Senate Republicans Want to Hear From Lynch about “E-mailgate”. While You’re At It, How About “Foundationgate”, too?

June 19, 2017

Wouldn’t it be nice to see a public figure who actually deserves it, be called in front of a Congressional Investigative Committee, for a change?

It’s time to turn the heat up on Hillary.

Thehill.com reported yesterday that

Senate Republicans are clamoring to hear from Loretta Lynch after former FBI Director James Comey raised concerns about her involvement in the Hillary Clinton Hillary Rodham email investigation.
 
Republicans on the Senate Judiciary Committee are seizing on Comey’s testimony earlier this month that he was concerned over the former attorney general telling the FBI to refer to the Clinton investigation as a “matter,” which resembled the Clinton campaign line.
 
The move could allow Republicans to attempt to pivot away from the investigation into Russia’s election meddling — which top GOP lawmakers have signaled belongs to the Intelligence Committee — and focus on Lynch, who has long been a target of Republicans.
 
Sen. John Cornyn, the No. 2 Senate Republican who is a member of both the Intelligence and Judiciary committees, said it “would be very helpful” for Lynch to testify before the Judiciary panel, which oversees the Justice Department.
 
“Frankly, a lot of what Hillary Clinton was exposed to by Director Comey’s misconduct and the way he handled that was apparently in response to his lack of confidence in the attorney general, and I think there is a lot we could learn from that,” Cornyn said.
 
Sen. Lindsey Graham also wants to hear from Lynch and is pushing for the Judiciary Committee to “get more involved.”

“The accusations now that … the current and former attorney general were political — that has nothing to do with Russia as much as it has to do with how the Department of Justice is being run,” he said. “I want to find out all about that.”

A spokesman for Sen. Chuck Grassley, the Judiciary Committee chairman, stressed that no decisions have been made and staffers needed to first “gather evidence.”

But the spokesman said it was “likely” after Comey’s remarks before the intelligence panel that Lynch’s testimony before the Judiciary Committee “will become necessary at some point.”

President Trump has seized on the Obama administration official as the federal investigation into possible ties between his campaign and Russia heats up.

“A.G. Lynch made law enforcement decisions for political purposes…gave Hillary Clinton a free pass and protection. Totally illegal!” Trump tweeted this week.

Other Trump allies, including the Republican National Committee, have also questioned Lynch’s behavior.

“Why is no one investigating Attorney General Lynch’s Department of Justice for obstruction of justice in the Clinton email investigation. .. .There is compelling evidence to back up the claim that AG Lynch engaged in obstruction of justice,” read one RNC talking point leaked to a Washington Post reporter this week.

The talking points were in response to a Post report that after Comey’s firing last month, special counsel Robert Mueller is investigating whether Trump obstructed justice.

A spokesman for Sen. Ted Cruz said the Texas Republican would “absolutely” support Lynch testifying.

“Well, I kind of would like to get the whole thing behind us, but she should be interrogated [by a committee] because there’s some real questions about whether her actions were proper,” Sen. Orrin Hatch Orrin HatchSenate GOP shifts focus to LynchSen. Hatch jokes he was behind Nickelback prank on Sen. SasseUtah GOP narrows field for Chaffetz seat MORE (R-Utah) said when asked if Lynch should testify as part of a larger obstruction of justice probe.

Comey apparently raised concerns about Lynch before he was fired. He told the Judiciary Committee in early May that he had been worried the Justice Department couldn’t “credibly” decline to prosecute Clinton without “grievous damage to the American people’s confidence in the justice system.”

He also privately told Intelligence Committee members that he confronted Lynch on whether she had agreed to shut down the FBI’s investigation. Comey worried her controversial meeting with former President Bill Clinton Bill ClintonSenate GOP shifts focus to Lynch had created a conflict of interest, according to Circa, a website tracked closely by conservative media.

Though GOP lawmakers have long been wary of Lynch, placing her back in the spotlight could backfire if it also keeps the public’s focus on Comey amid continued fallout over the FBI chief’s firing in early May.

Grassley has signaled that potential obstruction of justice during the Obama administration should be included in the committee’s work. The GOP chairman has argued that such a move is relevant because the Trump White House initially pointed to Comey’s handling of the Clinton email investigation to justify his firing.

“The Committee is examining the removal of Director Comey and allegations of improper influence on the FBI’s handling of the Russia and Clinton email investigations. In his recent appearances before both the Senate Judiciary and Intelligence Committees, Mr. Comey raised issues about whether these investigations were subjected to inappropriate political influence,” said Taylor Foy, a spokesman for the Iowa Republican.

GOP senators appeared surprised by Grassley’s decision to expand his committee’s investigation, which would also include looking at potential political interference by Trump’s Justice Department into FBI investigations.

The move comes after some Republican members of the committee were already skeptical of Grassley’s threat to subpoena Comey to testify before the Judiciary Committee after the former FBI director met with the intelligence panel.

The two Senate panels are conducting separate investigations into Russia’s election meddling, which includes Comey’s firing. But Sen. Richard Burr, the Intelligence Committee chairman, said his panel would steer clear of investigating obstruction of justice, telling CNN that it has “never been part of our” probe.

Any push to pivot to Lynch and the Clinton email investigation would also likely spark pushback from Democrats, who are increasingly frustrated by the lack of progress on the committee’s push to get answers on Russia’s election interference and Comey’s firing.

Sen. Dianne Feinstein, the Judiciary Committee’s top Democrat, signaled that the panel should look into whether Lynch tried to downplay the FBI’s investigation into Clinton’s email setup.

“I think we need to know more about that. And there’s only way to know about it, and that’s to have the Judiciary Committee take a look at that,” she told CBS in a recent interview.

But she’s also called for bringing in a swath of top Trump administration’s officials, including Attorney General Jeff Sessions. Other top Democratic lawmakers have held off endorsing digging into Lynch.

Asked about Feinstein’s comments to CBS, Senate Minority Leader Charles Schumer sidestepped saying he wanted to hear from the former Obama official.

“Well, before I say anything further on this, I want to hear what Loretta Lynch’s side of the story is. I haven’t heard that yet,” he told reporters.

Sen. Dick Durbin added he wanted to talk to Feinstein but warned against rehashing Clinton scandals when “we have a front-and-center investigation that relates to the national security of the United States.”

“Going back in the previous administration, I guess all of us have some questions about it, but we have a current investigation that is front and center in the American people’s attention span, and that’s what we ought to focus on,” he said.

Of course, the Democrats don’t want to “Rehash Clinton Scandals”.

While there is no “There” there, regarding the Democrats’ Quixotic Quest to find some sort of Russian Collision on the part of President Trump, to justify their candidate, Hillary Clinton’s failure to win the presidency, there is plenty “there” as pertains to her involvement in “E-mailgate” and “Foundationgate”.

  1. E-mailgate – Foxnews.com  reported on August 1st of last year that

    Hillary Clinton is getting hammered for saying on “Fox News Sunday” that FBI Director James Comey confirmed her statements on her email scandal were “truthful” – with one prominent fact-checker giving the claim four “Pinocchios.”

    The former secretary of state cited Comey when asked to account for her repeated claims that she never sent or received material marked classified on her personal email account. When host Chris Wallace noted that Comey said those things were not true, Clinton disagreed.

    “That’s not what I heard Director Comey say … Director Comey said that my answers were truthful and what I’ve said is consistent with what I have told the American people, that there were decisions discussed and made to classify retroactively certain of the emails,” she said.  

    The Washington Post Fact Checker picked apart that statement, ultimately giving it four “Pinocchios,” its worst rating for truthfulness.

    “Clinton is cherry-picking statements by Comey to preserve her narrative about the unusual setup of a private email server. This allows her to skate past the more disturbing findings of the FBI investigation,” the Post wrote, noting that she was relying on Comey’s statement to Congress: “We have no basis to conclude she lied to the FBI.”

    However, the FBI director did not say the same about her statements to the American public. And during testimony before a House committee, Comey said it was “not true” that nothing Clinton sent or received was marked classified. To the contrary, he said, “there was classified material emailed.”

    The Post concluded: “While Comey did say there was no evidence she lied to the FBI, that is not the same as saying she told the truth to the American public — which was the point of Wallace’s question. Comey has repeatedly not taken a stand on her public statements.

    “And although Comey did say many emails were retroactively classified, he also said that there were some emails that were already classified that should not have been sent on an unclassified, private server. That’s the uncomfortable truth that Clinton has trouble admitting

  2. Foundationgate – Just how corrupt was the pipeline between the Clinton Foundation and then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton? Per discoverthenetworks.org,

    By the time Clinton left office in February 2013, the charity had received millions of dollars in new or increased payments from at least seven foreign governments. Five of the governments came on board during her tenure as secretary of state while two doubled or tripled their support in that time, according to data provided by CHAI spokeswoman Daley…CHAI should have told the State Department before accepting donations totaling $340,000 from Switzerland’s Agency for Development and Cooperation in 2011 and 2012. However, it did not believe U.S. authorities needed to review the other six governments, including Britain and Australia, she said, citing various reasons.” [Reuters, 3/19/15]

However, it was not just governments who sent money to the Clintons through their Foundation. Again, according to discoverthenetworks.org…

* “The Clinton Foundation swore off donations from foreign governments when Hillary Clinton was secretary of state. That didn’t stop the foundation from raising millions of dollars from foreigners with connections to their home governments, a review of foundation disclosures shows. Some donors have direct ties to foreign governments. One is a member of the Saudi royal family. Another is a Ukrainian oligarch and former parliamentarian. Others are individuals with close connections to foreign governments that stem from their business activities. Their professed policy interests range from human rights to U.S.-Cuba relations.” [Wall Street Journal, 3/19/15]

* During Secretary Clinton’s tenure at the State Department, “More than a dozen foreign individuals and their foundations and companies were large donors to the Clinton Foundation… collectively giving between $34 million and $68 million…. Some donors also provided funding directly to charitable projects sponsored by the foundation, valued by the organization at $60 million.” [Wall Street Journal, 3/19/15]

With the revelation of “the gift” of massive quantities of Uranium to the Russians or the formation of an Iranian Connection, as a result of money given to the Clinton Foundation,  as was previously  reported in 2015, or the later revelation involving “dual-staffer” Cheryl Mills, “FoundationGate” caught the attention of the American Public as a scandal involving money and unscrupulous political ladder-climbing through the peddling of “favors”, the actions of Hillary Clinton as Secretary of State crossed the line into the abhorrent abyss of a Conflict of Interest involving possible Treason.

Time and time again, from Watergate to Travelgate to Benghazigate, and most recently with E-mailgate and the Clinton Foundation, Hillary Clinton has proven to be a ruthless, untrustworthy, Machiavellian professional politician, who only cared about herself and her planned ascension to the Presidency of the United States of America.

As I have previously written, Clinton’s trail of corruption leads all the way back to when she was fired from the Watergate Investigative Committee for dishonesty.

However, to use public servers to transmit Top Secret Information which endangered American Operatives and to have the hutzpah to practice “Pay-For-Play” on a Global Scale, while holding the Office of Secretary of State of the United States of America, Clinton showed herself to be downright treasonous.

So, Republican Members of Congress, it is time to turn up the heat and to fight fire with fire.

American Voters elected Trump…and those same American Voters can send you home.

Time to get up off your keisters and to defend President Trump.

And, the best defense is a good offense.

it is way past time for a THOROUGH investigation of the nefarious actions of Former United States Secretary of State Hillary Clinton.

What’s “good” for the winner of the 2016 Presidential Election…is much better for the loser.

“What difference at this point does it make?”

Well…perhaps it would make all of the Liberals who have been throwing a National Temper Tantrum hollering “Russia, Russia, Russia” for seven months with no proof whatsoever to back them up to hold their breath until they turn blue…and pass out.

Ahhh…blessed silence.

Like when a baby cries themselves to sleep.

Until He Comes,

We Have One Day in Which to Decide America’s Future: Who Do You Trust With It?

November 7, 2016

can-not-lie-nrd-600a

Money and corruption are ruining the land, crooked politicians betray the working man, pocketing the profits and treating us like sheep, and we’re tired of hearing promises that we know they’ll never keep. – Ray Davies

Tomorrow, Americans will choose the person who will lead our country for the next four years. That journey will either be one which will restore the luster of “The Shining City on a Hill” or complete its transformation into the Socialist Utopia of a Third World Barrio.

That being said, the question that I have for you today, boys and girls, is

Who do you trust?

KAKE, an ABC Affiliate relates the following report from CNN…

STERLING HEIGHTS, Michigan (CNN) — Donald Trump urged voters Sunday to “deliver justice at the ballot box” on Election Day, hours after the FBI announced that its review of newly discovered emails did not change its earlier conclusion to not recommend charges against Hillary Clinton.

Trump, speaking at a rally here, did not directly refer to FBI Director James Comey’s announcement. But his remarks amounted to his first public response to the decision, and the Republican nominee argued that Clinton is “guilty” of federal crimes and said a “rigged” system was protecting Clinton.

“Hillary Clinton is guilty. She knows it, the FBI knows it, the people know it, and now it’s up to the American people to deliver justice at the ballot box on November 8,” Trump said. “Unbelievable. Unbelievable how she gets away with it.”

Trump also cast doubt on Comey’s conclusions, just over a week after the Republican nominee praised the FBI director for announcing the review of the emails, which were discovered as part of the bureau’s investigation into Anthony Weiner’s sexting.

“Right now, she is being protected by a rigged system. It’s a totally rigged system. You can’t review 650,000 emails in eight days. You can’t do it folks,” Trump said, mischaracterizing the number of emails the FBI was reviewing for connections into the private server Clinton used as secretary of state.

The FBI took custody of electronic devices containing 650,000 emails in its investigation into Weiner, the estranged husband of Clinton aide Huma Abedin, but identified a smaller subset of those emails as linked to Clinton.

The FBI announced Sunday that its review of those emails had not changed the conclusions it reached over the summer, when Comey recommended no charges be filed after a year-long investigation into Clinton’s use of a private email server, even though he called her handling of classified information “extremely careless.”

Still, even as the FBI cleared Clinton for the second time, Trump argued that “the investigations into her crimes will go on for a long time.”

“The rank-and-file special agents at the FBI won’t let her get away with her terrible crimes,” Trump said.

Trump served up his first response to the FBI’s announcement on Sunday before a packed and rowdy crowd of supporters at an amphitheater in this Detroit suburb, where supporters cheered loudly and belted a raucous cry of “Lock her up! Lock her up!” as Trump addressed his rival’s email controversy.

Trump will return to Michigan — which hasn’t voted for a Republican presidential nominee since 1988 — once more before voters head to the polls on Tuesday, holding his final campaign rally in the state on Monday night.

Trump is trailing in the polls here, but advisers to the billionaire’s campaign have argued that they see an opening to make inroads.

Former President Bill Clinton stumped in the state on Sunday as Democrats look to protect the state from falling in the Republican column, and the Democratic nominee herself will also hold a rally in Michigan on Monday.

What Americans have witnessed during the FBI’s lackadaisical investigation of Hillary Clinton’s Scandal, known as E-mailgate, is an unequal application of the rule of law as applies to Professional Politicians in general and, in this case, specifically, a former member of the Obama Administration.

Recently, the CBS Morning News presented a poll in which 60% of Americans believed that Clinton lied about her mishandling of emails containing top secret information which could have potentially put the lives of our military and covert operatives at risk.

Now, that was a CBS poll, which of course is weighted heavily in favor of Liberals, so you can imagine how folks like you and me out here in Flyover Country feel about the situation.

Our government was never meant to be a feudal system. America remains a Constitutional Republic.

American  Politicians were never meant to be Lords, who would remain in power in perpetuity. Our Founding Fathers envisioned Citizen Statesman, who after serving their country and their communities for a short period of time, would return to their homes, to their families, and to their trades.

What has happened during the investigation of this breach of our National Security is a prime example of why our Founders set up the System of Checks and Balances that they did when they were constructing our system of government.

Obama, the Department of Justice, and the Clintons circumvented that system with a series of maneuvers carried out between the White House, the Campaign Staff, and a private jet idling on a Tarmac at an airport.

Simply put, Hillary Rodham Clinton cannot be trusted with the Office of the Presidency of the United States of America.

On Jan. 8, 1996, in a still-relevant commentary titled“Blizzard of Lies,” New York Times columnist William Safire described Hillary Clinton as “a congenital liar.”

Americans of all political persuasions are coming to the sad realization that our First Lady — a woman of undoubted talents who was a role model for many in her generation — is a congenital liar. Drip by drip, like Whitewater torture, the case is being made that she is compelled to mislead, and to ensnare her subordinates and friends in a web of deceit.

1. Remember the story she told about studying The Wall Street Journal to explain her 10,000 percent profit in 1979 commodity trading? We now know that was a lie told to turn aside accusations that as the Governor’s wife she profited corruptly, her account being run by a lawyer for state poultry interests through a disreputable broker.

She lied for good reason: To admit otherwise would be to confess taking, and paying taxes on, what some think amounted to a $100,000 bribe.

2. The abuse of Presidential power known as Travelgate elicited another series of lies. She induced a White House lawyer to assert flatly to investigators that Mrs. Clinton did not order the firing of White House travel aides, who were then harassed by the F.B.I. and Justice Department to justify patronage replacement by Mrs. Clinton’s cronies.

Now we know, from a memo long concealed from investigators, that there would be “hell to pay” if the furious First Lady’s desires were scorned. The career of the lawyer who transmitted Hillary’s lie to authorities is now in jeopardy. Again, she lied with good reason: to avoid being identified as a vindictive political power player who used the F.B.I. to ruin the lives of people standing in the way of juicy patronage.

3. In the aftermath of the apparent suicide of her former partner and closest confidant, White House Deputy Counsel Vincent Foster, she ordered the overturn of an agreement to allow the Justice Department to examine the files in the dead man’s office. Her closest friends and aides, under oath, have been blatantly disremembering this likely obstruction of justice, and may have to pay for supporting Hillary’s lie with jail terms.

Again, the lying was not irrational. Investigators believe that damning records from the Rose Law Firm, wrongfully kept in Vincent Foster’s White House office, were spirited out in the dead of night and hidden from the law for two years — in Hillary’s closet, in Web Hubbell’s basement before his felony conviction, in the President’s secretary’s personal files — before some were forced out last week.

Why the White House concealment? For good reason: The records show Hillary Clinton was lying when she denied actively representing a criminal enterprise known as the Madison S.& L., and indicate she may have conspired with Web Hubbell’s father-in-law to make a sham land deal that cost taxpayers $3 million.

Why the belated release of some of the incriminating evidence? Not because it mysteriously turned up in offices previously searched. Certainly not because Hillary Clinton and her new hang-tough White House counsel want to respond fully to lawful subpoenas.

One reason for the Friday-night dribble of evidence from the White House is the discovery by the F.B.I. of copies of some of those records elsewhere. When Clinton witnesses are asked about specific items in “lost” records — which investigators have — the White House “finds” its copy and releases it. By concealing the Madison billing records two days beyond the statute of limitations, Hillary evaded a civil suit by bamboozled bank regulators.

Another reason for recent revelations is the imminent turning of former aides and partners of Hillary against her; they were willing to cover her lying when it advanced their careers, but are inclined to listen to their own lawyers when faced with perjury indictments.

Therefore, ask not “Why didn’t she just come clean at the beginning?” She had good reasons to lie; she is in the longtime habit of lying; and she has never been called to account for lying herself or in suborning lying in her aides and friends.

No wonder the President is fearful of holding a prime-time press conference. Having been separately deposed by the independent counsel at least twice, the President and First Lady would be well advised to retain separate defense counsel.

The late, great William Safire was a prophet.

Even though the Clintons have always appeared to be above the law, and skip past every scandal  like a fried egg in those Teflon Skillet commercials, with this November’s Presidential Election, an example must be set, so that the America’s secrets and the safety of our Military and Intelligence Operatives acting covertly in foreign lands, will be protected for the continued sovereignty of our nation.

A President of the United States must be trustworthy, not only for the reassurance of its citizens that they will do the right thing when a crisis occurs, but also for the assurance of our overseas allies, that we will have their backs in case of a crisis in their nation.

Americans have watched all of Clinton’s scandals…and we’re angry.

Anger has played an important part in the forging of this great country, which will be lucky to survive Obama’s final year in office.

It was anger that formed our country….an anger over being held captive to “Taxation Without Representation”…an anger which, as a prime example of history repeating itself, Americans are experiencing, even as I type this blog.

It is this anger, aimed at Professional Politicians and the Washingtonian Status has propelled Donald J. Trump and those who prefer that things remain the same, know it.

The indisputable fact of the matter is that, in “Open” Primaries, Trump did even better than he did in those primaries in which only Republicans could vote.

Americans are fed up with the Washingtonian Status Quo.

We are tired of professional politicians’ empty promises and their failure to properly address the issues facing America, in any way, except a self-serving one.

Hillary Clinton is a Professional Politician.

From the time that she spent behind the scenes of her husband’s political career in Arkansas to the days she occupied the White House as “Co-President” to her days as Senator from the State of New York to this very moment, Hillary Clinton has engaged in political activities involving corruption and downright criminality that would make Machiavelli blush.

America has endured enough duplicity and political chicanery in the last 7 years to last us for centuries. The deleterious effect of the Presidency of Barack Hussein Obama has left a stain of incompetent leadership and out-of-control political correctness which will take years to wash away.

America and the rest of the Free World cannot afford the devastating effects of a Hillary Clinton Presidency.

Until He Comes,

It Takes a Radical: The Very Political Life of Hillary Rodham Clinton-2016 Presidential Election Edition (An Unauthorized KJ Biographical Analysis)

October 30, 2016

corruptopus-600-liPROLOGUE:  I researched the follow­ing infor­ma­tion and record­ed it as a 4 part series about the 2016 presump­tive Democ­ra­t­ic Presi­den­tial Candi­date, Hillary Rodham Clinton. I am offer­ing it today, because, as her dream of becoming the President is hopefully coming to an end, I feel that it is imper­a­tive to share this infor­ma­tion in a form where it will be easy for you , gentle readers, to share with your friends and family. 

Buoyed by the complicity of the Main Stream Media and bought and paid for Democratic Operatives, over the years she has constantly presented herself as a “Moder­ate” Democ­rat, and “Woman of the People”, as a  linch­pin of her Campaign Strat­e­gy. However, the story of her life reveals someone quite differ­ent.


Hillary Clinton 1On October 26, 1947, Hillary Diane Rodham entered this world in Chicago, Illinois.Hillary Rodham, the oldest daugh­ter of Hugh Rodham, a prosper­ous fabric store owner, and Dorothy Emma Howell Rodham, was raised in Park Ridge, Illinois, a quaint little suburb locat­ed 15 miles north­west of downtown Chicago. Hillary has two younger broth­ers, Hugh Jr. (born 1950) and Antho­ny (born 1954).In her youth, the future Democ­rat was active in young Repub­li­can groups, even campaign­ing for the 1964 Repub­li­can Presi­den­tial Nominee, Barry Goldwater.According to Hil, she was inspired to work in some form of public service after hearing the Reverend Martin Luther King speak in Chicago. She became a Democ­rat in 1968.The young ingénue attend­ed Welles­ley College, where she was active in student politics, being elect­ed Senior Class Presi­dent before she gradu­at­ed in 1969.After that, Hilary enrolled in Yale Law School, where she met Bill “Bubba” Clinton.  Afer gradu­at­ing with honors in 1973, she then enrolled at Yale Child Study Center, where she took cours­es on children and medicine and complet­ed one post-graduate year of study, which explains her whole “It takes a village” philosophy.While a college student, Hillary worked sever­al summer jobs. In 1971, she arrived in Washing­ton, D.C. to work on U.S. Senator Walter Mondale’s sub-committee on migrant workers. The next summer found her out west, working for the campaign of Democ­ra­t­ic presi­den­tial nominee George McGovern.Then, in the spring of 1974, Rodham became a member of the presi­den­tial impeach­ment inquiry staff, advis­ing the Judicia­ry Commit­tee of the House of Repre­sen­ta­tives during the Water­gate Scandal.Her boss back then, Jerry Zeifman, now-retired gener­al counsel and chief of staff of the House Judicia­ry Commit­tee, tells a very reveal­ing story concern­ing her work there.According to Zeifman, a lifelong Democ­rat, Hillary got a job working on the inves­ti­ga­tion at the behest of her former Yale Law Profes­sor, Burke Marshall, also Sen. Ted Kennedy’s chief counsel in the Chappaquid­dick affair.When the Water­gate Inves­ti­ga­tion was over, Zeifman fired Hillary from the commit­tee staff and refused to give her a letter of recom­men­da­tion. That made the Future First Lady and Secre­tary of State one of only three people who earned that badge of dishon­or in Zeifman’s 17-year career.Why?Accord­ing to Zeifman,

Because she was a liar. 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.

Zeifman claims that she was one of sever­al individ­u­als includ­ing Marshall, Special Counsel John Doar, and Senior Associate Special Counsel (and future Clinton White House Counsel) Bernard Nussbaum, who plotted to deny Richard Nixon the right to counsel during the inves­ti­ga­tion.

Zeifman believes  that they were death­ly afraid of putting the break-in’s master­mind E. Howard Hunt on the stand to be cross-examined by Counsel to the Presi­dent.  The reason being, Hunt had the goods regard­ing some dirty dealings  in the Kennedy Admin­is­tra­tion that would have made Water­gate look like a kid busting open his Piggy Bank…dealings which purport­ed­ly includ­ed Kennedy’s complic­i­ty in the attempt­ed assas­si­na­tion of Fidel Castro.

Hillary and her associates were acting direct­ly again­st the decision of top Democ­rats, up to and includ­ing then-House Major­i­ty Leader Tip O’Neill, who all believed that Nixon clear­ly had the right to counsel.

The reason that Hillary and the rest came up with the scheme is because they believed that they could gain enough votes on the Judicia­ry Commit­tee to change House rules and deny counsel to Nixon.

In order to pull off this scheme, Zeifman says Hillary wrote a fraud­u­lent legal brief, and confis­cat­ed public documents to hide her decep­tion.

Hillary wanted to present in her brief that there was no right to repre­sen­ta­tion by counsel during an impeach­ment proceed­ing. Zeifman told Hillary about the case of Supre­me Court Justice William O. Douglas, who faced an impeach­ment attempt in 1970….

As soon as the impeach­ment resolu­tions were intro­duced by (then-House Minor­i­ty Leader Gerald) Ford, and they were referred to the House Judicia­ry Commit­tee, the first thing Douglas did was hire himself a lawyer.

Douglas was allowed to keep counsel by the Judicial Commit­tee in place at the time, which clear­ly estab­lished a prece­dent. Zeifman told Hillary that all the documents estab­lish­ing this fact were in the Judicia­ry Committee’s public files.

That was  a mistake, per Zeifman…

Hillary then removed all the Douglas files to the offices where she was locat­ed, which at that time was secured and inacces­si­ble to the public.

Hillary then wrote a legal brief which argued that there was no prece­dent for the right to repre­sen­ta­tion by counsel during an impeach­ment proceeding…ignoring the Douglas case complete­ly.

The brief was so laugh­ing­ly fraud­u­lent, Zeifman believes Hillary would have been disbarred if she had ever actual­ly submit­ted it to a judge.

Zeifman says that if Hillary and her associates had succeed­ed, members of the House Judicia­ry Commit­tee would have also been denied the right to cross-examine witness­es, and denied the oppor­tu­ni­ty to even be a part of the draft­ing of articles of impeach­ment again­st Nixon.

After Presi­dent Richard M. Nixon resigned in August, render­ing the matter of her decep­tion moot, Hillary became a facul­ty member of the Univer­si­ty of Arkansas Law School in Fayet­teville, where her Yale Law School class­mate and boyfriend Bill Clinton was also teach­ing.

Hillary Rodham married Bill Clinton on October 11, 1975, at their home in Fayet­teville. Before he proposed, Bubba had secret­ly purchased a small house that Hillary had previ­ous­ly said that she liked. When she accept­ed his marriage propos­al, he revealed that they owned the house.

Hillary Clinton #2After she married Bill in 1975, Hillary Rodham Clinton worked on Jimmy Carter’s success­ful campaign for presi­den­ti in1976, while Bill got elect­ed Attor­ney Gener­al of the state of Arkansas.

Hillary joined the Rose Law Firm in Little Rock after Bill became Attor­ney Gener­al, and made partner only after he was elect­ed gover­nor, accord­ing to Former Clinton Confi­dan­te Dick Morris.

That event occurred in 1978.

Presi­dent Carter appoint­ed Mrs. Clinton to the board of the Legal Services Corpo­ra­tion (LSC) in 1978. This was a feder­al­ly funded nonprof­it organi­za­tion which was designed as a way to expand the social welfare state and grow social welfare spend­ing. Accord­ing to Dick Morris, the appoint­ment was in exchange for Bill’s support for Carter in his 1980 prima­ry again­st Ted Kennedy. Hillary went on to become board chair­man in a coup in which she won a major­i­ty away from Carter’s choice to be chair­man.

Hillary more than tripled LSC’s annual budget, from $90 million to $321 million, in taxpay­er funds (OUR money). LSC used these funds in sever­al differ­ent ways, most notable among them, the print­ing of polit­i­cal train­ing manuals showing “how commu­ni­ty organi­za­tions and public inter­est groups can win polit­i­cal power and resources,” and the financ­ing of train­ing programs that taught polit­i­cal activists how to harass their opposi­tion.

While Hillary was running the LSC board, the Corpo­ra­tion also

1. Worked to defeat a Califor­nia refer­en­dum that would have cut state income taxes in half

2. Called for the U.S. govern­ment to give two-thirds of the state of Maine to Ameri­can Indians

3.  Paid Marxist orators and folk singers to wage a campaign again­st the Louisiana Wildlife Commis­sion

4.  Joined a Michi­gan initia­tive to recog­nize “Black English” as an official language;

5.  Sought to force the New York City Transit Author­i­ty to hire former heroin addicts so as to avoid “discriminat[ing]” again­st “minori­ties” who were “handi­capped.”

When it became clear that Ronald Reagan was on the verge of beating Democ­rat Presi­dent Jimmy Carter in 1980, LSC redirect­ed massive amounts of its public funding into an anti-Reagan letter-writing campaign by indigent clients. After Reagan was elect­ed in Novem­ber 1980, LSC immedi­ate­ly laundered its assets — some $260 million — into state-level agencies and private groups so as to keep the funds away from the board that Reagan would eventu­al­ly appoint. Hillary Clinton left LSC in 1981.

While Bubba was  Gover­nor of Arkansas from 1978 to 1980, and again from 1982 to 1992, Hillary was very active “behind the scenes”.

During these years, she contin­ued her legal practice as a partner in the Rose Law Firm. In 1978 she also became a board member of the Children’s Defense Fund (CDF), and from 1986 to 1992 she served as chair of the CDF Board.

From 1982 to 1988, Hillary also chaired the New World Founda­tion (NWF), which had helped to launch CDF in 1973. While running the NWF, the Founda­tion made grants to such organi­za­tions as the Nation­al Lawyers Guild, the Insti­tute for Policy Studies, the Chris­tic Insti­tute, Grass­roots Inter­na­tion­al, the Commit­tees in Solidar­i­ty with the People of El Salvador (which sought to foment a Commu­nist revolu­tion in Central Ameri­ca), and groups with ties to the most extreme elements of the African Nation­al Congress.

Accord­ing to Dick Morris, when Clinton was consid­er­ing not running for anoth­er term as Gover­nor of Arkansas in 1990, Hillary said she would run if he didn’t. She and Bill even had Morris take two surveys to assess her chances of winning. The conclu­sion was that she couldn’t win because people would just see her as a seat warmer for when Bill came back licking his wounds after losing for presi­dent. So she didn’t run. Bill did and won. But there is no question she had her eye on public office, as opposed to service, long ago.

So, while Bill was the Front Man, Hil worked “the Back of the House”, in prepa­ra­tion for her “moment in the spotlight”.

During the Clintons’ time in Arkansas, they also both became involved in a little matter which later became known as “The White­wa­ter Scandal”.

In 1978, while Bubba was Attor­ney Gener­al of Arkansas, Hil and he partnered with James and Susan McDougal in a purchase 220 acres of land that would evolve into the White­wa­ter Devel­op­ment Corpo­ra­tion. The real estate venture tanked, costing the Clintons a report­ed $40,000 in losses. After that James McDougal went into the banking indus­try, forming Madis­on Guaran­ty Savings and Loan.

In 1986, feder­al regula­tors inves­ti­gat­ed anoth­er real estate invest­ment backed by James McDougal. The inves­ti­ga­tion led to McDougal’s resig­na­tion from Madis­on Guaran­ty and the eventu­al collapse of the bank. Questions surround­ing the Clintons’ involve­ment in the White­wa­ter deal grew during Presi­dent Clinton’s first term in office and an inves­ti­ga­tion into the legal­i­ty of the White­wa­ter trans­ac­tions was launched.

All subse­quent inquiries into the White­wa­ter land deal yield­ed insuf­fi­cient evidence to charge the Clintons with crimi­nal conduct. Howev­er, sever­al of their associates were convict­ed as a result the inves­ti­ga­tions.

In July 1992, William Jeffer­son Clinton was nominat­ed by the Democ­ra­t­ic Party as their Candi­date for the Presi­den­cy of the United States.

In August of that year, Daniel Watten­berg wrote the follow­ing prophet­ic state­ment in the opening of an article for “The Ameri­can Specta­tor” titled, “The Lady Macbeth of Little Rock”…

Hillary Clinton has been likened to Eva Peron, but it’s a bad analo­gy. Evita was worshipped by the “shirt­less ones,” the working class, while Hillary’s charms elude most outside of an élite cohort of left-liberal, baby–boom feminists-the type who thought Anita Hill should be canon­ized and Thelma and Louise was the best movie since Easy Rider. Hillary reckons herself the next Eleanor Roosevelt. But, stand­ing well to the left of her husband and enjoy­ing an indepen­dent power base within his coali­tion, Hillary is best thought of as the Winnie Mande­la of Ameri­can politics. She has likened the Ameri­can family to slavery, thinks kids should be able to sue their parents to resolve family arguments, and during her tenure as a founda­tion officer gave away millions (much of it in no-strings-attached grants) to the left-including sizable sums to hard-left organiz­ers. She is going to cause her husband no end of polit­i­cal embar­rass­ment between now and November-and who knows how long after­ward.

Mr. Watten­berg nailed that one, huh?

Hillary Clinton #3Bill Clinton was inaugu­rat­ed as the 42nd Presi­dent of the United States of Ameri­ca on January 20, 1993.  Stand­ing right behind him…and pushing hard was Hillary Rodham Clinton, by now widely known as the more-driven, and polit­i­cal­ly ambitious one of the couple.

Billed as “the New Camelot” by the Main Stream Media, the Clintons strode arm-in-arm into their castle to preside over their new kingdom, where Progres­sivism in the name of “Moder­a­tion” would be the Law of the Land.

Howev­er, just as the reign of Arthur and Guinev­ere ended badly, into the Clintons’ story­book “Co-Presidency”, “a little rain” fell in the form of scandals and quite a few “Bimbo Eruptions” which brought about an inglo­ri­ous end to all of their “peace and harmony”.

Rose Law Firm Billing – As I wrote previ­ous­ly, in 1978, while Bubba was Attor­ney Gener­al of Arkansas, Hil and he partnered with James and Susan McDougal in a purchase 220 acres of land that would evolve into the White­wa­ter Devel­op­ment Corpo­ra­tion. The real estate venture tanked, costing the Clintons a report­ed $40,000 in losses. After that James McDougal went into the banking indus­try, forming Madis­on Guaran­ty Savings and Loan.

In 1986, feder­al regula­tors inves­ti­gat­ed anoth­er real estate invest­ment backed by James McDougal. The inves­ti­ga­tion led to McDougal’s resig­na­tion from Madis­on Guaran­ty and the eventu­al collapse of the bank. Questions surround­ing the Clintons’ involve­ment in the White­wa­ter deal grew during Presi­dent Clinton’s first term in office and an inves­ti­ga­tion into the legal­i­ty of the White­wa­ter trans­ac­tions was launched.

After nearly two years of search­es and subpoe­nas, the White House announced on the evening of January 6, 1996, that it had unexpect­ed­lydiscov­ered copies of missing documents from the Rose Law Firm that describe Hillary Rodham Clinton’s work for a failing savings and loan associ­a­tion in the 1980′s.

Feder­al and Congres­sion­al inves­ti­ga­tors had issued subpoe­nas for the documents since 1994, and the White House claimed not have them. The origi­nals disap­peared from the Rose Law Firm, short­ly before Bill Clinton was inaugu­rat­ed as Presi­dent.

The newly discov­ered documents were copies of billing records from the Rose firm. The origi­nals were found under the Clintons’ bed in the White House, short­ly after the statute of limita­tions ran out.

All subse­quent inquiries into the White­wa­ter land deal yield­ed insuf­fi­cient evidence to charge the Clintons with crimi­nal conduct. Howev­er, sever­al of their associates were convict­ed as a result of the inves­ti­ga­tions.

Death of Vince Foster – On July 20, 1993, Vincent W. Foster Jr., the deputy counsel to the presi­dent of the United States, and former partner with Hillary, in The Rose Law Firm, was found lying neatly face-up on a steep embank­ment in Marcy Park with his feet point­ing down, dressed in expen­sive trousers and a white dress shirt, less than eight miles from the White House, with a single gun-shot wound to the head. Dead. Some of the blood on Foster’s face was still wet, but start­ing to dry. A trail of blood flowed upwards from his nose to above his ear. The man who found his body said there was no gun, but after he left to notify police, a gun appeared in Foster’s hand. Presi­dent William Jeffer­son Clinton’s Arkansas child­hood friend, First Lady Hillary Clinton’s Rose Law Firm partner, and White House confidante’s death was to become the subject of contro­ver­sy.

Due to Foster’s involve­ment in White­wa­ter, both at Rose and in the White House, the Senate White­wa­ter Commit­tee investigation’s conclu­sion revealed that there was “a concert­ed effort by senior White House officials to block career law enforce­ment inves­ti­ga­tors from conduct­ing a thorough inves­ti­ga­tion” into Foster’s death, and recom­mend­ed “that steps be taken to insure that such misuse of the White House counsel’s office does not recur in this, or any future, admin­is­tra­tion.”

So, was Vince Foster murdered? And, why?

In 1999, a book titled, “Bill and Hillary: The Marriage”, caused a lot of conster­na­tion among the Clintons and their support­ers.

The author, Christo­pher Ander­sen, claimed that in 1977 she began an intense­ly passion­ate affair with Vince Foster.

The affair suppos­ed­ly took place when the two were lawyers at The Rose Law Firm in Little Rock, Arkansas, while Bubba was gover­nor.

Rumors of an affair first start­ed buzzing around after Foster was found in Marcy Park. The book did not say when the relation­ship ended.

To this day, the circum­stances surround­ing the death of Vince Foster, remain a topic for conjec­ture.

 Travel­gate – In early summer of 1993, 6 employ­ees of the White House Travel Office were fired, after Hil and Bubba deter­mined that the Travel Office workers, who served at the pleasure of the presi­dent, could be fired and that the Travel Office business, and the commis­sions that came along with it, Coulée be taken over by a cousin of Presi­dent Clinton’s, Cather­ine Cornelius, who already owned her own travel agency.

Howev­er, they could not just go ahead and hand over a govern­men­tal office to a relative, without a backlash, so the Clintons made up a story, claim­ing that the Travel Office was rife with corrup­tion and the workers there had to be fired. An audit of the Travel Office ensued, and while the record-keeping at the office was found to have been pretty inade­quate, no corrup­tion or embez­zle­ment were found. That did not matter to the Clintons, so they went ahead and pressured the FBI to make arrests, and the local US Attor­ney was given instruc­tions to prose­cute the employ­ees for corrup­tion.

Of course, the Clintons denied being behind any sort of scheme in the matter. Howev­er, leaks by those involved, led to a firestorm of media criti­cism. Most of the Travel Office employ­ees were eventu­al­ly given other govern­ment jobs or retired and the trial for corrup­tion of the head of the Travel Office, Billy Dale, ended in a verdict of “NOT GUILTY”.

Clinton’s cousin was subse­quent­ly removed as new head of the Travel Office.

After­ward, Indepen­dent Counsel Robert Ray wrote a report that conclud­ed that, while she did not make any knowingly-false state­ments under oath, First Lady Hillary Clinton had made a number of inaccu­rate state­ments concern­ing the firings and her role in them.

Bimbo Eruptions – Back in the Bill Clinton era, White House advisor Betsey Wright coined the term “bimbo eruptions” to describe a long list of presi­den­tial gal pals.

BIll “Bubba” Clinton’s Bimbo List” includ­ed, but is not limit­ed to (I’m sure) Jennifer Flowers, Former Miss Ameri­ca Eliza­beth Ward, Paul Corbin Jones, and, of course, Monica Lewin­sky.

The Lewin­sky scandal was a sensa­tion that enveloped the presi­den­cy of Bill Clinton in 1998–99, leading to his impeach­ment by the U.S. House of Repre­sen­ta­tives and acquit­tal by the Senate.

Paula Corbin Jones, a former Arkansas state worker who claimed that Bill Clinton had accost­ed her sexual­ly in 1991 when he was gover­nor of Arkansas, had brought a sexual harass­ment lawsuit again­st the presi­dent. In order to show a pattern of behav­ior on Clinton’s part, Jones’s lawyers questioned sever­al women believed to have been engag­ing in sex  with him. On Jan. 17, 1998, Bubba took the stand, becom­ing the first sitting presi­dent to testi­fy as a civil defen­dant.

During this testi­mony, Clinton denied having had an affair with Monica S. Lewin­sky, an unpaid intern and later a paid staffer at the White House who worked in the White House from 1995–96. Lewin­sky had earlier, in a deposi­tion in the same case, also denied having such a relation­ship. Kenneth Starr, the indepen­dent counsel in the White­wa­ter case, had already received tape record­ings made by Linda R. Tripp (a former cowork­er of Lewinsky’s) of telephone conver­sa­tions in which Lewin­sky described her involve­ment with the presi­dent. Assert­ing that there was a “pattern of decep­tion,” Starr obtained from Attor­ney Gener­al Janet Reno permis­sion to inves­ti­gate the matter.

The presi­dent publicly denied having had a relation­ship with Lewin­sky and charges of cover­ing it up. His advis­er, Vernon Jordan, denied having counseled Lewin­sky to lie in the Jones case, or having arranged a job for her outside Washing­ton, to help cover up the affair. Hillary Clinton claimed that a “vast right-wing conspir­a­cy” was trying to destroy her husband, while Repub­li­cans and conser­v­a­tives portrayed him as immoral and a liar.

In March, Jordan and others testi­fied before Starr’s grand jury, and lawyers for Paula Jones released papers reveal­ing, among other things, that Clinton, in his January deposi­tion, had admit­ted to a sexual relation­ship in the 1980s with Arkansas enter­tain­er Gennifer Flowers, a charge he had long denied. In April, howev­er, Arkansas feder­al judge Susan Webber Wright dismissed the Jones suit, ruling that Jones’s story, if true, showed that she had been exposed to “boorish” behav­ior but not sexual harass­ment; Jones appealed.

In July, Starr grant­ed Lewin­sky immuni­ty from perjury charges, and Clinton agreed to testi­fy before the grand jury. He did so on Aug. 17, then went on televi­sion to admit the affair with Lewin­sky and ask for forgive­ness. In Septem­ber, Starr sent a 445-page report to the House of Repre­sen­ta­tives, recom­mend­ing four possi­ble grounds for impeach­ment: perjury, obstruc­tion of justice, witness tamper­ing, and abuse of author­i­ty.

On Dec. 19, Clinton became the second presi­dent (after Andrew Johnson) to be impeached, on two charges: perjury—in his Aug., 1998, testimony—and obstruc­tion of justice. The vote in the House was large­ly along party lines.

In Jan., 1999, the trial began in the Senate. On Feb. 12, after a trial in which testi­mony relat­ing to the charges was limit­ed, the Senate reject­ed both counts of impeach­ment. The perjury charge lost, 55–45, with 10 Repub­li­cans joining all 45 Democ­rats in voting again­st it; the obstruc­tion charge drew a 50–50 vote. Subse­quent­ly, on Apr. 12, Judge Wright, who had dismissed the Jones case, found the presi­dent in contempt for lying in his Jan., 1998, testi­mony, when he denied the Lewin­sky affair. In July, Judge Wright ordered the presi­dent to pay nearly $90,000 to Ms. Jones’s lawyers. On Jan. 19, 2001, the day before he left office, Presi­dent Clinton agreed to admit to giving false testi­mony in the Jones case and to accept a five-year suspen­sion of his law license and a $25,000 fine in return for an agree­ment by the indepen­dent counsel, Robert W. Ray (Starr’s succes­sor), to end the inves­ti­ga­tion and not prose­cute him.

In a later inter­view, Hillary claimed that Bill suffered child­hood abuse which may have caused him to philan­der­er and experi­ence “bimbo eruptions” later in life. She described her philan­der­ing husband as “a hard dog to keep on the porch”.

The Clinton Co-Presidency ended with the Inaugu­ra­tion of Presi­dent George W. Bush on January 20, 2001.

Howev­er, Hillary Clinton’s “time in the Spotlight” was just begin­ning.

Hillary Clinton #4On Novem­ber 6, 2000, Former First Lady Hillary Rodham Clinton was elect­ed Democ­ra­t­ic Senator for the State of New York, serving unremark­ably until leaving Office on January 21, 2009.

During her undis­tin­guished career in the U.S. Senate, Hillary Clinton voted on a variety of key pieces of legis­la­tion as follows:

  • in favor of a 2003 bill to ban oil explo­ration in the Arctic Nation­al Wildlife Refuge
  • in favor of an October 2002 joint resolu­tion to autho­rize the use of the U.S. Armed Forces again­st Iraq
  • again­st major tax-cut propos­als in 2001 and 2003
  • in favor of a 2007 propos­al to end the use of a point-based immigra­tion system, (i.e., a system that seeks to ensure that people with skills that society needs are given prefer­ence for entry into the United States)
  • again­st a 2007 amend­ment desig­nat­ing English as the language of “sole legal author­i­ty” for the business of the feder­al govern­ment, and declar­ing that no person has a right to require officials of the U.S. govern­ment to use a language other than English
  • again­st a 2008 bill urging an expan­sion of the zero-tolerance prose­cu­tion policy for illegal aliens; calling for the comple­tion of 700 miles of pedes­tri­an fencing along the U.S.-Mexico border; allow­ing for the deploy­ment of up to 6,000 Nation­al Guard members to the U.S. south­ern border; and encour­ag­ing the identi­fi­ca­tion and depor­ta­tion of illegal immigrants current­ly in the Ameri­can prison system
  • in favor of the Campaign Finance Reform Act of 2002 (McCain-Feingold Act), which put restric­tions on paid adver­tis­ing during the weeks just prior to polit­i­cal elections, and tight­ly regulat­ed the amount of money which polit­i­cal parties and candi­dates could accept from donors
  • again­st separate propos­als (in 2004 and 2005) to ban lawsuits again­st gun manufac­tur­ers, distrib­u­tors, dealers, and importers for damages result­ing from the misuse of their products by others
  • again­st a 2003 propos­al to ban the late-term proce­dure common­ly known as “partial-birth abortion”
  • again­st a 2004 propos­al to make it an added crimi­nal offense for someone to injure or kill a fetus while carry­ing out a crime again­st a pregnant woman
  • again­st a 2006 bill making it illegal to knowing­ly trans­port a pregnant minor across state lines in order to obtain an abortion, as a way to escape state laws requir­ing parental consent

One week after Barack Hussein Obama was elect­ed Presi­dent of the United States, on Novem­ber 4, 2008, he called Hillary and offered her the job of Secre­tary of State, despite the fact that she had no Foreign Policy experi­ence. It was a suspi­cious choice at best, consid­er­ing that fact that when they were running again­st each other in the Democ­ra­t­ic Primaries,Obama had specif­i­cal­ly criti­cized Clinton’s Foreign Policy creden­tials and the initial idea of him appoint­ing her had been so unexpect­ed that she had told one of her own aides, “Not in a million years.”

The fact that she had campaigned unreserved­ly for Obama after he defeat­ed her for the Democ­ra­t­ic Nomina­tion, led to specu­la­tion that the Secre­tary of State job was a “reward for her loyal­ty”.

Hillary accept­ed the position, and now, even as her campaign for the Leadership of the Free World is apparently going down in flames, even the Main Stream Media is hard-pressed to come up with anything she accom­plished as Obama’s First Secre­tary of State.

So, how did she do?

On January 26, 2013, after Hillary had stepped down as Secre­tary of State and was replaced by Senator John Kerry, the follow­ing conver­sa­tion took place between Fox News Anchor Chris Wallace and Fox News Senior Polit­i­cal Analyst Brit Hume…

WALLACE: Yeah, I want to pick up on that, Brit, because during the hearing, what struck me was the Repub­li­cans were tough on Hillary, on Benghazi and the Democ­rats weren’t. But, both sides kept on saying what a great secre­tary of state she had been and to praise her service. And here’s some of the points that have been brought up, some of her accom­plish­ments. She helped assem­ble the bombing campaign in Libya to topple Muammar Qaddafi. She helped assem­bly the coali­tion that imposed the tough­est sanctions ever on Iran. And, she estab­lished diplo­mat­ic ties with Burma.

Question, Brit, how do you rate Hillary Clinton’s perfor­mance, record as our top diplo­mat?

HUME: I think those examples you cited would add up to a case for her compe­tence. They do not add up to a case for great­ness, after all, the ground­work on Burma had been done by the previ­ous admin­is­tra­tion. And the admin­is­tra­tion proper­ly followed through on it. You look across the world, now at the major issues. Are Arabs and Israelis closer to peace? How about Iran and North Korea and their nuclear programs? Have they been halted or serious­ly set back? Has the reset with Russia, which she so famous­ly intro­duced with the photo-op in Moscow with the reset button, has they lead to a new and more coöper­a­tive relation­ship? Is there a Clinton doctrine that we can identi­fy that she has artic­u­lat­ed and formed as secre­tary of state? Are there major treaties that she has under­tak­en and negoti­at­ed through to a success­ful conclu­sion? I think the answer to all those questions is that she has not. And those are the kinds of things that might mark her as a great secre­tary of state.

She has certain­ly been indus­tri­ous. She has visit­ed 112 countries. Her conduct as secre­tary of state has been highly digni­fied. She does her homework. There have been no gaffes or blunders. So I think she has been a capable and hard-working secre­tary of state, but I think the case for her being a great secre­tary of state is exceed­ing­ly weak.

Brit was being gracious. Here are seven Foreign Policy Disas­ters, which happened under Hillary’s watch as the Archi­tect of “Smart Power!”, in no partic­u­lar order:

The decision to overthrow Presi­dent Gaddafi in Libya – The short-sighted, ill-conceived action not only under­mined an ally in the (now defunct) “global war on terror,” it also served to throw gasoline on the bonfire known as “Arab Spring.

The Afghanistan “surge”- A military campaign that fails to result in a desired polit­i­cal outcome is con only be consid­ered a failure. What exact­ly was Obama and Hillary’s desired outcome when they called for this?
It is a fait d’accompli that the Karzai Govern­ment will be able to survive long once the U.S. completes its withdrawal of its combat forces from the country in 2014. This is can only be consid­ered a failure, A failure which cost too many of our Bright­est and Best.

Grant­i­ng Afghanistan major non-NATO U.S. ally status – Why did Barry and Hill decide to grant Afghanistan the status of a major non-NATO ally? When we pull out, our enemied will pour in. And, with “friends” like these, you don’t need enemies.

Maintain­ing the status quo with Pakistan – Pakistan has a long histo­ry of sponsor­ing Sunni jihadists of various stripes. Follow­ing the 2001 attacks on the United States, they did an about-face, becom­ing a chief partner in the U.S. military campaign in Afghanistan as well as its “global war on terror.”
10 years later, follow­ing the success­ful May 2011 raid in Abbot­tabad, Pakistan that result­ed in the death of Al-Qaeda founder Osama bin Laden, Pakistan prompt­ly denounced the U.S. and closed its vital supply routes to NATO-bound shipments to Afghanistan.
Hil and Barry got “played”.

The East Asia “pivot” – Strict­ly an exercise in containment,attempts at contain­ing China will only fuel Chine­se fears of foreign encir­clement, that will encour­age Chine­se assertive­ness, that will further encour­age contain­ment.
This pivot is only a bluff on behalf of the feckless purvey­ors of “Smart Power” to begin with.

As shown by the contin­ued drawing of “Red Lines”, they will not stand up to our enemies.

Arab Spring – The Arab Spring was a series of protests and upris­ings in the Middle East that began with unrest in Tunisia in late 2010. The Arab Spring has brought down regimes in some Arab countries, sparked mass violence in others, while some govern­ments managed to delay the trouble with a mix of repres­sion, promise of reform and state largesse.
Through this all Hillary and Obama have back the Muslim Broth­er­hood, the Godfa­ther of Muslim Terror­ist Organi­za­tions, in depos­ing Moder­ate Muslim Leaders.
Doesn’t make a while lot of sense, does it?

Benghazi­Gate – On Septem­ber 11, 2012, Muslim Terror­ists stormed the US Embassy Compound in Benghazi, Libya, slaugh­tered 4 brave Ameri­cans, includ­ing US Ambas­sador Chris Stephens, whose lifeless, sexual­ly assault­ed body they drug through the streets, while taking cell phone pictures of his corpse.
I have written sever­al blogs about the Administration’s Cover-up of this atroc­i­ty, but the seminal moment, regard­ing Hillary Clinton came in January of 2013, during an exchange between her and Sen. Ron Johnson of Wiscon­sin at a Foreign Relations Commit­tee hearing.
Johnson asked her about the administration’s conflict­ing expla­na­tions for the Sept. 11 attack on the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi, Libya, which killed the ambas­sador and three other Ameri­cans. Hillary, as we say down here in Dixie, “got on her high keys” and said,

With all due respect, the fact is we had four dead Ameri­cans. Was it because of a protest or was it because of guys out for a walk one night decid­ed to go kill some Ameri­cans? What differ­ence at this point does it make? It is our job to figure out what happened and do every­thing we can to prevent it from ever happen­ing again, Senator.

And, now, as the 2016 Presidential Election approaches, more and more of the magnitude of Clinton’s corruption has been revealed through…

The Clinton Foundation Scandal, WikiLeaks, and E-mailgate – As more and more information concerning the unimaginable corruption of Hillary Clinton, Former President Bill Clinton and their Political Operatives, including John Podesta and Huma Abedin is presented to the American Public on a daily basis, it becomes more and more apparent that the Clintons  and their Political Machine have always considered themselves to be ABOVE THE LAW.

Unfortunately, for her, unlike New York’s Boss Tweed or Memphis’ Boss Crump, who both ruled their Political Empires in much the same way that Hillary has ruled her’s, Hillary inadvertently left an digital “paper trail”.

This trail has exposed the Pay-For-Play Money Laundering Schemes which arose from The Clinton Foundation, and which in turn were used to fund Hillary’s Political Ambitions, and which caused the Clintons to go from being “destitute” when they left the White House, to now being wealthy beyond imagination.

This Digital “paper Trail” has also revealed a cold, calculating Modern-day Female Machiavelli, who built her Political Empire unrestrained by those things which “shackle” us “commoners”.  Things such as ETHICS AND MORALITY.

It is the height of irony, that a creature such as Clinton Aide Humana Abedin’s estranged Husband, Former Congressman Anthony Weiner, a Serial “Sexter” seemingly void of any concept of ethics and morality himself, will wind up being the unwitting instrument of Hillary Clinton’s Political Demise.

Summary – Even though the Clintons have always appeared to be above the law, and skip past every scandal  like a fried egg in those Teflon Skillet commercials, an example must be set, so that the America’s secrets and the safety of our Military and Intelligence Operatives acting covertly in foreign lands, will be protected for the continued sovereignty of our nation.

A President of the United States must be trustworthy, not only for the reassurance of its citizens that they will do the right thing when a crisis occurs, but also for the assurance of our overseas allies, that we will have their backs in case of a crisis in their nation.

Time and time again, from Watergate to Travelgate to Benghazigate, and now to The Clinton Foundation Scandal, WikiLeaks, and E-mailgate, Hillary Clinton has proven to be a ruthless, untrustworthy, Machiavellian professional politician, who only cares about herself and her ascension to the Presidency of the United States of America.

Every successful person is ambitious. Donald J Trump is an ambitious man. However, judging from his track record and the charitible things that he has done for Americans behind the scenes,  for which he neither sought nor received any publicity for, and his public accomplishments, along with his stated love for this country and his wish for us to prosper economically and once again resume our place as Leader of the Free World, as an average American, I will be voting for him in November of 2016 to become our next President.

America has endured enough duplicity and political chicanery in the last 7 years to last us for centuries. The deleterious effect of the Presidency of Barack Hussein Obama has left a stain of incompetent leadership and out-of-control political correctness which will take years to wash away.

America and the rest of the Free World cannot afford the devastating effects of a Hillary Clinton Presidency.

Just like the Broadcast Networks have ended just about all of their soap operas which aired on their channels on a daily basis, Americans need to pull the plug on the failed leadership and the legacy which Barack Hussein Obama is leaving behind.

…including the unfathomable corruption which is the Political Legacy of Hillary Clinton.

Indeed, it is time to make America great again.

Until He Comes,

Comey Before Congress Today to Explain Double Standard in Investigation of Hillary and E-mailgate

September 28, 2016

untitled-99

“I take classification seriously. I relied on and had every reason to rely on the judgments of the professionals with whom I worked. And so, in retrospect, maybe some people are saying, ‘Well, … among those 300 people, they made the wrong call,’” Clinton said. “At the time, there was no reason, in my view, to doubt the professionalism and the determination by the people who work every single day on behalf of our country.” – Former Secretary of State and Current Democratic Party Presidential Candidate Hillary Clinton, Fox News Sunday

The following op ed was posted yesterday on the Wall Street Journal’s Website, wsj.com

FBI Director James Comey appears Wednesday before the House Judiciary Committee, where he’ll get another chance to explain his agency’s double standard regarding Hillary Clinton. His probe of the former Secretary of State’s private email server is looking more like a kid-glove exercise with each new revelation.

House Oversight Chairman Jason Chaffetz on Friday disclosed that the FBI granted immunity to Mrs. Clinton’s top aides as part of its probe into whether Mrs. Clinton mishandled classified information. According to Mr. Chaffetz, this “limited” immunity was extended to former chief of staff Cheryl Mills and senior adviser Heather Samuelson, in order to get them to surrender their laptops, which they’d used to sort through Mrs. Clinton’s work-versus-personal emails.

Why the courtesy? “If the FBI wanted any other Americans’ laptops, they would just go get them—they wouldn’t get an immunity deal,” Ohio Rep. Jim Jordan told Politico. He’s right. The FBI merely had to seek a subpoena or search warrant. By offering immunity, the FBI exempted the laptops and their emails as potential evidence in a criminal case.

Beth Wilkinson, who represents Ms. Mills and Ms. Samuelson, says the immunity deals were designed to protect her clients against any related “classification” disputes. This is an admission that both women knew their unsecure laptops had been holding sensitive information for more than a year. Meanwhile, Mr. Comey also allowed Ms. Mills and Ms. Samuelson to serve as lawyers for Mrs. Clinton at her FBI interview—despite having been interviewed as witnesses and offered immunity.

The FBI also offered immunity to John Bentel, who directed the State Department’s Office of Information Resources Management; to Bryan Pagliano, Mrs. Clinton’s IT guru; and to an employee of Platte River Networks (PRN), which housed the Clinton server. Usually, the FBI only “proffers” immunity deals in return for genuine information. In this case the FBI seemed not to make any such demands. The deals also did not include—as they often do—requirements that the recipients cooperate with other investigating bodies, such as Congress.

Meantime, the FBI waited until late Friday to dump another 189 pages of documents from its investigation, including notes from interviews with Ms. Mills and Ms. Samuelson, Mr. Pagliano, Clinton confidante Huma Abedin, and Platte River Network employees. They raise even more questions.

Was the FBI concerned that Ms. Mills in the fall of 2013 (after Congress began investigating the Benghazi attacks) called Mr. Pagliano to ask about software that could be used for “wiping computer data”? Or that a Platte River Networks employee, after getting instructions from Ms. Mills to begin deleting Clinton emails more than 60 days old, entitled the resulting work ticket the “Hillary coverup operation”? Or that a PRN employee was instructed by the company’s lawyer “not to answer any [FBI] questions related to conversations with” David Kendall, Mrs. Clinton’s personal lawyer?

The FBI documents also disclose that Mr. Pagliano admitted to having, at the beginning of Mrs. Clinton’s tenure, several conversations with unnamed State Department official(s) who expressed concern that her private server posed “a federal records retention issue,” and that it was likely transmitting classified information. When Mr. Pagliano relayed these concerns to Ms. Mills, she ignored them.

We’d also love to hear what the FBI made of the news that Mrs. Clinton maintained a Gmail account. The Democratic presidential nominee has never disclosed this detail. Speaking of revealing, President Obama has publicly said he found out about Mrs. Clinton’s server through “news reports.” Yet the FBI notes reveal that he emailed Mrs. Clinton on her private server under a pseudonym. Ms. Abedin told the FBI that the White House was notified when Mrs. Clinton changed her email address so the President’s secure server wouldn’t exclude her emails. Was Mr. Obama fibbing too?

These columns have long opposed the appointment of special prosecutors, but that depends on the ability of established legal officers to do their jobs without political favor. Mr. Comey’s handling of the Clinton case understandably makes Americans wonder if their government can be trusted to perform this duty. On the evidence of the FBI’s special treat for Mrs. Clinton and her aides, they are right to wonder.

Indeed.

What Americans are witnessing as more and more of the FBI’s lackadaisical investigation of Hillary Clinton’s Scandal, known as E-mailgate, is made public, is an unequal application of the rule of law as applies to Professional Politicians in general and, in this case, specifically, a former member of the Obama Administration.

Recently, the CBS Morning News presented a poll in which 60% of Americans believed that Clinton lied about her mishandling of emails containing top secret information which could have potentially put the lives of our military and covert operatives st risk.

Now, that was a CBS poll, which of course is weighted heavily in favor of Liberals, so you can imagine how folks like you and me out here in Flyover Country feel about the situation.

Our government was never meant to be a feudal system. America remains a Constitutional Republic.

American  Politicians were never meant to be Lords, who would remain in power in perpetuity. Our Founding Fathers envisioned Citizen Statesman, who after serving their country and their communities for a short period of time, would return to their homes, to their families, and to their trades.

What has happened during the investigation of this breach of our National Security is a prime example of why our Founders set up the System of Checks and Balances that they did when they were constructing our system of government.

Obama, the Department of Justice, and the Clintons circumvented that system with a series of maneuvers carried out between the White House, the Campaign Staff, and a private jet idling on a Tarmac at an airport.

Even though the Clintons have always appeared to be above the law, and skip past every scandal  like a fried egg in those Teflon Skillet commercials, with this November’s Presidential Election, an example must be set, so that the America’s secrets and the safety of our Military and Intelligence Operatives acting covertly in foreign lands, will be protected for the continued sovereignty of our nation.

A President of the United States must be trustworthy, not only for the reassurance of its citizens that they will do the right thing when a crisis occurs, but also for the assurance of our overseas allies, that we will have their backs in case of a crisis in their nation.

Time and time again, from Watergate to Travelgate to Benghazigate, and now to E-mailgate, Hillary Clinton has proven to be a ruthless, untrustworthy, Machiavellian professional politician, who only cares about herself and her ascension to the Presidency of the United States of America.

A I have written before, every successful person is ambitious. Donald J Trump is an ambitious man. However, judging from his track record and the charitable things that he has done for Americans behind the scenes,  for which he neither sought nor received any publicity for, and his public accomplishments, along with his stated love for this country and his wish for us to prosper economically and once again resume our place as Leader of the Free World, as an average American, I will be voting for him in November of 2016 to become our next President.

America has endured enough duplicity and political chicanery in the last 7 years to last us for centuries. The deleterious effect of the Presidency of Barack Hussein Obama has left a stain of incompetent leadership and out-of-control political correctness which will take years to wash away.

America and the rest of the Free World cannot afford the devastating effects of a Hillary Clinton Presidency.

Just like the Broadcast Networks have ended just about all of their soap operas which aired on their channels on a daily basis, Americans need to pull the plug on the failed leadership and the legacy which Barack Hussein Obama is leaving behind.

Come November, as Americans, we will have an opportunity to voice how we feel about this travesty of Justice called “E-mailgate”.

Our country’s future will lie in the contents of Ballot Boxes across our nation.

This November, remember that Hillary Clinton is NOT ABOVE THE LAW.

And, vote accordingly.

Clinton: “Why Aren’t I 50 Points Ahead?”…One American’s Answer

September 23, 2016

disposables-600-li

Last Wednesday, in a video address to the Las Vegas Conference of the Laborers’ International Union of North America, Democratic Presidential Candidate Hillary Clinton snapped and asked a question which she has, no doubt been asking herself in the mirror every morning for quite a while now:

Why aren’t I 50 points ahead [of Trump]? 

Because O Queen of Mean, as the great American Songwriter and Performer, Billy Joel,sings,

It’s a Matter of Trust.

In 2016, the name Hillary Rodham Clinton will become synonymous with the untrustworthy nature of professional politicians.

A President of the United States must be trustworthy, not only for the reassurance of its citizens that they will do the right thing when a crisis occurs, but also for the assurance of our overseas allies, that we will have their backs in case of a crisis in their nation.

Whether the revelation of “the gift” of massive quantities of Uranium to the Russians or the formation of an Iranian Connection, as a result of money given to the Clinton Foundation,  as was previously  reported in 2015, or this new revelation involving “dual-staffer” Cheryl Mills, this is not just a scandal involving money and unscrupulous political ladder-climbing through the peddling of “favors”, the actions of Hillary Clinton as Secretary of State crossed the line into the abhorrent abyss of a Conflict of Interest involving possible Treason.

Time and time again, from Watergate to Travelgate to Benghazigate, and now to Emailgate, Hillary Clinton has proven to be a ruthless, untrustworthy, Machiavellian professional politician, who only cares about herself and her ascension to the Presidency of the United States of America.

Even during the Mythical “Co-Presidency” of the Clintons, slovenly adored by their minions in the Democrat Party and the Main Stream Media there was, as the late, great Paul Harvey used to say, “a rest of the story”.

Bill Clinton was inaugurated as the 42nd President of the United States of America on January 20, 1993.  Standing right behind him…and pushing hard was Hillary Rodham Clinton, by now widely acknowledged to be the more-driven, and politically ambitious one of the couple.

Billed as “the New Camelot” by the Main Stream Media, the Clintons strode arm-in-arm into their castle to preside over their new kingdom, where Progressivism in the name of “Moderation” would be the Law of the Land.

However, just as the reign of Arthur and Guinevere ended badly, into the Clintons’ storybook “Co-Presidency”, “a little rain” fell in the form of scandals and quite a few “Bimbo Eruptions” which brought about an inglorious end to all of their “peace and harmony”.

Rose Law Firm Billing – As I wrote previously, in 1978, while Bubba was Attorney General of Arkansas, Hil and he partnered with James and Susan McDougal in a purchase 220 acres of land that would evolve into the Whitewater Development Corporation. The real estate venture tanked, costing the Clintons a reported $40,000 in losses. After that James McDougal went into the banking industry, forming Madison Guaranty Savings and Loan.

In 1986, federal regulators investigated another real estate investment backed by James McDougal. The investigation led to McDougal’s resignation from Madison Guaranty and the eventual collapse of the bank. Questions surrounding the Clintons’ involvement in the Whitewater deal grew during President Clinton’s first term in office and an investigation into the legality of the Whitewater transactions was launched.

After nearly two years of searches and subpoenas, the White House announced on the evening of January 6, 1996, that it had unexpectedly discovered copies of missing documents from the Rose Law Firm that describe Hillary Rodham Clinton’s work for a failing savings and loan association in the 1980’s.

Federal and Congressional investigators had issued subpoenas for the documents since 1994, and the White House claimed not have them. The originals disappeared from the Rose Law Firm, shortly before Bill Clinton was inaugurated as President.

The newly discovered documents were copies of billing records from the Rose firm. The originals were found under the Clintons’ bed in the White House, shortly after the statute of limitations ran out.

All subsequent inquiries into the Whitewater land deal yielded insufficient evidence to charge the Clintons with criminal conduct. However, several of their associates were convicted as a result of the investigations.

Death of Vince Foster – On July 20, 1993, Vincent W. Foster Jr., the deputy counsel to the president of the United States, and former partner with Hillary, in The Rose Law Firm, was found lying neatly face-up on a steep embankment in Marcy Park with his feet pointing down, dressed in expensive trousers and a white dress shirt, less than eight miles from the White House, with a single gun-shot wound to the head. Dead. Some of the blood on Foster’s face was still wet, but starting to dry. A trail of blood flowed upwards from his nose to above his ear. The man who found his body said there was no gun, but after he left to notify police, a gun appeared in Foster’s hand. President William Jefferson Clinton’s Arkansas childhood friend, First Lady Hillary Clinton’s Rose Law Firm partner, and White House confidante’s death was to become the subject of controversy.

Due to Foster’s involvement in Whitewater, both at Rose and in the White House, the Senate Whitewater Committee investigation’s conclusion revealed that there was “a concerted effort by senior White House officials to block career law enforcement investigators from conducting a thorough investigation” into Foster’s death, and recommended “that steps be taken to insure that such misuse of the White House counsel’s office does not recur in this, or any future, administration.”

So, was Vince Foster murdered? And, why?

In 1999, a book titled, “Bill and Hillary: The Marriage”, caused a lot of consternation among the Clintons and their supporters.

The author, Christopher Andersen, claimed that in 1977 she began an intensely passionate affair with Vince Foster.

The affair supposedly took place when the two were lawyers at The Rose Law Firm in Little Rock, Arkansas, while Bubba was governor.

Rumors of an affair first started buzzing around after Foster was found in Marcy Park. The book did not say when the relationship ended.

To this day, the circumstances surrounding the death of Vince Foster, remain a topic for conjecture.

Travelgate – In early summer of 1993, 6 employees of the White House Travel Office were fired, after Hil and Bubba determined that the Travel Office workers, who served at the pleasure of the president, could be fired and that the Travel Office business, and the commissions that came along with it, Coulee be taken over by a cousin of President Clinton’s, Catherine Cornelius, who already owned her own travel agency.

However, they could not just go ahead and hand over a governmental office to a relative, without a backlash, so the Clintons made up a story, claiming that the Travel Office was rife with corruption and the workers there had to be fired. An audit of the Travel Office ensued, and while the record-keeping at the office was found to have been pretty inadequate, no corruption or embezzlement were found. That did not matter to the Clintons, so they went ahead and pressured the FBI to make arrests, and the local US Attorney was given instructions to prosecute the employees for corruption.

Of course, the Clintons denied being behind any sort of scheme in the matter. However, leaks by those involved, led to a firestorm of media criticism. Most of the Travel Office employees were eventually given other government jobs or retired and the trial for corruption of the head of the Travel Office, Billy Dale, ended in a verdict of “NOT GUILTY”.

Clinton’s cousin was subsequently removed as new head of the Travel Office.

Afterward, Independent Counsel Robert Ray wrote a report that concluded that, while she did not make any knowingly-false statements under oath, First Lady Hillary Clinton had made a number of inaccurate statements concerning the firings and her role in them.

Bimbo Eruptions – Back in the Bill Clinton era, White House advisor Betsey Wright coined the term “bimbo eruptions” to describe a long list of presidential gal pals.

BIll “Bubba” Clinton’s Bimbo List” included, but is not limited to (I’m sure) Jennifer Flowers, Former Miss America Elizabeth Ward, Paul Corbin Jones, and, of course, Monica Lewinsky.

The Lewinsky scandal was a sensation that enveloped the presidency of Bill Clinton in 1998–99, leading to his impeachment by the U.S. House of Representatives and acquittal by the Senate.

Paula Corbin Jones, a former Arkansas state worker who claimed that Bill Clinton had accosted her sexually in 1991 when he was governor of Arkansas, had brought a sexual harassment lawsuit against the president. In order to show a pattern of behavior on Clinton’s part, Jones’s lawyers questioned several women believed to have been engaging in sex  with him. On Jan. 17, 1998, Bubba took the stand, becoming the first sitting president to testify as a civil defendant.

During this testimony, Clinton denied having had an affair with Monica S. Lewinsky, an unpaid intern and later a paid staffer at the White House who worked in the White House from 1995–96. Lewinsky had earlier, in a deposition in the same case, also denied having such a relationship. Kenneth Starr, the independent counsel in the Whitewater case, had already received tape recordings made by Linda R. Tripp (a former coworker of Lewinsky’s) of telephone conversations in which Lewinsky described her involvement with the president. Asserting that there was a “pattern of deception,” Starr obtained from Attorney General Janet Reno permission to investigate the matter.

The president publicly denied having had a relationship with Lewinsky and charges of covering it up. His adviser, Vernon Jordan, denied having counseled Lewinsky to lie in the Jones case, or having arranged a job for her outside Washington, to help cover up the affair. Hillary Clinton claimed that a “vast right-wing conspiracy” was trying to destroy her husband, while Republicans and conservatives portrayed him as immoral and a liar.

In March, Jordan and others testified before Starr’s grand jury, and lawyers for Paula Jones released papers revealing, among other things, that Clinton, in his January deposition, had admitted to a sexual relationship in the 1980s with Arkansas entertainer Gennifer Flowers, a charge he had long denied. In April, however, Arkansas federal judge Susan Webber Wright dismissed the Jones suit, ruling that Jones’s story, if true, showed that she had been exposed to “boorish” behavior but not sexual harassment; Jones appealed.

In July, Starr granted Lewinsky immunity from perjury charges, and Clinton agreed to testify before the grand jury. He did so on Aug. 17, then went on television to admit the affair with Lewinsky and ask for forgiveness. In September, Starr sent a 445-page report to the House of Representatives, recommending four possible grounds for impeachment: perjury, obstruction of justice, witness tampering, and abuse of authority.

On Dec. 19, Clinton became the second president (after Andrew Johnson) to be impeached, on two charges: perjury—in his Aug., 1998, testimony—and obstruction of justice. The vote in the House was largely along party lines.

In Jan., 1999, the trial began in the Senate. On Feb. 12, after a trial in which testimony relating to the charges was limited, the Senate rejected both counts of impeachment. The perjury charge lost, 55–45, with 10 Republicans joining all 45 Democrats in voting against it; the obstruction charge drew a 50–50 vote. Subsequently, on Apr. 12, Judge Wright, who had dismissed the Jones case, found the president in contempt for lying in his Jan., 1998, testimony, when he denied the Lewinsky affair. In July, Judge Wright ordered the president to pay nearly $90,000 to Ms. Jones’s lawyers. On Jan. 19, 2001, the day before he left office, President Clinton agreed to admit to giving false testimony in the Jones case and to accept a five-year suspension of his law license and a $25,000 fine in return for an agreement by the independent counsel, Robert W. Ray (Starr’s successor), to end the investigation and not prosecute him.

In a later interview, Hillary claimed that Bill suffered childhood abuse which may have caused him to philanderer and experience “bimbo eruptions” later in life. She described her philandering husband as “a hard dog to keep on the porch”.

The Clinton Co-Presidency ended with the Inauguration of President George W. Bush on January 20, 2001.

Republican Presidential Candidate Donald J. J. Trump had a more direct response, as you can imagine,  when he was asked about Hillary’s question Thursday morning during a phone interview with “Fox and Friends,”

Because she’s terrible,” he said bluntly. “I mean, she’s had a terrible record. Everything she touches is bad. You look at what’s going on with Libya and you look at the surge and you look at all of her decisions and you look at the Iran deal, which is one of the dumbest deals I’ve ever seen, which she started, and she totally backs, by the way, I mean, in its completed form, she totally backs. You look at everything she touched, I mean, it’s just a mess. And she’s spending a lot of money and so far it’s not had much of an impact because I guess I’m winning in most of these states and we’ll see what happens in the end, but she is [terrible].” (courtesy of Politico.com )

The raw, unmitigated corruption involving Hillary Clinton and her Foundation, revealed over the past year, along with these new revelations, involving the DOJ refusing to investigate the FBI’s repeated requests to investigate the Foundation and Cheryl Mill’s involvement in  in  Hillary Clinton’s influence peddling as Secretary of State under President Barack Hussein Obama, via means of the Clinton Foundation, is breath-taking in its size and scope, as more and more unscrupulous details are being revealed.

Every successful person is ambitious. Donald J Trump is an ambitious man. However, judging from his track record and the charitible things that he has done for Americans behind the scenes,  for which he neither sought nor received any publicity for, and his public accomplishments, along with his stated love for this country and his wish for us to prosper economically and once again resume our place as Leader of the Free World, as an average American, I will be voting for him in November of 2016 to become our next President.

America has endured enough duplicity and political chicanery in the last 7 years to last us for centuries. The deleterious effect of the Presidency of Barack Hussein Obama has left a stain of incompetent leadership and out-of-control political correctness which will take years to wash away.

America and the rest of the Free World cannot afford the devastating effects of a Hillary Clinton Presidency.

Just like the Broadcast Networks have ended just about all of their soap operas which aired on their channels on a daily basis, Americans need to pull the plug on the failed leadership and the legacy which Barack Hussein Obama is leaving behind.

Personally, as I cast my vote in that voting booth this November as to whom to put behind the desk in the Oval Office…

I will remember the image of a lone terrorist, brandishing a machine gun, standing in front of the burning Benghazi Consulate.

I will also remember the image of Benghazi Barbarians dragging a murdered Ambassador Chris Stevens through the streets, taking pictures every few yards, with their cell phones.

My mind will envision the image of two brave Americans, up on a roof holding off 100 Muslim Terrorists, trying desperately to hold out for help which was denied to them, until finally the overwhelming numbers which comprise the horde of barbarians, murdered them as well.

I will imagine Ambassador Stevens’ elderly mother, making the trip from the West Coast to the East Coast to pick up the lifeless body of her abused and murdered son, whom she and her entire family were so proud of.

Finally, I will remember the show of hypocrisy involving members of this anti-American Administration, including then-Secretary of State Clinton, solemnly welcoming the bodies of those brave Americans home. And, it is on that day in November, standing in that voting booth while exercising my God-given Right as an American Citizen, that I will show Hillary Clinton, “what difference it makes”.

E-mailGate: Gen. Colin Powell Gets Used By “The Queen of Mean”

September 14, 2016

lie-stick-600-ci

…And while other senior officials had used personal email accounts for official business, including Colin Powell when he was secretary, the rules made clear by the time she became the nation’s top diplomat that using a private server for official business was neither allowed nor encouraged because of “significant security risks.” – “Hillary Clinton Is Criticized for Private Emails in State Dept. Review”, The New York Times, May 25, 2016

Theintercept.com reports that

Former Secretary of State Colin Powell attempted to discourage Hillary Clinton and her team from using him as a scapegoat for her private email server problems, according to newly leaked emails from Powell’s Gmail account.

“Sad thing,” Powell wrote to one confidant, “HRC could have killed this two years ago by merely telling everyone honestly what she had done and not tie me to it.”

“I told her staff three times not to try that gambit. I had to throw a mini tantrum at a Hampton’s party to get their attention. She keeps tripping into these ‘character’ minefields,” Powell lamented. He noted that he had tried to settle the matter by meeting with Clinton aide Cheryl Mills in August.  

Powell’s private messages were leaked by D.C. Leaks, an anonymously managed website that shares hacked emails from U.S. military and political figures. D.C. Leaks has a relationship with Guccifer 2.0, a hacker that many allege to have ties with Russian intelligence. D.C. Leaks provided access to Powell’s emails to a number of reporters on Tuesday.

The emails show Powell regularly corresponding with reporters and friends about the Clinton email server scandal, explaining that his situation was different. When Powell arrived at the State Department, the information technology system was badly dated, he argued. And unlike Clinton, Powell never set up a private server. Instead, he used his personal AOL account, on a server maintained by AOL, and used a government computer for classified communications.

“It is no secret that I used a unclassified personal email account in addition to my classified State computer,’” Powell wrote to the New York Times’ Amy Chozick. He implored the dozens of reporters and producers who emailed him to read his book, It Worked for Me: In Life and Leadership, in which he devoted an entire chapter to his efforts to revamp the State Department’s IT system.

The Clinton campaign’s effort to blur the lines between Clinton’s private email server and Powell’s AOL account left Powell deeply frustrated.

“They are going to dick up the legitimate and necessary use of emails with friggin record rules. I saw email more like a telephone than a cable machine,” Powell wrote last year to his business partner Jeffrey Leeds. “As long as the stuff is unclassified. I had a secure State.gov machine. Everything HRC touches she kind of screws up with hubris.”

Powell added in a tangential complaint: “I told you about the gig I lost at a University because she so overcharged them they came under heat and couldn’t any fees for awhile. I should send her a bill.”

Clinton sought Powell’s advice at a dinner on June 16, 2009 at former Secretary of State Madeleine Albright’s house, according to the emails. Powell gave Clinton “written guidance on why and how [he] had been doing it.” Also in attendance were former secretaries of state Condoleezza Rice, Lawrence Eagleburger, George Schultz, Warren Christopher, James Baker and Henry Kissinger.

“Dumb. She should have done a ‘Full Monty’ at the beginning,” Powell wrote. He added: “I warned her staff three times over the past two years not to try to connect it to me. I am not sure HRC even knew or understood what was going on in the basement.”

General Powell, there is a reason why Democratic Presidential Candidate Hillary Rodham Clinton did not do a “Full Monty” (Thank God. With that image in my head, I’m glad that I haven’t eaten breakfast, yet. But, I digress…):

On Jan. 8, 1996, in a still-relevant commentary titled “Blizzard of Lies,” New York Times columnist William Safire described Hillary Clinton as “a congenital liar.” Here are excerpts from that article.

Americans of all political persuasions are coming to the sad realization that our First Lady — a woman of undoubted talents who was a role model for many in her generation — is a congenital liar. Drip by drip, like Whitewater torture, the case is being made that she is compelled to mislead, and to ensnare her subordinates and friends in a web of deceit.

1. Remember the story she told about studying The Wall Street Journal to explain her 10,000 percent profit in 1979 commodity trading? We now know that was a lie told to turn aside accusations that as the Governor’s wife she profited corruptly, her account being run by a lawyer for state poultry interests through a disreputable broker.

She lied for good reason: To admit otherwise would be to confess taking, and paying taxes on, what some think amounted to a $100,000 bribe.

2. The abuse of Presidential power known as Travelgate elicited another series of lies. She induced a White House lawyer to assert flatly to investigators that Mrs. Clinton did not order the firing of White House travel aides, who were then harassed by the F.B.I. and Justice Department to justify patronage replacement by Mrs. Clinton’s cronies.

Now we know, from a memo long concealed from investigators, that there would be “hell to pay” if the furious First Lady’s desires were scorned. The career of the lawyer who transmitted Hillary’s lie to authorities is now in jeopardy. Again, she lied with good reason: to avoid being identified as a vindictive political power player who used the F.B.I. to ruin the lives of people standing in the way of juicy patronage.

3. In the aftermath of the apparent suicide of her former partner and closest confidant, White House Deputy Counsel Vincent Foster, she ordered the overturn of an agreement to allow the Justice Department to examine the files in the dead man’s office. Her closest friends and aides, under oath, have been blatantly disremembering this likely obstruction of justice, and may have to pay for supporting Hillary’s lie with jail terms.

Again, the lying was not irrational. Investigators believe that damning records from the Rose Law Firm, wrongfully kept in Vincent Foster’s White House office, were spirited out in the dead of night and hidden from the law for two years — in Hillary’s closet, in Web Hubbell’s basement before his felony conviction, in the President’s secretary’s personal files — before some were forced out last week.

…One reason for the Friday-night dribble of evidence from the White House is the discovery by the F.B.I. of copies of some of those records elsewhere. When Clinton witnesses are asked about specific items in “lost” records — which investigators have — the White House “finds” its copy and releases it. By concealing the Madison billing records two days beyond the statute of limitations, Hillary evaded a civil suit by bamboozled bank regulators.

Another reason for recent revelations is the imminent turning of former aides and partners of Hillary against her; they were willing to cover her lying when it advanced their careers, but are inclined to listen to their own lawyers when faced with perjury indictments.

So, now, here we are.

A Modern Madame Bovary, who has assumed power and vitality at the expense of others, from Arkansas to New York to Washington, DC, is the Democrat Nominee for the Presidency of the greatest country on the Face of the Earth, with the present (in more ways than one) President as, apparently, her willing accomplice, spending Taxpayer Money to flying in Air Force One to campaign for her, while an emaciated-appearing, crotchety, old Ex-President plays the role of Renfield to her incarnation of Dracula (“Yes, Mistress..heh heh…heh heh.”)

The late, great William Safire was a prophet.

Lying comes as naturally to The Former First Lady as breathing in and out.

Look at the controversy over her health.

To put it bluntly, it is obvious that she has been very sick for a long time now.

She even lies about that.

After fainting and falling out from “pneumonia” on Sunday, she will be back out on the campaign trail on Thursday.

Did Televangelist and Faith Healer Benny Hinn visit her at home, slap her on the head and heal her?

It’s a miracle!!!

Sorry. Again, I digress.

From the time she was fired from the Watergate Investigative Committee to this day, Hillary Rodham Clinton has been as crooked as a dog’s hind leg.

As General Colin Powell has found out the hard way.

Machiavellian in political ambition and armed with a vocabulary that would make the legendary Gong Show Judge, Jaye P. Morgan, blush (look her up, kids), “the Hildebeast” has cut a wide swatch in her path to Political Power.

It should be obvious to Americans by now, that she believes that morality and ethics are for “the little people” (i.e., you and me).

We already have a congenital liar in the White House.

We certainly do not need another one.

Oh…and Ambassador Christopher Stevens remains unavailable for comment.

And, Vince Foster lies buried…and not in paperwork.

Did Clinton’s Health Issues Cause E-mailgate and the Death of Our Iranian Operative?

August 8, 2016

hillary-clinton-sc-reuters-640x480Yesterday was not a good day for Hillary Clinton and her quest to become the President of the United States of America.

First, it appears that, as Secretary of State, her shirking of her duty to keep our Intelligence Secrets a secret, caused the execution of one of our top “assets”.

According to frontpagemag.com,

In 2009, Shahram Amiri, an Iranian nuclear scientist, traveled to Saudi Arabia, ostensibly to visit Muslim holy sites located in the Kingdom. Once there, he disappeared only to reappear later in some peculiar online rants, claiming to be residing in Virginia and alternatively, in Arizona, and expressing a desire to return to Iran.  

Amiri, who conducted nuclear research at the military affiliated Malek Ashtar University of Technology and worked for Iran’s Atomic Energy Organization, was said to possess a treasure trove of classified information on Iran’s illicit nuclear program. On his YouTube channel, he alleged that he was kidnapped by CIA and Saudi intelligence and was offered large sums of money in exchange for information on Iran’s nuclear program.

For reasons known only to Amiri, and which will undoubtedly be the subject of much speculation, Amiri arrived at the Iranian interest section of the Pakistani embassy in Washington and two weeks later, returned to Iran. Approximately one year had elapsed from the time of his defection until his return to Iran. 

Some have speculated that he feared for his family’s well-being and returned to spare them harassment by the Iranian authorities or perhaps he was genuinely homesick and thought the Iranians would buy his story of a CIA orchestrated kidnapping. Whatever the case, On August 3, 2016 Amiri was executed by the Mullahs in their favorite method of execution – hanging.

Amiri undoubtedly provided the administration with vital intelligence on Iran’s rogue nuclear program and that clearly did not sit well with Iranian officials. Upon his return, Amiri repeated the allegation of being kidnapped in Saudi Arabia in a joint CIA/Saudi operation. While the Iranians initially welcomed him, likely for public consumption, he was soon transformed into a treasonous enemy of the state and imprisoned and almost certainly tortured while undergoing grueling interrogation.

The Iranians could not be 100 percent certain of Amiri’s story. Iran is a nation built upon conspiracy theories and fantasy and in their view, the possibility of a CIA/Saudi operation to kidnap a nuclear scientist didn’t seem far-fetched and in fact, could have been plausible.  

But then came the Clinton email dump which may have spelt doom for Amiri. Two emails in particular, which were made public and which were undoubtedly read by the Iranians shed light on the voluntary nature of Amiri’s defection and attempts by the U.S. to address his concerns and facilitate his return to Iran.

The first email, sent to Clinton on July 5, 2010, and processed through her home-brewed bathroom server, was authored by Richard Morningstar, acting special envoy of the U.S. secretary for Eurasian energy. This email implied that Amiri needed a cover story to return to Iran and that the U.S. should make an effort to address his concerns. He writes, “Per the subject we discussed, we have a diplomatic, ‘psychological’ issue, not a legal issue,” and notes further that “Our friend has to be given a way out. We should recognize his concerns and frame it in terms of a misunderstanding with no malevolent intent and that we will make sure there is no recurrence. Our person won’t be able to do anything anyway. If he has to leave, so be it.”

The second email was sent to Clinton by her senior foreign policy adviser, Jake Sullivan. In the email, which was sent on July 12, 2010, Sullivan writes, “The gentleman you have talked to Bill Burns about has apparently gone to his country’s interests [sic] section because he is unhappy with how much time it has taken to facilitate his departure. This could lead to problematic news stories in the next 24 hours. Will keep you posted.” 

Sullivan was referencing Amiri’s earlier contact with Iran’s interest section in the Pakistani embassy. It also implies that the U.S. was attempting to facilitate his return to Iran. If this was in fact a kidnapping as alleged by Amiri, why then would the U.S. facilitate his return to an enemy country? And why would it need to address his concerns? Kidnappers do not normally carry out their victim’s wishes when their victims ask to be returned. That would defeat the entire purpose of kidnapping.

The Iranians are no fools. They probably suspected that Amiri voluntarily defected all along and the kidnapping element was nothing but a cover story. But the emails confirmed their suspicions and Amiri then paid for his decision with his life. If that was indeed the case, Hillary Clinton, through gross negligence and dereliction of duty, may have sealed Amiri’s gruesome fate.

Second, here’s a question for you, boys and girls:

Was Clinton’s nonchalant, oblivious nature as regards her handling of Top Secret E-mails as Secretary of State and its effect on the safety of our Undercover Operatives, be a consequence of her obvious health issues?

Breitbart.Com reported yesterday that

Hillary Clinton needed to be physically helped up a moderate flight of stairs by her team of staffers and handlers, according to campaign-trail photos that made the rounds on the Internet Sunday. 

Reuters and Getty photographs captured Hillary Clinton, 68, struggling to make it up the stairs, either as a result of her fragile body or perhaps because her well-documented brain injuries make it harder for her to transport herself through daily life activities. The photos gained wide circulation on the Internet Sunday. The photos were taken in February as Clinton was campaigning in South Carolina.

Breitbart News has extensively reported on Clinton’s various health problems, including what could be a lingering brain conditionthat appeared after she suffered a blood cot.

Donald Trump is hammering Clinton for “short-circuiting” when she had to answer questions about her private email scandal, which she clearly did not answer truthfully.

Breitbart’s Alex Swoyer reported in January:

Clinton’s disappearance from the debate stage last month left people speculating that the former First Lady took a long bathroom break, but now a law-enforcement source with inside connections is alleging that Clinton was missing from the stage due to health issues stemming from a previous brain injury.

These long-lasting symptoms stemming from a concussion and blood clot, according to a neurologist, suggest Clinton is suffering from post-concussion syndrome, which can severely impact her cognitive abilities.

All that said, however, Clinton’s campaign maintained to Breitbart News that she is in good health and can serve as President of the United States.
Clinton.

She also fell in 2009 when she was going to President Obama’s White House, necessitating surgery.previously fell on the stairs in 2011.

This morning the Internet is buzzing over these two possibly interconnected stories.

And, with good reason.

Hillary Clinton is not applying for a job behind the Fabric Counter at the neighborhood Walmart.

She is campaigning for President of the United States of America, the Leader of the Free World.

This morning, as I sat down to write today’s post, my local news, an affiliate of the Chicago Tribune’s Broadcasting Company, was hammering away at Donald J. Trump, with story after story as to how he is losing in the popularity polls to Hillary Clinton…all the while ignoring the fact that while his Campaign Appearances are drawing 10-15,000 at a time, hers barely number one hundred in attendance.

Which prompts the following questions…

Have those in authority in the Main Stream Media known about Clinton’s obviously-failing health all this time?

Was “Party Loyalty” not the only reason that they have been whitewashing her horrible record as Secretary of State, including E-mailgate?

Were they pressured by the Democrat Establishment to hide Clinton’s obvious health issues?

Whether Clinton’s mental and physical issues are the result of the effects of a lifetime of alcoholism, as has been rumored, or, the effects of some sort of congenital disease, does not mater at this point.

The Main Stream Media’s obvious advocacy of Hillary Clinton is an egregious violation of Journalistic Ethics which endangers the safety of our Sovereign Nation and our Electoral Process.

The cold, harsh reality is the fact that America simply cannot afford to elect a Marxist-Alinsky-ite, whose health is failing, as our next President.

Morally, ethically, mentally, and physically, Hillary Clinton is unfit to occupy the Office of the Presidency of the United States of America.

It All Depends on What Your Definition of “E-mail” is: Washington Post Admits Hillary Lied to America About E-mailgate.#NeverHillary

August 5, 2016

Clinton-Dummies-600-LIPAST: in the spring of 1974, Hillary Rodham became a member of the presidential impeachment inquiry staff, advising the Judiciary Committee of the House of Representatives during the Watergate Scandal.Her boss back then, Jerry Zeifman, now-retired general counsel and chief of staff of the House Judiciary Committee, tells a very revealing story concerning her work there.According to Zeifman, a lifelong Democrat, Hillary got a job working on the investigation at the behest of her former Yale Law Professor, Burke Marshall, also Sen. Ted Kennedy’s chief counsel in the Chappaquiddick affair.When the Watergate Investigation was over, Zeifman fired Hillary from the committee staff and refused to give her a letter of recommendation. That made the Future First Lady and Secretary of State one of only three people who earned that badge of dishonor in Zeifman’s 17-year career.Why?

According to Zeifman,

Because she was a liar. 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.

Zeifman claims that she was one of several individuals including Marshall, Special Counsel John Doar, and Senior Associate Special Counsel (and future Clinton White House Counsel) Bernard Nussbaum, who plotted to deny Richard Nixon the right to counsel during the investigation.

Zeifman believes  that they were deathly afraid of putting the break-in’s mastermind E. Howard Hunt on the stand to be cross-examined by Counsel to the President.  The reason being, Hunt had the goods regarding some dirty dealings  in the Kennedy Administration that would have made Watergate look like a kid busting open his Piggy Bank…dealings which purportedly included Kennedy’s complicity in the attempted assassination of Fidel Castro.

Hillary and her associates were acting directly against the decision of top Democrats, up to and including then-House Majority Leader Tip O’Neill, who all believed that Nixon clearly had the right to counsel.

The reason that Hillary and the rest came up with the scheme is because they believed that they could gain enough votes on the Judiciary Committee to change House rules and deny counsel to Nixon.

In order to pull off this scheme, Zeifman says Hillary wrote a fraudulent legal brief, and confiscated public documents to hide her deception.

Hillary wanted to present in her brief that there was no right to representation by counsel during an impeachment proceeding. Zeifman told Hillary about the case of Supreme Court Justice William O. Douglas, who faced an impeachment attempt in 1970….

As soon as the impeachment resolutions were introduced by (then-House Minority Leader Gerald) Ford, and they were referred to the House Judiciary Committee, the first thing Douglas did was hire himself a lawyer.

Douglas was allowed to keep counsel by the Judicial Committee in place at the time, which clearly established a precedent. Zeifman told Hillary that all the documents establishing this fact were in the Judiciary Committee’s public files.

That was  a mistake, per Zeifman…

Hillary then removed all the Douglas files to the offices where she was located, which at that time was secured and inaccessible to the public.

Hillary then wrote a legal brief which argued that there was no precedent for the right to representation by counsel during an impeachment proceeding…ignoring the Douglas case completely.

The brief was so laughingly fraudulent, Zeifman believes Hillary would have been disbarred if she had ever actually submitted it to a judge.

Zeifman says that if Hillary and her associates had succeeded, members of the House Judiciary Committee would have also been denied the right to cross-examine witnesses, and denied the opportunity to even be a part of the drafting of articles of impeachment against Nixon.

After President Richard M. Nixon resigned in August, rendering the matter of her deception moot, Hillary became a faculty member of the University of Arkansas Law School in Fayetteville, where her Yale Law School classmate and boyfriend Bill Clinton was also teaching.

Hillary Rodham married Bill Clinton on October 11, 1975

PRESENT: Foxnews.com reports that

Hillary Clinton is getting hammered for saying on “Fox News Sunday” that FBI Director James Comey confirmed her statements on her email scandal were “truthful” – with one prominent fact-checker giving the claim four “Pinocchios.”

The former secretary of state cited Comey when asked to account for her repeated claims that she never sent or received material marked classified on her personal email account. When host Chris Wallace noted that Comey said those things were not true, Clinton disagreed.

“That’s not what I heard Director Comey say … Director Comey said that my answers were truthful and what I’ve said is consistent with what I have told the American people, that there were decisions discussed and made to classify retroactively certain of the emails,” she said.  

The Washington Post Fact Checker picked apart that statement, ultimately giving it four “Pinocchios,” its worst rating for truthfulness.

“Clinton is cherry-picking statements by Comey to preserve her narrative about the unusual setup of a private email server. This allows her to skate past the more disturbing findings of the FBI investigation,” the Post wrote, noting that she was relying on Comey’s statement to Congress: “We have no basis to conclude she lied to the FBI.”

However, the FBI director did not say the same about her statements to the American public. And during testimony before a House committee, Comey said it was “not true” that nothing Clinton sent or received was marked classified. To the contrary, he said, “there was classified material emailed.”

The Post concluded: “While Comey did say there was no evidence she lied to the FBI, that is not the same as saying she told the truth to the American public — which was the point of Wallace’s question. Comey has repeatedly not taken a stand on her public statements.

“And although Comey did say many emails were retroactively classified, he also said that there were some emails that were already classified that should not have been sent on an unclassified, private server. That’s the uncomfortable truth that Clinton has trouble admitting.”

…The campaign has stressed, with regard to the emails apparently marked classified, that Comey acknowledged during the hearing in question the markings themselves were not properly marked. The State Department also has suggested those markings shouldn’t have been there.

Comey, though, also challenged other statements by Clinton during his testimony. On her claim that she used one device, Comey said, “She used multiple devices.” And on her claim that she turned over all work-related emails, he said, “No, we found work-related emails, thousands that were not returned.”

Clinton, meanwhile, acknowledged again on “Fox News Sunday” that she made a “mistake,” while appearing to spread the blame around.

“I take classification seriously. I relied on and had every reason to rely on the judgments of the professionals with whom I worked. And so, in retrospect, maybe some people are saying, ‘Well, … among those 300 people, they made the wrong call,’” Clinton said. “At the time, there was no reason, in my view, to doubt the professionalism and the determination by the people who work every single day on behalf of our country.”

OUR NATION’S FUTURE: Even though the Clintons have always appeared to be above the law, and skip past every scandal  like a fried egg in those Teflon Skillet commercials, with this November’s Presidential Election, an example must be set, so that the America’s secrets and the safety of our Military and Intelligence Operatives acting covertly in foreign lands, will be protected for the continued sovereignty of our nation.

A President of the United States must be trustworthy, not only for the reassurance of its citizens that they will do the right thing when a crisis occurs, but also for the assurance of our overseas allies, that we will have their backs in case of a crisis in their nation.

Time and time again, from Watergate to Travelgate to Benghazigate, and now to E-mailgate, Hillary Clinton has proven to be a ruthless, untrustworthy, Machiavellian professional politician, who only cares about herself and her ascension to the Presidency of the United States of America.

Every successful person is ambitious. Donald J Trump is an ambitious man. However, judging from his track record and the charitable things that he has done for Americans behind the scenes,  for which he neither sought nor received any publicity for, and his public accomplishments, along with his stated love for this country and his wish for us to prosper economically and once again resume our place as Leader of the Free World, as an average American, I will be voting for him in November of 2016 to become our next President.

America has endured enough duplicity and political chicanery in the last 7 years to last us for centuries. The deleterious effect of the Presidency of Barack Hussein Obama has left a stain of incompetent leadership and out-of-control political correctness which will take years to wash away.

America and the rest of the Free World cannot afford the devastating effects of a Hillary Clinton Presidency.

Just like the Broadcast Networks have ended just about all of their soap operas which aired on their channels on a daily basis, Americans need to pull the plug on the failed leadership and the legacy which Barack Hussein Obama is leaving behind.

Indeed, it is time to make America great again.

E-mailgate: Huma Interviewed by FBI. Is Hillary Next?

May 6, 2016

image

In my time on this planet, I never thought that I would see the day, when a Professional Politician running for the highest office in this land, would be facing the possibility of a Federal Indictment from the Department of Justice, on the charge that she used a private e-mail server to circumvent the Rules of Protocol, regarding the transmitting of Top-Secret Information.

The Associated Press reports that

The FBI has interviewed Huma Abedin, a close aide to Hillary Clinton, as part of a federal investigation into Clinton’s use of a private email server as secretary of state, a person familiar with the probe said Thursday.

The person insisted on anonymity to discuss an ongoing investigation.

The FBI and Justice Department have been investigating whether sensitive information that flowed through Clinton’s email server was mishandled.

Abedin was one of Clinton’s closest aides during her tenure as the nation’s top diplomat, serving as deputy chief of staff. It was not immediately clear whether other aides have been interviewed, or when or if Clinton herself might be questioned.

“From the start, Hillary Clinton has offered to answer any questions that would help the Justice Department complete its review, and we hope and expect that anyone else who is asked would do the same,” Clinton campaign spokesman Brian Fallon said in a statement. “We are confident the review will conclude that nothing inappropriate took place.”

It is not known how much longer the investigation will take. FBI Director James Comey has said there is no timetable for finishing the probe and it’s being done thoroughly.

A Justice Department spokeswoman declined to comment Thursday, and a spokesman for the FBI did not return messages seeking comment.

On Wednesday, a federal judge in Washington said he may order Clinton, the Democratic presidential front-runner, to testify under oath about whether she used a private email server to evade public records disclosures.

The order from U.S. District Judge Emmet Sullivan granted a request from the conservative legal advocacy group Judicial Watch to question six current and former State Department staffers, including Abedin, about the creation and purpose of the email system. Those interviews would be part of a civil case from Judicial Watch about whether the State Department conducted an adequate search of public records in response to a Freedom of Information Act request.

Clinton has acknowledged during the campaign that her home-based email setup was a mistake, but insists she never sent or received any documents that were marked classified at the time.

She has dismissed the idea that she could face legal trouble over the use of the server, responding to a debate question in March about the prospect of a federal indictment by saying, “It’s not going to happen.”

Mrs. Clinton, as shown by her complete disdain for the American People and the laws which govern us, is unfit to hold public office.

The old axiom is true. We ARE judged by the company that we keep.

The fact that the Former Secretary of State continues to hold close to her, as her confidante, a young woman with ties to the Muslim Brotherhood, shows how dangerous and untrustworthy that she truly is.

For those of you who are not aware of Ms. Abedin’s troubling past and familial connections, here are some bullet points, courtesy of discoverthenetworks.org…

Huma Abedin was born in 1976 in Kalamazoo, Michigan.

[She is the] Daughter of Saleha Mahmood Abedin, a pro-Sharia sociologist with ties to numerous Islamist organizations including the Muslim Brotherhood.

Longtime assistant to Hillary Clinton
Longtime former employee of the Institute of Muslim Minority Affairs, which shares the Muslim Brotherhood’s goal of establishing Islamic supremacy and Sharia Law worldwide.

…From 1997 until sometime before early 1999, Abedin, while still interning at the White House, was an executive board member of George Washington University’s (GWU) Muslim Students Association (MSA), heading the organization’s “Social Committee.”

It is noteworthy that in 2001-02, soon after Abedin left that executive board, the chaplain and “spritual guide” of GWU’s MSA was Anwar al-Awlaki, the al Qaeda operative who ministered to some of the men who were among the 9/11 hijackers. Another chaplain at GWU’s MSA (from at least October 1999 through April 2002) was Mohamed Omeish, who headed the International Islamic Relief Organization, which has been tied to the funding of al Qaeda.

From 1996-2008, Abedin was employed by the Institute of Muslim Minority Affairs (IMMA) as the assistant editor of its in-house publication, the Journal of Muslim Minority Affairs (JMMA). At least the first seven of those years overlapped with the al Qaeda-affiliated Abdullah Omar Naseef’s active presence at IMMA. Abedin’s last six years at the Institute (2002-2008) were spent as a JMMA editorial board member; for one of those years, 2003, Naseef and Abedin served together on that board.

Abedin went on maternity leave after giving birth to a baby boy in early December 2011. When she returned to work in June 2012, the State Department granted her an arrangement that allowed her to do outside consulting work as a “special government employee,” even as she remained a top advisor in the Department. Abedin did not disclose on her financial report either the arrangement or the$135,000 she earned from it, in violation of a law mandating that public officials disclose significant sources of income. Abedin’s outside clients included the U.S. State Department, Hillary Clinton, the William Jefferson Clinton Foundation, and Teneo (a firm co-founded by Doug Band, a former counselor for Bill Clinton). Good-government groups warned of the potential conflict-of-interest inherent in an arangement where a government employee maintains private clients.
On February 1, 2013—Hillary Clinton’s final day as Secretary of State—Abedin resigned her post as Mrs. Clinton’s deputy chief of staff. Yet she would continue to serve as a close aide to Clinton.

On March 1, 2013, Abedin was tapped to run Clinton’s post-State Department transition team, comprised of a six-person “transition office” located in Washington.

Huma Abedin’s brother, Hassan Abedin, has ties to the Muslim Brotherhood and is currently an associate editor with the JMMA. Hassan was once a fellow at the Oxford Center for Islamic Studies, at a time when the Center’s board included such Brotherhood-affiliated figures as Yusuf al-Qaradawi and Abdullah Omar Naseef.

Huma’s sister, Heba Abedin (formerly known as “Heba A. Khaled”), is an assistant editor with JMMA, where she served alongside Huma prior to the latter’s departure.

Speaking straight from the heart, as an American Citizen, I find it beyond the pale that, during the time of Hillary Clinton’s tenure as Secretary of State, someone with direct ties to our sworn enemies, the Muslim Brotherhood, had access to the highest level of Top Secret Information contained in our State Department, being sent to her over Secretary Clinton’s own unsecured e-mail Server.

And, the thing is, she not only had access through her job as Assistant to Secretary of State Clinton, she also had access to government information through pillow talk with her husband, then-Congressman and “Professional Sexter” Anthony Weiner.

Being the “proud Muslim” that she has proclaimed herself to be, it is not beyond the realm of possibility that this information found its way to her “troubling Familial Affiliations”?

Which brings up a troubling question:

Considering her familial ties, how deeply was Ms. Abedin involved in “BenghaziGate”?

Whin I first considered the reality of Hillary Clinton running for President, a great many thoughts entered my head…some of them even repeatable.

In fact, there are a lot of images that race through my mind, right now, on the morning of “Super Tuesday”, as I sit here at my computer.

I remember the image of a lone terrorist, brandishing a machine gun, standing in front of the burning Benghazi Consulate.

I also remember the image of Benghazi Barbarians dragging a murdered Ambassador Chris Stevens through the streets, taking pictures every few yards, with their cell phones.

My mind envisions the image of two brave Americans, up on a roof holding off 100 Muslim Terrorists, trying desperately to hold out for help which was denied to them, until finally the overwhelming numbers which comprise the horde of barbarians, murdered them as well.

I can imagine Ambassador Stevens’ elderly mother, making the trip from the West Coast to the East Coast to pick up the lifeless body of her abused and murdered son, whom she and her entire family were so proud of.

Finally, I remember the show of hypocrisy involving members of this anti-American Administration, including then-Secretary of State Clinton, solemnly welcoming the bodies of those brave Americans home.

Former Secretary Clinton…the truth makes a big difference…even after all this time, to the families of those that were so savagely murdered that fateful night…and to the millions of Americans who still believe in this “Shining City on a Hill”.

Americans deserve the truth.

And, you should be ashamed to be running for the office of President of the United States.

…But, you’re not.

It is now inevitable, that you will be chosen as the Democrat party’s Candidate for the Presidency of the United States of America.

It is also inevitable that American Businessman and Entrepreneur, Donald J. Trump, will be the Republican Party’s Presidential Candidate.

Former Secretary Clinton, as you prepare to attack American Businessman and Entrepreneur, Donald J. Trump, you need to remember that

People who live in Glass Houses should not throw stones.

Especially, when your Glass House resembles the Ice Palace in the Disney Animated Movie, “Frozen”.

You may want to consider following the advice of the popular song in that movie and “Let It Go”.

But, of course, you won’t.

Rules are for “the little people”.

E-mailgate: FBI Offers Staffer Immunity While the Potential President Proceeds With Her Prevarications

March 3, 2016

Her-shadow-600-LI (2)As the “Inevitable” Democrat Presidential Candidate, Hillary Rodham Clinton, continues her march toward that Political Party’s Nomination, the FBI Investigation into the mishandling of Top Secret E-mails by her and her staff, while she was the Secretary of State, continues to grow.

The Washington Post reports that

The Justice Department has granted immunity to a former State Department staffer, who worked on Hillary Clinton’s private email server, as part of a criminal investigation into the possible mishandling of classified information, according to a senior law enforcement official.

The official said the FBI had secured the cooperation of Bryan Pagliano, who worked on Clinton’s 2008 presidential campaign before setting up the server in her New York home in 2009.

As the FBI looks to wrap up its investigation in the coming months, agents are likely to want to interview Clinton and her senior aides about the decision to use a private server, how it was set up, and whether any of the participants knew they were sending classified information in emails, current and former officials said.

The inquiry comes against a political backdrop in which Clinton is the favorite to secure the Democratic nomination for the presidency.

So far, there is no indication that prosecutors have convened a grand jury in the email investigation to subpoena testimony or documents, which would require the participation of a U.S. attorney’s office.

“There was wrongdoing,” said a former senior law enforcement official. “But was it criminal wrongdoing?”

Clinton has since apologized for what happened: “Yes, I should have used two email addresses, one for personal matters and one for my work at the State Department. Not doing so was a mistake. I’m sorry about it, and I take full responsibility.” 

Any decision to charge someone would involve Attorney General Loretta E. Lynch, who told Congress when asked last month about the email inquiry: “That matter is being handled by career independent law enforcement agents, FBI agents, as well as the career independent attorneys in the Department of Justice. They follow the evidence, they look at the law and they’ll make a recommendation to me when the time is appropriate.”

The fact that there is ambivalence concerning going forward with an indictment is not a surprise.

There is too much at stake.

The depth and breadth of Hillary’s lying is no surprise, either.

She has had a lifetime of practice.

In 1971, she arrived in Washington, D.C. to work on U.S. Senator Walter Mondale’s sub-committee on migrant workers. The next summer found her out west, working for the campaign of Democratic presidential nominee George McGovern.Then, in the spring of 1974, Rodham became a member of the presidential impeachment inquiry staff, advising the Judiciary Committee of the House of Representatives during the Watergate Scandal.Her boss back then, Jerry Zeifman, now-retired general counsel and chief of staff of the House Judiciary Committee, tells a very revealing story concerning her work there.According to Zeifman, a lifelong Democrat, Hillary got a job working on the investigation at the behest of her former Yale Law Professor, Burke Marshall, also Sen. Ted Kennedy’s chief counsel in the Chappaquiddick affair.When the Watergate Investigation was over, Zeifman fired Hillary from the committee staff and refused to give her a letter of recommendation. That made the Future First Lady and Secretary of State one of only three people who earned that badge of dishonor in Zeifman’s 17-year career.Why?

According to Zeifman,

Because she was a liar. 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.

Zeifman claims that she was one of several individuals including Marshall, Special Counsel John Doar, and Senior Associate Special Counsel (and future Clinton White House Counsel) Bernard Nussbaum, who plotted to deny Richard Nixon the right to counsel during the investigation.

Zeifman believes  that they were deathly afraid of putting the break-in’s mastermind E. Howard Hunt on the stand to be cross-examined by Counsel to the President.  The reason being, Hunt had the goods regarding some dirty dealings  in the Kennedy Administration that would have made Watergate look like a kid busting open his Piggy Bank…dealings which purportedly included Kennedy’s complicity in the attempted assassination of Fidel Castro.

Hillary and her associates were acting directly against the decision of top Democrats, up to and including then-House Majority Leader Tip O’Neill, who all believed that Nixon clearly had the right to counsel.

The reason that Hillary and the rest came up with the scheme is because they believed that they could gain enough votes on the Judiciary Committee to change House rules and deny counsel to Nixon.

In order to pull off this scheme, Zeifman says Hillary wrote a fraudulent legal brief, and confiscated public documents to hide her deception.

Hillary wanted to present in her brief that there was no right to representation by counsel during an impeachment proceeding. Zeifman told Hillary about the case of Supreme Court Justice William O. Douglas, who faced an impeachment attempt in 1970….

As soon as the impeachment resolutions were introduced by (then-House Minority Leader Gerald) Ford, and they were referred to the House Judiciary Committee, the first thing Douglas did was hire himself a lawyer.

Douglas was allowed to keep counsel by the Judicial Committee in place at the time, which clearly established a precedent. Zeifman told Hillary that all the documents establishing this fact were in the Judiciary Committee’s public files.

That was  a mistake, per Zeifman…

Hillary then removed all the Douglas files to the offices where she was located, which at that time was secured and inaccessible to the public.

Hillary then wrote a legal brief which argued that there was no precedent for the right to representation by counsel during an impeachment proceeding…ignoring the Douglas case completely.

The brief was so laughingly fraudulent, Zeifman believes Hillary would have been disbarred if she had ever actually submitted it to a judge.

Zeifman says that if Hillary and her associates had succeeded, members of the House Judiciary Committee would have also been denied the right to cross-examine witnesses, and denied the opportunity to even be a part of the drafting of articles of impeachment against Nixon.

On Jan. 8, 1996, in a still-relevant commentary titled “Blizzard of Lies,” New York Times columnist William Safire described Hillary Clinton as “a congenital liar.” Here are excerpts from that article.

Americans of all political persuasions are coming to the sad realization that our First Lady — a woman of undoubted talents who was a role model for many in her generation — is a congenital liar. Drip by drip, like Whitewater torture, the case is being made that she is compelled to mislead, and to ensnare her subordinates and friends in a web of deceit.

1. Remember the story she told about studying The Wall Street Journal to explain her 10,000 percent profit in 1979 commodity trading? We now know that was a lie told to turn aside accusations that as the Governor’s wife she profited corruptly, her account being run by a lawyer for state poultry interests through a disreputable broker.

She lied for good reason: To admit otherwise would be to confess taking, and paying taxes on, what some think amounted to a $100,000 bribe.

2. The abuse of Presidential power known as Travelgate elicited another series of lies. She induced a White House lawyer to assert flatly to investigators that Mrs. Clinton did not order the firing of White House travel aides, who were then harassed by the F.B.I. and Justice Department to justify patronage replacement by Mrs. Clinton’s cronies.

Now we know, from a memo long concealed from investigators, that there would be “hell to pay” if the furious First Lady’s desires were scorned. The career of the lawyer who transmitted Hillary’s lie to authorities is now in jeopardy. Again, she lied with good reason: to avoid being identified as a vindictive political power player who used the F.B.I. to ruin the lives of people standing in the way of juicy patronage.

3. In the aftermath of the apparent suicide of her former partner and closest confidant, White House Deputy Counsel Vincent Foster, she ordered the overturn of an agreement to allow the Justice Department to examine the files in the dead man’s office. Her closest friends and aides, under oath, have been blatantly disremembering this likely obstruction of justice, and may have to pay for supporting Hillary’s lie with jail terms.

Again, the lying was not irrational. Investigators believe that damning records from the Rose Law Firm, wrongfully kept in Vincent Foster’s White House office, were spirited out in the dead of night and hidden from the law for two years — in Hillary’s closet, in Web Hubbell’s basement before his felony conviction, in the President’s secretary’s personal files — before some were forced out last week.

…One reason for the Friday-night dribble of evidence from the White House is the discovery by the F.B.I. of copies of some of those records elsewhere. When Clinton witnesses are asked about specific items in “lost” records — which investigators have — the White House “finds” its copy and releases it. By concealing the Madison billing records two days beyond the statute of limitations, Hillary evaded a civil suit by bamboozled bank regulators.

Another reason for recent revelations is the imminent turning of former aides and partners of Hillary against her; they were willing to cover her lying when it advanced their careers, but are inclined to listen to their own lawyers when faced with perjury indictments.

So, now, here we are.

A Modern Madame Bovary, who has assumed power and vitality at the expense of others, from Arkansas to New York to Washington, DC, is about to be the Democrat Nominee for the Presidency of the greatest country on the Face of the Earth, with the present (in more ways than one) President as, apparently, her willing accomplice…and, an emaciated-appearing, crotchety, old Ex-President playing the role of Renfield to her incarnation of Dracula (“Yes, Mistress..heh heh…heh heh.”)

The late, great William Safire was a prophet.

Lying comes as naturally to The Former First Lady as breathing in and out.

As I have written, from the time she was fired from the Watergate Investigative Committee to wiping her private e-mail server, Hillary Rodham Clinton has been as crooked as a dog’s hind leg.

Machiavellian in political ambition and armed with a vocabulary that would make the legendary Gong Show Judge, Jaye P. Morgan, blush (look her up, kids), “the Hildebeast” has cut a wide swatch in her path to Political Power.

It should be obvious to Americans by now, that she believes that morality and ethics are for “the little people” (i.e., you and me).

We already have a congenital liar in the White House.

We certainly do not need another one.

Oh…and Ambassador Christopher Stevens remains unavailable for comment.

Until He Comes,
