A Commentary by J. D. Longstreet
Methinks it is time to gear-up the "vast right wing conspiracy."
The Clintons are BAAA-aaack!
About the time we thought it was safe to get back into politics, WHAM O! The sharks are in a fury churning the political waters so violently they are sucking mud up from the bottom feeder's domain.
I must tell you, I hate the very idea of having to suffer through another Clinton campaign and, saints preserve us, another 4-year Clinton Administration. It is repugnant to me, I mean, the embarrassment from the various scandals that seem to follow those people, "The Clintons."
Somehow, many of us, this scribe included, felt dirty and tainted just by living in a country where "those people" could attain high office.
And now we are looking at the very real possibility that we're are going to have that Clinton yoke hung round our collective necks once again.
Makes me wonder what the country did that has angered God so much?! (Yes, I know our national sins are mountainous!)
Lest we forget the sheer torment of the chain of scandals during the Clinton Years:
Below is a list of the Bill Clinton scandals and his legacy
Whitewater - the alleged banking and real estate scandals of Clinton and his friends.
Cattle Futuresgate - This involved Hillary's investment of $1,000 in cattle futures that turned into $100,000
Travelgate - The Clintons fired seven white house travel office employees in favor of hire relatives and friends.
Gennifer Flowersgate - Bill Clinton denied a 12 year affair with Gennifer Flowers. She taped phone calls with him but he claimed they were false and branded her a liar. Now he has admitted to at least some of the affair. It turns out Clinton was the liar.
Filegate - This involves the discovery of over 900 Republican FBI files in the White House. The Clinton administration called it a mistake.
Vince Fostergate - Soon after Clinton lawyer Vince Foster committed suicide, his office was cleared out, which included Whitewater billing records and several key pieces of evidence.
Whitewater Billing Recordsgate - Years after they had disappeared from Vince fosters office, subpoenaed Whitewater billing records mysteriously appeared in the White House.
Paula Jonesgate -
Federal Building Campaign Phone Callsgate -Al Gore made over 75 illegal phone calls to solicit contributions to the DNC from federal property.
Lincoln Bedroomgate - DNC donors were allowed to spend the night in the Lincoln bedroom for a contribution of $150,000.
Donations from Convicted Drug and Weapons Dealersgate - The Clintons were photographed on numerous occasions meeting with drug ring leader Jorge Cabrera at fundraising events. Clinton donations also came from a convicted illegal arms dealer and Chinese government agents.
Buddhist Templegate - Al Gore attended a money funneling event/fundraiser at a Buddhist temple then claimed he never knew about it being a fundraiser.
Lippogate - A total of $452,000 in illegal donations was given to the DNC from the Indonesian Lippo group. John Huang, a Clinton cronie and former Commerce department official with top level FBI clearance pled guilty to funneling Lippo group and Chinese donations to the DNC.
Chinagate - Attempts were made by Communist China to funnel money to the Clinton campaign and influence elections in 1996. Charlie Trie, one of Clintons trusted DNC fundraisers, attempted to funnel this money. When faced with indictment he fled to China. Another money funneler for the communists and Clinton campaign, Johnny Chung, went to jail.
The Lewinsky Affair - Clinton's affair with an intern and the subsequent denial to the American People, which turned out to be a lie.
Perjury and Jobs for Lewinskygate - There was evidence that Lewinsky was instructed how to hide the affair by Clinton and offered a job by Vernon Jordan - as an "incentive" to remain quiet.
Willeygate - Kathleen Willey directly accused President Clinton of fondling her in the White House then attempting to hide it. Willey was a Democrat and enthusiastic Clinton supporter.
Web Hubbell Prison Phone Callgate - While in prison, Web Hubbell was taped making phone calls in which methods were discussed to achieve a pardon and evidence on other Clinton scandals was discussed.
Selling Military Technology to the Chinesegate - Clinton administration gave military technology to Communist China. This information included satellite guidance technology and enough information for communist China to modernize their nuclear arsenal.
Wag the Doggate - The repeated use of the United States military to draw attention away from the Presidential impeachment proceedings. One day before he was to be impeached, Clinton called an uncharacteristic suprise air attack on Iraq.
Jaunita Broaddrick Gate - Jaunita Broaddrick, a former Clinton campaigner in Arkansas, appeared on national television and accused Clinton of raping her in the late seventies.
Vandalgate - Before leaving the White House, members of the Clinton administration vandalized the Whitehouse as a "prank" on the incoming Republican administration.
Lootergate - Bill and Hillary Clinton left the Whitehouse with silverware, furniture, and many items that were donated to the Whire House. They claimed the items were given to them. Included was a multi thousand dollar furniture set belonging to the Interior Department, which the Clintons had tried to claim as a gift before being forced to return it under pressure.
Pardongate - On the night before and morning of his departure from office, Bill Clinton made several controversial "midnight" pardons. Aside from pardoning political allies and scandal co-conspirators such as Susan McDougal, Henry Cisneros, and his brother Roger, Bill pardoned fugitive criminal millionaire Marc Rich. Among Rich's crimes were oil deals with Iran during the hostage crisis and ties to arms smuggling. Hillary Clinton's brother Hugh Rodham was paid over $400,000 dollars for successfully fighting for pardons and commutations for criminals Carlos Vignali and Almon Glenn Braswell. Hillary and Bill denied any knowledge of Hugh's involvement and, under pressure, called on him to return the money.

If that list is not enough for you just type "List of Clinton Scandals" into Google. You might want to grab a snack prior to hitting the search button though.
Also -- consider this from American Thinker: "For as long as Hillary Clinton has been on the national scene, she has left a path of destruction and wreckage in her wake that is both impressive and terrible to behold. She is a testament to the extent of damage that can be done by one person determined to conquer everything before her in the quest for unlimited power and self-gratification. The only prize left to her in American politics is the presidency, which she has always felt is hers by right. Indeed, she would have attained it were it not for the upstart community organizer, a fellow admirer of Saul Alinsky, who spoke in volumes but said nothing." -- SOURCE: http://www.americanthinker.com/2013/06/hillary_clintons_legacy_of_scandal.html
From the samer article at American Thinker we read this: "Wherever Mrs. Clinton goes, destruction follows. Of course, like the current president, nothing is ever her fault. She knows nothing. She is the innocent victim of all around her, endlessly bemoaning her fate as the victim of a vast right-wing conspiracy that somehow has directed the events of her life even before there was a vast right-wing conspiracy." -- SOURCE: http://www.americanthinker.com/2013/06/hillary_clintons_legacy_of_scandal.html
Now is the time to reactivate the vast right wing conspiracy as a counter to the Hillary for President campaign. The republic has need of some seasoned right wing veterans of the original Clinton years who can give an exceptional accounting of themselves in the coming fight.
