Clinton decries ‘pattern’ of secrecy (this is rich)
Newsday ^ | Newsday | GLENN THRUSH

Posted on 02/14/2006 8:22:48 PM PST by Utah Girl

Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton thinks White House delays in disclosing Dick Cheney's shotgun mishap are evidence of a vast West Wing conspiracy to stonewall journalists and voters.

Clinton told reporters Tuesday that the nearly 24-hour lag proved the White House has a "disturbing" tendency to "withhold information" no matter what the issue.

"I don't think that one incident alone tells a story, but put it all together, going back years, there's a pattern and it's a pattern that should be troubling," Clinton said during a Capitol Hill news conference criticizing the administration's handling of Hurricane Katrina.

"I don't care if you're a conservative, a liberal, a Democrat, a Republican, an Independent -- the refusal of this administration to level with the American people in matters large and small is very disturbing because it goes counter to the way our constitutional democracy ... is supposed to work," she added.

Oh yes, Hil, this is just a small part of the current administration's failure to level with the American people. Fine statments coming from someone whose favorite words seem to be "I can't recall".

She's correct. This explains Whitewater.

Rush Limbaugh mentioned today that the suicide of Vince Foster was not announced by the Clinton White House until 30 hours after the fact. The hypocrisy of liberals and their media is beyond stunning.

Hey, Hill -

Where did the Rose Law Firm billing records spend their missing years?

Who sanitized Vince Foster's office after he turned up in Fort Marcy Park?

Who is Chelsea's biological dad?

Hey, Hillary, first disclose to us what really happened to Vince Foster, who set up the hit, who wrote the fake suicide note, etc. etc. etc.

Then tell us about that plane crash with Ron Brown aboard, and how he got the two bullets in his head.

After that, tell us how your husband's bastard son is doing in college in Australia.

No hillary, it was just plain stupidity.
It was a NOTHING STORY that became a SOMETHING STORY only because the VP acted like an idiot.

This is very different from Vince Foster which is a SOMETHING STORY from the getgo.

I saw this news conference on Britt Hume's show tonight and was astonished to see Hillary wearing a cross around her neck. I have never noticed her ever wearing one...perhaps more of her "moving toward the center." Actually was surprised it wasn't burning a hole in her neck.

If Hillary Clinton, the democrat party and their media think that this very mean, very nasty, very arrogant woman can really be elected President than we to have a new definition for delusion and stupidity. Do they really think that the majority of voters, including the majority of women, would not realize long before election day 2008 how mean, nasty, and arrogant Hillary Clinton is? Do they know that no matter what Hillary Clinton tries to fool the people and the media try to protect her that the majority of voters would see her true nasty character no matter what and they will not elect her?

New York is an extremely liberal state and the main reason she did not run in Arkansas her home state for 25 years is because she cannot be elected there.

Talking about going on forever, I hate to even bring this up, but as you can see, I'm fairly new here and, would like to get this off my chest. Anita Hill, I believe it was, the Clarence Thomas hearings. Anita Hill, the Deputy Secretary of the Civil Rights Department, who enforces the law and should know the law, gets in front of a Senate Judiciary Committee and accuses Justice Thomas of inappropriate conduct, without, the necessary documentation as required by law (she is entrusted to enforce).

Sorry, closet conservative. whew that felt good.

She is so weak, ineffective, transparent, uncreative and unappealing. I don't think she is even going to run for President. Or if she does, quit early on in return for a promise to be the V.P. nominee.

Hillary Clinton makes a $44,000 profit on a $2,000 investment in a cellular phone franchise deal that involves taking advantage of the FCC's preference for locals, minorities and women. The franchise is almost immediately flipped to the cellular giant, McCaw.

A drug pilot brings a Cessna 210 full of cocaine into eastern Arkansas where he is met by his pick-up: a state trooper in a marked police car. "Arkansas," the pilot will recall years later, "was a very good place to load and unload."

According to his wife, security operative Jerry Parks delivers large sums of money from Mena airport to Vince Foster at a K-Mart parking lot. Mrs. Parks discovers this when she opens her car trunk one day and finds so much cash that she has to sit on the trunk to close it again. She asks her husband whether he is dealing drugs, and he allegedly explains that Foster paid him $1,000 for each trip he took to Mena.

Parks said he didn't "know what they were doing, and he didn't care to know. He told me to forget what I'd seen.". . . .Later Ambrose Evans-Pritchard will write, "Foster was using him as a kind of operative to collect sensitive information on things and do sensitive jobs. Some of this appears to have been done on behalf of Hillary Clinton. . . Foster told him that Hillary wanted it done. Now, my understanding . . . is that she wanted to know how vulnerable he would be in a presidential race on the question of -- how shall I put it? -- his appetites."

In 1993, on the night before Vince Foster's death, Parks' wife claims she hears a heated conversation between her husband and Foster in which Parks says, "You can't give Hillary those files, they've got my name all over them." Parks will be gunned down two months after Foster's death in his car outside of Little Rock. Parks is shot through the rear window of his car and shot three more times, thru the side window, with a 9mm pistol.

Parks was running American Contract Services, the business which supplied bodyguards for Clinton during his presidential campaign and the following transition. Bill Clinton still owed him $81,000. Parks had collected detailed data on Clinton's sexual escapades, including pictures and dates. Mrs. Pariks claims federal agents subsequently removed files and computer.
