Has Hillary Clinton already committed an act of treason before having even been elected to the office of President? Some are saying that in last night’s debate that’s exactly what happened.
Certainly there’s no lack of voices who’ve accused Mrs. Clinton of nefarious activities has head of the U.S. State Department for her involvement in a blatant pay-for-play scheme wherein foreign governments gave millions of dollars to the Clinton Foundation in exchange for face-to-face meetings with the then-department head. But last night on national television Mrs. Clinton took things up another notch.
Those of the belief that high-ranking Democrats cannot or should not be trusted with serious matters of national defense got even more red meat last night as, for the second time in three months, a senior Democrat gave away a significant national security secret as it relates to nuclear armament.
At about the 30-minute mark during the live debate broadcast moderator Chris Wallace asked Donald Trump whether he believed Russia has been behind the email hacks which have dogged the Clinton campaign. That question somehow morphed into a discussion of nuclear armament and when her time to rebut Trump’s rant came Mrs. Clinton said;
“I find it ironic that he’s raising nuclear weapons. This is a person who has been very cavalier even casual about the use of nuclear weapons. …The bottom line on nuclear weapons is that when the president gives the order it must be followed. There’s about four minutes between the order being given and the people responsible for launching nuclear weapons to do so. …Ten people who have had that awesome responsibility have come out and in an unprecedented way said they would not trust Donald Trump with the nuclear codes or to have his finger on the nuclear button. ”
So Trump is the cavalier one? Later Mr. Trump again accused Clinton of having “terrible judgement.” Based on this nuclear answer alone it’s clear Trump is right.
The incredibly irresponsible statement by Clinton is reminiscent of an equally remarkable breach of national security a few months ago by Vice President Biden when he pointed out for the audience and television cameras alike exactly where his nuclear codes were.
Speaking at a Hillary rally in Scranton Pennsylvania in August with Hillary directly behind him, Uncle Joe was assailing Trump as being untrustworthy when it comes to control over our nuclear codes. In the course of making his point Biden dropped this bomb (no pun intended), “There’s a guy who follows me, right back here, (Biden the pointed behind him to the right), has the nuclear codes, so God forbid anything ever happened to the president and I had to make a decision, the codes are with—he is not qualified to know the code! He can’t be trusted!”
TRUMP can’t be trusted?! You people have given away two bits of top secret information on our nuclear capabilities on national tv! Joe identified the code’s handler and Hillary informed the world of our response time. Is this the kind of information we want broadcast out to the entire world? Well, now the entire world knows.
