Unless you live under a rock and, say, think the thing a basketball goes through is called a “ring” you are well familiar with Hillary Rodham Clinton and her upcoming coronation. Fillory, however, may be less familiar to some. It is a reference from Lev Grossman’s series of fantasy novels, The Magicians. Fillory is a magical never never land in this bestseller series which is supposedly the subject of a series of saccharine children’s books. Fillory and the fictitious children’s books are obviously patterned on Narnia and the book series by C. S. Lewis—an equally insipid magical world.
However, in Lev Grossman’s adult magic series, Fillory is very real and the creator of Fillory and author of the Fillory books is a child molester. So Fillory, instead of this wonderful idealistic place, is actually a very dangerous place controlled by a vicious sociopath. Hmm, now what would Hillary and Fillory have to do with one another, can we guess?
The narrative that the Clinton’s—mainly Hillary Clinton—have been promoting for over fifteen years that she is a dedicated progressive and reformer, a tireless champion of women’s and children’s rights and other noble causes. In truth, Hill & Bill are tireless promoters on no one but themselves; whenever she has occupied a political office, Hillary has used it to enrich herself at the public expense, selling votes and influence to the highest bidder; this is in addition to her ruthless grab for power. Let us be fair about this, were she the CEO of a major corporation, she would have made it tremendously successful and destroyed whatever competition lay in her way. But what may be allowable in the private sector (especially since the government has not enforced the Sherman Anti-Trust Act in nearly half a century) is NOT allowable to a person holding public office.
As Senator, she not only voted to invade Iraq but at every opportunity has been an eager war-hawk, adopting all the GOP Neocon’s official lies as her own. As Secretary of State, she has pushed the Obama administration to intervene in Libya and more recently Syria, both with disastrous consequences; she aided and abetted a military coup in Honduras and has protected that dictatorship from sanctions for their gross human rights abuse—in large part because of her financial dealings with a multi-national company, which is murdering and raping women and children to terrorize the local populace to acquiesce to a mega damn being built on their lands. You want weapons to suppress democracy in your country or region? You got it! You want to expand your fracking operations overseas? You got it! You want to push through trade deals that steal good-paying American jobs and avoid labor, environmental and other laws by outsourcing overseas—why Hillary has pushed through 45 such bad trade deals.
Of course, any benefit to a corporation or foreign government comes with a price—but you can discuss the details on Hillary’s private email server, so the public won’t know about the bribery and financial dirt she’s dealing in.
The Clinton Foundation is officially billed as a benevolent organization doing good throughout the world; it is in fact, nothing more that a multi-national slush fund, designed to launder bribes and pay to play payments from, not just corporations, but foreign governments. Beginning with NAFTA and continuing on with a serious of disadvantageous trade deals designed to enthrone international banks and multinational corporations over the US and other democracies, and roll back environmental laws, safety requirements and labor protections worldwide, while transferring good paying American jobs overseas, where their friends will pay starvation wages and murder anyone who even thinks of organizing a labor union. The tentacles of the Clinton Crime Family are so numerous, so convoluted and so evil, it would be impossible to summarize them in one book, although a number of investigative reporters have tried.
Having amassed a huge slush fund, the Clintons have spent the last eight years dispersing their largess to the political leaders of the Democratic Party, and even those few who have not been corrupted by their money are too afraid of retribution to openly protest about their corruption of the entire party apparatus. Yes, Hillary has an enemies list too, a very real physical list, where those who have crossed her or opposed her are judged and graded for their crimes against La Familia. Stalin would envy the unquestioned control which she exerts over the party stalwarts.
In the scheme of things, she was to have had her coronation in 2008, but an obscure freshman senator from Illinois managed to come from behind to steal the crown—I mean presidency—quite unexpectedly. Hillary was not the popular choice in 2008 any more than she is now; but this time around, she has made sure that her will in the primaries is rigidly enforced, with local party hacks and Hillary minions busily hacking electronic voting machines (easily done by anyone with an 8th grade science education), forged absentee ballots, and assorted last minute voter purges, vote flipping and change of party affiliation. The evidence of massive vote fraud in Arizona and New York is well documented, but since Hillary’s major contributors include all the major media conglomerates, you will hear ne’er a word on television, the newspapers, radio or much of anywhere else.
Hillary has a 57% distrust rating with the general public, only slightly less than Donald Trump’s; where Bernie Sanders has turned out crowds of twenty, thirty thousand and more fro rallies, Hillary can barely get a thousand or less to show up at her rallies. Fortunately, CNN and MSNBC are very good at using their telephoto lenses to make a small crowd look big. Without the massive cheating she has carried out in primaries across the country, she would not be in the nominal lead in committed delegates right now; even so, Hillary has been unable to put away an outsider candidate, who has virtually walked on eggshells during the primaries not engage in personal attacks on Her Majesty, or even much point out her many obvious weaknesses as a candidate—such as the brewing criminal investigations into her use of private emails to mix her work as Secretary of State with international bribery and influence peddling. Her weakness in the primaries has been abundantly apparent to all but the blind—which apparently includes the DNC.
So, given her willingness to go to any extreme to cheat and bribe her way to the nomination, Americans can expect the head of the Clinton Crime Family to be nominated. But if the Democratic Party establishment wishes to believe in Hillary’s never never land of Fillory, voters need to be made aware of the evil that lurks in that fantasy land.
Like the delusional land of Fillory, the magical thinking of the DNC and the Hillarybots will, sooner or later be exposed as the delusion it really is. Whether this is after she has been nominated and her candidacy blows up on the campaign trail, or, if her sabotage of the Republican presidential campaign works (Trump has long been a friend of the Clintons), after she has been elected, she will be almost certainly suffer Congressional investigations for the length of her reign, culminating in her impeachment.
Sooner or later the elaborate lie Hillary Clinton has erected will crash down and take the Democratic Party down with her. When that happens, don’t blame Bernie, his ‘bros’ (or his sis’); blame a corrupt DNC and all the party hacks who went along with her crooked campaign. For all the Queen’s horses and all the Queen’s IT experts won’t be able to bail Queen Hillary out of jail.
