Congress, both the Democrats and Republicans, should be ashamed of
themselves. Congress, as an entity, is guilty of dereliction of duty,
malfeasance and felonious myopia. It has had as an accomplice in its
epic diffidence and obfuscation, the mainstream media.

History will eventually expose this administration for what it is: a
synthesis of Caligula, Machiavelli and Moe Howard. However, Bill Clinton
will not stand alone in the shadow of historical perspective as a lone
national embarrassment who succeeded in abusing power under the color of
authority. Complicit with the philanderer-in-chief will stand the
Democratic Party leadership for not leading, and permitting an
administration to ignore the laws of the nation, the Constitution and
Bill of Rights. The Republican Party’s lack of leadership and courage
will share the shame, plus an added measure for their failure to exploit
an alleged control of Congress. Both parties are to blame for allowing
the administration to denigrate the office of the presidency (as a tool
for abusive personal privilege), the nation (as a commodity to be sold
to the highest bidder), and our national essence (as prescribed in the
Constitution and Bill of Rights, and routinely ignored).

The once-upon-a-time “Fourth Estate” will also bear the burden and
scars of its petty, egomaniacal, self-serving, patronizing plethora of
puke. The country used to depend on, and look to, the media to be their
watchdog … to dig and ferret out the facts, complete with warts and
blemishes. Contemporary mainstream media has instead become not a
watchdog, but a lapdog, functioning more as a philosophical propaganda
machine intent on protecting the guilty, misrepresenting (or
rationalizing) the facts, and feathering their own nests (which they
routinely foul with their own waste).

I recently took a phone call on the air from a listener (a decorated
Vietnam Vet, successful business owner, and elected local official) who
asked a simple question: “High crimes or misdemeanors? Isn’t that the
criteria for impeachment?” Notwithstanding the absurdity of cretins like
James Carville, partisanship aside, what HAS been revealed as fact about
the president? There are long lists of allegations, some of which in the
fullness of time may be proved, some refuted. There are long lists of
‘curious’ oddities which ‘appear’ inappropriate or criminal. However,
from what do we now know, isn’t there substantial evidence to proceed
with the Impeachment process?

Secretary of State Warren Christopher rejected transfer of
satellite technology to Red China for reasons of “national security.”
That view was shared by the Department of Defense and assorted security
advisers. However, five months after that decision, this president
overturned his own Cabinet experts and approved the transfer of advanced
weapons technology to a Communist potential aggressor who just a few
years ago threatened to lob a nuclear weapon at Los Angeles.

It has been well documented that not only did the administration
receive large quantities of money from Red Chinese sources, but that
they had been warned by their own people of a host of problems with many
of the players.

Yet to be confirmed, but any day now, the administration
reportedly will hand over Long Beach Naval Station to COSCO (solely
owned subsidiary of the Red Chinese army). Despite a recent
congressional rebuke and pending Senate restrictions on future China

I have noted previously (but this deserves repeating and update)
that to date seven special prosecutors have been appointed;
eight Cabinet members have been investigated; 14 guilty pleas and
convictions have been obtained by Judge Starr including one
governor, one associate attorney general and two Clinton business
partners. Two indictments are pending; seven individuals, five
corporations and one law firm have been convicted as a result of
special prosecutor Donald Smaltz. Three indictments are pending,
including one against a former Agriculture secretary; seven
more indictments are pending in the investigation by Independent
Counsel David Barrett including an indictment of former HUD Secretary
Cisneros; six indictments or guilty pleas have been obtained
in inquiries growing out of the Ron Brown situations; Over $10.5
million has been assessed in fines and costs as a result of the
Smaltz investigation (which is running a profit); over 900 FBI files
have been misappropriated by the White House; some 160 visits were
made to the White House by Johnny Chung, James Riady, John Huang, and
Charlie Trie (all of whom are subjects of investigations); The 1996
Clinton campaign had BUDGETED $1 million to pay for possible/anticipated
campaign finance fines; 577 campaign contributors were given
overnights at the White House in the two years prior to the 1996
election; 40 problem areas were listed in a memo by Clinton’s own lawyer
in preparation for the President’s defense; Over 200,000 names are
estimated to be in the White House database without the knowledge of
those listed; 72 Whitewater witnesses who have been sought by
congressional committees have pled the 5th Amendment, fled the
country, or are foreigners who have to date refused to be
interviewed; 17 men who have served Clinton as bodyguards or aides
have died violently, four during the Waco disaster and the rest in
plane crashes; five others in the circle of Clinton have been killed in
plane crashes, six have died of unknown causes, three have been
murdered, two have died in fatal skiing accidents, one in a car accident
and one of a heart attack while in solitary confinement.

As a young Army officer I was taught that a leader is “responsible
for the welfare, discipline, and tactical deployment of his men.”
Perhaps it is naive of me to assume that those same responsibilities
should correspond to the president. However, in the wake of all we know,
and all that is developing, is it maybe possible that a House Judiciary
subcommittee might be able to find some “high crimes or misdemeanors”?
If not, they would be equally incapable of finding their overstuffed
political butts with both hands.
