Hillary Clinton: With no hyperbole, Moscow’s candidate for the US White House. Be assured, the restored Communist Party of the Soviet Union, which will be contesting Russia’s December 2007 State Duma election and March 2008 presidential election, will also be closely scrutinizing America’s next (and last?) election year.
Some highlights from Mrs. (“I’m in to Win”) Clinton’s resume:
1) Board of Editors, “progressive” Yale Review of Law and Social Action
2) Clerk at Treuhaft, Walker and Burnstein law firm; worked closely with Robert Treuhaft, member of Communist Party USA and Harvard-trained lawyer for the party, in defense of Black Panthers; summer 1971
3) Linked to fellow Yale Law School graduate Robert Borosage, who would later become director of the Institute for Policy Studies–a Marxist think tank and KGB front–and then director of Campaign for America’s Future, which seeks to push the US Democratic Party further to the left
4) Supported World Federalist Association, which advocates world (communist) government
5) Chaired New World Foundation, which awarded grants to the Committee in Solidarity with the People of El Salvador, which was connected to the communist Farabundo Martí National Liberation Front, currently El Salvador’s chief opposition party; the National Lawyers Guild, a front for the Communist Party USA; and the pro-Sandinista, pro-liberation theology, Jesuit-linked Christic Institute; 1982-1988
And this is skimming the surface . . .
Some highlights from Mr. (“First Gentleman” wannabe) Clinton’s resume:
1) Conducted mysterious trip to Moscow’s War Moratorium Committee, in company of scion of Czech communist family, January 1970
2) Maintained friendship with same Czech communist family from early 1970s to the period of his own presidency
3) Supported, as state governor, drug/arms smuggling operation in Mena, Arkansas, a key component in the Reagan Administration’s covert strategy to supply the Nicaraguan Contras; Cuban-born Felix Rodriguez, who captured communist terrorist Che Guevara in Bolivia in 1967, was the chief CIA agent involved in the Mena operation; according to Terry Reed, who cites Israeli intelligence, Rodriguez was a double agent for Moscow; 1980s
3) Suppressed information concerning Iraqi connection to Oklahoma City Bombing, 1995
4) Ignored communist Chinese theft of US nuclear secrets, 1995-1999
5) Overlooked attempt by People’s Liberation Army to finance the US Democratic Party with illicit donations and his own re-election bid, 1996
6) Endeavored to disassociate himself from the “Clinton Body Count” extending from Little Rock, Arkansas to Fort Macy Park, Virginia (where Deputy White House Counsel Vince Foster “committed suicide”), and beyond

Hillary Clinton launches White House bid: ‘I’m in’
January 22, 2007
WASHINGTON (CNN) — Sen. Hillary Clinton jumped into the fray as a 2008 presidential candidate with the words “I’m in” posted on her Web site.
“And I’m in to win,” she added in a statement, announcing she has set up an exploratory committee that can gauge opinions and raise money for a presidential campaign.
Clinton’s announcement comes on the same day that the next president will be inaugurated two years down the road: January 20, 2009.
The former first lady and Democratic senator from New York is considered her party’s front-runner in what has become a diverse Democratic field.
Should she win, she would be the first woman to serve as president of the United States — and the first presidential spouse to do so as well. President Bill Clinton served two terms from 1993 to 2001.
On Tuesday, Democrat Sen. Barack Obama announced that he was filing papers to form a presidential exploratory committee, a bid to become the first African-American president.
And on Sunday, New Mexico Gov. Bill Richardson, also a Democrat, is expected to announce his bid, one that could make him the first Latino president.
Live ‘Web chats’ start Monday
Bringing “the right end” to the war in Iraq, reducing the deficit, making the country energy independent and health care affordable were issues Clinton touted in her announcement, speaking on a video posted on her site.
“After six years of George Bush, it is time to renew the promise of America,” she said.
“I grew up in a middle-class family in the middle of America, and we believed in that promise,” the 59-year-old Chicago native said.
“I still do. I’ve spent my entire life trying to make good on it, whether it was fighting for women’s basic rights or children’s basic health care, protecting our social security or protecting our soldiers.”
On Sunday she’ll appear at the Ryan Chelsea-Clinton Community Health Center to discuss legislation that would expand the State Children’s Health Insurance Program. The center bears the names of the two Manhattan neighborhoods it serves — Chelsea and Clinton — coincidentally, Chelsea Clinton is the senator’s daughter’s name.
In the video, she invited Americans to join her in a three-night series of live video Web chats beginning Monday.
“So let’s talk. Let’s chat, let’s start a dialogue about your ideas and mine, because the conversation in Washington has been just a little one-sided lately, don’t you think?”
She’ll travel next weekend to Iowa and later to New Hampshire, two kickoff states for the Democratic presidential nominating process in 2008, according to her campaign organizers.
When Clinton launched her Senate bid in New York in 1999, she began a “listening tour” around the state to explore views on education, business and health care issues.
Her Republican opponent, Rick Lazio, called her a “carpetbagger” because she had not previously lived in New York. But she beat him, becoming the first sitting first lady to win an elected office, and was re-elected last year with 67 percent of the vote.
A crowded field
Clinton’s announcement puts her in a big Democratic crowd of candidates.
In a statement released Saturday, Obama said: “Senator Clinton is a good friend and a colleague whom I greatly respect. I welcome her and all the candidates, not as competitors, but as allies in the work of getting our country back on track.”
In addition to Obama and Richardson, the field also includes former Sen. John Edwards of North Carolina, the party’s 2004 vice presidential nominee, who declared his candidacy late last year; Rep. Dennis Kucinich of Ohio, a liberal critic of the war in Iraq; and Iowa Gov. Tom Vilsack.
Sens. Joe Biden of Delaware and Chris Dodd of Connecticut have also said they will seek the nomination, and other Democrats mentioned as possible candidates include the party’s 2004 presidential candidate, Sen. John Kerry of Massachusetts; retired Army Gen. Wesley Clark, and the Rev. Al Sharpton.
Clinton wants troop cap, is wary of al-Maliki
Clinton, who just returned from a trip to U.S. military facilities in Afghanistan, Iraq and Germany, has urged the Bush administration to return its focus to Afghanistan.
She has proposed a bill to cap troop levels in Iraq and require congressional approval before the president may send more troops.
She has also been highly critical of Iraqi Prime Minister Nuri al-Maliki, saying Washington should cut off financial support to the Iraqi government unless it shows commitment to stemming the sectarian violence there.
“I don’t have any faith,” she said of al-Maliki, when asked by CNN if she had any faith in him.
In 2002, Clinton was among the majority in Congress who voted in favor of authorizing Bush to attack Iraq if Saddam Hussein refused to give up weapons of mass destruction as required by U.N. resolutions.
In a 2005 letter to constituents posted on her Senate Web site, she said that she took responsibility for her vote, which she said she made “on the basis of the evidence presented by the administration.”
In turn, she said, “I, along with a majority of Americans, expect the president and his administration to take responsibility for the false assurances, faulty evidence and mismanagement of the war.”

If you have any doubts whether the Democratic Party, with which the Clintons are associated, is manipulated by communists and KGB assets, visit the new sections in this blogsite’s right column: “Communist-Infiltrated Political Parties.” The following organizations and front groups have pushed the Democratic Party firmly into the communist orbit:
- Campaign for America’s Future, as noted above, is a nonprofit organization committed to pushing the Democratic Party leftward; Director Robert Borosage was also director of the Institute for Policy Studies, a Marxist KGB front, between 1979 and 1988
- Congressional Progressive Caucus is dominated by Democratic members of the US Congress and connected to the Democratic Socialists of America
- National Stonewall Democrats is an “LGBT” faction of the Democratic Party; sodomites seek radical social transformation and, hence, are natural allies of communists; for example, Harry Hay and his partners in crime in the defunct sodomite Mattachine Society were “ex”-members of the Communist Party USA
- Progressive Democrats of America is an internal faction committed to pushing the Democratic Party leftward
- Shadow Democratic Party is a vast network of leftist organizations connected to multi-billionaire socialist George Soros and leftist-feminist Hillary Clinton; prior to his re-election, the Shadow Democratic Party was committed to removing President George W. Bush from office
- Democratic Socialists of America (DSA) is a political party with close links to the Congressional Progressive Caucus
- Communist Party USA endorsed the platform of the Democratic Party in the 2006 general elections and encouraged communists to vote Democrat; communists, as a rule, only support other parties if those parties are furthering communist objectives; although the Communist International has for over 60 years been defunct under that name, the CPUSA still coordinates its actions with foreign communist parties and states; the CPUSA attended the last International Meeting of Communist and Workers’ Parties in Lisbon, between November 10 and 12, 2006; the Communist Party of the Russian Federation–which constitutes the Russian section of the restored Communist Party of the Soviet Union–and the Communist Party of China sent delegates to that conference
