As of now, I am in control here, in the White House

Morning Joe: Why Does Clinton Keep Lying?

Because that’s what the Clintons do. Unfortunately for them, they’re not very good at it anymore.

The latest: A federal judge now says that Hillary did, in fact, violate policy by keeping emails on her own server. What’s more, looks like not only her server, but the devices used by her aides were also scrubbed or destroyed.

The FBI is involved. Do people get this? A presidential candidate is under criminal investigation. Her claims about the emails are demonstrably false. She is going to survive.

  1. Did you mean “She is “not” going to survive” for that last sentence or “Is she going to survive”?
    If the former, I agree, if the later no, she will not.
    My Sunday column ends with her coming full circle from her stint as a staffer on the ’74 Watergate committee “What did the President know and when did he know it” to the updated and paraphrased version that will end her political career:
    “With the FBI and its fiercely independent director James Comey now in charge of Hillary’s erased server, it is only a matter of time before the question “Who gave the order to wipe it and when was it given?” finds its way into future history books as the moment that the Presidency of the United States of America, permanently slipped through the grasp of one Hillary Rodham Clinton.”

    The only day that will get more celebration than the day Hillary is finally toast is January 20, 2017. :)

        • Nope. The Morning Joe crowd uses “man bites dog” to lure in clueless viewers. No offense Star…or Keith.

          That show is unwatchable to me.

          • Completely disagree–but that is what makes horse races. Sometimes people I used to know are on–and they get people who read and are intelligent, even if I don’t agree with them. Some of the regulars–like Donnie and Gene are hard to take. Like MSNBC’s Juans. Ignatius is smart, Haass, even Mika’s dad, Ratner (loves Hillary but has good stats), Geist. And who can beat Mika’s frowny face…never gets old. So funny. I could not take F&F, or any of the alphabet morning shows–we are oppo on this.

          • I’m with Star again. I rarely miss the first hour of Morning Joe. Like what they say or not, they actually report NEWS and they talk about an issue in depth. Meanwhile, Fox has on the 6 year old whose dog ate her homework. MJ engages the viewer.

  2. Hillary Clinton keeps on lying because she has been a pathological liar all of her adult life, and has gotten away with it. She’s survived largely because the MSM has protected her, and has peddled only her side of the story. This time feels different, though she may still survive, depending on what deal she and Billy have cut with Obama–who is, surely, purposely torturing her on this issue.

    Weird to watch identical political animals devour themselves in public.

    Will Hillary survive? Depends on Barry’s desires. And what bat snot crazy ValJar decides, of course.

    • As someone who knows Bill from his days as days as Gov. Clinton, and never a supporter, I promise you, Bill’s “chance meeting” on the golf course with obama this past weekend was no accident. Bill met with obama on the golf course – no recordings, no note pads, no aides when they were one on one in the golf cart (See Daily Mail photos/article) Bill was making a plea bargain – Hillary drops out – throws her cash and operational machine behind Biden/Warren, obama drops the FBI investigation – plus Presidential Pardon on 1/19/2017 for Hillary. Bill, Hill and Chelsea keep the slush fund machine. No way obama nor Val Jarret allow the Clinton’s back at 1600. Again, review the photographs – Bill was begging and obama was not listening.
      Also – the LAST event ever Bill wants to take place is Hillary to be elected POTUS.

      • Absolutely agree with you. The “chance” meeting was set up by Bill and Hillary’s aides (likely) at Bill’s request. There is no way these two hustlers showed up on the same day, the same time, same out-of-the way golf course by accident.

        Agree also with your position on the contents of the deal. I’m thinking that Hillary will bow out of the race by October-November, 2015 for “medical reasons”, long before the July 2016 Democrat convention, so she won’t even be a factor impeding the Biden/Warren ticket. Probably part of the deal concocted on the gold course.

      • I noticed that meeting as well. I feel if he drops all this, he should explain himself to us/Petraues. Of course that will not happen as well.

  3. You know, I’m not so sure she’s going to survive, especially given today’s report that the emails were “born classified.”

    What’s her best defense here? “I’m just a befuddled old woman”? I think she’s in genuine legal danger because, otherwise, the law is meaningless.

  4. Pretty soon, she’ll have nowhere to run,
    And the trial to come should be fun.
    There might be quite the crack-up
    If the Dems have no backup.
    Stick a fork in Mizz Clinton. She’s done.

  5. She’s tarnished what’s left of her reputation. This incident just shows she’s even incompetent to cover her tracks. Perhaps this is Karma coming back to collect.

    • You know how they say that like attracts like?

      And how they also say that karma is…well…the name of a #2 hit song by Meredith Brooks?

  6. Why does Clinton keep lying?

    “A scorpion asks a frog to carry it across a river. The frog hesitates, afraid of being stung, but the scorpion argues that if it did so, they would both drown. Considering this, the frog agrees, but midway across the river the scorpion does indeed sting the frog, dooming them both. When the frog asks the scorpion why, the scorpion replies that it was in its nature to do so.”

    The fable is used to illustrate that fundamentally vicious natures cannot change, that some people will be vicious even if it is self-destructive, or perhaps more broadly, that people and creatures cannot change fundamental aspects of their character.

    • Very good Veritaseequitas. Do you have another one for the people who can not see any wrong in someone they love/like?
      A love is blind fable.

  7. I wonder if this was deep Chicago politics. The Obamans learn that H has a private server. They know this is WRONG and DANGEROUS, but they do nothing because they also know the rope that they are giving her will hang her candidacy. What is national security compared to the chance to stick it to the Clintons — especially delicious since Bill had to come out of retirement at that one point to help Barry with a couple of official press briefings. Don’t think The One ever got over playing student to Bill’s Presidential charm.

  8. U.S. Marines subdue a man on a French train. Man opened Fire. Three people hit. French terror police involved with investigation. He is from Morocco. He is already known to intelligence.
    Thanks to our Marines.
    Reading now on and listened to report on Fox.

  9. …I am a US Navy Vet, who has had “life/health issues” over the past few years…
    -And because of that I could never pass a SF-86-SSBI…and get a ‘Secret/Top Secret/TSI:SCI’ clearance

    • Hang in there brother Spook.
      I held a TS for the time I was in.
      Never was in Country in Nam,…the equipment that I maintained was never allowed near a battle field.

      I got close though if you consider the Philippines close.

      I will never forget the inter branch rivalries we had between the Air Force, Army, Navy and Marines.
      Always chiding each other.
      Off base was a different matter though.
      One attack on any one of us was enough to rally all of us, no matter what branch to the defense.
