On Tuesday night at the Democrat convention, Bill Clinton told a fantasy story.
“In the spring of 1971, I met a girl,” he began, and then for the next 42 minutes Clinton waltzed through a storybook portrayal of his marriage to Hillary Rodham Clinton.
The Associated Press writes the goal of the story
“…was to make Clinton, perhaps the most famous female politician in the world, yet a public figure her aides claim remains unknown, relatable to voters. He cast her as a liberal heroine of her own story, who fought for education reform, health care, civil rights, the disabled, 9/11 first responders and economically depressed rural areas.”
The reality is something else entirely.
The Clintons Sabotaged Progressives They Claim to Support
Bill Clinton was a low-level CIA operative in the 1960s and Hillary Rodham a supporter of Barry Goldwater.
During an NPR interview in 1996, Clinton told Scott Simon her political beliefs were “rooted in the conservatism that I was raised with” and added that she is “very proud that I was a Goldwater girl.”
Clinton worked for the Goldwater campaign the same year the Civil Rights Act was passed.
Goldwater opposed Section II of the Civil Rights Act on public accommodations and Section VII on equal employment opportunity and was one of six Republicans in the Senate who voted against the legislation.
Dr. Roger Morris writes in his book “Partners in Power: The Clintons and Their America,” Hillary Clinton was “a closet Contra supporter” who aided Contra funding from Little Rock, Arkansas and also used her influence to undermine the work of peace activists and pro-Sandinista church groups opposed to Reagan’s policies in Central America.
Morris demolishes the image of Bill and Hillary as liberals or conservatives.
In a review of his book, The Sunday Telegraph writes the Clintons “have no conviction, no ideology, no guiding purpose. Driven by raw ambition, they will make any compromise necessary to advance their interests.”
Once a CIA Agent, Always a CIA Agent
Prior to the partnership, Bill Clinton worked for the CIA during Operation CHAOS, an effort launched by LBJ and continued under Nixon to destroy the antiwar movement.
As a Rhodes scholar studying at Oxford, he spied on fellow students involved in protest activities against the Vietnam War.
Bill was sent to Norway to monitor activists who had taken refuge in Scandinavia to avoid the draft. According to Morris, Clinton’s spying activity was confirmed by a CIA station officer in Stockholm.
Needless to say, Bill Clinton’s connection to the CIA has not made it into the official story and is certainly not part of the rosy narrative spun in Philadelphia last night.
Detractors insist Roger Morris is merely a conspiracy theorist. “But Morris is no lightweight.
He worked at the White House in both the Johnson and Nixon administrations, resigning from the National Security Council in 1970 in protest over the US invasion of Cambodia. He went on to become an acclaimed biographer of Richard Nixon,” the Sunday Telegraph notes.
Deal to Get Hillary Elected
“Hillary was upholding her part of the deal to get Billy elected president, after which it would be her turn to be the first woman in the Oval Office,” writes Dolly Kyle, a former longtime lover of Bill Clinton.
Hillary ignored his satyriasis and abuse of women — and defended him against those who went public — because “Hillary needs the power” and she is ruthless.
Bill and Hillary teamed up after Hillary flunked the DC bar exam and tried “to become a political force under her own steam,” but failed.
Her former boss Jerry Zeifman, a Democrat who served as counsel and chief of staff for the House Judiciary Committee during the Watergate scandal, said Hillary was a liar and unethical and fired her from a job working on the investigation.
“I terminated her, along with some other staff members who were — were no longer needed, and advised her that I would not — could not — recommend her for any further positions,” Zeifman said when asked about the future first lady and presidential hopeful.
Hillary’s lust for power, her marriage of convenience to a sexual predator, and Bill’s work for the CIA did not make it into the all-American love story he spun last night.
Many at the convention undoubtedly bought the fanciful story, but more than a few progressives know Hillary Clinton for what she really is — a self-seeking, power hungry political opportunist who will betray them the moment she enters the Oval Office.
A large number of progressives realize Hillary worked behind the scenes with the DNC leadership and its superdelegates to steal the nomination from the socialist Bernie Sanders.
No way in hell, they promise, will they ever vote for her.
