A former United States Navy Pilot (Naval Flight Officer/Aviator) asks Hillary Clinton a VALID question.
As a former United States Air Force Navigator (Air Force Flight Office/Aviator) with nearly identical training, background and security clearance, I wholeheartedly concur with the point he makes: “As a Naval flight officer I held a Top Secret Compartmentalized Information (TS/SCI) clearance that provided me access to materials and information highly sensitive to our warfighting capabilities. Had I communicated this information not following prescribed protocols, I would have been prosecuted and imprisoned. Secretary Clinton, how can you expect those such as myself who were and are entrusted with America’s most sensitive information to have any confidence in your leadership as president when you clearly corrupted our national security?”
Her response DOES NOT MATTER.
What matters is her disdain and the vitriol painted all over her face. This military officer raises a perfectly valid point to which Hillary’s only response is utter disdain. If that’s her BEST response to our nation’s military in a public forum during during an election year, immediatly prior to the election, how do you think she will respond to valid military advice once in office?
She doesn’t care. She ALONE thinks she knows better than the MILLIONS of American members of the Armed Forces, the Federal Bureau of Investigation, the National Security Agency, the Central Intelligence Agency, and all other highly trained people with exceptional skills and experience in all our agencies entrusted with such information.
SHE JUST DOESN’T GET IT. She is oblivious to the fact that certain information MUST be protected at all costs, that both American and foreign lives are at stake should that information get out, and that some information, if released, could lead to war, costing tens of thousands, hundreds of thousands, and even millions of American lives.
SHE DOESN’T GET IT. She is absolutely CLUELESS, and the lives of our sons and daughters (if not our own) hang in the balance.
Her own attitude and rampantly criminal behavior has utterly disqualified herself from having access to ANY classified information, yet she wants to be the President of the United States? Commander in Chief of the Armed Forces?
She is utterly, absolutely PATHETIC. Totally unqualified for the position. In fact, forty years of her own experience and behavior DISQUALIFIES her, beginning with her being FIRED from the Watergate investigation for “gross ethical violations” to her being fired, by Obama, no less, for the same damned thing as Secretary of State. If she were to apply for a job involving access to classified information in ANY country, no country in the WORLD would EVER hire her, including the United States of America.
If you’re voting for Johnson, STOP. The goal is no longer about voting for your favorite candidate. The goal is to prevent Hillary from getting into office AT ALL COSTS. She absolutely can NOT be entrusted with classified information, much less the vaunted and critical position as the executive office of the world’s most powerful country.
This isn’t a popularity contest, people. This issue is extremely serious and the stakes are very, very high. You own lives, and the lives of millions of other Americans, including your children are DEFINITELY hanging in the balance.
We live in a global economy. Trump has already established good relations with both Russia and China. His unparalled successs with 515 successful businesses and just 5 failures is absolutely unheard of in the business world, where less tha 20% of all ventures succeed. Trump’s success rate blows past all odds at 99.029%, putting him well into the top 1% of most successful businessmen of all time. By comparison, all Hillary has “accomplished” is the widespread, wholesale, and TRAITOROUS trade of American favors compromising our national security in exchange for millions, if not billions of dollars in foreign donations to the Clinton Foundation and Clinton Global Initiative. If you don’t believe me, just go to YouTube and search Clinton Cash for the scathingly detailed and accurate revelation of Hillary’s and Bill’s horrendous violations of our nation’s most precious endeavors (it’s called “traitorism,” people). Alternatively, just follow the link: https://youtu.be/7LYRUOd_QoM
Hillary Clinton absolutely MUST be stopped AT ALL COSTS, and you can NOT acomplish that by voting for Johnson.
Only Donald J. Trump has the backing to win this election, but ONLY if you actually get out and VOTE for him.
We’ve been down this road not once, but FIVE TIMES in the last forty years, and it has ALWAYS gotten us NOWHERE. It’s time to GET OFF the madness train and do something RIGHT for a change. VOTE TRUMP.
It’s time We the People work smarter, not harder. Begin with reality and proceed from their. If Gary Johnson were in the running, I’d have no problem voting for him. But Johnson is not in the running. Trump is. There’s far too much at stake here, namely making dang sure that Hillary doesn’t win. There’s no way in hell I will fail to cast a deciding vote on that issue by wasting it on a candidate like Johnson who doesn’t stand a snowball’s chance in hell of beating Clinton.
Question: Did Carson lie about being offered a “full scholarship” to West Point?
Evidence (according to Politico):
1. In his book, “Gifted Hands,” Carson describes a 1969 meeting with Gen. William Westmoreland — fresh off four years of directing the U.S. military strategy in Vietnam — that Carson said resulted in being offered a “full scholarship” to West Point.
2. Carson’s campaign admitted that the former neurosurgeon not only fabricated the story of his acceptance into the prestigious military academy, but he never actually applied. This concession came after Politico obtained evidence from a West Point spokesperson that the academy has no record of Carson’s application or his admission — calling into question a key piece of the presidential hopeful’s personal history.
3. “Dr. Carson was the top ROTC student in the city of Detroit,” Barry Bennett, Carson’s campaign manager, told Politico. “In that role he was invited to meet General Westmoreland. He believes it was at a banquet. He can’t remember with specificity their brief conversation but it centered around Dr. Carson’s performance as ROTC city executive officer. He was introduced to folks from West Point by his ROTC supervisors,” Bennett continued in his email to Politico. “They told him they could help him get an appointment based on his grades and performance in ROTC. He considered it but in the end did not seek admission.”
My take on it: To a young individual who does not fully understand the appointment system to the U.S. service academies, being told by folks at West Point that they can help you obtain an appointment can certainly seem like you’re being told that you’ve been offered a scholarship. Obtaining an appointment, however, is only half the process. You must still be selected by board. If Carson was indeed the top ROTC student in the city of Detroit with high grades, however, then changes were high that he’d have been selected — IF he could obtain an actual appointment, which is NOT an easy accomplishment.
3. The West Point spokesperson told Politico it’s entirely possible that Westmoreland spoke to the 17-year-old Carson and perhaps encouraged the young ROTC student to consider applying to the academy. However, Politico questions whether that fabled encounter with the famous general even took place.
Although Politico tends to have a Republican tilt, it sounds to me like the media is seeking to shed light on the principle danger of electing Carson to the White House: He’s way out of his league. Whether or not he actually lied or was simply sharing his inexperienced perspective using terms he know is beside the point. He walked into this landmine. He’s a newbie stumbling along, ready to stumble headlong into numerous political traps. Is that the kind of leader our country needs in these dangerous times? Don’t get me wrong, as he is by no means “stupid,” and I do admire his religious convictions. The world of medicine, however, is not a suitable training ground for becoming the leader of the most powerful country in the world. Combined with his pension for refusing to see the Constitution for what it is, word for word, I really don’t think he’s the right man for the job.
Ben Carson just doesn’t have what it takes to navigate the tough political landscape of Washington D.C., much less the world at large.
Trump, on the other hand, does have what it takes, not only with respect to politics, but also with respect to business, and if you haven’t figured it out, yet, America survives and thrives on its global economic and business ties.
