Long-Lost Moon Rock Turns Up In Clinton Papers
http://www.nbclosangeles.com/ ^

Posted on 09/22/2011 8:37:52 AM PDT by jakerobins

A long-lost, highly valuable Moon rock brought back from the Apollo 17 mission has turned up in the files of Bill Clinton.

The rock was one of 50 presented to each state, and was given to Arkansas while the ex-president was governor. The rock, worth millions of dollars, had been missing since at least 1980 until an archivist found it in old gubernatorial papers. Bobby Roberts, director of the Central Arkansas Library System, told Reuters the archivist opened a box previously archived as "Arkansas flag plaque." The rock and a state flag were originally affixed to the plaque, but the rock had fallen off and the plaque had been misplaced.

The only thing Hill and Clintbilly forgot was to take it with them when they left the White House.

I guess they were so busy packing antique furniture and china into the vans—not to speak of FBI records—that they just plain forgot about it.

Heh. No doubt the moon rock was merely there to weigh down a birth certificate.

The rock, worth millions of dollars

Why do conservatives make such poor investigative journalists/dirt diggers? If he had been a Republican, this would've been all over the front page of the New York Times within a year.

It should have played a role in his impeachment and even today it ought to put him in prison.

I am surprised they did not find it on top of the Rose Law firm’s billing records that eventually showed up on that WH table.

Don’t forget aslo trashing the WH, pulling the letter “W” from all the keyboards, and if the rumor is to be believed, taking a dump on the Oval office desk which I do believe. They were angry Gore was prevented from stealing the election so they did what Democrats always do; Destroy like the little children they are.

Damnit! Quit jumping to conclusions that it was Bill! Maybe it was Hillary’s? Did the batteries fall out of “the rock”?

Here is a simple (and probably fictional) explanation:

Someone handed the rock to Governor Clinton and told him it was "Moonrock". He thanked the person and set the rock aside, thinking it was some kind of new drug. Later, after unsuccessfully trying to smoke it, he got hold of some REAL 'rock' and got 'all smoked up'.

Early the next afternoon he woke up with a bad headache and NO memory of the "Moonrock". When he later found it under the sofa-bed in the governor's office, he thought: "What a cool rock, one of my bitches must have left it for me". He put it on his desk and began using as a paperweight. When he left office, the "Moonrock" ended up in a copier paper box of stuff cleaned off his desk, and was later shipped to the Whitehouse and then to his office in Harlem.

It could have happened to ANYONE... ...anyone who was the amoral, coke-fiend governor of a poor southern state who later got elected president of the United States because a crazy midget ran as a third party candidate (twice), that is...

“Bill misplaced it after using it to impress some broad.”

I don’t know what he did with it and I don’t want to know.

And also, the sex devices and dildoes hung on the Christmas trees as Christmas ornaments during Clinton’s time in the WH.

People people people: Do not be fooled. This is just a planted story, true or not, it doesn’t matter. It puts Clinton—THE Clintons—in the news and not in a bad way.

Note the recent spate of “news” stories with Bill Clinton out there recently.

Something’s up with the Clintons. It’s got to be Hillary running. She’s probably right now at a fat farm and getting botoxed in preparation. Her photographers are probably going through a professional photoshop refresher class as we speak.

The one gift the Clintonists gave America is the gift that keeps on giving. That was making a deal with the banksters to drop loan qualification standards and turn our real estate market into a scam of low income loans.

He and Rubin crashed the whole American middle class, investors, and banks globally with this number.

I suspect the missing letters on all the typewriters & keyboards are also in those archives.

In light of all the bad behavior the Clintons participated in while in the White House, I surely don’t see how the Dems would want either of them back into that place in the future.
