("Quid coniuratio est?")
This is Hillary Clinton's week which sees, by a strange "coincidence", that her book comes out and she is "in the news" concurrently. This is like with General Colin Powell, who also by a strange "coincidence" was a media omnipresence just when he also had a book released. Whatever else happens, my prediction is that Hillary's book will be a bestseller; that the suckers will rush out to buy it, just like they did with Powell.
Do you think what I say is far-fetched? Consider that, with media mergers going on, the people who are publishing Hillary's book could well be the same ones who give us the news! How about this for a promotional strategy: (1) release some basically inconsequential memos, papers, etc.; (2) then play up these releases big time in the "news", as if Hillary is really in hot water; use inside P.R. connections, publicity agent connections, and intentional "leaks" to manipulate and trick the press into thinking "Hoo boy! A big story!" (As noted, any portions of the media already owned by the publisher can just be told to "play up this story about 'Hillary in trouble.'"); (3) then just sit back and watch the saps all rally round Lady Hillary by rushing out to buy her book.
Will Hillary be subpoenaed? Maybe. But that too will help her book. Will Hillary be brought to justice for alleged wrongdoing? No way. Just like "only the little people pay taxes", so too Presidents and their wives just smile and act royal for the cameras.
Newsweek magazine, perhaps linked to the publisher of the First Lady's book, has a big cover story this week (Jan. 15, 1996 issue) headlined "Saint or Sinner?" In an interview therein, Hillary comments on Dead Foster: "It's difficult to keep track of all the spider webs that are spun and the theories and the innuendoes." What Mrs. Clinton is not realizing is that the death of Vince Foster has given life to a whole new genre of literature, "Tales of Dead Foster." She should chin up and see that Foster's death has been good for literature and for the economy.
Commenting on the late Foster, Newsweek tells its readers that Foster's "suicide note suggests he was agonizing over Travelgate on the day of his death." But hey Newsweek, ain't ya heard? Handwriting analysis by renowned experts proves that Foster did not write the note!! Or are you like White House Press Secretary McCurry who, when this anomaly was brought to his attention, huffed that he doesn't deal with "conspiracy theories" and immediately walked out?
The book by Mrs. Clinton derives its title from "an old African proverb" -- "It takes a village to raise a child." Based on excerpts published in Newsweek, It Takes a Village appears to be Hillary beating the drum for socialism. It seems to me that she really believes what she is peddling here, and does not realize how national socialism is just a trojan horse hiding tyranny. Yes, Hillary, just like in the Beach Boys song, "Wouldn't it be nice" -- Wouldn't it be nice if socialism worked? The flaw in what the First Lady is promoting is her implicit, underlying assumption that socialism works.
Hey Hillary, do you really want to do something good, like they say you do? Well then there is this fellow named Billy R. Dale who really went through a hard time these past couple years. Maybe you could show us you are more than hot air by seeing what you could do there.
I encourage distribution of "Conspiracy Nation."
