When young Bill Clinton in 1974 made his
first run for political office, a crucial $10,000 loan was arranged
for him by his uncle, Raymond Clinton. Uncle Raymond has been
tied by Clinton biographer Roger Morris to the Hot Springs Mafia.
But it was not until 1984, when Clinton was elected for a second
term as Governor of Arkansas, that Mob money really started pouring
in. "That was the election when the Mob really came into
Arkansas politics, the dog-track and racetrack boys, the payoff
people who saw a good thing," a former U.S. Attorney told
Roger Morris. "It wasn't just Bill Clinton and it went beyond
our old Dixie Mafia, which was penny-ante by comparison. This
was eastern and and West Coast crime money that noticed the possibilities
just like the legitimate corporations did."
Among the "legitimate corporations"
that noticed the possibilities with the rapidly ascending governor
thirsting for power and money were front corporations for the
intelligence services of the People's Republic of China. The Lippo
empire came to Arkansas that year. By then, Bill Clinton's ties
to organized crime had become well- known. His half-brother Roger
Clinton was convicted of cocaine distribution in association with
Mob figure and Clinton money man Dan Lasater.
In the years that followed, Arkansas became
a major cocaine trans-shipment point for the Mafia, crossing paths
with the famous CIA Contra resupply operation at Mena. Bill Clinton
had found a most successful formula in U.S. politics: financial
backing from a coalition of organized crime and hostile foreign
So successful was this formula, that in 1992
Bill Clinton used it to reach the highest office, the office of
the U.S. Presidency. In return for large campaign donations, the
crime families would be represented in the Clinton administration.
The New York Mob paid $56 million  and
won the slot of Deputy Chief of Staff for its lawyer Harold
Ickes. The Dixie Mafia paid an undisclosed amount and obtained
slots for Patsy Thomasson and Buddy Young. The Chicago political
machine sent Rahm Emanuel and David Wilhelm.
Harold Ickes proved his value to the Mob when he held his hand over Mob puppets Arthur Coia and Ron Carey who were under separate RICO investigations by the Justice Department.
Patsy Thomasson, in charge of White House
drug testing policy, saw to it that criminal figures on the White
House staff would not be bothered about past and current drug
The People's Republic of China, in return
for at least a $3 million loan through Worthen Bank, won a slot
for its spy John Huang at the Commerce Department. Later followed
access to advanced U.S. military technology, access to the Long
Beach Naval Base, MFN trade status, and more campaign contributions.
Peripheral Mob figures Nathan Landow, Richard
Ben-Veniste, and their associates Terry Lenzner and Paul Begala
became part of the secret police that would keep Clinton in office
despite multiple revelations of criminal offenses.
Ironically, the only member of the Clinton
enforcement team who has threatened the use of Mafia methods in
public is James Carville. He said on television that Kenneth Starr
was just one mistake away from not having any kneecaps. "Kneecapping" is a Mafia specialty.
Yet the only link between Carville and the Mafia that we have
been able to find so far is his partnership with Paul Begala,
who admitted in a recent deposition for the Filegate trial that
he was in close and frequent contact with his friend Richard
Ben-Veniste, a Mob lawyer and friend of Mobster Alvin Malnik .
Richard Ben- Veniste has defended several drug traffickers and
money launderers for the Mafia and for the DNC. Ben-Veniste also
defended Bill Clinton on the Senate Whitewater panel in 1995.
It goes without saying that a Racketeering-Influenced
Corrupt Organization such as the Clinton administration cannot
stay in office long without a very efficient "enforcement"
component to its secret police. The methods employed by this "enforcement"
team include murder. The 1993 assassination of Clinton private
investigator Jerry Parks was carried out by people in Hot Springs
associated with Buddy Young . Of all the mysterious deaths
and suicides surrounding the Clinton Secret Police, this is the
only one that has been solved.
That does not mean that it has been prosecuted,
though, for corruption of the judicial system is another necessary
component of survival. White House Director of Administration,
Patsy Thomasson of the Dixie Mafia, has been implicated in several
attempts on the life of Dennis Patrick, a former money launderer
for the Dixie Mafia who wanted out .
Survival of the Clinton administration has
also been contingent upon successful corruption of the press.
The most prominent Clinton operator at this time is Murray Waas,
gaining fame in the mainstream media for finding a psychic in
Arkansas whose son had seen money given to Whitewater witness
Murray Waas has actually been doing opposition
research for the Clinton administration for several years. His
journalistic "scoops" (or are they merely ventilations
of White House FBI files?) include research into the background
of Kenneth Starr and into the background of Clinton critics.
In this research, his Mafia-style methods
have become apparent. Waas threatened to have reporter Michael
Lewis killed after Lewis wrote a New Republic story looking into
murder and drugs in Arkansas--a story that was unflattering of
Waas . Who does Waas know who would be able to enforce such
If China made illegal donations to the Clinton
campaign in return for mercantile and military strategic advantages,
then what illegal donations have been made by Russia? The favors
Clinton has made towards China pale in comparison to the favors
he has made towards Russia. Billions of dollars in economic support
and the maintenance of a strategic advantage in favor of Russia
through the obstruction and delay of modernization of the U.S.
strategic nuclear arsenal and the development and deployment of
a U.S. national missile defense.
Lest gestures as these be interpreted as
prudent engagement of a fledgling democracy, one should consider
that it has rarely been the democratic forces in Russia, or the
Russian people, that have been the beneficiaries of Clinton administration
(1) Clinton's point man on Russia policy
is the former KGB's point man on propaganda in the U.S. His name
is Strobe Talbott, a former editor at Time magazine who built
his career on access to KGB officials and their Soviet propaganda
(2) The Clinton administration has worked
hand-in-hand with Russian Mobsters to illegally extradite whistleblowers
who have revealed massive KGB-Mafia corruption in Russia .
(3) The FBI, through its new offices in Moscow,
has become an adjunct of the corrupt KGB-Mafia bureaucracy that
rules Russian society today. FBI Director Freeh has reversed himself
in stating that the Russian Mafia does not pose a threat to U.S.
domestic or national security . Only a month earlier, Freeh
had warned that 30 Russian Mafia syndicates were conducting the
most sophisticated criminal operations ever seen in America based
on their access to expertise in computer technology, encryption
techniques and money laundering .
(4) Monetary aid to Russia has been diverted
towards the modernization of its strategic nuclear arsenal, including
a new generation of nuclear attack submarines. Other funds have
been diverted to the Russian Mob
(5). The engineer of these scams is Strobe
Talbott. Where are the records of illegal campaign donations invested
by the Russian KGB-Mafia complex in the Clinton
administration to maintain this profitable state of affairs? Apart
from the revelation of a $90,000 donation to the DNC on behalf
of suspected nuclear arms dealer Grigory Loutchansky , the
record of this cash pipeline must be hidden inside the DNC's closely
guarded campaign finance records. That is a scandal yet to surface.
The legacy of the Clinton Presidency is the
transformation of the United States into a narco republic with
parts of the judicial system as corrupt as that of Colombia. Much
worse than that, Bill Clinton has helped build a state-of-the-art
offensive nuclear strike capability in the most dangerous nations
on earth: China, Russia, Pakistan, and Iran. And the nuclear weapons
of China and perhaps Russia are targeted at the U.S.
Simultaneously with this build-up, Clinton
has dismantled, defunded, and starved the U.S. military so that
today we have a "hollow army." The actions of President
Clinton will dramatically affect the security of the United States
for generations to come. He has sold out his own country in order
to win and maintain the Presidency.
