Democrat presidential candidate and federal law breaker Hillary Clinton collected six figures in 2013 for a speech she gave in San Diego to the Global Business Travelers Association in which she told the audience that terrorism was “not a threat to us as a nation.”
“[M]ake no mistake, as the recent travel alert underscores, we still face terrorism,” Clinton said in an August 7, 2013 speech. “It’s not a threat to us as a nation. It is not going to endanger our economy or our society, but it is a real threat. It is a danger to our citizens here at home, and as we tragically saw in Boston, and to those living, working, and traveling abroad.”
Mrs. Clinton took in $225,000 for the speech.
If that wasn’t enough, Clinton also gave a private speech in New York that same year. In that speech she pontificated that she did not believe Russia to be any real threat to the US.
“I last saw [Putin] in Vladivostok where I represented President Obama in September for the Asia Pacific economic community,” Clinton told Sanford C. Bernstein May 29, 2013. “I sat next to him. He’s an engaging and, you know, very interesting conversationalist. We talked about a lot of issues that were not the hot-button issues between us, you know, his view on missile defense, which we think is misplaced because, you know, we don’t believe that there will be a threat from Russia, but we think that both Russia and the United States are going to face threats from their perimeter, either from rogue states like Iran or from terrorist groups, that’s not the way he sees it.”
Again, she made another $225,000 for that speech.
Interestingly enough, while Clinton claimed terrorism was not a threat to the nation, it has been the tool to violate virtually every single one of the first ten Amendments to the Constitution. It has been used to push through the illegal and unconstitutional Patriot Act, as well as the indefinite detention provisions of the NDAA. Not only that, but we have seen an increase of Islamic terrorism since her speech.
Certainly, Hillary Clinton has no business anywhere near the Oval Office. I would say she has no business in public life, but should be charged with a plethora of crimes and justly punished, but even with Donald Trump claiming that he will appoint a special prosecutor to investigate Clinton should he win the White House, don’t think for one moment that anything will come of it.
