Exclusive: Bill Clinton sought ´solace´ in
Monica Lewinsky because he could ´no longer
trust´ depressed Hillary after her humiliating
healthcare reform failure, new book reveals

Daily Mail [UK], by Daniel Bates

Original Article

Posted By:KarenJ1, 1/3/2018 2:44:11 PM

Bill Clinton may have cheated on his wife with Monica Lewinsky because he had lost confidence in her when she failed to pass healthcare reform, a new book suggests. (Snip) Author and former senior adviser to Congress K. Ward Cummings paints a scathing portrait of a president and a first lady who failed because ´compromise was not part of their vocabulary.´ Cummings writes that they were hampered by characteristics that would later haunt Hillary´s presidential run; their ´intense secrecy, the unhealthy nature of their personal power sharing, and their insistence on treating healthcare reform like a war in which everyone

Comments:
Of course this will not get the coverage of the latest Bannon allegations. If there is any credence in that headline it appears that Hillary has spent most of her life in a depressed state. She is always depressed about something. How many different excuses have we heard about why Clinton messed around with Lewinsky? No one other than us will say that he is just a dirty old philandering horn dog. This book is not only about Clinton but other presidents as well. Cummings also speaks negatively about Bush and Cheney.

Contd. What I find amazing is that I can´t find ANY information on the author of this book other than in the link below from Penguin books. There is no Wikipedia posting for him. I find it rather odd and disturbing that there is information anywhere that states when he served as an adviser in congress and with whom. That is certainly unusual these days. Just who is this guy? Is he a Democrat? A Republican?

Seriously? All the more despicable if he abandoned her when she was down. However, I strongly suspect there was no relationship to abandon but rather an expedient political partnership masquerading as a marriage with the obligatory flying ashtray to appear to be a normal reaction to a cheating spouse.

Baloney! He was running out on her in Arkansas. He used his state troopers to take him to his women. He was accused of rape at Oxford University and was kicked out. He was accused of sexual assault at Yale. What´s his excuse there? She knew all of that and married him anyway. Birds of a feather... We are lucky America survived those two crooks.

Their "marriage" was never about love. It was about power and ambition. If the country found out in the 80´s that the Hildebeast preferred women, she never would have made it to 2016. Bill was just cover. He needed a smart and wily "wife" to further his own ambitions while still maintaining his alley cat ways.
Gotta hand it to them. It worked for him and almost worked for her.

That excuse is one for the Books! Bill went after Monica because she made him feel like a Big Shot. She no doubt told him how wonderful he was (while Hillary was telling him he was a stupid, no good, Alley cat). She told him how Handsome and built up his Ego (while Hillary was tearing him down). He loved Monica because she was adventurous and willing. Hillary wasn´t! This story is as old as they come. Yes, it probably was Hillary, and her screaming at Bill that drove him out of the House, but it was BILL who made the decision to put his presidency at risk by his dalliance with an Intern! No excuse for that at all!!

For 37 years seeing Chelsea has reminded him of how Hillary cheated with Webb Hubbell. Maybe that´s why Bubba cheated with all those women.

I suspect William of Ockham might suggest the reason he cheated was simply that he´s an incurable horndog who had the opportunity.

"Solace" comes in many forms. A 21-year-old thong-snapping, pizza-delivering intern stuffed under a desk in the Oval Office is not "solace." Try "opportunism." Try "exploitation." Try "lowdown horndawg." Not "solace."

Adam Rippon, in his own words, is “not a gay icon or America’s gay sweetheart.” No, “I am just America’s sweetheart.

Since, he’s become one of the most recognizable stars of these Olympics, a celebrated member of the gay community, as well as

Friday on MSNBC’s “All In,” Rep. Jerry Nadler (D-NY) said Russian interference with U.S. elections and political processes that resulted in 13 indictments against Russian nationals was “equivalent” to the attack on Pearl Harbor by Japanese in 1941. Partial transcript as follows: NADLER: My reaction to the news is this is absolute proof of what we knew all along and what the president has denied, namely that we were attacked. This is a very serious attack against the United States by a hostile foreign power, an attack against our election process, our entire governing process. We know that the attack

The Bolshevik Revolution turned 100 last October. As Friday’s indictment of Russia´s Internet Research Agency reminds us, it´s been 100 years of tyrannical and murderous Russian regimes working to subvert democracy wherever they can and distort American public opinion by any means they can devise.

The specificity here is pretty damning. The FBI released a stunning admission today admitting they received prior a specific warning about Broward County Nikolas Cruz and his threats to carry out a school shooting. The FBI took no action. (Snip) The backdrop of this admission is especially troublesome as the FBI previously also admitted they were forewarned about the Tsarnaev brothers in the Boston Marathon Bombing 2013 and did nothing; and perhaps even more disturbing was the prior warning about the 2016 Orlando Pulse Nightclub shooter Omar Mateen.

Federal deportation officers staged one of the biggest enforcement actions in years against businesses in Los Angeles this week, arresting 212 people and serving audit notices to 122 businesses who will have to prove they aren’t hiring illegal immigrants. Nearly all of those arrested were convicted criminals, according to U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement. ICE said it targeted Los Angeles because it’s a sanctuary city, meaning it refuses to fully cooperate with federal authorities on deportations from within its jails. That means agents and officers have to go out into the community, said Thomas D. Homan, the agency’s deputy director.

The nation’s adoration of moderate former Democratic President John F. Kennedy continues, making him the most popular recent president, according to a new survey. A new University of Virginia Center for Politics-Reuters/Ipsos survey, released in advance of President´s Day, found on a 1 to 10 rating that Kennedy had the best, followed by Ronald Reagan and Barack Obama. And while another recent poll found that Reagan was the past president most wanted to return to the White House, it is now Obama at the top.

Special counsel Robert Mueller is not yet done investigating whether the Trump campaign colluded with Russia during the 2016 election after indicting 13 Russian nationals and three Russian entities for seeking to interfere in the 2016 election, according to a report Friday. The indictments cover just a portion of the investigation, which is expected to continue on for months, a person familiar with the probe told Bloomberg. The probe is also seeking to determine if Trump obstructed justice, the person said. Mueller has not publicly confirmed that his team has ever looked into possible efforts obstruct justice.

The criminal indictment of 13 Russians for allegedly trying to influence “U.S. political and electoral processes” provides no evidence of any collusion between these Russians – or any other Russian officials – and the Trump campaign in the 2016 presidential race. While the description of alleged Russian activities is very troubling, it is important to note that the indictment makes no mention of any hacking or other activity that changed ballots, vote counts, or actually interfered with the election. In essence, the indictment is for trying to run the typical type of public misinformation campaign that the Soviet KGB was

In June, 2006, Donald Trump taped an episode of his reality-television show, “The Apprentice,” at the Playboy Mansion, in Los Angeles. Hugh Hefner, Playboy’s publisher, threw a pool party for the show’s contestants with dozens of current and former Playmates, including Karen McDougal, a slim brunette who had been named Playmate of the Year, eight years earlier. In 2001, the magazine’s readers voted her runner-up for “Playmate of the ’90s,” behind Pamela Anderson. At the time of the party, Trump had been married to the Slovenian model Melania Knauss for less than two years; their son, Barron, was a few
