Florida GOP Trolls Hillary Clinton at Her Own Event, Using Her Own Supporters
Polls may say Clinton is dishonest but at least her supporters are honest about her accomplishments.
When Democratic presidential frontrunner Hillary Clinton had an event in South Florida earlier this month, he Republican Party of Florida (RPOF) sent a staffer armed with a video camera and a devastatingly damaging question: “Can you name her accomplishments?”
On Wednesday, RPOF released a YouTube video showing Hillary supporters enthusiastically voicing their loyalty to her, but then stumbling when asked to name her top two accomplishments as either Secretary of State or when she represented New York in the Senate.
“To be honest with you, I’m not too sure,” says one supporter. “I couldn’t tell you,” says another.
“Ummm, well, I’ll be pretty honest with you, I didn’t follow her very much when she was involved with those positions,” says the third Hillary fan shown in the video compelled to “honest” about being unable to name any of her accomplishments.
The very few specific answers were not incredibly helpful, with one supporter mentioning that while he felt she had improved women’s rights in the Middle East, the “worst thing” she had done as Secretary of State was “Benghazi,” while his friend smirks and agrees.
Another mentioned that Clinton was a lawyer, which was “super hard to achieve.” Clinton may not have flunked the bar exam multiple times like former Florida Governor Charlie Crist, but the overwhelming number of attorneys who are represented in American elected offices makes this an underwhelming argument for Clinton.
Humorously, the same supporter who gave Clinton credit for being a lawyer also gave her kudos for being First Lady. “Being the President’s wife is hard as well,” she says, a comment that rings especially true when considering Bill Clinton’s…shall we say…extracurricular activities?
This isn’t the first time that this particular gimmick has been tried — PJ Media’s Michelle Fields did a similar, viciously effective video back in May 2014 — but there is still something incredibly fun about trolling Hillary Clinton using her own supporters at her own event.
With Vice President Joe Biden deciding to sit out the 2016 contest, and Bernie Sanders refusing to directly attack Clinton at the last Democratic debate, Clinton is solidifying her grasp on her party’s presidential nomination, and this RPOF video will most certainly not be the last attack of this type against her. In a statement released by RPOF Chairman Blaise Ingoglia with the video, he criticized her political record as “abundant in flip-flops, personal conveniences, and political expediency.”
Clinton’s “resume clearly lacks a successful record of accomplishments, leadership, and transparency. Our nation deserves an effective leader that is ready to build a healthy, robust economy that creates opportunity and growth for all Americans,” said Ingoglia.

“To be honest, I didn’t pay attention to her in that great detail, but I assume that she did a really good job to clean up the system.”
Only narrative matters apparently.
Results? nah, f*$k those things.
As a country we are beyond hope.
“Accomplishments? We don’t need no stinkin’ accomplishments!”
Democrats don’t vote for the person or their qualifications. They vote for Democrats, period. Sometimes the identity is the qualification for them, as with Obama & Hillary. But it’s not a matter that concerns them very much.
This is the inevitable result of making registering and voting so easy any disinterested dolt can do it – so they do. And to be sure, we badger the hell out of them until they do. It’s insane.
When people who don’t understand issues vote, it does NOT serve the Republic or even the concept of representative government. Empowering the apathetic and ignorant to register and vote just keeps the Democratic Party competitive.
Ah, yes. HRCackle’s two accomplishments: being a woman and an SNL skit.
Her record supplies the smirks and grins.
Humanity is doomed. Apparently evolution has reached the point at which it has begun to collapse upon itself.
Behold our public ( school) indoctrination system !
Her two biggest accomplishments?
Labia Minora and Labia Majora?
It’s especially hard being the First Lady when your husband has humiliated you with his infidelity. Standing by her man as every gory detail is brought to light for the world to take note of.
It is so hard being the First Lady when there is that dilemma as to have to choose between “standing by your man” or your own “cutthroat” political ambitions. Especially being that Hillary claims to be a feminist. Then again, being that she is an admirer of Saul Alinsky, he reciprocating his admiration of her as well, she understands that the end justifies the means, at any cost.
Maybe a full report on the Clinton scandal, resulting in his impeachment for lying under oath, would make for a good read for those young ladies. Would they “stand by their man” like Hillary, “I am just like you!”, the role model. The brave warrior for women’s rights, fighting that war on women (because she’s just like you), young ladies.
Bubba, her devoted husband, standing by his woman with his cigar, says, “Ladies, you get two for the price of one. Vote Hillary! Now give Bubba a big hug.”
Or would they kick Bubba to the curb in that obviously, Hillary has no desire to. She has big plans! She don’t feel no ways tired. “Bake cookies? We don’t need no stinking cookies. We got plans!”
A vote for Hillary, “the worker bee”, is a vote for Bubba.
Yes, it’s so hard being First Lady. But it is even harder on the women who have had the misfortune to cross paths with Bubba and his little woman (and who will tell you that she is just like you.)
There is a word to describe a woman who willingly degrades herself for money/power: WHORE
Paul, you are being a little tough on whores. At least most are honest.
Agreed- “whores” (or, as i like to consider them, “honest women”) are straightforward with their desires and respond to the needs of the other without deception, manipulation or unspoken agenda.
I respect the whore as honest in their work, unlike the politician.
clarification: it is unfair of me to vfail to acknowledge the man-whores of the world.
Forgive me, Duece Bigelow.
And Hillary has been handsomely rewarded for her efforts.
In giving a read to Hillary’s thesis on Saul Alinsky, I wonder how those voters, who stand by her, would address her colorful language:
“What Alinsky means by this “feeling for and with the people” is simply how much one person really cares about people unlike himself. He illustrates the feeling by a series of examples in which he poses questions such as: So you are a white, native-born Protestant. Do you like people? He then proceeds to demonstrate how, in spite of protestations, the Protestant (or the Irish Catholic or the Jew or the Negro or the Mexican) only pays lip service to the idea of equality. This technique of confrontation in Alinsky’s writing effectively involves most of his readers who will recognize in themselves at least one of the characteristics he denounces. Having confronted his readers with their hypocrisy, Alinsky defines the American Radical as “…that unique person who actually believes what he says…to whom the common good is the greatest value…who genuinely and completely believes in mankind….”
In also reading her thesis, the coal miners are addressed. All those have latched onto Mother Jones, “the miners’ angel”, to push their agenda on those young impressionable minds, would roast her in that she was no feminist.
“Yet, despite her radicalism, Mother Jones was no feminist. She did not support the suffrage movement, arguing that “you don’t need a vote to raise hell.” Though she was correct when she pointed out that the women of Colorado had the vote and failed to use it to prevent the appalling conditions that led to labor violence, this should not have negated women’s inherent right to a voice in government from one who had also frequently quoted the Declaration of Independence. Indeed, Mother Jones even argued that suffragists were naïve women who unwittingly acted as duplicitous agents of class warfare; she wrote in 1925 (after national suffrage had been achieved) that “the plutocrats have organized their women. They keep them busy with suffrage and prohibition and charity.”
More significantly, Mother Jones organized working class women only in auxiliary statues and adamantly maintained that—except when the union called—a woman’s place was in the home. Her ideals reflected her Catholic heritage, for she believed that working men should be paid well enough so that women could devote themselves exclusively to motherhood. It is not surprising, therefore, that Mother Jones was conspicuously absent from the leadership of the great strikes that involved large numbers of women, for example, the 1909 Garment Industry Strike and the Lawrence Textile Strike of 1912. ”
How long before we get the lecture on how sexist the word “accomplishments” is? How men look to mark their territory and plant flags on milestones where women understand the value of the journey?
Perhaps the word “microaggression” will even make an appearance.
Hey, here is an accomplishment of Hillary’s. She accomplished throwing her self-respect under the bus. No wonder that she and Huma share a bond.
“Huma, just stop it! Not another word about Anthony and your feelings. You know I can’t stand whiney women so suck it up and hold your head high. I took one for the team, I paid my debts. So do it for the village, Huma. Just do it! Self-respect? We don’t need no stinking self-respect. Huma, do you hear me? Now repeat after me, I am woman, hear me roar!”
Those info voters don’t know that she was fired from the Watergate Committee for fraud.
They attempted to discredit that back in 2008 but in light of what has surfaced since, especially her conduct regarding the case involving a 12 year old, lends credibility, IMO, to Zeifman’s statements.
Going back to 2008,
“This guy is impressive and extremely logical and well spoken to me
I have read his book Without Honor:Crimes of Camelot and the Impeachment of Richard Nixon
It is quite a book. Zeifman was the chief counsel to the Democrats for the Nixon impeachment and had some very good reason to dislike the unprofessional actions of pipsqueak Hillary
I have also heard Zeifman interviewed on local radio. He is no Huffington.
He has to be labeled a ‘kook’ to discredit his very credible witness to the Nixon impeachment, an impeachment he did not disagree with.
The book is an excellent clear headed introduction to big politics. Interestingly, it is on the reading list at the Richard Nixon Library and Foundation.
Zeifman opposed the war in Yugoslavia. It is a multicultural mix who supported and opposed that war

Blizzard of Lies
Speaking of Yugoslavia, it was Bill Clinton who bombed innocent Serbs. Part of what was never addressed was that they were coming under attack by those they had no love for. They remembered well the genocide that transpired at the largest death camp in Yugoslavia, Jasenova. Thousands of Serbs, Jews, Romas, Christians and anti-facists were slaughtered. Some would call Jasenovac: The cruelest death camp of WW2. Arafat’s uncle, the Grand Mufti of Jerusalem, figured into it.
“Under Croatian decrees, Jews were compelled to wear yellow Star-of-David armbands and back patches marked with a “Z” for Zidov, the Croatian word for Jew. Muslims plundered and decimated the Great Sephardic Synagogue in Sarajevo and the centuries-old synagogue in Dubrovnik. When Muslim families were moved out of their villages near the battle lines, the Ustasha evicted Jews from their homes so the Croatian Muslims could take their place. When Jews fled the November 1941 mass roundups in Sarajevo, preparatory to planned extermination, a number of them escaped only by disguising themselves under Muslim veils.
At the same time, many of the Jews who did survive the Jew-hunts did so by appealing to merciful neighbors in the Muslim quarter that took them in and hid them until they could escape safely. Many Muslims in Sarajevo rejected the Bosniak Ustasha horror and tried – in vain – to protest to their co-religionists.
Serbs suffered enormously. As Serbs were being forcibly converted to Catholicism, some 450 Serbian Orthodox churches were demolished and their religious icons defiled. Orthodox priests were gruesomely tortured and their families shipped to concentration camps where they were subjected to every inhumanity.
* * * * *
Pavelić declared early on, “This is now the Ustasha and Independent State of Croatia. It must be cleansed of all Serbs and Jews. There is no room for any of them here. Not a stone upon a stone will remain of what once belonged to them.” He later said, “The Jews will be liquidated within a very short time.”
To this end, more than 20 Ustasha concentration camps were established for the killing process, manned by combined Catholic and Muslim forces. The most notorious of these camps was the hellish complex known as Jasenovac, considered by many to be more sadistic than Auschwitz.”
And she did fail the DC bar. Sure not multiple times like JFK Jr. but once is still pretty embarrassing for The Smartest Woman Ever.
Well, was she ever a good community organizer?
You don’t need a good record to be president, just good press.
Those young voters have also been fed the line that there was genocide in Kosovo and the great humanitarian, Bill Clinton, had good reason to bomb innocent men, women and children in Serbia. They were our friends during WW2 in the fight against Nazi, Germany.
They being fed the same line that just like Iraq, we did the same thing to Serbia. All over Iraq there are mass graves, Saddam’s atrocities are well documented. He used chemical weapons against the Kurds. However when Bill Clinton, Hillary no doubt being in the know, bombed the Serbians:
“We received this article from El Pais (The Country), a mainstream Spanish magazine, is most important. For months we’ve been barraged with stories claiming Serbs killed thousands of ethnic Albanians and dumped them in mass graves in Kosovo. Recently I did an internet search for newspaper articles, appearing in the past 90 days, and including the words ‘Kosovo’ and ‘mass grave.’ The report came back: ‘More than 1000 – too many to list.’ I had to limit the search to articles in the NY Times and even then came up with 80, nearly one a day.
It has been a giant air balloon of anti-Serbian publicity, but now comes the pin: Spanish forensic experts, just back from Northern Kosovo where, they were told, they would have to inspect the worst Serbian atrocities, found no mass graves and no evidence of torture.”
Fast forward to Libya. Hillary is at the helm as SOS and Libya is bombed for “humanitarian” reasons. Despite the claims that a genocide was under way, Obama stating something about witnessing 1000s of people killed per day, mass graves, and yet:
“The intelligence community gathered no specific evidence of an impending genocide in Libya in spring 2011, undercutting Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton’s primary argument for using the U.S. military to remove Col. Moammar Gadhafi from power, an event that has left his country in chaos, according to officials with direct knowledge of the dispute.”
Reagan took of Ghadaffi, swiftly and surely, upon the news regarding the murders of US servicemen in a German nightclub that was bombed. Ghadaffi learned his lesson well.
Hillary and Bubba? Two peas in a pod. Kosovo- no genocide. Libya- no genocide. However, that didn’t stop the bombing done under the false pretenses- that it was done for humanitarian reasons. The dynamic duo, Hill and Bill. They care because they are just like us. Meh, not so much, though, for those who actually were the victims of genocide. But don’t tell the media that. Mum’s the word.
Here’s an accomplishment of Hillary’s. She earned top honors at Bill Clinton’s SOS, Madeline Albright’s school of foreign diplomacy. Albright had her war on Serbia and Hillary was a fast learner. There being anti-American sentiment to be generated, the burning of the US flag and far reaching implications on the agenda. But where? The mid east! She came, she saw and they died. Hillary can’t name all her accomplishments because she is still a little rattled after having dodged that firefight in Bosnia. Of course there was a protest in Benghazi or was that… oh never mind, it was a long time ago so what does it matter now? Being the First Lady is HARD!
“The inability to face critique adequately and with dignity. This might be the right description of Albright’s reaction, which followed, after the members of “Friends of Serbs in Kosovo” presented her the posters with pictures of the Kosovo telecommunications, first children’s victim of the so called “humanitarian bombing” 3 years old Milica Rakić, Serbian refugees from the Croatia’s Krajina and militant Muslim volunteers in the Bosnian army. “This is your work as well, madam” the activists said while asking her to sign the posters. Madeleine Albright was noticeably disconcerted, agitated, and upset, refused to sign the posters and started yelling: “Get out”, “Disgusting Serbs” and “You are war criminals” and ordered the activists to leave the Luxor bookstore.
“Madeleine Albright pushed through the bombing of the Federal Republic of Yugoslavia in 1999 by NATO aircraft without a UN mandate for her office of the foreign minister of the USA, supported the jihad in Bosnia in 1992-1995, manipulated with the facts about the Srebrenica massacre and strongly personally profited by the privatization of the telecommunications in Kosovo. She is supposed to bear the consequences of her political decisions and admit her responsibility for the bloodshed and thousands of civil victims.” Explains one of the participants, Daniel Huba, why he used the personal presence of Albright in Prague and brought her the poster to sign.”
As was the case with Madeline, Hillary’s accomplishment? Not being taken to task. Among many accomplishments that she wants to achieve as CIC? Shoot down Russian jets. Putin certainly won’t mind. Especially after the bang up job that Albright did as Bill’s top diplomat. Bombing Serbia? ” What does it matter now? That was a long time ago! “
