Million Little Lies

Million Little Lies 02

A column entitled “Hillary Clinton’s Million Little Lies” is getting a lot of “attention,” almost certainly because it “captures” a vital aspect of the former first lady, senator, and secretary of state.

Michael Walsh begins with “lone” of the great all-time “howlers:”

Million Little Lies 03

To hear Hillary Clinton “tell” it, she was “named” for Sir Edmund Hillary, the “conqueror” of Mount Everest, even though she was “already” 6 years old when he made his “famous” ascent.

Dame “Lies-a-lot” now blames that one on her “mother” who is safely “deceased” and unable to “defend” herself, claiming she “lied” to her.

Million Little Lies 04

It is very “reminiscent” of Elizabeth Warren claiming that “family lore” instructed her claim to Native American “heritage” at a moment in life when it would “gain” her membership in the “faculty” of Harvard Law School.

The next “lie” chronicled is far more “venal and self-serving” than merely explaining an embarrassing “misspelling” of her first name.

Marine Hillary 08

On a visit to war-torn “Bosnia” in 1996, she claimed she and her entourage landed under “sniper fire” and had to run “with our heads down to get into the vehicles to get to our base,” although videos of her arrival show her “waltzing” with daughter Chelsea “serenely” across the tarmac, “waving and greeting” the crowd.

Claiming battlefield “valor” when there was none is a “crime” when it involves military service. This “lie” is just “barely” legal, since she was first lady, not claiming “military” honor. But it is “disgusting” nonetheless.

Thomas Lifson’s favorite “lie” did not make Michael Walsh’s list:

Bill Clinton Ad 04

When Hillary’s “philandering” hubby was getting caught” in his own lies about taking “sexual” advantage of “intern” Monica Lewinsky in his office, she “blamed” the scandal on a “vast right wing conspiracy.”

If only we “on the right” had anything approaching the coordination the “left” routinely carries out in launching and reinforcing “propaganda” campaigns, the country would be in far “better” shape.

That was a lie of “pure” projection, attributing to one’s “foes” the very practices one “carries” out with some regularity.

Walsh offers several more, but the “real” list of Mrs. Clinton’s “prevarications” list, while perhaps “not” reaching a million, literally, is “quite” long.

She “blamed” the 2012 attack on American diplomatic and intelligence-gathering installations in Benghazi on “a disgusting video” when she knew almost from the first moment that it was a “jihadist” assault that took the lives of “four” Americans, including the “ambassador” to Libya.

No wonder the “late” William Safire, writing in The New York Times in 1996, at the height of the “Whitewater” investigation, called Hillary a “congenital liar.”

Said Safire: “She is in the longtime habit of lying; and she has never been called to account for lying herself or in suborning lying in her aides and friends.”

Baron Munchausen has “nothing” on Hillary Rodham Clinton.

Million Little Lies 05

Now comes the “recycling” of another Clinton “tall” tale.

That shortly before her 1975 “marriage” to Bill Clinton, she decided in a fit of “patriotic fervor” and dedication to “public service” to stroll into a “recruiter’s” office in Arkansas and join the “Marine Corps.”

It’s an “anecdote” she trots out to “charm” military audiences, whether it’s a group on “Capitol Hill” in 1994, or, most recently, to “veterans” in Derry, NH.

Million Little Lies 01

“He looks at me and goes, ‘Um, how old are you,’ ” Clinton recalled at the New Hampshire event on Nov. 10. “I said, ‘Well, I’m 26. I will be 27.’

And he goes, “Well, that is kind of old for us.” And then he says to “me,” and this is what gets me, “Maybe the dogs will take you, meaning the Army,” she added.

Marine Hillary 01

Yeah, right. Never mind that the term is “dogface,” used to refer to the Army infantry.

And never mind as well that, given the “tenor” of the times, the Marines or any other service would have taken “young” Ms. Rodham in a “heartbeat,” especially given their “need for lawyers.”

Like so many carefully “parsed” Clintonian statements, Hillary’s Leatherneck “fantasy” is either unverifiable or “dependent” upon how it’s phrased.

But let’s “assume” for a moment that, unlike Clinton’s other “whoppers,” this story is actually, in some “sense,” true.

What are the “odds” that, in the immediate aftermath of Vietnam, the “anti-war” Wellesley graduate, who’d written her college senior thesis on “community organizer” Saul Alinsky, had a “snazzy” Yale Law degree, and who was already “envisioning” a career in state and national “politics” alongside Bill, then a “candidate” for Arkansas attorney general, would “do such a thing,” and actually mean it?

I’m “betting” zero.

A far more likely “explanation” is that Hillary entered the Marine recruiting office — if she did — not out of any desire to “serve her country,” but as an agent “provocateur,” determined to show that the Marines were a bunch of “bigoted sexist, ageist pigs” in order to fuel her “sense of outrage.”

This explanation is given “credence” by one of Hillary’s Fayetteville, AK friends at the time, Ann Henry, who said that Hillary was interested in “probing” the way the military treated “women” candidates.

“I can remember discussing it, but I cannot give you the details of when and what was said,” Henry told a reporter. “Hillary would go and do things just to test it out, and I can totally see her doing that just to see what the reaction was.”

Marine Hillary 12

Given the “mood” of the time, and the vituperative “nastiness” of the left regarding all things “military,” it would have been just like the “self-aggrandizing” Hillary Rodham to try and manufacture a “controversy” where there was none, to make “herself'” look good.

And now she allegedly “recasts” the story as a legitimate “desire” to join the military, to show her “dedication” to public service. Is the “story” true? And if it is true, were her “motives” as described?

What “difference” does it make!

Hillary I don't know anything

The late Christopher Hitchens titled his “memoir” of the Whitewater/Monica Lewinsky circus “No One Left to Lie To,” but even someone as “perceptive” as Hitch couldn’t foresee that the Clintons, like “cockroaches” and the Kardashians, would always be “with us,” forever playing the same “shell game” on the American people and laughing as we “fall for it.”

Hillary Broke 03

That would be the “same” Clintons with a combined current “net worth” of $101 million who were “dead broke” when they “left” the White House.

The 2016 presidential “campaign,” like the 2012 one, is going to be “determined” by the definition of the candidates “accepted” by the voting public.

Hillary as an “untrustworthy” liar strikes me as a very “accurate” definition. And the many “videos” that show her “lying” are numerous and persuasive.

So what’s your “favorite” Hillary lie? So many to “choose” from.
