How quickly we forget! If you’re over 35, take a walk with me down memory lane—you won’t believe what you have forgotten. If you’re under 35, read on—I promise you that you will be amazed at what you missed! (By the way, sadly, this isn’t a joke. I wish it was.)
REMEMBER WHEN BILL CLINTON WAS PRESIDENT?(January 20, 1993 to January 20, 2001—two terms)When Bill Clinton was president, he allowed Hillary to assume authority over an attempt to reform health care. Her proposed plan was so bad that many Democrats came up with competing plans of their own in protest, and in spite of threats and intimidation, on September 26, 1994, the “Hillarycare” bill was declared dead.This fiasco cost the American taxpayers about $13 million for studies, promotion, and other efforts.
Then, President Clinton gave Hillary authority over selecting a female attorney general. Her first two selections were Zoe Baird and Kimba Wood—both were forced to withdraw their names from consideration. Next, she chose Janet Reno, which husband Bill described as ” my worst mistake.” (Some may not remember that Reno made the decision to gas David Koresh and the Branch Davidian religious sect in Waco, Texas resulting in dozens of deaths of women and children.)
大意：然后，克林顿总统又让希拉里挑选女司法部长，她推荐了两个人，结果这两个都因种种原因退出。她又选了一个，Janet Reno，这人当上了司法部长，但后来被克林顿总统称为“最可怕的错误”。 （你们有的人可能不记得Reno这个人了，她就是下令用催泪弹攻击一个宗教团体的总部，导致几十个妇女儿童死亡的罪魁祸首）
Husband Bill also allowed Hillary to make recommendations for the head of the Civil Rights Commission—Lani Guanier was her selection. After considerable backlash from
prominent Democratic senators concerning Ms. Guanier’s radical views, Bill Clinton withdrew her name from nomination, stating that she did not represents the civil rights views that he had championed during his campaign。
However, apparently a slow learner, husband Bill continued to allow Hillaryto make more recommendations. She chose former law partners, Web Hubbel for the Justice Department, Vince Foster for the White House staff, and William Kennedy for the Treasury Department. Her selections went well: Hubbel went to prison, Foster (presumably) committed suicide, and Kennedy was forced to resign. (Is anyone wondering yet what her Supreme Court Justice appointments would be like?)
大意：但克林顿总统显然是个不长记性的家伙，还在继续让希拉里推荐这个推荐那个。她选了自己以前的生意伙伴Web Hubbel执掌司法部，让Vince Foster做白宫顾问，William Kennedy做财政部长。结果这几个家伙都栽在自己领域里： Hubbel 犯法坐牢，Foster被自杀，Kennedy被迫辞职。（看到这里，还有人想象不出她上台后会选什么样的大法官吗？）
Many younger voters will have no knowledge of “Travelgate,” the first major ethics controversy during Bill’s presidency.Hillary wanted to award unfettered travel contracts to Clinton friend, Harry Thompson—but the White House Travel Office refused to comply. She trumped up allegations of financial mismanagement and reported seven long-time White House employees to the FBI. This ruined their reputations, got them fired, and caused a thirty-six month investigation. Eventually, most of the employees were reinstated and Clinton associates were forced out of the travel office.Only one White House employee, Billy Dale, was charged with a crime—the enormous crime of mixing personal and White House funds; a jury acquitted him in less than two hours.
大意：年轻点的选民可能不知道“旅行门”事件，那是克林顿执政期间第一个腐败丑闻。希拉里想给朋友Harry Thompson提供无限制的旅差费补贴，但白宫旅行办公室拒绝合作。她就捏造了经济犯罪的名目，向FBI报告了七个在白宫长期供职的工作人员，毁坏了这些人的名声，搞得他们被解雇。经过36个月的调查，这些人大多数被洗清了罪名，恢复了职位，而负责克林顿旅差事宜的人被赶出了旅行办公室。只有一个白宫雇员，Billy Dale，被控罪，罪名是混淆个人开支和白宫账目，但陪审团两小时内就判决他无罪释放。
Still not convinced of her ineptness, Hillary was allowed to recommend a close Clinton friend, Craig Livingstone, for the position of Director of White House Security. When Livingstone was investigated for the improper access of about 900 FBI files of Clinton enemies (Filegate) and the widespread use of drugs by White House staff, suddenly Hillary and the President denied even knowing Livingstone, and of course, denied knowledge of drug use in the White House.Following this debacle, the FBI closed its White House Liaison Office after more than thirty years of service to seven presidents.
Next, when women started coming forward with allegations of sexual harassment and rape by Bill Clinton, Hillary was put in charge of the “bimbo eruption” and scandal defense.
Let’s look at some of her more notable decisions in this regard . . . She urged her husband not to settle the Paula Jones lawsuit. After the Starr investigation, they settled with Ms. Jones. She refused to release the Whitewater documents, which led to the appointment of Ken Starr as Special Prosecutor. After $80 million dollars of taxpayer money was spent, Starr’s investigation led to Monica Lewinsky, which led to Bill lying about and later admitting his affairs. Hillary’s devious game plan resulted in Bill losing his license to practice law for ‘lying under oath’ to a grand jury, followed by his subsequent impeachment by the House of Representatives.
大意：让我们来看看其中比较突出的几个案例。她叫丈夫别跟Paula Jones庭外和解，但当Starr调查报告公布后，他们不得不花钱把Paula摆平。她拒绝公布白水案件的文件，导致Ken Starr被指定为专项调查人。花费了纳税人八千万美元调查费，Starr的调查报告引出了莱温斯基丑闻，导致比尔-克林顿对此撒谎，然后又不得不承认与莱温斯基的性关系。希拉里的恶魔花招导致比尔-克林顿因对陪审团撒谎而失去律师资格，还被议会提出弹劾。
Hillary avoided indictment for perjury and obstruction of justice during the Starr investigation by repeating, “I do not recall,” “I have no recollection,” and “I don’t know” a total of 56 times while under oath. (Sound familiar?)
After leaving the White House, Hillary was forced to return an estimated $200,000 in White House furniture, china, and artwork that she had “mistakenly thought was hers.”
So you see, the email scandal and all of her malfeasance regarding the handling of Top Secret information, not to mention the “pay to play” schemes of the Clinton Foundation, are nothing new.
Hillary’s entire political career has been nothing but a web of lies, corruption and destruction in her quest for power.Is anyone else ready to say, “Enough is enough!”?But unfortunately, I’m sure her loyal fans will say, “What difference does it make?”
