It is now weeks before our Republic (a word that our political class doesn’t seem to recognize) has a new President. The majority of fairly respectable polls (Monmouth, Rasmussen, etc.) show Hillary enjoying a comfortable lead.
There are some uncomfortable predictions that can be put forth regarding a Hillary Clinton Presidency.
One, the economy will never reach the four to six percent GDP growth that the nation needs to prosper and ensure the growth of the middle and working classes, raise wages organically and position the United States into the economic powerhouse inherent in its potential. Extreme tax and spend Keynesian policies along with massive new entitlement programs have never equated into robust GDP.
And two, a Hillary presidency will be the very model of a shadow presidency, void of any expected semblance of transparency. One would think it would be some task to “one-up” the Obama presidency regarding being opaque. Obama promised that his would be the “most transparent in history.” Eight years later, even the overt leftist Washington Post had to admit it is the “most secretive” ever.
He will be outdone if Hillary becomes President.
One feature of a shady administration is an assemblage of non-elected “czars” and “advisors” surrounding the president and infecting the West Wing with their oily fingerprints on every piece of policy. Valerie Jarrett and her cohorts have filled this role for Obama. Not one piece of legislation has been forwarded by the Obama Presidency without the inspection and validation of Valerie Jarrett.
Hillary has a gaggle of Jarrett’s ready to infect the West Wing. She has an assortment of progressive left-wing agitators ready to slither around the halls of the White House. David Brock from Media Matters, Sidney Blumenthal, John Podesta (the guy whose emails exposed her underbelly), Jim Messina (former Obama advisor and THE paragon of creepiness) and of course, her gal pal, Huma Abedin.
These lurks are backed by billionaires. They will not have to be “official” in any respect in a Hillary presidency. I cannot imagine any of them being part of her Cabinet. That would deflate their real power since as such; they would be under scrutiny by The Congress. Better to keep them “off the books.”
The think tanks that they currently are affiliated with certainly have had some access to vital information during the Obama administration; however, nothing will be secured from them during a Hillary administration.
Woe to her Cabinet and officials in the West Wing. These toads will be looking over their shoulders at every step. Not one policy or proposed legislation will escape their jurisdiction. An unprecedented leaking of closely held information from the opposition party will occur.
We all know that Hillary abhors transparency and flaunts her ability to dismiss any process that demands it. Sidling into the Oval Office, she will have the ability to nullify any adherence of accountability to the People.
