  • Powell's halo knocked ajar

    09/02/2006 9:46:54 PM PDT · by STARWISE · 76 replies · 2,676+ views
    On July 14, 2003, a Robert Novak column in The Washington Post outed the CIA-agent wife of vociferous Bush administration critic, Ambassador Joseph C. Wilson. Thus was born the "Plame Affair" which quickly became a morality tale of how an out of control Bush Administration would do anything to justify its war in Iraq. A mere three days later, journalist David Corn, summarized the allegations that would color reporting on the Iraq War for the next three years and eventually lead to the indictment of a top aide to the vice president for lying to a grand jury: ((((THE OLD...

    REDONDO BEACH, CA -- Former President Bill Clinton's half-brother pleaded no contest Monday to a misdemeanor DUI charge stemming from his June 6 arrest in Redondo Beach. Roger Clinton -- who entered the plea through his attorney -- also admitted an allegation that he refused or willfully failed to complete a chemical test. He was ordered to serve 48 hours in jail and three years on probation, according to the Los Angeles Superior Court's Public Information Office.

    The Republican National Committee wants to know why Bill Clinton’s former adviser purchased the house in California that Bill Clinton’s black sheep half-brother Roger lives in. An RNC memo from chief strategist Sean Spicer spells out the mystery: Justin Cooper owns an almost $900,000 home in the lush hills of an upscale Los Angeles suburb. But interestingly enough, he doesn’t live there. Roger Clinton does. Cooper is Bill Clinton’s body man turned wheeler-dealer. He’s gone from making a modest salary working in the White House to setting up an LLC just to buy a home for the president’s brother to...

    The American Mirror ^ | May 13, 2016 | Sally Miller
    Bill mentioned, “The only time Hillary gets aroused or agree to ‘play sexy’ is after she snorts coke. But, even then, she’s rigid and frigid.” Hillary Clinton despised Bill’s brother Roger but, she had to be nice to him since he supplied her coke habit. (Roger Clinton was charged with and convicted of a cocaine-related offense in 1985 and pardoned by Bill in 2001.) Bill talked about Hillary taking off work lots of times, desperate to find Roger. She cursed Roger but, at the same time, she had to be nice since he was her only source of coke. She...

    "......When Mr. [Tony] Rodham was short on cash in 2010, Mr. Clinton helped get him a job for $72,000 a year raising investments in GreenTech Automotive, an electric car company then owned by Terry McAuliffe, an old friend of Mr. Clinton’s and now the governor of Virginia. “I was complaining to my brother-in-law I didn’t have any money. And he asked McAuliffe to give me a job,” Mr. Rodham said during the court proceedings, which were the result of a lawsuit over unpaid legal bills filed by his lawyer in a child support case.

    The mystery man linked to Hillary Clinton’s personal e-mail account appears to be a Washington, D.C. stockbroker and former aide to the Clintons who played a walk-on role in controversies that dogged the former first family soon after it left the White House in 2001.The initial Associated Press report Wednesday about Hillary Clinton’s use as secretary of state of a personal e-mail server installed in her home in Chappaqua, N.Y. traced the creation of the system to a man named “Eric Hoteham.” There’s virtually no trace of an individual by that name in public records or other online databases.

    While Chelsea Clinton has been spotted flashing her bling (her engagement ring, of course), it seems that her cousin Macy is struggling to make ends meet. Former President Clinton's niece, Macy Clinton, said she is in such a rut, she uses a government benefit card to get food from her local grocery store. She blames her financial trouble on former President Clinton's brother, Roger, who she says abandoned her. "It's hard, because I'm a Clinton, too, but I have to be on food stamps, and I have to sacrifice everything just to make it day by day," Macy Clinton told...

    Those of us old enough to recall the 1990s can remember presidential half-brother and pardon recipient Roger Clinton, as well as presidential brothers-in-law Tony and Hugh Rodham -- all of whom were caught up in the pardon-gate controversy. None of them has been seen much (or at all) during Sen. Hillary Clinton's presidential campaign, not without good reason. I don't want to be too harsh, but let's just say they all firmly seem to fall into the Bill Carter mold of presidential siblings. The reason I bring them up is because according to Bill and Hillary's just-released tax returns from...

    [mugshot] Palermo, 3 April (AKI) - The deportation of former Mafia boss Rosario Gambino from the United States to Italy has been delayed, sources told Adnkronos. The 65-year-old Gambino,(photo) cousin of Carlo Gambino, boss of the Gambino crime family, has been sought by Italian authorities since 2001, when a request for extradition was originally denied by US judges. Eleven attempts for his extradition were rejected by US authorities on the grounds that a law known as '41-bis' could be result in Gambino being tortured in Italy. The '41-bis' article of the Italian penitentiary act gives power to the minister...

    What's stopping the Democratic presidential candidates from stepping forward and saying that even more important than electing their individual candidacies is electing a Democrat? What's stopping Sen. Barack Obama from saying if he doesn't win the nomination he will work his heart out for Sen. Hillary Clinton, and vice versa? (Vice versa is actually more important, since Clinton is the one who has implied McCain is more prepared than Obama to be commander-in-chief.) Where are Roger Clinton, and Tony and Hugh Rodham these days? That Bosnia sniper story was being questioned weeks ago. Did no staffer tell Clinton to...

    Excerpt - In the most surreal and, Santa help us, only truly interesting moment in "Fred Claus," none other than former presidential sibling Roger Clinton stands up and delivers a heartfelt confession about the pain of living in a more accomplished brother's shadow. As Clinton blubbers about love and devotion and "being there" for his kin, it all eerily comes into focus: The bulbous nose, the ruddy skin, the faint Ozarkian drawl … this guy really IS a mutant version of Bill Clinton! And, then, another revelation: He genuinely IS messed-up! And that's all the pathos or humor you're likely...

    A lawsuit accusing Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Rodham Clinton's brother of failing to repay debts to a Tennessee carnival operator has been settled. Tony Rodham was accused of failing to repay $107,000 plus interest to the bankrupt estate of Edgar Allen Gregory Jr. and his wife, Vonna Jo, both of whom received a presidential pardon in 2000. The case was scheduled to go to trial on Thursday, but the parties reached a settlement agreement, said Rodham attorney Samuel Crocker. The terms were not disclosed. Rodham had claimed in court documents the money he received from the Gregorys was for consulting...

    At least three individuals pardoned by President Clinton during his last minutes in office have run into further trouble with the government. But despite the recent brouhaha over President Bush’s commutation of the prison sentence of I. Lewis “Scooter” Libby and the controversy surrounding Clinton’s “midnight pardons,” Congress has shown little appetite for making substantial changes to the executive branch’s clemency power. While some lawmakers over the last decade have called for changes to the pardon system, the few bills proposed have not come close to becoming law. Financier Marc Rich, businessman Almon Glenn Braswell and Roger Clinton Jr., the...

Roger uses the "N Word" over and over again to relay who was hitting who.
