Just yesterday I saw her on the senate floor speaking against the high salaries of company CEO's.....
Hillary Rodham Clinton, as a New York State Senator, now comes under this fancy "Congressional Retirement and Staffing Plan," which means that even if she never gets reelected, she STILL receives her Congressional salary until she dies.
If Bill outlives her, he then inherits HER salary until HE dies. He is already getting his Presidential salary until he dies. If Hillary outlives Bill, she also gets HIS salary until she dies. Guess who pays for that? WE DO! It's common knowledge that in order for her to establish NY residency, they purchased a million dollar-plus house in upscale Chappaqua, New York. Makes sense. They are entitled to Secret Service protection for life. Still makes sense.
Here is where it becomes interesting. Their mortgage payments hover at around $10,000 per month. BUT, an extra residence HAD to be built within the acreage to house the Secret Service agents.
The Clintons charge the Federal government $10,000 monthly rent for the use of that extra residence, which is just about equal to their mortgage payment. This means that we, the taxpayers, are paying the Clintons' salary, mortgage, transportation, safety and security, as well as the salaries for their 12 man staff - and this is all perfectly legal!
When she runs for President, will you vote for her?

It seems the most expeditious solution for us "regular people" is to make certain the clintons' primary residence is the hoosegow.
I cannot think of a more satisfying way of killing two birds with one stone.

FBI decries freed Puerto Rican prisoners as terrorists

WASHINGTON (AP) A top FBI official told Congress he regards Puerto Rican militants freed in a grant of clemency by President Clinton as "terrorists'' who continue to represent a threat to the United States.
The description by Neil Gallagher, the FBI's assistant director for national security, came Tuesday as President Clinton tried again to explain why he granted clemency, this time in a five-page letter to a Democratic congressman.
Meanwhile, The New York Times reported in today's editions that an unsigned letter prepared for FBI Director Louis J. Freeh stating the FBI was "unequivocally opposed'' to the clemency offer was among thousands of documents sent to Congress.
The Times quoted senior law-enforcement officials as saying Freeh read the letter before it was forward to Congress with other background documents and that the letter accurately reflected his position.
Clinton's own letter said the offer was motivated not by politics, as critics have charged, but out of concern for the "extremely lengthy sentences'' the separatists were serving.
"No form of violence is ever justified as a means of political expression in a democratic society based on the rule of law,'' Clinton wrote. "Our society believes, however, that a punishment should fit a crime.''
Most of those who had their sentences commuted were serving between 35 and 90 years for seditious conspiracy and possession of weapons and explosives.
Clinton wrote the letter to Rep. Henry Waxman, the senior Democrat on the House Government Reform Committee, which was holding a hearing on the clemency Tuesday. Waxman read the letter at the hearing's start.
The explanation from the president came just days after the White House announced it was invoking executive privilege to block Congress from access to documents and high-level testimony pertaining to the clemency. The House panel hearing testimony Tuesday had issued subpoenas to get that information.
Clinton defended that decision in his letter, noting that the granting of clemency is an exclusive power of the president.
"In vesting the pardon power to the president alone, the framers of the Constitution ensured that clemency could be given even in cases that might be unpopular and controversial,'' he wrote.
Gallagher's testimony marked the first time that federal law enforcement officials have testified on the issue. Also on hand were officials from the Justice Department and the Bureau of Prisons. They were barred from answering direct questions about the clemency, because of the White House executive privilege.
Gallagher described the activities of the FALN - the violent organization to which most of those offered clemency belonged. Afterward he was asked by the committee's chairman Rep. Dan Burton, R-Ind, if they should have been freed.
"Do I think they should be out on the street? I think these are criminals and that they are terrorists and that they represent a threat to the United States,'' Gallagher said.
The FBI was one of several law enforcement organizations opposed to the clemency.
Asked about the continuing threat of the FALN and its sister group in Puerto Rico, Los Macheteros, Galllagher ticked off a handful of more recent bombings in Chicago and Puerto Rico believed to have been conducted by the groups.
Clinton's offer of clemency has come under fire from some who have accused him of making it to boost first lady Hillary Rodham Clinton's popularity among New York's 1.3 million Puerto Ricans. Mrs. Clinton is considering a bid for the Senate from New York in 2000.
Clinton said in his letter that "political considerations played no role in the process.''
The FALN the Spanish abbreviation for the Armed Forces of National Liberation is responsible for a wave of bombings of U.S. civilian and military targets in the late 1970s and early 1980s that left six dead.

- WASHINGTON -- Two Norwegian public-relations executives and one member of the Norwegian Parliament say they were contacted by the White House to help campaign for President Clinton to receive this year's Nobel Peace Prize for his work in trying to negotiate peace in the Middle East.
Clinton Lobbies for Nobel Prize: What a Punk
White House Lobbied For Clinton Nobel Peace Prize
Updated Friday, October 13, 2000
By Rita Cosby
- There's been speculation in the last few months that Clinton was pursuing a Mideast peace accord in an effort to win the prize and secure his legacy as president.
AIDES PUSH CLINTON FOR THE NOBEL
- At the time, clinton observed: "I made more progress in the Middle East than I did between Socks and Buddy." Retrospectively, it is clear that clinton's characterization was not correct.
Buddy Death Report Raises More Questions Than It Answers
As for pathologic self-interest, check out Richard Miniter's C-SPAN interview; the interview is contained in my latest virtual hillary movie (below), hillary talks:ON TERROR; it is absolutely devastating for the clintons. Miniter lays out in sickening detail the clintons' monumental failure to protect America.
The Democratic Party's Problem Transcends Its Anti-War Contingent2
Note in particular Madeleine Albright's shocking reason given at the time of the USS Cole attack why the clinton administration should not respond militarily. It tell us everything we need to know about the clintons. It tell us why clinton redux is an absolutely suicidal notion.
Notwithstanding their cowardice, corruption, perfidy and essential stupidity, the clintons, according to Albright, made their decision not to go after the terrorists primarily to enhance their own legacy and power. The clintons calculated that such inaction would MAXIMIZE THEIR CHANCES TO RECEIVE THE NOBEL PEACE PRIZE. No matter that that inaction would also maximize the terrorists' power, maximize America's danger.
The Nobel as clinton Pavlovian stimulus--a timeline
(In this season of gift horses and attack dogs, let us not forget the good clinton dog, Buddy...)
To this day, clinton seems not to understand that bin Laden is -- and was in 1996 -- an enemy of the state, not a simple criminal.
Clinton does not get it: the same terrorist --the terrorist he refused to take--hit the same building in '93.(To be sure, clinton cluelessness is only part of the explanation for this monumental blunder; other critical components include clinton cowardice, criminality, rapaciousness and, that which permeates everything clinton, concern for his/their noxious legacy.)
Notwithstanding this, to hear clinton tell it, his disastrous decision not to take bin Laden when offered up on a silver platter by Sudan, (arguably the worst decision ever made by a president), derived from his scrupulous avoidance of abusing power and trashing laws...
- Yeah, right.
Left-Wing Talk Radio--'It's the terrorism, stupid'.
hillary talks:ON TERROR
he clintons' malfeasance-malpractice constellation was both a necessary and sufficient cause of 9/11. That is to say, had the clintons (BOTH of them--it was a "co-presidency," remember?) competently and honestly and courageously and selflessly done their job, bin Laden would be but a footnote today; 9/11, and perhaps even more important, the exponential growth of al Qaeda, would not have happened. It's really that simple.
