During the so-called "Clinton years," when I took the testimony of nearly everyone in the White House, it became well-known that Hillary Rodham Clinton was in effect the operational chief of the administration and its "hit man" – the evil point person for destroying adversaries – and head of the "War Room," which also comprised James Carville and George Stephanopoulos. Hubbie Bill was the "creative genius," not only with regard to foreign policy, but literally with regard to "domestic affairs." Just ask Monica Lewinsky and the cigar industry. But there is one statement I will always remember: "Hillary rules the school," testified to by Linda Tripp, the former assistant to mysteriously deceased Hillary law-firm partner and Clinton Deputy White House Counsel Vince Foster – giving a new meaning to the French expression "femme fatale." As also suggested during the testimony, Vince was the "love slave" who "watered Hillary's office plants" and may have died for being honest and not wanting to go along any longer in helping her execute evil deeds. Over 80 material witnesses and others "died" during the Clinton years, and poor Vince was only one of them.
Hillary was the man! The former first lady was not only in control of destroying the women who came forward to finger Bill for his extra-marital dalliances, gropings and sexual assaults, masterminded the illegal obtaining and use of FBI files against perceived adversaries, but also conceived of and then executed a massive scheme to illegally sell seats on trade missions at the U.S. Department of Commerce for a hundred grand a pop and also place a Chinese spy there, John Huang. Huang, along with the Riady family of Lippo Bank and others, laundered huge amounts of communist Chinese cash into the Democratic National Committee and the Clinton-Gore re-election campaign. He also passed along national-security secrets to the Chinese government.
I could go on for chapters outlining Hillary's felonious capers, and indeed, in my book "Whores: Why and How I Came to Fight the Establishment" I do just that. But what is important to remember for now is that Hillary is not that "innocent" statesman-like person the media now generally depict her as. Over the last 10 years, since the end of the Clinton administration, even Republicans have come to laud her so-called skills – probably still fearful that any attack would again result in the release of confidential FBI information about their personal and political lives. "C'est la vie comme d'habitude" – it's life as usual in the incestuous world of Washington, D.C., where the establishment takes care of its own without regard to ideology, commitment to the rule of law, the needs of the nation and the grievances of its people.

With this resumé, it's no wonder Barack Hussein Obama was fearful to have Clinton nominated as his vice presidential candidate in 2008. Hillary would only have been a stone's throw away from the Oval Office, and the "mullah in chief" obviously did not want to encourage his own "unfortunate accident." Instead, knowing that Hillary would always covet the presidency, Obama sought, European style, to co-opt her – that is, draw her into his inner circle to contain her by naming her secretary of state. There she could take the blame for his planned foreign policy of anti-Americanism, appeasement, weakness, prevarication and hostility toward Israel and nearly all things Jewish and Christian. This would serve the dual purpose of harming her political base should she ever decide to run for president against him in 2012.
So it should come as no surprise that this week, Hillary told Wolf Blitzer of CNN four times that she will step down as secretary of state and not serve in any new Obama administration, should he win re-election in 2012. Why would she make herself a lame duck by announcing this during ongoing world crises?
The answer is simple: Hillary knows full well that Obama is increasingly detested by the liberal Jews, Christians and whites who comprise much of her political base and the Democratic Party, and she wants to begin mobilizing them now for 2012. The "mullah in chief" has – as I have written in previous columns – not represented "We the People," but "his people" – comprised of the likes of Rev. Jeremiah Wright, Rev. Louis Farrakhan and Bill Ayers, the domestic terrorist. To add insult to injury, Obama is incompetent, rabidly pro-Muslim and detached – so much so that during the on-going crises in Japan and the Middle East this week, he was more concerned with making Final Four basketball picks on ESPN than furthering freedom in Libya or Iran, to name just a few of the opposition movements he has dissed and hung out to dry for slaughter by tyrants and neo-Nazis like the mullahs in Tehran. The one Arab leader he made an effort to have removed was President Hosni Mubarak of Egypt, a staunch ally of Israel and the United States. And, in pushing him out the door, Obama invited the Muslim Brotherhood – the grand daddy of all terrorist groups, bent on the destruction of Israel – to join the Egyptian government.

In 2011, it may be passé for Hillary to get rid of people by having them disappear. But with Obama there is an easier way that I suspect may, in this age of "civility," be the femme fatale's new modus operandi. I have come to conclude, through sources close to Hillary, that she herself may again be working on the so-called "birther" issue, which she first raised during her 2008 presidential campaign. For if Hillary can finally obtain proof positive that President Obama was born in Kenya, and not in Hawaii as he claims, then she will not have to send him on a day trip to Fort Marcy Park to retire him as president. What could be cleaner?
So it's Hillary for president in 2012! Her liberal base and the overwhelming majority of Democrats will rejoice! And what will the compliant media and her Republican "adversaries" say then – having built her up all these intervening years as an icon of wisdom, ability and experience? We may be headed for a disaster with Obama, but wait for the return of the evil Hillary. Ironically, in the words of President Ronald Reagan, "You ain't seen nothing yet!"
