© 2016 Jim Spence - Hillary Clinton is sinking in the polls. Amazingly she still seems to be ahead. I guess the American public is discouraged because she KEEPS lying. Let's continue the catalog of her lies that goes back......way back.
Any discussion that includes the long list of lies told by Hillary Clinton would not be complete without the curious events surrounding the death of Vince Foster. Foster was deputy White House counsel and Hillary’s friend and law partner. Foster was also involved in both the Travelgate and Whitewater scandals. In 1993, Foster was found dead in a park with a fatal gunshot wound to his mouth. The word was Hillary Clinton verbally abused him in a disgraceful way right before he took his own life. The wound was found to be self-inflicted but.......the investigation into his death was a scandal itself. Even the pro-Clinton Washington Post reported that federal investigators were not allowed to enter Foster’s office after his death, but that get this……“White House aides entered Foster’s office shortly after his death, giving rise to speculation that files were removed from his office.” Those aides were Hillary’s and none other than her assistants Maggie Williams and Patsy Thomasson, along with Craig Livingston who was Hillary’s director of White House security. These three people removed armloads of files and loose-leaf binders from Foster's home. When confronted with this obvious obstruction of justice accusation Hillary said she had no knowledge of the illegal document raid her aides conducted during the investigation. It is simply how amazing how much she does not know about what her aides are told to do. Or how much she lies.
The Clintons are always looking ahead to the next scam. Consider the fact that before Bill Clinton left the White House in 2001, he granted numerous pardons including one to convicted tax evader Marc Rich. Coincidentally Rich’s wife made significant contributions to Hillary’s 2000 Senate campaign. According to the Associated Press, Rich had been, “indicted by a U.S. federal grand jury on more than 50 counts of fraud, racketeering, trading with Iran during the U.S. Embassy hostage crisis and evading more than $48 million in income taxes – crimes that could have earned him more than 300 years in prison.” Rich became a fugitive in Switzerland in 1983 after his indictment and remained on the FBI’s Most Wanted List………..until President Clinton pardoned him. Hillary was quite indignant when she said the contributions to her senate campaign from the wife of a guy on the FBI's Ten Most Wanted List, had nothing to do with the pardon of that fugitive. The FBI was furious just as they were when their chief let Hillary off the hook for her criminal acts associated with classified materials earlier this year.
In March 1994, it was revealed Hillary – with no previous experience – had made massive profits from cattle futures trading between 1978 and 1979, when Bill Clinton’s salary as Arkansas attorney general had been modest. She made $99,537 in profit on a $1,000 investment (a 9,987 percent profit) in just nine months because of a highly placed connection at Tyson Foods, which was the largest employer in Arkansas and a big Clinton donor. Even the pro-Clinton New York Times said, “During Mr. Clinton’s tenure as Governor, Tyson benefited from several state decisions, including favorable environmental rulings, $9 million in state loans, and the placement of company executives on important state boards. … the commodities trades were the most successful investment the Clintons ever made. The nearly $100,000 profit enabled them to buy a house, invest in securities and real estate and provide a nest egg for their daughter, Chelsea.” When asked by reporters how she pulled it off Hillary lied through her teeth. She said she made the astonishingly successful trade because she read the Wall Street Journal not because it was a structured bribe that used Tyson's commodities trading hedge operations as cover.
On Sept. 11, 2012, while Hillary was secretary of state, Islamic militants attacked a U.S. special mission in Benghazi, Libya, and murdered U.S. Ambassador J. Christopher Stevens and U.S. Foreign Service Information Management officer Sean Smith. Two CIA contractors, Tyrone Woods and Glen Doherty, were also killed. In the months leading up to the attack, Hillary’s State Department cut security in Libya. Hillary's State Department not only refused to honor repeated requests for additional security, it actually reduced security in Libya. Hillary herself signed waivers that allowed the facility to be legally occupied. Her signature was required because the facility did not meet the minimum official security standards set by the State Department. The waiver legally allowed the CIA annex to be housed in a location too far away from the U.S. special mission. Hillary’s own emails show she knew while the attack was under way that it was being carried out by terrorists. Documents also show that then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and other senior Obama officials were given accurate reports within hours of the attack. Hillary then went before the American people and told a horrific lie when she blamed the attack on “rage and violence over an awful Internet video.” These preposterous lies were repeated by Hillary during a solemn ceremony at Andrews Air Force as the battered remains of the four Americans were returned to the U.S. She even lies at the funerals of her associates. It is like a reflex.
Of course all of these scams and scandals occurred during Hillary’s younger days. These days the things that Hillary is lying about have more to do with the problems people her age sometimes encounter with their health. This year Hillary has conveniently used previous concussions she received when she inexplicably fell down, to explain why she cannot remember important details of the scams she has been involved in. And lately she has chosen to lie about her overall health. Having been caught on tape falling all over herself on a beautiful day in New York last weekend, Hillary told a series of whoppers about the reasons why she can’t seem to stand up. Then, supposedly when those lies did not wash, Hillary pretended to come clean with a pneumonia explanation, when it was clear her previous lies did not do the trick. Wondering if she is lying is like wondering if she is breathing.
There are a few mysteries here. Let's start with why CNN, ABC, NBC, CBS, NPR, and MSNBC, along with the major newspapers around the country adore this liar? Second, how can anyone that two thirds of America knows to be a liar stay ahead in the polls?
Finally, there is this story, the story of Colin Powell. Powell of course, is the black American that the terrible racist George W, Bush promoted to the top of his military, right before Powell was appointed as Secretary of State. Powell warned Hillary about using a private server for her communications. Not only did Hillary deliberately ignore Powell, she tried to make it look like he told her it was OK. Powell, like William Safire decades ago hit the nail on the head with her. He said she tries to use everyone and screws up everything she touches. Apparently Hillary there is one thing Hillary cannot screw up. She has not screwed up ALL of the Democrats who will ignore her duplicitous ways and vote for her. Democrats know or should know about all of these scams and many others too numerous to chronicle here. Democrats willingly embrace this liar.
