Why Hillary Clinton´s past is
fair game in presidential race

Washington Examiner [DC], by Byron York

Original Article

Posted By:LittleHoodedMonk, 2/18/2014 1:30:52 AM

There´s a debate going on about Hillary Clinton´s past. If she runs for president in 2016, should Republicans reach back to the scandals of her years as First Lady? Or should they focus on more recent times, especially her tenure as Secretary of State, to build a case against her? The GOP doesn´t have to choose. Of course Clinton´s recent experiences are relevant to a presidential run. But so are her actions in the 90s, the 80s and even the 70s. It´s not ancient history; it reveals something about who Clinton was and still is. And re-examining her past is entirely consistent with practices in recent campaigns. In the 2012 presidential race,

Comments:
The only reason this discussion is going on "now" is that PIAPS wants the LSM to get this off their list of her failures as a person and politician. By doing so, the LSM will claim that this is old news, or depending on how hard Hillary has the screws on them, ignore it and blame the GOP.

According to GOP leadership, her past is NOT fair game. It is off limits and to mention it would be counter productive.

Great summary of Hilary´s criminal past and how she skated at every turn.
Benghazi is her defining moment. The Ghosts of Benghazi hover over Banquos feast.
York summarraizes the fraud that is Hillary.
The younger voters need to know about Lady Macbeth and her sexual predator husband.
Now that Bill is older -his bent Peyronie member and sexual assaults are especially repulsive.
The good economy during the 90s was in spite of Bill and Hillarycare-they have Newt Gingrich and John Kasich to thank for Balenced Budgets!
Americans MUST stand p to these Looters.

That cattle futures story? Totally false.

At that time, the WSJ didn´t provide futures prices or information. Hillary physically could NOT have done her picking from the Journal. Nor could anyone else.

#2 - Spot on. The Republican Party establishment will not allow Hillary!´s past or low character traits to be exposed any more than they allowed the vetting of Obama, despite the wild speculations and lies disseminated by the commie old media about GOP candidates.

Why?

It is becoming increasingly obvious that it is because the Republican old guard loves gigantic government and the perks that come with it. They are more than happy to continue as the junior partners in the Cartel Party. They will pretend that their concern is about the botched impeachment of Bill. They will blame the evil “conservatives” for making them appear “mean spirited” in the public eye. IIRC, not one senator from either party bothered to look at the House evidence against the perjurer-in-chief so they could vote against impeachment with a “clear conscience”. The failed impeachment of Clinton is yet another legacy of the Grand Old Progressives.

Karl and Rovettes will continue to defend the feckless "Stupid Party" with meaningless excuses for inaction based on numerical disadvantage, defense of the “ways things are done in Washington,” our-team verses their-team cheer leading, and guilt trips to keep the “purists” down on the plantation.

They really need to get some new material.

The Republicans don´t know how to run a Presidential election. They are recycling the same consultants who hand out the same bad advice over and over. I think a lot of them are secretly liberals.

For me, PIAPS past is very important and relevant now. The past pretty much tells us who a person is at the present time. Old addage, leopard´s spots don´t change. In addition, her past is as much relevant now, as "they" made out George Bush´s past, Romney´s past, Gingrich´s past, etc., etc. Fair game then? Fair game now.

Researchers dug around and found that Eagleton had a mental issue; GWB had a traffic ticket 40 (?) years ago; Laura Bush had had a traffic accident and someone was killed; Romney took a vacay with a dog in a cage on top of his car; Sarah - lordy, they were seriously digging through her trash to find something - anything on her. Other finds on the conservative side I´m sure I´ve forgotten about. Hilzilla´s history is much easier to dig through and there´s tons more of it. You bet your sweet bippy her past is fair game.

America turning it´s back on O´s disgusting past simply to hand a negro the presidency (eligible or not; qualified or not) was a disgrace. That he, in turn, ended up implementing his plan to punish our republic for it´s "sins" against the DRAT underclass was the to-be expected result.

Republicans will be no better able to prevent another disaster--PIAPS--from taking over from Obama than they were at keeping him out in the first place.

2016 will be 20 years since 1996. Some of the voters will not have any memory whatever of the despicable goings on in the Clinton White House.

A PIAPS presidency would be an Obama third term. That´s the reality of it.

Hillary needs the single young woman demographic on her side, and that will be tough. They are especially sensitive to sexual exploitation and won´t think it´s funny or cool that a sexual predator could be on the loose in the WH. Additionally,they have grown accustomed to having what they perceive as a cool, metrosexual (one of their own) leading the country. Hillary will come across as a crotchety, screeching old lady who can hardly be seen to represent their interests.
I don´t think women unequivocally band together in the same way that some racial groups do.

Hillary cannot be touched. The Dems and the RINOs will see to it. Rove and his ilk worship big government and high taxes. We cannot get rid of Boehner and McConnell except by starving them (no contributions) and un-electing them.

She´s a Dem - and that means the past does not matter, at this point. Not for her, or Ted "Splash" Kennedy, or Robert "Sheets" Byrd, or Barack Obama, Man of Mystery.

Republicans are another matter, even the neutered, get-along kind. For them, the ancient past matters, real and fictional, down to dog crates on cars and pubic hairs on coke cans.

That´s the lay of the land, until our side finds the nerve to refuse to play by those rules.

During most of the years that the Clinton administration was giving us an outrage a day, Lucianne.com wasn´t there. Drudge wasn´t there. Downloading information about Monica Lewinsky from the internet took hours, if your connection lasted. Rush Limbaugh, the American Spectator and National Review were about it as far as opposition information.

It´s now 2014. This time, the public refuses to just "move on" from Benghazi. Perhaps it is reasonable to believe that the little blue dress has not finished influencing the American political scene.

Did anyone catch Lou Dobbs last night? He had as guests Ed Rollins and a woman form one of the Tea Party groups discussing the 2016 campaign and waht can or cannot be said about Hillary, etc. Lou was pretty harsh on the Tea Party woman because some of thier candidates didn´t do well in 2010. But then again, the RNC sanctioned candidate for Prez wasn´t successful either. It would appear that a male candidate who says something stupid about rape is much worse than the supposedly most intelligent woman with all those years of public service always saying: I don´t recall, I don´t remember, What difference, at this point, does it make?

The establishment Republicans are right now a cautious Democrat lite party who must time their most controversial actions, like another amnesty very carefully, and certainly not pass anything like that which is bound to hand the liberal Democrats tens of millions of new foreign born voters in the years ahead during the run up to an election, which would turn off a good percentage of their thought to be reliable conservative voters. Any of this sound familiar to what is going on now?

From cheating (payoffs) in second campaign in Arkansas it´s been downhill ever since.

Delay, Deny and Destroy.

Talking about Hillary´s involvement in the smearing of Bill´s women is fair game. Dragging the sins of Bill into it is pointless. Trying to say that Hillary should have known sounds dumb. Don´t even mention Bill´s name, ever. Focus entirely on Hillary and ask why she chose to smear and malign women who "her husband" (do not say Bill´s name) harassed? The Dems will be begging the GOP to talk about Bill, as he is good PR for Hillary. He should only be known as "the husband."

Yes, #26, and the origin of moveon-dot-org.

Yes, #11, she did write her Wellesley thesis on Alinsky, and as far as i know, it is still kept firmly locked away. one justly wonders what´s in that work product...

There are of course new voters. But there are also old voters, old, uninformed, incurious, shallow thinking voters. Also there are old voters who simply don´t remember.

The uninformed of any age are easy prey for the propaganda masters who are --it is sad to say-- VERY effective in their messaging.

Do we expect the late-night comedy shows which are "news" sources for the young and dumb will excoriate her like they do every Republican, every Conservative?

#7 I totally agree.

We need another Lee Atwater type of leader running things in the GOP.

Right now, Kurt Gowdy is a breath of fresh air and has somewhat assumed the role of fearless leader.

What we don´t need are a bunch of pansies trying to get face time and saying nothing. The GOP needs to learn how to attack and win a point, and make sure they get the last word. When liberals make false and untrue statements, it´s been the norm that the Republican counterpart usually sits there like a doofus rather than refute the statement. Instead they should say. Can you back that statement up with facts? Can you prove that accusation? Do you have names, dates and times regarding that? Checkmate! They can´t. The Dems and their cohorts are all liars and are proud of it.

Why the GOP doesn´t train their people better is something I´ve never understood. The Dems make sure their minions have talking points everyday included with their cup of Kool Aid.

Yes, Hillary, past and present, is fair game and anyone who thinks otherwise should get out of politics.

Tonight Megyn Kelly is doing an interview with Kathleen Willey. I have no doubt it will be good.

Mild mannered Byron York, has the timidity to ask whether we should look into the past of evil Evita if she runs for president.
He recites a few not shocking incidents, then in a last paragraph, states, "Finally, there is Monica Lewinsky",
like that´s all there is.
Finally, schminally, there were dozens of other women,
Monica being the first one widely outed. And a boatload
of scams that would take HOURS to retell in detail, along with the giant Bill and Hilary co president Body Count List, that is as appalling and totally shocking as war time genocide, that includes burning to death a large family of adults and children in Waco, Texas.
And that is just for starters on a long, chilling list of reckless law breakings far greater than Bonnie & Clyde.

Byron York, of Fox TV, may also be on the notorious bill and Hilary Clinton Foundation payroll !

I say go back even further. From Hillary´s 1969 commencement address at Wellesley...

"Many of the issues that I´ve mentioned -- those of sharing power and responsibility, those of assuming power and responsibility have been general concerns on campuses throughout the world. But underlying those concerns there is a theme, a theme which is so trite and so old because the words are so familiar. It talks about integrity and trust and respect."

It doesn´t surprise me that she and the rest of the left would rather not talk about her past but it is absolutely relevant and necessary. The past behavior of a person reflects on their character, honesty, trustworthiness, their potential for leadership positions and their honor. Of course they´d rather not talk about her past . . . neither would I if I were she.

Everytime personal insults are tossed around she she wins and from the photo I saw on another site yesterday they are not needed. She can´t stand in front of the mirror on the wall without showing what she has become.
It´s to bad the GOP haters on this thread don´t form a party and try to go it alone instead of sitting on their voting hands.

Ex-death row inmate Anthony Porter
angry, feels ‘cheated’ out of money
Sun-Times [Chicago, IL], by Frank Main    Original Article
Posted By: LittleHoodedMonk- 4/20/2014 1:27:51 PM     Post Reply
Anthony Porter is angry. He’s come within hours of being executed after he was convicted of killing two people. He was freed from Death Row after another man, Alstory Simon, confessed to the murders. He got a pardon, but he didn’t get a dime when he sued the city and the cops for framing him. And now, there’s a serious push to strip away what little Porter has left: his claim of innocence. Attorneys pushing for Simon’s release from prison say the justice system got it right the first time — that the evidence points to Porter all along in the notorious double murder in 1982 at a South Side park.

Average credit card interest
up to shocking 21%

Credit card companies know there’s no free lunch, but they’re letting more customers get a taste as an enticement by gouging their existing card members. The average credit card interest rate for people with fair credit has hit a shocking 21 percent, up more than 2 percent from only a year ago, according to industry group CardHub. Credit card companies, which attract new customers with zero percent teaser rates and more rewards, have raised rates while their costs remain historically low, industry observers say. “Credit card interest rates were higher across the board during the first three months of 2014 relative to the same period last year,”

Before taxpayers lost $529 million on solar energy company Solyndra and $10.5 billion on GM, the US government had a long history of backing the wrong horse. Many of the great industries in US history — from the fur trade to steamships, railroads, chemicals and airplanes — failed in the hands of government but succeeded thanks to private entrepreneurs. A closer reading of American history may have avoided the colossal mistake of President Obama’s $700 billion stimulus bill. The government has learned over and over again that when it comes to business, it’s a terrible boss. Here are a few examples to keep in mind the next time you

Kate´s hair had been coiffed underneath her hat in an elegant half up, half down style. Prime Minister Tony Abbott and wife Margie arrived first, the Duke and Duchess were greeted on the road by the Archbishop of Sydney, Dr Glenn Davies and Reverend Phillip Jensen.

President Obama on Friday signed into law a bill authored by Texas Republican Sen. Ted Cruz that would bar an Iranian diplomat from entering the United States, but immediately issued a statement saying he won´t enforce it. Obama decided to treat the law as mere advice. "Acts of espionage and terrorism against the United States and our allies are unquestionably problems of the utmost gravity, and I share the Congress´s concern that individuals who have engaged in such activity may use the cover of diplomacy to gain access to our Nation," Obama said in his signing statement. "Nevertheless, as President [George H.W.] Bush also observed,

Jeb Bush’s recent musings on a possible presidential run—and his comments on immigration, rankling many in the Republican grassroots—sparked a familiar clash. Jeb, the establishment’s preferred candidate, some said, could neutralize the fiery GOP base in 2016. Conservatives shot back that Jeb would depress conservative turnout, and his last name would play poorly with the general electorate. It’s a constant tension: The base is unhappy with the establishment, and vice versa. But this year, the marriage of convenience between the grassroots of the party and its donor class has emerged so battered from eight years of

Tehran, Iran - Iran will redesign its Arak heavy water reactor to greatly limit the amount of plutonium it can make, the country´s vice president said Saturday, marking a major concession from the Islamic Republic in negotiations with world powers over its contested nuclear program. The comments by Vice President Ali Akbar Salehi comes as the talks face an informal July 20 deadline to hammer out a final deal to limit Iran´s ability to build nuclear arms in exchange for ending the crippling economic sanctions it faces. Iranian state television quoted Salehi, who heads the Atomic Energy Organization of Iran, as saying that Iran has

Washington - As President Barack Obama travels through Asia this coming week, he will find a region that’s warily watching the crisis in Ukraine through the prism of its own territorial tensions with China. Each of the four countries on Obama’s itinerary — Japan, South Korea, Malaysia and the Philippines — has a dispute with Beijing over islands in the South and East China Seas. (Snip) Administration officials, including Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel, have taken a tougher line on the territorial issues in recent weeks, sternly warning China against the use of military force and noting that the U.S. has not formally taken sides on the question

Doctors can be hard people to shock, but a recent case left one surgeon flabbergasted. A 63-year-old man came to hospital complaining of vomiting and stomach pain. He claimed he´d swallowed the lid of a bottle in an act of anger during a marital dispute, and was given an x-ray. Doctors knew what they were seeing was no bottle cap, but it was not until they operated on the man that the source of his complaint was revealed. Twelve bars of gold weighing nearly 400g were found in the man´s stomach and removed. The BBC reports that police and customs authorities had questioned the businessman and confiscated the gold.

Sydney - A strong 6.6-magnitude earthquake struck off Papua New Guinea´s Bougainville Island on Saturday but there was no risk of a widespread tsunami, seismologists said. The quake, scaled back from an initial reported magnitude of 6.9, hit at 0104 GMT and was centred 59 kilometres (36 miles) southwest of the town of Panguna on Bougainville at a depth of 24 kilometres, the US Geological Survey said. In its initial estimate the USGS said there was a low likelihood of casualties and damage. According to the Hawaii-based Pacific Tsunami Warning Center there was no threat of a destructive widespread tsunami based on historical data.

Doha, Qatar - The Muslim Brotherhood, the Islamic political organization that has been defanged in almost every area where it was once a key player, has driven a deep rift between the Gulf´s two most powerful players. Months of tension between Qatar and its neighbors came to a head last month when Saudi Arabia, Bahrain, and the United Arab Emirates (UAE) withdrew their ambassadors. Although the regional Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) announced yesterday that the parties had resolved their disagreement, that will likely remain a surface-level fix unless Qatar abandons its support of the Muslim Brotherhood – something it

The White House is going to war with another fox — and this time, it’s personal. The Wall Street Journal reports that a red fox has been causing chaos around the White House, tripping security alarms, digging up Michelle’s garden and distracting the president from his duties. The Secret Service won’t give any details about how often the fox trips the White House’s obviously sophisticated security alarms, but rest assured, officials say, they’re watching. President Obama was apparently “stunned” to see the fox roaming freely down the oft-photographed White House colonnade, home to the world’s shortest, but most dramatic, outdoor strolls.

For Hillary Clinton, having her own baby grandchild to kiss on the campaign trail, could be one of the biggest boosts to her possible presidential election campaign. Although the former Secretary of State and First Lady has not said if she will run in 2016, the arrival of her first grandchild will soften her image, analysts have said. While Chelsea only revealed her pregnancy on Thursday, supporters of her mother have already started cooing over a possible baby in the White House. With the Clintons having a near-royal status in the U.S., the announcement of a new arrival due this fall has sent

GREENSBORO, Ga. — Golf holes the size of pizzas. Soccer balls on the back nine. A mulligan on every hole. These are some of the measures — some would say gimmicks — that golf courses across the country have experimented with to stop people from quitting the game. Golf has always reveled in its standards and rich tradition. But increasingly a victim of its own image and hidebound ways, golf has lost five million players in the last decade, according to the National Golf Foundation, with 20 percent of the existing 25 million golfers apt to quit in the next few years. People under 35 have especially spurned the game, saying it takes too

Hi, everybody. For millions of Americans, this time of year holds great meaning. Earlier this week, we hosted a Passover Seder at the White House, and joined Jewish families around the world in their re-tellings of the story of the Exodus and the victory of faith over oppression. And this Sunday, Michelle, Malia, Sasha, and I will join our fellow Christians around the world in celebrating the Resurrection of Christ, the salvation he offered the world, and the hope that comes with the Easter season. These holy days have their roots in miracles that took place long ago. And yet, they still inspire us, guide us, and strengthen us today. They remind us of our

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid said Thursday that a family of dissident ranchers and their supporters in his home state of Nevada are ´domestic terrorists,´ citing this week´s standoff with the federal government´s Bureau of Land Management. Cliven Bundy has refused to pay grazing fees for land where his hundreds of cattle roam every day. The land is owned by the federal government, which says he owes more than $1 million. Bundy, however, insists that since his family has been using the land since the 1870s, Uncle Sam can´t collect the grazing fees. A tense standoff developed this week after

That was quite a victory dance President Obama did Thursday while claiming Obamacare is “working” because eight million people have now supposedly signed up for the health care program. He even indulged in some less-than-subtle mockery of Republicans - and by extension the majority of Americans who have disapproved of Obamacare since before it became law. "The repeal debate is and should be over,” Obama said, taking a dig at Republicans who are “going through, you know, the stages of grief … anger and denial and all that stuff …” But a president who is viewed by most Americans as less

WASHINGTON--Rushing to an afternoon vote last month, Sen. Ted Cruz hopped the underground tram to the U.S. Capitol from his office across the street. The Texan planted his black ostrich cowboy boots in the middle of the small subway car without getting so much as a nod from the other senators--Republican or Democrat--amiably chatting or huddled in their seats. Mr. Cruz finds himself standing alone a lot these days. His response to the cold shoulders: "The establishment despised Ronald Reagan" before he became president, "but the people loved him." For the 43-year-old Republican, the Reagan name illuminates his political life´s

Imagine a vendor on the National Mall, selling burgers and dogs, who hasn’t paid his rent in 20 years. He refuses to recognize his landlord, the National Park Service, as a legitimate authority. Every court has ruled against him, and fines have piled up. What’s more, the effluents from his food cart are having a detrimental effect on the spring grass in the capital. Would an armed posse come to his defense, aiming their guns at the park police? Would the lawbreaker get prime airtime on Fox News, breathless updates in the Drudge Report, a sympathetic ear from Tea Party Republicans?

In a speech earlier this week, Lisa O. Monaco, President Barack Obama’s assistant for homeland security and counterterrorism, insisted that American parents must be vigilant because their “confrontational” children could be on the verge of becoming terrorists. Monaco’s full, prepared text is available here. She presented the speech, entitled “Countering Violent Extremism and the Power of Community,” at Harvard University’s Kennedy School of Government on April 15. Monaco began her remarks by eloquently describing the lives tragically lost last year during the Boston Marathon bombings. Interestingly, the Harvard grad failed to mention the religion or the motive of brothers Dzhokhar and Tamerlan

Conservative columnist Ann Coulter — who used her talk show platform in the last presidential election cycle to campaign hard for former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney — has taken up the mantra once again, calling on Republicans to give the failed White House bidder another shot in 2016. She made the suggestion during a discussion on Sean Hannity’s radio show while speaking of her new book, “Never Trust a Liberal Over 3-Especially a Republican.” Ms. Coulter also addressed the question of Mr. Romney’s shortcomings by saying that his 2012 loss wasn’t entirely his fault. “I think too much blame, not only in this

Prominent Washington correspondents are accusing President Obama and his aides of knowingly stretching the truth on issues like the so-called women´s pay gap just to create controversy and keep issues -- and the president -- relevant. Washington Post columnist Ruth Marcus kicked off the attack last week when she blasted as “demagoguery” the administration´s tactics during the pay gap debate. “The level of hyperbole -- actually, of demagoguery -- that Democrats have engaged in here is revolting,” she wrote. CBS White House Correspondent Major Garrett then weighed in this week in his National Journal
