2001's most unlikely discoveries: Gary Aldrich whacks Washington Post's comments on Clinton ^ | Thursday, December 27, 2001 | Gary Aldrich

Posted on 12/26/2001 11:43:03 PM PST by JohnHuang2

It was only a matter of time before a liberal publication would attempt to defend Bill Clinton's abysmal record on fighting terrorism. Since Sept. 11, the evidence of incompetence and lost opportunities has been stacked high. Early attempts to lay the blame at the feet of the FBI and CIA have failed, as a furious population surmised that behind all activities of highly funded intelligence agencies is that indispensable element most call "leadership."

So I was not surprised to see back-to-back front-page articles in The Washington Post recently, which could only have been conceived and executed after significant arm-twisting by remnants of the disgraced Clinton administration. What was especially galling was the label the Post chose to describe eight years of impotent "activity" masquerading as response to real terrorist threats against our nation. The Post called Clinton's fiddling, "Clinton's War on Terrorism."

When I first read the headline containing this outrage, I laughed. After that, I just got angry. There was no "Clinton War on Terrorism"! But, there were many "wars" waged by our former commander in chief. There was the war on decency. There was the war on our military, when Clinton and his cronies and croni-ettes attempted to feminize our armed forces, and coerce our warriors into accepting both women and men with conflicting gender preferences.

Then, there were the wars on drug companies, and doctors, and "Big Tobacco" and "Microsoft." And, who will ever forget the enormous resources brought to bear against the "Radical Right," in the wake of the Republican take-over of Congress in 1994? Crazy Timothy McVeigh gave Clinton and the Democratic Party a perfect excuse to investigate the heck out of a "Vast Right Wing" which Clinton described as the biggest danger to American national security ever.

Years later, what does the U.S. government have to show for the tremendous investment of resources used to identify, catalogue and maintain FBI files on thousands of law-abiding, decent Americans who simply loved their Constitution and Bill of Rights? Exactly nothing! Clinton perceived a "right-wing threat" for exactly what it was – a true national movement to oust a disgusting, failed and reckless leader from national office.

The "right" was a political threat of the highest order, and Bill Clinton understood the gravity of that threat. Meanwhile, he banished the CIA director from the White House, and made it clear he had no real interest in foreign affairs. The joke going around the White House at the time when a nut crashed a plane onto the South Lawn, was that the pilot was CIA Director Woolsey, trying to get an appointment with the president.

And while hundreds, maybe thousands of FBI agents were used to probe the activities of "home-grown terrorists" from the "right," how many real terrorists sent by Osama bin Laden were able to set up deadly cells for future attacks?

Informed citizens know all of this, and more, and will not be fooled by the attempts made by the Washington Post, or any other of Clinton's liberal media friends to airbrush history.

Richard Cohen, a particularly obnoxious lefty who writes on a regular basis for the Post, recently claimed the reason Clinton could not wage an effective war against Osama bin Laden was because he was too busy waging war with his wife, with Kenneth Starr, Bob Barr, Paula Jones, Linda Tripp, Monica Lewinsky, Cathleen Wiley, the "Vast Right Wing Conspiracy," and ... well, you get the picture.

The reason, according to Cohen, that we were attacked on Sept. 11, is because decent Americans complained loudly about Bill Clinton's disgusting conduct performed on our White House Oval Office rug with a young woman – a government employee – barely capable of making good decisions about activities most Americans would find shameful and beneath contempt. Clinton's attempts to hide this conduct caused one of the most damaging insults to the minds of our nation's youth, as they were forced to watch and listen to a president attempt to explain what sex isn't, and what it "is."

Our nation was also humiliated to learn that a president would lie under oath to save his own political skin. Even the hated Nixon never did that.

And Cohen contends that all of this is "our" fault, not Clinton's.

In the spirit of the holiday season, I've prepared a list of the "Ten Most Unlikely Discoveries" of the past year. I would invite readers of this column to prepare their own examples, then forward them to the Internet address provided below. After a thorough review by a qualified panel of – well, me – the readers' "Best Ten" unlikely discoveries will be posted in a future column. Maybe by then, the Washington Post will give up attempts to rewrite history, but I doubt that very much.

Gary Aldrich's list of "The Most Unlikely Discoveries of 2001," in no particular order:

  1. PETA's 1st Annual Pig Roast.

  2. O.J.'s arrest of "the real killer."

  3. Haitian go-go economy.

  4. American Trial Lawyers Fairness & Ethics Club.

  5. Hollywood's 50th wedding anniversary dance.

  6. Abortion Associations' Celebration of Life Festival.

  7. Eco-Terrorists' Log-Cutting Contest.

  8. Hillary's Marriage Counseling clinics.

  9. Washington Post's unbiased, factual news reporting.

  10. Bill Clinton's "War On Terrorism."

Your mention of Pat Schroeder reminds me to ask...

Where's that lyingass little squirt,Bruce Lindsey?

Where's John Podesta?

Sydney Blumenthal
Beth Nolan
Jack Quinn
Beth Dozoretz

Since the Emergency Legacy Rehab Meeting, Paul Begala has been on television defending Clinton again, Bill Richardson too. Richard Cohen wrote his column, and my cousin in Arkansas says the Ark Dem Gaz ran a front page defense of Clinton on Sunday. Hard core defenders, but where's everyone else? And what are they doing behind the scenes?

Clinton must be one miserable human being, in the depths of despair. He can't turn on the tv without more and more bad news. According to CNN/Gallop, Clinton's getting more blame for the recession than President Bush or the congress. President Bush has the highest numbers ever recorded, and for the longest period of time. And worst of all, Clinton's failures are openly discussed, all over the media.

Clinton's presidency ends just as conservative voices in the media are becoming more and more prominent. Clinton has got to be tearing his hair out! Fetal position anyone? FOXNews reaches more cities every week, the internet grows, talk radio persists... Clinton can't control any of it.

And did you hear Rudy Guiliani explain President Bush's successes? He said "President Bush is the same in private as he is in public. He's not a phoney, not concerned about image, and he doesn't do polls to figure out what his policy will be." It was such a total body slam to Clinton!!

11) Ex-president William Jefferson Blythe Clinton appears on Larry Kink Live to apologize to the nation, and especially to the 3000+ families who suffered in NYC and DC, for miserably failing to do the 'peoples business' while he was in power. He admits to 'causing peoples pain' rather than feeling it. He further declares that his presidency was a total failure and that he should have remained in Dogpatch.

The Sink Emperor's legacy:

The country was burned while he diddled.

NOTHING can hide that essential truth no matter how much his little cronies try to shout their chorus of orchestrated lies. And the public knows it too.

This emperor never had any clothes and no amount of layering of the truth can change that simple truth.

Let them bleat their silly and absurd assertions. It only makes them look as foolish and corrupt as their fallen hero.

Clinton is a small and diminished man. That's his true and lasting legacy.

(And it warms the cockels of my little compassionate conservative heart!)

Consider them as rats lurking behind the wainscoating of our culture, inhabiting lefty foundations and committees.

They are out there for sure.

We have to be diligent about our 'pest control" efforts.

Whilst basking in the glow of the present decent and law-abiding administration, and feeling the surge of pride and patriotism return to our souls, we must NEVER FORGET the evil we were subjected to, lest we be doomed to repeat it in some future hell. NEVER FORGET, NEVER FORGET, NEVER FORGET!

I plan to hammer the clintons and their sleazy little pack of enablers like a cheap bell for as long as I draw breath.... and into the next world, if at all possible--

I hope you don't end up where they do.

Thanks for looking... I was hoping some would copy the whole thing and retransmit it across the 'net. You cannot read all those stories, links, and lists that tie so many names & players from the clinton era together and not conclude that they were a bunch of criminals who tricked America for 8 sorry years.

"Clinton can't control any of it."

And, he can't control Freepers following him and hounding him....that is, when we can find him.

Gary, I'm ordering another book at WND to get your autograph. Great article.

I know I've never been so humiliated by a US President in my life

Me, too.... and it wasn't just him ( I surely detest him for the knowing smirk on my nieces faces whenever oral sex was mentioned... ) but the whole pack of scurvy, sniveling enablers that he dragged along into America's living room.... recall this?

Markie Post and Linda Bloodworth- jumping on the bed in the Lincoln Bedroom......

Liberal papers are about as popular now as the pet rock.

Gary Aldrich tells it like it is. The liberals hate that.

I wish I could find a good picture of that Markie Post/Linda Bloodworth jumping on the bed scene that I could copy and display prominently in my house for all my Democrat relatives to see. I come from a LONG line of Democrats who just blindly vote a straight ticket, not even bothering to consider who they are voting for. Also, I am fascinated by Gary Aldrichs' writings. Just wish he was more visible. Does he have a regular column or a radio show. It seems he has so much to say and I, for one, would like to hear it.
