Mrs. Clinton & The Amazing Amnesia Of Delusional Democrats

January 12, 2020   |   by James G. Dalton

Back in 2014, Charles Barkley told James Harden during a Foot Locker commercial obviously inspired by Democrats in the Swamp that “all the greats have short memories.” He didn’t know anything about any of the unfortunate events Harden mentioned, just that all the greats have short memories, and even passed to Scottie Pippen for confirmation. “I sure do,” Pippen assured Harden. “And I’m the greatest Chicago Bull of all time.” “And that’s how it’s done,” Barkley replied.

That’s how it’s done in the Swamp, too. But in politics, it isn’t only “the greats” who suffer this amazing case of mass amnesia.

Iran: What Would Hillary Do?

As tensions rise between the United States and Iran, the delusional Democrats who were “with her” back in 2016 are coming out of the social media woodwork to say, “I told you so.” Trump’s starting a war with Iran – never mind the fact that his aggressive moves against the Middle Eastern nation have all come after attacks by Iran or Iran-backed groups. If a country attacks the United States, what is the president supposed to do, just sit back and let Americans die like Obama and Clinton did in Libya?

But never mind for a moment whether Trump should take action. Let’s focus on the Cult of Clinton and their claims that Madam President would have done better. Short memories: All the greats have them. In 2008, back when then-Senator Clinton wanted to be president the first time, she made it clear that, if she won, any Iranian attacks on Israel meant war with the U.S.

To be fair to Mrs. Clinton, she was talking about Iran attacking Israel, not the United States. So, perhaps she wouldn’t have cared as much had the lives lost been American. She certainly didn’t balk as secretary of state when Obama allowed Iranian aggression to go unpunished. And while we’re on the subject of short memories, how about that love for Israel back in ’08?

The Majority Wants A Wall – Every Majority

Iran and war aren’t the only issues on which Democrats appear to be suffering from amnesia. In 2016, Donald Trump said we need a wall between the United States and Mexico. Why? Well, obviously Trump the Terrible hates anyone who isn’t white. What an evil, sick man. But what about just ten years earlier, when Hillary Clinton, Barack Obama, and Chuck Schumer – all senators at the time – voted for the Secure Fence Act. Schumer defended this – and condemned such verbal trickery as calling illegal immigrants “undocumented workers” – as recently as 2009. It seems every majority wants a wall – or at least a really good fence. It’s only politically expedient for Democrats to oppose border security when their guy isn’t in the White House.

Intellectual Dishonesty And Dredging Up The Past

But all that happened more than a decade ago, you might say. It’s old news. And you would be right; it is. But that doesn’t mean it’s no longer relevant. Sure, some people do change their perspectives over time. But it’s a little suspicious that Democrats only changed their minds regarding the issues on which Donald Trump decided to agree with them.

Hillary Clinton

A phrase that pops up in the conversation from time to time when conservatives bring up these old videos is “intellectually dishonest.”  As if anyone were trying to pass off videos of a 2009 Chuck Schumer calling for tougher border security or a 2008 Hillary Clinton threatening war with Iran as recent. The intellectual dishonesty is in flip-flopping on the issues to back whatever stance seems most likely to win an election.

It’s the delusional Democrats who are being intellectually dishonest this time – or just suffering from the short memories of the greats – when they tweet #IVotedForHillary. War with Iran would have been just as likely with President Clinton in 2016 as it is now that we have President Trump – and it would have likely happened even sooner had we elected President Clinton in 2008.

    The Convention of States is proposing, among other things, limited terms for Congress. Last I heard, they had thirty-three states on board, but they need at least thirty-five states to present the changes that we want to Congress. However, some naysayers argue that Congress will bury it, and the changes will never be made. The more states who sign on, the more difficult it will be to ignore. So, please, see if your states are signed on. If not, see what you can do to get that rectified. We wouldn’t have had the political swamp and filthy rich politicians who ignore us if we’d had term limits a long time ago.

    Mary,s idea has merit and I like the thought. On the other hand this is why the democrats are so despicable and going to self destuct , with their hypocrisy and political pandering. Say goodbye in 2020 to the dmocrap house majority.

    Delusional liars !!! That about sums it up ! They change their tune every single time it suits them. They have absolutely no convictions of their beliefs. They prefer to say and do whatever gains them power. They care nothing for the people of the United States who have worked and fought and died for the freedoms we hold dear. All they have is hatred for the man who upset their apple cart and exposed them for what they are . Enemies of the Republic !!!

      I know very good and nice common people that are Democrats. My oldest daughter is one of THEM. They ARE Dems for “different” reasons. Good reasons in some cases, but mislead reasons in other issues. I just feel sorry for them. I think they focus on the parts rather than the whole. They miss the “Big Picture” and the “Total Probable Outcome”. Example: Cake batter is a “good” thing in it self when baked makes a tasty treat. Spaghetti sauce also is “good” in itself when added to pasta. But if added as an ingredient to cake batter, “Disastrous and Useless” ruining the “Good”. They seem to forget “history” and why fallen nations are not what they used to be.
