I Was Left With More Questions After Reading This Book Oct 17, 2007
If you are looking for a resource that covers the variety of Bill Clinton's character flaws, this is not it. This book concentrates almost exclusively on the Clinton/Gore China connection. So if you're looking for a few juicy Gennifer Flowers, Paula Jones, or Monica-gate tidbits, you will be sadly disappointed.
While I suspected that a lot of what this book reveals is true, I felt that it fell somewhat short of making a convincing argument. Don't get me wrong, the authors present a lot of evidence to support their claim. But I remain puzzled that if such evidence is as authentic as the authors claim, then why have Bill Clinton and Al Gore not been indicted for their crimes?
Another problem about this book is that it was written in the late nineties before the end of Clinton's presidency. There are a few chapters added to this edition that takes us up to just before the 2000 elections. At that time, such questions would've been pertinent and the obvious motives for writing such a book would be evident. But now 7 years later, with nothing transpiring regarding these claims, I am left questioning how convincing the charges actually were.
The authors explain some of this in the text such as how Janet Reno was compromised by extending her term as Attorney General providing she thwarted an independent investigation of the Clinton/Gore - China scandal. And the descriptions of how Bill and Al controlled the FBI and other investigative branches to maintain their power grip on the country are very believable. But how could the Republicans, with all that was at stake in the 2000 elections, allow this to go virtually unnoticed? Were they complicit in it themselves? Did they have other 'baggage' with which Clinton was able to manipulate them? Or were they just plain inept?
In any event, the book does document a lot of incriminating evidence about China-Gate. Their research is extensive and covers many aspects of how China was able to compromise U.S. security using Bill Clinton and Al Gore as their 'connection'. It definitely makes you think twice about putting another Clinton in the White House (Hillary is depicted as complicit in this matter as well). I just feel that I was left with more questions unanswered after reading this book than before.
Clinton's Corrupt Presidency Dec 1, 2005
I found this book very disturbing. It shows how corrupt the Clinton/Gore adminstration really was. It also shows how the "liberal press" kept these facts from the American people, and how he put his own agenda above the security of our nation, that he was sworn to protect. I would like to see those responsible brought to justice and tried as traitors. This is well written and backed up with facts when available. Anyone who thinks he was such a great president needs to read and learn the truth.
Homeless Dude Apr 21, 2005
As a kid, I often took bikerides that took me past the Watergate Hotel. Every day, outside the hotel, there was this homeless-looking dude who distributed pamphlets with the same name as this book.
a rat book Feb 8, 2005
lots of sensationalism, unfunded accusations, paranoid and bias. no wonder it's only worth a few cents.
Are there no patriots in the Secret Service, the CIA, or FBI Jan 12, 2005
I read the hard cover as a gift when it first came out. Now I've read it a second time. That's when the dry read starts jumping off the pages at you. It is well documented (must be true) and raises the following questions: 1.Why were the authors not dealt with by the Arkansas cops? 2.Is it the donuts and fringe benefits that prevent G-Men from taking extreme measures when confronted with imminent threat to U. S. survival? 3. How come the McArthur Foundation didn't track down the patriots at McDonnell-Douglas and give them major financial awards for their selflessness? 4. Are we just living in a great big global paradise for political elites where Chinese communist elite kids, children of Arab Sheaks and future fat cats of America go to prep schools in New England; and limited wars like the current one, along with North Korean goose steppers serve merely as props to keep the American masses off balance and paying taxes? Read this book twice and see if you don't come up with similar questions
