Posted on 05/25/2005 3:51:38 AM PDT by johnny7
As Hillary Clinton begins lining up support for the Iowa caucuses, the author of a new book denounces her role in threatening Bill's women. "She will do anything for political power."
Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) May 25, 2005 -- As Hillary Rodham Clinton begins her campaign for the White House by courting voters in Iowa, the state whose caucuses signal the kick-off to the Presidential race, new charges have emerged that may sink the Senator's chances to return to the Oval Office. A controversial new book contends that Hillary played an active role in husband Bill Clinton's efforts to bribe, threaten, and intimidate the former objects of his desire who later became political nuisances.
Candice E. Jackson -- former Judicial Watch legal counsel and author of the new book "Their Lives: The Women Targeted by the Clinton Machine" (World Ahead Publishing, hardback; $25.95 US; ISBN 0974670138) -- writes that Hillary Clinton was not a victim of Bill's philandering. Instead, she makes the case that Hillary was an active partner who helped Bill wield his political power to attack the women who got in their way. The book is set to hit bookstore shelves on May 31, the same day as the paperback release of the former President's memoir "My Life."
"Hillary Clinton has shown over and over that she will do anything for political power," says Jackson. "She played an active role in helping her husband harass and intimidate the women who got in their way of their march to the top. Given her track record, women everywhere should be scared by the idea that Hillary may one day return to 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue. "Senator Clinton can't credibly claim to be ignorant about the attacks her husband leveled against the women linked to him," Jackson asserts. "Bill's people hired private investigators to intimidate ex-girlfriends, used bribery to try to silence key witnesses, and sent tough guys to scare women who had been subpoenaed. And through it all, Hillary was there, not just standing by her man but actively smearing these poor women in the media."
With speculation of the former First Lady's presidential candidacy rising in the wake of her recent invitation to key Iowa supporters to visit her home in Washington, DC, the explosive accusations in "Their Lives" are sure to play a key role in Hillary's political future. In fact, Clinton acolytes have already taken to national media outlets to denounce the author, who is a recovering victim of rape. "Hillary and Bill have no qualms about attacking women who come forward to reveal the truth," says Jackson, who remains defiant in the face of continued Clintonian smears. "Even if they have thugs harass my family like they did to Gennifer Flowers, or send shadowy figures to approach me like they did to Kathleen Willey, it won't deter me. We have got to get to the bottom of what Hillary Clinton did to hurt these women before she tries to reclaim the White House."

Shocked, just shocked. The Clintons? Intimidating people?
Can't imagine this book changing many minds. If you don't know who Hillary is by now it would take a smoking gun video to convince otherwise. How many swing voters (you know the great undecided a month before the election) are even paying attention to politics.
People on the right make the mistake of thinking the issues that cause them to dislike Hillary are the issues that will make the political center and left hate Hillary.
It is just a giant falacy. How many times do people have to offer convincing proof that Clinton abuses women and Hillary helps him, before they realize that 60 percent of the voters do not care.
The public knows Bill and Hillary are immoral,and corrupt. A majority of that group believes Bill and Hillary will rip off the rich on their behalf. They believe Bill and Hillary generated nearly a decade of great prosperity, and if the price for that prosperity is a few rapes, beatings, and intimidations... then it is ok.. As the saying goes if it ain't me, my spouse,or my daugher... then I don't want to know.
That is the attitude.
The public does not even care about corruption. The attitude is if I get mine, then it is Ok if the Clintons get theirs. The public just gets mad at those who bring up the issue.
Anything to keep the 'ball-cutter' out of office works for me.
A man was accused of sexually assaulting his relative.
Hilary used some legal arguments garnered from some D.C. attorney friends to convince the Judge in the case to reduce the sexual assault charges against his female relative.
From the start she used and abused women to her own end.
This is an evil, immoral woman but that's just fine with her sycophant supporters.
I'm afraid that wouldn't even deter the rabid liberals in this country. They would just claim the video was altered or made up.... because they are willing to tolerate anything for power.
This book should give Hillary a major Excedrin headache...I suggest she "oughtta put some ice on that"
Proof of that can be found in the fact that 47% of voters voted for a treasonous rat in the last election.
"Former Judicial Watch legal counsel"? How impressive! LOL!
Well, at least she wrote a book and is doing something that she can actually point to and show some success.
Just remember that the smartest woman in the world got outsmarted by a 20 year old with a blue dress.
We all need to keep our heads up about Hitlery. Hitler and Stalin killed more people than anyone else and there is a trail of BLOOD behind the Clintons.
Hillary wasnt outsmarted by Hillary. Hillary knew about her the whole time, but as long as it kept Bill from bothering her for sex she looked the other way. She always looked the other way no matter what woman was the object of Bill's lust. Their marriage has nothing to do with love its a marriage of convenience and political necessity.
"Just remember that the smartest woman in the world got outsmarted by a 20 year old with a blue dress."
Good point. Hellery is a scorpion who lives by the stinger. There's only one thing to do with a scorpion, smash it before it stings you. And she can be smashed.
I hope she has much more credibility than Kitty Kelly! For the book to be convincing, she needs to name her sources and hopefully has evidence to back her claims.
"We all need to keep our heads up about Hitlery. Hitler and Stalin killed more people than anyone else and there is a trail of BLOOD behind the Clintons."
Right on. Most FReepers hold "The Strange Death of Vince Foster" in high regard, and for good reason. The 'investigation' simply didn't add up. Many of us are curious about the strange head hole in Brown's head, despite the amazing level of denial by many conservatives, who would trust Snopes more than four forensics specialists backed up by x-ray evidence. [Many others in the body count too, but just to pick the high profile ones for a minute.]
But then there's the character evidence, displaying a very low value on human life:
1. The pardon of a crack dealer for cash
2. The pardon of FALN bomb terrorists for votes
3. The prison blood scandal
5. The vetoes of the partial birth abortion ban
This is the kind of mind that can kill. No regard for human life, whatsoever.
WRONG. WRONG. WRONG. WRONG. WRONG:
"Can't imagine this book changing many minds. If you don't know who Hillary is by now it would take a smoking gun video to convince otherwise."
Human convictions are like onions. They can only take in truth one level at a time. You might as well write off the free world. For goodness sake, half the voters in this country are women. If you were on George Washington's war council, he'd kick you out of his tent, on the spot. I wouldn't do that to you if I could, because I like to think that half the reason you are here is to learn.
I just get set off by wet blankets. Been fighting them from the beginning at this forum. Wet blankets don't spread any kind of fire, whatsoever. They just rain on everyone. We have enough rain, especially right now, after this Senate Sellout.
Consider yourself smacked by Patton's glove. Quit snivelling and get back in the war!
WE HAVE YET BEGUN TO FIGHT!
My opinion is that those that eat this type of book up might talk about it on threads like these, but will they buy it? If Jackson gets the interviews on prime time, perhaps it will get more notice; but the lives of the Clintons are no shock to anyone.
After a while people become desensitized to their crimes and misdemeanors". A big seller? Doubt it. Just another brick in the wall already tagged with the same old Clinton graffiti.
You either hate the Clintons or follow in their entourage. Will it "shock"? As I said earlier, I doubt it.
You're so defeatist you're disarming yourself before the fight even starts. We need to do our best to keep up our spirits and use whatever we have against her. If we'd gone in to the 2004 election thinking this way Kerry would have won.
Wrong. Most libs don't know of the pairs 'dark-side'... and what little they read or hear is automatically 'deleted' as junk-mail from the RNC. They know Hillary by her political record and the constant 'oral' she recieves by the MSM.
The Swift Boat Vets found a way to to get their message out about Kerry... and it affected an election. Who's to say that something 'similar' could befall the one with the one with the load-bearing ankles?
We thinks alike.
Thanks for encouraging the Rabble of Doom. Hillary is not going to be elected if...we maintain the right POV!
MY long shot $ is on George Allen in '08.
To have an effect, the information in this book would require widespread and favorable attention in the MSM. Being that the media is partisan, that won't happen.
"Look guys and gals this is real simple THE GENERAL PUBLIC DOESN'T CARE."
You sure are bent on convincing people of this. I guess that based on the kind of friends you have, perhaps you believe this. I guess you aren't very persuasive when you broach the subject, if you even have the guts to. You definitely need to learn more.
There is also the gross-out factor. People don't like being on the wrong side. The more grossed out they are on their position, the more likely they won't fight very hard for their cause. Ever stop and think about that?
This ship is just too rough for you, but it isn't for me. This ship is for those who are willing to fight a tough fight. This is the ship that launched our forum in the first place. If the waters are too rough, get off. And quit trying to be a wet blanket for those who are riding it out.
BINGO! YOU WIN THE PRIZE!

"Thanks for encouraging the Rabble of Doom. Hillary is not going to be elected if...we maintain the right POV!

Rabble of Doom? I think you mean to say that Truth is not what will win out?
"To have an effect, the information in this book would require widespread and favorable attention in the MSM. Being that the media is partisan, that won't happen."
You gotta' be kidding! Where's your head been since 1998? Deep freeze?
The best book promotion tool around is Talk Radio. How much did the MSM help the Swift Boat Vets?
No question the Swift Boat Vets made a difference. But don't forget, they had to run prime time ads on the MSM. Even so, because of unfavorable media coverage, there were plenty of everyday Americans wondering if those guys weren't just part of a smear campaign. They'd have made a massively larger difference had the media given them the same kind of attention it gave to reports of Bush's National Guard history.
The book and the facts in it aren't likely to be part of a national ad campaign and the MSM isn't giving it a fair hearing either.
But I hope you are right and I am wrong.
No one is a "wet blanket" as you commented to the other poster; however if you can't take creative criticsm and counter with the same and only script "waters are too rough..get off", then you will alienate and not accumulate positive response.
I have some misgivings as well to the "power" of this book; but I think this was a Free country where we can express our views and opinions last time I looked. We are on the same side; but doesn't mean we have to think, walk, talk and bob our heads the same way.
I probably will not buy this book; I will catch the highlights on talk/Fox and like and unlikely minded news outlets.
That should read-BEWARE HILLARY (WINO) and her HINO.
"But don't forget, they had to run prime time ads on the MSM."
Yes, that's a good point, too. There may come a time when conservatives have to sue to get their ads out. Which is fine. Imagine the hits the old media would take if a swiftboat group had to sue for its ads to be seen! Imagine the curiosity that would generate.
There is the internet too. I have a feeling that as new generations reach maturity, the MSM becomes less important. FR for instance had a measurable impact on the last election, IMO.
"I probably will not buy this book"
Thank you for sharing that with everyone. /sarcasm.
As for alienating people, I can't forsee much common ground with someone who persists in discouraging others, based on some deluded notion that people are incapable of being reached. It's pure cynicism. Why should I respect that?
And, I am speaking from personal experience.
There are many, many times I was tempted to predict that certain moments of political activism would be a waste of time, money, and energy, but did I share those thoughts? I may have on occassion for a brief time, but then thought better of it later. I regret those few times I did.
And sure enough, there were times I was glad I kept my mouth shut. Because people achieved more than I had dared hope for at times.
I don't know about you, but I'm ticked off right now. We need to slap ourselves into focus and start accomplishing something, rather than wasting time discouraging others. You can console the ones throwing down their rifles if you want, but not until after I've given them a wakeup call. They should look at themselves, feel ashamed, and do something useful.
"It all comes down to choosing a strong Republican candidate; then books like these really shouldn't matter. Sure they may sway a few voters, but if you don't have the Right Candidate you won't have the Vote."
No candidate is so perfect that Hellery won't find something on him or her. This scorpion must be smashed. You can't win through "Mr./Mrs./Mizzz Perfect", not when there are raw FBI files, IRS agents willing to audit anyone for her, and special snooping agents. It WILL require negative campaigning to take her down, and I pity the one who defeats her, becuase there will be a rectal exam-- you can take that to the bank.
I can just see Hillary strangling Katy Willy's cat and puncturing her car tires.
Too many of us are just rolling over, becoming hopelessly defeatist, and getting ready to give the presidency to the Witch. That's just not the way to go.
I bet 'ol Hil put up with a couple of them 3-somes... and maybe some barnyard animals along that dark and winding road.
