Hillary wants to redistribute income around the world

By AP Staff

NEW YORK (AP) - Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton says she wants foreign countries to make elite citizens pay their fair share of taxes.

Reflecting the American debate over taxing the rich, Clinton on Monday addressed participants in her husband's Clinton Global Initiative.

The annual forum brings together leaders in politics, business and philanthropy to tackle the world's biggest problems.

Clinton says the U.S. will help struggling nations become self-sufficient rather than offering traditional aid. She says taxing the wealthy would bolster such growth.

The secretary of state says she's now out of politics. She has said she plans to retire after elections.

    So let me get this straight. There is no empirical evidence to show that raising taxes increases revenue and in fact show exactly the opposite. Yet the progs/libs want to raise taxes anyway. Sigh. It must be so difficult to be as intelligent as they are so you don’t have to actually use facts in your arguments.

      Shillary is almost as far to the left as Comrade Obama; they are both disciples of Saul Alinsky. She is lying about not being involved in politics. The Clintons made a deal with Obama; Bill would actively support Obama in this election, and Obama agreed to support Hillary’s presidential campaign in 2016. Bet on it!

      “She says taxing the wealthy would bolster such growth.”

      But like all die-hard liberals, she isn’t talking about her own money. She wants to tax the “other” wealthy people.

      “The secretary of state says she’s now out of politics. She has said she plans to retire after elections.”

      However, we know from experience that Hillary has made false claims before. Didn’t she tell the people of NY that IF she was elected Senator she would not run for president? She learned that from her husband when he told Arkansas if they would allow him a four-year term as governor he would fulfill his term and not run for president? DON’T BELIEVE THESE LIARS!

    PLEASE promise me that HILLARY will stay out of politics!

    I see bumper stickers in AR that say: ” I MISS BILL ” I don’t understand this because these two just won’t go away! In AR we now have the Little Rock airport named after BOTH of them….
    “THE BILL AND HILLARY AIRPORT”….OH, and we have the Presidential Library that looks like a very large TRAILER in downtown Little Rock. Maybe we in Ar should change the capital to: HILLBILLARY Country instead of Little Rock, AR. ????

      I was surprised that even after Clinton moved to New York, the state of Arkansas had the stones to change their signs at the state borders. They used to boast about being the “Home of Bill Clinton”.

    Her comments are the epitome of ‘Secular-Progressive Elitist Tone-Deafness’. She states that the “US will help struggling nations become self-sufficient rather than offering traditional aid”. She could start with the struggling nation of the USA. In our current fiscal and monetary condition, we can’t help anyone until we fix ourselves first. And that can’t happen until the eviction notice goes out on Nov. 7th at 1600 Pennsylvania Ave. It is no small wonder that the world looks at our current leadership and laughs at us. It’s high-time for the ‘adults’ to regain control of the playroom and call for a timeout.

      It’s rather amazing to hear her say such things right now. We’ve always known she was a socialist…if not a communist…but she was able to hide it pretty well. She must think the on-going campaign of “class-envy” has reached the point that such sentiment would not be looked on negatively, even by the traditionally capitalistic U.S.

    Hillary is now running scared of War Crimes Charges under the Geneva Convention.

    Hillary can be held accountable, under the Geneva Convention, for the 30,000 Libyan men, women and children that were slaughtered with the 2,000 Al Qaeda whom Hillary used US funds to arm and support.

    Today Hillary is responsible for over 30,000 Syrian men, women and children, whom she slaughtered by funding the same Al Qaeda to overthrow Syria. This is a second grievous War Crime under the Geneva convention, the Hague Convention, and the UN Charter.

    Hillary Clinton’s College thesis was about a man who told how you could get the citizens of the U.S. to go along with what your desires for them were, and after they accepted your plan, how to make them like it. The man’s name that Hillary Clinton thought so much of was Sail Alinsky, who for one thing wrote “Rules For Radicals.”

    Does this explain to you where Hillary’s mindset and ideas come from?

    Ms. Clinton, Milk The Cow Lady, needs to redistribute her own millions around the world. If she hands her dollars to each Dictator, the poor people will never see a dime of it. That’s why they are Third World Countries because the buck stops in the Dictator’s pockets. They envy what the United States has and Obama is making sure they don’t envy any more. He’s a fruitcake!

    Redistributing America’s wealth, power, and influence to the third world is the Obama Dream which she (and Bill) have bought into … or more probably ‘have been bought’ to support.

    The whole thing is explained in the movie “2016 Obama’s America”.

    “The secretary of state says she’s now out of politics. She has said she plans to retire after elections.”

    The best news I heard all week.

    You have to give Bill, Hilly, and BHO credit – or maybe he credit goes to the media…

    … but you have three politicians that accomplished little or nothing in their lives, and they are still thought of as “Wonder-Persons”.

    Clinton accomplished nothing but welfare reform – wait, it was the republicans that dragged him screaming and kicking into wellfare reform.

    BHO accomplished nothing except health care reform, which the country didn’t (and doesn’t) want, and it has already seriously damaged the world’s best medical care system.

    Yet, these three people are treated like political Gods, instead of being ground up by the truth machine – you gotta give ‘em credit for hutzpa, if nothing else…

    She knows BHO will not be re-elected and that her progressive ideas will not sell in 2016, so she might as well hang it up since she will be 65 in Oct. and would then be 70 when she ran for president. She looks like she doesn’t feel very good now any way. Way too much travel and no sleep.

    That sorry excuse for a human being better retire, because she would never make it into the White House, which is where she would dearly love to go. I think the people of NY are nuts for ever electing her in the first place, but then they will put anyone in office that is a democrat, no matter how bad they stink.

    I would dearly love to see her and Bill’s money sent to all those third world countries they want to send money to and see how they like that. How about for once we take their money instead of them taking ours. For someone that is supposed to be smart, she is the dumbest person I have ever seen. That idiot hasn’t gotten it through her thick head yet that we don’t want her as our President. She is the last person that we would put up there and no matter how smart she thinks she is, she just can’t get that through her thick scull. Maybe if she ran one more time she would finally get it.

    She is the sorriest Congresswoman we ever had, the sorriest Secretary of State and if it would not for Obama’s wife she would have been the sorriest First Lady we ever had, but thankfully for her, Obama’s wife managed to take that title away from her. She is running a close second though……………………
