Thriving Clinton legacy
Washington Times ^ | 10/06/02 | Oliver North

Posted on 10/05/2002 11:34:12 PM PDT by kattracks

Edited on 07/12/2004 3:57:38 PM PDT by Jim Robinson. [history]

From his taxpayer-funded exile in Harlem, William "The Zipper" Clinton lives the good life of a deposed monarch. His wife has been installed in the U.S. Senate. His bagman, Terry McAuliffe, runs the Democratic National Committee. And publishers proffer millions for his memoirs chronicling conquests over a multitude of maidens. Hollywood starlets and interns still coo his name. When not vowing to "fight and die" for Israel (something he wouldn't do for America), he hints at playing the Apollo. Meanwhile, the party he left behind must deal with his "no rules" legacy.

Please dear God, let Ollie be right. I wonder if the Clinton era will ever be over Ollie, it appears to be a nightmare from which we can never awaken. It is almost surreal. I am used to former Presidents fading into the sunset, not still campaigning for the office they left behind. The Clinton/Gore national nightmare is not finally over.....yet.

Ollie, that brilliant strategic trick you pulled in the 80s was as much as anything else responsible for the collapse of the Societ Union and I love you for it. However, I think you are a bit optimistic in declaring demise of the Clintons.

The only things that "thrive" around the older male Clinton are the horse-flies that feed on the sheeyut that tends to drool from either mandibular orifice, of which there are at least two near the lower frontal of the skull (for some odd reason, medical records have not been released) .

This occurs constantly, regardless of seasonality as one would normally expect of "sheetflies" in heat accompanying the host in the same condition (currently the word for a male nymphomaniac is still under consideration by Thorndike/Barnhart and Webster's).

This condition of the flies abuzzin' has spread across the country, and the source is being traced to the offices of the Democrat party in the D.C. area and the establishments they frequent...

From what I've seen traveling around the country, the Clinton era is finally over.

Ollie had it exactly right all the way up to the last sentence. But the last sentence is false.

The Democrat lying and cheating machine is still in full force and is evident in the electoral shenanigans that they still are getting away with. And wait til you see the beuats they'll pull off in November! It'll make the Torricelli-Lautenberg scam seem like a little white lie.

Clintonism is alive and well and will be so long as Terry McAuliffe is running the DNC, Tom Daschle is running the Senate or Hillary Clinton has even a glint of political influence. They aren't going away and they aren't going to shut up as long as the fawning media gives them hosannas.

America may *wish* to be rid of them but, like cockroaches, actually killing them off for good will take a great deal more effort.

On this forum we don't call it ignoring the consequences. We call it bringing us together in unity. People who ignore such things are looked upon as unifiers.

"..but guiding principles of the Clinton Era were that truth didn't matter, wealth needn't be earned, and national security wasn't important."

- Worth repeating!

I don't believe the "Clinton Era" is over. The rats still have him out there talking, committing treason against this country. Look who is out there, 'Dermott, Bonior, Thompson and Rahall, they were all over in Iraq giving aid and comfort to the enemy. And look who is out there giving aid and comfort to the enemy, domes1tically; Al "The Goron" Gore, giving negative after negative speech against President George W. Bush; then there is the murderer himself, Ed "The swimma" Kennedy; and then there is the Treasonous/Rapist himself, Bill Clinton committing treason here and abroad against America, once again. He felt so at home in front of the Labour Party, smearing President George W. Bush and magnifying Tony Blair as a far superior leader than George W. Bush.

I agree with nearly every word in this column. All except that 'the Clinton era is over'.

Bill Clinton surrounded himself with like-minded kool aide drinkers since the early days of politics in Arkansas. To unwind that machine of corruption will not be easy and will take a lot of time. I predict that there will still be corrupt Clinton apologists in the media, in Congress, in the courts, and in the democratic party for, at least, another ten more years.

And you just know from some of the morally corrupt happenings recently that the sink emperor is on the phone continuously keeping the pot stirred. The remarks of Clinton's buddy Nelson Mandela and that German minister recently are pure Clintonian

Well ... I somewhat agree with you about the current situation.

However, the internal polls show the dems are in very deep trouble. It's no wonder they are so testy and arrogant to the President.

But ... if the elections on 11-5 are any key - and I think they will be, these elections could send a resounding message to the dems - which is: we don't want your brand of governing anymore. That's why I said the x42 era would be over then. Hillary knows that if the dems don't prevail in November, she hasn't a prayer in 2004. She's lusting for the WH so much, she's certainly got her fingers in all these races which are challenging the dems majority in the Senate. And ... that's why they're getting down and dirty (as with the NJ issue).

I know it may be a longshot, but I don't think its as much of a longshot as it would have been a year ago. Also, Rush mentioned on his show last week that the public has "tuned the dems out". I do tend to agree with his assessment.

As for those dems who went to Iraq - they are being slammed every way possible for their actions, even by other dems. That cannot be a good thing for the dems.

As for x42 shooting off his big mouth about Tony Blair - it's just x42's way of getting back at GW. It's so childish. To me it says, Tony was my (x42) friend before he was yours (GW). Jealousy is all that motivates x42. People see this for what it really is. And ... the public also sees that the President does not speak evil of Clinton - even though there is plenty of ammunition available. The President has only mentioned the "previous administration" a few times.

The x42 influence IS GONE! They still think they have influence, but they don't. It's just the media who tries to keep it going. However, most of us realize that too - so we're not influenced by it.

The media campaign to salvage some semblance of a "legacy" for the klintoons continues.

"60 Minutes" just aired an interview with two klintonistas who served on his national security (LOL!) staff who've written a book detailing how they were kept out of the loop by Freeh's FBI DESPITE klintoon's srenuous efforts to get them in. They stated that Freeh held klintoon "in contempt." (Duuhhhh!)

They claim that because the FBI was INVESTIGATING the klintoons, the klintoons had little leverage in the situation and klintoon's efforts to "get" bin Laden were frustrated as a result.

These klintoon flaks also told Dan Blather that although much of the senior military leadership considered klintoon a good president (GUFFAW!), the lower ranks held him in contempt. (Double Duuhhhh!!)

The only legacy for which the klintoons will be remembered has just been cleared up from around lower Manhattan, just east of Shirly Highway in Arlington, VA and a field in PA!

And it WASN'T because klintoon couldn't get more information from the traditional sources: It was because he was

1. Distracted by the several hundred scandals in which he became entangled;
2. His list of lies grew daily and just keeping up with them consumed 16 hours of his workday; and
3. When he wasn't being deposed, fielding calls from lawyers, leaning on FOBs for the $ to PAY the legal bills, keeping up with his Lie List, he was groping female visitors or getting gum bumps and hummers from willing interns in the Oral Office.

And while Bush ain’t perfect, Hitlery is questioning HIS integrity?

Did I forget anything?

Oh yeah. Forgot THIS:

Clintoon's book will be published by Alfred Knopf Publishing.

“Knopf” is 13th Century German for “ incredibly stupid buyer of other peoples’ garbage.” Knopf is a very old publishing house best known for such early classics as

“How to Enjoy The Inquisition” by Father Torquemada
“You Get My Point?” by Vlad the Impaler
“Guillotine Maintenance and Repair” by Citizen Robespierre

Three of their more recent offerings are “PeeWee Herman’s Movie Guide,” “Gary Condit’s Guide to Picking Up Chicks” and “Compared to Us, Ponzi Was a Freakin’ Choirboy” co-authored by Gary Winnick, Ken Lay and Terry McAuliffe.

All available in a dumpster or landfill near you!

"FBI files were purloined and perused and IRS audits were ordered, while Hillary hissed about a "vast right-wing conspiracy" and Bill blamed conservatives for the Oklahoma City bombing. Meanwhile, real terrorist networks flourished in the United States."

Ollie and the Washington Times are getting closer ping.

That's the heart of it, isn't it? Clinton was so busy chasing women and illegal money that he neglected his duties.

Just like he did in Arkansas.
And our "watchdog" press- and their handmaidens in the entertainment industry- were so busy marvelling over the adroitness of the performance that they didn't bother to look behind the curtain to see that the Emperor had no clothes.

I truly believe that when we look back, the 1990's will be remembered as

"The Decade of Fraud(s)..."

Dot-bombs, Martha Stewart, the clintons, whatever- just one cheat and liar after another...


And the Hell of it is, the information is out there for all to see- all you need is web access and a little time, and you can amass a ton of evidence, stories, people, places, names, and events that utterly Damn the clintons and the hoards of enablers who still worship them... but most people still seem to get their news via soundbites from their stupid TV sets...

If I were going to recommend just one link, it's this one:

-Murder, Inc.--

Wake up, Ollie. The Clinton legacy lives on thanks to W. The Clinton era will stretch out interminably because the party which could have opposed it and put a stop to it suffered from a terminal case of "lack of sack".

Most of the efforts of the GOP seem to be devoted to propping up the democrats so they won't fade from the scene.

It's amazing and appalling, isn't it? All those names, dates, events, and issues tied together... and it's an old post. If the News Jackals of the press would just investigate, they would find much more, for like all things clintonian, what you see there is just the tip of the iceberg...

Sure do enjoy reading Oliver North's work. Wish I could hear him on the radio, too!

I agree...the Clinton era is in remission, but most certainly like a voracious viral infection it could be gathering in strength the closer we get to the next presidential election.
