    Today marks the fifteenth anniversary of the day the House of Representatives voted to impeach President William Jefferson Clinton for the high crimes of committing perjury and obstruction of justice while in office.As more Americans and Congressmen are coming around to the lawless conduct of President Barack Obama and the reality of impeaching to rein in his imperial presidency, it is important to remember that FReepers played a key role in impeaching Bill Clinton.On October 31, 1998, Free Republic held the first online-organized national protest to call for Clinton's impeachment and removal from office. The rally was broadcast live...
  • Catching Our Flag, James E. Rogan

    This is a heart wrenching history of the Clinton Impeachment using Rogan's diary. You get practically day-to-day report of what was going on inside the Judiciary Committee and the impeachment investigation, as well as the details of the "trial" that wasn't a trial. It's a testament to the bravery and fortitude of a group of men who put principle above politics, who stood for the Constitution against enormous opposition. They did the right thing.

    Two quotes from Bill Clinton in Ken Gormley's new book "The Death of American Virtue" reveal Bubba's strange self image for a U.S. President. He sounds like someone bragging to his fellow drinkers in a bar. Quote 1: "Yeah, I will always have an asterisk after my name, but I hope I'll have two asterisks: one is 'they impeached him,' and the other is 'He stood up to them and beat them. And he beat them like a yard dog.' " Quote 2: "I felt they were Wile E. Coyote in the pack and I was the Road Runner."

    Harvard University will bestow an honorary degree today on Senator Edward M. Kennedy at a special convocation. The ceremony will feature Harvard President Drew Faust and Supreme Court Justice Stephen Breyer as speakers, and musical performances by cellist Yo-Yo Ma and Harvard students. Kennedy will join an elite group who has received honorary degrees at special Harvard convocations, including George Washington, Andrew Jackson, James Monroe, Winston Churchill, and Nelson Mandela. In today's Globe, columnist James Carroll described, "why this honor is fitting, and why he belongs in such historic company." Kennedy had been scheduled to receive the degree at Harvard's...

    California Democratic Sen. Barbara Boxer is blocking the nomination of former Republican Congressman James Rogan to the federal bench, due largely to Rogan’s leading role in the impeachment of President Bill Clinton. Rogan served in the U.S. House from 1997 to 2001, and due to his background as a prosecutor, was selected as one of 13 House managers for the impeachment trial. “U.S. Rep. Rogan was one of the most enthusiastic backers of impeachment — he thought President Clinton had committed high crimes and misdemeanors,” Boxer’s spokeswoman Natalie Ravitz said.
  • On 3rd Anniversary, Conservative 'Tribune-Review' Calls for Iraq Pullout

    NEW YORK -- Several weeks ago, the reliably-conservative Tribune-Review of Pittsburgh and Greensburg, Pa., startled many readers when it suddenly came out for the start of a U.S. withdrawal from Iraq. It did so, however, with a reference to preparing to take on Iran if necessary, so some dismissed the editorial as merely hawkish-in-a-different-direction. What would it do on the thrid anniversary of the start of the conflict? In a Sunday editorial, the newspaper affirmed its pullout demand--few Democrat-leaning papers have joined it--while also making clear it was not in favor of pre-emptive war elsewhere. Here is the editorial. *...

    Jerrold Nadler's Two Faces on Terror By Jacob LaksinFrontPageMagazine.com | June 13, 2005Last Friday’s House Judiciary Committee hearing on the Patriot Act had already been adjourned, but Jerrold Nadler, the Democratic blimpish congressman from New York and one of the leftmost members of the House Judiciary Committee, was too wound up to care: “We are not besmirching the honor of the United States, we are trying to uphold it,” bellowed the hefty Nadler. By this, Nadler meant to defend his attacks on the alleged abuses of the (in fact) privileged  prisoners in Guantanamo Bay. Thanks to the efforts of the...

    Kenneth Starr says he never should have led the investigation that resulted in the impeachment of former President Bill Clinton. The former independent counsel, now dean of the Pepperdine University law school, says "the most fundamental thing that could have been done differently" was for somebody else to have investigated Clinton's statements under oath denying he had an affair with White House intern Monica Lewinsky.

    From Reuters: “Her affair with Clinton while he was in office and his subsequent denials of it led to his impeachment in December 1998 after a lengthy and expensive investigation by independent counsel Ken Starr.” 'Destroyed' Lewinsky Speaks Out on Clinton Memoir, By Jeffrey Goldfarb Put aside for one moment your personal feelings about President Clinton and what you think about his presidency. Forget whether you think Clinton should have been impeached for what he did. Doesn't the press at least owe us the whole truth in stating the reasons for Clinton's impeachment?

    Today is Friday, Dec. 19, the 353rd day of 2003. There are 12 days left in the year. The Jewish Festival of Lights, Hanukkah, begins at sunset. Today's Highlight in History: On Dec. 19, 1843, "A Christmas Carol," by Charles Dickens, was first published in England. On this date: In 1732, Benjamin Franklin began publishing "Poor Richard's Almanac." In 1776, Thomas Paine published his first "American Crisis" essay. In 1777, Gen. George Washington led his army of about 11,000 men to Valley Forge, Pa., to camp for the winter. In 1907, 239 workers died in a coal mine explosion in...

    <p>ARTHUR Schlesinger Jr., a lifelong Democratic stalwart, says there is only one Democratic candidate for president he wouldn't vote for - Sen. Joe Lieberman. "He's the most sanctimonious member of the U.S. Congress," the eminent historian tells Avenue columnist Richard Turley in a wide-ranging conversation. Schlesinger says that on the 40th anniversary of the assassination of John F. Kennedy, "I've always been agnostic about the theory of the possibility of a conspiracy. I've always felt that at some point, someone involved in the conspiracy would have sold out to the National Enquirer for $1 million." Is there anyone whose judgment he respects who believes the Mafia did it? "My wife, Alexandra, does," he tells Avenue. Schlesinger opines that Bill Clinton should not have been impeached because, in his own mind, Clinton was not committing perjury when he denied having sexual relations with Monica Lewinsky because the ex-prez is one of the Southern-school types who believes that oral sex doesn't count.</p>

    Nobody wanted to impeach Clinton over sex. That's a lie spun out by his defenders. He was impeached over perjury and obstruction of Justice. "Well it was about sex, wasn't it?" So Bob Packwood should be re-instated to the Senate after being driven out over a similar sexual harassment scandal? Didn't see Democrats saying "It's all about sex" in that case. No, they said it was about a political boss pushing himself on a subordinate in an inappropriate way. Just like Clinton did to Paula Jones, as the civil case proved. But Clinton, unlike Bob Packwood, lied to a Grand...

The latest action item is a "Citizen's Declaration" for "the outbreak of war." The latest download is an "Inspections Work, War Won't" poster.

    Moynihan Myths   Moynihan Myth 1: "Scholastic" Means "Smart" Mia TMarch 26, 2003 Flip-flopping aside, Daniel Patrick Moynihan's scholastic and excessively subtle reasoning justifying his vote not to impeach and remove bill clinton reveals more about the hog-and-bow-tied senator and his party than about the Constitution of the United States. It had long been rumored that Sen. Moynihan was the Democratic Party's mind. A complete absence of the construct failed for decades to disabuse us of this notion. This apparent incongruity only widened in the '90s. Under the tutelage of the clintons, "Democratic Party mind " quickly devolved from...

    Hi all; Well, it's finally happened. After five years of aggregating heavily cross-referenced content on the Lewinsky Scandal, Clinton Impeachment, and Levy Homicide, my TRIPOD website has maxed out of its alloted 20 megs of storage space and 1 gig/day bandwidth. As I can't afford to pay for increased space at TRIPOD, I was hoping some FReeper could suggest another no- or low-cost web host.
