Points To Ponder About Hillary

This was an e-mail I received today from a friend. As it says, Dick Morris worked with the Clintons. He was the one who said that when Hillary said that she had more experience because she had eight years in the White House. Dick said, “So did the baker.”

Subject: Facts to Ponder... What has happened to common sense?

The Democrats are Coming

by Dick Morris, former political advisor to President Bill Clinton

If you happen to see the Bill Clinton five-minute TV ad for Hillary in which he introduces the commercial by saying that he wants to share some things we may not know about Hillary's background . . . beware .

As I was there for most of their presidency and know them, better than just about anyone, I offer a few corrections;

LIE 1. Bill says: 'In law school Hillary worked on legal services for the poor.'
The facts are: Hillary's main extra-curricular activity in law school was helping the Black Panthers, on trial in Connecticut for torturing and killing a federal agent. She went to court every day as part of a law student monitoring committee trying to spot civil rights violations and develop grounds for appeal.

LIE 2. Bill says: 'Hillary spent a year after graduation working on a children's rights project for poor kids.'
The facts are: Hillary interned with Bob Truehaft, the head of the California Communist Party. She met Bob when he represented the Panthers and traveled all the way to San Francisco to take an internship with him.

LIE 3. Bill says: ’Hillary could have written her own job ticket, but she turned down all the lucrative job offers.'
The facts are: She flunked the DC bar exam, yes, flunked, it is a matter of record, and only passed the Arkansas bar. She had no job offers in Arkansas, none, and only got hired by the University of Arkansas Law School at Fayetteville because Bill was already teaching there. She did not join the prestigious Rose Law Firm until Bill became Arkansas Attorney General and was made a partner only after he was elected Arkansas Governor.

LIE 4. Bill says: 'President Carter appointed Hillary to the Legal Services Board of Directors and she became its chairman.'
The facts are: The appointment was in exchange for Bill's support for Carter in his 1980 primary against Ted Kennedy. Hillary then became chairman in a coup in which she won a majority away from Carter's choice to be chairman.

LIE 5. Bill says: 'She served on the board of the Arkansas Children's Hospital.'
The facts are: Yes she did. But, her main board activity, not mentioned by Bill, was to sit on the Wal-Mart board of directors, for a substantial fee. She was silent about their labor and health care practices.

LIE 6. Bill says: ‘Hillary didn’t succeed at getting health care for all Americans in 1994 but she kept working at it and helped to create the Children's Health Insurance Program (CHIP) that provides five million children with health insurance.'
The facts are: Hillary had nothing to do with creating CHIP. It was included in the budget deal between Clinton and Republican Majority Leader Senator Trent Lott. I know; I helped to negotiate the deal. The money came half from the budget deal and half from the Attorney Generals' tobacco settlement. Hillary had nothing to do with either source of funds

LIE 7. Bill says: ’Hillary was the face of America all over the world.'
The facts are: Her visits were part of a program to get her out of town so that Bill would not appear weak by feeding stories that Hillary was running the White House. Her visits abroad were entirely touristic and symbolic and there was no substantive diplomacy on any of them.

LIE 8. Bill says: ’Hillary was an excellent Senator who kept fighting for children's and women’s issues.'
The facts are: Other than totally meaningless legislation like changing the names on courthouses and post offices, she has passed only four substantive pieces of legislation. One set up a national park in Puerto Rico. A second provided respite care for family members helping their relatives through Alzheimer's or other conditions. And two were routine bills to aid 911 victims and responders which were sponsored by the entire NY delegation. Presently she is trying to have the US memorialize the Woodstock fiasco of 40 years ago.

Here is what bothers me more than anything else about Hillary Clinton. She has done everything possible to weaken the President and our country (that's you and me!) when it comes to the war on terror.

1. She wants to close GITMO and move the combatants to the USA where they would have access to our legal system.

2. She wants to eliminate the monitoring of suspected Al Qaeda phone calls to/from the USA.

3. She wants to grant constitutional rights to enemy combatants captured on the battlefield.

4. She wants to eliminate the monitoring of money transfers between suspected Al Qaeda cells and supporters in the USA.

5. She wants to eliminate the type of interrogation tactics used by the military & CIA where coercion might be used when questioning known terrorists even though such tactics might save American lives.

One cannot think of a single bill Hillary has introduced or a single comment she has made that would tend to strengthen our country in the War on Terror.

But, one can think of a lot of comments she has made that weaken our country and makes it a more dangerous situation for all of us.

Bottom line: She goes hand in hand with the ACLU on far too many issues where common sense is abandoned.

Pass this on. Thanks for reading this to the end. MY words: We must not forget these facts so quickly as to sell our Nation short. Thank you GOD for Emails; we could never count on our News media.

I have heard all this before, but this is the first time I have seen it in print by a former Clinton supporter and Democrat. If any of this is wrong, Brother Dave will correct it. I do not intend to mislead, but I do intend to fight Socialism as hard as I can.

That's why I voted for Obama.

I am so scared that Hitlery will get in. I'm doing everything I can to get people to go vote, and not for her.

e.Craig Crawford said...

Sounds all true to me; typical Billery BS.

Coffeypot said...

BD, Just as bad.

burfica, keep up the good work.

e.craig, Billy Bull Shit - that's him.

Have you checked this at Snopes or anywhere for accuracy?

Southern (in)Sanity said...

Not a big Hillary Clinton fan, huh?

I still believe when push comes to shove, people will not vote for her. Not a chance.

However, I think people are realizing that as well - based on Obama's five primary victories this weekend.

Mary, I've heard Dick say most of this on talk shows and late night shows. I have to assume it is true. If it wasn't, there would be a huge backlash by the media because the Clintons are the media darlings. They can do no wrong. But both of them are evil people. Dick also said on the radio last week that Bill and Hitlery was married for the power they could have together in politics – not for love. He also said that she had Chelsea for political reasons. To give her clout with the mothers in Arkansas. They do NOTHING that isn’t goal oriented.

raw, you pick up on that did ya? Ears Obama is no better than Hilery. When looking at their Socialist leanings, they are the same. All you are voting on is a Socialist Black Man or a Socialist Woman. Period! Neither are good for America.

The key word(s) in the Dick Morris article is "Lie," which in full describes the political careers of both the Clintons. Unbridled power suppresses unwelcomed turths and the Clintons have made it their mission in life to cover their tracks with lie upon lie upon lie. Saying "It ain't so" doesn't make it so. The evidence that indite these two sleezeballs would fill a good sized library. It is the people who fail to heed the age old adgage that "those who fail to learn from history are condemned to repeat it" that have the power of the vote to determine if this sad chapter in our nation's history is to repeat itself or be stopped forever in this last ditch Clinton effort to again take control of the White House and again sully it with their total lack of decorum, integerity and decency. You think the Federal Government is intrusive now...put Hillary (and Bill) back into office and watch an even greater amount of your hard-earned money go to support those who believe that the "world owes them a living." Thank you "No, Hillary."
I may on occassion have a passing acquaintance with the devil, but I'll be damned if I'll vote to put him/her in office!

G'day from Australia,

I do like Dick Morris's observation about the baker.

Nice one.

David, welcome back mate.
