Early life and background
- Main article Hillary Clinton early life and career
As a young woman Hillary told classmates her ambition was to marry a Senator. Hillary was a solid Goldwater Republican in 1964; Goldwater was one of 6 Republicans who voted against the Republican party leadership and joined 21 Southern Democrat segregationists to vote against the Civil Rights Act of 1964. Hillary later repeatedly made the claim when speaking to African-American audiences she had been inspired by Dr. Martin Luther King since 1962. Goldwater, who was considered an extremist at the time Hillary supported him, responded to critics without denying the label, saying, "extremism in the defense of liberty is no vice". During Hillary's tenure at the White House and beyond, Hillary routinely calls all political opponents "extremists", essentially equating anyone with opposing opinions as terrorists.
Only when she met Bill in 1971 did her political views flower and she became a Democrat. The Clinton marriage is fashioned upon precepts of The Art of the Deal. She allowed him to chase any woman he saw fit, and he allowed her to run the Arkansas Governor's Mansion and White House as she saw fit. This was the deal Bill Clinton offered America, two for the price of one.
- Main article Hillary Clinton First Lady
Hillary Clinton was a colorless First Lady characterized by her drab personal appearance and dress, poor taste in interior design, rudeness and foul mouth mistreatment of subordinates-even toward those charged to protect her life with their own lives-and a ruthless a personal political ambition manifested in a failed Healthcare “reform” boondoggle ending in scandal.
As First Lady of Arkansas, Hillary and her law partners worked with clients looting depositor's money from Arkansas Savings and Loans which her husband regulated. She also pocketed large amounts of cash from complicated commodity future trading straddles. As the breadwinner of the Clinton family Hillary mocked and ridiculed stay-at-home mothers.
- Main article Hillary Clinton Senate career
Sen. Hillary Clinton led the fight on the floor of the United States Senate among Democrats to grant President George W. Bush authority to remove Saddam Hussein from Iraq. Hillary Clinton claimed, based upon her first hand experience over 8 years in the White House, that Saddam was in possession of Weapons of Mass Destruction. Sen. Bernie Sanders questioned her judgement, and he and his supporters were ostracized and ridiculed by the Democratic party establishment for doing so. 
The "inevitable" Hillary 2008
- Main article Hillary Clinton 2008 presidential campaign
The London Telegraph, for example, refers to [redacted] revelations into the Goldwater girl's "high mind". As the young woman at Wellesley College considered which of a "smorgasbord of personalities" she wanted to be, she asked him, "Can you be a misanthrope and still love or enjoy some individuals?". A misanthrope - a hater of humanity, is opposite of a philanthrope - a lover of humanity. But it also can be understood in a sexual sense; a misogynist is a woman-hater, and a misanthrope is a man-hater. Whatever its meaning, a college sophomore ought to understand it refers to an antisocial personality.
David Maraniss, while promoting a book based upon personal interviews during the Clinton's first term, broached the subject of the Clinton's remaining active in electoral politics beyond Mr. Clinton's presidency suggesting one ot the other, or both, running for the Senate. Impeachment made it improbable for Mr. Clinton, but when Hillary entered the fray in 2000, it was no secret their eyes were on the White House in 2008 and Hillary was declared "inevitable" by media surrogates and supporters. By 2007 when Barack Obama publicly challenged the notion, Clinton surrogates such as Media Matters once again begain revising the narrative to attack Obama and Clinton critics .
While it looked like an open convention was a possibility in 2008, eventually Hillary conceded. Even though she had won more primary votes, Obama outbid the Clinton's, giving more money to the superdelegates. Veteran campaign consultant Rich Galen noted that it is illegal to promise a federal job in exchange for doing something or not doing something; but in a closed door negotiation it may be legal for the Obama team to ask the Clinton team, "What would it take for you to release your delegates to us?". Hillary ultimately was appointed Secretary of State in order to add foreign policy experience to her resumé, a decided weakness of the two previous presidents.
Secretary of State
- Main article Hillary Clinton Secretary of State
In 2012 Hillary announced Syrian President Bashar Assad of must go and committed the United States to supporting an assortment of militias, arms traffickers, narco-terrorists, and jihadis the State Department and media labeled "moderate rebels". By the time Hillary resigned the State Department in 2013 to run for president, 300,000 Syrians had been killed in the uprising Hillary and Obama funded and encouraged. By 2016, Assad remained in power and his position had been strengthened with the support of two powerful allies, Vladimir Putin of Russia, and the Islamic Republic of Iran.
Libya had been under Muammar Gaddafi since 1969. The United States broke relations in 1981 and considered Libya a state sponsor of terror after a series incidents culminating in the mid-air bombing of Pan AM Flight 103 over Lockerbie Scotland in 1988. Libya had a WMD program. Western powers laid out a series of demands to be met to re-establish normal relations. By 1999, Muammar Gaddafi had a change of heart, as aged dictators sometimes do. Gaddafi began thinking about his legacy. Did he wish to be remembered as a killer, or as someone who really had the best interests of his people at heart. This is the actual substance of diplomacy and negotiation-the job of the Secretary of State, to pursuade lunatic dictators to think about such things rather than use force in every situation. Gaddafi began complying, step-by-step, with Western demands in order to be welcomed back within the "community of nations". Gaddafi renounced terrorism and gave up his WMD. He paid reparations to the families of victims of Flight 103; he publicly condemned the September 11 attacks . Trade was restored. Gaddafi became the model Western powers used to encourage other corrupt dictators such as Bashar Assad or Kim Jong-il that they could remain in power, enjoy trade, and live in peace with the international community.
Then Hillary Clinton became Secretary of State. Hillary Clinton divided the NATO treaty organization against itself to organize a coalition of a few member states. President Obama, who has always been reluctant to use force, was persuaded to come along. "Humanitarian concerns" were identified, and "our shared values". Gaddafi was brutally and inhumanely murdered, an eye tore out beforehand, sodomized with pipes and objects, and dragged behind vehicles while still alive in the name of "our shared values". Nuclear armed dictators such as Kim Jong-il witnessed how Gaddafi had been lied to and double-crossed by Western powers. Decades of negotiation were lost with him, his father, and his grandfather, to persuade North Korea to give up its nukes and WMD, return to the community of "civilized nations", and to live in peace and harmony by simply trusting the United States chief negotiator, the Secretary of State.
The brave new world Hillary built in Libya soon descended into chaos. The jihadi elements Hillary and Obama equipped and funded turned their U.S. supplied weapons on American territory, the Embassy at Benghazi.
The Libyan fiasco also stiffened the resolve of Vladimir Putin. Putin did not veto the fig leaf U.N. Security Council resolution Hillary and Obama sought to give an air of legitimacy. Once the duplicity and betrayal of the U.S. State Department under Hillary Clinton became obvious, Putin moved to shore up defense of his own allies-Russians residing in the Ukraine and Crimea, and Syrian President Bashar Assad.
Hillary was the subject of a Congressional investigation after it had become evident that the deaths of four Americans during the Islamic terrorist attack on the U.S. consulate in Benghazi were caused by incompetence and malfeasance.
The "inevitable" Hillary 2016 sequel
- Main article United States presidential election, 2016
Bill Clinton's deregulation of Wall Street has been roundly credited with having caused the Great Recession. In something of an undignified moment, while instructing a group of Arizona partisans how to respond to claims that "the great recession was caused by too much regulation", Hillary was rather unpresidential as she began barking like a dog, ARF ARF ARF ARF.
The truth comes out
Speaking to a group of Democratic loyalists in Massachusetts in 2014, Hillary indulged some of the old-fashioned unprovoked, pointless partisanship and divisiveness well known to the victims of Clintonism. Hillary Clinton alleged, "Don't let anyone tell you that corporations and businesses create jobs."
After Congressional Democrats voted down President Obama's proposal to create a NAFTA-like Pacific Trade Zone with China, Japan, and about a dozen other countries, to no one one surprise Hillary Clinton once again flip-flopped to garner headlines in support of what public opinion polls were saying. CNN reported Hillary had spoken out in favor of the Trans Pacific Partnership (TPP) no less than 45 times prior, an issue which supposedly she now opposes.
No penny pinching Superdelegates this time
On the issue of the controversial, biased online encyclopedia, Wikipedia, Clinton sent a message of congratulations that was read at the opening session of the Wikimania 2012 conference in Washington, DC.
