Hillary Clinton’s record of accomplishments is impeccable. The Trump campaign tried to bash her integrity last night at the Republican Convention, persuading the American people that she is not suitable to be the next president of the free world.
America, don’t believe the hype! I will admit, she is not perfect and she has made some mistakes, but so has Donald Trump. I had a revelation last night after listening to the majority of the speaker’s bashing Hillary, and I’ve come to the conclusion that the majority of Americans is not ready to see a strong woman running this country. I have to admit there are a lot of diverse culture who think a woman is not strong enough to be president. There are some men who are intimidated by strong women and Donald Trump is one of them. The Trump campaign is on a mission to lie about her experience, her qualifications, and her accomplishments, the lies that they tell the American people and the bias propaganda they furnish to the media is preposterous. Let her accomplishments speak for themselves.

Now compare Donald Trump’s list of (click.. accomplishments : None dealing with the American People and this is who you want to vote for?
The Trump campaign is in full throttle seeking to destroy Hillary’s image because they know she will be the first woman to make history as being the first president of the United States of America. As a conservative democrat myself, she has my vote and I pray that the rest of America will open their eyes and vote Hillary Clinton to be the next president for America.
Trump is only for the rich. He is not for the hard working class people who makes America what it is today. He thinks minorities are beneath him. He uses uneducated people of all color to work in his casino’s, hotels, business as maids, housekeepers, bus boys, waitress, dishwashers, floor cleaners, drivers, etc. Trump only goal right now is to become the next president of the United States of America and he will say anything to get there. He is targeting uneducated white people with the same bias, pompous attitude as himself. Don’t listen to the hype. Ask yourself, When have you ever seen Trump socialize with minorities other then now? He wants your votes. Don’t be blind to his persuasion. This man never cared about the American People he only wants what he can get out of the American People. He wants your vote. Trump is now and forever will be for people like him the wealthy. He has silent lenders who is backing him up and making sure he wins this election. He don’t realize it’s conservative people like me in America who will stop at nothing to make sure he will never sit in the oval office because he is not for the American People. Trump has no compassion for the working class. He will never know what it feels like to walk in a poor man shoes.
The Obama Care has nothing to do with this government shut down. Boehner is full of BS, and you have so many people defending him and his Republican Party. Since The Huffington Post didn’t publish my comment about Boehner then I will post it to my blog. As I said many times before it’s time for Boehner and the rest of his party to leave the white house in 2014. This is my own personal opinion that I’m voicing. I just want to address those who are for Boehner and the Republican Party. Do you think it’s right for Boehner and the Republican Party to let babies go hungry? Do you think it’s right for them not to bring the bodies of our dead soldiers homes that fought to protect this country? Do you think it’s right for them to continue receiving a paycheck while others who also work for the Government doesn’t?
The Republicans have never supported the hard-working Americans in this country, and they care less if the poor and the homeless starve (cutting out wic, and reducing food stamps) and die (against Americans having free healthcare, and Obama Care). John Boehner and the Republican Party don’t give an f*#* about the American people, they just don’t want to lose, and definitely not to Obama and the Democrats. Have you ever taken notice in the media that some people don’t consider Obama as their president; so they will not say (President Obama), they will just say Obama. The next time your watching the news especially Fox News just listen to some of the reporters or news anchors and you will hear what I’m talking about. Boehner and his Republican party is playing hardball with people livelihood all for the love of politics, and it’s not fair to the American people. Every American citizen needs to get out and vote in 2014. http://bit.ly/18uV7Sz
Obama need to continue turning up the political pressure on the Republicans. Boehner talks about America getting into more debt and he want to find ways to cut debt so our grandkids is not reasonable for our future debt.
Why didn’t the Bush administration think about this before they sent all our factories jobs overseas? It does not take a genius to figure out how to stop over spending in America, bring our American jobs back home to America so we can start back building and creating things in America.
College is not for everybody, back in 1992 under the Clinton administration America economy was booming because the American people had jobs we had white color jobs, and blue color jobs that paid a decent salary that the average person could live on especially those who didn’t go to college and just took up a trade.
The American people need to protest and let their voice be heard. The reason Republicans like Boehner can shut down the government because the American people give him the power to do so without saying anything. Now the government wants to cut out Food Stamps, Wic programs, unemployment checks, anything that will help the poor the Republicans will stop it. After you have sent 70% of our factory jobs overseas how do people suppose to work? Where should people look for work that can take care of an entire family?
Everything is going up except for minimum wage and salary wages. If there is an increase in the economy then there should be an increase in working people wages. The government is raping the American people and we are not doing anything about it. I recommend every freaking American to vote in 2014 so the Democrats can take over the house. The American people need to vote John Boehner out of the white house.
Every American citizen needs to figure out what their Mayor, Senator, and Governor, district Judges and DA’s will do for them, in their community, and in their state. Don’t ever vote straight Democrat, educate yourself, do your research and know whom your voting for.
It’s time for the citizens to take back America and we should have the power and the rights on how this country is led.
It amazes me how the United States and 188 other nations now have international norms that must be respected. Following World War II and the Holocaust, the United Nations adopted a resolution on December 9, 1948, which stated “The Contracting Parties confirm that genocide, whether committed in time of peace or in time of war, is a crime under international law which they undertake to prevent and to punish.”
Clearly, the massacres in Rwanda constituted genocide, so why didn’t the world step in to stop it?” replied Jennifer Rosenberg.
It amazes me how the world just stood by and watch 800,000 men, woman, and children being slowly tortured, raped, killed, and slaughtered like animals by Hutu extremists, and the Clinton administration along with the rest of the world didn’t do nothing to stop it, Why? Because Rwanda did not have not valuable resources that America could use. The Hutus used machetes, clubs, and knives to slaughter human lives because the bullets were too expensive to buy. The rest of the world just didn’t care that Africans were being slaughter daily by the thousands like animals. I often wonder; if this same bloodshed happened in Europe, or Australia, like it did in Rwanda Africa, what would be the significance of the United States and the other 188 nations aid to these two countries. Where was the norm when the genocide took place in Rwanda back in 1994? America goes to the aid of any other country in the world except Africa, and when they finally decided to intervene, it was too late.
Where do we draw the line between what is immoral, and what is the norm?
US chose to ignore Rwandan genocide
Classified papers show Clinton was aware of ‘final solution’ to eliminate Tutsis
by Rory Carroll in Johannesburg
The Guardian, Wednesday 31 March 2004 10.59 EST
President Bill Clinton’s administration knew Rwanda was being engulfed by genocide in April 1994 but buried the information to justify its inaction, according to classified documents made available for the first time.
Senior officials privately used the word genocide within 16 days of the start of the killings, but chose not to do so publicly because the president had already decided not to intervene.
Intelligence reports obtained using the US Freedom of Information Act show the cabinet and almost certainly the president had been told of a planned “final solution to eliminate all Tutsis” before the slaughter reached its peak.
It took Hutu death squads three months from April 6 to murder an estimated 800,000 Tutsis and moderate Hutus and at each stage accurate, detailed reports were reaching Washington’s top policymakers.
The documents undermine claims by Mr Clinton and his senior officials that they did not fully appreciate the scale and speed of the killings.
“It’s powerful proof that they knew,” said Alison des Forges, a Human Rights Watch researcher and authority on the genocide.
The National Security Archive, an independent non-governmental research institute based in Washington DC, went to court to obtain the material.
It discovered that the CIA’s national intelligence daily, a secret briefing circulated to Mr Clinton, the then vice-president, Al Gore, and hundreds of senior officials, included almost daily reports on Rwanda. One, dated April 23, said rebels would continue fighting to “stop the genocide, which … is spreading south”.
Three days later the state department’s intelligence briefing for former secretary of state Warren Christopher and other officials noted “genocide and partition” and reported declarations of a “final solution to eliminate all Tutsis”.
However, the administration did not publicly use the word genocide until May 25 and even then diluted its impact by saying “acts of genocide”.
Ms Des Forges said: “They feared this word would generate public opinion which would demand some sort of action and they didn’t want to act. It was a very pragmatic determination.”
The administration did not want to repeat the fiasco of US intervention in Somalia, where US troops became sucked into fighting. It also felt the US had no interests in Rwanda, a small central African country with no minerals or strategic value.
William Ferroggiaro, of the National Security Archive, said the system had worked. “Diplomats, intelligence agencies, defence and military officials – even aid workers – provided timely information up the chain,” he said.
“That the Clinton administration decided against intervention at any level was not for lack of knowledge of what was happening in Rwanda.”
Many analysts and historians fault Washington and other western capitals not just for failing to support the token force of overwhelmed UN peacekeepers but for failing to speak out more forcefully during the slaughter.
Some of the Hutu extremists orchestrating events might have heeded such warnings, they have suggested.
Mr Clinton has apologised for those failures but the declassified documents undermine his defence of ignorance. “The level of US intelligence is really amazing,” said Mr Ferroggiaro. “A vast array of information was available.”
On a visit to the Rwandan capital, Kigali, in 1998 Mr Clinton apologised for not acting quickly enough or immediately calling the crimes genocide.
In what was widely seen as an attempt to diminish his responsibility, he said: “It may seem strange to you here, especially the many of you who lost members of your family, but all over the world there were people like me sitting in offices, day after day after day, who did not fully appreciate the depth and speed with which you were being engulfed by this unimaginable terror.”
A spokesperson for the William Jefferson Clinton Foundation in New York said the allegations would be relayed to the former president.
