The United States Senate confirmed Hillary Clinton's nomination as the new Secretary of State yesterday. Upon her confirmation, she defiantly uttered that "all options are still on the table" in regard to disarming an ever nuclear-powerede Iran. A top National Intelligence Estimate report by the Bush administration in November 2007 concluded that Iran ended its nuclear weapons program in 2003 in the face of pressure from Washington. Yet, Hillary in her new executive post yearns for a war on Iran and openly shrieks the war whoop to the delight of congratulatory cheers heaped upon her by the elite Senate and most of all, the Press.
In April of 2008 in a nationally televised interview with ABC, Clinton vowed that if Iran attacked Israel, the United States in turn "would totally obliterate" Iran.
Indeed, diplomatic comments from America's top diplomat.
But while Tehran's possession of a peaceful nuclear power program may be "unacceptable", Clinton has no qualms about the nuclear weapon capabilities of Russia, China, India, Pakistan, Israel and North Korea.
The imperial hypocrisy is seen with all of its stupidity at face value. The Madame of State is smiply playing a bigger, more grandiose version of her childhood doll games. At least it seems so to her.
Meanwhile, opponents of Clinton have accused her of a "pay to play" scandal in that her husband's foundation, the William J. Clinton Foundation is accepting large sums of money as donations in order for foreign governments to curry favor and buy out the U.S. Secretary of State as a mouthpiece. Noted donations to the William J. Clinton Foundation include $25,000,000 from Saudi Arabia, $1,000,000 from the Confederation of Indian Industry and $25,000 from the infamous private military group, Blackwater, whose employees now face criminal charges for a shooting rampage on civilians in Baghdad which killed 17 last autumn in Iraq.
In addition, Mrs. Clinton has unconstitutionally been oathed into office, Article One, Section Six of the U.S. Constitution provides that,
"No Senator or Representative shall, during the Time for which he was elected, be appointed to any civil Office under the Authority of the United States which shall have been created, or the Emoluments whereof shall have been increased during such time; and no Person holding any Office under the United States, shall be a Member of either House during his Continuance in Office."
On January 4th 2008, an executive order by President Bush increased the pay of the Secretary of State. Hillary Clinton presided in the United States Senate at that time. This order thus makes her ineligible for the position.
