Why Hillary will be the next POTUS - Page 93

post #1381 of 3262
The nod to legality was pre-emptive because I am not sure what point you're trying to make (aside from the obvious -- politicians, even those espousing supposed anti-WallSt views, take money from Wall St).

The SEC and many financial firms have a two-way relationship sending minions back and forth so it wouldn't be a big surprise to see yet another hop on board

Well, at least this "pre-emptive" thing tacitly acknowledges the straw man.

I'm just pointing out yet another part of the obvious hypocrisy and the sale of the Clintons to the highest bidder. It's nothing new with them, to be sure, but some people seem to gloss over it.

This is true and to the extent that folks have forgotten, intentionally or otherwise, what a shapeshifter she is on a variety of issues (conveniently timed gay marriage switch, taking credit for Kerry's work on the Iran deal after vehemently opposing it, she's likely to the right of Bush on Palestine, she'll drone all of western Asia, etc).

Contrast that with Trump, who is on record as opposing the Iraq war since 2005!

Can WWIII very well take place or begin in cyberspace ? alien.gif

If true, points to Russia and Trump. Russia allegedly attacks DNC server (non-governmental institution) and DNC useful idiots respond with cyberattack on government infrastructure?
Is Clinton camp response measured enough and shows good leadership? Will that woman attack a nation like Russia to pay back for her embarrassing election dealings?
I see only political problems here for her.
Random shit from Trump seems more "thought through"...which is not saying much for DNC organization.

Slavery and concentration camps were legal.

Straw poll:

Who thinks at least some of the big donations to the Clinton Foundation bought some influence? I hear all kinds of talk, for instance, about the sale of uranium reserves and a big donation when she had to sign off on the deal as Secretary of State. Any credence?

Don't you think it's a bit much to draw parallels between receiving campaign funds and slavery or concentration camps.

Isn't that how the world works?  Big donations always buy influence.

No the "World" does not work like this, American politics do.
