One rainy evening, three people walked into a bar and sat down. One was grim, another solemn, while the sole woman among them was absolutely giddy. The bartender poured a few shots of whiskey and said to the trio, “Why so grim, so solemn, so giddy?”
The grim man with squinty eyes and a huge forehead went first. “My life is over. I ‘conflated’ a couple of war stories, said I was aboard a helicopter in Iraq that got shot down when I wasn’t. Now, everything I’ve worked for my whole life is gone.”
“Gee, that’s tough,” said the bartender.
The even more-horse-faced solemn man next to him went next. “I said I won a bunch of medals for honor and bravery as captain of a fast patrol boat in Vietnam, but then all my comrades swiftly said I was lying. I lost the job I really wanted.”
“Damn. Rough. What about you, lady?” the bartender said to the broadly smiling blonde.
“Ha! I once lied and said I out-ran sniper fire in Bosnia. Actually I walked calmly across the tarmac to meet a little girl who gave me a poem, that’s it. Then we broke for beer. After, Sheryl Crowe sang some songs and guess what? I’m going to be the next president of the United States! Don’t I just rock?”
No prizes for who those three in the political joke above really are, the first – fired NBC Nightly News anchor, Brian Williams, the Iraq helicopter crash fibber, the second – 2004 US Presidential candidate John Kerry, the Vietnam Swift-Boat embellisher and the third – 2016 US Presidential candidate, Hillary Rodham Clinton, the serial liar.
Let’s just zero down to the most prolific, the most shameless of them all – Hillary Clinton, a woman for whom, lying has become second nature. Presently she looks like a sure shot for the Democratic Presidential nominee, in a flawed electoral process that begins two years prior to the actual elections and elects a President through a strange phenomenon called the electoral college which happens not to truly represent the will of the majority.
In any case, an American Presidential Election is unwinable unless an aspirant has at least $500 – 600 million to spend, a sum that is more than the GDP of most nations in the third world. It is an expenditure that does not generate any social development whatsoever, except contributing to the bottom lines of the big American media empires.
But that’s okay, this piece is not about election expenditures. It is about a woman who has a strange character flaw – she is a pathological liar. She lies openly on live TV and if you watch her saying the things that she says, you will find it hard not to get the feeling that she actually belives what she says.
Yes, let’s face it – the US is a birthplace of rich and famous liars and the breeding ground for dumb, forgiving voters. Just as they repeatedly condone philandering among their male leaders, so do they go into denial about their liars. And just as those philanderers have not been the least bit hobbled by their sexual addictions, so do the liars reinvent themselves, rely on the collective lack of memory of the American voters and wrap themselves in their designer haloes.
Here are some of Hillary’s lies caught on tape…..
Chelsea Clinton was jogging around the World Trade Center on 9/11. Excruciatingly insensitive to the families of the victims and the survivors of this horrific attack. Hillary later admitted that Chelsea was actually safely in her Union Square apartment at the time of the attack.
I remember landing under sniper fire. There was supposed to be some kind of a greeting ceremony at the airport, but instead we just ran with our heads down to get into the vehicles to get to our base. Conjures an image of a woman on a bosnian tarmac, crouching and running as machine gun rounds kick up earth all around – thaka thaka thaka thaka. In the actual CBS video footage, she and Chelsea can be seen getting off a helicopter and walking calmly across the airstrip, smiling and greeting well wishers. But hey, anybody can (mis)remember trivia like deadly life-threatening sniper fire, right? Here is the link to the CBS video that bared her lie……
So when I was born, my mother named me Hillary and she always told me, ‘ It’s because of Sir Edmund Hillary’. This one is just embarrassing. Sir Hillary didn’t actually climb the Everest (or achieve any fame worth naming a child after) until Hillary Clinton was 6 years old. Ouch. So either Hillary was actually a freak of nature, born after a long long stint inside her mom’s womb when she was already 6, or her mom waited until Hillary was 6 to name her. From the age of 1 to 5, her parents might have just called her Rodham-1 or Letsteachherhowtolie.
We were dead broke when we left the White House. Sure. Poor dears. The Clintons only made $12 million the year after Bill Clinton’s Presidency. Sheesh. I guess when you’re used to living off the taxpayer’s billions, funding your vacations, private air travel and security, food, housing and all, a measly few millions could be a bit rough, huh?
I was instrumental in the Northern Ireland peace process. Yeah, right, except those who actually were at the negotiating table did not see even a hologram of Hillary Clinton.
I am just like you. Sure, every woman in America has one child who went to private school, was married to a President, had a personal chef, flew in a environment polluting personal jet, had been senior partner in a law firm that was once infamous as a fraudsters’ safe haven and who now makes about $200K for every speaking engagement.
There is a corollary to this –
If you are a white Christian leader, no matter how pathetic you really turn out to be, you are sure to have blindly faithful white Christian voters, some of whom in the heartland can barely read and write, who love to gulp down your white lies and you are sure to have minorities who have nowhere else to go, trapped inside the greatest sham two-party ‘democracy’ in the world.
Hillary Rodham Clinton could well be the next President of the United States
May God Help America
May the rest of the world find a way to beat the odds
