“We just can’t trust the American people to make those kinds of choices……….Government has to make those choices for people.” ~ Hillary Clinton
But wait……………there’s more
Hillary Clinton states that she is named after Sir Edmund Percival Hillary. Ms. Hillary Diane Rodham was born in Chicago on October 26, 1947. Oddly the annals of history don’t seem to support that chain of thought.
Sir Edmund originally made application to the military at the outbreak of WWII , but due to religious objections withdrew his application, and was later conscripted to serve in 1943. Shortly after that time, her supposed namesake was repatriated to New Zealand from Fiji and the Solomon Islands following a rather unspectacular stint as a navigator. He had suffered burns in a non-military conflict boating accident in 1945 and was removed from the New Zealand Royal Air Force. 1Calder, Peter (11 January 2008). “Sir Edmund Hillary’s life”.

Was this the man the Rodhams had hoped to honor and now the candidate wants to build her reputation on? No. If they supposedly wanted to highlight his fame and notoriety by the conquering of Mt. Everest – or quite possibly Hillary made this revelation herself – the fact remains that this feat of ascending the mount did not occur until 28 May 1953 – Well after the birth of Hillary Rodham.
In fact – there is no photographic evidence of the accomplishment and the 2 climbers – Hillary and Tenzing – went to the summit and only remained at the peak for 15 minutes. The entire expedition consisted of over 400 and included 362 porters. Pretty spectacular stuff, eh?
So the bottom line is: You’re going to get what you paid for if you support Hillary in 2016.
