Hillary Clinton and her driver were cruising along a country road one evening when an ancient cow loomed in front of the car. The driver tried to avoid it but couldn't - the aged bovine was struck and killed.
Hillary told her driver to go up to the farmhouse and explain to the owners what had happened. She stayed in the car making phone calls to lobbyists.
About an hour later the driver staggered back to the car with his clothes in disarray. He was holding a half-empty bottle of expensive wine in one hand, a rare, huge Cuban cigar in the other, and was smiling happily, smeared with lipstick.
"What happened to you," asked Hillary? "Well," the driver replied, "the farmer gave me the cigar, his wife gave me the wine, and their beautiful twin daughters made passionate love to me!"
"My God, what did you tell them?" asked Hillary.
The driver replied, "I just stepped inside the door and said, I'm Hillary Clinton's driver and I've just killed the old cow. The rest happened so fast I couldn't stop it.
First some insight (and facts) to the past, and to the present. . . . .
Presidential Observations By The Secret Service
By Dave Kulow
We had a neighbor when I lived in DC who was part of the secret service presidential detail for many years.
His stories of Kennedy and Johnson were the same as those I heard from the guys who flew the presidents' plane --- yes, Kennedy did have Marilyn Monroe flown in for secret "dates," and LBJ was a typical Texas "good ole boy" womanizer. Nixon, Bush 41, and Carter never cheated on their wives. Clinton cheated, but couldn't match Kennedy or LBJ in style or variety. The information below is accurate.
The elder Bush and current president Bush make it a point to thank and take care of the air crews who fly them around. When the president flies, there are several planes that also go -- one carries the armored limo, another the security detail, plus usually a press aircraft. Both Bush's made it a point to stay home on holidays, so the Air Force and security people could have a day with their families.
Hillary Clinton was arrogant and orally abusive to her security detail. She forbade her daughter, Chelsea, from exchanging pleasantries with them Sometimes Chelsea, miffed at her mother's obvious conceit and mean spiritedness ignored her demands and exchanged pleasantries regardless, but never in her mother's presence. Chelsea really was a nice, kindhearted, and lovely young lady. The consensus opinion was that Chelsea loved her Mom but did not like her. Hillary Clinton was continuously rude and abrasive to those who were charged to protect her life.
Her security detail dutifully did their job, as professionals should, but they all loathed her and wanted to be on a different detail. Hillary Clinton was despised by the Secret Service as a whole.
Former President Bill Clinton was much more amiable than his wife Often the Secret Service would cringe at the verbal attacks Hillary would use against her husband.
They were embarrassed for his sake by the manner and frequency in which she verb ally insulted him, sometimes in the presence of the Secret Service, and sometimes behind closed doors. Even behind closed doors Hillary Clinton would scream and holler so loudly that everyone could hear what she was saying.
Many felt sorry for President Clinton and most wondered why he tolerated it instead of just divorcing his "attack dog" wife. It was crystal clear that the Clinton's neither liked nor respected each other and this was true long before the Monica Lewinsky scandal. Theirs was genuinely a "marriage of convenience."
Chelsea was much closer to her father than her mother, even after the Lewinsky scandal, which hurt her gravely.
Bill Clinton did in fact have charisma, and occasionally would smile at or shake hands with his security detail. Still, he always displayed an obvious air of superiority, believed him to be disingenuous, false, and that he did nothing without a motive that in some way would enhance his image and political career. He was polite, but not kind.
They did not particularly like him and nobody trusted him.
WHAT COULD HAVE BEEN:
Al Gore was the male version of Hillary Clinton. They were friendlier toward each other than either of them was towards former President Clinton. They were not intimate, so please don't read that in. They were very close in a political way.
Tipper Gore was generally nice and pleasant. She initially liked Hillary but soon after the election she had her "pegged" and no longer liked her or associated with her except for events that were politically obligatory.
Al Gore was far more left wing than Bill Clinton.
Al Gore resented Bill Clinton and thought he was too "centrist." He despised all Republicans. His hatred was bitter and this was long before he Announced for the Presidency. This hatred was something that he and Hillary had in common.
They often said as much, even in the presence of their security detail. Neither of them trusted Bill Clinton and, the Secret Service opined, neither of them even liked Bill Clinton. Bill Clinton did have some good qualities, whereas Al Gore and Hillary had none, in the view of their security details. Al Gore, like Hillary, was very rude and arrogant toward his security detail. He was extremely unappreciative and would not hesitate to scold them in the presence of their peers for minor details over which they had no control. Al Gore also looked down on them, as they finally observed and learned with certainty on one occasion. Al got angry at his offspring and pointed at his detail and said, "Do you want to grow up and be like them?" Word of this insult by the former Vice-president quickly spread and he became as disliked by the Secret Service as Hillary.
Most of them prayed Al Gore would not be elected President, and they really did have private celebrations in a few of their homes after President Bush won. This was not necessarily to celebrate President Bush's election, but to celebrate Al Gore's defeat.
Everyone in the Secret Service wants to be on First Lady Laura Bush's detail. Without exception, they concede that she is perhaps the nicest and most kind person they have ever had the privilege of serving. Where Hillary patently refused to allow her picture to be taken with her security detail, Laura Bush doesn't even have to be asked, she offers. She doesn't just shake their hand and say, "Thank you."
Very often, she will give members of her detail a kind hearted hug to express her appreciation. There is nothing false about her. This is her genuine nature. Her security detail considers her to be a "breath of fresh air."
They joke that comparing Laura Bush with Hillary Clinton is like comparing "Mother Teresa" with the "Wicked Witch of the North.
"Likewise, the Secret Service considers President Bush to be a gem of a man to work for. He always treats them with genuine respect and he always trusts and listens to their expert advice. They really like the Crawford, Texas detail. Every time the president goes to Crawford he has a Bar-B-Q for his security detail and he helps serve their meals. He sits with them, eats with them, and talks with them. He knows each of them by their first name, and calls them by their first name as a show of affection. He always asks about their family, the names of which he always remembers. They believe that he is deeply and genuinely appreciative of their service! They could not like, love, or respect anyone more than President Bush.
Most of them did not know they would feel this way, until they had an opportunity to work for him and learn that his manner was genuine and consistent. It has never changed since he began his Presidency. He always treats them with the utmost respect, kindness, and compassion.

The US Navy welcomed the latest member of its fleet.
USS William Jefferson Clinton CVS1
The ship is the first of its kind in the Navy and is a standing legacy to President Clinton and his foresight in military budget cuts. The ship is constructed nearly entirely from recycled aluminum and is completely solar powered with a top speed of 5 knots. It boasts an arsenal comprised of one F14 Tomcat or F18 Hornet aircraft, which although they cannot be launched or captured on the 100 foot flight deck, form a very menacing presence.
As a standing order there are no firearms allowed on board. The 20 person crew is completely diversified and includes members of all races, creeds, sex, and sexual orientations.
The ship's purpose is not defined as a unit of national defense. In fact, in times of conflict its orders are to remain in hiding in Canada. The ship will be used extensively for social experimentation and other jobs the ex-commander in chief and his wife see of value.

Hillary's new makeover for her Presidential run
HILLARY'S EXPERIENCE IS AT SURVIVING
By Dick Morris
TheHill.com, April 25, 2007
Polls suggest that the leading attribute attracting voters to Hillary's presidential candidacy is her "experience," a virtue which contrasts, presumably, with the lack of it in Senator Barack Obama, her chief rival. But a close examination of her record as first lady and as New York Senator suggests that her experience is largely in the avoidance of death by scandal. Were it to be captured in a television series, it would certainly not rise to the level of "Commander In Chief" and probably not even to that of "West Wing." It would find its televised metaphor in the reality series "Survivor."
Consider what her experience has been. She burst forth on the national stage with two tasks in her husband's administration: The selection of the nation's first female Attorney General and the design and adoption of a comprehensive program of health care reform. Her efforts to designate an Attorney General hamstrung the new Administration for months as two nominees, in succession, had to withdraw their names from consideration. Finally, at the eleventh hour, she urged her husband to appoint Florida's Janet Reno, a selection Bill Clinton would come to describe as "my worst mistake." In the bargain, she suggested the appointment of Lani Guanier as head of the civil rights division, a job she was shortly forced to relinquish when her radical views became known, another embarrassment for the new Administration. Her other selections for the Justice Department, the White House staff and the Treasury were her three law partners: Web Hubbell, Vince Foster, and William Kennedy, appointments which culminated in one imprisonment, one suicide, and one forced resignation.
Her other assignment, health care reform, collapsed in such a debacle that it cost her party control of both houses of Congress, a fate from which it took twelve years to recover.
Beyond these initial tasks, her main focus in the Administration was scandal defense. From Jennifer Flowers to Whitewater to the FBI file affair to the travel office firings to her Commodities Market winnings to the missing Rose Law Firm billing records to the Paula Jones scandal, she orchestrated the Administration's defense against scandal allegations. In the process, she almost got herself indicted for perjury and obstruction of justice.
And her advice in handling these matters was uniformly bad. It was Hillary who counseled Bill not to settle the Paula Jones lawsuit even when the plaintiffs called for neither an apology nor payment and she who stonewalled the release of Whitewater documents even when it led to the appointment of a special prosecutor. When the prosecutor whose appointment she had caused heard about the depositions in the Paula Jones case she had refused to settle, the Monica Lewinsky scandal eventuated.
During the period of 1995-1997, the period of the Clinton Administration's greatest achievements, she was nowhere to be seen, focusing instead on writing It Takes A Village, and on dodging criminal inquiry. She did not participate in the formulation of a balanced budget, nor in welfare reform legislation, nor in the reduction of crime that stemmed from the 1994 anti-crime bill.
Her experience continued when her race for the Senate and its aftermath became, in turn, mired in scandal. The pardon of the FALN terrorists to get Latino support in New York, that of the New Square Hassidim to get Hillary Jewish support, and the clemency shown toward Hillary's brothers' clients to get them financial support caused her ratings to plunge to their lowest level in March of 2001 as she took her Senate seat. The theft of White House gifts, almost $200,000 of which had to be returned, did nothing to endear her to the electorate.
Since then, Hillary has done nothing of note in the Senate except to vote for the Iraq War, a position she has since disavowed, and to win the applause of her colleagues for not being partisan and obstinate. Her main efforts have been directed at raising massive sums of money for herself and her colleagues and making a lot writing and selling her memoirs. Her efforts on behalf of New York after 9-11 have been exposed as largely derivative of those of her colleague, the more effective Chuck Schumer.
She has passed no important legislation, except for twenty bills renaming post offices and courthouses and congratulating Alexander Hamilton, Shirley Chisolm, Harriet Tubman, the American Republic, and the Syracuse men's and women's Lacrosse team on their respective accomplishments.
Is this the experience upon which her candidacy is based? Did I leave anything out?
On June 29, 2004, at an appearance with other Democratic women senators on behalf of Sen. Barbara Boxer, Sen. Clinton said. "we're saying that for America to get back on track, we're probably going to cut that short (refering to the tax cuts) and not give it to you. We're going to take things away from you on behalf of the common good."
U.S. Sen. Hillary Clinton said on May 23, 2004 that House Democratic leader Nancy Pelosi was right to say that President Bush "has on his shoulders the death of many more [U.S.] troops" because of his military misjudgments, explaining, "I know a little bit about" being commander in chief. "We have to face the fact that we need a larger active duty military," she told Fox. "We cannot continue to stretch our troops, both active duty, Guard and Reserve, to the breaking point, which is what we're doing now."
During her husband's administration, U.S. troop strength was cut back from 18 active duty divisions to 10. And, we wonder why our National Guard is over extended?!
From Dick Morris. How typical of the Clintons to refuse to release the names of the library donors or the amount of their contributions. And how exemplary of their shady ethics are the known contributors: Denise Rich and others who benefited from Bill's outrageous presidential pardons.
Why did Bill Clinton build a library with hidden donations and use the opening ceremony to promote his wife's candidacy for president three weeks after his party's defeat? Because he could.
BEWARE OF THIS FRAUD. In the quest to look more conservative, Hillary Clinton has now eyed Immigration as a top issue. The supposed "North Eastern Centrist" (HA,HA) has been trying to paint herself as tough on Immigration reform and our borders. She's hoping that some Republican voters who consider it their main issue will jump to her side in 2008.
In case you have forgotten . . . .
The Clinton Legacy
Below is a list of the Clinton scandals and their 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 (without cause and several of these employees had 20+ years of faithful service) in favor of hiring relatives and friends. And, they fabricated lies and sicced the FBI on them.
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 - Accused then-Gov Bill Clinton of an illicit proposition in 1991.
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.
Lewinskygate - 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.
Missing Nuclear Codesgate - The country was vulnerable to a nuclear attack and unable to retaliate while Bill Clinton misplaced the nuclear codes for 4-hours! The first President to ever do so!
Lootergate - Bill and Hillary Clinton left the Whitehouse with silverware, furniture, and many items that were donated to the White 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.
A book that ought to be required reading reading for people who care about politics is Edward Klein's The Truth About Hillary.
Among the many revelations in this book:
- How Bill cheated on Hillary from the very start of their relationship at Yale -- but she married him anyway, in a "Faustian bargain" that accepted his womanizing as the price of political power
- "Bill owes me": how Hillary allowed Bill to get away with his infidelities to make him fall deeper and deeper into her debt
- Clinton insider: "Hillary never wanted to be a wife. She wanted to be president"
- Hillary confidant confirms: she knew about Monica long before the affair became public
- How Hillary personally stage-managed and coordinated the damage-control effort in response to the Lewinsky scandal
- Juanita Broaddrick: her encounter with Hillary that told her "she knew" Bill had raped her, and that Hillary only wanted Broaddrick to keep quiet
- The Hillary White House staffer known as "Mother Superior" charged with keeping women away from Bill -- and Bill away from them
- How Hillary knowingly allowed women to be hired that were regarded as "safe" for Bill to have affairs with
- How Bill has gone back to his old womanizing tricks since Hillary's election to the Senate. His torrid affair with a stunning divorcee who lived near the Clintons in Chappaqua
- How Bill tried to talk Hillary into running for President in 2004 -- and why she refused
- Hillary's temporary betrayal of her old leftist allies to build a moderate image for her White House run
- Why Hillary regards Howard Dean's naming as DNC Chairman as a threat to her
- The cynical politicking behind Hillary's hawkishness on the Iraq war
- How Hillary banned wearing military uniforms in the White House -- and then lied about it later on
- How Hillary campaigned for herself under the guise of campaigning for John Kerry in 2004 -- knowing that her future depended on his not winning
- How Hillary made her first moves in the 2008 campaign within days of Kerry's defeat
- The New Hillary: how she's remodeling herself as a "God-fearing, church-going Bible reading Democrat from a Southern state" -- and is also "Botoxed to the hilt," according to a physician who knows
- Why one former Clinton Administration official warns: "Hillary Clinton needs to be kept away from the White House for the rest of her life"
Hillary Clinton Cover Up Scandal
January 20, 2006
In 1999, Clinton secretary of Housing and Urban Development Henry Cisneros was forced to resign from office after admitting that he had made secret payments to a mistress while mayor of San Antonio, Texas. During his FBI background check, as it turned out, Cisneros had lied about the adulterous relations, his payments to the mistress, the extent of his income, and his IRS tax filings.
So far, nothing unusual there – after all, he was a crony of Bill Clinton.
What happened next, however, is what notches the scandal up from Clinton politics-as-usual to a major cover-up that demands to be exposed – before one of the principle players completes her march to the Oval Office.
According to the New York Daily News, when independent counsel Barrett continued to investigate the tax fraud charges stemming from Cisnero’s under-the-table payments, he ran into a stone cold wall in the person of then-IRS Commissioner Margaret M. Richardson. Ms Richardson, not so coincidentally, was, and remains, a close friend of one Hillary Rodham Clinton.
It is Ms Richardson’s role (and, by inference, Ms Clinton’s) that has now been cut from David Barrett’s report. In fact, according to the Daily News, the report went through 26 drafts “because Democrat law firm Williams & Connolly successfully pressured Barrett to remove a section of the report naming her (Margaret Richardson), a source said.”
Williams and Connolly, again not so coincidentally, represents not only Cisneros – but also Bill and Hillary Clinton.
Let me quickly refresh your memory as to where you may have heard the name Margaret Richardson before – because it appears this is not the only time she was willing to carry water for Bill and Hillary Clinton when it came to abusing the IRS to protect their political interests. .
Here’s a revealing excerpt from the pen of the late New York Post editorial page editor Eric Breindel in February of 1998:
“ The 1993 Travelgate affair represents an early indication of the administration's seeming willingness to use the IRS for political purposes. The unjustifiable dismissal of White House Travel Office chief Billy Dale and his small staff as part of an apparent effort to move friends of the first family into a potentially lucrative office was attended by slanderous allegations of wrongdoing, by an FBI probe and finally by a criminal trial. (A jury acquitted the Travel Office team on all counts almost immediately; Congress subsequently voted to pay the group's legal fees with government funds.)
“In addition, Dale himself, along with one aide, was subjected to an IRS audit. But no malfeasance on the part of the long-time government worker or his colleague was identified. The audit's impact consisted largely in heightening the disruption to Billy Dale's life.
“Interestingly, despite administration protests that it has never even contemplated using the IRS as a political weapon (‘We're not that stupid,’ said presidential spokesman Mike McCurry recently alluding to the likelihood that such abuse would quickly come to light), Congress' brief Travelgate probe led to the discovery of a disturbing White House memo.
“Referring to the impending Dale audit, a White House lawyer informed colleagues that the IRS commissioner ‘is on top of it.’ At the time, Margaret Milner Richardson, a long-standing Hillary Clinton friend, headed the IRS. (It scarcely needs to be noted that White House staffers, lawyers included, aren't meant to know about prospective IRS audits.)
“The names Billy Dale and Paula Jones are, by now, well known. In this sense, the national media's failure to note that the IRS subjected both of them to audits is a striking sin of omission. Even more revealing, however, is the fact that an unusually large number of right-of-center not-for-profits are likewise undergoing tax probes most for the very first time.
“Among the organizations and institutions targeted by tax authorities during Clinton's tenure are: the Heritage Foundation, long a major conservative think-tank; the Christian Coalition; National Review, the semi-monthly "Bible" of the conservative movement since its founding by William F. Buckley Jr. more than 40 years ago; the Western Journalism Center; the National Rifle Association; and too many other right-wing groups all hostile to the Clinton agenda even to mention.
