Note from the Saker: normally I don’t post articles from the Ziomedia, but this is simply too good, and too important, to pass. So hold your nose, here goes:
Why America Is Exceptional
by Hillary Clinton for Time mag
‘America is indispensable—and exceptional—because of our values’
There’s always been something special about the United States of America. President Abraham Lincoln called us the “last, best hope of earth.” President Ronald Reagan said we are a “shining city on a hill.” And Robert Kennedy called us a great, unselfish, compassionate country.
I couldn’t agree more.
If there’s one core belief that has guided and inspired me every step of my career in public service, it’s this: the U.S. is an exceptional nation. And when you add up all our advantages, it’s clear we’re indispensable too—a nation all others look to for leadership.
America is indispensable in part because we have the greatest military in history, with the best troops, training and technology. And it’s essential we do everything we can to support our men and women in uniform, and our veterans.
America is also indispensable because of our network of alliances, built up with decades of diplomacy. Russia and China can’t begin to compare. Our allies amplify our power, aid our defense and stand with us in good times and bad, like when NATO declared 9/11 to be an attack against all its members. Walking away from our alliances now would be a dangerous mistake.
America is indispensable because we have the largest, most dynamic economy in the world. Our workers can outinnovate and outcompete anyone in the world. And our entrepreneurs start exciting new businesses every day.
Most of all, America is indispensable—and exceptional—because of our values. As Secretary of State, I was proud to represent our country’s commitment to freedom, equality and opportunity. The world looks to us to stand up for human rights, LGBT rights, religious and ethnic minorities, women, people with disabilities and people everywhere who yearn for peace. We challenge ourselves and other nations to do better. It’s why so many people from around the world want to become Americans too.
But with all of these advantages comes responsibility—we need to continue leading the world. Because when America fails to lead, we leave a vacuum that lets extremism take root, emboldens our adversaries and discourages our friends.
Of course, this doesn’t mean that people from other places don’t also feel deep national pride—and other countries also have a responsibility to step up and help solve global problems. But America has an unparalleled ability to be a force for peace, progress and prosperity around the world. And when we do, we make our own country safer and stronger.
So let’s never stop doing good and being great. Let’s keep America exceptional.
Commentary: word fail me to comment on this messianic logorrhea. I will just say that it reminds me of some of the most delusional speeches by Adolf Hitler or Lev Trotsky. The difference, of course, is that Hitler and Trotsky were men of principle (even if these principles were evil) whereas Clinton is totally devoid of any form or morals or principle.
Gosh,it was sad and sickening reading that dribble. Knowing that it wasn’t true. And even more importantly that “she ” knows it isn’t true. Was about all I could take. I feel the need for a long hot shower to remove the stench of that.
Funny you mentioning the ” stench”. Just today I watched a video of a woman that said Hell- iry has a ” stench” that was so powerfully horrid she could not even describe it.
Others said that she smelled like a ” dead pig”.
Perhaps, America being great because it is good… or is it good because it is great?… my circuits trip just trying to sort that out… Hilary is an ambulatory, female Lenin?
Franz, the truth is that the USA has caused more death and destruction than any other force for Evil in all human history, by orders of magnitude, but the brainwashed serfs that represent the decaying US populace need their daily dose of psychotic jingoism, just to get through the day, and the daily routine of humiliations that the ruling parasite elite inflict on them, every single day.
Uncle Bob, I’m not so certain she “knows it isn’t true.” To be sure, she’s perfectly aware that we don’t always live up to our “values,” especially since she was a principle in the arming of intolerant Salafist terrorists, and she knows quite well what they are. But no doubt she believes that sometimes you have to make short term compromises in order to further the greater long-term good. So if you take the broader view of what she’s written, yeah I think she believes the US is “exceptional” and “indispensible” and that what’s good for her and the 1% is in the long run good for the world, because “values.” That’s what’s most scary about her.
Bob, I would imagine that Clinton is so thoroughly deranged, like all the US elite, as to actually believe this drivel. One feature of the psychopath is gigantic egomania, and it doesn’t come any more demented than the ‘Exceptionalists’. I imagine that the take-over of the US and other Western power structures by Zionazi Jews has only exacerbated the Messianism. Those creatures firmly believe that they are God, and no doubt their Sabbat Goy stooges imagine it will rub off on them if they follow orders with sufficient enthusiasm, and no-one grovels to Israel like Clinton.
ah … i disagree
just watching the presidential debate, trump is losing because he just sits there like an idiot while she attacks. He seems to have killed his chance to win right at the beginning by openly admitting that he’ll appoint supreme justices that will reverse roe vs wade. The last candidate that did that was George Herbert Walker Bush, who threw the election and got Bill Clinton elected.
it was one of the most boring performances I’ve ever seen. This whole thing is fixed and we’re in for a big mess. Trump seems to have thrown this or doesn’t seem to care that much.
Reads like a 5th grader’s composition assignment. Vapid.
Lady MacBeth failed to mention one opinion, mine: The US is a steaming,Trotskyite Bolshevik-infiltrated pile of shit.
The only sentence one really needs to know is this one:
“America is indispensable in part because we have the greatest military in history, with the best troops, training and technology. And it’s essential we do everything we can to support our men and women in uniform, and our veterans.”
She implies that all non US Countries and people CANNOT do without the US military. If I want to cut a potatoe I need a knife, and from this follows the knife being partly indispenensable in regards towards cutting a potatoe.
So therefore by extending that concept on to the witche’s sermon, it follows that I or my country need the US military in any matter of action. I didn’t know that. But in diving deeper it in indeed means exactly that ! The US military summarily directly or indirectly ALLOWS all this actions to take place, but can at any time of their wishing directly or indirectly interfere and FORCE me or my country to do what it is ORDERED to do. If we look at today Germany for example, we see in it the model land, Germany is not a real Nation State but instead occupied territory managed by a company which was installed by the US back in 1945. The US military could interfere there any time it wished for and do whatever they like. As we all know the US since 9/11 is at war officially against Terror, not another State, but just that Terror ! Wherever there is Terror the US is at war, and if there is Terror everywhere, the US is at war everywhere they like, no nod needed by the Congress. It is certainly no coincidence that Terror emerged like fungus blooming almost immediately after 9/11 all over the planet. Is there a single African Country without Terror groups ? Very unlikely..
Hillary – certainly not by accident – set the indispensable military first on her list, because she knows very well, what tasks are at hand, and who will have to do the action.
She’s right since 9/11 the US military is to become indispensable everywhere and she will acertain this. WWII was horrible but now we are much further !! Blood MUST be spilled in ever growing quantities to keep and make the US great, EXACTLY like the Aztec Empire. Or in closing: TOTAL CANNIBALISM !
I cannot almost wait for the mythological giant EMD “weapon of discrimination” to be exploded over usa…..mundo could you check whether the schedule of next Jan is in the stars. Almost kidding..maybe…
“She implies that all non US Countries and people CANNOT do without the US military”
Yes, she shows the stick – we have the bigger stick in our hand, so is better to all of you to take care on how you behave –
“But with all of these advantages comes responsibility—we need to continue leading the world. Because when America fails to lead, we leave a vacuum that lets extremism take root, emboldens our adversaries and discourages our friends”.
So, essentially, what Clinton is saying is that unless the USA is continually killing people in foreign countries all the time, the world will disintegrate.
What do Hitler, Trotsky and Hillary have in common?
They were/are all Zionist Intel assets.
(How can we talk meaningfully about current events, when we don’t know our history?)
Trotsky??? .. hmm, well I´m glad you brought that up, for I among others would appreciate a history lesson from you on Leon Trotsky.
On the other hand, I would not want to complicate the heavy load for you. I would much rather leave that task to the history department, methinks.
I am afraid all the medieval universities have either been closed or updated.
From your casual use of the archaic and pretentiously coy ‘methinks’, meassumes[sic] that, unbeknownst perhaps to yourself, that thou searcheth for suchlike for your further edification.
But Saker U is actually not that hard to get into, you only need to have a brain with some free RAM in it.
I would love the opportunity to provide you with a fully paid visit to an orthodontist to replace your front teeth you pompous ass.
The stupid harpy needs a board strapping across her feet to stop her from entirely vanishing up her own fundamental orifice.
Then add a huge weigh and dump her somewhere very very deep.
That speech should be reposted far and wide.
Sadly,the speech would appeal to many people in the US. Unless you know the history and context of her words.The words themselves don’t sound threatening to a US population used to hearing that type of propaganda.If that speech is reprinted it needs to be broken down and the lies clearly pointed out.I gag hearing it “because” I know the lies.But if I didn’t as an American, I wouldn’t think anything about it.
Somewhat off topic, I watched about 40 minutes of the debate last night, and on a couple of occasions she made me laugh, stuff about families and children and how she cares. Trump had the look of someone who set his face like stone– given the amount of lies embedded in the current discourse, it is probably the only way anyone with a drop of decency could proceed. I am claiming that Trump appears to have some integrity, and that this makes him, on the surface unsympathetic. Scott Adams hit the nail on the head on the first debate when he mentioned the uncanny valley hypothesis: http://blog.dilbert.com/post/151007796236/i-score-the-first-debate
Is this the battle of brands, Trump vs. Clinton; is this the play of Presidential crisis actors?
I hope you are not ill, Saker– the only place I see junk like Time is when I’m in the waiting room (kidney stones, getting a tooth extracted, etc).
The basis and entire existence of the United States of America is one of the biggest crimes in recorded history.
The US is a nation of European colonist who broke away from their European masters and genocided the original inhabitants of the entire continent they now inhabit. They brought in millions of slaves and then started bringing/accepting immigrants from all over the world.
They formed an alliance with the European Jews and finally took over the political, military and economic domination of the entire planet from their former European masters.
No human force on Earth has accomplished such a world domination in the entire recorded history of humanity. Anyone who has a strong grasp of history and truth cannot avoid this absolutely unnatural and unprecedented mind boggling alliance and global world domination.
This global dominating Western-Anglo Zionist alliance is so militarily strong and has literally created the entire economic monetary system that it cannot collapse or be defeated from within, but must be physically destroyed by force…..
…..You know how this story will end…….and that’s the way the cookie crumbles.
While I disagree with the thesis that everything ever done between New England, Florida, California and Washington State was evil, real Americans have to face the blunt reality of the following:
911 was meant as a dark freemasonic, Lucerferian ritual to inaugurate a century, or several, of world domination based on fear, war, and the immolation of Care, Love, courage or WILL to Ascend, which 93 symbolizes, in both light and dark freemasonry. Left to right movement from 9 (base consciousness) to 3 (Holy Trinity of thought, spirit and Action or Mind, Soul, and Body without incompletion or contradiction weakening the coordination and coherence of all three) within a two digit number or number symbol.
I doubt Hitlery realizes this or would care to realize this if it were pointed out to her. Like many of the criminals signing on to the NWO agenda, all she cares about is mouthing the sophistry of Empire sufficiently well to be rewarded by the pedophile high priests of the NWO passing out the goodies of power and wealth to the few highly rewarded slaves of theirs, like her..
This makes her an attack dog of people who explicitly indicate their evil in their signature ritual of the age. Her masters, in their own occulted language revel in their evil.
One can almost hear the high priests that run this hypocritical witch and her Goldman Sachs paymasters laughing until their sides hurt.
Indispensable? Hardly. Flushable, I would say, along with the the whole Luceferian NWO agenda.
It’s up to the less highly rewarded slaves under her, especially way under her, to break ranks, because they are getting the stupidest end of a spiritually bad deal, all the way around.
But Hillary is every bit as much of a slave as her most unfortunate victims. Disgusting and pathetic creature.
I have seen the same thing, close up, in my own extended family. People who had sharp enough instincts to smell a rat with the pristine passport on the Manhattan sidewalks, within the first half of September 2001, but NO WILL (NONE!!!!) to do a single thing about it, sensing that taking such a human, moral stance might inconvenience their venal goals in life. Pathetic. Disgusting. Hillaric.
As Above (public figures such as Killary), So Below (far, far too many ordinary gutless, cowardly, immoral people.).
Many more of them need their noses rubbed in this satanic mind control they cave in to. Until the human garbage is cleaned up, rats like Killary will “thrive”. If you call it that.
This is simply low grade political rhetoric at the Op-Ed level. That’s what one would expect to see published in Time. It’s not worth the time to read. Something much more interesting to post would be some of the Wikileaks data, especially Clinton’s speeches to Goldman Sachs.
Thanks for posting the Hillary speeches to GS. What’s interesting is that this is her private position, so likely to be her true beliefs.
Definitely, most likely the Time piece was not even written by Clinton but by one of her staff. In any case, it’s clearly written to reassure the crusty old conservatives at Time that the best days of the US are not already passed, as many fear. It’s been pointed out that the “exceptional” and “indispensable” rhetoric would never have been written by a politician in, say, 1960. Not because they wouldn’t have believed it, but simply because it was so self-evident at that time that there would have been no point to belabor it. Trump’s make America great again slogan has evidently caused some anxiety.
That is all I can say.
What a steaming pile of self-serving BS.
Now I know why I NEVER read Time mag. It always was one of the main American propaganda organs. That was how it was conceived, by Henry Luce. Luce’s Time has also had a very negative influence on the English language.
AAMOF, I think Luce coined the term/notion of “the American Century.”
But what must citizens of other lands think when they read such triumphalist, we-rule-the-world trumpetings? Surely they quake in their boots and look to maybe trying to make a security deal with Russia or China.
Hopefully! But as we see with many,its the opposite. It makes the EU countries,and some others think “I’m glad we are on the top dog’s side”.And they bow even deeper So it can have two affects.For those that understand they are a target.Either that should make them ally together. Or it will frighten them and they will seek to knell to the “God King”.Its disturbing (and worrying) that I don’t see more of them openly allying together.They need to if they hope to survive.Once the “Medusa” ascends the throne they may not have the time to ally together.
She is totally delusional and regurgitates the tiresome mantra we have been hearing for decades now. What can we say to it all? Those with eyes will see, those with brains will understand that it is one grandiose farce and lie. Extremely dangerous. Lord have mercy!
She’s not delusional at all: the American public are, who will vote her in: and she knows it.
If you look at it in a historical context, Hillary is not saying anything new. The exceptionalist, messianic clique in Washington has long gained ground and entrenched itself within the US establishment to the point of no return.
Clinton is one of their most iconic exponents. All of which she said in this little pamphlet can be reduced to ‘We’re great because we’re so good’, and Bush Junior was fond of saying something very similar.
Ultimately, we (outside of the US) should pay no attention to her drivel. It’s primarily meant for the mass of Americans who can still be swayed by this cheap rhetoric. I think (hope) the number of Americans ready to buy it is getting smaller and smaller by the day.
For a taste of what real american exceptionalism looks like, one should take a trip to texarse and see how the exceptionalist of the exceptional, the ultra elite of american exceptionalism conduct themselves.
Texas Students Walk Out After Professor Says All Humans Originated in Africa
“The professor was discussing the “out of Africa” theory, based on scientific comparison of DNA and thousands of human skulls from around the world. Scientists behind the study concluded the human species originated entirely in Africa. Their findings have been widely accepted within the scientific community.
Kennedy (nephew of assassinated U.S. President) agrees (not)
:-) This pearl *must* be translated and spread to all nations! I know well the deep feelings of the people around me (E. EU) – simply almost nobody (except NGOs and other agents on the US payroll) likes the US, just the intensity of this dislike – or even hatred if you want, yes, hatred – and the loudness of the expression af that differs.
They really think, that if aocal puppet government is loyal enough, it means also, that the population is also allied. Well, it is NOT. And the local governments know it and already had began change their rhetorics, and acts as well.
The euphory of the 1990-ies is over and the officially not visible but real sentiment towards the USA and “the western values” is negative. We are a relatively traditional society here, the Poles, Czechs, Hungarians, Slovaks at least in the moral sense and hate lies, which is unfortunately the base of this system. So, if the americans really think that we are their “friends” it can lead to painful miscalculations…
So, Mrs. Clinton’s view just strenghten this feeling, thus I recommend to translate and spread it.
any one’s mouth can open letting words fall out.

Her writing is full of Straussian “noble lies.” Unfortunately, what Strauss failed to understand is that the idiots he was teaching had nowhere near his intellect and would tell ignoble lies, thinking they were somehow “noble” because they advanced the short term interests of the “noble” elites.
Well, it turns out that when non-elites finally figure out the ignoble lies were in fact lies used to exploit them, they start to realize the “noble lies” were in fact lies as well.
The very fact that Abraham Lincoln had to be elected and a war had to be fought before slavery could be ended in the US belied his sincere belief that we are the “last, best hope of earth,” a noble lie if ever I heard one.
Summary of Hillary Clinton’s Mein Kampf …. I mean … Time Magazine article:
“America is the greatest, most wonderful, exceptional, admired, strongest, bestest country in the history of the human race forever and ever!!!!!!!! Because I said so!!!”
The scary thing is many Americans have this same delusional mindset.
God help us all.
