ABOUT THAT RIGHT-WING CONSPIRACY
Some people just do not have enough sense to keep their mouths shut.
With one brash statement, Hillary Clinton labeled nearly every American
believing in law and order, ethics and morals as a right-wing conspirator.
There was a direct benefit to the statement, though. Hillary
unilaterally made identifying political conspiracies acceptable. Thanks to
Hillary, to call a conspiracy a conspiracy is no longer verboten in polite
circles. Here's how she started it all on NBC's Jan 27, 1998 Today Show:
"For anybody willing to find it, and write about it, and
explain it, is this vast right-wing conspiracy that has been conspiring
against my husband since the day he announced for President. A few
journalists have kind of caught on to it and explained it, but it has not
yet been fully revealed to the American public. And actually, you know, in
a bizarre sort of way, this [the Lewinsky scandal] may do it."
Uh huh. Well, let's attempt to describe an ongoing political
conspiracy currently on most 'normal' American people's minds. The term
"normal American" used herein denotes those of us living outside
of the Washington, D.C. Beltway, in demographics usually overlooked by the
professional political pollsters.
We had better define conspiracy, too. My dictionary defines
conspiracy as: "An agreement to perform together an illegal,
wrongful, or subversive act." Or, in a legal definition: "An
agreement between two or more persons to commit a crime or accomplish a
legal purpose through illegal action."
That definition leaves 99.9% of us "normal" folks out,
at least where the Clintons are concerned. Therefore, Hillary couldn't
have been speaking about us. So, let's do a quick about-face and look at
her house and see what her people were up to.
There are many conspiratorial goings on at the White House, none
of which have anything to do with a right wing group. For instance, none
of us on the so called "right" ordered up those 900+ secret FBI
files and then obfuscated, lied and obstructed justice to cover it up. No
one on the "right" fired the career federal employees in the
White House travel office to make room for friends, and then obfuscated
and lied to cover it up. None of us so called right-wing conspirators
killed all those American citizens at Waco, or covered it up by destroying
all evidence and then lying under oath about it. Nor have any of us normal
American citizen type trouble making right-wingers taken money from big
business concerns and communists to change laws, rules and regulations.
And certainly, no right-wing conspirator allowed communist Chinese
controlled agents to view top secret papers, or allowed high tech
materials needed for modern war to be shipped to a communist country.
Lastly, not one of us right-wing conspirators has touched Bill's zipper.
Are any of us so called right-wingers performing together in
"an illegal, wrongful, or subversive act" like any of the above?
If so, it is amazing that the White House media sycophants have reported
So, let's take an even
closer look at the far- left -- their defacto leader, for this matter,
being Hillary. Hillary set up a White House propaganda machine made up of
the usual cast of socialist characters: Ann Lewis, James Carville, Paul
Begala, Eleanor Clift, Dick Morris, Harry Thomason, Mickey Kantor, and the
soon to be indicted Harold Ickes.
The propaganda machine's purpose was clearly expressed by their
lead antagonist, James Carville, on numerous occasions: "He's one
more mistake away from not having any kneecaps," Carville said of
Independent Counsel Kenneth Starr a few weeks ago. More recently, Carville
announced that if the Starr investigators get any closer to the
philandering president, "There's going to be a war."
And, it's a propaganda war we are seeing today. This cast of
White House characters is "interviewing" (read intimidating) as
many of the people Starr puts before the grand jury as possible to glean
what was said. Their form of damage control, then, is to release certain
information and disinformation to their subservient operatives in the
media, and to blame the leaks on Starr.
Overall, it is a very interesting and effective strategy. The
White House propaganda machine is using the media as a disinformation
tool, and the Washington press corps is playing right along. Starr is
being systematically disgraced by the press, depicted as the bad guy in
this story. While all along, we are told, Clinton's approval numbers in
the polls are said to stay high.
But wait! An illegal
conspiracy is defined as: "An agreement between two or more persons
to commit a crime or accomplish a legal purpose through illegal
action." And, interfering in an ongoing criminal investigation is
still called "obstruction of justice." It is also still a crime.
A felony. Carville's mouth fired off, and provided our smoking gun. They
are purposefully and intentionally disrupting an ongoing criminal
investigation through the stealth dissemination of misattributed
information and disinformation.
Worse, three quarters of the conspirators making up the White
House propaganda machine are attorneys. Therefore, they are fully aware
that they are actively continuing in the process of committing a crime.
There is, hence, an organized crime in progress, and by extension, it
includes many in the national media.
That makes Hillary & Company's position rather risky.
Actually, their continuing illegal action is a gamble that could very well
blow up in their collective faces and force them all to leave Washington
in disgrace. It could even get them a little free room and board in a
white collar lock-up. Kenneth Starr knows what's going on -- most of
Washington knows. So, if Starr had any intestinal fortitude at all, he
would immediately indict Hillary and five or six others. He should get
them into a legal court before they nail him to the cross in the court of
After all, as Carville bragged on national television, this is
"war." Hillary & Company declared war against the office of
the Independent Counsel. What Carville did not say is that it is also war
against law and order. War against the Rule of Law. War against justice.
And what of us normal Americans Hillary labels as "right
wing conspirators" because we speak out against corruption in
government? We're the Christians, Jews, Muslims, Buddhist's and Hindus of
America with ethics and morals. We're the Black, Brown, Red, Yellow and
White people of the United States who know for a fact that the nation's
CEO is not supposed to be telling a 21 year old intern to "kiss
it" -- nor is he supposed to be accosting any female under 50 that
happens to be privately available for a minute or two. In other words, we
are the American people; the ones who grew up with enough religious
conviction and common courtesy for our fellow citizens that we know this
crew in the White House is nothing more than unmitigated trash.
Right wing conspiracy indeed! We are not "conspirators"
simply because, unlike the far left, we are not organized. Yet.
The Clintons, and their ilk, will do anything necessary to stay
in power. History is replete with this scurrilous type. And as with this
crew today -- those who think they are our ruling class -- the results
have always been disastrous to the well-being of the common people.
When the legacy of the Clinton administration is written, it will
be little more than a description of graft, corruption and perversion.
Ethically, morally and politically, this administration is quickly
becoming the worst in American history.
Folks, make the calls. Congress, do your Constitutional duty.
A CALL TO ACTION
There's another problem brewing in Washington. A very big problem
concerning political corruption, illegal activities, blackmail and big
time scandals that will include half of the elected officials and a whole
host of bureaucrats. It could very well cause the momentary downfall of
our federal government -- which, incidentally, may not be such a bad thing
after the shake out. But, that's another story.
Anyway, George Stephanopoulos
dropped the bombshell last Sunday on ABC's "This Week" with Sam
They were talking about the current Clinton sex scandals, and
hinting of the possibility Clinton may be asked by a delegation of
Democrats to leave office. Sam Donaldson mentioned that Clinton was not
coming clean with the American people.
"And if he has nothing to hide, why is he hiding?" Sam
"I agree with that," George Stephanopoulos replied.
"And there's a different, long-term strategy, which I think would be
far more explosive. White House allies are already starting to whisper
about what I'll call the Ellen Rometsch strategy." . . .
"She was a girlfriend of John F. Kennedy, who also happened
to be an East German spy," Stephanopoulos continued. "And Robert
Kennedy was charged with getting her out of the country and also getting
John Edgar Hoover to go to the Congress and say, don't you investigate
this, because if you do, we're going to open up everybody's closets."
. . .
Sam Donaldson then asked George Stephanopoulos: "Are you
suggesting for a moment that what they are beginning to say is that if you
investigate this too much, we'll put all your dirty linen right on the
table? Every member of the Senate? Every member of the press corps?"
"Absolutely," answered Stephanopoulos. "The
President said he would never resign, and I think some around him are
willing to take everybody down with him."
To which Sam Donaldson replied: "Well, may I just say, let
the games begin."
George Will added, "Well, it's called mutual assured destruction
in strategic language."
So there you have it. Sure, this bit has been played on some of
the major radio programs last week. But few dare say the word:
"Blackmail." And, blackmail is still illegal, you know. Even for
politicians and bureaucrats. If Clinton tells Members of Congress that if
they go too far in investigating the antics of the Clinton, Clinton &
Gore campaign, he will expose the many wrongdoings of Members of Congress,
he has committed yet another felony. Blackmail.
Yet, there was
Stephanopoulos, clearly firing a warning shot across the bow of the
investigative warship of Congress. Everyone in Washington caught it for
exactly what it was: a well placed warning. Blackmail. Yet, reports in the
press were nonexistent.
The White House can expose damaging information on hundreds of
politicians. Remember those 900+ secret FBI files? Those background check
files are mostly on Republicans, but there are a few Democrats and media
people in there too. That information would be very, very interesting to
the general public.
So, what can all this mean to us? That depends. Do you want to
see a major shake-out in Washington? Silly question. . . . Sorry.
Well then, what are you willing to do to encourage it?
I happen to agree with Sam Donaldson's reply to George:
"Well, may I just say, let the games begin!" Here's a chance to
pit them against each other, cause an interesting political food-fight,
and ultimately cull some of that putrid dead wood from the ruling class.
We can push the issue. We can all send a postcard to our three
Members of Congress imploring them to do the right thing for the welfare
of the country. We can all follow that up a few days later with a
telephone call to their local offices with the same message. And, we can
all ask our friends, relatives and neighbors to do the same.
Let's not worry about who is next in line for the presidency.
Right now, let's badger Congress into going after Clinton and Gore. Let
Clinton and Gore cause the problems with Congress and the press. Our
function will be to sit back and watch. Maybe kibitz a little, and egg
them on. But, mostly watch. And laugh. Because, if Clinton takes a few of
those permanent Lords and Ladies on the Hill down with him, so much the
better for us. Get your buddies elected in their place.
So, OK, it's not quite, "let the games begin." Rather,
this is more like 'We the People' becoming the umpire who blows the
whistle to start the game. However, once this game starts, there will be
no rules. That's the interesting part.
Opportunity knocks. If we want change, it's time for action.
NO CO-PRESIDENT WANTED
"Buy one, get one free," Bill Clinton said during his first
Presidential campaign. And, unfortunately, he was serious about sharing
power with Hillary. Hillary was serious about it too, and attempted to
take over domestic policy -- even to the point of appointing cabinet
members. "We are the President," she is quoted as telling people
So, a fair question is, who is really in charge of what? And,
under what authority can Hillary Clinton set any type of public policy for
the United States? The answer is, there is no such authority. She should
not be involved in government.
In the Federalist Papers #70,
Alexander Hamilton discusses why the executive branch of the federal
government is vested in one President. Let's see how these words written
210 years ago still ring true today:
But one of the weightiest objections to a plurality in the
Executive . . . is, that it tends to conceal faults and destroy
responsibility. . . . It often becomes impossible, amidst mutual
accusations, to determine on whom the blame or the punishment of a
pernicious measure, or series of pernicious measures, ought really to
fall. It is shifted from one to another with so much dexterity, and
under such plausible appearances, that the public opinion is left in
suspense about the real author. The circumstances which may have led
to any national miscarriage or misfortune are sometimes so complicated
that, where there are a number of actors who may have had different
degrees and kinds of agency, though we may clearly see upon the whole
that there has been mismanagement, yet it may be impracticable to
pronounce to whose account the evil which may have been incurred is
Having more than one person acting as president "tends to
conceal faults and destroy responsibility." Like, for instance, who
hired Craig Livingstone, who ordered the White House computer system, who
is responsible for ordering those 900+ secret FBI files, etc., etc., ad
nauseam. Everyone knows who, but the Republicans in Congress do not have
the courage to say it publicly.
Wherever two or more persons are engaged in any common enterprise or
pursuit, there is always danger of difference of opinion. If it be a
public trust or office, in which they are clothed with equal dignity
and authority, there is peculiar danger of personal emulation and even
animosity. From either, and especially from all these causes, the most
bitter dissensions are apt to spring. Whenever these happen, they
lessen the respectability, weaken the authority, and distract the
plans and operation of those whom they divide. If they should
unfortunately assail the supreme executive magistracy of a country,
consisting of a plurality of persons, they might impede or frustrate
the most important measures of the government, in the most critical
emergencies of the state.
hate the military, she more than him. Yet, reports say, they plan to
micromanage an attack on Iraq from the White House. And that, even though
neither Clinton has any military experience. Americans have every right to
know exactly which Clinton will oversee this upcoming military action and
Now comes the really bad news. Clinton's confidant, campaign
co-conspirator and fellow pervert, Dick Morris, writes in the Feb. 12
issue of "The Hill" that Hillary is taking over most
"The White House: The coup was bloodless and, most likely,
wordless. The minute President Clinton was thrown irredeemably on the
defensive on Jan. 21 -- the very day he began his sixth year in office --
Hillary took over. Not just the scandal defense but the building itself.
"The bargain is clear to both the president and the first lady.
She need never articulate it. He intuits it. Here's the deal: She'll bail
him out of this mess, but, now, she calls the shots.
"The president, hanging by his wife's largesse, knows enough
to step aside. From now on it will be her appointments, her policies, her
positions that get green lights. The formal staff of the White House will
have to take a back seat reminiscent of the health care reform days. Move
over Bowles, McCurry and Emanuel. Make room for the new kitchen cabinet:
Susan Thomases, Ann Lewis, Milan Verveer and Sidney Blumenthal. Le nouveau
regime est arrive."
Folks, that whirling sound you hear coming from Virginia is not
some sort of secret military device. That's George Washington, James
Madison and Thomas Jefferson spinning in their graves! We've got a
Marxist, feminist, lesbian with an obnoxious attitude as the illegal Chief
Executive Officer of this country.
Need I mention the Constitution one more time?
BLAIR TELLS OF "THIRD WAY"
President Clinton mentioned it in passing during the State of the Union
address, and British Prime Minister Tony Blair recently came over for a
planning session. The American public, however, know nothing, nada, zilch
about what is going on, and there is no plan by anyone in government to
explain it. So . . . we'll continue touching on the subject from time to
While visiting in Washington, Prime Minister Tony Blair gave an
interview with the Guardian newspaper, and evidently blabbed quite a bit
more than the Clinton Administration was comfortable with. Yet, our
national media almost totally disregarded the story.
Blair told the Guardian that his Labour party and Clinton's
Democrats would hold a conference in London next May. That conference
would be followed late this year, or in early 1999, by an international
follow-up conference, bringing on board the so-called "center-left
parties" from western and eastern Europe, Australia and north and
The purpose of the conference, as Blair related it, is "To
craft and define center-left philosophy for the world of today."
What does that mean?
"I want to start with the ideology that links Labour and the
Democrats," Blair said. "Then I want to bring together the
Anglo-Saxon definitions of these ideas and these policies with the
So far, still nothing. These were all basically innocuous
statements, not worthy of being reported to the American people. But then,
he spilled the beans out where anyone paying attention could see. Blair
said that the world's center-left parties had to put themselves at the
forefront of managing social change in the global economy. "The old
left [communists] resisted that change. The new right [conservative
capitalists] did not want to manage it. We have to manage that change to
produce social solidarity and prosperity."
there you have it: managing social change in the global economy to produce
social solidarity and prosperity. Blair's explanation is a short
definition of a political plan that has been in the works for quite some
time. It started with the Rhodes Scholars at Oxford University and is now
taught in select American schools, such as the Kennedy School of
Government at Harvard University. The perpetrators support a blend of the
best of communism and capitalism.
The captains of big business and industry are to continue
receiving every liberty, freedom and privilege they have come to expect.
In return, they are expected to produce products, generate capital and
support the governing elite.
Government's function will be to control the people, and insure a
ready work force. That will be accomplished through a myriad of laws,
rules and regulations controlling everything in the lives of the people.
This is the "Third
Way" type of government. One only need read a few of the hundreds of
laws, rules and regulations passed in the United States over the last
decade to see how rapidly the federal bureaucracy is implementing this
Already, our freedoms are only
what the federal bureaucracy allows us, and no more. Everything in our
lives, from womb to tomb, is closely regulated by government. Think not?
Quick -- name three things that are not regulated by the federal
government. . . . Right!
Now, pick a topic; any topic. Then read your copy of the
Constitution and see if you can find any authority whatsoever to regulate
that topic. Inconvenient, that. Evidently, the Constitution doesn't work
anymore. The Constitution no longer limits the federal government. The
Rule of Law has been changed. The problem is, government neglected to
inform the people.
That political anomaly called the Third Way is soon to become our
way. While we Americans were occupied supporting out families, busy
bureaucrats were incrementally implementing the Third Way plan by phasing
it in one law, rule and regulation at a time. We didn't notice. Now, it's
almost too late.
The only difference between what the Clinton & Gore
administration has planned for us and Soviet communism will be that extra
tax base we still call private property.
