The Russian collusion hoax has been definitively discredited, but Hillary Clinton clings to it nonetheless, apparently hoping that the anti-Russian sentiment that the invasion of Ukraine has stirred up will help propel her into the White House in 2024. But the Left’s war with reality is leading Hillary, along with many other prominent Leftists, into increasing absurdities, and clinging to the Russia hoax only compounds the problem, making Hillary seem increasingly like Gloria Swanson in Sunset Boulevard, the aging onetime film star who hasn’t realized that the glory has departed and that there will be no triumphant return to the bright lights.
At a symposium of sycophants at Georgetown University on Thursday, Hillary advanced the fanciful notion that everyone’s favorite bête noire, Vladimir Putin, was rubbing his hands in glee and waiting for Donald Trump’s reelection in 2020 to implement his plan to invade Ukraine. “He got his dreams fulfilled when Trump was elected” in 2016, said Hillary for what must be the twenty-thousandth time. “He, you know, decided that he didn’t want to face me as president,” she added. “So he did all the things we now know he did that are well cataloged.” Well refuted, also.
But as if aware that we have heard that song before, Hillary was also ready with some new material, too. “And I believe that if Trump had been reelected, Putin would have waited for Trump to do what he said he was intending to do, which was to pull us out of NATO.” That would have played right into Putin’s fiendish plans, you see. Hillary continued: “And that would have created such a vacuum that invading Ukraine, which he thought was going to be easy anyway, would be a fait accompli.”
Here’s where Hillary reveals herself fully to be someone whose balloon never lands. You see, in her view, Putin knew he had a compliant puppet in Trump, one whom he himself had installed. So the wily Russian knew that Trump would pull the U.S. out of NATO, and that would give him a free hand to invade Ukraine. But instead, Old Joe Biden became president, and so the dastardly Putin was stopped in his tracks, and Ukraine was never invaded. Of course, Putin did invade Ukraine while Biden was president, so that can’t be right; perhaps Hillary means that if she had been elected in 2020, rather than Biden or Trump, Putin, scared to death of Mrs. Bill Clinton, would never have dared invade Ukraine.
Whatever Hillary may mean, the facts are undeniable: during the Obama administration, Putin moved against Ukraine, seizing Crimea. During the Trump administration, Putin did not move against Ukraine. During the Biden administration, Putin launched his all-out invasion of Ukraine. Yet Hillary Clinton would have us believe that the invasion would have been even worse if Trump had been president last February when the invasion began. Or something. Just as all the vaccinated people who get COVID-19 have assured us of how much worse it would have been if they hadn’t been multiply jabbed. (In that analogy, the Biden presidency becomes a COVID jab: ineffective for what it was supposed to do, and possibly lethal. How very fitting.)
Reality is, as always, different. On Feb. 22, Trump said that while he was president, he gave Putin an ultimatum. “If you move against Ukraine while I’m president, I will hit Moscow.” To this, Putin responded, “No way,” whereupon Trump responded, “All those beautiful golden turrets will be blown up.”
Trump’s claim was met with skepticism, but it’s worth noting that Trump’s threat to Putin was based on his personality as it had come to be publicly known. Putin couldn’t be sure that Trump, so often described as brash, impulsive, erratic, and the like, wouldn’t behave in exactly that fashion. Trump added: “The Russian invasion of Ukraine is a terrible atrocity that should never have been allowed to happen or would have never happened. I know I speak for everyone here tonight when I say we are praying for the proud people of Ukraine. They are going through hell. Make no mistake, however, that Russia would not have dared to annex one inch of territory if I was in the White House. In fact, they never did it when I was there.”
That is certainly true. But at Georgetown University Thursday evening, the hapless attendees were treated to Hillary Clinton’s alternate reality in which Trump was preparing to present Ukraine to Putin on a silver platter. And people actually believe her.

With Hillary Clinton continuing to spread slanderous conspiracy theories about Donald Trump its best to consider the source of who is talking to libelous about Mr., Trump. For it should also be remembered that the reasons why Hillary Clinton lost the Presidential 2016 election is not any kind of Russian hacking or FBI director, angry White men, Facebook, WikiLeaks, Twitter, or Putin. The reasons that Donald Trump won the election was that he had much better policies and politics than Hillary did. As for example, Trump is for very strong border security and Hillary was not.
In addition, some of the other reasons Hillary Clinton lost the election was, as try as her might to cover it up, was that Hillary was not only extremely incompetent but also she could not hide her the fact that is she is a two-faced, narcissistic vicious, manipulative, corrupt pathological liar.

Regarding that chronic lying Hillary Clinton, be it be about Donald Trump or about and that awful Bosnia and Herzegovina war during the 1990’s
For Hillary Clinton is such a constant, pathological liar that one time she said on the television news that when she landed at the Sarajevo airport, she said they left the plane quickly under the cover of shields because there were terrorists shooting at them at that airport.
It later was revealed no such incident at occurred at that airport when Hilary and her staff landed at that airport. In addition, that she and the people would never have been allowed to leave that plane if even a chance of shooters had been around.
That unethical and dishonest lying politician, Hillary Clinton, was bluffing in her fabrication and falsehood of that story with the hope and chance that no one would do research to check her story out, as to discover if she was lying again. The more fool her for thinking that. For her statement was researched.
After the research was completed and was proven to be a fiction and the American public want her to about the falsehood that she the gall to tell. Hillary Clinton said “What I said was a …”
Well some people had hoped that she have once been honest enough to then say, “What I said was a lie.” Still even in that situation, Hilary could not be truthful , what she said of a kind of cover-up of her dishonest lying speaking she actually had the nerve to say, “What I said was a mistake”
What an inappropriate word to use “mistake’ Hillary should have been truthful and used the word “lie” instead. The problem is that speaking truth and not lying in not part of the character of Hillary Clinton.
To sum this up in a sort of “lighthearted way” it may is accuracy said, “If Hillary Clinton would tell someone “It’s raining outside.” That person wise to look out of the window before believing her.

Correct and may I add that if the truth will make us free, liars can only bring
us into bondage. As I look around it seems the as things are now Hillary would
be the icing on the cake with her fallacious demeanor from Hell.
Only joe biden would be better to run against. I bet hillary is miffed she had run (and keel over), instead of hiding out in her basement like joe and letting the fraud do its’ work.
Dems cheated as usual in ’16, but they thought they had it in the bag and didn’t pull out all the stops like they did in ’20. I’m still almost as amazed at how blatant they were, as I am that they got away with it.
Hill’s got obviously fake eyes, when they aren’t her usual reptilian dead eyes.
