Hillary's legacy

I know there are Hillary fans reading my posts. I would really like to have some reasonable discourse with any of you about why you would even consider this evil, corrupt and spiritually ugly liar in any position of power. What about this "person" attracts you?
At least Bernie is upfront about what he believes in and stands for. Although I disagree with almost everything he says and does and I have no real respect for him, at least he isn't an abhorrent, evil, lying scumball!

If you're under 50 you really need to read this. If you’re over 50, you lived through it, so share it with those under 50. Amazing to me how much I had forgotten!
When Bill Clinton was president, he allowed Hillary to assume authority over a health care reform. Even after threats and intimidation, she couldn’t even get a vote in a democratic controlled congress. This fiasco cost the American taxpayers about $13 million in cost for studies, promotion, and other efforts.
Then President Clinton gave Hillary authority over selecting a female attorney general. Her first two selections were Zoe Baird and Kimba Wood – both were forced to withdraw their names from consideration. Next she chose Janet Reno – husband Bill described her selection as “my worst mistake.” Some may not remember that Reno made the decision to gas David Koresh and the Branch Davidian religious sect in Waco, Texas resulting in dozens of deaths of women and children.
Husband Bill allowed Hillary to make recommendations for the head of the Civil Rights Commission. Lani Guanier was her selection. When a little probing led to the discovery of Ms. Guanier’s radical views, her name had to be withdrawn from consideration.
Apparently a slow learner, husband Bill allowed Hillary to make some more recommendations. She chose former law partners Web Hubbel for the Justice Department, Vince Foster for the White House staff, and William Kennedy for the Treasury Department. Her selections went well: Hubbel went to prison, Foster (presumably) committed suicide, and Kennedy was forced to resign.
Many younger votes will have no knowledge of “Travelgate.” Hillary wanted to award unfettered travel contracts to Clinton friend Harry Thompson – and the White House Travel Office refused to comply. She managed to have them reported to the FBI and fired. This ruined their reputations, cost them their jobs, and caused a thirty-six month investigation. Only one employee, Billy Dale was charged with a crime, and that of the enormous crime of mixing personal and White House funds. A jury acquitted him of any crime in less than two hours.
Still not convinced of her ineptness, Hillary was allowed to recommend a close Clinton friend, Craig Livingstone, for the position of Director of White House security. When Livingstone was investigated for the improper access of about 900 FBI files of Clinton enemies (Filegate) and the widespread use of drugs by White House staff, suddenly Hillary and the president denied even knowing Livingstone, and of course, denied knowledge of drug use in the White House.
Following this debacle, the FBI closed its White House Liaison Office after more than thirty years of service to seven presidents.
Next, when women started coming forward with allegations of sexual harassment and rape by Bill Clinton, Hillary was put in charge of the #$%$ eruption” and scandal defense. Some of her more notable decisions in the debacle were:
She urged her husband not to settle the Paula Jones lawsuit. After the Starr investigation they settled with Ms. Jones.
She refused to release the Whitewater documents, which led to the appointment of Ken Starr as Special Prosecutor.
After $80 million dollars of taxpayer money was spent, Starr's investigation led to Monica Lewinsky, which led to Bill lying about and later admitting his affairs.
Hillary’s devious game plan resulted in Bill losing his license to practice law for 'lying under oath' to a grand jury and then his subsequent impeachment by the House of Representatives.
Hillary avoided indictment for perjury and obstruction of justice during the Starr investigation by repeating, “I do not recall,” “I have no recollection,” and “I don’t know” a total of 56 times while under oath.
After leaving the White House, Hillary was forced to return an estimated $200,000 in White House furniture, china, and artwork that she had stolen.
What a swell party – ready for another four or eight year of this type of low-life mess?
Now we are exposed to the destruction of possibly incriminating emails while Hillary was Secretary of State and the “pay to play” schemes of the Clinton Foundation – we have no idea what shoe will fall next.
But to her loyal fans (supporters) - I guess in her own words “what difference does it make?”

Our Nation is Divinely Founded

In an effort to understand more of what I have been feeling and thinking about our country and our government in todays world, I ran across this article; Adapted from an address delivered by Elder L. Tom Perry on February 24, 1976, at BYU.  I strongly urge all to read and ponder what Elder Perry had to say to us 40 years ago as it seems obvious to me that his words are even more appropo in our current society.
For those of you who are not members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints (Mormons), please don't disregard this wisdom about our country on that basis.  This message would be powerful from any source.
Here is a quote from this article which caught my eye.
"The source of America’s greatness is not a new doctrine to us. The Book of Mormon has declared over and over again that the blessings of heaven are contingent upon the righteousness of its people. In fact, this teaching has been proven in almost every age. Remember in 1831 when the famous French historian Alexis de Tocqueville said:

'I sought for the greatness and genius of America in her commodious harbors and her ample rivers, and it was not there; in her fertile fields and boundless prairies, and it was not there; in her rich mines and her vast world of commerce, and it was not there. Not until I went to the churches of America and heard her pulpits aflame with righteousness did I understand the secret of her genius and power. America is great because she is good, and if America ever ceases to be good, America will cease to be great.' (Jerreld L. Newquist, comp., Prophets, Principles and National Survival, Salt Lake City: Publishers Press, 1967, p. 60.)"
And these words about the Constitution of the United States
"No constitution on earth has endured longer than ours. We seek and usually find the answers to today’s hardest legal questions within this document of yesterday. The Constitution was and is a miracle. Both Washington and Madison referred to it as such. It was an inspired document, written under the divine guidance of the Lord. James Madison, commonly called the Father of the Constitution, recognized this inspiration and gave the credit to 'the guardianship and guidance of the Almighty Being whose power regulates the destiny of nations whose blessings have been so conspicuously displayed to the rising of this republic.' (Prologue, p. 95.)
 We believe that the Constitution was brought about by God to insure a nation where liberty could abound, where his gospel could flourish. Joseph Smith said, 'The Constitution of the United States is a glorious standard; it is founded in the wisdom of God. It is a heavenly banner.' (Teachings of the Prophet Joseph Smith, p. 147.)"
I know that the United States of America was founded through the Grace and Power of God and His Son, Jesus Christ.  Our founding fthers were guided by His Hand and the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution of the United States are Divine documents, designed to provide for all mankind a place of freedom and bounty for all time.
Let us not lose these blessings through a falling away from the principles on which out nation was founded.

The Media isn't telling us what's happening

On September 11, 2013, the American Muslim Political Action committee planned a big march on the mall in Washington, DC to, basically, protest Islamophobia.
As a response, the group: 2 Million Bikers to DC planned a nationwide ride.
An estimated 75,000 bikers showed up from all over the United States.  they presented a peaceful protest ride throughout Washington, DC but of course caused a bit of a traffic issue. 

In October, 2013 many of the nations truck drivers protested against government corruption and some of the actions being taken by the Obama Regime in response to the "Government Shutdown".  Although only a few dozen trucks showed up, the idea was impressive and the fact that so many of them took time from their business, used their own fuel and skipped loads, essentially giving up and/or spending thousands of dollars seems impressive to me.
Also, during the truckers protest, hundreds of Americans converged on Washington in protest of the Regime closing and barricading off many monuments and parks in the DC area as a way of making the Government Shutdown more visible.  These people tore down the barricades at some of these monuments and carried them to the Whitehouse lawn.  Most of these protesters were veterans.  Noteworthy participants were Ted Cruz and Sarah Palin.
My point here is that while these things were going on there was little or no Media coverage.  Very few people in America even knew these things were happening and most still don't know they happened.
In my opinion, because these events were counter to the wishes, desires and agenda of the current White House Regime, the compliant media ignored it all, thus keeping America uninformed and happy.
Many have talked of some sort of revolution against the continuing growth of unjustified and overreaching Government control in this country.  For all we know, it has already started and the Mainstream Media has just ignored it.  Hundreds of people could have been wiped out yesterday and we wouldn't know.
What has saved us a little is the alternative media such as Infowars, World News Daily, Newsmax, the Drudge Report and others.  Also, discussions of Facebook and Twitter keep small groups informed but, really, only those of us who already are feeling this way are watching these places.  Preaching to the Choir so to speak.
How do we get together and communicate without the sudden onslaught of Federal Agents at our doors?  We know Facebook is monitored as is Twitter.  What is our recourse for getting together and finding a way to fix this mess?
