One of these rare opportunities for insight has been recently presented to us in the disastrous rollout of the Hillarious Clinton campaign for the Presidency of the United States. Whatever you may think of Hillary Clinton, or of her qualifications or lack thereof to be our next Commander-in Chief, you must admit that her antics are evocative not only of hilarity but of pity.
On the eve of her announcement of her candidacy for President, she was blindsided by the revelation that she had, in violation of rules and in all probability the law, maintained a private email server to keep her correspondence out of sight of not only the public but the government during the five years she was US Secretary of State. Furthermore, it was revealed she had not, in clear violation of the law, signed a form OS-112 federal exit form or a DI-105 inventory of returned government property (including emails and other correspondence) when she left the State Department.
In a feeble attempt at damage control, Hillary held a hastily prepared news conference at which she raised more questions than she answered by admitting that she had illegally deleted official emails because she, as sole arbiter, had decided they were "private."
Then it was revealed that during Hillary's tenure as Secretary of State, with broad powers to influence international affairs, the Clinton Foundation accepted donations of tens of millions of dollars from foreign governments, some if not most of which represented clear conflicts of interest – and many of which provide circumstantial evidence of quid pro quo arrangements by the Clintons in violation of the laws and with disregard for the security of the United States of America.
The latest of these revelations is the New York Times' shocker that Hillary and Bill Clinton were instrumental in giving Russia rights to 20% of US Uranium deposits in return for contributions to the Clinton foundation and a half-million dollar speaking gig for Bill in Moscow. Even as we speak, yellow cake uranium is being shipped by Russia from Wyoming to Canada for processing and shipment to Russia – courtesy of the Clinton's greed.
When New York Times reporter Jo Becker asked Bill Clinton to confirm that, prior to Canadian millionaire Frank Giustra contributing over 30 million dollars to the Clinton Foundation, Bill Clinton had accompanied Mr. Giustra to Kazakhstan to facilitate Giustra's acquisition of Kazakh Uranium mines, the Clintons denied that such a meeting had ever taken place.
But Ms Becker had done her homework, and when she told the Clintons that she had already confirmed the meeting with the head of the Kazakh state owned Uranium mining company, and that furthermore she had a picture of him together with Bill Clinton at the meeting, the Clintons reluctantly admitted that, umm - yes, the meeting had in fact taken place.
And now Trey Gowdy has called Hillary to testify before his Benghazi Committee and John Beohner is threatening to subpoena her email server.
And the Clinton's problems are only beginning. Before they're done, they are going to wish they'd listened to George Soros when he told them, "Get out of the way, Hillary. I want Elizabeth Warren on the Democrat ticket for President."
But if Hillarious Clinton has done nothing else for America, in 2015 at least she has kept us amused – and she has made us all thankful for our own problems.
