Hil­lary’s ac­tions to­ward women, chil­dren speak louder than words

Maryland Independent - - Community Forum -

Dur­ing the de­bate be­tween Don­ald Trump and Hil­lary Clin­ton on Oct. 9, Trump’s theme was that “Hil­lary has bad judg­ment.” Mean­while, Clin­ton beat the drum that she cares about women and chil­dren.

Trump was cor­rect. Hil­lary does have bad judg­ment in ev­ery area she has touched in­clud­ing health care, the econ­omy, na­tional se­cu­rity and im­mi­gra­tion.

Hil­lary, how­ever, was not cor­rect in her claim to be the cham­pion of women and chil­dren. Here’s why:

As Trump pointed out, when sev­eral women came for­ward to say that Bill Clin­ton had sex­u­ally mo­lested them, Hil­lary called them “bim­bos” and dis­cred­ited, un­der­mined and smeared their rep­u­ta­tions.

As Trump also men­tioned, Hil­lary suc­cess­fully de­fended a child rapist. Trump didn’t go into de­tails. But Hil­lary’s client was, in 1975, a 41-year-old drifter who raped a 12-year-old girl on the side of des­o­late Arkansas road. Hil­lary blocked foren­sic ev­i­dence that linked her client to the crime and ac­cused the girl of seek­ing out older men while de­mand­ing that she un­dergo a gru­el­ing court-or­dered psy­chi­atric ex­am­i­na­tion. Af­ter the case, Hil­lary, on video­tape, all but ad­mit­ted her client was guilty, as she laugh­ingly said that her “faith in poly­graphs” was “for­ever de­stroyed” be­cause her client was able to pass a lie de­tec­tor test.

Trump also dis­cussed the in­ner cities where ev­ery­one — in­clud­ing women and chil­dren — are stuck in poverty, job­less­ness, low ed­u­ca­tion and un­safe neigh­bor­hoods. What has Hil­lary done for them ex­cept so­licit them for their votes?

Trump could have men­tioned two ad­di­tional ar­eas in which Hil­lary has shown she is no friend to women or chil­dren (or to any­one but her­self, for that mat­ter).

Hil­lary is a staunch pro-abor­tion can­di­date and be­lieves that ev­ery mother should have the right to have her un­born baby mur­dered. The baby, of course, who has no say, is the ul­ti­mate vic­tim. But stud­ies have also shown that women who un­dergo abor­tions of­ten suf­fer guilt and emo­tional tor­ment for a life­time.

Hil­lary also turns a blind eye to the Mid­dle Eastern cul­ture of sub­ju­gat­ing and abus­ing women and wel­comes cash from these coun­tries. The Daily Caller re­ported, “Over­all, the Clin­ton Foun­da­tion has re­ceived up­wards of $85 mil­lion in do­na­tions from five Per­sian Gulf states and their mon­archs.” Na­tional Se­cu­rity An­a­lyst Pa­trick Poole said, “These regimes are buy­ing ac­cess. You’ve got the Saudis. You’ve got the Kuwaitis, Oman, Qatar and the UAE. There are mas­sive con­flicts of in­ter­est. It’s be­yond com­pre­hen­sion.”

Hil­lary might ac­tu­ally be­lieve in her own warped mind that she cares about women and chil­dren. But her ac­tions speak oth­er­wise.
