Hillary: We must respect and empathize with those who behead children

Hillary Clinton has said some stupid things but this is simply astonishing:

“This is what we call smart power,” Clinton said to a small audience at Georgetown. “Using every possible tool and partner to advance peace and security. Leaving no one on the sidelines. Showing respect even for one’s enemies. Trying to understand, in so far as psychologically possible, empathize with their perspective and point of view. Helping to define the problems, determine the solutions. That is what we believe in the 21st century will change — change the prospects for peace.”

It leaves you shaking your head:

Former Marine Lt. Col. Oliver North, a Fox News host, said the comments are “irrational.”

“I can’t think of a presidential candidate who would have said those kinds of things,” he said. “Think about December 7, 1941 and then FDR going to the Congress of the United States the next day saying, ‘We need to have more empathy for Japan.’”

Can you imagine George Bush standing atop the rubble of the World Trade Center with his bullhorn saying

“I hear you! And soon the people who took these buildings down will be getting more respect and empathy from us!”

Sweet Jesus.

Hillary’s version of smart power is respecting those who just murdered Luke Somers.

Hillary’s version of smart power is empathizing with those who behead children.

Hillary’s version of smart power is not sidelining those who hang gays.

That Hillary is a hard line leftist is no secret, but that blow to her head has clearly left more damage than she has let on.

DrJohn has been a health care professional for more than 30 years. In addition to clinical practice he has done extensive research and has published widely with over 70 original articles and abstracts in the peer-reviewed literature. DrJohn is well known in his field and has lectured on every continent except for Antarctica. He has been married to the same wonderful lady for over 30 years and has three kids- two sons, both of whom are attorneys and one daughter on her way into the field of education. DrJohn was brought up with the concept that one can do well if one is prepared to work hard but nothing in life is guaranteed. Except for liberals being foolish.

    Do you think Hillary has been reading too much of that New Testament ?
    Conservatives seem to like the old better
    Maybe Dr j should have said Sweet Moses (who ordered all the Midanites killed except for the virgin girls who were taken as sex slaves) instead of Sweet Jesus who in fact did command us to love our enemies

    And FDR? He was hated by conservatives of both parties
    Conservatives like Henry Ford and Lindbergh were happy to accept medals fro Hitler who they saw as the anti communist
    American conservatives were happy to concede Asia as falling under the sphere of influence of Japan’s rightwing military and allow them to and plunder and be a bulwark against communism
    FDR had no empathy for them conservatives did

    And let’s not forget Joseph Kennedy, Sr., father of John and Robert, who also supported Hitler to the point that the Brits demanded FDR withdraw Kennedy as Ambassador to Great Britain. And are we also to forget those great “journalists” who supported Stalin, and even lied about Stalin’s many purges, that soiled our national newspapers?

    That’s the problem with a mind like yours that supports progressivism, John. It has a selective memory.

    Negotiating and empathizing with Islamists reminds me of a scene from “Independence Day”.

    President: “What do you want from us?”

    Alien: “We want you to die.”

    Of course we should not forget any if the people like joe Kennedy who supported Germamy
    Nor Prescott Bush who made the majority of the early Bush fortune with business in Germany in the prewar period
    Of course he was almost indicted because he kept working with them even after Dec7 ever wonder why the Gird Motor company properties in France that made German Armybtrucks were never bombed ?
    Social security Medicare the Civil Rights Act these were all programs that made life better for Anericans and programs that conservatives in both parties fought
    America IS making progress to. Being a better society I mean we have not had a mass lunching since 1946!!

    We all know how stupid those on the right are with regard to the complexities of diplomacy. But they are good at screeching and lying to other dummies of things they couldn’t possibly understand.

    Part of our fascination with pinball machines is watching the lights and the frantic vectors the ball takes as it begins its inevitable return to the gutter. The Liberals who point out endless bits of history without making a valid point remind me of the pinball machine and the fools who put their money in them. For a few fleeting moments, and sometimes longer, they see the path of the ball bearing, with its accompanying lights and bells, as having relevance in our world, but soon the quarters are used up and the lights stop flashing, and everyone loses interest and walks away, as if nothing happened.

    Macbeth said it best:

    Out, out, brief candle!
    Life’s but a walking shadow, a poor player
    That struts and frets his hour upon the stage
    And then is heard no more: it is a tale
    Told by an idiot, full of sound and fury,
    Signifying nothing.

    Hillary was Slick Willy’s puppet master, having absorbed socialist ideology without thought or question, and now she wants her turn at the controls — it is her self-righteous right and she will take to the bank that she should be elected because she is a woman and can therefore be a historical figure.

    In all her years in public’s eye, Clinton’s yet to provide any indication that she can be a leader. She couldn’t even lead Billy. She’s as political as Obama/Jarrett.

    I suspect Jarrett is biting at the bit to run, but she can’t give up the absolute control she now wields, although she doesn’t hold the title of the office.

    Are you implying that Prescott Bush was the only American doing business in Germany prior to WWII? And what was wrong with doing business with them prior to the war? Just what do you ‘think’ Bush was doing that was ‘wrong’?

    @Skook: Fantastic analogy Skook! Except I would add at the end that everyone leaves broke, in the dark and where they go to is maybe a home, if they have one. The left doesn’t even see the same game you do since they wear rose-colored glasses and their perspective changes as they float around the table unable to focus on dealing with one reality at a time. But, but never mind because they had “good intentions.”

    @misterRE: I forgot to mention the Pin Ball Wizard, the deaf, dumb, and blind kid. He was the champion, but he surely existed on a different cosmic plane; since, the machine always has your money and you have a few minutes of bells and lights. Like the rantings of a Liberal, full of sound and fury, signifying nothing.

    I hope that Hillary gets the democratic nomination. ANY republican candidate should be able to defeat her. If the people vote her in, I don’t hold much hope for the USA.

    @Jess’s: If we use creative license, we can pretend your post makes sense and you are a lucid person, but I don’t feel that generous today. If you spend some time learning to think and write concisely, people will evaluate your ideas; unfortunately, when you employ the nonsensical babble so common in the commentary of Media Matters and the Huffington Post, your pathetic rants will be avoided like dog crap on the sidewalk.

    @John:

    Leftists always seem to forget that Christ used violence in the New Testament against those who were abusing power in the Temple.

    The left also forgets that the nazis were SOCIALISTS, who admired the progressive philosophy of Wilson.

    There is nothing wrong with righteous use of force against evil. It is insane to engage in diplomacy with a rabid dog, and real productive diplomacy only works when the other side is negotiating honestly and with mutual respect. When dealing with an adversary who has no respect for you, showing weakness (pretending to be ‘understanding’) will always result in disaster. See Chamberlain as an example.

    @Smorgasbord: At this point, most being well fed up with the Dimocrats, led by Obama, almost any Republican can win. But then, Repubs like to nominate losers, such as McCain and Romney, both RINO’s .

    This is why I say that we no longer have a two party system. We have one party, with two branches, and both branches feed off of the same roots. Those roots are the wealthy donors who donate enough to both parties that they get what they want, no matter who wins election.

    If I remember correctly, Jesus only overturned the tables of the corrupt money changers, and that was it.

    @Smorgasbord:

    My Bible’s version of the story has the Savior using a modified whip to drive the money changers – and those selling overpriced sacrificial animals – out of the temple, as well as overturning their tables. They were taking advantage of the travellers, the majority of whom were poor, who only wanted to engage in worship.

    Whichever version you choose to accept, the result is the same – Christ used violence in a righteous cause. He did not turn the other cheek against people engaging in evil in this case – having religious undertones. ISIS is a thuggish collection of despicable, vicious dogs that cannot be reasoned with. Any politician who argues that peace can be achieved if we just try harder to understand such an enemy is a fool. ISIS has made very clear what their goals are. The only path to peace involves two options:
    1. The total extermination of every single member of ISIS, with extreme prejudice, OR
    2. The complete surrender of Western civilization to the new islamic overlords and shariah “law”.

    Any politician who refuses – or is too stupid to understand – this concept will continue working towards the collapse of the United States and the imposition of islamic slavery upon the west.

    I haven’t read the Bible in many years. When I did, it was the King James version. I have read stories of how some versions change things around, just like movie directors change things when they make a movie from a book, and at the beginning of the movie you always see, “Based on….”

    I have also read that mistakes could have been made when translating from one language to another, and a translator could change the text to say what the translator wants it to say, and the stores and manuscripts have parts of them missing that have been filled in to what the people filling them in THOUGHT IT MIGHT SAY. I wish the text that was missing would be highlighted, so readers can figure for themselves what it MIGHT say.

    I figured out a long time ago that the muslim brotherhood got their man in the white house, and I knew congress had been infiltrated, but I wasn’t sure by who. I finally see that it is the same muslim brotherhood that now has the presidency. Anyone who has any doubt should explain why obama is saying the muslims built the fabric of our nation:

    http://viral.buzz/video-obama-praises-muslims-for-what-unbelievable-hypocrisy-as-the-beheadings-continue/?utm_source=Viral+Buzz+12%2F8%2F14&utm_campaign=Viral+Buzz+12%2F8%2F14&utm_medium=email

    Anyone who thinks congress hasn’t been infiltrated, please explain to me why they are letting obama tear this country down, and letting him condemn the Christian and Jewish religions, and promote the muslim religion, even at the united nations.

    Before obama got the democratic nomination to run for president, I figured out that he wants to destroy the USA. People have thought I was crazy, but I wonder how many of those people are rethinking my craziness.

    Nobody has ever explained to me why they think it is OK for obama to have a civilian security force that is strong enough to defeat the military:

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Tt2yGzHfy7s

    Keep in mind that he said this BEFORE he got the democratic nomination to run for president, and no document can be found of him saying it. The copy of the speech he said it in doesn’t have it. Why?

    @Smorgasbord: I certainly agree that the government is infiltrated by Muslims, Obama being the leader. It has been his goal to undermine the US government for many years before he was elected president. He has accomplished many of his goals.

    ND is on a losing streak, maybe it’ll continue. No need to turn it around now.
    I wouldn’t nominate Cruz, he’s not a natural born citizen (like Obama) and therefore, not eligible. I wouldn’t vote for him for that reason (and some others)

    You can say the same thing about the republican party. When they had the house, senate, and white house, did they:

    (1) Put Social Security in a SEPARATE account, and make it so that ONLY THE ONES WHO PAID INTO IT get anything back?
    (2) Lower the national debt?
    (3) Put us back on the gold standard?
    (4) Reduced the welfare roll?
    (5) Let the states educate their kids?
    (6) Reduced the size of government?
    Etc., etc., etc.

    The lipstick doesn’t help the looks of the republican party, either.
