Hillary - Lies, Deceit, Murder (Part 1)
By Raymond Shipley
Over the past year or so we've seen likely the most interesting and controversial presidential season in known history. Although I usually like to keep essays short and sweet, this particular one turned out to be longer than expected; therefore, I decided to split this one up into three parts. So, let's begin...
We are finally moving on to the main event in this presidential election season, so buckle up as we take the gloves off for DNC nominee, Hillary Clinton. It's no secret she reeks of corruption, and the law is seemingly beneath her; but how deep does it go? Are we talking just a little dishonesty and the occasional task of helping rapists get away with their crimes only to laugh about it later? Sadly, no. Mrs. Clinton epitomises everything that has worked to destroy all that for which this country was established.
The United States of America was founded on the principle that free men could govern themselves better than an aristocracy, and no man was above the law. We were to be a country in which the common man, all created equal, had the ability to rise above his station of birth to whatever heights his talents, abilities and will could take him, and our Founding Fathers set the rule of Law above the rule of men. In fact, the Declaration of Independence calls out dozens of acts of lawlessness committed by King George III. And yet Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton is currently under investigation by the FBI in criminal violation for the use of a private email server for official government purposes, and her wanton disregard for this nation's laws and founding principles. By her own admission her acts are indictable, and as such she should be "disqualified from holding any office under the United States."
U.S. Code, Title 18, Part I, Chapter 101, Section 2071, Paragraph a: “Whoever willfully and unlawfully conceals, removes, mutilates, obliterates, or destroys, or attempts to do so, or, with intent to do so takes and carries away any record, proceeding, map, book, paper, document, or other thing, filed or deposited with any clerk or officer of any court of the United States, or in any public office, or with any judicial or public officer of the United States, shall be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than three years, or both.”
Paragraph b: Whoever, having the custody of any such record, proceeding, map, book, document, paper, or other thing, willfully and unlawfully conceals, removes, mutilates, obliterates, falsifies, or destroys the same, shall be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than three years, or both; and shall forfeit his office and be disqualified from holding any office under the United States.
Hillary Clinton is guilty by any measure of the standard, but it doesn't stop there. When Bill Clinton became president one of his first acts was to fire the White House Travel Office after having served 7 presidents in order to hire personal friends to take over the business, which happened to be worth over $31 billion annually at the time. The act was so random and sudden it prompted an investigation by the FBI, DOJ GAO, Oversight Committee and the White Water Independent Council. The Clintons claimed the dismissal was due to financial misdeeds; however, the employees were cleared on all counts. Although Hillary was a key figure in the firing of the employees Clinton swore under oath she was not involved. These statements were found to be "factually false" by the Independent Council. The Clintons were forced to remove their friends and rehire the former employees.
In 1993 close friend of Hillary Clinton, Vince Foster, died under suspicious circumstances. He had been alleged to have been involved in several Clinton scandals, and before law enforcement could investigate his death Clinton staff members illegally removed boxes of documents, including those on both the Whitewater scandal and the aforementioned Travelgate. The Whitewater fraud case, to which Hillary was a central figure, marked the first time in US history the First Lady was ever subpoenaed by a Grand Jury. Billing records integral to the case were reported lost by Clinton, which were likely stolen from Vince Foster's office the night of his death. These "missing" documents reappeared in the Clinton residence shortly after their acquittal, covered in Hillary's fingerprints. She fell under suspicion of obstruction of justice; however, Susan McDougal refused to testify against Clinton and was sent to prison as a result. She was later pardoned by Hillary's husband Bill Clinton. Likewise, 15 Clinton friends were convicted of 40 federal crimes related to Whitewater, and the investigation cost taxpayers $145 million.
Then there was Cattlegate, an investment fraud committed by Hillary that resulted in a $5,000 investment returning approximately $490,000. When she was investigated for inside trading Hillary refused to release her tax returns and insisted she made all investment decisions herself. In actuality, the investments were made by James Blair through the brokerage Refco. Blair was outside counsel for Tyson Foods, the largest employer in the state of Arkansas, and it is perceived Hillary received preferential treatment and huge financial gains in return for influence with then governor Bill Clinton. Refco was investigated and paid the largest fines in the exchange's history. The Clinton legacy is replete with instances of backroom deals and blackmail.
