The Billionaires Start Lining Up Behind Hillary Clinton
Against Crony Capitalism.org ^ | February 2, 2014 | Staff

George Soros is on board. So are a bunch of other billionaires, many of whom are also denizens of Wall Street.

Why is it that so many of the 1% support so called “progressive” candidates? Why would they support those who seek to expand the footprint of government? Isn’t that against their interests?

It's just amazing the way white trash, subjected to inherent trailer-park sensibilities just doesn't know the first thing about how to be elegant, tasteful.

By 2016 she will look like an albino Jabba the Hut on HDTV.

And by then the Democrat Party will have moved so far to the left they won’t be buying what she’s selling. They’ll be in the market for someone more like DeBlasio or the Fake Indian.

She is a crooked lawyer who was fired from the watergate hearings.
She hooked up to a popular political figure and will gladly exchange law-changes, contracts and special favors for campaign cash.

That is easily the casse IMO.

I for one am tired of all the Kennedys, Bushes or Clintons.

Billionaires, cronies, Hollywood, Wall Street. She will amass record-setting campaign funds.

Cue the menacing music, grainly gray video, and war-on-womyn commercials against the GOP nominee...

In all this, the press may never ask her how will she deal with a burst Obama-Bernanke-Yellen bubble, a collapsed health care system, and a nuclear Iran.

The question is “Why?” What has a personally rather uncommunicative and not particularly attractive person in any way ever done to EARN their support? Herself, Madame Benghazi, the Cold & Joyless, would be NOBODY’S idea of an “ideal” candidate for ANYTHING, not even the Supreme Court.

Herself has been tarnished from a rather early age. In 1974, when working on the impeachment articles that were to be presented against Richard Nixon, Jerry Zeifman, general counsel and chief of staff of the House Judiciary Committee, then chaired by Peter Rodino, D-New Jersey, discovered the young legal aide, Ms. Rodham, tried to evade the set of rules set up for collecting evidence against the President, and told her to stop. She lied about the degree in which she sought to disable and sabotage the process, and was discharged from employment with the House Judiciary Committee, but that was all a moot point by then, as Nixon had resigned. Lead Attorney Zeifman stated that “I could not recommend her for any future position of public or private trust.”

And yet here it is, some forty years later, and Herself is now trustworthy? Who made that determination, and upon what have they based their calculations and revised judgment? Herself is a recidivist, beyond redemption and reformation, without a moral compass or any redeeming social qualities.

Much as I hate to suggest it, but perhaps the Current Occupant now squatting in the White Hut did history a favor, by playing a high card (race over gender) in displacing Herself from nomination for the Presidency in 2008. From then on, we could count on his overall incompetence to become the cipher he is, despite the mischief he has done anyway. Even George Soros tires of him and his whining behavior. Madame Benghazi’s whining is of a different order, and Herself may be a little more compliant, knowing how the stage is managed from behind the curtain.

But why have we allowed George Soros to call the shots? Is there still a direct line into the FBI files on various other personages of high office that are being held hostage to background information that could prove to be career-ending, if not merely embarrassing?

Such questions are not answered in public forums. They are answered in secret societies, blackmails, and far darker things. The only reason anyone ever "followed" Hillary is because they feared disobeying her. That's it - that's all she's got, and that's all she's ever had. And still, she's done nothing but screw even that up, time, after time, after time. Which is saying something, because she's been given so much time...

But this weekend was not beneficial for Her Thighness, and not beneficial for her entire system (to say the least). What remains to be seen is if anyone finally woke up. Personally, I see such efforts to raise the dead as a waste of effort, but I'm just a fool who sees things in black and white.

Hillary has never been as smart as her supporters want you to believe! If Benghazi is any example, I would rather she keep her ‘smarts’ somewhere else besides the oval office (again)!

Just an FYI...She also doesn’t like to bathe or wash her hair. If there isn’t someone to encourage her (make her) or do it for her it doesn’t get done, period.

***********

In his biography of Hillary Clinton, former Watergate reporter Carl Bernstein notes that in the summer of 1973, 817 people took the Washington, D.C., bar exam; 551 of them passed. Hillary Rodham was not one of them.

“For the first time in her life she had flamed out — spectacularly, given the expectations of others for her, and even more so her own,” Bernstein wrote.

Bernstein said Clinton kept the news hidden for 30 years and shocked some of her closest friends when she made the revelation with a passing reference in her 2003 autobiography, Living History. She even spins it into a positive.

“Despite the satisfaction of my work, I was lonely and missed Bill more than I could stand,” she wrote. “I had taken both the Arkansas and Washington, D.C., bar exams during the summer, but my heart was pulling me toward Arkansas. When I learned that I passed in Arkansas but failed in D.C., I thought that maybe my test scores were telling me something.”

So she followed Bill Clinton to Arkansas. She became a faculty member in the School of Law at the University of Arkansas, where Bill Clinton also taught. And in 1975, the two married.

Wrote Bernstein: “There can only be conjecture about what turn her life — and the nation’s — might have taken had she not failed the exam.” (GAG!)

But she did, and this statement is True.

Millions and millions of dollars to disseminate the propaganda of the hildahag being the most desirable and way ahead of ALL others who are seeking the WH. All that money JUST to make it appear as though she is the chosen one by the people but the reality is that the .001% are staging it all so they can get away with implementing massive VOTE FRAUD once again. The ruling elite will NEVER allow mere citizens to decide anything that might impact or diminish their power and wealth. The hildahag is their chosen person for the WH and calling her ruthless just doesn't quit describe the real hildahag. She's much worse.

Hillary's accomplishments, political resume doesn't really add up to much and the question you ask quite quizzically about her is more than approporiate. If you consider all the negative points, skeletons in her closet, not to mention the stench of murder that emanates from her political acquaintances, and then being married to Bill Clinton, what you get is a whole lot of less than nothin' going on and worse, as you've presciently pointed out.

The one thing that Hillary does have that enervates all her humongous negativity into one big desirable Democratic asset is Hillary's gravitas. This one factor, as something being very hard to quantify but whatever gives it its potency, viability acts as a "gravity lens", as exponential factor to make her overall nefarious persona much larger than the sum of its individual pieces of trash.
