Hillary Clinton Prematurely Claims, “I Win!” Is She Psychologically Stable?!?!

Is this person nuts? How can Hillary Clinton claim to be the winner of the Democratic primaries before the primaries are completed? She may be in the lead, but the race is far from over, and anything (literally) can happen between now and July. Is this person nuts? The situation does bring up the question: Would a mentally healthy person declare victory before actually winning?

Sadly, there is the possibility(?) she has rigged previous primaries, and has the same plans for the remaining primaries. She may know something we don’t, and this is the reason for her premature claim. If that is the case, she is not crazy, but so manipulative and corrupt that she is comfortable thwarting the concept of Democracy. This alone would make her unpredictable, and untrustworthy as President.

What do we know about Hillary Clinton? We know that since her husband’s presidency, she has accumulated great wealth through the use of the Clinton Foundation, a nonprofit organization, and well paid Wall Street speeches. We know that she has remained in a marriage with an unfaithful husband. No one will argue that point. And we know she has created fictitious scenarios, as with her description of being caught in sniper fire when landing in Bosnia.

It is well known, at this point, that the Clinton Foundation has received millions of dollars in donations from wealthy nations. However, the fact that her donors receive special favors, make Mrs. Clinton’s loyalties suspect. It also makes those donations bribes.

Mrs. Clinton described Monica Lewinsky, the White House intern who had an affair with Bill Clinton, as a “narcissistic loony toon,” according to Diane D. Blair, whose diaries were released after her death in 2000. Ms. Lewinsky later called the comment an example of Mrs. Clinton’s impulse to “blame the woman.” It would seem that Mrs. Clinton does blame the women Bill Clinton has had affairs with. He has acknowledged he had a relationship with Gennifer Flowers, and that he paid off Paula Jones in a settlement, and has admitted to his affair with Monica Lewinsky. There is no indication she blames him in any way, shape, or form.

This strongly suggests she is comfortable living in a loveless marriage (regardless of what she says for political reasons), and that she has the ability to reshape reality in her own mind. This does not speak well of her grasp on reality.  The way she treats other people supports this assessment. Elizabeth Drew, in her book, ‘On the Edge’ (1994), wrote Hillary Clinton’s presence at health care meetings was a source of discomfort, with some staff finding her ‘intimidating,’ difficult to argue with, seemed bored unless she was speaking, and her humor was biting.

Would living in a marriage with a promiscuous husband make a person more compassionate? More honest? More caring for one’s fellow-man? Or would that person be shaped by anger and disappointment? And, remember, she has “chosen” to remain in this emotionally destructive relationship.

Mrs. Clinton’s view on romance and marriage may have been set in her youth. In her column, ‘Talking It Over,’ she wrote: One day in 1975, I had to go out-of-town for a few weeks, and Bill drove me to the airport. On the way, we passed a tiny house with a “for sale” sign, and I remarked how pretty it was. When I returned from the trip, Bill said, “Do you remember that house you liked? Well, I bought it, so now you’d better marry me because I can’t live in it by myself.” That’s when I finally said yes. (After he bought her a house, she agreed to marry him. Not the traditional start of a romantic marriage.)

Mrs. Clinton, for reasons unknown, made up a story about landing in Bosnia and having to run from the plane while under sniper fire. Why? Only the woman looking back at her in the mirror knows for sure. This is not the first time someone has made up a war story to impress others. But it does speak of a weak and damaged ego, and the need to impress others, if not with the truth, than with falsehoods. Being tired could possibly work for an explanation for doing it one time but she repeated the Bosnia story on numerous occasions.

Hillary Clinton is not a reflection American beliefs and ethics. We don’t want corrupt, manipulative leaders with a poor grasp of reality. We don’t want hidden agendas and greed. We want people we can trust, who will work with us in creating a nation of honesty and fair play. We want someone who is psychologically stable.
