Skip to comments.Hillary! Because What Difference Does it Make?

Watching Hillary get a Liberty Medal on September 10, the day before the anniversary of the attack on the United States soil and the more recent murder of our ambassador and others in Benghazi, I think it's time to review the record of a woman whose life is marked by deceit and professional failure and ask about the sanity and judgment of her ardent supporters.
From Wellesley she went to Yale law school after which she moved to Washington, D.C. to take a job with the House Judiciary Committee investigating Watergate. She was fired from her job and from that point on distinguished herself as a public master of mendacity.
Jerry Zeifman, a lifelong Democrat, supervised the work of the 27-year-old, fired her, and has explained why:
"Because she was a liar," Zeifman said in an interview last week. "She was an unethical, dishonest lawyer. She conspired to violate the Constitution, the rules of the House, the rules of the committee and the rules of confidentiality."
What difference does it make? It should seem obvious that she does not feel constrained to follow ethical or legal constraints, and therefore presents a danger whenever she finds herself in a position to exercise power.
At about the same time, Hillary failed the District of Columbia bar exam, hardly one of the more difficult bar exams in the country. What difference does it make? I realize that many voters have uncritically adopted Bill Clinton's description of her as "the smartest woman in the world", but except at deceit, self-promotion, and self-enrichment she is a repeat, proven failure whenever tested.

This article does a good job of summarizing some of the World's Smartest
Woman's many accomplishments ... but what difference does it make?
SHAME on the Bush clan for facilitating this charade
This cold greedy incompetent alinksy communist eyeballed the Benghazi mothers and LIED to them over the coffins of their sons about the deaths of their sons
It doesn’t get any colder than this woman’s heart
All anyone needs to know about Hillary is that Bill Clinton said she was his “moral compass.”
She would love to take back the office she feels entitled to, but I think she will hesitate to run. Does she really want to listen to the commercials: “Vote for Hillary because (video of her own words) ‘what difference does it make?’”
This is disgusting! The Bush family is telling us who they are — and I can not respect any of them any more.
The globalist elite ptb are showing their arrogance and disconnect from reality.
America has hit the bottom with Obama in the White House.
Hillary as president would protect Obama’s legacy.
Hillary's fingerprints are all over Benghazi and Syria. It's time to lay the rubble at Hillary's doorstep.
The Democrats' 'Smart Power' Lies in Ruins
National Review | Sept 3, 2013 | Jim Geraghty / FR Posted by kristinn
Democrats Suddenly Realize What They Miscalculated About the World: Everything
As we await Congress decision on authorizing the use of U.S. military force in Syria, Democrats are suddenly realizing that their foreign policy brain-trust completely misjudged the world.
Being nicer to countries like Russia will not make them nicer to you. The United Nations is not an effective tool for resolving crises. Some foreign leaders are beyond persuasion and diplomacy. There is no international community ready to work together to solve problems, and there probably never will be.
You can pin this on Hillary Clinton, John Kerry, Susan Rice, but most of all, the buck stops with the president. Those of us who scoffed a bit at a state senator ascending to the presidency within four years on a wave of media hype and adoration are not quite so shocked by this current mess.
We never bought into this notion that getting greater cooperation from our allies, and less hostility from our enemies, was just a matter of giving this crew the wheel and letting them practice, as Hillary Clinton arrogantly declared it, smart power (and fronted Time magazine cover).
(These people cant even label a foreign policy approach without reminding us of how highly they think of themselves.)
They looked out at the world at the end of the Bush years, and didnt see tough decisions, unsolvable problems, unstable institutions, restless populations, technology enabling the impulse to destabilize existing institutions, evil men hungry for more power, and difficult trade-offs.
No, our problems and challengers were just a matter of the previous hands running U.S. foreign policy not being smart enough. (Excerpt) Read more at nationalreview.com ...
Early on when I didn’t know much and Hillary was being touted as the “smartest woman in America”, someone in Arkansas laughed and told me “she’s not even the smartest woman in Little Rock.”
You make a good point. She DOES NOT want another loss.
She DOES know that if she does win Bill will be boinking his way through every female in the vicinity of the Oval Office.
Besides, Hillary always wants to lead. It just wouldn't look right with HER leading the waltz, Bill's arms wrapped around like a woman's arms. :o)
Oh my, did he really say that?
Bill is, was and always will be, SUCH a crafty liar.
(Groan) how many ways can the conniving Clintons use their name to make money?
The William J. Clinton Family Foundation......
the Clinton Global Health Initiative......
the Clinton Health Action Initiative (CHAI).
Do they really need three foundation (well, yes, if you need huge slush funds to run a campaign).
The Clintons' 24/7 self-promotion is a familiar do-good liberal schtick: whining about "helping the needy," and willing to make a buck on it.
CAN YOU SAY WIRE TRANSFER? POLITICAL PONZI SCHEME?The more we examine the Clintons perpetual fund-raising---people tossing huge amts of money into the Clinton money machine----the more this resembles a money-laundry and tax evasion machine.
NOTE The IRS has targeted tax-exempt foundations as prime fraud vehicles. The biggest fraud is one foundation writing a check to another foundation---the way the crooks siphon off tax-free money for themselves.
I read that book about her written a while back by ???
It was very unflattering.
WHO was that guy?
There needs to be a thorough going-over of the three Clinton Foundations funding. We need to know who pays/funds the Clinton's real lifestyle especially now that there is talk of Hillary running for prez. It is important to know to whom the Clinton's are truly indebted.
As President, Bill Clinton made policies that raised hundreds of billions (if not trillions) of dollars for his obscenely-rich donor/pals.
His North American Free Trade initiative made it easy for, and even encouraged, corporations to outsource jobs and then import their products back into the U.S...... The repeal of Glass-Steagall on his watch sent Wall Street into the money-making frenzy that led to the Great Recession/Depression of 2008......and subsequent taxpayer bailouts.
In exchange for these obscene gifts of corporate welfare, at the expense of America's middle and working classes, you'd think the Clintons' rich friends would have no trouble coughing up a mere $250 million endowment for the foundation.
Now it seems, the captains of crony capitalism are begging off....they just don't feel they have enough money to help their old friends Bill and Hillary secure their so-called "legacy."
Sen Charles Grassley (R-Iowa) is probing longtime Hillary Rodham Clinton aides employment status, asking how Huma Abedin got a sweetheart deal as a private six-figure consultant while at the State Department.
Abedin is married to disgraced ex-Rep. Anthony Weiner, now in the NYC mayoral race. The two hauled in as much as $350,000 in outside income on top of Abedins $135,000 government salary after Weiner quit Congress over a sexting scandal.
Abedin was assigned special government employee status, and was able to haul in cash as a private contractor. One of her clients was Teneo Holdings, a consulting firm founded by Bill Clinton aide Doug Band.
Teneos Web site calls itself the next chapter in strategic advisory,
NOTE: Last Dec, a former MF Global employee accused former president Clinton----chairman of Teneo's advisory board----of collecting $50,000 per month through his Teneo advisory firm in the months before MFG careened towards its Halloween filing for Chapter 11 bankruptcy, as hundreds of millions of investor funds disappeared, reports Human Events.
Teneo was hired by MF Globals former CEO Jon S. Corzine to improve his image and to enhance his connections with Clintons political family, said the employee, who asked that his name be withheld because he feared retribution, according to HE. The Teneo contract with MF Global lasted at least five months, the souce said. The board cancelled it after Corzine resigned.
The source, who is no longer associated with MF Global, said Teneo is a dual- track company with one side devoted to merchant and investment banking and the other side set up to provide image and strategy consulting services.
The trustee for investors later sued JPMorgan bank for return of about $450M that MFG had transferred to the bank.
L/E needs to mobilize the Bank Secrecy Act on the Clinton Foundations---banks are required to establish, implement and maintain programs designed to detect and report suspicious activity indicative of money laundering and other financial crimes.
The Bank Secrecy Act was enacted to protect the public from harm by identifying and detecting money laundering from criminal enterprises, terrorism, tax evasion or other unlawful activities.
The "Holy Family."
I still expect dumBO will ignore the 22nd Amendment and appoint himself to a third, forth and hereditary term, it remains to be seen if Hitlery can run on the third Odungo term. She has to, at some point, come out opposed to the policies of POSOTUS.
