Today’s Campaign Update, Part III
(Because The Campaign Never Ends)
News broke on Thursday morning that the Pantsuit Princess has accepted a post as the new Chancellor at Queen’s University in Belfast, Northern Ireland:
Hillary Clinton is going to be the head of a university in Northern Ireland?
That's an interesting choice.

The post is largely ceremonial, according to the BBC, but will require the Fainting Felon to spent quite a bit of her time in Northern Ireland, which is an interesting place for her to find periodic refuge. While the United States does have an extradition treaty in place with the United Kingdom, that treaty contains some very interesting language related to those who might be ruled exempt from being extradited back to their home country for trial.
Specifically, I refer you to the following language contained in Article 4 of that extradition treaty:
Article 4(3) requires that, notwithstanding the terms of paragraph 2, extradition shall not be granted if the competent authority of the Requested State determines that the request is politically motivated. In the United States, the executive branch is the competent authority for the purposes of the Article. Under the 1985 supplementary treaty, the judicial branch has the authority to consider whether an extradition request is motivated by a desire to punish the person sought on account of race, religion, nationality, or political opinions, or if the person sought would be subject to unfair treatment in UK courts or prisons after extradition. Like all other modern extradition treaties, the new Treaty grants the executive branch rather than the judiciary the authority to determine whether a request is politically motivated. Article 4(4) provides that the competent authority of the Requested State may also refuse extradition for offenses under military law that are not offenses under ordinary criminal law (e.g., desertion). In the United States, the executive branch is the competent authority for the purposes of the Article.
Now, everyone should be aware by now that any effort to prosecute the Coughing Crook or any other major Democrat figure for all their myriad crimes during the Obama years will be met with a coordinated Democrat/Media/deep state narrative that it is entirely politically motivated. We have in fact already been treated to a long-running preview of that tactic related to the clear shakedown operation run by Joe Biden and his ne’er-do-well son Hunter vis-a-vis the Ukraine.
Thus, the language contained in Article 4 relating to “politically motivated” prosecutions becomes quite concerning in this context.
This is all speculation, of course, but the activities of John Durham and William Barr of late have to be quite disconcerting to the Grasping Grifter and her hubby Bill. Accepting this position right in the midst of ongoing speculation that she has plans to jump into the Democrat presidential nominating contest at some point seems an especially odd decision. This post would have zero relevance to her chances of ultimately gaining the Party’s nomination, and indeed could end up being a hindrance if its duties were to interfere with her political ambitions.
So, either the Hacking Hag has decided to disband her life-long ambition to become president, or there is some other motivation involved in her acceptance of this position. With the Clintons, nothing is ever really simple, or what it seems to be on the surface.
That is all.
