At an Iowa Press conference in September, Democratic Nominee Hillary Clinton said, “Today I want to send a message to every survivor of sexual assault,” Clinton said. “Don’t let anyone silence your voice. You have the right to be heard. You have the right to be believed, and we’re with you.”
As Philip Hodges pointed out in a post at Eagle Rising the top of the Campus Sexual Assault page on Ms. Clinton’s campaign site posted the quote above, but strangely left out the part about having the right to be believed.
Philip’s article made me wonder, why would she take out the part about having the right to be believe?
It occurred to me that there there are fourteen reasons why she took that part of her quote out. Well thirteen plus one. There are fourteen women who she doesn’t want believed. The thirteen women (that we know of) who were sexually assaulted by her husband former POTUS Bubba Clinton, plus Monica Lewinsky:
- Juanita Broaddrick who claims she was raped by Bill Clinton and Hillary tried to silence her. “she says, he got her onto the bed, held her down forcibly and bit her lips. The sexual entry itself was not without some pain, she recalls, because of her stiffness and resistance. When it was over, she says, he looked down at her and said not to worry, he was sterile–he had had mumps when he was a child.”
- Kathleen Willey who told 60 Minutes that Bubba assaulted her in the White House. “he had his arms — they were tight around me, and he — he — he touched me, he touched my breasts with his hand, and, I — I — I — I was — I — I was just startled. And — then he — whispered — he — he — said in — in my ears that, “I — I’ve wanted to do this ever since I laid eyes on you.” And — I remember — I remember saying to him, “aren’t you afraid that somebody’s going to walk in here?” The — and, he said — he said, “no. No, I’m — no, I’m not.” And — and then — and — and then he took my hand, and he — and he put it on him. [On — on his genitals she says later]. And, that’s when I pushed away from him and — and decided it was time to get out of there.
- Paula Jones who sued he president for exposing himself to her in an Arkansas hotel room. It was a deposition in this lawsuit where Bubba committee perjury about Monica Lewinsky
- Sandra Allen James who was pinned against a wall by he former president as he stuck his hand up her dress (Ms. James loud scream caused the Arkansas State Trooper outside the door to knock spoiling Bubba’s moment),
- Eileen Wellstone, an English woman who said Mr. Clinton sexually assaulted her after she met him at a pub near Oxford University where Mr. Clinton was a student in 1969. Neither Ms. Wellstone nor her family wanted to pursue the case, and a report filed at the time by a State Department official was ignored by superiors. Apparently, the State Department didn’t want a Rhodes Scholar to have a rape charge.
- Carolyn Moffet a legal secretary in Little Rock who was invited to Bill’s hotel room after a fundraiser. When she arrived she discovered Bubba sitting on a couch only wearing a t-shirt. “When I went in, he was sitting on a couch, wearing only an undershirt. He pointed at his penis and told me to suck it. I told him I didn’t even do that for my boyfriend, and he got mad, grabbed my head and shoved it into his lap. I pulled away from him and ran out of the room,”
- Christy Zercher, an airline flight attendant on Mr. Clinton’s 1992 campaign plane, who said Mr. Clinton exposed himself, grabbed her breasts and made explicit remarks about oral sex. Ms. Zercher said later in an interview that White House attorney Bruce Lindsey tried to pressure her into not going public about the assault.
- Helen Dowdy, the wife of Hillary Clinton’s cousin, claims she was groped by Bill Clinton at a wedding in 1986. She told Jerry Oppenheimer, the author of State of a Union: Inside the Complex Marriage of Bill and Hillary Clinton
- In 1972, when he was attending Yale (and dating Hillary) a 22-year-old woman told campus police at Yale University that she was sexually assaulted by Clinton, a law student at the college. No charges were filed, but retired campus policemen contacted by Capitol Hill Blue confirmed the incident. The woman, tracked down by Capitol Hill Blue in 2007, confirmed the incident, but declined to discuss it further and would not give permission to use her name.
- Also according to Capitol Hill Blue, “former Arkansas students confirmed that Clinton tried to force himself on them when he was a professor.”
These next three examples come from the Daily Wire:
- Roger Morris wrote in “Partners In Power” that another unnamed victim accused Clinton of unwanted sexual advances: A young woman lawyer in Little Rock claimed that she was accosted by Clinton while he was attorney general and that when she recoiled he forced himself on her, biting and bruising her. Deeply affected by the assault, the woman decided to keep it all quiet for the sake of her own hard-won career and that of her husband. When the husband later saw Clinton at the 1980 Democratic Convention, he delivered a warning. “If you ever approach her,” he told the governor, “I’ll kill you.” Not even seeing fit to deny the incident, Bill Clinton sheepishly apologized and duly promised never to bother her again.
- In the book, “Uncovering Clinton,: another woman, “the wife of a prominent Democrat” (who remained unnamed), accused Clinton of sexual abuse in 1996. Clinton started getting physical, trying to kiss her, touching her breasts. The woman said she was stunned. She had no idea how to respond. “I’ve never had a man take advantage of me like that” … As Clinton pressed himself on her, she said, she resisted–and finally pushed him away. What happened after that? I asked. Clinton turned away, she said. She hesitated, and she said softly and with apparent discomfort, “I think he finished the job himself.”
- Lt. Col. Robert “Buzz” Patterson wrote a book about Clinton called, Dereliction of Duty in which he accounted yet another victim of sexual abuse by the then-president. He wrote that a female stewardess on Air Force One complained that Clinton “sexually molested” and “cornered” her on the flight. Per Patterson, the woman only “wanted an apology.”
Then of course there is Monica Lewinsky. Technically this one was consensual, but IMHO when a married President of the United States takes advantage of a 21-year-old woman…it’s feels pretty close to statutory rape, and besides once things became public Hillary lead the effort to destroy her.
There were other women who claim to have had affairs with the former president, and some of them such as Sally Miller are so frightened of Hillary Clinton sleeps with a gun under her pillow.
According to campaign narratives written by reporters detailed how she honchoed the campaign team that handled “bimbo eruptions,” digging up personal papers and official records that could be used to undercut the stories told by a series of women. One top aide later recounted Mrs. Clinton’s intent to “destroy” the story of one accuser, while former adviser Dick Morris said Mrs. Clinton engaged in “blackmail” to try to force women to recant their stories.
This is the woman the Democrats are counting on protecting women?
