Say no to Hillary Clinton for President in 2016

Once again Hillary Clinton is running for President. And like the last time she's engaging in dirty tricks. As in
2008, she was the overwhelming favorite. T
he more we learn about her the more we realize she represents the worst of whats wrong with the two-party system.

If she is elected President, Clinton will completely turn over the government to big business and the military-industrial-complex. The establishment was hoping to coronate her. But it won't be easy since the American people despise her.

The candidate of Wall St. and Big Business

  • Is Hillary Rodham Clinton a McDonald’s Big Mac or a Chipotle burrito bowl? A can of Bud or a bottle of Blue Moon? JCPenney or J. Crew?

    As she readies her second presidential campaign, Clinton has recruited consumer marketing specialists onto her team of trusted political advisers. Their job is to help imagine Hillary 5.0 — the rebranding of a first lady turned senator turned failed presidential candidate turned secretary of state turned likely 2016 Democratic presidential nominee.

Hillary Clinton Smears a Rape Victim, Gets her Attacker off on a light sentence


She is no progressive

  • Ken Salazar, who is heading Clinton's transition team, is a former lawmaker who left government to become partner at a major law and lobbying firm. He supports TPP and believes fracking has not caused "environmental problems for anyone."
  • "Clinton snubs one of the nation's largest progressive groups "
  • Criticism of Clinton's connections to the fossil fuel industry has been mounting. Last month, author Naomi Klein rebuked the former New York senator for not taking action on climate when she was secretary of state. "I don't trust her on climate at all," Klein told Al Jazeera. "As secretary of state, when she had a huge megaphone to make this an issue, to show that she understands the connections between human security and climate, she didn't use the megaphone." (April 2016)
She is Phony Flip-Flops on the Issues
The Democratic Party is Trying to Coronate Hillary
  • Democratic National Committee Vice Chair, Congresswoman Tulsi Gabbard, says She Was Disinvited From Democratic Debate After Saying Party Should Hold More debates.
Hillary's Campaign Takes Money from the Wealthy, Powerful, and Nefarious

  • Pro-Hillary Clinton Super PAC "Priorities USA Action" has raised $110 million, and 90 percent of it is from only 33 donors. (August 2016)
  • The former secretary of state has already netted $625,703 from 316 registered lobbyists and corporate PACs — more than double the number of donors of her nearest competitor, according to an analysis by The Hill.
    The paper’s review of lobbying-disclosure forms shows Jeb Bush came in second with $444,500 from 140 lobbyists.
    Florida Sen. Marco Rubio was a distant No. 3 with $145,900 from 73 lobbyists. (August 2015)
She refuses to answer questions on the issues from a fawning press

  • "It’s been 263 days since Hillary Clinton last held a press conference. (August 24, 2016)
  • "On Friday, Hillary Clinton took questions from the press for the first time in 260 days. A number of her answers revealed why she doesn’t hold press conferences more: Her answers to both difficult and easy questions were often evasive, excessively legalistic, and frustrating to watch.

    Clinton spoke at a joint convention being held by the National Association of Black Journalists and the National Association of Hispanic Journalists. Her previous press conference was December of last year and she has faced heavy criticism from both the media and the Trump campaign for not being more accessible."

  • "Monday marked another day and another dodge for Hillary Clinton, who is increasingly coming under attack for not answering questions on the campaign trail." (May 2015)
  • Senator Bernie Sanders insisted that Hillary Rodham Clinton be more open with her positions on trade, climate change, the Keystone Pipeline, the renewal of the Patriot Act and the influence of the wealthy. (source)
  • Refuses to take a stand on the $15/hr minimum wage:
    • “The campaign is clearly going to have to come out with a position on it,” said Dean Baker, a progressive economist who met with economic advisers to Mrs. Clinton on other issues. “There is pressure on her to come up with a number.” (source)
  • For much of her career, she has remained publicly unwilling (and, former advisers say, at times even privately incapable) of differentiating between malicious, coordinated political attacks and the legitimate scouring of her record undertaken by responsible reporters. In 1996, she laid down this marker in a letter to her best friend, Diane Blair, according to recently released papers. “I’m not stupid; I know I should do more to suck up to the press, I know it confuses people when I change my hairdos,” Blair quoted Clinton as saying, after Blair suggested she “fake” a “friendly” attitude toward the media. “I know I should pretend not to have any opinions—but I’m just not going to. I’m used to winning and I intend to win on my own terms.”
Clinton has gradually learned how to fake it. But to this day she’s surrounded herself with media conspiracy theorists who remain some of her favorite confidants, urged wealthy allies to bankroll independent organizations tasked with knee-capping reporters perceived as unfriendly, withdrawn into a gilded shell when attacked and rolled her eyes at several generations of aides who suggested she reach out to journalists rather than just disdaining them. Not even being nice to her in print has been a guarantor of access; reporters likely to write positive stories have been screened as ruthlessly as perceived enemies, dismissed as time-sucking sycophants or pretend-friends.

She'll do anything to get elected

  • Hillary was the original birther
    • During the fierce primary contest [2008], Obama's campaign manager accused the Clinton team of circulating a photo of Obama dressed in traditional African garb, calling it "shameful, offensive fearmongering." According to CNN, Clinton's campaign said at the time that Obama was trying to "distract" voters with the accusation, but it did not deny circulating the photo.
    • Then there were the comments from campaign surrogate Nebraska Sen. Bob Kerrey when he announced his support for Clinton. “It’s probably not something that appeals to him, but I like the fact that his name is Barack Hussein Obama, and that his father was a Muslim and that his paternal grandmother is a Muslim,” Kerrey said.
Emailgate
  • "According to the Associated Press, State Department lawyers say they’ll have all the schedules released by December 30 of this year, but that’s more than a month after the country decides upon its next leader."
  • "Bombshell emails released by Judicial Watch on Monday show that in June 2009, two longtime Hillary Clinton friends and donors asked the then-secretary of state for help for a “major client.”

    The emails, which were not among the records that Clinton gave the State Department in Dec. 2014, show that Clinton aimed to help her two associates, Kevin O’Keefe and Kevin Conlon."

Hillary Clinton is a Liar


The Clinton Foundation is an Illegal Money Laundering Operation

  • The "charity" is so murky that it can't even be rated by public interest groups.
  • "Hillary Clinton's closest State Department aides were closely involved in coordinating events, talking points, and projects with the Clinton Foundation, according to emails, despite ethics agreements that were intended to create a firewall between Clinton's office and her family's foundation."
  • "But Clinton’s family foundation has accepted millions of dollars directly from major fossil fuel companies — including from those that lobbied her State Department just before the agency approved a controversial pipeline delivering what environmentalists call one of the world’s dirtiest sources of energy. The Clinton Foundation did not respond to International Business Times’ request for comment."
  • "More than half of the meetings that Hillary Clinton reportedly took with people outside the government while serving as secretary of State were with Clinton Foundation donors, according to The Associated Press. "
  • USA Today: "...the only way to eliminate the odor surrounding the foundation is to wind it down and put it in mothballs..." (8-24-2016)
  • Coming on the heels of a massive national investigation launched by several state attorneys general into whether ExxonMobil intentionally deceived investors and the public over climate change, activists gathered at the National Press Club in Washington, D.C., on Thursday to release an open letter urging the Clinton Foundation to return more than $1 million it has received from the oil giant. (April 2016)
  • "The Clinton Foundation will redo a number of tax returns and audit others after Reuters found that it had inadequately disclosed donations from foreign government, the news service reported Thursday.

    The foundation had claimed that it received no foreign donations from 2010 to 2013, but Reuters reported that, “several foreign governments continued to give tens of millions of dollars toward the foundation’s work on climate change and economic development through this three-year period.”While those donors had been listed in other ways, the donations had not been disclosed to the Internal Revenue Service."

  • "A senior executive at the Clinton Foundation left almost 150 telephone messages for Hillary Clinton’s top aide at the State Department within a two-year time frame, according to previously unpublished documents obtained by Fox News."
  • "...the International Business Times reported that Clinton Foundation donors received weapons deals from the State Department while Hillary was secretary of state. According to the International Business times, a consortium of American defense contractors led by Boeing would deliver $29 billion worth of advanced fighter jets to the United States' oil-rich ally in the Middle East, and that's Saudi Arabia." (May 2015)
  • A new batch of emails released on Tuesday appear to show that Hillary Clinton and her aides at the State Department sought to intervene on two occasions on behalf of donors to her philanthropic efforts and her 2008 campaign.

    The emails, revealed by the conservative watchdog group Judicial Watch, suggest that aides sought to connect a prominent Clinton Foundation donor with a U.S. ambassador, and in another instance assisted an associate of a 2008 campaign donor in finding a position at the State Department.

  • Hillary Clinton is a master of crony capitalism. Between 2009 and 2013, Russians assumed control over 20 percent of America’s uranium production by taking over the company Uranium One. Such a large merger required State Department confirmation, but luckily Uranium One’s chairman had contributed $2.36 million to the Clinton Foundation, and a Russian investment bank paid former president Bill Clinton $500,000 for a speech. Following these contributions, the State Department accepted the merger, as reported by the New York Times. (source)
  • "The former secretary of state has struggled with some Hillary Clinton coronationrecent bad headlines over large donations given to the foundation by foreign governments in the past two years, and the $200 million-plus the organization has raised since 2013, ahead of her anticipated White House campaign....The Wall Street Journal last week reported the foundation had received money in 2014 from the United Arab Emirates, Saudi Arabia, Oman and others. The Washington Post reported the charity has raised nearly $2 billion since the former president started it in 2001. About one-third of its donations of $1 million or more come from foreign governments or non-U.S. entities, the newspaper found." (source)
She and Bill are Corrupt
  • The decision for Blankfein to invest in Hillary Clinton’s son-in-law’s company is just one of many ways Goldman Sachs has used its wealth to forge a tight bond with the Clinton family. The company paid Hillary Clinton $675,000 in personal speaking fees, paid Bill Clinton $1,550,000 in personal speaking fees, and donated between $250,000 and $500,000 to the Clinton Foundation. At a time when Goldman Sachs directly lobbied Hillary Clinton’s State Department, the company routinely partnered with the Clinton Foundation for events, even convening a donor meeting for the foundation at the Goldman Sachs headquarters in Manhattan.

  • Bill's Debauchery
    • Yet there is always the dark side of Bill Clinton’s years in office — his affair with Monica Lewinsky and the accusations of sexual assault and harassment that trailed him over the past quarter-century. Whenever Hillary Clinton criticizes Republicans for an ideological “war on women,” critics point to Bill Clinton’s even more personal “war on women.”
      It’s an uncomfortable spot for liberals and feminists. To support Hillary Clinton, they must continue the old argument that issues and policy matter more than her husband’s behavior. And besides, they say, it’s Hillary Clinton, not her husband, who is running for president. She’s not responsible for his actions. But she played a role in backing them up. It’s complicated. Marital issues can be rationalized as personal, yet the Clintons’ political marriage makes them fair game. (source)
