One of the favorite talking points of the Left is that Hillary Clinton can be trusted with the nuclear launch codes, and Donald Trump can’t.
The assertion has always been worth a good laugh, because in Hillary you’ve got a living, breathing example of an ongoing security leak. She proved it again in the debate on Wednesday, when she just casually spewed statistics about our nuclear response time in front of a live, international audience.
“Here’s the deal,” Hillary said. “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.”
The Twittersphere jumped all over her for once again leaking classified information. Predictably, Snopes and the Clinton campaign denied she did anything wrong, saying the information’s on the Internet, but even CNN realized what had just happened.
CNN Pentagon Correspondent Barbara Starr reported on “CNN Newsroom” that the information was “extremely classified,” even if it exists somewhere on the Internet. She said:
“The US military does not discuss the precise specifics of the timeframes of launching nuclear weapons. That, by all accounts, is extremely classified, and if you know information to be classified, and you’re a government official, even if it’s in the open source, even if it’s on the Internet, you are not supposed to disclose it. Could somebody be prosecuted for it? Who knows. That’s, you know — this is one of these constant questions in Washington nowadays. What exactly is classified, what’s disclosed, what is prosecutable? But the bottom line is, the US military, not especially thrilled to be discussing in precise detail what it takes to launch nuclear weapons.”
Thousands upon thousands of emails — with more coming out every day — have shown that Clinton is nothing if not a person who plays loosey-goosey with the law, and her insistence on skirting federal regulations and setting up her own email server exposed classified information.
While she and her camp desperately claim that there’s no evidence her email server was hacked, thousands of private emails keep pouring out of somewhere. And if emails aren’t enough, there are supporting videos exposing her and her campaign’s private crimes, too, courtesy of Project Veritas.
The problem with trusting Hillary with anything related to national security ultimately has got to with the fact that she’s just not right in the head.
Despite yet another effort at covering up something Clinton doesn’t want exposed, her serious health problems are quite obvious and undeniable by anyone who observes her repeated odd behaviors.
Even her Girl Friday, Huma Abedin, admitted in an email that Clinton is “often confused.” Another email suggests that during Clinton’s tenure at the State Department, Abedin was in charge of reminding Clinton to take a nap. An email from another staffer laments that “she doesn’t seem to know what planet we are all living in at the moment.”
Then there was the scene at the 9/11 memorial, when she suffered some sort of attack, had to be propped up like a statue against a post, then was carried like a piece of lumber into her waiting van, even leaving behind a shoe that later had to be picked up by the Secret Service.
Whether Hillary’s security breach at Wednesday’s debate was attributable to her obvious physical problems affecting her brain, or was a side effect of her life-long pathological lying and poor judgment, it’s proof positive that Hillary cannot be trusted with this country’s secrets, particularly those as vital and dangerous as nuclear launch codes and procedures.
