st as America was tossed — or did we eagerly jump — into the sexual political gutter with Bill and Hillary and Donald, there was other news breaking.
At least I thought it was news. But I must warn you: Sex and sexual politics has nothing to do with it.
It’s Hillary Clinton’s dream of an America without borders, as expressed to investors of a Brazilian bank, in comments leaked by WikiLeaks.
An America without borders, Hillary? How positively George Soros of you, Madam Secretary.
“My dream is a hemispheric common market, with open trade and open borders, sometime in the future with energy that’s as green and sustainable as we can get it, powering growth and opportunity for every person in the hemisphere,” Clinton reportedly said to investors in a paid speech she gave to Brazilian Banco Itau in 2013.
Here’s the thing about borders. If you don’t have borders, you don’t have a country. Americans are beginning to understand this. Europeans understand it now, quite clearly.
Clinton’s dream also includes a Western Hemispheric common market, like the European common market that is dissolving in chaos, fear and debt.
If that is indeed her dream, then she dreams the internationalist dream that would end America. But Americans aren’t talking about this, perhaps because there is no video involving sex and Hollywood and Trump.
I would love to hear Clinton’s explanation. Perhaps she could put it in some proper context.
Or perhaps she was merely telling the Brazilians something they wanted to hear, because they were paying her a good chunk of cash.
And if there is a way for America to maintain sovereignty without borders, Hillary might be just the one to tell us. But the Clinton campaign isn’t commenting. And reporters aren’t really pressing, preoccupied as they are by that vulgar video of a boorish Trump.
Clinton campaign spokesman Robby Mook was on one of the talk shows saying Clinton’s dreams of American open borders didn’t really mean open borders.
Mook said she meant open borders in the context of green energy for all.
Cool. But then what about her dreams of the hemispheric common market and all the people traveling to and fro across the Western Hemisphere?
So I’d like to hear Hillary Clinton tell it.
The way to deal with this would be for Clinton to release the transcripts of all her well-paid speeches, the ones to Wall Street and the one about border dreams to Banco Itau. That’s what Bernie Sanders wanted.
But that’s not happening, just like Donald Trump isn’t releasing his tax returns.
So the Clintonistas are blaming the Russians for the hacking.
It might also be true that if a hacker could hack into Clinton campaign emails, then a hacker might also have hacked into top secret emails she kept on her home brew server in violation of federal law when she was secretary of state.
But I won’t say anything, lest I be denounced as a Russian spy.
That WikiLeaks information was available just before the last Clinton-Trump debate. The moderators could have asked a question about it, but they chose not to.
No different then Obama the creation of the North American(Soviet)Union open our borders unregulated imagration disarm the law abiding citizens just like what Big Brother the Useless Nations and the sinister CFR want
I think her explanation had something to do with Millard Fillmore.
So the “we are not confirming these hacked documents are legit”..ok then how can you expound on it by telling us what she meant.
So she said it, no borders, drug cartel members freely crossing borders.
I am sure the whole “I have a dream” speech she gave the bankers would be quite inspiring.
But those countries are just chocked full of despised,sexist, bastardized Catholics, the Pope is from down there, let the infiltration for re-education begin!
CNN is running non-stop yammering about the accusers of Trump who are simply unconfirmed accusations. Yet they spend not one minute discussing the corruption, collusion and insults which are the the Clinton’s campaign’s OWN WORDS from their hacked emails.
The media is destroying this nation.
@Bill- Deplorable Me: Go directly to Fox you’ll feel very comfortable there with Hannity and guests like Rudy and Newt–86% of those watching think DT IS GONNA WIN–How bout you?
@Richard Wheeler: You re again missing the point The media is supposed to keep the public informed They are not because they have become partisan. The issue here is that our country is being destroyed from within because of the “me first” ideology espoused by the liberals. It does not matter who is running or who is ahead. It is the corruption by the 4th estate as well as candidates that is not being addressed. You said you once took a vow to protect the Constitution from foreign and domestic enemies. That vow never expires if your truly met it. It appears that violations of the Constitution are ok with you as long as it is your party who is doing the violating. Maybe your comments say more about you than Donald Trump. He has not taken that vow yet. Clinton and Obama have.
@Randy: Col—-As a Marine Corps Officer I fought for my country in V.N. To question my patriotism may be a flaw in your character Sir.
Your support of the clearly unhinged Donald–“I can’t remember which foot it was” Trump may bring into question your ability to reason clearly. Thank you for your service
@Richard Wheeler: As the title suggests, what does Hillary’s promise to open our borders mean? Is it good?
@Richard Wheeler: So now you support the media that sabotages and a candidate who has committed acts that are criminal? Looks like you have violated your vow. It doesn’t matter what you have done for your country in the past, it is what you are doing right now. I am questioning your integrity as an officer.
She stated it was a dream, references an ideal condition that one can aspire to. That doesn’t mean someone can wave a magic wand and make it so. The other end of the spectrum would be a fortress nation within impenetrable walls. A world without war is an idealized condition. The end of all poverty is an idealized condition.
@Randy: I don’t support any particular media and I certainly don’t support HRC or DT
I question YOUR integrity if you support a proven liar like Donald Trump. He’s totally unhinged and is ranting like a madman–No self control–the worst type of leader. Wouldn’t you agree?
@Richard Wheeler: I disagree with anyone questioning your oath. But I also disagree that he would be the worst type of leader, there is an example but I think you know.
The count up to 9 accusors against Donny Hillary got nearly the entire count of one of her rallies to go after him. Boss Boss de plane! Welcome to fantasy island.
The Moron’s Case For Hillary Clinton…because some of you really are that stupid.
I truly understand this man’s anger. That said, I have friends who are decidedly not stupid, but are also Trump supporters. This is a mystery to me.
@Greg: So, you don’t think she has any intention of combining this promise with her promise of blanket amnesty for illegal immigration and her criticism of Trump for pledging to secure the border?
Again, she’s LYING. It’s just a question of to whom.
Your smart friends support Trump because he is the one that is NOT a lying criminal that wants to flood the country with illegal immigrants.
To be a criminal, it has to be established that a person has committed a crime. That hasn’t happened, despite republicans having spent tens of millions of taxpayer dollars on dozens of Clinton investigations over the course of decades. (I’ve seen estimated cumulative totals running as high as $100 million. The recent FBI email investigation alone ran over $20 million.) Trump’s repeated public pronouncements that the Clintons are criminals don’t actually count as convictions in the thinking of reasonable people.
Maybe republicans should have spent a few bucks vetting Donald Trump. Then they wouldn’t be facing this:
Life after Trump: Republicans brace for betrayal and civil war after 2016
Don’t get your hopes up. They’re talking about civil war within the Republican Party.
@kitt: Questioning someone’s adherence to the oath is the duty of all of us who took that oath. When one of us violates that oath by supporting someone violating that oath, we ourselves are violating that oath. It is a life time oath. Most of us take our duties seriously.
Well, yes, it has happened. Hillary has committed perjury, lying under oath before Congress. There is tape of her doing it and Comey has verified she lied.
Now, that’s just the perjury. What she lied about is also a crime. Then there is the destruction of evidence and the revelations that the evidence was destroyed after it was subpoenaed.
Yeah, Greg, she’s a criminal. Most definitely. And, were there to be an honest investigation, she would be indicted.
The costs of the investigations bother you (they don’t, but if they did) keep in mind that they are totally due to Hillary’s corruption and then her lies, cover ups and stonewalling. She should have to pay for them herself.
@Bill- Deplorable Me: Multiple statutes Clinton and those that got immunity committed. If you have definitive proof which the FBI investigators have, but then say no prosecutor would take the case, did they survey prosecutors? He layed out all the things she should be prosecuted for. She is a criminal they refuse to bring to trial. What prosecutor wouldnt love the press as he who chucked the monkey wrench into the machine? It would be historic.
@kitt: Oh, there is no doubt several books could be thrown at her, were she seriously investigated. However, the oft-cited falacy that she “committed no proven crimes” is demonstrably false, as we can just “refer to the tape”, as it were.
