Elections have consequences. Electing Biden would be especially consequential. – Hillary Clinton is desperate to gain some seat of influence in a Biden/Harris Harris/Biden administration, and any old set of influence will do. That is true because that is the only way she and her Lolita Express-flying hubby can reactivate the graft machine that the Clinton Foundation became while she served as Secretary of State.
A couple of weeks ago, her people floated a media rumor that the Fainting Felon would be interested in reprising her Sec. State role in a new administration, and that fell flat as the proverbial pancake as even many people in the media recoiled in horror at such a prospect. But it’s hard to keep this lifetime grifter down: Over the weekend, she floated a ghost-written piece in the influential, if little-read, Foreign Affairs magazine about defense policy, a clear audition for the Secretary of Defense job in a Biden/Harris Harris/Biden government.
From a report by the National Pulse:
FORMER SECRETARY OF STATE, U.S. SENATOR, AND BENGHAZI BELITTLER HILLARY CLINTON HAS PENNED A 5000-WORD OPINION EDITORIAL FOR FOREIGN AFFAIRS MAGAZINE – A SCARCELY-READ YET IMPORTANT FOREIGN POLICY INDUSTRY PUBLICATION. THE ARTICLE CLEARLY AIMS TO ESTABLISH CLINTON AS A POTENTIAL BIDEN PICK FOR SECRETARY OF DEFENSE: ONE OF THE MOST POWERFUL CABINET POSITIONS IN THE U.S. GOVERNMENT.
The Trump campaign will surely see the audition by the very unpopular Hillary Clinton as a gift in the final days of the U.S. Presidential campaign. The idea of voting for Joe Biden and waking up with Hillary Clinton will send chills up the spine of even many Democrats, to whom both Clinton and Biden represent an old, tired, globalist worldview at odds with a “progressive” or even populist Democrat trajectory.
And Clinton appears to know this, too.
Her article contains a number of veiled mea culpas over globalism, though she repeatedly lumps the blame at Donald Trump’s door for many of the problems caused – in a national security sense – by his predecessors:
“For decades, policymakers have thought too narrowly about national security and failed to internalize—or fund—a broader approach that encompasses threats not just from intercontinental ballistic missiles and insurgencies but also from cyberattacks, viruses, carbon emissions, online propaganda, and shifting supply chains. There is no more poignant example than the current administration’s failure to grasp that a tourist carrying home a virus can be as dangerous as a terrorist planting a pathogen. President Barack Obama’s national security staff left a 69-page playbook for responding to pandemics, but President Donald Trump’s team ignored it, focusing instead on the threat of bioterrorism.”
Go read the whole thing. It’ll scare the pants off of you.
There is an object lesson in this for William Barr. That object lesson is that, while elections most certainly do have consequences, inaction on rank criminality by the Department of Justice has massive consequences of its own. Barr has had almost two years now to start holding people accountable for the selling of U.S. foreign policy to the highest bidding donor to the Clinton Foundation that occurred from 2009-2013, and has not done a damn thing. His record on that aspect of his job is exactly the same as that of the worthless Jeff Sessions, in fact.
The only publicly-apparent action Barr has taken related to the Clinton criminal enterprise has been to shuffle the deck chairs, moving the files collected by do-nothing U.S. Attorney John Huber over to John Durham’s operation, which thus far appears to be a black hole where crime committed by the DC Swamp’s protected class goes to die.
Thus, if America wakes up one day in November with Gropey Joe McNastyFinger having selected the Coughing Crook to sell the Pentagon to the highest bidder, we can look to William Barr and his refusal to act as having been the great enabler of that horrific prospect.
That is all.
