Hillary Clinton may be the whiniest person in the world. Last week the multi-millionaire claimed that when she and Bill Clinton left the White House, they were “dead broke.”

Hillary was dead wrong about that. She had signed an $8 million book contract before leaving the White House. She now makes $200,000 per speech. Her kid makes $600,000 per year from NBC for not even showing up.

Now Hillary tells Jane Pauley that America’s politics are the most “brutal” in the world.

Pauley asks Hillary if she won’t be the first woman president, who will?

Hillary answers “Whoever runs has to recognize that the American political system is probably the most difficult, even brutal, in the world.”

She must be describing how tough the campaign for the presidency is. Sure, it’s tough on the brain and the body. But brutal? The most brutal in the world?

As Hillary says this, Iraqis are being forced to choose sides between an inept Shiite government that has oppressed religious minorities, and the al Qaeda-linked ISIS — which is bragging that it is slaughtering Iraqi soldiers and police by the truckload. Syria’s civil war pits a ruthless dictator against Islamist rebels.

Boko Haram, which Clinton would not even call a terrorist group when she was secretary of state, has kidnapped hundreds of girls and killed hundreds of other people.

China still imprisons dissidents. North Korea still imprisons dissidents, and shoots them, and incarcerates their families. It used to kidnap Japanese children and brainwash them for the purpose of infiltrating Japanese society. The Russian oligarchy suppresses dissent and is believed to have murdered journalists. Even Canada’s restrictions on free speech are tougher than America’s.

It’s time to ask: Is Hillary Clinton insane?

Hillary is clearly an historical illiterate.

She needs to sit down with Robert Conquest's book The Great Terror (either the 1968 original edition, the 30th anniversary edition or the 40th anniversary edition) and find out how politicians fared in Stalin's day. Or better yet, talk one-on-one with Conquest while she still can (he's 96) and find out how truly brutal politics can be. She'd find that politics in Stalin's era would make American politics look like a paper-cut compared to a beheading.

Stalin made and broke alliances as he saw fit to manipulate the Politburo and then destroyed his former allies. I don't mean that he damaged their reputations: he killed them. Many were tortured brutally. At least one eyewitness said that Stalin personally slugged Marshal Tukhachevsky, the top man in the Red Army, and broke his nose. (When Tukhachevsky's confession was retrieved from the Soviet archives, it had blood on it which tends to support the eyewitness.) Tukhachevsky and many of the top military men were shot within hours of having been arrested and made to sign false confessions.

I would defy her to name any comparable moment at any point in American history. Even one.

"Hillary is clearly an historical illiterate. "

Yes, and an economic illiterate, and a political illiterate, and a science (of the basic middle school variety) illiterate, and....

Well, I could go on, but you get the picture.


This is typical of the left. They are uneducated, in that they don't know much, and they are mal-educated, in that what they DO know is usually wrong.

Definitely showing signs of something going awry in that cranium, or, what we've been told of her intellect never was really true. Just like that guy that beat her in 2008.

Nothing new here. Leftists are like this. They have no perspective. They are spoiled brats, and judge almost everything by its effect on the big ME ME ME.

Remember, these are the people who think that pulling out toenails, burning with acid, chopping off fingers, and the like, are morally equivalent to a training exercise used on our troops.

Wait. Jane Pauley? Bryant Gumbel wasn't available? Good Lord, we have a crappy president, a stinking economy, and the world on fire. Who called the late '70s/early '80s and invited them back for a reunion tour?
