“Slick-Willie” derides Tea Partiers
   “Slick-Willie” Clinton uses the anniversary of the ‘Oklahoma City’ bombing to disparage the Tea Party movement in a New York Times Op-Ed piece.    Not only was this on his watch, but Khobar Towers, Saudia Arabia, and the attack on the Branch Dividian Compound, Waco, Texas, as well.  “Slick” also laid the ‘groundwork’ for the 9/ll attacks:

Timothy McVeigh and Terry Nichols bombed the Alfred P. Murrah Federal Building in downtown Oklahoma City on April 19, 1995. The blast claimed 168 lives, including 19 children under the age of 6; more than 680 people were injured; 324 buildings damaged or destroyed; 86 vehicles destroyed or burned and shattered building glass in a three mile square area. This is the most destructive act of domestic terrorism in American history.

The Siege at the Branch Davidian Compound, Waco, Texas, began on February 28, 1993, when the United States Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, and Firearms (ATF)–under the direction of “Slick’s” Att’y General,  Janet Reno–attempted to execute a search warrant on the property. An exchange of gunfire resulted in the deaths of four agents and six followers of David Koresh. A subsequent 51-day siege by the Federal Bureau of Investigation ended on April 19 when fire destroyed the compound. The fire was started during an attack by U.S. Army tanks and armored personnel carriers.  Seventy-six people (24 of them British nationals) died in the fire, including more than 20 children, two pregnant women, and Koresh himself.

In June 1996, terrorists attacked the U.S. military complex at Khobar Towers in Saudi Arabia, killing 19 Americans and wounding hundreds more.

In October, 1993, Clinton’s retreat from Somalia–where nineteen American soldiers died and 73 were woundedinspired Bin Laden to begin his jihad against the US, thinking we had become a paper tiger. We run away, we won’t hang in there, culminating in the 9/11 attacks.

Actions have always spoken louder than words.

   What was “Slick” doing while all this was going on……? Playing ‘hide-the-sausage’ with any number of White House interns and Clinton Administration staffers!! As Clinton and his ilk are wont to do-he’s using the anniversary of a significant event as a stepping stone to lay blame for these and future acts at the feet of current Tea Party participants as well as previous groups dissatisfied with the government: it’s growth and domination over the American way of life!! And I quote “Slick-Willie” from his blather in the New York Times:

“Slick Willie’s” Op-Ed piece [in part]:
   Americans have more freedom and broader rights than citizens of almost any other nation in the world, including the capacity to criticize their government and their elected officials. But we do not have the right to resort to violence — or the threat of violence — when we don’t get our way. Our founders constructed a system of government so that reason could prevail over fear. Oklahoma City proved once again that without the law there is no freedom.
   Criticism is part of the lifeblood of democracy. No one is right all the time. But we should remember that there is a big difference between criticizing a policy or a politician and demonizing the government that guarantees our freedoms and the public servants who enforce our laws.   Civic virtue can include harsh criticism, protest, even civil disobedience. But not violence or its advocacy. That is the bright line that protects our freedom.  Fifteen years ago, the line was crossed in Oklahoma City. In the current climate, with so many threats against the president, members of Congress and other public servants, we owe it to the victims of Oklahoma City, and those who survived and responded so bravely, not to cross it again.
 

His wife–Hillary Rob’em Clinton–during a 2003 speech (screeching): I am sick and tired of people who say that if you debate and you disagree with this administration, somehow you’re not patriotic, and we should stand up and say, “WE ARE AMERICANS AND WE HAVE A RIGHT TO DEBATE AND DISAGREE WITH ANY ADMINISTRATION!”

[A {Bill} Clinton speech in 1995] We hear so many loud and angry voices in America today whose sole goal seems to be to try to keep some people as paranoid as possible and the rest of us all torn up and upset with each other. They spread hate. They leave the impression that — by their very words, that — violence is a acceptable. You ought to see — I’m sure you are now seeing the reports of some things that are regularly said over the airwaves in America today. It is time we all stood up and spoke against that kind of (pounding podium) reckless speech and behavior.

Concluding the Clinton Op-Ed:

Finally, we should never forget what drove the bombers, and how they justified their actions to themselves. They took to the ultimate extreme an idea advocated in the months and years before the bombing by an increasingly vocal minority: the belief that the greatest threat to American freedom is our government, and that public servants do not protect our freedoms, but abuse them.

So…. Who’s right, here?? The Clintons–by virtue of his current and previous speeches; her previous speeches–are on opposite sides of the political fence.

Although he now seems to support the “Clown Prince,” early on in the “Campaign of Fluff,” Slick said Fluffy had the political acumen of a “Chicago Thug!!”  She, by her actions and speeches, condoned condemnation and derision of a replublicRAT administration; again, by her actions and speeches, charged any dissention with a democRAT administration as sedicious and treasonous.

   As all Tea Party participants should–I take umbridge with “Slick” implying that any who speak against ‘the government’ are committing a seditious act!!  Clinton takes every opportunity to align the Tea Party movement, Rush Limbaugh, Glenn Beck, Sean Hannity, Michael Savage, et al, with hate speech and ‘impending’ violence!!
   The Tea Party movement [at least members in Rochester, N.Y.]–at it’s inception–subconsciously adopted the combined non-violent–even pacifist–policies of both Dr Martin Luther King, Jr., and Mahatma Gandhi.

American Highway Safety In Peril!
   When the NAFTA agreement was launched on January 1, 1994, one of it’s provisions was that Mexican heavy trucks would have access to all authorized roadways in the United States.  This provision’s implementation was stalled from then until now, citing Mexico’s failure in the areas of:  driver training, driver safety, government, company and driver records accuracy.  Currently, Mexican heavy trucks are allowed twenty miles north of the US-Mexican border.
The Mexican government’s push for the NAFTA provision is referred to as “cross-border” trucking.
   On April 12th, Rep Peter DeFazio [d, Or-4] requested by letter that the Secretary of Transportation, Ray LaHood and the US Trade Representative, Ron Kirk, renegotiate the portion of NAFTA that opens US roadways to unsafe Mexican heavy trucks.  Seventy-seven representatives of both parties signed on to the letter.
A quote from DeFazio’s letter:
   Everyone should call their representative and congratulate them for signing on to this very important letter.  If the respresentative has not signed on, suggest that he/she does!!

“Mexico has no meaningful system for commercial driver’s licenses, drug testing or hours of service. This is a trade agreement that threatens the safety of the American public. Mexico has no right to use tariffs to force unsafe trucks with exhausted over-worked, under-paid drivers into the United States.”

   As a former O-T-R driver with years and miles of experience, I’ve seen Mexican trucks first-hand.  By-and-large, these trucks are “rolling disasters!!”  One must remember that a Mexican driver’s ethics and integrity aren’t the same as Americans’.  They think nothing of driving away from any accident, personal injuries or not;  their trucks’ maintenance levels are no where near the American standards.
Til Nex’Time….
