If you're over 35, you lived through it, so read it and recollect. When Bill Clinton was president, he allowed Hillary to assume authority over an attempt to health care reform. Even after threats and intimidation, she couldn't get a vote in a Democrat controlled US Congress. This fiasco cost the American taxpayers about $13 million 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 Guanier's radical views, her name had to be withdrawn from consideration.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 voters 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.
What a swell person - ready for another four or eight years of this low-life fool?
Now we are exposed to the unsecure keeping and attempted destruction of beyond Top Secret emails while Hillary was US Secretary of State and the "pay to play" schemes of the Clinton Foundation. What "shoe will fall" next?
But to her loyal fans: "What difference does it make?"
Blog Author's Comments -- With all of the above I wonder what the problem is with the people who will vote for Hillary Clinton as the next president of the United States. Were these the same voters who put Obama in office twice? What has he done to make our country and their lives better? As Secretary of State, Clinton was a key figure, perhaps the leader, of the huge cover up which tried to sweep the Benghazi terrorist attack under the rug. Determined to blame the attack on a low-budget YouTube movie, her team spent weeks lying to the American people about why four Americans, including one ambassador, died on September 11th, 2012 in Libya.
Clinton managed to get out from under that mess which she could have and should have done something about by giving the Americans in Libya the resources to keep them safe. More security was requested many times but was ignored. Hillary has blood on her hands but it does not seem to bother her.
She also is guilty of having a private server in her home from which she sent classified information via email that is against the law. But, the FBI did not press the AG Lynch and her DOJ to file charges against her because of the fear of being blamed for removing the Democrat nominee for president from the race and the general election. Again, Clinton slithered out of more corruption. The evidence is all there and anyone who follows politics should know the type of person the Democratic Party has named to run for the highest office of our country.
I have only touched the surface along with the article above concerning Hillary Clinton and the person that she is. Again, how can the voters put her in the office of president? Hopefully enough of them will have enough sense when they go to the polls and cast their vote - to do so for Donald J. Trump. We desperately need a much different path than the one Clinton would continue on which would be the same direction that Obama has us on now. Think people, because the election of 2016 may well be the most important election our country has ever encountered. We need to save it from Hillary Clinton and the Democrats.
