Clinton’s flim-flam

Short extract from Clinton-Sanders debates, analysed by LUS.sense:

Clinton:

— …he has basically – basically used his answer to impugn my integrity, let’s be frank here.

Sanders:

— No, I don’t.

Clinton:

— Oh, wait a minute, wait a minute, senator. You know, not only do I have hundreds of thousands of donors, most of them small, I am very proud that for the first time a majority of my donors are women, 60 percent.

So I – I represented New York. And I represented New York on 9/11 when we were attacked. Where were we attacked? We were attacked in downtown Manhattan where Wall Street is. I did spend a whole lot of time and effort helping them rebuild. That was good for New York. It was good for the economy. And it was a way to rebuke the terrorists who had attacked our country.

So, you know, it’s fine for you to say what you’re gonna say. But I look very carefully at your proposal reinstating Glass Steagall is a part of what very well could help but it is nowhere near enough. My proposal is tougher, more effective and more comprehensive because I go after all of Wall Street not just the big banks.

 

I. Most important ideas, she was going to say, and said:

… [Sanders tries] to impugn my integrity…

… not only do I have hundreds of thousands…

… I am very proud that… majority of my donors are women…

… I represented New York [on 9/11] when we were attacked…

… I did spend a whole lot of time and effort…

… My proposal is tougher, more effective and more comprehensive because I go after all of Wall…

II. Most important words, she didn’t want to or couldn’t say, but had in mind or implied:

  1. RIDGE; [to] BRIDGE; BUNDLE[R]S; DOLLARS; MERCHANT
  2. LONDON; LOAFER
  3. COMPROM[ISE]; SENSITIVE; [DE]FAME; OIL

LUS.sense found these words at:

  1. …not only do I have hundreds of thousands of donors, BUNDLE[R]S, DOLLARS most of them small, I am very proud that for the first time a RIDGE/ [to]BRIDGE, MERCHANT majority of my donors are women, 60 percent…
  2. …where Wall Street is. I did spend a whole lot of time and LONDON, LOAFER effort helping them rebuild. That was good…
  3. …a part of what very well could help but it is nowhere near enough. My proposal is tougher, more effective and more COMPROMISE, SENSITIVE, [DE]FAME, OIL comprehensive because I go after all of Wall…

 

III. Her real attitude to what she states:

Hillary Clinton (HC) says, that Sanders doubted her integrity.

But at the same time she ‘says’ that:

— she should refute the opinion about her being involved/integrated into big business shemesand recieving money from oil, from coal, from Wall Street.

Distribution of repeated substitutions in her speech reveals another level of meaning, where ‘integrity’ becomes ‘am integrated’ and ‘let’s be frank’ ‘let me be frank’.

HC says, she not only has hundreds of thousands of small donors and underlines, that most of them are women.

But at the same time she ‘says’ that:

— not only she gets hundreds of thousands dollars;

— she gets profit from a lot of women donors;

— she was able to ‘build a bridge’ (eliminate the contradiction) between large (major) sponsors/donors (bundle[r]s, merchants), who support her, and small ones.

Why she recollects Ridge (Park Ridge, where she was born and grew up), is not quite clear.

HC says, that she did spend a whole lot of time and effort helping Wall Street to rebuild.

But at the same time she ‘says’, that:

— she has spent a lot of money not only on Wall Street, but also on her campaign in London, and on some bloody idlers (loafers).

HC says, that her proposal, in contrast to Sanders’ senseless ideas, is tougher, more effective and more comprehensive, because she goes after all of Wall Street.

But at the same time she ‘says’, that:

— her position about Glass-Steagall Act is very sensitive, compromise and infamous.

As for  the oil, we can suppose, that she has some donors among oil barons.
