But as Soros has showed the world before he is amused by his power to disrupt and manipulate, which is isn’t that strange for someone who was also understood it was “kind of cool” to be a Nazi collaborator. Hilary went along with the 2008 charade, as did Bill when he had to endure being called a “racist” and she had to take a disingenuous lame stream media beating. As it was in Benghazi, and her subsequent “illness” which was an allergic reaction to having to tell the truth, the Clinton’s have no issue with playing the parts their OWO director needs them to.

    She was guaranteed the SecState to drop quietly out of the way. Then after the second debate, with McCain finally gaining a bit of ground, Soros dropped the Chinese bank credit shutdown because of “subprime mortgage instability” and we had Sept. 18, 2008 which was the end of McCain. Like Romney, he simply disappeared when he started gaining ground. After the disastrous Washington DC financial summit where the criminally negligent Hank Paulson effectively convinced the assembled group it was necessary to monetize the debt, McCain was a dead duck. Just like Romney was intimidated out of the race after the first debate in 2012.

    Make no mistake, Hilary isn’t just an incompetent, nasty woman, she is Soros’s favorite puppet, who is just biding her time until the first puppet has served his useful idiot purpose. Obama has no experience and no qualifications to be President and we all know it, but he is an effective liar and in the most crass evaluation that fits “a dick”. Hilary at least has some of the requisite skills and some ability to try to get along with the other side although she has no intention of ever accepting their position as her husband did in 1996 so effectively. In being a Democrat, she is the master of the one trait most valued above all others: Lying without conscience.
    2014 will be the last time we can stop Soros’s complete corruption of the election process. Unfortunately because of feckless republicans devoid of a real leader, and an ever increasing load of squishy moderates, there is no real hope to stop the absolute domination of the political process by the Soros Democrats, with the Liar Queen at the top of the anti-America, anti-constitution consortium.

    • Patriot10258 February 26, 2013 at 2:54 am #

      Sorry, you are still operating under the assumption that we are still in a two party system. The puppet master(s) want the public to believe that this is so. I had faith that we still had two parties until the point that it was obvious that the election we just suffered was rigged and that voter fraud was rampant. I went to the polls thinking that my vote mattered and that if there was any fraud exposed it would be pursued and the violating party exposed and prosecuted. That is until I learned that the Republican Party gave away their right to question voter fraud in 1983 or 84. When history finally shakes out, if there is anyone left allowed to write the truth, the world will see that the destruction of our country started with the first George Bush president.

    Marshall’s Question ~ Is Hillary The Best Or Worst Secretary Of State?

    On Every Bullet Item… she’s the absolute worst. Hillary & Bill Clinton have taken a very well-known and extremely talented Muslim Brotherhood Agent under their protective wings for the
    last fifteen years. Bill Clinton actually married the New York Jewish Perverted Congressman Anthony Weiner & Huma Abedin, whose mother and brother are highly connected to the notorious MB that openly seeks the destruction of our Israeli Allies, then onward to North America, for the Stealth Jihad “Invasion by Mosque”… as described by Middle East historian
    Martel Sobiesky in Snake Hunter Archives (See: ‘ISLAM’S INVASION’ November 01, 2010).

    Its overwhelming to me that everyone knows how Bad Hillary is & was , even on her campaign against Obama , she switched to bowing out , why did that happen. As hard as she fought for the nomination , then suddenly was gone . Either we the 49% are stupid , or people in Washington are all on the take, everyone both on the left and the right. The only person who is being realistic is Rand Paul , giving back unspent money giving him by the taxpayers for his office staff. We don’t have the guts in this country to put a stop to being held hostage by the lies in Washington. Obama tell lies on TV in front of Firefighters about how they are going to lose their jobs because of Sequester. Hillary lies to congress at the hearings on Benghazi , only one Senator asks her pertinent questions while the Democrats kiss her ass on TV . Even if the Senators on the right can’t ask the questions , can’t they go over to the other senators on the left and tell them you guys are full of shit. How can you Thank a Secretary of State who has made a mess in Benghazi, totally irresponsible
    in running her department that she was supposedly had a handle on. She knew 9/11 was an important date and didn’t have added security in Libya. Why didn’t Obama want to know whats going on during the attack. Why isn’t someone getting a hold of Panetta and asking more questions, he doesn’t work for the Government any longer . The only way we can get straight answers is we need to get someone close to the President who is willing to save this country . It is beyond comprehension for me that with aall the information we have , we need to find someone that we can get a straight answer from the people in washington. Our Government is not operating truthfully , there is noone in the press thats has the balls to ask the right questions to Jay Carney. Like for instance Jay Carney after kept repeating that the cause in Benghazi was a anti Islam Video , than after three weeks says it was a Terrorist Attack . Why didn’t the press call him out on that, say Jay you lied to us on bebghazi why should we in the press beleive what your telling us now. Obama was the one that came up with Sequestration why are you lying to us now and telling us it was the Congress that did . Youa re lying again , have you ever told us the truth since you have been press secretary . Se what his response is if he doesn’t answer the question than turn to the TV cameras and say see America FREE PRESS . Now they will probably tell me my WH pas is revoked , All Lies this government is a Fraud and the democrats in Congress are all frauds.

    • Christopher Jones February 24, 2013 at 12:45 pm #

      You have summed it all up Mike. Congress has no backbone (neither side), and the media protects the lies.

      How do we fix this?

    • Edge February 25, 2013 at 1:05 am #

      Mike,
      Great post, but she didn’t disappear. She took a dive in exchange for SecState. 2008 was the worst dive since Michael Spinks. The only disagreement I have with you is that the press, even if it had integrity which it doesn’t, has too many financial ties to the myriad Soros companies that keep the LSM afloat in the sewer that is the American media to tell any truths about Obama. It is ludicrous how he presents as the poster child for blatant hypocrisy and continues to get away with it unchallenged. Think about it. He is opposing guns with his justice department under Eric Holder who pardoned International Arms Dealer and Criminal, Marc Rich and is directly responsible for the Fast and Furious which cost Bryan Terry his life? And he blames the congress for the debt which is he is solely responsible for? While saying not one thing about Harry Reid’s complete failure as Senate Majority Leader? The list is never ending.

    This is outstanding, Marshall! You are a gifted writer!

    I hope you submit this to our FL Decay asap! These facts are indisputable!

    Thank you for keeping me on your list. I’m working at NASCAR tomorrow with the vets, and have to leave at 6:30 a.m., so gotta go to bed soon. Made a copy of this and will share.

    Thanks for being on top of things. You are gifted! .

    I don’t know if she is the worst SECSTATE, but she’s sure in the running.

  15. Ron Fischer February 25, 2013 at 1:46 am #

    Across the board, the government is a reflection of the current Administration. History will note that Obama and everyone that was associated with him was a great American failure.

    Hillary has always been a failure. But, not surprisingly, the government is overloaded with social deviates and individual characters of failure. It has become a government of “cash” over “credentials” – a government corrupt.

    We can still use the tools that got them into their positions to clean house and get them out. I think we will.

    The people that comment here are much different characters than those that occupy government. I am confident they will lead the way to recovery much sooner than anyone in the government.

    Hillary’s greatest distinction is that she and numerous other members of the Obama administration will be impeached for treasonous activity and murder both of which happened in Benghazi, Libya on September 11, 2012. Peter Guild, Quincy, MA.
