Hillary Clinton Lies Again, Says She ‘Did Not Put Down Conditions’ to Support Obama in 2008

She just can’t keep herself from lying. Does she even know the truth anymore? One has to ask as she apparently can quite stridently deny the truth of the matter. She just can’t help but be willing to do most anything for money. Hillary was a bit snarky through her whole interview with Rachael Maddow. This piece is just making the blogosphere and worthy of holding her feet to the fire. Here we go:

Hillary Clinton said that Bernie Sanders should follow the example she set in 2008 when she threw her support behind then-Sen. Barack Obama without putting down “conditions,” but a look back to 2008 shows that Clinton refused to step aside until Obama promised to help her with her campaign debt. Below a partial transcript:

“Let’s look at what happened in 2008, because that’s the closest example,” Clinton said. “We got to the end in June and I did not put down conditions. I didn’t say, ‘You know what, if Senator Obama does X, Y, and Z, maybe I’ll support him.’ I said, ‘I am supporting Senator Obama, because no matter what our differences might be, they pale in comparison to the differences between us and the Republicans.’”

“That is what I think one does,” Clinton concluded. “That is certainly what I did and I hope that we will see the same this year.”

Although Clinton said she threw her support behind Obama without preconditions, a stroll down memory lane indicates she strayed from the truth.

Reports from early June 2008 show that the Obama campaign’s willingness to assist Clinton with the massive campaign debt she had amassed was a major sticking point when it came to her political surrender.

Top Clinton adviser Harold Ickes told major campaign donors that Clinton “was unlikely to pull out of the race until the issue of her massive debts was resolved,” according to a June 3, 2008, report from the Daily Telegraph, which also indicated that negotiations were in progress.

“It’s not about the vice-presidency or any other position she might get,” a source close to a donor said. “It’s about the money—in particular the Clinton family money.”

“The Obama campaign might have to reach deeply into its well-stocked coffers in order to secure the full support of Mrs. Clinton and her husband Bill in the November general election,” wrote theTelegraph’s Toby Harnden.

The Clinton campaign was more than $22 million in debt at the time, and $12 million of that was money Clinton had loaned to the campaign herself.

Hillary Clinton, Cisco, China and money. Perfect together

Scooby Doo AKA Hillary Clinton is just common folk don’t you know. So like us, so much that her little corruption angle continues unabated. Meanwhile she smiles and smiles and smiles. And her little head bobbles on. No doubt the thousands of worker visas were thrown in as a bonus. I will throw in the funnies of how her week went.I would say a good week for us.

International Business Times reports:

Cisco Systems had a public relations problem: Having invested $16 billion in the Chinese market, the technology giant was suddenly facing congressional scrutiny over its alleged complicity in building the so-called Great Firewall that helps China’s authoritarian regime censor information and surveil its citizens.

The San Jose, California, company endured a high-profile Senate hearing about its Chinese operations in 2008 and reaffirmed its “continued commitment to China.” But the issue wouldn’t die. A group of investors stormed the company’s annual meeting in November 2009, pressing a shareholder resolution that would force the company to prevent the Chinese government from using Cisco technology to engage in what critics said was widespread human-rights abuse.

That’s when then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton tossed the company a lifeline. Weeks after Cisco executives killed the shareholder initiative, Cisco was honored as a finalist for the State Department’s award for “outstanding corporate citizenship, innovation and democratic principles.” The next year, the company won the award. While the honors were for the company’s work in the Middle East, they gave Cisco a well-timed opportunity to change the subject and present itself as a champion of human rights.

What Clinton did not say at the State Department award ceremonies was that Cisco had been pumping money into her family’s foundation. Though the foundation will not release an exact timeline of the contributions, records reviewed by International Business Times show that Cisco had by December 2008 donated from $500,000 to $1 million to the foundation. The company had hired lobbying firms run by former Clinton aides. After the money flowed into the foundation, Clinton’s State Department not only lauded Cisco’s human rights record, it also delivered millions of dollars worth of new government contracts to the company.

Hillary Clinton lies again, lies about family immigration history

Hillary just cannot help herself from wandering off the reservation of truth. Is it important? I think so. Let’s hold her feet to the fire. Video over at Buzz Feed. Update with a reminder of Liz Warren.

Speaking in Iowa Wednesday, former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton said that all her grandparents had immigrated to the United States, a story that conflicts with public census and other records related to her maternal and paternal grandparents.

“All my grandparents, you know, came over here and you know my grandfather went to work in lace mill in Scranton, Pennsylvania, and worked there until he retired at 65. He started there when he was a teenager and just kept going,” Clinton said.

Clinton has told the story of grandmother immigrating as a young girl before. Most recently in a speech last year:

My grandmother on my father’s side, Hanna Jones Rodham — by the way, insisted on using all 3 names despite what people in Scranton, Penn. might have thought at the time ― was one of those tough Methodist women who was never afraid to get her hands dirty. She traced her Methodism back to the Wesley brothers themselves, who converted her great grandparents in the small coal mining villages of Southern Wales. She immigrated with her family as a young girl to Scranton and went to work — very young―in a silk mill, and then she met and married my grandfather, who had also come to this country as a young man from the coalmining area in Newcastle, in England.

Hillary Clinton hires Google executive as head of technology

Anyone who has been around my blog for any length of time has read my numerous posts on the involvement of Google and the unrest and agitation of the so-called Arab Spring aiding directly in the downfall of Libya and Egypt governments. So now Hillary will have access to every scrap of info on us, and Google has it. No doubt Google will be able to keep her server in ship shape as well. First the news, then a memory recall done back in 2011, followed by earlier links.

The Washington Post reports:

Hillary Rodham Clinton has hired a longtime Google executive to oversee her likely presidential campaign’s technology development and build new ways for Clinton to engage with voters, according to Democrats with knowledge of the move.

Stephanie Hannon, who is Google’s director of product management for civic innovation and social impact, will become the chief technology officer of the expected Clinton campaign, according to the Democrats, who spoke on the condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to discuss the appointment.

At Clinton’s New York campaign headquarters, Hannon will serve on the senior staff and oversee a team of engineers and developers, which could include outside consultants, to devise Web sites, apps and other tools for the former secretary of state and her staff to engage with supporters and voters.

Now from the way back machine:

Russia blames Google for stirring Egypt unrest 

ERIC SCHMIDT, FORMER GOOGLE CEO: “My view of Mr. Soros is that he is one of the most important people in the world today in terms of the impact he has had.”

The world’s governments are getting sick of google and its shenanigans. We should be as well.

First they are working really, really closely with the government. That is OK. They have a close relationship with the NSA. OK. They work closely with law enforcement. Cool with that. Last year they signed a $27 million deal with the National Geospatial Intelligence Agency. I don’t even know what that is.

But they have been accused of receiving preferential treatment and a $6.5 million contract with the General Services Administration. They are working hard to bring net neutrality, the kind that we’ve talked about on this program that hard left groups like Free Press are advocating for.

Three reasons to be wary of Google

Eric Schmidt, the former CEO, he resigned two weeks ago, he is on the White House council for science and technology, co-chaired by John Holdren. They also have privileged access to NASA airfields.

Second point — they are working way too close with hard-core leftists. Eric Schmidt is on the board of an organization called the Politics of Trust Network. You might recognize a couple of other names on that board like Van Jones, oh, and Drummond Pike, the former CEO and founder of the Tides Foundation.

In 2010 the Google, Inc. charitable giving fund of the Tides Foundation gave over $145 million directly to nonprofits and academic institutions. Google has made donations in the seven figure range to Moveon.org. George Soros is doing that, too, one of farther left political action groups in America.

They also gave money to the Trickle Up Program, a big recipient of cash from the Tides Foundation and George Soros’ Open Society Institute. And speaking of George Soros, here is Eric Schmidt saying this about George Soros. Full story here at  Fox News

Russia is getting tired of google as well:

Prime Minister Vladimir Putin’s deputy blamed Google Inc in an interview published on Tuesday for stirring up trouble in the revolution that ousted Egyptian leader Hosni Mubarak.

“Look what they have done in Egypt, those highly-placed managers of Google, what manipulations of the energy of the people took place there,” Russian Deputy Prime Minister Igor Sechin told the Wall Street Journal.

Russia has so far resisted placing restrictions on the Internet, but analysts say there are a group of hardliners close to Putin who would like to impose controls similar to China’s.

Stud Obama’s campaign “Coming from his loins”

Ew! David Axelrod Says Obama’s Passionate Speeches Are ‘Coming From His Loins’ so reports The Lonely Conservative:

President Obama’s creepy campaign adviser David Axelrod turned up the creep factor about 100% today when he said that Obama’s passionate campaign speeches are “coming from his loins.” A reader emailed saying “I would say that for once Axlerod is right on the money—since all Obama wants to do is f**k us big-time.” How true.

“I’ve never seen him more exhilarated than he is right now. He believes in what he’s doing. He believes in what he’s fighting for. You can see in the speech that he’s delivering that this is coming from his loins. I just wanted to say loins,” Axelrod added with a smile. “I wanted to see if I can get loins in the story.”

Earlier it was Best political ad ever-Obama reaches a new low – The Lena Dunham ad about doing it the first time. Well, I thought I had posted Ew! last week. But no, Axedlrod now doubles down with a new visual. Is this the latest attempt to gain the women’s vote? Ew indeed.

Mitt Romney wants to talk about creating jobs, cutting the deficit and reigning in runaway entitlements. Barack Obama wants to turn the polling booth into a Democrat Party boudoir. Which one sounds reasonable and which one sounds repellent and intrusive?

David Axelrod in 1994 ‘You Can’t Talk About Progress While the Middle Class is Hurting’

Nobody Believes You on the “Improving” Economy Argument

Democratic strategists Stanley Greenberg and James Carville have released a striking new report arguing in stark terms that some key voting groups now reject President Obama’s claim that the economy is improving — and may well reject Obama himself in November.

So how about a spin in the “way back” machine and take a look at what David Axelrod had to say in  1994. I think David is running out of steam, or is Valerie Jarrett the brain behind Obama’s re-election campaign? Or is Obama’s narcissism getting the better of him and his ego just can’t take the sad news that Marxism just is not working.

In 1994 Axelrod Said You Can’t Talk About Progress While the Middle Class is Hurting

FLASHBACK: David Axelrod “If you stand up and claim great progress you’re only frustrating this alienated middle class more.”

“Well I think Bush did it from the 9th hole and from the cigar boat and other places and the impression he got was that he was out of touch.”

Yes, Reagan sure knew how to frame the question didn’t he?  I hope they use this in ads this time around. It says it all.

Obama’s Way Forward

I think this sums up the week. We are like lemmings. Obama “starts” his campaign today on Karl Marx’s birthday. Happy Birthday Karl. You must be proud.
