“When in public, Hillary [Clinton] smiles and acts graciously,” Kessler explains. “As soon as the cameras are gone, her angry personality, nastiness, and imperiousness become evident.”
This, according to a new book by Ronald Kessler, The First Family Detail: Secret Service Agents Reveal the Hidden Lives of the Presidents.
According to the New York Post, Kessler writes flatteringly and critically about people in both parties.
Kessler offers many examples. These include the following:
“Hillary was very rude to agents, and she didn’t appear to like law enforcement or the military,” former Secret Service agent Lloyd Bulman recalls. “She wouldn’t go over and meet military people or police officers, as most protectees do. She was just really rude to almost everybody. She’d act like she didn’t want you around, like you were beneath her.”
Former agent Jeff Crane says, “Hillary would cuss at Secret Service drivers for going over bumps.” Another former member of her detail recollects, “Hillary never talked to us . . . Most all members of first families would talk to us and smile. She never did that.”
Within the White House, Hillary had a “standing rule that no one spoke to her when she was going from one location to another,” says former FBI agent Coy Copeland. “In fact, anyone who would see her coming would just step into the first available office.”
White House usher Christopher B. Emery unwisely called back Barbara Bush after she phoned him for computer troubleshooting. Emery helped the former first lady twice. Consequently, Kessler reports, Hillary sacked him. The father of four stayed jobless for a year.
How much of this is true? I do not know.
However, it’s all entirely plausible.
Hillary Clinton is a socialist. She sought to make the Democratic Party hard core socialist before Obama; before it was cool.
Back when her husband Bill Clinton was President, he struggled to appease conservatives and moderates as well as hard core leftists in his own party. For example, he signed a capital gains tax cut. Can you imagine Barack Obama signing a capital gains tax cut?
Bill Clinton also attempted to nationalize medicine. His wife, Hillary, led the effort. Yes, it ended in disaster, but Hillary’s “HillaryCare” plan was very similar to the Obamacare plan which eventually passed 16 years later. Hillary was for Obamacare before it was Obamacare.
She’s the real deal.
Given Hillary Clinton’s allegiance to redistribution of wealth, conventional wisdom would tell us she should be a particularly nice person. She seeks to save the masses, right? So it reasonably follows that she would treat the peons around her with at least minimal respect.
But according to these reports from retired Secret Service agents, she’s the queen of mean. She’s the epitome of arrogance, and she treats people like dirt.
The reason this makes sense?
When you care – or claim to care – for “people in general” without any regard for the actual individuals who make up “people,” this is what happens.
According to collectivism and socialism, human beings and human lives are not ends in themselves. According to Hillary Clinton’s ideology (the same as Barack Obama’s), an individual’s life is not an end in itself; it’s a means to the end of others.
Your purpose is to produce as much as you can, and then allow the bulk of it to go to authoritative others – like Hillary Clinton – who know better what to do with it.
No matter how pleasant or “compassionate” you make socialism sound, at the end of the day it’s still brute force.
The very idea that you’re entitled to run for office and seize hold of more than half the wealth produced by people in a country like the United States is the ultimate arrogance. Next to that, verbally abusing Secret Service officers and other underlings seems like nothing.
We already know how arrogant Hillary Clinton is, because of her ideals and polices. Persons do not count; “people” do. Rights do not belong to real people. They belong to the government – meaning to her, to redistribute as she sees fit.
The email server and Benghazi scandals also reveal a lot about Hillary Clinton’s arrogance. When you have no respect for people’s individual rights, it stands to reason you disregard their individuality, as well.
Just imagine what she has in store for “the people” if her lifelong lust for the presidency becomes reality.
