We all know Bill Clinton lies, he has been impeached for it (something libs like to forget) and it really doesn’t come as a surprise Hillary Clinton lies – after all she has a long history of it. We have her claiming she went into Bosnia under sniper fire and that clearly wasn’t the case …
Clinton says she ‘misspoke’ about sniper fire
Clinton was responding to a question Monday from the Philadelphia Daily News’ editorial board about video footage of the event that contradicted her assertion that her group “ran with our heads down” from the plane to avoid sniper fire at the Tuzla Air Base.
But news video footage of her arrival at Tuzla shows Clinton, then the first lady, calmly walking from the rear ramp of a U.S. Air Force plane with her daughter, Chelsea, then 16, at her side. Both Clintons held their heads up and did not appear rushed.
The video shows Clinton spending several minutes talking with the group, including an 8-year-old Bosnian girl who presented her with a poem, and later greeting U.S. troops.
I think we all know that “misspoke” is political talk for I got caught lying and now I’m trying to dig out of this hole., but there is Whitewater, all of Bill’s affairs, and several other events in her life where she has been caught lying – but this time people died. (Not counting Vince Foster)
If fact here is a short list of some of her lies…
Hillary’s List of Lies
Hillary simply cannot tell the truth. Here’s her scorecard:
• Chelsea was jogging around the Trade Center on Sept. 11, 2001. (She was in bed watching it on TV.)
• Hillary was named after Sir Edmund Hillary. (She admitted she was wrong. He climbed Mt. Everest five years after her birth.)
• She was under sniper fire in Bosnia. (A girl presented her with flowers at the foot of the ramp.)
• She learned in The Wall Street Journal how to make a killing in the futures market. (It didn’t cover the market back then.)
Whoppers She Won’t Confess To
• She didn’t know about the FALN pardons.
• She didn’t know that her brothers were being paid to get pardons that Clinton granted.
• Taking the White House gifts was a clerical error.
• She didn’t know that her staff would fire the travel office staff after she told them to do so.
• She didn’t know that the Peter Paul fundraiser in Hollywood in 2000 cost $700,000 more than she reported it had.
• She opposed NAFTA at the time.
• She was instrumental in the Irish peace process.
• She urged Bill to intervene in Rwanda.
• She played a role in the ’90s economic recovery.
• The billing records showed up on their own.
• She thought Bill was innocent when the Monica scandal broke.
• She was always a Yankees fan.
• She had nothing to do with the New Square Hasidic pardons (after they voted for her 1,400-12 and she attended a meeting at the White House about the pardons).
• She negotiated for the release of refugees in Macedonia (who were released the day before she got there).
With a record like that, is it any wonder that we suspect her of being less than honest and straightforward?
This week Hillary finally after a number of fake delays and fake injuries she finally testified about Benghazi – oh she turned on the tears and feigned outrage and pointed fingers, she did everything but tell the truth…
(By the way delaying interrogation is a tactic taught to let it get cold and get you time to come up with a viable lie and appropriate indignation for being questioned – seriously do you think she was really injured?)
Outgoing Secretary of State Hillary Clinton was asked on Wednesday at a Senate hearing about the White House official story that the attack on the U.S. consulate in Benghazi sprang from spontaneous protest. Her response: “so what?”
They lied. That’s why it matters. People holding public office have a duty to tell the truth to the people they represent.
“What difference does it make [whether American's at Benghazi died from a protest or not]?” That’s what Clinton testified Wednesday before the Senate Foreign Relations Committee about the Sept. 11, 2012, attacks that killed Ambassador Chris Stevens and three other Americans.
Secretary Clinton was pressed by Senator Ron Johnson (R-Minn.) to explain why the Obama administration stood by an absurd story claiming that four Americans we’re murdered in Libya due to a spontaneous protest gone bad.
Secretary Clinton’s response?
“With all due respect, the fact is we have four dead Americans. Whether it was because of a protest or because guys outside for a walk one night decided to go kill some Americans. What difference at this point does it make?” Clinton said.
Really? The indignation card? Really? The “it doesn’t matter” card?
In 1974 Clinton was a member of the impeachment inquiry staff advising the House Committee on the Judiciary during the Watergate scandal. What difference did it make whether it was a burglary or not at that point? All the difference in the world to the American people and the only sitting U.S. president to ever be removed from office (technicality: Nixon resigned before officially being removed – the only sitting president to resign).
Picking apart her statement “Was it because of protest or because guys outside for a walk one night decide to go kill some Americans,” I don’t believe Secretary Clinton is dumb, but she must think everyone else is “guys out for a walk?” And she’s still trying to leave a seed of doubt that ‘hey, maybe it was a protest.’
Thanks for playing, but no. We know beyond a shadow of a doubt it was not a protest. An independent State Department investigation (the Pickering Report) led by Thomas Pickering, President George H.W. Bush’s U.N. ambassador, confirms that “there was no protest prior to the attacks,” contrary to administration’s position for several weeks afterward that the attacks arose from a spontaneous demonstration against a YouTube video had gotten out of hand (an extremely low budget video that was released nearly 3 months earlier).
She goes on to say “it is our job to figure what happened, and prevent it from ever happening again”
We know now that there were live video feeds. Documents released by the House Oversight Committee show that on the day of the attack (September 11) the White House situation room starts receiving emails at about 1 p.m. that the mission is under hostile surveillance and the Pentagon sends a drone with a video camera which provided real-time video to the White House, the State Department, the Pentagon, and the CIA.
We know what happened. We even know that an Embassy cable on June 25 expressed fear of rising Islamic extremism in eastern Libya around Benghazi, and noted that the black flag of Al-Qaeda “has been spotted several times flying over government buildings and training facilities.”
We know the administration received requests for additional security from the embassy and the ambassador himself as early as February. On August 2, Ambassador Stevens sent a cable requesting 11 additional body guards, noting “Host nation security support is lacking and cannot be depended on to provide a safe and secure environment for the diplomatic mission of outreach.”
These requests for additional security were repeatedly denied.
We know that they administration lied. We know President Obama repeatedly blamed the attack a Youtube movie. White House Press Secretary Jay Carney lied (both blaming violence on the Youtube video and stating the White House was not “aware of any actionable intelligence indicating that an attack on the U.S. Mission in Benghazi was planned or imminent. That report is false”). Secretary Clinton lied. UN Ambassador Susan Rice lied. The below video shows Secretary Clinton blamed the attacks on the YouTube video on September 14th.
What difference does it make? Ask Nixon. All the difference in the world. They knew the truth, lied repeatedly about it, and still try to sort-of, maybe sound like it possibly could be. The American people deserve to know the truth. We deserve better of our pubic officials and elected representatives. Character, though scoffed at sometimes, still matters. That’s why this matters.
During the hearing all Clinton did was bath in admiration from Democrats on the committee and ran out the clock with rambling and indignation on questions from Republicans – nothing was really answered in this fat dog and ugly pony show so in the words of Hamlet … “The lady doth protest too much, methinks“
Clinton and Obama dropped the ball – Obama is to caught up in being a cult leader and Hillary is to busy seeing the world on our dime and sampling every booze on the planet, they are both equally incompetent and unqualified to do that job.
