Hillary: When I Said Businesses Didn’t Create Jobs, I Meant Businesses Create Jobs

Posted by V the K at 10:56 pm - October 27, 2014.

According to the Heiress Apparent, ““Don’t let anybody tell you that it’s corporations and businesses that create jobs” is actually “shorthand” for “Corporations and businesses create jobs.”

“Trickle down economics has failed. I short-handed this point the other day, so let me be absolutely clear about what I’ve been saying for a couple of decades,” she said. “Our economy grows when businesses and entrepreneurs create good-paying jobs here in America and workers and families are empowered to build from the bottom up and the middle out — not when we hand out tax breaks for corporations that outsource jobs or stash their profits overseas.”

Yeah, whatever, you old Communist hag.

I’m sorry. Was that uncivil?

Hillary Clinton’s Radical, Extremist Ideology

You have heard by now that, at a Democrat rally in Massachusetts, the woman Democrats wish to anoint as president in 2017 demonstrated her understanding of economics by saying this:

Don’t let anybody tell you it’s corporations and businesses create jobs.”

So, basically, any of you who have jobs in the private sector are technically unemployed according to the Democrats’ most favoritest politician. (The one who “misplaced” $6 Billion taxpayer dollars while running the Department of State, Oops.)

What you may not have heard is that statement is just one link in a rather long chain of HRC expressing her contempt for private enterprise and the free market, and supporting socialist collectivism. (Hat Tip: Oregon Muse)

1) “We’re going to take things away from you on behalf of the common good.” – Hillary Clinton 6/29/2004
2) “It’s time for a new beginning, for an end to government of the few, by the few, and for the few… And to replace it with shared responsibility, for shared prosperity.”- Hillary Clinton 5/29/2007
3) “(We)…..can’t just let business as usual go on, and that means something has to be taken away from some people.” – Hillary Clinton 6/4/2007
4) “We have to build a political consensus and that requires people to give up a little bit of their own … in order to create this common ground.” – Hillary Clinton 6/4/2007
5) “I certainly think the free-market has failed.” – Hillary Clinton 6/4/2007

In the age of Obama and Elizabeth Warren (the hard-left Democrat Senator who supports a $22-an-hour minimum wage and lied about being an American Indian so she could become an Affirmative Action hire at Harvard), the Democrat Party is gradually coming out of the closet as full-bore socialists. The State may not technically own all businesses, but given the heavy regulation and blatant targeting of companies like Gibson Guitars and regulatory attacks like Operation Choke Point against legal gun dealers … it’s become an increasingly semantic distinction. Call it ‘Regulatory Socialism.’

Monica Lewinsky Blames the Vast Right Wing Conspiracy

Monica Lewinsky — the woman true blue Democrats believe is the only woman Bill ever cheated on Hillary with — has returned from wherever Democrats have been hiding her for the last 16 years, and is sharing her wisdom with the world.

In 1998, as you can imagine, there was a media frenzy. Even though it was pre-Google, (that’s right, pre-Google). The World Wide Web (as we called it back then) was already a big part of life.

Overnight, I went from being a completely private figure to a publicly humiliated one. I was Patient Zero.

The first person to have their reputation completely destroyed worldwide via the Internet. There was no Facebook, Twitter or Instagram back then. But there were gossip, news and entertainment websites replete with comment sections and emails could be forwarded.

That’s right, it’s all the fault of the internet, Monica. And there is absolutely no one else to blame. Nope, no one at all. Absolutely no one who made any bad decisions that could have resulted in your … ahem… “reputation”… being destroyed.

Gawdam Internets, always  causing trouble for innocent women and old married dudes.

But where was Hillary in all this?

Leon Panetta, former top Clinton staffer and Obama CIA director, is out there serving the Clintons by taking shots at President Obama…errrr, excuse me, out there promoting his new book:

For Bill Clinton, history will remember that he “always kept fighting back” to get things done…“Whether it was Democrats or Republicans, you know, he found a way to be able to do some things, to be able to accomplish some things that were important.”

He makes a similar observation about Hillary Clinton, saying she would be a “great” president. “One thing about the Clintons is, they want to get it done,” he says, in words that draw an implicit contrast with Obama…

And Barack Obama’s legacy?

“We are at a point where I think the jury is still out,” Panetta says. “For the first four years, and the time I spent there, I thought he was a strong leader on security issues. … But these last two years I think he kind of lost his way.

“These last two years” – translation, since the indispensable, brilliant Hillary left – so no, nothing happening now is her fault.

But let’s get down to specifics, Mr. Panetta. How has Obama lost his way? From Politico:

Panetta’s criticisms of the Obama administration are similar to the criticisms former Defense Secretary Robert Gates laid out in his own memoir: that those inside the White House sometimes put politics first on matters of war and peace.

Panetta describes efforts to reach a deal with Iraq to allow U.S. troops to remain in the country in the runup to the December 2011 expiration of the status-of-forces agreement — a deal Obama has said he couldn’t achieve because Iraqi leaders wanted U.S. troops gone. “Privately, the various leadership factions in Iraq all confided that they wanted some U.S. forces to remain as a bulwark against sectarian violence,” Panetta writes…

“I privately and publicly advocated for a residual force that could provide training and security for Iraq’s military…But the president’s team at the White House pushed back…”

2011…isn’t that more like three years ago?

So, let’s see. Panetta, Gates, and the Joint Chiefs all pushed in 2011 for a residual U.S. force in Iraq, that would have prevented today’s crisis with ISIS. (Sorry for the rhyme.) They even did so publicly. Did Secretary of State, Hillary Clinton? Perhaps a little, but not very much. From Jennifer Rubin in June 2014:

Clinton’s failure to impress upon the president the importance of a significant force and to negotiate a deal with Iraq under whatever circumstances existed represents a key failure – one that has directly contributed to the rise of the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS) and the collapse of the Iraqi military.

So for “PBS NewsHour” Clinton tried out a new tale: “Certainly when President Obama had to make the decision about what to do, he was deciding based on what the Bush administration had already determined, because they were the ones who said troops have to be out by the end of 2011.”

This is patently untrue. The Bush team had always intended that there be a follow-up to the SOFA [Status of Forces Agreement]…The game plan for the Bush team and the Obama team was to conclude a deal [to leave a residual force]; Clinton and her boss failed to do so.

For Hillary to claim that the Bushies planned on having all troops out by 2011 is itself a potshot at Obama. If true, it would mean that Obama hardly did anything to “end the war” – he only followed a Bush plan.

But what does all of this add up to? Well, Clinton Central has evidently decided that the way to get elected in 2016 is:

  1. Keep playing the “Blame Bush” card when possible. And if it isn’t possible,
  2. Blame Obama.

As always, we should expect the Clintons to tell a mixture of truth and falsehoods to get what they want, which is: Power.

Who’s the Real Grifter?

Posted by V the K at 3:54 pm - July 6, 2014.
Filed under: Hillary Clinton,Sarah Palin

Of all the insults deranged leftists hurl at Sarah Palin, {“c*nt” “quitter” “pig” “world class idiot (and consumer of human feces)“} the one I have always found most baffling is “grifter.” The implication being that Palin is a con artist of some kind; that the money she has earned since being sued out of the Alaska governorship by vindictive leftists on phony, trumped-up ethics charges has somehow been earned illegitimately. That she has somehow swindled people out of the money she has made since leaving public office.

Yet, these same leftists hardly blink at all when Hillary Clinton is making speeches at universities at $200,000+ a pop, even as these same universities are constantly raising the costs of tuition and related student debt. And they accept, without question, Mrs. Clinton’s claim that the proceeds are all donated “to charity.” As it turns out, the “charity” is her own “Clinton Global Initiative,” from which she, her husband, and her daughter all draw hefty salaries and enjoy lavish, globe-trotting perks.

Seems like a pretty lucrative con to me. But none of those lefties would ever call Hillary a grifter; that would be sexist.

Hillary Says Her Nine-Figure Fortune Doesn’t Make Her “Well-Off”

Posted by V the K at 11:48 am - June 23, 2014.
Filed under: Hillary Clinton

Only a Democrat could get away with this kind of nonsense:

“They don’t see me as part of the problem,” Clinton said of Americans who are upset about income inequality, adding, “Because we pay ordinary income tax, unlike a lot of people who are truly well off, not to name names; and we’ve done it through dint of hard work.”

Hillary and Bill sit on a fortune of over $1ooM. She gets paid $200,000 for a single speech (I guess that what she means by “hard work.”) She got an $8M advance for her “autobiography” (which coincided with the time she claimed to be “dead broke.”)

And yet, the press has not attacked her the way they attacked Mitt Romney for his wealth and success. The Left-Wing press isn’t tearing Hillary apart for being too wealthy to understand the problems of working Americans; not the way they tore apart Sarah Palin, who actually does come from a real, working-class background and made her own (considerably smaller than the Clinton’s) fortune.

To raise criticisms of Hillary far more legitimate than the left’s attacks on Sarah Palin would be sexist, I suppose.

Hillary Squirms on Gay Marriage Question

Posted by V the K at 6:21 pm - June 12, 2014.
Filed under: Hillary Clinton

Hillary was asked a straightforward question: You used to oppose gay marriage, now you favor it. Did you change your mind on the issue, or was your previous position just a politically expedient calculation at a time when gay marriage was less popular?

The exchange is here.  Long story short, Hillary dodged the question, and then went off on the host: “I think you are trying to say that I used to be opposed and now I am in favor and I did it for political reasons. And that’s just flat wrong.

Some people can’t handle the truth very well.

Ace analyzes:

Hillary’s calculating, dishonest nature keeps her from answering this question straight — even if she lies about it straight.

She won’t say she changed her mind – because that would make her a Gay H8r at some point in the past.

She obviously won’t admit that she always had the same opinion and just lied about it.

She tries to have it both ways — she both always believed in gay marriage, but also didn’t lie when she said she didn’t.

I think what she really means is, “What difference does it make?”

Heh

Hillary Feels Your Pain, Middle America

Posted by V the K at 9:52 am - June 10, 2014.
Filed under: Hillary Clinton

Hillary Clinton wants all of you middle class peckerwoods in flyover country whining about your lost jobs, declining income, and skyrocket food and energy prices under Obama that she can totes relate to your hardship.

Hillary Clinton, who recently raked in $5 million dollars in speaking fees in 15 months, recounted to Diane Sawyer the sad tale of her former destitution, telling her, “We came out of the White House not only dead broke but in debt.” According to Clinton, she and her husband, who has made over $100 million since leaving the White House, “struggled to, you know, piece together the resources for mortgages for houses, for Chelsea’s education, you know, it was not easy.”

So, you see, she is just like the coal miner who lost his job due to Obama’s EPA regulations. or the construction worker who’s been replaced by an illegal who lives in a house-trailer with thirty-five other illegals. Just like you, she left the White House with nothing to her name but an $8 Million book deal, a $200,000 annual pension, a $188,000 senator’s salary, and a multi-million dollar house in New York. And her other multi-million home in DC. But aside from that they had nothin’. Nothin’ I tell ya! Why, they were so poor, they actually had to steal furniture from the White House just to get by. That’s how bad it was. So, you see, middle America, Hillary knows what hardship is. So, stop your whining and vote for her already.

Karl Rove Outfoxes the Clintons

The media may tell you otherwise, but Karl Rove just scored one of the few unequivocal victories over the Clinton machine.  Some will say his question about Mrs. Clinton’s health will backfire (search), but on whom?  Mr. Rove isn’t running for office.

It was Mr. Clinton himself who awarded the laurels to the Republican strategies when the Democrat vouched for “his wife Hillary’s health“.

As Stephen Kruiser put it in a quoting the article linked above:

I’m sure that this is just an attention getting evil genius ploy on the part of Karl Rove, but I am enjoying it because he’s giving them a taste of their own medicine. Pulling something out of thin air to get the character assassination rumor mill fired up is classic Clinton. The mere fact that Bubba even had to answer a question about it is a minor victory for Rove.

My only quibble with Kruiser relates to the magnitude of the victory.  It’s not minor.  It’s significant.   The media are now talking about Hillary’s health (if only to denounce Rove).  But, still Americans are thinking about her health.  And asking questions.

There will be calls for the former Secretary of State to release her medical records.  And questions about her health will persist if when she fails to do so. (more…)

Views of Edward Snowden

Hillary thinks he’s a traitor. She recently said:

When he emerged and when he absconded with all that material, I was puzzled because we have all these protections for whistle-blowers. If he were concerned and wanted to be part of the American debate, he could have been…It’s sort of odd that he would flee…I don’t understand why he couldn’t have been part of the debate here at home. He could have quit, he could have taken whistleblower protection…

But to high school kids, he’s a hero:

[GWU admissions officer] Freitag skimmed the extracurriculars, read the first essay, rated it good. GW also asks students to list a role model and two words to describe themselves. As for herself, Freitag said, she would list “Martha Stewart/Tina Fey” and “sassy/classy.” This year, she’s seeing a lot of Edward Snowden citations.

So whose view is right? Hillary’s, or the schoolkids’?

I must say this much: I don’t believe Hillary for one second when she talks about “whistleblower protections”, like she always honors them. I think that Snowden may have been right to fear for his life (not only his freedom), if should stay in the U.S. and try to play that game. And after seeing the U.S. government grow hideously out-of-control in the last 6-8 years, I would rather know about the NSA spying, than not.

So, on present information, I think it’s possible for Snowden to be both traitor (on foreign payroll?) and hero.

First, some Middle Eastern guy did it to President Bush in 2008. Now, a woman has done it to Hillary:

I’ll say little except to note Hillary’s comment, “That is not the way democracy works” – which is not what I remember lefties saying in 2008.

One reason (of many) to #BanBossy

Remember a couple of years ago, Hillary yukking it up over the death of a foreign head of State? “We came, we saw, he died! (har har)”

Granted that the victim (Libya’s Muammar Gaddafi) was an enemy and dictator who probably deserved it; still, I can’t recall any of Condoleezza Rice, Dick Cheney, or George W. Bush ever showing such ugly pleasure in the death of any other human being.

If I’m mistaken – if there is a comparable example, from one of Bush Cheney Rice – please remind me in the comments.

UPDATE: Garry Kasparov, the anti-Putin dissident and former chess champion, just tweeted another possible reason to #BanBossy:

Hillary was the captain of the Titanic that was US-Russia relations as Secretary of State. Her as admiral of whole fleet makes me nervous!

Not to change the subject, but Kasparov’s new article at Politico reminds us who Putin is.

Mission Impossible: Trying to Make Hillary More Human

Posted by V the K at 6:41 pm - March 1, 2014.
Filed under: Hillary Clinton

Recognizing that Hillary Rodham Clinton possessed all the charm of a canker sore, Clinton White House aides spent countless hours trying to figure out how to make the first lady look more human, and less like a socialist android.

Even in the early days of the Clinton White House, consultants and political advisers were scrambling to soften Hillary Clinton’s hard-edged image, looking for ways to “humanize her” for the press and public.

In the latter years, as the media turned, the advice was far more blunt. “Be real,” media consultant Mandy Grunwald told her in a 1999 memo. Grunwald told the first lady the public tends to see her only in “very stern situations,” and warned her not to let the press see her “uncomfortable or testy.”

The 1999 memo was a particularly frank example of advisers looking to style Clinton for the public. At the time, Grunwald was with the Grunwald Communications firm she founded and was trying to smooth relations between retiring New York Sen. Daniel Patrick Moynihan and Clinton — who would later win Moynihan’s seat. The memo referred to an upcoming “Moynihan event.” Grunwald urged Clinton to stay “conversational” and not raise her voice.

They even tried to push her on the idea of appearing on popular 1990′s sitcom Home Improvement. I can imagine the plot pitch. Tim Taylor bangs one of the interns on Tool Time, and Hillary comes round to tell Jill Taylor, “Hey, what difference does it make now?”

If they wanted to make Hillary look more… warm and human… they should have turned to an expert.

Also, Clinton advisor Sandy Burger (the guy who filched classified documents from the National Archive before they could embarass the Clintons) was apparently miffed that none of the characters on The West Wing was based on him.  Maybe he should have been worried a little more about Osama bin Laden and a little less about TV shows.
