VP Candidate’s Tim Kayne Inspiring Work with Jesuits in Honduras Clashes With Hillary Clinton’s Role in Coup Against Democracy in Honduras2

The Washington Posts, to its credit, published a surprisingly inspiring background of VP candidate Tim Kaine which was written in an article by Michelle Boorstein’s Kaine’s sharing of his faith life and on his devotion as a result thereof to justice in Honduras.
Said article’s title was “Kaine Touts Faith In Plea to Black Voters“
It occurred to this writer to share with its readers an extended elaboration of a letter to the editor which this writer submitted to The Washington Post.
The background revealed in said article by Michelle Boorstein, it stands in ironic contrast to, and directly clashes with, Hillary Clinton’s role in the 2009 coup in Honduras that had the popular democratically elected President Zelaya abducted in the middle of the night, who then was forced to ask for political asylum at the Brazilian embassy in Tegucigalpa.
Hillary Clinton, incredibly, pushed with insistence the bizarre, unethical, and erroneous notion that the U.S. must not characterize the coup, what it in reality it was, namely a violent coup against Honduras’ democracy, since that would force to the U.S. to end its military support to Honduras.
Zelaya’s removal helped lead to a new era of repression and lawlessness, as The Washington Post’s Karen Attiah quite aptly reported in her also excellent Washington Post article titled “Hillary Clinton’s Dodgy Answers on Honduras Coup“.
Said repression and lawlessness resulted, inter alia, in the assassination of, among many other idealist, innocent, unarmed civilians as Berta Caceres, a young environmental and human rights activist. This and other assassinations have been carried out by government thugs.
Hillary Clinton must be held accountable for her utter lack of ethics, proper judgment, and lack of respect for the Honduran people’s democratic choice of President Zelaya.
Hillary Clinton, since the days of her ardent support for the right wing extremist Senator Barry Goldwater, when she was a Republican, long ago dumped principles in exchange of political interests, and this trend has only become worse as she aged.
It is hard to understand how Tim Kaine and Hillary Clinton can be so totally on the opposite sides as relates to respect for democracy and justice, in this particular case as relates to Honduras, and how therefore they could work together as a President and Vice-President team.
Of course, as the Argentum Post has reported with ample documentation to back it up, Hillary Clinton declared that the murderous 30-year long dictator of Egypt was regarded by her as ” a friend of the family “, actively supported the oppression of democracy activists in Bahrain who were brutally attacked by the Bahraini dictatorship which called for Saudi Arabian dictatorship troops for assistance in repressing not only the peaceful Arab Spring demonstrators but also to reign and imprison the physicians and nurses who tended to the need of the badly injured demonstrators.
Just as Hillary Clinton chooses to not condemn the savage massacre of close to 3 thousand mostly unarmed innocent civilians in Gaza in the Summer of 2014, as a result of the Netanyahu/Likud led massacre there, a massacre with included 500 children, analogously Hillary Clinton chooses to not condemn the U.S. led savage bombing of Yemen by the Saudi Arab dictatorship, something which thus far has resulted in 6 thousand deaths, and more than 500 children.
As to this day August 16, 2016 the U.S. led barbaric bombing of Yemen continues and further tenths or more patients, physicians, and nurses in yet another hospital destroyed by the barbaric Saudi Arabian airstrike of Doctors Without Borders hospital were killed.
Hillary Clinton also was a solid supporter of the neocon Cheney/Bush war on Iraq based on dishonest claims, a war which constituted the seminal destruction of the Iraqi society something which ushered in the Al Qaeda in Iraq calamity followed now by the Daesh catastrophe which encompasses not only Iraq, but Lybia, Syria, and has spread to terrorist attacks in European capitals.
Hillary Clinton also first opposed vehemently any diplomatic negotiations with Iran on the nuclear issue.
It is furhter noteworthy that Hillary Clinton also stated that she liked the 30-year ruthless dictator of Egypt, and thief of the Egyptian treasury, namely Hosni Mubarak, who she declared as feeling for as if the was a “member of the family“.
So, it seems totally inconceivable that if Tim Kaine was sincere when he practiced some of the most noble commands that Jesus allegedly preached in his association with the progressive Jesuits in Honduras in support of social and economical justices for the impoverished and exploited masses in Honduras, that suddenly Tim Kayne and Hillaly Clinton could become involved in a political show wherein they play to the American people the roles characteristic of those who, fall to the proverbial roles wherein “politics makes strange bedfellows” is shamelessly observed.
Something is terribly wrong with a Clinton/Kaine team at the helm of a team running of our country, since on the surface at least, Kaine is too principled to stoop to the depths of the dishonest political chameleon which Hillary Clinton represents quite documentably a politician which recklessly and heartlessly dumps principles in support of interests based on greed, and political capital generation by the use of hate and fear mongering, in pursuit of a mindless and treasury and blood hemorrhage generating global hegemony.
Bottom line is, Hillary Clinton is as dangerous or more than Donald Trump to the best interests of ALL decent Americans and neither is most definitely qualified to the presidential post of our nation.
The “Third Party” alternative though is alive and well.
The indisputably most highly qualified candidate for the Presidency is the Harvard Medical School graduate candidate, Jill Stein, of the Green Party.
This article ends with the very welcomed announcement by CNN, that finally at long last, long after Democracy Now’s Amy Goodman and Juan Gonzales interviewed Jill Stein of the Green Party, CNN will for one hour interview Jill Stein and her VP candidate
