Hillary’s hypocrisy is ripe for the picking once again.
On September 14, 2012, White House occupant Barack Obama, US Jester of Court Joe Biden, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and Defense Secretary Leon Panetta joined the families of the four Americans who were murdered at the US Embassy Compound in Benghazi. The three politicians spoke with the families, giving their condolences and promising to keep them fully informed on how and why their sons had died.
A month later, Pat Smith, mother of Sean Smith, a computer specialist with the State Department slain in the attack, was still waiting to hear from Clinton, Biden, Obama or Panetta. None of the leaders that promised her they would keep her fully informed had bothered to talk to Pat Smith ever again. She still had no answers as to how her son died and everything being reported in the media only clouded the issue even more.
Hillary had the audacity to look a grieving mother in the eye and lie to her. In my book, that kind of lying is the ultimate in hypocrisy. But wait! There’s more!
In April, Hillary Clinton slammed CEOs and hedge fund managers, saying:
“There’s something wrong when CEOs make 300 times more than the typical worker. There’s something wrong when American workers keep getting more productive, as they have, and as I just saw a few minutes ago is very possible because of education and skills training, but that productivity is not matched in their paychecks.”
“And there’s something wrong when hedge fund managers pay lower tax rates than nurses or the truckers that I saw on I-80 as I was driving here over the last two days, and there’s something wrong when students and their families have to go deeply into debt to be able to get the education and skills they need in order to make the best of their own lives.”
Yet, recently, hedge fund manager Malcolm Wiener held a fund raiser event for Hillary’s campaign in his $29.7 million mansion.
Where were her criticisms of hedge fund managers then? She didn’t complain about Wiener’s paying a lower tax rate than truckers when she was raking in thousands and perhaps millions in donations from the Wieners and their friends.
Hillary’s hypocrisy also surfaces when she complains about CEOs making 300 times the pay than the typical worker. Hillary and Bill Clinton have demanded anywhere from $250,000 to $1 million for one speaking event. When I had my own creation ministry, I spoke publicly for whatever donations people were willing to make. I felt fortunate if I brought in $100 for any event.
I know other public speakers that have trouble making $500 to $5,000 for a speaking event. Even at $5,000 per event, the Clinton’s take at an event is 50 to 500 times what many other speakers receive. Isn’t this the epitome of throwing stones in a glass house or the pot calling the kettle black?
Hillary needs to heed the wisdom of Jesus Christ when He said:
“Judge not, that you be not judged. For with the judgment you pronounce you will be judged, and with the measure you use it will be measured to you. Why do you see the speck that is in your brother’s eye, but do not notice the log that is in your own eye? Or how can you say to your brother, ‘Let me take the speck out of your eye,’ when there is the log in your own eye? You hypocrite, first take the log out of your own eye, and then you will see clearly to take the speck out of your brother’s eye.” Matthew 7:1-5
