Hillary Clinton Disputes Validity of Election Results, Claims Putin 'Helped Elect Trump'

Western Journal

Failed former Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton said on Wednesday that Russian President Vladimir Putin helped to rig the 2016 election against her — and then claimed that people who dispute the 2020 election results are working on behalf of Russia.

“Putin is the great disrupter. He has a clear mission to undermine democracies, first and foremost, the United States,” she told MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” on Wednesday morning in a lashing of former President Donald Trump and his supporters.

“We don’t have, you know, Trump being in effect a spokesperson for Putin any longer,” Clinton said. “We have a president who will stand up and defend American interests.”

She also claimed that the 2016 election was not fair and that she lost because of Russian intervention, asserting that Putin “helped elect Trump.”

Clinton then immediately claimed that people who dispute the results of this last election are working for the Kremlin, either directly or indirectly.



“When you take an oath to serve the United States, you take an oath to protect and defend the Constitution against enemies foreign and domestic,” Clinton said. “We never thought we had to worry about domestic enemies. We never thought we had to worry about people who didn’t believe in our democracy, in our Constitution, in our separation of powers, in our institutions.

“And sadly, what we’ve seen over the last four years, and particularly since our election in 2020, is that we have people within our own country who are doing Putin’s work.

“Now, whether they are, as we say, witting or unwitting, they are doing his work to sow distrust, to sow divisiveness, to give aid and comfort to those within our country who, for whatever reason, are being not only disruptive but very dangerous.

“So, I think President Biden knows he has got to work on both fronts. We have problems here at home. … We’re letting partisanship, frankly, interfere with patriotism. And we’ve got to lay down some markers for Putin and then follow up with them.”

Clinton also accused Trump of emboldening and “elevating” Putin over his refusal to strike an adversarial tone with him from day one of his administration during the MSNBC spot.

“We can’t turn the clock back. … We not only lost four years, we emboldened Putin,” she said. “We gave him a green light. I never thought I would see some of what we saw during the four years of the Trump administration.”

Interestingly, Clinton’s tone from Wednesday is undercut by some of the facts.

For example, the former first lady’s portrayal of a Democratic White House taking a hardline stance against Russia prior to Trump’s election does not match the facts.

In 2012, then-President Barack Obama, during a presidential debate, slammed GOP nominee Mitt Romney for describing Russia as a chief threat to the U.S. and its interests abroad.

“Gov. Romney, I’m glad you recognize al-Qaida is a threat, because a few months ago when you were asked what’s the biggest geopolitical group facing America, you said Russia, not al-Qaida,” Obama said in a memorable moment. “You said Russia. And the 1980s are now calling to ask for their foreign policy back.

“Because, you know, the Cold War has been over for 20 years. But, Governor, when it comes to our foreign policy, you seem to want to import the foreign policies of the 1980s, just like the social policy of the 1950s, and the economic policies of the 1920s.”



Clinton at the time was Obama’s secretary of state.

Democrats, including Clinton, did not start pushing a narrative that Russia was the chief threat to the American public and democratic process until they falsely accused Trump of being connected to dark Russian operatives prior to the 2016 election — which Clinton lost in an election she now disputes.

Now that Democrats have found themselves the benefactors of what many conservatives view as a stolen election, Clinton and other high-profile Democrats are connecting a distrust in the electoral process to work on behalf of a foreign adversary.

Family Escapes Through 2nd-Story Window During Armed Standoff After Suspect Barricades Door: Report

Western Journal

Published

On July 25, in Auburn, Alabama, a man reportedly put his family, his neighborhood, first responders and himself in a very dangerous position. Calls came into the Auburn Police District around 7:00 p.m. reporting a domestic violence incident in the Camden Ridge Subdivision. When police arrived, the man reportedly began firing at them with a handgun. Police fired back, and the man retreated into the home, where he also had his family trapped in a room. Thanks to the police and fire department coming together and working smarter instead of harder, the situation was resolved without injury to the family members trapped upstairs. It was firefighter Andrew Kiser, Chief of Police Cedric Anderson and Shift Supervisor Lt. Cody Hill who were responsible for carrying out the daring rescue that helped bring the threat to an end. While the shooter refused to exit the house, the men carried a ladder to the house and set it up to reach one of the second-story windows, where they learned the man’s family had been trapped. While Anderson held the ladder steady, Hill climbed the ladder and Kiser assisted the family as they climbed out of the window. With the family out of the way, Lee County SWAT was able to enter the house and capture the suspect. He was taken to Baptist Medical Center South after he was found to have sustained what appeared to be a gunshot wound. “Auburn PD Alerts: Heavy Police Activity in the Camden Ridge Subdivision, in the area of Wedgewood Ct.,” a public safety alert for the area read, according to WRBL-TV. “The scene is secure at this time, NO ONGOING THREAT.” Auburn Assistant Police Chief Clarence Stewart praised the efforts of all involved, highlighting how each group present played an important role in…

After Receiving Call About Blazing Attic Fire, Police Rescue Man Trapped Inside Smoke-Filled Bedroom

Western Journal

A family in Marlboro Township, New Jersey, woke up just before midnight on Sunday and sensed something was wrong. They called 911 at around 11:38 p.m., reporting a “possible fire at the residence,” according to The Journal NJ. Officers Ryan Anzalone, Donna Gonzalez, Michael Morgante and Colin Murray with the Marlboro Township Police Department were first on the scene and quickly assessed the situation. They found smoke pouring out of the attic, but were relieved to see the family appeared to have exited the home. After a short time, though, the family realized one of their members was not with them, and was likely still trapped inside on the second floor. Gonzalez and Anzalone charged in and found the man, as described, in a bedroom on the second floor. By the time they got there, the room was “completely filled with smoke,” but they managed to rescue the resident. The fire department had a difficult time accessing the home due to the long, narrow driveway and a large landscaping rock. “While enroute Chief 2-66 was advised of heavy smoke from the attic,” the Robertsville Volunteer Fire Co. #1 posted on Facebook. “At the time the mutual aid response plan was put in place and the box alarm was requested to bring in initial assistance.” “Upon the arrival of 2-66 Chief advised the house was located down a 180 foot narrow driveway. Once engine 2-75 arrived there was trouble accessing the house due to a large ornamental boulder and trees. Members of the engine and police moved the 400lb boulder so the engine could get to the house and attack the fire. “As the incident progressed, the second alarm mutual aid plan was requested for this deep seated, hard to access attic fire.” The two officers who…
