Will these vast right wing conspiracies never stop?
The papers of Diane Blair, a political science professor Hillary Clinton described as her “closest friend” before Blair’s death in 2000, record years of candid conversations with the Clintons on issues ranging from single-payer health care to Monica Lewinsky.
Diane Blair’s husband, Jim Blair, a former chief counsel at Tyson Foods Inc. who was at the center of “Cattlegate,” a 1994 controversy involving the unusually large returns Hillary Clinton made while trading cattle futures contracts in the 1970s, donated his wife’s papers to the University of Arkansas Special Collections library in Fayetteville after her death.
I have no idea why Diane thought that it was a good idea to write all this down or to keep it around or why her husband chose not to put a lock on this material until a few decades had passed.
Hillary Clinton defended her husband in a phone call with Blair. She said her husband had made a mistake by fooling around with the “narcissistic loony toon” Lewinsky, but was driven to it in part by his political adversaries, the loneliness of the presidency, and her own failures as a wife.
She told Blair that the affair did not include sex “within any real meaning” of the term and noted President Clinton “tried to manage” Monica after they broke up but things spiraled “beyond control.”
So yes, Hillary is exactly the role model for feminists that everyone assumed after the affair happened.
Hillary blames the Republicans and herself for Bill Clinton’s affair, makes excuses for her husband and laughably talks about “the loneliness of the presidency.” I doubt very much that Bill Clinton has ever felt lonely in his life. Obama maybe. Bill, no.
“Ever since he took office they’ve been going thru personal tragedy… and immediately all the ugly forces started making up hateful things about them, pounding on them.”
So Bill Clinton had an affair because of the vast right wing conspiracy saying mean things about him? So why did he have all his previous affairs?
“She thinks she was not smart enough, not sensitive enough, not free enough of her own concerns and struggles to realize the price he was paying.”
Hillary Clinton. Feminist role model. It doesn’t seem to have occurred to her that her husband would act the same way regardless of whom he was married to.
Hillary Clinton told Blair she had received “a letter from a psychologist who does family therapy and sexual infidelity problems,” who told the Yale Law School graduate, “most men with fidelity problems [were] raised by two women and felt conflicted between them.”
Maybe this release was deliberately meant to make us feel sorry for Hillary, but having this poor of a grasp on reality doesn’t exactly qualify her for any responsible positions in government.
In her conversations with Blair, the first lady gave her husband credit for trying to end the affair with Lewinsky, and said he did not take advantage of his White House intern.
Clearly this is the woman who should be the country’s first female president as an inspiration to young girls everywhere.
“It was a lapse, but she says to his credit he tried to break it off, tried to pull away, tried to manage someone who was clearly a ‘narcissistic loony toon’; but it was beyond control,” wrote Blair.
Speaking of narcissistic loony toons, there are the Clintons.
In a Dec. 3, 1993, diary entry, Blair recounted a conversation with the first lady about “Packwood”—a reference to then-Sen. Bob Packwood, an influential Republican on health care embroiled in a sexual harassment scandal.
“HC tired of all those whiney women, and she needs him on health care,” wrote Blair.
Noting Clinton allies had “really been trying to keep the women’s groups in line since Paula Jones filing,” Bill Clinton, according to Blair’s account, was concerned feminist groups “might blow sky high” if he appointed Arnold to the Supreme Court.
That was how the Clintons really saw feminist groups. And women.
Campaign operatives Loretta Lynch and Nancy McFadden wrote the memo, addressed to campaign manager David Wilhelm.
The first item on the itinerary discussed “GF,” a reference to Gennifer Flowers, the actress and adult model who had recently disclosed her 12-year affair with Bill Clinton.
“Exposing GF: completely as a fraud, liar and possible criminal to stop this story and related stories, prevent future non-related stories and expose press inaction and manipulation,” said the memo.
In 1998 Bill Clinton admitted he had had a sexual relationship with Flowers.
The Clintons really do embody the politics of personal destruction. And like Obama, they push a covert radical left-wing agenda that they aren’t open about.
On Feb. 23, 1993, Blair joined the Clintons for a family dinner at the White House. The subject of health care reform came up.
“At dinner, [Hillary] to [Bill] at length on the complexities of health care—thinks managed competition a crock; single-payer necessary; maybe add to Medicare,” Blair wrote.
The account is at odds with public statements by the former First Lady that she never supported the single-payer option.
In an interview with the New York Times as she ran for president in 2008, Hillary Clinton said she had never seriously considered adopting a single-payer system, in which the government, using funds appropriated from taxpayers, pays for all health care expenses.
Again, not exactly a surprise, but now we have another Hillary lie to add to the list. But maybe Hillary is not all bad on foreign policy.
At the time, however, Hillary Clinton was not on board with the use of deadly force. According to Blair’s April 29, 1993 account, the First Lady said she “was very much against any intervention—had been killing each other for 900 yrs.”
Since leaving the White House, however, Hillary Clinton has said that she favored earlier intervention in the Balkans.
But all Hillary really cared about was getting health care passed. And she was worried that it would interfere with her agenda.
And that’s true to who Hillary is. It’s ultimately all about her.
