Kathleen Willey's explosive new book details how her life was changed - and nearly destroyed - by Bill and Hillary Clinton. Target contains never-before-released details of the intimidation campaign launched to silence Kathleen...one way or the other. It provides new insight not just into the death of Kathleen's husband - on the same day that Bill Clinton assaulted Kathleen in the Oval Office - but into Bill's sexual addiction and Hillary's compulsive enabling, a dangerous combination with power.
The Clintons' terror and harassment continue. Over 2007 Labor Day weekend, Kathleen's home was burglarized. Instead of taking jewelry or computers, the thief took the manuscript for Target, with its explosive revelations that could damage Sen. Hillary Clinton's presidential campaign.
It was a break-in all too reminiscent of an earlier incident in which Kathleen was threatened by a stranger just two days before she was to testify against President Clinton in the Paula Jones sexual harassment case. It's deju vu all over again - and a timely reminder of how cunning and ruthless the Clintons' desire for power remains.
We see the shaping of Hillary as a self-described "mind conservative and heart liberal" ---her ostensibly idyllic Midwestern girlhood (her mother a nurturer, but her father a disciplinarian, harsher than she has acknowledged); her early development of deep religious feelings; her curiosity fueled by dedicated teachers, by exposure to Martin Luther King Jr., by the ferment of the sixties, and, above all, by a desire to change the world. At Wellesley, we watch Hillary, a Republican turned Democrat, thriving in the new sky’s-the-limit freedom for women, already perceived as a spokeswoman for her generation, her commencement speech celebrated in Life magazine. And the book takes us to Yale Law School as Hillary meets and falls in love with Bill Clinton and cancels her dream to go her own way, to New York or Washington, tying her fortune, instead, to his in Arkansas.
Bernstein clarifies the often amazing dynamic of their marriage, shows us the extent to which Hillary has been instrumental in the triumphs and troubles of Bill Clinton’s governorship and presidency, and sheds light on her own political brilliance and her blind spots--especially her suspicion and mishandling of the press and her overt hostility to the opposition that clouded her entry into the capital. He untangles her relationship to Whitewater, Troopergate, and Travelgate. He leads us to understand the failure of her health care initiative.
In the emotional and political chaos of the Lewinsky affair we see Hillary, despite her immense hurt and anger, standing by her husband--evoking a rising wave of sympathy from a public previously cool to her. It helps carry her into the Senate, where she applies the political lessons she has learned. It is now her time. As she decides to run for president, her husband now her valued aide, she has one more chance to fulfill her ambition for herself--to change the world.
In his preparation for A Woman in Charge, Bernstein reexamined everything pertinent written about and by Hillary Clinton. He interviewed some two hundred of her colleagues, friends, and enemies and was allowed unique access to the candid record of the 1992 presidential campaign kept by Hillary’s best friend, Diane Blair.
He has given us a book that enables us, at last, to address the questions Americans are insistently--even obsessively--asking about Hillary Clinton: What is her character? What is her political philosophy? Who is she? What can we expect of her?
In Hell to Pay: The Unfolding Story of Hillary Rodham Clinton, former federal prosecutor and Washington insider Barbara Olson reveals the real Hillary Clinton—a woman whose lust for power surpasses even that of her husband.
As the Chief Investigative Counsel for the congressional committee that investigated "Travelgate" and unearthed "Filegate," Barbara Olson has peered through the Clinton defenses to see a Hillary Clinton who is angry, bitter, obsessive, and even dangerous to the health of American politics.
Hell to Pay investigates Hillary's radical roots, how she switched from being a "Goldwater Girl" to sixties radical—and how, since then, she has maintained her ties to the radical left. The agenda? In the sixties, it was the Black Panthers and overthrowing corporate America. Today, it is socialized medicine and using children as political tools for social change.
In Hell to Pay, Barbara Olson recounts Hillary's own, personal "decade of greed" and reveals the paranoia of a first lady whom even a Clinton confidant has accused of operating a virtual "secret police" unit to destroy presumed enemies—including such lowly staffers as cooks and valets.
Olson shows a woman who, far from "standing by her man," is a political Machiavellian—a wife who reviews her husband's "bimbo eruption" files while defending him; and a feminist who supports and abets a serial adulterer, sexual harasser, and alleged rapist in order to maintain her own grip on power.
Far from being unstained by the Clinton scandals, Olson shows how "in scandal after scandal, all roads lead to Hillary" and how, iwht supreme irony, the most powerful woman in the world has won sympathy—after the Monica Lewinsky scandal—as the globe's premier "victim."
But perhaps most important than the scandals, and even Hillary's relentless drive for power, is the vision Hillary wants to impose on the country. It is a vision shaped by some of the most radical thinkers of our time, a vision that harkens back to social engineering on a grand scale, and that gives freedom a distant second place to government control
No one has better penetrated the political rise of Hillary Clinton than Barbara Olson.
In celebration of the tenth anniversary of It Takes a Village, this splendid edition includes photographs and a new Introduction by Senator Hillary Rodham Clinton.
A decade ago, then First Lady Hillary Rodham Clinton chronicled her quest — both deeply personal and, in the truest sense, public — to help make our society into the kind of village that enables children to become smart, able, resilient adults. It Takes a Village is "a textbook for caring.... Filled with truths that are worth a read, and a reread" (The Dallas Morning News).
For more than thirty-five years, Senator Clinton has made children her passion and her cause. Her long experience — not only through her roles as mother, daughter, sister, and wife but also as advocate, legal expert, and public servant — has strengthened her conviction that how children develop and what they need to succeed are inextricably entwined with the society in which they live and how well it sustains and supports its families and individuals. In other words, it takes a village to raise a child.
In her new Introduction, Senator Clinton reflects on how our village has changed over the last decade — from the impact of the Internet to new research in early child development and education. She discusses issues of increasing concern — security, the environment, the national debt — and looks at where we have made progress and where there is still work to be done.
It Takes a Village has become a classic. As relevant as ever, this anniversary edition makes it abundantly clear that the choices we make today about how we raise our children and how we support families will determine how our nation will face the challenges of this century.
Drawing on her experiences as daughter, mother, public servant, and long-time child advocate — and on her observations of children and families across the country and around the world — the First Lady reflects on the needs of children and the possibilities they suggest for rekindling a better quality of family and community life in today's fast-paced, fragmented world.
When Hillary Clinton spoke of "a vast right-wing conspiracy" determined to bring down the president, many people dismissed the idea. Yet if the first lady's accusation was exaggerated, the facts that have since emerged point toward a covert and often concerted effort by Bill Clinton's enemies—abetted by his own reckless behavior—which led inexorably to impeachment. Clinton's foes launched a cascade of well-financed attacks that undermined American democracy and nearly destroyed the Clinton presidency.
In vivid prose, Joe Conason and Gene Lyons, two award-winning veteran journalists, identify the antagonists, reveal their tactics, trace the millions of dollars that subsidized them, and examine how and why mainstream news organizations aided those who were determined to bring down Bill Clinton, The Hunting of the President may very well be the All the President's Men of this political regime.
