Hillary Clinton doesn’t recognize the truth.
She doesn’t care that she doesn’t recognize the truth.
And she sure as heck doesn’t care whether you think she is lying.
This woman has told so many untruths, and done it so shamelessly, that it seems superfluous to mention her latest whoppers.
But I’m going to do it anyway. Her latest whoppers will not affect a single one of her core followers. They might have an impact on undecided voters. They might have an impact on conservative voters who are repulsed by Donald Trump’s flawed character.
HILLARY WHOPPER OF THE WEEK #1:
HILLARY: “[FBI] Director Comey said my answers were truthful, and what I’ve said is consistent with what I have told the American people, that there were decisions discussed and made to classify retroactively certain of the emails.”
Of course, that is not accurate, as this sworn testimony of Director Comey explains when being questioned by Trey Gowdey:
GOWDY: Secretary Clinton said there was nothing marked classified on her emails either sent or received. Was that true?
COMEY: That’s not true.
GOWDY: Secretary Clinton said, “I did not email any classified material to anyone on my email. There is no classified material.” Was that true?
COMEY: There was classified material emailed.
Liberal reporter, Ron Fournier, a Hillary supporter, nonetheless was disgusted by her latest mistruth:
“That’s wrong and she knows it, which makes it a lie. I am angry at Clinton, because she followed up her convention with another unnecessary lie; another excuse for people to distrust her; another thin reed upon which undecided voters could justify a belated allegiance to a man who former New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg called “a dangerous demagogue.”
HILLARY WHOPPER OF THE WEEK #2:
“So, I went to work for the Children’s Defense Fund, going door-to-door in New Bedford, Mass., on behalf of children with disabilities who were denied the chance to go to school.
I remember meeting a young girl in a wheelchair on the small back porch of her house. She told me how badly she wanted to go to school — it just didn’t seem possible in those days. And I couldn’t stop thinking of my mother and what she’d gone through as a child.
It became clear to me that simply caring is not enough. To drive real progress, you have to change both hearts and laws. You need both understanding and action.
So we gathered facts. We built a coalition. And our work helped convince Congress to ensure access to education for all students with disabilities.”
There’s a problem with this touching story (which you can watch above): it’s not true.
Radio personality, Ken Pittman with radio station WBSM in New Bedford, Massachusetts, looked into the story. Here’s what he discovered:
Here’s what I learned; The Mayor of New Bedford in 1973 was a guy I happen to know, Mayor John Markey (81 years old and a lifelong Democrat now living in Dartmouth, MA. Mayor Markey is also a retired judge and a man whose credibility and character are beyond reproach. “Jack” as he is known, is eligible for both court and municipal pension but only accepts one. He is not one to “double dip”. I called Jack and asked him a few questions about handicap services in 1973 at the New Bedford Public Schools, including wheelchair accessibility.
“I took over as Mayor in January of 1973. We had a budget for vans with drivers and provided services to students with disabilities. It was Tremblay Bus. They would pick them up and drop them off at their homes. Now, they may not have been able to go to the local school, depending on whether or not the schools were accessible for wheelchairs but there were many schools then which could and did accommodate our handicapped students in wheelchairs”.
“In fact, we had a local guy who was a paraplegic, injured in a diving accident who came to my office many times to advocate for the disabled and I actually spent an entire day in 1973 in a wheelchair to better understand the challenges they face everyday. Soon after that we were cutting out sidewalks for wheelchairs and doing things in New Bedford before the laws ever compelled us to.”
So despite the progressive and good works of the New Bedford leadership in 1973 to make the city schools and streets more handicap accessible, Hillary (no pun intended) rolled New Bedford local government under the bus last night in front of the world. And needed to lie to do it. It just didn’t seem possible in those days Hillary, because it wasn’t true in 1973 New Bedford.
What is disturbing about this woman is that she lies when there is no need to lie, such as her claim that she was dead broke coming out of the White House; that she came under sniper fire in Bosnia; that all of her grandparents were immigrants; that she was named after Sir Edmund Hillary; that she was turned down by the Marines in 1975; that an “insensitive” Youtube video was responsible for Benghazi.
What does it say about the mental health of a person who is a congenital liar? Perhaps it says they’re not fit to be President of the United States of America.
