During her recent speech on the subject of the “war on truth” during the second day of the Clinton Global Initiative Meeting in New York City, former presidential candidate Hillary Clinton demonstrated a notable disconnect from reality.
Hillary, who is widely perceived to lack self-awareness, delivered a speech during one of the two-day event’s panels titled “Journalism on the Frontlines: How Protecting Freedom of the Press Supports All Human Rights.”
Shortly after the conclusion of the panelists’ roundtable discussion, Hillary Clinton proceeded to deliver a speech centered on the concept of “truth,” in which she elaborated on the reality of the various challenges journalists face on a global scale.
In a hypothetical scenario, Clinton, who has a history of suppressing journalists in multiple instances, some of which will not be elucidated on in this context, stated that it is our responsibility to protect the media from encroachments on their ability to pose inquiries.
Clinton endeavored to portray herself as a steadfast supporter of journalists and the First Amendment, elaborating on the dangers the press faced during her tenure as secretary of state.
Clinton failed to acknowledge instances in which journalists are attacked for expressing opinions that deviate from the dominant left-wing narrative.
In addition, she was unable to refrain from eloquently discussing the difficulties encountered by journalists, who, according to her assertions, face hostility from individuals who fabricate “alternative facts to support false narratives.”
The term “alternative facts,” as used by Clinton, refers to media reports that she or the left-wing Democrats find unfavorable, particularly those that cast light on her alleged criminality.
Clinton asserted the existence of a substantial conflict against truth, “We have a very real war on truth, facts, and reason,” urging individuals to fulfill their responsibility in safeguarding “free and honest journalism, to help keep all of us informed, to hold institutions to account.”
She proceeded to assert “You can’t have a democracy if you don’t have people reporting on what leaders are doing.”

We're in the midst of a real war on truth, facts, and reason. Assaults on the free press have to be taken seriously.

It is extraordinary how much Clinton has undermined the institution of journalism throughout her political career, especially in light of her current claim to be a supporter of “press freedom.”
Certain individuals on X, formerly known as Twitter, noted Clinton’s self-description as a “truth warrior” ironically.

This observation was made by a perceptive Twitter user, “This is rich coming from the woman whose campaign paid for the Steele dossier to be disseminated…”
During her 2016 presidential campaign, Hillary Clinton segregated reporters by constraining them within a designated rope line, approximating the confinement of cattle.

Clinton has been seen keeping records on journalists and evaluating them based on their perceived goodwill and propensity to provide favorable coverage.
This particular strategy is inconsistent with press freedom principles. Moreover, if Clinton asserts her commitment to truthfulness, her controversial past should be brought to her attention.
It is essential to acknowledge Clinton’s hypocrisy, which was evident in her criticism of President Trump for legally retaining presidential materials at his Mar-a-Lago residence after his indictment by the Federal government.
Hillary Clinton, who used a personal email system to conduct official government business, was perhaps not the best person to criticize Donald Trump for his handling of classified documents.
According to a disclosure made by the non-profit organization Judicial Watch, a significant number of Clinton’s emails contained classified information, including the identity of a covert Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) agent.
The suspect transmitted classified information through a privately operated server, while also attempting to conceal her actions by purging emails and disposing of BlackBerrys subject to legal requests.
Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton utilized the pricey software application BleachBit in order to delete a total of 33,000 emails. In addition, she utilized a mallet to physically destroy multiple BlackBerrys.
The individual in question demonstrated a high level of dedication and commitment in averting the filing of Espionage Act charges against her. During her tenure as secretary of state, a Chinese company allegedly affiliated with Chinese intelligence obtained unauthorized access to her classified communications.
During a hearing in 2018, House Judiciary Committee member Louie Gohmert disclosed that the Intelligence Community Inspector General (ICIG) had determined that the vast majority of Hillary Clinton’s 30,000 emails had been transmitted to a foreign entity.
