Hillary Rodham Clinton Finally Admits she was not named after Sir Edmund Hillary of Mt Everest Fame … Really?


Really? Hillary Rodham Clinton was not named after the man who conquered Mount Everest Sir_Edmund_Hillaryas she has claimed for so many years. Say it isn ’t so. Not like any of us in the blogosphere didn’t know about that lie early on. Everyone knows that on May 29, 1953, Edmund Hillary of New Zealand and Tenzing Norgay of Nepal became the first human beings to conquer Mount Everest.

For more than a decade, Sen. Clinton’s informal biography repeated the story, and it was recounted in former President Bill Clinton’s 2004 autobiography, “My Life.”

The problem with the tale, however, is one of timing. Sir Edmund and his Sherpa guide, Tenzing Norgay, became known to the world only in 1953, after becoming the first men to reach Everest’s summit. Sen. Clinton was born in 1947. (World Net Daily)

So how exactly does Hillary Diane Rodham born on October 26, 1947 get named after a man who the world came to know some 6 years later? Now its one thing to humor your Hillary Clinton liesmother with this cute and inspiring fable; however, why would Hillary Clinton continue to tell the same story over and over knowing that it was impossible to have occurred? Don’t they tell us that Hillary Rodham Clinton is the smartest woman in America? So Hillary cannot tell the truth as to the origin of her name, something as simple as that. What else is a fabrication? Next thing you know Hillary is going to tell us that her family was named after Dennis Rodman. Oh that’s an “m” and an “n” not an “h” and an “m” … nevermind.

Years after alternative media pointed out the virtual impossibility, Sen. Hillary Clinton finally has admitted she was not named for the famous conqueror of Mount Everest, Sir Edmund Hillary.

The New York Times, which repeated the claim as fact in a story just one week ago, reported Sen. Clinton’s campaign issued a correction yesterday.

      You call that a lie ?
      Claiming WMD in Iraq, that was what I call a lie and 100s of thousand people are no longer alive because of it.


      SM: You just don’t get it do you? Do not play Monday morning QB. Everyone at the time including Clinton, Dems, foreign country intelligence stated that Saddam had WMD.

      Stick to the point, of which it appears because of over-the-top partisanship you cannot. How does someone lie about something so silly and continue to propagate the foolish lie that can be so easily disproved? Thats the point. Then have the MSM continue the lie and even put it in Bill Clinton’s memoirs.

      Simply foolish. And I am sorry if the truth hurts, but I would say this about anyone (party does not matter) if one cannot tell the truth about the most simple things in life, what does that tell you of what will be done with the more complex issues. But these are the people who brought us the definitions of “is”.

      I cannot believe anyone would vote for this creature. She and her husband are two peas in a pod.

      yeah Brad, and Bill Clinton “did not have sex the that woman”…

      Brad, birds of a feather flock together and I see which flock you wish to fly with…the buzzards.

      Quotes: Probably my worst quality is that I get very passionate about what I think is right. (or at least what she tells us is right)

      Many of you are well enough off that the tax cuts may have helped you. We’re saying that for America to get back on track, we’re probably going to cut that short and not give it to you. We’re going to take things away from you on behalf of the common good.


      The American people are tired of liars and people who pretend to be something they’re not.”

      Holy @#$#!!! The “common good”. Are we living in 1930′s Germany, the Socialist Soviet Republic, or what?

      Anyone who does not care to work for what they have, or want, are behind her 100%. Yet, where do they think their free-rides will be coming from when those of us who have worked our butts off for what we have are in the same boat they are? (jealous they are when they should be making something of their lives)

      What is happening to our soveriegnty? Truly frightening.

      #6 I can decipher that quote ” distribution of wealth”

      The common good btw is the middle class, so in effect, any good should be directed to the middle class, thus tax breaks for the middle class

      The middle class pays more tax than any other bracket .

      Remember the FBI files of the Republicans that ended up in the White House basement and the files from Rose Law Firm that were missing and couldn’t be found that ended up in the private living quarters in the closet of the white house with pages gone? It never ends.

      What a sorry couple of choices the dems have put up for president – the habitual liar and the closet radical.

      Both with NO experience. Pathetic, useless, pandering, socialists!

      What a witch she really is. Her husband got uh S into NAFTA, and sent our jobs overseas. He closed numerous military bases putting our country at great risk. A friend at the White House said the family trashed the place when they left. Now she wants to do a re-run? I don’t think so. Hello!
