Frankenstein, The Sequel: Hollywood edits out own culpability for 9/11 by editing out clinton's

Frankenstein, The Sequel:

Hollywood--premier clinton creator--edits out its own culpability for 9/11 by editing out clinton's culpability for 9/11

Will its own vulnerability to terrorism (and worse) finally impel LA-LA LAND to reject "through the looking-glass for real" clinton ineptitude and depravity?

 

Columbia Pictures' "Black Hawk Down," the holiday action adventure movie about the 1993 Somalia debacle that cost 18 U.S. soldiers their lives, was set to explicity blame ex-President Clinton for the 9/11 terrorist attacks before the film's director and producers decided to soft-peddle the connection.

In mid-November, before the decision to tone down the Clinton angle, the film was previewed for a handful journalists.

Before its final edit "Black Hawk's" closing crawl highlighted a series of events following the Somalia mission, including Clinton's humiliating troop withdrawal from the country, the humanitarian disasters in Rwanda, Bosnia and Kosovo and, finally, the terrorist attacks of Sept. 11.

"With what happened in Mogadishu, with the way that all came down, you end up with the terrorism we see today," the film's producer Joe Roth told the New York Times on Wednesday. "It's so obvious now, eight years later."

Roth said his partner Jerry Bruckheimer and "Black Hawk's" director Ridley Scott agreed with him that "we would be remiss in not making this connection to the general audience."

But ultimately the filmakers, along with Mark Bowden, author of the best-selling book upon which the movie is based, decided that blaming Clinton explicitly would be "unnecessary and too distracting."'

Black Hawk Down' Was Set to Blame Clinton for 9/11

Q ERTY6 REALITY CHECK!

To his astonishment the handshake was declined. "You are not fit to be president of the United States," said Shughart Senior. "The blame for my son' s death rests with the White House and with you. You are not fit to command."

As Riefenstahl told it, editing-to-perfection was crucial....By editing out a shot of Hitler wiping his nose and including instead "more interesting expressions," by eliminating the human, Riefenstahl eliminated the inhuman.

Leni Riefenstahl, the film genius who outmaneuvered propaganda minister, Joseph Goebbels to chronicle Hitler's 1934 Nuremberg rallies in perhaps the most notorious documentary ever filmed, Triumph of the Will, symbolizes the naïve actress and director who is induced to deal with devils -- Nazi-pantalooned then. . . nasty, pantless (or nasty, pantsuited) now . . .
 
After the war, Riefenstahl excused her effort as pure documentary -- watch for Streisand, Spielberg, Geffen et al. to do the same one day -- yet she compiled one section, Hitler's motorcade to Munich, from several different events and shot the closeups of Nazi leaders at the podium in a staged studio sequence.
 
As Riefenstahl told it, editing-to-perfection was crucial. She insisted that the finished quality of Triumph of Will came from her editing, not from any imposition of "posed shots" or choreography on her part. With her innovative editing techniques, Riefenstahl deliberately and selectively aestheticized Hitler and the Congress' proceedings. By editing out a shot of Hitler wiping his nose and including instead "more interesting expressions," by eliminating the human, Riefenstahl eliminated the inhuman.
 
The only difference today, in this era of ubiquitous cameras, continuous news and the shameless auteur-tyrant, is that the useful-idiot Washington Press Corps, spun by and on the Hollywood-Arkansas Axis, edits out the clintons' inhumanity (and ineptitude) in real time. . .

Not Joe Klein's Primary Colors. And not Jack Stanton.
bill clinton is straight out of
Stanley Kubrick's A CLOCKWORK ORANGE.
 
clinton is Alex,
one of the few truly amoral characters in either film or literature;
not quite as Kubrick (or Burgess) had imagined him, however,
but rumpled, wrinkled, paunchy, edematous,
stripped of the youth-excuse
after 30 additional, pathetic, recidivistic years
of marauding, stomping, raping, gangbanging, deceiving and destroying.
 
Like A CLOCKWORK ORANGE, the story of bill clinton
is the story about a society that has lost its capacity for moral choice.
But unlike in the less fabulous and no more ironic fable,
clinton is not mere nascent symbol but nihilistic agent.
 
clinton, like Alex, is the leader of the gang, the "droogies."
Eerily prefigured by the rocking, crooked phallus,
clinton's a conscienceless sadist
who thrills at risk and gratuitous destruction,
whose sexual and non-sexual impotence
is at the root of his obsession with "the old inout."
 
When Alex kills a woman during a rape, Alex is sent to prison.
When clinton rapes women, girls, his country and God knows what else. . .
and kills? --- check out those fourscore-plus deaths, please!
And don't forget the wag-the-dog, desperately-seeking-a-legacy bombings,
or the cold-blooded Ricky Ray Rector execution---
not clinton but society is imprisoned,
imprisoned in clinton's
besmirched, semen-stained, feckless presidency.
 
A risible and repulsive result;
yet not even the punch line.
 
While Alex is conditioned in prison with aversion therapy,
transmuted into a moral robot who becomes nauseated
by the mere thought of sex and violence,
bill clinton and his Thought Police,
in a perverse reverse aversion,
have conditioned society's collective brain
into not mere acquiescence but twisted admiration.
 
In the end,
if clinton's arrogant, ruthless, reckless nature is restored to him,
it seems the joke will be on all of us,
for it will be a victory for infinite victimhood and irresponsibility,
for seduction, for violence, for nihilism, for anarchy.
 
We will have set apart clinton as the hero
by making his victims less human than he;
we will have allowed clinton to carefully estrange us from his victims
so that we can enjoy the rapes and the beatings
as much as clinton himself does.
 

 
 
Clinton's failure to grasp the opportunity to unravel increasingly organized extremists, coupled with Berger's assessments of their potential to directly threaten the U.S., represents one of the most serious foreign policy failures in American history

Clinton Let Bin Laden Slip Away and Metastasize

 

 

Bill Clinton may not be the worst president America has had, but surely he is the worst person to be president.*

---GEORGE WILL, Sleaze, the sequel

 

Had George Will written Sleaze, the sequel (the "sequel" is, of course, hillary) after 9-11-01, I suspect that he would have had to forgo the above conceit, as the doubt expressed in the setup phrase was, from that day forward, no longer operational.

Indeed, assessing the clinton presidency an abject failure is not inconsistent with commentary coming from the left, most recently the LA Times: "Clinton Let Bin Laden Slip Away and Metastasize."

When the clintons left office, I predicted that the country would eventually learn--sadly, the hard way--that this depraved, self-absorbed and inept pair had placed America (and the world) in mortal danger. But I was thinking years, not months.

It is very significant that hillary clinton didn't deny clinton culpability for the terrorism. (Meet the Press, 12-09-01), notwithstanding tired tactics (if you can't pass the buck, spread the blame) and chronic self-exclusion. ("I knew nuttin'.")

If leftist pandering keeps the disenfranchized down in perpetuity, clinton pandering,("it's the economy, stupid"), kept the middle and upper classes wilfully ignorant for eight years.

And ironically, both results (leftist social policy and the clinton economy) are equally illusory, fraudulent. It is becoming increasingly clear that clinton assiduously avoided essential actions that would have negatively impacted the economy--the ultimate source of his continued power--actions like, say, going after the terrorists.

It is critically important that hillary clinton fail in her grasp for power; read Peggy Noonan's little book, 'The Case Against Hillary Clinton' and Barbara Olson's two books; it is critical that the West de-clintonize, but that will be automatic once it is understood that the clintons risked civilization itself in order to gain and retain power.

It shouldn't take books, however, to see that a leader is a dangerous, self-absorbed sicko. People should be able to figure that out for themselves. The electorate must be taught to think, to reason. It must be able to spot spin, especially in this age of the electronic demagogue.

I am not hopeful. As Bertrand Russell noted, "Most people would sooner die than think; in fact, they do so. "

(SHE knew nuttin')

*George Will continues: There is reason to believe that he is a rapist ("You better get some ice on that," Juanita Broaddrick says he told her concerning her bit lip), and that he bombed a country to distract attention from legal difficulties arising from his glandular life, and that. ... Furthermore, the bargain that he and his wife call a marriage refutes the axiom that opposites attract. Rather, she, as much as he, perhaps even more so, incarnates Clintonism

CLINTON-WAS-AN-UTTER-FAILURE Containment Team Scheme Fails in its 1st Effort
 
Bill O'Reilly Laughs Lanny Davis Off Stage
 
Calls "It's the economy, stupid" an Utter Absurdity Post-9/11
by Mia T

NEW YORK, Dec 21--Diehard clinton lackey, Lanny Davis tested the CLINTON-WAS-AN-UTTER-FAILURE Containment Team Scheme in what the clintons likely regard their most difficult venue, "The O'Reilly Factor." The top-rated Fox News show demonstrated once again that its motto, "the no spin zone," is no spin.

The eponymous host swiftly stopped the spin (and the spin). O'Reilly debunked all the shameless clinton-directed revisionism spewed by Davis, exposing the absurdity of the CLINTON-WAS-AN-UTTER-FAILURE Containment Team Scheme even as he underscored clinton's immutable legacy of depravity and failure.

Dead Hero's Father Tears into Clinton

HEADLINE: Dead hero's father tears into Clinton
BYLINE: James Adams

 
 
It was the moment President Bill Clinton wanted to restore his tattered
reputation with the military before his departure for the D-Day celebrations
in Europe this week, James Adams reports.
 
He had just presented posthumous Congressional Medals of Honour, America's
highest military decoration, to the widows of two soldiers for valour in
Somalia. After inviting the families for a moment of quiet reflection in the
Oval Office, the president approached Herbert Shughart, the father of one of
the two soldiers, and offered his hand.
 
To his astonishment the handshake was declined. ''You are not fit to be
president of the United States,'' said Shughart Senior. ''The blame for my
son' s death rests with the White House and with you. You are not fit to
command.''
 
The president reeled and the unprecedented onslaught continued for some
minutes. According to witnesses it was a ''highly charged emotional moment''
which resulted in Clinton trying to explain to Shughart,Sr. why the events
of that day last October were not his fault.
 
Shughart and his colleague, both sergeants, were killed trying to rescue
fellow rangers from a vicious fire-fight in which 18 died and 75 were
wounded. A later Pentagon investigation revealed that the troops had been
refused the ri ght equipment and there was no political or military plan to
justify the Americ an presence in Somalia.
 
Although the president has tried to escape the blame, he is largely credited
with the failure of the whole American effort to bring peace to Somalia.
According to witnesses to the Oval Office scene, the Shughart family
remained unconvinced by the president's arguments.
 
''The medal doesn't help anything, other than that we are grateful that
Randy will be remembered in such an honourable way,'' said Lois Shughart,
the soldier's mother.

hillary's head revisited:

hillary clinton's brain (such as it is) II
 by Mia T

The smartest woman in the world would relish "the raucous give and take of American democracy, " as Charles Kuralt once put it.

hillary clinton, by contrast, subsists on cozy clintonoid interviews of the Colmes kind...

In her new book, Political Fictions, Joan Didion indicts the fakery of access journalism practiced by vacant politicos like the clintons, whom she sees as "purveyors of fables of their own making, or worse, fables conceived by political strategists with designs on votes, not news."

(More Didion: "No one who ever passed through an American public high school could have watched William Jefferson Clinton running for office in 1992 and failed to recognize the familiar predatory sexuality of the provincial adolescent.")

President [Bush] can use the surplus Mr. Clinton left behind to pay for many of the nation's needs in this time of crisis

Assuming there ever was a surplus (there wasn't), since Congress is Constitutionally mandated to do yearly budgets there is no surplus from year to year. It all goes back into the Treasury and is used (SS payback, theft, interest payment, etc).

Feel free to correct me if I'm wrong. Please show your work.

Clinton reviewing inaugural plans

by Helen Thomas, 29-NOV-1996 14:29

The president, still suffering from a raspy voice, and ordered by his doctor to rest his vocal chords, carried a briefcase as he strolled to the waiting helicopter to return to Camp David. He wore a leather jacket and was followed by an aide carrying a huge box of inaugural papers.

WASHINGTON, Nov. 29 (UPI) -- President Clinton briefly interrupted his Thanksgiving holiday weekend at Camp David Friday with a quick trip to the White House to gather data he wants to study in planning his second inauguration and then returned to the mountaintop retreat.

The president returned to the Executive Mansion with his wife Hillary and daughter Chelsea, 16. Along with him was Hollywood producer Harry Thomasson, who with his wife Linda Bloodworth Thomasson, a prominent sitcom writer, spent Thanksgiving Day with the Clinton clan at the mountaintop retreat.

Clinton conferred with Thomasson in the Oval Office on his return and discussed preliminary plans for the inaugural on Jan. 20, including choosing a poem he will have read at his second swearing in as president.

The Thomassons played a prominent role in writing the script for his first inauguration in 1993.

The president, still suffering from a raspy voice, and ordered by his doctor to rest his vocal chords, carried a briefcase as he strolled to the waiting helicopter to return to Camp David. He wore a leather jacket and was followed by an aide carrying a huge box of inaugural papers.

But before plunging into further study, Clinton arranged to take time out to play golf with Hillary's brothers at a course near Camp David.

The first lady and Chelsea did not return to the presidential hideaway with him. Mrs. Clinton had the Christmas decoration of the White House to supervise as it got underway Friday and Chelsea had to attend a rehearsal for her performance in the Washington Ballet's annual Christmas performance of "The Nutcracker Suite."

In addition, an aide said Mrs. Clinton had to prepare for her trip to Bolivia Monday afternoon where she will attend the annual meeting of the first ladies of the Americas. Before she departs, she will host a press preview of the White House Christmas decorations.

The president arranged to deliver his weekly Saturday radio address from Camp David. White House press secretary Mike McCurry said the subject would be: "Thanksgiving."

Clinton plans to return to the White House on Sunday, and will face a busy week ahead as he makes important decisions on the make up of his next national security team.

Clinton took a binder of recommendations with him to Camp David on possible Cabinet appointments prepared by his transition team. Most of the interest centered on who he would pick to succeed Secretary of State Warren Christopher who is leaving the Cabinet.

The president wants to have his chief diplomatic and military advisers on deck before Christmas, and the entire new Cabinet selected by Inauguration Day.

On the social side, next week the President and Mrs. Clinton will begin a series of nightly Christmas parties leading up to the holiday. The Clintons, in keeping with tradition, will spend Christmas in the White House.

15. Mr. Grafeld told me, referring to Judicial Watch's allegations that Commerce Department trade mission seats were sold in exchange for campaign contributions, that "(Judicial Watch Chairman and General Counsel) Klayman is right on target" but that he believes that the trade mission issues were "only the tip of the iceberg -- that the really big money went towards Presidential access." Mr. Grafeld indicated to me that he believes that Ms. Moss was asking for political contributions in exchange for seats on Commerce Department trade missions, likely at the direction of Hillary Rodham Clinton, but that documents showing this illegal activity had "left the building." In fact, there were effectively no security procedures at the Commerce Department to ensure that sensitive and secret documents and/or any documents which might evidence criminal activity stayed in the building. The purported letters referenced by Mr. Grafeld and Nolanda Hill could easily have "left the building" absent sufficient procedures to secure them.

For some background to this analysis, here is the original AP wire story concerning the mysterious death of a Commerce Department worker that occured over Thanksgiving weekend.

Police Investigating Death at Commerce Department

November 29, 1996 9.58 am EST (1458 GMT)

WASHINGTON (AP) -- Police were investigating the death of a woman whose body was found today in an office at the Commerce Department.

Anne Luzzatto, press secretary for Commerce Secretary Mickey Kantor, said the woman's body was found this morning by a Commerce Department employee, who notified security personnel in the building. "It is my understanding that someone found the body in an office on the fourth floor,'' Luzzatto said.

She said that District of Columbia police were conducting an investigation but that she had no details on a cause of death. The woman's name was being withheld pending notification of relatives.

Clinton Enjoys A Round Of Golf

5:36 PM (ET) 11/29

HAGERSTOWN, Md. (AP) -- Scaring a pondful of ducks, President Clinton enjoyed an afternoon of golf with family members on Friday after returning briefly to the White House to work on the program of his second inaugural.

Midway through 18 holes, the president splashed two balls into a small lake between the green and the rough, scattering a flotilla ducks.

The ducks settled down and so did the president. After one more errant shot, he landed his ball on the green, drawing applause from club house onlookers at the Black Rock Golf Club.

The president, just returned from a trip to Asia that included a state visit to Australia, wore an Australian-style "Crocodile Dundee" hat, charcoal gray pants and a blue sweatshirt.

It was an all-in-the-family affair. The president's partners included his stepfather, Dick Kelley; his brother, Roger Clinton; and his two brothers-in-law, Hugh and Tony Rodham.

The president drove his own golf cart.

On Friday morning, Clinton unexpectedly left Camp David in the Catoctin Mountains of western Maryland, where he and his extended family had enjoyed Thanksgiving, to return to the White House.

One purpose for the helicopter ride: The president wanted to give first lady Hillary Rodham Clinton and their daughter, Chelsea, a ride to town to attend a ballet event.

But White House press secretary Mike McCurry said the president also spent time in the Oval Office with television producer Harry Thomason discussing the themes and program of his second inaugural.

"The inaugural committee wants to send the program to the printers as early as possible next week," McCurry said.

Clinton also picked up some volumes of poetry not available to him at Camp David, McCurry said, adding that the president wants to review them before announcing the name of the poet expected to be included in the Jan. 20 ceremony at the Capitol.

When Clinton was inaugurated four years ago, poet Maya Angelou read from her work.

Missy's Analysis of Situation

Death at Commerce

The partially nude body of Barbara Alice Wise, 48, was found at 7:45 AM in her LOCKED fourth floor office at the Commerce Department, Friday morning, Nov. 29, 1996.

Ms. Wise worked in Commerce's INTERNATIONAL TRADE ADMINISTRATION, known as ITA.

The DOA showed up in the same department that Huang and Yee were both associated with when they worked at Commerce. Interesting.

What's almost as interesting is the fact that this Death at Commerce has NOT been widely reported. I have waited for nearly a week now, but nada, nothing, zilch, zip.

So...Maybe they didn't catch it?

Lets look at this story as it played out in the press. The stories, in their full glory are attached:

9:58 AM Friday The story breaks: A dead body, female, is found on the fourth floor of Commerce, by a colleague. Colleague, un-named. The District of Columbia Police are conducting the investigation. No name [pending notification of relatives], no details.

12:01 Friday Reuters: Body found in deceased's office, where the International Trade Administration has offices. Cause of death not yet determined. Police say the city's medical examiner would perform an autopsy to determine the cause and manner of her death. Case being investigated by Homicide branch.

Woman last seen alive Wednesday at 4 PM. Commerce building was closed on Thursday for Thanksgiving.

1:23 PM Friday AP reports the body was found at 7:45 AM that morning. The woman, still unidentified, had worked for Commerce for 14 years, in the department's International Trade Administration.

"She specialized in trade development, working in the unit that provided analysis of various industries." No details on the cause of death. "Police also would immediately release few details."

1:39 PM Friday AP reports President Clinton flew to the White House today, from Camp David where he'd spent Thanksgiving. Clinton had already returned [by 1:39 PM] to western Maryland for a round of golf. He spent less than two hours at WH, one them with Harry Thomasson.

Why the unexpected, unscheduled, sudden trip to the White House? Why the meeting with Thomasson...and the rush to meet with him?

[Clinton] spent an hour in the Oval Office with television producer Harry Thomasson discussing the themes and program of his second inaugural, said White House press secretary Mike McCurry.

"The inaugural committee wants to send the program to the printers as early as possible next week," McCurry said.

Clinton also picked up some volumes of poetry not available to him at Camp David, McCurry said, adding that the president wants to review them before announcing the name of the poet expected to be included in the Jan. 20 ceremony at the Capitol.

McCurry said the president also wanted to give first lady Hillary Rodham Clinton and their daughter, Chelsea, a ride to town to attend a ballet event.

Completing his less than two-hour stop, Clinton returned to Camp David, also by helicopter.

He was to play golf at a course near Hagerstown, Md., with his stepfather, Dick Kelley, and his wife's two brothers, Hugh and Tony Rodham.

This story...from AP and the WH...infers that Bill came to the WH to meet with Thomasson to finalize some inauguration plans that needed to get to the "printers". We all know that the small fry GO TO THE PRESIDENT, not the other way around. Thomasson would have flown to the prez. Further, the PRESIDENT doesn't run back to the White House to pick up "poetry books". He SENDS people back to pick up poetry books. And we all know what a devoted husband and father Bill is ... wasn't it sweet of him to give Chelsea and Hillary a "lift back to town"? Must have been an early "ballet event"...

Notice the time that BC arrived is not stated, but we do know he was gone by the time this story was reported: 1:39 PM. He was there for 2 hours. That means he was in DC no later than 11:30 AM, possibly earlier.

2:29 PM Friday UPI Report Just in case you didn't buy the above excuses for Bill's sudden appearance at the White House, how about these from UPI excerpts:

1] a quick trip to the White House to gather data he wants to study in planning his second inauguration

2] Mrs. Clinton had the Christmas decoration of the White House to supervise as it got underway Friday and Chelsea had to attend a rehearsal for her performance in the Washington Ballet's annual Christmas performance of "The Nutcracker Suite."

3] In addition, an aide said Mrs. Clinton had to prepare for her trip to Bolivia Monday afternoon where she will attend the annual meeting of the first ladies of the Americas. Before she departs, she will host a press preview of the White House Christmas decorations.

Now the DISINFORMATION/SPIN is starting to become very clear. Not only the lame excuses as to Clinton's sudden quick trip to the White House, but regarding Clinton's visit with Thomasson.

Quickly let me chat about Hillary coming back to oversee the decorating. Gary Aldrich wrote about the 1994 White House Christmas decorating, in his book "Unlimited Access", p. 103. He said he was "surprised" to hear that the First Family was at the White House when the decorating was going on. "They had not gone to Camp David, as was tradition - that way, the decorating could go on undisturbed and they could be surprised when they returned for the great unveiling." Hillary has never taken an interest in decorating the White House before. Did she really take an interest this year? Did Aldrich "make her do it"?

But more importantly, contrary to the AP article above, which inferred that Bill came to the WH to MEET with Thomasson, it turns out Thomasson and Clinton had been together for days:

The president returned to the Executive Mansion with his wife Hillary and daughter Chelsea, 16. Along with him was Hollywood producer Harry Thomasson, who with his wife Linda Bloodworth Thomasson, a prominent sitcom writer, spent Thanksgiving Day with the Clinton clan at the mountaintop retreat.

Clinton conferred with Thomasson in the Oval Office on his return and discussed preliminary plans for the inaugural on Jan. 20, including choosing a poem he will have read at his second swearing in as president.

[end of excerpt]

Thomasson and Bill Did NOT HAVE to meet at the White House. They were together all along. They could have had their meeting at Camp David. If they needed info, they'd have sent a lackey. Clearly, this "meeting" was an EXCUSE for the sudden return to DC. Clearly, the real reason for Clinton's sudden trip to the White House was NOT BEING TOLD.

And there is more weirdness:

"The president... carried a briefcase as he strolled to the waiting helicopter to return to Camp David. He wore a leather jacket and was followed by an aide carrying a huge box of inaugural papers."

Okay. Put on your thinking cap. When have you EVER seen ANY President CARRYING ANYTHING as the get into or out of the Presidential helicopter...? Seriously...WHEN HAVE YOU EVER SEEN A PRESIDENT CARRYING ANYTHING? [I believe it is against security rules for the president to be encumbered in such a fashion. That's why others carry everything.]

5:21 PM Friday [AP]
This is critical!
The AP STILL says: "The name of the 48-year-old woman was being withheld pending notification of relatives."

In itself, this means nothing.

But then you have THIS BOMBSHELL:

"District of Columbia police spokesman J C Stamps said that an autopsy was being performed."

The DOA's relatives have NOT been informed YET the body is already on the table being autopsied.

Not only did the autopsy start BEFORE the relatives had been informed of the DOA's death, but the autopsy started less 10 HOURS after the body was found.

The last time I saw an autopsy done so quickly was in the death of Vincent Foster...and it took tremendous pressure EXERTED BY THE WHITE HOUSE. I have read hundreds of pages of testimony regarding the influence of the White House on getting Foster's autopsy bumped to TOP PRIORITY. I submit to you that only White House pressure could account for the fact that this DOA was autopsied even before her name was publicly released.

Just think common sense. There are a lot of DOA's in Washington DC. There is ALWAYS a back log of bodies to be autopsied. NO DOA gets autopsied in less than 10 hours unless someone decides to bump THIS DOA to the top of the list. WHO? WHY? Were the officers of the crime scene present at the autopsy, per standard procedure? Was the autopsy in progress when whoever attended got there? Was there anyone from the DC Police even present at the autopsy? Who performed the autopsy?

Continuing from the AP story:

District of Columbia police spokesman J C Stamps...did not rule out foul play.

"We are looking into all possibilities," he said.

A local television station, WRC, quoted unidentified police sources as saying that the office where the body was found was locked and the body was partially nude.

Whoa. A dead body, found partially nude, in a locked office, in the same Commerce Department where Yee and Huang once worked, where documents are being requested and subpoenaed left and right, is being autopsied less than 10 hours after it is found, and before the relatives have been notified.

This is getting VERY interesting. Or is it?

5:36 PM Friday
Apparently it's of no interest at all. To Bill Clinton at least.

Now, another excerpt from AP:

Scaring a pondful of ducks, President Clinton enjoyed an afternoon of golf with family members on Friday after returning briefly to the White House to work on the program of his second inaugural.

But Bill was WITH Harry Thomasson at Camp David... they did NOT have to return to the White House to "work on the program of his second inaugural". Horsepuckey.

This story cracks me up...done for no other reason than to publicly show how relaxed and unconcerned the President was that afternoon...even though a dead body had showed up just hours before in a locked room at Commerce's ITA, the same department that Huang and Yee worked in.

Again, from AP:

Midway through 18 holes, the president splashed two balls into a small lake between the green and the rough, scattering a flotilla ducks.

The ducks settled down and so did the president. After one more errant shot, he landed his ball on the green, drawing applause from club house onlookers at the Black Rock Golf Club.

The president... wore an Australian-style "Crocodile Dundee" hat, charcoal gray pants and a blue sweatshirt.

It was an all-in-the-family affair. The president's partners included his stepfather, Dick Kelley; his brother, Roger Clinton; and his two brothers-in-law, Hugh and Tony Rodham.

The president drove his own golf cart.

Just a beautiful picture, isn't it? The close knit- family, golfing, laughing; relaxed, the ducks on wing... So serene.

Except for that 800 lb. gorilla, aka, the DOA, back at Huang's Department at Commerce.

This story has absolutely no value. Why was it written? Why was it posted to the wire service? This is news?

I submit to you it was written to record that Clinton showed no signs of stress about that 800 lb. gorilla. The rest is just re-hash of what was put out hours before.

This story was COVER.

1:30 AM Saturday Morning
Nearly six hours has elapsed since AP's last story on the DOA.

In the wee hours of the morning AP announces the name of the Commerce DOA, one Barbara Alice Wise, 48, of Gambrills, Md.

It is also noted that "the unit where she worked provided analysis for various industries designed to boost export sales."

Again, from AP:

Sgt. Michael Farish, a homicide investigator with District of Columbia police, said officers have found no signs of foul play and believe that she died of natural causes. But the case continued to be investigated as a homicide, he said.

A preliminary autopsy was unable to determine the cause of death Friday.

The Police say "no signs of foul play", yet she was found partially naked, in a locked office. And the police say she died of "natural causes" even though the autopsy was UNABLE to determine the cause of death.

Humm. Interesting. What natural causes would that be, that an autopsy can't determine?

No, they tell us: the autopsy didn't determine why she died, partially naked, in a locked room. But it was of natural causes, and there were "no signs of foul play." And it would continue to be investigated as a homicide.

Interesting.

My, What's going to happen next?

NOTHING, because THAT WAS THE LAST STORY ON THE DOA AT COMMERCE. [The same story appeared on Prodigy's AP Online with a later timestamp]

To my knowledge, NO NEWS SERVICE HAS DONE A SINGLE STORY ON THIS DEATH SINCE.

In less than 24 hours, this stunning discovery at Commerce, in John Huang's former department is no longer news. This story is DOA.

Comments:

Once they got it on the wires that the body had been autopsied, and it was of natural causes, even with an indeterminate autopsy, well...that's the end of that.

The press says: "Let's talk about Hillary's Press tour of the WH "Nutcracker" decorating theme...."

Why, there weren't even any follow-up stories on Hillary's trip to Bolivia, alluded to in the UPI report at 14:29 hours on Friday.

I would think the First Lady's trip to Bolivia for unknown reasons would be more newsworthy than what Bill wore when he played golf, and that he drove his own damn golf cart. Wouldn't you?

It would appear, at the very least, Ms. Wise worked under Mr. Huang, where he served as the Ass't Deputy Secretary in that section. What was Alice Wise's position under John Huang? How much did they interface in their work? Same questions regarding Ms Yee and Ms. Wise.

Did Wise focus on Asian or European affairs? What did Ms. Wise know? Did she travel on any Commerce trade trips? Did she attend the Nov. 1994 junket to Jakarta? Did Ms. Wise ever interface with Lippo/Riady or their business interests while working at Commerce?

Did Ms. Wise ever receive a subpoena for testimony on information she may have regarding Ron Brown? From either Ron Brown's now-defunct IC, the Justice Dept. who took over the Brown investigation after Brown's death, or Starr? Or any congressional committee? Or Judicial Watch?

What are the answers to the who/what/where/why of Ms. Wise? And why is NO ONE ASKING?

WHY IS THE MEDIA SILENT ABOUT THIS WOMAN'S DEATH?

It also appears quite clear to me that the REAL reason for Bill's sudden and unscheduled visit to the White House is not being shared. Spin, spin, disinformation. Obviously NOT for the reasons the White House put out. National Business that suddenly needed attending to? Then the rest of his staff would have been there.

Were they at the White House to "deal with" the dead body that just showed up at Commerce? If NOT, then why DID Bill Clinton REALLY make this unscheduled urgent trip to the White House...and bring Thomasson along? If Clinton needed a "meeting" as an excuse, you would think he'd pick a better cover than Thomasson whose mere name raises eyebrows...Better that Clinton meet with Mother Theresa. Was Thomasson just "handy" to use as an excuse? But Thomasson was WITH Bill Clinton at Camp David. There was no need to fly to the White House for the meeting.

BUT for the fact that at 7:45 AM that very morning a dead body showed up in the very Commerce Department section, ITA, where Huang and Yee worked when they served there, there is no legitimate reason why Bill suddenly flew into DC on Friday morning.

If the DOA at Commerce was the real reason, and her death relates to the Lippo Affair, consider this:

Most of Bill's contacts and conduits to the Riady's have been exposed. Is Thomasson NOW ACTING as the conduit for information flow between the Riady's and the White House? Did Bill go to the White House to deal with events, and to "gather data" that relates to Lippo/Riady/Huang, and this woman's death? Were these documents what Bill was personally carrying to the helicopter? Are these documents what in the box of "papers" the aide was carrying? Were they removing incriminating documents to Camp David to make them inaccessible to any WH subpoena? If I were issuing a subpoena at this point, I'd surely include any papers at Camp David. You think this is far fetched? Remember that not too long ago, Clinton's COUNSEL, Jack Quinn tried this same ruse to circumvent a WH subpoena by sending the subpoenaed documents TO THE FBI, so Quinn could say, "there are no such documents IN the White House." This is NOT far-fetched with this Clinton White House.

Regarding the query: IS Thomasson now acting as a conduit between the Riady's and the Clintons? I don't know if I sent you this or not, but I have been wondering about Thomasson's company in the Travelgate affair TRM. We know that Huang and Thomasson spoke often on the phone...but we don't know what they talked about. The only role we know for Thomasson is Travelgate, so it naturally brings up the next question: Were Thomasson and Huang talking about Travelgate? If so, what does Huang have to do with it? Well, what if TRM doesn't stand for T=Thomasson, R=Richland M=Martens.

What if the R in TRM really stands for RIADY? Do we know for certain that this Richland dude was THE "R"? Do we know for certain he used his own money? Further, notice this:

From the Arkansas Democrat Gazette [date uncertain, but posted on BB 11/27/96] "Clinton's election focused world's eye on Indonesia deals" by ANDREA HARTER:

[Mark] Grobmyer has said he does not represent himself to the Indonesians as having special access to the White House, but he did gain a rare audience with Suharto in 1993, Arkansas Industrial Development Commission records show. An April 23, 1993, memo written by Harrington to Tucker says, "Grobmyer recently visited Indonesia by invitation of Mr. Mochtar Riady. ... While there, he met with President Suharto." The memo says that a visit to Arkansas by Jakarta's governor was "to reciprocate Mark's visit."

Grobmyer said Monday that his visit with Suharto had no connection to state officials or to Clinton. "I was on the international committee for Little Rock with the (Little Rock) Chamber of Commerce, and there was some talk of a commuter airline facility out at the airport. I thought they would be interested in knowing about it. But I never represented the president."

Many fascinating things about this statement! First of all: Why would Riady and Suharto be interested in a "commuter airline facility" out at the airport? They'd be interested if they had a stake in a related business...perhaps TRM? Perhaps even World Wide Travel?

Secondly, if I am not mistaken, Judge David Hale was a BIG dog in the Chamber of Commerce in Little Rock. If I am not mistaken he even held a NATIONAL post in the parent organization. This meeting with Grobmyer and Riady and Suharto took place in April 1993...before Hale's troubles became known. Why doesn't someone ASK David Hale what HE KNOWS about the Lippo connections to ArkAsia?

I have never believed all the reasons thrown out as to the "why" of Travelgate. Why would the WH/Clinton's expose themselves so recklessly, and urgently to get TRM into the Travel office? The urgency is what doesn't fit. And I never bought that it was the money Thomasson could make if he had the office. Thomasson already has money, and how much would one make arranging press trips?

But what if Travelgate is in reality "Lippogate", only in disguise. What if the Riady's and Lippo play a role in TRM, World Wide Travel? Ah, then the possible reasons for the WH actions make a little more sense. It even makes on reconsider the statement that Foster died over Travelgate.

I have tremendous RESPECT for the disinformation that comes out of this White House. They are BRILLIANT. [NOT REALLY, MISSY...] Yet, on this Friday morning, they really blew it big-time. I would suggest to you that they were SO PANICKED that they COULDN'T THINK STRAIGHT. Hence, their terrible job of creating "cover stories" for the urgent, and unexpected stopover at the White House.

Terry Gilliam, eh? Is it the mise-en-scene constructon? Or the exploitation of modernity (technology) in an effort to demonstrate oppression by the exploitation of modernity?

Because the Framers did not anticipate the demagogic efficiency of the electronic bully pulpit, they ruled out the possibility of an MTV mis-leader (and impeachment-thwarter!) like clinton. In Federalist No. 64, John Jay said: "There is reason to presume" the president would fall only to those "who have become the most distinguished by their abilities and virtue." He imagined that the electorate would not "be deceived by those brilliant appearances of genius and patriotism which, like transient meteors, sometimes mislead as well as dazzle."

(If the clinton debacle teaches us anything, it is this: If we are to retain our democracy in this age of the electronic demagogue, we must recalibrate the constitutional balance of power.)

The only way they can win is to convince people that we're space aliens.

--bill clinton

 
 
June 9, 1999
 
Peggy Noonan's excellent piece in yesterday's Wall Street Journal is really the story of the death of democracy. At its core it is the description of the human double helix gone terribly awry, of a denatured protein grotesquely twisted, of two mutant, tangled strands of DNA, the basest imaginable of base pairs linked permanently, as firmly as guanine to cytosine, bill inexorably to hillary and conversely, doing what they do best, and doing it relentlessly.
 
Killing.
Killing insidiously.
Killing as they pose and pander and feel our pain.
 
My only complaint is with Peggy Noonan's title.
The Mad Boomer, doesn't begin to capture candidate clinton considered separately or even taken as the self-anointed "twofer," permanently conjoined at that cavity conspicuously empty except for ego, that place where brain and soul and guts and heart normally reside.
 
This is not to say that she -- that they -- are not both quite mad and of that self-indulgent, arrogantly, ignorantly solipsistic age sandwiched flatly between yesterday's innocence and tomorrow's insouciance. Rather, it is that their madness and their boomerism don't even begin to explain their noxious influence: The cloying, internally inconsistent clinton calculus. The unspoken clinton threats. They permeate the atmosphere like a coiling miasma, choking off all freedom.
 
Even in New York.
Especially in New York.
When she wrote "The New Colossus," Emma Lazarus hardly had in mind this pair of mutant, deadly, twisted aliens.
 
So forget Arkansas-Illinois carpetbaggery and standard issue muckraking. The clintons are aliens of quite another sort. They are extrinsic, not of this world. They are inhuman. They are dehumanizing.
 
You may recall that the first act of this story of two degenerates maintained by iterating idiots, farce of farce ad infinitum, was generated quite by accident by iterated AlGoreRhythm, who, it should be noted, is now himself the object of iterated calculation by said degenerates who want iteration 2004 all for themselves.
 
And thus the odd bit of bloody Gore in Act II: The ugly sight of a corrupt, bottom-heavy hillary self-impaled on the horns of a Treason-Dilemma- masquerading-as-a-Third-Term-Dilemma-masquerading-as-a-Senate-stampede, for example, or bill's recent unsolicited, underwhelming Times interview on the Gore candidacy.
 
Act I was called "The Cook, The Thief, His Wife and Her Lover." Ostensibly the tale of the wife of a bloodthirsty crime boss who finds romance with a bland bookseller between courses at her husband's restaurant, it was in fact the Thyestean and moveable -- yet unmoving -- feast of hillary clinton at her husband's sham restitution. (Note the reciprocity. The sham restitution in Act II is all hillary's.)
 
Food, color coding, sex, murder, torture and cannibalism were the exotic (if mostly horizontal) fare in this beautifully filmed but brutally uncompromising modern memoir which passed as ancient fable about nouveau riche rapacity.
Not for the faint at heart, Purple Hearts or queazy stomachs, this depiction of the gross debasement of America was heavily peppered with irony and dark humor throughout.
 
Although she baked no cookies, didn't do illicit land or cattle deals and stood by no man, hillary clinton starred in the triple role of the Cook, the Thief and his Wife. Her lover was played at once vaporously and in workmanlike fashion by the ghost of Eleanor Roosevelt, with Janet Reno, between her stints rendering intermittent injustice for the Husband, as the reliable stand-in. Sidney Blumenthal was the stand-in for the Cook and Craig Livingstone the stand-in for the Thief. The last-minute addition of Christopher Hitchens as the snitch was a stroke of absolute genius notwithstanding its cerebral accident, its predictable-if-perfect pitch and its facile alliteration.
 
Although Act I had no rating, the new clinton soccer-mom directive will require a photo ID for any viewer without independent proof of illegal alien DNC or DNA sequencing.
 
 
In Act II, rabid anti-clinton voters, roughly 33% of the U.S. populace according to as-yet-unpodded pollsters, become increasingly aware that they are disappearing in droves and being replaced by alien pod replicas which have their physical attributes but lack all anti-clinton affect.
 
If Act I was a thinly veiled allegory about naked clintonism, then Act II is a parable about the plan for world domination by the Establishment, aged hippies in pinstripes all, with their infantile, solipsistic world view amazingly untouched by time.

Q ERTY4 BUMP!

Olson Book's Chilling Warning: Clinton's Terrorist Pardons Sent Signal

Crime/Corruption
Source:
News Max
Published: Oct. 14, 2001 Author: Carl Limbacher and NewsMax.com Staff
Posted on 10/14/01 8:23 PM Pacific by
concerned about politics

In a bone chilling chapter of her new book "The Final Days," late heroine-author Barbara Olson warned that ex-president Bill Clinton's pardons of terrorists who had repeatedly bombed buildings in New York City "send a signal" that the U.S. isn't serious about fighting terrorism.

In words that now seem like a harbinger of her own Sept. 11 death at the hands of the Middle Eastern terrorists, Olson cited example after example of how U.S. officials strenuously warned Clinton that pardoning FALN Puerto Rican separatists who had waged their own bombing jihad on America posed a threat to national security.

In August 1999 Clinton pardoned 16 FALN terrorists without even being asked, in a move that was widely seen as a cynical ploy to win Hispanic votes for his wife's New York senate bid.

The group had planned and executed 130 bombing attacks on New York, Chicago and Washington, D.C. from 1974 to 1983. Miraculously, the FALN managed to kill just six Americans. But hundreds more were seriously wounded.

Law enforcement officials were stunned when Clinton decided to pardon the FALN bombers.

"The FBI's assistant director of national security, Neil Gallagher, said that the people turned loose by Clinton 'are criminals, and they are terrorists, and they represent a threat to the United States,'" Olson wrote.

In a subchapter eerily headlined "Pardons for Terrorists Send a Signal," she reported:

"President Clinton had not bothered to consult with relatives of victims of FALN terrorism. In fact, the survivors of those murdered and those whose lives had otherwise been destroyed by the terrorists were not even informed that their attackers were being released."

Olson continued:

"Deputy Attorney General Eric Holder.... conceded that the nation owed much greater consideration to the victims. And Holder's boss, Janet Reno, explicitly acknowledged that groups aligned with the FALN still posed a threat to national security."

In comments turned gut-wrenching in light of last month's attacks, former Justice Department pardon attorney Margaret Love told the late author that Clinton's terrorist pardons should have set off alarm bells.

"We should have seen a big flashing red light because of the FALN cases.... That was a foreshoadowing of what happened later."

Love was referring to Clinton's January 2001 pardons of drug dealers and international fugitives, not the attacks on the U.S., which no one foresaw. But it's nearly impossible now to read those words as anything but prophesy of the terrorist acts that murdered Olson and nearly 6,000 others last month.

In a moment of now legendary heroism, the late author telephoned her husband, Solicitor General Ted Olson, from American Flight 175 to warn that terrorists had hijacked her plane. Mr. Olson had the terrible task of telling his wife that two planes had slammed into New York's World Trade Center minutes before.

Barbara Olson's phone call was the first warning the government had that Washington, D.C. had come under similar attack.

In comments sure to irk those who argued for eight years that Bill Clinton's private life was nobody else's business, the late author contends that the terrorist pardons were payback for Mrs. Clinton indulging her husband's decades of rampant philandering.

"Hillary had done a lot of heavy lifting for her husband, much of it, such as the various bimbo eruptions, that required her to hold her nose. She had to cover for her husband and lie."

Olson called the FALN pardons Bill Clinton's "first return on her investment."

Though a lively debate has raged ever since Sept. 11 over whether the ex-president did as much as he could to stop Osama bin Laden, the one-time congressional Clinton investigator is the first to raise the FALN pardon question at any length.

Perhaps now Sen. Clinton, who has made herself newly available on the TV talk show circuit since the World Trade Center attacks, will be asked whether she agrees with Olson that her husband's terrorist pardons "sent a signal."

 

 

 

"My client had nothing to do with the low-rent, trailer-park trash politicians who infested our country for the past eight years."

--Michael Rosen, lawyer for Thomas Gambino, son of late Mafia boss Carlo Gambino

New York Post via The Wall Street Journal

(Michael Rosen was understandably eager to distance his client, a convicted loan shark, from the clintons. Another Thomas Gambino reportedly paid $50,000 to roger clinton in an unsuccessful effort to get a pardon for his father, Rosario Gambino.),

It's not easy to play fair against Mr. and Mrs. Clinton, who, in the words of the authors, "operated like a crime family, expecting friends and aides to protect them even against their own best interests." What's amazing, of course, is that's exactly what Clinton friends and aides have always done, from Susan McDougal to Webster Hubbell to flocks of nameless White House special assistants. Even Jim McDougal died just in time to deprive the independent counsel of a key witness against Mrs. Clinton, thus derailing what the authors report to have been her likely indictment for perjury and obstruction related to the Whitewater investigation....     

Reading the tumultuous events of the Lewinsky probe in a comprehensive narrative is unlike attempting to make sense of it in daily doses. Something different comes through the heavy accumulation of detail of, for example, the duplicity of the Justice Department, or the sharklike behavior of the White House. One begins to get a choking sense of the atmosphere of corruption and ruthlessness the Clintons inhabit -- and, worse, have forced the rest of us to inhabit. Taken in one piece, the habitual, even casual abuse of power on display begins to resemble conditions one normally associates with a state of totalitarianism, where such concepts as truth and justice are only paid lip service. In the end, then, it makes you wonder when there will be fresh air again.

-----Crime-family values

"I did not have any involvement in the pardons that were granted or not granted," insisted Sen. KnowNothing, seeming to forget her presence at the New-Square/Oval-Office schmooze that secured pardons for the four Hasidic felons who set up a phony school in Brooklyn to swindle the government out of millions intended for the poor.

Sen. KnowNothing Victim Clinton Holds News Conference
EFFECTIVELY PLEADS 5TH BY INVOKING SPOUSAL PRIVILEGE

by Mia T

 

WASHINGTON- February 22. Sen. KnowNothing Victim Clinton held her premiere press conference today on Capitol Hill, ostensibly to answer questions about the peddling of White House pardons by her brother and her campaign treasurer. Notably absent among the press queries were any about her own involvement not only in those pardons, but in the larger universe of sold pardons--the incipient clinton scandal du jour--Pardongate.

KnowNothing's brother, Hugh Rodham, secured two of the 141 clinton midnight pardons, one for a cocaine kingpin and the other for a snake-oil swindler. Rodham netted a quick $400,000 for his "work" according to various rodhams and clintons and their assorted lawyers. KnowNothing's campaign treasurer, William Cunningham III, himself a law partner of longtime KnowNothing adviser Harold Ickes, helped obtain last-minute pardons for two convicted felons.

LA FAMIGLIA

Displaying a willingness to throw her brother (along with her husband) to the wolves, Sen. Victim Clinton was quick to make a distinction between her big, bad brother's pardon "work" and that of her campaign treasurer, "a fine lawyer and a fine man." The "family" connection of brother Rodham to Clinton made brother Rodham's "work" bad, bad, bad, whereas the campaign treasurer Cunningham's connection to the senator and her campaign coffers made his securing of two pardons in record time a sterling example of highminded, effective public service.

KnowNothing is apparently not the best of thinkers. If the "family" connection makes lobbying for cocaine-kingpin and snake-oil-swindler pardons bad, bad, bad for brother Rodham, then the "family" connection makes lobbying for the Hasidim 4 (see Keating 5) pardons bad, badder, baddest for the wife, First Lady and senator-elect. Moreover, pardons for votes is arguably worse than pardons for dough.

EFFECTIVELY PLEADS 5TH BY INVOKING SPOUSAL PRIVILEGE

KnowNothing specifically declined to answer when asked whether she discussed the pardons with her husband, effectively pleading the 5th. Turning aside questions about the pardon decisions her husband had made, she told reporters they should address those issues with him and his staff. She refused to say whether he should agree to appear voluntarily before congressional committees investigating the pardons. Interestingly, no one asked her whether she would agree to appear voluntarily before those same congressional committees.

I DIDN'T HAVE SEX WITH THAT PARDON

"I did not have any involvement in the pardons that were granted or not granted," insisted Sen. KnowNothing, seeming to forget her presence at the New-Square/Oval-Office schmooze that secured pardons for the four Hasidic felons who set up a phony school in Brooklyn to swindle the government out of millions intended for the poor.

RESURRECTING RUFF

KnowNothing noted that her"best memory" was that she never spoke to her brother or to Mr. Cunningham about the pardons. With variations of "I don't have a memory" and "my best memory, and avoiding the more obvious "I don't recall" and "my best recollection," KnowNothing reprised the Ruffian standard used during the clinton years to commit perjury without penalty.

I GET LETTERS

...or more precisely, envelopes. During her denials of involvement in any of the pardons, KnowNothing made the curious claim: "People handed me envelopes, I passed them on [and never opened a single one. Honest.]"

I AM VICTIM

Reprising the role of victim that enabled her to win a senate seat in spite of record-high personal negatives and public failures, the senator peppered her answers about big, bad Hugh (understanding that the subtext was big, bad Bill) with "saddened" and "disappointed" and "heartbroken" and "shocked."

UTTER CONTEMPT FOR THE PEOPLE

This session today was cut short by a staffer when reporters appeared dissatisfied by Senator KnowNothing's lack of candor.

In the end, this press conference full of poses, poll-tested phrases and prevarication was just another display of the clintons' utter contempt for the people. Bill Clinton committed the same error last Sunday in his shameless, lie-filled New York Times Pardongate Apologia.

The clintons' fundamental error: They are too arrogant and dim-witted to understand that the demagogic process in this fiberoptic age isn't about counting spun heads; it's about not discounting circumambient brains.

Don't forget that these FALN terrorists killed NYPD officers and maimed scores of others. Klinton also pardoned 2 high profile leftist 60's terrorists of the Weathermen who were responsible for the death of at least 3 NYPD officers and set off a bomb in Senator Byrd's office in 1983.

This revisonism about "Klinton hunting terrorists" is so patently false on its face.

We must never forget the mendacity of these two vulgar creatures and their buddies. My fondest wish is to live long enough to see them pay for their crimes.

(Here's the version told my Lt. Col. Tom McKenney, Ret., to whom I've spoken.) Anyone not hating this piece of human garbage really does have something wrong with him.

THE CLINTON CHRONICLES BOOK (Lt. Col. Tom McKenney, Ret.)

Eventually, after Clinton had sat on the paper work for eight weeks, two of the slain soldiers, Master Sergeant Gary Gordon and Sergeant First Class Randall Shughart, were posthumously awarded the Medal of Honor. As usual in such cases, the medals were presented to the next of kin.

Following the May 23 presentation at the White House, the families of the two men were invited in the Oval Office for a private visit with Clinton. Inside the office, the father of Sergeant Shughart refused to shake Clinton's hand, then he looked him in the face and calmly told him that he was responsible for his son's death, that it was for no purpose, that he was not fit to be President, and not fit to be Commander in Chief.

Clinton was visibly shocked, amazed, and momentarily speechless. It is revealing that he was surprised that the man should feel that way. Clinton really doesn't think the way most people do, seeming to lack a sense of personal responsibility. After a brief, awkward silence, Clinton caught his breath. Becoming angry, he turned to the mother of the dead hero and said, "What's he jumping on me for? I didn't kill the kid!"

Yes, he really did say that--to the bereaved mother--he really did! It was an eloquent demonstration of Clinton's insensitivity, and of his absolute inability to understand sacrifice and responsibility.

Do the parents of Sergeant Shughart know about the following, I wonder...

As I said. "the clintons are aliens of quite another sort. They are extrinsic, not of this world. They are inhuman. They are dehumanizing..."

To paraphrase the rapist, himself:
The era of big bubba and W I D E B O D Y is over, McAulliffe notwithstanding. Post-9/11, even the democrats aren't dumb enough to ever run a clinton again...

9/15/98 John Kass

 
Chicago Tribune
 
SURE CLINTON'S TRYST IS A PRIVATE MATTER --JUST LIKE WAR IS
 
September 15, 1998
 
President Clinton's defenders keep making their case that his private life has no bearing on how he does his job.
 
They prattle on about his job approval ratings, which actually track how fat our wallets have become, not whether he can lead this country in a
serious crisis.
 
Maybe you think that Independent Counsel Ken Starr's report is about Clinton, the lothario.
But, if you want to learn something about Clinton as a leader, I refer you to the part about the pizza date with Monica Lewinsky at the White House.
 
That was also the night that Clinton was on the phone with a powerful Alabama Republican congressman, H.L. "Sonny" Callahan. What we didn't know is
what they were talking about.
 
Now it's emerging that they were discussing sending American troops into harm's way in Bosnia--putting our sons and daughters into a dangerous place
that is full of death.
 
The president needed a vote from Callahan--chairman of an appropriations subcommittee that controls billions of dollars in foreign aid--for the
peacekeeping mission, which would augment an international accord being developed in Dayton, Ohio.
 
But while he was on the phone, Clinton was simultaneously occupied.
White House intern Monica Lewinsky was performing oral sex in the Oval Office.
 
Imagine someone receiving those favors while they're talking to you on the phone.
 
Now imagine that the subject you're talking about is literally about life and death.
 
At issue was the fate of American troops. And also the fate of the Balkans, one of the bloodiest killing grounds in the world. What's going on there threatens to spill over into Greece and Turkey, while Russia continues to crumble.
 
I called the White House on Monday on the chance they would dispute the facts as presented by Starr and Callahan on that night, Nov. 17, 1995. And as they have done in the past few days, officials declined.
 
Callahan, meanwhile, is issuing this statement: "I do recall talking to the president during which time he was seeking my assistance for the American mission in Bosnia. But I do not have any recollection of any inappropriate behavior or comments from the president during my conversation. . . .
 
"I had no knowledge that I was sharing the president's time or attention with anyone else."
 
That night, Callahan and a handful of other Republicans voted with the president's side in opposing a move to prevent funds from being spent to send those troops overseas. They lost.
 
Eventually, the Dayton Peace Accords were signed. The president sent thousands and thousands of soldiers to Bosnia. He promised he'd bring them back
by the end of 1996.
 
They're still there.
 
I called Callahan's office on Monday and talked with his chief of staff, Jo Bonner
 
"Sonny has very mixed emotions about this," said Bonner, who added that Callahan was considering a critical public address about Clinton on the House
floor. "He could be voting on this (impeachment) issue, and he's not trying to grandstand.
 
"But the president says it's a personal matter. It became a public matter when he lobbied the congressman, talking about sending men and women overseas, even as he was being entertained by Miss Lewinsky. . . . You could say it is an insult. And worse."
 
A White House official said on background that the president has great respect for those who serve their country overseas.
 
Yeah. Sure. He proved it.
 
According to her grand jury testimony, Lewinsky said that Clinton suggested she bring him some slices of pizza. When she arrived, she was immediately welcomed and ushered inside.
 
But during their loving caress, Clinton had a telephone call. She recalled that the caller was a member of Congress with a nickname.
 
While Clinton was on the telephone with the congressman, she testified that Clinton unzipped himself and she did her duty. She was at the White House
that evening from 9:38 to 10:39 p.m.
 
White House phone records confirm, according to the Starr report, that Clinton had only one telephone conversation with a member of Congress. From 9:53 to 10:14 p.m., he spoke with "Sonny" Callahan.
 
While the House vote took place, diplomats anguished about whether the peace process would collapse. Muslims, Serbs and Croats, along with diplomats from America and other countries huddled in Dayton.
 
The people of the former Yugoslavia were desperate for relief from terror. American soldiers drilled. Their commanders planned, and most likely worried about their troops, as good officers always do.
 
Across this country, the mothers and fathers of soldiers worried and prayed. Some surely lit candles. U.S. representatives with opposing views fought it out with each other.
 
And the commander in chief, the president of the United States, his mouth full of pizza, entertained himself with a groupie in the Oval Office.
 
He is without shame.

I suppose I could argue that the excess crap is a metaphor for the clintons. ;)

Perhaps my latest post, WHOSE DOG WAS WAGGED?, is better matched to your crap tolerance.

Dog-ear this: A clear case of canine distemper on celluloid, this movie is not without a certain irony. It is between the frames, however -- the inadvertent, interstitial whimpering of the wagged lapdogs of LA-LA-land.
