Yes, globalist Bill Clinton certainly is on the ballot and looking for a total of 16 years in the White House. Hillary already said she'd put him in charge of fixing the economy, that he has a lot to offer so it would be foolish not to use him in some capacity. Bill Clinton left the nation vulnerable to nuclear annihilation by losing his nuclear ID card for several months to two years and never admitting it to the public. Such a person shouldn't be allowed to set foot in the White House again

Bill Clinton enacted "one of the largest tax increases in American history" including an energy tax. "Almost everyone would feel the effect." May 14, 1993, NY Times: "THE CLINTON TAX BILL; CLINTON PROPOSAL FOR TAX INCREASES PASSES FIRST TEST," David E. Rosenbaum. "The legislation would raise taxes for individuals and businesses by a total of nearly $250 billion over the next five years, one of the largest tax increases in American history....Lobbyists lined the walls often two and three deep."...

If you take historic amounts of money from Americans in taxes-the minute you set foot in the White House- that makes you good on the economy:

May 11, 2016, "Hillary Clinton says she'll put Bill 'in charge' of fixing economy," CNN Money, Chris Isidore

"If she's elected president, Hillary Clinton says she'll appoint her husband, Bill, to oversee the economy.

During a speech in Kentucky Sunday she referred to "my husband, who I will put in charge of revitalizing the economy 'cause he knows what he's doing."...

Giving Clinton's policies full credit for boosting the economy isn't entirely fair. The rapid growth of the Internet during his eight years in office greatly increased business productivity and profits and helped to fuel the hiring boom. There was also a bubble in Internet stocks, which poured money into the tech sector and helped spurred hiring.... 

But there are critics on both the right and the left who argue that Clinton's policies laid the groundwork for the economic problems that were to follow. 

Many regulations were eliminated during Clinton's administration that had previously prevented commercial banks from moving into investment banking and insurance, which had been the turf of Wall Street firms. Some critics have blamed the loss of those protections for the financial market's meltdown and the need to bail out banks that occurred in 2008. 
 
The North American Free Trade Agreement, which lowered trade barriers with Mexico and Canada, was signed into law early in the Clinton administration. China and the U.S. also signed a trade accord in 1999 which led to China joining the World Trade Organization. Those moves led to dramatic increases in imports from Mexico and China, which critics say cost U.S. workers their jobs.... 

"It would be getting ahead of ourselves to talk about any sort of formalized role for anyone in her administration," he (Nick Merrill, campaign pres secretary) said. "I think that her point has been time and again that he has a lot to offer and it would be foolish not to use that in some capacity. It has not gone any further than that." 

Earlier this month in another speech in Kentucky she said, "I told my husband he's got to come out of retirement and be in charge of this because you know he's got more ideas a minute that anybody I know.""

May 14, 1993, NY Times: "THE CLINTON TAX BILL; CLINTON PROPOSAL FOR TAX INCREASES PASSES FIRST TEST," David E. Rosenbaum. 

"President Clinton's plan to raise the taxes of almost all Americans in order to lower the Federal budget deficit passed its first big test in Congress today.

The House Ways and Means Committee, the first committee to get a crack at the tax measures, made some changes around the edges of the President's proposals but approved the main elements intact. The vote was 24 to 14, with all the Democrats in favor and all the Republicans opposed.

The legislation would raise taxes for individuals and businesses by a total of nearly $250 billion over the next five years, one of the largest tax increases in American history. 

The bill is almost certain to be passed the week after next by the full House of Representatives. But the outlook for the President's program in the Senate, where the Democratic majority is less solid than it is in the House, is much chancier.... 

At the White House, George Stephanopoulos, Mr. Clinton's communications director, said, "The President is delighted that the Ways and Means Committee and all the other relevant committees were able to pass so much of his deficit reduction package in such a short period of time with so few changes."

Representative Dan Rostenkowski, the Illinois Democrat who heads the Ways and Means panel and a strong Clinton ally, called today's vote "the first step in deficit reduction." He added: "We've got a President in the White House that's leading, and we've got a Congress that's following."

His committee took the President's bill as a starting point and made only two substantial changes, both affecting businesses: it rejected his proposal for an investment tax credit for businesses, and it voted to raise the tax rate on corporate profits, now 34 percent, to 35 percent instead of 36 percent as the President requested.

The bulk of the higher taxes in the bill, as the President proposed, would fall on wealthy individuals. No one with with an income below $100,000 would get a higher income tax rate. But almost everyone would feel the effect. 

For example, a new tax on fuel would cost a typical family, according to the Treasury Department's calculations, about $200 a year in larger utility bills and higher prices for gasoline and other products and services. The cost could be higher for families who drive long distances or live on farms. 

The cost of the energy tax would be offset at least in part for workers earning less than about $30,000 by an expanded earned-income tax credit, which is a tax break for workers with lower incomes....

The small changes in the Clinton program were made this week by the panel's Democratic members, meeting around a conference table in a closed room with the Republicans excluded.

When the full committee met in the open today, every seat in the largest hearing room on the House side of the Capitol was filled, and lobbyists lined the walls often two and three deep. After a staff explanation of the changes in the President's proposals, the committee voted to remove the lobbyists and reporters and met privately.

Then, Republicans offered seven amendments, including one that would have dropped the fuel tax. All were defeated on straight party-line votes in a process lasted less than an hour."...

4 articles about Bill Clinton losing his nuclear code ID card, two in 2016 and two in 2010:

Aug. 4, 2016, "EXCLUSIVE: Hillary fears Trump 'having his finger on the nuclear button' but 1. There is no button (it's a 'football') and 2. It was Bill Clinton who risked nuclear annihilation when he lost the authentication codes," Daily Mail, Ronald Kessler

Oct. 22, 2010, "Why Clinton's Losing the Nuclear Biscuit Was Really, Really Bad," The Atlantic, Marc Ambinder   

10/21/2010, "Bill Clinton 'lost vital White House nuclear codes'," UK Telegraph 

August 16, 2016, "Bill Clinton Once LOST Nuclear Launch Codes, DC Insider Claims," RadarOnline, staff  

................

FACT CHECK: No need to imagine a US president putting us at risk of nuclear holocaust--Hillary's husband Bill, has already done it. As described in articles above, posted below, Bill Clinton lost his nuclear ID card and it remained lost for at least a few months and possibly 2 years. Insiders kept this secret from the public until well after the Clintons were out of office and making millions to try and get themselves back in the White House for another 8 years.

No "button" exists to order nuclear attacks. Nor do "nuclear codes." It begins with a Presidential ID card and a large briefcase containing phone equipment with which to call the Pentagon. It was Bill Clinton who risked nuclear annihilation when he lost his ID card containing authentication codes required to communicate with the Pentagon. "The president may authorize launches by talking with the Pentagon and using codes to verify his identity after the case has been opened." In 2010, when asked about losing his personal identification code, Bill Clinton's office had no comment: "Former President Clinton's office declined to comment today on reports that he managed to lose the personal identification code needed to confirm nuclear launches and never told anyone about it." If a president called the Pentagon and begged them to commence a nuclear attack, they wouldn't be able to do so unless the president had his ID card.


Nuclear briefcase
Aug. 4, 2016, "EXCLUSIVE: Hillary fears Trump 'having his finger on the nuclear button' but 1. There is no button (it's a 'football') and 2. It was Bill Clinton who risked nuclear annihilation when he lost the authentication codes," Daily Mail, Ronald Kessler

"Ronald Kessler, a former Washington Post and Wall Street Journal investigative reporter, is the New York Times bestselling author of The First Family Detail: Secret Service Agents Reveal the Hidden Lives of the Presidents and In the President’s Secret Service: Behind the Scenes With Agents in the Line of Fire" 




  • "Those who don't want Donald Trump's finger on the nuclear button may be in for a surprise: The nuclear button does not exist. Trump 'shouldn't have his finger on the button', Hillary Clinton said about the Republican presidential candidate in Columbus, Ohio, in June. 

  • But not only is there no button to allow the president to unleash nuclear weapons, contrary to popular myth, there are no codes used by the president to accomplish such a strike.

    Instead, the president is supplied with what is known as the nuclear football. A leather-covered titanium business case that weighs 40 pounds, the nuclear football is secured with a cipher lock. 

    The case contains a variety of secure phone capabilities and options for launching nuclear strikes that the president may authorize by talking with the Pentagon. 

    Ironically, in view of Hillary Clinton's claim that Trump should not have his finger on the nuclear button, it was her husband Bill Clinton who risked nuclear annihilation of America by losing the authentication codes.

    At one point during his second term, Secret Service agents tell me, President Clinton managed to lose the plastic authenticator card with the codes he would need to verify his identity to launch nuclear weapons.

    In his book Without Hesitation: The Odyssey of an American Warrior, retired general Hugh Shelton, the former chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, confirmed that in Clinton's last year in office, his required codes for launching a nuclear strike were missing for months. 

    'This is a big deal - a gargantuan deal - and we dodged a silver bullet,' Shelton said. 

    'If our survival depended on launching a preemptive strike, without the president's having [the football and authentication codes], such a strike would be impossible.' Shelton said. 

    The president authenticates his identity with codes found on a small plastic card he carries with him. In case the president is incapacitated or has died, an identical nuclear football is assigned to the vice president.

    Since President Obama or Vice President Joe Biden would likely have 15 minutes or less to respond to an impending attack from a country like China, Russia or North Korea before the United States could be wiped out by nuclear-tipped missiles, the military aide who carries the satchel is supposed to accompany the two leaders wherever they go.

    When they board Air Force One or Air Force Two, the military aide carrying the football can be seen right behind them. Staying over at hotels, the military aide sleeps in a room adjoining the president's or vice president's room.

    When Secret Service agents script an arrival or departure from a hotel or office building, they make sure the military aide rides the elevator with the protectee. In motorcades, the military aide travels in the vehicle right behind the president's or vice president's limo. 

    In the event the president or vice president comes under attack during a public appearance, Secret Service agents have standing instructions to evacuate the military aide together with the protectee. 

    'Whoever has the duty as military aide to the president is responsible for physical custody of the football and ensuring its access to the president 24/7, within a matter of seconds,' says retired Navy vice admiral John Stufflebeem, who was the military aide to President George HW Bush....

    Stufflebeem revealed how the nuclear football works for my book The First Family Detail: Secret Service Agents Reveal the Hidden Lives of the Presidents. 

    After President Harry Truman ordered the release of the first atomic bomb, President Dwight Eisenhower, as a former general, recognized the need to provide the president with a mechanism for ordering an immediate nuclear retaliatory strike from any location.

    Under what is called the National Security System, five military aides rotate the duty of carrying the nuclear football for the president. The Air Force, Navy, Marines, Army, and Coast Guard each assign an aide. Another five military aides take turns traveling with the vice president. 

    When the president is in the Oval Office, the military aide with the nuclear football remains just outside, ready to rush in if the National Security System signals an alert through phones contained in the football. 

    The encrypted voice communications may be transmitted by satellite, microwave relay transmission, cell phone, landline, or shortwave radio.

    At night, the military aide sleeps in workout clothes in an underground bunker at the White House. If an alert comes, he can rush to provide the president with the football in his bedroom at the residence.

    The vice president has the same arrangement at his offices in the West Wing and in the Eisenhower Executive Office Building, and at the vice president's residence on the grounds of the US Naval Observatory in northwest Washington. 

    Only the president - or if he has died or is incapacitated, the vice president as his constitutional successor - can order the release of nuclear weapons.

    The National Military Command Center provides both leaders with an authenticator card with codes that verify the president's or vice president's identity.

    Because what is called the Sealed Authentication System is so highly classified, all of the information that has appeared in the press about it has been wrong. 

    A recent Washington Post article pointed out that the nuclear football contains no button for unleashing a nuclear counterstrike but never explained how the football actually works."

    2010, The Atlantic: "Former President Clinton's office declined to comment today on reports that he managed to lose the personal identification code needed to confirm nuclear launches and never told anyone about it."

    .......  
    "Former President Clinton's office declined to comment today on reports that he managed to lose the personal identification code needed to confirm nuclear launches and never told anyone about it. Gen. Hugh Shelton, chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff during the last few years of Clinton's term, writes about the episode in his new autobiography. Shelton is especially sensitive to the proper authentication procedures, having served as deputy commander of the National Military Command Center (NMCC), through which all nuclear launch progression action chains are processed. The National Command Authority (NCA), as the process and the person of the commander in chief is called, passes from the President to the Vice President to the Secretary of Defense. (In the absence of the SecDef, the Deputy Secretary of Defense can stand in.) 
    ........ 
    In effect, without Clinton's "biscuit," as the personal identifier is called, the President would not have been able to initiate a launch order or confirm a launch order executed by someone else. The football itself, which contains code authenticators, a transceiver, targeting menus, and continuity of government options, was always with the military aide.

    A former military officer with knowledge of NCA procedures helps fill in some of the details.

    Let's say that the North American Aerospace Defense Command (NORAD) detects an inbound air warning; the NMCC immediately calls the Sit Room or the military aide, which plugs in the President, who then provides an alpha-numeric code to verify his identity. Once verified, the President can (to invoke ICBM language) execute or terminate sorties. The military aide--known as the Milaide--goes everywhere with the President. Even when the President travels in a hotel elevator, the Milaide (and the president's doctor) accompany him. (Yes, every POTUS elevator trip is monitored.)

    So what happens if the President doesn't have his identifier?

    The commander in chief of NORAD resorts to the next person the NCA list, the Vice President.

    This is a survival mechanism built in during the Cold War, in the event that Washington was decapitated without warning in a nuclear strike. NORAD continues down the list until it finds a capital P-Principle, who provides that identifier and assumes the duties of the Commander in Chief.

    Sounds like no big deal, right?

    Here's the reality: Losing that identifier card had the potential to create a vast disruption in nuclear command and control procedures.

    So Al Gore gets "the call" because Clinton can't properly ID himself. Gore is confused, lives in Washington, knows the President is fine. He tells NORAD to hold while he tracks down the President, who can't verify his own identify anyway. Precious minutes (and I do mean precious, seconds count in the nuke business) are lost while civilian and military leadership sort things out.

    And that says nothing of the fact that the President would be in gross violation of his duties by allowing the VP to execute an order that is lawfully the President's to make. Once a strike is authorized by the NCA, the Chairman and Vice Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff pass the order to the U.S. Strategic Command through the NMCC, or through an alternate command site, like Site R in Liberty Township, PA, or through an airborne platform known as TACAMO, which stands for "Take Charge and Move Out."

    TACAMO's fleet, operated by the Navy, consists of tricked-out Boeing E6-B aircraft pre-positioned at six locations across the country. They're on constant stand-by, ready to fly within 10 minutes of an alert. During the Cold War, the code name for these missions was "Looking Glass," and at least one airplane was in the air at all times. TACAMO planes are in 24/7 contact with America's fixed ballistic missile silos, its nuclear subs, and its nuclear-weapon-equipped airplanes.

    Don't confuse these aircraft with the NAOC, or "Kneecap," four Air Force planes designed to physically transport the NCA -- POTUS or whomever -- to safety in an emergency. Wherever the President travels, a Boeing E4 is not far behind. The planes also ferry other members of the NCA, including SecDef, to international locations where they know they can secure their communications if they need them.

    If there's a catastrophic attack on the seat of the United States government, the planes, their crews, and special mission units are responsible for ensuring that the surviving constitutional officer "becomes" the NCA until the emergency is over. The NAOC planes keep in constant contact with the NMCC, the White House's Presidential Emergency Operations Center, the HMX-1 squadron that the President uses for helicopter traffic, and various classified alternate command and control centers worldwide. (Yes, worldwide.)

    On 9/11, according to Shelton, a NAOC plane was in the air, Deputy Secretary of Defense Paul Wolfowitz was evacuated to Site R, and various other continuity of government measures were put into effect in case they were needed. That day, they were not.

    But the emergency would convince the Bush administration to significantly retool and expand the secret programs designed to ensure constitutional government."

    August 2016: "Though Hillary Clinton said Donald Trump “is not a man we can trust with nuclear weapons," she might want to take a closer look at her husband, who is being accused of once leaving the U.S. open to attack after losing the nuclear codes."

    August 16, 2016, "Bill Clinton Once LOST Nuclear Launch Codes, DC Insider Claims," RadarOnline, staff

    "Find out how the former President almost destroyed the U.S." 

    "Bill Clinton almost destroyed the United States by losing the launch codes! At least that’s what one retired U.S. general says. 

    Though Hillary Clinton said Donald Trump “is not a man we can trust with nuclear weapons,” she might want to take a closer look at her husband, who is being accused of once leaving the U.S. open to attack after losing the nuclear codes.

    Journalist Ronald Kessler reported, an actual nuclear button does not exist. Instead there is a “nuclear football,” a “leather-covered titanium business case that weighs 40 pounds,” he wrote. The football is secured with a cipher lock. Bill Clinton had access to this “nuclear football” while serving as president and in his second term in the White House, as retired U.S. general Hugh Shelton claimed, Bill’s required codes went missing…for months!

    Shelton emphasized in his book, Without Hesitation: The Odyssey of an American Warrior, this was “a big deal” and that the United Stated dodged a “silver bullet” when nothing went wrong.

    “If our survival depended on launching a preemptive strike, without the president’s having [the football and authentication codes], such a strike would be impossible,” Shelton said. 

    Vanity Fair reported that retired Air Force lieutenant colonel Robert Patterson also recalled Bill losing the codes. We called upstairs, we started a search around the White House for the codes, and [Bill] finally confessed that he in fact misplaced them. He couldn’t recall when he had last seen them, Patterson said.

    Clinton specifically lost the personal identification code needed to confirm nuclear launches, also known as the “biscuit.” Without the “biscuit” the president cannot initiate a launch order or confirm one from someone else. As The Atlantic reported, “losing that identifier card had the potential to create a vast disruption in nuclear command and control procedures.” 

    Shelton insisted that losing these codes is just as severe as it sounds. “Without the football and the appropriate codes, it doesn’t matter if we’ve got a thousand missiles verified inbound to the United States, we would be unable to launch a retaliatory strike,he wrote."

    Oct. 2010: "The codes were actually missing for months. That's a big deal--a gargantuan deal." -

    10/21/2010, "Bill Clinton 'lost vital White House nuclear codes'," UK Telegraph 

    "For several months during Bill Clinton's administration, a former top military officer says the White House lost the card with a set of numbers for opening the briefcase containing the codes for a nuclear attack."

     "Gen Hugh Shelton, who was Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff at the time, said in his new memoir, "Without Hesitation: The Odyssey of an American Warrior" that "the codes were actually missing for months. That's a big deal--a gargantuan deal."

    A similar claim was made by Lt Col Robert Patterson, a former aide, in a book published seven years ago (2003). He was one of the men who carried the briefcase, known as the "football", and he said that the morning after the Monica Lewinsky scandal broke that he made a routine request of the president to present the card so that he could provide an updated version. 

    "He thought he just placed them upstairs," Lt Col Patterson recalled. "We called upstairs, we started a search around the White House for the codes, and he finally confessed that he in fact misplaced them. He couldn't recall when he had last seen them.

    He said the President lost the card holding the codes, which is known as the biscuit, in 1998, but according to Gen Shelton, the card went missing in 2000."....

    ........
    Added: WE DON'T HAVE TO "DARE IMAGINE," Mrs. Clinton, we already know--no thanks to you. Your husband is dangerously incompetent and dishonest and should never be allowed in the White House again. Purely by luck, we're still alive and able to know that Bill lost his nuclear ID card, that it remained lost for an extended period of time, and that he never publicly admitted his actions: 

    July 2016, Hillary Clinton speaking at the Democrat convention says how scary it would be if Trump was "entrusted" with nuclear weapons. No mention how scary it was that we "entrusted" nuclear power to her husband Bill and were betrayed. Instead of admitting Bill's gross incompetence and dishonesty to the American people and retiring from the public stage, he and Mrs. Clinton have gone on to make millions and to push for a total of 16 years in the White House:

    Hillary, July 2016: "Imagine, if you dare" Trump in the Oval Office facing a crisis and entrusted with nuclear weapons:

    July 28, 2016, "Clinton on Trump: "A man you can bait with a tweet" can't be trusted "with nuclear weapons" Vox.com, Updated by Andrew Prokop






    7/30/16, "Hillary's Recycled Speech," Cal Thomas, Townhall 

    "Putting aside the theatrics designed to make Hillary Clinton appear to be something she is not...we've heard it all before.
    .......
    First there was the charge that Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump cannot be trusted with the nuclear codes. The same was said about Ronald Reagan in 1980. Democrats called him a "cowboy" who might blow up the world. Instead, he rebuilt America's military, as Trump has promised to do, and helped bring down the Soviet Union.
    .......  
    Can Hillary be trusted with classified documents?"...
