Bill Clinton 'could sabotage' Hillary's run for President as he is 'deeply conflicted'
UK Daily Mail ^ | July 23, 2014 | David Martosko

Bill Clinton doesn't want his wife to win the U.S. presidency, according to sources cited in an explosive new book about the $100 million conglomerate that the Clintons have become since they left the White House. The former president is 'deeply conflicted' about the idea, writes Daniel Halper in 'Clinton Inc.: The Audacious Rebuilding of a Political Machine,' a well-sourced and easy-reading book released Tuesday. A former senior adviser to President Clinton told Halper that if Mrs. Clinton, the presumptive Democratic favorite, should become president, 'Clinton's f***ed.'

Do you think Bill tanked it when Hillary ran in 2008?

Not so much Bill’s sabotage but with the huge Clinton foundation war chest it can be Hillary who decides it will be more enjoyable and easier on her health to run this foundation than to be president. Which is a younger mans game

Bill did spill the beans about Chelsea not being his not to long ago. Of course we had suspected that all along.

I don't like Bill Clinton at all, but I can see why he would not want to go through all this again and then have to be in the media spotlight all over again. Plus he has a new girlfriend.

I can see where he would be very conflicted.

On one hand, he probably really wants to be in the center of power again, flying on AF-One.

On the other hand, since their “marriage” is a sham anyway (more of an alliance really), there is no guarantee she will let him call any of the shots. Once she is POTUS, she may just freeze him out. There is also the matter of his legacy. He probably worries that if she gets in, she will really screw things up. Lastly, he probably still feels superior to her since he was POTUS and she wasn’t. If she is elected, that is gone forever.

Really? I think she looks like both Hillary and him.

Bill? Deeply conflicted about 2016? This is the Clintons BS-machine --propaganda b/c Sure-Thing Hillary screwed up bigtime when she dropped the "dead broke" comment. This latest calculated Clinton pronouncement is indeed a signal that the Clinton's know there's trouble ahead.

Whats' more, running after two terms of a mistake-prone blundering black president is a Sisyphian challenge.

Mainly b/c the Clintons are relying heavily on "white privilege" to get back into office. The Clintons' have benefitted from, and are climbing back into office, using privileges far beyond those of the "community of color" to whom they plan to appeal.

"White privilege" denotes the array of advantages the Clintons have cultivated over years in public office. The gold-plated, endless perks of "white privilege" include:

<><> their personal massive wealth in the $2 billion range....

<><> ownership of multiple homes in posh enclaves....

<><> the chain of high public offices they've held....

<><> privileged friends in high places....

<><> global connections....

<><> constant affirmations of their own worth....

<><> greater social status...

<><> the expansive freedoms wealth and connections provide...

<><> unlimited access to the press to speak freely.....

<><> their memoirs made millions....

<><> Dec 2000 book deal $8 million; 2014 book deal $14 mill....

<><> three tax-exempt Clinton family foundations worth hundreds of millions....

<><> Clinton foundation "endowment" skyrockets to $200 million overnight....

<><> Hillary's $200,000 speeches.......

<><> Bill's tax-paid cushy pensions/benefits....

<><> tax-paid Clinton Library (Hollywood honey Sultan of Brunei a donor).....

<><> Chelsea's paid-for $10 million uber-condo.

2016 Hillary was relying on the "income equality" bugaboo to hoist herself into good a definition of "white privilege" as any.

The Clintons strategy is to label others as "different" while presenting themselves as "normal." The Clinton "normal" is couple billion dollars laying around without having a real job.

The Never-Enough Clintons had planned to run a populist campaign, critical of the Wall Street types”....that's after the world was informed that speaker Hillary was pocketing $200,000 a throw from Goldman Sachs.....and other corporate giants.


WRT Hillary's “dead broke” comment, Bill Clinton said recently the criticism was “fabricated” and “shows you how desperately, sadly we are dependent on a new level of political gossip every week.”

Hah---Bill's whining confirms what we already know---Hillary's calculated "dead broke" lie is haunting her candidacy.

BACKSTORY Hillary calculatedly dropped the "dead broke" comment on ABC-News' Diane Sawyer, saying "how tough life was" (hoping to gain the voters' sympathy): "We came out of the White House not only dead broke, but in debt. “We had no money when we got there, and we struggled to, you know, piece together the resources for mortgages, for houses, for Chelsea’s education. You know, it was not easy."

REALITY CHECK The greedy, mega-wealthy Clintons have money pouring in from everywhere without lifting a finger...said to be worth couple BILLION dollars.

Never-enough Bill/Hillary look to cash in w/ another go-round in the White House. The Clintons owe is pouring into their three tax-exempt foundations......and these donors expect payback.

IMO, i don’t believe he tanked, I just don’t think he put a lot of effort into it in the beginning. They figured she would just be a walk in for the nomination. After South Carolina, it became personal for him. It’s always about him. This time around I think he will tank because he doesn’t want to be in the shadows. His recent feeble attempt to explain away her financial gaffes was telling. Very weak and lackluster effort. I bet he heard plenty about it afterwards.

If Hillary loses, Bill Clinton's ‘power’ and status will evaporate - along with Hillary's and Chelsea's.

The taint of 'loser' will be the last collective memory of the family by the country - and with donors in places like the UAE it will matter. Bill Clinton knows this. He also knows his wife's most important ‘qualification’ for office was her marriage to him.

From that perspective - Bill's right. Hillary should NOT run.

Bill Clinton, First Gentleman?

He may be a first, but he will never be a "gentleman" in my mind.

BACKSTORY Then-Pres Clinton inevitably pursued his own political advantage at the expense of American interests and national security.

Here's just one of the endless examples: the Clintons cupidity is well-documented---shows Clinton and the Democrats took illegal campaign money from groups and individuals tied directly to the Chinese People’s Republican Army. It is therefore not surprising that In January 1998 Clinton went against the advice of then-Secretary of State Warren Christopher and Pentagon experts by lifting long-standing restrictions against the export of American satellites to China for launch on Chinese rockets.

Not only did then-pres Clinton move control over such decisions from the more security-focused State Department to the Commerce Department, but he intervened in a Justice Department investigation of Loral Space & Communications, retroactively enabling Loral to sell critical missile technology to the Chinese.

Interestingly enough, Clinton’s decision was made at the request of Loral CEO Bernard Schwartz, whose earlier $1.3 million campaign donation made him the single biggest contributor to the Democratic election effort.

The result? Democrats got money from satellite companies and from Chinese communists; China got supercomputors, advanced production equipment and missile technology; Loral got its satellites launched at bargain basement prices . . . and the transfer of sensitive missile technology gave China [for the first time] the capability of depositing bombs on American cities.

Incidentally, Loral ultimately failed to benefit from this permanent injury to America’s security interests: in July 2003, the company filed for bankruptcy protection, and in order to raise cash was forced to sell its most profitable business – a fleet of communications satellites orbiting over North America.


WAKE UP-CALL The Clintons have received zillions from the Chi/Coms---we all assumed it was going to their three tax-exempt foundations. Now here's another angle (think money-laundering, and kickbacks).


The Harry Reid connection to the tax-exempt "Clinton Global Initiative" foundation needs to be investigated.


(1) Harry Reid's son Rory is in business w/ the Chi/Coms on a multi-billion dollar solar energy project; Cliven Bundy and his land are standing in the way.

(2) Reports say Bill Clinton recently went to China to panhandle for his tax-exempt "Clinton Global Initiative" foundation.

(3) The "Clinton Global Initiative" (NOT KNOWN for giving out grants)---gave Harry Reid's granddaughter a grant for a Brooklyn, NY theatre she runs (what is a Brooklyn theatre's connection to "global initiatives?")

(4) A Nevada energy company also gave Reid's granddaughter's theatre group a grant.


"Money laundering" comes to mind. Could the Chinese be financing the Reid's solar project through donations to theClinton Foundations....which is then laundered to Reid's granddaughter?


REFERENCE----HARRY REID IS LIVID THAT HIS GRAND-DAUGHTER HAS BEEN OUTED AS A RECIPIENT OF LAUNDERED CAMPAIGN CASH---Reid lashed out at reporters, saying, “My granddaughter has been the target of harassing phone calls, strangers tracking her down, knocking on her door and negative, unwanted attention on the Internet.” “This has gone too far and it needs to stop now,” Reid said. “I deeply regret any role I had in creating this situation but now, as a grandparent, I say enough is enough.”


Besides the "jewelry company" financed by her grandfather, Ryan Elisabeth Reid runs the Sprat Theater Company, a small theater in Brooklyn, which is also coming under scrutiny. According to Sprat’s Theatre Company Web site, it has received grants/contributions from:

<><> the Clinton Global Initiative (connected to global terrorism via Muslim Brotherhood employee),
<><> two major Las Vegas foundations:
Caesar’s Foundation, and the NV Energy Foundation.

NOTE NV Energy Foundation---is a non-profit division of NV Energy (a public utility). The NV Energy utility is a subsidiary of MidAmerican Energy Holdings Company which took over in 2013....and is now owned by a Warren Buffet unit.

BTW, here's Harry w/ his grand-daughter....the one who got $31,000 in laundered campaign funds for her "jewelry company" and grants from Clinton and Nevada energy foundations.

Reid and granddaughter Ryan Elisabeth Reid.

The quote from the article which says it all:

Friends of Bill say in the book that the former president with the wandering eye ‘dreaded’ the idea of going back to the White House in 2017 because he would be ‘trapped’ there, leashed, without room for his libido to run or any meaningful say in government policy.

He would also find his wings clipped – literally losing his ability to jet-set and entertain celebrities nonstop in exotic locales between $750,000 speaking engagements.
