Accuracy in Media

Why does Hillary Clinton continue lying and covering up her various activities, whether it is her pneumonia, or the fact that she regularly sent and received classified information on a private, unsecured server, or that she traded favors, influence and access as secretary of state for large payments to her husband or her family’s foundation? It is because if she told the truth, she would never be elected president, and would almost certainly end up behind bars.

When asked why she decided to keep secret the medical diagnosis she received on Friday, she told CNN’s Anderson Cooper on Monday night that “I just didn’t think it was going to be that big a deal. It’s just the kind of thing that if it happens to you and you’re a busy, active person, you keep moving forward.” If Hillary hadn’t been caught by a bystander’s cell-phone camera nearly collapsing as she was being helped into her limousine, we probably still wouldn’t know about her pneumonia. Her lack of transparency on this matter has forced the liberal media to acknowledge Hillary’s health issues, which have fueled much speculation about other possible ailments she may be hiding.

With the release of the notes on the FBI investigation into Mrs. Clinton’s handling of classified material, and the Bureau’s interview with her, it becomes more and more apparent that she is trying to run out the campaign clock without admitting to her many lies. When Hillary first explained the use of her private server, she said it was a matter of convenience, so that she could use just one device. But the FBI summary reveals that there were actually 13 mobile devices she used, plus several iPads. At least one, maybe two, of the phones were destroyed by a hammer.

CNN reports that Mrs. Clinton told the FBI she could not recall, or did not remember, at least 39 times during her interview. Alex Griswold, writing for Mediaite, gives more details into 40 examples of Mrs. Clinton’s unbelievable memory hole, based on what she told the FBI.

Apparently, according to Griswold, the FBI interview indicates that Mrs. Clinton “could not recall any briefing or training by State related to the retention of federal records or handling of classified information.” She also claimed that she didn’t remember what the “(C)” represented on many documents she handled, even though it is regularly used by the State Department to denote information classified at the confidential level. “Clinton stated that she did not know what the ‘(C)’ meant at the beginning of the paragraphs and speculated it was referencing paragraphs marked in alphabetical order,” states the FBI notes.

Yet Mrs. Clinton’s signature can be found on a classified information non-disclosure agreement that she signed upon taking the position of secretary of state. The agreement states, “Classified information is marked or unmarked classified information, including oral communication. I understand and accept that by being granted access to classified information, special confidence and trust shall be placed in me by the United States Government.” In other words, it doesn’t matter if there were headers or other markings. It’s her job to recognize classified information, in whatever form. Former prosecutor Andy McCarthy pointed out that this signed document indicates that Mrs. Clinton did, in fact, receive training on the use of classified information. “The simple fact, so familiar in Mrs. Clinton’s case, is that she’s lying,” writes McCarthy.

“Clinton did not recall receiving any emails she thought should not be on an unclassified system,” states the FBI file. This shows the light touch treatment that FBI Director James Comey’s department gave Hillary Clinton during the investigation. It was not enough to simply state publicly to the nation that Mrs. Clinton was “extremely careless” with classified information—an indictment was clearly warranted. And it seems suspicious that the FBI interviewed Mrs. Clinton last, not first—and only about 72 hours before announcing the FBI’s decision not to indict. The fix was clearly in.

Breitbart News investigated potential conflicts of interest between Comey and the Clintons, and found some very intriguing connections. For example, they report that Comey made more than $6 million in compensation from Lockheed Martin during the last year he worked for them, which was 2010. That is the year that Lockheed Martin became a Clinton Foundation donor, and also “won 17 approvals for private contracts from the Hillary Clinton State Department.” There were other such situations that qualified as, at the very least, the appearance of conflicts of interest.

Comey’s brother, Peter, was a senior director for DLA Piper, “the firm that performed the independent audit of the Clinton Foundation in November during Clinton-World’s first big push to put the email scandal behind them.”

Comey, a deputy attorney general for two years during the George W. Bush administration who was appointed FBI Director by President Obama in 2013, had not disclosed these personal or professional relationships when he announced that Mrs. Clinton should not be prosecuted for her mishandling of classified materials.

The Democrats, and the media, are asking citizens to accept, on blind faith, the many lies of Hillary Clinton—including the gigantic cover-up that is the Benghazi scandal. Voters are supposed to accept Hillary’s lie that she didn’t send or receive classified information with headers or markings, and that she only deleted her emails related to yoga or her personal life. As McCarthy points out, “A great deal of classified information is not marked at all.”

The latter lie—that she had turned over all of her work related emails—has been blown apart by the news that the FBI has handed over 14,900 Hillary Clinton emails that it salvaged during its investigation into Hillary’s server. “Actually, the FBI recovered tens of thousands,” said Judicial Watch’s Tom Fitton in an interview with The Wall Street Journal. “This first batch of 14,900 that we’ll be getting in the next couple of weeks is only one disc of seven cds full of emails. There are thousands still out there. We’re going to get every single one of them, I assure you.” He said that the 14,900 deal directly with Mrs. Clinton.

It is impossible to know what information these many emails contain until they are released, but until then the existence of Clinton emails that may have been work-related yet deleted calls into question Mrs. Clinton’s honesty and integrity.

Mrs. Clinton and her faithful media supporters are working together to cover up the malfeasance of Hillary Clinton and downplay her many lies. It is difficult and frustrating for them at times. Despite the media’s complicity in covering for Hillary, the truth continues to shine through.

    Why Hillary continues to lie?

    Is this a rhetorical question?

    Because she’s a liar. That’s what liars do.

  • Jack Parsons

    It is always her first instinct to lie, regardless of topic. Call it a knee jerk reaction.

  • IronChefSandwiches

    Why do Aronoff and “Accuracy” in Media continue to lie about Hilary Clinton? Why do right wing idiots refuse to accept reality and finally admit that they have no evidence to support 99% of their ridiculous claims? Why do they believe so many things that don’t even make any sense?

    Because they are morons. Because they are racists. Because they are bigots. Because they are bad people who run to the right wing media to be told that their heinous beliefs are A-OK. Because they prefer to live in a fantasy land where all their fears and prejudices are justified. These are the top 5 reasons and most “conservative” fall into more than one.

    Luckily, you’re the minority and the majority is tired of you. You’ve already lost five of the last six presidential elections (popular vote) and it’s about to be six of the last seven. You are in imminent danger of losing the Senate and would probably lose the House if you hadn’t gerrymandered it to death. This trend will continue until you pull your heads out of your butts and return to the real world.

  • Austinniceguy

    There are natural born killers and there are natural born liars, she happens to be both. Oh, and she’s a total POS.

  • freethinker

    After so many decades of lies, Clinton no longer knows what the truth is. Her supporters are conditioned to accept whatever she says at face value regardless any evidence that contradicts her. Then they will berate and insult anyone who calls her a liar.

    She lies out of habit, out of obvious lack of any moral compass, out of expediency, and most of all out of simple recognition that the sheer volume of her lying lends itself to such enormous backlash that by its very weight and mass, dissent against her lying can be taken as a whole and dismissed in a stroke with those two magic words: “conspiracy theory.”

    The entire Clinton formula, hers and her husband’s, has long been that a continual stream of naked and demonstrable untruths actually overwhelms the public’s capacity to process or believe that anyone could be so staggeringly dishonest. We want by our very natures to see some good or redemptive qualities in people as much as we can manage, such that there is a kind of auto-correct we deploy in the face of such intensive volumes of lying, and we supply the missing element of trust ourselves so as not to have to look into the face of pure, cynical, calculating, shark-eyed evil.

    They tell untruths so much, and so consistently, that even anything provably true in the mix sounds strategic rather than ethical, and even seeing that we want to explain it away so as not to believe that this very society and way of life we all love and depend on could actually produce these kinds of opportunists whom we know in our hearts are laughing in our faces.

    And of course on a less mystical level is the plain fact that no matter what this woman says, does or gets caught red-handed at, there is an entire feminist coterie of pundits and scholars and bloggers who will auto-deploy in her defense with cries of “sexism” if we in our allegiance to this nonexistent “patriarchy” are so bigoted as to actually hold The First Woman President accountable for anything at all.

    Such malign scrutinies as to expect her to tell the truth under oath or to be honest about medical mishaps observed around the world in real-time, are re-cast as this massive right-wing “conspiracy theory” used only to stop there ever being a woman in that office by any means necessary.

    Hilary’s own feminist credentials are thin to nonexistent, in terms of advances made by her in women’s behalf, but no matter: her sex itself is all that feminism asks of her, and having seen her come this far, will repay her very existence as a woman with whatever defenses from her own actions are required for her to finally fill in that token box on their list of female accomplishments.

    Bimbo Billy Arkansas said the old lady had the flu.

  • naro wampanoag

    She seems to have a seizure disorder with many petit mal seizure, and a few grand mal. She developed tricks to distract her audience when she has the petit mal seizure as she admitted herself. (She admitted that she has weird feeling sometimes and learned to recognize them and deal with them.) She or her doctors will never admit that she has seizures, and she may get one at any time. Look for unusual head movement or sudden laughter or even feigned cough to distract her audience, of course grand mal seizure cannot be hidden from view-like near the van.
    An hour after seizures a person can appear normal and smiling-not so with pneumonia and dehydration.

    Why won’t Mr. Trump release his tax returns? What is he hiding?

  • davandbar

    Who knows, but it doesn’t appear to be illegal (which Hillary’s lies seem to be covering); and as a private citizen, his tax return does not affect national security and certainly is not on the same level of Hillary’s pathological lying tendencies. How can the two even be compared?

  • KansasGirl

    The worm turns.

  • backpackwayne

    Ironic this site calls itself “Accuracy in Media.” – Nothing could be further from the truth.

  • Gary Miller

    Because every Presidential candidate in the modern era has released their tax returns – except Mr. Trump. (I’m afraid he’s not a private citizen. He’s a Presidential candidate.) He needs to have them hidden. Why do you suppose that is?

  • Steven Barrett

    She might as well lie. If she was asked if Jesus was the Son of Mary and the Holy Spirit, there’d be a howl n’ yell from the folks who’d be bangin’ their secular King James bibles saying “What about Joseph!?”

    And don’t be surprised if another wise man in the same mixed presser audience yells out, “And I suppose you don’t have a Santa in yer family’s manger scene, too!”

  • Steven Barrett

    Maybe Donald Duckster Jr. is right after all and the sucker’s thousands of pages thick, all done on purpose for the same reason he’s telling us not to bother because it’d be too ponderous, too detailed, too … full of gawdknowsordoesn’twannaknowwhat in the damn thing. That Newsweek article has The Donald’s little Ducksters really afraid for all the tangled webs that might be exposed when put up to a single flashlight. And this is the family that a presidential nominee wants to entrust his empire to in a “blind trust.”
    And who should the family trust its overseas jewels to in the event of a sudden demise of Mr. and Mrs. Donald and the little Ducksters? Hmmm, there’s a guy over in Moscow. Very influential. Used to run the KGB’s “branch office” in Dresden, East Germany.

    They have also released their college transcripts but I’m sure you had no problem with Obama not doing this, Keep grasping at straws.

  • missieb2000

    Thank God for alt right media sources.

  • The reason she lies is because she has the media in her corner. There is not much of a media that is not tainted for the citizens of this country. They the main street media have spouses or relatives that work for the democrat party and they should have a promo stating that because the news is bias and not really news for the citizens of this country. POPAGANDA THAT IS WHAT THE MAIN STREET MEDIA PUTS OUT FOR THE DEMOCRATS. They should be blamed for the mess we are in. Cronkite started it and it has gotten worse each year. Pretty soon there will not be a media for the citizens of this country.

    A saying that resonated for years, and still does in California, “Ca, ca, can we just all ge, get along?”. Statement made by Rodney King the druggy criminal defying the law.
    The new saying’s, ” What difference at this point does it make?” Made by Hitlery Clinton the criminal murderer of four in Benghazi, once again defying the law.
    Rodney King finally got his deserved justice and I pray both Clinton’s will get their deserved justice one day, and soon.

  • Steven Barrett

    You’re thanking Him for this? For your sake on your Dies Irae, you’d better hope St. Peter and God are having a good day before they read about your forthcoming arrival from the “proverbial Funny Pages” in whatever “alt right media source” you rely on the most.

    Great argument.

    How cool to be God’s spokesman. Does He know yet?

    You are the one who needs to return to the real world and pull your head out of that deep, dark, dank place!

    And quit accepting Sorros’s money for lying!

    Or maybe you want to go to the same place she will be going, shortly!

  • Steven Barrett

    You don’t need to thank God for “alt right media sources” when you have Mike Pence, who has taken it upon himself to shed the vice in the title “Vice President” because he doesn’t like the four letter V-word. This is what we get with scriptural literalists, or blinder people. Hell, Missie, lots of far more qualified and intelligent men who have held the job described it more accurately using more colorful terms than to say the word “vice” doesn’t rub well with one’s theological views or perhaps to be more precise with concerns to lots of evangelical pols today, their image. But God’s alternative media source even managed to kiss the Godfather of Alt Right Stephen Bannon’s ring by saying Dick Cheney was his “role model.”

    Why does Hillary continue to lie?
    Because she has an entire infrastructure that, by their enabling, encourages her to lie.
