Hillary Clinton: Totally, totally trustworthy and stuff

Hillary Clinton: Totally, totally trustworthy and stuff April 24, 2015

Here’s what Lady Macbeth has been doing with her power and how she will serve the American people when elected President:

  • In September 2005, Bill Clinton traveled to Kazakhstan and met his friend Frank Giustra (pronounced joo-strah), who wanted to buy uranium mines there.
  • Clinton gave a press conference with Kazakhstan President Nursultan Nazarbayev, in which he endorsed the leader’s human rights record and democratic progress, even though he had just received 91% of the vote in an allegedly rigged election. The event was a public relations coup for Nazarbayev.
  • A couple of days later, Kazakhstan gave Giustra the uranium concessions he requested.
  • Giustra then donated $31 million to the Clinton Foundation with a promise of $100 million more to follow.

The Westinghouse Deal

  • Later, Kazakhstan wanted to purchase an equity stake in Westinghouse, an American company that serves the civilian nuclear industry. This would require approval by the Hillary Clinton-run State Department.
  • Giustra set up a meeting between Kazakhstan energy representatives and Bill Clinton in his Chappaqua home. Giustra and Bill Clinton both denied this meeting ever took place until a New York Times reporter produced photographic evidence.
  • The State Department approved the deal and KazAtomProm (Kazakhstan’s state-owned nuclear company) purchased 10% of the company.

Putin and Uranium One

  • Giustra’s company was merged into Uranium One, which controls about half of U.S. uranium.
  • The Russians wanted to purchase Uranium One, another deal which would require State Department approval.
  • Uranium One’s major shareholders gave tens of millions of dollars to the Clinton Foundation, which the foundation didn’t disclose.
  • Hillary’s State Department approved the deal and Russia bought Uranium One. Putin can now sell this nuclear fuel to Iran.

When you are losing the NY Times and MSNBC, consider the possibility, Mrs. Nixon, that the fault is not in the Vast Right Wing Conspiracy, but in yourself.

    Peanuts. Meaningless.

    If I were you, I would be MUCH more worried by the fact that the Clinton Foundation recently received large, undisclosed grants from the Marsh Refinery in Innsmouth.

  • ManyMoreSpices

    “Lady Macbeth” is okay, but I don’t think that Lady Macbeth was nearly as annoying. Hillary is a 3 a.m. car alarm. I like “America’s Ex-Wife” a lot better.

  • Mark S. (not for Shea)

    Yep. It’s very disheartening, especially when you consider that the opposition party is running a cadre of clowns, and the Democratic Party is handing Clinton the baton without so much as a debate.
    .
    All the more reason not to put our trust in princes — or princesses.

    • ManyMoreSpices

      I don’t get this “cadre of clowns” statement. It seems to lack historical perspective.

      I mean, say whatever you want about the Republican party. It’s not any more of a clown car this time around than it was in the past, and it’s not any more of a three-ring circus than what the Democrats have given us every four years.

      • Mark S. (not for Shea)

        “It’s not any more of a clown car this time around than it was in the past, and it’s not any more of a three-ring circus than what the Democrats have given us every four years.”

        Exactly. Which is why it’s so disheartening.

        We set the bar pretty low anyway, but every election cycle both parties dig out shovels and start digging. I mean … Ted Cruz??? Comparing him to a clown is an insult to clowns. 😉

        • ManyMoreSpices

          I really don’t get the Ted Cruz insta-punchline. Dude was the Solicitor General of Texas. He’s a more talented lawyer than Obama is, and Obama gets worshiped as some sort of Learned Hand/Ben Cardozo/Solomon hybrid. What has he done that’s so out-there to set him apart from the junior senator from Illinois who had presidential aspirations?

          • AdamD

            He’s loved by the left, because he was ‘clean and articular’ according to Biden.

          • Newp Ort

            Dude’s a total mope. That voice, that face. Totally irrelevant to his qualifications, I know. But I do hate his politics, too. Man, could they have found a less likeable, less charismatic guy?

            Not to say Hillary’s any better – Pete the Greek nailed it: 3 AM car alarm, America’s Ex-Wife. And when she tries to display charisma it’s about as convincing as Al Gore, which saying something (really bad)!

          • Sue Korlan

            He ripped into a group of Middle East Christians whose populations are being decimated for failing to speak up for Israel.

            • Joseph

              He not only ripped them, he implied that they deserved what they were getting because they weren’t even real Christians to begin with. *That’s* scary.

            • ManyMoreSpices

              Wrong, but not crazy.

          • Joseph

            He’s a Protestant Evangelical anti-Catholic. If you’re a Catholic, this should concern you because that makes him no different than the Protestant and/or Atheist anti-Catholics currently running the government.

            • ManyMoreSpices

              That’s interesting, and it’s something that I’ll want to investigate.

              But the thing is, this is the first I’m hearing of it. I’m not denying that it’s true, but what I’m saying is that I hear the “Ted Cruz is crazy” thing from the left because – as far as I can tell – he’s a conservative, and therefore crazy. The left isn’t saying “he’s crazy because he’s anti-Catholic.” They’d never say such a thing.

      • chezami

        Nope. The GOP has a special Crazy Factor that the Dems lack these day. Sure there are crazy Dems at the fringe. But the GOP puts crazy front and center these days. It makes crazy a cause celebre.

        • ManyMoreSpices

          [[citation needed]]

          Call me crazy (ha ha), but when you write ontological impossibility and straight-up child murder into your platform, when you advocate banning books that criticize your heroes, when you call someone a bigot because they think that boys shouldn’t use the girls’ bathroom, and your entire party has been enraptured in a weird personality cult since 2007, insanity is endemic within your party.

          Fish don’t know it’s wet. Democrats – and those sliding left – don’t know they’re surrounded by crazy.

          • AdamD

            Remember, GOP is always the crazier on this blog now, don’t argue with facts.

          • Matt Talbot

            your entire party has been enraptured in a weird personality cult since 2007

            I say this not as a partisan for Obama (he’s nowhere near being enough of an old-school “liberal” on the economic issues I care about, and obviously way too much of a “liberal” on the social issues I also care about) but that whole meme started as a page from the Karl Rove playbook: Take your opponents greatest strength (in Obama’s case, personal charisma and a rare gift for oratory) and try to turn it into a weakness.

            Reading Mark’s blog, it should be pretty clear that he is not a partisan political operative. You certainly are talking like one for the Republicans.

            • ManyMoreSpices

              “Rare gift for oratory.”

              Yeah. He’s a real Cicero. Does anybody still believe that stuff?

              Look, if you don’t remember the creepy Obama cult, you’ve got a bad memory or you weren’t paying attention in 2008. This isn’t a Karl Rove (“Karl Rove” is 2008 for “Koch Brothers”) invention. This actually happened.

              • D.T. McCameron

                “Yeah. He’s a real Cicero. Does anybody still believe that stuff?”

                That’s always struck me as odd. He’s passable, I suppose, and I’ve definitely heard worse….but his following and acclaim arose before and independently of his actual performance.

                • Rebecca Fuentes

                  He was the not-Bush, so he was all things wonderful.

        • Dave G.

          No, they don’t. All sides are equally capable of fielding crazy. The crazy Dems are at the fringe because unless they do something scandalous that can’t be ignored, they’re ignored (unless you watch FOX). Remember the 2004 primaries? You had some pretty rare cases in the early months on the Democrat side (at one point I believe Al Sharpton actually received support in some of the primaries and caucuses). It’s just now the media has declared the presidency Hillary’s to lose, just like they handed the primaries to either Clinton or Obama in 2008. So the news isn’t really focusing on any other candidates for the Democrats, crazy or sane. With the Republicans? If you have 2% in the polls you’re being covered at the top of the hour on CNN as if you’re the presumptive nominee. And that includes long shots and folks who are as crazy as the crazies who simply don’t get the coverage if they’re Democrats.

        • Sue Korlan

          Given that the head of the Democratic National Committee said she had no problem aborting 7 pound unborn babies, I’m not so sure those crazy Dems are all on the fringe.

    • No major party runs a cycle without some people who are very unlikely to get the nomination. The Democratic party officially has Vermin Supreme and Jeff Boss but nobody cites them in major media.

      A few of the serious candidates who most ordinary people do not consider are clowns are crazy:

      Scott Walker – Gov of Wisconsin
      Carly Fiorina – Former CEO HP
      Jeb Bush – Former Gov of Florida

      There are others but more controversial.

      • Alma Peregrina

        I’m not from America and I don’t know any of the names you talk about…

        But I would totally vote for Vermin Supreme. Such a cool name for a president.

  • J.R.R.

    Wow. “Lady MacBeth.” So true.

  • Robin Warchol

    wouldn’t Jezebel be better? Her husband was like King Ahab.

    • Alma Peregrina

      Also Lady Macbeth had a conscience somewhere…

  • Michaelus

    Maybe next Sunday churches ought to collect money that can be used to bribe politicians to vote for pro life and freedom of conscience laws. $10-$20 million seems to b the price you have to pay. It is so simple – no more marches, letters, arguments. Just bribes.

    • Newp Ort

      Why should conservatives pay money for for empty promises from their favorite politicians when they’ve been gorging on a free buffet for years?

  • David

    Feed the poor.

  • Dan13

    I’m surprised they weren’t to looking to purchase Potassium. Everyone knows that Kazakhstan is the number one exporter of Potassium.

    And, “Kazakhstan is the greatest country in the world. All other countries, are run by little girls.”
