Clinton blames America: Joseph Farah skewers ex-prez for brazen malfeasance ^ | Friday, November 9, 2001 | Joseph Farah

WND Exclusive Commentary
Clinton blames America

© 2001

Why was the World Trade Center destroyed by kamikaze-style Islamic terrorist airline hijackers?

Why did 5,000 American perish Sept. 11?

Why was the Pentagon attacked?

To hear former President Bill Clinton explain it, the United States of America is "paying a price today" for its past sins of slavery and for looking "the other way when a significant number of native Americans were dispossessed and killed."

That's what he told 1,000 students at Georgetown University Wednesday evening, according to news reports.

"This country once looked the other way when a significant number of native Americans were dispossessed and killed to get their land or their mineral rights or because they were thought of as less than fully human," Clinton said. "And we're still paying the price today."

After eight years of Bill Clinton, I guess I shouldn't be surprised by anything. Yet, I've got to tell you, this statement – and its timing – take my breath away. I'm nearly speechless – nearly.

Just a few weeks ago, I recall Jerry Falwell and Pat Robertson being pilloried for suggesting that America needed, as part of an act of contrition over the terrorist attacks, to answer for its past and present sins. There was outrage. People were incensed. How dare they?

And, indeed, their timing could have been better.

But this is the former president of the United States! Indeed, this is the former president, most well-remembered for his well-publicized knack for committing sin without remorse, without confession, without acknowledgement and certainly without repentance.

Now, less than two months after the most dramatic attack on the United States in its history, he is lecturing the American people on their collective guilt. He does this in full view of the whole world, including our enemies.

What on earth does America's history with slavery and Indian atrocities have to do with Islamic terrorism in the 21st century? Only Bill Clinton sees a connection.

I guess he doesn't realize that slavery still exists today throughout much of the Islamic world. I guess he doesn't realize that our enemies in this war still persecute and kill indigenous peoples. And I guess he doesn't realize his own personal and political culpability for the tragic events of Sept. 11.

If Bill Clinton knew America had it coming, why didn't he do anything to warn the country? Why didn't he do anything to prevent it?

Let's recall the climate Bill Clinton created upon taking office in 1993.

In an unprecedented action, he fired every U.S. attorney in the country, replacing them all with his own political appointees. He brought in Janet Reno as attorney general, who would personally supervise the incineration and massacre of innocent men, women and children at a church in Waco, Texas. He hired as FBI director, Louis Freeh. The FBI issued a report, on Clinton's watch, explaining that the No. 1 terrorist threat facing America came from right-wing Christians, not Islamists.

After the Oklahoma City bombing, his FBI ignored evidence of a link to Osama bin Laden. After the downing of TWA Flight 800, his FBI ignored the overwhelming eyewitness evidence of a missile attack on the civilian airliner. That's because Bill Clinton saw only one threat to his own political ambitions – and that threat came from the right in the form of a vast conspiracy.

He coddled the Taliban in Afghanistan, pouring U.S. taxpayer aid into that corrupt, oppressive and backward regime. His hand-picked "Bin Laden Task Force" missed opportunities to take out the terrorist who would wreak so much havoc on this country. The FBI had more important priorities – looking under every bed in America for a member of the vast, right-wing conspiracy.

I do agree with Bill Clinton on one thing: America does have some things to reflect on, some sins of the past for which we will be forced to pay over and over again, some transgressions that are unexplainable, horrible, unimaginable.

And none of those errors can top the fact that we as a nation – we as a people – elected this grotesque caricature to the highest office in the land.

These 2 are socialist communist from the get go. They have done more damage to this country in 8 years than anyone has in 200. Now we are under attack because of these 2. And coked up Billy just sealed his fate with those words. He will be protested 100 times more than before and this won't be just FReepers. This will be everyone. I feel sorry for anyone who voted him in office. Charge him with treason.

bill clinton prefers biting lips to beating with sticks

At the end of his speech, Mr. Clinton -- who was impeached for lying under oath about a sexual relationship with a 21-year-old White House intern -- said the entire issue revolves around "the nature of truth."

"This battle fundamentally is about what you think about the nature of truth," he said, noting that God has imposed on us the inability to ever know "the whole truth."

He also championed women's rights in Afghanistan, saying the reason "you see all those sanctimonious guys beating those women with sticks" is because the country's rulers demand strict adherence to the rules.

Clinton calls terror a U.S. debt to past

Just look around this chamber. We have members from virtually every racial, ethnic, and religious background. And America is stronger for it. But as we have seen, these differences all too often spark hatred and division, even here at home. . . This is not the American way. We must draw the line. Without delay, we must pass the Hate Crimes Prevention Act and the Employment Non-Discrimination Act. And we should reauthorize the Violence Against Women Act.

bill clinton, State of Union Speech, January 27, 2000

"I'm sorry, but the president is one of the crudest men I have ever encountered in government service," says one female agent. "He has no respect for women."

Among the comments clinton made in presence of Secret Service agents:

. Frequent speculation on the oral sex skills of women
the president saw or met in receiving lines;

. References to the size of a woman's breasts, legs or figure;

. Sexual jokes.

After the Monica Lewinsky story broke, however, clinton toned down his rhetoric and behavior in front of his Secret Service agents, but those who guarded the president say enough of them saw and heard things which could be damaging to clinton.

"It depends on who Ken Starr calls," says one ex-agent. "The people who are on the job today are not necessarily the ones who know the most."

Turnover In clinton's Secret Service Detail 'Highest That Anyone Can Remember'

In the months that follow, reporters drop the issue. Feminists say little or nothing. Rape crisis center workers acknowledge that Broaddrick's case, including her reluctance to come forward, is typical of victims of sexual assault. But they decline to speak against clinton. Some cite the federal funding they receive as a result of the Violence Against Women Act, which was signed into law by clinton.

Why does the press continue to ignore the Juanita Broaddrick story?

The Placebo President:
How a Rapist can be a Policy Feminist
placebo effect n.
A beneficial effect in a patient following a particular treatment
that arises from the patient's expectations concerning
the treatment rather than from the treatment itself.
Every woman adores a Fascist,
The boot in the face, the brute
Brute heart of a brute like you.
----Sylvia Plath
The placebo effect immediately came to mind
as I listened to Shelby Steele,
a research fellow at the Hoover Institution,
debunk the following pernicious spin intended to save clinton.
To wit:
A proven felon and utter reprobate can remain president;
clinton can be a failed human being but a good president.
The error in these statements arises, says Steele,
from the belief that
virtuousness is separate from personal responsibility
so that one's virtuousness as an individual is determined by
one's political positions on issues rather than on
whether or not in one's personal life there is a
consistency and a responsibility.
Steele's contention is that this compartmentalization,
rather than being the amazing advantage
the clintons would have us believe,
in fact, spills toxicity into, corrupts, the culture.
If mere identification with good policies is what makes one virtuous
then those policies become, what Steele calls, iconographic,
that is to say they just represent virtuousness.
They don't necessarily do virtuous things.
If clinton's semantic parsing strips meaning from our words,
clinton's iconographic policies strip meaning from our society,
systematically deconstructing our society as a democracy. . .
I would take Shelby Steele's thesis one step further.
I maintain that iconographic policy functions like a placebo,
producing a real, physiological and social effects.
The placebo effect is, after all, the brain's triumph over reality.
Expectation alone can produce powerful physiological results.
The placebo effect was, at one time, an evolutionary advantage:
act now, think later
bill clinton is the paradigmatic Placebo President.
Placebo is Latin for "I shall please."
And please he does
doling out sham treatments, iconographs, with abandon.
To please, to placate, to numb, to deflect.
Ultimately to showcase his imagined virtue.
Or to confute his genuine vice.
clinton will dispense sugar pills (or bombs)
at the drop of a high-heeled shoe...
or at the hint of high treason...
clinton's charlatanry mimics that of primitive medicine.
Through the 1940s, doctors had little effective medicine to offer
so they deliberately attempted to induce the placebo response.
The efficaciousness of today's medicines
does not diminish the power of the placebo.
A recent review of placebo-controlled studies
found that placebos and genuine treatments
are often equally effective.
If you expect to get better, you will.
Which brings me back to the original question:
Can clinton be a failed human being but a good president?
Clearly he cannot.
These two propositions are mutually exclusive.
clinton's fundamental failure is a complete lack of integrity.
He has violated his covenant with the American people.
Because clinton has destroyed his moral authority as a leader,
he can no longer function even as a quack;
the placebo effect is gone.
And so the Placebo President must now go, too.

Bill Clinton may not be the worst president America has had, but surely he is the worst person to be president.

[COMMENT: Certainly 9-11 has removed all doubt for George Will regarding the former assessment and compulsive clinton CYA-ing following 9-11 has done nothing to dispel the latter.]

There is reason to believe that he is a rapist ("You better get some ice on that," Juanita Broaddrick says he told her concerning her bit lip), and that he bombed a country to distract attention from legal difficulties arising from his glandular life, and that. ... Furthermore, the bargain that he and his wife call a marriage refutes the axiom that opposites attract. Rather, she, as much as he, perhaps even more so, incarnates Clintonism

---GEORGE WILL, Sleaze, the sequel

The rape took place while Bill was running for governor. Hillary came bursting into the room to talk to two people, one of whom I personally know. She said "You won't believe what this &^%$#@#$%^ did now. He tried to rape some b*tch."

It was the job of these two to squelch the story.

Where's the outrage?

This ridiculous and out of touch rant would be laughed at and lampooned if made by anyone on the right.

Do you get the implication? As if Clinton's ridiculous USA-loathing diatribe justifies the NAACP's truck dragging ad back during the campaign!! Was that the intent? Do President Bush's high poll numbers suggest that black voters are softening against him, and plantation owner Clinton had to step in to reclaim the loyalty of his slaves?

To understand the refractory nature and depth of clinton psychopathy, it is especially instructive to parse the following:

He also championed women's rights in Afghanistan, saying the reason "you see all those sanctimonious guys beating those women with sticks" is because the country's rulers demand strict adherence to the rules.

By creating a causal connection between 'abuse of women' and 'requiring strict adherence to the rules' while, at the same time, promoting himself as some sort of champion of women's rights, clinton, with an equal dose of dementia and legerdemain, justifies his own wanton disregard of "the rules" as he transmutes his rapes of women and country into a bizarrely patriotic brand of feminism.

We're waist deep in the Big Muddy
And the big fool says to push on.
--Pete Seeger
The halls of fame are open wide
And they are always full;
Some go in by the door called "push,"
And some by the door called "pull."
John Sununu is Dan Quayle's new brain.-
--Maureen Dowd, 11/15, Trouble in Mind
The alleged brain trust, Quayle-Sununu
seems less transplant than graft:
a pushme-pullyou,
a phantasmagoric composite,
a Chimera,
a visual joke more hilarious than the Porsche Boxter.
The underlying theory, I suppose, is that
Sununu's (self-described) genius
and Quayle's (self-evident) political judgment
will somehow combine synergistically
to produce a brain worthy of the presidency.
(Is presidential brains really on this electorate's collective mind?)
But what assurances are there
that the resultant brain won't be
Sununu's political judgment and Quayle's intellect?
After all,
prior attempts at presidential brain surgery
have proven less than brilliant.
You will recall that, as recently as 1996,
The New York Times insisted that
bill clinton undergo the surgical procedure;
its endorsement of clinton was predicated
on clinton undergoing a partial brain transplant:
specifically of the Character Lobe.
clinton assured us immediately (if tacitly)
that this would be done post haste (or was it post chaste?),
that whatever crimes he never did, he would never do again.
If brain surgery was ever performed on clinton,
it has produced no discernible improvement.
Perhaps our approach to the problem
of deficient presidential brains
is itself wrong-headed;
that the problem is ultimately
a problem of deficient electorate brains.
Voters would be wise to heed
the old roadside ad:
Don't lose
Your head
To gain a minute
You need your head
Your brains are in it.


Don't lose
Your head
To gain a minute
You need your head
Your brains are in it.
--an old roadside ad, Pushme-Pullyou

This impeached rapist should be hiding his head in shame, if any administration is responsible it's the corrupt sleazebag Clinton administration. When I heard this my first thought was, "Just when you think Clintoon can't sink any lower, he pulls this".

The bum ought to be brought up on treason charges!!! Imagine if Herbert Hoover had given a speech in 1941 blaming Pearl Harbor on the unfairness suffered by Japaneese immigrants during the 19th century. It's the same idea at work here.

Any orginization that would have this dirt-bag speak before them, should be boycotted!!!!!
