When I was a younger man, I remember when then-President Ronald Reagan got called on the carpet for arming freedom fighters in Nicaragua. Reagan armed men and women fighting to overthrow the communist government of Daniel Ortega. Oliver North took the fall for it. Partisan Democrats did their best to use the clandestine program to damage Reagan’s administration, despite his huge successes at bringing down the Soviet Union and communism.
Today, America under President Obama doesn’t arm anti-communist rebels. Instead, the United States has armed Islamic jihadists in Syria sending them weapons from Libya as far back as 2011. That occurred under Hillary Clinton’s term as Secretary of State.
Yes, that was a year before the Benghazi fiasco when Hillary and Obama left those four men to die at the American consulate. The very same president who has acted unilaterally to disarm the American populace while sending small arms and other materiel to Islamic radicals.
Why should that surprise us? This is the same administration that literally gave guns to Mexican drug cartels under Operation Fast and Furious. Hillary, of course, denied any knowledge of weapons shipments during her tenure as Secretary of State when she was questioned by the Senate under oath in 2013.
Fast forward to today: Julian Assange tells ‘Democracy Now!’ that he has leaked internal Democrat National Committee emails containing information on the weapons shipments to Syria.
So, those Hillary Clinton emails, they connect together with the cables that we have published of Hillary Clinton, creating a rich picture of how Hillary Clinton performs in office, but, more broadly, how the U.S. Department of State operates.
So, for example, the disastrous, absolutely disastrous intervention in Libya, the destruction of the Gaddafi government, which led to the occupation of ISIS of large segments of that country, weapons flows going over to Syria, being pushed by Hillary Clinton, into jihadists within Syria, including ISIS, that’s there in those emails.
There’s more than 1,700 emails in Hillary Clinton’s collection, that we have released, just about Libya alone.
Maybe those emails will jog Hillary’s memory. She certainly seems to have a hard time remembering key moments in her past.
The People of the Gun, however, have sharp memories. They tend to remember Benghazi and how Hillary has vowed to degrade or destroy their Second Amendment rights. And they tend to vote accordingly.
