“Hear No Evil, See No Evil, and Speak No Evil”

This maxim or proverb, that originated in 17th Century Japan (using 3 monkey's as symbols), seems to apply to the Obama Administration and to Hillary Clinton. In the Western world, the phrase is often used to refer to people who deal with impropriety by “turning a blind eye” to it, or as someone with a lack of moral responsibility by looking the other way or by feigning responsibility. Do Obama and Hillary meet that criteria?

The four major scandals of the Obama Administration, along with Hillary as Secretary of State, have the finger prints of that proverb all over them including 1) Fast and Furious (selling arms to Mexican drug cartels), 2) the Benghazi attack (where 4 Americans were murdered, including our Ambassador to Libya, 3) the targeting and harassment, by the I.R.S., of Conservative groups, by refusing them charitable tax status, and 4) the use, against State Dep't. Policy, of a private e-mail server by Hillary in the conduct of her duties.

Listening to Obama and Hillary, and their hand-picked spokesmen and aides, they really adhere to the proverb, “hear no evil, see no evil, and speak no evil” in order to deflect from their incompetence, ineptness, and possible dereliction of duty. And in the case of Hillary, the possibility of committing a crime.

Of course, in the case of “Fast and Furious”, no one in the White House or the Attorney General's office (under Eric Holder) knew that guns were being shipped to Mexican drug cartels - according to them, it was all done by lower level Justice Dep't. Officials. But,in the meantime, pertinent documents regarding this matter, were withheld that would have most likely shown who authorized this debacle, by using executive privilege as a roadblock to getting these documents. Where's the openness and transparency that Obama promised in his campaigns?

When it came to Benghazi, Obama and then Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, knew nothing about the lack of security at our compound and annex in Benghazi, even though numerous memo's were sent by Ambassador Chris Stevens and his Ass't. Gregory Hicks, alerting Washington of the danger months before the horrendous attack took place, causing the death of 4 Americans and the ambassador. After the attack, and for weeks thereafter, the powers-to-be told the world the attack was prompted by a stupid anti-Muslim video that no one saw. They refused, for weeks, to admit that this attack was a terrorist attack by a group affiliated with Al-Queda, and to this day, they still fumble with the word “Islamist terrorist” in explaining what went on, on that fateful day of 9/11/12. Did the upcoming presidential election have anything to do with their pronouncements? It was obvious, wasn't it?

In regards to the I.R.S. targeting and harassing Conservative groups, at the time, as they applied for preferential tax status, President Obama was asked if he knew about actions of the I.R.S., he stated that he only found out about it in the media like everyone else did. Is he for real? Is he not the president of the United States, and did he not appoint the various commissioners of the Internal Revenue Service. Well, if you believe what he said, then I have a bridge in Brooklyn I'd like to sell you.

The most recent scandal, was about involving Hillary's use of a private e-mail server, which has brought about an investigation by the F.B.I. looking into whether or not Hillary committed a crime by putting our national security at risk by using an unsecured e-mail sever against State Dep't. rules and regulations. She has offered one lie after another, which the State Dep't. Inspector General has pointed out quite clearly. As of this writing, the F.B.I. recommended no "indictment" even though all the evidence pointed to a violation of  the civil code by Hillary Clinton.  Since that meeting between Bill Clinton and A/G Loretta Lynch on the tarmac in Phoenix, you could assume that the fix was in.  After all, she worked for Obama and he didn't want an indictment to screw up his legacy.

Obama and Hillary firmly believe that they are “teflon coated” and that none of these scandals will bring them down. You could deduce that the proverb of “hear no evil, see no evil, and speak no evil” has been adopted by both Obama and Hillary and they have perfected it like no two other people.

Can you imagine if a Republican would be as devious as both Hillary and Obama, the media and the Democrats would have a sh.. fit, but since they both have a (D) after their name they are free to deceive like always. Hillary supporters must walk around with blinders on because they don't want to hear no evil, see no evil, or speak no evil about anything Hillary does. She is probably the most corrupt presidential candidate in modern times. These two grifters, Hillary and Slick Willie, are the modern day Bonnie and Clyde, only without the guns.
