  • Following Orders: The Death of Vince Foster, Clinton White House Lawyer Prologue

    07/21/2014 5:56:45 AM PDT · by Opinionatedtoday · 27 replies
    While it might have initially appeared that the deputy counsel to the president of the United States was taking a nap in a park—lying neatly face-up on a steep embankment with his feet pointing down—Vincent W. Foster Jr. was not napping. He was dead. Dressed in expensive trousers and a white dress shirt, less than eight miles from the White House, he was lying dead. A single gun-shot wound to the head. Dead. Some of the blood on Foster’s face was still wet, but starting to dry. A trail of blood flowed upwards from his nose to above his ear.[1]...

    HOUSTON – A Houston woman who says she is pregnant with Arian Foster’s baby is taking the Texans running back to court. Brittany Norwood, a 20-year-old University of Houston senior, says Foster has been pressuring her to get an abortion. Norwood claims she didn’t know Foster was married with children when she had sex with him last summer. She said they were first intimate at Hotel ZaZa where Foster was staying during training camp. Norwood said they also spent a week together in California in November while Foster was recovering from back surgery. Norwood sold photos of them together in...

The 43rd president reportedly sent Foster a personalized letter encouraging him to press on through life’s challenges. “Dear Cade (#43), life has its setbacks. I know! However, you will be a stronger human with time. I wish you all the best. Sincerely, another 43, George Bush,” the letter reads.

    Down memory lane: 20-years ago today - the Clinton's personal lawyer, Vince Foster, turned up dead in Fort Marcy Park On a Monday night in July 1993, a 48-year-old lawyer called Vince Foster was found dead in a park near Washington DC. He had died from a gunshot wound to the mouth and his father's .38-calibre revolver, dating from 1913, was at his side. [Snip] In real life, Vince Foster was distraught at the prospect of being grilled about the shady affairs of Hillary Clinton. A clear case of suicide, then. Or was it?

"I'll be back," he said, walking out without a briefcase or anything else in his hands. ~~~~~ "There was a tiny bit of dried blood around the mouth and nose, so I thought maybe he'd been hit on the back of the head," he said later. Kyle went in to take a closer look. He would later recall flies buzzing around the dead man's mouth and nose, the dead man...

    Black radical WEB DuBois, who later joined the Communist Party, was the organization's first director of publicity and research, as well as editor of the group's monthly publication The Osiris. This publication gave DuBois an excellent outlet from which to pour forth all manner of racial invective against whites, supposedly in the name of "promoting equality." .... DuBois was known to have "hailed the Russian Revolution of 1917" and he travelled to the Soviet Union in 1926 and 1936. He especially liked 'the racial attitudes of the Communists'." In 1922 the NAACP started to receive grants from the Garland Fund,...

    SPRINGFIELD, Ill. (AP) — An Illinois judge on Tuesday put Catholic Charities back in the business of finding foster and adoptive homes for children, reinstating — at least temporarily — contracts that were halted when the not-for-profit agency refused to recognize the state's new civil unions law. The Sangamon County Circuit Court ruling applies to contracts between the agency and the Department of Children and Family Services. The decree is temporary until the matter can be decided after an August hearing. DCFS ended its decades-long relationship with the agency last month because Catholic Charities refused to recognize Illinois' new civil...

    When most women are expecting their fourth child, they don’t decide to start taking in foster children. But that’s what Michele Bachmann did. For six years, from 1992 to 1998, she opened her home to a total of 23 teenage girls who needed a family. She juggled raising up to nine kids at a time, homeschooling her grade-school-age and younger biological children during the day and bonding with her high-school-age foster children at night. It was a demanding life — to get a taste of the workload, consider that Bachmann was often doing four loads of laundry daily – but...

Owen and Eunice Johns of Derby, England, had cared for more than a dozen foster children through 1993, but when in 2007 they wished to resume foster care, they were required to reapply with their city council. In the interval, however, Great Britain passed the Sexual Orientation Regulations and the Equality Act, which led a social worker to question whether a Christian couple would be...

    Vince Foster's Death In July 1993, Clinton aide Vince Foster was found dead in a Virginia park. The death was officially pronounced a suicide, but rumors abounded that Foster was murdered. Foster's death has ties to several White House scandals, including the administration's handling of "Travelgate," the Waco incident and the Whitewater affair. The Whitewater Connection Kenneth Starr, special counsel in charge of the Whitewater investigation, investigated Foster's death and what relationship it might have had with Whitewater. In three articles in the Electronic Telegraph, Ambrose Evans-Pritchard reported on the investigation and the possibility of a coverup. In March 20,...

    Democrat Bill Foster’s victory over Republican Jim Oberweis in Saturday’s special election in Illinois is evidence of the clamor for change in the countryside? Perhaps. Are exurban Chicagoans disgusted with Washington? Yes, they are. But there were some uniquely local factors that were more decisive. This was Oberweis’ fourth run for high office since 2002. Over the past six years, he has turned in more stale, lackluster, straight-to-video performances than Matthew McConaughey. The dairy magnate’s gaffe-filled campaigns have demonstrated one thing clearly: he has exponentially more personal wealth than good sense. He burst onto the scene in 2002 running for...

    Some people would later say that Vince Foster – tall, with impeccable manners and a formal mien – worshipped Hillary Clinton from the start, or that he had been awed by her from the time they met, or that he had never met a woman like her who was so whip-smart and almost sassy. What is unquestionable is that he and Hillary grew incredibly close. For the next 20 years the relationship would confound Foster’s wife (but not Bill Clinton), their colleagues at the Rose law firm in Little Rock, Arkansas, and the White House, and women who had known...

    BALTIMORE - Kudos to Del. Nancy Stocksdale for standing up for some of the most disadvantaged in the state — foster children. The Republican from Carroll County, a former teacher, recently filed legislation in the General Assembly to make scholarships available for foster children in kindergarten through high school. They deserve them. Everything else in their lives works against them. Shuttled from home to home, the 11,000 foster children in the state — 7,000 in Baltimore City — lack stability in every corner of their lives. Many move into the system from sexually and physically abusive homes where surviving trumps...

    I met Patrick Knowlton. He was one of the keys to the case. How Vince got to the park has still never been solved. Trooper Roger Perry was on duty at the Governor's Mansion in Arkansas when he received the phone call from Helen Dickey (Chelsea's nanny). That call was at about the time the body was found. Clinton claims he found out a couple hours later when he was on Larry King. Dickey lied in her testimony to D'Amato's committee and claimed she learned about the death hours later. Perry and Larry Patterson wanted to testify but D'Amato refused...

    ALBANY, N.Y. -- Democratic Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton is getting her bid for a second term under way with a sometimes emotional 18-minute video that features praise from her husband and even some New Yorkers who opposed her candidacy six years ago. "I didn't vote for her. I think I will this next election," says Tim Damon, owner of Damon Rods in Potsdam, N.Y., whose company's Web site shows former President Bush with a Damon fishing rod. The video, previewed for The Associated Press, will be shown Wednesday at the state Democratic convention in Buffalo as the former first lady...

    PHILADELPHIA - You can add rapping to the list of Jodie Foster's talents. The Oscar-winning actress spoke Monday at the University of Pennsylvania's commencement ceremonies, ending her address with the chorus of Eminem's "Lose Yourself" from "8 Mile," the semi-autobiographical 2002 film in which he starred. Foster, who graduated from Ivy League rival Yale University in 1985, received an honorary doctor of arts degree. She earned laughs from the graduates by taking pictures of them from the podium and then by recalling her own years at Yale. But she struck a serious note later, saying the country and world are...

    NBC White House correspondent David Gregory ate a little crow Sunday on this "Meet The Press," apologizing for his arrogant behavior during White House press briefings dealing with the shooting of a hunting companion by Vice President Cheney. Reacting to the storm of criticism leveled by the public at the Washington press corps for complaining that they were not told immediately about the incident, leaving the job of reporting it to a small-town Texas newspaper, Gregory apologized for his boorish behavior. "I think I made a mistake,” he told host Tim Russert. "I think it was inappropriate for me to...

    BEGIN TRANSCRIPT: RUSH: A lot of people thought that Hillary Clinton would not weigh in on the Cheney story because she had delayed for 30 hours the releasing of the Vince Foster suicide note. The people said, "Ah, she's not going to say, because if she joins the fray here, why, she's got her own little thing to explain." Wrong-o, folks. The mainstream media is not going to hold Hillary Clinton accountable. Hillary Clinton did weigh in on this yesterday, and nobody -- nobody -- is talking about Hillary Clinton's past problems with secrecy, Travel Office firings, FBI files that...
