So you think Cornyn will be the ‘heir apparent’? Wasn’t Cornyn the guy who lavished praise about Nancy Pelosi some years back? He went on and on about how sweet and wonderful and thoughtful she was. I was distressing and disgusting that he didn’t know any better. A noodle for a spine, that man. Maybe he’s learned the truth by now.

The word was out that our Rino congressit, who had lost his re election attempt was not going to vote for Impeachment.

Several small groups, apparently, made personal call on his office to inform his local secretary if he didn’t vote for Impeachment, he might consider moving to avoid us after he was out of congress. Because a lot of people wanted to discuss on a one to one basis, to why he didn’t vote for Impeachment.

He voted for Impeachment, and later we found out that he didn’t even live here. A true Rino in his actions, not what he lied to us about.

I never heard of the “Ellen Rometsch” strategy before.

It’s eerily like what Odinga did to Roberts to secure OdingaCare.

The Left has the resources of a nation-state at their fingertips. Not for a second do I think they won’t use it.

The web site that impeached a President!

Don’t let GOPe revisionists claim impeachment hurt Republicans. They have been saying such things of late.

No, Al Gore would have been President starting the new millennium without this impeachment. Think what a disaster that would have been.

Free Republic saved the world.

Anyone who signed up to FR after impeachment is and always be a nOob.

Nothing is impossible to a willing mind and a brave heart.

We are Americans.

We come from people who crossed oceans to do the impossible, create the uncreatable, dream the undreamable, and make a New World for millions of their descendants to live free and rise or fall on their own merits, and not by anyone else’s leave.

Never forget who we are, who are people were, and why we’re here.

Although I wasn’t here at FR during that time period, I just want to say God bless all of the Freepers involved in shining the light on Slick Willie, and keeping it alive, lest we ever forget how corrupt that admin was.

Let’s ensure there’s no replay with Clinton Release 2.0.

And God bless all Freepers in general... I’m honored and privileged to be your Countryman.

If I recall correctly from a book review of Chinagate written by a congressman, Clinton took contributions from the Chinese military and allowed missile guidance technology to be sold to China. That alone should have put him in prison.

A few months ago there was a story posted that the Clinton foundation was keeping a lot of the contribution money and it was not being spent on the actual charity services. I guess that story disappeared quickly. More criminal behavior.

As I read it, Lott basically derailed the process in the senate. Reading all of those rape allegations on television would likely have forced some of the dems to break ranks.

Yes — good point. I remember that now. However I don’t think it would made much difference in the final outcome Perhaps a few more dems would have broken ranks. The rape charges were detailed in the media and it ended up as a “he said / she said”.

Was at the March for Justice in October, 1998.

Lurked at the time and finally joined on12/30/98.

Was proud to stand with you and the DC Freepers at the
White House some Saturdays in 1999 and 2000.

Fifteen years later, I would do it all over again.

We did the right thing, the noble thing, and the just thing.

Since 12/19/98, our political class has failed us and betrayed us continually.

Merry Christmas to you and yours.

Wonderful post, NF. I was just explaining the same things to my kids today.

We've got to teach the kids the truth about their exceptional country, and instill an appreciation and love for it within them. More than anything else we do here, that is perhaps the most important.

Not to sound contrary but it must be noted that BillyBob is more popular than ever....worldwide...and is worth tens of millions of dollars (if not more).In his mind and in the mind of many,many,*many* people here and abroad *he* emerged victorious when all the dust had settled.

I'm not arguing that he shouldn't have been impeached...rather,I'm pointing out how far we've fallen as a nation....and as a civilized world.

Yep. It's the fastest and surest way to turn a country from it's founding principles.

It's one of the chief reasons that my wife and I home school our kids. I don't want Big Brother shaping their minds. That's my job, and I will teach them in the ways and history of our forefathers as I see fit.

They're already a whole lot better for it.

Too bad doing the right thing only backfired on Republicans because the economy was good and the media was on Willie’s side 1000%.

“David P. Schippers, who was Chief Investigative Counsel for the Clinton impeachment, reveals in his book Sell-Out that Republican leaders, from the get-go, had no intention of holding a proper impeachment trial or of convicting Bill Clinton. It was all a charade.”

A message from top Clinton boot-licker Peter King:


Wow, has it really been 15 years already? My fellow RINOs who fought impeachment, like Houghton, Morella, Shays, Chafee, Jeffords, Snowe, and Specter are long gone and rightfully scorned as liberal traitors for years, but I'm STILL in power by convincing numerous gullible conservatives that I was "one of the good guys". Bwahahaha, suckers!

There were only about 10,000 Freepers then why can't over 200,000 Freepers today get the illegal alien communist in the white hut today impeached.

even if the Senate won't convict Impeachment in the House would stop obama in his tracks until the November elections.

So we impeached Clinton and he served out his term. He is now even more revered than ever; dems go to guy when they are in crisis, media darling, sage on the stage, obamacare supporter, rain maker and golf buddy of Obama. Most people don't even know he was impeached and the RINOS have no stomach to impeach Obama since it will yield the same results. Do we want to impeach our second black president?
Don't get me wrong, I'm all for impeachment, as long as they frog march him out of the white hut, in silver bracelets, right in to a jail cell.

“...home school...”

Good to hear that, buddy... need more of it.

I did the parochial school route with mine, and wherever I saw something that seemed a little too left-leaning, I intervened.

Even to the point where I complained about a poster one of the English teachers had up in the classroom, with “Famous American Authors” on it... Maya Angelou... Walt Whitman... Langston Hughes... all good lefties.

When I told the teacher about it, she really had no idea who these people were, and when I schooled her on it, she removed it. It was removed from other classrooms too afterwards.

That’s how entrenched this crap is. Even some of the teachers don’t know who these folks are.

Thanks for posting this, kristinn—sure brings back memories, although I’m not sure I attended the first one. I think I made it to the rest we held in DC.

Wonder what ever happened to the freepers named here—normally a lurker for instance. I loved her infectious laugh—any gathering we held was enlivened by her attendance.

Of course, the really big friend missing today is Doctor Raoul. God rest his soul. I really can’t quite believe he’s gone. I have so many wonderful memories of freeping with him——especially standing in front of the WH yelling the “Cops’ Cheer” at the top of our lungs.

So many old time freepers have dropped out, like Clinton’s a Liar and others that come to mind......but we have many new freepers who have taken up the cause.

Is it time yet to head to DC again? I’ve been thinking that for a long time—but which outrage would we freep against? There are so many from which to choose, unfortunately.

I never heard what happened, and every time I think of him, I feel his loss again.

He never talked much about himself—was sort of a mysterious person. He always mumbled something about having some sort of secret job that he wasn’t able to talk about—

He and my husband became friends at an event we attended in DC—and he had promised us he would drive down to see us in TX this fall.............of course, that never happened, but for a long time, we looked forward to it!
