The plot to 'gut' Hillary Clinton: dark arts and cheap journalism
The Week (UK) ^ | Charles Laurence

Posted on 03/22/2014 6:40:14 AM PDT by Opinionatedtoday

HERE we go. The guns of the Republicans’ ‘dark arts’ department are sounding in the opening barrage against Hillary Clinton’s still-to-be-launched 2016 presidential campaign.

This week’s National Enquirer, the supermarket tabloid, announces that a cabal of right-wing plutocrats has assembled a war chest of $500 million to “gut Hillary” at any price...

One of these eight 'secrets' just might have legs, however, particularly for a new generation of voters too young to have paid attention in the 1990s. The sad death of Vince Foster, Arkansas lawyer, old friend of the Clintons and rumoured one-time lover of Hillary’s, has never been fully explained.

He was found dead in a Washington park after apparently shooting himself in the head. Was he murdered? No fingerprints were found on the nearby gun, and no bullet was recovered, suggesting he had been dumped in the park after dying elsewhere. If it was suicide, why? If he was murdered, was it at the behest of the Clintons? If so,why?

The snoops of the dark arts are now said to be tracking, or even to have scored, two crucial letters “missing” from Foster's White House office safe after his death. One, contents unknown, was to the then Attorney General, Janet Reno.

The only named source in the Enquirer’s article is Marinka Peschmann, a ghost-writer who had a bestseller with the Hollywood producer Robert Evans’s memoir The Kid Stays in the Picture, later turned into a movie.

Peschmann is now a “freelance investigative journalist” who has written two anti-Hillary books, The Whistleblower: How the Clinton White House Stayed in Power to Reemerge in Power and Following Orders: The Death of Vince Foster, Clinton White House Lawyer. It is on Peschmann's website that the 'Ready Hillary for Prison' buttons and bumper stickers are for sale.

The plutocrats WANT Hillary to win. She’s one of their own after all.

I used to work alongside a young woman named Tammy. One day Tammy showed up to work a bit late, acting very distressed. "What's the matter?" I asked.

"Oh, I got stopped by a damned cop for speeding. The bastard was only trying to make his quota."

"How fast were you going?" I inquired.

"Eighty in a fifty zone," she replied.

"Tammy, dear," I said, "If I were a cop, you're just the type of driver I'd want to make my quota."

Who is the Dem hiding? No one heard of Obama before the neat, articulate MULATTO spoke along with the other Dem candidates.

I thought that the Enquirerer was run by Clintonistas?

It used to be where they’d create “back fires” ( I think that’s the term) in order to get ahead of damaging stories.

How is a newspaper owned and run by friends of the Clinton’s a part of the Republican “dark arts” machine?

“Even if the anti-Hillary cabal identified by the Enquirer does exist, I don’t think Hillary and crew are that concerned...they may already be a day late and a billion dollars or so short. I’ve been hearing that the super PAC seeking Hillary’s nomination is expected to start the campaign with about a billion-seven in their war chest. If so, that $500 million cabal will just be a speed bump on Hillary’s path to POTUS. If so I hope the cabal has a little extra space in their decommissioned missile silo escape site. I may need an eight-year or more vacation. All I can say to the alleged anti-Hillary cabal is to please call me … soon.”

The guns of the Republicans’ ‘dark arts’ department

It was NOT the Republicans who did in Hillary's last trip to her coronation. It was a strong faction in the Democratic Party that did her in. That same faction has been and continued to be anti-Clinton (includes BJ). If Hillary does pick up steam, look for that faction to find and field another sudden-star candidate to challenge her -- in the Democratic primaries. [And it won't be Biden.]

When we have a world that is willing to bow to whatever yack is coming over their boob tubes at the time, we’re doomed.

But people keep their eyes glued to boob tubes because they forgot to keep their eyes on God.

We lost this country when the Ten Commandments were removed from the town square. These laws were there to remind us that there is a higher power than man. Since our nation put man’s law first, we are now subject to whims and we will flit and flurry with them. Society has no firm foundation, no ‘code that you can live by’.
This isn’t about Right and Left. It is about Right and Wrong.

Who cares whether they were in the town square.

What was in people’s hearts mattered infinitely more. In fact removing outward but hypocritical signs may have moved us closer to truth. Now we know we are in lousy shape and there is no fig leaf to hide it.

If it’s true that polls show people who support Hillary Clinton (14 percent) because they want to vote for a woman (Democrats and feminists all, I’m guessing) and (11 percent) because of her stellar work as Sec. of State (Dem-fems who don’t want to think of themselves as people who would vote for a woman just because she’s a woman)it looks like the best way to fight her off as a candidate is to show that (1) she’s not really a woman — could be hard —and (2)she did a lousy job as Sec. of State — much much easier.

Kabuki theater, most likely a way to deal with all of Hillary’s baggage on their terms so it is “old news” when the actual campaign gets going.

According to some in the democrat party, Romney didn't pay his taxes.

I can't remember where I heard that, but if the democrats say it, it MUST be true, right?

Didn't the Clintons have a practice of “immunizing” themselves from bad press by leaking it themselves. My guess is that this is something Hillary's slavs are conducting. Even if I was a RINO republican, Hillary would not scare me because she is not a very effective candidate. The more she is seen, the more people dislike her, which aside from his RINO credentials, would be the exact same problem the giant, empty bluster bag Christie would have.

I would be very surprised if the Republican Party raised the Vince Foster issue. As for the $500 million dollar claim, can they substantiate that? Who is the money supposedly coming from?

Poor Vince was so distraught he tied his hands behind his back and shot himself in the head 3 times.

Hillary is a vile woman. How many lives have been destroyed and lost because of this woman. Benghazi is only one small “speedbump” (to use Obama’s referel of the murder of a US ambassador)in a long trail of destruction in the wake of this woman. She accomplished absolutely nothing as Sec. of State. Iran is nuking up, China is annexing Japaneses and Phillippine soil, Crimea is gone. She spent her entire political carreer on the coat tails of a rapist womanizing husband and defending his lying.

I don't see any dark conspiracy here. The facts are plain and speak for themselves; the facts themselves are what will cause Hillary to fail. No cabal needed!

'Course, the last place I look for facts is the Enquirer. Or HuffPo. Or WND. Or the Daily Mail. I tend not to pay any attention to tabloids.
