TEXAS DEMOCRATS WANT WHO ?
Remember that old joke about how can you tell if a career politician is lying? Answer: Her lips are moving.
In the recent confusion of exactly what Hillary actually stands for I came up with this:
o Coverup of Use of personal email for official business ALL in violation of Federal Records Act.
o Wall Street speaking fees were ok because she was not running for office; THEN after running, their donations are ok.
o Against combat troops in Mideast; BUT special forces ok.
o Hawk for invading Iraq, urged regime change in Libya, and Syria; THEN, Oops, Iraq was a ‘mistake.
o Wants ‘no-fly’ zone in Syria. So US jets will or would have shot down Russian jets supporting Assad? o For, THEN against private prisons. o “Proud to be a moderate,” and THEN a “progressive.”
o SUPER DUPER ‘Embellishments’ to her Resume: “Corkscrew landing, running through sniper fire, life on line, just like our warriors.” THEN, “Oops, did not happen.” o Against, THEN for gay marriage. o For Hillarycare, THEN against Obamacare, THEN for Obamacare, THEN against Universal Healthcare.
o Against Glass-Steagall, and absolutely NOT influenced by $1.8 million from 8 speeches to bankers.
o Attack on Single Payer Healthcare absolutely NOT influenced by $2.8 million from 13 speeches to health industry. o For Keystone Pipeline, THEN against it. o Pro-fracking. o For NAFTA, and TPP, saying “TPP IS THE GOLD STANDARD IN TRADE AGREEMENTS,” THEN against TPP.
o For outsourcing to India, THEN US job loss is an issue.
o Opposed entry of kids escaping murderous regimes in Central America (“Send them back as a message”), THEN such children should have access to lawyers and not be held in family prisons.
o Opposed drivers licenses for undocumented, THEN supports them.
o Against illegals, need stronger borders, stop hiring of illegals; THEN supports Dreamers.
o She lobbied Congress to expand the drug war and mass incarceration in ways that we continue to live with today, and that have a significantly more harmful impact on black and brown people than white people; BUT now we have more people in jail than any other country in the world, including China with four times our population
o Touts her role in Welfare reform: “By the time Bill and I left the White House, welfare rolls had dropped 60 percent.” BUT the 60% drop was due to a reduction in federal benefits to those living in poverty, many of them working poor.
o Clinton Family / Foundation accepted cash from 20 foreign governments, while Hillary’s State Department approved $151 billion, then additional $163 billion of weapons exports to such govts, including those w/ systematic human rights abuses (eg, Algeria). In all, governments and corporations involved in the arms deals approved by Clinton’s State Department have delivered over $54 million to the Clinton Foundation as well as hundreds of thousands of dollars in payments to the Clinton family, according to foundation and State Department records. o For 30% credit card interest. o Turning $1,000 into $100,000 was beginner’s luck in cattle futures trading, THEN had “assistance” from Tyson Food’s attorney and futures trader.
o Fired White House travel staff for financial improprieties to install her own friends, THEN had to rehire them when FBI found nothing but wrongful termination due to her false statements.
And guess who the Democrats of Texas voted for on March 1st to be their candidate?
