Why Bill Clinton Hates Barack Obama AND Hillary

Political Night Train has been tracking Bill Clinton’s activities for months now, and has reached an opinion on why he has been so ……….. erratic, making outrageous statements that seem to make Hillary’s lies pale in comparison. 

 

Much has been written about Bill Clinton’s character, and they essentially all paint a picture of an overinflated ego, narcissism (matched only by Hillary’s), fits of purple rage, self-loathing, and now, outright hatred for some.  There are currently no reasonable restraints on Bill.  He can do and say as he pleases.  But what more can be done to Bill?  He’s been Impeached by a vote of the US House of Representatives.  He’s lost law suits.  He’s been disbarred and lost his law license.  He’s apparently lost the love and respect of the black community (except perhaps for black women over 55).

 

To explain it all, understand that Bill Clinton, much like Jimmy Carter, is an ex-President in search of a positive legacy.  Carter sought his through the Carter Center in Atlanta and spent years seeking the one thing that would give him a lasting positive legacy – the Nobel Peace Prize.  But in winning the Nobel Peace Prize Carter had to share it.  And it was common knowledge that Carter only receive the prize as a political slap at George Bush.  So even the one thing that Carter wanted more than all else, like his Presidency, is tainted.  Compare Carter’s “shared Nobel” with some of the outright winners: Theodore Roosevelt, Jane Addams, Cordell Hull, Albert Schweitzer, George Marshall, Henry Kissinger, Begin & Sadat, Mother Teresa.

 

Now, is Bill Clinton really in the same league (Jimmy Carter excepted)?  And this is what Bill seeks to secure his place in history.  Oh, and Al Gore has a Nobel, just to put salt into Bill’s wounds.

 

So, what makes Bill hate?  First, to Hillary.  Bill may not exactly hate Hillary (although he has lots of reasons), but he does seem to hate the idea that she may get elected President.  Why?  A successful Hillary Presidency would greatly diminish Bill’s Presidency.  He would be reduced to a footnote in history, the spouse, former President to the more successful President Hillary Rodham Clinton.  So, deep inside, Bill wants Hillary to fail, and this in part explains may of his statements.  Simple enough, but what about Barack Obama?

 

Barack Obama is everything Bill is not (Jeremiah Wright excepted).  Obama is beloved by the press; is adored by his fans (Bill has always sought the “Elvis factor”); is a good orator; smooth; has not had any bimbo outbreaks; a nice wife and family; successful author; has 98% support from blacks, and most important, Obama IS black.  If elected, Obama WOULD be the first black President.  Bill would be just the first black President in name only.

Obama’s Church: Values and Beliefs Do Matter

The following article by John is quite interesting, and correctly so, Jeremiah Wright, like Louis Farrakan, is only the messager.  Barack Obama may have been present for only a few of Wright’s racist sermons, but Obama surely knew, and understood what Trinity United Church of Christ stood for, what the beliefs and values of the church are, and how those values and beliefs would be picked up by his wife and children.

Teachings of Obama’s church concern readers

It’s not Jeremiah Wright, it’s the church. The controversy over Sen. Barack Obama and the Rev. Wright is not about a sermon. Wright’s sermons represent what the church is all about, and Obama has been a member of this church for 20 years!

Obama’s church proclaims on its Web site: “A congregation committed to adoration … preaching salvation … seeking reconciliation … with a nonnegotiable commitment to Africa…” Notice the “commitment to Africa” and not to America? Michelle Obama said it herself, being for the first time “proud of my country.” After 20 years in this church, I see why.

I am not in opposition to this church’s right to believe and teach these things. Yet, is this your vision of America?

The presidency is the executive branch of our government and will employ many people picked by Sen. Obama. How many people will he enlist who hold the beliefs of his church? Is this the change you want?

Bitter and Armed?

‘It’s not surprising then that they get bitter, they cling to guns, or religion, or antipathy to people who aren’t like them, or anti-immigrant sentiment, or anti-trade sentiment, as a way to explain their frustrations.’

Thus quoted Barack Obama in San Francisco before a liberal audience of fat cats.  What was Obama thinking?  Did he not think white Americans in rural and small town Pennsylvania would be offended?  Is he so out of touch with middle American that he didn’t know when he was making an offensive remark?  Political Night Train believes Obama’s statement goes to his core beliefs and values, those beliefs and values that were formed in his early adulthood, and for 20 years reinforced by Jeremiah Wright.  Just as all liberals think they know what is best for everyone, so too, the true liberal knows, without asking why the rest of us think and act as we do.  If these words were spoken by a Republican about inner city blacks, there would have been hell to pay with the MSM.  Here’s how it would sound:  “It’s not surprising then that they get angry, that they turn to rap music and guns, or black liberation theology, or hatred toward people who aren’t black, or anti-government sentiment, or anti-education, as a way to explain their frustrations.”  Like how that sounds.  Many of Barack Obama’s statements, those that are uttered before liberals in mostly closed door sessions, sound like somewhat watered down statements from Jeremiah Wright.  Can’t you just hear Wright in a Trinity United Church of Christ sermon saying those same words as Obama, just with more hatred and racism.  No, Obama is not an elitist.  He is an extreme liberal, with a good measure of socialism rolled in, and influenced by 20 years of Jeremiah Wright’s brand of activism.  Yes, he has a smooth wrapper, and a politician’s style, but inside, he is most likely burning with some of Wright’s own values and beliefs.

Jim Wooten of the Atlanta Constitution had this to say about Barack Obama’s patriotism:

As a Southerner accustomed to a culture of God, guns and patriotism expressed as easily and comfortably as one’s preference for Fords or Chevrolets, I’m jarred by Barack Obama’s every attempt to explain his patriotism.

I don’t deny his patriotism.

I just don’t recognize his definitions.

In Wednesday night’s debate, he was asked a videotaped question by Nash McCabe of Latrobe, Pa. “I want to know if you believe in the American flag,” she asked. “I am not questioning your patriotism, but all our servicemen, policemen and EMS wear the flag. I want to know why you don’t.”

“I revere the American flag and I would not be running for president if I did not revere this country,” he said. In no other country, he continued, would “my story” even be possible. And then this, which is where the words begin to jar:

“What I’ve tried to do is to show my patriotism by how I treat veterans when I’m working in the Senate Veterans Affairs Committee; by making sure that I’m speaking forcefully about how we need to bring this war in Iraq to a close because I think it is not serving our national security well and it’s not serving our military families and our troops well; talking about how we need to restore a sense of economic fairness to this country because that’s what this country has always been about, is providing upward mobility and ladders to opportunity for all Americans. That’s what I love about this country. And so I will continue to fight for those issues.”

This is not patriotism — or at least any form of it I recognize. Substitute any interest group — organized labor, trial lawyers, bartenders, Teamsters or insurance agents — after the phrase “I’ve tried to show my (compassion, support, patriotism) by how I treat (name the interest group) in the Senate. …”

Political Night Train agrees with Wooten.  Obama does have a way of explaining his patriotism that does not quite fit the definition the rest of us use.  This is in keeping with those liberation theology values and beliefs Obama shares with Jeremiah Wright and James Cone. 

ABC Quizzes Obama On Values and Beliefs

It appears ABC has been reading Political Night Train, and they finally get it!  When it comes to Presidential candidates, Values and Beliefs do matter.  As do Character and Competence.  Political Night Train has been posting for months now that the core values and beliefs of the candidates are indeed important.  Barack Obama would have us believe that his values and beliefs should have little bearing, that if we want to be part of something historical, we should all vote for him, the Black candidate.  Somehow this will heal all those old racial feelings between whites and blacks.

 

PHILADELPHIABarack Obama got the first real glimpse here Tuesday night of what he will face if he becomes the Democratic presidential nominee. Between now and November, the most important question he will be forced to answer is: Who is Barack Obama?

That was the subtext of the relentless questioning he faced at the National Constitution Center here on Tuesday. For the first half of the debate, ABC’s Charlie Gibson and George Stephanopoulos threw one question after another at Obama that all shared the same underlying themes: what are your values and what do you believe?

 

Obama was questioned over and over,  for nearly 45 minutes regarding such issues as his relationship with Jeremiah Wright, his obvious lack of a flag lapel pin to show his patriotism, his readiness to be Commander-In-Chief, his relationship with Weather Underground radicals.  Then Hillary piled on, as expected.  Today, Obama cried foul, complaining that the media was focusing on his words, in particular, his misstatements.  Obama seems to think we should all drink the coolade, accept his ideas and not question the underlying core beliefs and values that form the basis for those ideas.  And who’s ideas?  Are they Obama’s ideas, based on beliefs and values shared by Americans?  Or, are they ideas shaped by 20 years of association with Jeremiah Wright, James Meeks, and members of the Weather Underground.  How much of his core beliefs are shaped by black liberation theology?  Note that Obama answered on question that he had disowned Jeremiah Wright, then restated that he had disowned Wright’s statements.  Obama also denied that he had ever been in church when Wright make his racist remarks.  As Hillary would say,”that requires suspending belief”.  Twenty years and Obama didn’t hear any of Wright’s numerous racist remarks; twenty years and Michelle Obama didn’t hear any of those remarks; twenty years and neither heard Wright’s remarks repeated by other church members?  Churches are by nature social organizations, and one thing is true of social organizations:  People talk, they hear and they repeat, especially the words of their religious leaders.

 

Much as Charlie Gibson and George Stephanopoulos think they are getting to the “who is Barack Obama”, they failed to ask the really probing questions, such as:  “How much of black liberation theology do you support?”, “And do you, Obama, believe that black liberation theology values and beliefs represent the values and beliefs of all votes, black, white, and otherwise?”

 

Obama also needs to be questioned further on how he would direct the US Military as Commander-In-Chief.  His answers Wednesday night showed an almost total lack of understanding of the relationship between the civilian branch of the government and the military. 

 

As an added note, want to see an example of “liberation theology” run amok?  Look no further than what is happening right now in Paraguay where former Catholic Bishop Fernando Armindo Lugo Mendez is likely the country’s next President.  The Catholic Church has disowned Lugo for his “liberation theology” beliefs.

 

Obama & Hillary: Trust Is The Key Issue of Their Character

After much review and thought, Political Night Train has distilled the Democratic candidates down to two key issues for both Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton:  Character and Competence.  Of those two issues, none is more important than Character, and under Character, for both Obama and Clinton the main are of focus is “Trust”.  One advantage of this rather long Democratic primary is that it has clearly shown that both Obama and Hillary have different, but major weaknesses when it comes to “Trust”.

For Hillary the trust issue has been along and winding road, going back many years and is due to her ingrained personality traits, those being, a major world class control freak, extreme narcissistic personality disorder, and as Bill Safire said, “a congenital liar”.  The lies have now become pathological.  Hillary just cannot tell the truth.  It all starts with her unwillingness to be truthful to herself, and this is simply a defense mechanism.

The Bosnia lie was not the latest.  Now Hillary tells a story about how her father taught her to shoot a gun.  That now makes her pro-gun rights.  Anyone who believes this latest story has been in deep freeze, or on another planet.  Here are a few more:

Lied about a $100,000 bribe, camouflaged as futures trades, from Tyson Foods Inc. At issue was a $100,000 windfall from cattle futures after a $1,000 investment.

 

Lied about speculating in Health Care industry futures while overseeing legislative reform of same.

 

Failed to correct false testimony (i.e., lies) by co-defendant Ira Magaziner in Health Care trial.

 

Lied about ordering members of the Health Care Task Force to shred documents that were the target of a court probe.

 

Lied about and obstructed justice by ordering the shredding of Vince Foster’s documents in the Rose Law Firm.

 

In 1996, Hillary was accused by the Senate Special Whitewater Committee of ordering the removal of potentially damaging files related to Whitewater from Foster’s office on the night of his death and telling aides to lie about their removal. Of course, Hillary denied everything.

 

Obstructed justice by keeping her billing records, a document sought under subpoena, in the White House residence.  Then lied about it.

 

Lied to investigators about her knowledge about billing records.

 

Lied to investigators about her involvement in the Castle Grande land flip con.

 

Lied about ordering the use of the FBI to discredit Travel Office employees.

 

Lied to investigators about her involvement in the firing of Travel Office Employees (Travelgate). In May 1993, the co-president was accused of having a central hand in firing several long-time employees of the White House Travel Office, the better to give the pricey travel business to her Hollywood pals, Linda Bloodworth Thomason and Harry Thomason. Hillary denied everything and when Whitewater Independent Counsel Robert Ray investigated Travelgate, he concluded that there was substantial evidence that involved Hillary but not enough to warrant an indictment.

 

A Federal judge orders a trial on July 25, 1994 to determine if Hillary Clinton’s heath care task force illegally operated in secret.

Here then are some of the characteristics of a narcissistic personality disorder, note that Hillary displays all these characteristics:

Remember that a narcissist’s goal is attention. His or her whole life is a game of monopoly for it all. Keep in mind that attention comes in many forms, including regard, love, and respect.

 

Grandiosity

Slander others, or treat them like dirt

Lack of empathy, or play-acting empathy, such as tears-on-demand

It’s all about getting attention

Projecting a image of oneself, even if it means telling lies

Projecting an image of oneself such that others owe the person all their attention without having to ask for it.

Haughty attitude

For Barack Obama, the full picture has not yet developed as it has for Hillary.  However, we do know that there are major trust issues related to Obama’s long term relationship with Jeremiah Wright, Trinity United Church of Christ, and James Meeks.  Obama’s embrace of Black Liberation Theology, as preached by both Wright and Meeks has questioned whether voters should trust what he is saying on the campaign trail, or what he has practiced, through TUCC for the past 20 years. 

 

 

Obama’s Church Cries “Enough”, Wants to Restrict the Press

Trinity United Church of Christ, Barack Obama’s church, and Jeremiah Wright’s church now wants to restrict press access to church officials, members and services.  It seems Pastor Otis Moss III is getting a taste of what others who have found themselves in the news have faced, unwanted attention.  Given that the attention is mostly negative and generated not so much by the church itself, as by it’s two most famous, and infamous members, it may seem reasonable the church is crying foul.  Political Night Train questions Barack Obama’s judgment for remaining in a church that openly promoted racism and tolerated Jeremiah Wright’s ran tings.  But Obama went a step further, naming Wright as an advisor to his campaign.  If Obama was truthful when he said he had disagreed with Wright in years past, why then did he include him as a senior advisor.  What advice was Wright providing to Obama, and was that advice tainted with racism?  Was Wright’s advice to Obama based on liberation theology?  Was Wright’s advice tainted by the Nation of Islam?  If elected, would Obama continue to seek and accept Jeremiah Wright’s advice, and how would that advice shape domestic and foreign policy?  These are all questions Barack Obama must address in the coming months.

The following article is by Frank James

Sen. Barack Obama’s church, Trinity United Church of Christ, is fed up and not going to take it anymore. “It” would be the media intrusions that have come with the controversy over the by- now infamous comments of its retired senior pastor, Rev. Jeremiah Wright.

The church’s new lead pastor, Otis Moss III, held a press conference yesterday to make two points. He called for a national conversation about race. And he wanted to read the riot act to some reporters who have gone overboard in the opinion of church members and others, in their pursuit of interviews with Trinity members.

The call for a racial dialogue gave the press conference a more elevated gloss than if it had been merely held for the purpose of telling reporters to cease and desist from bothering church members.

But one got the sense from watching the press conference that the main purpose was to tell the media to back off.
