Picked the body of this up from a troll through the archives, which pricked my conscience enough to bring it forth once again as a historical perspective for Millennials of just how dangerous and corrupt the failed Clintons really are. And seemingly, from the latest batch of Wikileaks, daughter Chelsea fits right into the same contemptible mold.
The Clintons have already been under the scrutiny of a special prosecutor once, back in the early/mid 1990s, and perhaps that’s why Hillary looked so terrified when Trump brought it up in the recent debates. If you’re under 50 you really need to read this. If you’re over 50, you lived through it, so share it with those under 50. Amazing to me how much I had (almost) forgotten!
Failed healthcare reform
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 Democrat-controlled congress. This fiasco cost the American taxpayers millions in costs for studies, promotion, and other efforts.
Failed/Flawed Attorney General
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, whom Bill described as “my worst mistake.” Some may not remember that Reno made the decision to gas and burn alive David Koresh and the Branch Davidian religious sect in Waco, Texas resulting in dozens of deaths of women and children from the gassing and subsequent fire.
Failed Head of the Civil Rights Commission
Husband Bill allowed Hillary to make recommendations for the head of the Civil Rights Commission. Lani Guinier was her selection, but when a little probing led to the discovery of Ms. Guinier’s radical views, her name had to be withdrawn from consideration.
Failed Justice Department/White House Staff/Treasury Department
Apparently a slow learner, husband Bill allowed Hillary to make some more recommendations. She chose former law partners Webb Hubbell for the Justice Department, Vince Foster for the White House staff, and William Kennedy for the Treasury Department. Her selections also went predictably well: Hubbell (also the presumed father of Chelsea) went to prison, Foster (presumably, and quite remarkably) committed suicide, and Kennedy was forced to resign.
Failed Travelgate (named after Nixon’s Watergate Break-in)
Many younger voters will have no knowledge of “Travelgate.” Hillary intended to award unfettered travel contracts to Clinton friend Harry Thompson, but the White House Travel Office refused to comply. In typical ruthless Hillary fashion, she managed to have them reported to the FBI and subsequently 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 act of mixing personal and White House funds. A jury acquitted him of any crime in less than two hours.
Failed Director of White House Security
Still not convinced of her ineptness, Bill allowed Hillary 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” as it was known) 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.
Failed (Shamed) the FBI when Liaison Office Closed in Embarrassment
Following this debacle, the FBI, out of embarrassment, closed its White House Liaison Office after more than thirty years of service to seven presidents.
Failed “Bimbo Eruption” and Scandal Defense
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 refused to release the Whitewater documents, which led to the appointment of Ken Starr as Special Prosecutor.
- She urged her husband not to settle the Paula Jones lawsuit. After the Starr investigation they settled with Ms. Jones.
- 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.
Failed Stealing From the White House
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 on the way out.
Failed Investigation on Incriminating Emails/Clinton Foundation
Now we are exposed to the destruction of possibly incriminating emails while Hillary was Secretary of State and the “pay to play” schemes of the Clinton Foundation, and We The People have no idea what shoe will fall next. But to her loyal fans – “what difference does it make?”
What a swell party indeed. Are you really ready for another four or eight year of this type of low-life mess? Elevating Hillary Clinton to the presidency would be like granting Satan absolution and giving him the keys to heaven!
Say it ain’t so, Joe.
