  1. THE CLINTONS PASS IN THE NIGHT


    By DICK MORRIS & EILEEN MCGANN

    March 8, 2006 -- Bill and Hillary Clinton are the first couple to appear simultaneously and independently on the national political stage. They are using their special circumstances as a convenient shield for one another, fulfilling, at once, Hillary’s dream of no accountability and Bill’s of being able to take both sides of an issue.

    Did Hillary know that Bill was pardoning the FALN terrorists to help her win Puerto Rican votes in New York? Oh, she was opposed to the pardon.

    Did Hillary find out that Bill was granting pardons to felons and drug dealers who had hired her brothers for six-figure fees to lobby her husband for pardons right under her nose? No way. In fact she was “saddened” at her brothers’ involvement.

    And we all know that Hillary was “gasping for breath” when she first learned the truth about Monica Lewinsky.

    And the former first lady was “bewildered” that members of the White House staff would treat her demands that they fire the travel-office staff as an order.

    Bill has been out there criticizing the war while Hillary plays to the center by voting for it.

    And now, this heavy-footed pas de deux straddles the issue of whether a Dubai company should run six American ports.

    Are we truly to believe Hillary’s insistence last week that she knew nothing about Bill’s counseling of his friend and benefactor the crown prince of Dubai, Sheik Mohammed bin Rashid al Maktoum, on the ports deal? Do Bill and Hillary Clinton ever speak to each other, or do they just attend funerals, fundraisers and Billy Graham crusades together for photo-ops?

    Bill is, after all, a regular in Dubai. The crown prince — that is, the government — contributed to his presidential library and pays him $300,000 per speech. Recently, Yucaipa, an American company that has Bill Clinton as a “senior adviser” and pays him a percentage of its profits, formed a partnership with the Dubai Investment Group to form DIGL Inc., a company dedicated to managing the sheik’s personal investments.

    No doubt Bill Clinton was brought in to cement this lucrative deal from which he — and therefore Hillary — will likely make millions. Neither Bill nor Hillary will disclose how much he is paid, but her Senate financial disclosure says that he will make “more than” $1,000. They also won’t say how much Dubai royalty gave to the Clinton library.

    So when Sen. Charles Schumer (D-N.Y.) broke the story that the administration had approved the Dubai ports deal and Bill Clinton started to defend it in public, are we to believe that Hillary did not know that the sheik had called him to ask his advice, and are we to believe that Bill’s defense of the deal was unrelated to his myriad financial ties to Dubai?

    Hillary stands to gain millions in income from her husband’s Dubai connection. She knows he flies there very, very frequently. And she must realize that Bill is close to the Dubai royal family.

    So why did she dump on the port deal? Likely to cover herself. If she were anything less than front and center against the Dubai port deal, she would vulnerable to criticism over Bill’s involvement with the Dubai royal family. So she held marathon press conferences denouncing the deal and professed not to realize her husband was defending the deal at the sheik’s request.

    What’s really going on here is that Bill Clinton is trying to please his Arab patrons and business partners at the same time that Hillary Clinton is trying to capitalize on American stereotypes about Arab terrorists.

    More important, she’s desperately trying to distract attention from the Dubai dollars that flow into her family checking account from Bill’s political and business dealings with the Dubai crown prince. What better way than to attack them?

    We should insist that:

    • Bill Clinton register as an agent of a foreign principal.

    • The Clintons say how much he makes from Dubai.

    • The Clinton library tell us how much Dubai royalty gave to the library.

    • And Bill disclose, in the future, whenever he is speaking as an ex-president or as a paid public-relations flack.

    Next thing you know we will find out Ann Coulter does not like liberals...
     
  4. coulter like bush is a posterdog for al-qaeda recruitment.
    ps,
    notice that all/many freaks wk at the facist news channel aka fnc including phonesex freak o'reilly.
     
  5. Indeed. They're all owned.

    Both democrat and republican. owned.
     
  6. Well, either it's true or it's not. Dick Morris doesn;t have anything to do with it. Another Clinton scandal that the mainstream media is not the least bit interested in, despite the fact they were hysterical over the ports deal.
     
  7. You seem to be suggesting that a Arab government owned corporation operating our ports is a non-issue. Is that what you are suggesting? Please clarify this issue.

    As for Bill Clinton. You can insist away. The guy is a private citizen now and there is nothing you can do about his private matters. No one really gives a shit what you insist upon. The whole nation is going down the shit hole and this senile poster is worried about Clinton. Are all you neo-commies deranged? That would explain the death spiral we have entered since you sickos took over.

  8. While I am no fan of any of the political houses, you must admit Clinton does seem to suffer from the ability to be right there every time there's a smoking gun. He's that face that is in the background of every picture from the scene of an arson. You've got to ask yourself, why's he here too!

    There are rules that he needs to follow you know. As an average citizen, he should be registered as an agent for a foreign company. If he's not, I do expect to see his ass receive the same treatment were it you there. After all, he is a private citizen.

    He draws $300,000 (rumored) per speaking engagement from Dubai. It's his right. Trying to hook his friends into a deal if he can. Again, he has that right also. I just don't understand the need to be sneaky if this is just a legit deal.

    It's also my right to ignore his ass when he complains about him having to follow the rules. In the next few days I expect the pundits to start claiming he didn't know! Or, it was a reporting slip in his office. It is at that time that I will look to all sides to punish his bad behavior, for real! Until you stop letting him slide, he will continue to push against the hot stove. One day soon he'll get burned! :)
     
  9. The only reason you see "smoking guns" is because you want to. Others do not see any smoke or a gun. You have the President himself lobbying for the Arab company and here you are complaining about a private citizen. We need to worry about the individuals currently in office . Not private citizens doing their own thing.

    Where did you come up with "he needs to be registered". what does he need to register for? he is a private consultant. He is not lobbying congress directly. Could you please explain. Maybe I am missing some information.

    What do you mean by " Until you stop letting him slide, he will continue to push against the hot stove" ? I do not give a shit what he does. He could be fucking his maid for all I care. What he does in his private life is his business. If he broke any law, trust me, the neo-commies would be screaming about it. Running naked in the streets, mouths foaming like a rabid mongrel.

  10. And I would say YOU don't see a smoking gun, because YOU choose not to. I can't choose how you feel, or don't feel about the guy. Personally, I think he's an asshole!

    As for registration, you might start with the Foreign Agents Registration Act (FARA, passed in 1938). Interestingly enough, it is handled directly under the "Criminal Division" of the Department Of Justice. And you and I both know that Bill has been too busy to have read and understood his responsibilities since leaving office.

    This document and its associated statutes does cover "Private Consultants." It also covers politicians and some of their special requirements. You see having been in the hallowed halls they have certain access and abilities that the average "private consultant" wouldn't. They have insider knowledge and possible influence that might make for something that is not intended.

    I am sure after you read this document, we can debate the specific sightings contained therein. I don't want to just explain it to you. Let's discuss what we have read on the subject and talk from knowledge and not an emotional basis. And no, I won't fully exploit the fact that I have read it somewhat before (I am not a scholar in the matter though).

    As for the "until YOU stop letting him slide" comment. It was not addressing you specific. It was you from the collective understanding. Here is a guy that throughout his life SEEMS to have been able to ALWAYS escape responsibility because we won't degrade something because of him. The Office Of Governor, the Office Of The President, the Ambassadorship he now enjoys have (and will) all provided him a level of cover for some form of personal moral lapse.

    And there is a level of respect of office that speaks to "you must listen, cover, respect" his opinion BECAUSE he was "President of the United States". In the African American community, you can even use the term "solely" in this understanding with Clinton. Here is a guy whom most Americans clearly think is a liar. Unquestionably!

    The reference of "Slick," has dogged this man since well before the cameras and political interests. There is a reason and an element of truth therein. This we must acknowledge whether or not we agree with his politics. He himself describes himself as a consummate politician (personally heard it at a speech in Chicago over ten years ago).

    For ME, it is the moral stature that I have an issue with. If nothing else, I need to understand your moral compass as a leader. Notice I didn't say agree with. While his public service compass MAY be balanced (questionable), that personal one...oh well. And remember, he is now in contact with me and the rest of the public, personally! And if I know I can't trust you personally...how can I publicly? :)
