The real interesting part of the latest Quinnipiac University National Poll, is not the fact that 60% of Americans think Hillary Clinton is dishonest, but that 40% of Americans don’t.
You’d truly have to be a certified zombie, or living your life entirely under a rock, to not recognize how completely shady and corrupt this woman is. Fear not, I’ll provide a plethora of links at the end of this post, but here’s a recent example that went completely under the radar.
In a desperate attempt to appear populist, Clinton tweeted the following last week:
“We need to end private prisons. Protecting public safety…should never be outsourced or left to unaccountable corporations.” —Hillary
— Hillary Clinton (@HillaryClinton) October 30, 2015
She tweeted that, seemingly completely unconcerned that any of her lobotomized followers would ever connect the dots to this story, which I highlighted over the summer: How Progressive – Private Prison Company Lobbyists are Raising Funds for Hillary. Here’s an excerpt:
As immigration and incarceration issues become central to the 2016 presidential campaign, lobbyists for two major prison companies are serving as top fundraisers for Hillary Clinton.
Corrections Corporation of America and the Geo Group could both see their fortunes turning if there are fewer people to lock up in the future.
Richard Sullivan, of the lobbying firm Capitol Counsel, is a bundler for the Clinton campaign, bringing in $44,859 in contributions in a few short months. Sullivan is also a registered lobbyist for the Geo Group, a company that operates a number of jails, including immigrant detention centers, for profit.
Moving along, at least 60% of Americans get the joke. From Quinnipiac:
Clinton has the lowest rating for honesty as American voters say 60 – 36 percent she is not honest and trustworthy. Trump is not honest and trustworthy, voters say 58 – 38 percent.
Clinton is deemed less trustworthy than Donald Trump, which is a remarkably achievement.
Moving along, who’s considered the most trustworthy? Interestingly enough, it’s the current Republican front runner, Ben Carson.
Carson gets the best honesty grades among top candidates, a positive 62 – 24 percent.
Fascinating. So how does he do head to head against Clinton?
One year before Election Day 2016, Dr. Ben Carson is virtually tied with Donald Trump as strong front-runners for the Republican nomination, and Carson tops former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton 50 – 40 percent in the final face-off, according to a Quinnipiac University National poll released today.
Clinton’s traditional lead among women evaporates as American voters pick Carson over the Democrat 50 – 40 percent. Women go 45 percent for Carson and 44 percent for Clinton, while men back the Republican 55 – 35 percent.
The pantsuit revolutionary certainly must be squirming when confronted with those sobering numbers.
Nevertheless, despite blatant dishonestly and shadiness permeating from Clinton’s every pore…
Only 8 percent of Democrats say they “would definitely not support” Clinton.
Brilliant. These people simply ignore reality in favor of some imagined existential battle with Republicans. They brush off facts, such as the following, pointed out by the National Journal:
Congressional investigators uncovered evidence that Clinton knew within hours that terrorists were behind the raid. According to the father of a former Navy SEAL who died in the raid, Clinton stood before his son’s coffin and privately told himthe United States would arrest the filmmaker responsible for the attack.
Clinton has apologized for putting all her official email on a private server but continues to claim incorrectly that the actions had precedent and were authorized. She vowed in March that no classified material was ever on the server, a claim proven false. She now tells voters none of the emails were marked classified, which she must know is irrelevant; people are prosecuted for mishandling unmarked U.S. secrets.
Furthermore, Clinton insists that she voluntarily turned over the email to the State Department, though in fact, she had kept the government documents secret until Congress discovered her stash. She insists she voluntarily turned over the server, failing to mention the FBI’s strong desire to scour the storage unit as part of its ongoing investigation of her actions.
Of course, that’s just the tip of the iceberg.
