The Clintons’ Baggage is Finally Catching up to Them

The Clintons’ Baggage is Finally Catching up to Them

Hillary can’t have it both ways.

Hillary Clinton has a big problem. As a candidate, she wants to be seen as an advocate for women but her husband’s past and her defense of it conflicts with that message. She simply can’t have it both ways.

To make matters worse, some of Bill Clinton’s accusers are starting to come forward.

Mark Hensch and Jonathan Easley report at The Hill:

Bill Clinton rape accuser: Hillary ‘tried to silence’ me

A woman who publicly accused former President Bill Clinton of raping her in 1978 is resurrecting her claims on social media.

“I was 35 years old when Bill Clinton, Ark. Attorney General raped me,” Juanita Broaddrick tweeted Wednesday.

“Hillary tried to silence me,” she wrote of Bill Clinton’s wife and the current Democratic presidential front-runner. “I am now 73…it never goes away.”

The Hill reached a woman by phone in Van Buren, Ark., on Wednesday who identified herself as Broaddrick. She said the Twitter account is hers.

Broaddrick said she set the account up in 2009 but hasn’t used it much since because she’s unfamiliar with Twitter.

The former nursing home administrator alleged in 1999 that Bill Clinton raped her in Little Rock, Ark., during his 1978 gubernatorial campaign.

In a brief interview, Broaddrick, who said she retired after selling her nursing home business in 2008, said she’s decided to play a more visible role heading into 2016.

According to Hillary Clinton’s own words, Ms. Broaddrick deserves to be believed.

The world has changed since the 1990’s and the old rules no longer apply. Big media can no longer protect the Clintons by ignoring a story.

In her new column at USA Today, Kirsten Powers points out a double standard that’s becoming obvious to everyone:

A tale of two Bills: Cosby, Clinton and predatory men

Much has changed since Bill and Hillary Clinton were swept into the White House amidst sordid tales about the Arkansas governor’s extra-marital sex life.

Back then, a senior campaign aide (Betsey Wright) on a Democratic campaign could utter the phrase “bimbo eruptions” to demean women claiming to have had an affair with Bill Clinton. Today, such utterances would be rightly deemed unequivocally sexist.

It was a time when a top Democratic loyalist (James Carville) unabashedly sneered at Paula Jones’ allegations of unwanted sexual advances by then-Gov. Clinton with the infamous quip, “If you drag a hundred dollar bill through a trailer park, you never know what you’ll find.” Most famously, there was a young intern named Monica Lewinsky smeared by a senior White House aide (Sidney Blumenthal) as a “stalker.” Blumenthal reportedly also told journalists that the 49-year-old president of the United States had been “the victim of a predatory and unstable sexually demanding young woman,” age 22.

Read the rest here.

This issue is not going away.

If Hillary Clinton wants to hold the highest office in the land, it is completely fair for these questions to be asked with an expectation that she will answer them.

I hope ther’s an enterprising reporter out there who can track down Eileen Wellstone and other women who say they were assaulted. Then they should join together for a press conference, as the Cosby victims did.

Trump just hung Bill Clinton around Hillary’s neck like a 300 pound albatross. Very deft move and something the cowardly Republicans have been afraid to do for whatever reason.

    Between travelgate, the soon-to-be release film about Benghazi and this, there’s plenty of rope for Hill’s campaign to hang itself.

    But there’s nothing ‘deft’ or heroic when a Constitutionally illiterate, crony capitalist, narcissistic demagogue consistently neutralizes Democrat’s auto-destruct newscycle but habitually creating diversionary noise.

    It’s blundering and just what the media needs to deliver Hillary quietly to the finish line.

    “Even fools are thought wise if they keep silent, and discerning if they hold their tongues.” Proverbs 17:28

      ““Even fools are thought wise if they keep silent, and discerning if they hold their tongues.” Proverbs 17:28”

      You might want to give that a second read.

I would be lying if I didn’t confess to deriving somr satisfaction from seeing the venal, lawless, self-serving and deceitful crone, Hilliavelli, hoisted on her own sanctimonious petard.

Let me reiterate something I said:
It is important to go after Bill the sexual predator and not Bill the pervert.

LIV’s don’t care about Bill the pervert. They do care about Bill the predator and his entourage’s enabling of his predations and Hillary’s
hypocrisy

I keep hoping that FBI director (and very tall) Jim Comey will charge Hillary. And see our AG twist in knots trying to figure out how to protect her.

    Well, you WILL keep hoping a guy who can’t legally charge anyone with anything will do what his job won’t allow.

    You may want to hope that some prosecutor will file charges based on the FBI’s investigation.

      PhillyGuy in reply to Ragspierre. | January 7, 2016 at 12:01 pm

      Typical antagonistic response from LI’s resident jerk.

        He’s a blunt lawyer…arguing is what they do for a living.

        And he’s right…The FBI can only arrest someone and they won’t do so unless an attorney is while to bring charges against the person. Unfortunately, there are too few federal criminal attorneys with integrity in the system right now.

    Sammy Finkelman in reply to PhillyGuy. | January 7, 2016 at 12:21 pm

    No, Hillary Clinton will be an unindicted co-conspirator.

    ConradCA in reply to PhillyGuy. | January 7, 2016 at 9:20 pm

    What’s needed is for the FBI to leak the results of their investigation which calls for the prosecution of Hillary for over a thousand felonies. Think she could lie her way into office after that?

“She simply can’t have it both ways.”

History would say she certainly can. The question is, can she continue to have it both ways in a more media-diverse time.

But Trump, not so much the rise of new media, is the real reason she appears to be vulnerable on the issue. He, no one else, took the offensive (while cleverly feigning to play defense) when and where the GOP never dared. Now others are following.

“Today, such utterances would be rightly deemed unequivocally sexist.” Well, not necessarily. Not if they’re uttered by powerful Democrats.

And Cosby would probably be treated with more indulgence if he hadn’t made statements over the years challenging the victim-culture that Democrats have promoted in the black community.

    Kirsten Powers seems to have forgotten that the people who said “so what?” to Bill’s abuse of women were often the very same people who had recently expressed horror and outrage over a tasteless joke that Clarence Thomas was alleged to have uttered in Anita Hill’s presence and his alleged efforts to persuade her to date him.

“She simply can’t have it both ways.”

She’s had nothing but since 1992.

Concerning that “expectation that she will answer them.”, I sincerely hope no one is holding their breath on this.

Karma is such a great thing! What goes around will return. The Clintons had every opportunity to face these problems and to change their ways and they chose to vilify the victims which allowed Bill to continue to behave as a predator. They have sown these seeds and and will get the reward that goes along with it. Hopefully it is a retirement plan in a prison for both of them.

    Radegunda in reply to showtime8. | January 7, 2016 at 1:50 pm

    You may have too much confidence in earthly justice. Did Ted Kennedy go to prison? Will Lois Lerner or John Koskinen? Will Barack Obama or Eric Holder ever be held to account for their assaults on the law and the Constitution?

Details of Bill Clinton’s adventures on the Lolita Express would make for some very interesting headlines – most likely being held for release at just the right moment.

The one thing that is so glaring is that the Clinton’s get away with what pretty much most Anericans could not and that is the rub. Bill Cosby is accused and charged publically and Bill Clinton is given a free pass. Hillary and the servers is another part of the hypocricy of the political establishment.

Whatever people say negative about Trump three really is nothing to say positive to say about the Clintons.

Hillary has more blood on her hands than Lady MacBeth. She as well as Bill deserve all the bad press that comes their way.
