Hillary held a book signing in Chappaqua on Saturday.  It was sold out almost as soon as it was announced, but Linda Lee and Jill Melody got tickets. They had a wonderful day and had a chance to chat with Hillary. Here are a few photos they shared.

These are some of the dancers in the video Hillary tweeted.

“It’s like that old story; you can’t keep snakes in your backyard and expect them only to bite your neighbors. Eventually, those snakes are going to turn on whoever has them in the backyard.” – HRC

This is an excellent allegorical warning that Hillary Clinton issued in October 2011 during bilateral remarks with then Pakistani Foreign Minister Hina Rabbani Khar. The reference, at the time, was to Pakistan harboring the Haqqani Network and the Taliban.

Here are those remarks and that statement in context >>>>

Secretary Clinton’s Remarks With Pakistani Foreign Minister Hina Rabbani Khar

October 21, 2011

“… we both agreed that terrorism coming from any source is a threat to all of us. We expressed very clearly our concerns about safe havens on both sides of the border. We reasserted our commitment to doing more on the Afghan side of the border to try to eliminate safe havens that fuel insurgency and attacks inside Pakistan. And we asked very specifically for greater cooperation from the Pakistani side to squeeze the Haqqani Network and other terrorists, because we know that trying to eliminate terrorists and safe havens on one side of the border is not going to work. It’s like that old story; you can’t keep snakes in your backyard and expect them only to bite your neighbors. Eventually, those snakes are going to turn on whoever has them in the backyard. We know that – on both sides of the border. ”

It was only six years ago. We could not have conceived, such a short time ago, that those words could possibly apply to ourselves or to any loyal Americans. Yet here we are.

I watched the marathon of Homeland, Season 4 tonight. The opening credits for that season include a short clip of Hillary delivering those words. Funny how words that only a few years past can have meant one thing then and something new now.

Snakes in the backyard. Yes, Pakistan did and does harbor snakes in their backyard. But now we know that there are snakes in our own backyard: Foreign entities on social media influencing the American electorate. Some of these snakes arrived wearing American skin.

In her memoir, What Happened, Hillary identified the social media landscape as the new battlefield of 21st century warfare.

We have been attacked. Special Counsel Mueller’s investigation is ferreting out snakes. But we, too, must be on the lookout for snakes on our social media pages.

Even the snakes you nurture and consider pets are still snakes. Hillary’s words should resound deafeningly!

Our friend and veteran Hillary Clinton supporter par excellence, Dr. Mary K. Sandford, is, among her many accomplishments, a singer, musician and composer. Here’s a tribute video she made using a song she wrote about the 2016 election and its results. She has included archival photos from Hillary’s career, the past election, and from Mary’s own family album.

Enjoy!

The 2016 Election Blues (in A)

Dedicated to Hillary Rodham Clinton

Verse 1

Saw you yesterday

My heart broke again

Said you were outta the woods

With us through thick and thin.

The crowd was mesmerized.

Hanging on every word.

Said, Here’s how we gonna change the world.

This is what I heard.

We gotta Resist, Insist, Persist, and Enlist.

                That’s what we gotta do

Resist, Insist, Persist, and Enlist 

                 That’s what we gotta do

Verse 2

Never saw it coming

That hard punch from the Right,

Putin had the fix in,

Found out that awful night.

But you’ll never give up.

You’re back in the fight

Said, Let’s turn this darkness

Back into the light

We gotta Resist, Insist, Persist, and Enlist.

                That’s what we gotta do.

Resist, Insist, Persist, and Enlist 

                 That’s what we gotta do.

Verse 3

First heard your name

Back in 1974.

Mama said, You got to meet this gal

Someday she’s gonna soar.

Mama’s words proved true

You live by a creed.

When they brought their lies and hate

You said love and kindness are what we need

We gotta Resist, Insist, Persist, and Enlist.

                That’s what we gotta do.

Resist, Insist, Persist, and Enlist 

                 That’s what we gotta do.

Verse 4

The election was a travesty

Didn’t go the way we planned

It’d be so easy to give up,

Turn our backs on our land.

And who ever decided

Not to help those in need?

A familiar voice rings out

Calls for justice and equality

Says We gotta Resist, Insist, Persist, and Enlist.

                That’s what we gotta do.

Resist, Insist, Persist, and Enlist 

                 That’s what we gotta do.

Friend —

It has been a joy to see so many of you during the first days of touring for “What Happened” and my new children’s book, “It Takes a Village.” Your smiles and stories warm my heart, and your promises to keep fighting inspire me. I’m looking forward to seeing many more of you over the next few weeks, across the country and even at home in our favorite independent bookstore in Chappaqua.

One thing I’m hearing over and over again is a question I’ve gotten a lot since the election: “How are you doing?”

The answer is that, as an American, I’m pretty concerned. But as a person, I’m okay. It’s nice to be able to spend so much time at home with Bill and our dogs, and to catch up with friends I haven’t seen in a while. I’ve even been doing a little gardening with our granddaughter — Charlotte is particularly proud of our peas and peppers.

Last week, I had the opportunity to speak at a memorial service for Edie Windsor, whose Supreme Court case helped pave the way for marriage equality. Her service, much like her life, was a reminder that in the fight for a more perfect union, love will always be stronger than hate. I’ll be thinking of Edie this week as we forge ahead in our own fight, and I hope you will, too.

Onward!

Hillary

P.S. Thank you to everyone who has made a donation to Onward Together, posted about it on Facebook, or talked to your friends about this team. I’m thrilled to share a little bit in the profile below about one of the groups that Onward Together has endorsed, Color of Change, and the work they’re doing.


Onward Together works to build a brighter future for generations to come by supporting groups that encourage people to organize in their communities or run for office. Because you’re an important part of Onward Together, we wanted you to get a chance to know these groups a little bit better. To learn more about Onward Together, click here.
The organization: Color Of Change

The organizer: Rashad Robinson, Executive Director of Color Of Change

The mission: To mobilize participation in winning campaigns that accelerate progress toward racial justice — in criminal justice reform, voting rights, fairness in news reporting and entertainment media, economic justice, environmental justice and other critical issues that affect Black people, people of color, and all people.

The story: With more than one million members, Color Of Change is the nation’s largest online racial justice organization. Founded in response to Hurricane Katrina in 2005, its purpose was to create an effective, powerful organizing platform for Black people and their allies to unite their voices, leverage technology, engage the media, and ultimately hold corporate and government decision makers accountable. Color Of Change works to change the rules of policy, politics, media and corporate practices at the local, state and national levels–to create a more human and less hostile world for all people.

The latest: Over the last year, Color Of Change has been at the forefront of holding accountable those who enable Trump and the extremist, right wing agenda he stands for, from corporate executives to local prosecutors. Color Of Change has led successful campaigns to get Glenn Beck (2011) and Bill O’Reilly (2017) ousted from Fox News; force business leaders to abandon Trump’s various business councils; force Paypal, American Express, and a number of finance and tech companies to cut off payment processing — and therefore the fuel — to white supremacist groups that are trying to create more attacks on our values like Charlottesville; and to make sure politicians stand up for freedoms instead of caving to corporate interests.

The next step: Color Of Change will continue leading the fight to end mass incarceration, police violence, and unfair bail practices, while holding prosecutors accountable to making decisions that favor community safety and growth rather than corporate profits. Most critically, Color Of Change will use public pressure to hold Trump’s enablers accountable and cut off his power base, end some of the most harmful and far-reaching policies and practices of his administration, and mobilize Black voters at higher and higher levels.
