Robert Johnson, Obama comments, January 2008, something in the neighborhood, said it in his book, drug use, Clintons, black issues

I have revisited the comment made by BET founder and Hillary Clinton supporter, Robert Johnson. Johnson made the comment at a campaign rally in Columbia, South Carolina in January 2008. The apparent reference in the comment was drug use by Obama (mentioned in Obama’s book) and the inference that Obama may still be doing something in the neighborhood. Below are the quote by Robert Johnson, his apology and explanation and a rebuttal by Obama spokesman Bill Burton:
“I am frankly insulted,” Johnson declared, “that the Obama campaign would imply that we are so stupid that we would think Hillary and Bill Clinton, who have been deeply and emotionally involved in black issues since Barack Obama was doing something in the neighborhood -­ and I won’t say what he was doing, but he said it in the book -­ when they have been involved.”

Robert Johnson’s apology:
“My comments today were referring to Barack Obama’s time spent as a community organizer, and nothing else. Any other suggestion is simply irresponsible and incorrect,”

Obama spokesman Bill Burton:

“His tortured explanation doesn’t hold up against his original statement. And it’s troubling that neither the campaign nor Senator Clinton — who was there as the remark was made – is willing to condemn it as they did when another prominent supporter recently said a similar thing.”

I did not give Johnson’s comment much thought when I first heard it. Now, with all the other pieces of the puzzle forming a disturbing picture of the real Obama, Johnson’s comment has more significance for me. What has been going on in the neighborhood?

Ken Starr, Obama, Hillary Clinton, Howard Wolfson, compares Obama to Ken Starr

Howard Wolfson, a top Hillary Clinton aide, compared Barack Obama to independent prosecutor Kenneth Starr.

Clinton spokesman Howard Wolfson said “Obama’s statement that he plans to be more critical of Clinton’s record is reminiscent of the attacks the Clintons endured during the investigations in the 1990s.”
“I for one do not believe that imitating Ken Starr is the way to win a Democratic primary election for president. But perhaps that theory will be tested.”

Ken Starr headed up the investigation that led to former President Clinton’s impeachment. Clinton is trying to once again  depict herself as a victim of enemies out to get her.

Once again, if you have any question or doubts about Hillary Clinton, I urge you to read “Rewriting History” by Dick Morris. Here are some interesting passages:

“While I was working for the Clintons, I had firsthand experience with the tactics they used to distract, delay, and derail the work of special prosecutor Kenneth Starr.”

“Most famously, Hillary sought to blame the entire Lewinsky scandal not on Bill, but on enemies of the progressive cause. It was on the Today show, shortly after the Monica scandal broke, that Hillary famously said of Ken Starr’s investigation: “I do believe that this is a battle. I mean, look at the very people who are involved in this. They have popped up in other settings. This is–the great story here for anybody willing to find it and write about it and explain it is this vast right wing conspiracy that has been conspiring against my husband since the day he announced for president….””

Well, Hillary, I am writing about it. I don’t think I have to explain it though.

Clintons, Clinton Library, Clinton Papers, documents withheld, Marc and Denise Rich, criminals pardoned

Marc Rich, a fugitive pardoned by Bill Clinton, Denise Rich, the exwife of Marc Rich who donated  $2,000 in 1999 to Hillary Clinton’s Senate campaign, $5,000 to a related PAC and $450,000 to help build the Clinton library, are back in the news again. Documents related to the pardon of Marc Rich and other controversial figures are being withheld from disclosure by the Clinton Library. The decision to withhold the documents came from guidance from Bill Clinton.

Hillary Clinton, Bill Clinton, Rewriting history, Dick Morris, Lies, Deception, Half Truths

US voters have short memories and many are oblivious to the truth and resemble more cattle been driven to the slaughter.

I have been revisiting “Rewriting History”, by Dick Morris, that was published in 2004 and made the NY Times bestseller list. Dick Morris was an advisor to Bill Clinton and became his campaign manager in the 1996 election. Dick Morris spent a lot of time with Bill and Hillary Clinton and knew them intimately. Dick Morris has become a serious critic of Bill and Hillary Clinton and in “Rewriting History” he reveals the truth about Hillary, the truth that only an insider and confidant could have. It still amazes me how much of the public ignores or refuses to believe the true nature of the Clintons. Here are some excerpts from “Rewriting History.” I urge you to read the book for yourself and do corroborating research.

“But some of Hillary’s hidden side is indeed dark.”

“Both of the Clintons are masters of subterfuge.”

“By contrast, Hillary knows full well who she is and what parts of her must never be exposed to public view. She reminds herself consciously, day after day, which parts of herself to hide and which to expose. Where Bill’s instinct for deception is neurotic, Hillary’s is opportunistic. He wants to hide his private life from our eyes; Hillary seeks to conceal her character from our view. But the things that Hillary hides are integral to her political essence. They are who she is and what makes her tick. Her trickery is designed to hide her most basic character and instincts from all of us.”

“The Clintons released their tax returns, but not for 1978 or 1979. Why not? I wondered. When the scandal about Hillary’s winnings in cattle future emerged, I had my answer: They were apparently anxious to hide her profits, lest there be questions about insider trading…”
“In fact, Hillary did not report her commodities profits on her
1980 tax returns; indeed, she reported a loss of $ 1,000. In April 1984, Clinton attorney, David Kendall had to announce that the Clintons were paying $ 14,615 in additional taxes, interest, and penalty on their underreported income for these years.”

A lot has been written about the “Whitewater Scandal”, but what Dick Morris has written is a must read. Here is a small sample:
“Hillary writes warmly of Susan McDougal for choosing years in jail rather than answer Starr’s questions. “Susan was suffering in jail for refusing to testify before the Whitewater Grand Jury.” But Hillary hasn’t always been so nice about Susan McDougal. When it looked as though she might turn on the Clintons, Hillary told me: “She is such a liar. She worked for Zubin Mehta and stole his silver. She’s crazy, unstable, and totally dishonest. You can’t trust a thing she says.” Susan was eventually acquitted of stealing from Mehta.”

“While I was working for the Clintons, I had firsthand experience with the tactics they used to distract, delay, and derail the work of special prosecutor Kenneth Starr.”
I could go on and on quoting Dick Morris, but it is better if you
read the book for yourself. Dick Morris has a website and if you have any questions or want more insight, visit:
