Those never-ending lies

As the bulk of corporate media tries to browbeat us all into supporting War Hawk Hillary Clinton, I would urge you to read Debra J. Saunders (TAMPA BAY NEWSPAPERS WEEKLY):

Recently, the State Department’s independent watchdog, the Office of the Inspector General, issued a report on Clinton’s “email records management.” The report includes information that shows that practically everything Clinton has said about her use of a private server is false.

Last year, Clinton said that she used the private server “for convenience.” She talked as if she had not given the matter much thought. That claim was unbelievable at the time. Given the family’s extensive history of being under investigation, she of all lawyers had to know that government correspondence belongs to the people, not the placeholders. As the Washington Post editorialized, the new report shows that Clinton’s decision “was not a casual oversight.” The Secretary of State was so busy trying to protect her self-interest that she repeatedly ignored warnings about cyber security risks.

Even after the inspector general’s report was released, Clinton continued to spin lies. She told ABC News and CNN that her use of a private server was “allowed.” It was not. Indeed, the report found that her modus operandi presented “significant security risks.” State Department officials warned of hacking attempts, which she did not heed. In an email she explained, “I don’t want any risk of the personal being accessible.” So she risked national security. According to the report, when staff spoke up about those risks, a staffer was told, “never to speak of the secretary’s personal email system again.”

She will never stop lying.

I will not vote for Hillary Clinton.

I doubt that I am the only one who feels that way.
