Bill and Hillary have a Kevin Spacey Problem.
It’s not just the Gruber “Smarter than You” Class watching House of Cards.
There are regular folks out there… or at least those who consider themselves ‘regular’ folks, watching. Many of those ‘regular’ folks have jobs in the media. And this presents the serious problem we are witnessing before our eyes in terms of how Hillary Clinton’s Presidential run is being covered.
For those that don’t know, or don’t watch, House of Cards is a Netflix drama set in D.C. in which a Sociopathic Politician, Kevin Spacey, manuevers his way through the political jungle to rise to the Presidency. The show practically writes itself as it is based on actual, and rumored, events of the past. Of course the names have been changed to protect… the innocent? Well, to protect someone… Combine all of this with a little artistic license in order to maintain continuity between episodes, and sadly you have what most of America considers ‘History’.
Alas, there is the problem for Hill and Bill.
It has been posited that Frank Underwood (Spacey’s character) has been modeled on Bill Clinton, and Claire Underwood (Robin Wright’s character) modeled on Hillary. It’s closer to the truth that Frank and Claire are Both Hillary and Bill as a mash-up of personality traits and behaviors. Frank is both Bill and Hillary just as Claire is both Bill and Hillary… however the composites of the characters were crafted, you can quickly see how very, very, unhelpful the last two years of Cards has been for the Clintons.
Cards in now in Season 3… that’s two full years and counting of Americans viewing what they most assuredly believe to be ‘the way things are done’ in Washington. The ‘regular’ folks see the show as real, the very same way they viewed the West Wing as real. (This always amused me. I’ve met a number of these ‘brilliant’ people. I can attest to the fact they never think as fast as Sorkin’s characters, and in the rare instant they did the thoughts that escaped their mouths were on the far horizon from what most of us would consider intelligent.)
Viewing this, it becomes easy for the American public to see Hillary’s creation of a Private Server to hide communications from her employer… the U.S Government, Her Family Foundation accepting Huge amounts of money for speeches given by a sallow former President whose claim to fame is not inhaling and diddling the help, the corresponding use of her influence in favor of countries traditionally considered hostile to the United States as well as the promise of a future Presidency and the influence associated with that position which could benefit said countries, in an appropriately cynical light.
It has also been rumored that Bill Clinton has been repeatedly asked to make a cameo on the show… even though Bill and Kevin are personal friends, one must seriously doubt Bill could survive what would be thrown at him should such a direct, unabashed, connection be made. If it did, I’m sure Hillary would find something with a bit more heft than an a lamp to hit Bill with.

If you haven’t yet viewed the interview of Bill Clinton on the Today Show… you must.
OK. First, Who was THAT Guy? It certainly wasn’t the Bill Clinton we all grew up to Know and Suspect.
Obviously this was some imposter brought in by The Clintons to throw us all off the track.
Between the appearance of a cadaver and all the bug eyed ‘Hems’ and ‘Haws’ there can be no doubt THIS was Not Bill Clinton.
So bad was this interview you might think it was the first time he had heard about the assertions emanating from the “Clinton Cash” book regarding his, and his wife’s, perpetually shady personal wealth accumulation. It even arrives at a moment when you could expect him to break into a loud “WHAAaaAAaAaaaaaaaaat?!”
This version of Bill Clinton was clearly unprepared for the very interview set up so He could knock it out of the park.
As much as I enjoy Bill stumbling around a bunch of softballs questions which were certainly pre-screened before the interview, it was genuinely painful to watch.
This is very different from the polished, prepared, statements we expect from the Clintons.
So what does this mean?
It means this book has them seriously concerned. More so than I would have expected. To understand what I’m saying you have to remember, these were the people who illegally accessed 400 FBI files on members of Congress… They were the people who purposely destroyed the lives and livelihoods of a number of women all because Bill had, or tried to have, sex with them… often without their approval.
These are the people who go to funerals and laugh their heads off until the moment they spy a camera and suddenly become sullen and consumed with grief.
These are the people who would debate on the meaning of “is” and the definition of “sex”.
They steal furniture from the White House… their staff ripped all the “W” keys off of the White House computer keyboards before the Bush staffers have to take over… they rented out the Lincoln Bedroom.
These are the people whose friends praised them because they were such good liars.
I must say I’m surprised.
What I just sat through was far from the caliber of work I expect from a Clinton.
So now I’m fully anticipating a statement from the Clinton Camp that “Bill was body-snatched by aliens…” because that could be the only explanation for such a train wreck.
I hadn’t planned on reading Schweizer’s book as I already know these people are the worst of the worst… and I don’t need more examples or evidence.
But now I have to.
And here’s a question… Is ‘Tax Avoidance’ now Cool since Romney’s not running?

We now know that The Clinton Foundation was accepting Hundreds of Millions in Donations from Foreign Powers while Hillary was Secretary of State.
Does it now make sense that Hillary would want the ability to communicate with said Foreign Powers without the fear of her communications becoming public… or for that matter, even becoming available to the U.S. State Department?
The latest defense being offered by the Hillary Camp is;
“There is no evidence any of this was tied to the Secretary of State.”
Not “Hillary was not involved.”
Rather; “…no evidence…”
Well… She Wiped the Server…
Short of a Foreign Contributor coming forward with a complaint that their money didn’t buy them the influence they were promised…
And as long as She’s running… what Contributor would walk away from their investment?
The possibility remains she could be elected President.
If she drops out… or loses… I predict there will be plenty of evidence.
However, there will be no one in the Media who will care.
“At This Point, What Does it REALLY MATTER?!”

Jeb Bush is refusing to discuss the illegalities associated with Foreign donations to The Clinton Foundation and subsequent State Department Favors being Doled Out by Hillary.
Jeb will not be forced to criticize his “Brother From Another Mother.” Bill Clinton or Bill’s Wife… H.R. Clinton.
Keeping it in the Family…
The Winning Ticket for 2016!
