The following is from an essay written by William Satire in The New York Times [1/8/96) entitled Blizzard Of Lies: “Americans of all political persuasions are coming to the sad realization that our First Lady — a woman of undoubted talents who was a role model for many in her generation — is a congenital liar. 

Remember the story she told about studying The Wall Street Journal to explain her 10,000 percent profit in 1979 commodity trading? 

We now know that was a lie told to turn aside accusations that as the governor’s wife she profited corruptly....”

This in The Wall  Street Journal on 7/29/16 : “Mrs. Clinton’s problem is Mrs. Clinton. She is running against her own ethical morass. Already she was asking voters to forget about cattle futures and fake sniper fire and Whitewater and Travelgate....the FBI director ...attested that she was careless with classified information; and she was caught telling a series of lies about the situation.”  

And she doubled down on the Chris Wallace show when she lied about the email server saying the FBI director exonerated her!  

A professional liar!  

Remember when she claimed she was named after a famous mountain climber when his achievement happened years after she was born. And she claimed, when she lived in Arkansas, she wanted to join the U.S. Marines.  

Believe her?

Finally, a thought from a Mr. Joshua Berman living in Chateau-d’Oex, Switzerland [The Wall Street Journal on 7/25/16): “There are times when the devil you know is so bad you choose the devil you don’t know.”
