Correcting Hillary’s History

Dick Morris, former political advisor to Bill Clinton and Fox News, wrote the following piece back in May of 2007. As you may recall, Morris managed Bill Clinton’s successful 1996 reelection campaign until he was embroiled in a sex scandal with a prostitute. Since then, he has broken ties with the Clintons, and created a cottage industry out of critiquing them in his column in the New York Post and on Fox News.

I’ve never been a big fan of Morris, but when I came across this I thought it would be a good refresher course for all of us on Hillary’s history, pre-Benghazi. She only becomes more despicable with time, and it makes me shiver to think she could possibly be our next president.

AN ANALYSIS WORTH READING: by Dick Morris, former political advisor to President Bill Clinton  If you happen to see the Bill Clinton five minute TV ad for Hillary in which he introduces the commercial by saying ... he wants to share some things we may not know about Hillary's background . .beware as I was there for most of their presidency and know them better than just about anyone, I offer a few corrections:Bill says: "In law school Hillary worked on legal services for the poor." The facts are: Hillary's main extra-curricular activity in law school was helping the Black Panthers, on trial in Connecticut for torturing and killing a federal agent.She went to court every day as part of a law student monitoring committee trying to spot civil rights violations and develop grounds for appeal.Bill says: "Hillary spent a year after graduation working on a children's rights project for poor kids."The facts are: Hillary interned with Bob Truehaft, the head of the California Communist Party. She met Bob when he represented the Panthers and traveled all the way to San Francisco to take an internship with him.Bill says: "Hillary could have written her own job ticket, but she turned down all the lucrative job offers." The facts are: She flunked the DC bar exam, yes, flunked, it is a matter of record, and only passed the Arkansas bar. She had no job offers in Arkansas , none, and only got hired by the University of Arkansas Law School at Fayetteville because Bill was already teaching there. She did not join the prestigious Rose Law Firm until Bill became Arkansas Attorney General and was made a partner only after he was elected Arkansas Governor.Bill says: "President Carter appointed Hillary to the Legal Services Board of Directors and she became its chairman." The facts are: The appointment was in exchange for Bill's support for Carter in his 1980 primary against Ted Kennedy. Hillary then became chairman in a coup in which she won a majority away from Carter's choice to be chairman.Bill says: "She served on the board of the Arkansas Children's Hospital." The facts are:  Yes she did. But her main board activity, not mentioned by Bill, was to sit on the Wal-Mart board of directors, for a substantial fee.She was silent about their labor and health care practices.Bill says: "Hillary didn't succeed at getting health care for all Americans in 1994 but she kept working at it and helped to create the Children's Health Insurance Program (CHIP) that provides five million children with health insurance."The facts are:  Hillary had nothing to do with creating CHIP. It was included in the budget deal between Clinton and Republican Majority Leader Senator Trent Lott. I know; I helped to negotiate the deal. The money came half from the budget deal and half from the Attorney Generals' tobacco settlement. Hillary had nothing to do with either source of funds.Bill says: "Hillary was the face of America all over the world." The facts are: Her visits were part of a program to get her out of town so that Bill would not appear weak by feeding stories that Hillary was running the White House.Her visits abroad were entirely touristic and symbolic and there was no substantive diplomacy on any of them.Bill says: "Hillary was an excellent Senator who kept fighting for children's and women's issues." The facts are: Other than totally meaningless legislation like changing the names on courthouses and post offices, she has passed only four substantive pieces of legislation.One set up a national park in Puerto Rico .A second provided respite care for family members helping their relatives through Alzheimer's or other conditions.And two were routine bills to aid 911 victims and responders which were sponsored by the entire NY delegation.Presently she is trying to have the US memorialize the Woodstock fiasco of 40 years ago.Here is what bothers me more than anything else about Hillary Clinton.She has done everything possible to weaken the President and our country (that's you and me!) when it comes to the war on terror.1. She wants to close GITMO and move the combatants to the USA where they would have access to our legal system. 2. She wants to eliminate the monitoring of suspected Al Qaeda phone calls to/from the USA . 3. She wants to grant constitutional rights to enemy combatants captured on the battlefield.4. She wants to eliminate the monitoring of money transfers between suspected Al Qaeda c ells and supporters in the USA .5. She wants to eliminate the type of interrogation tactics used by the military & CIA where coercion might be used when questioning known terrorists even though such tactics might save American lives.One cannot think of a single bill Hillary has introduced or a single comment she has made that would tend to strengthen our country in the War on Terror.But, one can think of a lot of comments she has made that weaken our country and makes it a more dangerous situation for all of us.Bottom line:  She goes hand in hand with the ACLU on far too many issues where common sense is abandoned.

Hillary Analysis by Dick Morris

If you happen to see the Bill Clinton’s five minute TV ad for Hillary in which he introduces the commercial by saying … he wants to share some things we may not know about Hillary’s background. Beware, as I was there for most of their presidency and know them better than just about anyone, I offer a few corrections.

Bill says: “In law school Hillary worked on legal services for the poor.”

The facts are: Hillary’s main extra-curricular activity in law school was helping the Black Panthers, on trial in Connecticut for torturing and killing a federal agent. She went to court every day as part of a law student monitoring committee trying to spot civil rights violations and develop grounds for appeal.

Bill says: “Hillary spent a year after graduation working on a children’s rights project for poor kids.”

The facts are: Hillary interned with Bob Truehaft, the head of the California Communist Party. She met Bob when he represented the Panthers and traveled all the way to San Francisco to take an internship with him.

Bill says: “Hillary could have written her own job ticket, but she turned down all the lucrative job offers.”

The facts are: She flunked the DC bar exam, yes, flunked, it is a matter of record, and only passed the Arkansas bar. She had no job offers in Arkansas, none, and only got hired by the University of Arkansas Law School at Fayetteville because Bill was already teaching there. She did not join the prestigious Rose Law Firm until Bill became Arkansas Attorney General and was made a partner only after he was elected Arkansas Governor.

Bill says: “President Carter appointed Hillary to the Legal Services Board of Directors and she became its chairman.”

The facts are: The appointment was in exchange for Bill’s support for Carter in his 1980 primary against Ted Kennedy. Hillary then became chairman in a coup in which she won a majority away from Carter’s choice to be chairman.

Bill says: “She served on the board of the Arkansas Children’s Hospital.”

The facts are: Yes she did. But her main board activity, not mentioned by Bill, was to sit on the Wal-Mart board of directors, for a substantial fee. She was silent about their labor and health care practices.

Bill says: “Hillary didn’t succeed at getting health care for all Americans in 1994 but she kept working at it and helped to create the Children’s Health Insurance Program (CHIP) that provides five million children with health insurance.”

The facts are: Hillary had nothing to do with creating CHIP. It was included in the budget deal between Clinton and Republican Majority Leader Senator Trent Lott. I know; I helped to negotiate the deal. The money came half from the budget deal and half from the Attorney Generals’ tobacco settlement. Hillary had nothing to do with either source of funds.

Bill says: “Hillary was the face of America all over the world.”

The facts are: Her visits were part of a program to get her out of town so that Bill would not appear weak by feeding stories that Hillary was running the White House. Her visits abroad were entirely touristic and symbolic and there was no substantive diplomacy on any of them.

Bill says: “Hillary was an excellent Senator who kept fighting for children’s and women’s issues.”

The facts are: Other than totally meaningless legislation like changing the names on courthouses and post offices, she has passed only four substantive pieces of legislation. One set up a national park in Puerto Rico. A second provided respite care for family members helping their relatives through Alzheimer’s or other conditions. And two were routine bills to aid 911 victims and responders which were sponsored by the entire NY delegation. Presently she is trying to have the US memorialize the Woodstock fiasco of 40 years ago.

Here is what bothers me more than anything else about Hillary Clinton. She has done everything possible to weaken the President and our country (that’s you and me!) when it comes to the war on terror.

1. She wants to close GITMO and move the combatants to the USA where they would have access to our legal system.

2. She wants to eliminate the monitoring of suspected Al Qaeda phone calls to/from the USA.

3. She wants to grant constitutional rights to enemy combatants captured on the battlefield.

4. She wants to eliminate the monitoring of money transfers between suspected Al Qaeda c ells and supporters in the USA.

5. She wants to eliminate the type of interrogation tactics used by the military & CIA where coercion might be used when questioning known terrorists even though such tactics might save American lives.

One cannot think of a single bill Hillary has introduced or a single comment she has made that would tend to strengthen our country in the War on Terror. But, one can think of a lot of comments she has made that weaken our country and makes it a more dangerous situation for all of us. Bottom line: She goes hand in hand with the ACLU on far too many issues where common sense is abandoned.

Do you recall the slime that was Whitewater, in which the Clintons dissembled and lied while their former business partners went to jail?  Do you remember Mrs. Clinton earning $100,000 in profit in 1979 on a $1,000 investment over the course of only 9 months in volatile cattle futures, about which she knew nothing, thanks to help from a highly placed Tyson Foods connection?  Tyson profited handsomely in Arkansas, with state loans and appointments.  We are to believe that Clinton studied the Wall Street Journal to achieve a feat against which the odds were one in 250 million.  

Do you remember the Rose Law Firm billing records that magically appeared in Mrs. Clinton’s White House office, years after they had been subpoenaed?  Or the death of Vince Foster under rather extraordinary and inexplicable circumstances, and the lies and cover-up that followed?  Do you recall that while testifying before congressional investigators as first lady, she answered “I don’t know” or “I don’t remember” 250 times?

When Obama first asked her to accept the position of SoS, she declined. After several meetings between the two, it became painfully evident that she accepted the job in exchange for Obama’s support in 2016.

During her tenure as Secretary of State, she broke the record for air miles logged on our dime and brought about one of the worst scandals in the history of the State Department. She’s virtually sent people to prison and has been the cause of numerous deaths, most recently the unprotected Americans in Benghazi. How could America survive with her as president?

    Good recap on the Hildabeast. The woman is a communist. Shivers if she were to be our next POTUS.

  2. Buck says:

    It seems, for the large majority of her supporters, the only thing that qualifies Hillary to be the next POTUS is her posession of a vagina. The remaining few support her for her Marxist/Socialist philosophies.

  3. Buck says:

    Whoops! Hit “Enter” too soon.

    Her election would be the strongest argument for repeal of the Nineteenth Amendment possible.

  4. Clyde says:

    Is there ANYTHING about the Clintons anywhere NEAR the truth? Putting aside the myriad scandals, of course. Good piece, and ANOTHER reason to NOT trust Dick Morris for Republican strategy.

  5. Mrs AL says:

    Don’t like admitting this, but if she is the nominee for 2016, I just might vote for any repub that gets the nomination. Her politics are nasty beyond the imagination.

  6. Garnet92 says:

    Great piece Kathy! I shudder to think of where we’d be if Hillary follows Obama to the WH. We, as a country, don’t deserve that. She is, as you say, a despicable person with few, if any, redeeming values.

    But wait! There’s more! She comes as a two-fer, we’d get Bill as First Horndog. A dual Presidency, just think of all of the damage they could do in tandem.

    I like Dick Morris. I don’t trust his predictions and he is an egotistical blowhard, but I find him entertaining. He always has an opinion and isn’t bashful about sharing it. He is useful in this role though – as a Clinton-basher.

    All of those things mentioned in his article will be dragged out again by the left to illustrate what a peach Hillary is and that we would be lucky to have her accept the post of POTUS. After all, she is even more qualified than the current organizer-in chief and look at how good he’s been for the country.

    • Kathy says:

      Thanks, Garnet. The idea of Bill as the First Man, or whatever the title will be, is gross. They already tarnished our house last time, I don’t want them moving back in.

      You’re right – they’ll drag all this up again and paint a rosy picture of her. Ugh. That’s gross too.

  7. tannngl says:

    Great! Thanks for sharing this and your comments.
    Wonder what Hil’s IQ is…

  8. Buck says:

    Well, Will Rogers said you could fool some of the people all of the time…

  9. CW says:

    Absolutely fantastic Hillary smack down by Dick Morris. I haven’t seen him for a long time. I assume he’s been kicked to the curb since failing on the presidential election predictions.

  10. Hardnox says:

    Kathy, the next post you should put up is the body count associated with the Clintons.

  11. Terry says:

    WHAM ! Great expose job by Morris. Thanks for posting this Kathy. I can’t wait to put it on FB so all my haters can see it.

    Expect Dick Morris to be disappeared before the next election.

  12. Eric says:

    Seriously? Do you post any old thing that you come across on the web or in your Inbox? Fifteen minutes of research would have been enough to untwist or debunk each of these vindictive claims. I’m not sure you can call anything Dick says these days ‘political analysis.’ Morris has an ax to grind with Bill and he’s taking it out on Hillary. He toasted his own credibility during the last presidential election such that even Fox News couldn’t stomach his ridiculous claims or so called analysis any more. Please exhibit a little bit of integrity with the stuff you post.

    • Kathy says:

      Thanks for the visit, Eric. It really doesn’t matter if Morris has an ax to grind with Bill, because this information is also available on any number of other sites as well.

      If you feel Hillary needs defending, then I suggest you use that fifteen minutes for research to refute this post. Back up your claims with proof the information is wrong.

      Anyone who sympathizes or supports her is in no position to talk about integrity.

      • Eric says:

        Kathy, with all due respect as I know the effort it takes to maintain any website, just because this post is available ‘on any number of other sites’ doesn’t mean it’s been vetted. Fact is, if this is your site and you intend to repost an article from another, that makes it YOUR responsibility to verify the veracity of the article before you put it up. And if you can’t then you should do the right thing and not repost it. If you do anyway, then you’re just propagating propaganda and you have lost all integrity as a web resource, a webmaster and as a person. Allow me to point you in the right direction. Watch the campaign video and see if you can find each of the references Morris cites. Then read Bernstein’s book on Hillary. Then read Morris’ own book on Hillary and his various columns and see if you can spot all the ways he contradicts himself in this article. But that’s likely too much effort when just reposting this is so much easier and quicker. Truth be damned. As an Independent, I have no particular sympathy or support for Hillary. My interests and loyalties lie solely in the truth and what’s best for country. And the truth is that NO person deserves to be judged, and no election decided, based on falsehoods. Let the truth determine the winners and the losers.

        • Kathy says:

          Eric, if you think the winners and losers are determined by the truth then you’ve been in a coma for the past 6 years. The truth hasn’t had a role in politics in many many years.

          But you want some truth? The truth is when you pay my salary then you get to tell me what to watch and what to read and how to post it, but until then, your opinion is just that.

          So you can stop preaching to me about what I should or should not post, because If you don’t like what you read here, then take your holier-than-thou attitude back to Chicago or where ever you came from and stop (speaking of) judging what we post.

          Right now I’m busy watching updates on scandal after scandal, worrying about the turmoil in Iraq and wondering if my grandchildren are going to have pray on a freakin’ rug with their butts in the air in the near future, so yeah, there’s a few things more important than your critique of my post on one of the key players in the whole Benghazi ordeal.

          You come in here, read one article that’s six months old and dare to question my integrity??? Shoo fly, now go away before I spam your scrawny little Hillary-loving butt. I’ve no time to waste on the likes of you arguing about integrity, whether it be Hillary’s or mine. Mine is intact – not so sure about hers or yours.

          • CW says:

            Don’t you just love it when people think that calling themselves “independent” somehow masks their blatant liberalism, Kathy? I hope you don’t mind my butting in but I spent the requested 15 minutes checking on Morris’ assertions and here’s what I found:

            On her association with the Black Panther trial:
            “Mrs. Clinton and another Yale law student were named as co-chairs of a committee “to monitor the trial, offer legal advice to demonstrators who got arrested, and help prevent violence at the May Day rally,” according to “Murder in the Model City” by Paul Bass and Douglas Rae.” http://www.nysun.com/national/hillary-clintons-radical-summer/66933/

            On her internship after law school:
            “In a life marked largely by political caution, one entry on Senator Clinton’s résumé stands out: her clerkship in 1971 at one of America’s most radical law firms, Treuhaft, Walker and Burnstein. One partner at the firm…was a Communist Party member at the time. Another partner…had left the party in 1958, several years after being called before the House Un-American Activities Committee and labeled as one of America’s most “dangerously subversive” lawyers. The Oakland-based firm was renowned for taking clients others rejected as too controversial, including Communists, draft resisters, and members of the African-American militant group known as the Black Panthers.”
            http://www.nysun.com/national/hillary-clintons-radical-summer/66933/

            On flunking the DC bar exam:
            “It’s true. In his biography of Hillary Clinton, former Watergate reporter Carl Bernstein notes that in the summer of 1973, 817 people took the Washington, D.C., bar exam; 551 of them passed. Hillary Rodham was not one of them. ‘For the first time in her life she had flamed out — spectacularly, given the expectations of others for her, and even more so her own,’ Bernstein wrote.”
            http://www.politifact.com/truth-o-meter/statements/2008/feb/15/chain-email/she-failed-then-followed-bill/

            On serving on the Walmart Board:
            True: http://www.motherjones.com/politics/2014/06/hillary-clinton-costco-walmart

            As for her appointment by Carter and her supposed involvement with the gov’t program, CHIP, I’m having trouble understanding why anyone would take pride in such “accomplishments” but in any event it’s going to be the word of the Clintons against Morris (I know who I’d bet on). Was she an “excellent” senator? We don’t need to do much research to make that kind of judgment. It wasn’t that long ago.

            My 15 minute investment vindicates Morris and if he was dropped by Fox it was because he missed on his presidential race predictions, not because he didn’t have his facts straight.

            • Kathy says:

              No ma’am, as a matter of fact I love it when you jump in, CW. And profound thanks for doing the 15 minutes worth of ‘research’ to unearth the truth, which was there from the beginning, but some were too lazy to do their own research and see that we’re not misrepresenting Killary.

              Was she an excellent Senator? When she was awake, she was mediocre at best.
