    If I ever had any doubts about her evilness this solidifies it. How dare she release a book on September 12th!
    with as much controversy as there has been around Benghazi (September 11, 2012) with whatever Hillary did or did not do, then she should be smart enough to have respect for the victims that were killed and not release her book around the same date.

    this is her book, she can completely control when it was released to the public. so many other times throughout the year, release it another time. but we already know that Hillary Clinton doesn't care about anyone other than Hillary Clinton.

    Clinton book adds voter ID laws to list of reasons why she lost
    Hillary Clinton's newly released campaign memoir adds voter ID laws and Supreme Court Chief Justice John Roberts to the list of reasons why she lost the 2016 presidential election.

    In “What Happened,” which was formally released on Tuesday, Clinton tells the full, 469-page “story” of what she “saw, felt and thought during two of the most intense years” she’s ever experienced.

    She kicked off the promotion Tuesday at Barnes & Noble in New York City’s Union Square, arriving to the event an hour late after some supporters waited overnight outside the store to see her. She eventually started signing her book -- which claims to “pull back the curtain” on a number of factors that contributed to her loss.

    While previously released passages faulted James Comey and even primary rival Bernie Sanders, the end of the book turns focus to allegedly discriminatory voter laws.

    On page 418, Clinton begins a section titled “Voter Suppression,” where she claims the Trump campaign “actively tried to discourage people from voting at all,” and adds that their play was “just the latest” in a “long-term” Republican strategy to “discourage and disenfranchise” Democratic-leaning voters.

    “The Supreme Court under Chief Justice John Roberts opened the floodgates by gutting the Voting Rights Act in 2013. When I was in the Senate, we voted to reauthorize the law 98 to 0 and President George W. Bush signed it,” Clinton writes. “But Justice Roberts essentially argued that racism was a thing of the past, and therefore the country no longer needed key protections of the Voting Rights Act.”

    Clinton describes Roberts' decision as “one of the worst the court has ever made,” and goes on to list “fourteen states” that had new voter ID restrictions by the 2016 election that she wrote were “aimed at weeding out students, poor people, the elderly, and people of color.” She goes on to blame Kansas Secretary of State Kris Kobach, now-vice chairman of President Trump’s voter fraud commission, for much of the “national effort.”

    As part of her case, Clinton cites a debunked study on Wisconsin.

    “Since the election, studies have documented how big an impact all this suppression had on the outcome. States with harsh new voting laws, such as Wisconsin, saw turnout dip 1.7 points, compared with a 1.3-point increase in states where the law didn’t change,” Clinton writes.

    “In Wisconsin, where I lost by just 22,748 votes, a study from Priorities USA estimated that the new voter ID law helped reduce turnout by 200,000 votes, primarily from low-income and minority areas,” Clinton says. “... Before the election, one Republican state representative in Wisconsin predicted the new law would help Trump pull off an upset in the state. It turns out he was right.”

    But PolitiFact slammed that study as “Mostly False.”

    “Priorities USA, a group that supports Democratic candidates, had issued a report saying a decline in voter turnout between the 2012 and 2016 presidential elections in Wisconsin was entirely due to the state’s photo ID requirement,” PolitiFact wrote Tuesday. “But experts told us that while photo ID requirements may reduce turnout to some extent, they questioned the methodology of the report.”

    PolitiFact also wrote that experts said there was “no way” to put a number on how many people did not vote in Wisconsin because of the ID requirement.

    Clinton also infamously did not visit Wisconsin after the primaries.

    But throughout “What Happened,” Clinton blames multiple factors for her loss—like the attention on “Those Damn Emails,” the “unprecedented intervention in our election” by former FBI Director Comey, and the “audacious information warfare waged from the Kremlin.”

    Clinton even questioned the support of those who attended the massive Women’s March on Jan. 21. On page 14, Clinton explains how “bittersweet” the day after the inauguration was, as thousands of people joined to march on Washington.

    “Yet I couldn’t help but ask where those feelings of solidarity, outrage, and passion had been during the election,” Clinton writes, noting the dozens of women who have approached her in months since, some apologizing for not voting. “We all have to live with the consequences of our decisions.”

    Clinton walked into the formal release on Tuesday with the chairman and founder of Barnes & Noble, Len Riggio. She was joined by longtime aide Huma Abedin and Nick Merrill, her campaign press secretary. The event was a prelude to a bigger book tour being launched across the country and Canada set to last through December.

    According to the director of corporate communications for B&N, Alan McNamara, they sold more than 1,200 copies of “What Happened” at the event by around noon—more than during her 2014 launch of “Hard Choices.”

    White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders was asked at the press briefing Tuesday whether President Trump would read Clinton’s book.

    “I’m not sure,” Sanders said Tuesday. “I would think that he’s pretty well-versed on what happened.”

    Clinton: Lack of respect from Sanders and his supporters 'hurt'

    Hillary Clinton says that Sen. Bernie Sanders's (I-Vt.) reluctance to concede the Democratic presidential nomination to her was hurtful and "disrespectful."

    In an interview on the podcast "Pod Save America," Clinton recalled how Sanders "just kept going" during the Democratic primaries, despite the fact that she had emerged "by March and April" as the clear nominee.

    “I had such a different experience in '08,” she said, referring to her 2008 race against then-candidate Barack Obama. “Once it was over, it was over. And I quickly endorsed President Obama. I worked really hard to get him elected.

    “I didn’t get anything like that respect from Sanders and his supporters," she added. "And it hurt, you know, to have basically captured the nomination, ending up with more than 4 million votes than he had. And he dragged it out.”

    Clinton went on "Pod Save America," a political talk show run by former Obama staffers, to promote her campaign memoir. Clinton's new book, "What Happened," was released on Tuesday.

    Sanders eventually conceded the nomination to Clinton and endorsed her two weeks before the start of the Democratic National Convention.

    Clinton attributed Sanders's decision to continue his campaign against her to the fact that he's not a Democrat.

    "Why would we be surprised? He’s not a Democrat,” she said. “And that’s not a slam on him — that is just a repetition of what he says about himself.”

    Sanders has described himself as a democratic socialist, though he caucuses with the Democrats in the Senate.

    In her book, Clinton argues that Sanders's attacks against her during the primaries caused lasting damage to her campaign and made it harder for her to win over his supporters for the general election.
    obviously I'm not going to read this POS book, but does Hillary really not see anything else in the Democratic race than Bernie should have just dropped out. I guess the DNC helping to get the entitled Hillary in as the nominee gets ignored.

    Clinton: ‘I would have been seen as a genius’ if I won
    Hillary Clinton said Tuesday that she would have been called a "genius" and her campaign "perfect" if she had won the 2016 presidential election.

    In an interview with WNYC, the former secretary of State reflected on being the first female presidential nominee of a major political party. She said that because of the hurdles women face, she would have been hailed as brilliant if she won.

    "I thought it was pretty revolutionary that I was the first woman to have a realistic chance of becoming president,” Clinton said. “So I don’t know how any woman who is not familiar to people, since we have so many hurdles to overcome, could have even been in that position that I found myself.

    “So if I had won, you know, I would have been seen as a genius; my campaign would have been seen as perfect,” she added. “I understand all of that.”


    Clinton, who led Donald Trump in the polls for months ahead of the November election, eventually lost the electoral vote to the Republican nominee, but won the popular vote by nearly 3 million ballots.

    Clinton's comments drew a sarcastic response from former Trump White House press secretary Sean Spicer.

    "And 'if' I won the lottery I'd be rich," Spicer wrote on Twitter.

    Hillary has to be delusional. nobody would have called her a genius if she had won.

    Clinton State Department silenced them on Benghazi security lapses, contractors say
    Security at the State Department's Benghazi compound was so dire that another contractor was brought in to clean up the mess just two weeks before the 2012 terror attack – and was later pressured to keep quiet by a government bureaucrat under then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, according to two men from the American security company.

    Brad Owens and Jerry Torres, of Torres Advanced Enterprise Solutions, say they faced pressure to stay silent and get on the same page with the State Department with regard to the security lapses that led to the deaths of four Americans.

    They spoke exclusively with Fox News for “Tucker Carlson Tonight,” revealing new information that undermines the State Department's account of the 2012 terror attack in Benghazi, where Islamic militants launched a 13-hour assault from Sept. 11-12 that killed U.S. Ambassador Chris Stevens, foreign service officer Sean Smith and former Navy SEALS Ty Woods and Glenn Doherty.

    Torres Advanced Enterprise Solutions provides security for U.S. embassy and consulate personnel around the world in some of the most dangerous locations spanning Africa, the Middle East and South America, according to the firm.

    Jerry Torres remains haunted by the fact specific bureaucrats and policies remain in the State Department after the Benghazi attack despite the change in administrations. "A U.S. ambassador is dead and nobody is held accountable for it. And three guys … all died trying to defend him," said Torres, the company’s CEO and a former Green Beret.

    Asked if there was a specific effort by a senior State Department contracting officer to silence them, Torres said, "Absolutely, absolutely."

    Owens, a former Army intelligence officer, echoed his colleague, saying those “who made the poor choices that actually, I would say, were more responsible for the Benghazi attacks than anyone else, they're still in the same positions, making security choices for our embassies overseas now."

    In 2012, Owens was the American company’s point man in Libya with extensive experience in the region. After the death of Libyan dictator Muammar Qaddafi in the fall of 2011, Owens stressed to Fox News it was well-known that Islamic radicals including Al Qaeda-tied militias were pouring into the region and security “had deteriorated considerably.”

    Based on documents reviewed by Fox News, Torres Advanced Enterprise Solutions bid on the Benghazi compound security contract in the spring of 2012. But the State Department awarded the deal to a U.K.-based operation called The Blue Mountain Group.

    Owens, who had personally visited the Benghazi compound to assess security, was shocked. "Blue Mountain U.K. is a teeny, tiny, little security company registered in Wales that had never had a diplomatic security contract, had never done any high threat contracts anywhere else in the world that we've been able to find, much less in high threat areas for the U.S. government. They had a few guys on the ground," he said.

    According to Torres, the Blue Mountain Group came in 4 percent lower than their bid – and they challenged the decision, claiming the American company should have been preferred over the foreign one.

    Torres said State Department contracting officer Jan Visintainer responded that the State Department had the “latitude to apply” that preference or not.

    And there was more: The Blue Mountain Group hired guards through another company who were not armed.

    Problems soon arose. One month before the attack -- in August 2012, with The Blue Mountain Group still in charge of compound security -- Ambassador Stevens and his team alerted the State Department via diplomatic cable that radical Islamic groups were everywhere and that the temporary mission compound could not withstand a "coordinated attack." The classified cable was first reported by Fox News.

    By Aug. 31, 2012, the situation had deteriorated to the point that Owens and Torres said the State Department asked them to intervene – as Owens put it, an "admission of the mistake of choosing the wrong company."

    "They came back to us and said, ‘Can you guys come in and take over security?’ Owens said. “So we were ready.”

    But Torres emphasized that time was against them, saying it would have taken two-to-three weeks to get set up.

    Twelve days later, the ambassador was killed. Torres learned of the attacks by watching television. He called the circumstances leading up to the tragedy "bad decision-making from top to bottom."

    “There was nothing we could've done about it. If we'd had one month warning … who knows what might've happened,” Owens said.

    In the chaotic days following that attack, the Obama White House blamed the attacks on an anti-Islam video and demonstration which was not accurate. As a former Green Beret, Torres was stunned: "Coming from a military background, I would expect the administration to tell the truth. So I bought into it for a minute. But I didn't believe it in the back of my mind.” He said they later figured out the video was not the culprit. The attack was a coordinated terrorist assault which included a precision mortar strike on the CIA post in Benghazi.

    But as the Obama administration and Clinton’s team struggled to answer questions about the attacks, Visintainer apparently took it one step further -- summoning Jerry Torres from overseas to attend a meeting at her government office in Rosslyn, Va., in early 2013.

    Torres took Fox News back to the Virginia office building where he recalled that day's events.

    "[Visintainer] said that I and people from Torres should not speak to the media, should not speak to any officials with respect to the Benghazi program,” he said.

    Torres said he was afraid for his company – and hasn’t spoken publicly until now.

    "We had about 8,000 employees at the time. You know, we just didn't need that level of damage because these guys, their livelihood relies on the company,” he said. “I trust that our U.S. government is going to follow chain of command, follow procedures, follow protocols and do the right thing."

    Another part of that conversation stuck out to Torres. He said Visintainer told him “in her opinion, that guards should not be armed at U.S. embassies. She just made that blanket statement. … And she said that they weren't required in Benghazi. So I was kind of confused about that. And she said that she would like my support in saying that if that came up. And I looked at her. I just didn't respond."

    The State Department declined Fox News’ request to make Visintainer available for an interview, or have her answer written email questions.

    The Blue Mountain Group did not immediately respond to questions from Fox News.

    Torres and Owens said repercussions against their company continue to this day – and that of the 20 security force contracts they’ve bid on since that conversation, they’ve lost 18.

    Torres and Owens are concerned another attack like the one in Benghazi could happen again because the same State Department employees responsible for the Benghazi contract remain in place and the contracting rules are outdated.

    "In 1990, Congress passed a law that required contracts of this nature to go to the lowest bidder that's technically acceptable," Owens explained. "Now, what that has created is a race to the bottom, is what we call it. So basically, every company tries to cut every corner they can for these contracts."

    The men say they are hopeful that changes will come with the Trump administration’s promise to "drain the swamp."

    "Let's just say there's been a change at management at Department of State," Owens said. "I feel now that, given that the politics has been taken out of the Benghazi situation, now that there's no longer a candidate or anything related to it, a change of administrations, that actually, we have an opportunity here to fix the problems that made it happen."

    On the fifth anniversary, Torres said he thinks about the four families who lost a father, a brother or a son in the 2012 attack, and feels sorry "for not bringing this up earlier. For not actually being there, on the ground and taking care of these guys."

    I don't care where anyone chooses to go in free agency. I really don't. Yes, KD "broke" the NBA for a year or two, but I can't blame him for going to the team that fit what he wanted.

    The worst part about the Warriors winning is that now I can't have an opinion without being a "homer" or a "hater". It used to be that dialogue had merit independent of accusations.

    you're not paying attention to the conversation, for the specific reason why what Hillary did was disrespectful. it has nothing to do with 9/11/2001.

    out of respect to the families of people that died in Benghazi allegedly that had a connection to Hillary Clinton herself, she should show some respect and not release her book at this time.

    Benghazi did not happen on 9/11. There is no correlation here.

    is this what you're going to go with?

    you do know that "9/11" is literally September 11th, and does not provide a year. some use 9/11 as in September 11 2001, but every year has a September 11. Benghazi did happen September 11 2012. Hillary Clinton has now released her book in September (whatever) 2017. Hillary should not be releasing her book in September. she should pick another one of the other months.
    I would hope that people can see that Hillary releasing her book in September is disrespectful/hurtful to those that see her as having blood on her hands for what happened in Benghazi September 11 2012.

    She did not kill anybody. She has no blood on her hands. You are being a liberal snowflake right now.
