Try Sincerity for a Change

1,212 words

Sunday afternoon, I had a rather exhausting conversation with a friend who is supporting Hillary Clinton. She was well-versed in Hillary’s various policy proposals, but I did not want to argue those points, simply because Hillary’s real problem is not what she proposes but the fact that she can’t be trusted at all. So I focused on the issue of Hillary’s sincerity vs. Trump’s. I had some success, so I think it is worthwhile to summarize the gist of my arguments here. 

First, I stressed that I don’t oppose Hillary simply because I think her political philosophy is false and destructive. Indeed, I would like her more if she sincerely believed in bad ideas. I also don’t oppose her because I disagree with all of her policy proposals. Indeed, some of them actually sound good. No, I oppose Hillary because she’s insincere. She has no principles at all, just a lust for power, for which she will say and do anything, including cheating, killing, and mouthing liberal principles.

How do we know that Hillary Clinton is not pro-liberal, pro-feminist, and pro-gay? Aside from the fact that she remains married to a rapist, she is in the pockets of Gulf Arab theocracies like Saudi Arabia and Qatar, which oppress and behead their own people and bankroll the medieval barbarism of ISIS, which rapes schoolgirls en masse and machine-guns schoolboys in ditches, destroys ancient monuments, and murders people in a thousand savage ways, from beheading to stoning to crucifixion to burning alive to throwing homosexuals off buildings.

How do we know that Hillary Clinton is not for white working people? It is not just that she disdains them as “rednecks” and racists, and treats employees and working people like dirt. She also supports trade policies that destroy their jobs and communities — or what remains of them after decades of non-white immigration and racial integration, which Hillary also supports.

How do we know that Hillary Clinton is not for the working class and middle class of any race? She is not for making the rich pay their “fair share,” because she is wholly owned by the rich, who have paid for her campaign and who dictate the job-killing, global plantation economic policies she supports.

We know that Hillary is not for blacks — or “niggers,” as she calls them — or Hispanics either, except as they can be used as biological and economic weapons to destroy white communities and lower white wages, to the benefit of our Jewish and plutocratic elite.

The only thing Hillary Clinton is for is herself — for increasing her wealth and power. To that end, she has determined US policies not based on American interests, or imagined “global interests,” but simply on who can pay her more. She kept a private email server — and then wiped it when it was discovered by government oversight — because she was engaged in massive corruption. She stole the nomination from Bernie Sanders and will steal the election from Donald Trump if we allow her. She lies about her crimes, her policies, and her health because she is not going to be stopped by mere truths. She is literally courting nuclear war with Russia not just to do the bidding of Israel and the Gulf states in Syria, but merely to deflect attention from her own crimes.

There’s a word for people who are willing to do anything to gain wealth and power and to avoid responsibility, even by destroying others. That word is evil. Hillary Clinton is evil. But she’s fine with that. She keeps soldiering on because she’s a sociopath. She’s not all there. She lacks a conscience. She can look you in the eye, smile her fake smile, address you by name, and tell you any lie necessary to get what she wants. But millions of fools are counting on the fanciful notion that although Hillary has lied to and ruined the lives of millions, surely she is being honest with them.

Nobody as evil as Hillary has any business in public office, not even as dog-catcher much less President of the United States. The fact that the Democratic Party nominated such a corrupt and evil candidate should be enough to completely destroy its credibility.

But it’s either Trump or Hillary. The best reason to vote for Trump is that he is not Hillary, and he is the only candidate capable of stopping Hillary. We’d be better off electing a blue dog as president than Hillary Clinton, but fortunately Donald Trump is much better than a blue dog.

I like Trump’s policies, but even if you don’t like them, you have to credit Trump for something that Hillary lacks: sincerity. If Trump merely wanted to become president, he would have run as a slightly less cucky centrist than Jeb Bush. He would not have talked about a border wall, mass deportations, a ban on Muslim immigrants, protectionism, or an America First foreign policy. Instead, he would have colored well within the Republican establishment lines and counted on his money, celebrity, and personality to give him the winning margin.

Trump didn’t do that, because he believes what he is saying and is willing to pay the price and shoulder the burden of running on an anti-establishment platform, even though he has had to wage a two front war on both liberal Democrats and Republican cuckservatives. You may not like Trump or his policies, but he’s both principled and sincere.

Hillary might say things you want, but she’s not sincere, and she will only follow through on them if they happen to align with her corrupt calculations. And you don’t have as much money as George Soros, Haim Saban, the Saudis, or Qatar, do you?

But at least as far as Donald Trump is concerned, you do have one advantage. You are an American citizen, not a foreigner. And Trump is an American nationalist, an America-firster. His mission is to represent the real interests of all Americans, not just the plutocratic elites, domestic and foreign, that own Hillary Clinton. That includes your interests. Donald Trump wants to represent your interests. Hillary Clinton just wants to diddle you out of your vote.

But what if you disagree with Trump about what your interests are? Even there, you have an advantage: Trump is a deal-maker. He prides himself on making mutually beneficial deals among parties with different interests and visions. He looks for common ground, and he looks for ways to compromise without betraying fundamental interests. This means that Trump will govern as a centrist, a reconciler, and a peace-maker.

But why would Trump make a deal with you, a die-hard liberal? Simply because you are an American citizen. It’s your birthright to be taken seriously — to be protected and privileged — by your own government. That birthright means nothing to Hillary Clinton, who would appeal to universal principles to justify betraying you, but who would make up her mind based on cold calculations of self-interest, including payments of cold hard cash.

But even if you are a liberal, your birthright as an American means something to Donald Trump. Try it on for size. It might start meaning something to you too.

Donald Trump promises to bring many changes to American politics, but the most fundamental one is sincerity.

    So, what are the real interests of all Americans? What do they share in common as Americans?

    Problem number one is that Hillary voters have bought into progressivism and globalism hook line and sinker. You can’t fix stupid. Might as well try to keep the tide from coming in. Problem number two is gender. Quite simply, Women shouldn’t be allowed to vote in Federal or State elections. Women spend their entire lives living in the safety provided by men. They vote for policies they never have to fight to defend and in many cases don’t pay for. One of the upsides of society falling apart is both progressives and women will be served a heaping plate of reality.

    I saw her laugh with Biden a few years ago on a TV-clip about bombing Iran. Who would laugh about such a thing?
    And she switched upruptly from a pro-Palestinian position in 1999 to a pro-Jewish stance in order to receive Jewish support for her Senate campaign.
    This woman has no principles and can laugh about destruction and death.
    Greg Johnson adds a lot of further failures, and they all come to the same main conclusion: Insincerity.

      That was not Joe Biden but former Secretary of State James Baker. For the video, search in YouTube : “Hillary Clinton and James Baker laughs about possible war with Iran”. This woman is not only unprincipled but definitely evil.

        Franklin Ryckaert:
        Thank you for this correction. I was citing from memory and it has been a while since I saw this short clip. This hearty laugh of Clinton and Baker is stuck in my mind and emerges each time I am thinking of Hillary Clinton. To laugh about death and destruction even of one’s enemies is not normal and in addition, Iran is not an enemy of America,but only a strategic whip-up tool of Israel. I did feel the touch of Evil when I saw that scene..

    Perhaps you hang around more principled liberals than I do, Greg. The self-professed libs I know irl have no principles. During a recent conversation discussing Hillary’s emails etc, my shitlib acquaintance said “I don’t care if they have her on tape taking a shit on the desk in the oval office. I’m still voting for her.”

    These people get their news from John Oliver, Bill Maher, etc. To be a member of the blue team signals status, education, wealth, do-gooderism, enlightened thinking regarding the sexes and race. Red team members are poor, work with their hands (tsktsk), low IQ, racist, bad teeth, science deniers, who when not trying to fuck their sisters or hang some naggers are bent on grabbing poor Mother Earth’s pussy and raping it. No joke. That’s literally what many of them believe because the TV said it’s true. Regardless of the outcome of the election, IDK where we go from here. I don’t believe we have the time for a reverse Fabian march through the institutions.

    I just want a divorce from them, their diversity pets, and their anti-White media masters.

      Bill Maher said he didn’t care if they found JonBenet Ramseys body in Hillarys basement, he would still vote for her. And then they wonder how a Hitler came to be.

        Will someone, please pull the plug on this creep’s show after the election? And don’t forget CNN Obama’s mouthpiece Fareed Zakaria! Deport him back to India and as well George Soros. I wonder where or who would take this day-go?

    So what do you say to the labor union members (private sector) who for decades are totally against ANY Republican? They bring up Right to Work, tax breaks for the wealthy, using non union labor, the Chinese made clothing, cutting social security, cutting pensions, etc. The are against any wealthy person on general principles. They are against any businessman. They don’t think Trump has ever given enough, or even any, charity. No hospital wings, cancer research funds, etc. Nothing like that.

      Hillary stands for job-destroying trade agreements and the global plantation economy as much as any anti-union Republican does. She’s not sincere. Trump believes in economic nationalism and protectionism. He is the only pro-worker candidate on the ballot. And he is sincere. The people you are describing, however, might be too dumb to convince if they have not seen through the Democrats at this point.

      Just put it to them truthfully the way Trump did to the blacks: “What have you got to lose?”

    Have the same situation over and over again. So thanks for sharing your thoughts!
    Hillary is used to appeal to the minorities she had previously abused. There will be no good if she is a leader . A woman who is a warmonger, what could be worse?!
