Corrupt Character Matters

It is truly sad we do not have better choices for President this year, but we do not. And while Mr. Trump carries with him a lot of baggage the sheer audacity and corruption of Hillary Clinton takes one’s breath away. Most millennials have no idea who they might vote for when they cast their vote for this feminine crook. Make no mistake this is exactly what she is; her whole life is one of staying one step ahead of the law, skirting the law, or figuring ways the law does not apply to her. From when she was the First Lady of Arkansas people soon learned that you did not cross the Clintons but especially Hillary.
Her metamorphosis from a geeky thick-lensed feminist to the political insider she is today would be breathtaking if it was not filled with so much corruption. Huffington Post reported on her Wall Street corruption in a hit piece on Republicans and linking Hillary to voting or not voting in order to enrich her campaign coffers. They related, “Hillary Clinton’s corruption thus far has not been exposed by the Republican Party, because they’ve had no need to do so: she hasn’t been the Democratic nominee for President.” They also related that “On 28 August 2006, the National Security Whistleblowers Coalition headlined ‘Senator Hillary Clinton: All Show and no Substance,’ and the well known government whistleblower Sibel Edmonds, along with the organization’s board member William Weaver, condemned her as: ‘an elected senator who has served six years in her seat, never taking a strong stand in support of her constituents on any serious or controversial issue; a senator who has used her record-breaking TV public appearances to say ‘nothing’ … an elected official who has no record of conducting investigations into cases that are matters of great concern to her constituents and to our country … a politician who has spent all her focus and energy on a campaign of shallow publicity glitz.'” (See: http://www.huffingtonpost.com/eric-zuesse/why-hillary-clinton-shoul_b_4293469.html) This is Hillary Clinton, a person who is interested only in what is best for Hillary Clinton.
Hillary’s corruption has always looked for the cash. “Show me the money,” should be her campaign slogan. She has sold out her global warming friends, anti-oil, and personal friends. Whitewater was where Bill and Hillary Clinton were associates of Jim and Susan McDougal in the Whitewater Development Corp., an Arkansas real estate investment firm that went under when McDougal’s Madison Guaranty Savings & Loan was closed by federal regulators for illegal accounting. Taxpayers lost $73 million due to Guaranty. The Clintons lost an estimated $67,000 on their investment, but McDougal helped pay off Bill Clinton’s campaign debts, and Hillary Clinton’s law firm received an unknown sum in fees for representing a Guaranty project that also failed. Then there was her earning $100,000 from a $1000 investment in cattle futures.
And how about the Rose Law Firm billing records that all of suddenly magically appeared in Mrs. Clinton’s White House office, years after they had been subpoenaed? Afterwards there was the death of Vince Foster under rather unusual circumstances and the lies and cover-up that followed that still linger to this day. Millennials will not remember her testimony before congressional investigators as she answered “I don’t know” or “I don’t remember” 250 times. Then there was Travelgate where after Bill became President Hillary engineered the firing of seven employees of the White House travel office and the hiring of a firm with ties to the Clintons to replace them. Multiple investigations absolved the president of involvement but Hillary Clinton was found to have made false statements to investigators. Sound familiar?
Few remember Filegate where hundreds of FBI background files on officials in previous Republican presidential administrations were improperly given in 1993 and 1994 to Craig Livingstone, the director of White House security who was a Hillary Clinton favorite. She also rented out the Lincoln bedroom to more than 800 donors and sold seats on Commerce Department international trade missions to corporate figures in return for big contributions to President Clinton’s 1996 re-election campaign. Then there are her shady friends John Huang, Charlie Trie, and Johnny Chung. All three collected moneys to support Hillary and Bill. Marc Rich is another shady “friend” who was pardoned after his former wife made big contributions to the Clinton presidential library and to Hillary Clinton’s 2000 Senate campaign.
Lest we forget there was the Benghazi attack where Hillary blamed it on an anti-Muslim YouTube video where she sat for an 11-hour hearing before the select committee in October 2015 and denied knowingly spreading false talking points about the attack. Yet emails revealed during the hearing suggest Clinton told her daughter the Benghazi compound was overrun by terrorists before she ever addressed the public about the controversial YouTube clip.
And finally we have her email scandal where she used her private email and a privately set up email server to send and receive top secret and classified communication which is in violation of Federal Laws. She has never released her speeches given before Goldman Sachs and others for hundreds of thousands of dollars. Then there is the continued cover up of the Clinton Foundation which has received millions of dollars offshore from foreign corporations, countries, and individuals while receiving special treatment before the State Department while Hillary was Secretary of State.
Now, does anyone think the stealing, lying, and theft will stop this time if she becomes the most powerful woman in the world?
