Hillary To The Rescue: Clinton To Kick Off Series Of Speeches To Bolster Trust In Government

1 Shares

Back in June, President Barack Obama made his own bully attempt to shore up Americans’ growing skepticism of the Federal government by telling a San Jose audience “we’re going to have some problems here” if people won’t trust him, Congress and the court system to uphold the Constitution. His heavy-handed wordplay went over like a lead dirigible.

Now Hillary Clinton is preparing to put her own spin on the President’s “trust us” message.

In a move expected to revive her public profile as the 2016 Presidential campaign season gets underway, Clinton will launch a speech blitz over the “next few months,” with the first – an address on the “balance and transparency necessary in our national security policies” – set to take place next month in Philadelphia.

Clinton unveiled her speech tour at a Monday address before the American Bar Association in San Francisco. She used the bulk of her 45 minutes behind the mic to lambast the Supreme Court’s decision to strike down portions of the Voting Rights Act that had unequally leashed some States’ ability to draw their own voting districts without Federal babysitting.

Cribbing a page from President Obama’s playbook of class warfare, Clinton said race-based voter discrimination is very much alive and well in 2013.

“In the weeks since the ruling we have seen an unseemly rush by previously covered jurisdictions that will make it harder for our fellow Americans to vote,” she said. “Unless we act now, citizens will be disenfranchised and victimized by the law instead of served by it….[A]nyone who says that racial discrimination is not a problem in American elections must not be paying attention.”

Breitbart wryly notes that Clinton isn’t exactly a confidence-inspiring torch bearer for Americans demanding their voyeuristic government to put down the binoculars:

According to Philip Rucker, White House correspondent for The Washington Post, Hillary planned to emphasize restoring faith in government – an ironic theme, considering that she was a member of the current administration presiding over the rapid decline in faith in government.

No word on whether this round of addresses will remunerate Hillary at her customary rate of $200,000 a pop.

Reconciling the concept of individual sovereignty with conscientious participation in the modern American political process is a continuing preoccupation for staff writer Ben Bullard. A former community newspaper writer, Bullard has closely observed the manner in which well-meaning small-town politicians and policy makers often accept, unthinkingly, their increasingly marginal role in shaping the quality of their own lives, as well as those of the people whom they serve. He argues that American public policy is plagued by inscrutable and corrupt motives on a national scale, a fundamental problem which individuals, families and communities must strive to solve. This, he argues, can be achieved only as Americans rediscover the principal role each citizen plays in enriching the welfare of our Republic.

    Race based discrimination like Black Panthers standing armed guard outside polling places?

    • mark

      That was at one precinct only ( out of nearly 300,000 voting precincts in the U.S.) Neither of the only 2 panthers had firearms. One of the 2 had a billy club and he was forced to leave by the police. The other completely unarmed panther, no billy club, stick, or anything, stayed as he was a registered poll watcher. Quit drinking the FOX Kool-Aid. This incident at one small precinct out of 300,000 had zero effect on the election unlike the massive Republican efforts to strip black, poor people, and students of their voting rights that is still on-going. Big, fat, ugly rednecks stand in front of voter polls in the South all the time eye-balling black voters trying to intimidate them with their shot gun rack pick-up trucks parked right across the street. They are also often official poll watchers, gee I wonder why? And whites have zero complaints against this form of psychological intimidation.

        Speaking of kool-aid your the one drunk on it. You can’t see the truth glaring at you with both eyes open. You have not one ounce of love for this country. You believe anything the government controlled media has to say. Wake up.

      Here’s a link to a video of the panther who had the billie club shouting about killing every last one of them white people.

  • Harold Olsen

    Clinton trying to bolster trust in government? That’s almost funny. That’s like the KKK trying to bolster harmony between the races or Hitler urging tolerance in the treatment of Jews.

  • Jurgy

    now we know what that private dinner meeting was all about … “Hill, you go you there and make these trust your government speeches, it’ll foster your run in 2016 and maybe a few folks will trust me before my term ends ” …

  • horace nerf

    Golly Gee Whiz, now that Hbillery says it OK were all fine. The Dems should not put this lying, murderous gangster as their front man

  • Robert Zraick

    There is race based discrimination in the voting process. White votes are not counted.

Oh Ya we can trust YOU….The face that launched a thousand ships, truth personified….??? Trusting Hillary is like trusting Whitey Bolger from the Mob that just got life in prison… When it comes to Gooberment, send the very best, send Hitlery Clintong.

    • Alan

      More like a face that sunk a thousand ships.

  • villageidiot

    Well now, Obama saved us all, so there is no point in Hillary coming to the rescue. What is there for her to rescue? God help us all!

    • liz

      After what she said regarding Benghazi and the deaths of those men and our Ambassador? I don’t think so !!!!!!!

  • Ness

    She lied about Benhgazi, and now we are suppose to trust our government. She and her cohorts run our government. Hillary we weren’t born yesterday!

    • chris

      Another comment I like, i’m actually starting to believe were starting to get wise to this corrupt government.

      • Bronco

        All but a majority of the Democrats who don’t want to know the truth may be “starting to believe. . .”.
        Oh, what I thought was super suspicious when he refused to wear the AMERICAN flag pin and Didn’t salute the flag when others in the photo did. (Wonder who tipped him off that that is what USA presidents do: salute our flag. . . you know presidents are chief of the armed forces–he must have missed that fact in law school.) Then again when he sat in the Rev. Wright’s church 20 years and didn’t notice that he preached against America.. . . And that was before the 2008 election. Where were the Democrats when that was all over TV. . . didn’t believe it?

  • Cliff Cabbage

    ” Trust in government ” – ” What difference does it make? “

  • b glad

    Hillary Clinton is the least qualified person there is to be touting “trust”. She has been intimately involved with two of the least accountable, least transparent, and most dishonest, and entirely criminal administrations this Nation has ever known. “Trust Hillary”? NOT A CHANCE!!!

    • chris

      You are so right, if we could take a poll of the majority of americans about 90 % would agree with you

  • wildpaul

    Everybody better get their waist high waders on, has it is going to get deep around here with Hillary talking. Hillary and Obummer have one thing in common, and that is lying!

    • Bronco

      You forgot the third person who “didn’t have sex with that woman.”

  • TheTruthHurtsAsWell

    Why not restore faith in capitalism? Humans negotiate both business & government (at times mutually exclusive), yet one is voluntary & the other coercive…

  • Chris

    Speeches? Blab, blab, blab…………MORE hot air. “I” say………..put your money where your MOUTH is………we don’t want to hear words………..we want to SEE PROOF!!!!

  • An Old Seabee

    I do trust our gob’ment…..to screw us continually and without the ky jelly! To trust anything that hillery might say is shear idiocy! Whatever she says believe the opposite.

  • jdn

    You people are so negative , just wait until KG gets here and sets you straight . We all know deep down inside how trust worthy both Hillary and our government are .

  • rendarsmith

    If HILLARY says we can trust the government, then it must be so! But then again Hillary stays with her cheating husband….

  • mark

    She’s a shoe-in to win in 2016 with the shrinking Republican base of angry older white men – and nobody else – voting for the GOP. The Repubs might even put up an extremist against her like Ted Cruz or Rand Paul. Then it will be a 61-39% landslide like LBJ-Goldwater in 1964. But hey the Tea Party will be happy!

    • dogggonebad

      democrips and rebloodlicans are two sides of the same fiat coin. we might as well be voting for the nazis or the communists.

    • Sic Semper Tyrannis

      She’ll be opposed by JEB Bush, the drug trafficker and former Governor of Florida placed in that position for two purposes: to allow drug trafficking by the Bush and Clinton CIA cartel through Miami and to position himself for the Presidency. You’re right. She’s a slam-dunk for the Presidency unfortunately against another Establishment pile of dung like herself. With the US Propaganda Ministry already frothing at the mouth and groveling at her feet and even already making a unilateral, worshipful documentary “misinfomercial” to be aired soon, it’s clear what the Establishment has already planned for 2016 if Obama doesn’t pull his Martial Law Genie out of the bottle.

      • Bud Wood

        I may consider leaving the USA for some nice place like North Korea.

    • me

      I think if the two wacko birds keep going they might have a good chance of winning the presidential ticket. They both have stood up for the constitutional rights of the people. Gunowners will be out in full force next time since Owebunhole launched his rights robbing agenda and Hellery has the same ideals. The wacko birds would have my vote.

  • Motov

    Hitlery is just doing what her puppet masters told her to do.
    Just like Obozo and everyone else.

    • me

      Seems anymore there is puppetmasters in every election. It wouldn’ surprise me if it went clear down to local elections.

      • Motov

        You may even be surprised if a third candidate wins, since both parties totally suck!

    The only Clinton I would believe is Bill, after all it wasn’t sex, just Oral….LMAO!!!!!!!

  • Sic Semper Tyrannis

    Well, if one serial murderer can’t convince the Amerikan People to trust the dictatorship, perhaps we should try another serial murderer. Makes perfect sense to me! And if she can’t convince them, then let’s get more serial murderers like Billy and the Bush Gang back in the “slimelight” of the US Propaganda Ministry. It’s truly “HILARIOUS” watching Hitler HILLARY, Barry the Bathhouse Fairy, and all of these other satanic sociopaths try to do damage control after Snowden pulled their pants down and showed the world just how EVIL they really all are. NOW, I AM WAITING FOR SNOWDEN TO EXPOSE THE INCONTROVERTIBLE TRUTH OF THE GOVERNMENT’S INVOLVEMENT IN 9/11TO THE AMERIKAN PEOPLE. That will be a Kodak Moment to get out the popcorn and Coke as the House of Cards in the District of Criminals and the US Propaganda Ministry comes tumbling down.

  • Sic Semper Tyrannis

    Let’s see: Birthergate, 9/11, BAILOUTS, the missing 16 TRILLION DOLLARS FROM THE FED THAT IS STILL UNPROSECUTED TO THIS DAY IN SPITE OF EVIDENCE GIVEN TO CONGRESS OF BERNANKE’S SIGNATURE ON THE ILLEGITIMATE S.W.I.F.T. TRANSFERS, Bernanke’s incessant printing of funny money to devalue our currency, Geithner’s agreement at Bilderberg 2009 in Athens, Greece to gut the US dollar, the murder of SEAL Team 6 to cover up the bogus assassination of long-dead Osama bin Laden who died in December of 2001 from Marfan’s Syndrome, the proven fake Osama bin Laden videos produced by the CIA to fool the Amerikan People shown on the US Propaganda Ministry networks, the faked assassination of Osama bin Laden to distract the Amerikan People from his patently utterly ridiculous fake Birth Certificate that was proven to be a forgery in a matter of minutes worldwide, the fake, illegitimate, and heinously genocidal evil War on Terror based on the 9/11 lie, the coverup of the 9/11 Commission, the forced, waterboarded “confession” of Khalid Sheikh Mohammad to satisfy the government’s lie and provide cover for the true mastermind of 9/11: Mossad Deputy Chief Michael Harari, the FBI Murrah Bldg false-flag, false-flag at Aurora Colorado, false-flag at the Gulf of Tonkin to facilitate the slaughter of 56,000 Amerikans, the false-flag sinking of the US Maine, the false-flag at Boston Marathon, job-killing passage by BOTH parties of WTO-GATT and NAFTA, CAFTA… against the majority of the Amerikan People, Fast & Furious coverup with endless redactions, Benghazigate, NSA spying on everything under the sun, a continuous, reckless, wanton disregard and contempt for the US Constitution, the Bill of Rights, and the rule of law, obstruction of justice and voter disenfranchisement by numerous federal judges, Attorneys General, and Secretaries of State by refusing to prosecute Obama for endless crimes, IRS targeting of TEA partiers, endless un-Constitutional laws like Obamacare, Amnesty legislation continually proposed by BOTH parties against the majority of the Amerikan People, the unlawful Federal Reserve, un-Constitutional Abortion on Demand, Watergate, Flight 800 coverup, assassinations and coverups of JFK, RFK, MLK, JFK Jr., Marilyn Monroe, Princess Diana, Breitbart, Michael Hastings, Gary Webb, Senator Paul Wellstone, Bill Gwatney, Pat Tillman, Bill Cooper, Ron Brown, Vince Foster, DC Madam Jeannette Palfrey, CIA Director William Colby, and many, many others who witnessed the Clinton and Bush’s drug operations out of Mena, Arkansas. The politicians in our government have been/are/will be serial murderers, rapists, tax cheats, money launderers, real estate fraudsters, id thieves and forgers, drug traffickers, human traffickers, torturers, NWO psychopaths, abortionists, sodomites, pathological liars, pedophiles, and yes, even satanists. NOW, WHY ON EARTH COULD WE NOT TRUST SUCH BENEVOLENT SOULS???? WHAT IS THERE NOT TO LOVE ABOUT THESE ANGELS???

  • Quester55

    If HILLARY & BILL CLINTON want to truly Do Something Profound to Garner The Trust of the AMERICAN PEOPLE, In trusting their GOVERNMENT Again, They Need to Do These 3 Simple Things: 1. dress up like the Crusaders of Old, Hillery & bill as King & Queen, and have OBAMA Dressed as Their Court(FOOL)Jester,

    2. Take Air-Force 1 & Book a Trip to, CAIRO, EGYPT , in Secret.
    3. Upon Landing, Carry a Banner over their heads, Demanding the Country be Turned over to Them So you can Convert them all to Catholics!
    Hopefully, We’ll get Air-Force 1 Back with few Bullet Holes!

  • Quester55

    To keep the Cost down, Bill , Hillary & OBAMA could Allow themselves to be TARED & FEATHERED & Road out of Washington D.C. On a RAIL, that Might help me along in trusting our government a little bit more!

  • Quester55

    In Reality It would be a Far easier thing to change the Citizens Mind about the way they Feel about Their Government, If Said Government would RETURN ALL of OUR RIGHTS that they have Removed over the Last 60 Years.
    Barring that, Committing an HONORABLE DEATH, to themselves, Would be respected by Most!
    At the Very lease, WE could Lock all of there Doors & block all of the Windows & fumigate the Rats!

  • Debbie Hogan Tate

    I don’t trust her and I WILL NOT vote for Hillary! I would write in a vote for my dog first! My dog is loyal to where he lives and will protect me! More than I can say for her or the “O”!! Guess who was fired from the Watergate investigation because of her “ethics” or complete disregard of them? Read this and find out!. Especially under “A Tiger Never Loses Its Stripes”! She was dishonest, underhanded and a liar even back then! I remember her well, as I am in my 60’s! No votes here! Obama and Hillary are two rotten peas in a rotting pod. Go to Capital Hill Daily and type in “What the Scandals mean for 2016″. Also at the “powerline blog” is this “hillary-clinton-culpable-for-benghazi-from-beginning-to-end”. Vote them out in 2014, vote them all out! And do not vote for Clinton unless you want more of the same thing that Obama has been dishing out! And about her concussion that she had . . sandhyajainarchive at .org and type in “was-hillary-clinton-on-a-secret-mission-to-iran”. She is just a piece of crap that Obama is backing! Doesn’t that tell you something right there!

    • AD

      I would not vote for hillary to save my life. I seriously mean that.

      • Bud Wood

        I’d need to think about that.

  • AD

    We DON’T trust the government, and I tell ya… more WORDS will do nothing to fix that. Nothing will, because we know it is a corrupt and evil organization to its very core. You can’t fix that with WORDS.

  • IsThisAmerica

    Aw geez, shut the hell up Clinton, no one believes you either, you lying, murdering, scum bag. “What difference does it make now anyway?” Remember your words you pos? You can go to hell with your buddy McCain. Do you really think no one pays any attention or forgets so easily what you did? Called Benghazi? Remember? Might be why you did a fast disappearing act. You low life, chicken s—, piece of scum.

  • Vash the Stampede

    It will take years to regain my trust. Years of not sh!!!ing on the Constitution, staying in a budget, U.S. debt & politician pay reduction. Prosecute the wrong doings of Government officials and employees. War on terror ended.You cannot win it. Killing them in one country and arming & backing them in another. That should have people spitting hot rocks.
