Hillary Clinton made history Thursday night at the 2016 Democratic National Convention in Philadelphia as the first woman to accept the nomination of a major American political party for president of the United States.

Introduced to the audience by her daughter Chelsea, Clinton’s speech was hard-hitting and gave no quarter, moving methodically through a checklist of issues that had been mentioned by Sanders and Trump, after initial thanks.

“I want to thank Bernie Sanders. Bernie, your campaign inspired millions of Americans. To all of your supporters here and around the country: I want you to know, I’ve heard you. You’ve put economic and social justice issues front and center, where they belong,” she said.

The “woman thing” was big; Clinton’s daughter spent most of her speech talking about her mother’s commitment to family and women’s issues. Clinton herself returned to the theme repeatedly during her own speech as well. “If fighting for affordable child care and paid family leave is playing the woman card, then deal me in!” she emphasized, to wild cheers from the crowd.

She said she was “proud” of the Iran nuclear deal signed last year with the five world powers led by the United States. “I’m proud that we put a lid on Iran’s nuclear program without firing a single shot — now we have to enforce it, and keep supporting Israel’s security,” she said. Later in her speech, she again tossed in a single reference to Israel, again the lone throwaway line, “and we must keep supporting Israel’s security,” tucked in among other items on her laundry list. But she offered no details, nor did she make any other reference to America’s strongest ally in the region.

Emphasizing that Trump has “bombast” but “no plan” Clinton offered her own strategy for dealing with the Da’esh terrorist organization: “Strike ISIS from the air and support local forces taking them out on the ground.”

She also took the opportunity to add, “Donald Trump says, and this is a quote, ‘I know more about ISIS than even the generals do.’ No Donald, you don’t.”

Doubling down on her opponent, she accused Trump of disrespect for the nation’s military, using his off-the-cuff slap at the Obama Administration calling the military a “disaster” as a springboard as an opportunity to scold him: “Our military is a national treasure. A president should respect the men and women who risk their lives to serve their country.”

To the delegates, she said, “Just ask yourselves, do you really think Donald Trump has the temperament to be a president of the United States? He loses his cool at the drop of a hat. Donald Trump can’t even handle the rough-and-tumble of a presidential campaign. Imagine him in the Oval Office facing a real crisis.

“A man you can bait with a tweet is not a man we can trust with nuclear weapons,” Clinton warned.

A former member of the White House Secret Service detail assigned to the Clinton family who was interviewed by Sean Hannity Thursday night on Fox News warned, however, that Hillary Clinton’s temperament is equally touchy. In fact, he said, there were times that Clinton was downright abusive and ‘staff was terrified.” She was charming “when big donors were around,” but could be vicious at other times, he said.

Producers of the introduction video prior to her appearance made sure to insert a quick photo of Clinton sitting with President Barack Obama and other officials during the Al Qaeda-linked Ansar Maqdis al Sharia terrorist siege of the US Consulate and the CIA Annex in Benghazi, Libya.

  1. Get this out soon, He is Edward “Ed” Mezvinsky, born January 17, 1937.
    Then you’ll probably say, “Who is Ed Mezvinsky?”
    Well, he is a former Democrat congressman who represented Iowa ’s 1st congressional district in the United States House of Representatives for two terms, from 1973 to 1977.
    He sat on the House Judiciary Committee that decided the fate of Richard Nixon.
    He was outspoken saying that Nixon was a crook and a disgrace to politics and the nation and should be impeached.
    He and the Clintons were friends and very politically
    intertwined for many years.
    Ed Mezvinsky had an affair with NBC News reporter Marjorie Sue Margolies and later married her after his wife divorced him.
    In 1993, Marjorie Margolies-Mezvinsky, then a freshman Democrat in Congress, cast the deciding vote that got President Bill Clinton’s controversial tax package through the House of Representatives.
    In March 2001, Mezvinsky was indicted and later pleaded guilty to 31 of 69 counts of bank fraud, mail fraud, and wire fraud.
    Ed Mezvinsky embezzled more than $10 million dollars from people via both a Ponzi scheme and the notorious Nigerian e-mail scams.
    He was found guilty and sentenced to 80 months in federal prison.
    After serving less than five years in federal prison, he was released in April 2008 and remains on federal probation.
    To this day, he still owes $9.4 million in restitution to his victims.
    About now you are saying, “So what!”
    Well, this is Marc and Chelsea Mezvinsky:
    image002.jpg?w=474
    That’s right; Ed Mezvinsky is Chelsea Clinton’s father-in-law.
    Now Marc and Chelsea are in their early thirties and purchased a 10.5 million dollar NYC apartment
    Has anyone heard mention of any of this in any of the media?
    If this guy was Jenna or Barbara Bush’s, or better yet, Sarah Palin’s daughter’s father-in- law, the news would be an everyday headline and every detail would be reported over and over.
    Yet they say there are no double standards in political reporting.
    People are already talking about Hillarious as our next President!
    And then there is possibly Chelsea for President in our future!
    The cycle never ends!
    Lying and corruption seem to make Democrat candidates more popular.

  2. clinton, if elected would be by far a worse president even than obama hussain. I would say that Trump is not alone in this descission making process, and this hillary bitch knows this very well. No president can go to work one morning a just decide all by himself to push the button. She is trying to purposely frighten ignorant voters about something she knows is false. On the other hand, she wouldn't push it if she had to, and I believe if Trump needed to make a snap descission regarding this issue, he would make the right one. I don't hillary is capable of anything but saving her own ass and her money.

  3. Hilary Clinto shows her charm to an audience. But privately, she is a witch, with a vile temper.
    If she, G0D forbid becomes president, then that will be the start of the downfall of USA.
    One must also look at her choice of VP> A supporter of the Muslim Brotherhood.
    What does that tell the world who she is.
    She should have been locked up in prison for all the treachery she has done. She was responsible for many US deaths.

    WE must all hope and prsy the DONALD TRUMP WILL BE ELECTED TO THE WHITE HOUSE.

    I would love to see the witche's face and temper when that happens.

  4. Just another crook, plagiarizing other people’s words….. what a liar, she is…. she uses people for her own gain, and when she is done, she throws them away like garbage…. being a Jewish, the question I have, will she turn her back on Israel and the Jewish people….. probably so….. !!!!!!!

  5. I vehemently disagree with the whole Iran agreement and all who supported it, including Mike Pence. But to quote your hero Trump, "anyone can make a mistake". The biggest mistake was made by Momma Trump who didn't use birth control.

  6. But according to Hell-ary, Iran can be trusted with nukes and trusted to spend $150 billion wisely, piously, peacefully! What a phoney! (Also Hellary feels that she herself can't be trusted to handle our economy, so she wants to give that job to hubby Bill IF she were to be elected.)
