If you strapped Bill Clinton to a polygraph (or some lie detector that can’t be fooled by the Clintons)—I suspect he, too, might confess to a preference for Vladimir Putin over Barack Obama.

Mr. Clinton had been appropriately scathing, in 2008, about Obama’s mythical status in the media. A “fairy tale,” he called the current president.

However, his wife and her supporters on The Hill and in media have ruled that any remotely realistic utterance about the Russian president—such as that he’s a strong leader who’s popular with his people and acts in their interests—puts you outside the camp of the saints.

Mrs. Clinton is making it a habit to tell Americans what to say and how to think if they want to qualify as … Americans.

In particular, Hillary’s AltRight screed, best described on Twitter as the Control-Alt-Delete speech, focused on Mrs. Clinton’s crusade against deviationists. Provided by a twitter handle called “Hillary’s PR Team,” here’s a distillation of the interminable smear against Trump and his supporters, peddled as “substantive” by the moron media:

Prejudice and paranoia, hate groups, harmful stereotypes, hateful supporters, systemic racism, dark conspiracies, dark conspiracy theories, racist lies, bigotry, racist, white supremacist bigot, white nationalist leader, KKK, racially tinged rumors, Alex Jones. …

Yes, Hillary’s Control-Alt-Delete harangue began with the biggest deviationist of all, Donald J. Trump. Trump “disregards the values that make our country great,” fumed the fire-and-brimstone Mrs. Clinton on that occasion.

To his great credit, Trump flunked another test of “true American principles,” established by Hillary, following the NBC’s “Commander-in-Chief” forum, on September 7.

As the media reminds us, Trump disqualifies himself for the presidency daily. This time it was for speaking the truth about Putin at the forum. The Russian people’s approval of their president stands at 82 percent. But the correct American values, as decreed by our northeastern elites, depend on disparaging Putin and his people. After all, Russians are stupid. They need Clinton and her Radical Republican counterpart, Speaker Paul Ryan (or a color-coded revolution organized by both), to induct them into the American government’s ways.

Enforcer Hillary (and Speaker Ryan) was having none of it. A preference for the Russian president over our American president was plain “unpatriotic and scary,” to be stamped out and marginalized.

“Hillary Rodham Clinton,” argues historian Clyde N. Wilson, whose métier is American intellectual history, “is a museum-quality specimen of the Yankee—self-righteous, ruthless, and self-aggrandizing.”

Wilson uses the term Yankee “historically to designate a peculiar group descended from New Englanders, who can be easily recognized by their arrogance, hypocrisy, greed, lack of congeniality, and penchant for ordering other people around.”

By Yankee, Dr. Wilson does not mean “everybody from north of the Potomac and Ohio. The firemen who died in the World Trade Center on September 11 [commemorated this weekend] were Americans. The politicians and TV personalities who stood around telling us what we are to think about it are Yankees.”

In their journey from the “hyper-Calvinism of their early days,” to “their present atheism,” Yankees like Hillary have long ago replaced religious zeal with a progressive’s political fanaticism. And while they’ve “abandoned anything that might be good in their religion,” contends Wilson, bossy busybodies like Clinton have never given up the notion that “they are the chosen saints whose mission is to make America, and the world, into the perfection of their own image.”

Again, by continuously enforcing the “standard of all things American and good,” Hillary is not that different from her Republican colleagues. They, too, deploy the values cudgel as energetically, to whip the base into shape. Or, to read many of us out of the American family.

To compound his unorthodoxy, Trump failed to fall back on the American exceptionalism exemption, in judging the actions of American leaders—good by default—relative to other world leaders. At the “Commander-in-Chief” forum, Trump intimated that Mr. Putin’s transgressions were “no less troublesome than Mr. Obama’s transgressions.” Quite right. Ask the innocent victims of Obama’s energetic drone program ongoing: villagers in Pakistan, Afghanistan, Libya and Yemen.

Effortlessly, Trump continues to be faithful to the mandate the Republican base has given him: fumigate those DC snake pits. To the Aug. 17 intelligence briefing, Trump took along a pit-bull in the person of retired Gen. Michael Flynn, who prodded the briefers … a lot.

Came the meme from media: How dare Donald and his general discomfit the intelligence experts of “The Deep State,” that state-within-a state, and one of the least scrutinized collection of government agencies.

Soon, proxies for the intelligence briefers were flocking to the lapdog media’s studios to badmouth The Donald and his uppity general.

The substance of retired Gen. Flynn’s interruptions at the briefing matters not at all. What counts is that Trump continues to make the sprawling political apparatus writhe like a fire-breathing mythical monster in the throes of death.

Next, the controlling Mrs. Clinton demanded the Republican base’s candidate for president hush his mouth about the Federal Reserve Bank. Clinton doesn’t understand much about the Fed. Instinctively, however, she knows that it’s in her interest not to discuss its inflationary actions and interest-rates price fixing.

Trump gets that the Fed is “keeping interest rates down so that everything else doesn’t go down,” and has said that “we have a very false economy.” He doesn’t lie about it. He gets that the “stock market is bloated”; that the Stock Exchange is a laughing stock, and that soaring stock prices are a consequence of centrally planned, monetary stimulus.

Naturally, Clinton would prefer the tool that greases the operations of government, and allows the monetization of the debt accrued by her kind, to “be off-limits for U.S. presidents and presidential candidates. You should not be commenting on Fed actions when you are either running for president or you are president,” Mrs. Clinton fulminated at Trump.


Just as Hillary’s collectivist creed, “It Takes A Village,” complements Barack’s “You didn’t build it” motto—so do their economic policies jibe. Mrs. Clinton likely expects the Fed to keep interest rates low to help her make the case for the continuation of the Obama economy.

Back to Bill. Being something of a good old boy, Bill Clinton looked as if he was in purgatory at the Democratic National Convention, late June. Surrounded by shrill, power-crazed women and their domesticated men; gyno-centric soft pop blaring from the speakers—Mr. Clinton looked as if he’d rather be hanging out with … Donald Trump.

  1. This “leftist” supports Trump over the harpy because she is the obvious fascist, as exemplified by her claims that those who don’t support her are disloyal. The characterisation of Hillary as a “yankee” by that definition is good. The fact is, her know-it-all entitlement is singularly unattractive and does not fit with those who used to vote Democratic. This election will be a test of character for how far people will go to support a label. Her candidacy represents war crimes, neoliberalism and fascism and she does not have the charisma to pull it off either.

    I agree with you, but wonder, am I one of the half of us in the “basket of deplorables.”

    Clinton: Half of Trump’s supporters fit in ‘basket of deplorables’
    Washington Post By Abby Phillip September 9

    Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton described half of the Americans supporting Donald Trump as a “basket of deplorables” made up of “racist, sexist, homophobic, xenophobic, Islamophobic” people.

    “You know, to just be grossly generalistic, you could put half of Trump’s supporters into what I call the ‘basket of deplorables’. Right?” Clinton said to applause and laughter from the crowd of supporters at an LGBT for Hillary fundraiser where Barbra Streisand performed. “The racist, sexist, homophobic, xenophobic, Islamaphobic — you name it.”

    “And unfortunately there are people like that. And he has lifted them up,” she added.

    Clinton said that it was unfortunate that Trump had given them a voice, citing “offensive mean-spirited rhetoric” on websites and Twitter.

    “Some of those folks — they are irredeemable, but thankfully they are not America,” she said.

    The Clinton coalition has nothing in common with each other but a visceral hatred of all things right of center.

    AND they don´t love or like her. Turn out will be the death of her, if Parkinson´s doesn´t get her first. I didn’t know coughing fits were symptomatic of that killer disease. That the media allows this charade is indicative of just exactly how much house cleaning is in order.

    That said – What do Catholic Latinos have in common with Muslims?

    What do Blacks have in common with any immigrants, considering they are fighting a 10 dog, 8 bone economy?

    Why would homosexuals rally around the rights of those who would have them caged at the deep end of their lap pools?

    There is NO sane reason why Americans should pay around 500 BILLION a year to the private banking families that own the FED.

    That money is basically a fee that is charged to Americans to borrow OUR OWN MONEY, which the FED creates out of thin air.

    But go down that road at your own peril, as Presidents Andy Jackson, Abe Lincoln and JFK found out.

  7. @CCZ

    These direct ad hominem attacks on American voters are something new are they not? I see this backfiring big time. I read this and my reaction is fuck Barbra Streisand. If she was helping Hillary demonize her political opponent I wouldn’t give it a second thought. Differing opinions make a horse race. But I’m not running for anything. Why is she demonizing me? Whoever thought it was a good idea to make enemies of straight white people made a big mistake. If identity politics is the only game town we will be the winners. We have the numbers. Hillary is the candidate of the ruling class. Trump only exists because they have overplayed their hand. Doubling down will double their losses.

    The nicest thing about this is that if you pluck a Filipino, a Mexican, or a Syrian off the street, they’ll probably vote against abortion, against homosexual “marriage,” against that wretched old hag of a candidate.

    But they won’t (at least, the latter two wouldn’t), because they know the old hag and people like her will give them free money at the expense of the working classes.
    The Filipinos that do emigrate to the US, on the other hand, tend to lean left and are largely of the middle class. Why they immigrate to America is obvious, it’s because they think America > Philippines. Why they vote to destroy that reason, I ascribe to the Catholic Church there leaning left and the fact that a lot end up in California and New York.

    Mr. Clinton looked as if he’d rather be hanging out with … Donald Trump.

    … but would the converse be the case?

    “The racist, sexist, homophobic, xenophobic, Islamaphobic — you name it.”

    Two rough synonyms, racist, xenophobic. Plus a couple of contradictions in terms, sexist, homophobic, Islamaphobic, as if Moslems are not the most hating and repressive of all in terms of the former two. Sure, many of them are rabid fans of homosexual sex, but it has to be secret.

    Also sure, the US-Saudi axis and the Saudi Madrassas are destroying what really were more moderate forms of Islam in many places, for example, Malay women in most of Indonesia and Malaysia never used to wear hijabs. They still played nasty games, nasty talk about non-Moslems, nothing like now.

    As are Israeli interventions and the US as Israel’s cat’s paw in the vicinity of Israel.

    ‘you name it.’: a very dull catch-all, WTF is it supposed to mean?

    Sure, Hillary is a mendacious idiot.

    I’ve met people who’ve said they support her for president because she’s a female and that she has ‘experience’. That’s it, the sum total of their political thinking. I would say that puts them in the category of being deplorable. She has a talent for ruining things and that’s what her ‘experience’ consists of. There is something wrong with this country when a crooked mediocrity like her is considered a serious possibility for the highest office in the country. Her VP pick needs to be more carefully scrutinized now that it seems likely that were she to be elected she would become incapacitated in office. Sort of like when FDR was known by insiders to be a dying man who wouldn’t last long but they still ran him but switched the VP to Truman.

    “…Israel today is in the process of colonizing the United States, which is vital to its global projection and exercise of power. The steps Israel is taking are visible to all … and yet it is remarkably difficult to connect the dots while such a takeover is in process. Colonization does not mean total control of everything. It means total control of what matters.”
    “Has Israel Effectively Colonized the United States?”

    Here comes the hysterical and bossy Clinton, a loyal servant to the state of Israel, and claims her right to differentiate the “true” Americans from the “untrue” Americans. The only criteria for Clinton definition of “trueness” is whether a given US citizen votes for her. So vulgar! She looks like a cockroach controlled by a parasitoid:

  16. This may be Ilana’s best column to date, which is saying a great deal indeed. I appreciated her favorable comments on Vladimir Putin. Let’s not forget that if hadn’t been for Putin the heroic Edward Snowden would have wound up tortured by the CIA and found hanged in his cell. I also liked the reference to Professor Clyde Wilson, who’s never ceased denouncing “the War of Northern Aggression,” a war whose main result was the creation of the consolidated state in Washington that now bestrides the world as the global hegemon. Ilana is right–anyone who votes for Hillary is either very foolish or, if they’re aware of what her election would mean, basically evil. Hillary as president would appoint two or three or more new Supreme Court Justices, gutting the First and Second Amendments. The Surveillance State would expand into the stratosphere, targeting everyone who might be vaguely viewed as “alt-right,” including all libertarians and most conservatives except pathetic cucks like Paul Ryan. Finally, in her arrogance and recklessness the Queen of Chaos is fully capable of pushing Russia to a nuclear confrontation. Thanks, Ilana, and more, please, and soon.

  20. While it is true that it takes a village idiot to vote for Hillary, it also takes a village idiot to vote for Trump, even more so. A contest between two camps of idiots deciding who will be the next King. The masses might not be very bright but those who matter, those who rule, are quite smart and in the end it will be them who will decide the outcome. In the end it will be them who will benefit. The masses do not count. They rarely do. As a matter of fact I am surprised that any American still believes in the election process or that it has any meaning. The candidate who is more willing to continue with the project of the world ruling class will get all the support necessary to win. One group of village idiots will be disappointed. It will be the one whose candidate comes to mind when one thinks about village idiots.

    The fact that US is trying to elect a woman for a president is a sign of desperation. It looks they are desperately looking for any signs of hope, where none is to be found. So now they are going through the motion of electing “firsts”.

    In the previous two elections they elected their first black president believing that the mere fact that he is black might bring some kind of hope. That turned out to be a pigment of their imagination (I apologize for the spelling – it was intentional). Now they might elect a woman president – again first – believing that this might bring some kind of change.

    I suspect that in keeping with this trend, further down the road they might elect the first donkey and the first elephant – just to match the mascots of the parties, before they realize that electing firsts doesn’t do absolutely anything and that if they really want change and hope something more radical needs to be done than electing firsts.

    * …like hunger, thirst… – What we like to eat and drink is largely a matter of what we’re given as children. This is a poor argument for hard wired sexuality.
    * Wires get crossed… – True but not always in the womb. There are people out there trying to cross the wires of children wherever they can which I find despicable.

    I thought a village idiot in this country is someone whose only source of information is Fox News. They are usually
    Poorly educated and think every other white person has the same worldview as Fox. You see, I belong to a social class where the very mention of Fox News will lead to social disgrace even though many of my friends are of a conservative disposition like I am. Once my other half caught me watching Fox and had a prolonged tantrum. Once she had calmed down, I politely asked- ‘what’s worse, infidelity or watching Fox News?’ Watching Fox News, came the prompt reply. But Illana who I presume is semi permanently glued to Fox News will not understand.

    I have a weird intuition that Trump is going to win mainly due to Hillary’s arrogance and the implied assumption in camp Hillary that the presidency is a done deal. She had a similar mindset in 2008. Who on earth is going to vote for a black man? Well they did and did it again- God bless the open minded American people.

    I have a feeling that on the morning after the Election Day millions of Americans will wake up and having realised what has occurred, utter the immortal words- ‘That Motherfucker!’
    In all this gloom and doom I see an opportunity. I am going to bet against two key Dow Industrial shares on the eve of the election because I have a feeling key US shares will initially collapse as a reaction to a Trump presidency ( you see, I am a short seller). Heck, before armadeggon, I might as well make a killing.

    Your handle is anonymous (anon) – what is your problem? Upset with the visuals showing a parasitoid using a hapless host? Well, then you need to consider this: “General Wesley Clark: Wars Were Planned – Seven Countries In Five Years:”
    and this: ““Greater Israel”: The Zionist Plan for the Middle East. The Infamous “Oded Yinon Plan“. Introduction by Michel Chossudovsky:”
    and this: “Israeli Intel Chief: We Don’t Want ISIS Defeated in Syria. Says ISIS Faces Difficulty, Loss Would Put Israel in ‘Hard Position’”

    I thought a village idiot in this country is someone whose only source of information is Fox News. They are usually Poorly educated and think every other white person has the same worldview as Fox.

    “Liberals” who watch CNN, PBS, etc. are every bit as poorly educated. The big difference is they are more heavily indoctrinated by the Globalists (p/k/a Communists) and their agents since “education” is a euphemism for indoctrination. Indeed, the entire “traditional” educational system is based on the science of brainwashing.

    Incidentally, this phenomenon explains the “generation gap”. The “Generation gap” refers to the differences in culture and ideology between how a child would grow up if raised by his parents, and how he grows up raised by the Globalist indoctrination centers.

    You see, I belong to a social class where the very mention of Fox News will lead to social disgrace even though many of my friends are of a conservative disposition like I am.

    Fox is a despicable news network run by the Globalist Zionist Murdoch. What I always thing about when thinking about Fox is the Iraq War: their glamorization of the weapons of death and destruction, and their gleeful clamoring of stories of “rivers of blood” and “corpses piled thigh deep” – when all these conscripted victims of this illegal war, of these war crimes, was doing is being patriotic and defending their country from an unlawful invasion (which has utterly destroyed said country).

    No, Fox is evil incarnate. Murdock is evil incarnate. Behind the scenes, Murdoch and Hillary are good friends, for they are birds of a feather – Arrogant Elitist Zionist Globalist Dishonest Corrupt War-Criminals.
