Clinton Strangely Silent on Foreign Policy

It’s the subject that separates the men from the boys. Or, to put it more fairly in these politically correct days, the winners from the also-rans. Want to prove to the voters that you should have access to The Button? You’d better have a good grasp of the globe. You’d better be able to explain how the U.S. will interact with the world when you’re calling the shots. And as the heir-in-waiting for Obama’s Oval Office, Hillary Clinton owes America a glimpse at her stance on foreign policy.

Instead, we hear mostly silence.

In an era where the president makes reckless deals with a rogue nation, has little response to Chinese hackers, and thinks the little problem in Iraq and Syria will just magically solve itself, it doesn’t take a genius to impress Americans in the realm of foreign policy. We are starved for leadership of almost any kind. Yet even with so many opportunities to shine, Clinton seems reluctant to address anything beyond America’s borders.

It’s not a matter of ignorance; Clinton may not have a long list of accomplishments, but she has been in the mix for quite some time. She knows the players (after all, she had to know who to hit up for Clinton Foundation donations, didn’t she?) and she knows the game. One can then surmise that her silence is due to something else. Could it be that she intends to use Obama’s term as a blueprint? Or does she see foreign policy as a kind of electric rail that she would be better off avoiding until it’s absolutely necessary?

What we have heard from her thus far has given few clues as to the direction she’ll take if elected. She has remained firmly grounded in soft platitudes that could literally mean almost anything. In her official campaign kickoff, she said she would call for her country “to maintain our leadership for peace, security, and prosperity.” That sounds nice and all, but it’s hard to imagine a presidential candidate advocating for war, insecurity, and poverty. Either way, it doesn’t mean much without some specifics.

Clinton’s record suggests a more hawkish take on foreign policy than Obama’s, but her specific vision for Iran and ISIS has yet to be unveiled. ISIS, in particular, represents a threat that needs to be addressed by all the major candidates. Obama isn’t going to do anything about them, so we’d better start there. Clinton said that America was “better-equipped” to deal with that threat than any other country, but that’s hardly a policy. That’s merely a fact. And considering how we’re dealing with that threat now, it’s apparent that “better” equipped does not mean “well” equipped.

Clinton’s critics have warned that a vote for her is a vote for a third Obama term. Domestically, that’s a given. When it comes to facing America’s challenges overseas, though, Clinton has a chance to set herself apart from the current administration. Whether she actually will or not, we’ll have to wait and see.

  1. She should be. What can she say? Foreign policy when she was Secretary of State was an unmitigated disaster!

  2. She sure can’t embrace Obama’s foreign-policy. He has none. And we saw in Benghazi what happens when she is involved.

  3. disqus_CeZmTpgh9W

    I can only repeat the hillercow’s disgusting comment on Benghazi. “What does it matter now?”

    • Yes that classic statement by Hillary proves me right, ” It’s better to remain silent and thought a fool than to speak up and remove all doubt”.

    • People matter and lives matter. It wouldn’t matter to her because she did what she did (or actually didn’t do) and so did everyone involved and they can just put all that behind them and move on the next evil action they commit. The American people will NEVER FORGET and we will not move on.

  4. Could it be she has the same as our 1/2 breed in office right now

  5. Why is the White House NOT putting berghdal on trial for DESERTION????????????

    • Nothing negative until obomber is gone! Why did it take 4 years to finally admit the Fort Hood shootings were a terrorist act? Why is clinton not behind bars? Why is lois lerner not behind bars?

      • Behind bars? We need to do everything that we can to make sure that she is never behind the desk in the oval office.

    • Obama probably plans to pardon Berghdal when he finally departs the White House which will not be soon enough !!!!

    • The military tries deserters. Obama’s Pentagon should have already had the trial but Obama pulls the strings in the Pentagon just like he does in every other government agency. That is why he fired all the Senior Military, Generals and Admirals, Flag Officers and NCOs after they returned victorious from Iraq in 2011. He wanted people left he could control and that’s what he got.

  6. She was strangely quiet on foreign policy even when she was ACTING secretary of state! She is clueless! Absolutely CLUELESS!

    • Michael Dennewitz

      That bitch is nothing more than our enemy. Millions of people like myself will NEVER, EVER forget Benghazi !! She is totally responsible for those men losing their lives!!!

      • Michael, calm down! Nothing positive can be accomplished when pissed! Benghazi? Yes sir! I agree, someone or someones in washington deserves to pay with their life! Yes sir! We may never see that day. When we will see that day will be when the American people take back our nation! Unfortunately, it’s too late for that! I’m just speaking TRUTH!

        • Michael Dennewitz

          Those guys DID NOT deserve to die. And I’m even further convinced that the HNIC purposely had Chris Kyle “taken out” because he just knew that HE would be Chris’ next target….

          • You are definitely right about the four men in Benghazi who died to cover up criminal action. I don’t know about Chris Kyle but I have to honestly say, Michael, nothing that happens in this country surprises me anymore. I find the dawning of each new day to be a day I wonder what Obama will come up with today to keep his “agenda” moving forward.

          • Research “Extortion 17”! It will make your head explode. bigger than Benghazi! News silent!

        • You remind me of Christians who say we cannot ever have revival again. To say we cannot take back our Nation is to say you are afraid to try against insurmountable odds. Look at Israel in the six day war. All born-again believers in Christ praying can accomplish anything: “If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.” (2 Chronicles 7:14). If we are willing, we can take back our Nation. Are you willing to start right Christians? And don’t stop until we have our Nation back! It is not impossible.

        • Michael Dennewitz

          And you are totally correct sir! I wasn’t fighting on the ground, but our ship almost sank, taking soldiers and equipment to Nam. I don’t know why, but deep in the back of my mind I sensed something then, while we were loading body bags to bring back. Yes, I always loved the fact that the US had always been the “don’t mess with me” country, but now look at us. The HNIC goes overseas and bows to these countries, telling them out loud that we are not a threat anymore. But what upsets me the most is the fact that the repooplicans have sucked asses enough to gain control, then turned sissy-assed and stabbed us ALL in the back. The only thing that could possibly save this country right now would be an expert sniper, I’m convinced of it…Soros and his queer puppet Ovomit are on one mission only, to totally destroy everything our great flag stands for! GOD HELP AMERICA!

          • Research “Extortion 17”! Bigger than Benghazi. Yet you’ve more than likely heard nothing about it.

          • It almost looks like its a game to them. They couldn’t care less how many lives they ruin.

  7. There is one thing for sure the bitc- does not like what America stands for any more than obozo. She or it is a scum bag parasite that will continue to destroy America from with in. Its just to bad most new media back her/it up.

  8. democrapic liberal scum support the destruction of clinton’s emails that support clinton’s/obama’s terrorist connections in foreign policy

  9. I guess it is better to appear stupid rather than open your mouth and remove all doubt

  10. She is a phony-pure and simple. Her mother was a hamster and her father smelled of elderberries.

  11. Clinton knows zip about foreign policy. Obama has none. The name of the game is “PAYOLA!” Keep them bucks coming! Hillary was just a perpetual tourist as SECSTATE and pimp for Bill and others!

  12. Hillary is quiet on foreign policy because she never had a foreign policy and Obama still does not have a foreign policy…. I cannot think of one accomplishment Hillary ever developed while in office… Except she learned how to lie from Obama & her husband, Bill Clinton… NO MORE LIARS IN THE WHITE HOUSE !!!!!

  13. What is “strangely”?…..it would be abnormal to have her say anything honest or in a direct response to the question. She is what she is: A LIAR,….DEMENTED FOOL,….LESBIAN,….you really want her for president?
    Do some homework and find out just how corrupt this incompetent fool is and how much blood the clintonistas have on their hands. She should not seek the presidency,…she should worry about her fate in the lake of fire.

  14. Hillary Clinton is your typical self serving liberal democrat, any talk on the mere mention of foreign policy will only give people the opening to ask questions she has never answered cause after all this time what difference does it really make. Seems she doesn’t feel she has to be accountable for anything. Everything about this woman is phony, even when her supporters staged a phony shoe throwing incident at one of her events, she looked like an utter fool, standing there with her eyes closed knowing the shoe thrown wouldn’t hit her, but also not even trying to make it look like was trying to dodge it and then asking what it had been?

  15. That’s because she knows nothing about foreign policy,

  16. After watching this the other day, I decided the Mob history was small potatoes compared to the Clintons….unbelievable!

  17. What difference does it make now?

    • It makes a big difference to many people, especially the families of those people who were butchered and tortured in Benghazi to cover up a crime that had been committed by heinous criminals.

      • Apparently, you didn’t get that this was a “sarcastic” post intended to remind people of Hillary’s answer to Congress on this issue.

  18. THE PEOPLE OF THAT AME BAPTIST CHURCH ARE THE FINEST GROUP OF PEOPLE IN THIS COUNTRY. I WATCHED CNN TODAY TRYING TO STIR THE FORCES OF DIVISION. EVEN THE BLACK INTERVIEWER TRYING TO EASE INTO THE RACE GAME WAS STOPPED DEAD IN HIS TRACKS. THE BROTHER OF A 55 YEAR OLD SAINT AND MARTYR SAID HIS SISTER WAS WITH GOD AND HE WAS JOYFUL KNOWING SHE WAS WITH FAMILY IN HEAVEN.THIS WASN’T A RACE CRIME THIS WAS THE DEVIL ATTACKING GOD’S FAMILY. WE ARE ALL GOD’S FAMILY. GOD BLESS THE PEOPLE OF SOUTH CAROLINA. AL SHARPTON GO BACK TO COMMUNIST HQ AND TELL NOTHING BUT COMMUNISTS NBC, GOD LIVES AND AMERICA IS STRONGER.

    • This should be a very loud message to America. These people had to face one of the worst, if not the worst tragedy their community has ever had to bear and they did it in the manner true Americans do it. Obama tried to politicize it but he couldn’t because they wouldn’t allow him. I don’t know whether he forced himself in or if he was invited to deliver the eulogy at the Pastor’s funeral this week but I do hope he can do it respectfully without trying to incite violence. We united after 9/11 and did what we needed to do to heal as Americans. Charleston, SC is doing just that. They have always been a united city they are the EXAMPLE for the country of how tragedy and heartbreak are handled. Come together, ask God’s guidance and direction and keep fighting for right!!!

  19. Michael Dennewitz

    When she got fire in her fugly face and screamed, “What difference does it make,” that’s when I gave all three of my TVs to Goodwill. I cannot bear to even look at that poor excuse of a woman!!!

  20. Billary has nothing to say…………….. She said it all on Bengazi!
    We can’t believe anything she says anyway. What goes around comes around and its coming back very quickly forthe ole gal. She won’t even get the nod.

  21. hillarys foreign policy: turn a blind eye and after ask what difference does it make now

  22. IF YOU ARE STUPID ABOUT A SUBJECT ,YOU KEEP YOUR MOUTH SHUT11

  23. She has never had a foreign policy and Obama certainly has none and never intended to have one. She can’t comment on anything she’s never done and has no idea how to do. She and Obama have one thing for sure in common, they refuse to listen to sane and Pro-American people. They chose to “go it alone”, operate behind closed doors, have secret conferences, conduct business on personal computers so that their trail of criminal activity can be concealed. I keep hearing that Hillary’s server has been wiped clean. Anyone who has ever used a computer and is literate in the use of the computer knows that you can delete from your computer, you can empty your recycle bin and you can delete your browsing cookies and your history from your computer but the information is still there. It takes a technical expert to retrieve the information but it is still there and can be retrieved. The only way to destroy a computer hard drive is to destroy it totally and I’m sure she hasn’t done that. We, as law-abiding Americans could be ordered to surrender anything we have or be arrested if there is even a hint we might have done something dishonest. She cannot “refuse” to surrender that server that she conducted the business of the United States State Department on!!!!!!! She doesn’t have that right. The only reason she is getting away with it is that we are allowing it. Obama is protecting her for sure but that’s because information there would like incriminate him also as if we need anything else. These people are humans, just like us and we treat them as if they are monsters that are going to destroy us if we bring them to justice. Something very wrong with that picture.

  24. And NOW! The emails are coming out. She is going to get chopped here very soon.
