Secretary of State Clinton Backs El Jefe

We were recently treated to a jokey Barack Obama in Texas, telling us our borders are secure, he's the immigration president, and dumb Republicans want to install unnecessary border moats filled with alligators. In all the glow of the words coming from the mouth of The Anointed One, perhaps you missed Hillary Clinton's follow-up speech at the forty-first Washington Conference on the Americas.

Clinton luxuriated in the wonderful interdependence between Latin America and the United States. Particularly when it comes to immigration. She loves it. She also forgot to mention any distinction between legal and illegal immigration. She said that immigration from Mexico particularly "makes some people nervous." Uh, not really. Massive illegal immigration makes a lot of us considerably more than nervous. She further exulted that "the United States is blessed to have one of the largest Spanish-speaking populations in the world." I'd rather we had the largest Hispanic population that speaks fluent English.

She explained how she is a huge fan of Mexican President Calderon (you know, the guy who addressed Congress and denounced immigration-related legislation in several border states). She mused over Calderon's honesty about the unfortunate need for Mexican citizens to swim or hike across the American border. After all, Calderon has said "emigration from my country will continue as long as Mexico cannot offer its people the job opportunities they deserve." And who's fault is that, you two? Now get your hand out of my wallet, Senor Presidente.

She further spoke of our "joint problem of narcoterrorism." Well, how does that justify erasing the American border? We have the junkie problem. They have the narcoterrorists. The real problem is that the Obama administration is willing to allow the narcoterrorists to form up on our side of the border. Then we'll have both problems. The Mexican police have done next-to-nothing to halt the murder and mayhem in Mexico, and are often directly involved in those activities themselves. Calderon can't even control his own law enforcement agencies. American undercover narcotics agents, supposedly working in cooperation with the Mexican police, are frequently outed or attacked by the very Mexican authorities they are working with.

Let's move on. We also share the problem of climate change, says Hillary. But it's so impressive that Mexico has taken such a strong position on the issue. She becomes rhapsodic, in fact. Says the Secretary: "We are building bilateral and multilateral (she almost forgot the other Latin Americans) partnerships to help us address the strategic challenges we face."

"Pathways to Prosperity and the Energy and Climate Partnership of the Americas are promoting inclusive growth and sustainable energy security." I have no idea what that means, but if it's "security," it must be good. Undaunted, she went on to say: "It was a Mexican proposal for the Green Fund that will serve as the vehicle for assisting developing countries in meeting their climate needs." Yep--their needs, our green. When Hillary says "green initiative," she means greenbacks being spent on other countries who are also crazy enough to think that "climate change" has nothing to do with the sun or terrestrial internal thermodynamics. If you believe in anthropogenic global warming and Mexico's contribution to stop it, you might want to take a look at a Mexican delivery truck spewing out more noxious greenhouse gas fumes in a day than your entire family will produce in a year.

My favorite part of her speech relates to our shared values. Particularly where it comes to free elections, a republican form of government, the rule of law, and private enterprise. Says the Hill: "Now, Latin America has undergone a stunning transformation over the past few decades." Like Venezuela, I suppose. Never one to allow one lie to go untold or one fact to go undistorted, Clinton spoke specifically about Honduras. "Now, in Honduras, we have seen how effective that kind of common approach can be. And now that the obstacles to former President Zelaya's return to Honduras have been removed, I am confident that we will soon welcome Honduras back as a full member of the inter-American system. That is a step that is long overdue." WTF?

Hillary is still fighting the fight to put a disgraced wannabe dictator back in power in Honduras. The Obama administration has quite literally gotten everything wrong about Zelaya's attempted Hugo Chavez-style takeover of a constitutional republic. The Obamists don't understand our own Constitution, but they're more than willing to tell Hondurans what their constitution means. A year and a half after it became apparent that Zelaya had no intention of following his own nation's laws, the Obama administration is still saying and doing all the wrong things.

They've attempted bribery and threats to get the duly-elected government of Honduras to let Zelaya back in. The "removed obstacles" to Zelaya's return were the result of money and pressure applied by leftist US Ambassador to Honduras, Hugo Llorens. Since Zelaya's ouster, Llorens and the State Department have lavished at least $100 million dollars on Honduras, each "gift" specifically containing a provision that the strictures against Zelaya be relaxed. Meanwhile, Llorens and Clinton have used multiple tricks to isolate Honduras from trade and mutual security agreements with other Latin American nations until the Honduran government caves in and lets Zelaya back into Honduras without legal charges pending against him.

And you thought Obama was the master of sound and fury signifying nothing. Hillary makes him look like an amateur, and she's an even-more facile liar. For fully fleshed-out discussions of the Zelaya/Honduras fiasco, check our Index over on the right side of the cover page, and click on "Honduras."

LawHawk,

If someone bombs Mexico, will anyone notice?

Most of what is left there now are too scared to do anything, too stupid to move or part of the problem.

T-Rav said...

She actually said that about Honduras? What a bunch of #@%$ing idiots we have running our government. Our "leaders" are supporting authoritarian socialists, and no one is making a peep about it. Gag me.

LawHawkRFD said...

Joel: That seems to sum it up pretty well.

LawHawkRFD said...

T-Rav: Yeah, she actually said that. She took time out from lying about Argentina and the Falklands and insulting our British allies to spend a little time on encouraging the constitution-shredders in Honduras. She's toned down the favorable rhetoric about Brazil lately, since the socialist da Silva has been demonstrating a better understanding of capitalism than Obama.

T-Rav said...

LawHawk, I can't even comprehend what would go into such a statement as that. Combined with the crap about Mexico, the only explanation I can think of is Obama, Hillary et al. actually do believe the mindless drivel being spouted at the universities and in the media nowadays, that everything is the fault of evil white capitalists, so we should obviously back non-white socialists/communists. That's the only thing I can think of. Referring back to the morning thread, it only shows that whoever gets the GOP nomination, unless it's a total nutjob, we have to rally around them.

By the way, did you guys get my email with the review?

LawHawkRFD said...

T-Rav: I have no doubt that both Obama and Clinton actually believe the crap they're spouting. Elitists like them have no problem finding anything and everything to be superior to America and our republican form of government. Progressivism is nothing more than Euro-socialism and social engineering with a slight American twist. The white oppression multiculturalism phase is pure American academia.

We did get your review. I liked it a lot. Andrew is our film maven, so he'll be getting back to you before I do.

StanH said...

Hitlary is Barry’s soul mate, a fellow Alinskyite who believes the BS she was taught in the storm that was the ‘60s. Democrats (Marxist) did the same thing in the early ’80s with Daniel Ortega and Nicaragua. We had democrat (Marxist) congressmen going down and apologizing to Noriega about Reagan’s support of the Contra’s, well with Barry’s ascension, Noriega now has control of Nicaragua, that’s great, free and fair elections just ask Jimmy Carter. If Honduras can hold off the Marxist hordes for a bit longer, they’ll have a friend back in the White House in January 2012. Nothing surprises me with these idiots.

LawHawkRFD said...

Stan: I came to my senses, but I am perpetually amazed at how many of my fellow radicals just can't get out of their halcyon days from the 60s. As another fellow convert said, "we changed the world, all right--we really screwed it up."

Now, Stan, be absolutely honest with me. Is there a palace coup in the offing? I think our new Republican president will take office in January of 2013, unless there's something you're not telling me. LOL

rlaWTX said...

T-Rav said what I was coming into the Comments to say... and more eloquently!

some thought processes are so far beyond comprehension - and shame on me for not realizing that Honduras was still fighting this battle. with the USA!!!! sheesh.

and I like Stan's timeline... :)

as for the SecState - a coincidence that her acronym is SOS?

LawHawkRFD said...

rlaWTX: You can be forgiven for not knowing about the ongoing sabotage of Honduras by the Obama administration. I haven't seen a word about it in any MSM outlet, and it's only my obsession with the sleazy Llorens that kept me current. Still, even I was caught flat-footed by the Clinton speech. No subtlety at all. Just slam Honduras and praise all the autocrats. While they advance their agenda from the first column, who needs a fifth column?

LawHawkRFD said...

rlaWTX: PS: It's a good thing her title is Secretary of State rather than Presider of State. Otherwise, she'd be identified as the POS she really is.

T-Rav said...

Just to point out, apparently Biden has asked donors to "keep me in mind in 2016." With regard to Stan and LawHawk, who knows? Maybe there is some kind of coup being planned. I mean, come on--not even Biden could be THAT stupid...right?

rlaWTX said...

Biden-2016 - has he lost his pea-pickin' mind????????

LawHawkRFD said...

T-Rav: Maybe Biden needs to know that as a result of 2012, 2016 will be a non-starter for him anyway. Out of sight, out of mind. And he's out of his mind whatever year it is.

AndrewPrice said...

Hey, I've never worn that hat! That photo is faked! Grumble... grumble... grumble...


Biden for President? Is he high?

LawHawkRFD said...

Andrew: The picture is not faked. I got it direct from AP. Who could ever question the integrity of AP?

Go easy on ol' Joe. He's just high on life.

T-Rav said...

Andrew, are you telling me you didn't celebrate your birthday at a Mexican restaurant recently? I can't believe it.

AndrewPrice said...

It's a lot more than life that Joe is smoking. In fact, I'm pretty sure whatever he's smoking is entirely illegal.


T_Rav, Nope, wasn't me.... or my avatar!

LawHawkRFD said...

T_Rav: You can pick your friends, and you can pick your peas, but you shouldn't pick your friend's peas. Or something like that. Maybe it was noses.

LawHawkRFD said...

T_Rav: Andrew is a secret snob. He dined at a French restaurant with his pinky-finger raised. I think it was reported on AP. LOL

LawHawkRFD said...

Andrew: CAUTION You are maligning California's biggest cash crop. It's grown in the wet northern parts of the state where they have plenty of water. Biden and his friends killed the legal cash crops in central and southern California by shutting off the water to save the Delta smelt.

Kosh said...

So much for thinking she would have been a better president than Obama.

LawHawkRFD said...

Kosh: That is perfect. I hadn't even thought about all those people who thought she was cheated out of her chance to be the greatest president ever. LOL
