Hillary – Lies, Lies and More Lies

What follows is an excellent article by Carl Bernstein that helps get to Hillary Clinton’s core values, beliefs and character.  Dick Morris also has an excellent article that helps to understand why Bill Safire, in 1996, said Hillary is a “congential liar” and Britt Hume says keeps telling “howlers”.  We have to ask ourselves, given Hillary’s lack of competence (her claim to 35 years of experience is, get this, also a lie), and her flawed character, “What kind of president would she be?”  Would she be a Democratic “Nixon”, seeing conspercies at every turn, would she have to confess, “I am not a crook/liar?”, would she use a secret “plummers group” to break in on her opposition? How did the Democrats allow this to happen this election? Bernstein: Hillary Clinton: Truth or ConsequencesPosted: 10:14 AM ETHillary Clinton has many admirable qualities, but candor and openness and transparency and a commitment to well-established fact have not been notable among them.  The indisputable elements of  her Bosnian adventure affirm (again) the reluctant conclusion I reached in the final chapter of A Woman In Charge, my biography of her published last June:   “Since her Arkansas years [I wrote], Hillary Rodham Clinton has always had a difficult relationship with the truth… [J]udged against the facts, she has often chosen to obfuscate, omit, and avoid.  It is an understatement by now that she has been known to apprehend truths about herself and the events of her life that others do not exactly share. ” [italics added]  As I noted: “Almost always, something holds her back from telling the whole story, as if she doesn’t trust the reader, listener, friend, interviewer, constituent—or perhaps herself—to understand the true significance of events…”The Bosnian episode is a watershed event, because it indelibly brings to mind so many examples of this tendency– from the White House years and, worse, from Hillary Clinton’s take-no-prisoners presidential campaign. Her record as a public person is replete with “misstatements” and elisions and retracted and redacted and revoked assertions…     
When the facts surrounding such characteristic episodes finally get sorted out — usually long after they have been challenged — the  mysteries and contradictions are often dealt with by Hillary Clinton and her apparat in a blizzard of footnotes, addenda, revision, and disingenuous re-explanation: as occurred in regard to the draconian secrecy she imposed on her health-care task force (and its failed efforts in 1993-94); explanations of what could have been dutifully acknowledged, and deserved to be dismissed as a minor conflict of interest — once and for all — in Whitewater; or her recent Michigan-Florida migration from acceptance of the DNC’s refusal to recognize those states’ convention delegations (when it looked like she had the nomination sewn up) to her re-evaluation of  the matter as a grave denial of basic human rights, after she fell impossibly behind in the delegate count.The latest episode — the sniper fire she so vividly remembered and described in chilling detail to buttress her claims of  foreign policy “experience” — like the peace she didn’t bring to Northern Ireland, recalls another famous instance of faulty recollection during a crucial period in her odyssey.On January 15, 1995, she had just published her book, It Takes a Village, intended to herald a redemptive “come back” after the ravages of health care; Whitewater; the Travel Office firings she had ordered (but denied ordering); the disastrous staffing of the White House by the First Lady, not the President — all among   the egregious errors  that had led  to the election of the Newt Gingrich Congress in 1994.On her book tour, she was asked on National Public Radio about the re-emergence of dormant Whitewater questions that week, when the so-called “missing billing records” had been found. Hillary stated with unequivocal certainty that she had consistently made public all the relevant documents related to Whitewater, including “every document we had,” to the editors of the New York Times before the newspaper’s original Whitewater story ran during Bill Clinton’s 1992 presidential campaign.    Even her closest aides — as in the case of the Bosnian episode18 years later — could not imagine what possessed her to say such a thing.  It was simply not true, as her lawyers and the editors of the Times (like CBS in the latest instance) recognized, leading to huge stories about her latest twisting of the facts. “Oh my God, we didn’t,” said Susan Thomasas, Hillary’s great friend, who was left to explain to the White House lawyers exactly how Hillary’s aides had carefully cherry-picked documents accessed for the Times in the presidential campaign.  The White House was forced — once again — to acknowledge the first lady had been ‘mistaken;” her book tour was overwhelmed by the matter, and Times’ columnist  Bill Safire that month coined the memorable characterization of Hillary Clinton as “a congenital liar.”“Hillary values context; she does see the big picture. Hers, in fact, is not the mind of a conventional politician,”  I wrote in A Woman In Charge. “But when it comes to herself, she sees with something less than candor and lucidity. She sees, like so many others, what she wants to see.”The book concludes with this paragraph:“As Hillary has continued to speak from the protective shell of her own making, and packaged herself for the widest possible consumption, she has misrepresented not just facts but often her essential self.  Great politicians have always been marked by the consistency of their core beliefs, their strength of character in advocacy, and the self-knowledge that informs bold leadership. Almost always, Hillary has stood for good things. Yet there is a disconnect between her convictions and her words and actions. This is where Hillary disappoints. But the jury remains out. She still has time to prove her case, to effectuate those things that make her special, not fear them or camouflage them. We would all be the better for it, because what lies within may have the potential to change the world, if only a little.”The jury — armed with definitive evidence like the CBS tape of  Hillary Clinton’s Bosnian adventure — seems on the verge of returning a negative verdict on her candidacy.   And from Dick Morris, the (partial) list: Hillary simply cannot tell the truth. Here’s her scorecard:Admitted Lies• Chelsea was jogging around the Trade Center on Sept. 11, 2001. (She was in bed watching it on TV.)
• Hillary was named after Sir Edmund Hillary. (She admitted she was wrong. He climbed Mt. Everest five years after her birth.)
• She was under sniper fire in Bosnia. (A girl presented her with flowers at the foot of the ramp.)
• She learned in The Wall Street Journal how to make a killing in the futures market. (It didn’t cover the market back then.)
Whoppers She Won’t Confess To• She didn’t know about the FALN pardons.
• She didn’t know that her brothers were being paid to get pardons that Clinton granted.
• Taking the White House gifts was a clerical error.
• She didn’t know that her staff would fire the travel office staff after she told them to do so.
• She didn’t know that the Peter Paul fundraiser in Hollywood in 2000 cost $700,000 more than she reported it had.
• She opposed NAFTA at the time.
• She was instrumental in the Irish peace process.
• She urged Bill to intervene in Rwanda.
• She played a role in the ’90s economic recovery.
• The billing records showed up on their own.
• She thought Bill was innocent when the Monica scandal broke.
• She was always a Yankees fan.
• She had nothing to do with the New Square Hasidic pardons (after they voted for her 1,400-12 and she attended a meeting at the White House about the pardons).
• She negotiated for the release of refugees in Macedonia (who were released the day before she got there).
With a record like that, is it any wonder that we suspect her of being less than honest and straightforward?

  2. It’s a wonder Mr. Zeifman ever got his account of firing Hillary into the light of day. As you may know, Jerry Zeifman fired Hillary Rodham for her unethical practices during the Watergate Investigation. Mr. Zeifman’s story is important. Not only does it go to character, it goes to a lifelong pattern of lying and obfuscation on the part of Hillary Rodham Clinton. And, it took Zeifman twelve years to get it aired. A candidate must be vetted; before being elected or appointed to a position of trust; and it is this awareness, to which every white-collar criminal fine-tunes his or her antenna. After Watergate, Zeifman could not recommend Hillary for any subsequent position of public or private trust, nor furnish her with a letter of recommendation. Should anyone doubt Mr. Zeifman’s veracity regarding the Clintons: http://theseedsof9-11.com

    Why exactly was Hillary fired? “Because she was a liar,” Mr. Zeifman said in an interview last week. “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.” “The Clintons corrupted the soul of the Democratic Party.” -Henry Ruth, lead Watergate courtroom prosecutor.

  3. Arrest Barrack Obama for Treason, no incumbents.

    The Talking Points about Benghazi are still lies, obstruction of justice, and Treason.

    How is Obama’s and Hillary’s Arab spring doing these days?

    You can not support Hillary Clinton or Barrack Obama and support or value Human Life, Human Rights, or Freedom, just as you can not support the Hamas, the Muslim Brotherhood, or the Al Qaeda and suport or value Human Life, Human Rights, or Freedom.

    The Hamas, the Muslim Brotherhood, and the Al Qaeda are Terrorists.

    The Untied States should not support or finance Terror.

    Sharia Law is evil and violates the Human Rights and Freedom of women.

    In Muslim nations women and children are slaves.

    End our stupid wars.

    Quit financing Terrorists.

    Quit supporting Terrorists Groups.

    Our Government should quit using Federal Agencies to harass, intimidate, and invesitgate veterans, patriots, conservatives, and enemies of our traitor in chief.

    Shut down the FEMA, EPA, IRS, National Endowment for Democracy, and Bureau of Land Management. Under Joe Biden, Eric Holder, and Barrack Obama, they have become too corrupt to function as they should.

    The Citizens of the United States deserve the protection of the Bill of Rights and our Constitution, shred every one of Obama’s Executive Orders which have changed our Law.

    Repeal Obamacare, the Cyber Security Bill, the NDAA, and the Monsanto Protection Bill.

    The National Endowment for Democracy, the United States State Department, our Administration, and the CIA commit Color Revolutions which are illegal against legal foreign goverments with demostrations, violence, Terrorism, and war.

    No Incumbents.

    Vote every one of our Senators and Representatives out. They have not been working as well as they could to get rid of the traiter and they have gave us our wars. They allowed the National Endowment for Democracy to create, support, and finance the violence in the Ukraine which caused Russia to reclaim Crimea. They gave us our stupid wars. They issued sanctions against Russia, though the EU and the United States are responsible for the trouble there. they allow Barrack Obama and our CIA to finance Terrorists in Syria. They wanted to start bombing Syria. They allow our stupid covert and Drone war to continue to spread bloodshed, violence, death, Terrorism, and War and to give the Terrorists the Media attention they want. Every one of our Senate and House who has voted for War, petitioned for the destruction of the Second Amendment, voted for the NDAA, Obamacare, the Cyber Security Bill, or Obamacare should be fired, today. They should never be able to hold any local, state, or national office in the Untied States of America, they have proved they can not keep their Oath of Office, just as Joe Biden, Eric Holder, every member of Barrack Obama’s Adminstration, and every one of Obama’s Appointees has proven. FBI should use RICO to investigate FEMA, the IRS, EPA, National Endowment for Democracy, Barrack Obama, Joe Biden, John Kerry, Harry Reid, and the Bureau of Land Management. NSA and Homeland Security should be shut down. NSA’s land, files, buildings, and equipment gave to the FBI. Every thing Homeland Security and FEMA controls should be turned over the the local National Guard or the Military. We can do with out any Senator or Representative in Washington, DC till election in November. The CIA should be stripped of it’s power to act and only be allowed to investigate.

    NATO is nothing but a War Machine and should be completely shut down.

    The United States and the EU created, financed, and supported the violence and terrorism in the Ukraine with the help of the National Endowment for Democracy and George Soros.

    The United States funds the Terrorists in the Civial War in Syria.

    The Violence in Syria and Ukraine, like much of the violence against the legal governments and regime changes all over the world are the CIA’s Color Revolutions. If there is violence, Terrorism, or war the CIA is there with the blessing of our current Senate and House spending our Tax Dollars to spread death.

    If a nation wants to choose it’s own type of government and it’s own leaders, it needs to kick out the EU, NATO, the United Nations, and the United States and every one of their representatives.

    George Soros’s ideas for the world are wrong and evil.

    No Incumbents.

    We should always have the Freedom of Speech on the sidewalk and on the Internet. Everyone of our current Senators and Representatives should be fired or fired and arrested for passing the Cyber Security Bill, it does nothing to secure the internet or your home computer. It is only about allowing our Government to spy on you. Obama signed this horrible unconstitutional bill.

    Obama’s new and improved Patriot Act, Obamacare, and the NDAA are a direct attack on your basic human rights and your freedoms.

    The Bill of Rights protects the citizens of the United States and the Constitution is the only thing that makes the United States what it is.

    Obama should be arrested for Treason and every one of his executive orders should be shredded. Eric Holder, Joe Biden, John Kerry, and every one of Obama’s Appointees should be fired, today.

    The IRS, EPA, and the Bureau of Land Management are too corrupt to operate after working with Eric Holder, Joe Biden, Obama’s Adminstration, Obama’s Appointees, and Obama. Shut them down. Repeal the horrible Obamacare monster. The delays did not fix anything. Obamacare is the largest Bait and Switch Scam ever committed. If you like your plan you can keep your plan. Lies got Obamacare Passed. Obamacare is one of the most horribly unconstitutional bills that have been passed, like the Monanto Can Poison the United States Bill which was also passed by our current liars and parasites of the Senate and House and signed into law by Obama, who should be in GITMO and who should have his property and money seized because he has been supporting and financing Terrorism.

    End our stupid wars.

    No Incumbents.
