An October 28 article at The Hill is a classis of “Well, Duh!” journalism. it nearly perfectly illustrates what happens when one aligns themselves with a corrupt, immoral, hateful cult of personality, dear leader. In a way, it’s at once ironically pitiful, and astonishingly disgusting.
Hillary Clinton’s allies were cast into a state of anger and disbelief over the FBI’s stunning announcement that it is reviewing new emails ‘pertinent’ to Clinton’s use of a private email server.
That shocking development — revealed in a letter to Congress by FBI Director James Comey — pushed some of Clinton’s allies past the boiling point.
They said they were ‘dumbfounded’ by the revelation that the new FBI review may have been spurred by a separate investigation into Anthony Weiner sending lewd texts to a minor. Weiner is separated from wife Huma Abedin, one of Clinton’s closest aides.
Well, Duh! That’s what happens when you engage in serial violations of the law and allow national security secrets to be handled by people like Huma Abedin–a woman with intimate connections to some of the world’s worst Islamists–and Anthony Weiner whose brain is clearly in his penis, and whose impulse control is, to say the least, nonexistent. Anyone with two brains cells to rub together could have predicted that such things would pop up (sorry; couldn’t resist).
And they worried that Clinton’s unconventional email arrangement had finally caught up to her and might imperil her presidential bid less than two weeks before Election Day.
Well, Duh! When your dear leader has no one around her telling her “no, you can’t do that; it’s illegal,” this sort of thing tends to happen.
I’m livid, actually,’ one Clinton surrogate told The Hill. ‘This has turned into malpractice. It’s an unforced error at this point. I have no idea what Comey is up to but the idea this email issue is popping back up again is outrageous. It never should have occurred in the first place. Someone somewhere should have told her no. And they didn’t and now we’re all paying the price.
Well, Duh! Consider the bubble in which this “Clinton surrogate” lives. And just to be obvious, does any sentient being think Hillary Clinton is ever going to hire anyone that might so much as think of telling her “no”?
They’re “livid,” but mostly at the FBI Director (OK, to be fair, any honest person has a right to be livid with that twerp). They’re also upset with political malpractice, in essence, Hillary and her closest minions didn’t cover her crimes well enough. And the suggestion “it never should have occurred in the first place” is not about being angry that Clinton committed so many crimes, repeatedly breached national security, got Americans killed, made the world a far more dangerous place, lied to the FBI, Congress and the American people, over and over and over again. It’s about the announcement that she’d being investigated 11 days before the election. Told her “no?” To what? Everything she said and did as Secretary of State, and everything she said and did going all the way back to her first day in the Arkansas Governor’s mansion? Should someone have told her no before she was kicked off the investigative staff of the Watergate Committee for being unethical and lying? Or should we continue back even further, when she, as an undergraduate or law school student worshipped at the feet of communists, Saul Alinsky, and other anti-liberty degenerates?
Wasn’t there a single honest person in the entire Department of State? Anyone, who, seeing Clinton’s serial depredations, could stand up and honestly leak the truth? Obviously not.
This surrogate, and all Clinton surrogates, is angry because Clinton might lose, and their gravy train won’t leave the station. That will put a serious crimp in their never-ending quests for graft, corruption and political power over the lives of the little people.
Another ally called the campaign’s mood something akin to ‘paralysis,’ and blamed Weiner’s behavior for railroading the campaign.
Well, Duh! Actually, Weiner isn’t responsible for Clinton’s crimes, nor those of Huma Abedin, assuming national security secrets–or something much, much worse–have been found on her unsecured, personal electronic devices. Weiner’s weiner is probably just about the only thing involved that isn’t paralyzed. Duh anyway.
One strategist said the developments would further cement the notion that Clinton has something to hide.
It’s made people think there’s always going to be something around the Clintons, some investigation, some inquiry,’ the strategist said. ‘It never goes away.
Well, Duh! That’s because, as with all career criminals, the number of crimes that are discovered are always far, far smaller than the number of crimes they’ve actually committed. There is always a vast treasure trove of undiscovered felonies waiting to surface. With Hillary, and Bill Clinton, it will never, ever go away. There will always be something “around the Clintons,” because they’re criminals.
Campaign chairman John Podesta and other Democrats lashed out at the FBI over the timing of its announcement and for the lack of details in Comey’s letter.
They demanded clarity, fearing that the open nature of the investigation would lead speculation to run wild.
‘FBI Director Comey should immediately provide the American public more information than is contained in the letter he sent to eight Republican committee chairmen,’ Podesta said in a statement.
‘Already, we have seen characterizations that the FBI is ‘reopening’ an investigation but Comey’s words do not match that characterization. Director Comey’s letter refers to emails that have come to light in an unrelated case, but we have no idea what those emails are and the Director himself notes they may not even be significant.
Well, Duh! Podesta is entirely safe in making that demand because he knows it will take much longer to complete the investigation and releasing anything will merely allow the Clintonites and Obamites to more effectively lie, stonewall, and destroy evidence. Perhaps even a few more potential witnesses might meet with unfortunate accidents. If Doug Band isn’t on the run, he ought to be.
It is extraordinary that we would see something like this just 11 days out from a presidential election,’ Podesta added.
Well, Duh! That’s just because no presidential candidate has ever before been such an unrepentant, serial criminal. Oh, and Comey’s idiotic and criminal pseudo-exoneration of Clinton didn’t help much either. The little people that do the work in law enforcement agencies tend to become angry when their “leaders” betray the rule of law and destroy decades of hard won integrity for moral, intellectual reprobates like Hillary Clinton.
After the FBI news broke on Friday, the campaign seemed resigned to Trump and other Republicans campaigning on the email issue in the final days of the race.
‘In the short term at least, this does provide Republicans with something they can all hang their hat on, at a time when they’ve been fighting with each other so much — so that can have a salutary effect by shoring up the GOP base and distract from the daily drama around Trump himself,’ one longtime Clinton adviser said.
Well, Duh! Oh, you mean the “daily drama around Trump” the Democrats have created out of thin air (Yes, I know he’s done plenty of dumb things, but that’s a topic for another article)? The drama created by paid Democrat thugs that have visited the White House hundreds of times? The drama created by thousands of Clinton minion’s e-mails released by Wikileaks? And of course, absent this, there is nothing in Clinton’s past for Republican’s to run on. Well, to be fair, that’s true if we’re talking about Clinton’s accomplishments; she has none. Disasters, those she has, but accomplishments, ask a Democrat to name one and stand by for the prolonged sound of chirping crickets.
The surrogate predicted the news would also hurt Democrats in down ballot elections.
‘I assume Senate Democrats are peeing in their pants right now,’ the surrogate said. ‘The [Republican] ads are being cut as we speak.
Well Duh! One can only hope. The Republicans aren’t known as “the stupid party,” without good reason. With Hillary Clinton, the presidential race has always been about using the media, the Obama Administration, and every other dirty trick known to man to keep the public from finding out the truth about Clinton, or at least, to keep them from finding out too soon. Oooops!
They [Democrats] believe that the presidential race is set and will not be meaningfully impacted by Comey’s announcement. Millions of people voted early, when Clinton held about a 6-point lead nationally.
Well, Duh! See my previous point. Have the Clintonistas held off the truth about Hillary long enough? I can’t think of a better reason to seriously limit early voting and to require photo ID everywhere.
And Democrats believe scandal fatigue has set in over the emails, essentially rendering new developments meaningless.
Voters have been hearing about Clinton’s email troubles for more than a year, Democrats say, yet she’s favored to win the White House.
‘This is just a distraction,’ said Democratic pollster Mark Mellmann.
‘People had already reached their conclusions about the emails. Certainly everyone on my side of the aisle would rather be talking about something else, but I don’t think it’s sufficient to change the outcome.
Well, Duh! This is what Democrat strategy is all about. Have the Democrats so enervated the national character with scandal fatigue, and with Barack Obama’s never-ending stream of illegal, unconstitutional imperial edicts, that the American people now expect the denizens of the highest offices in the land to be soulless criminals? Is that now a minimum qualification for the Presidency? If so, America is over. It’s not like we haven’t been warned. This was predicted in the Federalist Papers and elsewhere. Our Founders knew well the horrors of leaders bereft of morality. Is this our fate? We’ll find out on November 8, and we’ll be doing it to ourselves.
Rather than panic over Clinton’s new troubles, Democrats expressed outrage at FBI director Comey for dropping what they view as a politically motivated bombshell close to the election.
‘It is extraordinary for the FBI director to do this 11 days before the election,’ said Democratic strategist Steve McMahon. ‘It violates the Justice Department’s rules about engaging in investigations in a way that might impact our democracy. It is extraordinary and very, very surprising.
Well, Duh! Of course it’s surprising. Democrats thought the fix was in once and for all. Now Obama will probably have to pardon Hillary and a bunch of her minions; he’s never liked any of them, except probably the spies he placed in their midst.
And let’s not forget how they praised Comey for great courage, patriotism and integrity when he gave Clinton a pass. Now, of course, he’s going to be a pariah at all the right Beltway parties and gatherings. Pity, that. And it was all going so well for Comey. For the rule of law, the FBI, and the nation, not so much.
If, after all of this, we still elect Hillary Clinton, we deserve what we get.
