H Is For Hypocrite

As Hillary’s poll numbers continue to slide, she is desperately trying to hold onto her supposed base: women. The foundation of her campaign is quickly eroding, as polls show that women are indeed much smarter than Hillary thinks.

On Monday, September 14, Hillary released a campaign video message to show her solidarity with women who have been sexually assaulted and Tweeted some of her quotes from it. She said, “Don’t let anyone silence your voice. You have the right to be heard. You have the right to be believed. We’re with you.”

Hillary certainly is familiar with sexual assault, having spent decades trying to cover it up and behalf of her husband and others, often destroying women’s lives in the process. It is Hillary who has demeaned, degraded and in many cases silenced those women unlucky enough to be sexually assaulted by her husband. As I reveal in detail in my upcoming book The Clintons’ War on Women, it is Hillary who hired private detectives to track, intimidate, terrorize and silence those women unlucky enough to be sexually assaulted by Bill Clinton.

She has headed the cleanup crew of Bill’s sexual assaults on Eileen Wellstone, Juanita Broaddrick, Carolyn Moffet, Liz Ward Gracen, Becky Brown, Helen Dowdy, Paula Jones, Kathy Fergusen, Christy Zercher and Kathleen Willey, among dozens of others.

In fact, Hillary is the only candidate from any party who has specialized in silencing the voices of sexually assaulted women for decades. Just ask Kathleen Willey, Paula Jones or Juanita Broadrrick what happens when a woman attacked by Bill tries to come forward. It’s chilling.

It sure doesn’t sound like Hillary thought a twelve year-old sexual assault victim had the right to be heard or believed in 1975, when she was the lawyer for the man accused of raping her. A recent article by the U.K’s Daily Mail shows that Hillary’s tactics of smearing and disgracing rape victims was not even limited to Bill’s prey. In stunning contrast to this week’s tweet saying that rape victims have a “right to believed,” Hillary told the court that the twelve year old was “emotionally unstable” and “exhibits an unusual stubbornness and temper when she does not get her way.” She even disparaged the child’s family, adding that, “adolescents ‘tend to exaggerate or romanticize sexual experiences,’ something that often occurred among children from ‘disorganized families, such as the complainant.’”

Hillary’s smearing of the child and her family went far beyond the zealous work of an attorney, even though she later admitted that she knew the girl was telling the truth. A 2014 report by The Washington Free Beacon on tapes discovered from unpublished interviews with Hillary while she was the first lady of Arkansas, focusing on the 1975 case. “It was a very interesting case,” Clinton says on the tapes. “This guy was accused of raping a 12-year-old. ‘Course he claimed that he didn’t, and all this stuff … I had him take a polygraph, which he passed – which forever destroyed my faith in polygraphs,” she said. And then she admitted, “You know, what was sad about it was that the prosecutor had evidence, among which was his underwear, which was bloody.” Now, Hillary wants American women to know that she will be their advocate in the White House.

Politico reported that Hillary also spoke about sexual assault at the University of Northern Iowa  on Monday, during a one-day campaign visit:

With a “Women for H” sign behind her, Clinton said that sexual assault can destroy young women’s lives, noting that it causes some to “drop out, some never finish their education.” It’s not enough to condemn campus sexual assault, we need to end campus sexual assault, for the “young women [who] are truly lost and left out” because of an inadequate response to a serious women’s rights issue.

Clinton said as president she would “fight to make sure every campus offers every survivor the support she needs,” and … called the issue “deeply important to me, to try and work together with everybody, to bring about the changes necessary in behavior and attitude, to try and confront the continuing challenge of violence against women.”

This is the same Hillary Clinton who rails against Republicans for failing to pass a bill against sex trafficking while her Clinton Foundation took contributions from a known pedophile and sex trafficker, and while her husband’s presidential library took millions for a foreign leader known for keeping an underage harem of female sex slaves. It’s the same Hillary Clinton who rails against pay inequality but has always herself paid women less than men. Now her hypocrisy extends to the issue of rape.

But Kathleen Willey and the dozens of other victims of Hillary’s rape cleanup operation can give better advice to young women who are thinking about coming forward after a sexual assault: If you want to be heard, stay away from Hillary. If you want a president who cares about women, don’t vote for Hillary.

If Hillary was as vigorous in keeping a lid on national security secrets as she is about silencing women who have been sexually abused, she might not be facing a prison term.
