Do Politicians’ Policies of Aggression Reflect Private Behaviors?

What is it with these politicians and candidates who promote mainly policies of aggression, interventionism, and government theft of private wealth and property? We had the Bushes starting wars of aggression against countries that didn’t attack us and invasive police-state policies, and Obama and Trump who continue the policies.

There do not seem to be any candidates, Democrat or Republican, who want to liberate the American people, make the government stop stealing from the people, and end the invasions, bombings, and occupations overseas that do nothing but provoke foreigners.

But now that I am reading more about the current bunch of morons running for President (to replace the incumbent moron), I am seeing how these people behave in their private lives or behind the scenes, and how some of them are abusive.

But not all of them treat others badly, of course. For instance, so far we haven’t heard about Pete Buttigieg being abusive or acting like a criminal, but we have heard that his campaign is filled with nutty loony-tunes, like their attempting to expose “microaggressions” within the campaign. (Some black campaign workers report being interrupted in conversation  — Ooooh! — and being called the name of another staffer of the same race.) So, the nutsos try to go the opposite of being “abusive.”

But some of these politicians, especially those who advocate more interventions, more aggressions, more tax-thefts, and so on, seem to be treating others pretty badly.

A few days ago I asked if this Amy Klobuchar person might be the worst of the worst, because she combines the DC swampy interventionist foreign policy and warmongering with the leftist climate fanaticism and ObamaCare intrusions. She’s the worst of everything, a statist if there ever was one. And I wrote that she’s turning out to be a lot like Hillary, in those aforementioned ways. Here is what I wrote about that:

Robert Wenzel has this summary of Amy Klobuchar’s views and legislation she supports. She’s big on U.S. government interventionism around the world, loves the UN and NATO, supports NSA collection of private data without reasonable suspicion and votes in favor of FISA warrantless surveillance (i.e.. contempt for the 4th Amendment – Oh, that old thing?), wants the government to have authority over Facebook, Google and Amazon and other tech companies (anti-First Amendment, fascist), supports trade tariffs (against free trade and free markets), says regime change ops are on the table especially Venezuela, supports eco-fascism in climate change legislation and “Green New Deal” (i.e. crony Green Wheeling and Dealing). Thus, she combines the worst of warmongering, foreign interventionism, fascist anti-civil liberties and government spying on innocent people, with socialist tax-thefts in the name of irrational fanatical crusades. Very much like Hillary, in other words.

Yes, very much like Hillary Clinton, loving foreign interventionism and warmongering, and at the same time advocating far-left intrusions in the economy. The Democrats may nominate Klobuchar for President, and they may even have a brokered convention and insert Hillary to lose a second time.

And to remind us how Hillary Clinton has been over the years, Gary Byrne, a former Secret Service officer assigned to President Bubba Clinton during the 1990s, wrote about the Clintons’ behavior in the White House, Crisis of Character: A White House Secret Service Officer Discloses His Firsthand Experience with Hillary, Bill, and How They Operate, and the book included parts about Hillary’s tirades.

According to Page Six from a 2016 article, Byrne’s book “claims she repeatedly screamed obscenities at her husband, Secret Service personnel and White House staffers — all of whom lived in terror of her next tirade.”

Page Six quotes from the book: “From the bottom of my soul I know this to be true. And with Hillary’s latest rise, I realize that her own leadership style — volcanic, impulsive, enabled by sycophants, and disdainful of the rules set for everyone else — hasn’t changed a bit.”

And also from the Page Six article,

Byrne describes arriving for work one day in 1995 following a loud fight between the Clintons the night before.

The dust-up, he says, left a light blue vase “smashed to bits” and Bill sporting a “real, live, put-a-steak-on-it black eye.”

And more recently in 2016, during the year that Democrat Presidential nominee Hillary who was supposed to “break the glass ceiling” but didn’t, Hillary and Bubba had a “screaming match only days before her election loss,” according to WND.

But now we are hearing that Amy Klobuchar is like Hillary not only in their statist policies but in other ways, mainly the bad temper and treating staff with abuse. For instance, according to Vanity Fair,

Klobuchar’s alleged temper was not unknown in Washington. Last year, The New York Times noted that, “On Capitol Hill, Ms. Klobuchar’s reputation is not all sweetness and light.” A March 2018 article in Politico described Klobuchar as among the “worst bosses in Congress,” with the highest office turnover rate in the Senate. But the new details reported by BuzzFeed and the Huffington Post, if true, are particularly damning. BuzzFeed reviewed e-mails, often sent between 1 and 4 in the morning, in which Klobuchar “regularly berated employees, often in all capital letters, over minor mistakes, misunderstandings, and misplaced commas. Klobuchar, in the e-mails, which were mostly sent over the past few years, referred to her staff’s work as ‘the worst in . . . years,’ and ‘the worst in my life.’”

…multiple sources alleged that Klobuchar’s mistreatment of office staff began more than a decade ago, and that in 2015, then Senate minority leader Harry Reid told her privately that she had to change her behavior.

And there’s this New York Post article, Amy Klobuchar reportedly threw office supplies at employees during outbursts.

Okay, that’s enough.

So it seems that Klobuchar really is a lot like Hillary.

Now, what is it with these politicians? Do the more power hungry ones, like Amy and Hillary, just have psychopathic personalities?

If for some reason the Democrats make Amy Klawbutcher their nominee, when she loses to The Donald will we see if she goes crazy like the angry Hitlery?

And I don’t see why anyone would vote for Democrats or Republicans anymore, when those two statist parties are what caused the country’s mess in the first place. More and more government stealing from the people, draconian laws and police state with the drug war and failed attempts to address immigration and “terrorism” issues.

What we really need is someone who proposes to liberate the people of America, by dismantling all those terrible laws and policies and dismantling the national security state and foreign military bases, ending the drug war and stop stealing from the American people. (For example, Jacob Hornberger who is a Libertarian Party candidate for President. I’m sure he doesn’t lose his temper and throw things at people like those other politicians do.)
