Hillary Clinton will be launching a PAC to provide financial support for Leftist candidates in 2018.
You read that right.
The woman who campaigned against the Citizens United decision and vowed to nominate Supreme Court justices who would overturn it is taking full advantage of the very thing Citizens United permits.
Hillary’s own campaign website had a page devoted to overturning Citizens United and ending “secret, unaccountable money in politics.”
But now she’s forming a PAC chock full of “secret, unaccountable money.”
Her campaign website includes this quote from June 22, 2016:
”There’s no question that we need to make Washington work much better than it does today. And that means, in particular, getting unaccountable money out of our politics. … That’s why I’m so passionate about this issue, and I will fight hard to end the stranglehold that the wealthy and special interests have on so much of our government.”
“I’m so passionate.”
Right up until the time she decided to form a PAC in order to rake in a butt-load of unaccountable money.
“I will fight hard.”
Right up until embracing the “stranglehold that the wealthy and special interests have on so much of our government” benefits her. Then her hard fight will come to an end.
Well, as the old saying goes. If you can’t beat’em, join’em!
I’d say she’s a hypocrite. But she isn’t.
You can’t be a hypocrite if you never really meant what you said in the first place.
All of Hillary’s campaign platform was made up of carefully poll-tested hot-button issues. They don’t come from the heart. They came from political strategists and campaign consultants.
Hillary Clinton is passionate about one thing: Hillary Clinton.
And she will fight hard for only two things: Wealth and power.
And not America’s wealth and power. Only Hillary Clinton’s wealth and power.
Besides, forming a PAC may be a great way to drum up big money donations from Saudi Arabia now that the Clinton Foundation is teetering on the brink of collapse.
On top of that, Hillary will once again hit the 6-figure speaking circuit.
Because if she still has a hankering to whine about Russia, misogyny and James Comey, she might as well get paid for it.
As Daniel Greenfield pointed out at Front Page Magazine:
In our political tradition, losers go away. But the Clintons are the cockroaches of American politics. Getting nuked 306 to 232 won’t get rid of them. Instead they crawl out of the rubble, greedy antennas twitching, to cash in on their latest disaster.
