    During his 1992 campaign for the presidency, Bill Clinton was
    fond of promising America, “You get two for the price of one,”
    indicating Hillary Clinton would act as his co-president.

    But the nation got much more than it bargained for, as the top
    power couple brought a load of baggage with them into the White
    House from their days in Arkansas.

    After the Clintons moved into the presidential mansion, the
    political scandals multiplied – from use of the IRS and FBI to
    target political opponents to stalking and harassing subjects of
    Bill Clinton’s sexual advances and even attempts to loot
    taxpayer-funded items from the White House. Americans also
    witnessed capers such as Travelgate, Chinagate, Filegate and

    Bill Clinton’s sexual escapades and subsequent impeachment by
    the U.S. House of Representatives on charges of perjury and
    obstruction of justice consumed more than a year of American
    public life and bitterly divided the nation.

    In the years since the memorable Clinton presidency, Hillary has
    brought America Emailgate and the Benghazi scandal, among
    others. New developments in the Clinton Foundation scandals
    emerges almost daily.

    Now, it’s Hillary’s “turn” to be president, according to her
    Democrat supporters.

    But in 2015, America is still apparently suffering from “Clinton
    fatigue.” Results from a Quinnipiac poll published in April
    revealed between 49 and 56 percent of voters in three
    significant swing states – Colorado, Virginia and Iowa – believe
    Hillary is neither honest nor trustworthy.

    Even former California Democratic Party Chairman Bill Press told
    WND that controversies surrounding Hillary should convince
    members of his own party an uncontested coronation of Clinton as
    the party’s 2016 nominee for the White House is a very risky
    idea and should encourage other Democrats to throw their hats in
    the ring.

    Sen. Marco Rubio, a Republican candidate for president, said
    Sunday he believes voters will reject Hillary because of the
    “cloud of constant scandal she brings to the political process.”

    Rubio told Fox News Sunday, “Unfortunately, both under her
    husband’s presidency, her time in the Department of State, her
    campaign for the president last time and even now, there seems
    to be this cloud of constant scandal and things that distract us
    from the core issues of the moment.”

    Hillary’s “drama” could become a distraction, Rubio warned, at a
    time when the stakes are high for America in the 2016 election.

    “I just think that at this hinge moment in our history, where we
    are asked to make a transition from the past into this new
    future, with all the challenges and the opportunities of our
    time that we really – the American people are not at a point now
    where they are going to be supportive of more drama surrounding
    the political process,” he said.

    In 2003, ABC News’ Barbara Walters referenced numerous Clinton
    scandals from Whitewater to Travelgate and the death of Hillary
    law partner Vince Foster in an interview with then-Sen. Clinton.

    Walters asked Hillary, “How did you get in this mess where your
    whole credibility is being questioned?”

    Hillary’s response: “Oh, I ask myself that every day, Barbara,
    because it’s very surprising and confusing to me.”

    With Hillary making another run for president, don’t get caught
    up in the lies and spin! In “Hillary Unhinged: In Her Own
    Words,” find out who the true Hillary is with this raw and
    humorous collection of quotes that pitilessly underscores her

    With the prospect of another “two-for-one” Clinton presidency
    looming, is America ready for a repeat of the Bill and Hillary
    “drama” in the White House?

    If, as psychologists say, “The best predictor of future behavior
    is past behavior,” then a fresh look at the top 20 scandals
    involving Hillary is in order.

    8) Chinagate: Sale of high-tech secrets

    Chinagate, documented by Judicial Watch, was uncovered by
    Judicial Watch founder Larry Klayman. Technology companies
    allegedly made donations of millions of dollars to various
    Democratic Party entities, including President Bill Clinton’s
    1996 re-election campaign, in return for permission to sell high-
    tech secrets to China.

    Bernard Schwartz and his Loral Space & Communication Ltd. later
    allegedly “helped China to identify the cause of [a rocket
    failure], thereby advancing China’s missile program and
    threatening U.S. national security,” according to records.

    In a 2013 column titled “Proof Hillary isn’t fit to be
    president,” Klayman wrote:

    Not to be outdone by her prior scandals, Hillary … masterminded
    a scheme whereby the Clinton-Gore presidential campaign of 1996
    took bribes from communist Chinese banks and their government to
    bankroll the president’s and the Democratic Party’s re-election
    efforts when it appeared, due to their low standing in the
    polls, that all the stops needed to be pulled out. It was the
    lawsuit that I brought against Secretary of Commerce Ron Brown,
    where at Hillary’s instruction, he literally sold seats on
    Department trade missions to China and elsewhere, which
    principally uncovered this. In late 1996 and early 1997, the
    scandal had burgeoned to such a level that joint congressional
    hearings were empaneled, ultimately to be shut down when
    Democrats uncovered illegal fundraising by some Republicans. The
    two parties, faced with mutual assured destruction, simply took
    an exit stage left.

    However, I soldiered on with my lawsuit. And, while I uncovered
    a lot about Bonnie and Clyde and their Chinese ‘friends,’ this
    scandal ultimately took back seat to the Monica Lewinsky
    scandal, since the media preferred sex to foreign espionage and

    Hillary and Bill were ironically saved by Monica, who became the
    lightening rod drawing attention away to what at the time was
    perhaps the biggest scandal – Chinagate – in American history.

    Sounds like Obama and the United States Navy...
