Skip to comments.Bill Clinton 'could sabotage' Hillary's run for President as he is 'deeply conflicted'
Posted on 07/23/2014 6:52:43 AM PDT by C19fan
Bill Clinton doesn't want his wife to win the U.S. presidency, according to sources cited in an explosive new book about the $100 million conglomerate that the Clintons have become since they left the White House. The former president is 'deeply conflicted' about the idea, writes Daniel Halper in 'Clinton Inc.: The Audacious Rebuilding of a Political Machine,' a well-sourced and easy-reading book released Tuesday. A former senior adviser to President Clinton told Halper that if Mrs. Clinton, the presumptive Democratic favorite, should become president, 'Clinton's f***ed.'

Not so much Bill’s sabotage but with the huge Clinton foundation war chest it can be Hillary who decides it will be more enjoyable and easier on her health to run this foundation than to be president. Which is a younger mans game
can't even imagine it, let alone type the words.
"Bill, take your frickin' hand off my ***."
"Hillary, the dumb voters like it when we look lovey dovey."
I don't like Bill Clinton at all, but I can see why he would not want to go through all this again and then have to be in the media spotlight all over again. Plus he has a new girlfriend.
White trash, both of them.
Yes, and apparently the new girlfriend is quite the dish.
I can see where he would be very conflicted.
On one hand, he probably really wants to be in the center of power again, flying on AF-One.
On the other hand, since their “marriage” is a sham anyway (more of an alliance really), there is no guarantee she will let him call any of the shots. Once she is POTUS, she may just freeze him out. There is also the matter of his legacy. He probably worries that if she gets in, she will really screw things up. Lastly, he probably still feels superior to her since he was POTUS and she wasn’t. If she is elected, that is gone forever.
Bill did spill the beans about Chelsea not being his not to long ago.
Really? I think she looks like both Hillary and him.
Whats' more, running after two terms of a mistake-prone blundering black president is a Sisyphian challenge.
Mainly b/c the Clintons are relying heavily on "white privilege" to get back into office. The Clintons' have benefitted from, and are climbing back into office, using privileges far beyond those of the "community of color" to whom they plan to appeal.
"White privilege" denotes the array of advantages the Clintons have cultivated over years in public office. The gold-plated, endless perks of "white privilege" include:
<><> their personal massive wealth in the $2 billion range....
<><> ownership of multiple homes in posh enclaves....
<><> the chain of high public offices they've held....
<><> privileged friends in high places....
<><> global connections....
<><> constant affirmations of their own worth....
<><> greater social status...
<><> the expansive freedoms wealth and connections provide...
<><> unlimited access to the press to speak freely.....
<><> their memoirs made millions....
<><> Dec 2000 book deal $8 million; 2014 book deal $14 mill....
<><> three tax-exempt Clinton family foundations worth hundreds of millions....
<><> Clinton foundation "endowment" skyrockets to $200 million overnight....
<><> Hillary's $200,000 speeches.......
<><> Bill's tax-paid cushy pensions/benefits....
<><> tax-paid Clinton Library (Hollywood honey Sultan of Brunei a donor).....
<><> Chelsea's paid-for $10 million uber-condo.
2016 Hillary was relying on the "income equality" bugaboo to hoist herself into office......as good a definition of "white privilege" as any.
The Clintons strategy is to label others as "different" while presenting themselves as "normal." The Clinton "normal" is couple billion dollars laying around without having a real job.
The Never-Enough Clintons had planned to run a populist campaign, critical of the Wall Street types....that's after the world was informed that speaker Hillary was pocketing $200,000 a throw from Goldman Sachs.....and other corporate giants.
WRT Hillary's dead broke comment, Bill Clinton said recently the criticism was fabricated and shows you how desperately, sadly we are dependent on a new level of political gossip every week.
Hah---Bill's whining confirms what we already know---Hillary's calculated "dead broke" lie is haunting her candidacy.
BACKSTORY Hillary calculatedly dropped the "dead broke" comment on ABC-News' Diane Sawyer, saying "how tough life was" (hoping to gain the voters' sympathy): "We came out of the White House not only dead broke, but in debt. We had no money when we got there, and we struggled to, you know, piece together the resources for mortgages, for houses, for Chelseas education. You know, it was not easy."
REALITY CHECK The greedy, mega-wealthy Clintons have money pouring in from everywhere without lifting a finger...said to be worth couple BILLION dollars.
Never-enough Bill/Hillary look to cash in w/ another go-round in the White House. The Clintons owe bigtime......money is pouring into their three tax-exempt foundations......and these donors expect payback.
IMO, i don’t believe he tanked, I just don’t think he put a lot of effort into it in the beginning. They figured she would just be a walk in for the nomination. After South Carolina, it became personal for him. It’s always about him. This time around I think he will tank because he doesn’t want to be in the shadows. His recent feeble attempt to explain away her financial gaffes was telling. Very weak and lackluster effort. I bet he heard plenty about it afterwards.
The taint of 'loser' will be the last collective memory of the family by the country - and with donors in places like the UAE it will matter. Bill Clinton knows this. He also knows his wife's most important ‘qualification’ for office was her marriage to him.
From that perspective - Bill's right. Hillary should NOT run.
these two are criminal scum.... reflective of the moral decay and heroes of the parasite class and libtards....two political whores cheaply bought... they deserve one another...
He may be a first, but he will never be a "gentleman" in my mind.
Here's just one of the endless examples: the Clintons cupidity is well-documented---shows Clinton and the Democrats took illegal campaign money from groups and individuals tied directly to the Chinese Peoples Republican Army. It is therefore not surprising that In January 1998 Clinton went against the advice of then-Secretary of State Warren Christopher and Pentagon experts by lifting long-standing restrictions against the export of American satellites to China for launch on Chinese rockets.
Not only did then-pres Clinton move control over such decisions from the more security-focused State Department to the Commerce Department, but he intervened in a Justice Department investigation of Loral Space & Communications, retroactively enabling Loral to sell critical missile technology to the Chinese.
Interestingly enough, Clintons decision was made at the request of Loral CEO Bernard Schwartz, whose earlier $1.3 million campaign donation made him the single biggest contributor to the Democratic election effort.
The result? Democrats got money from satellite companies and from Chinese communists; China got supercomputors, advanced production equipment and missile technology; Loral got its satellites launched at bargain basement prices . . . and the transfer of sensitive missile technology gave China [for the first time] the capability of depositing bombs on American cities.
Incidentally, Loral ultimately failed to benefit from this permanent injury to Americas security interests: in July 2003, the company filed for bankruptcy protection, and in order to raise cash was forced to sell its most profitable business a fleet of communications satellites orbiting over North America.
WAKE UP-CALL The Clintons have received zillions from the Chi/Coms---we all assumed it was going to their three tax-exempt foundations. Now here's another angle (think money-laundering, and kickbacks).
The Harry Reid connection to the tax-exempt "Clinton Global Initiative" foundation needs to be investigated.
PUT ON YOUR TINFOIL HATS TO CONNECT THE DOTS:
(1) Harry Reid's son Rory is in business w/ the Chi/Coms on a multi-billion dollar solar energy project; Cliven Bundy and his land are standing in the way.
(2) Reports say Bill Clinton recently went to China to panhandle for his tax-exempt "Clinton Global Initiative" foundation.
(3) The "Clinton Global Initiative" (NOT KNOWN for giving out grants)---gave Harry Reid's granddaughter a grant for a Brooklyn, NY theatre she runs (what is a Brooklyn theatre's connection to "global initiatives?")
(4) A Nevada energy company also gave Reid's granddaughter's theatre group a grant.
"Money laundering" comes to mind. Could the Chinese be financing the Reid's solar project through donations to theClinton Foundations....which is then laundered to Reid's granddaughter?
REFERENCE----HARRY REID IS LIVID THAT HIS GRAND-DAUGHTER HAS BEEN OUTED AS A RECIPIENT OF LAUNDERED CAMPAIGN CASH---Reid lashed out at reporters, saying, My granddaughter has been the target of harassing phone calls, strangers tracking her down, knocking on her door and negative, unwanted attention on the Internet. This has gone too far and it needs to stop now, Reid said. I deeply regret any role I had in creating this situation but now, as a grandparent, I say enough is enough.
Besides the "jewelry company" financed by her grandfather, Ryan Elisabeth Reid runs the Sprat Theater Company, a small theater in Brooklyn, which is also coming under scrutiny. According to Sprats Theatre Company Web site, it has received grants/contributions from:
<><> the Clinton Global Initiative (connected to global terrorism via Muslim Brotherhood employee),
<><> two major Las Vegas foundations:
Caesars Foundation, and the NV Energy Foundation.
NOTE NV Energy Foundation---is a non-profit division of NV Energy (a public utility). The NV Energy utility is a subsidiary of MidAmerican Energy Holdings Company which took over in 2013....and is now owned by a Warren Buffet unit.
BTW, here's Harry w/ his grand-daughter....the one who got $31,000 in laundered campaign funds for her "jewelry company" and grants from Clinton and Nevada energy foundations.
Reid and granddaughter Ryan Elisabeth Reid.
The quote from the article which says it all:
Friends of Bill say in the book that the former president with the wandering eye ‘dreaded’ the idea of going back to the White House in 2017 because he would be ‘trapped’ there, leashed, without room for his libido to run or any meaningful say in government policy.
He would also find his wings clipped literally losing his ability to jet-set and entertain celebrities nonstop in exotic locales between $750,000 speaking engagements.
This is subterfuge.................
She get a free bowl of soup with that hat?
This purveys a perspective totally opposite of the understanding of years of “the Clintons”.
It was understood for many years IT would be Bill, THEN Hill in the WH, but Bill allegedly blew the bridge to that future, and ended up with Obama as the “Party” couldn’t trust either of them to put their interests first.
It was the Clinton’s bank account first, THEN the party’s interests is what appeared to be the priority, thus when it came time for Hill’s coronation, the party backed Obama the “yes man”.
That’s how we saw the story of the Clinton’s for many years, thus find it difficult to buy that Bill would not want to be where he intended to be albeit later in life with Hillary in the WH.
I never thought he was a good looking man, but sitting next to her in this picture makes him comparatively stunning!
LOL——gotta give it to her for having the guts to wear the abomination.
Come to think of it that is probably true. No love children have sprung up from any of his affairs. Birth Control is never 100% affective.
Not in a million years.
first I’ve heard this ... chapter and verse ?
Before you scoff, they had John Edwards completely right.
Along with the rest of us!
sure looks like lewinsky
Come on, DNA would be a waste of money, that girl is pure Webb Hubble.
I would say their memoirs made millions for the Clintons, for the publishers, not so much.
not scoffin’ ... off to go read ... thanx
The Enquirer found John-boy Edwards squeeze, this one shouldn't be that hard to photograph now that they have drones.
403 - forbidden
The word “gentleman” is used too indiscriminately imo.
Er....I see what you mean.
At times during Hillary’s 2008 campaign, Bill turned up and seemed “off message”, if that’s the right term. He railed against the media pushing Obama, and “fairy tales” being told about Obama, about playing race cards, about being shut out of caucuses in Nevada unfairly. He seemed to go off on his own during Hillary’s campaign, and was not always helpful to Hillary by his actions.
Are you at work? I’ll send it in Freep Mail.
“Before you scoff, they had John Edwards completely right.”
Which makes their record, what, 1 for 10,000,000?
His, or hers?
I think they used to refer to that state-of-mind as 'Horny'.
You know, you have a point.
Hillary HAS to run, doesn’t she?
She is obsessed with money more than any other earthly matter, has collected gazillions from around the world ever since they formed the “Foundation” and is indebted, promised to run and guaranteed to buy victory, to then represent foreign global interests and US big money from the presidency.
That looks dangerously close to being a critical mass of sleaze.
Well I am not hearing any howling denials. Chelsea is an adult and must have already known. DNA does not matter. Clinton gave her, his name and raised her. So she is his daughter. Hilliary on the other hand....

There's no hiding from it.......!
So, ol’ Horndog Clinton has been boinking women all his life while only firing blanks, and the consequences are merely inconsequential.
To many, not a bad way to live.
OTOH, boinking Hillary the Flying Buttress is something not to be thought about. That’d be like boinking a beanbag chair. Yuk!
