“WHAT DIFFERENCE, AT THIS POINT, DOES IT MAKE?”

by Capt. Joseph R. John (Ret.), Chairman, CombatVeteransForCongress

(Jun. 9, 2016) — For four years, while I was a Midshipman matriculating at the US Naval Academy, I was a member of the “Working Honor Committee” with battalion representatives from throughout the Brigade of Midshipmen to study issues that might affect the “Honor Concept” and make recommendations for consideration by the Executive Department.

“HONOR” is the bedrock of a human being’s character. The below-referenced article speaks volumes about a young US Marine Captain whose steadfast actions, regardless of consequences, embodied his true sense of “HONOR.”

This dissertation on “HONOR” has nothing to do with gender, party affiliation, ideology, or policy. This is as much an analysis of character and judgement and how it affects personal “HONOR.”

It is not just about Hillary Clinton’s “character and judgement;” it’s also about the “character and judgement” of the Attorney General, the Occupant of the Oval Office, and most important, the “judgement” of the American people in the most important election in 240 years.

As outlined in the article, you will understand why Hillary Clinton is the antithesis of the impressive young US Marine Captain that the article is about.

Hillary has repeatedly proven by her responses over the last 40 years that she is a serial liar, in her responses to questions about Benghazi, Whitewater, Vince Foster, the transmission of over 2,200 classified messages on an unclassified server.  Hillary repeatedly lied to the parents of the four dead Americans murdered during “The Battle of Benghazi” while she stood within close proximity to the caskets of those dead Americans, and she has repeatedly lied to the American people about who perpetrated the attack on the US mission in Benghazi.

Hillary kept repeating that the attack was the result of a peaceful demonstration against a YouTube video that went bad in order to mislead the American voters before the presidential election of 2012. Yet on the night of the attack, Hillary told her daughter that the attack was perpetrated by a terrorist-like organization.

She has continued to lie to the press, the Congress, the American people, and the families of the four deceased Americans up to the present day by repeating the outright lie, that no military relief could have been sent to save the lives of the four Americans.

Hillary has told many more lies over the past 40 years than can be relayed here and was even fired from her position as a staffer by the Joint Congressional Committee investigating President Nixon for possible impeachment because of her lying, but the left-of-center liberal media establishment has never called her on any of her serial lies.

Anyone who lies to the parents of deceased American combat personnel must be precluded from ever serving in any federal office, especially in the office of the President of the United States.

Hillary is responsible for the death of four courageous Americans who were easily murdered by radical Islamic terrorists during “The Battle of Benghazi” because she refused to provide them with adequate security in response to their repeated requests for additional security over a nine-month period.  Twelve personal requests were made directly to Hillary by the deceased Ambassador which she repeatedly ignored.

Electing Clinton would mean the security and intelligence agencies of the United States, holding people accountable for grievous errors of integrity, responsibility, judgement, and for repeatedly committing high crimes against the United States, will be abandoned.

“What difference, at this point, does it make?”

What we already know about Hillary’s security infractions should disqualify her from “ANY” government position which requires the transmission of critical information to a mission’s success, as outlined in US Federal Law, Title 18, Section 2017 listed below.   But beyond that, the way Hillary has repeatedly responded to being found out for violating federal security laws is a criminal offense— she has dismissed its importance, claiming ignorance, blamed others. By her actions over the last four years, Hillary has demonstrated that she lacks even the slightest degree of integrity.

The way Hillary has responded to her violation of security regulations “indicts” her beyond anything any FBI investigation of her criminal actions will ever reveal.

The above-listed elements reveal Hillary’s true character and her poor judgement. The saddest thing is that so many in America seem not to understand her egregious actions, which is because of the cover the left-of-center liberal media establishment has provided for her.

Anyone who destroyed 30,000 messages while she was Secretary of State, an action that is an outright violation of Federal Law, while at the same time transmitting  2,200+ SECRET, TOP SECRET, TOP SECRET (SCI), and 25 sensitive COMPARTMENTED messages that the American people will never be allowed to see on an unclassified server in her home, should be indicted for “High Crimes” against the United States.

U.S. Code Title 18, Section 2017

(a) Whoever willfully and unlawfully conceals, removes, mutilates, obliterates, or destroys, or attempts to do so, or, with intent to do so takes and carries away any record, proceeding, map, book, paper, document, or other thing, filed or deposited with any clerk or officer of any court of the United States, or in any public office, or with any judicial or public officer of the United States, shall be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than three years, or both.

(b) Whoever, having the custody of any such record, proceeding, map, book, document, paper, or other thing, willfully and unlawfully conceals, removes, mutilates, obliterates, falsifies, or destroys the same, shall be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than three years, or both; and shall forfeit his office and be disqualified from holding any office under the United States. As used in this subsection, the term “office” does not include the office held by any person as a retired officer of the Armed Forces of the United States.”

It explicitly states “shall forfeit their office and be disqualified from holding any office under the United States.”

We encourage you to compare Hillary to the Honorable US Marine Captain in the below-listed article.

Hillary’s commitment is only to her endless ambition. She is a serial liar with poor judgement, has absolutely “NO HONOR,” and would continue with serial lies to the American people if she ever ascended to the presidency.
