Bubba deserves the MOF as much as Obama deserved the Nobel Peace Prize.
From the Washington Times.
Obama will award former President Bill Clinton the Medal of Freedom on Wednesday at the White House, a public display of admiration belied by the enduring tensions between the two men.
Obama will bestow the nation’s highest civilian honor on Clinton for the work during his presidency and, more recently, as head of the Clinton Global Initiative. Fifteen other honorees will attend the ceremony in the East Room, but all eyes will be on the president and his sometime nemesis, the former president.
Like the Nobel, the MOF has lost any credibility it once had. Once upon a time, you actually had to accomplish something honorable and worthy of the award. Most likely, Obama is giving Bubba the gift to shut him up; Slick Willie has been poking Obama in the eye with criticism over ObamaCare, and their friction over Hillary is well documented.
What has Bubba done with his life to deserve a MOF? A rundown of his record:
His total failure to fight terrorism:
Several terrorist attacks occurred on his watch—Khobar Towers, USS Cole, the U.S. Embassy attacks in Kenya and Tanzania, and the FIRST attack on the World Trade Center in 1993—all of them went unanswered. Instead, he wagged-the-dog in Somalia and the Balkans. The Sudanese arrested Bin Laden in 1996 and offered to extradite him. Bubba refused. Three times after Aug. 20, 1998, when Clinton ordered the only missile strike of his presidency against bin Laden’s organization, the CIA came close enough to pinpointing bin Laden that Clinton authorized final preparations to launch. In each case, (Clinton’s) doubts about the intelligence aborted the mission. Bin Laden got away.
This was absolute treason. He and algore’s (one word) Chinese/Indonesian friends bought the 1996 “election” in exchange for information on, among other items, classified satellite technology. Johnny Chung, a fund-raiser for the Democratic Party, illegally funneled thousands of dollars from Chinese military agents to the Clinton-Gore re-election campaign. John Huang and Charlie Trie were indicted on charges related to those crimes, but when the FBI tried to investigate, it was blocked by Clinton’s Attorney General, Janet Reno. FBI Investigators wanted to do a search on Charlie Trie’s home but again, were denied by Reno’s DOJ. This gave Trie all the time in the world to destroy documents that would have blown the case wide open. What few documents they retrieved, were serious enough for an indictment.
Janet Reno was flat-out guilty of obstruction of justice.
READ THE COX REPORT. It detailed the technology and information transferred to China that helped further their ICBM program.
Clinton illegally obtained as many as 900 FBI files on individuals who were former employees (“political enemies”) during the previous Republican Administrations, including President Reagan’s and your husband’s.
Bill and Hillary used an Arkansas travel agency, World Wide Travel, working with Clinton’s cousin Catherine Cornelius. The firm had provided a million dollars in deferred (fly now- pay later) travel for the Clinton campaign, freeing up much-needed cash for campaigning. Employees of the firm donated to the Clinton campaign. The apparent pay-back to the firm was supervised by Hillary. When the story broke, she fired all the employees and threatened them with FBI investigations if they talked.
He lied under oath when he testified during his testimony in the Paula Jones sexual-harassment case, and uttered the now-infamous “It depends upon what the meaning of the word ‘is’ is” when he testified about his affair with Monica Lewinsky.
A lurid history of sexual assault and harassment:
Former White House aide Kathleen Willey, former Arkansas nursing home administrator Juanita Broaddrick, and former Arkansas state employee Paula Jones were among his victims.
Speaking of lurid (UPDATE): Bubba has been identified in a lawsuit in connection with fundraiser Jeffery Epstein, who served time in 2008 for having sex with underage prostitutes and allegedly keeping some of them as sex slaves on his private island. Bubba made multiple trips to the location but suddenly ended the friendship after Epstein was arrested.
Bubba used the White House as a conduit for an illegal, immoral, unethical, and treasonous crime spree, which should have earned him an 8×10 cell in Leavenworth.
The motherfucker needs to fade into obscurity.
As for Oprah, there’s nothing like a wealthy privileged black female bitching about the history of racism and not even getting the story right. When it comes to racism, the Democrats have a corner on the market, a fact that escapes blowhards like Winfrey. Oh yeah, and the only reason anyone dislikes Obama is because of RACISM, that’s why, and old white people will have to die for it to end.
Nah, it couldn’t be that he’s a corrupt, petty little tyrant and a narcissistic sociopath.
Of the recipients in the group—there were 16 this time around-–Clinton, Winfrey, and Gloria Steinem, who morphed from a women’s rights activist to a total douche, would have been best left unrecognized.
