Chris Christie Lays Out The Case Against Hillary

by William Teach | July 20, 2016 7:43 am

Chris Christie (I’m no big fan) gave perhaps one of the best speeches against electing Hillary Clinton so far. At the end of the day, that’s very much what this “dumpster fire” election is about: making sure Hillary is not president. For those who are #NeverTrump or I’m-not-sures, we aren’t quite sure what Trump really truly stands for nor what he will do. But, we know what Hillary stands for and what she will do

(ABC News[1]) Chris Christie put on a rollicking show trial of Hillary Clinton at the Republican Convention Tuesday night — leading the audience in Cleveland to shout “guilty!” over and over again in response to his allegations about the former secretary of state.

New Jersey’s governor, a former federal prosecutor, allowed the audience at the Quicken Loans arena to play jury as he presented an “indictment” to them.

“We’re going to present the facts to you, as a jury of her peers, both in this hall and in living rooms around our nation,” the former 2016 presidential candidate said in opening his address to the Cleveland convention Tuesday night.

“I’m going to render a case on the facts against Hillary Rodham Clinton,” he continued.

How did he do this?

Christie made the case that Clinton’s character and her record as secretary of state disqualify her for the nation’s top job, specifically accusing her of “ruining Libya,” being a terrorist apologist for not naming an al-Qaeda affiliate in Nigeria a terrorist group for two years and linking that to the “Missing Girls,” and turning previous words of praise for Syrian President Bashar al-Assad against her.

“She fights for the wrong people, she never fights for us,” he said.

Christie went on to criticize the nuclear deal with Iran, Clinton’s dealings with Russia, and called her a “coddler of the brutal Castro brothers” in criticizing the Obama administration’s reopening of diplomatic relations with Cuba.

We must ask this question: Hillary Clinton, as an awful judge of the character of a dictator-butcher in the Middle East guilty or not guilty? In Iran, she led the negotiations that brought about the worst nuclear deal in history.

Let me be clear: America and the world are measurably less safe and less respected because of the Iran deal Hillary helped cut.

Period. After she launched those negotiations, she became the biggest cheerleader for it at the end.

A deal that will lead to a nuclear Iran, an Israel that will be less safe and secure and much more dangerous Middle East.

Hillary Clinton, as an inept negotiator of the worst nuclear arms deal in American history guilty or not guilty?

It’s well worth the read and the time to watch the video. Just a little more excerpt

We cannot promote someone to Commander-in-Chief who has made the world a more violent and dangerous place with every bad judgment she has made.

We cannot make the Chief Law Enforcement Officer of the United States someone who has risked America’s secrets and lied about this to Congress and the American people. (snip)

We know exactly what four years of Hillary Clinton will bring: all the failures of the Obama years, but with less charm and more lies. It is our obligation to stop Hillary Clinton now and never let her within 10 miles of the White House again.

She’s been pretty much wrong about everything during her time as Secretary of State. Her supporters cannot really point to any successes, nor during her time as a Senator. It is very easy to point to her failures, because they are abundant.

One thing he, and so many others have missed, is that Hillary will potentially have a chance to choose several Supreme Court justices in the first four years. You can’t be quite sure who Trump will pick, despite his list, but, you can bet Hillary will choose a hardcore leftist.

Hillary, though, tried to swing back

If you think Chris Christie can lecture anyone on ethics, we have a bridge to sell you. https://t.co/c1nkZojJFL[3] #RNCinCLE[4]

First, no one has been able to produce solid evidence against Christie. Second, playing games with a bridge pales in comparison to propping up Assad, Benghazi, the Iran deal, blowing off the Arab Spring, and so much more.
