Editor’s Note: In the latest FBI document release we have learned more about the tangled web being weaved by Hillary Clinton and her cronies. As it turns out, the Secretary of State of the United States apparently had no idea how Confidential and Classified documentation was marked. Never mind that the Secretary is one of the few people in this country with the authority to actually determine what can be classified and on what level. And if Clinton’s unsecured email server debacle wasn’t enough, it turns out that the former Secretary misplaced mobile devices and laptops containing highly sensitive material. This is the person now running for the highest office in the land. In the following article Karl Denninger of the Market Ticker succinctly explains why she is clearly not qualified for the job.
The Smell Test
By Karl Denninger
You have got to be kidding me.
The FBI released it’s (heavily-redacted) report yesterday on Hillary’s email server and their investigation. Let me just point out a few things; you can read the whole shebang if you wish (I did); agent notes are usually quite dry, and this was no exception.
Incidentally, if you ever talk or work with these guys this is the sort of “memorialization” to expect them to take; it looks right up the middle of the line in that regard, so leave the conspiracy theories at home.
First, we’re supposed to believe that Hillary required no fewer than eight mobile devices during her tenure as Secretary of State. I don’t know what sort of garbage that is, but they were all BlackBerries, and I will note for the record that BlackBerry makes one of the more-solid pieces of hardware out there when it comes to mobile technology. I still have two Z10s — one of which I keep in my car as an emergency backup phone — that work fine; I had one that blew up due to a manufacturing defect out of warranty (heat sink paste improperly applied) and a second that my kid legitimately got salty water into and shorted it out. My kid, who is far rougher than I am on mobile devices, has had two phones in the last four years, one of which (a Z30) she’s still using. Hillary was SoS for four years and during this time we’re supposed to believe that she destroyed a phone on an average of once every six months.
I make extremely heavy use of my mobile devices and I’ve yet to have one fail in under 2 years. In addition the BlackBerry series that Hillary was using has replaceable batteries, which is the most-common failure (the battery gets weak and thus the runtime gets too short for your preference.) It defies credibility to believe that she had eight sequentially defective units during a four year period, or that she managed to wear them out.
The far more-likely reason that none were recovered is that she lost them; that is, she’s basically incompetent when it comes to handling sensitive information or the devices on which it is stored. If you can’t manage to keep a mobile device in your possession without trashing it over a period of more than six months what sort of qualification do you claim to have to be President of the Untied States?
Second, the record is rife with her repeated claims that she did not understand how to identify and properly classify material as classified. She claimed she did not know what section-markings were when showed to her in the margin and speculated that they denoted alphabetical order.
Not only does she claim to have been ignorant of these procedures she also claimed not to remember having been read in or out of the SAP programs from which material was found on her server — classified programs that are “special access”, are used for information that would lead to immediate and grave harm to the United States (and/or our personnel) if disclosed and which are strict “need to know” in nature. These are programs that are so secret in their nature and have such severe consequences if disclosure occurs that even disclosing their name is forbidden.
All of these claims mean that Hillary either lied or was and is today grossly and outrageously incompetent to hold her position, since The State Department is the origin of a great deal of classified information in the first instance and in fact it is a formal, designated-by-law part of the Secretary of State’s position to both originate and designate same. Even worse, every single day the Secretary of State’s job begins with a classified intelligence briefing!
In other words for those statements not to be a lie Hillary had to lack any sort of capacity to perform her functions as Secretary of State.
I will remind you that a President has even more of an overarching requirement in this regard than does one of his appointees since the Executive is the seat of all foreign policy, and in fact the President receives an even more-expansive classified daily briefing as well!
If Hillary was not lying then she stated, under oath, that she is unqualified for either position by reason of lack of intellectual capacity.
Next up is a flat-out litany of improper acts if there was any classified material in those emails, and we know there was. It was not only held improperly on her server it was moved around on insecure and unrecovered devices, including at least one laptop and a thumb drive. It appears that at no time was any form of encryption or other security used and in fact the devices in question were never documented as being properly cleaned of such data or destroyed. This is an outrageous violation of the protocols involved in handling classified material.
Finally there is evidence in the record that her server was deliberately wiped after a subpoena was served on everyone involved in the server’s maintenance and creation by the US House, including Hillary and her contracted firm. Once you are in possession of such a legal document you have a lawful duty to be “hands off” in terms of any act that might modify any portion of that which is being sought. Tampering with same, whether that’s ordering someone to do it or doing it yourself, is nearly always a criminal offense in the form of either obstruction of justice, evidence tampering or both. As someone who has been subpoenaed in the past (MCSNet used to get them once in a while when I ran the company) I’m very aware of the law in this regard (that’s what lawyers do, and why when you run a company you have real ones you can call and ask questions of — for a price, of course) and my next question has to be why obstruction of justice and/or evidence tampering charges have not been laid given that I’m quite sure both Hillary and contracted firm(s) and persons have at least as good of attorneys on staff and on call as I did.
Folks, there are two possibilities here. Hillary was either lying through her teeth to the FBI, in which case she is not only unqualified to hold any office and should be under indictment right here and now or she’s grossly incompetent to hold either the office of Secretary of State or President by virtue of lack of the intellectual capacity required to rationally discharge the duties of either office.
There is no other interpretation possible.
Karl Denninger is the author of Leverage: How Cheap Money Will Destroy the World in which he discusses the ill-use of leverage and how it is destroying the global economy, as well as where all of this will lead. The result is ugly: the value of everything—including gold—falls, and even personal safety is at risk in a world where there is limited money even for essentials like food and fuel.

Hillary Is a Liar, and She’s Grossly Incompetent
There, I fixed it for you Karl
“Hillary Is Either a Liar Or She’s Grossly Incompetent”.
LMFAO !!! These two descriptions of Hillary are NOT mutually exclusive !!! The proper conjunction is “AND”. 🙂
AND Hillary supporters are either ignorant, anti-American, or freeloaders. No other possible explanation for them.
Or in the ground.
Hillary Is Either a Liar Or She’s Grossly Incompetent: “There Is No Other Interpretation Possible”
“There Is No Other Interpretation Possible”
Sure there is … and I only need one word to interpret her.
If it was a medal, Hillary would wear it as a badge of honor.
If it was a medal, Hillary would wear it as a badge of honor.
I now know why you put the spaces in.
That she would … with diamonds and rubies integrated into the gold medallion … she’s a freak in heat … without any warning ……… uh oh … gotta do it …

OOPS … copy/paste did not comply at the time of posting
I hope Snowden or Guciffer exposes her bull excrement.
Kinda like listening to wwti.
When will people wake up?
Be well all…
eppe, call a truce, please.
He has put up some good info lately.
Just let it slide for now.
After the election, or early October when the UN controls the net, go for it.
Ketchup, I did 3 times.
He broke that 3 times.
What does that make one a liar?
I would hope that this site is prosperous in the time we have to post here.
One day we may not.
If you knew the lies he has posted about me here, you would think different.
I have tried to make this site succeed.
But pricks like wwti makes this site hateful.
Read the archives, it will make sense…
Eppe, I just had an obscene thought. Send WWTI on a blind date with Hillary. Woohoo!
What does Pink Floyd and Dale Earnhart have in common?
Thier last bit hit was the wall.
Been a long time for a joke…
Eppe, LOL! Good one. More jokes, please. We can all use some humor the way things are going right now.
A little humor, but NOT funny when you consider these people are actually allowed to vote!
Please Move The Deer Crossing
Here’s one…..Hilary followers are like Christmas lights: they all hang together, and they either don’t work or aren’t very bright !!!
Snitches get stitches
Eppe, I miss your posts and I don’t even know who you are … please don’t let people’s lies get to you, the good people here know your value.
Been posting 1/7th of my life here.
I tell of life experinces of mine.
And that is only a small part.
One grows tired of being berated wrongfully.
Eppe, you know Braveheart will always be in your corner. I know you’re sick of wwti’s BS and don’t blame you one bit. I’ve never seen any legitimate basis for his attacks on you. It reminds me of my struggles with the trolls. I never really wanted that but I don’t back down from my opponents when it at least looks like they’re really out to get me. I’ve never been a pushover for a troll or any other scum and won’t start being one now. You hang in there, brother. BTW, some more jokes on occasion never hurt, either. Take care.
Brave, I said years ago, I would be proud to have you in my clan.
That still stands.
Having a group like minded preppers is the way to survive.
You have always been a buddy.
Be well sir…
Kennedy Syndrome. It’s where someone believes the rules don’t apply to them.
Incompetent? Nah. Complicit? Absolutely. In every way of helping bring down the country like Hussein Obama, McCain, Ryan, Pelosi and every other neocon.
Both observations are correct…
But you left out the most heinous behaviors of all
And most of all a TRAITOR!
Live Free or Die…the country depends on it
What about severely brain damaged??
She had all these behaviors before she was brain damaged…or I could be wrong and suggest she was brain damaged from birth.
Talon1776, the second part of your statement sounds more likely to me.
Do they even give these people a mental examination? How about a test on their intelligence. How about a grade on what they know about being a leader and what have they accomplished, not just their job but what did you make better. Heaven help us all.
How about a test on the Constitution? You fail you’re automatically disqualified.
None of that applies…
It’s all about an agenda and who best sucks the NWO penis the best.
Hillary Clinton is BOTH a liar and grossly incompetent!!!
Hillary is both a liar and incompetent.
ALL commies are liars and incompetent.
People won’t wake up…about half of our country could care less what she has done as long as they are nursing on the hind teet of the social programs she will fund and will follow through on her promise to appoint judges to the Supreme Court that will erode the Second Amendment.
If she gets elected this country is screwed.
We are probably screwed either way, and if Trump wins you can bet the media won’t let him blame it on the earlier guy for 6 years like they did Obama. I am seriously undecided whether to vote, or whether to care who wins at this point. If I had any confidence that there was a chance I would pull the lever for Trump and hold my nose…but I don’t see a way it could matter a lot.
It’s not either or: it’s both!
The hildebeast has always been a liar and always known what she’s doing. If only she would have an ‘accident’..
Hitler throws a shoe at Hillary Clinton
You are right.
Sixty five days or so and we will see what happens.
Prep for war.
Is every one of those Hillary lovers blind? That woman is too sick to even be running for the highest office in America. She’s proven over and over again she cannot be trusted, she’s a pathetic liar, conniving corrupt criminal, has been involved with so many murders and all were called ‘Suicides’. It doesn’t take a blind person to see just how sick this woman is. She can’t even walk without support on both sides of her so she won’t fall. It’s obvious she is wearing a defibrillator under her over sized jacket. How many more seizures is this woman going to have before she takes her final breath? Come one, be realistic why on earth is she running when she needs to be in a hospital. It won’t be very much longer that she won’t even be able to walk, feed, bathe, or clothe herself without assistance. I know just how mentally sick she is, I am an Army Vet and trained medic. I’ve worked in hospitals and nursing homes. This woman looks like a drug addict. Will some one please call an ambulance and the kindest thing the doctors can do is admit her. It’s cruel and unusual punishment to allow her to get up on that stage and make a fool of herself.
If Hillary wins how long do you think it is before there are bright flashes across the this nation?
How about that Arab Spring and Benghazi, she is hell bent on war and power.
I know she does not like the military but will sacrifice it for HER own ambition and personal advancement.
Does the Surgeon General have anything to say about Hillary’s health?
Prep for War.
Helen, welcome, and I totally agree about the commie bitch.
I had a pretty heated exchange in a restaurant, these people are so closed minded to the emails, Benghazi ect. All they want is their free stuff. They having been voting democrat so long they’re called “yellow dog democrats” !!
Worse, she’s an Illuminati globalist out to destroy ALL nations & subjugate them to their NWO.
HRC is the desired next POTUS by the establishment left AND right globalist NWO criminals, same as was the Kenyan in 2008.
HRC’s foreign policy stance is to blow up the planet. She has made statements to the effect that she would consider a first-strike nuclear attack against Russia or Iran, so if she is allowed in the WH, she would unleash World War III.
Add the fact that she has a criminal record, and the Democrat’s choice is a war criminal. HRC is a threat to all humanity.
At Cabinet level, just about everything is either classified or sensitive. No one can claim with a straight face that this is not true for a Secretary of State.
But I thought it was Hillary’s turn to be POTUS?
Its her turn for jail!
The article’s title is based on a false premise that the two statements are mutually exclusive. “Hillary Is Either a Liar Or She’s Grossly Incompetent: “There Is No Other Interpretation Possible” ”
she is a grossly incompetent liar.
There – fixed it.
My bad. I should think more before I post a title.
Thanks for correcting, you’re totally right! 🙂
In case you missed this little creation of mine….. and yes, you CAN copy, paste and pass on, or add your own lyrics. Just have fun with it!
THE WRECK OF THE HIL’RAY FITZGERALD (Sung to the tune of… oh, never mind!)
The legend lives on, from the Chippewa on down, of the big fake they call Hil’ray Gumi;
Hil’ray’s emails, it is said, were a-bound to be shred, when transparency turns tot’lly gloomy.
With her load of BS ore, 26 thousand emails or more, the Hil’ray server was emptied;
The public and the truth were a bone to be chewed, when the lies of November came early;
Hil’ray’s server was the pride of the of the Communist side, coming back from fund raisers in Wisconsin;
As big liars go, she was bigger than most, with her fibs and deceits well-seasoned.
Including some terms shaking down firms, for money from LA to Cleveland;
then later that night when the BS bells rang outta sight, could it be yet more lies we’d been feelin’?
Her lies in the newswires made a tattle-tale sound, as her techs did their email a-slashin’;
When afternoon came, Hil’ray was fibbing again, with the force of a hurricane west wind.
When suppertime came the IT guy came on deck, sayin’ fellas there’s more lies to feed ya;
at 7 PM Hil’ray’s main campaign caved in, he said fellas is been good to know ya.
Hil’ray’s spin meisters wired in, they had water comin’ in, and her tissue of lies was in peril.
And later that night, when her lights went out of sight, came the wreck of the Hil’ray Fitzgerald.
Does anyone know where the love of truth goes, when her lies turn our faces so dour? The bloggers all say, Hil’ray’d be raking in political hay, if she’dput 15 more bald lies behind her.
Th’server might have split up or it might have capsized; but it sure rolled deep and took water;
And all that remains are the blank emails and the games of Hil’ray and her Wall Streeter bankers
Old Bill Clinton rolls and Hil’ray flings, in the rooms of her ice water mansions. Harry Reid steams an old liars dreams, and Pelosi’s pronouncements ring hollow;
And further below, the lamestream media all know, they take in what the leftists can send them.
But as the big liars go, the public now knows, Hil’ray will lie in November.
In a musty old hall in DC we prayed, for the restoration of the Constitution;
the church bell chimed, it rang 29,000 times for each email “lost” on the Hil’ray Fitzgerald

Yes she is sick, shes a sociopath.
Her voters bring sickness to a new level.
Her Voters/Supporters are nothing but a rabid plague that has diseased America to it’s core.
She’s a grossly incompetent liar.
Did you know Gaddafi was castrated after being raped.
Hillary is backed by Goldman Sucks. They don’t care if she’s braindead. She is just there for show. She’s not even a member of the Tri-lateral commission or Build-a-burger. But her hubby, in name only, is a member.
It’s a man’s world. Don’t kid yourselves.
and so were the the Americans killed in Bengazi!!! they do weird things to us infidels!!! besides just killing us they are sick people!!!
Old proverb: he who lusts after power is not to be trusted with it. That describes the Hildabeast perfectly. Just like the Schwarzfuhrer she lusts after power but when she gets it she misuses it both willfully and incompetently. Their only real skill is running for and getting elected to office. They have no ability to actually do the job required by the office they hold. Trump is not anywhere near the best we could elect as POTUS but at least he knows how to get things done, isn’t bashful about firing incompetents and he’s willing to listen to those who have more expertise in certain things than he does. In other words, he recognizes his limitations. The Hildabeast thinks she can do anything and the suckophantic media promotes that idea.
Schwartzfuhrer. I love that name for O’bummer. Thank You.
Trump will be one of the GREAT Presidents.
To me, it is unbelievable how anyone, including a democrat can vote for such a lying, incompetent, unqualified person such as Hillary Clinton. She would be DANGEROUS!
How could anyone say that he/she never sent nor received any classified emails on her private server for four years as Secretary of State. That is obviously a downright rotten lie. Hillary has lied, lied about her lies, and lied about the lies, which she lied about! She will NOT be MY President!
All we can do is put the word out and hope the world sees her for what she is.
You ladies and gentlemen are insulting the next president of the United States of America!
Hillary Is Either a Liar Or She’s Grossly Incompetent
Same thing was said about the people running the elections back in 2004 about electronic voting.
From the knowledge I have of electronics in light of the “continued existence of electronic vote tabulation devices” I will presume they are lying traitors. They have a pattern of a lying traitor and with the death of on single American, it’s TREASON on top of it.
I think Hillary either has selective amnesia, or she has dementia as well as Parkinsons and is not qualifed mentally or physically to be President1!!
Hillary is both, a liar and incompetent, we have seen her tell lies and her incompetents has been proven by her secretary of state record
There is a third explanation.
There are a class of people in this world who are psychotic personalities, who by virtue of intellect and some crossed wiring in their brains can fake being normal.
Normally a psychotic personality is antisocial to the point of being unable to function in society. Our prisons and mental wards are full of them.
Just like there are functional alcoholics who can fake being normal, there are functional psychotics. They lack empathy, but can fake it like a good actor. There are serious books written on this topic.
When average people see people like Obama and Hillary, but can’t believe what they are seeing. Yes folks, it’s real, people in high places can be as nutty as a fruitcake. In fact they seek this kind of power. History is full of psychopaths who lead major conquests of the world.
I find Hillary more terrifying than Obama.
When Obama turned over most of his government to people he appointed as Czars, with no question from the press or congressional review, I knew it was over. If the next president and congress don’t plug the holes, America is done.
Plan twice, prep once –
Well said! Hitlery will be like the Kenyan on steroids.

PTPO,Good post,fits perfectly.Think about the fact,how many people involved with the Clinton’s have ACCIDENTS OR SUICIDE THEMSELVES?And the pace has picked up recently!
I say she’s pure EVIL!!Fits your analogy.
What don’t understand is why nobody who’s family member was killed by these people,hasn’t gotten at least one of them yet it would cost dearly.Bullet for a bullet.
They better be glad it’s not my son or daughter!!
Hitlery Rotten and all her minions need to ride the Mare of Steel.
Both. And she’s a basket case too!
