The real reasons Hillary Clinton lost in 2016 — And it has nothing to do with Comey or the Russians

While speaking with CNN propagandist Christiane Amanpour at a Women for Women International event in New York on Tuesday, former Democrat presidential candidate Hillary Clinton — arguably the most evil person ever nominated to the White House by a major party, blamed FBI Director James Comey and the Russians for her loss.

“I was on the way to winning until the combination of Jim Comey’s letter on October 28 and Russian WikiLeaks raised doubts in the minds of people who were inclined to vote for me but got scared off — and the evidence for that intervening event is, I think, compelling [and] persuasive,” Clinton said in a rare public appearance, the Washington Post reported.  This came right after she claimed to take “absolute personal responsibility” for her loss.

But Hillary’s loss had nothing to do with James Comey, the Russians, sexism, misogyny, or any of the other horribles put forward by her and her acolytes.

Let’s be clear:  Hillary had more baggage than a freight train, some of it dating back over 40 years, back to her days as a young attorney working on the Watergate investigation.

Fast forward a bit to her time as Arkansas’ First Lady, and later to her time in the White House.  Time and again, Clinton was involved in one scandal after another, although you’d never know it if all you watched was the mainstream media.

Then there was her time in the U.S. Senate where she accomplished… NOTHING! Zero.  Zilch.  Nada.

After getting beat by Barack Obama in 2008, she went to the State Department and got embroiled in even more scandal and corruption, namely her use of a private email server.

Truth be told, she was such a lousy candidate that the DNC had to rig the 2016 primaries to ensure she won.  Thanks to Wikileaks, we know of the collusion between her campaign and several media outlets.

Then there’s her own statements and policy positions.

She’s so soft on terrorism, for example, that one British political party called her “Islam’s whore.”  And let’s not forget that she once promised certain Muslim countries that she would work to silence critics of radical Islam, and once said that Muslims have “nothing whatsoever” to do with terrorism.

She once said Americans need to change their religious beliefs to suit her on social issues like abortion, and smeared a good number of Americans as “deplorable.”

This is just the tip of the iceberg — there were questions surrounding her health, statements made by her campaign that she would destroy certain websites if she were to win, and on and on it went.

Neither the Russians nor James Comey caused Hillary to lose the election.  She did that all by herself.

Truth be told, there’s only two things that kept Hillary from winning — the will of the voters and the grace of God.
