Item description for Hillary's Secret War: The Clinton Conspiracy to Muzzle Internet Journalists by Richard Poe...
Overview From her own "war roon" in the White House, Hillary Clinton commanded a secret police operation dedicated to keeping the dark truth about her husband's immoral and illegal dealings a secret. But thanks to a revolutionary group of courageous new journalists working through the Internet-on such sites as WorldNetDaily, DrudgeReport, NewsMax, and FreeRepublic-the shocking truth about history's most corrupt presidency was finally revealed. This is their story. In this eye-opening book, investigative journalist Richard Poe shows how Hillary Clinton worked behind the scenes to supress evidence of Clinton crimes and persecuted the Internet journalists who dared to expose them with blackmail, IRS audits, break-ins, and physical intimidation. It also tells how these modern day Tom Paines and Ben Franklins continue in this age of the Internet to challenge the power of Big Media, engaging an increasingly ruthless Left in a battle for America's soul.
The true story of how a group of renegade journalists fought to expose America's darkest scandals through the Internet―and how the most powerful woman in the world tried to stop them.
From her "war room" in the White House, Hillary Clinton commanded a secret police operation dedicated to silencing dissent, muzzling media critics, intimidating political foes, whitewashing Clinton scandals, and obstructing justice, all aided by a network of Clinton moles planted at every level of the news media, federal court system, intelligence agencies, and federal law enforcement.
Mainstream news media spiked the story of Hillary's secret war―and of the scandals she sought to conceal. But the courageous new journalists of the Internet underground defied the odds and exposed the shocking truth about history's most corrupt presidency.
Written with all the drama and tension of a gripping novel, this carefully researched book gives the inside story of how these modern-day patriots endured Hillary's attacks and emerged from the battlefield to become a sprawling, innovative news source reaching tens of millions each day. "Hillary's Secret War" presents a tale of dogged courage and sacrifice, one of the greatest untold stories in the annals of journalism.
"Hillary Clinton is one of the most important political players in the last decade, and she's been nothing but trouble. This book is required reading." ―Ann Coulter, best-selling author of "High Crimes and Misdemeanors, Slander, and Treason"
""Hillary's Secret War" chronicles the lonely battle many of us waged to expose Clinton corruption. As one who took part in that struggle, I am impressed by the accuracy of Richard Poe's account. He has brought to life a shameful chapter in American history that Big Media tried to bury." ―Christopher Ruddy, founder and editor of "NewsMax.com"

Another good-right-bad-left propaganda book Sep 14, 2007
What we have here is an apparently hard-hitting, gloves-off book that exposes the depths of the corruption of Bill and Hillary Clinton. It's real purpose, though, is to preach to the choir of those who already dislike the Clintons intensely, while cleverly covering up the deeper, broader corruption that envelopes both major political parties and all the nation's major opinion molders. The proof of the pudding is in the following long passage in the book describing how Kenneth Starr's "investigators" shrugged off the frightening harassment of an inconvenient witness in the Vince Foster death case:
No one knows who ordered the harassment team to begin its operation against Patrick Knowlton on October 26, 1995. However, someone close to the Starr investigation must have tipped them off that Knowlton had received a subpoena.
Throughout Knowlton's ordeal, Starr's team treated the beleaguered witness with extraordinary contempt.
When the street harassment began, Knowlton called the FBI and requested witness protection. Nothing happened for two days. Finally, Agent Russell Bransford--the same FBI agent who had delivered Starr's subpoena--showed up. "He had this smirk on his face, as if he thought the whole thing was amusing," says Knowlton. "I told him to get the hell out of my house."
At the same time Knowlton was calling the FBI, Ruddy and Evans-Pritchard called Deputy Independent Counsel John Bates to report the intimidation of a grand jury witness. Bates's secretary jotted down some notes. "An hour later I called again," says Evans-Pritchard. "She let out an audible laugh and said that her boss had received the message...Bates never called back.
What did Starr's people find so funny about the situation?
As a last resort, Knowlton prepared a "Report of Witness Tampering" and took it personally to the Office of the Independent Counsel. "It was their responsibility, at the very least, to find out who leaked word of his subpoena," notes Evans-Pritchard. According to Evans-Pritchard, John Bates responded by calling security and having Knowlton removed from the building.
Perhaps the most telling indication of Starr's attitude toward Knowlton is the humiliating cross-examination to which this brave man was subjected before the grand jury. Knowlton says that he was "treated like a suspect." Prosecutor Brett Kavanaugh appeared to be trying to imply that Knowlton was a homosexual who was cruising Fort Marcy Park for sex. Regarding the suspicious Hispanic-looking man he had seen guarding the park entrance, Kavanaugh asked, Did he "pass you a note?" Did he "touch your genitals?"
Knowlton flew into a rage at Kavanaugh's insinuations. Evans-Pritchard writes that several African American jurors burst into laughter at the spectacle, rocking "back and forth as if they were at a Baptist revival meeting. Kavanaugh was unable to reassert his authority. The grand jury was laughing at him. The proceedings were out of control."
It was at that point, reports [British reporter and author Ambrose] Evans-Pritchard, that Patrick Knowlton was finally compelled to confront the obvious: "the Office of the Independent Counsel was itself corrupt." (pp. 106-107)
Note carefully the names of those two Starr underlings involved in the harassment of the witness, Knowlton. They are John Bates and Brett Kavanaugh. On page 143 Poe says, not surprisingly, "Like most Americans I support George W. Bush and his War on Terror." But Poe conveniently neglects to tell his readers that this president, whom he praises as a "decent, God-fearing man," has made federal judges--with the approval of the United States Senate--of these two accomplices after the fact of a high-level murder. He even leaves their names out of his extensive index. You will never find this connection made anywhere in the mainstream media, either.
I rest my case.
An interesting history of an alternative media Sep 8, 2006
This book does give a concise and to the point overview of scandals and cover-ups that have ties with Hillary, with documentation for further research. However, as far as this book is specifically concerned, I would describe it as a very interesting history of the new Internet journalists, especially as regards their rocky relationship with Hillary Clinton when she was first lady. In addition to this, it also documents the failure, in many cases, of the mainstream "Big" media (sometimes purposely, according to the author) to report the facts as they are, so as not to offend certain power structures in the country.
I do not believe anyone in their right mind, (Hillary is in her wrong mind :-) reading this wonderful chronology of Internet journalism, could pin the term "vast, right wing conspiracy" on the expository news released by the more conservative Internet journalists. After all, politically speaking, it has been the left wing, and less the right wing (with some exceptions), in recent history, that has resorted to more surreptitious and psychologically deliberate forms of persuasion. Either way, I do agree with Anne Coulter's observation, as quoted in this book, that "Liberals fail in any media realm where there is competition. In the three media where success is determined on the free market--radio, books, and the Internet--conservatives rule....Only a monopoly could produce a Dan Rather." (p. 56)
Interesting study Apr 27, 2005
Richard Poe provides an interesting take on the emergence of the conservative internet as a response to the liberal slanted mainstream media (New York Times, Washington Times, LA Times, CNN and the big three networks). Poe discusses how some of the powers behind such sites as the Drudge Report, NewsMax and FreeRepublic (for example) were ostracized by the mainstream media and turned to the internet to voice their opinions. They were quickly joined by hundreds of thousands of like minded net surfers and what started as a very large discussion forum grew into political action. It was the conservative internet that exposed the falsified documents used as the basis of the CBS "60 Minutes" report on President Bush's National Guard service. Liberals tried unsuccessfully to answer back with their own web sites. When she found she couldn't control them Hillary unleashed her dogs; suddenly people were being audited, sued and some lost funding (when donors were threatened). Through it all they preserved and, in so doing, flourished.
While I have no doubt that liberals would like nothing more than to silence the conservative voice (which threatens their monopoly on news, opinions and, hence, threatens their agenda), I think Poe sometimes sees conspiracies where there may not be any (however, if I went through what some of these folks did I'm not sure I would see conspiracies everywhere also). I also think he goes a bit overboard with his praise of Matt Drudge (and his website).
But those reservations aside I recommend this book for two reasons. First, for anyone coming a bit late to the internet party this book is good at catching you up to what's gone into getting things where they are today. Second I found the discussions of the Vince Foster and Ron Brown cases fascinating. It lays bare the lengths the Clintons, their minions and accomplices within the media will go to obfuscate the truth in pursuit of their goals (power and a return to the White House). Will the internet be powerful enough to stop them? Poe seems to think so. I hope he's right.
An Insider's Guide to the New Underground Mar 14, 2005
Poe plays Virgil and Hillary is the Debbil on this fascinating tour of the nether regions of trans millennial political intrigue. It would be hard to find a better spirit guide than Poe. He speaks with a reliable precision when delving the personalities and policies that make up the current American debate. This came forth on an episode of the O'Reily Factor when the host categorized George Soros as a "Leftist." Poe responded that Soros is not a doctrinal leftist and, in fact, is not doctrinaire. He merely wants to rule the World.
Read Secret War and learn about Hillary's collusion with the major media to deflect and divert public attention from the scandals of the Clinton Administration. Get the details on Whitewater, Chinagate, and the Arkancide body count. Find out who really invented the Internet. Read about the New Underground- when it became self aware, who are the major players and what influence it will have on Hillary's aspirations- and what she is willing to do to stop them.
Hillary's Secret War had taken on even greater importance with the implosion of the mainline media that took place shortly after publication. The events of Rathergate read like the next chapter in "..Secret War", highlighting Poe's perspicacity and underlining the credibility and importance of this book.
Be informed....read this book.... Mar 4, 2005
This is one of the most frightening books I have ever read. Others have reviewed the content very well, so my only message is...If Hillary is on the ballot, please do not go to the polls until you have read this book and understand who she really is. Then make your decision.
