Monica Lewinsky Breaks Silence, Reveals the Horrific Thing Bill Clinton Really Did to Her

Reported By Joe Saunders | March 10, 2018 at 10:27am

Democrats trying to ride the #MeToo movement to a blue wave in November just hit a major snag. After a failed presidential candidate ran on an “I’m with her” slogan, and amid nationwide revulsion over seemingly endless revelations of sexual misconduct by powerful men (overwhelmingly liberals) against women, the setup for a Democrat midterm campaign aimed at turning out liberal women in huge numbers seemed set.

But now comes the most infamous White House intern in history to remind America how badly that “I’m with her” candidate treated a woman who’d been preyed on – and how the Democratic Party really feels about women who come between the party and political power.

In a 3,500-word essay for Vanity Fair this month, former White House intern/Bill Clinton paramour Monica Lewinsky offered a new take on her side of the scandal that convulsed the country and nearly drove the 42nd president from office.

And even for conservatives who remember the late 1990s, it’s a reminder of the horrific treatment Lewinsky received at Bill Clinton’s hands. Lewinsky called her affair with Bill Clinton a “gross abuse of power” and alluded to the way Hillary Clinton and fellow Democrats tried to smear her as an “unstable stalker.” She noted that the road to the affair was “littered with inappropriate abuse of authority, station, and privilege. (Full stop.)”

“Now, at 44, I’m beginning (just beginning) to consider the implications of the power differentials that were so vast between a president and a White House intern,” she wrote. “I’m beginning to entertain the notion that in such a circumstance the idea of consent might well be rendered moot.”

And every one of those words shows that Democrats are lying when they claim to be the party that protects women.

For liberals — even for the ones too young to remember the 1990s personally — the Clinton years are what the party aspires to be. And the Clinton machine — the one that rigged the 2016 primary to ensure Hillary’s victory — won’t have it any other way. Hillary was supposed to have been the one who stood up for women’s rights, particularly when she delivered a famous speech in China (The New York Times called it a hint of Clinton’s future presidential run).

She built her campaign around the whole “first woman president” idea, making much of her ability to break the “glass ceiling” of being the first woman to win the nomination of a major party for president. (Former Republican presidential contender Carly Fiorina took that claim apart in an interview just as the 2016 Democratic National Convention was getting started.)

And in 2018, Democrats are planning to use the women’s issue again in midterm elections to try to cripple the presidency of Donald Trump. But Lewinsky’s essay is going to be a reminder of just what the Democratic Party was willing to do on Bill Clinton’s behalf in the 1990s, when he looked America in the eye on television and talked about a young White House intern like she was a two-dollar streetwalker in Little Rock.

“I did not have sexual relations with that woman, Miss Lewinsky,” Clinton said in televised address in January 1998, wagging his finger for emphasis.

Well, “that woman” remembered it differently. And she was in the unfortunate position to know. (One of her dresses was in an unfortunate position too, as it turned out.) But Democrats locked arms to protect Clinton then, and Hillary famously branded the young Lewinsky a narcissistic loony toon.”

Lewinsky was a threat to their political power then, and Clinton-machine Democrats are ruthless when it comes to threats to their power — as Juanita Broaddrick, Paula Jones and Kathleen Wiley can all confirm.

Lewinsky’s essay is a reminder of just how badly Democrats treat women who get in the way of their agenda. All the posturing in the world isn’t going to change that — and let’s hope the 2018 midterms prove it.

SHOCK: Liberals FINALLY Starting to Believe Bill Clinton’s Accusers

Reported By Warner Todd Huston November 15, 2017

After decades of liberals attacking the long list of women who have charged Bill Clinton with sexual misconduct, now, as a Republican Senate candidate faces similar allegations in Alabama, some liberals are all of a sudden warming to the idea that maybe… just maybe… Bill Clinton’s victims deserve a little consideration.

Of course, you’d have to be living under a rock not to know that a Republican Senate candidate in Alabama is having a spot of trouble with allegations that he sexually harassed teenaged girls back in the 1970s.

Judge Roy Moore, a man who owes no loyalty to the swamp dwellers in Washington D.C. (neither among Democrats nor their pals across the aisle in the Republican establishment) has been swamped by a list of women who claim that he pressured them for sex back in the late 1970s when he was just starting his legal career in his 30s.

While most of his accusers have only alleged that he acted like a dirty old man way back 40 years ago, one actually charged him with forcibly trying to molest her. 

There are many problems with the stories these women are peddling, not the least of which is why they all waited 40 years to clobber Moore with these allegations despite the fact that he has participated in several very controversial campaigns in the last 30 years.

Yes, the biggest question is, why now? It all smacks of political opportunism.

There are many other problems, too, with some questions verging on sounding like conspiracy theories. But this article is not about exploring all these theories and questions. No, this piece is about how the Roy Moore accusations may have finally caused some liberals to be “woke” to Bill Clinton’s sexual crimes.

You may be one of those who are not happy over the exercise of “what-aboutism.” That is the action of countering an attack on one of yours with examples of the same or worse behavior by one of theirs.

For instance, when someone brings up Roy Moore, many on the right have countered that by saying, “what about all these decades of sexual assaults committed by Bill Clinton?” 

Indeed, that is just what has been happening. After all, Bill Clinton has a long, long record of sexual assaults, adultery, and even rape. Worse, Bill Clinton has not only been excused for his behavior, he has been celebrated as one of the Democrat Party’s biggest ongoing rock stars.

So, how can liberals be so upset about Roy Moore, but not care at all about even worse crimes by their rock star, Bill Clinton?

Well, maybe that ice is melting a little bit?

The folks at Daily Wire noticed this sea change.

It began with a shocking op-ed from Michelle Goldberg in The New York Times, titled “I Believe Juanita.” Goldberg explains that she now believes the rape allegations against Bill Clinton — but she didn’t before because right-wingers were engaged in a vast right-wing conspiracy. In other words, any time it’s politically beneficial to ignore “politically motivated” allegations, ignore them; you can always buy it back decades later.

Goldberg continues by acknowledging that “we should look clearly at the credible evidence that Juanita Broaddrick told the truth when she accused Clinton of raping her. But revisiting the Clinton scandals in light of today’s politics is complicated as well as painful. Democrats are guilty of apologizing for Clinton when they shouldn’t have.” 

The liberal columnist goes on to proclaim that it was wrong to smear Clinton’s accusers with the Hillary Clinton-led bimbo eruption machine.

Goldberg ends her piece saying, “It’s fair to conclude that because of Broaddrick’s allegations, Bill Clinton no longer has a place in decent society.”

That is a HUGE admission for a liberal!

Goldberg isn’t alone. A host on the extremist left-wing cable network MSNBC also noted that the left needs to “have a reckoning” over the many decades of accusations against the Clintons.

Chris Hayes, normally a reliable, hardcore, sold out left-winger, took to Twitter to wonder aloud if the “what-aboutism” was a valid point where it concerns Bill Clinton.

“As gross and cynical and hypocrtical [yes, he spelled it wrong] as the right’s ‘what about Bill Clinton’ stuff is, it’s also true that Democrats and the center left are overdue for a real reckoning with the allegations against him,” Hayes wrote.

Hayes went on saying, “Read this account, in light of all we’ve been hearing and reading this last month, and ask yourself if it’s credible.” 

A left-winger like Hayes suddenly turning on the Clintons like this is quite a thing, isn’t it?

Of course, in the end, Rush Limbaugh has a sneaking suspicion why liberals are suddenly starting to eye the Clintons. In this week’s show, Limbaugh has noted that many on the left are just as sick and tired of the Clintons sucking up all the political oxygen in this country as the rest of us.

And maybe, just maybe, the long knives are coming out on the left to cut the Clintons down to size and get rid of them so that new people can raise up to take power in the Democrat Party.

Could be that, too.

The House Has Passed More Bills In 10 Months Of Trump Than Obama, Bush or Clinton

Reported By Jack Davis | November 14, 2017 at 8:10am

Productivity came to Washington along with President Donald Trump, according to House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy, R-Calif. In a Monday Facebook post, McCarthy noted that in Trump’s first few months in office, more bills have passed the House than under any of the previous four presidents.

“Over 400 bills have passed the House during Donald J. Trump’s first 10 months. That’s more than under Obama, Bush, or Clinton,” he posted.

McCarthy displayed a graph that showed the average numbers of bills passed in the first 10 months of a presidency going back to President George H.W. Bush was 306. Under the Trump administration, the House has passed 407, 33 percent above the average.

According to McCarthy, the number of bills passed in the first 10 months under past administrations were:

President Barack Obama, 353;

President George W. Bush, 215;

President Bill Clinton, 263; and

President George H.W. Bush, 292.

Earlier this fall, McCarthy said the House needs help from the Senate to translate their achievements into achievements for the American people.

“Think what we’ve been able to achieve, the number of bills,” he said in September, according to Newsmax. “More so than any modern Congress you had in the first year of a new presidency: 16 human trafficking bills, 16 congressional review acts, 14 signed into law. In the history of America, only one other Congress has ever done one of those.”

“The last time a Republican majority did that, the iPhone wasn’t invented,” he said. “We need a little help on the other chamber.”

While McCarthy appeared pleased by the output of the current administration, his excitement grew when referencing the GOP tax plan.

The bill is expected to pass the House this week.

“It brings the lowest rate for small business, the lowest it has been in 80 years,” said McCarthy, who believes the bill will help all Americans. “That is what creates new jobs. That is what we have to continue to work on.”

McCarthy criticized Democrat opposition to the bill, citing America’s grew sluggish under the Obama administration.

“You know the last eight years under Barack Obama, if you take his very best growth year, that is actually lower than the worst year under Bill Clinton. We have got to get America moving again.”

“Get America moving again” seems to be the theme, as Trump wraps up his tour of Asia, and returns to the U.S.

He is expected to meet with House Republicans on Thursday in an effort to ensure passage of the legislation, which is one of Trump’s top priorities.

GREAT NEWS: DOJ Lifts Gag Order, Frees Informant to Speak to Congress on Russia Bribery Case With Ties to Clintons

Reported By Andrew Kerr | October 26, 2017 at 8:45am

URL of the original posting site:

The Justice Department lifted a gag order Wednesday that will allow a former FBI informant to speak with Congress about information he uncovered involving a Russian bribery scheme linked to a controversial uranium deal in 2010.

The move comes as Congress renews its focus on the Obama administration’s approval of Russian-owned energy company Rosatom’s purchase of Uranium One, a company based in Canada that controlled 20 percent of U.S. uranium.

Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton led the State Department when it approved the deal back in 2010. Eight other U.S. government agencies also approved the deal.

Three congressional committees launched investigations into the deal last week after The Hill reported that the FBI had gathered substantial evidence that the Russian nuclear industry officials involved in the deal were involved in a racketeering scheme as early as 2009.

However, the Department of Justice waited until 2014 to bring any charges on the evidence first gathered in 2009 and 2010.

The CEO of Tenex, a subsidiary of Rosatom, pleaded guilty to money laundering in 2015.

Congressional Republicans now seek to discover who knew what, and when. Republicans have also expressed concerns about Clinton’s connection to the interested parties in the nuclear deal. The Clinton Foundation reportedly received millions of dollars in contributions from interested parties in the transaction, and former President Bill Clinton received $500,000 for a speech in Russia around the time of the deal.

The FBI informant, who hasn’t been identified by name, went undercover for five years to obtain intelligence on Russia’s efforts to acquire a share of the U.S. uranium market.

Justice Department spokesman Ian Prior said the DOJ would cooperate with the three open congressional investigations.

“As of tonight, the Department of Justice has authorized the information to disclose to the chairmen and ranking members of the Senate Committee on the Judiciary, the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform, and the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence, as well as one member of each of their staffs, any information or documents he has concerning alleged corruption or bribery involving transactions in the uranium market,” Prior said in a statement Wednesday, according to The Washington Free Beacon.

Justice Department spokeswoman Sarah Isgur Flores confirmed to The Hill that the undercover FBI informant is cleared to disclose to Congress “any information or documents he has concerning alleged corruption or bribery involving transactions in the uranium market, including but not limited to anything related to Vadim Mikerin, Rosatom, Tenex, Uranium One, or the Clinton Foundation.”

The informant’s lawyer, Victoria Toensing, told The Hill her client has information relating to “the Russian nuclear bribery case and the efforts he witnessed by Moscow to gain influence with the Clintons in hopes of winning favorable uranium decisions from the Obama administration.”

“He is now able and willing to talk with the congressional committees seeking his testimony, though I will be working with all parties to ensure his identity remains confidential to ensure his safety,” she added.

But some high-ranking Democrats have called foul on the Republican’s renewed focus on the 2010 uranium deal.

California Rep. Adam Schiff, the ranking Democrat on the House Intelligence Committee, told MSNBC’s Andrea Mitchell on Wednesday the investigations are a “partisan effort to distract” from the real issue at hand — special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation into President Donald Trump’s alleged collusions with the Russians during the 2016 election.

Trump told reporters Wednesday he believes the uranium investigation will quickly swell to Watergate proportions.

The uranium sale to Russia and the way it was done was so underhanded. With tremendous amounts of money being passed, I actually think that’s Watergate: modern age,” Trump said, as reported by the New York Post.

DOJ Lifts Gag Order on Uranium One Informant, Hillary and Obama Feeling the Heat

URL of the original posting site:

The Justice Department announced Wednesday night that it had lifted a gag order on a former FBI informant who could provide testimony to Congress about an inquiry linked to a 2010 Obama-era deal that transferred ownership of a uranium mining firm to a Russian-owned company.

Fox News reported the department said it authorized the informant to speak to the Senate Judiciary Committee, House Oversight Committee, and the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence, as well as select staffers.

The Justice Department said the informant could provide “any information or documents he has concerning alleged corruption or bribery involving transactions in the uranium market,” including Russian company Rosatom, its subsidiary Tenex, Uranium One and the Clinton Foundation.

The FBI said in court documents and in interviews that they had gathered enough evidence to prove that Rosatom-connected officials were engaged in a bribery scheme that included kickbacks and money laundering in 2010, Circa reported.

Despite that little tidbit, the U.S. government approved the sale. Not surprising considering who was in office. Now we have a chance to know what really went down.

The informant’s attorney, Victoria Toensing, told Fox Business Network Monday that her client could “tell what all the Russians were talking about during the time that all these bribery payments were made.”

Toensing said her client, an American businessman who reportedly worked as an undercover FBI confidential witness, was prevented from testifying by former attorneys general Eric Holder and Loretta Lynch after having signed a non-disclosure agreement, according to Fox News.

Circa reported that Toensing also said the informant has pertinent information regarding Russia’s attempts to gain access to former President Bill Clinton and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, to influence the Obama administration’s decision on the purchase of Uranium One.

After the sale of Uranium One to Rosatom was completed, millions of dollars flowed to the Clinton Foundation from Russian officials, as reported by The Hill.

This FBI informant can also testify about comments made by FBI agents that suggested “political pressure was exerted during the Justice Department probe of the Russia corruption case and that there was specific evidence that could have scuttled approval of the Uranium One deal if it became public,” according to The Hill.

There is little doubt that if Clinton had won the presidency, this gag order would still be enforced.

Thus, the truth about who really colluded with the Russians would likely never be known. Hopefully, the informant’s testimony will shed some light on what happened during these deals and the truth behind them can come out. You can bet this news has former President Barack Obama and Clinton sweating bullets.

You can also bet the mainstream media will take its sweet time covering this news because it doesn’t fit their Trump-hating agenda.
