  • Kenneth Starr, Who Tried to Bury Bill Clinton, Now Only Praises Him

    An unlikely voice recently bemoaned the decline of civility in presidential politics, warned that “deep anger” was fueling an “almost radical populism” and sang the praises of former President Bill Clinton — particularly his “redemptive” years of philanthropic work since leaving the White House. The voice was that of Kenneth W. Starr, the former Whitewater independent counsel, whose Javert-like pursuit of Mr. Clinton in the 1990s helped bring a new intensity to partisan warfare and led to the impeachment of a president for only the second time in the nation’s history. The presumptive Republican nominee, Donald J. Trump, increasingly seems...

    The Clinton White House tried just about everything to pull itself through the Monica Lewinsky scandal. A trove of documents released Friday by the Clinton Presidential Library sheds light on the White House’s internal machinations as it coped with the scandal — from efforts to discredit rivals and attack the media to attempts to boost West Wing spirits by sharing supportive op-eds or the unfavorable poll numbers for special prosecutor Kenneth Starr.The emails follow the arc of the scandal as it grew from a media frenzy to a constitutional crisis and then began to subside as President Bill Clinton regained...

    Liberal groups are building a grassroots army in Iowa and New Hampshire in hopes of stopping a Hillary Clinton coronation in 2016. While the progressive groups don’t have a candidate, they are hiring organizers and opening offices as if one will emerge. At a minimum, the groups hope their efforts will push Clinton to the left. And if the political winds blow just right, the activists hope Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) will take the plunge — and turn their organizing work into the foundation for her candidacy. Officials form Democracy For America, a liberal group, are getting involved in local-level...

    The first federal prosecutor to probe the financial dealings of Bill and Hillary Clinton says he was poised to bring high-profile indictments against top Arkansas political and business figures — based in part on testimony from a chief witness against the then president — when he was abruptly replaced by a panel of federal judges, throwing his investigation into turmoil. "I was angry, frustrated and above all disappointed that I was not going to be able to carry through and finish bringing the indictments," writes Robert Fiske, a former U.S. attorney who served as the original independent counsel in charge...

    "Whitewater" is a term that younger Americans probably don’t remember. And Hillary Clinton was counting on it staying that way. But for watchers of the Clinton White House, it was a property investment scandal dating back to the first days of Bill’s first term in office. And now, it’s back and setting former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s White House dreams on fire. The Clinton library is going to be releasing documents, which include the once sealed Whitewater files. They will be included in a new book by Robert Fiske, the former U.S. attorney who was the first independent counsel...

    In the years since their bitter battle, both former President Bill Clinton and independent counsel Ken Starr have predicted they’d be vindicated in the history books. Now the first definitive history of the Clinton scandal is about to arrive — and neither man can be completely happy about his portrayal in its pages. “The Death of American Virtue,” due out in February, asserts that Clinton had yet another extramarital affair, with Susan McDougal of Whitewater fame. Also in the book, Monica Lewinsky tells author Ken Gormley that she believes the president lied under oath when he described their encounters. At...

    SAN FRANCISCO - Lawyers for a death row inmate, including former Whitewater independent counsel Kenneth Starr, sent fake letters from jurors asking California’s governor to spare the man’s life, prosecutors said Friday. The jurors denied they thought Michael Morales deserved clemency because some of the testimony at his trial may have been fabricated, said Nathan Barankin, spokesman for Attorney General Bill Lockyer. “We showed each person the declaration on their behalf and they all said they didn’t say that,” Barankin said.

    So Bill Clinton has written a 957-page book about his life. It appears to be the literary equivalent of the movie "Airplane!" in which the main character, Ted Striker, kept trying to bore captive passengers with his life story, as they all killed themselves rather than listen to him drone on and on and on. Luckily, nobody actually has to read the entire Clinton memoirs. Nobody should, given Clinton's fathomless credibility problems. Millions of Clinton fans will buy it, and maybe one or two of them will even finish it. But let's be clear about this book. It's an opportunity to...

    At last it can be told. The mystery of why New York Sen. Hillary Clinton was willing to sacrifice her self-respect and her dignity to stay in a humiliating marriage to ex-President Clinton is a mystery no longer. She did it to save America. In her book "Living History," Mrs. Clinton recalls that after she learned about Monica Lewinsky, "I knew what I did and said in the next days and weeks would influence not just Bill's future and mine, but also America's." "Bill's Presidency, the institutional Presidency and the integrity of the Constitution hung in the balance," Hillary recalls,...

    ...Iraq - low on the danger list One of My Life's most arresting passages describes the handover meeting Clinton had with his successor in December 2000. George Bush reckoned the biggest security issues he would face would be national missile defence and Iraq. "I told him that, based on the last eight years, I thought his biggest security problems, in order, would be Osama bin Laden and al-Qaida; the absence of peace in the Middle East; the standoff between nuclear powers India and Pakistan, and the ties of the Pakistanis to the Taliban and al-Qaida; North Korea; and then Iraq."...

Weiner said, "I couldn't get past their call-in 800 line busy signal to ask what King himself should have asked and emphasized to Tripp...

    LINK“Over The Top” By Peggy NoonanWhile anyone on the left would immediately discount the source because she was one of President Reagan’s speech writers, they’d be smart to at least look at this one. Whether it’s bombing a recruiting station as a demonstration of their support for peace and “the troops,” or calls on liberal websites demanding that the DNC convention “re-create 68,” or perhaps it’s the growing Dem vs Dem punditry on tv…it really doesn’t matter. The point is the same: there is a deep fracture in the Democratic Party between Senator Obama’s supporters and Senator Clinton’s supporters. This...

    Olbermann Denies Liberal Bias, Insists in Politics He's 'Neutral' During an appearance on Friday's Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson on CBS, MSNBC's Keith Olbermann acknowledged accusations of liberal bias, but denied they were true, preferring to describe himself politically as "correct" and "neutral," without a "rooting interest" in who wins elections. Ignoring criticism from the MRC that, among other instances of bias during the 1998 Monica Lewinsky scandal, he once compared former Independent Counsel Kenneth Starr to Nazi war criminal Heinrich Himmler, Olbermann claimed that he was never accused of liberal bias while covering the scandal. Olbermann: "I've been...

    Them Dem"s can fight. When one of their own is in trouble, watch out. The gloves come off. When Ken Starr was the special prosecutor in the Clinton investigation, Starr became the story and the villain. The Democrats with the help of a willing press investigated him. They started a media campaign to destroy him and nearly did. Remember the mantra, Four Years and Forty Million Dollars, He was accused of being obsessed with sex, he was a partisan etc. Even Hollywood jumped on board. Who Can Forget Alec Baldwin's "We would stone Henry Hide to death and we would...

    How O'Connor got job -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Posted: July 5, 2005 1:00 a.m. Eastern © 2005 WorldNetDaily.com Sandra Day O'Connor is stepping down as a Supreme Court justice after 24 years, and most Americans still have no idea how she got the job in the first place. She got it through deception. She fooled President Reagan into thinking she was a supporter of the Constitution as written, and she did it with the help of a conservative Republican icon named Kenneth Starr. Starr is best known as the independent counsel who investigated Bill Clinton's crimes as president. As such, he set himself...

    There have been several posts recently advocating a plan to engage in illegal activities, that is, to break the new law restricting our free speech rights. Though I sympathize with the posters, Free Republic is not to be used to advocate illegal activities, thus these posts have all been deleted. However, should this clearly unconstitutional bill become the law of the land, I may choose to break it myself, but I would never encourage anyone else to break it. And I definitely would not recommend anyone use the internet to engage in the planning or execution of illegal acts. This...
