Stop Parroting GOP Lies That Hillary Clinton Is Dishonest/FBI Clears Hillary

Mrs.-Clinton

“Hillary Clinton is fundamentally honest and trustworthy” says former N.Y. Times Executive Editor and investigative journalist Abramson.

It is not unusual for political campaigns to make innuendoes indirectly suggesting that someone is immoral, improper, or has done something horribly wrong. It is unusual though, for a campaign’s supporters to blatantly accuse an opponent of the same party of being dishonest, a lying liar, and an evil person who cannot be trusted.

Defaming a candidate of the opposition party is one thing, if it is based on policy proposals or a character flaw borne out of past actions that predict dangerous tendencies. However, to demean a candidate’s character as dishonest and untrustworthy based on innuendo and dishonest proclamations, especially a candidate of the same party is despicable and a typically Republican ploy. It is why the perpetual claims from too many on the “Left” that Democratic presidential candidate and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton is dishonest and untrustworthy are beyond reprehensible.

Here is the thing; a fair number of people on the left are unaware of; the lion’s share of what they “think” they know about Hillary Clinton’s reputation “is the result of a quarter century of visceral GOP hatred.” As no small number of pundits and political observers have noted, if a liberal thinks Hillary Clinton is corrupt and dishonest, they are paying Republicans huge dividends for their quarter century of manufactured anti-Clinton talking points; not reality.

As noted in a recent Atlantic article, “no other political figures in American history have spawned the creation of a permanent multi-million-dollar cottage industry devoted to attacking the Clintons.” Now, many on the left have embraced the GOP talking points and are gleeful in doing the heavy lifting for Clinton’s Republican political enemies. Enemies who have “manufactured every kind of conspiratorial scandal under the sun to hang around Hillary’s neck.”

Republicans have always despised former president Bill Clinton, “but Hillary always got the worst of it” because she is a woman and led the 1993 crusade to enact universal healthcare; an historical fact that many on the left refuse to believe and thinks is a lie and one Republicans will never forget.

Even though there is little difference between the two Democratic candidates, there may be valid personal reasons one opposes Hillary Clinton in 2016. But what is happening is that those reasons are increasingly about “the personality that’s been manufactured and sold to the Left by the GOP, not policy issues.”

The reality is that Hillary Clinton was one of the most liberal members of the Senate during her tenure, and it is that history as a progressive crusader that so motivated the GOP, and now the pretend Left, to destroy her character in the first place.

As noted here, many of the conservative, and now the Left’s, attacks on Clinton are the product of “rank institutionalized sexism” focusing on her character they claim is inherently dishonest. The implication is that there is no possible way any woman can achieve anything of note without being dishonest and untrustworthy; except that according to expert “truth seekers,” Hillary Clinton is not dishonest.

For example, the Pulitzer Prize-winning “Politifact” gave Clinton the best truth-telling record of any of the 2016 presidential candidates in either party. She easily crushes Republicans Kasich, Cruz and Trump, and Politifact rates her as more truthful than her Democratic opponent.

F.B.I. Director James Comey Recommends No Charges for Hillary Clinton on Email – By Mark Landler/Eric Lichtblau – JULY 5, 2016

WASHINGTON — The F.B.I. director, James B. Comey, on Tuesday recommended no criminal charges against Hillary Clinton for her handling of classified information while she was secretary of state, lifting an enormous legal cloud from her presidential campaign less than two hours before she boarded Air Force One for her first joint campaign appearance with President Obama.

But on a day of political high drama in Washington, Mr. Comey rebuked Mrs. Clinton as being “extremely careless” in using a private email address and server. He raised questions about her judgment, contradicted statements she has made about her email practices, said it was possible that hostile foreign governments had gained access to her account, and declared that a person still employed by the government — Mrs. Clinton left the State Department in 2013 — could have faced disciplinary action for doing what she did.

To warrant a criminal charge, Mr. Comey said, there had to be evidence that Mrs. Clinton intentionally transmitted or willfully mishandled classified information. The F.B.I. found neither, and as a result, he said, “our judgment is that no reasonable prosecutor would bring such a case.”

PS One might ask themselves why the GOP fears Hillary Clinton. Could it be that she wants free (universal) healthcare for all, reasonable rates on Pharma’s prescription drugs, equal rights/same pay for over half of the population (Women), free education for all, protecting/increasing Social Security, climate control and alternative power solutions not just depending on oil and worst of all giving women a choice to control their own bodies? Also, there will be knee jerk reactions from men and women who feel that women should not seek to manage or exalt themselves at all–think about it.
