    Hillary Backs Off 'Corporations Don't Make Jobs' Comment -- But Not Really

    Posted 54 mins ago by Tad Cronn

    A few days after Hillary Clinton said that corporations and businesses don't create jobs, she's trying to distance herself from her very own "you didn't build that" moment.

    On Friday, she said at a rally in Massachusetts, "Don’t let anybody tell you that it’s corporations and businesses that create jobs."
    Because obviously the government fairy godmother does that.
    By Monday, after having a weekend to realize what a boneheaded thing she had said, Clinton tried to walk it back, saying she had "shorthanded this point the other day." What she had meant to say was that "trickle down economics" is bad, bad, bad:
    "Let me be absolutely clear about what I've been saying for a couple of decades: Our economy grows when businesses and entrepreneurs create good-paying jobs here in an America where workers and families are empowered to build from the bottom up and the middle out -- not when we hand out tax breaks for corporations that outsource jobs or stash their profits overseas."
    The problem of course is that what she's describing sounds like the very "trickle down economics" the Democrats criticize. The basic idea of getting government out of businesses, lowering taxes and decreasing regulations so small businesses can thrive is the sort of sound economic theory that would work, if our government would ever try it.
    Clinton says "trickle down" has "failed rather spectacularly," but that's not been the prevailing economic theory for years now. Instead, we've been slapped with more and more regulations, including the monster Obamacare package. From the local to the federal level, Democrats constantly push ways to increase the costs of business and milk people of as much money in fees and taxes as possible, while vastly increasing the size and expense of government.

    From bailing out automakers to raising the minimum wage, Democrats' tired old Keynesian economics have ruled the country for too long.
    It's telling that in the same speech where Clinton had her little Freudian moment, she also touted a higher minimum wage as a panacea for poverty.
    "Don’t let anybody tell you that raising the minimum wage will kill jobs. They always say that," she said.
    The reason "they" always say that is because that's what always happens when you raise the cost of having an employee.
    Democrats -- and some Republicans -- believe in magic, that just because they have the keys to the printing press, they can print as much money as they need with no consequences. Consequently, they are mystified by ideas like balancing a business's costs vs. its sales. Because they believe that government creates jobs, they are flummoxed at the very notion that a business owner might want to make a profit and keep his own family fed. After all, the business owner "didn't build that."
    The economic theories that have been holding us down are the same ones espoused by Hillary and her political kin. They are a natural outgrowth of the same socialist view that says government is meant to rule the people, not serve them.
    If America is to return to being a free society, it's time to ditch Hillary and the rest of the Democrats.

    Hillary Clinton Repeats Herself All the Time on the Campaign Trail

    Coming soon to a battleground state near you

    BY: David Rutz
    October 30, 2014 5:00 am

    Hillary Clinton has settled into a talking points rhythm while stumping for Democrats across the country these past few weeks.
    First pointed out by CNN, Clinton habitually gushes about her own “grandmother glow,” praises Democrats as the “right leaders at the right time,” rips Republican attempts to induce “amnesia” and “fear” with the electorate, and warns supporters not to take “anything for granted.”
    She also likes a rather stretched line about wherever the rally’s being held having enough energy to light that city. To her credit, the former First Lady doesn’t appear to have as much trouble as current First Lady Michelle Obama with the names of the candidates she supports, although Clinton did step in it last week by saying corporations and businesses don’t create jobs.

    Define desperate: Hillary says mammograms in jeopardy if Republican Joni Ernst wins

    Friday, October 31, 2014

    Hillary using scare tactics.

    Hillary Clinton just gave her future opponent another early Christmas gift.

    On the heels of her supremely ignorant conclusion that businesses and corporations don’t create jobs, she told a crowd in Iowa that they would be in jeopardy of losing access to mammograms if Republican Joni Ernst wins the race for Senate in the state.
    Desperation overtook Clinton while she was campaigning for Bruce Braley, who is trailing in the heated race.
    Clinton bashed Ernst for trying to repeal Obamacare, “something that guaranteed women access to mammograms,” she said, according to the Washington Post.

    Post Continues on


    All these politicians do is lie...distort the facts, and lie some more!!! Vote them all out, a new broom sweeps clean!!!

    Criminal Rothschilds and their friends

    In 2000 the 70-year-old Sir Evelyn de Rothschild married affluent businesswoman Lynn Forrester. They spent their wedding night at the White House in Washington DC, with Bill Clinton scuttling around serving them drinks and hors d’oeuvres. A year later, on September 11, 2001, the couple hired out the entire top two floors of a 5-star hotel in Manhattan. The hotel had a majestic view of New York.
    At 9 am precisely on that fateful morning, September 11, 2001, the lucky couple stepped out onto their balcony where breakfast was served. They had ringside seats of the World Trade Center. They could see the Twin Towers glittering in the distance. They could see the first plane approaching through an azure blue sky … and then the fireworks … the explosions … the billowing smoke … and then the second plane approaching …. They could see men and women leaping from the towers … spiraling downward to their deaths on the concrete below.
    As they sipped their coffees on the sunny balcony, musing on life and death and sex and shopping, they had the best seats in the house.

    1. City States.
    Did the world wars, revolutions & big events of human history happen naturally or coincidentally, or were they calculated & pre-planned? If they were pre planned, who planned them?
    The answer to this question can be found within the boundaries of 3 of the worlds most powerful cities. Those 3 cities belong to no nation & pay no taxes. They are Washington's District of Columbia, which is not part of the City of Washington or the US. The inner city of London, which is not part of London or England & Vatican City, which is not part of Rome or Italy.
    These cities, called City States, have their own independent flag, their own separate laws & their own separate identity.
    2. Vatican City
    Gracing the walls of St Peter's Basilica is the Vatican-approved image of God. An angry bearded man in the sky, painted by Michael Angelo. Cruel/violent images of God's tortured son, suffering, bleeding & dying with thorns gouged through his skull/nails pounded through his feet & hands are on display throughout the Vatican. These images serve as reminders that God allowed his son to be tortured & killed to save the souls of human beings who are all born sinners.
    The Vatican rules over approximately 2bn of the worlds 6.2bn people. The colossal wealth of the Vatican includes enormous investments with the Rothschilds in Britain, France, USA, with giant oil & weapons corporations like Shell & General Electric. The Vatican solid gold bullion, worth billions is stored with the Rothschild controlled Bank of England & the US Federal Reserve Bank.
    The Catholic Church is the biggest financial power, wealth accumulator and property owner in existence, possessing more material wealth than any bank, corporation, giant trust or government anywhere on the globe.
    While 2/3 of the world earns less than $2 a day & 1/5 of the world is underfed or starving to death, the Vatican hoards the world's wealth, profits from it on the stock market & at the same time preaches about giving.
    So how did the Vatican accumulate all that wealth over the millennium? One method was to put a price-tag on sin. Many bishops & popes actively marketed gilt, sin & fear for profit, by selling indulgences. Worshippers were encouraged to pre-pay for sins they hadn't yet committed & get pardoned ahead of time. Those who didn't pay-up risked eternal damnation. Another method was to get wealthy land owners to hand-over their land/fortune to the church on their death bed, in exchange for a blessing which would supposedly enable them to go to heaven.
    Pope Leo the fifth rebuilt St Peter's Basilica, by selling tickets out of hell & tickets to heaven.
    During the dark ages, the Catholic Church not only hoarded the wealth they collected from the poor, but they hoarded knowledge. They kept the masses ignorant & in the dark by denying them a basic education. They also prohibited anyone from reading or even possessing a Bible, under pain of death.
    Between 1095-1291 AD the Pope launched 7 blood baths called the Christian Crusaides, torturing, murdering, beheading & mass murdering hundreds of thousands of Muslims & Jews in the name of God. The Pope's brutal solders were called Knights Templar or Knights of the Temple of Solomon & evolved into today's secretive brotherhood called the Freemasons.
    Between 1450-1700 AD the Catholic Church followed up their holy terror with the inquisition. Based on rumours of practicing witchcraft, the Catholic Church hunted down, tortured & burned-alive 10's of 1000's of innocent women at the stake.
    During WWII the Vatican was criticized for supporting Hitler & his Nazi regime. To this day, the Vatican is still under investigation for plundering Nazi gold from the Swiss bank accounts of Jewish holocaust victims.
    Over the past 5 decades more than 1,500 priests & bishops have been identified in the sexual assault of tens of thousands of boys & girls in their trusting congregations & orphanages.
    Why is the filthy rich institution preaching spiritual values of poverty & chastity while cardinals, bishops & priests cover-up their crimes of sexual abuse? Why has the church fought & resisted the compensation claims of their sexually, emotionally & spiritually traumatised victims?
    3. The City of London.
    Like Vatican city, London's inner city is also a privately owned corporation or city state, located right in the middle of greater London. It became a sovereign state in 1694 when King William III of Orange privatised & turned the Bank of England over to the bankers. Today, the City State of London is the world's financial power centre & the wealthiest square mile on the face of the Earth. It houses the Rothschild controlled Bank of England, Lloyds of London, the London stock exchange, all British banks, the branch offices of 385 foreign banks & 70 US banks. It has its own courts, its own laws, its own flag & its own police force. It is not part of greater London, or England, or the British Commonwealth & pays no taxes. The City State of London houses Fleet Street's newspaper & publishing monopolies. It is also the headquarters for world wide English Freemasonry & headquarters for the world wide money cartel known as The Crown.
    Contrary to popular belief, The Crown is not the Royal Family or the British Monarch. The Crown is the private corporate City State of London. It has a council of 12 members who rule the corporation under a mayor, called the Lord Mayor. The Lord mayor & his 12 member council serves as proxies or representatives who sit-in for13 of the worlds wealthiest, most powerful banking families, including the Rothschild family, the Warburg family, the Oppenheimer family & the Schiff family. These families and their descendants run the Crown Corporation of London.
    The Crown Corporation holds the title to world wide Crown land in Crown colonies like Canada, Australia & New Zealand. British parliament & the British prime minister serve as a public front for the hidden power of these ruling crown families.
    4. The District of Columbia.
    Like the City States of London & the Vatican, a third city state was officially created in 1982. That city state is called the District of Columbia & is located on 10sq miles of land in the heart of Washington. The District of Columbia flies its own flag & has its own independent constitution.
    The constitution for the District of Columbia operates under a tyrannical Roman law known as Lex Fori, which bares no resemblance to the US Constitution. When Congress passed the act of 1871 it created a separate corporation known as THE UNITED STATES & corporate government for the District of Columbia. This treasonous act allowed the District of Columbia to operate as a corporation outside the original constitution of the United States & outside of the best interests of American Citizens.
    Although geographically separate, the city states of London, the Vatican & the District of Columbia are one interlocking empire called Empire of the City.
    The flag of Washington's district of Columbia has 3 red stars. One for each city state in the 3 city empire. This corporate empire of 3 city states controls the world economically, through London's inner city, militarily through the District of Columbia & spiritually through the Vatican.
    5. The U.S.A. - A Crown Colony.
    A sobering study of the signed treaties & charters between Britain & the US exposes a shocking truth. The US has always been & still is a British Crown colony.
    King James I was famous not for just translating the Bible into the King James version. But for signing the first charter of Virginia in 1606. That charter granted America's British forefathers a licence to settle & colonise America. The charter also guaranteed that future Kings/Queens of England would have sovereign authority over all citizens & colonised land in America, stolen from the Indians.
    After America declared its independence from Great Britain, the Treaty of 1783 was signed. That treaty specifically identifies the King of England as the Prince of the United States & contradicts the belief that America won the War of Independence.
    Although King George III of England gave up most of his claims over American colonies, he kept his right to continue receiving payment for his business venture of colonising America.
    If America had really won the War of Independence, they would never have agreed to pay debts & reparations to the King of England.
    America's blood soaked War of Independence against the British bankrupted America & turned its citizens into permanent debt slaves of the King. In the War of 1812, the British torched & burned to the ground the Whitehouse & all US government buildings. Destroying ratification records of the US constitution.
    Most US citizens believe that the US is a country & the President is the most powerful man on earth. The US is not a country. It is a corporation. And the president is President of the Corporation of the United States. He & his elected officials work for the corporation, not for the American people. Since the US is a corporation, who owns the corporation of the United States?
    Like Canada & Australia whose leaders are Prime Ministers of the Queen & whose land is called Crown Land, the US is just another crown colony. Crown colonies are controlled by the Empire of the 3 City States.
    6. Obelisks
    At the centre of each city state is a towering phallic shaped stone monument called an obelisk that points skyward. In DC city state, the obelisk known as the Washington monument was dedicated to the Freemason George Washington by the Freemason Grand Lodge of the District of Columbia. 250 Masonic lodges financed the Washington obelisk monument, including the Knights Templar Masonic order.
    At the heart of London City State, is a 187 ton 69 foot tall Egyptian obelisk called Cleopatra's Needle. It was transported from Egypt & erected on the banks of the river Thames.
    In Vatican city, another Egyptian obelisk towers high above St Peter's square.
    Obelisks are phallic shaped monuments honouring the pagan sun god of ancient Egypt called Amen Ra. The spirit of this pagan god is said to reside within the obelisk

    Paul: Hillary Clinton 'soundly rejected'

    By Peter Sullivan

    Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) on Tuesday portrayed the early Senate results as a repudiation of Hillary Clinton, a possible 2016 presidential rival.

    "I think we’re going to pick up enough [seats] to take over the Senate, and I think it is a repudiation basically of the president's policies, but also Hillary Clinton," Paul said on Fox News Tuesday night."Hillary Clinton and Bill Clinton have been all over the place. They’re trying to make out as if they’re somehow better for Democrats, but in Kentucky they were soundly rejected."
    As President Obama stayed away from the Senate campaign trail, both Hillary and former President Bill Clinton campaigned hard, particularly in Kentucky and Arkansas. But both Democratic Senate candidates are projected to lose in those states. Paul also pointed to Iowa, a key presidential state.
    "They campaigned in Kentucky very heavily, and in Arkansas, and in Iowa, so I think the facts are the facts," he said on Fox News Tuesday night. "Did the Clintons help their ticket? So far, I don’t think they have."
    Paul also criticized Kentucky Democrat Alison Lundergan Grimes for linking herself to Clinton.
    "It turns out Hillary Clinton doesn’t have too many coattails in Kentucky," he said.

    Hillary’s Losers

    BY: Andrew Stiles
    November 6, 2014 11:41 am


    Hillary Clinton wasn’t on the ballot this year, but all of the candidates she’d campaigned for were, and they suffered some of the most embarrassing defeats of the cycle. Even MSNBC agrees that it was a bad night for Clinton.

    Hillary campaigned for more than a dozen candidates across the country, making frequent use of the “war on women” rhetoric that many voters appear to be tired of hearing. As a result, Clinton had a rough night Tuesday. A number of Hillary-backed candidates lost despite running in reliably blue states such as Illinois, Massachusetts, Maryland, and Maine.

    Clinton made several trips to Iowa, a crucial state for her 2016 hopes, but her star power failed to convince voters to elect Bruce Braley to the Senate. Voters in important swing states such as Florida and North Carolina also rejected her approved candidates. At the very least, this year’s election results might make some Democrats want to rethink the prevailing notion that Hillary is a shoo-in for the presidency in 2016.

    Here are a few of Hillary’s losers:

    Alison Lundergan Grimes (Kentucky Senate)

    “The voters of Kentucky have a chance not just to send a message, but to alter the course of politics and government.”
    —Hillary Clinton

    Bruce Braley (Iowa, Senate)

    “It’s not enough to be a woman, you have to be committed to expand rights and opportunities for all women.”
    —Hillary Clinton on Joni Ernst

    Mark Udall (Colorado, Senate)

    “Colorado is well-known for being an energy state, and I think, honestly, there’s enough energy in here to light a small city for a month.”
    —Hillary Clinton

    Kay Hagan (North Carolina, Senate)

    “Tell them to vote their hopes, not their fears. Tell them to votes their dreams. Tell them to vote for Kay Hagan for the United States Senate.”
    —Hillary Clinton

    Pat Quinn (Illinois, Governor)

    “[Pat Quinn] has just been entered into the Guinness World Records book as luckiest politician.”
    —Hillary Clinton

    Martha Coakley (Massachusetts, Governor)

    “Don’t let anybody tell you that, you know, its corporations and businesses that create jobs…Martha understands it.”
    —Hillary Clinton

    Mike Michaud (Maine, Governor)

    “I think Maine needs a fresh start. Mike has the grit and the vision to deliver that.”
    —Hillary Clinton

    Anthony Brown (Maryland, Governor)

    “They may be checking the box next to Anthony Brown, but they’re really voting for themselves.”
    —Hillary Clinton

    Sean Eldridge (New York, House)

    “Congress needs an independent advocate like Sean, who will shake things up.”
    —Hillary Clinton

    Even more embarrassing than Hillary’s record on election night was the way her political team tried to spin the results:

    Dan Merica @danmericaCNN Follow

    Hillary Clinton's 2014 Senate record was 3 wins, 6 losses and 1 runoff. Aides argue her 2014 participation was bigger than wins & losses.
    8:42 PM - 4 Nov 2014

    Kenneth P. Vogel @kenvogel Follow

    Perhaps they missed the exit polls showing that more voters thought Hillary would make a bad president than thought she’d make a good one.
    Ready for Joe?

    Hillaryland sources casting GOP takeover as setting the stage for her to swoop in as Dem Party savior.

    Hillary Donor Under Investigation in Counterintelligence Probe

    Robin Raphel worked as registered foreign agent for Pakistani government

    Robin Raphel / AP

    BY: Alana Goodman
    November 11, 2014 2:00 pm
    A former high-ranking diplomat and Clinton ally at the center of an FBI counterintelligence probe was a registered foreign agent for the Pakistani government up until just days before she was appointed to run the U.S. State Department’s Pakistan aid team.
    The Washington Post reported last week that the State Department’s aid coordinator for Pakistan, Robin Raphel, is the subject of a counterintelligence investigation and has had her security clearance revoked.
    The FBI has not specified the nature of the probe, although the Post indicated that it could be espionage-related. She was reportedly placed on administrative leave last month, and the State Department said she is no longer employed by the agency.
    Raphel previously served as an assistant secretary of state under President Bill Clinton and rejoined the State Department in August 2009 to focus on Pakistan and Afghanistan aid issues. She is also close to Hillary Clinton and contributed $2,000 to her presidential campaign in 2007.
    From 2007 until 2009, Raphel worked for the lobbying firm Cassidy & Associates, where her clients included the Embassy of the Islamic Republic of Pakistan and the Republic of Equatorial Guinea.
    Cassidy & Associates stated in lobbying disclosure records that Raphel stopped conducting work for Pakistan in November 2007.
    The U.S. Foreign Agent Registration office told the Washington Free Beacon that Raphel’s foreign agent registration for Pakistan remained active until July 31, 2009. The State Department announced her appointment as Pakistani foreign aid coordinator five days later.
    Disclosure forms also list dozens of Raphel’s cab rides between June 1, 2009 and the July 31, 2009 as expenses incurred on behalf of the Pakistani embassy.
    Ten of these cab rides were for trips Raphel made to the State Department at the end of July. Cassidy & Associates later filed an amendment stating that these State Department visits were “incorrectly characterized” and “were not incurred on behalf of the foreign principal.”
    The firm did not challenge Raphel’s other listed cab rides on behalf of the Pakistani government during that same time period.
    On August 10, 2009, Cassidy & Associates asked the Foreign Agent Registration office to terminate Raphel’s October 27, 2007 lobbying registration for Pakistan and Equatorial Guinea. The firm stated that Raphel “has not rendered services for these foreign principals since [November 2007 and February 2008].”
    FARA experts said the discrepancies were unusual, but could be excused as clerical errors and on their own were unlikely to trigger a counterintelligence investigation.
    “Not standing alone. Maybe [the filings would prompt] a letter of question, nothing more,” one attorney who specializes in FARA issues told the Free Beacon. “I don’t think there would be any inference of nefarious conduct based on that.”
    Still, the disclosures highlight Raphel’s close professional ties with the Pakistani government, which critics have cited to claim she is biased against India.
    Cassidy & Associates waited barely one month after Raphel left the firm before lobbying their former employee on Pakistan issues, meeting with her on Sept. 2, Sept. 26 and Sept. 27 of 2009, as well as several times in November.
    According to disclosure records, Cassidy & Associates lobbyists had conversations with Raphel about the Enhanced Partnership with Pakistan Act and “aid priorities and funding mechanisms for development in Pakistan.”
    “We are reviewing our filings, but Ms. Raphel has not worked for Cassidy since July, 2009,” said a spokesman for Cassidy & Associates.
    While the Obama administration has restrictions on lobbyists joining the administration, Raphel was not subject to these rules because she was not a presidential appointee.
    Raphel, a long-time diplomat, is a frequent guest on think tank panels and a respected voice in Washington’s Pakistan policy circles.
    “I would be flabbergasted beyond belief if she did anything deliberately and knowingly that is illegal,” said C. Christine Fair, an assistant professor at Georgetown University and a South Asia policy expert. “I’m appalled by the allegations that have been flung at her without evidence. Everyone should wait for evidence and recall that all are innocent until proven guilty.”
    Raphel served as both assistant secretary of state and ambassador to Tunisia under the Clinton administration. Her first husband, Arnold Raphel, was a former U.S. ambassador to Pakistan and was killed along with Pakistani President Muhammad Zia ul-Haq in a 1988 plane crash.
