Former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin refuted accusations that presidential candidate Donald Trump is anti-woman during a Friday speech as she lambasted Democratic candidate Hillary Clinton for her role in the Benghazi terror attack, her false assertions about a visit to Bosnia, her “quid pro quo deals,” and her email scandal.
The 2008 vice presidential candidate said to the Western Conservative Summit, “They have tried that tired, worn, war on woman warpath to jump on. I ask, Trump supporters? We’re anti-woman?”
Palin turned the narrative on Clinton. “Anti-liberal woman who blew it in Benghazi and b.s.’d in Bosnia and buffaloed business with her quid pro quo deals and hid emails in some dude’s bathroom. That kind of woman, yeah sure, but women in general, certainly not.”
A 2008 speech at George Washington University marked one of several times Clinton lied about coming under sniper fire after landing at a Bosnian airstrip. A Washington Post reporter who was there for Clinton’s arrival revealed the brazen falsehood in the midst of the 2008 presidential primaries. News footage that came to light shows Clinton walking calmly with 16-year-old daughter Chelsea, speaking with a group of people and an 8-year-old girl who greeted her with a poem.
This week the House Select Committee on Benghazi released their 800-page report on the September 11, 2012 Islamic terror attack in Libya. Committee member Rep. Jim Jordan emphasized that Libya was supposed to be the “crowning jewel” of Clinton’s State Department and the Obama administration’s foreign policy approach. Jordan referenced an email between Clinton confidant Sidney Blumenthal and the then-Secretary just days after the fall of the country’s dictator Muammar Gaddafi before he said, “They were so committed, it didn’t matter that there were 200 security incidents between the time Blumenthal sent the email and when the terrorist attack happens.” U.S. Ambassador to Libya Chris Stevens made repeated requests for added security before the attack that left him dead.
Breitbart Editor-At-Large Peter Schweizer devoted an entire book to the shady deals of former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and her former President husband Bill. Clinton Cash details financially beneficial relationships between foreign governments and businesses and the Clintons. Just one such instance laid out is the Uranium One deal that left the Russian government in control of one fifth of the United States’ uranium assets. Former Secretary Hillary Clinton’s State Department was one of the entities involved in approving the deal. Schweizer documents that the Clinton Foundation received $145 million in cash from eight of the company’s shareholders leading up to approval of the lucrative deal.
Another questionable deal involves a Swedish telecom company, a State Department investigation into Swedish companies dealing illegally with Iran, a $20 million donation to the Clinton foundation, and the telecom company’s payment of $750,000 to Bill Clinton to give a speech. Schweitzer detailed that seven days after the former U.S. President was paid, then-Secretary Hillary Clinton’s State Department released the company to police itself.
The Federal Bureau of Investigation is deep in the midst of an investigation into the national security threat posed when the then-Secretary of State used a private email server over which she sent “top secret” information.
U.S. Attorney General Loretta Lynch and former President Bill Clinton drew serious questions as to whether the investigation of Clinton’s communication would be handled without bias after the two met aboard a private plane at a Phoenix airport this week.
Former House Speaker Newt Gingrich highlighted one aspect of Hillary Clinton’s record with women in May when he told Breitbart News Daily radio listeners that the Clinton Foundation pays men 38 percent more than they pay women.
Ahead of a Trump rally in Anaheim, California, Trump debuted a group of women professionals that formed the new Women in Business for Trump.
Trump Organization executive Lynne Patton put out a YouTube video in May seeking to dispel attacks against Trump’s record with women. She called the Trump family “incredibly loyal…hiring more minority and female executives than any other company for which I have worked.”
