Hillary Clinton gets bashed frequently from “our side of the aisle.” But among the many, varied and colorful descriptions applied by her political enemies to our former First Lady and former Secretary of State you don’t often find “dumb.”
Apparently she reserves that one for us. As if we need more proof of her disdain for our sense than the Benghazi cover-up now come the “revelations” in her book Hard Choices. Turns out, the former “Smartest Woman in the World” somehow found her husband and herself “dead broke” upon leaving the White House in 2000.
So they promptly bought a house worth $2.85 million.
Another revelation was her prodding of President Obama to lift what’s left of the so-called Cuba embargo. “The embargo is Castro’s best friend,” Clinton chanted to an extremely friendly audience at the Council on Foreign Relations last week while citing and promoting her book Hard Choices.
I write “friendly” because on top of David Rockefeller’s own affection for Fidel Castro, his CFR also houses as its “Senior Fellow and Director of Latin America Studies” Julia Sweig, probably the Castro regime’s top U.S. “agent of influence” as revealed by the Defense Intelligence Agency’s top Cuba spycatcher, Christopher Simmons.
Normally such agents are very discreet about their Castro-regime connection. Instead Ms Sweig blew her cover into a billion tiny pieces when in the very acknowledgements to her book Inside the Cuban Revolution, she thanks—“for their warmth, for their friendship, for opening Cuban doors and championing her project :” Elsa Montero Jose Gomez Abad, Ramon Sanchez Parodi, Jose Antonio Arbesu, Fernando Miguel Garcia, Hugo Ernesto Yedra and Josefina Vidal. Every one of these Cubans has been identified by retired Lieut. Col. Chris Simmons as KGB-trained Cuban agents.
In 1962 two of these Cuban spies (Elsa Montero, Jose Gomez Abad) were planning a terror bombing in Manhattan would have easily dwarfed the 9-11 death toll. Most of the rest were expelled from U.S. shores after Lieut. Col. Simmons himself outed them.
