Over the years, nearly every person associated with Bill Clinton realized that he is a compulsive liar. Many people associated with Bill Clinton also know that he is a compulsive adulterer. Both character faults were very evident throughout his tenure as governor. Both character faults were brought with him to Washington.

These character faults were no secret. The press knew all about them. Hillary certainly knew. The Clinton campaign committee knew, and even had a "bimbo eruption" squad. Only the American voters were not informed. The national press corps intentionally covered it up.

The 60 Minutes Show in 1992, where they intentionally resuscitated the Clinton presidential campaign after the Gennifer Flowers story first came out, immediately comes to mind. It was strictly political propaganda. The show was a lie. The producers knowingly perpetrated a fraud on the American people -- and called it news. So too did dozens of journalists. The 60 Minutes Show lied by deception. Other journalists lied by omission.

America trusted the national media for information. Instead of true and accurate information, America was fed a steady diet of cover-up and deception. The national media protected Presidential Candidate Bill Clinton, held him in a favorable light, and through omission and deception, actively worked to insure his election.

Over the years, the national media saved hundreds of thousands of feet of video and audio tape which they could have used to illustrate Clinton's many political lies and deceptions. But, except by Rush Limbaugh, none was used for that purpose. The White House press corps knew of Clinton's philandering, and the lust and debauchery of the White House staff, for many years. Yet, nothing was ever reported. The national media knew of illegal drug abuse within the White House, but never published the story. So too did they know that the "leaks" they received almost daily were often false information. But they rushed to publish them anyway.

And when the White House propaganda team, under the direction of Hillary Clinton, intentionally leaked information that the White House team would later blame on Independent Counsel Kenneth Starr for leaking, not one of these Washington "journalists" had the honor, integrity or ethics to come forward with the truth. Instead, the whole of the Washington press corps allowed honorable men to suffer in court, trying to prove they did not do that for which they were accused but really had no first hand knowledge.

Bill Clinton is a liar. Hillary Clinton is a liar and an enabler. Neither act with honor or integrity. Both have lied under oath and made a practice of obstructing justice. And, they were continuously aided, abetted and protected by the national press corps.

For instance, when two teams of lawyers took depositions from the Clintons for the Whitewater matter, the teams compared notes afterwards. The two teams independently came to the same amazing conclusion: Both Clintons tend to lie a lot. The lawyers questioning Bill thought he lied over half of the time. The group questioning Hillary, however, did not believe she told the truth about anything. Quite a few members of the media had that story, but news of the perjury was spiked.

Like overturning a wasp's nest in the middle of a big family picnic, this time, the Clintons' lies stung everyone around them. The White House staff and press corps alike are finally starting to realize that they are little more than expendable pawns, used to perpetrate and defend yet another Clinton deception. Few of these Clinton apologists will ever again be believed by Americans in polite society, nor should they. Had they been honorable people, they would have spoken up and Clinton would have been out of office long ago.

Even the Clinton legal team got burnt by Clinton lies. Bob Bennett was present at the Jones deposition when Clinton committed perjury. Starr has proof of that now. Therefore, if Bennett doesn't want to risk his law license, he must now withdraw from further representation. Then, he must formally report to the Court that his client, Bill Clinton, has committed perjury.

This week, there are reports of a disagreement between the political and legal camps within the White House, and news that the legal group may be leaving. That report is only somewhat accurate. To protect their livelihood, Clinton's legal team should leave. Because, when Bill Clinton testified to the grand jury, he again committed perjury. Actually, at this writing, reports are that Starr has Clinton for over a dozen perjuries. David Kendall and other Clinton attorneys were there when Clinton committed some of those perjuries. Therefore, if Kendall and the others want to protect their law licenses, they should resign -- and report the perjury to the court.

Lawyers have a code of ethics they must honor. Starr caught the Clinton legal team just as he caught the Clintons. Bill Clinton was willing to sacrifice the livelihood of his attorneys to continue a lie. Will the legal-eagles fall on their sword for their king? Don't bet on it.

That other large group of Clinton enablers, the leftist-liberal national press corps, have no such professional constraints. They will continue to favor that part of the information provided to them by the far left contingent in government. Unfortunately, that is the cross America must bear for having what is euphemistically still referred to as a "free press."


Seldom has a President scheduled an address to the nation at 10 p.m. But then, never before has a President's message to the nation held the potential of an 'R' rating. Yet, such was the case with Admitted Liar Bill Clinton last Monday night. Bill Clinton came on television, into our living rooms, to tell us that he committed adultery, and to admit to the nation that he lied to the American people for seven straight months to cover it up.

Well, almost, anyway.

What was needed, what was expected by the American people, was what some call the three "C's": candor, contrition and closure. America expected an apology, a simple "I'm sorry" or "I apologize." Americans expected Admitted Liar Bill Clinton to be contrite, repentant and ask the country for forgiveness. Instead, America heard a pseudo-confession consisting of misdirection and conceit. First Liar Bill Clinton was unapologetic and did little more than attempt to manipulate public opinion. Instead of the "three C's," America got segments of what Clinton advisor Dick Morris calls "the three D's" -- deny, discredit and destroy.

This time, however, the American people noticed, and were not pleased. The CNN/USA Today/Gallup Poll taken Monday night showed the president's personal approval rating quickly dropped from 60 percent down to 40 percent after the address. Then the Gallup people went:

'Whoops! Can't have those numbers because the people paying for the poll are professional Clinton apologists.' So, Frank Newport, editor in chief of the poll, publicly said there was a slight error, and that he estimates the Monday night drop was probably closer to 10 percentage points, from 60 percent to 50 percent. That correction allows the liberal Clinton enablers in the media to continue saying that the president's job approval rating still held steady, at near 60 percent.

The closest the First Liar came to an apology was the admission:

I did have a relationship with Ms. Lewinsky that was not appropriate. In fact, it was wrong. It constituted a critical lapse in judgment and a personal failure on my part for which I am solely and completely responsible. I must take complete responsibility for all my actions, both public and private.

Note the complete lack of an "I'm sorry" for the seven months of lying to the nation, causing many hundreds of thousands of dollars in investigations, disrupting the lives of dozens of people, causing numerous unnecessary court challenges, and committing perjury in the Paula Jones case. Never mind that the White House disinformation team attempted to totally trash the reputations of a number of people associated with the Lewinsky matter and had their complete lives investigated and publicized. And there was not a word about how the White House deceived the American people through leaking deceptive press accounts, nor about how the administration wrongly used those two dozen federal employees to disseminate disinformation almost every night for seven months on the talk shows.

If Newt Gingrich had to pay $300,000 in investigative fees simply because he published a book and gave a class liberals did not like, Admitted Liar Bill Clinton owes the federal treasury a few million dollars as reimbursement for the same type of expenses and court costs.

Clinton's "speech was less contrite, less humble than I thought it might be -- less apologetic," said Rep. Lee Hamilton (D-IN). Socialist Senator Diane Feinstein (D-CA) said the president's remarks "leave me with a deep sense of sadness in that my trust in his credibility has been badly shattered." And Rep. Paul McHale (D-PA) was the first Democrat to call for Clinton's resignation.

Republicans joined in, too: "The president should resign for the good of the country," Tom DeLay (R-TX) said. DeLay said that Clinton "has lied to his family, his friends, his Cabinet, the Congress and the American people."

Former cabinet member, noted author and general D.C. roustabout, William J. Bennett, writes in the August 19, Wall Street Journal: "Bill Clinton's five-minute address to the American people Monday night was the most deceptive, shameless and self-pitying speech ever delivered by an American president. Almost every sentence was dishonest."

We certainly agree with Bill Bennett, but there are a couple questions that should be asked by all Americans from coast to coast: Why did you, among this country's conservative moral and political leadership, wait to start this now? The Clintons, their staff and sycophants in the press, have been lying to us continuously since they came on the national scene. So, Bill Bennett, and others, why didn't you start speaking up six years ago?

Even in his pseudo-apology to the nation, Bill Clinton is a liar. He, and his whole administration, must go.


Last November, Rep. Bob Barr (R-GA) introduced House Resolution 304 "Directing the Committee on the Judiciary to undertake an inquiry into whether grounds exist to impeach William Jefferson Clinton, the President of the United States." The resolution has 17 co-sponsors. That bill is still viable, and is now very timely.

The full text of the Resolution is below:

Whereas considerable evidence has been developed from a broad array of credible sources that William Jefferson Clinton, President of the United States, has engaged in a systemic effort to obstruct, undermine, and compromise the legitimate and proper functions and processes of the executive branch: Now, therefore, be it

Resolved: That the Committee on the Judiciary is directed to investigate and report to the House whether grounds exist to impeach William Jefferson Clinton, President of the United States. Upon completion of such investigation, that Committee shall report to the House its recommendations with respect thereto, including, if the Committee so determines, a resolution of impeachment.


H. Res. 304, and a whole host of other pertinent impeachment information is available on Rep. Barr's web page at: http://www.house.gov/barr/i_.htm

For those of us who want Admitted Liar Bill Clinton and his interfering, reprobate wife out of government, now is the time to act. The best way to address Congress on this issue is to send postcards that simply say, "Impeach Clinton." We might also suggest that Representatives sign on to Bob Barr's H. Res. 304.

Republicans are starting to reach out to the other side of the aisle on this issue, and some Democrats are already responding. If constituents inundate Congress with impeachment postcards, there could be quite a number of Democrats sign on with Barr's bill.

But, there's yet another important point we Americans must address with Congress -- especially the House, and particularly Henry Hyde's Judiciary Committee. http://www.house.gov/judiciary/ We the People, the sovereign citizens of these United States, want to see Independent Counsel Kenneth Starr's report to Congress as soon as it becomes available. It should, therefore, be posted on the Internet, in its entirety, as soon as it is delivered to the House of Representatives.

Nothing is secret in Washington. When Starr's report goes to Congress, some in the media will see it. That means the media, having a vested interest in the situation, will filter bits and pieces of the Starr report to us. Reports from the media will then come to us reeking with liberal commentary and spin.

Simply put, we do not need the left-leaning Washington press corps telling us what we should think about Starr's report. Interested Americans must have the opportunity to examine all of the data for themselves.

Therefore, our postcards to Congress will read, "Impeach Clinton Now," (in large letters) and "Post the Starr Report on the Internet AS SOON as it is Received." The postcards will be followed by a telephone call to the local Congressional offices a few days later.

Cards, letters, e-mail, and telephone calls will all help for any issue. But, this time, we need postcards. Congress likes to play show and tell. Supporters of beginning the impeachment process can easily bring stacks of postcards to the floor as an example of public support. C-SPAN viewers will notice that. The media will also notice that. And, often, that becomes the type of political thing that gets a life of its own and grows.

Note: For those worried about Gore, we'll get to that next week.


In The Federalist Papers (#70) Alexander Hamilton discusses why the Constitutional Convention vested complete responsibility for the executive branch of government in only one person:

It is evident from these considerations that the plurality of the executive tends to deprive the people of the two greatest securities they can have for the faithful exercise of any delegated power; first, the restraints of public opinion, which lose their efficacy, as well on account of the division of the censure attendant on bad measures among a number as on account of the uncertainty on whom it ought to fall; and, second, the opportunity of discovering with facility and clearness the misconduct of the persons they trust, in order either to their removal from office or to their actual punishment in cases which admit of it.


What did Hamilton say there? First, the public must know who is responsible, and hence, who to blame for problems. And second, if there is more than one executive, there exists more opportunity to cover-up misconduct.

With only few temporary exceptions, this single executive concept has been honored by every administration over the years. Until, that is, the Clintons came along.

"Vote for me and you get two for one," Bill Clinton bragged during their first presidential campaign. Right. And which one will take responsibility for the mistakes? Neither one, apparently.

As soon as the Clintons moved in the White House, Hillary moved into the executive offices and started interfering in government. She not only took over much of the administration's hiring and firing, reports show that she actually hand picked some of the cabinet officers, prosecutors and judges.

Thus, an untested and unelected Hillary Clinton intentionally placed herself directly in the middle of the political fray. Not because she is first lady, but because she wants to make political policy for the country -- initiate laws, rules and regulations that directly affect American citizens. What Hillary Clinton does not want, and will not accept, is personal responsibility for her actions.

Hillary is responsible for hiring the worst bunch of sleaze ever to walk the White House halls. It is Hillary who is responsible for allowing drug abuse (but not smoking) on the White House grounds. And it is Hillary who acts as enabler and facilitator for that philandering sociopath First Liar, simply so she can remain in a position of power.

She interferes in everything, including Bill's extramarital love affairs. For instance, as Dick Morris reports, the first part of last Monday's speech was Bill Clinton's, the second, the attack mode, was Hillary's. That's right, Hillary even had her hands in Bill's mea culpa speech last week, and used the opportunity to attack Starr in retribution for calling her before the grand jury. Study the use of words between his and hers. And while doing so, notice the origin of much of the White House propaganda.

In the text below, the order of the paragraphs of Clinton's speech was changed for comparison purposes only. To see the speech as written, visit the White House web page.

Bill wrote:

This afternoon in this room, from this chair, I testified before the Office of Independent Counsel and the grand jury. I answered their questions truthfully, including questions about my private life. Still I must take complete responsibility for all my actions, both public and private. And that is why I am speaking to you tonight.


Hillary added:

The independent counsel investigation moved on to my staff and friends, then into my private life, and now the investigation itself is under investigation. This has gone on too long, cost too much, and hurt too many innocent people.


Bill wrote:

I did have a relationship with Ms. Lewinsky that was not appropriate. In fact, it was wrong. It constituted a critical lapse in judgment and a personal failure on my part for which I am solely and completely responsible. I must take complete responsibility for all my actions, both public and private.


Hillary added:

It's nobody's business but ours. Even Presidents have private lives.


Bill wrote:

I know that my public comments and my silence about this matter gave a false impression. I misled people, including even my wife. I deeply regret that. I can only tell you I was motivated by many factors: first, by a desire to protect myself from the embarrassment of my own conduct.


Hillary added:

It is time to stop the pursuit of personal destruction and the prying into private lives, and get on with our national life. Our country has been distracted by this matter for too long. And I take my responsibility for my part in all of this; that is all I can do. Now it is time -- in fact, it is past time -- to move on. We have important work to do -- real opportunities to seize, real problems to solve, real security matters to face.


Bill wrote:

In addition, I had real and serious concerns about an independent counsel investigation that began with private business dealings 20 years ago -- dealings, I might add, about which an independent federal agency found no evidence of any wrongdoing by me or my wife over two years ago.


Hillary added:

And so, tonight, I ask you to turn away from the spectacle of the past seven months, to repair the fabric of our national discourse and to return our attention to all the challenges and all the promise of the next American century.


Bill Clinton must be impeached, or forced to resign. But, in the interim, Hillary Clinton must be removed from any control over government.
