Hillary Clinton is the establishment elite quintessence that Barack Obama and benevolent liberals everywhere have vociferously battled to dismantle for decades.
“She will say anything and do nothing.” An up-and-coming senator of DNC 2004 fame, who ripped through the entrenched paradigm with a refreshing alacrity, our current president, Barack Obama – he spoke those words of Mrs. Clinton.
And it’s true. Just watch the before-and-after videos. Every smart and honest Democrat will acknowledge that Hillary Clinton is without a rudder. She tacks whenever the winds of public opinion shift. A prime example is gay marriage, a precept that Clinton ardently opposed for three decades of public life. Until 2013.
Pew Research shows that the American populace always rejected gay marriage. Until 2013. Causality cannot be determined simply by watching videos of Clinton saying, “I believe that marriage is not just a bond, but a sacred bond between a man and a woman” in 2004, and then saying, less than a decade later, “I support marriage for lesbian and gay couples.” Perhaps the sharp policy lurch is pure coincidence.
We do know that cravenly shielding true intent from the people is a primary objective of hers. In one of many leaked speeches to the elite donor class, Clinton lauded her ability to hide her foundational beliefs from public scrutiny. “If everybody’s watching, all the back room discussions and the deals, then people get a little nervous, to say the least. So you need both a public and a private position.”
If the people are not exposed to the base ideology of their leading candidate, determining when their views align becomes problematic. So what is her base ideology? If the formerly private speeches are indicatory, she is the wheel on the entrenched, globalist superyacht – being yanked and flipped while her controllers fire cannons at the levees of sovereignty worldwide.
In a private speech to Banco Itaú, a Brazilian bank with $445 billion in assets, Mrs. Clinton described her dream. Hillary Clinton told the banking monolith, “My dream is a hemispheric common market, with open trade and open borders.” Perhaps this is her base ideology. An American Union with no international boundaries. No more sovereign nations. Thirty-five former countries coalescing, congealing like the European Union, into a piece of an obtuse, irrational puzzle.
Sound like the American Dream?
In contrast, Donald Trump has been remarkably consistent on myriad issues, some of which have precluded him from mainstream Republican support. He has openly endorsed gay marriage for decades, a remarkable fact considering swarms of leftists have sycophantically parroted claims that he is a hopeless bigot.
Trump is wrong on many issues. Torture is one of them. “We should go tougher than waterboarding,” he stated early this year in a primary debate. In the same debate, Trump later said, “When you get these terrorists, you have to take out their families.” Such policies are reckless and corrosive to individual liberties.
Trump also advocated the compulsory forfeiture, by threat of force, of Apple Computer’s proprietary technology, which would grant government officials access to private data at their whim.
Some might call Trump’s candid nature refreshing in its lack of political prowess, but the rhetoric should raise alarms for civil libertarians. “Boycott Apple until such a time as they give that security number,” he demanded of a crowd in February. “I just thought of it – boycott Apple!” While Trump garners a large swath of Libertarian support, the evidence demonstrates that his instinct drives him towards an uber-strong central government that views personal rights as nuisances.
Clinton has advocated the termination of unfavorable media outlets and curbs on second amendment rights. There is obviously an overlapping lack of respect for private citizens.
The difference between the political ideologies becomes clearer when examining the issue of American sovereignty. “Americanism, not globalism, will be our credo!” Trump has emphatically shouted this mantra at his campaign stops.
Trump wants a wall. He wants tariffs. He wants to punish trade-cheaters. He wants to boost the US economy, even at the expense of foreign countries.
Clinton wants open borders. She wants open trade. She wants a union of The Americas, propping up third-world economies even at the expense of the United States.
These differences lie at the heart of the divide between the two frontrunners. The giant banks and hedge funds and lobbyist groups and civic unions and NGOs and school systems and media outlets and basically-all-extant-governed-by-current-law-organizations support Hillary Clinton.
They all have the same dream – to stay on the ship – to coast wherever the world-rulers guide her.
Trump wants to change course. He does have a rudder, and he plans to use it if the ship doesn’t run him over.
