All these accusations against Hillary Clinton and the Democrats for election rigging has fallen on deaf ears in the media and the party faithful. “Accept the results!” they cry. “Peaceful transition!” they complain.
Of couse, that’s as long as you don’t remember Al Gore, who contested an election for months, or John Kerry, who still things his race against George W. Bush was stolen in Ohio in 2004. Funny how Hillary has even agreed with that.
But those anecdotal cries of hypocrisy don’t seem to go far in the media. This new bombshell tape may go a lot further. In Hillary’s own words, she advocates for the very thing she vehemently denies in this election.
From The Observer:
The tape is 45 minutes and contains much that is no longer relevant, such as analysis of the re-election battle that Sen. Joe Lieberman was then facing in Connecticut. But a seemingly throwaway remark about elections in areas controlled by the Palestinian Authority has taken on new relevance amid persistent accusations in the presidential campaign by Clinton’s Republican opponent Donald Trump that the current election is “rigged.”
Speaking to the Jewish Press about the January 25, 2006, election for the second Palestinian Legislative Council (the legislature of the Palestinian National Authority), Clinton weighed in about the result, which was a resounding victory for Hamas (74 seats) over the U.S.-preferred Fatah (45 seats).
“I do not think we should have pushed for an election in the Palestinian territories. I think that was a big mistake,” said Sen. Clinton. “And if we were going to push for an election, then we should have made sure that we did something to determine who was going to win.”
There’s no beating around the bush here, is there? Hillary doesn’t seem interested in taking part of an election that she can’t determine the outcome. When it comes to crooked politicians, past performance really can predict future actions. It’s plain as day that Hillary’s not interested in playing by anyone’s rules—to get anything she wants.
