In a recent poll , more than a thousand Americans were asked what they considered to be their biggest fear. No — it wasn’t Climate Change or even gun control. They said their biggest fear was of corrupt politicians.
Then, at church, I heard two sermons about integrity – what it is, and how to know it when you see it.
Can we relate this to the presidential election?
You bet we can. We have about twenty or so men and women who’ve thrown their hats into the ring. They talk about being insiders or outsiders – but few of them talk about integrity. One of them, Hillary Clinton, is known to be a pathological liar . That leads to a question: If a large segment of the American people support a candidate that lacks integrity – what does that say about those people? Sadly, that’s where we are. A corrupt politician cannot be elected without votes.
Question: Exactly what has Hillary Clinton NOT lied about?
Forget spin. All politicians work fast and loose with facts when they get a tough question. Trump spins his use of bankruptcy laws. Fiorina explains away the problems of Hewlett-Packard under her leadership. Christie spins “Bridgegate.” And so on.
Hillary Clinton goes far beyond spin. The Democratic frontrunner is an Energizer Bunny lying machine. She and her husband Bill are both famous for outright lies. Former Nebraska Senator Bob Kerrey once observed :
“Clinton’s an unusually good liar. Unusually good.”
And Kerrey is a Democrat. Imagine what Republicans think. But back to Hillary,
She has lied – or obfuscated – about the various Clinton scandals of the 90’s to the point that the lies are difficult to catalog .

Video: Hillary’s “Pretty In Pink” news conference. Her lips are moving. What do you suppose she is doing to the truth?
In the current presidential nomination race, she has flip-flopped on issues from the Trans-Pacific Partnership Trade Agreement to the Keystone XL Pipeline.

Yes, we know she’s moving to the left of Bernie Sanders for political reasons, but that shows a lack of integrity.
She also has lied about the attack on Benghazi that killed ambassador Chris Stevens and three other Americans – blaming it on a “video” until that storyline was discredited. She will never tell the truth unless she is indicted and compelled – and the prosecution would still need to use sodium pentothal.

The server scandal.
The home email server was put into place so that Hillary Clinton could sell access to herself and keep the communications secret. She NEVER considered President Obama her boss – but rather a placeholder to be tolerated until she and Bill could move back into the White House.
Dr. Tony Evans  tells the story of what his father did when he was ejected from school for fighting. Tony was sent to the basement to await his fate – which turned out to be several lashes from a razor strap and a stern lecture. Dr. Evans says he never endured one of those “sessions” twice for the same reason. Like Tony, I had a father that instilled integrity in me through the power of his personality. Watching him, I learned to know right from wrong.
Something is fouled up with the Clintons – both of them. Something is rotten to the core. Unfortunately, there is no one, except he American voters, to take Hillary to the basement and put the fear of God in her for lying. If enough voters care nothing for integrity, and believe that having a liberal Democrat in office is more important, our country is in deep trouble.
Unfortunately, Washington is the city with no consequences. If the American people elect her – and they may – the values we all grew up with are as good as dead.
