When Bernie Sanders isn’t talking about raising taxes and giving away free sh*t, he sometimes makes some good points, as evidenced by a portion of last night’s Democratic Debate between himself and Hillary Clinton when the Senator slammed her connections with elitist insider Henry Kissinger.
“I happen to believe that Henry Kissinger was one of the most destructive secretaries of state in the modern history of this country,” Sanders said. “I am proud to say that Henry Kissinger is not my friend. I will not take advice from Henry Kissinger.”
Sanders brought up Kissinger because Hillary had previously cited the Bilderberg Steering Committee member to defend her record as Secretary of State.
In the last debate, which was only last week, Clinton declared that she was “very flattered when Henry Kissinger said I ran the State Department better than anybody had run it in a long time.”
Sanders noted that Kissinger paved the way for one of the worst instances of genocide in modern history when he oversaw the carpet bombing of Cambodia and subsequent ground incursion, allowing the Communist Chinese backed Khmer Rouge to gain power.
“Count me in as someone who will not be listening to Henry Kissinger,” Sanders told viewers.
Clinton weakly retorted “I know journalists have asked who you do listen to on foreign policy, and we have yet to know who that is.”
Which teed up Sanders to interject “It ain’t Henry Kissinger, that’s for sure.”
However, while Sanders gained approval for disavowing the establishment, in the next breath he was vowing to subvert the Constitution by ignoring Congress and vowing to go further than President Obama in using executive action.
Last year, Hillary praised Kissinger In a review for his book, “World Order.” Clinton referred to the kingpin’s “compelling case” for building a global architecture.
Writing for the Washington Post, Clinton fawned over Kissinger’s lifelong work, arguing that “no viable alternative” for the future remains.
“Henry Kissinger’s book makes a compelling case for why we have to do it and how we can succeed,” Clinton wrote.
According to Clinton, President Obama and herself have long worked toward fulfilling the same strategy as Kissinger.
“His analysis, despite some differences over specific policies, largely fits with the broad strategy behind the Obama administration’s effort over the past six years to build a global architecture of security and cooperation for the 21st century,” she said.
In 2013, Kissinger and Hillary publicly cosied up at an elite dinner party, where he openly endorsed Hillary becoming president in 2016, while ‘joking’ that he had often thought of ways of violating the Constitution so he could become President himself.
It isn’t the first time Kissinger has cracked such ‘jokes’. In data dumps by Wikileaks, dubbed the ‘Kissinger Cables’, the globalist stalwart is quoted as saying, “Before the Freedom of Information Act, I used to say at meetings, ‘The illegal we do immediately; the unconstitutional takes a little longer’.”
Clinton’s campaign against Barack Obama during the 2008 Democratic primaries came to an end when she abruptly announced that she was to concede and suspend her campaign, following a secret meeting held with Obama, which in all likelihood took place with Kissinger at the Bilderberg Group conference in Chantilly, Virginia.
