"Hillary Clinton is one of the most accomplished people ever to run for the Presidency." Just ask Chuck Schumer.
After nearly forty years in public life, just what exactly are her accomplishments?
When Jen Psaki at the State Department was asked last year to “identify one tangible achievement” accomplished by any of Hillary Clinton’s key projects as Secretary of State Psaki punted, “I am certain that those who were here at the time, who worked hard on that effort, could point out one.”
How about Hillary’s supporters? Have they been stumped too? Bloomberg Politics’ Mark Halperin questioned an Iowan focus group this summer about Hillary Clinton’s accomplishments, a Democratic supporter said, “I honestly can’t say I followed along [with] everything that was going on.”
Carly Fiorina quipped at a debate " If you want to stump a Democrat, ask them to name an accomplishment of Hillary Clinton,” So could Fiorina be right? Democrats really can't name her accomplishments?
Well apparently she wasn't, (or was she? we'll see)
When Politico Magazine asked the nation’s top Democratic leaders and "thinkers" for Hillary Clinton’s biggest accomplishment. Many of these Democrats are Clinton allies and their answers fall in to 3 categories.
Some are actual programs she participated in that have become laws which you may or may not agree with.
Next is stated achievements which are absolutely debatable as to their benefit.
Last is vapid statements.
Among her apologists was Chuck Schumer, U.S. Senator for New York, Democratic party who declared:
‘Clinton is one of the most accomplished people ever to run’
The first thought that came to my mind was "I didn't know she was a marathon runner." He couldn't have actually meant she was one of the most accomplished people ever to run for President! Really? Well let's just look at the accomplishments Schumer cited that set Hillary apart from the run of the mill Presidential candidate.
According to Chucky:
Hillary Clinton was instrumental in helping secure $21 billion in federal aid to help New York rebuild after 9/11. She fought tooth and nail to protect the first responders who rushed into danger when the towers collapsed and was pivotal in the passage of legislation that helped those first responders who got sick get the care and treatment they deserved.
Of course you do remember Americans rising up and stating - no money for New York. Was there anybody arguing against taking care of the people of New York or the first responders after 9/11?To cite this kind of perception of accomplishment only validates Fiorina's comments.
Signing of the Lilly Ledbetter bill...Where is Hillary?
She worked night and day to protect and create jobs in New York, whether that was at the Niagara Falls Air Force base or the Center for Bioinformatics at the University of Buffalo. She also led the charge on the Lilly Ledbetter Pay Equity Act, which is now the law of the land.
Lots of people say Clinton was key in passing the Lilly Ledbetter Fair Pay Act of 2009, a bill submitted by Barbara Mikulski when the Congress opened and was passed in the early days of the Obama Administration by new Democratic majorities. 21 days after submittal Obama signed it. There was no significant dispute to passing this bill (sailing through both houses) and there is no reference anywhere in material related to the bill to work done by Clinton.
As Secretary of State, Secretary Clinton was not only inspirational figure for billions of women around the globe, she also did much to restore the shattered credibility of the United States, which had lost so much influence following the failed foreign policies of the previous administration. She negotiated the cease-fire in Gaza that stopped the Hamas from firing rocket after rocket into Israel. She helped secure the START treaty’s ratification, and has advanced women’s rights in countries around the globe.
An attack on Bush, but nothing of any achievement by Clinton. The fact is that our standing in the world has vastly declined under Clinton and Obama.The truce Clinton helped forge in Gaza fell apart less than two years later. Just how did she advance women's rights around the world when traveling on the State Department's dime to speak and collect donations from countries who have no respect for women's rights.
Chuck Schumer: "That’s just a snapshot of what Hillary Clinton has accomplished over a lifetime of public service to New York and the country. If you really want to stump a Democrat, you should ask them which of Hillary’s accomplishments is your favorite—there are too many to choose from."
Chucky, too many? Is that why when asked Hillary says this.
Too many to choose from! Ain't that the truth!
Chucky is right, Hillary has many, many accomplishments, too many to choose from. Maybe that's the excuse Chucky and Democrats give to ignore her other, unmentionable (in some circles) accomplishments which dwarf the ones they like to conjure up. Carly, it's not that they can't name her accomplishments, it's that they WON'T name her real accomplishments, the tangible accomplishments, accomplishments that moral people would be ashamed of but which apparently are the real ticket to the Democrat presidential candidacy because they are no secret except to the immoral and/or uninformed which are Hillary supporters and now the base of today's Democrat party .
It all started with the Watergate Committee.
Ever hear of Democrat Jerry Zeifman, a counsel and chief of staff of the House Judiciary Committee? If you are a Hillary supporter I'll bet you never heard of him. He was Hillary Clinton's supervisor on the Watergate investigation. Zeifman’s 2006 book, “Hillary’s Pursuit of Power,” states that she “… engaged in a variety of self-serving unethical practices in violation of House rules.” She was with the committee until it was disbanded following Nixon's resignation. Zeifman in his book says that he would have fired her if he had had the power. Zeifman said, “Hillary Clinton is ethically unfit to be either a senator or president — and if she were to become president, the last vestiges of the traditional moral authority of the party of Roosevelt, Truman and Johnson will be destroyed.” Zeifman refused to give her a letter of recommendation. “She was an unethical, dishonest lawyer,” Zeifman said. “She conspired to violate the Constitution, the rules of the House, the rules of the committee and the rules of confidentiality.”
As a 27-year-old working on the Watergate investigation she knowingly supplied erroneous legal opinions and tried to deny Nixon representation by legal counsel and she was unwilling to investigate Nixon, all prompted by concern Nixon would bring up abuses of office by President John Kennedy. She was working with Burke Marshall, Ted Kennedy’s chief counsel in the Chappaquiddick affair and Hillary’s former law professor; special counsel John Doar; and senior associate special counsel (and future Clinton White House counsel) Bernard Nussbaum in getting enough votes on the Judiciary Committee to change House rules and deny Nixon counsel. They worried putting E. Howard Hunt (the Watergate mastermind) on the stand because he might report on what he knew of nefarious activities in the Kennedy administration “including Kennedy’s purported complicity in the attempted
assassination of Fidel Castro,” according to Zeifman. In order to accomplish this, Zeifman said that Hillary wrote the fraudulent legal brief, and concealed public documents.
Although she didn't score points with Zeifman evidently she gained favor with the Democrat cabal who reward operatives with no morals to get the job they want done. This was her "accomplishment," to demonstrate to Democrat leadership how far she would go to get the job done for them.
The smartest woman in the world?
A rocky start at 27? It looks like it lead to the greatest achievement of her life!
Well Hillary at 27 years old her big achievement is becoming a hit-man for the Democrat Party, Quite an achievement! Even Wikipedia states "by then (1974), Rodham was viewed as someone with a bright political future by Democrats," no doubt because they now knew she'd do anything to get the job done for them.
Then in 1975 Hillary embarks on what for her career will be the crowning achievement. She decides to marry William Jefferson Clinton! She failed the District of Columbia bar exam (how could that be? the Democrat Party and mainstream news media have told us for years she is the smartest woman in the world) but after passing the Arkansas exam, Rodham made a key decision.She went where career prospects were brighter, with Bill Clinton to Arkansas, rather than staying in Washington,
If it were not for this key decision, marrying Bill Clinton, it is almost a certainty you would never have heard of Hillary Rodham, she'd never have been first lady or elected a senator, never would have run for President and would probably, if known at all by the public at large, could only have been involved in some sort of scandal as her Watergate committee reputation suggested.
So without her greatest achievement, marrying Bill Clinton, Hillary likely would never have been asked as a presidential candidate what her greatest achievement in government was, Chucky Schumer wouldn't have had to embrace the lie "Clinton is one of the most accomplished people ever to run" and YOU wouldn't be reading this Hub Page.
Bur I digress, let's get back to Hillary's other accomplishments of note. The list is sooooo long, we can't do it justice stopping with her crowning achievement, marrying Bill Clinton. Now that she has broke and saddled the horse she embarks on riding it all the way to the white house. No longer does she have to cow tow to the desires of the Democrat cabal, that has been replaced with her husband Slick Willie.
Yes, it seems her first job as Mrs. Clinton was to manage Bill's serial philandering. For you young women who "love" Hillary citing the fantasy of her support for women the press and Democrats like to herald, I implore you to take a closer look at the real Hillary Clinton, the person who was in charge of squelching the "bimbo" eruptions during Bill's administrations both as governor of Arkansas and in the white house. Ever hear about:
Gennifer and Monica.
Removal of Vince Foster documents.
Billing records. This implausible tale of Hillary's, along with more deceptions, led New York Times columnist William Safire to write in January, 1996, “our first lady … is a congenital liar.”
The White House press secretary said that Clinton wanted to punch Safire in the nose for insulting Hillary, his wife. But 5 days after, Bill invited Monica Lewinsky to the Oval Office. For what you may ask? Are you surprised that it turned out to be one of 10 of their oral-sex sessions. Shame on Safire for insulting his wife! Hey Bill, this punch is for you!
About two years after that, Hillary went on the “Today” show stating that her Slick Willie's Lewinsky affair was a lie concocted by “this vast right-wing conspiracy.”
For a careful look at these scandals at the center of which you find Hillary you can go here ...
or heck, just google each one! Hillary supporters, discover how easy it is to be informed, informed of Hillary's major accomplishment, throughout her career, to always tell a lie and not be honest! It is obvious, based on who is promoted to leadership positions in the Democrat party, this is a prime requisite and major achievement.
Well so much for the past, how about today, can a tiger change it's stripes?
Hmmmm, that would be a hard thing to do...without a lot of magic. Despite the fact if any Republican had ever even been simply accused of any one lie or scandal she has perpetrated it would absolutely be the end of their political career (but Hillary marches on!). If the press didn't destroy them the Republican party would have distanced itself from them simply on moral grounds. But if you are a Democrat the press ignores or spins the scandal the best they can and the Democrat cabal rewards the perpetrator for immorality, lies, and doing anything it takes to get the job done. If you don't know this fact then you are either naive, brainwashed, uninformed, or just don't care about the truth.
"I remember landing under sniper fire...we just ran with our heads down to get into the vehicles."
Take for example Hillary's outlandish lie (in her first presidential primary run) that she and Chelsea landed in Bosnia under sniper fire! The press had video taped the landing showing Hillary and Chelsea participating in a reception at the landing, the same reception she said had to be cancelled because of the sniper fire (watch the video). If any Republican had shared such a bald-faced lie of an account like this, including their daughter in the lie, they would have been excoriated by the press for child abuse. What did Hillary expect? For Chelsea to lie about it if she was asked by the press? I'm sure Hillary did expect Chelsea to lie or at least keep quiet, that's just how evil she is. Chelsea knows her place, of course she'd lie for her mother if she had to (maybe she learned her lesson in 1995 when she referred to the Secret Service as pigs, and said she learned it from her parents).
No matter how much magic the mainstream media and the Democrat cabal come up with it only amounts to smoke and mirrors, a rewriting of history and more lies. A look at her "accomplishments" as Secretary of State clearly demonstrates that this Tiger hasn't changed her stripes at all, that would be impossible even with a lot of magic.
CAUSED Seal Team Six deaths?
OK, by now if you don't know the difference between Ben Gazi and Benghazigate prepare to be enlightened because this entire fiasco of Hillary Clinton's pretty much demonstrates that this tiger can not change it's stripes. However her fangs have gotten longer and based on her handling of her emails and the entire Benghazi situation she might as well have sunk her fangs into their necks herself.
This sums it up, just listen to Hillary Clinton tell lie, after lie, after lie ...
...after lie, after lie.
Now, knowing what you now know about Hillary, what about those speeches?
Bloomberg reported since leaving the State Department, Clinton “earned at least $12 million” from speaking fees and book contracts in less than a year and a half. Making at least $200,000 a speech ($275,000 was the price the University of Buffalo paid for Clinton to speak at an event). And Bill Clinton, has made in speaking fees alone at least $105 million (some paid as much as $750,000, is that premium what you pay to listen to a voice that doesn't make you wish you were deaf?) since he left the White House. Bloomberg pointed out that Hillary’s “earnings were big enough to not only rank her in the top 1% of the nation’s earners but in the top 1/100th of the 1 percent.
Do you really think anyone on earth would pay that kind of money just to hear Hillary (or Bill) speak? In Hillary's case what would you pay to listen to nails on a chalkboard for 1 hour? $200, 000? $100,000, $50,000, $10, a penny? NOT EVEN! It's no secret many people hate Hillary Clinton’s voice. She's often accused of sounding like a “nagging housewife” and her yelling too much is a “turn-off”. Why do you think she gives so few speeches to the public and media on the campaign trail and the Democrat debates are always on a Saturday? They don't want people to hear her voice, as little as possible.
Then of course there is her phony accent in front of certain audiences.
Hey, y’all! The week has only just begun, & y’all lookin' plumb tuckered out. Well just set a spell & listen to the piercing shrieks of a creepy old lady who's a thinkin' it’s her turn to tell y’all what t'do? Uh huh, uh huh, uh huh!
Just Google "Hillary's fake dialect" and get a load of her faking accents in front of crowds from southerners to blacks and British (fail), 8 years apart her southern accent returns! How phony? To what lengths can one politician go just to get a job done? Hillary has broken all the records.
Not forgetting that Hillary said in an interview that she and Bill were broke when they left the White House, Clinton says that the money earned for university speeches does not go to her but is donated to the Bill, Hillary, and Chelsea Clinton Foundation, the charity organization named after Bill, Hillary, and Chelsea and run by Bill, Hillary, and Chelsea (gee, that sounds on the up and up). Now given what we know of Hillary's "morality" starting with her unethical behavior at the Watergate committee and almost every year of the 40 following bringing new lies and scandals with it along with ending with the criminal lies about her destruction of government emails do you really believe her millions in speech payments went to charity? Millions to charity after being dead broke? Dead Broke to millions to charity, what a miracle!
Well as Gommer Pyle (not a close friend of Hillary's) would say:
WELL SURPRISE! SURPRISE! LISTEN TO THIS SARGE!
Reported by ABC, Hillary Clinton has been unable to provide documentation of the speaking fees donation to the foundation. The Clinton Foundation’s Form 990s shows no disclosure of who major donors were and so no information is available as to whether Hillary Clinton (or for that matter Bill Clinton) has donated any speaking fees to their philanthropy. (The most recent Clinton Foundation 990 publicly obtainable is from tax year 2012.)
Because Hillary Clinton is just about guaranteed by the Democrat Party to run for the presidency so her nonprofit and public universities speaking fees raise questions about what the universities (or some of their well-healed donors) might want from the Clintons. In other words, Hillary Clinton is “repurposing” by her speech revenues the donations people are making—or taxpayers are making—to these colleges and universities.
Nawwww! how could that be? She is such a beacon of immora..., whoops I meant morality...(a Freudian slip, excuse me).
The Untold Story of How and Why Foreign Governments and Businesses Helped Make Bill and Hillary Rich
I'll let you read this review of the book by Peter Schweitzer. At the end of Clinton Cash, Schweizer concludes that “money carries a serious weight, gather enough weight and you can intimidate most people into not questioning how you got it.”
The truth is the Clintons are either corrupt or skillful opportunists! The truth requires a deeper federal investigation but since Loretta Lynch, the new US Attorney General, was a Bill Clinton appointee for US Attorney for the Eastern District of New York, a Department of Justice (DOJ) probe is not likely. Given the history we know of Hillary's accomplishments as I have presented them, 40 years of unethical behavior, what's your (now) educated guess?
Hillary's email scandal
Well, we're not done yet. Hillary Clinton could be indicted for breaking 8 laws. Gee, could these laws have anything to do with LYING, Hillary's second (next to marrying Bill) greatest achievement? She, and some of her senior staff, should be indicted for violation of a bunch of federal criminal statutes.
1.) 18 U.S. Code § 793 – Gathering, transmitting or losing defense information
18 U.S. Code § 798 – Disclosure of classified information
2.) U.S. Code § 1924 – Unauthorized removal and retention of classified documents or material
3.) 18 U.S. Code § 2071(b) — Concealment, removal, or mutilation generally
4.) 18 U.S. Code § 641 – Public money, property or records
5.) 18 U.S. Code § 1505 – Obstruction of proceedings before departments, agencies, and committees
6.) 18 U.S. Code § 1519 — Destruction, alteration, or falsification of records in federal investigations
7.) 18 U.S. Code § 1031 — Fraud against the United States
18 U.S. Code § 1343 – Fraud by wire, radio or television
18 U.S. Code § 1346 — Definition of “scheme or artifice to defraud”
18 U.S. Code § 371 – Conspiracy to defraud the United States
8.) 18 U.S. Code § 371 – Conspiracy to commit a federal offense
Despite that this Administration has a history of vigorously prosecuting and winning convictions in criminal violations of the public trust Hillary (& senior aides) won't be investigated by this Department of Justice, much less indicted.
Obama will allow them to “tough it out” until political and/or public opinion costs become too great. Then President Obama will just use his famous pen to issue a pardon making a formal mockery of any concept of equal justice.
Another Hillary accomplishment underway but soon to be added to her long list of 40 years of unethical, immoral, behavior at the expense of the public trust. Viva La Dépravation.
So far a lot of serious stuff, huh? How about a little fun!
