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.



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.

  4. When Hillary Clinton was redecorating the White House in 1993, she commissioned a quarter-million dollar job from a Pittsfield, Massachusetts company called Berkshire Hand Screened Wallpapers.

    I was the assistant color mixer on that job.

    It was deliberately mis-printed so that after accounting for the expense in the renovation funds, Mrs. Clinton would have been able to receive a refund due to shoddy work. The company itself was formed shortly before Clinton needed it and went bankrupt and disappeared shortly after. It was one of several such companies I know of on the same White House wallpaper project that did that.

    I tried speaking up about it at the time but was not heard and soon had to fight for survival. I have relatives in Democratic politics in New England and some of them have risen quite high thanks to corruption. They were willing to pull together to destroy my life and my daughters.

    One relative, James Matteau, chairman of the Windham Commission in Vermont who received an award from Howard Dean the same month Katrina was drowning New Orleans (preparing him for FEMA possibilities in 2008) told me he would deny that we are related rather than put a stop to a Clinton activist who began posting my name and physical address in the Care2.com activist site with demands to silence me, when at that time I had stopped trying to expose anything, I had given up. But the Vermont award apparently caught someone’s eye who thought I would be willing to help their fake nonprofit and who would not accept my refusal.

    Well, believe me, James Matteau is exactly the kind of person who inspires :”you can’t choose your relatives” but the destruction of so many lives by the wilingness of Democrats to squash everyone in Clintons path has got to stop.

    Hillary Clinton destroyed the records in the White House but she did not destroy the Social Security departments’ records that prove I did indeed work there and other local records that can show that I did indeed try to report that money-laundering incident, and Hillary Clinton may be very happy that she destroyed my family because of my brother James Matteau’s sycophantic and slavish abandonment of integrity in her interests, but that destruction will come back on her and her political cult ten-fold.

  5. Denise is a complete freak who goes all over the internet bawling out all her wild allegations against everyone.

    If you come across this loser, IGNORE HER. SHE’S INSANE.

  6. Do a Google search under Denise Matteau and also search her for images in Photobucket and on Google and you will see what kind of sickie is speaking here.

    The way she has attacked her own family and joined the cult of the Jesus Christians run by Dave McKay-do a Google on him-he makes members give up KIDNEYS for sale for his profit.

    Denise is a former mental patient who was in Macleans Hospital for threats against people which she continues to perpetuate on the internet and by telephone.

    Research her on The Rick Ross Cult Forum-she used the name dsm there and you will see she was once dead against Dave McKay and now she is on his cult team because she so needed attention.

  7. Denise Matteau has been calling and threatening my life lately. I have called the local police and filed an appropriate report. She keeps accusing me of stalking her daughter and driving her to suicide, and I have blocked her from being able to call me anymore. I had never even met heard of her daughter or heard of her until she started making these bizarre accusations against me. Denise, leave me alone and go get some help.

  8. Now I feel stpiud. That’s cleared it up for me
