Skip to comments.My Battle With the Clintons: I wrote a tough book on the Clinton family. Here's what happened next.

when I started to write Clinton, Inc: The Audacious Rebuilding of a Political Machine, I knew the reaction to expect. I was well aware that the former (and perhaps future) first family and its massive retinue of loyalty enforcers, professional defamers and assorted gadflies would rue my intent to examine the real Clintonsespecially in my search for the real Chelsea Clinton, who until now has been a media-protected nonperson despite her aggressive public activities on her familys behalf and despite raking in hundreds of thousands of dollars from her role as former first daughter.
MSNBCs David Shuster learned this the hard way when he was suspended from the network for saying, But doesnt it seem like Chelseas sort of being pimped out in some weird sort of way? in a live TV hit on how the former first daughter was being used by her mothers 2008 campaign. The Clintons hit the roof over the single relatively banal comment, as I report in my book, and lobbied the head of parent company GE to get Shuster off the air.
I also had a feeling that some of the sources I spoke to, for and not-for attribution, including alleged Clinton mistresses whove stayed out of the press and remain loyal to Bill, would alert the Clintons to what I was doing and help them prepare a counterattack.
But even if I hadnt known it, many, many people in Washington, on the left and right, popped up to warn me of what to expect from the Clinton PR team. Other authorslegitimate ones with serious pedigreeswhod written about the Clintons said they were threatened and verbally attacked. Of course, nearly everyone in Washington has seen the much-vaunted Clinton PR machine in action. Its very predictable. Heres how it works:

Just make sure you stay out of Fort Marcy Park.
The only thing that didn’t ring true in this article was when the author described Hillary as “intensely likeable.”
It actually comes across that way. It must be Bill's mind control.
RE: The Clintons hit the roof over the single relatively banal comment, as I report in my book, and lobbied the head of parent company GE to get Shuster off the air.
Now we know that it isn’t a good thing to use the word “Pimp” and “Clinton” in the same sentence...
Like they say....”flak seems to get heaviest right over the target”.
I’m looking forward to a close up pix of “the Energizer.”
Consider yourself lucky if you live through this, Mr. Halper.
I despise the Clintons as much as the next guy but if I don't think that's a banal comment at all. If the networks left their slime buckets at home they might actually have to report on a Republican proposal or two sometimes.
RE: Consider yourself lucky if you live through this, Mr. Halper.
Well.... Ed Klein is still alive.
... so far, it's early yet.
I predict that the new 1000 lb. gorilla will be Martin O’Malley. He will become the next Democrat nominee, IMO. Bob
Right. We’re still in the first quarter.
This is pure Stalinism. The Clintons learned their lessons well.
RE: I predict that the new 1000 lb. gorilla will be Martin OMalley.
This New Yorker predicts Andrew Cuomo for 2016...
unbelievably my family has also had our lives personally impacted by the Clinton machine...when she was a senator.
thankfully we are now out of the situation that allowed Hllary to influence our family. Crazy stuff, but they take care of their own.
>>While I was still reporting on my book, James Carvilles office called, seemingly out of the blue, to grill me on whom Id already spoken to. I obviously refused to indulge the questioner.<<
That when he should have rep-lied with names such as Chuck Schumer, Barbara Boxer, Nancy Pelosi, Harry Reid, .................
I talked to a retired Arkansas State Trooper and asked him about the Clinton murders. His exact words were “Everything you’ve ever heard about Bill Clinton is true.”
Given his open war on guns, The only state west of NY and south of N.J. that Cuomo would carry is California.
This New Yorker predicts Andrew Cuomo for 2016...
I agree. I’ve said that for about a year.
Andrew Cuomo is one vile creature.
Hitlery is collecting as much money as she can and will drop out and keep as much of the cash as he can get away with. IMO
O'Malley is white, male, and ostensibly straight. He will not be the nominee.
Bubba Krinton could go on national TV and confess to everything bringing mountains of proof, the msm and Marxist party would declare him a saint.
Tick off a Lib, tell them the Clintons are everything Richard Nixon wished he could have been.
The body of vince was driven up a weed overgrown drive and then carried through the woods a hundred yards or less then arranged on the back slope of a gun emplacement at the extreme edge of the park.
Vince was killed elsewhere, probably the White House
If people really want to know why the Dems are in the majority and the GOP sucks needs to read David Horowitz’s Art of Political War and then use it to analyze the behaviors of bothe the Clinton and Obama political machines.
These people approach politics as bloodsport. The GOP doesn’t have, has never had, anyone or thing close to it. Even Lee Atwater was more of a happy partisan warrior; these folks aim not only to win but also win as ugly and as brutally as possible to deter potential future challengers.
For 22 years, the Clintons have been a pox on the body politic of this country.
Yep, that’s Daniel Halper’s book alright.
I concur therefore David Letterman should be immediately fired for even worse statements regarding Palin’s daughter. Of course we all know THAT won’t happen....after all it isn’t a sainted one being attacked then.
Stalinism...my first thought, too.
Roger Morris's "Partners in Power" IIRC intended to disprove all the charges that the Democrat Clintons are corrupt. Morris had written biographies of Richard Nixon, Henry Kissinger and Alexander Haig and again IIRC was wildly popular for the less than favorable information about those three Republicans.
Funny thing happened on the way to the end of writing "Partners in Power" -- Mr. Morris found out that not only were the Clintons corrupt they were even worse than that. No invites from the media for Mr. Morris. There was only invective.
I bought the book for a $1.00 at a book store trying to dispose of books "nice" people just would not buy.

Should also google the images. Here is a link to one of them from April 2008.
Cuomo has been too shrill, IMO. The nominee must pretend that he is NOT a nut like Al Sharpton, even though all potential Democrats really are.
This is a gooooood article...
While it might have initially appeared that the deputy counsel to the president of the United States was taking a nap in a parklying neatly face-up on a steep embankment with his feet pointing downVincent W. Foster Jr. was not napping. He was dead. Dressed in expensive trousers and a white dress shirt, less than eight miles from the White House, he was lying dead. A single gun-shot wound to the head. Dead. Some of the blood on Fosters face was still wet, but starting to dry. A trail of blood flowed upwards from his nose to above his ear. The man who found his body said there was no gun, but after he left to notify police, a gun appeared in Fosters hand. It was July 20, 1993. President William Jefferson Clintons Arkansas childhood friend, and First Lady Hillary Clintons Rose Law Firm partner, and White House confidante was dead.”
So, why hasn’t the Stalinista outed Obama? Who is behind them both?
The only thing that didnt ring true in this article was when the author described Hillary as intensely likeable.
Sure she is, if you are the sort who likes being flogged with a bullwhip. She is almost as likable as a six foot cottonmouth moccasin.
What’s up with Politico? I thought they were all dems, all the times. Lately they’ve been coming down pretty hard on some dems.
Back in 2007 I posted on FR that Bill wanted to be the only Clinton President and would sabotage Hillary’s chances in his own subtle way.
I stand by that statement through 2016.
