The latest attack against another Democrat by Hillary Clinton is curious unless you are familiar with her past. The former secretary of state, U.S. senator, and former first lady erupted in a tirade against Rep. Tulsi Gabbard (D-Hawaii), who is running for president. She also provided the same attack against Jill Stein as a third-party candidate. She implicitly labeled them both as assets of the Russian leadership. Gabbard is a major in the Hawaiian National Guard and an American asset. One would expect Hillary to be held to a higher standard. But then that would differ from the history of press coverage she has enjoyed throughout the years.
Clinton still believes that she won the election in 2016. She can’t accept that she is solely responsible for her loss. Her supporters have followed her lead in resisting the presidency of Donald Trump. With some Obama administration officials, they unleashed the Russian collusion hoax. Despite the conclusion of the Mueller investigation of Trump, the matter morphed into obstruction of justice and now political abuse of power with Ukraine and military material support.
But you have to go back to 2000 to remember that Hillary opposed the election of George W. Bush since he had not won the popular vote against Al Gore. Later, the California absentee vote revealed a much closer vote, generally not reported by the liberal press. Our Constitution’s Electoral College does not seem to matter to Hillary.
So why is Hillary so focused on Gabbard? During the 2016 Democratic primaries, the party had rigged the process against Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.). It was clearly Hillary’s effort to ensure her nomination. Tulsi Gabbard found this unacceptable and supported Sanders after resigning her high-level position within the party. Clinton carries her grudges, and this is payback. read more
