A Little History Review

Another case study in hypocrisy and double standards.

As Democrats demand hearings in the wake of seven US attorneys being fired and call for the resignation of US Attorney General Gonzalez, let's go back to the beginning of Clinton's administration.

We should not forget that Bill Clinton’s first act as president was to fire all the U.S attorneys across the U.S. – an unprecedented act by an American president.

At the time, critics of the president linked the firing to an effort to stave off the prosecution of House Ways and Means Committee chairman Dan Rostenkowski.

But the real truth became clearer as the scandal known as Whitewater unfolded.

The real reason Clinton fired every U.S. attorney was to save himself, not Rostenkowski.

As we now know, the U.S. attorney in Little Rock was closing in on Clinton for Whitewater-related matters and his and Hillary’s involvement in the defrauding of the Small Business Administration.

Clinton’s replacement for U.S. attorney in Little Rock was Paula Casey, a former law school student of his. She did much to protect her patron.

Clinton carried much criminal baggage before he arrived at the White House, and his administration soon opened his luggage to create an administration in his image: the most corrupt in American history.

Clinton is no dummy; he knew the Justice Department would be his Achilles’ heel.

This is precisely why he sacked all the U.S. attorneys.

This is why he put his "best" friend, convicted felon Webster Hubbell, over at Justice as associate attorney general.

This is why his administration secretly sabotaged the nominations of Zoe Baird and Kimba Wood to make way for Janet Reno, the prosecutor from Miami Vice who had almost a perfect record of never prosecuting white-collar criminals or politicians.

This is why he fired FBI Director William Sessions in an unprecedented and sudden act the day before Vince Foster was found with a bullet hole in his head in Fort Marcy Park.

This is why he had Janet Reno hand-pick Robert Fiske as Whitewater special counsel – a man who as U.S. attorney in New York never found one politician who had committed a crime.

This is why he accepted Robert Fiske’s recommendation of Louis Freeh as the FBI director.

This is why he consented as Freeh quickly removed, retired or transferred out the entire executive committee of assistant FBI directors in a most effective coup d’etat that got no press ink.

No doubt Clinton knew that by controlling the Justice Department and the FBI, he and his administration would have a free hand.

So powerful was Clinton’s control over the judicial and law enforcement apparatus of the country, the communist Chinese could illegally funnel more than $10 million to help his 1996 re-election campaign.

At the same time, the president could give away the most guarded secrets of our nation to China, an avowed enemy, including supercomputer technology to build nuclear weapons and ballistic missile technology – technology that now allows China’s missiles to hit our cities with pinpoint accuracy.

And all of this could be done in silence and with the complicity of the highest officials in the land.

You have echoed my thoughts and words with your accurate facts. Vince Foster wass muredered, Brown the same. It is a miracle Moncia is above ground and the media loves him. And PResident Rodham is no idiot. They are politically savy and not afraid to take out any opposition as you pointed out so well. Great post

Excellent, excellent post, AC!

You have hit the corrupted, evil, hypocritical nail on the head!

Democrats are insisting that government be kept free of politics.

It sounds good, anyway.

Wonder when they'll begin practicing what they preach.

Democrats would invent a scandal even if there was none. They want revenge for Clinton's impeachment.

Btw, I added you to my blogroll and wrote about this blog in this post,

Hmmm, must be the one crime that Gingrich didn't have the sex pervert Ken Starr investigate.

Oh well, it's all been downhill since the Foster murder. Get the straight dope ...Jerry Falwell is still pushing the tapes for $19.95, all proceeds go to the Women's Studies department at Liberty University.

Paybacks a bitch, huh folks?

You know what bothers me most? No matter how often this government is revealed to be foul and corrupt to the core you right wing clowns still want to yammer on about Clinton.

You just can't bring yourself to admit how corrupt this crew is (and I know Dems are corrupt, that's the difference between us). Why? I have no idea. Really, all I can come up with is that the far right religious think this is their last hope to defeat the "homosexual agenda" (LMFAO) and they'll let the nation go down the toilet rather than give up on the "traditional values" chimera no matter how long they are played for suckers.

ducky says "No matter how often this government is revealed to be foul and corrupt to the core you right wing clowns still want to yammer on about Clinton."


Exactly the same thing you leftards kept yammering about Reagan and the contra affair. Of course, after he died, you tried rewriting him as a Democrat.

Paybacks a bitch, huh?

Sonia..thanks for stopping by and brightening up the visuals.
I will be adding your site as well.

This is fairly typical of the media.

I am glad to see that Sonia's site has some familiar readers other than Steve and Mr B

Nice post AC.

Actually I am amazed that Bill Clinton isnt President Bush's biggest supporter. He knows exactly what Bush is going through.

Of course, Hillary is still politically active and his boat is tied to her's.

fn..If Hillary's boat is still tied to her husbands, I can only hope his boat is actually an Ohio Class Ballistic Missile Submarine.

Good points there!

And the list goes on and on. But let GWB "do something," and the Dems cry "Foul!"

Good post! I never knew about Clinton's Chinese connection and also how many attorneys HE fired.

The Dems need to take heed and you know what they say about those who live in glass houses.

This is another 'storm in a teacup' non-issue.

Good post.

The Democratic Party has put itself in an untenable position. They promised the American people to have our troops home but President Bush has increased the number of troops in Iraq.
The Democrats know they cannot deliver on their promises so now instead of trying to work with fellow Republicans, they're diverting attention away by challenging presidential powers knowing full well a decision wouldn't be reached until well into the next president's term.
Sad

 
At 1:41 PM, Blogger Mr. Ducky said...

Can anyone name a time when U.S. Attorney's weren't removed when the presidency changed parties?

Bush II removed them all. It's standard procedure.

However mid term is a different story. There have been very few in the last 30 years. Fewer than Chimperella's recent purge.

What does it all mean? Nothing yet, but the bleating from the right and the bogus talking points indicate you are very defensive for some reason.

Good post!

About the seven folks fired, I don't see the big deal. Unless someone has some evidence of corruption, please stop with the whole conspiracy masturbation. I don't have any inside knowledge and I don't care if Bush fired 7 or 17 of these guys. You can stop your hysterical fantasy of imputing secret knowledge to your political opponents any day now.
