Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton's supporters started #HillarySoQualified on Twitter, and it's been trending...for reasons detrimental to the Clinton camp:

#HillarySoQualified that when it actually came time to make tough choices four Americans died and she blamed it on republicans— The Pretty Patriot (@PatriotPretty) April 7, 2016
The truth is, Clinton is far from qualified to be president. Here are seven reasons why she's not.
1. Clinton broke the law with her personal server. As The Daily Wire has reported, it's crystal-clear that Clinton violated the Espionage Act for having an unsecure, personal server that had over 1,340 classified emails on it. Clinton and her team actually removed the classified label on some of these emails to move them over to her private server. Not only is this an open-and-shut felony, she exposed highly-sensitive national security information to the country's enemies, and it was all so she could put her position as Secretary of State up for sale through the Clinton Foundation.
2. Her tenure as Secretary of State was abysmal. Here is a list of Clinton's numerous foreign policy bungles as Secretary of State:
- Trying to reset relations with Russia in 2009 through an actual reset button...that didn't even say "reset" in Russian. Today, Russia and the U.S. are in another Cold War.
- Clinton was the chief architect of taking out Libyan dictator Moammar Gaddafi in 2011, as she infamously cackled, "We came. We saw. He died." Gaddafi, who at the time was an ally that provided the country with intelligence on radical Islamic terror groups, warned that if he was deposed that the country would be overrun by the Islamists. Gaddafi was proven right, as today Libya is a cesspool of Islamic terrorism and their government is incapable of addressing the problem.
- Clinton championed withdrawing from Iraq in 2011 without a status of forces agreement, which resulted in the rise of ISIS.
- Clinton also was a proponent of the Arab Spring democracy wave, which turned into an Islamist nightmare.
- The seedlings of the Iran deal began with Clinton, which essentially is handing nukes to Iran on a silver platter.
- Clinton is also virulently anti-Israel.
The world became much worse during Clinton's tenure as Secretary of State.
3. She let four Americans die at Benghazi and blamed it on a video. After deposing Gaddafi, Clinton didn't particularly care about Libya, which led to the murder of Ambassador Chris Stevens and three other patriotic Americans. As Daily Wire editor-in-chief Ben Shapiro has written, Clinton lied to the American public that an anti-Islam video was to blame, despite the fact that her emails show that she knew it was a terrorist attack. She even lied to the mother of one of the Benghazi victims, and then lied that she lied about it. Additionally, Clinton blamed Stevens for his own death, saying he was "comfortable" on the ground, even though his repeated requests for more security never got answered. Clinton was also AWOL the night of the Benghazi attack, as nobody knows exactly what she was doing. Help could have been sent, but it never was, and four Americans died. Clinton's reaction to the whole incident was: "What difference, at this point, does it make?"
4. Clinton enabled her peverted husband to sexually abuse women. The Daily Wire has found that there are at least 14 accusations of former President Bill Clinton sexually abusing women. His wife enabled him every step of the way. Take the account of Juanita Broaddrick, who has accused Clinton of raping her:
“I remember it as though it was yesterday. I only wish that it were yesterday and maybe there would still be time to do something about what your husband, Bill Clinton, did to me. There was a political rally for Mr. Clinton's bid for governor of Arkansas. I had obligated myself to be at this rally prior to my being assaulted by your husband in April, 1978. I had made up my mind to make an appearance and then leave as soon as the two of you arrived. This was a big mistake, but I was still in a state of shock and denial. You had questioned the gentleman who drove you and Mr. Clinton from the airport. You asked him about me and if I would be at the gathering.
Do you remember? You told the driver, "Bill has talked so much about Juanita", and that you were so anxious to meet me. Well, you wasted no time. As soon as you entered the room, you came directly to me and grabbed my hand. Do you remember how you thanked me, saying "we want to thank you for everything that you do for Bill". At that point, I was pretty shaken and started to walk off. Remember how you kept a tight grip on my hand and drew closer to me? You repeated your statement, but this time with a coldness and look that I have seen many times on television in the last eight years. You said, "Everything you do for Bill". You then released your grip and I said nothing and left the gathering.
What did you mean, Hillary? Were you referring to my keeping quiet about the assault I had suffered at the hands of your husband only two weeks before? Were you warning me to continue to keep quiet? We both know the answer to that question.”
Clinton also led the campaign to smear all the women accusing her philandering husband of being a pervert as "bimbo eruptions."
5. She attempted to deny counsel to then-President Richard Nixon as a part of the Watergate committee. Jerry Zeifman, a Democrat, supervised Clinton during her tenure on the Watergate committee and said he fired her because "she was a liar" and "an ethical, dishonest lawyer." Hot Air's Ed Morrissey highlights a portion from Zeifman's website where he explains how Clinton attempted to change the rules for impeachment procedures behind his back:
Hillary assured me that she had not drafted, and would not advocate, any such rules changes. However, as documented in my personal diary, I soon learned that she had lied. She had already drafted changes, and continued to advocate them. In one written legal memorandum, she advocated denying President Nixon representation by counsel. In so doing she simply ignored the fact that in the committee’s then most recent prior impeachment proceeding, the committee had afforded the right to counsel to Supreme Court Justice William O. Douglas.
I had also informed Hillary that the Douglas impeachment files were available for public inspection in the committee offices. She later removed the Douglas files without my permission and carried them to the offices of the impeachment inquiry staff — where they were no longer accessible to the public.
Hillary had also made other ethical flawed procedural recommendations, arguing that the Judiciary Committee should: not hold any hearings with – or take depositions of — any live witnesses; not conduct any original investigation of Watergate, bribery, tax evasion, or any other possible impeachable offense of President Nixon; and should rely solely on documentary evidence compiled by other committees and by the Justice Departments special Watergate prosecutor.
Whether or not Zeifman actually fired her isn't entirely clear, but his claim about Clinton attempting to deny counsel–a staple of the constitutional republic–to Nixon has been confirmed by Franklin Polk, Republican counsel to the committee.
As columnist Dan Calabrese writes, "Disingenuously arguing a position? Vanishing documents? Selling out members of her own party to advance a personal agenda? Classic Hillary."
6. Clinton worked on behalf of a crony financial organization as a member of the Rose Law Firm, and stonewalled attempts to investigate her. Here are the details of this scandal, known as the Whitewater case, as explained by Breitbart's Micah Morrison:
With Governor Bill Clinton running Arkansas, Mrs. Clinton leveraged her work at the Rose Law Firm into a series of transactions on behalf of a corrupt financial institution, Madison Guaranty Savings & Loan, run by a longtime Clinton crony, James McDougal. Among the transactions was a document drafted by Mrs. Clinton to conceal a series of fraudulent loans that were used to deceive federal bank examiners.
The fraudulent loans were part of a land deal known as Castle Grande. Mrs. Clinton, along with her Rose Law Firm partner Webster Hubbell—later given a high-ranking post at the Justice Department by President Clinton—handled the Madison Guaranty accounts for law firm. Hubbell’s father-in-law, Seth Ward, also played a key role in the Madison accounts.
In the mid-1980s, federal bank regulators started taking a close look at Madison Guaranty and concluded that Castle Grande was a sham, a crime, and part of a pyramid scheme to enrich insiders and hide the S&L’s disintegrating finances. According to the newly obtained document, “Hillary Clinton and Hubbell concealed their involvement in Castle Grande.”
As Shapiro has written, the Whitewater documents requested by the FBI were "found in the personal Clinton quarters of the White House" with Clinton's fingerprints on them. She claims she had zero idea as to how they got there.
The Clintons were never indicted–largely because the evidence was circumstantial–and prosecutors felt they could get Clinton on the Monica Lewinsky scandal. However, indictments were reportedly drafted. Regardless of the Clintons' involvement in the Whitewater scandal, the fact that they worked closely with a shady organization and that Clinton stonewalled documents raises serious questions about her qualifications to be commander-in-chief.
7. Clinton is every bit the Saul Alinsky radical that Obama is. Alinsky, the Marxist community organizer, has had a deep influence on Clinton's political views, as demonstrated by these letters between her and Alinsky:
However, in the 1971 letter, Clinton assured Alinsky that she had “survived law school, slightly bruised, with my belief in and zest for organizing intact.”
“The more I’ve seen of places like Yale Law School and the people who haunt them, the more convinced I am that we have the serious business and joy of much work ahead—if the commitment to a free and open society is ever going to mean more than eloquence and frustration,” wrote Clinton.
According to the letter, Clinton and Alinsky had kept in touch since she entered Yale. The 62-year-old radical had reached out to give her advice on campus activism.
“If I never thanked you for the encouraging words of last spring in the midst of the Yale-Cambodia madness, I do so now,” wrote Clinton, who had moderated a campus election to join an anti-war student strike.
She added that she missed their regular conversations, and asked if Alinsky would be able to meet her the next time he was in California.
Clinton also wrote her college thesis about Alinsky, where she was "sympathetic" to him but disagreed with some of his tactics. But it's clear that she believes in Alinsky's philosophy, and comes from the same school of thought as President Barack Obama.
Clinton would be a third-term of Barack Obama.
