3 reasons for not choosing Hillary, Clinton another Obama, Constant failure, Scandal prone, Foundation raised $2 billion little has gone to helping poor people, Vince Foster death
“The Clintons created the Clinton Foundation, a charitable organization to do good deeds around the world. The foundation had raised almost $2 billion by the end of 2014, according to foundation officials over the years. But, remarkably, little of that has gone to helping poor people. Much of the fund has been used to pay salaries and the transportation expenses of employees.”…Diana Furchtgott-Roth
“There has been a very active coverup by the FBI and the Justice Department. It’s very unlikely that he committed suicide. I’ve never written that he was murdered, but it’s hard to see it otherwise,”…Ambrose Evans-Pritchard, Sunday Telegraph, on Vince Foster death
“If ever a time should come, when vain and aspiring men shall possess the highest seats in Government, our country will stand in need of its experienced patroits to prevent its ruin”…Samuel Adams, 1776
The fact that the Democrats would even consider Hillary Clinton for president lends credence to this statement:
“the Democratic Party overlooked the ethical red flags and made a pact with Mr. Clinton that was the equivalent of a pact with the devil. And he delivered. With Mr. Clinton at the controls, the party won the White House twice. But in the process it lost its bearings and maybe even its soul.”…Bob Herbert, NY Times February 26, 2001

“Opinion: 3 reasons Democrats should find someone other than Hillary”
“Clinton should not be the Democrat nominee for president for at least three reasons. She fails to articulate an improvement on President Obama’s domestic- and foreign-policy agenda. She did a poor job as a public servant, including as secretary of state. Her Clinton Foundation is facing ethical questions more serious than those that resulted in the conviction of former Virginia Gov. Bob McDonnell.”
“Clinton Would Be Another Obama. While Obama has retained a reservoir of personal popularity, his policies have not. From the environment to health care, from defense to law enforcement, Obama’s policies are not popular with the American public.
To succeed in the general election, the Democratic nominee should be able to articulate how new ideas can improve on unpopular policies of the Obama administration. So far, Clinton has not repudiated any of Obama’s policies. Reasonable voters would conclude that a Clinton presidency would be more of the same.”
“Obama’s policy failures are not merely matters of public perception, but matters of economic reality as measured by his own administration. President Obama’s policies have resulted in slow economic growth and a chaotic web of foreign policy. We all know the data. The economy is growing at just over 2%. The first quarter of 2015 will likely show a shrinkage in gross domestic product. The unemployment rate is at a low 5.5% because millions of prime-age workers have left the labor force, leaving participation rates at 1978 levels. New employment data will be released on Friday that will indicate how the economy performed in April, the first month of the second quarter.
Young Americans, often known as millennials, are bearing the brunt of the stagnant economy. Youth unemployment, at 10.5%, is more than twice the unemployment rate of those age 25 and up, at 4.4%. If Clinton wants to attract large numbers of millennials, she needs to explain how her policies will be both different from Obama’s and helpful to young people. That explanation has not been forthcoming.”
“Clinton’s public career has been marked by a remarkable lack of achievement in office. While her husband occupied the White House, she headed up a failed task force on health care that was rebuked for holding private meetings. As First Lady, she careened from scandal to scandal: Travelgate, Whitewater and the suicide of Vince Foster. President Bill Clinton was tarred by his affair with Monica Lewinsky, impeachment and the series of pardons he gave to the politically well-connected as the Clintons left the White House.
While her husband was still in the White House, Clinton was elected senator from New York, a state where she had never lived or worked. In the U.S. Senate, she had an unmemorable career.”
“In 2009, President Obama magnanimously nominated Clinton to be secretary of state. Four years later, America’s stature in the world was much diminished. Clinton failed to adequately answer questions about the death of Ambassador J. Christopher Stevens in Benghazi in September 2012, two months before the presidential election. She did not explain the official White House line on TV that the attack on the Benghazi consulate was caused by a video. Was the terrorist attack disguised in order to achieve victory in November 2012?
Clinton kept her State Department email correspondence on a private server in her home with a personal email address, even though State Department policy was to preserve official records. Although congressional committees requested copies of emails relating to Benghazi, she apparently erased the server without giving them any information.”
“Clinton Is Associated With Unending Scandals. Clinton’s exposure to scandal did not end with her term as secretary of state. It continued afterward.
The Clintons created the Clinton Foundation, a charitable organization to do good deeds around the world. The foundation had raised almost $2 billion by the end of 2014, according to foundation officials over the years. But, remarkably, little of that has gone to helping poor people. Much of the fund has been used to pay salaries and the transportation expenses of employees.
According to an analysis of 10 years of foundation donations by McClatchy, 40% of top donors are based overseas. They gave money while Clinton was secretary of state. Canadian mining executives Ian Telfer and Frank Giustra gave millions to the foundation, while the U.S. government was reviewing the sale of a uranium mine to the Russians. With Clinton on the committee, the Russians got their mine.”

“Investigative Reporters Say Clinton Being Protected”
“If you’re holding your breath waiting for special prosecutor Kenneth Starr to recommend indictments against Bill and Hillary Clinton over the Whitewater affair, go ahead and exhale.
That’s the opinion of investigative reporters Christopher Ruddy and Ambrose Evans-Pritchard, who say that the attorney appointed by the Justice Department is too much of a Washington insider to bring charges against a president. Both men spoke before an enthusiastic crowd of about 400 people at Lakeview Lounge, west of Greensburg, Tuesday evening. The evening was arranged by the Westmoreland County Republican Committee and WRRK-FM radio host Jim Quinn.
The two reporters have written extensively on the scandals of the Clinton administration, including Whitewater and the death of White House Deputy Counsel Vince Foster. Ruddy’s stories have frequently appeared in the Tribune-Review. He is a former reporter for the New York Post.
Evans-Pritchard, Washington bureau chief for the London Sunday Telegraph, is also no stranger to readers of the Tribune-Review. Last night, Ruddy, Evans-Pritchard and Quinn narrated a story about multiple coverups, witness intimidation and corrupt political and judicial systems, all aimed at protecting Clinton and his friends.
All three received standing ovations before and after they spoke. “Truth interests me,” explained Jim Shupe of Jeannette as he waited with friends for Ruddy and Evans-Pritchard to speak. Shupe and others in the capacity crowd said the truth is being revealed by a very select portion of the national news media. He said the two reporters and Quinn’s radio show “(are) a good source of information.””
“If Clinton campaign strategist James Carville continues to take on Starr, that’s proof no indictments will come and the liberal attacks will only serve to bolster Starr’s conservative support, Ruddy suggested. A key to Whitewater, Ruddy said, is the death of Foster. “The government knows this is a problem and they know the Foster death is the atomic bomb of the Whitewater case. We have basically proven there was a coverup in this case … and we can’t depend on (any government agency) to investigate it.”
Evans-Pritchard agreed. “There has been a very active coverup by the FBI and the Justice Department. It’s very unlikely that he committed suicide. I’ve never written that he was murdered, but it’s hard to see it otherwise,” he said.”
