An ethics professor just wrote to announce that he was ceasing to follow the blog because
“you have become a one note Hillary basher and compromised your disinterest.”
1. I do not bash Hillary Clinton. I accurately point out her serial unethical conduct and statements. I am an expert in non-profit ethics, and her foundation is unethical. I an an expert in government ethics, and her conduct in relation to both her foundation and her State Department e-mails was unethical. I am an ethicist, and she could not get through her first substantial interview without multiple deceits, misrepresentations and lies. Pointing these out, especially when the news media is not doing its job, is my duty and mission. Apparently a lot of people don’t know this woman is unethical. I am obligated to enlighten them if I can.
2. My main area of scholarship and my personal passion, is leadership and the American Presidency. The Democratic Party, to its shame, is trying to make this unqualified and corrupt woman President of the United States. Naturally this is of deep concern to me, as it ought to be for every American.
3. Even considering this, the blog has hardly been all-Hillary. I just checked: there have been exactly three Hillary-themed posts in the last 50. FIFTY. Five-O. Gee, sorry, Professor, that the ethical corruption of the presumptive President of the United States occupies my ethics blog’s attention 6% of the time.
4. The Clintons’ master strategy for escaping all of their schemes and deceptions is to deny, obfuscate and throw up smokescreens until the public gets sick of the controversy, and tunes out. It’s a good, if cynical strategy, but it won’t work with me.
5. I will cease writing timely blogs about Hillary’s Clinton’s unethical conduct when
- She stops lying.
- The new scandals, schemes, and cover-ups stop materializing.
- The news media starts doing its job.
- The public shows sufficient comprehension of how corrupt she is.
- She is no longer running for President.
And not before.
