How Team Hillary secretly Sees the World
At NYTIMES by Rich Lowry,
The Web site Politifact jumped all over Rudy Giuliani earlier this year when he said, “Hillary Clinton is for open borders.” It spent about 700 words sifting the evidence and ended up rating the former New York City mayor’s claim “false.”
Now we know that Politifact blew its call because it lacked access to the most important datum — Hillary Clinton’s real view.
For that, it would’ve had to be present at one of her paid speeches at a major financial institution, in this case the Brazilian bank Banco Itau. In May 2013, Clinton told her audience at the bank,
“My dream is a hemispheric common market, with open trade and open borders.”
Ding, ding, ding — there’s the magic phrase, in Hillary’s own words.
