Hillary Clinton: Wall Street Shill, Threat to World Peace

Hillary Clinton: Wall Street Shill, Threat to World Peace

by Stephen Lendman

A Trump presidency would be an anti-populist crapshoot on what outrageous domestic and geopolitical schemes he’d cook up following earlier ones. 

A previous article said his only redeeming quality is he’s not Hillary Clinton - the most recklessly dangerous US presidential aspirant in memory, a menace risking global war and full-blown tyranny.

Her despicable record as first lady, US senator and secretary of state exposed her villainy - revealing a war-profiteers dream, a Wall Street favorite.

A previous article said she loves Goldman Sachs. A leaked transcript of her June 2013 speech to their officials revealed comments never heard on the stump.

She said productive work by ordinary Americans didn’t make the nation great. “(I)t’s due to (Wall Street) investing, credit and economic stewardship.”

“(F)inancial wizardry…is what makes America great and powerful,” she claimed, omitting how Goldman Sachs and other Wall Street crooks operate - making money the old-fashioned way by stealing it, scamming investors, manipulating markets, bribing political officials.

As first lady, she urged husband Bill to bomb Belgrade. She orchestrated Obama’s premeditated wars on Libya and Syria, raping and destroying both countries, supported Bush’s naked aggression on Afghanistan and Iraq, still raging.

At a 2014 Long Beach, CA campaign fundraiser, she outrageously compared Putin allowing Crimeans to return to Russia in accordance with international law to “what Hitler did back in the 30s,” preceding WW II.

She accused him of wanting control regained over former Soviet republics and Warsaw Pact countries. No evidence suggests either intention.

She’s more likely to confront Russia militarily than any of the other loathsome presidential aspirants, possibly risking WW III to serve her agenda.

New York Times editors endorsed her candidacy, reinventing her deplorable public record, criminality demanding accountability, not high praise.

The Times is at it again, calling her diabolical vision “bold,” saying it’s “broadly popular.” Campaign rhetoric disdains straight talk - featuring promises made to be broken, serving monied interests exclusively at the expense of beneficial social change.

The Times is a virtual Clinton mouthpiece, part of her campaign, ignoring her villainy, inventing a nonexistent persona - ludicrously claiming she’s “heir to an enormously successful bipartisan governing tradition.”

I’ve said many times America’s political system is too corrupted to fix, a one-party fascist state with two wings, in lockstep on all major issues, serving monied interests exclusively, shutting out responsible independent alternatives, waging endless wars of aggression.

A Clinton presidency is the worst of all deplorable options. WW III may follow.
