Hillary's Ambition Has Its Limits
- Hillary Clinton blatantly disregarded protocol responsibilities under President Obama
- a "Shadow Government" group was employed to discuss ways to influence the FOIA process
- member Patrick Kennedy used quid pro quo in an attempt to bribe those reviewing of Secretary Clinton’s emails.
by Vince Lanci | The bullet points above are really the salient points in this most recent pattern of abuse by one of our leaders. Hillary Clinton is not too bright, a malignant narcissist who not only thinks she's above it all, and is incapable of even pretending to keep up appearances. Sorry, Hillary is an ethical moron and a disgrace to feminism. She rode the coattails of an equally ambitious man who knew how to keep up appearances. She is one of many to operate this way. She is not unlike her philandering husband, who was arrogant enough to get caught in an age of information. Kennedy, Lincoln, most of our great Presidents might not make the messianic standard we now expect of our politicians. But the Clintons' arrogance is the key to their exposure. And Hillary has twice Bill's ambition, and half his common sense. Or, maybe Bill just ruined it for her with his own lack of impulse control? What self-respecting feminist stays married to this man? An ambitious one.
FBI Cliff Notes
- Protocol Claims of Hillary disregarding protocol are not to be taken lightly, and direct comparisons can be made with her predecessor Condaleeza Rice
- While both may be unfit for representing the people, Hillary's behavior shows a total feeling of being untouchable
- A good elitist at least keeps up appearances, Hillary is just not that smart folks
- "Shadow Gov't" nice headline. Silly press, it's the "War Room" PRE-election. Shadow Gov't comes Post-election
- This is a logical application of the Clinton "war room" concept. Formed to weigh risks of actions in defense of their employer
- assessing risks of potential actions they often are enabled to operate amorally: Bribe, threaten, or cajole
- Some are loyalists, some are ladder climbers, some coattail riders, all are embracers of the game
- they exist for every person in power. The Clintons elevated the concept (and risks) by putting them in the same room
- Quid Pro Quo = this for that, talk is cheap, but we doubt it can be proven
- proving Bill Clinton gave Loretta Lynch's child a bicycle in return for not prosecuting his wife, you have bribery
- without facts, it still may be obvious to you, but opinions do not carry legal weight
- if you think quid-pro-quo can be proven with regard to Patrick Kennedy, you are naive
Even Camille Paglia, the "lipstick" feminist who advised utilizing feminity as a tool to succeed recognizes Hillary for what she is:
‘Hillary Clinton’s feminism is a fraud. She rode her husband’s coattails to wealth and power, and she has amorally colluded in the vilification and destruction of female victims of her husband’s serial abuse.’
N.B.-this author's own "coattail" comments were written well before even looking up Paglia's opinion. The author fully expected push-back as Paglia is all about using male/female differences to succeed. That is how obvious Hillary Clinton's betrayal is.

New FBI Docs Reveal 'Shadow Government' Protected Hillary in Email Investigation
Alice Salles and theAntiMedia.org.| While serving as Secretary of State under President Barack Obama, Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton “blatantly” disregarded protocol, an issue that prompted an official to say that there was a “stark difference” between Clinton’s “obedience to security and diplomatic protocols” and the behavior of former Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice. The details come from a Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) report released Monday.
“This frequently resulted in complaints by ambassadors who were insulted and embarrassed by this breach of protocol,” the summary reads. According to the FBI docs, the interviewee also added that “Clinton’s [use of a private email server was] well known throughout Diplomatic Security, and [breaches] were ‘abundant.’”
The 100-page document contains interview summaries conducted by the FBI along with notes from its agents, which may offer the public a glimpse into the government’s official Clinton email investigation.
The last 100-page release is the fourth installment of documents related to the Clinton email probe recently released by the FBI. The most recent release also contains allegations regarding a “quid pro quo” request from Patrick F. Kennedy, the undersecretary of state for management, among other claims.
According to the FBI document, Kennedy “pressured FBI agents to change the classification on sensitive documents found on Hillary Clinton’s private email server” in “exchange for a ‘quid pro quo.’” Promptly after the document’s release, both the FBI and State Department denied such an arrangement took place — but that didn’t stop the U.S. House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform from demanding more information on the exchange.
In a letter addressed to Secretary of State John Kerry, the committee chair, Rep. Jason Chaffetz (R-CA), along with Rep. Devin Nunes (R-CA), the chair of the U.S. House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence, claimed to have reasons to believe Kennedy “inappropriately influenced the review of Secretary Clinton’s emails.”
Despite the uproar the release sparked due to the bribery allegations, some news organizations took particular interest in the FBI document’s mention of “the Shadow Government,” a group of “very high-ranking STATE officials that some referred to as ‘The 7th Floor Group’ or ‘The Shadow Government.’”
According to the FBI probe, “[t]his group met every Wednesday afternoon to discuss the FOIA process, Congressional records, and everything CLINTON-related to FOIA/Congressional inquiries.”
In the letter to Secretary Kerry, Chaffetz and Nunes added that members of the Shadow Government included Kennedy and “several former attorneys from the law firm that has represented [Clinton] in this investigation, Williams & Connolly LLP,” suggesting Clinton’s legal representatives may have influenced the FBI much like Kennedy attempted to.
Both congressmen are now urging Kerry to remove Kennedy from his post until further investigation can show proof the undersecretary did not have anything to do with the FBI’s decision not to prosecute Clinton.
In the FBI’s summary, the Shadow Government is said to have urged the FBI to drop the investigation documents all at once “for coordination purposes.” This information comes from an unidentified person, the FBI documents claim.
Usually, the bureau releases investigation documents on a rolling basis, releasing batches of investigation documents in its official vault. The group of very high-ranking State officials allegedly urged officials to do the opposite, but they did not get their way.
Regardless, after announcing the investigation had been concluded, FBI Director James Comey decided not to prosecute former Secretary of State Clinton, claiming the move was apolitical.
“I want the American people to know we really did this the right way,” Comey said in July. “You can disagree with us, but you cannot fairly say we did it in any kind of political way. We don’t carry water for anybody. We were trying to do what the right thing is.”
At the time, Comey explained he arrived at that particular decision because “no reasonable prosecutor would bring this case, no reasonable prosecutor would bring the second case in 100 years focused on ‘gross negligence.’” Nevertheless, the FBI’s own notes seem to argue that Clinton and her State Department minions may have been involved in criminal acts other than gross negligence.
