Hillary Clinton cannot tell the difference between truth and lies

How do I know? I don't, but it certainly looks that way. She so often tells blatant falsehoods with apparent sincerity, it is hard to think of any alternative explanation.

 

Clinton's latest lying lunacy occurred on Tuesday in Florida when she told the world that she was in New York on 9/11. She wasn't. She was, as a matter of public record, in Washington.

 

Why would any sane person make up such a ridiculous lie? How can she believe it benefits her? I do not know. But it is not the first of her ludicrous lies. Not by a long way.

 

The lies she told about her private server, whilst deplorable, at least made some kind of sense - she was trying to evade prosecution for her criminal behaviour. The lies she tells the electorate in this campaign about her policy positions (like open borders), at least make some kind of sense - she wants their votes. The lies she tells about the Clinton Foundation and pay to play at least make some kind of sense. The lies she told about Benghazi, whilst beyond reprehensible, at least made some kind of party political sense. But where is the sense in lying about being in New York on 9/11?

 

Then again she lied about being under sniper fire in Bosnia when in fact she had been offered some flowers by a little girl. What is the world to make of a woman who apparently cannot tell the difference between truth and lies? I don't know, but I don't think she should be in charge of... well, anything.

    What you point out might be a strategy to build in the public eye, a case for an insanity defense of her crimes and lies.

      Maybe. If one cannot tell the difference between truth and lies, one cannot be guilty of perjury.

        This argument – similar to an insanity plea – is admissible in a US court. Permissiveness is the hallmark of American liberal culture.

    She cannot tell the difference between what she wants to be true and what actually is the truth. For instance in the Clinton’s first run for the presidency, she said she was named Hillary for Sir Edmond Hillary for climbing Mount Everest. That event happened after she was born and named. Again a ridiculous lie.

      Yes, she was six.

        You are on to something here. I think it is a life long problem with Hillary. Her first prominence came when she was in college. I think if we looked at that we would find a few lies there in her valedictory speech.

          She also claimed that she had volunteered to join the Marines.

            I’m sure there is a name for such a syndrome. She is a carrier. She seemed to infect Bill Clinton with the same disease.

              It is called mythomania or pseudologia fantastica.

    Her defense will be insanity.

    1/3 of the electorate doesn’t care what she says as long as the entitlements keep coming.

      Most of these are also Devil worshipers…

        Devil worshippers who like their entitlements

    You do not have enough time or space to outline the depth or volume of her lies. It is clear that she is a serial liar and, for her, there may be no difference. What matters is her agenda and what comes out of her mouth is what will progress that agenda.

    The higher you climb up the ladder in business or politics the more you must bend the truth to maintain your position.We always have a good reason for lying and even when we are confronted
    we wriggle as best we can.
    The UK parliament contains many MPs who have been caught but remember truthful individuals may not exist in any walk of life.

      You sound cynical. There are many truthful, honest, decent people.

    Yes I agree and hope I am one of those but if I were to claim truthfulness as my nature I would be dishonest.
    With us all it depends on the temptation and reward. Some cheat within the law others outside it. We must not assume because a person is dishonest that he or she has no redeeming features. Such an attitude would write people off as wholely bad where as most of us are a patchwork of good and evil.

      There is nothing difficult about being moral. Everyone has moral sense. It is simply a matter of prioritising one’s moral sense over one’s bias, prejudice and interests when these conflict.

    Quite wrong being moral is not easy because self and ambition can cause us to make amoral decisions.
    I agree we are moral beings but we are not blank slates as pointed out by Steven Pinker. We carry a huge evolutionary baggage called survival of the fittest.

      So you deny the human capacity to choose?

    Not at all I’m not a determinist or a Calvinist. My position is similar to St Paul who found himself doing what he should not rather than what he should do.
    It is also beautifully put by Freud who says we are at war with ourselves.
    We know what is right but we ignore it and do what we want. The inner voice of the conscience is often ignored but I believe even the most hardened criminal has that voice within.

      You said: “self and ambition can cause us to make amoral decisions” which is precisely determinist.

    I suspect you are hoping to proclaim absolute freedom for us humans but remember our choices are affected by our age and nationality. Your choice today may not be your choice tomorrow. We are told to resist temptation sometimes we fail that is what being human means. A crocodile cannot commit murder a man or woman can.
