Last night’s final presidential debate between Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump has given social media plenty to talk about this morning as many fact-checkers and political pundits get to work, dissecting every comment made. However, there were at least 3 times Hillary proved she was a forked-tongue demon, and you didn’t have to be an expert to pick up on it as many “average” Joes caught onto it right away.
1. We must stop gun-toting toddlers and save the refugee children while giving a mother the right to kill her child up until the day of delivery.
While I covered, in depth, what’s wrong with Hillary Clinton’s sentiments on late-term abortion, being that an unborn child past 24 weeks gestation (late-term) never needs to be aborted to save the mother because the infant can be delivered, effectively saving the mother and giving the child a chance at life, there was something else wrong with her remarks when compared with other comments she made.
She wants us to believe she is “doing it for the kids” when trying to strip our gun rights or flood our nation with refugees, but a child’s life is of little concern when it comes to abortion. She would allow a mother to kill an infant up to the day of delivery, yet she cares about the lives of innocent children. Her sentiments on these issues just don’t go together. The lives of children matter only if it gains another vote, pushes forward another agenda, and shoves progressive propaganda down our throats.
2. We will not have boots on the ground… except when we are fighting in the air, on the ground, etc.
Asked if she would put U.S. troops into the vacuum, if ISIS were to be successfully pushed out of Mosul and all of Iraq, to make sure ISIS doesn’t come back or isn’t replaced by something even worse, Hillary contradicted herself. After applauding the “effort led by the Iraqi army, supported by Kurdish forces and also given the help and advice from the number of special forces and Americans on the ground,” she continued, “I will not support putting American forces into Iraq as a force.” However, just a few sentences later, she said, “That’s why I want to have an intelligence surge that protects us here at home while we have to go after them from the air, on the ground, online.”
3. Medicare is great and should be expanded… except it’s going broke so we need “smarter decisions.” It’s your body, but the government will tell you what you can do with it — unless you want to kill an unborn baby. That’s up to you, but what healthcare you will receive won’t be.
This one was a little harder to catch but stood out to me as a nurse because I clearly recalled Hillary touting Medicare in the second debate. “Obviously Medicare, which is a single-payer system, which takes care of our elderly and does a great great job doing it,” she said less than two weeks ago while defending her healthcare plans and the disaster that is Obamacare.
The comment left me reeling, as I thought, “She’s never had to use it or work with it and seems oblivious that it’s running out of money.” This has been a point of contention for me since she wants to expand Medicare to people 55 and over, although the program is already rapidly going under. So, I was very pleased to hear Chris Wallace bring it up.
After acknowledging that Medicare is going to run out of money in the 2020s, Wallace asked Hillary what she planned to do about it. Her response was chilling. Vaguely saying she has a plan, Hillary added, “I think that we will be able to get entitlement spending under control with more resources and smarter decisions.”
That might sound nice, but who decides what’s an entitlement and what’s a smart decision for your healthcare? Should it be you and your doctor or the government? You can’t have it both ways. A failing program can’t expand without a cut on what’s covered, and she’s acknowledging that with her “smarter decisions” remark.
The problem is, the government will decide what’s smart when it comes to your medical care. So much for our right to decide what’s appropriate for our bodies. For me, that was the final nail in her campaign coffin because I’m not thrilled about the government deciding what’s the final nail in mine.
While the list of Hillary’s double talk could go on, it’s “Three strikes, and you’re out,” and these were three big ones. Although neither candidate is perfect, one has proven herself to be a forked-tongue demon, and I think it’s time to give our government an exorcism on November 8. Clintons, be gone!
