Bill Clinton agrees with Trump: The political system is rigged

(Before It's News)

That’s what former President Bill Clinton said — he who is the husband of a woman who will be “elected” POTUS tomorrow by a rigged electoral system.

Bill made the remarks in a speech at a private HFA (Hillary for America) fundraiser at the home of Maryland State Senator Mike Miller in Chesapeake Beach, Maryland a year ago on October 19, 2015,

Peter Hasson reports for The Daily Caller, Nov. 5, 2016, that leaked transcripts of the speech reveal that, ironically, Bill Clinton actually agrees with one of Donald Trump’s major campaign themes — the political system is rigged against working class Americans.

The 8-page transcript of Bill Clinton’s speech was published by WikiLeaks and uploaded to Scribd. here. (You can also read it here, in FOTM‘s media library.)

This is what Bill Clinton said (p. 8 of transcript):

“And there are lots of people in the Democratic Party and lots of working people all over the world who are sick and tired of working their heart out and never getting a pay raise. And so they think the political system is rigged against them, which it is to some extent, and they think it doesn’t make any difference anyway, so they want to vote for whoever they think will raise the most hell.

By definition, the electoral system is a part of America’s political system, which means that when Bill Clinton said the U.S. “political system” is rigged, necessarily he included the electoral system.

Bill’s speech was also peppered with lies. Below are 5 examples:

Lie No. 1

Bill Clinton said:

“Something that’s really important to me – my foundation does a lot of work on AIDS, fighting AIDS, TB, malaria. And we lowered the price of AIDS medicine.” (p. 6 of transcript)

The truth:

The Clinton Foundation actually works hand-in-hand with pharmaceutical companies to keep the price of AIDs medicine high.

Ira Magaziner, CEO of the Clinton Foundation’s Clinton Health Access Initiative, said in an email published by WikiLeaks that the Foundation has “always” assured drug companies that the Foundation would not pressure them to lower drug prices because that would lead to a “slippery slope” of lower drug prices in the U.S. and Europe. (See “WikiLeaks Podesta emails: Clinton Foundation works with Big Pharma to keep AIDS drug prices high”)

Lie No 2

Bill Clinton said:

When Hillary was elected Senator from New York . . . there was no governor at the time. Andrew Cuomo has done a good job at this, but there – no governor in 30 years had tried to develop New York’s economy outside the city and the collar counties around it. She went to the farmers on Long Island, she went to small manufacturers in upstate New York. She started in effect becoming their de facto governor. She got people into ecommerce before it was fashionable in little towns. I’ll never forget, I met this guy who was making the best fishing rods I ever saw, with three people. All of a sudden he had 12 employees because he quadrupled his orders and 100 percent of his customers were from Norway. That was a big deal in 2002. She did that. You watch – before this is over, you’re going to see all the Republican farmers from Long Island going to Iowa, New Hampshire, campaigning for her because they will tell you, ‘Nobody ever helped us before she did.’” (pp. 4-5 of transcript)

The truth:

From Jeremy Zremski, “Clinton’s record upstate: Progress amid a promise that fell short,” The Buffalo News, April 8, 2016:

What, exactly, did Hillary Clinton do for Buffalo and upstate during her eight years in the U.S. Senate?

The answer, as it often is with the Clintons, is complicated.

Clinton promised during her 2000 campaign to bring 200,000 jobs to upstate New York. She didn’t come close….

‘Hillary has a serious plan to create 200,000 new jobs upstate,’ an announcer intoned in one of her 2000 campaign ads.

On the contrary, federal statistics show that overall employment fell slightly during her eight years in the Senate . . . .”

Lie No. 3

Bill Clinton said, referring to Hillary:

“when she left office [as Secretary of State], the approval of the United States around the world was more than 20 points higher than it was when she took office.” (p. 6 of transcript)

The truth:

Hillary Clinton was Secretary of State for about 4 years, from January 21, 2009, to February 1, 2013. (Hillary actually stopped doing her job as secretary of state in December 2012 when she fell and had a brain concussion that took her more than a month to recover._

According to Gallup Poll, worldwide approval of the U.S. actually fell by at least 3 points between the time Hillary became secretary of state and when she left the post, from 49% to 46%.

world approval of US 2007-2015

Lie No. 4

Bill Clinton said, referring to Hillary:

“Whether in office or out of office, she has consistently gotten the job done in an honorable way.” (p. 8 of transcript)

The truth:

Abandoning four Americans — including two members of her State Department staff, Ambassador Chris Stephens and Information Officer Sean Smith — to die in Benghazi is dishonorable. Lying that the jihadist attack on the U.S. consulate in Benghazi on Sept. 11, 2012, was provoked by an obscure video on Muhammad is dishonorable. (Note that world approval of the U.S. plummeted to 41% in 2012.) When grilled about her lies by Congress, sloughing it off with “What does it matter now?” is dishonorable. Conducting government business, including classified national security information, with an illegal unsecured private email server is dishonorable.

Then there are remarks by Bill Clinton in his speech at the Chesapeake Fundraiser which (unintentionally) perfectly describes Hillary. Here’s an example: In his speech, Bill Clinton said this about the GOP primary debates:

“These people actually think they can insult their way to the White House . . . .”

The truth:

In a speech on September 10, 2016, Hillary Clinton insulted millions of Americans when she called half of Trump’s supporters “a basket of deplorables” who are “irredeemable” racists, homophobes and xenophobes.

In fact, in an email on April 19, 2015, referring to Hillary Clinton, her campaign chairman John Podesta wrote:

“I know she has begun to hate everyday Americans

And yet, in his Chesapeake Beach speech, before admitting that “the political system is rigged,” Bill actually had the chutzpah to say that Hillary Clinton “deserves” the White House and that voters shouldn’t “disappoint her” by voting for somebody else:

“Whether in office or out of office, she has consistently gotten the job done in an honorable way. She deserves this (inaudible). And she will not disappoint you. But to get there, we have to not disappoint her.” (p. 8 of transcript)

No wonder self-coronated Queen Hillary went ballistic in a teleconference with the Laborers’ International Union of North America on Sept. 22, 2016, screaming into the camera: “Why aren’t I 50 points ahead?”

To conclude, if we take Bill Clinton at his own words — that working class Americans think “the political system is rigged against them” and they “want to vote for whoever they think will raise the most hell” — Donald Trump is the man, not Hillary Clinton.

Owned by Wall Street and the darling of the entire corrupt, rotten establishment of the MSM, Hollywood, banks, unions, George Soros, and party (Democrat and Republican) élites, Hillary Clinton is the last person to raise hell, even less to “raise the most hell”.
