In the months since Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump officially became the nominees of their respective parties, I’ve seen lots of chatter on social media about how Green Party candidate Jill Stein is the only logical alternative to the Democratic and Republican two-party system.
But Jill Stein, who is also a medical doctor, has continually undercut her credibility by saying totally untrue things such as this: WiFi is dangerous to the health of children. Does she have any evidence to support that hypothesis? Nope, not a shred. Yet here she is saying making her outrageous claim:
Stein went to Harvard Medical School and yet she believes this load of bull?
Now we have Stein going on the record and warning that Hillary Clinton is more dangerous than Donald Trump and accusing Bernie Sanders–whom she urged to run on the Green Party ticket after he lost the Democratic nomination–of being a Washington insider.
As part of a Politico podcast, Stein commented:
“Donald Trump, I think, will have a lot of trouble moving things through Congress. Hillary Clinton, on the other hand, won’t … Hillary has the potential to do a whole lot more damage, get us into more wars, faster to pass her fracking disastrous climate program, much more easily than Donald Trump could do his.”
Let’s pause for a second and consider that statement from Dr. Stein: Last time I checked, the House of Representatives was controlled by the GOP, as was the Senate. But Clinton will have less trouble moving things through Congress? You mean kinda the same way President Obama has so much success getting Congress to pass any legislation that he’s proposed?
Then Stein decided to tell lies about Bernie Sanders:
“I’ve tried to talk with Bernie, but, you know, Bernie is — he is a team player. I think he’s on the wrong team, perhaps because he’s been in Washington, D.C., too long, because he used to really understand independent politics and why we cannot have a viable political system unless we have independent political parties.”
It should also be noted that Stein, much like Trump, is a big fan of Russian President/tyrant/murderer Vladimir Putin, of whom she has said when asked if Putin is a tyrant:
“To some extent, yes, but there could be a whole lot worse. When we needlessly provoke him and endanger him and surround him with war games — this is sort of the Cuban Missile Crisis on steroids … and I don’t think this is a good idea.”
What about Putin’s repeated hacking of Democratic computer servers and the fact that he may well want to see Trump elected? Does that give Stein any second thoughts about Putin? Nope:
“I don’t think we have evidence — there is really no hard evidence. We need to take a deep breath on this. This really doesn’t seem to be happening.”
Doesn’t seem to be happening? Neither is your pathetic fourth-place campaign, Jill. You just totally disqualified yourself from any rational discussions on the future of this country and the world.
