"The king's heart is in the hand of the Lord, as the riversof water: he turneth it whithersoever he will. ... The gettingof treasures by a lying tongue is a vanity tossed to and froof them that seek death. The robbery of the wicked shalldestroy them; because they refuse to do judgment." Proverbs21:1, 6-7

As Democrats flee the stench oozing from the rotting carcass of theClinton administration, we should weigh their new-found fervencyfor public righteousness against their actions.
Do the elder statesmen of the Democratic party -- Senators PatrickMoynihan, Bob Kerrey, Pat Leahy, Joe Lieberman and friends --actually expect us to believe that they have only now learned ofthe shameful, depraved behavior of their commander-in-chief?
Since early 1994, a small army of struggling newsletters, radiotalk show hosts, and more recently Internet journalists havereported the trail of destruction in the path of the Arkansasmafia, as Bill and Hillary Clinton moved their machine from thegovernor's mansion to the White House:
Whitewater, used to defraud Madison Guarantee Savings & Loan andthe taxpayers saddled with its downfall;
Castle Grande and other frauds and obstructions perpetrated byHillary while at the Rose Law Firm;
Cattle futures used as payoffs to Hillary;
Mena and ADFA (Arkansas Development and Finance Authority),tailor-made by Bill for his drug-smuggling friends;
Rose Law Firm lawyer Webster Hubbell and Hillary Clintonpartner, appointed to clandestinely run the U.S. JusticeDepartment and take the heat off the Clintons, while hiding frompublic view under the skirts of Janet Reno; removed and imprisonedfor defrauding his own law firm; handsomely rewarded for hissilence;
Louie Freeh, FBI Director appointed to cover up the death ofVincent Foster and to feed re-election intelligence in the form of1,400 FBI background files on Clinton enemies to the Democraticreelection effort;
Travelgate, the illegal firing of long-time civil servants anddestruction of their reputations and life savings, for the benefitof the Friends of Bill;
Treasonous sale of U.S. computer technology, encryptiontechnology, and military hardware to a communist government thatimprisons and executes Christian pastors for their religious faith,and uses democracy advocates as prison labor to generate theprofits to illegally fund Democratic reelection efforts;
Commerce Secretary Ron Brown's little Democratic NationalCommittee sideline: the sale of trade missions to "cooperative"donor firms, the dropped investigation at his death; and many,many more.

For their efforts, the reporters and editors who struggled toreport these facts about the reincarnated Camelot regime werevilified by taxpayer-supported, $450-per-hour attack dogs andwillfully ignorant mainline reporters. Some, like the WesternJournalism Center, were saddled with politically-motivated auditsby the Internal Revenue Service, designed to silence any who spokeout.
The "real" press, meanwhile, was too busy printing governmentpropaganda releases to be bothered investigating their beloved'ssexual or social proclivities. Armed with the Clintons' familymotto -- character doesn't matter -- you played his tune while youpimped for his administration. You didn't know? Washington leakslike a sieve; the only thing you didn't know was that he would becaught by Kenneth Starr -- a man you hate in proportion to hisreligious faith, honesty, and integrity.
Mr. Moynihan, Mr. Kerrey, Mr. Leahy, Mr. Lieberman, and the restof you Democrats who voted with, supported, and defended theClinton administration: all of you smelled early on the corruptstench of the lawless mob you helped to elect. Not only did younot hold your nose; you deeply and repeatedly inhaled, savoringthe smell of the power they brought with them: The Secret Service,the FBI, the IRS; your own little taste of Democratic immortality.
The principles that helped bring you to Washington were abandoned-- left to die in the ditch by the road to D.C. -- years beforeMr. Clinton ever moved into the White House. You have remainedsilent while good men and women were chewed up and spit out bythis corrupt beast devouring our government and our way of life.You voted to fund the evil that fed it. You defended it. You arepart and parcel of it. You are married body and soul to theClintons, their scandals, and their god-forsaken agenda of power-at-any-cost. Do not imagine that by roasting a well-publicizedcrow or two, you will escape the election fires now being preparedfor your party. I commend to you the seventh chapter of the bookof Esther for a picture of your fate. Bon Appetit.
