Why Hillary Will Kill Us All

This week two significant revelations took place that should permanently swing the election away from the nominee for the Democrats.
Both revelations demonstrated that Hillary Clinton is either the world’s biggest buffoon when handling national security, or she is the world’s most dishonest person living. America is beginning to see why it is so much the latter.
On Thursday of this week, revelations came to the fore that the administration—specifically the secretary of state’s office and the president—in the run up to the implementation of the Iran deal—specifically knew that Iran was not in compliance with the terms of the deal as announced. Regardless, the administration gave permission for Iran to cheat on the terms, and pushed forward with the implementation. They did so while telling the American people that Iran had met all of the required conditions—knowing they had not.
The source of this revelation was not a conservative organization, a Republican politician, or a hostile opponent to the administration. The source of these observations stem from actual negotiators from the Iran agreement and will be detailed in an upcoming report by a group that studies science and global security.
It is also not just merely the fact that the administration allowed Iran to cheat, as they were assuring the American people that Iran wasn’t, that’s the issue. The substance of what they were cheating on is also pertinent.
According to the sources—those familiar with the terms—Iran was allowed to retain control of nearly 50 tons of partially enriched uranium. The administration got around it because it presented to the American people the idea that the material had been relocated to Jordan. In reality, the material was transported under and remains in the grasp of Iranians who guard and watch it. Again we know this because of insiders to the deal. Additionally, 19 separate nuclear enrichment facilities have been allowed to retain a much larger capacity for uranium enrichment than what the American people were told, and again Clinton, Obama, Kerry knowingly allowed the Iranians to do it.
In short, the American people were told that Iran was giving up all of it’s weapons-grade uranium (or any that can be turned into it), and that the capacity of the enrichment sites were small. What the report will reveal with greater detail is that Iran has the uranium that can be weaponized, they have 50 tons of it minimum, and they have big fat enrichment sites ready to weaponize it.
The other significant revelation was the pervasive and persistent lack of knowledge that Hillary Clinton claimed in her interview with the FBI on things as simple as whether or not she ever signed non-disclosure agreements that govern her behavior as it relates to interactions with classified materials. We’ve seen that she ignored those agreements, but she told Brett Baier she didn’t remember signing them. She told the FBI she either didn’t sign them, didn’t know if she had signed them, or could not recall signing them.
On my show on Friday, my friend, Dr. Charmaine Yoest, Senior Fellow at American Values, called it the worst case of “playing the dumb blonde” card she has seen.
But being a dumb blonde to the American people should be of little consequence, what should matter tremendously is what this adds up to.
The past three nominees for president for the Democratic Party more or less colluded to smash a deal through with Iran that the American people overwhelmingly did not like and do not trust. After it was implemented aspects of the deal continue to sour us on the reliability of it to achieve even it’s own ultra ambitious objectives, much less continue basic national security.
This deal had secret side deals to it that have allowed for Iran (the world’s biggest terror state) to:
1. Police itself and self inspect enrichment facilities.
2. Demand and receive ransom in the $400,000,000 range for American hostages.
3. Keep 50 tons of it’s enriched uranium.
4. Be allowed to operate uranium enrichment at a much larger capacity than what was known.
5. Keep all of this information secret from the American people.
And now the Democratic Party asks Americans to put a woman in charge of not only this initiative (which bore her name in the early days of the process) but also to give her complete say over the remainder of all international and national security matters—when she can not remember nor seem to know if she is allowed to put classified and top secret information on a personal server that is purposefully left unprotected.
My family, like many American families, has forward serving military—some of whom deal with vital national security matters. They don’t tell us what they are. They aren’t allowed and we don’t want them to. But they deserve better than a “dumb blonde” to serve under. They deserve someone, however imperfect in many ways—will absolutely never sell out—the American people, our military, our national security, and the safety of our children.
It is a foregone conclusion, at least in my thinking, that if Hillary Clinton conducts herself as President even half as recklessly as she has to date, she will get many Americans killed.
I am not willing to give her that chance.
