Judicial Watch Files Lawsuit to Obtain Records from Clinton Presidential Library for Hillary Clinton
DocumentsWashington, DC - Judicial Watch, the public interest group that investigates and prosecutes government corruption announced today that it filed a lawsuit on July 16, 2007 in U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia against the U.S. National Archives and Records Administration to obtain access to the following records from the Clinton Presidential Library: "First Lady Hillary Rodham Clinton's calendar, to include but not limited to her daily office diary, schedule, day planner, telephone log book, and chronological file." The Archives, which operates and maintains Clinton Presidential Library records, failed to respond to Judicial Watch's April 5, 2006 Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request.
"Judicial Watch has a clear statutory right to have the Library search for and produce all non-exempt records responsive to its April 5, 2206 FOIA request within the time frame required by the [law]. The Library also is required to produce an index of any responsive records it seeks to withhold from Judicial Watch under the claim of exemption," Judicial Watch wrote in its court filing. "Although more than 15 months have passed since Judicial Watch served its request, the Library has failed to do either."
Judicial Watch is seeking Mrs. Clinton's records from January 1, 1993 to January 20, 2001, the approximate time period during which she served as First Lady.
On January 20, 2006, more than 80 million pages of documents and 20 million e-mails from the Clinton administration were supposed to be made available to the public, yet only a portion have been released. Judicial Watch believes these documents potentially contain a treasure trove of previously undisclosed information. (Judicial Watch has made a number of requests to the Clinton Presidential Library concerning various Clinton administration scandals.)
"Given Mrs. Clinton's current status as a presidential candidate, if not the front-runner for the Democratic Party's nomination, the public interest in her tenure as First Lady is undeniable," Judicial Watch stated in its lawsuit. "Because Mrs. Clinton seeks our nation's highest office and may well be the next President of the United States, the public interest weighs heavily in favor of enjoining the Library from continuing to withhold the records at issue."
"This lawsuit is a first step in obtaining access to new documents about Hillary Clinton's role in the Clinton White House. With Hillary Clinton aggressively pursuing the presidency, uncovering the truth about her activities in the White House is just as relevant today as it was during the Clinton era," said Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton. "The law requires the timely release of these and other Clinton White House documents. The court should compel the Archives to comply with the Freedom of Information Act and quickly release these records."

FOR HILLARY CLINTON, the presidency is not in the bag. Even winning the Democratic presidential nomination is considerably less than a sure thing. But of the 18 Democratic and Republican presidential candidates, Clinton is the most likely to be the next president. And she did nothing last night in the bizarre presidential debate in Charleston, South Carolina, to alter that.
Senator Obama is escalating his criticism of Senator Clinton's record on the Iraq war, using a Democratic presidential debate last night to belittle her attempt to force the Pentagon to release plans for withdrawing American troops.
"I think it's terrific that she's asking for plans from the Pentagon, and I think the Pentagon response was ridiculous," the Illinois senator said in a response unprompted by a specific question about Mrs. Clinton, before targeting her initial support for the Iraq invasion: "But what I also know is that the time for us to ask how we were going to get out of Iraq was before we went in."
It seems to me that the Democrats have "forgotten" (for political reasons) THE WHY this nation is at war.
When he was good, he was very, very good. When he wasn't, he was dangerously close to ordinary. Spoke movingly - even/almost presidentially - about America's troubled history with race, his favorite teacher and how hard he would fight for universal health care. (Obama even drew an approving nod from Elizabeth Edwards in the audience on that last one). Took occasional soft shots at Clinton on Iraq and her questionable ability to fight for change (his main theme), but never made a decisive impact. He began many more sentences with, "When I am president" (without the conditional) than he has in past debates, but his own video (all the candidates made them, and they were sprinkled throughout the telecast) hit more Kennedy chords than the live Obama did. Still, his best performance to date, positioning him to return in later forums to the change-change-change contrast he wants (and needs) to define his candidacy.
She had some strong answers, but seemed to be sitting on her lead and didn't emerge as the clear winner like she has in recent debate outings. Clinton took the incorporation of the YouTube questioners' names to an extreme - at times she seemed engaged in monologue-as-dialogue with them, as if they were actually on the stage. Still, she topped main rival Obama at a key moment with a decisive analysis of diplomacy and neatly sidestepped questions about how to define "liberal" (as if she had practiced it!), her gender (smilingly turned the question to her bread and butter-experience and leadership), Elizabeth Edwards' recent challenge to her feminist cred (gracefully turning the other cheek) and the potential Bush-Clinton-Bush-Clinton dynastic turnoff (with an audience pleasing anti-Bush 43 shot and chaser).
Started out blazing, with passionate answers railing against banks, mortgage companies, insurance companies and special interests of all stripes. But CNN seemed to validate the CW that Edwards has dropped from the first tier by forcing him to go long stretches without talking, leaving the candidate looking aggravated and with nothing to do but tap his fingers in the cutaways. His submitted video took on the infamous $400 haircut with cutting humor — but in a fashion that might have been too slick for some. Fumbled the story of a female American pilot and Iraq vet who was sitting with Elizabeth Edwards in the audience, and inexplicably told Hillary Clinton he didn't like her jacket in an effort to offer an amusing response to a wacky question which had candidates saying something they liked and disliked about the person to their left. Passionate anecdote from his recent poverty tour showed him at his best near the end, but the slump in the middle (and the odd sartorial insult) cost him big.
The rest don't count. Just ask Edwards and The Rodham. And look who "won".
Well, sadly, I watched the entire Democratic Party Contenders For President Debate, hosted by CNN and they had a froggy YouTube thing. I wonder if Cal Worthington had anything to do with this. Debate. "IS" that what it was?
I can sum up the entire "debate" (for lack of a better word) in five (5 for those of you in CONgress) words. Bash Bush and Praise Reagan. We all know they HATED Reagan so the insidious referrals to one of America's Heroes was disingenuous at best.
The topics of discussion, rant or "debate" are as follows: Bash Bush, Global (not) Warming, Bash Bush, No Children Left Behind, Bash Bush, Praise Reagan, Bash Bush, Individual Rights, Bash Bush, Living Wage, Bash Bush, Praise Reagan, Who's Your Friend, Who Do You Like, Bash Bush, Who Don't You Like, Bash Bush, There Is Non One To My Left, Bash Bush, Praise Reagan, Bash Bush, Run Away From Iraq, Bash Bush, Praise Reagan, Bash Bush, Fight The Real Terrorists, Bash Bush, Bring The Troops Home, Bash Bush, Praise Reagan, Bash Bush, Bash Bush, Gun Owners Are Insane, Bash Bush, Bash Tennesseans, Bash Bush, Praise Reagan, All Undocumented Illegal Aliens Are Americans So They Get Everything Free While TRUE Americans Have To Pay The Bill, Bash Bush, Trash Talk Radio Because We Are Losers, Bash Bush, Praise Reagan, No Nuclear Power, Yes To Nuclear Power, Bash Bush, Grow Our Own Fuel, Bash Bush, Too Dependent On Foreign Oil Because We Stopped ANYONE From Getting Us Free From Foreign Oil, Bash Bush, I Am Not A Liberal But A Modern Progressive (GD Communist), Bash Bush, Yon Who?, Bash Bush, Praise Reagan, Run Away From Iraq, What Does Victory In Iraq Mean, Bash Bush, Fairness Doctrine Only If You Think As I Do, bash Bush.
Did I miss anything?
The MOST dishonest would-be Presidential Aspirant this evening was Hillary. Go to CNN, as I will be in the morning, and download the transcript for tonight. Zero in on Hillary's answers and compare them to the videos in our VODPOD in the sidebar on the main page on this blog. Find the video in regards to "we are in this together", "I am going to take from those that have and give it to those that don't", find out just what in the hell a "modern progressive 'IS'" and compare it to her rhetoric of this evening and on the videos. Like Club For Growth was saying;
"Pigs were flying in South Carolina tonight during the Democratic presidential debate as Hillary Clinton announced that she is not a big-government liberal but a "modern progressive" that "believes strongly in individual rights and freedoms."
If she isn't for Big Brother Rule, she sure has quite a few people hood-winked. She really should pay more attention to her press releases and "remember" that WE ARE WATCHING and we have neat toys like camcorders and video cameras and B-L-O-G-S.
Modern Progressive? Is that like an old time communist? Click the link and check out the VERIFIABLE data therein. I thought I had a post on this blog the other day with this data. It vanished. Perhaps it went a little too far. Ho hum. I will place the post on my blog Take Our Country Back. If this link takes you to the main page, scroll around. If not, I have returned to place the exact link here.
Hillary is the epitome of communism with a little flare and condescension. Her detractors will deny this and so will she. Everything this Clear and Present Danger does is dishonest and entirely contrary to the United States. She wants to remake America in the vision of her mentors, Carl Oglesby, Saul Alinsky, Duncan Kennedy, Mickey Kantor, Thomas Emerson to name a few.
"Hillary was," as Barbara Olson observed in Hell to Pay, "a budding Leninist." Ibid., pp. 56, 62.
I take from conducting extensive research on The Rodham that a Modern Progressive "IS" an Old Time Leninist.
Do we want this in America?
Think about it.
"I am hard-pressed to imagine something more absurd than Hillary Clinton defending individual rights and eschewing the big-government label on national television," said Club for Growth President Pat Toomey. "Kudos to CNN host Anderson Cooper for keeping a straight face."
Oh, by the way. I think that Bill Clinton was the most corrupt and dishonest President we have ever suffered through in this country during my lifetime. If I had to say something nice about him I would say that he is more honest than his wife, and cuter. Well, that's something, I guess.
In a previous post Hillary; The Right Man?, we alluded to Hillary's questionable character. Now we have the two of them, BOTH with questionable character and Bill saying Hillary isn't trying to be a man. Is it because she already is?
Here is a great YouTube with audio of Bill Clinton being asked about Hillary. His response was not intended, I'm sure, as it appears when the words are in written form. Then again........
If it winds up being Fred against Hillary, the "Hill-Bill" pair is going to provide a lot to talk about!
From my friend Spree:
Stolen from Spree...this never ceases to amaze me either. I was just over at BlandlyUrbane's place reading and commenting on another bleeding heart liberal communist pinko moron Andrew "Moosetwt" Sullivan. He is one of those wanna-be generals as well. These idiots never stop.
In The News:
It is about damn time the Pentagon tells the surrender crowd, especially Hillary Clinton, who changes her mind as soon as the "polls' tell her to, how damaging their public desire to force America's defeat is to our National Security and how it demoralizes our troops!!!
WASHINGTON - The Pentagon told Democratic presidential front-runner Hillary Rodham Clinton that her questions about how the U.S. plans to eventually withdraw from Iraq boosts enemy propaganda.
In a stinging rebuke to a member of the Senate Armed Services Committee, Undersecretary of Defense Eric Edelman responded to questions Clinton raised in May in which she urged the Pentagon to start planning now for the withdrawal of American forces.
A copy of Edelman's response, dated July 16, was obtained Thursday by The Associated Press.
"Premature and public discussion of the withdrawal of U.S. forces from Iraq reinforces enemy propaganda that the United States will abandon its allies in Iraq, much as we are perceived to have done in Vietnam, Lebanon and Somalia," Edelman wrote.
He added that "such talk understandably unnerves the very same Iraqi allies we are asking to assume enormous personal risks."
Here is Undersecretary of Defense Eric Edelman Bio. I would say he is much more qualified to know what he is talking about, and shows perfectly, that Hillary, DOESN'T.
awwwwwwwwwwwwwwww, Hillary is gonna complain to his boss because she doesn't LIKE THE TRUTH.
Clinton spokesman Philippe Reines called Edelman's answer "at once outrageous and dangerous," and said the senator would respond to his boss, Defense Secretary Robert Gates.
Gates would do well to tell her to kiss his ass, if she cannot handle the truth, then she shouldn't be doing everything in her power to HELP THE ENEMY.
(If Gates has to show more diplomacy because of his position, well I don't, sooooo HILLARY, KISS "MY" ASS")
The "left" is atwitter with indignation.... How dare the Pentagon tell it like it is? Actually I think they are just pissed because, finally, years after they should have, our admin and our military are finally deciding to weigh in on the war in the media.
More on this from Fox News, (I am only adding this link cause it makes "certain" peoples heads explode)
In the meantime, we have the Sunni's ending their parliament boycott, which brings Iraq one step closer to those political benchmarks that will be due in September.
In other news, our U.S Diplomats seem to be seeing progress in Iraq, which of course the left is completely ignoring, because it just doesn't fit with their defeatist attitude.
We already covered General Petraeus and his fascinating interview telling us how much progress is being made in Iraq as well as showing us what difficulties lies ahead.
If you missed it in the previous post, head over to USA Today to see exactly why Victory in Iraq is vital to the U.S.
On The Blogs:
Also remember to take a look at how the Iraqi citizens are banding together to help the U.S, Coalition and Iraqi Security Forces to help route out insurgents and al-Qaeda members.
Amy Proctor from Bottom Line Up Front shows us that when a liberal MSM actually decides to leave the comfort of DC to embed with our troops in Iraq, they come away with a whole different attitude... CNN war correspondents are no exception. (3 minute video.)
Debbie Hamilton from Right Truth gives us more about the al-Qaeda leader in Iraq that we captured on July 4th, 2007. Seems he is singing like a little birdie.
Mike's America has some awesome, related Quick Takes. Cartoons included!!!!! That first quote cracked me up.
Demediacratic Nation points out something I have mentioned before, the "progressive liberals" only want us to listen to the Commanders on the ground in iraq, IF those commanders are saying what they want. Otherwise, why listen to them?
Gazing at the Flag says there should be a special place in hell for those that try to scam others using our fallen heroes families.
Back to Hillary Clinton for a second, Miss Beth's Victory Dance brings us some of her more memorable quotes.
Tanker Brothers brings us some words from a Gold Star Mother, for those unaware of that term, it means a mother who has lost a child in the military.
The Tygrrrr Express shows us some of the good, the bad and the ugly.
Woman Honor Thyself brings us Bur-Kas Bawling and Bellowing.
Finally, Heroes, from Yankee Mom.
This has been my look, so far, from around the blogosphere and in the news.
More might be coming.
WHAT?? Surely NOT!! We shall see.
That’s the question Republican operative Gary Abernathy raised on his Republican Gazette web site. The guy doesn’t do permalinks. But here is the guts of what he reported about Hillary Clinton’s July 27 visit to West Virginia:
Originally, the Lohman Group, which is organizing Hillary’s Hardy County visit, said in an email that Hillary would help dedicate a new health facility “to be followed by a fundraiser in her honor at the Guest House at Lost River. This is a real chance to meet Senator Clinton in a small setting where you will have your picture taken with her and have a chance to talk with her.” The email had apparently been forwarded to others by the director of the West Virginia Small Business Development Center on a state email account.
According to internet searches, the Guest House at Lost River is a resort “for Gay, Lesbian, and Gay-Friendly clientele.” Craigslist, an online site specializing in property listings, says of the Guest House at Lost River, “Relax at the straight-friendly luxury gay guesthouse just 2 hours from the DC beltway.”
Hillary Clinton may be a liberal in regard to the issue of gays and lesbians, but organizers apparently realized at some point that in West Virginia holding a fundraiser at a gay bed and breakfast would not be the best message to send. An official invitation circulating on Tuesday said the site has now been changed to the South Branch Inn in Moorefield, a traditional hotel and conference center.
Hmm. Is she the type who wouldn’t let Chelsea watch “The Flintstones” because of its theme song’s line, “We’ll have a gay old time.”
‘Tis one thing to oppose gay “rights.” That’s politics.
‘Tis another to accept their money and wash your hands after you touch “one.”
By the way, what’s with using state email accounts to politic?
The Other Gazette reported Hillary’s No. 1 in raising funds in West Virginia. But that’s like being on the basketball team for Munchkinland because she’s raised a mere $28,045 from West Virginia zipcodes. After 74 years of Democratic Party control, we’re the second poorest state in the nation.
Reap what you sow, Hill.
Willie Sutton may never have said that he robs banks because that’s where the money is, but Sutton did write: “Go where the money is … and go there often.”
Sen. Hillary Clinton wouldn't be the best advocate for women, one Democratic presidential candidate's wife said.
"Sometimes you feel like you have to behave as a man and not talk about women's issues. ... She wants to be commander in chief. But she's just not as vocal a women's advocate as I want to see. John is," Elizabeth Edwards said in an interview with Salon.com.
From what Liz has stated, I guess John would be the right woman? Well, his hair is pretty enough.
This just in from my friend Miss Beth:
(CLICK ON IMAGE TO ENLARGE)
Courtesy of Jimmy Z at Thompson Gunners/A Newt One here and referenced back to Snopes.com page here. Snopes lists many more, and of course, the context and source of all of them. None are really what we would expect from someone who considers herself to be "presidential" material--utterings of this ilk would never have come out of Margaret Thatcher's mouth in the presence of people to expose them later!
This woman is DANGEROUS for this country; I have no doubt this country will eventually have a female in the Oval Office--let's just hope NOT THIS WOMAN! Now, if we could only find a clone of Mrs. Thatcher! THAT is the kind of woman this country needs--not a vulgar hate-mongering socialist.
The other day, at my own blog, I did a piece here on Anna Quindlen and her whatever it was article on Hillary and Obama teaming up together. It was quite sad. Perhaps she should put her keyboard back in the box.
Then, today, I run across a piece from Don Surber here. The article is grand and right on track. I especially like the comments he received and I will place them in this post. I hope Don doesn't mind.
From Don Surber:
Anna Quindlen at Newsweek gushed over a Hillary/Barack ticket.
Whatever. That’s window dressing. First woman! First black! Between them, they barely have 10 years experience in the Senate. Yes, I am going to trust my nation’s security in the hands of a lightweight and a lightweight lite.
Hey, while she’s at it, Hillary should cop John Edwards’ hair style.
What is more troubling is that with this vacuum of experience comes a vacuity of ideas. Hillary was against staying home and baking cookies until she came out with a cookie recipe.
Into that vacuum will come the worst of the left, Dennis Kucinich, to fill in the blank.
Fairness doctrine? Kucinich was the first to resurrect that relic of the Roosevelt era. He told Lou Dobbs: “I think that this is an opportunity for America to revisit the issue of consolidation of the media. And how it relates to whether the media is serving in the public interest.”
That was in January. Now even John Kerry is flapping his gums about it. Look for Hillary to hop on that bandwagon when it becomes half-full.
She’s already latched onto Kucinch’s Big Idea from 2004: Outsourcing. Said Kucinich in 2004:
Three million Americans have lost their jobs, and the Bush Administration tells us — again — that’s a good thing? Their insensitivity to the economic devastation that their trade policies have inflicted on American workers is staggering. The only thing more outrageous is that they are so insulated from everyday Americans that they may actually believe what they are saying — because they keep saying it.
Last week, Hillary told the Indian Institutes of Technology Alumni gathering (the institutes are a major supplier of engineers to the Silicon Valley):
Workers in the United States are concerned about outsourcing, and I think they’re right to be - but so should all of us who value the bilateral relationship between the U.S. and India. If the U.S. continues to outsource jobs to India in increasingly large numbers, people will increasingly feel insecure and increasingly seek protection.
She said this even as she said she wanted to increase the number of H1-b visas so that tech companies can import more Indians.
Does that make sense to you? Me neither.
So while Quindlen plays dress-up dolls with the candidates, Dennis Kucinich is setting the agenda. Not to alarm anyone, but here is his plan to
really screw-up, er, “help” America:
1. Universal Health Care
2. International Cooperation: US out of Iraq, UN in
3. Jobs and Withdrawal from NAFTA and WTO
4. Repeal of the “Patriot Act”
5. Guaranteed Quality Education, Pre-K Through College
6. Full Social Security Benefits at Age 65
7. Right-to-Choose, Privacy and Civil Rights
8. Balance Between Workers and Corporations
9. Environmental Renewal and Clean Energy
10. Restored Rural Communities and Family Farms
We’ll be just like France: 45% paid in rates, 8% unemployment.

WaPo The Editorialist: Hillary's Real Iraq Strategy
Fred Hiatt explains how Hillary Clinton is finessing her Iraq war position to appease the Democratic base, even though the base still doesn't like her position. "Democratic primary voters do not want to hear of adjustments, redeployments, reductions. They want all troops out, now. That is why Clinton will devote one paragraph to the military defense 'of our very real strategic national interests in this region' and more than 10 pages to troop withdrawal" ... Markus Prior explains how greater media access in the United States has actually reduced the number of Americans who are political informed: "The most significant effect of more media choice is not the wider dissemination of political news but mounting inequality in political involvement. Some people follow news more closely than in the past, but many others avoid it altogether."
Early indicators of folks bailing out on Czarina...
Catsimatidis, owner of the Gristede's supermarket chain, and his wife, Margo, each gave $2,300 to Giuliani's presidential campaign last month, according to the former mayor's filings for the last financial period, which were released Friday.
Catsimatidis has been a major Clinton backer since she first ran for the Senate in 2000, and has been closely identified with the former first couple for years.
He has helped bundle donations for Clinton and hosted an event for her presidential campaign - even once predicting she would be the leader in the fund-raising field.
Catsimatidis, who is mulling a run for mayor as a Republican, couldn't be reached for comment. Besides his supermarket interests, Catsimatidis has also been involved in aviation, oil refining, real estate and publishing.
Other Giuliani donors during the last three months included former Met and Yankee pitcher Al Leiter, actress Melissa Gilbert, screenwriter Lionel Chetwynd, department-store heir Andrew Farkas and former New York Judge Donna Recant.
Perhaps people are beginning to see the light. Hillary has a habit of showing her true socialist underpinnings and people that have benefited from Capitalism are beginning to fear Hillary's threats of taking from the "rich" and giving it to folks that are too lazy to fend for themselves.
The interesting nuances of Czarina keep adding up the deeper and longer one pays close attention.
Ben Smith of Politico.com reports that the first attack on a new book on Hillary Clinton came from Media Matters for America, "a Democratic-leaning group whose founders are close to the New York Democrat senator's presidential campaign…" Bingo. It looks like the media may finally be coming to grips with how the Clinton machine operates. The Media Matters attack on a reporter for daring to co-author a book that is somewhat critical of the New York Senator is provoking interest in the group's ties to the Democratic presidential frontrunner. But there is far more to the story.
As we noted in our AIM Report, "How Hillary's Hit Man Got Imus," Media Matters can be considered, for all intents and purposes, a front organization of the Hillary-for-president campaign.
To recap: the attack on Imus really had nothing to do with his shocking comments about a basketball team. Imus was a shock jock paid to say shocking things. Imus was targeted because he hated Hillary and opposed her presidential run. Media Matters posted his comments as a way to get other potential Hillary supporters, such as Al Sharpton, to take up her charge against Imus. Sharpton obliged, later hosting Hillary and her good friend, Marian Wright Edelman, at his National Action Network conference. He had proven to the former First Lady that he could target and destroy one of her main political enemies in the media. For that, Hillary is indebted to Sharpton and his collaborator, Jesse Jackson.
This is just a thought. Seeing that Hillary is aspiring to the Highest Political Office in this country, shouldn't there be cause for concern over her apparent misdeeds and double standards?
Some members of the press and the public may prefer not to deal with these uncomfortable personal questions, but when control of the White House is at stake, the right to know has to take precedence.

A friend of mine has a point. Hillary may be rude, crass and not very nice but she is right but in a way in which she is not familiar.
From The Tygrrrr Express: Hillary Clinton was right about something...My head may explode
Naturally, I was drinking coffee at the time I read this title and almost wasted some. A few bits and pieces;
"...Hillary Clinton is wrong about virtually everything that matters in this world. It is not because she is stupid. Far from it, she is an intelligent woman who seems to soak up policy information. It is that her conclusions on most issues are simply impractical, unrealistic, and recycled ashes of past failures of others..."
"...At a recent trip to the circus, aka the democratic debates, Hillary Clinton was overheard John Edwards telling him that she wished they could have a debate without all of the lower tier candidates sucking up air time. She was criticized by many people for this. Her comments supposedly reinforced her image as an arrogant, haughty queen who thinks everybody else is beneath her. While on many occasions this perception may be reality, I am forced to say the four words I did not know could possibly exist inside of me…Hillary Clinton was right. My head almost exploded thinking this, but I am giving Lady MacBeth her due..."
"...Hillary Clinton was 100% right to be frustrated at being forced to contend with nonsense. Now if only she could have a platform so that more people could hear her speak. Then they would know she was right about virtually nothing else..."
In case you haven't seen the video yet, it is in the VODPOD in the sidebar.
The Jeremiah Project has a great piece (really long) on Bill Clinton and in the process of nearly vomiting, I came across some things about Bill and Hillary as well.
"The purpose of government is to rein in the rights of the people" -- Bill Clinton 1993 on MTV
"We can't be so fixated on our desire to preserve the rights of ordinary Americans" -- Bill Clinton in 1993 from USA Today
You know the one thing that's wrong with this country? Everyone gets a chance to have their fair say." -- Bill Clinton in 1993, Philadeplphia
"I'm not going to have some reporters pawing through our papers. We are the president" -- Hillary Clinton commenting on the release of subpeonaed documents.
"I have said that I'm not running and I'm having a great time being pres - being a first-term senator" -- Hillary Clinton
Anyway, here is an excerpt from The Jeremiah Project. Keep in mind the Hillary quote where she said, "...we are the President..."
The Enemies of your freedom
Following the events of Sept. 11, 2001 Americans have been distracted by the governement and the media into devising the enemy of our freedom. We are told that militant Islam has the goal of destroying freedom as we know it and goes by the names, Jihad, Hamas, terrorist, insurgent, Saddam Hussein, Al-Qaeda, bin Laden, al-Zawahiri, etc.
While those may indeed be enemies to our freedom... there is an even more sinister enemy at work within our borders. It's called: the Progressive Caucus, multiculturalism, Hillary's "village", and has names like Ted Kennedy, Charles Rangel, Jesse Jackson, Sarah Brady, and Bill Clinton, among others.
It is Socialism and it's quickly spreading throughout America.
- The individual loses all rights and everything is done in the name of the commonwealth (public) (read - "village"); you are officially the property of the state and not an individual with wants, desires, and needs. There is only the rich and the commonwealth. If you are not rich, then you are a member of the commonwealth. The needs and wants of the rich come before the needs and wants of the commonwealth. In the commonwealth there are no individuals and no one has any rights whatsoever. All decisions in your behalf are made by the state. Your children are the property of the state and it is decided by the state what they will learn, who will teach them, and what will become of them. As a parent, you have little or no say in what becomes of your children, all decisions are made by the government and you accept or become an enemy of the state.
- The government owns and/or controls the basic means of production and distribution of services and goods. We are told that business and other things will be regulated but that we will still be free. Free to do what? They will operate under the illusion of a free enterprise system. All business and land, if not owned by the government or the rich, is controlled and taxed very heavily. What a contradiction of terms. How can anyone have a Socialist form of government with freedom? As stated, in a Socialist form of government the rich rule and have the power, not the people. Consider the actions the government has taken in recent years concerning tobacco, health care, the environment, and the airline industry. Vice President Al Gore promised to make air travel safer and Americans were eager to accept the further erosion of their rights and pay even higher tarifs to government to protect them from an unseen enemy. One lady I recently travelled with told me that she was willing to undergo an extensive selective search of her luggage "if it would make traveling safer." Safer than what? I ask. The Clinton administration took full advantage of the crash of TWA 800 to play on the fears of American travellers. It would seem a foregone conclusion that the airplane was brought down by a terrorist act - regardless of the fact there is no conclusive evidence to date that it was a criminal act. The events of 9/11 only cemented the governments reach into the transportation industry. This heightened state of security at American airports is nothing more than another ploy of the government to further control the airline business and raise another "hidden" tax to pay for it.
- The creation of a federal (Homeland Security & FEMA) or state police force; the purpose of which is to put down disturbances, political or otherwise, "root" out political enemies, ensure the loyalty of the people, and enforce laws upon taxation, population control, religion, the workplace, and the family unit. Consider Clinton's now infamous 100,000 more police officers on the street. Along with the government funded of those officers comes the federal control over how the recipients of the funding are used. Will this new police force be held accountable like the FBI? Attorney General Janet Reno promoted Larry Potts—who coordinated the Waco raid and was censured for his role in the 1992 Ruby Ridge, Idaho, shoot-out -- to deputy director of the FBI.
- The redefining of justice and injustice to better fit the Socialist State.
- The subjection or elimination, generally the latter, of all religious institutions, with the exception of a state approved and mandated religion. This "New World Order" institution will also be used to ensure the loyalty of the people and will be used in the collection of taxes.
The Socialist State cultivated by the Clinton presidency obviously presents a clear and present danger to the traditional American way of life that has been grounded in Judeo-Christian principles. But a much greater danger is on the horizon. This danger is the socialistic serpentine worldwide government that the Scriptures say will emerge in the end times (Rev. 13:7-8). This world empire, based in a reunified Europe, will abrogate the sovereignty of every other nation on the face of the earth. Its government will be run by godless, amoral Humanists who will worship the creation rather than the Creator (Romans. 1:25).
Just some things to think about...view the videos in the VODPOD and see if Hillary's antics fits this article.
NOTE: I do not necessarily agree with the entire article above and the excerpt above should be read in the context of which it was written for the complete "feel". It does, however give me pause...
Elephants never forget, so let's remind Hillary Clinton of her past positions on Iraq and cure her memory loss.
On October 11, 2002, she cast her vote supporting the President's resolution to go to war. She said her vote was cast with the "conviction" that the war authorization "best serves the security of our nation."
Hillary also said that she rejected setting a timetable to withdraw from Iraq. Her exact words:
"I reject a rigid timetable that the terrorists can exploit, and I reject an open timetable that has no ending attached to it." (Associated Press, 12/3/05)

But in recent months and days, Hillary has voted against providing funds to support our troops and their safety. The legislation she voted against provided $1.6 billion for body armor, $2.4 billion to help combat IEDs, and $3 billion for mine resistant vehicles.
And now she is saying that "this is not our fight." She wants to withdraw.
The President and the Republican Party will not forget our commitment to protecting Americans at home and abroad. Neither should Hillary Clinton. Remind her of her past positions and her support of our troops by contacting her here:
