"The Mad Hatter of Pennsylvania Avenue"
The Kosovo war, we are constantly reminded, is a campaign to stop the actions of a madman.
This may well be true, but it may be time to face the unpleasant fact that the madman is not in Yugoslavia, but back here at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue.
Yep. The real madman in this headlong march towards global war may just be William Jefferson Clinton.
Reports out of the White House and Pentagon say Clinton has become so obsessed with his "legacy" that he is willing to kill American soldiers to try and redefine his place in the history books.
Clinton doesn't want to be remembered as the President who got blow jobs from interns while conducting the nation's business. Nah, he wants to go down in history (pun fully intended) as the madman who sent young men and women to die in a desperate attempt to reshape his presidency.
Madness? You bet it is. Insanity? How much more proof do we need?
Clinton's mental stability (or the lack of it) has been the subject of whispers around Washington for some time now.
Would a sane man have risked his presidency for quickies in the Oval Office? Good question.
Would a sane man rape an Arkansas businesswoman in a Little Rock hotel room 21 years ago, leaving her bruised and bleeding on the bed, then put on his sunglasses and calmly tell her that she'd "better put some ice on that?" Better question.
"There are sufficient outward signs that the President's mental stability could be subject to question," says psychologist Dr. Stephanie Crossfield, who has been watching Clinton (at our request) for some time now.
This is the good doctor's professional way of saying the President may be loony tunes. Nuts. Wacko.
Problem is, this nutcase has the power to send our troops into war. This fruitcake can deploy nuclear weapons. This madman can destroy life as we know it on this planet.
And there ain't a lot we can do about it. Clinton has survived enough political scandals to sink a dozen other politicians. Each time he survives, his arrogance grows, along with the inability of anyone to do anything about his illegal, immoral and treasonous actions.
An American public that doesn't want to dump a President over sex also doesn't want to think they were duped into twice electing a madman to office. If they wouldn't buy his crimes (despite overwhelming evidence), how are they going to accept insanity (which is harder to prove)?
Impeachment? Been there, failed that. Under the Constitution, a majority of the cabinet could declare the President incapacitated and relieve him of his duties, but Clinton's cabinet doesn't have the balls to do that. The military, clearly frustrated with serving under a draft dodger, could take over the government, but this country fears military rule even more than it does a madman.
Which leaves the uneasy prospect of trying to survive 21 more months with the Mad Hatter in charge. That prospect scares us a hell of lot more than any Serbian strongman in Yugoslavia.

I would agree ... but don't really want to be your cellmate when they take you to the concentration camp.
If a person would write down what our forefathers said were the grievences against "King George" and compare that to what our Commander-in -Brieifs has done .... it would be good for a few laughs and many tears. The worst part, as you indicated, is that our fellow country men have allowed this by voting for "the economy, stupid".
Thanks for all your recent posts, Andy.

Exactly, Andy. You've expressed my feelings on "Dedicant Kilintoon" exactly. We MUST get him out of office ASAP!! I fear he is pushing us to the brink of NUCLEAR WAR!! He is willing to destroy America; indeed the WORLD, for hiss own warped goals! We're in a lot of trouble, so why can't more people (sheeple?) see it?!? Are we going to be nuked by Russia because of this? I hope not, but... I think so, if we send in ground troops, the answer is yes. :(

Sure he's nuts. But so is Boris. Most guys who get to the top have serious but well-managed psychological problems, and there are more than a few rapists in corporate boardrooms.
But if you think NATO is going to war to "wag the dog," YOU'RE nuts. We're dropping bombs on those people because of NATOs new allies to the North, and because we want to control the oilfields in the Bosporus. It's incredibly strategic ground. If it's timed to distract us from "Chinagate," then that's will keep "our man, Bill" looking pretty in the bargain - and the hundred or so others involved. Do you think he's the only traitor involved in the decision to transfer technology to the chinese? It's about Money, and money is controlled by people who are beyond money - and Bill is a mere puppet, flavor of the month ("democrat"). The world is in a malleable state due to the collapse of the USSR and the rise of the EU; hidden hands are shaping it - just now we see only a most dramatic and obvious stage of the process. I couldn't agree more with you about the character of our President, or lack thereof. But all this focus on a scapegoat prevents us from looking at the larger, systemic nature of the forces eroding our republic, our international reputation, and our freedoms. Don't go off half-cocked. Figure out how the game is played.
This is one reason why I think it's too late anymore, and totalitarianism is a foregone conclusion: they've got us pointing fingers here and there, but we can't see the forest for the trees.

I agree with you Dano, that we should see the hidden agenda of the NWO, and not be fooled. Slick's just a puppet in a larger game, but he's a big puppet. We should see what's going on, and recognise it for the evil that it truly is. The whole Kosovo war is slick trying to get out of trouble, combinded with the NWO's plans. they just conincided again... :(

The posters on this site (excluding the trolls and idiots) have more intelligence, courage and common sense than any of the news readers on the major TV networks. The opinion makers on TV are an embarrassment to our free press. The founding fathers stressed the importance of a free press. I fear that we lost that many years ago when control of ALL of the major media outlets was concentrated into very few hands in the media elite who are owned by major defense related corporations, Westinghouse, GE, etc. There is one way to go. Down unless the American people wake up which is not likely. Snooze Snooze Snooze. I make it a point not to buy the products of the sponsors of these propaganda mills.
