Time's up, Hillary

[This piece is written by RebeccaElaineMarciaAnnAva and C.I.]

A senior adviser to Hillary Clinton’s 2008 presidential campaign who was accused of repeatedly sexually harassing a young subordinate was kept on the campaign at Mrs. Clinton’s request, according to four people familiar with what took place.
Mrs. Clinton’s campaign manager at the time recommended that she fire the adviser, Burns Strider. But Mrs. Clinton did not. Instead, Mr. Strider was docked several weeks of pay and ordered to undergo counseling, and the young woman was moved to a new job.

So her pet goes on to work for David Brock and the Correct the Record (Hillary front group) and is eventually fired there.

Time’s up, Hillary.

You’ve posed forever and a day as a feminist.

Time’s up.

You covered for Bill Clinton’s behavior and continue to do so.

You ran on his record and you chose to “Stand By Your Man” despite you infamously declaring in 1992 that you weren’t a little woman standing by your man.

So his assaults are now your assaults.

You refused to speak to that.

But you stood by him and talked about how victims should be believed.

But you ignored your own husband.

Even limiting it to Monica Lewinsky alone, did you not see the abuse? 

We’re talking a very young woman.

And he wasn’t any older man, he was the President of the United States.

Bill making moves with Sharon Stone?

She’s an experienced adult.

Monica was a 22-year-old.

World of difference.

And yet where are her words of warning, where are her words of regret?

Or maybe she’d like to claim that, as with her vote for the Iraq War, this was all Bully Boy Bush’s fault?

That’s setting aside Paula Jones.

Maybe we shouldn’t?

He settled with her.  The Supreme Court disbarred him as a result of “the Jones issue.”

Maybe Hillary should have something to say there.

The affair with Gennifer Flowers was consensual, so we’ll leave that alone.

There’s Juanita Broaddrick who states she was raped by Bill Clinton and we believe her but clearly Hillary does not.

We repeatedly noted throughout 2016 that if this were any other candidate, this rape would be an issue.

Hillary was married to Bill when the alleged rape took place.

Hillary is still married to him.

Kitty Dukakis was an issue for her drinking when her husband was running.

But Hillary being married to a man publicly accused of rape resulted in no serious coverage.

To this day, no one has asked her about it in a television interview.

She ran for the US Senate.  She ran for re-election to the US Senate.  She ran for the Democratic Party’s 2008 presidential nomination.  She ran for president in 2016.

Four public campaigns.

And the candidate was never asked about the rape allegation.

And, for the record, Bill has never publicly spoken.  The only ‘statement’ was one delivered by a spokesperson when he was president.

Danny Masterson and Ed Westwick both lost jobs recently based solely on rape accusations.

But a presidential candidate can run for office with a spouse that has been accused and no one asks?

The same spouse settled a harassment lawsuit and that’s not a question for the candidate?

A candidate who’s running as a feminist?

As a protector of women and children?

Hillary championed Brett McGurk for Ambassador to Iraq – despite what it would have done to Iraqi women.

He would have been the US Ambassador to Iraq.  And because of his reputation of being a playboy in Iraq previously (treating his ‘blue balls’), it would have made women interacting with him suspect.  He was branded an adulterer in Iraq, grasp that there is a conservative strain in this religious country

Hillary didn’t give a damn.

If a number of US senators – spearheaded by two female senators – hadn’t met with then-President Barack Obama and given a firm no to Brett, he would not have withdrawn his nomination.

Our ‘feminist’ Hillary didn’t care that Brett as US Ambassador would mean only Iraqi males could interact with him in a society that frowns on adultery and can still carry out so-called ‘honor’ killings.

And speaking of Iraqi women, Hillary also refused to champion them.   From the July 9, 2016 "Iraq snapshot:"

Trashy Hillary Clinton could pimp Iraq as a business opportunity.

But the alleged 'feminist' couldn't and wouldn't do a damn thing for Iraqi women.

This is most obvious in the e-mails WikiLeaks published this week.

Melanne Verveer e-mails Hillary on December 11, 2011:

We attempted to raise the issue of women's participation in the Iraq government, in their economy and more broadly when Biden was just in Baghdad.  Jeff Feltman was trying to get it into the conversations there.

You will recall the comments of the Iraqi who participated in the NGO meeting with you in Doha about how the door has been closed to women in the government.  We have had many discussions with impressive Iraqi women over the last couple years, and to a person they describe their fate as worse now than years ago.  Yet without them it will be even harder for Iraq to move forward.  To that end, we have been working with post on a action plan along the lines of the National Action Plan on women, peace and security, you will launch next week.
I hope you will find a way to raise the "women's issue" in your discussion tom'w.

And what does the 'great feminist' of all time, the woman with the highest cabinet position in the administration respond:

I raised women's issue w Maliki and Zebari.  Can't say either of them seemed interested.  But, we'll keep trying -- as always!

Despite the reality that her vote for the Iraq War destroyed the lives of Iraqi women.

And her State Dept was said to be a hotbox of misconduct. 

Philippe Reins served under Hillary and his harassment was noted in an e-mail exchange with the late  journalist Michael Hastings – a point only a few pointed out.

Patrick Kennedy reported to Hillary and vicious rumors swirled about him.

Over and over again, Hillary has taken a pass.

Yet wants to insist that she’s a champion of girls and women.


And we haven’t even noted her refusal to fire close pal Huma Abedin.

Loyalty’s good.  To a point.

When your pal’s becoming a distraction to your campaign, you cut your losses.  Failure to do so indicates you won’t be able to make hard choices should you become president.

Yet another sex scandal and Hillary can’t shut it down but thinks she can be president.

Huma’s husband (whom she’s still married to at this point) went to prison.

And Hillary wouldn’t cut her loose?

He was a danger to underage women and Hillary wouldn’t cut Huma loose.

She keeps saying she’s a friend to women and children but she keeps providing cover for predators.

THE NEW YORK TIMES has reported one more example of how you can be a predator and have Hillary’s full support.

It’s time for people to stop pretending that she’s an example of anything other than a worn out door mat.
