The NFL upheld the 4-game suspension for Tom Brady; certainly we can bar Hillary Clinton from running for office for the next four years—four Americans died in Benghazi.
Better yet, perhaps she should be benched in Benghazi. After all, she sat in the comfort of her leather chair in the United States while Americans—working for her—choked and died amid fumes of smoke.
We learn that a real-life Ken doll may have cut corners to win a Super Bowl ring, and we punish his possible infraction by denying him pay and play for four football games. We call him a cheater; a Lance Armstrong wannabe; a con man who belongs on Oprah’s couch.
Meanwhile, we shrug our shoulders when a former Secretary of State’s incompetence leads to the death of four Americans in the Benghazi, Libya terror attack on Sept. 11, 2012. We roll our eyes when she lies to our face about transmitting classified information through insecure emails.
Cecil the lion isn’t the only lovable face with a memorable name. The four Americans who died because of Hillary also have faces and names:
1. U.S. Ambassador Chris Stevens
2. State Department management officer Sean Smith
3. Tyrone Woods, former Navy SEAL and CIA contractor
4. Glen Doherty, former Navy SEAL and CIA contractor
Clinton immediately blamed the terrorist attack on an online video so obscure that even Libyan locals were unaware of it until Clinton and Obama brought it to their attention. Now she eludes Congress—refusing to testify until Oct. 22 for her use of a private, unsecured email address and her deletion of around 30,000 emails while Secretary of State.
“I never sent nor received any information that was classified at the time it was sent and received,” Hillary sniffed on July 25, 2015. Within days of her remark, a government inspector sent a letter to Congress testifying that at least four emails culled from her private account contained classified information.
Hillary loves retreating to the shadows with her baggage while the world expends its energy on football. Remember her 2014 Super Bowl tweet?

The NFL accuses New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady of cheating his team’s way to beating the Indianapolis Colts during the January 18 AFC Championship Game. The NFL alleges Brady wanted footballs deflated below the NFL’s allowable minimum of 12.5 psi in order to achieve an unfair advantage.
The NFL’s lawyer, Ted Wells, authored a 243-page tome reproving Brady as being “at least generally aware,” of the deflation of footballs below 12.5 psi. NFL commissioner Roger Goodell seconded Wells with his own 20-page Brady takedown. Neither Wells nor Goodell provided concrete evidence that Brady is guilty.
Brady appears to stand on solid ground when you compare him to both the NFL’s and Hillary’s penchant for grasping at straws. Consider Brady’s arguments:
1.) TOM BRADY on Jan. 22, 2015: “This isn’t ISIS. You know, no one’s dying.” (Hillary’s incompetency resulted in four Americans dying in a terrorist attack.)
2.) TOM BRADY on July 29, 2015: “the [NFL] Commissioner …has to respect … my rights as a private citizen.” Brady is a public entertainer and a private citizen who has no power over foreign policy or national security. (Even Jay-Z and Beyoncé needed the White House’s “ok” before they defied the law and vacationed to Cuba in 2013.) In contrast, Clinton is a public servant whose lies and ineptitude endanger all Americans.
Tell me why it’s ok to destroy Brady for POSSIBLY cheating at a ball game while we let Clinton off the hook for lying in ways that endanger Americans at home and abroad.
When I made this point on Twitter last week, it was as if—after a long winter’s slumber in a hollow tree—every troll awoke with a passion for Hillary. One Twitter troll was flabbergasted that I would care about just four Americans dying: “ohh wow 4 died. OMG that’s like, historically bad.” Other trolls wanted me to call for G. W. Bush’s imprisonment for his role in Iraq. (G.W. made some massive mistakes, but he is not running for president. Hillary is.) And one particularly bright troll concocted the tale that I want to “shoot entrepreneurs.” Other trolls began re-tweeting his slander without bothering to read my profile, which clearly states: “my goal is for every American to have a shot at entrepreneurship.”
Lesson: Birds of feather will flock together and liars will defend liars. But the truth always wins.
If Brady is suspended four games for an alleged triviality that may have given him an edge—we can bench Clinton in Benghazi for the next four years for her lies and incompetence that are responsible for the deaths of four Americans in Benghazi and endangering the lives of all Americans, including her devout Twitter troll fans.
