Many people who may vote in the democratic primary election and the general election in 2016 have no real knowledge of Mrs. Clinton or her accomplishments. As a public service, I thought I would provide some input regarding her triumphs for consideration.
Hillary met with Saul Alinsky several times in 1968, when she was writing her thesis. In her most recent memoir, Hillary wrote that she rejected a job offer from Alinsky to instead attend law school.
Hillary’s relationship with radical community organizer has long been the subject of speculation and intrigue. The interest has been largely fueled by her suppressed and later released 92-page senior thesis “There is only the Fight” for Wellesley College offering an extensive, largely positive critique of Alinsky and his work.
Hillary actually played a role in the Watergate saga, and her actions as a young attorney may have set the tone for her career.
As a 27-year-old House Judiciary committee staff attorney, Hillary was fired from the staff of the House Judiciary committee investigating the Watergate scandal in 1974. She was fired by her supervisor, lifelong Democrat Jerry Zeifman, who called her a liar and much worse.
“She was an unethical, dishonest lawyer,” he said. “She conspired to violate the Constitution, the rules of the House, the rules of the committee and the rules of confidentiality.”
Zeifman also refused to give Hillary a letter of recommendation, making her one of only three employees he snubbed during his 17-year career.
In 1975, Hillary defended a 41-year-old, who had been accused of raping a 12-year-old child. In unearthed recordings she almost boasts of knowing of her client’s guilt and laughing about the case. The tapes reveal her discussing the case of Thomas Alfred Taylor, then 41, who was accused of raping the 12-year-old in Springdale, Arkansas, on May 10, 1975.
She explained her defense of the child-rape suspect was just part of the job. But she hasn’t explained her laughing about his passing of a lie-detector test, which “destroyed” her faith in such evaluations.
Published profiles of the case reveal that Clinton’s strategy at the time was to attack the 12-year-old. She submitted an affidavit that said she was told the girl was “emotionally unstable” and was viewed as having a “tendency to seek out older men and engage in fantasizing.”
When Bill Clinton was president, he allowed Hillary to assume authority over a health care reform. Even after threats and intimidation, she couldn’t even get a vote in a democratic controlled congress. This fiasco cost the American taxpayers about $13 million in cost for studies, promotion, and other efforts.
Then President Clinton gave Hillary authority over selecting a female attorney general. Her first two selections were Zoe Baird and Kimba Wood – both were forced to withdraw their names from consideration. Next she chose Janet Reno – husband Bill described her selection as “my worst mistake.” Some may not remember that Reno made the decision to gas David Koresh and the Branch Davidian religious sect in Waco, Texas resulting in dozens of deaths of women and children.
Husband Bill allowed Hillary to make recommendations for the head of the Civil Rights Commission. Lani Guanier was her selection. When a little probing led to the discovery of Ms. Guanier’s radical views, her name had to be withdrawn from consideration.
Apparently a slow learner, husband Bill allowed Hillary to make some more recommendations. She chose former law partners Web Hubbel for the Justice Department, Vince Foster for the White House staff, and William Kennedy for the Treasury Department. Her selections went well: Hubbel went to prison, Foster (presumably) committed suicide, and Kennedy was forced to resign.
Many younger votes will have no knowledge of “Travelgate.” Hillary wanted to award unfettered travel contracts to Clinton friend Harry Thompson – and the White House Travel Office refused to comply. She managed to have them reported to the FBI and fired. This ruined their reputations, cost them their jobs, and caused a thirty-six month investigation. Only one employee, Billy Dale was charged with a crime, and that of the enormous crime of mixing personal and White House funds. A jury acquitted him of any crime in less than two hours
Still not convinced of her ineptness, Hillary was allowed to recommend a close Clinton friend, Craig Livingstone, for the position of Director of White House security. When Livingstone was investigated for the improper access of about 900 FBI files of Clinton enemies (Filegate) and the widespread use of drugs by White House staff, suddenly Hillary and the president denied even knowing Livingstone, and of course, denied knowledge of drug use in the White House. Following this debacle, the FBI closed its White House Liaison Office after more than thirty years of service to seven presidents.
Next, when women started coming forward with allegations of sexual harassment and rape by Bill Clinton, Hillary was put in charge of the “bimbo eruption” and scandal defense. Some of her more notable decisions in the debacle were:
She urged her husband not to settle the Paula Jones lawsuit. After the Starr investigation they settled with Ms. Jones.
She refused to release the Whitewater documents, which led to the appointment of Ken Starr as Special Prosecutor. After $80 million dollars of taxpayer money was spent, Starr's investigation led to Monica Lewinsky, which led to Bill lying about and later admitting his affairs.
Hillary’s devious game plan resulted in Bill losing his license to practice law for lying under oath to a grand jury and then his subsequent impeachment by the House of Representatives.
Hillary avoided indictment for perjury and obstruction of justice during the Starr investigation by repeating, “I do not recall,” “I have no recollection,” and “I don’t know” a total of 56 times while under oath.
After leaving the White House, Hillary was forced to return an estimated $200,000 in White House furniture, china, and artwork that she had stolen.
And the hits just keep on coming:
While serving as Secretary of State, Hillary broke federal law by setting up her own private, dangerously unsecured server for all her e-mail communications. Now we are exposed to the destruction of possibly incriminating emails while she was Secretary of State.
Hillary has wiped the server clean, refuses to hand it over, and can’t come up with a good reason for setting it up in the first place. This is all because she has nothing to hide.
Judicial Watch obtained previously classified documents from the U.S. Department of Defense and the Department of State revealing that DOD almost immediately reported that the attack on the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi, Libya Sept. 11, 2012, was planned and carried out by al-Qaida and Muslim Brotherhood-linked terrorists.
The more than 100 pages of previously secret documents that showed then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and other senior officials were given reports within hours of the Sept. 11, 2012, attack. In those memos, the DOD described details of a plan 10 days in advance “to kill as many Americans as possible.”
Despite her three top staff members being informed that a terrorist group had claimed credit for the attack, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, issued an official statement, also produced to Judicial Watch, claiming the assault may have been in “a response to inflammatory material posted on the Internet.”
The “pay to play” schemes of the Clinton Foundation, Hillary's non-profit, spent more on office supplies and rent than it did on charitable grants.
According to IRS filings for the period between 2008 and 2012, only 15% of the $500 million raised during that span went towards grants for other organizations.
Nearly $110 million was paid out in the form of salaries and benefits to family and employees (family) while $25 million went towards travel expenses. Almost 60 percent of the organization’s disclosed revenue — or $290 million — was listed under the category of “other expenses.”
That pattern continued into 2013, of the $140 million in money the Clinton Foundation received in 2013, only $9 million (6.4%) was given out as charity for an average total of 10.7% per year over a 6 year period.
We have no idea what shoe will fall next. But to her loyal fans – “what difference does it make?”
What a swell party – ready for another four or eight year of this type low-life mess?
Very Excellent Recap of the disaster that awaits our Republic . . . unless Conservatives and Independents vote.
Don't forget . . . "the rodham" claimed they were broke when leaving office in 2001 . . . but left out the reason.
They spent millions keeping her sexual predator husband out of jail.
The worst part of the Clintons is that NOBODY knows the whole story, because while they were in Arkansas - from the time he was Lt. Governor - so much happened that was not published because Bubba owned the news media and the courts.... either keep quiet or disappear.
Don't forget the Benghazi Murders and "the rodham's" role in the destabilization of North Africa and pouring gasoline o the Middle East . . . then, of course, there's her incriminating EMails that were destroyed . . . she thinks, as the Chinese probably have a full backup so they can intimidate her if, heaven forbid, she is "selected" as our next President,
If so, the end of our Republic is the light at the end of the tunnel which is the train that will flatten everybody who possesses Common Sense.
Agreed! I hope we are NOT doomed...
You may not find this fitting. Buit i would implore you to think of death both wrong and right and peoples thoughts which direct our attention to that ending moment. i would also tell every one that you cant kill or bury an idea But when a stench which clouds the orfices and makes one draw back but yet is still smelled for long periods of time we soon get used to that putrid smell. AKA Hillary Clinton so i have thought and thought about what to write which would best serve her memory and i developed an anadote and this is it.
I have to share this with you because it is so moving!
Time is like a river. You cannot touch the water twice, because the
flow that has passed will never pass again. Enjoy every moment of life.
As a bagpiper, I play many gigs. Recently I was asked by a funeral
director to play at a graveside service for a homeless man. He had no
family or friends, so the service was to be at a pauper's cemetery in the Nova Scotia back country.
As I was not familiar with the backwoods, I got lost and, being a
typical man, I didn't stop for directions.
I finally arrived an hour late and saw the funeral guy had evidently
gone and the hearse was nowhere in sight. There were only the diggers
and crew left and they were eating lunch. I felt badly and apologized > > to the men for being late.
I went to the side of the grave and looked down and the vault lid was
already in place. I didn't know what else to do, so I started to play.
The workers put down their lunches and began to gather around. I played
out my heart and soul for this man with no family and friends. I played
like I've never played before for this homeless man.
And as I played "Amazing Grace", the workers began to weep. They wept,
I wept, we all wept together. When I finished, I packed up my bagpipes
and started for my car. Though my head was hung low, my heart was full.
As I opened the door to my car, I heard one of the workers say, "I
never in my life have seen or heard anything so moving as that song on those bagpipes , and guys I've been putting in these septic
tanks for twenty years."
Apparently, I'm still lost.... it's a man thing.
I always tell my friends one must evaluate HC in the aggregate behaviors of her public life/service and the picture is one that is putrid.
Many progressives are anti GMO, Vermont court just upheld GMO labeling of foods. Yet those same progressives will over look the fact that HC and Bill C. have a quid pro co you scratch my back and I will scratch yours with Monsanto.
It has been reported that Corning has paid out mega bucks to get HC while Secretary of State to ensure their entry in to China.
While I am not naive enough to believe that Republicans do not lie, connive, play the cronyism game in order to build their on wealth these behaviors of elected must come to an end, Democrat, Republican or a jolly green giant running for office.
Hillary Clinton was not a hit even with her Democratic colleagues while in the Senate. A good opinion piece written in the Huffington Post gives a glimpse of what lies ahead if HC is elected and that would be ever more divided government. I don't know but perhaps this is part of the grand plan.
Very few people know what is the grand plan... but, one thing I'm sure of..... it doesn't include us in the elite game.... we're just slop for the pig trough
Good article about the banking system....... and wars........
I've known since their "Fireside Chat" that the Clintons were nothing but liars, cheats and thieves. Yet, Die-hard dems voted them into Office. I say them because they were partners in crime. I realized then that most people cannot recognize evil. I thought the Clintons were the worst in my life-time until the KMart Harvard Degree Obama came on the scene. They could never have succeeded without the help of the media which were complicate in the degregation of society's morals. Do they know they are evil? Of cource they do, they just don't care about anyone but themselves. How can they live without morals? It's easy when you see yourself above the common people.
We know from history they are doomed. Life is only a minute period of time. What we see now as forever will pass as the light will strike like lightning to renew life once again. We have only one job. We need to continue to fight this evil in every way we can. We are luckier than any other time in our lives. We are not alone anymore.
The irony is that all the Clinton crimes in Arkansas were suppressed by the local and national media, then along comes Obama and the same thing happens; except that this time the GOP is part of the Congress responsible for the 2008 silent coup.
