Hillary's Secret War
by Richard Poe
|"Hillary Clinton is one of the most important political players in the last decade, and she's been nothing but trouble. Hillary's Secret War by Richard Poe is required reading."
Bestselling author of Treason, Slander and High Crimes and Misdemeanors
| "Hillary's Secret War chronicles the lonely battle many of us waged to expose Clinton corruption. As one who took part in that struggle, I am impressed by the accuracy and insight of Richard Poe's account. He has brought to life a shameful chapter of American history that Big Media tried to bury."

| "Hillary's Secret War is not just an indictment of a woman now sitting in the U.S. Senate. It is an exposé of an authoritarian mindset that longs to regain power, and will stop at nothing to achieve its objective."
From the Preface

Founder and Editor of WorldNetDaily.com
| "Hillary's Secret War by Richard Poe is the first book I've read that really pulls together the story of the Internet underground during the Clinton years. This story has never been told before. The secret war is still going on. Hillary knows she can't get back in the White House unless she shuts us down first. We know the storm is coming, and we're getting ready for it."

ON FEBRUARY 11, 1998, Hillary Clinton told reporters that the Internet needed an "editing" or "gatekeeping" function. The World Wide Web was out of control, she said. It needed to be reined in. Hillary neglected to mention at the press conference that she had already been waging a secret war to silence Internet dissidents for the last four years.
From her own War Room in the White House, Hillary commanded a secret police operation dedicated to suppressing evidence of Clinton crimes. "Hillary is not merely an aider and abettor to this secret police operation. She has been its prime instigator and organizer," wrote the late Barbara Olson in her 1999 book Hell to Pay. Mrs. Olson was in a position to know. A former federal prosecutor, she served as Chief Investigative Counsel for the House Government Reform and Oversight Committee, which probed Hillary's role in the Travelgate and Filegate scandals in 1995 and 1996.
Hillary's Secret War tells the story of a group of rebel journalists on the Web who defied an outlaw White House; endured government repression; exposed unspeakable treason at the pinnacle of power and helped change the course of the 2000 election. Their tale has never before been told.
The Battle Ahead
As we approach the presidential election of 2004, the New Underground -- the growing network of dissident journalists on cable TV, talk radio and the Internet -- has grown ever more crucial to the battle for America's soul.
When the U.S. Supreme Court upheld the McCain-Feingold Act on December 10, 2003, the court awarded Big Media corporations what amounts to a government-enforced monopoly over political speech 60 days before any general election. No independent group may air political ads over radio or television during those 60 days. Big Media corporations, on the other hand, may speak freely and promote whatever candidates they wish on their news and talk shows right up to the day of the election.
The Supreme Court thus bestowed enormous political power on major media and on the multibillion-dollar transnational corporations that own them. Nevertheless, the Internet remains free -- at least for the time being. In the months and years ahead, the World Wide Web will be a hard-fought battleground on which America's future will, in large measure, be determined.
Hillary's Secret War tells the story of the flagship Web sites of the New Underground, such as DrudgeReport.com; NewsMax.com; WorldNetDaily.com and FreeRepublic.com, and of the cyberjournalists who built them. Learn how these modern-day Tom Paines and Ben Franklins mastered a new technology, the Internet; how they built a New Media from the ground floor; and how these cyber-patriots continue today to challenge the power of Big Media in the age of the blogosphere.
Here is the inside story of the Web sites and cyberjournalists who helped change history, a tale of courage, sacrifice, ingenuity and patriotism ñ one of the greatest untold stories in the annals of journalism.
Whoa, Jim. That's tellin' her.
