Clinton Lies Recklessly, Like She’s Reading a Movie Script – Fiction, Of Course
Hillary Clinton is lying. There’s nothing new or particularly noteworthy in that observation. The nature of the lies is a bit unique, one is shocking.
In a town hall on MSNBC with her friend Chris Matthews, Clinton describes her adventures in Libya and the supposed great success of hers in rescuing the people of Libya from the clutches of their leader, Muammar Gaddafi. She invokes the name of Ronald Reagan from many years in the past, as an apparent attempt to gain acceptance for her actions. If Reagan did it too then it must have been the right thing to do, right?
She claims that while Libya isn’t perfect, thanks to her actions they’ve “had two elections that were free and fair, where they voted for moderates.” The fact that the nation is in chaos and those election results have been nullified by the subsequent fighting and actions of other “moderates” who all look a lot like terrorists, including ISIS, doesn’t get mentioned.
She describes the action as “Changing from a dictator who has hollowed out your country to something resembling a functioning state and even hopefully more of a democratic one,” is wrong on both counts. Libya was the envy of much of the world under Gaddafi, with a standard of living that many in the United States would love to be able to have. She turned it into a hellhole and a breeding ground for terrorism.
Clinton also says that “We’ve got to continue to support the Libyan people.” We can’t support everybody and until Clinton got her nose stuck into their business we had no reason to. She describes Libya as “A different kind of calculation and we didn’t lose a single person.”
There are family members of the four Americans killed in Benghazi that will take strong exception to that erroneous statement.
As for her contention that she was justified and left Libya in better condition than she found it, the facts don’t back her up. Here are ten realities of life in Libya under Gaddafi that she doesn’t want us to see, posted by Global Research.
In Libya a home is considered a natural human right
In Gaddafi’s Green Book it states:”The house is a basic need of both the individual and the family, therefore it should not be owned by others”. Gaddafi’s Green Book is the formal leader’s political philosophy, it was first published in 1975 and was intended reading for all Libyans even being included in the national curriculum.
- Education and medical treatment were all free
Under Gaddafi, Libya could boast one of the best healthcare services in the Middle East and Africa. Also if a Libyan citizen could not access the desired educational course or correct medical treatment in Libya they were funded to go abroad.
- Gaddafi carried out the world’s largest irrigation project
The largest irrigation system in the world also known as the great manmade river was designed to make water readily available to all Libyan’s across the entire country. It was funded by the Gaddafi government and it said that Gaddafi himself called it”the eighth wonder of the world”.
- It was free to start a farming business
If any Libyan wanted to start a farm they were given a house, farm land and live stock and seeds all free of charge.
- A bursary was given to mothers with newborn babies
When a Libyan woman gave birth she was given 5000 (US dollars) for herself and the child.
- Electricity was free
Electricity was free in Libya meaning absolutely no electric bills!
- Cheap petrol
During Gaddafi’s reign the price of petrol in Libya was as low as 0.14 (US dollars) per liter.
- Gaddafi raised the level of education
Before Gaddafi only 25% of Libyans were literate. This figure was brought up to 87% with 25% earning university degrees.
- Libya had its own state bank
Libya had its own State bank, which provided loans to citizens at zero percent interest by law and they had no external debt.
- The gold dinar
Before the fall of Tripoli and his untimely demise, Gaddafi was trying to introduce a single African currency linked to gold. Following in the footsteps of the late great pioneer Marcus Garvey who first coined the term “United States of Africa,” Gaddafi wanted to introduce and only trade in the African gold Dinar – a move which would have thrown the world economy into chaos.
The Dinar was widely opposed by the ‘elite’ of today’s society and who could blame them. African nations would have finally had the power to bring itself out of debt and poverty and only trade in this precious commodity. They would have been able to finally say ‘no’ to external exploitation and charge whatever they felt suitable for precious resources. It has been said that the gold Dinar was the real reason for the NATO led rebellion, in a bid to oust the outspoken leader.
Maybe that’s why Clinton is lying about why she attacked Libya; her puppeteers, the international money changers can’t be exposed. Of course, she’s never needed a reason to lie, she just starts talking and it happens naturally. Clinton mentioned Gaddafi having American blood on his hands. Hers are awfully red too.
