Jokes are flying about Clintons' 'Hillbilly' airport
New York Daily News ^ | April 22 , 2013

Posted on 04/22/2013 4:03:39 PM PDT by SMGFan

The new Bill and Hillary Clinton National Airport in Little Rock, Ark., will hold a dedication ceremony May 3 featuring the former President and his wife and ex- Secretary of State — but there’s just one problem for the snazzy new airport.

“Locals are calling it the Hillbilly Airport,” one insider tells Confidenti@l. “And project managers certainly don’t want an airport named after our President called Hillbilly. In the South. How does that look to the world?”

Our insider explains that when you depart the airport, you are met with huge signs that invite the public to “come meet” Bill and Hillary, who will be at the ceremony held at the airport, along with state dignitaries who will show off the facility’s $67 million overhaul, which includes redesigned check-in and baggage screening areas. There are also plans to make “Hillbilly” Airport an international airport down the line

Will every plane landing or departing have at least one pre-stained blue seat cover?

I thought this airport was an international port several years ago. Do others know?

With all of the government money those two grifters had their hands on you would think they would build something classy like the Clinton Presidential Library.

It would be fabulous to have a Monica impersonator parachute in to the ceremony. Even though the MSM would ignore it, the video would definitely go viral.

I use this airport several times a year from where I live in Memphis. The draw - Southwest Airlines. It’s a nice airport, small, therefore easy to get in and out of quickly. It’s a “National” airport not and “International” airport. I noticed they were going to rename for Clintons and was very dismayed at that. However, I’ll continue to use until Southwest gets it together in Memphis (Southwest bought Air Tran).

both well deserving of jail cells but they get an airport instead. It pays to be a liar and a slime bag.

So, my guess is that the airport code will now be BJB.

Stands for “Blow Job Bill”.

Hill Billy?

One of the Pilots that flew out of the covert operation in Mena AR while BJ Clinton was governor was Barry Seal. Have read he mocked Clinton by saying with an Arkie accent “Yeee Haaa Sooowie!”

Barry Seal’s demise to the drug Cartels is a sad ending to a spooks life.

There were some wild things that happened prior to Iran Contra in AR.

One of the links on the Barry Seal page yielded this:

” “ordering an end to the CIA’s continued training of anti-Castro guerrillas at the small, scattered camps in Florida”

A buddy of mine grew up in Miami in the 60’s and used to hunt the glades with his pals on weekends in high school.

He tells a story of them being about 4 miles off the closet road, entering a hammock and stumbling across a camp of Cuban guys in fatigues with military weapons.

After they cleaned their shorts the Cubans talked with them for a bit, checked out their guns and let them go their way.

I like most Cubans (those here in US). Have met some of them from Cuba, never know about them.

Had dinner with the Chief Engineer for Radio Havana a number of years ago. Arnie. He claimed to be a technico not a politico. Still nut sure if I believed him, but he was an excellent tech.

My exposure to the area was quite a few years after the operation ceased in the US. The locals still would not talk about what went on.

I knew a local businessman in Mena, that I trusted and he trusted me. Even he disliked talking about it.

It’s designed for easy expansion. Just add another trailer. They had to upgrade the network. The to cans started to rust and people kept running over all strings laying around.

It didn’t stop with Iran Contra, they just switched to more to the ground operation.

They were running dope from S Texas up Highway 59 into Arkansas. It involved a lot of corrupt cops. I had a run in with one and almost got myself killed because of it.

Part of the operation involved the Chicago police taking the guns confiscated on the streets hauling them to Mexico and trading the guns for dope.

Clinton’s Arkansas State Troopers were providing the dope runners with protection when they brought the dope through Ark. and were targeting their opposition.

Clinton had ordered his state troopers to racial profile to target the opposition drug dealers.

They were stopping and harassing so many people of the minority persuasion the Reagan/Bush DoJ sued Clinton for racial profiling.

Hillary has made it her life’s work to try and pin racial profiling on republicans and G W Bush ever since.

Clinton also got himself sued for “voter disenfranchisement”
while gov. he just didn't like the way blacks voted so he changed the vote, which is why Hillary concocted the “voter disenfranchisement” after the 2000 election.
