    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...

Clinton revealed shortly after the “impeachment business” finished on Capitol Hill, Rep. Henry Hyde (R., Ill.) who managed the impeachment trial requested a meeting at the White House. The former president granted the meeting out of lessons of humility and forgiveness he learned from Mandela, he said: BILL CLINTON: I remember one day, oh, about a month after the whole impeachment business was over...

    WASHINGTON (AP) -- Former Clinton administration officials and congressional leaders packed into the Environmental Protection Agency headquarters Wednesday to mark the building's renaming in honor of former President Bill Clinton. "This is a very strong building, and Bill Clinton was a very strong president," Senator Barbara Boxer, D-Calif., said as she welcomed guests to what is now the William Jefferson Clinton Federal Building. Boxer sponsored the legislation to change the building's name. In front of family and friends Clinton strongly defended his environmental legacy, saying his administration's efforts to promote clean air, conserve land, and combat dirty water made a...

    WASHINGTON (AP) -- Former President Bill Clinton will have a marquee role in this summer's Democratic National Convention, where he will make a forceful case for President Barack Obama's re-election and his economic vision for the country, several Obama campaign and Democratic party officials said Sunday. The move gives the Obama campaign an opportunity to take advantage of the former president's immense popularity and remind voters that a Democrat was in the White House the last time the American economy was thriving.

    February 12, 1999 was the day social conservatism died in America. On that bitter day, President Bill Clinton was acquitted in his impeachment trial. The United States Senate determined that his perjury and obstruction of justice in the Monica Lewinsky scandal did not warrant his removal from office; the Senate’s view was shared by two-thirds of the American people. With that decision, traditional American morality bit the dust. Four days after Clinton’s acquittal, the late Paul Weyrich wrote an open letter to the American conservative movement in which he declared: Cultural Marxism is succeeding in its war against our culture....

At 1:25 p.m. on a day of constitutional drama and personal trauma, the Republican-led House voted 228 to 206 largely along party lines to approve the first article of impeachment accusing the Democratic president of perjury before a grand jury. Within the hour, lawmakers went on...

    Former President Clinton continues to provide lukewarm support for Sen. Barack Obama. In television appearances this week, Mr. Clinton endorsed Mr. Obama but made favorable statements regarding Sen. John McCain, and Gov. Sarah Paline and her husband, Todd. This contrasts with the criticism other Democrats have leveled against their Republican opponents. On "The View," Mr. Clinton said it is not necessary to demonize an opponent in an election campaign. When asked if it made sense for former Hillary Rodham Clinton supporters to vote for Mrs. Palin, Mr. Clinton said: "Voting is a complicated process." He praised Mr. McCain for helping...

    NEW YORK (Reuters) - Former President Bill Clinton warned rich countries on Friday that they should not learn the "wrong lesson" from the financial crisis and said it can be profitable to help the poor. While Congress debated a $700 billion bailout to save the U.S. financial system, Clinton said as he wrapped up his philanthropic summit that the turmoil could also be seen as an opportunity to invest in developing nations. He warned governments to avoid just "looking inward" as they sought to fix the financial system. "The people who have these microcredit operations, who are investing in poor...

    In a week when a great financial crisis came to a head and the presidential campaign reached a kind of warp-speed intensity, the man who seemed most likely to be there when you turned on a television was not the president or the treasury secretary or the candidates. It was Bill Clinton. As usual, he had a lot to say. What was unusual was the stir he made for things he did not say. Mr. Clinton has repeatedly described Mr. McCain, the Republican presidential nominee, as honest and trustworthy... Mr. Clinton has missed few opportunities, while allowing that he disagrees...

    For many months now we have been treated to Bill Clinton’s intermittent displeasure with Barack Obama. Sometimes it has been overt, sometimes covert. Most recently, while being fawned over by the ladies at The View, he allowed as how Hillary did not really want the vice-presidential nomination after all. (This makes sense to me, by the way.) At the Democratic Convention, he delivered a far better speech than the candidate, showing up the less experienced Illinois Senator without really doing anything for his presidential campaign. In fact, he seems to speak more postively of McCain–especially off the cuff–only the other...

    Bill Clinton said Monday he understands why Sarah Palin is popular in the heartland: because people relate to her. "I come from Arkansas, I get why she's hot out there," Clinton said. "Why she's doing well." Speaking to reporters before his Clinton Global Initiative meeting, the former president described Palin's appeal by adding, "People look at her, and they say, 'All those kids. Something that happens in everybody's family. I'm glad she loves her daughter and she's not ashamed of her. Glad that girl's going around with her boyfriend. Glad they're going to get married.'"

    Fannie Mae, the nation's biggest underwriter of home mortgages, has been under increasing pressure from the Clinton Administration to expand mortgage loans among low and moderate income people and felt pressure from stock holders to maintain its phenomenal growth in profits. In addition, banks, thrift institutions and mortgage companies have been pressing Fannie Mae to help them make more loans to so-called subprime borrowers. These borrowers whose incomes, credit ratings and savings are not good enough to qualify for conventional loans, can only get loans from finance companies that charge much higher interest rates -- anywhere from three to four...

    I have been trumpeting my gut feeling that Hillary Clinton and Bill Clinton were working beneath the scenes to secretly try to undermine Barack Obama. My reasons for believing this is because Hillary is a very ambitious lady. She wants to be president. She knows that if John McCain is elected she is in position to run as the Democrat front-runner in 2012 against likely Sarah Palin. She also knows that if Barack Obama is elected she must wait 8 years because she would not be able to oust an incumbent president. Today Bill Clinton told Chris Cuomo of ABC...

    Last month Barrack Obama sat down for a meeting with former President Bill Clinton at Clinton's office in Harlem. The obvious expectation from the meeting was for Obama to garner additional support from the Clinton machine in the wake of John McCain selecting Sarah Palin as his Vice Presidential running mate. Prior to Sarah Palin, Barrack Obama led in most of the polls and had a five point bounce from the Democratic convention. Although Bill Clinton and Barrack Obama shook hands and posed for the camera, it should be clear to anyone at this point that Barrack's agenda for the...

    There are two themes of going around the Internet of what the reason will be, preemptively, if Barack Obama loses the election for presidency in November 2008 despite his lead in polls. Racism or the fall back of "It is all the Clinton's fault." In August of 2008, Slate magazine declared the only reason Barack Obama could lose the election was because of racism and because the majority of Americans are racists. If it makes you feel better, you can rationalize Obama's missing 10-point lead on the basis of Clintonite sulkiness, his slowness in responding to attacks, or the concern...

On the other hand, if she thinks Obama is a loser, she may not want to be tainted by his loss. Kerry’s defeat didn’t position Edwards very well for the 2008 race.

    Call it the Blame Game. The liberals are already coming up with excuses if Barack Obama loses in November. We have already seen how members of the MSM are blaming it on racism. However, Huffington Post blogger, Paul Slansky, has found another villain: Bill Clinton. Slansky lays out the blame scenario in his blog: Given that we would never have had the odious George W. Bush in the White House in the first place if it wasn't for your blow jobs, Bill, it seems obvious that you owe it to the people of this country, and especially to the parents...

    Clinton Signs Legislation Overhauling Banking Laws WASHINGTON, Nov. 12 (Reuters) - President Clinton signed into law today a sweeping overhaul of Depression-era banking laws. The measure lifts barriers in the industry and allows banks, securities firms and insurance companies to merge and sell each other's products. "This legislation is truly historic," President Clinton told a packed audience of lawmakers and top financial regulators. "We have done right by the American people." The bill repeals parts of the 1933 Glass-Steagall Act and the 1956 Bank Holding Company Act to level the domestic playing field for United States financial companies and allow...

    NEW YORK — Bill Clinton said Monday he understands why Sarah Palin is popular in the heartland: because people relate to her. "I come from Arkansas, I get why she's hot out there," Clinton said. "Why she's doing well." Speaking to reporters before his Clinton Global Initiative meeting, the former president described Palin's appeal by adding, "People look at her, and they say, 'All those kids. Something that happens in everybody's family. I'm glad she loves her daughter and she's not ashamed of her. Glad that girl's going around with her boyfriend. Glad they're going to get married.'" Clinton said...

    Bill Clinton was a guest of the David Letterman show last night where he gave a tepid endorsement of Barack Obama. The next guest was Chris Rock who is genetically incapable of being tepid. He gave a near-belligerent excoriation of Clinton’s performance: “Is it me, or he [Clinton] didn’t want to say the name Barack Obama? He did not … He went through everything he could do … “Well like Hillary would want to do with the economy…” Hillary ain’t running. Hillary’s not running. What the hell?” If everybody hates Chris, he apparently doesn’t care. He makes an interesting point....
