Activists plan protest for Hillary Clinton visit

SAN DIEGO – Hillary Clinton cancelled her upcoming visit to San Diego in the midst of a planned protest.

Clinton will be the keynote speaker for the 17th Annual Western Healthcare Leadership Academy on April 11. She was originally going to deliver the speech in person, but will now be seen by satellite.

Thillary-clinton-healthhe three day event will be being held at the San Diego Convention Center with 700 people expected to attend.

Jan Iverson created an organization called “The Difference Matters” to protest Mrs. Clinton’s quest for the presidency, because of her role in Benghazi.

“She is not welcome here in San Diego by so many of us.  We don’t want her here,” said Iverson.

Pat Smith lost her son, Sean Smith, during an attack in Benghazi and plans to be at the center of the protest, Iverson said.

“Working with her is gratifying, and it spurs on what we are doing,” Iverson said.

Dr. Ted Mazer believes people should put politics aside, because Clinton is well versed on the hottest topic at the conference.

“The protest has nothing to do with us,” said Dr. Mazer. “We are trying to talk about where we are and where we are going in medicine.  Who is better to talk about that than someone with a history of about 20 years or more now dealing with health care reform.”

Mazer also said the participation is exceptional for this year’s event.

Officials from  Clinton’s office say the change of plans came because of scheduling issues.  She is expected in San Jose the day before she was supposed to be in San Diego.

The protest will take place at the San Diego Convention Center April 11 at 9:30 a.m.

    She’s running from the protest. Hopefully most of the lemmings who think womanizing slick Willy Clinton was the greatest ever will start to understand this woman is pure evil! She IGNORED pleas for help and allowed 4 AMERICANS TO DIE. Get a brain and vote anything but Demoncrats in the next election and especially in ’16 people.

      Dr. Mazer, should have had the balls to cancel for presentation. Her speaking at the convention has everything to do with his organization…integrity, honesty, principles, morality, and being held accountable. "What difference does it matter?" You enabled 4 Americans to be murdered…that's what matters Hillary.

      How asinine,how absurd to say that this tyrant and her minions have been"working" on health care for "20 years"
      In reality this woman has a long term record of scandal,deceit,failure with a pile of dead bodies murdered,inexplicably dead people who just happened to be familiar with the never ending scandals that were "buried" along with their bodies as Bill and Hill continue their evisceration of the Constitution,the Constitutional Republic,the Law!@!

      Hill was a partner in the "Rose Law Firm" where "associates" were found guilty of crimes but,once again Hill slithered out of the mess while others took the fall!
      Oh,remember the Warren Commission charged with investigating the Kennedy "murders"? Hill was an attorney for the commission but was "let go" for supposedly falsifying her "work". Oh,maybe someone can enlighten me as to how Hill ran for and was elected as a Senator from N.Y. when inf FACT she NEVER lived there nor did Bill!
      The travel scandal,and now her Failure,more scandals,more murders on her watch as Secretary Of State.
      Oh,and just yesterday it was reported that $6 billion of taxpayer dollars could NOT be accounted for,was missing from the State Dept budget and guess who was Secretary of State?

    Bill and Hillary Clinton should be in prison for crimes against humanity for what they did to their fellow citizens at Waco, TX, on April 19, 1993. The Waco Massacre and church burning (it was not a “compound,” it was their church),was the most brutal, heinous violation of civil, human and Constitutional rights in this nation's history. Innocent men, women and children were attacked with tanks, poison gas (CS gas turns to cyanide when heated) and burned alive. Those who ran from the church were machine-gunned as documented in the movie "Waco, The Rules of Engagement." If you doubt how bad this was consider that you never hear the left stream media talk about it. They want it erased from history but this memorial site will remain forever:

    And if that weren't bad enough, Clinton's thugs then stuck a machine gun in the face of a 5 year old boy and sent him to the communist gulag known as Cuba: www . therealcuba . com/elian_gonzalez . htm
    Let's hope Clinton isn't teaching President Prompter too many of his old tricks!
    Here is a list of the children murdered at Waco:
    Lisa Martin 13, Sheila Martin, Jr. 15, Rachel Sylvia 12, Hollywood Sylvia 1,
    Joseph Martinez 8, Abigail Martinez 11, Crystal Martinez 3 Isaiah Martinez 4
    Audrey Martinez 13, Melissa Morrison 6, Chanel Andrade 1, Cyrus Koresh 8
    Star Koresh 6, Bobbie Lane Koresh 2, Dayland Gent 3, Page Gent 1,
    Mayanah Schneider 2, Startle Summers 1, Serenity Jones 4, Chica Jones 2,
    Little One Jones 2

      They should have used tanks and bombers on the Waco Scum. Better yet; Flame throwers, they were told surrender, they did not. All bets are off: Open fire, and shoot to kill.

    Discounting the rumor and misplaced blame, if there's any reason to reject Hillary Clinton as a candidate it is because she, like many of her ilk, is a corporate whore who will continue the trend of selling out the American people for profit; endangering our oceans, our land, our air and our water.

    If the Democrats are stupid enough to run her, the GOP is going to have to pull out one of its whackaloons to counter her. And at that point, I hope to move to a beach down in Baja and sit in the shade, drinking Coco Locos and laughing at the news from the north.

    If only the rest of the country would exhibit this kind of courage – refuse to let the corrupt bloated Hag spread her venom and lies!

    The coward Hillary can't face her accuser's and has to hide. Does anyone really want Hillary answering that 3:00am call in the WH living quarter's? Do you really want this coward as your Commander-in-Chief?

    The Whitehouse (Obama) and The State department are closed 24/7 to anything that will hurt them politically; especially just before election day. If any American's who are in harms way overseas; and they beg for protection. And they get slaughtered for lack of protection, then as Hillary would say " what difference does it make "

    Hey Hillary,
    How'd that RESET button work out for ya?
    About as good as the Arab Spring?
    About as good as Benghazi?
    You and Obama made quite a team.

    So Hillary Clinton had 2 events yesterday in San Diego with thousands of attendees. I guess prior notion of her not being welcomed is grossly wrong.
