"HILLARY'S SECRET POLICE"
This isn't really germane to today's news, but I wanted to post it for anyone who's still unfamiliar with the depths of Clinton-hate in this country. It's an interview (in David Horowitz's Front Page Magazine) with Richard Poe, author of Hillary's Secret War. An excerpt:
Poe: The operations of Hillary’s secret police have been copiously documented, to the point where the topic can hardly be called controversial any longer.
During the Clinton years, journalists who probed too deeply into Clinton scandals ran terrible risks. Journalists were beaten, wiretapped, framed on criminal charges, fired and blacklisted. They experienced burglaries, IRS audits, smear campaigns and White-House-orchestrated lawsuits.
Some may have paid the ultimate price. In February, 1998, just as the Clinton impeachment was gathering steam, Sandy Hume, the 28-year-old son of Fox News anchorman Brit Hume, suddenly turned up dead of a gunshot to the head. He was covering the U.S. Congress for the magazine The Hill, and was known for his excellent sources among Republican insiders. Sandy Hume supposedly committed suicide, but friends and associates have questioned the official story.
...Many of these people are still in place, and still doing the Clintons’ dirty work. I call them the Shadow Team.
FP: How does Hillary fit into all this?
Poe: Hillary is the muscle end of the Clinton mafia. It was she who organized and led the Shadow Team. Her role as White House enforcer was first revealed by the late Barbara Olson....
Odd that such a vast criminal enterprise has gone utterly unchecked, despite endless investigations of the Clintons (Ken Starr, "a timid bureaucrat, afraid of his own shadow, ... shrank from investigating any of the truly serious Clinton scandals," Poe says), and despite the fact that the husband of the now-departed writer who uncovered the enterprise is now the solicitor general of the United States. And odd that the person Poe blames is not the man who was President when all of this evil allegedly took place, but the person in his circle who is believed (by right-wingers) to pose the greatest political threat to GOP hegemony now.
But why am I even rebutting this? These people are nuts.
And David Horowitz gives this Poe guy a forum. Remember that the next time you see him slithering up to a college campus with his quota scheme for conservatives, aka the "Academic Bill of Rights."
One more thing from the interview: Unitl I read it, I wasn't aware of this:
J.J. Johnson’s SierraTimes.com acted as a central command post for Operation Truckstop 2000 – a nationwide, general trucking strike that would have gone into effect had Gore succeeded in stealing the election.
And it's true -- or at least that was the plan:
Operation Truck Stop 2000-11/25/2000
There are plans in the works for a nation-wide halt of trucking on December 18, 2000 as a protest against what some people are calling the theft of the 2000 election.
J.J. Johnson, Editor-in-Chief of the Sierra Times wrote a call to action on his website that laid the foundation for this protest. Fearing America has been taken over by Gore, Johnson has asked not only over-the-road trucker to cease driving, but he has also encouraged the rest of the country to call in sick with the "flu."
...It is quite possible that this election free-for-all could lead to martial law. Johnson feels Clinton could easily clamp down on the country. The chances that some groups will resort to bloodshed are greater every day. Sources blame a growing restlessness and fear about what is to come.
Although Johnson does not advocate violence of any sort, he certainly concedes that some groups may use serious means to stop what they see as a coup d'etat....
Like I said -- nuts.
