  • Clinton Flack to Rush: Shut Up About Bin Laden Deal and Broaddrick Rape

    03/07/2003 10:28:10 AM PST · by kattracks · 189 replies · 1,862+ views ^ | 3/07/03 | Carl Limbacher and Staff
    Former Clinton press secretary Joe Lockhart angrily defended his old boss yesterday against a 1978 rape allegation and charges that he blew a deal for Osama bin Laden's arrest, after talk radio host Rush Limbaugh suggested the ex-president should be asked about the two scandals during upcoming appearances on CBS's "60 Minutes." "Bill Clinton won't talk about the stuff the American people really want to know. He's not going to address Juanita Broaddrick or giving the North Koreans two nuclear reactors to play with or rejecting three offers to take custody of bin Laden," Limbaugh said yesterday. Bristling over...
  • Clinton: 'Right Wingers' Won't Let Me Help Bush

    Ex-president Bill Clinton is claiming that the Bush White House turned to him in April 2001 to help solve the crisis prompted by China's downing of a U.S. surveillance plane over the South China Sea - and that the Bush administration would use him more except for the objections of "right wingers." "The Administration's only asked me to do two things," Clinton tells the Atlantic Monthly for its March issue. "One is to go to East Timor, which I was happy to do. The other was to talk to Jiang Zemin. Both of us happened to be in Hong...

    The Atlantic Monthly ^ | March 2003 | James Fallows
    [This is the transcript of an interview between former President Bill Clinton and James Fallows, of The Atlantic Monthly, on October 21, 2002. It occurred at the University of Arkansas, Fayetteville. Clinton was in Fayetteville to deliver a speech on foreign policy honoring his mentor, the late Senator J. William Fulbright. Also present at the interview were two of Clinton's associates from Arkansas, including Rodney Slater, former Secretary of Transportation. Clinton and his group arrived 45 minutes late. Clinton strolled into the interview room and took out a cigar, which he never lit. The transcript that follows, which was prepared...

    >Longing for Bill Clinton, By David Newman Feb. 25, 2003 One of the jokes doing the rounds in Washington and Jerusalem: Why did it take so long for President George W. Bush to make his policy statement on the Israel Palestine conflict (some eight weeks ago)? The answer? There was no one in the White House who could translate Bush's statement from Hebrew. Such is the perception of Israel US relations today. The two countries are seen as acting totally in tandem. Bush has given Prime Minister Ariel Sharon carte blanche to fight terror with all the means at...

  • Flim-flam man returns: Hugh Hewitt on the Clinton fly in Bush ointment

    The Atlantic Monthly shocks readers with its cover this month: A sculpted Bill Clinton with the headline "Post-President for Life." Two lengthy articles follow: a far too deferential account of what he's been up to and what he might try to accomplish by James Fallows, and a devastatingly accurate assessment of the vulgar appeal and carnival-like progress of the man George Will aptly branded the "worst man ever to be president," by P.J. O'Rourke. Clinton is of course again running for the White House, and Fallows' refusal to analyze his every move in light of Hillary's expected run in 2008...
  • Clinton's Axis of Evil: Limbaugh, O'Reilly, Hannity

    It looks like ex-President Bill Clinton has his own Axis of Evil, although the threats he warned about yesterday have nothing to do with terrorism. "(The Republicans) have a much better media machine than we do," Clinton insisted to "Today" show host Katie Couric, before naming, "Rush Limbaugh, Bill O'Reilly and Sean Hannity," who he said "are very outspoken, and are on the right wing of the Republican Party." Other cogs in the GOP's "media machine," according to the ex-president, include the Heritage Foundation and "sympathetic newspapers and sympathetic cable programs that are heavily weighted in their favor." "There...
  • THE CLINTON LEGACY CONTINUES Tax Moves by Enron Said to Mystify the I.R.S.

    02/13/2003 5:49:43 AM PST · by Liz · 14 replies · 217+ views
    Enron and other big companies have escaped taxes in recent years through financial maneuvers so complex that the Internal Revenue Service has been unable to understand them, the Senate Finance Committee will be told this morning by Congressional tax experts who spent nearly a year going over Enron's tax returns. In a report to the committee, the experts will explain that companies can avoid taxes by exploiting differences in the rules governing the two sets of books that all companies must keep, one for shareholders and the other for the I.R.S., according to people who have seen the report. These...

    PAGE SIX - New York Post ^ | 2/13/03 | RICHARD JOHNSON with Paula Froelich and Chris Wilson
    CHELSEA Clinton may end up being one of the best-paid college graduates ever. The McKinsey and Boston consulting firms are both vying for the Oxford scholar, and one source said, "McKinsey has upped the ante and offered her close to $100,000 a year." It beats the $60,000 PAGE SIX reported she was offered last month. Clinton's area of specialty? Health care, of course. "Chelsea wants to take over where her mother left off," our spy snickered, referring to Hillary Clinton's embarrassingly failed attempt in 1993 to establish a federal health care service.

    The United States should be more diplomatic than it has been in handling its current confrontations with Iraq and North Korea, former President Clinton said Wednesday in an appearance at the University of Texas. In an hour-long speech at the Erwin Center, Clinton addressed a possible war with Iraq, international diplomacy and President Bush's proposed tax cuts. But he said the country's largest threat today is the potential for a revived nuclear weapons program in North Korea. The remarks came on the same day that CIA director George Tenet revealed that North Korea has a long range missile capable of...

Retitled "The Wolf and Peter", the remake of Sergei Prokoviev's tale will tell the story from the point of view of the wolf, faced with the encroachments of urbanisation on his dwindling forest habitat.

    <p>Former President Bill Clinton yesterday said he had been "demonized" for trying to change the nation's health care system, and called for an attempt to find a "bipartisan solution" to improve health care in the country.</p> <p>"I think it's quite interesting that the worst congressional losses that the Democrats suffered in the last 60 years was the midterm for Harry Truman and my first midterm, and it both happened after we tried to fix health care and we were demonized" for trying to have the government pay for it, Mr. Clinton said.</p>
