Arkansas State trooper: Bill and Hillary Clinton are swingers

L.D. Brown was an Arkansas state trooper who served as a bodyguard to Bill Clinton in the mid-1980s when Clinton was governor and, therefore, saw and knew a lot of the shenanigans (and worse) that went on.

On Nov. 10, 1997, Brown gave a deposition at the DoubleTree Hotel in Little Rock. The text of the deposition, published in full by The Washington Post on March 13, 1998, was released by Paula Jones’s lawyers, as part of their response to the Clinton legal team’s motion for summary judgement.

Note: A deposition is a witness’s sworn out-of-court testimony, used to gather information as part of the discovery process and, in limited circumstances, may be used at trial. The witness being deposed is called the “deponent.”

Paula Jones is a former Arkansas state employee who sued then-President Bill Clinton for sexual harassment. Clinton entered into an out-of-court settlement, agreeing to pay Jones and her attorneys a total of $850,000, before the lawsuit was dismissed pre-trial on the grounds that Jones failed to demonstrate damages. The Paula Jones case precipitated Clinton’s impeachment. Charges of perjury and obstruction of justice were brought against Clinton based on statements he made during the depositions for the Jones lawsuit about the nature of his relationship with White House intern Monica Lewinsky, with whom he denied having a sexual relationship.

In his deposition, former state trooper Brown described how he had solicited women for Bill Clinton:

I would talk to them personally, sometimes give them my business card. If they were from out of town, I would find out where they were staying. If we were out of town and/or in town anywhere in Arkansas, I would try to get their telephone number and introduce them subsequently to the Governor…. I would usually say something like that I was his bodyguard or I was his state police officer.

Brown described a particular occasion when he accompanied Gov. Clinton to a Southern Regional Education board meeting in Boca Raton, Florida:

when it was time to go and pay the bill, the governor got in the car with the girl that I had given the card to, and we followed them to an area that was under development. It was kind of a remote area from this club… and they stayed back there in the car for a few minutes. I can’t remember how long…and then the governor came back and jumped in the backseat and we left and went back to the hotel…. Well, he [Clinton] indicated in so many words that she had performed oral sex on him.

Altogether, Brown said he’d solicited women for Clinton “maybe ten of fifteen times out of state” and “hundreds of times” in Arkansas.

When asked if he had any knowledge of whether Bill Clinton would meet women when he would go out jogging. Brown replied:

After he [Clinton] would leave jogging by himself [wearing jogging shorts], he would call me and have me come pick him up…. Sometimes he would call me…to let me know…he’d be at the Excelsior for a while, pick him up at such and such a time…. [Bill would] give me the room number where he was going to be…. Afterward when I would pick him up…He would be real concerned about where Hillary was and if she had called. “Do I look like I’ve been running?” things like that.

In 1999, Brown published his account as “a witness to almost all of the alleged offenses circling around Bill Clinton in Arkansas: misuse of state funds for sexual liasons, Whitewater, illegal campaign fundraising and bribery, as well as cocaine use and cocaine smuggling” in the book, Crossfire-Witness in the Clinton InvestigationMost of the book had been told under the penalty of perjury to investigators for Congress and the Office of Independent Counsel. Documentation for many events is included in an appendix.

Crossfire

The preceding is to establish that former Arkansas state trooper L.D. Brown is not a flake who spews nonsense.

Now that Hillary Clinton, from all indications, has her eyes set on running for president in 2016, The National Enquirer undertook a special investigation and succeeded in tracking down a testimony that L.D. Brown had made under oath during a government investigation into the mysterious 1993 suicide of the Clintons’ White House lawyer, Vince Foster. In his testimony, Brown said that Bill and Hillary Clinton are wild “swingers” – a bombshell disclosure 
that can ruin her chances of winning the White House in 2016.

Recall that it was the Enquirer — when other media refused to — that alone pursued and broke the scandalous story of then-Democratic vice-presidential candidate John Edwards’ adultery and “love child” with political groupie Rielle Hunter. (See “John Edwards, a cad to the end“)

Vince Foster, HIllary, Bill

L to r: Vince Foster, Hillary Clinton, Bill Clinton

Bob Hartlein reports for The National Enquirer, Nov. 14, 2014, that in his sworn testimony, Officer L.D. Brown said he had eyewitnessed the wife-swapping of Bill, Hillary, and their respective lovers.

Brown told independent counsel Kenneth Starr that he was guarding then-Arkansas Governor Clinton and his wife at a Little Rock restaurant while they dined in a private dining room with two other couples.

What happened was “a diagonal swap,” bolstered by booze. Officer Brown watched in astonishment as Hillary and Vince kissed and fondled each other, while Vince’s wife looked on. Bill sat just a few feet away, kissing and hugging the wife of the third couple, whom Brown described as a “beautiful, gleaming Kewpie doll with brains.”

When the couples left the restaurant, Brown said Hillary and Foster were “drunk, kissing passionately,” and Foster had “his hand on Hillary’s rear and is just squeezing it all to hell.”

Brown also said both Bill and Hillary had admitted to him that they had an “open marriage.” Bill referred to the wife-swapping, saying: “We need to be happy, satisfied. Some people are satisfied in different ways!”

In an exclusive interview with the Enquirer, former Clinton aide Larry Nichols confirmed Officer Brown’s testimony — that the Clintons have carried their secret “as swingers all these years.” Nichols added: “But it will blow up when she runs for President – and could keep her from her and Bill’s dream of getting back into the White House.”

This is the same Larry Nichols who disclosed that he had killed people for the Clintons. See “Bombshell: Long-time Clinton associate says he killed people for Bill & Hillary.”

TV reporter threatened with arrest for filming exterior of EMPTY upstate NY prison

Grant’s Cottage, on the slope of Mount McGregor in Wilton, Saratoga County, upstate New York, is a New York State Historic Site because President Ulysses S. Grant died there on July 23, 1885. The address of Grant’s Cottage is 1000 Mt McGregor Rd, Wilton, NY 12831.

Grant's Cottage

Nearby is the Mt. McGregor Correctional Facility, a medium security prison for male inmates. Note that the address of the prison is 1000 Mt. McGregor Rd, Box 2071, Wilton, New York 12831, which means Grant’s Cottage is right next to the Mt. McGregor prison.

Mt McGregor Correctional Facility

The prison was taken over by the New York State Department of Corrections in the 1970s. Due to the state’s shrinking inmate population, Mt. McGregor prison, along with several other upstate prisons, officially closed for good on July 26, 2014.

But according to Rick Carlin of the Times Union, Mt. McGregor’s inmates had already been moved to other prisons in April — which means the prison was EMPTY even before its official closing. Indeed, Carlin reports that “Many of the 322 people who had worked at the prison, including correctional officers, have been or are being transferred to other facilities.”

All of which makes it very curious that on July 24, 2014, a WNYT Channel 13 news crew was threatened with arrest because the reporter, Mark Mulholland, while doing a story on Grant’s Cottage, was filmed standing in front of beneath the prison.

Here is WNYT’s news video, followed by my transcript and screenshots of the video:

On July 23, 2014, Mulholland and the WNYT news team went to Grant’s Cottage because it was the 129th anniversary of Grant’s death. A day later, on July 24, the team was sent back “to get additional [camera] shots.”

Mulholland was standing beneath the empty Mt. McGregor prison when a car sped toward him.

Mt. McGregor prison

A uniformed man got out of the car, identified himself as a “corrections lieutenant,” and told Mulholland, “No filming.”

Mt McGregor prison1

When Mulholland explained that they were doing a story on Grant’s Cottage, the officer said, “Doesn’t matter. You’re on state property right now. Can’t film here. You’ve got to get permission through Albany to film.”

So Mulholland conceded and said, “OK, we can go shoot from Grant’s Cottage.” The lieutenant said, “No. You’re not up here for that. You’re up here for a different purpose.”

When Mulholland repeats that they’ll go back to the cottage to shoot there, the officer says, “No. You’re leaving now.”

Mulholland: “You’re telling us we can’t visit a historic site?”

“No. You’ll run it through Albany.”

Mulholland then asks for the officer’s name.

“Lt. Dorn.”

“What’s your first name?”

“Lt. Dorn.”

Mulholland and crew then got into the car to drive back to Grant’s Cottage, only to have the way blocked by another corrections officer’s car.

Mt McGregor prison2Mt McGregor prison3

Minutes later, the second car let some tourists through but continued to harass Mulholland by inching along in front of the news team’s car.

The news team then passed several men making a movie on the prison’s grounds.

On the way down from the mountain, Mulholland was detained by a NY state police officer who demanded their video, insisting that WNYT cannot leave with any film of the prison and that photos and video of the cottage with the prison in the background would be confiscated.

Mt McGregor prison4

Lt. Dorn even threatened to arrest Mulholland.

After an hour of phonecalls between the TV station and Albany, the WNYT news team was finally allowed to leave without surrendering their video.

Rick Carlin of the Times Union has a follow-up on the bizarre incident:

The confrontation prompted The Associated Press to send a letter of protest. “We believe that the Channel 13 crew is owed an apology,” read part of a letter from Ken Tingley of the Glens Falls Post Star, the current president of the New York State Associated Press AssociationWNYT News Director Eric Hoppel said Mulholland was reporting that the Grant Cottage site is scheduled to stay open after the prison closes. Another crew from a production company was on the prison grounds that day, shooting exterior scenes for a drama. State officials wouldn’t divulge details about the production.

ForbiddenKnowledge rightly asks “Why the secrecy” about a prison that’s empty. Is “Lt. Dorn” a private prison contractor? And is Mt. McGregor Correctional Facility being transformed into a FEMA camp?

So is this a case of power-mad prison officials, or is something more sinister going on in the supposedly empty prison?

You decide!

To thank Mark Mulholland for his courageous reporting, send him an email!

Have You Heard Of “Amazon Echo”? This Is Amazing. I Think….

OK, now either this is the coolest thing ever, or really creepy.    :)   I really don’t know how to describe it. It’s like having a personal assistant in the house kinda. Here is a short description from the  www.theguardian.com/  The best is to watch the little U-Tube video. After the first vid is a second video which is a Parody of the real one. It’s called  “Amazon Echo (Early Beta Version) Let me know if you think this is cool or creepy.  

 

BTW it costs $ 199, and I just went to site and you have to request an invitation to purchase one. http://www.amazon.com/oc/echo   ~Steve~

——————————————————————————————-

      Sunday 9 November 2014

Amazon’s Echo defies easy description. Actually, that’s not quite true: the easy way to describe it is “creepy as hell”. What’s trickier is explaining what it is.

"Can you hear me now"?

“Can you hear me now”?

The Echo (below) is a 20cm-tall black cylinder, that sits in your home and listens to everything you do. You will want it to do this, if Amazon’s marketing is to be believed, because it will be able to answer questions like, “who is Abraham Lincoln?” and perform simple tasks such as adding ice cream to your shopping or playing a Taylor Swift track. (You have to say the “wake word”, “Alexa”, before it will act on what it hears).

The device is like a hyped-up Siri or Google Now for your whole house. And it does have some impressive technology behind it, packing two speakers and seven microphones into its small case. But still, anyone who is comfortable with the idea of an always-on, Wifi-enabled obelisk listening to everything they say will probably be the first to die in the inevitable cyberwar of the 22nd century.

And that’s before we get to the fact that one of Amazon’s selling points for the device is that it’s “always getting smarter”. (Isn’t this how Terminator starts?)

But don’t think that just because you keep Echo out of your home that you’re safe. The same always-listening technology is already in a number of high-end mobile phones, from Apple’s iPhones to the latest Android phones from Google and Motorola (although it needs to be explicitly turned on before it will work). Even devices which you don’t purchase with the explicit aim of letting a major technology company track everything you say are still keeping an eye on you.

War on Women: This is a “plus-size” model

plus size model

ELLE Magazine: Myla Dalbesio explodes with laughter on the other end of the phone. “It’s crazy!” she exclaims. “I can’t even.” The 27-year-old model is talking about booking her latest gig, modeling Calvin Klein underwear in the brand’s latest “Perfectly Fit” campaign, which was shot by Lachlan Bailey. “It was such a surreal moment. I cried,” she admitted.

Booking an underwear campaign for such an iconic brand would be a coup for any model. But it’s especially notable for Dalbesio, who’s what the fashion industry would—still, surprisingly—call “plus size.” (At a size 10, she’s bigger than Lara Stone, Jourdan Dunn, and Ji Hye Park, the other models featured in the campaign.)

“It’s kind of confusing because I’m a bigger girl,” Dalbesio says. “I’m not the biggest girl on the market but I’m definitely bigger than all the girls [Calvin Klein] has ever worked with, so that is really intimidating.” She wasn’t sure, she said of the shoot, what was expected from her “in terms of her size or shape.” Refreshingly, what was expected of her was the same thing that was expected of Lara Stone: to take a beautiful picture. “No one even batted an eye,” she says. “It was very cool.”

So what does it mean for a brand like Calvin Klein—known for launching the careers of such svelte models as Brooke Shields and Kate Moss—to cast a model who deviates from the size 0 standard and not make a fuss about it?

plus size model2

To Dalbesio, who spent years abusing Adderall, crash dieting, and flirting with bulimia in an attempt to whittle herself to “straight size,” it represents progress. “It’s not like [Calvin Klein] released this campaign and were like ‘Whoa, look, there’s this plus size girl in our campaign.’ They released me in this campaign with everyone else; there’s no distinction. It’s not a separate section for plus size girls,” she says.

Read the rest here.

So much for the right-wing war on women – seems that the liberal elitists in the fashion industry have their own war against women.

Major newspaper calls Obama an emperor with no clothes

The New York Post is an American daily newspaper, primarily distributed in New York City and its surrounding area.

Founded on November 16, 1801 (under the name New York Evening Post) by none other than Alexander Hamilton, one of America’s Founding Fathers, the New York Post describes itself as the nation’s oldest continuously published daily newspaper.

Today, the Post is the 7th most widely circulated newspaper in the United States. Its editorial offices are located at 1211 Avenue of the Americas, in New York City, New York.

This was the front page of the New York Post on November 5, 2014, the day after the Nov. 4 midterm elections.

NYP front page

I think you’ll agree with me that a major U.S. newspaper — the 7th most widely-circulated daily paper in America — mocking a sitting President of the United States as an emperor with no clothes is most significant.

Red Is Such A Pretty Color. Look At The Nice Red Picture.

Good Morning my friends. Ran across this picture and kinda brought a tear to my eye. Hope you enjoy.  sniff sniff.

~Steve~ ————————————————————————-

HERE’S WHAT A REPUBLICAN TAKEOVER LOOKS LIKE

That sure is purdy.

That sure is purdy.

 That’s a lot of red for the House.

At the time of this writing, Republicans have picked up nine seats in the House, pushing them to a muscular 243-seat majority.

For House Speaker John Boehner, that means the bar is set highfor legislative accomplishments in the next two years. For the national political landscape, that means a lot of red. Here’s the lower chamber of the 114th Congress, in vivid color.

Rest Here!

Who’s the chickenshit? Benjamin Netanyahu or Barack Obama?

According to Jeffrey Goldberg of The Atlantic magazine, a senior Obama administration official recently described the Prime Minister of Israel Benjamin Netanyahu as “chickenshit.”

Explaining the meaning behind calling the leader of an ally a “chickenshit,” the official told Goldberg, “Netanyahu is … scared to launch wars…. He’s got no guts.” (See “Senior WH official calls Israel’s prime minister ‘chickensh*t“)

This is the same Benjamin Netanyahu who joined the Israel Defense Forces during the Six-Day War in 1967, and became a team leader in the Sayeret Matkal special forces unit. He took part in many missions, including Operation Inferno (1968), Operation Gift (1968) and Operation Isotope (1972), during which he was shot in the shoulder. He fought on the front lines in the War of Attrition and the Yom Kippur War in 1973, taking part in special forces raids along the Suez Canal, and then leading a commando assault deep into Syrian territory. He was wounded in combat twice.

In contrast, not only had Barack Obama never served in the military, there are good reasons to suspect the authenticity of his Selective Service or draft registration form.

The Urban Dictionary defines “chickenshit” as “coward, cowardly, wimp, wimpy, an unmanly being, a man without testicles, a pussy.”

The definition reminds me of these oh-so-manly images of the POS, beginning with one taken with Netanyahu, all of which the White House would rather you forget. Why do you think the White House has put restrictions on press photographers taking pics of Obama, many of whom must now depend on pre-approved photos taken by official White House photographers?

And let us not forget this is how manly Obama works out in the gym, specifically a hotel gym in Warsaw, Poland, on June 3, 2014. Pay special attention to the girly man doing the reverse fly with sissy squats at the 1:05 and 2:30 marks.

So I ask you, who really is the “chickenshit” — Benjamin Netanyahu, veteran of the Israeli Special Forces, or Barack Obama? Sound off in our poll!
