The reality of Hillary Rodham Clinton might best be described by the following figures:
65,000 – The number of Syrian refugees Hillary wants to inflict on America next year, a 550% increase over what Obama planned to bring in. ISIS boasts that it’s planted fighters among the refugees. In Europe, fresh waves of terrorism have followed the influx. On New Year’s Eve, refugees molested scores of women in Cologne and other German cities. Omar Mateen (who killed 49 in Orlando in June) wasn’t a refuge, just a highly motivated Muslim. Omar’s father, also an Islamist, showed up at an August 8 Clinton rally, where Hillary told those who’d lost loved ones in the Orlando massacre, “We will be with you as you rebuild your lives,” while she works to ensure a steady supply of future victims and grieving families.
350,000 – The number of criminal aliens ICE has released. According to Representative Trey Gowdy, they include “those convicted of 10,000 assaults, more than 800 sexual assaults, more than 400 homicide-related offenses, and more than 300 kidnappings.” Under Obama, millions of illegal aliens have been amnestied by unconstitutional executive orders. In a 2013 speech to a Brazilian bank, Clinton said she had a dream of a “hemispheric common market, with open trade and open borders” – her dream, our nightmare.
11 – The number of days following the murder of four Americans in Benghazi that Hillary lied to the American people. The day of the attack, she told her daughter it was caused by “an al-Qaeda-like group.” She told the public, “We’ve seen rage and violence directed at American embassies over an awful Internet video we had nothing to do with.” It wasn’t until September 21 that she finally admitted the truth. If Hillary lies so easily, it’s because she has so much practice.
Trending: Former Kavanaugh Law Clerk Speaks Out
23 years – How long Hillary has been in DC, including 8 years as First Lady, 6 years in the United States Senate and 4 years as Secretary of State. More of a Washington insider you do not get. Can you say “agent of change,” with a straight face?
$2.4 billion – The National Debt grows by this amount every day. Under Obama, whose fiscal policies Hillary resolutely defends, the National Debt went from $10.6 trillion to $19.7 trillion. Three of her proposals alone – free college tuition, new infrastructure spending and subsidies to fix Obamacare, would lead to another deficit-spending binge. Hillary’s spend-like-there’s-no-tomorrow and buy-votes-from-the-Treasury mentality is how we got into this mess in the first place.
$22.5 million – Hillary’s net worth, as estimated by Forbes. Some think this is absurdly low. When she was on the speaking circuit, her fees started at $225,000. From 2001 to the launch of her presidential campaign in April 2015, Bill and Hillary earned a total of $153 million in combined speaking fees. She also received an $8-million advance in 2000 for her memoir, “Where The Money Is,” co-authored by Willie Sutton.
$7.7 million – The sum Mrs. Clinton received for speeches to Wall Street banks like Goldman Sachs. It’s estimated that for every dollar the Trump campaign got from Wall Street, Hillary received $539 – great credentials for a tribune of the people.
11% – The percentage of Americans who believe Hillary is “honest and trustworthy,” versus 14% who believe in Bigfoot, 36% who believe in UFOs, 41% who believe the Bermuda Triangle is dangerous and 48% who believe in ghosts.
More than 1/3 – While Hillary was Secretary of State, foreign entities accounted for one-third of all donations to the Clinton Foundation in excess of $1 million. Coincidentally, many had business with the State Department.
85 out of 154 – Of 154 scheduled meetings with non-governmental personnel that Hillary had as Secretary of State, 85 were with high-dollar donors to the Clinton Foundation. Coincidences abound.
5.6% – The percentage of all Clinton Foundation income that actually went to charity in 2014. It spent seven times more on salaries that year. The foundation is a money-laundering operation and a cash cow for the Clintons and their cronies.
96% – The percentage of all media political donations (from editors, reporters and anchors) that went to the Clinton campaign. There were also non-monetary contributions. On October 26, The New York Times did a front-page story on Muslim children who have scary dreams about Donald Trump. I’m waiting for an interview with someone who heard that Trump was once mean to a small mammal.
Hikes averaging 25% – The average increase in Obamacare premiums next year. In some states, it will be worse. In Arizona, those subscribing to certain plans will see their premiums climb 116%. Hillary wants to fix Obamacare with a combination of subsidies and moving toward a single-payer system, which she’s always wanted. She started pushing the nation in this direction in 1993, with her abortive Hillarycare. Thus, she sees the failure of Obamacare as an opportunity to further collectivize U.S. health care.
33,000 – The number of e-mails deleted from Hillary’s private server, on which she kept classified State Department documents. The candidate claims they had nothing to do with national security, but were about personal stuff – like yoga classes. Sure, and Bill Clinton spent an hour on a tarmac at the Phoenix Airport with Attorney General Loretta Lynch, talking about their grandchildren.
206,000 – The number of ex-felons whose voting rights Virginia Governor Terry McAuliffe (a key Clinton ally) tried to restore. The move was eventually blocked by a state court. Surveys have shown that in states which allow ex-felons to vote, they favor Democrats by a six-to-one margin. Ex-cons have a natural affinity for the party of plunder. One gang steals with guns, the other with government.
300 million – The number of firearms in the United States and the number Hillary wants to confiscate. While claiming to support the Second Amendment, she says the Heller case (District of Columbia v Heller, 2008), which recognized that the Second Amendment guarantees an individual right, “was wrongly decided.” DC’s total ban on handguns (overturned by Heller) was meant to “keep toddlers” from injuring themselves or killing others, she explains. She favors “reasonable” restrictions – defined as anything which will limit access to firearms.
5 – The number of police officers killed on July 8 in Dallas, the bloodiest day for American law enforcement since 9/11. The shooter said he was “upset at white people” and wanted to kill as many as possible, especially cops. At that point, 26 officers had been killed in 2016, up 44% over the same period in 2015. In a CNN interview the same day, Clinton said “white people, like myself, (have) to put ourselves in the shoes of those African American families” who fear for their children every time they leave the house. Apparently, they have nothing to fear from street gangs in their neighborhoods, only from ubiquitous white racism, symbolized by killer cops. Not surprisingly, the National Fraternal Order of Police, the nation’s largest police union, has endorsed Trump.
As many as 4 – The number of lifetime appointments to the Supreme Court Hillary could make if elected. The justice chosen to replace Scalia could give the left a 5-4 or 6-3 majority, depending on which way Kennedy swings. Four of the remaining justices range in age from 68 to 83. According to Hillary, the proper role of SCOTUS isn’t to interpret the Constitution, but to determine the “type of country we will be.” She would give us a court that legislates from the bench the left’s cause du jour, including mandating access to ladies rooms for men suffering from the delusion that they’re women. If Hillary wins, you can kiss your Constitutional rights – including life, privacy and religious liberty – goodbye.
0 – The number of jobs Hillary has created in her lifetime. She’s never built anything, made anything, or sold anything (except BS). All of her experience is at destroying jobs – through taxation, regulation and negotiating trade deals that export jobs. Forget job creation, she’s never even held a real job herself.
The number we’re really looking forward to learning is the one on Hillary’s mug shot when she’s booked.
