For The Clintons, Is There Never Too Much?
No liberal at CNN has ever asked Hillary if her personal worth of $100 million is enough, or perhaps even too much, in a world where children die of hunger each day (as Bill Clinton used to remind an interviewer when he wanted to stop them in their tracks). We’ve all seen Hillary with a sad visage and very serious tone of voice, telling an interviewer that she and Bill left the White House in debt and flat broke. But even allowing for book deals and 6-digit speaking fees, how did the Clintons become wealthy in excess of $100 million? It’s like the cattle futures trading that Hillary did back in Arkansas when she made $100,000 on a thousand dollar investment. How did an inexperienced investor/trader like Hillary make an impossibly large return like that, and why did she stop after only one such brush with success?
The Clintons don’t manufacture anything. They don’t have a profit-making company of any kind similar to the ones that liberals like to point at when accusing corporate leaders of abusing customers, under-paying employees, discriminating against female and black employees and making excess profits, but they never ask the Clintons how they have become filthy rich (in fact liberals don’t consider the Clintons’ wealth to be filthy or excessive, it’s just how all good liberals should live).
And it’s not even mentioned why or how Chelsea married a rich Wall Street type and now lives in a $10 million Manhattan penthouse or how she earned the $600,000 salary from NBC while never appearing on a network program. Aren’t people who live like that accused of evil things and criticized for their excessive incomes and consumption of the world’s precious and disappearing resources?
And added to all of the above, we now know that Hillary has been dealing fast and loose with her emails, national security, telling us that the Egyptian Muslim Brotherhood was part of the blooming Arab Spring and that Bashar al-Assad was a “reformer”, her influence peddling as Secretary of State, her lying under oath to congress and the lies she told to the American people about her email account (and lied to the mother of at least one of the Americans killed in the Benghazi attack) and that she is suspected of overseeing the shipment of weapons to Libya, which ended up arming ISIS following the Benghazi disaster which got four Americans killed. If any one of these things is true, then Hillary should not be allowed near the Oval Office and should be denied any level of security clearance for the remainder of her life, and then she should be locked up in Leavenworth.
No, the Clintons just skate gracefully away, like the ice skaters in Central Park do when Chelsea deigns to look down on them from her Manhattan penthouse suite.
