Hillary Clinton, Sixty Minutes, then and now

I was looking for the clip of what didn’t make it to the full Hillary Clinton 60 minute interview last night, but made it to the online version. It was shown on Fox this morning. Alas, no luck. But I did come across this little treasure. Note that she sure must have had a lot of face work done. I hardly recognized her. Below is the video notes.

With the joint appearance (love-in/laugh-in) of Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama on CBS’ “60 Minutes”, we thought a little look-back would be in order. A look-back/mashup featuring the last time Mrs. Clinton was on the once-venerable news program…with another powerful politician – her husband. The year was 1992. We call our bit of time travel “Now & Then”.

Obama’s plagiarism was just merely inspiration

Funny isn’t it. Within an hour of Melanie Trump’s speech the media had determined that several paragraphs were the same as Mooch’s. It went on and on. This was a wife of a candidate that had created this mortal sin. But wind back not to a wife, but the Presidential candidate who plagiarized. The reaction? Not so much. Were we reminded of it? No. And so it goes.

When the Clinton campaign cried foul, The New York Times reported:

With the next round of voters set to weigh in on the Democratic presidential race, Senator Hillary Rodham Clinton’s campaign on Monday accused Senator Barack Obama of committing plagiarism in a weekend speech. Mr. Obama dismissed the charge as absurd and desperate.

Just Words. Just not Obama’s

Does Hillary clinton know how to use a computer?

I confess. I sat riveted to the Clinton hearing. I am about to offer a supposition that is worthy of two boxes of tin foil. Hang with me. If one listened closely, one could pick up hints from Comey that Hillary was technically challenged. As the hours waxed and waned, the Democrats and Republicans bounced their five-minute drill back and forth. An inkling of it hit a high point when it was suggested that Hillary didn’t pick up on the markings for classified documents. Why, because it was a small c. and well……. There was the outrage well how could she not know… well it was small….

Comey: Clinton May Not Have Understood Classified Marking System

Now comes my supposition. What if Hillary doesn’t know how to or does not for whatever reason, use a computer? What are the legal ramifications of it? What if Comey knows in fact, that Hillary was not involved in the nuts and bolts of sending and receiving this Email business but rather Huma Abedin and Cheyl Mills at the least? If it was they who made all of the arrangements? Quite frankly I have never been able to visualize Hillary laboring over a keyboard. I was reminded of a post of mine:  Deposition: Clinton clueless on Email, never used passwords

The revelations came as part of the deposition by Judicial Watch, the nonprofit government watchdog group, of Lewis A. Lukens, a veteran 27-year foreign service officer at the State Department who served as the deputy executive secretary and executive director of the Office of the Secretariat during part of Clinton’s tenure at State.

Judicial Watch released the deposition Thursday of Lukens who was deposed on May 18.

Citing a conversation Lukens had with Clinton Chief of Staff Cheryl Mills, he wrote, “She says problem (sic) is HRC does not know how to use a computer to do emails — only Blackberry.”  HRC refers to Hillary Rodham Clinton.

Daily Caller?

As Secretary of State, Hillary Clinton never used a password to protect her computer emails, and she was clueless about how regular emails work on a conventional computer, according to a deposition of a foreign service officer at the State Department.

Wait… what?

Fox News has the details on the sworn testimony of a State Department staffer charged with assisting Clinton with gaining access to her personal email address:

In a two-hour deposition with the conservative legal watchdog group Judicial Watch last week, Lewis Lukens also said he offered to set up a “stand-alone” computer for Clinton to check her personal email account, only to be told that she “does not know how to use a computer to do email.”

The question from Judicial Watch attorneys that brought about the revelation of Hillary’s PC IQ issues was a pretty important one:

“The crux of the issue was that BlackBerrys and iPhones are not allowed in the secretary’s office suite, so the question was: How is the secretary going to be able to check her e-mails if she’s not able to have the BlackBerry at her desk with her?”

Here is a clip with Hillary saying, why would I use Email?

Uploaded on Sep 21, 2007

Brian Ross’ exclusive interview with Hillary’s largest (unreported) donor, Peter Paul (www.hillcap.org) showing his home videos that prove Hillary knew him well and solicited illegal contributions from him she has hidden from voters and the FEC for seven years

From the report’s transcript, via the video and Lexis Nexis:

ROSS: (VO) Dionne Warwick sang for the small group. Ironically enough, “That’s what friends are for.” Numerous stars were there, but Paul and his wife Andrea were the ones seated right next to Mrs. Clinton. In fact, Paul’s home videos picked up Mrs. Clinton saying she had stopped using e-mail messages because of all the investigations she had been through.

Senator CLINTON: (From home video) As much as I’ve been investigated and all of that, you know, why would I—I don’t even want—why would I ever want to do e-mail?

Mr. PAUL: (From home video) No, no.

Senator CLINTON: (From home video) Can you imagine?

FBI James Comey, the ultimate chameleon who sold his soul?

James Comey, the ultimate Universal man, a wolf in sheep’s clothes or a chameleon? He has been a Prosecutor, Lobbyist, Hedge Fund operator, Chairman of the U.S. Chamber of Commerce. For some reason, Obama felt safe enough to appoint him head of the FBI. Now we know why. He can be bought and sold just like Ashcroft, Eric Holder and the rest of them. Comey fell on his sword for how many pieces of silver?

Let’s take a look. He has been everything but defending the little guy. From going after Martha Stewart cutting his chops as a public prosecutor, somehow played the game and got George Bush to appoint him Deputy Attorney General and landed under Ashcroft. How about his political bent?

He voted for Carter in 1980, but in ’84, Comey: “I voted for Reagan—I’d moved from Communist to whatever I am now. I’m not even sure how to characterize myself politically. Maybe at some point, I’ll have to figure it out.”

“I had no sense whether Jim was an R or a D,” says Eric Holder Jr., who worked closely with Comey when Holder was deputy attorney general to Janet Reno in the Clinton administration—and who remains a confirmed D.

Sounds like a man with a story. Where did he start? In law. He was a partner at firm McGuireWoods, where, among other things, he successfully defended a company against claims its machinery had caused asbestos-related injuries.

And from there? From there he moved into public prosecution and eventually came to the attention of President George W Bush, who appointed him deputy attorney general of the United States in 2003. But he left after two years in the role.

To do what? Sell tanks, bombs and jets to drop them from. He joined Lockheed Martin, one of the world’s largest defence contractors, as senior vice-president. (A Lobbyist)

In 2005, Comey left law enforcement for the defense industry, joining money-in-politics powerhouse Lockheed Martin. As senior vice president and general counsel he earned more than $6 million in compensation in his last full year with the company.

And then? Dipped his toe in the world of hedge funds at Bridgewater Associates before joining the board of HSBC Holdings.

The author of this piece makes a prescient observation regarding the Comey Ashcroft relationship:

On the surface, it’s an odd pairing: Comey—who cites liberal theologian Reinhold Niebuhr as a formative influence, and who can sing along with Good Charlotte pop-punk hits—and Ashcroft, a reactionary born-again Christian who breaks into spirited renditions of biblical hymns. There’s little risk Comey will lose his sense of humor in his new job. It’s only his soul that’s up for grabs.

Now we know why it was so odd.

Oh, by the way, where’s John Ashcroft today? Why he’s on the Board of Directors of Blackwater USA,which now goes by the harmless sounding name – Academi – conjuring up images of ivy-covered buildings and lounging intellectuals.

Comey and Ashcroft – Lockheed Martin and Blackwater: Defenders of our civil liberties?

Eric Holder? He is now a white-collar defense attorney at a firm that lobbies for major banks, pharmaceutical companies and defense contractors.

Hillary Clinton accepted the endorsement of former Attorney General Eric Holder, the man who oversaw a record decrease in white-collar prosecutions, and who inadvertently coined the phrase — “too big to jail” — which is often used to describe the Obama Justice Department’s approach to corporate crime.

AG Roberta Lynch, just another prey of the Clinton juggernaut

We have heard it before. Straight arrows become ensnared in the backwash of the Clinton’s corruption. The victims will be lucky enough if they live to survive. Is Attorney General Lynch the latest to fall prey? I include the clip of why it can be so deadly to have heard the Clinton name. While there are lots of people included in the clip that are a far far stretch, it is a refresher on how much travail has followed them. I give you this, not for the truth of the matter, but rather what happens when one’s life touches the Clintons. Setting tin foil aside, would you want to be a friend of the Clintons? Is it really so depressing that one would want to end one’s life? And people are worried about Trump and his stability?

NY Post:

Yet there’s another dimension to their chronic crookedness, and it gets insufficient attention even though it might be more important to the nation’s well-being.

“Wherever they go, whatever they do, ethics are trashed and suspicions of criminal conduct follow them like night follows day.”

It is that, in addition to being personally corrupt, the Clintons are corrupters. They are piggish users, with the people and institutions around them inevitably tarnished and sometimes destroyed even as the Clintons escape to their next scam.

….. and with Lynch?

The explosive result shows the Clintons haven’t lost their touch for leaving destruction and chaos in their wake. The remarkable events also serve as a clear reminder that while the Clintons enriched themselves over the years, they were helping to bankrupt the public trust in its government and institutions. And they won’t stop until they’re stopped.

 

White House to rally businesses to hire refugees, double global resettlement

Amazing isn’t it. One of the triumvirate of the Three women who brought us the new long war in Libyamaster planner of the failed Libyan State, designer of the non-Syrian intervention, blantant anti-semite, a master creator of all those refugees, now tells us and the world we need to import all of the refugees she helped create and disperse them and their primitive ideologies throughout the developed world. Lest we forget, I bring you a short snippet at the end as a reminder of just who Ms Power is, and the mindset of this administration. Yes, she is more than married to Cass Sunstein. She is and has been a threat to our Nation.

The White House will on Thursday rally businesses to give jobs to refugees ahead of a September summit where U.S. President Barack Obama will urge world leaders to boost humanitarian funds by a third and double the number of refugees being resettled.

U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations, Samantha Power, said on Wednesday that the Obama summit during the annual gathering of world leaders at the United Nations would also aim to get one million refugee children in school and one million more refugees access to legal work in the neighboring countries they fled to.

“We need businesses, big and small, to do more too; which is why tomorrow, the White House is launching a private sector call to action, which will rally companies to do their part, from providing jobs to donating services to refugees,” Power said.

Power said the United Nations estimates that some 1.2 million refugees globally need to be resettled elsewhere because they are unsafe or their needs are not being met, but that in 2015 only 107,000 people relocated.

She said the United States intended to meet its goal of taking in 10,000 Syrian refugees, out of a total 85,000 refugees, this year and slammed calls by some Americans to halt the refugee program following attacks in Paris and Orlando

“Ignorance and prejudice make for bad advisors,” Power said. Really Samantha?

More at Reuters and just who is this Samantha Power?

Commentary Magazine: (An excellent piece, well worth the full read on our gal)

 In a 2003 article for the New Republic, Power:  “The U.S,” she wrote, “came to be seen less as it sees itself (the cop protecting the world from rogue nations) than as the very runaway state international law needs to contain.”

Power wrote that America’s record in world affairs had been so harmful to the freedoms of people around the world that the United States could remedy the problem only through profound self-criticism and the wholesale adoption of new policies. Acknowledging that President Bush was correct in saying that “some America-bashers” hate the American people’s freedoms, Ms. Power stated that much anti-Americanism derives from the role that U.S. power “has played in denying such freedoms to others” and concluded:

U.S. foreign policy has to be rethought. It needs not tweaking but overhauling….Instituting a doctrine of mea culpa would enhance our credibility by showing that American decision-makers do not endorse the sins of their predecessors. When [then German Chancellor] Willie [sic] Brandt went down on one knee in the Warsaw ghetto, his gesture was gratifying to World War II survivors, but it was also ennobling and cathartic for Germany. Would such an approach be futile for the United States?

Gates: Obama went against all of the National Security team on ousting Mubarak

This is how we treat our friends and allies. Hillary Clinton, Samantha Power and Susan Rice orchestrated the ousting of Mubarak and the Arab Spring. Yet has Hilary been even questioned about it?

Former Secretary of Defense Robert Gates told Fox News that President Barack Obama ignored the advice of his “entire national security team” during the Egyptian coup in 2011 that ousted Hosni Mubarak, the country’s former president.

“Literally the entire national security team recommended unanimously handling Mubarak differently than we did,” Gates said. “And the president took the advice of three junior backbenchers in terms of how to treat Mubarak.”

Anti-Semite Susan Rice rises to NSA and Samantha Power moves to U.N.

In joining Ms. Rice and Ms. Power, Mrs. Clinton made an unusual break with Secretary of Defense Robert M. Gates, who, along with the national security adviser, Thomas E. Donilon, and the counterterrorism chief, John O. Brennan, had urged caution. Libya was not vital to American national security interests, the men argued, and Mr. Brennan worried that the Libyan rebels remained largely unknown to American officials, and could have ties to Al Qaeda.”
