Clinton: ‘Norms have changed for what you can do to somebody against their will’

 

While the events of the day have overtaken Bill Clinton’s latest view on the #Me Two Movement and the removal of Al Franken – supporting Franken in the full interview, this one tidbit below should not go without notice. The unhappy looking sidekick in the form of the real author of the so called Clinton novel, flails desperately at times to bail out his Kemosabe. The Lone Ranger rides again.

 

 

It’s probably time for Bill Clinton to stop doing interviews.

The former president has come under fire once again for comments he made during a recent sit-down — this time noting how “norms have changed in terms of what you can do to somebody against their will.”

Clinton made the controversial statement while speaking to PBS Newshour about the resignation of former Senator Al Franken last year following his sexual misconduct scandal.

“I assume you think that what happened with you was more serious than what happened with [Franken],” host Judy Woodruff asked Clinton. “He was driven from office, from the US Senate. So, norms have changed. Do you think that’s a good thing?”

“Well, in general, I think it’s a good thing, yes,” replied the former president.

“I think it’s a good thing that we should all have higher standards,” he said. “I think the norms have really changed in terms of, what you can do to somebody against their will, how much you can crowd their space, make them miserable at work.”

Clinton added, “You don’t have to physically assault somebody to make them, you know, uncomfortable at work or at home or in their other — just walking around. That, I think, is good.”

NBC Interview blind sides Bill Clinton with Lewinsky questions

Adding another post for today… first time media takes on the Clintons.  Mika on Morning Joe thought it was time for the Clintons to go away. Good idea. Bill was out there spinning another book and thought he was in for an easy interview apparently. Enjoy the clip. I added Mika’s take on it.

 

Former President Bill Clinton insisted in a weekend interview that he doesn’t owe a personal apology to Monica Lewinsky, the former White House intern whose adult life has been defined by their inappropriate sexual affair and the global scrutiny that followed.

‘No,’ he told NBC in an interview airing Monday on the ‘Today’ show. ‘I do not – I have never talked to her. But I did say publicly on more than one occasion that I was sorry.’

‘I apologized to everybody in the world,’ Clinton said, implying that was enough.

And the flustered former president, more famous for his Don Juan-like seductions than for his policy legacy, portrayed himself, not Lewinsky, as history’s victim in the mass-media’s retelling of the 1990s saga.

 

 

Thousands of Docs discovered showing ‘pay to play’ between State Dept and Clinton Foundation

 

An attorney for Trump, Jay Sekulow announced Wednesday the American Center for Law and Justice uncovered thousands of documents showing Clinton Foundation pay-to-play with Hillary’s State Department through a FOIA lawsuit.

Clinton’s E-mails Won’t be released until 2025? That’s what they say in the post without explanation. Justin Cooper and Doug Band are two names that pop up in the story. Back in 2016 I did numerous posts on these two fellows and I believed that they were the ones likely to sing. This info was out years ago, and common knowledge yet the Clintons skated. Until now. It will be something to see the IG report that is on its way out.

If you read nothing else, do read a story at New Republic a wonderfully written piece that reads like a novel, done in 2013. Titled Scandal at Clinton Inc. This sets the stage for what happens over the next years.

 

First the news then some links.  Here we go:

Doug Band was the ‘go-to’ guy for Clinton Foundation donors. If they needed anything from Hillary Clinton, they would email Doug Band and within minutes he would forward the message to Huma Abedin and or Cheryl Mills to help expedite the favor.

There was no firewall between the State Department and the Clinton Foundation as Hillary previously claimed to the public.

Via the ACLJ:

As part of our Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) lawsuit against the Deep State Department, we have been informed that the State Department has located – and will be forced to turn over to the ACLJ – literally thousands of documents to and about the Clinton Foundation, its subsidiaries, and its senior operatives during the duration of Hillary Clinton’s time as Secretary of State.

The shear volume alone – some 30,000 emails – debunks the specious assertion that there was any kind of firewall whatsoever between Clinton’s State Department and the Clinton Foundation.

These documents, only now being uncovered through our FOIA request and subsequent litigation, show extensive communications exchanged between Clinton or her senior staff at State Department and Doug Band – a senior aid at the Clinton Foundation and creatorof the Clinton Global Initiative (CGI).

In recent court filings, the State Department has revealed that more than 8,700 documents exist in Cheryl Mills’ and/or Huma Abedin’s files which contain the single search term, “Doug Band.” It is possible, and indeed likely, that each document consists of several pages placing the number closer to 18,000 pages or more.

The ACLJ has also learned through our litigation that another 22,000 documents exist in Cheryl Mills’ and Huma Abedin’s files (not including attachments) mentioning or referring to the Clinton Foundation or a related term referencing the foundation.

Snip…

An email dated December 6, 2010 (tucked away at the very end of the State Department’s most recent production) reveals that Secretary Clinton, upon receiving information that we now know to be classified from a State Department employee, forwarded the classified information via her private email account (HDR22@clintonemail.com) on to various individuals outside the State Department including senior associates at the Clinton Foundation – Justin Cooper and Doug Band. She writes in her email to “print for Bill.”

Of course most of the information contained in the email has been redacted (and won’t be unclassified until 2025) H/T: The Gateway Pundit

A few earlier posts:

Doug Band reveals Clinton Foundation Inc ‘For Profit’ activity

Earlier I had posted Huma Abedin, Bill Clinton’s Butt boy Band’s new Emails will take the Clintons down? In the post, it gave a close look at the relationship of Doug Band and Bill Clinton and the Company Teneo.

In the latest email batch, Doug Band also revealed that Chelsea’s husband Marc Mezvinsky had abused the Clinton Foundation’s influence, and his wife’s family name, to help him find sources of cash for his hedge fund, Eaglevale, which included such seed sponsors as Goldman Sachs CEO Lloyd Blankfein.

Will Bill Clinton’s Butt Boys Cooper and Band take down the Clinton Empire?– bunkerville 

There are two FBI Clinton investigations. One regarding the E-MAIL. But the more important one that may snag them is the one that is looking at their Foundation. Huma Abedin, Doug Band, and Justin Cooper will be the new names that will come to the fore with the company Teneo Holdings. That is a name of a company one wants to keep an eye on. Its claim on the company webpage is “Integrated Counsel for a Borderless World.” I am suggesting the intersection of the Clinton’s machinations. Yesterday we looked at Justin Cooper. Forget Hillary Clinton. Is it Bill Clinton in the cross hairs of the FBI? Today we look at Douglas Band. Both worked for Bill Clinton in a similar capacity as Huma Abedin does for Hillary. Known in common parlance as “Butt Boys.” Will do whatever needed, starting with carrying bags and slowly rising to power.

Bill Clinton gets man freed from Iranian jail, money flows to the Foundation

Just before an Iranian-American businessman was freed from jail in Iran in Oct. 2010, his son met with Bill Clinton and also made the first of what would become more than $1 million in donations to the Clinton Foundation.

Sources tell The Daily Caller that Nima Taghavi, who owns businesses in California, grew impatient in 2010 with negotiations to secure his father Reza’s release from an Iranian prison, and so he turned to the former president for help.

To arrange the meeting with Clinton, Taghavi first contacted Doug Band, who worked as Clinton’s “body man,” has counseled the Clinton Foundation, and co-founded Teneo Holdings, a consulting group that Clinton advised.

With Weiner unemployed, Abedin took a second job as a consultant for Teneo Holdings, a phenomenally well-connected global consulting company. Clinton signed off on Abedin’s dual role, but a State Department investigator last year subpoenaed records about the arrangement. (Snip)….

The interviewers didn’t laugh when the meticulously organized political attaché and Hillaryland survivor disingenuously suggested she has never looked at any of the more than 10,000 emails of hers now helpfully indexed online by WikiLeaks.

“It’s something I can’t really think about,” she said airily, resorting to a tactic straight from her boss’s stonewall playbook. “But I can’t imagine what’s in those emails. I would probably be mortified.”

Clintons Waco Slaughter April 19th, 1993 – 25th Anniversary

 

For today’s Saturday’s “whatever happened”  I will give you the 25th anniversary of the Waco slaughter this week.

On April 19, 1993, the F.B.I. finished off its siege of the Branch Davidians’ home just outside Waco, Texas, by pumping poisonous and flammable C.S. gas into a room filled with women and children, driving a tank through the wall, throwing incendiary devices at the survivors. Who and what started the fire has been in dispute.

Surly there was a better way than to slaughter men, women and children, more than 80. And the Clinton’s managed to get by without any MSM condemnation, blaming it all on his Attorney General who got by without a nick and later ran for Governor of Florida. Waco and Ruby Ridge are what were the sentinel moments in our nation’s conscience. A Government could turn on its people. The story of the shadowy figure called Hillary Clinton and her role in all of this is included.

 

 

 

 

 

The Waco siege was a siege of a compound belonging to the religious group Branch Davidians by American federal and Texas state law enforcement and military between February 28 and April 19, 1993. The group was suspected of weapons violations and a search and arrest warrant was obtained by the ATF. The incident began when the ATF attempted to raid the ranch. An intense gun battle erupted, resulting in the deaths of four agents and six Branch Davidians. Upon the ATF’s failure to raid the compound, a siege was initiated by the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI), the standoff lasting 51 days. Eventually, the FBI launched an assault and initiated a tear gas attack in an attempt to force the Branch Davidians out. During the attack, a fire engulfed Mount Carmel Center and 76 people.

According to Linda Tripp it was Hillary and not Bill Clinton who directed the final assault on Waco.

Mrs Clinton grew more and more impatient as the Waco stand-off came to dominate the headlines during the early months of the Clinton administration, said Bell. It was she, according to Bell’s sources, who pressured a reluctant Janet Reno to act.

“Give me a reason not to do this,” Reno is said to have begged aides shortly before orders were issued for the final assault.

During an interview in early February 2001 the former White House aide alleged that Hillary Clinton pressured the late Vincent Foster to resolve the Waco standoff. As a result more than eighty men, women and children were killed. Appearing on CNN’s “Larry King Live” Tripp suggested that Foster, at Mrs Clinton’s direction, transmitted the order to move on the Branch Davidian’s Waco compound, which culminated in a military style attack on the wooden building.

Her accusations lend weight to charges made previously by Special Forces expert and Waco investigator, Steve Barry. According to the former Special Forces member, Hillary set up a special “crises centre” in the White House to deal with Waco. Serving with her in the centre was Vincent Foster who, according to his widow was subsequently: “fuelled by horror at the carnage at Waco for which the White House had ultimately been responsible.”

Foster himself was found dead, from a gun-shot wound to the head, in a Virginia park three months later. Could he have known too much about Waco?

Journalist Ambrose Evans-Pritchard maintains that Foster had been “drafting a letter involving Waco” on the very day of his death. Moreover Evans-Pritchard says that Foster kept a Waco file in a locked cabinet that was off-limits to everyone, including his secretary.

Prior to Waco, Foster was “dignified, decent, caring, smart” says Linda Tripp; in its aftermath though, she said: “…Vince was falling apart.”

She was with the former White House deputy counsel when the news about Waco broke on television. “A special bulletin came on showing the atrocity at Waco and the children. And his face, his whole body slumped, and his face turned white, and he was absolutely crushed – knowing the part he had played.”

“And he had played the part at Mrs Clinton direction,” said Tripp.

Moreover there was a marked contrast between Foster’s heartfelt emotion at the Waco tragedy and Hillary Clinton’s, Tripp insists: “Her reaction was heartless”.

Her accusations give further weight to allegations first levelled in the 1999 documentary on the deadly confrontation, “Waco: A New Revelation.” The film featured the account of former House Waco investigator T. March Bell. “One of the interesting things that happens in an investigation is that you get anonymous phone calls,” Bell explained in the film. “And we in fact received anonymous phone calls from Justice Department managers and attorneys who believe that pressure was placed on Janet Reno by Webb Hubbel, pressure that came from the first lady of the United States.”

Mrs Clinton grew more and more impatient as the Waco stand-off came to dominate the headlines during the early months of the Clinton administration, said Bell. It was she, according to Bell’s sources, who pressured a reluctant Janet Reno to act.

“Give me a reason not to do this,” Reno is said to have begged aides shortly before orders were issued for the final assault.

A good History and the meaning and aftermath of this can be found at: Little Alex in Wonderland

written in 2010, this prescient statement is included for “whatever happened”:

It is again gauche to suggest that the U.S. government is a serious threat to our liberty. While the left at times appropriately condemned Bush’s warmaking, warrantless wiretapping, violations of habeas corpus and flouting of due process, the left has now become resigned to the precise policies being carried out by their hero Barack Obama. Just as important, they have forgotten what it meant to be more afraid of their government than of their fellow Americans upset about that government. All this Bush-era despotism continues unabated, but now it is seen as unseemly, unpatriotic, hateful, and even criminal to suggest that the U.S. government has authoritarian practices and totalitarian designs.

Bill Clinton admits to interfering in Israeli election – what is he doing over there?

 

Strange isn’t it? This little item never made it to the cables. Even more interesting, it is taking being more obnoxious for the Clintons to be relevant and to make a headline. First why is Bill over in the Middle East? Who is paying him? Or are the two of them going senile into the night? Of course, this just gives fodder to our distractors that the USA interferes in elections and governments. Note the Albania story out there now: US govt spent $9mn on Soros-backed political campaign in Albania …

Then again Obama was in it up to his eyeballs in interference as well.

The right in Israel has accused the U.S. — and in particular Democratic presidents — with interfering with local elections. The last time the finger was pointed was during the 2015 elections, when activists tied to the Obama administration were charged with trying to thwart another win for Netanyahu. The effort failed and Netanyahu kept the position he’s held since 2009.

Then again how about Russia?

Ted Kennedy asked Russians for election help, Bill Clinton mixed in the Russian election  bunkerville

In 1996 US govt interfered in Russia’s election so blatantly it was boasted of on the cover of Time magazine. . 

But back to the story at hand over at Breitbart:

TEL AVIV – Former president Bill Clinton confessed to Israeli television that he tried to help Shimon Peres defeat Benjamin Netanyahu in Israel’s 1996 general elections.

In an interview on Channel 10 news that aired Tuesday, Clinton admitted that he tried to help Peres win the election in a way that didn’t “overtly” implicate him, and that he did so because Peres was more committed than Netanyahu to the so-called peace process, which had suffered a huge blow with the assassination of Yitzhak Rabin six months earlier.

“I tried to do it in a way that didn’t overtly involve me,” he said, without expanding on exactly how he intervened.

Clintons and their ‘love’ for Haiti -Hillary calls out Trump’s remarks? NYC Protests!

 

Falling victim to one of the various bugs, I found myself laying fallow. In an effort to distract myself, I turned on the T.V. and ended up watching a psychotic press roll out Trump’s so-called victims of his latest snapshot view America’s immigration policies. Trump’s premise was that America could become the very sh*t hole similar to much of Africa and our neighbors to the South if our borders are not secure and immigration was not based on merit. Seemed simple enough. Having suffered the slings and arrows of Hillary during the campaign— a deplorable and irredeemable human being– I just wasn’t prepared to take it on the chin again. Right now, it is impossible to even turn on the news.. but as I bid adieu to the topic, let us not forget Clinton’s and their race relations. Specifically Haiti. I include a terrific clip that exposes the Clintons for the criminals they are. Funny, none of this is getting reported.

Here is something that gives me some piece of mind:

Protesters gathered outside the Clinton Foundation in New York City to complain about “missing money” from the Haiti recovery effort from the 2010 earthquake:

“New Yorkers with roots in Haiti say the picture [of the Haiti recovery] isn’t so rosy,” said the NY1 anchor.

The protesters claimed that the $10 billion meant to help rebuild Haiti did little to help the country after the devastating quake. And that much of the money went to non-Haitian companies.

“[I]n Harlem, people raised their voices to call attention to the missing money,” said the local New York City reporter. “This protest outside the offices of the Clinton Foundation, which helped lead the reconstruction fund.”

Said one protester, “These people, they are still living in very difficult conditions, still living under tents, while Bill Clinton and his cronies–they waste this money.”

Doctor mentioned in Wikileaks Clinton E-mail dead, stabs himself in the chest??

 

The death toll mounts for this years victims of knowing the Clintons. The police respond to a 911 call for an assault. Found dead with a self-inflicted knife. Sounds about right:

An acclaimed New York Trauma surgeon was found dead this week in his apartment.
Police said he stabbed himself in the chest.
They found him on his bathroom floor.
ABC News reported:

“An acclaimed trauma surgeon was found dead with a knife in his torso Sunday in his Park Avenue apartment in a suspected suicide, New York City police said.

Dr. Dean Lorich, 54, was the associate director of the orthopedic trauma service at the Hospital for Special Surgery who treated Bono in 2014 after the U2 frontman was badly injured in a cycling accident in Central Park.

Lorich was also a professor at Weill Cornell Medical College.”

His death is being investigated as an apparent suicide, a New York Police Department official told ABC News.

Initial investigations did not find any signs of forced entry at his apartment, the official said. Authorities have not found a suicide note.

Police responding to a 911 call of an assault in a Park Avenue apartment at 1:05 p.m. Sunday found Lorich unconscious and unresponsive with a knife in his torso, according to the NYPD. Emergency medical service responders pronounced him dead.

Dr. Lorich was mentioned in the Clinton Wikileaks emails for his work in Haiti.

 

Earlier this month Steve Mostyn, Democrat mega donor to Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton, died after “a sudden onset and battle with a mental health issue.”

In July
 former Haitian government Klaus Eberwein was found dead in a motel room from a gunshot wound to the head.

In August 15, 2016, anti Clinton author Scott Robert Makufka, better known as his penname Victor Thorn, was found dead. Thorn was the author of several anti-Clinton books over the years.

And that’s just the last year of Arkancides.
