The President, First Lady, and Chelsea on parade down Pennsylvannia Avenue on Inauguration day.
It is down, essentially, to two people in the U. S. Presidential election and there is one candidate that the elites and mainstream news media seem to basically hate, that is Donald Trump, and one candidate that the elites and media love and that is Hillary Clinton. One starts to say to themselves when turning on the news, “lets see the ‘What is the latest terrible thing has Donald Trump done / said now’ news”. Meanwhile Hillary Clinton is fine. There is an excellent book written by a top-level investigative reporter however that has a thing or two to say about that. The book is about Bill Clinton but she has been joined at the hip to him so it has implications for her too. It is called The Secret Life of Bill Clinton (1997), written by Ambrose Evans-Pritchard, who was the Washington bureau chief of the Sunday Telegraph, a large British broadsheet newspaper.
According to White House secretary Mike McCurry, Evans-Pritchard has been “the origin of every major Clinton scandal story”. Apparently the mainstream news media was too busy admiring Bill Clinton to report the truth about him. At the beginning of his book, Mr. Evans-Pritchard said that he did not harbor animosity toward Bill and Hillary when he assumed his position at the Telegraph in Washington, as Clinton was first elected President. Before he became President, Bill Clinton was governor of Arkansas. Evans-Pritchard stated when one scratched beneath the surface, one learned things. He wrote:
“You learn that Bill Clinton grew up in the Dixie Mafia stronghold of Hot Springs, and that his brother was a drug dealer with ties to the Medellin Cartel. You learn that a cocaine distributor named Dan Lasater was an intimate friend, and that Lasater’s top aide would later be given a post in charge of administration (and drug testing) at the White House. You learn that Arkansas was a mini-Columbia within the United States, infested by narco-corruption.”
This was the Arkansas of Bill and Hillary Clinton that Evans-Pritchard was speaking about. He also commented on how Clinton politicized, corrupted law enforcement while the mainstream news media informed essentially no one about this.
“In Washington, Clinton moved with ruthless efficiency to take control of the federal machinery of coercion. While the U. S. watchdog press barked and howled with pitiful irrelevance about Clinton’s $200 hair cut, he quietly fired every U.S. Attorney in the country and then made his move on the FBI, which would be transformed gradually, one appointment at a time, into a replica of the Arkansas State Police. When he sacked William Sessions in July 1993, it was the first time in American history that a president had summarily dismissed an FBI director.”
Evans-Pritchard deals with the Clinton corruption of law enforcement when his volume also covers Bill Clinton’s involvement of the cover-up of the murder of Vince Foster, the highest-ranking White House official to die under suspicious circumstances since JFK. I plan another post on Mr. Evans-Pritchard excellent book.
