“Shattered” is a new book about the failures of Hillary’s presidential campaign. One of the authors has appeared on shows that like you to think they have a conservative bent and a few that actually do. I looked forward to reading this book for a rainy Sunday afternoon’s entertainment. I thought it would be fun to dance all over the facts that brought about Hillary’s political grave, schadenfreude with ice cream and chocolate on top. Sadly, there are many democrat narratives throughout the book. Like the innumerable Clinton scandals, only a partial list is needed to provide more than substantial evidence.
The following examples are taken from location 101 on the Kindle copy of the book. Glad I didn’t spend the money for a hard copy, I don’t have a wood burning fireplace.
“She collected nearly 65.9 million votes, more than any other republican in history, just 64,8222 fewer than Barack Obama in 2012, and almost 3 million more than Donald Trump. And she did it while facing a set of trials and tribulations unlike any other American in campaign history: a partisan congressional investigation; a primary opponent who attacked her character; a rogue FBI director; the rank misogyny of her Republican rival; a media that scrutinized her every move while failing to get that Republican rival to turn over his tax returns; and even a Kremlin-based campaign to defeat her.
Trials and tribulations unlike any other American campaign in history….
Lincoln, FDR, Reagan and Nixon all had tougher roads to the Whitehouse. Two out of 4 of them had huge wars to deal with, and Nixon and Reagan both had the full bias of the media out to destroy them. Reagan like Trump, did not have the support of his own party. Most of Hillary’s biggest problems were of her own making; Benghazi, her illegal server leaving our national security at high risk, her past attacks on the victims of Bill’s acts of sexual violence. Lets not leave out her using of the Clinton Foundation to launder influence buying payments or that Hillary is not at all well liked.
…a primary opponent who attacked her character
What primary candidate of either party never attacked their opponents’ character?
….a partison congressional investigation
Just because its partisan doesn’t mean it isn’t warranted. Hillary’s private server was just that, a SERVER. Our national security information was served up on a silver platter for all our enemies to see on demand.
….a rogue FBI Director
Its is more truthful to say that the rogue appointee in the executive branch was Loretta Lynch, who was never going to prosecute Hillary.
…..rank misogyny of her Republican Rival
If it wasn’t for immigration to America, 45 would not have married two of his wives. Where’s the misogyny?
….Media scrutinized her every move…
This is a joke, right?
….Kremlin-based campaign to defeat her
There is simply no proof of this. All that is known is that the Democrat party operation was phished, it wasn’t even hacked. Where the Russians had no luck getting into the Republican campaign website.
There is more to dispute in just that paragraph provided, but as I’ve tried to say above, enough is all you need. These statements are just in one paragraph in the intro! Half way through the book and the pattern of using a democrat party line slant continues throughout.
The authors have bent over backwards to award deference to Hillary, which would be fine if they used facts. If they had left out the propaganda and the Trump bashing, perhaps “Shattered” would be credible.
As it is, I’d save my money for Mark Levin’s next book.
