Hillary Clinton Flip Flop and Hypocrisy List -2016

I am a Democrat. I have always voted Democratic party, never Republican. I voted for Barack Obama in the last two elections, and am a woman. I will not vote for Hillary Clinton. Period. Ever. I believe she will say anything or do anything to be president. She ran a dirty campaign against Barack Obama in 2008 but it failed. She's trying the exact same tactics against Bernie Sanders now. The DNC also seems to be in the tank for her, and against grassroots being able to vote in who they support without the spectre of superdelegates changing the equation. Add to that the apparent myth that someone the Democratic party is better than the Republican party, at least as far as how it conducts itself. Clinton, with her dirty tricks, flip flopping and attempts to hide her actual positions, is more like how a Republican acts. Same thing for a whole lot of her supporters, who are pretty disgusting. If she manages to fool enough people to get the nomination, I"m done with the Democratic party forever and will be an independent.
Clinton recently touted her experience with guns as a young child.
"You know, my dad took me out behind the cottage that my grandfather built on a little lake called Lake Winola outside of Scranton and taught me how to shoot when I was a little girl," Clinton said in Valparaiso, Indiana, on Saturday.
"Some people now continue to teach their children and their grandchildren. It's part of culture. It's part of a way of life. People enjoy hunting and shooting because it's an important part of who they are. Not because they are bitter."
Clinton’s response poses a fact-checking conundrum. She is explaining what she thinks her husband believed — entering the realm of opinions and suppositions, not checkable facts. But she also says “there was certainly evidence to support” the belief that “there was enough political momentum” to ban gay marriage by amending the U.S. Constitution. Therefore, President Clinton had to make a defensive move, which resulted in DOMA, she said.
We always place the burden of proof on the speaker. However, the Clinton campaign declined to comment in response to our inquiries. So we examined whether there really is evidence to support her explanation that there was enough political momentum to amend the U.S. Constitution, and that “there had to be some way to stop that.” What we found was a lot murkier than she made it seem. The evidence, if any, is pretty slim.
Other emails show Clinton seeming to personally lobby her former Democratic colleagues in the Senate to support free trade agreements (FTAs) with Colombia, Panama and South Korea. She had previously told voters she would work to block the Colombian and South Korean pacts.
An email Oct. 8, 2011, to Clinton from her aide Huma Abedin gave notes about the state of play in Congress on the proposed trade pacts. The notes provided Clinton “some background before you make the calls” to legislators.
Two days later in an email titled “FTA calls,” Clinton wrote to aides indicating she had spoken to Sens. Jack Reed of Rhode Island and Jim Webb of Virginia, both Democrats. She told the aides she had talked with “Webb who is strong in favor of all 3” trade agreements, and then asked, “So why did I call him?” — indicating she was otherwise phoning to try to convince wavering lawmakers to support the deals.
Only three years earlier, Clinton wooed organized labor during her presidential campaign with promises to oppose those same deals. She called the South Korea agreement “inherently unfair.” She also said, “I will do everything I can to urge the Congress to reject the Colombia Free Trade Agreement.” Clinton has lately courted organized labor’s support for her current presidential bid by pledging to oppose the 12-nation Trans-Pacific Partnership agreement, a deal she repeatedlytouted while secretary of state.
VALPARAISO, Ind. – Senator Hillary Rodham Clinton managed to co-opt Mr. Obama’s message of hope and optimism, beginning a speech in Valparaiso, Ind., by talking about how positive and “fundamentally optimistic” Americans are.
Though the Vermont senator has repeatedly said he wants to avoid a negative campaign, Mr. Sanders delivered one of his most striking critiques of Mrs. Clinton yet, accusing her of mirroring his style and highlighting their differences on the campaign finance system and trade policies. The comments come as Mr. Sanders is fighting to prove he can remain viable in the race, which will mean broadening his support beyond the thousands of young people and working-class whites that pack his events.
“I have to say that I am delighted that Secretary Clinton, month after month after month, seems to be adopting more and more of the positions that we have advocated. That’s good,” Mr. Sanders said, adding that Mrs. Clinton was “beginning to use a lot of the language and phraseology that we have used.”
“In fact, I think I saw a TV ad and thought it was me. But it turned out it was Secretary Clinton’s picture in the end,” Mr. Sanders said at a news conference at an ironworkers union office in Boston.
Mr. Sanders went on to imply that Mrs. Clinton’s stances on issues were not as genuine as his own.
“But the people of Massachusetts and the people of the United States need to know the difference between hastily adopted campaign rhetoric and the real record and long-held ideas of the candidates,” Mr. Sanders said.
