A Clinton Scorned - "What Difference Does It Make"

Tyler Durden's picture


Hell hath no fury... After an extensive 24,500 word hearing, it would appear we are not really any closer to knowing who knew what when and why we weren't told. However, while the invisible hand of the word-cloud fairy found it useful to highlight the words 'People', 'Think', and 'Know', perhaps it was Hilary's infuriated outburst (clip below) when pressed on what happened that sums it all up in her eyes: "What Difference Does It Make?" It seems that once again 'they' know what is best for us to know and not know... Furthermore, her discussion of the US growing presence in Africa fits tightly with our previous comments on the next investing horizon.



The hearing word-cloud:


But perhaps the only relevant statement in the entire theatrical presentation was the following:

...we don't have assets of any significance right now on the African continent. We're only building that up.


And so what do we need in Africa?


What countries will welcome us there, give us, both our military and civilian teams, a good, safe base out of which to operate?


So we're focusing just on Africa, and particularly North Africa right now

Why is Africa suddenly so important to the US State Department? Perhaps it has something to do with this...

Hillary's recent stay in the hospital was a deliberate, and successful, attempt to delay this hearing. She was going through an unusually difficult molting and didn't want to appear on camera while the scales were still visible.

I think it was more than that.  The delay could have been time to destroy evidence but it may have been a warning.

She had the nomination in 2008 sewn up.  She got thugged by Obama's goons and had it stolen from her.  The Clintons hate Obama but play nice.  The word was the goons threatened their kid.  See Arron Swartz, Breitbart, et al.

Lame Cherry and others think O may have done something to her health to make sure she did not screw up and maybe tell the truth or some version of the truth.

Benghazi, Algeria, Fast & Furious is all gun running, drug dealing and a lot of worse.

I think this hearing was all delayed so that the Clinton machine could get everything just right. I would not be surprised that their PR firm had a mock set built to be an exact replica of the room she just "testified" in.

I would no be surprised that their team of lawyers conducted months of legal research so that Cankles would be sure not to step in it while "testifying" all under the guise that she had a health problem prohibiting her from "testifying"

I would not be surprised to hear that Clinton's hired an acting coach to teach Cankles how to cry.

And most important I am not surprised that soft ball questions were given to Cankles.
So is Freddie paranoid? I don't know. Maybe you think me paranoid that's fine too. Just know this Cankles Clinton is a liar. The people she associates with are liars. The people in Washington, D.C. are liars. I would not put anything past any of them. Remember these are the people that are launching drones over your airspace to watch you, so who is paranoid.

" Just one hour after the seven-hour-long terrorist attacks upon the U.S. consulate in Benghazi began, our commander-in-chief, vice president, secretary of defense and their national security team gathered together in the Oval Office listening to phone calls from American defenders desperately under siege and watching real-time video of developments from a drone circling over the site. Yet they sent no military aid that might have intervened in time to save lives. Why? "

Hillary the deadbeat that left her failed presidential campaign with $25Million in debt that she personally guaranteed miraculously came up with the funds to settle the bill today ... AMAZING Coincidence... I wonder who the donors were?

If I was the suspicious type I'd be thinking that she held this little trifle about poor Mr. Ben Gazzy over O's head until her coffers were full enough... She's just about the only one in O's galaxy of friends and acquaintences who cannot "disappear" like Ron Brown did..

If I was the suspicious type that is..

The difference it makes, Hillary you arrogant bitch, is that for once we may want to understand WHY people want to kill Americans and plan to continue doing so instead of just focusing on the cycle of revenge.

It wasn't just arrogance.  It was also because she didn't have an answer.  Her subsequent statement immediately invoked a focus the victims.  Classic misdirection.

The most apalling thing about Africa is that many kids simply don't have access to government schools with official curriculums. The very first thing America needs to do is work with African governments to get these children educated. Africa needs proper forward-thinking curriculums, covering a wide range of issues from how to take care of the environment to social studies and even politics and government. But for goodness' sake, let's get these kids educated

Wouldn't it be nice if they actually spent the money edu-macating the African-Americans living in America's inner cities?

You have kids graduating from school in this country with 3rd grade reading comprehension levels.

Why would Africans want us to do to them what we already do to our own kids?

I always like reading MDB'S posts,...usually give me a good laugh. He does a great job in my opinion.  He is obviously well informed, smart and a decent writer.  But,...sometimes people, from time to time, forget that he is just here to provide us a few laughs,..me as well. Sometimes,..I find myself arguing with him, ..as I read his comments.  Sounds pretty stupid, huh?    Well, what Ive learned to do, is,... if I find myself taking him to seriously,....I will re-read his post,...and substitute each thought with just the opposite,....for instance,....I will re-read todays post for you....and substitue..

That is odd.  I noticed that almost all of China's investments in Africa are south of the Clinton-Netanyahu Line, where drone strikes on brown people cease, and aid drops (or investments?) for black people begin. 

Maybe, unlike America, the Chinese have more money than drones?

Maybe they think the northern hemisphere is FF't and read some Sun Tzu?

Sun Tzu is only the most seriously overrated 'strategist' of all time. Rarely-discussed proof of this can be found in China's 1000+ year history of laughable, pathetic military ineptittude since he wrote his 'masterpiece'. (Never mind how the Japs went through them like a samurai sword through soft butter, just remember that tiny freakin' VIETNAM kicked their ases in a shooting war in 1979.) But then with gems like "know your enemy" and "a stitch in time saves nine" and "Paul is dead", why *wouldn't* people line up to hail his genius? Sheeit. He couldn't carry Machiavelli's jock.

Oh, and for those of you itching to type in, Pavlov-style, "Hey Vietnam kicked OUR assss, TOO!" or "Yalu river!!", just the way Teacher instructed you to....you might wanna ask yourself, "Why do I feel the urge to write that?"

Wed, 01/23/2013 - 18:10 | 3180780 Rompoculos

Sun Tzu was a genius, regardless of whether or not future leaders followed his teachings. He was a victorious general in war. Machiavelli was a political realist with great advice. But he himself could not achieve power. Writing "know your enemy" and understanding what that means are very different things. A difference lost on you.
