H-I-L-L-A-R-Y. In researching my various books, I have accumulated a damning bill of particulars against Hillary Clinton, the most seriously flawed candidate any major party will have nominated for president in the history of the republic.
What follows are seven good reasons to vote for the Republican candidate in November, no matter how much you dislike the candidate and/or the party that nominated him.
The blizzard of lies
Within a year of her husband’s election to the presidency, Hillary had involved herself in any number of misadventures including the commodity trading scandal, the obstruction of justice in the investigation of Vince Foster’s death, the Whitewater affair and two grubby in-house scandals known as “Travelgate” and “Filegate.”
In a 1996 New York Times op-ed titled “Blizzard of Lies,” the usually restrained William Safire famously called Hillary “a congenital liar,” and she was just warming up.
In a desperate attempt to save Bill’s candidacy for president in 1992, the Clintons agreed to be interviewed by Steve Kroft on CBS’ “60 Minutes.”
“We reached out to them,” said Hillary of the women rumored to have dallied with or been assaulted by her husband. “I met with two of them to reassure them they were friends of ours.”
Among the women “reached out” to was Sally Perdue, a former Miss Arkansas and Clinton paramour. Perdue was told by a paid Clinton investigator that “people in high places … wanted me to know that keeping my mouth shut would be worthwhile.”
“Worthwhile” meant a GS-11 or better job with the federal government. If she talked to the media, however, “He couldn’t guarantee what would happen to my pretty little legs.”
In early December 1994, after the drubbing of Democrats in November, Hillary summoned political consultant Dick Morris to a secret meeting at the White House. In ensuing weeks, she, Bill and Morris laid out the plan to hold the White House. It would take lots of cash.
The Clintons were preparing to launch what Sen. Fred Thompson would call “the most corrupt political campaign in modern history,” funded in no small part by “millions of dollars … in illegal contributions, much of it from foreign sources.”
According to the Thompson report, the Clintons “demeaned the offices of the president and vice president, took advantage of minority groups, pulled down all the barriers that would normally be in place to keep out illegal contributions, pressured policymakers and left themselves open to strong suspicion that they were selling not only access to high-ranking officials, but policy as well.”
The exploitation of Ron Brown
For all her alleged affection for African-Americans, Hillary exploited them as need be, like the 27 blacks killed – quietly – at Waco by her handpicked DOJ honchos.
None was more thoroughly exploited than the deeply compromised Commerce Secretary Ron Brown, the most prominent African-American in the Clinton Cabinet. In a political season as desperate as 1995-1996, the Clintons approved any number of deals with China and Indonesia that would have endangered their re-election if exposed. Brown was the “bagman” on many of them.
Sick of being “a mother-f–-ing tour guide for Hillary Clinton,” Brown threatened to expose the Clintons. They promptly sent him to Croatia to cut a deal between the neo-fascists who ran the country and the Enron Corporation. Brown never came back.
In his widely reviewed 2015 book, “Clinton Cash,” Peter Schweizer covered Hillary’s years from 2001 to 2012, during which the Clintons’ income was at least $136.5 million. Writes Schweizer, “During Hillary’s years of public service, the Clintons have conducted or facilitated hundreds of large transactions” with foreign governments and individuals. “Some of these transactions have put millions in their own pockets.”
About 10 p.m. on the night of Sept. 11, 2012, Hillary, now secretary of state, released a memo titled, “Statement on the Attack in Benghazi.” This statement, published while Americans were still fighting for their lives, was a lie from beginning to end.
“Some have sought to justify this vicious behavior as a response to inflammatory material posted on the Internet,” said Clinton. “The United States deplores any intentional effort to denigrate the religious beliefs of others. Our commitment to religious tolerance goes back to the very beginning of our nation.”
At the time, even Chelsea knew the video story was pure bull. The following day, even more specifically, Hillary emailed the Egyptian prime minister, “We know the attack in Libya had nothing to do with the film. It was a planned attack, not a protest.”
Jack Cashill’s latest book illustrates how the neo-Puritan progressive movement came to mimic a religion in its structure but not at all in its spirit – order “Scarlet Letters: The Ever-Increasing Intolerance of the Cult of Liberalism”
The imprisonment of Nakoula
Of all the candidates, Hillary represents the greatest threat to constitutional liberty. As at least one video producer can attest, there is nothing theoretical about her abuses.
On Sept. 14, 2012, in separate conversations, Clinton told at least four grieving family members – from three different families – the opposite of what she had told the Egyptian prime minister, namely that an online anti-Islam video provoked a mob to attack the Benghazi consulate.
“We are going to have the filmmaker arrested who was responsible for the death of your son,” Hillary told Charles Woods, the father of Navy SEAL hero Ty Woods.
As good as her word, she and her colleagues pursued video producer Nakoula Bassely Nakoula, an American citizen, more vigorously than they did the Benghazi attackers. Nakoula spent the next year in federal custody.
Occasionally, alas, Hillary does tell the truth.
