With Hillary, Where There's Smoke There's Fire

By Susan Stamper Brown

Even with all her baggage, the mainstream media continues to paint Hillary Clinton as an angel of light.

As nice as she looked at her acceptance speech, fake smiles, pretty white pantsuits and Botox can't cover over ugly. The kind of ugly that flows from the inside-out. Nice smiles can't whitewash over grieving Benghazi family members that tell us she lied to them about why those heroes died. They died in a country she and President Obama botched-up so bad, the president had to authorize an uptick in U.S.-led attacks against ISIS recently.

We're told that the woman in a white pantsuit cares. Sure. Hillary showed us how much she cares -- about herself and personal convenience rather than our national security -- when she broke State Department rules and set up a personal server in her home.

Botox might freeze a frown and lines but it can't erase lies. The FBI admitted that Hillary lied to the American people about her emails and then she turned around and lied about what the FBI said about her lies.

Makeovers can't make over that.

And now WikiLeaks' Julian Assange just announced another email dump is on the way which he claims will demonstrate that Clinton tried to arm jihadists in Syria like she did in Libya. We'll wait to see, but two things are pretty certain: Hillary will deny it using infamous Clinton legalese. And the mainstream media will change the subject, introducing newfangled nonsense about why Donald Trump is unfit for the presidency.

Even if a WikiLeaks dump revealed that the newly-released ISIS "hit list" of U.S. Army soldiers' information was hacked from information on Hillary's server, we'll be told, "There's nothing to see here, time to move on."

So much is at stake, reaching far beyond Supreme Court appointments.

Let me count the ways:

It's pretty obvious that Donald Trump would make people accountable for things the media ignored. Like the time the Obama administration was caught spying on U.S. journalists...or when the Department of Justice targeted political opponents...or that the Internal Revenue Service denied tax status to conservative groups...or the Veterans Administration delayed and denied care to veterans.

Surely the Clintons fear what a Trump presidency might mean, given what happened in the Oval Office and cover-ups which followed. One of the president's "women," Kathleen Willey, wrote a book, "Target: Caught in the Crosshairs of Bill and Hillary Clinton," claiming the Clinton duo used mob-style means to keep her silent. Other women concurred. Judicial Watch reported that FBI files were illegally obtained by someone Hillary hired -- and released "in an effort to discredit the women who charged President Clinton with sexual misconduct."

To be clear, the recent email scandal isn't Hillary's first. As reported by the New York Post in May, as first lady, Hillary was caught up in "Project X." While investigating scandals to which Hillary was attached like Whitewater, Filegate and Travelgate, investigators discovered that more than a million subpoenaed emails went mysteriously missing.

Surprise, surprise.

Of course, Hillary blamed it all on a "vast right-wing conspiracy" and the Teflon duo to which nothing seems to stick received nothing more than a hand slap.

The smoke's been rising around Hillary for decades. Even still a nice promotion awaits someone so scandalous, the faithful see her presidency as part of "God's judgment on America" if she wins.

We've heard it said that there can be smoke without fire. Truth is, though, there's rarely smoke without fire. So, rather than calling for a makeover, Hillary's handlers should've grabbed fire extinguishers and called "911."
