The message and article that follow were sent to me by my friend Helen B. and is right on time.
You MUST read this article. It is most revealing and should be sent all around the country and sent to all editors of newspapers, especially get it South Carolina early tomorrow. Before you read the article, I want to give you a little background information. While Hillary is trying to smear Obama with his "so called" ties to Tony Resko; she has a bigger resume of wrong doing and foul affiliations. Let's start with Whitewater Development Corporation, Hillary and Bill were partners. Read the article on the web, "Pacific Views' of Hillary Clinton. Then read The Whitewater Lies courtesy of Ted Koppel and Jeff Greenfield. To get back to the point of Whitewater, this Development Corp was backed by Madison Guaranty Savings and Loan which went bankrupt in 1989. The controlling partners with the Clintons were Jim and Susan McDougal. The group was accused of improprieties regarding campaign contributions, political and financial favors and tax benefits. The Clintons claimed the relevant papers that the investigator, whom I believe was Ken Starr, when asked to produce documents said they were lost when they were interrogated during an investigation into their dealings. Remember Susan McDougal went to jail rather than testify against the Clintons because she was as guilty as the Clintons. Later those same missing papers turned up in the White House in 1996. Vincent Foster, attorney for Hillary Clinton, who represented her in the Whitewater investigation, had an unfortunate ending. Mysteriously Vincent Foster committed suicide in 1993. In 1996 Hillary became the first First Lady to be called to testify in a federal investigation and was interrogated some 4 or 5 hours.
Though Bill Clinton appointed more minorities to Cabinet and subcabinet posts, most of them had ill-fated experiences either during or after they left the White House. Who can forget poor Betty Curry, when she was interrogated about the Monica Lewinsky affair?
The young Hillary was a Republican who in 1964 supported the presidential bid of Republican Senator Barry Goldwater. At Wellesley College where she matriculated she was the president of the chapter of College Republicans. If you dig deep enough you will find many unsavory occurrences in the lives of Hill and Bill (Sillary and Wild Hill Billy Clinton).
A March 12, 2007 article written by acclaimed Washington columnist Robert Novak sheds a very revealing light on the true sentiment of Hillary Clinton during the peak of the Civil Rights Movement. Clinton recently was found to have minimized the great and monumental strides taken by Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. by stating that it was Lyndon B. Johnson, then president, who should receive the credit for the civil rights progress including the Civil Rights Act of 1964.
In an attempt to attract black support Hillary Clinton regularly shares her 'civil rights experience' during every speech given to black audiences. Novak writes of one such speec h at Selma 's First Baptist Church on the 42nd anniversary of the 'bloody Sunday' freedom march there, where Sen. Clinton declared: 'As a young woman, I had the great privilege of hearing Dr. King speak in Chicago . The year was 1963. My youth minister from our church took a few of us down on a cold January night to hear [King]. . . . And he called on us, he challenged us that evening to stay awake during the great revolution that the civil rights pioneers were waging on behalf of a more perfect union.' But Novak's article states that there's a big problem with her statement.
The fact is, in 1963, not only was Hillary Clinton a republican, but she was also a staunch supporter of republican Senator Barry Goldwater, well known as a segregationist and one of the most vocal senators adamantly against the passing of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, which is why he lost in his presidential bid to Lyndon B. Johnson. Novak writes '...how then could she be a 'Goldwater Girl' in the next year's presidential election?' He continues, '...she described herself in her memoirs as 'an active Young Republican' and 'a Goldwater girl, right down to my cowgirl outfit.'
Novak adds, 'As a politically attuned honor student, she must have known that Goldwater was one of only six Republican senators who joined Southern Democratic segregationists opposing the historic voting rights act of 1964 inspired by King. Hillary headed the Young Republicans at Wellesley College. The incompatibility of those two positions of 40 years ago was noted to me (Novak) by Democratic old-timers who were shocked by Sen. Clinton's temerity in pursuing her presidential candidacy.' Novak adds, 'What Hillary Clinton said at Selma is significant because it betrays her campaign's panicky reaction to the unexpected rise of Sen. Obama as a serious competitor for the Democratic nomination.
The most important question that one can ask oneself when assessing this Race to the White House, why are the Clintons so frenetic, so vicious, so stooping to the lowest level in order to return to this seat of power. Analyze and put your thinking caps on and the answer will be very obvious to you. There have been people who were a part of the Clinton Administration who are criticizing the debased level to which the Clintons have stooped and double-teamed in order to siege the reins of power! Why? Do your due diligence and then...Ask Yourself Why!
