The Horse Sense Blog compares the nonsense in today's news with good ol' fashioned horse sense


“…I shall speak forth my sentiments freely and without reserve.… It is only in this way that we can hope to arrive at truth, and fulfill the great responsibility which we hold to God and our country. Should I keep back my opinions at such a time, through fear of giving offense, I should consider myself as guilty of treason towards my country, and of an act of disloyalty toward the Majesty of Heaven, which I revere above all earthly kings.” - Patrick Henry, March 23, 1775

Why Hillary Clinton Is The Most Unfit Candidate In American History

Here's the Nonsense:  All the negative things being said about Hillary Clinton are just lies from people who don't agree with her on some issues.  As President Obama made clear, she's the most qualified candidate who has ever run for the presidency.

Here's the Horse Sense:  Most American voters don't know much about Hillary Clinton's past.  They don't even know what she did in recent years as Secretary of State or NY Senator.  Looking at her record makes it abundantly clear she's not only unqualified to be president, she's unfit for the office.

If you've heard a lot of reasons why Hillary shouldn't be president, you may be like many of us who are beginning to forget her record.  But we need to be careful not to forget because that record should tell us what we need to know about why she is or isn't fit for the office.  Fortunately there are some people who are trying to help us to remember.  John Perazzao at FrontPageMag.com has just released an article that, while long, is a must-read for all voters prior to election day.  I'm going to give you an overview here, but it's worth the time to read his entire article. (Click here to read his article in it entirety.)

Perazzo writes:  "Never in American history has anyone as unfit and undeserving as Hillary Clinton run for U.S. President. While she stands on the threshold of being elected to the White House, she quite literally belongs in a prison cell. This article lays out the case against her, chapter and verse."  And then he goes on with a list that would be a great outline for a book about how someone so evil has risen to the level of power she has and is now on the precipice of becoming our next president.

Perazzo starts by reminding us of Hillary's illegal use of a private email server while she was Secretary of State.  He writes:  "Throughout her entire four-year tenure as secretary of state, Mrs. Clinton never acquired or used a government email account. Instead, she transmitted — in violation of government regulations — all of her official correspondences via a private email address that traced back to a secret, private, unsecured server that was housed at her New York residence. And immediately after those emails were subpoenaed by Congress, Clinton instructed a team of her advisers to unilaterally delete, with no oversight, almost 32,000 of the roughly 60,000 emails in question."  The he points out that she lied and said that she did it because using one mobile device was more convenient, but in reality we learn that she had at least 13 mobile devices.  And she made sure that not only were more than half the emails deleted, but all of her mobile devices were also unavailable for the FBI to examine during their investigation.  


Then the article reminds us that at least 2079 emails contained classified information, which is a felony under Section 793 of the Espionage Act, each being punishable by a sentence of up to 10 years in prison.  


It then goes on and reports on the scandals at the Clinton Foundation, which violated laws that prohibit politicians from accepting money from foreign sources.  The Clintons went from not being able to buy a house without someone to co-sign the mortgage when they left the White House to a net worth that today is estimated between $200-$300 million.  Much of that worth is due to their foundation where approximately 1/3 of all donations were from foreign sources donating over $1 million and more than 1/2 of those donated over $5 million.  And that barely scratches the surface of the information reported by Perazzo in his article.  He includes many "coincidental" benefits donors received while Hillary was Secretary of State, too.

It even points out that, for example, in 2013 only 6% of the Clinton Foundation's revenues went to direct charitable aid. (Sounds a lot like enough to be able to say they were doing charitable work without actually investing in helping people.)
Clinton's support for the Iran Nuclear Deal that President Obama touts so loudly is also covered in the article.  The article points out that Hillary's campaign says Hillary will enforce the deal, but that's not so comforting when it shows the key points of the deal include:
  • Iran was permitted to keep more than 5,000 centrifuges.
  • Iran received $150 billion in sanctions relief.
  • Russia and China were permitted to supply Iran with weapons.
  • Iran was given the discretion to block international inspectors from its military installations, and was promised that it would receive 14 days’ notice for any request to visit a given site.
  • Only inspectors from countries that had diplomatic relations with Iran would be given access to Iranian nuclear sites; thus there would be no American inspectors.
  • An embargo on the sale of weapons to Iran would be officially lifted in 5 years.
  • Iran's intercontinental ballistic missile program would remain intact.
  • The U.S. pledged that it would provide technical assistance to help Iran develop its nuclear program and protect its nuclear facilities, supposedly for peaceful domestic purposes.
  • Sanctions would be lifted on critical parts of Iran’s military.
  • Iran was not required to release American prisoners whom it was holding on trumped-up charges.
We can't forget, as Perazzo points out, that Hillary helped Russia get control of 20% of all U. S. uranium.  While she was Secretary of State, Hillary joined Obama's Attorney General and the Secretaries of Defense, Commerce, Treasury, Homeland Security, and Energy to approve Russia's acquisition of 51% control of Uranium One, a company that controls 20% of all uranium production capacity in the U. S. 

And "coincidentally" in June 2010, the month in which the Russian acquisition of Uranium One was approved, Bill Clinton was invited to speak in Moscow for a fee of $500,000. Vladimir Putin personally thanked Mr. Clinton for speaking. Mr. Clinton's speaking fee was paid by Renaissance Capital, a Russian investment bank with ties to the Kremlin.
I'm just scratching the surface but let me quickly outline other things it covers.  Those include:

  • The Benghazi Debacle, and Clinton's Role in Arming Jihadists in Libya and Syria
  • The Radical Islamist Affiliations of Clinton's Closest Aide
  • The Deadly Consequences of Clinton's Absurd Fictions About Islam & Terrorism
  • Clinton's Role in the Rise of ISIS and the Stratospheric Growth of Worldwide Terrorism
  • Clinton's Role in Squandering America's Victory in the Iraq War
  • Clinton's Horrible Judgment Regarding Another Terrorist Enemy
  • Clinton's work to ensure ratification of the New Start Treaty with Russia.  Phyllis Schlafly wrote about it saying: 

  • Clinton's Reprehensible Treatment of Israel
  • Clinton Turns Libya into a Terrorist Hell Hole
  • Clinton's Plan to Import 65,000 Syrian Refugees into the U.S. As Quickly As Possible. Her campaign website says: “We have to stem the flow of jihadists from Europe and America to and from Iraq, Syria, and Afghanistan.” While this sounds like a grand idea, it begs a very obvious question: Why has Hillary Clinton explicitly called for bringing at least 65,000 refugees from Syria into the United States as quickly as possible, even though:
  1. ISIS has vowed to deploy terrorist operatives to infiltrate the flow of Syrian refugees heading to Western nations?
  2. more than 1,500 terror-linked refugees, asylees and migrants entered the U.S. in 2014 alone?
  3. more than 30,000 illegal immigrants from “countries of terrorist concern” entered the United States through America's Southwestern border with Mexico in 2015?
  4. Michael Steinbach, deputy assistant director of the FBI’s counter-terrorism unit, has made it clear that it is virtually impossible to screen out terrorists who could be posing as refugees and coming to America?
  5. FBI Director James Comey has said that the federal government does not have the ability to conduct reliable background checks on the Syrian refugees, and has warned that “there will be a terrorist diaspora [from Syria and elsewhere in the Middle East] sometime in the next two to five years like we’ve never seen before”?
  6. Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson has admitted that the U.S. will not “know a whole lot” about the refugees it accepts?
  7. CIA director John Brennan has said that ISIS “is probably exploring a variety of means for infiltrating operatives into the West, including in refugee flows ...”?

  • Clinton Explicitly Favors Amnesty, Sanctuary Cities, and Open Borders
  • Clinton Opposes Gun Rights
  • Clinton's Plans to Expand Obamacare into a Government-Run, Single-Payer System
  • in spite of these facts about Obamacare:
  1. A 2014 study by the Brookings Institution found that “premiums in the individual health insurance market increased by 24.4 percent beyond what they would have had they simply followed … [existing] trends.”
  2. The S&P Global Institute found that between 2013-15, the average market medical costs per individual increased by 69%.
  3. Premiums for ACA-compliant Qualified Health Plans that were sold to individuals on the Obamacare exchanges, were $2,300 more expensive than premiums for non-Qualified Health Plans, i.e., plans that were in existence before 2014 and did not comply with the mandates of the ACA.
  4. In 2015, premiums for the lowest-cost plans across all tiers — bronze, silver, gold and platinum — increased by a median of 10-13%.
  5. By September 2016, fully 16 of Obamacare's 23 state exchanges had gone bankrupt, with another one — the Tennessee exchange — “very near collapse.”
  6. It is expected that by the end of 2016, UnitedHealth Group will have exited 31 of the 34 Obamacare exchanges in which it has participated, while Aetna will have left 11 of its 15 state exchanges.
  7. Obamacare's insurance policy deductibles are skyrocketing in almost every state. As National Review reports: “Average deductibles for silver plans — which accounted for nearly 70 percent of the exchanges’ 9.3 million enrollees [in 2015] — now average $2,994. The second most popular Bronze plans have average deductibles of $5,629.... Paying $3,000 or $5,600 before their insurance kicks in simply isn’t an option for most families ...”

  • “Criminal Justice Reform”: Going Soft on Crime, and Filling America's Graveyards
  • Fighting Voter ID Laws As “Racist” Schemes to Disenfranchise Minorities, even though voter fraud is rampant throughout America as noted in these facts:
  1. A 2012 report by the Pew Center on the States found that 24 million voter registrations — one-eighth of all registrations nationwide — were either invalid or inaccurate, including more than 1.8 million dead people who were still registered.
  2. A 2014 study found that two years earlier, some 155,692 registered voters in North Carolina alone had first and last names, birth dates, and final-four Social Security Number digits that matched those of voters who were registered in other states.
  3. The same study also found that 35,570 people who had actually voted in North Carolina, had first names, last names, and birth dates that matched those of voters who had cast ballots in other states.
  4. In 2008, Democrat Al Franken won a highly controversial U.S. Senate race in Minnesota by just 312 votes. It was later discovered that 1,099 felons — all legally ineligible to vote — had cast ballots in the election, almost exclusively for Franken.
  5. A 2006 study found that 77,000 dead people were listed on New York's statewide database of registered voters, and that as many as 2,600 of them had somehow managed to cast ballots from the grave.
  6. In Milwaukee in 2004, approximately 5,300 more ballots were cast, than voters who were recorded as having shown up at the polls.
  7. In 2008, election officials nationwide had to discard at least 400,000 bogus voter registrations submitted by ACORN, the now-defunct criminal operation masquerading as a “community organization.” (Speaking at ACORN’s 2006 national convention, Mrs. Clinton said: “I thank you for being part of that great movement, that progressive tradition that has rolled across our country.”)
  8. In 2011, a Colorado study found that of the nearly 12,000 non-citizens who were illegally registered to vote in that state, about 5,000 had taken part in the 2010 general election.
  9. In ten Colorado counties in 2012, voter registrations outnumbered the total voting-age population by between 4% and 40%.
(The foregoing examples represent only the tip of a huge election-fraud iceberg.) 
  • Clinton's Affiliation with Al Sharpton & Black Lives Matter
  • Clinton’s View of the Supreme Court and Its Purpose as shown in these litmus tests she says she'd put forth for SCOTUS appointees:

  1. “I would want to see the Supreme Court reverse Citizens United and get dark unaccountable money out of our politics.” (Citizens United was a 2010 Supreme Court ruling that left intact the federal law prohibiting corporations and unions from making campaign contributions to politicians, but nullified a provision barring such entities from paying for political ads made independently of candidate campaigns—on grounds that the First Amendment prohibits Congress from censoring any entity's right to engage in, or to fund, political speech.)
  2. “I would like the Supreme Court to understand that voting rights are a big problem in many parts of the country. That we don't do always do everything we can to make it possible for people of color and older people and young people to be able to exercise their franchise.” (In other words, Mrs. Clinton would appoint Justices who oppose Voter ID laws, favor extended early-voting periods, support voting rights for convicted felons, and endorse universal voter registration — all measures that would make it significantly easier to commit voter fraud.)
  3. “I want a Supreme Court that will stick with Roe v. Wade and a woman’s right to choose.”
  4. “I want a Supreme Court that will stick with marriage equality” (i.e., same-sex marriage).

  • Clinton Supports Partial-Birth Abortion
  • Clinton's Personal Persecution of a Young Rape Victim
Perazzo concludes his article saying:

This, then, is Hillary Clinton: a woman who is wholly, unequivocally unfit to serve as anything more than an inmate in a federal penitentiary. She has demonstrated, time and again:
  • that she cannot, under any circumstances, be trusted with national security or state secrets;
  • that she treats the paper on which the Espionage Act is written, with no more reverence than she would give to a strip of toilet paper;
  • that she treats with similar disregard the paper on which the U.S. Constitution is written;
  • that her judgment in matters of international conflict, diplomacy, and terrorism is an abomination;
  • that she routinely uses her “charitable foundation” as a money-laundering operation designed to enrich herself under the guise of helping the needy;
  • that she will gladly sell out her country, and everyone in it, in exchange for material riches and political dominion;
  • the she is intent upon using the most irresponsible refugee and immigration policies imaginable to import countless millions of people from hostile, impoverished nations across the globe for one core purpose: to permanently transform the American population into one that will vote reliably Democrat from now until the end of time;
  • that she fully intends to purge the Second Amendment from the Bill of Rights;
  • that she unequivocally plans to expand the disastrous, failing Obamacare debacle into an even more monstrous, government-run, single-payer healthcare system;
  • that she favors soft-on-crime policies that have repeatedly been shown to cause violent crime rates to skyrocket;
  • that she is perfectly willing to institutionalize massive, ubiquitous voter fraud because she believes that it will ensure additional power for her political party;
  • that she views white Americans as a whole, as inherently, “implicitly,” and “irredeemably” racist, and therefore in constant need of an all-powerful government to restrain their bigoted impulses;
  • that despite her professed aversion to racism in general, she is quite happy to ally herself with “politically correct” racists like Al Sharpton and the Black Lives Matter movement; and
  • that she opposes the imposition of any restrictions whatsoever on abortion rights, or on the government's power to force taxpayers to fund abortions.
In the final analysis, Hillary Clinton is a woman with a mindset that is totalitarian in every respect. To make matters worse, she is a lying, deceiving, manipulative, self-absorbed criminal without a shred of personal virtue. Truly it can be said that never before in American history has anyone so unfit and so undeserving, run for president. Never.

John Perazzo is right.  Every voter should read his article in its entirety and pass it on to others.  (Click here to read the entire article.)  Hillary is the most unfit candidate America has every had running for the presidency.  If we don't stop her, America will never be the same.
