In a recent dump of private emails and speeches given by Hillary, we learned that in defining her political success she told her audience that you must have a "private position and a public position" on your beliefs.
In other words you must be double minded to be a successful politician.
First graders, not yet baptized in progressive relativism, told Fox News this weekend that "honesty and not lying" are important qualities for a leader.
The FBI, as you know, has now reopened the investigation of Hillary and her dual world reality.
Late yesterday we learned that Federal Investigators have obtained a warrant to begin searching about 650,000 emails that belong to Hillary's aid Huma Abedin's estranged husband Anthony Weiner, who is also under investigation for child pornography.
We'll learn more about all this today, I presume. But perhaps the most important thing we can learn would be from the first graders.
In a segment on Fox News Saturday, first graders from the New York based School of the Blessed Sacrament told Fox's Julie Banderas what they think about the election, Hillary, and Trump.
Often the most insightful wisdom comes from "the mouths of babes."
The first graders told Banderas "not lying" is a quality leaders should have, and Clinton does not have that quality.
One little girl said, "My dad tells me that Hillary Clinton lies a lot. So if she wins, she might take over the country."
The girl added, "And also a president also has to be truthful, smart and really,really nice."
Another little boy explained he trusts Trump because "Hillary lies more that Donald Trump."
One little boy said he simply doesn't like talking about politics because voting "is just your own business."
Ultimately, it is.
But the path to being an informed citizen is often not that simple---that's why kids wait until they are 18 to vote.
In her speech---revealed earlier this month in a group of hacked emails, including the text of some of Hillary's private speeches---Hillary is explaining her political success in terms of having two different beliefs on the same issue.
In the speech Hillary talked about the "horse trading" in politics which necessitates the "creation" of two different positions.
She told the National Multifamily Housing Council:
“You just have to sort of figure out how to … balance the public and the private efforts that are necessary to be successful, politically, and that’s not just a comment about today,” Clinton said. “Politics is like sausage being made. It is unsavory, and it always has been that way, but we usually end up where we need to be. But if everybody’s watching, you know, all of the back room discussions and the deals, you know, then people get a little nervous, to say the least. So, you need both a public and a private position.”
Her doubled minded political philosophy is now on display.
The New York Times is reporting that "Federal investigators have obtained a warrant to begin searching a large cache of emails belonging to a top aid to Hillary Clinton"---the Times reports the investigators will review as much of the information as possible before election day.
Of course, more than 20 million people have already voted.
The NYT explains that "This month, agents in an unrelated investigation of the disgraced congressman Anthony B. Weiner discovered emails belonging to his estranged wife, Huma Abedin, the close aid to Mrs. Clinton. That prompted a renewed interest among FBI agents who had investigated Mrs. Clinton for her use of a private server as secretary of state and had closed the investigation in without charges in July."
What the Times fails to disclose is that there is near mutiny within the ranks of the FBI itself. Top FBI investigators have been threatening to resign en masse, because the director, Comey, would not bring charges against Clinton---even though the evidence is overwhelmingly evident that she handled America's top secrets with negligence---in the basement of she and Bill's house---which is a criminal offense.
The enforcement officers are saying last night that there is no chance the email review can be completed before election day.
Hillary is publicly demanding the FBI "make everything public," knowing full well they can't get it done,
Keep in mind, it was Mrs. Clinton that lied about her private server, lied about her emails and stonewalled investigators for the past 2 years on this matter.
Pulitzer Prize winning journalist Michael Goodwin wrote in The New York Post this weekend:
We must forgive Mark Twain for his error when he declared that “history never repeats itself but it often rhymes.” After all, he’d never met the Clintons.
If Twain were alive now, he would be astonished at how the headlines over the e-mail scandal roiling the presidential race are virtual repeats of the family’s 1990s saga in power.
The headlines are also an omen. A restoration of the Clinton presidency would be a restoration of the national and moral chaos they invariably create.
(indent) They can’t help themselves. They are corrupt and corrupters, the Typhoid Mary of politics.
Whether by nature or nurture, they are programmed to ruin. Friends, allies, institutions — all are stained by their touch.
And always, the Clintons blame somebody else. Now it’s FBI Director James Comey’s turn to embody their all-purpose bogeyman, the vast right-wing conspiracy. Somebody, sometimes everybody, is out to get them, unfairly of course.
The victim card is a Clinton family heirloom, but there are major problems playing it over Comey’s sudden reopening of the e-mail probe.
Clinton created the mess with her incredibly stupid decision to use a private server as secretary of state. Virtually every major issue dogging her, including her reputation for chronic dishonesty, was started or exacerbated by that decision, including the current one.
Even as her top aides remain mystified about why she did it, the result fits the family pattern now that Huma Abedin, her most loyal “body” person, is on the hook. It was, by all accounts, the FBI’s criminal investigation into Abedin’s pervy husband, Anthony Weiner, that led to the new cache of suspect e-mails found on a computer the couple shared.
Still, Clinton is understandably panicked because the timing of Comey’s announcement could cost her the election. Her demand that he release everything immediately is also understandable, even as she knows it is impossible for him to release potential evidence before it is examined.
Goodwin concludes his article with this: "We're likely to see more of those headlines in coming days. It's the Clinton way, where truth is always the enemy."
As I said, the first graders got it right---"Hillary lies a lot" and "honesty and not lying are important qualities for a leader."
To the relativistic secular progressive, truth is always the enemy.
