WTF Quote Of The Day: Hillary Clinton Edition

Via Jacob Sullum, here’s a truly bizarre comment from Hillary Clinton during an interview with Mexican media:

Maerker: In Mexico, there are those who propose not keeping going with this battle and legalize drug trafficking and consumption. What is your opinion?

Clinton: I don’t think that will work. I mean, I hear the same debate. I hear it in my country. It is not likely to work. There is just too much money in it, and I don’t think that—you can legalize small amounts for possession, but those who are making so much money selling, they have to be stopped.

Hillary, perhaps you’re spending too much time saving the world to realize this, but the reason there’s so much money in the illegal drug trade, is because it’s illegal. Think about that one for a second.

  • Brad Warbiany

    Note how she steers the question. Maerker asks that perhaps we should “legalize drug trafficking and consumption”. She steers the question ONLY to small scale possession/consumption.

    Yes, Hillary, if you keep the distribution channels 100% illegal, it won’t solve the black market aspects. That’s why he asked about legalizing drug trafficking!

    I honestly wonder if she was deliberate here or if it was an oversight — if her brain simply couldn’t imagine that someone were asking about legalizing both sides and not just consumption.

    LOL…. Really Hillary?! She says “but those who are making so much money selling, they have to be stopped” Her concern is stopping them from making so much money… Really? If small amounts are okay with her then make it legal and tax it like everything else. Liberals just aren’t thinking people these days.

    I was looking for an article from around 2009 in which Hillary Clinton actually put pressure on the Mexican government to cover up the investigation of the plane that crashed with over 3 tons of cocaine aboard coming from South America with that coke after doing a rendition flight to Guantanamo.Both Bill and Hillary went from legal huge debts to huge unexplained offshore accounts after their stay at the White House.In truth their offshore accounts in the Caymans and probably in terrorist money laundering Sheik Mohamed Al Rashid bin Maktoum’s Dubai or whwerever else should be confiscated
    and an investigation of their criminal activities undertaken.Unfortunately Barack Osama Obama is part of their and the CIA’s and Israel’s criminal gang and until they are ousted it will only get worse.
    After all how much heroine was being produced in Afghanistan under the Taliban and how much is being produced and sent to Europe and the U.S.under W Bush CIA and now UNDER Barack Osama and Hillary Clinton and the CIA’s reign of terror !?
    Their cover up of the rendition plane as well as the Jeb Bush and Homeland Security connected Skyway Communications of Lakeland,Florida and Royal Sons holding company continues to be covered up.
    Hillary promises or lies about bringing traffickers to justice but unfortunately it appears that she is one.Skyway Communications is also a stock fraud against American investors that bought those DC 9s with that fraud and the SEC OF EX CHAIR CHRIS COX AND NOW MARY SCHAPIRO ARE GUILY OF AIDING COCAINE TRAFFICKING AS WELL.

    [cia-drugs] Hillary Clinton flew on plane owned by company linked to CIA renditions and organized crime

    Hillary Clinton flew on plane owned by company linked to CIA renditions and organized crime publication date: Oct 15, 2007 Previous | Next October 15, 2007 — Hillary Clinton flew on plane owned by company linked to CIA renditions and organized crime On September 24, 2007, a Gulfstream II (tail number N987SA) crashed landed in Yucatan, Mexico with 3.3 metric tons (3.7 tons) of cocaine on board.

    The plane had recently been sold to Donna Blue Aircraft, Inc. of Coconut Creek, Florida, a firm owned by two Brazilians, and re-sold, shortly before the crash, to two Florida businessmen. N987SA had also flown patterns to and from Guantanamo Bay similar to those flown by CIA rendition aircraft Before being sold to Donna Blue, the Gulfstream had been owned by Air Rutter International, a firm with offices in Garden City, New York; Long Beach and Irvine, California, whose owner is Arik Kislin, the son of Sam Kislin. N987SA was owned by Kislin’s business partner, William Achenbaum, an owner, along with Arik Kislin, of Manhattan’s Hotel Gansevoort.

    Air Rutter leased out the aircraft. WMR has learned that another Air Rutter Gulfstream II (tail number N216RR) has flown presidential candidate Hillary Rodham Clinton, including a January 2007 stop in Des Moines, Iowa. The plane, which has a crew of 3, including a jump seat for a flight attendant, and can handle up to 13 passengers, has a fully galley, a private lavatory, plush leather seats, conference seats and table, CD/DVD entertainment system, a 21 inch monitor, satellite telephone system, and even an espresso machine.

    On October 9, 2007, WMR reported: Arik’s uncle, Semyon (Sam) Kislin, a member of the New York City Economic Development Board and immigrant from Odessa, has poured substantial political donations into the past campaigns in New York of Hillary Clinton and [Rudolph] Giuliani. He has also contributed to past campaigns of New York Senator Charles Schumer, former Republican Senator Alphonse D’Amato, and President Bill Clinton. The Center for Public Integrity has previously reported that a 1996 Interpol report connected Sam Kislin’s Trans Commodities, Inc. to two reputed Uzbek mobsters, Lev and Mikhail Chernoy.

    The Interpol connected Kislin’s firm to the Chernoys’ fraud and embezzlement schemes. Kislin confirmed that Mikhail Chernoy had been employed by his Trans Commodities firm. The Chernoy brothers are citizens of Israel. [The Chenoys have been linked to a worldwide empire of front companies and corporate shells in Monaco, the Bahamas, Cyprus, Switzerland, Ukraine, Kazakhstan, Israel, the Cayman Islands, Western Samoa, London, Isle of Man, Bermuda, British Virgin Islands, Brighton Beach (Brooklyn), Liechtenstein, and Vanuatu].

    Between 1994 and 1997, Sam Kislin and his wife Ludmila, gave Giuliani $14,250 in contributions. In 1997, after Giuliani maxed out on his GOP contributions, $9.7 million, Kislin donated $30,000 to Giuliani through the Liberal Party, the other ticket on which Giuliani was running for re-election as mayor. In May 1999, Sam Kislin co-chaired a Giuliani Senate race fundraiser at the Sheraton Hotel and Towers in New York. The gathering raised $2.1 million for Giuliani’s aborted senate campaign. Arik Kislin contributed $1000 to Giuliani’s 1995 mayoral campaign and his Blonde Management shared office space with Sam Kislin’s Trans Commodities. Sam Kislin, his wife Ludmila, their son David, and daughter Regina gave $2000 to Schumer’s 1998 Senate campaign.

    Sam also gave Schumer’s opponent, D’Amato, $1000. Sam Kislin is also a prominent supporter of the United Jewish Appeal and Israel. Arik Kislin gave Hillary Clinton $4000 in 2006, specifically on Sept. 12, 2006. That same day an Olya Kislin also donated $4000 to Hillary Clinton. On October 1, 2007, the New York Post reported that an ex-employee of Air Rutter, Mark Billey, subsequently arrested on federal child sex charges, said he noted a number of armed U.S. Marshals at Air Rutter’s facilities in Long Beach, however, given the connection between the firm and Clinton, the federal agents may have been part of Senator Clinton’s Secret Service detail.

    Clinton has made several fundraising visits to the Los Angeles area over the past year. On October 9, WMR also reported that Arik Kislin is associated with another airline company, Skookum Air, Inc. Government records indicate that Clinton’s N216RR was owned by Skookum Air, as well as Air Rutter International, with the actual registered owner listed as GS-II Holdings, LLC, a firm registered in Delaware with offices listed at 35 E. 21st St. Suite 500, New York, NY. On October 4, 2007, when Senator Clinton visited Chicago to attend a “Republicans for Hillary” fundraiser at the Hyatt Regency, N216RR was parked at Chicago Midway Airport.

    Recently, N216RR has been put up for sale.

    U.S., Argentina in Tussle Over Seized Cargo
    FEBRUARY 15, 2011

    BUENOS AIRES—A diplomatic row between Argentina and the U.S. escalated on Tuesday, with Argentina rebuffing Washington’s demands to return communications and other equipment that the South American country confiscated.

    Argentina accuses the U.S. of trying to sneak in firearms, communications and surveillance equipment and narcotics in an Air Force cargo plane that arrived last week for a U.S.-sponsored hostage-rescue course for Argentine police officers. U.S. officials called those allegations preposterous on Tuesday and said they were merely bringing in equipment to be used during the training sessions.

    Argentine officials say some of the materials weren’t included in documents submitted by the U.S. Embassy before the plane’s arrival, a charge U.S. officials adamantly deny.

    “I want to emphasize the need for our equipment to be returned promptly by the government of Argentina regardless of what motivated this inexplicable behavior,” Paul Stockton, the assistant secretary of defense for the Americas, said on Tuesday.

    Argentine officials, however, responded the U.S. needed to learn that Argentina has its own laws that need respect.

    “Just imagine what would have happened if an Argentine aircraft had taken the same kind of material to the United States. [The Argentines] would all be in Guantanamo in orange overalls,” Anibal Fernandez, President Cristina Kirchner’s cabinet chief, said in an interview with local broadcaster Radio La Red…..

    Drug trafficking connected terrorist U.S.Secretary of State Hillary Clinton has
    been prying into Argentina President Cristina Fernandez de
    Kirchner’s personal life previously.Why doen’t Hillary answer some
    question about her involvemnt with grug trafficking polanes and their
    owners ?
    Could any of this have to do with Argentina’s
    siding with Palestinians over Israel ? Hillary is a known prostitute
    of Zionists and Jewish mafiosi after all.

    WikiLeaks on Latin America:Clinton asks personal questions about
    Argentina President Cristina Fernandez de Kirchner

    A secret U.S. diplomatic cable published by Wikileaks reveals requests
    by Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton on the mental health and
    decision-making style of Argentine President Cristina Fernandez de

    The cable bearing Clinton’s name was dated Dec. 31, 2009, and sent to
    the U.S. Embassy in Buenos Aires. It asks:

    How is Cristina Fernandez de Kirchner managing her nerves and anxiety?
    How does stress affect her behavior toward advisors and/or her
    decisionmaking? What steps does Cristina Fernandez de Kirchner or her
    advisers/handlers, take in helping her deal with stress? Is she taking
    any medications? Under what circumstances is she best able to handle
    stresses? How do Cristina Fernandez de Kirchner’s emotions affect her
    decisionmaking and how does she calm down when distressed?

    The cable also inquires about the health and decision-making style of
    Nestor Kirchner, Fernandez’s husband and the former president. Nestor
    Kirchner died suddenly late last month. In the 2009 cable, questions
    then turn to the interpersonal dynamic between the two Kirchners.

    “How do Cristina Fernandez de Kirchner and Nestor Kirchner divide up
    their day?” it asks. “On which issues does Cristina Fernandez de
    Kirchner take the lead and which issues does she leave to Nestor

    Clinton made no direct reference to any specific leaked cables in
    statements she made on Monday at the State Department in Washington,
    and no statements in response to the leaked cable were reported Monday
    from Fernandez de Kirchner in Argentina.

    Your comments are becoming spam. Keep it on topic, please. And no, conspiracy theorizing about Hillary is not on topic.

  • Tony Ryals

    Go ahead and argue the point that Hillary Clinton’s use of that plane with its previous international and South American cocaine trafficking connections was because of lack of ‘intelligence’ or that she was just set up.I’d say that if she is that stupid she should resign from her position as Secretary of State ASAP or Barck Obama should remove her.
    No wonder she didn’t notice that the convicted Israeli money launderer Menachem Atzmon and his ICTS International were the ones guarding Logan Boston airport on 9/11/01 where according to the U.S. government official story the two planes that hit her constituents’ WTC in NYC and killed nearly 3000 originated from.And they also allowed,or more so aided and abetted, Richard Reid ‘the shoe bomber’ to board an American Airlines flight from De Gusalle Airport with his ‘shoe bomb’ a month later even though they had already allowed him to fly from Schiphol to Israel before that ! And Hillary didn’t notice that either ! And on Christmas 2009 the Nigerian ‘crotch bomber’ was allowed to board flight 253 from Schiphol Amsterdam to Carl Levin’s Detroit with his crotch bomb.And any fool can do a little research and discover that Menachem Atzmon and his ICTS that guarded Logan on 9/11 was in control as they still are of Schiphol when the Islamic ‘crotch bomber’ boarded that plane.And there is good reason to believe they were at the Moscow airport in January when another ‘Islamic terrorist’ killed 35 or so people there and Vladmir Putin and Dmitry Medvedev know this as well as Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton.
    If I had any say in Argentina I don’t think I’d let any U.S.government plane or airline land in my country and certainly Menachem Atzmon and and ICTS wouldn’t guard the airport !
    Do you know why we have conspiracy laws in the first place ?! The outrage is that we don’t have a government and DOJ to prosecute under our conspiracy laws.
    If you are an American it is scary how little you know.
