Skip to comments.100 million reasons not to vote for Hillary

There are times when you really want to punch someone in the face. I had one of those moments the other day when I heard Bill Clinton yapping at the De Blasio inaugural. Clinton reminded me of why he is a good politician and why I despise him with all my being.
The De Blasio inaugural was remarkable for a number of things, New York City being a fecal, racist, third world plantation not the least among them. The speakers took turns pounding on Bloomberg as though New York City was Detroit:
Mayor de Blasios inaugural guests took turns beating up on former Mayor Mike Bloomberg at City Hall Wednesday even calling his reign a plantation that callously ignored New Yorks hungry children.
With the ex-mayor seated just feet away, in the front row of the dais, performer and civil-rights icon Harry Belafonte launched the first shot by calling the citys justice system Dickensian thanks to Bloombergs stop-and-frisk policy an apparent reference to de Blasios Tale of Two Cities campaign theme.
New York alarmingly plays a tragic role in the fact that our nation has the largest prison population in the world, he said, without mentioning that incarceration rates in the city had plummeted by 36 percent since Bloomberg took office in 2002.
Sanitation Department Chaplain Fred Lucas Jr. prayed that God free New Yorkers from the shackles of partisan politics and political correctness, and then went on to refer to the city as a plantation.
Let the plantation called New York City be the city of God, a city up on a hill, a light shining in darkness, he said. And Public Advocate Letitia James bragged that the citys Democratic victories were inevitable because of current conditions. The policies that made [the struggling class] voiceless must give way to a government that works for them, that speaks for them, that cares more about a child going hungry than a new stadium or a new tax credit for a luxury development that a majority of New Yorkers cant afford, James said.
She added that we live in a gilded age of inequality where decrepit homeless shelters and housing developments stand in the neglected shadow of gleaming multimillion-dollar condos.
She later insisted her rhetoric wasnt personal.
It was typically liberal- false and without class. It was so bad that even the NY Times, the official newspaper of Hillary Clinton, found it offensive.
Clinton's speech at De Blasio's inaugural really was an ushering in of Hillary's campaign and he sought to make clear that she was part of the Obama/Progressive class warfare movement:
This inequality problem bedevils the entire country, the former president continued, turning to DeBlasios major campaign themes. But it is not just a moral outrage, it is a horrible constraint on economic growth and on giving people the security they need to tackle problems like climate change.
You expect this from Bill Clinton. It was a tactical move. It was, in the current vernacular, a rebranding of Clinton's Presidency as well as a defining of Hillary's promise.
CNN reporter Dana Bash remarked no how fascinating it was to see Bill Clinton, a figure who rebranded Democrats as a centrist governing party in the 1990s, reframe his presidency as a champion of the causes of the left.
As you listen to Clintons comments, it seemed to me, first of all, that he was redefining his own presidency as being quite a bit more liberal than it actually was, Sabato observed. Its obvious hes doing it for Hillary, because if she has a fear, a challenge that can actually dethrone her in 2016, it may well come from the left, progressive, populist wing of the party.
Then Clinton went on to show what makes him so completely full of manure:
I strongly endorse Bill de Blasios core campaign commitment that we have to have a city of shared opportunities, shared prosperity, shared responsibilities.
I stare at the keys in front of me and none of them can really be struck in the proper sequence to convey how much I despise Bill and Hillary Clinton. When he says he believes in "shared prosperity" what he means is that he will share YOUR prosperity and shared responsibility means those of us who work hardest will bear the burden of responsibility. And it means higher taxes for those same people.
In anticipation of Hillary's 2008 Presidential aspirations the Clintons liquidated their stock portfolios- for entirely altruistic reasons, of course.
WASHINGTON, June 14 Concerned that their personal finances might become a political liability once again, Bill and Hillary Rodham Clinton in April sold the millions of dollars of stocks held by their blind trust after learning that those investments included oil and pharmaceutical companies, military contractors and Wal-Mart, their aides said Thursday.
The Clintons liquidated the trust valued at $5 million to $25 million and are leaving the proceeds for now in cash in an effort to eliminate any chance of ethical problems or political embarrassment from their holdings as Mrs. Clinton runs for the 2008 Democratic presidential nomination, their advisers said. By disposing of all their stocks, Mrs. Clinton was seeking to avoid potential conflicts of interest that might arise from legislation that she votes on in the Senate, as well as avoid holding financial stakes in companies and industries like Rupert Murdochs News Corporation, the owner of Fox News that could draw criticism from some Democratic voters.
Mrs. Clinton automatically became aware of her investments because of a government directive this spring that she, as a presidential candidate, had to dissolve her blind trust and disclose all of her assets to the public.
For his part, Bill has been thick with both Terry McAuliffe, who made millions on Global Crossing while investors suffered.
Jon Corzine, former Democrat Governor of New Jersey and confidante of the Clintons, "vaporized" over a billion dollars of investors' money.

I can think of 4 right now without trying
LOL! HG is kicking hard in the new year. Love it!
Happy New Year, HG!

#1. She’s Hillary Clinton!
Nice list you’ve compiled. I’m sure there are plenty of other scandals that can be added to it. Off the top of my head, the Mena Airport cocaine smuggling and the kids killed on the railroad tracks with the subsequent impossible autopsy result.
I posted a picture but it went into Internet space
The bad guy in this drama, according to the carriage drivers, is Steve Nislick, chief executive officer of a New Jersey-based real-estate development company, Edison Properties. The company "employs legions of lobbyists to influence city decisions on real estate and zoning in its favor," journalist Michael Gross reported in 2009, pointing out that two of Edison's businesses "have multiple locations in the same Far West Midtown neighborhood as the stables where the Central Park horses are housed." An anti-carriage pamphlet Nislick circulated in 2008 made this interesting observation: "Currently, the stables consist of 64,000 square feet of valuable real estate on lots that could accomodate up to 150,000 square feet of development. These lots could be sold for new development."
